We're getting close to finale!Archive (1 and 2): http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Valkyrian%20Mercs%20QuestPastebin: http://pastebin.com/Eg7cA46sTwitter: 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.And now you've uncovered the Lost City of the Valkrur. Now your biggest question is... what do you do with it?(cont)
>>28094323"Holy shit." You breathe as you see the massive vista before you. They weren't kidding when they said this was a lost CITY. You were all essentially standing in a gigantic ship of unbelievable proportions. And you thought the Kestrel was big!"MORGAN!" You hear Simo's voice and you whip around. Apparently, with the city on the surface again, the elevator was safe to use. It seems as if the rest of the team and Whitmore's expedition had come straight down."Is she okay?" Simo asks, a bit panicked as he kneels over her."Y-yeah. She just needs a while to recover." Falynn stutters."Thank goodness..." Simo breathes a sigh of relief.>Morgan's gonna be okay.>Um, what are we gonna do now?>Watch out, there may still be Imps around.>Other
>>28094329>Um, what are we gonna do now?
Was there anymore pastebin stories last thread?
>>28094329>>Morgan's gonna be okay.then >Watch out, there may still be Imps around.
>>28094329>>Watch out, there may still be Imps around.

>>28094329>>Morgan's gonna be okay.We have to keep moving--have Sweet tend to Morgan's wounds, the rest of us need to move into the city against those Imps
>>28094329"Morgan's gonna be okay." You say, putting a reassuring hand on Simo's shoulder. "But we got bigger problems. There's still probably a ton of Imps crawling in the city, and there's at least one U-boat prowling around down there, too.""Of course." Simo sighs and stands up. "Options?""W-we can wait to see if Morgan regains consciousness." Falynn stammers. "We're in the control room right now, so we should have control of all of the city's functions.""But Morgan might not wake up." Edwin points out."Or we can just sweep through the city and wipe em all out!" MK grins."Except it's just our small squad and Whitmore's expedition. How can a few dozen of us clear an entire city? Plus, we don't know what killed all those Valkrur, and for all we know it still might be down there, somewhere." Edwin scoffs."Jeez, Edwin, can you be any more of a negative nancy?" You sigh."I'm just pointing out the realities of our courses of action." Edwin sniffs.>So what do YOU suggest we do?>We should hold the control room until reinforcements arrive.>We should clear out the city before the Imps find something they shouldn't.>Other
>>28094681>>We should hold the control room until reinforcements arrive.
>>28094681>We should hold the control room until reinforcements arrive.this will be our mother base!
>>28094681>We should hold the control room until reinforcements arrive.Have Milo look over any of the consoles, see if they say something that may tell us something about the city.
Rolled 12>>28094681>>So what do YOU suggest we do?BUT BE POLITE. He IS actually right...
>>28094681>>We should clear out the city before the Imps find something they shouldn't.
>>28094681>So what do YOU suggest we do?
>>28094681"I think we should just hold position. Sooner or later the Imps will have to come up here anyways." You suggest."Good idea." Simo nods. "The Kestrel is already incoming, but I'd really love to get the Emmerian Navy in on this as well. We could always use more guns.""Well, at least the Imps and Eruseans won't be able to get their ships in either because of that giant robot lobster." You say."Lucas," Simo shakes his head, "if the Imps could get a U-boat past that thing, what makes you think they can't figure out a way to get a fleet across?""...good point.""Guys! I think I found something!" Milo waves all of you over. In his hands he's clutching another book he had picked up from one of the many dessicated corpses in the room."What is it?" Simo asks."It seems like a personal journal, written shortly before the city fell." Milo says as he pores over the runes. "Apparently the Valkrur here found some sort of construct... or it was smuggled into the city? The writing isn't too clear on that, but whatever it was, it started...'changing' people. It started spreading through the whole city so the Valkrur had no choice but to lock down everything and sink the city to prevent whatever it was from reaching the mainland...""Milo." Simo blinks. "Are you telling me that we may have just unwittingly released a super deadly chemical or biological weapon just by stepping in this city?""W-well, after so much time, I'm sure any sort of chemical or biological agent should have long degraded by now-""Answer the question, Milo." Simo snaps."...yes. It's a possibility, but it seems that not even the Valkrur knew the true nature of what was affecting them.""Damn!" Simo turns to Falynn. "Falynn, we need Morgan up NOW.""S-she still needs more time!" Falynn cries."Actually," Sweet steps forward. "I might have something that might help, but it's risky."(cont)
>>28094932Sweet then digs into his bag and pulls out a syringe. "What's that?" You ask."Pure adrenaline. One shot to the heart is guaranteed to jumpstart you system." Sweet explains. "We usually had to resort to that before ragnaid became widely available.""It can get her up?" Simo asks."Or it can stop her heart. This is last-ditch shit right here." Sweet warns.>See if Morgan will wake up naturally. >Administer the adrenaline.>Other
>>28094947>>See if Morgan will wake up naturally.

