Haha! Finally got my pastebin back! Time for VALKYRIAN MERCS QUEST!Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/Vn3aa6XUDon't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_ChroniclesLast time we left off, we were in the middle of Tarin's side chapter, so let's just finish that up before getting on to the main quest!You are TARIN, a young Darcsen partisan currently assaulting an Imperial police station in order to break your father out of jail. Your objective is to assassinate the station chief in order to put Imperial forces in this city in confusion while you make your getaway. The plan has gone... mostly to plan.You just have to deal with two guards.>roll 3d20
Rolled 17, 13, 13 = 43>>25706940We outlasted you at last, MC!
Rolled 12, 5, 3 = 20>>25706940Hey yo MC.
Rolled 5, 17, 4 = 26>>25706940
Rolled 13>>25706940Haha, time for Tarin!
>>25706940Evenin' to you MCOr rather afternoon for me.
Rolled 17, 17, 19 = 53>>25706940Let-e goooo!
Rolled 3>>25706965The guards are obviously distracted by all the chaos going on, and they're not exactly paying attention to you, much to your good fortune. You unload your rifle at them, downing one in the hail of fire and wounding the other. However, he's still active, and withe no time to reload, you've got no choice but to close in and finish him off.>roll 1d20
>>25706940Damn it, really? I was just about to go to bed!
Rolled 3>>25707078Oh, forget it. I've got like, half an hour.
>>25707082The ride never ends anon.
Rolled 17, 17, 13 = 47>>25707078Hey Merc, if you don't mind me asking, did you actually fall to sleep during this the other day?Did we win?
>>25706940there's also the VC wikahttp://valkyria.wikia.com
>>25707142I was getting pretty tired there, but I generally don't want to run past 3am PST, especially on a weekday. >>25707078The Imp is still trying to scramble for his weapon when you do a full shoulder check into his chest, slamming him into the wall and making the whole thing rattle from the impact. You pull out one of your improvised shivs and jam it into his neck. You then toss the gurgling and twitching body aside and kick the door open. You see the large and portly police chief busily trying to cram papers into a briefcase when he looks up at you in shock.You both look at each other awkwardly before he starts to reach for his pistol.>Take cover!>Quick draw.>Other
>>25707232>Quick drawTake initiative.
>>25707232>Quick draw."Are you feeling lucky, Imp?"
>>25707232>>Quick draw.Will diving into the room
>>25707232>>Quick draw.Pew Pew
>>25707232Okay, so we ALMOST beat him.ALMOST.
Rolled 10>>25707232Again, time seems to slow down. As the chief reaches for his pistol, you reach for one of your precious throwing knives. You've always tended to hoard the things like they were made of gold (honestly, they were just as hard to find), but you think you can make an exception for today.>roll 1d20
Rolled 12>>25707434'ere we go
Rolled 12>>25707434It's always good to use a tool for their intended use.
>>25707434Did we win yet?
>>25707443You hit, just barely. The chief takes the knife to the chest but it misses his heart. Meanwhile, he fires off his pistol, and you suddenly feel a stinging sensation on your cheek. The chief is too shocked at the knife in his chest to continue firing, but that's a situation that could change very quickly.>Toss another knife.>Close in.>Other
>>25707548Well, we do beat his roll
Rolled 1>>25707434The poor police chief was only 2.5 second from retirement, too.
>>25707567>Toss another knife.And keep tossing them.
>>25707567>>Toss another knife.this time, in the throat. Or nuts, whichever is easier.
>>25707567>>Toss another knife.
>>25707567>Toss another knife.Human pincushion?Human pincushion.
>>25707548>Close in.RIP AND TEAR
Rolled 11>>25707567You pick up another knife, silently wishing it well, before throwing it as a follow up shot.By this point he Chief regains his senses and starts firing his pistol again.>roll 1d20
Rolled 4>>25707720Let's Rock
Rolled 4>>25707720The dude needs to die already.
>>25707753oh, bloody hell
>>25707767Oh Wrenloft you got your mojo back. But now are slightly behind on the rolls.
>>25707735However, even in his wounded state, the Chief has amazing quick reflexes. He sidesteps and the knife goes flying out the open window behind him. You silently mourn for the lost knife.However, the Chief starts firing at you and you just barely manage to scramble back to cover, with a few new holes in your coat. Breathing heavily, you try to calm yourself down so you can figure out what to do next."Attention! All units! I'm under attack! Get over to my office and PROTECT ME!" You hear' the Chief's voice squeal over the station's intercom.Now, you're not sure how many Imps are left alive in the station, but even one would be too much for you to handle at this stage.>Retreat and regroup. Get some help!>Take another shot at him.>Time for Plan B.>Other
>>25707839>>Time for Plan B.If it fails then,>Retreat and regroup. Get some help!
>>25707839>>Take another shot at him.I want him DEAD
What was plan B again?
>>25707839>Time for Plan B.Da fucks plan B?
>>25707839>Time for Plan B.SHOOT EVERYTING
>>25707879>>25707876Nape. If in doubt, apply fire.
I hope that our back up have molotovs or anything else that the Polish Home Army could improvise (armoured cars, flamethrowers, etc.).
>>25707839Well.... you were hoping it wouldn't come to this, but it looks like you've got no choice. You kick down the door leading to the office adjacent to the Chief's, grab a chair, and toss it through the window.That was the easy part.Trying not to look down, you climb out of the window, standing on the perilously narrow ledge ringing the building. You've done this before, under more... discreet circumstances, but you never liked it.>roll 1d20
>>25707839>>Time for Plan B.I hope involves CQC, her strong suit.
Rolled 11>>25708088H-Here I go!
>>25708092then why did people pick to throw a knife instead of getting in up close?
>>25708106Oh yes its time for redemption.
>>25708146I wonder if we can get her a...naah hidden blades are dumb
>>25708184Maybe we give her a tactical tomahawk.
>>25708106aww yeah, time to run down the vertical wallrkides 1141
>>25708116Forgot? I have no idea.
>>25708236if we do, it better not be fucking terrible like the pic you posted
>>25708106Trying not to think about the drop below you, you take a deep breath and quickly slither your way across the wall towards the window leading to the Chief's office. Fortunately for you, the Chief is hunkered behind his desk and is concentrated on the door rather than the window. After all, who would be crazy enough to try and sneak in through the window on the second floor?You quietly slip in and creep up to the chief like a predatory cat. By the time he hears your footfalls, it's too late. Your knife digs into the Chief's back and straight through his heart. He never even knew what hit him.In order to make things hit closer to home, you decide to toss the Chief's body out the window. This is easier said than done, considering the Chief was rather "portly", and you were just fifteen years old. But you manage, and the Chief's body slips out the window and hits the pavement below with a loud SPLAT. You're rather satisfied with the ensuing screaming.Unfortunately, you also hear heavy footsteps outside the office. Taking a peek in to the hallway, your stomach drops when you see four Imp police officers marching their way directly towards you, no doubt answering the now deceased Chief's summons.>Make a run for it.>Stand and fight.>There's an open window right behind you...>Other
>>25708274>There's an open window right behind you...
>>25708274>>There's an open window right behind you...Fuck lets get the hell out of here.
>>25708274>There's an open window right behind you...Time for a dynamic exit.
>>25708274>>There's an open window right behind you...LEAP OF FAITH
>>25708274>>There's an open window right behind you...“Kayguysthat’sitI’mouttaherefuckyouandyourmammaskthxbye!”
>>25708274>There's an open window right behind youJUMP!
>>25708274>>There's an open window right behind you...And the legend begins
>>25708274>Other.Tarin, meet important documents.Door, meet table.After that we can do the window thing again.
>There's an open window right behind you...Pull the guy out if he investigates the window.
>>25708372eh, why not
>>25708274>throw a grenade
Rolled 13>>25708274Thinking quickly, you dash over to the window and vault over. However, you don't immediately drop to the ground. That would just be dumb, like you would ever do that! Instead, you stand on the ledge and try to shimmy you way back to the adjacent office. If only you can get there fast enough...>roll 1d20
Rolled 18>>25708274Let's grab the briefcase of papers he was hastily packing before we make a run for it.Hell, we could just drop the briefcase right outside so that we don't have to carry it!>>25708415>You then toss the gurgling and twitching body aside and kick the door open. You see the large and portly police chief busily trying to cram papers into a briefcase when he looks up at you in shock.
