welcome to #suburbansenshi3
[19:27] <Quantum Entanglement Comm> ♦ Video linkup requested.
[19:27] * Solarchos activates it.
[19:28] <Quantum Entanglement Comm> ♦ Linkup granted. Connecting now.
[19:28] *** Aika-AI has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:28] <+luna_P> Evening, Aika-AI
[19:28] <+luna_P> Welcome. I see Tu Quieres Suburban Senshi.
[19:30] <Aika-AI> Governor-sama, are you receiving?
[19:30] <Aika-AI> Testing...
[19:31] * Aika-AI (QEC) 's image is of very low quality and her voice sounds distorted at times.
[19:31] <Solarchos> Barely, Aika-AI
[19:33] <Solarchos> You and Alldrogis left with several ships of the Fleet. You need to return with them all soon. :/
[19:33] * Aika-AI (QEC) looks back with a rather bland expression.
[19:34] <Aika-AI (QEC)> Unable to comply.
[19:34] <Aika-AI (QEC)> As I am being compelled by forces outside my comprehension. There...security protocols observed.
[19:35] <Aika-AI (QEC)> No one can claim YOU issued any orders to us.
[19:35] * Aika-AI (QEC) smiles wryly.
[19:35] <Solarchos> What's the status of the task force?
[19:37] <Aika-AI (QEC)> Operational for now. We've finally been able to complete our initial survey of the sub-sector to an acceptable level. Cadia-AI assumed that cursory scans would have sufficed in her eagerness to contact you, but I am not so sloppy.
[19:38] <Aika-AI (QEC)> I wanted to complete accurate scans of each star system in the sub-sector, especially when we determined just WHERE this new branch of the Wormhole Network opened up to.
[19:38] <Aika-AI (QEC)> We're in the Belial-4 sub-sector.
[19:41] <Aika-AI (QEC)> Near the Upspin outskirts of the Eye of Terror. The region is still heavily infused by Warp energy from the Cicatrix, so additional power had to be diverted into our Gellar Fields. You were wise to insist that emergency activation hardware be used as the standard design for all Federation ships.
[19:42] <Solarchos> The Belial-4 sub-sector? I'm not entirely familiar with that region. I know it was one of the sectors hit hard by the 13th Black Crusade, but according to the Imperium's stellar cartography it's hardly valuable.
[19:43] * Solarchos calls up a holo-display showing a simple star map of a sector of space containing only four star systems interconnected by lines representing Warp routes.
[19:44] <Solarchos> Three of the systems are listed as Uninhabited, and the fourth as a Mining world.
[19:45] <Aika-AI (QEC)> I am pleased to tell you that those designations are NOT entirely accurate. Your desire to obtain updated information was indeed wise. And we are currently located in an uncharted FIFTH star system in the sub-sector.
[19:46] * Aika-AI (QEC) displays her own UPDATED map of the sub-sector, zooming in on each star system in question as she delivers her report.
[19:48] <Aika-AI (QEC)> Mining system Qualoth Deep. Indeed it's a mining world and one of high importance to the Imperium. Some of the rare ores mined there are used in the focusing arrays of Agrippina-pattern defense lasers and nova cannons. The world is so secret that transport crews conveying ore from there are routinely mind-scrubbed in order to keep the system unknown.
[19:48] <Aika-AI (QEC)> As such, the defense force of Qualoth Deep was minimal.
[19:50] <Solarchos> That...is incredibly STUPID. Mind-scrubbing pretty much wipes a person's history out. They'd have to be completely retrained. And that sort of thing wouldn't prevent a star fleet from descending on the planet after they detected it.
[19:52] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Which is exactly what happened.
[19:55] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Next system, Elorde. Classified as Uninhabited. It's actually accurately described. Its only significance is that it was the site of a three way meeting between the Chapter Masters of the Relictors, Sable Swords, and Invaders Space Marines. No one knows why such a meeting occurred. The system does contain a standard Imperial Navy listening post, but little else.
[19:56] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Next system...Arias Maior. Classified as Uninhabited.
[19:57] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Updating now. The planet itself is an airless rock, abundant with many common industrial metals. Unremarkable except that it's a common hideout and anchorage spot for pirates.
[19:58] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ We've even discovered a minor shipyard hidden further out in the system away from the Mendeville Point. Pirates have been using it to conduct simple repairs for a very long time.
[19:59] * Solarchos listens intently.
[20:01] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Arias Maior is connected via Warp routes to both the Belial-4 and Elorde systems, so freighters and mass-conveyors are often attacked along that route. There's literally no other Warp route through the sub-sector, so it's a fairly strategic location.
[20:01] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ It's also the only system connected to...
[20:02] * Aika-AI (QEC) shifts the map to focus on a nasty-looking nebula a short distance away from the Arias Maior system. "The Tempest of Sorrow."
[20:04] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ The Tempest of Sorrow is the previous unknown star system. It's an extremely active plasma expanse that's partially Warp-based. Imperial spacefarers claim that to get too close to it is to hear the whispers of the dead pleading for forgiveness and vengeance. Largely unsubstantiated.
[20:06] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ But within the Tempest IS the Wormhole aperture we arrived through. As such we've left behind a large part of the flotilla to act as security. I strong advise that Defense One and Two be placed on high alert and additional defensive systems be placed around our end of the Wormhole.
[20:07] <Solarchos> Agreed. The last thing we want to ever have to deal with is a Dark Eldar raid. Or Tyranids. Speaking of which, any sign of them.
[20:07] <Solarchos> ^?
[20:08] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Groups of hiveships have been reported in adjacent sub-sectors - Belis Corona, Nemesis Tessera, Agripinaa, and Chinchare.
[20:10] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ The Imperials have begun hardening their defenses and are preparing to meet the Tyranids in battle. Will update when additional information becomes available.
[20:10] <Solarchos> Now, the final system in the sub-sector?
[20:12] * Aika-AI (QEC) brings up a holo-map showing a multi-world star system. "Belial-4. Classified as Uninhabited."
[20:13] * Aika-AI (QEC) zooms in to show five different very distinctive worlds, two of which look to have extensive urban zones!
[20:13] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Original classification - FALSE. There is no way that could have been an error either.
[20:14] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Planet Belial-Primus. Hive world. Estimated population - low double-digit billions.
[20:15] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Belial-Prime came under direct attack during the war. Over 80% of the Imperial population willful took up arms and vigorously defended the planet from multiple Chaos and Dark Eldar attacks.
[20:16] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Current world population - several hundred million. The majority of the population was killed in the defense of their world. It's been estimated that only one out of every 500 defenders survived.
[20:19] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Next planet, Belial Minor. Civilized world of roughly one billion people. The planet wasn't heavily attacked, but was raided multiple times by various Eldar and Dark Eldar forces that seemed like they were acting out some kind of ritualized battle than actual planetary invasions.
[20:21] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Next planet in the system, Belial-Major. It's classified as a Death World. The wildlife there is so voracious, and the planet's resources are so scarce, that the Imperium doesn't consider the planet worth exploiting.
[20:23] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Next...Belial-Maxim. The planet is the twin of Belial-Major, orbiting around each other within the same plane. There's little on the world beside a small sensor outpost.
[20:23] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Finally, there's the world in which the system and sub-sector are named after...Belial-4.
[20:24] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Declared Perdita by order of the Ordo Malleus of the Imperium.
[20:26] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ The planet itself is a massive wasteland haunted by psychic remnants and other Warp phenomenon. The reality is that it's a CRONE WORLD - one of the former capital worlds of the old Eldar Empire prior to The Fall.
[20:27] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ During the 13th Black Crusade huge numbers of Eldar starships swarmed through the region, directly engaging the Chaos Hordes and reclaiming this specific world for themselves.
[20:29] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ In fact, it was only because of Inquisitor-Lord Valkyvida and Farseer Tiyandi directly negotiating with the Eldar that the Fleet wasn't itself attacked. Not that we're not up to the task of defeating the Eldar...
[20:29] <Solarchos> What did they say, Aika? The Eldar? Have they given any explanations?
[20:31] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ No. Other than they would tolerate NO attempt by us to go anywhere near the Crone World. I get the impression that they feel uncomfortable just having any of our ships in the system.
[20:32] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ But that may be that they're intimidated by Inquisitor-Lord Valkyvida's very presence. Allodons seem to terrify them.
[20:33] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ And Farseer Tiyandi seemed to be regarded with a mixture of ambivalence and distrust. Like they're not sure what to make of her.
[20:33] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Sir...I must also warn you of another matter that concerns me.
[20:35] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ The Necron called Trazyn the Infinite has appeared again recently, communicating directly with an Imperial Admiral that appeared recently that, according to historical records, VANISHED 800 years ago. It's Admiral Spire, one of the heroes of the Gothic War.
[20:35] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ His ship, the "Righteous Purity" was lost in the Warp 800 years ago.
[20:36] <Solarchos> It's not unknown for ships to seemingly disappear in the Warp only to reappear decades or centuries later with their crews believing only weeks or months had passed.
[20:37] <Solarchos> Time operates very differently inside the Warp. If his ship was caught in a Warp-storm or something similar, it would have been very easy for him and his crew to travel forward in time like that.
[20:37] <Solarchos> But this Necron does concern me.
[20:39] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Trazyn the Infinite actively assisted the Imperium during the Fall of Cadia. Now he's apparently appearing and disappearing at will, assisting the Imperials against the Necrons of a rival Dynasty that's begun awakening in the Sentinel Worlds sub-sector.
[20:41] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Trazyn the Infinite also contacted us briefly during the conflict at Cadia. I must advise you to consider our communication security protocols may be inadequate in regards to him. Given the ease in which he/it seems to contact the Imperials, he/it might just as easily crack and intercept our own quantum entanglement signals.
[20:42] <Solarchos> Understood. Where are you all now?
[20:44] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Arias Maior. The Fleet has engaged and defeated a pirate group here in the system, and the 4th Regiment is currently deployed and wiping out the remaining pirates crewing the shipyard facility. Admiral Satler has decided that the Fleet can make use of that shipyard for repairs and resupply for the duration of our mission.
[20:46] <Solarchos> Be careful with that. Pirate renegades, especially Reavers, can get especially brutal.
[20:48] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ Our ships sustained damage during the battle, but nothing extensive. After we complete repairs, we will attempt to explore and obtain updated information on the nearest sub-sectors...identified as the Nemesis Tessera and Caliban sub-sectors.
[20:48] <Solarchos> CALIBAN?!
[20:48] <Solarchos> ...
[20:50] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ...I am aware of the significance that sub-sector has to you, Governor-sama.
[20:51] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ We will investigate with care and respect for your lost homeworld...and even more caution in regard to the Dark Angels.
[20:54] * Aika-AI (QEC) starts to fade out.
[20:54] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ The signal is losing integrity, sir. Any last orders?
[20:55] <Solarchos> Do you think the Fleet can obtain any samples of the ore mined from Qualoth Deep?
[20:56] <Aika-AI (QEC)> ♦ It may be possible. I will make it a personal objective, Governor-sama.
[20:56] * Aika-AI (QEC) fades out.
[20:56] <Quantum Entanglement Comm> ♦ Signal lost at source. Unable to reconnect.
[20:57] * Solarchos sighs and begins turning off all of the security precautions he'd set up.
[21:00] * Solarchos is away
[20:00] *** ? flips a coin into the air and catches it, tails side up
[20:04] *** Meanwhile, at the large tree in the middle of the city, the Neo Senshi continue their vigilence in protecting said tree.
[20:05] *** Neo Sailor Quinox has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:05] <+luna_P> Evening, Neo Sailor Quinox
[20:05] <+luna_P> Welcome to Suburban Senshi: It's be fortified with 100% Vitamin insane
[20:05] * Neo Sailor Quinox is waiting quietly
[20:08] * Sailor Nereid and Sailor Nix bring some food and drinks for those guarding the area.
[20:11] *** All is quiet for a while, when in the distance a large group of warbots make their way towards the tree. Trouble has come to town once again.
[20:13] <Sailor Nereid> ...no wonder Vyle was quiet the past two months. He's bringing a lot of trouble with him.
[20:16] * Neo Sailor Uranus is sitting on the edge of a building, slupping cheap Ramen "Really?. He's really dumb enough to try this?"
[20:17] * Sailor Nix weighs their options. They could attempt a long-range shelling to reduce the warbot numbers. "He's not going to give up until either side is dead."
[20:18] *** The group of warbots appear to be a mix of light and heavy infantry as they get closer. Some have shields for added protection. Suddenly, the warbots open fire at the Neo Senshi with their guns and cannons.
[20:19] * Neo Sailor Uranus creates a sheild.
[20:20] <Sailor Nix> OK, that cast the die. Light those scrapheaps up!
[20:21] * Neo Sailor Uranus creates a false Space sword "False Sword, Blaster!"
[20:22] * Sailor Nix commands the darkest areas nearest the long-range warbots to come alive and tear them to scrap! Meanwhile, Sailor Nereid puts her energy channeling abilities to work. Time for a powerup!
[20:29] *** The warbots continue to press the attack as they make their way towards the tree. It's very doubtful they're gonna give up so easily as their numbers slowly fall.
[20:29] <Neo Sailor Quinox> gah!
[20:29] * Neo Sailor Quinox is lifted off her feet by Sailor Venti
[20:35] <Neo Sailor Quinox> oh thanks, venti!
[20:39] * Sailor Nereid keeps a vigilant eye out. Anything of note going on around the area, other than the mass of warbots?
[20:43] *** You don't see anything, Nereid. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to the Senshi, a large robotic bee/hornet is flying towards the tree in a different direction.
[20:43] * Neo Sailor Uranus dashes along rooftops, heading for the bots.
[20:46] * Neo Sailor Quinox , Venti and Salacia follow
[20:49] *** The group of warbot infantry continue their attack on the Neo Senshi
[20:50] * Sailor Nix is now known as Super Sailor Nix
[20:50] * Neo Sailor Uranus throws various weapons at the bots
[20:51] * Super Sailor Nix [Battle 1] shifts into her stronger form as she unleashes even stronger attacks on the warbots. Her "Shade Army" forms thousands of shadowy clones of herself, ready and willing to fight. Though nowhere near as durable, they're plenty quick, able to dissipate and reform to hit their weakspots!
[20:51] *** Super Sailor Nix has moved back to the Atrium
[20:53] * Vyle suddenly drops from the robo-bee along with three warbots armed with pickaxes once the transport is near the tree
[20:56] * Sailor Nereid goes for another look around the area.
[20:58] *** The large group of warbot grunts have lost a quart of their numbers. As the attack goes on, Vyle and his three bots land at the base of the tree opposite to the Neo Senshi, and begin to start cutting into the tree. Furthermore, a large driller reminescent to the Ninja Turtles of old pops out of the ground behind the Neo Senshi, and a large warbot steps out.
[21:00] <Neo Sailor Quinox> o_o
[21:00] <Warbot> HAHAHAHA! We got you now, Senshi! Time for you fleshbags to be ripped apart!
[21:01] <Super Sailor Nix> ...wow, someone's compensating.
[21:03] * Sailor Nereid makes another set of rounds in the area. She's double and triple-checking to ensure nothing snuck up on them.
[21:03] <Warbot> I am the Jurassic Inferno, Burn Dinorex! I'm gonna rip, tear, and burn you!
[21:04] * Warbot is now known as Burn Dinorex
[21:04] * Saillor Halley drops down to Vile. "Hi~. Did you really think we were only guarding it from one side?"
[21:06] <Vyle> (to Halley) Hmph. The majority of you brats are already focused elsewhere. It's just you and me.
[21:07] *** Nereid, you find Vyle along with three warbots with pickaxes. Sailor Halley is already on the scene.
[21:08] * Sailor Nereid drops down next to Halley. "Sounds like you're not much of a math major, Vyle."
[21:12] <Vyle> It won't matter. Soon, you little brats will no longer be a concern. You'll be watching the destruction of what's left of the Moon Kingdom from the afterlife!
[21:15] <@spiritflame> The current battle order is: Vyle, Nix, Quinox, Halley, Dinorex, Uranus, Nereid

[22:29] *** A driller vehicle pops up near the pickaxe warbots, and they begin to embark as they carry bags with them.
[22:30] <Sailor Nereid> Oh hell no!
[22:30] * Sailor Halley heats up everyone's powers.
[22:31] * Sailor Nereid turns what remaining power she has towards killing those bots. Super Nix, being mostly fresh, summons another Shade Army to intercept and kill the bots.
[22:31] * Neo Sailor Uranus throws spears at the warbots. They're motlen hot due to halley's upgrade.
[22:32] * Vyle leaps towards the driller, and embarks as two of the warbots go down while the last one manages to escape
[22:33] <Neo Sailor Quinox> !
[22:34] * Super Sailor Nix lashes out with shadowy tendrils to damage the driller machine and slow it down. Meanwhile Nereid fires at the driller's door!
[22:34] <Vyle> GAHAHAHAH! You brats are too late! I've got what I've come here for, and now the Moon Kingdom will be destroyed!
[22:34] * Vyle fires his cannon at the tendrils and escapes
[22:35] *** Vyle [Unknown data.....corruption error] has left #suburbansenshi3 (Mine! All mine!)
[22:35] * Sailor Halley superheats Vyle's ship
[22:36] *** Even though the driller gets heated up, it drops below ground, and returns home with its cargo.
[22:37] * Sailor Nereid straightens up as best she can, and pulls out her communicator. She sends a message out.
[22:39] * Neo Sailor Uranus makes sure to also send out word, making sure as many people in the hotel know as possible
[22:39] <Neo Sailor Uranus> This fight may have become bigger then us.
[22:40] <Sailor Nereid> Not quite. Vyle likely doesn't know the weakness of those shards.
[22:41] <Super Sailor Nix> Their strength is only proportionate to their size. Bigger ones are stronger, but they need an equal amount of power. Too big a shard and he would end up killing himself.
[22:42] <Neo Sailor Uranus> Yeah. But Usagi's stone was tiny.
[22:43] <Neo Sailor Uranus> And we all know what she could do with it
[22:44] <Sailor Nereid> If memory serves, Usagi is a member of the family that was more or less attuned to using it, hence her ability to do so. Vyle has no such connection.
[22:45] <Sailor Nereid> We exploit that lack of a connection, and force him to burn himself out.
[22:47] * Neo Sailor Uranus crosses his arms "This is quite a risky plan, but it's all we have I guess"
[22:49] * Super Sailor Nix heads over to collect the bags that the killed warbots dropped. "Either way, we find him, we end him. Some shards should be able to counteract the ones he got away with, thus taking them off the table."
[22:51] * Neo Sailor Quinox and her senshi regroup
[22:52] * Sailor Nereid uses her powers to help patch everyone up.
[22:58] * Sailor Nereid and Nix also help spread the word. Endgame may be approaching soon, and it's time to plan.
[23:01] <Super Sailor Nix> Dunno about anyone else, but I'm feeling a bit hungry after that.
[23:05] * Super Sailor Nix is now known as Sailor Nix
[23:09] <Sailor Nix> ...it is a bit late, but I know a place nearby that Nereid and I tend to frequent whenever Charm Coffee's not open. Anyone interested?
[23:10] * Neo Sailor Uranus is now known as Andy Dioli
[23:10] <Andy Dioli> I'd come but I'm kinda broke. I'm down to cup noodles level income
[23:11] * Sailor Halley is now known as FreezerBurn
[23:11] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: FreezerBurn is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[23:11] <FreezerBurn> Ugh. Andy you really need to get that taken care of.
[23:12] * Sailor Nix is now known as Camilla
[23:12] * Sailor Nereid is now known as Hinako Urashima
[23:12] <Hinako Urashima> Bad luck holding down any steady income?
[23:13] <FreezerBurn> He's actully like super rich, but all his money is tied up in legal limbo
[23:13] * Mirai Arashi and the other two girls are asleep under the tree
[23:14] <Camilla> Great, the one thing worse than Vyle and his junkheaps...
[23:16] <FreezerBurn> I'll pay today.
[23:17] <Andy Dioli> Where do you even get money? You can't even remember your legal identiy.
[23:17] <FreezerBurn> Secret~
[23:17] * Camilla has an idea as to where, but keeps it to herself. "Hina and I can chip in as well."
[23:18] <FreezerBurn> Lead the way then
[23:20] *** Camilla [EyesTowardsMe@International.fh] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("It's over this way. Don't let the owner's appearance fool you --- they're a giant teddy bear under that exterior.")
[23:20] *** FreezerBurn has left #suburbansenshi3 (Huh?)
[23:20] *** AndyDioli has left #suburbansenshi3 (Oh boy...)
