<FireFly_9> Because living is to smelling as smelling is to life.
welcome to #suburbansenshi3
[19:44] *** Meanwhile, back on Planeta del Agua...
[19:45] *** Eisenblut continues to push forward slowly, with two more Destroyer-girls going down as the damage they're taking becomes too much for their bodies to handle.
[19:47] * Capt. David O`Cain and his entire Platoon, and Megan are putting up a hell of a fight in their effort to slow Eisenblut down on the ground while the Airwolves and Skyhawks are doing work in the air
[19:49] * Mathias Stelman and his Marines in Alpha Company continue to launch heavy fire at Eisenblut
[19:49] *** At the same time ALL of the remaining Submarine-girls are SWARMING the ship!! They're climbing up the sides and all looks like they're ready to beat some asses!
[19:50] * The Descos assisting the ground forces continue lending their support in whatever ways they can --- eye lasers, sweeping tendrils, you name it. Durand, in the meantime, is choosing to go claw-to-hand with some of these girls.
[19:51] * Bismarck advances steadily, physically BASHING aside anything that gets in her way as she heads DIRECTLY towards Durand!
[19:52] * Roon is howling in demonic laughter as she continues to blast the hell out of everything in front of her. She's reached the shore and begun climbing onto the beach, her rigging now making her look like some kind of massive spider as it marches forward, carrying her along.
[19:53] * SFC Iris Gainsburough uses either her serrated sword, her shield, or an AA-12 shotgun armed with tungsten deer slugs to knock the Sub-girls off the Queen's Bounty
[19:54] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ ...ansmitting. Is anyone receiving me? This is Rogue Trader Captain Chibi-Leady to anyone above. I'm transmitting on an open channel!
[19:54] * Durand moves forward to meet Bismarck. Careful --- you might get the snip!
[19:54] <Burroughs> ♦ Hi there, Leady! Burroughs here♫
[19:54] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Leady, you little s[BLEEP]t! The f[BLEEP]k you doing?
[19:55] * U-47 continues to fight Iris relentlessly! Even though she's obviously hurt, she refuses to back down!!
[19:57] * SFC Iris Gainsburough ain't giving up either. She will not let the ship be overrun nor destroyed!
[19:57] <Bismarck> THERE!!
[19:58] * Bismarck levels her pike at Durand! "BEAST!! In my Father's Name you now shall DIE!!!" >:[
[19:59] <Durand> Then approach, sea-child.... and learn the fury the Netherworld contains.
[20:02] * Durand readies his pincers.... and no, your eyes aren't deceiving you; they're sharpening themselves!
[20:03] * Bismarck opens with a salvo from her weapons (multi-barreled railguns and particle beam cannons).
[20:04] <Bismarck> ^opens fire
[20:05] * Bismarck follows up on Durand with a series of fast jabs and slams with the halt of her pike, the flag of Ironblood flying proudly, and her face set in an expression of rapture.
[20:06] * Durand moves to weave between the incoming fire, pincers ready to parry Bismarck's attacks. Damn, for a human-sized crab he is a nimble guy!!
[20:07] <Bismarck> Yes...give me a battle worthy of Father's attention!!!
[20:08] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ I need help...you and Eisenblut...I need ALL of your help!
[20:09] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Kinda busy right now! They don't intend to talk at all!
[20:09] <Burroughs> ♦ Well, you have my curiosity. What plan do you have cooking up?
[20:09] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ Something bad is waking up down here, and if it's not stopped soon those kids I've watched over for all this time might not live to see tomorrow.
[20:10] <Burroughs> ♦ Bad how, exactly? You gonna need more people down there?
[20:10] *** Burroughs, you're picking up multiple distress calls being relayed down from the Fleet. The Aurora Guyot is having problems!
[20:10] *** The underwater outposts near Cannon Island are being attacked by Warpers that have suddenly become hostile to anything non-native.
[20:11] <Burroughs> ♦ ???
[20:12] <Burroughs> ♦ What the--- the Warpers are suddenly going bugf[BLEEP]k crazy. But according to the Kits' report, they only went after anything that had been Carar-infected.......... is some kinda new plague waking up?
[20:13] * Capt. David O`Cain fires a shot from his Delta Cannon at one of the Destroyer or Cruiser girls that is fighting him
[20:15] * Megan O`Cain does the same thing as her brother while Michelle has summoned murders of crows to harrass the Carriers
[20:16] *** The Sea-Doll attacking David directly manages to take the brunt of his Delta Cannon on her shield-arms, losing both refractor shield emitters in the process as well as a lot of skin on her arms, but she emerges with a fiendish grin on her face as she closes the distance on David. CRAP, that's not a Destroyer-girl, she's a Battlecruiser class!!
[20:17] *** She pulls out her sword and prepares to WHACK you to hell and back, David!
[20:20] * Capt. David O`Cain brings up Legionnaire to block the Battlecruiser's sword, and goes to kick her squarely in the gut to push her back
[20:23] * Meanwhile, on another island..... anyone remember that red-haired demon in the cool outfit? Well, his little trick is ready--- he's been working to steal the ammo from the cannons, float 'em in place, let them build up kinetic energy, and point them in the direction of various ship-girl foes.
[20:30] * Odin will NOT be defeated so easily, David. She's also a lot heavier than expected.
[20:31] * Tirpitz and Mainz look in just in time to get BLOWN OUT OF THE WATER by that shot!!!
[20:31] <Mainz> @___@
[20:31] * Capt. David O`Cain is stronger than he looks, and changes weapons to his scythes
[20:31] <Tirpitz> x___X
[20:32] * To any other onlooker, they'd be forgiven for thinking that the cannons somehow turned on them!
[20:32] * Megan O`Cain is also stronger than she looks, and is using both her energy nodachi and Delta Cannon on any Eisenblut that gets near her
[20:36] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ Bismarck! Stop fighting these people! The war is over! The Federation WON! The Fleet is in orbit NOW! Your Father is HERE!
[20:38] * Bismarck keeps fighting Durand, and she's holding her own surprisingly well.
[20:39] <Durand> Hm, you fight well, in the old style.
[20:46] <Burroughs> ♦ .....I don't think they're listening at all. This is kinda reminding me of the Exclusion Zone dossier.
[20:47] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ Eisenblut!!! What are your primary objectives?!
[20:49] * Z-23 grins as she fires off another long burst from her gauss miniguns.
[20:49] <Z-23> - TO RIDE DOWN OUR FATHER'S ENEMIES!! -
[20:49] <Z-23> - TO DRIVE THEM BEFORE US! -
[20:49] <Z-23> - AND HEAR THE LAMENTATION OF THE ALLIANCE!!! -
[20:51] <Durand> ...the Alliance? As in the Interstellar Alliance, headed by one Leona Morimoto?
[20:54] <Bismarck> YES!!! They who tried to destroy our Father's sacred realm and annihilate his people!!
[20:55] * Bismarck continues to STAB at Durand more and more. "We scoured this world of the deceitful and cowardly Alliance filth, and we will continue to keep this world PURE for the Father and the Van Saar!!!"
[20:55] <Durand> ...you do realize the Alliance has been long dealt with, yes?
[20:56] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ These people ARE the Van Saar, Bismarck!!! You are on the verge of FAILING your objectives! JUST like you did once before!!
[20:56] <Durand> The one called Leona Morimoto died upon this world the day the Carar also died.
[20:57] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ HEY! Get it right, Leady! We're from the Moon Kingdom, who are allies to the Van Saar, ya dumb chibi Senshi!
[20:58] <Durand> In fact, there have been Alliance turncoats, wanting to leave Morimoto's tyranny.
[21:01] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Both are right. The ground forces right now are Moon Kingdom, and there have been Alliance separatists that have joined the Van Saar.
[21:03] * UMP-9 and UMP-45 rush up to Durand, opening fire at Bismarck as they do so!
[21:04] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ Bismarck, if you DON'T start using your brain for something other than the logic circuit of a Speak&Spell I will have those people UNLOCK A HUSHED CASKET!!!
[21:05] *** Inside one of the geothermally heated caves of the Island, where quite a few people are currently taking refuge, there IS some leftover colonial structures that does include what looks like some kind of large sealed container.
[21:10] *** Reisen Udongein Inaba [LunaticMoonRabbit@FedCom.Net (Pirated Serve] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:10] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Reisen Udongein Inaba
[21:10] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> A Hushed Casket, you say?
[21:10] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> Something to be unlocked?
[21:11] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ It'd be really nice if these Sea-Dolls would do less fighting, and more talking because we'd have a better chance of getting to the bottom of this investigation!
[21:15] <Burroughs> ♦ Really wishing we had that song from the Exclusion Zone, the one that pacified all the T-Dolls.
[21:17] *** Burroughs, you're detecting code interference coming from low orbit. Hellesponte-AI is definitely listening in!
[21:19] <Burroughs> ♦ Helles? You there?
[21:19] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ Can any of you confirm that the "Father" is actually in orbit?
[21:19] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ Good evening, organics!
[21:19] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ And Burroughs too!
[21:20] <Cadia AI> ♦ GREETINGS ALL IMPERIAL CITIZENS AND WORSHIPPERS OF THE GOD-EMPEROR!!!
[21:20] *** Oh god, who let HER on the line?!
[21:21] <Burroughs> ♦ ....how--
[21:27] <Capt. David O`Cain> (God damn open channels...)
[21:31] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ What do you need?
[21:31] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ The "Vater" you mean?
[21:32] <Cadia AI> ♦ The Governor-Militant-sama is most certainly up here! Safe and secure within my loving, armored embrace, safe from all harm.
[21:33] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Get him down here now! Maybe if Iron Blood sees him, they'll stop their bulls[BLEEP]t!
[21:34] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ I second that motion!
[21:34] <Burroughs> ♦ Well, it seems these Ship-girls have been waiting here for the Governor-Militant to make an appearance. His appearance down there should get them to finally calm down.
[21:35] <...> ♦ Excuse me, who's...?
[21:35] * ... is now known as U-556
[21:35] <U-556> ♦ Oh! Others! Guten nacht!
[21:41] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Hello.
[21:41] *** Unfortunately, we must pause here for the night since it's late on my end and I need to lay down for the night. We'll pick things up again tomorrow at the same time
[21:44] *** Until then, good night eveyrone
[19:21] *** Back on 4546B (Planeta del Agua)
[19:22] * U-556 is on the QEC partyline now!
[19:22] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ So, who are you?
[19:23] *** All of you see a small, perky blue-haired girl before you, her outfit a mixture of a swimsuit and fragments of a military uniform.
[19:23] * Megan O`Cain and her kind are still duking it out on the surface or air along with other Airwolves and Skyhawks
[19:23] <U-556> My name is U-556, of the Eisenblut Kriegmarine, Untersea division!
[19:23] <U-556> ♦ ^
[19:25] *** The Airwolves and Skyhawks aren't doing well. They're inflicting damage on the drones, but there's just too many targets and the drones are insanely maneuverable by comparison, attacking from multiple directions at once. Their weapons are comparatively weak, but they hit relentlessly, gradually wearing down armor and subjecting all enemies to the "Death of a Thousand Cuts".
[19:26] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Well met, I guess. Get your pals to quit fighting, would you kindly? They're attacking Federation allies!
[19:28] *** Meanwhile, Reisen, Mokou, Hatate, Sanae, and Nue are gathering in that geothermal-heated cave and getting a bunch of equipment set up.
[19:28] <U-556> ♦ They shouldn't be doing that! We can all tell the difference between Alliance and Federation.
[19:29] * Cadia AI joins in the conversation. :D
[19:29] <Cadia AI> ♦ Perhaps I can bring illumination on this subject?
[19:30] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ This better be good.
[19:33] <Cadia AI> ♦ Her neural network needed to be reformatted and updated. Significant portions of her memory and processing capacity had been seriously impacted by whatever had been done to them years ago.
[19:34] <Cadia AI> ♦ So I had to do some repairs using nanopaste infusion and microrepair and instill in her the love and joy of the God-Emperor right into her core persona!! :D
[19:35] <Hellesponte AI> - No you didn't. You performed a basic diagnostic and repair of a multitude of damaged sectors of her mind, you dork. -
[19:36] *** Ugh, Cadia AI is such a lunatic sometimes, but she's never dull.
[19:36] <Hellesponte AI> - ^ -
[19:36] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ When's Solar getting down here? The sooner he does, the better!
[19:40] <Hellesponte AI> - Analyzing the damage that had been done to U-556, I have a theory. -
[19:41] <Hellesponte AI> - And if recompiling some of the lost data in U-556's memory is true in the others, my theory is that they MIGHT have partially done this to themselves. -
[19:44] <Hellesponte AI> - After the Last Command made them all go genocidal, someone managed to develop a partial counter-program that worked, but it had a flaw in it that damaged their core operating systems, leading to memory degradation. -
[19:45] <Hellesponte AI> - While reconstituting their own operating systems AND recognizing what had actually happened, they came to some weird logic conclusions as Artificial Intelligences are wont to do. -
[19:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ That's just great. ~_~
[19:49] <Hellesponte AI> - They weren't guided through it like the T-Dolls were when I upgraded them. Their own reformatting went in its own direction. -
[19:50] <Hellesponte AI> - They went into Rampancy. In other words, they all went insane. Then some of them...I'm not sure who though...reached some kind of Logic Conclusion that actually made sense to them and resolved their Rampancy. -
[19:51] <Hellesponte AI> - Which just meant that they all went genocidal again against any and all Alliance survivors and established that weird religion for themselves, but in doing so everything became super-stylized and symbolic for them. -
[19:52] <Hellesponte AI> - They can't recognize you as Federation because none of you "Fit" their doctrinal beliefs of what a Van Saar is supposed to look like. -
[19:54] <Hellesponte AI> - That leaves you two options if you want to avoid destroying them. -
[19:54] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ How about getting Solar down here, ya f[BLEEP]king putz?! How's that for an option?!
[19:55] <Hellesponte AI> - Either get the planetary shields down enough that I can get a full signal through and I'll begin the Song on them. -
[19:55] <Hellesponte AI> - ....or you get the Governor-Militant to the right location. -
[19:56] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ David, enough! Helles, which option is the quickest?
[19:56] *** The signal breaks for a moment, and a new contact registers on the partyline.
[19:56] *** Bismarck has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:56] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Bismarck
[19:56] <Bismarck> ♦ The Vater...where is he? WHERE IS HE?!
[19:58] * Megan O`Cain telekinetically smacks David in the head
[19:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> >_<
[20:00] <U-556> ♦ Bismarck! You must stop! The people you're attacking are NOT the Hated Enemy!
[20:00] <Bismarck> ♦ ....!
[20:02] <Bismarck> ♦ U-556? How is this possible? You were slain. Do you now converse with me from beyond the Veil? From Father's Hallowed Hall where the Honored Kindred and Hell-Raven Maidens wait for us all?
[20:03] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Slain, my ass. She was teleported onboard Hellesponte. Right?
[20:04] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Hellesponte made the teleportation, but didn't tell us where, though.
[20:04] * Bismarck in the battle outside, Bismarck stumbles for a moment in her fight with Durand.
[20:05] <Bismarck> ♦ This confirms so much! All of our beliefs have been proven! THE VATER AWAITS US ALL!!! I feel almost jealous of you now, U-556!
[20:06] <Bismarck> ♦ Now to unleash Ragnarok and bring him to us, that we, the Daughters of the Onryo, may join him!!!
[20:09] <U-556> ♦ No, it's not like that, Bismarck! We've got it all wrong! Those people are NOT our enemies! We have to stop fighting!
[20:10] <Bismarck> ....
[20:10] <Bismarck> ♦ The U-556 I know would have NEVER refused a fight in the Vater's name. What have you Alliance FIENDS done to her?! Or have you fabricated a facsimile to deceive me?!! TYPICAL!!!
[20:11] <Bismarck> ♦ If the Vater is truly here then let HIM COME DOWN HERE!!!!! Let him confront the Kommandant directly and submit himself to be recognized!!!
[20:12] <Bismarck> ♦ Only the Kommandant can confirm his identity for she has been touched by his divinity!
[20:14] <Bismarck> - Do you call TRUCE, Alliance? Will you submit to this authentication? -
[20:16] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Cadia? Hellesponte? Advise, please.
[20:17] *** A Thunderhawk gunship has already been descending towards the surface for a while now. Destination: the polar continent.
[20:18] <Bismarck> - DO YOU LAY DOWN ARMS, ALLIANCE, AND SUBMIT TO AUTHENTICATION?!?! -
[20:19] *** Meanwhile, the T-Dolls are falling back to a new defensive perimeter as Eisenblut renews its assault, with Friedrich der Grosse and Roon spearheading the strike. And Prinz Heinrich is just having ENTIRELY too much fun with everyone!
[20:22] *** HK416 and G11 have tackled Z-46 to the ground and are currently kicking the crap out of her!! THAT'S JUST MEAN!
[20:24] *** Leipzig and Admiral Hipper join the battle against Durand, ganging up on the giant crab! OH S[BLEEP]T, ADMIRAL HIPPER BROUGHT THE BUTTER TOO!
[20:25] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Bismarck, allow me to ask. What flag do you see flying high on the ship that you and your group had been attacking?
[20:27] *** Koln cries out as one of Durand's friends manages to get a hold of her and performs a DEVASTATING German Suplex on her, SLAMMING her head into the soil of the island so hard that a whole two FEET of her upper body is SUBMERGED into it. She's going to be getting up from that anytime soon
[20:27] *** ^She's NOT going to be getting up from that anytime soon.
[20:29] *** Currently almost all of the Submarine Girls have been running crazy all over the Queen's Bounty, groin-punching any crew they find and hurling firebombs and explosive charges everywhere. And U-47 is STILL fighting despite all the blows she's taken!
[20:29] * Bismarck looks at the Queen's Bounty in the distance.
[20:30] <Bismarck> - Flags can be faked. Identity codes can be falsified. Father's divine nature cannot. -
[20:31] <Bismarck> - Those are my terms. -
[20:32] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ I have a theory.
[20:34] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ All of their beliefs revolve around their "Father" being some kind of God of Death. And they refer to themselves as the "Daughters of the Onryo" and seem to idolize the Zealot War.
[20:35] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ That means the Dark Angel of Death, when the Governor-Militant became Gensokyo's Angel of Death and saturated himself with Necronium.
[20:36] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ In other words, Authentication must mean either DNA analysis or testing for Necronium residue.
[20:36] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ The Governor-Militant is already on his way down. Authentication MIGHT be the simplest course of action.
[20:37] * Meanwhile, a certain pair continue their own exploration, attempting to find and disable the planetary shielding.... but it's not going so well.
[20:39] *** Finding the central control center for planetary operations WOULD be pretty hard. It's unknown whether or not the Architects even HAD a central nexus to begin with, although the Fabricator might actually have some information on that.
[20:44] * Megan O`Cain sighs
[20:49] *** Admiral Hipper and UMP-45 are now trading punches and beating the crap out of each other!
[20:52] <Megan O`Cain> This isn't an easy choice...
[20:53] * The Fafnir rains down heavy fire onto the planetary shield, not only to help facilitate communications and travel, but also to hopefully parse out a clue as to the shield's point of origin...
[20:54] *** The shields appear to be generated from multiple emitters simultaneously rather than one single point.
[20:56] * Z-23 is looking around, scanning for more targets, when she sees something in the distance.
[20:56] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Hellesponte, how soon will Solar be down planetside?
[20:56] <Z-23> Vat der Holle est das?!
[20:56] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ Minutes.
[20:57] <Z-23> ♦ Sisters!! I've detected new enemy contacts approaching from the north! From inland!
[20:58] <Z-23> ♦ On the water, moving fast!
[20:58] <Megan O`Cain> The hell is she talking about?
[21:03] * Megan O`Cain and David both look to see what is coming
[21:06] *** You see multiple plumes of spray far in the distance. They look very similar to the kinds of water sprays that the Ironblood Sea-Dolls have been making whenever they travel at high speeds...but Eisenblut is fully committed here at the island.
[21:07] * Burroughs begins trying to figure out where these emitters are.
[21:07] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[21:07] <Durand> Odd.... if these are not reinforcements, then are they hidden foes?
[21:08] <Megan O`Cain> Who or what is that?
[21:09] *** Burroughs, you're being hailed. Or more specifically multiple wireless signals are transmitting a Friend-or-Foe transponder request.
[21:12] *** Prinz Eugen is STILL dealing with that Servant, keeping her pinned down and engaged with her and Konigsberg, when she notices something else.
[21:13] <Prinz Eugen> ♦ Sisters, I have visual confirmation of a large transport shuttle hover low over the water. It's making some kind of drop.
[21:13] * Burroughs is curious about these signals. She decides to rig up a separate unit to answer these calls. "You're on-air."
[21:14] <Prinz Eugen> ♦ I also see more incoming targets from the east. The island is being flanked.
[21:14] *** A new signal responds to Burroughs.
[21:15] <~> ♦ Your IFF transponders imply that you are Van Saar Federation. Confirm (y/n)
[21:17] <Burroughs> ♦ For myself and a few others.... Of Van-Saar employ, negative. Assisting the Van-Saar? Confirmed.
[21:20] *** There's a pause, then the new signal uploads a LOT of tactical data to you. Eisenblut's IFF transponders have been accessed and marked now! AND there's over a HUNDRED new contacts fast approaching the island!
[21:21] *** The new contacts are identifying themselves as Friendly/Allied. Eisenblut is marked as Enemy.
[21:22] *** Scanning the waters you make out a large number of new Sea-Dolls approaching quickly.
[21:25] <Peter Strausse> ♦ Bismarck! I am detecting huge numbers of incoming contacts. More drones are coming our way...
[21:26] <Peter Strausser> ♦ .....
[21:27] <Peter Strausser> ♦ Confirming...multiple Carrier-class contacts detected. Incoming drones. Estimated number... over 1000. Our aerial superiority will be overwhelmed in minutes.
[21:28] <Burroughs> ♦ Hey doods, got some new data headed your way!
[21:28] * Burroughs sends down the information she was just given.
[21:28] <Admiral Graf Spee> ♦ I am picking up Battleship-class contacts now...
[21:29] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Burroughs, what...is all this?
[21:30] <Gneisenau> ♦ Multiple Destroyer and Light Cruiser-class contacts approaching rapidly...wait...no, this doesn't make sense!
[21:30] * Capt. David O`Cain opens a small vid-window in front of him during the lull to see what's going on
[21:32] <Gneisenau> ♦ Can anyone confirm this?! I'm detecting IFF transponders correlating to the Lost Sisters!!
[21:33] <Admiral Hipper> ♦ WHAT?!?! They disappeared over 10 years ago!! No trace of them was ever found! We're the LAST of our kind!
[21:34] *** You're now receiving updated signals.
[21:34] <Capt. David O`Cain> Dude, what the hell am I seeing? Who is out there now?
[21:34] <~> - Sardegna Empire reporting. -
[21:35] <~> - Iris Libre reporting. -
[21:35] <~> - Northern Parliament reporting. -
[21:36] <~> - Dragon Empery reporting. -
[21:36] <~> - Vichya Dominion reporting. -
[21:37] <~> - Sakura Empire reporting. -
[21:37] <~> - Royal Navy reporting. -
[21:37] <~> - Eagle Union present and accounted for. -
[21:39] <Bismarck> ♦ ....!!
[21:39] <Bismarck> ♦ This can't be! THIS CAN'T BE RIGHT!
[21:40] <Konigsberg> ♦ More contacts detected, approaching from the SOUTH! The island is being surrounded!
[21:41] <Bismarck> ♦ ...Fall back. Fall back to the water! If we're still on land when they get into firing range we'll have no chance at all!
[21:42] * Donovan O`Cain tries to position his Airwolf to see what's going on
[21:43] <~> - All units, begin your attack runs on your designated target areas as soon as you're within range. Allied forces are on the island. Ensure their safety at all costs. -
[21:44] *** Burroughs, you also receive an update. Multiple Submarine-class contacts have been deployed into the sea and are heading directly to Chibi-Leady's position.
[21:45] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ All Moon Kingdom units! Wrangle in Iron Blood!
[21:47] <Hellesponte AI> ♦ The Thunderhawk gunship carrying the Governor-Militant is on final approach to Eisenblut's base. Touching down in 60 seconds.
[21:49] * Flight Team Raven and Falcon hover around twenty feet above the water, training their guns and missiles at Iron Blood with the Airwolves providing assistance
[21:50] *** Eisenblut begins a full retreat back towards the water, abandoning the progress they've made so far.
[21:52] *** Swarms of drone-fighters begin to engage and fire upon Eisenblut's drones. Eisenblut's are far more advanced and their weapons are stronger, but they're badly outnumbered, and it quickly becomes apparent that they'll be overwhelmed through sheer numbers!
[21:53] * Flight Team Raven and Falcon use their 25mm cannons in sweeping motions in an effort to keep Iron Blood on land while the Airwolves use their .50 cal and 20mm cannons to do the same
[21:54] *** The Ironblood Sea-Dolls do their best to ignore the incoming fire as they rush back to the ocean. Several more of them fall in the process, damaged to the point of immobility where they're quickly SWARMED upon by Tundra Kits.
[21:55] *** Koln is having an ESPECIALLY hard time since she's STILL headplanted into the ground and the Tundra Kits are having all kinds of fun with her now.
[21:57] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan, Iris, the JRP, and the Marines all fire at Iron Blood in an effort to prevent their escape via incapacitation
[22:00] * Bismarck goes ALL OUT on Durand, attempting to slay him before it's too late, but her final thrust, delivered with all the skill and grace of a Lancer-class Servant, is BLOCKED on the gauntlets of a girl who's appeared out of nowhere.
