Sam grunts as she shuffles through a number of files. "Intercepts of OB communications have a very high number of mentions for you and the rest of the Wild Cards.""Huh, I can't imagine why." You say as you roll your eyes.Currently, you were in one of the Artemis hangars at the Pillar, Atlas' B7R headquarters. A salvage team had come out to recover the Morgan wreck you had found at Avalon Dam, and hurriedly shipped it all the way back here. In secret, of course. Not even Atlas staff knew about it. Not yet, anyways. "You know, I can't believe it." Sam shakes her head. "People have been looking for that plane for YEARS, and never found it. And then you just happen to come along and scoop it up in a day.""Ace's luck, I suppose." You shrug. "Either way, it's a huge fuckin' mess!" Smokey grunts as he walks up, wiping oil from his hands. "The frame is still miraculously intact, but pretty much everything else is trashed. It's not getting back in the air anytime soon."(cont)
>>39270168"Quint, can we get parts for it?" Sam turns to your resident merchant/conman.""Hmmmmm." Quint frowns as he inspects the Morgan wreck. "I'm sure there are standardized parts that we can get easily, but it's not going to be enough. The Morgan was literally a one of a kind fighter, so spare parts are virtually nonexistent.""Well, that's not entirely true." Smokey interrupts. "Karla here shot down an OB Morgan not too long ago, right? That means they must have a way to manufacture or maintain them. If we can find out how, we might be able to rebuild it.""So you're saying we infiltrate or assault an OB base?" Sam blinks."That's one way." Smokey shrugs."Karla, there's no guarantee that we'll ever get this plane up and running ever again." Sam says to you. "If we can transfer the wreck to our R&D department, they might be able to glean something from it. We're prepared to compensate you with the purchase of one plane of your choice from our inventory. Free of charge.""Wait, what?" Quint gasps."You heard me." Sam says.>I'll keep it for now.>...what kind of planes are we talking about?>Other
>>39270171>>...what kind of planes are we talking about?Lets hear what they can offer now.
>>39270171>...what kind of planes are we talking about?HUE HUE HUE
>>39270171>...what kind of planes are we talking about?then>I'll keep it for now.I just want to see what they offer, but we should keep it for now
>>39270171>...what kind of planes are we talking about?Do not dishonor the buddyAlso, obligatory>Live from /tg/, it's FRIDAY NIGHT
>>39270171>...what kind of planes are we talking about?
>>39270171>>I'll keep it for now.I am not giving up Pixy's Morgan
>>39270171>I'll keep it for now.It belongs in the skies, not a lab.
>>39270171>>...what kind of planes are we talking about?Such a shame that we'll probably never reproduce an ECM as good as the original; a TLS as energy efficient; or find someone willing to sell us MPBMs.
I want to see what they will offer but I won't trade it in, we will end up flying in it.
>>39270236I'm more interested in the "LEGENDARY PLANE" Status, which can be good and/or bad considering "Here comes the SNOW!", or the whole incident with the ECM not covering up the front air-intakes and taking all that battle damage (possibly giving it some reliability issues).
>>39270234>Obligatory not!Jones joke
>>39270171>>I'll keep it for now.>But what would you offer for it?
>>39270236We can live without ECM.Shame about TLS, but maybe Merc will make it available on final threads.And we still need to check one of faults that our uncle pointed to us, maybe we can get something useful there.
>>39270261>or the whole incident with the ECM not covering up the front air-intakesECM doesn't work that way....
>>39270295Well, if Grunder kept its shit together after AC5, then there should be a few production FALKENs that we can get our hands on to reverse-engineer a TLS from
>>39270171>I'll keep it for now.It's the Morgan. Unless they are willing to fork over another Superplane, we might be looking at our second-to-last plane here.
>>39270171>>I'll keep it for now.Its a morgan. And a heirloom.
>>39270171>>I'll keep it for now.
>>39270308You obviously haven't BUDDY'd hard enough anonPerhaps this will helpWhere's that cap of the guy with 20 tabs of Zero open?
>>39270261Yeah, Cipher really fucked up the air-intakes with all those missiles...
So I heard there's a new PMC taking on both Atlas and Artemis. And it also starts with an A.
>>39270171>...what kind of planes are we talking about?I want to know before we decide.
>>39270325>inb4 Pixy comes to B7R and demands a duel with Karla for his Morgan.
>>39270348I'm pretty sure we've already decided to keep it, we just want to know what they'll offer for it.
>>39270349So you could be saying that we have 2 Belkans fighting for some clay, eh?
>>39270341Hey there, buddy.
Actually, the options shouldnt be so hard and fast right?I mean we do have the plane and its not like we're going to say 'no you can't take a look to see what makes this thing tick'.They can inspect, do scans and download all the data they need want to do their R&D. The only thing where we draw the line would be teardown work which would render the plane unusable.
>>39270416>The only thing where we draw the line would be teardown work which would render the plane unusable.that's what the R&D department wants to dobut yeah I say we can let them inspect and scan it an all that, but they don't remove anything from it or any of that, this is all in the goal of putting it back together again
>>39270171>>I'll keep it for now.This is an ace custom holy relic in the eyes of ACE Combat fans. we must keep it and secretly funnel our money into restoration.
I think we need to make clear that if we let RnD get a crack at that Morgen, we get a Morgen out of what they find.
>>39270485not A morganOUR morgan, Pixy's morgan.they fuck up our plane, we add them to our kill tally
>>39270445Yea but what i mean is that even when we dont agree to the teardown, they'll still have access to see how the morgan works so its not a total loss to them.And maybe they can compensate us abit for that access, haha.
>>39270485But this is the Pixy Morgan we're talking aboutA plane whose ECM literally runs on Belkan magic and BUDDY
Also, we should total contact our Knight-Apprentice to ask her where her base where she flew her morgan out was located at.There has to be morgan parts there.
>>39270503...I'm not very familiar with Ace Combat lore. Mostly because i have yet to get a ps2 and play thru all the games myself, and i want the experience of playing thru it myself instead of watching lets plays on youboob.My question: Are we taking up this Pixy's role?
>>39270537Brilliant idea anonwe MUST do this
>>39270485you dare desecrate and scrap down what could be the original Morgan? shame on you. Mercenary scum
>>39270554No. Pixy went emo and SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS.
>>39270537'Yo, squire. I find Pixy Morgan but i need some spare parts to make it fly again. And since you were flying a Morgan last time, i presume you know where i can find it."
>>39270537This idea is interesting...
>>39270554>My question: Are we taking up this Pixy's role?nope
>>39270537This. So hard my floor turned to EML's.
>>39270171>>...what kind of planes are we talking about?Let us look over the choices of planes before making the final decision. I'm sure Merc'll let us decide after we look.that and it's not gonna be easy getting hte parts needed to fix it.
>>39270554We're nowhere near going Pixy on our buddies>>39270563You've earned this
>>39270569to be fair, watching a town burned down with little regard for its inhabitant could make you goes emo.
.....R&D wants a morgan wreck?DIDNT WE ALREADY DOWN A MORGAN?We just need to find our Squire's wreck.Win. Win.
For some reason, i can't stop thinking about a certain sniper idol when ye all talking about Morgan....
>>39270680You and me anon.
>>39270680There's a reason one of her bonuses was "Here comes the snow"
>>39270171>I'll keep it for now.Been awhile since i caught one of these live.
>>39270680We need a picture of Idol Morgan flying a Morgan. Preferably sniping things with the TLS.
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>39270171Sheesh, and after all this time the vote comes up tied. Looks like we'll have to roll this one off!1. Keep2. Sell
>>39270974DAMN YOU LOKI
>>39270974WhelpThere's the dice gods for you
>>39270974Okay, I think there might be some syntax issues....
>>39270974Uhh Merc there's a massive different between seeing what they have to offer and selling it.No one wants to sell it, just see what they have to offer so wut?
>>39270974Actually, scratch that, it narrowly goes for keep.Try not to put multiple options in your post! It just does nothing but make my job harder!
>>39270974What no. A lot of people just to see what was offered. Not to sell it.
>>39270974GOD DAMN YOU LOKI
>>39270974Merc what the hell, the vote isn't to sell it or not at all, we just wanted to see what they would give us, not actually give it to them.
>>39270993Thank goodness.Time for the Belkan Blizzard to ride again!
>>39270993Merc are you OK?
>>39270993Thank you Merc.Still THAT GODDAMN CAT.
>>39270993Thank fuck for that.
>>39270974>>39270993Merc, many of those posts saying that they want to see what Sam is offering, specifically noted that they only want to see what is being offered, but were still unwilling to sell the plane.If that option was meant to be a "SELL PLANE" option, then you shouldn't have left it open to being interpreted as just being open to seeing what is being offered in exchange.
