At this late morning hour, the park was actually pretty busy, with lots of families milling about and playing the fields and playgrounds.Of course, you didn't come alone. Rochelle was among the crowd, keeping an eye on the ground level while Morgan was taking care of overwatch on a nearby rooftop. The rest of your idols were off taking care of various small jobs under Jenners' watch.(cont)
>>34352827You were here to meet Dr. Vahlen, one of the head researchers at Umbrella Corp., and one of your possible sources of help solving Belle's problem. However, while you knew how to get her attention convince her to help you, you still weren't quite sure of her loyalties, so you had to be careful how you handled this.As she had said, Dr. Vahlen is sitting at a bench under the park's central statue, showing some random police officer in a heroic pose. She's in casual clothes, and looks fairly relaxed."Rochelle, Morgan, do either of you see anything?""Nothing so far." Rochelle whispers. "K-Zwolf's sensors aren't picking up anything unusual either, but there's a lot of people.""I don't see anything on my scopes." Morgan adds. "Except lots and lots of people. Lots of trees, too, so getting a clean shot is going to be tricky."Well, so far so good.>Approach Vahlen>Hold off for a bit. Make absolutely sure nothing is wrong.>Other
>>34352837>Approach VahlenMight as well do this. If something is going to happen, it's going to happen and we have overwatch.
Alright guys, make sure we get a DNA sample before we're done.
>>34352951Nah, just hack her old facebook account and confirm a facial match with her old photos. It's easier that way.
OKAY, SO LAST TIME ON CYBERPUNK IDOLS QUESTTHE PRODUCER GOT BACK FROM BOINKING JENNER IN SPACEIT WAS PROBABLY ASTRONOMICAL AND I AM NOT APOLOGIZING FOR HUMORANYWAY, HE GETS BACK AND FINDS OUT THAT ALL HIS BIDDIES WANNA TALK TO HIM AND ALSO THERE WAS AN EXPLOSIONWOW I WONDER HOW THAT HAPPENEDIT'S A FUCKIN' MYSTERYSO AFTER CHECKING OUT THE BOMB CRATER HE DECIDED TO GO TALK TO THE SHRINK ABOUT THE MESSAGE HER OLD GIRLFRIEND SENT HERAND THE BASIC GIST OF THE MESSAGE WAS AS FOLLOWS: "YO, WHAT UP, L-DOG? IT'S YOUR BOY B-FIDDY, IN THE HIZZOUSE. SO I WANTS TO AX YOU A FAVOR. SO IT TURNS OUT BEIN' IMMORTAL AIN'T AS TIGHT AS IT SOUNDS AND EXISTENCE IS PAIN. WOULD YOU MIND ICIN' ME FORREAL? THANKS, BOO."AND THE PRODUCER WAS LIKE "WHAAAAT" AND LILLITH WAS LIKE "THAT'S WHAT I SAID" AND THE PRODUCER SAID "SO WHATCHA GONNA DO" AND THEN LILLITH SAID "WELL I GUESS I GOTTA ICE HER" AND THEN THE PRODUCER SAID "WHATEVER YOU SAY"SO THEN ON ANOTHER TOPIC, HE TALKED TO HIS CYBORG TEENAGE COMMANDING OFFICER AND TALKED ABOUT EXPLOSIONS AND RUSSIAN PEOPLE AND TACTICS AND YAAAWNAND THEN THE PRODUCER TALKED TO SPARKY AND ASKED HER ABOUT THE EXPLOSION AND SHE'S ACTUALLY A PRETTY GOOD LIAR BECAUSE SHE GOT OUT OF THAT SCOTT FREESO HE DECIDED TO TAIL HER BECAUSE STALKING TEENAGE GIRLS IS ALWAYS FUN, BUT CHICKENED OUT WHEN SHE MET UP WITH COLE. WUSSAND THEN HE WENT SHOPPING AND BOUGHT A PLANE. NO BIG DEALTHEN, NOT SATISFIED WITH JUST JENNER, HE TALKED TO VAHLEN AND ARRANGE A HOOK-UPANYWAY, THERE WAS VERY LITTLE FUCKING OR REFERENCE TO FUCKING IN THIS EPISODE, SO YELLINGBIRD'S RATING IS "EH/10"MAYBE THIS TIME SOMEBODY WILL FUCK SOMEBODY ELSEOR MAYBE NOTIT'S A MYSTERY, BUT WE SHOULDN'T ASK THE PRODUCER TO SOLVE IT BECAUSE HE IS A TERRIBLE DETECTIVE
>>34353094>A PLANEBut we bought a chopper. An attack one at that.
>>34353166SAME FUCKING THING
>>34352837Well, you suppose if nothing seemed wrong, you might as well get this whole thing over with. You casually approach Vahlen and sit next to her on the bench, coughing lightly to get her attention."Dr. Vahlen." "Producer." She nods at you and smiles. "Isn't this park wonderful? Lots of people, lots of noise. Makes it very hard for people to follow or eavesdrop on you.">Yeah, it is pretty.>You're being followed?>Let's get straight to business.>Other
>>34353203>Other"Should we be careful about what we say?"
>>34353203>>Yeah, it is pretty.
>>34353203>Yeah, it is pretty.
>>34353203>Let's get straight to business.We know she's being followed.
>>34353203>Let's get straight to business.Less bullshit.
>>34353203>Yeah, it is pretty.>Let's get straight to business.>>34353188pic related.
>>34353203>>OtherLet's take a walk, shall we? It'll look less suspicious than if we were simply sitting on a bench.
>>34353203 >>Yeah, it is pretty.
>>34353166I thought it was a VTOL--y'know, like an Osprey except not as prone to crashing.
>>34353203>Yeah, it is pretty.meetings like these have a certain flow lets not rush it, since she may feel she might have the hand in any trade of infomation.
>>34353203>>Yeah, it is pretty.>OtherWanna take a walk, get some read for the fish and ducks in the pond?
>>34353287>HORNET ASSAULT VTOL - 12000/800 Upkeep>A small and fast attack VTOL mainly designed for recon and close air support. Is armed with two vulcan cannons and two rocket pods. Has no transport capacity, but can seat up to four passengers if the weapons are removed.VTOL is catch all term for anything that can take off vertical. That does include helicopters. Based on we're told of this 'VTOL' it sounds more like an MH/AH-6 Little bird.
>>34353409More likely its an osprey type aircraft/
>>34353447No offense intended, but ospreys are not exactly 'small'
>>34353203"Yeah, it is pretty." You say. "Not a lot of times where you can just sit back and relax.""Refreshing, isn't it?" Vahlen chuckles. "While Umbrella is a wonderful place to work, some of the policies there can be very... restricting. I suppose when you suffer one too many containment breaches upper management starts getting nervous.""Containment breaches?" You raise an eyebrow."Oh, it happens quite often, but it's all all very hush hush. You know, money and lawyers and all that." Vahlen chuckles. "Not something one normally talks about in the open.">Talk to her about Cole.>Ask her about Belle.>Other
>>34353447If it was osprey like aircraft it would have transport capacity and weapons at the same time.And as >>34353463 they're not small.
>>34353468>OtherAsk her what she wants in life? To help people with the use of Genemods? To continue, or even surpass her father's work?
>>34353468>Ask her about Belle.We can use Cole stuff as bait. For now go along this line.
>>34353468>Talk to her about Cole.Might as well get it out of the way.
>>34353468>Ask her about Belle.respond with some >Talk to her about Cole.if she talks to us.
>>34353463As in the ability to redirect the thrust. You know, those rotating nacelles.Thats the first thing that comes to might.>>34353468>Ask her about Belle.
>>34353468>Talk to her about Cole"So, I think your dad made a clone of you that also has lightning powers. So that's, you know, cool."
>>34353468>>Ask her about Belle.
>>34353468>Ask her about Belle.
>>34353468>Talk to her about Cole.
>>34353468>>Talk to her about Cole.>>Ask her about Belle.Give and take.
>>34353468>Ask her about Belle.See how far we can get this line. If we hit a wall we can use stuff we know about Cole to get pass it.