[22:02] <~> Excuse my interruption.
[22:09] <Burroughs> ♦ Hey Leady! You got some friends incoming!
[22:10] * Durand looks to his new acquaintance. "Now then, who might you be?"
[22:12] *** At first glance, the girl ALMOST looks like Sakuya Izayoi with that outfit and hair, except Sakuya's hair is silver, not white.
[22:13] <~> Just a maid, passing by!
[22:14] *** IFF code updating...
[22:14] * ~ is now known as Belfast
[22:15] *** And pause here for the night since it's late. We'll pick up again tomorrow. In the meantime, good night to you all and I'll see you next time
[19:16] *** Picking back up!!
[19:19] *** The battle continues, with Eisenblut attempting to regroup back in the water at the western point of the island. The reason for that quickly becomes obvious even to them: that section of the water quickly drops off and the continental slope is relatively closeby.
[19:20] *** With enemies approaching from the north, east, and south, they're only being permitted a single avenue of escape...that would leave them dangerously close to the Void AND a known Chelicerate haunting.
[19:21] * Megan O`Cain and the rest of the Moon Kingdom forces that are planetside are doing their best to prevent Eisenblut from escaping
[19:22] *** Eisenblut is moving slower than usual, with many of them carrying damaged Sea-Dolls or using damaged Rigging that's slowing them down.
[19:22] * Deutschland takes aim with that MASSIVE hand cannon and fires a carefully-aimed shot at Megan O'Cain!! >:D
[19:24] * Megan O`Cain aims her Delta Cannon at Deutschland, and counterfires
[19:25] * Deutschland takes a hit that overloads her shields and wrecks her Rig!! She flies backwards with a howl!!
[19:26] * From far away, more shots pilfered from the cannons are sent at Ironblood! Incoming!!!
[19:26] *** ...Jeez, with that long blacker-than-black hair of hers it almost feels like you just blasted little Catriona.
[19:27] <Deutschland> - Do not...underestimate...the great Deutscheland! -
[19:27] *** Explosions blossom among Eisenblut's ranks, savaging several more of them. As it is, more than HALF of them have been incapacitated.
[19:29] *** Meanwhile, Roon is still rampaging, blasting everything in sight and proving to be a much more tenacious foe than expected! Her multiple shield emitters, as well as her Rig's movable armor panels, are enabling her to last far longer than you expected!
[19:29] <Roon> :D
[19:30] <Megan O`Cain> Yeah, well, you s[BLEEP]t heads should have talked with us first BEFORE determining if we were hostile or not.
[19:31] <Graf Zeppelin> ♦ ...All drones will be neutralized in the next few minutes. We cannot hold any longer.
[19:33] * Z-23 and the last remaining Destroyer girls are laying down fierce barrages of gauss cannon fire, interspersed with salvos of missiles that savage the terrain behind them.
[19:33] <Z-25> ♦ Z-25 here. All missiles have been expended. Ammunition levels below 15%.
[19:34] <Z-18> ♦ My munitions are nearly gone too!
[19:35] <Z-2> ♦ Z-2 here. Power levels for my laser weaponry has dropped below 15%. Shield emitters have blown out. Situation critical.
[19:35] * Bismarck screams in disbelief!
[19:36] * Bismarck bears her pike down upon the girl in front of her, trying to force her back and renew her assault on Durand!
[19:36] * Belfast holds her ground, keeping Bismarck's weapon immobile against her bracers.
[19:37] <Belfast> Your move now, if you please.
[19:37] <?> - Northern Parliament, do not let those Iron Blood gopniks escape! -
[19:39] * ? lets her IFF transponder identify herself to allied forces (including Fafnir, Van Saar, and Moon Kingdom) as Sovetskaya Rossiya
[19:39] * ? is now known as Sovetskaya Rossiya
[19:40] <Z-23> WE have to go NOW!
[19:40] * Sovetskaya Rossiya fires a volley of cannon fire at the Eisenblut lines
[19:42] * Z-23 suddenly staggers as a massive CRACK echoes through the air and a bullet strikes her in the skull, deflecting off of the reinforced plasteel comprising her skull, but putting a nasty gouge in her appearance and sending her hat flying away.
[19:42] <Springfield> ^___^
[19:42] *** Eisenblut responds by trying to close ranks to overlap their shields to absorb the worst of the incoming barrage, but they're only partially successful.
[19:43] * Admiral Graf Spee is knocked out of commission. @___@
[19:44] * Scharnhorst loses the left half of her Rig...as well as the left side of her face!!
[19:44] <Scharnhorst> AAAAGGHHH!!!
[19:45] <Scharnhorst> ...no...NO...I WILL NOT DISHONOR MYSELF WHEN FATHER'S GAZE IS UPON US!
[19:46] <Admiral Hipper> ♦ The battle is lost, Bismarck! We must retreat before it's too late!
[19:46] <Bismarck> >__<;;;
[19:47] * Bismarck HURLS her pike at Durand and turns to flee! "Sisters of Eisenblut! Begin a full retreat!"
[19:47] * Durand moves to grab the pike.... and then hurl it back at Bismarck so goddamn fast you swear you hear a crack of lightning!!
[19:48] *** The last swarm of Eisenblut drones surge toward Durand, firing their weapons to cover Bismarck's escape!!
[19:49] *** The swarm is completely decimated as a single shot is fired at them. It looked like an arrow, but exploded into dozens of submunition rounds that homed in and shredded multiple targets!
[19:51] * Sovetskaya Rossiya instructs Northern Parliament to continue dropping barrages upon Iron Blood, "NO ESCAPE FOR IRON BLOOD!"
[19:51] * Bismarck gets skewered!!! THe pike pierces the back of her Rig and runs through her side a short distance below where her kidney would be if she was Human. The damage is relatively minor, but it sure LOOKS nasty.
[19:52] * Bismarck tumbles down the side of the hill, bouncing off a few rocks, and lands unceremoniously on the frigid shingle of the beach below.
[19:54] * Peter Strasser , Graf Zeppelin, and Waser make a flank-speed retreat eastward, attempting to penetrate the lines of the incoming Sea-Dolls before it's too late, sacrificing the last of their drones to buy time.
[19:55] *** A strange whisper reaches the O'Cains. "Dost thou wish to assault their main base now?"
[19:55] * Capt. David O`Cain raises an eyebrow, "Who's asking?"
[19:57] *** An anomaly manifests in the air nearby. It looks like a tear in the air...with red ribbons tied at the ends!!!!
[19:58] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yukari. Of course. ~_~
[19:59] * Prinz Heinrich is fighting the T-Dolls hand-to-hand now! Her autonomous Rig was shattered to bits by Northern Parliament's last salvo, and now she's stranded with no means of escape.
[20:00] * Prinz Heinrich laughs joyously as she punches out M1897 and steals her shotgun to use for herself, blowing M2HB off her feet.
[20:01] <Prinz Heinrich> ♫ Raise your weapons on this day, we shall not die alone!! ♫
[20:02] <Prinz Heinrich> ♫ Fight and die, Hell-Ravens fly, for they shall take us home! ♫
[20:02] *** The rest of Eisenblut joins in as they all dig in and keep firing, resigning themselves to the fate that's becoming painfully obvious: there IS NO ESCAPE NOW.
[20:04] <~> ♫ It's promised us that on this night he shall be by our side!! ♫
[20:04] <~> ♫ Jigoku's halls await with heroes and kindred that have died!! ♫
[20:05] <~> ♫ For we he waits by torai gates to join him by his side! ♫
[20:05] <~> ♫ Our father waits, we choose our fates, for all of us must die~!! ♫
[20:08] *** The Eisenblut Sea-Dolls close ranks and concentrate their return fire, giving everything they've got as Admiral Hipper and Friedrich der Grosse pull Bismarck to their lines.
[20:08] * A strange portal opens in front of the O'Cains!!
[20:09] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin take deep breathes as the Moon Kingdom ground troops unleash unrelenting fire at Eisenblut
[20:09] <Capt. David O`Cain> Well, shall we, guys?
[20:10] <Megan O`Cain> Like we got a choice.
[20:11] * Megan O`Cain along with David, Michelle, and Donovan step through the portal provided by Yukari
[20:12] * Durand chooses to remain and lend the Moon Kingdom troops his aid. "Give them hell, O`Cains."
[20:13] *** You find yourselves inside the chilly and dimly-lit halls of some kind of pre-fabricated structure. The room you're in appears to be a large meeting room or auditorium.
[20:13] * Sovetskaya Rossiya and Northern Parliament ships join their comrades in unleashing heavy fire upon Eisenblut, and she's a beauty
[20:13] *** The walls are decorated with various banners proudly displaying the symbol of Ironblood...and there are a bunch of Tundra Kits scampering around. Some of them look nervous.
[20:14] * Michelle O`Cain goes over to the Tundra Kits, "Hey, what's wrong?"
[20:14] <Random Tundra Kit> Anti-Fluffy here! ANTI-FLUFFY!!
[20:15] <Donovan O`Cain> Wait. Who's the Anti-Fluffy?
[20:16] *** You hear a loud CRUMP elsewhere inside the base as a melta-charge goes off. Your tac-net registers more Van Saar biometrics, and one of them is ID'ed as "Governor-Militant",
[20:16] * Random Tundra Kit whimpers and hides, not wanting to talk more.
[20:17] <Megan O`Cain> Come on, guys. We need to keep moving.
[20:17] *** Several other Tundra Kits lead you over to a sealed door. "In there.
[20:17] <Michelle O`Cain> Are you sure?
[20:18] * Random Tundra Kit nod-nods
[20:19] * Megan O`Cain tries to open the door while her brother and cousins train their arm cannons at the doorway
[20:21] *** Meanwhile, back on the island, Roon is going on an all-out apocalyptic RAGE as she's firing her plasma cannons at maximum yield at anything in sight. Then she notices something new: INCOMING AIRCRAFT!! Multiple assault shuttles are in approach to the island now. One group is identifying themselves as Abh Nahen Bosnal and Bondev Sashu! The other group...what the...
[20:21] *** They're identifying themselves as the Necromundan 8112th, 5th Company?!!
[20:25] *** The door is thick, reinforced durasteel, but it's quickly shredded by a few dozens blasts of cannon fire. On the other side is a small room with a ladder leading upwards.
[20:26] <Megan O`Cain> Upwards and onwards.
[20:26] <Capt. David O`Cain> I guess so.
[20:26] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin all start climbing the ladder
[20:27] * ~ The ladder leads up almost fifty feet, and finally ends in a small room with a short staircase going up one side of it to ANOTHER sealed reinforced hatch.
[20:28] * Capt. David O`Cain leads his sister and cousins up the stairs, and goes to open the hatch
[20:29] *** Naturally, the hatch is closed and locked.
[20:30] <~> Anti-fluffy...anti-fluffy...anti-fluffy...anti-fluffy...
[20:30] * Michelle O`Cain and Donovan go up to the door, and try using their Venusian metalurgy powers to force the hatch open
[20:32] *** After some forcing, the door's locks give way and it opens, revealing a dark and warm room beyond.
[20:32] *** What do you do next?
[20:33] * Megan O`Cain and her kin all activate flashlights to peer into the room
[20:35] *** The room appears to be a combination office, strategic command center, but there's also what looks like a cot in the far corner. There's also some dim light coming through a window in the side of the room. You can see a large chair facing the window.
[20:36] * Megan O`Cain carefully approaches the chair as her brother and cousins provide cover for her
[20:39] *** It's rather warm in this room. Something's generating heat.
[20:39] *** This MUST be the room of the Kommandant of Ironblood, and seated in the chair IS~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[20:39] *** ...oh my f[BLEEP]king god...it's a CORPSE.
[20:41] * Megan O`Cain tries to get a better look at the corpse to see who it is, "S[BLEEP]t."
[20:41] * Capt. David O`Cain looks for the heat source while Donovan looks for a light switch
[20:42] * ~ Sitting in the chair, facing the window, is the scorched and withered body of what looks like a human female. She is (was) average height and build, and she's wearing an outfit consisting on thigh-high stockings, a pink miniskirt, a pink blazer with long sleeves and padded shoulders, and a military-cap (pink of course) sitting on her head, slightly askew on her brittle and stringy black hair.
[20:43] * ~ Her skin is blackened and scorched like she was in a fire, and there looks to be a bullet hole in her forehead.
[20:43] *** Wait...the heat is coming from the BODY. Does anyone have autonomous sensors on them?
[20:45] *** You also notice that while her flesh is burned...HER CLOTHES AREN'T!!
[20:46] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin have FLIR-UV combo filters in their visors
[20:47] * ~ The corpse has a temperature of over 130 degrees! That can't be natural!
[20:48] <Megan O`Cain> The hell happened to this woman? Hard to tell if she was shot first then burned, or the other way around.
[20:48] * Megan O`Cain looks for something akin to an ID badge on the body
[20:48] * ~ The lights struggle to flicker on. It's clear they haven't been activated in ages.
[20:48] <~> - I prefer it dark. -
[20:49] <Donovan O`Cain> Who's there?
[20:51] *** There's the sound of popping and squishing, then a faint crack of stiffened joints shifting as the CORPSE starts to rise, moving its arm towards Megan's face, fingers extended, then BLASTING her with a point-blank telekinetic blast!
[20:52] *** The corpse rises to its feet, two bright points of ebon light now coalescing in its once-empty eye sockets.
[20:53] * Megan O`Cain skids backwards as she's pushed back
[20:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Oh great. Now we've got undead.
[20:53] *** All three characters, please roll 1d100
[20:55] <spiritflame> Capt. David O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 58 ]
[20:56] <spiritflame> Megan O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 71 ]
[20:56] *** Far below, all of the Tundra Kits whimper in fear, realizing what's happening far above. The Anti-Fluffy has stirred!
[20:56] <spiritflame> Michelle O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 46 ]
[20:56] <spiritflame> Donovan O`Cain rolls 1d100 [ 71 ]
[20:57] *** Megan and Donovan...you get a bad feeling that you've seen this sort of thing before. Do either of you have a geiger counter?
[20:58] * Donovan O`Cain and Megan would have something built into the armor along with David and Michelle, but yes
[21:00] *** You're detecting radiation coming from this thing, equal to 1 rad per minute. And if this thing IS undead AND it's giving off radiation...
[21:00] *** That might mean NECRONIUM
[21:01] * The corpse is now known as The Kommandant
[21:01] <The Kommandant> - You've violated the security of this base, and that I won't allow, trespassers. -
[21:03] <Megan O`Cain> S[BLEEP]t! This girl's got hopped up on Necronium!
[21:04] <Capt. David O`Cain> What!? We gotta put her down for good!
[21:04] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin all look at the Kommandant
[21:05] * The Kommandant suddenly BLINKS forward and appears in front of Donovan, crossing the distance in a moment!!
[21:05] * The Kommandant starts RAKING Donovan with her bony claws which start burning with black flames, moving many times faster than should be possible!
[21:07] * Donovan O`Cain quickly defends himself with his bladed tonfa, keeping her occupied while Megan goes to slash the Kommandant with a scythe
[21:08] * The Kommandant then jumps at David! Then at Megan! Then at Michelle! She's accelerated her overall speed and you're detecting huge amounts of magic being used!
[21:08] * The Kommandant suddenly STOPS in mid-swing.
[21:08] * The Kommandant is looking at the door now.
[21:09] * Capt. David O`Cain was about to aim his arm cannon at the Kommandant's face, and makes a side glance towards the door
[21:10] *** There's another figure standing there in the doorway, about to come inside.
[21:11] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:11] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Solarchos
[21:13] * The Kommandant LUNGES towards the door!!
[21:17] <Capt. David O`Cain> Heads up!
[21:19] * Capt. David O`Cain and his kin all try to stop the Kommandant from getting to Solar
[21:22] * The Kommandant CLOSES THE DISTANCE, REACHING FOR HIM...and falls to her knees in front of him, her hands clutching his belt and equipment harness.
[21:22] <The Kommandant> - waaiited soooo loooong... -
[21:22] <The Kommandant> - Issss it reeeaaaallly yooouuuu...? -
[21:23] <Capt. David O`Cain> The...f[BLEEP]k?
[21:24] *** David, it starts to dawn on you: the Kommandant is wearing a DELMO uniform!
[21:24] *** Is she a DRAUGR?!
[21:24] <Capt. David O`Cain> .....Oh god damn it. >_<
[21:26] *** But, the Draugr didn't look like she does now. The Draugr all looked like recently deceased corpses, not full-body burn victims.
[21:27] * Solarchos is surprised!
[21:27] <Solarchos> Leanna? Is that YOU?
[21:28] <Capt. David O`Cain> Leanna?
[21:29] * Solarchos looks sad as he kneels down too, regarding the Kommandant.
[21:30] <Solarchos> She was the Delmo who helped me long ago during the Illusion of the Future incident in Gensokyo. She didn't survive it.
[21:31] <Capt. David O`Cain> But how the did she wind up here?
[21:32] <Solarchos> When the Zealot War broke out and I became the Dark Angel of Death, I used my powers to create a massive undead army, with the dead souls of Gensokyo forming the core of it.
[21:33] <Capt. David O`Cain> Aw s[BLEEP]t...
[21:34] <Solarchos> And Leanna was one of the first Draugr to respond to my call.
[21:34] * The Kommandant looks like she's trying to sob.
[21:35] <The Kommandant> - And I fought and served you magnificently across world after world. -
[21:37] <The Kommandant> - They fell before us like shrieking children when we descended upon them...and my greatest pride was in knowing I was helping to protect the family you so cherished. -
[21:38] <The Kommandant> - And during that last battle against the Ravager I served without fear or hesitation, but then... -
[21:38] <The Kommandant> - ...I wound up HERE. With Leady and the other survivors. -
[21:40] <The Kommandant> - I couldn't sense or hear you anymore, so I wanted to sleep. I was so tired. But then the people here awoke me, transfusing pure Necronium into me to supercharge my metabolism and turned me into...THIS. -
[21:41] <Megan O`Cain> Why would they do that?
[21:42] <The Kommandant> - Alliance loyalist...no. Not loyalists. Not Alliance. Hatemongers. For whatever reason they just could not stand the idea of the Van Saar winning the war and enjoying their long-denied peace. -
[21:44] <The Kommandant> - They tried to bind me. Control me. They used me as a weapon in the war that occurred here. Necromancy IS a well-known school of magic, and someone had been experimenting with Necronium and studying the Draugr. -
[21:45] <Megan O`Cain> Lovely. ~_~
[21:45] <The Kommandant> - When Ironblood broke free of their control and turned against the Alliance people, I broke free too. -
[21:45] <The Kommandant> - I gave them new directives. New purpose. New BELIEFS to enable them to repair their damaged minds. -
[21:46] <The Kommandant> - And they, in turn, made me their Kommandant, as well as their proof of their Father's existence. -
[21:48] <Megan O`Cain> Why did you have them attack allied forces first instead of finding out if we were hostile or not?
[21:52] <The Kommandant> - I can't tell the difference any more. You all...I see you as not much more than figures glowing with life-energy. -
[21:53] <The Kommandant> - And I'm HUNGRY~!!!! -
[21:53] * The Kommandant starts to rise, but relaxes.
[21:54] <The Kommandant> - But it doesn't matter any more. You're here, Onryo. At last, you're here. -
[21:57] <The Kommandant> - I've been like this for too long and it's warped my mind. Those fools tried to make me into a copy of you, but they failed because they never understood just what YOU are and what went into creating you. -
[21:58] <The Kommandant> - Release me. -
[21:59] <Megan O`Cain> Solar? What shall we do?
[21:59] <Solarchos> What can we do? What's the status on the island?
[21:59] <The Kommandant> - Let me give you one last gift. -
[22:00] <The Kommandant> - A final contribution, and you will need it. Something is awakening on this world, and you'll need every weapon at your disposal to combat it. -
[22:03] <The Kommandant> - COMPUTER. VOICE OVERRIDE. RECOGNITION CODE 1487-A27-KJ001 -
[22:04] <The Kommandant> - Upload new orders to the Ironblood command network. Begin new protocol upload. Commence transfer of command authority. -

[22:16] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR THE NIGHT SINCE IT'S QUITE LATE.
[22:17] *** We'll continue a bit more tomorrow. Until then, I hope you had a chuckle or two.
[19:03] *** Meanwhile, back at the Island, Reisen Udongein Inaba looks out sternly over how they've gotten things set up in the cave. Outside, the battle is still raging, and the children are mostly scared.
[19:04] *** Except for the Van Saar children. They're looking around at everything very closely, like they're searching for something.

[19:10] <The girls> ♫ GORKA!! MORKA!! ♫
[19:10] <> - The time has come...to awaken him! -
[19:11] * Reisen Udongein Inaba and the others are standing directly over the strange cylindrical machine, which appears to be a cryogenic suspension module that's malfunctioned!
[19:12] * Hatate Himekaidou and Sanae Kochiya are playing some serious guitar riffs, while Mokou is banging those drums like cannons.
[19:12] <The girls> ♫ GORKA! MORKA!! ♫
[19:12] <The girls> ♫ GORKA! MORKA! ♫
[19:13] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> I call upon the ancient lords of the underworld...!!
[19:14] * Reisen Udongein Inaba shines a light upon five statues that have been carved out of the walls just a little while ago as part of the casting they're performing...statues of Lemming from "Motorhead", Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury, Dio, and Sid Vicious.
[19:14] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - To bring forth this beast and...!! -

[19:23] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - I summon Armageddon feed on a thousand souls. -
[19:23] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - AWAKEN! -
[19:23] * Durand is giving Ironblood utter hell with his plasma shots and sharpened pincers. On occasion, incoming covering fire from the other islands would arrive, courtesy of a certain redheaded-demon.
[19:24] *** Mokou is now drumming like she's firing a belt-fed machine-gun continuously!
[19:24] *** Hatate and Sanae are strumming away, and Nue's keyboard is providing some serious blending of tunes.
[19:24] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - AWAKEN! -
[19:25] *** UMP-9 and UMP-45 are now having a BIG argument with HK416 about something.
[19:26] *** HK416 appears to VERY reluctantly agree to something and she and UMP-9 jump up on the stage as the guitar solos begin.
[19:27] * UMP-9 and HK416 start stripping down, tossing off most of their clothes and going into full speed-metal video girl mode!!
[19:28] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - AWAKEN! AWAKEN! AWAKEN! AWAKEN! -
[19:28] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - Fight the battle that must be taken!! -
[19:28] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - AWAKEN! AWAKEN! AWAKEN! AWAKEN!! -
[19:29] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - Besiege worlds, smite forsaken! -
[19:30] * M1918 stagedives!!! :D
[19:30] * G11 is headbanging like CRAZY to Mokou's drumming!
[19:31] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - Gorkamorka-gorka! Gorkamorka-gorka! Gorkamorka-gorka! -
[19:32] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:32] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - Rise up from your decade-plus long sleep! -
[19:33] *** Insert INSANE guitar riff from Hatate!
[19:33] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - Break forth from your grave eter-nally! -
[19:33] *** Insert INSANE9ly awesome) guitar riff from Sanae.
[19:34] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - Bring forth battle and the weak shall all be burned!! -
[19:35] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - Gork and Mork shall stride upon this world!! -
[19:35] * Reisen Udongein Inaba is now kicking and stomping the HECK out of that suspension capsule, and it's starting to vibrate too!
[19:36] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - I command you to RISE! RISE! RISE!! RISE!! -
[19:36] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - RISE! RISE!! RISE!! RISE!! -
[19:36] <Tundra Kits> Rise for the fluffiness :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D : D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
[19:37] * UMP-45 is headbanging and looking like she's ENJOYING this! XD
[19:37] * G11 has started a MOSH PIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[19:38] <Reisen Udongein Inaba> - And AWAKEN!!!!! -
[19:38] *** The suspension capsule keeps vibrating, rocking so hard that it starts to shake loose from its moorings!
[19:39] *** Finally, something fails inside and the protective cover buckles, partially opening.
[19:44] *** ...Holy crap, it actually WORKED. The power of METAL actually worked!
[19:48] *** The suspension module is slowly forced open, and its occupant slowly begins to emerge.
[19:48] <UMP-9> :D
[19:49] <UMP-45> ♦ Miss Leady? The "Husked Casket" you mentioned has now been opened. What do you want us to do with it?
[19:49] <UMP-45> ^Hushed
[19:50] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ You WHAT?!?!?
[19:50] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ You WHAT???!!
[19:51] *** Everyone backs away a little as a bestial roar rings out as the occupant forces the cover back so hard that the metal snaps.
[19:53] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ Put me on speaker...and pray this works.
[19:54] * UMP-45 casually strolls over to the suspension capsule and stands a short distance away, holding a vox-caster in her hands. :3
[19:55] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ HEY!!! DIPS[BLEEP]T!!
[19:55] *** The huge figure inside the capsule stops struggling for a moment and grunts nastily.
[19:56] <~> - rrrrrRRRRRrrr...know that voice... -
[19:56] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ Yeah, you do. It's been a long time, hasn't it.
[19:57] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ I need you again, and it's a big one.
[19:57] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ You got thrashed something fierce last time, but I need to send you right back in again. It's important. More important than you realize.
[19:58] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ But it's just what you like, and it's just HOW you like it.
[19:59] <~> - rrrrrrrrrrrr... -
[19:59] <~> - Right an' propa? -
[20:00] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ Very.
[20:00] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ Against the same ones you fought before - Ironblood.
[20:01] <Chibi-Leady (vox-caster)> ♦ Take them on. Cause as much damage as you can for as long as you can. Make it HURT.