>>39270993PHEW>>39270974DAMN YOU CAAAAT
>>39270993The suffering is real MercTHE SUFFERING HAS ONLY BEGUN
>>39270974...I swear this cat is in nearly every one of Merc's quests. Though I can't remember him popping up in PJ witches.
>>39271031>If that option was meant to be a "SELL PLANE" option, then you shouldn't have left it open to being interpreted as just being open to seeing what is being offered in exchange.Also should have worded it to be "SELL PLANE" rather than "see what they are offering", there is a massive difference between the two.
>>39270993MERC.Keep but do >>39270416Let the R&D have access to the plane as long as they dont break it.
>>39270171"I'd rather keep it for now." You frown. "But what exactly do you have, Quint?""Well, nothing that's quite the equivalent of the Morgan." The merchant shrugs as he hands you a list. "But we do have some very high end fighters that you might be interested in, even if I am reluctant to provide them free of charge..."SHOP LIST: http://pastebin.com/tSgSdjhx>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.>Actually, I'll trade it for (specify)>Other
>>39271043He has, several times.
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.
>>39271053>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.Might as well hang on to the museum piece
>>39271053>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.
>>39271053Typhoon - 45000: A very agile multirole plane that is extremely light for its size. Rafale - 50000: A highly capable multirole plane with both advanced weapon systems and avionics. F-35 Lightning II - 60000: Essentially the successor to the Falcon, the Lightning II is designed to be a nimble multirole with stealth capability. F-22 Raptor - 80000: The successor to the Eagle, the Raptor is the current pinnacle of mass produced fighter craft with both stealth capability and highly advanced avionic systems. F-23 Black Widow - 80000: A competing design for the Raptor, the Black Widow benefits from greater speed and stealth capability, but at the cost of maneuverability. PAK FA T-50 -80000: The counterpart to the Raptor, the T-50 likewise is designed with stealth in mind. It is more maneuverable than the Raptor, but has less electronic and stealth capability.Nope. Nope Nope Nope Nope~>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.But let the R&D have access to the plane. To get data and run tests but no tear downs.
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it."But thanks for showing me what you've got."
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.I will trust anon on this.
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.Unless you have Aurora.
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.>Other>R&D can have a look around it and scan it and all that, but nothing destructive, that plane WILL fly again.
>>39271053>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.I might have traded it for a Falken, but not for a plebeian plane.
>>39271053>Yeah, I'm still keeping itIf there was a Wyvern or CFA-44 then maybe. But in this case, no.
>>39271081The Morgan has too much potential to be thrown away, especially if we decide to go full Vault Hunter and gain control of a stocked vault.The equipment we find might very well be capable of repairing the Buddymachine
>>39271053>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.>OtherThey can still study it, just don't rip it apart.
>>39271076Just a warning, R&D will essentially tear the thing apart to study it. Once they're done the Morgan will be unsalvageable.
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.However much I wanted Widow-chan
>>39271111This.Now we need to assemble a party for dungeon crawling.Where is nearest Tavern?
>>39271120That's exactly what we said not to do, they can peek under the hood but nothing else.
>>39271120But cant we just restrict them to data download and scanning?
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.I still think it belongs in a museum.>>39271076>To get data and run tests but no tear downs.What tests? The thing can't fly anymore and it's shot to hell. Reverse engineering anything on it will require taking it apart.
>>39271053>>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.Not unless you dangle a Wyvern X-02 or a ADF-Falken in front of my face, and I do NOT see any of the two on that list.
>>39271130They've basically already done all they could with it without destroying it even further.
>>39271053>Yeah, I'm still keeping it.>>39271111mfw>>39271120JUST GIVE THE SERUM TO ME STRAIGHT HERR DOKTOR!!
>>39271120Merc, it is possible to study a plane and not wreck it. You might not get as much data that way, but it should be doable.
>>39271130>>39271133If Merc says it, it'll probably goNot much could have been salvaged intact, anyway-you don't just fall from half a mile above Avalon and not break a whole lot of systems in the crash
>>39271145Ah.Then nothing more then.No tear downs.We'll go find that wreck of the morgan we shot down and give it to them.
>>39271145Right then, they don't get to touch it anymore.
>>39271133There is literally NO computers left.>The frame is still miraculously intact, but pretty much everything else is trashedNo computers=no data
>>39271149Not really much data at all.
>>39271145>They've basically already done all they could with it without destroying it even further.You could've just said "R&D did initial scans and examinations on the way here and to determine what still worked", to show that the only things left are a complete teardown.Probably could have headed off some yelling if you had done that.
>>39271164cue macross frontier.
>>39271193Actually, I think that might have been mentioned last thread...
>>39271198>Frontier>Not glorious BOMBAAA!!>laughing Max Jenius.gif>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGpjUE7x4C4>>39271190We need to ring louder.
Man, can you imagine how awesome it'd be to be able to just tool around B7R and see all the neat shit that must be there? Downed fighters, abandoned bases... cripes. Makes me wish I could, hahahaa.
Anybody have that picture of a helicopter pilot looking at the camera with the caption "Get in losers We're going to do freedom"?I can't help but imagine a picture of General Treister (our FREEDOM loving boss) standing on a tank with the exact same caption.
>>39271120Morgan research leads to Falken, plus we get the YF-23 in the mean time. I'm okay with this.
>>39271373Original Widow when
>>39271373For reference>>39271393Shipsluts when?Seriously, I kinda missed them
>>39271425Keep an eye out on planefag's twitter, anon.
>>39271425Here's the shipslut archives:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kant-O-Celle%20QuestBe advised, latest runs have introduced us to the cutest little ball of murder yet. Sammy
>>39271485I was there for thatI'm just bitching about no shipsluts this week
>>39271053>>Actually, I'll trade it for (specify)F-22Then we challenge a certain Alpha wing member to a rematch!
>>39271509No anon, and we've already decided, the next plane we buy will be the YF-23
>>39271509Bit late, shit taste, not even on the right research branch...the list of mistakes you've made just keeps on growing
>>39271509Wrong plane, and also why would we challenge Wolf to a rematch? We already kicked his ass with our Phantom.
>>39271220>not wanting to get the transient facts>not wanting to feel the info highhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0rxpQI0ZbY
>>39271552Not quite a thorough kicking tho.I am up for another round.And Karla in XF-23A vs Wolf in F-22 match, why you wouldn't want that?
>>39271581>XF-23AIf we could kick him in an F-4, we'd thrash him in a YF-23
>>39271580Sharon Apple is worst vocaloid.Though Information High is a great track
>>39271053"I think I'll still hold onto it for now. Who knows, maybe we'll stumble onto that Morgan factory OB seems to have?" You joke weakly."Well, it's your choice." Sam shrugs. "We'll keep it in the hangar for now. R&D might come in and do a few tests, but I'll tell them not to touch it otherwise.""Thanks.""Hey, Karla!" Lara waves at you as she enters the hangar. "You planning to start flying that Morgan around?""I wish." You sigh. "Nobody knows how to fix the damn thing, so it's just a useless hunk of junk at this point.""Aw, that's a shame." Lara shakes her head. "But hey, don't worry, Smokey can fix anything!""I'm sure he can, given enough time and money, at least one of which I definitely do not have.""Ah, cheer up, we'll find a way!" Lara slaps you on the back. "Anyways, I'm gonna go check up on my Eagle. It got a little banged up on that last fight and I want to see if Smokey hammered out all the kinks! Wanna come with?"You briefly think about it. You didn't really take any damage from that attempted OB ambush, so all your Eagle has suffered was the normal wear and tear. However, you didn't really want Lara flying around alone, even if it was in friendly airspace.On the other hand, you could see Sam starting to leave the hangar. If you wanted to tell her about the Vaults, now was the time...>Go talk to Sam.>Back up Lara on her patrol.>Other
What part on an airplane do you consider "sexy"?Is it the missile racks? the curvy cockpit, or those long, strong thrusters? Post a pic of a plane that looks sexy to you and type in the part on the plane that turns you on. Also, what parts on an airplane turns Karla on?GO!
>>39271638>Go talk to Sam.

