Things are hot for VALKYRIAN MERCS QUEST!Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/XaeYNCNGDon't know what Valkyria Chronicles is? Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_Chronicles or http://valkyria.wikia.com/wiki/Valkyria_WikiYou 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 then moved on to Ustio, where you helped the beleaguered defenders fend off an Imperial offensive and stage a counterattack. While there, you also took care of a personal mission for Qyburn, got a new weapon called the Buzzbomb, recruited some new squad members, and helped Isolde regain her honor by defeating the Knight leading the Imperial forces in the area, breaking the back of the Imperial offensive.You then celebrated The Feast of All Saints, giving everybody some presents to strengthen your bonds with them. You then headed back to Gallia, only to find out the civil war hasn't been going well for the Loyalists. Things are desperate enough that they've hired you to participate in an upcoming mission.You've also visited your old castle to find that your exiled grandmother had returned, and is trying to get the place back up and running with the help of some Darcsen refugees.(cont)
>>25743021Looks like I'm just in time
>>25743021>Also, I forgot to mention this but I followed consensus posts and gave Sam a Theimer and Isolde a Lancaar.Currently, you are sitting inside the hold the Vergeltung, waiting for the signal to begin the mission. Not wanting to miss any details, you open the file General Wellings had given you and review the briefing again.Operation Alabaster Gale was the name of the Loyalist offensive aimed at retaking Randgriz. Units being reformed in Fouzen and Ghirlandio would make a combined push towards the capital and smash through the GRA with brute force. What also helped matters was reports that the GRA had pulled the majority of their V2 troops away to the South for reasons unknown, though possibly to deal with insurgent attacks that were harassing their supply lines, which meant now was the time to strike.However, General Wellings gave you a different mission. Instead of participating in the main push, you and the Demons were to stage a direct strike on Randgriz Castle. At first you thought it was to assassinate the Gassenarl leadership, though Wellings stressed that it was to rescue Archduchess Cordelia. Once the offensive began, it would be impossible to guarantee her safety, so her rescue was paramount.The plan was to use the Vergeltung to silently enter Lake Randgriz, directly behind the castle, and time the attack with the offensive in order to hit the castle at its weakest. Saying that this was a mighty ambitious plan was a bit of an understatement.>Talk with Davos. See how the landing will be handled.>Talk with your squad. Make sure they're ready.>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.
>>25743021Oh god I need to sleep!Love you Command, keep it up!
>>25743183>Talk with Davos. See how the landing will be handled.>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.
>>25743183>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.
>>25743183>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.We always need intel.
>>25743021And now it's the best time of the day.
>>25743183>>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.
>>25743183>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.We can trust both Davos and our unit to do their job.Intel is always good.
>>25743183>>Talk with Davos. See how the landing will be handled.>>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.
>>25743183>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.and>Talk with Davos. See how the landing will be handled.
>>25743185we could pull something like that off. Just throw a buzz bomb warhead in to a truck, park it and set it off from a safe distance
Hey, should we send Elizabeth to actually infiltrate for once?
>>25743183>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to land.TIME TO USE INFILTRATION
Intel pls. Also it wouldn't hurt to see Qyburn one last time before we leave since we won't get another chance. I think everyone wanted flamethrowers.
>>25743183>Talk with Elizabeth. See if you can get some intel before you have to landHave her infiltrate, maybe she can get the Archduchess into a position where rescue is easier for us.
>>25743261If anything, this sounds like the kind of mission where it might be a good idea.Since this is a covert hostage rescue operation.(In before we either roll 1 and have to rescue 2 hostages or roll 20 and mission over.)
>>25743261This would be a good time to use it, as it would make it easier for us to find a way in and out of the castle for our team.
>>25743261Yeah let's do it.
>>25743296no if we roll crap on this we use a re role I say
>>25743296I don't think it will be one dice rollI think we will be ASSUMING CONTROL
>>25743340D-Do we get a M-Metal Gear?
>>25743340Actually, seems more like that'll be Old Matthew. I mean he's in high school and he's ALREADY doing wetwork.
>>25743329I HOPE we will at least. Tactical Espionage is a go.
>>25743386>implying Matthew wont be our Ocelot
>>25743386Naw man we're Big Boss Matt's Solid snake
>>25743340I can imagine Sam or Elizabeth on the radio>Jager?>JAGER?!>JAAAAGGGERRRRRRRR!!!!
>>25743271How much were the flamethrowers?I'll vouch for it if we can get it before the mission for 1000-2000 credits.I feel like we should save up for that tank upgrade.
>>25743419But he's not our son...
>>25743403if he's our Ocelot, then who is Artya?
>>25743183You decide to track down Elizabeth, thinking that it would be nice to have some good old fashioned intel. True, you've been given maps and pictures of Randgriz Castle, and you been there a couple of times so you know your way around, but enemy strengths, placements, and other nasty surprises are things that are distressingly unknown."Ah, hello, Captain." Elizabeth greets you as you enter the radio room. "What can I do for you?">I need you to try and intercept GRA comms.>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.>Other
>>25743463>>I need you to try and intercept GRA comms.>>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.in that order please
>>25743463>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.Why not.
>>25743463>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.IT'STIME
>>25743463>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.
>>25743463>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.Infiltration is a go.
>>25743463>>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.
>>25743455>Artya killing enemies and licking the blood off of her knivesI.... I'll be in my bunk>>25743463>How do you feel about tactical espionage? I can provide a cardboard box if necessary
>>25743463>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.Good luck.
>>25743471She can only do one or the other.>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle
>>25743463>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.>>25743471Merc Explicitly stated when we got her we get one. Not both.
Time to brace ourselves for possible disaster (as the mission depends on the /tg/ dice goddess)
>>25743463>>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.Dice Gods, I do not know if you can hear me. But, grant me victory. If not... TO HELL WITH YOU!
>>25743482funny thing. Vamp was going to be a woman at first
>>25743507At least it's not Nuffle...
>>25743526>Dice Gods, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we played, or how we rolled. All that matters is that /tg/ rolled against the odds. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Dice Gods... so grant me one request. Grant me success! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you!ftfy
>>25743463>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.If you're feeling up to it. If not>I need you to try and intercept GRA comms.
>>25743463So, honest question for you guys. Do you want this to be a roll, or do you want to ASSUME CONTROL?
>>25743530I am now imagining something like this...
>>25743569I'd like to roll.
>>25743569ASSUME DIRECT CONTROL
>>25743569ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL
>>25743569WE ARE HARBINGER!
>>25743569ASSUME CONTROL.More fun that way.
>>25743569Let's roll like Optimus Prime.
>>25743569Assume control.Solid Snake this.I don't want to rely on the RNG.
>>25743569>>I need you to try and infiltrate the castle.roll
>>25743632That works too.
>>25743569Roll. We must princess carry Cordelia out of the castle while something explodes. 'Tis the Jager war
>>25743569WE ARE ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL
>>25743632>>25743652These work too.captcha: oolickyo thisI don't know captcha, I think the green one wants to lick me...
>>25743657Beta would just FIND her for us, everyone else will still have to storm the castle to get her out.
>>25743675>>25743569Nearly forgot about that nickAnyway >Roll
>>25743675if we can do both, starting with Elizabeth, then I'm fine with ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL
>>25743675>Beta would just FIND her for usYou know, it took me a second to remember that Beta was her codename, and I had a horrible/glorious image of JAGER STURMFUHERER: TSF PILOT
All these people that want to roll... What the hell...
>>25743725They really feel luck i guess they also probably hate fun.
>>25743725It's not that I don't like sneaking, its that I enjoy loud explosions more.
>>25743725They just want to speed things up and get to the mission over making the pace intentionally slow. Either that, or they misunderstand what the infiltration is for.
>>25743717Oh gods, don't bring MuvLuv into this. I have a problem with depression and... That fucking game.
>>25743725Assuming direct control will probably involve MORE rolling.I'm guessing they just want the tension to be over with.
>>25743752But we can do both they are not mutually exclusive.
>>25743777>I have a problem with depression and... That fucking game.
>>25743505No I'm pretty sure she can do both. If she infiltrates then it means she is unavailable to tap comms but only DURING the mission.She can still gather intel before we all ship out.
>>25743839I'm assuming that infiltration means we'll be sending her out before the rest of us land, meaning she won't have time to sit around at the radio.
>>25743839>CODEX ENTRY UNLOCKEDSpies: Spies are highly skilled and prized specialists possessing skills standard soldiers lack. Before beginning a mission, Beta can be sent on two different tasks: INFILTRATE, or SUPPORT.If Beta is tasked with INFILTRATING. She will attempt to infiltrate the enemy forces ahead of time. Depending on how successful she is, Beta can reveal enemy locations, identify alternate routes, or even sabotage the enemy. However, she will be unable to deploy with the unit.If tasked with SUPPORT, Beta will occupy the Type-36 and act as a communications officer. She can attempt to intercept or disrupt enemy communications. Under ideal circumstances, she would even be able to impersonate an officer and literally give the enemy false orders.Be warned, though. Espionage is a highly risky job. Infiltration can result in very bad outcomes if they fail, though the rewards may make the gamble worth it.From Merc, thread 7, or part five in the archive's.Way I read it we get one or the other.
