Beast Wars Two QuestCharacter info pastebin: https://pastebin.com/fqsyvZJwTwitter: https://twitter.com/BeastWarsQuestGeneral Rules15 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 3 out of 5 rolls of 1d100, unless otherwise specified. Modifiers may come into play depending on the PC's actions 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). Strong character relationships with NPCs can also benefit the PC as it will improve battle synergy, interactions, skill test, etc. 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 with a persuasive skill check. Just becareful as they may do the same. 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: We went off the rails and decided it was time to just start over.....REBOOT!
"ALERT, STASIS POD BEGINNING PLANET FALL."Your core consciousness begins to stir with the faint echo of a disembodied voice. Darkness surrounds you and you feel weightless. There are flashes; vague and unclear. Of what though? A ship being loaded. Others like you, in a similar situation being brought aboard. "WARNING, SCANNERS DETECT LARGE READINGS OF ENERGON RADIATION ON PLANET SURFACE. ALTERNATE FORM WILL BE NECESSARY TO PREVENT PERMINATE DAMAGE OR LOSS OF SPARK. POD WILL COMMENCE DNA SCAN SEQUENCE UPON LANDING."Planet? Landing? What's going on? Where's your ship? What could've happened while you have been in stasis? Ok don't panic. These's stasis pods are supposed to have a basic landing procedures and start up programs, but you should be able to influence certain aspects. What should You proiritize first?>Pod, activate distress beacon (Maximal and Predacon scanners will be alerted to your landing and actively try to reach you. Chance for potential reprogramming by Predacons and chance for combat)>Pod, scan for cybertronian signatures (will land closer to one of the two bases-influence to starting faction)>Pod, focus on landing, prioritze safe landing zones (list of landscapes will be given and voted on. PC can land in remote area)>Pod, begin accessing protoform base programming (will influence beast mod selection and landscape selections refined)>The pod's programming will know what to do. I'll let it handle it for the moment being. (Dice rolls for landing zone)
>>1989685>>Pod, focus on landing, prioritze safe landing zones (list of landscapes will be given and voted on. PC can land in remote area)And good to try a second 'bot.
Oh sweet, I'm hoping we can create a character based on infiltration and espionage this time. so>>1989685>Pod, begin accessing protoform base programming (will influence beast mod selection and landscape selections refined)Lets do this.
>>1989685>Pod, begin accessing protoform base programming (will influence beast mod selection and landscape selections refined)
>>1989693...Isn't trying to espionage what led to the reboot?
>>1989724Having a character that was clearly not meant for espionage, and doing it incredibly wrong, is what lead to a reboot. kek. But that's just my opinion. I'd like to get something that is stealthy, but can hit fast. Like a snake or something.
>>1989735I'd be fine with a stealth character like a sniper or saboteur but infiltration isn't my cup of tea
>>1989746I can agree on a sniper and saboteur. That seems pretty cool. I wanted to be a snake just so we could join the preds and fuck them up from the inside this time. :p
>>1989746Seconding this preference for a Sniper. A Chameleon would be ideal.
>>1989685>>Pod, focus on landing, prioritze safe landing zones (list of landscapes will be given and voted on. PC can land in remote area)
>>1989757I'd say an owl they so we can get into a good position
it seems like majority agree on sniper for our build this time, what form do you guys wanna go for? a chameleon should be able to blend into and disguise itself and an owl will have air superiority
>>1989770They are both pretty small and Owls do have natural camouflage
>>1989685>Pod, begin accessing protoform base programming (will influence beast mod selection and landscape selections refined)Beast Wars 2: Electric Boogaloo begin!
>Pod, begin accessing protoform base programming (will influence beast mod selection and landscape selections refined)You decide that to best deal with this unusual situation, its best to be prepared for whatever you may encounter.ACKNOWLEDGED, ATTEMPTING ACCESS PROGRAMING ALGORITMS....The computer begins bring up a series of basic functions>Infantry>Demolitions >Scout >Skirmisher>Commando >Defender>Aerial>Amphibious (Nautical)>Saboteur>Infiltration>Reconaissance>Specialist>Spy/Double Agent>Ambusher>Guerilla Warfare>Ninja WarriorAs you contemplate the options, you also try to remember that certain sized robots do better at certain functions. With your superstructure lacking a final form, you’re in a prime positon to optimize your decision. Of course, that’s just what builder bots and programmers suggest, but what do they know?>Small, fast and agile >Medium, standard staple for most bots>Large and in charge is for me
>>1989813I was seriously considering naming it that but decided against it at the last minute
>>1989822>>Reconaissance>Small, fast and agile
>>1989822>Infiltration (Sniper)>Small, fast and agile
>>1989822>Guerilla WarfareThink this is sniper>Small, fast and agile
>>1989813KEK this guy :)>>1989822>Infiltration>Small, fast and agilethis
>>1989822>Skirmisher>Small, fast and agile
Im not sure which one is sniper i assumed it was infiltration, tho.
>>1989834>>1989835>>1989838Are we all aiming to be a sniper? If so maybe we should just vote for that> Sniper
>>1989863Infiltrators are more spys
>>1989866I think so, if everybody is ok with that. >Sniper
>>1989863Sniper can fit a series of these which is why i was keeping it mostly vague due to these being a base programmingEx. Warpath was a Commando but his specialization was Frontline combatant which made him optimum for melee combat
>>1989885I see, so a sniper can fit in any of these choices. Thank you
>>1989885The thing is almost half of these could be a sniper
>>1989822>Infiltration>Medium, standard staple for most botsMore effective if we're everyman sized. More about being forgettable than noticeable.
>>1989893exactly my point. You can be an Aerial sniper, Amphibous Sniper, etcIt just gives me more to work with when I look up animal types depending on the biome you guys choseIts partially how we got sabertooth tiger as a beast mode
>>1989871No, Spy/Double Agent is the spy class. I guess I'm voting for a class with good stealth/disguise abilities in the field, whichever that is?
>>1989918That sounds like infiltration :)
>>1989918>>1989928Like i said, I posted some generalized ones and some that overlapped to get a feel for what people were looking to play
>>1989918Honestly ambushed/gurella warfare sounds better at stealth in the wilderness
>Infiltration>Small, fast and agileKnowing that you're form is small and agile, you recall some of your old missions involved infiltration. You were apt at getting into places that maybe you weren't meant to. Some Infiltrators are skilled at sneaking around to obtain intel without being detected, others use it as an opportunity to get up close and personal with a target for a silent take down. But one thing is certain, their enemies dont know they were ever there until its too late.That said, what do you feel your specialized secondary function was:>Sharpshooter-Getting to the prime position to get that shot and sneak out>Ambusher - You lie in wait for an enemy to get in range and when they drop their guard you strike>Spy/Double Agent - You know how to play bots; your silver tongue can get them to do anything you want>Technician - No computer is safe from your hacking and programming abilities.>Saboteur/Demolition - Sneak in, set the bomb, walk away.
>>1989980>Spy/Double Agent - You know how to play bots; your silver tongue can get them to do anything you wanthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C5NLfYdZaE
>>1989980>Sharpshooter-Getting to the prime position to get that shot and sneak outsnipe snipe i like that we have 2 classes, with infiltration we can sneak into places and with sharpshooter we can snipe bitches
>>1989980>>Sharpshooter-Getting to the prime position to get that shot and sneak out
>>1989980>Sharpshooter-Getting to the prime position to get that shot and sneak out. Owl assassin
>Sharpshooter-Getting to the prime position to get that shot and sneak outYou are a crack shot with any firearm, but you prefer the being where your target cant see you. Taking advantage of the shadows to conceal your presence, you mission is done before anyone is the wiser.You body requires a last assessment. Thinking back you try to recall:>Female programming>Male programming
>>1990059>Female programmingMore femme fatale's a needed.
>>1990059>>Female programmingThe last quest collapsed because we tried to Waifu the spider, let's nix that idea this time.
>>1990059>>Female programmingMaybe we can stave off the waifuing this time. Hope's not dead yet.
>>1990059>Male programmingno fucking way i dont wanna be a chick.
:( god fucking damnit.
>>1990059>Transgender programmingFor the "surprise! I have a dick!" moment
i'd rather be have no gender so>indeterminable gender!

