Beast Wars QuestCharacter info pastebin (will be filled upon completion of character creation): https://pastebin.com/fqsyvZJwTwitter: https://twitter.com/BeastWarsQuestGeneral Rules10 min voting period after each main post. Write-ins votes are welcomed/encouraged. Votes that are non-contradictory and add to the narrative will be considered. Think 'Rule of Cool' Combat mechanics/skill test will be done using best three out of five rolls of 1d100, unless otherwise specified. Modifiers may come into play depending on the MC's statistics which can improve odds and vice versa as the QM sees fit. The QM will do their best to inform players of when such modifiers will come up during votes. (Example: Aim at a target at long range with a scattershot weapon will require a higher roll to make a successful hit than a normal blaster weapon). Training with other bots and successful missions can add to your overall abilities. Strong character relationships with your comrades can also benefit the MC as it will improve battle synergy and moral (less likely to want to fall back/retreat). Of course the vice versa can come into play as well. A failed mission may have consequences but result in unforeseen outcomes (In the show, Tarantulus, Blackarachnia, & Quickstrike were supposed to secure an energon post. The Maximals interfered, resulting in the loss of the post BUT Tarantulus gained a new lair.). A Predacon can always sabotage missions to make other bots look incompetent as well, just hope you’re persuasive enough to do so and watch out for those Also keep an eye out at your energon build up levels; too much time in robot mode outside of a structure, such as a base can cause negative impacts on your combat maneuvers/skill test, including potential loss of spark. In the event of loss of spark, pending the results of a vote, a time lapse in the narrative will happen and a new stasis pod will fall. (Roll for new character or with a high relation level, a blank protoform will descend and your allies will reignite your spark)Last time on Beast Wars QuestYou followed Optimus and Airazor back towards their base, with the stasis pod in tow. You learned abit about both sides off the conflict when you were discovered by Scorponok, who you made quick work of, and Tarantulus who landed a devastating attack on Airazor sending her plummeting. As the battle continues, Optimus has called upon Warpath to help her before she suffers more damage.
Rolled 14, 66, 8 = 88 (3d100)Ok so leaving off from last thread, we were at a bit of a cliffhanger. There were several new votes afterwards which broke the tie so lets proceed>>Attempt to transform, run and catch her (high roll needed to her lower elevation)So I'm gonna need some dice rolls from everyoneIn the meantimeTarantulus attack, dodgeOptimus attack
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>1734092Let's hope for decent manure.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>1734092Is she gonna land on sharp pointy rocks or something? They are made of metal aren't they?Should we put her in our pod if shes unconscious?
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>1734092
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>1734092
>>1734113Yea they're metal robots 1) she was hit by one of Scorponok's missiles in beast mode2) When Tarantulas hit her with his attack cyber venom it causes paralysis and system shutdowns. Being a flier she basically a plane crashing, 3) As for terrain, its rocky and uneven, but not overly sharp/jagged. Still if there's a crit fail, it'll cause her to go into stasis lock meaning she'll be out of action for awhile. Provided you can get her back to the Maximal base>Should we put her in our pod if shes unconscious?Thats definitely an option. So long as the pod remains undamaged. Will make it easier to carry her back.
Choosing to listen to Optimus order, you leap and charge back towards Airazor. Whatever the sneaky spider hit her with is preventing her from doing anything to escape her fall. “Warpath, transform” with a wild roar, you transform and leap towards her. Even with your speed, you’re questioning whether you can reach her in time. But that’s not going to stop you from making the effort. You lunge toward where she’s gonna hit the ground; this one’s going to be closeRolls 77, 55, 50You manage to reach where she is and keep her from hitting the ground, but it was less of a catch and more of her landing on top of you. You’re grateful she’s a smaller bot or that might have damaged you, still her momentum knocks you both to the ground. Tarantulas cackles, “Stupid Maximals, shouldn’t turn your back on a spider.” He uses his spider leg guns opening fire on you and Airazor. >Tarantulas attack Rolled 14His shots are unfocused; probably from his mocking laughter. You manage to roll yourself and Airazor out of the harm’s way.“Predacons gloat too much,” Optimus fires his shotgun arm at the spider.>Optimus attack Rolled 6 >Tarantulas dodge Rolled 66Optimus shot is slow, and the spider has no problem dodging out of the way. He manages to take cover of the rocks he ambushed you from. He continues to laugh.“Optimus, don’t worry I’ve got something just for you too.” You can’t see the spider at the moment, but know where he’s hiding. Optimus is still in cover behind the pod, but from what it looks like he’s got two missile launchers on his shoulders and judging from his stance from your sparring match earlier it looks like he’s gonna take to the skies. Airazor is barely conscious, only a soft moan creeps past her painful expression. There are several swirling purple energy waves moving around her robot form and that weird missile/dart is still stuck on her.What are you going to do?>Remove the dart, have Airazor return to beast mode for internal repairs.>Leave the dart and Airazor, attack the spider with Optimus>Taunt the spider; draw his fire towards you (Small chance that an attack could hit Airazor as well as you)>Write in

