Preemptive Thursday edition!Super special Sunday edition!Missed past threads? Catch them here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=pararescue+witchesTwitter: https://twitter.com/MercCommandYou are Lieutenant RACHEL KELSEY, though pretty much everybody just calls you Red. Recently, your commanding officer, Captain Pierce, had been wounded in action and is currently recovering from his wounds.However, the war doesn't stop for anybody, and for the past few days you and your fellow witches Janice and Tarin have been pressing forward without him, with Janice taking temporary command of the unit. Thankfully, Colonel Anderson was aware of the precarious position your unit was in and opted to give you fairly "easy" assignments. Just extraction missions relatively close to friendly lines, and with plenty of allied support. However, you couldn't help but feel that the potential of your unit was being wasted. At least the work was keeping your mind off the matter.Things weren't so simple with Bree when Janice had to break the news to her. Bree nearly threw her desk out the window and required some physical restraint from Janice, Tarin, and a couple of her own witches. Suffice to say Bree was taking on an even bigger workload than ever to occupy herself. You and Janice were a bit worried.Either way, you were due for another standby flight today, though this time you're on a later shift, so you've got quite a bit of free time for now.>Go visit Pierce.>Go check on Bree.>Hang out with Janice and Tarin.>Check up on your aircrew.>Other
>>28827988>>Go check on Bree.
>>28827988>>Go visit Pierce.
>>28827988>Go check on Bree.Pierce can go stew in his own regrets for a while longer; there are people still working who deserve our attention more.
>>28827988>otherGo and find Bree so the both of you can beret Cap with the 'no more heroics' speech.
>>28827988>>Go check on Bree.Sisters Assemble!
>>28828044What regrets, we saved the witches and saved lives.
>>28827988>Go check on Bree.Little sibling meet bigger sibling. For some reason, I'm both anticipating yet dreading this quest today. I guess due to us being gung-ho last thread and Merc's saying there will be consequences Has me a little nervious
>>28827988You decide to go check up on Bree, see how she's doing. After all, she didn't exactly handle Pierce's wounding too well. However, as you come up to Bree's office, you see Count and L standing inside, trying to peek through a crack in the door."Hey guys, what's going on?" You ask as you approach."Shhhhh!" Count puts a finger to her lips. "Quiet, please!""What's going on?" You bring you voice down to a whisper."Bree's asleep." L says, pointing at the crack in the door. You peek inside and see that indeed, Bree was facedown on her desk, snoring loudly."First time we've seen her asleep in two days." L mumbles. "We thought it'd be best to let her get some rest."You're not on standby?" You blink."Even the brass noticed something was up, so they're cutting down on our workload." L shrugs. "I doubt the rest of the squadron would have been able to keep up with her any longer."Huh..."Suddenly, the phone on Bree's desk starts ringing loudly, causing all three of you to jump in surprise. However, Bree doesn't even seem phased and keeps snoring."Should we...?" Count asks."Might be important." L nods. The girl quietly opens the door, tiptoes in, and lifts the phone off its receiver.""Sorry, Major Pierce isn't available at the moment." L says. "Can I take a message?"The witch stands there for a few seconds, nods, and silently hangs up the phone. She then tiptoes back to the hall and turns to you."That was the base hospital. They were calling to say your CO just woke up.">Hit afterburners!>Wake Bree up and tell her the good news.>Other
>>28828133Arguably. We also put ourselves in danger to do, which caused the witches to put THEMSELVES in danger to get us out.That's the part of random heroics that the movies always leave out. When you try to play the hero, and fail at it, everyone else has to risk their lives to save your ass.
>>28828369>[x]Wake Bree up and tell her the good news.then together in sisterhoodness>[x]Hit afterburners!
>>28828369>>Wake Bree up and tell her the good news.>>28828391True, but I;m still afraid for the consequences that will follow. Since it's early in the quest Merc might go easy...I hope.
>>28828369>>Wake Bree up and tell her the good news.
>>28828451>True, but I;m still afraid for the consequences that will follow. Since it's early in the quest Merc might go easy...I hope.I hope fucking not.
>>28828521Want to go really hardcore on this huh? I fear our chances.
>>28828369>Wake Bree up and tell her the good news.She's gonna want to wallop William at the first opportunity.
>>28828606You want to do heroic stupid actions? Reap what you sow. That's all I got to say.
>>28828674Thing was, I was up to distracting the witch but when we were down to our side arm and one bullet left. I wanted to abort but let's just say Sundays nights are never the best days for tg
>>28828369Well, it almost didn't seem fair to let Bree sleep through this. You walk into Bree's office and start poking at her face."Bree. Breeeeeeee." You say. "Bree, wake up!"However, Bree remains stubbornly asleep. Well, it looks like you had to pull out the big guns. Remembering a little trick Janice taught you, you pinch Bree's nose. The witch snorts and flails wildly before falling out of her chair."Gaaaah!" Bree shrieks. "What the hell is going on!?!?""Good morning to you too, Bree." You sigh, helping her back up to her feet. "We just got a call from the hospital. Cap just woke up.""What?!" Bree's eyes widen. "That's wonderful!""Isn't it?""Yeah! Now I can go kill him again!" Bree nods as she storms out of the door, causing Count and L to shriek and seek cover. "I'll show him what happens when he scares his own sister to death!">Ummm, you should take it easy...>Hey, I want to get a few punches in, too!>Other
>>28828715>I wanted to abortHere's the problem, chief. You know what you were "distracting"? A tankwitch is essentially a more mobile MBT that has a shield capable of blocking most tank rounds. You decided to aggro THAT. It was a dumb decision from the outset, and once you committed to it, there was literally no way to extract yourself since she can outrun you with ease.
>>28828760>>Hey, I want to get a few punches in, too!
>>28828760>Hey, I want to get a few punches in, too!
>>28828760>>Ummm, you should take it easy...
>>28828760>Ummm, you should take it easy...
>>28828760>Hey, I want to get a few punches in, too!Ha ha time to finish the job the soviet started.
>>28828775Our Tank Witch, got blown away by one-shot. I agree not one of the most wisest of choices but it was Sunday, Sundays (from my experience) often turns ugly. In hindsight, distracting her with our main armament until one of our own girls were sent down, might had been best bet but in the end we were all gung ho.
>>28828851I said "most". And either way, the shield could and did block our (comparatively) pathetic rifle rounds. We were lucky that she didn't decide to swat us right then and there.
So when is it alright to make insane choices that probably would end in failure? There are accounts of absolute insanity that worked.
Has there been a quest with Spec Ops or Commando witches or somesuch yet?
>>28828906What we did wasn't insane, it was stupid. Not the good kind of stupid.>>28828958Tankers '89 has SF witches.
>>28828958this one counts as spec ops
>>28828887The Tank Witch managed to get a round in before the enemy tank witch returned the shot blowing her away. Our rounds managed to pierce through after the initial tank shell hit her. again I just hope this choice doesn't effect us in the long term
>>28829021>again I just hope this choice doesn't effect us in the long termAnd again I hope they do.
>>28829005I mean something actually highlighting such, not featuring them during tank battles.Girls with sharp knives and silencers in their natural habitat, if you will.
>>28828760"Wait up, I want to get a few punches in, too!" You say, cracking your knuckles."I like the way you think, Red!" Bree grins.With Bree around, it was a simple matter arranging (or in this case, hijacking) a ride to the hospital. After profusely apologizing to two poor, traumatized airmen, you follow Bree into the front lobby of the hospital. However, as you whip around the corner, you crash into somebody else. Bree is too excited to realize what happened and bolts off without you."Ohmygosh, I'm so sorry!" You gasp, and then realize the other person was also a witch. She looked a bit familiar..."Don't worry, it's nothing." The other witch says. However, her eyes have the same moment of recognition that you do. "Wait a minute... haven't I seen you somewhere before...?">Sorry, I'm a bit busy, gotta go!>You were that tank witch!>Other
>>28829062>You were that tank witch!
>>28829062>>You were that tank witch!U DA WITCH, GURL!
>>28829062>Sorry, I'm a bit busy, gotta go!"Outta my way, we've got to kill an idiot!"Cock sidearm for dramatic purposes.
>>28829062>>You were that tank witch!
>>28829062>You were that tank witch!Cap'll still be there to punch.
>>28828760>>Ummm, you should take it easy...I can't blame Pierce as much as the retards who decided to go full PILOTA reminder: when confronted with a tank witch with a giant metal claw, you do not try shooting her with anything less than an anti-tank rifle if not better.
>>28829062>Other"You were that tank witch! Did your tanks get out okay?"
>>28829035So anons won't make stupid choices like that again? Or for a better more realistic stoyy?\As far as strike witches goes.
>>28829157>realism>doing unrealistically stupid thingschoose one already.
>>28829062> Achtung, Panzer!
>>28829124>anti-tank rifle if not better.How about next time we tell the tank to take the shot.
>>28829196I didn't make the choice dammit, I wanted to distract her and call a witch in to finish the job or use our tank witch.>>28829232I don't think our tanks will be able to handle that witch without casualties. What gets me even more pissed off is that we just proved bitchtits right,
>>28829021My issue with all this bitching is...we didn't really have any better option. The Soviet witch dropped our friendly witch on her ass with one shot, and it apparently took her a good long time to get up, which left our unit exposed to crazy Soviet tankwitch. Notice how the Thundercat witch didn't help until well after we were pulped, which means she was out for a critical amount of time, more than enough for someone to get killed if we hadn't provided a crucial distraction. Honestly, the people bitching now would have bitched no matter how it went down, I just learn to tune them out by replying then jumping straight to the next post.
This thread really has tanked in quality. Enough with the bitching and move on.
>>28829316the issue wasn't distracting but the matter of continuing to shoot when it was clear it was a bad idea.And before you put some BS about speed, you overlook agility as i doubt a full speed tank witch is anywhere as agile as say a person on foot, let alone an air witch.
>>28829336agreed I am about to drop this like mercs
>>28829062"Hey, wait a minute." You pause. "You were that tank witch, with the Thundercats!""You were one of the PJs that saved my partner!" She says at the exact same time.There's a brief pause as both of you are momentarily unsure of what to do."Um, my name's Rachel, but you can just call me Red. Pretty much everybody does." You saw a bit awkwardly. "Tiffany. But you can just call me Tiff." The tank witch says and holds her hand out. "I never got a chance to thank you guys for saving Alex. The doctors said if it weren't for you guys they'd have had to remove her damaged kidney.""Yeah well, you could live with just one right?" You laugh nervously as you shake Tiff's hand."Yes, but then there would've been a chance she'd be deemed unfit for combat." Tiff responds. "Again, thanks to you she won't have to worry about that.""It's nothing, really! Just doing my job!" You grin. "Actually, I'm a bit busy, I'm here to visit someone.""Oh, sorry for intruding, then." Tiff bows politely.>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.>Ah hell, drag her along with you.>Other
