Beast Wars Two QuestArchive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Beast%20Wars%20QuestCharacter info pastebin: https://pastebin.com/fqsyvZJwTwitter: https://twitter.com/BeastWarsQuestGeneral Rules15 min voting period after each main post. Write-ins votes are welcomed/encouraged. Votes that are non-contradictory and add to the narrative will be considered. Think 'Rule of Cool'Combat mechanics/skill test will be done using best 3 out of 5 rolls of 1d100, unless otherwise specified. Modifiers may come into play depending on the PC's actions which can improve odds and vice versa as the QM sees fit. The QM will do their best to inform players of when such modifiers will come up during votes. (Example: Aim at a target at long range with a scattershot weapon will require a higher roll to make a successful hit than a normal blaster weapon).Strong character relationships with NPCs can also benefit the PC as it will improve battle synergy, interactions, skill test, etc. Of course the vice versa can come into play as well. A failed mission may have consequences but result in unforeseen outcomes (In the show, Tarantulus, Blackarachnia, & Quickstrike were supposed to secure an energon post. The Maximals interfered, resulting in the loss of the post BUT Tarantulus gained a new lair.). A Predacon can always sabotage missions to make other bots look incompetent with a persuasive skill check. Just be careful as they may do the same.Keep an eye out at your energon build up levels; too much time in robot mode outside of a structure, such as a base, can cause negative impacts on your combat maneuvers/skill test, including potential loss of spark. In the event of loss of spark, pending the results of a vote, a time lapse in the narrative will happen and a new stasis pod will fall. (Roll for new character or with a high relation level, a blank protoform will descend and your allies will reignite your spark)Last time on Beast Wars: Nightracer emerged from her stasis pod, endured multiple folks shooting at her.
The trip to the Axalon has been quiet; you've had a rough day. It makes you wonder if you've made the right decision leaving behind the one bot that didnt try killing you the first time they saw you. But you've made your choice to join the Maximals.You fly above the tiger and the rat. You cant help but feel that they might be a bit intimidated by you after having torn off that red lizard's head off. But damn if it didnt feel good just to let loose."How much further?" you call down to them."Oh, well we're getting close. We're expected so Sentinel should be powered down." says the rodent. "The Preds should be gone by now.">"So who's Sentinel">"Why dont you tell me more about you Maximals">Just travel quietly>Write in

writingHow's everyone today? Still tryin to shake off a bit of the sugar coma sleep last night
>>2032659I'm good.Sad I had to put my flesh suit back on, but the skeleton war only lasts for a night as we all know.So how are our two, allies, taking to having a very agitated bird flying overhead who just tore off someone's head with her bare claws?
>>2032670Yea, going back to the daily grind blows.As for your allies, you've definitely made an impression and since the consensus is for Hoottits to bully her fellow maximals, its only gonna get more...interesting.
>>2032702>https://pastebin.com/fqsyvZJwDo we have a new info pastebin for our Owl? The link's still to Warpath.
>>2032734Yea i'm working on getting everything updated here and there. Should be completed by the end of the week
>"So who's Sentinel">"Why don't you tell me more about you Maximals""So who's Sentinel?"Rattrap looks up towards you, flinching a bit as you fly down a bit closer. "Sentinel is our defense gird; Rhinox whipped it up to protect the base. Keeps the Preds at bay.""Whats the matter?" You float down a bit closer, eyeing him up. "You seem...unease..."The rat gives Tigatron a look before turning back towards you, clearing his throat. "Um...hee...Well Its...Its nothing. Nope no problems here."Aw, do you make him nervous? This could be fun. You fly around him, switching form his left side to the right. He whips his head back and forth while you keep teetering on the edges of his blind spot. "Well then why dont you tell me more about you Maximals?"He makes more of those uneasy sounds; amusing in their own right. You can't tell if it bothers the tiger or amuses him that the rat's so uneasy. "Well, ahem. We were explorers, you see. Sent on a mission when the Predacons stole a cybertronian relic. We were the closest ship to pursue and got pulled along for the ride to this planet.""Just how many Maximals are there?""Well at the current time, including your feathered self, eight." He begins to go into description of the other Maximals.