So, right now I'm praying that Nemo will airdrop a Ruhm Mk.II for Morgan if she ever goes Valkyria Mode.
>>28095175blessed dice gods
Rolled 10Next Season:VMQ: SG-1
I just realized, if Morgan goes Valkyria and everyone sees it, the survivors will tell the story of how there's a Valkyria in the Demons. The story will spread and all of a sudden, Jager has a shit ton of requisitions for Wraith Squad.
>>28095291That's only if she goes full Valkyria. She's not a full-blood, though--hell, not even a half-blood like Alicia or that girl from VC3. She may have the touch, but I think she does not have the power.
>>28095389Personally I'd prefer it if she didn't go full sue. Skeleton key powers are okay, but I was generally happy we never bothered with Valkyria in VMQ1.
>>28095175Morgan suddenly gasps and she shoots up to her feet, her eyes as wide as dinner plates. She then starts running around the room like a child on a sugar high."HOLYSHITWHATTHEFUCKDIDYOUINJECTMEWITH!" She cries as she hops around the room as if the floor were made of lava."Just a bit of adrenaline. It'll cool down in a few seconds." Sweet laughs. "Guess it worked this time.""THISTIME!?" Morgan sputters."Morgan. Morgan! Calm down!" You say.Simo then comes up and grabs Morgan from behind to keep her from running around."If you keep doing that you're going to hurt yourself." He says."Th-th-th-thankss." Morgan nods. She seems to have calmed down somewhat, but she's still jittery and her eye movements erratic."Morgan," You say, standing in front of her to focus her attention on you, "we need you to access the city's systems. Can you do that for us?""Y-yeah. I can do that." Morgan nods rapidly and she starts hitting runes on the console at lightning speed."Citywide power generation at 2%. Only 10% of automated defenses operational. Hull breaches and leaks in multiple sectors. Three out of five wards structurally compromised. Unknown object detected in central sector. Multiple life signs detected." Morgan says rapidly as her eyes flit across the runes appearing on the console."Wait... Morgan, you can read that stuff on your own, now?" You blink."I guess I can." Morgan nods rapidly. "Oh, oh, I think I found something useful. 'Recall Leviathan.' Should i press that? Should I? Should I?""I assume the Leviathan is that giant robot lobster thing?" You asks."Yeppers.""If we can recall it, then we can get the Emmerian Navy in here." Simo nods. "Do it.""Done." Morgan says as she slaps another rune. "Uhohuhohuhoh.""What's going on?" You ask."Multiple contacts approaching from the south. Ships, most likely, though nothing bigger than destroyer size. What do we do?">You said this city has automated defenses?>Wait for backup.>Other
>>28095485>>You said this city has automated defenses?
>>28095485>>You said this city has automated defenses?by the way, did we enact Lockdown yet?
Rolled 8>>28095485>>You said this city has automated defenses?
Wait...If it's a Marker that killed the Valkyrian race, and one was in the mine Arthur Asimov was in...Who the hell built them?
>>28095606The one's who built the gate, of course
>>28095606The Forerunners, as a way to keep ensure the Precursor's empire was kept in check long after their demise, obviously.
>>28095673More along the lines of to destroy the Precursors, but the Forerunners were destroyed by it themselves.
>>28095624You know.Valkyrian Chronicles having stargates would fit the setting pretty well.
>>28095485"Morgan, you said the city has automated defenses, right?""Yeah, in case of external attack." Morgan nods rapidly. "Most if it out of commission thought, because you know, under the ocean for hundreds of years.""Can't hurt to fire them up now, right?" "Okay!" Morgan hits another rune.You then all move to the southern observation window, where you can see what look like three Erusean destroyers and a small flotilla of transports steaming their way towards the city. Suddenly, there's a flash of light and a blue beam of energy lances out and shears one of the transports in half. There are a few more flashes of lights and more blue beams fire, sinking transport boats and cutting up one of the destroyers. The remaining destroyers immediately begin firing back with their cannons."That's not going to hold them long." Morgan says. "There's only four cannons guarding the south side... well, three now.""We don't have to hold them off forever, just until reinforcements get here.""Simo, I've been thinking..." Falynn steps forward. "Do... do you really think we should keep this city?""What are you talking about?" Simo blinks."I mean, you've studied history already, right? Every time somebody's messed with Valkrur technology... bad stuff happens. Should we really be keeping this city?""And let somebody else take it?" Simo shakes his head. "With this, we can guarantee Gallia's safety forever.">Falynn has a point.>Simo has a point.>Other
>>28095751>>Falynn has a point.We don't even know how this stuff works or how to fix it.
>>28095751>Falynn has a point.Let it burn.Also, Marker.
>>28095751>Falynn has a point.
>>28095751>>Simo has a point.This is the lost city of Atlantis. And if we go the SG route, this will also have a gate in it.
>>28095751>>Falynn has a point.It needs to drown.
>>28095773Also mention that he's making Morgan and her future children tools just to operate the damn thing.
>>28095751>Simo has a point.
Rolled 10>>28095751>>Falynn has a point.And besides, theres that pathogen to consider. It needs to die.However we CAN recover the books and what artifacts we can.
>>28095751>Simo has a point.and he is in charge of are unit
>>28095751>Falynn has a point.And Gallia is totally trustworthy enough to be the custodian of this sort of power forever.NOT.
>>28095751>>Falynn has a point.
>>28095795It's not like they're the only Valkyrians, a Gallian wide testing regime would reveal a few dozen if you assume it has 4 million people rather than the 400 thousand the setting says it has which is a bit silly.
>>28095751>>Simo has a point.We have so much to learn from the Foreru--I mean, Valknyr! The amount of technology this city holds could accelerate research projects by years! Reclaimer, take your seat upon the throne!
>>28095751>>Falynn has a point.Such power isn't meant to be mucked with.
>>28095851Doesn't that mean you are essentially sifting through the population to round up people of Valkyrian descent to operate the things?
>>28095751"Falynn has a point." You say. "I don't think any one nation should be allowed to have this much power. And we still haven't figured out what killed the Valkrur in the first place.""You too, Lucas?" Simo sighs.>roll 1d20
>>28095872To ask them to, sure.You don't need to force them to do anything.
>>28095872The Imperium could manage it on a massive scale; what's to stop us from instituting Black Ships of our own?
>>28095926But now they know who can be Valkyrian soldiers if they need to "draft" some soldiers.
Rolled 12>>28095926It begins a system that allows for extra tyranny, if only for those few citizens.
>>28095950Ethics of such conscription taken out of the equation, this is a prime chance at making leaps and bounds unseen in anything. There is so much potential good to be gained! To see it all cast aside like a candy bar wrapper would be losing such a massive opportunity!!
>>28095926Like that's going to stop people from doing just that.
Rolled 1>>28096003You're starting to sound like movie villain #3 there, buddy.
So how do we deal with those of Valkyrian descent?Should Morgan retire and set up an institution on Sturmfuhrer academy to shelter Valkyrians who have been treated like lab rats and act like a big sister to them, as well as give them a safe place?
>>28096050Or we just let them live out their lives in peace.
>>28095950They can get that information anytime they want it by doing the same thing, and with Valkyrian super weapons conventional warfare between superpowers will be irrelevant, hell we could have Morgan destroy the onboard weapons and use the base for other avenues of technology and research.>>28096009What's to stop people using the Valkyrian descendents now? The games clearly showed they could find people of Valkyrian decent, and that was 20 years ago.
I shudder to think of a world where Sturmfuhrer academy has Morgan as an instructor for a "Valkyrian Squad".
>>28096080Because Gallia is totally going to share, as opposed to keeping all those superweapons for themselves.And only the imps were shown to do that, and even then we don't know how reliable what kind of methods they instituted, nor did it seem that they saw them- for whatever reason, as weapons of some sort. Meanwhile this would create a gold rush so they could weaponize the shit out of Valk technology.
Rolled 17>>28096106The hot teacher?
>>28096141You mean the hot teacher with the hot students.
>>28095907"Simo, think about like this." You say, moving to face him directly, so that you don't have to say what you'll be saying next too loudly for the others to hear. "If we do take this thing back to Gallia, what do you think would happen? The military would force Morgan to stay here to operate all the systems. She'd essentially be a prisoner, AGAIN. Do you really want that?""We can always find someone else-""You think Morgan would want that? You think she'd let somebody else suffer in her place?""...No." Simo sighs. "Then you know what we have to do." You say."Morgan." Simo slowly turns around. "Is there a way to destroy the city from here?"Everybody blinks at these words, though some nod in approval while others shake their heads in disagreement. "Y-yes." Morgan nods. "We can permanently sink the city by separating each of the individual wards, since they rely on the central core section for flotation. Then we overload the ragnite reactor and self destruct the central core section.""So, basically, that's a yes.""Yeah." Morgan sighs."Then do it." Simo says. "We're gonna catch a lot of flak for this, but it's probably for the best."Morgan nods solemnly and hits a few keys. The console then starts to display new characters.WARNING: SELF DESTRUCT SEQUENCE INITITATED. PURGING ALL OUTER SECTORS.Suddenly, one of the outer sections of the city shudders as explosive bolts are set off, and the whole section rapidly begins to sink under the waves."The rest will go off in sequence." Morgan says. It'll take a few minutes for that to happen, and another few minutes for the reactor to go critical.""Hey, um, silly question here." MK raises her hand. "But how are we going to get off this city, then?"(cont)
>>28096173"I got the answer." Runaround grins as he pulls a device out of his pack. "Freaking Nemo forced me to bring some Skyhooks along just in case.""Right, Barfbag's in the air right now so we can start to extract.""Um, guys." Sparky speaks up. "There's something going on down below."You all move to the observation window, where you see that were the detached section once was, the Imp U-boat was floating in its place, and you see cannons on its spine pointing right up towards you..."TAKE COVER!" Simo yells as the U-boat's cannons make whumping noises as they fire. You duck just in time to see giant grappling harpoons punch their way through walls. You raise your head and you can see that the harpoons have strung up lines that both Imp soldiers and Artificial Valkyria were using to climb up the tower towards you. MG fire from the top of the U-boat begins to lance up in an effort to provide cover fire for them.>Get Whitmore and his team to evacuate to the roof and extract with the Skyhook.>Tell Whitmore and his team to get ready to defend the area. You need every man you can get.>Other