>Remove the dart, have Airazor return to beast mode for internal repairsYou reach down towards the dart and pull it from her superstructure. It comes out with relative easy. Airazor groans a bit, but still looking rough.“You should return to beast mode, repair yourself.”“Ugh…yea. Beast…mode…” You give her a bit of room as she returns to her falcon form. She looks back up towards you still lying against the ground. “Thanks for helping me.”You simply nod as you look over towards where Tarantulas was at, trying to determine your next move. “Have to admit I’m a bit surprised, I wasn’t sure if you’d try. You seemed more likely to keep fighting than rescue someone. Maybe I have you pegged wrong.”You’re not quite sure how to respond to that. Not that you really have time. Battle is still raging; talking can wait. “Optimus, flighty mode.” Optimus takes off for the skies and fires off two missiles at the spider’s cover.>Rolled 14, 55The first missile goes hitting far behind the spider’s cover while the second missile hits against the cover, doing minor damage. It’s still effective mostly.Tarantulas pops out of his cover and returns fire with another odd projectile.>Rolled 75The missile casing breaks apart in midair exposing an energon web net that catches Optimus.Optimus struggles against the webbing entangling him as it appears to be draining his own energon power. Tarantulas loads up another projectile into his weapon launcher.“So long Optimus MINIMAL” He starts to cackle again as he aims for his shot. That laugh is really beginning to grate your servos.>Draw your weapon and rush attack Tarantulas.

>Roar a mighty battle cry, distracting Tarantulas>Draw your weapon and rush attack TarantulasYou look back at Airazor and give her a sly smile “Well you’re right about one thing.” Before she can respond you draw your Halberd and run towards the battle. At last, a real chance for you to let loose in actual combat. >Roll for Roar 82, 46, 40“Tremble in fear Predacon! Warpath hungers for your spark!”Tarantulas aims at the Maximal Leader, when his attention is suddenly drawn towards you. He vaguely remembers the amount of damage you did to Scorponok which causes his claw to twitch, letting the missile loose. “Oh no!” He ducks back behind his rock, preparing his next shot.>Warpath attack rolled 91, 46, 60Gripping your Halberd you swing with intense savagery. Your strike smashes through the rocky cover as he cries out, stumbling back. You look past the debris to see you’ve almost cleaved through his right arm and atleast two of the spider legs have been broken off. You start to stalk your prey.>Tarantulas attack rolled 54>Optimus dodge rolled 59Tarantulas missile barely manages to hit its mark as Optimus attempts a controlled landing. He’s still struggling to get the webs off, but he’s starting to look worse for wear. Airazor is still out of it that she can only look on, helplessly. “Warpath, leave him. We need to withdraw.” You can barely hear Optimus call out as you stalk the spider. “We’re not too far from Maximal territory. We can call for help.”“Tarantulus to Predacons! Back to base! Waspinator, Terrorsaur, get your useless sparks over hear and cover us!” Tarantulus says as he’s trying to crawl away from your terrifying form.Will you disengage or does the fury of battle call to you?>Press the attack, against Tarantulas. (Tarantulas will need to make a better roll than your attack to keep for dying [entering stasis lock])>More predicons?

>>1734670Well there are plenty of stasis pods in space. though it is too soon for another one to fall But yea, if you guys had rolled a few higher numbers, he'd be scrap and rolling for a stasis lock save. Even if he succeeds, it'll be awhile before you see him again.
>>1734734>Press the attack, against Tarantulas. (Tarantulas will need to make a better roll than your attack to keep for dying [entering stasis lock])
>>1734734Let's take one final swing at Tarantulas to try and kill the bastard before he can withdraw. The Predacons have ordered a retreat, after all; the field is ours!But, success or fail on this last attempt to convert a downed spider to a scrapped one, we then join Optimus in getting out of there.

