You sigh as you enter the office. Jenner, as usual, is there at her desk, waiting for your arrival."Producer." She nods to you, completely impassive. When she was in business mode, she stuck to it. "There's quite a bit to take care of today. Toha Heavy Industries is happy that their cargo has been returned, and want to discuss sponsorship arrangements. The Captain also mentioned that she was leaving now that her job was done. Not sure if she left already or not. Also, a package from Dr. Vahlen arrived this morning.""Ah, I see." You nod.>Tease Jenner.>Talk to THI>Talk to the Captain.>Open Vahlen's package.>Check on your idols.>Other

>>34686177>Tease Jenner.So are they still not going to talk about how they fucked all night?
>>34686590I thought that was Yellingbird's job.
I'm dissapointed nobody mentioned the Decu pic of Melissa and Producer.We never did have a canon image of Producer
>>34686177"Oh come on, you're not the least bit curious on why I'm receiving mysterious mail out of the blue from another attractive young lady?" You grin."It's not my job to ask." Jenner sighs, but you can see her eyebrow twitch very subtly. "Perhaps you could share the contents of it with me later.""Ah, but what if's very... questionable material?" You say, leaning in with the most charming smile you can manage."W-well I've seen all sorts of things." Jenner stammers, looking away. "There's not a lot that can surprise me.""Really now?" You then lean forward and kiss her on the forehead."W-what was that for!?" Jenner blinks."Surprised you, didn't I?" You laugh."Producer..." Jenner, unable to muster up any anger at you, just sighs and shakes her head.>Talk to THI>Talk to the Captain.>Open Vahlen's package.>Check on your idols.>Other

>>34686682That is the image I used for producer.Good thing about that is, having Rin and maybe Morgan based pictures with the Producer won't be so hard to fine
>>34686682God damn it, producer, use some TD!
>>34686651>>Talk to the Captain.
>>34686651You decide to intercept the Captain before she leaves. She always had that habit of just leaving without telling anybody. Of course, she never did that unless she was sure her presence was no longer required, but for some reason she just never really grasped the fact that saying your farewells was a courtesy most people appreciated.Predicting what she'd do, you head down to the garage, and there you see the Captain, in civilian clothes and with a simple travel bag. Traveling light was one of the first lessons she taught, after all."Still leaving without saying a goodbye?" You sigh."I was going to leave a note." The Captain says a bit defensively. "Anyways, the job's done. I have other missions to do, places to go.""I understand." You nod. "I guess Stig is dropping you off somewhere?""Yes, to the airport." The Captain nods. "Why are you frowning like that?""Oh..." You blink. "Um, let's just say that the last time I was at the airport, the stay wasn't very pleasant. Just watch yourself out there.""I always do." The Captain nods.>Say anything to her before she leaves?
>>34687037"Can I get your number or something? I might have another job later on that would be easier if you were on board and vice versa of course."
>>34687037come back and visit us
>>34687037> Just wish her good luck, and thank her for the help.
>>34687037It was just like old times.
>>34687037Ask her to come to a show sometime.Maybe we'll see her at the final show or something.
Hypothetical Question here:So if P-san had to Direct Control our Combat Idols, who do you think he would have an easier or harder time adapting to? I’d say that it’s harder to adapt to Julie and Cole while it would be easier to adapt to Rochelle and Morgan.
>>34687037>Tell her to not be a stranger and if she ever needs help we'll help her out."Salute her I guess
Acquire means of contact.
>>34687037Do you want to say something to the girls?
>>34687037>Ask her to personally say good bye to the girls. I know at least Rochelle, Morgan, and Julie will want to say good bye
>>34687221I bet it's Julie because of her legendary bust size that future 4chan is debating whether or not are genemodded.
>>34687410KKJ is 100% au naturale
>>34687037"You're always welcome back here anytime. Besides, Maybe I can see if i can open up a lost for a new Idol if you want to change of job for awhile."
>>34687221For Cole, there are 2 possibilities: P-san is unable to control her powers, causing it to go off 24/7; or unable to activate her powers in the first place because even if Cole tried to tell him what to do, it would be like describing color to a blind person. But if P-san learns how to use the powers, I think he can access a branch of the skill tree that could be exclusive to him or accessed by Cole through training (i.e. Chain Lightning, Thunderstomp, etc.)
>>34687037"You won't at least leave a number or some other way to contact you? Just going to disappear into the blue again?" You ask."I think things are better that way." The Captain says with a slight smile. "You've got a nice thing going here, Producer. I already got you tangled with some nasty people. You don't need someone like me messing it all up.">I see. That's a shame, then.>You're practically family to us now.>Other
>>34687536>>You're practically family to us now.We'll always consider you an Aunt. Not sure if that's the best thing to say....
>>34687536>You're practically family to us now.Besides, half of this buisiness is about tangling with nasty people.
>>34687536>You're practically family to us now.Fluster her up!
>>34687536>You're practically family to us now.>OtherAgian."You're always welcome back here. If you ever want to try to be an Idol for awhile, I'll see to it we'll get you a slot."
>>34687536>>OtherThe Bear got a good look at some of our girls. Make sure you can at least keep tabs on us - we'd like your help if he comes this way.
>>34687536>You're practically family to us now.
>>34687536>>You're practically family to us now.
>>34687536""Come on... Do it. Stop being a jerk."
>>34687536>>I see. That's a shame, then.
>>34687536"Come on, Captain. You're practically family to use now." You smile. "Don't you miss it? Being part of a tight knit, well run unit? I sure as hell miss those days when it was just us and the guys, roving around whatever warzone the brass dropped us in. I can't imagine lone wolfing it all this time can be good for you at all."The Captain just stands there, her back turned, silent and impassive."At the very least, our door's always open to you. You should really visit, or come to one of our shows. The girls have really taken a liking to you, despite the whole 'nearly PTing them to death' thing."Suddenly, a cell phone. An old one, comes flying your way and you instinctively catch it."That's a burn phone. There's only one number programmed into it. You have an emergency or something like that, use it." She says. "And thanks, I'll keep what you said in mind."With that, the Captain steps in the SUV and Stig guns the engine. The SUV, and the Captain, then make their exit.However, you don't have much time to reflect on the moment, as you hear an angry shriek from behind."PRODUCEEEEEEEER!" You hear Falynn yell as she runs at you. "One mission! ONE MISSION! And you already RUINED a perfectly good Hornet!"Uh oh.>FLEE>Stand your ground.>Other
>>34687885>Stand your ground.We are a man. Oh God, I'm scared!

