And so I'm finally back from my vacation! Time to get to it and get VALKYRIAN MERCS QUEST going again!Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/h8paJQKqDon't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_ChroniclesYou are JAGER STURMFUHRER, leader of the fledgling mercenary company DEMONS OF RANDGRIZ. In addition to fighting Imps for money and vengeance, you have your own private mission to hunt down Karla, your former fiance who sided with the Imperials and destroyed your home.You've arrived in the Federation nation of Albion to help defend it against a possible amphibious attack. However, your boots barely hit the deck before you were assigned a mission to break up a spy ring. However, through a chain of extraordinary events, you not only smashed the spy ring apart, but also managed to capture an Imperial u-boat (mostly) intact, which you repaired and rechristened the Vergeltung.After rooting out several Imp spy rings and fighting off an Imperial amphibious invasion by defeating their leader, Belkan Knight Sir Fleisher, you've decided that it's now time to move on to greener (or at least more profitable) pastures. You and the Demons left Albion for the besieged nation of Ustio, with new gear and squad members in tow.Your first mission went well enough, routing a platoon of Imperial soldiers threatening the city of Valais' supply lines. Now it's time eliminate an artillery battery that's been harassing the city and preventing the Ustians from counterattacking.(cont)
>>25079268Welcome back, Command
>>25079268"You sure this is the right place?" You grumble, checking the map for what must be the 100th time."YES." Sam, Elizabeth, Tarin, and Isolde say all at once. You had all spent the last couple of days brainstorming on the possible locations of the twin Gorgon superheavy artillery pieces. With performance details provided from Isolde, as well as some number crunching between Sam and Elizabeth, you managed to narrow down possible firing positions to one valley. It was actually much closer to the frontlines that you thought it would be, but since they had to lob their shells at high angles to clear the mountains, their choices were limited, which was good for you.You decided to move out during night, to ensure you wouldn't be seen by any Imperial artillery spotters that infested the mountains. You've still got a couple of hours until dawn, which gives you some breathing room on how you want to approach to the valley. Since this was Ustian home turf, General Freyberg was kind enough to provide you with maps of all the roads and passes around Valais, with quite a few the Imps were sure to have missed."Cap." Sam taps your shoulder and points to the mouth of the valley, where you see Brillant and Ramirez approaching from their scouting mission."It's pretty much what we expected, sir." Brillant says. "Dense forest, and not a lot of road. We also spotted several Imp patrols, too.""I don't know if we can take the vehicles with us. Not if we want to stay quiet." Sam frowns. "But we have the relative high ground here, so they could provide us with some limited fire support and keep this pass open as a line of retreat...">We all move in as one.>Leave the vehicles and a rearguard to hold the pass.>Other
>>25079268It returns. Welcome home merc.
>>25079420>Leave the vehicles and a rearguard to hold the pass.
>>25079420>>Leave the vehicles and a rearguard to hold the pass.
>>25079420>Leave the vehicles and a rearguard to hold the pass.It's going to be a pain to bring them.
>>25079473Imp soldier: "what the hell is that music?"
leave the vehicles

>>25079598both are fine to me man
>>25079420>>Leave the vehicles and a rearguard to hold the pass.I'm not interested in getting buttfucked in the behind.
>>25079671The butt is indeed the worst place to get buttfucked.
>>25079420Leave the vehicles.On an unrelated note, at some point in the future, we're gonna have to apologize to Heloise. Probably by letting her draw on our face.
>>25079420"You're right." You nod. "Julia, Headcase, you're going to be on guard duty for this mission."You hear Julia groan, while Headcase yawns."Well, I'll just take a quick nap then. Wake me up when you need some help." He says."You going to leave just the two of us here?" Julia asks.>Who will you take? Who will you leave behind?
>>25079726Thinking leave behind Ramirez or maybe brilliant.
>>25079779Hrrrrrm. No ideas?
>>25079779"RAMIREZ! Defend the armor with your rifle!"
>>25079726Okay, we'll want to take the bulk of the squad with us, and leave behind a force to hold a position just in case.So leave Aleksandr, just in case they have other things that come up, the two tanks, and maybe one other.
>>25079726Ramirez stays to provide anti-lancer/explosives support, the rest of us move in.
Did Julia get the 88mm mounted yet?
>>25079938Yes, she already has the 88 equipped.
Ramirez+Alek is what I would go for. Stormtrooper+sniper at a good distance just in case it gets too hot.
>>25079964True, and the sniper won't do us much good crawling through bushes two inches from the enemy's face. Ramirez + Alek seems good to me.
>>25079964Might also want to equip some plastic Plastic Explosives to a crew member as well. Just because we are on demolition duty and might just get lucky enough to avoid detection for a while.Another thing is making sure Elizabeth is around to intercept enemy comms.
>>25080095I assumed Heloise had them, but if she doesn't make sure she does.
>>25079726"Alek, Ramirez, you two stay here and hold the fort. Alek, can you get a vantage point from here?""Well, I can climb a bit up this mountain and get some good line of sight. Range might be troublesome, though. It's a big valley.""I know you can do it." You assure him. "The rest of you, we're going into the valley. Essentials only. We need to be quick and quiet."The rest of the squad nods, checks their weapons, and begin to move in. Ahead, you can see two methods of approach.First, there's the woods. There's lots of cover you can use to hide from the Imps, but it's thick and large. There's actually a very good chance you can get lost in there. Second is an old logging road. From the fresh tracks and footprints, it's obvious it's being used for supplies or patrols. Following it is a guaranteed straight shot to the target, but chances of being spotted by a patrol are much higher, since they'll frequent the road more often.>Take the road.>Move through the forest.>Other
>>25080197>Move through the forest.Time for Brillant's training to come to use.
>>25080197>move through the forest
>>25080197>Move through the forest.Also, for the sniper team we should have Ramirez taking the shots, since he can use every weapon, and Alek should be his spotter, since he's more experienced as a sniper.
>>25080197>Move through the forest.Sneaky time.
>>25080197"We're going for a bit of a hike, Demons." You say. "Tarin, Brillant, I want you two on point. We need to find our way to the target, preferably before sunrise."Both scouts nod and silently filter into the forest while the rest of your squad follows close behind.>roll 2d20

>>25080477You make good time through the forest. Brillant seems to be in his element, since the Ustian mountain ranges resemble his homeland. He picks his way through the trees and brush to find an effective path.Meanwhile, the forest is almost completely silent. The leaves and brush do a good job of absorbing sounds, and the noise the Imps and their artillery cause scared away most of the native wildlife.However, you see Tarin kneel and make a fist, warning you to hold position. "What do you see?" You whisper."Imp patrol. Four men. Two scouts and two shocktroopers.">Take them out.>Take them out SILENTLY.>Let them pass.>Other

>>25080707no, that's good, we roll for the squad, he rolls for npcs.since the only npcs in the area are the imp patrol...
>>25080684"Shit, why the hell are we all the way out here?" One of the Imp soldiers grumbles. "Nothing but trees and the goddamn cold.""Because somebody with more shiny pins than we do said so." The lead scout retorts, obviously just as enthusiastic about this patrol as his buddies. "That's all there is to it."One of the scouts stops and looks in your direction for a second, tilting his head curiously."Hey! Mike! What the hell are you doing?!" One of the shocktroopers yells. "Lets get going and get this shit over with.""I thought I heard somethin-""There's fucking nothing but trees. Trees where we were, trees where we are, and we're going to be walking into even more trees! Just get your ass moving!""Fine, fine." The scout grumbles and follows his squadmates, not even giving a second glance back."You can see Tarin just shaking her head. "Unprofessional.""Let's keep moving." You say.>roll 2d20

