-- Kamesennin on the Henshin sequence
welcome to #suburbansenshi3
[21:46] <Dr. Sakamoto> The watch made you change size? Is that what you are saying?
[21:46] <D. Kakaku> oh yeah, it does.
[21:46] * Operating Room Staff can be heard whispering things along the likes of "no wonder," with hushed voices.
[21:47] <D. Kakaku> hmm?
[21:48] <Dr. Sakamoto> Mr. Kakaku, none of us ever thought we'd work on a metahuman, and this has... changed our lives. Do you mind... terribly... terribly, if I have a word with my staff in private?
[21:48] <D. Kakaku> sure, I don't mind.
[21:48] <Dr. Sakamoto> I'm so sorry, but we HAVE to decide what to do, and how to best take care of you? I'll turn off the microphone, during that time.
[21:48] <Dr. Sakamoto> THank you SO SO MUCH!
[21:49] <D. Kakaku> (metahuman? never did I think I'd be called that.)
[21:49] <Operating Room Staff> We are sorry it's just... our lives are kind of in danger now, and we need to---there's no clear thing to know what to do! We won't hurt you!
[21:49] <Dr. Sakamoto> Yes, we promise. We won't hurt you. Do you mind not hearing what we are saying, for just a couple of minutes?
[21:50] <Dr. Sakamoto> We'd never ask for this under lesser circumstances. Please?
[21:51] <D. Kakaku> I don't mind
[21:51] <Operating Room Staff> Thank you SO MUCH!
[21:51] <Dr. Sakamoto> Don't worry, Mr. Kakaku--we have JUST the thing to help you pass the time!
[21:51] <D. Kakaku> okay
[21:52] *** A second pair of lenses is lowered onto the goggles that D.Kakaku is wearing, and some cords plugging in can be heard.
[21:53] <Dr. Sakamoto> Okay, perfect so far, now bring those other ones here.
[21:53] *** D.Kakaku's vision goes dark once more.
[21:53] <Operating Room Staff> Mr. Kakaku---would you prefer darkness, or something to keep your attention?
[21:54] *** Thickly padded headphones are gently placed over D.Kakaku's ears by unseen hands.
[21:55] <D. Kakaku> keep my attention
[21:56] <Very very faint muffled voice> Whatever you want! Please just relax and don't worry. We just need to decide what to do, now that we know you are metahuman.
[21:56] <Very very faint muffled voice> Yes, but everything will be just fine.
[21:56] <Very very faint muffled voice> /Yes, everything will be fine.
[21:56] <Very very faint muffled voice> Here you go.
[21:57] <Very very faint muffled voice> A firefly-like flash winks into life in D.Kakaku's field of view.
[21:58] *** The headphones start pouring white noise into D.Kakaku's hears, softly at first, but then louder, until he can hear nothing in the room.
[21:58] *** light patterns, obviously blinking like fireflies, dance through D.Kakaku's darkened field of view.
[21:58] <D. Kakaku> oooh, very nice.
[22:01] *** The white noise only increases in response to D.Kakaku's words. Dancing lights, sometimes faint, sometimes up close and vividly illuminated as fireflies, blink at random across the goggles strapped over his eyes.
[22:01] <D. Kakaku> so pretty.
[22:02] * Very very faint muffled voice cannot be heard at all anymore.
[22:03] *** The white noise continues, but softly, there is the growing presence of another pattern---a different musical tone chimes each time there is a light.
[22:04] *** The lights and accompanying music notes that play along with the flashes escalate and slow, recede and approach, and change pitch along with color.
[22:04] * D. Kakaku is liking the light show.
[22:05] <Very very faint muffled voice> The auditory and visual symphony D.Kakaku is subjected to continues, while he lays motionless, becoming more and more complicated and engrossing.
[22:07] *** The blinking and flashing continue, without anything else to see or hear or do, filling the entirety of D.Kakaku's perception.
[22:08] <D. Kakaku> ooooh, awesome
[22:09] *** The white noise stops.
[22:10] <Loud clear voice from everywhere at once> Mr. Kakaku, we have been discussing things, and we feel we need to solicit your opinion on something: "Would you be willing, under any circumstances, for us to report that you are a superhero? Er---augmented human, in order to explain what has happened?
[22:12] <D. Kakaku> augmented human is fine, no super hero
[22:13] <Loud clear voice from everywhere at once> Well----we are just trying to cover ourselves. We could always reinstate you in the test, and put plausible deniability upon this one, but if you were willing to have your superpowers clinically tested in this setting, with us as your medical staff, that would also be wonderful. Are you okay with your metabolic abilities being made known to our superiors for testing purposes, or do we need to erase what has happened?
[22:15] <D. Kakaku> can we do both?
[22:15] <D. Kakaku> we can clinically test them.
[22:15] <Loud clear voice from everywhere at once> You mean test them later? But ALSO obscure what has happened? Yes... I think. If you trust us still, absolutely, we can do that.
[22:16] <D. Kakaku> I trust you completely.
[22:16] <Loud clear voice from everywhere at once> Then is that what you want to do?
[22:16] <D. Kakaku> yes, please
[22:17] <Loud clear voice from everywhere at once> You are such a great guy---you have no idea... no idea how much you are helping us.
[22:17] *** A hand can be felt, for a moment, patting D.Kakaku's forehead.
[22:18] <Loud clear voice from everywhere at once> Okay. We can do this. Just relaaaax, and we'll take care of everything, okay?
[22:18] <D. Kakaku> okay
[22:19] *** The overwhelming white noise returns, and the fireflies do too.
[22:21] *** A tone begins to be played in D.Kakaku's ears, which alternate back and forth, just barely audible over the white noise.
[22:23] <Loud clear voice from everywhere at once> What appears to be a sudden bright flash of light and loud buzz are pumped into the eyes and ears of D.Kakaku!
[22:23] *** ^
[22:23] * D. Kakaku doesn't move
[22:24] *** The tone and buzz are reapeated, louder and more intense this time.
[22:25] *** Another flash and siren-like sound interrupt the fireflies' dance, this louder than the first two.
[22:25] <D. Kakaku> hmmm?
[22:26] *** The abrupt sensations don't come back again, and the soft noise and flickering distant lights return once more.
[22:27] <D. Kakaku> ahhh.
[22:28] *** A minute or so passes without sensation but the soft white noise, accompanied by musical notes that match the soothing lights.
[22:30] * A breathing mask is now placed, gently but firmly, over D.Kakaku's nose and mouth.
[22:31] * D. Kakaku remains still
[22:33] *** Nothing else changes---there are no new sights, sounds, tastes, smells, or sensation. The concert of lights and sound go on.
[22:34] <D. Kakaku> hmhmmhmmm
[22:35] * The breathing mask starts emitting a increasingly noticeable, very sweet smell.
[22:37] *** D.Kakaku wakes up in hospital bed.
[22:37] <D. Kakaku> hmmm?
[22:38] <Doctor and Nurses> Good morning, Mr. Kakaku!
[22:39] <Doctor and Nurses> We are happy to see you have recovered! There were some irregularities in your test, however, that actually caused some hallucinations, so you might not remember it as it actually happened!
[22:39] <D. Kakaku> ah, okay
[22:41] <Doctor and Nurses> In FACT, we'd like you to return after we discharge you, in order to perform a psychological profile for further testing. We'll increase your payrate by five times if you are willing to volunteer for this.
[22:42] <D. Kakaku> I'm willing.
[22:42] <Doctor and Nurses> That's wonderful.
[22:43] <Doctor and Nurses> That's really wonderful. Your medical staff said that your test had an irregularity that was particularly useful in fine-tuning the capabilities of the automata. We would love for you to return.
[22:43] * Doctor and Nurses wink.
[22:43] <Doctor and Nurses> As soon as you stop feeling woozy, please feel free to check out with the nurse at the front desk. It's fine if you rest here for however long you like.
[22:43] <D. Kakaku> alright
[22:45] <Doctor and Nurses> Very well. Thank you for your time, and please enjoy the snacks in your room on your way out!
[22:45] * Doctor and Nurses bow politely, and leave the room.
[22:46] <D. Kakaku> alright
[22:51] * D. Kakaku stays in and enjoys a snack or 2

[18:07] * Mercurius Shin [Prince] slowly comes to and looks around and quickly realized he's tied to a chair.....
[18:07] * Mercurius Shin has moved to: [ ]
[18:07] <Mercurius Shin> ..what the Six....
[18:07] <Hooded Figure> so you're awake
[18:07] * Mercurius Shin looks and finds himself surrounded by several people dressed in business suits, wearing purple hoods
[18:07] <Mercurius Shin> .............
[18:07] <Mercurius Shin> so is this some kind of convention or...
[18:08] <Hooded Figure> I would save your humor till we are done with you, Shin
[18:08] <Mercurius Shin> joy..one of those types
[18:08] * Mercurius Shin grimaces, trying to struggle with the ropes
[18:09] <Hooded Figure> you will find them strong enough even to hold your kind
[18:09] <Mercurius Shin> ok..let's cut to the chase..what do you want?
[18:09] <Hooded Figure> Revenge against Ami Mizuno
[18:10] <Mercurius Shin> oh six-dammit...
[18:12] <Hooded Figure> (( scene on pause ))
[18:31] <Hooded Figure> (( Back ))
[18:31] <Hooded Figure> her shadow has cast itself against us for too long.....
[18:31] <Hooded Figure> once she knows you are here...she will....
[18:31] <Mercurius Shin> look....
[18:31] <Mercurius Shin> love the speech..but let me stop you there
[18:31] <Mercurius Shin> threatening me?..not..reallly going to work
[18:33] <Mercurius Shin> she's not going to come to my rescue.....the moment i'm gone long enough...she'll mourn yes..but she'll move on like she always does to the next attraction....happened with the Princess of Jupiter..happened with that...Television..guy I don't know his name......she'll be using her hello kitty within the hour....I am simply a psychic clone boy toy for her to faun over...
[18:33] <Hooded Figure> you're not a clone
[18:33] <Mercurius Shin> ....pardon?
[18:33] <Hooded Figure> you're not a clone......
[18:33] <Mercurius Shin> look...Ami tested me...several times...and I know for a fact....
[18:34] <Hooded Figure> like Mizuno herself.....her technology is a half thought out shadow of authenticity.....
[18:34] <Hooded Figure> your cells are saturated with Artron Energy...
[18:34] <Hooded Figure> in certain cases, that can give a false reading of clone tissue digeneration
[18:35] <Mercurius Shin> look if you're trying to bring me some hope..just forget it..like I said
[18:35] <Mercurius Shin> She isn't coming
[18:35] * Hooded Figure looks to the otehrs
[18:35] <Hooded Figure> ..well then
[18:35] <Hooded Figure> no sense in keeping you
[18:35] * Hooded Figure pulls out a gun and points it to Mercurius's forehead
[18:35] <Mercurius Shin> ...son of a...
[18:35] *** BANG
[19:02] * Mercurius Shin winces as a bright blue light shines in his eyes "ugh...look...I already said..."
[19:03] <Voice 1> ♦ he is awake
[19:03] * Mercurius Shin 's vision starts to clear and he finds himself in a hazy blue landscape...little brighter blue lights dart around him
[19:03] <Mercurius Shin> ...ok..where...what...
[19:04] <Voice 2> ♦ he is curious
[19:04] <Voice 1> ♦ logical. Such change of landscape is distressing to lower lifeforms
[19:05] <Mercurius Shin> oh wonderful.....judgemental voices...just what I need after I...
[19:05] <Mercurius Shin> ...wait...wasn't I...
[19:05] <Voice 1> ♦ correct.
[19:06] <Mercurius Shin> ..then how am I alive?....even at pointblank range...
[19:06] <Voice 2> ♦ to say that you are alive is a simplifcation
[19:07] <Mercurius Shin> so what am I then?
[19:07] <Voice 2> ♦ you are in a state I belive to be termed "near brain death"
[19:08] <Voice 2> ♦ the bullet passed through your skull and lodged itself within the center of your brain
[19:09] <Mercurius Shin> ..just what i need...LOOK...
[19:09] <Mercurius Shin> I would rather not be in this......
[19:09] <Mercurius Shin> whatever this place is.....
[19:09] <Mercurius Shin> and not know who the hell I'm talking to
[19:11] <Voice 1> ♦ we are the Risen of the Iceworld
[19:13] <Voice 2> ♦ I belive you termed us as the Evolved State of Mercurians
[19:13] <Mercurius Shin> whoa whoa whoa wait.....
[19:13] <Mercurius Shin> the eightfold empire!?
[19:13] <Mercurius Shin> I heard about you...weren't you all wiped off the face of your world?
[19:14] <Voice 1> ♦ Energy cannot be destroyed, only transferred to another state
[19:15] <Mercurius Shin> ok..got it...no I don't....um..ok so....mind telling me....what i'm doing here then?
[19:15] <Voice 2> ♦ we are preserving your mental quantium state...until such time as your physical form can be recovered....
[19:15] <Mercurius Shin> alright...so...can I ask why?
[19:16] <Voice 2> ♦ you intrigue us
[19:16] <Mercurius Shin> pardon?
[19:17] <Voice 1> ♦ We have observed your role alongside the former physical form of our ambassador and your relationsihp is quite illogical...
[19:18] <Voice 2> ♦ in all comparsion to previous physical interests of her, you are quite lacking
[19:19] <Voice 1> ♦ you are physically weaker then the Princess of Jupiter
[19:21] <Voice 2> ♦ your intelligence is far below that of Gil Grissom
[19:22] <Voice 1> ♦ your psychic abilities pale in comparison to Ryo Arawa
[19:22] <Voice 2> ♦ your...
[19:22] <Mercurius Shin> ALRIGHT I GET IT IT GET IT
[19:22] <Mercurius Shin> *I
[19:23] <Voice 1> ♦ and yet she remains sitll willing to remain attached to you
[19:24] <Mercurius Shin> look if you have so many questions.....why not just ask her?
[19:25] <Voice 1> ♦ that is..problematic
[19:25] <Mercurius Shin> pardon?
[19:26] <Voice 2> ♦ after the previous bonding with her physical form, she has made adjustments which prevents us from attempting to once more bond with her
[19:26] <Mercurius Shin> ...in other words she put you under a psychic restraining order....that's par the course...
[19:27] * Mercurius Shin pauses..then looks up
[19:27] <Mercurius Shin> I have.a question....
[19:30] <Mercurius Shin> before I took the bullet to the brain...they said something about........atron energy..and me not being a clone
[19:30] <Mercurius Shin> ...do you know anything about that?
[19:30] <Voice 1> ♦ like us, you are in a state of Quantum Uncertently Flux
[19:31] <Mercurius Shin> ...which means?
[19:32] <Voice 2> ♦ your emergence has precluded your temporal existance
[19:34] * Mercurius Shin thinks this is worse then Queen Maia
[19:34] <Mercurius Shin> so wait wait wait....
[19:35] <Mercurius Shin> you're saying
[19:35] <Mercurius Shin> ....that i'm existing....before I'm existing?
[19:38] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:38] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Solarchos
[19:38] <Voice 2> ♦ your original temporal state has been distrupted but as of now, you have not been restored to your proper status
[19:38] <Voice 2> (( UM ))
[19:38] <Voice 2> (( UM UM ))
[19:38] <Solarchos> (( Oops! Sorry about that! ))
[19:39] <Solarchos> (( I shall withdraw and let you continue. ))
[19:41] <Mercurius Shin> ...this..this is crazy
[19:44] * Mercurius Shin tries to wrap his brain around it..
[19:44] *** outside somewhere..Mercuriu's body lays on the side of an abandoned road
[19:46] * Solarchos is on the bridge of the Hellesponte, reviewing all of the information coming in now. The overall mood isn't good.
[19:51] *** The hololithic displays, all updated constantly by Hellesponte-AI, show the relative positions of the other Federation vessels. So far, the flotilla consists of the Hellesponte, the Rebellious Command, the light cruisers Fenris and Valrigis, a half-dozen Exeter-class destroyers, a pair of Sword frigates, and a pair of Abh Roth-class patrol cruisers that were in a position to respond quickly.
[19:55] * Hellesponte-AI stands nearby, her eyes closed and twitching a little as she keeps the rest of the ship's systems running. She brings up the latest data on the Imperial ships.
[19:58] *** The holo-displays change, showing the latest information from long-range sensors and probes. The Imperial fleet is larger, consisting of a single Cruiser-scale ship that looks like it could be a Lunar-class cruiser, eight light cruiser that all bear the distinctive silhouettes of being from the Voss forge-world (meaning either Endeavour, Endurance, and/or Valiant-class ships), and almost TWENTY escort-scale ships.
[20:00] <Hellesponte-AI> It would appear that Helmawr's 24th child brought a whole sub-sector battlefleet with him. We should feel honored that he holds us in such high regard.
[20:00] <Solarchos> Tactical assessment based on the latest data?
[20:02] <Hellesponte-AI> After some thorough investigation, I believe that some of those escort-class ships might actually be transports. They're maneuvering too slow to be frigates.
[20:04] <Solarchos> They could just be moving slower in order to throw us off.
[20:06] <Hellesponte-AI> Probability: low. Upon translating back into normal space, the rest of their ships moved as fast as they could to the location of that cruiser. Especially the light cruisers. That main cruiser is of high priority to them, which is why I designated it as Helmawr's vessel.
[20:07] <Solarchos> What do we know of this particular Helmawr sibling? Anything?
[20:10] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ I can help you there. Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th. Male...although underneath all of that makeup and cosmetics it's a little hard to tell. We Tanar'ri can BARELY stay on top of Hive-world fashions, let alone comprehend them.
[20:12] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Typical spoiled-little-rich-boy, and magnified by the fact that he's the personification of everything YOU despise about "Spire-Nobles". Hyper-privileged, hyper-rich, and hyper-worthless...at least on the surface.
[20:14] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Back on Necromunda he seems to have stuck his fingers into more than a few shady dealings, mostly with offworld traders and Underhive dealers.
[20:14] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ One of which YOU should remember, Solar. Balthazar van Zeep.
[20:14] <Solarchos> HIM?! He's still alive?!
[20:15] <Hellesponte-AI> Querry: just who is that?
[20:17] <Solarchos> Balthazar van Zeep is one of the biggest narco-traffickers in the Underhive of Hive Primus. His crime empire was huge, so much so that it extended out of Hive Primus and into dozens of the other Hives. When I was running in the Underhive, he was well-known for his cruelty and brutality.
[20:18] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> He hasn't changed. Even worse...he apparently remembers YOU, Solarchos.
[20:18] <Solarchos> ...Why? It's not like the Waste Rangers ever struck directly at his holdings. Taggart was careful about that.
[20:19] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ No, not for that.
[20:20] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ From what I've been able to find out, the person connecting you, van Zeep, and Helmawr together is none other than NERO. I'm sure you remember him.
[20:20] <Solarchos> A spymaster for House Delaque, major infobroker, and rumored to be an operative for the Inquisition? Him?
[20:22] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ It was Nero who contacted us with a warning about Helmawr's expedition. Van Zeep's taken a direct interest as well and they BOTH specifically demanded that a message be sent directly to YOU.
[20:24] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Balthazar van Zeep has figured out that the Federation has developed some unique and powerful medical technology. Including a variation of the Juvenat Treatment that's more readily available than what the Adeptus Mechanicus has. He wants to make use of it for himself.
[20:27] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Nero has stated that they warned us in order to convey their respective desire to gain access to Federation services before anyone else on Necromunda does, and that it be done through THEIR channels. In return, they can feed us even more information as they come across it.
[20:28] <Solarchos> So basically they want exclusive contracts and preferential treatment.
[20:29] <Hellesponte-AI> Risky. A ruthless crime lord and a shady spymaster wouldn't exactly be the most trustworthy of allies.
[20:31] <Solarchos> Yes, but the phrase "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" also comes to mind. Going along with them, at least for now, might be a good way to keep everything that's happening on Necromunda from affecting us.
[20:33] * Morrigan (Q.E.C.) frowns a little. "Shrewd, distasteful, but understandable. van Zeep is someone that even WE are wary of. And most of our operations on Necromunda have to take him into account fairly often. I'll see what I can do to keep him at arm's-length."
[20:35] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Agevar Helmawr also has some dealings with Underhive gangs and offworld trade, as I mentioned. It's possible that some of the ships in his fleet are made up of mercenaries or even pirates. A mere hive-noble, even one from the Imperial House of Necromunda, would NOT have the necessary influence or contacts within the Imperial Navy to get an actual Sector Fleet on his side.
[20:36] <Solarchos> So what would that mean for the fleet we're facing?
[20:37] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ It's likely that the majority of the crews of those ships are conscripted or the equivalent of Planetary Defense Forces. For all we know it might actually be a group of Rogue Traders all being paid by Helmawr himself.
[20:38] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ That man has more money than Jeff Bezos, George Soros, Elon Musk, and Vladimir Putin combined.
[20:40] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ But without the direct patronage of the Imperial Navy, which is currently fully committed to the Indomitus Crusade, he's scraping the bottom of the barrel with whoever he can find.
[20:41] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ In fact...I JUST obtained more information on that ship of his! And...
[20:41] * Morrigan (Q.E.C.) reads over something.
[20:41] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap.
[20:41] <Solarchos> Huh?!
[20:41] <Solarchos> What's wrong now?
[20:41] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ IT'S CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!!!!
[20:43] *** A new hologram appears, showing a slowly rotating image of a gigantic starship. The text displays indicate it's over 5000 meters in length and masses at roughly 25 million tons...which is common for a cruiser of the Imperium.
[20:44] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Notice the banks of macrocannons and double-tier lance-cannon turrets. This thing is built along the lines of a Lunar-class, however, if you notice the bow.
[20:45] * Morrigan (Q.E.C.) calls up another hologram, this time of a ship everyone is already familiar with: the Defender of Cadia which IS a Lunar-class cruiser.
[20:48] *** The Cadia's front has a slanting prow that forms into a point. Imperial cruisers almost all have heavily-reinforced prows designed for maximum armor protection. Helmawr's ship does NOT have such obvious reinforced frontal armor. In fact, the hull seems much more embellished, with smoother contours.
[20:49] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ This is a class of cruiser you've never run into before. An Ambition-class cruiser. They're basically a "civilian" version of a military vessel. It's still a product of the Standard Template Construct, but doesn't have all of the triple-level redundancies of an actual combat vessel.
[20:52] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ It's an example of the kinds of voidships that the hyper-rich can buy for themselves. They're built to their purchaser's specifications, and can take upwards of ten or so years to complete, but they're NOT on the same level as an actual military ship.
[20:53] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ It's got the firepower of a Lunar-class, for sure, and with the kind of money the Helmawrs have its weapons are likely of higher-than-normal quality, but this A[BLEEP]LE apparently went absolutely insane with it and PIMPED HIS ROCKET!!!!
[20:54] <Solarchos> Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?
[20:55] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ The interior of the ship is apparently as decadently and opulently decorated as possible, and the outer hull's been plated with actual GOLD and SILVER in a massive display of wealth.
[20:56] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ We're talking Sun-King levels of ornamentation.
[20:57] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Meaning it's got first-rate firepower, a SECOND-rate crew, and THIRD-rate armor.
[20:57] <Solarchos> And we're in a much better position?
[20:59] <Hellesponte-AI> I am a vessel unlike anything existing within the Imperium. I am a fully-restored and operational light cruiser from the Age of Strife. The only Imperial agency that MIGHT have ships superior to me would be the Grey Knights and the Inquisition.
[21:01] <Hellesponte-AI> The Fenris and Valrigis are both fully-restored and reconditioned Dauntless light cruisers operating at levels not seen since the time of the Great Crusade.
[21:01] <Hellesponte-AI> Current Imperial Navy vessels are pale shadows what they used to be in the 31st Millennium
[21:03] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ And the Rebellious Command has been upgraded to be superior to any normal Dictator-class cruiser.
[21:04] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ The Exeters are lightly armored, but have superior firepower compared to a Sword frigate.
[21:05] <Hellesponte-AI> Which have heavier armor by comparison. It evens out, and the Imperials have more escorts than we do.
[21:06] <Solarchos> Which is why the Exeters will engage at long range with their spinal mounts and keep at a distance as much as possible while the rest of our ships stay in close formation and engage their big ships directly.
[21:07] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Ahhh, the old tactic of "Down the middle and UP YOURS".
[21:08] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ In this case it might work surprisingly well. If we take out Helmawr's flagship, it's likely the entire fleet will fall apart.
[21:09] <Solarchos> If we seriously threaten Helmawr to the point he panics, he might just retreat completely. Or surrender outright.
[21:10] <Solarchos> Hence the reason why I brought in the Rebellious Command for this.
[21:10] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ ........
[21:11] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ You're going to unleash the 4th Regiment on his flagship, aren't you?
[21:12] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ It makes good tactical sense too. They're all veterans and have extensive training in fighting in urban and shipboard environments. And given than they're almost equipped to the level of the Space Marines...ooooooh, this is going to be BRUTAL.
[21:14] <Solarchos> And then there are the hidden assets.
[21:16] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ More Abh ships? Don't get me wrong, two Roth-class cruisers can do some damage, but we really should have a couple squadrons of Roils supporting us.
[21:17] * Hellesponte-AI shows Morrigan some additional data. Apparently, the Federation ships that everyone's been talking about are NOT the only ones located in the Proxima Centauri system.
[21:17] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ .......
[21:18] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ ....Oh, Helmawr is going to LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE this!
[21:22] <Morrigan (Q.E.C.)> ♦ Crap, my signal's giving out. I'll re-establish when I can.
[21:22] *** Morrigan (Q.E.C.) has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:22] <Solarchos> And I want to inspect some of the other things you suggested, Hellesponte.
[21:22] <Hellesponte-AI> I'd be happy to oblige!
[21:22] *** Hellesponte-AI has left #suburbansenshi3
[21:23] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ("Off to see how my beloved wife will surprise me now." ^__^)