>OPTIMUS PRIMAL or "Boss Monkey" – Black Gorilla. Leader of the Maximals. Apparently big on speeches>RHINOX – Tan Rhinoceros. Defense specialist and inventor for the Maximals. Builds and maintains tech for the Maximals. >RATTRAP – Grey Rat. Master Spy and demolitions expert. Bit of a blow hard. Though something about his beast form makes your mouth water.>CHEETOR – Yellow Cheetah. Youngster of the group and a bit of a hot head. Sounds trigger happy. Might avoid.>DINOBOT or "Chopperface"– Brown Velociraptor. Former Predacon who switched sides. Wonder if he's anything like Waspinator, but sounds more like that fire ant if not more rebellious.>TIGATRON (the Barbarian?)- White Tiger. Long range scout to the north. Bit quick on the trigger. Seems to prefer living in the wild than being part of the Maximals. Wonder if thats a choice anyone can make. >AIRAZOR or "Birdlady" – Black and Tan Falcon. Aerial Scout. Another female; another flier. Wonder if these Maximals have a type. Wonder if she gets shot at as much as you do. Hmmm.The Maximals seem like an eccentric bunch. Maybe there's something in the water or the air here. Judging from the tigers varying facial expressions to the nicknames and descriptions given, you take it you're not getting the full story on these Maximals. Of course you could try to 'convince' the rat to give you a more proper briefing or you could always try to charm him and the tiger. But maybe you should wait till you see the other bots for yourself.>"So where do I fit into your little organization?">"What about the Predacons? What can you tell me of them?">"Ugh, look I've had a rough day. How about one of you 'gentlemen' carry me back to the base?" >Write in
>>2032879>>"What about the Predacons? What can you tell me of them?"
>"What about the Predacons? What can you tell me of them?""Well your description of the Maximals have been most...enlightening. What about these Predacons?""Well you've encountered quite a few of them by the sounds of it," Tigatron mentions. "But I'm sure they gave you a rose colored perspective to what they're really like."Of course, who wouldn't give a more favorable perspective of their side while recruiting for their side of a war? You weren't born yesterday. Well you know what you mean.Tigatron is about to open his mouth about the matter, when Rattrap chimes in to his encyclopedic knowledge of the subject. Seems like the rat likes to talk. >MEGATRON aka the Royalty – Large Purple Tyrannosaurus Rex. Dangerous, cunning, says yes a lot. Sounds like a bit of an insufferable narcissist >SCORPINONK – Grey Scorpion. Second in command; massive brown noser. Bit of a techie but with a reputation of incompetence. >TARANTULUS – Green and Purple Spider; Mad Scientist; emphasis on the mad part. Scheming lunatic. Watch out for his webs and cybervenom. Might have dodged a bullet here.>TERRORSAUR – Red Pterodactyl. One of Megatron’s main flyers, but his loyalties are questionable. Currently without his head. >WASPINATOR – Green and Yellow Wasp. Poor reputation from the rat and tiger. Was friendly enough to me. Hope he's alright.>BLACKARACHNIA – Gold and Black Spider. Her stasis pod was snagged by the Predacons and she was reprogrammed to their side. Rat seems to think she and you have a bit in common. You'll assume he's referring to your skills and natural talent. If not, he's going to find himself real intimate with your talons.>INFERNO aka Subcommander Kiss Butt- Red Fire Ant. Another reprogrammed Maximal. Fanatically devoted to Megatron. Enjoys burning things.The three of you finally reach the Axalon, a sizable craft on the ledge of cliff and waterfall. Not much else minus the rocky terrain. Definitely not a five star resort."Whelp, home sweet home." Rattrap says. "Rattrap to Rhinox. Drop the landing pad. We're coming in.""One moment." A gruff sounding voice replies over the comlink. "Good job on finding the Maximal.">"Um excuse me, I found them. All they did was put you in danger">"So you live in this scrap heap? Willingly?">"Eh, its not a cybertronian penthouse, but i guess it'll do.">"Those security guns are off line right?" >Write in
>>2033077>>"Eh, its not a cybertronian penthouse, but i guess it'll do."
>>2033077>>"Um excuse me, I found them. All they did was put you in danger">"Those security guns are off line right?" >So help me, if someone shoots at me again this cycle I will make what happened to that headless lizard look tame.
