However, during the course of the battle, one of your wingmates, Amy, had taken a bad hit at the hands of the OB ace Tombstone. "How bad?" You ask, trying to stay calm. You bring your Eagle right up next to Amy's stricken Warthog and wince. The left side of her craft seemed to have taken a direct missile hit, a section of fuselage nothing but burnt and twisted metal, and uncomfortably close to the cockpit. "Can you fly? Are you hurt?""Well, the controls still work, kinda." Amy mumbles. "Not sure about injuries, but I... kinda feel tired..."That wasn't good. Either she was bleeding out or she took a serious head injury, neither of which were good, especially in the middle of a raging air battle with enemies on the ground. >Tell Amy to eject.>Tell Amy to emergency land.>Tell Amy to return to base.>Other

Before I'm unable to post because I have to go, I did a little something for this thread. I've awakened the Demon in Karla. Use the blessing given by the Lord Razgriz
>>40848425That would require an arrestor cable. The A-10 isn't fitted with one.
>>40848356>Tell Amy to return to base.It's far too unsafe for her to eject here. If we can get back to friendly territory, she can emergency land there, at least.

>>40848696NOT YET, THERE'S STILL HOPE!
>>40848690It's pretty funny because it also includes Muv-Luv and some other stuff you wouldn't expect to see in SRW.
>>40848779Sounds like fun
>>40848779Now i want Merc to do Muv-Luv quest after ACQ ended.
>>40849016>Muv-Luv Quest>Actually in strangereal
>>40848356"Amy, I need you to focus and listen to me very carefully." You say slowly and clearly over the radio. "Set your bearing south an head back to the Pillar. Can you do that?""Yeah... Yeah think I can." Amy mumbles, her voice soft. You see her A-10 turn very very slowly. "Are you sure you can make back yourself?" You ask, not completely trusting her answer, whatever it would be."Heh, who the hell do you think I am?" Amy chuckles weakly. You check your radar again. The Gyges was still struggling to gain altitude, and was now flying around in a large, lazy circle rather than straight line. Either the crew was trying to make emergency repairs before leaving, or whether Jager was busy seizing control of the ship, you weren't sure at the moment. Meanwhile, Wolf's team and the rest of your wingmates were tangling with OB planes attempting to protect the Gyges. It seemed like you and Amy were the only unengaged planes in the air, for now.>Have Amy return on her own.>Escort Amy>Have Lara escort Amy>Have Lilian escort Amy>Have Wolf escort Amy>Other

>>40849307[muffled, but growing whistling over the radio]
>>40848527she's not responding... it's as if she's possessed by a demon...
>>40849080"All right, Amy, just stay on me." You say. "We'll get you back home safe and sound, okay?""Yeah, okay." Amy says, her A-10 sidling right behind your Eagle. "Lead the way, I guess.""Stripes, Angel, Wolf, I'm escorting Amy back to base." You say over the radio. "I hate to do this but I'm going to have to bow out for now.""No worries, Valk! We can hold off against these chumps!" Lara assures you. "Or at the very least stay alive." Lilian adds."More kills for us, then!" Wolf cackles.You roll your eyes at the nonchalance of your comrades and key Jager's frequency. "Yo, Jager, how are you guys doing?""We're making progress. Thankfully, they don't have many guards, but with the narrow spaces and chokepoints, they're making movement difficult." His voice is briefly interrupted by loud gunfire. "But we're close to seizing the control center. We'll update you as we go. And good luck with your wingmate.""Thanks." You grin as you leave the bulk of the fighting behind you. "Wild Card Four, be advised, I'm picking up additional contacts to the north." Loki warns."More OB reinforcements?" You groan."Possible, but their speed suggests they might be Dahl planes." Loki explains. "I suggest you drop altitude if you don't want to be spotted.""I don't know if that's possible." You say as you glance at Amy's A-10, which was wobbling and shaking dangerously, either from damage for from Amy's sluggish control. "I don't like getting Amy any closer to the ground than she has to.""Up to you, but whatever you do, do it fast." Loki says unhelpfully, as always. >Hit the throttle and get out of here.>Drop closer to the ground.>Other

