In the late seventies through the early nineties, drug violence in South America only continued to escalate. A successful revolution by the IRA in Ireland encouraged similar revolts in central Africa that devolved into decades-long civil wars, and a USSR faction in the Russian government. Human trafficking for both the organ and the sex trades exploded between south-east Asia and eastern Europe. In the face of such chaos, government run militaries and agencies were too caught up in red tape to be effective in combatting these threats. Traditional armies abdicated their throne as international super-powers, and turned it over to the world of private military contractors.Thirty years later, the private military industry is a widely accepted fact of life, a necessary evil for the security of the world. While many people in the civilized world resent these men for what they represent, they are also aware that they need them, lest the world fall into the hellscape that it was once again.You are Jan Kowalski, a Polish special forces operator turned private military contractor. In return for cash and other liquid currency, you, and men like you go places national militaries can’t, and that local police forces won’t.IMPORTANT INFO:Twitter, for updates, details, and cancellations: https://twitter.com/ContractorQMLast Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/204454Archive for all threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=Contractor+questStat Sheet: http://pastebin.com/84MTDvaBQuest Info: http://pastebin.com/eQ2EDWhBLast time on Contractor Quest: You fought through to the end of the tournament and emerged as it's victors. You returned to your hotel room in Dallas, and decided to go down to the after party to bask in the glory a little.
>>254197You still hadn’t made up your mind as Solomon walked out of the shower. He put on some pretty nice clothes, and suggested you go downstairs.“We can bask in it a little,” he says, urging you to join him.You relent, and also put on some socially acceptable clothes. You meet the other three at their door, and cajole them into joining you as well. Only Arne requires actual convincing, as the other two have been here a while, and Arne has been effectively combatting a pretty serious wound for about 24 hours.You get downstairs, and the crowd of people shout, and most raise their glasses. There are several groups waving you over, including the last team you fought, the team of the sniper you Predator’d, and the first team you took out. Colt Williams and Clara Baker are also quietly conversing at their own table, and wave you over as well.>Join one of the teams (Who?)>Join Colt and Clara>Wander through the crowd for a while
>>254200>>Join Colt and ClaraFucking sweet, glad you're back Handler.
>>254200O boi he isn't dead. Join colt and Clara <3.
>>254200>>Join Colt and Clara
>>254207I was just fine, but my 200 dollar amazon laptop was throwing a fit.Think that's the fastest we've ever reached a vote. Writing.Throw out some ideas on what you guys might wanna talk about
>>254200>Join Colt and Clara>This quest isn't deadThere truly is a god
>>254215A little playful teasing couldn't hurt. Ask her how she let her guard slip which let us get her down.
>>254215I'd talk about what a clusterfuck it all was. These urban engagements consisted of one team finding the other and murderizing them as fast as possible before getting bogged down. Nearly every fight we were in had the potential to go the other way, some very easily. We should talk about weather, sleep and maybe more parties beforehand though. You know, normal people stuff.
>>254215Or even some normal conversation. Ask if they learned anything from the Arena
>>254215Maybe ask about their personal kill-counts, if only to see how it could have been us
You give Hyun a small elbow, and nod towards Williams and Baker, and wink a little too sarcastically. He says something that you can’t quite hear over the music and chatter, but you doubt it was friendly.You make your way through the crowd, glad-handing left and right. Somewhere along the path you ended up with a champagne shooter in one hand, and something dark with ice in the other. Placing your newly found drinks on the table, you shake hands and begin the small talk.Clara motions towards you and Arne. “I told a reporter for Soldier of Fortune about that little maneuver with the claymore. It spread like wildfire, and now they’re all chomping at the bit to get the first interview with you two,” she says with a smile.Looks like giving a little showmanship was worth your time. “I’m just wondering how such a storied professional let her guard down like that,” you tease.She flips you a bird, then shrugs. “Put too much faith in the claymores, I guess. Not really used to combat scenarios.”Colt speaks to the whole group next, looking almost a little proud for some reason. “They swarmed me when I got in. ‘Who eliminated Colt Williams?’ was all I heard for about two hours. I told the story about a dozen times, and I think some heavy hitters got word that you can be tactical when you need to. I’d expect some juicier contracts to come your way. To Impact!, too.”“Well,” you start, “we appreciate getting such a good review from a legend. After seeing what you did to those teams, I’m glad we didn’t just kick the door in and start shooting. It was enough of a clusterfuck as it was.”He throws his head back in a deep laugh. “It sure as hell was. I spent too much time going for the Vector. You guys put me down on the last grab for it. I was about to just bail.”That sets the table talking. Solomon is talking to Clara, and trying pretty hard to act casual. Cooper and Arne are talking shop with Williams. You see a glimpse of Jonas’s back as he slips away into the crowd, in the general direction of both the bar and the door to the street.What would you like to do?>Wingman for Solomon. He could use it.>Chat with THE Colt Williams. It could be a long time before you get a chance like this again.>Look for Jonas. Maybe he was headed for the bar, and you could use a third drink.>Find another group>Write-in
I think these social interactions are going to be pretty write-in heavy. I'll give you guys the options on who to talk to and whatnot, but what is said will be up to you guys. That way we can kind of get a feel for Kowalski past 'Polish Contractor with a dog." That sound okay? Voting, then giving me a small write-in on what to say?
>>254274Sounds good. Hopefully you can stitch the write-ins to something a human might say.
>>254265>>Wingman for Solomon. He could use it.Let's not hang off Colt's dick for too much longer. Grab a beer and hang with our friends.
>>254265Follow Jonas. If he is going to the bar, break off. If he is going to the street, follow him.
>>254265>>Wingman for Solomon. He could use it.
Looks like we're 2-1-1 for being a wingman.How do we want to start? If you just want to give me a general concept, I can put it into actual words. Or, if you'd like, I can just copy/paste something specific if it gets support
>>254295Was Solomon with us on our last mission?
>>254295We look at Solomon, see if he's actually trying to score or get drunk as hell. If he's drinking and mingling, we walk with him and introduce ourselves to a pair of unbothered ladies. We're young, we're flash, we're built, we got prestige, and girls here are thirsty. Just don't marry ant of them.
>>254298Solomon was in Bogota with you, but not Jakarta. You didn't really talk to him much in Colombia though.
>>254295Go get the two some drinks and make sure to back up Solomon if he says anything stupid or /r9k/ worthy.
Rolled 34 (1d100)Let's see how well Solomon flirts.
>>254337ooh. Looks like it's Jan to the rescue.
>>254337Damn. Really makes you think...
>>254337Hey baby, did you fall from Tennessee because I could see you crumpled up at the end of my bed.