>>25743905Pretty much.She's either already on the field or she's rolling with us in the tank not both.
>>25743905And so far, she has always been in the tank. Might as well let her stretch her legs.
>>25743813>>25743817Thank you. I love you too.
AW HELL YES, VALKYRIAN MERC QUEST.
we have a reroll, if she gets a one during the infiltration we can use the reroll to try and save her. lets have her infiltrate.
>>25743905I still want to hear what she thinks about the intel we have at hand.
Sorry, taking care of some errands at the moment. Will be back in like 15 mins.
Is it time to operate then?
>>25744334Does Elizabeth have Knifegun?Please tell me she has Knifegun.
>>25744373That depends, does she remember the basics of CQC?
>>25744373I imagine she has more or less the same load out options that she had in her side quest.
THIS IS A SNEAKING MISSION
>>25744402>>25744373I imagine Elizabeth is true operator. Therefore she not only has knife gun. She has knife nugget.
>>25744408sneaking. WITH OUR FISTS!
So...is Elizabeth getting a 1960's style superspy opening sequence after a cold opening of beating up GRA counterspies while sipping mimosas on a beach?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmB8ywJYMww
Oh dear. I dislike using Infiltration but if it succeeds we might get a advantage. Welp might as well see how this goes.
>Wooo! Finally back!You are ELIZABETH PARKER, a professional spy (and part time author) who has just been tasked with the very important mission of infiltrating Randgriz Castle, possibly one of the most heavily fortified buildings in all of Gallia, and find and/or rescue Archduchess Cordelia.Fortunately, you had sort of suspected that you would be sent in, so you already have an infiltration route in mind. General Wellings was kind enough to give you locations of some of the castle's numerous secret passages, and there was one that could be accessed from the lake. However, the path was pretty small and narrow, meaning you couldn't bring much equipment with you. However, it's not like you haven't done stuff like this before.Your current inventory is a basic COMBAT KNIFE and LOCKPICKS. Anything else you'll have to acquire on your own.It takes a while for you to shimmy your way through the secret passage, but soon enough you reach the exit, which leads to the castle's basement levels. You find yourself in an old food pantry. You carefully open the door, and see the back of a guard as he faces the other way down the hall. However, you can't see much else.>Stealth takedown!>Wait for him to move on.>Other
>>25744920>Wait for him to move onTime for sneaking!
>>25744920>>Stealth takedown!Wear his uniform over your own clothes even if they fit badly. If they are poorly fitted, adjust them.
>>25744920>Wait for him to move on.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNnoXFNlt-g
>>25744920>Wait for him to move on.
>>25744920>Stealth takedown!No shooting for the Big Boss rank. We're going to drown in the river.
>>25744628>not knife Obrez
>>25744920>>Wait for him to move on.We can't see what else is in the room. Wait for him to move away so we can the infos
>>25744920>>Wait for him to move on.No bodies is better.
>>25744920>>Wait for him to move on.We're not killing someone immediately, that will just cause problems later on.
>>25744920>Wait for him to move on.Bide our time.What are we wearing currently? We'll want to change clothes to something like a maid uniform if there are any maids, that sort of thing.
Will his uniform fit us? If so, takedown.
>>25744920>Wait for him to move on.Don't know if there's more or not lets just wait for a bit.
>>2574501299% likely that his uniform will NOT fit us.Clothes aren't a one size fit all, regardless of vidya logic.
>>25744986Well if you make an Obrez you kill the bayonet lug, that's sort of what I was thinking of.'sides if you're going knife nugget of any description how will you WORK DA BOLT?>>25744920>Wait for him to move on.Lets no leave any trace so as to allow the attack to go with as much surprise as possible.
>>25745043play msg2 they do a bit off that. if you bumped in to a guard the uniform fell off
>>25744920>Wait for him to move on.We operating now.
>>25744920>>Wait for him to move on.If we can get away with it we should do so
>>25744920>and part time authorOh lord, she writes sappy romance novels in her free time, doesn't she? Are the love interests of the heroine all based on Oswald?>Wait for him to move on.
>>25745065Still Vidya logic if you have to bump into someone for them to notice that you're wearing a uniform that's several sizes off.
>>25745153You bet your ass they're all based on Oswald.
>>25745153Perhaps she makes pastiche characters. We've got portrayals of everyone except their genderbent and given exaggerated personalities!
>>25745179>>25745153Now I'm imagining liz casually browsing enemy comm channels while writing her book. Inside the Type 36.While its under fire and Julia's swearing her ass off.
>>25745153In all likelihood, yes.
>>25745221I can picture this scene too....
>>25745221You remember who Oswald was, right?
>>25745153reminds me of that one guy from NCIS
>>25744920>part time author"Hunter Stormlord burst into the room Screaming "KARLAAAA" at the top of his lungs as he dashed towards the evil sorceress"
>>25745257Yeah what of it him?
>>25745212>>25745260So she's Thomas Gemcity?Does that make Jager L. J. Tibbs?
>>25745287All mah lols
>>25745308Eh, just checking. Its a good scene though.
>>25745287Stormlord's manly fists did grievous harm upon the Blue Eagle Knight. Each blow like a resounding crack, such was his fury.
>>25745153You remember that book Jager gifted her? He just gifted her her own book.>>25744920You decide to let the guard go. Better not to let the GRA know anything was up. Even one missed call in could start getting them suspicious. Creaking the door open a bit more, and you can see that the hallway is clear. Fortunately, it doesn't seem like the basement is a priority to guard, and you can move through the basement levels relatively unmolested. Mentally recalling the map of the castle, you know you've got two paths of entry to the Royal Chambers, where Cordelia is presumably being held.>Go through the kitchen and make your way through the service entrances. Less chance of being discovered, but not a lot of room to maneuver.>Cut directly there through the main chambers. Probably more guards, but you'll have far more options of movement.>Continue to explore the basement.>Other
>>25745375>>Continue to explore the basement.
>>25745375>>Continue to explore the basement.Find a spare uniform to wear if possible.
>>25745375haha oh wow.>Go through the kitchen and make your way through the service entrances. Less chance of being discovered, but not a lot of room to maneuver.
>>25745375>>Continue to explore the basement.Let's just make sure our escape route is clear.
>>25745375You can't be serious. That's hilarious.>Continue to explore the basement
>>25745375Maybe there's a spare servant uniform we can use. Then we can go to the kitchen, cook a simple meal and pretend to deliver it to Cordelia
>>25745375>Continue to explore the basement.
>>25745375>>Go through the kitchen and make your way through the service entrances. Less chance of being discovered, but not a lot of room to maneuver.
>>25745375>>Continue to explore the basement.If it's not a priority to guard it, it means we can check around without too much risk.
>>25745375>Go through the kitchen and make your way through the service entrancesBetter to be caught off guard in a hallway by one guard than by ten in a big room.
>>25745375>Continue to explore the basement.find something fitting to wearAlso, Jager couldn't know...but, awkwardYou never told us what Julia's nat 1 potential would've been
>>25745375Hah! Nice one.>Continue to explore the basement.Might be something useful down here. Might be. How long until the attack is set to go ahead or are we extracting Codelia first.
>>25745417This.We're on a mission to gather intel, not assassinate guards. Let's try to avoid raising any alarms before the attack.
>>25745454I think getting her out is the main goal I think.>>25745375>>Go through the kitchen and make your way through the service entrances. Less chance of being discovered, but not a lot of room to maneuver.
>>25745479I'd say just intel for now. Once Jaeger makes his move Elizabeth can secure Cordelia and wait for extraction.
>>25745375You don't know why, but your instincts are telling you to stay down in the basement. After all, there could pretty much be anything down here...>roll 1d20
Rolled 10>>25745657Clearly, the dice gods wish to troll us early today
Rolled 10>>25745655>>25745657>>25745663End result 10.Slightly ill-fitting uniform is a go.
Is high good or bad?
We might want to reroll that.
>>25745728Please stop saying that every bloody roll.
>>25745728Reroll? WHY?It's a 10. That's not terrible enough to warrant a reroll.
>>25745728Ones cancel out the highest roll, it's just 1 point lower than what we would've got.
>>25745754not only this, but it's not like we're in life or death combat here...yet
>>25745727Higher is better.Best of first three rolls. 20 is a crit sucess, 1 is a crit fail and eliminates our highest roll, meaning we use the middle roll.
>>25745787Thank you, good anon.Thats not too bad.
>>25745728Please shut up with the rerolls.The way the system here works is that we can't get a critical fail unless we roll two ones in the first three rolls.
>>25745825Unless the presence of a one without a success means we have -1 success, thus a crit fail. I'm not sure how Merc does it to be honest.
>>25745883The first one cancels out the highest roll forcing him to take the third roll.If that third roll is also a one then we get a crit fail.
>>25745655And unfortunately, you don't find anything of serious note. However, you DO come across an old laundry room, which apparently still sees use. You take a peek inside.Unfortunately, you don't see much you can use. There are a few GRA uniforms, but they don't match your size. You DO find some outfits that can fit you, but... well... you're not sure about this....Maid uniforms.You wish you could say you haven't had to stoop to that level, but you did once, at an Osean senator's mansion. You can steel feel the pinches on your rear, haunting you forever.>Well... if it's for the mission...>Oh god no, you have more pride than that.>Other

