LAST TIME ON GUNDAM AGE QUEST: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24884201/Your name is Jake Crocker and its five days away from your planned assault on the Vagan Space Fortress Ambat. Everything is going to plan, the pirates are on your side, you’ve finished many deadly new weapons and your troops and ships are almost finished getting upgraded. Getting sick of messing with guns and mobile suits for a change, you decided to go and visit Mellis to check up on her. You have just finished taking her on a spin in your Gundam after looking at the stars and chatting for quite a while. Now it’s time to get some grub, but what would be a good place to eat?What do you want to do Jake?
Wherever she'd like to go. Maybe that cafe again where we went the first time.Or, if she wants to go to the lake, we grit our teeth and say fine. It is time we confront our hydrophobia.
>>24901025See what Melis wants. She's been stuck with hospital food for a week, again. Let her decide.
Have Ma G find the place with the greasiest food and head there.Nothing is as fun as eating greasy food with a friend.
>>24901197>>24901085"Mellis, you've been the one eating hospital food all week, how about you pick where we eat?""Hmmm, I'm in the mood for something horrible and artery clogging. Let's go to that fast food place, Burger Planet." You re-enter the colony the Research Facility is based out of and walk through the the streets, clogging up traffic as you go make your way to the drive through window of Burger Planet."Welcome to Burger Planet, May I take your order?" One of the underpaid staff members asks through the drive-through speaker."I'll have 3 Cosmic Burgers, a 2 things of fries, a box of chicken nuggets and an iced coffee" Mellis says gleefully."Anything else?" Well Jake?
>>24901712"Gimme the same. Just place the order in the hand of the mobile suit."
>>24901712Do they make drive-thru lines for MS? HAHAHA.>>24901750Seconding this. I wish I could see the look on the staff's faces.
>>24901750>>24901808>"Gimme the same. Just place the order in the hand of the mobile suit.""Huh? Sure whatever..." The voice through the drive through speaker says with doubt in their voice.You walk up to the drive through and kneel your Gundam down. Hoping into the hand you have Mellis lower it to the drive through window."That'll be 43.96 Credits would you like nap-" The drive through attendant stops midsentance and stares at the crusader-black mobile suit standing outside of the drive through, you standing in it's now lowered hand."Yes, I'd like Napkins. Could I have some salt and ketchup?" "Ugh, Hmmmm, OK?" The attendant leaves and gets you what you want. He's almost surprised when you pay, as if he expected you to rob the drive thru with your mobile suit. Once you leave the attendant tells his manager. "Well it is a Drive-thru, we didn't really specify with what..." He scratches he chin, wondering if he could pitch this as a new gimmick. Climbing back into your mobile suit, you enter back into traffic, horns blaring as you do so. "Where would be a nice place to eat? Maybe a park or something?" Mellis suggests.Well Jake?
>>24901952"Tonight, whatever you say, goes. I'm just your chauffeur, milady."Why can't I stop imagining a giant drive-thru in space with space truckers and mobile suits? That'd be totally awesome.
>>24902006Convert Ambat into a space truck stop?
>>24902050Ambat should be converted into a giant Space Las Vegas.This should be more something smaller, perhaps a retired battleship or something made from scrap by the pirates.
Don't suppose there's a drive-in theater.
>>24902249YES. We need to do this with the Crusader.
>>24901952Find a place with a good view and eat on top of Ma G.
>>24901952Drive-in theater if possible. Park if not.
>>24902249>>24902006>>24902521"How about a drive-in theater?" You suggest."Ooh! Good idea, too bad it's not dark out..." Mellis sights, but shrugs. "We can do that after Ambat. To the park it is!" Mellis declares and you take her there in your Gundam. You find a rather nice one with plenty of trees, grass and even a little play/picnic ground.You march your Gundam to the edge of the Park and kneel down, helping Mellis out along with the food. Once everyone and everything is out of the Gundam, Mellis picks out a nice picnic bench to set up on, right in the view of the park.Quickly the two of you begin to take out and dig into your foods.What would you like to talk about with Mellis?
>>24902621(Damn it, I meant this pic)
>>24902621Ask her how she feels about Desil.
>>24902621Ask her how's she's feeling, how her folks are and so on. I guess they're too busy to come over and visit her / kick our ass for not taking proper care of her.After that, tell her about Desil and all this shit going on. We haven't told her anything about Vagan and the plan of the attack on Ambat.
>>24902621Get her up to speed on all the stuff that's happened since the last time we met up with her. Like the kidnapping and the pirate base and the Black Raven.The last one sounds almost like a name straight out of one of our "LARPs", come to think of it.
>>24902621Asking for her help to learn how-to swim after Ambat. (Mellis and Disil can bond over our terror.)If she asks why now, then we tell her about Disil.
>>24902707>>24902765>>24902841>>24902975>Ask her how's she's feeling, how her folks are and so on. "My Aunt and Uncle are losing their their minds over what's happened and me 'running away'. They don't believe a word I've told them, but their glad to hear I'm safe and you've been nowhere near me" Mellis says, biting into her hamburger."Really? Why do they have such an issue with me anyway?" You ask."Remember that time you and I were playing Seige Fortress between our yards?" Mellis asks."Oh yeah! I remember building that really good catapult that actually launched and entire motor into...oh" "Yep. Apparently having engine blocks launched into their bedroom at 6:00 AM has apparently left a bad impression on them" Mellis grins. "I thought it was pretty fucking funny" >Get her up to speed on all the stuff that's happened since the last time we met up with her."...and that's how to I beat the Black Raven" You finish, holding your french fries up in an ever so dramatic fashion."Black Raven? Someone needs to find a new penchant if your fighting someone named that." Mellis warns."What? No way! I picked Black Devil first!""Well if this person has been around since the Colony Nation Wars, he or she picked it waaaaaaaay before you.""Screw them! Where does it say a rival can't have the same colony scheme or name?" "Probably somewhere on NetTropes.""Everything is on NetTropes Mellis, that doesn't count. Besides, Black Devil sounds a lot cooler. I'm keeping it." You cross your arms and produce a mock pout, making Mellis laugh out loud."I was just messing with you, I'd never ask you to change your Nickname">>24902975>Asking for her help to learn how-to swim after Ambat. (Mellis and Disil can bond over our terror.) If she asks why now, then we tell her about Disil.(cont)
>>24903204"You want me to help you learn how to swim once you come back? Why are you asking now? Didn't you make a blood oath to never swim?" Mellis raises an eyebrow, wondering if your not some kind of alien impostor wearing Jake flesh."Well I made a promise to someone. You know that kid, Desil? Well he's not all that bad. He didn't really mean any of the crap he did, he didn't know any better. He was a child soldier Mellis and I managed to find a home for him and I think I'm on my way to giving him a childhood so...do you think you could forgive him?" Mellis frowns, letting out a sigh and thinking for a few moments. "He shaved my head and put me into the situation I'm in now. If he was any older I would probably say no...but he's only seven. If you can put a car engine block through the side of my house at seven years old, I'm sure Desil can turn his life around. Besides, I think we'll both laugh our asses off when you break out the water wings""There called miniature life preserves damn it!" You say in sheer denial, quite happy and terrified at her awnser.You and Mellis are just about finished with your food, Mellis taking some of your due to her sheer hunger.What do you want to do now? Anything else you'd like to talk about?
>>24903290What time is it right now?
>>24903290Ask how she feels about the Vagans, and what she thinks should be done with them. After that it's time to take her back.
>>24903290"So... You have any ideas on what I could make for the following battle? You were the mad genius girl whenever we played as kids.""And you have any plans what we could do after this is all over? I guess I'm going to join the military while you're going back to school to swoon over that jerkass you like."I kinda want to upgrade that Chimera cowl we made with additional beam sabers / DODS vulcans in the legs, so we can go capoeira with guns and lightsabers on some Vagan ass.
>>24903326Seconding this. We can plot to conquer the solar system after Ambat.