>>34688171>>34688172I should catch up on this quest
So why do clones often get into a fight to the death with their originals? I mean, is that seriously the only way to settle their differences?
>>34688655Note to P-san: Keep Cole away from Vahlen when they find out.
>>34688156Falynn is so fast that you don't even have time to react. You feel an explosion of pain in your shin as your engineer smacks it with a wrench and causing you to fall on your back. Funnily enough, your brain was already starting to process events as they were happening, and pointing out that Falynn was pretty good, aiming for your legs, which were not augmented and also knocked you off your balance.You prepare to get back up and put a stop to Falynn's little rampage when suddenly your arms seize up and lock in place. "Funny thing, augmetics." Falynn grunts as she pockets a little remote control. "Not a lot of people know that as long as you have the right codes, you can forcefully disconnect the neural connections remotely. Very useful when you need to apply emergency repairs and don't have time to pop the limb off."You make a mental note to pay more attention to what Falynn is doing when she maintains your augmetics. "Falynn, I think you're overreacting here-""OVERREACTING!?" Falynn plants a greasy boot on your chest. "Overreacting is when I get pissy when somebody scratches that fresh coat of paint I put on the SUV! IN THIS CASE MY ANGER IS COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED!"You just stay silent. You learned that was usually the best course of action when girls got like this.(cont)
>>34688655Much like the Highlander, there can only be one.
>>34688678"Do you know how unbelievably FRAGILE VTOLs are? Hundreds and thousands of very delicate moving parts, the disruption of even just ONE can cause the whole damn thing to crash! Add BULLETS to the mix, and you know what happens?""...what?" You squeak."Then people just go, 'oh, it's nothing, we can just patch the holes', well FUCK THEM, this is isn't one of those flying rocks the Russians have the gall to call aircraft! You put a bullet in something like the Hornet, and somebody's gotta take apart the ENTIRE DAMN THING to make sure every single one of those THOUSANDS of moving parts is still working! And you know how many bullets the poor Hornet caught?""...no.""THIRTY TWO! GAAAAAH!" Falynn flails her arms wildly in the air in incoherent rage and her boot stomps on your chest again, forcing the air out of your lungs. "SO WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT ALL THIS!?" She roars.>I'm sorry and I'll be more careful next time!>YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE!>...do you always wear green ones...?>Other