>>39271774Anon, I have this little hawk here looking for a wingmate and I think she's the perfect match for you.
>>39271928You too huh.
>>39271892honestly, I kinda like the look of the F-35 from sideways or front. looks cool.but unfortunately for you, F-22 looks cool from all angles.your argument is invalid.
>>39271950and Widow-chan looks even better from every angle
>>39271892>Implying they areAlso, all those jagged lines and fucking teal highlights.Teal.Highlights.Seriously, who designed this, a fucking teenager?
>>39271937oh.oh god.why did I forget to mention the nighthawk.
>>39271950F-35 is also a beauty from all angles.>>39271962fite me
>>39271928>>39271949Might I interest you in some fluffy, then?
>>39271791Don't even startAfter Thunder-blockhead fucked up thread 118, it's been over
>>39271960Actually, Widow's back side is the best view.
>>39271928you and me both. Though instead of being sick, I'm being bogged down by a squad of College Final exams/projects.

>>39272020Enjoy whats left of school.You'll wish you were back in there soon enough.Then again im posting from work soooo. Its good being IT incharge.
>>39272042My backlog is enormous now.For now i hope i can get something for SW'89 night, then that MAHOU SHOUJO BRRRRT AMY.Also thinking some 'bonding' between Julie and Carly with P-kun disapprove on background
>>39272054>but then again I'm used to the F-22's smooth yet cut-like-corners bottom.I'm a F-22 guy too, I understand completely.
>>39271638"Yeah, sure, I'll come along." You nod. "Hey Smokey, is my Eagle ready to go?""Fueled and armed!" Your crew chief nods. "And no holes, either. Make sure you keep it that way!""Yeah yeah, I'll keep that in mind!" You chuckle. You head over to the lockers to suit and you turn to Lara. "So where are Lilian and Amy at?""Doing other stuff I guess." Lara shrugs. "Think Lilian went to the comms center to catch up with her family, and Amy is teaching the Butterflies how to make proper attack runs."You cannot even begin to imagine Amy as a teacher, much less the Butterflies being obedient students."Come on, let's not waste time!" Lara says excitedly and trots out of the hangar, with you following right behind.---"All right, girls." Loki says as both you and Lara get your Eagles up in the air. "This is just going to be a standard patrol mission. Nothing fancy. Stay within our airspace and try not to pick any fights with the other corps. OB are of course engage on sight. Is that clear?""Crystal." Both you and Lara affirm."Good. I'll keep an eye out for bogies. Call me if you need me." "Ten bucks we get jumped by something he doesn't even see at all." Lara chuckles once the comm line is cut."Why is that even a bet?" You laugh. You then check your tactical map. Your plotted course kept you well within Atlas' territory. However, you saw that the coordinates for the Vault your Uncle knew of weren't too far off. Just a minor detour and you'd be right over it. Loki probably wouldn't even notice the course deviation. However, it brought you perilously close to Dahl's claimed territory. Heading their by air might be a bit risky...>Just stay on course.>Make the detour.>Other

>>39272100"Hey, Stripes, you mind if we take a slight detour?" You ask."Sure, why not?" Lara says in agreement. "Mind telling where it is?""Yeah, I'm sending the location on the datalink."