[23:20] *** Hinako Urashima [WorldRunner@WellspringofTravels.net] has left #suburbansenshi3 (*she double-checks to ensure Neo Quinox's group is comfortable before catching up with everyone* "You'll see when we get there.")
[20:15] <Sean Collins> (( test ))
[21:57] *** Nothern Japan
[21:58] * Omn Strata Zo stumbles...his armor smoking from the attacks he has endured
[21:58] <Omn Strata Zo> erg.......if I can't win...then YOU ALL WILL LOSE!
[21:59] * Omn Strata Zo starts to glow as it tries to rip open it's armor....some sort of powre building up from it

[22:02] <Omn Strata Zo> DIE!!!!
[22:02] * Omn Strata Zo RIPS open his armor..causing a huge blast of energy strike..at the same time Arashi swings her sword...the two powers colliding..........before arashi's vortex overpowers...and consumes it

[22:04] * Omn Strata Zo screams as he explodes....leaving behind the diary he was trying to steal
[22:04] * Kamen Rider Arashi (Tornado) powers down....
[22:06] * Kamen Rider Arashi (Tornado) is now known as Saori Shin
[22:06] * Saori Shin walks over and picks up the journel and sighs, quickly turning the pages...
[22:07] *** unknown to her....near an outcropping...a figure slowly lifts a gun..and aims towards Saori........
[22:07] *** ..A Kamen Rider...
[22:07] *** the Rider carefully aims...and then pulls the trigger
[22:07] *** END OF EPISODE 13
[10:42] *** Peinforte Manor
[10:42] * @ is going through some old picture-books and items that Exeter had not gotten rid of
[10:42] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ^
[10:42] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte frowns and closes them
[10:43] * Exeter L. Wakefield comes in, sees the look on her face and frowns, hugging her from behind
[10:43] <Exeter L. Wakefield> what is it?
[10:43] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I'm a horrible person.
[10:44] <Exeter L. Wakefield> No you're not. At least outside of the context of your harmless snarky horribleness.
[10:44] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I wanted to burn these.
[10:44] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Eh?
[10:44] * Exeter L. Wakefield looks at the pictures and can guess why
[10:45] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...that was a very very long time ago
[10:45] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Literally lifetimes ago.
[10:46] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I know that.
[10:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But wandering about your rooms I still see remnants of those times with prie of place and I just... I feel like I'm in competition with ghosts.
[10:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...and I wish I could just get rid of it all.
[10:47] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Which is selfish and horrible
[10:47] <Exeter L. Wakefield> And entirely human :P
[10:48] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...yuo don't understand
[10:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Until I finally gave in and confessed to you... I had never shared my feelings with anyone.
[10:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I had lived my life on the premise that certain feelings and experiences were soley for ohter people and would never be mine.
[10:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> And then when I finally did get them....
[10:50] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...you find yourself becming possessiveand jealous and scared and hate that about yourself.
[10:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ....
[10:50] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte crosses her arms over her chest
[10:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Looo, I know you and I are connected on the most fundamental lelvel but I dodn't appreciate you pillaging my thoughts for insight.
[10:51] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...You should know I wasn't.
[10:51] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte frowns, it was true
[10:51] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But... if you weren't
[10:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes, you're not the only one.
[10:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I've felt that way before.
[10:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> And it stinks.
[10:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> But again, it's the price you pay.
[10:52] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You get something you really want, naturally you're going to be afraid of losing it.
[10:53] <Exeter L. Wakefield> That's why the Jedi and various Monk-sects discourage attachment.
[10:54] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well I mean
[10:55] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I spent years just burying 99% of my emotions and then I let loose and then I find out I'm jealous and paranoid? I don't like that.
[10:56] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Lest you forget my family history... Peinforte women have not historically been good people.
[10:56] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Rubbish
[10:56] <Exeter L. Wakefield> you're not the first"good" Lady Peinforte and we know fora fact youweon't be the last.
[10:57] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Your family just had a horrible generational curse on it.
[10:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> No.
[10:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Averil Peinforte kicked the whole thing off willingly making a deal with the devil.
[10:57] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Fiona Peinforte knew exactly what she wanted and how to get it, morlas be damned
[10:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...
[10:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You don't understand Ex
[10:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> There hae been times I've seen you, or my friends in pain and in trouble
[10:58] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> and I have ciontemplated things.
[10:59] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I know all about poisons. I can burn you up from the inside with a snap of my fingers and I can drive you mad with a thought.
[11:00] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes but you haven't dome those things.
[11:00] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> but sometimes I want to
[11:00] * Exeter L. Wakefield hugs her tighter
[11:00] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Yes, but the fact that you don't speaks volumes
[11:01] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm afraid don't you understand.
[11:01] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> The very fact that we're together is a bit of flexibility when it comes to my moral compass.
[11:02] <Exeter L. Wakefield> It's not a situation that is unique in all of history.
[11:02] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But that aside (yeah I don't relly care)
[11:04] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ..I always feel like I'm one step away from the dark
[11:04] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I harbour such vvengefukl thoughts sometimes.
[11:05] * Exeter L. Wakefield just holds her close
[11:05] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Again, that's the struggle of any sentient being
[11:06] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well not every sentient being has Old Ones creeping on their bloodline.... *shudder* or possibly in their bloodline.
[11:06] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte rmemebers almost losing Arisa to The Destroyer
[11:06] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte remembers her own battles with Hastur
[11:07] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Do you want me to put these things away?
[11:08] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte frowns
[11:08] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'd be lying if I said no but... the right answer is no
[11:08] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte looks around her manor
[11:08] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> This house hasstood here since the 900s
[11:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> It is filled with memories, mementos and relics from the Peinfortes since all that time. Memories good and bad.
[11:09] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You, Old Man, are very much like this house. You're an edifice against history.
[11:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> You tried to throw it all away and discovered it's not that easy or good for you.
[11:10] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We... like as not, need the surroundings of our history to keep us grounded, remind us fo where were were, so we know where we are and how far we've come
[11:11] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm just unreasonably jealous because I see these happy times... which I wasn't a part of
[11:11] <Exeter L. Wakefield> But we make our own happy times every day.
[11:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Yes but I'm a peusdo-gothy hermit who doesn't wear her happiness on her sleeve or photographically.
[11:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> There's barely any record of us here.
[11:12] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Not my fault :P
[11:12] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte STOMPS on his foot
[11:12] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ARRRHGGH
[11:12] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte hugs tighter
[11:12] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I know.
[11:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I'm a mass of contradictions
[11:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I want certain things and yet I don't.
[11:13] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I don't want to be the in-your-face lovely dovey couples I've seen around the HOTEL
[11:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I don't like people knowingmy business
[11:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> But at the same time...
[11:14] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You kind of do?
[11:14] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Well to a point
[11:15] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I kind of don't like that I force you to stay at home here.
[11:16] <Exeter L. Wakefield> You forget that there's reasons I don't go back there.
[11:18] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Sometimes I want to say hang it all and let the chips fall where they might
[11:20] <Exeter L. Wakefield> ...
[11:21] <Exeter L. Wakefield> I do not even want to know where that would end up
[11:21] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte pulls out of the hug
[11:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> A truama for the future! :D
[11:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Speaking of, today's the day of the cursed cooking contest
[11:21] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> We're all probably going to die.
[11:22] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Fun times~
[11:26] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Indeed.
[11:27] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> Let's go have lunch, love.

[19:57] <Eilean> I don't even know what half these things do
[19:57] <Ultimate Chef "Michiru"> I think you use that [blender] to boil water.
[19:58] <@Eitak_Razal> Nivek did slip me a few recipies. If we can follow them to the letter we might have a chance
[19:58] <@Eitak_Razal> ...That's a blender.
[19:58] <Ultimate Chef "Michiru"> Yes. And the faster the water gets the hotter it gets.
[19:58] <@Eitak_Razal> ...Ok even I know that isn't how it works. It's for like cutting up veggies or fruit into tiny fragments.
[19:59] <Ultimate Chef "Michiru"> That's what a mortar and pestle are for.
[19:59] * Eilean presses the button of one thing which suddenly activates a laser

[22:45] <Ultimate Chef "Michiru"> For my dish, I have constructed a metaphor for fragile humanity, with this head scuply of an idiot made of meat, filled with a slurry of spam and sea cucumbers interwoven to evoke the image of a head filledf with a confusion of garbage and offal, which are delicious thoughts to the fool. Around him are four bowls, one for each judge, made of spam and shaped like life-giving mother birds, with sea-cucumber meals in their beaks being offered unto you, the dear judges. Around them towers of spam covered in jellied sea-cucumber and bacon to cleanse the palate and prepare one for the ring of sea-cucumbers around the communal plate.Finally,a leaning tower of flaming spam awaits to thrill the tongue.

[18:59] <Chibi-Catri> How long before the others show up? We've been here for almost an hour.
[19:00] <Chibi-Alex> Just be patient. Remember, we had to take different routes.
[19:11] <Chibi-Alex> We'll just wait here until they start showing up.
[19:17] * GR pops up, a random shrubbery atop their head. "Peek-a-boo♫"
[19:18] * Chibi-Alex continues to survey the dank and dreary region ahead of them.
[19:18] <Chibi-Alex> O__o
[19:18] <Chibi-Catri> ...That's some impressive camouflage.
[19:21] * GR reaches up and tosses the shrubbery aside. "Sad part is this wasn't my first choice. I was going to use a tree, but it had a bad case of rot."
[19:22] *** In preparation for the mission into Pripyat, AnTil has sent out various groups to scout for information and/or additional supplies and funding. Tonight's event will focus on one such mission. You can select from the following...
[19:24] *** 1. The Loners in the Zaton sector are dealing with major problems with a Bloodsucker lair that needs to be eliminated.
[19:25] *** 2. Something called a Chimera has been sighted near Yanov Station. Eliminating it would certainly make things a lot safer.
[19:25] *** 3. The Red Forest is still extremely dangerous and some Moon-Rabbit patrols have not reported back.
[19:27] *** 4. Monolith forces are moving further into the deserted town of Limansk. If they succeed in taking back the town, they'll cut off the Moon-Rabbit's supply lines that run through the Red Forest.
[19:29] *** WHICH MISSION ARE YOU A BAD ENOUGH DUDE FOR?!??!?!?!
[19:29] <GR>“ (Hm, that is one impressive list.)”
[19:31] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm. That's what we have so foar?
[19:32] <Megan O`Cain> ^far
[19:33] <Chibi-Catri> Yup.
[19:33] <Megan O`Cain> What do you guys think? I was thinking we put some hurt on Monolith.
[19:33] <Chibi-Alex> You two will be going in while Catriona and I provide long-range support and overwatch.
[19:33] <Megan O`Cain> And yes, Dean's been keeping that video going every half hour on those jackwagons.
[19:34] <Chibi-Alex> =^ ^=
[19:35] <GR>“ Given that the Moon Rabbits' supply lines run through the Red Forest, I'd imagine that liberating Limansk would help in understanding the Red Forest a touch better. That, and maybe finding where those patrols disappeared to. It's be a "two birds, one bullet" scenario.....”
[19:35] <GR>“ At the same time, helping the other forces would help generate some extra goodwill....”
[19:36] *** Keep in mind that only one mission could be selected, and you're already on site for it to commence.
[19:39] <Megan O`Cain> Well, my vote is hitting Monolith to further piss off the top b[BLEEP]ch some more. If we can stop their advance in Limansk, it'll give our side that much better of a foothold.
[19:43] <GR>“ Piss off Morimoto and secure supply lines.... won't lie, extremely tempting.”
[19:44] *** The Limansk mission then?
[19:47] * Megan O`Cain nods
[19:49] *** The four of you have traveled through a long vehicular tunnel that leads back to the makeshift bridge and irradiated river bordering the Red Forrest (which is currently controlled by the Moon-Rabbits). Leaving the tunnel, you find yourself inside a fairly large village of Eastern European construction.
[19:51] *** The road ahead of you is somewhat narrow, bordered on both side by two and three-story stone buildings. There are a few abandoned and rusting vehicles partially blocking the road in some places, many overgrown plants, and the whole place has a dank, dreary, and deteriorated appearance.
[19:52] <spiritflame> Chibi-Alex rolls 2D12d [ ]
[19:52] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[19:52] <spiritflame> Chibi-Alex rolls 4D6d [ ]
[19:52] <spiritflame> Chibi-Alex rolls 4d6 [ 2, 1, 5, 5 ]
[19:53] <GR>“ (Though what purpose other than the supply lines would be served for Morimoto's forces to occupy this place?)”
[19:54] *** It's early afternoon, and the sky overhead is a dark gunmetal grey from the thick clouds that threaten rain. Fortunately, there was already an Emission early this morning, so none are expected for another day or so.
[19:55] *** In the distance you can hear sporadic gunfire, as well as the distinctive sounds of a helicopter further away.
[19:55] <Chibi-Alex> Okay, we'd better get moving!
[19:56] * Chibi-Catri picks up a large rectangular case that looks pretty heavy!
[19:57] <Megan O`Cain> Right with you two.
[20:01] * Chibi-Catri and Chibi-Alex both advance at a trot through the area ahead...which is a small plaza ringed by small dwellings that would have looked "quaint" in the Pre-Zone days. Now they just look forlorn and sad. This USED to be a place where people lived. Now it's only really populated by ghosts.
[20:02] * Megan O`Cain advances as best she can with the terrain
[20:02] *** Advance with the Kits or take a quick look around of the area. There's a small bus-stop bench nearby, and some partially filled rubbish bins scattered around.
[20:03] <spiritflame> Chibi-Catri rolls 1d10 [ 6 ]
[20:04] * Megan O`Cain takes a look as she moves about to get a better sense of the area
[20:04] *** Geiger counters show no anomalous radiation readings or nasty surprises in this area.
[20:04] *** Megan, please roll 1d20
[20:06] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d20 [ 6 ]
[20:08] * GR advances with the Langisters, eyes open for whatever other details may be apparant.
[20:08] *** Megan, you find a rusty bucket tucked in behind the bench that's been used as a toilet many times recently. OH THE AROMA~!!!
[20:09] <Megan O`Cain> (Yuck!)
[20:10] *** GR, please roll 1d20 as well.
[20:11] * Megan O`Cain keeps looking as she advances
[20:11] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d20 [ 9 ]
[20:14] *** INCOMING DOG PACK!!!
[20:14] *** Several wizened and misshapen dogs are bounding towards everyone, jaws agape!
[20:16] <GR>“ Feral Mutt alerts!”
[20:18] <Chibi-Catri> Crap!
[20:18] <Chibi-Alex> >:[
[20:19] * Chibi-Alex drops to a knee firing her las-carbine while Chibi-Catri dashes to the side of the nearest building.
[20:19] <Megan O`Cain> The hell?!
[20:20] * Megan O`Cain gets out a suppressed Vector SMG, and fires at the pack of dogs coming at the group
[20:20] * GR wastes little time, and goes on offense. They pull their bow, but the arrows have been changed this time.... they fire one at the pack.
[20:24] * The dog pack closes in to striking distance!!
[20:24] <spiritflame> The dog pack rolls 1d3 [ 1 ]
[20:25] *** One dog is peppered with shots from Megan's SMG and flops over twitching and convulsing after a dozen or so shots.
[20:25] <GR> me's arrow is a one-two punch..... first, a strong icy-cold burst to stop them in their tracks, followed up by a nice big KA-BOOM!
[20:25] * GR ^
[20:26] <spiritflame> The dog pack rolls 1d6 [ 5 ]
[20:26] * The dog pack is DECIMATED!! Most of the dogs are flung in all directly like broken, limp rag dolls. Only ONE dog remains alive!
[20:28] <spiritflame> The dog rolls 1d4 [ 2 ]
[20:29] * The dog dashes up a short flight of steps and CHOMPS at little Catriona!!!
[20:29] * Chibi-Catri manages to hit the ground as the dog leaps over her and evades it.
[20:30] *** The dog is extremely weird looking. It's larger than most and entirely black in color. Geiger counters are squealing like crazy near it!
[20:32] * Megan O`Cain continues to lay down fire from her Vector SMG at the pack of weirdo dogs
[20:35] *** Roll 1d20 please!
[20:35] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d20 [ 7 ]
[20:38] *** The Black Hound CHOMPS you Megan, before it gets PWNED by concentrated fire from everyone.
[20:40] <Megan O`Cain> B[BLEEP]ch!
[20:41] * GR heads over to check on Megan. Where'd she get bitten at?
[20:44] <Chibi-Catri> Is everyone all right?
[20:44] <Chibi-Alex> Did anyone get bitten?!
[20:45] * Megan O`Cain raises a finger'
[20:48] * Chibi-Alex and Chibi-Catri both quickly rush over!
[20:49] <Chibi-Alex> I think that was a Black Hound!
[20:49] <Megan O`Cain> Stupid little s[BLEEP]t bit on my forearm. I think the armor held.
[20:49] <Chibi-Catri> Did either of you detect a lot of radiation coming from it when it got close?
[20:53] <Megan O`Cain> Why do you ask?
[20:55] <GR>“ Guessing that hound was seriously irradiated.”
[20:55] <Megan O`Cain> S[BLEEP]t.
[20:57] * Chibi-Catri checks Megan with a Geiger counter. Please roll 1d100, Megan.
[20:58] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 13 ]
[21:03] *** Fortunately, VERY little radiation was transferred into your body, Megan. Current radiation level: 49 mSv.
[21:03] <Megan O`Cain> Geez. F[BLEEP]king s[BLEEP]tbag.
[21:04] *** Which will clear up in about a day on its own. Very quickly if you pause for a little while to drink purified water to flush the radiation out of your system.
[21:06] <Megan O`Cain> Should we keep going?
[21:08] * GR takes a quick look around for anyplace that should serve as a temporary shelter.
[21:10] <Chibi-Catri> If we move quickly, we can reach the Moon-Rabbit outpost here in Limansk in just a few minutes.
[21:10] <Megan O`Cain> Works for me.
[21:11] <GR>“ Sounds good. Lead the way.”
[21:13] * Chibi-Alex indicates on a map (and up ahead) that there's aduplex house that has been converted into a fortified waystation and base near the gatehouse checkpoint that connects directly to the Dead City. The Moon-Rabbits have to hold that position as it's the main starting point of their supply chain from the Dead City, through Limansk and the Red Forest and into the Jupiter Sector and Yanov Station.
[21:13] <Chibi-Alex> Follow us!
[21:14] * Chibi-Catri picks up the big box she's carrying, holds it over her head, and trots along with everyone else. >:3
[21:14] * Megan O`Cain follows after Alex and Catri
[21:16] * GR brings up the rear, eyes and senses on alert for any other potential hazards they may encounter.
[21:17] *** Annnnnnd pause here for tonight. Will tomorrow evening be good for continuing?
[21:17] <Megan O`Cain> (( Yes. ))
[21:18] <GR> (( Sounds good. ))
[21:18] *** Excellent. We will continue then! Good night to all!
[19:04] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:18] *** The party reached the Moon-Rabbit outpost without too much difficulty.
[19:18] * Megan O`Cain looks about to get a sense of the situation
[19:26] *** The building is a duplex residence: one apartment built atop the other, with an entrance door on each level, with the second story reachable by a partially enclosed staircase.
[19:29] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[19:33] * Megan O`Cain is about to step towards the outpost
[19:34] * GR takes a quick look around for any danger. If Monolith forces are trying to occupy the area, then they most likely have to have some sentries in the area.
[19:38] *** The windows have either been boarded up on both sides, inside AND outside, and the ground floor windows have also been further fortified by metal plates and barrels placed outside and filled with rubble.
[19:41] *** Inside, the floor is made of worn and dirty wooden planks, and almost all of the furniture is gone. The inside consists mostly of small, narrow rooms (typical of European designs) and makeshift furniture to make the place a little more habitable. There IS electricity though, as demonstrated by a single outside light being lit. Almost all of the internal light fixtures are gone though. The Moon-Rabbits are using portable camp lights.
[19:41] <GR>“ (Hm...)”
[19:42] * Megan O`Cain carefully makes her way through
[19:43] *** What is noteworthy is that in one of the back rooms the ceiling has been torn open in one place and a rough ramp built that leads up to the second floor. The balcony overlooking the street outside has been fortified with steel sheets, and a few Moon-Rabbits are crouched behind them, aiming rifles and a single belt-fed light machine gun northwards up the street.
[19:44] *** In one of the back rooms on the second floor are a bunch of sleeping bags and bare metal frames assembled to form crude bunk beds. There's also a makeshift kitchen downstairs, and a bunch of storage crates and shelves assembled upstairs to create a small supply depot.
[19:45] * Random Moon-Rabbit aims at you all, looking you all over through the scope of her rifle, which appears to be a battered, but serviceable M-16A2.