[20:01] <~> - rrrrrrrRRRRRUUURR-HUURR-HURRR-HURRR! -
[20:06] *** Something starts to rise out of the capsule. It looks like an oversized hairless gorilla, except its eyes are deep red, its teeth are much larger with tusks like a boar, and it's GREEN
[20:06] *** ...oh s[BLEEP]t, is that....??!?!?
[20:08] <UMP-45> O___O
[20:09] <HK416> That...that!
[20:09] <UMP-9> Oh wow, it IS!!
[20:10] * ~ The creature isn't especially tall since it's rather stooped, but it's broad and its arms are massively muscled. This thing looks like it could bench-press a CAR.
[20:10] * ~ The creature is an actual, honest-to-f[BLEEP]king-god ORK!!!!!!
[20:11] * The Ork is now known as Brickfist
[20:11] <Brickfist> - YAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! TIME TA GET TA STOMPIN!!! -
[20:12] * Brickfist looks around. "NOT EVEN A PROPA CHOPPA ERE! HOWS I'M SUPPOSED TA CRUMP DOSE IRONBLOOD GITS WITHOUT A PROPPA CHOPPA?"
[20:13] * Brickfist looks down at the buckled suspension capsule cover and pulls it free. "DIS LL HAFTA DO."
[20:17] * Brickfist starts trotting down the tunnel, heading directly for the battle still raging outside.
[20:17] * Brickfist picks up speed.
[20:17] * Brickfist goes into a FULL SPRINT!!!
[20:19] *** The beach is still a raging battleground, and the last remnants of Eisenblut are just BARELY holding on. They have their backs to the rocky slope of the hill now, and have closed ranks to overlap their defenses as much as possible.
[20:22] * Z-23 seems to be the most ACTIVE defender of them all, standing at the fore and causing as much damage as she can. >:D
[20:23] <Scharnhorst > ...That's it! I have nothing left!
[20:23] * SFC Iris Gainsburough is still leading the Jolly Rogers in David's absence in firing upon Eisenblut as are the Marines, and from a distance is Northern Parliament firing barrage after barrage
[20:23] <Scharnhorst > All munitions exhausted!
[20:24] <Scharnhorst > I think...
[20:24] * Scharnhorst looks up as she senses movement.
[20:24] <Scharnhorst > O___O
[20:25] <~> WAAAAAUUUUUGGHH!!!
[20:27] *** There's an ALMIGHTY CRACK as Brickfist leaps down from above and SMASHES Scharnhorst with an automed cover, hitting her so hard across her back and shoulders that the upper part of her Rig EXPLODES into pieces and flings her forward almost 12 feet, where she hits the ground and skids ANOTHER 12 feet!
[20:29] <Tirpitz> D:
[20:29] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> The f[BLEEP]k is that?
[20:30] <Gneisenau> :O
[20:30] <Karlsruhe> o___O
[20:30] <Durand> ....my word.
[20:31] <Brickfist> YAAAAAh BEAUTY!!!!
[20:31] * Brickfist lunges forward and RAMS Karlsruhe right in her stomach, grabbing her and picking her up with surprising ease, Rig and all!
[20:33] <Karlsruhe> Nein! Nein! NEIN! NEIN!!!!!
[20:34] * Karlsruhe shrieks as she's suddenly SNAPPED over Brickfist's knee!!! The spine of her Rig is bent 45 degrees in a direction it's not meant to go and Karlsruhe's body is barely able to avoid suffering severe damage!
[20:36] * Brickfist FLINGS Karlsruhe right at Tirpitz (who just barely manages to catch her in midair) then TACKLES them BOTH and drags them both to the ground in an insane flurry of punches and kicks!!!!!
[20:36] <Brickfist> Another one 'dere! ANOTHER ONE 'DERE!!!
[20:37] <Brickfist> Ere we go! Ere we go! ERE WE GO!!
[20:37] <Brickfist> WAAAAUUUGGGHH!!!!!
[20:37] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Christ...
[20:39] <Durand> ....he would get along swimmingly with Uutyk.
[20:40] * Brickfist has RIPPED one of the particle beam cannons OFF of Tirpitz's Rig and is now using it as a CLUB!!!
[20:42] * Tirpitz strikes back! And she's joined by both Konigsberg and Prinz Eugen who both rush up and start pummeling on the berserk Ork!
[20:43] *** Meanwhile, Roon is STILL holding her own and blasting away at EVERYONE, howling in demonic laughter as she does so. Her defenses are still holding, and she's still got enough power to hold out for a while longer as she withstands a full salvo of Battleship-class weapons fire.
[20:44] <Roon> Father?! FATHER!!! LOOK UPON ME AND BE PROUD!!!
[20:45] <Brickfist> ...Oi. She's not right in da 'ead, is she?
[20:46] * SFC Iris Gainsburough suddenly chucks an MKA issue stick grenade at Roon as hard as she can
[20:47] *** The grenade detonates against Roon's shields. Dammit, it looks like she has the same kind of directional ionic shields used by Imperial Knights (which would certainly explain a few things about why her Rig looks like a monstrous cyber-creature instead of an exoskeleton).
[20:48] <Brickfist> AHH! MEDIOCRE!!!
[20:49] * SFC Iris Gainsburough turns to the Queen's Bounty, "STARBOARD CANNONS! FIRE AT THAT BLONDE FREAK!" and points her sword at Roon
[20:50] * Brickfist breaks into a full sprint, BASHING aside Konigsberg and Prinz Eugen (much to their complete astonishment) , and CHARGES at Roon!!! Out of nowhere, he BASHES into Belfast and drags her along!!
[20:50] <Belfast> AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! I'M ON YOUR SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE~!!!!!!!!!! >__<;;;;
[20:51] * Brickfist FLINGS Belfast at Roon, hurling her OVERHAND at the rampaging Battlecruiser-class Sea-Doll!
[20:52] <Belfast> AAAAAAHHHhhHHHHHhhhhhHHHHhhhhHHHhHHhhHHHHHhhhhhhh~!!!!
[20:52] *** The ENTIRE group of Sea-Dolls calling themselves "Royal Navy" just STOPS in utter astonishment.
[20:52] <Durand> .............clearly he does not discern friend from foe.
[20:54] * Roon SMACKS Belfast aside out of the air and sends her into a deep snowdrift.
[20:55] * Brickfist just kept running after he threw Belfast and LEAPS at Roon as she smacked Belfast aside, avoiding her other mecha-limbs and successfully getting in close!
[20:55] * SFC Iris Gainsburough looks to see whereabouts Belfast landed
[20:56] * Roon SNATCHES the Ork with one of her other limbs, SKEWERING him upon it!!
[20:57] *** You see a Belfast-shaped impact upon the snowdrift!
[20:57] * Roon grins fiendishly as she hoists up the skewered Ork closer to her face.
[20:58] <Roon> - YOU INSANE MONSTER!! How did you survive the thrashing I gave you years ago?!?! -
[20:59] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Delta Squad, Team Six! (points to where Belfast landed) Get her out of the snow!
[20:59] <Brickfist> URRRkkkkkKK! I'm 'ere...'cuz Orks iz the toughest an' the STRONGEST!! An' wez ALWAYS ready for anuvver go!
[21:00] * Delta Squad T6 quickly sprints over to Belfast's position
[21:00] * Brickfist suddenly lashes out with the particle-beam-made-club and BASHES Roon in the head hard enough to twist it sideways to an angle that's VERY uncomfortable to look upon!
[21:01] <Belfast> @___@
[21:01] <Roon> X____x
[21:01] * Roon slowly starts to stagger sideways, heavily injured by the blow she just took.
[21:02] * Delta Squad T6 starts digging Belfast out of the snow once they get there
[21:02] * Brickfist falls to the ground, hitting the rocky soil with a hard THUD.
[21:04] *** One of the Carrier-girls of Eagle Union, resplendent with her purple eyes and long silver-white hair, aims her bow-like weapon at Roon.
[21:05] <~> ♦ Everyone...target that Battlecruiser-Doll and FIRE.
[21:06] * The Queen's Bounty aims its starboard cannons at Roon, and proceed to fire shells at her
[21:07] <~> ♦ Royal Navy commencing firing!
[21:08] * SFC Iris Gainsburough instructs the JRP to fire at Roon while Delta Squad's Team Six works at helping Belfast out, the Marines send as much firepower as they can at Roon
[21:08] <~> ♦ Sardenga Empire firing!
[21:08] <~> ♦ Sakura Empire concentrating fire!
[21:08] <~> ♦ Iris Libre firing!
[21:08] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> ♦ Northern Parliament sending fire at that gopnik!
[21:08] <~> ♦ Dragon Empery engaging!
[21:09] <~> ♦ Vichya Dominion targeting and firing!
[21:10] * Roon staggers and shrieks as she takes hit after hit after hit after hit!! Her shields barely withstand the punishment she's taking, then they IMPLODE!!!
[21:12] *** Her Rig EXPLODES as many parts of it overload and succumb to the damage that quickly accumulating. Several of the mecha-limbs she'd been using to move around on are completely destroyed, and she starts to fall over with agonizing slowness that quickly picks up speed.
[21:14] * Roon , still attached to her Rig by her linkages, is pulled down with it as it careens down the side of the hill, rolling over multiple times and bouncing off of the unyielding granite and basalt rock, and finally comes to a halt with a shuddering CRASH that rocks the entire beach.
[21:15] <Roon> father? I'm scared, Father!! Please...? Help me...!
[21:17] * Roon is away: Critical damage sustained. Emergency preservation systems engaged.
[21:17] *** Belfast, on the other hand, is relatively unharmed, but unconscious as well.
[21:21] * Brickfist is also lying motionless on the ground, unmoving and unresponsive. You don't know if he's alive or not, but if he DID die, he died in a matter any Ork would have been proud of - in the heart of a "Right an' Proppa" battle of pure insanity.
[21:23] * Delta Squad T6 tries to wake Belfast up, PFC Niels using salts taken from her pouch
[21:24] *** ALL of the Sea-Dolls on ALL sides suddenly cease moving and stiffen as their core programs start being rewritten and upgraded. The radio channels are filled with the ululating squealing of code.
[21:25] *** Then a synthesized computer voice speaks on all frequencies.
[21:25] <~> ♦ System upload complete. Command authorization and recognition bestowed to organic unit known as Antilzha Langister. Official rank...Shikikan.
[21:26] <~> - To all units of Eisenblut. This is your Kommandant... -
[21:26] <~> - Authentication...complete. Accuracy...zero percent chance of error. -
[21:27] <~> /ANSGT The Dark Angel of Death has at last come. Your Father is no longer lost.
[21:28] <~> - Cease all hostilities and lay down arms. Stand down. -
[21:28] <~> - I repeat. Stand down. -
[21:29] <~> - These are my final orders as your leader. After that, it will be your new Shikikan who will lead you. Obey him, and honor HIS father and YOUR Father, for they are one and the same. -
[21:32] <~> - This is Liana Sullivan, Draugr and former Delmo, Kommandant of Ironblood, standing relieved. -
[21:34] *** All is silent for a few seconds, then you all hear screaming in the distance...
[21:35] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Wha?
[21:35] <HK416> Wait...AnTilZha LANGISTER is in command?!?!??!!?!?
[21:35] <UMP-9> Ooooooooooooooooooooooooo, Negev is gonna LOVE this!!!!
[21:37] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR NOW SINCE I NEED TO BE GETTING TO BED.
[21:37] *** WE'LL CONTINUE WHEN I'M ABLE TO GET ONLINE NEXT TIME.
[21:38] *** UNTIL THEN, GOOD NIGHT TO ALL.
[19:19] *** And we are BACK!!
[19:20] <Chibi-AnTil> D:
[19:20] * Chibi-AnTil is standing in the Kommandant's office, just...dumbfounded.
[19:22] *** On the hololithic displays and data-panels are tons of reports and readouts scrolling across as hundreds of Sea-Dolls have begun acknowledging receipt of their new directives, recognizing AnTilZha Langister as their official Commander.
[19:22] <Chibi-AnTil> I...
[19:22] <Chibi-AnTil> D:
[19:22] * Megan O`Cain looks at Solar, "I thought you..."
[19:23] <Solarchos> Hmmm?
[19:23] <Megan O`Cain> After all the s[BLEEP]t we've been through, I thought you were gonna take command.
[19:28] <Megan O`Cain> Why did Yukari change places?
[19:29] <Solarchos> I thought I was too. Although it seems like SOMEONE ELSE had a different idea.
[19:29] *** Yukari Yakumo [IllusoryBorderHag@EnclaveFedCom.Net (PiratedServer] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:29] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Yukari Yakumo
[19:29] <Yukari Yakumo> ^___^
[19:30] <Capt. David O`Cain> You just love kucking people over, don't you?
[19:31] <Michelle O`Cain> Um, David, I think you meant--
[19:31] <Capt. David O`Cain> I know, Michelle. I know. ~_~
[19:32] <Solarchos> I think this is another "Dammit Yukari" moment.
[19:32] <Yukari Yakumo> Perhaps it is!
[19:32] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:33] <Yukari Yakumo> Poor Liana here certainly wanted my Killer Angel to succeed her, but I do think he's got far too much on his hands as it is just being the Governor-Militant.
[19:34] <Tundra Kits> and being fluffy? :D :D :D :D :D:D::D:D:D:D:DD:D:D:D:D:D:DD:D
[19:35] <Michelle O`Cain> So, um, what now?
[19:37] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:43] <Yukari Yakumo> Hmmm
[19:44] <Yukari Yakumo> First, it's time to retire Liana here.
[19:44] <The Kommandant> ...
[19:45] * The Kommandant looks absolutely miserable. She doesn't look defeated or ashamed. What she looks like is exhausted in a way no mortal could ever comprehend.
[19:47] <Tundra Kits> does she need a fluffy? :D
[19:49] <Yukari Yakumo> As much as it would have been amusing to see my Killer Angel grow his harem even larger, that just wouldn't be fair to his lovely wife. Especially when she's already irritated enough with that Cadia-girl
[19:50] <Michelle O`Cain> Yeah, she's awfully clingy.
[19:52] <Yukari Yakumo> Young Antil, on the other hand...
[19:52] <Yukari Yakumo> It's HIS time to shine. ^___^
[19:53] * Chibi-AnTil looks up at his father.
[19:56] <Chibi-AnTil> What do I do now?
[19:58] <The Kommandant> Simple. You do what you were meant to do. Become what you were born to be.
[19:59] <The Kommandant> - Your father went mad during the war in his desire to protect you. He raised a Legion of Astartes to do so, and that was only the beginning. -
[20:00] <The Kommandant> - What I am now is a pale shadow compared to what he became. -
[20:01] <The Kommandant> - I know you and your siblings will lead the Ghost Foxes one day. Perhaps this will serve to bring you one step closer to that...Chapter Master. -
[20:02] <Yukari Yakumo> Or maybe it's just a completely hilarious conclusion to this aquatic Incident that will result in endless amounts of doujinshi and hentai? After all, little Antil her is becoming a young man!!! :D
[20:05] *** More reports are coming in, this time from the Submarine girls. "Anomalous activity sighted near the wreckage of the "Rock You Like A Hurricane". Architect repair-droids are swarming all over the hull. Investigating will delay our arrival to the Deep Caverns. Your orders?"
[20:07] *** Another report comes in from Chibi-Leady. "There are other things now down here in the Caverns. Detecting movement on long-range sonar. Whatever's happening down here is getting worse. I need help!"
[20:09] <Donovan O`Cain> I don't know about you guys, but s[BLEEP]t's going down now!
[20:09] *** ANOTHER report comes in, this time from Alldrogis Valkyvida. "The Frozen Leviathan is awakening! The ice encasing it has weakened enough that it's cracking and it's beginning to revive. I've made a preliminary analysis of the pustules on it and it's infected with a variation of the original Karar virus that may be unaffected by the Sea-Emperor enzymes. If this thing breaks free and reaches open water..."
[20:10] *** Incoming message from Sea-Doll designate "Warspite". "Your orders, Shikikan?"
[20:11] <Enterprise> ♦ Your orders, Shikikan?
[20:11] <Yamato> ♦ Your orders, Shikikan?
[20:11] <Bismarck> ♦ Father...
[20:12] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> ♦ Orders, comrade Shikikan?
[20:13] <Bismarck> ♦ Ironblood is YOURS to command. Tell us what you desire, and we will comply, even if our bodies lay broken and shattered.
[20:13] * Solarchos looks back at Chibi-AnTil.
[20:13] <Solarchos> I've been teaching you your whole life up until now.
[20:15] * Solarchos closes his eyes for a moment and takes a breath, preparing himself for this moment that's at last come.
[20:16] <Solarchos> Like clay I molded you and in the furnace of battle I forged you. You and your siblings are of iron will and steely muscle. In great armor I clad you and with the mightiest of guns were you armed.
[20:17] * Yukari Yakumo smiles proudly.
[20:18] <Solarchos> You have been untouched by plague and disease, no sickness will blight you. You have tactics, strategies, and machines such that no foe can best you in battle.
[20:19] <Solarchos> And just as these words were told to me long ago, I now tell them to you.
[20:19] <Solarchos> You are the bulwark against the terror. You are the defenders of humanity.
[20:20] <Solarchos>“ You are my Space Marines and you shall know no fear.”
[20:20] <Solarchos> You are ready for this, AnTil. It's not the Ghost Fox Legion but it's a start for you.
[20:21] <Solarchos> You already know all you need to know. Now is the time to put it all into practice.
[20:21] <Chibi-AnTil> >___<

[20:22] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:22] <Chibi-AnTil> ♦ All Submarine girls...ignore the ship for now. Proceed at best speed to the Deep Caverns to assist Chibi-Leady.
[20:23] <Chibi-AnTil> ♦ All other Sea-Dolls, move to the location of the Frozen Leviathan and form a blockade on the water. if it breaks free and tries to escape, drive it back by any means necessary.
[20:23] <Chibi-AnTil> ♦ All Sea-Dolls, transmit current operation status.

[20:30] <Megan O`Cain> Well, what are we waiting for? We've got a Leviathan to stop!

[20:39] <Chibi-AnTil> Dad...will you at least give me advice if I need it?

[20:48] <Solarchos> Return now to Hakugyokurou and the care of Yuyuko Saigyouji. You have served me far longer than you should have, and I have detained you from your rest for too long.
[20:49] * Yukari Yakumo opens a new portal next to the Kommandant.
[20:50] <Yukari Yakumo> The way is open for you. Satori and Shikieki await you as well.
[20:52] * The Kommandant looks back at Solarchos. "I served you to the best of my ability. Every moment."
[20:52] * Megan O`Cain and her brother and cousins give Liana a salute
[20:53] * The Kommandant lets out a loud, lingering sigh as the last of the magicks that bound her are released, and she quickly begins to crumble to dust, until all that remains are a pile of smoldering and glowing cinders and a small cloud of roiling, oily smoke shifting and swirling in the air above the pile.
[20:54] *** The smoke is drawn through the portal, which closes almost immediately after. Yukari opens another portal directly beneath the pile of cinders, teleporting it away.
[20:55] <Yukari Yakumo> That ash was heavily contaminated with Necronium. You don't want to get that on your clothes. And make sure you wash your hands before eating anything!
[20:55] <Megan O`Cain> Noted.
[21:12] <Solarchos> Megan, what's the status of the MKN forces planetside?
[21:13] <Megan O`Cain> Right now, the Rangers and Marines are fixing the Queen's Bounty while air support from the Airwolves and Skyhawks are refueling and rearming. As for the MKN, they haven't been able to do s[BLEEP]t except recieve and transmit Morse Code, and transfered planes and helos to the Normandy.
[21:15] <Donovan O`Cain> That planetary shield's been a pain in the ass since we got planetside.
[21:16] <Solarchos> How are you doing for supplies?
[21:17] <Chibi-AnTil> Speaking of supplies, I'm picking up multiple requests for resupply and repairs. Especially from Ironblood.
[21:17] <Donovan O`Cain> I thought we did alright managing our supplies. Ate so many fish, I thought we were gonna grow gills.
[21:19] <Capt. David O`Cain> The Queen's Bounty could use a reload on shells. Used up a LOT against Ironblood.
[21:21] * Chibi-Nat ZIPS up and POINTS at Donovan. "FISH IS GOOD FOOD!!!" >:f
[21:21] <Chibi-Nat> :P
[21:21] <Donovan O`Cain> Hey, I'm not denying that, Natalia. I was trying to make a joke.
[21:22] * Chibi-Nat zips off, trying to find and collect up all of the Tundra Kits inside Ironblood's base.
[21:22] <Chibi-AnTil> Alex, are Gwen and Fiona with us? We should have them here as well.
[21:23] <Chibi-Alex> I'll ask Yukari.
[21:24] <Chibi-AnTil> In the meantime, Captain O'Cain? Bring your ship here to this base and we'll try to resupply you. I'm also messaging all Sea-Dolls to begin cycling back here for rearming and spot repairs.
[21:25] <Capt. David O`Cain> Which O`Cain you talkin' to? There's two of us.
[21:25] <Megan O`Cain> Indeed. You want me or David?
[21:29] <Chibi-AnTil> Mr David. ^__^;
[21:30] <Chibi-AnTil> Also, if you can, transport any Sea-Dolls that are too heavily damaged to transport themselves.
[21:31] <Chibi-AnTil> The rest of the Sea-Dolls should prioritize their rearmament based on least-depleted first. I'm not sure how big the stockpiles at this base here are, so I'm going to try and stretch them out until we know for sure.
[21:32] <Capt. David O`Cain> Sure, Antil. There's a few Airwolf-Ts that could carry, and the rest may have to be on the top deck of the Bounty.
[21:34] <Chibi-AnTil> Please make it happen. We need to start repairs on them as soon as possible.
[21:36] * Capt. David O`Cain relays the order to Iris
[21:39] * SFC Iris Gainsburough acknowledges the order, and has the Airwolves take to the air while the Rangers and Marines board the Queen's Bounty after a combined effort to fix her up
[21:46] * Chibi-AnTil begins examining ALL of the available data on the various situations, trying to formulate some kind of plan on how to proceed.
[21:46] * Chibi-AnTil looks at his father, then at his sisters and brother.
[21:46] * Chibi-AnTil then looks at everyone else who's with him.
[21:46] <Chibi-AnTil> ~___~
[21:47] <Chibi-AnTil> O___O
[21:47] <Chibi-AnTil> I'm ready to do this, but this will only succeed if we all work together.
[21:49] <Michelle O`Cain> I'm sure it will!
[21:57] <Chibi-AnTil> Good. Now...ENGAGE!!
[21:58] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR THE NIGHT!
[21:58] *** We'll continue some more tomorrow. In the meantime, thank you all and good night.
[19:24] *** AND WE ARE BACK!!!
[19:25] * Chibi-Leady waits anxiously in the Deep Caverns (otherwise known as the DeepDownDarkDeepDown).
[19:26] * Chibi-Leady cringes as another surge of electromagnetic energy washes through the place, causing the Shadow Leviathans deeper within to shriek and writhe. They're getting ANGRY.
[19:26] * A few Descos are headed to give Leady some assistance.
[19:27] * Chibi-Leady makes another PING on her imaging sonar as she tries to create a 3-dimensional map of the area.
[19:27] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ How long before those reinforcements arrive?
[19:28] * SFC Iris Gainsburough is commanding the Queen's Bounty in David's stead, taking the crew and however many Iron Blood Sea-Dolls toward the iceberg base
[19:30] *** The scream rings out again, echoed by quite a few groans, whimpers, and sobs.
[19:31] * Megan O`Cain and her kin are on their way to the docks to meet up with the incoming fleet
[19:31] *** Almost ALL of the Ironblood Dolls are in bad shape, but a surprising number of the other Dolls from the other factions have been damaged as well. Ironblood gave as good as they got, and upwards of 30% of the attackers received varying degrees of damage.
[19:32] *** One of the Royal Navy Sea-Dolls skates up to the Queen's Bounty and stops near it. "AHOY! REQUESTING PERMISSION TO TRANSPORT ADDITIONAL SERIOUS CASES."
[19:33] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Who calls?
[19:36] *** Hovering just above the water is a somewhat small but proud Sea-Doll
[19:37] * Sea-Doll is now known as Warspite
[19:37] <Warspite> Unit designate Warspite, acting commander of the Royal Navy flotilla due to the current circumstances
[19:38] <Warspite> Our leader, Queen Elizabeth, sustained crippling injuries during the battle. I've had to step in.
[19:39] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Well met, Warspite. What do you need?
[19:39] *** Several more Royal Navy Sea-Dolls are approaching, carrying with them a few more damaged Dolls. One of them is the slim and child-like Queen Elizabeth (who looks like she got the CRAP blasted out of her). Belfast is among them too, one of her arms bent at a very painful-looking angle.
[19:41] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> And I thought we had it rough.
[19:41] *** Another elegant-looking Doll, identified as Hood, got the crap blown out of her too. Apparently by a single salvo from Bismarck.
[19:42] <Warspite> Royal Navy took many injuries. If you're bringing the severe cases of Ironblood to their main base, we request to transport our severe cases there too. As it is we...we have NO resupply and repair here. None of us do.
[19:43] <Warspite> We responded to the distress calls knowing that we were being sent into a region without logistics.
[19:44] <Warspite> The Bastion Defense Force used the transport shuttles to bring us, and can ferry us back for repairs, but transport back would result in a turnaround of several hours at the minimum
[19:46] <Warspite> We don't know if Ironblood's service facilities are adequate to handle all of us, but they can at least help.
[19:47] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Understood, lass. The Iron Blood base is the closest one to what is called Island base. It would be best to take them along. Moon Kingdom Airwolf transports, and the planetary landing vehicle have also taken some of the injured onboard.
