It is midmorning, and the bug has been successfully reinstalled on the radio, but now you can record and decode its signals. It is Friday, March 27, 101 PA. The sky is partly cloudy, with a threat of rain from the west. From Aubergine to Novgorod is another 170 km of unpaved roads and trails, and you are leaving the 'populated' area of civilization. Neither Pancho nor Lefty have been sighted this morning. Grizelda lands next to the truck and looks around. "We leaving today or what? I'd like to not fly in the rain."
"Where are your friends, gryphon?" Kawai calls out.
"I don't know. Probably sleeping." She picks her teeth with a talon.
"Well, they're supposed to be driving, so..." Kiirga muses.
"Please fetch them for us."
Grizelda is gone for a few minutes, and returns with the other two. Pancho says, "Whew. I slept like a log. Let's go." He hops up in the truck, makes sure everyone is ready, and pulls out of the lot. Lefty follows in the atv. Kawai waves them over before disappearing into her Juggernaut. She turns on her radio opening a line to Kiirga's dragon and the truck's Compu. Kiirga hangs out in the dragon for the time being, waiting around and watching through the dragon's eyes.
"Can you hear me?" Kawai asks.
"I read you loud and clear."
"Let's move out."
"Let's," she agrees. The dragon remains still and silent, under the tarp on the back of the truck as they head off down the road. All is well for the first 20 minutes. However, as Pancho navigates a particularly rough stretch and crests a hill, they see a roadblock ahead.
"What do we have here?"
There is a string of razor wire across the road, and an armored jeep sits to the side. They can see one person behind the gun on top of the jeep, and two on the ground. They all wear power armor, but one of them is not wearing a helmet. She looks familiar.
"Don't touch anything." she removes herself from her Juggernaut, "It is probably rigged. Does anyone have pliers?"
"Probably a CS roadblock... I'll lay low in here with Surry, just in case."
The power armor and jeep are not CS designs, as far as Kiirga can tell. Kiirga watches through her dragon's eyes... Hmm... Maybe it's not CS... but who else would be out here? This was supposed to be the road to a CS base, right?
Kawai just noticed the people in the trees so she returns to her Juggernaut, "I'll shake them out." removes the tarp. Opens up the loudspeaker, "We see you. Surrender peacefully."
Shireen laughs and responds, "Surrender? Noo, come out and talk. We just have some questions." The other person on the ground moves a few paces away from Shireen and the jeep.
Kawai moves her Juggernaut towards the jeep, "Lay down your weapons and come out where we all can see you. Then I will show myself."
Shireen looks at the other two and nods. Jeep guy gets out and removes his helmet, and the third person puts down his rocket launcher and also removes his helmet. The rocket launcher guy says, "We don't want trouble."
Kawai slides out of her mech, smiles at Shireen, "It is good to see you. Does this mean you are up for that sparing match?"
Surreal_Nightmares whispers to Kiirga, "We need them to unload their weapons. We don't want them to be ready if they fight."
Kiirga watches her screen quietly... Huh. Some friend of Kawai's? She moves her hoof away from the weapons controls and smiles lightly... Well, she'll still stay quiet for now. "Kawai seems to know them, that's good enough for me."
Shireen shakes her head. "Afraid I'll have to take a rain check. We're on duty now."
"Which brings up our questions. We're part of the Regional Task Force to Prevent Needless Deaths. We just want to know some things so you might not get killed out there."
"That is considerate of you."
"Can your friends come out, too? We'd like to see them."Kawai waves to her friends to come out.
Kiirga nods. She puts the headset down over the armrest of her pilot's seat, and hops out of it. She puts a hoof to the hatch and the crystals in it glow. The hatch hisses with the opening of the hydraulic locks, and pops open. She peeks her head up and out, most of her obscured by the pilot's suit she was wearing.
The shorter man next to Shireen waves at Kiirga. "Hello." He's not so drunk anymore.
Kiirga climbs out of the mech and stands on its back, giving Surreal_Nightmares the space she needs to climb out, too.
Surreal_Nightmares climbs out after Kiirga, shutting the hatch with a hind leg. She blinks as natural light greets her eyes, her fur looking a bit ruffled.
The tall man next to Shireen says, "Great, great. My name is Jerna. Like Shireen said, we're here to make sure travelers are safe. We do that by inspecting their equipment and making logs of where they're going, how long they'll be gone, and who to contact in case of emergencies. We've reduced needless deaths by 20% thanks to this system."
"May I please see identification?