Rolled 17>>25708415less do dis
Also... Somehow this thread already got archived.Was it to forestall the troll that would sometimes archive threads under wrong labels to fuck with people?If so, that'd explain it.>>25708415Also -- please tell me we got the briefcase of papers? We could just throw it, too, rather than needing to risk carrying it.
>>25708435You manage to safely reach the other office, breathing a sigh of relief having narrowly escaped certain death. Then you remember that you left behind that briefcase of obviously important documents."Stupid Tarin!" You scold yourself for making such a rookie mistake. You're better than that!Fortunately, you can still hear the officers in the other room. They're obviously confused that the Chief isn't there."Where the fuck is the Chief?""I dunno!""Oh shit! He fell out the window!""What the-""You three! Go check him out! I'll secure the office!"Peeking out the door, you see three officers dash out the hallway towards the stairs. Peeking into the Chief's office, you can see the briefcase, right there. You can just walk in and snatch it. No harm no fuss.But... but that Imp is just standing at the window, still looking out at the Chief's body. It's just soooooo tempting....>Paragon>Renegade
>>25708576>PargonThe best rune.
>>25708576>ParagonWe shepard nao?
>>25708468>ParagonParagon for life
>>25708576>Paragonit's either you do that now, or you gotta let many bothans die to get it later
>>25708576>Paragonmfw Paragon is actually the "Kill him QUIETLY option" rather than the "Don't push him out the window" option
>>25708576>>Paragonthe task first
>>25708594 Useless without Mantorok.
>>25708625just out of curiosity, what does 'mfw' stand for?
>>25708576>Lower left red.
>>25708663"My face when"It's usually accompanied with a reaction image, but not always.Even if there's no picture though, its generally implied that you've at least reacted in some way to whatever made you post the "mfw" post.
>RenegadeWe partisan nao.
>>25708576However tempted you are, you still feel a twinge of pity. You're not THAT heartless. That and pushing him out the window might just draw more unnecessary attention. You silently sneak in, grab the briefcase, and dash out.At this point, half the station is on fire, and you can see dead Imp police officers littering the floors. You quickly make your escape, linking up with the rest of the partisans. You see your father is there too, much to your relief."Tarin!" You father smiles. "I'm so glad to see you safe!">Just be professional and report your mission results. You're not a kid any more!>He's your dad! Hugs!>Other
>>25708801>>He's your dad! Hugs!Time to Daaaww.

>>25708801>>He's your dad! Hugs!Hug time.
>>25708801No matter what, he'll always be your Dad first and leader second. You run up and hug him as tight as you can."Whoa, hey, Tarin, not in front of the men, it makes me look bad!" Your father laughs. "Okay, let's get out of here!"With that, the partisans all pile into various disguised trucks, which then disperse throughout the city, making it impossible for the authorities to track you all down. They'll eventually link back up at a rendezvous point well outside the city."You did a good job out there, Tarin." You father smiles after hearing you tell your exploits in the station. "Chief Warstrom was one of the crueler Darcsen haters out there. One less to plague us.""So, what now, Dad?" You say, eager for your next assignment.Your father then frowns, which is never a good sign."There won't be another assignment. Not for you."You blink. "Dad, what are you talking about?""I wanted to do this years ago, but I never had the chance to." Your father reaches into the briefcase and pulls out a stack of papers. You realize that they were passports."These things are the real deal. We had a sympathizer print these out for us, but the Chief confiscated them. They're travel papers to Gallia.""But... why would the Chief...""Darcens aren't the only people who want to escape the Empire." Your father says sadly. "Genuine travel papers like these would cost a fortune on the black market.""Then why don't you come-""I can't, Tarin. There's not enough of these for everybody in our group, and I can't just leave them here to fend for themselves." Your father shoves the paper into your hand. "This truck has all of our women and children in it. That way we can fight knowing our loved ones are safe. It's going all the way to Gallia.""But-" You whimper."No buts. You've grown up so fast, Tarin, and that's what hurts me the most." You father sighs. "You've got a chance in Gallia. A chance for a normal life.">O-okay...>But I don't want a normal life!>Other
>>25709303>But I don't want a normal life!
>>25709303>>But I don't want a normal life!"I want to be with you!"
>>25709303>>But I don't want a normal life!
Rolled 12>>25709303>But I don't want a normal life!
>But I don't a normal life (without you/a dad/my hero)
>>25709303"But I don't want a normal life!" You cry. "I just want to be with you.""I'm sorry, Tarin, I didn't want to do this." You father says, taking a deep breath. "As both your father and your superior, I ORDER you stay in this truck until it reaches Gallia. If you disobey, I'll have you tied up. Is that clear."You bite you lip and try to hold back your tears. It's obvious your father isn't enjoying having to say these words, either."Understood." You capitulate."I'm sorry, Tarin. We'll meet again. I promise."Suddenly, you hear a banging noise. You realize it's the driver pounding on the partition between the driver and passenger compartment."That's my cue." You father says, giving you one last hug. "Be brave for me, will you? Make sure this truck gets across the border safe. It's up to you to protect them.""I got it, Dad.""Until we meet again.""Yeah, see you soon, Dad."With that, your father leaps out he back of the truck and waves sadly. You return the wave as he reluctantly closes the door. And soon you're off to Gallia, whatever that is...>And that's Tarin's chapter! Now back to the main story!(cont)
Please let it start with Liz catching the communication that GRA just attacked Lanseal
>>25709670So she can hear them panick over the masked Darscen?
>>25709633You 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 first 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, and figh 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.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. You also took care of a personal mission for Qyburn, and in return, he's given you a new and powerful (if only experimental) weapon! You also captured an Imperial sniper who you convinced to join your cause. You then managed to defeat the Indigo Heron, the Belkan Knight leading the Imperial forces in Ustio (well, technically, it was Isolde who defeated him, but the CO still gets credit!).You then celebrated The Feast of All Saints, giving everybody some presents to strengthen your bonds with them. On that note, Sam now has a puppy she named Wotjek, who you're sure is going to grow up into a beast someday.(cont)
>>25709698Currently, you're sitting bored on top of the Vergeltung's observation deck as you're flanked by a pair of Gallian destroyers. Your initial travel plan was to dock in Anthold so you could go visit Lanseal, Unfortunately, you were stopped by a Gallian Navy blockade, who then directed you to go north, all the way to Marberry, Gallia's northernmost port.That... doesn't bode well at all.You've tried asking the Gallian ships what exactly was going on, but neither of them has answered your requests.Well, that's what you've got a spy for, right?"Elizabeth, is your investigation done, yet?" You ask."Just about...">roll 1d20
>>25709694Nah, we gonna show them how to do a revolution, STURMFUHRER STYLE
>>25709754Well that's good.
>>25709759GOOD THING I HAD SECONDS THOUGHT ABOUT THAT ROLL
>>25709771might be too late judging from the blockade.
>>25709795Unless there are still remnants who kept trying to rekindle their dying cause.
>>25709795Not saying we're gonna be the cavalry that bails Lanseal, but I'm pretty sure Jager and Sam is going to take that attack on Lanseal personally, and we were already planning to help around even if we have to do it pro-bonoThe GRA think they're all galvanized from the acquisition of the Lanseal Artificial Valkyur plans, little do they know what awaits them...
>>25709854They have unleashed the Demons.
>>25709754"Things definitely haven't been going well for the Loyalists." Elizabeth frowns. "Apparently the GRA made a big push and managed to take Randgriz, along with Archduchess Cordelia. The Gallian Army and what's left of the government have evacuated to Ghirlandio.""Shit." You scowl. "What about Lanseal?""I don't know how to put this, Captain, but Lanseal was hit." Elizabeth sighs. "It's still active, but no word on casualties or extent of damage. All secure lines of communication got cut off after Randgriz was taken."You've got an ugly feeling boiling inside you right now. Not only are you deathly worried about Artya and Matt, but for Sam as well. You already know she didn't take the death of her older brother well. What would happen if she had reason to believe her younger when didn't make it, either?>Elizabeth, keep this a secret between us, okay? I don't want to break the news while we're still at sea.>We're going to have to tell everybody. The rumors are already flying around.>Other

>>25709952I sense another reroll opportunity!
>>25709984we need to use one sometime
>>25709878>>25709932If we could incorporate these lines into some speech...
>>25709952The legs are slightly weird.
>>25709883>We're going to have to tell everybody. The rumors are already flying around
>>25710030things haven't gotten that serious yet.