>>25080765As you make your way further into the forest, you come across the river. It's not particularly big or threatening, though. One by one, your squad begins stepping or jumping over the river, except for Sam, who stands at the edge of the river with a glum look on her face. You wonder what could possibly be going on when it clicks.Due to her size, Sam's not tall enough to just step over the river, and her lancer gear made her too heavy to just jump over it."Problem, Sam?" You ask, trying not to grin or smile."Shut. Up." Sam scowls.While funny, you realize that you're wasting valuable time. You need to move right now.>Just tell her to suck it up and wade through.>Toss her.>Other
>>25080879piggy back ride?
>>25080879Take her stuff and jump it so she can jump herself.At least let her keep a little dignity.
>>25080895"Ehehehehe remember when we first met?"
>>25080895If we're going to carry her we should at least do a princess carry.
>>25080922>>25080895Time to recreate how we first met.
Use her lance to pole vault!
>>25080879"Sam, you know how you once told me that no one tosses a Lancer? Well there's a first time for everything." then grab her and throw her across before she can object.
Rolled 11, 5 = 16>>25080879"Remember when we first met? Lets try a similar solution."
>>25080895Supported.This shall be hilarious.
>>25080879"Well, I suppose I can take one for the team." You sigh. "Sam, toss me your lance.""Um, okay, Cap." Sam lobs her lance over the river and you catch it and set it aside. Then you leap back to her side of the river."Okay, here we go." You say as you bend down and pick her up, slinging her over your shoulder."Hey! S-stop it, Cap! This is embarrassing!" Sam wails."Ah, it's not like it's the first time we did this." You grin. Now all you have to do is get across the river. Preferably without getting wet.>roll 1d20
Rolled 8>>25081008Time to make tank noises.
>>25080922>>25080879>otherDo you remember a certain little Gallian village? Because I sure do!Heft her and jump!
Rolled 17>>25081008dice gods hear me roar!!
>>25081064On the bright side at least we bought STR last time. So it might not be to bad.
>>25081091You sure? Pastebin says we have 1 str, but MC may just not have updated that.
>>25081112I'm pretty sure we had zero before.
>>25081112I think it was zero before.So did we knock out Fleisher before or after we had one strength?
>>2508106413 is an okay roll and I doubt carrying someone across a river is going to be so monumentally hard that we'll completely fuck up and screw everything over without a 15+ roll.
>>25081033You try make a running leap across the gap with Sam over your shoulder, but... you don't quite make it. Whether it was because you flubbed the jump, or Sam's extra weight, you land just short of shore and are rewarded with your boots getting drenched in freezing water. Your shit eating grin suddenly turns into a pained grimace."Serves you right." Sam pouts after you set her down on shore. The other Demons are trying not to laugh, whether from the carry stunt or the failed jump or both, you're not sure. A venomous glare from both you and Sam silences them.Meanwhile, this whole time, Heloise has been kneeling at the shore staring at the water, her face contorted as if in deep thought."Heloise! What are you up to?" You ask."There's something about this water..." Heloise dips her finger into the water and licks it. "I knew it!""What?""This river's contaminated with motor oil and gunpowder. I'll bet you the Edelweiss that the Imp battery we're looking for is upriver from here.""That's... pretty good." You admit. "Okay, lets move!">roll 2d20

>>25081214I'm sorry. I'll report to the shame box right now.

>>25081181>>25081192I know these won't count but I really wish they did.
>>25081184Oh, it's just some wet boots. Nothing too serious.>>25081183Following the river seems to have been the right call, as you can hear the distant thundering of cannons as you move farther and farther upriver. It feels like you're almost there when Tarin and Brillant warn you of yet another patrol incoming."Eight this time. Mixed squad." Brillant whispers.>Take them out.>Take them out silently.>Avoid them.>Other
>>25081308Too many to take 'em out sneaky-like. Avoid 'em.
>>25081308We can't take out that many at once,>Avoid
>>25081308Avoid em. It's probably going to be tougher to do so though and with so many it's going to be a problem to deal with if we have to fight them without our current surprise advantage.

>>25081440MC tried to fool the dice gods, but the dice gods are omniscient.
>>25081458I think he switched it because he knew more dice = more chance for success when our smaller numbers should make us harder to detect.
>>25081440The thundering of the distant cannons serves to hide the noise your squad make as they sneak past the 8 man patrol. They continue on their business, loudly clomping their way through the woods on the lookout for intruders that they have already missed. It's another few minutes before you reach the edge of a rather large clearing. You can see that the Imps have set up a semi-permanent firebase in the valley, with a cluster of buildings surrounding two massive, stubby barrels pointing at the sky. One of them suddenly roars as it vomits flame and smoke, its oversized shell screaming through the air as it heads for some unfortunate Ustian's house."Jackpot." You whisper.Quickly scanning the area, you come up with several possible plans to neutralize the cannons.>Have one team create a distraction while a second team swoops in to destroy the cannons.>Try to sneak through the camp and destroy the cannons.>See if you can get some artillery on this position, whether from your vehicles or whatever Freyberg has available.>Other

Rolled 19>>25081597"Elizabeth." You whisper into your radio. "Looks like our guess was correct. I got eyes on the targets, Grid 9 on the map. Relay the position to Freyberg and tell him to unload every damn cannon he has on it.""I'll take care of it right away, sir." Elizabeth says cheerfully.(cont)

We're getting every damn gun we can get pointed your way. I... uh... suggest you try and take some cover. This is going to be a tad intense.""Julia, Headcase, you got that, right?""Yep, guns are aimed and ready. Just waiting for the fireworks." Julia says."Da. Just give us order and we shoot!"

>>25081800>>25081823Unfortunately, whether it was the difficulty of aiming the shot, or if the Ustian gunners' accuracy wasn't up to par, most of the shots land wildly, failing to hit the Gorgons but managing to make a mess of pretty much everything else around them. On artillery shell scores a direct hit, blowing a chunk off of a Gorgon's front side. Julia's 88mm shell screams overhead, plowing into the Gorgon's track. Mortar shells land on both Gorgons. While not doing much damage to the guns themselves, the mortars do manage to kill or scatter the crews, preventing them from being able to move the guns to a safer position.However, not every shell hits the enemy. One such such lands perilously close to your position, serving as a cold reminder that you're also technically in the line of fire.Meanwhile, ammo caches are set off and explode in a cloud of flame, forming a brief second sun. The Gorgons are wounded but not down, and either case they won't be going anywhere for a while.>Stay here and keep reporting to Freyberg. Confirm the kill.>They're confused and scattered.

>>25081979After what seems like an eternity, the shelling finally ends as Freyberg's guns have to stop to restock their ammo. You notice that as soon as the shells stop falling, Imps are already running back to try and repair the Gorgons and put out the fires. At the rate they're going they might be able to get the moved before the next bombardment is ready."Demons! We're going to go in and finish those things off!"

