Well, last night's thread was a bit shorter than anticipated due to posting getting disabled. Anyways, time for VMQ!Archive (1 and 2): http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/6K5rjbC1Twitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandDon'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 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, such as Emmerian special forces, Imperial weapon smugglers, unscrupulous rival mercs, and more...(cont)
>>27698658Currently, you're hiding behind an inexplicably armored coffee table with Falynn and a very well dressed and armed Emmerian while what are undoubtedly Erusean-funded rebels are unloading SMG bullets at you.And the date was going so well, too. Maybe Lara's fear of pineapple was so illogical after all..."You know how to shoot that, kid?" The Emmerian asks, pointing to your handgun."Yeah, of course." You nod."Good. The name's Jack." The man shakes your hand."Lucas.""Falynn." Falynn quips."Look, we're not going to get anywhere just hiding behind this table." Jack says, taking a quick peek around the side before quickly withdrawing as he's met with a hail of bullets. "I count four of them clustered around the van. If you give me some covering fire I think I can flank them.">Ok, you got it.>No offense, but I think I should flank you cover me.>Other
>>27698668>Ok, you got it.Listen to the man with the armored coffee table.Goddammit, now I want one of those...
>>27698658Also, I'm dumb and forgot to link the updated pastebin.http://pastebin.com/N66ki936
>>27698668>you got itBet lucas is wishing for his M60 right about now.
>>27698668>Ok, you got itIt seems like he knows what he's doing
Rolled 16>>27698668>Ok, you got it.Hmm, for some reason 4chan is loading incredibly slow for me. Anyone else feeling it?
>>27698668>Ok, you got it.We know how to give covering fire like no other.
>>27698668>>Ok, you got it.This is pretty exciting, we should go on dates more often.
>>27698668>Ok,you got it.
>>27698710I believe they are doing maintenance at 10 pm Eastern.
>>27698668>Ok, you got it."Also, how the heck do you have an armored table?"
Time to get to business:How are we going to survive telling the Sturmfuhrers, the Petrovich's, and our parents from killing us after they find out we drunkenly kissed Morgan and now dating Falynn?
>>27698668>>Ok, you got it.
>>27698763We did it before the thing with Falynn started.
>>27698668>Ok, you got it.Jack obviously knows what he is doing.>>27698702>NAME: Morgan Hathcock>GENDER: MaleNot completely updated, eh?>>27698763Explain it calmly while running like we never ran before, preferably behind lots of armor.
>>27698763We should be fine for a few months. I mean, it's not like Jager would cross the Atlantic just to have a chat with us oh my god he would totally do that.HE'S PROBABLY ON THE WAY OVER NOW.
>>27698668"Ok, you got it." You say. "You sure you're fast enough.""Hah, that's funny, kid. Watch and learn." Jack gets into a sprinter's crouch, ready to move."Okay, Falynn, let's go!" You yell as you sit up and take aim.>roll 2d20
>>27698763oh for the love of god, its not an issue, it happened when we were drunk for the first time and all parties involved have forgotten about itstow you shadowruns shitnigger
Rolled 14, 13 = 27>>27698836'ere we go.
Rolled 13, 19 = 32>>27698836
I'm starting to really love these date events. First Morgan's date with the museum trip, us kissing her, and ending it with us cross dressing. Now Falynn's event and meeting Jack. How much better can this get?
Rolled 1, 19 = 20>>27698836Lets roll!
Rolled 11, 2, 3 = 16>>27698852...
>>27698829He's got a prototype Ragnite-Jet Fighter, he'll be here soon.
>>27698917So now that Jager is essentially our equivalent to Chuck Norris, how about some jokes?
>>27698933>Chuck Norris, how about some jokes?They ain't jokes, unlike Chuck HE has actually done that shit.
>>27698894You and Falynn fire off a steady stream of rounds at the van where the rebels are using as a makeshift bunker/firing position. Bullets ping off the metal sides, and the rebels hesitate, obviously not expecting any sort of resistance.That hesitation proves fatal for the van driver. Falynn exhales and shoots off the last round in her mag, which drills straight trough the man's throat. The rebel gurgles and tumbles out of the driver compartment, and the remaining three rebels quickly take cover behind the van.Meanwhile, you catch sight of Jack, now hiding behind a mailbox and in a very good flanking position. You both make eye contact.>Continue the pressure while Jack finishes them off.>Flank in the opposite direction and catch the rebels in a pincer.>Other
>>27698859Speaking of Morgan, am I the only one who feels like she's been getting the shaft in terms of development since that incident?
>>27698933It's starting to get pretty annoying by now, just leave it.
>>27698965>>Continue the pressure while Jack finishes them off.
>>27698965>Flank in the opposite direction and catch the rebels in a pincer.
>>27698965>Continue the pressure while Jack finishes them off.>>27698967It's more Lucina for me honestly.
>>27698965>Continue the pressure while Jack finishes them off.
>>27698965>Continue the pressure while Jack finishes them off.Don't fuck it up now people.
>>27698965>Flank in the opposite direction and catch the rebels in a pincer.how much ammo did we bring? Do we have to get worried?>>27698970they were always annoying
>>27699007I always did, other people disagreed, so I just decided to humor them.
>>27698965>Continue the pressure while Jack finishes them off."Also, *I* get to choose where we go on the next date!"
>>27698965>>Continue the pressure while Jack finishes them off.Let's not do this again next time.
Rolled 15>>27698965You slap a fresh magazine in to your pistol and check your ammo pouch. You weren't expecting a serious firefight, so you only brought about five mags total. Well, four now."Falynn, how man mags have you got?" You ask."Well.. um..." Falynn lifts the hem of her tactical skirt and you can see quite a lot of extra mags taped on the inside. "I kinda brought a lot extra when Simo wasn't looking..."Always the dutiful engineer. Well, you guess ammo wouldn't be that big of an issue as long as you stuck with Falynn. WIth your handguns loaded, you both unload into the van once again.>roll 2d20
Rolled 16, 16 = 32>>27699158
Rolled 8, 15 = 23>>27699158
Rolled 9, 18 = 27>>27699158Guns for the guns god
Rolled 17, 5 = 22>>27699158And again!
Rolled 9, 6 = 15>>27699158
>>27699158>mags under the skirtFalynn, flagship of my heart
>>27699162We in the drift now
>>27699158>tactical skirt full of spare magsI can operate to this.
Rolled 1, 11, 2, 2, 6, 12 = 34>>27699162As you fire, one of the rebels takes a chance and breaks cover to return fire. However, a bullet or a ricochet or something hits him the face which causes him to flinch, giving Jack the opening he needs to put a three round burst in the middle of his back, putting him down for good.The other two rebels, now realizing the tables have turned, start spraying their SMGs in a desperate bid to kill or at least suppress you. One aims at Jack while the other focuses on you and Falynn.(cont)
>>27699267>Rolled 1, 11, 2, 2, 6, 12 = 34God damn, these guys can't shoot for shit.
>>27699239Can we build a Jaeger? I think we should build a Jaegar and name if after Falynn's dad.
>>27699300It's the Jack Ryan effect.
>>27699267However, their return fire is largely ineffective. Jack dashes and rolls away as the mailbox he's hiding behind is riddled with bullets. Meanwhile, the second rebel can't quite get a clear shot at you and he wastes his entire mag on the armored coffee table. Realizing they probably weren't going to win this, one of the rebels leaps into the back of the van while the other dashes for the driver's seat.>Shoot him down.>He might be useful alive. Tackle!>Other
Rolled 14, 1 = 15>>27699306>Jaegerception
>>27699306No, we can't build a Jager.We can, however, find one. It seems like something the Valkyrur would make.
>>27699323>>He might be useful alive. Tackle!
>>27699323>He might be useful alive. Tackle!
>>27699323>otherJust shoot out the fucking tires
>>27699323>He might be useful alive. Tackle!"Hut hut!"/tackle"Hike!"
Rolled 7>>27699323"Falynn, cover me." You say as you vault the table. You're in a good position to intercept the rebel, so you think this would be a good chance to capture him. Maybe then you could figure out what the hell was going on.>roll 1d20
>>27699476http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDtbk8sZXbgCommence come at me bro drill.
>>2769947616 is the lucky number tonight I guess.
Rolled 14, 5, 3 = 22>>27699476You manage to tackle the rebel, slamming him into the side of the van and causing the whole vehicle to rock. The rebel gasps as the force of your tackle pushes the air out of his lungs and the back of his head strikes the metal siding of the vehicle, dazing him. You have the perfect chance, now.>roll 1d20
>>27699523>>27699553Wow, you weren't kidding.
>>2769955316 really is today's lucky number.
>>27699553Sixteen Saturday!(It's saturday in Aus shutup)
>>27699553So many 16s.
>>27699544You give the rebel a solid right hook, smashing into his face and causing his head to smack into the side of the van again. The double whammy is just too much for him and he drops like a sack of potatoes.However, at that moment, you hear more SMG fire and you instinctively fall backward as tracers zip inches past your face. From the fresh bullet holes opening up in the side of the van, you realize that the last rebel probably heard the commotion inside and started firing wildly.At that moment, Jack swoops in, ripping the back of the van door opening and firing his pistol three more times. You hear a loud, meaty THUNK inside the van as well as a metallic clang of a gun dropping."Well, I guess that's one way to end a date." Jack quips as he reloads his handgun. "Hm... you're those Gallian mercenaries everybody's been talking about, right? The Demons of Randgriz, or something like that?""Yeah." You nod. Meanwhile, Falynn moves in to police the bodies, scavenging their SMGs as well as any other useful equipment from the van."Well, you did good out there kid. Guess you're worth the money after all." Jack grins."You know, you never said what you did for a living""Oh, me?" Jack shrugs. "I'm just a simple embassy worker.">Okay, we'll go with that.>That's a bunch of malarkey. Who are you really?>Other
>>27699723>Okay, we'll go with that.We're also black ops, right? We know how this works.
>>27699723Wait a beat.>Okay, we'll go with that.
>>27699723>Okay, we'll go with that.And you can call me Archduchess Cordelia for the duration of this conversation.
>>27699723>>Okay, we'll go with that.Don't wanna mess with him after that. Might lose a potential ally.
>>27699723>Okay, we'll go with that....Sure, OK Jack.
>>27699723>>Okay, we'll go with that.
>>27699723>"Oh, me?" Jack shrugs. "I'm just a simple embassy worker.">Okay, we'll go with that."I see."
>>27699723>Okay, we'll go with that.
Well, it looks like due to the site maintenance, we'll just have to continue things on Saturday night. Since we have so few posts right now, I think it would be safe to keep it bumped until then if you can. See you all tomorrow!
>>27699919Holy shit my post from like 3 hours ago went through.At least, I think that's me.Moot stop spilling mountain dew on the servers
>>27699931He had to clean the servers of all the scub buildup. This probably a few months if not years worth of scub buildup
>>27699956Months, pretty sure it's only been a few months since last time there was a downtime for the servers, though knowing how the site is its years of buildup in a month.
>>27699927It's cool man.(Thanks moot)
>>27699927Seems like maintenance is finally over. Shame MC has left.
Remember to keep this bumped until tomorrow night people.
Allow me to say one thing:Regardless of their characters within this quest, Laura and Char are best girls within Infinite Stratos
>>27700894Don't bring the "best girl" argument from IS threads into the thread.
I wonder how much lucas saw when falynn lifted the skirt
>>27701007I'm sorryI've been drinking for 8 hours after getting laid off...aka the best thing that's ever happened to me...I'm actuallu celebrating a bit...because my 2nd daughter might have a familiar name for this thread
>>27701156>because my 2nd daughter might have a familiar name for this thread...what?
>>27701196still gotta talk it over with my wife. Nothing for certainGot a son named Michael and a daugher named Aria. Trying to convince my wife to let me name our 2nd daughter Charlotte
>>27701251But Charlotte comes pre-equipped with the king of all nicknames.
>>27701414Hopefully I'll be able to hold off on the "Red Comet" nicknames until she's older...if my wife approves the name. Honestly my choice wasn't much effected by 4chan...I just love the name Charlotte for a girl. My wife already allowed Aria, so I dunno about Charlotte
>>27701443Charlotte is a good name, the Charlotte's I know are good people too.
Yo Quest Thread, still alive? And thanks friend, I'll see you again.

