No time for rest, we have more VALKRIAN MERCS QUEST!Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/Jr8bbA3LDon'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 ending with the defeat of the Knight leading the Imperial forces in the area, breaking the back of the Imperial offensive.You then returned to Gallia to help the Loyalists fight the GRA and rescue Archduchess Cordelia. You also finally decided to move on from your past and start a relationship with your longtime friend and XO, Sam. Now, you've been recruited by Lynch to destroy two Valkrur superweapons. You already managed to destroy Stonehenge, and all that is left is Excalibur.Oh, and you asked Sam to marry you, and she accepted. Nothing possibly bad can happen from this, right?You're now participating in the Federations offensive into Belka, in an attempt to take pressure off the main offensive in the Round Table, as well as destroy Excalibur.(cont)
>>26260572>Oh, and you asked Sam to marry you, and she accepted. Nothing possibly bad can happen from this, right?Why do I get the feeling it's going into something like that "And I was just about to retire." death trope...
This is a good day. Just had some fun in PS2 and now for VMQ. Glorious.
>>26260584Either Jager or Sam is going to kick the bucket this mission. The laws of physics and stuff demands it.
>>26260592 The vanu ran from us today haha. I think it was the one platoon of armor and the other in the sundies The new smg is kick ass
>>26260627Nice>>26260626Dice gods say no.
>>26260626Shut uuuuuuuuup.Also, if I may take a moment to comment on the last thread, I find the idea of a Belkan knight wearing plate armor INSIDE A TANK absolutely hilarious.
>>26260572It's been three days since the beginning of the Federation offensive into Belka, as well as the capture of the Belkan town of Fardan. Over those past three days, the flood of reinforcements and supplies through the gap you and Freyberg's forces punched through the Imperial lines was nonstop. The past three days were spent consolidating your position, as well as sending out harassing attacks to keep the Imperials from digging in. By now, you have no doubt that the offensive has achieved its primary objective of drawing forces away from the Round Table.However, you true target lies in the Hadrain Mountains to the west, looming over the horizon. Somewhere in there, Excalibur, and no doubt Karla, are in there waiting for you. Freyberg doesn't know what's in there, but suspects something considering the numerous orders he's received to take those mountains. The presence of SOE teams already in Belka only serve to reinforce his suspicions."Yes, I know you want to assault the Hadrian Mountains as soon as possible." Freyberg sighs. "And so does Federation High Command. However, we've taken heavy losses during that last battle. Almost a quarter of our M5s were destroyed or heavily damaged, and we need our supply train to catch up. But I promise, we'll be ready to move out within the week.""Alright." You nod. "Just let us know when you're ready to go.""I will." Freyberg sighs. "Also, I do have a little side job for you to take care of. Nothing too major. Apparently we've attracted quite a bit of, erm, 'attention'. Darcsen partisans and anti-Imperial rebels are pouring in from all over region, wanting to join our cause.""And what does this have to with us?" You ask."Well, one of them claims to know a member of your unit." Freyberg says.Well, you wonder who that could possibly be."Thanks, Freyberg, I'll take care of it." You say.>Go find Tarin and tell her about this.>Go confront these partisans first. Tarin doesn't need to know just yet.>Other
>>26260669>>Go find Tarin and tell her about this.She could help with negotiations and ask about the rebel groups here.
>>26260669>Go find Tarin.I knew that this was going to happen tonight. I just knew it.
>>26260669>Go find Tarin and tell her about this.
>>26260669>Go find Tarin and tell her about this.Tarin! People with suspiciously similar operating procedure to you are looking for you!
>>26260669>Go find Tarin and tell her about this.Go find Tarin and tell her about this.
Seriously, why do you even have to ASK, MC? You know what we're going to choose.
>>26260659>Dice gods say no.Gooooooood earn the dice god's ire it's not like they have nearly killed Sam off once before already.
>>26260750F/SN's already run. Dice gods had their fun (I hope)
>>26260769Is that quest any good?
>>26260778If you're a fan of Fate yes. If not probably not. Also the rolls dear god the rolls. And AC guy dying alll the time.
