Hey hey hey! Let's have some more VALKYRIAN MERCS QUEST!

Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20Quest
Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/A6Q0TxtS

Don't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_Chronicles

You 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. Then you destroyed an Imperial superheavy artillery battery, taking pressure off the city's beleaguered defenders and giving them a chance to counterattack. After taking care of a personal mission for Qyburn which involved events and enemies you'd rather not talk about, it is a fresh new day, which means a new mission and new opportunities!

Like always, you wake up rather early, before the sun even breaks the horizon. It's quite a wonder that you manage to get up so early so consistently.

The base is much quieter now, too. The artillery barrages have lessened considerably, and most of the garrisoned troops have actually begun moving out into the mountains to push out the Imperials. How successful they've been, you don't really know. You suppose that's something that you could ask Freyberg.

Well, it's still early. What do you want to do?

If we don't give her a proper Jager Sturmfuhrer hug before she goes I'll be disappointed.

>Say goodbye to Artya. She should be leaving soon.

Give her some sage advice. "Don't take shit from noone, make sure to always have a gun, and shoot first."
>>
>>25308661

... I don't think that's a very good idea. I mean, she's going to be in GALLIA, our home country.
>>
>>25308661
And if any boys try to come onto you, use pepper spray.
>>
>>25308726
Pepper spray?

Why not just punch them in the nose, like sharks, if you break their nose they usually back off, if not you find other places to punch.
>>
can we tell her that we think a guy named Avan has excellent loot? Please?
>>
>>25308812
Would we know of an Avan?
>>
>>25308812
I would, but that'd be too OOC.
>>
>>25308685
No...it's Gallia...that's PERFECT advice. I second it.

But add in 'Always watch your back, or have someone watch it for you.'
>>
>>25308812
We can't justify that in character. Telling her that nobles usually carry good stuff might fly, but it's iffy.
>>
>>25308812
We wouldn't even know of this Hardins kid. Maybe Leon hardins, but unless we really talked to him then naw. Also OP doesn't want to stray from canon too far, as far as Gallia goes anyway
>>
>>25308661
>>Say goodbye to Artya. She should be leaving soon.

Tell her to have fun.

and break a leg. Preferably someone else's.

>>25308661
"Don't take any shit from anyone, especially for being a Darcsen. Watch your your back, or have someone watch it for you. Make sure to always have a gun, and that it's in working order. Finally...shoot first.

You go, learn what you think is important, and if you come back a proper ruthless bitch with ice in your veins, gold in your heart, and a 89% accuracy rate, and there's a spot in the Demon's Hell waiting for you if you want it.

Remember kiddo, Gallia's a bloodsoaked bitch, but you grew up in a nightmare. If I don't hear that you're the scariest thing there...but not a bully...then I'm going to be very disappointed." Grin and pat her mask. "You'll do great. Have fun, and break someone else's leg."

You decide to go say goodbye to Artya, as you know she's scheduled to leave today. It had been a few days since you came back down from Somtaw, as you and Sam tried to arrange Artya's transport to Gallia. Also, you had to wait for Freyberg to verify that the partisans that were pestering his supply lines really did stop their attacks like you said they would.

It was a bit of an understatement to say that she had really grown on you and the other Demons. After all, she was pretty smart and resourceful, and was an amazing scrounger. She'd be sorely missed, but you believe that this is for the best. The kid deserved a second chance at life.

You see Sam helping Artya load her luggage into a jeep. You wave at them and they wave back.

"Hey, Cap. Here to see Artya off?" Sam asks.

"Well, of course." You nod. "Can't miss something like this."

"Well, hop in!" Sam waves you over. "The others are already waiting down on the docks!"

"Lies. They would never wake up this early." You narrow your eyes.

"Oh ye of little faith, Cap." Sam laughs.

As you drive down to the docks, you review the important life lessons Artya needed to remember in order to fit in in Gallia.

"Remember, Gallia doesn't use a barter system. We exchanged goods and services with ducats, which are those little coins and papers slips we gave you."

Arty nods.

"And there shouldn't be any Imperials in Gallia. If there are, something is very wrong and you can be we'll be there to fix it."

Artya nods.

"And not all problems can be solved with a rifle or a knife. Gallia has laws against that sort of thing."

Arty cocks her head.

NOT EVEN IF I STAB THEM NONLETHALLY

"No, Artya. No stabbing. Period."

Artya sulks but nods reluctantly.

"And watch out for guys trying to hit on you."

WHY WOULD BOYS WANT TO HIT ME? BECAUSE I'M DARCSEN?

"Uhhh, nevermind."

Meanwhile Sam can't stop snickering.

If we don't pull her into a full bear hug after that I'll be sad. I mean holding her so tight she can't move her arms and her head is forced into our chest.

It's another ten minutes to the docks, where you can see the rest of the Demons milling about. Seeing you approach, they begin to perk up. As the jeep pulls to a stop, they begin swarming Artya and saying their own individual goodbyes.

Ramirez fist pounds the "Lil' Demon" and gifts her a hatchet.

Tarin gives her a respectful nod, reminding her to keep practicing all those CQC moves she taught her.

Brillant gives her a very fancy looking compass, no doubt to aid her scouting duties.

Julia, in a rare moment of charity, slips Artya quite a large number of ducats, warning her to keep it safe and spend it wisely.

Heloise hugs Artya and can't stop crying. Alek and Train literally have to pull her off Artya. She then hands her a bag of her best caramels.

Alek awkwardly shakes her hand and wishes her luck, and gives her a scarf, in case she ever ends up anywhere cold.

Headcase gives Artya an old but sturdy guitar, telling her that music is an important part of anybody's life.

Isolde salutes Artya and gives her one of her spare dueling sabers.