>>27703959What if they are spats?
>>27704525No, the color of her hair.
>>27704543Her hair's green?
>>27705194Judging from the pic it's like a greenish yellow. But I think she's intended to be blonde like Sam and Charlotte.
>>27701148Enough to excite the imagination, maybe. Probably not high enough to actually see any unmentionables, but a good peek of thigh at most.
while we waithttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02OfZVyd6bE
MC, can you tell me how far in you are with this quest?I almost finished reading part 1, I want to know if I can catch up with this one
>>27707334Ehhhh, I guess like a third of the way in maybe...? I dunno, my basic pot outline is pretty broad so there's plenty of space to add in more stuff if I feel like it.
>>27707474you just made my dayI love your quest, and VC is a pretty rare setting, that you combine it with all kinds of other shit I love just makes it even better.I'll be joining you guys soon
>>27707474Merc, I love both of your quests, but there's something about it that's been bugging me. It feels like the romance and the lock is happening a bit too fast. I dunno, it doesn't feel like things really developed enough between the characters for it to feel that natural yet.That's just what I think anyway. I'm still a fan, of course, I just wanted to get that out there.
>>27707906Something about VMQ 2, I mean, just to specify. Sam and Jager's relationship in the last quest felt right because they slowly grew closer over a large stretch of the quest until they reached the climax of their arc. I dunno if I can say the same about this one.
>>27707936Falynn pretty much reached the climax of her character development right there with the fight against Kravchenko. Normally, you'd expect a throwdown of that magnitude to occur much later into the plot, but because it happened without a lot of the other characters having their shit sorted out, the relationship feels like it happened prematurely, which is probably a reason for a lot of the butthurt and waifu warring of the previous threads. Jager had the chances to build those social links with all his potential love interests, as well as play matchmaker; Lucas didn't have that.
>>27708189That is EXACTLY it. It all felt rushed, and with so much left in the story to go through, I fear that Lucas' interactions with his comrades won't carry nearly as much weight as Jager's in VMQ1. The pacing of the plot and character development in the first one was damn near perfect. VMQ2's pacing doesn't feel as solid.
have some tankshttp://warthunder.com/en/news/294-War-Thunder-Tanks-Tech-Trees-en
>>27708189Excellent analysis. My thoughts precisely. However, we can build towards a second climax of character developement with her. It would not be the normal style, but it could be interesting nonetheless
>>27708333But what about the others? Morgan and Lucina had a promising amount of development in the first ten or so threads, but then they were slowly relegated to the background. Now it doesn't seem like they're getting much development at all, to say nothing of some of the other characters like Mary-Kate. I don't even know where she is at this point.
>>27708333What would that entail, though? Combatting the voices in her head, which might be related to her having daddy issues, since the voice in her head *is* her father?
>>27708378And it's especially discouraging in Morgan's case. A lot of mystery and possible foreshadowing was built around her identity and history, but nothing has been done with it for a while now, and I have no idea when it could possibly turn up again.
>>27708405Oh hey, it's that chick from the American men in black show, I think...what was her name? Possibly she's Jack's exasperated partner in 'embassy work'?
>>27708436Agent L. Agent L was her name. And if Jack's still out doing field work, it means he's still a long-ass ways away from being head of the not-CIA.
>>27708378Think about this, did Lucina even have a choice in being a soldier? She was essentially taught nothing else.
>>27708529What do you expect out of the firstborn of a one man army and an assassin? She has the emotional complexity of a graham cracker--or at least seems like that at first glance. It could be said that growing up in such an environment may have stunted her emotional growth.
>>27708238>>27708333There is nothing preventing further interaction and development with the other girls. It doesn't all revolve around romance, you know, which I think is one of the bigger misunderstandings of most quests.
>>27708378Okay, first thing we do when we get another R&R session is get more development on Lucina and Morgan by getting them into dresses.
>>27708715I was hoping to know about RunaroundWe get in a sweet 'borrowed' vehicle and drag Edwin and Lucas in for a magical ride/car chase worthy of the Blues Brothers.Illinois Nazis not required
>>27708606Merc, I have a question as to why our squad chose to be soldiers instead of a non military profession. It could really help us find out why our characters act the way they do as well as their motivations.
>>27708808we could add imperials to replace the nazi's
>>27708606I know it doesn't have to be romantic. I just don't feel like we're being given that many opportunities to drive this development these days.>>27708715That isn't my idea of development, but whatever. :P
>>27708842Combination of family ties and Gallian compulsory service/universal conscription. Not ALL of the Demon kids decided to enroll in the academy for their stint.
>>27709108Again, the players bear some of the burden in this. It would have never happened if they didn't insist on passing off the MC reins so much.
>>27709189We'll see how it goes, knowing you this relationship might not even last anyway.
>>27709189So because anon can't decide on a name for our tank or which upgrades to get for our guns you take control for the most important character choice after a tie?
>>27709242I'm not sure whether I should take this as a compliment or insult...>>27709254...what?
>>27709374Compliment, teenage relationships aren't permanent by any means and I think you'll do a good job representing that.
Romantic overtones with Lucina:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/26967815/#p26977681 Sleeping arm in armhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27071561/#p27079836 Seeing her in a dress stuns us speechlesshttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27095145/#p27096901 She liked us seeing her in a dress so she bought it (In hindsight and with how this quest is playing out, JESUS CHIRST I'M DYING INSIDE)http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27355678/#p27359723 The nonchalant beautiful commentRomantic overtones with Falynn:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27095145/#p27100713 We boost her confidencehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27114718/#p27119826 More confidence boostinghttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27190831/#p27191295 We check up on her in the infirmary followed by, you guessed it, more confidence boosting and then we call her cutehttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/27339010/#p27343824 Even more confidence boosting after we bump into her because we wanted to help with the defenses, we didn't even stick around when we had the optionKeep in mind Lucas is supposed to be the nice guy white knight.Lucina always had a presence in the votes but we never went and just hung out with her when something was more pressing or we could interact with a character we haven't.tl;dr: Merc hates waifu wars way more then he should and when the RNG gods gave him an opportunity to end them he took it, when a girl asking us out actually somehow ended up in a tie, Merc was already committed.Jesus, SWQ was based or STRIKE WITCHES of all things and yet any waifu wars shit had nothing on the plane loadout shitstorms.
>>27709486rockets are king!
>>27709486As mentioned, a retcon or quick forced break up is a horribly shit idea, but it's a hasty teenage relationship.They could fall madly in love or Lucas could miss hanging out with one of the other girls or Falynn could decide that she only idolized Lucas or Lucina could suddenly undenseify while ignorant of tact or something could happen to Simo and so Morgan wants the one who helped her embrace her femininity or Falynn could go full warcrimes on us or Lucas could scare her shitless with a berserk episode. Who knows?!If there's going to be a VMQ3, instead of one MC we should generate two, that are already a couple. No risk of waifu war collateral or of Merc panicking and hitting the big red button.>>27709853>not whittling down dreadnaughts>then landing at home base safe and soundDo you even smart loadout?
How long until we start back up Merc?
Slow update?Shall we speculate about what happened to the other characters from the first VMQ?Did Elizabeth ever go home to Albion for an interesting vacation? Where is Signum, is she traveling about like a knight errant with a squire? And the glorious Stig, is he now manifested himself in another country for a certain motor vehicle show?
>>27710317About an hour and a half.
>>27710326Sorry, I mean Isolde
>>27710326Oh God, I bet Dimitri's kid is Isolde's squire right now.
I've been thinking on my way back from work: Why is Morgan fighting when she should be hiding?Any theories questers?
>>27711721She want's a purpose in life.
>>27709486this is what I felt like when this happened and passing off the reins off the main character wasn't my choice.Merc, I really felt that when she made such a confession we should've waited till next weekend since this was a development people were focusing on a lot, a sunday/monday night/morning was a bit poor choice to start such a decision; While the development can be expanded on even without romance, i still felt this was a bit hasty on what happened even with the near death experience kind of making sense. Perhaps, I'm still feeling a bit bitter on how it ended but...I can't help but think this way though.
>>27710346Now I'm a bit confused. Reznov said that Dimitri wanted to start a family after the war, but the both of them and their families were taken to Vorkuta. So does Dimitri having a kid even possible?
>OKAY! Let's get this shit started!"Sure, whatever you say, Jack." You say, making it clear that you're not entirely convinced."Heh, no questions? I'm impressed kid." Jack grins. "Hey, um, Falynn, was it? Find anything useful?""Just some SMGs, plenty of ammo for them, and a picture of you." Falynn says, hopping out the back of the van. "Everything else is far too shot up to be of any use."So, you guess Jack was the real target after all."So what, we just wait for the authorities to arrive?" You ask."Listen carefully, kid. You hear that?"You strain your ears, and then wince when you can hear the very familiar sound of gunfire and explosions in the distance. And in no specific direction either, it's happening all over the place. Even now, you can see wisps of smoke risking into the sky from recently started fires."That hit on me wasn't the whole plan, just a part of it." Jack scowls as he picks up an SMG."Hmmm, I guess I can swap out some of the pistol mags for SMG ammo..." Falynn muses to herself as she starts to lift the hem of the skirt. Then she realizes both you and Jack are watching and her face goes crimson. "P-perverts!"Huh, but she did the exact same thing during the battle just minutes before. Then again, you were both sort of distracted at the fact that you were both being shot at. Both you and Jack spin on your heels as Falynn does her work."So what do you say, kid? We stick together for now until this whole thing blows over?" Jack asks.>Sure. Safety in numbers.>I think me and Falynn can take care of ourselves, and clearly you can, too.>Other
>>27712159>>Sure. Safety in numbers.
>>27712159>Sure. Safety in numbers.
>>27712159>Sure. Safety in numbers.>"Heh, no questions? I'm impressed kid." Ha the answers will come later, without the questions being asked by us.
>>27712129I thought Morgan was Dimitri's kid.Another thought had also occurred to me when you mentioned before Morgon or Lucina didn't have enough points to warrent romance. Do they have an equal end amount or do they vary.again, From the other comment, Lucina and even Morgon had similar amounts of interactions like Faylynn and while Faylnn made a huge development due to the side chapter, did we fill her points more quickly because of it or was it that it was easier to trigger her froute compared to the others
>>27712159"I hope this doesn't set a precedent for future dates."
>>27712159"Sure, safety in numbers." You nod."Great." Jack grins. "So, uh, you got any other friends to help us out here?""Yeah, there's the rest of my team, but they' scattered around the city. Finding them all is going to be a bit tough.""Well, the embassy is easier to find, but I'm pretty sure it's one of the places getting attacked." Jack sighs. "It's fortified for this exact sort of situation, but I'm not sure how long they can hold out.""You don't have any of your own men to help out?" Falynn asks from behind."They're all in the embassy, and since the rebels managed to infiltrate the city so easily, we can't very well trust the local cops here, either. You guys are it.""Falynn, you have any idea where the others might be?" You ask."Well..." Falynn bites her lip. "I know Charlotte was dragging MK and Lucina out for more clothes shopping. I'm pretty sure Bragg going to the nearest bar, and considering Simo usually has to keep an eye on him whenever he does that, pretty much everybody else would have tagged along, too.""Jack-""Already ahead of you, kid." Jack closes his eyes. "I know a couple places where we might find your bar hopping friends. There's only one area worth going for shopping in this city, too, but it's a pretty big place.">Go find Charlotte's group.>Go find Bragg's group.>Proceed straight to the embassy.>Other