>>24903318It's about 4:00 PM, still relatively early.>>24903326"How do you feel about the Vagans? You know the Martian Colonists who kidnapped you and want to kill...well, everyone apparently" "I think they're a bunch of lunatics who are probably not going to stop what they're doing until something big happens.""Big?" You ask."Big as in they kill everyone, The Federation Kills them, everyone kills each other or you get off your ass and do something about it." Mellis states."Hey I'm working on it. Trying to take over the entire galaxy takes time, it's not as easy as it was when we were kids.""Wait, you aren't using what we did as kids as a basis for your plans, right?"You look side to side. "...No?" After a little more discussion you take Mellis back to the lab where you run into Dr. Spriggan. "Hello Jake, could I talk to you for a few moments?"Well Jake? What do you want to do?
>>24904012"Sure thing doc. It's about that hair thing we talked about, right? She's going to bald forever?"
>>24904012"Sure thing Doc, what do you need?"Make sure we pick Mellis up in a hug and give her a kiss before we leave.
>>24903355I'd love to have a design based off the Aegis but with the dual-purpose beam emitters. But now's not the time to talk about that. We're having a nice meal with our lady friend.We should ask her about her plans for once this is over, though. This is a big life-changing event for all of us. It's hard to just go back to school after you've been kidnapped and experimented on.
>>24904113Don't get fresh now. I mean, we wouldn't want all the progress we made go down the drain because we took things too far.A simple hug is fine for now. We save the kiss for when the time is right and the two of us are alone.
>>24904044Seconding this. Some humor will be good for her, and it will make the inevitable despair more easy to take.
>>24904044>"Sure thing doc. It's about that hair thing we talked about, right? She's going to bald forever?""Like you should talk Mr. Butthair!""Hey! It's not butt hair, it's just very low backhair. I've told you this a thousand times""Ummm, No...I'd actually like to talk to you in my Office." You give Mellis a hug and wave her goodbye as she returns to her room. >>24904135You make a mental note to talk about future plans later and proceed into Dr. Spriggan's office."I've got good news and bad news. Which do you want first?"
>>24904308Bad news first.
>>24904308Bad news. Let's get it out of the way now.
>>24904308Always the bad news first.
>>24904308bad news first.Hmm, let's completely fuck over canon. I can see it now: 20 years after the Battle of Ambat. The colonies are growing discontent with the bungling of the Federation and the attacks from the Vagan. Led by Jake Crocker, his wife Melis, and former rival and current mistress/co-wife Rysis, the colonies of Side 3 and Side 5 have seceded from the Federation. Using technology salvaged from the Vagan and pre-war Federation, they have gained dominance over local space. They seized control of several abandoned pre-war forts and renamed them: Solomon, Pezun, Axis, and A Baoa Qu. Their new government: the Repubic of Zeon. The year is A.G. 140.
>>24904368I'd rather not be sandwiched between the other two factions. My ideal location for any third side we form would be either the Trojan asteroids or Jupiter itself. We'll go full Jovian Chronicles on this setting.
>>24904368I'd rather work our way up the EFF then start a coup d'état, and expose there crimes.And no, Mellis!Jake OTP.
>>24904405I'd rather just nuke Second Moon during Gen 2 and be done with it.Too bad we don't get Genocide-Flit the way things are going now.
>>24904308bad news first
>>24904452No Melis/Jake/Rysis OT3? Gotta toss the OT3 idea over to Flit, Yurin, and Emily, if only for the reactions.
>>24904320>>24904332>>24904364"Bad news first doc""Mellis is gonna be dead by the next in a week or so. We've done our best with the implants and if shit hit's the fan I'm probably going to have to try and modify them not knowing what the fuck I'm doing. Unless you can get me the data on her implants""Shit doc that's the bad news? What's the good news then?""Oh I sent your buddy Flit the data we got from Mellis, he says it's helped him make a jump in developing Bit weapons or something. I know it's not much considering everything, but at least it's not all bad..."Your reaction Jake?
>>24904368I don't know, I'm for using the dataminer we made on the Feds first. We get to both test it and have enough blackmail for them to do whatever we want.We get Grodek out of the prison, he joins Blackmarsh and they form the new pirate faction. The Armstrong gets permission to do whatever it wants as it serves as a "independent research ship", and we go full pre-war tech. Turn the Armstrong into the fucking Harbinger. We save the noncombatants of Ambat and they begin to doubt their leaders, and talks about peace with the Earthlings begin to pop out. Some Vagans separate themselves led by reformed Desil. Flit becomes the savior he wanted to be, and tries to reform the Federation. Rebellions everywhere.Then an army of sentient pre-war machines pops out and starts shooting everyone.
>>24904503"Shit. Do your best, Doc. We're going after Ambat in a few days. That's where the Vagan did this to Melis. That's where I'll find that data. Just keep her alive."
>>24904503Slam the table. "The hell it is! How can you even say that? I will get you that data. I swear to Gundam."
>>24904503"Not really worth it to me. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. FUCK! We're going to Ambat soon, we can get the data from there, just keep her alive until then, whatever it takes. Would putting her in stasis or freezing buy us some time?"
>>24904503there's a Vagan outpost before Ambat maybe we can get some info there before the main battle.
>>24904503"Fuck. Thanks for everything. Just keep her safe, and I'll be back soon with the data you need."I guess we devote our time here to working like madmen and training our ass off with Dad and Woolf. Maybe we pull off that "don't think, feel" thingy that made Asemu so fucking awesome in a couple of days.
>>24904503"You've given her more time than she'd have otherwise. But it still might not be enough. The attack is in five days, and I'm not sure we can speed up the schedule any. We've got three outposts to eliminate, then hit Ambat itself. It'll be cutting it pretty close. I'm not sure we could raid the fortress and get back to you with the files in time."Is there any way you and Mellis could come with us? Just pack up everything you'd need to do the surgery onto the Armstrong so that you'll be ready to operate immediately? I know that's asking a lot. But having you there when we're searching the facilities would at the very least help us figure out what we were looking at. Please, Dr. Spriggan. I can't lose her. Not like this."
>>24904503Panicking won't help her. Just increase the pace of preparation of the assault, and make sure the weapons are much stronger by the time of the fight.
>>24904503Take a deep breath and keep ourselves composed as best we can. Then say "Doctor Spriggan, Mellis is my best friend. We grew up together, and I don't think I can live with myself if I let anything happened to her. I'll get you that surgery data. I'll get it even if I have to make a clean sweep of every CPU the Vagan own. I'll stop at nothing to save her. Period. Thank you so much for all you've done so far, but you have to -promise- me, that you'll do absolutely everything in your power to fix what they did. I'll do my part, but then I'm depending on you.""Is cold sleep an option to stall for time?"
>>24904654seconding especially the cold sleep bit
>>24904575> "Shit. Do your best, Doc. We're going after Ambat in a few days. That's where the Vagan did this to Melis. That's where I'll find that data. Just keep her alive.">>24904654>"Is cold sleep an option to stall for time?""I'm sorry but not in this case. The brain is still active during cold sleep, not a whole lot, but enough that she'll still die from the implants during it. Don't worry about her dying before you get back though, I might be able to extend her life by a day or two with some ideas of mine, but don't be too late" "Fuck, well try to keep her kicking until I get back with the data""That's what I aim to do. I apologize if I'm so calm about all this I'm kind of high off my ass right now" Dr. Spriggan explains apologetically."Excuse me?" "Well I lost my breath strips in one of the labs and took what I thought were them when in fact I just took LSD. They should be kicking in right about now, so I apologize if I start to go loopy""Oh shit, are you gonna be OK?""Oh I'm fine, this happens more then you think, we used to do this all the time around Christmas. Could you close the elephant on your way out?"You leave Dr. Spriggan's with the information that Mellis is going to die unless you get that data and the fact you should never use breath strips you find lying around EVER. It's 5:00 PM now, what do you want to do Jake?
>>24904811Rage that the only person who can save out not-girlfriend took LSD at a time like this.
>>24904811This fills me with confidence about the upcoming surgery. Let's give Mellis a proper goodbye before we leave. Let her know we'll be back after we take out the Vagan and save the universe.