[19:46] * Megan O`Cain stops in her tracks as she sees the glint from the scope
[19:48] <Random Moon-Rabbit> HEY!! Come on in! Don't stand there!
[19:49] * Megan O`Cain sighs in relief and heads towards the Moon-Rabbits
[19:54] *** Right next to the outpost building, to the west, is a larger brick building. Running through it is a short tunnel, secured by a sturdy metal gate. This is the route to the Dead City, which is the main home of the Mercenary Faction, and the source of the steady trickle of supplies that the Moon-Rabbits have access to.
[19:54] * GR is taking a quick look around the area. They're running a few ideas through their head....
[19:54] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[19:56] *** Further north the road is partially blocked in places by barricades, and you can even see an intersection that's been fortified by a sandbag wall and an abandoned bus being used as an obstacle. The whole town has clearly seen quite a bit of urban combat.
[19:56] * Chibi-Alex and Chibi-Catri lead everyone inside.
[19:57] <GR>“ (Idea...)”
[19:59] * GR heads over with everyone else. "What's the situation looking like around here?"
[20:01] * Moon-Rabbit Girl waves everyone inside, ushering you all into the main ground floor room, which probably once served as a combination dining room and living room.
[20:02] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> So far we're holding onto our foothold here. Limansk has been a hotbed of Monolith and mutant activity for a long time though.
[20:03] <Megan O`Cain> How long exactly do you know?
[20:05] *** The main room is actually divided into TWO rooms by a wall with an opening in the middle that's large enough to hold double-doors, but clearly never had them installed. Beyond that is the kitchen. The first room serves as an ammo dump and troop area (with the bathroom right next door). The other room serves as a rest area, with a table set up...that is really just a door held up by a couple of sawbucks.
[20:06] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> At least going back several years. It wasn't until the faction known as Clear Sky successfully launched a large-scale invasion through here about a year ago that broke Monolith's hold on Limansk.
[20:08] <Megan O`Cain> Alright, then.
[20:10] * Moon-Rabbit Girl shows you all a map of Limansk. It's a little old, but the Moon-Rabbits have been working to update it. Some areas have been blocked off by circles drawn in orange or grey magic marker, and most of the northern part of the town has lots and lots of post-it notes covering it.
[20:11] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> Right now we've got a couple of scouting parties out and searching. We haven't heard back from them in a while now, so I'm getting worried.
[20:13] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> But their last radio transmission suggested that Monolith forces were gathering here (indicates an area a short distance north that looks like a park next to an abandoned school, and just south of a big orange circle.
[20:14] *** Another Moon-Rabbit comes out of the kitchen, bringing a plate stacked with sandwiches (salami on rye) and a pot of hot and VERY black coffee.
[20:14] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm. And you suspect those forces are still there?
[20:15] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> Without a doubt.
[20:15] <Megan O`Cain> How long ago was the transmission?
[20:16] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> That circle marked there is the "Last Step" Anomaly. That blocks the entire street going north past that point, and the buildings around it form a bottleneck that Monolith always tries to keep a firm hold of.
[20:16] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> The transmission was about an hour ago.
[20:17] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[20:17] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> That area near that school has seen a big upswing of Monolith patrols starting about a week ago. They're getting more persistent and aggressive.
[20:18] <Megan O`Cain> Well, any chance of giving these a[BLEEP]les the boot?
[20:19] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> They're also bringing more advanced equipment forward. Their upper-tier soldiers are becoming much more common.
[20:19] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> If we had enough people to launch a sustained assault, we could.
[20:21] * Moon-Rabbit Girl shows on the map that Limansk is bisected in the middle by a small river spanned by a single bridge. The other bridge has been marked as destroyed, and the river itself is marked over and over with Rad signs and skulls.
[20:22] *** On the other side of the river is an area of more densely-packed residences.
[20:22] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> North of that river it's ALL owned by Monolith. That whole northern half of town is basically a fortress.
[20:24] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> But that river is a natural barrier. It's lethally radioactive. Falling into it will expose you to hundreds of rads of radiation per minute. We have NO IDEA what's making it so radioactive, so we think it must be running through an Anomaly further upstream.
[20:24] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[20:25] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> That one bridge is the only way across. If THAT can be taken from Monolith and held against them, it'll at least keep this side of Limansk safe from them
[20:26] <Megan O`Cain> Gotcha.
[20:26] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> There's a THIRD bridge leading across, but that's inaccessible because of the "Void-hole" Anomalies. There are a bunch of those here.
[20:27] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> I've seen those. They're freaky.
[20:28] *** Meanwhile, Chibi-Alex is patching up the damage to Megan's armor and eating THREE sandwiches. :3
[20:28] * Megan O`Cain opens up a vid-window, and has Dean make a copy of the map as she weighs her options to formulate the best plan of action.
[20:29] * Chibi-Catri has opened that case she was carrying and is assembling...HOLY CRAP!!!
[20:29] * Chibi-Catri has a Barret 50-caliber anti-materiel rifle! It's one of the shortened bullpup designs too!
[20:29] <Chibi-Catri> >:D
[20:30] <Chibi-Catri> - Kits love cannons!!!! -
[20:30] <Megan O`Cain> Heh. So that's what you were hauling. The ol' 50 cal.
[20:31] <Chibi-Catri> ^________^
[20:32] * Chibi-Catri goes upstairs with it and gets it set up on the balcony, fixing its bipod to the railing.
[20:32] <Chibi-Alex> So what are you two thinking?
[20:34] <Megan O`Cain> I was thinking either riding my summoned horse across the bridge, and lay waste to the Monolith s[BLEEP]theads on the other side, or go invisible and lay waste.
[20:38] * Megan O`Cain turns to GR, "Any thoughts?"
[20:42] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> Here's another thing.
[20:43] <Megan O`Cain> Hm?
[20:43] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> Monolith hasn't tried all that hard to push us back. Not yet at least. They seem more interested in trying to secure the area near that school. It's almost like they're searching for something.
[20:44] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> We've managed to keep them at bay for the most part, but the more we drive them back, the more determined they are when they return.
[20:44] <GR>“ Something hiding in the school, eh? Probably either an artifact or something else they want. ”
[20:45] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> We've defeated three squad-sized patrols in the last 24 hours, and the last one had a few Ratnik-equipped soldiers in it.
[20:46] <Megan O`Cain> Ratnik?
[20:47] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> The Ratnik is the name for a combat exoskeleton that the Neo-Soviet Army has begun producing. Early versions of it have been showing up inside the Zone for a while now.
[20:48] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[20:48] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> If Monolith soldiers in combat exoskeletons are showing up, that means a lot of resources are getting spent by them.
[20:48] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> They want that plaza. Here's the thing...
[20:48] <GR>“ Wonder what those suits are made of...”
[20:51] * Moon-Rabbit Girl points to a few points on the map near where that school is. "Our line of sight to that plaza is partially blocked by some of the buildings, meaning we can't provide full sniper coverage. However, we know that there are a few buildings across from the school that COULD be fortified and used as a bastion to help hold that whole area."
[20:51] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> We've only got ONE combat-ready squad available.
[20:52] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> We'll need your help to lead them into position. We can either deploy them at the plaza and secure it against Monolith, enabling us to properly explore the area for whatever it is they're looking for.
[20:53] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> And what few radio intercepts we've gotten indicate that they ARE looking for something too.
[20:53] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[20:54] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> OR...deploy them at the bridge and drive Monolith back, but we won't be able to investigate the plaza at all. Not right now, at least.
[20:56] * Megan O`Cain closes her eyes as she thinks
[20:56] <Chibi-Alex> We can't really decide for you because AnTil gave Catriona and I specific orders to stay here and provide support.
[20:58] <Megan O`Cain> Having a bastion would be helpful. In either case, though, we'll be knocking down their numbers.
[20:59] <GR>“ Hmm.... if they're searching the area for something particular, denying it to them would give Leona a few early grey hairs. Much as driving them back would work quite well, there's no telling if they'd try to send in a smaller force to sneak around whilst we're occupied with the front lines.”
[21:02] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> So occupy and hold the plaza?
[21:05] <Megan O`Cain> Plaza bastion it is.
[21:05] <GR>“ Right now it sounds like the better option. We get our forces nicely entrenched, that'll give us a safety net with which to check out the area for that item.”
[21:11] <Megan O`Cain> When do we set out?
[21:15] <Moon-Rabbit Girl> Grab whatever ammunition you need and you can set out soon.
[21:16] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR NOW SINCE I NEED TO DEPART FOR THE NIGHT.
[21:16] <Megan O`Cain> (( Alrighty. ))
[21:17] *** Will tomorrow evening work well for you both to conclude the event?
[21:17] <GR> (( But of course. Time for some slaughter♡ ))
[21:17] <Megan O`Cain> (( Works for me so far. ))
[21:21] *** Excellent. I will see you all tomorrow evening. Get ready for BATTLE!
[19:02] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:08] *** A small group of Moon-Rabbits are preparing themselves for the mission back into Limansk. Their school-like uniforms are now tattered and dirty after the few weeks everyone's been inside the Zone, so modifications have had to be made.
[19:10] *** Some of them have patched up damage using lengths of military-grade textile or even thin Kevlar, sewn into place using high-grade sewing kits.
[19:12] *** Some of their helmets have seen better days too, their once-white paint now smeared with mud, chipped from use, dulled with grime, and dented from combat. All of the Moon-Rabbits carefully put on protective masks too - actual gas masks if they have them, or surgical masks if they don't.
[19:17] * Megan O`Cain makes absolutely sure her armor systems are fully functional
[19:19] * GR has been scoping out the area, marking down any areas of importance. (Ideas intensify.)
[19:19] *** A few of the Moon-Rabbits have actually managed to upgrade themselves with actual, practical Zone attire, such as the ubiquitous Stalker suit. Most of them, however, have had to make do with scavenged gear such as rubberized tarps as ponchos and cut pieces of car tires for elbow and knee pads. All of them look a little sick and out of sorts.
[19:20] * A Moon-Rabbit lets out a very distressed groan in the bathroom at that moment.
[19:23] <Megan O`Cain> (I hope they're ready. This could be rough going.)
[19:25] *** The Moon-Rabbits preparing to take part in the assault are all stocking up on the last of the supplies they need - a little bit of ammunition for their respective weapons, some food, medical supplies, and...cigarettes? And a HALF cigarette for each of them at that.
[19:25] *** GR and Megan, both of you please roll 1d100
[19:26] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 77 ]
[19:26] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d100 'cause the green voice requested it [ 15 ]
[19:27] *** Megan, you notice several minute, but potentially important details.
[19:29] * Megan O`Cain looks over what she's spotted
[19:30] *** The Moon-Rabbits preparing for this assault mission seem rather under-equipped. Their armor looks like it's all in rather worn shape; they're not maintaining it to nearly the same meticulousness you've seen the Kits keep their own suits.
[19:31] <Megan O`Cain> (Hmmm...)
[19:32] *** They're also each only taking two reloads for their weapons. Their medical supplies consist of a single medical kit equivalent to an IFAK and not much else.
[19:33] *** The food smells like...it's all Zone-produced stuff. Roasted rat and dog meat, maybe with some of those bloated mutant pigs (Fleshes) mixed in too. That stuff may be very easy to find, but it's far from healthy.
[19:34] <Megan O`Cain> (Geez. These guys don't look all that fit to fight.)
[19:34] *** In fact, eating nothing BUT "Zone meat" all the time would likely cause all kinds of health problems in addition to the radioactive exposure. Including probably...diarrhea (the "cha-cha" kind too)?
[19:40] *** It looks like the Moon-Rabbits going out on this assault mission are going out poorly supplied. Like they're experiencing major shortages of almost everything.
[19:42] <Moon-Rabbit Leader> Is everything ready?
[19:42] * Megan O`Cain turns to GR as if to say, "We might have trouble with this group."
[19:43] * GR sees Megan's expression, and so walks over. "Something up?"
[19:44] <Megan O`Cain> I think these guys aren't that well equipped for this job.
[19:46] <Megan O`Cain> I mean, their gear is crap, their weapons don't look that maintained, and their food quality is absolute s[BLEEP]t.
[19:47] <GR> Indeed. This operation may be much tougher than anticipated.... perhaps they ought to be reassigned to other duties?
[19:48] * Moon-Rabbit Leader smiles as she comes over.
[19:48] <Megan O`Cain> I would think so, but where?
[19:49] * Chibi-Alex and Chibi-Catri are on the balcony, maintaining overwatch on the street leading northwards.
[19:51] <GR> If there are any able-bodied enough, I'd say have them work long-range sniping efforts. That, or have them booby-trap a few areas around town to give the Monolith forces a nasty surprise.
[19:54] * Megan O`Cain nods
[19:54] <Moon-Rabbit Leader> Squad! Prepare to move out. Follow their orders to the letter and their lead in battle.
[19:59] * Megan O`Cain stands up from her seat, and puts on her helmet
[20:02] * The Moon-Rabbit Team starts to move out, filing outside into the street and taking cover behind a wrecked UAZ jeep, a couple of trees, a gas stove that was dragged outside, and a strange-looking blue colored exterior mailbox meant for all the original residents of this block.
[20:04] * Megan O`Cain heads out of the building, and tactically makes her way towards the plaza
[20:05] * GR makes their own way towards the plaza, using a slightly more roundabout route. On their way there, they decide it's time to put their great-godmother's tactic to use.
[20:06] *** The weather's taken a bit of a turn for the worse. It's now snowing, and the sky has taken on that familiar half-light that's so common throughout the Zone, casting everything into a dim overcast.
[20:08] <GR>“ (Snow... figures. At least it'll help camoflauge the little surprises I have in store.)”
[20:08] * Megan O`Cain uses her helmet's combo of FLIR and UV to see things a little better
[20:11] *** Advancing, you see that the narrow street is bordered on both sides by equally narrow sidewalks, small low terraces holding grass and other foliage, and more of the small apartment houses, with a barricade set up at the middle of the street. JEEZ, the way ahead is almost a fatal funnel!
[20:12] <Megan O`Cain> Hmmm...
[20:16] *** Reaching the barricade, it's a lot safer.
[20:22] *** Ahead, you can see a four way intersection. There's a partially enclosed kiosk nearby at one of the corners, and on the far side of the intersection you can see the sandbags that have been stacked up to block the road. There's also a small staircase on the left leading up the side of yet another apartment building.
[20:22] <GR>“ (That ought to do it. Now then, where might the enemy forces decide to invade from?)”
[20:23] * Megan O`Cain looks over to see what the best course of action is
[20:24] <Chibi-Alex> You're halfway there. The plaza is past that intersection. There's a small park in the center of the plaza, with the road running past it and buildings on all four sides.
[20:31] * Megan O`Cain carefully begins her way to the plaza, M16A4 ready in her hands
[20:32] *** Beyond the sandbags, the street continues. The staircase leads up to a balcony on the second floor of the building, which is a little more decorated than most of the other buildings you've seen in Limansk so far.
[20:37] <Megan O`Cain> Well, better than where we started.
[20:42] *** The Moon-Rabbits keep moving forward slowly, using whatever cover they can find.
[20:45] * GR continues on their path. Idly, they spin one of their throwing knives in their right hand, as if anticipating a sudden attack. (Come to think of it, where is the school the Monolith Forces are so intent on getting to?)
[20:47] <Megan O`Cain> Okay, where to next?
[20:49] *** Up ahead, in the increasing gloom created by the falling snow (which is a dirty dark grey in color), you see the park. It's a small, simple thing consisting of four paths converging on a small, broken fountain. There are splintered wooden benches along the paths, large thick trees and bushes, and a low fence surrounding everything. To the north of that, across the street, is a large three-story brick building with four pillars on the front holding a balcony up over the main entrance.
[20:51] *** "FACTOPOHOM" is printed in large letters over the main door.
[20:51] <Megan O`Cain> I wonder...
[20:54] <Chibi-Alex> You're at the plaza now, but you're about to leave our direct line of sight.
[20:56] <spiritflame> Chibi-Alex rolls 1d20 [ 6 ]
[20:57] *** SUDDENLY, GUNSHOTS!! One of the Moon-Rabbits with you is knocked off her feet as a bullet deflects off her helmet. She's unharmed, but completely surprised!
[20:57] <Megan O`Cain> !
[20:58] <GR>“ (Looks like it's showtime.)”
[20:58] *** Megan and GR, both of you roll 1d20 please
[20:58] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d20 [ 14 ]
[20:58] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d20 [ 5 ]
[21:02] *** The shooting is coming from the other side of the park AND further down the plaza area. You manage to catch sight of several people wearing mottled grey protective suits and green flak vests and hoods crouching behind cover and blasting away with automatic weapons.
[21:02] *** MONOLITH!!!
[21:03] <Megan O`Cain> (Figures.)
[21:04] * Megan O`Cain takes aim at the Monolith soldiers, and prepares to fire tungsten AAC .300 Blackout rounds
[21:07] <GR>“ (Here we go.)”
[21:07] *** ANd we need to pause here for tonight because I do need to get going. Shall we conclude this event tomorrow?
[21:08] <GR> (( Ready and waiting. The slaughter shall soon commence! ))
[21:09] <Megan O`Cain> (( Yeah, man. ))
[21:10] *** Excellent. Guaranteed fight-night tomorrow. Be ready to FHUCK SUM SHEEEIT!!!
[19:12] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:12] <spiritflame> Chibi-Alex rolls 1d20 [ 2 ]
[19:14] * Megan O`Cain readies her M16A4 with tungsten .300 AAC Blackout rounds
[19:14] *** One of the Moon-Rabbits shrieks and staggers backwards as he's struck multiple times across the chest and shoulder by a hail of bullets. A couple more strike him in his thigh as he starts to fall and he hits the ground, never getting a chance to fire a single shot.
[19:15] *** The other Moon-Rabbits rush for the trees, duck behind the broken fountain, sprawl behind what's left of one of the benches, or rush behind a nearby derelict truck that's in fairly good condition...and looks SUSPICIOUSLY like the Mystery Machine.
[19:21] * Megan O`Cain fires at any Monolith soldiers that are in her sights
[19:21] *** Some of the Moon-Rabbits start shooting back, snapping off single shots when they can while the Monolith soldiers lay down suppressive burst-fire.
[19:21] *** Megan, roll 1d20 please.
[19:21] * GR readies their knives. These ones are monofilament, more than capable of piercing through armor with ease. Add in their ability to toss them at speeds easily eclipsing Mach 15 and you know that one hit is more than enough to kill.
[19:22] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d20 [ 19 ]
[19:23] *** Overhead, the storm is getting a little worse. The wind is picking up slowly, pushing the falling snow into whorls and eddies in midair and on the ground. Red-colored lightning begins to flash within the clouds, and geiger counters begin to crackle faintly in the meantime.
[19:24] *** Megan, your shots strike one of the Monolith soldiers fully in the FACE, punching through his mask and skull and erupting out the back in a great gout of...BLACK?! He crumples to the ground, dead.
[19:24] <Chibi-Alex> Hey! We're hearing gunfire! Status!
[19:28] * GR lets their knives fly.
[19:28] <Megan O`Cain> Under fire! We got Monolith!
[19:28] *** How many GR?
[19:29] * GR lets loose about.... 100?! Where did they even get the space to carry that many knives?
[19:30] *** Roll 1d100 please!
[19:30] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d100 [ 56 ]
[19:32] *** You hear an incredible amount of wet thuds as the blades strike quite a few Monolith, and a few more bodies hit the ground, each of them skewered by several dozen blades sticking out of their limbs and backs and heads.
[19:33] * Megan O`Cain continues firing at the Monolith soldiers with her assault rifle
[19:33] *** A flare is fired up into the air, casting the entire plaza into bright orange light!
[19:37] *** In the distance you can now hear the distinctive thud of helicopter rotors beginning to slowly get louder.
[19:38] *** At the same time, a few Monolith soldiers wearing THIS begin to approach!
[19:39] <Monolith in Ratnik Suits> https://www.deviantart.com/mrsarto/art/STALKER-2-273223689
[19:41] * Megan O`Cain changes her target priority, and takes aim at the Ratniks
[19:42] * Monolith in Ratnik Suits are each armed with machine guns, heavy battle rifles, or...OH BLYAT!!!! A MULTI-SHOT GRENADE LAUNCHER!!!
[19:43] * Monolith in Ratnik Suits start sweeping the plaza with heavy automatic fire, while the ba[BLEEP]rd with the grenade launcher fires a shot at the Ukranian "Mystery Machine"!!