>>27712635Try Dresses = MK, who is the character I am most interested by. Also getting Lucina cannot go wrong
>>27712429>Go find Charlotte's group.We couldn't be all that effective dragging a bunch of drunk soldiers around, and having a good forward scout will allow us to move through the streets faster.
>>27712655I would normally be laughing at this but now, it just gives me a headache.
>>27712655Just sort of realized that without Morgan, we wouldn't have a crossdressing persona.
>>27712704Or Lucina? (I honestly wanted to do more scenes regarding this before we had to choose but oh well...)Btw, how did we figure out that he was a she before she went ot the bathroom back in the earlier thread
>>27712739That was a slip up made by Merc.
>>27712762Oh so that's what started the trap frenzy.
>>27712739A slip up by Merc, but there were enough hints dropped that Lucas would have been putting two and two together.
>>27712793Wait, do you mean when Lucas was retelling a story about Alek and Elsa or when we snuck up on Simo and Morgan after the team practice?
>>27712429"We'll grab Charlotte's group first." You say. "If Lucina's with them, well, we're going to need a good scout in this terrain.""R-right!" Falynn nods. "I already fixed up the van too, so we can use that to get anywhere we need to! I even added a bit of extra armor to it, too!""Wait, how'd you do that?" Jack raises an eyebrow."I never leave the base without my engineering kit. And, I um...." Falynn looks away guiltily, "I kinda cut apart your coffee table...""Ah, don't worry. The good ol' Emmerian government will pay for that." Jack laughs.You and Falynn hop into the back of the van while Jack takes position in the driver's seat. He pulls on one of the dead rebels' jackets and ties a bandana around his head to conceal his face."So how do you want us to get there? Fast or slow?" He asks as he hits the ignition.You frown. Going slow meant you were less likely to attract suspicion, especially since you were in a rebel van. On the other hand, going fast meant you'd reach your destination faster...>Go fast.>Go slow.>Other
>>27712793Nah, that started when we saw the first picture of her. Several people immediately started saying 'Yep that's a reverse trap.'
>>27712804I thought Lucas was a dense but good willing knight who has in inner urge for violence and rage.What happened to that.
>>27712830Personally I was hoping that Morgan's secret was that she ACTUALLY WAS a boy.
>>27712829>Go fast.Mark the van somehow. Spraypaint, tablecloth, Lucas sitting on top..
>>27712829>Go fast.Fast enough to get Falynn clinging to us.
>>27712851Now that would be a real twist>>27712853Wait... is the van painted black with a bright red spoiler?
>>27712826I think both but it shouldn't have warrant suspicion but it seemed the paranoid anons were right on the money.
>>27712829Gotta go fasthave Falynn paint it red for extra speed
>>27712877Are you implying that we just killed the A-Team?
>>27712851That would have been hilarious, We should have just used Gasper as the profile pic to confuse us even more
>>27712830Hell anyone with a proper trapdar would have gotten pings as early as after the test.
>>27712897No, someone obviously stole their van.>>27712882I was suspicious of Morgan the moment I read his profile when choosing MC, but had little way in confirming them.