You subtly get Solomon’s attention, and make a quick drinking motion. He nods in understanding, and you make towards the bar. You realize you have no idea what either would prefer to drink, so you just order a pair of beers. You reach for your wallet, but the bartender stops you.“Combatix is covering the bill for you folks tonight.”Class act. You make your way back to the table. Oh. Oh, Solomon. It doesn’t look like a complete disaster, but he’s clearly in trouble. A plea for help in his eyes, and you swoop in, handing the drinks to them in an effort to interrupt.“So, Clara, how many did you eliminate before we put you down?”Her eyes light up, and she starts getting excited. You flash a look at Solomon, and make sure he takes note of that.“I managed to get eight before you showed up. And I’m pretty sure I hit one of yours, as well.” You nod, confirming. “I thought so. I enjoyed being out there. I might have to see about coming back when they give the place an actual opening.”“Well, if you do, I think I know a pretty good spotter, if you think you could use one,” you say. Solomon mouths his thanks to you, and the small-talk continues. Looks like you avoided the train wreck Hyun was heading into. For now, at least. Baker turns back towards Solomon, Colt, Arne and Cooper are now talking about soccer, and Jonas is still not back yet.>Stay with Solomon. He might need to be bailed out.>Now seems like a good time to join the other three>Try to find Jonas>Mingle with the crowd>Write-in
>>254370See if you can go find Jonas. He might have went out the door into the street.
>>254370>>Try to find Jonas
You tap Cooper on the shoulder, and lean into his ear. “You seen Jonas? He bailed as soon as we got to the table.”He looks around, but doesn’t seem surprised. “Nah, but he’s been acting kind of weird ever since I got back. All quiet and shit. I couldn’t get anything out of him, though.”You thank him, and wander the crowd for a while looking for him. You eventually look out in the street where you find him sitting on a bench outside the hotel, alone. There’s a glass in his hand, and two beer bottles on the sidewalk in front of him. He’s swirling the contents of the glass in silence.You pull up a seat on the other end of the bench, and stay quiet.After a few minutes, he speaks, but softly. “I would have died, Jan. Two in the chest, and it would have ended. I have kids, dude.”Well shit.>Write-in only
>>254397>That's why we do it though. For them. It's dangerous work but it pays well. I know I don't have children, but I do know how it feels to have people depending on you. I can see how you're afraid, I had some close calls in the Sandbox. But we are better than who we fight. That's how we won this entire tournament.
You remain silent for a few moments. “That’s why we do it. I don’t have kids, but I know what it’s like to have people to protect. The work we do keeps the darkness at bay. We put our lives on the line. Yeah, we do it for money, but that’s only part of it. We risk ourselves in some shitty part of the world, so that they don’t have to do it on their way to school. At a bank. Leaving a baseball game. If we didn’t do what we did, in ten years the cartels would move up from South America, Jihadists would be at our front door, and slavers in Africa and the Pacific would be operating freely in our cities.” You stand, and motion towards the door. He follows.“So, after this, go home, and spend some time with your kids. While you do, think about what you would do to protect them from what you see every time you get off that plane.”He nods, and wipes his eyes on his sleeve. “Thank you, Kowalski. I appreciate that.”The two of you end up back in the hotel, and do a quick scan. Solomon is still talking to Clara, and has taken Colt’s seat, who seems to be in the crowd with Cooper. Arne is at the bar, talking to a group of people that don’t look like contractors. >Who would you like to find?
>>254441Talk to one of the teams we took out.
>>254441Go find that German guy that was the last guy we took out
Jonas peels off, presumably to find Cooper, and you decide you want to look for some competitors. The social has turned into more of a party, and finding particular people you have only met once is harder than you thought it would be. You wander through the crowd for a while before a hand lands on your shoulder. You spin to meet the person, and it’s the German man you eliminated last.You shake his hand, and he introduces himself as Dieter, though since leaving Germany he went by Terry.You return the introduction and start chatting. It’s a little hard understanding the accent over the music, but you’ve got enough practice, being Polish and all.“We were pretty surprised we made it to the end. We were more here for training and the experience than anything. However, we mostly kept around the residential district looking for teams, but could never find anyone. We only put down three teams before you found us.”A much different time than you had, fighting tooth and nail in the business sector. Doesn’t really sound like they hid and cowered, though. He picks up the conversation again. “The announcement said you were from Impact! Solutions. Been with them long? I’ve worked with Kostov Security in Pheonix for two years now, after spending a few years in GSG-9 back home.”“I’ve only been with them about a month and a half. I did two tours with Wojska Specjalne in the sandbox. My term was up, and Impact! came with a bigger check than Poland did.”>Keep talking to Dieter. About what?>Find someone else. Who?>Go back to your room.>Find the dance floor.>Write in
I gotta run to the bank now, folks, so feel free to take time and be creative. I'll let you guys know when I'm back. Should be about half an hour or so.
>>254556Keep talking to Dieter. Ask him about his tour with the GSG. Then see how Solomon is doing
Back, and sorry about the wait. Had a bit of a SNAFU with the bank and rent. I think I might put this on hold for the time being until more people are around. Sorry bro.
>>254724Nah that's fine. I don't know why everyone ran. I guess they forgot about the thread. Check later tonight or tomorrow.
>>254753I work tonight, but tomorrow morning/early after noon will probably pick up again. I'd imagine a lot of people are at work or something.Thanks for sticking around though, I do appreciate it. Working on a rough worldbuilding pastebin now. Should be up soon.
http://pastebin.com/KX8ZGstMWorld building pastebin is up, and will be added to as we flesh out the world of Contractor Quest more.
>>254886That's surprisingly well put together. I don't know if you mentioned it, but what about the U.S. or Europe?
>>254934The pastebin is mostly things you'll be interacting with, like other companies and contractor hotspots. First World Countries aren't really either of those. US is pretty much the same as it is now, but with the 'fast and loose' style that the world has taken on influencing it's free-market style pretty heavily. Europe is also largely the same, but being less driven by the direction of the industrial world. The EU is also nearly at a tipping point over CAMP and it's opponents, and there have been talks of dissolving it. I'll throw that up soon. I'm working on the mission options for when you get back right now.Also, I'm still monitoring the thread if anyone has questions or comments.
>>255027new gear when
>>255034Finished updating the shelves before I started on the missions. You'll have the opportunity by the next time you leave Atlanta.
>>255060Is the improved IFAK better than our 'comprehensive' one?
>>255361It is. I can't remember the bonuses off the top of my head, but it will lower DC for medic rolls
Little roll call. Anyone around?
Welp. Sorry to get your hopes up, senpai. Was hoping to do a little character fleshing since it's slow at work, but no such luck.
>>256385aw damn. Oh well, it's all good. We'll get back into it later.
>>256385I've been niggered
>>256385Well, hope to see you in the morning some time.
>>256385Running this morning?
>>257783In like half an hour or so
>>257892Awesome, I'll be here
Sorry for the wait guys. I try not to run while my fiance is around since it requires me spending like 6 hours at my computer
You guys still wanna keep talking to Deiter or do something else? Vote from this post. I'll just come in with it written up
>>257981How about we appologise to that sniper who we totally reckt in the office building. The one who called us a dick for the amount we shot him?