>>25082552>>25082553Shit, I don't even. I think we're kind of gonna break even on this, though one of our men is definitely going to get hurt.
>>25082552Your shots don't really do much damage, but it keeps most of the Imps in place while the rest of your squad throws their frag grenades and Sam and Isolde fire off their frag lances. Explosions ripple across the Imp line, basically wiping the defenders out.Unfortunately, they manage to get a volley of shots off. Tarin takes a rifle shot the shoulder while Isolde take two hits in her breastplate and collapses."Isolde!" Sam rushes over to her fellow lancer and rolls her over. She's still alive, for now."I-I'm fine." Isolde mutters.Heloise does a quick check on Isolde. Her armor managed to stop one of the bullets, the other managed to penetrate."The wound's shallow." Heloise grimaces. "But it's going to take a while to fix. Tarin's wound, too."You frown. It's only a matter of time before more Imps start to rally and swarm you, but you can't very well keep pushing with two of your squad hurt."I don't think we can do this on our own, Cap." Sam frowns.>We need to reach those guns. Keep moving.>Stay here and wait till they're both properly treated.>Split up.>Other>Also, call in the rearguard to reinforce you or not?
>>25082825Call in the rear guard, have Heloise Isolde and Tarin back off and meet up with them, while everybody else pushes forward.
>>25082825>Stay here and wait till they're both properly treated.The tanks can keep firing, but they shouldn't move to reinforce yet.
>>25082825We just need to tie up the enemy until our own guns can ready up another salvo! And they're out of commission for at least a little while too. Don't push our luck. Hunker down and get 'em treated, or even possibly start falling back.
>>25082825>We need to reach those guns. Keep moving.>call in the rearguard to reinforce you or not?
>>25082825its time to call in our tanks
>>25082825This is why we should have just helped the artillery... sigh.Anyways. >Stay here and wait till they're both properly treated.>Call up reinforcementThey know we're here, might as well go full on.>>25082877>our own guns can ready up another salvo! We're in the kill zone for friendly fire most likely. I would prefer not to be hit by it.
>>25082825This is the situation where artillery would be useful as hell. >Stay here and wait till they're both properly treated.>Call up reinforcement
>>25082825And this is why we should of stayed put and let the artillery do the job for us.
>>25082929That's why I said 'possibly start falling back', hell no to sticking around when they start firing again.
>>25083023>possibly start falling backMakes this charge a waste of both time and wounds. If we were going to wait for arty to help we should have never charged out in the first place. Instead continued to play spotter like we were at the beginning .
>>25082825"Julia! Headcase! Get your asses down here right now! We're in dire need of some armor support!""Jeez, what did you guys get yourselves in this time?" Julia sighs."You should just take a deep breath and relax, man." Headcase says. "We'll be there.""Heloise." You turn to your engineer. "Get Tarin and Isolde patched up. Get them to cover before Freyberg fires he next salvo.""Got it." Heloise begins pulling out ragnaids.>roll 1d20
>>25083071It's what happens when the thought of loot gets in the way.
>>25083103Which needs to stop before it kills someone.
>>25083148Hindsights 20/20 folks, no need to judge everyone for how the dice turned out. Let's work on getting out of this.
>>25083174The problem is this was foolish thing from the word go. We /had/ a good location to play spotter. We /could/ have walked that artillery all over them. But nope. People suddenly gets this dumb plan of charging in. You don't loot before or during a mission. You want loot? Get it after the mission from whatever is left.
>>25083125"wait, What the hell is that music!?"
>>25083262Friends all tried to warn me but I held my head up high.All the time they warned me but I only passed them by.They all tried to tell me but I guess I didn't care.I turned my back and left them standing there.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBYzMRhOTCw

>>25083125Fortunately, with the fires and secondary explosions, the other guards don't notice the brief firefight that took place and continue with their efforts to try and save the Gorgons.Suddenly, you a hear faint noise under the roar of fire and music. Was it... music?"What the hell is that sound?" You ask moments before Headcase's tank destroyer bursts from the treeline."HEEEEEERE'S HEADCAAAAAAASE!""Headcase! Where's Julia?" You ask."She's still trying to get through the forest with the others. Fenrir doesn't really agree with this forest, apparently."You turn to look at the Gorgons. This close, there was no way Headcase could miss them. Plus his cannon was powerful enough to completely demolish them with a direct hit. On the other hand, those guns would make great salvage, but that would mean you'd have to eliminate every Imp in the area in order to safely capture them.>Headcase, take out the Gorgons and we can get the hell out of here.>Try and take the Gorgons intact. They could be useful.>Other
>>25083342>Try and take the Gorgons intact. They could be useful.

well at least they will explode nice
Rolled 18Get headcase to take out the Gorgons.Tell the artillery to launch of second wave when we get far enough away.
well there will be Gorgons in the future that we can capture...
>>25083342"Headcase, take out the Gorgons." You say. "Everybody else, fall back. Once Headcase takes out the Gorgons he and Julia will cover our retreat. Then Freyberg can finish off whatever is left with his artillery.""Got it, sir." Headcase says. Two shots and two fireballs signify the Gorgons being permanently ended as a threat.As you small convoy trundles away from the battlefield, you can hear the whistling of more Ustian shells raining down on the Imperial base. Whether they were on target or not, you don't know and you don't care. >Check on the wounded. See if they're okay.>Call Freyberg, tell him the mission is completed.>Have Sam take over and get some rest.>Other

>>25083807> not watching it every memorial dayI am too tired to really be offended, but damn.
>>25083807Stop reading this threadGo watch itNowSeriously
>>25083653You decide to check in on Tarin and Isolde, who are still recovering from their wounds. While the ragnaid has healed the for the most part, they're still exhausted from the ordeal."Hey, are you two all right?" You ask, a bit worried."I've had worse." Tarin shrugs, and then winces as the motion irritates her wounded shoulder."Likewise." Isolde nods in agreement. "A Knight would never succumb to such a minor wound."You nod. Given both their backgrounds, you have no doubt they're no stranger to getting hurt. However, you get the feeling they're also saying it so as not to worry you."Ragnaid, some pretty amazing stuff, isn't it?" Heloise smiles.>Do you want to say anything else?
>>25083993Props on the attentive medical care.
>>25083993I wonder if the Q-man can upgrade the Ragnaid?
Did everyone fall asleep?
>>25083993Very good team. Carry on.

>>25084238maybe they took >>25083885 's advice
>>25084327Its not really a great juncture for dialogue, and Im too tired to think up something worth saying beyond 'good job'.
>>25083993"Ustio is ours! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... eh, I mean, safe. Ustio is safe."
>>25083993"Good job on the medical care." You say to Heloise appreciatively. "Aw, it's nothing. Just twist and pop a ragnaid." Heloise laugh lightly."Well, you did a good job anyways." You say, leaning back to get some rest. You knew that even though this mission was over, Freyberg would be throwing another one at you.---Meanwhile, on the other side of Europa, Sir Erik Schnee prepares for one of his greatest and most difficult battles yet.Politics."Princess, why must I attend the Council meeting?" You ask, not even bothering to hide your glumness. "My place is on the battlefield, not a council chamber.""Because." Princess Karla Hohenzollern says striding down the hall, "I have a special project I must attend to that requires my personal attention. I have no time for Council matters, and you are the only one of my personal guard present.""Why didn't you just send me to Ustio with Sir Heinrich?" You ask."Redundant. Only one knight is necessary to lead an offensive. I'd rather save you for something much more important. Like this!">I really think you should reconsider.>I will do my best, then.>I don't even know anything about the Council!>Other
>>25084388>I will do my best, thenBut Princess, in order for me to do my best, I require a detailed briefing. What specific Council matters do you want me to attend?

