Check it out here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valkyria_Chronicles or http://valkyria.wikia.com/wiki/Valkyria_WikiYou are LUCAS WILLIAMS, a member of the mercenary company Demons of Randgriz and a graduate from its elite TIER ONE Program. You are now part of the elite, but inexperienced WRAITH TEAM, consisting of you and your fellow classmates from training.After a grueling year of training and quick battle to get rid of some troublesome pirates harassing Gallia's northern coast, you and Wraith Team have found yourselves transferred to the exotic land of San Salvacion, an entire ocean away from Gallia. You've been brought in to help the beleaguered country suppress the rebels that oppose its rule, as well as counter any possible Erusean aggression from the South.Unfortunately, the action started much sooner than you thought it would when your base was ambushed literally almost the moment you set foot in it. While the attackers were repulsed, the attack has left you and your squad a bit shaken that presumably poorly armed and organized rebels could strike at the heart of San Salvacion's military power in the south so easily.Unfortunately, it seems the situation is getting more and more complicated as more players in this conflict begin to reveal themselves...(cont)
>>27492285The next day, and Simo was still busy trying to convince the San Salvacion government to sanction a scouting mission into Erusea. This has left Wraith Team in a bit of a limbo situation, as you didn't really have official orders to do anything in particular, so most of you were left to your own devices, more or less.Well, you could always hit up Hudson's team, who were probably hanging around here somewhere. Though you've talked to Hudson and Reznov, you really didn't know the rest of the Emmerian team that well. Last you say they had gone off with Bragg and Runaround.Meanwhile, you see Menendez, Falynn, and Charlotte at the West gate. Oddly enough, you see Menendez and Falynn in some sort of enthusiastic conversation. Since when did the two of them grow so close?And finally, you can see Lucina, Morgan, and Mary-Kate at the top of the wall, apparently eying something suspicious or something.Well, there was still Edwin and Sparky, but they were still in the infirmary and the doctors here were much more strict. No visitors. In addition, Lara and her fellow pilots had already left earlier in the morning to return to the Kestrel.>Find Hudson's team.>Hit up Menendez and the Twins.>See what Lucina, Morgan, and MK are up to.

>>27492297You seem to recall Hudson and his team moving off to the motor pool, so you decide to make your way over there. You wave your way through all of the parked jeeps, trucks, tanks, and transports until you can see Trombe sitting in the back. Oddly enough, it wasn't quite in line with the rest of the vehicles, like it was hiding something behind it. You can also hear lots of talking, though you can't quite make out exactly what is being said.Curious, you walk around the vehicle, and see Bragg, Runaround, and Hudson's team all gathered around a makeshift still, most of them with drinks in their hands.>What the heck is going on, here?>Isn't this like, illegal, or something?>You know what, at this point I could probably use a drink, too.>Other

>>27492581>Isn't this like, illegal, or something?
>>27492581"What the heck is going on here?" You blink."You're right, he IS pretty slow." Woods cackles to Bragg."I can see you've got a still set up." You protest. "But why? And... how?!?""Lucas, if you've really got to ask why a man needs a drink, you obviously haven't truly lived." Bragg laughs. "Since all of our supplies have to be shipped in, alcohol is pretty low on priorities, so we gotta make do.""Trading the surplus to the villagers also has it's boons." Runaround nods. "Isn't bootlegging illegal?""Well, only in Europa." Bragg shrugs. "And... Emmeria too?""The government loves their taxes." Mason nods."But the thing is, we're not in Europa or Emmeria. We're in San Salvacion, and last I checked the had no official law against brewing your own alcohol, and even if they did, I'd love to see a policeman brave enough to come to the southern border to arrest us.""As for the how," Runaround joins in. "Falynn actually helped us out a lot with it.">No way, Falynn wouldn't do something like that... would she?>Oh, I guess she does have a wild side to her after all.>Other

>>27492832Huot Automatic Rifle, an LMG developed from the Ross Rifle, a bolt action rifle used by the Canadians during WW1.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huot_Automatic_Rifle
>>27492865Ah yes,how can I forget the Ross rifle? Many Canadians in WW1 had a first hand encounter with using them after the bolt flew into their faces.
>>27492789>Oh, I guess she does have a wild side to her after all.
>>27492640>>27492657Keep that damn chicken quiet.>>27492789>No way, Falynn wouldn't do something like that... would she?
>>27492789"No way, Falynn wouldn't do something like that... would she?" You gasp."Lucas, do not underestimate a latent genius who doesn't experience enough challenge in her life." Bragg grins."How does she even know how to build a still in the first place?""Guess she read it somewhere." Bragg shrugs.Well, this was certainly something you had to confront Falynn about at some point. However, you suddenly feel two hands starting pinching your cheeks."Awww, he's just so adorable!" Chequita cooes as she pulls at your cheeks from behind. Honestly you never even heard her coming! "Hey Lucas, why don't you join up with us? I promise I'll take care of and look out for you~!"Both Hudson and Mason shake their heads in exasperation, while Woods is in stitches and nearly spills his drink. Bragg and Runaround also join in on the silent laughter. Yeah, great squadmates they were. Weren't they supposed to be watching your back?>Humor her.>Reject her offer politely.>OH HELL NAW>Other

>>27492987>OH HELL NAWavoiding bad end
>>27492987>Humor her.Time for Bad End.
>>27493223Fucking Chaquita would result in a bad end how? We get a higher grade of ass than was likely otherwise on a reasonable timescale?
>>27492987Every instinct in you tells you to try and disengage and run for you life, but your rational mind kicks in and warns you that trying to run away would probably make things worse. From what you could tell, Chequita had a hunter's mindset, the harder something was to obtain, the more she wanted it.This meant that in order to save yourself, you'd have to throw yourself into her jaws, in a metaphorical sense."Haha, really now?" You laugh awkwardly. "What are the benefits for Emmerian soldiers?""Well... in the Special Warfare Division, you get to kill whoever you want and do whatever you want with almost zero consequences!" Chequita says with a beaming smile. "As long as you don't caught, of course, but that's half the fun!""Okay, that's enough." Hudson sighs. "Let the kid go, Chequita.""AWWWWWW." Chequita pouts. Yes, you are seeing a grown woman trained killer pouting like a ten year old girl. "Can't we keep him, pleeeaaaase?"And her grip on you grows ever tighter.>Point out that she should probably listen to Hudson.>Plead with Hudson to help you out here.>You've got no choice but to use THAT.>Other

>>27493263>>You've got no choice but to use THAT.Well shit, now I have to now what THAT is.