>>1990140Don't be afraid of your feelings.
>>1990138As much as i love tim curry....i'm gonna have to say negative ghostwriter
>>1990150Awww, ok.......can we be the Pennywise of Beast Wars instead?
>>1990138I was about to facepalm, but I can't knock Rocky Horror.You do you, anon.
fuck being a chick, dude.
>Female programmingYes, its all being to come back to youALERT: ENTERING ATMOSHPERE. BEGIN LANDING SEQUENCEThat’s right! Lost in your thoughts, you almost spaced on that fact that you’re headed for an unknown planet. >Scan for Cybertronian signatures (will land closer to one of the two bases – influence to starting faction)>Activate distress beacon (Maximal and Predacon scanners will detect your landing and will actively try to reach your pod. Chance for potential reprogramming by Predacons and high chance for combat after activation, regardless of which side.)>Just focus on landing (list of remote landing zones will be given and voting on)>Write in suggestions
>>1990239>Scan for Cybertronian signatures (will land closer to one of the two bases – influence to starting faction)
>>1990239>Just focus on landing (list of remote landing zones will be given and voting on)Wider choice of animal forms I think. Plus time to ready an ambush for unfriendlies.We can make sure they all float down here, Georgie.
>>1990239>>Just focus on landing (list of remote landing zones will be given and voting on)
>>1990239>>Scan for Cybertronian signatures (will land closer to one of the two bases – influence to starting faction)
Just gonna put it out there for a beast form candidate:Assassin BugA little on the nose, but these things are pretty metal.
>>1990303I'd prefer a Velvet Ant because they're cute and fuzzy.Plus look at that thorax, rrrrowr.
>>1990303>>1990313where are they located? Biome wise
>>1990332Velvet Ants are apparently located in the Southwest of America. North America.
>>1990303I still prefer to owl
>>1990313But do they wear the corpses of their prey as camouflage?>>1990332Mostly wooded, grassy areas as well as rainforests. Pretty much most of the Americas are home to one kind of Assassin Bug or another.
>>1990303>>1990313Owls give flight plus decent camouflage Chameleons give good camouflage what do those give? Plus do you really wanna join a club that includes Waspinator?
Oh cool I caught the reboot.So whats the plan this time around?
>>1990368All I'm saying is its something to think about. It would be a pretty neat design.
>>1990384You just want an excuse to rub up against Waspinator don't you.
>>1990368Well, if Waspinator catches us and scrambles our circuits, we may not have a choice on joining his club.Would still prefer Chameleon, though.
>>1990387Inclined towards some kind of snake, personally.
>>1990385Who wouldn't, have you seen his thorax?
>>1990385Nah. I'm not much of a fan of the crazy bee.Honestly my favorite vespid designed transformer came from the Beast Machines toy line>>1990404A spitting cobra would be cool
I like the owl Idea. Silent Flight, night vision, twist our head right around, fun for a sniper
>>1990423Pretty damn effective too once you think about it.360 vision for a sniper is a godsend.
>>1990423...And it would give us opportunity to recycle the female Transformer name 'Nightbird'
>Scan for Cybertronian signatures (will land closer to one of the two bases – influence to starting faction)While you are still in stasis you have enough congnisent thought to have the stasis pods scanners to seek out Cybertronian signatures. If you can find them, they should be able to get you on line.SCANNING....TWO LARGE SIGNATURES DETECTED. SMALL ISOLATED SIGNATURES DETECTEDHmm well which way should you head>The Large signature to the east (Terrain type - Mountain/Rocky, Coastal, Jungle, Forest)>The Large signature to the west (Terrain type- Mountain/Rocky, Desert, Grasslands, Swamp)>Small energy signature in the north (Terrain type - Artic, Forest) >Small energy siganture in the south (Terrain type - Swamp, Coastal)>Hmm on second thought, head for an isolated spot
Too bad we can't pull a Silverbolt and fuck up so bad we're a fusion of creatures.
>>1990459you havent landed safely yet *whistles nonchalantly*
>>1990458>>Small energy signature in the north (Terrain type - Artic, Forest)
>>1990458>Small energy signature in the north (Terrain type - Artic, Forest) Hoot hoot motherfuckers
>>1990458>Hmm on second thought, head for an isolated spot
>>1990458>>Small energy signature in the north (Terrain type - Artic, Forest)>>1990502Hoot hoot indeed
>>1990458>Small energy signature in the north (Terrain type - Artic, Forest) Let's see what happens.
>>1990458>>Small energy siganture in the south (Terrain type - Swamp, Coastal)
>>1990458>>Small energy signature in the north (Terrain type - Artic, Forest)Hoot Hoot indeed
>>1990458Really if we do go owl, I would have hoped it'd be something as cool looking as the Barn Owl. Though, we'd all have to change our votes for something bordering an Arid biome like the desert.
>>1990538Well, there hadn't been live Dinosaurs or pterodactyls for millions of years yet Beast Wars still had three of them, a Barn Owl straying a little too northerly is still far more feasible.
>>1990564Fair enough. Though snowy owls are cool too. I just think the Barn Owl's face is far more mysterious and intimidating.
>>1990576Oh, I agree. Plus, Barn Owls are probably the quietest owl in flight, something that would be so useful with the type of 'bot we are; allowing us to swoop in and take a sniper's perch before anyone can see us.
Rolled 38, 23 = 61 (2d100)Ok i'm gonna need to see if you guys enter the atmosphere safelyif roll failed, we'll be rolling for a random trajectory (arctic and forest still options)

>Small energy signature in the north (Terrain type - Arctic, Forest)ALERT NO SCANNING SIGNALS DETECTED. It appears who ever is down on this planet isn't actively looking for you. Odd, wouldnt someone be awaiting for your planet fall? Its not exactly common practice to leave stasis pods floating around in space. Your thoughts are disrupted by a sudden thud. Your pod rocks a bit as its hit by stray space debri. You feel the pod's downward flight become a bit more erratic."Computer damage report?"NO SYSTEMS DAMAGED. LANDING VECTOR SLIGHTLY ALTEREDSlightly altered? Slag. Are you still going to be landing near your landing position? From what you can gather it'll be most likely in that region but there's an off chance the pod might land elsewhere.ALERT! APPROACHING FINAL DECSEND.

I noticed your posts Primus.
>No (Your landing will go unnoticed, unless seen in the sky during your planet fall)>ForestYour specialization is inflitration and stealth, so you find more...comfortable to come in quietly. CALCULATING SAFE LANDING ZONE....The pod begins to slow down its descend. It's used up most of the pods thrusters to ease the ship into a safe trajectory toward the forest. Approaching close towards the snowy mountains. The sound of tree branches cracking, rocks the pod slightly as it reaches the ground.PLANET FALL SUCCESSFULAbout time.

I would add more but i'm pretty sure i know what the consensus is
>>1991257>>Snow OwlAlso, Moonracer as a name suggestion?
>>1991257>>Great Horned OwlOsprey would have been cool, but horned owl too good.
So, are we going to be part of the Maximal waifu wars since we're gonna be a bird chick like Airazor?
>>1991257>Snow Owl looks too cool to pass
>>1991294Or we could avoid the whole waifu thing
Gonna take a short break for dinner. back in a bit
so in the meantimehow's everyone doing? Enjoying the reboot so far

>Snow OwlYou determine with your current surroundings this avain would provide you with the best option and its natural biology makes it a silent hunter. Perfect for you.BEGINNING REPLICATIONThe pod's computers assemble your parts, the rush of energon coursing into your superstructor is revitalizing. Despite your size, being in such a cramped coffin isnt your ideal of a good time. START UP PROGRAM COMPLETE. OPENNING POD DOOR. The stasis pod door opens with a whoosh and you stand on your legs. You shake your pearl white feathers as you sit up in your bird form. You like this form as it has everything you could do what you want: stealth, natural cameo (though your built in Tactical Cloak helps as well), and your beast is a predator judging from your talons.As you look around you, you dont notice anyone immediately amongst the snow and trees. You flap your wings for the first time, reading to take flight. But before you do, what should you call yourself now? >Nightbird>Moonracer>Slipstream>Nightracer>Freezon>Coldstar>Snowstorm>Write in
For speeding things along I'll change my vote to Whitewing.

>NightracerYou are Nightracer and now it is time for you to take flight. You have to admit, it takes some getting used to. As you take to the sky you circle around looking around. This planet has some natural beauty. Its bizarre not to be on a planet without many towering structures. Not nearly enough sturdy structures to scout and snipe from.As your continue to fly around you start hearing a strange noise approaching from the distance. >Dive into the trees.

