While Holly is busy putting the finishing touches on your Jester repairs. You're passing the time catching up on the fights that were happening alongside yours in the last round. First, there was Fellini's fight against Mao. Mao put up a pretty good fight, but it was clear after the first couple of minutes that it was Fellini's fight. The Crossbone Maoh's reliance on his big ticket weapons like his satellite cannon and buster sword proved to be his undoing as they were too big and unwieldy to catch the quick and nimble Rinaschita. All Fellini needed to to do was wait for an opening and knock out the Maoh with a pinpoint buster rifle shot. (cont)
>>35292102Laura had the misfortune of being matched up against the Renato brothers, who took her simplistic, head on attack style and used it against her. First they lured her Loto Leopard into an open, sandy area, where they had preplanted a series of sonic emitters that literally liquefied the ground under the Loto, sinking it into the earth. Now, that sort of weapon would be useless against any other mobile suit except one that could fly, which led you to believe that the Renatos deliberately tailored their loadout against Laura. While not against the rules, it was generally seen as unsportsmanlike.You already knew how Charlotte's fight was going to turn out, but you decided to watch it, anyways. It was a dazzling lightshow of two bright red Gunpla crisscrossing each other in the air. The Krimson Kampfer's natural speed and agility seemed just enough to match the F91 Imagine and its Back Jetstream move, and for most of the fight neither fighter was able to get an advantage over the other. However, near the end, you noted the Kampfer exhibiting an odd, blue glow in the gaps and joints of its armor, and its performance enhanced significantly, wrecking the F91 in a sudden, unexpected burst of speed. You briefly wonder if Charlotte had been forced to expose her trump card, even if for just a little bit. You also noted that when she moved to pick up her Kampfer after the battle, she made sure to do so with a thick, protective cloth. Curious.(cont)
>>35292111Finally, you decide to hit up an ESPN stream to see the general news of what was going on in the tournament."So, the Gunpla World Tournament Finals are just around the corner!" One of the announcers says excitedly. "And boy, was it nothing like we expected!""That's right, Joe!" The other announcer nodded. "Now, Fellini and the Renato brothers were always expected to place highly, and Rafale was always seen as the supernova of the season, but out of nowhere, we get Jack Foulke, who managed an upset victory against Meijin Kawaguchi!"You then saw clips of the fight taking place, showing a few highlights, such as both of your Gunpla going Trans Am, and the final swordfight. "So, Tom, do you think this kid is the real deal, or has he just lucked his way in this far?""I don't think you can just 'luck' your way past the Meijin, Joe." Tom shakes his head. "But we'll see in his next fight against-">Fellini>the Renato brothers

>>35292129"-the Renato brothers. They've consistently proven to be very crafty fighters. I do believe in the 7th WT, they nearly took out the Meijin in the semifinals."The screen shows some older replay footage with the GM Sniper K9 doing pretty well against the Kampfer Amazing, up until it got shredded to pieces by a vulcan cannon. Kind of poetic, really. "So I assume you've got your money on Foulke, then?" Joe asks."You bet! If the last couple years have shown us anything, it's that you can't underestimate the newcomers!" "Well, I'm sticking with the Renatos here, especially considering how they ripped apart another promising newcomer in the last round. Anyways, be sure to stay tuned for our live coverage of the semifinals later today!"You turn off the stream as ads start playing and go to check on Holly."Hey, Holly, is the Jester ready?" You ask."Yep!" Holly nods. "It's good as new!""Thanks." You ruffle your sister's hair. "Anyways, I gotta head for the stadium. I'll see you later."You head for the stadium alone this time, as it seemed Charlotte had already left. You sort of wonder why she'd leave so early, and you quickly see why.Reporters.Lots of them.And they were swarming all over the stadium entrance. You guess with the finals coming closer, media attention would start to increase around the event. >Just go through. What's the worst that can happen?>You don't have time for this.

>>35292709And... it was not as bad as you feared it would be. However, you partly think that was the stadium security actually being forward thinking and sending several guards to clear a path for you. You answer the odd question or two, but don't stop moving. Not like you really could have picked out individual questions from all the noise and clutter, anyways. Finally, you're through the worst of it and inside the stadium.

Hey guys, I have an idea to put out there.I know we have been talking about suicide balls, but I think Holly would dislike that idea.What about a Typhoon ball, like the Typhoon Explosive System from Deus Ex? Saturate an area with bomblets, to murder any bits or fragile components in the area.