>>28096187>>Get Whitmore and his team to evacuate to the roof and extract with the Skyhook.
>>28096187>Get Whitmore and his team to evacuate to the roof and extract with the Skyhook.
>>28096138You don't need to share, others will find their way to it eventually.The rush to weaponize nuclear power pretty much destroyed warfare in our reality and the rivalry between the USSR and the USA led to massive technological advances across the board.Plus just because the Imperials were using Valkyrian technology primarily for warfare doesn't mean Gallia would do the same.
>>28096187>OtherGet all the explosives that Vinny managed to smuggle in here (you all know he's hiding them) and gather anything we can use to prep some booby traps for the invading Imps
>>28096187"Whitmore, you and your people should get out of here!" You say, motioning for them to get to the elevator as quickly as possible. "Runaround will show you how to use the Skyhook.""Oh, I'm sure we can manage." Whitmore chuckles. "I can safely say this wasn't the most dire situation we've been in!""For what it's worth, I'm sorry that we have to destroy the city you've been searching for so long." You say apologetically."Oh, don't worry!" Whitmore laughs. "At the very least we know that it the city does in fact exist, and as they say, the journey is always more fulfilling than the destination!"With that, Whitmore and his crew wave their goodbyes as the elevator closes. You then turn to confront the situation at hand."How much longer, Morgan?" Simo asks."Six minutes." Morgan says."And when are the Imps going to reach us?""Thirty seconds." Sparky says."Anybody got any good ideas?" Simo asks."I've got several stupid ones." Charlotte says."Me too." Sparky nods."Or we could go with a logical plan." Edwin sighs.>Cover Falynn as she tries to cut the boarding lines.>Use the Imps' lines against them by ziplining down to the U-boat and taking the fight straight to them.>Try to engage the U-boat from range.

>>28096412"Edwin, what should we do?" You ask."We're fighting a defensive battle, so we use defensive tactics." Edwin sighs. Let them climb up a bit more until they're in effective range and start picking them off. Meanwhile, me and Sparky will attempt to hit the U-boat with our lances. Hopefully we'll damage or spook it.""But I'm pretty sure the U-boat is way outside your lances' effective range.""Hence why I said 'hopefully.'"You frown."Hey ,it's not a foolproof plan, but it's the most sensible." Edwin shrugs. "Then once time winds down we fall back, let the Imps take the control room as it explodes. Simple.">Go with Edwin's plan.>Actually the ziplining thing sounded pretty cool.>Other

>>28096943Yeah, it needs to be patched ASAP.That said, I found myself very impressed by the combat AI, which is a shame because it only got a chance to shine in a 8-hour campaign.Also, I heard they might be bringing back Titan Mode in Naval Strike, which is pretty much the only reason I bought the game.

However, as the regular soldiers still try to climb, the MGs on the U-boat spit fire up at you.

At this point there were no more regular troops climbing up, and it was almost exclusively V3s.Unfortunately, Edwin and Sparky miss their shots again, their lances splashing uselessly into the water."Guys!" Barfbag's voice squawks. "I'm getting low on fuel! You guys either get out now or I have to turn around!""Morgan, how much more time?" You ask. "Four out of five sections detached!

Simo yells, waving everybody to the elevator.As Falynn is busy setting charges on the central console, you take a second to look back and you eyes widen in horror as you see a massive, armored gauntlet grasp the edge of the window. Evidently, one of the V4s had managed to reach the top, and Falynn was right in its line of fire. You raise your MG, but there's not guarantee that it could stop a V4 in time.

>>28097731You give the V4 another healthy kick in the face and this time it goes down for good, losing its grip on your leg and toppling off the edge. Then you feel somebody pulling you back up to your feet."Come on!" Falynn yells, handing you your MG. "We've only got thirty seconds!"The elevator ride up to the roof seems to take forever, but you manage to reach the top without incident despite the entire structure being jolted by the explosion as the control room detonates. You see the rest of the squad have already deployed the Skyhook and have hooked themselves on to it. "Come on! Hurry!" Simo yells.You first help Falynn hook herself up to the line before quickly hooking yourself."Everybody hold on tight, because this is the part where it REALLY sucks!" Runaround warns.Sure enough, you see Barfbag's Gullwing swoop in on an approach, smartly using the tower to shield it from the U-boat's MG fire. The Gullwing comes down low and hooks the Skyhook's balloon, yanking you and the entire squad in the air. Gullwing then guns the engines, putting distance between himself and the tower as you are slowly winched in one by one. You then see a bright flash of light as the tower explodes and crumbles to pieces, and you can't say that you felt bad when you saw the debris topple on top the U-boat, crushing it.Well, it was over, you guess."Ah, I see you've made it out alive!" Whitmore says happily. "Yeah." You laugh nervously."Alright guys, we are getting the hell out of here and- SHIT!" Runaround yells as you see two yellow flashes streak past the plane."This is Yellow Squadron of the Erusean Air Force. Unidentified plane, you are ordered to land immediately.""Damn it!" Simo scowls. "Barfbag, how far out is the Kestrel?""She already sent fighters. They should be here in under a minute.""Unidentified aircraft, land IMMEDIATELY!"