>>27493311Maybe we should give her a caramel or something after she lets us go. We don't want to leave her upset.
Lucas really needs a rape whistle. Hopefully it will work.
>>27493319it seemed pretty easy to guess seeing how she is a nutter
>>27492889I love how despite the fact that the bolt stop lug physically stopped the bolt from over-travel, and that the Mk1 and Mk2 rifles which had the main problems, were phased out and almost all troops were given working Mk3's, this myth still perpetuates, but please, keep being ignorant
>>27493263>>You've got no choice but to use THAT.I don't know what "that" is, but we should use it. For reasons.
>>27493360The rape whistle never works.>>27493263>>You've got no choice but to use THAT.Gatei?
>>27493360It never works you fool
>>27493481>>27493453Look then we need a way to weaponize our fluffy hair and a ability to become a maid
>>27493536I'm now picturing Lucas charging an enemy encampment head first, howling like a madman. "TOUCH MY HAIR! TOOOOOUUUCH MYYYYY HAAAAAAIIIIR!"The enemies scatter to the four winds, terrified, and filled with a strange desire to touch the hair.
>>27493536I just imagined a grenade with bits of our hair in it
>>27493263Well, you really didn't want to, but it looks like you'd have to resort to it. You'd have to use THAT.Fortunately for you, Chequita's face is already pretty close to your head, so all you need to do is shift your head a bit to the side and rub your fluffy hair all along her cheek."Aaaaah~!" Chequita squeals before falling over, a dreamy look on her face. "So... FLUFFY! Oh god I'm gonna die..."This time EVERYBODY starts laughing and spilling their drinks. Bragg actually almost knocks the still over."Holy shit, kid!" Woods cackles. "We've seen and fought some serious shit over the past few years, but never have I seen anything take down Chequita as fast as you did!""Oh man she's never going to live down this one!" Mason laughs. "Give me the camera, Woods, we gotta save this for posterity!"Hudson doesn't laugh out loud, but the restrained grin he's giving suggest he's on the verge."Damn, Lucas." Bragg laughs and wraps an arm around you. "I always wondered why the girls always had their eyes on you, and now I know! Hair like that is a borderline war crime!""Oh yeah, I'm going to have to report this to the UN." Hudson nods. "We've just found a new WMD.""Hey, that's not funny guys." You frown. "Chequita's really scary!""Well, I think you'd better be hauling ass, kid." Woods says, getting a new drink for himself. "Or Chequita's gonna start grabbing it when she wakes up!"You nod and quickly make your escape. Hudson and his guys were certainly interesting, though Chequita was definitely the most scary of the lot. Before you know it, you're back at the center of the base. Everybody seems to be gone, but you're pretty sure you've got a good idea where they went.>Go to the top of the wall to see if you can find Lucina's group.>Go to the West gate to see if you can find Menedez and the Twins.>Other
>>27493682>>Go to the top of the wall to see if you can find Lucina's group.>>27493536Maybe we can sneak into secure areas with our ability to disguise as a maid and set up a firing position by hiding an LMG in the skirt. Hell, maybe Morgan can disguise herself as a butler as well.

>>27493682>Go to the West gate to see if you can find Menedez and the Twins.
>>27493682You climb up to the top of the wall to try and see where Lucina, Morgan, and Mary-Kate went off to. You scan the jungle carefully, trying to find them.>roll 1d20
>>27493840Lucas is about to get rapet
>>27493830Unfortunately, you can't see them from where you are. They must have moved deeper into the jungle or something.>Go in after them.>You probably won't find them. Let's go find Menendez instead.>Other

>>27493902>>You probably won't find them. Let's go find Menendez insteadNot without a buddy
>>27493902You sigh and head for the nearest gate. A quick query to the gate guards and they confirm that Lucin and the others had recently exited just a few minutes ago. Well, at least the trail was still warm. "Are you sure about going off into the jungle on your own?" The gate guard asks. "The jungle is pretty dangerous at any time of the day.""I can handle myself." You say, patting your M60. You made sure you were prepared, after all."Whatever you say." The guard shrugs and opens the gate for you. You quickly cross the cleared area between the wall and the treeline designed to be a killzone in case of an attack. No point in making yourself a target for potential snipers. In a few seconds, you reach the treeline, and now the jungle seems a lot more foreboding now that you're up close. However, you came too far to back out now. You take a deep breath to gather your courage and step inside.>roll 1d20

>>27494031As you creep through the jungle, you still can't find any trace of Lucina. In fact, you don't see a trace of ANYBODY. However, you do get the feeling that you're being followed. An ever so slight rustling of movement just behind you and to the side. You're not sure if it's a person or an animal, but it's definitely something.>Call out a warning.>Retreat back to the base.>Ignore it and keep going.>Fire a burst of MG fire at its general direction.>Other

>>27494300Apparently it's over. I guess it was probably just a joke or something.
>>27494119"Who's out there?!" You yell, pointing your MG at the direction of the noise, and then you yell the challenge word. "Lance!"There's not answer, just more rustling. You're about to pull the trigger when the source of the noise finally reveals itself. It's big, ugly, noisy, and extremely smelly, with a hairy body, tusks, and a large snout...It's a goddamn wild boar. And a very angry one at that. The thing just comes charging out at you screaming.>Shoot it!>Dodge!>NOPE>Other

Rolled 16>>27494393Your eyes widen at the sight of the boar. Even if you shot it, and you had no doubt your MG had enough power to take it down, the boar's momentum was going to carry it straight into you anyways, so you desperately roll out of the way in an attempt to dodge.>roll 1d20

The boar rams you full in the chest, knocking the air out of your lungs and send you sprawling to the ground. However, the one good thing your armor does is soak most of the impact, but the trauma plates have literally cracked from the force. Your gun was also knocked from your grasp, and is lying just out of arm's reach of you.