>>34688700>YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE!Crawl! Crawl for your life!
>>34688676Yeah, and the fight would be pretty one-sided.
>>34688891She might leave us there on the floor for a while but no way she would actually leave because of this.
>>34688891oh come on, she won't leave. we have a lot of toys she can play with. Also we pay her more than anyone else will
>>34688891Yes, a joke sequence is clearly going to lead to a member of the team leaving. Because Merc's just the type of QM to pull that kind of stunt.
>>34688700>I'm sorry and I'll be more careful next time!Lets not sexually harass someone who is RAGING MAD

>>34688700>...do you always wear green ones...?Before>YOU'LL NEVER TAKE ME ALIVE!
So do we have P-sans age? I normally think of him being in his early 30s and looking a bit like Adam Jensen.
>>34688700In hindsight, there probably a lot better ways to handle this situation. But... you weren't quite thinking clearly, as there was something that was distracting you greatly, and you really couldn't avert your eyes from it, as much as you really wanted to."...do you always wear green ones?" You ask.You can see Falynn's face light up like a warning light as she realizes the gravity of the words you just uttered. It actually made it sort of worth it for the pain you'd inevitably be feeling soon."P-P-Producer you PERVERT!" She wails.>roll 1d20

Falynn gives a yelp as Rochelle's moment carries both of them into a pile of conveniently placed empty cardboard boxes."Run, sir!" Rochelle yells. "I can handle this wrench monkey!"You decide now is the time to make your escape, scrambling to your feet. Rochelle at this point has managed to pin Falynn, sitting on her back as the engineer's was forced to lie on the ground face down. Rochelle then reaches into Falynn's pocket and hits a button on her remote before crushing it in her fist. You suddenly get feeling back in you arms.Wait, how did she know about? She couldn't have unless..."Hey!" Falynn grunts as she uses her engineer strength to literally toss Rochelle off herself. Considering the sort of work she did, you guess you shouldn't be surprised that Falynn would be a lot physically stronger than she appeared.

>>34689854If she gets angsty don't let her read/watch the comedy/tragedy ballet/play Coppelia.
So....what kind of panties do our girls wear?I imagine that Morgan wears boyshorts.
>>34690411Rin wears tatical panitesCole doesn't wear any
>>34690439Cole probably wears the girly ones.Inside she just wants to be the pampered little girl.
>>34690411Rochelle clearly goes commando for obvious reasons
>>34690411Cole probably has something with a bunny on it, she's a little girl like that.
>>34689699You decide to go talk to THI first about what they were willing to provide you. You head over to your office and activate your comms, punching in Ochai's contact number. "Ochai speaking.""Ochai, this is the Producer." You say. "Did you receive our present?""Indeed we did!" The heavily augmented executive says happily, or at least as happily as his artificial voicebox can manage. "As agreed, THI will now officially sponsor your company! You'll receive no less than $3000 on top of whatever you earn on each job, and you will have access to our suite of specialized equipment!""That's great." You smile."As a show of goodwill, we are willing to grant you an item from our armory." Ochai explains. "Please choose wisely."You then receive a small data packet and open the display.(cont)

>>34690471ENFORCER COMBAT BIKE: Built as a competitor to the Lawmaster series of law enforcement motorcycles, the Enforcer is all about agility and grace rather than brawn. While the Lawmaster does boast higher top speed and accelration, the Enforcer can manage turns and fit in spaces the Lawmaster can only dream of. The Enforcer is also well armored, has an advanced semi-autonomous navigation system, grappling lines that give a greater freedom of movement, as well as special storage pockets for personal weapons.ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKIN: Unlike traditional power armors, the ECS uses synthetic muscle instead of electric motors or hydraulics, with a thin layer of armor plating over the exterior. While it lacks the raw strength or protection that heavier power armors provide, it has an unmatched range of movement and agility. The armor itself is a special polymer capable of resisting most types of small arms.HIGGS LASER RIFLE: Utilizing the power of THI's secret Higgs particle technology, the Higgs Laser Rifle is capable of firing beams of focused energy that deals grievous damage to both synthetic and organic material. However, the rifle is extremely power intensive, and can only use special THI brand Higgs batteries.And of course, like most of THI's products, these things were completely modular and could be further modified with THI brand upgrade packs.Huh, interesting stuff. Now you just had to figure out what to choose.>ENFORCER COMBAT BIKE>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKIN>HIGGS LASER RIFLE