Anons, Do Not Trust Tech Firms!From thread 6:>Tensions between Cyberdyne and Umbrella Corp are at an all time high with Umbrella's announcement that it has found a cost-effective method to produce biomods (biological modifications), which will directly compete with Cyberdyne's domination of cybernetic augmentations.Tech firms are the most likely suspect in the death of Mr. Vahlen and the destruction of his research, as they are a rivals in the debate between synthetic & organic mods. They most likely hired Combat Idols years ago instead of Mercs due to the rules of engagement between companies. Those that took the mission are probably enjoying their retirement unless news of Cole’s survival pulls the Veteran Combat Idols back into action to tie up one last loose end.The question is: How/Why did Cole survive an encounter with Veteran Combat Idols? Was killing a child going too far for them? Did the employer want her? Did the Idols pity her and tried to take her in as one of their own?
>>34353681Rorschach, I think you need to step back from this investigation. You start asking too many questions, you're gonna get "disappeared" by Corporate Security.
>>34353468Taking her cue, you decide to start getting the subject at hand."What do you know about Belle Summerfield?" You ask."Ah, our company idol. A very interesting specimen. Her genetics proved surprisingly compatible with our T-Virus prototype.""T-Virus?" You raise an eyebrow."A custom designer Virus, similar to I-Virus. However, the T-Virus was specifically designed to enhance cell regeneration. Thanks to Belle, we were able to perfect the T-Virus formula, and we've incorporated a diluted version of it into all Umbrella care products.""Among other things." You grunt, remembering those Umbrella manufactured "healing sprays" you were issued in the field. "Among other things." Vahlen nods."But isn't human experimentation illegal? Don't you have any moral quandaries about that?" You ask."In this case, Belle volunteered for the testing, or so I was told. I'm not personally in charge of the T-Virus project or her testing." Vahlen sighs. "And you must remember, Delta City is owned by the Corps, not the government. Laws are much more loosely defined.""So I've seen." You grunt."Anyways, why all the interest in her, all of a sudden?" Vahlen raises an eyebrow.>No reason.>Somebody asked me to kill her.>Somebody asked me to rescue her.>Other
>>34353916>Somebody asked me to rescue her. Failing that, to kill her.
>>34353916>>OtherOur shrink is a good friend of hers... and she got a letter asking for us to kill her. She wants to die to get out and if possible I'd rather try to see if she could instead be rescued instead.
>>34353958Giving out too much info man...
>>34353916This sounds good:>>34353955
>>34353916>Other"She wants out. She wants out of the idol business, and out of life in general. And Umbrella won't let her. What do you think about that?"
>>34353916>>OtherCall it food for thought, Doctor.
So what do we do with the map that Belle gave us when we're done with it? I mean, yes, we can give it to their rivals, but Vahlen could get caught in the potential crossfire.
>>34354046Keep it safe for a rainy day.
>>34354046Obviously we have to get Vahlen out too somehow then. Maybe use Cole to get her to come over?
>>34354046That, OR her funding gets docked for better security, or they fire her if they think she's responsible.
>>34354046I think Umbrella is a threat in general, and it's better to burn them down, at least for the sake of Cole. We can extract Dr. Vahlen and her work, but it might be best to give Cyberdyne the golden opportunity with the idol's fingerprints to burn Umbrella.
>>34353916wait....>Thanks to Belle, we were able to perfect the T-Virus formula, and we've incorporated a diluted version of it into all Umbrella care products.">perfect the T-Virus formula,>we've incorporated a diluted version of it into all Umbrella care products.Oh.Shit.Probably the vast majority of the human population has been exposed to the T-Virus. This can go so wrong so quickly.
>>34353975Letting her know that belle desires suicide is crucial rather than implying something want to get her out or research or to kill her/.
>>34354107Don't worry, if that happens, we activate skynet and plugin all the Cyberdyne cyborgs. Skynet will save us.
>>34354107"Can" go wrong? I think you mean "will go wrong, and in the most catastrophic manner possible".
>>34354095If we're worried about Cole we really should start by looking into her legal status. Could Umbrella claim her as property? Could Vahlen claim her as a daughter?Could we legally adopt her to prevent both of those?
>>34354150Phressh, does that even matter. They'll easily extract Cole over our dead bodies and then have then lawyers blocking any investigation.They only understand one thing, power, and the best way to protect Cole is to get another asshole Corp on our side and kill and burn anybody else.
>>34354150When it’s confirmed that Vahlen’s a mom,will she be as receptive to the news as Alice from MGHQ? This is kind of crucial to ownership. Imagine if Alice called Carol a freak of nature.
>>34354095This is a cutthroat business, you know. You tear down one corp, another will take its place overnight. Umbrella has some dirt--that is true. But the corp that inherits its throne could be far, far worse, with an even more blatant disregard for morals. On top of that, would you really want Cyberdyne to run unopposed in body mods?
>>34354197Not a mom, thats basically her little sister.I really really hope she takes a shine to her.
>>34354197The thing with Alice... It started off as more of joke to her than anything. She more or grew into that role.
>>34354225>more or lesswordswordswords
>>34354206Um, you can't get any worse a Corp than Umbrella. Burn that place down.
>>34354206Let's stop one apocalypse at a time. It'll be easier once we're not worried that Umbrella black VTOLs will swoop down and kill us all, except Cole.
>>34354274Verily, let's burn Umbrella to the ground, get Vahlen on our side, then deal with the people who wanted Cole dead.
>>34354150Well she is a clone of Vahlen, so I would assume that, Vahlen being the bearer of Cole's genes, the good doctor would be the legal guardian of Cole unless Vahlen explicitly relinquishes such status.
>>34353916"Both Belle and some interested parties have communicated to me her willingness to leave the idol business... one way or another." You say cryptically, trying to get your point across without outright saying it. "A person in your position, you'd be able to help, right?""Hm, possibly." Vahlen gives a slight smile. "What would you like to know?""Could Belle survive without her treatments?" You ask."Hmmmm, Belle is a unique case because her body has developed a dependency on the T-Virus, since we've been giving her concentrated doses. If she were to stop taking those doses, I'd give her two months before her body begins experiencing catastrophic cellular breakdown with another month of life depending on level of medical care, and yes, it's just as horrifying as it sounds.""Can it be prevented?""Hmmmm, I suppose it's possible to gradually wean her off her dependency, similar to how drug addicts are treated. But that would require months of therapy in a proper medical facility, not to mention access to pure T-Virus stocks.""So it can be done?""Not without significant cost." Vahlen shrugs. "If you can get her away from her overseers, I suppose I can set her up such a facility, but you'd have to do something in return.""And that would be?" You brace yourself."You have two alternatives." Vahlen raises two fingers. "One. You tell me everything you know about Cole, and allow me to do a full medical checkup on her. Or two, you sneak into one of Umbrella's backup data facilities and pull all the data relating to my father's death.">No deal.>We'll take option one.>We'll take option two.>I've got a sniper. You're in no position to give demands.>Other