>>28097974"Barfbag, do that annoying glove rubbing thing you always do. When you don't want to talk.""What are you talking abou-""BARFBAG!""Okay, okay!" Barfbag starts rubbing his glove against the mic. "I'M SORRY. I'M HAVING RADIO PROBLEMS. I CAN'T HEAR YOU VERY WELL."One of the Erusean planes then accelerates so that it's right next to the Gullwing's cockpit. You then see the Erusean pilot pointing down in an effort to tell Barfbag to land. Barfbag just shrugs as if he can't understand. Finally, the the Erusean fighter lets off a burst of cannon fire across the Gullwing's nose."Well shit, man, I can't argue against that." Barfbag concedes."You did your best." You sigh.However, suddenly, both planes break off and head in the opposite direction and you briefly wonder why until you see Gallian and Emmerian fighters approaching."OH MY GOD WE'RE SAVED!" Barfbag exclaims."Um, I'm not so sure." Morgan points out the back of the Gullwing.You all turn and see that there's an Erusean fleet coming up right behind you. A BIG one.And in front of you you can see an almost equally large Emmerian fleet approaching from the North."Did we just get caught in the middle of one of the largest naval battles of all time?" MK blinks."Probably." Edwin sighs.And then, an even greater sight, you can see the Kestrel in the sky above. Barfbag quickly makes preparations to land."So what's gonna happen?" You ask Simo."Well, if anything, we're just probably gonna sit back and watch." Simo shrugs. "This is the Navy and Air Force's show now."Suddenly, one of the Erusean ships explodes in a massive fireball."See? What did I tell you?""Um, I don't think that was from the Emmerians..."Falynn bites her lip."Suddenly, an Emmerian cruiser is sliced in half."Oh no..."(cont)
>>28098223Looks like Morgan's gonna have her hand's full...
>>28098223We recalled the Leviathan.OH SHIT WE RECALLED THE LEVIATHAN.WE RECALLED THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON IN THE WORLD SO IT COULD MURDERIZE EVERYONE.
>>28098223Suddenly, you see a massive, blue shape surface in between both fleets. It was the Leviathan."Morgan! I thought we recalled that thing!" You yell."I did!" Morgan yells back. "That can only mean.. oh no..."She grabs her binoculars and looks at the Leviathan's surface. "Damnit!""What?" "There's an Artificial Valkyria on top controlling it!"At this point, both the Emmerian and Erusean fleets begin firing at the Leviathan, but the thing is very fast and agile for its huge size, an it easily avoids the shells of the biggest guns while the smaller shells bounce harmlessly off its armored frame."We have to stop it!" Morgan says. "Or its going to annihilate everything!""Well, what's your idea?" You ask.Morgan goes to grab a parachute.>Oh heck no.>Grab a chute. >Other
>>28098271well if we didn't recall it, it would have murderized both fleets before they got near atlantis...
>>28098271We should probably radio our friends to pull back, huh?

>>28098291>>Grab a chute.

Now that you think about it, Morgan really seems to be becoming good MC material.
>>28098336only reason its rampaging around and not protecting the wreckage of Atlantis on the seabed is because of the dude plugged into its head...
>>28098291>SnipeIt's honestly our best chance, there's no way we're going to be able to land on that thing.There's also the fact that a machine that can chuck supercarriers like toys cab crush us with very little effort.

Rolled 9>>28098291>Grab a chute.
>>28098291>OtherSnipe.>>28098341Then how the fuck do you think we're going to land on it?
You know, I'm just imagining Morgan atop of the Leviathan and making a huge speech to the enemy, trying to convince them to leave or die.
It's too fast, you say? Well then...>>28098291>Other>You are LARA WILLIAMS
>>28098291>Sniper>>28098414Because a plane armed with 30mm guns AT BEST is totally going to have a chance against a kilometer long battle lobster.
>>28098429RAGNITE, SON.Smart lances, dog.
>>28098429And clearly the snipers are also going to be aiming to headshot said kilometer-long battle monster as well, right?

>>28098442they're gonna shoot the dude riding it, not the lobster itself you fool

>>28098463>What is sarcasm
>>28098291"Wait, can't you try to snipe him?" You ask"It's gonna be tough." Morgan frowns. "The Leviathan's moving, the plane is moving, there's all sorts of wind out there...""Can you do it?""Maybe?">roll 2d20

>>28098494Morgan tries to take the shot, but like she had said before, there were just too many external factors, and her bullets ping uselessly off the armored hull of the Leviathan.However, what she was successful in was drawing the attention of the Artificial Valkyria controlling it. It pauses momentarily to glare at you before pointing at the Gullwing.And then the Leviathan raises a massive scorpion tail from its rear, though instead of stinger, it's tipped with a massive energy lance."Barfbag, EVADE EVADE!" You yell.But it's too late. The lance spits sapphire flames, which incinerates the plane's right wing, sending the craft into a spin."If you guys are gonna bail out, now is probably a good time!" Barfbag yells."Can you control the descent? Can you land it somewhat safely?" Simo asks."Why?" Barfbag blinks."Because it's my turn to have a stupid idea.">Bail out!>Stay on the plane and hope Barfbag can land it on the Leviathan.>Other