>>34690485>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINMorgan will have a field day with this thing.
>>34690485>>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINNice to have light armour as well as combined arms.Also, having a skin-tight bodysuit is fitting in a Cyberpunk setting.
>>34690485>>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKIN
>>34690485>>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINThis looks perfect for cole. Who wont need to worry about shorting it out if she uses her powers.
>>34690485>>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINOh hell yea
>>34690485>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINand then throw ceramic plates on top of it held together with kevlar weave
>>34690512Probably better for Cole and Melissa.
>>34690485>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINTime for Nanosuit
>>34690526I guess it can be for Cole or Morgan as they both like to be mobile. Not to mention you can wear something over it as a disguise (i.e. a trenchcoat)
>>34690485>>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINMelissa will get it, right?
>>34690526It sounds like it's artificial muscles. And if muscles have an electric current passed through them they stiffen up. Imagine what kinds of horror would happen when exterior muscles start crushing you at every point of your body.So yeah, give it to a melee character like Julie.
>>34690485>>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINWould really like something with a little bit more protection, but the extra mobility will definitely be a help.
>>34690559>Cole initially didn't like Carapace Armor due to hindering her movement.>Now she doesn't like how this skinsuit reveals her figure and curves.

Hey merc, if cole uses the suit, will it short out if she uses her powers?
>>34690512>>34690526>>34690542>>34690559>>34690580>>34690590Yeah, supporting Melissa because she is a monster in CQC. A fast moving literal machine of death.
>>34690626>I agree, Melissa is a CQB beast anyways, it is best to support this.
>>34690580Melissa or Julie would probably benefit the most--the armor would allow both a massive speed advantage--good for flanking, closing in to dish out damage, and a bit of tanking.The laser rifle sounds nice, but the lack of cross-compatibility with other power packs is a major detractor.
>>34690626I am unsure if using cybernetics under a synthetic muscle suit will rupture it.Some of her abilities can fuck up her augs by using a very powerful punch and what not. The suit might burst if its not designed for something like that.
>>34690673That's how they always get ya."This product is only compatible with our program and products."
>>34690725Perhaps they can "cut off" where the aug starts and where the suit ends, so it's flush.
>>34690725>>34690746>Perhaps they can "cut off" where the aug starts and where the suit ends, so it's flush.Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too.
>>34690725I'd imagine a level of incompatibility exists. Perhaps a compromise can be reached--we remove the parts of the suit that cover her augmented parts, allowing for the best bridge between protection and comfort.
>>34690485While i get that the skin is awesome and all, can we also buy the combat bike? Do we get a discount?Because a combat bike is too cool to pass up.
>>34690673>>34690725Wait, I just realize. With this suit, Melissa could effectively dual wield machine guns, Gunzerking.
>>34690731Fucking razor-and-blades economics. Why does everything have to be goddamn proprietary in Cyberpunk?
>>34690805If we want to do that we should get her a proper powered armour suit.
>>34690833She can already do that with one arm. Now we should be able to do it with 2.
>>34690833Nah man, she has a special perk that allows her to use heavy weapons one handed remember?
>>34690829Because Apple started making its own power cords that aren't compatible with everyone else's laptops, then made cords that weren't compatible with their previous generations, and people keep trying to imitate Apple when it comes to entertainment tech. Given all this and the fact that a single precedent can set the trend for generations to come, it's amazing we don't have apples that vaporize on contact with the wrong brand of peanut butter.
>>34690485>>ENFORCER COMBAT BIKE
>>34690485>HIGGS LASER RIFLE
>>34690851>>34690855The suit is geared towards boosting aglity rather than strength. It took a full mechanical arm for melissa to be able to wield a gun onehandedly and the lmg is almost a hravy weapon as merc said.So i dont thing a syn muscle suit will provide enough strength for melissa to dual wield lmgs. Instead, we may need the full strength of a conventional powered armour suit for her normal arm to use a lmg singlehandedly.
>>34690855I just got an idea: give Melissa an LMG. That armor will allow her to be quick and lay down fire while closing in to fuck shit up. Basically, have her adopt the fighting style of those Juggernauts from Modern Warfare 2.
>>34690953M2 Browning with a adjustable hydraulic bayonet sword? Me likey.
>>34690485>ELECTROFISHER COMBAT SKINFor Melissa
>>34690953Or maybe a shotgun with electric shells? Makes up for lack of armor penetration with electricity.
>>34690953A juggernaut jumping and moving like the wind while laying down heavy fire? I can dig it.
>>34690987You'd think M2 Brownings would be easier to procure in the future.
>>34691035>>34690987Why would you want an M2 when we've already got pintle mounted AN/M3's and M3 Dragon's and the like?
>>34691027With the armors combination of speed, performance, and protection, she would be more suited for flanking or assault maneuvers. Or she can quickly reach a good vantage point and lay down new covering fire to support the advance?
>>34691059I don't think her augs combined with the suit could handle the rate of fire....
>>34691059Because John Moses Browning is your glorious Mormon Gunsmith and you shall adore him.
>>34690987Or we could always go for a replica MG42...
>>34691059I thought the Dragon was a shitty ATGM. Or am I getting the numbers confused?
>>34691092Whatever situation you want anon, I think we can all agree that Mellisa is the best recipient of this armor.
>>34691145True. If we give it to Morgan, some of it's advantages wouldn't be used.
>>34691115You don't even know what you're talking about do you?
>>34691201Nah, he's just from /k/. In other words yes.
>>34691059Because other girls can carry a M3, while M2 is a much heavier in both weight and caliber. We'll need heavy heavy weapons to take down the bear.We should ask THI if they are familiar with the bear's armor?
>>34691092So...give her a shotgun instead of an LMG? One ounce slugs can and will ruin anyone's day, armor or not.If we want to go FULL CUHRAZEE, though, I suggest we get her pic related eventually.
>>34691222>and caliber...Would you retards actually go and read up on what the M3 Dragon is?Its a fucking vastly improved M2 for gods sake.
>Whoops, sorry for the late post!>>34690485"I'll get the Electrofisher Combat Skin." You say."Excellent choice! We were just starting field trials and marketing for that one!" Ochai says happily. "The product will be delivered to your office within the day, and we thank you for choosing Toha Heavy Industries!"With that, the communication is cut, and you're left to wonder who best would be able to utilize something like that. >Pick an idol to get the ECS.>Leave that decision for later.>Other