>>34354324Um...now that you think about it... Why did Mr. Vahlen choose to clone her instead of just getting a kid out of the Tombs (shouldn't the latter be cheaper)?It was like if he wanted a family or something...
>>34354363Info yes but no check up
>>34354363>>We'll take option one.Might as well spill the beans.
>>34354363>We'll take option two.This.
>>34354363>>We'll take option one.Like a full physical, right? Blood draws and urinalysis and all that jazz?
>>34354363>I've got a sniper. You're in no position to give demands.You want to play with a corp, you gotta be willing to fight dirty.
>>34354363>We'll take option two.This will give us far more info on Umbrella. Plus we can snoop around on those severs to for... Umm other items of interest.
>>34354363>We'll take option one.It is her father's legacy and all
>>34354363>>We'll take option one.
>>34354324>We'll take option one.But she has to share her findings with us and the checkup must be done in an isolated lab away from umbrella's surveillance.
>>34354195Oh, I know they probably won't care. But odds are they'd at least try it first before sending in the black ops. If we can pre-empt any legal grounds for Umbrella trying to take Cole from us (even if we only suspect they'll try at this point) then it's better we do so before they recognise her as a valuable target.>>34354324Mmh, but we should check. I don't think we even know who her legal guardian is right now, since Delta City pretends the tombs don't exist. It might be she doesn't have one until someone claims it, or she might have been deliberately abandoned so Umbrella/Vahlen technically already relinquished any legal guardianship.It's better we take care of things now before finding out by someone coming to collect on our idol.
>>34354363>We'll take option two.We can get extra intel and win over Vahlen, it's a win/win!
>>34354363>I've got a sniper. You're in no position to give demands.Just wondering what she has as plan to counter.But this is my pick;>We'll take option two.
>>34354363>We'll take option one.We were gonna do one anyway. But maybe we should delay this until we do the mission for THI and the Capt. This is, how should we say, a memorandum of understanding.>We'll take option two.Also, if you pay us to do this, we can negotiate.
>>34354363>"We'll ask Cole if she's comfortable with the checkup, if she's not, we'll go for the data."
>>34354363>We'll take option one.>OtherWe'll take option one for the time being. Full disclosure, and various dna and blood and fluid samples. I think you will find the results quite interesting. We can hammer out the details later.
>>34354363>We'll take option one.>We'll take option two.>>OtherActually why not both.We can do two for vahlen's help and we can choose to do one for access to the gene mods when they're done.
>>34354363>>We'll take option two.
>>34354363>We'll take option two.Like hell we're gonna give her full access to Cole on just her word alone.
>>34354363>>We'll take option one.on the condition cole agrees
>>34354363>We'll take option two.>all these people jumping at option one Really people? Think about it. If Umbrella finds out about Cole and Vahlen isn't on our side 100% this shit is going to go sides so fast it's not even funny.
>>34354363>We'll take option two.
>>34354363>have cole whether or not she will do it if not option 2Goddamn I hate shadow runs
>>34354439>>34354363I am also in support of this
You know if we wanted to be a major dick, we can always give Cole's DNA to Umbrella and say it was from Vahlen's sample.
>>34354499That probably won't work, they definately know if Vahlen was doing any genemods.
>>34354486Shadowruns are fine if you're speced for them. We'll do fine...
>>34354363>>We'll take option two.Keeping our daughterus safe from a megacorp comes first on our priority list.
>>34354535ultimately though, we need to speak with cole to tell her the truth.
>>34354480Based on our timing, we should have burned Umbrella by then. Also, this is only a promise, which can be broken later.
Okay, I'm stopping voting here so I can actually count them.
>>34354549Yeah, we're gonna have to tell Cole before telling Vahlen.
>>34354549You know we only have assumptions in this, right? We have no hard evidence in this. Yes good guess but that isn't enough to start 'telling' anything really.
>>34354549Oh I completely agree. IF Cole was cool with it and aware of the risks involved then we can consider letting Vahlen give her a check up.
>>34354363>We'll take option two.We can grab some data to sell to cyberdyne.Should finish toha job and get the suits first though.
>>34354567I don't think we ever asked her how she ended up in the tombs. Before we tell her about Vahlen's request, we should sit down with her sometime, ask if she remembers her family and such. And again, look into where she is legally so we know who can claim legal guardianship.
>>34354584We have a orgy of circumstantial evidence, this is very likely the truth.Find Dr. Vahlen's yearbook, and run a facial recognition program.
>>34354621>circumstantial That being the key word here. I prefer having something far more solid to tell her than that. And getting our hands on this intel would be just that.
>>34354616I guess some anons headcanoned that she was captured and being transported. She activated her powers and sent it crashing into the Tombs.But that is a good question.
So what won? We should at least discuss this with cole
>>34354363Well, you didn't really want to give out more information about Cole than you wanted to. Who knows that Vahlen could do with it."We'll take option two." You say. "We get Belle and the data, and you help cure her?""Exactly. We both get what we want." Vahlen smiles. "In fact, coincidentally, Belle's villa just so happens to also be holding a backup server, so we can kill two birds with one stone.""Then can you help us get in?" You ask."Of course." Vahlen nods. "But there's only so much I can do before I start drawing attention. What sort of support you want is going to be up to you.">Detailed blueprints of the villa.>Watertight access to the villa. >Details on the security systems and forces guarding the villa.
>>34354668>Details on the security systems and forces guarding the villa.
>>34354668>>Detailed blueprints of the villa.>>Details on the security systems and forces guarding the villa.
>>34354535We have a way to an easy out with this medical checkup and interview. Yes, you're keeping Cole safe by not putting her out there, but you're also stunting her growth, not to mention putting out other girls in undue harm. Cole is deprived of getting to know who is essentially her older sister and we're sending out girls against megacorp security--not some fucking gangbangers cooped up on the shipping docks.
>>34354668>Detailed blueprints of the villa.We can get (or force) everything else. But having a 100% layout of the villa would make planning easier
>>34354668>>Details on the security systems and forces guarding the villa.>>34354651As another anon said, we can always try to get a loose strand of hair right now for DNA comparison.

