The year is 2040Humanity was crushed by the Fleet of Fog, and can't risk losing the firepower they still have left.They had to watch as their navies were all destroyed by ships that brought them hope and victories long ago.But now, they can see these ships in a new light...This is my first time running a quest, and I'm taking heavy inspiration from MercCommand. I'm stealing his Fate Point system, since I like how it works.
Your open your eyes, and your brain is filled with details that you have never seen before.You smell the salt off of the waves, and you feel...The heat of a nearby explosion?You look towards its source, and see a ship flying the Stars and Stripes sinking beneath the waves.You feel a pang of anger, as you see what caused the American vessel to sink.It's a dark grey, Alaska class Battlecruiser, covered in bright tribal markings.You instinctively ready yourself to defend any survivors from the sunken ship.After all, you are...>The largest and most versatile American Submarine until the Cold War>A Destroyer who bombarded many shores, and served two wars before working for Brazil>A Heavy Cruiser who fought like no other during the Battle of Sunda Strait>A Battleship who once fired 2243 Anti-Air rounds per minute during an 8 minute attack, much to the dismay of a cutting board

>>47064843Just run here man. /qst/ is dead in the water.
>>47064864The first time I saw /qst/, it was full of /b/-type CYOA and shitposting.If the mods will it, they can move this thread to /qst/, but only if it graduates from being a trial board.
>>47064594>A Battleship who once fired 2243 Anti-Air rounds per minute during an 8 minute attack, much to the dismay of a cutting boardSince planefag's KCQ is probably dead after the last shitfest...

>>47066338You prepare to dodge, and suddenly several red beams of light come out of the Alaska's 12-inchers, all hitting the water around you. You take potshots, but only 2 manage to penetrate the armor, and have little effect on the Battlecruiser.A torpedo whooshes by you, almost knocking you off your feet. It hits the Alaska, right before it's covered completely in a hexagonal pattern, and explodes into a hexagonal sphere which tears a massive hole in the Alaska's hull.As the Alaska sinks to the bottom, you look towards the source of the torpedo, and see a girl surface...You then realize that you are a ship in a human body, and that she is as well."You must be North Carolina," she says, noting your hull number. "Welcome back. I'm the USS Argonaut, and you can thank me for saving your ass."I'm not a drawfag. Until I find one to enslave, I can only get images rom the internet and sometimes edit them badly.

>>47066983"I could've handled it without any help," you gloat. "Look at when she did to your rig. You would've lost if I didn't intervene."You take a look over your shoulder, and see a blackened crater on the edge of your rig, from the grazing hit you took minutes before. If it were a direct hit, your engine may have been taken out, if not worse."You're the fourth Shipgirl to show up, and war has changed.. Follow me back to base, and we'll debrief you."You arrive at Naval Base San Diego, or NBSD, in about an hour, with no trouble or ships attacking.You are led to the Admiral's office by Argonaut, and she knocks on the door.

Whelp... I'm retarded, and I forgot to update the thread. I'm going with the first roll, for Young and new to the job.>>47068165The Admiral greats you shyly, trying to avoid looking at your rather large chest.You can tell that he's new to the job.He explains what happened two years ago, how the Fleet of Fog appeared out of nowhere, and crushed 90% of the world's navies, isolated the world, how their guns fire condensed gravitational waves, and their torpedoes create spacial anomalies and erase matter.He then explains how Shipgirls work, and that fairies are the only thing other then the Fleet of Fog capable of creating Corrosive Torpedoes, with some help.You are offered two initial upgrades to make combat against the fog possible, as two is all your fairies are able to handle at this point in time.>PICK TWO>Super-Graviton Cannon: Freezes enemy ships it place, in a line when firing, but you must stop moving as well, before firing a beam powerful enough to destroy the smaller Battleships or anything smaller in one direct hit. Can only be used once during a battle, and make it count.>Corrosive Torpedo/Missile Bullet Hell: An ungodly amount of Corrosive warheads that can be fired at such a high density that an enemy will have no choice but to destroy, unless their Klein Field is loaded up fully. You can let out 2 barrages per battle, or use a half barrage.>Klein Field: The Ultimate Defense. On a Capital Ship, it is said to be capable of stopping a nuclear warhead. It can get oversaturated, and it can only take a few Corrosive Warhead hits, and can only stop a Super-Graviton Cannon if you get lucky.>Photon Cannons: Your main batteries, as well as secondaries and AA fire condensed gravitational waves capable at destroying Corrosive Warheads in the air or water, easily dealing damage to lighter ships with the Klein Field raised, and quickly saturating stronger Klein Fields.
>>47069416>>Klein Field: The Ultimate Defense. On a Capital Ship, it is said to be capable of stopping a nuclear warhead. It can get oversaturated, and it can only take a few Corrosive Warhead hits, and can only stop a Super-Graviton Cannon if you get lucky.

>>47069416>Klein Field>Photon CannonsAs much as I want to Itano circus some motherfuckers, the cannons will be more useful.
>>47069416You decide on the Klein Field and Photon Cannons. The fairies in your rig get to work right away, with help from the engineers on base.Argonaut, or Argy, as she prefers to be called, shows you around and takes you to where the other Shipgirls on base are. You meet Houston, a Heavy Cruiser who has trouble sleeping due to a night battle 98 years ago, where she was ganged up on by 2 Japanese Heavy Cruisers and a Destroyer. You also meet Hailey, a Destroyer who bombarded many beaches, and then worked for the Brazilians. She doesn't like talking about it though.She's seen some crazy shit.>That's it for tonight.

>>47070386Thanks for the run.
>>47070386See you next time.
>>47070386Will we be seeing canon characters from Arpeggio of Blue Steel?
I may or may not be writing this as we go along and that may be a cause of 1 hour waiting times>>47070506I'll include that as an option when we complete a major battle in the future. I'll probably include a doubling in speed, some gimmicky Myoko type of weapon and the graviton cannon again.
>>47070589I don't think hat canon Arpeggio characters will be used.I might make use of Lexington, if any canon character, because it wouldn't make sense for Japanese or German ships to be patrolling outside of their own areas when they don't have any human crew.As such any ship used will be American, Canadian, or Mexican, if thats a thing. Lemme look that up. Nope, not anything post-1919, as far as Wikipedia shows.There also PROBABLY won't be any abyssals to waifuSo try to waifu whatever Shipgirl you want, or even the Admiral, using write-ins.I will likely add more Shipgirls to the quest as time goes on, but for now, considering how I'm a complete and utter novice to running a quest, one might say that there's not enough seamen to control more :^)