>Fly towards the soundThe sound seems mechanical. The first mechanical thing you've heard since being here. You move closer towards the sound, partialy gliding on your silent wings. Looking through the tree line you find the source. Its a large red robot with a propultion device on his back using it to fly. In his hands he holds a massive handgun. Looks messy. He hasnt quite seen you yet but it looks like he's clearly searching for something.You fly wide around him and notice he's starting to flicker as it looks like energon is building up on him. He grunts a few times as he lowers himself towards the ground. As he does so, he transforms into a massive red six legged creature. It continues to work its way the direction your stasis pod had landed. >Fly down and introduce yourself>Land on tree and demand the bot identifiy themselves>Follow the ant, was he looking for your pod?

>Follow the ant, was he looking for your pod? Maybe he knows somethingYou watch as this ant scurries along the forest floor with drive and determination. He keeps muttering to himself. Something about 'the royalty'. Huh, seems strange as you've never heard of such an individual before; might be worth looking into. Or just asking. You have this creature...no this robot dead to rights at the moment. Even if its behavior is peculiar, it may have answers on your situation.You keep following it while flying just out of range of what you believe to be his peripherals. He must be either blind or just committed to his purpose. Your pod. Its almost flattering if only you knew his intent. It doesn't take much longer until you both approach the landing zone. The ant seems to look around his surroundings. "Praise the royalty, I've found it." It moves rapidly towards the pod. His expression and stance adjust when he notices its open and empty. "Wha?! Where is it? The royalty demands that I retrieve the stasis pod and the protoform inside."What do you do?>Approach and introduce yourself, who are you to refuse an invitation from 'the royalty'>Find a vantage point first and transform>Turn around and fly back the way you were heading.>Find a place to camouflage yourself and then demand he identify himself>Write in

>Find a place to camoflauge yourself and then demand he identify himselfYou try to keep yourself high up in the tree's snow fall. To prevent from the ant's visual sensors from detecting you. Fortunately for you, his attention is set on the pod and sniffing around it to find your tracks. If only he knew.Once you're convinced he hasnt seen you, you call out from your location trying to change your voice slightly. "Unknown entity. Weapons down and exhaust plate up. You've got lest than a cycle to tell me who you are and what you want."The ant starts looking around, its mandibles searching around."You have 5 seconds to comply...4...3...""Who dares challenge the will of the colony? " He swings his head around and around. "Are you the protoform that emerged from this pod? The royalty demands you brought to him at once."You notice him continuing to search around.

>"You have 2 seconds to comply">Transform and draw your weapon"You have two seconds to comply. Identify yourself!" you get louder this time and transform into your robot mode, drawing your sniper rifle putting him in your sights.Your transformation wasn't exactly silent but while you think the ant is getting a better idea of where you at the more you talk with him, he hasnt figured out where you are. Or atleast he hasn't made it apparent."I am Inferno, soldier of the royalty and protector of the colony!" While its still on six legs it almost seems like its standing up proudly while he says this."Alright...So who's the Royalty and what do they want with me?""The royalty is our Queen!" He seems to clear his throat, "Um but the royalty has ordered me not to refer to them as that. The royalty has ordered that you be brought to him at once! Before the filthy Maximals get to you."You cock an eyebrow at this...bizarre creature. "And what if i don't want to go with you? You seriously can't expect a girl to just go with some strange bot now do you?"His mandibles furrow and his pincers twitch. "The royalty demands it! If you refuse or pose a threat to the royalty, you will buuuuurn."Well, that almost sounds like a threat. You dont think he knows where you're at but you get that he will once you take a shot. He looks like a touch customer as well. On the other hand, he look like he was suffering from built up energon so he might not be able to last very long in a straight fire fight. If he can, you'll need to high tail it out of here.>Something tells me this 'royalty' will make more sense that you possibly could. Take me to them.>Yeah....I'll pass. >Right, look you do whatever you're going to do. I'll go see this royalty on my own time. Where can i find them?>Well that sounds unpleasant. Fine, lead the way.>Do all your kind act like you?>Write in.

Rolled 1 (1d2)>>1992785alright lets leave it to chance>Do all your kind act like you?1>Yeah....I'll pass. 2
>Do all your kind act like you?"Do all your kind act like you?" If the rest of this creature's 'colony' is like him you're not interested. He hasn't exactly presented himself well. While he claims to be a guardian of his people, clearly he is no diplomat."I am the one of the highest of the royalties troops, a commander of the drones. I am the royalties most devout soldier.""So...that's a no?"The ant's head tilts like if he's trying to understand what your asking. "Some of the others do things their way, but ultimately the royalty commands and is obeyed."Trying to figure this creature out is getting to be a nuisance. While you have no doubt he's a loyal if not fanatical soldier, this ant is clearly a few sandwiches short of a picnic. But by the sounds of it, no all of the troops are like him...you think?"My orders are clear: burn any Maximals that get in my way and bring you back to the colony?">What can you tell me of the Maximals? Why do you want to burn them?>Fine fine whatever, just take me to someone who makes more sense>Look I'll stay here and you can bring this 'royalty' to me>Where can I find this royalty?>Yea, this is getting us no where, I'm gonna go that way now.>Write up

Might as well cut and run."Yea, this is getting us no where, so i'm gonna go that way now." You start to fall back from your position while maintaining eyes on the ant.The fire ant gives off a scream, "I will drag you to the royalty if i must.

>Fire a head shot (1d100+5)You take aim at the robot as he transforms and you pull your trigger. You manage to score a hit on his head, causing it to spin around a few times. He's knocked off balance as he screams loudly. This guy certainly screams alot. It wasn't a critical hit but its done a bit of damage, you have to admit though he doenst seem to be showing it that much. In fact, he's drawing out two large cannons. "You dare attack? You will buuuurrn! Hiiiii-yaaaaaa!"The guns he's carrying look nasty. If he figures out where you're at he could do some damage with those two.

>Get on your comlink and send an open broadcast to anyone sane nearby. Hopefully the energon doesn't interfere too much"This is Nightracer on an open frequency. Calling anyone, I'm under fire by some nut with heavy hand cannons....Ugh"Your broadcast was interrupted by a sudden shot to your cover, sending you flying back. Looks the the bug found you. Lucky hit seeing as he fired two shots one that was in the opposite direction hitting a snow embankment. "Is there anyone out there?" You shake the snow off your form."Zzzzz....who is this...zzzz...repeat...?" a slightly nasel if not squeeky voice speaks out. "Th-is....zzzzzzz....tron.....identi...zzzzz" a deep voice responses.Slag, the energon is interfering. "This is Nightracer, I recently landed on this unknown planet. I'm being engaged by a fire ant with massive guns. Any friendly unit, converge on my position."Well there are appears to be people now more aware of your presence here.

>Tactical Cloak and try to sneak off"Well that was rude. I was trying to make a call here. Make like a bug and buzz off."You put your sniper rifle away and begin activating your Tactical Cloak. "Or better yet, stay here and I'll go."The ant takes aim at you while you active your cloak but notices the distortion of movement. "Come back here drone! You can't hid from me for...ugh....ever...ugh."You notice his body beginning to twitch as he takes in more energon. You figured he didnt have much time to stay in robot mode not that he seemed to care the last time. This helps your get away. Still the bug seems persistance. Nothing like a guy who cant take a hint. You start to move through the trees. You're steps dont make to much sound as the snow is sporatic in areas. Still your smaller frame does you credit, preventing you leaving too large of foot prints. Still being in the air would probably be the best way to dodge this freak.Though you have to wonder how long you can last in your robot form. You can use the cloak in beast mode but you'll have to worry about the inablity to use your main weapon for a while.>Keep moving on foot for now.