>More Predacons? Hide and set up an ambushYou smirk as the spider is trying to run. Cowards; hardly worth the effort to chase when you can lay out the welcome mat for new opponents? You back step towards Optimus once you’re sure the spider is out of range. Using the fangs on your powerfist you help cut off the web from Optimus. “Thanks.” He immediately returns to beast mode, with a bit of a groan. “We need to get Airazor to a CR chamber as well as myself.” He walks the stasis pod over towards Airazor. She seems a bit apprehensive about getting in. “Not my first choice but it’ll have to do.” She says weakly. You’re a bit surprised her beast form hasn’t repaired her more. Maybe it has to do with what that spider hit her with. “You guys go on ahead. I’ll hold them off.” You say. They both give you a look like your crazy.“Warparth, this is insane. We need to get moving.” That almost sounded like an order. “Both of you are battered up. They’ll catch up to us.” You snarl. It’s a tense few moments, but finally Optimus replies.“Warpath, I’m not going to let you stay out here by yourself against a squad of Predacons.” He just shakes his head with a sigh; he knows your minds made up. “Not alone atleast. As soon as I’m with in com range, I’m sending you back up.”>”I don’t need back up” (fight alone)>”Tell’em to take their time” (maximal reinforcements will eventually join you)>”Tell them to hurry up if they don’t want to miss all the fun” (maiximal reinforcements will join you sooner)>Write in

>”Tell’em to take their time.”Optimus looks back at you. You get the idea he’s in thought maybe wanting to say something but shakes it off. “Just be careful out here. While I know you’re capable and chose otherwise, your actions speak for themselves. I still consider you to be a Maximal.”“You gonna sit around here and rust or you two gonna get going already?”Optimus smirks. “Fight well, Warpath.” He starts moving the stasis pod the way you guys were heading. Airazor just looks back at you, concerned but says nothing. You just nod to her as they head off.You stand their silently for a moment scanning surveying your surroundings.TACTICAL UPDATE Current Energon Levels at 25%At the moment you’re fine. You avoided most damage in the last fight but you’ve gotten a bit of energon built up. You can remain in robot mode but depending on how long the wait and fight drag out, you may end up building a lot of energon radiation.Switching to Beast mode will lower it but your form isn’t meant for fighting aerial combatants, meaning you could be a sitting duck.And then there’s the terrain.You look around the area. Not much in the way of cover. Some hilly areas would be able to conceal you from ground forces like the scorpion did to you, but you recall hearing him call for Terrorsaur and Waspinator. Fliers from what Optimus tells you. They’ll have most of the advantage. You need to find some where that’ll aid you in the fight to come.What would you like to do:>Remain here; look around for a rock formation for concealment>Head to the west, towards Predacon ground; rockier location>Head back towards the north, grasslands with sporadic trees>Head Northeast, forest terrain. Lots of hiding spaces for both sides.>Head south, jungle and swampland, Dark and hard to navigate for fliers; but easy to get lost in.Also>Remain in Robot mode>Return to Beast mode

>Head Northeast, forest terrain. Lots of hiding spaces for both sides.>Return to Beast modeYou quickly transform to lower your energon levels. After thinking about your beast form and what the Maximals told you about the area. Yes, the forest will be better for your form and the trees will lower their maneuverability. Just need to get there before the Predacons show up. Can’t ambush an enemy if they ambush you first.You go into a full sprint. You enjoy this creature’s combination of speed and power. As you are moving your keen senses hear something in the distance. >Stealth 73, 77, 18>Predacon scanning 81, 27You take notice of a rather large insect buzzing by in a hurry, looking back and forth. You also hear a sudden screech from above.“Well, well, well, what have we here?” the red pterodactyl lowers himself down towards your form. “Another Maximal fur ball?”“Bzzzzz, Waspinator doesn’t see Maximals. Cat doesn’t look like Maximal cat bots.” The green one looks around. “Waspinator thinks we should keep heading toward Maximal base.” “My scanners pick up something this way” He starts to circle around you “Tarantulas didn’t specify what it was were looking for. Of course we can always just shoot it for fun? See if the its cat or bot. Terrorsaur, TERRORIZE”Terrorsaur transforms and pulls out a small hand blaster. “What do you say kitty?

>They still don’t know if I’m the protoform their looking for, lets lead this chase to the forestWith Terrorsaur drawing his blaster, you immediately take off towards the woods. “Waspinator, Terrorize!” Both of the Predacons chase after you and you keep trying to evade their shots. For the most part they can’t hit the side of battle cruiser. But the red lizard hits you square on the back.“Hahahaha” Terrorsaur laughs. “Got’em!” They do a fly by as they shot. You try shaking off the hit. Laugh it up. I’ll shove that blaster straight in your exhaust. The three of you resume the chase; a few pot shots detonate around you, getting a bit roughed up. But now you’re at the tree line. You push your beast mode’s speed as fast as you can. >Warpath attack rolls 73, 20, 76You leap at one of the trees using your claws to dig in the bark and swing around, sling shot style, and launch yourself at Terrorsaur. He only has enough time to react with a screech as you pounce him downward. Waspinator breaks left surprised by this act as well, “Lizard bot ok? Waspinator slag dumb cat.”Terrorsaur panics under you.