>>28098656Against all odds, Barfbag manages to turn the plane and lock in a heading straight at the Artificial Valkyria. However, right when it looks like you're about to ram into him, the plane stops.Literally just stops.You and Barfbag look out the windshield and see that the Artificial Valkyria, a type that you've never seen before, has literally stopped the plane.WITH HIS HAND.The Artificial Valkyria tilts its head as if it was amused be the effort, and then effortlessly uses its one arm to pick up the plane by the nose, holding it vertical in the air before tossing it to the rear of the Leviathan like a broken toy.By the time the wrecked Gullwing finally comes to a stop, you groan and manage to ask, "Everybody okay?"The squad is more or less fine, with some bruises and scratches. Unfortunately, it looks as if Edwin had taken a nasty blow the head. However, he was still alive, if only barely."Will he make it?" You ask Falynn."Yeah." She nods."Is he going to wake up anytime soon?"She shakes her head."COME NOW, GALLIANS." You hear a voice boom. "IS THAT THE BEST YOU CAN DO?"Morgan shivers. "That's Dragovich. I recognize that voice anywhere.""So, what's the plan?" You ask."Hopefully I can seize control of the Leviathan from him." She says. "If we can't, well, we'll have to fight him."Wonderful.(cont)
>>28098881Suddenly, you hear a huge SPLASH and you all look over to the side to see Trombe floating in the water, trailing a parachute."I thought you could use this." Nemo says over the radio."Nice! Sometimes I love you, girl!" Runaround grins and dives into the water.Morgan then takes a deep breath and jumps out of the wreckage of the Gullwing, making direct contact with the Leviathan.Suddenly, the entire construct comes to a screeching halt, sending everybody off their feet and causing Dragovich to lose his balance temporarily."Do you have control?" You asks."No." Morgan shakes her head. "We both seem to have equal system access. The best I can do is keep it in standby.Finally, with the Leviathan stopped, even for a moment, the Emmerian and Erusian battleships begin landing hits on the Leviathan, gouging huge chunks and knocking dents into its armor. You see Gallian, Emmerian, and even Erusian aircraft flying in formation to make attack runs against it."Well, we can't have interruptions now, can we?" Dragovich rasps and he snaps his fingers. Blue flames then shoot out from around the Leviathan, forming a semi-visible dome of energy around which seems to repel everything the two fleets are throwing at it."Come at me then, if you wish!" Dragovich cackles. "One or a hundred, I do not care!"The Trombe then rolls up to your position. You cart both the unconscious Edwin and the wounded Barfbag into its passenger compartment. "So, what's the plan?" Charlotte asks.>We'll take him down together!>Leave this to me.>Other

>>28099078...This will hurt.Badly.
>>28099078We might need to burn a reroll or three for this.
>>28099078Both you and Dragovich fire at the same time. You bullets riddle across his armor, and you see pieces of getting breached and penetrated. Rifle fire from your squad also rains down on him, though its only moderately effective. Then Dragovich opens up with his own salvo, ports in his wrists opening up to reveal miniature energy guns, spattering your armor with blue fire. The cloth parts of your armor immediately begin to burn and smolder. Your ablative plates hold since this is what it was designed to protect against, but you can feel your armor heating up. Then one luck shot strikes you square i the helmet. Letting out a help, you tear your helmet off and toss the flaming piece of headgear away. The cool ocean breeze is a nice contrast to the blast furnace the inside of your suit is turning into.Dragovich then sees a lance shot headed towards him and he easily somersaults out of the way."Lucas, back off a bit so I can put in some fire on him." Runaround says.>No, he might go for the rest of the squad if I do!>Okay, waste him, Runaround!>Other

Rolled 3, 14, 10 = 27>>28099295Dragovich is forced back a bit as cannon shells slam into his chest. Armor cracks and groans under he strain, but his chestplate holds. The disposable lances, though, streak in. Dragovich dodges one, literally slaps the second out of the air, but suffers direct hits on the last two. And he's engulfed in the blast.Everybody pauses to see if Dragovich was down for good, until you see a blue flash as Dragovich comes sprinting out of the smoke. You can see parts of his are now ruined, with the outer layers have been completely shorn away down to the undersuit, but Artificial Valkrur were built tough, and Dragovich was no exception.He then closes the distance between himself and the Trombe, literally ignoring everything else around him.>roll 1d20
>>28099387>>28099377Well crud, I suppose this is where Dragovich's absurd mobility advantage comes in.
>>28099387Runaround yelps and tries to gun the Trombe in reverse, but Dragovich is already in and gives the vehicle a mighty punch, denting the front armor plate and sending the Trombe skidding over the side the Leviathan and tumbling into the water. Even though the Trombe was amphibious, it would take Runaround time to get it back into position.Dragovich then turns to face your squad and sprints toward Lucina, who prepares to for close combat. You and everybody else raise your weapons, but Dragovich is smart, putting Lucina in between himself and the rest of the squad, making supporting fire difficult. However, being all the way in front, you probably have the best angle on him.>Fire! You need to trip him up!>Don't fire. You might hit Lucina. Plus she can handle herself.>Other

You can imagine Dragovich scowling as he leaps away to take cover behind the Gullwing wreck, and then makes eye contact with you again.

You're sure that if you weren't armored as you were, your body would have been totally pulverized.However, that isn't much comfort when Dragovich brings down an armored fist on your unarmored face, and suddenly your vision explodes into stars.

Dragovich's grip on your throat loosens and your vision clears to see Falynn standing over, apparently having bashed Dragovich in the face with the edge of her combat shield."GET AWAY FROM HIM, YOU BASTARD!" Falynn shrieks as she hurls a grenade at Dragovich, engulfing him in smoke and fire."C-come on, Lucas! Get up!" Falynn says, holding her shield up with one arm while trying to drag you away with her other. And then you see a pair of blue eyes light up in the smoke.>Get up to your feet.>Fire fire fire!>Other

>>28100048This time, Dragovich stops short of tackling you and instead gives a big, meaty punch to your chest, sending you toppling back to the ground. He then follows up with another hard punch directed at Falynn, putting a huge dent in her shield and sending her sliding across the deck."Such a troublesome opponent." Dragovich scowls. You can hear sporadic rifle fire as your squadmates try to assist, but Dragovich ignores them. "Any last words?">roll 1d20

>>28100113"Yeah, you should keep an eye on your back." You grin."What?"And that's when Lucina comes in, leaping on Dragovich back and jamming her knife into the side of his throat. Dragovich roars in pain, grabs Lucina, and tosses her off his back."ENOUGH!" He roars as he raises his hand. In an instant, the shield protecting the Leviathan collapses into a tiny ball that rests in his palm. He then closes his hand into a fist, crushing the ball of energy and sending a massive shockwave rippling out, sending you and the rest of the Wraiths flying."I AM A VALKYRIA! I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED BY PESTS LIKE YOU!" Dragovich roars. Suddenly, Dragovich is peppered by explosions, and you see a Bison roaring in on a strafing run, nose mounted cannons and machine guns bracketing Dragovich in fire as it flies past."Dragovich, do you remember me?" A voice cackles madly over the radio."Reznov?!" Both you and Dragovich yell in surprise."Today, I shall avenge my men, and the poor souls of Vorkuta!" Reznov yells as his Bison circles around for another attack run."Insufferable old man!" Dragovich mutters as runs over to one of the Leviathan's smaller lance batteries, yanks it free from its mount, and begins to aim it at Reznov's plane.>Let Reznov draw Dragovich's fire so that you can get into a good firing position.>Keep Dragovich from getting a bead on Reznov.>Other