>>25746138>Well...if it's for the missionSexy Maid Infiltrator go!
>>25746138I have a feeling the maid outfit isn't even the proper uniform. It's just some thing a perverted GRA soldier likes to keep around. Try to convince all the female soldiers to try it on, we're walking directly into a sexy trap!
>>25746138>Well... if it's for the mission...We're going to have to drink a lot of booze when this is over
>>25746259>Implying we're not okay with this, and that the guards won't trip over each other to help Maid!Elizabeth with her mission.
>>25746321I wonder just how long will it take for the other shoe to drop and they'd realize there is a new maid in a supposedly locked down fortress

Rolled 13>>25746441The GRA isn't actually military though.
>>25746449Are you perhaps named Homer?
>>25746457Some of them are trained though.SOME OF THEM WERE MILITARY!
>>25746138Looking over the thing, you wonder how the hell such a thing would even pass muster. However, the mission always came first, and you sign as you reluctantly begin changing, vowing to never tell the other Demons about this if you could help it.You're just finished putting the maid uniform on when you hear people coming towards the room. They don't sound like guards. No... too high pitches and gossipy. It had to be the castle staff.>Hide and wait for them to pass.>Stand your ground and bluff them.>Other
>>25746476nyet. I'm probably missing the joke though

>>25746492See if we can't rope them into our plan. I can't imagine that the household staff is appreciating being held by a bunch of rebels
>>25746492>Hide and waitWe might be able to fool the GRA, but let's not push it with the staff.
>>25746492>Hide and wait for them to pass.Soldier we can bluff. Our fellow meidos? Don't think so.>ones ditlyGaDON'T JINX IT CAPTCHA
>>25746492Grab laundry, look like we're busy, start moving, act like we already have a job, look confident and assured in our movements.
>>25746492>Stand your ground and bluff themJust say you were signed on in another part of the castle and needed a fresh uniform.
>>25746523>>Hide and wait for them to pass.>vowing to never tell the other DemonsI hope we get extracted while wearing the uniform.That'll be hilarious.
Moment of truth... we were probably going to run into civilians anyway

>>25746528>>25746530>>25746581>>25746606people, we don't have to bluff them if we look like we're working.
>>25746622Or they could be informants. It is a possibility.
>stand ground a and bluff
>>25746635Technically that would count as a bluff.
>>25746630Nah, I'm not sure I'd look nearly that derpy. Also, my only exposure to VC "canon" other than this quest was watching the mehhh anime years and years ago...that's why I didn't really get the reference
>>25746696It's fine. Give the games a shot if you can, Anime is a shit compared to them.
>>25746642Both are possible, but which is more likely?I'd say it's more likely that they're upset with the occupying forces due to being, you know, occupying forces. Also, maid uniforms around "soldiers". How many "ah, come on don't be like that" do you think they've heard already?
>>25746755Yet another reason why I need to buy a PS3 and/or a PSP...goddamnit
>>25746859I have VC for PS3. I don't own one, I had to play it on a friends. Was totally worth it.
>>25746859Yeah, I know that feeling. I've got list of games I would like to play on the PS3...The question is to mod or not mod.
>>25746492You decide to try and bluff the incoming staff, loading laundry into a basket and then you're finally able to overhear their conversations."Ugh! I hate how those old farts changed up the uniforms!" One of them complains. "How are supposed to do our jobs with the skirt lines this short and with all these frills?""Ugh! I know!" Another shakes her head. "And those guards are total pervs, too! That one guard, Lester I think? I have to keep shooing him away!"The group of maids begin to disperse, each handling their own loads of laundry before one of them catches sight of you."Hey... I don't recall seeing you around. Are you new here?" She asks."Um, yeah." You say, putting on an air of a girl in a completely alien environment."Hmmm, you need some help, honey? You're putting that laundry in the wrong basket." Another maid butts in."Wh-what?!" >Play along. Maybe these maids can help you get past the guards.>Tell them who you are. Try and enlist their help!>Try and disengage.>Other
>>25747064>>Play along. Maybe these maids can help you get past the guards.
>>25747064>Play along. Maybe these maids can help you get past the guards.
>>25747064>Enlist help.Help staff can screw you over in so many way's it's not funny.
>>25746859I'd at least recommend a PSP, they are piss easy to soft mod these days and once you have the ability to just download whatever you want the PSP suddenly has a large library with tons of games worth playing because fuck it, it's free. Looking forward for VC3 translation getting finished. VC2 is at least worth a shot, I at least enjoyed it for a while.
>>25747064>Play along. Maybe these maids can help you get past the guards.Drop strategic spaghetti.We are just a harmless buffoon hired for her looks!
>>25747092Are they even working on a translation?

>>25747064>Play along. Maybe these maids can help you get past the guards."What?! Oh fie, I'm sorry! I just started last week and I'm still trying to get my head around things. Perhaps you ladies could help me out?"
>>25747064>Tell them who you are. Try and enlist their help!They're obviously not siding with the soldiers, and if we play along it will be obvious that we know absolutely nothing that a maid should know. (We're gonna keep making stupid mistakes like putting laundry in the wrong basket, over and over.)
>>25747128Yep, and there have been some recent signs of progress. http://vc3translationproject.wordpress.com/
>>25747064>Tell them who you are. Try and enlist their help!They're obviously disgruntled maids due to the uniform and treatment, if you can give them the info and get help on the intel inside, while setting up evac route for the workers, i think we'll finish this mission with little difficulties
>>25747064>Tell them who you are. Try and enlist their help!
>>25747134>oh fie!>you ladiesElizabeth has been reading too many Harlequin novels. Next she'll be swooning when a guard comes onto her because "that's how maids are supposed to be".
>play alongIt'd be idiotic and unprofessional to break cover. The maids may or may not be sympathetic, but a spy wouldn't leave that to chance.
>>25747064"O-oh my god, I'm so sorry!" You say, biting your lip. You KNEW learning to cry on command was time well invested. "I-It's just t-that t-t-they told me I c-could get the m-money I needed and-""Oh lord." One of the maids rolls her eyes. "You're another one of those poor southern girls those GRA thugs dragged along here?"You nod, trying to hold back fake tears."Ooooooh, you poor thing!" The first maid scurries forward and hugs you. "Don't worry, us servants stick together!""Th-thank you!" You cry."Anyways, my name's Elise, and this here is Leanne!" The first maid nods.>roll 1d20
>>25746696Don't worry about it.Homer is a masochist.
>>25747328I'm not that far down the path yet
>>25747300Welp, that's it. Beta is a maid now. She succeeded so well that she believes it herself.
We can probably get them to tell us where the duchess is.We were told to change her bedsheets.
>>25747505if...she is still alive
>>25747300"We're Cordelia's personal maids, so we can show you the ropes!"Jackpot. You have to keep from from grinning ear to ear. Sometimes unexpected surprises could make your mission far easier."Y-you know the Archduchess?" You say, half-genuine wonder gleaming in your eyes."Well of course!" Elise grins, soaking in the admiration. "Only the best can serve Cordelia, after all!""More like Cordelia evacuated most of the other servants before the GRA got here and we were all that was left." Leanne says bluntly."H-hey! We were just being loyal, that's all!""S-so you think I could see the Archduchess?""Well yeah, of course!" Elise nods. "We've got to take her fresh laundry up there anyways. You can tag along!"Awesome.So the three of you make your way to the Royal Chambers, getting into some idle chitchat, mostly about how perverted most of the GRA officers were and how they missed the "good old days" under Cordelia. You also learn that most of the guards had been transferred out of the palace, which is good for you and the Demons."Oh... oh no." Elise grinds to a halt.""What's wrong?" You ask."It's HIM." She points down the hall, where a pair of GRA guards are milling about at the foot of the stairs leading to the Royal Chambers. "It's goddamn Lester!""Lester the Molester." Leanne sighs. "That's our nickname for him.">We're just going to have to suck it up.>You know, I can take care of that little problem...>Other

