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...Achieve:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Kantai%20Collection%20of%20Blue%20Steel%20QuestTwitter, so you can get notified when I run, or when I'm unable to run: https://twitter.com/BoatKunQMYou are the USS New Jersey, and are ready to take back the seas from the Fleet of Fog!Last time, we came back as a Shipgirl, assisted in sinking the Fleet of Fog's USS Alaska, got to base, got a rundown on what happened between having been decommissioned and now, and learned about the other 3 Shipgirls currently at NBSD.
"FOG TASK FORCE 12 SPOTTED," the loudspeakers all around the base blare. "DRONES HAVE SPOTTED ONE TENNESSEE CLASS BATTLESHIP, ONE ESSEX CLASS CARRIER, TWO BENSON CLASS DESTROYERS, AND ONE FLETCHER CLASS DESTROYER. ALL SHIPGIRLS REPORT TO BATTLE STATIONS IMMEDIATELY."Hailey, Houston, Argy, and you all prepare for high-speed launch.

>>47103221You get closer to the Essex class, and once you get close enough, you see CV-16 in the tribal markings that the hulls of all ships with Klein Fields have.You fire, but all of your shots miss their target. The ships's AA and guns fire at you, and land a few hits, but don't inflict much damage to your Klein Field due to their small size.Hailey's torpedoes all miss their marks, but her Photon Cannons land some hits, slightly saturating the Destroyer's Klein Fields.Houston misses her shots on the Essex class, and takes a few hits from the AA of the Essex. The Fog Fletcher class Destroyer suddenly is met with two Corrosive warhead hits from underneath, and explodes, before beginning to sink into the depths.Argy sticks her head out of the water and smiles."A minelaying Submarine can't be beaten by any Destroyer!" she gloats. "Well except for that one time..."The Tennessee class fires sporadically missing all shots.You notice what looks like movement on the deck of the Essex class.>"Guys, I think I saw something on the Essex's deck...">It probably isn't anything>Other/Write-In

Wait, so it is ship girls vs. full-sized fleet of fog ships?
>>47105265Yes.To provide some fluff, in this quest the canon is that Shipgirls are related to the Fleet of Fog in some way, and only began to appear 1-2 years after the Fog.Fairies are the only thing other then the Fog capable of creating things like weapons with Corrosive Warheads which gives me an idea for an endgame weapon, Photon Cannons, and Super Gravity Cannons. There's approximately 1 Mental Model in the American Fleet of Fog, and it's right in front of us.
>>47104912Houston and you both bend your knees and jump. Just as you're about to land on the deck, a small Klein Field is raised and pushes you both back down to the water."Hahahaaa," you hear a voice laugh."Show yourself!" You shout, slightly pissed off after being bitch slapped with a MOTHERFUCKING KLEIN FIELD. That'll sting for a few days. "I am Fog Sea Area Assault and Suppression Ship Lexington," she proclaims.

>>47106142https://twitter.com/BoatKunQM/status/728185060822781954I used this configuration of Task Force 12, as that was the first task force that I could find with a Lexington in it, and also had several DD's and a BB.The original USS Lexington was of the Saratoga class, and was sunk at Midway iirc. Saratoga survived the war and was sunken at Operation Crossroads. The second USS Lexington was an Essex class named after the news that Lexington was sunk was received. I confused myself, and the Arpeggio panels with Lexington don't show off her smokestack very well, so I assumed she was the Essex class Lexington. This is a different canon, so it doesn't make too much of a difference for her to be of a later class with the same goals in mind. Assuming you didn't mean that as a write-in.
>>47105858You jump up onto the deck, and don't get pushed off again. Houston is still on the water.Lexington aims her AA guns at you."Let me talk to you. What are you, and where did you come from," you demand, pointing your own guns at her."I am this ship," Lexington replies. "A Mental Model of the Fleet of Fog. A human simulation, if you will."A distant explosion can be heard, as the last Benson is sunk.>Attempt to seduce (Give Write-In and roll 1d20)>"Stand down and surrender."

