>89You have an idea - grab one of the traitors with your grapple! The casing on your arm slides away, and the launcher springs into position. This will be the first time you've used it - you hope it works well.You brace your arm on the table, anchoring yourself behind it. You sight the bastard who brought down Brete, and aim for him.The hook flies from your arm, stabbing itself into his arm. He screams, and the servos in your arm whir, dragging him across the battlefield to you.

His body whips around as the hook retracts, catching another traitor and bringing her straight to you.

It appears that some one does not want this small civil war to end.
Your pistol jumps in your hand as a bolt of energy flies into a traitor. He flies backward from the force of the blast, skidding along the ground. His head is now a fine red mist in the air.3 shots come flying your way, but they're all wild.

One trooper catches a bolt in the arm, but shakes it off, tossing a grenade before ducking behind cover.You and Jess run to the dropship, carrying the two surviving traitors with you (one bled out, from the grapple wound). You get them strapped in and cuffed. The noise level goes down, then stops, as the last traitor gets hit with what sounds like a burst from Tearers E-Web. A few seconds later, the loyalists and the Bloody Damned Dogs march in. "No BDD casualties, sir," the Sergeant of the Dogs tells you.

"So, who stands to gain from these peace talks going through?" you ask the room."Not the miners," says the new representative for the clans - Maya Duskis. "We want this war to end more than anything. Its continuation only risks more lives... although some radicals claim that the war won't be over until all the farmers are wiped off of Anobis.""The farmers dislike the idea of continued conflict as much as the miners, considering this new deal... although some of the more fanatical 'freedom fighters' want complete autonomy, and see any Imperial presence in the system as oppression.">The miners have more reason to continue this conflict.>The farmers want this war to continue.>Should we consider third parties?>Other

>>1079079Did we not take our ex with us? It seems that she had reasonable political connections that could've been useful to us, and maybe legitimize our claim to eventual throne?

I Say , knowing that the empire will no long be providing resources, take the smuggler(s) alive and or dead. Take their ships and kill them or press those who will into our service. Take control of this planet by sheer navy power/diplomatic power and force a deal. In other words when a cease fire/ starts and you continue it as long as you have clear terms it will turn into peace as long as you are getting your resources.
>>1079083We need more evidence, we can't really just jump to a conclusion right away. We'll look like an idiot if we make the wrong assumption. Maybe have someone look into it a little more. Meanwhile, maybe give those negotiations another go?

They're experienced with sabotage, stealth, and sniping. Covert ops.The 826th 'Bound Dogs' are a newer group, but they've proven tenacity and prowess in nonlethal urban stings.

>>1079617Of course, some non-specialists need to be brought in, as the named squads only have a total of 30 troopers.
>>1079623I dont care if the other 20 are used for electronic intelligence, logistics dedicated to the squad, or postal service. Its useful to have more hands in intelligence operations even if you hold them in reserve. I'm not saying use all 50 at the same time. I'm saying with the variety of skills presented by the 3 different sects of squads (pyre, ire, bounds) it'd be useful to have some in reserve that way you can swap them out, and if some die well they're still full forceish at 30 troops on the ground while your refilling the other 20.

One question. How come the space battles only use Vanilla EaW/FoC ships save for the Quasar Fires? It would be more interesting if there are more classes to play with like Strike Cruisers and Carracks chasing down retreating rebel ships with their high speed and powerful weaponry, or Victory I's taking down scores of ships in a single volley of concussion missiles.And on that note, TIE Defenders and Missile Gunboats when?

You stare at the datapad for a long moment. This is an elite military unit, put together to end a civil war. These men and women are putting their lives on the line; charging into the fray to kill and be killed for the greater good. This taskforce may be the one to net you the first world in your burgeoning empire. It's worthy of respect; reverence, even.You shrug."Hell with it. Womp Rat Fuckers."You send a general ping for the team to meet you on the exercise range. Each member of the Darkeyes takes their designated squad. You take Gamma."Ranks, names, squad, years served."One of the Pyre Boys steps up. Her movements are calm and coordinated."Arctis Mels, PFC, Pyre Boys. Three years served!"You nod, and she falls back in."Eider Witter, Private First, Pyre Boys. Six years."This one's a grinner. You've learned to watch these soldiers; they're the kind that vent by talking, and distract the whole squad for it."Seph Byr, Private Second Class, Ire's Eyes. Five years served."The scout trooper is relaxed in his movements, but his eyes are darting around the room like a madman's."Mest Lise. Private Second Class, Ire's Eyes. Four years."The man visibly relaxes as the next in line becomes your primary focus."Tess Mowi, Private First Class, Bound Dogs, two years."The newbie's sentence runs together, and she trips over a few syllables.