>>257985Find that guy I guess and then go to the floor and wait for people to come to us
And now we wait 18 million years for my google doc to load all 120ish pages of Contractor QuestDid you know we have 120 pages of Contractor quest? Arial, size 11 font. With breaks between posts but shit. 120 pages. Shit. Writing.
>>258061Is that what you've written so far or just plans for the future?
>>258066>Me>PlanningKek. Nope, just what I've written so far
>>258061Jesus christ. There's no way we went through 120 pages
You thank Terry for his time and the conversation, and wish him luck while he works. You remember that there’s someone you should probably be apologizing to. You find the sniper as he walks up to the bar with a slight limp. You wince and feel a little guilty before you walk up behind him, and motion for the bartender to put it on Combatix’s bill. He shrugs and slides it over.You take a seat next to the man and introduce yourself.“Jan Kowalski. I’m the guy that started the ‘full auto and all the grenades’ thing in the office. Sorry if that was a little overboard.”He shakes the offered hand. “Clint Vetter, and no hard feelings. It got the job done, didn’t it?” He takes a swig of the glass on the bar in front of him, and continues talking. “The announcement said you were from Impact! Here in the states. Me and my team are with ProTechtion, over in Switzerland. We mostly do bodyguard stuff, but jumped at the chance for actual urban combat, a simulation it may be.”>Reply to Clint (Write in)>Go to the dance floor>Find someone else (Who?)>Write in
>>258091How many kills did your group end up getting? You guys had a good little hide up in that building. If we hadn't taken you by surprise things may have been very different.
>>258091Buy him a drink and ask him about his kills.
“So, Clint,” you say as you motion for the bartender to bring him another drink, playing for this one out of your own pocket. “How many kills did you and your team end up getting?”He finishes the drink in front of him. “As the sniper, I put down six. The rest of the guys put down two teams as they tried to rush the building. They moved them further inside so it wasn’t quite so obvious where the shots were coming from.”“Yeah,” you return, “finding you was a bit of a bitch. Our own sniper actually figured it out on our way to another fight. If we hadn’t noticed you, there’s a good chance we would have been team number three.”“How about your team,” he asks in reply as his fresh drink shows up. “They didn’t say how many teams you put down.”You scratch your head. You didn’t really keep track. “I wanna say six,” you start, “but it might have been eight. Most were wounded or caught by surprise. It all kind of blends together.”“Shit, that’s impressive. And Colt and Clara to boot. You guys earned that. I heard some of the techies saying they were hoping that whoever won didn’t just hole up and take out the last team. Certainly looks like that isn’t want you did.”>Reply to Clint (Write in)>Go to the dance floor>Find someone else (Who?)>Write in
>>258136Yeah we decided that it was best to move under the cover of night when the last team should be resting - take them by surprise. Unfortunately they had the same idea as us. Still, that last fight was exciting if nothing else. Anyway, it was nice meeting you.>Go to the dance floor
>>258144Do this and go to the dance floor to get greasy
“We thought about doing a little bit of holing up,” you say, feeling a little guilty. “And we did, a little bit. Mostly at night after we’d taken a few losses. Most of it was hunting though. We tried to get the last team at night when they should be resting, but they had the same idea. That made it pretty exciting, though.”The small talk continues for a few minutes before you make your goodbyes, and head out to the dance floor. You’re making your way through the dancers when Cooper and Jonas pull you into a little group that formed around them.“Colt decided his wife wouldn’t approve of all this female attention,” Cooper Hartmann yells over the music. “Jonas has been talking about bailing too, being married and all. Idiots. Arne is nowhere to be found, and we’re going to have to carry Hyun away from that blonde bombshell sniper. Help me out here, we’re fucking heros tonight. Pick a woman in Dallas right now, and she’s yours. Hell, pick two.”Jonas just rolls his eyes.>Sounds fun>I think you can handle yourself>Write-in
You lean into Jonas’ ear. You try to whisper, but over the music and the crowd, you have to pretty much yell. “I’ll make sure he doesn’t get into too much trouble.”He mouths his words of thanks has he places his hand on your shoulder. He leans over and says something to Cooper before leaving, and gives a stern look to a woman who can’t be older than twenty-two attempting to grind on him. She stops the attempt.The night gets longer and the music faster and louder. The little group you started in has now grown to about twenty people, and Cooper has been talking to a well-equipped black woman in a tiny red dress for about an hour now. It looks like he’s having some luck.You’ve been bouncing from woman to woman since you got here, and all seem equally glad to have your attention. It’s probably getting time to decide, though, before they decide to go for lower hanging fruit. The asian girl in the bikini top and Daisy Dukes seemed nice, if a little crazy for your taste. There was also a blonde Southern Belle in a skintight black dress who was more than happy to get a little handsy, right there on the dance floor, or a table of women not far from the edge of the dancers that had been keeping an eye on you all night.>The asian girl>The southern belle>The table>Look elsewhere (Where?)>Write-in
>>258215>>The southern belle
>>258215>The tableWe're champions right now, lets try to swing for a threesome if we can, if not we will still most likely have some fun tonight
>>258215Go to the table and if that works, try to pick up the southern girl
I'll be rolling a 1d2 in five minutes from this post to break the tie if no one new comes in or if no one changes.
Rolled 2 (1d2)Or 9 minutes later, whatever.1- table2- blonde
You’ve been around the block enough to know a few things. First, any amount of group sex that will come that easily is going to be trouble. And secondly, don’t throw away a sure thing.You return to the blonde, who is apparently named Kelly, and start to dance a little more aggressively. She takes the hint, and drags you through the dance floor. You expect to be led to the door, but she takes you into a bathroom, and locks it behind you.The bottom of the dress came up in a hurry, and that bathroom needs a good washing. And so did the back of the cab. And her front porch. And her kitchen counter. And her staircase. And finally most of the flat surfaces in her bedroom.You wake the next morning, more sore than you’ve ever been. There’s a note from Kelly, with all your clothes folded neatly on the dresser. You find your phone in the pants pocket, and check it. Three new messages.>Check Tiffany’s message>Check Solomon’s message>Check Harris’s message>You’re too hung over for your phone. Catch a cab back to the hotel.
>>258322>>Check Tiffany’s messagethen>Check Solomon’s messagethen>Check Harris’s message
>>258322Tiffany, Solomon, Harris
>>258322>>258334thisBUT WHAT DID THE NOTE SAY?!?!?!
>>258348who was phone?