>>28100422Dragovich fires, but the shot is wild and misses, though it shears off the bridge tower of an unlucky Erusean ship. Reznov then lines up a shot in his attack Bison and lets loose with everything he has, pulling away just short of ramming the plane straight into Dragovich, though you were pretty sure he was tempted in doing so.However, even then, Dragovich is still not dead, though he looks rather close to it. His armor and body ruined, the former Imperial crawls out of the blast crater, glaring at all of you in defiance."Impossible..." He croaks."Very possible." Morgan says, stepping forward. "I guess your system access was tied to the armor, wasn't it?"Dragovich says nothing."Because now I can do THIS." Morgan snaps her fingers, and the Leviathan's lance tail hovers directly over Dragovich. "Say hi to Steiner and Kravchenko in Hell for me."The lance fires in a flash of blinding blue light, incinerating Dragovich and coring a massive hole through the Leviathan. The entire construct shudders as secondary explosions begin to ripple across it."Um, I think now is a good time to get of this thing." Morgan says.With that, everybody dashes for the Trombe as the Leviathan slowly begins to sink under the waves, it's red optics flickering and dying as it slides beneath the waves."Good riddance." Runaround spits as he guns Trombe's engine."Wow, good job everyone!" You breath a sigh of relief. Everybody begins cheering."It's not over yet." Simo frowns.Oh yeah, there was still the fact that the Emmerian and Erusean navies were still facing each other down.>Ah, just let them fight.

Please, enough blood has been shed today. Just... go home. It's not worth fighting over scraps lying on the ocean floor."The minutes pass by excruciatingly slow, but finally, the Erusean fleet turns around, and the Emmerian fleet eventually follows suit. There would be no more battles today."Did... did we just win a war?" You blink."That's for the politicians to decide." Simo shrugs. "But seriously, good job Lucas.""Thanks.""Um, hey, Simo, remember that thing I wanted to talk to you about?" Morgan says, shifting around nervously."Yeah?""Well..." Morgan then stands on her toes and kisses Simo full on the mouth. Everybody simply goes BALLISTIC, cheering on the new couple, while in the back, Falynn takes the chance to sneak in a kiss of her own on you.Nobody seems to hear the queries of the Emmerian rescue boat that's pulled up alongside the Trombe."What do you think is going on in there?"