>>34354725Which can be gained through observing them. Getting building plans that our up-to-date will be far harder.
>>34354668>>Details on the security systems and forces guarding the villa.All we need is a foot in the door, and we can get the job done from there.
>>34354668>>Details on the security systems and forces guarding the villa.>Detailed blueprints of the villa.
>>34354668>Detailed blueprints of the villa.We can plan from there.
>>34354668"Details on the security systems and forces would be helpful." You say."All right. I'll make the proper inquiries." Vahlen nods and stands up from her seat. "Now, unless there's anything else, I'll be taking my leave...">Do you have anything else to say?
>>34354840"If you want to know about Cole, maybe you should take the time to ask her yourself"
>>34354840"If you are so interested in Cole, you should come by sometime, get to know her."
>>34354840Nope. Move on.
>>34354840I like the sound of this:>>34354866
>>34354840A compromise of these:>>34354866>>34354895And get a loose strand of hair.
>>34354866>>34354895Longs this is nice and all. It should wait until after we get that intel and see where she'll land with regards to all of this.Otherwise;>>34354840Nothing beyond wishing luck and hoping we get all the answers we're looking for.
>>34354866This is nice.Call cole over.
>>34354937Agreed. Leave the meet and greet stuff until later.
>>34354937It's one thing to think of a person as a test subject. It's another to interact with her as a person.
>>34354971That's fine. But doing it now or even before the intel. I rather not.
>>34354937I agree with waiting. Let her leave and see if she gets the intel, and in the mean time we can talk to Cole ourselves.
>>34354988Well it's an open invitation. Before, after, I don't really care.
>>34355009One we can give after the intel has been gone through and is to our liking.
>>34355026Well, I just thinking. If we can develop the relationship between Cole and Dr. Valhen early, this can payoff big time later.But it's just a thought.
>>34354988>>34355009Doing it before should be better.If there is a personal connection between the two, valhen's desire to make use of cole to cole's detriment should be reduced.
>>34354866This sounds nice.>>34354943And we should tack that on if she's nearby.
>>34354840All right, so it seems like we've got a writein that needs to be confirmed!>Let Vahlen meet Cole now.>Let Vahlen meet Cole later.>Let Vahlen leave.
>>34355043The problem is what happen to her father. If it's Umbrella doing then I have no problems pushing such an angle. But if it's not then I got issues because of the connections she'll still have with them. Wait and see.
>>34355089>>Let Vahlen meet Cole later.
>>34355089>Let Vahlen leave.If the later option is for way later after ops then I guess I'll through in for that.
>>34355089>>Let Vahlen meet Cole now.PLOT