>>27712955It would probably involve gaining the trust of squadmates so you can reveal to them her secret. The moral of that sidequest is that if you cannot place trust in your team, your team can't put trust in you.
>>27712944I didn't know you could drift in an armored van. You'd think it would roll or something.
>>27713028Is Jack the Old Stig?
>>27713013That would've been a story I would've like to see. on the flipside, it would've been an otome making us reveal our identity by the 3rd thread
>>27713039... Stop making sense
>>27713054I can imagine how you tell a female squaddie that you're a girl: Grab their hand and place it on your... you know.
>>27713102Shoujou-ai in my quest!Sounds like Magical Girl Noir Quest.Without the Noir or the Magic....
>>27712985Fortunately, you don't seem to attract much attention as you drive through the now abandoned streets of San Salvacion City. Once the shooting and explosions started, the civilians rightly either fled or sought shelter. Surprisingly enough, there weren't really many bodies except for a few policemen and a few unlucky civilians. Then again, you guess the rebels' aim is to terrorize the populace, not slaughter them."We're here." Jack says as he slowly brakes the van to a stop.Up ahead, you see a massive, absolutely MASSIVE building that dwarfed all others around it. Was that... the shopping center?"Heh, if you think that's impressive, you should see the one in Albion." Jack grins. "But back on topic, we've got some trouble."You look to where Jack is pointing. At the main entrance, you can see several vehicles, vans and technicals, parked on the road with about two dozen rebels standing outside. You can see them ushering out a steady stream of terrified shoppers, letting some loose while grabbing others and shoving them into a makeshift holding area."What are they doing..." Falynn whispers."Singling out foreigners." Jack scowls. "One of the rebels' biggest gripes against the current government. Your friends are gonna be in trouble.">Yeah, let's figure out a way inside.>We have to help those people!>Other

