Beast Wars QuestArchives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Beast%20Wars%20QuestCharacter 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 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 QuestDuring a mission with Dinobot and Cheetor, Nightracer became separated from the group as a result of a cave in. While Nightracer was able to escape with the unlikely assistance of Blackarachnia, the fate of our other two Maximals is still unknown....
Hey! I'm right on time this time!
Ok so this thread will start off a bit more different than the usual threads. We're gonna have a series of rolls to determine what happened to the other Maximals during/after the cave inSo if you're a regular, lemme know you're here. New folks, welcome and feel free to join.Quick reminder to the questers: You have a banked roll of 94 to us ONCE this thread. Should you guys get a low roll (even a crit fail) you may vote to swap it out for the 94So lets start things with a quick questionDo you guys want to know the Target Numbers in advance for this series of rolls or would you prefer the suspense of randomness. Seeing as its not directly Nightracer's (PC)
>>2092481It doesn't matter too much to me, but it can be entertaining to watch anons celebrate/mourn their rolls against the number.
>>2092487Sounds good to meAlright so first then lets see how Cheetor and Dinobot manage to get out of the tunnel. they were ahead of nightracer so they've got a better chance of escaping. Additionaly Cheetor is slightly faster than Dinobot so here we goCheetor TN 45Dinobot TN 50Give me 2d100
Rolled 72, 68 = 140 (2d100)>>2092534

just need a tie breaker

alrightwriting (as this is a best 3 of 5 quest; if 2 more votes show up, i'll make appropriate adjustments)
Cheetor and Dinobot push towards the entrance they came in with as the tunnel starts to collapse. Nightracer is flying close behind them as Blackarachnia appears. She begins to open fire but with the collapsing rocks the shots ricochet, limiting the movements from the fleeing Maximals. As the rocks tumble Cheetor takes several hits as does Dinobot. The roar of their beast forms echoes as they try to clear the debri but both fall just a bit short and the darkness takes them.An indeterminably amount of time pass. The sound of moving rock and muffled comments are muted until an erruption of a large blue and brown robot emerges. Sparks cause his joints to twitch as he stands in place. Dinobot starts knocking rocks away from where he stands. "Cheetor, Nightracer. Report."He looks around. Following the sound of a soft groan, he blast a few more boulders out of the way, finding a bright yellow spotted cat. "Cheetor, are you functional?""Ugh, yea i think i'm alright." the cat is slow to get up trying to shake off the pain. "Head's still spinning but i'm sure that'll go away after a bit." He tries looking around. "W-where's Nightracer?"He turns to face the wall of caved in ceiling behind them. "Either trapped on the other side or buried underneath all this mess.""We have to help her. Cheetor, ugh, Maxmize!" The cat bounces back into his robot mode, sparks emanating from his joints. "We're in too poor condition to help her. IF she survived. Let us hope she manage to reach stasis lock.""We can't just leave her." Cheetor says as he tries to move around some rocks.>Dinobot and Cheetor attempt to move around more of the rocks.>Dinobot and Cheetor need to begin internal repairs first. >They head out of the cave first, try to radio of back up>Write in
>>2092686>>Dinobot and Cheetor need to begin internal repairs first.
>>2092686>Dinobot and Cheetor need to begin internal repairs first.
>Dinobot and Cheetor need to begin internal repairs first. It takes a bit for Dinobot to get through to the kid, but he finally drags the younger bot out of the cavern. They look around the outside to check to make sure no Predacons have made there way around. Once they were confident it was safe, they took a defenisve position outside."How much longer should we wait? We can't just leave her waiting.""We will help her as soon as we have our strength back. No sooner."Cheetor starts pacing around. He didnt like the idea of leaving their newest comrade waiting. Nightracer was counting on them, on him. "Will you stop that? It wont make things go any faster." the raptor hissed."I can't just sit here while our friend is in there." "And what do you propose we do? We've taken damage and need to finish our job on top of everything.""I..I know. Its just...""Relax. We'll go in soon enough."The Maximals remained in the woods. Fortunately there was no signs of any Predacon back up. Or any sign of them coming out before Nightracer so they weren't digging yet. Scorponok was dealt with but even then there was a chance he could be revived. They hadn't fully cleared the tunnels and haven't found where the Predacons were coming in from.>Prioritize rescue; fellow bots come first>Prioritize the mission>Prioritize getting a hold of the Maximals>Write in

>Prioritize getting a hold of the MaximalsDinobot opens a com channel."Maximal base, this is Dinobot. Do you copy?"Nothing but static. "Well what now? We're too far from base." Cheetor ask. "And no telling when and where Tigatron and Airazor are. We need to go in there."Dinobot looked back at the tunnel. "Hmmm, very well. Lets get started." He leads the way towards the cavern entrance. When Cheetor stops him."Wait, shouldn't we mark this area for the others to find it? If our coms dont work at the moment, maybe they'll send a search party.""What do you suggest?">Make a fire, smoke will be seen far and wide.>Mark the outside of the cave; someone near will see it.>Clear some of the trees from the area.>A mark may alert the Preds.