>>24904811Back to work, I guess. Ask dad and Woolf for some training.Maybe insert those beam sabers / vulcans into the legs of the Chimera.>>24904855We're going to spend that Victory party with her, don't worry.
>>24904811Find Flit and get the bit data from him. Proceed down the bits tech tree until we achieve bits with generators.
>>24904811give him a "are you kidding me?" look and let's go see Mellis for a proper goodbye, then go see if we can help others with preparations
>>24904811Plan for integration training. We've got a lot of people not used to working together. Let's try to iron out some of the worst wrinkles.
>>24904852>>24904855The fact Dr. Spriggan mixed up LSD and breath strips disturbs you, but he seems like an OK guy even if he's a little weird, as in weird for you.>>24905001Integration training sounds like a good idea, especially with everyone and everything you have planned but where are you going to get that kind of training? Grodek hates the Vagan with a firey passion and couldn't give a damn less about integration. Any ideas?
>>24905126Team battles with the teams being switched up every other battle. This allows them to learn how to work together with other groups.
>>24905126A few combat sparring sessions ought to do the trick.
>>24905193>>24905212(Oh I thought you guys meant a different type of integration training)You make a note to start that when you get back to the Armstrong as well as to bug Flit for that Bit data so you can get the stupid pieces of crap to work for once. Anything you want to do before leaving the colony? You only have five days left to proper are it's already 5:00 PM, wasting an hour coming back her would be a bad idea.
>>24905193Agreed. Four teams, playing 2 vs 2. Each team switches once per match.That way, we all get to know each other and how we work. After that, compile all the combat data that could be useful.Also, did we send over all those upgrades to the Fardain and the Pirates?I had an idea about creating an improved targeting system based on that custom OS we made for the troops.
>>24905290Ask if they've done any research on allowing humans to withstand higher Gs.
>>24905307Has Jake sent the fire-control updates to the other ships yet?
>>24905348I think he only sent them the data for the beam cloths. The rest was sent to Flit.Anyway, I was thinking about linking multiple individual targeting systems. Each MS has its own targeting system and radar, right?The idea is that all nearby suits share this data, and based on that, better calculate where the enemy is and how he's moving, increasing their accuracy.Kinda like a hive mind of targeting computers.
>>24905348Oh you gave those details to Madorna and the guys with your ship upgrades. It's nice when you don't have to do everything yourself for a change.>>24905333You go around to the researchers who aren't high off their asses on LSD and talk to them about anything that could be be done to increase a human being's G-Force resistance.The general consensus, nothing to do with the brain anyway. Sometimes a person can increase their G-Force resistance through training or just natural persistence, however they say that with the right surgical, genetic or possibly cybernetic modifications they could withstand a lot more then a regular person could, of course the guy you heard that from was half-asleep and drinking from the coffee pot so your not sure how reliable that info is.>>24905307>>24905519The MX3 OS had nothing to do with targeting, it just allowed more unpredictable, faster movement by allowing the pilots to interrupt the existing movement macro's mid-operation for faster reactions and less interference from the machine itself.The computer-link targeting systems is a good idea, but they'd have to be very close for it to work, unless you want the suits to be throwing off signals enemies can pick up and home in on.Anything else Jake?
>>24905557Yes, I was thinking about them being close for it to work. They're going to attack in squads, so each squad should be linked together, not all the troops on the battlefield at once.Maybe we even create a proximity trigger - if a friendly unit gets close enough, they get linked and share that data. If the unit leaves the group, the link is broken.
>>24905557Nothing I can think of. Time to head back to the colony.
>>24905557>Sometimes a person can increase their G-Force resistance through training or just natural persistence[X] Find Mask.[X] Attach godly verniers.[X] Repaint Gundam white.[X] Attach red Roman helmet crest.[X] Call yourself Zech Merquise.[X] Pilot at LUDICROUS SPEED until you stop spitting out blood.
>>24905557Do they have something to disable X-Rounders? Maybe some frequency that'd stop their precognition powers.
>>24905557Do Gundam pilot suits act like real-life pilot suits? Half the time, you don't see Gundam pilots wearing suits. Real-life combat pilots, on the other hand, always wear suits because the suits are made to increase G-force tolerance. If we don't have G-force suits, we need to make them somehow.
>>24905705We hardly know anything bout X-rounders and that is some data we can look into at the Ambat Invasion.The More X-Rounder Data we get the more we can develop X-Rounder/Anti-X Rounder Tech
>>24905686I second the piloting at ludicrous speed plan.
>>24905686Going into plaid?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mk7VWcuVOf0
>>24905686Jake doesn't need a mask, he's made of MANLY. He's probably going to do it with only his chesthair to protect him.
>>24905730For the most part, but your using a stock pilot suit. If you want to have a heavy duty G-Force resistant suit you'll probably want to make a custom one. Of course there's only so much you can do to resist G-Forces, I mean the Black Raven was moving at speeds that would literally kill you, like Raspberry Jello Jake kind of kill.You decide to go back to the ship to get some work done and probably get some training in. Bits, Training, then party until...well until something happens.(cont)
>>24906131You leave the colony without any issues, outside of some asshole cop giving you a parking ticket, a fucking parking ticket on your mobile suit, and manage to make it back to the Armstrong after an hour of flying. Liz and the other engineers are busy as hell with the work on the Diva and Armstrong, which is nearly finished. It’s 6:00 PM, Dad, Woolf and the other pilots are all out practicing. Flit is busy monitoring Largan’s test run of the newly modified AGE-1.2, but has already sent you the data to your laptop. You notice while getting the data that you have received a reply from Dr. Jones.So what do you want to do? Bits, Training, or Dr. Jones Email?
>>24906275Check out the email first. Maybe we could send them that gun we found? Who knows, if we get good with the historical society, they might lend us some old blueprints.After that, training.Also, could we start up that data miner on some Federation network? We could dig out something useful.
>>24906275Read the email while heading out to practice. No reason we can't multitask.
>>24906275E-mail, then Bits.
>>24906275E-mail first then lets get Carlos those bits.
>>24906320just watch us crash into something because we are doing so
Gentlemen how do we kill the Black Raven?
>>24906796However we do it, it's going to take years of rivalry for us to defeat her.After that, we'll befriend her because we're Jake Fucking Crocker.
>>24906796Several orgasms later if Mellis doesn't make it.
>>24906310Your could send the gun via speed-shuttle, but the postage would be around 30 credits, you still got 50 left over after everything.>>24906332>>24906372You read the email:Dear sir or madame or whoever the hell you are."I don't know what scrawny crackpot federation agent allowed you to take that Gundam but I'll have you know your not keeping it. It's a 115 year old relic of the past that I and several of my colleagues and I spent years searching for and most of our life's savings restoring.it! I expect to hear a reply back from you soon and I hope you haven't destroyed or altered the Gundam in any meaningful way..."Signed Dr. Jones."Well fuck, maybe he'll be happy with this hard drive dairy and all the shit I pulled off MID."What is your reply Jake?
>>24906796We don't. Instead we eventually join her after getting fed up with the Federation. Gather support from the colonies and moderates in the Vagan and form our own side. Turn from Jake/Melis OTP to Jake/Melis/Rysis OT3.
>>24906923Word from quest threads general! In your email!
>>24906923>Signed Dr. Jones.awe shit Indiana Jones is coming after us now
>>24906923I don't think Jake has actually modified the Crusader. He just made a bunch of equipment packs and new weapons to use instead of modding the Crusader itself. Send the diary.
>>24906923Assure him that he will have it back and then proceed to make an nonfunctional scale replica of the Gundam to send back.
>>24906923"The Gundam has been restored and resigned to active military duty by orders of the Big Ring. All complaints should be sent to them, instead of the pilot.""As minor compensation for your trouble, we forward you this databank from a derelict ship found in the Graveyard.""All future archaeological finds by the restored Gundam will be forwarded to you. Expect a well preserved custom rifle and a preserved pilot from the Colony Wars soon.""After the mission is completed, the Gundam will be sent back to you."Then, when we have time, create a copy of the original Gundam and send it back.
>>24906974... We also painted it.