His attack hurt you but you don’t seem overly damaged. In fact you looked enraged. You snarl with some of Terrorsaurs wires still hanging out of your mouth. Funny, they still haven’t fully realized that you’re not just some jungle cat.“MMmmmm Terrorsaur, nearly scrap by big cat! Waspinator getting out of here!” with that he transforms and takes off. “N-n-no!

Seems that Predacons for all their bravado, run better than they fight.

So is Terrorsaur dead or does he still have his spark?
>>1735819>>See if you can walk back yourself.Can we bring back the remains? I wana see what can be done when robot gets scrapped.
>>1735929He should be fine as long as he gets put back together. This isn't the first time he's lost his head. Hell, the only time he died in the show was falling into lava, and even then that was only because of marketing decision and while he was sinking he was being reformatted into a transmetal as a backdoor to bring him back if the writers needed to.So even his permanent death is ambiguous.
>>1735924Well if you watch the show, alot of shots missed. So yea haha. That and it wouldnt really be a series if you kept killing off characters left and right. You'd need a larger ensemble of bots for it to go the GoT routeIf i did those two, it would probably for another quest, but i would really have to go back and rewatch those. I just really love the original
>>1735929As long as a transformers spark chamber is intact and they haven't suffered permanent damage beyond stasis lock then they're fine, so to speak.The only way we could kill him would be to keep beating the shit out of him after we've torn him limb form limb and then tear out his spark chamber.
>>1735929He still has his spark but like Rhinox once joked "they'll be putting him back together for weeks"