A no-nonsense gal with one thing in mind: to get in, get shit done, get out, and get a cold one.She is not flashy, she doesn't need to be! Her record speaks for itself. She doesn't need to expose her curves like those 5th-gen sluts!
>>39272314>>Tell Lara about the Vault.At least tell our wingmate that this is classified stuff.
>>39272314>Tell Lara about the Vault.
>>39272297That's because they're Stealth aircraft.You're not supposed to know about them until chunks of ISIS scum start falling back to earth.

You can't deny the sexiness of this girl's smooth, plump, radar dish and gorgeous wingspan with the power of 4 turbofan military grade engines. strolling down the runway for the boys in the yard on those nice strong landing gears.

>>39272314"Well uh, I want to see if there's any evidence of this old Belkan War weapons cache. They call them Vaults." You say. "But uh, this is pretty secret, so don't tell anybody outside the squadron, okay?""Lips. Sealed." Lara assures you. "Oooooooh, we're on a treasure hunt! This makes things a million times more exciting now!"Well, she was enthusiastic about it as always. Now this just left the issue of how to approach. Going in high meant that you would be relatively safe from any potential ground fire short of SAM sites, and would allow you to loiter for a bit to get a better view of the area. However, you'd be easier to detect on radar. You could go in low under radar, but down that low you wouldn't have a lot of time to check out the site before having to move on. >Go in high.>Go in low.>Other

Whoops, sorry for that delay.>>39273073"Sorry, Loki, we just thought we saw something dirtside." You say. You guess you'll have to come back later. "We're returning to original course.""All right, just checking." Loki says. "I'm also picking up increased comm chatter on Dahl frequencies, so be careful.""Radar contacts?" Lara asks a bit too eagerly. "None so far.""Aw, ok."As you pull up back to cruising altitude, you survey the area as well as check your radar. Since you're on patrol, you keep it on since you want the other corps to know that you're out there watching. You return to your originally planned route, skirting the border between the Atlas and Dahl held territories."Wild Cards, be advised, I'm picking up heavy activity near you." Loki warns. "Looks like a major furball going on.""Anything we should be concerned about?" You ask."No Atlas or Artemis tagged planes. Looks like they're either fighting off a Hyperion or OB raid." Loki says. "I strongly advise you to steer clear.""Oooooooh, but that's a target rich environment!" Lara squeals. "C'mon, Valk! Just one pass! Pleeeeaaaase?">Nope. We're not going near that.>Okay, one pass.>Other

>>39273989"Fine, one pass." You sigh. "Then we're out.""Yesssss!" Lara cheers."Well, good luck, girls. Don't say I didn't warn you." Loki says. "Send you the radar data now."You see a number of target indicators wink on on your HUD, showing a mass of planes twisting and twirling in the air. You squint your eyes, trying to identify the attackers."Hey, wait a minute." Lara grunts. "Those don't look like OB planes."Sure enough, it looked to be the dark green Dahl planes up against bright yellow Hyperion ones. It was apparently a spat between corps. However, you wonder what the hell could possibly bring Hyperion this deep into enemy territory."Oh maaaaan, so many juicy targetsssss!"

>>39274326You dive down to the deck, literally right under the noses of the battling corp planes. You bank your Eagle slightly to get a better look at the facility they're battling over. You can see what looks to be a huge, open pit mine. However, right down the pit, you could see a set of thick blast doors.With a faded Belkan flag pattern emblazoned on them.They were fighting over a Vault!From what you could gather, it looked like Hyperion was trying to drop bunker busters down the pit to destroy the Vault, no doubt to keep it out of Dahl's hands, while Dahl was naturally trying to protect it.You're reasonably sure that if you told Irons about this, he'd definitely send a force out to seize it.>Keep Hyperion from destroying the Vault.>Help Dahl protect the Vault.>Just leave the two to go at it.>Other
>>39274509>mfw super late
>>39274532>Keep Hyperion from destroying the Vault.

>>39274663no.bad anon.Artemis gets the vault.and we get a working Morgan.

OK, remember something Uncle said back in thread 26?>Belka war technology was years ahead of its time. There were weapons in the works that make even the V weapons look like firecrackers. None of it can ever be used.We promised him we would destroy the vaults. So,>>39274532>Help Hyperion destroy the Vault.Don't disappoint Uncle.
>>39274532Uhh some clarification on those two identical options would be good Merc
>>39274532I would prefer to blow it up. No idea what the Belkans stored there, but i also want parts for our plane.>OtherCall in EVERYTHING
>>39274707Remember how we need a vault to get our Morgan flying again?We can blow them up once we've got our superplane flying again, until then we keep them out of everyone elses hands.
>>39274532>destroy the Vault
>>39274734I don't give a fuck about the Morgan. Do you trust Dahl or Atlas with any kind of superweapon that may be in there?
>>39274734You think Atlas will give a fuck? Answer is no. They'll want everything in that vault. >b-but we can keep it a s-secret anon!Bullshit you can.
>>39274678>>39274690>>39274691Implying our employers already know about what we're doing here, and that side-quest our uncle gave us. I'll wager that OB, together with the vaults is being funded by someone with money and influence.
>>39274707>>39274734also, we keep ATLAS out of this. secretly.ARTEMIS is small enough, a vault or two won't make much of a difference in a global scale.ATLAS, on the other hand...>>39274748of course not. duh.we tell no one except for artemis.>>39274754>Bullshit you canthen what about our morgan? artemis didn't do nuthin about it?
>>39274748Yes, even if something terrible happens it'll still be entertaining to us, the readers. That's way more interesting than us literally blowing the mystery box up.
>>39274532>>OtherCall in allies to take the vault for ourselves.Our uncles advice to destroy the vault is meaningless if others are already being plundered - or he was on the side of Dahl - removing competitor's access to vault technologies, equally possible for a spy.IF this war is going to be fought with balkan supertech, then our company needs to maintain an edge. If we want to maintain secrecy, well...... our teammate is rich as fuck and can probably privately excavate it and keep it under wraps.
>>39274532>Seize the vault ourselves!
>>39274766>I'll wager that OB, together with the vaults is being funded by someone with money and influence.They're flying fucking prototype fighters. I think this is a more than safe bet
>>39274766>Implying our employers already know about what we're doing herewe'll just tell artemis we found a mystery box.also leave a note to them, 'don't tell anyone else, including atlas'

>>39274992Yep. This the first game for the third and final part of the SRW Z series, by the way. Big O is a mainstay.
>>39274957well duh, that's what I'm saying.we tell Atlas nothing about the vaults.Artemis is weak enough that a vault or two to them won't make a difference in global scale.refer to >>39274975speaking of which,>>39274975>Call for backup>Inform artemis of furball>Go in for combat run, >yell at everyone about being in area B7R being a no man's zone, and to prepare to defend themselves>Get our apprentice in the air, and also salvage teams en route, expecting to grab her morgan and the vault in one go>Did i miss anything?>yell at everyone about being in area B7R being a no man's zone, and to prepare to defend themselvesslow down. If we were to fight we should only take out attackers that's going for the vault.once the furball dies down, we strike with reinforcements while salvage team.>>39274984you never know, doesn't hurt to check, right?