You ask, nodding your head to the Italian Dandy, who seemed to be talking with Ral."Ah, nervous, excited, the usual when having to face a tough opponent." Charlotte sighed."Well, just make sure you win, okay? You're only allowed to lose to me.""Ha, getting ahead of yourself there, aren't you?" Charlotte laughs and punches you in the shoulder. "I'm going to be the one to win this time!""Sure, sure, whatever you say." You laugh as well. "But really, good luck against Fellini.""I don't need luck." Charlotte grins evilly.

>>35293365>Talk to the Renatos.Talk to them as we get to the stadium.
Well gents, I got to sleep. Roll well.
>>35293365You decide to proceed straight to the stadium. The time for talk was over. Now was the time to fight!Once again you're bombarded with cheering and applause as you enter the stadium. On the outer periphery, you briefly notice that some previous fighters have now become spectators, eager to see who will take home the championship in person. You head for your assigned table, where you see the Renato brothers have already set up shop."Well look at this, the little pup's finally arrived." You see one of them sneer."Time to teach the little upstart a lesson." The other brother nods.Jeez, what a pair of dicks.You don't say anything and just calmly take out your Jester. As expected, the Renatos bring out their GM Sniper K9 mk2, a rebuild of their previous Gunpla, which undoubtedly had expanded capabilities. You couldn't afford to underestimate it.PLEASE SET GP BASEBEGINNING PLAVSKY PARTICLE DISPERSALFIELD: FORESTPLEASE SET YOUR GUNPLABoth your Jester and the K9 are deployed into the field. Immediately, you try to get a good read on your surroundings. This time, it was a forested area at night, so everything was rather dark. Your camera switches to nightvision mode, while your Balls deploy to give you extra eyes. Your Defender Ball rises up a bit to get a higher view.From what you can see, you were set down on a peninsula. To your south was the coast, while up north was more forest with a decently sized town and a military compound set in the middle. Farther north, near the table boundary was a set of hills. You wonder where the Renatos could set up. The forest provided a lot of concealment, which would give them plenty of places to hide and lay traps. The town and base had a lot of hard cover they could use as protection, while the hills were the high ground and had a rather commanding view of the field.>Head into the forest.>Head for the town.>Head for the hills.>Other
>>35293684>>Head for the town.
>>35293684>Head for the hills.It will at least prevent the Renatos from setting up tripwires easily.
>>35293684>Head for the hills.They camped in the initial battles. Corner camping might not be so far fetched.
>>35293684>Head for the hills.Lets try the hills, we are up against a sniper so lets think like a sniper.
>>35293684>>Head for the hills.
>>35293684The Forest has poor visibility and lots of traps.The Town is cramped, with poor visibility and is filled with traps.The Hills are open, with little cover besides the hillsides and I'll give you three chances to guess what the renatos put in there. First two don't count.We have a GN drive and its Magical Pixie Dust Generator powers.Powers that include flying despite having the aerodynamics of a brick.>Take to the air and use your scanners, get a feel of the terrain and where thy might hide.>After scanning, search for some cover and start jamming the area with GN Particles to mess with their targetting. No need to get sniped that soon in the match.
>>35293684I agree with >>35293802 that we need to jam their shit with GN Particlesbut>>Head for the hillshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=geHLdg_VNww
>>35293802>take to the air>GM SNIPERThats some wonderful logic there sir.
>>35293802>implying you'll have time to scan at all
>>35293802We do have a pretty good build for fighting the Renatos. ECM and powerful sensors will eliminate a lot of their advantages. Add to that the fact that we can flank them with the Balls like they can with the Dog Pack and the Trans-Am to counter their EXAM and we have a better shot than most would against their tricks. Hell, we even have the whole greased joints thing, too, to counter any sapping. I'm sure the Renatos have added plenty of new tricks, but at least their old ones won't work.
>>35293684You decide to head for the hills. It would give you the high ground, as well as deny it to the Renatos, whose Gunpla was heavily reliant on sniping. However, GETTING to the hills was another issue. In order to get there, you'd have to cut through the forest, or go around it on the coast. The forest was the most direct route, but also the easiest to get ambushed in. The coast was relatively safer, but it would take a lot longer to get to the hills, and you would have no guarantee of reaching there before the Renatos did.Or hell, you could just fly there. Damn the torpedoes and all.>Cut through the forest.>Move up the coast.>Fly straight there.>Other
>>35293849Yeah, in hindsight, that wasn't a good suggestion.>>35293802Forget the "Take to the air part", but keep everything else.Also, add>Run to the Hills
>>35293887>Cut through the forest.We have good sensors and AI drones to watch our back. I think we can risk it.
>>35293887>Move up the coast
>>35293887>>Cut through the forest.Keep that Defender Ball ready
>>35293887>Cut through the forest.The Renatos camped on the coast in one of their matches before the World Championship, and murdered their opponents with an ambush using the sand.No way we'll get close to the beach.
>>35293887>Cut through the forest.Sometimes you gotta deal with the obvious traps to get to the dangerous target.
>>35293887>Move up the coast.
>>35293887>Fly straight there.Damn the torpedoes indeed!
>>35293887>>Cut through the forest.
>>35293887>Cut through the forest.
Not really related to this, but I just thought of something neat. I'm watching the subbed first episode of Reconguista in G right now. And it occurs to me that several of the designs have torsos with the waist joint being a large spherical section. I suggest that Jack's next gunpla be one of those. Mix it with the Core Block system and he could combine with the Balls as needed. Just eject the current torso and fly in a new one with new features.
>>35293887You decide to carefully push into the forest, keeping a wary eye out for any possible traps or ambushes. Your Balls follow suit, acting as extra eyes as they keep a full 360 watch. Your Defender Ball flies ahead, considering it's the one that can take the most damage from any potential trap.However, you've seen no indication of the K9 anywhere. You could try pinging it on radar, However, the forest would limit your effective detection range, so it would only pick them up if they were close to you. You also risked giving away your own position, since you had no doubt that the Renatos had ways of detecting active sensors.>Use your radar.>Keep it off.>Other
>>35294090>>Keep it off.
>>35294077that's actual pretty neat>>35294090>Keep it off.