>>34355089>>Let Vahlen meet Cole now.If its for a short while and we're still here to make sure she doesnt get snatched away.
>>34355089>>Let Vahlen meet Cole later.As a incentive to play nice
>>34355089>>Let Vahlen meet Cole now.For crissakes, /tg/, stop coddling the poor girl! You're worse than some child pageant mothers!
>>34355089>Let Vahlen meet Cole later.Christ sakes people...
>>34355156>>34355192This is not the medical exam she is asking for, but it'll definitely humanize who she is talking about.

Stopping voting so I can count.
>>34355089"You know, Vahlen, if you want to know about Cole so much, maybe you should take the time to ask her yourself." You say."Really?" Vahlen blinks in surprise. "But the deal-""Hey, I want to know about Cole's origins just as much as you do." You sigh. "Plus it doesn't really feel right keeping her away from you like this, if you two really are related.""I.... I don't know what to say.""A 'thank you' would be enough." You chuckle."You... you called me over?" Cole asks, stepping out from where she was keeping an eye on you."Hello, Cole. I'm Dr. Vahlen. I'm- er..." Vahlen hesitates.>Tell Cole Vahlen might be her sister.>Tell Cole Vahlen is just a fan.>Other

>>34355361>>34355390This is fine
>>34355361>>Tell Cole Vahlen is just a fan.Nothing is confirmed. Why in gods name would we say anything else.
>>34355495Well, devil's advocate, it would make acting against Cole's best interest very awkward.
>>34355361"She's a big fan of yours." You finish Vahlen's sentence, spare her from any potential awkwardness. "She just really wanted to see you in person.""Oh, okay." Cole shrugged."You're supposed to have a better attitude when around the strangers." You sigh."Hey, you said having a lousy attitude was what makes me so popular in the first place!" Cole grunts.You little argument is broken up by Vahlen's laughter. She laughs uncontrollably for a few seconds until she realizes she's drawing some attention from passersby and she quickly regains her composure."Cole, I just one little question." Vahlen says. "Do you remember your childhood? Where you came from? Any family?""Not really..." Cole frowns. "I don't really like thinking about that sort of stuff, and I don't really remember anyways. I had a pretty shitty childhood, though. I want to get as far from that as possible.""Ah, I see." Vahlen sighs. "Well, until we meet again, then."Vahlen gives you both a wistful, almost sad smile before spinning on her heel and leaving."Man, she was kinda weird." Cole frowns. "I mean, weirder than my usual fans.""You don't know the half of it." You shake your head."Producer, you want us to follow her?" Rochelle asks.>Yeah, see where she goes.>Negative.

>>34355670I think she was referring mostly to Tombs life since no one can really remember very early childhood memories, unless we somehow tap into her subconscious.
>>34355627"Negative. Pull back and regroup." You sigh. "We've got what we wanted. Let's go home."You all pile into the SUV, and Stig starts the long drive back to the office. Your girls engage in some small talk, mostly about weird stuff they saw while on watch, and how Cole kept suspiciously eying a passing ice cream vendor cart.Soon enough, you finally return to the office.

>>34355627Talk to Jenner
>>34355871You head over to your now useful landing pad, where your brand spanking new Hornet Assault VTOL is sitting, ready and waiting to go. Man, it's been a while since you've seen these things in action, and they were always really dependable for recon, CAS, and transport in a pinch."Oh, hello Producer!" NEMO chimes as her miniature hologram materializes, "sitting" on the glass of the cockpit. "I was just familiarizing myself with the control systems of this craft!""So you can pilot this thing autonomously?" You ask."Of course! I was designed to be able to operate any Neucom vehicle, after all!" NEMO says happily. "If you want, I can take you for a test flight?"Huh, it was tempting. It's been a LOOOONG time since you rode in one of these things...>Sure, why not.>Maybe some other time.>Other

>>34356650"Sure, why not." You shrug. "I'm also programmed with an extensive training program." NEMO continues. "If you an idol you want to receive flight training, I would be happy to oblige!">Sure, let's train (specify)>Nah, I'll just ride on my own.>Other
>>34356850>Nah, I'll just ride on my own.But thank you, I'll keep that in mind for later.

>>34356850>If you an idol >>34356850>>34356868This. For now that's not terribly important.
>>34356850>>Sure, let's train (Rochelle)
>>34356850>>Sure, let's train (specify)Flight school from an AI? Sure, why not! Let's try the basics first. I mean, what are the chances of accidentally arming the rocket pods and putting a hole through the studio hangar wall?
>>34356850>>Nah, I'll just ride on my own.The girls are best employed as ground forces, and I don't think NEMOs going anywhere anytime soon. And if she does we have the Stig.
>>34356891Eh. The hell is that quoted part there for...
>>34356891Actually I'm wondering, if we have an AI piloting our attack VTOL, then we can have more boots on the ground.
>>34356850>Sure, let's train (specify)Rochelle, it's free training, so why the hell not?
>>34356850>>Sure, let's train (Rochelle)She's obsessed with that dogfighting game of hers, I'm sure she'd jump at the chance.