>>24907008>preserved pilotWe are not selling out Mr. Touchdown, and we still haven't analyzed the rifle. Who knows what crazy weapons we can develop with that information.
>>24906923"Sorry about commandeering the Gundam, busy saving humanity with it, didn't really have a choice. I've made some upgrades and attachments, it's what the Asunos would have wanted. It's a Gundam, while it is a relic of the past it would not be happy sitting in a museum, its raison d'etre is to protect people from harm, to inspire them directly, not to sit in a museum, and it is needed once again. I've talked to the AI in it, I don't think she'd be happy in a museum when there is a war going on and the Gundam is needed.I gave it a paint job, it looks even cooler now. Also, I found a pile of stuff on the pilot that you might be interested in."

>>24907079He's not going to fall for that. He probably spent years studying this thing, and there are some things you can't replicate with the AGE builder, like the Copy AGE-1 couldn't be fully replicated.
>>24906943(A reply has been sent, thank you) >>24907036"Sorry about commandeering the Gundam, busy saving humanity with it, didn't really have a choice. I've made some upgrades and attachments, it's what the Asunos would have wanted. It's a Gundam, while it is a relic of the past it would not be happy sitting in a museum, its raison d'etre is to protect people from harm, to inspire them directly, not to sit in a museum, and it is needed once again. I've talked to the AI in it, I don't think she'd be happy in a museum when there is a war going on and the Gundam is needed. I gave it a paint job, it looks even cooler now. Also, I found a pile of stuff on the pilot that you might be interested in. I'm forwarding you everything I found, save for a cryostasis pod containing a Pre-AGE pilot. I'm sure you'll be satisfied with what you see. I'm afraid I won't be sending the Gundam back, but perhaps we can work out a deal?"You send the email, it'll probably be a while before you get a reply.Work on Carlo's bits or do something else? What do you wish to do Jake?

Can't give all the good stuff away. >>24907190>>24907175You still have a very, very, very crude understanding of Bit Technology but you might be able to do something with the data you have. First let's see if you can make it so Carlo's suit can have Bits in the first place.(roll 1d100 vs Engineering. 60 or below succeeds. 1 is a critical success and 100 is a critical failure, as a rule I'll only be counting the first 5 rolls)
>>24907249No Zeonquest here. Jake might turn out like Lister, though, with the way things have been going.>>24907155Work on the bits. Jake could use the experience with bits for when he tools up the Farsia for Melis and if he gets around to making incoms for himself.

>>24907370LARPer finds himself in a Gundam, teaches Vagans about gravity, derails AGE's plot into shonen.
Rolled 80>>24907370We are currently making and upgrading as many weapons as possible before a combined assault against a Vagan fortress. In one weeks time the Vagans, actually human colonists who are attempting to kill all Earthlings, will help us field test all the new weaponry.
>>24907370We've taken Gundam AGE, derailed the plot so much that it isn't even funny, turned one of the main bad guys into our little bro, and injected raw hot-blooded action and engineering into it.
>>24907370(I'll give you the general run down. Basically your playing a 15 year old with a penchant for LARPing and a love of mobile suits who got forced into hunting down the mutineer Grodek Ainoa under the threat of going to jail along with his dad after he found a the restored original Gundam in a museum and kicked some pirate/terrorist ass. However now we're helping said mutineer to destroy the U.E. Fortress Ambat under the promise Grodek will turn himself in once it's done. Along the way we captured Desil and turned him to our side, saved Yurin, got our girlfriend kidnapped and turned into an Artificial X-Rounder who is slowly dying and found out the U.E. Aren't actually aliens but pissed off Martian Colonists who the Federation tried to kill after they found out they weren't all dead. We're five days away from invading the Fortress and are making some last minute weapons/modifications)

Meanwhile, we turned a psycho killer kid into our little bro, saved our not-girlfriend in such a way that Top Gun would call us cheesy, and prepared for the attack on the Martian space fortress.

>>24907540>So G Gundam mixed with some UC?Kind of. AGE was always in a weird sort of hybrid state in between Real Robot tropes and Super Robot tropes. We've been trying to stabilize it, and maintain both the cool political stuff and the over the top action and drama. It's worked pretty well so far, in large part due to Crosswire doing some excellent world building based on what little the series showed us.>What do we have in terms of Suits, pilots, and what kind of ordinance do we have?The list goes on an on. We've got two Gundams and a large number of grunt suits with varying levels of customization. We've got the AGE Builder, which means we can reverse engineer and modify just about any tech we get our hands on. Crosswire is working on some tech trees, but for now it would be easier to look at the pages on the Gundam wiki for the following mobile suits and extrapolate what we can do from there: Gafran, Zedas, Farsia, Genoace, G-Exes, Shalldoll, Shalldoll Madorna Custom, AGE-1, AGE-1 Titus, AGE-1 Spallow, AGE-1 Beelzerga, AGE-1 Brocka, AGE-1 Goliath, and AGE-1 Badran. In terms of pilots, we have: Flit Asuno, protagonist of the first arc in AGE; Woolf Enneacle, Flit's mentor figure and wing man; Largan Drace, perennial second-stringer of the Diva crew; Jack Crocker, a Federation ace who is a friend to Woolf and our dad; Jake Crocker(us), a badass in development who is personally responsible for shifting the setting at least three notches hopeward on the scale of Cynicism vs Idealism; Carlos, X-Rounder and horrible punster; Arnold; hypochondriac sniper; Tim, support character with few distinguishing characteristics; Ralphie, a brawler-style pilot who we haven't really interacted with much; and an assortment of nameless grunt pilots recruited from Euba, Zalam, and the Blackmarsh pirates.
>>24907703Our current rival, all of our former rival-type characters we've either befriended or killed rather quickly, has an absurdly fast custom Mobile Suit called the Black Raven, it accelerates and changes directions at G-Forces that would turn a normal pilot into goop.
>>24907797Speaking of which, did we manage to make wings for Ma G?
>>24907821No. It turns out that the level of complexity the Raven Feathers (a name which I have arbitrarily chosen for the armor scale/ fuel pod system) requires is beyond the AGE Builder. Crosswire did say we could probably use the AGE Builder to produce a custom one-off machine that can make the system, though not in time for it to be usable at Ambat.
>>24907776Just realized I forgot something on the unit list for reverse engineering. We have the AGE-1 Swordia, too. Though in this quest it's been retconned as being the result of reverse engineering from the Crusader Gundam, instead of an original AGE Builder creation.
>>24907703(We're just waiting on last minute modifications to the Diva and the Armstrong)>>24907690You grab some hot joe and get to the bridge, seeing 3 Federation Darwin-Class ships sitting right in front of the docks that currently hold all of your forces."Captain, one of the ships is hailing us!" Dorthy Ann relays."Put it up on the main screen" Captain Frizzle orders."This Stoller Guavaran of the EFF 8th Space Fleet Special Detachment. We are here to arrest the mutineer Grodek Ainoa. If I understand correctly the Armstrong is supposed to be here to capture Grodek as well. Explain why you and the Diva have been docked her in this colony for nearly two weeks!" Stroller bites into a candy bar, Genoaces Deploying from the Darwin Class ships."We have Grodek in our custody, but he has a plan to attack the U.E. Fortress known as Ambat. We also have come across more information about the U.E that they're re-""I do not care about the U.E. Your mission was to detain and arrest Grodek, you have obviously gone against orders. We do not let mutineers off so easily. Prepare to be boarded" Stroller cuts off communications.What will you do Jake? Anything to suggest?
>>24907925I believe a counter boarding is in order. Deploy the virus.
>>24907925Releaase the virus. Hell, release the pirates, if possible.
>>24907948Hell, deploy the Arthur!
>>24907925"Listen here you fucking fatass son of a bitch, We have information on the UE And if you don't listen Prepare for counter boarding and we WILL Fire on your worthless ass!"
>>24907776Sounds like we're assaulting Solomon except we don't have enough mirrors to cook the thing. Unless our AGE machine can start shitting those things in four days.Do we have a way of rounding up anymore suits, ships and pilots?>>24907797He sounds like a hybrid of Graham Aker and Zechs. I like him.
>>24907998It's a her.
