Beast Wars QuestArchives: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Beast%20Wars%20QuestCharacter info pastebin: https://pastebin.com/fqsyvZJwTwitter: https://twitter.com/BeastWarsQuestDiscord: https://discord.gg/3K6RMDeGeneral 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 QuestA trio of Maximals head off into the Predacon territory, plant a listening device and make a discovery.....
You lie on your bed in your quarters, resting from the last few days. Outside of the mission into the Predacon's territory you had done a few routine patrols, a stint or two on monitor duty, but little else. The weather has finally cleared up that the others have been able to pick up more of the patrols, allowing you time to kick back and enjoy some off duty time.While having ample R & R time is there anything you wish to have accomplished during this time? (vote for only 1)>Build myself up (possibly raise on of your character stats)>Target practice (improve your shooting; small to medium bonus)>Work with one of my fellow maximals (possible bonus perk)>Enjoyed my time off (larger internal energon supply - good for a mission/thread)>Write in

need a tie breaker
i'll give it 5 mins and if no new vote, i'll roll for it
Rolled 1 (1d2)alright rolling and writing>Time off>Workin with Rhinox
>Enjoyed my time off (larger internal energon supply - good for a mission/thread)You spent most of your time just kicking back lounging around the Axalon. Whether it be hot oil baths after a patrolling in the cold winds or enjoying sometime with your fellow off duty Maximals in the lounge, you didnt feel like over exerting yourself. This has allowed you to max out your energon levels, ensuring you and your drone are ready to go. And due to your superstructure's 'enhanced' design, you're able to store a surplus of energon. Yup things have been nice. *KLAXON BLARING*"Heads up, Maximals! Everyone report to the command center on the double." You hear Optimus call out over the ship wide intercom. Well so much for the peace and quiet. You roll out of your bed 'nest' and walk out the door. Your fellow maximals are making a bee line straight to towards the command deck. Will you head there immediately, take your time, or hit up the armory first?>Orders are orders (head straight to the Command deck)>Take your time, no need to rush yourself>Hit up the armory, if its an emergency, better come prepared.>Write in
>>2243070>>Orders are orders (head straight to the Command deck)
>Orders are orders (head straight to the Command Deck)"Nightracer, Maximize." you transform into robot mode and head down the hall way with the rest of your fellow bots. You catch up to Rattrap and Dinobot who are following Cheetor who's flying around the corners. "Hey any idea what this is about?" You ask as you come along side Rattrap."Heh, beats me! Chopper face and i were in the middle of a game of cards when the call came in.""Hrrrr, consider yourself fortunate vermin!""Hey! For the last time I wasn't cheating, I swear." "Whoa, you guys were gambling and didnt invite me?!" you say. Rattrap shrugs, "Didn't know you'd be interested."Dinobot scoffs. "More like you didnt want to risk losing more of your credits mouse or get caught cheating by the two of us."The two of them go on like that until you all reach the command center."Looks like everyone's hear Optimus." Rhinox says."I'm still trying to raise Tigatron, just in case they head north!" Airazor adds. She's sitting at the console next to Rhinox.Optimus turns his head to you and the others. "Heads up Maximals. We've got a situation.""Well don't keep us in suspense." Rattrap says."Two stasis pods are entering planet fall. At the same time!" Rhinox says over his shoulder. You and the other bots look over each other. Optimus continues. "Trying to secure one stasis pod is tough enough as it is, but with two stasis pods...""We and the Predacons will be stretched thin." Dinobot answers."This is going to be difficult. Rhinox is trying to calculate their trajectory but depending on where they land, we'll need to compose the most optimal teams to reach each pod."Dinobot crosses his arms. "While I cant speak for everyone else, it might be safer to focus our efforts on one pod than trying to get both.""Those are my crewmen out there. I'm not giving Megatron the opportunity to turn them against us."It seems like Optimus and Dinobot are proposing different strategies. While the others havent said anything, you believe they will probably side with Optimus Primal on this. >Back up Optimus, two maximals will dramatically turn the tide>Back up Dinobot, securing one is better than losing two>Suggest another plan (write in)
>>2243218>Back up Dinobot, securing one is better than losing two
>>2243218>>Back up Optimus, two maximals will dramatically turn the tide The location they descend toward will still effect the types of mission we launch and how many we send, but we should at least keep the chance of a double recovery.
>>2243218"I have an idea Prime, send the Majority of our forces to secure one pod, me and Rattrap are infiltrators, we move fast and if there is one thing we can do is hold things up. Me and Rattrap will head to one and if we make good time will arrive there before the Preds giving time to set up a trap or at least hold them off. Between a Sniper and a Demolition Specialist we should give them quite the welcome. Meanwhile the rest of you secure the other while we hold back anything that comes out way. You can then come down and back us up."