>>34356850>Sure, let's train (Rochelle)
Arent we focusing too much of our training on a single idol?The ultimate combat idol becomes the driver. Ideally we should be training someone else to handle it. Someone not a team leader.
>>34356850>Nah, I'll just ride on my own.This is a test run.
>>34356850>>Sure, let's train (Melissa)I normally would jump at the chance for Rochelle but given we trained her with the captain, I feel it will be unfair for the other idols
>>34356850>Sure, let's train Julie, Rochelle, and Melissa.>OtherNote to self, see what falynn can do to upgrade the chopper.
>>34356980Good luck getting anyone to listen. And really we don't need to be training anyone. That's what Stig and this AI is for.
>>34357030Actually we should though.Say an op goes ploin shaped and the idols need to jack a ride to get out.
>>34356850>>Nah, I'll just ride on my own
Qctually, considering that this is an AI, and this isnt exactly captain's special program, we couls actually train most of the combat idols to be flight trained.
I don't really understand why people are turning down free training for an idol.It's situational at best, but there's no actual downside to it. It's far more efficient to get training done right now than to waste another update in a weekly series to request training.
>Rochelle do everythingHow about we get someone else to learn to fly. Rochelle is the team leader as well as the strongest combatant and has enough responsibility already without also being the getaway driver.Train Melissa or something damn
>>34356850>bring Melissa and Rochelle

>>34356850>Sure, let's train Julie, Rochelle, and Melissa.

>>34356850>Nah, I'll just ride on my own.We gotta get Stig to train her as well, and give her DOUBLE TRAINING.
>>34356850>Sure, let's train (specify)Melissa
>>34356850>Sorry about the delay, there!"Nah, I think I'll just ride alone." You say."Well, that's fine with me!" NEMO says happily and the cockpit slides open. "Hop on in!"You jump into the cockpit and strap yourself in."Have you ever flown a Hornet, before?" "Not really. I've just ridden on one, mostly." You shrug. "Hah, well, let's see if my diagnostics are correct!" NEMO says as the Hornet's engines power up. The craft slowly lifts itself up into the air and it shoots off rather quickly."Oops, sorry if I startled you there!" NEMO says apologetically. "Um... it's all right." You mumble.The Hornet then begins to perform some basic maneuvers, mostly just circling around the office at varying altitudes. The craft ducks and weaves as NEMO puts it through its paces. However, you do have to admit that the view is pretty great. "All right, everything is green and A-okay!" NEMO says cheerfully. "How did you like the ride?""It was a bit bumpy at first." You say. "but otherwise not bad. Better than Stig, that's for sure.""Well, you shouldn't get too far ahead yourself. We still have to land!" NEMO points out."Oh... right." You gulp."And here we go!"The Hornet then drops precipitously as its speeds for the landing pad."Um, NEMO?"The Hornet still isn't slowing down."NEMO!" You cry.Finally, at what seems like the last second, the Hornet flares and its engines fire up, slowing its descent to safer speeds as it settles on the pad."What was that all about?!" You gasp as you clamber out of the cockpit."Oh, I thought it would be a funny joke! Stig said you'd like it!" NEMO says, a bit confused.STIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG!"Anyways, thanks for the ride." You sigh. "And no more 'jokes', okay?""As you wish!"Ugh.>Go talk to Lillith.>Start the Captain's mission.>Punch Stig.>Other

>>34358191On the off chance it was a one off. And not giving it to the idol whos already trained fully for ground combat.
>>34358071>Go talk to Lillith>>Start the Captain's mission.
>>34358226What?>>34358239A one off? Also then give it to an idol who can benefit from this. I think Melissa will do since she needs a hobby after this.

>>34358286That's a good thing for Melissa, but perhaps somehow improving the conditions of the Tombs could be another suggestion. I'm pretty sure there are still roving bands of orphans down there.
>>34358071>>Go talk to Lillith.>>Punch Stig.Walk and talk.
>>34358421Improving the Tombs is almost impossible at this point in time. Giving something that Melissa can do other then revenge might be something we can.Lilith says her type often have trouble finding something to do after getting revenge maybe something like this can help.Besides the only other hobby she has so far is eating junk food like Cole.>>34358420I rather it be the Producer though who gets the lewds.
>>34358500>I rather it be the Producer though who gets the lewds.He already has Jenner. No need to get greedy.
>>34358538>>34358500Well if you wanna get freaky: Nemo and Stig. Nemo's controlling the Cap'n's body the whole time.
>>34358538Ushimiya is a person we rarely talk to. Though I kind of want the Lewdbro approach when he did the SW lewds One of JennerOne of LilithOne of the Captain
>>34358071The first thing you do is go down to the workshop, where Stig is tuning to the SUV. With little warning, you just stomp up and punch him in the gut, causing your driver to bend over in pain."You have a terrible sense of humor, you know that?" You grunt.You then turn and leave the workshop, leaving a stunned Stig and a very confused Falynn.Your next stop brings you to Lillith's office. As always, she's at her desk, tapping away at her computer. Thankfully, you notice a lot less empty cola cans scattered on her desk. "Hm, what is it, Producer?" She asks."Lillith, I think I might have found a way to get Bell out of this alive." You say with a grin."R-really?!" Lillith blinks. "But how...?""I made a deal with an Umbrella researcher I know." You say. "We take care of a favor for her, and she's willing to hide and care for Belle once we get her out.""I... just..." Lillith is speechless. "It almost sounds too good to be true.""Well, we're going to have to work our ASSES off to pull it off." You sigh. "But yeah, there's some hope there.""Yeah..." Lillith sighs and leans back in her chair. "Well, the only thing that might screw this up is if Belle still wants to go through the original plan.""Why would she?" You blink."Because she's extremely stubborn." Lillith sighs."Believe me, I think I've got some experience dealing with stubborn women." You laugh."Maybe you do." Lillith sighs. "But... if it comes down to it. If she wants to end right there... would you do it?">I'll respect her wishes.>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.>Other
>>34358618>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.
>>34358618>I'll respect her wishes.

>>34358618>I'll respect her wishes.Look it's her life. I'm you are going to choose for her, you'll be like Umbrella. She is an adult. She can make her own decisions.