>>24907925"MaG, prepare the virus, just in case. I wouldn't like to get us into any bigger trouble than we're already in.""Also, call Hogan, tell him we'd need a possible distraction on Captain's signal. And the Zuerba or whatever their name is.""They should probably hide behind those solar panels.""Stoller Guavaran... I know that name... Dad, isn't that the by-the-book douche you went to military school with?"
>>24907925"With all due respect to the authority of the Federation navy, we outnumber their force considerably. Plus, we have Gundams and skilled pilots to man them. What exactly is to stop us from just demolishing them, aside from a reluctance to completely go mutineer? How do they plan on forcing us to comply?
>>24907925Shit. Open comms with one of the other ships and tell them that their commander is a blithering retard that's about to screw over a massive feet action?
Somebody remind him that this colony is not under Federation law.
>>24907998Our rival is a 21 year old hot cyborg chick who's been stuck in cryo for a century. We MIGHT be able to convince Stroller to help, but its a bit unlikely.
>>24907925"we were told to apprehend Grodek, we were never told when to bring him in."
>>24907925Look, I don't know who the hell you are, and I honestly don't care. We got bigger fish to fry and if you're not going to help up. Then we offer one of two options, Disablement, or Destruction."We got two gundams, a fleet of badass crazy psycho's you call washouts and rejects and Pirates. What the fucking hell do you have...fatass."
>>24908029"They expect us to surrender because if we don't the Federation will hunt us down Jake. I said I'd become a pirate if it was preferable to do so. The Federation doesn't allow anyone to stand against it Jake, if we become mutineers they will not let us remain free int he wind, they will hunt us down until we die, regardless of what it takes...unless those ships never get to tell the Federation about all this...Prepare to fire the Photon Blaster Cannon!" Captain Frizzle orders.Liz's face goes white at this. "We just had it installed!" she signs out. "We haven't gotten to test it yet!""Well now is the best time...""Isn't there something else we can do?" Your father asks."They have use pinned inside the hanger, this is going to end in blood one way or another and I refuse to stop after coming this far. I also refuse to become a fugitive..."Do you object to firing the Photon Blaster Cannon on the Fleet Jake?
>>24908116Object. Object loudly and strongly. You can't just kill a man for trying to do his job. Disable his ship only, don't kill the poor bastard.
>>24908116"Give me one chance to convince them to back the fuck off, I'd rather not have to kill them if it's not needed. He's just an idiot doing his job.Ma G, force open communications on their end, make them listen to me."
>>24908116"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's all calm down, this can only end badly if we try anything like that.""Can we talk this through?"
>>24908116"Target the bridge!"
>>24907998Yeah, a bit like Solomon. Instead of a Solar Flare System, our 2 battleships have main guns like the fucking Yamato. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q28zefJcT6k and go to 7:20.>>24908116Object. Bitch out the Feddies. If they ignore a warning about an UE fortress and invasion force, then they're traitors to humanity.
>>24908198Agreed. Let's bitch at them after we calm Frizzle down. And wait for the Vagan to show up.
>>24908116Am I the only one who wants to see how effective our canon is on federation forces
>>24908116That's jumping the gun. Object ver loudly something along the lines of "If we do that we're essentially telling the federation come and get us assholes." Direct our cannons and that of the fleets at them and suggest a meeting point between the two ships ask for someone other than that testosterone idiot to meet with us so we can breif them on what's going on.
>>24908116save that for last resort, stall Stoller by asking what he knows of mars birthday.
>>24908239See, the thing is they're not going to be listening to us anytime soon and we got other things to worry about, like Melis. I say cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war. Disable their coms and blast them to fucking hell.Dead men speak no tales
>>24908152>>24908166>>24908179"You can't kill him! He's just doing his job!" You object. "Let's talk this through, maybe he can be reasoned with...""Do you want to go to jail Jake? Because they know we've gone against our orders. If we disable them, all of us are going to be criminals when they get the info back to HQ. If we kill them now, no one will know, that or Grodek will be able to take the blame or are you prepared to be hunted the rest of your life? Grodek doesn't have any intention of escaping his punishment Jake. What about you? What are you willing to do?" Captain Frizzle demands."Photon Blaster Cannon has finished charging, Genoaces at 100 meters and closing..." Dorthy Announces.Well Jake? What will it be? Talk to Stroller and hope he doesn't turn you in, disable him and eventually let everyone find out your criminals, or kill him and his men and give yourself the chance to live as a free man.
>>24908287Talk to Stroller. Also, Frizzle fucking snapped under pressure.
>>24908287...fire. It took a full attack by the UE in canon to get him off Grodek's back that might not happen here. Stroller is NOT a reasonable man. Clear the path.
>24908287Fire the cannons!
>>24908265We can't afford a firefight and the chance of potentially wasting ships or resources. If we can get these three ships to calm the crap down we could even get them to join us, something we very desperately need.Plus our positron cnnon hasn't been tested if we fire this thing we're asking for something bad to happen.
>>24908329A fucking men. Aim for the bridge
>>24908337For all we know he's a vagan sympathizer.fucking obliterate him and lets scavenge the scrap for Second Generation Suits
>>24908337That, and we're still docked. If something goes wrong, and it will, we'll damage the colony and potentially kill everyone inside.Talk to the douche, we're Jake fucking Crocker. If we managed to talk a mad kid into becoming our friend, we'll pull this off as well.
I'm fine with a pirate's life for Jake. Only problem would be getting the families out of the Federation.
>>24908346It's a wave-motion cannon. Just point it in their general direction and they're fucked. Remember, it only takes one man reporting us in secret to fuck everyone over.
>>24908287Talk, Crosswire would use our 92 in language here?
>>24908372He doesn't know that the UE is the Vagan this guy sounds like some jackhole with a beam cannon erection who's too stupid to realize just how fucked he is. If we can get someone else to listen then we've got more support rather than taking our chances and potentially wrecking our ship and damaging a colony.
We talk this through with him. Buy us time till the Vagans get here and begin trashing the place.But get out in the Gundams, so we look ready to defend ourselves. In the end, he did let Grodek through without an incident.
Switching to Talk to the man, while in the Arthur.
Keep talking to the man, charge the positron cannon, if necessary, appeal to his lieutenants as well for an opportunity to get them to mutiny.
>>24908427Question is, WILL the Vagan attack us here. Grodek was found on the way to Ambat in canon, not still docked. There's also the issue of the Genoaces 100 meters from the ship. Would they stop? Would they blast the bridge? It could work, but its damn risky. Maybe bring in our allies to show we mean business? Just remember: a single asshole could fuck us over if Jake lets them live.
>>24908464This sounds like a good idea but let's go one step further, broadcast this to all three ships."Be advised we have a Positron Cannon directed at your fleet we do not wish to use this but if you continue to pursue us without hearing us out we will have no choice than to vaporize your battlegroup.
>>24908287"How is this any different than what will happen after Ambat? One way or another, the story will get out. We can be the heroes who defied orders for the sake of the common good, or we can be the ruthless mutineers who disregarded all bounds of decency. That's our choice."
>>24908515The better plan is to fire the canon and make on full speed to Ambat. Let the future generations of peace time judge our actions
>>24908405(No, Language: English is only for understanding dialects and uncommon words, you really haven't had to use that)>>24908314You bite your lower lip. "This isn't right Frizzle, we can't just kill him! He's on our side, lemme talk to him before we do anything."Frizzle shakes your head as you open the comms with Stroller."Listen to me! We're fighting humans! The U.E. are martian colonists from the Mars Birthday plan. The Federation left them there to die when they started getting sick. Then they sent ships to kill them off when they tried communicating with the Federation again. Don't you understand!? We started this, the Vagan want to kill us because of bullshit like this. We need to stop them here and now or else it's all over!"Stroller shakes his head. "Even if that is true, I can't let you go. If you go free to do what you wish then how many others will abandon the Federation? One colony, then three colonys, then all of them! That is how the Colony Nations War began, by mutineers and dissidents! How can we hope to defeat the Vagan if we are not united as the Federation? I cannot let you go with a clear mind. You are coming with us and if you kill us, your not better then the Va-" Suddenly there is a blinding light, the whole ship shakes as a massive blast of energy cuts through space, completely disintegrating the approaching Genoaces and the ships. When the blast ceases, there is nothing left of the ships."Captain, the Diva fired it's Photon Blaster Cannon..." Dorthy says, turning back to Frizzle."Grodek...you really do intend to shoulder all the blame, don't you?"What is your reaction to this Jake?