>Backu up Optimus>Write in"Optimus has the right idea, Dinobot. While its best for us to know where the pods are landing, we should try to rescue both stasis pods." Dinobot just gives a low growl, as you turn back to Optimus."That said, I believe it'll be best if we split into two groups. Send a main force to one of the pods while Rattrap and I secure the other.""Whoa whoa whoa, sister. What are you volunteering me for?! You want to run after a pod with a playmate against a squad of Preds and get yourselves scrapped, take someone else like the pussy cat."Atleast three or four Maximals, including yourself in unison. "Shut up, Rattrap."Optimus looks back at you. "Its a risky plan. While I believe the two of you could do it, if Megatron or a large force is sent after the pod we send you two, it could be dangerous for both you and the pod.""Well its nice to see someone here with sense." Rattrap says, crossing his arms and nodding towards you with that smug smile."That said," Optimus continues. "I'll approve your mission but you'll take one more Maximal with you.""What!?" Rattrap's smile disappears. As you give him a smug smile back. "Oh geez....we're all gonna die.""Alright, with that settled," Optimus moves back over towards Rhinox. "Any luck on the locations of those pods?""Best estimates for each of them are...." Rhinox brings up a large map. It shows the two lines moving in far off directions. One will be landing towards the swampland, while neutral ground its close towards the Predacon base. The second one is also in neutral ground but it favors you and the Maximals. Its in the artic regions, further west from where you originally landed but Tigatron patrols those regions.

>>2243572>Lets meet up with Tigatron in the north.Relax Rattrap, two of us will be in our element and you know as well as I Snow+Explosions=Avalanches, that'd be fun huh?
Let's do this
>Lets meet up with Tigatron in the north."Leave the northern stasis pod to Rattrap and I. We'll meet up with Tigatron and secure that pod."Optimus looks at you with a genuine look of surprise. "Sounds like a plan.""Um hello?! Don't I get a say about any of this?" Rattrap waves his hands in the air. "Aw come on, RT. Snow plus explosions equal avalanches. That'd be fun, right?""Oh sure! You, me and Tigatron the Barbarian will have all sorts of fun digging ourselves out from under them." He snaps back. "It'll be fine." Airazor cuts in. "Well if he doesn't want to go, I ca..."Optimus cuts her off. "Sorry Airazor, but we cant send both our fliers to one pod. We'll need you to help secure the second pod.""Oh. Well that makes sense." She hangs her shoulders a bit, "Well just take care you two. Tigatron will be waiting for you two before heading too deep into the tundra.""Well then fine!" Rattrap says shaking his head. "C'mon we'll need to hit up the armory for some extra charges if we are gonna make snowbots out of Preds."He gestures towards the back. >What gear we have on us is more than enough. Lets head out>Alright lets load up (head to the armory)>Well if Airazor really wants to go play with her cat toy....(switch missions with Airazor)>If Rattrap is too yellow for this....(swap Rattrap for another Maximal)>Write in