>>2093180>Make a fire, smoke will be seen far and wide.
Hey Primus, you got any ideas for some upcoming OC bots? I liked the anteater a lot from the last quest.
>>2093180>>Make a fire, smoke will be seen far and wide.Come at me bitches.
>>2093207I've got several, some saved up from the last run that we never got too alot of them Predacon, but a few good Maximal ideas too. Even a few Fuzors. I even have all the toyline cards if you guys wanted one of those characters if Nightracer doesn't go after a pod for whatever reason.
>>2093218I want, like...I want another Gorilla, but like mixed with...uh....a birb of some type.Yeah.
>>2093225i'll make a notei'm always looking for cool ideas for potential bots
Rolled 41 (1d100)oh and writing
>Make a fire, smoke will be seen far and wide."Dinobot, Maximize." the raptor transforms. "You get started and be careful not to start another avalanche. I'll get a signal fire started.""You got it." Cheetor turns and runs inside the tunnel. Dinobot moves back towards the tree line with his spinning sword in hand. He looks above the cliff side and the tree line where they were hiding at, determining the best place to set the fire.Meanwhile, Cheetor charges in to the tunnel. "Don't worry Nightracer, I'll get you out of there." He moves with great speed and determination as he approaches the rock pile."Cheetor, Maximize." He approaches the pile and listens first. No sound. He starts moving around the larger rocks to see if he can clear a way through the rocks. "Hopefully Dinobot's right and you're ok."Dinobot proceeds to cut down one tree along the tree line and moves it closer towards the rocky side. Making a signal fire was his objective, not a forest fire. It'd serve no purpose, unless the woods were full of Predacons. Hacking and slashing the trunk into smaller pieces he makes a wood pile. Taking a few steps back, he fires his eye lasers to get the flames going.He hoped that someone would be around to see this, but even he was pessimistic. Maybe Airazor with her vision would see it but it depends on where she was during her patrol. Tigatron would be too far north and the terrain would be unlikely to make the smoke visible. It was a long shot but maybe Rhinox and Rattrap, but where they went off to was in the far south. Dinobot simply shook his head in frustration and decided to check on the feline.>Perspective shift (bit of a time jump) to Airazor>Perspective shift (bit of a time jump) to Tigatron>Perspective shift (bit of a time jump) to Blackarachnia>Focus on Dinobot/Cheetor>Write in

>>2093275no worries i got the jist of it
>Perspective shift (bit of a time jump) to AirazorTaking flight towards the direction Nightracer hoping to catch Tigatron to assist her fellow Maximals. Airazor had to admit that the snowy owl wasn't quite what she expected. She didn't seem like such a scary bot nor did she seem like she had a short circuit like Rattrap had made her out to be. Of course, she couldn't quite take Rattrap serious wen it came to such matters. Though Tigatron did say she was eccentric, and at first Airazor would disagreed. Until that last part. Her head still was sore from crashing into her. And...then there was Nightracer's manner of speaking to her. Strange, she though. Chalk it up to stress, the falcon guessed.But for now she needed to focus on the task. Her fellow Maximals were in danger and needed help. With the upmost urgency, she flew threw the setting sun sky; her optic sensors scanning the ground for any sign of the Maximals. Or Blackarachnia for that matter. She didn't like the idea of her being a wild card lurking in the woods, waiting for the right moment to ambush her or her friends.Airazor focused on gliding after a bit, the strain of moving to fast had made her more tired than she was already. Fortunately her between scanning the forest floor, she noticed what looked to be blacked out clouds in the distance of the direction she was heading. Smoke? Possibly a battle?"Looks like trouble." She continued to scan the surface of the thick of the woods made her all to tricky to find her wild companion. She started to let her mind wonder about Nightracer and some of the other things Tigatron had mention; namely her manor of talking to him and Cheetor. Sure she was in no position to say anything or do anything but it did make her weary of what her intentions might be. Still its not like she could really say anything. Not without saying 'too much'.Airazor closed on the area. With her scanners on full, she was bound to see something here.>Scan the area with full array (roll to search)>Maybe coms would be easier>Focus on one area, the smoke in the distance>Write in

Airazor's eyes zoom in closer to the source of the smoke. Her internal scanners using every possible scanning system to get a read. She notice two moving figures moving boulders and large rocks outside of a cavern entrance. Looks like Dinobot and Cheetor are ok."Airazor to Dinobot, Cheetor come in."Static. Slag still too far out.

>Cry out with a falcon cryAirazer give a low screech to get their attention. Hopefully they'll look up when the sound travels their way. As she continue looking that the smoke, comlink open for her allies, Airazor catches something out of the corner of her eye. Someone is firing upon her. She'd been so focused on finding the others, she had ignored what was around her. Climbing rapidly in the sky she notices though, her dodge was not needed as the projectile didn't have enough power to reach her elevation. Airazor does hear though a tiger's roar from the forest below, just ahead of her. Is he in trouble or is he responding to her call?"Tigatron to Airazor, is that you?""Airazor here. Glad to hear from you. The others are just ahead, but someone took a shot at me.""Hrrrr, Nightracer said, Blackarachnia was out here.