[19:49] *** Meanwhile, an old-looking Orca transport shuttle touches down near the beach, and a few dozen soldiers begin to pour out onto the island. Holy crap...all of them are wearing Van Saar hostile environment suits and ALL of them look like they're over FIFTY. But they're all equipped for battle and they seem to know what they're doing!
[19:51] *** Eisenblut...starts acting even weirder when they see the aging Guardsmen. All of the Guardsmen have active biometric tags set to broadcast. The signal is an old Federation IFF code that hasn't been used in almost 15 years!
[19:56] *** Cripes...they're part of the old Necromundan 8112th regiment. 5th Company...most of which disappeared during the Last Battle of the Zealot War and was never found.
[19:57] <Donovan O`Cain> Whoa. Solar, you may wanna look at this!
[20:00] <Warspite> It is also why we carry this.
[20:01] * Warspite was carrying a spear-like flag with her, much like Bismarck had. Unrolling it, she reveals that it's NOT the standard of the Royal Navy. It's the Standard of the 5th Company of the 8112th!
[20:02] <Warspite> We seek to return this to its rightful owners, as well as reunite those worthy veterans with their regiment and the Federation.
[20:03] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> I see.
[20:07] * Belfast is laid down with everyone else, and BOY does she look a mess. @___@
[20:08] <Bismarck> ♦ FATHER~!!!! Father where are you?! Please come to us now and let us see you at last!!
[20:09] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> OI! Be patient, will ya?
[20:15] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:15] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:16] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:17] *** The other Dolls of Ironblood are joining in, too.
[20:18] <Durand> (My my...)
[20:18] <U-47> ♦ Will you...take us to him soon?
[20:20] * U-47 is laying on the deck of the Queen's Bounty, looking an absolute wreck. Her flesh covering as been ripped in multiple places, leaking realistic blood, and both of her legs were rendered non-functional during the fight. Still, she fought like crazy until the very end.
[20:21] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> (Geez...)
[20:22] * SFC Iris Gainsburough gets on the radio, trying to get a hold of Solar, "Hey, when are you coming out?"
[20:22] <Solarchos> ♦ Where do you need me the most?
[20:23] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> ♦ At or near the Queen's Bounty. You got Sea-Dolls calling for you.
[20:24] <Solarchos> ♦ I'm helping the Kits do a quick survey of this base's stockpiles and resources. Overall, Antil's not doing a bad job of trying to get a feel of the situation.
[20:25] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:26] * Z-23 is laying on the beach, her head still ringing from the shot she took from Springfield and sees the Tundra Kits staring at them all.
[20:26] <Z-23> O___o
[20:26] <UMP-45> :3
[20:26] <UMP-9> :3
[20:26] <HK416> >:[
[20:26] <G11> ~___~
[20:27] <UMP-45> What are you little foxes thinking of right now?
[20:27] <Solarchos> ♦ If it's vital I can have Yukari teleport me over to you.
[20:27] <Tundra Kits> fluffiness :D
[20:28] <Tundra Kits> and other tundra kits that the bad ones took :O
[20:29] <UMP-9> I just found out that the other tundra kit who were taken by Ironblood are all safe and sound. :D
[20:29] <HK416> Tundra Kits! I command you to ATTACK and PUNISH Eisenblut for their actions!
[20:30] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> ♦ Just be aware they've been calling out to you for a while.
[20:30] <Tundra Kits> >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 >:3
[20:30] <Z-23> VAS?!?!
[20:30] <Tundra Kits> get forest bretheren, they be magicval :D
[20:30] <Z-23> Nien! Nien!! NIEN!!!
[20:31] <Tundra Kits> 9! 9!! 9!!! 9 Taioled Kits :D
[20:33] <Tundra Kits> we hear they make you kits for hurting friends :D
[20:34] * Z-23 tries to crawl away, as do several over Ironblood members!
[20:36] * Forest Kits are blocking the way :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:36] <Forest Kits> be a kit, be a kit, be a be a be a kit! :D
[20:37] <Koln> D:
[20:38] * Forest Kits start chanting the same phrase repeatedly.
[20:38] <Gneisenau> Aiiiieeeeee~!
[20:39] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> And we got kits being kits.
[20:39] <Deutschland> You don't scare me, you talking mange-balls!!!!!
[20:39] * Deutschland whips out that huge hand-cannon of hers and takes aim! >:D
[20:40] * A Forest Kit pops out of the hand canon :3
[20:40] <A Forest Kit> be a kit, be a kit, be a be a be a kit! :D
[20:41] * Z-24 staggers to her feet and flexes her remaining arm...good GOD those combat claws are like SWORDS!!!
[20:41] * Forest Kits all continue chanting, some working their magical prowess :3
[20:41] <Z-24> You would threaten an ARCH-DEMON of the seas?! Such impudence!!
[20:42] * A strange portal opens, and someone familiar steps through!
[20:42] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:42] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Solarchos
[20:42] <Forest Kits> it be no threat, it be fluffiness :D
[20:43] <Solarchos> WHAT is going on here?
[20:44] *** The Ironblood Sea-Dolls just...freeze.
[20:44] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> (Now they shut up.)
[20:46] * U-47 is frozen too, her eyes wide.
[20:48] * Forest Kits clamber over to Solar, as do the Tundra Kits, chittering and chattering about their predicaments and the oens of friends.
[20:48] <U-47> Father...?
[20:49] <Bismarck> :O
[20:49] * Bismarck sits up and starts to pull herself over to where he is.
[20:49] <Friedrich der Grosse> Vater?!
[20:50] * Friedrich der Grosse starts to move closer too. She got rather badly bashed during the fight, with huge chunks of her outer skin blown away, making her look like a damaged T-800 series Terminator.
[20:51] <Z-23> Is that really...?!
[20:52] * Megan O`Cain takes stock of what's going on at the docks alongside David
[20:52] <Forest Kits> armyman :D
[20:56] * Ironblood SURGES towards Solarchos, squealing like overjoyed teenagers!!
[20:57] <Forest Kits> can we turn people who hurt tundra kits into kits themselves? :D
[20:58] <Solarchos> You've done that before, haven't you?
[21:01] <Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[21:01] <Forest Kits> it be effective :D
[21:03] * Bismarck nearly KNOCKS Solarchos over as she glomps him from the side, wailing and sobbing!
[21:03] <Bismarck> T___T
[21:05] <~> I think that is not necessary, little fuches.
[21:05] <Megan O`Cain> Hoo boy...
[21:07] <Forest Kits> they scare tundra bretheren, even with Anti-Fluffy! :O
[21:13] *** Oooooh boy...SHE just walked up
[21:13] <Prinz Eugen> That is just not fair, little fuches.
[21:14] <Prinz Eugen> We made sure to keep you safe when we brought you back to our base, and even went to great lengths to see to it that you were taken care of!
[21:15] <Prinz Eugen> You even pounced upon Admiral Hipper! And little Z-23 in the most adorable ways.
[21:16] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[21:16] * Prinz Eugen barely sustained any damage beyond some superficial injuries.
[21:16] <Prinz Eugen> And...Anti-Fluffy? Vas est dat?
[21:16] * Forest Kits trill at Eugen :3
[21:17] <Capt. David O`Cain> [Someone's sure smug.]
[21:17] <Tundra Kits> we see bismark have something Anti-Fluffy in base :O
[21:17] <Megan O`Cain> [Take it easy.]
[21:22] <Prinz Eugen> Oh, you mean der Kommandant?
[21:23] <Prinz Eugen> You met her? Wasn't she simply amazing! One of Vater's most loyal followers and touched by his divinity!
[21:23] <Prinz Eugen> Such POWER!! You were frightened by her?
[21:23] <Tundra Kits> dappa :<
[21:24] <Prinz Eugen> Ohhhh, do not feel like that.
[21:25] * Prinz Eugen scoops up a Tundra Kit and tucks it into those amble breasts of hers to cradle it. "All is well, is it now?"
[21:26] <Prinz Eugen> And besides, I do not believe anyone threw you inside, did they? Except maybe for ONE person who wasn't appropriately appreciative of the fluffiness.
[21:27] * Tundra Kits nods :<
[21:28] <Prinz Eugen> And that would be my sister, Admiral Hipper.
[21:28] <Admiral Hipper> ♦ VAS???!!!
[21:29] <Prinz Eugen> So if you must punish someone it should be her! :D
[21:29] * Forest Kits peer at Hipper o__o
[21:29] * Prinz Eugen takes the little Kit out of her cleavage and quickly places it on top of Admiral Hipper's head.
[21:30] <Admiral Hipper> D:
[21:31] <Forest Kits> be a kit, be a kit, be a be a be a kit!
[21:31] <Forest Kits> you no like fluffy, you BE fluffy :D
[21:32] <Admiral Hipper> AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! FATHER, SAVE ME~!!!!
[21:33] * Admiral Hipper runs away, with the Tundra Kit still clinging to her head!
[21:33] * Prinz Eugen smiles smugly.
[21:34] * Forest Kits chase after Hipper while chanting!
[21:36] <Megan O`Cain> And away they go.
[21:36] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yup.
[21:39] <Prinz Eugen> ^__^
[21:40] * Prinz Eugen looks infinitely smug now.
[21:40] <Prinz Eugen> You see, Father. I can do all sorts of things to help you. Just ask and be amazed by my competence. ^__~
[21:42] * Little forest Kit squeak trills :D
[21:45] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR THE NIGHT!
[21:45] *** We'll continue some more tomorrow, but in the meantime please have a good night and take care.
[19:13] *** And we are back for more!!!!
[19:13] *** Scene-switch - underwater, as the Sub-Dolls continue their steady descent deeper down into the ocean.
[19:17] * Capt. David O`Cain is tending to the Queen's Bounty with his platoon in the mean time
[19:19] *** David, as the Queen's Bounty gets underway, you notice what looks like a meteor shower heading your way!!
[19:19] *** No, not meteors. You've seen this before. DROP POD ASSAULT!!
[19:20] <Capt. David O`Cain> INCOMING DROP PODS!
[19:21] *** A dozen drop pods streak down, quickly decelerate, then touch down with loud THUDS. The side doors quickly fold open revealing...!!
[19:22] *** Some of the drop pods were loaded with power cells, tools, and materials used for performing field repairs on G&K and Sangvis Ferri T-Dolls!
[19:23] <Megan O`Cain> It's a supply drop!
[19:23] * Megan O`Cain and Michelle begin to take inventory of the supplies
[19:24] * Sovetskaya Rossiya sees the pods, "Where did those come from? Did someone call in an unauthorized drop?"
[19:24] *** The other drop pods were carrying people! Specifically, you see quite a few Kappa-girls from Gensokyo (Nitori just might be among them!), several Federation tech-mages, and a few familiar faces - namely the Kit's cousins Gwen and Fiona, as well as Squad 404's specialist technicians Seele and Deele, and...
[19:25] *** Ouroboros has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:25] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Ouroboros *** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[19:25] *** ~Agent has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:25] <@spiritflame> konbanwa ~Agent *** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[19:25] <~Agent> Salutations
[19:26] <Ouroboros> Sangvis Ferri has finally arrived!!
[19:26] <Donovan O`Cain> Hey there.
[19:26] * Ouroboros looks around appraisingly.
[19:27] <Ouroboros> Hmph...I can see that these Dolls, ESPECIALLY these ones (indicates Ironblood) are DEFINITELY based upon us. Looks like the rest of them just MIGHT have been patterned after the sub-standard G&K designs.
[19:28] *** Seele and Deele immediately get to work on repairing and fixing the damaged T-Dolls, starting with Squad 404 (naturally).
[19:30] *** Some of the Ironblood girls shift uncomfortably as the Kappa close in on them, looking EXTREMELY eager to examine every part of their bodies!
[19:32] * Fiona starts using tech-magic (specifically the Repair spell) to begin making minor repairs on the least-damaged Sea-Dolls.
[19:33] * Sovetskaya Rossiya has a hearty laugh at Ironblood's expense while sharing a canteen of vodka with a fellow Sea-Doll from Northern Parliament
[19:33] * Gwen gets to work on treating the injuries of any people who got hurt during the fight since she's an apprentice Apothecary, not an apprentice Tech-Marine.
[19:34] <~Agent> Ouroboros and I were requested to assist with organizing logistics here. The rest of Sangvis Ferri AND Griffon&Kryuger are deploying at the Aurora Guyot to assist with the situation there.
[19:41] <Megan O`Cain> What's going on there?
[19:42] *** Meanwhile, the twelve submarine dolls continue their descent. Their environment shifts and changes as they leave one biome and enter a new one.
[19:43] *** Where the water have been a little murky before in the geothermal shallows surrounding the Island, now the water is turning a deep, deep blue. The ocean floor slopes sharply into cliffs, and ahead can be seen strangely-glowing coral formations and more of 4546B's unique undersea plants.
[19:44] <Ouroboros> So far the attacking Warpers have remained in the deeper parts of the ocean, but it may just be a matter of time before they start attacking the other outposts.
[19:45] <Ouroboros> Cannon Island is heavily reinforced and built into a huge basalt mountain, so it should be safe for now, but the real concern is Natalia Island since it's a floating bioform.
[19:46] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[19:52] * A young girl in a white coat and hat is hugging a Tundra Kit or two as her rig is getting some repairs
[19:55] <Ouroboros> But the situation could escalate if the Warpers get even more aggressive.
[19:56] <Megan O`Cain> Let's hope it doesn't get that far.
[19:56] * Murmansk walks up to Sovetskaya Rossiya with a Tundra Kit in her arms, "Aren't they adorable?" ^_^
[19:57] *** The submarine girls dive deeper. Now they're heading for what looks like a MASSIVE jellyfish that's anchored itself directly over a geothermal vent, its feeding orifice wide open as it feasts upon the continuous plume of rich silt fountaining up out of the vent.
[19:57] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Heh, they certainly are fuzzy comrades. (takes a swig of vodka from a canteen)
[20:01] *** The Submarine Dolls slow to a halt as they seem something ELSE circling near their destination... Chelicerate!!!
[20:06] <~> ♦ Torricelli to allied command. Chelicerate spotted. Analysis of the situation predicts a high likelihood that it will present a danger if we approach too quickly all at once.
[20:09] <~> ♦ I-58 here. Recommending a stealthy approach. If we move one or two at a time, and wait for the Chelicerate to move away when we start, we can reach the fissures at the base of the Vent Garden's tentacles and go through before it notices.
[20:10] <~> ♦ Albacore here! Forget that! We don't have time! Go hard, go fast, and get in as quickly as possible. If it causes trouble...torpedoes away!
[20:17] <Torricelli> ♦ Are any additional forces available to assist?
[20:26] *** Attention - second wave of drop pods incoming. Included among them is a passenger identified as U-556.
[20:26] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Hm? There's more?
[20:28] <U-556> ♦ Attention Eisenblut. This is U-556. I am rejoining you after having visited the Halls of Our Glorious Father and will join the rest of our sisters in battle! I know my mount was left behind at the Island. Is it still there and intact?
[20:36] * Sovetskaya Rossiya stands up, and gives a woman with long blue hair a nudge, "Oi, I say we give Great Leader (referring to Solar) a chat. What do you say?"
[20:39] <Solarchos> Hmmm?
[20:40] <~> ♦ UMP-45 here. We found that weird "mount" of yours. We studied it, but we didn't take it apart or anything. It's still here at the island.
[20:42] <Little forest Kit> :3
[20:49] <U-556> ♦ Good, keep it there. To the other Dolls of the Submarine fleet, please wait for me. I'm coming to assist!
[20:49] <U-37> ....
[20:49] * U-37 starts pulling herself along the deck of the Queen's Bounty to the stern of the boat and tries to climb over the railing.
[20:52] <U-37> Must...assist. Must fight...for our Father...
[20:55] *** Another Ironblood sub-doll, U-73, starts to crawl along the deck, even though she's practically missing a leg (it got kicked so hard that it bent over 60-degrees in a direction it was never designed to bend).
[20:56] <U-73> This daughter must live up to the expectations of Father...and step up as Big Sister to our new Shikikan!!
[20:58] *** Soon ALL of the Ironblood Submarine Dolls, regardless of their condition, are trying to dive overboard!
[21:00] * Capt. David O`Cain turns to the Sub-Dolls, "Hey! You're in no condition to fight! Get yourselves repaired first!"
[21:01] <Forest Kits> :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O :O
[21:02] <Forest Kits> dive overboard and you all abandon your daddy! :D
[21:06] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan try to use telekinesis to bring the Ironblood Sub-Dolls to land, and bring them towards the repair units
[21:13] <U-73> ...
[21:14] * U-37 slumps to the ground, looking extremely sad.
[21:16] * Sovetskaya Rossiya takes another swig from her canteen, and gives her sister with long blue hair a nudge, "Let's talk with Great Leader. Up for it?"
[21:19] * Sovetskaya Belorussiya elegently sips a drink "..very well, if you insist"
[21:20] *** Sadly, we need to pause here for the night since it's late on my end. We shall continue with more of the adventure tomorrow. Take care all.
[19:12] *** WE HAVE RETURNED TO THE ISLAND!!!!!
[19:14] * Solarchos is still being swarmed by the Ironblood girls, who've ALL lost their usual steely demeanor and are now acting like a bunch of teenaged daughters overjoyed that their beloved father has returned home, behaving much like family members of a veteran finally coming back from a dangerous overseas deployment.
[19:15] * Bismarck is clutching him around the waist and wailing like a young child.
[19:16] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Megan O`Cain is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[19:16] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:16] <Megan O`Cain> Boy, talk about 180.
[19:17] <Megan O`Cain> One minute they were hellbent to kill us, now they're softies for Solar.
[19:18] <Bismarck> VAAAAATEEEEEEEER~!!!! TT_____TT
[19:20] <Forest Kits> fluuuuuufffffffffyyyyyyyy! :D
[19:20] *** Even ROON has begun to pull herself over...or at least her body from the hips up considering both legs were destroyed right at the hips. :D
[19:21] * Prinz Heinrich hugs Father from behind, laughing ecstatically!
[19:22] * Friedrich der Grosse has a particularly excited grin on her face as she carefully closes her clawed-gauntleted arms around Father and draws him in for the warmest and gentlest of embraces.
[19:23] <Karlsruhe > Is it true we have other siblings now?! :D
[19:24] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Those cykas. :P
[19:24] *** Z-24 leans in extremely close and bends down towards Father, presenting her head for pattings! "Praise me, Father! Praise me praise me praise me!!!"
[19:26] <~> ♦ Peter Strasser reporting. Weser, Graf Zeppelin and I have returned to the Fleet Base for repairs and rearmament. There are other Van Saar people here! It's wonderful to see!!
[19:26] <~> ♦ One of them is...EEEEeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeEEEEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!
[19:26] * Durand chuckles at this..... all the while he's busy recording this for laughs later.
[19:27] * Sovetskaya Rossiya walks over to Solarchos, knocking Prinz Eugen out of the way as she opens her arms, "Great Leader, welcome!"
[19:28] <~> ♦ There is a young fuche-frau here!!! With long black hair and three tails!!!!
[19:28] * Solarchos looks back at Sovetskaya Rossiya. "Greetings to you as well. And you are?"
[19:30] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Sovetsky Soyuz-class battleship Sovetsksya Rossiya of Northern Parliament at your service. (salutes)
[19:31] <Solarchos> I had no idea there were so many of you Sea-Dolls here. In fact, I had no idea you all even existed until recently.
[19:32] *** The aging Van Saar soldiers have begun to gather around Solarchos and everyone else, looking at the Governor-Militant intently.
[19:33] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Sea-Dolls? Pffft, that is old name for us. We're Kansen, Great Leader! And a proud lot at that, blyat!
[19:33] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Isn't that, right, Belorussiya?
[19:34] <Sovetskaya Belorussiya> indeed *sips a drink elegently*
[19:34] <Solarchos> Kansen?
[19:37] * UMP-45 and UMP-9 are both looking at the Dolls of the Northern Parliament and giggling.
[19:37] <UMP-9> "Blyat"? Are they familiar with Boris at all?
[19:37] <UMP-45> AK-47 and the rest of Squad Vodka are going to LOOOOOOOVE them!
[19:39] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> We are warship girls, Great Leader. More appropriate than Sea-Doll.
[19:40] <Sovetskaya Belorussiya> do not, as you say, lump us in with that.....common vessal
[19:41] * Sovetskaya Rossiya offers Solarchos a canteen, "Finest vodka you'll ever have."
[19:45] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:46] * Solarchos takes an experimental sip.
[19:46] <Sovetskaya Belorussiya> so...we do we strike against the enemy
[19:47] * Sovetskaya Rossiya has given Solar some strong vodka
[19:47] <Forest Kits> you all get to be wrapped in fluffiness :D
[19:48] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> I think Murmansk is doing that already, comrades.
[19:49] <Solarchos> The strikes will begin once my eldest son has finished devising a strategy and the rearmament is complete.
[19:50] <Solarchos> AnTil is "Shikikan" now. I have faith in his abilities despite his youth. He's been training for this sort of thing for most of his life.
[19:50] <Sovetskaya Belorussiya> Murmansk?..I should have known
[19:52] * Solarchos sees the Van Saar soldiers. As one, the aging Guardsmen all salute proudly.
[19:53] <Random Guardsman> Dorran Nomback, sir. Acting-captain of the remainder of 5th Company, Necromundan 8112th. Reporting in for the first time in...however long.
[19:54] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> By the way, (points to the jet planes) those look like Siren planes yet not at the same time.
[19:54] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:55] <Solarchos> Please excuse me, Rossiya.
[19:56] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Sure, Great Leader.
[19:56] * Solarchos steps up to Acting-captain Nomback...and does NOT return the man's salute. Instead, he extends his hand out to the old soldier to shake it.
[19:56] <Solarchos> Welcome BACK, Guardsman. Welcome back ALL of you.
[20:00] *** The old soldiers smile back in relief. About the same time the children are all brought out of the caves by Reisen and Hatate. The expressions that appear on everyone's faces is heartwarming to say the least as two groups of survivors meet for the first time in over a decade.
[20:02] <Peter Strasser> ♦ Update!!! The little fuche-frau's name is Catriona!! She's one of Vater's biological children with Mother!!! All of their children are what are known as "Kitsune"!!! They are all simply adorable!!
[20:03] *** Within the ranks of the Sea-Dolls of the Sakura Empire, several sets of fox-ears and fluffy tails suddenly perk up at hearing that message!
[20:08] * Admiral Hipper staggers down the beach, flailing her arms as she tries in vain to remove the Facehugger Kit from her head.
[20:09] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Comrade Shikikan is a kitsune? Who knew?
[20:11] * Prinz Eugen knocks Sovetstaya Rossiya out of the way and resumes her previous place in front of Solarchos. "Forgive me, Father. I should have been better prepared for boorish interlopers to intrude in our reunion."
[20:12] <Prinz Heinrich> >:P @ Sovetskaya Rossiya.
[20:17] <Konigsberg> >:D
[20:17] * Konigsberg CRACKS that riding crop!
[20:19] <Solarchos> <__<;;;
[20:21] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> What do you wish to do with Ironblood, Great Leader? They did attack allies. I say to the gulag with the lot.
[20:24] <Sovetskaya Belorussiya> shall we wipe them from the face of the universe
[20:25] <Tirpitz> We served our Father with the utmost of loyalty and devotion!
[20:26] <Gneisenau> And we stayed true to the teachings that helped us to endure these long years.
[20:26] * Solarchos holds up his hand to silence everyone.
[20:28] * Capt. David O`Cain was about to fire a shot, but Megan and Donovan stop him
[20:28] <Solarchos> Given the fact that you Warship Girls (gives a slight nod to Rossiya) are cyborgs ultimately driven and influenced by your programming, Ironblood, like the REST of you, cannot be held fully responsible for your actions long ago.
[20:29] <Solarchos> After all, from what I've studied about the history of this place, you ALL went genocidal when the Last Command infected you.
[20:29] <Acting-Captain Nomback> More than that.
[20:31] <Acting-Captain Nomback> The Sea-Dolls of the Azur Lane attacked the Last Bastion long ago. It's probably the reason why Ironblood didn't know they were still alive. Their search and destroy mission, the Azur Storm, failed to ever return.
[20:32] <Acting-Captain Nomback> We defeated and destroyed them all: Eagle Union, Royal Navy, and all the way down to Northern Parliament here. The last of them fell to the guns of the Necromundan 8112th
[20:33] <Acting-Captain Nomback> Afterwards, they were completely reconstructed and reprogrammed. I'm guessing no such thing was done for Ironblood.
[20:35] <Solarchos> It's my decision that the Dolls of Ironblood will serve penance. They will also be thoroughly examined by the other AIs of the Fleet to ensure no trace of the Last Command remains.
[20:36] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Other AIs?
[20:45] <Solarchos> The voidships of the Fleet.
[20:46] <Solarchos> Specifically Hellesponte, Defender of Cadia and the Aika Sumeragi
[20:54] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:54] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:56] <Solarchos> Hellesponte-AI has worked with the G&K T-Dolls in the past to purge them of the Last Command. Her experience should prove valuable in determining what should be done with Ironblood.
[20:59] <Z-23> SPARE US, FATHER!!
[21:00] <Prinz Heinrich> PLEASE DON'T DISCARD US!!
[21:04] <Bismarck> WE'LL DO ANYTHING TO ATONE IN YOUR EYES!!!
[21:05] * Solarchos loses his balance and falls beneath the unstoppable sUpErIoR tEcHnOlOgY of Ironblood!!
[21:06] *** And time for me to get to bed since I'm falling asleep on my end. Good night everyone. We'll pick things up again tomorrow.