>>25710030No.Every time we've failed a roll we've always came back with a better roll the next action. On top of that, I find failing here and there leads to a better story over 'WIN ALL THE TIME.'
>>25709977They actually got that far, then the Lanseal cadet start making a comeback starting with Anthold iirc
>>25710043I was thinking that too. A little... thick maybe?
>>25710030Honestly I'm saving my vote til Karla vs jager.
>>25710043>>25710081Yeah, I was thinking that... Perspective in motion is one of my many weaknesses. Practise makes improvement, at least!
>>25710100you know, last time we saw here, the villain speak kind of gave off some bad vibes. I'd like to see the two together, but I'm starting to have doubts...
>>25710030Re-rolls are both very... um... small? Direct?You only get to reroll one action, and there's no certainty that it'll succeed.So re-rolls both seem to be very precious, because of how rare they are, but they also seem kind of... underwhelming. And limited in what they can do. It's 1 reroll. No guarantee.If they worked more like Fate points, that might be more exciting.
>>25710126>I'd like to see the two togetherWhy? I mean really, why? She had Jagar parents killed. In what world does someone get over that?
>>25710167eh, shipping tendencies. Not all of them make sense.
>>25710133leave rerolls for critical event flag and/or botch
>>25710126We are a guy whose name sounds like a villain out of a WWII-era Captain America comic, who leads an army of Demons, wandering the battlefields of Europa killing for blood money. We rock traditional villainous symbolism like it's going out of style, a little villainspeak is fitting for one of our possible love interests.
>>25710167I suppose it depends on how much one likes their parents I guess. I know plenty of people that would have a drink with the person afterwards.
>>25710187Yeah, I know.They're much sexier if we use them to re-roll a natural 1 at a critical moment. But still...
>>25709952Oh god, you included the cat ears, too!But yeah, I agree that the legs look kinda wonky.>>25709883"I guess we're going to have to tell everybody about this." You sigh. "The rumors are already starting to spread, and there's nothing worse to morale than rampant rumormongering.""That's true." Elizabeth nods. "It's always a commander responsibility to not only give good news, but the bad as well.""Yeah, just don't tell anybody about it before I do, okay?""Sure thing. Just to let you know, we're all worried about Artya and Matt as well. You and Sam aren't alone in this.""Thanks."You reluctantly make your way down into the depths of the Vergeltung. You suppose you should break the news to Sam first, in private. The last thing you need is to have her break down in public. Officers always have to put up a strong front, after all.You find Sam in her office, busy trying to train Wojtek. He's already managed to learn a few basic commands, but Sam, being the perfectionist that she is, isn't satisfied until the little puppy can literally understand every word in the dictionary."Oh, hey Cap!" Sam says happily as you enter. "Just teaching Wojtek how to shake. See?"Wojtek then raises his little paw in the air, prompting you to shake it."Good boy!" Sam cooes, giving Wojtek a treat to nibble on.Seeing her so happy like this... it makes you feel really bad that you're going to ruin everything for her.>Break it to her slow. Ease into it.>Just get it out of the way and tell her.>ABORT>Other
>>25710167Dunno really, not sure how the Karla fans could think of it as they're merely treating it as if their tank was painted blue.
>>25710232>>Break it to her slow. Ease into it.

>>25710232>Break it to her slow. Ease into it.Got to do it. But doesn't mean we have to punch her in the gut with it.
>>25710232>Just get it out of the way and tell her.It's like ripping off a bandaid guys. Dragging it out just makes it hurt more.
>>25710232>Just get it out of the way and tell her.We're mercenaries, professional soldier, and we have already foreseen things taking turn for the worse in the civil war, this just move our schedule. Get ready to tell the demons that christmas just got cancelled

>>25710230This quest writes itself on critical moments though
>>25710081There's also the seeming lack of hip articulation/joints...
>>25710232You decide to take it slow, not wanting to punch Sam in the emotional gut right away."So... I just managed to find out why we got rerouted from Anthold." You say in your best casual voice. "It looks like the GRA's been gaining ground.""Yeah, but there's plenty of ports between Anthold and Marberry that we could use. Why would.... oh crap." Sam blinks at the realization. "How far did they get?""Randgriz. They even got Archduchess Cordelia hostage.""Shit. Dad's going to be pissed." Sam shakes her head. "I suppose he's lucky he got transferred to Ghirlandio to oversee its reconstruction.""Yeah, that's where I heard the government and military HQ got transferred to after Randgriz fell.""Well, I guess he got what he wanted." She sighs. "A chance to prove himself as a general.""There's also something else..." You sigh, preparing for the massive storm that was rolling in. "Lanseal was attacked."You see Sam just freeze in place, like she was suddenly turned into a statue. Wojtek also feels the change in mood and whimpers in sympathy."H-ha ha, that's f-funny Cap, you can stop joking now!" Sam laughs awkwardly, her denial kicking in at full force.>Let her come to grips with it on her own.>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.>Other
>>25710700>>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.thought it needed to be said twice.
>>25710700>>Let her come to grips with it on her own.
>>25710700>Let her come to grips with it on her own.
>>25710700>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.
>>25710700>>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.Give her a straight face.
>>25710700>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.Sorry kid.
>>25710700Just hug her. Shit, this is gonna suck.
>>25710700>>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.
>>25710735Second.Then proceed to assure her our next set of orders will include "Drive on Lanseal" and there are orders are orders.
>>25710700>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious."Do you think I'd joke around with something like that? Prepare to mobilize"
>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.>For all we know, Lanseal might have repelled the invasion due to Artya alone, have faith.
>other - "I wish I were joking, but no..."
>>Let her know that you are dead fucking serious.The only problem that we have with moving on Lanseal is that there's no one paying us for this job. Don't think the other Demons will go pro-bono. Not all of them are Gallian.
>>25710836I like this.
"I wouldn't joke about this, Sam."
>>25710852Some level of patriotism on most of the squad, and freeing sovereign from imprisonment tend to get you all sort of reward.
>>25710900That and we have spare cash. Enough to last 2-3 missions.
>>25710919wait, how much cash, exactly?
>>25710927From the pastebin:CURRENT TREASURY: 4050 creditsCURRENT UPKEEP COSTS: 2160 credits per mission
>>25710927Ever heard the phrase "King's ransom"?
>>25710949Uh.... wrong thread right?
>>25710949You missed the thread by a bit.
>>25710955Oh hell. our upkeep went up more then I thought.
>>25710984You know I've been trying to get people not to spend all the money at once but...
>>25710984NOW DO YOU GET WHY YOU DON"T PISS AWAY ALL THE MONEY ON GEAR?
>>25711013You're not the only one. It's a miracle we were able to curb /tg/'s spending for this long. The last shopping choices we had, most players wanted to outright use up all our creds in one go.
>>25710984Yeah... submarine might cost some money to maintain.
>>25710984Like I said, no one is paying us for this.
>>25711061True, but what coffers does the GRA have? The Gassenarls are influential, they should have a bunch of loot.
>>25711033Yeah, I was there asking "what the fuck' during that. If one thing I've learn with /tg/ in quest is that no one (or at least most of the players) seem to have no forethought.
>>25710984We just went all Santa on their asses, and this job is gonna be fueled by a shitton of thing ranging from personal connection to Artya/Matt, anti-GRA sentiment, and/or just sense of patriotism to the motherland, plus the GRA army are nobility funded, there'd be sufficient loot and salvage if it comes to that
>>25711087The Gassenarls are getting Fed support, remember?
>>25711092>there'd be sufficient loot and salvageLets not count on that at all. Remember last time you people were loot happy?
>>25711059The sub doesn't have any upkeep.
Next time, just pick the best two out of the upgrades we can buy. Or if it's particularly expensive, just pick that one.Unless we manage to raid some noble's coffers for a fuckton of jewgold, I don't see us paying our upkeep for more than two battles without income.
>>25711116Federation equipment going into the armoury then!
>>25710700You harden your expression, letting her know that the time for jokes has long been over, and that you are dead fucking serious about what you're saying."Sam. Lanseal got hit. We don't know how bad, but we know it's still standing." You say simply. "There's a good chance Artya and Matt got out of it fine.""No... nononononono!" Sam clutches her head, obviously on the verge of losing it. "Can't lose Matt, not again, not again-!"This is not good. You've got to snap her out of it.>Slap her.>Hug her.>Other
>>25711116And that's ANOTHER thing, we show up and piss on a plan cooked up by a bunch of high-up Federation people...contracts will dry up a LOT.