You decide to take the time to check the texts. Maybe some motionless time will ease the pain in your ribs that came back after the adrenaline rush of the last few days was over.>Tiffany Murdock, 7:38 AM>Hey, med wing wants to see you so they can clear you for action. When you’re done, come see me in my office. Those hard drives came through for you>Solomon Hyun, 6:06 AM>Plane leaves Dallas at 11:30. Be there, or pay for a plane ticket back.>Nathan Harris, : 11:16 PM>I’m told you have money for me?Oh shit. You check the time…9:48. You gotta haul ass if you wanna make it to the hotel and then to the airfield.You get out of the cab, and run up to your room, disheveled and sore. You open the door at about 10:15 to find Solomon, Jonas and Arne calmly chatting away while they finish up packing. Cooper is nowhere to be seen.“With that woman you left with last night,” Hyun starts giving you shit, “I thought you might find buying your own plane ticket worth it.”“Jokes on you,” you return the favor, “she was gone when I woke up.”This continues for a while while you pack, and as you’re about to leave for the airfield, Cooper walks in the door. He doesn’t look like he slept. Solomon motions at him to hurry up, and he packs in hungover silence.The plane trip back is a snap, once again, and you step off the plane. Now what?>Go home. It’s been a long few days.>The med wing wanted to clear you. Go see them.>Go to Tiffany’s office. She said something about the hard drives>Find Harris. You have money for him.>Write-in>>258348This is a blue board, friend. But it contained her phone number, and a number of... details.
>>258378>Find Harris. You have money for him.You got personal responsibilities to keep.
>>258378>>Find Harris. You have money for him.
>>258378>>The med wing wanted to clear you. Go see them.
Nathan Harris may be a mean old bastard, but you do owe him money. He also doesn’t like to answer his phone, apparently. You swing by your gear locker to grab his bundle of cash, and set off looking. It takes a while, and you have to ask a few people, but you eventually tracked him down in the mess hall, which you swear you checked like, at least twice.You take a seat next to him and hold out the cash.“Here’s what I pulled out of that safe. About a thousand bucks or so.”“Thanks, Kowalski, I appreciate it. Congrats on the-” he gets cut off by his phone ringing. “Its my daughter, sorry. She’s been freaking out about prom shit lately. I gotta take this.” And just like that, it’s like you aren’t even there any more. Definitely a mean old bastard, but at least he has priorities.Now what?>The med wing>Tiffany’s office>Home>Other
>>258378Harris. Then the medwing. Then office
You decide to go see what these hard drives had on them. You knock on Tiffany’s door as you enter, and she motions to one of the two chairs in front of her desk.“So, you’ve been cleared? They didn’t email me to let me know.”“Well, you see…”“Stop there. You gotta do that before I can present you with mission options. However, we can talk about the bonus those hard drives got you. They had a lot of information on where the girls ended up. Rather than just pay you outright, they want to offer the four of you first dibs on the contracts to retrieve them. They’re working on getting intelligence teams on the ground in Russia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, and the Congo now. Might be a while before they turn anything up. Sound like a plan? Also, go get fucking cleared. I can’t even show you options before that happens, or legal will get all up on my ass.”>Hell yeah it does>Nah, open them up. I’ll take them if there are no better offers.>Other>Fine, I’ll go>Maybe later
>>258465>>Hell yeah it does>Fine, I’ll go
>>258465Hell Yeah. I'll go.
“Hell yeah I’m willing to accept exclusive contracts! Let me know when they open up.”“Oh, for sure. You do, however, have to be fucking cleared for duty before I can offer them to you. Get your ass to the med wing, Jan.”“Fine, jesus, I’ll go.”With that, you’re out the door. The walk to the med wing isn’t far, and you imagine the building is set up for this exact reason.Getting cleared takes all of fifteen minutes, and most of that is taken up by your doctor scolding you for doing the exact opposite of taking it easy for a week. He does, however, usher you out fit for duty. You wave at the receptionist on your way out, and she waves back a little too enthusiastically for professional courtesy.You get back into Tiffany’s office, and she sits you down again.“Thank you. I just got the Okay from med and legal to give you contract options. So, here you go.”She hits a few keys on her computer, and flips the monitor around to face you.http://pastebin.com/jBBmWcjj>Select a mission, or pass on all of them.

Well, I thought I was going to have another two hours, but I gotta get going guys. Sorry. We'll pick this up Thursday if you guys can keep the thread alive. I may be posting updates sporadically between now and then, but I will always be around to answer questions and whatnot
>>258625Ah. Right. Would we still have time to shop?
>>258632Thanks for running.
>>258637If I get the chance that's the first thing we'll do. I'll try to make a point to get you guys there. Won't be for a few hours. Got a bit of driving to do
“I’ll get back to you about the training session later,” you tell Tiffany as you rise from your chair. “I wanna get some new gear for the mission, and then get a half decent night’s sleep and at least see my dog before I fly halfway around the world again.”“Alright, call me or shoot me a text. Whatever works best. I can schedule one from wherever.”She waves goodbye as you close the door behind you, and make the short walk back to your car. You start it, and look up directions to the equipment store that Tiffany mentioned. You pull up in the parking lot of the building, cleverly named ‘Contractor Supply Depot’, and walk up to the door. Like a well-armed Costco, the man at the door asks to see your contractor license, and ushers you in once you see it. You find the sales desk, and ask the man behind it for some sort of help. He hands you a catalogue. It’s fairly thin, but this is a relatively new store. http://pastebin.com/AutzTNKx“Let me know what I can get you,” he says, as he goes back to his computer further down the counter.>You have 15,400 USD to spend>Your current inventory is available on your character sheet, linked in the OP post>Be civil
And with that I really do have to get going. Figured you guys can get that together while I'm driving and doing family shit. Have fun, I'll check back in a few hours
>>258767Thanks so far.
>>258740Alright. For when you return Thursday, I say to get 4 grenades, and ask to see if he has any claymores or remote explosives.
>>259041Possibly the grenades, I would shy away from explosives for this mission though, I've been debating what direction we should go with this. Probably an armor upgrade and I am very tempted by the flying drone, eyes in the sky are invaluable.
>>259083the upgraded armor/outfit and a helmet would be worthwhile if we don't already have a helmet
>>259251You have the helmet and level III plates are provided free by the company
>>259041Those should be on there. I'll add them soon.
>>259083Well we might need to defend. Explosives could prove invaluable.
>>259412With an avalanche prone area? Wouldn't do us much good to bury the temple in the course of defending it
>>259373Is the Tactical Helmet better than our Combat one? If so I vote for buying that, the level IV plates, the improved IFAK and a suppressor for our pistol as well. Still really tempted by the drone
>>259432They'd be the same. I must have just switched the wording between the pastebins
>>259373I have been waiting for this moment since like yesterday.Buy the Improved IFAK, and the two Lv.4 plates for our carrier is a must. Apart from that, I think we should get a new weapon, but I want other anons' inputs.(For the record, the two plates and the IFAK runs us about $2300.) I would say that we should get the new-production AK model, and attach a foregrip and RDS, for -3 to all of our rifle shots.
>>259446This sounds good. We could use the drone to scout and defend the area.