>Maintain your cloak and keep drifting into the woodsYou keep moving through the woods by foot. There's a certain familiarity to this, like walking through a crowd or maneuvering through tight quarters and cooridors. You occasionally look behind you to see if the ant is able to keep up pursuit. So far, no sight of him.You keep darting ahead. There's less and less snow around these parts but fortunately still lots of trees. Without your cloak though, you'd stick out pretty easy with your white and black plumage.While reflecting on this, you take a step backwards behind a larger tree as you hear the sounds of energy weapons being fired. Looks like the folks that heard your message were heading for your location and ran into trouble or each other and apparently dont care for each other. You only have a little while longer with your cloak before you need to shut it down due to energon fatuigue and with you being in robot mode, you're pushing your limit. Soon you'll start twitching like the other guy was.What should you do?>Approach cautiously, but try to remain hidden without your cloak>Return to beast mode and take to the sky>Switch to beast mode and approach the battlefield from above >Rush towards the battlefield with your rifle at the ready. >Write in

>Return to beast mode and take to the sky"Beast mode"You switch back to your snowy owl form and shut down your cloak. You feel that your far away enough away from the crazed ant and whatever is going on in the distance that its safe for you to just clear on out. Fortunately for you, you wings dont make much noise as you take off.You start navigating your way through the canopy and reach the top of the trees. As you do so you look around and continue hearing more concentrated fire coming from the southeast. But as you are looking in that direction you hear the sound of buzzing and whip your head towards the west. "Wha-Noooo!"You flap your wings quickly to narrowly avoid a massive green and yellow flying insect nearly crashing towards you. Wait a second...did it talk? And whats the deal with this planet and its massive insects? >Look around to see where the bug came from>Follow the bug downward, maybe if its a robot in disguise it might need your help>Yea, all these bugs...Maybe look for a place thats not as infested>Fly over to the battlefield, take a look>Fly over to the battlefield, but avoid contact>Write in

>Follow the bug downward, maybe if its a robot in disguise it might need your helpYou flap your wings looking over the conflict but you turn back and downward to the fallen bug.Its not difficult to follow the large bug's trail; a path of smashed limbs and shattered tree branches that lead all the way to back to the ground you just flew up from. You approach close to the bug as it pops its head back up. "Bzzzz why everything bad happen to Waspinator?" You can't help but feel almost sorry if the bug didnt look so pathetic. He starts to shake the cobwebs when he turns around to see you flapping above."Rough day?""Huh? Waspinator know bird bot, but you dont look like bird bot...but bot is bird..but..."He seems to be going in a circle of confused logic. You almost miss the ant. Almost. Atleast this dim bulb hasn't tried shooting you yet.>Help the poor idiot up, get him talking; you might learn more about who he is and where you are>Leave him here.

>Help the poor idiot up, get him talking; you might learn more about who he is and where you are"Are all the bots on this rock crazy or it just the bug ones?"You fly down, maintaining some height as you use your talons to lift up the bug of the ground until he gets his wings start buzzing again. He turns to face you."Wha...Bird bot help Waspinator?""Oh no, I'm just a normal talking bird. Not some sort of Bird Bot, that's silly." Might as well have some fun at this guy's expense for your trouble. Though now he seems more confused just starting blankly at you. "Ok focus, Waspinator is it? Look I'm new around these parts so why don't you tell me what the pit is going on around here?"He seems to collect himself, "Waspinator was out on patrol when Megatron order Waspinator and others to recover stasis pod. Ant bot says he find pod in stupid Maximal territory, but no Maximals. So Megatron send Waspinator and Lizard bot to assist while rest of Predacons distract Maximals. But Lizard-bot and Waspinator get detour by stupid Maximals. Waspinator get shot, start spinning and spinning and spinning...""Ok yea, yea i get it.""Thats when Waspinator almost crash into Bird bot thats not bird bot. And Bird bot that's not bird bot help Waspniator. Waspinator like new bird bot""Swell." you said dryly.>"So then you were sent by this Megatron to recover me then?">"Does this "Megatron" happen to go by 'the royalty?">"Look this has been fun, really, but I think I'm gonna bail now, K?

>>2000863>>"Does this "Megatron" happen to go by 'the royalty?
>>2000863>"So then does Waspniator want to show Bird bot how to get out of here? Some creep with a flamethrower is chasing me."I think this is as charming as Waspinator can get. Its oddly endearing.
>>2000863>>"Does this "Megatron" happen to go by 'the royalty?"
>>2000863>"So then does Waspniator want to show Bird bot how to get out of here? Some creep with a flamethrower is chasing me."
>"Does this "Megatron" happen to go by 'the royalty?""Does this 'Megatron happen to go by 'the royalty' by any chance?"Waspinator laughs, "Just dumb ant bot calls Megatron that." He flies a bit closer which is a bit bothersome. "But its funnier when ant bot calls Megatron 'my queen'." He does an over dramatic bow with his thin black legs and laughs. "Huh. So then the ant is one of you guys? Not exactly the friendly type."Waspnitor nods, "Yes, Sub commander kiss butt has major screw loose."Heh. And here he kept calling himself Inferno. Gonna have to remember that."So what now? You going back to the fire fight."Waspinator looks back in the direction where sporadic laser fire. He seems....reluctant. "Well, maybe Waspinator go if Bird bot go too? Help blast Maximals together?" He again buzzes a bit too close for your comfort. "Though Megatron said bring back new bot to base. We go back there together. Less likelihood of Waspinator getting blown to scrap." The wasp nods enthusiastically to that idea. So where do you want to go? A fire fight might be interesting, but diving in head long in to the fray isnt really an infiltrator's style. You prefer discretion. While you have made a few internal repairs since switching to beast mode, you did take a bit of damage with your last encounter. >Lets go play with these 'Maximals' (head for the battle)>Sure lets hit up your base, you could use a little 'civilized' comforts (head to the Predacon base)>Actually I feel like exploring more of this world.

Hmm not good. two failsbut this suggestion >>2001145 could help you out
>>2001160I'm ok with that
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>2001160I'm good with that.Here use this roll.
>>2001160Works for me, just so long as we stay away from Mister "I made a mind probe drill for shit's and giggles."
>>2001160Waspinator is now the lost puppy we can't get rid of.
>>2001180Why would you want to get rid of Waspinator?
>>2001180Waspinator swaps over to the maximals, ends up happy and with actual friends. Best End.
>Actually I feel like exploring more of this world. (leave Waspinator)"Actually I feel like exploring more of this world. See you around." You start flapping your wings to take off into the air. You start getting about the tree line again when you start hearing the buzzing of the bug."Waspinator suppose to find new bot. Bring back to Megatron.""Well I'm not heading that way. Feel free to tag along if you wish." You start flapping your wings to circle the air. You look back to see if the bug is following you. He seems to be looking between you and the battle area. "Wa-wait for Waspinator."Which way do you wish to go?>Head north, more towards the arctic areas>Head west, towards the deep woods >Head south, near the battle but not too close (Roll to avoid being notice)>Head east, chance to encounter the ant again>write in (will clarify certain directions if necessary)
>>2001285>Head west, towards the deep woods
>>2001285>Head west, towards the deep woods I'm not sure what we're trying to accomplish by avoiding the plot.
>>2001285>>Head north, more towards the arctic areas
>>2001285>>Head west, towards the deep woods>>2001303Hanging out with Waspinator and hopefully encountering other transformers in a non-firefight situation.
>>2001285>Head south, near the battle, but not too close
>>2001303random encounters maybe
>>2001303But if we go to the battle with waspinator it could end badly for him
Rolled 23 (1d100)this is just an illusion roll, nothing to see here
>>2001441My god, that 99 looks like a 23, amazing!
>>2001461you are wrong 23=Michael Jordan=100/100=Crit
>>2001467That makes sense.
>Head west, towards the deep woodsYou start flying to the west, with the bug flying behind. While you're content to gaze upon the natural beauty of the planet, it kind of makes you long for the cold steel of Cyberton. It wasn't the nicest place in the galaxy, but it kept you entertained and working. Always a need for someone to get in and out of places they werent supposed to be. Too bad you can't remember much else.The buzzing of your 'compatriots' is occasionally grating on the nerves. Between that and the mumbling to himself it's kind of distracting. "Do you mind not following so closely?"The green and yellow bug speeds up, pulling up next to you."Hmmm...Waspinator has orders. Megatron told Waspinator to find and bring back new protoform. Waspinator doing just EEEEIGGGG----"As the bug was talking you hear the faint sound of a roar, followed by the sounds of an energy canon firing off. You thought you left the fighting behind you. As Waspinator was explaining himself you watch as the bug shot in a small explosion and is sent spinning out of control. Again. Must be a thing.You see to more round energy blast fired in your direction from the ground causing you to dodge. Looking down, you scan for the source of the fire; your eyes training on a white and green robot.>Dive and attack your attacker in beast mode>Dive and try to lose your attacker in the tree line.>Swoop downward and activate your tactical cloak>Transform and draw your weapon>Dive to the tree line, transform and find a vantage point>write in
>>2001535>>Dive and try to lose your attacker in the tree line.
>>2001535FUCK! >Save Waspinator>"Why is everyone on this planet trying to attack me?!"
>>2001542>>2001535Why is everyone shooting me, is it a culling season or something
>>2001535>Dive to the tree line, transform and find a vantage pointAsk for the attacker to identify itself
Rolled 24, 79 = 103 (2d100)Make a roll to see if you manage to save Waspinator while dodging additional fireMost of these shots are aimed at him1d100+-10
I can't believe I'm the only one who wants to save Waspinator.