>>25711130>Unless we manage to raid some noble's coffers for a fuckton of darcsengold, I don't see us paying our upkeep for more than two battles without income.ftfy
>>25711146>>Slap her then hug her.
>>25711140but typical fed stuff isn't that high quality.>>25711146>>Hug her.
>>25711146>Hug her.The Hug God is getting his fill tonight.
>>25711146>>Slap her.Time for a bright slap
>>25711146>Slap her.She needs a shock. Not a hug.
>>25711146>Hug her."He's fine. He's got Artya with him. If rampaging laser-shooting meta zombies can't kill her, some GRA punks can't either".
>>25711146>>25711167Yeah pretty much. Need to get her out this and understand that she isn't alone in this.
>>25711146I'll second >>25711167
>>25711146>Hug her.>Tell her our plans.Assuming we're done in Ustio, we'll make with all best speed for Lanseal if possible.
>>25711146Shake hug her.I'd say slap but we aren't bright noa and she's not a newtype.
>>25711146>Hug her then slap her then hug her again.The ensuing confusion in her head is sure to snap her out of it.
>>25711148But if we send news to the Federation news networks, let's just say the citizens will be surprised that their government is funding a civil war.>>25711168But at least it is easily replaceable. Just keep the things that we can afford to be cheap.
>>25711146>Slap her.SNAP OUT OF IT
>>25711146>OtherWhat was Sam's position again? Lieutenant? Address her as such, start talking business
>hug herWe may be cold blooded mercenaries, but we're not monsters
>>25711211Fighting confusion with more confusion!
>>25711146>>Hug her."Sam, get your head straight. Matt was with Artya, and we both know what kind of survivor she is. We need to hit the ground running, and collect up our own. We need to be strong"
>>25711146>Slap her.And in the bluntest most ordery tone of voice we can. "Get it together Sam, I need you to keep your head on straight. I need you for this and I can't have you lose it or jump to conclusions like this."
>>25711146>>Hug her."I heard of Matt from you Sam. He won't die from just this. Have faith in your brother."
>>25711225Bad idea. The last thing Gallia needs is to get tangled up even more in Fed politics. That's the worst thing that could happen, with the Imps looking for another chance to invade.
Nothing good can come from this...>threaten to take away her puppy
>>25711146>Slap her.brightslap.jpg>>25711238We're also not baby sitters she's a soldier and we can't baby every soldier every time they're worried or sad
>>25711225The Fed is supporting Gassenarl
>>25711313Best not to here. This is more shock then anything so we need her to calm down. A slap is more likely to upset.
>>25711146>>Hug her.Hug it out
>>25711225>But if we send news to the Federation news networks, let's just say the citizens will be surprised that their government is funding a civil war.Yeah, that's not gonna happen. There's going to be gag orders, 'offical' stories, and the big boys will send the word down the ranks that the Demons are NOT to be hired or worse, that we're Imp sympathizers. Doesn't matter what the truth is. These are people who can make lives very very difficult as long as they stay hidden in the shadows behind their big desks.Right now, we're a solution. They also consider the GRA to be a solution to the Gallia problem. If we become a problem for them, then they'll make OUR lives VERY unpleasant, and they're the ones who pay the people who pay US.
>>25711353I'm going to have to agree to disagree with you in my experience when someone is losing their shit a kick to the dick or in this case a bright slap tends to snap them back to rational thinking real quick.
>>25711384Even if our contract ran dry, if we get Cordelia out, we can be her personal spec-ops, god knows Gallia has a shitton of problems that need taken care of, and government job always pays
>>25711409Agreed normally. But very situation based. Most of the time that works in my experience is with stress that builds up over time. This is more emotional where it has a much higher chance of backfiring we need her to get it out emotionally now. But yeah agree to disagree.
>>25711146You hug Sam as tight as you can, in an effort to reassure her. Sure, you normally wouldn't do this in the military, but you weren't in the military, so you don't give a damn about all that regulation bullshit."Sam, get your head straight. Matt was with Artya, and we both know what kind of survivor she is. We need to hit the ground running, and collect up our own. We need to be strong""A-alright." Sam tries to stem the tears. "I don't want to lose another brother, Cap! Never again!""I know." You say reassuringly. "The GRA will burn. I'll make sure of it.">Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.>Just stay like this for a little while longer....>Other
>>25711483>>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.

>>25711483>Just stay like this for a little while longer....Or just pick her up in a hug and make our way to inform the others.
>>25711483>>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.We got work to do guys.
>>25711483>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.Order Wojtek to keep Sam from breaking down.
>>25711483>>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.Make sure shes ok then head out.

>>25711483>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.At least until she visibly calms down. Then we go inform the rest.
>>25711483>>Just stay like this for a little while longer....maybe he could use the hug as well, it's not easy being Jager.
>>25711483>>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.First thing we need is Elizabeth on intel. Anything out of Lanseal, and also we need a landing zone as close as possible. I'm being meta here, but if there was any time for her to contact 'The Falcon of Gallia' it's now. Meeting him and his 'partner' would be a hoot.
>>25711483>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about thisHead to the bridge, we got a speech to give
>>25711627Maybe a certain fighter from VC3 of the 422 would like to challenge the Knightpuncher later.
>>25711650We don't need to give a speech...
>>25711483>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this.Don't want to get accused of harassment.
>>25711673>implying Sam would ever accuse him of that.
>>25711483Break the hug
>>25711483>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this."You gotta be strong for me Sam. We have a a civil war to win."
>>25711673>>25711686"Sam, I want to keep hugging you, but I think this is technically sexual harassment.""But Cap, who am I going to report you to? Yourself?""Good point."
>>25711721You. I like you.
Any idea how we'll fight the GRA once we land in the north? We have to travel quiet a bit south to get to Randgriz so we have a high possibility of fighting.
>>25711721>Pat her on the ass - "Go get em tiger!"
>>25711772I was thinking surgical strikes at key points/individuals, we have the mobility and speed to do that sort of work.
>>25711819We need to do a straight punch through to Lanseal. It has our targets, troops we can regroup with, and they know more about the Very Nasty Surprise the Demons are going to get when they face down their first V2.
>>25711772Why do we even care about the blockade anyway, we're like the only non-imperial with a fucking U-boat, and only Albion and Imperials have any way to counter it at the moment
>>25711483>Break the hug. You need to tell the rest of the Demons about this."Demons! I know you all know why we're here. Over the last months we've found ourselves accompanied by people who aren't Gallians, but that is no concern of ours. We are the Demons of Randgriz. These rebels saw it fit to desecrate our namesake; Gallians or not we don't stand for such a disgrace. Not only that Lanseal, the new home of our dearest Artya was attacked. It's a shame then because Lanseal would be the last stone that blocked the gates of hell.Our path is clear then, we go forward to liberate Randgriz then onto the very heart of the rebels. When we're done House Gassernarl will stand in ruin!"Hope that enough.
>>25711858Plus, I kind of want to see Qyburn go apeshit on Foerster when he sees her.
>>25711899If we can hopefully find her in the first place.
>>25711911I was under the impression that she left the academy after the attack. In canon. Or am I mistaken?
>>25711935You are correct. She is one tough bitch to track down...
>>25711858RAMIREZ, TEAR THOSE FUCKERS WITH YOUR BARE HANDS
>>25711966But there is a living specimen for the Artificial Valkyria at Lanseal, so she'll probably stay, right?
>>25711935>>25711966She more or less gets away and vanishes to cause trouble another day, who knows about this timeline.But she is by far the biggest karma houdini in the series.
>>25711995Unless she left beforehand in this canon.
>>25712011Well where ever and whenever she reappears, there will be someone to screw up her plans.
>>25712011She's just an enabler though, hardly really done anything overly malicious on her own volition
>>25712057Other than being a total and complete BITCH to Aliasse. And that, my friend, is unforgivable.
>>25712103Worst Valkyria in the series, big fucking deal
>>25712057She had no issues with experimenting on whoever she was provided and a lost life wouldn't weight much on her conscious. As long as she's around the whole concept of artifical Valkyur and using the real thing as nothing more than human weapons will always be a possibility. And odds are she'd tempt whoever she runs into using such projects.>>25712103That too, she didn't care much for someone who basically loved her like a mother.
>>25711995>But there is a living specimen for the Artificial Valkyria at Lanseal, so she'll probably stay, right?Possibly, but Strawberry is hardly her ideal candidate, especially now that she has an 'attachment' to Zeri. Did the headmaster still eat a bullet?