>>259446New to this quest, but we already have a rifle and an SMG, why do we need another rifle? Also, I don't think the AK has full auto capability with that low of a price.
Alright, someone wanna give me a full list?
>>259556There's lore reasons for that. It's full auto capable. Welcome, though! Glad to have you. Catch up on the archives and the pastebins, and it should start becoming clearer
>>259559Well upgraded armor, 4 grenades, and maybe the drone with thermal
>>259556Because our current rifle model is close to ~40 years old in the setting?
>>259629Forgot this is set in 2030, and if its an early production G36 I'm surprised it hasn't melted on us already.Anyone else from /k/?
>>259639I've been meaning to find a work around with that, but this way everyone either knows what I'm talking about or can easily look it up, so I've just left it.Everything you use is new when you purchase or otherwise receive it, unless it is low-tier loot
>>259639Maybe a Mk18? Fuck, I don't know. Guns aren't getting much better.
>>259661XM8 maybe? Still on 2nd thread, but if one of our friends doesn't have one already an under barrel grenade launcher would be nice.
I know I didn't mention this, but you'll have porters on the way up to the temple, and a place to store weapons. You can bring a second primary and a second... secondary, I guess, if you want.We'll pretend that was in the mission breifing
>>259696Temple is most likely confined hallways and rooms, so bringing the MP5 as a second primary wouldn't be a bad idea.
What do we have on us at the moment?
>>259897http://pastebin.com/84MTDvaBAlso, whats the twitter handle for Handler?
>>259909https://twitter.com/ContractorQMLet me clarify - Since this mission will have two parts, a 'take' phase and a 'hold' phase, you can bring multiple weapons. These weapons can be used at the same time, but they will follow looted weapon rules, which is the second one will be dropped if you switch to the one that is actually equipped.Or, you can leave one with the porters taking you up the mountain, and switch if you think the opportunity calls for it
Might I suggest we get our hands on a Steyr M1912 for our first side arm, A Suppressor for our Glock and maybe a Pistol Red Dot sight as our second.Buy ourselves two claymores as they do minimal enviromental damage but good at covering our asses. as well as a second grenade.For our Primary I'd suggest we get a suppressor and scope for our HK g36In regards to Melee, have our standard knife on our shoulder but also have a small blade on our calf strap just incase.any one else go any ideas?
>>259957You'll need the Professional tactical outfit to carry two secondaries or two melees.The pistol will have to have the Holdout feature, and one of the melees has to be the Small combat knife.You also have a supressor and red dot for your g36
>>259957We already have a sight and suppressor for G36, a pistol suppressor would be nice however. Also, we don't really need another 9mm handgun, if we were going to get a second pistol I'd say we get something stupidly large like a deagle, or a .45 of some sort, like a USP, or some other gun that will accept a lot of modifications.
>>259971And two melee's, not or. You get both if you have items that meet the requirements
>>259976I suggested the Steyr incase of things getting close and personal and we need a quick spray of full auto. But I see your point.
>>259985Any machine pistol or small SMG (uzi, mac-10, mp7, etc) can be used as a secondary weapons, though the smg's won't get any skill bonus if being used 1-handed, only what you get from attachments
>>260012Also, regular pistols. Obviously.
>>260035Why do we need a holdout pistol exactly? Also, how many mag pouches does our current outfit have?
>>260069A holdout pistol is going to be a gun that only you know you have. So, you may never need it. But if you do, you're probably really going to need it.You can currently carry 6+1 primary magazines, 2+1 secondary magazines, and two grenades
>>260069If we go with the 26 as the secondary, it can use 19 mags. My vote is pistol red dot and silencer. Do we have access to NVGs?
>>260079What about like a flamethrower. Or like some sort of incendiary device?
>>260120Yeah, that list is by no means complete. I'll add to it as you guys remind me of stuff and I remember stuff>>260150You could get a flame thrower, but it will be A) ludicrously expensive and B) useful in a very small handful of situations. Incendiary grenades are a possibility though, but you can only carry two grenades
>>260171Couldn't we just get a satchel and throw a few more in?
>>260173Part of me wants to let you because there really is no good reason you can't, but part of me knows how close to game breaking grenades are. I'll think on it, but probably
Since this mission will not only have a Take phase but also a Hold phase, where we have to hold out for two days against ISIS forces, should we consider what ammunition the opposition will have, and what gun we should bring with that in mind?Also, I know people want grenades, but I'd like stress that there is a very severe avalanche risk reported in the briefing.
>>260230So we use incendiary.
>>259684XM8 YESWE MUST ACQUIRE XM8Well it would be the M8KA2 now in setting
>>259957>Might I suggest we get our hands on a Steyr M1912 for our first side armHow about no, as awesome as that 100year old design is, its shit for modern combat, its a safe queen today let alone 15 years from nowIf we want to upgrade our side arm, we should get a HK USP45 or FNH FNP45Tac
>>260230>Also, I know people want grenades, but I'd like stress that there is a very severe avalanche risk reported in the briefing.Incen, 9banger (a true stun not a flash) and smoke nades with some preysight gear (whether it be INF/Therm etc) would be a good alternative to going full explodeythe point about ammo is a good one to bring up, which would a half decent reason to buy that cheap modernised AK, to swap to when we run out of 5.56 but it only works if OPFOR bring 7.62 soviet
>>260423We can just loot whatever OPFOR was armed with to use with their ammo.What could be useful is fortification tools, empty sandbags and the like.
>>260239Incendiary would severely lower the chances of an avalanche. I just want you guys to know I'm serious about that shit. I'll be rolling if you guys don't use your heads>>260414You keep mentioning that, but I can find literally no connection to M8KA2 in reference to firearms of any sort>>260423While you do not have information on these particular hostiles, the rule of thumb is that Islamic State fighters will use 7.62x39 AK models until they can loot or buy a better weapon. Some of the more experienced or elite fighters will sport an FAL or M4
>>260453very true>>260453we would need a solid day and a half to set up half decent fortifications with sandbags, we're better off putting effort into blocking avenues of access and making firelanes
>>260455>You keep mentioning that, but I can find literally no connection to M8KA2 in reference to firearms of any sortthe 2 XM8's in Malaysian service (they only have 2, and they always bring them out for parades, they got them as bribes to buy more G36's) are M8KA1's, essentially what would be the production version of the XM8, the KA part being modification/enhancement, the 1 being first modification, which in the XM8's case was the replacement of the proprietary attachments and a more standardized M1913 rail system as well as an improved stock.otherwise the M8KA1 is the same as the final version XM8 (prototype iteration 27 IIRC), the M8KA2 was a concept design by H&K to further modernise the XM8 by around 2020, when they expected to have large fieldings of the XM8, which sadly never happened.