>>35294112Yeah. I mean, it's not anything that's going to happen before the end of the quest, but it could be an epilogue thing like how Sei had the Build Strike Cosmos for the final shot of the series.
>>35294090>>Keep it off.>>otherSend one of our dakka balls ahead. It has the cloak and can remain hidden abit.
>>35294090You decide to not use your radar. You keep pressing forward, fortunately not running into anything dangerous.However, your sensors wail an alarm and you turn your head to see missiles firing off straight into the sky. You wonder just what the hell the Renatos were doing. No way those missiles could get a lock on you. You weren't getting any radar locks, the missiles were too far away for IR to work, you were in cover so optical sensors were out of the question, and in the even they were using some kind of anti-radiation missile, you never even turned on your radar.However, you can see the missiles turn and head toward your position. Obviously, those missiles had some way of tracking you!>roll 1d20

Those assholes must have brought out GN-seeking missiles!You had a few options. You could shoot down the missiles, but you'd give away your position. Your could try using your countermeasure suite, but you weren't sure how they would affect the missiles' guidance systems. You could also split up your Balls to draw the missiles away. Actually, you could have your Balls got Trans Am. You reckon that would throw enough GN particles into the field to make the missiles pretty much useless, at least for a while.>Shoot down the missiles.>Activate countermeasures.>Split up your Balls.>TRANS AM your Balls.>Other
>>35294291Good job Anon, well there is two ways I can see so far for the missiles knowing where we are. The brothers have some remote way of painting us as a target for the missiles or the missiles are tv guided to the target.

>>35294636Happy it's just one. Though the 41 worries me.
>>35294599Well, you're not sure if the countermeasures worked, or whether there was sufficient GN particle dispersal to throw off their aim, as some of the missiles veer off course and head for the trees behind you. However, one missiles stays on target, and makes a beeline straight for your formation. Thankfully, your Defender Ball manages to intercept it just in time, but only just. The missile slams into its planet defensor field, causing a massive explosion. The shockwave is enough to knock your Jester on its ass and causes your Balls to rattle in the air briefly. The last three land in the trees and explode brilliantly as well, further disorienting your Gunpla. Damn, guess they gave those missiles a wide blast to make up for the fact they were tracking an easily dispersed particle.However, you now have a rough position of where the missiles came from. You consider chasing after the Renatos, but knowing them, it might just be a proxy launcher or their K9 unit. You'd just be on a wild goose chase. Then again, in either case, that launcher might still have ammo, and killing the K9 unit would get rid of almost half the threat. And you could always luck out and run into the actual GM Sniper.Or you could just hold your position. The Renatos would have to send something in to confirm the kill...>Head for the launch site.>Proceed to the hills. >Send some Balls to investigate.>Hold your ground.>Other