Jerna points to a gold-painted star on the chest of his power armor. In the middle of the star is written "Security." "Will this work?"
"It will do."
Jerna replies, "Thanks. So, about your destination?"
"Hmm. Ok. And how long will you be in Mt. Helens?"
The smaller man keeps a close eye on the ungulates. "And who can we contact if there's an emergency?"
Kawai fishes a business card from her pocket, "These are my employers." gives the card to Shireen.
Shireen shows the card to Jerna before replying, "Tolkeen military?" She gives the three of you a long look before pocketing the card.
Jerna clears his throat, "Great. Now we just need to do a safety inspection of your vehicle and cargo."
Kawai looks up at Kiirga, "Keep an eye on him."
Kiirga nods. Of course.
Jerna steps forward for Kawai to lead him through the inspection. Kawai points to Kiirga. Kiirga waves down from atop the mech. Jerna climbs ups and inspects the mechs. "Lots of heavy weaponry here. What are you doing in Mt. Helens?" The mechs seem to be in good condition. The dragon has been heavily modified to be controlled by the crystal magic that Kiirga can channel through her hooves. "They look good. Shouldn't have any problems that you can't deal with. But why so heavily armed? Is Tolkeen expanding?"
"We are on assignment. Can't discuss the details."
Shireen says, "Too bad. I do hope you stop here again after you're done out there." Jerna, satisfied with the inspection, hops down and goes to the other man. They move the razor wire from the road and go back to their helmets.
Kawai smiles, "You have my number now. Why not give me a call. My private number is on the back."
The shorter man waves again to Kiirga and Surry and says, "Be safe."
Shireen smiles and replies, "I'll look you up sometime."
Surreal_Nightmares nods. "You too." She turns to Kiirga with a grin. "I thought that it was some kind of sneak attack," she says with a chuckle.
"Don't take too long." Kawai studies Shireen's reaction to their dialog.
Kiirga nods and smiles. "You too." She watches down at them, chuckling softly. Yeah... she thought that, too.
Shireen smiles in a friendly but professional way as their business is concluded.
Kawai hops into her mech and gives Shireen a curt wave before she vanishes inside.
Kiirga does much the same, before slipping down into her dragon and beckoning Surry to do the same.
Pancho is ready to go whenever.
Surreal_Nightmares drops down after Kiirga, quickly settling into a seat.
Kawai hovers onto the truckbed, "日付を持っています！"
Kiirga pulls the hatch back closed, and with a small glow of her hoof, it locks back into place. She sits into her seat, and gently grasps the tarp in the dragon's claw, pulling it back over her tank.
The three guards put their helmets back on and resume the positions they had when you arrived, but keep their guns in a non-threatening way.
"Lefty, I'm ready to go." pulls the tarp over them.
Lefty relays the message to Pancho, who starts the truck and drives off. The guards grow smaller in your sensors, and eventually become too distant to detect. Another 30 km down the road, and the threatening skies open up. It is raining heavily, and the temperature drops ten degrees. Luckily, though, there are no monster attacks or breakdowns. The Missouri river grows ever closer. Pancho calls over Compu, "Hey, what's the plan anyway? Am I just driving up to this gate?"
"Pull over once you see the town. We plan to walk in. Give it about a mile. Right, Kiirga?"
"Sounds good to me."
Kawai waits for them to stop. "Stop on the East side."
Pancho stops on the east side of the river. A rather rickety looking pontoon bridge is the only means to cross the deep and fast-moving water. "I think I see something over there."
Kiirga perks an ear up. "Are we there?"
Lightning flashes. Grizelda lands next to the truck and might be the saddest looking creature you've seen. Soggy.
"What do you see?"
Pancho replies over Compu, "Looks like a gate. Can't see much in this rain, though.”
Kiirga pulls up the map on an auxilliary screen inside the mech and looks at it. "Hmm... this map says that should be the guardhouse."
Kawai ponders for a good few minutes. Once her plan is complete she makes her announcement over their radio, "Take us further away."
While Kiirga is looking at the map on her screen, the radar alert sounds. Kiirga's attention immediately diverts over to the navigation console.
Pancho begins backing up the truck.
"Let's go 5 miles at least."
Two sky cycles appear in the rainy sky. They fly fast circles above the group, from a distance of 5 km.
"Uh, guys? I think we've been spotted."
An amplified voice calls from the western bank of the river. "Exit your vehicles. Do not move anything except your persons. You will be destroyed if you fail to follow instructions." Pancho bails from the truck and follows Grizelda to a puddle free area 20 meters in front of the truck. Lefty abandons her atv and joins her compadres.