Rolled 16>>27494808Come on natural one
Guys quick, give a manly speech about beating up boars for the optimism bonus.
Rolled 19>>27494808I'm kinda scared to roll to be honest
>>27494808I'll abstain for now.
>>27494828You shouldn't be. That's a dead boar.
Aww yeh, our luck has urned. Now let's ride that pig all the way to base. Bacon or a new mascot!quickly, while the dice are rolling high, let's start doing improbable shit!
>>27494828YOU JUST GOT US WILD PORK! or a new pet
>>27494828The boar struggles, and you very nearly lose your grip several times, but you manage to find an opening where you can risk letting go with one hand to draw your knife, and you jam it in the boar's throat several times before it can finally shake you off. You're sent rolling through the dirt and when you get up, you can see the boar still standing. However, it's obvious it's on its last legs. Blood is leaking profusely from its throat and its squealing has become a pained gurgle. It teeters and totters on its feet, as if it's about to fall over any second, but it remains standing. Defiant to the end.>Finish it off with your gun.>Finish it off with your knife.>Just stay back and let the blood loss do its work.>Other
>>27494865DON'T TEMPT THEM
>>27494865Dont push your luck.They're listening.
>>27494865Oh yeah, we gave Sam a dog last quest. Should we get a new pet?
>>27494877>>Finish it off with your knife.
>>27494877>Finish it off with your knife.it is the only way
>>27494877>>Finish it off with your knife.Remember the rules of the hunt
Rolled 19>>27494877Mutter an apology and kill it with your knife dexter style
>>27494877>Finish it off with your knife.
>>27494896B-but I'm scared of the hunt...
>>27494877>Finish it off with your knifeLook it in the eyes as we do, respect the prey
>>27494877>Finish it off with your knife.Never shoot twice. If you shoot twice they can find you.Then drink it's blood. We gotta drink if it's our first. It's the Spirit of the Boar. When we drink it, we'll be a real hunter. His blood will be ours, and once we do that, there's gonna be something different about us. Always.
>>27494877>Finish it off with your gun.Let us get some bacon.
>>27495006Where have I heard that before? Damn, I'm gonna be thinking about this all night.
>>27495006Did...did we just find our Spirit Animal?
>>27495057Our personal heraldry must now contain a boar!
>>27494877Well, you were no hunter, so you really didn't know the custom of dealing with a cornered, mortally wounded animal, but something from Reznov's story yesterday, his lamentation on Dimitri's undignified death, moved something within you. This boar... it only attacked because you were bumbling through its territory, and it fought tooth and tusk for it. Even if it DID try to kill you, it didn't deserve to die a slow death from blood loss, or to be finished off by something as crude as a gun.You walk forward, knife drawn. The boar eyes you warily, but it doesn't have the strength to do much else."Ssshh, it's all right. It'll be over soon." You whisper before jamming the knife directly into the back of its neck, severing its brain stem. The boar twitches and then falls over, finally dead.You stand over the slain board, blood covering your hands, and you're left wondering what to do."HEY GUYS I THINK I HEARD IT OVER HERE!" You hear Mary-Kate's voice ring from the trees."MK," You can hear Morgan sighing, "we're not going to find that boar if you keep scaring it off with your yelling."At that moment, Lucina, Morgan, and Mary-Kate come out of the bushes, and the first thing they see is you, covered in blood, standing over the body of a very very dead boar.You all stare at each other rather awkwardly.>Insert witty comment.
>>27495174"I can explain everything."
>>27495174I brought home the bacon!
>>27495174Um...who wants pork for dinner?
>>27495174"Uuuuuuh, oops? Were you hunting this?"
>>27495174So, I meant to take a left turn and now look what happen
>>27495174"Too late, I already killed it. Finders Keepers."
>>27495174"This isnt my fault"Not a serious suggestion
>>27495174"I swear to god, it told me it was 18."
>>27495205>I brought home the bacon!this
>>27495174>touch knife to lips in a "hush" gesture"Next time you go hunting, try being quiet."
Rolled 14>>27495174*smile and wave as if nothing had happened*"Hey guys, I've been looking for you."
>>27495209Going with this.
>>27495209>the tiny faux-minigun in the front bumperThat's adorable.
>>27495209Supporting this, this is a pretty awkward situation.
>>27495217This this all of my this
>>27495209Voting for this.Also, lol is that a A-10 van?
>>27495209I like this.
>>27495234I like this
Rolled 11>>27495234 So do I can we combine it with the comment ?
>>27495234>>27495209Both of these.>*smile and wave as if nothing had happened*>"Hey guys, I've been looking for you.">"Um...who wants pork for dinner?"
Rolled 7>>27495174as an addition"He started it."
>>27495174"Hey guys, I've been looking for you!" You smile and wave, and then look down at the boar. "Oh, and also, we're apparently having pork for dinner tonight.""Hmmm." Lucina is already kneeling over the boar, inspecting it. "Knife wounds to the throat and spinal cord. Quick and clean, done up close. I'm impressed, Lucas.""Holy crap are you sure you want stay as a Gunner?" Mary-Kate blinks. "That's straight up scout or shocktrooper shit right there!""Lucas, what the hell are you doing out here, and why are you ALONE?!" Morgan yells, apparently angry at you. "That boar could've KILLED you!">Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!>To be fair, the boar attacked me first.>Yeah, that was pretty stupid of me.>Other
Rolled 15, 15 = 30>>27495391>>Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!
>>27495391>>Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!
>>27495391>>Yeah, that was pretty stupid of me.then>Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!
>>27495391>To be fair, the boar attacked me first.
>>27495391>Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!
>>27495391>Yeah, that was pretty stupid of me.
>>27495391>Yeah, that was pretty stupid of me.To be fair, stumbling around in the jungle yelling loudly in an attempt to hunt boar is pretty stupid of YOU.
>>27495391>>Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!>>Yeah, that was pretty stupid of me.