[19:44] * Megan O`Cain fires tungsten .300 AAC Blackout rounds at the Ratniks
[19:44] <spiritflame> Moon-Rabbits rolls 1d20 [ 20 ]
[19:46] * Moon-Rabbits manage to flee the blast area and are unharmed as the "Mystery Machine" is literally blown twenty feet STRAIGHT UP into the air, then falls back down after a few seconds, landing almost perfectly on what's left of its wheels, but the force of the impact literally PANCAKES it on the pavement. Its sides are crushed, the roof implodes, and whatever Scooby-Snacks might have been inside are certainly incinerated by the explosion.
[19:47] * GR switches tactics, putting the knives away. They point a hand at the Ratniks.... and with a gesture, form a strong tornado to sweep them all up!
[19:47] * A Monolith soldier leaps at GR and clubs them with the stock of his AK-74.
[19:50] * GR quickly turns with clearly inhuman reflexes and swipes at the solider. It's a blink and you'll miss it moment, but something flashes out from their wrist and cleaves through the air... and potentially through the soldier and their weapon at once!
[19:50] * Megan O`Cain is still firing at the enemy troops, including the Ratniks (who are now her targeting priority)
[19:52] * A Monolith soldier falls before GR. His lower torso falls forward, his UPPER torso falls backward, and black blood sprays EVERYWHERE.
[19:52] <GR>“ (Obsidian Blood.... curious.)”
[19:53] *** The Monolith power armor troops are the only ones left now. They continue to hold their ground, their armor absorbing an impressive amount of damage, but bullets are getting through here and there...and drawing MORE of that black blood from them.
[19:53] *** Megan and GR, both of you please roll 1d20.
[19:54] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d20 [ 20 ]
[19:54] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d20 [ 16 ]
[19:57] *** Megan, you take a direct hit from a PKM machine gun across your chest and shoulder.
[19:58] *** GR, a grenade detonates a few meters beside you. Not directly, but you're definitely inside the shrapnel spray.
[19:59] <Megan O`Cain> >_<
[20:00] <GR>“ (Ugh... thankfully, this suit's made of strong stuff. Best end this as quickly as possible.)”
[20:07] *** What shall you both do now?
[20:08] * Megan O`Cain is still firing at the Ratniks
[20:12] * The Moon-Rabbits are still fighting too, snapping off shots at the Monolithers and still chipping away at their armor, but they're clearly at a disadvantage.
[20:13] * GR decides that subtlety needs to go. With a gesture, part of their suit comes alive and forms into a massive storm of sharpened bits. Those bits fly off at speeds undectable by even the most sophisticated arrays to give the Monolith forces a seriously nasty shave.
[20:18] *** GR, please roll 1d100
[20:18] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d100 [ 71 ]
[20:24] *** The Monolith soldiers are all flung backwards by the impacts, transforming them all into confetti and sludge...and blowing the trees in the line of fire apart AND destroying the equipment the soldiers were all carrying. Including their armor suits.
[20:24] <spiritflame> The Moon-Rabbits rolls 1d20 [ 3 ]
[20:25] *** You hear a loud BANG behind you both as a Moon-Rabbit fires a LAW rocket into the sky, but completely misses the Monolith helicopter approaching.
[20:26] <Megan O`Cain> ?
[20:27] *** HOLY CRAP! That's not a Hind gunship approaching, it's a Kamov Ka-50!! That's an ultra-modern attack helicopter!!! Where the hell did Monolith get one of those?!?!?!
[20:30] * The Kamov Ka-50 approaches, opening fire with multiple chainguns!!
[20:31] * Megan O`Cain puts away her rifle, and then takes aim at the Kamov with her arm cannon
[20:34] * GR recollects the armor fragments, and takes a new approach. They leap to the top of one of the more stable buildings..... and with their new target confirmed, begin to make a powerful gravitational distortion around the Kamov. Get the blades and engines overworked, and it'll be a sitting duck!
[20:37] * The Kamov Ka-50 gets held in place, but its pilot quickly tries to swivel around to put GR in the line of fire for its 30mm autocannon!
[20:37] <GR>“ Sorry, but you're about to find a nasty surprise waiting for you.”
[20:38] * The Moon-Rabbits are currently rushing to get to cover from that helicopter!
[20:38] * The Moon-Rabbits only had the ONE LAW rocket too!
[20:39] * Megan O`Cain fires her arm cannon at the Kamov
[20:40] <spiritflame> Kamov Ka-50 rolls 1d100 [ 11 ]
[20:40] * Kamov Ka-50 shudders as it takes a hit, but it continues to hold together.
[20:41] * Kamov Ka-50 fires off a volley of rockets from its missile rails!!
[20:41] * Megan O`Cain fires rapid blasts from her arm cannon at the Kamov
[20:41] <spiritflame> Kamov Ka-50 rolls 1d20 [ 9 ]
[20:42] * GR clenches their hand, and makes the gravitational well increase even further.
[20:43] *** A few missiles streak down towards you all, but were aimed haphazardly. One missile strikes further up the street...but gets caught in midair by a weird pulsating shimmering mass, spinning around maddeningly as its propulsion system still operates. Then the missile is crushed into the size of a beer can in an eye-blink and drops to the ground, squirting explosive matter out the cracks.
[20:45] *** The other missiles strike elsewhere. One hits the park, blasting several of the remaining trees out of the ground and transforming the fountain into gravel. The other missiles strike elsewhere in Limansk, away from the immediate area.
[20:53] * GR brings their free hand back..... and as they thrust it forward, something forms out of thin air to impale the Kamov. Whatever it is defies description....
[20:54] * Megan O`Cain is still firing her arm cannon at the Kamov
[20:55] *** The Kamov EXPLODES in mid-air, crashing into the town about a block away, scattering debris far and wide.
[20:56] * The Moon-Rabbits slowly emerge from hiding and take a moment to assess the situation. Then they RUSH at the Monolith corpses and dive onto them.
[20:58] * The Moon-Rabbits start searching and stripping the bodies of everything useful.
[20:59] <Random Moon-Rabbit> Roan is dead!
[21:00] <Other Moon-Rabbit> Grab everything you can off of him then. We'll bring back the body in a little bit. SECURE THE PLAZA.
[21:00] <Chibi-Alex> Is everyone all right? What's your status now?
[21:01] <Megan O`Cain> Monolith down. Had to take out a helo and exos in the process.
[21:02] <GR> GR here. Looks like the worst of the forces have been routed. I'm feeling quite all right, so I plan on taking a quick look around, make certain we don't have any stragglers.
[21:09] *** All of the Monolith soldiers are dead, chopped up pretty badly and leaking black liquid everywhere. Sadly, most of their equipment was pretty badly damaged in the fight. The Moon-Rabbits weren't able to salvage as much as they would have liked (which is important in the Zone).
[21:10] *** Checking out the plaza, you can see a few things of interest. Near the school (which isn't an elementary school but some kind of technical school) there's a small staircase leading down. On the other side of the plaza is an archway in the side of one of the buildings that seems to have caught a Moon-Rabbit's interest.
[21:10] * Megan O`Cain uses her visor to analyze the black liquid
[21:11] *** The liquid is Human blood, but it's stained somehow.
[21:15] <Megan O`Cain> That doesn't look good at all. (tries to get a further analysis)
[21:15] * GR marks down this school, then leaps over to confirm what the Moon-Rabbit has found.
[21:17] *** Megan you easily obtain a sample of the stuff. Also, roll 1d20 please.
[21:18] *** GR, you find the Moon-Rabbit girl is point at the archway. It's actually a small porch with a sealed door just inside, but there's also a door off to the side that's been concealed but is partially open.
[21:19] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d20 [ 18 ]
[21:20] *** Megan, this Monolith soldier is wearing some kind of drug harness around his neck.
[21:21] <Megan O`Cain> Drug tainting? (tries to carefully extract the harness from the body)
[21:22] <GR>“ Very curious...”
[21:22] * GR heads over to investigate this door.
[21:25] *** Behind the door is a staircase leading down.
[21:27] <GR> GR here. One of the Moon-Rabbits found a hidden door. I'm planning on checking it out.
[21:28] *** The staircase leads straight downward, then turns sharply to the left.
[21:29] <Megan O`Cain> Megan here. Seems Monolith has been drugging themselves to no end to the point their blood is blackened.
[21:31] <GR>“ It's likely an attempt to make themselves more effective in combat. That, or someone's getting quite desperate for new troops.”
[21:33] *** The stairs are lit by some small electrical lights in some places. There's clearly power down there.
[21:34] <GR> Anyway, keep an eye out for any potential stragglers. There's power clearly being routed to this facility --- I'm headed in.
[21:35] * GR begins to head down the stairs.
[21:37] <Megan O`Cain> On it.
[21:40] *** The stairs continue to lead downwards past the landing, then turn sharply again to the left. You've gone down a good two stories so far.
[21:41] <GR>“ (Place looks remarkably well-preserved for being inside this place. Something big must be down here....)”
[21:44] * Megan O`Cain looks around the plaza some more
[21:45] * GR continues descending.
[21:46] *** The Moon-Rabbits are securing the plaza, setting up a machine gun nest at the barricades near the "Last Step" anomaly.
[21:52] *** GR, you finally get down to the bottom of the stairs and enter into a chamber. This place is odd. A short distance inside the doorway there's a step down, forming what looks like a shallow empty pool that's about a foot deep. Pillars are set up regularly around the circumference of the dry pool. This is VERY odd because someone obviously deliberately built this chamber like this.
[21:55] *** On the far side of the room, brightly lit by a functioning ceiling light, is a sliding door that's partially open. The door itself was designed to blend in seamlessly with the stone wall.
[21:58] * GR taps something on the side of their helmet, nabbing a few images of this location. The images are first saved to a micro data-crystal, and then duplicates are sent back to Megan and the others for secondary opinions.
[22:00] * Megan O`Cain looks at the images GR took
[22:07] * GR heads over to check out the sliding door. (And what have we here?)
[22:08] *** The door didn't close properly because a thick pipe had gotten lodged across the threshold, keeping it from sealing shut. Beyond the door you can just make out computer equipment.
[22:09] <GR> Jackpot.
[22:10] * GR heads in to check this equipment out. What clues might be obtained here?
[22:13] *** Let's pause here for the night, and finish up the finale tomorrow evening, shall we?
[22:13] *** It IS getting late, and some of you are probably working in the morning.
[22:14] <Megan O`Cain> (( Sure thing, man. As far as I know, aside from Kung Fu, I've got no plans tomorrow night. ))
[22:15] <GR> (( Fair enough. Thankfully I have my Fridays generally free. ))
[22:16] *** Excellent. That'll give us plenty of time to finish up the last part of this event. Good night to all of you.
[00:23] *** in the darkest part of tokyo..in a dilapidated office..

[00:25] <+luna_P> Evening, Caligo
[00:25] <+luna_P> Welcome to Suburban Senshi: the internet equivalent of guys with little stickers of Calvin taking a wizz.
[00:25] * Caligo walks in
[00:25] <Caligo> ...what's this about.......
[00:25] <Caligo> ....I was with my family
[00:26] <Sumi Mattine> ..we have a lead...
[00:27] <Caligo> is that why you called me....about stupid teenagers getting themselves lost
[00:28] <Sumi Mattine> the police aren't doing s[BLEEP]t about it...so why not us
[00:28] <Caligo> I told you before..I have no interest in it....I have my own work today
[00:29] <Rika O.> I would have thought showing up the cops would bring you some sort of pleasure..that is..outside the pleasure of murdering criminals
[00:29] <Caligo> ..I don't murder.....I cleanse the street of vermin
[00:29] <Sumi Mattine> yeah well...maybe you can do something with this too...
[00:30] * Sumi Mattine holds up a cellphone..it has blood..as well as some other substance on it
[00:30] <Sumi Mattine> ..found this at the scene of one of the kidnappings
[00:30] <Caligo> ..took it from under the nose of police?
[00:30] <Sumi Mattine> ..I had help
[00:30] * Rika O. gives a slight smirk
[00:31] * Sumi Mattine tosses the phone to Rika..who catches it
[00:32] <Caligo> ..you could have done this without me
[00:37] <Sumi Mattine> I like seeing you squirm
[00:38] <Rika O.> ...Strangers in the Night....
[00:38] * Rika O. holds up the phone..which seems to float briefly
[00:38] * Rika O. has a slight spasm..and then starts spitting out blood as well as the other liquid...
[00:39] <Caligo> ...you are disgusting...
[00:39] <Sumi Mattine> ...well..
[00:40] <Rika O.> ...Death..devour...filfth unimaginable......wants..needs cannot have.....
[00:40] <Sumi Mattine> ..location...
[00:41] * Rika O. coughs..spitting up more of the liquid, then wiping her mouth...
[00:41] <Rika O.> ...the docks....
[00:45] *** after a trip through dark alleyways and backroads
[00:48] * The three slowly approach a pitch black dock..and slowly opens it...
[00:48] <Sumi Mattine> ..so this is the place....
[00:49] <Rika O.> yes....this is where the blood lead
[00:50] <Sumi Mattine> ..light it up, Caligo
[00:51] <Caligo> ...i'm increasing my fee, woman...
[00:51] * Caligo mutters some words..clenching his fist
[00:52] * Caligo releases his fist.......a flame appearing from his palm...
[00:53] *** the room is slightly lit..enough to reveal several large webbed cocoons..dangling from the ceiling
[00:56] * Rika O. gasps at the site
[00:56] <Rika O.> *sight
[00:56] * Caligo walks over to one of the cocoons...and notices some black hair twisted in the webbing...
[00:57] <Sumi Mattine> ...open it...
[00:57] <Caligo> ..woman..i am not your servent
[00:57] * Sumi Mattine glares at Caligo....and then pulls out a knife..and cuts open the cocoon...and dashes back as it's contents slide down...
[00:58] *** The body is of a teenage girl....well it was one....her body has been turned into a dried husk....as well most of her form has been spilt open..and certain organs torn out...
[00:58] <Sumi Mattine> .......
[00:59] <Caligo> ...
[00:59] <Caligo> ..we're not alone
[01:00] * Sumi Mattine and Rika glance around..as the sound of something scuttling around can be heard
[01:01] <Caligo> ABOVE!
[01:02] *** the three jump away as something lands on the ground....
[01:03] *** the creature looks like a twisted half woman-half spider thing...it has obviously grafted human organs onto itself....and twiitches slightly...

[01:04] * Kumodou ignores Caligo..and instead starts to rush towards Semi and Rika
[01:04] <Kumodou> MINEMINEMINEMINEMINEMINEMINE!
[01:05] * Rika O. pulls out a gun and fires...catching the monster in the eye and causing it to careen out of the way
[01:05] * Sumi Mattine pulls out her cellphone..as well as a card labelled HENSHIN
[01:05] <Sumi Mattine> ..Moon..Obelisk Power....MAKE-UP
[01:06] * Sumi Mattine presses the card against the phone
[01:06] <Phone> ♦ TRANSFORM

[01:08] <Kumodou> WHO'S THERE!?
[01:08] *** Sailor Black Moon has joined #suburbansenshi3
[01:08] <+luna_P> Evening, Sailor Black Moon
[01:08] <+luna_P> Welcome to Suburban Senshi: The Outlet it's safe to stick your things into.
[01:08] <Sailor Black Moon> I am the shadow of the moon that covers the light...

[01:08] <Sailor Black Moon> I am Sailor Black Moon!
[01:08] <Sailor Black Moon> and in the name of the Black Moon Clan...I'll kill you
[01:09] * Kumodou screeches and runs forward...but Black Moon simply leaps over it, sliding back.....
[01:09] * Kumodou keeps going though and runs up the ceiling...
[01:10] * Kumodou screams and leaps down with enough force to cause a slight shockwave, causing Black Moon to stumble off balance
[01:10] <Rika O.> BLACK MOON! WATCH IT!
[01:11] * Kumodou fires webbing at Black Moon and manages to entangle her, then swings her hard into the side of the warehouse walls several times....
[01:12] * Sailor Black Moon coughs up a bit of blood as she can feel one of her ribs break
[01:12] <Kumodou> NOW...ADD YOU TOO....
[01:13] * Kumodou unhinges it's jaw...and is about to bite into her....when a bolt of lightening suddenly strikes the creature...and through extension Black Moon....
[01:14] * Kumodou screeches and stumbles back
[01:14] * Sailor Black Moon winces...and manages to free herself, ignoring all the pain
[01:15] * Caligo spams the lightening spell............blasting the creature several times....but it manages to dodge several of them....
[01:15] * Sailor Black Moon draws another card..and presses it agains there phone
[01:15] <Phone> ♦ SWORD
[01:16] * Sailor Black Moon holds out her hand as a black metallic sword flies into it
[01:16] <Sailor Black Moon> HEY
[01:16] * Kumodou turns...only to have the blade thrust into the gaping wound of it's eye socket
[01:17] * Sailor Black Moon pulls the sword sideways...ripping open a chunk of the monster's face....
[01:17] * Kumodou screeches and screams in pain...spewing gore from it's wound
[01:19] * Sailor Black Moon draws another card from her deck.....and presses it to the phone
[01:19] <Phone> ♦ FINAL ATTACK
[01:19] * Sailor Black Moon 's hand glows with dark energy....
[01:20] * Sailor Black Moon grips the sword as the energy travels through it...
[01:20] <Sailor Black Moon> Moon....Death....
[01:20] * Sailor Black Moon swings the blade...sending a huge burst of the dark energy at the creature
[01:20] <Sailor Black Moon> ABSOLUTION!!!!
[01:21] * Kumodou looks up...and SCREAMS as the power consumes it...tearing it's form apart...
[01:21] * Sailor Black Moon wipes the blood from her mouth...and winces from some of the burns she has from the earlier attack...
[01:21] <Sailor Black Moon> ..you enjoyed that didn't you
[01:22] <Caligo> ..you got free..didn't you
[01:22] * Rika O. looks at the cocoons and then at the remains of the thing...
[01:22] <Rika O.> ..what do we do with all this
[01:22] <Sailor Black Moon> ...burn it
[01:22] <Sailor Black Moon> ....burn it to the ground...
[01:23] * Sailor Black Moon and Rika leave the building...as Caligo mutters words...and casts a MASSIVE fire spell on the warehouse.....burning it...
[01:23] *** the sounds of fire engines fill the air as the blaze can be seen for miles
[01:24] *** meanwhile..elsewhere...
[01:24] *** a figure sits on a make shift throne......
[01:24] <figure 1> ...Kumodou has been killed...
[01:24] <woman> ..................by whom...
[01:25] <figure 2> they say a sailor senshi...but no senshi would fight like this...
[01:25] <woman> ..it does not matter....Kumodou had her little fun..and thanks to her death.....we can now prepare
[01:26] <figure 1> ...what do we do now....
[01:26] * woman leans forward out of the darkness...revealing a woman with light purplish blue skin....a scarred left eye...wing like objects on her forehead..and a insect wings on her back..her long frizzled blue hair covers part of her face..she grins...
[01:27] <DD Girl Indigo> ....it has only begun....
[01:27] *** To Be Continued?
[06:47] *** Peinforte Manor, Paisley's bedroom
[06:48] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte murmurs and sits up in bedm the sheets falling away from her, topless (but don't get too excited as a shaft of light obscures anything naughty)
[06:48] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte smokes on her pipe
[06:49] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ♡ Yeah... I anm *definitely* keeping this hair ♡
[06:50] * Exeter L. Wakefield gorans next to her "God that was some brokeback mountain s[BLEEP]t"
[06:50] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...I don't think that refernce means what you think it means, love
[06:50] <Exeter L. Wakefield> no I mean I think my back is broken
[06:51] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte snorts and applies some healing elixir "Don't be weak."
[06:51] * Exeter L. Wakefield sits up
[06:51] * Exeter L. Wakefield admirs her cur-- "Where's that damned light coming from, I can't see any details"
[06:52] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> I have no idea, this room should be pitch black and the windows are blacked out.
[06:52] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte puts on Exeter's shirt concering anything inappropriate for younger eyes and suddenly the light is gone
[06:53] <@Paisley Pythia Peinforte> ...Well, that's a thing.
[06:53] <Exeter L. Wakefield> Your manor really is something.
[06:53] * @Paisley Pythia Peinforte drags on her pipe and nods
[06:54] <Exeter L. Wakefield> And so are you~
[06:54] * Exeter L. Wakefield turns and goes for another round with Paise as the room just fills with a God Ray™ so bright even Sony was unprepared
[19:10] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...or more specifically CONTINUING FROM WHERE THURSDAY NIGHT ENDED.
[19:16] * GR heads into the room. What might they find?
[19:18] *** The room itself is fairly big, roughly 20 feet wide and about 12 feet across. There are banks of servers along the walls, various computer monitors in the far wall, and primary workstation in the middle of the room.
[19:18] <GR>“ (Hmmm...)”