Sam gives Artya a hug and hands her stack of books and papers. Required reading for acclimating to Gallia, as well as study material for Lanseal's entrance exam. You took a look at it yourself, and were shocked at how detailed it was.

Then it comes to your turn. Artya looks at you expectantly. Knowing this may be the last time you see her for god knows how long, you give her your last sage piece of advice.

Artya nods, and as a last parting gift, you give her the biggest and strongest bear hug that you can manage, literally picking her up off the ground.

"Good luck, Artya. Make us proud."

Artya nods. She scribbles down on her final note and hands it to you. But there's no words on it, just one, lovingly drawn heart.

Artya waves as she board the ship, and the Demons wave back. With any luck, her ship will reach Gallia without any incident. Plus the sea routes were mostly safe nowadays with the Imperial fleet having bee pulled back.

Finally, the ship disappears over the horizon, and your squad begins to disperse, having other duties to fulfill.

"Hey Sam, I'm headed to see Freyberg. You wanna come with?" You ask.

"Sure!" Sam hops into the jeep beside you. "Gotta make sure he doesn't try to skimp on the payment, after all!"

Driving back up to the main base, you head over to Freyberg's office, which is must less hectic than last time, but still fairly busy. Freyberg's secretary, who pretty much recognizes you on sight by now, doesn't even bat an eye as you stride past her to Freyberg's office.

As always, the general looks tired and overworked, but his shoulders sag in relief when he see's you walk in.

"Ah, good, Captain Sturmfuhrer! I thought it was another of my officers coming in to complain about something." Freyberg sighs. "Please, take a seat."

"Is something wrong?" You ask, crossing your arms. "Last I checked, the war effort for Ustio was going pretty well."

"In a way, yes." Freyberg sighs, sliding his hands over his face. "The momentum is back on our side and we've managed to retake a fair bit of our territory, the Imperials are changing up their strategy. They've pulled back most of their heavier assets and have reverted to small scale skirmishes, similar to what the partisans had been doing to them. My men haven't dealt with this kind of fighting before, and they're getting somewhat... frustrated. Frustration which eventually makes its way back to me."

"So I assume you've got a mission in mind for us, then?" You ask.

Freyberg nods. "Initially, I was thinking of having you train some of my troops in how to handle small scale skirmishes, but now that you asked, I do have another proposal."

"Oh great job, Cap, you just threw away a cushy assignment." Sam rolls her eyes.

"What do you have in mind?" You ask.

"There's a particular area on our line of advance that's proven to be extremely troublesome to us." Freyberg points to a circled area on his map. "My men have taken to calling it Sniper Town."

Aside from how horrific that sounds, I don't think our force is particularly suited to flushing out a bunch of sniper teams.

We are not particularly suited to walking into sniper kill zones.

its not like we will go toe to toe with The End

You do realize any sniper with a brain would just leave the town for a few days or just wait out the tanks and never take a shot until they're gone.
>>
>>25310047
>"My men have taken to calling it Sniper Town."

The doctor prescribed a 48 hour heavy artillery barrage, or until no sign of the town remains, whichever comes last.

>>25310016
please don't tell me the imps have these...

We just need to recruit another spy type member. A mix of Big Boss and Solid Snake. Then send him to bring Karla to us.

>>25310047
>>Sounds interesting.

Alek is going to have his work cut out for him here.
>>
>>25310047
Just send Ramirez in, he'll be fine.

Seriously though we should be good, just make sure Julia and Headcase get their tanks loaded up with smoker dischargers.
Everybody else load up on smoke grenades.

We'll turn sniper town in Amsterdam.

"I'm not liking the sound of that..." You frown.

"You shouldn't." Freyberg sighs. "We have had problems with snipers harassing our troop movements through the area. We don't even know how many there are. There could be one skilled one, or an entire team of them. My men have tried clearing the area, but they haven't been having much luck so far."

"So you want to send us in."

"You and your men should have more experience to deal with this." Freyberg says. "Every day my men are delayed is another day the Imperials have to consolidate their positions. I'll even double the normal rate as a bonus for the extreme hazard."

At the words 'double' and 'rate', Sam's eyes light up.

"It's a tempting offer, Cap."

"Are you sure about this, Sam?" You ask. "Snipers are pretty nasty to deal with."

"Cap, what do you think it'll make us look like if we just decide to refuse assignments just because they're hard?" Sam frowns. "It'll look bad if the guy who punched out a Belkan Knight was scared of a few snipers."

"Ah, my reputation comes back to haunt me."

"Plus, this is a good chance to fill our coffers a bit more." Sam adds. "With all that new equipment we've gotten, our cash reserves are pretty low."

"I guess so." You agree.

"General, we'll take the mission, if you triple the fee." Sam says.

"Two and half. That's the highest you'll get."

"Deal. Pleasure doing business, General." Sam smiles. "And about our last mission..."

"Ah, that's right." Freyberg nods. "I've just gotten the reports. No convoy attacks since you came back. It looks like you were right."

After leaving Freyberg's office, Sam separates to handle the financials. Meanwhile, you decide to try and get some intel on what you might be facing in Sniper Town.

Your first thought is tracking down Elizabeth, who, as usual, is eavesdropping on whatever radio signals she can pick up.

"Oh, Captain, how can I help you?" She asks.

"Elizabeth, our next mission involves hunting down a sniper, or a group of snipers." You say. "I want to have an idea of what we're facing. You think you can try to find intel on any Imperial sniper units in this area?"

"Hmmmm, I can try." Elizabeth nods. "Give me a second."

"Aha! AHA!" Elizabeth grins. "Ooooh, this is perfect."

"Good news?" You ask.

"Well, mostly. The good news is, I managed to get the dirt on the sniper. Intercepted her radio signal and got her codename, which I managed to trace back to an existing AIS intel report."

"And the bad news?"