>>25084388So instead of a Manly bare-chested fist fight on top of a burning Marmota Mk.II, Jager and Erik have Jolly Cooperation?
>>25084509To be fair to Shirou, that both makes sense in context (he DOESN'T die when killed due to having Excalibur's sheath magically fused with him) and is a play on an actual Japanese figure of speech which just doesn't translate very well.
>>25084535>Jager and Erik have Jolly Cooperation?Depends on whether or not Jager can manage to get Karla to lead a Belkan rebellion against the rest of the empire.

I shall verbally cut them down and rain your agenda down upon them like artillery.Metaphorically speaking of course."Karla bursts into laughter at your sarcastic yet blunt summary of what you intend to do. You know this is something she would never be able to do in public, which makes you a bit glad she trusts you enough to act this way in front of you."Ah, the searing Phoenix wit. You can make a heated battle out of anything, can you?" Karla says, wiping a tear from her eye."But honestly, I know nothing about the Council.""Just a bunch of doddering old fools who care more about looking good in front of the Emperor than acting in the best interests of Belka." Karla waves it off. "All you need to do is use your position as representative of the Knights to veto everything they try to pull. That's all there is to it.""What if they implement something that's actually beneficial?" You ask."It would be the first time I've ever seen it." Karla shakes her head. "Just... can you please make sure nothing happens? Father isn't quite what he used to be in his prime. I'm afraid one of these days he'll actually listen to what those old fools say.">Why do you hate the council so?>Is your father not well?>Other

>>25084988The fuck did I just watch.
>>25084835Spotting is pretty complicated though, you need direct two way communication to all of the batteries firing. They have to space out their shots and calculate the time to impact, and when the shell hits they sound off one by one with the battery name. That's how you know who fired what and how you should direct them on target. We wouldn't have been able to start spotting there without having all of the batteries fire again. And that one was already awfully close..Anyhow it's clear that we need to designate/train someone for spotting full time since we seem to be relying on artillery a lot. (especially in this particular theatre of operations) Alek maybe since he tends to have the best view, or maybe even Elizabeth if she does a field op with us.
>>25084774"Why do you hate the Council so?" You ask. As you've said before, you've never really paid attention to the politics of Belka. You were off fighting some sort of enemy or another."The Council is a poison that festers in the heart of Belka. For generations they've done nothing but try to undermine the power of the monarchy and the knighthood. I've done my best to stem their actions, but they have their small victories. They cast out Isolde and involved us in that disastrous war with Gallia. They continue to make pacts with the Empire that chips away at Belka's independence. Independence it fought hard for when it was annexed into the Empire.""How can they be so disloyal? Have they not taken oaths of fealty and honor?""That's the problem." Karla shakes her head sadly. "The Council is an Imperial institution. Knighthood is not necessary to hold a Council seat.">HERESY!>Thank you for informing me.>Other

>>25085321>>25085084 here, I agree that the breaking away part may be too much, but I do want to establish Erik's opposition to the Empire. Maybe something like this:""I've always maintained, Princess, that it was a foolish decision to give up our independence and join the Empire in the first place. They promised to treat us with respect and honour like allies and equals, but in practice they see us as just another vassal state, an attack dog to sic on its enemies. Belkan lives are lost for their cause, not for protecting our homeland. Their councillors require our protection, but they serve only the Empire's interests.""I assure you, Princess, while the beating I will administer is only a retorical one, I will pull no punches when I'm attending the Council."
>>25085084I would really like to use this, but it's a bit OOC for Erik since he's never been concerned about the politics... until now that is.>>25085284"I can make no promises." You say truthfully. After all, your specialty was hitting people in the first place."True, but try to rein it in, alright? I have a squire well versed in the issues should you need him. Williams is his name.""It will be done, Milady." You bow."Thank you! I'm counting on you, Erik! Remember, be on your best behavior, since you're representing me!"

>>25085442First things first, you need to find the squire. Even though you have your pride as a knight, any smart knight knew never to go into battle alone. You suspect he would be waiting near the Council chamber. Sure enough, you find a very young man, more like a boy, practicing sword swings in the courtyard outside the building the Council held their meetings in."Squire Williams?" You ask."Ah, yes, that's me! A pleasure to meet you, Sir Schnee!" Williams salutes."Where's your heraldry, boy? I don't see any." You say, giving Williams a close scan."Ah, about that..." Williams frowns. "I haven't been assigned to a proper knight yet.""Well, we'll worry about that later.">Lets get to the meeting. We don't want to be late.>Tell me what this meeting is about.>What do you know of the Princess?>Other

