    The ancient Maya predicted that in 2012 there would be...

    TG QUEST!!!

    Last thread: >>17612369

    In an attempt to grind out more funding on non-lynchpin worlds, the crew of the Oncoming Storm and their assorted minions have blundered into the lair-world of the Arch-Sue Sapphirus. With some of their top field agents being trapped in a portal to another world concealed in a gaudy gemmed manga volume, the team must find a way to retrieve their troops and stop the SUEs!

    After a close remote examination by the SCP, the book is deemed to be safe enough to be able to be placed in the Storm's heavily shielded containment bay, where it can be researched with robotic devices. Your scientists await your decision.

    The first of the 12 rifles should be produced by the end of the day.

    Put the book in the containment bay and have them begin working.

    Is Cheryl able to communicate with Tosh and Spike at all? Or does she feel that doing so would attract the attention of the S.U.E.'s?

    On an unrelated note, our new doctor should be making his rounds doing initial physicals and 'illegal' soldier boosts pretty much since he arrived. Please keep us posted on what squads are done with their physicals.

    Reality Emitters to full power. Have the rest of the ships come fairly close and try to overlap their cap-grade fields.

    Anyone who's dealing with the book needs to have those filter masks on. Yes, Cheryl too. Have everyone on combat alert. Can we get that holo-emitter to make with the images of things the SUEs hate? Keep it ready just in case.

    Once we get our guys out, we burn these fuckers and burn them fast. Reward would be nice, but if it comes to it just killing them will be fine.

    From what little I know of the Kingdom Hearts canon, I know that I want nothing to do with it.
    Then again, Kingdom Hearts itself is a crossover canon. It might be worth setting up a /tg/ office there. Probably get all sorts of vagrants from Disney and Final Fantasy showing up and looking for work.

Tosh says he knows one of the creatures here is Mickey Mouse, but he hasn't seen too much of 'old Terran culture'. I have though, so it's pretty obvious where there are.

    From what I've seen, the games themselves are pretty good. All the characters are slightly different crossover doubles, outside of the actual original characters. I watched playthroughs of the first couple games, once upon a time.

    For example, since Star-Lord, Data, and Darius are probably close to levelups, we could enter Data, Star-Lord, Darius and Lyla in Hercules' cup and see how well they do. Should get XP, might get an item.

    But that's AFTER we rescue our friends, introduce the S.U.E.s to an entire fleet's worth of reality emitters, shoot them with however many reality cannons and weapons we have ready at the time, and strike them off the face of the planet.

    The room was vast but dim, a yawning man-made cavern of metal that held a scattering of strange machines and devices at its center. These machines whirred and moved as they were adjusted and re-adjusted by a small crew of technicians who lovingly worked on them as if they were favored pets. While these men and women worked, an ever-growing throng of people clustered at a safe distance to watch, keeping to the cordons that separated the work areas from the audience. On the border between them was set up a booth beset with microphones and speakers, an extremely eager looking young man in an oil stained work jumpsuit sitting besides a rather nervous looking young woman with glasses in the same.

    “Centuries ago, three men had a dream!” the young man bellowed to the audience, all but jamming the microphone in his hand to his mouth. “To create an arena where engineers and inventors would create fantastic new devices never before seen, dazzling the world with their creativity and innovation! Today, that dream is a reality in the founding of the Radium Stadium, th-”

    “Marv, it's just cargo-hold fifteen with some tables and chairs set up...”the young woman protested. The young man, Marv winced, glaring at her.

    “Jennifer, don't you ruin this for me.”

    “I'm just saying!” she said, putting up her hands.

    “Anyway, these three men will judge the worthiness of those who rise to challenge their mastery of engineering! These-”

    “I don't think this is how that show works anyway, it-”

    “Jennifer, shut up, I swear to God. Anyway, these men are here today to find out if among our modest engineering team...” Marv suddenly deepened his voice and gestured with his free hand over the work-arena. “...there might be an IRON ENGINEER!!!”

    Spot lights lit one by one on a series of three large pedestals, each with a cloaked figure standing on top of them.

    “Belthasar, Guru of Reason!” Marv bellowed as the ghostly guru threw off his cloak and took a deep bow to the audience, which went wild at the gesture.

    “Uh... Melchoir, Guru of Life!” Jennifer announced. The second pedestal lit up, Melchoir tossing off his cloak and raising his cane to thunderous applause.

    “Last but not least, the Man at the End of Time! Gaspar, Guru of Time!” Marv announced. The final pedestal lit up to reveal the last guru still in his cloak... somehow having fallen fast asleep while leaning on his cane. One of the crewmen hastily jogged over and tugged at his sleeve until he woke with a start.

    “Huh? OH! Right!” Gaspar murmured, throwing off the cloak and striking an over-dramatic pose. Marv and Jennifer winced in unison.