>>2033077>>"Um excuse me, I found them. All they did was shoot at me and make smart remarks."Also where's a bed and a drink, I've had a bad day and if someone else shoots at me it's going to get a lot worse for /everyone/ involved.
writinghaha loving these write ins
"Um excuse me, I found them. All they did was shoot at me and make smart remarks."There's a bit of silence. Both from the other side of the comlink and from your compatriots out side. Tigatron just shakes his head. "You don't intend to keep harping on that do you?""Hey you saw what happened to the headless lizard right? I've had a bad day and if I see another blaster, what i did to him will look tame by comparison.""Um Rhinox, anytime please."You see the platform come down with a large black ape standing on it. This must be 'the boss monkey.""Greetings. I'm Optimus Primal, leader of the Maximals. Forgive me, I didnt catch your name?" Well finally. Someone other than Waspinator with manners. "Nightracer. Don't suppose there's an extra bed prepped and maybe a replicator. Its been an eventful day."He smiles. "So I've heard. Come on up. We'll get you situated." He looks past you as you bird walk onto the platform. "Tigatron, thanks for the help. Don't suppose you'll be looking to stick around?"You turn your head around almost 180 degrees to look at him, an air of smugness on your face."Yeesh, thats just creepy." Rattrap retorts under his breathe as he gets on the elevator.>"Come on tiger. You can help me think of ways that you can repay me for earlier.">"You're not coming with us?">Say nothing. You've teased him enough>Say nothing. You've seen enough of the cat for a stellar cycle>write in
>>2033215>>"Come on tiger. You can help me think of ways that you can repay me for earlier."
>>2033215>>"Come on tiger. You can help me think of ways that you can repay me for earlier.">What was that Rodent?

>>2033282well waspinator isn't used to non predacons not opting to immediately slag him so he's keen on this
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>2033261Hoot hoot!
>>2033291Honestly if we can get him to join the maximals he'd be wrapped around our finger so fast his head would spin.And let's be honest, being pussywhipped to someone that actually gives a fuck if he lives or dies is such an improvement to his life it's frankly ridiculous.
>>2033308Haha true enough, that said if you guys keep rolling like this>>2033302pretty much every maximal will be wrapped around your fingerwriting
>"Come on tiger. You can help me think of ways that you can repay me for earlier."You lock eyes with the white tiger, laying it on thick. "Very well, I can stick around. For awhile." He hangs his head downward as he transforms and gets on the lift.>[INFLUENCE ON TIGATRON GAINED] This will be expanded upon depending on how frequently you bully other bots"Glad to hear it Tigatron. You should stop by more often." Optimus says. Seems he didnt catch your persuasive abilities. The lift rises into the ship, making you a bit uneasy. You're not sure what quite to expect but its the closest thing to civilization here. You reach the top into the heart of the operation, the Maximal command center. There's several command stations along the perimeter as well as a large central conference table. The far side has a CR chamber that looks to be in use, not that you wouldn't mind having a go at it. If you recall, the ant did get a shot on you and while internal systems can repair damage, CR chambers are more thorough. "Welcome aboard the Axalon, Nightracer. Lets proceed with introductions, shall we?"He transforms from his beast mode to his robot form. It appears everyone inside is transformed. You decide to do the same."You dont have to worry about energon build up in here, the ship's protected." A bright eyed and overly enthusiastic yellow and blue robot comes up immediately. "I'm Cheetor, by the way.""Nightracer. Charmed I'm sure.""Easy, Spots. This one's a firecracker.""Shut up, Rattrap. I'm sure Nightracer has been through alot." Optimus says. He turns back to you. "As for the rest of the Maximals, thats Rhinox over there by the main terminal. Dinobot is currently inside the CR chamber and Airazor is doing a quick patrol to ensure the Predacons have left the region."Rhinox nods quietly to you as Rattrap walks over to join him. "We're glad we-I mean you found us in time. We're not sure how but it seems the Predacons detected you first and attempted to scramble our scanners.""So then the 'royalty' had his circuits in a snarl trying to find me and sent that flaming freak to my pod?""Indeed." TIgatron says with a bit of sternness in his voice until you catch his gaze, which almost reminds him that you still expect him to repay you."Well, its cool that you came out before he reached you. Better dead then Pred." Cheetor says. The youngster seems bent on trying to impress you. And here you though cats we're independent. >Talk to Cheetor "Be a dear and get my room ready.">Talk to Optimus, "We need to have a discussion about firearm etiquette">Talk to Rhinox and Rattrap, "So thats why it took you guys so long?">Talk to Tigatron "So about that favor...">Write in
>>2033427>Talk to Cheetor "Be a dear and get my room ready.">Talk to Optimus, "We need to have a discussion about firearm etiquette"
>>2033427>Shut up, RattrapOptimus told someone to shut up? Wut?