>>27713054How would we reveal to our male squaddies that we were female if we were playing as Morgan anyways? All I can think of is placing their hand on her body and it's obvious we can't do that all the time.
>>27713225How about saying "I'm a girl?"
>>27713225Outright tell them instead of being a slut?
>>27713225Yes we can.
>>27713191That...doesn't make me feel any better to be honest. Then again, we have Mary-Kate who maybe possible lesbian.I feel so sorry for Char now.

>>27713284This.>I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE ANY BALLS, TRUST ME I'M THE EXPERT.
>>27713165"We have to help those people!" You say."Well, you got any bright ideas, kid?" Jack sighs, though you can see he's grinning just a bit. "The rebels don't seem too keen on letting them go."You observe the area carefully. There's about a dozen men covering the front entrance, filtering out civilians as they file out. Further back, you see another half dozen guarding the prisoners, who are all huddled together. Right now, you probably guess there's around forty or so. Even farther back, you can see a trailer truck pulling in, no doubt to haul the prisoners away.>Create a distraction with the van and break the prisoners free.>Wait for the rebels to load all the prisoners into the truck and then hijack it.>Other

>>27713225Just thought of a scenario with Morgan as MC from the start with no one knowing her secret. Having to infiltrate a base while disguised as a girl. Morgan then wears her natural look. Everyone thinks "he's" crossdressing and the female squaddies say that "he" needs some work on his disguise.
>>27713367>Create a distraction with the van and break the prisoners free.
>>27713367If for some reason, no rebels are in the back of the truck with the prisoners...>>Wait for the rebels to load all the prisoners into the truck and then hijack it.
>>277134181) They're less likely to suspect what appears to be a girl2) Lucas is in uniform, he''ll need to change anyways3) Not sending Falynn. Nope.4) They have pictures of Ryan. Hes out.5) Like the tactical skirt, hide things underneath.It has the best chance of success.

Doesn't taking enemy uniforms mean that you are now an unlawful combatant?
>>27713531Agreed, if it was Char or Morgon it might have made a running gag since Char's tendency for pranking and Morgan as a former trapTo faylnn, Lucas is a knight in shining armor and a pillar of support to her questionable sanity.
>>27713616The jokes on her! Lucas has questionable sanity as well!
>>27713608I thought they didnt have uniforms in the first place
>>27713649No, he has rage issues. which never turned up again after that incident
>>27713616The pranks from char will just flow to Falynn as well and both will ambush lucas.It'll happen like we saw in the very first thread.
>>27713616Lucas being a pillar of support is good only some of the time. It cannot be a healthy relationship until both of them can allow themselves to stand on their own as well as have someone to lean on for a bit.
>>27713700Falynn and her wrench is the only force that can tame Lucas in bloodlust modeI mena she even clobbers jaeger.