>>26260669Well, you decide you this is something Tarin will have to know. But... this is a pretty damn big town and, like always, Tarin's pretty much disappeared. Probably terrorizing some poor Ustian recruits who think they're being haunted by some sort of phantom. You sort of suspect that Tarin deep down might be getting some sick form of amusement from that.Well, you've sort of got a handle on how Tarin operates now. Maybe you'd actually be able to find her on your own this time.>roll 1d20
>>26260826Off to a good start
>>26260826>>26260829>>26260830At least it didn't drop that much.
>>26260826>>26260829>>26260830Wrenloft, you're our only hope.
>>26260829good roll>>26260832OH GOD ITS THAT KIND OF NIGHT
>>26260826>>26260832damn the dice gods hate us
>>26260857karla is fucking with the dice!
On the bright side, we're purging the bad luck on less-important rolls. We're just trying to find Tarin.
>>26260865No i think it's more of a case of the Dice being massive karlafags
>>26260877>>26260893Impossibru. Had that been the case they wouldn't have Sam shot.This was the work of Tzeentch.
>>26260893We figured that out pretty much the thread after we hooked up with Sam.>>26260923Their plan backfired. We said they were Karlafags, not that they were smart.That's not a dig on Karlafags, I was one up to the bitter end.
>>26260829Well, you're kind of successful, though when you do find Tarin she's not exactly trying to hide or stealth around. In fact, you find her running some sort of fight club alongside Ramirez, with Brillant going along as some sort of bookie, much to your combined amusement and horror. Ramirez, you can understand how he'd want to beat the snot out of random strangers for fun and profit. You suspect maybe she agreed to get dragged into this crazy plan just to pass the time.Like, you already knew she could toss around men two or three times her size, which was what she was doing right now."Tarin!" You yell, waving her over with your 'better listen to your goddamn CO' expression. Tarin nods, knocks down her current opponent with a painful looking judo throw, and jogs over to your side of the ring."You need something, sir?" She asks, wiping some sweat off her brow.>Tell her about the partisans.>Ask her what the heck she's doing.>Other
>>26260954>>Tell her about the partisans.Let's get straight to business.
>>26260954>Ask her what the heck she's doing and if we can join in.If we're taking these saps for their money, we should dangle The Knight Puncher in front of them. They won't be able to resist.
>>26260954>Ask her what the heck she's doing.What the hell are you-->Tell her about the partisans.Never mind, I got something you might want to hear.
>>26260935I know that feel bro. I know that feel.>>26260954>Tell her about the partisans.
>>26260954>Tell her about the partisans.
>>26260954>Tell her about the partisans.But first"You guys started fight club and left out me?"
Sure, it's quick, dirty and a few threads late, but I've been busy and SWIMSUITS FUCK YEAH.
>>26261014Oh dear lord.
>>26261014Who's the ripped one second from the right?
>>26261014sexy time...Good job, anon.I was wondering if you did requests. I envisioned, though this may not necessarily be appropriate given the story, Alek with a harem. Probably consisting of Elsa, Tarin and Heliose.
>>26261043>>26261014Hey, Merc, this should be worth, like, two or three rerolls, don't you agree?
>>26261101Pic related.>>26260954"Tarin, I"m hurt." You say, crestfallen. "You guys go off and make a fight club, and don't even think of inviting me?""Sorry sir, we didn't know if you would approve." Tarin frowns. She's just wearing pants and a tank top, and you've got to make double sure your eyes don't wander down to her sweat soaked undershirt."You of all people should know I could never pass off a chance to punch a guy in the face." You laugh. "But seriously. There's a matter that's concerning you. You know about all the partisans filtering into the base, right?""Of course." Tarin nods."Yeah well, a bunch of them have been asking around for you specifically. I think they might be your old partisan buddies.""Really?" Tarin blinks. "D-did they say why?""Nope. That's just what I was about to go find out. I just wanted to let you know first.""Hey, you mind if I go with you then?" Tarin asks. There's something a bit different about her now, but you can't quite place it.>Yeah sure, you can tag along.>Nah, I think I can handle this on my own.>Other
>>26261249>Yeah sure, you can tag along.
>>26261249>>Yeah sure, you can tag along.