"This girl is good. Damn good."

any chance we could convince her to join us?

Right, its settled, I want to capture her and get her workign for us

We could always send in Alek alone and have him get horribly wounded so that he gets insane bonuses.

Dude, she's an Imp. AN IMP.

It's been far too long since we made use of the imp hater trait.

Please, please god, let not!-Sniper Wolf be motivated by money. We need more snipers.

>>25311251
wait we have that!?
>>
>>25311161

So... Artillery barrage?

Or would starving her out work?
>>
>>25311235
so was Isolde and Alex. What most people is that the imps forces consist of the people they conquered s well as their own guys. She could be from one such place.

>>25311261
Yes.

Read the pastebin.

and?

She is a sniper, guareenteed to worst death possible on the battlefield if captured, we get her, let her live and pay her, and she will gladly work for us knowing we are the better force

>>25311283
Except for that one guy, he's cool.

>>
>>25311297

I... really doubt this.

Er, I mean... Let's just look at this from the reverse, right?

Imagine if some Imperial defeated and captured Jaeger. And then tried to recruit him.

Why the FUCK would Jaeger agree to that, unless it was part of a plan to escape or screw over the Imperials even more?


No, people aren't just going to join just because.

Plus -- Jaeger DOES hate Imperials. He can work with ex-Imperials. But actual Imperial soldiers? As in the very guys he'd be fighting? Why would he try to recruit them!!
>>
>>25311359
I'd agree. Not enough IC justification to do so.

>>25311359
never hurts to try.

>>25311231
>Loner: +1 to all rolls when fighting alone.
>Survival Instinct: +5 to hit and increased damage when near death.

>>25311384
The only way it works is if she's already a merc and has no real love for Imps herself.

CODEX ENTRY UNLOCKED

Elsa "Striker" Konig
SNIPER ACE
BOUNTY: 2000 credits dead. 4000 alive.

Hailing from the harsh and rural western edge of the Empire, Elsa Konig was trained from birth to be proficient with a rifle and to move unseen. For a girl who relied on hunting to survive, such skills were a necessity.

Elsa caught the attention of the Empire when she was hired as a guide by an Imperial Prince. Impressed by her skill, the Prince inducted Elsa into the Imperial armed forces as a sniper. In the years leading up to EWI, Elsa quickly made a name for herself in the Empire as one of the Emperor's top assassins, often putting a swift end to local rebellions with one well placed bullet.

During EWII, Elsa picked up a nasty reputation since she made it a habit of always shooting the second man in line whenever she came upon an enemy patrol. Using these demoralizing tactics, Elsa has been able to stall entire offensives on her own.

Her only discernible weakness is her apparent reluctance to reposition, though she will flee once it is clear her position is compromised, which has always made it difficult to eliminate her.

Currently has at least 40 confirmed kills to her name, not counting any of the clandestine missions she has undoubtedly taken within the Empire's sealed borders.

(cont)
>>
>>25311401

And for God's sake, send him alone.

I love how people keep him with Jager and not only prevents a buff, but also confers an active debuff as well.
>>
>>25311412
exactly, I doubt we could convince a die hard imperial loyalist. Now if she was a merc or someone grudingly fighting for them it'd be another matter.

Though looking at Elsa's cases, it'd likely be more a loyalist than not.
>>
>>25311445
we take this one alive.....
>>
>>25311445
Yeah, she's just going to eat a 88 HE to the face.
>>
>>25311384
>never hurts to try.

My argument isn't just "the chances suck."

Rather, its more along the line of "This does not logically make sense for Jaeger to do."

It's... gah.

I'm not sure how else I can explain without just repeating myself.

This just isn't in-character for Jaeger.
>>
>>25311401
it only works if his name is vassili zaitsev!
>>
>>25311445
Oh bugger, I don't see anything there that we could use as a lever to recruit her.

She IS worth a lot alive though... dat bounty hot damn.
>>
>>25311508
It's because people have this 'got to catch them all' bullshit mentally.

It really makes no sense to do this IC at all.
>>
>>25311445
Looking good. This sounds like a job for Tarin, Brillent and alex. plus artillery.
>>
>>25311542

To be fair, there is that delicious bounty for capturing her alive...
>>
>>25311472
That said, capturing her for the increased bounty wouldn't hurt. unless it will, I mean. Then shoot to kill.
>>
>>25311542
>mentally

>>
>>25311445

Looks kinda young to have participated in EWI...
>>
>>25311523
yeah if we could capture her alive for interrogation on imperial plans in this front we may be able to get a really nice bonus on top of the bonus for the alive capture. risky though

Send in Alek alone. We need to start abusing his potentials.
>>
>>25311554
But at added risk to his troops. Something Jagar shouldn't be doing. It's bad enough we're hunting a sniper. Trying to take one alive? Good lord.
>>
>>25311584
artillery support as well
>>
>>25311584

Fairly sure his potential activates when he is alone as in far away from the others. Not alone as in flat out alone. As a sniper he should normally be far fucking away to start with.
>>
>>25311579
>interrogation on imperial plans
Why in gods name would a sniper have plans for this front or know them... They wouldn't. Ever.
>>
>>25311569
Merc command uses a lot of pics like that. think of it as a running gag.

>>25311554

"Interesting." You say. "Thanks for the intel, Elizabeth."

"No problem, Captain."

"Hey, can you do a favor for me and round up the rest of the Demons? We'll be leaving for Sniper Town as soon as we can arrange transport."

"Got it."

You look at you watch and see you still have a bit of time, so you decide to go visit Qyburn to see he's finally finished that special project of his.

Going back to his workshop, you see that Qyburn is absolutely ecstatic, judging from the way he is rapidly waddling toward you.

"Ah! Captain Sturmfuhrer! Right in the nick of time!" He exclaims. "I must show you the pinnacle of my work!"