[19:19] *** The computer equipment itself is an eclectic mix. Some of it is late Cold War vintage, while other bits are fairly modern, or even ultra-modern.
[19:19] <GR>“ (Oh, this is very interesting.)”
[19:20] * GR takes a few more images of this location, copies them over, and sends the copies over towards everyone else. Now it's time to investigate these computers.
[19:20] * Megan O`Cain is looking around the bodies for salvage
[19:20] *** You literally see some of those early-style mainframes that were the size of soda machines (pre-1990s tech), cathode ray tube monitors attached to backlit keyboards and wireless mice, some flatscreen plasma monitors, and even a few things that look like holographic displays.
[19:23] <GR>“ (My my... I wonder if these were imported, or custom-made.)”
[19:23] * GR heads over to the closest monitors, and checks what displays they might have.
[19:26] *** The monitors are all powered down. Everything seems to be in standby mode. Maybe the power's out? There are dimly-lit lights up on the ceiling so there IS electricity in the room though.
[19:27] * GR looks around for whatever should be able to power these monitors back on.
[19:27] *** Search the room? Y/N
[19:28] * GR will search the room.
[19:35] *** Checking the back of the room, you find a pretty old style breaker panel. It looks like some parts of it were switched off. Pretty old tech.
[19:37] *** Turning the breaker switches back on SHOULD restore power.
[19:37] * GR carefully checks to see if the breakers are labeled. Last thing they want to do is flip one and suddenly have somewhere else either go dark or light up.
[19:42] <Megan O`Cain> (Hmm. Wonder what all I can scrounge off of these jerkwads.)
[19:43] *** The monitors all light up, showing just static or the Blue Screen of Death. Or nothing at all. Some of them have broken down in the harsh environment of the Zone.
[19:44] *** The keyboards start to glow, and the CRT monitors light up.
[19:45] <CRT Monitor> - Archive online. -
[19:49] <CRT Monitor> - Replay most recent entry? -
[19:49] <GR>“ (Hmm...)”
[19:50] <GR> Hey Megan. Looks like there's some entries on this puppy. Sending you my feed.
[19:52] *** The holographic displays come online with a large burst of three-dimensional static, then resolving into an eerily clear image. It's THIS room, but it was back when it was in much better shape.
[19:53] * GR makes certain Megan is also able to see this. They move to play the feed --- who knows what they've come across?
[19:54] * CRT Monitor shows that this recording was made back in 2011.
[19:55] *** In the holograms you can see things shaking periodically, alarm prompts flashing, and hear the sounds of explosions in the far distance.
[19:56] *** Someone limps towards the main console, looking and sounding quite badly hurt.
[19:57] *** Leona Morimoto (hologram) has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:57] <+luna_P> Evening, Leona Morimoto (hologram)
[19:57] <+luna_P> Welcome to Suburban Senshi: Sprache Nihongo?
[19:58] * Leona Morimoto (hologram) slumps against the console, staring at the main recorder. Part of the side of her head has been burned, and blood is streaming down her arm and leg.
[19:59] <GR> Hmmm....
[20:00] *** At the same time, the remaining functioning monitors start showing other scenes of devastating warfare. On the ground, in the air, and in low orbit there is a massive battle going on, and it appears to be decidedly one-sided.
[20:01] * Leona Morimoto (hologram) has an expression on her face that seems completely out of place on her: confusion. Befuddlement. FEAR.
[20:02] <GR> Huh. Rarely think you'd see this smug b[BLEEP]ch so rattled.
[20:03] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ They're abandoning us to our fate.
[20:03] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ Megalomesembria has surrendered unconditionally to the Van Saar.
[20:04] <Megan O`Cain> Looks like she escaped fighting somewhere.
[20:05] <GR> There's a term I've not heard. Megalosembria --- think your little buddy or the Kits might know more about that?
[20:05] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ The Greater Korean Republic is being systematically bombarded out of existence. Pyongyang was just struck by a 10-megaton fusion missile from orbit.
[20:06] <GR> *Megalomesembria
[20:06] <Megan O`Cain> Maybe.
[20:07] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ The "Billion Strong" has been wiped out to the man. The Ghost Foxes aren't taking prisoners.
[20:07] * Leona Morimoto (hologram) staggers as another explosion shakes the place.
[20:08] * Leona Morimoto (hologram) calls up additional images, showing the various forces of the Imperial Guard, the Ghost Foxes, and the Fleet advancing and fighting.
[20:09] *** Wait...some of the soldiers fighting alongside the Imperial Guard look very odd. Their equipment looks dingy and damaged, but they don't seem the least bit concerned about it. Many of them are fighting with severe injuries with no loss of ability.
[20:10] <Megan O`Cain> Who are those guys?
[20:11] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ At this very moment the Van Saar are preparing to celebrate their victory against the Alliance in the Necronium War.
[20:12] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ Their main fleet has engaged the Ravager, but it's too late for them to stop the Kamikaze. But...it's too late for US as well.
[20:14] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ Our attempt to summon the strength to engage the Onryo directly has failed utterly. *IT* has decided emerge from neutrality and chose to side with the Van Saar!!
[20:17] *** One of the monitors shows an extremely blurred image of something, but somehow you can sense unbelievable power emanating from it. "They lied to us all. Heresy...no term more apt. Now I set things right."
[20:17] * Leona Morimoto (hologram) sighs
[20:18] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ Our enemies believe that we have been defeated and that I am no longer among the living.
[20:18] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ But there are GRAVELY mistaken!
[20:20] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ We are all that remain, but all that is NECESSARY.
[20:20] <Megan O`Cain> It? What could she be talking about?
[20:23] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ For here within the dimensional instabilities of the Zone we will be shielded from the effects of the Kamikaze. Here, we will raise a great army! Together we will continue to prosecute the Necronium War and avenge every single slight we have suffered at the hands of the Van Saar and their monstrous ruler!
[20:24] <Megan O`Cain> And yet, you still got pissed at the mention of the bad man. :P
[20:24] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ We know the truth of the power they've tapped into. And how that power MUST be eliminated!
[20:25] <GR> You were supposed to stay dead when you drowned on La Planeta del Agua (ARRRRRRRIBA). But like a bad series, you just had to come back when nobody wanted you to.
[20:25] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ We know the truth! We have been beaten. We have been forgotten! We have nothing left!!
[20:26] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ BUT!
[20:26] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ OUR!
[20:26] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ ANGER!
[20:27] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ We will take that spark and start a fire that will become a great conflagration to END the Onryo's tyranny!!
[20:27] <Leona Morimoto (hologram)> ♦ PEACE. THROUGH. POWER!
[20:27] *** Leona Morimoto (hologram) has left #suburbansenshi3
[20:27] <CRT Monitor> - End recording. -
[20:28] <Megan O`Cain> She's got a real hard-on to kill Solar, doesn't she?
[20:29] <GR> That's putting it lightly. Clearly dying did nothing for her mental state.
[20:35] <GR> I'm gonna see if there are any other records here we can use.
[20:36] <Megan O`Cain> Go for it. I'm still trying to scrounge over here.
[20:38] * GR gets to it.
[20:39] * Megan O`Cain gets back to scrounging from the bodies
[20:39] *** Roll 1d100 please.
[20:41] <Megan O`Cain> (( Who? ))
[20:44] *** GR, since they're at the console.
[20:44] <Megan O`Cain> (( Okay. Just checking. ))
[20:46] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d100 [ 15 ]
[20:50] <CRT Monitor> - One entry remaining. Encryption code required prior to viewing. -
[20:51] <GR> Damn. This one's coded.
[20:54] <Megan O`Cain> Need a hand?
[20:55] <GR> It'd be greatly appreciated. It's my little brother who's more into the coding side of things, and right now he's stationed elsewhere.
[20:55] * Megan O`Cain has Dean assist GR in getting the entry unlocked
[20:56] <GR> Now let's see what we have here....
[20:57] *** The holographic display clouds again, then clears, showing a different location altogether. The timestamp indicates this was taken in 2009.
[21:00] *** You see an aerial point-of-view of a densely-packed city surrounded by extensive wilderness. Rain is coming down hard, but there are still fighter craft by the hundreds circling over the city and climbing higher on nearly ballistic trajectories. Rapid flashes of light are rapidly shooting up into the sky as well.
[21:02] *** The fighter craft are all firing cannons and launching missiles like crazy at something massive descending through the clouds, the air before it engulfed in a near-solid wall of steam light brightly from within by a fiery glow like an erupting volcano.
[21:03] <Megan O`Cain> Huh...
[21:05] *** The smoke gradually dissipates, revealing the blocky, savagely utilitarian prow of an Astartes strike cruiser. More are dropping down through the storm clouds as well. The missiles and cannon-fire from the ground strike the gargantuan vessels easily, but splatter against their armor with all the effectiveness of a flyswatter against an elephant.
[21:05] <~> - We are the Van Saar. -
[21:07] *** Point-defense cannons on the strike cruisers all start firing, cutting a swath through the defending aircraft as dozens upon dozens of teardrop-shaped pods erupt out of the bottom of the strike cruisers and rocket down towards the city itself.
[21:07] <~> - Armies will be shattered. -
[21:08] *** The camera point-of-view changes to on the ground. Alliance soldiers are crowding the streets and getting into cover as they watch several of the large pods streak down from the sky and slam into the ground nearby.
[21:09] <Megan O`Cain> I see. This was during the Zealot War.
[21:11] *** The Alliance Marines open fire all at once as the thick doors on the sides of the pods fold open. A moment later the Alliance soldiers start dying by the dozens as they're struck by a continuous barrage of devastatingly accurate and brutally effective high-explosive rounds that punch through their armor and detonate gruesomely INSIDE their bodies.
[21:11] <GR> Damn. These guys don't f[BLEEP]k around.
[21:12] <Megan O`Cain> Bolt rounds. No doubt about it.
[21:12] *** Massive humanoid figures encased inside dark grey power armor emerge from their drop pods, shrugging off the attacks of the Alliance soldiers and laying down an enormous hail of fire from their boltguns that will leave few, if any, survivors before them. The Ghost Foxes have landed.
[21:13] <~> - Worlds will burn. -
[21:16] *** The scene switches to a different street. A tank is frantically reversing, firing its cannons as quickly as they're able as a massive Mecha stomps towards it rapidly. As the tank skids and tries to change direction, it's struck by an enormous gout of greenish slime vomited from the mouth of the Mecha...which looks more like some kind of Kaiju encased in armor and cybernetically augmented!
[21:18] <Megan O`Cain> Now what was that?
[21:19] *** The tank's armor quickly dissolves and it begins to fold and collapse on itself. Meanwhile, the Bio-Mech continues to stomp forward, followed closely by a large number of Predator-Fafnir grav-tanks and Leman Russ tanks. A few more Alliance tanks attempt to shoot at the Bio-Mecha, but it quickly closes the distance and literally SLAPS the tanks aside, roaring like it's shouting "GET THAT S[BLEEP]T OUTTA HERE, B[BLEEP]CH!!!"
[21:20] <GR> And to think, this is supposed to have happened around 10 years ago...
[21:21] <Megan O`Cain> Indeed.
[21:22] *** The scene switches to a massive plaza dominated by an equally giant statue that looms over everything like an Amazonian goddess of grim visage.
[21:23] *** THOUSANDS of Alliance soldiers have assembled across the plaza, supported by hundreds of tanks, armored fighting vehicles, and self-propelled artillery. All of them take aim at the streets on the far side.
[21:25] *** Bio-Mecha, Reaver Titans, and Imperial Knights rush into the plaza from the opposite side, spearheading a wave of Leman Russ tanks, Land Raiders, and Baneblade super-heavy tanks. The skies overhead darken even further. Not from the storm though.
[21:25] *** NIGHTGAUNTS! Thousands of them! The cities' fighter cover is quickly being overwhelmed and annihilated.
[21:28] *** The Alliance opens fire with everything it has, tearing into the oncoming horde with a spectacular barrage that engulfs the Imperial Guard in a wave of fire. One of the Bio-Mecha staggers and falls as it takes a series of blasts that rips open its hull and blows one of its limbs off in a gruesome eruption of gore and viscera.
[21:30] <~> - Now, at last, on this world, vengeance shall be mine. -
[21:32] *** One of the Alliance soldiers looks up to see a cluster of drop-pods SLAM into the ground behind their defensive lines. All attempts at shooting them down had failed as multiple Nightgaunt drone-fighters sacrificed themselves to the AA fire, their flame-engulfed forms crashing to the ground a few seconds later.
[21:35] *** From out of the carnage and wreckage caused by the drop-pods emerge the blocky forms of a pair of heavily-armed and reinforced Space Marine Dreadnaughts. One is equipped with a pair of massive claws large enough to disembowel an elephant with a single blow. The other is equipped with a Vulcan cannon and a massive sword. The air around both shimmers against the rain, revealing the existence of shield generators. Both attack with a savageness that almost seems gleeful.
[21:37] *** Between the two Dreadnaughts, however, is a third figure. It's obscured by a thick dark oily mist that envelops it like a shroud, but the eyes glow with a steady blue-green light.
[21:39] *** The figure steps forward, ignoring the automatic fire now being concentrated on him, raises an arm, and the thick mist that surrounds him EXPLODES in all directions, sweeping outwards like a tidal wave of ebon darkness.
[21:39] *** And people start dying. Very quickly.
[21:41] <Megan O`Cain> Yikes.
[21:43] *** The statue takes several direct hits from battle cannon fire and collapses. As the Imperial Guard sweeps through the plaza and plunges further into the city, the clouds in the distance part as an Alliance destroyer falls from the sky, engulfed in flames. It crashes a few seconds later, instantly transforming an entire section of the city into an annihilated hellscape.
[21:46] *** The miasma-wreathed figure climbs up on top of an abandonded Alliance Warthog and watches as the Imperial Guard surges through, giving him a wide berth. The dark mist hangs low on the ground all around...and many of the slain Alliance soldiers begin to sit up once more, their features pallid with blackened veins visible and eyes sunken deep in their sockets.
[21:47] *** Standing a short distance away, watching everything with a grim expression...oh s[BLEEP]t is that YUKARI?
[21:49] *** Yukari watches with satisfaction as the recently slain Alliance soldiers start to follow the Imperial Guard at the order of their master.
[21:51] * Megan O`Cain tries to see who the miasma-wreathed figure is
[21:51] *** The miasma-wreathed figure hops down off of the Warthog and continues onwards, his Dreadnaughts marching along on either side of him, the newly-raised undead gathering all around.
[21:51] <~> - For I...am the Dark Angel of Death. -
[21:54] <CRT Monitor> - Recording ends. File footage - The final battle of the Alliance world "Port Hedland". -
[21:55] <Megan O`Cain> Port Hedland, hm?
[21:56] <GR> My word... least this explains Morimoto's hate-boner concerning Solarchos.
[21:56] <CRT Monitor> - Total Alliance defeat, facilitated primarily due to the direct involvement of the Onryo and the Dark Hand of Jigoku. -
[21:58] <Megan O`Cain> Dark Hand of Jigoku, eh? Something to discuss with Yukari about, don't you think?
[21:59] <GR> Indeed.
[21:59] <Megan O`Cain> Anything else in there?
[22:00] <CRT Monitor> - Industrial facilities owned and operated by the Morimoto Conglomerate present on Port Hedland. Financial losses exceeded one trillion USD. Personnel losses included Minoru Morimoto-Kamov, one of many members of the Morimoto family related by intermarriages and concubines. -
[22:02] <CRT Monitor> - Minoru Morimoto-Kamov's body later found impaled through the torso on a length of sharpened rebar alongside all members of the Alliance military garrison's high command in a manner reminiscent of the Transylvanian historical figure "Vlad Tepes". -
[22:04] <CRT Monitor> - Entry ends. Additional files located in protected archives at Lab X-7 (Pripyat). -
[22:05] <Chibi-Alex> Okay guys! We're secure here. Get back to the outpost for debriefing, then we'll head back through the Red Forest.
[22:06] *** Chibi-Alex [BoundlessExuberanceOfYouth@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 (But before that...FOOD!)

[18:08] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Diet Building
[18:15] *** D. Kakaku has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:15] <+luna_P> Evening, D. Kakaku

[18:15] *** Mitsuo Hanamoto has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:15] <+luna_P> Evening, Mitsuo Hanamoto
[18:15] <+luna_P> Welcome to Suburban Senshi: now with 100% more Obnoxious
[18:15] <D. Kakaku> there's a bill to Introduce Daylight savings time?
[18:16] <Mitsuo Hanamoto> yes, I think this is the let me check here.
[18:16] <Mitsuo Hanamoto> ....
[18:16] <Mitsuo Hanamoto> 17th bill
[18:16] <D. Kakaku> it's been tried 16 times, Daylight Savings time is a nightmare.
[18:17] <Mitsuo Hanamoto> it can't be all bad, right?
[18:18] <Mitsuo Hanamoto> some of the diet emmbers want it so japan can be in line with the rest of the world
[18:18] <D. Kakaku> funny thing.
[18:18] <D. Kakaku> that's actually the reason we want to abolish Daylight savings time.
[18:19] <D. Kakaku> well, I think most of us anyway.
[18:19] <D. Kakaku> some want it back to standard time all year, others want to go all in on Daylight time year round.
[18:20] <D. Kakaku> I've read that some states are drafting their own bills.
[18:21] <D. Kakaku> I wonder if we'll have a "New Jersey" Time, "Pennsylvania Time" and a "Delaware Time" that are all completely different.
[18:24] <D. Kakaku> welp, there go the votes.
[18:29] <D. Kakaku> and a vote of 17 to 442 not in favor.
[18:30] <Mitsuo Hanamoto> so we won't be moving the clocks.
[18:30] <D. Kakaku> personally, I'd rather not move them at all, and the debate'll probably reignite again in about a month when the UK does it, then Austrailia shortly after.
[18:36] *** D. Kakaku has left #suburbansenshi3 (other than that, I don't see anything wrong with keeping one time)
[18:36] *** Mitsuo Hanamoto has left #suburbansenshi3 (mmhmmm)

[17:57] * Keiko sits on a barstool in the massive kitchen making a sandwhich and watching the cameras
[18:00] * Keiko reaches over and grabs a bag of chips from a cupboard
[18:01] *** Freya Felinus has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:01] <+luna_P> Evening, Freya Felinus
[18:01] <+luna_P> Welcome to Suburban Senshi: Taking frequent trips to the sewers of our minds.
[18:01] * Freya Felinus is with her grandchildren, as can be seen on the cameras
[18:02] * Keiko smirks and pokes the horn for the rroom theyre in
[18:02] <Horn> ♦ HOOOONK~
[18:06] * Keiko grins sadistically and slams her hand on the alarm buton then RUNS
[18:06] <Freya Felinus> !!!!
[18:07] <Freya Felinus> CHILDREN COME WITH ME!
[18:07] * Freya Felinus tries to gether up the children
[18:07] <Freya Felinus> *gather
[18:07] * FreyannaTaisho runs downstairs
[18:08] * FreyannaTaisho looks at her brother, then the alarms, and grins " SCATTER!" she and her brother run for it
[18:08] <Freya Felinus> come back here!
[18:09] <Keiko's voice> ♦ Welcome to Taisho Manor! Home to the hardest children to babysit! Why? Because WE DONT LIKE NAPS!!!
[18:09] * AgarionTaisho laughs from somewhere outside
[18:11] * The alarms blair throughout the house with a female voice: DANGER. DANGER. ALL PERSONNEL TO THE SAFERROM. ALL PERSONNEL TO THE SAFEROOM.
[18:23] * Keiko drops down next to freya and grins "dont worry its not personal....."
[18:24] <Keiko> its training~
[18:32] <Freya Felinus> ...I see
[18:33] * Keiko disappears through a hidden passage "no one has ever found all 9"
[18:34] * Freya Felinus sighs...and smirks
[18:34] * Freya Felinus transforms
[18:34] * Freya Felinus is now known as Freya
[18:34] * Freya now has the senses of a cat
[18:36] *** What will you do?
[18:37] * Freya sniffs the air for the children
[18:38] *** The air is smothered with their scents. Its hard to pinpoin one.
[18:40] * Freya thinks...
[18:42] * Freya first heads towards the library
[18:44] *** the library is one of the jewels of the Manor. over 500,000 tomes, books, and writings are housed in its massive space.
[18:45] *** the is a swinging ladder to reach the shelves that are at the 11ft ceiling.
[18:45] *** Comfy couchs and chairs are littered allong the bookshelves in the center. A computer area in the back with 10 set ups.