>>26261249>Yeah sure, you can tag along.>>26261065Too busy with work at the moment to take requests in good concience... If my workload stays the same, the quest will be over before I'm finished! ...I'll see what I can do.
>>26261249>>Yeah sure, you can tag along.family reunions. D'aw
>>26261249>Yeah sure, you can tag along.Come on, it's a war-buddies get together.
>>26261275well, if it looks like it's we're about to wrap up the story, I could just hand over my email address.
>>26261249"Well, come on then." You say, tossing a spare shirt to Tarin. "Might want to cover up. You're meeting old friends, after all.""Y-yeah." Tarin says, a bit distracted.Okay, now you're pretty damn sure something is wrong. You've don't think you've ever seen Tarin act hesitant or flustered. She was pretty damn stoic all the time, so any display of emotion, no matter how small was pretty serious. >Ask her what's bothering her.>Stay quiet for now. It seems personal.>Other
>>26261380>>Ask her what's bothering her.
>>26261275also, you wouldn't mind if I referred to you as Drawanon, would you?
>>26261380>Ask her what's bothering her.
>>26261380>Ask her what's bothering her.Only if she's down with telling us. Restraint with squaddies is something we must exercise
>>26261380>Ask her what's bothering her.But don't press her too hard.>>26261308>>26261414Sounds like we have a plan. Also Drawanon is fine by me!
>>26261380"Tarin, what's up?" You ask, ruffling her hair in an attempt to get her out of her funk. You're pretty sure if it was anybody else other than you trying that, they'd suddenly be short a hand."Well, it's because they probably know my father, which means he's either here or nearby..." Tarin bites her lip."Hey, thought the entire point was for us to FIND your father!" You blink."Yeah, well..." Tarin shifts uncomfortably. "The reason I was in Gallia was because my father didn't want me to be a soldier. He wanted me to have a normal life, not to fight Imps until I died in some far off battlefield. What's he going to think when he sees me here, doing what I've always done?">He's our father, I'm sure he'll understand.>He can't order you around, Tarin. This was your choice.>I'll beat him to a pulp he gives any shit over that.>Other
>>26261547>>He's our fatherYOURGoddamn freudian slips.
>>26261547>He's our father, I'm sure he'll understand.
>>26261547>He's your father, I'm sure he'll understand.
>>26261553oh god, Jager harem
>>26261547>>He's our father, I'm sure he'll understand.
>>26261547>He's our father, I'm sure he'll understand.but if he doesn't>I'll give him a lecture about how friggin' awesome his daughter is and how often she's saved my ass and the collective asses of our squads. You made your choice, and no one talks to my squaddies like that!
>>26261547>He's our father, I'm sure he'll understand.Also>I'll beat him to a pulp he gives any shit over that.
It's weird that this quest (which runs pretty late for the EST-bros) seems to be slower on the weekends...
>>26261547>>He can't order you around, Tarin. This was your choice.Poor girl needs to not fixate on daddy's approval so much.
>>26261675It's not really surprising that a girl who was sent away by her dad for her own safety would have some daddy issues
>>26261547>>He's your father, I'm sure he'll understand.
>>26261547"Hey, he's your father. I'm sure he'll understand." You say reassuringly. "I mean, what's he going to do? Send you to your room? I'm pretty confident there's no building on Europa that can hold you.""Thanks, sir." Tarin sighs. "It's just... I haven't seen him in years. What's he going to say?""Well, why don't we find out." You push Tarin forward. "Count your blessings, Tarin. Unlike a lot of other people, at least you've got a father to scold you.""...right, sorry sir." Tarin frowns."Ah, don't worry about it." You laugh. "Since when did you become such a big softie?"Tarin doesn't answer, and you walk to the section of town where the Darcsens have set up camp. You immediately feel a difference in the atmosphere. Unlike the Ustian citizen soldiers, who've only been at war for a couple of years, these were hardened partisans, who've most likely been fighting since the day they were born. They shoot wary eyes at any non-Darcsens that get too close, and they're generally more reserved and quiet. Now you know why Tarin acts the way she does."You the guys asking around for Tarin?" You ask a group of particularly burly looking Darcsen fighters."What's it to you?" One of them grumps."Because I'm right here." Tarin says, stepping out from behind you."TARIN!" The big bearded burly man shoves you aside and picks up Tarin a bear hug. Both of you show a huge amount of surprise at this. "It really is you! When I heard Edwin's girl was back in the Empire, I nearly tore the tongue out of the man that told me that!""Nice to see you too, Uncle Mack." Tarin wheezes before slipping out of the bear hug like an oiled snake."And who's this little pansy here?" Mack turns to you.>Let Tarin do the talking.>Introduce yourself.>Headbutt.>Other
>>26261830>Let Tarin do the talking.