"This doesn't involve chemical weapons or anything like that, does it?" You ask suspiciously.

"Of course not! This is something I know you would appreciate!" Qyburn leads you to the back of his lab, where you see that old tarp you had seen before. With one smooth motion, Qyburn pulls back the tarp. Revealing... a thing...

"Qyburn... what the HELL am I looking at?" You gape.

"My newest invention, the Buzzbomb!" Qyburn says happily.

>What the hell is it?!?!
>I assume it makes big boom?
>I've seen bigger.
>Qyburn, have you been getting enough sleep?
>Other
>>
>>25311666
Dude, that's a little dark for VC
>>
So we're going to put together a stealth team and pounce a sniper, right?
>>
>>25311659

*Shrug*

It seems a bit hypocritical after his initial objections to Isolde...
>>
>>25311681
>>What the hell is it?!?!


what...
>>
>>25311666
We aren't Chechens.
>>
She is best to capture alive. But hard and unlikely and because of being unlikely we shouldn't risk too much. If we get a chance though we should try of course though as long as it isn't a suicidal chance.
>>
>>25311681
>>I assume it makes big boom?

ALL OF MY YES!
>>
>>25311569
>>25311659
Supposed to be EWII. I have a bad habit of getting the two confused.
>>
>>25311666
I'm pretty sure as long as she's capable of talking it counts.

Hell even if she WASN'T capable of talking we could probably make it swing provided she was technically still alive, although delivering a useless captive and then demanding the full reward might be a bit of a dick move.
>>
>>25311681
>What the hell is it?!?!
>Qyburn, have you been getting enough sleep?
>>
>>25311626
You have no idea how they operate do you?

Sniper teams require shittonnes of intel on their theater to work in properly, they need to know troop dispositions of both sides, terrain and all sorts of other useful shit so they can move around and get the shots they need to unmolested.

Snipers gather loads of intel, and are given loads of intel, their job requires it, so of course she would know plenty, consider the intel she would have, especially as a favorite assassin of the imps, as a bonus to the bounty for taking her alive
>>
>>25311696
It wasn't the pic but the background that was written at first for her, if I recall.

>>25311681
>I assume it makes big boom?
>>
>>25311681
>I've seen bigger.

(motion to our pants)
>>
Er, before we send Aleksandr alone just because he has a Potential that gives him a slight boost...

... let's at least check on how he thinks he'd do. Because I'm not confident in him going up against somebody with a reputation like this Imperial sniper.


Besides, we might have other options. Like an artillery barrage.
Hmm, I wonder if Qyburn and Elizabeth would have any suggestions on how to deal with a sniper?

This.

The sheer knowledge she would have alone is worth more than the bounty for taking her alive, so while we should be prepared to end her, we should try our damnest to capture her alive.

Ah, fair enough then.

Whelp, on with the show!

>>25311681
"what is that? I can assume it make big booms but... just what is it?"
>>
>>25311681
>What the hell is it?!?!

As for the "Sniper Duel" We should ask our resident sniper for advice, get Elizabeth to show him the dossier, the works. Also, he is an imperial, so he might have knowledge on how they work.

>>25311681
"I assume it makes big boom?" You guess. You honestly have no clue what this contraption does.

"Oh yes. Enough to level at least two city blocks." Qyburn gives a mad grin. "Thanks to my contacts, I've manged to get access to Theimer's notes, as well as the blueprints for the ISARA biplane. Amazing minds, the two of them were. Shame they died so young... Anyways, the Buzzbomb uses the same concepts that make powered flight possible. And instead of the propeller engine they devised, I developed what I call the ragnite pulse engine. I bit more unstable, but much faster. It will be able to carry a ragnite bomb hundreds of miles to its target! Accuracy might be a problem, though. I haven't had a chance to test the gyroscope guidance system..."

You just nod blankly.

"You.. have no idea what I just said, did you?" Qyburn asks.

You shake her head.

"Alright." Qyburn sighs. "In layman's terms, it's a flying bomb. Give me a set of coordinates and I can program to bomb to fly right on top of it."

"That's...amazing." You whistle.

"Yes, but it's a terrible chore to fabricate. I won't be able to make too many of them at a time."

"Well, anything you can get counts." You say.

>You have unlocked the BUZZBOMB call in asset! Once per mission, you can request Buzzbomb to attack a target area. Keep in mind it CANNOT track moving targets.

>It's AMAZING, Qyburn!
>It seems a bit dangerous...
>Other
>>
>>25311934
Yeah, we should definitely talk to Alek and Tarin before we set out.

In terms of the actual plan, I'd say, bring Alek, Tarin and maybe 1 other scout, have 1 of the scouts lure the sniper into breaking cover, and have Alek force her to reposition, then we can cut off her escape routes by using precise artillery bombardments of certain areas, and herd her into our stormtroopers
>>

Give Qyburn a hug and tell him you love him in a nonsexal way.
>>
>>25311966

Do not have fucking Alek near us this time.

He works better alone.
>>
>>25311959
>It's AMAZING, Qyburn!
Would be great for preemptive strikes on enemy staging areas or sieges, but rather limited outside of those rolls.

Would be great in concert with a sniper/scout team, but we should keep in mind, the potential destruction for this thing is insane, we don't want to go and recreate the firebombing of Tokyo to merely get one sniper.
>>
>>25312027
yea, you will notice how i did not say bring Jager on the mission.

or if he must go, he could be part of the blocking/capture force, far enough away from Alek to cancel out the nerf
>>
>>25311966
I have to warn you. As it said in the dossier, she doesn't reposition. If she gets spooked she cuts and runs.