Forgot to mention, if there are any Valkyria in our group, they will probably have the largest or above average bust size.
>>25712129compared to half of the antagonist in the series, she at least manage to have some degree of competence and most of the bad thing she did just kinda come with the character quirk of being a mad scientist.nothing overly dickish, i mean sure she has no moral in her pursuit of science, but our R&D head created a village of ragnite zombies
>>25712183>R&D head created a village of ragnite zombiesand could have created many things worse, good thing we burned that book...
>>25712156I was under the impression that all the women in our little group, while lookers, are not all well endowed. Maybe a C cup at the most.
>>25712115>big fucking deal>treats a human being, one who thinks of her as a mother, like nothing more than a test subjectYou are a horrible person if you honestly don't think that abusive parents deserve horrid punishment.
So I think at this point we've been hugging for a while...
>>25712228I don't think we've been given any kind of info in that department...
>>25712200and gifted him another notebook to fill
>>25712228I'm sure Elizabeth has that information hidden away somewhere...
>>25712183the lack of morals at all can be quite severe as most villains have some sort of morals.He came to REGRET it while she has no such regrets other than she didn't find a perfect subject.She's basically the snake that tempts to eat the apple, the headmaster woudln't have gotten the idea of artifical Valkyur if not for her.>>25712228If any character's a Valkyur candiate it'd be Karla.
>>25712228Alicia wasn't packing, and she's probably the strongest Valkyria in the series
>>25712267I have a growing feeling that if we fight Karla, it'll be a duel starting with pistols, then switching to sabres until first blood, then hand to hand combat for last.
>>25712228just to further expand upon this, Darscens are not known for curves and I get the impression Julia's petite and Sam's more moderate. Elsa is hard to say, but Alek would know best.>>25712285In the game, she was nicely endowed (just her outfit wasn't making them stick out) and in the promotional materials, she's about on par.That and it's very clear in VC2 that her future daughter will not be going thirsty any time soon.
>>25712267and if it wasn't for her, Gallia would probably be just a crater in the ground right now, so it's not like she doesn't have any inadvertent contribution to the greater cycle of karma
>>25712344But this Darcsen has a nice ass:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fxo9XXqcnBE
>>25712200True, but OUR guy has a soul. I prefer to think of it as Oppenheimer vs Mengele. Cause face it, her experiments are flawed crap and her method and procedures are a joke. If you know a lot of the VC3 lore, Calamity Raven was a MUCH more legitimate Think Tank than Foerster's stuff. (There's implication that CR made the Rhum that Selvaria uses.) Not to mention CR discovered and reactivated a Valkyrur ICBM silo. Qyburn knows he's created horrible things and believes in their use for war, but knows that he's done horrible things and tries to at least keep them in check!Actually, I'm a little intrigued now, did Dahau and Calamity Raven ever have any contact with Qyburn?
>>25712391Maybe, but most of them are from the Empire and Qyburn is from Utsio which is Fed territory, so I don't think so.
>>25712357You forgot that was her days with the Imperials and her gifting of the Valkyrian stuff to Reilia was basically more data gathering than any act of good. That and she was basically responsible for the valkyrian reasearch the empire knew (and basically help made Selvaria the TMoMD everyone knows her as)IIRC she left the empire after the events of VC1/VC3 and wound up at Lanseal.
>>25712477I'm not saying that Qyburn was a member, but maybe he traded letters with some CR members.But we're derailing the plot. I apologize Merc.
>>25711483>Just as a note, Foerster leaves the school just like canon. After seeing what she was capable of, Julianna was no longer interested in staying a artificial valkyria.You finally decide to break the hug, but you still keep your hands on Sam's shoulders, just in case."You got your head on straight now, Sam?" You ask."Y-yeah." Sam nods."Good, because I have to break the news to the rest of the Demons and I am not looking forward to that AT ALL." You sigh. "Just... just take a break, okay? No paperwork or anything like that. Just play with Wojtek. That's an order.""Yes, Cap." Sam nods solemnly.You then head back to the Vergletung's bridge, where you take the shipwide intercom from Davos and take a deep breath."Demons, crew of the Vergeltung, I know many of you are not native to Gallia, but I feel I must tell all of you this. As you all know, Gallia is in the midst of a civil war between the Loyalists and the Gallian Resistance Army. Today, I have found out that both Randgriz and Lanseal have been attacked by the GRA. This means that we have no idea what the status is on Artya and Sam's brother Matt. That said, I'm making it my personal mission o END the GRA, whether we're being paid or not. I can't force you to fight with me for free, but I'll pay you out of my own pocket if I have to. We'll be in port in a few hours. That is all."You sigh as you put down the intercom. That was a rough announcement to make."I understand how hard it is, sir." Davos says apologetically. "I always took it hard when I had to announce ship sinkings."The rest of the trip is spent in a sort of awkward silence. Nobody really knew what to say, but shit, you needed something to take your mind off things.>Get up top. Get some fresh air.>See what Qyburn has been up to in the past few months.>Other
>>25712609>>See what Qyburn has been up to in the past few months.

>>25712630by the gods, YES!
>>25712630This is good, seeing as we just promised to pay everyone out of our own pocket if needed for the next bit.
>>25712630Hot dam those Ustian DID pay well
>>25712630EVERYONE CALM DOWN AND DON"T SPEND ANYTHING.
>>25712712FUCK YOU. THROW ALL THE MONEY AT QY. ALL OF IT.
>>25712609>>See what Qyburn has been up to in the past few months.But let's not get crazy with the limit issue stuff but rather stuff that can be used widely.
Once we finish with this GRA nonsense, let's have a R&R episode! RAMIREZ LOOK AT DAT DARCSEN ASS!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fxo9XXqcnBE
>>25712671>>25712712Agreed. Please. Think before you act...
>>25712725yeah, we need those basic gun upgrades
>DOSHDon't know how long we will need to operate so lets keep most of the cash in reserve. Focus on basic upgrades that we will get the most use out of.
>>25712744I'll agree on the Gallian rifle/sub machine gun upgrades, but nothing else. We can save any R&D after we're done with this little trip to Gallia....or if we somehow manage to free some evil noble of his coffers. Then we can spend as much as we want.
>>25712799Considering the only person we really answer to in Gallia is Cordelia since she's the one that sanctioned our mercenary activities, I'd imagine there wouldn't be too much problem on cleaning out the GRA's coffer if it comes down to that. I mean they're massacring darcsen and killing schoolchildren, I don't think we'll ever find easier targets
>>25712609In order to take your mind off things, you decide to head to Qyburn's lab, where he no doubt has something new to distract you with."Ah Captain, I'm sorry about the bad news." Qyburn shakes his head. "And just when I had new equipment to show off to you, too!(cont)
>>25712852So they're essentially Nazis who we can kill without regret?
>>25712868Oh, god. Here we go.Control yourselves, /tg/.
>>25712868GEAR:Gallian-A Rifle - 1000Modified with a water cooling jacket, the Gallian-A is quite a bit heavier than the standard Gallian-1, but allows for a much faster firing rate.Gallian-S - 1000A rifle with an extended barrel, increasing accuracy and range.Theimer Anti-tank Lance - 1000A lance specialized to take down armor. Improved accuracy and armor penetration, but incompatible with frag rounds.Mags M10 - 1000The addition of a water cooled barrel to this SMG vastly improves fire rate and stopping power.Flamethrower Attachment - 1000A portable flamethrower that can be added on to most submachine guns, which can lay down a stream of destructive ragnite flames. Shocktroopers only.Rifle Grenade Attachment - 1000A modification for rifles that allows them to fire grenades over much larger distances. Scouts only.Antipersonnel Mine - 1000A simple mine that can be planted anywhere to act as a booby trap.Howitzer Team - UPKEEP: 600Mercenaries armed with a 105mm howitzer that can provide long range fire support.
>>25712883Lets get a whole lot of nothing
>>25712871>So they're essentially Nazis who we can kill without regret?Well, they're ALSO our countrymen who've been swayed by a silver tongue and false promises. In VC2 you can get a guy to defect from the GRA.
>>25712883Buy it. All of it.
>>25712871Yep, complete with their collection of loots, riches and supplies for being supported almost entirely by nobility and federation puppeteer
>>25712883Gallian-A Rifle (1000), Mags M10 (1000).2000 total. That's it. No more than this.