>>34358618>I'll respect her wishes.I've heard about people who went through chemo who would rather die than go again, frankly, worse comes to worse I'd rather go with what she wants than drag her kicking and screaming.
>>34358618>I'll respect her wishes.We'll see. If people around her(Big P and Lillith) can't convince her. Well. It is what it is.

>>34358618>I'll respect her wishes.Hope for the best. Prepare for the worst.
>>34358618>>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.I'm not sure what to think. Maybe the sheer amount and purity of Genemod injections are messing with her mind.
>>34358618>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.You can't exactly undo suicide, so I'm not letting her commit to that so rashly.
>>34358618>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.You always save as many people as you can, so if we can save her then we will.
>>34358741Yes they do, but if someone wants to check out so damn bad, they had ought to do it themselves.

>>34358618 >>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.
>>34358618>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.If it's at all possible to save her then we're not gonna let her die on our watch.
>>34358618>I'll respect her wishes.If at the end of the day and everything is said and done she still wants to check out. So be it.
>>34358618>>I'll respect her wishes.>>34358807It should be noted that she already /tried/ that numbnuts.
>>34358618>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not.We're not in the business of assisted suicide, if we're saving her then we're REALLY saving her.
>>34358618>She's getting saved whether she likes it or not
>>34358618>I'll respect her wishes.You can't save those that don't want to save themselves.
>>34358807>>34358771She can't do it herself, that's the point of this mission.This is basically a mercy killing. I'm not saying we shouldn't try to save her, but if push comes to shove, we have to respect the wishes of that person and do what we have to do.As for the girls, if we haven't told them already, we should have a little meet up and explain that, this mission may require killing a friendly/mercy killing, if we are unable to save her. Because we only have one shot at this. And if it comes to it, and things go south, someone has to make the call.
>>34358921Even if the person is just stubborn and wants the plan to go as she wants?
>>34358921Ah crap. That's going to be a fun meeting. But yes, we totally have to do it.
>>34358921>She can't do it herself, that's the point of this mission.I love how everyone forgets this fact. And really I agree with everything else your post.
>>34358921>>34358741And we have no possible way for that to be gotten around right? Like the goddamn treatment the doc is offer, right. No possible fucking way for her to fucking take care of her own goddamn fate. Fuck both of you dunderheaded cock sockets.
>>34358952Then we shoot her kneecaps off and ask again.
I would like to point out this is a being with vast regenerative abilities.Whats to say riddling her with bullets will shut it down?What if it regenerates into some kind of brain dead zombie monster?
>>34358952Considering she doesn't think there is any other way and may have just found that other way? Lets see if reason and logic works here. If it doesn't then. Fuck it's her life.
>>34358994That's what C4 is for, silly.
>>34358997>and we may>>34358994Apply more dakka.
Merc can we have final destination
>>34358921You know, if it actually comes to that, we ought to consider using the whole mind override function of the Harbinger to do the deed ourselves. Yes its not a pretty option but if the alternative is having one of our idols preform an assisted suicide we should at least consider the option.
>>34359116That just brings more issues than I would care for.
>>34359116It's a shame we can't just upload her into a clone or something.
>>34358972I'm not worried about the things we do after if we do get her outta there, it's the actual act of getting her out. I'm not saying that we don't have a way to help her after we get her out. If we get her out that is. The argument here is that I am not willing to risk the live of our own girls to save the life of someone who doesn't want to be saved in the first place. We got to think of our girls as well. We are going to try and save her, but we will uphold our deal and respect her wishes if the time comes. >>34358953The meeting is a necessity. Don't want to have to tell them right then and there during the mission without warning. >>34359116Exactly, we don't like it, in fact no one does, but if we have to do it, we should be prepared to do so.
>>34359130Having any of our idols shoot an unarmed civilian, even if she wants it, is more issues than we need already. Relieving them from any responsibility might actually help here.
Wait a fucking minute. If we kill her (in private) does that incur the wrath of the other idol companies?
>>34359184One. It was still done by their hands whether or not they were in control. Two. The impact of such thing might very well magnified on them because of it. Three. It would freak the other girls out doing such a thing.If you want not to kill her. The gag and bag her out of the house and we put a hole in her head ourselves not jumping into someone to do it.
>>34358618"I'll respect her wishes." You sigh. "But really, I hope it's not going to come to that.""Me too." Lillith sighs. "I'm really sorry that you're getting tangled in all of this.""No, no, it's fine." You say. "I can't just stand by and let a girl be exploited. Especially if she's a friend of one of my staff.""Ha, you almost sounded a little cool there." Lillith chuckled. "Well, I try." You grin as you turn to leave. "Anyways, you know me, always got something to do. I'll see you later."You leave Lillith's office and make your way to the Danger Room, where the Captain is. Of course, she's busy training, doing her marksmanship this time."So, I notice you got a new gunship." She says simply."Yeah, we do." You nod. "Interested?""More of a soldier than a pilot." Captain shrugs. "Anyways, what are you going to use it for this mission? Fire support or transport?"You pause to think about it. The Hornet can certainly bring a LOT of firepower, but it could also provide a huge tactical advantage by being able to carry your idols pretty much anywhere...>Use the Hornet as a gunship.>Use the Hornet as a transport.>Other