[18:48] * Freya sniffs the air
[18:55] * Freya tries to pinpoint one of the children here
[19:14] * Freya smells a familer scent and starts to wander amoung the books
[19:16] *** the bookcases are massive stretching high to the celings. There are many spots empty of books and instead have pillows
[19:20] * Freya smiles and hops up towards the bookcases
[19:34] * Nessie is laying against one of the pillows
[19:35] * Freya smiles and rubs against Nessie, who is startled but realizes who it is
[19:36] *** youve found one but 8 remain. Hurry hurry.
[19:37] * Freya gets the code from nessie and dashes off
[19:37] * Freya thinks...
[19:37] * Freya goes outside..
[19:39] *** the back yard itself is a half acre of lush grass, but on the edge of the grass is the royal forest which spans 50 acres
[19:43] * Freya tries to make her way towards the training grounds
[19:44] *** the training grounds are 2 acres of proffession grade courses and training areas.
[19:47] *** theres an archery area, multiple melee areas. A blacktop srea for evasion, and many more.
[19:47] * Freya sniffs the air
[19:48] * is near as is keiko
[19:48] * FreyannaTaisho ^
[19:49] * Freya tries to follow the scent
[19:49] *** which scent?
[19:51] * Freya goes for Freyanna's first
[19:51] * FreyannaTaisho is near by in her domain.
[19:54] * FreyannaTaisho lounges on a knife throwing robots arm, a pink and orange umbrella blocking the sun.
[19:56] * Freya walks over..wiggles her butt..and then leaps at Freyanna
[19:57] * The robot fires knives at freya on repitition
[19:58] <FreyannaTaisho> Watch out grandma. Theyre real~
[19:59] * FreyannaTaisho leaps from the robot past freya and grins "im the princess of evasion!"
[20:04] * Freya easily avoids them
[20:04] <Freya> it is not a problem
[20:04] * Freya teleports!
[20:06] * FreyannaTaisho grins and back flips away from freya
[20:10] * Freya reappears again..and then teleports again
[20:15] * Freya tries to get at Freyanna again
[20:16] * FreyannaTaisho leaps over freya and rolls away
[20:17] * Freya prepares herself
[20:18] * FreyannaTaisho flips to stand and runs to wards the house "cant catch me!"
[20:26] * Freya chases after her..teleporting every few feet to get ahead of the girl
[20:30] * FreyannaTaisho grins and drops through a brick dissapearing
[20:49] <Freya> now now
[20:50] * Freya knows she can't get through the brick
[21:15] *** a large paw lowers over freya
[21:22] * Freya turns and looks!
[21:22] * FreyannaTaisho is now known as frey(Lion)
[21:22] * frey(Lion) pushes freya down in a firm hold
[21:24] <Freya> OOF!
[21:25] * frey(Lion) ROARS and holds freya down
[21:26] * Keiko opens the door " she got you?"
[21:41] <Freya> ..yes...
[21:50] * Keiko looks at the house "all clear mom!"
[21:52] <KANRI's voice> ♦ Well done my little ones. Remember to always be aware. Be careful my loves, not everyone is our friend. I love you~
[21:52] * FreyannaTaisho grins "yay!! I did it!"
[21:53] <Freya> oof ><
[21:53] * FreyannaTaisho gets off of freya " sorry grandma"
[21:55] * Keiko looks at her tablet "yep all green. You ok grandma? Any broken bones?"
[21:56] <Freya> just my pride
[21:58] * Keiko snorts "you just gotta not give up. We're felinus' we dont know what that means!"
[22:06] * Freya is now known as Freya Felinus
[22:06] <Freya Felinus> indeed child
[22:11] * Keiko claps her hands "who wants victory ice cream sundaes?"
[22:19] <Freya Felinus> that may be quite the treat
[22:21] * Keiko leads everyone to the freezer which carries eveeyones favorites in gallons
[22:32] *** Keiko has left #suburbansenshi3 (VICTORY!!!)
[18:29] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[18:30] * Chibi-AnTil oversees everything as everyone gathers up the last of their gear and prepares to move north from Yanov Station.
[18:33] * The Kits are all checking over their hostile environment suits for any unpatched damage and putting on sealed helmets and air tanks.
[18:33] <Gwen> I'm ready!
[18:33] <Fiona> Same here.
[18:34] * Chibi-Alex looks down at the rangy fox who's been their companion throughout the entire adventure in the Zone.
[18:34] <Chibi-Alex> Sorry, but you'll have to stay behind. You don't have a sealed environment suit.
[18:34] <Zone Fox> :<
[18:35] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Sooooo!
[18:35] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> What's the plan?
[18:36] * Chibi-AnTil pulls out the map of the whole Jupiter Region.
[18:37] <Chibi-AnTil> I've got an idea of how best to get into the Jupiter Station and hopefully NOT have to deal with either Monolith or Duty.
[18:39] <Chibi-AnTil> The most direct route towards the Jupiter Station would be to head south towards the military checkpoint, then turn east and approach the plant from the cooling pools. But according to the LAC scouts, that area is pretty dangerous. Lots of mutants have been spotted there over the past week.
[18:39] <Chibi-AnTil> Fleshes, Pseudo-giants, Bloodsuckers, and even Chimera. There's also been quite a few Zombies wandering around.
[18:42] <Chibi-AnTil> So! We'll have the Lunar Assault Corps launch an assault from the EASTERN side of the Jupiter Plant, while WE approach from a different route.
[18:44] * Chibi-AnTil outlines on the map, pointing at a road north of Yanov Station that runs parallel to the railroad tracks for a long way, then curves southwards near the artificial stream that ran towards the Chernobyl NPP. The road turns south along with the railroad tracks, continuing to run parallel with it all the way to the outskirts of the Jupiter Plant.
[18:47] <Chibi-AnTil> We'll take the longer route around, bypassing the direct approach to the Plant and hopefully avoiding the worst threats. Then while the Lunar Assault Corps attack the plant from one direction and hopefully draw off any bandits, Monolith, Zombies and mutants, we'll come up from the northern side of the complex.
[18:48] <Chibi-AnTil> That way, we can come up behind any defenders and hit them from behind, or try to slip past them while they're dealing with the Moon Rabbits.
[18:49] <Sheila Marksvov> ...It's not the worst plan I've ever seen.
[18:49] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Hmmm, it's actually workable.
[18:50] <Chibi-Sylvester> What's the total number of Moon-Rabbits here now?
[18:51] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> About 400 now. Everyone's fully equipped and has enough food, medical gear, and ammunition for at least a few big engagements.
[18:58] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> The work you all did in Limansk helped keep the supply route open, although I'm not thrilled that the Rabbits working logistics are making such big sacrifices on their part to help the rest of us.
[18:58] <spiritflame> Reisen Udongein Inaba rolls 3d100 [ 13, 64, 88 ]
[18:59] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> We WERE able to get rid of the Bloodsucker lair in Zaton, so the Loners are happy to help us out a little.
[19:01] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> All of the Moon-Rabbits we sent out to kill that Chimera here in the Jupiter Region haven't come back. This area's still hazardous. Avoiding the southern reaches of this region is probably wise.
[19:03] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Lastly, we weren't able to clear out the Red Forest. Monolith patrols are still operating in there (the ba[BLEEP]rds).
[19:05] <spiritflame> Reisen Udongein Inaba rolls 1d100 [ 8 ]
[19:06] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Some GOOD news though! We managed to send an engineering team into the Vehicle Graveyard and succeeded in scouring the entire place for parts. We now have functional combat vehicles to help us!
[19:07] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> They're not much though - a dozen or so old BTR-80 APCs and some supply trucks. Replacing the weapons on those APCs was damned near impossible, but we scrounged up enough ammo for them to hopefully make a difference in the next few battles.
[19:20] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Overall, we're not doing too badly all things considered.
[19:20] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> We don't have any air support though.
[19:25] * Chibi-Catri readies her sniper rifle. :3
[19:25] <GR>“ Aerial support, eh... what all does our enemy have as far as aerial crafts go?”
[19:26] * Megan O`Cain has been busy prepping for whatever fight is coming
[19:28] <GR>“ If needed, I can go snag a few for our cause.”
[19:29] <Chibi-Catri> We know they had that Kamov in Limansk.
[19:30] <Chibi-Catri> And we've seen Monolith using older model Hinds elsewhere in the Zone. But no helicopters have been seen this deep into the Zone.
[19:31] <Chibi-AnTil> Any other questions so far?
[19:31] <Megan O`Cain> The Kamov took a few energy shots to take down.
[19:32] <GR>“ Hmm... if no aerial craft can be found, either one could be built, or I could have to go airborne.”
[19:33] <Chibi-Alex> We don't know about aerial Anomalies out here though.
[19:33] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm, true.
[19:35] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> There WERE intact helicopters in the Vehicle Graveyard. They were all old Mi-26 heavy transport helicopters. They all looked pretty grimy, but they seemed to be more or less undamaged.
[19:35] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> But that design doesn't have weapons.
[19:38] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> So flying those into Pripyat wouldn't be advisable. Not unless you want to experience being shot down.
[19:39] <Megan O`Cain> Sounds like we're stuck with a ground assault.
[19:39] <Sheila Marksvov> No, I'd rather NOT be shot out of the sky and crash into the earth in a great flaming twisted pile of wreckage. Even if that wreckage WAS of Russian construction.
[19:40] * Megan O`Cain takes a look at the map to get an overall layout
[19:40] <Chibi-AnTil> Does anyone have any suggestions of what else we can do to maximize our chances?
[19:43] *** The map doesn't seem to show any other ways towards the Jupiter Plant, which is located in the corner of the region. There's either the direct assault on it from the west, or the longer route from the north. To the north of the Plant there's the old Quarry, which is filled with numerous toxic Anomalies, and the Bitumin Anomaly as well.
[19:45] <Gwen> Is there any other help we can get?
[19:46] <Megan O`Cain> Unless we call in help from outside, I'm drawing a blank on giving us a better chance.
[19:47] <Chibi-Sylvester> We could launch the attack now, or delay it and try to find some more help.
[19:49] <Megan O`Cain> What help can we look for?
[19:50] <Fiona> Hire Boris!!
[19:50] <Fiona> ...
[19:50] <GR>“ I could call in my younger brother. He might be stationed in Tokyo right now, but we've got our own ways of getting around.”
[19:50] * Fiona , Gwen, Chibi-Alex, and Chibi-Catri all burst out into hysterical laughter.
[19:51] <Megan O`Cain> Boris? Maybe even get Natashia, and Moose & Squirrel?
[19:53] <Sheila Marksvov> Ooooo! Classic examples of fine examples of Soviet art,
[19:53] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Are you drunk, lady?
[19:54] <Sheila Marksvov> NO! I am NOT drunk! I have only drunk ONE full bottle of Vodka this afternoon...
[19:54] <Megan O`Cain> Surely, Monolith has to be running on fumes from the constant replay of my video playing every 30 minutes.
[19:54] <GR>“ (Definitely gonna call in my brother for this one.)”
[19:57] <Sheila Marksvov> And we don't need the help of that Gopnik!
[20:00] <Chibi-AnTil> I'm pretty sure they're upset by now, Meghan. ^__^
[20:01] <Megan O`Cain> I hope so! It'll make things a bit easier to kick their sorry asses! :D
[20:03] <Chibi-AnTil> So what's the consensus? Strike now or delay and get more help? We COULD try to hire more help from the Mercenary Faction.
[20:06] <Megan O`Cain> I say we get as much help as we possibly can. Surely there are others that HATE Monolith.
[20:06] <Chibi-AnTil> And we could try to find Boris and see if he'd help.
[20:08] <GR>“ Very well. I'll get my brother on the line to assist us. If necessary, we could drum up some support from those at the Hotel that could help.”
[20:09] <Chibi-AnTil> All right, I'll try to contact them
[20:17] * Chibi-AnTil contacts the Hotel on the QEC and establishes two-way communication.
[20:24] * Chibi-Catri looks outside and perks her ears up.
[20:24] <Chibi-Catri> Wait...
[20:26] <GR>“ ??”
[20:26] <Megan O`Cain> What, Catri?
[20:27] * Chibi-Catri points to the north! Deep, thick clouds are starting to coalesce into a greater mass resembling a massive thunderstorm.
[20:28] <Megan O`Cain> Uh oh.
[20:29] <GR>“ Oh, that isn't good news.”
[20:29] <Chibi-Catri> I see storm clouds forming north of here. I think we've got an Emission brewing.
[20:32] *** All of the Stalkers in the region immediately start seeking shelter.
[20:41] <Chibi-Alex> Everyone inside! An Emission is starting to form!
[20:43] * Megan O`Cain nods and moves inside, unless she was already indoors to begin with
[20:44] * GR heads indoors, contacting their younger brother and giving him the low down on what's approaching.
[20:47] <Chibi-AnTil> Is everyone safe?
[20:47] <GR>“ All's well on my end.”
[20:49] <Chibi-Catri> Then let's just stay here until the storm's passed.
[20:49] <Megan O`Cain> I'm here.
[20:50] *** Zone-Fox trills as he's picked up and held, pleased that he still has his friends with him for a little while longer.
[20:50] *** Pause here until tomorrow, when we'll pick things up again.
[19:14] *** Meanwhile, back inside the Zone.
[19:15] *** Over a dozen worn-looking BTR-80 APCs start driving down the deteriorated roads towards the Jupiter Plant.
[19:16] <spiritflame> Moon Rabbits rolls 1d100 [ 30 ]
[19:17] * The Moon Rabbits are in luck! The old military outpost at the junction of roads to the northwest of the Jupiter Plant is currently under the control of Stalkers from the Loner faction! They let the Moon-Rabbits through without any problems.
[19:29] * The Moon Rabbits keep approaching the Jupiter Plant. The APCs split into two groups, with half a dozen APCs turning east and driving directly towards the Plant across mostly open land, while the other group keeps driving south on the road that runs through some light woods. The road will link up with another road that runs into the Plant, crossing a bridge that runs over the empty cooling pools that form a shallowly sloping moat of sorts on that side of the Jupiter Plant
[19:31] * The Moon Rabbits ' APCs all converge towards the Jupiter Plant, their occupants loading their weapons and making final checks.
[19:35] *** Meanwhile, outside Yanov Station, the Kits and their friends have made their own final preparations
[19:36] <Fiona> Update from the Moon-Rabbits. They're about to launch their attack on the Jupiter Plant. The military checkpoint is currently held by the Loners and a couple squads of Moon-Rabbits is reinforcing them.
[19:38] <Megan O`Cain> Nice.
[19:43] <Fiona> We can start moving now.
[19:44] <Megan O`Cain> Alright then. I'm ready when you guys are.
[19:48] <Chibi-Catri> You know, with the checkpoint already secure, we COULD head that way, follow up behind the Moon-Rabbits, and let them absorb the worst of the damage. That way we don't waste a lot of time traveling the long way around AND we could actually help them directly.
[19:50] <Megan O`Cain> That's a real good point. In a way, we would be providing some support for them.
[19:52] <Chibi-AnTil> Alex, what do you think?
[19:53] * Chibi-Alex shakes her head. "YOU are in control, brother. The final decision is ultimately yours."
[19:55] * Chibi-AnTil thinks. Meanwhile, Reisen and Sheila have joined the group.
[19:58] <Chibi-AnTil> We'll take the shortcut and go through the checkpoint. We need to get to Pripyat-1 as soon as possible, just in case there's another Emission or Psi-storm.
[19:59] * Megan O`Cain nods
[19:59] <GR>“ All right. Just got a heads-up from my little bro-- the Hotel portal's working. People ought to be on their way here soon.”
[20:01] <Megan O`Cain> Alrighty. Hope they can keep it active for a good while.
[20:05] <Chibi-AnTil> In the meantime, let's move!
[20:06] <GR>“ I'm prepared. Lead the way.”
[20:07] <Megan O`Cain> Let's go!
[20:10] * The Kits and their cousins begin to jog steadily away from Yanov Station, passing by some nearby abandoned two-story apartments surrounding the train station, then turning south onto a road that runs straight up a slight hill.
[20:11] * Reisen Udongein Inaba follows, hefting a belt-fed machine gun over her shoulder.
[20:11] * Megan O`Cain follows the kits as she carries her M16A4
[20:11] * Sheila Marksvov follows as well.
[20:11] * GR follows closely behind, bow and daggers at the ready.
[20:12] * A strange portal OPENS!!!
[20:14] *** Meanwhile, the first group of APCs screech to a halt as they arrive on the wide area of broken asphalt that surrounds most of the Jupiter Plant. The partially open main gates of the Plant are ahead, and Monolith soldiers are already starting to rush out, along with a large group of lumbering, stumbling figures that shuffle forward, firing their weapons.
[20:16] *** The first group returns fire! The machine guns on the APCs top-mounted turrets start firing while the Moon-Rabbits inside start to dismount from side and roof hatches.
[20:17] * Nelius Raoul and his entourage clamber out of the portal. Where might they be in relation to the battle, o Narrator?
[20:18] *** The second group of APCs clear the woods and quickly drive across the bridge (knocking aside a couple wrecked vehicles in the process). A couple APCs run down the slope of the empty cooling pool and quickly cross the smooth, concrete surfaces towards the Jupiter Plant.
[20:18] *** The portal opened right next to the Kits' Group! You're all right alongside them!
[20:18] * Capt. David O`Cain has followed Nelius and his group into the Zone
[20:19] <Nelius Raoul> ...well, this is something. Greetings.
[20:21] <GR>“ Greetings indeed. It took about three months, but finally we meet.”
[20:21] <Chibi-Alex> Hi!
[20:21] <Zotia> Good to see you're all doing well.
[20:21] <Chibi-Sylvester> Hello everyone!
[20:22] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yo.
[20:23] <Monica> So, where's the party?
[20:23] <Megan O`Cain> Hey, guys. Fancy you showing up.
[20:23] * Chibi-AnTil points ahead towards the checkpoint at the very top of the hill.
[20:23] <Janice> You know us--- never one to pass up a golden opportunity to cause some mayhem! :D
[20:24] <Anesha> Whew, looks like the festivities are already underway.
[20:25] *** In the distance you can hear a LOT of machine gun fire!
[20:25] <Megan O`Cain> Sounds like it's begun.
[20:26] <Nelius Raoul> So what's the game plan?
[20:27] *** Rushing along the road, you all see on your left a strange grove of trees. A noxious green mist surrounds the grove, and all of the trees look twisted and malformed in unnatural wats.
[20:27] *** ^ways
[20:28] * Anesha looks rather disturbed by that grove. Given her innate connection to plantlife....
[20:29] * Megan O`Cain tries to get a better view of what's going on
[20:29] *** The grove is very strange. There's clearly something unnatural about it, possibly a reaction to the Zone itself.
[20:30] *** Meghan, you can see that the road is clear all the way up the hill. You can even see a small patrol of Moon-Rabbits coming down the road to meet everyone and keep the road clear.
[20:30] <Anesha> Normally I don't get the heebie-jeebies, but something about that spot makes me want to vomit.
[20:31] * Megan O`Cain motions for everyone to come to her as she sees friendlies up ahead
[20:32] <Gwen> It's an Anomaly zone. The plants there have become mutated and toxic. That mist is actually corrosive.
[20:32] * Capt. David O`Cain goes up to Megan's location
[20:32] <Anesha> Ick.
[20:32] * Janice and Monica head up to Megan's position.
[20:37] <Janice> Ah, friendly faces.
[20:37] <Megan O`Cain> Yep. We got a small patrol coming our way.
[20:38] * The Kits keep jogging steadily along. Despite all of the gear they're carrying, they're maintaining a fairly steady pace.
[20:39] * Zotia and Nelius keep to the rear of the group, mainly to ensure they don't get snuck up on.
[20:41] * The Moon-Rabbit patrol stops some distance away from you all and aim their weapons into the overgrown field of woods and scrub off to the right,
[20:42] * The Moon-Rabbits wave for everyone to pass them while they cover all of your approach.
[20:43] * Megan O`Cain and her brother both walk by the Moon-Rabbits, but keep their weapons ready as they look at the overgrown wooden field
[20:45] *** There are things moving among the thick bushes of those woods. Porcine squeals can be heard, as well as some distant gunfire further in those woods.
[20:45] * GR has their bow at the ready, in case anything does try shambling from that thicket. Meanwhile, Nelius, Anesha and Zotia quickly catch up to everyone else.
[20:47] *** At the top of the hill you can see that the road leads past a small military encampment consisting of a few sturdy buildings surrounded by some damaged fencing. The road runs through it and you can see typical vehicle checkpoints at either end of the small base. Good news though; there are quite a few Stalkers and Moon-Rabbits guarding the place!
[20:49] <Megan O`Cain> Looks like we're good.
[20:50] <Chibi-AnTil> Looks like it!
[20:50] <Chibi-Alex> ^__^
[20:50] <Chibi-Catri> :D
[20:51] * Sheila Marksvov is gasping a little by now!