Rolled 4 (1d20)>>47106700>"Stand down and surrender."
>>47106700"Stand down and surrender," you demand in as serious of a tone as you can."I'll comply," Lexington replies, deactivating her Klein Field and powering down her weapons. "I won't do anything about California however."You turn towards the Tennessee class Battleship and see it moving too fast and to far to give chase."We're taking you back to base. Don't try anything funny."When you returned to NBSD, everyone was scared shitless when you rolled in with a full sized Aircraft Carrier.Argy leads Lexington in to the Admiral with Houston and you holding her arms so as to stop her from attacking or causing trouble.Clearly surprised, the Admiral interrogates her, and it is learned that she doesn't care what happens to her, as long as she gets to read.She gives you all the information that can be given and understood, though nobody understands the Admiralty Code, and gives no origin to herself or the Fleet of Fog, and could care less. You have several options to decide her fate.>Recruit her>Tell her to go and never return>Other possibility/Write-In
>>47106393>Lexington was sunk at MidwayLexington was lost at Coral Sea, the US carrier lost at Midway was the Yorktown.
>>47107084>Ask others for their opinions on what we should do with her
>>47107122Ah, thanks anon. I've read too many books about the Pacific War, within the last 6 months, that what happened and with whom becomes a blur at times.
>>47107166I forgot my trip.WAKE ME UP
>>47107084We should see the others opinions. I mean, having an aircraft carrier would be beneficial to have.
>>47107084Recruit her, we don't have any air support yet and presumably if the Anime is anything to go by a good dose of sweet, sweet human loving will have her on our side in no time.
>>47107218>Implying any of the FoF have planesThere are only two who have planes shown and one of them only has one to make shopping runs.
>>47107084>Recruit herLay on the charm and promises of books if we must.
Rolled 9, 15, 17, 14 = 55 (4d20)^10+ mean they want to recruit. 9- mean they don't. The 4th d20 is the Admiral.>>47107084
>>47107368So only one was against it, and only just barely. Excellent.
So THATS why Liam didn't allow high rolls...>>47107084>>47107368"I'm gonna let you guys decide," you declare to the others."I think she should join us," Argy says."That's why I was thinking as well," the Admiral responds.Houston agrees as well.Hailey doesn't agree, but she doesn't make a big deal out of it either."That settles it," the Admiral announces. "Lexington, you work for us now.">Thats all of the questing for tonight, but now begins the >QA SESSION>also make sure to follow me at https://twitter.com/BoatKunQM>for updates on when I post, if I can't post on a day, or to get some FLUFF>This quest has 2 threads a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and starts around 3-4 PM EST and ends at around 10 PM EST. I will stick around for as long as I can for the QA SESSION.
>>47107544What made you decide to combine KC and Arpeggio?
>>47107574KC and Arpeggio has the ability to mesh pretty well, in my opinion. Also, I wanted to run a quest, and while it is regrettably slow, I enjoy running it.I was inspired heavily, and still am, be MercCommand's Kantai Collection Pacific Strike Quest. Also, I like boats. I'm visiting the USS New Jersey and I'm going to touch her stern.My choice in the 4 Shipgirls utilized a diceroll website, and/or picking a ship with a feminine name, such as Hailey, or something interesting, such as North Carolina's AA bullet hell or Argonuat being a minelayer submarine with torpedoes as well.
WHAT MONSTROSITY HAVE I CREATED
>>47107830It wants to die.
>>47107251It's an aircraft carrier, it would presumably have to have planes to be worth having.
>>47108134Actually they don't. In Arpeggio at least, nearly all of the FoF aircraft got shot down because they were too small to fit klein fields on and thus were the only things really vulnerable to human weapons. Most of them since basically spend their time being glorified buoys and bored out of their minds.
>>47108243The advantage of a Arpeggio CV is that they have godlike Klein Fields, and in this universe, can continuously pump out planes with onboard facilities.That weapon idea I had earlier was conventional Naval artillery, but with fairy manufactured Corrosive Warheads. It would be WAY too overpowered. There are also earthquakes in the South Pacific periodically, in the same area az R'lyeh from Lovecraft. Speculate away, but it will be quite a while until we learn more.
>>47108243It seems odd that there would be no way for them to manufacture new planes, considering they are shown to be able to reconstruct whole ships out of "nanomaterials"
>>47108855Probably more of 'why bother making easily destroyed things when our ships can just ram and shoot them'
>>47107709Add more descriptive things to your stuff.Like instead of "you dodged her missiles"You write "You bank left, hard, just in time to be sprayed by the splash of missiles slamming into the ocean 20 feet off your prow. Moments later, your bones rattle as the shockwave from the exploded ordinance travels through the water and up your legs."Otherwise, keep rocking, Boat-Kun.