>>260483heres a pic of one of the Malay's M8's, the compact version
>>260483Well neato. Thanks for teaching me something new
>>260492heres the other one they currently have, the M8KA1 20" DMR interestingly enough, my buddy at H&K said the Malay's were going ahead with procurement of more M8's as their G36's are getting old and heavily worn out from constant use in the jungles
>>260492>>260499so yeah, we need buy XM8 plz
>>260499>there is hope for the fish gunToday is a good day
>>260503the Emirati's have also expressed interest in future orders of M8's, with Quatar wanting some too, they are just waiting on H&K to have some downtime on their current G36 tooling so they can gear up for M8 production, everyone in europe with G36's atm is going through major upgrades and service life extension programs
>>260499It looks good. Do you know the average range of the rifle
>>260508the same as any other 223/5.56 rifle, about 600-800m with decent optics, though I've stretched mine well past that out to 1200 when things have gotten dire but then your kind of pissing in the wind
Okay. Time to decide. Looks like we want to do the level IV plates, a handful of grenades with types to be decided (and added to the pastebin) and possibly a drone.Also mentioned have been a new assault rifle and a new pistol, but there doesn't seem to be any real group decision on those
>>260593The level IV plates are a must, and don't we want the new tactical outfit and IFAK? Those two aren't that expensive, and should provide some benefits in the terms of more ammo and grenades.The G26 uses the same ammo as the G19, but not the same mags, so I guess that works for a holdout pistol, and if we get captured by ISIS that would be a nice thing to have.The XM8 would be great, since it can be a rifle, carbine or DMR, but if they aren't selling it at this show then I don't think we can get it in-time for the mission.My vote on what to buy would be Tactical Outfit, IFAK, 2 Level IV plates, 2 flashbangs and then the G26.
>>260606I'll second, though we'll want some smoke nades as well
I'll throw the new grenade types up on the bin quick
>>260634It says custom orders, how much would our lord and savior, the fish gun, cost us, and how long would it take for it to get to us?Also, is there any difference between the tactical outfit we have on and the one being sold?
>>260697It's the same one. I left it in in case yours gets damaged somehow. Bin is updated with new grenade types and M8KA2
>>260626>X8KA2, 5.56 NATO - 1,500 USDAdd that to my vote as well as a couple 9bangers
>>260723>It's the same one. In that case we may as well not get one yet until we need anotherthis anon needs sleep, fuck you AEST timezone
>>260726Did you mean the professional outfit? You already have the improved tactical one
>>260737We need another pistol with the amount of jams that happen. Also, a second melee will let us do berserker shit if we need to. Buy List: Professional's Tactical Outfit, 2 Level IV plates, X8KA2 with all of its conversion kits, G26, two pistol suppressors (if we can mount a suppressor on the holdout pistol), Improved IFAK, and two flashbangs.Also, with two glocks could we get something like pic attached.
Professional's tactical outfit - 1,200 USD2 Level IV armor plates - 2,000 USDImproved IFAK - 300 ISDGlock G26 - 900 USD1 pistol suppressor (holdout pistols cannot accept attachments) - 200 USD2 flashbang grenades - 300 USDXM8 - 1,500 USDTotal cost - 6,400 USDConfirm?They do not have conversion kits on hand, but will order them for you. You'll pay when you pick them up.
>>260775change the two flash bangs to two 9bangs and add two grey smoke and one red smoke and its got my votetrying to gunfight through red and purple smoke cans is a fucking nightmare, and fun as fuck when your up against people who have no idea what they are doingnow I need sleep for reals
>>260775Yeah that looks good>>260786We can only carry two grenades, so two flashbangs against untrained opponents will make taking the temple incredibly easy, and then I'm assuming we can pull some frag grenades off them for the holdout.
Professional's tactical outfit - 1,200 USD2 Level IV armor plates - 2,000 USDImproved IFAK - 300 ISDGlock G26 - 900 USD1 pistol suppressor (holdout pistols cannot accept attachments) - 200 USD2 9bang grenades - 600 USDXM8 - 1,500 USD3 smoke grenades, 2 grey 1 red - 600 USDTotal cost - 7,300 USDConfirm? Already has one vote
I've decided you can keep up to 4 extra grenades with the porters, but not on your person
>>260805Sure thing. Confirm away
3's all we need. Next real update will have all that going on
>>260834The fishgun has come to save us.Also, for the next mission we already have Solomon and a drone/medic guy. I think an LMG would be great at holding hallways in the temple, do you think we could convince Cooper to join?
>>260834Would it be possible to use the same RDS from our G36 with the XM8? Is it possible to put a foregrip on it?If so, buy a foregrip and put our RDS from our G36 on it. pls.
>>260861yes and yes, they just attach on M1913 standard rails, both guns have them where appropriate
>>260848You'd have to ask him about that>>260861Sure can. He'll throw in a foregrip for free after a 7,000 dollar purchase
>>260872Can we call him today or will that have to wait till the quest starts back up again tomorrow?
>>260884I'm at the in-laws right now and the WiFi password is some arcane bullshit no one can remember. If I can get it up I'll post what I can today. No promises, though
bumping with praise for the fish gun
Gonna pick up the thread here soon. Probably half an hour, give or take
>>261468Why do they call it the fish gun?
>>265280Because it resembles one.
You set off to find the items you’re needing, and come back with a cartload. Carts, in a gun store. Funny concept.You place them on the counter, and he starts to ring them up. The final piece, the foregrip you intend to put on your new XM8, he just tosses into your cart after looking at the bill you’ve already racked up. Seems interested in keeping customers, it would seem.>Gained>Professional’s Tactical Outfit>Glock g26, 2 magazines>XM8, 7 magazines>Vertical foregrip>Two (2) Level IV armor plates>Pistol suppressor>Two (2) 9Bang grenades>Three (3) smoke grenades (2 gray, 1 red)>Spent 7,300 USDYou take the fresh haul out to the car, and secure it in the trunk. You get in and start it, then realize that you haven’t chosen where to go yet. This is a lot of merchandise that probably shouldn’t just sit in your trunk overnight, but you haven’t been home, yet, either. There is also the matter of not having a gunner for a potential area defense. All problems.>Go home>Go back to base>Write-in
>>265370Also, the new IFAK, that I forgot to add.
>>265370>Go back to base
>>265370>Go homeGotta greet our dog, let him know his master still lives.
>>265370Go back to base
You decide to make the short drive back to base.It doesn’t take you long, and you store your newfound gear in your locker in the armory. You can hear another few people around, but you haven’t seen anyone. It’s a big room, though, with lots of rows of lockers. It’s about 5 pm, so things should be starting up on base if they’re going to at all tonight. Now’s when most of the contractors and support staffs will be at the bar here. You also haven’t really spent any time at home in the past week and a half or so, being gone to Jakarta and then to Dallas. >Go to the base bar>Try to find someone (Who?)>Go home>Write-in>Reminder, you can still schedule a training session in the morning. You can train any of the combat skills on the character sheet.
>>265478>Go to the base barmaybe try and check up on our tourny team, see how they are recovering from the weekend of fun
>>265478Go home to see how casimir is doing.