You single out Seph, one of the Scouts."Alright, soldier. Hit me.""Sir?""Attack me. Strike me. Now.""Uh..."You lash out and catch him on the side of his head. He goes down, clutching the area you tagged, groaning. Mowi's up next, you decide."You. Hit me."She's learned from her predecessor. Her hand balls into a fist, and she lashes out, missing you - but she uses the momentum from her swing to lash out with a kick, which you catch in your arm and use to send her back down to earth. She slams into the mat, winded.You leave the two unfortunate soldiers lying there, and turn and ask the group a question."What did we just learn, Gamma?""Never question an order, sir!" says Mels, voice quavering."Good, and what else?""If an enemy gives you a chance, take it," says Lise, quietly."Yes.

Half an hour later, you and the Darkeyes are standing together on the training course. It's relatively small, so you've expanded a little into the hallways. You've set up a hostage scenario, and put your squad on...>Defense>Offense
>>1085244>>DefenseThen another round where they switch places.
Defense. It's going to be an interesting job; you're up against a much larger force, but you have the advantage of marksmanship expertise. You're using toned-down blaster rifles combined with special sets of training armor that lock up when hit. Otherwise, all your gear is the same.Combat scenario: The hostage (A protocol droid) is bound in one room of a three-story building. There's a good amount of cover strewn about. The enemy's start point is hidden by rubble.

Call for help."The droid dutifully says, +Please, assist me.+You hear a rustling outside the door. A click. Oh, shit. You seal your helmet's anti-stun, and take cover. A half-second later, the door blows. The two remaining Gamma squad agents come rushing through the door. The lead races to the droid, while the second sweeps the room. You have about a second before they find you.>Shoot the lead>Shoot the second>Melee the second (lead is out of range)>Other?

>107 = Huge Success! Modified, though.You creep up on the balls of your feet. The soldier sees you - their eyes go wide - but you clamp your hand down on their throat and tag them with the stun. They're down."Hostage secure," says the other soldier - you recognize Arctis - before turning to the door, seeing...Nothing. You're sequestered, with the locked-up "corpse" of the other soldier - Eider - in a small cubby-hole off to the side.>Blast her>Melee her as well>Other?

>82 = Basic SuccessYou reach out as she passes, smashing the flimsy door, and throw her back away from you. She scrambles for her sidearm, but you toss Eider on her, and she wheezes as his armored body slams the air from her lungs. You aim your pistol right at her head."Bang."+Training exercise complete,+ says the computer. The holograms fade away, leaving your surroundings a blank white series of pillars, walls, etc.Task Force Anobis-Alpha "Womp Rat Fuckers" stands arrayed before you."Alright, soldiers, what did we learn?"An Alpha steps up."Advantage in numbers means nothing if your enemy can use their soldiers more effectively!"You nod. "Correct."Another soldier - a Charlie - steps forward, as the last steps back."Use your enemies mistakes to their full potential, sir!""A good lesson, if not the one I was trying to teach."Arctis steps forward."The sacrifice of the many can be worth saving the few, if it results in mission success."You nod at her."Alright, an hour's rest. Then, you're doing this again - from the other side."The group groans a little. Beta and Charlie are beaten pretty bad - they've got some bruises that didn't look necessary.>R&R>Talk to Darkeyes>Actually, no rest for the wicked>Other?
>>1087628>Talk to DarkeyesDebrief them as well and make sure that the newbies can see that as well, we want to make sure they know that we do the same things they do, helps build trust in the process
>>1087628>Talk to Darkeyes
>>1087628>Talk to DarkeyesAsk for their evaluation of the squads
You pull the Darkeyes into a briefing room. You sit around the table. You have a few droids grab some food and water. "Alright, I want evaluations on your squads," you say."Alpha tried to direct assault. They're skilled soldiers, but they need to think more creatively," replies Breeze. "They just walked into my killbox.""Bravo seemed to internalize my training, at least a little," Hitscan says. "I saw some grapple harnesses. Too bad Mort beat 'em all up before they could use them."Tearer finishes his water. "Charlie got a good drop on me. Rolled a flash under the door, forced me to shield my eyes, then burst in full force. I had to take one of them hand-to-hand; then Gamma caught me.""Echo and Bravo were woefully unprepared for hand-to-hand, speaking of," sneers Mortician. "A blind taunton could've posed more of a threat. They also seemed to expect ambushes in the building, not outside.""So, Cain," Hitscan says. "What's your evaluation of Gamma?">Positive>Negative>Let's wait and see>Other?
>>1088215Lets wait and see.