[23:03] <Mercurius Shin> WHAT...

[23:04] <A horrifying creature> - WELL WELL WELL -

[23:18] <A horrifying creature> - detached from all protection.....you will be a perfect prey here -
[23:19] <Mercurius Shin> ......
[23:19] <Mercurius Shin> fuuuuuuuck....
[23:19] *** Mercurius Shin has left #suburbansenshi3
[19:13] *** Meanwhile, back in Proxima Centauri
[19:13] *** Hellesponte AI has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:13] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Hellesponte AI *** Happy National Foundation Day!!
[19:14] * Hellesponte AI maintains her vigil on the bridge, constantly updating everything as her sensors continuously probe the void.
[19:18] <Hellesponte AI> The Necromundan ships are moving towards us. I'm picking up auspex signals focusing in our general direction.
[19:19] * Solarchos nods
[19:20] *** The Hellesponte is currently cloaked and maneuvering directly UNDERNEATH the Rebellious Command at a distance of only a couple hundred meters below her keel.
[19:23] *** The Fenris and the [/i]Valrigis[/i] are vectoring alongside the Rebellious Command at close escort range (a.k.a several dozen miles).
[19:26] *** Both Abh cruisers are positioned a short distance behind the other ships, and both Sword frigates and two of the Exeters are positioned ahead of the Rebellious Command, acting as a screen. The other four Exeters, however, are NOT part of the main group. They seem to be gone.
[19:35] * Solarchos looks at the holo-map of the system. There's not much within the star system, at least nothing of great interest beyond a handful of planets. Most of them are too small or too far away from the star to be habitable.
[19:37] *** The Federation's ships are currently located near a small gas giant (Neptune/Uranus sized). There are numerous moons, and a haze-like belt of dust encircles the gas giant's equator: the remnants of a couple of small moons colliding and disintegrating thousands of years ago.
[19:38] <Solarchos> Any indications that they've detected US specifically?
[19:38] <Hellesponte AI> Impossible.
[19:39] <Hellesponte AI> There's not an auspex system in the Imperium NOT belonging to the Inquisition or the highest levels of the Adeptus Mechanicus that are sensitive enough to detect ME while cloaked.
[19:41] <Solarchos> What about the rest of our ships?
[19:41] <Hellesponte AI> They all signal their readiness.
[19:41] <Hellesponte AI> ...
[19:41] * Hellesponte AI closes her eyes for a moment as she concentrates fully on other parts of the ship.
[19:42] <Hellesponte AI> The Abh signal that they're at battle stations. Same with the rest of our ships.
[19:43] <Hellesponte AI> ...
[19:43] * Hellesponte AI opens her eyes wide and reorients the holodisplays, focusing them in on the Imperial ships.
[19:44] <Hellesponte AI> Drive flares detected! The Imperials have engaged thrust. Course...
[19:44] <Hellesponte AI> ...............they're heading directly towards us. Range: 25000 miles.
[19:46] * Solarchos scrutinizes the readouts closely.
[19:46] <Solarchos> Hellesponte...are there any indications of fighters or other small craft being launched?
[19:50] <Hellesponte AI> None so far. But then again we ARE a long distance from them. If any of those other ships are carriers they might wait until we're within striking range.
[19:50] <Solarchos> What about our own fighters?
[19:51] <Hellesponte AI> All Starfury squadrons are on standby.
[19:51] <Solarchos> And the new Interceptors?
[19:57] * Hellesponte AI starts to slowly grin as she calls up new data, conjuring up an image in the air of a sleek craft that looks like a slightly blocky SR-71 Blackbird. It's not exactly aerodynamically streamlined, and its hull mounts turrets on its top, underside, and rear. The wings mount engine pods above and below its wings, and there are vents along the sides of the hull that are likely smaller vector thrusters.
[19:58] <Hellesponte AI> They're all ready and in position. This will be their first time being used. FedCom R&D has been working on these for over a year. We'll soon see if they're worth the effort.
[20:06] *** Suddenly, a new hologram appears of a rough-featured middle-aged man dressed in the slightly-tattered and altered uniform of a Commander of the Imperial Navy.
[20:07] <Rogue Trader Captain Bronston> ♦ Governor-Militant, the Rebellious Command is being directly hailed by Helmawr's vessel. I think they've assumed that WE'RE the flagship.
[20:07] <Solarchos> Just as planned.
[20:12] <Solarchos> Is the comm relay established?
[20:13] <Hellesponte AI> I'm already interfaced with the Rebellious Command's cogitator and vox systems. Stand by...
[20:14] <Hellesponte AI> Hololithic datalinks detected. Helmawr's ship is quite advanced. Connecting now.
[20:17] *** An new image manifests in the air in front of Solarchos, dominating the center of the Hellesponte's bridge. It's of a man dressed in an exceptionally ornate coat and clothing that looks like a fusion of Steampunk Victorian-era and neo-Modern. The man is quite slender with long willowy limbs and that's swept back and UP like it's in defiance of gravity.
[20:19] *** Slender wires wind up and out from underneath the massive collars of his coat, imbedding into his skin near his eyes and temples. His face is heavily colored by garish makeup, and when he smiles his teeth flash brightly...due to the fact that ALL of his teeth have been replaced by custom-shaped diamonds.
[20:21] *** Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:21] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th *** Happy National Foundation Day!!
[20:22] <Solarchos> I am Solarchos Langister, governor-militant of the VanSaar Federation and Baron within the Humankind Empire Abh. Are you the commander of the Necromundan expedition within our territory?
[20:24] * Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th just smirks slightly.
[20:25] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - Ahhhh, so YOU are the one I've heard rumors about. I must say you've turned out to be quite underwhelming. Disappointing, in fact. -
[20:26] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - Such a paltry collection of voidships under your command. And here I'd been led to believe you commanded a massive fleet that rivaled any sub-sector within the Segmentum Solar! -
[20:27] <Solarchos> You've caught me at a bad time. Most of my forces are committed to dealing with a xenos threat. I actually CARE about the welfare of the people within my realm, so when a threat arises I actually commit forces to deal with it directly.
[20:28] <Solarchos> In other words, I have more important things to take care of than impress hive-world nobility.
[20:29] * Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th frowns a little, taken aback by the slight.
[20:31] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - You will need to learn how to do so if you wish to continue to hold ANY authority within this realm. As you are an affiliate within House Van Saar of Necromunda, you are automatically bound by ancient oaths to the Imperial House of Helmawr. -
[20:32] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - As such, I hereby assume absolute control of YOUR realm and ALL of its peoples, resources, assets, and territories. -
[20:33] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - Effective immediately, you are a vassal of House Helmawr. Accept my decree now, and you MIGHT maintain status as a MINOR noble within the Necromundan aristocracy. -
[20:35] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - Resist, and I'll personally destroy your tiny little realm, execute your family, and take you back to Necromunda to be converted into a Chrono-gladiator. Or perhaps as a slave for an Orlock manufactorum? Either way, what you built I now claim. -
[20:36] <Solarchos> ...
[20:37] <Solarchos> I not only reject your "proposal", but declare your whole endeavor ILLEGAL under the direct orders of the Senatoris Imperialis of Sacred Terra.
[20:38] * Solarchos picks up a large scroll and holds it out, letting it unfurl.
[20:38] * Hellesponte AI walks up with a large book and opens it, showing the pages to Helmawr's hologram.
[20:39] <Solarchos> The VanSaar Federation is officially recognized as an INDEPENDENT realm outside the authority of the Imperium of Man, and a state of Non-Aggression exists, declared under the direct authority of the Lord-Commander HIMSELF.
[20:40] <Solarchos> Roboute Guilliman.
[20:40] <Solarchos> PRIMARCH of the Ultramarines and RULER of the Imperium.
[20:40] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> :O
[20:41] <Solarchos> Your authority is null and void, and your voice is meaningless to me.
[20:42] <Solarchos> Under the terms of the Non-Aggression Pact, I am required to give you an opportunity to withdraw. I am giving you that opportunity now.
[20:43] <Solarchos> If you continue to make threats or engage in ANY kind of aggression within the Federation's "Sphere of Influence" and ESPECIALLY the "Sphere of Interest"...I will take direct action to neutralize the threat.
[20:44] * Solarchos makes a gesture to Hellesponte AI.
[20:45] * Hellesponte AI closes her eyes and transmits a tight-beam laser communication towards the gas giant's dust rings.
[20:46] <Solarchos> Also, would you direct your auspex sensors towards the local star. You should find a planet orbiting at a distance of roughly 12 million miles out.
[20:46] <Solarchos> That planet used to be life-bearing.
[20:46] <Solarchos> It's not any more.
[20:47] <Solarchos> Because I destroyed it roughly eight years ago.
[20:47] <Solarchos> EXTERMINATUS.
[20:47] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - ... -
[20:49] <Solarchos> If you genuinely think that I lack the malice or the resolve required to defeat you...
[20:50] * Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th staggers a little as he loses his balance, and the integrity of his signal drops for a few second. Something just happened onboard his ship.
[20:53] *** Helmawr's massive ship shudders as several HUGE explosions ring out against its outer hull. At first, a couple of explosions flared against a barrier being projected out from the ship's hull: the vessel's void shields were intercepting a pair of giant solid-metal harpoons slamming into them at one-third the speed of light.
[20:54] *** The void shields stopped the first...the second...but the third and fourth pierced the then-weakened shields and impacted directly against the ship's armor, striking with kinetic force equivalent to 20 kilotons of TNT each.
[20:55] *** Another shot impacts against the port side of one of the escort frigates, bringing down its void shields with a single hit.
[20:56] <Solarchos> ...then you are going to be in for a very bitter disappointment.
[20:57] *** All of the capital-scale railgun shots originated from the dust ring. THERE'S where the other Exeters are! They were HIDING within the dust rings.
[20:58] <Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th> - YOU?!! HOW??! -
[20:59] <Solarchos> I have more vessels at my disposal than what you've detected so far. In fact, you might say that I've laid a trap for you.
[21:00] <Solarchos> Withdraw now. Or I WILL initiate the self-defense clause of the Pact.
[21:03] * Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th scowls bitterly, his expression turning into one of absolute hatred and disbelief the likes of which no Terran has EVER seen before. Necromundans are a very fierce breed of people, and the people of House Helmawr are used to ALWAYS getting their way. It's the law, after all.
[21:03] *** Agevar Vurvarr Eslosquiandus Helmawr the 24th has left #suburbansenshi3 (Ends transmission.)
[21:05] <Hellesponte AI> More drive flares detected. They're accelerating and changing their trajectories at random intervals. That'll throw off the Exeter's mass-driver accuracy a little.
[21:05] <Hellesponte AI> But they are definitely NOT reversing course. They're coming straight for us.
[21:06] <Solarchos> He wants a fight? GOOD. I'm tired of waiting.
[21:06] <Hellesponte AI> You're being uncharacteristically aggressive today.
[21:07] <Solarchos> Helmawr woke up this morning, he chose DUMBASS.
[21:07] <Solarchos> He threatened my family, so I'm choosing VIOLENCE. Let's see just how massive his ego really is.
[21:08] <Solarchos> Relay to all other ships, Hellesponte. Action stations. All personnel, combat is imminent.
[21:12] * Hellesponte AI grins.
[21:12] <Hellesponte AI> I'm already ahead of you.
[21:14] *** Hellesponte AI has left #suburbansenshi3 (Signal ended at source)
[21:14] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has left #suburbansenshi3 ([To be continued tomorrow!])
[21:47] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Matsumi Kaze's nightmare
[21:47] *** Some dark mysterious force seems to be stalking Matsumi Kaze in her dreams!
[21:47] * Dark Mysterious Force is now known as Eliza McIntash
[21:48] <Eliza McIntash> Hi Matsumi! I bet you were wondering where I was, and if I've succumbed to temptation and gone crazy with sadistic tendencies.
[21:49] <Eliza McIntash> Can't answer that for you, but I can say this---you know how my name starts with "Mc," like I'm Scottish? I've spent all this time thinking about that, and have decided to start playing the bagpipes!
[21:49] * Eliza McIntash pulls out some bagpipes. "Here they are. I still have a lot to learn, though. I'll follow you around as I practice for the next 6 hours!"
[21:51] <Eliza McIntash> ♫
[21:51] <Eliza McIntash> - ♫ -
[21:52] <Eliza McIntash> - ♫ -
[17:39] * Mercurius Shin grimaces but doesn't scream in pain...GLARING at the demons
[17:39] <Mercurius Shin> you think...that's going to make me break
[17:40] * Mercurius Shin WINCES as his wounds re-close..he's had his limbs torn off and re-assembled so many times he's lost count
[17:42] * Mercurius Shin struggles against his bonds again
[17:50] <Mercurius Shin> when I..get out of here.......
[09:58] * Mercurius Shin manages to escape....but since he has no idea how to get out....he's still in hell and is hiding from the various demons
[18:50] <Mercurius Shin> ..what....
[18:50] <Demon Dakcury> ....I can give you everything back..your history...your memories...everything
[18:50] <Demon Dakcury> ..all I need...is her
[18:50] <Demon Dakcury> ..give me her......and i'll give you the world....
[18:51] <Demon Darkcury> ^
[19:25] *** Meanwhile, back in Proxima Centauri
[19:29] *** The sensor displays on the Hellesponte's bridge continue to show the Necromundan battlegroup on approach.
[19:30] * Solarchos watches closely.
[19:32] *** The escorts are fanning out ahead of Helmawr's flagship, some putting some distance before the larger ship while a few others stay behind it, keeping close to the light cruisers.