>>2243861Well you already have a sniper rifle so on that front you'll be fine
>Alright lets load up (head to the armory)"I'll be right there." You say to Rattrap as he heads down. You walk up to Airazor who's working on the console. She turns to you."Good luck out there and stay safe." She breaks eye contact for a moment. "All of you."You smile mischievously. "Dont you worry." You move in close causing her to tense up. "I'll be sure to take care of your cat toy." Her mouth drops for a moment, as if to try and process the meaning behind your worlds. You give her a smile and a wink, when your radio cracks. "Hey Hooters are you coming?!""JUSTASLAGINGNANOSECOND!" you say. Everyone turns towards you a bit shocked. You meekly chuckle. "Oh that rat. What can you do?" You shrug, but then hear Dinobot under his breathe. "Hang him from his tail over a running lava flow for starters." You do your best to stifle your laughter as you excuse yourself as you hasten your way towards the armory.You catch Rattrap loading up already along the armory wall."Bout time. You two birds done ruffling your feathers together?""What are you talking about?" You cock an eyebrow at the rodent."Well, from what the kid was saying...." he grabs a hot marker, flipping it in the air and catching it in his arm compartment. "And I'm paraphrasing, you've been looking for someone to share a nest and roost." ...Oh. You decide to play it cool. "Oh? Well from where I was standing, seems like the kid might have a thing for birds.""Heh, gee I wonder where he got that from?" He gives you a look."Someone with impeccable taste, i would say." You look around and find a small white drape with a thin layer of dust on it. You throw it on Rattrap. "Tigatron and I will be fine but you're gonna need that.""Impeccable taste....sheesh." Once he's done grabbing a few charges and hot markers, folds up the drape and stores it behind him. "You're one crazy broad." "So did you have a little talk with the kid then? Hmm? Have to answer some questions that you wouldnt remember the answer to since you were his age?""Whoa! Time out! I'm nowhere near as hopeless as the kid is in that regard.""Whatever helps you garbage eater.""Oh, by the way Hooters." He says with a bit of a grin as he transforms back into beast mode. "Not sure if you figured it out or now, but I'm not fast enough to keep up with you all the way up there.""Not surprised. We should have Rhinox build you a large ball for you to travel in.""Cute," He lays on the attitude. "What I'm saying is, that you'll need to carry me in order for us to get to the pod fast enough."He's joking.>Ugh Fine (carry him on your back)>Fine whatever (carry him in your talons)>Yea, no. (refuse to carry him)>Write in
>>2243952>>Fine whatever (carry him in your talons)
>>2243952>Fine whatever (carry him in your talons)You do realize this was my plan from the start right? Oh and despite Dinobot's suggestion i wont hold you by your tail
>>2243978>>2243978I love this
>Fine whatever (carry him in your talons)"Fine whatever. I'll carry you." You say slightly disgusted. "Hey! I'm not that heavy.""Oh and for some reassurance, despite Dinobot's suggestion I wont hold you by your tail.""What!"The two of you head out of the armory and back towards the Command deck. You see Cheetor, Airazor and Dinobot together on the platform lift. Cheetor waves with a bit of enthusiasm while Airazor gives a more subdued wave. Dinobot expectantly has his arms crossed and gives a simple nod."Rhinox and I will remain here on alert in case either side runs into trouble and needs back up." Optimus says. "Roger that." You say."Oh nice to see you saved the easy job for yourself." Rattrap counters. Optimus sighs and shakes his head.The top roof hatch opens up."You guys are clear to go. Tigatron will be waiting but he'll move out soon to make sure he reaches and secures the pod first." Rhinox nods."Well lets go." You start flapping your wings and grab on to Rattraps shoulders. "Hey hold on...waaaaaaah!"You take to the skies and start flying towards the north arctic. You're making decent time but you find yourself moving slower than you'd expect. Rattrap squirms here and there, but overall carrying him is not too much of a burden upon your travels. Strangely enough, having a mouse in your talons feels oddly natural. "Hey how much longer. This isnt exactly flying first class in my book.""Will you be quiet. If there were any Predacons around we'd be prime targets." "All the more reason for you to move it.""I'm beginning to reevaluate my stance on dropping you." You say as you look down at Rattrap in your talons."Hey hey hey!""Quit squirming!" you say. "You want to fall?!"Rattrap fidgits abit more before finally calming down."Can we just move it along? Or alteast land for a bit.">Land and let him walk a bit (will slow down your progress, but allow you to rest a bit)>Use some of your energon stores to boost your strength and speed.>Bully Rattrap by pretending to let him go>Write in
>>2244150>Use some of your energon stores to boost your strength and speed.Ok there is about to be some turbulence but i'll get us there faster so you don't have to deal with it too long.Speed is key here, more time to get there and set up or maybe get to the pod first

>Use some of your energon stores to boost your strength and speed."Just hang on for a bit. I'm gonna try to push it." You start tapping into your energon reserves and push your limiters into overdrive. You tighten your grip on Rattrap without applying too much pressure to ensure you hang on to him. "Whoa, whoa, heeeeeeeeeeey""Keep your mouth shut, you'll create drag." You say"Are you nuts?!" "Owls are naturally superb at carrying rodents in flight," you smile as you swoop lower, just above the tree line on the hill side as you approach the edge of the tundra. "Though it's a journey few make twice.""If those rodent's were flying with you, I can see why." You feel Rattrap's small hands gripping on to your legs. "Why oh why couldnt I have gone with Airazor?!""Heh, like she wouldnt do the same." "She wouldnt! She's sane!""Oh? Whats that, I cant hear you."