So starting off loud might be a bad idea.
>>
>>25312029
Sweet! We just need the guy to make more. Like, at least a dozen.
>>
>>25312029
also
>>25312017
We do not want Imp black ops trying to kidnap Qyuburn
>>
>>25312052
>If she gets spooked she cuts and runs.
that is a reposition, and if we cut off her exits with artillery and a blocking force, where is she to go?
>>
>>25312029
>recreate the firebombing of Tokyo to merely get one sniper.
I'm okay with that if it gets that sniper.
>>
>>25312055
Yeah, I'd avoid revealing it until we absolutely have to.

Also, I'd suggest getting a map of the town for Alek to look at, see any stand out sniping locations.
>>
>>25312052
alternatively, we could go with an all sneaky team, prepare an ambush, and leak some intel about a juicy target, juicy enough to get her attention, and then when she takes the bait, have our sneaky team nab her.

Does Tarin know how to make a ghille suit?
>>
>>25312075
That is not a reposition. It's more of a rout.
>>
>>25312055
>>25312089
agreed lets save it as a LAST resort weapon
>>
>>25311959
"You are AMAZING, Qyburn!" You yell as you give the old bastard a bear hug. "Seriously, did I never tell you that before?"

"Many times." Qyburn smiles.

"Anyways, I need to get ready for a mission. I'll see you soon, Qyburn."

Leaving Qyburn's workshop, you link up with the rest of the Demons, who have already assembled and are ready to move out. Sam manages to commandeer a transport truck and you begin your long drive to the frontlines.

Talk to both alex and tarin. Both are experts in what they do.

both!

I think they might see the huge explosion but we could use it for a night attack to cover the launch.

>>>Talk to Alek about the sniper.
>>>Talk to Tarin about the sniper

>>25312168
so we use the bomb for late dusk/night/dawn attacks?

>>Talk to Tarin about the sniper.

He's a former Imperial sniper with a loner complex.
She's a Darscen scout who was raised by guerrillas.
Together, they hunt snipers!
>>
Proposal:
Alek sets up somewhere seperate from the main group, with a few others to act as a guard.

Meanwhile we take the tanks down through a somewhat open position, with Tarin acting as a lookout.

We'd have to take the risk of getting shot at, but hopefully once will be enough for Alek to find her from his angle.

>>25312136

>Talk to Alek.
>>
>>25312136
>>Talk to Alek about the sniper.
>>
>>25312289
Why not let Tarin act independently as well? She's pretty good at the sneaking.
>>
>>25312344
While thats true, her lookout has saved us from a bad situation more then a few times.
Maybe after the first shot is fired.

Guys guys guys, lets use her reluctance to relocate against her.

Lets get her an Alek into a sniper duel, making sure that Alek give priority to not getting hit over hitting her, then have our scouts flank around behind her once she has revealed her position.

Once Alek has her distracted, our scouts can capture her.

>>25312136
You decide to have a discussion with your resident sniper and your best scout. After all, maybe they'll have some ideas on how to take out Elsa.

"Alek, Tarin, I need to discuss something with you two." You say.

And you explain about Elsa and the information you gleaned from her dossier. Tarin nods sagely as you talk, while you see Alek grow paler and paler.

"Sounds tough." Tarin says. "But doable. I've taken out snipers before."

"I haven't!" Alek wails.

"Man up, Alek, you knew this had to come sooner or later." Tarin retorts.

"Hey hey, let's keep this civil." You warn. "We want a way to take out this sniper. Alive, preferably."

"Well, that's a lot tougher then." Tarin frowns. "Usually the best way to take out a sniper is overwhelming firepower... or another sniper."

"Yeah, but this one cuts and runs at the first sign of trouble. If we miss, she's in the wind."

"Well, the first thing we need is bait." Tarin says. "Snipers always look for targets of opportunity. Officers, specialists, gunners, anybody who might be special in some way. Then we'll have Alek and a scout element out in the field. We wait for the sniper to take a shot, and we triangulate her position and hopefully manage to neutralize her then."

"A-and if I can get a good look at the town, I can narrow down the possible positions she might be hiding in."

"Good, we've got a plan, then." You nod.

"The question is," Tarin frowns. "Who's going to be the bait? Me and Brillant are the fastest, Sam and Isolde are the most heavily armored, Ramirez has taken out his fair share of snipers and know how they work, or there's you, the officer."

>I think we can use [specify] as the bait.
>I'll be the bait. I can't order any of my squadmates into danger like that.
>Actually I have another plan. (other)

>>25312425

Fuck no.

we will be the bait! we will be so tasty to her!
>>
>>25312479
>>I'll be the bait. I can't order any of my squadmates into danger like that.
Snipers go after officer's first, this is probably the best bait we can get. Plus our reputation is quite a big draw.
>>
>>25312479
>>I think we can use Isolde as the bait.

No way she'll pass up bagging a former Belkan Knight. Plus she's easily one of the toughest here.
>>
>>25312479
>I'll be the bait. I can't order any of my squadmates into danger like that.

This should be our head on the line and no one else's.
>>
>>25312479
>I'll be the bait. I can't order any of my squadmates into danger like that.
>>
>>25312479
If Jager is the bait, does Alek get the nerf from Jagers imp hater trait? if not then
>I'll be the bait. I can't order any of my squadmates into danger like that.
otherwise I say we send ramirez out there
>>
We also have our mortar crew, in case we need it.
>>
>>25312526
Stand second in line to make use of her quirk, we'll at least know she'll shoot at us for sure.

The problem is surviving. We got trauma plates, but what about a helmet to protect our precious brain matter?
>>
>>25312479
>I'll be the bait. I can't order any of my squadmates into danger like that.

Can't very well ask the others.

>>25312586
Helmets aren't very useful against bullets.

They're there to stop shrapnel and head trauma.
>>
>>25312640
Helmets are less useful against sniper rounds. Considering those can blow holes in tanks/
>>
>>25312479
"I'll be the bait." You say, determined. "I can't very well order somebody else into danger like that."