>>2033449He and the other maximals did that to Rattrap all the timehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjqLEur1dNY
Give me a quick 1d100 roll. Threshold for this is pretty low on Cheetoralso writing

Rolled 87 (1d100)>>2033470
>>2033470He's always eager to please, also when his balls drop he's going to be a problem.Provided we don't find a bot for him to latch his, ahem, affections on first.
>>2033511Shit sorry I'm late Primus, super excited about the quest.
>>2033511Hey! You're not Primus!But I am a dumbass. Narf.
>Talk to Cheetor "Be a dear and get my room ready.">Talk to Optimus, "We need to have a discussion about firearm etiquette"You feel this is a golden opportunity. Cheetor seems all to eager to please. Sweet kid, but it makes him an easy mark for an infiltrator. You'd feel guiltier doing this to your fellow Maximals but they really dropped the ball on find you and their impulse control problems when it comes to their blasters."Oh Cheetor, I'm quite exhausted from today's ordeal, would you be a dear and get a room for me ready."His eyes go wide and he gives you a big thumbs up. "You can count on me." You're not sure if its his beast form or his robot mode, but the kid moves quickly down the hall. You decide to take further advantage of this. "Tigatron maybe you should give him a hand."He seems surprised by your request but simply nods and far more controlled, walks down the same hallway.Optimus cocks an eye brow. "Well, you certainly have a way with your fellow bots.""What can I say I'm a team player. By the way, we need to have a discussion about firearm etiquette." "Oh?" He crosses his arms. You can hear Rattrap muttering something as Rhinox chuckles. You really need to have a talk with the mouse."Yes. See, while I was still trying to figure out my place on this planet, you know having just landed and all? The Predacons, well two of them, fired on me, one was kinda sweet in his own odd way, but the tiger opened fire on me while i was speaking with Waspinator."Optimus doesn't seem too shocked by Tigatron's behavior. "Well he probably was afraid you had become a Predacon. Or that you were already one of them, possibly even reprogrammed to do harm.""Trust me their recruitment pitch is in desperate need of revision.""I'll bet.""Beside the point, he nearly shot me on multiple occasions, even when I was tryin to find a peaceful option here." You place one of your hands on your hip as the other covers your forehead. "Seriously, if he hadn't eventually listen to reason, I would've joined Waspinator to go meet this Megatron or Royalty or whatever in the pit they call him."Optimus puts his hands up. "I get it." He's quiet for a moment. "That is troublesome and frankly, doesn't really sound like Tigatron to fly off the handle like that. I'll take this under advisement. That said, thank you for give us a chance." "Yea well," you break eye contact for a minute. "the red flying lizard help make the final decision easier.""Trust me Optimus on this one. You don't want to make Hooters mad.">"Is he a valuable member of this crew? I mean, would anyone miss him if he suddenly disappeared?">"Shut up, Rattrap. I haven't eaten yet, and you're looking tasty">Drop it and let Optimus handle it>Draw your sniper rifle (Bluff taking a shot at him)>Write in
>>2033567>>"Is he a valuable member of this crew? I mean, would anyone miss him if he suddenly disappeared?">>"I mean he's so short you probably wouldn't notice him missing anyways."Wait, are we Rattrap size as well? If so that makes it funnier.
>>2033559>>2033561haha Heya, always happy to see regular questers
>>2033567>Says the smart ass talking food buffet.>"Is he a valuable member of this crew? I mean, would anyone miss him if he suddenly disappeared?"
>>2033580Actually yea, maybe a bit taller like Airazor but she's pretty short too
>>2033589So you could say we're....shortstacked?Hahaha, just for research you know, hahahaha.
>>2033592Sure, why not? if that's the direction we wanna go. Might have to put 'size' to a vote though i recall someone last time asking if the MC was a fembot if you could get 'energon storage enhancements'
>>2033597>'energon storage enhancements'R-really?