>>1735993haha wow...>>1735999Nice trips. Hmmmm.....Do you want really want Megatron or another pred? cause i had someone else in mind but i'm totally flexible haha
>>1736005It wouldn't be permanent, but it'd fuck with him and that's the whole point.
>>1736018Fuck it. I vote Megatron.With the stipulation that maximals are inbound and would keep Megatrons fuckery at low levels.
>>1736018As long as the maximals are inbound I say unleash the HAM, let the PORK FLOW
>>1736018Bring in the pain.
>>1736018I vote for Scott McNeil
Ok ok we're getting alot of ideas flowing so holding writing the next part for a bit.NEW VOTEWarpath decides he's gonna take a 'trophy' of sorts. Due to a low tech skill, rolls for salvage will be high and specific components will require crits.So what would you like to take>Head (can just take since you've pretty much already got it)>Body (while mangled, will slow down your progress to Maximal base)>Weapons (hand gun only, his shoulder guns are scrap)>T-cog (thats just nasty and creative, love it)>Memory Banks (Inside his head if you dont want the whole thing)>Spark (requires attack roll; might get interrupted by newcomers presence)EDIT: Wow ok then, you guys want the Megs, well then, roll me 2d100s with your vote1) to see if Megatron is alone2) if Maximal reinforcements arrive in time.
Rolled 2, 72 = 74 (2d100)>>1736072>Head (can just take since you've pretty much already got it)>Weapons (hand gun only, his shoulder guns are scrap)>T-cog (thats just nasty and creative, love it)
Rolled 59, 44 = 103 (2d100)>>1736072>>T-cog (thats just nasty and creative, love it)Hopefully we roll high enough that Joe Convoy comes to our rescue.
Rolled 97 (1d100)>>1736072Weapons (hand gun only, his shoulder guns are scrap)
Rolled 23, 71 = 94 (2d100)>>1736072>T-cog (thats just nasty and creative, love it)
>>1736091Sorry wrong series>>17360961 more d100 please
>>1736110>Sorry wrong seriesI'm pretty sure this is the series that has Joe Convoy in it.
>>1736128This is the US CGI Beast Wars. I think he was in one of the other ones (and i'm not using those)
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>1736110
>>1736134No. Big purple dinosaur, says YEEESSSSS alot. Joe Convoy. You never hear the Bee in the City scriptreading? Good stuff.
Ok. having connection issues, but should be fine. Got the encounter rolls logged.Now roll for T-cog (Need 85+) to succeed>>1736162I have not. I'll look that up
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>1736199Okay.
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>1736199Come on dice, give me a t-cog.
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>1736199
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>1736199
>>1736203>>1736206>>1736208Surgeons we are not. Oh well, at least we've made more of a mess with his innards so hey, win-win scenario right there.
>>1736219We are a massive angry rip and tear cat.
>>1736218Whoops, spoke too soon!Let's hang it on our mantel when we build one!
>>1736206>>1736218 Well i'm not disappointed by these rolls>>1736222Indeed
Also I vote that Warpath is voiced by Clancy Brownhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xcg0o1MOmKw
>>1736310I vote Steven Barr : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vOg-nLWe71w
So warpath is a big viol;ent indepented guy that uses a halberd anyone else getting reminded of Lu-Bu
>>1736388https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94Y-Ehl9CCkclearly the best option for a voice
>See if you can walk back yourselfYou slowly start to get up and stretch. As you yawn, you spit out some of Terrorsaur’s circuity that got stuck in your teeth. Not the most appetizing sensation. As you are beginning to walk towards the direction you think the Maximal’s base is you stop for a moment. Why not take a trophy?You start looking over the heap that was Terrorsaur for a proper trophy. No one wants to see that ugly mug each day, so you bat the head away. His blaster is a bit on the dainty side, not a suitable firearm for a commando like you. But you know what would be amusing? Taking his T-cog. It’s not like there’s a spare parts depot anywhere. That you know of atleast. So why not?>Rolls 39, 5, 23, 90So you start off kind of rough. Parts look like parts when they’re this mangled. But after looking you find it. Looks a bit damage but you can get it. So you dig in your cat claws and start tearing him to get to it, even biting down on it to yank it out. You hear a pop but the cog doesn’t come out. Oh right, it’ll probably be easier if I transformed. “Warpath, transform.” What can you say other then something to be said about doing it with your beast mode? Makes shredding bots so easy and yet still satisfying. With a few snips of your claw fingertips, you manage to get the cog free, but you notice it seems smaller than you expected. That’s when you noticed the other half of it still inside Terrorsaur. Slag. Next time I’ll get a service droid to do this crap. I’m not blasted doctor.As you stand there with your half cog, you notice the shadows grow around you. But not from the trees; trees don’t make heavy footsteps at least that you know of. “Well now, what have we here? Quite the brutal display for a MAXIMAL. Yes…”You turn to see a large purple robot already transformed. His insignia clearly that of yet another Predacon.“Looking to get scrapped too?”The bot growls, “Charming. Here I was wondering, what could have frightened off so many of my soldiers? Sending them back to my base half to scrap? Even this sniveling coward who kept going on about some savage beast?”Man this guy talks a lot. It’s beginning to grind my gears. “You lookin’ to join them in the junk yard?”“Such brutality doesn’t sit well with the Maximals, no. So I’m going to give you one and only one chance. Join me or be shredded piece by piece.” Heh, must be my day for kicking Predacon tail. As you turn towards him, you notice the sounds of buzzing again. Waspinator is back with them and someone else. “Wahahaha. For the glory of the royalty!” Another flier; maybe I should trade in my halberd for a flyswatter. Though this one has a large blaster that spits out flames. Though now there are three of them. And I’m still in a rough spot.“So whats it going to be? Join us or die? You’re out numbered and out gunned.”(Cont.)
I also see Stone Cold Steve Austin as Warpath
You hear the sounds of two blaster bolts fly down and hit Megatron in the chest.“Not so outnumbered now is he, Predacon.” You see a white tiger not unlike yourself standing off to the side with a large blaster.“Cheetor MAXIMIZE!”“Dinobot MAXIMIZE!”You see the other Predacons contemplate the situation as Megatron growls louder.“Heads up fellow bot! Optimus sent us to find you.” The yellow and blue robot calls out. Sounds like a kid. The tall robot with him draws a spinning sword and a spinning shield, looks like he’s aching for a fight.“Lets slag them now!” he roars.“Not now Dinobot. Optimus wants us to get Warpath back to the Maximal base.”What will you do? You’re still partially damage and currently in the middle of a crossfire. >Fall back to the rest of the Maximals>Draw your weapon and charge>Grab a piece of Terrorsaur and throw it at them, mockingly>Take up Megatron on his offer, see where this goes>Write in
>>1736419>Fall back to the rest of the Maximals
>>1736419We could be really devious and "join" but backstab and sabotage his base.Or join just to terrorize Tarantulus and then run off to somewhere that neither predacons and maximals can find us for a while.
>>1736419>Fall back to the rest of the MaximalsWe're brutally cunnin' and cunningly brutal. We ain't stupid.Retreat, heal up, then get ready for more guerilla campaigning against the Predacons.I see us as a combination LRRP and terror campaign for the Maximals.
>Fall back to the rest of the Maximals>Grab a piece of Terrorsaur and throw it at them, mockinglyfuck megatron we aint nobody's lackie
>>1736419>Write inSay, I'll give you the same deal I gave Optimus, Beat me in combat, and I will follow you.... for now.
>>1736419>Laugh in Megatrons face.>"No.">Draw your weapon and charge
>>1736432LRRP = Long Range Recon Patrol for those who don't know.This means we go out on very long patrols, alone, to recon an area. We also use this time to terrorize the Predacons. Sometimes we'll savage them enough to cripple a bot but let it leave. Other times we'll kill a bot and leave it displayed for the Predacons to find, always taking a trophy.
>>1736429>>1736435>>1736437Guys, if we do this, we get a change to scrap megatron 1 on 1, and everyone has to watch.
>>1736436Supporting this. It fits our character.
>>1736419>>Fall back to the rest of the MaximalsAlso, OP you gonna have custom predacons/maximals or just the show ones aside from us? Transmetal Airrazor is cute, but she's the only waifu bot and she's taken.
>>1736441on the other hand we might have to follow him
>>1736445I'm fine either way.>>1736436Supporting to trial by combat or whatever.
>>1736443Yes there will be votes on either custom maximal/predacons since in this canon there are plenty of stasis pods in space. You can chose from some of the toyline 'presets' if you find a stasis pod before anyone else or you can always reprogram a protoform (usually more of a predacon thing)As for Transmetal Airazor1) She'll have to survive to when we get to transmetals (not sure how long that'll be)2) She's mostly taken, you could always make a play for her. though at the moment, she finds you a complete enigma and hard to pin down what kind of bot you are aside from one that loves battle. Also she's not the only female bot currently or possibly in the future
>>1736459We are NOT cucking Silverbolt.
Alright voting closed. Writing it up
>>1736468Then we just make Silverbolt our bitch and cuck Airazor.Silverbolt becomes a sissy bitch, we assert our dominance.Easy-peasy.
>>1736446>>1736442>>1736436Eh, we already said we'd support the Maximals and the OP has said before that we couldn't play both sides. I'd rather not be a flip flopping traitor either.So, honestly this isn't really in character for us.
>>1736475I'm fine with that.
>>1736475>>1736468Silverbolt was the one dating Black Arachnia. You're thinking Tigatron.
>>1736478I said you cant get caught doing it and with the 'impact' you've made on the Predacons, Megatron would most likely put you in a Rampage situation. Also since the maximals made it here, it'll make turning on them obvious.
>>1736478I'm doing this>>1736436 more to have a go at megatron. I don't really want to join predacons.This here >>1736431 was me throwing ideas out there to see how it would stick.I literally want to see him run with his tail between his legs.
>>1736487No, he mentioned other female bots, and the one that came to mind was Blackarachnia.
Rolled 23, 35, 52, 13, 23, 63 = 209 (6d100)Ok guys im gonna need 3d100 for evasion from you guysMegatron attackWaspinator attackInferno attackTigatron attackCheetor attackDinobot attack