>>27713736I can only imagine the ungodly amount of blood and gore as the rest of the squad stands in shock and awe after Falynn gets hit.
>>27713700I wonder if its even is a healthy relationship considering she just confessed after being beaten up and Lucas agreeing since he kind of relates to that (with his rage).However it worked with Sam and Faylnn is her mother's daughter>>27713736I really wonder if we had picked Lucas, during that side mission would we have seen the rage against the german.
>>27713803It will be similar to what happens when you try to rob a train in Baccano I imagine. Or worse.
>>27713765>Take Jack with you.You people realise that Jack's face being known doesn't matter when we're not planning to be spotted in the first place right?
>>27713765>>Go alone.Look after my.. my girlfriend, pleas."
>>27713836Worst case scenario: Lucas attacks his squad after all the enemies are killed, which didn't satisfy him enough.
>>27713737Lucas' poor poor shins.
>>27713857You mean best case scenario.
>>27713803>As Lucas stands knee-deep in the blood and viscera of his dismembered foes"Lucas, hey LUCAS! She just fell and hit her head on a rock, the bullet missed, she's fine.""O-oh"
>>27713880Show me the worst, I can take it.
>>27713857I don't think that would happen myself. Or if it did Lucina would take us down mostly non-violently, rage vs training is a loss for rage. >>27713880You hush, our squad is good.
>>27713765"Yeah, I can handle it." You say, jumping out of the van. Fortunately, the building was just too damn big for the rebels to to really surround it, so it looks like they were only focusing on the major points of entry, which was both good and bad.You could try sneaking around the building, which would reduce chances of being spotted, but it would take a lot of time, which you might not have much of.Or, you could try to find a way into the building and cut straight through it, but that's where the rebels would definitely be in force.>Go around the building.>Go through the building.>Other

You see an open window the second floor, as well as a bunch of pipes and other assorted things you could use as handholds to climb up to, but that was naturally pretty dangerous and had a high chance of injury.There was a fire door nearby to, but that could only be opened from the inside. You'd have to force the door open somehow, which might give you away.Finally, around the corner, you can see where a van had crashed into the wall, knocking a huge hole in it. There's a trio of rebels at it with a tow truck, presumably to try and pull the van out.>Sneak through the window.>Bust down the door.>Sneak through the hole.>Other

>>27714080You decide to try and climb your way up to the window. It was the one way that would be the least likely to be discovered. You see a drain pipe next to you and grab onto it.>roll 1d20
>>27714185I hope he is to be honest as much as I like his white knighting (I really do) however I wanted this to be done with Lucina in this matter since she has a understanding on killing, though this case of emotion may be new to her she may be the best person for his problem.Faylnn has me worried.

>>27714261...Why am I not surprised?
>>27714236You manage to clamber your way up rather awkwardly, but your climbing training kicks and you keep yourself from slipping or falling. You make your way up to the window and quickly clamber in rolling a bit.Inside... looked like any other department store you've been except... LARGER. There were clothes, toys, perfumes, and other luxury goods as far as the eye could see. The hole floor was dark as well. Power was probably cut, thought that would work in your favor.

"I was in the dressings rooms when the lights went out. Went I got out, everything was already going to hell so I just hunkered down.""Are you armed?" You ask."No." Mary-Kate shakes her head.

The entire floor is essentially abandoned, though. No rebels, and not even any other civvies. The rebels did a really good job of clearing this place out.However, as you pass the stairwells, you see a trio of rebels standing there. Two are blocking the stairs down, while a third is in something of a heated argument with them."I'm telling you, there's fucking SOMETHING on the fourth floor, and it's fucking tearing us apart!" The third rebel yells. "I've got two men confirmed down and another three missing! Tell Ques that I need reinforcements!""We're already stretched thin enough as it is." One of the stair rebels says flatly. "It's a freaking department store. It's not like they've got any soldiers in here or anything!"Well, that was interesting. You get the feeling that at least Lucina was doing fine on her own. you motion for MK to keep moving, but your hand accidentally brushes across a bunch of hanging beads, creating a soft clicking noise. Normally it wasn't that much, but in the near dead silence of the empty floor, you might as well have been blowing a foghorn."Hey wait, did you hear that?" The second stair guard's ears perk up."Shit, it's followed us down here!" The third rebel cries. "We gotta get out of here!""Go check it out." The first stair guard nods to the second stair guard.

Rolled 3MK shoulg get the assault rifle while lucas grabs back thr Smg.
>>27715936And instinctively all that knife training Tarin had subjected you to suddenly kicks in, and everything seems to make sense. You throw your knife and it and it sails in the air, embedding itself right in the rebel's eye.The rebel just exhales and tumbles over, though MK rushes forward and manages to catch his body to keep it from making any noise."Holy SHIT, Lucas, where''d you learn to do that?""MK, we've been through the same training.""Yeah, well, I might have slept through the knife portions...""Focus, MK." You sigh. You take a glance back at the other two rebels. They don't even seem to realize what's happened, and they're in the middle of an argument again."Okay, you can have this back." MK returns your SMG. "I've got something better now. ARs are about the only decent infantry weapon the Imps can make."Hiding the dead rebel under a pile of coats, the both of you make your way to the windows, where you can get a good view of the holding area. Down blow, you can see the rebels are already in the process of herding the prisoners into the back of the trailer truck like cattle. It almost makes you sick. It reminds you of the stories Mom used to tell you about what Imps did to Darcsens in EWII."Okay, what's the plan?" MK asks.>Get down to the first floor and hijack the truck.>Wait for the truck to be loaded. We'll leap onto it while it leaves.>Other