>Scan the region; see if you can see the trail of the stasis pod>Try reaching Tigatron on commsYou take a moment to scan the sky. Enhancing your vision, you look to see if you can find any traces of the incoming pod. Looking....looking.....still look-oh geez thats a bright sun! You get an eye full of the sun in your eyes causing you to rock back and forth. "Whoa, hey whats going on?!" Rattrap starts digging his nails into your legs as you shake your whole body along with your head."Ugh, just a hang on a minute. Got an eye full of daylight." You squint in pain. "Ohno!" "Just be my eyes for me for a second.""Left! Left!"You bank left, trying to keep with the rodents words. "There! Straighten up. Its not too far off and getting closer to land."Opening your eyes, you do your best to focus on the sky as opposed to the sunlight reflecting snow. Well look at that the rodent caught it. Not bad for a mouse."Bossbird to BigCat. Come in."You hear a bit of static for a brief moment."Bossbird?" you can hear the sarcasm dripping off his words."You know it, mouse.""This is Tigatron. Is that you Nightracer?""Yup, Rattrap and I have eyes on the pod. Falling in Grid Altus. ""Copy that. I'm not too far from there. Keep an eye out though. Predacons are bound to be closing in.""Copy that. Bossbird out."You catch Rattrap out of the corner of your eye shaking his head."What?""Oh, nothing! Fearless leader." He mock salutes. "Though personally I prefer Hootits.""You know, I promised not to drop you in lava. I never said anything about ice cold water.""Shutting up.""Good boy.">Beeline for the pod!

>Split up, drop off Rattrap close towards the pod to set up traps in case of Predacons"Ok listen up Rattrap. I've got an idea." "Oh geez.""Just shaddup and listen." You look down at him. His eyes still strike you as trembling. "I'm gonna take us in a bit closer but I'm gonna drop you off first so you can set up traps.""Thats...not a bad idea. Aside from the fact I'll be on my own.""Your a spy aren't you?""A spy who opperates in urban areas. You think I would be caught dead out here volunteerly?!"You pause for a moment as you contemplate the possiblity."Hey, hey! Shut up!" He just shakes his head. "Just give me a heads up when we're about to land."You proceed to get closer towards the pod. Judging from the plume of snow, the pods landed. "Tigatron to Nightracer.""...bossbird..." you whisper under your breathe."Repeat that?" you hear the tiger question."Nothing. Nightracer here.""I'm closing in on the pod. No sign of Predacon's yet.""Good. Rattrap and I are almost there." You suddenly feel a pull on your legs."Hoooo No. I think there's something headed this way far back." Your head spins back to look with your telescopic vision. Looks to be fliers, three of them. Hmm. "Well if we're gonna do this plan of yours, you might want to lower me here. But I'm not sure how good the ol' hot spot trick will work against them."True enough there's only a few minor snow banks. Nothing major for Rattrap to utilies as concealed cover. He does have his gun and he might be able to slow him down, but not well. Tigatron is nearby, you can always ask him to back up Rattrap and he has superior fire power than either than you. Well unless there's a solid sniping position, then both bots are under your feet. Then again, with enough heat marks in one spot, it might fool the Preds into flying close to the demo charges.What should you do?>Drop off Rattrap and back him up; Tigatron will reach the pod>Drop off Rattrap and have Tigatron back him up; You'll handle the pod>Drop off Rattrap and have him run to the pod while you and Tigatron cover him>write in

ok so now we have some late votes for handling the pod. while i didnt call an end to the previous vote, i did start up a new vote. So are folks willing to submit to a DM 1d2 roll?1. Hooters snipes, Tiger handles pod2. Hooters handles pod, tiger/rat fight