Whoops! I kinda screwed up on the options there. It was supposed to be to help destroy the vault!>>39274532You decide to radio in for backup. After all, this was waaaaaaaaaaaay beyond what you could handle yourself."Loki, it looks like they're fighting over some kind of old, Belkan facility." You report. "Can you relay it to the Pillar and see if we can't get some backup here?" You ask. "Roger that, I'll send word right away. "Loki says. "And watch out, you've got inbound!""Yeah, I see them." You nod as you catch sight of four planes headed straight to you. A pair of MiG-21 Fishbeds and a pair of F-20 Tigersharks. They had to have some serious balls coming at you with such outdated planes."Stripes, you still alive out there?" You ask"Yeah, tangling with a couple Hyp planes! Give me eight seconds!" Lara grunts.Well, you could always just go ahead and engage your attackers. They were in pretty crappy planes, so it shouldn't be too difficult. On the other hand, they did have numbers advantage on you, and having Lara backing you up would be a big help.>Attack your pursuers.>Avoid them until you can link up with Lara.>Other

You instinctively try to dive below them but they explode, showering your plane with shrapnel.>-3 hp>9 hp remains"Damn, not bad." You seethe as the Tigershark pulls away to renew the attack run."Wild Cards, I just received new orders from HQ." Loki announces. "You are to fall back immediately. Atlas is sending a response force to relieve you. Return to base.""What!? But we're right here!" Lara exclaims."Those are the orders." Loki says sternly.Damn, so it looked like Irons wanted to seize the Vault for himself. Of course he wouldn't want third parties like you getting involved.>Orders are orders.

>>39275535>Screw orders. You can't let anybody recover this vault.well we did promise our uncle we would protect the vaults.

>>39275535>Orders are orders. Leave Atlas to handle this.How about we leave, wait until the enemy is worn down and vulnerable. THEN we send 4 Nosturfatus after them with ADMMs.After that our resource acquisition unit goes in, knicks everything that can vaguely be fitted to/used to repair a Morgan, then blows the whole place to buts.
>>39275568Yeah, but Atlas is probably coming first.
>>39275573>So what was that about "we can keep it a secret from Atlas"?we don't know for sure if they really know it yet, since they're just sending reinforcements to their borders.tell them we can handle it.>>39275590how do you know?>>39275588>After that our resource acquisition unit goes in, knicks everything that can vaguely be fitted to/used to repair a Morgan, then blows the whole place to buts.dude, it looks like the race is currrently on versus Atlas and Artemis. also, the butterflies are under Atlas. no dice.

>>39275535>"Wild Cards, I just received new orders from HQ." Loki announces. "You are to fall back immediately. Atlas is sending a response force to relieve you. Return to base."Whatever happened to telling Artemis and not Atlas?
>>39275535You remember the promise you made to Uncle, and honestly, you weren't sure what was in that Vault and what Irons was planning to use it for. Even though you were working for him, his motivations weren't all that different from Dahl's and Hyperion's. No, you had to destroy it.Fortunately, your Strike Eagle modifications allowed you to carry bombs in addition to your extra missiles. You believe that if you could get a good enough angle, you could drop some bombs directly into the shaft. Even if you couldn't destroy the Vault, at the very least you could cave it in and seal it off."Cover me, Stripes!" You grunt as you climb to get a suitable attack vector. "Keep that Tigershark off me!""Roger that!" Lara affirms.Fortunately for you, nobody else seems to be engaging you, consider the furball going on all around. However, there are a few close midair collisions. You finally get into a position to dive bomb the mineshaft.>roll 1d10 (AtG roll. You need a 4 or lower for maximum effect!)

>>39275692Artemis is being contracted by Atlas. If someone decides that a rather well-known employee of Artemis might be working against them, however indirectly, they might cut the contract, and that wouldn't be good for Artemis or its reputation.

>>39275716So think of how many super planes there could be!Think of it, rows upon rows of Morgans, Wyverns, Black widows, Raptors and many more!

Alright, so we gotta have a list of people we can absolutely trust here with our personal mission.Right now I'm thinking of Wildcards and maybe Jager.
>>39275744>Just another day at the office.
>>39275788>>39275787>>39275794too late.>>39275796you got the numbers upside down.in ACQ, lower numbers are better, 1 making crit success and 10 a crit fail respectively.>>39275808I dunno how modern aircraft can handle intensive bullet hell fire.unless we're AC:AH, grazing shots will slowly kill us.>>39275812>Wildcardsunder Atlas.Jager yes.
>>39275818I meant the rest of our flight, not our company (Artemis). Not sure if we can trust Sam as well.
>>39275747And again, you miss! You can only imagine Amy just looking on in disapproval at your poor showing at ground attack. Suddenly, two missiles streak past your Eagle, causing you to bank in surprise. The Tigershark swoops past, having failed its attack run on you."Sorry, Valk! This guy is really damn slippery!" Lara apologizes."Don't worry, let's get out of here." You grunt, turning your plane back to Atlas territory and hitting afterburners. "Too dangerous staying here on our own.""Awwww, okay." Lara sighs as she hits afterburners too. Thankfully, neither the Dahl nor the Hyperion planes opt to chase you, considering they were still busy battling each other. "So I wonder what that was all about?" Lara asks once you both are a safe distance away."That was one of those Vaults I was talking about earlier." You say. "The corps out here are fighting to the death over them. It's were OB is getting all their shiny new stuff.""Ooooooh." Lara nods. "I guess that's why they're sending such a huge force."You look up to see not only the Butterflies, but at least an entire air wing heading for the uncovered Vault. That had to be literally almost all of Atlas' air assets. Irons sure wanted that Vault very badly. And just behind, you could see a number of transport helicopters, no doubt troops to secure the site. "Think they'll get it? Lara asks."I don't know." You sigh. You're not sure if you even want them to succeed. "Let's get back. We have planning to do.">And that's it for tonight! As always, next thread is next week. This Saturday's HEIST is going to be delayed a bit due to dinner plans, but we should still be able to run! And don't forget PJ Witches on Sunday!
>>39275812Telling Jager is probably a bad idea, we don't know if he's sympathetic to OB. Maybe we could talk with him about them sometime.
>>39275815>Max your thrusters, pilot! We. Are. BOUNCING!
>>39275796Atlas plant pls.>>39275818Wild Cards is the name of our squadron, you're thinking of the Butterflies.