>>1736538yes, i'm counting it due to my last second change.
>>1736545Oh thank god.
>Fall back to the rest of the MaximalsYou are commando who craves the fight and while this one is enticing, you’re also no fool. >Rolls 7, 15, 14 (I made a mistake so I’m just giving you guys this one)“Covering fire!” you shout as you go to kick Terrorsaurs head at Megatron. It smacks him square in the face. He shakes his head giving you major stink eye as you turn on a pivot and transform back into your Sabertooth form and make a run for the other Maximals.“Gaaah! Blast that feline!” Megatron shots to his troops as he takes aim with his T-Rex head beam cannon. His troops follow suit.>Megatron attack 23>Warpath evasion 80,38,76His shot is wild and completely misses.“Waspinator will get him!” you hear the shots of his dart missile launcher coming for you>Waspinator attacks 35>Warpath evasion 38, 4, 5This one strikes a bit closer and you stumble a bit. Maybe you’re a bit more damaged than you were willing to admit.“By royal command!”>Inferno’s attack 52>Warpath evasion 88, 5, 54The ant’s cannon are powerful and loud, and almost accurate. You narrowly avoid his shot but make it look like you totally knew what you were doing dodging his shot.“Light’em up heroes!” Cheetor calls out.“You got it little cat.” The white tiger changes his target this time; take a shot at the fire ant.>Tigatron attack 13The erratic movements of Inferno make him hard to pinpoint and his shot misses.>Cheetor attack 23Takes a few shots at Waspinator but he seems to be aiming where he was and not where he will be. “Eat slag!” Dinobot calls out as his eyes shine bright and two green energy beams fire at Megatron>Dinobot attack roll 63His beams slam into Megatron’s chest, causing him to take a step backwards. “Insolent traitor.” The saurian roars back.“Nice moves cat. But now we need to bolt. Maximals, let’s go!” The three Maximals take a series of suppression shots as you bolt pass them. They soon follow. You can hear the bellowing of the Predacon leader behind you.“Blast you Maximal filth. You’ll know the wrath of Megatron next time. Yeeesssss.”---sometime later---"Hey nice job back there with Lizard beak." Cheetor stands next to you. "Far more excessive than I would've handled it but to each their own." Tigatron replies looking at you."Terrorsaur was a fool and a nuisance. Anything you did, he'd earned. Good riddance for now." Dinobot says without looking at you. You cant help but notice a toothy smile. "You other cats could learn a thing or two from this one.""Hey!" Cheetor growls>Make chit chat with the Maximals>Just say "Thanks">Play it cool for now. Let them tease each other while you keep quiet>Write In
>>1736588>Play it cool for now. Let them tease each other while you keep quiet
>>1736588>>Play it cool for now. Let them tease each other while you keep quiet>Look at the Maximals, gauging how strong each of them might be.
>Dinoboi\t seems like a kindred spirit Tlk with him
>>1736588>>Play it cool for now. Let them tease each other while you keep quiet
>Play it cool for now. Let them tease each other while you keep quietYou let the three of them raze on each other while you see what Optimus has to work with. The cheetah seems a bit of young for this. Sure he’s got heart, but he’s a bit more talkative and you can hear his inexperience in his words. Still signs of potential, with some proper training. A bit of an idealist; probably hangs on Primal’s every word.The white tiger has the feel of a grizzled veteran. While he seems to come off as stoic and a cool customer, you can see he’s got a warriors look about him. Not like the velociraptor, but he’s got ‘that’ look. I’d say this is the cat Airazor was referring to.Now the raptor, he’s my kind from what I’ve seen. The weapon choices, the way he carries himself and how the entire way back, he’s been surveying the terrain, despite being in their own territory.“So,” Tigatron speaks up. “The quiet kind. I get that.”You turn to face him. “What’s to get?”“You like to be with your own thoughts. I prefer the calm and quiet of the wild.”Cheetor pops back up. “Wouldn’t kill you to visit more often though would it?” Tigatron sighs, “I suppose it wouldn’t but if I was at the base, who’d keep an eye on the Predacons if they decide to linger too far north?” “Hey Airazor goes on long scouting missions and she manages to find her way back.”Tigatron smiles, “I suppose that’s true as well.”Dinobot, “It was cause she was out in the field doing her job, that she found the protoform, furball.” Cheetor’s ears pull back and you notice Tigatron whisker twitch a bit. You take it they’re not fond of Dinobot’s assessment of the situation. >”Watch it with the furball cracks.”>”Dinobot’s right. Who knows what I would be if she hadn’t showed up?”>”Nothing wrong with spending time with comrade’s? How else are you supposed to trust the people around you? To know you can depend on them?”>”I was doing just fine without her.”>”Still not too sure that this was the right decision.” >Write in