>Negative, lets focus on our friends"Lets prioritize the others. If she's looking for trouble, i'm sure the four of us can accomidate."Tigatron chuckles. "Sounds good. Provided everyone is alright." "By the looks of it, they seem to be fine. Still lets not daddle."The two of long ranged scout Maximals head out towards the cavern where the smoke and Cheetor and Dinobot are at. Dinobot and Cheetor stop moving as they hear the bird cry and see the bird in the distance."Hey alright! Looks like the chavolriy has arrived.""Hhph, better late then never." Dinobot growls. He drops his aggressive stance as Cheetor gives him a playful punch in the arm.The two relax abit, but tention gets elevated when they see the weapon fire heading towards the flier."By the pit!"Cheetor snarls. "There must be more Predacons in the forest." He draws his weapon.Dinobot redraws his sword and shield. "We should get ready and get to cover."Airazor and Tigatron start getting closer. "Airazor to Cheetor. Its Airazor, I'm coming in with Tigatron. Are you guys alright?""Boy are we glad to see you guys. We need a hand. Nightracer is still missing. We've been trying to find her.""No worries boys. She's fine. Found a way back to the Axalon." The two Maximals look at each other, Cheetor's eyes wide. Dinobot half smiles with a nod. "Then there's one last thing left." He turns over his shoulder and opens fire on the cavern openning, causing it to collapse. "Dinobot to Maximals. We've taken care of this entrance. Do we know where the other openning is?""Tigatron here. We do and can take care of it on the way back to the base. But first I think we should take care of any lingering Predacon presence.""I dont know big cat," Cheetor response. "Dinobot and I are beat.""Hrmmm, speak for yourself feline."Airazor thinks about it.>Lets hunt down the Pred>Forget them, lets head back>We'll hit up the second entrance and then head back>Write in

Mmm voting closed. Not running but I was curious as to how they felt about doing this other perspective type story. Was it something they want to see more often, once in a great while or mainly focus on the PC (Nightracer)
>>2094215Pretty fun by my standards.I wouldn't mind if it happened again.
>>2094215Interesting. Wouldn't want it to happen too often, but in situations where our bird is already down and there's still important story to tell it seems a good thing.
>>2094369Yea that’s what I was kind of aiming for. I didn’t want it to feel too dues ex for the maximals to just come back ok. The next update will resume Nightracer POV, might do something tonight but mostly likely fri
I like this>>2094369
Good to know. Thanks for the feedback guysWe will be resuming in roughly 2 hours
>We'll hit up the second entrance and then head back"It would be best to hit that breach into our territory before heading back. It'll prevent the Predacons from getting pass our patrols.""Very well, though I suggest Cheetor and Dinobot prioritize the base." Tigatron adds."I dont mind," Cheetor says returning to beast mode. "I could use the snooze.""Agreed. Too risky to further engage in our current state." the raptor adds. The others could see he was less than enthusiastic to walk away from the fight, but even Dinobot knew when it was time to tactically withdraw.With their mission completed, the Maximals retire for the day. It'll be sometime before they can try anything like that again. But after receiving the update from Nightracer and the rest of the Maximals, Optimus is convinced that the Predacons are planning to something and is working on a counter strategy. Switching up to back to Nightracer perspective in next post
Sometime has passed since the previous mission. You've had plenty of downtime for you and the rest of the Maximals to get healed up and ready to begin operations. Optimus has filled you in that despite the last mission hurting their efforts, they haven't been as aggressive to retaliate. He's asked to speak with you; presumably with a potential series of assignments.>Head straight to Optimus' office, see what the boss monkey has for you>Mingle around the Crew Quarter's areas, see who's home (specify a Maximal to talk to)>Peruse the Armory, maybe look for some toys to play with for next mission>Review the previous mission debrief>Write in
>>2095986>>Review the previous mission debrief
>>2095986>>Review the previous mission debriefMight as well analyse what happened from other perspectives, I'm not sure our 'bird knows the Cheetor and Chooper side of the story yet.
>Review the previous mission debriefYou decide to access a data pad inside your quarters with the latest update of your last mission.>Optimus Assessment: The initial patrol went without any mishaps. Nightracer and Dinobot thoroughly investigated the outlaying area and found no unusual compromises to our defense. Dinobot reports Nightracer conducted herself professionally sticking to the mission during this objective."Well that doesn't sound too bad. Actually it sounds pretty good." you think to yourself. You continue your reading. >After encountering Cheetor on his mission, he reported his identification of what we determined to be a Predacon mining operation, which was in fact also the means of their infiltration of our territory. Nightracer successfully disarmed an alarm allowing us to maintain a stealth entrance. While inside we discovered a series of tunnels within and thanks to Nightracer and Cheetor, discovered the operation within an operation. The Predacons seem to be mining both energon and ore for purposes unknown, but Dinobot seems to suspect it'll be uses for either weapons or as I believe, means of hampering our own future operations. The unit were then forced to engage Predacons forces inflicting serious damage to their operatives, Scorponok and Blackarachnia.Hmm, you wouldn't exactly say you did serious damage to Blackarachnia but you did got a few good licks in...after she got the drop on you, but it wasn't necessary to get too specific on certain details.>While making their escape is when things went south. Dinobot manage to cause some damage to the internal structure resulting in a cave in that injured all parties. Nightracer was separated from the group while the remaining members manage to exit the tunnel to initiate repairs. Using her guile, Nightracer manage to coerce Blackarachnia into showing her the way out and struck an accord to manage her escape from the tunnel network. She manage to make contact with Tigatron and Airazor, allowing them to reinforce and rescue our remaining members. The team proceeded to secure the other tunnel entrance and for now, disable it as a means for the Predacons to access their makeshift backdoor into our region.Hmmm not a bad mission overall if you do say so yourself. >Head straight to Optimus' office, see what the boss monkey has for you>Mingle around the Crew Quarter's areas, see who's home (specify a Maximal to talk to)>Peruse the Armory, maybe look for some toys to play with for next mission>Hmm, test out your decryption skills see if you can find any other information>Write in