>>26261830>>Let Tarin do the talking.
>>26261864going with this
>>26261830>Let Tarin do the talking.But first get in a line about "the beanpole who's asking" or something
>>26261864gota go with this
>>26261864This. JAGER THE DIPLOMANCER
>Headbutting a guy over some friendly banterNow I know Jager is a manchild but isn't this going a wee bit far with it?
>>26261830>>Let Tarin do the talkingFuck it, this is Tarin's gig.
>>26261913If we punch him, it's proven to make him useless and murder would be kinder.besides, /tg/ always picks the MANLY option.
>>26261830Well, it's headbuttin' time.>roll 1d20
Rolled 20>>26261951after the headbutt we need to give a MANLY HANDSHAKE
Rolled 3>>26261951nat 20 and we give him the worst concussion known to man
>>26261986it had to be this way
>>26261986Jesus christ.He'll feel that in the morning.
>>26261986More like we just knocked him out.
>>26261986>Nat 20>Knock out Uncle Mack, get ostracized by Tarin's family for 'attempted assassination'
>>26261986Well there goes Mack...
>>26261951oh god, why.
>>26261986Welp, that's a brain hemorrhage
>>26261986My nat 20s in VMQ>2 in a row to drink Sam under the table>The Stig>Headbutting Tarin's uncleFuck...I'm the comedy relief...
>>26261951Whelp... we're honorary Krogan now...
>>26262152Just find a way to let your skill bring us victory. Like the last thing needed to make Excalibur work is carried by a busty clumsy knight in a small hallway with her love interest full of banana peels.
>>26261986A resounding CRACK resounds throughout the entire town as two mighty skulls meet in the glorious field of battle. However, in the duel of bony wills, there could only be one winner.Mack, dazed from the sudden attack, falls flat on his ass. You stand over him, hiding the fact that headbutt hurt like HELL, and say calmly, "I'm Jager motherfucking Sturmfuhrer, and if you call me a pansy again, I'll do worse than headbutt you."However, much to your surprise, Mack just sits up and starts laughing."Hahaha! You're alright, son!" He grins as he's helped up by his comrades. "I'm Mack, second in command of the Winter Wolves, one of the many groups fighting Darcsen oppression.""I'm sure you are." You say. "So why exactly are you looking for Tarin.""Well, it concerns her father." Mack frowns. "It's a bit of a private matter.">Anything you say to Tarin you can say in front of me.>Okay I'll give you some space.>Ask Tarin what she thinks.>Other
>>26262242>Ask Tarin what she thinks.Her dad, her choice
>>26262242>>Ask Tarin what she thinks.
>>26262242>>Ask Tarin what she thinks.We stand by one of our many honorary little sisters.
>>26262225>a busty clumsy knight in a small hallway with her love interest full of banana peels.Fund it.>>26262242>Okay I'll give you some space.
>>26262242>Anything you can say in front of TarinNo beating around the bush. Let Mack know that part of taking Tarin on was committing to helping her reunite with her father.
>>26262242>>Ask Tarin what she thinks.Her business her choice.
>>26262242>>Other"Mack, if this is about a rescue mission, you might as well level with me. I will not allow Tarin to go this alone and will commit my mercenary company to this endeavor."