>>34691312Really dude? Its a leap to think Cole's powers WONT short out the suit, and even then Mellisa's combat style is vastly better suited to the its qualities.
Melissa receiving items.Them idols getting jelly.
>>34691394what are the bust size rankings again. I just want to know how Melissa looks like in skin tight power armor.
>>34691284Merc. Is the ECS compatible with melissa's aug or cole's powers?How will it compare with standard powered armour in compatibility.
As long as we have a combined arms take on 'powered armour and suits' to cover each of their short comings, I'm not complaining>>34691410She's right after Julie. 2nd place.
>>34691428Ok, thanks.them Tomb girls be packing
>>34691359Synthetic muscle fibre instead of electric motors and hydralics. The latter will zhort out and the jury is still out on the former.Also combat style? As far as we've been using her, shes been at the back supporting with heavy firepower. If we follow that, it would be better to kit her out for full tank with normal powered armour.

Augment her already horrendously powerful strength even more, and lessen her reliance on her augmetics, too.

How long has it been since we did a performance? I'm thinking that everything from the Idol Killer to now has been thrown into a short period of time.

So of all the things Mr. Vahlen could've injected into Cole, he went for electrokinesis. That seems rather odd as I would've expected something simpler like enhanced physical abilities. So why electricity, of all things?
>>34692257If I were to be honest, he was probably throwing science at the wall and see what sticks. Probably tried the experimentation of different mods on 10,000 subjects, and this was the one that worked. Or the only one that survived the explosion.Also, did anyone else think Dr. Vahlen laughed because Cole acted exactly like her when she was her age?
>>34692257I'd say that it was an act of desperation.
>>34692285So Dr. Vahlen pulled a Cave Johnson?
>>34692313I was thinking Thomas Edison, but that works too.
>>34692285If he did inject her at the last minute before he died, perhaps that would be the reason he didn't program a killswitch in her. He wouldn't need one on a young girl without powers..
>>34692342The real question is why a genetic copy of his daughter? Experimentation demands repeatability, so why her as a template? Maybe it's like Dr. Mann from Y the Last Man. Dr. Mann felt like a failure of a parent to his daughter, so he kept cloning her to attempt to get it right this time.
>>34691775You decide to open the package Vahlen sent you. You see it sitting on your desk, still sealed. Looks like you could trust Jenner not to peek when curious. You break the seal and open up the packing to see a thick folder bundled inside. You tear it open to find personnel files and dossiers of various people. Attached is a small handwritten note.>Producer,>Attached is all of the information I could gather on Belle's security detail.