>Head straight to Optimus' office, see what the boss monkey has for youYou toss the data pad off to the side as you climb out of your bed and leave the dormitories. Gotta remember to thank the kid for find you the large bed. Such a good kitten. Making your way up to the main deck, you head straight for the control center leading to Optimus' office. Rhinox is preoccupied at his console while Rattrap appears to be playing a card game against the computer. You press the chime for the the door. "Enter."The door slides open and you see Optimus review a some intel on a data pad similar to your own. "Heya boss bot. Got anything for me to do to day?""Ah, Nightracer. Indeed." Optimus sets the pad down while reaching for a new one before turning his attention to you. "So what's on the agenda?""Well there's a few things I've got some interest in having taken care of." He hands you the data pad. "After your last ""No solo ops? My skill set is a bit more suited for that."He just chuckles. "Not this time around.

>Planetary Exploration >Scanner Duty>Sector PatrolOver looking the screen you try to determine which task sounds the most appealing. But before you commit to anything you had a few questions about some the task.“Hmm, tell me about Scanner Duty. That doesn’t exactly seem like a ‘team’ project.” Plus you figure this one sounds the least exciting, but what are the chances you’ll get shot at? Some R&R in a chair doesn’t seem too bad, right? “Well it’s more of you filling in for Rhinox. With the rest of the Maximals taking some of the other task, someone needs to be here while he deals with his own mission.”“And that is?”“Making some improvements to the base defenses. The Predacon’s mining gives me the idea that they’re gonna try something and soon. If all else fails, we’ll need the Axalon to be at its best. I’d rather two Maximals on duty here than leave Rhinox on his own, even with Sentinel on high alert.”Makes sense. “Alright. Tell me about Planetary Exploration.”“Well as im sure you know, the Axalon isn’t a war vessel. Our original mission was to go on planetary exploration of new worlds and study them. Well this is an unusual world with its naturally. And then there are some strange anomalies that need to be scanned and investigated.”“Odd. So who would I be working with on those task?”“It’ll vary from region to region.”“Ok, well then lastly, sector patrol.”“Fairly self explanatory. Not unlike what you just did but it will be in another area. You’re primary mission will be to report any Predacon movements. Don’t engage if it can be avoided. Wait for back up. You’ll be out there with one other Maximal depending on the region.”Hmm interesting task.

>>2097073>>2097077Gonna be spilling all our birdseed now.
>Investigate unknown anomalies in the southern coast (ally will be Airazor)Upon thinking about it, you feel that you and Airazor would be able to make better use of your optics without all the trees around. If there's anything suspicious out there, the two of you should be able to find it."I'm positive Airazor and I will make a great team looking over the coast.""Very well. If you like I'll have her head over to to the region now or if you'd prefer, i'll have her head here and the two of you can head out." Optimus rubs his chin. "Probably better to have her return here so I can give her a full briefing as the mission lead."Hmm, taking orders from Airazor? You guess it makes sense, seeing as she's been active longer than you. But still, this might be a golden opportunity for you. This mission could be a great chance to make a stronger connection with Airazor; maybe make up for your first interaction with her....or you can try to get her under your thumb, like you do Cheetor. A little bullying never hurt.>Ask Optimus if you can take command of the mission (meet Airazor at the location)>Ask Optimus if you can take command of the mission (Have Airazor return to base)>I'm certain Airazor will do fine as leader (Meet her out there)>I'm certain Airazor will do fine as leader (Wait for her to reach the base)>WIll i need any additional equipment for this job.>Write in