>>1736627Pretty sure that comment will piss off dinobot a bit. Hes got pride and a warriors ego for sure.
>>1736632Let me rephrase that, made a typo also.>I was awake and out of my pod before either of you maximals or predacons reached me.
Voting closed. Writing.
>>1736634so we get a fight with the best maximal even better
>>1736634The conversation is addressing Cheetor, we are agreeing with Dinobot.
>Dinobot’s right. Who knows what I would be if she hadn’t showed up?”The three Maximals turn to face you. You only hear a satisfied humph from the raptor while Tigatron seems to notice the wisdom of your words.“Yea but,..”“I was awake and out of my pod before either of you Maximals or Predacons reached me. That could have been you in pieces out there.”“Heh, the cheetah maybe” Dinobot snaps.Cheetor seems a bit surprised by your answer. He has a bit of a defeated expression as he stops walking for a moment. Tigatron turns back to him.“Remember little cat, not everyone has their memories intact when they emerge from their stasis pods.” He places a paw on the kids shoulder “Even I had trouble until I saw you guys stand up for myself and Snowstalker.”Hmm seems like my case isn’t unique. >”How much further to the base?”>”Relax kid, no harm done.”>”How do you think you’d handle it Dinobot if it’d been you instead of Airazor?”>Write in

>>1736646>>”How do you think you’d handle it Dinobot if it’d been you instead of Airazor?”Cheetor should totally be our official unofficial little brother stand in. Dude just wants to be the best.

>”How do you think you’d handle it Dinobot if it’d been you instead of Airazor?”Dinobot pauses for a moment as Tigatron and Cheetor catch up.“I haven’t been briefed on how your encounter with her went. Feel free to enlighten me.”“She talked. A lot.” Your response gets a chuckle out of Dinobot but Tigatron didn’t seem to care for your snark. “Lizard lips would probably have greeted you the traditional Predacon way,” he does his best to mimic Dinobot’s voice. “Join the Maximals or be scrap!”Dinobot flicks his tongue in his mouth, “Go cough up a hairball.”Cheetor simply laughs. “Dinobot’s not exactly known for his bed side manner.”Dinobot snaps back “I would’ve told him who he was and if he didn’t listen I’d stuffed him back in the pod and let Rhinox repair his common sense circuits.”Cheetor, “See what I mean?”Dinobot looks away. “Either way, I wouldn’t have been out their alone. She’s fortunate Optimus was within com range, let alone that Warpath didn’t immediately attempt to blast her like Inferno did.”>”She didn’t seem like threat, pointless to attack her.”>”Wouldn’t have minded a good fight to work out the stiff joints.”>”Like you could’ve gotten me back in”>”Would’ve been a waste of a sleek superstructure”>Write in