>>25085665>Tell me what this meeting is about.Maybe if this kid impresses us, we can take him on as our Squire. We need SOMEONE to fix it when we get tracked, after all.
>>25085665Man, squire looks like he's a snot-nosed kid. A little worried. Still, if the Princess says he knows what he's doing, he knows what he's doing>Tell me what this meeting is about.
>>25085665"First things first, tell me what this meeting is about." You say. "I don't like going into battles without knowing what I'm getting into.""Well..." Williams sheathes his sword and pulls a ledger from his pack. Peeking inside, you see he has quite a lot of them. "There's only one major issue to deal with today. It's about what to do about Belka's Darcsen population.""What of it?" You ask."Well, historically, Belkan is one of the most lenient Imperial states when it comes to the treatment of Darcsens. Since Belka's original laws mention nothing about ethnic heritage, by letter of the law, Darcsens count as Belkan citizens and are afforded the same protections. The Council's current agenda is to uh.... 'rectify' that mistake.">A "mistake"?>Never liked Darcsens.>Other
>>25085890>>Never liked Darcsens.Because Schnee is one of the few people I can see saying that.Still, agreeing with any policy these codgers would bring up would stick badly at him.
>>25085890>A "mistake"?Getting rid of our laws and replacing them with Imperial ones is called "rectifying a mistake" now?
>>25085890>A "mistake"?we shall rectify the mistake of the councils birth
>>25085890>A "mistake"?"A citizen is a citizen! I'm beginning to see why the princess is befouled by them so."
>>25085920why? he is an honorable knight who, from what we've seen, has no reason to dislike themhe seems like the kind of guy that would stand for justice, no matter someones skin or hair colour
>>25085925Indeed, regardless of our views on Darcsens if you give these guys an inch of ground they will just try to grab more.And besides, Karla told us to say no to everything.
>>25085890"I don't care much for Darcsens. But to call our laws and statutes of citizenship a 'mistake' is to reveal the Council's true agenda. If we cede to them here, which of our laws and tradition will they deem a 'mistake' next?"
>a mistake?As much as I'd like him to hate Darscens, we can't begin his rebellious character arc if he's glad about what the Council s doing.
>>25085890A "mistake"?When did Belkans suddenly become not Belkans? This will not stand my dear boy, Imperials are trying to weaken us by chipping away at our citizenry. My orders are clear and I shall execute them to their fullest, no law violating our peoples' sovereignty shall be passed through whatever the cost.
>>25085937He's an irritable asshole that like punching people into the ground.People here may think he's awesome or something, but that does not make him any less of a prick.
>>25085890>A 'mistake'?Tell me Williams, have you ever fought beside a Darcsen? They bleed red, same as the rest of us.
>>25085890>A "mistake"?we tried Karla, we tried to not kill everyone there, but they made us do it
>>25085925Oh, I can see him doing this. Supported.
>>25085987you've not been reading the threads he's been in have you?
Is it wrong that I read everything Erik says in Sean Bean's voice?
>>25086011not at all, and now you made me go back and read it with his voice, and its still not wrong
>>25086002I have, which is why I classify him as a prick.I'm sorry, does the fact I don't see him as a nice man disturb you?
>A "mistake"?>>25086011I'm now imagining Erik saying "one does not simply take on a Belkan Knight in a fist fight"
>>25086011Oh god, now he's really going to die.
>>25086092no he's not, because he is voiced by Sean Bean playing Andy McNab from Brazo Two Zero, so he can't die
>>25086108Oh please, he's voiced by Sean Bean playing Richard Sharpe. That, combined with his status as A CHAR, makes him, for all intents and pirposes, more immortal than Casca The Eternal Mercenary.
>>25086133>Richard SharpeI hope not, because if so, when he meets the Demon's, hes going to fall in love with Tarin, and she will slit his throat in the night
>>25085890"A mistake?" You seethe. "Getting rid of our laws and replacing them with Imperial ones is called "rectifying a mistake" now?""Ummm... I'm just repeating what the Councilmen have been saying..." Williams says, back off as he senses the unbridled fury emanating from you.Truth be told, you don't particularly care for Darcsens, but then again, you don't HATE them to the extent the rest of the Empire does. They've traditionally had their place as armourers and smiths in Belka. In fact, you believe your own tank was built by Darcsen hands.Still, the fact that the Council was arrogant enough to consider changing Belka's very first laws, written since the age Belkans pulled themselves from barbarism and united as a single nation, was blasphemous."Come, Williams. We will make sure this meeting will be an unproductive one for the Council." You say, making your way to the entrance."Yes sir!" Williams obediently follows close behind you.You stride past dozens of posted guards. All them recognize you and do not bother trying to stop you. You finally reach the Council chambers proper, and you find yourself in a large room with a circular table in the center. There are seated 12 doddering old fools and King Priam Hohenzollern IV, supreme monarch of Belka."Who are you?" One of the Councilmen sneers."I suppose all my heroic deeds and actions are written down in those ledgers and books you carry with you?" You whisper to Williams."Yes, sir. The Princess was very specific in what I had to study up on.""Good man.">Introduce yourself.>Have Williams introduce you.>Other
Dear god, now I can't help if, he is cemented in my brain as being voiced by Sean Bean forever now.
>>25086144More like she'll get murdered horribly by other impsI support this pairing though
>>25086144And then with his dying breath he confesses his love for her, and she grows a mullet of sorrow?
>>25086177>>25086144I'm afraid I have to point out that being an EWI veteran, Erik is actually old enough to be Tarin's father....
>Have Williams introduce you.
>>25086157>Introduce yourself.First, kneel to the king. Then, introduce yourself by name, rank and title. Note that you act on the authority of the Princess.[[I thought that Belka, being a Principality, doesn't have a king but a Prince?]]
>>25086157>>Have Williams introduce you.Might as well see the fruits of his studying.
>>25086191that never stopped Sharpe
>>25086157>Introduce yourselfAnd have Williams thump the ledger down on th table as we finish, to punctuate our introduction.
>>25086157>>Have Williams introduce you.That's what squires are for are they not?
>>25086191pretty much what >>25086207 said
>>25086157>Have Williams introduce you.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdWO9ozir1Y
>>25086207>>25086221I suppose someone has to be sane here.NOPE.jpg.
>>25086191Maybe he actually IS her father. What a tweest!
>>25086191They're both adults. And that just means he can feel GUILTY about it.Ah, the delicious pathos of forbidden love...
>>25086233Glad I'm not the only guy not liking where this is going...
>>25086237Pretty sure his inner monologue would have mentioned any romantic entanglements with Darcsen women.
>>25086207How about no.
>>25086157Have Williams introduce you.
>>25086264Pretty sure they aren't serious. I mean Tarin/Schnee would get in the way of Tarin/Brilliant.
>>25086302Not really seeing that either, some of the romance here seems really forced.Like Alek/Heloise. I mean really, being stuck training the other now equals romance? Lame and predictable.
>>25086328To clarify, the last part of that second sentence concerns Tarin and Brilliant, not Alek and Heloise.
Well I'm wonder if there'll be some scenes that put Karya on par with the 3 Demons (Reliable Sam, Quirky Heloise and Socially awkward Tarin)
>>25086328>implying Tarin won't be introducing the poor boy to the wonderful world of bladeplayI'm talking about knife fighting. Fucking perverts.
>>25086369Sure you are, AnonSure you are
>>25086328Wait, what if Tarin's a lesbian, or bi, and is interested in Sam.That would cast a whole new light on that time she tailed us from the party.