>>27495391>>Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!>I swear! I also may or may not have a psychotic killer lady hunting for my hair.
>>27495391"I told you already, i was looking for you. What are you doing out here?"
>>27495509this. we just told them why we came here.
>>27495391"Sorry, I was just looking for you guys!" You say apologetically. "I honestly didn't mean for any of this to happen.""Well, I guess this brings our little hunting trip to a close." Morgan sighs. "Lucas, don't be stupid and wander the jungle alone. And MK, you could stand to be a bit less noisy when we're hunting.""Sure thing!" Mary-Kate nods. "Sorry, Morgan.""Come on, let's hurry back!" Lucina says, picking up the boar by herself. "With this heat and humidity, the meat's going to spoil fast!"That night, you all have a sort of mini celebration. Considering you had subsisted on field rations and slop for the past few weeks, fresh pork was something of a huge deal. You and the rest of Wraith team choose a quiet, secluded spot of the base, well away from the rest of the personnel so they wouldn't find out. Falynn sets up a small fire pit and spit to get the boar cooked. Bragg and Runaround bring a bunch of drinks. Even Menendez drops by, apparently due to Falynn inviting him. Simo is nowhere to be found, though Morgan says he's still busy.As the boar cooks, you tell everybody the story of how you faced the boar and won in single combat. However, you did add some embellishments, like how you slew it and drank its blood in order to gain its power. You might have gotten a bit overboard with that."You know, that was a really impressive thing you did." Lucina smiles as she sits next to you. "What did it feel like, defeating it in battle?">It felt exhilarating.>I felt kind of bad, actually.>I didn't really feeling anything, honestly. It just sorta happened.>Other
>>27495687>>I didn't really feeling anything, honestly. It just sorta happened.
>>27495687>>It felt exhilarating.
>>27495687>>I felt kind of bad, actually.
>>27495687I don't really think hunting an animal is a "battle". I mean, I wasn't looking for it, and it was probably just scared and agitated. It was just a matter of survival. The boar, or me.
>>27495687>I felt kind of bad, actually.Also, shouldn't we get a portion to Sparky and Edwin?
>>27495737>It was just a matter of survival. The boar, or me.that sounds like a battle to me.
>>27495687>Other"It's complicated. On the one hand, I'm not gonna lie, it felt great. I felt like I was alive, more than usual, when I was fighting it. On the other hand, I felt kind of bad having to kill it in the end. I mean I just came stumbling into it's territory like a bull in a china shop, and it was just trying to protect it's home."
>>27495756No visitors. But this could be a good excuse to go visit them. Maybe they'll let us if we are bringing good food to the sick and bribe them with some pork
>>27495687>I felt kind of bad, actually.Huh, come to think of it, I wonder if Falynn reminds Menendez of Josefina in some way...>>27495756Agreed, they shouldn't miss out on the juicy pork.
>>27495687>I didn't really feeling anything, honestly. It just sorta happened.
>>27495687>I felt kind of bad, actually.
>>27495687>I felt kind of bad, actually.>>27495779Plus Sparky would lose it if she hears that she missed out on the barbequed pork.
>>27495687>I felt kind of bad, actually.Also, agreeing with the others that we should bring Sparky and Edwin some of the goods.
>>27495687>I felt kind of bad, actually
>>27495855Even better.Give one the beer, give the other the pork.They have to share.
>>27495687"I felt kinda bad, actually." You sigh. "On the one hand, I'm not gonna lie, it felt great. I felt like I was alive, more than usual, when I was fighting it. On the other hand, I felt kind of bad having to kill it in the end. I mean I just came stumbling into it's territory like a bull in a china shop, and it was just trying to protect it's home.""Yes, I can understand not taking enjoyment in your kill." Lucina nods. "Boars are living things, too. Honestly, I'd never trust anybody who enjoys killing. Only bad things can come from that.""Thanks, Lucina." You smile."Hey! Look who's finally shown up!" Bragg grins.You turn to see Simo arriving with Edwin and Sparky in tow, though they still had bandages in several spots. Apparently, their infirmary stay was so long because the medics were trying to conserve ragnaid."And I hope this teaches you why it's a bad idea to slip explosives into people's pockets, Sparky." Simo says in his lecturing tone. "And no, I don't care if you say your Uncle Vinnie did it all the time. I suspect he's not at all entirely sane.""Fine." Sparky grumbles, but her expression quickly brightens when she realizes there's freshly cooked pork for dinner.Edwin has an annoyed look as well, probably because he was stuck in a bed next to her for two entire days."Tough day?" You ask him."Honestly that girl is insufferable." Edwin sighs. "She doesn't behave in any way I can rationally predict.""Yeah, Sparky is kinda like that." You shrug.>Prod Edwin to try to get to know Sparky better.>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.>Other
>>27496118>>Prod Edwin to try to get to know Sparky better.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.No sense trying to shove people together.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.Don't push it people.
>>27496118>Prod Edwin to try to get to know Sparky better.we matchmaker nao?
>>27496118>Prod Edwin to try to get to know Sparky better.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.I dont see him pushing lucas into the lap's of ther girls. Just leave it.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.Eh, it's kind of hilarious to watch them flail around with no idea what they're doing.Hey, we should ask him what his stay with her is like!
>>27496118>>Prod Edwin to try to get to know Sparky better.Won't be so unpredictable if you spend more time around her.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.No worries.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.No, for the love of God, do not try and push people together. Let them do it at their own pace.>>27496155Oh yes, I'm kind of curious what went on.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.>Ask Edwin what happened during their time together in the infirmary.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually."So what happened Edwin?"
The closest thing I can compare the two of them to are: Analog and Digital.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.
>>27496118>>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually....You people never learn do you?
>>27496118>Eh, he'll figure it out on his own eventually.>"And no, I don't care if you say your Uncle Vinnie did it all the time. I suspect he's not at all entirely sane."