>Dive to the tree lineYou decide to dive down into the tree line. Seriously why the hell is everyone trying to shoot you?! As you start moving downward you notice the person below fires two more shots in your direction.You easily manage to dodge the first shot but the second one manages to graze you a bit. You dont take a lot of damage but you're not going to be able to attack, cloak or do much of anything other than land on the ground. You manage to skid to a landing behind some trees not too far away from the shooter. "So....thats what the Predacons were doing in our territory." He points the gun over in your direction. "You, come out slowly. Identifiy yourself.""Me? You're the nut job shooting at me. You identify yourself."He seems taken aback for a moment. Is he surprised that you're female or surprised that you're not playing his game. Either way, you may need to defend yourself here."My name is Tigatron. Now I'm not going to ask again." You hear the sound of his cannon fully charging. "Step out and identify yourself."Before you can react..."Waspinator, Terrorize!" Well the bug's more durable than you expected. Not that he looks to be in good shape. Waspinator draws a yellow dart missile launcher and opens fire on the other bot. "Bzzz...Waspinator hate old cat bot. Waspinator slag!"This might be your openning. Tigatron takes aim at Waspinator.How will you react?>Transform and draw your weapon and fire on Tigatron>Transform and use your tactical cloak to sneak off>Transform and use the Tactical cloak to get a new vantage point>Remain in beast mode and try to fly way while they're distracted>Write in
>>2001661Well, if we transform, the jig is up with Waspinator, he'll know that we're the one Megatron is looking for.
>>2001663>>Transform and use the Tactical cloak to get a new vantage point
>>2001661> Hey, chill, both you guys. There's no need to fight here.(Transform)>Now, what are you both doing here blowing each other up in violation the pax cybertronia, and why are you starting a war over me?

> Hey, chill, both you guys. There's no need to fight here.>Now, what are you both doing here blowing each other up in violation the pax cybertronia, and why are you starting a war over me?The two male bots continue to trade shots back and forth, neither gaining a clear edge. You decide talking would be the best course of action. Sometimes it works just as well as a clean shot between the eyes. "Hey chill out guys. There's no need to fight here."You walk out for behind your cover in a bit of a gutsy move and transform. Both bots cease firing as you lean against your tree."Now, what are you both doing here blowing up each other up in violation of the pax cybertronia, and why are you starting a war over me?"Waspniator scratches his head in a bit of confusion, giving Tigatron a moment to speak. "I don't know who you are or who exactly you think you are but this war really isnt about you. Its been going on for sometime now.""Well no need to be rude about it." you ruffle your feathers dramatically. Tigatron continues. "On this world the pax was broken when the Predacons stole a golden disc from the great archives on Cyberton.""Bzzz.... Other cat bot fired on Waspinator and Megatron declared the war to start again. Megatron will gather energon to rule Cybertron.""Starting this war was there intent from the beginning." Tigatron growls. "We are on this planet to stop them and keep the peace of the natural order."Waspinator shakes slightly. "Tiger bot, not tell the full truth. Other cat bot started war when he fired on Waspinator! And at Megatron while Optimus Primal were talking. Stupid Maximals started the war." "Still doesnt explain everyone shooting at me and why some crazed ant was lurking around my pod. "Royalty this, Royalty that..." Ugh." you shiver with a bit of a hoot as you try to erase the obnoxious ant from your thoughts. You don't need to listen to that guy again anytime soon.Tigatron lowers his weapon a bit as he focuses on you. "Thats because you were on board the Maximal ship, the Axalon. Like myself you were put into a floating orbit to protect you from the crash. The Predacons seek to capture and reprogram any Maximal protoforms they can get their hands on.""Bird bot awakened from pod. But ant bot found first. Bird bot joining us.""Whoa the ant found me but he wasn't making a whole lot of sense. I haven't joined anyone just yet." "Then what were you doing flying around with this Predacon.""I gave him a hand, he was shot down and he's been following me ever since.""Waspinator taking new protoform to Megatron. Stupid Maximals didn't know it was here." He turns to face you. "Maximals didn't care about your safe landing. Megatron sent forces to recover bird bot, while tiger bot fires on bird bot. Tiger bot enemy!"Tigatron starts to snarl which in turn causes Waspinator to flinch but to regain his composure.(cont.)
Looks like your in a tight spot. You hate spots like this; so much easier when you can avoid these kind of scenarios. Its why you do what you do. But now things are getting heated and the violence is most likely about to begin.....and a decision will have to be made soon.Thats all for tonight. Hope to catch you guys tomorrow. I'll try to aim for a bit earlier post but only about an hour earlier than the last day or so.
>>2001748>"If you want to bring up who's shooting at who, that stupid red bug shot at me too. I'm tired of everyone shooting at me, the only one who hasn't is this guy and apparently if he doesn't bring me back, he'll get shot!">Moment of silence, then turn to Waspinator.>"...Why do you work for them again?"
>>2002433Numbering in agreement.
Alright lads, here's rough headshot of what I was thinking for Nightracer. If you have some suggestions on what you think she looks like, let me know please!
>>2002942sorry about the massive size, my normal computer is a doorstop, and my laptop has no art programs installed on it.
>>2002942Needs more bullying of Rattrap.
>>2002957Other than that, though. What do you think about the facial features? We haven't really decided on what we look like much, so I'm just throwing art at the wall to see what sticks.
>>2002433Whatever number this is-ingDude seriously needs to reconsider his employment options.
>>2002942I was thinking something with Goggles like this and then a head thing where it's got a fluff of feathers in the front that taper off into the owl horn shape.Kinda like those russian hats, but in the shape of an owl's head.
>>2002942Actually, amending >>2003273 The art in >>2001750 but without the beak is pretty close to what I had in mind. Something obviously a night vision/sniper mask and hat.
>>2003273The thing in our forehead could work as googles, kinda like Catwoman in Batman the Dark Knight Rises
We’ll be starting soon
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>2003794Rolling for excitement
>>2003794Time to get ourselves a lackey.And it's a step up from his previous work environment.
First off>>2002942Nice work>>2003273I like some of these suggestionsHmm idea of almost russian snow owl would be kinda hot, though don't expect me to start using 'da' and 'newcler wessel' in her speech. too much work and tricky enough as it is>>2002433i'm not opposed to this write in, but i wanted to mention that Waspinator isn't risking getting shot for not bringing Nightracer. He was saying he didnt want to go back to the battle going on cause thats how he crashed where you were atThat said did you guys still want to support it, but with a bit of a rewrite?
>>2003864Eh, it can still work with Waspinator being confused and correcting us. With all the stuff going on, Hootits could have misunderstood just as easily as I did.
>>2003864>>2003879Waspinator is going to crush so hard on Nightracer. We're showing genuine concern for his well-being.
>>2003864You could take off the part about him getting shot, or reword it to us saying that he probably will get shot for not doing it considering how goddamn gun happy everyone seems to be around here.
>>2003886 who says he hasn't already; if you guys do end up bullying rattrap regardless of which side you are, expect waspniator to get a bit jealous
>>2003864Yes, that's cool.
Well since it seems everyone is in favor of the write in, i wont bother with a vote, and start writing
"If you want to bring up who's shooting at who, that stupid red bug shot at me too. I'm tired of everyone shooting at me, the only one who hasn't is this guy!"Waspinator nods, "Yes, Waspinator not shoot Bird bot." He turns back to the one called Tigatron with a narrowing gaze. "Unlike Tiger Bot.""Inferno's out here?" you hear him snarl after words. Doesn't sound like he's a fan. "You'll have to forgive my precaution. I saw you with Waspinator and thought you were a Predacon. I'm still not quite sure I'm convinced you're not one, though if you are not, you shouldn't rush to join this one.""Megatron want bird bot to come with Waspinator. Waspinator think Bird bot should come with Waspinator."Tigatron looks back and forth between you two. He doesn't seem to think much of your companion. "You aren't honestly considering going with...him of all people are you?">"And what if I am? Like i said, he's the only one not trying to blow me to scrap!">"HE's following ME, thank you very much. As to where I'm going...well...">"I dont mind having him around, unless it means more people shooting at me.">"I was actually trying to ditch him. Do you mind?" *gesture for Tigatron to shoot him>Write in
>>2003988>>"I dont mind having him around, unless it means more people shooting at me."
>>2003988>>"I dont mind having him around, unless it means more people shooting at me."Pat Waspinator on the head.
>>2003988>"I dont mind having him around, unless it means more people shooting at me.">>2004018Waspinator deserves headpats.
>>2003988>>"I dont mind having him around, unless it means more people shooting at me."Once more remind him that of all the bots we've met today, this one is the only one who hasn't tried to turn us to scrap.
>>2004018Yes, pat Waspinator on the head, bzzzz.
>"I dont mind having him around, unless it means more people shooting at me."You honestly dont mind Waspinator. Sure he's not exactly the most stimulating conversationalist, but he's the first to not go straight for his blaster upon meeting you."Not that I want anyone shooting him, particularly when he's flying close to me." You fly up towards Waspinator and pat his head a few times. His little antenni bounce with a springing 'boing' as he coos a bit."Waspinator really like Bird bot. Not let Tiger bot take you away." He holds up his gun. You expect he's trying to look dashing or something, but you think he might be taking this as you joining up with him.Tigatron still seems flabergasted. "Look, I can't say for whatever reason you've seemed to side with this Predacon, but you're a Maximal. You belong with your own kind.""Bzzzz....Waspinator sick of Tigerbot trying to lie to Bird bot. Waspinator destroy Tigerbot."Waspinator flies infront of you in an odd manner of trying to protect you. What are you going to do?>Tactical Cloak, let them fight it out while you 'bug out' as it were>Grab the bug and try to fly the two of you out of here>Draw your rifle, if the tiger shoots, he might hit you...again. But you're ready for it this time>Try to defuse the situation, but it might leave you in the cross fire. do you really want to get shot again?>Write in
>>2004194>>Try to defuse the situation, but it might leave you in the cross fire. do you really want to get shot again?Didn't I just say I was tired of things getting shot in my general direction? Let's sit down and talk this out at least, since you're both so desperate to recruit me. Even if we join the Maximals, I want us to still hang out with Waspinator. Just like, we end up in a battle, take pot shots at each other, then crash into the forest and talk about how Inferno is a brownnoser.
>>2004194>>Tactical Cloak, let them fight it out while you 'bug out' as it were>"I believe in you buddy." >You don't really believe in him, but it probably makes Waspinator feel better.
>>2004194>Grab the bug and try to fly the two of you out of hereTime to leave, buzzy bot!