>>25747658>We're just going to have to suck it up..Keep it cool and carry on
>>take care of DAT problemLester reserves it
>>25747888And the maids wouldn't be worried when Lester suddenly falls down dead? He might not be popular, but random murder is sure to upset them.Even if there were no other guards (but there are), there are still other PEOPLE here.Plus, this quests uses d20s, and only rolls that MC asks for counts.
>>25747888Nope nope nope. Stabbing will only end in pain.
On the infiltration - Our job is only to provide info and sabotage right? We're not here to grab Cordelia until the rest of the Demons arrive?
Armchair has a point about lester finding our knife... and taking care of this problem doesn't necessarily mean escalating the situation to a stabbing.Spies have other assets they can use besides senseless violence
>>25747658"We'll just have to suck it up." You say. "I mean, how bad can it be?"Elise only whimpers and Leanne shakes her head. That can't be good."Hey there, pretty ladies." One of the guards, presumably the infamous Lester, saunters forward as the second guard hangs back and shakes his head. Looks like he doesn't really enjoy Lester's antics either. Lester holsters his weapon and uses both arms to squeeze Elise and Leanne's butts. The nerve of this guy! Both maids shudder but try to weather the storm."Oh, and what's this, a new girl?" Lester grins when he see's you. "Ooooh, you just might be my new favorite!">roll 1d20
>>25748046Yes, but if we honestly can get Cordelia out in some possible and not too risky way we probably should.
>>25748062Yeah. At this point we are so very close to Cornelia that we can't risk giving ourselves away.
>>25748046I thought we we're supposed to find a disguise/safe spot and hang out here until the main force arrives, then make sure Cordelia isn't executed/moved before the Demons make their way to her.

>>25748178You just hold it in and weather the storm."Hey, man." The other GRA guard speaks up. "Let em go already so they can do their goddamn job already, like you should be doing.""Just having some fun is all." Lester says, backing away.With the toll paid, you and the other maids quickly shuffle past the guards, though you shoot a quick deathglare at Lester for a split second, leaving him a bit confused as what he saw was real or not. No matter what, once this mission went hot, Lester was gonna go first. Slowly.Upon reaching Cordelia's chambers, you see the Archduchess herself in a simple gown and looking out the window overlooking the city of Randgriz, a sad look on her face."Archduchess, we've brought your laundry." Leanne says."Thank you, Leanne." Cordelia nods. Wow, she even took the time to learn her servants' names. >Time to put the plan in action.>Wait for Elise and Leanne to leave first.>Other

>>25748588no no no....we tie him to a buzz bomb and launch it!
>>25748569Because the guards wouldn't notice that one of the three maids that entered is not leaving, and instead Cordelia is coming out wearing a maid outfit?
>>25748502Poor Katanashi-kun.>>25748530>Time to put the plan in action.
>>25748594Depends if they're supremacists or separatists.
Just a thought.If we put the plan into action, what exactly IS the plan?(I guess that's the next vote?)>>25748633Well, since the spies were specifically looking for Darcsen to kill, I don't think the GRA is very likely to hire them as maids.
>>25748530>Time to put the plan into actionWaiting for the maids to leave would be more professional, but I think Cordelia would like to have her closest maids that had to stay behind know what's going on either way.
Two guards at the door. Distract lester. Knife the alert guard first. THEN knife lester. Don't give him time to scream. Then ex filtrate out the basement like we came in.
Keep the maids here, Cordelia obviously trusts them so they need to be in on the plan.
>>25748673We don't even need to distract him. He'll do that all by himself.
>>25748673I was thinking of calling Lester up to 'help' move something. Then stabbing him...
>>25748673Hang on, wait.So our plan this entire time was to sneak in and kill one pervert? We should just tell Cordelia backup is on the way and she should hide us in her rooms so they don't grab her once shit gets real.
>>25748530>>Time to put the plan in action.Could get halp from the maids as well. They'll only be trouble otherwise
>>25748693>help move somethingJust offer to fuck his brains out, then you two can be alone and somebody gets penetrated.
>>25748693We have to kill the honest guard first. He's too focused on his job. Besides... save lester for last - it's more rewarding that way.
>>25748700Lester is causing a disturbance in the Maid!Force, and it has called out to us to rid them of this foul creature. All other concerns are secondary.But seriously, things are going pretty well so far, so actually getting Cordelia out might not be too impossible.
>>25748730I mean sure... if you want be blunt about it...
>>25748700No we take the princess with us. I thought that was obvious.
>>25748730I think the other guard would be less likely to raise the alarm if we shank him rather than flirting with him, actually.
>>25748743>>25748785It seems like an unnecessary risk to me though.
>>25748530>Time to put the plan in action.
>>25748809It's risky, but if we can get her out, or at least hide her somewhere else, that means that Jager & Co can storm the castle without having to worry about a "surrender or we kill the hostage" scenario.
Getting her our now wouldn't work, we need the rest of the demons. Dressing her up as a maid is a pretty good plan though, at a distance maids "running in terror" all look the same.
>>25748730I recommend having someone distract Lester while we take out the straightlaced guard first.
>>25748853>Someone drops something and one of the maids have to pick it up.>Lester is both blind and deaf.Problem solved.>sntsnst themI'm assuming that "snt" is the sound of a silent takedown then, Captcha?
We don't even know what the plan is.All we know is that we're putting it into action.
>>25748851What do you mean it wouldn't work? Seems pretty damn plausible if we play our cards right.We need to get her somewhere safe
>>25748915Eh... that's the fun. We get to use some lateral thinking.
>>25748530You decide that now's the time to start putting the plan into action.Without missing a beat, you drop the basket and pull out your combat uniform and your beret."E-Elizabeth?" Elise blinks. "W-what's going on?""Ah... I'm afraid I haven't been entirely truthful with you. I'm from with the Demons of Randgriz."Elise and Leanne both look confused, but realization dawns on Cordelia's face. She was the one that sanctioned the creation of the unit, after all."Ah, I see." Cordelia nods. "Then I suppose your allies are nearby?""Yep." You confirm. "I just need to let them know what's going on.""Then that means-""Yes, Elise, I am going to kick Lester's ass when all this is said and done."You quickly change out of your maid uniform and back into your regular one, setting the beret back on your head. You head to the window overlooking the lake and raise a flashlight, flicking it on and off in sequence.In the distance, you see a pinprick of light flash in response."Okay, here's what we do." You turn to Cordelia and the maids. "I can't force you to do this, but I need you two to distract the guards. I can take them out, and then we get Cordelia down to the basement levels.""W-we'll do it!" Elise says with conviction."We do serve the Archduchess, after all." Leanne agrees."Thank you for doing this." Cordelia bows her head.Elise and Leanne then go back down the stairs, where Lester starts harassing them again. However, this time, you're silently stalking them, ready to strike.>roll 1d0