>>27496118>Prod Edwin to try to get to know Sparky better.Let's try to have some progress instead of lulz
>>27496118You briefly consider trying to prod Edwin to get to know Sparky better, but decide against it. After all, who were you to tell other people how to handle their romantic interests when you were in a romantic tangle yourself? However, there was one thing that was nagging at you..."Hey Edwin, what exactly happened while you were in the infirmary with Sparky?" You ask."I do not want to talk about it." Edwin shakes his head.>Ok, I won't ask any further.>Come oooooooooon!>Other
>>27496361>>Come oooooooooon!There's nothing like meddling in someone else's business.
>>27496249>>27496178Arguably this is wingmanning, not matchmaking, due to there being clear signs of interest there. I'm personally opposed to pushing right now, in favor of waiting 'til Edwin KNOWS what he wants and offering to help at that time, but still.
>>27496361>Come oooooooooon!>>27496260Well, this IS the guy whose reaction to getting blown up by a Chinese Laundry Store (twice as well, though much later in his career) was "It was like a sign from God."
>>27496361>Come oooooooooon!You can't just leave us hanging man!
>>27496389>though much later in his careerFuck, I meant "though the second was much later in his career".
>>27496361>Come oooooooooon!Please say that Sparky got drunk on meds and hilarity ensued.
>>27496361>Come oooooooooon!we'll give him his space, but no so much.
>>27496361>>Come oooooooooon!"You know have to get your version of it out before sparky comes out and claims you touched her at night."
>>27496118>"And no, I don't care if you say your Uncle Vinnie did it all the time. I suspect he's not at all entirely sane."Meh, the worse Vinnie did was troll someone into thinking that he'd drunk nitroglycerin and was about to blow up.
>>27496439>drinking nitroglycerin turns you into a DRAGON.
>>27496447nah, just makes you a walking bomb. Unless, you have a heart problem, in which case you've just taken you daily medication.
>>27496439STOP! That's Nitroglycerin. Don't move and don't breathe and don't do ANYTHING. Except pray.
>>27496361"Come ooooooon!" You plead. "You can tell me!">roll 1d20
>>27496500>>27496506>>27496509Does the nice guy potential work for this?
>>27496500"Okay! If it'll get you to be quiet!" Edwin groans. "That night, well, there was a hole in the mosquito net for Sparky's bed, and, you wouldn't know it, but Sparky is deathly afraid of bugs, especially the ones that bite.""Really?" You gasp."Yeah, apparently." Edwin sighs. "So well, she starts getting hysterical, and I don't want her making a scene so I did the logical thing and offered to let her sleep with me in my bed because my net was intact.""Oh. My. GOD." You burst out laughing. "How could you have not realized the implications of that?!""Like I said, I didn't want to make a scene." Edwin grunts, his face getting a bit red. "And there, I've told you what happened, so we will speak no more of it!""Okay, okay!" You grin."Oh, you shouldn't take it so bad." Lucina shrugs. "Me and Lucas used sleep together all the time."At this point you almost spit out your drink. Damn you Lucina and your social blindness! Why did it have to strike now of all times?!"Oh, that's something I'd have to keep in mind." Edwin grins."Truce?" You croak."Truce." Edwin nods.After a bit more partying, the drinks and the pig slowly begin to dwindle. As the little dinner party dies down, Simo takes the moment to clear his throat and gather your attention.(cont)
>>27496663"Okay Wraith Team, I got an announcement about our next mission." Simo says. That perks all of you up. "I got off the horn with San Salvacion Military Command, and they said that while intelligence was valuable, they would not officially sanction an incursion into Erusian territory.""So, we're not going in?" Mary-Kate asks, a bit dejected."I didn't say that." Simo shakes his head. "You have to read between the lines. SSMCOM basically told me that we are free to send operatives into Erusea, but they will not be official sanctioned. That means if anybody is caught on the other side of the border, don't expect rescue, because San Salvacion, and by extension us, are going to pretend you don't exist.""And you want us to go in anyways?" Morgan asks."I didn't say that either." Simo sighs. "Look, Wraiths, I want to get to the bottom of this rebel business as much as any of you, but I'm warning you that it's going to be incredibly dangerous if we try to carry this any farther. Now, I know Hudson and his team are skilled, but they're going to need all the help they can get. Due to the danger, I'm not going to order anybody to participate. It'll be volunteer only. But we also have to keep this unit small because we're aiming for stealth, not firepower. I'm only letting three or four people, and only the BEST and BRIGHTEST we got. We can't afford to screw up.">Choose your team!
>>27496663Damn Edwin. You dont show it but you really are playa arent you.
>>27496672Us, Lucina, Sparky, Morgan is what I would say.
>>27496672Lucina, Edwin, and Morgan.
>>27496672Lucina, Lucas, Sparky, Falin.I really want Edwin and Morgan in it too but others are more crucial i guess.
>>27496672Merc.What classes are Hudson's team?Knowing their makeup will let up round up the team.
>>27496672Lucina, Edwin, Morgan, and Lucas.
>>27496672We definitely need Sparky and Falyn as firepower and engineer. Lucina is always the ace. Fourth would be Lucas. We will not have a sniper and Edwin would help as a strategist but, you cant have it all.>Lucina>Falyn>Sparky>Lucas
>>27496728Heres the strange thing.I suspect I might vote for leaving Lucina behind. If i'm not mistaken, hudson's team is all scout/stormies.
>>27496741i thought the same. then i've shaken and come to my senses. it is Lucina we are talking about.
>>27496730Sniper, machine gunner who can double as storm, engineer, scout.Looks like a good team.
>>27496716Chequita is a Scout. Hudson, Mason, and Woods are all Shocktroopers. Because Shocktroopers are now the equivalent of modern day Riflemen (trained to be able to use a specialist weapon if needed but at penalty), they are a very generalist unit.
>>27496687>Lucina>Charlotte>Sparky>EdwinCharlotte hasn't gotten much time, and Sparky can double as demoman, which is what we really only need for this mission. Plus I'm enjoying all the times we get into someone else's head instead of Lucas all the time.
>>27496741Woods is Stormtrooper for sure, and probably has a Potential called "You Can't Kill Me!"I'd peg Mason as Scout or Stormy, although I'd actually lean Scout, though I can't put my finger on why.