>>2097185>>I'm certain Airazor will do fine as leader (Meet her out there)Let's see what her experience with this world is worth.>WIll i need any additional equipment for this job.Nothing wrong with making sure your kit is up to snuff.
>>2097185>>I'm certain Airazor will do fine as leader (Meet her out there)>WIll i need any additional equipment for this job.
>>I'm certain Airazor will do fine as leader (Meet her out there)>WIll i need any additional equipment for this job."I'm sure we'll succeed with Airazor in command." "Glad to hear it. We'll attempt to send her a message...""Um, just have her meet me at the location. This way we can begin looking out for the anomaly immediately."Optimus cocks an eyebrow. "Hmm, very well. Normally that's a commander's decision, but I'll let it slide.""Will I need any additional equipment for this job?" you ask. He rubs his chin. "There's a few energy scanners that might prove useful that Rhinox usually uses. You should be able to carry two, one for each of you.""Sounds good. I'll head out immediately.""Good hunting, Nightracer. Do be careful out there; we're not expecting any Predacons to be in the area, but you never know.""Right."With a nod you turn around and head back to the armory. You look around through the gear and find your energy scanners. There's also a slew of goodies in here.>Just take the Scanners>Grab some ammo packs, never know>Ooo, are those Demo charges?>Survey post might make things handy>Write in
>>2097464>Just take the Scanners>Grab some ammo packs, never know
>>2097464Scanners and ammo are fine.
>>2097464>Just take the Scanners>Survey post might make things handy
>Just take the Scanners>Grab some ammo packs, never knowYou grab the two scanners but you also move over to wear the ammo packs are. You had used up one when trying to sabatoge the digging machine. You could use a few spares."Couldn't hurt to have a few of these." You snag a few and place them on your person. You exit the room and head on back to the main control center. Rhinox turns to you as you head over to the lift."Airazor has been informed of your mission. She'll meet you just a few clicks north of your destination.""Sounds good.""Good luck out there.">Head on out to your mission.>Get a bit flirty with the Rhinox>Bully the rhino a bit>Ask the rhino a few questions before you leave (specify)>Where are the others? (specify)>Write in
>>2097558>>Head on out to your mission.
>>2097558>Head on out to your mission.
>>2097558Thank the rhino and go out to ous mission
>Head on out to your mission."Thanks Rhinox. Keep the lights on."You watch as the lift's door drops down along with the lift."Beast mode." You transform into your snowy owl form and put a scanner in each talon. You take to the air and head off towards the south coast. The view is quite scenic; you haven't really been given the chance to enjoy what the planet has to offer. That said it also makes you long for the vague memories of Cybertron. You hadn't given much thought to the old world. Things had been intense to say the least. But nows not the time for reminiscing. You've got work to do and you need to focus. You don't want to be taken by surprise like Airazor was last mission. What was that about? And here you thought Blackarachnia was cool. Well, aesthetically atleast; dem heels and all. You keep flying to the south to reach your fellow bird girl. Your last conversation was..interesting, and sadly left you both with a bit of a headache. How do you want to handle this time?>Lets keep it professional, we got a job to do.>Nothing wrong with getting friendly; Optimus said there was little chance for Preds>Bird girls should be close. hopefully it'll go better this time around>Bully bird; Secure your place as alpha girl>Write in
>>2097667>Lets keep it professional, we got a job to do.But chit chat a bit on the way.Then after the second sector we get friendly a bit.
>Lets keep it professional, we got a job to do.But chit chat a bit on the way.Then after the second sector we get friendly a bit.It doesn't take too long to reach the rendezvous point. You see Airazor circling up ahead. "Hey there bird girl. Coming in." you call out. Airazor turns towards your direction. "Good to see you Nightracer. Glad that its under better circumstances." "Agreed. Not a fan of caverns." You chuckle. "Oh by the way, i've got us some scanners to assist with our search for these anomalies. Nightracer, Maximize." You transform to pass the scanner to your partner. She transforms in kind to take it. "Great. Shall we begin?" Airazor turns on her scanner. "So what do you think? Robot mode or Beast mode?""You're asking me?" you look at her. "But your the leader.""Optimus put me in charge of the mission, true but I prefer the input of my fellow Maximals." Huh, Dinobot could learn a think or two from her."What's the difference?""Well, In beast mode, we'll be able to scan without worrying about energon build up." She holds up the scanner. "But, these things aren't exacty modeled for our kind." Airazor gestures to her talons. "That said, in robot mode, we can be far more thorough and fly a bit faster, but we'll have to keep switching back and forth to beast mode. If we run into any problems, we'll have less time to deal with them."What do you suggest?>She's the leader, she should decide>Beast mode, it'll make scanning harder but you'll be a bit more inconspicuous >Robot mode, faster movement and more precise scanning at the cost of energon build up>Lets try to balance each; will take much longer but fully thorough>Write in
>>2097854>Lets try to balance each; will take much longer but fully thoroughOne in beast mode one transformed, we alternate.
>>2097854>>She's the leader, she should decidebut we'd recommend>Lets try to balance each; will take much longer but fully thoroughNo sense doing the job if we don't do it properly. Plus, gives more time to hang out with Airazor.
>Lets try to balance each; will take much longer but fully through"Well if you're asking me, there's no sense doing the job if we don't do it properly, so we should try to balancing it out. One of us in beast mode while the other is in robot mode."Airazor thinks about it. "An interesting idea. Sound logic and we should be able to find the what all the hubbub is out here." She nods. "I like it. Well then lets get started. Who should take the first scan in robot mode?">You volunteer, let her watch your back>She should be the first, you'll watch her back>Write in[this will be the last vote of the night; after this one though we'll do a quick roll]