>>25086328I've never gone one way or the other. It's the players filling in the blanks here.>>25086157"I am Sir Erik Schnee, the Phoenix Knight!" You proclaim loudly and proudly for everybody in the chamber to hear. "I personally ended the Red Scarf Rebellion, slew the Fallen Knight Selphir, defeated the Federation at the Battles of Ludstein, Volgo, Vergha, Salvation Point, and many more. I have escape death no less than thirty nine times and have one six hundred duels with worth opponents. I am Princess and Grand Master Karla Hohenzollern's appointed representative for this meeting!"The King nods sagely. "I have no idea what any of that means, but it certainly sounds IMPRESSIVE, doesn't it?"The Councilmen all nod sycophantically, but are all clearly scowling at your presence.The lead Councilman, Geffen, according to Williams, then stands."Now, back to the matter at hand before we were so rudely interrupted..."Your eye twitches. Keeping true to Karla's wishes was proving harder and harder by the second."We must find a way to deal with the Darcsen Problem." Geffen continues. "The Darcsen population has done nothing but grow in the past few years. In fact, our studies have shown that they will soon make up thirty percent of Belka's total population if five years if nothing is done about it.""It would also help if they weren't constantly sending troops into foreign lands to fight the Empire's wars." Williams whispers to you."The problem is that being considered Belkan citizens, Darcsens are afforded legal protection by the government of Belka. I vote that we... change this situation.">And what will you do to the Darcsens then?>Why are the Darcsens such a problem for you?>Let them keep talking for now.>Other
>>25086454Listen to the honor less dogs bark for a while longer.
>>25086454>And what will you do to the Darcsens then?Find out exactly what he plans on doing with Belkan citizens.
>>25086454Er, "Have Williams introduce you" won 5 to 3 in votes.Did Erik just decide to Trombe his way through what the voters wanted anyway? Because it was more like him and/or funnier?
>>25086454"The Darcsens also make up a useful and valuable contribution to the war effort. They mine and refine Ragnite. They build our warships and tanks, smith our weapons and repair our technology. They work in our factories, producing armaments superior to those made by the Empire. With so many of our non-Darcsen population engaged in warfare abroad, if we got rid of our Darcsen now, Belka's production capacity would crumble, and the Empire is growing increasingly dependent on it as its own domestic industrial base is eroded. I'm sure you are all aware of this fact. I see no reason to change the situation for the worse for all involved."
>>25086454"I veto."Arguing with these fools would be like playing chess with a brick wall.
>>25086507MC probably just started writing before the rest of the votes came in, but that's funnier so I'll chose to believe it.
>>25086507Oh wait, it was only 5 to 4 in "Have Williams introduce you", not 5 to 3. Even so.Eh, does it matter much anyway, Merc Command?
>>25086545I can just see the scene now: Williams starts introducing Erik and he just walks past him, cape billowing, announcing his titles and victories loudly at no one in particular while the councillors wince.
>>25086569Heh. Yeah, about how I imagined it.>Have Williams introduce you>"Introducing Sir-">"Erik schnee, the Phoenix Knight!">Belkan National Anthem starts playing out of goddam nowhere
We desperately need some new drawfaggotry. So many awesome scenes and characters, and all we have is that pic with the three soldiers.
>>25086454I'm too tired and too crap at politics to tell which of>And what will you do to the Darcsens then?>Why are the Darcsens such a problem for you?is the paragon choice, so my vote is for whatever that one is
I prefer something like >>25086511 because, even though Erik hasn't cared much about politics, being an EWI veteran he wouldn't be completely clueless about the Empire's stance on the Darcsen issue.
>>25086614Wish I could tell the difference in tone too.>>25086511I like this though. If it's true/accurate in the setting, it might be a good point to make.
>>25086511I like this one. Give this spiel, tell them that we veto whatever bullshit they're trying to pull, and tell them to move on.We might not be politically savvy, but we're a knight, we understand the importance of logistics, maintenance, and weaponry.
Hmm, but before we interrupt just to give a speech, maybe we should ask Williams when WOULD be a good TIME to make our speech?Otherwise they might just get annoyed and ignore us, pissing Erik off again.
>>25086556Eh, it's not that critical.>>25086454"I veto." You say simply.The rest of the Council just stares at you blankly. King Priam claps his hands and laughs."Sir Schnee, if you would just listen to our reasons-" Geffen says as he tries to salvage his speech."I veto. End of story." You cut him off."And may I know why you are so adamant against this?" Geffen seethes."Because I believe in a Belka that respects its LAWS and HONOR. Where the people can trust that their leaders will protect them and vice versa. I believe we are decent enough people to rule this land without having to trod on others." You say."Starry eyed idealism, something expected of of Karla's pet dog." Geffen snorts. "That adherence to her principles will be the end of her, some day. Mark my words."He then strides up to you and lowers his voice so that the King can't hear."Go run back home and tell that idealistic whore that this isn't over."Your hand clenches into a fist."Um.... sir?" Williams stammers.>Hit him.>Hit him.>Hit him.>Hit him.>Other (as long as it involves hitting him)
>Other (as long as it involves hitting him)"YOU DARE CALL THE PRINCESS A WHORE?!"then hit him.
>>25086704And so the cycle perpetuates, and at the end of the day only Erik remains, standing triumphantly atop a mountain of battered politicians.An not a single proposal made it through the council that day. Mission accomplished.
>>25086712are we on an upper floor? because if so;>Defenestrate.
>>25086712Grab. SUPLEX. SUPLEX LIKE THE GODS.
>>25086712Goddamn it! What about >>25086511, >>25086640, >>25086646 and >>25086650?Anyway.>OtherHeadbutt him.
>>25086712Give this speech >>25086511then>Hit him
>>25086712PUNCH HIS THORAX INhe insulted our honor and our masters honor, as we are a knight, we are totally within reason to do so
>>25086712kick him in the ballso wait he has none, punch him in the face
>>25086746Sorry, I was already writing up the response.
>>25086730Yeah, turn the tables on him. Repeat what he said, punch him.Although, I'm still hoping we can make the >>25086511 speech afterward. It was a good one.It will also point out that Erik isn't just thinking in terms of naivety and idealism and honor.
>>25086712>Other (as long as it involves hitting him)"My Princess commanded me not to strike you...""BUT THROWING YOU THROUGH THE DAMN WALL DOESN'T COUNT AS STRIKING!"And then we played councilman wall-tennis.
>>25086759That's okay! He can say all that stuff before he hits him.
>>25086712Hit him.>captcha>great apposaidThe Great Appo has spoken. Hit him.
>>25086759as long as we get to use it before we storm out vowing to drive our tank through the wall, alls good
>>25086769... Or we could do this.Hell, why don't we grab him and START CHOKING? While we make our speech.Choking gets the need for physical assault out of the way.Its also technically not punching somebody!
>>25086712First loudly announce "This man has insulted the honor of Princess Karla Hohenzollern in my presence! He has called her a whore and as her knight I have sworn an oath to defend her honor!" Just so it's clear that this is a honorable and reasonable act.And then punch him, or throw him into a wall, or something along those lines.
>>25086770>>25086766>>25086748>harping on performing a speech at an extremely inappropriate time.Seriously guys, you may think it was a good speech (I personally think it was mediocre at best) but post the veto and the meeting being ajourned is not the time to give it, especially not while enraged at the comment.at least try to stay a tiny bit in character.
>>25086784and with every syllable we say we strengthen our grip on him
>>25086712>OtherTake off your glove and slap him in the face."You do not insult the Princess of Belka in her palace without consequence, dog. By the ancient traditions of the Round Table, I challenge you to a duel!"
The time for speeches is over, it is now time for smashing of the face.... repeatedly.
>>25086712Either this >>25086800 or >>25086806Challenging him to a duel might end up hilariously.
>>25086806This man dies. CHALLENGE TO A DUEL.
>>25086806This is great.
We live for battle and this man wants battle so given him a chokeslam.
>>25086801I wrote that speech and I agree with this guy. It's clearly not appropriate now.Having said that, I vote for >>25086806.
>>25086806A duel is the best way to get out of this without having to commit sudoku for one reason or another, so I second.
>>25086806Er, are we even allowed to challenge these guys to a duel?I thought it would be Knights only, or something?
>>25086806This is good. We're PISSED AS HELL, but we're still a Knight. And when knights want to kill the shit out of someone and/or publicly shame them, a duel is the way to go.
>>25086871We can challenge whoever we want, they just don't have to say yes.
>>25086871Jaeger isn't a Knight, and he Challenged a Belkan Knight to a duel. Fair game. Besides, it gives us a valid reason to punish this corrupt IMPERIAL bastard.>Revolution soon?