>>27496764Is Simo and bragg coming along or just the 3/4?
>>27496777Mason as a scout? really?please tell me you've played black ops...
>>27496774Supporting.Also, adding in the Lucas won't be needed much because of how many Shocktroopers are on the other team.
>>27496774Going with this, being in Lucas' head all the time is getting a little stale.
>>27496787THeres a very meta reason for having lucas along.Optimism.
>>27496774Yeh why not.
>>27496777>called "You Can't Kill Me!"Once per thread he can cause a potentially fatal attack to not hit him due to happenstance (mechanical failure, empty chamber, just a regular miss, et cetera)?
>>27496774This.Also, man, that was even more embarrassing than I thought!
>>27496774Not charlotte.We're doubling up heavily on stormies as it is already.
>>27496728This. If we are not taking lucas, take Morgan in his stead.Assume control over Falyn.
>>27496815Nuts to meta, I want characters that aren't Lucas. Heck, I'll be happy with Bragg too, least he hasn't gotten much character time.
>>27496774>>Sparky>>Edwin>Stealth over firepower>Brings both lancers
>>27496834I was agreeing with you.Just sayin.
>>27496774Alright, this. Charlotte hasn't gotten much screentime anyway.
>>27496786Dude was a Tunnel Rat, which was historically some pretty Sneeky Git shit. Admittedly my huge predilection for grabbing a FAL at every opportunity during the game probably affected my impression as well (as, if I remember right, an early thread stated that Scouts normally favor battle rifles).
>>27496837fucking this, everyone suddenly forgot this needs to be a stealthy group, otherwise we're going to end up disowning them and listing them as MIA ffs
No charlotte. We already have a shitton of her type in team.
>>27496845Oops, sorry, I was replying to >>27496809
>>27496774HELL NO.Char is already a stormie. We don';t need to bring another.And BOTH Lancers?Seriously, we need to move fast and light, not bring in the big shit.
>>27496855Disavowing*, fucking autocorrect
Okay, so general consensus I seem to be getting here is:>Lucas>Lucina>Morgan>FalynnUnless you want to swap Lucas out for somebody else?
Merc can we lock in specific characters first?
>>27496898looks good to me
>>27496898I think we really should bring in Sparky, having a demoman is always useful.
>>27496898Firstly is bragg and simo joining the team, regardless of the 4 too?
>>27496898This can only result in harem shenanigans. Might as well.
I wonder if our favorite sleepy scientist could suppress an automatic rifle for us, just so we have a "sneaky" option for missions where we may need it...
>>27496898SOMEONE NOT LUCAS.Sparky or Edwin at least, we need the AT should things get hairy.
>>27496898that should be fine
>>27496898Take Sparky instead of Lucas. We need a lancer.Control Falynn.
>>27496920Might be a good idea to swap for the LMG/rifle, methinks.
>>27496916Falynn is an engineer, that is what demomen are for fucks sake
>>27496916Be warned, Sparky is NOT an official demo. Compared to Falynn, who has actually received formal military training on the subject, Sparky is more of a very talented amateur. Plus she can't carry as many explosives because she has to carry her lance ammo as well.
>>27496898Edwin or Sparky, we need the AT and they have useful ultility skills as well.And fuck, 4chan keeps eating my posts.
>>27496898Only configuration that makes sense to me
>>27496918Nope. Hudson is assuming automatic command. Can't risk two or three important squad leaders in a single high risk mission, you know?
>>27496939Well we're bringing in Falynn as well right?If not, just bring Edwin, he has a useful skill and still provides the vital AT.
>>27496955Roger boss.Thanks for the info.We'll need sniper + machine gunner support then.
>>27496955Merc, can we bring disposable lances? Will Falynn be able to pack some or we each lug an extra one?
>>27496939Edwin then, though Sparky might be handy in a pinch.I'm just tired of being in Lucas' head all the time and highly enjoy the time when we're not.
>>27496933Yeah, this is the equivalent of a LRRP into Cambodia or Laos, we need to pack for light weight, stealth, and high mobility.
>>27496955Then >>27496898 is good.>lucas' fw he realised what he signed up for.
>>27496898Replace Lucas with Edwin.
>>27496934Oh shit, I completely forgot Engineers do that like a dumbass. Dropping my support for Sparky @ >>27496916 and putting Edwin in place of Lucas or Morgan is a solid idea.
>>27496980we haven't even played lucas all that much. we were sparky and then we got a storytime. i am still fine with controlling falynn though.
>>27496898ONE lancer, preferably Edwin. We are severely lacking in AT here people should things get fucked.
>>27496898this is good
>>27496898This is good.Pack disposable lances if we can.
>>27496898Go with Edwin.>>27497003For all of one thread.Out of 15 so far.
>>27496898Okay, so we narrowed it down to whether we should bring Edwin or Lucas.Official vote going out now. Because I don't want samefagging this vote will only be open for seven minutes from this timestamp.
>>27497007demo pack + stormie rush.Also its not like we're assaulting an airfield again. This is jungle creeping.We can use mines and demopacks.
>>27497021>For all of one thread.>Out of 15 so far.umm, he is the main character...
>>27496898Replace with Edwin then, you idiots can't seem to recognise that AT happens to be a niche we need to fill.>>27496939But, uh, didn't she receive training from one of the foremost demolitionsists available?
>>27497028Lucas plsAlso, seven minutes is waaaaay too long for samefag prevention.

>>27497028Lucasalso, if you want to stop samefagging, 7 minutes gives us 2 minutes to get an extra vote in, the filter is only 4:30 minutes long...
>>27497028Voting for lLucas.
>>27497028Edwin.Also i could samefag at leastfive times during that time.
>>27497039It wasn't formal training. It was really more of a hobby for both of them.And in either case it's not Sparky's assigned specialty. She is neither equipped nor trained to be the squad demo expert.
>>27497028>>27497054Lucas, rather. I'm an idiot who typed the wrong name.
>>27497028>seven minutesthe filter lasts 5 minutes... and you need to restrict what text they have in a post to stop samefagging, like using capitalisation or characters and periods...so samefag away guys
>>27497028Edwin.>>27497034So? I still want a different character.