>>2004194>>Try to defuse the situation, but it might leave you in the cross fire. do you really want to get shot again?What part of 'everyone stop shooting at each other' do you guys not seem to grasp?
>>2004194Ask Tigerbot how does he know we are a Maximal?
>>2004194>Write inWaspinator please be honest with me here...we're you going to reprogram me? [appear a lil hurt by the fact] Please don't lie to me>Try to defuse the situation, but it might leave you in the cross fire. do you really want to get shot again?

>>2004302best 3 of 5 so it should
I'll be honest guys, I think we should just join the Predacons and then use our cute tomboy charm to turn everyone good.But we act like a bitch to Blackarachnia since she's a whore.
>>2004328The only one we'd have a chance of doing so is MAYBE Waspinator.Megatron will never go good.Tarantulas will never go good.Inferno will never go against Megatron.Blackarachnia is in the same boat as Tarantulas.
>>2004345Blackarachnia will have to wait for SilverboltWaspinator is ours now.
>>2004328The Predacons are shit though, Waspinator and Blackarachnia are the only decent ones and Blackarachnia only turned out like that because a maximal got her moist.Honestly, I'm leaning Maximal just to avoid the political manuvering and backstabbing.
>>2004345What about Cowboy Spider Scorp?
>>2004356We're going to need to get him chipped, and by primus I'm not looking forward to all the vet bills.>>2004362He's basically a Khornate warrior, just tone it down a bit, reduce the urge to take skulls, and give him a southern accent.he's not going 'good' for the simple reason that good guys don't fuck shit up enough or long enough to keep his short attention span entertained.
>Try to defuse the situation, but it might leave you in the cross fire. do you really want to get shot again?"Ok time out! Seriously! Didn't I just say I was tired of getting shot at? Lets talk this out."The two freeze up. "Also, who said I was a Maximal? Aside from you, who's first inclination was to shoot at me, I havent met any Maximals.""Well, you see thats..."You turn to Waspinator. "And when it comes to Predacons, the last one attacked me and both of you seem obsessed with taking me to see the roy-Megatron."Waspinator puts his finger by his mouth trying to determine what to say."So how about we all just put away our weapons and we sit down and talk about this?"The two other bots look at each other. There's a great deal of tension in the air."Waspinator, this is Megatron. Report!""Yo, Tigatron the Barbarian; this is Rattrap. You out there, stripes? Whats the hold up?"Oh great, more bots. And this Megatron character i keep hearing about? Well they're not shooting each other at moment and they haven't replied yet. But you can see each of them looking aback at each other back and forth.

You decide enough is enough and you get on your comlink, again switch it up to an open channel. >This is Nightracer and I've had enough of both of your idiots shooting at me, why don't you two report and tell me just what the slag is going on here?!Waspinator and Tigatron seems stunned by this. Give each other a quick look and look back at you. The forest has even gone dead silent. You're quite the sight with your feathers completely puffed up."Well, it sounds like the new Maximal's got a bit of a hot head, don't she?" you hear the one they call Rattrap mention."Waspinator did you secure the protoform?! Answer me!""Um...heeheee..." Waspinator looks a bit confused looking at you. "W-what does bird bot think Waspinator should say?" He keeps looking at his arm like if he wants to respond but unsure of what you want him to say."Rattrap, Tigatron here. I'm with...Nightracer, but she's with Waspinator. They seem..." He gives you both a curious look. "...here at least. Apparently the Predacons found her first.""Aw geez. Did they reprogram her? Is she a Pred then?"Tigatron looks at you. "I honestly don't know..."Well what are you?"I'm bloody pissed off that's what i am! Now someone please explain to me what in the inferno is going on?""You're caught up in our war." Tigatron says somberly. "But you're not one of them. You clearly have a rational side to you, something the Predacons lack. Join us.""Bird bot help Waspinator; nice to Waspinator.