>>2244615Looks like i'm gonna have to start planning this soon
>Drop off Rattrap and back him up; Tigatron will reach the pod>Land RattrapYou begin lowering yourself to the ground with the rat. "Tigatron, focus on the pod! We've got company! We'll hold them off.""Copy that. Good hunting! We'll join you soon enough. Just save some for us."You slow yourself down and once Ratttrap's got his feet on the ground, he lets go of your legs. Releasing him from your talons..."Nightracer, Maximize!""Rattrap, Maximize!"You quick draw your sniper rifle and look around for one of the larger snow banks. "Rattrap, start setting up, I'll keep an eye out.""You got it. Just try not to get us slagged.""Don't worry rodent." You lie down on the ground, activating your tactical cameo. "You'd never see me coming.""Ah geez." you hear the rat mutter. Focusing on the your scope, on can only hear his feet crunching the snow on the ground. Its a bit distracting but you tune him out as he works. Staring at the horizon, you see the three Predacon fliers: Waspinator, Inferno and Terrorsaur.You feel a bit bad at having to prevent Waspinator from grabbing the stasis pod, but you have no love for the other two. So it looks like you'll be bettin' on red. The Predacon's are still a bit out of range, it seems though that Inferno might be approaching his limit though. Good thing for you, you've still got a bit of that extra energon stored allowing you to fight a bit longer. You sit back and maintain aim. But on who?>Take a wide pot shot at Waspinator, not to hit but to maybe scare him off>Aim for the ant; he's strong and nuts even if he's approaching his limit>Aim for Terrorsaur.

mmmk writing. gonna have to be the last one for the night. will run tomorrow.
Take the time to blow his head off, it'll be well worth it. The drone is flying in a nice straight line at the moment so the perfect shot. They will have no choice but to land
>Aim for Terrorsaur. He must really hate your guts.You sit back waiting till they are range of your sniper rifle; accounting for all the variables. While blasting Inferno would make sense, but it would be the smarter play to take out Terrorsaur first. You really have to wonder how pissed off he's got to be getting at you nearly scrapping him every time you've encountered him. Oh well.You pull the trigger and fire.A few moments pass as you look down the range. The detonation of your shot send the lizard spiraling and the others are now aware that you guys are here. You see the fire ant landing and transform. His movements along the ground are more of a serpentine instead of charging ahead. It'll make hitting him harder, esp with the random bumps in the snow, but with him along the ground, he'll probably hit some of Rattraps charges.You also take notice that Terrorsaur isn't down but he's adjusting his flight path as well, if the trail of smoke emanating from him. Waspinator as well seems to be doing the same. Though you notice he's picked up speed by the looks of it. Well slag. It seems like after all this time, they're learning to try and counter your tactics. Not that its a complicated tactic and there's not much cover and concealment for you to take advantage.

And that'll be it for me tonight. Thanks for coming out guys and hope to catch you tomorrow night here on Beast Wars Quest!
>>2244708>Relocate your position. A new shot from a slightly different angle might throw them offFire from where one of Rattraps explosive rigged heat decoys are located so that when we re-position they will walk into a trap.>Take another shot against Terrorsaur, he's moving a bit more randomly to prevent you from getting a clean shotBetter to finish one, Our new position will bait Inferno into the explosive trap
>>2244716This, but from behind one of the decoys, not exactly where it is. We don't actually want to stand on and detonate the trap ourself.
>>2244716Like this idea
>>2244731that is the idea
>>2244716Support, We can use the drone on Waspinator, distract him while our drone sneaks up on him and ZAAP!

>Relocate your position. A new shot from a slightly different angle might throw them off>Take another shot against Terrorsaur, he's moving a bit more randomly to prevent you from getting a clean shotYou reactivate your tactical cloak to fall back and take up a new position. With the Predacons changing their tactics, its only smart for you to do the same and with Rattrap's demo charges. Moving back, inspiration hits you. You can prevent any legitimate damage happening to Waspinator if you can distract him with your drone. Deploying it might give you away but it'll allow you to handle your bug-eyed 'friend' while handling the others."Go get'em bullybird." You send out your drone, having it fly low to the ground to keep it from being shot easily.While it darts towards the bug, you set your sights on Terrorsaur again. He's still trying to move erratically to keep you guessing but his smoke trail makes it easier to track him. You pull the trigger....A few nanoclicks pass and all you hear is the *squak* as you watch him starting to crash towards the ground. "Too easy lizard lips."You zoom in with your scope again, and notice that ant is picking up pace. He's still too far to pick up exactly what he's saying but you can clearly hear his crazed yelling. Pyro bug is closing in.>Take a few shots at Inferno. Soften him up for the charges.>Switch to Tigatron perspective as he reaches the pod.>Switch to drone view, as it closes in on Waspinator>Write in
>>2247210>>Switch to Tigatron perspective as he reaches the pod.
>>2247210>>Take a few shots at Inferno. Soften him up for the charges.Rattrap's around, I'm sure he's going have a bugs bunny moment where he takes out Waspy and gets a few more pieces if we leave him be.