    “Now let's meet our challengers!” Marv said, sweeping his arm around to point at a large group of men and women in baggy gray mechanic suits. “They built the ships and guns that won the First, Second, and Third Alien Wars! They've slapped together psi-amps, they've put together plasma cannons, they've assembled the Avenger, they're X-COOOOOOOOOM!”

    The audience cheered as the group of engineers started to cheer back, clapping their hands together and smiling.

    “Ah... he's just a good old boy from a good old state,” Jennifer announced as the spotlights swiveled around to highlight a man in overalls, gloves, and a hard hat strumming a guitar. “He's unflappable and confident because he doesn't have problems, he SOLVES problems! He can built a teleporter from scrap metal in ten seconds or shoot the spy that tries to sap it in five, it's the BLU Engineer!!!”

    The hard-hatted builder rose to applause as he brought the guitar over his head and smashed it on the ground with a deafening yell. The audience applauded even louder at this, while Mr. Conagher merely took a bow and sat back down with a goofy grin.

    “They drink beer! They create inventions! They were originally just one man who used a gate to clone himself over NINE HUNDRED MILLION TIMES!” Marv intoned as the spotlights swung over a group of identical men, all with a half-empty mug of beer in their hands. “They're the GAAAAAAAAAAAV CLOOOOOOOOOOOOOONES!”

    The clones stood back, chugged the remaining beer in each mug and then smashed the empty mugs on the floor with a loud battle-cry.

    “Uh...

Whichever invention is the most impressive according to the judges wins!” Jennifer winced. “...and if the command crew finds out this is what we spent the 'unmarked' budget on, we're all going to lose...”

    “LET THE INVENTION COMMENCE!” Marv shrieked as the mass of engineers went to work under the watchful eye of the Gurus.

    “Each inventor will now approach the Gurus with their invention, explain, and demonstrate it,” Jennifer said into the microphone. Marv grinned and smashed a fist into his open palm.

    “And then they'll use them to BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF EACH OTHER!!!”

    “What?” Egon asked, looking up in confusion. “I wasn't told about that...”

    “X-COM is FIRST!” Marv shouted.

    “No, really, no one said anything about...” Egon protested, trailing off as the X-COM team guided out a smooth metal disc hovering above the floor at about one meter.

    “Having determined the flubber's primary function to be enabling of flight, we took an old Cyberdisc corpse and re-engineered it to use the flubber for its primary propulsion system. This freed up enough space on the interior to add another THREE heavy plasma cannon, plus a lattice-work of alloy-webbing that dramatically increases its durability in combat,” the presenting engineer patted the design. “We estimate just ONE of these can contain a Snakeman incursion with no backup. And as a bonus, its new flight system is rated high enough to keep pace with Interceptors, giving our boys in the air valuable backup when trying to down that pesky Terror-ship!”

    “Nice, nice...” Belthasar nodded. “I approve. Reminds me of the Blackbird. In the unstoppable engine of doom way.”

    “Well, I reckon that's mighty nice...” Engineer said, stepping forward, his thumbs in his belt. He walked over to his table, draped in a cloth. “But it's still got nothing on this little beauty...”

    The BLU Engineer yanked the cover off, revealing... a yellow hard hat with a few boxes and wires attached to it. With a big grin, he reached down and picked it up, pulling off his own hat and putting the new one on in its place.

    “Now, I get you old boys figured flight was a pretty big feature of the flubber and I agreed with you,” Engineer said as he began to float off the ground. “This here hat of mine uses the flubber to generate a directional levitating field that offers perfect maneuverability flight at decent speeds to whoever wears it.” Engineer grinned as he turned to face a four foot by four foot block of steel put out for raw materials. “But I didn't stop there.”

    The boxy sides of the hard hat fell away, twin multibarreled rotary guns sliding out and roaring to life, shredding the sides of the steel block until in the span of a few seconds, it was carved to resemble a metal replica of Texas.

    “I used minute amounts of the flubber to create these tiny rail-guns in the hat,”Engineer said, smiling at the Stadium's new statue. “Devastating firepower, and mind-linked to the wearer's brain for maximum accuracy.”

    “That's... something...” Melchoir hesitantly said, shooting a look at Gaspar, who just shrugged. The sound of slow clapping echoed across the Stadium.

    “Quaint,” the de-facto leader of the Gavs aboard the ship said, stepping forward. “...but prepare yourself for what my colleagues and I have created!”

    The Gavs massed and began rolling a large ten foot tall crate forward. The lead Gav gestured.

    “BEHOLD!” he shouted. The Gavs pulled the cover off, revealing a containment crate with a huge mass of green goo within, moving of its own accord and constantly changing shape.“THE FLUBBER SHOGGOTH!”

    The lead Gav turned to the others with a huge grin. “We used the analyzed data from the Elder-Thing vault with our own conjectures and data from previous experiments to synthesize an artificial life-form using the flubber as its basic structure! Our Flubber Shoggoth can assume any form, mimic any shape, alter its density at will... and it can FLY! Observe!”

