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 QuestNightracer attempted to assist with the base upgrades with....some difficulty.

>>2180270Good to be back>>2180280Sall good. Most everything is out of the way and cleared up
The days have been quiet lately, minus the last of the retrofits of the Maximal base as well as the occasional patrol of the near by sectors. You've taken this time to enjoy light duty and time off to relax after getting your system scan that resulted in your tactical cloak system upgraded. In a rare event, snow has come from the northern mountains down to the valley. While some of the others dread the feeling of their cervos freezing up, the weather seems relaxing to you. No doubt, a result of your beast mode. As far as you know, due to the weather, there's few active missions planned. What would you like to do>Talk to Optimus, see if there's anything offical you can do>Talk to Rhinox, maybe he's got that drone up and running>Find one of the boys, run program "bully.exe">Take the day off and enjoy the weather, go for a flight>Write in

Rolled 94 (1d100)Alright writing up
>>2180333actually its a good thing
>Talk to Rhinox, maybe he's got that drone up and running You decide to head on over to Rhinox's "workshop". You recall asking him about building you a new drone to assist you on your scouting missions. "Hello Rhino." You walts in, perusing the rooms equipment. The large Maximal is sitting down working on something clamped down on a steel work bench. "Ah Nightracer. Glad to see you. Its ready." He lifts up a pair of saudering goggles as he gets up to greet you. "Oh? That little project we discussed. Wonderful." you lay it on a bit thick but not to be insulting. You're certain most everyone here has become accustomed to your mannerisms and Rhinox is one of the more chill bots. He usually just overlooks it."I present you, your new drone." He holds it in both of his hands, for your inspection. "Now a few things first. Its quick and quiet; good for catching a glimpse of areas you might feel are too hazardous for a first hand view. That said, it doesn't have your cloak ability. Too small for that kind of hardware." He taps a few buttons on the top of the device, its wings collapse inword and outward; simulating its 'deployed, stored' states. "Additonally, I factored in your prefered terrian type and weather proofed its internal circuitry. I also had abit of a break through with the device." He collapses it one more time. "While being a reconaissance device, its not exactly a weapon nor can it take a direct hit. But if you find yourself behind enemy lines suffering from energon build up, you can tranfer a small amount to the drone, have it fly close to an enemy bot and have it emit a small energon based EMP that'll effect a small range. You can also have it use the full amount of energon stored to taze a Pred long enough for you to make an escape, if necessary. Mind you it'll only be a short term stun, but it should be sufficient.">Snatch up your new toy and thank the big guy>Take the drone, time for a field test>Ask if he can weaponize the drone instead>Have him hold on to it and see if he can add more features (specify)>Write inSorry for the delay; family stuff *long sigh*
>>2180502>>Snatch up your new toy and thank the big guythen>Take the drone, time for a field test(Also, ask Rhinox if he wants to come with us to try this thing out?)

>>2180502>Snatch up your new toy and thank the big guy>Ask if he can weaponize the drone insteadMake another drone to go with its sibling.>>2180513Do you think rattrap would be willing to dress up as a guinea pig?
>>2180502>>Snatch up your new toy and thank the big guy>Take the drone, time for a field test>make sure to take notes for the next iteration.
alright writing up
>>2180515Not for us, sadly. On a completely unrelated note, next stasis pod needs to land in Peruvian highlands.
>>2180529Chinchilla? or something else in mind.asking for a friend *whistles nonchalantly*
>>2180529And on the Rattrap business im sure he could be made to do so with the right 'persuasion'
>Snatch up your new toy and thank the big guy>Take the drone, time for a field testYou do your best to keep your enthusiasm contained, but with little avail, swiping your new toy out of his hands in a smooth motion."Thanks big guy." you start looking it over. Ideas already brewing inside your head. "Ultragear."Rhinox chuckles. "Glad you like it. Just be careful with it.""Whats that supposed to mean?" You cock a brow at him."All I'm saying is to not get into too much trouble with it. Its still a prototype and it'll take time to make any replacements you might need in the future.""Fair enough." You take your new drone and place it on your body, into a storage compartment. "Then all that's left is a field test.""Well, like i said, careful and don't forget to bring back any collected data you gain with it." "Not interested in a first hand observation?""Under normal circumstances, sure, but I have a few other things to keep me busy."Oh well. Maybe another time. Of course, there are plenty of others around that might prove useful guinea pigs.>First things first, name my new toy (write ins encouraged)>Look for Rattrap. Rats are known for being used for testing>Look for Cheetor. Kid'll do what ever you ask of him>Look for Airazor. Birds of a feather and all that>Look for Dinobot. While the cold is not ideal for lizards, maybe he'll be interested>Look for Tigatron. Will probably be up north, might need to make a trip>Why test on Maximals, when I can hunt a Predacon>Write in
>>2180592>>Look for Rattrap. Rats are known for being used for testingMostly jokingly. If he (as is likely) turns us down, ask the Kid.