>>35295187And.... nobody comes. Maybe the Renatos were just too cautious. After all, they were a cautious sort. You check in on your Ball, but it doesn't find anything either. Just an empty launcher. Both choices were dead ends. >Continue to wait.>Head for the hills.>Other

Rolled 17 (1d20)>>35295313You decide to make your way to the hills. You've wasted enough time mucking about in this forest, after all. You recall your dakka ball and start making your way for the hills.>roll 1d20

>>35295576>>35295583>>35295584That looks like a crit to me. A tie is still a success afterall.
>>35295600I think it would have been great.Both sides just missing each other for most of the match. Then one brief and fast battle to end it.
>>35295634Or maybe it'll be a sniping duel.
>>35295631>>35295614No, you have to BEAT all the rolls for it to be a critical. Two of our rolls tied.
>>35295573You head up to the hill, and fortunately, don't run into any trouble. It seems that you've beaten the Renatos up here. However, as you make your way to the top, you see a ruby beam lance out, though it misses rather badly. Your Beamspam Ball gets an eye and positive ID on the shot. It came from the military base below.>Try to countersnipe the Sniper.>Head down there to assault the base.>Send your Balls after him.>Other

>>35295867>Try to countersnipe the Sniper.
>>35295867Such a blatant trap.
>>35295936Which is why we "fall for it". We return fire, while having the Balls search for where they really are.
>>35295913I support this course of action.
>>35295867>OtherFire up the radar. They clearly know where we are, so there's no point in avoiding active emissions right now. Let's verify their position.
>>35295913I agree with this.
Rolled 5, 19, 13 = 37 (3d20)>>35295867You send your two Dakka Balls after the shot to investigate. Meanwhile, your Beamspam Ball starts to lay down counterfire on the base demolishing all kinds of buildings and stocked supplies, but not certain if you actually hit the Sniper itself.

>>35296017Unfortunately, you can't tell if you've really hit anything or not. Your Dakka Balls swoop in and sweep the area. One of them spots the silhouette of the Sniper making a run for the town, no doubt to a backup sniping position. However, before it can fire, it gets tackled by the K9 unit, which latches on and doesn't let go, throwing off the Dakka Ball's aim as the robotic dog claws at its armor.Your second Dakka Ball hesitates, as if trying to decide to help its fellow Ball or pursue the Sniper.>Pursue the Sniper>Atttack the K9>Other

>>35296282>Atttack the K9Don't rush after a trap-focused build that's retreating. That's just asking to have a building collapsed on us. And taking out the K9 will simplify things a great deal.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>35296282You order your Dakka Ball to attack the the K9 while you reposition, sliding down the hill towards the base. The Renatos knew your position anyways, and they couldn't fire at you while they were repositioning themselves.

>>35296410It wasn't so much as a shooting gallery as it was mercy killing Old Yeller. Your Dakka Ball simply unloads directly into the K9 unit and you see it literally shred apart to pieces, knocking off the other Dakka Ball. It quickly backs away to gain distance before joining in on the execution. The K9 then explodes in a much larger fireball than you expect. That K9 unit was no doubt rigged with explosives as a sort of roving booby trap. That was pretty low.By this point, you reached the remnants of the burning base. Your Beamspam Ball had been keeping an eye on the town and hadn't seen the Sniper come out, meaning that he was still in there. While you were sure the Sniper wasn't as adept as your Jester in close combat, he no doubt had plenty of time to turn the town into a fortress.>Head into the town.>Fly over the town to force the Sniper to expose its position.>Other

>>35296603You and your Balls expend pretty much all of your munitions just raining down fiery doom upon the unsuspecting town. Buildings are blown apart as if they were made of nothing but glass and twigs. Secondary explosions ripple through the streets as countless booby traps are set off by the assault. You can see GM Sniper dashing out of the town. You try to follow until you see that they Renatos had more than one K9 unit. They had an entire damn wolfpack of them, easily a half dozen or so, screening their masters' escape. You could probably try to fight them or fly past them, but you were wary of them being booby trapped.>Fight the K9s>Bypass the K9s>Have your Balls fight the K9s.>Other