>”She didn’t seem like a threat; pointless to attack her”“Airazor is a warrior in her own right. You should show more respect.” Tigatron snaps.“Yeah, she’s capable.” Cheetor adds. “I mean she’s not like Dinobot, looking to scrap every chance. But still she can fight.”“Exactly what I was saying. She didn’t come at me guns blazing. She just kept trying to get me to join her without really knowing what she was going on about. Figured she wasn’t looking for a scrap so didn’t see any point.”Tigatron seems to ease up. Touchy, touchy, old timer. Heh, if you really want me to rustle your servos….“Besides, Would’ve been a waste of a sleek superstructure. Rwaor.” “Huh?” Cheetor tilts his head looking back at you as you can feel Tigatrons narrows his gaze at you. Must’ve struck a nerve. There something there I don’t know about. Or maybe the bird’s gotta thing for cats. Dinobot just shakes his head.“By the pit, finally! We’re here!” The four of you stand along a ledge overlooking a cliff side. There by a series of water falls is a space ship. A familiar space ship. Not quite what you were expecting, but you guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Guess this is a place to lay my head once in a while. Well, when I’m not out scrapping bots of course. We’ll see.That’s it for tonight. Gonna stick around abit to answer questions, comments, etcThanks again for coming and hope to see you guys next time on Beast Wars!
>>1736719God that was sooo cool. Can't wait till we get to BUST SOME HEADS!
what do Dinobot, Optmius, and Megatron think of us?
>>1736719Thanks for the thread boss, remember to ARCHIVE
>>1736719Its been a while since I saw the show, why couldn't they ever re-position the ship to not hang over a cliff? Like try dragging or jerry rigging something to move it somewhere more stable.
>>1736722Man this last thread wasn't enough action for you? Looks like i've got my work cut out for me Glad you're enjoying it. Hope to see you again next time.>>1736724I'd say these are the base understandingsDinobot - unfamiliar, ally>"Finally another bold warrior willing to take the fight to Megatron and the Predacons."Optimus Primal - positive>"He's rough around the edges, like Dinobot, but his actions show that there's the heart of a Maximal in there. He needs to relax a bit more, if only to avoid frying a circuit board."Megatron - hostile, unfamiliar>Blast that feline! I'll skin him the next time he dares show himself.
>>1736725Ah thank you for reminding me. I'll be sure to take care of that>>1736727Only thing i could think of was that the Axalon's engines were mostly fried and without proper equipment to lift it up there was no way to move it safely. Hell in season three it broke apart and collapsed into the sea below
And Archived. Thanks again folks for coming out.I'll be sure to update the character sheet. Next thread is again looking like Wed, though if some time pops up might do a bit on Fri night.
>>1736729Thanks for running, CoP
I've just realised something. Our character's called Warpath right? Is he slowly going to start using combat based onomatopoeia at random points?
Was a neat read, glad to see ya again OP.One thing you might want to work on as far as writing goes is in combat, having your posts be >diceroll here>one or two sentence about the attack missing>repeatMakes it not flow quite so well. Would be better if you were to have your posts be somewhat more narrative focused and the crunch/rolls were not always visible on our end, does that make any sense?Still, glad to see ya back even if I missed the thread. When are you planning on running next?Also, since someone mentioned us being cunning and brutal, have an Ork-looted Optimus Prime;
>>1737330Yea I can see that. I'll think I'll try that next time. I was just making sure people saw how I was using the results of the rolls to show what were hits and what were misses. I'm still trying to find a nice in between spot. But I think people are understanding it enough for me to omit them. Like I said I'll give it a try and see how it goes. As for when the next thread is, definitely next Wednesday and possibly Friday. I don't wanna say 100% since stuff likes to pop up on me at the last min which I hate.>>1737096Maybe, I really want to make sure I can find his voice so to remain consistent. I don't feel the original show did it too much but I'm trying to go for that same tone while staying as close as possible to the original characters mannerisms. But once in awhile if I think it'll fit or might add some levity I might put it in or if that's what the write in wants as well.
>>1737369>>1736732Well, we're a Tiger, not a tank. And we have already made a ' Rwaor' when talking about Airazor's sleek superstructure, so it'd probably make more sense to continue along that line rather then drift into Kabooms and Blams just because our Autobot namesake did them.