>>27497028Merc if you wanted to do that, you should specify how the votes should be.Like:>Lucasor>Edwin [ONLY]
>>27497028>Official vote going out now. Because I don't want samefagging this vote will only be open for seven minutes from this timestamp.Merc, have a look at how Shadow Quests does voting, that stops samefagging, your method just means they can't samefag after 7 minutes...
>>27497028Going with Edwin
>>27497028>>27497028>Okay, voting's done.Simo is caught off guard a bit by the number of hands he sees go up and he just shakes his head and smiles."Idiots, every one of you." You mutters. "Okay, Lucina, Morgan, Falynn, you three are in. Hmmm, Edwin, are you sure you can sneak around with a lance?""I'd be disappointed in myself if I couldn't." Edwin replies."Okay, Hudson is planning to move out the day after tomorrow, you've all got a day to prepare, you got it?""Roger!" Everybody says.>ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL>Edwin>Falynn>Lucina>Morgan
>Lucas looks at team hes going with"Edwin, edwin, switch with me! They might need AT support."Edwin takes a good look at Lucas and the group and GRINS."Sorry, Lucas, but I'm in a bit of a preoccupied right now!" Also, now entering samefagville.Edwin looks a
>>27497141>EdwinI was always curious about what went on in his head.
>>27497141Seriously merc.All those edwin votes at the end...oh well...>Falynn
>>27497141>EdwinI just realised that everyone there is someone on the waifu triangle.Thank God we didn't go with Lucas.
>>27497175That was kind of the point
>>27497141>Edwin>>27497180Well considering that the waifuers have completely embittered me on Lucas, I am now thanking my lucky stars.
>>27497141>EdwinSo what's the mind of an arrogant genius look like?
>>27497141>EdwinMight as well go with the person who will have the most influence on operations.
>>27497141>EdwinI've been pretty curious about what a quest with him as the star would've been like.
Apparently we now waifu edwin.
>>27497228All the Edwin samefag.
>Having social interaction is waifuing.Jesus /tg/ the autism it hurts.Also Edwin is now our BFF.
>>27497141good god the samefagging is thick in here, Merc you really need to get in control of the voting, cause your current system sucks
>>27497228more like people samefagging to avoid waifuing.
>>27497263social interaction is not getting into someone's head and being them.Also, current Edwin socialisation with anyone non-sparky/lucas is to look down on them and keep to himself. We're restricting interaction quite abit as he'll not be the first to initiate.
>>27497141>ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROLYou are now EDWIN HOHENZOLLERN, son of the famous Karla Hohenzollern and member of the Demons of Randgriz. You've just volunteered for a very dangerous scouting mission into enemy territory. Normally, your general strategy would be to avoid the overly dangerous assignments, but you feel that your performance hasn't been up to par in the past few weeks, and you needed a good way to prove yourself. Now was the time to do it, you believe.You've got one day to prepare for the mission, and you have oh so much to do.>Study Erusea's geography so you'll have an idea of where you're going and how to navigate it.>Visit Nemo to try and obtain any upgrades if possible.>Round up your other teammates and try to coordinate with Hudson on how to operate.>Other
>>27497314welp, time for me to leave, let me know when this gets interesting again
>>27497314>>Round up your other teammates and try to coordinate with Hudson on how to operate.NOW LETS COMPARE THE NUMBER OF VOTES.
>>27497314>Study Erusea's geography so you'll have an idea of where you're going and how to navigate it.We need an escape route.>>27497074Actually, Merc, is it possible to get a perk for her that will allow her to perform the same duties as a fully trained demoman later on? I mean, the foundation is there right?
>>27497314>>Visit Nemo to try and obtain any upgrades if possible.
>>27497330>Actually, Merc, is it possible to get a perk for her that will allow her to perform the same duties as a fully trained demoman later on? I mean, the foundation is there right?SHE IS A LANCER NOT AN ENGINEER FOR FUCKS SAKE
>>27497314>Study Erusea's geography so you'll have an idea of where you're going and how to navigate it.If things get bad, it'll be good to know a few backdoors to get the hell out.
>>27497312Nah I mean more how everyone yells that your waifuing no matter what character you interact with.Though I don't mind being Edwin just because he is pretty awesome.
>>27497344Yeeeees, which is why I mentioned it as a perk.Besides, a fully trained backup demoman would be very useful.
>>27497330why the fuck would you want that, she is a lancer and should specialise as one instead of you trying to shoehorn her into a DEMOMANS and forgetting Falynn exists
>>27497314>>Study Erusea's geography so you'll have an idea of where you're going and how to navigate it.
>>27497357You're treading dangerously close into special snowflake territory anon.
>>27497363>>27497357>Backup>For the price of one perkIs reading comprehension foreign to you or something?
>>27497356Ah. To clarify I was more being sarcastic with the samefagging being rather obvious.Hes ok. He'll need to loose the ice queen and spend more time with sparky to get awesome.
>>27497357well then why doesn't Lucas train in every single class including fencer?
>>27497371Special snowflake for being trained to more fully take advantage of preexisting skills related to one narrow field of another class?I mean really?
>>27497292I'm honestly figuring that I'll just enact QM fiat if I suspect rampant samefagging.Not quite sure how Shadow Quest handles it, unless you mean cutting off voting at 5 minutes.
>>27497381Oh my fucking God.If you don't know the difference between that and what I'm suggesting, then you're a retard.
>>27497388rampant samefagging has happened on the last 3 votes Merc...for the love of god look into how SQ handles its votes when this thread is done
>>27497388He has a very specific format.>>Quote post number[vote]No formatting or reasons allow.That triggers the 5 minute timeout for the exact same reply and any replies with extra stuff will be discounted.
>>27497395that is exactly what you sound like right now Mr special snowflake
>>27497398I did except i see no difference, unless 4chan handles linked, single number posts differently from other other posts.
>>27497314>Visit Nemo to try and obtain any upgrades if possible.
>>27497371The vast majority of special forces are special snowflakes according to /tg/. Discuss.