I really hope that we can squeeze some idol bonding time after this because I knew this would take awhile and I wanted to put this last since this is plot development
>>34692442You slowly dig through the files to see Vahlen's notes on each of the individual defenses.>UMBRELLA SECURITY DETAILUmbrella security personnel are nothing more than your regular, every day security guards. The receive only basic combat training and only have basic equipment. Good for keep an eye on a perimeter and keeping out burglars and paparazzi. However, they would most likely fold in a protracted battle with well trained, well motivated, and well equipped enemies.The villa has roughly a dozen of these guards.>AUTOMATED DEFENSESGetting past the villa's automated defenses is a bit trickier. It mostly consists of surveillance cameras and sensors, but there a few drones, both combat and noncombat. The main security system is not local, but is in fact connected to the main office's RED QUEEN system. This allows any security personnel in Umbrella HQ to remotely take over any wired system in the villa. It is in your best interest to disrupt this connection if possible.(cont)
>>34692960>The BBs.These are the combat idols assigned to protect Belle from any and all threats. Like Belle, they have been continually experimented on by Umbrella Corp. and have gained superhuman abilities. STELLA has received wolf-based genemods, giving her increased agility and heightened senses.KALINDA has received bear-based genemods. She has increased strength and toughness.VIVIAN has received reptilian genemods. She can spit corrosive venom and has mimetic skin.WEISSE has received pheremone based genemods that allow her to influence the behavior of members of the opposite sex. Though she probably won't be able to affect your girls, she could potentially use her abilities to boost her allies, instead.>HUNKUnfortunately, there is not much data on HUNK, other than that he is a commander in Umbrella Special Services. His main job is to ensure Umbrella assets do not fall into enemy hands, or retrieve assets desired by his superiors. Has a highly lethal combat record, and has a nasty reputation of completing nearly impossible missions, at the cost of his entire unit.Well... that was something. It looked like Belle had some serious security looking out for her."You look troubled." Jenner says as she walks in.

>>34692971>No, I think we can handle this.We just have to play this smart.Is it possible to get a psychological profile of the combat idols? Especially how they would react if they find out Belle wants to kill herself, such as obtaining the video Belle made. If we can get one girl to turn, that would be an invaluable asset to the operation.
>>34692971>Yes. Maybe we're biting off more than we can chew.We need a very good plan, a lot of training and prep time for this mission. We can do this mission but at this moment, the odds are greatly against us.
>>34692971>Yes, maybe it's best if we wait on this for a while until we are better geared.
>>34693000>>34693028What do you guys think of my idea:>>34693017>Is it possible to get a psychological profile of the combat idols?

>>34692971>No, I think we can handle this.Also... Is this Vivian's dad? If so, I fear the worst.
>>34693067I doubt it, these are highly trained combatants and possibly also reliant on umbrella's drugs. Also getting anymore information then that I really doubt it
>>34692971I like this>>34692999>>34693000
>>34692971>>Yes. Maybe we're biting off more than we can chew.Our eyes were bigger than our stomachs--and there's no shame in admitting that. Between the gene-modded combat idols backed up by goons and automated security and this big guy with a ferocious combat record, I'd say we're pretty outclassed.
>>34693079I'm trying to play on the fact that if these are combat idols protecting Belle, they might group to care for her and act in her best interest rather than Umbrella Corp.Or it might just be that they are a bunch of psychopaths or mentally programmed, then nevermind.
>>34692971>>Yes. Maybe we're biting off more than we can chew.Gonna call it.
>>34692971>>No, I think we can handle this.and >>34693000
>>34693067The fact of trying to get one to turn may jeopardize the operation as our cover could be blown
>>34693107Then we need bigger guns and more friends and their guns. I'm sure Umbrella has unfriendly Corporations that would love to see them lose their main idol.
>>34693107not is P-san gets his boots dirty, and this ain't idol business, so he could
>>34693127Well, selection is key, but otherwise I guess you have a good point.