>>27716269Not while we're carrying folks in the back--most likely they're not wearing seatblets.
>>27716139Fortunately, on this end, you see a fire escape ladder that will let you down. You latch to lower it to the ground floor and you and MK slowly and silently climb down. You peek around the corner and see that the truck is still there, idling, but loading is almost finished.Around the truck itself is a knot of tree rebels, who seem to just be in the middle of discussing something, but you're too far to hear them. However, they don't seem to be on alert...>Go in loud. Surprise attack!>Let's be subtle. Lure them around the corner so you can ambush them.>Other

Merc, just wanted to give some feedback on the whole Falynn thing. The wild ride was a little too wild and I kind of missed everything as it happened because I was asleep.I'm not angry about any of this but it felt rushed, like a story I was enjoying got cut short. This wouldn't have bothered me that much except you did exactly the same thing for VMQ1. We never got the point where Jager faced a choice between Sam and Karla. Instead we got this:>A: Holy shit Sam almost died! Better seize the moment.>B: Break Sam's heart, you monster. You wouldn't really pick this would you? WOULD YOU? I wanted to see the Karla ending because I was curious to see how Merc's storytelling ability would have handled a reconciliation like that. But then STUFF happened and that's all history now. I'm okay with that.But then it happened again! We never got to put it to a true vote between several fully developed relationships. The quest never got to the point where it came down to making a decision between Lucina/Falynn/Morgan. Again we got a very cut and dried choice:>A: All waifufags in favour of Falynn please check the marked box>B: All waifufags not in favour of Falynn please check the marked box>C: All in favour of taking some time to think about this REALLY important decision that will have repercussion for the rest of your lif- PFFF HAHAHA, DO IT FAGGOT I DARE YOU.Was that really necessary? I mean the whole Falynn The Line thing was a whole other farce that left a bad taste in my mouth but I wasn't expecting it spill over like that. If you want to avoid waifu wars in the future then don't put social interactions up for a vote. Don't give us a choice, just... make them happen. Have us interact with everyone in ways and locations that make sense to give everyone equal time in the spotlight. Eventually a time will come to make a choice, but let it come as it will.Anyway I'm fine with Falynn but I was hoping for Lucina, on with the show!
>>27716388As a Sam-fag I wasn't particularly upset about the Sam choice in VMQ1. It seemed a natural progression of what was happening. HOWEVER, I do feel that the Falynn choice was a bit rushed as a Lucina-fag. At the same time though, I can respect it as a one-up to the waifu-fags
>>27716459I'm just gutted that we missed getting on Nemo and Lara's routes.
>>27716312"MK, you think you can distract them?" You ask."Oh, with my sexy feminine wiles~?" MK cooes."You know what I mean." You sigh."Yeah yeah, I know what you mean. Hold this for me." She hands you her AR, then steps around the corner and gives the most high pitched shriek you've probably ever heard. "EEEEEEEE! Ruffians!""What the-?" You see the rebels whip around. "There's another one!""Well, what are you waiting for! Go get her!" The apparent leader yells. Two of the rebels dash after MK. She rounds the corner and you toss her her assault rifle. The rebels would be rounding the corner into a world of hurt.>Take them out loud.>Take them out quietly.>Other
>>27716483>Lara>imouto routeHello /a/...I'm here too
>>27716491>>Take them out quietly.
>>27716491>Take them out quietly.
>>27716491>Take them out quietly, but painfully.
>>27716388Honestly I wouldn't want to pick between 3 girls with fully developed relationships because at that point 2 of them are going home heartbroken. If we were going to pick one I think now is the time anyway when there is little emotional damage. I think people are making way too big a deal out of it because the girl they didn't want was picked. I preferred Lucina and I am still 100% fine with his decision. I say it's over and we just go with it now, so we can spend time thinking about important things other than who Lucas should date or whatever. I also think break up options would probably cause another shit storm, and even giving people the notion means some people start arguing over whether or not to screw up the relationship. Besides I'm starting to like Falynn increasingly more lately. Ammo skirt waifu. Basically what I'm saying in response to "it's too early" is would you rather lead 3 girls on until they love you, knowing you can only pick one?
Rolled 18 + 2>>27716388This is exactly how I felt when I went to sleep that night and woke up to find this as the ending. It felt like a repeat of VMQ1 but will less interaction and what little interaction was shared roughly equally between the three so when the last choice was made, I was clearly confused by this.
>>27716534I have to agree as I prefer Morgan myself. As long as we can still develop their characters, I have no complaint.
Rolled 10 + 2>>27716534We kind of did back in VMQ1 and it turned out alright for the most part. However my problem was the time and place in which the decision was made which kind of irks me even now. I honestly felt we should have voted that in a new thread on a fresh weekend since that;s when the userbase is normally full but a sunday night going on monday morning was a little too much/
>>27716570Morgan's too invested in Simo to care. Maybe if we chose her exclusively we might have stood a chance, but nope.I prefer Falynn though. To be honest, I just want to ride Merc's funhouse. I don't really mind who gets with Lucas, as long as she isn't downright vile.
>>27716638But does Simo reciprocate those feelings?I think the fact Morgan is hanging around Simo so often cements his notion of treating her as a sister rather than a romantic partner. If we can just separate them from each other a bit more frequently, I think that he'll eventually see her not as a sibling, but as a romantic partner.Another problem is that Simo himself sort of disapproved having relationships in our squad as seen with Lucas and Falynn.
Rolled 11>>27716649Simo didnt mind morgan hanging on to him.And his anger and reactions imply at least some attraction.
>>27716638No love for Chiquita?
>>27716665We really need to get a clear answer from him as to how he sees her. It can be actual romantic attraction or brotherly instinct.
>>27716667It's...pretty emasculating to see a lady be three times more buff than you.
>>27716667Chiquita was my favorite, the rest of /tg/ wasn't having it.
Rolled 16 + 2>>27716638All of them aren't vile to Lucas and for the most part vic versa depriving on who has majority at the time but again as stated by previous anons, I really wished this decision was pushed to another day or at least until more development had been done/Also, I was only slightly interested in Morgon until she mention she like Simo as well and I felt that we shouldn't intervene. Faylnn was a different matter. it sort of felt like she kind of stubled onto the flags then us trying to get them.
>>27716713Now I'm starting to question whether I'm interested in Morgan as a partner or her backstory.
>>27716667It was pretty obvious that Chequita was a 1-way ticket to BadEndsville.I, personally, would have loved to ride that train just to see where it went before it crashed, but given that there isn't established policy for what happens if we BAD END it wasn't quite worth the risk. Or sacrifice I guess, not really a "risk" when you know for sure its gonna happen.
>>27716713Morgan stopped interesting me once we voted to grow her hair out, she use to be the only short hair option, then she lost all her appeal.
Rolled 3 + 2>>27716733Perhaps a little of both but since you couldn't not get the former you settled for the latter to try to compensate...probably
Rolled 17>>27716733Honeatly it was the mysterious waifu appeal. That and her cover as a boy.
Rolled 2, 10 = 12>>27716491You and MK quickly take position just around the corner."Try to keep it quiet." You say to her."Awwww, okay." MK frowns. "Cracking their skull open counts as 'silent' right?""Sure, let's go with that.">roll 2d20