>>25749045Jackpot? No that be 7s...
Cordelia should put on the other maid uniform, that will make her harder to pick out of the group.
>>25748973.1 d0. Dang its impossible heh
>>25749072Eh, since we're suddenly running around in full Operator mode in combat uniform and beret, I don't think it will make that much of a different.
>>25748973"I love it when a plan comes together!"
Rolled 10>>25749063no, here it would be 20s
Lester is easier to distract, so I guess we go for the other guy first?
>>25749121That's the general consensus, yeah.
>>25749121It looks like we're just taking them both out at once.
>>25749107Might come in handy if the SHTF, (and it still might). And we shouldn't just leave a maid uniform lying on the ground in Cordelia's room. Combined with the dead guards that's too big a tipoff.
>>25749172Both will die, one of them more painfully than the other, but we only have one knife so one at the time.
>>25749213Dead guards are already 200% suspicious, once they find them, it doesn't really matter much even if we leave a note saying "SPY WAS HERE".
>>25749250Except the last time when we stuffed a strangled Oswald (I'm sorry!) into an empty oil drum and the Empire went full Tenchu about it.
>>25749303I was under the impression his body was obliterated in the ensuing chaos.
Ah Lester... can you hear the sounds of sweet justice coming to visit you?
>>25749328or was it!
>>25749303Oswald wasn't a guard, he just another soldier who snuck us in.
>>25749303Well that's because we burned everything.Not like finding the dead guards will matter once we get Cordelia out of here.Shit, we won't even need to assault the castle.
>>25749351Go back and read it again, he was a guard assigned there.
>>25749328>>25749345Why do I foresee an Oswald cropping in on our next recruitment drive?
>>25749357No, we just send Rodriguez in there wearing nothing but a smile.
>>25749357We still can't let them hold the castle, even if Cordelia isn't there, so while this makes it easier (assuming we succeed, we haven't gotten her out yet), we will still assault it.
>>25749380We have to troll Elizabeth somehow.
>>25749391One; >>25749410Two; I think Tarin would want to go too! She has a new knife to use as well.
>>25749417Literally the only point we're doing this is to secure Cordelia.Where does it say that the castle has to be secured?
Rodriguez has a Castle Wolfenstein episode
>>25749436Anyone want to write up an "Oswald" who is an empire deserter with burn scars from an industrial accident?
>>25749417Most of the troops have been moved away so it looks like we extract Cordelia by sub while the Demons move in and take over the castle. Then we hold it while the army regulars attack the rest of the city.
Guys.>However, General Wellings gave you a different mission. Instead of participating in the main push, you and the Demons were to stage a direct strike on Randgriz Castle. At first you thought it was to assassinate the Gassenarl leadership, though Wellings stressed that it was to rescue Archduchess Cordelia. Once the offensive began, it would be impossible to guarantee her safety, so her rescue was paramount.Nothing about securing the castle. Job is get Cordelia out of there and to safety of rear lines.
>>25749472Lets not mentally break down our spy,alright?
>>25749455Nowhere - we just enjoy seeing the Bear Jew fuck shit up
>>25749472Does he have amnesia?
>>25749472That would cause a psychological break.
>>25749501And once she's safe, who's to say we can't earn some bonus pay?I mean, everyone else is just sitting there waiting to attack right now, and it would be such a waste not to let them have some fun too.
>>25749472No.I'd prefer dead people to stay dead.
>>25749537Plus, holding the castle in and of itself is good. We open up an entirely new front against the Imperials in the area, one that they have to respond to, which will weaken their presence elsewhere.
>>25749555We are not getting payed much to begin with. Taking the castle would still be useful for tking Randgriz, though.
>>25749571We're not getting paid to do that. We're being paid to get Cordelia out and protect her until she's in the rear lines.
>>25749571And Cordelia's castle is an important symbol, much like Cordelia herself.Having her safe is good, but retaking the entire castle will tip morale to our favor on both sides.
>>25749611Which the General army is going to be doing...
>>25749597We didn't come to Gallia to get paid.
>>25749597I doesn't say we have to take her to the rear lines, she'd be super safe in the sub and we could still do a little extra then.
Once the princess and our spy excel, we can swap in our combat team through the secret entrance
>>25748993>>25749006The guards never even see you coming. You swiftly knife the other guard in the neck, ending him quickly and painlessly. Lester's eyes widen in horror, but Elise and Leanne tackle him to the ground and keep him pinned. With all the heavy lifting they do, the maids are surprisingly much stronger than they look."Hey! Let go of me, you bitches!" "Is that what you think of us now, Lester?" You grin. Normally, you weren't one for sadism, but dear Lester here earned a special place in your heart. The dark side of it.Lester howls in pain as your boot meets his groin, though it's muffled as Elise clamps a cloth over his mouth. You let him linger for a few seconds before kneeling down."I'd like to say I'm sorry about this, Lester, but I just can't find any reason to." You say jamming the knife into the major artery located in his groin. Not normally a way attack somebody, but just as effective in killing them dead. Lester twitches for several seconds before falling silent. And so ended the life of Lester the Molester, bleeding out from a knife to the groin. There was probably something ironic or poetic in there, but you were on a short schedule."Okay, let's move!" You hiss. "It won't be long before they notice something's wrong!"--->CONTROL RELINQUISHEDYou are JAGER STURMFUHRER, and you are just about ready to storm Randgriz. You received Elizabeth's message, telling you that she's secured Cordelia and that she'll meet you in the castle's basement. By this point you and the rest of the Demons have already covertly landed on the shore, right outside of the castle's lakeside gate."The offensive's started." Sam whispers, tapping her wristwatch for emphasis.>Call in a buzzbomb. That gate is going down.>Let's save the buzzbomb and just ram it down with our armor.>Try and plant charges on the gate.>Other
>>25749611Just quit being a goddamn glory hog, our mission objective is accomplished, just radio General Welling and await further instructionThe castle is just a refurbished wreck after Marmota did a number on it anyway
>>25749639Hey that's a good idea. The sub is the one place the GRA have no hope of breaking into.
>>25749571Don't forget though, the GRA still have a Nasty Surprise for the Demons. We don't know how many V2 units are here. Without that Lanseal Intel, they're really at a severe disadvantage. But that's meta stuff. Personally, I think breaking the 'invincibility and inevitability' mystique around the GRA would do wonders. The few losses down south were negated by sacking Lanseal. Losing the Archduchess from underneath their noses...that's a black eye they can't make go away.Also, the bullet you don't have to fire today, is one you might desperately need tomorrow.
>>25749668Since the tunnel was too narrow for Beta to bring anything but a knife, I'd say only Tarin and Ramirez should go through the tunnel, if anyone.
>>25749675>>Try and plant charges on the gate.and buzzbomb any inbound armor

>>25749713I got just what we need:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyz_2DEah4o
>>25749681Its not glory hogging, its going the extra mile for our country, or did you forget about the patriotic part of it all.
>>25749675>>Let's save the buzzbomb and just ram it down with our armor.We need to move in with speed, maintain the momentum.
Which is the quietest option? Probably tanks.
>>25749675>>Try and plant charges on the gate.Lets try and keep this quiet till the last minute. Have the buzzbomb hit the opposite side of the castle when we blow the gate.
Couldn't we also just mortar the damn thing down?
>>25749675>Let's save the buzzbomb and just ram it down with our armor.KNOCK KNOCK MOTHERFUCKERS. TANKS IN YOUR FACE.
>>25749681The point is moot now, since we're assaulting it already, but being a merc means you have to be a bit of a glory hog.Nobody hires a completely unknown group of mercs, but they'd sure as hell hire The Demons of Randgriz, who stopped the invasion of Albion AND Ustav by punching knights and rescued Duchess Cordelia from the GRA and retook her castle from under their noses.
>>25749727Yeah, that is the one you are supposed to go for in some failure to stop drills. Works well for most body armor. Because no one uses dick flaps most of the time.
>>25749762It's glory hounding. Going the extra mile would be saving wound soldiers longs under fire and shit. Taking a castle with a hand full of troops? That's someone looking for nothing but glory.
>>25749822well, if we must tank ram, perhaps we should play some sort of music. Perhaps, 1812 overture by tchaikovsky?
>>25749821Taking the castle would seriously fuck up their response to the coming loyalist offense. Might take some pressure off of the attackers, and gives the GRA another front to worry about.
>>25749843Actually wait, it's RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES TIME. Gotta put those special abilities to good use!
>>25749843I'm sure Headcase has it.
>>25749821No, its glory hounding if you do it for glory. The castle is a symbol and also us taking it would cause a split in the GRA forces, helping our allies.
Ride of the Valkyries
>>25749862I was under the assumption that Ride of the Valkyries was more of an Airborne assault sort of thing.
>>25749675>>25749748 here.Changing my vote to>Let's save the buzzbomb and just ram it down with our armor.RIDE OF THE VALKYRIES is a go. Headcase will show them some negative waves.

Rolled 3>>25749952Merc, just checking. Is Headcase activating his special ability?Because this seems like the perfect opportunity to "cause terror to enemy troops".
Rolled 8>>25749990Max was using the huge-ass main gate though, I'm under the impression we're charging a smaller gate from another side.
>>25750011It probably activates on either a crit or a stunt, neither is really happening right nowwe do need to give him the reinforced chassis for 88mm cannon on the destroyer though, just so opportunitiy to activate it comes up more often
Rolled 12>>25750060What bigger stunt do you need than "SUDDENLY SURPRISE TANK OUT OF NOWHERE!"?
>>25749952Whatever the gate guards were expecting, it was NOT a full size Type-36 Medium Tank barging straight through the gate, splintering wood and sending soldiers running for their lives.Meanwhile, Headcase fires off some shells at the strongpoints above the gate, knocking them out while the rest of the Demons make their way inside."Oh boy, it looks like they got a welcoming committee for us." Julia says.As you sprint your way through the gate, you see several squads of GRA troops a few tanks responding to the breach. Well, you were going to be in for a tough fight.>Stand and fight. Wait for Elizabeth to bring Cordelia to you.>Split up and send a team to retrieve Elizabeth and Cordelia.>Other

Rolled 4>>25750129>Fight our way thereWhy can't Elizabeth just take Cordelia through the secret passage?
>>25750178Yeah... that sounds like a hell of a retrieval force
>>25750129>>Split up and send a team to retrieve Elizabeth and Cordelia.We need to retard magnet to draw out the garrison. The team retrieving Liz and Cordelia should be able to break through easier that way.
>>25750129>Split up and send a team to retrieve Elizabeth and Cordelia.RAMIREZ! Find Elizabeth and Princess Cordelia and extract them from the castle!
>>25750129>Split up and send a team to retrieve Elizabeth and CorneliaI'd recommend a small team, maybe just Tarin, Ramirez, and Heloise for a quick in and out while the rest of the Demons make their stand
>>25750129"Okay, we need to link up with Elizabeth!" You yell as Julia and Headcase being firing their cannons at the approaching GRA armor." "Can't they take the same way Elizabeth came in from?" Sam asks."That's what they're trying to do but she warned that guard presence would increase." You explain. "Plus she doesn't have a radio, so we'll be in the dark on her condition.""Okay, the who do we send in?" Sam says as she fires off a lance shot. "Under regular circumstances, storming a castle with this few people is suicide!>Who goes in? (you can include yourself)
>>25750471Tarin and Ramirez.