>>40849582>Have Amy drop altitude, you stay on overwatch.>Call on an Open Channel and see if Mickey's there among the Dahl reinforcements. Tell him about Amy's condition.
Broadcasting on an open channel that Amy's an easy kill would be pretty fucking stupid.
>>40849746the general plan is that if he is there among Dahl reinforcements, we'll tell him about Amy's condition on a private channel.
Rolled 3 (1d10)>>40849582"Aw shit, Amy, hit your throttle, as fast as it can go!" You yell. "Um... um... just a sec..." Amy says. "Okay, found it!"The Warthog's twin turbine's groan as extra power is fed into them. At the very least, they weren't damaged from Tombstone's attack, so they should be working fine. All you had to do was hope that Amy could pick up enough speed to gain enough distance from the Dahl planes, or hope they just don't notice or care of your presence.>roll 1d10 (AIR roll.You need a 5 or lower.)

>>40850028"Wild Card Four, I have four contacts breaking off from the main group and headed for you!" Loki warns. "They're coming in fast! Looks like they spotted you!""Damn it!" You spit. "How fast?""Not very. They're probably in older pattern planes. You've got enough distance that you might be able to evade them." Loki says.

>>40850528"Come on, Amy, PUSH THOSE ENGINES!" You growl. "I don't care if you redline them! Pick up your speed!"You glance at your map, HUD, which is already tagging the locations of friendly SAM sites protecting Atlas airspace. You were so close. Just a few more kilometers and you'd be in their protective umbrella...>Roll 1d10 (AIR roll. You need a 5 or lower!)

Well, lets look on the bright side, we do have VT tomorrow. It can't get any worse.
>>40850631One time, when we rolled COMPLETELY AVERAGE (1, 20, and 10), Merc gave us something good AND something bad.
>>40850751>It can't get any worse.That sentence falls into 'tempting fate' category.
>>40850751God damn it.
>>40850588Unfortunately, your missile lock warning starts to shriek, meaning that your pursuers had caught up to. They had to have hit afterburner, meaning they were damn determined to take you down. This close, your radar tags the incoming planes as a pair of MiG-21s and F-4 Phantoms. Not exactly sophisticated craft, but still more than enough to take down a damaged Warthog. >Break off to engage the planes.>Stay close to Amy to draw missiles away.>Other

Rolled 9, 9, 9, 2 = 29 (4d10)>>40850791"Damnit." You seethe. "Amy, keep going straight ahead! Don't stop for anything, you hear me?""What are you up to?" Amy asks softly."Just gonna make sure you make it back safe, that's all." You explain as you drop back, putting yourself between Amy and your pursuers. Amy couldn't dodge missiles but you could. You'd at least have a better chance having them shoot at you rather than her.Goddamn, the things you did for this job."They have missile lock on you!" Loki warns."Yes, I know, that's the point." You sigh. "Just tell me when-""Missiles incoming!""Thank you." You glance at your radar screen and see four small blips moving rapidly towards you, no doubt the launched missiles.You had to be careful how this was handled. If you broke off too soon, then you might not be able to dodge the missiles, or they might lock on to Amy instead. If you broke too late, well, the answer to that was obvious. It was all about the timing...>roll 1d10 (ACM roll. You need a 5 or lower)

The tens are for Amy, the ones are ours.
>>40851306You know why.
>>40851306I remember someone doing that doing VMQ1.
>>40851244That'd better count. Please tell me that counts.
>>40851301"How could you Weiss? how could YOU? Leaving me for better plane... NOW READY FOR MY WRATH!"
>>40851317No, no I don't. The only reason I can see it happening is a troll wanting to derail the quest (because deleting a roll treats it like a crit fail by merc's previous quests. The fact that it was a crit success is even more diabolical.)
Uh oh. Looks like things are starting to get... dicey.>>40848484I like it!
>>40851284I may have been the one who rolled that 10, but at least I don't delete dice roll posts.
>>40851354Like I said, you know why.
This whole thread tonight. anons, I'm on my 3rd bag already!
>>40851320It's still there for me since. I was the one who rolled a 1 as well.

>>40851401I did not delete it. That post is still there on my end.
>>40851199Okay, the 1's back on.