>>26262242"Well, that's up to Tarin, now, isn't it?" You say, turning to her. "Well?""You can trust him." Tarin says quietly."Mack turns to his compatriots, who shrug. If Tarin said you could be trusted, well, who were they to say otherwise?"Okay." Mack motions for both of you to sit. "It's no big secret that the Imps are up to something in those mountains. Everybody here knows it.""Yeah." You nod. "That's why the Feds are here.""And that's why we're here." Mack says. "Edwin wanted to find out what was so important here that the Imps would dump enough supplies to fuel several offensives. Of course, being the idiot he always is, he volunteered to go in himself as one of the work crews to see what was going on for himself.""Whoa." You whistle. "That takes some balls.""Typical." Tarin sighs. "He never could make one of his men do a dangerous mission when he could do it himself.""Yeah, well, he managed to escape the the mountain facility and was due to rendezvous with us, but got picked up by an Imp patrol. Fortunately, they didn't know he was part of the work crew and didn't ship him straight back the mountain. Bad news is that they shipped him to Daznow, one of them big Darcsen prison camps they keep just outside the Belkan border.""And you need someone to go get him out." You finish."Tarin's the only one of us whose got the skills to get in and out of camp like that." Mack says."I'll do it." Tarin says, standing up.>Let her go.>Fuck no, you're getting help, and you're going to accept it!>Other
>>26262569>Let her go.And take Ramirez with you
>>26262569>>OtherAsk if she needs help.If she says no then make her accept our help.
>>26262569>>Fuck no, you're getting help, and you're going to accept it!You have intel enough for a full on hit? We might be able to spring everyone.
>>26262569>Darcsen prison campAh, shit. Is this the episode where we stumble on the Darcsen concentration camp--lock, stock, and incinerators?>Fuck no, you're getting help, and you're going to accept it!
>>26262569>OtherIf she wants our help, she's got the best Merc company this side of the Not!Atlantic right behind her
>>26262569>Let her go.And take Ramirez with you, we both know he's a fucking one man army.>"Ramirez, take down that prison camp!"
>>26262569>>Fuck no, you're getting help, and you're going to accept it!
>>26262569>>Fuck no, you're getting help, and you're going to accept it!At least bring 3 other people with you.
>>26262619I'll second springing everyone.
>>26262622>Why we fightSecondingAlthough I'm tempted to let her handle it. Maybe let Ramirez put the fear of Valkyur into them
>>26262653This would be a great session, watching them do an epic team up.>Army of Two
>>26262708Not to mention they were getting awfully close during that gala:3
>>26262569>Fuck no, you're getting help, and you're going to accept it!we're getting everybody out of that camp
>>26262682If this is "Valkyrian 'Why We Fight'" we better draft the local Belkans to clean that shit up
>>26262569>Fuck no, you're getting help, and you're going to accept it!If we're doing this we're going all the way
>>26262739They're located on the Imperial side of the border.Reading comprehension!
>>26262682Changing vote to >other: Take RamirezBecause reasons
>>26262781>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.this is family business
>>26262569"Oh no, I'm not letting you do this alone." You say, walking up to Tarin and flicking her in the forehead. "You're going to get help on this, and you're going to accept it!""Noted, sir." Tarin nods, rubbing the spot where you flicked."Well, I guess more help is always welcome." Mack shrugs. "How much can you give?">I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.>We can see if Freyberg will be willing to help us out here.>Other
>>26262805>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.>"We've got experience in these things."
>>26262805>>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.

>>26262805>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.the Demons take care of their own. And Ramirez would hate it if you left him behind, eh?
>>26262805>>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.>>We can see if Freyberg will be willing to help us out here.both are worth looking into
>>26262805>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.We should also ask if Freyburg has the logistics to either feed the prisoners or get them out of here.
>>26262805>Other: Ramirez"Believe me. He's more than enough."

Rolled 20>>26262805>>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.Family. We are Family.
>>26262805>>I got a squad of very good and slightly crazy badasses.Time for the whole famn damily to go spring some Darcsens.
>>26262905Missed my point I was saying we should ask Freyburg to either house them or give them a ride elsewhere presumably our estate.