>>25750471Tarin, Ramirez, and ourselves. Also, order the buzzbomb be dropped elsewhere in the castle. Lets really kick over the hornet's nest.
>>25750471Tarin, Ramirez, and Heloise (ragnaid son).

Sam and Headcases shots score glancing hits on the GRA tanks, but Julia's 88mm blasts one apart. While the casualties you inflict are light, you provide the needed distraction for Tarin, Ramirez, and Heloise to reach the entrance to the main castle.The return fire bounces harmlessly off Fenrir's front armor, the hardened plates shrugging off bullets and shells alike.

Those GRA bastards could wait. Sam was the priority now. With renewed purpose, you sprint across the battlements, either unaware or uncaring of the bullets flying your way. Seeing your mad charge, your squadmates increase their fire in order to cover you. Alek in particular is in some sort of bloodrage, blowing apart torsos and heads with every shot, living up to the "one shot one kill" mantra of all snipers.You finally slide into position next to Sam. You're not sure if she's alive or not but the blood pooling under her body is not a good sign. Without thinking or hesitation, you pull out both yours and her ragnaids and activate them, bathing Sam in the blue healing light. You see Sam's eyelids twitch and she gives a slight groan. You breathe a sigh of relief. She's still alive, if only barely."Captain!" You hear Tarin's voice buzz through the radio. "We've linked up with Elizabeth!