>>25712883my vote is for>Theimer Anti-tank Lance - 1000>Mags M10 - 1000>Gallian-S - 1000and maybe>Rifle Grenade Attachment - 1000
>>25712883R&DSpiderweave Armor (PROTOTYPE) - 1200Constructed out artificial fibers several times stronger than steel, this cloth armor provides superior protection to standard Scout armor with no additional weight.War Emergency Power (PROTOTYPE) - 2000By disabling the mechanical limiters built into vehicle engines as well as injecting more efficient coolant directly into the engine, total horsepower is nearly doubled. However, has a high chance of damaging said engines.High Velocity Armor Piercing Ammo - 1500Specialized AP ammo that trades out the standard steel penetrator with tungsten, vastly increasing armor penetration with minimal change in weight. However, tungsten is a rare resource, so equipping HVAP increases a vehicle's upkeep by 200.Reinforced Chassis - 2000Allows the Gallian Tank Destroyer to mount the 88mm cannon.Fenrir Heavy Upgrade Package - 6000Upgrades the Type-36 Medium Tank to a Type-36 Heavy tank. Also includes one master upgrade.
>>25712883>Mags M10 - 1000>Gallian-S - 1000That's it. We can still pay for four missions without a source of income with this.Also, ask Qyburn if he can somehow finickle around that Theimer for it to be able to use frag rounds too.
>>25712926NOTHING GET NOTHING
>>25712883Gallian-SNothing else.We've got enough we can afford a single squad upgrade, and we're a bit overdue for it.
>>25712883Theimer Anti-tank Lance - 1000Rifle Grenade Attachment - 1000Antipersonnel Mine - 1000 x 2Gallian-S - 1000
>>25712927I'll second this
>>25712924>Theimer Anti-tank Lance - 1000No, a waste. They can't use frags with them. The frag rounds have proven without a doubt to be useful.
>>25712883I say:>Gallian-S - 1000>Flamethrower Attachment - 1000>Reinforced Chassis - 2000
>>25712926>Fenrir Heavy Upgrade Package - 6000Sweet Jesus....no. No. Hold out until we're out of Gallia.Until we're out of Gallia.
>>25712883I vote we get the A rifles for our company, especially since so many of them use it.
>>25712926>Fenrir Heavy Upgrade Package - 6000Reinforced Chassis - 2000Tank goodness!
>>25712883SIXTEEN HOWITZER TEAMS.But seriously, we should just get the Gallian-S. Maybe, MAYBE an upgrade to our tank that isn't the Fenrir.
>>25712919going with this, we might not be getting paid for a while
>>25712943>>25712958Wow. Stop posting please.
>>25712958>>25712943Hell no, what part of not spending all the damn money do you not understand?
Who uses what weapon? Snipers and Lancers are clear, but I'm not sure about the others.>Also includes one master upgrade.What does that mean?
>>25712883definitely get the weapon upgrade for scout and shock along with attachment, that's 4000?I'd at least like the mags and flamethrower, maybe the launcher but it seem our scouts have been CQCing a bunch of shit lately
>>25712943>>25712958and you can fuck right off
People remember that we're going to be paying our own upkeep for the next couple of battles with no source of income.Don't get to crazy with the purchases.
>>25712926Since we only have one 88 cannon, what would happen to the Fenrir?
>>25712883>Gallian-A Rifle - 1000>Modified with a water cooling jacket, the Gallian-A is quite a bit heavier than the standard Gallian-1, but allows for a much faster firing rate.>Mags M10 - 1000>The addition of a water cooled barrel to this SMG vastly improves fire rate and stopping power.Scouts can't exactly afford longer range if they want a knock out punch.
>>25712883>Gallian-S - 1000>A rifle with an extended barrel, increasing accuracy and range.Mags M10 - 1000The addition of a water cooled barrel to this SMG vastly improves fire rate and stopping power.Flamethrower Attachment - 1000A portable flamethrower that can be added on to most submachine guns, which can lay down a stream of destructive ragnite flames. Shocktroopers only.
>>25712927Thirding this. Please, /tg/. Use your brains for a bit.
>>25712981That's why I say two upgrades >Gallian-A Rifle (1000), Mags M10 (1000).or >Mags M10 (1000) Gallian-S (1000)One of these and no more.
>>25712974armor, weapon, or mobility iircVC1 edelweiss have 3 possible "final" upgrade, but you can only choose 1The cannon iirc used fucking depeleted ragnite roundI take it we can't use the ingame combo of scope+flamethrower to set up flame whip of death on Kilroy? :(
>>25712883>Rifle Nade>Gallian S>Mags M10I think is a good mix. Flamethrower as well if we want to get extravagent.
>>25712883>Howitzer Team - UPKEEP: 600>Mercenaries armed with a 105mm howitzer that can provide long range fire support.Must be all women and always seriously sober (sisters of battle expy)
>>25713033if they were SoB expies, they'd forgo the support and probably make a charge. With flamethrowers...
>>25712927Instead of getting Qyburn to modify the lance, just get a motorized vehicle for the lancers. That way they can reposition faster and carry both types of lance with them.
>>25713033We already have mortar bros, I'd rather focus on flat out upgrades on the frontliner's BnBAlso, Elsa is gonna be usable in Gallia right? does she have her own custom Ace Weapon?
>>25712926Don't buy shit. We need the money for paying upkeep.
Some math.11890 What we have | 2160 Upkeep11890/2160 = 5 missions(11890-2000)/2160 = 4 missions (11890-3000)/2160 = 4 missionsAnything pass that will put us into only being able to pay for 3 or less missions. This assumes the upkeep doesn't go up any time soon.
Do any of the Demon's know how to drive a vehicle? This would be beneficial if we get infantry transport.
While saving money is nice, so is improving the basic core of our forces as a better offense can be a better defense.
>>25713093I got a feeling there'd be a bunch of those to commandeer once we get into conflict with >>25713093GRA
>>25713100The problem is we're most likely not getting paid for any of the missions for a bit (most likely) we do need to save money somewhere. Two-Three upgrades at 1000 a pop will still help us over all and allow us to pay for at least 4 missions. Again assuming we don't see the upkeep go up.
>>25713084Ok, in that case, we should probably beef up infantry. Get the Lance and the Gallian S.
>>25713125I'm the one who merely voted for a better scout rfile and a better Sub machine gun, nothing more.
>>25713134> LanceThat lance is shit. Again see >>25712948
>>25713144Same. Ugh. I just people really need to do the math and think for a bit.
>>25713145sorry, must have missed that.
>>25713145Yeah they can use frags, but every anti TANK lance shot we miss is very painful. We already have a lot of other infantry suppression from our two tanks and mortar crew.Theimer is 1000, we have two lancers. The only other upgrade in that vein is the 88 for the tank destroyer which is twice as expensive.
>>25713125We're mercenaries, our enemies are basically a group of old fashioned bigot and foreign power puppetteer, and their MO include massacring darcsens and attacking schoolchildren and they just took over the rightful sovereign, we have every justification in the book to just pillage and loot the shit out of every combat we get into, I don't think our economical status is nearly that dire that we couldn't upgrade at least the troopers with better gun to doubletap bitches with
>>25713196We are also a former noble. Like someone said in a past thread. The only looting that befits our status is taking nobles' sons hostage and ransoming them.
>>25713196It's like you didn't read my statement at all.One. I said a few core upgrades are wroth it.Two. Thinking that looting will solve all our money problems is a load of shit. That's not going to pay for all the bills so stop thinking it will.
>>25713125Yeah this. We can go 3000 because we don't really run any lower on missions we can do.Which is why I want that flamer. So we can burn shit.
>>25713224R-Nades would be worth getting more really, personally.
>>25713236Dunno getting something in the full stream of a flamethrower fire can be pretty damaging, even to armored things in the right spots.But I decided against it in favor of a better SMachine gun.
>>25713214Jager's a fallen noble, last of his line, I don't think he really cares
>>25713196Spoils of war and all that, but how are you going to liquidate them into cash? There is no market that we know of.>>25713236I'd suggest Theimer, Flamerthrowers and AP mines personally. That gives us better infantry scale antitank power, room clearing and area denial. I get the feeling we will be doing a LOT of urban combat in this theater.