>>24908560"Idiots, everybody is an idiot. The Vagan, us, the Federation, nobody is ever willing to listen to the others and it ends up with dead people on all the sides.FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!!"
>>24908560Our fate is sealed.
>>24908560What the clusterfuckingbullshithell was that?
>>24908560Tell Grodek he jumped the gun and he should have let us talk more before going kill crazy.
>>24908560"WHAT. THE. FUCK. GRODEK." "NOW WE'RE ALL GOING TO PAY BECAUSE OF YOU, YOU DUMB PIECE OF SHIT, YOU AND YOUR STUPID REVENGE.">>24908497Honestly, true, but I kinda doubt that the Vagan are going to give us two weeks of prep time. They attacked once, and right now, they'd find us with our pants around our ankles. And now, we're fucked either way.
>>24908560" I wish it didn't have to end this way. What's wrong with these people? Genocide, incompetence, greed, hate. Why can't they fucking learn!? You know what? Fuck the Federation. Fuck the Vagan. My priority is helping Melis and keeping my home and family safe. The Vagan and Feddies can burn."
>>24908625They tried a couple of days ago. Our forces slaughtered them. The Vagan have the upper hand in tech, but they're incredibly arrogant in the beginning. They won't take us truly serious until Jake levels Ambat.
>>24908560"well thats going to haunt me for the rest of my life, lets get this show on the road before something else gose wrong."
>>24908560Shit. That societal reform can't come soon enough. Time to start a propaganda war.
>>24908560"And how is that going to work? We're already guilty by association. It's going to get out after Ambat. What, are we just going to pretend that we showed up after the battle was already over? Because we're in too deep for that. How many people have seen us working with the Diva? Or maybe we'll say that he forced us along to help him. Because we certainly don't have the capabilities to oppose him, right? Getting out of this with no one knowing we went rogue is impossible. From the beginning, our only hope was to succeed and win the battle so spectacularly that the Federation couldn't punish us without political fallout. The only way out is through. All that this accomplished was needlessly killing soldiers just doing their job."
>>24908625thisthen >>24908732 then >>24908579 then >>24908641
>>24908784I want to ask Grodek what his family would think of him now that he's both a killer and a traitor. They must be so proud of him, now that he's no better than the Vagans he hates so much.
>>24908641"How are we going to get away now! We're fucked by association!" "Grodek does intend to take the blame for everything. The Federation loves it's scapegoats. As long as Ambat is gone and Grodek confesses to 'forcing' everyone to do his bidding, we'll all get off scott free. He'll probably get 20-30 years in prison, if I can get an entire fleet butchered and only get bumped down to Captain then why can't he get jail time over the death sentence?" Captain Frizzle states. "UGH! Idiots, everybody is an idiot. The Vagan, us, the Federation, nobody is ever willing to listen to the others and it ends up with dead people on all the sides.FUCK! FUCK! FUCK!!"" I wish it didn't have to end this way. What's wrong with people? Genocide, incompetence, greed, hate. Why can't they fucking learn!? You know what? Fuck the Federation. Fuck the Vagan. My priority is helping Melis and keeping my home and family safe. The Vagan and Feddies can burn." you grit your teeth and storm off the bridge. You don't know if you'll ever be able to forget that. Sure he was an arrogant ass but he obviously just wanted to protect the Federation and probably his family. What now Jake? It's 11:00 PM
>>24908832Go to MaG and bitch about everything. Probably talk with dad as well.
>>24908832go to sleep we need it.
>>24908832Go to Gundam, give her a hug, bitch about fucking everything, yell, scream, vent.
>>24908832Eat some ice cream and cry yourself to sleep
>>24908832Talk to Dad. Call Flit. He can't be doing any better than Jake is.
>>24908832Angrily start drawing up plans on the AGE Builder for a system of AGE-derived von Neumann machines. We will use them to singlehandedly create an infrastructure base so that we can someday lead a succession from the Federation. Because we're Jake Crocker. We don't sulk. We plan.
>>24908832Sit in Ma G and rant to her.
>>24908926'Zeon shall rise again!!!'
>>24908832Plan for Tomorrow talk to Flit (do we have a love interest? If so talk to her as well.)
>>24908975Mellis is our love interest more or less.
>>24908921You plan on going to bed, but decide call Dad and Flit hoping for some closure. "It's unfortunate, but I'm glad we don't have to go to jail. Your mother would never forgive me for ruining our lives...""Oh, so killing three crews of people is fine with you? Great, real great Dad" You hang up in anger and call Flit, hoping for someone to agree with you."Grodek did the right thing. We can't have anyone stop us." Your reaction Jake?
>>24909036Fuck it do what >>24908926 said. There'll be no sleep tonight.
>>24909036"FUUUUUUUUUCKKK EVERYTHING! I know how important it is, I just hate the whole situation we're put in. And we're struck the man doing his fucking job, and all of his men under him, innocent fucking men, instead of actually going after the root of the problem.I'm seriously fucking tempted to when we get done with the Vagan to march Gundam up to the buildings full of corrupt politicians and hold a sword over them, they're the problem, the ones who cause all of this stupid bullshit."
>>24909067looks like the gen 2 coup is coming early this time, and it won't be flit who initiates it.
>>24909036"Why am I the only one that has a problem with this?! How is destroying three ships in any way going to help our standing with the Federation? Is the Federation really such a corrupt and jaded society that we can get off of charges of mutiny and murder just by offering up a single man? Why is this the world we live in?!"
>>24909036You are very, very tired of this bullshit."'Everyone for themselves' seems to be a fine philosophy. Pity I can't take it, otherwise I would have to swallow my pride and beg Vagans to fix Melua. Dickbags.Fucking Stoller, too. 'How can we hope to defeat the Vagan if we are not united as the Federation?"Well, fuck you too buddy, the Feds created the fucking Vagan, and the dissidents.Sorry. I'm going to bed."
>>24909105I don't think there was ever any doubt that we'd lead a revolution at some point. This is just giving us a bit more incentive.
>>24909036"What the fuck is wrong with everybody?""We just killed three ships full of innocent people who only did their job. Men and women like us, and all you've got to say is 'we can't have anyone stop us'?""You know what, fuck it. We do this and I'm done with everyone. I just want to go back to fixing that server in my basement and pretend like nothing of this happened."
>>24909036"What. The. FUCK!? What the hell, man!? Damn it, we didn't even TRY to reason with them! I just can't let that go. I'd never be able to face Melis, Mom, Desil, or myself if I just wrote off hundreds of lives like that. What are we becoming, Flit?"
>>24909143This shit keeps up, and Jake's gonna colony drop the Vagan home onto Earth. If Melis dies, Jake's going full-on Char. And we all know how THAT will end...
>>24909278Well, Flit is experimenting with remote weapons and barrier systems. I'm sure he could make the Nu if he needed to.
>>24909306So Flit is going to be the final battle. Then what's the Black Raven going to be?
>>24909278Jake's going full Lordgenome if Mellis dies.We're talking about colony dropping EVERYTHING and ruling the ashes with an army of not-Geth Gundams.Anyway, once we're done talking, no sleep for us. We need to upgrade as much as we can.
>>24909351This shit's gone from a Possible G Gundam to fucking Zeta in 4 posts. Yeah, no sleep for Jake tonight...
I'm ashamed of you Flit. We can't write off innocrnt lives like our enemy or we become the. I think there were innocent people like you and me on that ship just doing thier jobs. Imagine the doctors, engineers and galley crew that did not mean us Any harm. we murdered them. I hope you csn live with yourself, because Yurin would be very disappointed in you if you could sleep easy after this.