[19:32] <Solarchos> Hellesponte...what's your assessment of Helmawr's ships based on what we're seeing now?
[19:33] <Hellesponte AI> Analyzing.
[19:33] <Hellesponte AI> >__>
[19:33] <Hellesponte AI> <__<
[19:34] <Hellesponte AI> Hard to confirm without actual visual sightings. However, I can make an educated guess.
[19:37] <Hellesponte AI> Helmawr is fully aware that we have hidden vessels capable of long-range strikes. He's splitting his vessels up.
[19:38] <Hellesponte AI> The group that's falling behind his cruiser are likely the transports. But that raises the question of why the light cruisers aren't accelerating too.
[19:40] <Hellesponte AI> Helmawr's ship is being screened by a total of eight escorts. Judging by their silhouettes I calculate a high probability that they're Sword-class frigates.
[19:42] <Solarchos> One Ambition-class private cruiser versus TWO Dauntlesses and a single Dictator? Assuming that all of his frigates are an even match for all of ours AND the two Abh cruisers...he's certainly super-confident of himself.
[19:45] *** The Imperial ships continue to bear down on the Federation ships. The Federation's ships are still currently floating dead in space, barely moving at all.
[19:48] <Hellesponte AI> They're still on a direct intercept course for us. The Exeters in the dust rings are all signaling that they're ready to fire again.
[19:49] <Solarchos> Hellesponte...use your sensors. Get a firm target lock on some of those frigates and transmit firing solutions to the Exeters assigned to sniper roles.
[19:50] <Solarchos> Signal the Tlanuwa squadrons. Tell them that their targets are those transports lagging behind the main cruiser. Concentrate on them exclusively.
[19:52] <Solarchos> To the command of Fenris...stay close to the Rebellious Command. You're not a full combat vessel any more, so focus on close support.
[19:53] <Solarchos> To the command of Valrigis...break from us and work together with the Abh cruisers. I want you to attack the Imperials from a different angle. Force them to split their attention.
[19:55] <Solarchos> Hellesponte...deactivate your cloak and fire engines. Let's show Helmawr just how badly he's stepped into it all.
[19:55] <Solarchos> Captain Bronston...FIRE AT WILL.
[19:55] <Rogue Trader Captain Bronston> ♦ Understood, Governor-Militant.
[19:56] <Hellesponte AI> About time! >:D
[19:58] *** The exterior cameras switch on and show all of the Federation ships as they ignite their engines and start accelerating forward. The light cruiser Valrigis moves in with the two Abh cruisers and all three ships accelerate to maximum.
[20:00] *** The Rebellious Command starts to turn, bringing her broadside to bear. Forty capital-scale pulse-laser cannons start to charge and orient in their enormous mountings. From the cruisers fighter bays, dozens of Starfury Thunderbolt fighters streak forward and are quickly joined by small groups launched from the other Federation ships.
[20:02] * ~ The void shields on the Rebellious Command suddenly flash and shudder as an enormous amount of energy stabs into them for several seconds.
[20:03] <Hellesponte AI> Impact on the Rebellious Command! Beam-lance cannon strike. Their shields are holding.
[20:04] <Rogue Trader Captain Bronston> ♦ We're already within range!
[20:06] <Solarchos> Hellesponte! Get us in close and engage at close-range!
[20:08] *** The fleets get closer, and soon bright flashes of light are seen coming from the Imperial frigates. They've begun firing pulse-cannons, filling the void with hundreds of glowing projectiles traveling at a fraction of the speed of light.
[20:10] * ~ The Federation ships return fire, laying down a withering barrage of their own at the Imperial ships.
[20:11] <~> The Rebellious Command opens fire with her own broadsides, as well as the additional lance-cannon turrets installed on her dorsal and ventral spines. Wait...she didn't USED to have additional weapons mounted.
[20:13] *** The Rebellious Command has been UPGRADED!! She's no longer a "mere" Dictator-class cruiser. She's been refitted and rebuilt to actual battlecruiser statistics!
[20:18] * ~ The Rebellious Command opens fire, her lance-cannons tracing across the bow of one of the enemy frigates while dozens of pulse-cannon blasts slam solidly into its forward section.
[20:18] *** Its void shields blaze brightly...then cut out!
[20:20] *** Small chunks of its forward armor are burned away, but those are quickly joined by larger parts as its hull armor is boiled away. Then a glowing-red line is traced along the length of the hull as a beam-lance focuses on it and cuts a deep gouge into the ship
[20:23] *** A huge impact causes an even bigger explosion inside the frigate as a mass-driver shot scores a direct hit. The railgun shard hits at one-third the speed of light, punching through the hull armor and causing a gigantic compression wave inside the ship as its kinetic energy detonates with the force of a small atomic explosion.
[20:24] * ~ The Imperial frigate SHATTERS, its midsection blowing apart and splitting the vessel in half.
[20:26] *** Another Imperial frigate is struck by several antimatter torpedoes fired by one of the Abh cruisers. HOKSATAYOX!!!
[20:28] *** The frigate emerges from the explosion, with its entire starboard side scorched black and breached in several locations. A thick haze is bellowing out of the rents in the hull: internal atmosphere. The frigate is severely damaged. Its engines start misfiring and it starts to list to one side.
[20:29] *** One of the Exeters is knocked backwards and up slightly as its void shields are overwhelmed and it takes multiple solid hits from Imperial macrocannons.
[20:34] <Solarchos> Keep close to our escorts and support THEM!
[20:35] * The Hellesponte accelerates alongside the damaged Exeter and returns fire at the Imperials, her plasma cannons now within optimum range for maximum damage.
[20:38] *** The Starfury squadrons close the distance and SWARM over the Imperial frigates, blasting them non-stop with their pulse-cannons, weaving back and forth to evade defensive cannons, and launching anti-ship missiles before trying to get clear.
[20:41] *** An Imperial frigate is engulfed in a huge fireball as several nuclear torpedoes strike it directly. As the explosion fades the frigate emerges, its hull scorched and smoke and flames bellowing out of multiple hull breaches. Its guns fall silent as the ship is disabled.
[20:42] *** Another Imperial frigate is knocked out of commission as the forward quarter of its hull is blown to shreds by missile strikes.
[20:47] * ~ Twenty-four Tlanuwa-class gunships deactivate their stealth systems and dive towards their targets. The Imperial light cruisers and transports open up with their anti-fighter cannons, but the Tlanuwas are fast, agile, and their defenses include Flare shields to reduce the effectiveness of any shots that hit them!
[20:49] *** All of the gunships each unleash a volley of TWENTY anti-ship torpedoes before breaking to escape!
[20:50] *** The majority of the torpedoes strike their targets, detonating with the force of 25 kilotons EACH.
[20:56] *** One of the light cruisers starts to break apart as its hull is breached and its spine broken. The large cargo holds crack open, exposing their contents to space. HUGE plumes of small objects are sucked into the void is mass quantities. Whatever those things are, the ship is carrying tens of thousands of them.
[20:58] <Hellesponte AI> Visual confirmation on the light cruisers. Five out of six of them appear to be heavy troop transports, NOT combat vessels.
[21:01] <Hellesponte AI> The last light cruiser appears to be a Lathe-class monitor-cruiser. Strange...it's NOT firing its weapons at any of our ships. Its void shields are up and its defending itself from fighter attacks, but it's NOT firing any of its weapons at any of our ships.
[21:02] <Solarchos> What about Helmawr's ship?
[21:03] <Hellesponte AI> It's turned its broadsides to the Rebellious Command and is trading shots with her.
[21:05] *** The visuals show the two gigantic voidships firing away at each other, the space between them now a dazzling display of pulse-cannons, macrocannon fire, and beam-lances cutting through the dark. The Rebellious Command's port side is scorched and scarred in multiple locations, but she appears to be in much better shape than Helmawr's vessel now.
[21:08] * ~ The magnificent silver and platinum inlaid hull of Helmawr's ship, along with its dazzling sculptures and bas-reliefs designed to awe and inspire all who lay their eyes upon it, now looks like the immediate aftermath of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Helmawr's vessel, despite having enhanced shields and redundant backups, have been getting knocked down faster than they can regenerate.
[21:09] * ~ All thanks to the Rebellious Command and the Hellesponte concentrating firepower upon it. Helmawr's ship had superior shielding, but its armor was inferior due to all of the "artistic" embellishments.
[21:09] <Solarchos> Hellesponte...initiate Phase Two. Send the message.
[21:12] <Hellesponte AI> Sent!
[21:12] <Solarchos> BRONSTON! Begin Phase Two! Mobilize the 4th Regiment and prepare to board!
[21:13] <Rogue Trader Captain Bronston> ♦ Understood. The first and second companies are already on standby.
[21:13] <Hellesponte AI> Our own boarding contingent is ready.
[21:15] *** A hyperspace breach opens about 20000 miles away, and a huge ship [url=https://wh40k.lexicanum.com/mediawiki/images/b/bb/BattleBargeBGA.jpg]over 6000 meters in length emerges[/i]
[21:15] *** The Ghost Fox battle-barge Kirshwasser has arrived.
[21:18] * The Kirshwasser accelerates towards Helmawr's ship, angling her prow towards the Necromundan cruiser...then unleashes a volley of torpedoes.
[21:19] *** They're NOT anti-ship torpedoes, either. They're boarding torpedoes! SPACE MARINES INBOUND!!
[21:25] *** The rest of the Imperial frigates start to scatter, with two more sustaining crippling damage as they come under fire from the long-range weapons of the Kirshwasser
[21:38] <~> ♦ Pause here for now since it's gotten late on my end. See you all tomorrow for the conclusion!
[19:46] *** The scene restarts. Another of the Exeter destroyers is slowly tumbling over, its entire starboard side ravaged by multiple impact craters and hull breaches, inside which can be seen dull red-orange light from internal fires.
[19:50] *** One of the Abh patrol cruisers has also taken severe damage. Several direct hits have ruptured its engineering section, causing water to erupt into the void and diminishing its fuel stores. Panels blow open, and several heavily reinforced storage pods are jettisoned away from the ship at high speed: the Abh just jettisoned their antimatter cores.
[19:51] * The Fenris maneuvers into position, interposing herself between the stricken Abh cruiser and the plasma cannon broadsides of Helmawr's cruiser, shielding it from any additional fire.
[19:56] *** Starfuries by the hundreds begin to swarm Helmawr's ship, sweeping over its void shields and causing them to flash and glow brightly as they absorb hundreds of thousands of blaster bolts every minute.
[19:58] *** At the same time, the rest of the Federation escort ships converge on the Imperial cruiser and all launch two or three of THESE from their launch bays.
[19:59] *** The Rebellious Command also starts launching assault boats from her launch bays too.
[20:01] *** The Kirshwasser practically ignores the incoming plasma battery and macrocannon fire being spewed at her by the remaining Imperial ships as she bears down on Helmawr's vessel.
[20:03] * ~ The first salvo of boarding torpedoes home in on Helmawr's cruiser and SMASH into the side of it amidships. The torpedoes puncture the hull, then drills built into the nosecones begin to dig deeper into the hull and pull the torpedoes inwards.
[20:14] * The Hellesponte accelerates towards the other group of ships, opening fire with long-range pulse-cannons that rake across the void shields of one of the other troop transports and quickly bring them down
[20:20] *** The Lathe monitor-cruiser returns fire with everything it can bear, blasting away at the Hellesponte with dozens of pulse-cannons, macrocannons, and even beam-lances. Almost all of them miss as the ship's targetters can't get a firm lock due to the Hellesponte's advanced stealth systems
[20:22] * The Hellesponte turns towards the Lathe, locks on, and fires her Macrobeamer. A beam of intense multi-dimensional energy, replicating the state of a protouniverse in its creation, screams towards the monitor-cruiser, punching through its void shields like they're non-existent and striking the vessel at an angle along its upper section.
[20:24] *** The Lathe shudders as the beam instantly flash-vaporizes a three-kilometer long section of its hull, annihilating nearly a quarter of the ship's mass almost instantly!
[20:28] *** The other transports all cease fire and stop firing their main engines. The vox channels start to come alive as the captains of ALL of the transports call for a stand-down and parley.
[20:33] *** The boarding torpedoes finally breach through the armor of Helmawr's ship, penetrating into the interior space. As the torpedoes come to a halt, claymore mines along the hull detonate, filling the air with lethal shrapnel to savage anyone nearby.
[20:34] * ~ Side panels blow open, and hulking figures encased in thick power armor leap out!
[20:34] *** Ghost Fox Astartes start eliminating ANY opposition!!
[20:46] *** Several boarding torpedoes were actually carrying Ghost Fox Sororitas! The girls quickly sprint deeper into the ship, using their enhanced speed and agility to penetrate further into the richly appointed vessel to begin attacking specific targets, like command centers and rallying points. Their power armor might be styled differently just because they're not huge, but they're just as well-protected and they move much faster.
[20:50] * The other Federation ships get in closer and start blasting away with their weapons, knocking down Helmawr's shields while the Starfuries continue to attack, targetting the weapon emplacements and turrets on the hell. Point-defense cannons are blazing away non-stop, and the void around the Imperial cruiser is lighting up with small explosions every second.
[20:52] * ~ Each explosion is a small fighter craft. And each fighter is a Starfury Thunderbolt. But their efforts aren't in vain as the first of the Shark assault boats finally get in close and latch onto the hull. Mag-clamps engage and melta-cutters fire.
[20:57] *** Additional hull breaches are formed, and whole companies of Imperial Guard start to swarm onboard! But it's not ONLY the Guardsmen of the 4th Regiment surging onboard...!
[20:57] *** Team Anti-Rain has joined #suburbansenshi3