>>25752028Just because we knew that "it happens" doesn't mean we will just shrug our shoulders when it does happen.>>25752049I agree with this. Let's just lay down some covering mortar fire as we withdraw. We can save the buzzbomb for later.
>>25751972>Pick up mine off belt>Place on ground at chokepoint>Continue to GTFOIt's not rocket science. We need to buy time more than we need to kill em all at the moment.>>25752002The only people who have any idea wtf it is are people who have seen it launch. Eventually the secret is going to get out but they are going to have a hell of a time reverse engineering something they only see for a couple seconds.
>>25751910Buzzbomb the fuckers and watch them burn.
>>25752077It doesn't change the fact people are talking about severely damaging a long standing landmark/home of loyality. That and one doesn't get to be a general by flying off the handle with retard rage whenever someone they know got hurt. People like then tend to end up NAMELESS.
>>25751818"Demons, WE ARE LEAVING!" You yell, picking up Sam in you arms. "Mortar team! Full bombardment! Drop every goddamn shell you've got! Davos! Fire a buzzbomb at the gate the moment we clear it!"With that, you sprint down the stairs with Brillant giving you covering fire and tossing his smoke grenade. Alek, still in that bloodrage sate, is actually running and gunning with the ATR, pausing every couple of seconds to take an aimed shot, with Elsa frantically tugging at him to keep him moving.Tarin, Ramirez, and Heloise finally make their return with Elizabeth, Cordelia, and a couple castle servants in tow. They contribute their own firepower and smoke grenades to cover their retreat.Finally, all of you are through the lake gate, and the Fenrir and Kilroy quickly reverse out, firing as they go.There's a bright flare on the surface of the lake, and a loud buzzing noise is heard in the air.>roll 1d20
>>25752084Its going to get out a lot sooner if we use it all the damn time. Plus it makes our group a high priority target when the fucking thing is used every time we take part in an engagement
>>25752110For damaging a castle that happens to contain a large number of rebels?I dare say that killing them would take precedence at this stage.
Rolled 7>>25752113DIE. DIE. DIE.
>>25752110>MUH MUH CASTLEThe Dutchess is more important than a pile of rocks. Which I should point out has already been knocked over by the imperials and rebuilt so it's not exactly mint. Collapsing the gate stops them from chasing us to the sub.
>>25751818>Link back up us. We've done what we've came here for and we are getting the fuck out.
>>25752079No one said we should shrug our shoulders, but to go raging cruise missile commander is retarded
>>25752084My god your serious? You really think that's how fucking mines work don't you? You can't just fucking lay on the ground like it's fucking magic. They're not grades where you just pull the pin and leave them. Holy shit...
>>25752140Good night sweet prince.
>>25752140I think the basement will be the only thing not obliterated.
Rolled 6>>25752201Perhaps we can cook up motar mines.
>>25752171We can still save the Duchess WITHOUT LEVELING THE FUCKING CASTLE.
>>25752190Too late, I bet people were just looking for an excuse to go full retard with explosives, likely opening the way for even worse decisions
Rolled 13>>25752209ah, crap, did I just destroy a historical landmark?
>>25752201> pull the pin and leave themUhh, the large majority of AP mines are infact exactly like that
Rolled 17>>25752222Well we were aiming at the gate.Perhaps we'll kill alot but leave much of the castle untouched.
>>25752222Don't worry, it got destroyed in the first game so I don't see any problem rebuilding it.
Rolled 14, 9, 2 = 25>>25752222Well it's not like your the first.
>>25752222Nah, we specifically told them to fire at the gate, not the castle itself.And a single bomb isn't going to demolish an entire castle, especially not when it's not even a direct hit.
>>25752209Honestly as long as they make sure to go full barrage only on the front side and time the buzz bomb right the castle should be fairly fine. Those things hold fairly well. Damage should be fairly minimal unless things go wildly off course.
>>25752222 Nah, like >>25752239 said, we aimed at the gate.The front gate, courtyard and main entrance are probably fucked though.
>>25752140The buzzbomb screams down at the perfect moment, just as the GRA forces are pushing through the gate to pursue you. In an instant, two GRA tanks and a squad of infantry are either incinerated or buried under tons of rubble. You then all pile into the assault boats you had prepared earlier for your escape, while the Fenrir and Kilroy activate their amphibious modes."Sorry about all the damage we caused to your castle, Archduchess." You apologize as the remains of the lake gate burn in the distance."Don't worry." Cordelia shakes her head and smiles. "Every castle, even Randgriz Castle, has been destroyed and rebuilt at some point. It's the people that are impossible to replace."You see Cordelia's eyes divert from yours and shift to the unconscious Sam, who you are cradling in your arms as Heloise tries to figure out the full extent of the damage."You are Jager Sturmfuhrer, correct?" Cordelia asks. "I remember this girl... Samantha I believe. She came to the palace on your behalf almost a year ago.">You... remember that?>Am I really that famous?>I don't really want to talk right now.>Other
>>25752267Along with any GRA who try to follow us.But with a roll of 19, I think the colatteral damage is pretty minimal.
Rolled 17>>25752282>>You... remember that?>>Am I really that famous?
>>25752282>>Am I really that famous?
>>25752282>>You... remember that?Something to distract us, that and background story.
>>25752282>You... remember that?that's quite the honor, isn't it?
>>25752282>>You... remember that?
>>25752282>You... remember that?
>>25752282>>You... remember that?Not as if Jager can personally do much to help Sam, so let's at least get him a distraction.
>>25752201There are a shitton of different mine types (tripwire, bouncing betty, claymore, etc) but the majority are a simple disk shaped pressure plate with a safety pin in the fuse that stops them from going off. You don't even need to bury it in some cases because once people see the mine they slow the fuck down.In fact if you play the actual game the AP and AT mines are exactly like this.>>25752267Ehhh don't worry about it. Maximilian already gave Castle Randgriz the Marmota once already.
Does this mean the standard operating procedure for anything harming sam is to blow it up, even if it's just a piece of paper?
>>25752408You don't just fuck with someone's not-girlfriend and expect to get away scot free.
>>25752408Why do you think she never lets Jager hang around when she does the paperwork?
>>25752384Main issue is we need covering fire not mines. So we would have to pause put the thing down then hope the guys are dumb enough not to notice this while we are getting shot at.>>25752408If she gets a paper cut that makes her seem dead yeah maybe. Honestly Jager wouldn't react as badly if it was just a injury she got in war time. But she almost died which would make him react that way.
>>25752451Pull the pin and toss it like a frisbee.We're Jager Sturmfurher. Regular logic does not appy to us.
>>25752437true but there's a time and a place for that, not flying off the handle using excessive force. Jager is a leader of a mercenary unit, not motherfucking rambo or Chuck Norris (1man armies)We're lucky our outburst hasn't screwed over the rest of the unit this time.
>>25752510Eh, if we hadn't already secured the Archduchess and everything, we'd probably just have sent Heliose away with Sam to get her patched up and finished the mission first.THEN freaked out.
>>25752282>You... remember that?>Am I really that famous?Punching out knights has that effect. Also for Gallia bitches.
>>25752510Honestly since it was just the courtyard and we where defending sovereignty we could get away it it fairly easy. Also guys>Alek, still in that bloodrage sate, is actually running and gunning with the ATR, Hardcore Alek is hard core
>>25752555He is one of my favorites.
>>25752536>>25752555There is also this point: flying into such a rage is a weakness that someone could exploit down the line. I mean look at how we exploited some of the knight's weaknesses.
>>25752451Depends on how, uh, cavalier you want to be with it.But looking back our area of operations was actually pretty tiny. Basically one gate, a courtyard and a section of battlements. If there were more chokepoints like the gate or twists and turns then mines would have been very helpful. But in this case all we could have used them for was to block the gate, and we buzzed that instead.Merc can you clarify how the mines are used? I take it that carrying mine would mean using a belt slot right? So no C4 or ragnaids in that slot for one thing. If we buy them can we use them in large operations like the beach landing?
>>25752486>Pull the pin and toss it like a frisbee.I have actually seen an ATO do that with an inert anti tank mine.
>>25752583Yes, but who doesn't have a weakness or two?Jager is rather emotionally unstable when it comes to losing people he care about, but since just about everyone on that list is a trained soldier...
>>25752583Well yeah. But Jager stayed calm and just went for excessive force so he could be sure and extra careful for his troop. Be very hard to take advantage of "Will calmly bomb the crap out of you excessively if you hurt his friend">>25752585Oh wow. Honestly though mines are best when you have time to set up more then 1. Or around corners placing them under fire. is about the worst time to do so.
>>25752633Besides the resources used in such a thing? It'd be pretty easy to do such a "feint" then reveal one's big guns that the heavy artilitery should have been used on instead.
>>25752664Well yes. But first one would need to hurt a squadmate enough in plain view hard with the demons. Then they would need to handle the force and outpace us. It is a flaw but it isn't something easily taken advantage of and takes noticing to begin with.
>>25752282"You... remember that?" You gape."I make it a habit to try and remember the plight of my subjects." Cordelia says. "Every Gallian is precious to me.""Even the GRA?" You raise an eyebrow."Yes, even them." Cordelia nods. "Even if they are largely misguided, I still believe many of them have the capacity to do good.""So then, how is it that you remember Sam so well?" You ask."Well, it's simple, really." Cordelia smiles. "She's the daughter of one my generals, after all. It would be a crime not to know her. When she came to request me to sanction the formation of your company, I was fully expecting her to try and use her connections with her father, and I was surprised that she didn't.""Really?" You blink."No, she merely told me how you were a loyal and dedicated soldier of Gallia, and how you could be trusted with the sort of power I granted to you. To earn the unerring loyalty of such an intelligent and resourceful young woman like that, well, I believe supporting you was an idea that had merit."You... honestly don't know what to say. You knew Sam really admired you a lot, but to have so much of it that it bled over into the freaking Archduchess herself?"You don't have to have the blood of the Valkrur to be an exceptional individual." Cordelia continues, stroking Sam's dirty and tangled hair. "I can sense it in both you and her. As long as you support one another, you are destined to do great things."Before you can say anything else, your boat finally reaches the Vergeltung. Sam is quickly carried off along with Alek to the infirmary, while Davos helps Cordelia up out of the boat.>Follow Sam>Escort Cordelia>Other
On an unrelated note, Merc if possible could we ask Qy to develop an unguided and minituarised version of the Buzzbomb? They'd make nice siege weapons we can tack onto our tanks.Also is there a possibility of giving our mortar guys an upgun, I'm thinking 120mm mortars, they were used widely by the Ruskies in WWII and everybody else started adopting 120mm's when they realised that much fire power in a mortar was fantastic.
>>25752697>Escort CordeliaSee what plans she has for the war.
>>25752697I'd say escort Cordelia, Sam should be fine. (Ofc this is /tg/ so Sam's probably going to win out)
>>25752692That and "fly off the handle eventually and use grossly too much firepower" rage is less impressive than "cold super focused" rage.>>25752697>>Follow SamI think the others have escorting in hand. That and she could use a friendly face to wake up to.
>>25752698You realize you're essentially asking for a dumb rocket, which is not exactly revolutionary technology.>>25752584And mines will take up a grenade slot.
>>25752697>Escort CordeliaGet her below decks. Sam can wait until the principal is safe.
>>25752697>Escort CordeliaSam's fine, she's with the Demons and ought to be with Wojtek pretty soon.
>>25752697Have Ramirez and Elizabeth escort Cordelia.We need to follow sam.
>>25752697>Escort CordeliaJager might be worried, but he's smart and professional enough to know that he can't do anything but get in the way until Sam has been put through some basic surgery to at least plug the holes.
Sam first then Cordelia. Cordelia has been a prisoner for a while so she will need time to get up to speed before she can plan anything. Let's spend that time with Sam.>>25752698Giving our tanks a Calliope rack wouldn't be too hard. It has obvious drawbacks though and is none too accurate.And we don't need to upgrade the mortar team, just hire the howitzer team and have both.
>>25752697>Follow Samgotta be there for are wounded
>>25752737Merc, query for you, whats the likelyhood of Qyburn making something akin to a nebelwerfer we can stick on the side of a tank?