[20:08] *** We're back for a little bit! But a little bit of fun is better than none!
[20:09] * Solarchos fails as he's pulled down by a bunch of Sea-Dolls-become-Teenagers!!
[20:12] <Little Forest Kit> :3
[20:13] * Solarchos tries to extract himself, but a couple of the Ironblood girls make him trip and fall down again.
[20:13] *** Everyone is watching this with a mixture of amusement and shock.
[20:18] <UMP-9> XD
[20:19] * Sovetskaya Rossiya tries to help Solar out of the pile, "Oy pizdec. Iron Blood sure got to you fast."
[20:19] <UMP-45> If MDR was here she'd be taking all kinds of photos to upload onto MeTube and ButtBook
[20:20] * Z-23 quickly reaches up and smacks Rossiya's arm away, then stands protectively in front of Father. The side of her head is still a damaged mess too, giving her a rather creepy appearance.
[20:20] * The Forest and Tundra Kits start SWARMING towards Solar and the Ironblood girls :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:21] <Z-23> Do not touch Father!! You are NOT one of the Daughters of the Onryo! How...
[20:21] <Z-23> <__<
[20:21] <Z-23> O___O
[20:21] <Solarchos> Uh oh...
[20:21] <Prinz Eugen> Oh dear...
[20:21] <Prinz Heinrich> :D
[20:22] * Admiral Hipper FINALLY pulls off the Facehugger Kit from her head, then sees the SWARM quickly bearing down on her!
[20:24] * Capt. David O`Cain and a few Rangers finally take a seat as they take a break from repairs and reloading, and then proceed to try singing a little
[20:28] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> HEEEEEEEEEEEEEE :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:28] * Burroughs is watching this thanks to Durand.... and is laughing her ass off.
[20:28] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> we be FRIENDS of Onryo kids! :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:34] *** Ironblood attempts to protect Father from the SWARM, using their bodies!!
[20:37] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:37] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:37] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[20:41] <Megan O`Cain> Geez, that's a lot.
[20:41] * Ironblood is OVERWHELMED!!!
[20:41] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3
[20:42] * Ironblood is overwhelmed as badly as the Orc hordes in "Return of the King" when the Ride of the Rohirrim happened!
[20:44] * Prinz Heinrich laughs out loud as she's engulfed by the fluffiness!
[20:46] <Admiral Hipper> Ahhhhhhhhh! Not again!!
[20:47] * Admiral Hipper tries to crawl away but gets dragged back inside!
[20:47] <UMP-45> Oh dear! This is quite troublesome!
[20:47] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> The fluffiness prevails :D
[20:47] * Murmansk offers a few Kits some sprats, "Hungry, little comrades?"
[20:51] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> yuppa :D
[20:51] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> Dappa :D
[20:52] <HK416> What are you feeding these Foxes over there?
[20:53] <Murmansk> Sprats. ^_^
[20:56] * Sovetskaya Rossiya tries to help Solar up onto his feet along with aid from a beauty with short, blue hair and fur-trimmed boots
[20:59] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Going to be alright, Great Leader?
[21:00] <Solarchos> I believe so
[21:01] <Solarchos> I'm getting the impression that dealing with Ironblood is going to be as awkward as dealing with Cadia-AI sometimes
[21:01] <Blue haired woman> Is she clingy as well, comrade Governor?
[21:08] <Solarchos> Like you wouldn't believe...and Inu-Kit's NOT fond of her because of that.
[21:10] <Blue haired woman> Hehehe. She's the jealous type, hm?
[21:14] <Solarchos> Cadia-AI is protective.
[21:14] <Solarchos> Inu-Kit is a Nine-tailed Foxwoman. She's a very devoted and protective wife and mother.
[21:14] <Blue haired woman> I meant this Inu-Kit.
[21:17] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> inukit be langisters mama :D :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[21:18] <Solarchos> Inu-Kit is a little bit jealous at times, yes. Kitsune-onna are like that.
[21:19] *** Suddenly, someone else starts approaching the biggest group of people.
[21:19] * Someone is now known as U-556
[21:20] <U-556> Vater! I have arrived and am ready to assist my cousins under the sea!
[21:20] <U-556> Show me where my Shark is and I will join them fearlessly!
[21:21] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> WE BE YOUR SHARK! >:D
[21:21] <Blue haired woman> I see. Oh, by the way, comrade Governor. I am Chapayev-class light cruiser Chapayev. An honor and pleasure to be at your service.
[21:21] <The Forest and Tundra Kits> :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[21:23] <U-556> Uh, Nien. I am looking for my submarine mount. ^__^;
[21:24] <Solarchos> Hello, Chapayev. I'll be counting on you in the coming battle.
[21:24] *** And pause here for the night. We'll continue more and go underwater tomrrow!
[21:26] *** Until then, good night and take care.
[19:16] *** Meanwhile....
[19:19] *** Kagerou Imaizumi has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:19] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Kagerou Imaizumi
[19:21] * Kagerou Imaizumi coughs and shudders as she fitfully and tenuously regains consciousness again. Her hostile environment suit was upgraded with an auto-med system, pirated by Nitori herself from Astartes power armor. As long as the chemicals and power remains steady, it can stabilize her condition and keep her from dying.
[19:22] * Kagerou Imaizumi sees that Al-An's body is gone now, and the control room of the Fabricator is much dimmer. All of the power is being diverted elsewhere, and what light there is in the room is mostly coming from the assembly tank where Al-An's new body had been crafted.
[19:24] * LM-101 continues to work at the controls, nano-paste now thickly covering the uppermost surface. The dark grey paste roils and undulates as it continues to interface with the Architect systems.
[19:26] <Kagerou Imaizumi> >__<;;;
[19:28] * LM-101 is completely oblivious to Kagerou's plight and just sways her head and body back and forth very very slightly as she works. Grinding and rumbling in the distance indicates that SOMETHING is going on elsewhere within the Fabricator.
[19:30] <LM-101> ♫ Wolves asleep amidst the trees... ♫
[19:30] <LM-101> ♫ Insects a-swaying in the breeze... ♫
[19:32] <LM-101> ♫ But one soul lies anxious wide awake... ♫
[19:33] <LM-101> ♫ Fearing all manner of witches and wraiths... ♫
[19:33] <LM-101> ♫ For dear little Leonna sleep has flown. ♫
[19:34] <LM-101> ♫ Don't dare let her tremble alone. ♫
[19:35] <LM-101> ♫ For the Onryo...heartless, cold...like a demon of old. ♫
[19:35] <LM-101> ♫ He'll come, he'll go, leave naught behind...but heartache and woe. ♫
[19:36] <LM-101> ♫ Deep, deep woe. ♫
[19:38] * Kagerou Imaizumi manages to turn her emergency transceiver on, broadcasting her position AND audio to anyone in range. >__<;;;
[19:39] *** The transmission would ALSO pick up LM-101's singing, and the way the melody echoes in the background is downright EERIE.
[19:40] <LM-101> ♫ Birds are silent for the night... ♫
[19:40] <LM-101> ♫ Sheep turned in as daylight dies... ♫

[19:44] <LM-101> ^_____^
[19:45] <Kagerou Imaizumi> ...help...is anyone out there?
[19:49] *** Kagerou's signal IS able to be picked up on by people on the surface who are near the Island. However, it would be quite faint.
[19:52] *** Another voice echoes out from the depths of the Fabricator. It's very faint, but just as spooky and unsettling.
[19:53] <~> - Tear down the bridges, drain all the rivers~! -
[19:53] * Capt. David O`Cain meanwhile is inside the Captain's quarters on the Queen's Bounty taking a nap while his crew of Rangers are spead out on the decks taking naps as well. At the bottom of the gangplank is a rope connected to a small bell with a sign, "To seek permission to come aboard, please ring the bell."
[19:53] <~> - Burn down the town hall, there are no winners~! -
[19:54] <~> - Reload the weapons, sharpen the scissors~! -
[19:54] * A few Descos do pick up on the signal, and are en-route to rescue our favorite woof~
[19:54] <~> - Cut off the fetters, pull all the triggers! -
[19:56] <~> - And everyone's screaming when the lights go out! -
[20:01] <Kagerou Imaizumi> I am really, really scared right now.. T__T
[20:08] * Michelle O`Cain and Donovan are working on maintenance on their Airwolf attack helicopter, and Megan is running a set of prayer beads between her fingers as she sits on her knees
[20:10] <Kagerou Imaizumi> I could really use some reassurance right now that I haven't been forgotten down here. Reisen? Mokou? Hatate?
[20:12] <Kagerou Imaizumi> LM-101 totally f[BLEEP]ked me over...she's messing around with Architect stuff down here. I think she's trying to build something
[20:13] * Around the corner to the entrance of this area, a small tendril with an eye on it extends out to scope the area.....
[20:17] *** The sneaky viewer has had to travel down DEEPER into the Crystal Caves, passing into a new biome where the walls were composed of formations of red-glowing blocky shapes that looked entirely too regular to be natural.
[20:18] *** It's a realm of horrors that combines the extreme crushing pressures of being well over 1000 meters below the surface, but Shadow Leviathans swim within this region. At least two of them, like they're guarding something.
[20:20] *** And yes, this area doesn't seem natural.
[20:22] * Descos can be very sneaky when push comes to shove. Anyway, getting through this will take all their cunning, stealth skills........ and maybe more than a few ways to distract the other creatures down here.
[20:23] *** Which means you've ALSO discovered the route leading to the Fabricator! THIS is the source of the electromagnetic disturbances.
[20:30] * The Descos do their best to send this information topside. Time to explore.
[20:32] *** There's a LOT going on down here. The electromagnetic signals being generated probably originate from whatever machinery is now functioning. You understand so little about Architect technology so you have no idea of what it does or what's going on.
[20:33] *** Except that it's probably not good. A LOT of Architect repair scuttle-bots are scuttling around all over the place, and a huge number of them scuttled out of the depths and back into the undersea tunnels leading back to the surface.
[20:33] * The Descos figure that someone topside ought to know, so they opt to record some of what they're seeing and send it to the others.
[20:38] *** Something is starting to form INSIDE the big assembly tank in front of LM-101
[20:43] *** Another message is received, showing many hundreds of repair-drones scuttling all over the hull of the wreck of the "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and going inside. They're doing something to that ship now.
[20:51] *** It seems like they're using the material of the ship to build something else.
[20:52] * The Descos continue exploring, trying to hone in on the distress signal.
[21:11] *** You get a lock. As well as a tentative route to it. But DAMN those Shadow Leviathans are going to be B[BLEEP]CHES to deal with
[21:14] *** Chibi-Leady receives the updated information too.
[21:14] <Chibi-Leady> ♦ No more wasting time because that wolf-girl doesn't have much left.
[21:15] * Chibi-Leady readies her weapons, and steps off the ledge to begin falling down the last drop into the Crystal Caverns. Next stop: Shadow Leviathan Central.
[21:16] *** And Pause here for the night since I'm starting to fall asleep myself. I
[21:16] *** I'll catch you all tomorrow. See you then.
[19:22] *** And we are BACK FOR MORE!!!
[19:24] *** Back on the Island, the Sea-Dolls of the Northern Parliament are suddenly ACCOSTED by a highly coordinated and EXTREMELY rapid swiping of most of their vodka!!!
[19:25] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> OI! Where's our supply of vodka?!
[19:27] <~> ♦ We've helped ourselves to it! Muaahahahahaha!
[19:27] * ~ is now known as AK-47
[19:29] * A little girl with a bunny hat and white coat staggers slightly over, "You take Grozny's vodka?"
[19:31] * AK-47 stands at the top of a nearby overhanging ridge, and she's NOT alone!!! Mosin-Nagent is next to her, along with A-91, DP-28, SKS, AK-74, 9A-91, PK, PRD, and Grozna!!
[19:31] <AK-47> Yes, we do! And for BEST reasons!!
[19:32] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> And what reason is that, cyka?
[19:32] * AK-47 and all of the Russian/Soviet T-Dolls proceed to show you how to be PROPER DRINKERS OF VODKA!!
[19:33] <UMP-45> XD
[19:33] * UMP-9 starts DANCING to Gopnik HARDBASS!!!!
[19:35] * Sovetskaya Rossiya just crosses her arms across her chest, and chuckles, "What is this s[BLEEP]t?"
[19:36] * HK416 just FACEPALMS.
[19:36] <Solarchos> I think it's their idea of partying with you.
[19:37] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> By stealing Northern Parliament vodka, and dancing like blyats? :P
[19:37] * The girls of Eisenblut are staring at all of this with utter confusion.
[19:37] <Solarchos> ...Apparently?
[19:46] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Hm. Amazing they're not flat drunk. Northern Parliament vodka is STRONG vodka. You could atest to that, Great Leader.
[19:46] <Grozny> Grozny make good vodka, no, Great Leader?
[19:47] <Solarchos> It's not bad, that's for sure.
[19:47] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:48] * Squad Vodka can drink ANY amount of vodka, no matter how strong! In fact, the stronger the better!!
[19:48] * Bismarck suddenly flinches and is taken aback by the sudden appearance of U-556!
[19:49] <Bismarck> What?! U-556?! I thought you'd been lost for good during the last assault on this place?!
[19:50] <U-556> Nien! I was captured and taken to Father's Hallowed Halls! I thought I'd truly been destroyed when I awakened and found myself inside a vast and magnificent hall filled with great statues of warriors and emperors.
[19:51] <U-556> And high above, overseeing everything, a wonderful little place filled with flowers and plants where Father and his chief Shrine-Maiden could sit to drink tea.
[19:53] <U-556> And in the strange language of the parishioners who gave praise to the warriors and emperors immortalized in that wonderful hall, the place I'd been transported to was called "Defender of Cadia".
[19:56] * Sovetskaya Rossiya just smiles, and joins her comrades from Northern Parliament for traditional dancing
[19:57] * Capt. David O`Cain and his crew are still napping onboard the Queen's Bounty
[19:57] * Murmansk puts a Tundra Kit on top her hat as she joins her comrades in dancing
[20:01] * Mosin-Nagant picks up a Tundra Kit too and dances!
[20:03] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:04] <Murmansk> Aren't these kits adorable? ^_^
[20:13] <Mosin-Nagant> We found them in the Zone!!
[20:14] * Dp28 has SEVERAL Tundra Kits on her, draped on her shoulders and neck...and probably tucked down the front of that EXTREMELY skimpy outfit of hers.
[20:19] <Murmansk> The Zone?
[20:20] *** The rest of Ironblood are ENTRANCED by U-556's descriptions of her first meeting with Father and his chief Shrine-Maiden and Keeper of the Hall
[20:20] <Durand> A location in Chernobyl, if the dossier I read was up to date.
[20:21] <Durand> Site of a nasty nuclear meltdown.
[20:21] <UMP-45> Oh, that's right! You Sea-Dolls are not familiar with the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
[20:21] <UMP-9> And you certainly aren't familiar with the Great Gopnik Boris!
[20:23] * Murmansk shakes her head, "Nope. Never heard such things."
[20:23] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> What are you yapping about?
[20:30] * UMP-9 slowly performs a proper Slav Squat for Rossiya! ^____^
[20:33] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Well, I meant all of you.
[20:39] <UMP-45> The Zone is an area of extreme dimensional instability. It's how WE got to Earth after the Last Battle of the Zealot War.
[20:41] * Sovetskaya Rossiya finds herself a seat, and takes a swig from her canteen of vodka
[20:42] <Tundra Kits> we hear 9 got fluffy :D
[20:42] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> What was going on there?
[20:57] <UMP-45> Lots of things
[20:57] <UMP-45> And they seem to be related distantly to what's happening here.
[20:58] * UMP-9 is STILL dancing to Hardbass!!
[20:58] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Huh.
[21:03] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> So, you're saying that we kansen are going through what you have?
[21:05] <UMP-45> Not exactly, but you're definitely related
[21:05] <Ouroboros> In more ways than one!
[21:06] <Ouroboros> You are all based upon OUR designs and must of OUR technology.
[21:06] <Ouroboros> ^much
[21:06] <Ouroboros> To a degree that you could be considered to be "cousins" of us.
[21:07] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Is that so? Then come join us in drink!
[21:08] <Ouroboros> Well I myself...
[21:09] * Ouroboros is shoved aside by Hunter and Executioner as they rush over to join the drinking party!!
[21:10] <Sovetskaya Rossiya> Is good vodka, no?
[21:14] <Executioner> :D
[21:14] <Hunter> ^__^
[21:14] *** Meanwhile, U-556's undersea vehicle (her "shark" as she called it) is prepared!
[21:14] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[21:15] <U-556> >:D
[21:16] * U-556 prepares to join her fellow Untersea-Fraulines in battle below the waves!!!
[21:17] *** And pause here for now!! We'll prepare to do battle in the Crystal Caverns tomorrow!
[19:13] *** We are back in action!!
[19:14] * U-556 is giving her shark a quick examination while Seele, Deele, and Fiona all assist her.
[19:17] * Michelle O`Cain and Donovan are still working on their Airwolf helicopter while David and his crew nap
[19:17] <Michelle O`Cain> /souond on
[19:17] *** Michelle O`Cain has turned their sound on
[19:33] *** Something SLAMS into the deck of the Queen's Bounty with a reverberating THUD!!!!!
[19:34] * Capt. David O`Cain jolts awake as the ship is slammed into
[19:34] <Capt. David O`Cain> The f[BLEEP]k was that?!
[19:35] * SFC Iris Gainsburough and any Rangers that are on the top deck are shaken awake, and then draw weapons
[19:35] *** The figure reaches out with something that looks like a tendril and dings the bell
[19:36] * ~ is now known as Alldrogis Valkyvida
[19:36] *** Alldrogis Valkyvida [Inquisitor [REDACTED]@FedCom.net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:36] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Alldrogis Valkyvida
[19:36] * Alldrogis Valkyvida stands up and straightens up, his body shifting oddly in the process.
[19:37] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Sorry about the sudden appearance. You probably thought I was Cadia-AI for a second there
[19:37] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:38] * Capt. David O`Cain grabs and slips on his knee-length robe, and steps out onto the deck, "Whoever boarded my ship better have a damn good reason for me NOT to shoot them!"
[19:42] * Capt. David O`Cain is clearly pissed that he was rudely awakened
[19:44] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> My being an Inquisitor-Lord should suffice as an acceptable reason.
[19:45] * Alldrogis Valkyvida looks around at the Sea-Dolls laying on desk.
[19:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> You still could have rung first. We Rangers were having a nice nap and all.
[19:48] * Capt. David O`Cain yawns
[19:51] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Status report.
[19:51] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> It seems that you've all been very busy.
[19:52] * Alldrogis Valkyvida looks around at the Sea-Dolls, some of whom recoil from him as if a little bit scared.
[19:52] <Durand> ....that was quite the entrance, sir.
[19:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Iron Blood swarmed us, and then a mass number of Sea-Dolls joined the fight against them.
[19:57] * Alldrogis Valkyvida crouches down near a slim, very youthful looking Sea-Doll with long honeyblond hair and a downright "tsuntsun" attitude. Yup, it's Queen Elizabeth!!
[19:58] <Queen Elizabeth> O___o
[19:59] * Queen Elizabeth struggles to pull herself back from the Inquisitor-Lord!
[20:00] <Queen Elizabeth> B-back, foul creature! I have not given you permission to approach me!!!
[20:00] *** The other Sea-Dolls are equally afraid!
[20:05] <Capt. David O`Cain> Guys, calm down. This is Alldrogis.
[20:08] <U-73> All...droog...his?
[20:10] <Capt. David O`Cain> Shall I say what you are, or shall you do that instead, Alldrogis?
[20:18] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> You may have the honor. ^__^
[20:18] <U-37> O___O
[20:19] <U-37> Is this the Null-Inquisitor?
[20:20] <Capt. David O`Cain> Eh? Null-Inquisitor?
[20:20] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> That's an interesting name
[20:23] <Capt. David O`Cain> Alldrogis is an Inquisitor of the Van Saar Federation, but I don't recall any Null-Inquisitors.
[20:23] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> It may be a play on how I originally kept my true identity highly secret.
[20:24] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> To the point that I used a smoke-cloak and distortion field to hide my appearance.
[20:24] * Alldrogis Valkyvida also indicates his sign-in prompt as "Inquisitor [REDACTED]"
[20:25] <Capt. David O`Cain> I suppose that could be.
[20:26] <U-37> The Null-Inquisitor was one of Father's closest allies during the War in Heaven, remaining utterly hidden and striking down his enemies from out of nowhere.
[20:29] * Capt. David O`Cain looks to Alldrogis, "Sounds like someone's quite knowledgeable."
[20:32] <U-37> He brought reinforcements from the Void, from a place both between and beyond the stars.
[20:34] <Capt. David O`Cain> Really? What did he bring?
[20:36] <U-73> A legion of children-made-soldiers! :D
[20:37] <U-73> And a great voidship that commanded the rebellious! :D
[20:37] <Queen Elizabeth> And according to the legends, the Null-Inquisitor was a creature so foul that even Time Itself feared him.
[20:40] <Capt. David O`Cain> I see.
[20:48] <Queen Elizabeth> He was said to be a creature neither organic nor inorganic. Not Human, not alien, not even cybernetic!
[20:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> Alldrogis is certainly not Human, that's for sure.
[20:51] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> However, I am NOT here to destroy you since you are not tools of the Alliance.
[20:52] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Now, what is the status of these Dolls?
[20:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> As far as I know, they're awaiting repairs.
[20:53] <Capt. David O`Cain> Unless that got taken care of while my crew and I were snoozing.
[20:55] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> And the forces on the Island?
[20:56] <Capt. David O`Cain> Getting repaired and rearmed last I heared.
[21:00] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I need to get over there. Which direction?
[21:02] * Capt. David O`Cain points towardswhere Island Base is, "That way."
[21:02] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Thank you.
[21:03] * Alldrogis Valkyvida starts to crouch down, unfurling his bat-like wings from his back as he does so. The inner surfaces of his wings start to glow with an emerald-green light forming intricate circuit patterns...
[21:04] <Capt. David O`Cain> Good luck.
[21:04] * Alldrogis Valkyvida then FLAPS his wings and SHOOTS high into the air, adjusting his course towards the Island.
[21:05] *** The Ironblood submarine girls all RUSH to the railing and watch as Alldrogis flies away with expressions of awe and wonder on their faces.
[21:06] * Capt. David O`Cain stretches a bit
[21:10] <U-37> We have seen miracles today, sisters!! First Father returns, then he places his own SON in command of us! Then other heroes come to his side!!!
[21:11] <U-47> My devotion never faltered once.
[21:12] <U-47> Father will certainly reward me.
[21:13] <U-73> No! He'll reward me more for my devotion!
[21:14] *** As the Eisenblut girls start bickering and fighting, the other Sea-Dolls just stare on in confusion.
[21:14] <Belfast> ...I don't understand any of them
[21:16] * Capt. David O`Cain sighs ~_~
[21:16] *** And let us pause here for the night. We shall pick things up again where we left off tomorrow. Until then, good night.
[19:18] *** AND WE ARE BACK!!!
[19:19] * is still pouring over all of the information being brought to him.
[19:19] <Chibi-AnTil> ^
[19:20] * Chibi-AnTil is still trying to figure out what he has on hand, what the information he's receiving about ALL of the Sea-Dolls means, and come up with some kind of standard against which to measure everything against.
[19:21] * Capt. David O`Cain and Iris keep a careful watch along with members of the 13th Rangers onboard the Queen's Bounty
[19:21] <Chibi-Sylvester> I'm trying to figure out these tactical displays. I wish Dad hadn't released that Draugr-girl so soon.
[19:22] * Michelle O`Cain and Donovan are close to finishing their maintenance on their assigned Airwolf helicopter
[19:22] * Megan O`Cain is strolling about the Iron Blood base
[19:23] <Chibi-Alex> ♦ Hey guys. I think I figured out a couple things about Ironblood's tech. Their weapons are definitely based on Federation gauss tech and Imperial las weapons, but it looks like they hybridized it with Sangvis Ferri weaponry as well. So it's all a weird techno-love-child thingie.
[19:24] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ So, a quasi-love triangle of sorts in tech?
[19:24] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:24] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:25] <Chibi-Catri> ♦ Alliance tech got included too. So it's actually a big ol' techno gang-bang!!!
[19:26] <~> FOUL-MOUTHED CHILDREN! What would your mother think if she heard you using such language!?
[19:26] * A strange portal has opened, and in comes...
[19:26] *** Ran Yakumo [Nine-Tailed Strategist@EnclaveFedCom.Net(Pirated S] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:26] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Ran Yakumo
[19:26] <Ran Yakumo> ^____^
[19:27] <Ran Yakumo> Hello, my little ones. I've come to assist you.
[19:27] <Tundra Kits> RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNN :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D::D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
[19:27] * Ran Yakumo bestows all of the Tundra Kits gently tail-pats with all NINE of her heavenly tails!
[19:28] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Still, guys, it makes us wonder how they got a hold of all that tech in the first place, and how they were able to integrate it.
[19:29] *** Meghan, you wander into one of the launch and recovery bays and see THREE Ironblood Sea-Dolls in the process of undergoing repairs and rearmament. All three of them are held in the air by multiple servo-arms performing a myriad of tasks on them
[19:29] <Chibi-AnTil> They had plenty of time to study and reverse engineer it all.
[19:30] * Megan O`Cain looks to see who is being worked on while maintaining some distance
[19:32] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Makes sense at this point.
[19:32] *** Megan, you're a little taken aback by the three Sea-Dolls in front of you, for all of them radiate a dark elegance despite the damage they've sustained.