>>35296687>OtherAttach our Balls to the racks, then activate our quintuple Trans Am, and proceed to chase the GM Sniper for the Renato's impending rape.
>>35296687>Fight the K9sHow did they even fit all those on? I'm impressed. We need to take these out, and make sure they're out, before we proceed to do anything else. At least the Renatos are probably nearly out of tricks. They can only fit so much on one mobile suit, and with a town full of traps and seven K9 Units already deployed, they must be running low.
>>35296746But so are we, we expended all of our ammunition apparentlyLeaving us with maybe our beam rifles if the GN drive still supports the energy cap.
>>35296829We expended all of our explosives. But the Dakka Balls still have their autocannons and beam rifles, and the Beamspam Ball is recharging its weapons. We also have a functioning Dakka Ball and Trans-Am to fall back on. We're in better shape than they are, even if we haven't gotten a hit in yet.
>>35296858You mean both Dakka Balls, I think our defender ball can also fight by using planet defensor

Rolled 18, 1, 2, 9, 4, 13 = 47 (6d20)>>35296687You decide to stand and fight the K9s. You could always track the Renatos down later. While your Beamspam Ball recharges, you and Dakka Balls go in, guns blazing as the K9s charge you.>roll 3d20

>>35297009ouch, I guess this is going to hurt.
>>35296922Your beam rifle and your Dakka Balls wreak a terrible toll on the K9s, obliterating 5 of them in your opening salvo. However, the sixth and last one manages to dodge all of your incoming fire and leaps into the air, latching onto one of your Dakka Balls. However, this K9 doesn't bother to wait, and explodes right away, taking your Dakka Ball with it. You back away from the blast.Well, you were down a Ball and the Sniper was still out there. You had to rethink your options.>Chase the Sniper>Fly over the forest and try to find it with radar.>Other

>>35297111You can't quite spot the GM Sniper, at least not before it takes a shot at you. Thankfully, your Defender Ball just happens to be in the right position and its I-Field saves you, deflecting the sniper beam shop away from you and into the sky.

>>35297190You get a positive lock on the Sniper and fire off you beam rifle in response. However, you only seem to graze the GM Sniper, which doesn't stop it from trying to line up another shot. You see its visor start glowing red, as well, no doubt activating its EXAM system.>Shoot it down.>Rush it with Trans Am>Other
>>35297346I think high = more debilitating. At least from what I recall from the last few threads.

>>35297369>Rush it with Trans Am
>>35297369>>Rush it with Trans Am
>>35297383It's a system from the UC 1 year war where a Zeon scientist created a system for a mobile suit pilot to fight on the level of a newtype. The horrible thing about the EXAM system is that the main part of it used the trapped soul of a newtype.
>>35297369>Rush it with Trans AmI have no idea what it is but all caps is never a good thing.
>>35297383In canon, the EXAM system basically turns the suit into Evangelion Unit 01. A computer housing a trapped human soul lets the mobile suit faster and more powerful, but it occasionally goes berserk and tries to kill everything in order to end its pain. But the Renato brothers didn't have any souls to work with, so it just does the enhancement effects without any berserking. It's basically functions as Trans-Am, when they use it.
>>35297413>>35297407Ah. Then lets just go all out on it, yeah?
>>35297346IIRC the roll is for location hit not actual damage.
>>35297429This is definitely a "oh shit" moment when a sniper gets enhanced reflexes.
>>35297429I'm just worried that they're using it to lure us in and have something planned for when we get closer. Probably not, since they've generally tried to avoid getting close to us, but they might have a trap waiting. Well, worse comes to worse we can use some of our own secret features. We still haven't used the boosted Trans-Am or the extra arms.
Rolled 8, 20, 7 = 35 (3d20)>>35297369You activate Trans Am without warning or fanfare. Knowing the Renatos, they were probably going to use the EXAM to heighten their GM Sniper's reaction time, and the last thing you needed was a sniper with heightened reflexes. You hope that your increased speed will at least offset that advantage as you speed in, beam saber drawn.>roll 1d20