Kawai primes up Warhawk's wings.
Kawai whooshes after the sky cycles, tackling the one unlucky enough to be closest. The sky cycles see her coming one kilometer away, and dodges her lunge. The second sky cycle takes aim at Kawai with plasma missile and scores a hit.
Surry prods Kiirga, "Hey, is there any way I can help? My gun is still locked in the truck and I can't get it."
"Alright, Surry, here we go!" The mech's motors start humming to life mere moments after Kawai's attack, but, since the bikes are still out of firing range, she stays in position. "Yeah, yeah, take up position in the secondary gunner's seat, you can work the secondary weapon systems."Surry quickly switches seats, climbing into the gunner's seat and activating the consoles, quickly bringing up available weapons and firing solutions. She brings up a firing solution for a shoulder-mounted mini-missile launcher and fires a single shot at the second sky cycle, testing to see if it will hit. The sky cycles are moving to avoid being shot, while staying steady enough to continue aiming. Surry quickly selects an armor piercing missile and fires a single one at the second sky cycle as a test if it would hit or not. The missile comes very close to the target, and its blast radius damages the sky cycle.
Suddenly, there's a mighty series of flashes and a roar of fire as sixty shells fly at Kiirga's mech from deep in the encampment!The projectiles hit various places on the dragon, causing some surface damage. 'Being fired on, are we?' she thinks, she hears the impacts, and a blinking impact warning appears on the screen in the corner. The mech raises up onto all fours, and the head turns towards the bikes that Kawai is fighting. It runs off towards the bikes to get into range, and, once it is, the mech opens its mouth, and a green energy gathers inside for a moment before blasting off towards the bike that Kawai was not next to, so she won't accidentally hit her friend.
The sky cycles swerve in the air, circling between both of the dragons for a few minutes more. The main base being altered fires a turreted barrage on the black steaming dragon that Kawai is piloting. But our heroes fire back. The sky cycles spins out of control and crashes into the river, where it quickly sinks.The only obstacle now is from the base. Kiirga smirks lightly as the skycyles goes down. "Good hit, Surry!"
Blam! Blam! Blam! Another blast of rail gun fire comes from across the river, again aimed at Kawai's dragon. The high speed projectiles hit Warhawk all over.
Surry smirks as she imagines herself shooting Kawai's Iron Juggernaut mouth... She shakes it off and selects the unknown spiderskull walker, quickly acquiring a firing solution. She prepares to shoot the barrage of four AP missiles again. "I swear to God, these missiles are my drug," she says to no one in particular as she fires them. The missiles dig into foul creation.
Surry smacks her lips and flopsies her ears before selecting the same target and same arms to attack with. She launches her missiles in a barrage of four. Again. Kiirga startles a bit from the loud impact to the front legs of her mech. The damage readout said that that one actually did a bit of damage, too. "Oooh..." She frowns, and, with her sights still set upon the walker, and her hoof glows a little brighter with its commands to the machine. The mouth glows once more, the light sharply defining the many sharp teeth within it for a moment before that light lances out against the walker that had damaged her tank.The lance of light damages the walker. It can no longer use its searchlight, and one of the legs is inoperable. The walker responds by aiming at Surry's missile turret. A flash and loud noise, and another round of rail gun projectiles head towards the dragon.
The pilot, noticing his altitude, decides against jumping out just yet. He waits for another opportunity.
Oct 22 23:46:28 <MikeM> Kawai's go at the spider, then.

Oct 22 23:51:07 <MikeM> Surry's attack
Oct 22 23:53:01 * Surreal_Nightmares sighs at the damage reports the monitors around her bring up. "Dear God, just freakin' die!" she exclaims at the walker. She shows what she means by firing four plasma missiles at it.

Oct 23 00:31:12 <MikeM> You're up, Surreal_Nightmares
Oct 23 00:42:47 <Surreal_Nightmares> (Woops.)

Oct 23 00:48:32 <MikeM> Will Kiirga's next action put our poor spider out of its misery?
Oct 23 00:48:44 <Kiirga> hopefully!
Oct 23 00:51:02 * Kiirga snorts towards the spider. Looks to be on its last legs after Kawai's onslaught. Let's finish this one off, why don't we? She charges the main cannon one more time, and another blast of plasma pours fourth from its mouth to attack the spider.

Oct 23 00:59:25 <MikeM> Surreal_Nightmares' missiles might have better luck this time.