>>25086712Your punch is so quick that Geffen at first doesn't even realize it. He staggers backwards, absolutely perplexed at how his face feels smashed in and why his nose was bleed profusely. "YOU WOULD DARE CALL THE PRINCESS A WHORE!?" You roar with righteous fury. "This man has insulted the honor of Princess Karla Hohenzollern in my presence! He has called her a whore and as her knight I have sworn an oath to defend her honor!"Then. you physically pick him up and drop him on the nearest desk you kind find, sending wood splinters flying everywhere. Behind you, you notice Williams facepalming and apologizing to Karla over and over for failing her.Unfortunately, since the chamber had no windows, you really couldn't throw Geffen out of one, so you had to make do. You stand Geffen back up, and strike him in the face as hard as you can. The blow sends Geffen tumbling over his chair and leaves him sprawled across the table. The other Councilmen are too shocked to be able to do anything, and are left frozen in their seats in fear.King Priam, meanwhile, claps and laughs. "Oh, this performance is quite excellent! Encore! Encore!"You suspect you now know why Karla is afraid of leaving her father alone in these meetings."You know..." Williams says meekly. "Technically if somebody sullies the name of your lord, you have to challenge them to a duel before physically assaulting them.""Dueling is a form of respect, Williams, and this man deserved none. Remember that." You say coldly. "But... just to be polite..."You walk over to Geffen's body, pull him back up, and say, "You do not insult the Princess of Belka in her palace without consequence, dog. By the ancient traditions of the Round Table, I challenge you to a duel!"Geffen's only answer is a bit of drool and blood dripping from his mouth."It seems my opponent has forfeited his right to duel." You say, glaring at the rest of the Council.(cont)
>>25086931That's right, nobody gets to insult Karla in the Phoenix Knight's presence.
>>25086931>The beatings shall continue until loyalty improves
>>25086931OP, MC, you remind me why I love this quest every single thread. Keep doing what you do.
>>25086931Merc Com. You're a pretty cool guy.Stay cool
>>25086931The Councilmen can only nod rapidly in agreement with you."Good. Now, if there are no more matters to discuss, this meeting is adjourned. Milord." You bow to King Priam before marching out of the meeting chamber."The Princess is going to kill me..." Williams sighs."I'll take responsibility for it." You assure the young squire. "Though knowing her, she'll probably find it insanely funny."Sure enough, Karla DID find the whole affair insanely funny. She also completely demolished you in a punitive duel, though to be fair you let her win that one."So, what did you think of Williams?" Karla asks as she pulls you up from the floor, still smiling from how your graphic description of Geffen's unfortunate accidental fall."He's a good squire. Smart and hard working.""And in need of a knight to take him in. How about it? Lord knows, you need some brains other than me to keep you out of trouble.">Take in Williams.>No, he'll probably be better off with another knight.>Other
>>25087006>Take in Williams.Phoenix needs an antithesis.
>>25087006>Take in Williams.He seems to make a good foil.
>Take in Williams.Every red oni needs a blue oni.
>>25087035Fencing pun intended?
>>25087006>Take in Williams"When I swore the oath of knighthood, I promised not only to protect the Princess and the Belkan people, but also to shoulder her burdens in the field of battle. The Princess cannot fight alone, she cannot be expected to inspire the prople by herself. Me and my fellow knights have been happy to share this burden in the war effort, on distant battlefields, seeking glory and fame.""But now I see that all this time as we have been fighting, we have neglected to take on our responsibilities on the home front. There are battles to be won here too, dreary battles in the Council chamber, with these damnable Imperial bureaucrats that would see us turned into a puppet of their throne. I have sworn a vow to the Princess and I will uphold it. I will fight by her side, to keep Belka safe from enemies foreign and domestic. But today, I was sorely unprepared.""Williams! You seem like you've been in the loop for a while, so I am requisitioning you as temporary squire. I need you to go down to the main library and fetch me texts on Belkan and Imperial law, as well as every treaty and agreement signed between our countries. A knight cannot risk his life needlessly fighting on unfamiliar ground. If you provide good intel and advise me on political matters, I will take you on as my squire permanently. Learn the sigil and words of my house. They may come in handy for you later on."
>>25087006>Take in WilliamsKid needs a good dose of Harden the Fuck Up, and he seems pretty okay.
>>25087006>Take in Williams."I see potential in him, he has a steady head on his shoulders, is intelligent, quick to learn, devoted, and he amuses me greatly. I swear that I shall educate him further in the ways of a true knight.I preemptively apologize and take responsibility for any duels, fist fights, tank fights, political kerfuffles, and other trouble I force him into while he is in my service."
>>25087076You do us all proud Carlos.
>>25087006"He'll only pick up bad habits from me, but I'll take him in if that is what you want."
Not sure if I should feel sorry for the kid or happy. Considering erik is well known for getting into death defying situations that no one should live though.
>>25087046Way too verbose for Erik
>>25087096Give it time, he'll be the single most jaded squire ever. He will face situations in which death is certain with nothing more than a small facepalm and a sigh of resignation. He will be the constantly level headed rational half to Erik's hot-blooded impulsive half, the Spock to his Kirk.
>>25087110Most of it can just be inner-monologued if need be. I just felt like explaining his motives, and developing his reasons for getting more involved.
Erik is outclassing Jager in hotblood. Karla's probably going to fall for him at this rate.I'm okay with this.
>>25087134But Erik won't return her feelings, instead yearning to take on Jager. It will be a wonderful "love"-triangle.
>>25087134Now've you done it, now that you said that anon's going to try to have Jager up the ante with faceplam-inducing results at best.
>>25087134Jaeger's much more refined though.
>>25087006"I see potential in him, he has a steady head on his shoulders, is intelligent, quick to learn, devoted, and he amuses me greatly. I swear that I shall educate him further in the ways of a true knight." You assure her."Good. Just don't get him killed. Not everybody is as unkillable as you are. It would be nice if you remembered that from time to time.""I take the training of my squires seriously, Milady. There is no need to worry.""Good." Karla nods. "In fact, the Federation is gearing for another push into the Round Table. This seems like the perfect opportunity for Williams to be blooded in battle.""It will be done." You bow. "And where will you be?""There is business in the Empire I must attend to." Karla says. "Be careful out there, Erk.""Of course, Milady." You say, wondering why Karla is being so secretive all of a sudden. So secretive she wouldn't even trust telling her personal guard. Well, that would be a problem for another day.>And that's it for today! Tune in on Wednesday evening 6-7 PST for the next thread, which will be another side chapter!
>>25087134Jaeger has a lot more control over his hot-blood. He tends to stay calm and professional until he needs to yell at things or get into a fistfight with a knight. I think Karla prefers Jaeger's more controlled and refined hot-blood over Erik's constantly boiling blood that is always ready to explode.
>>25087193And Karla isn't from what we've seen of flashbacks, she's pretty bloodthirsty actually.
>>25087223I still want Erik to start delving more into politics. He's an excellent way to start the path to Belkan independence.
>>25087223Waitaminute. If Karla is away on business, and Erik and Williams are away defending the Round Table... who will stay behind to veto the Council's decisions?
>>25087274Red Swallow needs something to do after we cross countered him into next week. If anything, it should serve to make him WANT to get back on the battlefield.
>>25087223THANKS MERC COMMAND YOU ROCK MATE!
>>25087274Council meetings are scheduled ahead of time. They can't actually do anything until the next meeting.
>>25087298One question:When Karla attacked our home, did she kill our family?
>>25087326Personally? Most likely not. The same probably can't be said for the troops under her command, though.
>>25087386So we lost our parents and all siblings?