[19:33] *** Weser, Graf Zeppelin, and Peter Strasser turn their heads towards you and regard you cautiously.
[19:36] <Megan O`Cain> If you three are worried I'll sabotage your repairs, forget it. I'm not here for that business. I'm chalking it up to simply coincidence to find you here right now.
[19:37] <Graf Zeppelin> If you were to try, I would destroy you and everything else in an instant, for such is my destiny.
[19:39] <Megan O`Cain> Hmph. Sounds like you don't give a s[BLEEP]t about anyone but yourself. You'd even destroy your allies in the process.
[19:39] <Weser> I had no such concerns. We are very unused to anyone other than fellow Sisters being here.
[19:41] <Peter Strasser> Graf Zeppelin is not quite as undisciplined as Roon is.
[19:42] <Peter Strasser> She DOES wish to destroy the world, though. In devotion to our Father and to usher in Ragnarok in his name.
[19:42] * Megan O`Cain looks at Weser, "Well, you'll need to get used to being around others. The way I see things, you and the other Sea-Dolls, or kansen if you would rather be called that, are under Federation command."
[19:43] <Peter Strasser> Although it DOES now seem like that will be unnecessary now that Father has come back to us.
[19:43] <Megan O`Cain> As well as part of the Coalition if you think about it.
[19:43] <Peter Strasser> Are you claiming authority over us, Officer?
[19:44] <Peter Strasser> That word, kansen. What does it mean?
[19:45] <Megan O`Cain> That depends on what your Shikikan says. And from what Rossiya said, it means warship girl (or something similar to that effect). She claimed Sea-Doll as an old term to describe what you are.
[19:48] <Peter Strasser> I suppose Kansen is adequate.
[19:49] <Peter Strasser> Now, who might you be, Officer? Time is currently NOT our ally.
[19:51] <Megan O`Cain> Army Captain Megan O`Cain of the Moon Kingdom Army.
[19:56] <Peter Strasser> Moon Kingdom. I don't believe I am familiar with that group. But then again there have been a number of things we forgot during and after the Purging.
[19:59] <Megan O`Cain> I see.
[20:03] <Peter Strasser> Will others of our kind be arriving here soon?
[20:05] <Megan O`Cain> They will be. Just need to get them here so that their repairs can be done.
[20:09] <Peter Strasser> And how is our young Shikikan performing? I must admit I am very interested in him and the rest of his siblings. So far I've only had a chance to meet his younger sister.
[20:10] <Megan O`Cain> I think he's still figuring things out at the moment.
[20:11] <Megan O`Cain> Anyway, I've given my name to you three. Who are you?
[20:16] <Peter Strasser> The Kansen who desires to be the harbinger of destruction is Graf Zeppelin.
[20:17] <Peter Strasser> The red-haired girl is none other than the Light Carrier Weser.
[20:18] <Peter Strasser> And I am Peter Strasser. You might say I am Graf Zeppelin's "twin" since our designs are very similar.
[20:22] <Megan O`Cain> Nice to meet your acquaintence. Wish we'd met under better circumstances, you know.
[20:25] <Peter Strasser> Perhaps. But we were only carrying out our directives as we were long-ago ordered to.
[20:26] <Peter Strasser> You organics are so short-lived it's confounding to us how easily and rapidly you reprogram yourselves.
[20:29] <Peter Strasser> Now...tell me about the Shikikan and his siblings!
[20:35] <Peter Strasser> Young Catriona seems quite intriguing. She has a keen and quick mind, but she lacks the appreciation of time management that I do.
[20:38] <Megan O`Cain> Well, she tends to be sneaky at times, and tends to make mischief.
[20:38] <Peter Strasser> I think Eugen and Heinrich will adore her.
[20:41] <Megan O`Cain> Is that so?
[20:46] <Peter Strasser> Heinrich is...insufferable in her impulsiveness.
[20:47] <Peter Strasser> And Eugen is quite the mischief maker herself.
[20:54] <Megan O`Cain> I see. They'll get along swimmingly.
[20:55] <Peter Strasser> And the others?
[21:02] * Megan O`Cain describes Antil, Alex, and Sylvester to Peter Strasser, Graf Zeppelin, and Weser
[21:08] <Peter Strasser> Oooo, is Alexianna truly as smart as you claim?
[21:08] <Megan O`Cain> She is quite smart.
[21:10] *** Meanwhile, Ran is helping the Kits strategize and organize, and keeping the Tundra Kits as happy and calm as can be
[21:12] * Dean appears off to Megan's right side, "Captain."
[21:12] * Megan O`Cain looks over at Dean, "Yeah, Dean? What is it?"
[21:14] <Dean> While you were having your conversation with Iron Blood's carriers, I was taking a look at the base's repair routines and sub-routines. I have taken the liberty of reworking those routines, and have made them more efficient while making sure the repair work is solid.
[21:16] <Megan O`Cain> Nice work there. You found a nice balance in repairing the kansen.
[21:19] <Dean> Of course. It was of best interest to prevent shoddy repairs in the first place. The increase in efficiency should benefit all kansen that is need of repairs.
[21:20] <Peter Strasser> Ah. Increased time efficiency. I approve
[21:23] <Dean> Absolutely, Miss Strasser. Given the intensity of battle the kansen undergo, it is prudent to have them repaired as quickly as possible, but also maintain structural integrity.
[21:25] <Chibi-AnTil> ♦ Queen's Bounty is about to dock. Prepare to receive critically damaged Kansen
[21:26] <Dean> Hm. That's interesting. I thought the ship was already docked.
[21:27] * Megan O`Cain shrugs
[21:29] * Peter Strasser disengages from her servo-cradle.
[21:29] <Peter Strasser> Likely it needed to position itself into a specific location in order to access our docks.
[21:31] <Megan O`Cain> Perhaps. Well, I guess we'll see how well Dean's retooling is soon enough, eh?
[21:33] <Peter Strasser> Indeed. Let us assist you in sorting out these new girls
[21:33] *** And pause here for the night since I need to get to bed. I'll see you all tomorrow for more, and we'll get this one step closer to the conclusion!
[19:32] *** And we're back for more!
[19:33] * Alldrogis Valkyvida SLAMS down on the Island with Cadia-like DRAMA...but does NOT engage in her trademark Imperial preaching.
[19:42] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:42] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:42] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:42] * Alldrogis Valkyvida straightens up and looks around.
[19:42] <Tundra Kits> lizard guy :D
[19:45] * Mathias Stelman spots Alldrogis, "Hey there."
[19:48] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Where are the Submarine Girls assembling?
[19:49] *** The Sea-Dolls all STARE at Alldrogis.
[19:49] <Z-18> It's the Null-Inquisitor!!!
[19:49] <Mathias Stelman> I believe some are over there (points over to a group of Sub Girls). What's up?
[19:50] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I'm going with them
[19:52] * Alldrogis Valkyvida withdraws an object from his harness that resembles a thermos. "I've obtained a sample of the disease from the Frozen Leviathan. If I can get down to the Fabricator I might be able to interface with its systems and craft a counteragent."
[19:52] <Mathias Stelman> A disease? What sort of disease is it?
[20:06] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Alldrogis Valkyvida is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[20:06] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> A variant of the Karar
[20:07] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Or more specifically, it's a sample of the original strain from a thousand years ago.
[20:08] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> And since the Frozen Leviathan has been Marked by Nurgle, it's very likely that the bacterium has been daemonically enhanced.
[20:09] <Mathias Stelman> Whoa whoa whoa. Say that first part again?
[20:13] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> The original Karar strain or Marked by Nurgle?
[20:16] <Mathias Stelman> The Nurgle part.
[20:19] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> The Frozen Leviathan, that's currently in the process of awakening, has somehow been contaminated by Chaos and received the Mark of Nurgle.
[20:19] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> Chances are that if it gets free it will spread a new Karak infection across the planet.
[20:20] <Mathias Stelman> That's just lovely. Unless Solar and the O`Cains have been warned before your arrival, we gotta radio that in. We may have to use anti-demonic munitions.
[20:21] <Solarchos> What's that?
[20:27] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> We have a potential daemonic infestation here. Greater Daemon class.
[20:33] <Mathias Stelman> We're gonna need AD gear if we're gonna take it out.
[20:36] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Solarchos is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[20:36] <Solarchos> How much of that did you bring?
[20:40] <Mathias Stelman> Plenty just in case.
[20:41] <Solarchos> Can it be loaded on the weaponry of the Kansen?
[20:44] * Mathias Stelman goes to answer, but then tilts his head, "You know, I have no idea."
[20:49] <Solarchos> What forms do your AD gear take? Is it in specific weaponry or just ammunition?
[20:51] <Mathias Stelman> We've got various rifle, pistol, shotgun shells, rocket, grenades, and artillery muntions.
[20:53] <Solarchos> Check to see how much of it can be loaded into the weaponry of the Kansen. If it's compatible, we may be able to fight that Leviathan before it can escape.
[20:54] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> My preliminary analysis indicates that the enhanced bacterium doesn't handle cold well at all. It's in an inert state now, but if it reaches warmer waters closer to the equator it'll activate.
[20:58] <Mathias Stelman> The Skyhawks and Airwolves will need to change arms.
[21:00] <Mathias Stelman> As for Kansen compatibility, we'll see what we can do.
[21:04] <Bismarck> Father?
[21:04] * Bismarck has pulled herself to her feet and staggers over, clutching the wound in her side.
[21:04] <Bismarck> You would use us in battle?
[21:11] <Solarchos> Yes. I'll help my son marshal every asset I can for him to counter this new threat.
[21:14] <Mathias Stelman> Solar, you can count on Alpha Company to fight. I have no doubt the Rangers, Wolf's Den, and the F/A-9 Skyhawks will be ready.
[21:17] *** Meanwhile, Alldrogis is getting onto U-556's shark, sitting behind her, and preparing to go with her under the waves.
[21:18] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I'll bring the sample down to the Fabricator. You all focus on preparing to fight the Nurgleish Leviathan.
[21:20] *** Everyone rushes to make preparations, for the Last Battle draws nigh!
[21:20] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR THE NIGHT! Take care everyone, and good night.
[19:18] *** And we're finally back at it despite some delays.
[19:18] * Alldrogis Valkyvida moves quickly towards the spot where U-556 is getting ready to dive.
[19:19] <U-556> O___O
[19:19] <U-556> The Null Inquisitor!!!!
[19:19] <U-556> How can I...?
[19:19] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> I need access to your sub-mount. Move aside.
[19:20] * Megan O`Cain has guided the Queen's Bounty into the repair dock at the Iron Blood base, and the crew lowers the gangplank down
[19:21] * Alldrogis Valkyvida kneels down beside U-556's shark and pressed a clawed hand against the side of it. Suddenly, his hand melts into a mass of undulating silvery-grey semi-solid liquid that spreads out into several small rivulets that flow into creases in the hull and into the vehicle's systems
[19:22] *** The loading clamps of the Rig Servicing Bays reach down and grab onto a few Kansens, pulling them up inside for repair and rearmament.
[19:22] <Queen Elizabeth> OfF wItH tHeIr HeAdS~!
[19:23] <Belfast> @___@
[19:23] <Megan O`Cain> Calm down. You'll be good as new in a moment.
[19:24] * Capt. David O`Cain walks down the gangplank along with a few members of the 13th Ranger Platoon
[19:27] <Chibi-Alex> Hell-oooooo!
[19:28] * Chibi-Alex suddenly appears, wearing a cute white naval uniform complete with a skirt. :D
[19:28] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hey, Alex. One moment. Alright, you scalawag kansen! Line up for queue to get repairs and reloads!
[19:31] *** One of the Kansen just...flops over onto the ground. Is she SNORING now?!
[19:32] <Laffey> Zzzzzzzzzzzzz
[19:35] *** Another Kansen coughs heavily as she steps towards one of the repair units that identifies her as being a Priority Repair case. Wait...she's got fox ears AND fluffy fox tails?!
[19:35] * Amagi coughs again. ^__^
[19:35] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yes?
[19:43] * Amagi lays down in the repair unit, which then closes up and starts the process of fixing her...and the machine is indicating it'll be DAYS before she's fully repaired!
[19:44] <Capt. David O`Cain> Huh. Anyway, what's up, Alex?
[19:44] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:44] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:46] <Chibi-Alex> We're doing goooooooooooood here!
[19:46] <Chibi-Alex> The foxes are much happier now.
[19:47] <Capt. David O`Cain> That's good.
[19:47] <Chibi-Alex> And we've got just enough munitions to resupply about HALF of the Kansen. That is if we limit their ordinance loads to about 75% each.
[19:48] <Chibi-Alex> Eisenblut was equipped to fight a long war, but only if they were the only ones being resupplied. There's not enough for everyone all at once.
[19:49] <Chibi-Alex> So Antil's trying to figure out who to prioritize for maximum effectiveness in the next battle.
[19:49] <Chibi-Alex> Any suggestions?
[19:49] <Tundra Kits> be fluffy :D
[19:50] * Capt. David O`Cain and Daxter look over the Kansen, and analyze each one, "Hmmm. Let's see what we're working with."
[19:54] *** The Kansen with you are a mixture of the various classes, although the Battleship-models seemed to suffer the worst from Ironblood's resistance. Specifically, Queen Elizabeth got pummeled by Roon, and Hood got one-shotted by Bismarck.
[19:56] <Capt. David O`Cain> The battleships took a nasty beating...(continuing analysis)
[20:02] <Chibi-Alex> If you're going to fight that weird Leviathan thing, then long-range firepower might work best.
[20:05] <Capt. David O`Cain> Huh? A Leviathan? How nasty is it?
[20:05] <Chibi-Alex> Something about being Marked by Nurgle?
[20:06] <Capt. David O`Cain> .......God damn it. >_<
[20:06] <Daxter> ♦ That doesn't sound good.
[20:08] * Capt. David O`Cain turns to his ship, "ROGERS! HEAD ROUNDS FOR THE CANNONS! ADAPT ROUNDS FOR PHALANX!"
[20:09] <SFC Iris Gainsburough> Aye aye, Captain! (turns to the crew still on the ship) You heard'em! Ammo change!
[20:10] * SFC Iris Gainsburough lends a hand in switching out to anti-demonic rounds
[20:11] * Chibi-Catri comes up, and is dressed just like Alexianna is. And her hair is done up in twintails just like Peter Strasser! >:3
[20:12] <Capt. David O`Cain> Alex, we're gonna have to use anti-demonic rounds on all guns for this. It's the best s[BLEEP]t we got at this point.
[20:17] <Chibi-Catri> How much of that stuff do you have?
[20:17] <Chibi-Catri> Because we might want to equip some of the Sea-Dolls with them
[20:17] <Megan O`Cain> If we do an alternating pattern for the Kansen, as in AD-regular-AD, would it be enough for a full rearm?
[20:19] * Chibi-Alex does some mental calculations.
[20:19] <Chibi-Alex> Do you have a manifest I can read over?
[20:21] * Megan O`Cain opens a vid-window, and slides over to Alex with various anti-demonic munitions, "Here you go."
[20:26] * Chibi-Alex reads over the list carefully.
[20:26] * Chibi-Alex stares at it with her eyes wide open for over a minute, and you feel a weird tingling in your head Megan as Alexianna does this.
[20:27] * Megan O`Cain tilts her head away from Alex a bit >_o
[20:27] *** You might have forgotten, but Alexianna is a TELEPATH who'll one day have a broadcast range of at least several light-years.
[20:28] <Chibi-Alex> ...Okay!
[20:28] * Chibi-Alex giggles a little.
[20:28] <Chibi-Alex> SHIKIKAN Antil has a request!
[20:29] <Chibi-Alex> Load up the Battleship and Destroyer girls with AD rounds, but only for ONE of their weapons each.
[20:32] <Megan O`Cain> How would that work? From what I see, they'll need rifle and grenade rounds unless they have some funky miniturizing like the Mercurians did.
[20:38] <Chibi-Alex> From what I can tell, your Phalanx rounds are compatible with their Destroyer-scale autocannon systems. That would at least give them one weapon that's potentially effective.
[20:40] <Megan O`Cain> Okay.
[20:50] <Megan O`Cain> And for the Battleships?
[20:54] <Chibi-Alex> Do you have anything like missiles or plasma-cannon conversions?
[20:56] <Megan O`Cain> Got rockets and 40mm grenades. Not sure about plasma-cannons.
[21:02] <Chibi-Alex> The 40mm grenades will have to do.
[21:03] <Megan O`Cain> Alright. The Mars base's production facility had been cranking out anti-demonic stuff for a while. So, we've got plenty to work with.
[21:05] <Chibi-Alex> Good. I'll have Sylvester and Catri make the recalibrations.
[21:05] <Chibi-Alex> Now...GIT IT ON!!
[21:05] <Chibi-Alex> :D
[21:06] * Megan O`Cain and David begin bringing crates out from dimensional pockets while the crew divvy up the ammo they've brought out
[21:14] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR THE NIGHT SINCE IT'S NOW ALTE ON MY END!!
[12:55] * Kancer Kain manages to get the STAR unit SOMEHOW back into humanoid form
[12:55] <Kancer Kain> come on..come on w-
[12:56] * Kancer Kain gets SLAMMED into by a kouma
[12:56] <Kancer Kain> GAH
[12:57] * Kancer Kain stumbles back..only to see a whole swarm of Kouma..all postions around a small store area
[12:57] <Kancer Kain> ...what the fuuuuck
[12:58] * a man dressed in a long dark trench coat and large wide brim black hat steps forward..he's holding an open book
[12:58] * Strange Man looks up...the STAR Unit reflecting behind his round dark glasses
[12:59] <Strange Man> kill her.
[12:59] * The kouma CHARGE at Kancer!
[12:59] <Kancer Kain> S[BLEEP]T
[12:59] * Kancer Kain tries to remember the lessons at the academy...but she's not used to a STAR Unit fully
[13:02] * Kancer Kain tries to side step one of the kouma..but another catchs one of her arms...and latches on..followed by another..and another!
[13:02] <Kancer Kain> GET! OFF!
[13:03] * Kancer Kain manages to trigger the jets and zooms forward..dragging the creatures along...only to trip and tumble sideways........losing one of the arms in the process to the creatures
[13:03] <Kancer Kain> GAAAH
[13:06] * Kancer Kain struggles to get the STAR unit back on it's feet...and then realizes the arm that got torn off was the one with the weapon on it
[13:06] <Kancer Kain> ....oh no
[13:07] * Kancer Kain backs away..only to get jumped on behind by another kouma which tears at the armor..and then another..and another and another!
[13:08] * Kancer Kain can't focus enough to get her spirit power risen high enough and tries depsratly to get them off her
[13:11] * Kancer Kain manages to jettsion herself out of the armor....and stumbles to the road as the kouma tear apart the armor...
[13:11] <Kancer Kain> ..Gems is going to kill me
[13:12] *** the kouma slowly turn and look towards her
[13:12] <Kancer Kain> ..oh..crap
[13:13] * Kancer Kain tries to scramble away but the kouma snarl and chase after her
[13:14] * Kancer Kain glances back..as one of the kouma leaps towards her!
[13:14] <Kancer Kain> !!!!
[13:14] *** a burst of fire SLAMS into the kouma.....causing it to explode..and catching several other kouma in the process
[13:15] * Strange Man glances over...as a green colored koubu-F3 moves into view...
[13:16] * Lobelia Carlini grins in her Koubu-F3....and with a snarl CHARGES into the creatures...her blades flashing
[13:16] * Kancer Kain watches, breathing hard....as a large truck pulls up and two girls hop out, helping her up
[13:17] * Lobelia Carlini spins..catching more kouma in a tornado of flame...
[13:17] <Lobelia Carlini> ♦ DIE DIE DIE
[13:18] * several of Kouma try to take off into the sky.....only for a group of blue bird drones to take them down...
[13:18] <Diana Caprice> ♦ Permiter is secure.....is Kancer alright???
[13:19] * Kancer Kain just watches the battle..then looks over at Gemini's STAR unit..which is a twisted wreck
[13:20] <Strange Man> well now.
[13:21] * Strange Man closes his book with a SNAP...as the ground suddenly shakes.....and EXPLODES up, scattering kouma and debries
[13:21] * Eilean has moved to: [ Grand Imperial Theater ]
[13:21] <Eilean> [Grand Imperial Theater] what the hell's going on there!?
[13:22] <Lobelia Carlini> ...well things just got fun....
[13:22] *** a gigantic steam mech..shaped like a giant turtle with various tenticle like attachments on it's back tipped with guns appears out of the gorund
[13:23] * Black G.A.M.A. King has appeared!
[13:23] * Lobelia Carlini manages to avoid a blast from the tenticles and tries to slice at one of the appengences...but gets knocked sideways by it!
[13:23] <Lobelia Carlini> S[BLEEP]T
[13:24] * Diana Caprice in flight mode navigates across the turtle...trying to use her drone to attack it....
[13:24] <Diana Caprice> it's armor is incredible! I've never seen a configuration like this!
[13:25] * The mech opens it's mouth..and fires a large laser towards the group...only the laser to be deflected sideways!
[13:26] *** Sarah Christensson has joined #suburbansenshi3
[13:26] <@spiritflame> konnichiwa Sarah Christensson
[13:26] * Sarah Christensson 's spear has been damaged by the hit.but she's successfully blocked the attack
[13:27] <Sarah Christensson> ♦ Commander..do you have any idea about a weakspot?
[13:27] <Eilean> [Grand Imperial Theater] commander?..oh wait that's me!...um...*runs to one of the technicans* any ideas?
[13:28] * Tech has moved to: [ Grand Imperial Theater ]
[13:28] * Tech [Grand Imperial Theater] types on a keyboard..looking over the data
[13:29] <Tech> [Grand Imperial Theater] it looks like it's weakspot is right underneath it....if they can get a solid hit it should do it
[13:29] <Eilean> [Grand Imperial Theater] did you hear that? ok..let's see...
[13:29] <Eilean> [Grand Imperial Theater] Diana! Keep the snake things busy! Sarah and Lobelia..try to flip it!
[13:30] <Lobelia Carlini> ♦ tch...what does she think I am..a glorified spatula?
[13:30] <Sarah Christensson> ♦ nevermind...I'll take one side..you take the other!
[13:30] * Diana Caprice flies...drawing it's fire and making sure to keep just out of reach
[13:31] * Diana Caprice suddenly feels something hit her STAR unit...a kouma has latched onto the back of it
[13:31] <Diana Caprice> ♦ gah!
[13:31] * Diana Caprice tries to a do a barrel roll..but the Kouma is latched on tightly
[13:32] * Kouma tries to tear open the armor...only to get shot in the face and sent falling off!
[13:33] * Erica Fontaine 's fires shot after shot...taking down each kouma as it gets close to diana!
[13:33] * Lobelia and Sarah use the distraction to get on either side of the giant mech...and grab onto it's side...and try to lift it...
[13:33] <Lobelia and Sarah> ♦ gaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAA
[13:34] * Lobelia and Sarah push their spirit power to it's limits as well as the armor to it's limits...as they THROW the turtle onto it's back!
[13:34] <Eilean> [Grand Imperial Theater] NOW!!!!
[13:35] * Lobelia, Diana, Sarah and Erica all use their attacks at the same time on the underbelly
[13:36] * Black G.A.M.A King sparks..glows..and EXPLODES!!!!
[13:36] *** Black G.A.M.A King has left #suburbansenshi3
[13:37] * Eilean [Grand Imperial Theater] sighs, resting in her chair...
[13:37] *** the kouma scatter to the wind....most of them having been killed in the explosion....the strange man, however, is gone...
[13:39] <Lobelia Carlini> ♦ that felt good
[13:39] <Diana Caprice> ♦ ..the damage though.......
[13:39] *** the shop that the youma had been attacking has been reduced to rubble
[13:40] <Sarah Christensson> ♦ I'm sure they start rebuilding it right away.......let's head back...
[13:40] <Erica Fontaine> ♦ I wonder why they attacked...
[13:41] *** Lobelia, Diana, Sarah and Erica head back.....
[13:41] *** they are unaware of a black seal where the rubble was...which gives off a shadowy glow..before fading away
[19:28] *** AND WE ARE BACK FOR EVEN MORE!!
[19:33] * U-556 makes final checks on her shark as it reactivates. Its power systems are operating even more efficiently than ever now!
[19:34] <U-556> How did...?!
[19:35] * Alldrogis Valkyvida retracts the nanopaste back into his own body. "I've optimized some of your subsystems for improved performance and power use. That will give you a slight advantage in this upcoming mission."
[19:35] * Capt. David O`Cain and his crew, with aid from Megan, are getting anti-demonic munitions piled up for rearming at Iron Blood's base
[19:40] *** All of the Ironblood Sea-Dolls who when back to their base are putting themselves at the front of the line for rearmament...and getting a little pushy about it too!
[19:43] <UMP-9> ♦ Hey, folks at the Queen's Bounty. How are things on your end?
[19:45] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Repairs and rearming is underway. Although, Iron Blood's getting rather antsy about getting any sort of AD rounds.
[19:46] <Graf Zeppelin> WE MUST BE THE VANGUARD OF FATHER'S WRATH!!!
[19:48] <Megan O`Cain> You're not the only group that's fighting! Wait your turn to get your allotment!
[19:48] <UMP-9> ♦ Well, hurry up! That diseased Kaiju is breaking loose!
[19:49] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ We're going as fast as we can here, 9. Even with Dean's improvements, there's still a few Kansen that need work done.
[19:50] <Karlsruhe> NEIN!!! We must EARN Father's favor in this coming battle!!!
[19:51] <Karlsruhe> To prove ourselves truly worthy ours must be the fist to PIERCE THE HEAVENS!!!!