>>34693143A very good point, he's pretty much the best choice for facing off against HUNK, assuming we can't somehow rope the Captain into this of course...
>>34692971>>No, I think we can handle this."This is going to be hell. Perhaps I will have Himawari do some looking around. There may be a way to get some of these pieces off of the table."

>>34693165The phone is for emergencies not for favors
>>34693165Please remember pheromone lady...
>>34693160>>34693165The key would be attacking asymmetrically to nullify their advantages.For example, I wonder if we can get the Magical Girl group to stage a guerrilla concert nearby to provoke the Combat Idols and draw them away from the compound.
>>34693165we've got her number, and this is not on the books, so the gloves are coming off>>34693192the character who we know is an experienced and decorated augmented special forces veteran is a bad idea for this mission?
>>34692971>>No, I think we can handle this.We're just gonna have to be REALLY careful
>>34693200we could get nose plugs
>>34693202Pheromone lady can influence P-san.
>>34693200Which can be nullified with a gas mask.
>>34693193This is exactly why we got her number you retard, for this very fucking mission.
>>34693213bring Jennerthe threat of our imminent doom is good enough to prevent those pheromones with messing with his brains
>>34693213so we kill her first or wear a fucking mask, big woop
I got another idea, anonymously hire a PMC to stage a diversionary frontal assault on the compound to distract them and draw their defenders to make our entry easier?The guerilla concert idea might be better though.
>>34692971"I wouldn't call it second thoughts, but I just need to figure out how to pull this off without getting any of our girls hurt." You sigh. "It's going to be tough.""Well, I'm sure you'll find a way." Jenner smiles. "Also, have you heard that Falynn and Rochelle got into a fight earlier today?""Really now?" You say, feigning ignorance. "Why would they do something like that?""I wonder." Jenner looks at you suspiciously. "Anyways, they're both in the infirmary for some minor wounds in case you want to scold them or something. Now, I have some work to take care of."Jenner then walks out. Perhaps you should check on your idols.>Go check on Rochelle and Falynn.>Go check on Melissa.>Other
>>34693263>>Go check on Rochelle and Falynn.
>>34693263>Go check on Rochelle and Falynn.I guess we have to apologize to Falynn for the inappropriate remark. And for damaging the VTOL.
>>34693263>Go check on Rochelle and Falynn.maximum apologetic.
>>34693263>Go check on Rochelle and Falynn.>>34693281we'll also have to apologize for the fact that we're probably going to get it blown up again for the assult
>>34693263>>Go check on Rochelle and Falynn.I suppose this is more pressing, but we should be certain to check on Melissa after. She has just come back from a confrontation with her nemesis.
>>34693236Hiring a PMC requires money--money we don't have. At best, we could probably hope for two squads of dudes and some humvees--not exactly a lot when compared to gene-modded soldiers and a shady big guy.
>>34693296Perhaps we just hire them to deal with the regular security and stuff while we sneak in back.
>>34693263>>Go check on Rochelle and Falynn.Be sorry, but make sure they know that having a secret OFF switch for your Producer and Boss' augs is NOT OKAYsuch a device in the wrong hands and...
>>34693290I have a feeling this will be a recurring issue. Think we could score some armor for a bird at some point? Just enough to resist .50 cal rounds anyway.
>>34693309Oh right, the tickling event...>>34693263>Go check on Melissa.I want to see how our girl is doing. Or Niko
>>34693309great are we going to have to carry a rape whistle now
>>34693263>>Go check on Melissa.Guess who has one robotic thumb and is getting a new suit of armor~
>>34693327And how are we supposed to reach it without functioning arms anon?
After this, do a minor concert to get money for more purchases
>>34693309Completely agree. She ever uses one of those on us again and there WILL be consequences
>>34693336then i guess we'll have to create another contingency planout fuck the rapist
>>34693336built in mouth whistle
>>34693296>>34693307Wait, here's an idea I haven't thought of for a while:Railgun.Just how powerful is it? Can the AP round go through straight through the walls? Then we just put Morgan up on a vantage point and provide overwatch for the entire operation.Because no matter how much experience you have, bullet or railgun shell will still kill you.
>>34693281Of course, green is in fact an excellent color for underwear.
>>34693327>Implying we'll be able to bring it to our lips when our arms are dead weightI hope Producer is as dexterous with his feet as Rin.
>>34693355True, but how much experience does the enemy have? They probably went through worse.