>>25712926>Gallian-S and Mags M10 purchased!>Treasury is now at 9890After making your purchases, the Vergeltung finally pulls into Marberry Harbor. Immediately, you see the harbor has become a hub of military activity. There are troops and military equipment scattered everywhere.However, waiting for you on the dock seems to be an older fellow wearing a Gallian general's uniform. You assume that he's the one in charge around here."Ah, the famed Captain Jager Sturmfuhrer." The general salutes you.>Do I know you?>Wow, so my reputation has even reached here?>Other
>>25713214with the shit the GRA is doing, Jager ain't holding anything back, he will burn them to the ground and salt the earth
>>25712883Theimer definitely, I don't know about the others but we're going to need the Theimer against those Artificial Valkyria.
>>25713299>>Do I know you?lets be professional, no need to let the ego lead us
>>25713299>Do I know you?
>>25713299>>Wow, so my reputation has even reached here?Our reputation precedes us.
>>25713299>Do I know you?Who are you?
>>25713299>Do I know you?inb4 it's Sam's dad
>Do I know you?We're not in Ghirlandio so this isn't Sam's dad. Introductions first I guess?>acadenemies tscapadescaptcha knows whats up.
>>25713299>>Do I know you?
>>25713332That's what I'm thinking but IC I don't think we've seen Sams dad. Eh.
>>25713299C'mon Ramsey Crowe!
>>25713400>C'mon Ramsey Crowe!Oh please yes, a thousand times over.
>>25713299"I'm sorry, do I know you?" You ask."Most likely not, but I know of you." The general smirks. "I make it a habit of mine to research the men my daughter is interested in."Oh, OH. Now things made sense. This man was Sam's father. You vaguely remember her mentioning that he was a Gallian general."It's a pleasure to meet you, sir." You say, returning the salute."Oh, I'm feeling anything but pleasure." General Wellings sighs. "I turn my back for one second, and next thing I know, half of Gallia, Randgriz included, is suddenly in GRA hands.""I suppose you're in charge, then?" You ask."With the Archduchess being held prisoner, and no new Prime Minister appointed, the General of the Central Armies is next in line of succession... so yes, you can say I'm in charge of Gallia right now, or at least what's left of it." Wellings shakes his head. "By the way, can I see my daughter?">Sure thing.>Actually you should probably give her some time.>Other
>>25713485>Sure thingHe can probably tell Sam that Matt's okay
>>25713485>>Actually you should probably give her some time.It might be too soon.
>>25713485>You should probably give her some time, but I'm not going to stop you if you want to.
>>25713485>>Sure thing.family reunion should do some good.
>>25713485>Sure thing.I'm not one to deny family rights here. Though I will say she does know of the attack on the school. That's all we could fish out of the network.
>>25713485>Sure thing.>Actually you should probably give her some time."Sure. But at least let her have some time to herself right now. I had to tell her about Lanseal."
>>25713485>Sure thing.make sure to mention the fact that she just heard about Lanseal
>>25713485>Actually you should probably give her some time.Although letting him see her might bring her spirits up some
>>25713485"Sure thing. But has there been any word from Lanseal? We're all concerned about Matt and some other cadets we know, Sam most of all."
>>25713485>Other>Have you heard anything from Lanseal?If yes >SureIf not >You should wait a bit
>>25713485"If you have good news concerning Lanseal, it would really help right about now..."
Oh it is him, I thought he was just A general, not THE general.Ask about Lanseal on the way to Sam.
>>25713485"As you could probably guess she didn't take the news about Lanseal well, we don't know anything beyond them being attacked and no communications since, she's worried about Matt. She might need some time before seeing anyone. But I'll leave that decision up to you."
If we're not getting paid for this job, the Gallian military would at least help on maintenance and upkeep right? or are we still gonna be draining the same amount of ducat per mission?
>>25713597That's all wrapped into our upkeep, I believe.
>>25713597At this point the army has it's balls in a vice and now is the time for desperate measures not usually considered, like raising the militia to fight other Gallians and hiring mercs.I'm sure we could work out a deal of some sort, depends on how the paperwork is worded.
>>25713627Errr... Miss read what you said. No. Not likely.
I wonder if we can pass off the Demons as household troops or the like... Basically, rather than a mercenary company, they are "the soldiers Lord Stormfuhrer has gathered together to support/defend Gallia." ?>>25713597Hmm... Wonder if we can do more somehow....Hey, I wonder if we can take the Vergeltung to do some hunting/privateering? (Is it still privateering if you're part of the military? ... Wait, ARE we going to be part of the military? Gah.)Does the GRA have a navy? Because if it does -- well, we might be the only ones in Gallia that have an actual SUBMARINE.We can make use of that.
>>25713627 So, wait...I'm trying to remember the timeline. Has Gilbert had that little 'argument' with his son? Because if he has, then the WHOLE thing has changed. Cause then there's a Fed Ambassador who needs rescuing from Crazy McRacist Pants Who Wears A Stupid Tiara. Deals can be made.
>>25713669Lets not work with meta alright?
>>25713485"Yeah, I'll call her over." You say. "But she's still a bit shaken up from hearing about what happened at Lanseal.""Ah yes, I feared that would happen." Wellings frowns. "Samantha is terribly protective of Matthew. She's far too hard on herself whenever something happens to him.""Have you heard anything new from Lanseal?""Not much." Wellings frowns. "We lost communication when we had to evacuate Army HQ. We're trying to set up a secure comm line, but it's proving difficult. But we do know for a fact that they're active. My scouts are reporting that the GRA's frontline units are suffering supply shortages, which means their supply lines are getting hit.""That's encouraging." You nod."D-dad!" Sam comes running down the gangplank and hugs him, ignoring all military decorum. "Where's Matt?! Do you know if he's okay?!""I just told Captain Sturmfuhrer. We're not sure, but it's fairly likely he is. At the very least, Lanseal still has military capability from what we can determine, so their casualties can't have been that severe.""O-okay...." Sam nods, not entirely convinced."Well, if you don't mind, I'm going to be busy blazing a path down to Lanseal, or Castle Gassenarl. Whichever one we come across first." You scowl."I'm afraid I can't let you do that." Wellings shakes his head. "Southern Gallia is a black hole. We have no idea what's going on down there, and we have other matters up here that require our attention.""YOUR attention." You say. "We're not Gallian military, we don't have to follow your orders.""No, you follow the person who hires you." >Is that an offer?>We're going down there no matter what you say.>Other
>>25713680Well, the word would have gotten out that Gilbert had been assassinated by Gallian Loyalists and was now a martyr for the cause and his brave children were carrying on his dream of a Pure Gallia.
>Is that an offer?Gotta pay the bills, but:>We're going down there no matter what you say.(eventually)
>>25713688>>Is that an offer?
>>25713688This is a flip.He may want to pay us. But goddamn I don't know if Jagar gives a damn right now...
>>25713688>>Is that an offer?for the $$$
>>25713688We're going down there no matter what you say...but just out of curiosity...how big of an offer are you making?
>>25713688... Why don't we ask Sam? She might be able to convince her father, after all.
>>25713688>Is that an offer?>We're going down there no matter what you say.In that order
>>25713688>>Is that an offer?Let's see what he has to say at least.
It is very dangerous to wander in without intel. Thinking we should stick with this guy for the moment. Would not want to wander in with no lines then get cut off and ripped to pieces.
>>25713688>Is that an offer?"I'm listening and only listening."
>>25713749also doing things up north may help out the lanseal bunch indirectly.
Yeah, seriously though -- why don't we let Sam field this one?... Actually -- we should probably play some variation on "Good Cop, Bad Cop" with Sam.i.e. Make Wellings have to deal with both Jager and Sam. With Jager reluctant to commit if it makes Sam unhappy.I figure we'd either get what we want, or we get more money?
>>25713768Yes, because Sam would to OH SO WILLING to try to nickel and dime her own father...
This offer better be good. I mean it's Regular Rates + Sam's Cut + Artya's Cut + Satisfaction Of REALLY Enjoying These Kills Cut. It's got to be at least 4 times the current rate.Oh and, to answer and earlier question, if I remember VC2 right, the GRA does indeed have naval power, thanks to some generous donations from the Feds. The last level takes place on a Fed Battleship.
>>25713778I love you so much.
>>25713778We must bring in the expert.
>>25713688>Is that an offer?Mercs need cash badly
>>25713688>We're going down there no matter what you say.
>>25713778Not quite what I had in mind... More like, Sam would push for one thing, and Wellings would see that Jager also values that.