[20:58] * HK-416 screams like a deranged Valkyrie as she charges into battle, followed closely by UMP-45, UMP-9, G11, and WA-2000!!
[20:59] * Sopmod-2 giggles like crazy as she, M4A1, ST AR-15, and RO-635 join the fray.
[21:00] * AK-12 AN-94, AK-15, and RPK-16 eagerly advance!
[21:07] *** Finally, from one of the assault shuttles emerges a SINGLE girl, dressed in a uniform of black, grey, and red, and wearing some kind of combat rigging that looks like a monstrous creature of claws and guns. WAIT...!!!! NO!!!!
[21:08] *** Roon has joined #suburbansenshi3
[21:08] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Roon
[21:21] * Roon starts to laugh, slowly at first, then intensifying until she's practically SCREAMING in delight. Yup, she's going into Yandere Trance mode, crying a little as she sees the hundreds of Armsmen and heavily-armed Palantine soldiers preparing to defend the ship from the invasion.
[21:22] <Roon> Vater! Ich liebe dich so sehr für dieses Geschenk!
[21:25] <Roon> Dieser Ort muss wirklich sein Jigoku!! Der Ort, an dem Sie über unserer Familie der Toten wohnen!
[21:26] <Roon> Ich werde dich stolz auf mich machen!
[21:29] * Roon CHARGES!!!
[21:29] *** And pause here for now since I'm starting to fall asleep. We'll pick this up again tomorrow! Good night, everyone!
[22:33] *** Ami's lab, Mizunomics Building
[22:52] *** Inside one of the personal laboratories of the head of Mizunomics, a large screen shows a single dot flashing, along with data streaming across the bottom. In another room, an infant can be heard crying. The data is moving so fast that a "normal" person might not be able to read it.
[22:54] <Mizunomics01> Hmm...
[22:55] * Mizunomics01 's eyes scan the screen, tracking the small dot that represents the Signal from an ENHANCED Airtag™
[22:55] <Mizunomics01> It's not even in this dimension...
[22:56] *** the data finally stops, pin pointing a single "impossible" location
[22:56] * Mizunomics01 summons her Mercury Tiara and a beam shoots from it into the computer, and she DIRECTLY interfacrs
[22:57] * Mizunomics01 has seen this location before in some archival data from the 31st century...
[22:58] * Mizunomics01 thinks back
[22:58] <Mizunomics01> Ahh yes... the UAC csoporation...
[22:59] *** the baby keeps cryng in the far room, though someone is of course trying to calm it
[22:59] * The Data notes the life force of the individual is fluxuating wildly
[23:00] * Mizunomics01 snaps her fingers and an R2-D2 unit in a nurse's outfit goes to the deal with the child
[23:00] <Mizunomics01> Sorry, baby...
[23:00] * Mizunomics01 goes to a storage locker and opens it, revealing some green Power Armor and a helmet
[23:00] * Mizunomics01 puts it on
[23:00] <Mizunomics01> Mommy has to invade HELL.
[23:01] * Mizunomics01 remembers the UAC Data about the portal to Hell they sound on mars
[23:02] * Mizunomics01 uses SAILOR TELEPORT to get herself to Mars
[23:02] * Mizunomics01 then takes a selfie from Mars and sends it to Elon Musk with a middle finger Emoji
[23:03] * Mizunomics01 sees the site where the portal will be opened at some point
[23:03] * Mizunomics01 will have to blast it open
[23:03] * Mizunomics01 decides to test her new power

[23:04] <Mizunomics01> /ppve NITROGLYCERIN BUBBLES... BOOM!
[23:04] <Mizunomics01> NITROGLYCERIN BUBBLES... BOOM!
[23:05] * Mizunomics01 BLOWS open a hole to the portal to hell and sees the unholy glow of eldritch ruins
[23:05] * Mizunomics01 JUMPS in the portal!
[23:08] *** the portal leads immediatly to a firey and glowing landscape....and right in the middle of a massive army of demonic creatures...who all stare at the armored intruder...
[23:09] * Demons all give a wicked..hungry grin
[23:10] * Mizunomics01 casually unslings somethuing from her back
[23:11] * Mizunomics01 keys in activation code BFG IDKFA
[23:12] *** several minutes later....
[23:13] *** in another chamber, Mercurius is semi absorbed into a large fleshy pillar....as the demonic "Darkcury" slowly crawls towrards him, tracing a finger along his cheek....
[23:13] <Darkcury> it is..only...logical hehehe
[23:13] * Mercurius Shin tries to arch his head away from Darkcury..gritting his teeth...
[23:14] * Mizunomics01 BLOWS open a hole in the wall
[23:14] * Darkcury turns her head..not her body
[23:14] <Darkcury> .....
[23:14] * Mizunomics01 has deliberately blown a hole next to the door
[23:14] <Darkcury> there was..a door, you know
[23:14] <Mizunomics01> ...f[BLEEP]k your door
[23:14] * Darkcury turns her body
[23:15] <Darkcury> ..such language..unbecoming of wide intellect
[23:15] <Darkcury> ...why do you come
[23:15] <Mizunomics01> ....because he pleasures me
[23:15] <Mizunomics01> That was an odd question to ask.
[23:15] * Mercurius Shin tries to say something but a fleshy tenticle wraps itself around his mouth
[23:15] <Mizunomics01> ...
[23:15] <Mizunomics01> unhand my man
[23:16] <Darkcury> let me have him...he makes a wonderious plaything...I can give you any number of more sutible boytoys
[23:16] <Mizunomics01> ...do you enjoy having atomic cohesion?
[23:16] * Darkcury tilts her head "..pardon?"
[23:17] * Mizunomics01 levels her BFG at her
[23:17] <Mizunomics01> Unahnd him. You have five seconds to comply.
[23:18] * Darkcury flicks her wrist....creating a large demonic looking weapon in her arm "..and if I do not"

[23:18] <Mizunomics01> 2..
[23:18] * Mizunomics01 FIRES A MASSIVE BLAST AT DARKURY
[23:19] <Mizunomics01> ..I was so agitated I forgot how to count properly
[23:20] * Darkcury tries to fire back but gets a chunk of her face blow off
[23:20] <Darkcury> ....losing..control of emotions..unlike you....
[23:20] <Darkcury> what makes him so..worth this.....
[23:20] * Darkcury tries to reshape her face back in postion....
[23:21] <Mizunomics01> You will spend the next thousand years pondering that
[23:21] * Mizunomics01 snaps her fingers and several fiant gundams SMASH into the room
[23:22] * They all level their buster rifles at Darkury
[23:22] * Mizunomics01 then considers Darkury closely
[23:23] * Mizunomics01 then douses her with water and throws dirt upon her
[23:23] * Darkcury looks at Ami with a sort of gleeful contempt
[23:23] <Darkcury> ....
[23:23] <Mizunomics01> Haruka-san has taught me this is the only way to solve this argment between women.
[23:23] * Mizunomics01 proceeds to have a mudfight with her
[23:24] <Mizunomics01> ANTICIPATE THESE TACTICS
[23:25] * Darkcury tries to mud fight back.....then tries to grab at Ami's head (and hair if it's visible)
[23:26] <Mercurius Shin> ......
[23:27] * Mizunomics01 's hair is of course f[BLEEP]king impossible to describe prooperly so it's most likely non euclidean, good luck with that
[23:27] * Mizunomics01 is irrationally screaming random euqations and slapping Garkury with ehr power armor
[23:28] * Mercurius Shin is weirdly turned on by this....
[23:28] * Darkcury is spitting at Ami and trying to use every dirty trick she knows
[23:28] * Mizunomics01 just gets out the CHAINSAW
[23:29] <Darkcury> !
[23:29] <Mizunomics01> GIVE ME MY HUSBAND BACK!!!
[23:29] <Mizunomics01> OR SPEND ETERNITY IN A HUNDRED PIECES!
[23:29] <Mizunomics01> I WILL MICROWAVE YOU
[23:30] <Mizunomics01> YOU WILL BECOME A MEAL FOR STARVING MESOPOTAMIAN CHILDREN
[23:30] <Mercurius Shin> [wait..husband?]
[23:30] * Mizunomics01 is clearly a little insane RN
[23:30] <Mercurius Shin> (wait husband?)
[23:30] <Darkcury> .......
[23:31] * Darkcury just...slowly...backs away...and gives a hand gesture...causing Mercurius to drop on his face from the pillar
[23:31] <Mizunomics01> WISE CHOICE
[23:31] <Mizunomics01> YOU HAVE CHOSEN WELL
[23:31] * Mizunomics01 hefts Mercurius over her shoulder
[23:32] <Mizunomics01> - No one steals my man -
[23:32] <Mercurius Shin> o_o
[23:32] <Darkcury> ..I will have my revenge, Ami Mizuno
[23:32] * Mizunomics01 turns and gives her a LOOK
[23:32] * Mizunomics01 revs the chainsaw
[23:33] <Mizunomics01> - Are you still here -
[23:33] * Mizunomics01 has the GO GO GO GO aura of a JoJo Character now
[23:34] <Darkcury> no no no
[23:34] * Darkcury just..slowly backs the hell out of there
[23:34] <Mizunomics01> Hmph.
[23:35] * Mizunomics01 assesses Mercurius' physical condition
[23:36] * Mercurius Shin has been demonically tortured..he has a hole where he was shot in the forehead..probably still has a bullet lodged in his brain..otherwise he's alright?
[23:38] * Mizunomics01 feeds him a Senzu bean
[23:40] * Mercurius Shin eats it...and winces as the bullet pops out of his head >.<
[23:40] <Mercurius Shin> ...part of me is..a little shocked...that you actually came
[23:41] <Mizunomics01> ...
[23:41] <Mizunomics01> Why wouldn't I?
[23:42] * Mizunomics01 helps him up
[23:42] <Mizunomics01> You are the man who will be my husband. I love you. :P
[23:43] * Mercurius Shin blushes like an idiot
[23:44] * Mizunomics01 wrikles her nose and regards Mercurius' head carefully
[23:44] <Mizunomics01> I wonder if you have brain damage
[23:45] <Mizunomics01> How could you doubt I would come for you
[23:45] <Mercurius Shin> wait what???
[23:45] <Mizunomics01> We'll run you through the MRI at home
[23:45] <Mercurius Shin> .....
[23:45] <Mercurius Shin> well..alright..I suppose
[23:45] * Mizunomics01 slings him back over her shoulder
[23:45] * Mercurius Shin frowns for a moment...remembering what he had been told these past few days...

[20:07] *** Onboard Helmawr's ship, the defenders are swarming by the thousands to oppose the Imperial Guard, the T-Dolls, and the Ghost Foxes. Most of the ship's Armsmen are comprised of what appear to be trained fighters equipped with reinforced body-suits and multi-layered ballistic armor designed to partially resist boltguns.
[20:11] *** In other areas, they're supported by small groups of gigantic orge-like beings - Ogryns! The Orgyn's are all armed with plate armor that looks like it came from vehicle plating and equipped with shields and massive clubs.
[20:13] * ~ The Federation boarders engage the Imperials fiercely, laying down massive barrages of gauss rifle and boltgun fire while Assault Marines slam into the Ogryns with chainswords and pulse-carbines in brutal, bloody melee combat.
[20:19] * Roon strides forward towards the Imperials, screaming with laughter as las-rounds and shotgun blasts explode against her refractor shields. She slams into the Ogryns facing her and starts slashing and tearing away at their shields with her Rigging's claws.
[20:29] *** Several groups of Sororitas have managed to infiltrate deeper within the ship. Finding suitable areas large enough for their objectives, they secure the holds and galleries, eliminate any opposition, and set up very specialized tech devices - TELEPORT BEACONS!!
[20:32] * ~ Teleportariums that have been primed and ready for a while now finally detect the homing beacons needed, and engage! Space and time are momentarily ripped open and reassembled, and suddenly standing around the teleport beacons appear...

[20:33] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Alldrogis Valkyvida
[20:35] * Alldrogis Valkyvida draws a pistol and opens fire at the Orgyns rushing towards his position, the bullets of his gun punched effortlessly through their shields, armor, and through the Orgyns THEMSELVES.
[20:37] *** Agent, Ouroboros, Executioner, Architect, Judge, Destroyer, Gager, Hunter, Beak, Alchemist, and Scarecrow all HURL themselves into battle with wild abandon, eager to show off for the first time in a long time!
[20:38] * Solarchos charges into the melee as well, hacking left and right and blasting his way through the mass of bodies as he heads directly towards the command decks.
[20:39] *** The ship itself is ridiculously ornate and lavish in some areas, looking more like the Palace of Versailles in a lot of places.
[20:41] *** In one part a large group of boarders blast their way into a huge dining hall filled with expensive-looking decorations and tables piled high with food of unusually high quality
[20:42] * ~ There's fruits and vegetables from a dozen different worlds, meats of all kinds, and lots of lots of fresh water and wine!
[20:43] * ~ The Imperial Guardsmen are shoved aside and a Space Marine is damn near knocked DOWN as one T-Doll in particular bodily LEAPS onto one of the tables!!!!!!!

[20:46] *** A flood of Kits quickly join her, leaping onto the tables to start devouring ALL of the exquisite food...and leaping onto the fleeing Necromundan courtiers and bringing them all down!!
[20:53] * The Dining Hall becomes a frenzy of feasting as SPAS-12 and her fluffy friends devour EVERYTHING!! One woman, who's dressed in the finest of auto-adjusting dresses (imported directly from Sacred Terra), wails in dismay as all of the food she'd been eating is snatched away from her by a wild SPAS-12 and several Kits!!!!
[20:57] *** More teleportarium beams deposit yet more attackers onto Helmawr's vessel. HUNDREDS of Sangvis Ferri Dolls start to march forward into battle. At the same time, both the Rebellious Command and the Kirshwasser vector in alongside the Necromundan cruiser, preparing to dock and deploy yet more boarders.
[20:58] *** The engines sputter and die as the Imperial Guard and Ghost Foxes take control of key parts of the Enginarium. The void shields start to be deactivated as well
[20:59] *** Finally, one of the multiple blast doors preventing direct access to the bridge are shredded to pieces by a single blow from Alldrogis' Singularity Blade.
[20:59] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> That's one.
[21:00] * Alldrogis Valkyvida and Solarchos step through the hole and approach the next set of doors.
[21:02] * Alldrogis Valkyvida draws back the enormous blade of his weapon, and swings at the next set of foot-thick adamantium doors. With an almighty CRACK, the neutronium blade strikes the doors and the temporal field sheathing the blade momentarily cuts out. Millions of tons of mass phases into this universe for a microsecond and are applied directly to the doors.
[21:02] *** The doors are immediately torn out of their moorings and are shredded into metallic confetti.
[21:03] <Alldrogis Valkyvida> That's two.
[21:04] * Roon follows closely, eager to be by the side of the Vater.
[21:04] *** With a deafening crash, the next set of doors are vaporized, and the interior of the cruiser's main bridge is exposed!
[21:06] * Solarchos (Orrus Suit) strides onto the massive, multi-tiered command room of the ship, flanked by Roon, Alldrogis, and dozens of Ghost Fox Astartes and Sororitas.
[21:06] *** The bridge crew is currently stunned and paralyzed with shock, still not comprehending that ALL of their defenses were breached almost effortlessly!
[21:07] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - I am Solarchos Langister, Governor-Militant of the Van Saar Federation. And I hereby declare your vessel to be CONQUERED. -
[21:08] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> - SURRENDER. You have no hope now except for our mercy. -
[21:08] * Roon giggles almost lewdly, her face, clothes, and Rig practically COATED with blood and gore.
[21:10] *** The Necromundans start to thrown down their guns and step away from them.
[21:12] <Solarchos (Orrus Suit)> ALL FORCES, spread out and take everyone here into custody. BRING ME HELMAWR!!