>>28100812EPILOGUEThe war between San Salvacion and Erusea continued for another few months, but it was clear that Erusea had lost all steam. With Dragovich's death, Erusea had lost its main source of Imperial backing, and with the revelation that Dragovich had just been using Erusea as a tool to achieve his own ends, many Erusean leaders were looking or a quick way to save face.As a result, representatives from San Salvacion and Erusea came together and agreed to a truce. The border was reset at its original pre-war location, and San Salvacion waived reparations in return for striking the Erusean sponsored amendment in their constitution prohibiting Emmerian garrisons in San Salvacion. However, tensions were still high, and Artemis continues hold continuous, though much diminished presence there. The Demons had largely pulled out, opting to return to Gallia.
>>28100896Mk got a little but Char got none due to fear of triggering her flag since we accidently got Faylnn.Btw wasn't there going to be another pastebin story?
>>28100905Will we get more Edwin/Sparky screentime? Because honestly that felt like it was cut short mid-development.
>>28100911Uh...idk about Falynn/Charlotte slash. At least, me in particular.
>>28100905JASON HUDSON, ALEX MASON, FRANK WOODS, and CHEQUITAThe exploits of Hudson and his team are still currently highly classified. Not much is known about their current activities, though it can be safely assumed that they're still operating behind enemy lines in Erusea somewhere. After all, just because the official war ended doesn't mean the shadow war did.
>>28100937No chequita ambushing lucas for fluffy? awww
>>28100937JACK RYANWhile catching some flak over losing the Lost City and ultimately making all of the money invested into the Cartographer Project a wasted investment, Jack Ryan ultimately managed to escape any serious punishment by informing his superiors that he had records of certain "missions" performed by Artemis personnel under Emmerian Intelligence's payroll. In fact, Jack did so well that he was promoted from Bureau Chief to Deputy Director at EI's main headquarters. He's become a large proponent in increasing intelligence ties with Gallia, often trading information with GSS over certain sensitive matters.
>>28100956That's behind the lewd paywall.
>>28100916We also skipped every chance to see Aunt 'liz.I miss the Meido Spy.
>>28100956That's for the side stories or fan fiction. No more lewd from other girls besides Fayln...which is disspaointing
>>28100962JOSE ARGUELLOWith his beloved village of Dorado basically wiped off the map, Arguello was in a bit of bind of where to go from there. Fortunately for him, when the Demons pulled out of San Salvacion, they left the Bastion in his care, and also left behind much of their construction equipment and materials. Arguello now directs the management of the Bastion as well as the reconstruction of Dorado. He's also picked up a nameless war orphan who he seems to be raising as a protege.
>>28100975Well, at least Edwin got his Sparky lewds...
>>28100985He hasn't gotten shit but shit.
>>28100999So he's Korean?
>>28100981VIKTOR REZNOVWith his revenge complete, Viktor seemed to be at a loss at what to do. Fortunately, he found new purpose when Morgan suggested he go find other past victims of Vorkuta and give them the closure they needed. With that, Reznov bid farewell to both the Demons and Emmerian Intelligence, disappearing behind the Empire's iron curtain.
>>28100999Much like the ther characters.
>>28101005RAUL MENENDEZAfter the war, Menendez briefly considered staying behind in his home country. However, having decided that there were too many reminders of Josefina in that land, Menendez opted to return with the Demons to Gallia, where he continues to train future recruits in the ways of asymmetrical warfare.
>>28101024WHITMORE AND CO.After a very, very, VERY long debriefing session by Emmerian Intelligence, Whitmore and his expedition team were finally released, where they immediately went to work planning out their next expedition. The current rumors are that Whitmore is planning to lead his team to the North Pole for reasons unknown. However, had has opened up a lucrative security contract with the Demons to protect both his team and his business interests.
>>28101037YELLOW SQUADRONIn the closing months of the war, the relatively new Yellow Squadron quickly made a name for itself as a squadron to be feared. Led by the enigmatic Yellow 13, they managed to check the advance of almost every Emmerian air push into Erusean territory. It's been noted in many a newspaper of how Yellow 13 and Yellow 12 would constantly duel with the famous Ribbon Fighter, though so far all of their encounters have ended in stalemates. With peace reigning, who knows if these pilots will ever face each other in the skies again.
>>28101075WHITE FANGDespite his reckless and borderline suicidal antics, White Fang not only managed to survive the war, but he came out as one of the highest scoring aces, second only to Ribbons and few others. There's also a lot of rumors that he and RIbbons are in a relationship. While he boasts that they are an item, Ribbons has so far stayed quiet about the matter.
>>28101091TOMBSTONEAfter having been assisted by Ribbons in a skirmish with Yellow Squadron, the infamous Tombstone has not been seen in the air for quite some time. Rumors fly that he was critically or even mortally wounded in that battle, or that he's lying low to evade war crimes charges. Whatever the reason, Tombstone has essentially become nothing more than a ghost.
Rolled 11>>28101115I feel kinda sad for-no. Hah, serves him right.
Ah yeah. Yet another exciting conclusion to Valkryia Mercenaries.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1zxij1pLpM
>>28101115LARA WILLIAMSLara enjoyed success as one of the deadliest aces in the war, coming out with a total kill count of 75 various aircraft, with over thirty having been aces as well. However, having inherited her father's modesty, she never made a big deal about it and never made her identity public, which only increased the mystique of her Ribbons personality. Even though she isn't even a native of Emmeria and San Salvacion, her exploits have made her something of a living legend among the general populace of both countries. She returned to Gallia with the rest of the Demons, and it's rumored that she's in a relationship with one of the aces she had encountered in battle. However, despite numerous queries, she remains tight lipped about the matter. Not even her own brother Lucas knows the whole story.
>>28101142BRAGGBragg was a simple soul at heart, and when he returned to Gallia, he did what he always did best: lazing around and drinking copious amounts of alcohol. Simo has been trying to get him to pursue healthier hobbies, with limited success. He's currently petitioning to have a fraternity system set up at Sturmfuhrer Academy, though pretty much EVERYBODY knows how bad of an idea that would be.
>>28101167Haha, poor Bragg.
>>28101167MARY-KATE CAULDERAfter returning to Gallia, MK took a bit of leave to visit her family in Randgriz. Funnily enough, she's become something of a local hero in her hometown thanks to her father boasting about all her exploits overseas (even though 90% of those stories had been made up), and she now has to deal with a fanclub as well as "MK wannabes". She still hasn't quite realized the irony of her situation.
>>28101215Darling MK never will.
>>28101215shes totally in lesbiens with Char
>>28101215JOHN "RUNAROUND" GREGORRunaround returned to Gallia with a newfound love for armored vehicles. When not serving in combat, he's become a test driver for everything from race cars to main battle tanks. He's rather infamous for pushing his vehicles to their limits, much to the annoyance of Nemo, who is usually responsible for fixing his messes.
>>28101215Aww man, no yuri end for MK then I guess.
>>28101235Side sessions, yo.Everyone deserves love.
>>28101231Is it just me or was anyone else really hoping that Nemo and Runaround would end up together?
>>28101260I did.Nemo abusing Runaround was adorable.
>>28101260It's not you.
>>28101260Just wait until the Nemo exposition!Hopefully. Maybe.
>>28101231MARISA "SPARKY" NICOLAUUpon returning to Gallia, Sparky decided to go pay a long overdue visit to her parents, who unfortunately weren't amused when they realized their plan to send Sparky to a military school to learn some manners backfired, considering Sparky wanted to stay with the Demons than continue the business. Another sticking point was their discussions about what to do about Edwin, considering his Imperial heritage. While Sparky reportedly left on good terms with her parents, the Nicolau manner had to undergo sudden surprise renovations shortly after her departure...
>>28101280Why am I not surprised?
>>28101280EDWIN HOHENZOLLERNAfter the war, Edwin took a brief leave of absence to return to his homeland of Belka. Nobody is sure what transpired while he was there, but when he returned, Edwin was carrying a small, intricately carved box with him, loudly declaring that he'd seriously hate it if somebody were to steal it and open it to see what was inside...
>>28101312Holy shit, Edwin finally got a clue!
>>28101312Ahahaha! You are smart after all.
>>28101315>>28101320>>28101321Charlotte got there first,
>>28101312Edwin you tsundere.Now I really want to know what was originally inside the box...