>>2033601...YupMy reaction was pic related
>"Is he a valuable member of this crew? I mean, would anyone miss him if he suddenly disappeared?""Says the smart ass talking food buffet."Rattraps chair spins around rapidly, "What?"You turn to Optimus, half talking to him and half insulting the rodent. "Is he a valuable member of this crew? I mean, would anyone miss him if he suddenly disappeared?"You see Rattrap taken aback by this comment. Even the other Maximals seem to flinch. "I mean he's so short you probably wouldn't notice him missing anyways.""Ha!" you hear Rhinox say as he chuckles.Optimus shakes his head, with a smile. "Oh, Dinobot's going to love having you here.""You hear that rodant? Hope you're bot enough for dinner for two."The other Maximals chuckle more as Rattrap just gives you a dirty squinted stare. "Why don't you go play with the pussycats, Hooters? You can choke on hairballs together.""They're called pelts, genius and you usually find little tiny mouse bones in them."Optimus puts his hand up to stop you two. "Thats enough. That said, I'm sure Rattrap's right. Cheetor and Tigatron will have most likely got your room ready. You've had a long day, go ahead take a rest.">Head on down the hall to find your room>Talk to someone else (specify)>Tease Rattrap some more>Write in
>>2033726>>Head on down the hall to find your roomHope it's got a big ass bed.
>>2033726>>Head on down the hall to find your room
>>2033726>Head on down the hall to find your room"Later Brunchtrap!"
>>2033726>>Head on down the hall to find your roomWe've got in our bullying quota in for the day.Let's talk to the others once we've got some sleep.Got to give a good impression after all.
>>2033760We need to come up with a library of meal-related Rattrap puns.
>>2033761We've got to add cheese in there at some point.Also can I be glad that even after our races have long since parted, knowledge of our culture has remained in the mind of transformer kind?I mean it's of a tiity-bar, but still!
>Head on down the hall to find your room"Sounds good." You flutter your head feathers. You turn to the rodent one last time, "Catch you later Ratsnack."You head on down the hallway of the ship. It takes you a bit but you find the area of where the Maximals quarters are at. You make a mental note of certain rooms, namely the rats 'for reasons'. You finally notice Tigatron's form standing in the door way."Boo.""Oh, Nightracer. We've got your room mostly set up. Had to clear out some storage cases."Cheetor pops his head back into the doorway, almost knocking Tigatron out of the way. "Hey Nightracer, everythings pretty much cleaned and set up."You're not quite sure what was set up. Seeing as its fairly sparce in its decorations and the bed is functional but not exactly what you were hoping for or expecting. "Hmm I would prefer a larger bed to rest on...""I'm on it! I think we have something in storage." Cheetor bolts out of the door, knocking into the two of you. Tigatron backs up a bit."My apologies. It wasn't deliberate.""Its fine. So..""So...You brought up making amends. I've apologized several times, but something tells me thats not enough for you.""Hmm this is true...""What will make this situation right?"A good question what would make this right? You've bullied him enough that you could pretty much ask for anything at this point, provided he can fulfill your request.>I'll take that drink>I'm messing with you tiger, i just want peace and quiet.>Write in suggestions
>>2033838>>I'm messing with you tiger, i just want peace and quiet.
sorry for the wait, had a hell of a time trying to think of anything
>>2033838>I'm messing with you tiger, i just want peace and quiet.
>>2033838>>I'm messing with you tiger, i just want peace and quiet.That being said If you can find out where they keep the good booze on this luxury liner we'll be friends for life.