>>39275827Thanks for the run Merc, see you on Sunday.
>>39275827Fucking hell this thread was a complete failure.
>>39275827shouldn't we at least tell the butterflies to watch out while flying by?>>39275834>>39275838yeah. I know. I kinda had a brainfart.
>>39275846I wouldn't say that. We blew up some Tigersharks, and credits are credits. Sure the vault thing didn't work out but our luck had to dry at some stage.
>>39275846Well, you can't win them all!
Maybe with some convincing, the Butterflies can be turned to our side...>>39275846I see it more as "Story developing". Every hero needs a point where they're at the lowest point.
>>39275850>The healthy Belkan mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking it's her last day on earth. But I think that's a gift, not a curse.>Sir, we've captured the Vault!>Good, that's one less loose end.
>>39275846Hey, on the bright side, maybe the Butterflies will get some shiny new Morgans out of it!
>>39275860>Remember. No Osean.
>>39275871But they work for Atlas. It may not be such a 'bright side' down the line.
>>39275857>Every hero needs a point where they're at the lowest point.We're not at that stage yet anon. Not nearly. This has been the worst we've performed so far but I've little doubt there will be failures ahead that will outstrip this by some margin.
>>39275875>Remember, no Yuktobanianftfy
>>39275876Nobody ever said we had to stick with Artemis!
>>39275871Umm...The original Morgan design is kind of 20 years outdated by the "present day"
>>39275890Belka is Strangereal's Nazi Germany, their technology was way ahead of its time. Morgans are just prototype Falkens anyway.
>>39275883You are a traitor to mother Belka, you cur!
>>39275860Mr.Irons was a belkan!?>>39275854it doesn't matter in the end. vaults going into some major company like Atlas WILL cause significant power changes.and Atlas is THE company. one and only.>>39275871>>39275883nobody will know if we pissed off Atlas and is going against them, we'll eventually have to go against Butterflies flying super-superplanes eventually.I believe that Merc is one of those QMs that pulls these types of dilemmas.speaking of which, can we do disabling shots like back in AC:Z?
>>39275901>I believe that Merc is one of those QMs that pulls these types of dilemmas.Well yeah, he teased it with an image of Destroyer Division 6 slowly getting wiped out many threads back. He's waiting for the right moment to incur maximum suffering.
>>39275827This is why that fucking stupid mechanic of 10's erasing the best roll on a D10 needs to go, its a fucking 30% change to just invalidate all other rolls.A bombing run, especially after we zero in, should be fucking trivial, and yet because it's left to the dice, we get fucked over on something we can do with our eyes closed.Merc you could at least introduce some kind of Ace Points like Star Power or something for those moments because its fucking sad watching us have a goddamn stroke because of the retarded dice.
>>39275919>he teased it with an image of Destroyer Division 6 slowly getting wiped out many threads backWell then. We should embrase the loss that may or may not be done by our hands. No loathing about it, if it comes down to it, we have to. But disable if we can, not murder.Unless the furball is too intense fot that mercy, in which case...
>>39275854>and credits are creditsWhich we haven't got yet.This entire thread has been pointless, actually its been worse then that, its done nothing but set us back.We would have been better off if we didn't even take off in this thread, we would have accomplished more.This thread has been a fucking sad joke.
>>39275857It's not a low point it was anon being stupid and greedy and the dice punishing them.
>>39275901>we'll eventually have to go against Butterflies flying super-superplanes eventually.No we won't, that will only happen if Merc loses his mind and all his talent.That's the most cliched shitty move he could pull and he's better then that.
>>39275943indeed but NO people had to hunt for the vault and disobey orders (which no one really noticed thankfully), and the ever so "functioning" /tg/ dice went against them.
>>39275955I wouldn't be so sure; conidering how many quests he's be running....and he did reuse the same "confession after near death experience" plot device in both VMQ and VMQ2, which irked some fans slightly (if he did it again, there would be rage)if anything what would happen is that merc would leave it to the dice (which he seems to like alot) which would then screw us over.
>>39275856Except we didn't get ahead with anything this entire thread let alone winning anything, hell the only things we got out of it will be the cash from the fishbeds and tigersharks, which MIGHT cover the cost of the bombs we failed with.We would be better off overall if you didn't even run it today, thats how shit this thread was.
>>39275883Yeah no fuck that for a joke, we're taking Artemis and fucking up Irons with it when he inevitably goes full HAWX, you NEVER go full HAWX.
>>39275966ammo repairs fuel that all costs us nothing
>>39275966>this much whiningCalm down dude
>>39275927Unless the thread players agree on it, I don't think we can. I gave up already knowing this.meanwhile the QM is going to enjoy our delicious tears.>>39275944>anon being stupidAtlas having that vault is bad.why do you think our uncle told us about the vaults in the first place?>>39275955I sincerely hope so anon.>>39275966We can do anything in hindsight.sure it was a terrible thread, but it's the dice's fault.
Next time: vault hunting. No telling Atlas.Seriously, I'm fine with notifying control if we find one, but tell them that we're destroying it if they tell Atlas.
>>39275919>He's waiting for the right moment to incur maximum suffering.If he is then he's getting worse at QM'ing with his age.Only retards who can't QM properly or don't know how to tell a story need to fall back on MUH SUFFERING faggotry.
>>39275955Former comrades being forced to fight each other and former enemies becoming allies have both been done in AC before, no matter which option he picks it's still going to be cliche. If he wanted to avoid cliches, Atlas would be totally legit and would just use the technology from the vaults to make money, but you and I both know that they're going to flip the fuck out and try to start a new world order.
>>39275978Exactly, just like the rewards for taking out shitty planes
>>39275982>Unless the thread players agree on it, I don't think we can. I gave up already knowing this.We already agreed on it early on and Merc didn't listen to us, and several times we've asked for this when it causes issues like this, when it makes us completely incompetent for no reason, and he still ignores it and our requests for it.We've asked for it and discussed it at least 4 times in these threads and have yet to receive a single reply from Merc on it.
>>39275982I mean the whole vault hunting trip as a whole instead of say telling Sam about the vaults and going for the long term. Instead anon rushed towards the air in hopes of finding a vault so they can get a shiny new plane.>>39275984His heart isn't as much into it if he's fucking off in the middle of a thread to play games with someone. That's generally a no-no in quests that have somehow increased in frequency.Seriously if you're gonna do that, just cancel the session. It's better than the session suffering because of it.
>>39276005>His heart isn't as much into it if he's fucking off in the middle of a thread to play games with someone. That's generally a no-no in quests that have somehow increased in frequency.>Seriously if you're gonna do that, just cancel the session. It's better than the session suffering because of it.That I could not agree more on.