>>34693373Well, in a best case, it would be like having a FarSight XR-20, replacing the X-Ray sight with another solution, like an integrated tactical visual system. In a worst case scenario, it gives them another obstacle and would pin them down or force them to maneuver to avoid Railgun shells.
Oh, and one generally good and simple idea would be for Lilith to pay a social visit to Belle. Have Harbinger make a recording of everything she sees in the compound. That way we get a better feel of the compound, and even better if we can see the combat idols, to size them up better. Best case would be to see Hunk himself.
>>34693307An attack on the perimeter will only put internal security on heightened alert. While our initial penetration may be easier, we'll be facing an internal security force expecting an attack, which has the potential to be disastrous.>>34693355A weapon like that would be advantageous from a high-enough, far-away spot, but unless you wanna strip our CAS support and turn it into an orbiting sniper platform, we'll probably not find any high ground that is both accessible to our sniper and practical for the operation.
I don't know why, but I'm getting a Cobra Unit vibe from these combat idols....At least one of them doesn't have Bullet Bees...
>>34693451Does Lilith even linked in to the Harbinger network?
>>34693458I'm not sure how useful CAS is going to be in this mission. It's easy enough to pin down the defenders outside the compound and penetrate the compound, but assuming the defenders are smart, the CQC within the compound is going to be hell. Having precise fire vertically can be a huge asset, it would negate any cover advantages they would have. The girls inside can spot them and pin them down, and Morgan can nail them with Railgun AP rounds.
>>34693491The Harbinger works with a nanomachine injection, so it should be fine.
>>34693503>I'm not sure how useful CAS is going to be in this mission>Having precise fire vertically can be a huge asset, it would negate any cover advantages they would have. The girls inside can spot them and pin them down, and Morgan can nail them with Railgun AP rounds.you just perfectly described CAS...
>>34693517Sorry, I meant traditional CAS. I would expect the compound to be hardened against bullets and rockets. I would be surprised if Railgun AP rounds cannot penetrate the roof.
>>34693263You decide to go check in on Rochelle and Falynn. Fortunately, they weren't hurt too bad. Just a few scratches and bruises that Dr. Giles easily patches up. "All right, so did you two finally get it all out of your systems?" You ask the two girls. "Yes." They both say glumly."Now, Falynn, I'm really sorry that I got the Hornet shot up, but you can't go around hijacking peoples arms like that, okay? All you have to do is voice your concerns and I'll listen. Okay?""Okay." Falynn nods, a bit of a guilty look on her face."Also, I'm sorry about peeking like that, but it was kind of hard not to."Falynn doesn't say anything, but instead just blushes and turns away."And Rochelle." You turn to her. "I know you're just trying to look out for me, but Falynn is still our engineer, and your friend. You don't need to be going all physical with her or anything.""Understood." Rochelle sighs."So uh, sorry about hitting you in the stomach with that wrench." Falynn says sheepishly."Ah, don't worry about it. I did tackle you pretty hard." Rochelle chuckled. "Wanna go play some Goldeneye?""Sure!"You just shake your head. Sometimes you just couldn't understand girls, and you doubted you ever would.>And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. And don't forget that PJ Witches is on Sunday and Gundam Build Fighters on Tuesday!
>>34693735Thanks for the thread Merc but I wanted to know how much does Rochelle know about the device?Did she over hear it? Or more unconventional reasons?
>>34693530>traditional CASwutyou are still contradicting yourself anon
>>34693735Thanks for the thread Merc
>>34693735I have a question Merc, how did Rochelle know about the Producer's off switch? As much as I like to think she overhead everything. I can't help but think she may have had a hand in its creation.
>>34693735Thanks for running Merc, this is one of my favorite active quests. Also, I too would like to know how Rochelle knows of this device, do any of the other girls know about it?
>>34693760>>34693788How does she, I wonder?
>>34693809Dammit Merc!I want to know can the Producer ask her.Frankly, I'm surprised she wasn't questioned on how much she knows? Even the Producer was suspicious
>>34693809This information is of vital importance Merc, for reasons. /Tg/ needs to know, tell us.
>>34693809Do all of our idols have their own storylines in this quest?From what I can tell Cole, Melissa and to a lesser extent Rin has their own storylines.Will the other idols have he same?
>>34693809I was hoping if we went to check on her that we can ask.Also not star points for Decu's art?