"Ballsy move, Captain." Tarin says.

"You don't have to do that for me!" Alek pleads.

"I'm the officer, right? No way she can resist taking a shot at me."

"You're a crazy son of a bitch, Cap." Sam says, glaring at you. Apparently she overheard your conversation.

"Come on, Sam, it's the only way to play this and you know it." You point out.

"Alright, but everybody in the main convoy goes fully body armor, then." Sam says. "Helmets included. I don't care how hot or confining those things are! And YOU, Cap, are going to take some extra armor!"

>No way, that'll make me too heavy. I need to be mobile.

You feel a bit guilty about breaking your promise to Sam not to take crazy risks, but this was for the mission, not for your own personal crusade. So you acquiesce to Sam's demand.

"All right. give me an extra set of armor plates and hope that our target doesn't have a habit of aiming for headshots."

Soon, you're donning an amount of armor normally reserved for lancers. However, it does make you feel a bit safer, if not insanely uncomfortable. Shit, was this how Sam felt all the time?

"Heads up Demons, we've just entered Sniper Town." The truck driver warns you. "Continue at your own risk."

You all dismount the truck and get your first good look at Sniper Town, and immediately figure out why it got the name it did. Apparently, the town liked to have lots of tall towers and multistory buildings, making it a sniper's paradise. Elsa could be almost anywhere.

"Okay Alek, time to put that sniper training to use." You say. "Go for it."

"Okay.... I think I got it." Alek says. "If she's a hunter, she's only going to be in a few places. She'll want to be in place that has at least two escape routes, so we can write off the towers. Too easy to get trapped in one of those. I think I've narrowed it down to four locations."

Alek brings out a map and points them out.

"She either be in the church, the hospital, city hall, or the northern mountains."

"Okay, then we do this." Tarin draws a line through the town. "We'll take this route through the town. That way, you'll only ever be in sight of one or two the positions at most."

"Alright." You nod. "Are you sure you'll be all right by yourself, Tarin?"

"I can handle it, sir." She says.

Not really.
A .50 BMG round or a comparable 12.7mm round can penetrate a tank, but it has to be a shitty, early model tank. Anything from about 1943 on is going to bounce that shit and laugh in your face. And only Anti-Materiel Rifles are chambered for those. The three most common calibers for modern sniper rifles are 7.62x51 NATO, 7.62x54r, and .338 Lapua.
And WWII-era sniper rifles usually fired the same round as the standard infantry rifle of their nation of origin, and were often just said rifle with a scope.
Germans used KAR98Ks, their standard rifle.
Russians used Mosin-Nagant 91/30s, their standard rifle.
The Japanese used Arisak Type 99s, their standard rifle.
Americans used Springfield 1903s, which were the standard rifle before being replaced by the M1 Garand.
And so on.

It's risky, but you decide to set up position in one of the southern towers. That way you've got eyes on all four possible sniper positions. However, the tradeoff is that Elsa would have a line of sight on you as well.

You settle in and start ranging in on the various target areas. Elsa probably had months to do this, and you only have a scant few minutes to catch up.

"This is Jager. We are proceeding with mission." You hear the Captain announce.

You take a quick glance below and see two tanks and several indistinguishable figures moving through the town's narrow streets.

"Tarin, are you in position?" You ask.

"Ready and waiting." She replies.

Tarin had snuck into the center of town beforehand, using her skills to stay out of sight of not only the suspected sniper hide spots, but pretty much all of the other possible ones as well. She was definitely very careful. Ideally, she'll be positioned an equal distance from all four points.

And now it was just an agonizing game of waiting.

Anti-tank rifles were massive, and not really any good for engaging human targets. Too hard to adjust aim on the fly. They weren't really even a rifle. They were pretty much a miniature cannon, only called "rifles" because they could technically be carried and operated by one man.

You do need to qualify that with their selecting the best out of the lot, accurizing them, and in many cases adding a telescopic sight.

"I got it." Tarin says. "Hospital. Has to be."

You swing your sights over to the hospital. Now that you know what you're looking for, you can start scanning more carefully. Judging from the sightlines to where the convoy is, you have a rough idea where she might be.

"She's on the third or fourth floor, east side." You say.

"Got it, on the way."

You are Tarin, and you are on the hunt. Working with Alek, you've tracked your target to an abandoned hospital. According to him, she's on the east side of the building on the third or forth floor. It's now up to you to either neutralize her or flush her out.

You creep slowly forward through the cracked and dirty halls, long abandoned ever since the Imperials invaded. Dirty bandages and other medical waste choke the halls and floors, disturbing your finely tuned sense, but you push through it.

You carefully sneak your way up the stairs, careful not to try and give away the slightest sound at all.

"I think I caught a flash from her scope." Alek warns. Third floor. 2nd room down."

"Got it." You say. You've already reached the third floor hallway and have a good line of sight down it.

You move up carefully and quietly, taking a position outside where you believe the target to be. If Alek doesn't neutralize the target himself, at the very least he'll be able to distract her or cause her to flee. Either way it'll give you the chance to pounce.

"Alek, take the shot."

You hear a distant shot ring out, and an impact in the room next to you. A quick, high pitched curse lets you know that Alek didn't take out the target.

"Heh, so they've finally brought a challenge, eh? Heheh." You can hear Elsa say to herself inside and hear a much louder crack as she fires her own rifle.

Your instincts warn you that this is just a bit too easy. A lone sniper out here no worried of somebody sneaking up behind her? Something was definitely fishy. You carefully peek your head in. Elsa was smart enough to set up inside the room where you can't get a clear line of fire from the door, meaning you'd have to go inside. You look down on the floor and see an odd pile of rags and bandages sitting in the middle of the floor...