in the process of writingwill probably be the last one for the night; might run either tomorrow or fri after going out
>I'm messing with you tiger, I just want peace and quiet."I'm messing with you tiger, I'm just looking for some peace and quiet."He looks confused at you for a moment, as if he's trying to figure you out. He seems to relax after a bit, "Thank the matrix. You are a strange one."You chuckle. "You're to serious, stripes. Live a little." You're about to turn back into the room but immediately turn back to him. "That being said, if you can find out where they keep the good booze on this luxury liner, we'll be friends for life."He returns your chuckle, shaking his head. "Don't expect the good stuff. I'm pretty sure Rattrap has that."Slag. Of course the rodent would be hogging it. "Well then you wanna help the kid out? Wouldn't want him to hurt himself doing favors for me."He chuckles, "I'll see what I can do.""Might also suggest he take a cold oil bath. Kid's gonna over heat a processer." You wink with a smile. "After he finds the new bed, of course."He graciously bows, "Of course, mi'lady. I'll handle it."You take a step back, give him a hand wave and use your Tactical Cloak to disappear as the door slides close. You deactivate the cloak, satisfied with your performance with the others. Have to admit, its not so bad here so far. Sure, some of the Maximals are easily played, but you dont have any true hostile intentions towards them. Its just your nature.Still, you do hope they return with your bed and drink. You wouldn't want them to land back in your talon's grip again.[end]That'll do it for todays run. I'll be around for awhile to answer any questions, comments, complains, etc
>>2033897Thanks for the run Covenant, see ya later.
>>2033897Do we have flight in Robot mode? Airrazor, Terrorsaur and Waspinator could all fly in both modes, but Inferno and Primal were robot-mode only flyers, so I assume the reverse could be technically true.(Also, what was the Maxmal command structure outside of Optimus? I'd always assumed Rhinox was second-in-command, but when it mattered in 'chain of command' Rattrap got the post at Optimus' dictat.)
>>2033897Well now Nightracer sounds lile Sombra in my head. Thanks for the run Primus!
>>2034715And now I am imagining Nightracer as a weird cross between Ana's general demeanor/sniperness and Sombra's trolling/bullying.
>>2034487Yes you do. Because you are basically a flier (having selected an avian for a beast mode) as for the chain of command, Optimus has often put Rattrap in charge due to Rhinox preferring not to lead. In the field, some of the other maximals can be placed in command, Some of the other toyline maximals have the role of commanders and such>>2034715Yeah, not entirely deliberate but when i was trying to think of how Nightracer would make an exit, that image popped into my head and i went with it>>2035848I can see that. i was initially getting a Christie from DOA vibe when we first started but its been fluctuating with player interactions.
shit, i forget, which onee was the pred we brutally mauled again?
I wanted to run tonight, but i'm gonna hold off until tomorrow night (Mon) this way there's a bit of a heads up and i can force myself to work on the pastebin and update it
I want Night racer to have a slight English/ or European accent.
>>2044298Sweet.>>2044599What, like Tracer from Overwatch?
>>2044745I don't play Overwatch.I was thinking more like Sterling from JA2
We'll be starting shortly, just finishing dinner
The door of the CR Chamber rises up. You sought to have your damage repaired after resting for awhile and now you are ready to go. The rest did you alot of good as it cut down your time in the chamber. Plus it helped having the large bed, which you made into a large nest for yourself.As you stretch your arms and servos, you feel ready to tackle anything. Hopefully there's something to do. You see Optimus standing by Rhinox by their main terminal, overlooking a monitor. Rattrap and a large brown and blue robot discussing something. No sign of the cats. >Head over to Optimus and Rhinox>Head over to Rattrap and the other bot>Look for the kitty cats>"Heading out flying. See you guys later. Dont wait up">Write in
>>2048007Find Cheetor and ask him how you have fun around here.
Hmm well it looks like i jumped on too late. i'll keep taking votes; if more show, i'll update. otherwise i'll try for tomorrow at an earlier time

Hey folks, sorry about the lack of updates; real life has become a pain in the ass and leaving me drained when i do have time to update. I'm in the process of writing but i also have to take care of some stuff today; will post around 4 hours from now. But in the meantime while i work on the update (since i'll be able do a come up with some of it before i leave; maybe even post before i go out) Quick vote for the conversation with Rattrap and DinobotBully Rattrap or not>Bully; all day all night>No; lets be posh and polite; first impressions and such
>>2056414>>Bully; all day all nightbully the rat, do it, DO IT FAGGOT(tm)
>>2056414>>No; lets be posh and polite; first impressions and suchAnd then as soon as the rat does something to even halfway deserve it (which he will he's rattrap), switch to>Bully; all day all nightThat way we come off as the bigger 'bot and still get our regular bully fix.