>>28829383>>Ah hell, drag her along with you.Also, quick. Before Bree kills him.
>>28829383>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.Just remember, he's earned this.Even if he's in the ICU.
>>28829383>>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.>>Ah hell, drag her along with you.Both, let's do both
>>28829336CAAAAAAAAAAAARLOS, YOU DAMNYANKEE SUMBITCH.But in all seriousness, toughen up, faggots. Our character is an officer in the United States Air Force. He's a Pararescue Jumper. Their motto is "That others may live."I fully expect us to live up to this. If that means we get BADEND GAME OVER FUCKERS, then so be it. Our character will have died doing his duty; saving lives, or providing the distraction for someone else to save 'em.
>>28829383>Ah hell, drag her along with you.The more the merrier.
>>28829383>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.
>>28829383>>Ah hell, drag her along with you.
>>28829346Full speed probably not, but she was bobbing and weaving towards us...wait, can you weave on treads? You know what, I'll pull some BS about fucking magic, because if she was doing that while we were shooting her while her shields were down, then honestly, she probably DID have the agility to catch our wiry asses.
>>28829383>Ah hell, drag her along with you.
>28829383>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.
>>28829405Yes, by being smart. BY BEING SMART. YOU DON'T SAVE LIVES BY CHARGING IN LIKE AN IDIOT. YOU JUST MAKE IT MORE LIKELY OTHER PEOPLE WILL DIE SAVING YOU.
>>28829405Does that include endangering the lives of others as well when they try to rescue us when we do something stupid?
>>28829405It doesn't excuse outright stupidity. You're like those retards in SWQ going "PILOT" as if it excused the insanely stupid shit that proceeded that word.>>28829429then she was likely in foot mode, and likely not quite as fast as in tread mode.
>>28829383>>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.WITCH DEATH HUMPING
>>28829466>>28829473>>28829475We just have to think with our heads next time, it just shows how high paced the story was at the time and we thought with feelings then with our heads. We have to be careful next time, and hope others will do as well.
>>28829383"Say, do you think we can tie our CO to the main barrel of one of your Abrams as punishment for his stupidity? Your CO won't mind, right?"Revenge is a go.
>>28829383>>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.>>Ah hell, drag her along with you.
>>28829527>we thought with feelings then with our heads.Isn't that the exact opposite of what an officer is taught and trained to do?
>>28829527>it just shows how high paced the story was at the time and we thought with feelings then with our heads. You see, that's the problem. We're supposed to be Special Forces. It's literally our job to keep our heads while doing this. We cannot afford to go full retard under fire like that. It's breaking character at the very least.
>>28829383>>Proceed to administer Cap's punishment.>>Ah hell, drag her along with you.>>28829559He already said we'll be careful and not do it again. What else do you want?
>>28829527I know that, not sure about the manchildren who approved such stupid choices.>>28829571Agreed, too bad it's related to two stories which seem to reward stupidity (SWQ and SW89)
>>28829559Said officer was being controlled by anons late at night. Not a good combination. >>28829571We have to keep that in mind next time.
>>28829577>What else do you want?For that to actually happen for once. It hasn't yet. The last time the thread said that about Young, we wound up being court-martialed because we tried to steal ice cream from a goddamn battleship.
>>28829577Pierce tied a marine to his helo's fuel boom when said marine gave him shit. We've gotta think of something more extravagant as his punishment.Or do nothing at all and let him stew waiting.
>>28829581I might have to disagree wht original swq was fun but stupid. SW89 kind of reduced the stupid and we had suffered some repercussions from our actions. It's just that I think this quest is trying to get us to get us away from that mindset.
>>28829607said court-martial wasn't much in the end.>>28829628Indeed but it's harder to get stupid out of people than it is to put it in them.
>>28829607swq runs on push buton, receive awesome.You're comparing apples to oranges here. All fruit but different species.
>this threadEnough with the bitching. Anon did stupid. We know. Get over it. Let's continue running damage control so it doesn't spill over next time damnit. I just want to lurk and enjoy the quest.
ITS THE KITTY HAWK ALL OVER AGAIN!
>>28829646I agree, though I feel that we were dumped with a bucket of cold water once we realized that. We just have to be more careful I guess.
>>28829688Honestly, if there's this much shitflinging, then it just shows people are invested in the character.
>>28829651Not really as it's the same common group of readers, which is why SWQ's trend of heavily encouraging stupidity to be mildly determental in other stories to say the least.>>28829688Not so sure about the people who go voting like they were some goddamn video game character.>>28829698It's very comparable to that, even down to people acting like there was nothing wrong with that.>>28829703One can only hope.
>>28829607To be fair, that was from an officer who already wanted Young crucified next to Jesus, and there are actually people who didn't realize that the name of the game in SWQ was "PILOT" and all of its implications? Are you sure you aren't the idiot here?True, its a different story in Merc Commands' quests, but he put his quest in a setting known for its crazed antics, young girls attempting rape on older gentlemen, and jolly heroics, a few bumps along the way are to be expected.
>>28829383Ah hell, she was there, too. You might as well drag her along with you. At the very least to thank him, and maybe even help beat him up a bit. "Come on, Tiff, I'll show you my CO!" You say, taking her hand and dragging her along with you."W-what?!" The tank witch blinks."He was that idiot distracting that Russian tankwitch and got the snot beaten out of him for." You say."Ah, yeah, I remember that." Tiff nods. "Brave, but kind of stupid.""I know, right? Standing and shooting like he was the Lone Ranger, or something!" You scoff. "Me and my squad helped write up this little instruction manual for him for how to deal with tank witches in the future!""'How to Dodge.'" Tiff says flatly as she reads the little booklet you gave her. "Really?""Apparently it's a specialized skill you gotta teach." You shrug. "I hope Bree hasn't killed him yet.""Oh dear."By the time you reach Cap's room, the situation... is pretty much how you expected it. Bree is busy throttling Cap, crying and laughing at the same time, with Cap trying to fight her off and trying to reach for the CALL NURSE button."DON'T DO ANYTHING LIKE THAT AGAIN, YOU HEAR ME?!?" Bree blubbers."O-okay, Bree! J-just let me breathe!" Cap chokes.Finally, with all her pent up frustration vented, Bree lets go and sighs."Anyways, it's nice to see that you're okay, Will." Bree grins and makes her way to the door. "Sorry I can't stay longer, but I have a boatload of paperwork to finish. Keep him out of trouble, okay, Red?"With that, Bree makes her exit."Glad to see Bree's okay." Cap sighs and turns to you. "How have you and the other girls been holding up?""WE. WERE. SO. GODDAMN. WORRIED!" You wail, repeatedly punching Cap in the shoulder. You were pissed off as all hell, but after every punch the anger slowly drained away and was replaced by plain relief.(cont)
>>28829849"Um, am I interrupting something here...?" Tiff asks."No, we're just making sure he doesn't do something like that again!" You sigh, finally letting up on the punches."You could have at least alternated shoulders." Cap sighs as he rubs his undoubtedly now bruised left shoulder."You totally deserved it." You say, leaning forward and hugging him. "Glad to see you're back.""Ugh, yeah." Cap frowns. "It feels like my chest was pushed in by a semi.""Eh, it kinda was.""Oh, and it's you!" Cap cranes his head to get a good look at Tiff. "I never actually caught your name.""It's Tiffany, sir. Lieutenant Tiffany Chen." The tank witch salutes."Hey, no need to be formal here." Cap says. "What brings you here?""I was visiting a friend." Tiff says. "Though I never imagined I'd run into you here, too.""Well, it's a small world." Cap shrugs."Anyways, thank you both very much. The Thundercats are in your debt." Tiff bows politely again. "I apologize, but I must take my leave. I can't afford to be off the front for too long."With that, Tiff makes her exit as well."Huh, interesting girl." Cap muses.>Stay a while and talk for a bit.>Actually, you better start preparing for your flight.>Other
>>28829859>Actually, you better start preparing for your flight.
>>28829727Could the Kitty Hawk incident be prevented? I but we vaguely remember it were facing subs, dreadnots and fighters everywhere.Retreating on one front meant the destruion of the other. Not that I'm saying it was right but we were stuck in a rock and a hard place.
>>28829859>[x] get jelly, have no idea why
>>28829849>"'How to Dodge.'"I see what you did there, Wraiths.
>>28829859>>Actually, you better start preparing for your flight.
>"I know, right? Standing and shooting like he was the Lone Ranger, or something!" You scoff. "Me and my squad helped write up this little instruction manual for him for how to deal with tank witches in the future!">"'How to Dodge.'" Tiff says flatly as she reads the little booklet you gave her. "Really?">"Apparently it's a specialized skill you gotta teach." You shrug. "I hope Bree hasn't killed him yet."He's gotta take that on every mission from now on.>Actually, you better start preparing for your flight.
>>28829876It was a bad situation all around. It happens.
>>28829876the key issue is that anon choose to rush towards to the big bosses without considering the other things, which if taken care of could have opened up the allied craft to help somehow.Rushing towards those big things reeks of vidya logic as in such games if you take down the big bosses fast enough, MISSION COMPLETE and not having to worry about the lingering battle.I feel it was leaving our allies floundering against the enemy mooks was what caused the kitty hawk to enter the danger range.>>28829859>>Stay a while and talk for a bit.
>>28829859>otherGo over the handbook Bree left him. In agonizing detail. He failed to avoid your punches. He needs lessons pronto.
>>28829859>Actually, you better start preparing for your flight.There are lives to save out there.
>>28829979and a russian tank witch that is watching the sky....waiting
>>28829859Threaten to tie Pierce to the boom of your helo like he did those Muhrines if he does something stupid again. Maybe it'll sober him.
>>28829939I thought anon at the time that the dreads were the biggest threat. They went towards the big boss to minimize the casualties considering their hyper beams. It was just that there was three if I recall with fighters and subs.
>>28829986que jaws theme
Wow, I'm actually glad I only just caught the thread.