Right as Elsa fires, Alek fires at the same time. Both rounds pass each other in the air as they head for their respective targets. Alek's shot hits true, striking Elsa in the right shoulder just below the collarbone. She shrieks and falls backward, dropping her rifle as her good arm scrambles to reach for a ragnaid.

You dash through the doorway, your eyes automatically scanning the floor for more traps. In addition to the obviously hidden bear trap under the pile of rags, there were two more bear traps hidden just out of your line of sight. That was pretty devious of her.

Elsa has already popped the ragnaid, healing her shoulder somewhat. However, she drops the spent ragnaid in surprise when she sees you.

You stare at each other for what seems like an eternity, but you know it couldn't have been more than few split seconds. You consider asking her to surrender, but you both know that isn't going to happen. You're both hunters. It's kill or be killed.

You close in, intending to use your rifle to club her into submission. There's a brief flash as Elsa draws a large and threatening looking hunting knife.

"Alek, hold your fire. Friendly in the killzone." You warn.

There's no reply, which is worrying.

You manage to parry Elsa's stabbing attack with your rifle, he blade carving a deep gouge in the wooden stock. You then whip around the butt of your rifle again, smashing Elsa in the side of the face. Elsa staggers backward, stunned and bleeding, and drops her knife. Suddenly, to your surprise, she drops out of sight.

You run forward and realize that there was a hole in the floor that leads directly down to the second floor. This was her backup escape route. You see Elsa scramble off a pile of mattresses that had been set up beforehand and she tries to stagger away.

>>25314856
It's something we got recently. Does double damage if near death, if I remember it correctly.
>>
>>25314856

If he is 2 wounds down I think he gets +5 to rolling. Meaning logically we should place him far far away and shoot him a few times till he is almost dying then have him snip.

Don't what tricks she has down there. For all we know she has a SMG just waiting for herself down there and we be jumping right into the line of fire.
>>
>>25314867

>Jump down after her

Inform the squad. Everyone move in and secure the escape routes from the building. She's looking to bug out, we have to catch her before she disappears.
>>
>>25314867
>>Jump down after her.

Jumping down is the fastest way of getting down, and she'll have a significant distance advantage if we just go for the staircase instead.

She probably has the other way trapped. Also radio the others to try and hurry up.
>>
>>25314891

THIS, FUCKING THIS

we need to get everyone circling her in, but make sure to ask for her surrender, we don't want her killing herself because she thinks we'll do bad things to her
>>
>>25314867
uh...shit.
She could be prepared to ambush us or triggered a trap after hitting the matresses

Use the stairs

Also try to get alek to track her, and see if the others can power through with the armor to cut off her escape
>>
>>25314867
>Jump down after her.

Be a little dumb to trap the exit route. Unless she can set it night instantly with a fucked up shoulder slowing her down we should be fine.
>>
>>25314919
Unless, as one anon suggested, her "trap" is a loaded SMG that she plans to shoot us with.
>>
>>25314919
Personally I'm not worried about a trap but more of a gun stash.
>>
>>25314932
Dazed and with her shoulder messed up? Nah, I think we're fine.

She's stunned and bleeding.

Taking a deep breath, you jump down after Elsa, landing in the pile of mattresses. True to your suspicions, Elsa didn't booby trap her escape route. Honestly, it would be dumb since that meant she would risk hurting herself as well.

"Captain, the target is in the hospital! Currently tracking her. You need to get here before she gets away!"

"We're three minutes out, Tarin, hold out until then!"

"Did get any word from Alek?"

"No, we haven't been able to contact him."

Worrying.

Well, hopefully this is a "Escape" roll rather than a "Suckerpunch Tarin" roll.

honestly, Tarin would be better at CQC than her, and I'd rather get into another fight than have her succeed on her escape

It be a 16- the negatives of running with a jacked up shoulder and everything else vs a 9. I don't think she should move fast enough to get out of dodge totally.

It takes a bit longer for you to disentangle yourself from the mattresses than you anticipated. As you struggle to get out, Elsa manages to get a bit of a lead on you, despite her wounded condition. As you reach the hallway you can see her disappear into the stairwell.

Well, what the hell. She's already got a big head start on you. Might as well try something crazy. You dash over to the window, where you see Elsa stumbling out of the hospital door, right under you as she tries to make the safety of a nearby alley.

You take a running leap out the window, and by some act of providence, Elsa is just at the right position where instead of just doing a roll to absorb your fall, you transition into a flying tackle. Elsa's body absorbs most of the impact and knocks the air right out of her. As you get up, she tries to reach for a dropped pistol, but a distant CRACK and the pistol shatters like glass.

You give the back of Elsa's head a nice hit with the handle of your knife, stunning her. You look up in the distance and manage to see Alek in his sniper position, giving you a thumbs up. Apparently his comms were down or something, which was why he wasn't replying.

Meanwhile, Elsa groans and tries to crawl away, but you grab her by the hair, pull her head back, and press your knife against her throat.

"Just try it, bitch. I've carved up meaner Imps than you." You growl.

At that point the convoy rolls up, armed and ready for action, though they're a bit deflated on seeing that it's already over.

Jager takes one look at you, and then at the downed Elsa before nodding.

"Good job, Tarin."

Now, the hard question is: do we hand her over for old, hard cash to, I assume, Lynch and his merry men (that bounty was listed in the AIS dossier, right?) or do we keep her as a prisoner of the Demons?
>>
>Alek deserves as much credit as I do. Was his shot that allowed me a good shot.

>>25315302
>prisoner of the Demons?

having a sniper as qualifyed as her, with the knowledge she has is worth a lot more than the bounty, plus we could get the bounty anyway because we did capture her alive and she isnt terrorizing the Ustians anymore

remind me, do we care for fair treatment of prisoners or do we not really care at all?
>>
>>25315310
>>25315312
We still get about 7500 credits from the Ustians anyway.