>>26262805"Well, I got a squad of very talented and slightly crazy badasses." You boast. "There's nothing the Demons CAN'T crack.""He's not lying." Tarin backs you up."You got tanks?" Mack asks."One of the biggest and baddest." You grin."Then this just might work." Mack nods. "I'm going to round up as many fighters as I can, and we'll meet back here and come up with a game plan.""Are you sure you don't want to ask Freyberg for help?" Tarin asks.>Well, I guess we can at least let him know what's up.>Nah, he's a busy man. We don't need to bother him with this.>Other
>>26262926No I got you...But I doubt there will be much to spare. We're in the middle of an invasion.Freyburg would probably just sigh at us.We'd be better of "commandeering" imperial transport and provisions. But realistically, I have a sinking feeling that there will be nothing we can do for the refugees in the immediate response and they will have to wait with only their grief and suffering to keep them company.
>>26263021>Well, I guess we can at least let him know what's up.
>>26263021>>Well, I guess we can at least let him know what's up.
>>26263021>>Nah, he's a busy man. We don't need to bother him with this.If he asks, just say that the Partisans told us of an Imperial Prison Camp with VIPs.
>>26263021>Well, I guess we can at least let him know what's up."Hey Freyberg, I'm to liberate a Darcsens prison camp and get some very motivated partisans. Wanna help?
>>26263021>Well, I guess we can at least let him know what's up.>>26263029Lets hope it doesn't come to that.
>>26263021>Well, I guess we can at least let him know what's up.Let him know what it is, but stress that this is a semi-personal mission. He doesn't need to divert any of his troops
>>26263029Even worse if we run into the Band of Brothers problem of "if we feed them too much they die...so leave them in the camp"...that was heartbreakingIf Merc includes a variant of the scene where the German general talks to his men I will straight up stand up and salute. That was a FANTASTIC scene
>>26263115"War eine longes Krieg..."
>>26263021"I guess it won't hurt to let him know what's up." You nod.Ten minutes and one quick explanation later, Freyberg sighs as he leans back in his seat."As if I don't have enough things to worry about, now you want to go off to liberate a prison camp?""Well, to be fair, it's for semi-personal reasons. I'm not asking you to provide any support or anything, considering you need all the resources you can get. but I'm just letting you know so you don't wonder where we are.""The one thing I'm not short on is supply vehicles." Freyberg points to the endless train of trucks filing into the town. "I'm already using them to ship out wounded, so it won't be too big of a leap to use them to carry refugees to safety as well. Consider it a favor from me.""Thanks, Freyberg." You grin. "We'll make sure not to cock everything up too bad.""Yeah, save it for the Imps in the mountains."You then leave Freyberg's temporary HQ and head straight for where the Demons have set up their base. Tarin already went ahead to let them know what's up and to get them mobilized."Sam, is everybody ready to go?""Armed and anxious." Sam nods, falling into place at your side. "Mack was nice enough to provide some maps of the camp."She then leads you to where the Demons and Mack's group have formed an impromptu war council, with members from both sides huddling around a large, slightly crudely drawn map of the Daznow."So, here's the current plan." Mack points to the map. "The Demons will lead the main assault on the camp with their armor. Since this is just a prison camp, they shouldn't have too much in the way of anti-armor weaponry. However, our biggest issue is speed. If we're too slow, the guards might start executing prisoners to prevent them from being rescued.""I assume that's where you come in?" You ask.(cont)
>>26263387"Yes." Mack nods. "I've got roughly fifty fighters. Half of them are going to set up ambush position on the southern road to keep any Imp reinforcements from arriving. The rest will infiltrate the camp while the majority of the guards are distracted by your assault.""So we're essentially the diversion." You conclude."Well, you've go the armor for it." Mack points out. "We may not have tanks or heavy weapons, but we're very good at sneaking. Give us twenty minutes and we'll get that camp emptied.">Sounds like a plan.>I've got a few concerns...>Other
>>26263406>Sounds like a plan.
>>26263406>>Sounds like a plan.
>>26263406>I've got a few concerns...What are your plans for possible Imp armor reinforcements? I don't suppose they'd ship knights up there, but with our armor as a diversion, do you have sufficient AT weaponry to hold them off?
>>26263431We should have headcase hunker down with them just in case
>>26263406>I've got a few concerns...How are we going to transport them? If they have wounded or malnourished our caravan will be easy pickings for reinforcement.
>>26263406>>I've got a few concerns...>>26263431This too. Logistics, man.