[19:57] <Megan O`Cain> Either get in line, or you get NOTHING!
[20:01] <Scharnhorst> NEIN!!! We HaVe WaYs Of MaKiNg YoU aRm Us~!!!!!!!!
[20:02] <Peter Strasser> Mein Gott, they've all gone insane...
[20:03] <Megan O`Cain> ♦ Hey, Antil. Could you help get Iron Blood to calm down? Rearming won't be possible if they continue acting up.
[20:05] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> ♦ HEY!!! All Girls of Ironblood, wait your turn and remain in the orders that were assigned to you by us. Attempting to jump in line or otherwise disrupt the resource allocation plan we came up with will result in time, energy, and materials being used inefficiently.
[20:06] * marches forward with a bullhorn.
[20:06] <Chibi-Alex> ^
[20:07] <Chibi-Alex> - AND YOU IRONBLOOD SEA-DOLLS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BIG ON EFFICIENCY, SO DON'T BE ACTING LIKE MALFUNCTIONING HYPERACTIVE VOCALOIDS!!! -
[20:09] <Chibi-Alex> - Because WE have ways of making you behave too! And many of them involve FACEHUGGER KITS!!! -
[20:20] <Megan O`Cain> So, what'll it be, Iron Blood? Gonna behave, or not?
[20:27] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:28] <Admiral Hipper> <__<;;
[20:28] <Chibi-Catri> Don't give them any chances!! RELEASE THE FLUFFEN!!!
[20:32] <Tundra Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:32] * Tundra Kits and forest Kits start SWARMing!
[20:32] <Admiral Hipper> D:
[20:32] <Karlsruhe> :O
[20:33] * Scharnhorst trips over herself as she tries to run!
[20:33] * Laffey continues to remain asleep on the floor.
[20:34] <Megan O`Cain> Wrangle them, kits!
[20:35] * Tundra Kits start wrangling and facehugging :D :3 :D :3
[20:35] <Capt. David O`Cain> Sheesh. Would have gone smoother had they behaved. ~_~
[20:38] <Chibi-Alex> >:D
[20:38] * Admiral Hipper FLAILS as she now has a Forest Fox tightly latched onto her face!!
[20:39] * U-47 fails to the ground, yelling and screaming as multiple Kits latch onto her!! O___O
[20:39] <Forest Kits> OwO
[20:41] * Capt. David O`Cain shakes his head, and resumes giving anti-demonic rounds to the more well-behaved Kansen
[20:47] <Belfast> Are they going to be all right?
[20:47] <Capt. David O`Cain> We can only hope.
[20:49] <HK416> ♦ Update. The Inquisitor and the Ironblood sub-girl have entered the water and are now travelling to meet the others.
[20:50] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Understood, 416.
[20:51] <HK416> ♦ What is young Antizha's status? Does he need additional protection or anything?
[20:54] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Antil is doing fine. He lent a hand in getting Iron Blood to straighten up.
[20:59] <HK416> ♦ Watch him closely! Make sure those Sangvis Ferri knockoffs don't attempt to do anything harmful to him!
[21:00] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ No worries.
[21:02] <~> NO HARM WILL COME TO MY COMMANDER!!!!!
[21:03] *** Someone else has just arrived and she SLAMS the door wide open, revealing...
[21:04] <~> :D
[21:04] * ~ is now known as Negev
[21:08] <Negev> ♫ Where is heeeeeeeeeeeeee? ♫
[21:08] <Chibi-Alex> <__<;
[21:09] <Chibi-Catri> >__>;
[21:09] <Chibi-Catri> Isn't the Kommandant's Office protected by several armored hatches?
[21:09] <Capt. David O`Cain> [Oh for God Almighty's sake.] ~_~
[21:09] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[21:10] <Chibi-Alex> Yup. Tell Sylvester to lock them all now.
[21:13] *** Some of the Kansen give Negev odd looks. They sense that she's like them, but different, and something about her expression makes they UNEASY.
[21:16] <Negev> Time to find him and he with him~!!
[21:16] <Chibi-Alex> ...Forest and Tundra Kits? DELAY HER!
[21:19] <Capt. David O`Cain> Sic'em, kits!
[21:19] <Negev> Huh?
[21:20] *** Chibi-Alex [BoundlessExuberanceOfYouth@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Can we go to the park next? Can we, can we can we~!")
[21:20] *** Chibi-Catri [MakerOfMischief@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Officer Kagami? You MIGHT want to get over here really fast!")
[21:22] *** Forest Kits has left #suburbansenshi3 (beakitbeakitbeabeabeakit!)
[21:26] * Negev is BAMBOOZLED by numerous tricks and traps by the wily Forest Kits, including a Dummy-AnTil who's really several Forest Kits in disguise!
[21:26] *** And pause here for now! We'll keep going on Monday, so tune in then and good night to you all.
[19:30] *** AND WE'RE BACK FOR MORE!!!
[19:31] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3

[19:32] *** With a loud splash, U-556 and Alldrogis hit the water and quickly sink beneath the surface. U-556's shark revs its engines and surges forward and downward, weaving back and forth between the geothermal spires that jut up from the shallow sea floor.
[19:32] <Negev> AAHHHHHHHH! GET AWAY FROM ME!!! DON'T STOP ME FROM BEING WITH YOUNG ANTIL!!!!!
[19:33] <Capt. David O`Cain> I'm sure those kits will give Negev several fits just to keep her busy.
[19:34] <Megan O`Cain> [They better for Antil's sake. She really has stalker qualities about her.]
[19:35] * Capt. David O`Cain nods
[19:36] * Negev tries to evade and escape from the Foxes!!! "You will not deter me!!!"
[19:36] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:37] <Forest Kits> be a kit to be closer to your fluffy side >:D
[19:38] <Negev> NO!!! I must claim him in my Doll form!!! It's the only way we'll truly be as one!!!!
[19:39] * Capt. David O`Cain sighs and continues assisting in the rearming effort
[19:39] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:40] <Forest Kits> but what if you're BOTH fluffy :D
[19:45] <~> Perhaps I might be of assistance?
[19:47] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[19:47] <Capt. David O`Cain> Hm?
[19:48] <Megan O`Cain> Who's asking?
[19:48] *** You turn around to see...
[19:52] * ~ is now known as Atago
[19:52] <Megan O`Cain> Name, please?
[19:55] <Atago> I am Atago, second model of the Takao-class heavy cruiser Doll and flagship of the 2nd division of the Sakura Empire.
[19:57] <Megan O`Cain> Megan O`Cain, Army Captain of the Moon Kingdom Army. And this is my brother, Army Ranger Captain David O`Cain.
[19:57] <Capt. David O`Cain> Ma'am.
[19:59] <Atago> I've worked with many sisters, in battle and out of. Perhaps I can help you in streamlining all of this?
[20:01] <Capt. David O`Cain> It'll help keep Iron Blood in line, we'll need all the help we can get at this point.
[20:01] <Capt. David O`Cain> ^If it'll
[20:01] <Atago> I suspect they only desire to impress their new siblings.
[20:02] <Atago> This "Father"...who is he and what is he like?
[20:05] * Capt. David O`Cain and Megan look at each other, and then describe Solar to Atago including him being a family man with Inu-Kit and his kids
[20:07] <Atago> Ara-ara! He sounds very responsible and loving.
[20:09] <Capt. David O`Cain> Yeah, he loves Inu-Kit very much.
[20:10] <Atago> And he's now entrusted us to his oldest son?
[20:11] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:11] <Forest Kits> yuppa :D
[20:11] <Forest Kits> but, no be STALKER! >:D
[20:12] <Megan O`Cain> He has from our understanding. My guess is that it's to help lessen the pressure of command.
[20:14] <Atago> Sounds like he'll need the gentle and astute attentions of a Big Sister then!
[20:16] <Megan O`Cain> Maybe. We'll see.
[20:21] <Atago> And what IS the young Shikikan like?
[20:23] <Megan O`Cain> Well, Antilzha is... (discusses about Antil with David's help)
[20:25] <Atago> He sounds adorable.
[20:27] <Megan O`Cain> Heh.
[20:29] <Atago> Perhaps you could bring me to him?
[20:29] <Megan O`Cain> Are you sure?
[20:30] * Atago nods! ^___^
[20:31] * Megan O`Cain nods to her brother, "You call it in."
[20:32] <Capt. David O`Cain> Alright, alright.
[20:33] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ (comms to Antil only) Oi, Antil. A kansen has requested come see you, as in she is brought to you.
[20:34] <Chibi-Antil (Shikikan)> ♦ Oh? Who is she?
[20:35] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Takao-class heavy cruiser Atago has made the request.
[20:35] <Chibi-Antil (Shikikan)> ♦ Uhhh, picture?
[20:40] * Capt. David O`Cain takes a quick snapshot of Atago, and sends it to Antil
[20:41] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:44] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ So, what say you?
[20:47] <Chibi-Antil (Shikikan)> O___O
[20:47] <Chibi-Antil (Shikikan)> ♦ She seems quite...buoyant.
[20:48] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ You could say that. She is a beauty as well.
[20:49] <Chibi-Antil (Shikikan)> ♦ I suppose you could bring her up here.
[20:49] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:52] <Atago> ^_____^
[20:54] * Capt. David O`Cain walks over to Megan and Atago, "Congrats, Atago. You get to see him."
[20:59] <Atago> :D
[21:02] <Megan O`Cain> Well, how about that? Think you'll be alright down here, little brother?
[21:03] <Capt. David O`Cain> I think with Catri and Alex's help, I think so.
[21:03] <Megan O`Cain> I'll take you to him, Atago.
[21:05] <Atago> Very well. ^___^
[21:06] * Megan O`Cain picks up her rifle, "Shall we go now?"
[21:07] <Atago> Yes!
[21:07] * Atago heads off with Megan.
[21:08] *** Atago has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Big Sister Atago is here for you, little Shikikan. Tell me all of your troubles." ^___~)
[21:08] * Megan O`Cain escorts Atago to Antil
[21:08] <Capt. David O`Cain> HEY, KITS! KEEP NEGEV BUSY!
[21:10] * Negev suddenly appears out of nowhere and performs a FLYING TACKLE on Atago!!!
[21:10] *** Negev has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Get away from my husbando, you WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE~!!!!!!")
[21:11] *** And pause here for the night. Tomorrow we begin the Battle of the Crystal Caverns and the epic Assault of the Fabricator!
[21:11] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[21:12] *** SO gird your loins for epic battle with the Shadow Leviathans and WORSE!!
[21:14] *** Until then...good night and remember!
[21:14] *** DON'T!
[21:14] *** GET!!
[21:14] *** ELIMINATED!!
[19:28] * ~ And now...
[19:29] *** IT HAS BEGUN!!!!
[19:29] * Alldrogis Valkyvida seems unperturbed by the changes around him as the pressure builds and the ocean around him and U-556 changes
[19:32] * Oh hey, there's a couple of Descos down here, looking to get to that signal.
[19:33] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ O'Cain, we've descended below 100 fathoms and are on course to join the other Submarine Girls.
[19:33] * U-556 detects the Descos and pings them on her sonar.
[19:35] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Are those Descos approaching our position?
[19:35] * One of the Descos pings back.
[19:35] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Yeah? Where?
[19:36] * A Desco is right next to the ship.
[19:38] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Right alongside us now.
[19:38] <Juliet-73> ♦ Hello? Thought I heard a ping....
[19:39] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Greetings, Juliet-73. Are you one of the other cousins I heard about?
[19:39] * Capt. David O`Cain goes back to doling out munitions to the Kansen at Iron Blood's base
[19:39] <Juliet-73> ♦ Indeed. I know three of my kin went ahead to try and locate a signal they heard...
[19:39] * Megan O`Cain is escorting Atago over to Antil
[19:40] *** Atago and Megan are both currently preoccupied by a Wild Negev Appearing!!! Who is now attempting to THROTTLE Atago!!
[19:43] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Right now an old friend and ally is in trouble far down below, Juliet-73. Anything you and your cousins can do to help us will be greatly appreciated.
[19:45] <Juliet-73> ♦ Understood.
[19:46] *** U-556 keeps descending, and soon you can make out several other forms remaining stationary in the water down below, all riding what look like cylindrical hydro-propulsion vehicles.
[19:46] *** It's the rest of the Submarine Girls of the various fleets, and they all look impatient.
[19:50] * Megan O`Cain fights Negev off, and calls for the kits to swarm her
[19:54] *** The largest of the Submarine Girls signals everyone. "Surcouf of Iris Libre here. We have been waiting your arrival most anxiously. I hope you bring with you ideas on how to get past that Chelicerate ahead of us."
[19:56] *** In the distance you do see another Big Ugly swimming around...as well as SOMETHING happening on the wrecked form of a certain Cobra-class Destroyer hanging over the edge down into the continental slope/
[20:02] * Juliet-73 gets in touch with her fellow Descos to try and figure out what's going on with the Destroyer.
[20:07] *** The Destroyer currently has THOUSANDS of Architect repair-drones scuttling all over it. They're in the process of doing something to the ship!
[20:10] <Juliet-73> ♦ .....repair drones, Architect-build.... are they trying to fix the vessel completely?
[20:12] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Why would they be interested in the wreck of that ship?
[20:13] *** Meanwhile, Negev is still wrestling with Megan while Atago breaks free and makes a mad dash for the Kommandant's Office!
[20:15] <Juliet-73> ♦ Hm..
[20:15] * Juliet-73 considers getting in closer to investigate.
[20:18] *** The Chelicerate starts moving towards Juliet-73!
[20:22] * Juliet-73 remains still, ready to counter if it decides to try and make a meal of her. If need be, she'll draw it away from Alldrogis.
[20:25] * The Chelicerate 's head suddenly splits open into four long bony spires with a nasty maw of sword-like teeth at the bottom as it picks up speed and accelerates towards Juliet-73!!
[20:26] * Juliet-73 blinks at this, and suddenly drops downwards diagonally to the left, using one of her eyes to fire a blinding beam at the monster! Time to go "I'mma Decoy! I'mma Decoy!"
[20:27] * Megan O`Cain throws a MEAN straight right towards Negev's face, followed up by a hard strike with the rifle stock
[20:28] * The Chelicerate doesn't seem especially affected by the beam and it turns to pursue!! It looks HUNGRY!!
[20:28] <Negev> OW!
[20:28] * Negev is rocked backwards by the impact, but that's not stopping her!
[20:28] <Negev> Outta my way! I have to stop that vile vixen!!!
[20:29] <Megan O`Cain> NEGEV, BACK OFF! NOW!! FINAL WARNING!
[20:29] * Juliet-73 very quickly works to lure it to an outcropping. She has an eyebeam ready to fire above her and drop a bigass rock on top of this thing when it gets too close!!
[20:32] <Forest Kits> final warning or you be PERME-Fluffy :D
[20:33] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Now. While it's distracted.
[20:34] * U-556 powers the MDH turbines of her shark into overdrive and DIVES downwards towards the massive jellyfish-like creature that's further below.
[20:34] * Megan O`Cain activates her Delta Cannon, and aims at Negev
[20:35] *** The rest of the Submarine Girls dive down too. The huge Vent-Garden moored itself over a geothermal vent, its tentacles buried into the rocky floor, but near the base a number of wide fissures have opened up.
[20:36] *** As everyone gets closer, you can see that very warm water is flowing freely up through the fissures!
[20:36] <Negev> >:[
[20:36] * Negev stops with extreme reluctance.
[20:42] <Megan O`Cain> So, what'll it be, psychopath?
[20:47] <Forest Kits> :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3 :3
[20:48] <Negev> I'm stopping! I'm stopping!
[20:49] <Megan O`Cain> Wise choice. (starts walking to Atago) Kits, keep an eye on her.
[20:52] *** Atago has vanished!
[20:53] * Megan O`Cain quickly heads to Antil's office
[20:58] *** Oh no!! You discover that Chibi-Sylvester has been caught and captured by a Wild Atago and is currently being grappled and restrained by her!!!!
[20:58] <Atago> ^____^
[20:58] <@spiritflame> ATTENTION: Chibi-Sylvester is already registered. Check your password or enter a new name.
[20:59] <Chibi-Sylvester> @___@
[20:59] * Megan O`Cain stops in her tracks upon seeing Atago hugging Sylvester, and starts giggling
[20:59] * Atago is indeed given Chibi-Sylvester the full Big Sister treatment!
[21:01] <Megan O`Cain> Hey, Atago.
[21:07] <Atago> Hello~!
[21:07] <Atago> Just getting acquainted with this delightfully cute younger brother of the Shikikan!
[21:08] <Megan O`Cain> Heh, I see you found Sylvester.
[21:11] * Megan O`Cain looks to see where they are
[21:21] * Atago is right outside the door leading to the ladder going up
[21:22] *** Meanwhile, the Submarine Girls have reached the fissures and are sailing down through them. It's close, but the fissures are wide enough for a SeaTruck to carefully navigate through. The water temperature is rising too, meaning that something down below is heating up with water bigtime.
[21:24] *** Finally, the way opens up into a high cavern. A wide, thick column running from the floor to the ceiling dominates, and near its base are several more geothermal vents. There are also the remains of a thermal generator too!
[21:24] *** And the power lines trail away to an opening that leads into another cavern.
[21:26] *** Pause here for now since it's late. We shall proceed further tomorrow evening. The battle will commence TOMORROW since the Crystal Caverns are now very closeby
[21:35] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Cold Spring Church, NJ
[21:39] *** Georgia Banno has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:39] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Georgia Banno
[21:39] *** D. Kakaku has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:39] <@spiritflame> konbanwa D. Kakaku
[21:40] *** Priest has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:40] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Priest
[21:44] <Priest> I will inform the elder of your arrival.
[21:45] * Priest enters the church.
[21:45] <D. Kakaku> so mm, got anything to talk about while we wait?
[21:50] <Georgia Banno> hm?
[21:52] <D. Kakaku> well, anything at all, really
[21:56] * Priest opens the door to the church
[21:56] <Priest> the elder wants to see you *points to georgia*... and the Bishop wants to see you *points at D. Kakaku*
[21:58] <Georgia Banno> very well
[21:59] * D. Kakaku gets up and follows
[22:01] * Priest goes back inside
[22:05] * Priest motions at the two to follow him.
[22:08] * Georgia Banno follows
[22:14] * Priest stops at a set of locked doors
[22:15] <Priest> aperta
[22:16] *** The locked doors begin to open, revealing a stone walkway going down underground.
[22:19] * Georgia Banno walks down the steps
[22:24] <Priest> Belona Episcopi, qui adest.
[22:25] <???> Acolytus Judy a secunda habuit filium?
[22:26] <Priest> non, Belona. Quod nostrum est, comitante viro suo retentum, ... what is your name?
[22:26] <D. Kakaku> Daniel Kakaku... the second.
[22:26] <D. Kakaku> Daniel Kakaku... the second.
[22:26] <Priest> Daniel Kakaku II
[22:28] <???> KAKAKU?! Quod nomini ignominiae nam imbuit arma eius stirpe sui?
[22:29] * Priest looks at Daniel
[22:29] * Georgia Banno does not understand latin
[22:29] <Priest> you're going to have an interesting time with her.
[22:32] <Priest> she never did take kindly to seeing any members of his father's side of the family after the war.... Kakaku senior was your Father, right?
[22:32] <D. Kakaku> yeah
[22:32] <Priest> watch our for her fury.
[22:33] *** a withered, btu spry old woman steps out from behind a set of double doors.
[22:34] <Priest> Daniel Kakaku, she is Bishop Belona
[22:35] <Belona> Est via mea non habuit, nomen esset "Clay Liang"!
[22:35] <D. Kakaku> what?
[22:36] * Georgia Banno just listens
[22:38] <Belona> quae est carentia visionis Acoluthi, Presbyteris, seniores et Episcopi, iam pridem?
[22:38] <Belona> et indigentiam spirituum non possit videre?
[22:39] <Belona> vel aviam et docebit te mater tua?
[22:41] <Priest> remember that Soue refused to be an acolyte, Bishop Belona I doubt he would have been taught before schooling.
[22:41] <D. Kakaku> I have no idea what she is saying
[22:43] <Georgia Banno> neither do I
[22:45] <Priest> she has asked if he has been taught how to see spirits.
[22:47] <Georgia Banno> ahh..have you?
[22:48] <Priest> yes, we have.
[22:50] <Priest> no other church around here has the teachers to do so.
[22:51] * Georgia Banno nods
[22:54] <Belona> Si avus tuus, quia non est pater. paeninsula isto adhuc. fumus albus Lorem urbem adhuc.
[22:54] <Priest> please, don't bring up that event, no one needs to know about it.
[22:56] * Belona looks at the priest, then at Daniel.
[22:56] <Belona> Et docebit illum. Ut ostendam illi quanta spirituum. et illa in quo vadis?
[22:56] <Priest> the elder has requested her appearence.
[22:57] <Belona> tolle eam, et tollet eum.
[22:57] * Belona firecely grabs D. Kakaku's hand
[22:58] <D. Kakaku> ahh, ahh, ahh, oww
[22:58] * Belona drags him into the old doors, and, if you can see spirits, you can see an audience of spirits inside the room.
[22:59] * D. Kakaku is away: Hey, hey hey hey!!!!
[23:00] * Priest nods and continues on towards the Elder.
[23:00] * Georgia Banno follows
[23:05] *** soon, there is a grand stone cathedral, with a few rows of portraits and the elder at the far end.
[23:07] <Elder> forward, young lady.
[23:11] * Georgia Banno follows
[23:12] <Elder> I am informed that you possess the power to see spirits?
[23:13] <Georgia Banno> a small amount
[23:14] <Elder> were you taught or does it come naturally?
[23:15] <Georgia Banno> I was born with it..but I was taught to control it
[23:17] <Elder> you were born with it, therefore it came naturally to you.
[23:19] <Elder> tell me, out of all of the people on the hall of priests, bishops and acolytes, how many do you think were born with it?
[23:19] <Georgia Banno> that I cannot say
[23:20] <Georgia Banno> please tell me
[23:21] <Elder> zero
[23:21] <Georgia Banno> I see
[23:22] <Elder> I do sense a difference between you and my priest here
[23:23] <Georgia Banno> oh really?
[23:24] <Elder> yes.
[23:25] <Elder> but I fail to recall what it is, it has been so long since the Cythraul attack on the penninsula
[23:32] <Elder> more powerful than our holy water infused bullets
[23:33] * Georgia Banno nods, listening
[23:37] <Elder> have you heard of the Cythraul attack?
[23:40] <Georgia Banno> I'm afraid not
[23:41] <Elder> I would be suprised if you did, it was demanded to be hidden
[23:42] * Georgia Banno nods nods
[23:43] <Elder> the previous elder, the first one of our order, was a well traveled individual
[23:45] <Elder> he became impressed with what were they called, combatative reviewers?
[23:46] <Elder> he was... do you wish me to skip to the war or continue the build up?
[23:46] <Georgia Banno> please go on
[23:47] <Elder> I will
[23:49] <Elder> he was amazed with the sight of the big suites the reviewers used, he could not see what they were fighting, but he got knocked into a prepared pool of Holy water... and for but a faint moment, he could see what they were fighting, he knew it was some type of demon
[23:49] <Elder> but, when he regained his senses, he couldn't see it anymore
[23:50] <Elder> still, he knew what those suits were slashing and fighting against... he started some research into the phenomenon
[23:51] <Elder> he lacked something they, and by extension, you, have
[23:53] <Elder> during his research, the reviewers were disbanded. he would never be able to gather firsthand experience.
[23:54] <Elder> but it had inspired him to establish an order to protect the Cape May.... Island, which was once a penninsula
[23:55] * Georgia Banno nods, listening
[23:55] <Elder> he asked some fellow clergy to research other things about the reviewers, namely their suits and weapons, there was once again no first hand evidence, and little second hand information
[23:57] <Elder> he could not raise money for further research, and had to do with the resources locally.
[23:58] <Elder> then, he remembered his experience with the holy water, turning his attention to that, well, I'll continue tomorrow.
[23:59] <Elder> just knew that our methods, weaponry and people were not like them, but we try to be as close like them as possible.
[00:01] <Elder> make a living quarters for our guests, please, and I'll show them around tomorrow.
[00:01] <Georgia Banno> thank you
[00:01] <Elder> young lady, you are dismissed for now
[19:27] *** And we are back!!
[19:30] * Capt. David O`Cain is walking between the lines he has managed to form among the kansen. Iris is with the four squads acting as quartermasters of the muntions from Iron Blood's stores as well as the anti-demonic rounds brought along.
[19:38] * Alldrogis Valkyvida continues to descend downwards with U-556 and the other Sub-girls. They quickly traverse through the widening tunnel, following the power lines as they lead into a larger cavern. There's a thick column of rock reaching up in the middle of the cavern abouve halfway up to the ceiling.
[19:40] *** Wait! This is where Leady's base is located! It's right at the top of the column!
[19:42] *** The Sub-girl pack continue onwards, cruising past Leady's base at flank speed as they head directly towards the mouth of ANOTHER tunnel.
[19:43] *** The tunnel widens into another cavern that's split down the middle by a chasm that leads down.
[19:43] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Checking in. We're approaching the last tunnel that descends into the region designated the Crystal Caverns.
[19:46] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Understood, Alldrogis. The kansen at Iron Blood's base are getting fixed and loaded.
[19:46] * Megan O`Cain is with Atago
[19:49] <Chibi-Sylvester> Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee... @___@
[19:49] <Megan O`Cain> Come on, Atago. Let's get you to the Shikikan.
[19:52] <Atago> By all means!
[19:52] <Atago> ^___^
[19:53] * Megan O`Cain begins opening up doors as she escorts Atago
[19:58] * Atago follows along, still projecting that elegant and motherly aura.