"Right now, I can't really be sure of them. They showed initiative and adaptability, but I have to wonder how much of their success came from Hitscan's fuckup." You glare at Hitscan, along with Breeze. "Also, they screwed up the extraction. I took them both down real easy. They need to be more careful."Now...>Moar trainin (don't worry, it'll be one opposed roll, contained to one post)>INTO ZE FRAY>Other

The exercise goes well - for you.Hitscan's a terror with his pack, darting around the sniper's sightlines, preventing them from getting good shots. Meanwhile, Breeze is having no trouble taking shots of her own. You keep it tight, and Mort cuts apart some tripwires in the doorframe. You loop around the ground floor, and blow a hole in the floor just behind the staircase, causing the entirety of Echo to fall through. You climb up, blast through the staircase with Tearer's shield, have a hand-to-hand with Charlie, rip apart the snipers, and eventually encounter the bulk of the forces clustered in the hostage room. You order masks on, toss some tear gas grenades, and wait. Alpha and Bravo storm out, looking for you - but they find Tearer and Mortician, alone. You can almost hear them piss their pants. You use your saber to go through a wall, and find Gamma using their masks to tough it out. You take them, not without incurring a couple knocks to the head, and grab the droid. You haul it to a window, and hand it off to Hitscan, who jets off with it, to the doorway.+Exercise complete. Victory - attackers.+After some R&R, you head to dinner. You sit with the Darkeyes, as is custom, but the WRFs sit near you. Some of them are probably in earshot."I'll reiterate that the entire taskforce needs to update their CQC skills," remarks Mortician."And our snipers need to learn how to deter a jetpack user," replies Hitscan. "Although that's unlikely to come up."Through a mouthful of food, Tearer says, "Echo needs to learn to expect attacks from unexpected angles.""You need to learn manners, Tearer," Breeze laughs. She goes serious. "Our snipers need to refresh on counter-sniping.""It's arguable that the taskforce as a whole needs a refresher on creative thinking," says Hitscan. "Their defenses were all too predictable - Imperial standard."What do you say about the taskforce?>Positive (point out something they did well)>Negative (point out something they need improvement on)>Other
>>1088579>>Positive (point out something they did well)>>Negative (point out something they need improvement on)Say some positive things to encourage them and keep morale up, but also point out things they could work on so they know what to do better on.
>>1088579>positive >we are able to point out the flaws that more or less should be easy to fix in a short amount of time.
Please, write-ins encouraged. If all you say is something I write, there'll be no bonuses.
>>1088579>Positive (point out something they did well)They were properly tenacious, fierce in their defense and did have solid layers set up. All of the points brought up we're due to the failure of Imperial training not of their spirit, we have a group of proper soldiers on our hands. Luckily we're not Imperials and now we can move on to refining them.
>>1088616>>1088579I'll change to that.
"The problem wasn't with Womp Rat. The problem was with the way they fought.""Sir?""They do things too much by the book. They're trained too well. They don't think for themselves enough. They fought tenaciously, but there's only so much attitude and willpower have to do with it; they need to think creatively."The Darkeyes nod in agreement.>Now, let's begin the investigation at...>The miner's territory>The farmer's territory>The space stationor...>EVEN MOAR TRAYNINor...>Other