>>25752765>Professional>Blowing up most of a castle just because they shot someone.Le lol.
if the sub is cramped, we're more likely to get in the way of medical treatment.
>>25752697Honestly my first thought is to check up on Alek and Sam to see the extent of the damage and Cordelia knows what she has to do herself. But I'm dropping out of this one.
How about we rig a Hedgehog depth charge launcher to one of our tanks for heavy support?
Guys following Sam isn't going to help her, we are just getting in the way. We can still be there when she wakes.
>>25752786>Blowíng up the gate of a castle to cover the retreat after the main objective has been achieved and we have a casualty that needs medical attention, so we don't want the enemy to follow usYou were saying?
>>25752786>Not accounting for the slowdown from injured squadmate. >Not making sure to save the leader of the nation because of this slowdown.Maximum Le.
>>25752812How can you be sure of that if we're busy escorting Cordelia?
>>25752839Jaeger isn't a doctor and its not going to take a huge amount of time to escort Cordellia compared to sam's medical attention
>>25752786You mean like how we suppressed our urge for vengeance in order to rescue our irreplaceable Duchess and cut off the enemy trying to follow us by damaging a replaceable castle full of enemy troops? Then yeah.>>25752828A spigot mortar array? That's not a half bad idea, gives the tank some indirect firepower. They used to mount really big ones on Churchill tanks for demolition work.
>>25752839That's exactly what I'm thinking, if we have the option to go with Sam then obviously something is going to happen. It's not like Merc gives us pointless options. I'd rather check on my wounded XO and get the details later when they actually want to brief us.
>>25752853then why is it a choice then? Because if we choose one we'll miss out on the other.
>>25752839Do we need to be there, asleep on the side of her bed the moment she wakes up? Isn't it okay to wait until after she wakes up and we visit her then?
>>25752883depends on her state of mind when she wakes up. Last time I checked women didn't like to wake up alone.
>>25752697>Escort CordeliaGive her the circumstances that leads the Demons returning to Gallia, idealism is cute, but she should know by now that the kids' gloves comes off, and these goddamn traitors have chosen their side
>>25752870So every choice must always be MAXIMUM SERIOUS MODE?It can't just be him sitting outside the surgery room being worried for half an hour before someone comes out and says "she's stable but needs to rest"?
Just because a choice is there doesn't mean anything special is going to happen. You could turn it around and say ''omg why is cordellia's choice there then?!''
>>25752737Well yer. But we havn't seen any rail launched rockets ANYWHERE in VC. Not even the tank Audrey had had simple rail launch rockets leading me to believe that VC verse hasn't figured out how to stabilising fins.Even Theimer's lance was praised because of its use OF stabilising fins.So yer my reasoning there.>>25752771Indeed, although I disagree on the mortar, the Howie team is one gun, a mortar upgun would be 3 tubes. But eh I asked for my own amusement.Rocket arty as a rule is very nice anyway.>>25752809>Matilda Hedgehog>Mah niggaShame we don't actually have a tilly, one of my favourite tanks.
>>25752895Last time I checked, Sam was a trained, professional soldier. They're not that bothered by waking up and not instantly seeing a familiar face.
>>25752899This and during that half hour we could have escorted cordellia.
>>25752870tell that to the people fishing up excuses not to when their agenda is pretty clear. I need not say what it is.>>25752906the choice seem to be the mission or comrade that jager's very close to. >>25752921Or during that time we'd find out nothing from escorting her only to find out Sam's been left waiting for that half hour.
>>25752936You are only increasing the strength of my argument. Both are choices were nothing may or may not happen, Sam isn't a baby and we have to make sure the 'package' is safe.
>>25752936Jesus Christ, don't tell me you are really going to say this is the ANTI-WAIFU peoples agenda!
>>25752936We need to brief Cordelia on what's happening. Right now there is a fight for Randgriz happening, and if she can clarify to the rest of the Gallian military of her status, it'd definitely be a moral boost for them
>>25752936Treating sam is going to take time no matter what, we can spend that escorting the duchess. Sam isn't a baby either just because she don't automatically see Jaeger's face. Stop blaming people for being against your waifu'ing of Sam.
>>25752936You could tell me what the agenda is, because I have no fucking clue what you're talking about?I LIKE Sam, but we can't do anything for her right now.Also, Sam is injured so she will be doing a lot of waiting for a while, and I'm pretty sure she already knows this. It's not as if we're going on a date or something that would make it oh-so-terrible not to be there the second she comes out of the operating room.
>>25752697You decide to escort Cordelia for the moment. You remember how cranky doctors can get about being interrupted when treating patients. Shipboard doctors were even worse, since the cramped conditions made them even crankier when valuable space was wasted by bystanders."So what do you think will happen now that you're freed? How is this civil war going to end?" You ask Cordelia."Those are complicated questions with no clear answers." Cordelia sighs. "Obviously, the Gassenarls must be deposed. I could have granted them amnesty before, but attacking Randgriz and seizing the throne in a coup is treason, which is a crime that cannot be forgiven.""Well, you know who to call, in that case." You say."Of course." Cordelia nods. "Now, if you excuse me, I need some rest due to today's events."With that, the rest of the night seems to be like a blur. The ship's doctor informs you that both Sam and Alek will be fine. Their wounds were serious but not serious enough that a shipboard doctor couldn't fix them up. However, Sam is still unconscious and it's not clear when she'll wake up, while Alek was dragged off by Elsa to parts unknown.Meanwhile, Elizabeth seems to have become pretty close to the two servants that followed her and Cordelia out. Every time you look in her direction, Elizabeth suddenly starts getting rather awkward and uncomfortable, piquing your suspicions...However, by the next morning, Randgriz is back in Loyalist hands. The GRA forces were routed by General Wellings and sent fleeing back south. Unfortunately, even though a huge chunk of the GRA leadership was captured, Baldren Gassenarl was able to escape capture and his whereabouts were currently unknown.Meanwhile, Cordelia returned to Randgriz to resume her place as Gallia's rightful ruler.(cont)
We've cleared one objective, but there is still a fucking war outside going on. It's alright to worry about Sam, but the situation at the moment doesn't really allow that because we still need to raise hell on the GRA army from their flanks so the loyalist can breach the city
>>25752999Also, with the recapture of Army HQ, contact was reestablished with Lanseal and other southern units. You find out that both Arty and Matt are both alive and well, though the news is rather hollow considering Sam is in no condition to hear the news.You feel more than a bit guilty having to explain Sam's close call with death to her own father. Thankfully, General Wellings doesn't blame you for it. While the death of one of his sons still stings, he doesn't blame you for Sam getting hurt Shit happens in war, after all. He has her transferred to the best hospital in Randgriz.Two days after the battle, Sam finally regains consciousness, which is a good thing for you since you had been sitting at her side for pretty much all of those two days."...Cap?" She croaks, blinking rapidly as her eyes see the sun for the first time in days."Sam!" You bolt up from your chair. "You're awake!""Yeah... I kinda screwed up real bad there, didn't I? Getting shot up like that...""Hey, we rescued Cordelia, and everybody's still fine." You say, putting a reassuring hand on her shoulder. "Nothing to worry about.""Yeah, well, I guess you could say I had one of those near death experiences." Sam frowns, obviously troubled. "I-I guess I learned that I shouldn't just sit around waiting for things to happen...""Sam, what are you talking abou-""JAGER!" She yells, her face now becoming red as a strawberry. "W-WILL YOU BE MY BOYFRIEND!?">And that's all for tonight, folks! Unfortunately, I will be unable to post this week due to the 4th of July. I'll make up for it by putting up a late thread on Tuesday 8-9pm PST that we can use for a side chapter or to continue this new development! However, the next full thread won't be until July 8, 6-7pm. See you till then!
>>25753160I wonder how this will turn out.
>>25753160WELP THIS CAN NO POSSIBLY END BADLY!!!!!!
>>25753160Damn son. Didn't see that coming, but it totally makes sense.Thanks for running Mer Com!
>>25753160...Welp... see you all on the 8th... >mmelya thinkingYeah, there's going to be a lot of thinking to be done...
>>25753160>What the DM saw
>>25753160WE JUST HAD THIS TALK LIKE A MONTH AGO YOUYOUYOUDOUBLE DARCSEN
>>25753160I am okay with this.We still need to hunt down Karla to officially put that relationship to rest, but hey. Having Sam next to us when we do sounds great to me.Besides, if he spent two days by her bed, worrying and waiting for her to wake up, it's time he admits that there's more than just a professional looking out for his subordinate there.
>>25753160So it has come to this..Thanks for the run merc was fun.
>>25753160as a Karlafag, I hate you so much, because saying no right now, with her in her current condition, would be really shittyI hate you so much MC
Time to build bunkers for the shitstorm that'll errupt as I don't think we can delay it again, thus force the point and then provoke a waifu war so bad it'll put EWII to shame.
>>25753225What can I say, sometimes the characters just aren't going to sit around for you to make your move (if ever).That and critfails are delicious. I've literally never had a crifail save up until now.
>>25753160Honestly I kind of see him saying he wants to get over his past first. But after everything is out of the way he will.
>>25753259what exactly critfailed or got saved to result in Sam getting badly wounded like that?
>>25753225Agreed, it would feel like kicking a puppy.
>>25753265>Rolled 20, 1, 14, 7, 19, 19, 7, 5Is the foes rolls. Then sam rolled a nat 1 for her save.
>>25753265Usually in big combats I do rolls in the background to save time, and I also randomly allocate hits. Sam rolled a nat 1 on her save, against a 19 to hit. A 20 would've instantly killed her in that situation.
>>25753239I'm hoping MC just railroads us on this one and he just says yes (or at least, "yes, but only after I've dealt with Karla"), because the Karla-fans raging over a railroad is still the lesser evil compared to the shitstorm an actual vote would cause.Either way, thanks for running the quest for us. See you in a while, then.
>>25753160oh my. well, it was bound to happen one way or the other.I'd like Karla and Jager to make up but i won't object if we get together with Sam.Dealing with Karla will likely be more difficult if we do though.
>>25753264this is pretty much what he said when she first asked about taking their relationship furtherConsensus was very clearly "I can't even start to think about stuff like that until things with Karla are resolved" but we merely put things off with the equivalent of "maybe, ask me later"
>>25753225Heh yeah, I was originally thinking the Karla path would be too good to pass up, but that was when Sam was just our buddy. I don't want to shoot her down now that she has been pretty much the perfect XO and friend.
>>25753295Good thing we had those re-rolls available eh?
>>25753295Oh dear. I can't even imagine what would have happened in the thread if Sam's head just went splat instead.That's just so far out there that... Just no.
>>25753305Yeah, well, near death experiences tend to change a person's line of thinking.
>>25753326T-that's what rerolls are for, right?
>>25753295> A 20 would've instantly killed her in that situation.Oh dear lord the pure rage Jager would have in that situation. I think he would gun down the GRA himself with no need for a army.Also what did alek roll? I'm kind of curious since he went blood rage.
At some point we should use the phrase "don't be such an old maid" when speaking with Elizabeth just to see her twitch.
>>25753335Yeah, but still.Imagine what would happen...Just... Splat.
>>25753337>Also what did alek roll? I'm kind of curious since he went blood rage.he gets like that when you take into account his low HP buff, and pair him with Elsa buff
>>25753323Usually hidden rolls really aren't that serious, but the way they lined up today, I just couldn't resist.But I honestly would have asked for a reroll if that 20 were allocated to Sam instead of the 19. I'll only ever prompt for rerolls if it's an ultra bad outcome.
>>25753337He got hit and his potential kicked in. Apparently instead of pain he feels murder.
Dammit Sam.Yes.If nothing else, our little freak-out moment there should have driven it home just how much Jager cares about Sam.We chose this path when we did every boyfriend-like thing in the fucking book for Sam except for physical affection, when we KNEW she was interested in us, so its far too late to complain. It was bound to happen, it was only a matter of time.
>>25753355Yeah I know just kind of wondering how bad his roll was to get injured that badly.Also I will say it again.Hardcore alek is hardcore. Jager really needs to comment that his life or death reactions are glorious.