>I'm a Maximal, I guess. I wasn't reprogrammed but I'm with the one bot that hasn't been attacking me"Look, Waspinator," You hate to do this, since he's the one bot that's been pretty chill this whole time. He gets a bit excited with a bounce in his flight as you pat him on the head. "I'm a Maximal, I guess. I may not have the memories of one but if thats who I belong with then...sorry."You notice Tigatron seem to relax a bit. He seems pleased that you have regained your sanity or whatever. The expression is of relief that you're not joining the other side. Waspinator on the other hand...."Whaa....But...Bird bot....Bird bot help Waspinator.""Yea, I mean." Slag you're no good at this. You were trained not to get close to any marks or targets, as an infiltrator you're first priority is the mission. He hangs his head as he seems hurt by your decision. But he starts to shake and looks up with anger."Bzzzz tiger bot turn bird bot against Waspinator. Make Bird bot betray Waspinator." He starts to wave his gun in the air. "Waspinator slag stupid Maximals! Predacons att-EEEIGH!"A small energy explosion erupts where the green guy was flying and you watch as he goes spiraling and crashing further away. You turn to notice Tigatron's blaster barrel smoking."Sorry but i wasn't willing to risk him shooting you or myself." Tigatron explains as he puts away his gun. Seemed a bit uncalled for but maybe he was right."Tigatron to base. Our new Maximal Nightracer and I will be coming in." He turns to look at you. "I trust that's alright with you?">Go with him; time to meet your new comrades >Just give me the coordinates, I can find my way there>Thanks for the help, i've had enough of bugs for a stellar cycle>Ok you heard the part i mentioned about shooting near me right?>Write in
>>2004789>>Write inI hope Waspinator is okay.
>>2004789>Ok you heard the part i mentioned about shooting near me right?
>>2004789>bring waspinator to the predcon base and call tiger a bully.
>>2004789>>Ok you heard the part i mentioned about shooting near me right?
>Ok you heard the part I mentioned about shooting near me right?"Ok you heard the part I mentioned about shooting near me right?" Tigatron transforms back into beast mode. You are considering the same as you are starting to feel the build up of energon yourself. "An unfortunate hazard of war, but a necessary one.""Easy to say when you're the one doing the shooting."He sighs. "I apologize. But we shouldnt stick around here. It is a strange thing that your stasis pod went unnoticed."You shake your ruffled feathers to straighten them out a bit. "The Predacons noticed just fine. Seems like they're more observant than the Maximals.""Stasis pods aren't an everyday occurance. And there have been times the Predacons have sabatoged our efforts in securing the safety of our fellow Maximals.""And they reprogram them?"He nods. "While you may have awoken of your own accord, it wouldnt have surprised me that they would have tried to do something to you.""You seem certain of that. Waspinator didnt seem to share that sentiment.""I don't know what game he was playing but it wouldnt have ended well for you.">I dont believe he meant me any harm>Whatever, you taken me to this base of yours or what>Well it looks like its too late for me to find out, now that you blasted him>Waspinator is...percilur but seemed trust worthy to me. >Write in
>>2004863> Kind of feel sorry for the Wasp. Everyone seems to step on him, from what I overheard.
well it seems everyone's taken off for the night. I'm gonna leave this vote open till tomorrow where we will wrap things up.
>>2004863>Write inHe seems dull, not evil...just really, really slow. The kind of mind evil bots like to take advantage of...lets get going
>>2004863>>Waspinator is...percilur but seemed trust worthy to me.Once again, out of all the bots I met he was the only one willing to actually /talk/ to me rather than shoot me first.Personally so far I like him better than I like you.
We’ll start up in a little over an hour Hope to wrap up today; probably gonna take Wed off (I know that’s the usual update day but I’m getting kinda burnt-been running each night since Friday) so there maybe another thread on Fri or I just might push it back to next week. We’ll see how I’m feeling and if I’ve got some idea of where to direct the story. When we reach the ‘conclusion’ of today’s thread we’ll do a bit of q & a, you guys can ask questions/comments/etc on this new quest and ill have a few of my own to help navigate this quest for the duration of its run. See you guys soon
>>2007199If you need a break that's fine. Five days of questing is alot.
>>2007199What>>2007284 said. You've been burning the GM oil kinda hard lately.That being said I'm liking the reboot, it's working out really well.We even got to give best bot headpats, 10/10 would pat him again.
>>2007199Do what you gotta' do bro, lovin' the quest.
All right So now any more additional votes or just the few we got for next post
>>2007587Looks like just the few we made last night.
>>2007587>>Waspinator is...percilur but seemed trust worthy to me.>He seems dull, not evil...just really, really slow. The kind of mind evil bots like to take advantage of...lets get going.And Let's bring him with us. Maybe we can patch him up and give him the serious defrag his harddrive needs.
>>2007700While I'm tempted to take best bot with us, I don't think the Maximals would go for it.
>>2007700>>2007731Yea, despite those doubles, you'd have to roll for it with major disadvantage.
>>2007735Make it a 70+15 roll. five rolls only then. If it doesn't pan out, it never happened
>>2007748i was thinking 1d100 with a -20well i'll get to writing the update then
>>2007759That's what I was going for. I typed it out like a tard.
>Waspinator is...percilur but seemed trust worthy to me. "He didnt seem to want to threatening to me."Tigatron's skeptisim shows clearly on his face. "Just because he seems harmless doesn' make it so.""So are you taking me somewhere or not?" You stare down at white tiger as you fly in place. You take a quick look over towards where you saw Waspinator crash landed, but dont let your thoughts dwindle on him for too long. Tigatron starts to walk over towards the southeast.You begin to follow him that direction. Roll for possible encounter on the way there.

Rolled 29 (1d100)well i guess i'll do roll 5 for you guys cause why not
The two of you have a quiet, on the way back. You're not wild about this guy. He's not much of a conversationalist and him shooting at you has kind of put a sour on what interactions you've had. The day has been long and you can see the sun starting to fade. Most of your injuries from early are mostly healed up and you no longer have any energon built up. You try to process everything that's happened so far: landing on a strange planet with crazy large bugs and folks who can't seem to stop taking shots in your general direction. Maybe it wasn't so bad in the pod. Who are you kidding? You've never liked those things; too cramped even for your smaller frame."We'll be reaching the Axalon within a megacycle."'Swell." you dryly answer."It wont be so bad. The Maximals can help you regain your memories. The Predacons would have ripped them from your mind the first chance they got.""Seems to me they had plenty of chances. They didn't try anything.""I'd assume it had to do with you awakening before they could reprogram you.""You seem certain of that.""Its what the Preds do to protoforms they get there hands on. You wouldnt be the bot you are now.""So you say.""I say this from..."The tiger suddenly stops; his ears darting around and he sniffs the air. He lets out a low growl.'Wha'You dont see anything immediately but you also notice that forest is eeriey quiet. Hovering a bit higher up to see if you can get a better view of things. Its then that you notice some shrubbery shifting from the direction you were heading.>Swoop down and attack >Transform and take aim with your sniper rifle>Try to hide>Use Tactical Cloak>"Hey Tiger, you gonna shoot at this too?">Write In
>>2008198>>Try to hideSee what it is first.
>>2008198>"Hey Tiger, you gonna shoot at this too?"NEVER LET HIM LIVE THIS DOWN
>>2008198>"Hey Tiger, you gonna shoot at this too?"Bully all the Maximals!
>>2008198>>"Hey Tiger, you gonna shoot at this too?"Bully the Tiger, yes.
>>2008267okay, chacater trait confirmed, we hold afucking grudge
>"Hey Tiger, you gonna shoot at this too?"You shout down to him with a bit of a smug expression. Tigatron looks back up at you with a bit of a expression that can only be described as frustration blended with confusion."Nightracer this isn't the time.""Oh, I just thought thats how Maximals did things.""Grrr, just hold on a second"With that both your attentions are drawn back at the bush movements and a large grey rodent pops up out of breathe."Sheesh, stripes you enjoying your nature walk? You could've atleast called back.""This is what you were afriad of, this puny rat?" You look down at the newcomer with abit of contempt."Hey who's this?" He stands up on his hind legs trying to look imposing, or atleast as imposing as a mouse can try to be. You feel an odd sensation coming forming in the back of your mind. As if your beast mode, was trying to tell you something. "Rattrap, this is Nightracer. The new...Maximal that emerged from the stasis pod." "So your the one that broadcasted on the open channel. Got everyone all riled up." He scoffs abit. "Almost got me slagged cause of you.""Thats funny, I've almost been slagged by every damn bot i've met since landing here." You poof out some of you feathers. You feel this overwhelming urge to dive down and snatch the rat in your talons. Its tempting with his attitude. Tigatron just shakes his head in annoyed defeat. "For the last time, I apologize!" You can't help but get a bit of satisfaction by bullying this big bad tiger. Not that its not warrented. He shot at you and hurt poor little Waspinator.As the three of you continue this, you hear a screech comig from the west. "Terrorsaur, Terrorize!"This is going to be a thing now isn't it? *sigh*>Transform and draw your weapon>Dive bomb the rat. Something about him looks....appetizing.>Oh great, he's got shoulder guns. I swear if he shoots at me....>Tactical Cloak. Don't mind me, i'll head to the base while you three sort this out>Write in

>>2008565in think we secreatly a beserker
>>2008542oh primus. It's warpath all over again. We're gonna feast on Terrorsaur's spark and wear his T-cog as a fetish.
>Oh great, he's got shoulder guns. I swear if he shoots at me...."Well, well, well, what do we have here? Another accursed Maximal to send to the scrapheap." The flying red lizard screeches and immediately fired off two energy blast....straight at you.You have got to be kidding! You artfully dodge the two energy blast and screech back his face as you raise up your talons and grab him by the head."I AM SICK AND SLAGGIN TIRED OF BEING SHOT AT! SO HELP ME I WILL FEED THE NEXT BOT THEIR SPARK WHO THINKS OF AIMING A BLASTER AT ME!""W-wai-aaaaah! M-merc-mercy!"You screech loudly as you push yourself upward, twisting your body and send Terrorsaur flying in the air out of control in the direction he flew in from. You can't quite tell but you are pretty sure you might have seen his head fly in a different direction than his body. With a deep breathe you give an long enraged 'Hoooooot' as you look down at the two Maximals on the ground each who had transformed by look awestruck at your majestic white form. You lower yourself down. "Um, well now. That...""Shut it." You swack at them. "Ugh. I swear. If you two don't put your guns away, you'll be joining him.""Sheesh. Are you sure she wasn't reprogrammed as a Predacon?""What was that rodent?!"Rattrap immediately transforms back into his mouse from. "Hey, hey easy. It was nothing. Just a joke."Tigatron immediately transforms back to his beast mode as well. "...Are you....alright?"You take a long deep breathe. Damn did that feel good and now these two seem afraid of you? Maybe you could use that to your advantage?>Bully them; make one of them carry you back. You're beat>Apologies for your out burst. It wasn't very Maximal of you>Just tell them to lead the way to the base>Maybe you should make your case, with another display of violence>Write in[Last vote]
>>2008647>>Just tell them to lead the way to the base