>>25713783Out of character for Jager. He wouldn't fleece his clients like this; especially not when he himself was willing to go in without getting paid.So, >>25713688>Other We don't really need that much money, but we'd appreciate some help with our upkeep. This one's on the house.
Try not to be too "honor before reason" here guys, charging into unknown turf may sound cool but it'll likely cause problems.That and not considering the overall picture (sure the northern stuff might not have GLORY or such, but it'll ease things up for the normal forces which in turn will come down to the south afterwards)
>>25713778I vote we storm the south so hard that the next wannabe GRA would feel it
>>25713838It's not as easy as it seems as the HQ is naturally fortified against nearly any attack, there's a reason why the final battle was at sea and not there.
>>25713823I suppose Jager might value "what hurts the GRA" more sort of thing then?So what would be a convincing argument for him, would be something like "We need somebody to rescue the Archduchess" or "We need somebody to strike a very decisive blow at the GRA" or the like.
>other - we appreciate the offer but ask what the pressing need is.Have a feeling that Tyson Lannister isn't going to take no for an answer
>>25713688>Is that an offer?Probably best to take a few jobs, at the very least it'd introduce us to the level the GRA are playing at, along with learning countermeasure to deal with V2s
>>25713688>Is that an offer?
>>25713688"Is that an offer to hire our services?" You ask."I can't offer much, but I can give you more than enough to offset your costs." Wellings says."That's pretty generous of you." Sam blinks."Well, because I know better than to try and haggle with you." Wellings shrugs."But wait, I thought Cordelia has a 'no mercenaries' rule?" You point out. "Normally, Cordelia would be reluctant to hire mercenaries, but at this point I need every able body I can get and considering I'm the acting sovereign of Gallia at the moment, there's nobody here that can stop me.""Must be pretty nice, being able to run your own nation." You whistle. "Maybe I should try getting into that business.""Don't." Wellings sigh. "It's a pain in the ass. Trust me. I just want to go back to worrying about the Army. Anyways, I won't be sending you south. Not right away, at least, but the things you do up here will be critical for the overall war, not just for Lanseal.">Okay, consider us hired.>I think we'll go do our own thing.>Other
>>25713897>Okay, consider us hired.
>>25713897>>Okay, consider us hired.totally
>>25713897"How critical?">Anyways, I won't be sending you south. Not right away, at leastHmm, so it does allow the prospect of heading south *eventually*... Geh.And if we're not hired, we probably are going to have a LOT more trouble operating aren't we?
>>25713897>Consider us hiredWe came in expecting nothing, now we get money and intel, I'd say take it for at least a few mission before heading off on our own to open up route to lanseal if it's taking too long
>>25713897>>25713930"How critical?"That's what I want to know as well.
>>25713897>>Okay, consider us hiredIf we can get the north in order, the south'll become easier to handle.>>25713930Yes for a mix of reasons. Intel, cost, communications.
>>25713930Pretty much. We'd get no support, we go in blind, not knowing what's happening around us, save what we can scrounge up ourselves.
>>25713897>>Okay, consider us hired. But only if you send us to the south as soon as possible.
>>25713897>>Okay, consider us hired.
Now that we have a source of income again I would suggest getting the Theimer, and Rifle grenades. Between the gun upgrades and the rifle grenades we are pretty set for anti infantry power. The Theimer would give us a big boost in antitank power for a low price.We should look into some motorized transport for the squad too, that would let us get around faster and carry more gear with us. Since we are back in Gallia where we bought our tank it shouldn't be too hard to get some.
>>25714131I would hold off on getting any more gear until we know we're heading south. Right now all we'll be getting upkeep. If we're not heading South in a timely* fashion we'll most likely void this contract and raid the south ourselves.*Jagar Time
>>25714131Hindsight...We go forward comrades!
>>25714203can always buy before marching
>>25714163Personally, I'm giving it three missions. If we're not heading south by the forth well... Elizabeth and Sam should have dug up enough intel for us to use to plan a rapid attack to Lanseal.
>>25714163Then some actually as he did say "more than enough to cover your expenses" which imply some gain.
>>25713897>but I can give you more than enough to offset your costsAnd then we hire twenty mortar teams.
>>25714335Hmm... but enough to keep us tied down?
>>25714359you're assuming doing stuff up north won't benefit the south somehow, which isn't true. If we kick enough ass up northing, the GRA would likely start diverting man power up there, making it easier for Lanseal to attack form their end.
>>25713897"Okay then, consider us hired." You say. "We could always use a source of income.""Excellent." Wellings nods. "We'll be ready in a few weeks, once I can get the needed men an supplies together.""And what will we be doing in the meantime?" You ask."Well, do some training, get some rest." Wellings shrugs. "Isn't your family estate not far from here?""Well, yes...""Well, there you go. Go check up on your lands. I'll send word when we're ready to move." Wellings says. He then gives you a respectful nod as he goes off to take care of other matters."So, what now, Cap?" Sam asks."It looks like I'm going home." You sigh.>And that's it for tonight! Next thread is Saturday night, 7-8pm PST!
>>25714386I'm weighing two things here. One Jagars Character and If we're heading south. These are two things really matter in this. I really don't see Jagar having the patience for a prolong ground and pound here. If he's not seeing his Demons moving in some way. I have no doubt he'll pull out and opt for a straight Demon push to Lanseal.
>>25714163Also we should get as much recon and intel as we can and get upgrades as we need them. Going over the list one last time:>Gallian-A Rifle - 1000We don't need these anymore because we have the -S version.>Theimer Anti-tank Lance - 1000>Rifle Grenade Attachment - 1000These are general upgrades we should get asap. If upkeep is met we can easily afford them.>Flamethrower Attachment - 1000>Antipersonnel Mine - 1000>Spiderweave Armor (PROTOTYPE) - 1200These are highly situational and we should only get them before doing heavy urban combat. Which we will probably end up in if we do any fighting in the capital.>Reinforced Chassis - 2000This will greatly increase our tank power at a relatively low cost.>High Velocity Armor Piercing Ammo - 1500Ditto for this one, but we should only get it if we expect to face a ton of tanks which the GRA probably don't have.>War Emergency Power (PROTOTYPE) - 2000Too risky, I wouldn't chance using this on our tanks. However if we get some half-tracks or other vehicles we could have some redundancy in case one of them breaks down.>Howitzer Team - UPKEEP: 600>Fenrir Heavy Upgrade Package - 6000These are really awesome but should wait until we get back to fighting imperials again.
>>25714426Merc Command, does the GRA have any navy assets?
>>25714426Hey Merc are we recruiting anymore guys soon?
>>25714474What about chance to invest exp?
>>25714474Heh. Maybe we'll end up hiring on some of the Lanseal cadets or graduates?
>>25714474I hope not... Think of the upkeep man.
>>25714460>>Theimer Anti-tank Lance - 1000>>Rifle Grenade Attachment - 1000>Spiderweave Armor (PROTOTYPE) - 1200and this one if we're not feeling to shy:>Reinforced Chassis - 2000
>>25714467Does Gallia have much of a navy for that matter?I doubt either of them have anything that could detect a submarine much less fight one. Which gives us a huge advantage.
>>25714460>>Fenrir Heavy Upgrade Package - 6000By far the most useful.>Gallian-A Rifle - 1000We can use too weapons people. Due to the weapon strap we bought so many threads back.>Flamethrower Attachment - 1000BURN BABY BURN.is my thoughts really. We will get paid a decent amount later on anyway so.
>>25714522Yup.I was thinking one of the things we could do to kill time -- besides visiting our own estate -- was maybe harass the GRA at sea.Though I suppose we could keep it hidden instead, until the time we use it as a trump card when we really need it.
>>25714522wiki says they have 10,000 naval personnel, but nothing on how many ships
>>25714522Destroyers and smaller ships can be outfitted for anti-sub warfare fairly quickly and cheaply.
>>25714467The GRA has limited naval assets. The Loyalists outgun them in that front.>>25714474>>25714483You will soon.
>>25714551Yeah but detection is half the battle. They must have some sort of sonar tech for the minelayers at least because they obviously don't find the mines with their face. If they lack that capability they will be reduced to spotting it at night with a searchlight or throwing out tons and tons of depth charges.Speaking of which I wonder if Qyburn could come up with some underwater detection equipment for the sub if it doesn't have any already. I would hate for it to hit a mine.
>>25714617> underwater detection equipment for the sub if it doesn't have any already. I would hate for it to hit a mine.I imagine the Imps would have already developed Hydrophones for their u-boats...