>>26263449Send Julia.Head case can shock and awe with his sound system
>>26263496We're gonna need Julia's heavy to send the message of "you're fucked" to the guards. I like Headcase's passive, but if the partisans have no AT plans, we've gotta hook them up
>>26263496Yeah but a heavy tank is a lot hard to hide than a tank destroyer
>>26263431Send the lancers to the ambush group. Our tanks should be able to handle armor.
>>26263508Do Molotovs count?
>>26263496No. Julia and Headcase will attack the camp, the lancers will provide AT support for ambush group. Also send an engineer down too to keep them supplied and fortify the ambush positios.
>>26263544Perhaps, but I'd like a more solid plan than "we...uh...have molotovs!". We could always detach Isolde to hang with them in ambush...although getting her to see the result of Imp domination might be a powerful negotiation factor
>>26263567>needing a better plan than MolotovsFinland kicked the USSR's ASS using Molotovs.
>>26263562This might be a good opportunity to lay some anti tank mines.
>>26263604Actually agree. Mine the approaches (except our escape route).Also, can we assign Elizabeth to explicitly prevent any reinforcements from coming, or at least point out their comm center so we can blow it (or buzzbomb it)?
>>26263604I keep forgetting what we have and what we don't have. Like those rocket tubes.Did we buy those?
>>26263591See also: Simo Hayha
>>26263633Those rocket tubes were way more effective than I expected them to be.>Did we buy those?Pastebin says we didn't get AT mines.
>>26263640To be fair, Hayha was a spawncamping asshole.No seriously, he pretty much set up along routes in and out of Russian bases and harassed them as they'd go out on patrols and shit. Fucking spawncamper.
>>26263640A sniper's great for lolinfantry, but on the off-chance they send armor, I wanna know that the partisans got our backs so we don't end up in a duel in a prison camp
>>26263406"Well, that's nice, but I got a concern." You say. "We know that the Belkans aren't in any hurry to send aid to a prison camp, but what happens when the Imps start sending armor to reinforce the camp? Do you guys even have the capacity to hold them off.""We've got our ways." Mack says. "Mines and improvised explosives do wonders at holding up convoys, though any AT support you could provide would be a great help.">I think you guys got it handled.>I'll send you some support. [specify]
>>26263649We can always "borrow" some.Freyberg can sigh about it later.
>>26263661>>I'll send you some support. [specify]Send Headcase for close support.
>>26263661>>I'll send you some support. [specify]Sam and Isolde?

[specify]Either Sam or Isolde, and maybe an engineer. Draw lots, because one is just as good as the other...
>>26263661>I think you guys got it handled.Mines should be well enough, Kilroy can be sent to assist if need be.
>>26263661>>I'll send you some support. [specify]Sam and Headcase.
>>26263661> Sam, Isolde, Helloise
>>26263661>>I'll send you some support. [specify]Send Isolde and a radio to call fast support from headcase.
>>26263709Seconded. We can send Headcase if things go belly up. Can Helloise setup some tank traps?
>>26263661Ask Fredbreyg if he can supply some lances?We're near a suppply dump somewhere might as well ask?
>>26263661>>I'll send you some support. [specify]Send Headcase
>>26263661>I think you guys got it handled.Lasted this long without our support I'm sure they can handle this.
>>26263661Also send our halftrack guy to ride the m4?
>>26263865He never goes full track
>>26263865>implying the Stig ever goes full track
>>26263661"Okay, I'll give you Isolde, Heloise, and Headcase. That should be ample AT power to handle anything that comes up that road." You say. "You don't really have to order them around or anything. They're experienced enough to know what to do.""Thanks." Mack nods. "We're ready to move out, so you'd better take care of everything before we leave.">Let's go now.>Actually I forgot something. [specify]>Other
>>26263877Well request it if you can, it's only for escortinging and armor support is needed
>>26263906>>Let's go now.
Too bad we can't attach a Bofors auto-cannon to our half track.
>>26263906>Let's go now.If we're feeling sentimental:>Tarin, if you need anything, we're right here...just nothing lethal please
>>26263956seconding the sentimentality
>>26263956I'll throw my hand in this as well.Btw since we have no one manning our M4, where are they?