[14:40] <Delilah Inochi> [Community Center] yasu, remind me to apology to the gardeners
[14:40] <Yasuko Mie> [Community Center] We're going to Obasan's, she--aww.
[14:40] * Tansy Inochi-Mie [Community Center] tries to put a flower in yasuko's hair!
[14:40] * Yasuko Mie [Community Center] takes the flowers happily.

[17:53] * The yearly online hunt for the player known as "Y.Q.S." is still ongoing, with the reward of 100,000 yen up for grabs issued by the player herself.
[17:54] * Mira Shadowmoon has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[17:54] * Mira Shadowmoon [Community Center] wanders in and heads directly to books
[17:55] <Mira Shadowmoon> [Community Center] I wish they would just bring in some better books here
[17:56] * Beryl Shadowmoon has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[17:57] <Mira Shadowmoon> [Community Center] I've read this one five times already
[17:57] <Beryl Shadowmoon> [Community Center] why not try it in scroll form?
[17:58] <Mira Shadowmoon> [Community Center] no way!
[17:58] * Mira Shadowmoon [Community Center] hugs the books protectivly!
[17:59] <Mira Shadowmoon> [Community Center] these are so much better!
[18:03] <Beryl Shadowmoon> [Community Center] you clearly love the books, that's why you read them a lot :)
[18:05] * Mira Shadowmoon [Community Center] BONKS Beryl on the head
[18:06] <Mira Shadowmoon> [Community Center] >_> well yeah
[18:09] * Mira Shadowmoon [Community Center] hugs the book
[18:12] * Misaki Suminaka [Community Center] walks over and changes the TV channel
[18:14] <Newscaster> Only six hours left until "Y.Q.S." reveals her location to the public and no one gets to claim that hundred thousand yen.
[18:17] <Akane O'Cain> oh yeah it's that weird...card..thingie
[18:17] <Akane O'Cain> don't some of the kids at our school play that?
[18:18] <Misaki Suminaka> [Community Center] it's a fraud
[18:18] * Akane O`Cain has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[18:21] <Akane O`Cain> [Community Center] aww don't say that!
[18:22] <Akane O`Cain> [Community Center] looks kinda cool!
[18:22] <Misaki Suminaka> [Community Center] >_>
[18:25] <Beryl Shadowmoon> [Community Center] She had to shorten that name ever since a certain someone laid claim to all variations of the name "Queen Serenity"
[18:26] <Beryl Shadowmoon> [Community Center] like "Neo", "Theo" "leo" I forget all the others.
[18:30] <Beryl Shadowmoon> [Community Center] I suppose having a limit on the number of letters in the name might have also contributed.
[18:31] <Mira Shadowmoon> [Community Center] who are you talking to, Beryl?
[18:35] <Beryl Shadowmoon> [Community Center] that crowd that just walked in?
[18:40] <Mira Shadowmoon> [Community Center] what crowd?
[18:40] <Beryl Shadowmoon> [Community Center] and come on, she even called Pinako a fraud!

[19:31] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] :D
[19:32] * Young Natalia [Community Center] sets up a portable gas grill and gets to work on preparing some food. What kind of food? MORE FISH, OF COURSE!
[19:33] * Forest Kits scamper up :D :3 :D :3 :D :3
[19:34] *** Himeko_Kaze has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:34] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Himeko_Kaze *** Happy World Catfish Celebration! Eat Catfish today for good luck!
[19:34] * Himeko_Kaze [Tokyo] walks in with the girls!
[19:34] * Himeko_Kaze has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[19:36] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Now, let's get started with the ingredients.
[19:37] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Hello, Friends! Are you here for some jerked fish and chicken? :D
[19:38] * Young Natalia [Community Center] brings out a plate with some small peppers, a few onions, some ginger, a small jar of allspice, and and fresh thyme.
[19:38] * Mari Kino has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[19:39] * Young Natalia [Community Center] sets up a blender.
[19:39] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Okay, now for the ingredients, pay attention!
[19:40] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] YOu want to put the peppers, cut onion, sliced ginger, and allspice into the blender.
[19:40] <Mari Kino> [Community Center] OW!!!!!
[19:40] * Mari Kino [Community Center] hits her head on the door frame again ><
[19:41] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] As for the thyme sprigs, you want to put the dried stalks onto a plate and use a knife to scrape the leaves off. Just let the knife separate them from the stalks. Then collect and add to the blender.
[19:41] <Emi Mizuno> gah Mari you have to watch out!
[19:41] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Finally, you'll need to add a small amount of dark soy sauce, but Daddy and G36 always use a mix of soy and teriyaki sause.
[19:42] <Himeko Kaze> oh hey Akane
[19:42] <Akane O'Cain> hey, Hime!
[19:42] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Next, add in an equal amount of thyme vinegar.
[19:42] * Akane O'Cain notices Misaki has passed out >_>
[19:43] * Akane O'Cain has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[19:43] * Akane O'Cain [Community Center] tries to prop up Misaki
[19:43] * Young Natalia [Community Center] pours the ingredients all in together, making sure that the Forest Kits can still see everything.
[19:44] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Then we just blitz that together. The idea of the soy sauce and the vinegar is not only that it sort of moistens all your other ingredients, but it tenderizes the meat!
[19:44] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] That's the most important thing.
[19:45] <Melody Summer Timberlake-Aino> [Tokyo] HEEEEEYYYYY!
[19:45] * Melody Summer Timberlake-Aino has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[19:45] * Melody Summer Timberlake-Aino [Community Center] waves!
[19:45] <Forest Kits> YAAAAAAAAY :D
[19:45] <Risa Hino> [Tokyo] hey
[19:45] * Young Natalia [Community Center] has the blender on a slow speed, dicing up the ingredients and turning it into a chunky salsa-like mixture.
[19:45] * Risa Hino has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[19:46] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] NOw...
[19:46] * Young Natalia [Community Center] takes out a tray containing several large fillets of fish and chicken.
[19:46] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] We just take this and just pour it on top of our meat!
[19:47] * Young Natalia [Community Center] pours it all over the meat.
[19:47] * Hiroshi Kaze has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[19:47] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Then, you pick up your palette knife and then work that into your meat. Give your meat a good ol' rub!
[19:48] * Young Natalia [Community Center] spreads that sauce all over the meat.
[19:48] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] That's it. Nice and hot and spicy.
[19:48] * Hiroshi Kaze [Community Center] walks out of another room in the community center with some of his friends
[19:48] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Yeah-heah boy!!
[19:49] <Himeko Kaze> bro, what are you doing here?????
[19:49] <Himeko_Kaze> [Community Center] ^
[19:50] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] That's it, then turn the meat over. Flip it over and get that jerk marinade in all around. Work that marinade right down to the bone.
[19:51] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Remember, you want to do this for about 24 hours. Marinate it maybe even 48 hours. But no longer than that, otherwise it starts to break down the meat and you lose all that kind of juiciness and tenderness that you get with your meat.
[19:52] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Once you've marinaded your meat for long enough, you pop them on top of your grill.
[19:53] * Young Natalia [Community Center] already has some pre-marinated meat fillets ready and pops them on the grill!
[19:54] <Hiroshi Kaze> [Community Center] ....hanging out with my friends....why?
[19:54] * Mari Kino [Community Center] IMMEIDATLY blushes, seeing Hiroshi
[19:56] * Young Natalia [Community Center] starts making the interior of the Community Center smell of freshly-grilling meat.
[19:56] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] :D
[19:56] <Hiroshi Kaze> [Community Center] do I have to report everything I'm doing to you or something?
[19:57] <Himeko Kaze> oh come on, stop being so stuck up!
[19:57] * Himeko Kaze has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[20:00] <Forest Kit> Rondo next! :D
[20:01] * Yui Meioh wanders over, looking curiously at the cooking fish

[20:05] <Daughter of Jedite> BUT...BUT..YOU HAVE TO HAVE THEM READY
[20:05] * Daughter of Jedite has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[20:05] <Daughter of Jedite> [Community Center] but I have my dad's Black Card!
[20:06] <Barry> Ahem
[20:06] <Daughter of Jedite> [Community Center] *grumbles!*
[20:06] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Yes! More Rondo!
[20:07] * Young Natalia [Community Center] is grilling up Rondo fillets as well!
[20:08] * Young Natalia [Community Center] finishes grilling the fish fillets, takes them off with some tongs, and quickly and deftly flips them UP into the air and INTO the plates set directly in front of the Forest Kits.
[20:08] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] How's that? ^___^
[20:08] <Forest Kits> Very Goooooood :D
[20:10] *** The rondo fillets look fully cooked and very tender. They smell nice and spicy too!
[20:11] * Forest Kits all start eating
[20:11] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] >_>
[20:11] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] <_<
[20:11] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] ^_^
[20:11] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] V_V
[20:11] * Pinako T. [Community Center] sits at a table and lays out a 2-player playmat.
[20:18] * Aurai [Community Center] hops onto Himeko's shoulder
[20:23] * Juan Gregory [Community Center] has moved to near one of the relaxation corners to sip some tea!
[20:23] <Juan Gregory> [Community Center] ^_^
[20:27] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Hi Pinako!!
[20:27] <Young Natalia> [Community Center] Ready for some RONDO??!??! :D
[20:33] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] Shhhhhhh！
[20:33] * Pinako T. [Community Center] looks at the door... the onlookers are here, wanting that 100,000 yen prize
[20:36] *** Margaret GC has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:36] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Margaret GC *** Happy World Catfish Celebration! Eat Catfish today for good luck!
[20:37] * Juan Gregory [Community Center] pulls out his slim cell phone like device and checks for any new flowers coming out!
[20:37] * Margaret GC comes in, looking at her mobile
[20:38] * Juan Gregory [Community Center] looks up and waves to Margaret!
[20:39] <Margaret GC> Hey Juan.
[20:39] <Margaret GC> What's with all the people?
[20:40] <Juan Gregory> [Community Center] I guess it's busy tonight at the center
[20:40] <Juan Gregory> [Community Center] I'm not sure why
[20:41] <Juan Gregory> [Community Center] oh um
[20:41] * Juan Gregory [Community Center] digs around...and shows Margaret a potted plant!
[20:42] <Margaret GC> Found something new?
[20:42] <Juan Gregory> [Community Center] um no I....
[20:42] <Juan Gregory> [Community Center] ...I bred this
[20:43] * Margaret GC is in wideleg jeans with a cropped sweatshirt which seems to have quite a few stains on it, and a very messy bun
[20:43] <Margaret GC> Oh yeah? Better than what I've been working on, then.

[21:04] <Lina Shin> [Community Center] gah come on..i have another show soon!
[21:04] <Tien> don't rush me!
[21:04] * Tien has moved to: [ Community Center ]
[21:04] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] no one pays attention to the other one though, so everyone over there thinks they've won 100,000 yen
[21:04] <Tien> [Community Center] I have to be careful with these speakers!
[21:06] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] they have to battle me in K&G and win, to earn the prize
[21:08] <Tien> [Community Center] if you want the music to come out right, it needs to be connected right
[21:09] <Margaret GC> Well, I'll figure it out tomorrow, I'm off experimenting for the rest of the night after cleaning the stupid lab again ><
[21:09] * The crowd bursts in
[21:09] <The crowd> that hundered thousand is mine! no mine! it's time!
[21:10] * Margaret GC just watches the rush...
[21:11] <The crowd> They said whoever found the user "Y.Q.S" would win the hundred thousand
[21:12] <The crowd> I remember when her screen name was longer, the "Youma Queen Serenity" years were her best battle years.
[21:12] <Pinako T.> [Community Center] They're crazy.
[21:14] * Yui, Himeko, Mari, Risa and Melody are all eating and chatting, meanwhile
[21:22] <Hiroshi Shin> why can't i use get her to notice me...what am i doing wrong!?
[21:23] <Friend> look.....Melody wouldn't notice anything unless it had a spotlight on it
[21:25] <Juan Gregory> [Community Center] ...I don't know why it's so bu-SY!
[21:25] * Juan Gregory [Community Center] gets run over!!!
[21:26] <Margaret GC> Uhoh...
[21:26] * Margaret GC finds her wand and pulls him out of the crowd

[17:52] * Cure Monarch stares at the glowing orb in front of her..seeing visions of herself and the other earth mothers as pre-teens..befriending each other...growing close....and then a flash forward of them all being friends....
[17:52] <Genii> it can be yours...accept it..and it will be the new past...a chance to bind you all with friendship..the one thing you wish could succeed...
[17:52] <Genii> ...take it....
[17:53] <Genii> ..accept it
[17:54] * Cure Monarch thinks.....on her failures to befriend them....on her failures to bring them together....
[17:54] <Cure Dragon> Monarch!
[17:56] * Cure Monarch reaches towards it...then SMASHES IT causing the orb explodes
[17:56] <Genii> NOOOOOOOOOOOO
[17:57] <Genii> YOU STUPID FOOL
[17:57] * Genii growls...turning negative, her eyes glowing red and growing giant

[19:09] * ~ The projector starts to power up!
[19:11] *** The CheesyKits logo appears, but then the screen is filled with static, and then the cross-like symbol of Eisenblut appears! IRONBLOOD HAS TAKEN OVER THE BROADCAST!!!!
[19:13] * ~ The Scene switches to the inside of what looks like some kind of chapel. Wait...isn't that the SAME chapel that the Arctic Kits saw the inside of when they were captured and taken to Ironblood's ocean base on Planet 4546-B?!
[19:16] * ~ You see all of the decorative, stylized artwork that the Ironblood girls created themselves, depicting their weird religion, and standing on top of the dais is none other than...Z23 looking feisty!
[19:16] <Z23> >:f
[19:16] <Z23> Was zum Teufel denkst du, was du tust?!?!
[19:18] <Z23> Dragging your butts through the day? Selling your bodies and souls in the fight against the Sirens while those damned T-Dolls mock and ridicule you?
[19:19] *** The cutscene shows U-47 in one of the docking bays, trying to work on her Dive-drone while UMP-45, UMP-9, and HK416 come up behind her, looking unbearably smug.
[19:21] <Z23> Acting stupid so they'll think you're one of THEM and not undermine your self-confidence?
[19:22] *** The cutscene shows U-47 trying to stay calm while HK416 lectures her about something while UMP-45 and UMP-9 fiddle with her Dive-drone.
[19:22] <U-47> >___<;;;
[19:23] <Z23> Tired of getting all of the hard sorties, but none of the praise and adulation you feel you deserve?
[19:23] *** The cutscene shows Javelin looking scorched, Ayanami with bandages, and Laffey drinking HARD.
[19:24] <Z23> There IS a simple answer, dear Sea-Dolls! :D
[19:25] <Z23> A glowing beacon of praise and adulation amidst the turmoil and darkness! It's...!!!
[19:26] *** The cutscene shows a nuclear explosion in the distance, and emerging from the blast is a lone figure dressed in what looks like Astartes power armor!
[19:27] <Z23> It's...THE VATER HIMSELF!!!!! And his entire family of Holy Fluffiness!!!
[19:27] <Z23> AND THE GREAT CHURCH OF THE ONRYO!!!!!!
[19:28] *** The camera pulls back, showing that EVERYONE in Ironblood is in the chapel, all grinning and howling in delight!!!
[19:28] *** Oh god, Roon is looking ESPECIALLY crazed in the eyes tonight!
[19:29] <~The girls of Eisenblut> ♦ Lobe den Vater!
[19:30] * ~The girls of Eisenblut thrust their arms out and make their hands into Fox-heads!
[19:32] *** They're ALL there too: Heinrich, Eugen, Elbe, Deutchland, Scharnhorst, Peter Strasser, Agir, Friedrich... Even Admiral Hipper looks uncharacteristically happy.
[19:33] <Z23> The Onryo, our great and magnificent Vater, brings a new destiny for we Sea-Dolls, for he does NOT come to forgive our sins!
[19:33] <Z23> He comes to JUSTIFY our sins!!
[19:34] *** The cutscene shows the girls of Eisenblut in battle against the Sirens, blasting the HELL out of Siren ships with utter ferocity and pure savagery. Then it switches back to the main Azur Lane base and shows young Commander Antilzha praising them all.
[19:38] *** The Ironblood girls all blush and grin. Even BISMARCK can't keep from smiling as AnTil gives U556 some headpats.
[19:40] <Z23> To unmask the Conspiracy to rob us Kansen of the love and affection we deserve and get us a RAISE in the PRAISE that's our rightful due!
[19:41] *** The girls of Eisenblut salute the effigies of the Onryo and his family once again. Waaaaaaaaaait...is that Taihou, Atago....AND CADIA among them now?!
[19:42] <> PRAISE THE FATHER!!!!!!
[19:42] <Cadia AI> ^
[19:42] <Taihou> :D
[19:42] <Atago> ^_______^
[19:44] <Z23> It's US versus THEM!!
[19:44] *** The cutscene switches to Squad 404, the AR Team, AND Task Force Defy looking back smugly.
[19:45] <Z23> Are you gonna FRY in Hell-on-the-Seas alongside those arrogant T-Dolls?!
[19:47] *** The cutscene shows Roon, Graf Zeppelin, and Agir opening fire on a G&K outpost, then switches to the interior as Springfield suddenly looks up from pouring some coffee for Helianthius, Persica, AND Renpha Astalion.
[19:48] *** Springfield, Helianthius, Persica, and Renpha are then all BLASTED by huge amounts of liquified seakelp and pureed Peeperfish that pretty much PAINTS the whole inside of Springfield's cafe.
[19:50] * Helianthus is UNAMUSED
[19:51] <Persica> ...Yuck
[19:51] <Renpha Astalion> AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! TYRANID BIOMASS!!! INCOMING HIVE FLEET!!!
[19:52] * Springfield just GETS HER RIFLE AND HEADS FOR THE BROKEN WINDOW!
[19:52] <Springfield> OH THAT'S IT! NO MORE "SAINTLY SPRINGFIELD" NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[19:54] <Z-23> OR...will you pull the wool over your OWN eyes and accept the undying love and affection of the Vater into your own neural matrix?
[19:54] <Z-23> Sooooooooo REPENT!
[19:55] *** The cutscene shows U-47 suddenly brightening up.
[19:55] <Z-23> Clobber those T-Dolls!
[19:56] *** The next scene shows U-47 suddenly spinning around and nailing HK416 in the face with a MASSIVE roundhouse punch that sends her FLYING backwards off her feet!!
[19:58] <Z-23> Adore those magnificent fox-children!
[19:59] *** The next cutscene shows Atago with Antilzha and...OH CRAP!!!!
[20:01] <Z-23> UND LOBE DEN VATER!!!!
[20:03] * Z-23 joins in the ecstatic screaming and...HOLY CRAP!!! Now they've all got ARCTIC KITS riding on their heads! And LAFFEY and AYANAMI are in the crowd too!!!!
[20:04] * Z-23 starts frothing at the mouth and babbling as Friedrich der Grosse's sultry, deep voice comes over.
[20:06] <Friedrich der Grosse> Join the Great Church of the Onryo! Eternal love and salvation shall be yours, or TRIPLE your snack-rations back.
[20:11] *** The CheesyKits logo comes back on!
[20:22] * ~ The projector powers down for the night. Thank you all for coming!
[21:32] <Synthoid X> what..are you doing?
[21:32] <Joanna Smithson> see....
[21:32] <Joanna Smithson> there's a little secret even my sis doesn't know
[21:33] <Joanna Smithson> .....she's not the only one who can draw on planet power
[21:33] * Joanna Smithson tightens her fist..and concentrates......raising her ki...........
[21:33] <Joanna Smithson> grr....