    “You fool, what are you do-” Belthasar began to shout.

    The lead Gav made a motion and one of the other Gavs pulled a lever, popping open the top of the crate and allowing the monster to soar into the air above with an alien roar as it began to lash out with its pseudopods, grabbing BLU engineer and immediately tossing him into a newly created orifice as the X-COM Cyberdisc began pelting the monster with plasma bolts. The audience screamed and began running for the doors.

    “Well, I didn't actually make anything for combat...” Egon said, pulling off the cover from his table, revealing a large metal cube with more than a few moving parts. A green, glowing orb was barely visible at its core. Egon flipped a switch and the machine started to whir and hum as its parts spun to life. “I couldn't help but notice the sheer amount of energy put out by the flubber in its various other applications,” Egon noted. “So I developed this machine to tap that energy, effectively creating a desktop-sized power-plant capable of running a small city indefinitely, with no waste created or fuel expended.”

    A shower of sparks suddenly flew up from the device as arcs of electricity begin to cascade around the room. Egon nonchalantly ducks as most everyone begins to dive for cover, bolts of lightning striking everything nearby. An arc of lightning hit the Cyberdisc, causing it to shriek in protest and collapse to the ground, smoking. A shower of bolts struck the shoggoth and it emitted a high-pitched squeal before shuddering and melting into a sticky pile of protoplasm, dropping Engineer to the ground, coated in slime. The mercenary mechanic shakily got up, then fell over, a trembling hand pointing to the ceiling.

    “I'll see you fellers...” he murmured. “...at the respawn point. Uuuurgh....”

    The three Gurus poked their heads up from behind their pedestals and dusted themselves off.

    “Well, looks like no contest here. Egon, YOU are the IRON ENGINEER!” Melchior declared, raising his cane in salute as Gaspar did the same. Having no cane, Belthasar just made his way over to a blinking, slightly singed Egon and shook his hand.

    “...I guess the machine still needs some fine tuning,” he murmured as he looked over the devastated Stadium.

    When /tg/ first became aware of Saph, we realized that this was an opportunity for unprecedented levels of trolling. /tg/'s masterful minds created a sue-stomping badass by the name of Johniass Dragonraper. He was given a sword made from pure stan (Saph's sword is made from stanless steel, so the idea was that it was weak to stan). Then an awesome writefag put out the epic tale about the battle between Saph and Johniass. The dragon-sue was humiliated and broken, and there was much rejoicing. There were a few stories after that but they sucked.

    1. High Command doesn't like us. I suspect it could also be a setup by them to get rid of us.

    2.The Shipper Union, by principle, is deluded. Furthermore there's no distortions given off by these people, according to the readings AND the Farseers.

    Suppose you discover that Saph and El turn out to be normal, what then?

    Well, by definition they ain't normal.
    But yeah, I proposed a similar concern regarding which canon is what.

    Also, we still need to figure out what the canon of /this/ world is. It looks like the book is the distortion giving these idiots access to their fantasy world, but that book isn't a part of any of the canons- so where did it come from? Caused by the linchpin? Or dropped off by some other force?

    Stranger yet, what if their freakish creations went SUE, and punched a hole into this reality to kidnap their players?

    *Saph and El explode*

    >>You killed them, but they weren't the SUEs. Fission Mailed.

    raidah: At least we killed something with a lot of firepower!

    Well, on this mission at least, we can head back and ask Holtz if the bounty is real. We'd also need to ask what happens if we were to kill them. If that is their natural canon, would it collapse? Would it cause a bigger problem than letting them live?

    Since we have nothing on the AUH, we can ask Pellaeon to go back and inquire with Holtz.

    For one, the Farseers didn't say that they detected no reality distortion from the S.U.E.'s, only that they weren't currently in the world.
    Two, since they've passed a dimensional boundary, the Storm's sensors haven't gotten a scan of them, meaning that your assertation that they aren't producing a reality distortion to be pure bullshit.
    Third, the Shipper Union is mercenary, not deluded, regardless of the thoughts and fantasies of its individual members. They go and grab people and things for their clients, and are paid well for it.

    We cant go back to base until those 'security audits' are completed, as we've been making reality disruptors and doing other reality-emitter stuff, and there's a good chance that ANON and possibly other systems will communicate with the bases systems, possibly as a matter of routine, to do things like provide ANON with the latest intel and send logs and other data for transmission to high command.

    My vote is we don't return to base until we are sure we've found any backdoors and other hidden stuff in our ships, and 'proofread' our logs

    We don't send the Storm back, obviously. We send back the AUH because nobody and nothing essential except Pellaeon is on it.

    What? We haven't done any more research, and we were never told not to _make_ anything, just to discontinue the research.

    That is a better idea, but we should finish auditing it first, in any case, we should ask our tech experts (Mouse, Data, etc) for advice on this before we take any action.