>>28829939Possibly, yes, but also, possibly, no. Hypotheticals are fun, but mean jack shit in the moment when a decision has to be made. Killing the Flying carrier was the primary mission, you know, the one we are supposed to complete at all costs? Besides, stopping the carrier meant crippling air superiority, which would have created a better opportunity for allied craft than dicking around with the dreads. We did the best we could, casualties are to be expected, can't win them all etc etc
>>28830013She just wants some love...
>>28830030I as well
>>28830038>>28829994>>28829939um can we set the Kittyhawk aside and focus more on this thread? and the possibility of Red Jelly?
>>28829994>I thought anon at the time that the dreads were the biggest threatBut the dreads weren't what we went after, it was the crippled flying carrier that we went after.And it wasn't even the dreads that were a danger at that point, it was the enemy fighter cover which was tearing the Phantoms and allied fighters apart.And there were no subs in that fight at all.So instead of protecting the other allied fighters (who weren't in air superiority frames like we were) so that they could fire their anti-ship missiles safely against the flying carrier and the dreads from range, safe from maser fire, we went straight after the flying carrier.Which, due to Merlin's abilities, we crippled by firing regular anti-fighter missiles into its engine intakes.
>>28830038Don't try to deny that wasn't vidya logic if not an outright disregard for our own allies. There's a reason why Kostantina gleefully refered to Frank as a butcher: because in his seeming zeal to defeat enemies, he disregarded his allies."The best we could do?" BULL FUCKING SHIT.>>28830069I wish but both things have the same underlying issues (stupid voters who weave webs of massive self-justifying bullshit)
>>28830063why do I get the feeling that she will just injure people now just to lure us out
>>28830069Why should Red be jealous?
>>28830069we can call the jelly school
So obviously the only way the Kittyhawk argument will be put to rest is if Ghost just outright tells us if it was a good or bad choice.Ghost, please, for the love of god. I don't care which way it goes, just put your foot down to shut these retards up.
>>28830078no we had the anti-ship missiles
>>28830038>Besides, stopping the carrier meant crippling air superiority, which would have created a better opportunity for allied craft than dicking around with the dreadsActually, no that's not true. Since the flying carrier had no defenses besides lots of armor and its own fighter escort, and any fighter trying to land on it to rearm and refuel would have made for an easy target, even for a Phantom.And the flying carrier had already launched its entire fighter complement, since it wasn't launching anything when we found it.
>>28830063>find enemy soldier>willing to take her on alone>brave, reckless, foolish even>able to survive a blow that shattered his ribcage"Yes, he shall be my mate. Come Yankee, we shall have strong children to fight and to work for Glorious Motherland."
>>28830078>so that they could fire their anti-ship missilesThe Phantoms had none. Only we did. The Phantoms were all loaded for anti-air because of all the fuckoff-nuts amount of Russian planes in the air.
>>28830078>So instead of protecting the other allied fighters (who weren't in air superiority frames like we were) so that they could fire their anti-ship missiles safely against the flying carrier and the dreads from range, safe from maser fire, we went straight after the flying carrier.>Which, due to Merlin's abilities, we crippled by firing regular anti-fighter missiles into its engine intakes.Right, now you're just starting shit.We were the ones carrying the ASMs and the allied planes didn't have them in any large numbers. The ASMs were hurting the wyvern's performance and part of the reason we went after the carrier first was to loose them and be air sup fighter again.We fired the ASMs into the carrier's sides. Then when the dreads were retreating, all our allied planes had were sidewinders and AMRAAMs and those were doing squat.
>>28830131Kostantina has a sister?
>>28830131Assuming all Russain Witches are either brained washed, reluctant to fight, or kotantina.
>>28829859A brief flash of... something zips by in your head. You're not quite sure what it was, but you definitely felt something when Cap said those words. Was it... envy?Nah, can't be.You take a look at the wall clock and gasp. How the hell did so much time pass!?"I'm really sorry, Cap, but I gotta go, too!" You say quickly, dropping your homemade manual in the pile of letters that had gathered on the bedstand next to Cap's bed. "Still fighting a war and all!""Good luck, Red. Say hi to the others, for me.""I will!" You nod as you dash out of the room.With you mood brightened, you make your way back to your unit's staging area. You see Hoskins and Rex loading gear into the Pave Hawk while Janice and Tarin are prepping to get into their strikers."Ah, Red, I was wondering where you were!" Janice smiles as she sees you approach. "We were just about to call someone to search for you!""Sorry about that, I found out that Cap woke up." You say as you crack open your equipment locker and start putting on your combat gear. "I just came back from the hospital.""How nice! Me and Tarin would have to visit him after this mission, then." Janice nods. "Right, Tarin?""Yeah." She says simply.(cont)>Other
>>28830262As usual, once everybody is geared up and Janice and Tarin are locked into their strikers, the Pave Hawk slowly takes off with the two witches following close behind. Ramstein becomes a speck in the distance as you get closer to the front."RR5, good to see you out here." Rescue Ranger One's voice buzzes in the radio. "Just in time, too. We got an assignment for you. Uploading the data on your tactical net."You review the mission details being sent to you and frown. Apparently a small four man Green Beret team went out on a recon mission that quickly went south. As of their last communication, they were trapped in a village about ten kilometers behind Russian lines, with all four members WIA. Support options were a bit limited. No ground assets since it was enemy territory. Projected AA presence was light, but could still prove problematic for potential air support. Not to mention it was a threat to your own bird as well."Sounds a bit risky to send just one bird in." You frown."I suppose we'd be less likely to be detected." Janice says.>Let's do this.>Shouldn't somebody else handle this?>Can't we ask for a bit more support?
>>28830183Less psycho yandere, more Russian peasant farmgirl who throws hay bales around with one hand."Natasha, your brother Vasily has driven tractor into ditch. You must pull it out.""Yes, father."
>>28830183You didn't honestly think they'd only ever make one, did you?She might have more than one sister, too. >Actually, you better start preparing for your flightWe still have a mission to do, regardless of if we're down a body or not.
>>28830280>Can't we ask for a bit more support?
>>28830280>>Let's do this.
>>28830280>>Shouldn't somebody else handle this?Not to sound cowardy but considering what's situation and the condition of the unit, I'm not sure if they'd be the best for this case.But I doubt it'll stop certain people from going gungho into it.
>>28830280I thought that Red was the little sister figure....Whatever, we can worry about that later. >Let's do this.
>>28830280>Can't we ask for a bit more support?At least one more Strike or Tank Witch.
>>28830280>>Let's do this.GUNG HO DO DIS EW RAH
>>28830331>But I doubt it'll stop certain people from going gungho into it.Of course not. You honestly believe anyone will learn? Ever?
>>28830334Just because she's the little sister figure doesn't mean she doesn't have feelings for the MC. What usually happens with those types is that they're blown off more or less and have to settle for someone else.>>28830347Without driving the point over and over? Not so sure.
>>28830280[x] Let's do this.Send Tarin in first to ascertain how wounded they are. If things aren't too bad, ditch the chopper and have Janice just carry Red in herself.>>28830289goast pls >>28830113
>>28830331The condition of the unit is that it's only down one person, and not a Witch at that. So I don't think that should be a consideration.However, given that it is behind enemy lines, having an extra Witch or two, or something else to provide support, sounds reasonable.
>>28830289My feelings towards that Tank witch has shifted immensely due to that comment. Unknown Tank girl is second best witch now. on my listing
>>28830280>Leh do et>other"Tarin, scout ahead and see if you can find us a window with no ack-ack."
>>28830280>Can't we ask for a bit more support?People, just fucking ask for more support. Fuck sakes. It's not that fucking hard to decide on.
>>28830376I know right.>>28830391Part of my thinking is>"I suppose we'd be less likely to be detected."Better to not be detected then abit more support.
>>28830369the unit is three witches, one of them a rookie that should have been taking lessons from the leader. Oh wait said leader's laid up after a case of temporary retardation.>>28830376Not this shit again? I doubt we'll be lucky enough to find a sweet girl at heart this time.>>28830280>Can't we ask for a bit more support?We should get a bit more support if just to make up for the man being in traction.
>>28830407>Not this shit again? I doubt we'll be lucky enough to find a sweet girl at heart this time.She doesn't need a sweet heat, just sweet tits.
>>28830407>one of them a rookie that should have been taking lessons from the leaderAnd that rookie is still taking lessons from the XO, who is a fellow Witch.I'm not seeing how the capabilities of the squad have been reduced significantly, since there's still an experienced officer in the squad and all three Witches are still combat capable.
>>28830407What are you talking about, I just find this character to be the second most interesting witch so far,
>>28830425that doesn't make your logic any better when Janice certainly isn't lacking.>>28830441After Konstantina's first appearance a small faction appeared rallying for her for no other reason than ax crazy enemy witch. Oh look it's happening again.That and I'd rather not have some russian witch be a black hole of attention.
>>28830471Konstantina was also an actual character. This one is not. Unless Merc adds or was planning to add her. That's up to him, not the players.
>>28830471Ax crazy is interesting, I see it as the regular enemy we will meet instead of generic Russian soldier a or something. Also I only mention she's the second most interesting.
>>28830471Dude it's ONE FUCKING GUY. Why do you even care? By arguing with him, you're drawing even more attention to her.
>>28830492Yeah that revelation had me tempted to side with her as it pushed her beyond "ax crazy enemy witch", that and I'm still 'shopping' for who I should support in the waifu wars.
>>28830537Let's not go into that subject now.
>>28830280"You know, we could use a bit more support..." You say."Let me talk to RR1, then." Janice says.Janice then switches off to another channel. You see her obviously talking over the radio for a minute or two, obviously haggling with RR1 with what sort of support to provide."I managed to wrangle an Apache out of him." Janice says. "It should rendezvous with us before we reach Russian lines."As if on cue, an Apache attack helicopter flies into formation right next to your Pave Hawk."RR5, this is Ugly. Command said you needed an escort?""Thank you, Ugly, your help is much appreciated!" Janice smiles and waves at Apache crew. You see the gunner wave back while the pilot seems to cough awkwardly."Anyways, you want us to hang back a bit to take out anything that tries to take a shot at you, or do you want us to take point?" Ugly asks.>Have Ugly take point.>Have Ugly stay back a bit.>Other
>>28830615>>Have Ugly stay back a bit.Get in and Get Out