[21:35] * Synthoid X yawns
[21:36] <Synthoid X> are you done ye-
[21:36] * Synthoid X blinks
[21:37] * Joanna Smithson 's body starts to get gain a green outline
[21:37] * Joanna Smithson slowly looks up..as a quinox symbol appears on her forehead
[21:38] *** green lightening starts to spark across the sky as the clouds start to turn dark
[21:39] * Joanna Smithson ROARS as her energy EXPLODES outwards
[21:39] * Synthoid X is pushed back by the sheer force
[21:39] * Joanna Smithson is engulfed by a massive energy pillar of swirling glowing clouds
[21:40] * Synthoid X tries to get a reading...but it's reading no energy output
[21:40] <Synthoid X> WHAT...WHAT...WHAT
[21:41] * Joanna Smithson (Quinox) stands there....her hair has a slight greenish tint to it, a glowing quinox symbol on her forehead..her eyes glowing
[21:41] <Synthoid X> what ar-
[21:42] * Synthoid X is punched in the gut by Joanna..the sound of the punch causing a sonic boom which ripples across the island and into Tokkyo
[21:44] * Synthoid X stumbles back, coughing up green liquid
[21:44] <Synthoid X> wh...that..that's impossible
[21:45] * Synthoid X blinks...Joanna is gone
[21:45] <Synthoid X> wh...where did-
[21:45] * Synthoid X gets SLAMMED from the other side and goes crashing through several buildings on the island
[21:47] * Synthoid X keeps getting pinballed around...unable to keep up visually or through power sensing
[21:50] <Synthoid X> s..slow d-
[21:50] * Synthoid X gets sent flying into the air!
[21:52] * Synthoid X gets hit with such force it's sent flying down deep into the island..nearly splitting it in half
[21:55] * Joanna Smithson (Quinox) looks down...
[21:59] *** the ground shakes...as a HUGE roaring mass of buildings and machinery rises........
[21:59] <Synthoid X10> - YOU FIGHTERS ARE NOTHING....WE ARE THE FUTURE -
[22:00] * Synthoid X10 wrenches itself up and goes to grab at Joanna!
[22:00] * Joanna Smithson (Quinox) puts her hands together as energy crackles around her, her eyes burning as rings of energy swirl around her
[22:00] <Joanna Smithson (Quinox)> YOU'RE NOTHING BUT BULLS[BLEEP]T
[22:01] <Joanna Smithson (Quinox)> ♦ QUINOX....
[22:01] <Joanna Smithson (Quinox)> ♦ PLANET...
[22:01] <Joanna Smithson (Quinox)> ♦ POWER....
[22:01] * Joanna Smithson (Quinox) 's hands suddenly glow with green energy which swirls around
[22:02] <Synthoid X10> - THIS IS..THE END.... -
[22:02] <Joanna Smithson (Quinox)> ♦ KAAAAA...MEEEEEE...HAAAAAA...MEEEEEEEEEEEE
[22:03] <Joanna Smithson (Quinox)> ♦ HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
[22:03] * Joanna Smithson (Quinox) fires a MASSIVE green blast of energy at the Synthoid
[22:04] * Synthoid X10 SCREAMS as it's consumed in the energy, which PUSHES it down into the ground.......through the energy....and out the other side into space......before it EXPLODES
[22:04] *** Synthoid X10 has left #suburbansenshi3
[22:05] * Joanna Smithson (Quinox) 's power subsides...as she passes out in midflight and starts to plummit to the ground
[19:23] * The projector starts to power up
[19:29] *** The Cheesykits logo appears on the screens...but it's riddled with static and distortions.
[19:33] *** There are glimpses of another symbol within the distortions, but it's not anything you can recognize.
[19:36] *** The scene switches to a desolate rocky plain strewn with what looks like dust and cinders. Bodies are lying everywhere. A battle occurred there recently as fires are still burning in some places, you can see wrecked vehicles nearby, some of the people are still struggling to cling to life, and glowing ashes are falling from the sky like some kind of infernal snowfall.
[19:38] *** Small things are scuttling around in the background, keeping their distance. They're partially concealed by the fog but their beady red eyes gleam brightly in the dim light.
[19:40] *** A lone figure marches forward, moving at a steady pace. His cloak billows slightly as he walks, revealing that he's wearing what's obviously a Van Saar hostile environment suit. The broadsword he's clutching in his left hand looks like it's organic in nature. The blade seems to be rippling and vibrating on its own like it's alive to some degree.
[19:43] *** Solarchos [Fallen0081@EnclaveFedCom.Net] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[19:43] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Solarchos
*** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[19:44] * Solarchos has acid scars on the left side of his face, and his left ear is gone. This footage was definitely taken during the Zealot War.
[19:46] <Solarchos> I don't want this. I don't want to unleash this nightmare, but you've given me no choice.
[19:48] * Solarchos (wartime) passes by what looks like a Magical Girl wearing modern body armor. She's been critically wounded from multiple shrapnel wounds and partial disembowelment. She sees Solarchos and starts scrambling for a weapon.
[19:49] * Solarchos (wartime) draws a pistol and shoots the Magical Girl twice in the chest.
[19:49] <Solarchos (wartime)> We just wanted to be left alone, but you kept attacking us.
[19:51] *** Another Magical Girl struggles to her feet a short distance away. She charges at Solarchos, brandishing an exquisitely-polished silver runic axe.
[19:52] * Solarchos (wartime) sidesteps her lunge, levels his sword at her, and skewers her on the tip, then DRIVES the blade through and lifts her off the ground. She lets out a long, hoarse shriek of excruciating pain and spasms wildly...while the Warp-Blade chitters and squeals hungrily as it devours the girl's mana.
[19:55] <Solarchos (wartime)> We just want to create our OWN society. Based on our OWN laws and our OWN values. We don't want to be part of your Alliance. We don't want to live by YOUR rules. We want to live by our OWN rules. Not yours!
[19:59] *** Another Magical Girl charges at him. He swings the Warp-Blade and sends the body of the Girl that was impaled upon it flying at the new one. The Magical Girl is struck hard by the flung corpse and knocked to the ground. Before she can get back up, Solarchos stomps down on her stomach and drives the Blade down through her chest.
[20:01] <Solarchos (wartime)> You invaded our home. You unleashed a Tyranid fleet on us. You sent the Necrons against us. You attacked my FAMILY!
[20:02] * Solarchos (wartime) continues walking towards a low hill in the distance, dragging the dead Magical Girl with him by the collar of her armor vest. The scuttling things that have been skulking in the shadows are following by the dozens.
[20:03] <Solarchos (wartime)> You've killed million of us because we've rejected your "progress". You've attempted to annihilate us because we're refused your authority.
[20:03] * Solarchos (wartime) keeps walking.
[20:04] <Solarchos (wartime)> My people now have only one option to avoid extermination. We will not surrender. We will not negotiate. If you refuse to end this insanity...
[20:04] <Solarchos (wartime)> THEN I WILL!!!!!!!!!!
[20:07] *** In the valley below a MASSIVE battle is raging. Soldiers by the MILLIONS swarm forward, on foot and in armored vehicles by the thousands. You see Imperial Guard, Ghost Fox Astartes and Sororitas, Tanar'ri, the Moon Rabbits of the Lunar Assault Corps, and even the Nahen Bosnal and Bondev Sashu of the Humankind Empire Abh...all of them are engaging the forces of the Alliance with an intensity that transcends mere hatred and into the realm of absolute insanity.
[20:09] * ~ Warlord Titans and Imperial Knight stride forward, unleashing city-slaughtering destruction in their path like the harbingers of Ragnarok. Their shields flicker and strobe as they struggle to absorb and deflect the impacts of hundreds of beams, bullets, and missiles that strike them every minute.
[20:11] * ~ Tanks by the thousands, Leman Russ, Predator, Land Raiders, Baneblades, FELLBLADES, roll forward like an unstoppable armored tide, not stopping for anything. Many of them are getting hit and taking damage, but they're still pushing forward.
[20:13] *** Overhead, the sky is filled with aircraft in numbers that are literally blocking out the sun and creating a hellish twilight that covers hundreds, if not thousands, of square miles below.
[20:14] *** The full might of the Federation has engaged the Alliance, and even though the Alliance outnumbers the Federation, they're LOSING. The Alliance has advanced magic, skilled casters, tremendous economic might...but they're still losing!
[20:16] * ~ The Van Saar fight with a savagery and determination that vastly exceeds anything the Alliance has. For every one Alliance soldier that falls, ten more take their place!! But...TWENTY Alliance soldiers are dying for every ONE Van Saar killed!
[20:18] * ~ The powerfully advanced weapons donated by Mars are unleashed...and are countered by the Federation's arcaneotech. Alliance anti-proton beams tear into tanks and Titans, but Van Saar flare-shields and MICA plating withstand the hits to a far better degree than anticipated. Alliance battle drones, originally believed to be unbeatable, are being brought down by Tech-magic and mana-cannons.
[20:18] <Solarchos (wartime)> So let there be war! In all its glory and all its horror!
[20:19] *** The scene switches to show...oh no!
[20:19] *** Reisen Udongein Inaba [LunaticMoonRabbit@FedCom.Net (Pirated Serve] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:19] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Reisen Udongein Inaba
*** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[20:20] * Reisen Udongein Inaba marches forward, wearing heavy plate armor like something straight out of Jin-Roh, the Wolf Bridage. She locks her helmet into place (complete with rabbit ears), charges a belt-fed machine gun, and joins the battle.
[20:25] *** Sailor Pluto (before her demotion) sprints forward, swinging left and right as she cuts through an entire squad of Van Saar. She skids to a halt and blanches as she sees who's in front of her now.
[20:25] *** Sakuya Izayoi [PerfectandElegant Maid@EnclaveFedCom.Net (pirated)] has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:25] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Sakuya Izayoi
*** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[20:26] * Sakuya Izayoi is dressed in her darkly elegant and elegantly dark Touhouvania outfit. She glares coldly at Sailor Pluto, then starts materializing daggers by the HUNDREDS in mid-air around her.
[20:27] <Solarchos (wartime)> Let every horror be inflicted to defeat YOUR people.
[20:32] *** An Alliance battlecruiser hovers a couple of miles above the surface, attempting to provide ground support. Suddenly, it's engulfed by a HUGE energy beam for several seconds.
[20:33] * Solarchos (wartime) The beam fades out, and the battlecruiser emerges with most of its outer armor boiled away. A chain reaction of internal explosions begin almost immediately as huge gouts of fire erupt from every hull breach.
[20:33] *** The battlecruiser begins a long, slow fall towards the ground, and flying away from the area (on a BROOM of all things) is none other than...
[20:34] *** Marisa Kirisame has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:34] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Marisa Kirisame *** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[20:34] * Marisa Kirisame grins in savage joy as she starts looking for a new target for another Master Spark.
[20:35] <Solarchos (wartime)> Let every atrocity be committed to save MY people!
[20:35] *** Flandre Scarlet has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:35] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Flandre Scarlet *** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[20:36] * Flandre Scarlet is standing atop the ravaged bodies of several of the Alliance's magical super-soldiers, doing the "Feels Good" meme.
[20:41] *** Nearby, Reimu Hakurei HERSELF is glaring at one of the Alliance's war-commanders. One of the Alliance's greatest fighters is on the battlefield...and about to fight the Shrine-Maiden of Paradise herself. He's completely SCREWED.
[20:43] *** The scene switches, showing a Magical Girl shrieking in agony and terror as she's flung around like a ragdoll in the grip of a massive, green-skinned, tusked ogre. Wait, no. That's NOT an ogre!
[20:43] * ~ That's an ORK!!!!!!
[20:43] *** Brickfist has joined #suburbansenshi3
[20:43] <@spiritflame> konbanwa Brickfist *** Happy Constitution Day [Golden Week]!!
[20:44] * Brickfist is completely ABUSING that Magical Girl and using her to completely annihilate a group of Alliance soldiers and Magical Girls. He is beating that girl's ASS. He is beating those soldiers WITH her ass (figuratively and literally)!!!
[20:45] <Brickfist> Anotha one dead! Anotha one dead! ANOTHA ONE!
[20:45] <Brickfist> ERE WE GO! ERE WE GO! ERE WE GO!!
[20:45] <Brickfist> WAAAAAAAAAGH!!!!
[20:47] <Solarchos (wartime)> From the Outer Colonies to the Core Worlds themselves!
[20:49] *** A young VanSaar girl sprints forward. Her suit's been ripped apart and she's badly burned on her arms. Howling in rage and pain, she rushes up towards a smug-looking Magical Girl, armed with only a damaged gauss rifle mounting a bayonet. The Magical Girl looks at the charging girl with a supremely confident expression.
[20:50] * The charging girl is now known as Renpha Astalion
[20:51] * Renpha Astalion drives her bayonet up into the Magical Girl's chin and penetrates through her skull, lifting her off the ground from the force of the impact and turning her expression of supreme smugness into cosmic disbelief.
[20:54] *** As you all watch you start to become aware of something very strange within the recording. You start making out currents of magic flowing around and through the whole region. The amount of energy being channeled is increasing exponentially and you can just make out traces of temporal energy too.
[20:56] *** In the battles scenes you catch glimpses of people who are neither Alliance nor Federation: the Ordo Chronos is there too. They're fighting an intense battle against Something Else that's attempting to alter the outcome of the battle. Something is trying to alter the timeline in a desperate attempt to prevent THIS.
[21:00] *** As you watch, you notice one person standing out, firing non-stop. You start to recognize her features, and then you discern her Importance.
[21:01] *** She is the Alliance's greatest mistake and the Federation's most faithful ally: the Eternal Guardian
[21:03] *** The Eternal Guardian and the Ordo Chronos WON. The Alliance FAILED to stop what's happening here: a ritual designed to cast a spell of interstellar proportions. A spell is being cast capable of killing a god.
[21:03] *** Or CREATING one.
[21:06] * Solarchos (wartime) reaches a specific spot. It's the very center of a massive casting circle hundreds of miles across.
[21:10] *** Standing equidistant around the perimeter of the circle are none that Yuyuko Saigyougi, Suwako Moriya, Kanako Yasaka, Byakuren, Satori, Shikieki Yamaxanadu, Reimu Hakurei, and Yukari Yakumo.
[21:10] *** The scene switches back to Solarchos, and the creatures following him become visible: KYUBEYS! DOZENS of them! What the hell?!
[21:13] * ~ Flying high overhead, dodging the weapons fire and aircraft, is none other than Utsuho Reiuji in all her radioactive glory. Her Core Rod is materialized and her energy levels are at maximum. She's holding position directly over Solarchos' location and staring down at him with the most beatific, enraptured expression on her face.
[21:15] * Solarchos (wartime) is still talking, but now you realize it's not just "talk". He's reciting the Words to the ritual!
[21:15] <Solarchos (wartime)> From the shores of Terra to the Galactic Rim!
[21:16] *** The Kyubeys are in a frenzy now. "Fulfill! Fulfill! Fulfill!"
[21:16] <Solarchos (wartime)> Let the seas boil! Let the stars fall!
[21:18] *** Over a thousand radios a voice starts to frantically broadcast over static. "We surrender! We surrender! The whole galaxy surrenders! Just stop! Please stop! Don't say the words! DON'T SAY THE WORDS!!"
[21:19] <Solarchos (wartime)> Though it may take the last drop of my blood, I will see my people FREE! I will see my family LIVE!
[21:20] * Utsuho Reiuji takes aim at Solarchos with tears in her eyes. She knows she's about to witness something beautiful, and her actions are motivated by pure love.