>>40851437Welcome to 4chan the site is buggy at times. Go figure, right? So stop being a little shit.
>>40851437Okay, I'm the guy who posted it, I'll prove it with another pic. I can now see the 1. It is NOT gone.I'll post a pic to prove it.
>>408514581) only one deleted post2) even if there was a second crit success it would have been the 4th roll and not counted
>>40851481>>40851470>>40851469>Inb4 it's OB messing with our rolls
I honestly think 4chanX fucked up for a few of you. 1 is still there relax.
>>40851437look closely on the browser tabs. Also, I'm still trying to get used to my namefagging habits and rights.
>>40851470So it was deleted, then un-deleted?Point is if Merc can't see it, it counts as a 10. That's his rule.
....it took me awhile to notice whats the problem here.No, the 1 is still here and never gone on my side.
>>40851183You try and wait until you're absolutely sure the missiles have locked on to you. You jink and juke to the sides a bit and see the missiles correcting to keep track of you, letting you know that they' have a positive lock on your plane. You then jam your stick in a hard right turn. Three of the missiles are unable to keep up with you and fly past, completely bypassing your plane. However, the fourth missile stays on track and explodes right behind your Eagle, causing it to shudder from the shock. Almost immediately, you can see the power output in your left engine dropping. No doubt damaged from the blast.>-3 hp>9 hp remainsHowever, as you check your radar again, you note that you've at least accomplished the objective your distraction.

>>40851741I do. MG1 doesn't. I carefully yaw around one corner, he cuts straight through and gets lit up by the SAMs
>>40851536As much as you wanted to teach these assholes a lesson in airborne chivalry, you knew that you had a greater duty to see to it that Amy got back to base safely. You turn around hit afterburner, following in Amy's wake. The Dahl planes attempt to follow up, but you see them immediately break as the Atlas SAMs begin painting them for targeting. Obviously they were looking for easy kills, and decided to cut their losses when that didn't seem to be the case.Just the thought of Amy being an "easy kill" just made your mind smolder. However, the danger was past and you finally exhaled."Valk! Valk! Are you okay?" You hear as you see the three operational Butterflies approaching."Yeah, I am." You say. "What are you doing here?""Loki told us you were in trouble so we came to help!" Thunder exclaims.Loki actually going out of his way to do something HELPFUL? Well, there's a first for everything, you guess."I-It looks like we're too late though..." Lightning sighs. "Your engine looks damaged." Dawn observes. "Maybe you should get it checked.""Whatever you do, you better hurry." Loki grunts. "Looks like those Dahl planes are joining in on the fight. It's a goddamn mess out there!""The others?" You ask worriedly."Fine for now, but the Gyges is taking a beating." Loki warns. "Looks like Dahl doesn't want anybody getting away with it.">Land and try to get your damage fixed.>Head back to the fight.>Other

>>40851968>Land and try to get your damage fixed.Land and grab the Phantom. Lets show these nuggets what it really means to get kills in flying bricks.
>>40852227Sorry, anon....but we kinda sold our Phantom when we first bought the Falcon.
>>40852243rebuy it. Should be cheap and we have the cash.
>>40851968"I'm going to land and see if I can get my bird patched up." You say. "Let Smokey know to get his crew ready.""They're already deployed, along with fire and rescue crews." Loki says. Soon enough, the Pillar comes into view as the Butterflies guide you back. Amy's Warthog is still struggling to get there and she's been worryingly quiet so far, and every time you try to ask her something she just gives back nonverbal grunts.Despite your protests, control requests that you land first, since if Amy tried it and crashed, she'd risk blocking the entire runway. Leveling out your plane with a damaged engine is a bit tricky, but you manage to pull it off, your wheels landing solidly on the tarmac. You immediately taxi over to the side, where Smokey and his crew quickly begin clambering all over the plane to check for faults.However, you eyes were glued to Amy's approach. With guidance from the control tower and the Butterflies, Amy's Warthog slowly lines up with the runway and begins to descend. Unfortunately, her performance was still rather wobbly and you feared the worst. You breathe a sigh of relief as the landing gear goes down, only to freeze again when Amy's plane tilts dangerously to the side, nearly dragging the wingtip across the tarmac before the whole plane evens out at literally the last second. The moment the Warthog rolls to a stop it's immediately swarmed by emergency crews. Firefighters spray the whole plane down in fire retardant foam, while the EMTs pull Amy's limp body out of the cockpit. You so desperately want to go see her, but you have other things to worry about."If you give us a few minutes, we can do an emergency swap on your engines." Smokey grunts. "Just pop out the damaged one and slide the new one in. Simple as that.">I want that repairs done yesterday.>I'm going out in the Falcon.>Other