>>27497410Ah, well that explains it, then. The more you know, I guess.I'm probably going to call a revote next thread anyways. Personally this thread is ending on kind of a sour note for me.
>>27497417all you need to do to get around the filter is change a single character, which is very easy when voting for names, but very hard when voting for a single digit number
>>274974174chan has a longer delay for the exact same reply I think.
>>27497413How about instead of just randomly calling me a special snowflake dude, you back it up with an actual argument?Because I'm hearing nothing but snowflakesnowflake and snowflake.
>>27497398How about you just tell him how its done instead of telling him to look at it?
>>27497435Sounds like it might be for the best merc.
>>27497435Might I suggest also having a time limit under the 5 minute timeout?Say 4 minutes or so.
>>27497314You feel that you really can't be bothered going to to mingle with the others. If any of them were competent, and you hope they were, they'd be doing their own preparations for the mission not relying on you to do it for them. If there was one thing you hated more than incompetents, it was moochers.Sighing, you take out one of your many maps of Erusea and begin to study its contents, focusing on the area Hudson is planning to explore.>roll 1d20
>>27497461That's getting too narrow, not everyone is glued to their computer screens.
>>27497380I honestly kind of like the ice queen part. It really makes him and Lucas amusing when they are together and makes them a fairly effective duo.Agreed with sparky though. Actually thinking on it Edwin never really explained how sparky reacted to the thing with the mosquito net being broken.
>>27497435If you do do so, also remember to specify how many ">" infront of the vote or something like "[x]"> vs >>or[x] vs [X]also won't trigger the lockout.
>>27497442someone already did but I'll do it anywayQM posts the vote choice>blah blah blah vote for:>1 :blah blah>2 :blah blahvoters respond with>><link back to post>><the number of the vote they are voting for>no formatting, no reasoning or arguing, you have that before the vote
>>27497474sparky probably set the whole thing up
>>27497474Pretty sure he said that she lost her shit.
Also, I'm just going to nip this in the bud right now. Potentials will in almost all cases be class specific. Sparky's demo expertise will translate into her being able to better use her lance to a greater effect by knowing her payloads and what they can do to take advantage of relevant weaknesses. I honestly have no desire letting characters multiclass because that defeats the point of having specialized classes in the first place.If you wanted her to be demoman so badly then the original proposal should have made her an engineer. However, what's done is done, and we will speak no more on it.
>>27497413Not even that guy but this is really obvious bait man. I can't even figure out why someone would actually take this serious enough to respo->>27497441OH goddam it.
>>27497474Close to panicking maybe?Those short sharp shallow breaths of hyperventilating.
>>27497497Look, it's half-past two in the morning and tensions were running pretty high in the thread.I'm just going to leave it at that.
>>27497475It does for me nigger. I actually tested doing that if it is even 50 percent the same it locks you out. I would know because I had to change something after posting a part of something and it locked me out for like an hour.
>>27497532Lets try this then.[Next few posts I link to you will be the ones.]
>>27497532thats not the duplicate reply filter, thats the spam filter, different things
>>27497470>>27497484>>27497503>>274975114 minutes in between Merc's post and the last roll. Are we becoming afraid of rolling?
>>27497553How does the spam filter work anyway? Because it kept eating my posts when I tried to argue with some people earlier.
>>27497555Theres already been 3 rolls.
>>27497494Kind of wonder if it is the embarrassed lost her shit or the "what the.." lost her shit. Either way it sounds utterly hilarious rereading it.
>>27497511You see that the area you're tasked with scouting has a lot of rivers and swampy areas, places that weren't very conducive for traveling on foot. However, as you consulted several older maps, you realize something. There used to be a large copper mine in the area that was abandoned years ago. If you were lucky, maybe some of the tunnels would lead to that supply base you were looking for?It was worth a thought. Perhaps this mission wouldn't be so suicidal after all.>Okay, we're just going to end it here for tonight. I might run the next thread thursday evening, but definitely friday at the usual time. Check my twitter for updates.>Next thread, though, I am definitely going to set up a revote for the viewpoint character.>I'll still be up for a bit for any discussion or questions.
>>27497555I think its more the samefags aren't samefaggingor it could be we rolled 3 die and rolled well and don't need anymore
>>27497562He's talking about how long the rolls took.
>>27497561honestly, i have no idea, its completely random
>>27497555samefags not samefagging.Drop in interest for the rest. Me at least.
>>27497566How does samefagging affect rolling die of all things?
>>27497588the people samefagging made it look like there were alot more people in thread than there actually were
>>27497584Honestly I'm not happy with the way this thread ended, either.
>>27497689Chin up merc.Just part of what every QM runs into at some point of time.
>>27497689It's one bad bump, we'll get though it.Frankly, I'm surprised it took so long for the issue to come to a head. It says something that people managed to behave this much for this quest.
>>27497756Waifus create such insane passions in people, don't they?
>>27497776Yeeep, both for and against.
>>27497555you know to be honest it's better people don't recklessly roll as in VMQ, many good throws were thrown away.As far as the extra bad samefagging? I blame the usual source.
>>27497832That's not how probability works anon.Still, even if we went with Falynn in the revote, our time was hardly wasted, knowledge of that copper mine is incredibly valuable for the upcoming mission.
>>27497776I always laugh at the anti-waifu vs the waifu crowd. Seems a little retarded to call each other faggots when the guys you are calling faggots will never change their mind anyway.
>>27497852>Implying the dice goddess follows mortal laws of probability
>>27497689Cheer up and just wait for heads to cool, I'm sure people will act more reasonably next thread. Well, as reasonably /tg/ ever gets.
>>27497565A revote on Lucas/Edwin would be nice but wh, I'll roll with what we have.
>>27498341It's ok, if we play hyper aggressive with Edwin we can probably get him offed or sent back to an aid station for awhile.
>>27498593Now why the hell would we do that? VMQ2 is already going to be darker then VMQ1 starting off in the boonies, but we shouldn't go into to something trying to get someone killed or wounded. Dice gods will handle that >>27498341I agree with this but would rather not set a precedent and have become a normal thing, only when it this stupid.