[21:20] <Utsuho Reiuji> :D
[21:21] <Solarchos (wartime)> And if I must destroy everything in order to guarantee all of this...
[21:22] * Solarchos (wartime) is struck by a single beam, completely bathing him in energy and engulfing him in an almighty explosion that washes over the entire battlefield. All fighting ceases immediately as Titans and Knights stagger, tanks are nearly knocked over, aircraft are nearly torn from the sky, and soldiers are blown over by gale-force winds.
[21:23] *** The physical effects of the explosion were much SMALLER than they should have been. The magical and metaphysical effects, however, were amplified into the double-digit gigaton range.
[21:25] *** A psychic wave explodes outwards, reaching across whole parsecs. All throughout the Federation's forces, everyone freezes as they're affected by it. The Alliance forces immediately start to flee as rapidly as they can. They only get a head-start of a few minutes before the Federation's forces recover.
[21:26] *** The VanSaar and the Ghost Foxes start counterattacking with even GREATER ferocity...and the bodies of the deceased start to get back up and attack the Alliance's forces. The desperate retreat turns into a panic-fueled rout.
[21:29] *** The smoke starts to clear, and Utsuho lands in front of a slender , coppery-haired pre-teen boy. He looks sickly and pale. His eyes, which now glow dark turquoise, burn with barely-restrained wrath and fury.
[21:30] * Utsuho Reiuji falls to her knees before the Dark Angel of Death.
[21:30] * Solarchos is now known as The Onryo
[21:31] * The Onryo has been summoned at last, and empowered by something infinitely worse: the Essence of the WARMASTER
[21:31] <The Onryo> - And if I must destroy everything in order to guarantee all of this...then let the galaxy [size=18]BURN!!![/i] -
[21:32] <The Onryo> - BURN!!! -
[21:35] *** The images fade into static. Soon a bunch of letters start to appear, spelling out the words "Can you love a monster?"
[21:38] *** The strange logo reappears, then vanishes as the projector shuts down.
[11:15] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: Devil's Island
[11:18] <Dark Priest> Reginae Lunae antiquae. Rex daemonum evigilavit. Pacem fac cum quam minimis amicis terrestribus reliquisti.
[11:21] <Pinako> This was your plan, the one you waited over 12,500 years for?
[11:21] <Dark Priest> Ita, Luna Antiqua Regina. Homines, hi homines "Youma" appellant, et omnis alius ex hac tellure abibit.
[11:22] *** Horns rise out of the ground from behind the Dark Priest.
[11:25] *** Before a face can be made out, the ground breaks. and the being rises into the sky and spreads a black smoke.
[11:26] <Dark Priest> Generatio tua et Opposita eorum omnem animam a corporibus abstulerunt et abstulerunt. Solus est tibi residuus.
[11:27] <Quartzite> You dared.... You DARED!
[11:27] * Quartzite is shaking his fist.
[11:27] <Dark Priest> Ah vero, desertor e Terrae Regno.
[11:34] <Pinako> we'll either have to seal that thing back up or destroy it.
[11:34] *** To Be Continued later today.
[14:30] *** Returning to the plot.
[14:31] * Pinako is holding 9 stone slabs.
[14:31] <Pinako> where is the last one?
[14:48] <Quartzite> I don't see the last slab... what if that creature has it?
[14:50] <Pinako> That creature... we'll have to find her later then.
[14:53] * Pinako lays down the slabs in a circle, there are the five oppositios, then the slabs whose figures resemble Katrina Suino, Daniel Kano, Hikaru Kindai and Narun Osaka.
[15:04] <Pinako> Come on, I know you're all around here, please, I need you, all of you.
[15:05] *** the slabs begin glowing, pillars of light shining from them.
[15:49] * stands glowing a shiny silver.
[15:49] * Pinako *^
[15:49] * Pinako takes a running start.
[15:50] * Pinako jumps and takes off towards the sky.
[15:53] * Pinako flies towards the monster head on.
[15:55] <Pinako> Give everyone back!
[15:58] <Pinako> Give them back!
[15:58] * Pinako attacks the Creature head on
[16:00] *** the creature doesn't recoil, but something else is beginning to pop out of its head... a treasure!
[16:01] *** The creature grins and throws fireballs.
[16:01] * flies over to grab it, and another color forms in the rainbow
[16:05] * Pinako *^
[16:09] *** testing
[16:09] <Pinako> testing
[16:11] <Pinako> (( screw it, Multicolored text for the voice might as well be white text : ))
[16:11] <Pinako> *:(
[16:12] <Pinako> (( * :( ))
[16:12] * Pinako goes towards the creature to land another blow with a vine, and another treasure comes out, along with a glowing ball, flying towards the city!
[16:13] *** The creature SCREAMS!
[16:14] <Pinako> That's one down, and many more to go!
[16:14] * Pinako flies towards the creature again, yet another color added to her rainbow.
[16:15] * Pinako Knocks over the creature in a head on collision!
[16:15] *** Another scream, as the third treasure goes out, along with another glowing ball... which flies towards Pinako!
[16:15] <Pinako> Ah!
[16:16] *** Everythign turns white for Pinako, as the imagery is now replaced with the moon.
[16:16] <Pinako> ♦ What, how?... Wait, was that ball?
[16:17] <Pinako> Of course, It was me!
[16:17] <Pinako> It took you a while, huh?
[16:18] <Pinako> ♦ but, where is everyone else?
[16:19] <Pinako> That monster still has them, if we get them out, their bodies could be restored!
[16:21] *** the backdrop of the Moon fades away as the monster growls.
[16:26] * Pinako Flies once again towards the demonic monster.
[16:45] *** the battlefield turns into a bright flash!
[17:03] *** the Dark priest has perished, leaving behind the remnants of a once holy person of the Earth Kingdom, turned evil by the demonic creature, its name being Zatournas, with the creature finally defeated, the world can be at peace... for at all probability the next few minutes, there's always a new one right around the corner, eh?
[17:05] *** according to a hidden scroll, its name had mutated over the years into the Latin word "Satanas" which means, well, If you know, you know.
[15:37] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: The Other Side of the Milky Way Galaxy
[15:38] * Griselda makes her way further and further down into the depths of this isolated base, Ramlethal leading the way in accordance with the data she uncovered.
[15:38] * Elphelt is bringing up the rear, rifle at the ready for whatever else might be down here.
[15:39] <Ramlethal> ....hmm...
[15:39] <Ramlethal> Here.
[15:39] * Ramlethal presses at a small indentation in the wall, and it suddenly lights up, revealing a hidden door.
[15:40] <Griselda> Nice find.
[15:40] <Ramlethal> :)
[15:43] * Griselda heads to the access panel. "....all right, looks like this still works."
[15:43] <Griselda> Interface port.... interface port.... aha.
[15:44] * Griselda slots a small device into the port --- Nemissa is now checking around and through the system.
[16:03] <Griselda> Any luck?
[16:04] <Nemissa> ♦ You weren't kidding about the data rot --- this whole system had to have been held together with the will of the Seraph himself.
[16:06] <Nemissa> ♦ Gimme a bit longer, I think I'm close.....
[16:22] <Nemissa> ♦ Done!
[16:22] * Nemissa exits the system as the doors finally scrape open.
[16:24] *** The doors open, revealing an immense chamber filled with technology not seen in literal millennia...
[16:24] <Elphelt> ...my goodness... look at this stuff -- Noel and Haru would be besides themselves.
[16:25] <Ramlethal> .....??
[16:25] * Ramlethal heads over to what appears to be a preservation unit. She peers inside....
[16:27] <Ramlethal> !!
[16:28] <Ramlethal> Her!
[16:28] <Griselda> Huh?
[16:28] * Griselda and Elphelt venture over to see what has Ram's hackles raised...
[16:28] <Griselda> ....wait, that's the one called "Mary", isn't it?
[16:29] <Elphelt> According to the logs, yes -- the one who coerced hundreds into this project, when it was supposed to be a voluntary offer.
[16:31] <Ramlethal> .....I don't get it.... why?
[16:31] <Griselda> Dunno -- guess we'll have to get the answers out of her once we wake her up.
[16:33] <Griselda> Nemissa, anything we ought to know about these cyborgs before we go activating them?
[16:38] <Nemissa> Let's see here.... according to the logs, these cyborgs fit under one of three different designations.
[16:39] <Nemissa> One line was built for social interactions, to help keep the populace sane during ongoing problems, like whatever cataclysm hit the planet.
[16:39] <Nemissa> A second like was focused on increasing technological developments, not just in everyday tech, but also in fielding new updates and upgrades.
[16:41] <Nemissa> The third line was made of combat troops, both frontline and ---- wait a tic...
[16:41] <Griselda> What?
[16:42] <Nemissa> ....seems there's a fourth faction --- a splinter group, made up of various units from the other three lines.
[16:42] <Nemissa> Seems the individuals who comprised this group had some fallings-out with their original designations, and decided to do things their own way.
[16:43] <Nemissa> Appears they chose to wander this world, which means any bases they have could be literally anywhere topside.
[16:47] <Nemissa> For now, I'd work on figuring out which preservation pods are safe to open --- the inhabitants might know more.
[16:52] <Ramlethal> ....safe
[16:52] <Ramlethal> ??
[16:53] <Nemissa> Look at these things --- I'm banking on a repeat of what happened inside the Zone, that some of the pods might've either failed or gone haywire.
[16:54] <Griselda> ...well, thanks to that data we at least have some idea of which pods to check.
[16:55] <Griselda> Elphelt, you'll handle the line responsible for Social Interactions. Ram, you got the combat units. As for me, I'll be looking into the technologically focused ones.
[16:55] <Griselda> Let's split.
[17:04] *** With that, they all headed for their designated searches.
[18:25] <Elphelt> ....feels like I've been at this for days...
[18:25] <Griselda> It's only been three hours.
[18:26] <Elphelt> ....seriously?
[18:26] <Ramlethal> .....mmmm.... think i found a Kansen...
[18:26] <Elphelt> Wait what
[18:27] * Elphelt scurries over to take a look. "......my word, this one does remind me of a Kansen...."
[18:29] <Elphelt> Bet Solar's crew would flip once they see her.
[18:29] <Griselda> Anyway, I'm about done with my end.... most of these pods I don't trust to open immediately.
[18:30] <Griselda> Truthfully, I'm planning on simply annexing these old worlds --- it'd give us a lot more time to study their history, and learn of what went down over here.
[18:34] <Ramlethal> ....won't some people get suspicious?
[18:34] <Griselda> Not like there's anyone out on this end of the galaxy who'd notice a trio of dead planets disappearing.
[18:43] <Griselda> It'll be a pain and a half to go through all the official channels, but at this point I don't care.
[18:48] <Griselda> It'd be an honest waste for this kind of technology to sit here and collect dust.
[18:48] <Griselda> That said....
[18:50] <Griselda> .....
[18:50] <Elphelt> ..........something wrong?
[18:50] <Ramlethal> ..... not alone down here....
[18:58] <Griselda> Ram's right. We've an interloper....
[19:02] <Nemissa> Not just one interloper --- I'm picking up two of 'em.
[19:02] * Nemissa shares her findings with the group, tagging the pair of interlopers.
[19:03] *** Realizing they've been outed, the spying pair split up and depart to separate ends of the complex.
[19:03] <Griselda> Nemi, any idea where they're headed?
[19:04] <Nemissa> Not certain, given the only exit out is behind us....
[19:04] <Nemissa> Ram, El, you should split up and go for each one. Boss, we should keep here in-case one of 'em tries to double-back and escape.
[19:05] *** The two T-Dolls each head after their assigned target....
[15:07] * Elphelt cautiously makes her way towards the signal she was following...
[15:08] <Elphelt> (Quite thankful we sprang for that upgrade...)
[15:09] * Elphelt listens, adjusting her audio receptors....
[15:10] * Elphelt realizes the target is behind her, and whirls around on the spot, pistol in-hand as she levels it at---
[15:10] <Elphelt> ...wait, are you--
[15:10] *** Meanwhile...
[15:11] * Ramlethal stalks her way towards her target. Her blades are shrunken down, ready for a faster drawl in contrast to their larger size working for extra power.
[15:12] * Ramlethal looks around, trying to find whatever works as cover in this room.
[15:12] <Ramlethal> .......?!
[15:12] * Ramlethal snaps her head to the side, and enlarges one of her blades to act as a shield --- and in time, as someone's fist impacts against it!
[15:13] *** The sparks from the impact briefly illuminate Ram's attacker...
[15:13] <Ramlethal> ???
[20:25] <Griselda> ....so this is what it feels like, being the last line...
[20:26] <Nemissa> Right now, El and Ram are undoubtedly holding their own.... though I can't get a clear reading on their assailants.
[20:27] <Nemissa> I have a general idea of their presence, just nothing fully concrete.
[20:27] <Nemissa> ....oh dear.
[20:28] <Griselda> Nemi, what did you find?
[20:28] <Nemissa> Seems the brawl has drawn company. I'm reading two more signals headed right for us.
[20:29] <Nemissa> IFF is a no-go, sadly. We'll have to adjust as we go.
[20:30] <Griselda> Lovely. :/
[20:31] <Griselda> Their heading?
[20:31] <Nemissa> .......directly above us, and moving downwards stupidly quick. They'll be here in about three minutes.
[20:32] <Griselda> Days like these I wish my brother wasn't such a shut-in.
[20:35] * Griselda sighs, and readies her weaponry. She's hoping these ones won't be hostile, but....
[20:39] <Nemissa> Contact in 10 seconds....
[20:39] * Griselda readies herself, and prepares to confront the new arrivals.
[20:44] *** The two new presences arrive...
[21:04] <Q.E.C.> ♦ Video linkup requested.
[21:06] <Griselda> ...Oh great, what now?!
[21:06] * Griselda has summoned her twin axes to fend off her assailants --- one is trying to snipe her, whilst the other has unfolded her gun into a nasty laser-scythe!
[21:07] <Griselda> Nemi!
[21:07] <Nemissa> On it!
[21:07] * Nemissa quickly accepts the request.
[21:09] <Nemissa> dm As the "Starship Floofers" presentation plays out, Griselda's two assailants briefly pause, not quite able to comprehend the madness they're watching.
[21:09] *** ^
[21:10] <Griselda> ......what.
[21:11] *** Looks like Cheesykits is getting everything set up for Starship Floofers 2.
[21:12] * Griselda sees this as an opportunity, and ignites her blades. She makes a quick strike to dismantle the scythe-wielder's weapon!
[21:14] *** Oh wow! It's the Vulpesmunda invasion! The Xenofluff swarm has begun, and the T-Dolls are getting "slaughtered"!!!!!
[21:15] *** The assailants' weapons are dismantled -- one with an axe swing, the other with a Boomerang Axe Toss!
[21:15] *** Annnnd, there goes HK-416 getting "slaughtered". And UMP-45! And there's UMP-9 earning her crown as the Scream Queen!
[21:18] *** In the meanwhile...
[21:18] * Ramlethal is continuing her bout against her mystery foe, using her immense blades to shield her --- whomever she's fighting is able to move and react at a disturbingly fast speed.
[21:20] * Elphelt , on the other hand, is enjoying a bit of success --- her opponent sadly brought a rocket launcher to a very cramped facility; firing that thing off will undoubtedly cause a catastrophe.
[21:24] * Elphelt now has her opponent in a headlock.
[21:24] <???> Gggaaahhhh this is the WORST
[21:25] <???> How does this crap keep happening to me? Did I piss off someone in a previous life?!
[21:27] *** Suddenly the facility's lights activate, giving everyone a bit of an eye-ache.
[21:28] *** I believe that will be enough. Anis, Rapi.... and even Harrin and Snow White, cease at once.
[21:28] <!!!> ♦ ^^
[21:28] <Nemissa> Who in the....
[02:02] * Eilean streaches and gets up
[02:02] <Eilean> ...*sigh*
[02:02] * Eilean walks over to the room with the light on...
[02:02] <Eilean> ...ok you bunch..time for bed
[02:02] <Kyra> awww but mom!
[02:02] <Eilean> no buts....you three..in bed now
[02:03] * Mira looks dissapointed but heads over to one of the futons on the floor
[02:04] <Kyra> ok ok....
[02:04] * Kyra climbs into her bed
[02:05] <Eilean> and I especally mean YOU, Beryl...I don't want you wandering around..not here