>>25087403we never knew if we had any to start with, for all we know we could have been the last Sturmfuhrer with a bunch of servants in the house
>>25087386That makes me feel a bit better about things. How much more depends on more details.I may be one to practice forgiveness (such as tank getting painted blue), but what happened at the start was no small betrayal.
>>25087441Well, it just means that she probably couldn't stand to do it personally, and instead left it up to her soldiers to do the deed.
>>25087441>How much more depends on more details.pretty much this, she could have had standing orders to capture everyone and her troops killed them all, we dont knowall we know is we fought her, she got away and our guards dragged us away, we know nothing else, and we probably won't until we talk to her
>>25087441>>25087452I've been personally going a forgiveness over romance route. That's just the kind of thing that never really gets completely buried. Also, I think people are trying way too hard to paint her in a sympathetic light every time the attack gets brought up. It's very wishful thinking.
>>25087480I do not habor a needless hate, but I feel romance is out of the question in light of such a thing. Jager may still care but I don't think that bridge is going to be entirely rebuilt.
>>25087480I realized something else: Her feelings about it as she may have a similar stance due to feelings of shame over that attack.
>>25087480>>25087495>>25087503I can still imagine at least one of them breaking down when/if they finally meet. At least if it is somewhere private.
>>25087495Oh, I don't harbor any either. I just find the whole "get back Karla plan" that gets brought up to be pretty ridiculous.
>>25087503that the thing, we know nothing about it, and we will know nothing about it until we talk to her, we've caught glimpses of regret and longer from Karla while playing as Erik, and now she is doing secret stuff secretly, towards what? we have no idea, and at this point guessing is pointlessthat said, I always like a happy ending, and I'm hoping things go well for J&K
>>25087535dude, this is the VC universe, these kind of romances and stories are pretty damn common in this verse
>>25087535Tbh, this is what I think when people start talking about Jager getting back with Karla.http://youtu.be/JpQNw46Sl24
>>25087546It'd be one thing for your significant other on the oposing side to be a mere soldier forced to follow orders. It's entirely different to lead a force that burns your family house down if not worse.I have no issue with helping her free herself from her country's position or looking out for her. I doubt it's much more than that will happen as the whole thing likely created an rift that prevents any romance. I doubt either of them could just forget about that event.
>>25087546It's more the whole "we're going to conquer the Empire, become the new Emperor, and ride on our throne tank with a naked Karla in our lap" part that I find ridiculous, the romantic situation is just making it even more hard to take seriously. Though I do feel this situation is a little bit more grim than the VC canon ones.>>25087539I personally don't see how them not getting back together invalidates the possibility of a happy ending. It's just the most most obvious route to take.I don't know, I won't be upset if it happens, but it would really stretch my suspension of disbelief. It feels more like It'll be because anon wanted too more than any kind of logical progression, if you ask me.
>>25087594>I doubt either of them could just forget about that event.oh i don't doubt that, it will always be something between them, but i do hope that their romance is salvageable, they seem like the kind of characters that could fix things, although it will most likely take along timeand then there's the plan to conquer the empire using Karla, which will most likely involve a political marriage with Jager so he can rule the world while belka gets its independence
>>25087617I'm pretty sure we said that part about Karla and the Empire just to mess with Elizabeth.
>>25087652Except people talk about it all the god damn time, even before Elizabeth even asked us about it. Just look at this post: >>25087624
>>25087617>It feels more like It'll be because anon wanted too more than any kind of logical progression, if you ask me.well this is /tg/ and it is a questand while the whole>"we're going to conquer the Empire, become the new Emperor, and ride on our throne tank with a naked Karla in our lap"is exaggerated, i reckon we can still pull it off, while not being ridiculous
>>25087617>"we're going to conquer the Empire, become the new Emperor, and ride on our throne tank with a naked Karla in our lap"I find this plan exceptionally absurd as Jager up to this point was not a man of particularly great ambition. I doubt he'd want such a thing to run.As far as the happy ending matter, I can imagine that in a likely cause the two find happiness with other people>>25087624I don't think they could exactly overlook it.... nor do I think such things should be able to be overlooked>>25087669I don't think such a disregard for logical progression would be allowed.
>>25087652oh no, we were totally serious when we came up with it, and when we told liz, we knew it would be taken as a joke, which makes it all the better when we bring our plans to fruitionits kind of like a super villains plans, but plausible within this setting if we do it right
>>25087681... I don't think most people are serious about that.Some people might repeat the grand, supervillain-scale, plan for humor and emphasis, buuut... I kinda doubt we're actually really PLANNING towards something like that.Hell, I'm not entirely sure that Jaeger doesn't want to HURT Karla as bad as she did him!Really, I think revenge is a strong motivation and emotion here.
>>25087677>I can imagine that in a likely cause the two find happiness with other peopleI doubt it, there was so much between them, and they both think about it pretty damn often, hell, I think Karla is secretly acting towards them getting together again, and Jager still has a lot of conflicted feelings about it, as well as question to ask when he confronts her.To me, it seems plausible that they could get back together.
>>25087703what she does in secret isn't known, and it's pretty rash to assume they're in line with your agenda with knowing so little.
>>25087694>Hell, I'm not entirely sure that Jaeger doesn't want to HURT Karla as bad as she did him!>>Really, I think revenge is a strong motivation and emotion here.I don't think that would fit Jagers character very well, I mean, it totally works for him to use revenge as motivation and to drive him towards a confrontation between the two, but I think he's too much of a kind hearted soul to go through with it.
>>25087677>I don't think such a disregard for logical progression would be allowed.Have you read/seen/studied the story in the games and anime?although the anime was shit
>>25087694It's also, literally, the motivation we chose for the character at the start of the quest. I'm expecting the flames of vengeance to eventually die down since he's conflicted but a lot of people are acting like it already has.
>>25087713this is true, we wont know for a long time what is going on behind the scenes
>>25087725>I'm expecting the flames of vengeance to eventually die downso am i, it fits his char really well at the start, but when the journey is nearing its end, i think many a thing will change
>>25087715I feel his feelings are mixed between the anger and his affection. Thus while he wouldn't carry out any vengeance, I doubt he'd be able to forget about it either.>>25087722You mean the things with its heroes choosing non ambitious post war fates for the most part? Among the heroes of the games, ambition isn't likely to be found and this likely extends to the demons.
>>25087745>You mean the things with its heroes choosing non ambitious post war fates for the most part? Among the heroes of the games, ambition isn't likely to be found and this likely extends to the demons.Oh no, I could totally see some of the Demon's settling down wellI meant that there is very little evidence displayed that anyone on the entire planet in the VC setting understands what logical progression could possibly mean
I'm more for a subtle kind of redemption. Say, we get Erik to slowly realize how the Empire is screwing Belka over and how the Princess is suffering under its demands. Then, his instinct to take action and take the fight to the enemy will drive him to do what he believes is right.And then, as Jaeger, we recieve a request to assist the Belkan Liberation Army in its struggle against the Empire and its lapdogs. I think it would be a very nice scene to get the final battle with Karla in the ruins of HER home. Regardless of how that battle will go.
>>25088352that would be awesome