>>26264023probably being turned into M1A3s by Qyburn
>>26263906A few hours and some driving later, and you're on the outskirts of Daznow. Thanks to the Federation presence, you notice that there a lot fewer guards at the camp, no doubt pulled to defend Excalibur. As Mack's maps have shown, the camp is basically a big square with a large barbed wire fence on the perimeter overwatched by large watchtowers at each corner. The camp's barracks and headquarters are located near the front gate, in order to discourage escape attempts. However, that means they're pretty much highly vulnerable to a frontal attack."So how are we busting in?" Julia asks, Fenrir's engine growling for blood.>Knock down the front gate.>Lets take out the barracks.>Take out the watch towers first.>Other
>>26264045The Jumbo Sherman?

>>26264075"Okay, we'll take out the towers first." You say. "Julia, you aim for the one on the right. Sam, you get the one on the left. Alek, pick up the slack in case anybody misses. Elizabeth, I need you to try and jam their comms to keep them from calling for help." You order.>roll 4d20

>>26264296Unfortunately, Julia's shot is a bit off, sailing past the tower and flying off into the distance. Sam is a bit luckier, with her scoring a direct hit that blows the top of her tower off. Alek follows off by blowing the guard in the tower Julia missed apart.Meanwhile, Elizabeth is partially successful in jamming their comms. While she can't stop them from sending out messages, she can scramble their messages enough that it'll take some time for whoever hears them to be able to decipher.Meanwhile, guards start pouring out of the barracks to respond to the attack, and they begin taking defensive positions.>Stay back and continue to engage them from range.>Charge in and hit them up close.>Other
>>26264392>>Charge in and hit them up close.

Alek, give us some supporting fire!"Fenrir's engines roar as Julia guns the engine. Thanks to the souped up engine Qyburn installed, the heavy tank moves much faster than you would think, and it barrels down the road, crush the gate under its treads and firing its cannon at the nearest target.Following close behind is the Growler. The Stig manages to expertly keep pace with the Fenrir, as well as keeping the tank between him and the enemy. Meanwhile, up top, Ramirez fires the mounted MG as you approach.You also hear the booming sound of Alek's ATR.>roll 5d20

>>26264602Julia takes aim at one of the barracks buildings and blows it to bits, sending wood and glass flying everywhere. Ramirez exacts a terrible toll with the Growler's mounted MG, mercilessly cutting down numerous Imp guards. Alek's shot wings a guard, taking a chunk of his arm off but not killing him.More and more guards start piling out of the barracks buildings. You don't immediately see any lances or other such anti-tank weaponry, so you can probably just stay in the Growler and use it as an impromptu bunker, though if there WAS a lance hidden in there somewhere, you'd all be one big juicy target.>Stay in the Growler.>Dismount.>Other

>>26265176Bad things would have happened to the rescue attempt.>>26265060It finally looks as if the guards had had enough. They were just here to guard the camp and kick around Darcsens, not try and fight off a group of heavily armed and highly experienced mercenaries with a grudge. Most flee, and some surrender. Either way, they're no threat any more."Mack, we've neutralized the guards." You say over the radio. "How's the rescue going?""We've got everybody out and we're ready to go!" Mack says happily. "Thanks for the diversion!""Um, sorry to spoil the party, but I've got some bad news." Elizabeth cuts in. "I just intercepted some Imperial comms. Apparently the Imps found out about our attack and they are sending a pretty damn big reinforcement column our way.""How big?"

Some sporadic explosions rock through the camp as they enter, which slows them down long enough that you're already back behind Fed lines when they finally figure out what the hell is going on.However, on the ride back, you notice Tarin looking anxious an nervous, and you have a feeling that it's not post-mission jitters."Nervous about seeing your father again?" You ask."Terribly." Tarin nods."Don't worry Tarin, no matter what happens, we've all got your back." You motion to the rest of the Demons, who nod in affirmation. "We're just as much family to as your father is.""Thanks, sir." Tarin gives one of her rare, genuine smiles.>And that's it for tonight! Tune in on Saturday 7-8pm PST for the next thread!