[02:05] <Beryl> :O
[02:06] <Eilean> so you get to bed
[02:06] <Beryl> auntie tell story? :O
[02:06] * Beryl climbs into bed.
[02:07] * Eilean sighs..Kyra and Mira look annoyed..but Eilean sits down
[02:07] <Eilean> alright..if you insist
[02:08] * Beryl claps from under the covers :D
[02:12] * Eilean starts telling the story
[02:16] * Beryl falls asleep by the end of the story -.-zzzzz
[02:18] * Eilean sighs and rubs the back of her neck, standing up
[02:18] <Eilean> ok..you two...you get some sleep too
[02:18] * Eilean walks over and turns off the lights, closing the bedroom door
[07:01] *** The facility's lights turn on, giving Griselda's group a much better look at their assailants.
[07:04] * Ramlethal is blocking an attack from this woman.
[07:05] * Elphelt has this woman in a headlock.
[07:09] * Griselda has disabled the weapons of these two.
[07:10] <Anis> I GIVE I GIVE JUST LEMME GO ALREADY
[07:10] <!!!> ♦ Enough.
[07:10] <!!!> ♦ Calm down, all of you.
[07:11] <Griselda> And who might you be?
[07:11] <Rapi> !!!! That voice...
[07:11] <Rapi> But, there's no way...
[07:11] <Rapi> Even Harran couldn't have--
[07:11] <Harran> ........there's a voice I haven't heard in a long time...
[07:13] <Harran> So how are you still around, Mirian? Last I saw you got ripped apart by those monsters.
[07:13] <Mirian?> ♦ ....to be honest, even I'm not certain.
[07:15] <Mirian?> ♦ All I do remember is someone finding me, but after that it's a blank.... and then as our new visitors searched the old bases we had constructed, I felt myself waking up.
[07:18] <Nemissa> If you're able to chat with us, then it means you have to be here somewhere. Care to meet face-to-face?
[07:18] <Mirian?> ♦ One moment....
[07:18] *** The facility shakes a bit, as a hidden passageway opens, leading upwards.
[07:19] <Mirian?> ♦ This way.
[07:19] <Snow White> ...........
[07:19] * Griselda recalls Elphelt and Ramlethal, whom arrive with their former opponents. The group heads up the passage.
[07:23] *** The group arrives at what appears to be a massive generator / supercomputer. There is a single pod at its core.
[07:23] <Snow White> ....that's you in there, isn't it?
[07:24] <Mirian?> ♦ Indeed. I don't know who placed me in here or why, but it has allowed me access to a fair amount of the facilities we had constructed.
[07:24] <Elphelt> Um, we've been meaning to ask about that -- what happened to this world?
[07:25] <Rapi> Monsters the likes of which we've never seen before began invading.
[07:25] <Rapi> Even with each new advancement we made the enemy persisted.
[07:26] <Anis> Ugh, those things were gross... kill one of 'em, three more would take their place; it never stopped.
[07:26] <Harran> Even my ability to reanimate the fallen did little to stem those things.
[07:27] <Mirian?> flash It is as they say... from what records I can gather, it has been roughly 36,211 years since that invasion.
[07:27] <Mirian?> ♦ ^
[07:28] <Mirian?> ♦ There was a ruling body during that time, but reports had come in citing their destruction. Of course, we had more than a few disagreements with their method of ruling, so no tears were shed.
[07:33] <Griselda> Many of the logs also mentioned you had trade going on with the two neighboring worlds.
[07:34] <Mirian?> ♦ We did, largely an exchange of metals and ores, many of which went into our construction.
[07:34] <Mirian?> ♦ And speaking of which, how did you construct those two?
[07:34] * Mirian? refers to Elphelt and Ramlethal.
[07:35] <Griselda> Oh, I didn't build these two. There were companies on the other end of the galaxy whom did. Hell, it was Ramlethal here who found a file that pointed us in your direction.
[07:36] * Ramlethal shows the file in question.
[07:36] <Mirian?> .........this is.....
[07:36] <Mirian?> ♦ Me...
[07:36] <Anis> Ehh?
[07:37] <Mirian?> ♦ This file, it's of my original body. How did it end up in your hands?
[07:37] <Ramlethal> ......uncertain. Found it inside an old data storage unit.
[07:38] <Ramlethal> All kinds of things tend to find their way towards us.
[07:39] <Mirian?> ♦ ....curious. Griselda, was it -- you mentioned annexing this world?
[07:40] <Griselda> That I did. If approved, it'd mean relocating this planet so as to keep it closer to the worlds under my family's guidance.
[07:41] <Griselda> In all honesty I was planning to add your two trading worlds in the deal as well.
[07:41] <Mirian?> ♦ I see.... honestly, doesn't sound too bad.
[07:42] <Rapi> And what of us, and those still sealed within their pods?
[07:45] <Griselda> That'd be the tricky part. Of course, you'd be more than welcome to room with my folks, but if that doesn't suit you there are a number of worlds and individuals to sign up with.
[07:47] <Griselda> I'd personally say leave the question up to each person once they're unsealed.
[07:47] <Griselda> On that note.... how many of these pods are safe to open?
[07:48] <Harran> ...safe?
[07:48] <Nemissa> On a previous campaign, there had been other individuals in a situation much like this --- some of their stasis pods had malfunctioned, rendering the people in question either dead or very close to it.
[07:49] <Nemissa> If we're going to open them up, we'd like to ensure as minimal an issue as possible.
[07:55] <Mirian?> ♦ Hmm....
[07:59] <Mirian?> ♦ It's going to take a little doing, but I should be able to send a signal indicating which pods can be safely opened and which ones will need more time to fix.
[08:01] <Griselda> All right. I'm gonna get in touch with my company and get some groundwork laid out.
[08:36] * Griselda finishes up on a deal. "Here, read it over for yourselves."
[08:40] <Mirian?> ♦ Hmm...
[08:42] <Harran> That's a bit open-ended. You're really fine with some of us choosing to relocate elsewhere?
[08:43] <Griselda> Trying to force the issue will only lead to problems down the road. Not everyone will be on-board with signing up with us.
[08:54] <Mirian?> ♦ An interesting set of terms. Very well -- I'm in.
[09:05] <Anis> F it, I'm in as well.
[09:05] <Rapi> Very well.
[09:06] <Snow White> .....sure.
[09:06] <Mirian?> ♦ So then, what next--
[09:06] <Mirian?> ♦ :!
[09:06] <Mirian?> ♦ The sky -- it just---
[09:07] *** A view outside would show the sky changing significantly -- the stars and other celestial bodies disappearing, only to be replaced with new ones.
[09:07] <Griselda> Well, I did say that the worlds were going to get relocated. That wasn't merely a figure of speech.
[09:08] <Nemissa> ....say, now that I'm thinking about it, is your body still mangled from the earlier invasion? Is that why you're still in that pod?
[09:09] <Mirian?> ♦ Yes. My pod has been rerouting whatever excess resources it could gather in order to rebuild myself.
[09:10] <Mirian?> ♦ Sadly, a few key elements have been keeping me from accomplishing that goal.
[09:15] <Mirian?> ♦ Namely, what I need is a certain core that comprises each of us. It helps regulate many of my systems.
[09:22] <Nemissa> If one can't be found, then it'll either have to be built.... or scavenged from one of the fallen.
[09:25] <Mirian?> ♦ ....I'd much rather that be a last resort.
[09:26] <Rapi> This would be a bit easier if we knew where anyone from Missilis was kept. Of all of us they were the ones spearheading development.
[09:27] <Mirian?> ♦ I've been making attempts to ID each unit, but the data's so old and corrupted it'd take me a long while, even if I had assistance.
[09:30] <Mirian?> ♦ That said, the pods that are cleared for opening will have a blue light. Pods that need more time will be purple, and pods with the deceased are red.
[09:34] <Griselda> Well, no time like the present. Let's get to finding that core.
[15:45] * Kyra tries to get the opening off the cardboard box
[15:45] <Kyra> ><
[16:02] <Kyra> it's stuck!
[16:02] <Mira> ....very heavy
[16:22] * Mira watches Kyra struggle with the cardboard box
[16:40] <Mira> ......
[16:42] * Mira goes to get someone to help
[16:03] <Anis> ......so much for that.
[16:04] <Anis> We've turned this entire place upside-down, and no stinkin' core to show for it!
[16:04] <Snow White> Shames me to admit it, but perhaps we will have to salvage one...
[16:05] <???> There's no need for that. I have her core right nere.
[16:05] <Griselda> ?
[16:05] * Griselda and the group turn to see who said that.
[16:07] *** The group sees this rather stunning-looking woman.
[16:07] <Ramlethal> !!! Her!
[16:07] <Rapi> - Mary... -
[16:07] <Rapi> How are you still alive?
[16:08] <Mary> Yes yes, what I did all those tens of thousands of years ago... isn't like I haven't had time to reflect on it.
[16:08] <Griselda> ....what?
[16:09] <Mary> Even though we were all placed in stasis to repair our damaged bodies, not everyone was lucky enough to have their mental facilities also halted.
[16:10] <Mary> 36,211 years, 6 months, 13 days, 9 hours, 21 minutes and 19 seconds....
[16:11] <Mary> That's how long I've had to contemplate my actions.
[16:11] <Ramlethal> .....then why...
[16:12] <Mary> .................
[16:12] <Mary> ..........because I was tired.
[16:12] <Mary> Tired of having to see those I patched up shipped off to die in a nigh-endless meat grinder against monsters that defied description and just wouldn't STOP.
[16:13] <Mary> Tired of having to break the news to family members and close friends of their deaths....
[16:18] <Mary> ......but maybe now, with a new age to finally look forward to...
[16:18] * Mary reaches into her pocket, and withdraws what looks like a sphere. She tosses it over to Rapi, whom catches it easily.
[16:20] <Rapi> ....where did you get this from?
[16:20] <Mary> Who do you think put Murian in that pod to begin with?
[16:20] <Elphelt> ?!
[16:22] * Mary shrugs off her coat, revealing an extensive, and frankly horrifying amount of damage comprising the right side of her torso.
[16:23] <Mary> If there was anyone I knew who deserved to spit in death's face and survive, Murian was the one.
[16:29] <Mary> But unfortunately, when I went to use my pod to get fixed up, a malfunction occurred. My repairs were superficial, and my mind wasn't put into suspension as it usually is.
[16:30] <Mary> Though honestly, considering what I'd done, I wouldn't be surprised if someone rigged it to do so on purpose.... >.>
[16:34] <Griselda> So, what happens now?
[16:37] <Mary> Once that core's installed, Murian will be fixed up and ready to live again.
[16:39] <Mary> As you can clearly see, I'm still more than a little messed up from wading into that mess, so once my pod's reconfigured---
[16:41] <Murian> ♦ Back in you go? I admit, I'm in no position to consider how our old Commander would react, but I'd imagine that having to slowly experience the last 36,211 years in real time was more than punishment enough.
[16:45] <Mary> ....you're far too kind, Murian. Little wonder the Commander was so fond of you.
[16:47] <Mary> Well, my part is done.
[16:48] * Mary turns and heads out of the passage. About two minutes later, Murian would get an alert that Mary indeed climbed back into her pod.
[16:49] <Murian> ♦ ......
[16:51] * Rapi inserts the core into a special slot on the pod.
[16:55] <Marian> ♦ All right. Now the fragmentation is clearing up. A few minutes and I'll be ready to go.
[17:16] *** The pod eventually unlocks, and out steps Marian.
[17:19] <Marian> My, it's been too long since I last got to walk freely.
[17:20] <Marian> So, Miss Griselda.... when do we get to meet your compatriots.
[17:21] <Griselda> Rather soon, actually.
[17:26] *** As she says that, a few ships break through the atmosphere and land nearby.
[17:26] <Griselda> C'mon, got a big meet and greet to do.
[17:27] <Marian> Before that....
[17:27] * Marian heads over to a console, and begins looking through a list of names.
[17:27] <Marian> ..........
[17:27] <Marian> ...she's not here.
[17:28] <Elphelt> Hm?
[17:37] <Marian> ....an old friend of ours, one highly skilled in stealth. The company I worked for had been trying to arrange for her to test one of the prototype suits made for our frontline fighters that hadn't undergone conversion.
[17:37] <Marian> She declined every time.
[17:38] <Marian> Sadly, if she's not on the list, then she might've perished..... time collects us all, eventually.
[17:38] <Elphelt> What was your friend like?
[17:39] <Marian> A rather quiet one, rarely spoke unless absolutely necessary. Needless to say, it did earn her a few derisive comments about being more machine than human...
[17:41] <Harran> Sappy of me to say, but if you still remember her she's not entirely dead.
[17:45] <Snow White> If that's everything, let's get to meeting these people.
[17:50] *** The group leaves the central chamber and head for the ships.
[17:50] *** So ends this chapter.
[17:50] <@spiritflame> Current Location is: This Space for Lease
[17:54] * The projector starts to power up
[17:58] *** The Cheesykits logo appears!
[18:00] *** The music starts up: inspirational trumpet and drums of a military-style band. OH BOY, IT'S A FEDERATION RECRUITMENT COMMERCIAL!!!
[18:00] <~> ♦ Starship Floofers 2. Hero of the Federation
[18:04] *** As the music plays on, a rising text starts to appear.
[18:05] *** In the dark aftermath of the unprovoked Xenofluff attack on the homeworld, Federal forces crushed the enemy at Tango Urilla and captured a Queen Fluff on Planet Q.
[18:07] *** File footage of the captured Queen Fluff
[18:08] <~> ♦ Now, armed with victory, the heroic men and women of the Mobile Infantry push deep into the Xenofluff Quarantine Zone and take the fight to the Floof!
[18:10] *** The scene switches, showing the Federation flag waving as a bunch of soldiers charge forward...except.
[18:12] *** OH WOW!!! All of those soldiers are obvious CGI! OH JEEZ, and they were made by those AI programs that turn people into anatomically-twisted abominations with too many fingers and weird proportions like Mutants straight out of the Imperium of Man!!!!!
[18:13] <~Narrator> Our war is going better than ever!
[18:13] <~Narrator> But we need heros!
[18:13] <~Narrator> We need YOU!!!
[18:14] *** M16A1 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:14] <@spiritflame> konbanwa M16A1
[18:14] * M16A1 turns to the camera with a huge s[BLEEP]t-eating grin.
[18:14] <M16A1 > Come on, you dolls! You wanna live forever!
[18:16] <~> ♦ Visit your recruiter now!!
[18:16] <~Narrator> Service guarantees citizenship! Would you like to know more?
[18:17] *** The scene switches, now showing the Federation fleet orbiting an Earth-like world and dropping HUNDREDS of drop ships and assault landers towards the surface.
[18:21] <~Narrator> The Sky-Marshall launches Operation March to Victory, a bold, new strategy calling for total war against the Fluff, on every front.
[18:22] *** The next scene shows the surface of a plain that's completely SWARMING with thousands upon thousands of foxes! IT'S THE XENOFLUFFS!!!
[18:23] *** The Xenofluffs are galloping forward as dozens of Federation Thunderbolt ground-attack fighters soar overhead, firing their cannons while Marauder bombers drop their explosives.
[18:24] *** The next few seconds show incredible carnage of countless Stunt-Plushies, several of whom make high-pitched Wilheim Screams!
[18:24] *** The final scene shows a bunch of soldiers hurrying to a halt and planting a flag in the ground, Iwo Jima style.
[18:25] <~Narrator> ♦ Would you like to know more?
[18:26] *** The scene switches from the bright, grassy plains to...somewhere else!
[18:27] *** The new location is much, much different! The sky is dark and gloomy as HELL, the ground is covered in snow, ice, and rock, and snowflakes are billowing everywhere on the gusting winds!
[18:28] *** All around there's the flashing of lasrounds and lots and lots of noise!!
[18:28] <~> Look out! Look out!!
[18:28] <~> They're cutting us off!!!
[18:28] *** UMP-9 has joined #suburbansenshi3
[18:28] <@spiritflame> konbanwa UMP-9
[18:29] * UMP-9 looks a little different in this. She's wearing a rabbit ear headband on her head and what looks like a school uniform with a dark blue blazer, pleated skirt, and knee socks.
[18:31] *** OH WAIT! You've seen that outfit before! It's the uniform worn by a certain bunny-girl and the rest of the Moon-Rabbits in the Lunar Defense Corps!
[18:31] * UMP-9 is flailing and wailing as she's getting surrounded and pounced on by over a dozen Tundra Kits!