>>28830615>Have Ugly stay back a bit>other"How many Hellfires you packing, Ugly?""Tarin, you think you can spot for Ugly's Hellfires if we run into any ack-ack or russian armor?"

>>28830627>>28830635That was referring to SW89 mainly, with this I'm just waiting and seeing as it's too soon, though Janice is mildly tempting so far.>>28830641well since the can's open, I'll say it'd be a long shot due to different theater of operation. Though Chris seems to be a foil to Bitchtits in many ways. That being said, it's too soon to tell.

>>28830745>Janice is mildly tempting so far.Caution: Janice is the Mami. She's either going to Episode Three on us, or crack under the pressure and go full Episode Ten.
>>28830822I was going to go with a the Mi-24, but those work as well
>>28830837Tarin is the Homura then?
>>28830615"Just hang back and watch our backs, will you?" You say."With pleasure." Ugly responds with a bit of smugness. You then notice the Apache fall back a bit and take position directly behind Janice.Men. They were the same across all the branches. You shake your head."Tarin dear, could you please scout our flightpath? It would be terribly inconvenient if we ran into an enemy AA emplacement.""Roger that." You see Tarin pull ahead before shimmering out of existence.Fortunately, Command already had possible approach vectors past Russian lines figured out. Your tactical map was marked with points where scouts determined chances of detection by the Russians were the smallest. It's not as if they could man every square inch of the line. It was just a matter of picking a point and hoping the spooks did their job right.Fortunately, getting into Russian territory was relatively simple. You managed to squeeze your way through a relatively quiet sector, flying low and fast to keep from being seen on radar or from a distance. Fortunately, despite Bullseye's risky and sometimes downright dangerous low altitude flying, Ugly manages to keep up."This is Tarin." You radio buzzes. "I have a visual on the town.""What's the situation?" Janice asks."Not good. It's crawling with Russians." Tarin remarks. at least one platoon of infantry, maybe two. There's a pair of BTRs and a BMP, possible command element.""Hmmm, that's troublesome. Where are the Berets?""No visual. Nothing on radio, either, but the Russians are sweeping the town, so they have to still be down there somewhere.""Hmmm..." Janice frowns.>Go in loud. Have Janice, Tarin, and Ugly knock the snot out of the Russians while you land and search for the Berets.>Handle it subtly.