>>39276005>His heart isn't as much into it if he's fucking off in the middle of a thread to play games with someone. That's generally a no-no in quests that have somehow increased in frequency.Yeah that was just fucking bullshit and poor form on his part. I've come to expect much better from him and instead we're left with this shambles of a disappointment.
>>39275989>but you and I both know that they're going to flip the fuck out and try to start a new world order.And that's really fucking stupid and annoying, hell it just makes the story another boring trite example of the other countless other ripoff "PMC is friendly but then stabs you in the back for world domination" hack pieces.
>>39276005>His heart isn't as much into it if he's fucking off in the middle of a thread to play games with someone. That's generally a no-no in quests that have somehow increased in frequency.>>Seriously if you're gonna do that, just cancel the session. It's better than the session suffering because of it.I agree wholeheartedly, pun intended.
>>39276005>It's better than the session suffering because of it.The session 'suffered' because you had shitty dice rolls. I suffer after this because reading you sperging the fuck out is annoying.
>>39276005>>39276009>>39276011>>39276025It was a shitty thing to do, but I don't really blame him for wanting to do something else with his time. He spends at least 5 hours every Friday/Saturday/Sunday doing these things, and that's ignoring whatever prep time he puts into it during the week assuming he isn't totally winging these threads. He should at least take a week off every now and then.
>>39276044I'd understand if he wanted to take a break, if anything he needs to take one. All that constant running takes its toll.There's good reason why most QMs only run one quest and once a week at that.
>>39276044Yeah, sure do that. Take a week off. Let us know. Don't fucking run a bullshit session where you fuck off and play vidya If life calls cancel session. Majority of the people here will understand.
>>39276043Anon we've always had shitty rolls, this system overall has always been extremely mediocre, considering that theres a flat 30% chance to lose your highest roll for no reason, and that's not taking into account how the seed generator clusters results when you roll within a short time period, so if you roll 3 dice in 3 separate posts at the same time, you end up with the same result in those three posts.When you have a system using dice as small as D10's and lots of rolls being called in posts in such a short time, the system gives you garbage, like we've seen time and time again.The session suffered from shitloads of other issues least of which were the expectedly crap dice.
>>39276044I've been noticing that lately his posts seem to have less content in them, are getting shorter and longer apart, and he's becoming less descriptive and detailed in his writing, making more mistakes and reusing the same words more within paragraphs and sentences, more tell and less show, in the last couple months. Hopefully it's not a permanent thing and his quality goes back up soon.
>>39276061This is literally one thread where we've had it bad and all the rest the rolls have been pretty okay.You are flipping out over not winning, not because of "shitloads of other issues". You are "that guy". You are the worst player.
>>39276071Good to know I'm suddenly a chunk of this quests playerbase.>This is literally one thread where we've had it bad and all the rest the rolls have been pretty okay.That's a great selective memory you've got there, you should probably go and reread the archives to help reinforce your false memory of events even further.
>>39276081You should stop being such a sperglord over losing one objective and reread the archives for all the crazy awesome shit we've pulled off against the odds, lest you out yourself for barely paying attention to the quest you are screeching like a stupid faggot about yet again.
>>39276094>one objectiveIt's a hell of a lot more than one objective anon, it's THE objective.
>>39276099If this one objective actually breaks the quest, I would be shocked.Merc's a better QM than you are a reader: the quest will continue forward and we might have to deal with some shit because we failed today, but we are not DEAD, this is not the WORST FUTURE, we have not been locked out of any waifus. Chill the fuck out, holy shit.
>>39276099not him.But you still raging over failing.
>>39276094It's more the lines of A)Missing a chance to tell Sam about the vaults thus set up a plan for them behind atlas' backB)Found a vault but ultimately couldn't do much of anything about it.C)More or less went against orders (which could have been bad news considering mercenary groups don't look kindly upon their employees going against their cilents), Luckily things were so busy and the fact we failed to blow it up that no one really knew about the disobediance.All in all we spent about 7 hours (no thanks to Merc playing a game while running) in real time for not much of anything
>>39276127Cry fucking more. Merc's a person too, he's allowed to do whatever the fuck he wants behind the scenes.Anon voted the way they did, the dice rolled the way they did, and now YOUR job as the player is to actually deal with it next thread. Bitching about it here like a little shit does not change ANY of that.I certainly hope you didn't do anything else while reading the thread, that your attention was only focused here and nowhere else, ever. That would be the only excuse you have for whining this hard about things.Fuckssake, 749 posts, 130 images, 59 players over a 7 hour run. That you think your time is somehow more valuable than his, that he volunteers willingly to entertain your ungrateful ass, makes me wonder why he even bothers when readers like you are around to shit things up when they don't get spoonfed everything they want.
>>39276158It's VERY bad form to go and do that while running a quest, it'd be far better if he canceled tonight's thread.But go ahead and continue white knighting and encouraging bad QM practices.
>>39275856Can we please learn a new pilot skill along with our Knight Style, that lets 1's have the priority over 10's, instead of the vis versa?Because fuck this luck and we should have a chance to learn to be a more veteran pilot after the stunts we have pulled off.
>>39276180Mind you, he has been doing this sort of thing all the time, this is only an issue because you are angry you didn't get your way.As always, there's that ONE Anon who:1) Whines about the votes that didn't go his way.2) Whines about the dice ruining everything3) Whines that the QM is somehow the badguy for going WITH Anon's decisions and the dice rolls.You are that guy that can't stand even the slightest bit of failure. Why do you even bother playing games like this if you're that averse to the mere possibility of failure?
>>39276199Honestly, using same mechanic as CIMQ where we can bank successful roll for future use will help so much.
I can't believe this. I just hop on to /tg/ after my long-ass late shift to find people bitching in the new Ace Combat quest. But not about the obsolescence of the A-10 or bug-plagued F-35. Instead they're busting the chops of a guy who drops hours out of his day week in and week out. Merc isn't some thinking-machine, super-computer. He just a guy. Maybe he thought he was running on all cylinders when he started the thread or at least thought he could power through the night. Maybe an irl friend became more important for a minute. Hell if I know, I'm just a lurker.I'm not gonna spout some bullshit about leaving the thread if you're unhappy. But after 30 good sessions, Merc doesn't have to prove anything to me.
>>39276204>implying there's just one person upset this time.Great like we needed someone with delusions.
>>39276205>>39276199oh god yes please upvote this forever until the thread falls off the board.
>>39276215Two angry faggots out of now 60 posters, yes, a staggering majority agree with you.