>>34359473To be fair, are we expecting Morgan to see heavy combat?
>>34359473>http://pastebin.com/D08i2GKcSparky maybe.For Morgan, maybe next time when we remember but honestly I just want to start the op and help Melissa
>>34359488Seeing how she's a sniper, only if things go horribly wrong.
>>34359488Morgans suppose to be sniping from the catwalk.Expect heavy fire to dislodge her once they see her,
>>34359488Maybe we can give her some strength enhancing muscle suit with OctoCamo for the endgame instead of Power Armour.
>>34359523>catwalk.No. She's outside the warehouse giving overwatch.
>>34359488>>34359517>>34359523And theres no cover on the catwalk to hunker behind.
>>34359546Again she's not a part of the attack. She' in overwatch. Christ. People remember the fucking plans you make.
>>34359312"We'll use it as a gunship. Load up the weapons and just annihilate everything. We're going in loud anyways, right?""Right." The Captain nods. "Just remember what this mission is about. We're here to recover cargo, not to burn everything to the ground.""I got it. I'm not THAT trigger happy, you know.""No, but more than a few of your girls are." The Captain points out."...true.""I'm particularly worried about Melissa." The Captain frowns. "She's got a personal stake in this, so... yeah. You know how that stuff turns out.">I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid.>I'll go talk to her.>Other
>>34359312>>Use the Hornet as a gunship.To ambush these guys obviously, we'll transport our idols by ground, same as always.
>>34359598>>I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid.>She promised me she won't and I trust her.
>>34359598>I'll go talk to her.>>34359531I guess we'll be using combined arms in terms of armour variety.
>>34359598>I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid. But all the same I'll go have one last talk with her.
>>34359598>I'll go talk to her.go hang out with her before the mission and check her mental state
>>34359598>I'll go talk to her.
>>34359598>>I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid.We made a promise to each other.
>>34359629This please. We talked to Julie. We will talk to Melissa.
>>34359598>>I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid.I do believe we've already had this talk with her. And we can contact her at any time with Harbinger (or even use it to force her to stop if she forces our hand...)
>>34359598>>I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid.But>>I'll go talk to her.
>>34359598Changing my vote from this to>>34359629
>>34359598>I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid.
Rather for morgan, we need to make sure her scope is networked to the other girl's vision.That way she can fire AP bullets to hit targets inside the warehouse.
>>34359598>I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid.If worst comes to worst, we can stop her with the Harbinger.
>>34359777I dunno if that would work man, the technical logistics involved seem to be far to complex to make this a realistic option this close to the fight. But if its at all possible hell yeah do it. Or even better, network with the gunship to rain precision AP rounds through the warehouse roof.
>>34359598"I trust Melissa not to do anything stupid, but I'll go talk to her anyways." You say."I think that's a good idea. Make sure we're all on the same page, here." The Captain nods.You head up the dorms, this time, where you manage to catch Melissa in the lounge with Niko and Julie, watching random TV shows."Melissa, can I have a word with you?""Ooooooh, looks like Mel is in trouble!" Niko coos. "The only one who'll be in in trouble is you if you don't shut it." Melissa grunts."Whoa, just joking!" Niko laughs."Ugh." Melissa rolls her eyes and walks up to you. "What is it, Producer?""Well, we're going to be hitting those Russian mercs soon, and I just wanted to make sure that we're all on the same page, here." You say."I remember the promise I made." Melissa sighs. "I'll make sure to stay on mission, not revenge.""Good. I just wanted to see if you remembered." You nod. "But that still doesn't mean I won't crush that bastard's skull if I get the chance." Melissa says, tightening her augmetic hand into a fist."I wouldn't have it any other way." You laugh.Suddenly, your comm buzzes as the Captain calls you."My contacts just came in. They're going to be moving soon. We'll have to go tonight.""All right." You nod and switch to your girls' comm frequencies. "Girls, get geared up and ready. We're moving out tonight." >And that's it for tonight! Sorry we're ending a little earlier than usual, but it seemed like a natural endpoint. We'll be getting to the fighting proper next week! Don't forget PJ Witches on Sunday and Gundam Build Fighters on Friday!
>>34359777>>34359892Doesn't the VTOL have rockets? We can use a couple of them to blow a hole in a wall.
>>34359903Thanks for the thread Merc. See you next time.
>>34359903Thanks for running Merc, can't wait for the next one.
>>34359916Yea but once the firefight starts, we can expect targets to be block by walls.If she can get their locations through the walls, that experimental sniper rifle can blow through the walls and her targets.
>>34359916Wouldn't that risk collapsing the roof instead of just vaporizing it?
>>34359903Ivan soon comrades!
>>34359916In any case, thats the main plan.I hope to ventilate the office area first since the mercs are likely to be there.Might catch one or two of them or at least damage a few before we have to engage them in idol to merc combat.
>>34359980Perhaps if it was a load-bearing wall then we'd have trouble. But if it isn't, I guess a single rocket strike on the wall should suffice for Morgan.Either way, we're probably going to unload our Vulcan's into the rooftop.
>>34359903I'm a little disappointed we ended early especially with the big delay in the middle of it to be perfectly honest. But I want to know what would have happened if we let one of the idols tried to learn to pilot?
>>34360007For the surviving Mercs, I guess Morgan and Cole could spend their time EMPing the shit out of the power armoured guys.
>>34360058Not sure if the emp bullets will have a good shot through the warehouse to hit the mercs.Might have to stick with the anti-armour rounds for morgan.
>>34360072Not to mention some controlled explosives from Sparky.
Kind of wished we had more dialogue with Melissa like we had with Julie the other time.
Hmmm."Teleconference" *SOLD*A Hyperion prototype sniper rifle, it is configured to fire a wide variety of specialized shells in addition to standard bullets. It can fire EMP rounds, acid rounds, high explosive rounds, and marker rounds.No anti-armor rounds.We might have a problem with penetration.
>>34359903Thanks for the thread Merc but is it just me or was it a bit slow today?
>>34360164Buncha people have been going back to school and/or university over the past couple weeks. Activity should be slowing down all over the site, actually, even if it's just a smidge.
>>34360394Oh yeah, it is even I'm going back in a few days.It's times like these that I'm glad cyberidols is weekly but on the other hand still sad it is.
>>34360160We might be able to scourge up for the barret.We have 3.4k left and assuming a 50% sellback price, we can get another 750 from our 3 ballastics vest for 4k to get the AM rifle.