Rolled 7, 8, 2 = 17 (3d20)>>35297493You quickly use your Ball Recall to summon your Defender Ball, using it as a shield its I-Field and Planet Defensors absorb the hits. However, the GM Sniper doesn't hit the planet defensor field, but all of the individual shield projectors, completely destroying the Defender's first layer of defense. The I-Field likewise begins to fail as the strain is too much. However, you manage to close some distance between yourself and the GM Sniper.>roll 2d20

>>35297541You speed in, beam saber drawn and ready to strike. However, the GM Sniper is fast. Very fast. One of its arms shoots out and snags your beam saber arm by the wrist, preventing it from moving, while its other arm grabs your shield arm, preventing that one from being able to move, too. Then, its head vulcans start opening up, chipping away at your armor. However, you remember your secondary arms, and activate those. Your two racks flip over your Jester's shoulders and slam into each side of the GM Sniper's head, crushing it inwards and jamming its head vulcans. Then, your right secondary arm snatches the beam saber out of your grappled arm and slashes downward, slicing the GM Sniper in half with a long diagonal cut through its torso.BATTLE ENDEDThe field then powers down, and you're overwhelmed by the cheering."HE'S DONE AGAIN! HE'S DONE IT AGAIN!" You hear the announcer roar. "JACK FOULKE MOVES ON TO THE GRAND FINALS!"You turn to the other table, and see Charlotte's battle had just ended as well."AND FELLINI HAS BEEN DEFEATED AS WELL!

>>35297616Great run as always merc, I got one question though will you continue running the quest after the tournament is over or will it be the end of the quest?
>>35297616Nice thread Merc.Gundam Festival?Let's go for this
>>35297616Whew! That was one long, nail biting session Merc. Thanks for truckin' with this quest.
>>35297616good run Merc, till next time
>>35297616I'm glad we got a chance to use the secondary arms. This was a good fight. So I'm guessing we'll have the Gundam Festival as Thursday's thread and the final match next Friday, then?
>>35297616Holly is best girl, Those arms are amazing!Also, Char's Gunpla has Destroyer mode?
>>35297626Tournament will pretty much be the end of it. Don't really know where I can take it after that.
>>35297642I was hoping to use our hidden blade launcher
Imouto needs a reward for all the work she's done for us.Molest imouto for +3 to success then , yes?
>>35297648What's the Gundam Festival again?Will we ever have a chance to fight, Mao, Fellini or Ral?
>>35297678The Gundam Festival is exactly what it sounds like.And probably not. Can't have everything in life, you know?
>>35297678The gundam festival is a bring convention where fans of gundams come to enjoy before the final begins, during the festival of the show random people did get to fight tournament fighters.
>>35297690I'll just imagine that we fought them sometime between the end of the tournament and the epilogue.
>>35297690I curse the People not wanting to fight Fellini during the Prelims when it was offered to u multple times but nobody wanted to because they wanted to see Char fight.
I'm guessing no time for the Ball Armour upgrade?
>>35297696It's also where all the dead of Gundam are revived so that they might find happiness in another universe. Cameos appear throughout the series, but the Gundam festival seemed to only have dead people.
>>35297678SoL thread, probably. Aw yeah, there's still a chance for Mac, Karen, and Amy to pull off a Domon, Milliardo, and Puru segment.http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=JNmIl8DtJ30Also, there might be a slim chance of interacting with characters from the rest of the Gundam franchises that died and went to this Gundam valhalla.
>>35297731I hope next thread won't be a Waifu war.I like Lucina and Char do I rather avoid the whole spam voting on who to spend time with.
>>35297748I dunno I think we have shown the most interest in Charlotte this quest so we might be ending up with her not to mention she is our rival. Course that always could change during the coming threads.
>>35297821I thought it was between Lucina and Char mostly?I just hope it will end like the amusement park ride thing from a couple of threads ago. Or maybe keep it up in the air.
>naked newtype reaction with Char on the final match
>>35297748Don't remind me. I'd rather have the next thread pre-autosage be filled with screen time from characters who had very few of those. Maybe watching a short 3v3 battle from the sidelines that'll be instrumental in figuring out Plavsky manipulation.Heck, toss in Mao, Fellini and Ral as participants while we're at it.
>>35297871Merc, Jake, and AmyVsFellini, Mao, and Ral?
>>35297905Yeah, that'd be for the best. Amy is also our resident Plavsky expert, so getting into the thick of it with the pros would gives her, and us by extension, some insight in gunpla and plavsky stuff.
>>35297929Also I want to see Mac since we never used his Falcon