You decide you’d like to spend at least a few hours at home before you fly to another continent - again.You make the drive and pull up in the driveway, to find Charlie’s car gone. Must be out. You open the door, and are immediately set upon by Casimir. It seems like he missed you, and you nearly fall backwards off the porch steps when he jumps into your chest. It’s all you can do to catch him.You play with him on the living room floor for a while before he seems to get tired out from the excitement, and curls up on the couch. Doesn’t seem like a bad idea.You walk upstairs and into your room, to find your laundry in a basket and your mail piled onto your bed. Charlie’s a good guy.But still, what to do. It’s about 7 PM>Call someone (Who? Why?)>Go somewhere (Where?)>Get some sleep.>Write in
>>265478>Call Cooper and asks if he wants to go on the Jakarta mission.
>>265520>Get some sleep.Check our mail, make sure we're not missing anything on this side of things and then hit the hay, we've got a big day ahead of us
>>265520Call cooper and check mail. Would we get less money then?
>>265540Payout is per operative. Thee operatives at for this particular op is 21,000 from the client. Four would be 28,000.
>>265520>>265540>Call cooper and check mail.thisin the morning we should get a little familiarised with out new fishgun and baby tupperware
If you’re going to be holding this temple, an LMG gunner is a must. You only know the one in the company, however, and decide to give Cooper Hartmann a call.He picks up after several rings. “Kowalski, how can I help you, man?”“Well,” you start, “I’m signed onto a mission in Nepal where we’ll probably have to defend a position for a day or three. There’s no gunner on mission yet, and I was hoping I could talk you into tagging along.”He makes an angry sound. “Fuck, man. I’d love to, but Colt Williams broke my hand, remember? I’ve got this damn club instead of five fingers for at least another month, med says. I know a few other guys, though, and I doubt all of them are busy. I’ll make some calls.”Shit. You forgot about that. Maybe Williams is an asshole, after all. You chat for a few more minutes before thanking him, and hang up. You go through about ten day worth of mail, and find nothing of any importance. A few bills, a handful of coupons, and the latest Soldier of Fortune. You mindlessly flip through the cover story - “Gulf of Mexico: Next hotspot?” while you fold the laundry that Charlie sorted for you. You’re pretty sure you should be getting a call, soon, about next month’s issue. Or maybe Tiffany will. You don’t know how it’ll work.Room cleaned and mail sorted, you look at the clock. 9 PM. Casimir came in and curled up on your bed somewhere in the process of laundry, and is looking at you with the kind of face only a dog can muster up. What to do now?>Call someone (Who? Why?)>Go somewhere (Where?)>Go to sleep>Write-in
>>265577Go to bed.
>>265577shoot that brunette we met before the tournament a message or a call, see if we can't arrange to hang out after we get back from nepalthensee what training is going on tomorrow and schedule some time with our new toys then>Go to sleep
>>265577Schedule rifle training tomorrow then go to bed
>>265597Seconding this and voting for the training to be rifle training
You send Tiffany a text, asking her to schedule a rifle training session tomorrow morning if possible. She replies nearly immediately, letting you know when the session is set up for.You shoo Casimir off the bed to climb in yourself, and he jumps right back in, curling up at your feet. You drift off, glad to be sleeping in your own bed, rather than some tournament city, a hotel room, or an airplane for once. You wake up in the morning, and find a message from Cooper on your phone.>Talked a guy into it. I trust him watching my back, so I’ll trust him watching yours. Ty Mitchell. He said that a fifth guy signed up before he did, too. Some former SWAT guy. Good luck man, make it back in one piece.You reply back, thanking him, and get dressed. On your way out the door, you shoot another text to Bridget, letting her know you’re going to be out of town for a few days, but seeing if she would be willing to make plans to see each other when you got back.You drive to the base, and pick up your XM8 and G36 on your way to the former SEAL to get some training on your rifle. They aren’t terribly different, but it takes some getting used to the XM8’s funny shape. After about two hours of drills and target practice, you have the hang of it. You get back to your locker, and have a reply from Bridget on the phone you left in there.>sure! just let me kno when!It’s about noon, right now, and the plane leaves Atlanta for Nepal in two hours. Probably time to load up and head over.>What is your loadout for the Nepal mission? You can bring two sets of weapons, since you will have somewhere to keep them, and time to change between them if you wish.>YOU WILL ONLY HAVE THE ITEMS YOU SPECIFICALLY MENTION. ITEMS WILL NOT BE RETCONNED IN. All weapons will be assumed to have all magazines and ammunition, however.

>>265700Kinda hard to see where people are shooting at you from, if we smoke their cover then they have to come into our view to see us, so we will have the advantage.
>>265710also a great way to mask avenues of assault and conceal defensible positionsI hate my timezone, its nearly 5am here so this anon is signing off for the night
>>265688Did you forget the new plates on purpose?
>>265722>>265688>Two Level IV plates
You can bring six grenades total, but you can only have two on you at a time. You can bring the old plates as well, but it will be very time consuming to change them mid-battleSo, we want all five non-lethals and all four plates? What's the plan?
>>265737>but it will be very time consuming to change them mid-battleit was more a thought to replacing cracked and used plates during breaks in the fighting when theres some downtime, an interesting idea to help with such occurances was our LRPV gunners brought a second LBE set with duplicate gear on it, so if their SAPI plates got used up (back in '01-'03 they have a life expectancy of about 15 7.62x39 rounds before complete failure) during contact they could quickly duck out of the turret into the truck tray, swap their vests and get back into the fight, though understandably thats not viable for Jan
>>265757We have multiple vests, not sure if we could carry them all the way to the temple though.Also, maybe we should wear the Level 3's while taking the temple since the fighters aren't as trained, then switch to the level 4's once the real opposition comes.

>>265807How much does the smoke actually help us if we don't have some kind of non-standard vision?
We should bring some frag grenades guys. I know that we're supposed to protect the place, but if they're outside of the place we'll be fine, right?
>>265818C'mon. How many times has the word AVALANCHE already appeared in this thread?
>>265807sounds good to me, if anything I'd maybe consider quickly buying some NODs but we should be good as is>>265818what part of AVALANCHE HAZARD do you not get?, doesn't matter whether they are inside the temple or not, anywhere on the mountain is pretty much a no go for boom, Handler already specifically said thisand now I seriously need sleep
>>265816+10 DC to hit you for as long as the smoke is covering you. It will also add +5 DC to all your shots as well. How long that is depends on if you move and wind conditions. In the mountain pass the temple is set in, quite a while.
>>265807I propose we take night vision goggles. We have to defend the temple so we can't evade a night battle if the enemy decides on it.
>>265836heat vision/IR goggles
Buy IR and/or NOGs before leaving?
>>265848I'm for IR, they'll allow us to see through our smoke.