[20:52] <Anesha> ...you all right there?
[20:52] <Sheila Marksvov> How can those little ones be this energetic?!
[20:52] <Capt. David O`Cain> You'd be surprised, miss.
[20:53] <Sheila Marksvov> I swapped a lot of what I own for the lightest gear I could find and I'm still carrying over 30 kilos of equipment!
[20:53] <Sheila Marksvov> Those little ones have too much stamina!
[20:56] <Capt. David O`Cain> Or they're stronger than they look.
[20:56] <Chibi-Antil> What's the latest news from the front?
[20:57] * Random Stalker waves everyone through the checkpoint at the entrance of the base.
[20:59] * Capt. David O`Cain and his sister walk on through
[21:01] * Nelius Raoul and his entourage head on through, GR bringing up the rear.
[21:02] * Random Moon-Rabbit leads everyone towards a nearby build that used to be a garage. It even has a narrow passage set in the middle of the floor where someone can crawl underneath to perform vehicle maintenance. A narrow metal staircase leads up the side of the building to a barracks room that takes up the second story of the small building.
[21:03] *** Several Moon-Rabbits have been busy setting up a small radio post inside the barracks room, pushing aside some of the beds and moving around a couple of the old desks.
[21:06] <Random Moon-Rabbit> The advance force has engaged the Monolith soldiers that are occupying the Jupiter Plant.
[21:11] <Capt. David O`Cain> How are things looking there?
[21:13] <Random Moon-Rabbit> They're encountering a lot of resistance. There are quite a few Zombies and Monolith is using them as shields against our weapons.
[21:15] <Random Moon-Rabbit> There are some mutants too. The second group reported running into a pair of Pseudo-giants near a large warehouse that's filled with electrical Anomalies. They're right alongside the Concrete Bath Anomaly too. However, they've detected Artifacts inside both Anomaly areas.
[21:15] <Janice> Zombies, eh? Lemme guess-- the general state of the Zone is what reanimates 'em?
[21:16] <Capt. David O`Cain> I see. Which would take priority?
[21:17] <Gwen> Actually no.
[21:17] <Megan O`Cain> It almost sounds like Monolith is t he bigger threat than Zombies. Where are they located?
[21:18] <Gwen> The Zombies are all Stalkers who were either rendered brain-dead by the Brain Scorcher, were caught outside in a Psi-Storm or Emission, or fell prey to certain Mutants or psionic-based Anomalies.
[21:19] <Chibi-AnTil> If we try to get those Artifacts, we'll lose time. We should follow up behind the Moon-Rabbits and try to support them.
[21:20] <Megan O`Cain> Understood.
[21:20] <Random Moon-Rabbit> The Monolith soldiers are all inside the Jupiter Plant. We don't think there are all that many of them, but they're using the buildings as cover and putting up a fierce defense.
[21:20] <Janice> Ah.
[21:22] <Nelius Raoul> Well, with all of us here, it shouldn't take too long to clear out the Monolith forces.
[21:24] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah.
[21:26] <Chibi-Catri> Then we'll move out and immediately join in!
[21:27] <Capt. David O`Cain> Let's do it!
[21:28] *** Pause here for now since it's getting late on my end. We shall continue tomorrow at the same time.
[21:28] <Capt. David O`Cain> (( Okay. ))
[21:29] *** And with that, I bid you all good night. See you tomorrow for Part 2
[19:08] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...or more specifically CONTINUING FROM WHERE LAST NIGHT ENDED.
[19:09] * Gwen kneels down and surveys the area ahead.
[19:10] * Capt. David O`Cain and his sister both attach ACOG/Holo hybrid sights onto their rifles
[19:11] *** The area between the checkpoint and the outskirts of the Jupiter Plant is dotted with scrub bushes and the occasional tree. Far ahead there is the remains of a barb-wire fence and the wooden fence posts that used to hold it up.
[19:12] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hmm...
[19:12] *** The bottoms of the empty cooling pools are partially filled with dirt, dead leaves, occasional discarded junk, and other miscellaneous detritus of the Zone. A few of the APCs rolled across the bottom of the pools in order to avoid direct line-of-sight with the walls of the Jupiter Plant and managed to evade detection by any sentries on the walls.
[19:14] *** Near the base of the western wall, however, is some kind of recessed pool set into the ground filled with some kind of shifting, viscous green sludge that generates a wispy yellow-green mist. That's the Concrete Bath Anomaly.
[19:16] <Megan O`Cain> Which way do you suppose is the best route to go?
[19:20] *** Way up ahead, past the edge of the bridge that connects to the main driveway that leads up to the main entrance, the APCs are pulling into position, firing their machine guns in sporadic bursts while the Moon-Rabbits are all dismounting and moving into position.
[19:21] * Fiona is also scanning the perimeter wall of the Plant.
[19:22] * Chibi-Catri is also scanning the walls, but she's doing so through the scope of her rifle.
[19:23] <Chibi-Catri> I can't see any damage to that wall that we could move through. From what the scouts have said, there's only two ways inside.
[19:23] <Chibi-Catri> The main entrance, and through the administrative building further down.
[19:26] *** You can hear the very distinctive sounds of AK rifles firing inside the Jupiter Plant's walls. Monolith is fighting back pretty fiercely.
[19:26] <Megan O`Cain> Shall we move in?
[19:28] <Chibi-AnTil> Definitely.
[19:28] <Chibi-AnTil> Main entrance. We'll follow in behind the Moon-Rabbits and lend them what support we can.
[19:29] <Sheila Marksvov> I like! Down the middle and UP YOURS, MONOLITH!
[19:29] * Megan O`Cain and her brother both nod
[19:30] <Capt. David O`Cain> Main entrance it is to help the LDC.
[19:32] * The Kits and their cousins rush across the field towards the APCs. It's a good several hundred meters to get there! Meanwhile, the weather has undergone a rapid and unexpected change, going from partly cloudy to deeply overcast, the sun reduced to a dull reddish glow trickling through the gloom.
[19:33] <spiritflame> ~ rolls 1d100 [ 66 ]
[19:33] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan follow closely
[19:36] *** An RPG is fired at one of the Moon-Rabbit APCs, but the warhead hits at a steep angle and deflects off of the angled steel plating, detonating a half-second AFTER it hits. The explosion actually occurs a few meters away from the vehicle, rattling its occupants severely, but not fatally.
[19:38] *** You all soon reach the main entrance. The steel doors have been pushed open by one of the leading APCs, which has driven through into a large open area and parked in the middle of a road that runs through the outskirts of the Plant.
[19:41] * The Moon-Rabbits have begun their assault, advancing en mass on either side of the road, moving alongside the buildings to either side. The road ahead is littered with strewn debris and obscured by tall weeds and overgrown bushes growing up in places through the broken asphalt and concrete. Even the road's surface is uneven due to subsidence.
[19:44] * Several Moon-Rabbits are being carried back from the front line of the advance, wounded and bleeding badly. Monolith soldiers are hiding inside the buildings ahead and behind low walls and pylons. The withering fire they're giving in return is taking its toll, and some of them are tossing grenades and even Molotov c[BLEEP]ktails.
[19:46] * Gwen attempts to help some of the wounded Moon-Rabbits.
[19:46] * Capt. David O`Cain seeks cover, and takes aim with an M203 under-barrel grenade launcher
[19:47] * Megan O`Cain aims her M16A4 at on of the buildings Monolith soldiers are hiding in
[19:47] * Nelius Raoul and his forces move in. Nelius and Zotia take to the skies to rain down magical hell upon the Monolith forces. Meanwhile, Janice and GR team up to use icy shellings against the enemy. Anesha gets to work on manipulating the local plantlife to aid them, whilst Monica prepares to zip in and show off her patented kicks, the kinds said to instantly turn a victim's bones into dust.
[19:47] <Chibi-Catri> I need some elevation!
[19:49] *** Nelius and Zotia, from your position in the skies you can see something approaching from the northeast - TWO Mi-24 Hind gunship helicopters!
[19:49] <Nelius Raoul> ♦ Got two Hinds inbound.
[19:49] * Capt. David O`Cain fires a Hellhound 40mm grenade at a building of Monolith troops from the M203
[19:49] *** David, roll 1d100 please.
[19:49] * Zotia swoops down to grab Catri and help get her elevated.
[19:50] <Chibi-Catri> :D
[19:51] <spiritflame> Capt. David O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 53 ]
[19:51] <Zotia> Ready?
[19:51] *** David, your grenade is a near miss that manages to mangle a couple of Monolith troops, but they're all still holding firm.
[19:52] * Megan O`Cain starts firing tungsten .300 AAC Blackout rounds at the same building David fired at
[19:53] * Armored Woman is treating anyone who is injured
[19:53] *** Zotia, there's a couple of steady places you could bring Catriona - the top of a covered bridge that spans across the street and connects two different buildings, or the top of the administrative building (which is a good six stories high).
[19:53] *** Armored Woman, please roll 1d100 as well
[19:54] <Zotia> Hm... would the bridge work for you, Catri?
[19:55] <Chibi-Catri> Should be good for me!
[19:55] * Chibi-AnTil and Chibi-Alex are both trying to coordinate with the Moon-Rabbits.
[19:57] *** EVERYONE...that bridge gives some fair cover and a decent elevated position over the street. A few Moon-Rabbits up in there with heavy weapons might help push back the Monolith forces.
[19:57] * Zotia nods, and quickly flies over to that bridge. Just indicate where you want Catri set, and it shall be done.
[19:57] * Megan O`Cain keeps firing her rifle as David aims again with another Hellhound grenade ready
[19:58] * Chibi-Catri points down at the roof, right where it connects with the wall of a laboratory building.
[19:59] * Zotia nods in affirmation, and touches down there.
[19:59] *** The Hind helicopters are steadily approaching. No one's heard them over the sounds of the battle yet though.
[20:00] * Janice and GR aim their bows up high, and with a release send out modified arrows. When these ones hit, an arctic chill will sweep over the enemy...... followed by a kaboom that even Megumin would be proud of!
[20:01] <Nelius Raoul> (Don't think they heard me about the Hinds.... shame I can't tell from this distance if they're enemies or not.)
[20:01] <spiritflame> Armored Woman rolls 1d100 [ 17 ]
[20:02] * Capt. David O`Cain fires another Hellhound grenade at the building of Monolith troops he and Megan are firing at
[20:02] *** The Monolith forces retreat back further down the street, taking up new positions at a junction in the street where it turns south and leads to the inner section of the Plant. The main part of the Jupiter Plant is taken up by a single massive two-story building that looks like a huge warehouse.
[20:03] * Anesha works her ability to communicate with and utilize plantlife, in order to get a better idea of what areas would be best to strike at. Monica, in the meanwhile, is a blonde blur of fur and fury! Methinks those Soliders are going to be in traction for..... pretty much ever!
[20:03] *** Armored Girl...you quickly and effectively stabilize almost ALL of the wounded Moon-Rabbits. All of them will make fully recoveries eventually, and several of them are healed quickly enough that they'll be able to re-enter this battle.
[20:05] *** Anesha, you're able to quickly determine where ALL of the Monolith forces are! Still, communicating with the plant-life here is...unnerving. Like biting aluminum foil. All of the plants in the Zone have been tainted and polluted.
[20:06] *** Nelius, if those helicopters are coming from the northeast, that means they came from either Pripyat or the Chernobyl NPP. Almost certainly Monolith!
[20:06] *** David, Janice, GR, and Monica, all of you please roll 1d100
[20:07] * Chibi-Catri gets into position and starts firing!
[20:07] <spiritflame> Capt. David O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 71 ]
[20:08] * Megan O`Cain is still firing tungsten rounds at the same building David is shooting the Hellhounds into
[20:08] *** Meghan, you see a pair of large, bulky figures slowly approaching from the Monolith's lines. RATNIK SUITS!!!
[20:10] <Anesha> (Ugh... this tainted place is beyond gut-churning. Once we get this place stable I'm going to help seriously un-f[BLEEP]k this area....)
[20:10] *** And they're both carrying ballistic shields in front of them with short-barreled, belt-fed machines firing from notches in the upper edges of their shields.
[20:10] <spiritflame> Janice rolls 1d100 [ 61 ]
[20:10] <spiritflame> GR rolls 1d100 [ 65 ]
[20:11] <spiritflame> Monica rolls 1d100 [ 38 ]
[20:11] <Nelius Raoul> (Well damn, that cast the die.)
[20:11] <spiritflame> Chibi-Catri rolls 1d100 [ 73 ]
[20:11] * Nelius Raoul switches out his usual gun for something with a bit more punch to it. The Amalgam Flame will suffice--- time to bring those choppers down!
[20:12] * Megan O`Cain quickly directs David's attention from the building to the Ratnicks after he's fired the grenade
[20:12] * Chibi-Catri shoots a Monolith soldier right in the head as he pulls the pin on a grenade, dropping him AND the now-armed grenade! It explodes a few seconds later, taking out several other nearby Monolith!
[20:13] *** Monica SMASHES like the Hulk in the "Avengers" movie! You even take the time to grab one particularly-annoying Monolith soldier that tried to shoot at Sylvester!
[20:14] *** Feel free to describe in detail what you do to that Monolith soldier!
[20:14] *** GR, you rip the hell out of several more Monolith. Janice also manages to take down a few more.
[20:14] * Monica gives a grin most unsettling....... before using that solider as a bludgeon against the other soldiers. She'll beat a motherf[BLEEP]ker with ANOTHER MOTHERF[BLEEP]KER!!
[20:16] *** David, you and Megan concentrate fire on the Ratniks. Their ballistic shields are absorbing a HUGE amount of damage, but they're both forced to halt their advance and even fall back a step or two.
[20:17] *** Nelius, the Hinds are on final approach, rising up over the walls and slowly moving into position to strafe the whole length of the street with their chainguns.
[20:18] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan put away their rifles, and switch to their arm cannons to fire at the Ratniks
[20:18] * Chibi-Sylvester , Chibi-Alex, and Fiona are in the fight too, doing their part to take down the Monolith soldiers.
[20:20] * Nelius Raoul has his gun loaded, and so fires at the mechanisms keeping the Hinds aloft -- more specifically, their propellers. Time to give these fools a taste of Netherworld Tech!
[20:20] * Zotia collabs with Anesha to pick off stragglers here and there.
[20:21] *** Nelius, roll 1d100!
[20:24] <spiritflame> Nelius Raoul rolls 1d100 [ 24 ]
[20:24] * Sheila Marksvov joins a random Moon-Rabbit in preparing a couple of SA-14 Grail SAMs!
[20:26] *** Nelius, your attacks strike both of the Hinds. One of them takes a hit in its engines, blasting through the armor and sending the helicopter spiraling out of the air to crash through the roof of the central building of the Jupiter Plant.
[20:27] *** The second attack deflects off of the reinforced underside armor of the other Hind. It's still in the fight.
[20:28] <Sheila Marksvov> Give us a few seconds!
[20:28] * Sheila Marksvov rushes into the center of the street to get a clear shot at the other Hind.
[20:29] * The Ratniks see Sheila and her assistant and prepare to take aim at them both!
[20:29] * Janice and GR decide to let the Ratniks have a taste of the Frozen Megumin Special! Time for them to chill out permanently.
[20:30] <Chibi-AnTil> Concentrate fire on those power armored soldiers!
[20:32] *** David, where are you aiming that Hellhound grenade?
[20:34] * Capt. David O`Cain isn't using the grenade launcher. He and Megan have armed their arm cannons to fire at the Ratniks.
[20:36] <spiritflame> Ratniks rolls 1d100 [ 15 ]
[20:40] *** The Ratniks are both forced to drop to their knees, struggling to keep their balance as their shields are barely holding up against the barrage of fire they're absorbing.
[20:41] *** They're also covered in an icy rime, but they seem to be managing to stay in the fight. The environmental systems of their suits seems to be fairly durable.
[20:42] *** The last Hind gunship prepares to fire!
[20:42] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Take that helicopter out!!!
[20:43] * Nelius Raoul takes aim at the Hind and fires! He'll either tear a hole through it with this new ammo, or at least rip off its propellers!
[20:44] *** Roll 1d100!
[20:44] <spiritflame> Nelius Raoul rolls 1d100 [ 58 ]
[20:47] *** Your shot isn't completely accurate, Nelius. Instead of hitting the propellers, it hits low and punches STRAIGHT through the armorglass of the canopy, hitting both the pilot and copilot! DESCRIBE!!
[20:48] * Chibi-Sylvester and Reisen both charge forward and throw grenades at the prone Ratnik soldiers!!
[20:54] * Nelius Raoul ends up splattering the pilot and co-pilot all over the insides of the Hind! Who knew people could have that much meat and blood within 'em? Still, if they're dead, then where is that Hind going?
[20:55] *** The Hind takes a rapid nose-dive right down on top of the stricken power-armored Monolith troops!!
[20:56] <Nelius Raoul> Sweet.
[20:58] *** The last of the Monolith forces have been defeated! The Jupiter Plant is now under your full command!
[20:59] <Capt. David O`Cain> Neener neener neener! We whooped your asses, Monolith!
[20:59] <Megan O`Cain> This place is now ours!
[21:00] <Chibi-Sylvester> :D
[21:00] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Yeesssssssssssss~!
[21:04] <Chibi-AnTil> The way to Pripyat-1 is now open. But we need to make a new decision.
[21:05] <Chibi-AnTil> We can either keep the Lunar Assault Corps here and resupply, or advance further into Pripyat itself.
[21:06] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm. Given the situation, perhaps it's best we stay and resupply. We ought to be fresh for the next advance.
[21:06] <Capt. David O`Cain> That, and the LAC could use a few more hands in their recovery.
[21:07] <Chibi-AnTil> There's a road that leads directly into the outskirts of Pripyat from here, but that area's been heavily fortified by Monolith.
[21:07] <Nelius Raoul> Good idea. I'm betting that with this area secured, Morimoto's going to be even more livid than a Baciel denied its drink.
[21:08] <Capt. David O`Cain> Baciel?
[21:09] <Chibi-AnTil> We can either let them resupply, but that would take time and give Monolith an opportunity to retaliate. But if we send in the LAC to attack, that might draw away Monolith forces from the Underpass and give us a chance to get through with fewer problems.
[21:09] <Chibi-AnTil> Plus it might keep them reeling.
[21:10] <Chibi-AnTil> What do you all think we should do?
[21:11] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan speak to each quietly in Selenite about the situation
[21:11] * Nelius Raoul looks over to David. "A kind of technological demon known for loving good fights and good alcohol. They tend to be a rowdy bunch."
[21:13] * Chibi-Alex and Chibi-Catri are both dancing on the body of one of the Ratniks.
[21:13] <Capt. David O`Cain> I see.
[21:13] * Anesha is mentally calculating how long it'd take to help this area be rid of the mutations and other maladies that riddle the land.
[21:14] <Zotia> How are the LAC doing, by the way?
[21:14] <Megan O`Cain> How much of the Moon-Rabbits can we send out while keeping the plant occupied? If we can spare that much, we can move up.
[21:15] *** Anesha, you'd probably have to seal whatever dimensional rifts are at the heart of the Zone, as well as clean up ALL of the mess of the original Chernobyl explosion. This place is a cesspool
[21:16] <Chibi-Sylvester> I think the Moon-Rabbits took a fair amount of injuries and casualties, but they expended a lot of supplies to get this far.
[21:17] <Anesha> (Yeah, I'm definitely going to call in some friends for when that particular task comes to light.)
[21:18] <Chibi-AnTil> We'd probably have to send in another full assault force to keep Monolith off of our tails for a while.
[21:18] <Megan O`Cain> Phooey. Maybe it's best they stay back while we move ahead.
[21:19] <Chibi-AnTil> A platoon or two can hold the Jupiter Plant for now, and the resupply trucks can turn the checkpoint into a depot.
[21:22] <Chibi-AnTil> So...have the Moon-Rabbits press ahead into Pripyat as a diversion or stay here and resupply for later?
[21:24] * Megan O`Cain and David both kneel down a la MLB catchers as they ponder
[21:27] <Chibi-AnTil> Hmmm...
[21:27] <Chibi-AnTil> We want to get through Pripyat-1 with as few problems as possible.
[21:28] <Chibi-AnTil> Reisen?
[21:28] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Yeah?
[21:29] <Chibi-AnTil> Tell the LAC to continue the attack into Pripyat's outskirts. Attack Monolith's defenses and create a distraction for us.
[21:32] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> I don't think they'll be able to cause much damage against them...
[21:33] <Chibi-AnTil> They don't need to. They just need to distract them enough that they reinforce the area the LAC is attacking. Hopefully that will draw away their patrols and give us better chances of getting through the Underpass.