>>2056764changing to this
Ugh, finally home. Friends kept me out longer than i really wanted (wasn't driving so no real choice in the matter)Update coming shortly
>Head over to Rattrap and the other botYou approach Rattrap and the other robot. You'd heard his name before but this is your first time actually seeing him. He's tall. Really tall. They seem to be discussing strategy. "You're getting your software in a snarl. The Preds are long gone.""Precisely the reason we should increase patrols! Megatron's troops manage to infiltrate deep into our territory without our knowledge and nearly stole a protoform.""Yeah, well....its not like they succeeded."Dinobot jabs a sharp claw into Rattrap's chest. "According to Optimus' after-action report, they almost did." He turns to notice you standing listening in. "Fortunately, it seems that our new soldier had the common sense to chose properly."Rattrap looks over to notice you. "Heh, look who finally woke up? Done napping and ordering bots around?"He crosses his arms, casting an intimidating shadow between you and the rat. You had intended to be far more posh in this introduction but the temptation is there. Well who says you can't have your ratsnack and eat it too? "He's not wrong rodent." You use your slight height advantage, thanks to your talon'd heals to use his head as an arm rest for a moment before he bats your arm away. You straighten up as you give the other bot your attention. "The only fortunate thing was me giving these bots a chance to explain themselves for attempting to shoot me on first contact."You hear a faint snarling from the larger robot as he cast his gaze upon the rat. "Well thats what happens when you choose to be chummy with Predacon's, Birdgirl." He looks back at Dinobot. "Seriously, who willingly hangs out with Waspinator?""He was following ME, okay?! I mean sure he's a few screws loose but he's the only one that didn't immediately try to vape me?""Enough!" Dinobot places his hand on his head, shaking it. "This is besides the point. The point, that the cheese eater and I were discussing was the need for patrols. If you hadn't awoken on your own, you'd be kneeling before Megatron right now, swearing your allegiance.""I honestly doubt that." You ruffle your feathers as you roll your eyes. The Dino narrows his eyes at you; you think he's not as much of a soft touch as the cats or the rat. "The ant and wasp or that lizard bird weren't exactly 'recruiter' material."'Regardless, your pod could've been reprogrammed and you wouldn't have had a choice in the matter." He shakes his fist. "Which is why we should be more vigilant to the Predacons activities of late?"He makes a compelling case, but what you have gathered, Rattrap seems to feel it was an isolated incident, namely just to get to you an add you to their ranks. What do you feel?>Rattrap is right, They just wanted you (and who can blame them?)>Dinobot is right, something seems fishy that they could get into their territory undetected>Boring conversation anyway, excuse yourself >Let the bots have their argument; talk to someone else (Specify)>Write in

>Dinobot is right, something seems fishy that they could get into their territory undetected"Yea, I've got to agree with him. They were pretty deep in Maximal territory for it to just be nothing.""Ok then, oh great, wise and brilliant bird. Tell us how they manage to get pass our scanners?" Rattrap flutters his hands mockingly. "How should I know? I've only just got here.""Well then maybe you should put your butt to work figuring out since you and dino boob here are so curious." Dinobot rubs his chin as he overlooks you. "Perhaps...not a bad idea. Even if it came from the rodent." He moves pass Rattrap, shoulder checking him as he approaches you. "A perimeter sweep of the surrounding area to the outer areas could produce results.""Heh, dont come crying to me if you get your servos in a snag. I've got better things to do." Rattrap turns away, heading back to the control console next to Rhinox and Optimus. "Well then, what do you say? Up for a scouting patrol?" He looks you over, like he's trying to gauge what you're capable of based on your appearance. So what do you say?>Sounds like fun. Where am I headed? >Aw asking me out already? Sure I've got time to kill>I thought Optimus called the shots around here? Shouldn't we get clearance?>Nah, but someone should investigate it>Write in

I'm gonna leave this one open and set my alarm to wake me up early so we can make up for my absence.I'll be sure to post on twitter in the morning so we can hopefully get our usual crowd a chance to pop in. Again I apologize for the inconstancy of my updates this past week and half. Thank you guys for your patience and for coming out
we should try be a flirt or a tease all the time or else they will grow immunity to it. We gotta hit them when they least expect it, or when it would have a magnified effect!