>>2008653seconding.god i wish grimlock was here to see that
>>2008647This is twice now that terrorsaur has gotten tore up by us by to completely different bots.I think we have unlocked favored enemy status.
>>2008647>Just tell them to lead the way to the baseJust...just lead me back to your base before it happens again.
>>2008647>Just tell them to lead the way to the baseWe've had a long day, let's just get to base before we have to start pecking peoples eyes out.(hate to have missed most of the thread but tylonal takes no prisoners)
>>2008670Yea i hear that. Sleep keeps tryin to take me, after workin today but gotta get this thread done haha.
>>2008670>Just tell them to lead the way to the baseLet's just find ourselves whatever robots use as a bed, we're beat.
hehe alright. Actually surprised how this vote turned out writing.
>>2008709guess we try to only aim or rage at the one who set us off
>>2008715I meant the lack of bullying and establishing the pecking order.Though I do think this restrained personality is an interesting twist from Warpath's violent impulses.
>>2008727We're like a timebomb of tiny rage.
>>2008727well, restrained until we snap and get even VIOLENTER then warpath basically, we too tired for bully, we do that after a sleep cycal
>>2008727Well, both warpath and nightracer just fucked up terrorsaur soo...
>>2008737Well thats why i made the bully option a 'carry me; im tired' choice. thought it'd be funny
>Just tell them to lead the way to the base.To turn your eyes towards the tiger. "I've had a long day. Let's just get to this base of yours before I have to sart pecking people's eyes out."You have to admit, venting your frustrations felt good on that robot. Not that anyone can really blame you. Plus it lacked your more sutdle approach to 'problem solving' but still, a part of you relished it. The two Maximals look at each other and look back to you. "R-right. Um, this way." Rattrap says as he turns around leading the way back the way he came. He periodically looks over his shoulder to see where you're at. "It should be clear of any more Preds now.""I dont care if they're Pred or not, just tell'em to keep there blasters out of my sight."Tigatron softly chimes in. "If things have settled down, then that shouldn't be an issue."Good. You've got to admit, you didnt think you'd be this eager to get in a sleep cycle after having basically been in stasis for as long as you were. However long that was is still a mystery to you. And how did you end up on this ship to begin with?You really don't feel like thinking about it. Right now you just want to see this base, get a room and crash. And who knows, maybe you can get one of these Maximals to get you some dirty mech fluid mixed with just a touch of radium.....And that'll do it for this week. Wheew. Well I'm glad to see you guys are enjoying this reboot of the Quest. Nightracer is definitely quite the character so far. As always I'll be here to answer any questions comments and such.
>>2008743Being a bully all day long makes us predictable, it will have a better impact if we bully them sparedly
So I definately had a few questions of my own.The biggest one is if everyone happy with the tone of Nightracer, personality wise?I'm still trying to get a solid image of how she should sound considering her behavor (based on choices and her function)
>>2008766supporting>>2008765so, wonder what terrosaurs thoughts on us are now that we, a tiny bot, went batshit crazy on his ass
>>2008780Bully Birb is wonderful, love her. She's just the right amount of angry and sensible.She seems like someone who's willing to give people chances, but lord help you if you test her patience.
>>2008790yeah, thats my take on her too
>>2008780I am.So far she's playing like we're feeling, a frustrated bot that likes waspinator and is tired of being shot at by assholes who are so damn eager to reach for a blaster rather than talking like reasonable people.Hell she probably reflects a good portion of the populace back on cybertron that either avoided the war during the autobot decepticon days, or was born after it. "The last time to idiots had a punch up it almost destroyed our planet, more than once" (Hell if we're going by G1 canon it almost got the place eaten by fucking Unicron)She's not going to be happy to see a bunch of fuckers trying to start this shit again small scale.Talk first, and when that fails put a damn bullet in their head is probably going to be her go to, at least until she gets an understanding of who's she's dealing with.Then with most preds it's going to be stealth sniping because besides waspinator they're a bunch of dicks, well bitch in blackarachnia's case, but you get what I meant.
>>2008788He's still trying to figure out what the hell happened. Seeing as he though he had the drop on you guys, he's currently now terrified by the white feathered specter that just literately ripped him a new one. That said, I doubt he will believe Waspinator or Inferno when they get back to the Pred base to discuss their failure
>>2008790>>2008797>>2008805Interesting interesting. I do kind of like the fact that she talks to folks but I feel that it conflicts abit with her Infiltrator status.I do love the idea of her bullying other bots. it makes her almost a polar opposite to Airazor.
>>2008815be polite, be effecient, have a plan to frag everyone you meet.
>>2008815Well, she give folks a chance to talk first time. I doubt Inferno or Terrorsaur have much to hope for but headshots in the future.
>>2008880Depends on how much the Predacons believe WaspinatorInferno, is a bit of a hard one to determine. Due to him thinking he's a real insect he has trouble seeing the world otherwise. This includes peopleTerrorsaur is too much in a daze, he's not sure what happened. But if Waspinator can make a strong case, Terrorsaur might be willing to talk. If you guys recall he's a bit of a schemer (usually involving overthrowing Megatron.) He did infact, 'recruit' Rattrap once when the Maximals sent him to Spy on the Predacons. He was more than eager to believe that he was willing to become a Predacon in order to spare his life.
>>2008890Hmm...Nah, he pulled a blaster on us, that's a definite no no.Also he's not cute like Waspinator, he gets no second chances.
I just hope Cheezebreath or the Tabby remember to have the automated defenses shut down, I don't think Nightracer is going to react well to having more guns aimed at her.
>>2008815I am pretty sure she was not really a soldier but a hunter. The Avalon was a science vessel, makes sense they'd need a bit to find native fauna, survey it from stealth, then if necessary Tranquilize it for more study.
>>2009261that makes a lot of sense, AND explains why we dont deal well with having gus pointed at us>>2009182if it does the rats going for a ride
>>2008822oh no. we've created a cybertronian force recon marine.It's like Carlos Hathcock and James Mattis built a daughter.
>>2010512...i odnt know either of those names
>>2010512I prefer Hathcock and Puller.>>2010548Carlos Hathcock is a famous US Sniper from the Vietnam War. Wore a white feather in his hat. The whole "shooting the enemy sniper through their scope" thing in movies? Came from one of his kills. He also took an M2 .50 Heavy Machine Gun and, without a scope, killed a Viet Cong on a bicycle at 1000 yards.He had 93 CONFIRMED kills (confirmed meaning an Officer had to be there to witness it, aside from Hathcock and/or his spotter). Estimates put it closer to 300-400 kills. He also wore a white feather in his hat, only removed for one mission where he stalked and killed an NVA officer for 4 days and 3 nights, without sleep, crawling inch-by-inch over a field for 1500 yards.James Mattis is the current Secretary of Defense for the United States and a Marine Corps General who had command during the Iraq War.
>>2010608Sorry, the M2 Browning kill was at 2500 yards, and was the longest recorded kill from 1967 to 2002 (where a Canadian sniper team broke it in Afghanistan)
>>2009182>>2010001Makes you wonder what nickname the rodent's going to pick for us. 'Birdbot' and 'feathers' and anything else to do with our beak, talons, wings etc. are viable, but equally viable for Airrazor so they're not really identifiers. Perhaps 'Snow White' if he wants to be patronizing, or 'Hooters' if he just wants to be crude?
>>2010646I was considering Hooters once they got to the base. If the voters tolerate or not would help direct Nightracer’s personality and what her fellow maximals think of her.
>>2012006Hooters sounds very tongue and cheek. I love it.
>>2012034She can still bully him for it while taking it that way
>>2012092i like that idea, we dont take anybody shit, we fling it right back at them
>>2012105Pic related of Nightracer and pretty much every bot she bullies
Just discovered this existed. Please don't let this quest die.
>>2015234Dont worry it wont. I'm just taking a few days after running for a few days. Next thread will start next Wed but there are times we run multiple days Hope you can catch us
>>2015271WE LOVE YOU PRIMUS!