>>28830861>Handle it subtly. Have someone attempt to draw off the Russians while you sneak in and search for the Berets.Tarin can sneak in, cause a ruckus, and sneak out. While the Russians move toward where she caused a ruckus, we can come in and search for the Green Berets.And by ruckus, I mean dropping a grenate into the open door of a BMP and putting an arrow between the commander's eyes.

>>28830861>otherHang back and watch the Russians to see what armor assets they have. Watch their search vectors and determine where they are heading next. Key your mic and see if you can get a distress signal from the Berets. We have time, not a lot of time, but some time to see what we're up against. Have Tarin mark any APC or tanks the russian's might have for Ugly's Hellfires. Janice provides air support as usual while also keeping an eye out for ack-ack.
Well, it's obvious that people haven't learned to use their heads.
>>28830988Sorry, let me clarify, have Janice, Tarin, and Ugly strafe their armor and GTFO of the immediate area.
>>28831000We already know what "armor" they have. 2 BTRs and a BMP
>>28831026Sure that's what we *see*, we don't know if they have anything else.
>>28831003And you obviously haven't learned to talk out of anything other than your ass.
>>28830861>Handle it subtly.As subtly as helicopters can, at any rate. Tarin's our best bet at making this work without starting any unnecessary bullshit before we're well prepared.
>>28830861>>Handle it subtly. Have someone attempt to draw off the Russians while you sneak in and search for the Berets.
>>28830945.......shit.Better not have some Kubey knock off trying to get Pierce to sign a contract to become a Gnome boy.

>>28831121>TarinShe can cause the most chaos in the sneakiest of ways

>>28831121"Tarin, would you be a dear and provide a bit of diversion for us?" Janice says in a sweet singsong voice, despite the fact that her words were going to mean a lot of dead Russians."Roger that. Engaging."You hear a few distant cracks of an M14 and brief pause of silence. A few more cracks sound out before you hear a steady stream of AK fire as the Russians try to engage Tarin. You can just imagine her slowly circling the town, picking Russians off at her leisure."I took out the command vehicle. The BTRs are retreating and the infantry are scattering. If you're going in, you better do it now." Tarin reports."Okay, we won't have much time until the Russians start calling for backup." Janice says as your Pave Hawk lands on the outskirts of the town. "I'll keep trying to raise them on the radio. The best we know is that they're in a white, three story building in the southern half of town.""Got it." You say as you jump out of the Pave Hawk, Rex following close behind."We'll keep the LZ secure. If you need any assistance, just call!" "Thanks!" You nod as you and Rex double time it to the town, where it would afford you better cover."I'll take point." Rex says, raising his carbine and moving forward.You follow close behind as you sneak your way through alleys and streets, trying to look for the building Janice described as the sound of AK fire continues to buzz in the background."Hold up." Rex stops you as he peeks around a corner. "Four Ivans up ahead.""Let me see." You take a peek around the corner yourself, and see that Rex was right. There were four Russian soldiers up ahead at the next intersection, obviously trying to figure out what was going on. Three of them had weapons ready and pointed while the fourth was visibly shouting in his radio in an attempt to get a response.>Engage them. You've got no time to waste.>Bypass them. No need to start a fight.>Other
>>28831331>Bypass them. No need to start a fight.Guy's on a radio, don't want our approach to be radioed to other Russian units.

>>28831509I think they're already aware of hostiles in the area.
>>28831331"Let's go around." You whisper. "Right. We'll take the alley, then." Rex nods.It takes a bit longer to negotiate the tight alleyways, but you manage to reach the other end of the block, and, shockingly enough, you come across a white, three story building. Some kind of hotel or something. Small wonders, huh?"Red, whatever you're doing, you better hurry." Janice says, concern in her voice. "Tarin says the Russians are starting to regroup. She's also sighted heavy armor and ZSUs.Okay, that was not good. You had to hurry.You carefully approach the door, and give it a loud knock."New York!" You hear a clearly American voice yell a challenge phrase.It takes a second for you to recall the answer before Rex does it for you."Yankees!""Okay, just a sec, I need to disarm the claymores!" The voice instead says.Wait. What."Okay, come in!"Both you and Rex open the door and swoop in. Inside, you see the four Green Berets you were searching for waiting inside, guns drawn. Oh, and there were claymores pointed towards the door as well. Lots of claymores."Don't worry, the cavalry has arrived" You say."Are you a witch?" One of the Berets asks."Um, yes?" You blink."Why are you wearing pants?"EVERY FUCKING TIME."Hahaha, maybe we should worry about other things, like not getting shot by Russians." You say in a light but slightly threatening tone. "What's the damage?""Mostly a bunch of scrapes and bruises." One of them says.That was a blatant lie. From just glancing at them. You can see they've taken their fair share of bullets and shrapnel, judging from all the bandages covering them. The fourth looked particularly bad, with his uniform soaked in blood. (cont)
>>28831757"Can you all move?" You ask as you bend down to check on the most wounded Beret."We wouldn't have called for help if we could." Their team leader sighs and steps forward. "You can just call me Tinman."Man, these SF guys and their nicknames. Then again, you were technically SF and had a nickname, too, so you guess you couldn't complain about that."You can just call me Red, then." You nod as you put a bit of healing magic into the downed man."We should hurry." Rex says as he glances out the window. "I don't think Tarin can keep them distracted forever."You run the scenarios through your head. On the one hand, you could try to guide these Berets out of the town on foot. It was stealthier that way. However, you'd have to expend energy that way to get them all into suitable condition to move on their own, and it'd be slow going. Then again, you could call the Pave Hawk to extract you directly from the building. You're sure that Bullseye would be able to fit the Pave Hawk either in the street or on the roof of the building. However, that might as well be screaming to the Russians where you were.>Escort the Berets out.>Call for extraction.>Other
>>28831769>Call for extraction.Pop smoke where our ride can land. Call in Ugly to keep the LZ clear or least the Russians heads down. Our two fair strike-witches run cover as well. Maybe a little closer to home (LZ).