>>24909351Yes yes all my internets YES>>24909397and thats our flag fuck yea
>>24909418Nah it needs more spirals.
>>24909203>"What. The. FUCK!? What the hell, man!? Damn it, we didn't even TRY to reason with them! I just can't let that go. I'd never be able to face Melis, Mom, Desil, or myself if I just wrote off hundreds of lives like that. What are we becoming, Flit?""I'm just trying to save the people I love!" Flit screams. "I'm sorry those people were killed, Grodek refused to let them stop us. I would have at least heard them out. What do you want me to say? That we should stop? That we should just give up and go home? No Jake. I'm sorry but I can't let that happen, not after this, not wih the deaths of those men on my mind, not after Mom, not after all the people the Vagan murdered on Nora! I know things are fucked up...but we can fix them. We can fix them together! So let's finish this and make it our job to purify the Federation! To stop the Vagan and create a peaceful future where this doesn't have to happen! What do you say Jake?"
It's damn hard to post with a mobile.Also, call Mellis and vent our pent up frustration and guilt to her.
>>24909397Summary for today's episode: Jake goes on a date, and we go from shounen to Zeta in 4 posts.
>>24909432>wanting to change the glorious flag of zeonno fuck youhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-22zHXNLF9Y
>>24909477"WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY?""We're in too deep. We have to do this now. We have to make all of this have some sort of meaning. All those lost lives and everything.""...or are we trapped in a never ending spiral of death and despair? Never mind, just thinking to myself out loud."
>>24909477"removing problem, but not cause.... will investigate alternative solutions." say it cold as fuck
Hah!We really are going to get Titans in the second gen.
>>24909477"I don't even fucking know anymore. I know we can't fucking stop, I know that we have to fucking do this. But I'm never going to fucking celebrate the fact that we killed 3 ships full of fucking people who were doing their job. Why did he have to be so fucking stupid?Is this all that's going to happen, we kill the Vagan because they want to kill us because we tried to kill them a long time ago. And then the Federation tries to take us out because we took these guys out and we have to fight the Federation more and no matter what there's never going to be a winner, just an unending cycle of fucking death. I want to make a better future, but it's hard to imagine one coming out of these days. It's really hard to even consider it possible."
>>24909581Titans? Fuck that son, We're full blown A-Laws
>>24909477I'll have no part of a future where people are killed because they're in the way.
>>24909545>>24909613Titan and A-Laws were zealots we're AUGE and celestial being.
>>24909638Are you crazy dude, we NEED Flit, we Need the Asuno Family on our side.
Anyway, who's for sending all that data about Vagans to all the news stations right now?We should probably send the transmission from a safe location and behind 7 proxies, but it's time to kick this revolution into overdrive.And screw both the Feds and the Vagan leaders in the process.
>>24909610"I don't even fucking know anymore. I know we can't fucking stop, I know that we have to fucking do this. But I'm never going to fucking celebrate the fact that we killed 3 ships full of fucking people who were doing their job. Why did he have to be so fucking stupid?

You think any of us like that we had to do that? Do you think I'll ever be the same after having to do that? Human beings are better people then you think! You've done so well up till now! You saved Desil, if you try hard enough you can do the same with everyone! Don't lose that hope that's carried you, no, carried all of us this far!"Well Jake?
>>24909658.... I approve>>249096727? Only 7, Hack every network we can and send it through every station, hell even the AGE Version of 4-Chan and other places, Imgur, Gamefaqs, Larp Sites, hell even the Reddit
Purify the Federation how? Through fire and blood. Death, murder, snd assassination? When does the killing stop Flit? Now that've killed three ships of people without provocation, when will we say enough? What will have to happen to make us stop? When we've conquered ambat? When we've wiped the Vagan from exsistance? When we've crushed Frederation with an iron fist, ripped the colonies into pieces, and shelled the Earth into slag so we can rule over the ashed?
>>24909477"Can we really change them, Flit? Do you honestly think we can change the Federation? Look around. Anyone who tries to do something either gets declared traitors like Grodek, shipped off like my crew, imprisoned, or 'MIA'ed. I'm not saying to let the Vagan win. I just think the Federation isn't the group to do it. We might get rid of the corruption. But, what if we BECOME it? I look at these people and think 'if I stay here too long, if I learn the system, I'll become part of it.' There's gotta be another way. And I will find it, because I'm Jake Fucking Croaker! I won't let them win, Flit. The Federation OR the Vagan..."
>>24909704It's getting real hard to have hope in humans, but at least there's always machines. They would never betray the ideals they know.
>>24909704"Thanks Flit I needed that."
>>24909704... I really don't know Flit, but if it has to be done, I would have you and your friends by my side.
>>24909704"I won't lose hope, I'm just pissed at everything and anything around me right now. And I'm not sure if the Federation can be part of a better future, but we'll burn that bridge when we come to it. We've got a civilization of psychopathic martians to fight first."
>>24909704"Heh. You're right. I almost lost my faith in the better future, even though it's really hard to see it right now.""It's tough, though. It's so fucking tough hoping for something better when all you can see is shit.""But you know what? We're gonna light a fire that'll guide everyone. Those who have fallen and those who will follow.""Because that's what we're good for. Because we're Jake Fucking Crocker and Flit Fucking Asuno.""Just who the hell do they think we are?"
>>24909477"You're right. You're right. I'm sorry. I've been thinking that way, myself. We're doing the best we can for, and we'll just have to make things right later. I just never imagined that this was something we'd have to do. I'm a dreamer, Flit. You've seen how I go off on flights of fancy when we start working on something. I want to think that everything has a reasonable answer, that if we're just clever enough and good enough we can come through this unstained. But I guess sometimes we don't have a choice. All we can do now is make sure that their deaths were a necessary evil and not a pointless slaughter."Thank you for...I don't know, not getting fed up with my idealistic bullshit, Flit. I think in a lot of ways you're the more adult of us two. You're a good man, and I'd be proud to work with you to make this right. So for the sake of a path we can walk without shame, let's win this battle so we can get to fighting the war."
If human beings are souch better, why is it that we can't hold off on the shooting and just allow ourselves tbe chance to talk to each other. We fired first Flit. Us, not them. We denied ourselves the chance.
>>24909780"... I really don't know Flit, but if it has to be done, I would have you and your friends by my side.""We'll be there Flit, and so will I. People aren't perfect, but that doesn't mean understanding one another is impossible. So don't go all crazy on me, I'd hate to have to fight you." Flit says with a laugh, making you crack a smile.>>24909839>"You're right. You're right. I'm sorry. I've been thinking that way, myself. We're doing the best we can for, and we'll just have to make things right later. I just never imagined that this was something we'd have to do. I'm a dreamer, Flit.

So for the sake of a path we can walk without shame, let's win this battle so we can get to fighting the war. we're Jake Fucking Crocker and Flit Fucking Asuno. Just who the hell do they think we are?""Right, let's do this!" Flit shouts."Now I'm gonna go to bed, I'm still pretty pissed of an angsty. Gonna need pancakes in the morning. I swear to god if anyone makes waffles I'm going to paint my Gundam red and crash an asteroid into Earth""I'll make sure they make chocolate pancakes for everyone. We'll need it..."You hang up and let out a sigh.Now what Jake? Straight to bed or something else?
>>24909912Draw up plans for New Age-Builders, hell an AGE-ReactorAll up AEUG/Celistial Being up in this bitchcapatcha: legacy age
>>24909912Call mom. After that, engineering based on our old LARP characters.
>>24909964Before this, emit all that data about Vagans to all the news stations from a safe, untraceable location."The road to hell is paved with good intentions, isn't it?"
>>24909984Yes, all of my yes, Use every trick we got in the book. Every place will know
>>24909704"Heh. Look at that. Normally I'm the one giving the cheesy speech."Yeah. You're right. People are good at heart, even if they let themselves be held down from what they know is right. I can't let this break me. If we stop now we're admitting that the way things are right now is inevitable, that it's just too big for anyone to change. Even if I lose hope, I'll fight against that for spite's sake, if nothing else. The only way out is through. We're trapped in hell, but we'll keep digging until we pierce heaven itself and find a path to a better tomorrow. Who the hell do they think we are?"