We can let Lynch keep his 4000.
>>
>>25315302
I'm betting we could sell the info we get from her for the bounty, AND keep her
>>
>>25315334
we do care, when we defeated the Red Swallow and stopped his attack on Albion, all his troops and himself were our prisoners, we let them leave peacefully and honourably
>>
>>25315334
Well, we did just let Red Swallow go.
>>
>>25315338
No need to keep her. She is full blooded imp. Let the federation deal with her. She should be in a POW camp not with some mercs.
>>
>>25315337
This.

The money from the mission alone is good enough, and we can sell the info we get from her to everyone else for a little on the side

>>25315351

"Alek deserves as much credit as I do, sir." You say, handing Elsa off to Ramirez and Brillant, who drag her away.

"I'll be sure to tell him that." Jager nods.

>CONTROL RELINQUISHED

All in all, you think the mission went pretty successfully. Nobody was seriously hurt, AND you managed to capture Elsa alive. It only involved you getting shot twice and Alek nearly losing half his skull, but things went well. Qyburn's trauma plates obviously proved their worth.

"You gave us a scare there when you didn't respond on comms." You say to Alek as your squad loads prepares to load Elsa into the truck.

"Yeah, well, Elsa managed to shoot off my headset. A few more inches and it would've been in my head." Alek grins nervously. "Guess I lucked out there, huh?"

"No, not luck. You were just better than her, that's all."

"But man, I don't care what Tarin says, she was pretty damn amazing." Alek continues. "I saw the whole thing, chasing Elsa through the whole damn hospital and then doing a flying tackle on her from the second story."

"I'm sure it'll make a great drinking tale." You laugh.

Unfortunately, your mood is disturbed when you hear a sudden commotion behind you. It seems word of Elsa's capture has already spread, and there are about twenty to thirty Ustian soldiers gathering around you, with angry looks on their faces. And their numbers only begin to grow.

"Heard you managed to capture the Striker." One of the Ustians, a big burly sergeant, steps forward. "That true?"

"Depends." You narrow your eyes suspiciously. "Why do you want to know?"

"That bitch killed a lot of our friends." The sergeant says, pointing an accusatory finger at Elsa. "She deserves to pay for what she did."

"And what do you mean by that."

"Look, you're mercs, right? It's all about money for you. Whatever Freyberg is going to pay you for her, we'll double it." The sergeant pulls out a rather large wad of credits. "Half now, and the other half when you hand her over to us."

So are 2 of our troops, albeit they left the empire of reasons of their own, I'm sure we can bring her around, and besides, we need another sniper seeing as Alek is always failign his rolls, she could help train him

>>25315302

What the hell would we do with a captured sniper anyway.

All the "skills" she has would be sniping and those revolving around sniping...

... which would be completely useless to us since we couldn't make use of those skills because like fuck are we giving an Imperial sniper a gun!


Also, while Elizabeth got the *dossier* on her from AIS, that's because Elizabeth is an Albion spy.

I don't think it necessarily means that the bounty is ONLY for the AIS.

And if it is? Then we simply don't hand her over to AIS.

Give her to Fryberg and Ustio instead. Simple as that.

>>
>>25315380
seeing as her choices are to be killed very brutally at the hands of the mob or most likely execution if she was released to the empire for failing, I think she would jump at the chance to live if it meant signing on with us
>>
>>25315385
obviously as didn't we basically tell the GRA where they could stick their money?
>>
>>25315363
Nope, we are not handing her over to a bunch of angry Ustian dudes.
>>
>>25315365

Yeah but the betrayed she didn't. She will have every single reason to stab us in the spine.

>>25315385

>>
>>25315363
You turn to look behind you. You see Elsa cowering behind Ramirez and Brillant, obviously not looking forward to what the Ustians here will do to her.

You glance at your other squadmates. Sam frowns and shakes her head. Tarin shrugs, and Julia is drooling over the sight of money. Isolde gives you a poisonous look and Alek's face is fraught with worry.

... Does the Empire execute people just for failing or being captured? That's dumb.

Jager has been shown to be a rather honorable sort who while damn good at war doesn't mistreat prisoners, keeps his word, and doesn't tolerate that sort of bullshit.

>>She stays with us. Deal with it.
I also seriously doubt that they'd have enough to even match the fee, let alone with the 2.5 multiplier. Also, since the handing would be now, what was the point of even offering half now and half in about 30 seconds?

Adding to this it is more pragmatic as well to let her get scared then when we defend her she will be much more willing to talk,
>>
>>25315419

I doubt she'd so easily spill her secrets.

>>25315443
That's ridiculous.

They might expect/order her to fall on her sword WHEN SHE IS CAPTURED, so as to avoid giving away information...

... but if she escapes (especially if she manages to kill an enemy officer or two) they'd STILL kill her? ... Really?

Er. Is that how the Empire operates in VC? Because that just seems like bullshit to me.

>>25315455
this, if we make her see us as the only thing keeping her alive, she is all the more likely to cooperate willingly

>She stays with us. Deal with it.

she doesn't deserve what they'll do to her, not by a long shot.

>>25315458
its something the empire sounds retarded enough to do

Merc, you need to get a twitter so I can join when threads start, so annoying missing out on most of the thread

So basically you're just talking out of your ass. Gotcha.

"She stays with us." You say, politely handing the wad of credits back to the sergeant. "Deal with it."

The sergeant glares daggers at you, obviously not happy with your decision. "You some kind of Imp lover?"

"No. In fact I don't really like Imps that much at all. But what I do have are standards. Standards that prevent me from indulging vengeful men like you."

The crowd of disgruntled Ustian soldiers has gotten larger know, and they're beginning to press toward you. You hear some of the Demons behind you nervously arming their weapons.