>>39276214I'm not talking about dropping it, but rather it's a sign that cracks are starting to show from all the quest running he's been doing. He's done how many quests in the last year or so? 4? 5? Most sane people would take a break or slow down, not toss more on his plane.>>39276068 mentioned what appears to be lesser signs of what I mentioned.>>39276225One delusional white knight out of 60, I'm sure you're having delusions of people supporting you.
>>39276227I'm not making any claims that I have tons of support, you're the one saying that there are other people as salty and retarded as you are acting right now.At least pick up a trip so I can filter your posts.
>>39276236I could say the exact same for you. And I wasn't this pissed until you had to go charging at me like I was some goddamn windmill.
>>39276199That would be great, a crit success should always beat a crit fail and honestly I have no clue why its the opposite here.It's really weird seeing as in every other quest Merc has run and every other quest that uses overriding crits, crit successes has always beaten crit fails
>>39276250Mind you, this is only an issue because you didn't get handed a win, and you are so fucking dumb you think that this ONE thread has determined EVERYTHING and now we are fucked.How the hell do you even keep playing Merc's quests when you don't even have faith in him?
>>39276265says the guy who's grossly simplifying things and ignoring the fact that Merc more or less seemed to have half-assed this thread.
>>39276258>>39276218>>39276199Yeah I completely agree.>Natural 1s will always succeed regardless of modifiers or skill rating. Natural 10s will negate your best roll, even if it is a Natural 1.Should be changed to:Natural 1s will always succeed regardless of modifiers or skill rating. Natural 10s will negate your best roll, EXCEPT if it is a Natural 1.It makes no fucking sense to have 10's delete 1's.
>>39276284That and implementing AP or SP or whatever you want to call it is sorely needed.
>>39276258not really.Most of Merc's quest always have crit fail overriding crit success, but CIMQ has a mechanic that allow us to bank the crit success we got to null any critfail or bad roll.All in all, goddamnit people, stop whining.
>>39276284>>39276278>Literally campaigning in thread for the QM to just hand victories to players because they are buttmad about not getting the win this ONE time. Out of all the other times we have pulled off utterly insane shit with this system.Get the fuck out.
>>39276296>Excusing the QM for basicaly fucking off to do something else, halfassing the thread.>Pretending that the /tg/ dice aren't broken and they seem more likely to screw us over than bless us.No you.
>>39276296Anon that is not even close to handing out victories and the amount of times we've had 10's override 1's has been more numerous than the amount of times we've had 1's go through successfully.It would be like in every other Merc Quest except 1's cancelled out 20's, which is fucking retarded.>>39276292>Most of Merc's quest always have crit fail overriding crit successUhh no they don't, they've never had that anon... EVERY quest Merc has run has had crit successes override crit fails, and unless there were things like Star Power, getting a crit success was the ONLY way to cancel out a crit fail.How the fuck could you get that backwards when it's always been this way except for this quest?
>>39276305>This much entitlementAll you do is bitch and vote and bitch when you don't get your way.
>>39276292>Most of Merc's quest always have crit fail overriding crit successU wot m8? Did you hit your head really hard anon? Because it's always been the exact opposite of that...
>>39276292No Merc's always had 20's cancel out 1's anon, he's never had it the other way around, don't know where you would get that impression, this quest has been the experiment for having 10's cancel 1's and the only thing it's done is aggravate everyone for no reason other than just to be different.
>>39276292>Most of Merc's quest always have crit fail overriding crit success,Uhh nope, you got that the wrong way around there, Nat 20s have always been the only way to beat a Nat 1 without SP in CIMQ.
>>39276332It doesn't help he seems to like dice systems way too much. Thank goodness no one has a trait that makes 9s count as 10s or such.
>>39276305>>Excusing the QM for basicaly fucking off to do something else, halfassing the thread.Its not like he doing this everytime, give him a chance.
>>39276341Yeah, he seems to have dice just for the sake of having dice WAAAY too much, to the point of making mundane tasks and things we've previously done without trouble be a nail-biting experience because dice made us have a stroke.Dice are meant to serve as a tool for the story, not the story as a tool serving the dice.
>>39276344NO DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND IT'S HAPPENED ONCE MY FAITH IS BROKEN QUEST DROPPED (EXCEPT I WILL KEEP BITCHING ABOUT NOT GETTING WHAT I WANT UNTIL I DO GET WHAT I WANT, THEN I WILL KEEP FOLLOWING THE QUEST WHILE STILL CLAIMING I DROPPED IT BECAUSE OF THIS THREAD)
>>39276352Ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
>>39276344if he just canceled or ended the thread early to do so, I doubt people would be so annoyed, though truth be told some of the anger is at anon for making stupid decisions... though more isn't said because it's anon.>>39276352 Isn't me at all.>>39276349Indeed, particularly critfails in things they shouldn't be in. I believe that during a bad dice period in VMQ1, jokes were made about how stupid the critfails were. This was forgotten as the dice trends changed to something very positive.Then we had that 'fun' bit with Falynn where she kept on hitting 2s (which was the same as 1s)
>>39276355This literally would not even be an issue if Anon could actually take a setback like a well adjusted individual instead of sperging simply because now we don't get to win this one thread.
>>39276384why are you intentionally ignoring relying on bad /tg/ dice, obvious half-assing of things and anon stupidity.It's not even about winning but rather having something productive come about from the thread.But you'll just lump this in as "wahhh I didn't get ot win" like you always do. You're one of those "suffering is good writing" faggots, aren't ya?
>>39276392I'm one of those "Failure at one juncture doesn't immediately mean we're doomed forever" faggots. There's a difference, but I don't think you have the capacity to understand that.
>>39276392>>39276405Both of you shut the fuck up already.
>>39276405I'm not thinking it's a doomed forever thing, in fact I think we escaped the worse case scenario as no one noticed Karia disobeying orders and actively stabotaging something Artmetis' cilent wants.Atlas getting the vault could be a setback, though it's too soon to tell how bad.It doesn't change the fact that this thread was absurdly unproductive. I'm starting to wish we never found that plane as if we didn't the morons among the readers wouldn't be so distracted.It also doesn't change the fact that A) Merc's starting to slip and B) He likes the dice too damn much.
>>39276448Merc didn't force anon to make the choices they made, nor did he will the dice to go against us.This is the only reason you or that other faggot even care as much as you do right now.
>>39276448>the morons among the readersGet over yourself.
Holy shit.what the fuck happened here.
Or maybe he had the game paused in the background for something to do when he couldn't right more for a few minutes while waiting on decisions or dice.Or maybe that'd just too much common sense for you shit lords.
>>39276518Two anons got butthurt because we didn't win today's objective, now Merc is the worst QM, the quest is on the verge of failure, and anyone who disagrees with them is a fan of grimderp and clearly does not have the ability to make correct decisions like they do.With luck they actually do drop the quest, so future threads can deal without them.