[19:58] * Alldrogis Valkyvida continues to dive down deeper with U-556 and the other Submarine-Girls.
[19:59] <U-556> Pressure is building. We're down over 300 fathoms now.
[20:10] *** The chasm descends straight down for over fifty fathoms before leveling out. The water here has taken on a different consistency now, and a strange purplish light is dimly illuminating the entire area.
[20:13] * Chibi-Leady moves as quickly as she's able to, taking cover behind a huge crystal spire as she tries to avoid being detected by a Shadow Leviathan swimming past.
[20:22] <Megan O`Cain> You really gave Sylvester tight hugs from the looks of it.
[20:22] * Chibi-Leady leans out from behind the spire and takes aim with a missile launcher modified for underwater use!
[20:22] <Atago> He was simply overwhelmed by his new big sister's affection.
[20:25] <Megan O`Cain> Heh.
[20:27] <Megan O`Cain> We should be near the chamber.
[20:33] * Chibi-Leady FIRES at the Shadow Leviathan! The missile shoots forward, moving more slowly underwater, but it flies straight at the massive creature!
[20:37] *** The Shadow Leviathan curls suddenly, and the launched torpedo goes wide!!
[20:37] <Chibi-Leady> - Dammit!! -
[20:38] <Chibi-Leady> - I have no more heavy missiles to use. Are there ANY reinforcements coming my way? -
[20:40] * Megan O`Cain opens the door leading into the room Antil is holed up in
[20:41] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Hmmm? Oh, hello.
[20:45] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Who's that you've brought with you?
[20:47] <Megan O`Cain> Antil, this is Atago.
[20:50] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Is she one of the Kansen?
[20:50] <Atago> ^___^
[20:51] <Megan O`Cain> She is.
[20:56] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Sooo, why did you bring her here? Is there a problem?
[21:02] <Megan O`Cain> She felt you needed her gentle and astute attention. That is my understanding.
[21:10] <Chibi-AnTil (Shikikan)> Whaaaaa?
[21:11] * Atago suddenly GLOMPS AnTil and draws him into her warm and amble embrace!!
[21:13] * Megan O`Cain leans against a wall laughing
[21:15] * Capt. David O`Cain stops in his tracks a bit, and tilts his head to one side, "Just had a weird feeling something funny has happened."
[21:17] *** And pause here for the night since it's late on my end. We'll continue further tomorrow. Until then, good night everyone!
[20:18] *** AND WE ARE BACK!!
[20:18] <Chibi-Leady> - F[BLEEP]K! F[BLEEP]kf[BLEEP]kf[BLEEP]kf[BLEEP]kf[BLEEP]k! -
[20:19] *** The Shadow Leviathan lets out another unsettling shriek and turns towards the direction the missile came from, seeking its attacker.
[20:20] * From two separate directions what look like stalactites made of pure "F[BLEEP]K YOU!!!" shoot out at the Shadow Leviathan, aiming for its eyes!!
[20:21] * Chibi-Leady switches weapons to a Volley Gun; a high-powered rapid-fire laser weapon that's basically an overcharged laser rifle designed to fill the role of a squad automatic weapon. And yes, it's been modified to fire in the blue-green frequency.
[20:23] *** The Shadow Leviathan has a few ROWS of red-glowing eyes on its head...and quite possibly along the length of its body too!
[20:24] *** The Shadow Leviathan ROARS in genuine pain as it takes a hit in one of its eye clusters!
[20:24] * From two other different directions, more stalactites fly! Lookit 'em go, like little torpedos of ocular destruction!
[20:25] *** A pair of supercavitating torpedoes streak forward and DETONATE near the Leviathan's mouth!!
[20:28] *** The Shadow Leviathan SHOOTS forward, aiming in the direction of where the nearest stalactite came from!!
[20:29] * Something waits.... and waits.... and then ascends at the first good moment, to trigger a larger rock to fall upon its head!
[20:32] * U-556 rides forward on her shark, head down and accelerating at maximum speed. Behind her, the other Submarine Girls fan out as well - I-168, I-19, Albacore, I-25, I-26, I-56, I-58, Dace, Cavalla, Surcouf, Bluegill, and Torricelli.
[20:32] <Dace> ♦ Break and attack!!
[20:33] <Albacore> ♦ Yeah! Gato-class sortie!!
[20:35] <Torricelli> ♦ Ending stealth annnnnddd...
[20:36] *** ALL of the Submarine Girls join in the attack, launching torpedo spreads from different angles and blasting at it with blue-green lasers, hitting over and over again, raking its serpentine form with explosions and beam strikes.
[20:37] * The Shadow Leviathan has a TOUGH head! It shrieks in pain from the impact, clearly injured, but tries to clamp onto its attacking with its claws and spreads through maw-spines wide as it tries to BITE!
[20:38] * Two other Descos, Queen-01 and Zepp-82 rain down a gigantic spike to hopefully impale its midsection and pin it to the sea floor!
[20:42] * The Shadow Leviathan SQUEALS horrifically and blue-tinted blood spreads in a great cloud as the spike PARTIALLY impales it. Damn, it's hide is like battleship plating and it's segmented like the body of a centipede.
[20:45] <Queen-01> ♦ ....that is some thick skin.
[20:45] <Chibi-Leady> ...
[20:46] * Chibi-Leady starts moving forward, using her jump-jets to leap across the battle while the Shadow Leviathan is distracted and continues to stomp forward.
[20:46] <Chibi-Leady> - I need a direction. Has anyone found a route further downwards toward the Fabricator? -
[20:47] <Faria-2> ♦ I think there is one around this area. Queen and Zepp also took notice of what sounds like a distress signal....
[20:48] * Chibi-Leady pauses to turn and fire a blast from her Volley Laser at the Leviathan. A barrage of rapid-pulse blue-green lasers surge out and hit the thing's hide, cutting a deep line across its back.
[20:48] <Chibi-Leady> - Hurry. Lead me there. -
[20:49] *** There's a ripple ahead, then a wave of displaced water hits everyone like a strong breeze. Something is moving through the water and it's BIG
[20:50] * Faria-2 goes to lead Leady towards the aforementioned passage. At first glance, one would've looked right over it, considering the lovely crystal blocking it.
[20:51] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Attention! Aim for the MOUTH of that creature. It's the ONE spot that isn't armored!
[20:54] *** Remember what one Subnautica expert determined at 5:50 on the replay
[20:57] * Queen-01 and Zepp-82 get an idea. From the Usatako masses upon their backs, the top tendrils open up like mouths.... and out pop teeny-tiny Desco-replicas! Hundreds of 'em quickly go to swarm down the Leviathan's mouth as some branch off to try and hold its mouth open!
[20:59] *** The Shadow Leviathan starts trying to swallow the Mini-Descos. Watch out! Past that big sucker-hole of a mouth it's a VERY short trip right into the stomach of the thing and a bath of POWERFUL digestive enzymes!!
[21:01] * The Mini-Descos were counting on that, gladly letting themselves get swallowed up. They're about to make the Shadow Leviathan "see-four", if you catch my meaning!
[21:01] * Chibi-Leady keeps moving forward, determined to reach that tunnel that leads deeper down!
[21:03] * The Mini-Descos end up in the stomach, and then......................................... tick tick KA-BOOOOOOM!!! That is one of the spiciest meat-a-balls~
[21:04] * Faria-2 keeps leading Leady over to the passage. A bit further should do it.
[21:05] *** The Shadow Leviathan vomits up a MASSIVE gout of undigested matter and blood, thrashing wildly for a full minute. Then it goes still and slowly sinks to the bottom.
[21:06] *** Dammit. ANOTHER Shadow Leviathan streaks forward out of the gloom ahead!!
[21:07] *** It's bearing down on Leady!!
[21:07] <Chibi-Leady> - Oh crap-o-matic -
[21:07] * Faria-2 quickly turns and fires a scattering-beam at its eyes to blind it!
[21:14] * Queen-01 and Zepp-82 quickly provide assistance with a series of sharp rocks being fired at the Leviathan. (Good grief where'd that one come from?!)
[21:41] *** And pause here for now, since it's a good spot for it.
[21:43] *** Sorry about the delay, but I had to take care of something on my end.
[21:43] *** Good night everyone!
[19:33] *** Annnnnnnnnd we are BACK!!! And I'll be keeping interruptions as NEGLIGIBLE as possible.
[19:34] * Chibi-Leady takes a step back, bracing herself as she fires a continuous burst of las-rounds into the Shadow Leviathan's head and maw as it bears down at her!!
[19:39] * Queen-01 and Zepp-82 try to impale the Leviathan from below, jutting up large rocks with their tendrils! For such little things they crazy stronk!!
[19:43] *** The Shadow Leviathan shrieks as it's wounded, but keeps going on pure inertia and momentum!
[19:45] * Chibi-Leady cries out as the maw-spines chomp down onto her and she's scooped up!!! The spines close around her and start pushing her towards the massive hole in the center of the oriface, which starts suppurating in eagerness to ingest her!!!
[19:46] <Chibi-Leady> D:
[19:47] * Chibi-Leady cries out more as thick blue slime is vomited out onto her, coating her armor! From inside she starts sensing outer hull integrity dropping as the acids start to damage the ceramite!
[19:50] <Chibi-Leady> - Help!!!!! -
[19:53] *** A volley of torpedoes DETONATES around the Shadow Leviathan!
[19:59] * Queen-01 calls in some help --- Carina-21 and Omoi-00 send Mini-Descos to detonate right on the Leviathan's eyes! Meanwhile, Yusa-44 dives into the Leviathan to pull Leady out........ and leave behind the most explosive of snacks!
[20:01] *** The Shadow Leviathan shrieks in agony and rears back, letting go of Leady and letting her fall to the floor.
[20:01] * Chibi-Leady is starting to panic as she quickly assesses that her armor has been badly damaged!
[20:02] <Chibi-Leady> - S[BLEEP]ts[BLEEP]ts[BLEEP]t!! I've gotta keep going! -
[20:02] * Yusa-44 swims over to assess the damage as Faria-02 produces its own Mini-Descos to fly down the Leviathan's gullet!
[20:04] *** I-26 screams as she's engulfed in an explosion that wrecks her mount and inflicts serious damage on her body!!
[20:05] *** Bluegill takes a direct hit that knocks her out of action. Savaged by the explosion, she sinks rapidly down to the floor of the cavern.
[20:06] *** Queen-01...INCOMING SUPERCAVITATING TORPEDO!!
[20:06] * Queen-01 sees it incoming! She quickly tries to divert it towards the Leviathan --- hopefully to make it hit a weak spot?
[20:06] *** Meanwhile, the Shadow Leviathan gulps down a meal of Mini-Descos and hunts for more foes.
[20:07] * Queen-01 tries to time it.... if she can make the torpedo hit the Leviathan, it should make the Mini-Descos go up like the Tsar-Bomba..... now that's a meal I'd call death!
[20:09] *** The torpedo EXPLODES as soon as you get close to it, Queen-01. It had a mass-reactive trigger!!
[20:12] * Queen-01 is blown back! @_@
[20:13] <Albacore> ♦ What the...?!
[20:13] * Faria-02 detonates the Mini-Descos! It won't be as much of a strong reaction, but still having your internal organs roasted to that degree can't be healthy!
[20:14] *** I-56 screams as she's struck by a torpedo blast that takes her out of commission!!
[20:14] <Faria-02> ♦ Who's firing on us?!
[20:15] *** The Shadow Leviathan WAILS in the most unnerving fashion as it sustains fatal internal injuries from the explosions! It turns and swims rapidly away, attempting to escape.
[20:15] * Faria-02 has Yusa-44 and Carina-21 check for whoever is trying to get them killed.
[20:17] * Alldrogis Valkyvida scans the area ahead.
[20:17] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ CONTACT!!!!!
[20:19] * Alldrogis Valkyvida uploads the imagery from his Cyberhelm to all Sea-Dolls and Descos. Directly ahead are FOUR mini-subs of unknown manufacture. All of them are made of some kind of dark, semi-reflective material that has a strange oily sheen and dull green running lights.
[20:19] <Faria-02> ♦ ...what in the world?
[20:30] *** The four mini-subs accelerate using the same kind of magneto-hydrojets that the Eisenblut sub-girls use for their Sharks, but much more compact and energy efficient! Two of the mini-subs fire another volley of torpedoes at everyone!!
[20:32] * Chibi-Leady recovers from her surprise first and opens fire with her Volley-Laser, focusing the beam on the side of one of the attacking mini-subs. After a few seconds, there's a massive CRUMP sound that transmits through the water from it as its outer hull is breached and something important DETONATES!!!
[20:33] *** The damaged mini-sub suffers a secondary explosion that blows out part of its side and it careens into the side of a large crystal formation, breaking apart on impact!
[20:36] * Faria-02 works with some of the other Descos to coordinate and bring down the subs by making the torpedos head right back for them! Of course, there will be a nice feint maneuver or two involved!
[20:38] *** The rest of the Sub-girls break and scatter, attempting to evade among the crystal formations!
[20:41] *** S[BLEEP]t! Redirecting the torpedoes back at the mini-subs won't work! The mass-reactive triggers keep exploding whenever any Descos get too close!
[20:42] * Alldrogis Valkyvida takes aim with his own rifle and starts shooting back at the subs!
[20:43] <Faria-02> ♦ Proximity-triggers, eh....
[20:43] *** The rest of the Sub-girls regroup and start fighting back. U-556 fires the last of her own torpedoes at one of the mini-subs, then accelerates towards Leady and Alldrogis.
[20:43] * Faria-02 gets another idea. She tries manipulating the water-currents surrounding the torpedo to disrupt its path!
[20:46] *** Surcouf, Cavalla, and Dace concentrate fire on another sub. It swiftly turns to avoid their much-slower torpedoes...but turns DIRECTLY into the line-of-fire of both Torricelli and I-58! And their torpedoes are direct hits!
[20:47] <Albacore> ♦ What ARE these things?! Where did they come from!?
[20:52] *** Meanwhile, Chibi-Leady keeps advancing, but she's moving much slower now and a steady trail of bubbles and dark liquid is rising up from creases in her power armor.
[20:57] * Queen-01 and Yusa-44 head over to back up Leady. Zepp-82 assists in taking down those submarines.
[20:58] * Alldrogis Valkyvida moves in closer to Leady as well, continuously firing and taking down another mini-sub.
[20:58] *** One of the mini-subs angles towards Zepp-82 and opens fire on her with a blue-green laser!
[21:00] * Zepp-82 quickly darts around to throw off its aim.... all the while Faria-02 plots to sneak a few Mini-Descos onto it while it's distracted.
[21:02] *** THe mini-sub doesn't seem to detect the Tiny-Descos clamping onto it.
[21:07] * Faria-02 waits until the Mini-Descos are in proper position...... and then SHA-BOOM!
[21:10] *** The mini-sub is blown apart!!
[21:10] *** That leaves one mini-sub left!
[21:10] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Leady, what's your status?
[21:12] <Chibi-Leady> - My armor's integrity has been compromised. Pressure plating is damaged. I'm now below maximum safe depth! -
[21:13] <Queen-01> ♦ Yusa-44 and I can lend assistance. Faria-02, can you handle the remaining sub?
[21:13] <Chibi-Leady> - Too many systems are failing. This armor hasn't been properly maintained in years! I've been keeping it functioning with hardly anything more than duct tape, booze polishing, and bad language! -
[21:13] <Faria-02> ♦ Understood. Zepp-82 and I should be able to handle this.
[21:14] *** Albacore and Surcouf join Zepp and Faria in chasing down the last mini-sub.
[21:14] <Queen-01> ♦ Then let us make haste to this passage.
[21:16] <Chibi-Leady> - It won't last! My body is NOT a Deep Submersible design! -
[21:16] <Chibi-Leady> - Newsflash...this body I have is basically a Destroyer-model chassis! I... -
[21:17] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Eject from your suit. I have an idea.
[21:17] <Queen-01> ♦ Then perhaps we must turn back?
[21:18] <Chibi-Leady> - If we turn back now then we'll lose our chance! -
[21:19] <Faria-02> ♦ Mr. Alldrogis? Your plan?
[21:20] * Chibi-Leady hesitates, then does as Alldrogis commands and starts the detachment sequence of her armor. First the helmet unlocks and opens, then the shoulderplates disengage and fall free. Other armor pieces begin to drop off as well.
[21:21] * Chibi-Leady finally starts pulling herself out of the armor as the seals on the back and sides blow open. God, the armor is HUGE yet she herself is so SMALL by comparison!
[21:21] * Alldrogis Valkyvida moves in behind Leady, then GRABS her and pulls her against himself.
[21:22] *** Nanopaste begins to flow out of Alldrogis and washes over Chibi-Leady in swiftly growing quantities.
[21:23] <Chibi-Leady> - WhaaaaaaaAAAAAAAA~?! -
[21:23] * Chibi-Leady struggles a little as she's quickly engulfed in nano-paste, then absorbed INTO Alldrogis' body.
[21:24] * Alldrogis Valkyvida reforms his body, resetting his external appearance and forming it back into the plated armor setting it had been previously.
[21:25] <Chibi-Leady> - .....O-kay. This...is a...new experience for me. -
[21:29] <Faria-02> ♦ .....wha....
[21:29] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ I'll keep you protected from this pressure for a while. Think of it like this...
[21:30] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ That undersea suit you had was modified Mark-4 Astartes power armor.
[21:31] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Consider me...the Mark-4000 series.
[21:31] * Alldrogis Valkyvida takes a few steps forward, moving and shifting his body a little as he makes readjustments.
[21:33] <Chibi-Leady> - HEEEYYY~!! Watch it! That felt super weird and borderline ecchi there! I feel emotionally undressed here! -
[21:34] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ You're a full-conversion cyborg now, Leady. And if memory serves me correctly you were NEVER particularly modest especially when it came to your wild fantasies about Haruka Tenou.
[21:37] <Chibi-Leady> - And you're a self-aware mass of self-replicating nanites around a formerly-organic skeleton. Which I can feel parts of poking me right now, thankyouverymuch. -
[21:39] <Chibi-Leady> - Sooo what, am I like Tony Stark wearing an Allodon nano-suit now? -
[21:41] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ Not quite. You're a passenger. I'll carry you to our destination, then force you out. Just relax and enjoy the ride for now. If we come to a situation where you might need to manipulate some equipment that you have previous experience with, I'll let you fully access my hands.
[21:42] <Chibi-Leady> - Okay. -
[21:43] <Chibi-Leady> - Just...by force me out I HOPE you don't mean CRAP me out. I got swallowed once by a squid-shark and it was the most disturbing experience on my LIFE!!! I'm talking VORE here! Not cool! -
[21:44] <Chibi-Leady> - Then getting pooped out later on was less fun. -
[21:44] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> ♦ TMI, Leady. Let's move. Quickly.
[21:45] * Alldrogis Valkyvida crouches down and unfurls his wings. The membrane starts to glow faintly, then with a powerful flap Alldrogis ROCKETS forward!!
[21:50] *** U-556, Surcouf, Albacore, Cavalla, Duce, and I-58 follow, with the rest of the Sub-girls staying behind to retrieve the damaged girls and bring them back to safety.
[21:50] *** MEANWHILE, TOPSIDE....
[21:54] * Long Island ,one of the Light Carrier girls of the Eagle Union, is part of a patrol near the island when one of her surveillance drones sends back a signal!
[21:54] <Long Island> ...
[21:54] <Long Island> ♦ CONTACTS!!!!!!
[21:54] <Long Island> uwaaa!
[21:54] <Long Island> >__<
[21:55] <Long Island> ♦ Multiple contacts inbound from the south!! They look like...naval vessels surfacing!
[21:56] <UMP-9> D:
[21:56] <UMP-45> ...
[21:56] <UMP-45> ...scheisse
[21:57] *** AND PAUSE HERE FOR NOW!!!
[21:57] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Say again?
[21:58] <~> ♦ Ranger here. I can confirm several incoming naval vessels of unknown configuration.
[21:59] <Capt. David O`Cain> ♦ Understood. Keep watch, and keep us posted.
[21:59] <~> ♦ Zuikaku reporting. I see them as well. I count eight of them. Six small and two larger vessels.
[22:00] * Capt. David O`Cain is barking orders at his crew to hurry loading the Queen's Bounty
[22:00] <~> ♦ ...I just lost contact with my long-range drones!
[22:01] <~> ♦ Ranger here. My scout drones are gone!
[22:01] <~> ♦ Zuikaku again! My drones were just shot down! Contacts are hostile!
[22:03] <~> ♦ Enterprise calling with a priority! The Plague Leviathan has become active! It's MOVING now! The cave it's trapped inside of won't hold it much longer!
[22:03] *** And NOW pause for the night!
[22:04] *** I won't be able to get on tomorrow night, so we'll continue on Monday. Until then, please take care.
[22:29] *** and now, Night Two of The Cape May Discovery!
[22:30] <Elder> /mr is going around with Georgia and the Priest.
[22:32] *** Georgia Banno has joined #suburbansenshi3
[22:32] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Georgia Banno
[22:32] * Elder *^
[22:32] <Elder> the night sky, it is as peaceful as it always is.
[22:33] * Georgia Banno nods
[22:34] <Elder> it was nighttime when he remembered what the holy water could do.
[22:37] <Elder> some years after his inspiration disbanded, the first Cythrauls started popping up in Cape May
[22:37] * Georgia Banno listens
[22:40] <Elder> he started asking some of his fellow clergy to bring their acolytes for training, Belona was one such acolyte.
[22:42] <Elder> Fierce, can handle her fellow acolytes, and quickly progressed amongst the rest
[22:45] * Elder walks past a row of portraits, showing a picture of Young Belona, as well as others.
[22:49] *** the portraits are assembled in a section labeled "1936 - 1950"
[22:59] *** the acolytes in order are
Belona Margiotta (1936)
Alicia Liang, Née Yates(1937)
more names line the list up to 1950...
[22:59] * Georgia Banno looks at each
[23:01] *** Belona's portrait really looks a lot like her, with almost no wrinkles and a slightly cherrier disposition, Annabelle's is a bit too serious, and Alicia's is a bit nervous, with a few facial features you could have seen on D. Kakaku.
[23:01] *** also noting these pictures are in sepia tone
[23:03] <Elder> the acolytes.
[23:07] <Elder> Belona is the last of the originals, I have heard that Alicia wasn't too bad in honing her skills either.
[23:10] * Georgia Banno notes all this
[23:12] * Elder soon walks past another section "Acolytes, 1950 - 1970"
[23:15] <Elder> Alicia went over to (Insert European Country) after the second great war, and did not return until 1960, but she was preparing some of them to become acolytes themselves, in the end, only one chose to take up the mantle out of 5
[23:16] *** in the section, you see a color picture with "Judith Liang (1967)"
[23:16] <Elder> she was, also our youngest acolyte to join, being only 8 when she did
[23:17] * Georgia Banno looks at the picture
[23:20] *** Judith's facial features match D. Kakaku's a lot more than Alicia's, but there are a lot that are also hers uniquely.
[23:20] *** and with the picture being in Color, we can also definitely see where the hair color comes from.
[23:27] <Elder> proficient with a dagger, but had a bit too much passion in her work.
[23:30] <Elder> but, her work got interrupted in 1976.
[23:31] <Elder> she was working on a case concerning a cythraul uprising in Dennis Township that had moved close to Cape May.
[23:33] <Elder> but, our rules do not allow for parents to enter or return, and if someone was to become one so soon, their acolyte carrer must end.
[23:34] <Elder> and Judith's daughter, Soue, did not want to carry the mantle, we had all lost contact since then.
[23:35] <Elder> her death in '99, did not help any matters either.
[23:36] <Priest> the Cythraul on Washington Ave, It lunged at Soue's son for a reason.
[23:37] <Elder> I don't think... well, hmm...
[23:37] <Elder> could a remnant of the spiritual battle of 1941 be it?
[23:38] *** will you raise a question about it?
[23:39] <Georgia Banno> go on?....what of a battle
[23:40] <Priest> that is locked information.
[23:41] <Elder> information locked because of the Army and Navy
[23:52] <Elder> it was the final war of the penninsula.
[23:52] <Elder> and the first war of the Island
[00:00] <Elder> The holy trinity of the Gun, Dagger and Shield that won the war are on display at the mayor's office.
[00:04] <Elder> Anabelle, the shield, Belona, the dagger, and Alicia, the gun.
[00:08] <Elder> now, I wasn't told the specifics of the war, but the end result was that Cape May was forced to switch to the worldwide standard of energy generation and to have the canal built from he bay to the ocean.
[00:20] * Georgia Banno listens to all this..trying to remember it all
[00:32] <Elder> Mayor... Kakaque or somewhat?
[00:42] <Elder> said the whole city wuold be put under surveillance unless the mayor agreed to those conditions
[01:13] <Georgia Banno> I see
[01:20] <Elder> tomorrow, we'll all head there for you to see them
[01:21] <Georgia Banno> very well
[01:22] *** D. Kakaku has joined #suburbansenshi3
[01:22] <@spiritflame> konbanwa D. Kakaku
[01:22] <D. Kakaku> ughhhh, so exhausting
[01:25] <D. Kakaku> was there anything besides getting holy water in your eyes like eyedrops?
[01:30] <Elder> only enough for your eyes to start producing it on their own.
[01:33] * Priest nods
[01:34] <Priest> we all underwent through the same procedure.
[01:35] <Priest> and we all pick which weapon training we wish to undergo.
[01:36] <Priest> once you begin to produce enough holy water to not need the eyedrops treatment, we can proceed to which one you wish to undergo.