>You volunteer, let her watch your back"Watch my back while I'll take the first series of scans.""Right. Beast mode." Airazor return to her falcon form with the scanner in her talons. "Well lets hit the wind."The two of you fly towards the coast line and begin your scans. The erratic landscape makes it tricky to get accurate scans, constantly having to adjust your position to get any trace of a clear signal. But so far there's nothing that seems suspect. You expected this to a degree, its unlikely that it would be this easy."So far nothing overly unusual. Energon deposits, but thats normal." You say looking over the readings on the screen. "Very well. Lets move to the next location. Further down, towards the rock formations." You both fly further along the beach to a cliff side. "Alright lets keep up with the next series of scans." You start moving around the area, weaving in and out of the formations. Airazor circles above as she keeps an eye out for anything unusual.You wanted to chit chat a bit, what should you talk about>Discuss your experiences since emerging from your pod>Ask if she's had any experiences involving the Predacons>Ask her for any information or places of interest on this planet>Inquire about her and Tigatron>Write in

>Discuss your experiences since emerging from your pod>Ask her for any information or places of interest on this planet>Inquire about her and TigatronWhile you two proceed with your scan's, a little conversation might make things go quicker."I"ve got to admit, ever since I've awoken on this planet, things have been...""Chaotic?""Yea. Between the Predacons and certain Maximals, it makes you wish for a shuttle craft to the next star system." You tease."Its not so bad, though I can see how things can be quite overwhelm. I wasn't sure what to make of all of it when I emerged." She pauses for a moment. "You mentioned 'certain' Maximals?""Of the rodent variety." you flex your free hand, mimicking a taloned foot digging into flesh."Ah, yes. I can see that.""So anything interesting about this planet?" You notice Airazor stop circling in the air; she flaps her wings to bring herself lower towards you. "Well there have been a few unusual places." She tilts her head. "There's the standing stones, oh and one two occasions there have been floating landmasses.""Really? That seems...off.""You're telling me. The floating island was quite odd. It was naturally beautiful dont get me wrong but, definitely not natural. Tigatron was there too, he could probably explain it better than I. He spent more time there."It would appear this world has an array of mysteries. But one thing does seem quite clear. You zoom in closer to Airazor almost startling her."Hmm, you seem to have a high opinion of the tiger. You frequently mention him."She flaps, moving a bit back. "Oh, yea. Well, he and i work together fairly often, since we spend more time out in the field unlike the others.""Mmmhmm.""What's that suppose to mean? I mean, from my understanding you've been bonding with some of the others. Like Cheetor." She seems to be avoiding eye contact. "I mean, Tigatron has mentioned you're more unique 'mannerisms' that you display towards him, Cheetor and even Rattrap." She pauses. "Wait...when we were talking last time, you got closer to me. You know, when we bumped heads..."Before Airazor continues you noticed your scanner suddenly starts beeping as if its detected something.>"Lets put a pin in this conversation; and focus on the scanner">"Dont change the subject? You and Tigatron right?">"I thought we could bond a bit ourselves">"Are you jealous? I could teach you my way's of bonding with the boys">Bird's getting a bit snappish; assert your self with some bullying>Write in

>"Dont change the subject, you and Tigatron right?">"Are you jealous? I could teach you my way's of bonding with the boys"Airazor starts to stumble over her words and the beeping seems to enough to put her at ease. "Oh finally, we have a signal! Lets get to work.""Dont change the subject," you fly in front of her, and putting the scanner away. "You and Tigatron right? Meow."Airazor is taken aback, putting her hands up. "Well, its...I mean...." She finally slumps her shoulders and lowers her hands and head. "Ugh, is it that obvious...""Hey i'm not judging. But yea, you got it bad for that cat." you chuckle. Your sly expression is only causing her to fidget more."It fairly platonic, I mean. We work together frequently so I guess it makes becoming close natural." She looks to you. "That said, I do wish he'd not feel like he has to handle all his problems on all his own.""Then fix that. Be more assertive with him. Who knows? You might like the results." "I dont know if i could do it that way. Its not really something I've ever done." She gives you a curious look, as if she's considering something. "But you seem to do it differently. Cheetor seems to hang off your every word.""Well I have my ways with bots." You say matter-o-factually. "That said, I'd be more than happy to teach you my way of bonding with the others." Moving closer still. "I guarantee that you'll have Tigatron at you finger tips.""I...dont know. I mean, it doesn't feel quite right." She wraps her arms around herself. "But if it does help, it might be something to think about."You smile to yourself. With a bit of a push, Airazor could start seeing things your way. You might have a fellow bully bird. >Keep up the pressure; join the bully side of the spark>Leave it up to her for now, you want her to make the decision herself>She doesnt have a choice, bully her into learning.>Oh thats right, we had a signal detected. Lets get back to work.>Write in