I don't really like that route. A lot of atrocities have been committed in the name of a percieved greater good. Like the halocaust, the Spanish Inquisition, and the horrors that when on in communist Russia.
>>24909912Create a virus that anonymously uploads the data on the origins of the Vagan and both theirs and the Federations atrocities to the whole Earth Sphere. Time to open Pandora's Box and kick canon to the curb.
>>24910091The canon train is off the rail now buddy. Let's buckle up and take the Ride to Maximum speed
>>24910091>>24910015>>24909984If you let the info about the Vagan leak out onto the web, it could be disastrous. People could actually begin to side with the Vagan, more lives could be lost from the new found Vagan sympathy. It's doubtful that anything that comes from this will be good and it's very unlikely people will ask for a stop to the fighting or the Vagan will even be inclined to listen.All of it would be on your shoulders...What do you wish to do Jake
>>24909984Lets not do that. That will turn this into an Total War with billions of dead.Go to bed.
>>24910091Oh my, yes. And I'm still going with my "rebuild Ambat's communication array to hit the whole Mars Sphere" plan from last thread. The first step to ending this problem is ensuring accountability from our leaders, on both sides. Clearly the system is too heavily based on scapegoating and evasion if Grodek could manage to take the fall for the entire fleet we've built. Likewise with the Vagans, if their military is willing to employ the people we've seen from them.
>>24910146I say we work out the frustrations by making something.
>>24910146Focus on the task at hand. Make sure Carlos knows how to work those fancy new bits we made for him, and check up on Hogan and the pirates to make sure everything is in order. Everything else will have to be last minute changes. We got less than 4 days, so we better make them count.This generation is going out with a bang.
>>24909613What, you think |we're| going to be the Titans?Haha, no. The Titans have already won. They are the Feds.Also, fuck the A-Laws. Their colour schemes are shit.
>>24910146Let's improve or make something. If shit hits the fan, we're going to upload fucking everything.>>24910176I'm all for that, but let's first get to Ambat. Having the entire Federation on our tail isn't going to help us much now.
>>24910146The box is partially open, let's kick it all the way open
>>24910091>>24910176Why would Jake do that? Do we really want to put the colonies in jeopardy and spark civil war all for some petty principle?Clearly good politics is lost on you. We need to keep that shit secret until the time is right.
>>24910146We don't do it yet. We leak it slowly, using our knowledge as currency to make backroom deals and establish support for our cause. Let the rumors from what we do tell spread, so that general distrust in the Federation grows. But we ensure the same happens to the Vagan. We end this by making both sides unwilling to trust the story their leaders tell them.
>>24910146we still need finish those bits for carlos.
>>24910227That is only going to cause even more meaningless deaths.
>>24910234Oh, I understand the chaos it will cause. Some men just want to see the world burn.
>>24910222Yeah, wait until after Ambat. Maybe save the virus idea for when Jake gets sick of Feds and breaks off on his own. I just can't see him staying with the Federation after the shit they've pulled. No, things are going to get VERY complicated...
>>24910189You didn't make the bits, you modified his suit so that it'll be able to use the bits, you hope. You'll have to make the actual bits tomorrow.>>24910166You decide to go to bed. You go back to your room, crawl under your covers and close your eyes. Dreams fill your mind as you try to find peace...(Alright guys, I'll stop here tonight. I'm going to a lock-in so I'll be up super late. Let's do this game tomorrow at 3:00 PM or possibly later if I don't wake up properly. Things are getting pretty interesting aren't they?)
>>24910227What a load of shit. Causing chaos for the sake of chaos? Put yourself in their position. What will really be gained for this? Piece of mind? Bullshit.This is war. Revealing the true origins of the Vagan will only stir conflict in every echelon of society. We're not fucking anarchists. That would cause suffering that would put the deaths of 3 federation crew to shame.>>24910268Jake is not one of those people.
>>24910277Oh, my yes. This is the best quest on /tg/ currently.
>>24910277See you then.
>>24910269I'm telling you, we need to get to work on self-replicating AGE Builders. Get started on that now and it won't be long before we have the resources to start our own faction.
>>24910269I'm for making Ambat a secret base of our own, where we'd use more data miners to uncover everything, on both the feds and the Vagan.We use that data to protect colonies and innocent people, and slowly leak out particular parts that'd change the world for the better.You know, scandals, politicians, bribes...
>>24910277Indeed they are. I liked the complication of the Federation ships you threw us today. Made for some fun debate.
>>24910285Timing is everything. Letting it out now would just cause anarchy, yeah. Not a good thing. If we could just find the right time and place, Jake might be able to throw the brakes on everything. Timing...
>>24910222I agree with this. Make the virus, but hold off on using it until something really atrocious happens. Then set the world fire, because by that point it probably already is and the two infernos could burn each other out. Don't deploy yet, because the facility Mellis is at could be compromised because of riots.
>>24910318I suppose we shall feed them humans for their consumption.Wait. No. Seriously, it takes scrap to make shit. We're better off joining the pirates. Maybe infiltrating Vagans like Kincaid Nau did to Jupiter.
>>24910451They could always be made semi organically. Just have them take in solar energy and have that fuel their growth.
>>24910353That could actually work. The Federation doesn't acknowledge the Vagan threat, and certainly won't acknowledge their origin. Do we even have to tell them we took Ambat? They managed to cover up a major military operation, why can't we? It's not like it would actually change anything in their policy. Hell, they don't monitor Ambat, or else we wouldn't be in this position to begin with. Let's just stay there. We can use it for our own without anyone but the Vagans knowing.
>>24910485Vagans are in bed with Feddy high command ala Axis and Titans. There's a reason why I compared the Titans with the Federation just now.
>>24910485I think we must tell them about Ambat and what happened and why we didn't take Grodek in immediately.So, we tell them that he threatened us, forced us to attack the colony, and that he's to blame for everything.In the meantime, the pirates set up kip there and chill out. I doubt that the Feds are going to bother with them with a full out war going on.We also get MaG and CD to create dumb AIs whose only purpose is to slowly and carefully leak out information.Who knows, maybe we even get the Black Raven to join us when she realizes that we're also anti-Feds.
>>24910451Why wouldn't it be viable to make AGE Builders that can produce their own mining facilities? It's the most advanced fabricator in the world. It can clearly make all the rectifying crystals and electronic circuits needed for all the toys we've been building, so it can do very complex refining processes. We set it up to make more tools as it needs them. Put some limit on total number of generations that can be built, then throw it at the Trojan Asteroids. Power isn't a problem. There's no mention of any Jovian Energy Fleet equivalent in AGE, so clearly the reactors run off a different cycle than the deuterium-helium 3 reaction. Probably something like hydrogen-boron, given how hot they run. Whatever it is, the fuel is probably commonly available. Even if it isn't, we can just send them to Jupiter or Saturn for the threelium they need. We can totally bootstrap ourselves up to having an army of robots all by ourselves.
>>24910548Good point. I hadn't made that mental connection between "collusion between leaders" and "knows where the bases are". I guess I figured they'd be too paranoid to reveal the location of their forces.
>>24910548Doesn't matter until Jake becomes aware of that. Right now our only priorities are to take Ambat and save Mellis, while making sure as few of our bros die as possible.
>>24910641And as many Vegans dies as possible right?
>>24910655Fuck them. We have a job to do, and they're in the way.
>>24910641Don't worry, I was only objecting "Take Ambat as a base, Feddies won't know".
>>24910675Woah now. Let's not go full butcher here. We will need the scientists for all we can get to make sure we can properly help Mellis and killing the civvies now would just make things harder for us with dealing with the Vegans. Military though, we deal with as needed.
>>24910742Agreed. I'm all for saving the noncombatants and sending them home under the protection of the Black Devil.And promising them how the Federation will pay for their crimes as well. You know, fighting the war in the hearts of men.
>>24910742I'm talking about the regular army, not the civilians. We're not going to talk down every Vagan that comes on that battlefield. We're killing them without a thought, because if we don't, we're dead as dust.The noncombatants will be unharmed.