>>2180592>Look for Rattrap. Rats are known for being used for testingUse it to sneak up on him and startle him, but don't zap him, ask if he wants to test out our new toy. Call him guinea-trap.
Rolled 49 (1d100)Lets see how alert Rattrap is today.Alright give me a quick stealth roll1d100 (due to the drone not having your stealth bonus)
Rolled 9 (1d100)>>2180630
Rolled 80 (1d100)>>2180630
Rolled 44 (1d100)>>2180644riprat
>Look for rattrap. Rats are known for being used for testingYou smile fiendishly as you exit Rhinox's workshop. "Computer, locate Rattrap. My circuits only."RATTRAP IS CURRENTLY ON THE MAIN DECK.Oh perfect. "Are any other Maximals up there."NEGATIVEAll according to plan. You move as quietly as you can up to the main deck and lurk in the hallway. You spy your prey sitting at the main computer console, his feet kicked up. Honestly your not sure he's actually on monitor duty or just lounging around. Slacker. You activate your drone, controlling it to approach him from behind. It hovers from one shoulder until he turns his head to look, only for you to move it to the opposite. Rattrap spins his chair around."Heh? Who's there?" Rattrap looks around the control room as you raise up the drone and duck back into the hallway. If only you could see him right now. With that though, your drone activates a live camera feed to your interface. Well now isnt that a nifty feature. You bring down the drone back down behind Rattrap's head. He's still looking around the room. "Eh, must've been the wind outside." As he goes to turn around he gets an eye full of your drone and stumbles backwards. "What in the name of my great aunt Arcee?!" He draw's his blaster pistol."WHOA! Easy Rodent. I just got that." You come out of hiding to stop him. Can't have him blasting your new toy before you get to have your fun with it. "Nightracer? What-" He looks at you and turns to the drone and back to you. "When did you get this hunk of junk?" "Junk? Rhinox built that for me for reconnaissance and other purposes that I've yet to determine.""And you just, decided to spy on a rat?"You shrug as you call back the drone. "Why not? Not like your busy." You move in closer with a smirk. "What do you say? Wanna be my Guinea-trap?"Rattrap takes a setback, blocked by his own chair nearly causing him to fall backwards. "What? No way." He waves his hands in front of him, but stops as a though enters his head. "Unless your in the mood of startling the pussy cat....or maybe choppa face."Oh, does someone want in on your bully.....ahem field testing? An intersting idea.>Hmm, why not sound fun>Cheetor maybe, not Dinobot. >Dinobot could lighten up, and what better way then with a little joke>Nah, I found my prey. (Wink and shock rattrap)>Write in
>>2180702>>Hmm, why not sound fun>>Cheetor maybe, not Dinobot.He might not give us rides later if we do.
Alright give me another stealth check1d100
Rolled 9 (1d100)>>2180752Of course when I decide to show up everyone leaves.
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>2180752nothing too mean which the kid can't handle.