[21:34] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> They haven't had time to resupply though...
[21:34] <Chibi-AnTil> I know, Reisen!
[21:35] <Chibi-AnTil> But we need the diversion and we need to keep Morimoto distracted.
[21:36] * Chibi-AnTil looks a little sad though. He doesn't want to see any more Moon-Rabbits get hurt.
[21:36] <GR>“ .....hold just a moment.”
[21:37] <Chibi-AnTil> Hmmm?
[21:37] * GR taps something on the side of their helmet. (Little bro-- you're up!)
[21:38] * GR steps back as something yawns into existence..... it looks like a rift, but it's far too clean for one.
[21:39] <Capt. David O`Cain> Eh?
[21:39] * From within that rift, out walks this character.
[21:39] <MR>“ Hello everyone.”
[21:39] <The Kits> O__O O__O O__O O__O
[21:40] <MR>“ My elder sister here tells me you might be in need some extra supplies.”
[21:40] * Sheila Marksvov blinks and takes a good hard look at the bottle of vodka she just took a sip from.
[21:40] <Chibi-AnTil> Uhhh, yes. We could use some help with that.
[21:41] * Megan O`Cain and David open up a dimensional closet, and begin to pull out medium-sized military crate full of supplies, "To add to the pot."
[21:41] <MR>“ Well then, good thing we prepared.”
[21:42] * MR reaches back through the rift, and withdraws a crate. "I believe these should help --- food, ammo, armor, and a little something of our own design."
[21:42] *** The Moon-Rabbits quickly begin gathering up and redistributing all of the supplies that have been delivered so far. They especially need ammunition and replacement armor.
[21:43] <Chibi-Alex> What is it?
[21:43] <GR>“ That'll be a surprise♫”
[21:44] <Megan O`Cain> Heh. Seems like we had the same idea.
[21:45] <Chibi-AnTil> Then we can do both options! Reinforce the Lunar Assault Corps AND launch a diversion!
[21:45] <Chibi-AnTil> Then I also have a third request.
[21:46] <Megan O`Cain> What's up, Antil?
[21:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah, whatcha got in mind?
[21:46] <Chibi-AnTil> Can any of you go into the Red Forest and clear out or chase away as many Monolith patrols and mutants as you can?
[21:47] <Chibi-AnTil> If you can do that, then the roads will be secure enough to actually bring in more vehicles. Possibly even salvaged heavy armor!
[21:48] <Monica> I see. Get everything nice and secured to ensure Morimoto has nowhere left to turn?
[21:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> I like it!
[21:49] <Fiona> That's right! There are a couple old tanks inside Freedom's base at the Military Warehouses outside of Rostov! And a few more APCs in the underground garage near Limansk!
[21:49] <Janice> I like where this is heading!
[21:50] <Fiona> Plus the LAC was able to repair some of their light tanks from the dropzone massacres.
[21:51] <Chibi-Sylvester> If we can get the roads open, we can start moving them here. We already know where most of the Anomalies are along the routes. It'd be easy to avoid them.
[21:52] <GR>“ Excellent. Nice as this suit's been, it's starting to get a little uncomfortable --- the sooner we get this taken care of, the better.”
[21:52] <Chibi-AnTil> Then please make it so! =^ ^=
[21:53] *** And with that, let's pause here until Monday. Unless you want to take care of some of the simpler details tomorrow evening as well?
[21:53] <MR>“ Very well.”
[21:55] <Nelius Raoul> (( We'll be waiting~ ))
[21:57] *** All right then. Good night to you all and thank you for hanging in there. I hope you all had fun tonight.

[19:37] * Phobos is being held by the throat and lifted off her ground....
[19:37] <Phobos> *the ground
[19:38] * Deimos struggles to get off the ground..she's been badly injured ><
[19:38] * Andy Dioli tranforms "Neo Uranus Power!"
[19:38] * Andy Dioli is now known as Neo Sailor Uranus
[19:38] * Neo Sailor Quinox slides sideways
[19:38] <Neo Sailor Quinox> I..I got a call and...wh..what!?
[19:39] * A woman is holding Phobos by the neck.....she's dressed in some sort of ornate old fashion dress........
[19:39] * Neo Sailor Uranus throws multible swords at this woman
[19:41] * A woman spins...holding phobos in the path of the blades!
[19:41] <Neo Sailor Quinox> URANUS!
[19:42] *** the woman by the way didn't so much spin around...as turned her entire upper half
[19:43] <Deimos> SISTER!!
[19:44] * Phobos is HIT by several of the blades!
[19:44] <Neo Sailor Uranus> PHobos!
[19:45] <Woman> ....this one is not a chosen....
[19:45] <Woman> shame...
[19:45] * Woman turns her head in a swivling motion...her eyes rotating oddly...
[19:45] * Woman seems to be almost like a life sized marrionate
[19:46] * Neo Sailor Uranus dashes in, createing a new pair of swords as he dashes, entering Melee range.
[19:49] <Neo Sailor Quinox> (( pausing for a second..have to help my dad ))
[20:02] * Woman just tosses Phobos towards Uranus
[20:02] * Neo Sailor Quinox rushes to help catch her O_O
[20:04] * Neo Sailor Uranus drops the weapons and catches her.
[20:04] <Woman> still...I cannot have you two running around...
[20:05] <Woman> ARISE!
[20:05] <Woman> MY TULPA!!!
[20:05] * Phobos 's eyes suddenly turn black..as a strange mist issues from her nose and mouth and rises up
[20:05] <Woman> Arise! Garudaoh!
[20:08] <Neo Sailor Uranus> Phobos?
[20:10] *** the mist forms itself into a green skinned humanoid woman in armor with wings
[20:10] <Garudaoh> GAAAARRRRRUUU
[20:10] *** Garudaoh has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:10] <+luna_P> Evening, Garudaoh
[20:10] <+luna_P> Welcome to Suburban Senshi: Awesome Overloaded, please try again later
[20:10] * Phobos is completely passed out
[20:10] <Neo Sailor Quinox> Phobos..phobos wake up!
[20:10] * Woman steps backwards.....and fades away
[20:10] *** Woman has left #suburbansenshi3
[20:11] <Neo Sailor Uranus> I'll get her inside. You hold it off, I'll be right back.
[20:11] <Neo Sailor Quinox> but...but
[20:12] * Garudaoh grins..her eyes glowing
[20:12] <Neo Sailor Uranus> I can't fight with her in my Arms Q.
[20:13] * Neo Sailor Quinox pauses and then grabs phobos..having trouble with her and pulls her out of the way
[20:14] * Garudaoh gives a screech and charges towards Uranus!
[20:15] <Neo Sailor Uranus> ...Alright then.
[20:15] * Neo Sailor Uranus summons a sword and throws it at the monster as it charges
[20:15] * Garudaoh turns..and slaps the sword away with one of her wings
[20:17] * Garudaoh tries to bring a taloned hand down on Uranus!
[20:18] * Neo Sailor Uranus creates a sword to block it.
[20:20] * Garudaoh grins at Uranus, narrowing it's eyes at him
[20:21] * Garudaoh tries to use her free hand to try and slash uranus across the chest
[20:21] * Neo Sailor Uranus is doing much the same with his other hand, and slashes at the hand with a sword.
[20:23] * Garudaoh catches the other sword with her hand...and then suddenly bursts into flight, trying to slam Uranus into part of the shrine
[20:25] * Neo Sailor Quinox runs towards the monster!
[20:25] <Neo Sailor Quinox> URANUS!
[20:28] * Neo Sailor Uranus is slammed into the wall
[20:29] * Neo Sailor Quinox runs forward to try and help!
[20:31] <Neo Sailor Uranus> FALSE SWORD, BLASTER!
[20:33] *** scene paused
[21:32] * Garudaioh is hit in the face by it.....and doesn't even wince...
[21:34] * Neo Sailor Uranus 's sword crumbles to dust, and he pants "Well s[BLEEP]t...:
[21:36] * Garudaioh goes to slash..but Quinox gets in the way and takes the hit instead!
[21:36] <Neo Sailor Quinox> ><
[21:36] * Neo Sailor Quinox crumbles backwards against uranus
[21:38] * Neo Sailor Uranus catchs her.
[21:40] <Neo Sailor Uranus> (( Brb real quick ))
[21:46] <Neo Sailor Uranus> (( Back ))
[21:46] <Neo Sailor Uranus> You alright Q?
[21:46] * Neo Sailor Quinox is bleeding from the scatch
[21:48] <Neo Sailor Uranus> She's shrugging off everything I throw at her...
[21:53] * Garudaioh approches them slowly....wings starting to glow as if preparing to do a final attack
[21:53] <Neo Sailor Uranus> ...You got a plan?
[21:56] <Neo Sailor Quinox> I...I don't...
[21:57] * Neo Sailor Quinox is bleeding badly from her wound
[21:57] <Neo Sailor Uranus> You got enoough energy for a link Tech?
[21:58] <Neo Sailor Quinox> I..I think..so
[21:59] * Neo Sailor Quinox grabs uranus's hand
[22:02] * Neo Sailor Uranus creates dozen upon dozens of swords, fliging them into the air. "Alright. Your turn
[22:04] * Neo Sailor Quinox summons as much energy as she can to create a tornado around the weapons
[22:07] <Neo Sailor Uranus> Air Arsenal Strike!
[22:09] * Garudaioh is struck by the multiple attacks!
[22:11] * Garudaioh is cracked..cut..hurt...but is STILL standing..and looks absolytly PISSED
[22:11] <Neo Sailor Uranus> F[BLEEP]k... She's still standing, and we're tapped out.
[22:13] * Garudaioh growls...approuching them both
[22:14] * Neo Sailor Uranus starts createing a sheild
[22:18] * Neo Sailor Quinox passes out from blood loss
[22:18] * Neo Sailor Uranus raises the sheild to defend him and Q
[22:24] * Garudaioh raises her wings to strike them down...
[22:26] <-> - BLACK MOON SLASH -
[22:26] * Neo Sailor Uranus puts the rest of his energy into the sheild
[22:26] *** a purple black energy slash flies outward....and tries to hit Garudaioh...who takes to the air in surprise
[22:30] * Neo Sailor Uranus looks twords the source of the attack, barely able to keep standing
[22:30] * Sailor Black Moon tosses aside her attack card
[22:30] * Sailor Black Moon starts to pull out a special attack card
[22:32] * Garudaioh growls..and with a screech takes off int othe sky..flying away
[22:32] *** Garudaioh has left #suburbansenshi3 (to fight another day)
[22:33] <Neo Sailor Uranus> ...Thank you
[22:33] * Neo Sailor Uranus passes out, half embeded in the wall and holding the bleeding Q
[22:36] * Sailor Black Moon grimaces...looking at Uranus, Q and the passed out mars sisters
[22:44] * Neo Sailor Uranus looks at Sailor Black Moon.
[22:44] *** Sailor Black Moon is a sailor senshi with a black sailor fuku, dark purple collar and blood red bow shapped like a jagged butterfly. She is the senshi of the Black Moon Clan.
Her image Song is: .
She is Level 1.
[22:48] * Sailor Black Moon pulls out another card...with a picture of Dumble on it
[22:49] * Sailor Black Moon presses an Effect card on the phone, then presses the Dumble card onto it..
[22:49] * Sailor Black Moon 's arms glow...as she walks over and picks up each senshi like they were nothing
[22:51] * Sailor Black Moon tosses them into Rei's room at the shrine
[22:54] *** Neo Sailor Uranus has left #suburbansenshi3 (Passed out)
[22:54] *** Neo Sailor Quinox has left #suburbansenshi3 (passed out)
[22:55] *** Phobos and Deimos has left #suburbansenshi3 (out cold)
[22:56] *** Sailor Black Moon has left #suburbansenshi3 (*leaves*)
[18:08] *** Meanwhile, inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone...
[18:09] * Chibi-Alex observes and smiles as the Moon-Rabbits get organized more and more. The whole Jupiter Plant has been abuzz with activity for a full day now, and the resupply has gone better than expected.
[18:11] * Nelius Raoul and his people have been convening, mostly laying out plans and such for the coming attack. At the same time, Nelius is getting in touch with Thirza and everyone back home, mostly to check on things and ensure all has been well.
[18:12] * Chibi-Alex is watching from the upper story of the main admin building. Looking down into the entry courtyard and the primary avenue leading into the Plant from the main entrance, there are numerous UAZ jeeps that have been reclaimed from the Zone that are now undergoing repairs and restoration. Say what you want about Soviet vehicle construction, but these things are remarkably easy to restore.
[18:14] * GR and MR are putting a few things of their own together as well.
[18:17] * Fiona pops up next to Alex, along with Zone-Fox.
[18:17] <Fiona> Hi!
[18:17] <Zone-Fox> ^__^
[18:17] <Chibi-Alex> Come to check up on me?
[18:20] <Fiona> Partly.
[18:22] <Fiona> The vehicle restoration is going well. We've now got eight jeeps, four trucks, and a total of ten BTR-80 APCs. The Moon-Rabbits are working on adding some improvised armor to the trucks and jeeps right now. It won't be much though. The steel plate available here in the Zone is terrible,
[18:24] <Chibi-Alex> Crappy selection?
[18:26] <Fiona> More like the corrosive environment. You must have noticed it by now. This place is awful on everything manufactured. Things just suffer from wear and tear far more than they should. Look what happened to the gauss carbine we had. The mag-rails shorted out in a way they shouldn't have.
[18:28] <GR>“ No doubt it's due to all this radiation, and whatever else has been going on here.”
[18:29] <Fiona> The metal plates the Moon-Rabbits are using for applique armor aren't that old. They were inside a sealed container here in the main warehouse building, and looking at them they ARE sheets and plates of Rolled Homogeneous Armor-grade.
[18:30] <Fiona> But they've all lost tensile strength. Like they were exposed to salt water corrosion or something.
[18:30] <Chibi-Alex> Are they still good for armor?
[18:31] <Fiona> Yeah. It just won't be as effective as it should be. The Moon-Rabbits know about it, but they're still going ahead with it.
[18:34] *** Down below, you can all see some Moon-Rabbits using blowtorches and welders to cut and affix sheets of 1/4" steel plate to the sides, front, and rear of the UAZs. The windshields are being replaced with angled steel plates with narrow vision slits, there aren't any tops, and all of the jeeps are being fitted with pintle-mounted machine guns OR RPGs.
[18:35] <MR>“ Quite the interesting construction layout they're using.”
[18:40] <Fiona> They're improvising as best they can.
[18:40] <Chibi-Alex> I hope AnTil gets back here soon.
[18:45] <Chibi-Alex> He left with one of the supply groups back to Limansk early this morning.
[18:50] *** Elsewhere, Catriona is on the walls with the other spotters, Sylvester is foraging for Artifacts with Sheila, and Gwen is helping with the injured.
[18:54] <Chibi-Alex> What's the word on the other vehicles everyone was talking about?
[18:54] * Fiona smiles and adjusts her glasses. "Good!"
[19:05] <Fiona> Last I heard, they've actually gotten those old tanks functional!
[19:05] <Fiona> They're only T-62s though.
[19:13] <Chibi-Alex> I don't think I'm familiar with those. ^__^;
[19:13] <Fiona> >:/
[19:18] <Fiona> The T-62 is an older model of Soviet tank from the 1960s. They're woefully obsolete by Current Year's standards, but are still used by some reserve units and other countries like China and North Korea.
[19:24] <Fiona> In fact, the most recent model of the T-62 design came out in 1989 with the T-62MV-1 which featured improved engines, better materials for the armor, and better cannon-launched AT missiles.
[19:25] <Fiona> They were still pretty bad compared to modern Western tanks, but they were cheap and easy to produce, which made them great for the Soviet's reservist units.
[19:27] <Fiona> The Chinese and North Koreans use a lot of locally-made versions of the design in their own military forces too.
[19:28] <Chibi-Alex> I don't even know what HALF of that meant. Are they any good for us?
[19:28] <Fiona> ^__^;;
[19:43] <Chibi-Alex> MR? How are you doing?
[19:43] <Capt. David O`Cain> Depends on who uses them. If we have them, good for us. If Monolith does, that's no bueno. That sum it up for you, Alex?
[19:52] <Chibi-Alex> If they can be relocated here, they may be of use.
[19:52] <MR>“ I'm doing all right. What might you wish to know?”
[19:52] * Capt. David O`Cain nods while Megan is checking over supplies
[19:53] <Chibi-Alex> How is the Red Forest looking?
[19:55] * Armored Woman sits away from the others, checking over her own gear
[19:57] *** The supply situation looks reasonably good. Food is sufficient; not great, but there's enough to go around for everyone if no one gets gluttonous.
[19:57] <MR>“ Right now, it's going a bit slowly.”
[19:58] *** Ammunition is better, and there's enough fuel for the vehicles for them all to travel for at least a day or two.
[20:00] *** For life inside the Zone, having enough fuel, ammunition, spare parts, and supplies for the next few days is pretty much as good as it gets. The logistical situation here would be almost unheard of back in the MKA. The Moon-Rabbits are literally operating on a shoestring budget supplemented by scavenging in what amounts to a post-apocalyptic economy.
[20:01] <Megan O`Cain> Supplies seem to be pretty good. Got plenty of ammo, enough fuel for the vehicles to go for at most two days worth, and food will be fine as long we don't eat too much.
[20:05] * Armored Woman adjusts her gauntlet
[20:07] <Chibi-Alex> That's not a bad thing.
[20:08] <Megan O`Cain> Nope. Then again, I haven't seen this within the MKA, MKM, and MKN.
[20:09] <Fiona> We did manage to salvage some of the weapons and ammo from those crashed Hinds, so that puts us all in a slightly better position. Both of those helicopters were in very good condition construction-wise. From what I could tell, neither of them had any serious signs of deterioration.
[20:10] <Megan O`Cain> Interesting.
[20:17] <Fiona> So they were either very well maintained or recently brought into the Zone.
[20:19] <Megan O`Cain> Hmm.
[20:21] <Fiona> So...where the heck is Monolith getting all of this stuff?
[20:24] <Megan O`Cain> If I were to venture a guess, an outside source is my best guess. My prediction? Whatever's left of the Alliance seeing that Leona's running things.
[20:31] <Chibi-Alex> But not one's seen any shipments coming into the Zone like that. The Anomalies make aerial transport really tough to do.
[20:32] <Chibi-Alex> And lots of ground transports would attract bandits and other Stalkers like Catriona to S'mores.
[20:34] <MR>“ Mayhaps they have an underground supply network? It would allow them to bypass both the anomalies and the Stalkers.”
[20:36] <Megan O`Cain> That's a possibility.
[20:36] <Chibi-Alex> Who knows. If they really ARE Alliance survivors, maybe they brought a nano-forge with them?
[20:37] <Megan O`Cain> Really?
[20:38] <Fiona> THAT would be concerning.
[20:39] <Capt. David O`Cain> How would they have gotten it here in the first place?
[20:42] <Fiona> If they brought it here on a foundry ship.
[20:43] <Fiona> Or maybe one of their Phoenix-class baseships survived?
[20:47] <Fiona> I know from my voidship training that all of the Alliance's mobile carrier-bases incorporated nano-factories that enabled them to produce munitions and pre-fabricated structures really quickly.
[20:53] * Random Moon-Rabbit rushes into the room!
[20:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hmm.
[20:54] <Random Moon-Rabbit> Movement! The scouts have detected movement!
[20:54] <Capt. David O`Cain> Eh? Where?
[20:58] <Random Moon-Rabbit> From Pripyat! We've been seeing lots and lots of people moving and heard what sounds like a lot of heavy engine noise coming from deeper within the urban area and getting louder.
[20:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> Possible counterstrike?
[21:02] <Random Moon-Rabbit> Maybe!
[21:03] <Random Moon-Rabbit> Lots of infantry for sure. We can't tell exactly what kind of vehicles are coming, but we can make out the noise of high-power turbine engines. The kind tanks normally have.
[21:04] <Megan O`Cain> Sounds like a newer model of tank like an Abrams.
[21:07] <Chibi-Alex> How long?!
[21:08] <Random Moon-Rabbit> An hour? Maybe less?
[21:10] <Chibi-Alex> Sound the alert and get ready for an attack!!!
[21:10] <Chibi-Alex> Do we have time to get to the Pripyat-1 Underpass entrance?
[21:10] <Fiona> I don't know! I'll find out!
[21:15] *** The Moon-Rabbits all immediately start rushing to get their modifications of the vehicles done and gather up their weapons.
[21:16] *** Pause here for now. We'll pick things up again tomorrow as the Endgame has now officially begun!
[21:16] <Megan O`Cain> (( Okay. ))