Oct 23 01:01:26 * Surreal_Nightmares facedesks and fires her missiles again, all plasma, all four. "Damn you, just... damn it!"

Oct 23 01:05:34 <MikeM> And Shamon has the next action.
Oct 23 01:06:39 * Shamon extends his knuckle blades and moves to engage Kawai in hand to hand combat!

Oct 23 01:12:24 <Shamon> !roll 1d4

Oct 23 01:12:31 <GameServ> Shamon rolled 1d6: 6 <Total: 6>
Oct 23 01:12:39 <Shamon> (Woo)
Oct 23 01:13:14 <MikeM> (Are you still flying, Kawai?)
Oct 23 01:13:42 <Kawai> (Heavens no. I fought that Spiderwalker on the ground)
Oct 23 01:14:33 <MikeM> The punch strikes the armor, but succeeds only in wiping some dirt off its surface.
Oct 23 01:15:13 <Kawai> (SDC?)
Oct 23 01:16:22 <MikeM> (Yeah. It's just a punch.)
Oct 23 01:17:41 * Kawai rears up, Warhawk's clawed feet pound the ground as they face Shamon, towering over him at 30 feet. Boom! goes a backhand on Shamon.
Oct 23 01:17:53 <Kawai> !roll 1d20+15
Oct 23 01:17:53 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 1d20: 14 <Total: 14(+15) = 29>
Oct 23 01:18:05 <Kawai> (Does I hit the Shamon?)
Oct 23 01:18:14 <MikeM> Definitely a hit
Oct 23 01:18:31 * Shamon (dodge it, totes :v)
Oct 23 01:18:53 <Kawai> !roll 6d4
Oct 23 01:18:53 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 6d4: 4 3 3 2 1 4 <Total: 17>
Oct 23 01:19:34 <Kawai> (Back hands are less than normal punch.)
Oct 23 01:19:44 <MikeM> The impact of the backhand knocks shamon down. His ears ring.
Oct 23 01:20:44 <MikeM> Any action from Kiirga?
Oct 23 01:20:46 * Shamon is on his back now
Oct 23 01:23:33 <Kawai> (That was my turn.)
Oct 23 01:24:07 <MikeM> (noted)
Oct 23 01:24:47 * Kiirga sees Kawai taking on the remaining guard, and starts bringing in the tank on the two, if she sees her friend in need of some assistance. But, as usual, she seems to be holding her own quite well in hand-to-hand.
Oct 23 01:26:11 <MikeM> (Does Shamon continue to fight?)
Oct 23 01:26:58 * Shamon slowly climbs back to his feet and levels his railgun at Kawai
Oct 23 01:28:57 <Kiirga> Gun! She moves in faster, running at Shamon from the side while he's got his attention on Kawai, meaning to tackle him to the ground with her mech's sheer weight.
Oct 23 01:29:33 <Kawai> (Don't you guys have to cross that bridge?)
Oct 23 01:30:11 <MikeM> The pontoon bridge is approximately 50 meters long
Oct 23 01:30:27 <Kiirga> (Oh, right ._.)
Oct 23 01:31:15 * Shamon aims his rockets at Kiirga now too, hearing them moving so quickly.
Oct 23 01:34:52 <MikeM> I think you're up then, Kawai
Oct 23 01:36:03 * Kawai because he is so low he is in leg range. Lifts a single leg and shoves.
Oct 23 01:36:19 <Kawai> !roll 1d20+15
Oct 23 01:36:19 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 1d20: 5 <Total: 5(+15) = 20>
Oct 23 01:36:31 <MikeM> Full body-foot contact
Oct 23 01:37:02 <Kawai> !roll 6d6
Oct 23 01:37:03 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 6d6: 1 5 5 3 2 2 <Total: 18>
Oct 23 01:37:25 <MikeM> The shove knocks Shamon over, and he loses grip on the rail gun and rocket launcher
Oct 23 01:38:11 <MikeM> Kiirga's just arriving from dashing across the bridge.
Oct 23 01:40:04 * Shamon is knocked down again. Something gets knocked loose, and his systems go down. Rebooting...
Oct 23 01:41:37 * Kiirga slows down. Yeah, Kawai is taking care of it just fine. But she will take the opportunity to put the mech's leg down on Shamon's arm and pin it down.
Oct 23 01:42:10 <MikeM> He is suitably restrained
Oct 23 01:42:51 <Kawai> (Who's turn is it?)
Oct 23 01:43:14 <MikeM> Yours.
Oct 23 01:43:53 <Changeling_Nightmares> (Floof.)