>>27716756Don't worry, she can still cut it if something important to her character development occurs.
>>27716783Not terrific, but they both top Merc's rolls at least. That's a success in my book
Lucas totally needs some knife-related potential. That boar and now the throw...
>>27716783Assuming these rolls work the way I think they work, MK's doing really well for herself.
>>27716793Woah man, VMQ2 is already way too similar to my chinese cartoons as is.
Rolled 2>>27716783As the first rebel rounds the corner, MK gives him a good smack in the face with her rifle butt, fulfilling her desire to crack someone else's skull open. You manage to clothesline the second rebel, but he's not quite out yet. He drops his rifle, but struggles to pull out his pistol.>roll 1d20

Speaking of Luck, how would Merc have handled it if we rolled a third 20 for saving Strawberry Bitchtits?
>>27716951We would have destroyed canon by killing Dirk Gassenarl.
Rolled 10>>27716951Tyat would have outright killed the valkur.Major derail.
>>27716956we shook it pretty hard as it is.
>>27716987True, but we can stay somewhat true to canon through the use of massive cover-ups and one faked death.
>>27716998Precisely. I'm just wondering how Merc would handle such massive derailment. It would have been amusing to watch, to say the least.
>>27716890You stomp on the rebel's hand to keep him from reaching his pistol. The rebel grunts in pain but before he can make any noise, MK kicks him in the face, putting him out of commission.Well, that was two rebels down. Unfortunately, there was still one more left, and he didn't seem to be taking the bait."Hey! What are you doing!" Another rebel out of your line of sight yells."Norega and Pacho went to go chase down a runner!" The third shouts back."Well we're loaded up and ready to go! Get your ass moving!"The rebel grumbles and starts digging into his pocket for keys while he makes his way back to the truck.>Sprint and tackle!>Shoot him before he can reach the truck.>Other

>>27717302You didn't really have a lot of time to waste on this guy, so you do a quick and signature Sturmfuhrer headbutt to daze him, and then follow up with some pretty punishing punches. The man's face is a blood mess by the time MK catches up to you."Come on Lucas, let's get the hell out of here before they notice!"You nod and grab the dropped keys. Clambering into the truck's cab, you hit the ignition and pull the truck away. You check your rearview mirrors, but the rebels don't seem to notice anything is amiss. Yet.You pick up the truck's radio and tune it to the Demon frequency. "Falynn, Jack, I got the truck. Meet me three blocks north of the shopping center.""Got it." Jack responds.That's when you hear a huge WHUMP on the back of the truck."Uh, MK, did you hear that?" You say nervously.""Y-yeah." MK nods.>Stop and see what the hell that noise was.>Can't stop here, this is rebel country.>Other

>>27717361"Should we stop?" MK asks."Can't stop here." You shake your head. "Can you check it out?""While moving?""I guess I could try and shake them off, you frown.""Hold it right there!" You hear a very familiar voice and you feel a pistol pressed against your temple."Charlotte." You say calmly. "I'm pretty sure Tarin taught you to never let your gun contact the enemy because then they'd know where it's pointing.""Really, Lucas, you're gonna lecture me now of all times?" Charlotte pouts. "I could've just shot you without giving you a warning.""Oh, then you'd probably make Falynn really angry. You retort. "She's fine, by the way. We're going to meet up with her right now. How are you holding up, MK, Lucina?""Oh, it's been an eventful day." Lucina says as if she's commenting on the weather. "I see you've done well for yourself.""C-c-can you please take the knife off my throat? Please?" MK stammers."Oh, sorry, Mary-Kate." Lucina retracts the knife."So, uh, mind letting us in? It's kinda dangerous and frankly quite rude to leave us both hanging on outside the truck like this.""You can wait for a another minute or two, we're almost there.""I'm actually enjoying the breeze." Lucina adds in."So what have you two been up to, then?" You ask."Oh, you know, ogling at clothes, testing perfume, ogling at jewelry, all that girly stuff." Charlotte shrugs. "Damn! I should've swiped something nice before we left!""Well, too late now." You say, bringing the truck to a stop at a rather secluded vacant lot. You see Jack and Falynn have already beaten you there.(cont)
>>27717532"That's a good job, kid." Jack says as he goes up to meet you. He sees the other girls and whistles. "Friends of yours?""Some of my squadmates." You confirm."Lucky guy." Jack says offhandedly before turning back to you. "Right, well, I've been scouting the area. There are no more rebels north of this area, so I think we can set the civilians loose here. The San Salvacion Army should be arriving soon.""Okay." You nod. You also see Charlotte picking up Falynn in a big bear hug."Hey, anybody else hear that?" Charlotte frowns, Falynn still squirming in her grasp."Vehicle engines." Lucina confirms. Not one of ours.With that, all of you take cover, ready to take one whatever comes your way. You see an armored car and a pickup truck pull into the lot. However, they were rebels. You could clearly see the rest of Wraith team manning the vehicles."Holy shit, you guys are still alive!" Bragg laughs, leaping out the back of the pickup. "What the hell have you guys been doing?""Trying to not get shot." MK grumbles. "What have you guys been up to.""Funny story actually-""Quiet down, Wraiths." Simo says as he hops out of the armored car. First things first, we need to figure out what the hell's going on, what we should do, what the hell is in that truck, and who the hell this old guy here is.""Interesting team you've got here, Lucas." Jack muses. "I think I like them."You just sigh.You really hope all of your future dates weren't going to turn out like this.>And we will continue this on Sunday evening, 7-8pm PST!