Rolled 5 (1d100)Hmm lets see how the kid handles it, and if you'll need to do damage controlyou've passed the stealth check
>>2180783yea.....Gonna have to make another vote in a sec; just need to create some options here
Ok how does Nightracer want to negate that damage control>Friendly manner, the kid will be fine>Joking manner, who doesnt enjoy a little prank>Flirty, remind him why he's wrapped around your finger>Bully, remind him why he does what you tell him
>>2180792>>Joking manner, who doesnt enjoy a little prank
alright with a joking manner, i'll give you guys a +101d100+10Roll well folks
Rolled 67 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>2180885
alright writing. last one for the night. We'll probably run again tomorrow, barring any last min shenanigans
Rolled 31 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>2180885
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>2180885
>Hmm, why not sound fun>Cheetor maybe, not Dinobot.You can't resist a chance to mess with your fellow bots. "Hmm, why not? Its sounds like fun." You take back out your drone. "Know where he's at?"Rattrap smiles. "Last I remember, he was crashing in his room."The two of you nod and make your way towards the barracks. Keeping your movements quiet to not give away your intentions. Reaching up to Cheetors door, Rattrap puts his arm across. "Ahem, let the professional handle this." You just give him a look, that says 'go right ahead hot shot'. While you'd normally slag the rodent for such a brazen maneuver, you didnt want to blow this. Next time. Rattrap slips past you and starts to by pass the doors lock. "Heh, piece of cake." Hmph, he's good with his hand, you'll give him that much. Still, rat needs to be taken down a peg. Later, though. Business first, then pleasure. Note to self, sharpen talons."Deploying drone." you send in your small drone inside the room. Its fairly decorated, a few models of the Axalon, the solar system and cybertron; an old cybertronian posters, a gold trophy and a photograph of the kid with Optimus. Oh and whats this? A picture of you stashed away, next to the one of him and Optimus. As you further inspect the inside the dimly lit room, you see your lil' kitten, all curled up and completely defenseless. You'd almost feel guilty, but with a though those circuits can be turned off. And...good to go. You move the drone close by the unwitting cat, hovering by his tail. It instinctively tries to bat it away. Your and Rattraps do your best to muffle your laughter as you see the kid fidget in his sleep. The drone flies up closer to his face, hovering quietly; you move it just within inches of his whiskers. His face twitches at the movement. You make repeated movements like this as he continues to curl up, subconsciously trying to avoid the nuisance. Finally he cant resist much longer and his tail bats at your drone, hard enough to trigger its energon stun feature."Wahh!" Cheetor pops up immediately, crashing off the bed, knocking over a few of his items as well as your drone. The kid's fur is poofed up like if he stuck his tail in the a energy conduit.Rattrap is rolling on the floor laughing as you head inside the room. "Oh man! You didnt tell me it could do that!""Hey kid, you alright?" you lean down to give him a hand up."What in the cosmos was that?!""Wakey wakey pussy cat!" Rattrap laughs from outside of the room. You sheepishly look at him, you're doing your best not to bruise the kids ego with his fur shot out in every direction. "Well that would be my new toy. Shocking huh?"Cheetor, head still spinning, "Ow. Really?"Rattrap chimes in. "Yea, that was...pretty weak. Stick to what your good at, Hooters."You do the full owl head turn and stare daggers at the mouse. He recoils a bit. "Fine fine."(cont.)
(cont.)"Look Cheetor, it was just a bit of joking around. Not like the usual joking but I meant no harm.""Could've fooled me. That thing smarts." He continues to shake off the cobwebs.You again do a full owl head turn, knowing full well Rattrap is about to say something, and once you do his open mouth closes again. He takes that as his cue to back away out of the door frame. >Offer to help him with his room>Now that he's out of ear shot, blame Rattrap and promise revenge>"So...I dont recall posing for that picture you got there...">Keep up the joking, ask him to give as good as he got (roll required to encourage him to prank back; also roll required so he doesnt misread your meaning)>Give him head pats and a kiss on the cheek "All forgiven?">Write in[that'll be all for tonight, may have to postpone till friday but will run thurs time permitting.]
>>2181112>>Offer to help him with his roomThen during the tidy.>"So...I dont recall posing for that picture you got there..."
>>2181125Support, give him a quick pat to smooth his fur a bit.
Rolled 323049 (1d1000000)>>2181125>>2181181I like thisroling to see how screwed the rat is
>>2181112>Offer to help him with his room"I am sorry Kitty...">"So...I dont recall posing for that picture you got there..."Instead just hand it too him along with our pinky finger "Still friends? Pout slightly
so is this quest Dead?
>>2186228Nah, probably just new years haitusing.
>>2186228Nah, was supposed to run last night but plans changed and didn’t get home till way later than I had expected/hoped. We will be running today in about 2 hrs
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>2187672rolling to see how excited I am
>>2188281kinda, I guess
>Offer to help him with his room>"So...I dont recall posing for that picture you got there..."You help the kid up, attempting to help pat and smooth down his fur as he gets up. There's no resisting chuckling at the ridculious sight of cheetor's puffed up hair. "Again sorry about that. It wasn't supposed to shock you, just buzz around you a bit.""Where'd you even get something like that?" Cheetor transforms into his robot mode as he starts looking around at his knocked over stuff.You shrug. "Rhinox. A bit of compension for the scanning.""It'll be easier if the two of us work together straightening things up." You say as you put one of his planet models back on the shelf. "Oh...right." He rubs the back of his head. The two of you start gettin the kid's room into shape, when you look over and notice the picture of you on the ground in the corner."So...I dont recall posing for this one..."Cheetor freezes in place and sheepishly laughs. "Um...hehe. Oh so you saw that? Um...""Its not a bad angle." You turn to look over your shoulder. "Just ask next time. Never know, might say yes next time.""R-r-right."It doesn't take to long to get things settled and once things are put away, the two of you let out a sigh of relief.>Well since Cheetor is up, ask if he wants to assist you testing your drone>Apologize one last time and do something else>Hang out with Cheetor >Write in
>>2188341>Apologize one last time and do something else>Hang out with Cheetor we may bully people from time to time but, we do have everyone's best interest at heart
>Apologize one last time and do something else>Hang out with Cheetor"Again, sorry for the mistake. It wasnt my intent to use my drone like that." Honestly your a bit surprised that it had the energy to preform a shock, since its supposed to take in the access energon your body absorbs."It's fine, Nightracer. I guess I can kind of see the humor in it." Cheetor seems to be apprehensive about the whole think but willing to sweep it under the rug, so you figure this would be an opportunity to spend time with the kid."So then, since you're awake now," You crack a smile. "Whadda say we go do something instead of staying cooped up this stuffy ship?""Um, Sure I guess. Not a huge fan of the cold though." He shudders. "What did you have in mind?">Go out and do a patrol>Your feeling lucky; go huntin' for some Preds>There has to be some where on the planet that's not as cold>Airazor mentioned a while ago about having found a location for the Listening post>On second thought, we could spend sometime at the base (suggestions welcome)>Write in
>>2188539>>Airazor mentioned a while ago about having found a location for the Listening posthopefully it is somewhere warm...