Oct 23 01:43:57 * Kawai goes over the the soldier and stomps on it's head.
Oct 23 01:44:17 <Kawai> !roll 1d20+12
Oct 23 01:44:17 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 1d20: 9 <Total: 9(+12) = 21>
Oct 23 01:44:27 <MikeM> That's also 4 actions for everyone, except for Surry, who has one left.
Oct 23 01:44:47 <MikeM> Your foot connects with the armored head
Oct 23 01:44:50 <Kawai> !roll 2d4
Oct 23 01:44:50 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 2d4: 3 4 <Total: 7>
Oct 23 01:45:42 <MikeM> The damage is significant, but the helmet holds.
Oct 23 01:47:10 <MikeM> 6 attacks left.
Oct 23 01:47:23 * Shamon screams, and claws weakly at the helmet
Oct 23 01:47:34 <Kawai> (My turns?)
Oct 23 01:47:39 <MikeM> (Yup)
Oct 23 01:48:04 * Kawai stomps again to stop the screaming.
Oct 23 01:48:11 <Kawai> !roll 2d4
Oct 23 01:48:11 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 2d4: 1 1 <Total: 2>
Oct 23 01:48:39 <Kawai> And again...
Oct 23 01:48:51 <Kawai> !roll 2d4
Oct 23 01:48:51 <MikeM> The helmet might be damaged if your foot connects
Oct 23 01:48:51 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 2d4: 2 2 <Total: 4>
Oct 23 01:50:14 <Kawai> (Not going to be stopped?)
Oct 23 01:50:42 <MikeM> (Shamon could parry to reduce damage.)
Oct 23 01:50:48 <Kawai> !roll 2d4
Oct 23 01:50:48 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 2d4: 3 3 <Total: 6>
Oct 23 01:51:13 * Surreal_Nightmares (Surreal_Nig@Cutest.Floofy.Changeling.Batpone) has joined
Oct 23 01:51:15 <MikeM> But you still have to roll for a hit
Oct 23 01:51:32 <Kawai> !roll 1d20+12
Oct 23 01:51:33 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 1d20: 13 <Total: 13(+12) = 25>
Oct 23 01:51:35 * Shamon raises his arm up over himself. No, please!
Oct 23 01:52:13 <MikeM> The helmet is more and more damaged by Kawai's stomping. It begins to crack.
Oct 23 01:52:27 <Kawai> !roll 1d20+12
Oct 23 01:52:27 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 1d20: 16 <Total: 16(+12) = 28>
Oct 23 01:53:12 <MikeM> It won't last much longer
Oct 23 01:53:14 <Kawai> !roll 2d4
Oct 23 01:53:14 <GameServ> Kawai rolled 2d4: 3 1 <Total: 4>
Oct 23 01:53:47 <Kawai> (I was using called shots. Those take up an extra action.)
Oct 23 01:54:27 * Changeling_Nightmares has quit (Ping timeout: 121 seconds)
Oct 23 01:55:11 <MikeM> (Are you surrendering, Shamon?)
Oct 23 02:00:22 * Shamon reaches over weakly and pulls his body up until his armor is vertical, then he ejects out, getting launched a few feet away. He curls up, cradling his face, before rolling to his back and drawing his pistol, firing shots that punctuate his sentence "just, kill, me, already!" He stops firing, waiting to see the response
Oct 23 02:02:10 * Kiirga 's mech follows the motion of Shamon as he ejects from the mech, and she blinks. Oh, shoot, she recognizes him. "Shamon...?"
Oct 23 02:03:44 * Kawai advances on Shamon.
Oct 23 02:04:41 * Surreal_Nightmares keeps her favorite missile launcher trained on Shamon. She keys the mic, speaking into it, "Stand down, unload the pistol and drop it to the ground."
Oct 23 02:06:08 * Shamon narrows his eyes. This is how it ends? He chuckles, coughs, then softly whispers "C'est la vie" and puts the muzzle of the gun to his temple
Oct 23 02:08:05 <Kiirga> "Whoa, hey!" She bats the gun away from Shamon's temple with a claw of her mech, then holds that same claw up between Kawai and Shamon. "I'll vouch for this one. He's good."
Oct 23 02:08:46 * Kawai examines their surroundings.
Oct 23 02:08:48 * Surreal_Nightmares cracks her jaw before keying the mic again. "I swear to God if you pulled that trigger, I would go to hell and beat your sorry ass until you have some sense into you!"
Oct 23 02:12:15 * Shamon lies there, looking between the two. He's seen much better days.