>>28831769>Escort the Berets outThe ZSU's and heavy armor have already arrived if Tarin can see them. If we call in an evac, the ZSU's will just rush over to where they see the Pave Hawk going towards. She just needs to get in a last few shots then bug out; the Russians will be slowed down as they search the town grouped together with their heavy armor, and we'll be able to get to a safer LZ for the Pave Hawk to land at.
Rolled 19>>28831769>>Call for extraction.We need to mark the ZSU and armour for TV missile barrage.
>>28831769>Escort the Berets out.If there are ZSUs nearby, the last thing we want to do is land a helicopter on the building. If we can get rid of them, then it'd be fine
>>28831854We do need to get an idea about how far away the Russians are. Maybe drop some artillery or some of Ugly's Hellfires on their heads.
>>28831769>EscortIt sucks for Red, but the ZSUs are too scary to try for anything ballsy, imo.>Other: see if Tarin can mark those ZSUs for Ugly. Hopefully we can knock them out to help cover our escape if it becomes necessary.If that's not an option, I dunno

>>28831905>We do need to get an idea about how far away the Russians areDo you mean in terms of how many blocks away, or if they're at the town or not?Because we JUST passed a squad of Russians with a radio just a block away, and they WILL be able to guide the ZSU's right to the LZ if we call for an extraction.
>>28831843>Call for artillery support.I don't think we can call for artillery support. I think we're too far behind enemy lines.Otherwise the Green Berets would have been calling in fire missions already.

Rolled 17>>28831769>>Escort the Berets out.
>>28831769>>Escort the Berets out.Fuck playing with ZSUs. Lets just try skulking out of here.
The question I have is can a witch 'mark' an armor target? Also, I can't recall but are Hellfire laser-guided? Been long time since I looked stuff up...On phone right now otherwise I do it myself...Also how many ZSUs? I know it takes one to ruin a day but if there's two-three we should be able to knock them out with Ugly. Anymore than that would be... bad....
>>28831809Changing my vote to Escort. Re-reading, I think those ZSUs are closer than I realized.
>>28831769>Escort them outIf we call for EVAC the Russians will be on our ride fast than you can say "shit". Once we're out of the city limits, THEN call for EVAC.Or, have Tarin airlift the most badly wounded Beret to the waiting Pave Low if Red thinks he can make the trip.
>>28832016Yeah, Hellfires are laser-guided. Don't know if they'd work with the man-portable designators they use for laser-guided bombs, though. Plus, I doubt any of the witches has one on her, anyway
>>28831967Let's see, the ZSU's are where Tarin is currently creating a diversion, right?And we can hear the gunshots from that diversion where we are.How far can the gunshots from an AK-74 (I'm assuming these troops have been issued 74's, since it's 1989, and they're frontline Soviet troops and not WP satellite troops) be heard in an urban environment? Because I think the average is 4-5 blocks (I could be very wrong), and that's about where those ZSU's would be regrouping.Also, assuming these are ZSU-23's, considered so dangerous that in our timeline NATO had standing orders that if a pilot saw one, he was to abandon his mission in order to destroy it, I think we'd be well within range of their guns and anti-air missiles.
>>28832130>Because I think the average is 4-5 blocksHAHAHAHAHA no.try several kilometres
>>28832172What about in an urban and highly developed area such as this town that we're in?Shouldn't the buildings absorb and deflect the sound waves to reduce the range at which the shots can be heard?
>>28831769"Janice, we found the Berets and we need extraction." You call out on your radio. "Look for the purple smoke. Be warned, there's Russian infantry in the area.""Alright, I'm sending Bullseye over right now." Janice says. "Where would you like Ugly?">Have Ugly cover the LZ.>Send Ugly to assist Tarin and delay the reinforcements.>Other

>>28832193"Tarin spotted some ZSUs. I'm sure Ugly would have some fun popping them." You say."Alright, I'll send Ugly over to assist Tarin." Janice says. "I'll guide Bullseye in."Without missing a beat, you grab one of the smoke grenades you're carrying and toss it out the window. It was a risk, but you needed Bullseye to know where you were.About a minute later, you could see Bullseye approach in the Pave Hawk. You see tracers lance up from sporadic AK fire, but the Pave Hawk's onboard miniguns and Janice's rifle are enough to suppress or take out whatever infantry is foolish enough to reveal themselves, the high power bullets tearing apart both buildings and flesh.You watch as the Pave Hawk hovers over the street as it slowly sets down, the tips of its rotors missing the surrounding buildings by a handful of meters. You hold your breath as he sets down slowly and carefully. Meanwhile, Janice circles overhead looking for threats. In the distance, you can hear the shrieking of hellfire missiles as Ugly does his work. Hopefully they and Tarin are doing all right.With the Pave Hawk setting down, you and Rex start guiding the Berets to the bird. Two of them are able to make there unassisted, but you and Rex have to help carry the other two."Okay, we're loaded up!" You yell to Bullseye. "Let's get out of here!"Your pilot nods and powers up the engine. The Pave Haw slowly begins to gain altitude but you see something is wrong. Squinting, you see movement about a kilometer away and your eyes widen when you see a pair of BMPs appear. They must have flanked around the town. "BMPS THREE O' CLOCK!" You scream. "Bullseye go evasive!""Not enough altitude!" Bullseye yells back.(cont)
>>28832819You see one of the BMP's cannons beginning to ascend to track you. Thinking fast, you instinctively raise your shield. The cannon fires but the shell deflects off and soars into a random area of the town. You stumble for a bit as your body attempts to compensate for the sudden use of magic. The second BMP fires as well, but this time Bullseye is prepared. He makes a hard turn, twisting the Pave Hawk around to face the BMPs and narrow its target profile, and it works. The shell sails past a few meters to the right.Unfortunately, the combination of your weakened state and the sudden maneuver causes you to tumble out of the helo. You see Rex turn and try to dive to grab you but it's too late. You see Janice swoop in and try to grab your arm. You grimace as it feels like your arm is going to be pulled out of its socket, and the force proves to be too much. Janice can't get a grip on you and you slip out of her grasp. You can see the terrified look on her face as you fall, hitting the ground with a loud WHUMP.Fortunately, Janice's intervention at least slowed your fall a bit.You're still conscious and you're not hurting TOO much. You quickly scramble to your feet. Janice drops down to try and grab you but an angry stream of autocannon rounds forces her to break away. "Go!" You wave her off. "I can get clear!"Janice, seeing that you're still active, reluctantly nods and breaks off."Town's too hot, Red, you need to get out of there. Head west!" Janice says. "I'll have Tarin try to link up with you. Just get out!"You look around, trying to get your bearings. You manage to zero in on the rough direction of west. Those BMPs were going to be on top of you in seconds if you didn't move.>Sprint down the road. It's the straight shot out of town and the fastest route.>Take the alleys. The BMPs won't be able to follow you in there.>Other

>>28832832>OtherIf Ugly has whacked those ZSUs we could get it to provide cover fire and be a distraction for the BMPs, or atleast make them seek cover while we run to Tarin to get picked up

>>28832832>otherrun through the house the Berets were bunkered down in and grab a claymore. Go out the back. We can always use it to cover our retreat.
>>28832832Thinking fast, you duck into the nearest alleyways, weaving your way through buildings and alleys, trying your best to make your way west and out of the town. Behind you, you can hear the rumbling of BMP engines as they attempt to search for you. You can catch brief glimpses of them as they drive by, their main guns pointed skyward while the commanders keep an eye out for you with their pintle mounted MGs."Janice, can you get Ugly to assist me?" You hiss in your radio. "The town is crawling with Ivans!""Ugly is taking fire and needs to reposition." Janice says. "You need to hold out for a few more minutes!"Scowling, you quietly break into another building. It looks like a bar, judging from the interior. In the front, there is a large, open window with a direct view of the town's western exit. And.... shit. It looks like the Russians were thinking the same thing you were. The two BMPs had already parked themselves at the exit, and there was at least a squad of infantry milling about and setting up a barricade. That was not good."Ugly, this is Red, I really need some help down here." You hiss."Give us to two minutes.""Ugh." You sigh.Well, at least the Russians weren't clearing the buildings, which was a small blessing. They seemed content to just block the road.>Stay put and wait for Ugly to arrive.>Try to find an alternate exit.>Other