>>40852275>I'm going out in the Falcon.Go, Now!
>>40852275"Take out the Falcon." You instruct. "Time to break out the classics.""Sure thing." Smokey nods and turns to his crew. "Hey guys! Get the Falcon out here!"You watch as Smokey's crew dashes to the back of the hangar, yanking the protective tarp covering your old Falcon off. You smile briefly as you look on. It had been a long time since you had seen your Falcon, actually flying it even moreso. Memories immediately flood back as you settle back into the cockpit. You had a lot of good times in this plane. However, you had to remind yourself that on paper, your Falcon had taken a huge hit in performance in comparison to your upgraded Eagle. You push that thought to the side. As long as it flew and could fire a missile, you didn't care. "She's already fueled and ready to go!" Smokey yells as he bangs on the side of the Falcon to show that it's in good condition. "Figured something like this might happen!""Thanks, Smokey." You grin as you close the canopy."Hey, knock the shit outt them, for us and Amy!" Smokey adds.You just nod and give him the thumbs up as you taxi out to the runway. At this point, the damage crews had already managed to two the Warthog out of the way. No sooner than you get takeoff authorization when you hit full throttle to take off."Valk! Do you need any help?" Dawn asks, she and the other Butterflies circling lazily over the base.>Sure, I need all the help I can get.>You all stay here and keep an eye on Amy.>Other

>>40852705"Sure, I need all the help I can get." You grin. With Tombstone out of the picture, you feel a bit safer letting them tag along. "You girls ready?""Of course we are!" Thunder exclaims loudly as she hits afterburners. "Let's go get em!""W-wait for me!" Lightning wails.Your improvised flight speeds back to the battle, and from what you can see, things weren't going well. Even from where you were, you could see numerous explosions and contrails focused around the Gyges."Loki, what are we looking at here?" You ask."Three squadrons of Dahl planes entered the battle, and its' turned into a massive free for all." Loki explains. "However, it looks to be that they're trying to shoot down the Gyges."Sure enough, you can see gouts of smoke and fire trailing from dozens of breaches in the Gyges' hull, and you could see more than a few engines have gone cold."Jager, you still alive?" You ask."Barely." Jager grunts. "We've manged to seize control of the ship, but these fucking Dahl assholes dropped out of nowhere and they're mauling us pretty bad! Wolf and your squad have been doing their best but there's just way too many of them!"As if to emphasize his point, a pair of F-4 Phatnoms swoop in behind the Gyges, launchign missiles at its vulnerable engines. Explosions ripple across the rear of the airship as another engine sputters out.>Jager, bail out. It's not worth saving at this point.>Set a course for base. We'll cover you.>Other

Now that you think about it, where the hell is Jager going to park the damn thing?I don't think we have an airstrip large enough to accommodate it, and last time I checked, it could land on large enough bodies of water.

>>40853068>>Set a course for base. We'll cover you.I want the shiny.
>>40853068"Set a course for base, Jager. We'll cover you." You say as you gain altitude to get into a good ambush position. You could see the Gyges' remaining weapons fire wildly at the Dahl planes, even knocking a few out of the sky, mostly ones too careless or stupid and venturing too close to its CIWS guns. However, the vast majority of the Dahl planes were hanging around in the Gyges' rear arc, where its coverage was the weakest and where its engines were. You wonder where the hell your wingmates were in all this."Stripes, Angel, how are you two doing?" You ask."Fighting off OB and Dahl planes at the same time!" Lara laughs manically. "Having a fucking blast!""I'm... a bit occupied." Lilian sounds very distracted. You have a feeling that she's engaging her fiance.""We're trying to take out the last of these OB planes before moving on to the Dahl guys!" Wolf reports.Meanwhile, you can see a new wave of aircraft readying another attack run on the Gyges. The Butterflies are already making a move to dive down on them.>Assist the Gyges.>Assist your wingmates.>Other

>>40853261>Assist the Gyges.Gyges is the priority right now, we need to drive them off from the weak rear arc. Our firepower will best be used against Dahl, since we are not in the best fighter currently to deal with the high-end OB planes. OB will likely tear us a new one if we try to assist in our Falcon.We need to trust in Wolf, Lara, and Lilian to know their limits, and understand when to ask for help/make a run for it.