>Leave it up to her for now, you want her to make the decision herself>Oh thats right, we had a signal detected. Lets get back to work."Well, you know to find me." You lay on the charm nice and thick. You have the feeling that she will put some definate thought to this, so theirs no need for you to make the push. You are a tad bit suprised though that you weren't able to flat out convince her; being an inflitrator, knowing how to say the right thing to people is part of the job. Oh that reminds you. "In the meantime, I do believe the scanner found something." You start to feel your robot form spark a bit. Energon build up. Great. "Looks like I'm up." Airazor says with a smile. "Airazor Maximize." She transforms into her robot form and takes out her scanner as you return to your beast mode."So according to our scanners calculations, there's something in that small cluster of rocks." You nod to confirm and the two of you start heading down closer for a look. As you move around you don't see anything overly strange or unnatural. From talking to Airazor earlier, you glide around the cliff's that meet the surf will she looks over above. Little that looks distinguishable on your end but better to be safe then sorry. "Find anything yet?" you call out."Not quite," She hovers around a little further away, trying to make a few adjustments to the device. "But if i'm reading this right, we shouldnt be too far from....it." Her voice trails off."Airazor?" you call out. "Is everything alright?" You flap your wings over to where she's stopped in mid air."Well thats just prime." she says with a bit of frustration. You look at her and look downward at what she's looking at. Strange markings on the ground."Is...this..what we're searching for?" you tilt your head, dumbfounded. You dont reconginze any of the characters displayed. "It might not be a good sign if it's anything like what we've seen in the past." she shakes her head from her 'dazed' state. "But no, thats not entirely what I was refering too." She shows you the scanner's radar function. "Whatever is here, we're not far from it...but it's underwater."By the pit. And with neither of you exactly built for nautical purposes, this is a dead end. Still not a total lose judging from her reaction to the markings.What should you do?>Get a closer look at the images.

>Get a closer look at the images. Maybe its some kind of puzzle?"Let's get a closer look. Maybe we can figure out what it means. Nightracer, Maximize." You transform and head down to the series of glyphs. As you descend closer towards the images, Airazor reaches to you."Wait Nightracer, don't get to close!"The glyphs start to glow and erupting from the ground, comes a series of sharpened rocks. Airazor and you somewhat collide as she moves to get ahold of you and you move to dodge, missing the spikes by a nanoclick."Are you alright?" she ask you, holding you up close from behind. "That was close.""Well that was...something." You relax a bit, only just noticing you're in Airazor's arms. You turn to her with a smile. "My hero.""I should've warned you sooner. Those are alien markers. The last time I encountered them they marked traps and are on several other artifacts." She looks back at you only know catching your gaze. The expression on her face shifts from concerned to embaressed. "Oh, um well of course. We're friends right?">Pull her in closer "Better than friends">Tease her a bit "Only friends?">Joke with her.

>Joke with her. "If you're gonna hold on that tightly, buy a girl a drink first.""Of course, we are." you say to her. "But if you're gonna hold on that tightly, consider buying a girl a drink first.""Oh!" Airazor realizing she's still holding you, finally lets go and floats backwards to give you two space. She still looks tense but smiling."Well then we just have to decide what we should do now." She says. "If the scanner is correct that whatever this unusual anomaly is underwater, we're at a lost. But we can ask Rhinox for a sensor module to keep tabs on this area.""What will that do?""It'll gather any readings this area may produce and if anything happens to occur while we're not in the vicinity, it'll let us know. Additionally, it'll inform us if any Predacons come snooping down here.""Makes sense. Not a bad plan, leader."Airazor regains a bit more composure with that remark. "Alright then. Unless you can think of anything else to do out here, I suggest we head on back to the Axalon. Mission Completed.">Lets keep looking around>Maybe we should scan a few more areas>Search the area for any signs of Predacon activities>Maybe we can look for any energon deposits >Write in

Gonna finish eating, then we'll resume in an hour and half
>Maybe we should scan a few more areas"We should scan a few more areas nearby. Just to be certain." you tell Airazor."Very well. Lets take a look around." she nods.The two of you switch back to beast mode and fly over towards the coastline. From what you can tell, the coast line westward is a greater stretch before gradually going into the swamp areas but might lead closer towards Predacon ground. The east route is closer towards the Maximal grounds, but not nearly as much area to cover. Directly north of this area is a bit of marshland before reaching to the jungle. You and Airazor flew over this area heading here but didn't scan it. The south is pretty much nothing but ocean, so not ideal for heading out that far.Where do you want to head?>Head to the west>Head to the east>Head to the North>write in

>Head to the NorthYou double back up towards the north where the two of you came in, not going the exact route you came in though. Flying wide out to ensure a more thorough investigation of the region the two of you scan while in beast mode. Will not expecting it to be a fully accurate scan you are pleasantly surprised when your scanners pick up an few stable energon deposits amongst a series of reeds. "Not bad. Rhinox will be glad to hear about this." Airazor says. "It'll help speed up some of our base defense upgrades.""Sounds good to me. Shou-" While speaking you are suddenly interrupted by a faint yet familiar sound in the distance. The sound of buzzing...Oh no. "Airazor, I think we've got company." You say as you look around."Predacons? Who? How many?""I'm fairly certain its Waspinator." Your tones a bit mixed. "Oh my." Airazor retorts. "Well how do you wanna handle him." Her tone shifts to one similar to a particular rodent. "If i recall you two have a...unique acquaintanceship?""Its not like that.""Mmhmm." She chuckles softly. "I'll admit I'm partial to blasting him or just chasing him off. But honestly, he's harmless enough. What do you think? Should we go over and say 'hello'?"Well, it seems the falcon has a bit of bully side to her after all. You know Waspinator well enough to know he probably wont shoot at you, but he might not feel that way about your compatriot. So how should you play this?>You'll distract him, have Airazor head back to the Maximal base with the scan data>Lets go play with Waspinator; mostly chasing him around and away from the energon cashe>Go cloak and see what he's doing out here>Engage him, but not seriously; bully him with blaster fire>Write in