>>28101312>dick in a box
>>28101312WHY.WHY IS THERE NOT MORE MERC?
>>28101312SIMO PETROVICHSimo returned to Gallia and stayed on as the team leader for Wraith Team. However, word of his relationship with Morgan finally leaked out, and now he gets endless queries about how he feels about incest, despite how he constantly points out that he and Morgan aren't actually related by blood. Fortunately, Alek and Elsa don't seem to mind, and are in fact rather amused by it, always teasing him about being a shameless "siscon".
>>28101342>now he gets endless queries about how he feels about incest>always teasing him about being a shameless "siscon"My fucking sides
>>28101342I want Elsa as a mother. I think.
>>28101342MORGAN HATHCOCKMorgan returned to Gallia a changed girl. With burdens of her past lifted, she finally became much more outgoing and social rather than being the meek little wallflower she was before. However, not everybody got the memo and there are STILL quite a number of classmates who still think Morgan is a very feminine looking man, much to her dismay. She's planning on spending her leave period going on a traditional Petrovich hunting trip into the Empire, with Simo in tow.
>>28101374Honestly, I think Archerko would suit her much better.
>>28101374Ah, miss opportunities. You screwed up Lucas.
>>28101390He did, but that was by not seducing the shit outta Lucina.
>>28101374NEMOThe eternally sleepy scientist can still be found in the R&D department, quite literally cooking up new technologies in her sleep. Her current projects include developing a mass producible version of the Dragon, as well as more advanced avionic systems. Unfortunately, she doesn't have much time to do focus on her work thanks to Runaround always wrecking her equipment. One has to wonder why she even gives it all to Runaround in the first place when he inevitably wrecks in some way and she drags him back to her lab for long punishment sessions...
>>28101399Lucina and Morgan were best girls.Where is my Lucina route, anon who was writing it!
>>28101416>she drags him back to her lab for long punishment sessions...Kinky~
>>28101416Oh is that what they call it hey.
>>28101416Nemo confirmed for secret Dom?Kinky.
>>28101416CHARLOTTE STURMFUHRERCharlotte returned home with quite a bit of combat experience and the scars to prove it. Of course, she raised all sorts of hell back home, reverting to her old prankster ways. In a fit of mad paranoia, as well as a spike of international calls, Jager had Elizabeth covertly tap the line and was furious to find out Charlotte was in a long distance relationship with an Emmerian pararescue jumper she had met in Vitoze. Suffice to say it took the combined efforts of Sam, Charlotte, and Falynn to keep him from outright declaring war on Emmeria.
>>28101416So THATS why she and falynn spend so much time in the labs.They both share the same kinks and make new toys to use on their boys.
>>28101469We love you, Jager.
>>28101469Another missed opertunity, I wonder if she ever did like Lucas.
>>28101469Never got enough screentime. :(Damn anti-waifus
>>28101469FALYNN STURMFUHRERSomewhat like Morgan, Falynn returned to Gallia a changed girl. She was no longer concerned with having to live up to imaginary expectations and concentrated on just being a good engineer. Well, that and the stories of her bashing he brains out of Artificial Valkyria singlehandedly certainly did help. She's still dating Lucas, much to Heloise's delight and Jager's ire. Thankfully she still remembers to go for the shins.
>>28101492What, just because your rooster lost you call everyone who didn't vote for her an "anti-waifu"?
>>28101504Dont kill lucas, jaeger~>>28101511Nah, mine won. I ship Falynn.
>>28101492>>28101511But she had so little screen-time,
>>28101528Marklon go suck a dick
>>28101504LUCINAOut of all of the Wraiths, Lucina seemed to be the least affected out of all of them, which wasn't surprising considering her very basic outlook on life. Nevertheless, Lucas was still determined to get to be more social. This was easier said than done, though, but small headway was being made. Lucina innocently asking Ramirez how to make herself look pretty for boys was reason enough for him and Lucas to celebrate.
>>28101541Progress.Oh what might have been~
>>28101541Best Girl is Still Best girl.I wanted her to look pretty for Lucas....
>>28101541LUCAS WILLIAMSLucas returned to Gallia no longer a boy, but as a MAN. Well, that and that giant hulking suit of intimidating armor certainly helped. Lucas proved that Gunners no longer had to be a stationary class, and could be badass in their own right, which led to a rather noticeable surge in Gunner enlistments. Nemo has been run ragged trying to keep up demand for new Juggernaut suits, something Lucas feels a bit apologetic for. He's currently planning on using his leave time to take Falynn on a REAL date that totally wont be interrupted by ninjas or murderous fathers...
>>28101573>interrupted by ninjas or murderous fathers...Lucas confirmed for most interesting dates.
>>28101573>ninjas or murderous fathers...But that is so fun!
And that's it for the epilogues! Just remember that I'll be running semi-regular extra chapters to fill out gaps in the narrative or add some more depth. I've also got more SW89 and OC quest ideas in the pipeline, so be sure to keep an eye on my Twitter for updates!Or you could bother me on IRC or something, if that's how you roll.See you soon, guys!
>>28101592See you later, Space Cowboy.
>>28101592Thanks for the ride Merc, looking forward to seeing what you do next.
>>28101592Thanks for running merc. Many thanks for all of it, we'll see you around yes?
>>28101592...Well, this should probably be the point where I release those Sparky/Edwin kid sheets.Gah.Dammit Merc, now I'm really BADLY itching to write up my own VMQ quest now. What. Should. I. Dooooooooooooo....
>>28101592Thanks merc, I'm really looking forward to more SW89. I still have complaints about VMQ2 partially about Morgan and Luciana, partially on other stuff but I'm sure you did your best.I hope we have another character like Tarmin and Luciana in your next quest.
>>28101592Thanks for the stories Merc! I've stuck with both Merceneries quests from the beginning and I can't wait to see what you do next.
>>28101592There's been an IRC?
>>28101615>Dammit Merc, now I'm really BADLY itching to write up my own VMQ quest now. What. Should. I. Dooooooooooooo....DO IT, FAGGOT
>>28101627The quest general IRC.
>>28101592Thanks for the ride, merc.It was cut short but it was fun.A one shot had better be a date with Lucas and FalynnAlso what about the FalynnxLucas Lewd scenarios? We didn't even come across one!
>>28101627I usually lurk in the qtg channel and #swq
>>28101592But merc, what was in Edwin's box that we didn't open? Inquiring minds that can't go to IRC want to know!
>>28101644A picture of him and Karla together.>>28101637One of my friends is actually working on one. In fact he's the same guy who wrote up that Lucas/Lara one.I guess I could post the link on the twitter or in the next thread depending on when he finishes.
>>28101628...GAAAAAH.Well, I already have a writing project I'm mapping out right now. But fuck, I might come back to this at some point.You still check your email?
>>28101652More laraxlucas.Pretty please?
>>28101592Just wanted you to know VMQ is basically got me in to quests. So thanks for destroying any chance I had for a sleep schedule following so many random quests! Seriously though thanks for running.
>>28101592Good run Merc Com, can't wait to see what you do next.>>28101637>first spoilerLucas and Falynn get to the restaurant and find that sitting at one of the tables is both Jack Ryan and Jager Sturmfuhrer.
>>28101652>A picture of him and Karla together.Dawww.
>>28101615You and me both bud. But I'm pretty sure it would be shit by comparison, if I had to run one though it'd totally be Valkyrian MarinesSeriously that stint in Albion with the Lion of The Empire was glorious.
>>28101652Ask him to do one with Lucina. I need closure!
>>28101844I'll get one done. Eventually.
>>28101880Where will we find it?
>>28101889That's a good question. Probably on one of the extra chapters.
>>28101924Ah....so we won't see it in months then. This is really bothering more then it should be. Maybe I should take a crack at it as well
>>28101992Well the more the merrier. I've already got it written down, it's just my obsessive quality control won't let me release it just yet.
>>28102011My writing is terrible though so it won't do much good. Though I might give it a shot. > I've already got it written downWhy! Please let it be one that pulls on my heart strings
>>28102037Hopefully it will. That was part of the intent, anyways.
>>28102050.....Now, I'm looking forward to the next extra chapter for entirely different reasns
Thanks for running, MC. Such a shame it had to be cut short.
Yo Merc, still alive?And thanks friend, I'll see you again.
>>28102328there are still extra chapters. so no big worry. Kind of glad it ended when it did
>>28101592Now I'm just thinking of the various possible side stories.>Morgan meeting her mother>beach episode>A chapter about Anya
>>28102544no beach episode it will be painful
>>28102549The beach/pool episode has been a staple in Valkyria Chronicles. We MUST have one. It is tradition!!
>>28102898>implying the fight with Dragovich wasn't the beach episode More like deep sea fishing but it's the same shit.