>>40853514>that 3 is good, hopefully that 7 can do something useful at least.>You need a 6 or lower!I admire your optimism
>>40853487I think it's more due to the fact /tg/ dice doesn't work well with how often they're used in Merc's quests; messing up their otherwise randomness.
>>40853514anon, even when we only just meet the DC, like if we roll a 6, it does nothing 90% of the timewe NEED constant 1's or we only just scratch their paint all day long
>>40853577Combine that with Merc rolling with a trip on further altering how 'random' they are, and you get rolls like in his post, where they are just constantly at the extremes.
>>40853589that too, things like that also futher screw things up; I don't think whoever designed the dice system imagined them to be used like this.
I vaguely recall someone saying 4chan uses a really shitty random seed, so its very prone to runs. its hard to sort out confirmation bias with this sort of thing though.
>bad rolls>somethings wrong with the system guys>laughingdicegods.jpg
>>40853413You and the Butterflies unleash a torrent of missiles towards the attacking formation. However, in the mass confusion, most of your missiles actually miss, with only one scoring a solid kill against on of the MiG-25s. The butterflies do a better job, knocking out six more planes. Unfortunately, a few of the MiG-25s manage to get their missiles off before going down, and you see a few slam into the Gyges as another engine sputters out. "Damnit, we're losing engine power." Jager grumbles. The best i can manage is to get this thing into Atlas territory, and then we can do a rough landing. You just gotta keep them off of us for a little longer!""Nooooo problem!"

>>40853643At this point, with you and the Butterflies in the fray, the Dahl assault waves against the Gyges have largely been disrupted. Plus, with the airship getting ever closer to the Atlas air defense zone, the Dahl planes were clearly getting jittery, now wanting to fight over enemy territory. You see at least a few teams fall back and fly for home, though quite a number remain.You see yet another attack wave. A flight of F-16s similar to your own. You get the feeling that these were some of Dahl's better equipped pilots. They begin to vector in for another rear attack on the Gyges.>Come in behind them to get a better shot.>Go in head on to force them fire at you instead.>Other

>>40853972I know the QAAMs are better in the real games.I'm just asking if spamming 6d10s with a 6+ has a better probability to hit rather than 3d10s with two 6+ and a 7+.
>>40854011Do we? I can't find where it says that in the stats sheet, but if we do have 4AAM's on the Falcon, then why did Merc make us only roll 3 dice?Merc, you want to clarify? Also we should have gotten to vote on which ones to take before taking off with the Falcon.
>>40854028>>40854020Maybe it has the SP weapon that we used during our last sortie with this bird. Anyone want to dig up the archives?
Merc is kill?
>>40853827>Sorry about the delay. Had a few connection issues.Deciding that the Gyges could not afford to be hit any more, you gather up all of your courage and place yourself in between the heavily damaged airship and the Dahl planes. At first, they don't fire, as they're possibly confused as to what you're trying to do. However, at this point, you don't particularly care and continue your approach, firing as you go.Two F-16s evaporate under your assault, and the rest scatter and flee in the face of your opposition, no doubt since you and the Butterflies managed to shoot quite a few of them down, not to mention you had reached Atlas' territory, discouraging further enemy attacks."All right, Jager, you're clear!" You grunt. You watch somewhat helplessly as the Gyges lurches forward through the air, steadily losing altitude as its total engine power begins to fail. "Brace for impact!" You hear Jager yell.That's when the Gyges flares up for a brief moment to bleed of excess air speed before slamming into the desert sand below with a massive boom. Clouds of sand and dust are kicked up as the Gyges slides across the desert, grounded again after having fought to stay airborne this whole time."We've got her now." Jager says somewhat happily. >And that's it for tonight! Sorry for the abrupt wrapup but a few things had happened.>Unfortunately, I will be taking a break on the 4th of July weekend, so no threads next week. However, afterwards we should be back to our regular schedule!