>>265848IR, they work at night too
Alright, IR it is. I'll also assume you'll be bringing them. Writing
You decide to bring extra equipment, as the client is hiring porters to guide you up the mountain, and bring food and medical supplies to the hostages. As you drop in your smoke grenades, you have a thought.These things are useless to you if you’re going to be firing blindly while in their cover. The plane leaves in 90 minutes, so you haul ass to your car, calling Tiffany along the way, telling her to hold the plane if you aren’t there. In your vehicle, you also call ahead to the depot, asking them to have a set of IR goggles ready for you when you get there. They say they’ll be waiting.You run in, barely flashing your card to the man at the door, and pay for the goggles and are back in your vehicle in under a minute. >Gained: >IR Goggles>Lost>5,000 USDYou arrive at the airfield at 1:53, seven minutes before takeoff. Tiffany is tapping her foot impatiently at the stairs up to the plane, alone. Looks like you’re the last operative to arrive.You trade your keys for her manilla envelope.“Mission dossier,” she says, taking your keys to get your car back to base. “Everything you need to know about the mission is in here. Any questions?>Any questions for Tiffany?
>>265873"No, I got this" in a exaggeratedly manly tone
>>265873Just wish her luck in her love life.
>>265873We'll bring her back a souvenir for the office.
>>265873Nope. I'll bring you back a souvenir
“Nah, I should be fine. I’ll bring back something nice for your office,” you say.“You’re so kind,” she says in a teasingly sarcastic tone.“Good luck in the love life if I don’t make it back,” you tease back.“One,” she starts, “that isn’t funny. Two, Skyler is taking care of that just fine, thank you very much. Now get your ass on that plane before it leaves without you.”You wave goodbye, and start up the stairs. “About fuckin’ time,” Solomon yells from the back of the plane with a shit-eating grin on his face. An obscene gesture gets a laugh from him, and you stow your gear, minus the helmet and new goggles, and look for a seat to start assembling them together in.>Sit with Solomon>Sit with the younger guy, who you assume is Ty Mitchell.>Sit with the guy fiddling with a quad-copter>Sit with the guy with headphones in his ear>Sit alone>Write-in
>>265911>Sit alone and meditate.
>>265911>Sit with the younger guy, who you assume is Ty Mitchell.Thank him for agreeing to this op last-minute.
>>265911Sit with ty
>>265911>Sit with the younger guy, who you assume is Ty Mitchell.slap him on his thigh to get his attentionwe are in a plane, post number ends in 911, we are hunting isis
>>265911Follow the news on the way out. Catch up on current events and future job opportunities.
You leave the compartment, and sit with the younger guy near the center of the plane. Upon sitting, you notice this kid can’t be older than twenty-three or twenty-four.“Hey, Ty, right?” you ask.“Yeah, you must be Kowalski?” You nod. “Yeah, Cooper said you guys were aching for a gunner on this op, and I’ve been aching to get out there for a while now. Glad he called me first.”“Thanks for that,” you reply to him, sitting back and starting to fiddle with attaching the goggles to the helmet. “This op was going to be a pain without some sort of suppressive fire. It probably will be even with one.”“Are you kidding,” he says, getting excited. “A defended hard point overlooking a mountain pass? This is a gunner’s dream, Jan. I just hope I have the ammo for that M27 IAR of mine.”That’s a fair enough point. Once the team is set up, you’ll basically just have to keep people off of Ty, here, and hope he brought more ammo than they send men.>Keep talking to Ty (What?)>Sit with someone else (Who?)>Call someone (Who?)>Get some sleep>Write in
>>265971Tell him goodbye and go to that geek with the drone
>>265989this, but tell him to "be sure to keep your bursts short then, we don't know how many tangos are waiting"
>>265995I'm sure he knows this. But tell him anyway
>>265971>Keep talking to Ty (What?)Ask about his prior experience
>>265971>Keep talking to Ty"Glad to see a M27, they won't know who's hitting em hard, it'll probably make me the priority target though with my weird looking gun.:]"
“Better not get carried away, then,” you say as you stand. “ I am glad to see the M27, though. Between smoke, distance, and suppressive fire, they’ll have no idea who’s going after them. How’d you end up working for Impact!?”“Joined the Corps right out of highschool. Did a term, decided to go private. Didn’t like the rigid structure, and I’m enjoying the freedom that contracting gives me.”Well,” you reply as you walk away. “Be sure you keep the bursts short. We don’t know how many will be coming at us when they do. See ya on the ground.”You walk over to the man fiddling with the quadcopter, and sit down across from him. Your briefing said the drone expert was Mikail Dove.“Glad to have two members of the winning Combatix tourney team with us,” he starts the conversation off.“Glad to have someone who can do recon,” you return. “We might know how many they’re sending to retake the temple before they start shooting at us. That’ll be nice.”“That it will,” he exclaims excitedly. “Most of the reason I came along. Not a great shot, but I can recon with the drones, and patch up wounds.” He gets very stone-faced and solemn for a moment. “Knowing what those goat-fuckers might have done to those poor monks, I think my services may be in high demand.”You didn’t disagree. ISIS and it’s members did not have a reputation of kindness towards prisoners, whether combatants or not. You doubt the Buddhist monks would have put up much of a fight.>Keep talking to Mikail>Sit with Solomon>Sit with Ty again>Sit with the other man, who has switched his ear buds for the latest SoF magazine>Sit by yourself>Write-in
>>266042>Sit with the other man, who has switched his ear buds for the latest SoF magazineHumble brag about how you are going to be on the next cover of SoF
>>266042>Sit with the other man, who has switched his ear buds for the latest SoF magazinecomment on how you liked playing that game on PC
>>266064Seconding this, no sense in bringing up the win at the tourney, if he reads SoF he probably knows
>>266064Guy with magazine and then go to Solomon
“We’ll help who we can, Mikail. And kill the bastards for those we can’t.” You rise from your seat. Dove nods as he stares at the floor. He is apparently not impressed with this situation.You walk over to the man reading Soldier of Fortune. Well, you say a man. He more closely resembles a door that has somehow grown a beard. The man is probably in his forties, but has shoulders and a chest that any heavyweight boxer would be proud of.“You know,” you say as you sit across the aisle from him, “They came out with a computer game of that. You should try it some time. Warning, though, it didn’t age well.”He looks up from the mazagine at you, and grins. “Buddy,” he says, with a thick Boston accent, “I’m old enough, I played it on launch day. I like to think I aged better than it did. Connor Dunn,” he says offering his hand. He did, however, say it as ‘Cyannah’.“Jan Kowalski,” you say as you shake the offered hand. “I recognize that name,” he says, his eyes lighting up. “Rumor has it you’ll be on the cover of one of these, soon,” he mentions as he wiggles the magazine at you.>Stay with Connor>Sit with Solomon>Sit with Mikail or Ty again>Sit by yourself>Write in
>>266106Go back to sit with Solomon and ask how it went with that girl.