>>2058326well i'm sure you wont have to worry about that too much. i'm sure they'll be plenty of moments for you guys to scare the crap out of your allies the next time you rip the head off a predacon
>>2058337Hmm. With our arrival, do the Maximals now have parity in the air with the Predacons? Us and Airazor balance out Terrorsaur and Waspinator as dual-mode flyers, and robot-mode flyers maintain that balance with Inferno and Primal.
>Aw asking me out already? Sure I've got time to kill"Aw are you asking me out already? Sure I've got time to kill." You give Dinobot a smug look. He just stares back at you with a stern sneer and shakes his head. Taking a step back, he transforms back into his velociraptor form. "Hurry up and get ready. I will meet you outside."Sheesh, tough crowd. You hear Rattrap snickering from his seat. You transform back into your owl form and turn your head nearly 100 degrees causing him to shudder as you walk towards the platform. >Head on out and begin your impromptu mission with Dinobot>Speak with Optimus before leaving>Ask Dinobot what exactly we are looking for when you reach the outside>Write in
>>2058996>>Speak with Optimus before leavingJust give him a heads up, ask if he has advice.
>Speak with Optimus before leavingBefore you head out, you flap your wings and move over towards the console Optimus is standing with Rhinox. You flutter your tail feathers at Rattrap as you land in between the two areas. He raises his arm to block but just shakes his head at you as you pant, mockingly sticking your tongue out him. "Hey Optimus, just thought you should know, Dinobot and I are going on a nature stroll. See if we can determine how the Preds have been getting through your scan grid."Optimus turns to you, considering your plan and nods. "Not a bad idea. Just a heads up, Dinobot isn't exactly the most talkative bots so I would keep it strickly business." Rhinox turns to the two of you, "Airazor and Cheetor are also on their patrols. If you get the chance you might want to check in with them and see if they've anything new to report.""Can't they just call in?"The large green bot shakes his head, "Too much energon interference. Besides, I'm sure Airazor would like to make your acquaintance." He gives a half hearted chuckle. "Birds of a feather, and all that." Ugh, really? You and Optimus share a quick glance as the Maximal leader just shakes his head."Yea and I'm certain the pussycat wont mind you paying him a visit." Rattrap chimes in. "Just remember, you're supposed be working out there?">Bully Rattrap by circling over his head with your talons out like you're going to do something but fly to the elevator instead>"Shut up, Rattrap." and head out>"Anything else I should know about before I head out?">Write in
>>2059246>>"Shut up, Rattrap." and head outIt's a right of passage every Maximal needs to say.
>"Shut up, Rattrap." and head out"Shut up, Rattrap." You flap your wings and fly low pass his head, forcing him to duck.You land on the platform as it descends. Reaching the bottom, you see an impatient Dinobot snarling, one of his long toe claws tapping the ground enough to chip away a small spot on the ground. You immediately take to the air. "About time.""Sorry, just letting the ape know we're headed out." You flap your way closer to Dinobot. "So what's the plan?""We head out a few clicks and begin circling around the base; you from the air while i search from the ground. Each time we complete a full sweep, we extend our search.""Thorough." You say with a bit of a yawn."Better to be thorough and certain, than to be lazy and complacent." He snaps back. "Fair enough. Oh, the boss says that Airazor and Cheetor are out and about and we should meet up with each of them while were at it.""Let us focus on the task on hand. This last incursion could only be the first sign of an impending assault on our base or part of an ongoing plan to catch us off guard."Boy this lizard sure does have a one track mind. >Follow Dinobots instructions, and begin your sweep of the surrounding areas>Make contact with Cheetor and Airazor first. Optimus wanted this done>"Maybe we should split up? Cover more ground?">Write in
>>2059448>>Follow Dinobots instructions, and begin your sweep of the surrounding areas.We do need to be thorough. We can check in when the job's done. Business, -then- pleasure.(Also, we seem quite short on players today. I guess that's down to week-old threads not bumping up the board?)
>>2059506Yea I had considered making a brand new thread, but though folks would look here first. Even posted the link on twitter for here.That said, I think i'm just going to call it here. (watch everyone show up later.)Well atleast things are set up for the next thread. I'll do my damnedest to make sure things run smoother and earlier. RL keeps shoving its butt in my face keepin me from getting online when i want toThanks for coming out and I hope to catch you and everyone else next Weds, (maybe throw in Tues to get the ball rolling)