alright writing.Hmm kinda quiet today
>>2188620its just a bit late and people are probably unaware this is actually happening
>>2188624well i did post that i was running. Plus i think some folks are celebrating the holiday early. i can hear fireworks going off locally.
>>2188539>>Airazor mentioned a while ago about having found a location for the Listening post
>>2188640well I guess we could just keep going until we find a stopping point
>>2188649I was thinking that, might do a few more post and resume on monday (since i figure most folks will be out Sun night)
>Airazor mentioned a while ago about having found a location for the listening post"Well I recall our other resident avain mentioning something about locations for that listening post...""Oh? Well sure I guess." Cheetor transforms back into beast mode, his fur now more recovered. "I think she's still at the base or she might have taken off for a patrol."You try the easiest way of finding out. "Nightracer to Airazor, come in. You busy?""Hey there, Nightracer. I'm not doing anything. Whats up?""Kitten and I are going to be going out. looking to beat the cold. Wanna join us?"Cheetor tilts his head looking at you, "Kitten?""Shush, girl talk." You wave your hand dismissively with a wink and a smile."Well, I guess but..." Airazor continues."Didnt you mention something about those listening post locations last time? Where were they exactly?""Oh! Yes, the listening post. Well there were the two spots. One's in the gesyer waste just on the fringe of the Predacon's base. I'm certain its warm there, but we'll be pretty close to Predacon territory. Might run into some trouble.""What about the other location?""The second one was closer but still aways. The forest territory, south of that Predacon tunnel you guys found. Might still be snowing around there though. For better or worse."Hmm, tough call. >Wastelands, out of the cold, but into the fire so to speak>Forest area, might be round for the others>Maybe we should try another location (Listening device will be less effective)>write in
>>2188710>wastelandsout of the cold, and if we are stealthy (which we are) we can just avoid detection.
>>2188710>>Wastelands, out of the cold, but into the fire so to speak
>>2188710>>Wastelands, out of the cold, but into the fire so to speakThere's three of us going, at least we can watch everyone's backs; and we're three robots with fast beast-modes so we should always be able to tail it out of there as long as nobody gets blindsided.
>Wastelands, out of the cold, but into the fire so to speak"Lets get out of this cold and hit up the wastelands." You say with a nod."Sounds good. I'll be sure to tell Optimus." Airazor says. "You flyers might not have too much difficulty heading up there, but i'll probably be a bit delayed. With the snow and everything." Cheetor pipes up. "If the Preds are out and about, it might be smarter to move as a group. Of course, that means the mission could go longer than expected.""I'm sure i'll be fine. We're three of the fastest bots, so we should be able to get in and out with no one the wiser.""I...guess that makes sense. Ok then. Lead the way." The two of you head towards the command center to the elevator to meet up with Airazor. A moment passes when she finally arrives with Optimus. He hands her a device as they approach. "I must admit, this was a bit of a surprise decision from you three. Take care out there."Airazor, puts the device away and joins you three. "Lets hit the wind!">Move as a group>You and Airazor take point, have Cheetor bring up the rear>Spread out but stay in communications range of each other; triangle formation>Send out your drone to scout ahead; will slow you down a bit having to dual navigate yourself and the drone>Write in

>>2199695Sadly this thread is. Due to plans i have for this weekend, i'll be unable to update. We'll be picking things on the usual schedule of Weds. starting on the 10th.