>>28832959You hunker down. No doubt the Russians thought Ugly was falling back for good, which was the whole point of the reposition. No doubt he was circling around to hit the Russians from another angle. For now though, you'd just have to wait.However, you then hear an odd sound. It didn't match the sound of any conventional vehicle, but you recognized it all the same.It was the hum of tank strikers.You then see a Russian tank witch. No... not just any witch, the same one that attacked Cap! You'd taken to calling her the Bitch, because well... that's what she was! Wondering just what the hell she was doing here, you duck into the shadows, keeping close to the back door in case you needed a quick escape.Then, an SUV pull up next to the Bitch, and a massive, heavily scarred Russian steps out. He's not wearing anything that signifies his rank, but the soldiers recognize his authority without a doubt and all immediately snap to attention. Some kind of officer maybe?The officer and the Bitch start talking to each other in Russian. You're not fluent, but you've taken some instruction to at least learn the basics. The Matrons always liked to encourage their students to be multilingual.<Find.... American....> The officer grumbles.The Bitch shakes her head.<...witch.><What?><smell.... magic...here.> The Bitch continues. <...close...><Hold this position then, Raikov.> The officer rumbles.Raikov... so that was her name...Raikov salutes."Red, this is Ugly, we've got a visual on those BMPs.

>>28833181It's sort of now that you're regretting not picking up one of those many claymores the Berets left behind. Then again, you weren't expecting to be stranded on the ground, or fleeing Russian forces. You quickly and quietly back out of the bar. "Negative, Ugly, we've got an enemy sparkle in the mix." You whisper. "I need to find an alternate exit.""Red, if you about two hundred meters north, you'll find an alternate exit." Tarin whispers in the radio. "Doesn't look like the Russians found it yet."If you can see it, can't you come down to pick me up?" You ask."Not if you're in an alley or building. Too tight. You need to be in an open area." Tarin hisses. "Plus, I can't risk getting too close to the Russians. They might hear my strikers.""Would they be able to hear it over the ruckus Ugly could cause?""Hmm...">Make your way to the alternate exit.>Have Ugly make a distraction so Tarin can extract you.>Other

You see any moving in on me you waste them, all right?""Copy that, Red."Taking a deep breath, you dash across the road to the next set of alleys. The town was now eerily silent now that all the shooting had stopped, but that still didn't stop your heart from pounding. Any moment, you might stumble across another Russian unit. Things were getting way too freaking tense here.However, you don't encounter anybody. Which was... odd, now that you think about it. You'd think the Russians would be more thorough than this.However... something still doesn't feel quite right. Following your instinct, you turn around......to see goddamn Raikov coming up right behind. How the hell did she know you were here? She's still about a hundred meters away, though. You turn back around and sprint for the exit, which seems to be a hole blown in the town's border wall. You clear the hole and find yourself back in the grassy field just outside of town."Ugly, Tarin, I got an enemy sparkle right behind me!" You squeal. You can hear the hum of her tank strikers getting closer. "I need support, please!""Hold on for a sec, I'm coming." Tarin says."You're danger close, Red, are you sure you want us to fire?"

I may as well as go back to lurking at this point like I always do or catching the thread in the archive. Participating for once and actually using the other >option and throwing out ideas that are never used or built upon is getting frustrating.
>>28833736Suggest better ideas.
>>28833712>Except externally.we've already been over this up in the thread.So yes.
>>28833736Just keep at it, Anon. Eventually one of 'em will be used if they're common sense ideas! Just keep at it!
>>28833736Not all ideas are created equal.Just keep throwing them out and if they're good, we'll use them.
>>28833744I do suggest ideas. Everyone else chooses Option 1 or Option 2 for instant gratification and never bothers to type out alternatives.. oh well. Back to Dark Souls.
>>28833765> never types out other ideas> folks choose to fallback from russians instead of fighting.Nice strawman.You know what, go back to your game.
>>28833765No, suggest ideas that are better than the ones you've been suggesting.Also, just because a writein doesn't get votes doesn't mean Merc won't try to work it in somehow, unless it gets a lot of 'no that's retarded don't do this' replies. This is true for all but the most rigid questrunners.
>>28833779hell even my Red Jelly suggestion got worked in
>>28833774>>28833779I was >>28833699 . It's a valid tactic for taking out the Witch. No response. So I guess everybody goes back to whatever they were doing and waits for Merc after picking Option 1 or 2. Hence, the frustration.

Rolled 15>>28833799a valid tactic for taking out a witch when you aren't within range of collateral damage, which we clearly are. Your idea works, but it would get us more hurt than not.
>>28833799frankly, don't worked up too much. If your idea sound, some anon will support it and Quest master will consider it.Like that Ice granfolk story, when we decide how we made the ring? One anon take third option - a good one - and everyone support it.
>>28833799Sometimes we don't respond because the suggestion isn't worth responding to.I mean, that suggestion is really no different than Option 1, since it's still having Ugly fire at Raikov while Tarin is still on her approach. Tarin is coming regardless of the two options, and Ugly used their Hellfires back on the distraction with Tarin; they may be out as far as we know.
>>28833799>Unless of course Merc has plotarmor on the witchshe is a named opposing character, of course she has plot armor
>>28833813>>28833824>>28833825>>28833826Now that's what we need. More people discussing the options instead of complaining about options. It works out better as we can hatch out a better plan instead of picking A or B.
Hey. Hey hey hey.Let's see if we can knock her out and drag her back to base. And loot her tank striker while we're at it. Red can cannibalise it extra battle armour!
>>28833643"Hold fire, Ugly." You say, expecting Tarin to swoop down to handle things.Except Raikov's familiar ears wriggle a bit and she aims her cannons skywards and fires. The shell sails off blindly into the air, and you see Tarin disengage her cloaking."Shit, she's good." Tarin breathes. The both of you pump magically enhanced gunfire into Raikov, whose shield sparks and flares as it takes the hits. "She's going reload soon. Get into cover." Tarin warns. Nodding, you slide into a small ditch while Tarin continues firing. Another shell goes sailing past her."Red, stand up now!" Tarin yells. "Arms out!"You don't even stop to question her. You stand up and hold your warms out. Tarin tosses her M14 aside and hooks her arms under yours. Her strikers scream as she pours energy into them to regain much needed speed and altitude. You crane your head back to see Raikov reload her cannon and trying to draw a bead on...Until she disappears underneath a cloud of smoke and dust as Ugly unloads his 30mm cannon into her."Ahahaha, that's right, bring down the motherfucking rain!" You laugh.Unfortunately, it didn't seem the barrage killed or visibly hurt Raikov, but it certainly forced her back. You see her shoot out of the cloud and flee to the relative safety of the town.Tank witch or not, they were no match against a Apache that had them square in its sights. It's then that the BMPs start to move, which was a bit odd, now that you think about it. Had Raikov been keeping them back the entire time? Just to fight you?"All right Ugly, let's go home." Tarin says."Just a second." Ugly says. "Got some unfinished business."(cont)
>>28833837We're not discussing the options, we're pointing out how anon is an idiot and their suggestions are bad and that's why they're ignored.
>>28833856You then hear the screech of missiles and rockets and being fired and the distant thumps of explosions, all underscored by the chatter of 30mm cannons. "Rockets and missiles expended." Ugly announces.Then its just the chatter of the 30mm cannon until that stops too."Cannon rounds expended."And finally, you hear a distantly audible popping sound."Sidearm ammunition expended. Returning to base."Man, Ugly must have REALLY wanted to start a fight.Ugly then pulls up alongside you. You see both crewmen give you the thumbs up before it heads off back to friendly lines. "Hey, uh, sorry about having to make you carry me back." You say apologetically to Tarin."It's nothing. I've done it tons of times before." Tarin shrugs, or at least does her best to since she's still carrying you. "Might want to clip on to me, though. My arms are getting a bit tired.""Oh, right!" You nod as you fumble the safety clip attached to Tarin's vest for just this very occasion. "And uh, sorry about your rifle.""Eh, it's just a gun. I can always get another one." Tarin does her best to shrug again."So... that witch..." You mumble."Pretty mean." Tarin says. "Very sharp, if she can guess where I am when cloaked. Possible she's got heightened senses.""Does the name 'Raikov' sound familiar to you?" You ask."Maybe...." Tarin frowns. "I might know some guys who do.""Alright..." You sigh. Seriously, what was up with that witch? It couldn't be coincidence that you ran into her again, right?Right?It's just then that you notice your hands haven't yet stopped shaking.>And that's it for tonight! Next thread will be this Saturday night, probably around 7-8pm PST. Don't miss it!
>>28833872>>28833869Huh. it survived. What madness is it?
>>28833888>"Sidearm ammunition expended. Returning to base."What part about fucking badass didn't you get?
>>28833861That's still discussion. You've made a point about why the option is terrible and needs to be revised or completely scrapped. Someone else makes a suggestion and people may run with it and improve upon it or tell that Anon his idea is retarded too. It's a better system than arbitrarily picking Option A or B as we can cherry pick exactly what we want our action to be and probably come out ahead in the long run. It also has the downside of completely screwing us if we choose wrongly.
>>28833904*Shrug*usually this will end with the helo get shot down when it trying to be cool. Glad it didn't happen.
>>28833869>"Rockets and missiles expended." Ugly announces.>"Cannon rounds expended.">distantly audible popping sound>"Sidearm ammunition expended. Returning to base."Best Apache crew.
>>28833910Why should respond and waste our time with obviously terrible suggestions? If your suggestion had any merit, an argument for discussion could be made. But when it's terrible, or in this case, no different than one of the already pre-prepared options, why should we even discuss it?If a suggestion has merit, we'll discuss. Otherwise, we'll ignore it. Or do you want to be called retarded that much?