>You'll distract him, have Airazor head back tothe Maximal base with the scan data"I'll keep him distracted. You should be able to sneak away with the data we've collected."Airazor looks to you. "Are you certain thats wise? What if there are more out here?""I'm sure I'll be fine."Airazor looks away for a moment. "Very well, but don't be long. I'd rather not risk your safety on a such a gamble.""Wish me luck then. Hold off from leaving until after I've got his attention though." You start flapping your wings, rise up from the reeds but staying low to the ground. Scanning the area you follow the sound of Waspinator's buzzing and quietly hear the sound of his rambling, similar as to the first time you encountered him. Minus the spinning out of control part. You finally get sight of him but he seems to be just flying a bit erratically in the air, still rambling, still in a tizzy over something. You decide to get in closer flying in right behind him. Your beast mode's wings make you a natural at the stealth approach, even though his form should allow him to see behind. You move in abit closer, just above him, when you decide to finally get his attention with a loud owl screech. Waspinator gets startled almost spinning out of control. "Waaaah?" he moves his head darting around. "B-bird bot?!" "Hey there, busy bee. What's got you all worked up?""Bird bot here?!" He regains himself long enough to hover in one place. "Bird bot looking for Waspinator? Bird bot come to join Waspinator?" You catch out of the corner of your eye Airazor flying off from where you left her heading away towards the Maximal base. Well that was almost too easy. Now you just have to figure out what to do with the bug?>Um no, just seeing whats up>I was looking for some entertainment, care to play?>Well I dont know Waspinator, why don't you tell me why you were out here first>Write in

>Well I dont know Waspinator, why don't you tell me why you were out here first>just flying about enjoying wings.You start flying around, circling around the wasp. He seems skittish trying to determine your intent. Bug was always a bit paranoid, needs to chill. "Well, how about you answer a few questions for me.""Um, What does bird bot want from Waspinator?""How about you tell me what are you doing out here?" You move in close and fall back, gliding away and turning back towards him."Bzzz, Waspinator out here cause Megatron tell Waspinator to be out here.""Did he tell Waspinator what he wanted Waspinator to do out here."He rubs his chin, as if he's trying to determine whether or not he should speak freely. Of course you can always play him a bit more."Aw, c'mon. You can tell Bird bot." you tease, as you fly backwards again, doing a bit of a spin. "Hmmm, Megatron having Waspinator looking around various areas for possible outpost. Maximals destory energon operation. Megatron mad.""Yea....sorry about that." you sarcastically say. Fortunately its a language he's not quite fluent in. "Hope Waspinator didnt get in too much trouble." He waves his small bug legs. "Oh Waspinator, not in trouble." He stats to chuckle. "But not same story for shell head or spider bot. Heeheehee."Well that's a shame. You almost feel bad for them. Well maybe Blackarachnia. You're not quite familiar with shellhead, um, Scorponok. Oh lord is this way of talking congtagious? Yeesh.Well atleast you know what he's doing here? Maybe its time to head back or maybe you could prod him for more infromation. Maybe you dont want to push your luck too far though.>"See if he'll tell you about any of the other locations">"Well it was nice to see you again. Gotta go">Swat the bug>Write in
>"Well it was nice to see you again. Gotta go"Maybe see if he has any info to screw the shitty preds over

>"Well it was nice to see you again. Gotta go."You figure the bug isn't exactly a trove of information, but it's always nice to have a witless informant. Still you should head back to the Axalon before the others begin to worry."Well its been real, but I've got to go.""Wha? Bird bot going?" Waspinator starts to follow you a bit."Yea, got to get back to my base and you should be getting back to work." you give him a sly look. "You don't want Megatron mad right?"He tilts his head as he considers what your saying. You use this as an excuse to move away from him slowly. He finally returns from his 'deep' thoughts."Bird bot right. Waspinator need to complete mission for Megatron." "Well then hop to it." You turn away and give him a bit of a quick flick of your tail feathers as you head back to the Maximal base."Hmph Rather talk to bird bot. Don't want to help Tarantulas later."You stop. "Oh? What's wrong with Tarantulas?""Hmph, Tarantulas building new lair. Tell Waspinator he need to help carry crates to desert. Waspinator hate moving big heavy boxes."Hell-o. "Oh I'm sure its not a such hard task for a big strong bot like yourself?" You work your magic on him yet again. "And just where might this new layer be? I could stop by if in the area?""Heeheeheehe." Waspinator's antenne straighten up. He gives you a set of coordinates in Gird Delta. "Bird bot should visit sooner than later. Tarantulas not nice like visitors.""Oh no worries. I wont be a bother. Thanks again." You again turn tail, this time with greater haste. Just in case he realizes what just happened. It really is all too easy sometimes.As you make your way back, you can't help but hid your smile as you begin catching up to Airazor. Things might just be getting more and more interesting.