>>28833958Pierce will be back either next thread or the thread after. Still want to do a few things with Red, though!
>>28833949Well, yeah. This is 4chan. I fully expect to be called everything under the Sun. The problem arises in a fully freeform quest when the other Anons do not call out the retarded suggestion is that the Quest Runner may use them if they do not receive any negative responses. And thus detrimentally effecting the quest in the long run. Building upon Option A or B isn't terrible. It's a base to work off of to expand the action we wish to take. It allows the participants to, once more, cherry pick what we want to do. No matter what, we were going to get stuck in a shootout. Having a little bit of control over what was to happen would have been stellar.
>>28834000good to hear, looking forward to it
>>28833869>Don't miss it!TRY AND STOP ME oh wait I've got literally nothing better to do.I don't really like POV switching in quests and this is no exception. Characters feel a bit generic, too. Otherwise, kind of okayish I guess.

>>28834023>Get over itBut I am over it. I'm simply making discussion now about freeform, choices, and quests in general. I am terribly sorry if I have irritated you in some way. This is the main reason I typically stick to lurking.>>28834031I did make suggestions, Anon. Now we are discussing the merits of questing in general. Perhaps I missed something or did not catch the subject change?

>>28834070You're not discussing, you're whining. Your single point of contention, that people aren't willing to vote for writeins, is simply wrong.People are just not willing to vote for BAD writeins, such as yours.
>>28834006well, keep in mind that it's still early in the quest and we haven't had much time to get to know them.Seems to be some unspoke '89 rule pertaining to 90% (semi pointless) action and 10% character development/etc.
>>28834102>People are just not willing to vote for BAD writeins, such as yours.I would go one step further, and say that we're not going to discuss retarded suggestions that have no support at all.We DO discuss the merits of one choice over another, but we don't waste our time before voting closes with suggestions that are obviously bad and that no one supports. Time is a precious commodity, and while our voting time may be longer than some other quests, we don't have hours to discuss every option that is suggested.
Would you all shut the fuck up and discuss something much more worthy of our efforts.How do we get Chris into Bitchtits pants
>>28834095>go awayAh, but I am always here, Anon. Lurking. I've been here for quite some time. And sure, I am most certainly an irritant, it's my main shtick. An irritant that bothers to break away from arbitrarily picking A or B and bothers to think out a plan of action. I will say that that, if not to be rude, is the better choice in the matter.>>28834102No. I am making discussion, Anon. You continue to respond to me, thus you are making discussion as well. And once more, discussion is the key to resolving issues.
>>28834153>into Bitchtits pantsThat's a weird way to spell "Pierce", anon.
>>28834125Tanks was much more even there.>>28834153Something about Bitchtits telling Red that getting attached to Pierce is a bad idea because men are evil. And Red counters by asking 'What alternatives are there? Other girls?'Cue awkward silence, Chris' well-timed entrance and SHOCKED REALISATIONS, followed by hilarious denials and Red's attempts to convince the two to act on their forbidden love.
>>28834153Not really seeing it. Even Chris knows that Bitchtits is a bitch, and yeah, she cares, but she's still not doing the right thing. Mixed units aren't the problem, soldiers getting emotionally invested in their comrades is. That's not something that she's going to be able to prevent, and maybe losing a Witch in an all-Witch squadron and having them put through the emotional wringer is what she needs.Oh, better yet, Chris gets shot down, and then see how she feels about losing her wingwoman. See if she handles it any better than Ice or a Witch from a mixed unit.
>>28834153>HowThat's easy. She doesn't wear pants to begin with. We're already partway there.
>>28834166Chris has a fine rack, though I don't think she'll ever be part of the main cast, but good thing for Janice.>>28834175Indeed even if it's a long shot.>>28834195Well Tanks is semi-decent in that regard, though it'd do better if it ran regularly, still I doubt any TW89 wound up like Maverick and Goose (basically extra despite being among the original ground)then again I think Ghost reads too many shounen manga (let's see a bunch of action. little plot, loads of characters, nigh-asexual MC)
>>28834220Personally I think Mav and Goose should have been a steelwing pair. Adding Katya and the Twins would then have made three jets and three witches, resulting in lots of different possible teamups.
>>28834220>nigh-asexual MCThat's hardly Ghost's fault, anon.
>>28834220Stop obsessing over Goose you pedophile
>>28834268Funny you mention those three as they're the most likely (if incidental) culprits in the marginalization of Mav and Goose, with the twins being guilty as they're a more one note versions of Slider.>>28834281Dunno, considering anon seems very fond of waifuing and Ghost seems fond of cockblocking that with suspiciously well timed Russian attacks.
>>28834295And thunderstorms. Can't forget thunderstorms. Was actually hoping to get some character development that session.
>>28834295>complains about waifus and waifuing>demands waifus get more attention>believes there is a conspiracy at work hereMy god, you are it, the Omega Neckbeard
>>28834295Which is exactly why changing Mav and Goose's roles would have prevented that marginalisation.>>28834311The thunderstorm WAS the character development. We avoided it by running away from it.>>28834322I'll be really surprised if there is anyone left who gives a single shit about anything you say.
>>28834342>I'll be really surprised if there is anyone left who gives a single shit about anything you say.Maybe not as much as you apparently do.
>>28834281seeing as he can't write feels or romance for shit, yeah it is Ghosts fault
>>28834322>show concern for characters practically made non-existant>Get accused of waifuing them.And you say I'm looking too much into things.>>28834342Not sure how it would have been changed, but I do insist the twins were mostly a needless addition as their role could have been better covered by Slider (trolling) or another male pilot (so Frank has some outside male perspective)
>>28834342Nah nah. We ran from the thunderstorm alright, but we had the french (I cannot think of her name to save my life at the moment) witch flying with us. And then Ghost drops a thunderstorm out of nowhere on us.
>>28834402The best therapy for liking a character nobody else gives a shit about is to write about them. Trust me.
>>28834460If they weren't part of the main group, it'd be easier to do (like with Bitchtits), but since they are, there's not much room.
>>28834641That's an excuse for quitters.
>>28834667As opposed to your stance of defending Ghost's neglect basically?
>>28834698what does this post even mean
post bitchtits plz
>>28835191hornet is packing for a flight, and besides, the thread is ded and on page 9