alright writing >>2247315oh dear...
>Take a few shots at Inferno. Soften him up for the charges.Figuring a dual wielding flame-throwing lunatic would be trouble, it's probably a good idea to dispatch him quickly. Confident in your skills despite the ant's tenacity, this should be an easy enough shot. Taking aim with your rifle, you pull the trigger...*zzzzshoooom*That's.....not a good sound....You look at you're rifle. Quazar jam. Of all the....Well. This is awkward. You attempt to clear the jam, hopefully before the ant can close the gap."Hey! Everything ok over there?" You hear Rattrap calls out from his dune."Gun's jammed. Care to cover me while I work this out?""Did you try working the shaft?" He laughs abit. "Maybe you need to lube it up a bit more?""Shut it, rodent...""You didnt strike me as the type to shy away from performance issues..."You turn to face him, puffing up your feathers. "WHOOOOOOOOO!""Agh! Alright, alright." Rattrap scootches a bit away from you. "Sheesh!" He pulls out his blaster to prepare to supply cover fire. He takes out his remote detonator. "Just in case we need a distraction when we need to run."Well atleast that covers that base, but you need to figure out what you're gonna do. Both Preds are getting closing in and they'll actively engaging the two of you. >Fall back to the pod. >Have the drone stun Waspinator before he gets any closer>Focus on unjamming your rifle; if successful you might be able to get another shot off>"Hey Big cat, wanna join us up here?

>Focus on unjamming your rifle; if succussful you might be able to get another shot off>Have the drone stun Waspinator before he gets any closerYou calm yourself as you work on your gun. Its like repetition, like when you have to clean your gun. Don't over think it, just do it you think to yourself. You work on getting the jam cleared to prevent any major damage to the weapon. You pull back for a manual release and you hear the sound you were hoping for. Success! You'll have to swap out power packs but you can get a shot off if you need.In the meantime, you decide to check in on your little drone."On visual." You activate the drones link up camera. You see it approaching Waspinator head on. You cant get a read on audio, but you can clearly see Waspinator stopping in his tracks as he looks it over clearly confused."Sorry buddy but i gotta keep you out of this fight. The others might take shots at you."You give the drone its instructions to activate its stun blast. You see a massive energon wave errupt, followed by a bit of static. The large green and yellow wasp spinning out around out of control as his stripped stinger swings around and smacks the drone. The camera starts to spin around in every which way. You deactivate the link up and look over the snow dune to see your little drone and little bug friend crashing into the snow."Aw man, I think its broken." You lament out loud."What?" Rattrap ask. "My drone.""Dont worry about it. M-Maybe Rhinox can put it back together." Rattrap shrugs. "Other than that, nice job on taking down Waspinator.""Well atleast my guns no longer jammed.""And not a moment too soon. Look!" You turn to see Inferno's form getting closer. "Die, Maximals! Hiiiii-YAaaaaa! Inferno, Terrorize!"Ok, ok. No time to cry over split mech fluid. You two can handle the ant. Though as you look past the ant it seems the nearly half to scrapped form of Terrorsaur transforming out of the snow. Loser just wont stay down and now it looks like he's gonna try to take to the skies. >Double team the ant with Rattrap. (No not that way)>Take another shot at Terrorsaur.

>>2247764Thanks for running Primus
>Take anther shot at Terrorsaur. Keep him down for good this time.>"Rattrap, blast the charges!"You tighten your grip on your gun, taking aim Terrorsaur as he ascends into the sky. In your peripherals, you see Inferno flying low to the ground as he rushes over, massive hand cannon in each hand. "HIIIIYAAAAAA! BUUUUUURRRRRN!" "Rattrap, blast the charges!" You yell out as you take your own shot. "Head up!" Rattrap shouts as he flicks the switch and smashes the button. You see a cascade of snow erupting infront of you. The ants form disappears in the makeshift snowstorm as you hear him screaming again. Your shot reaches its target as you knock the red lizard back down to the ground as quickly as he rose up, smacking the snow hard. That should do it for Terrorsaur. With him out of action, Waspinator down for now, you hope Inferno has taken enough damage to stay down.>Leave cover to attempt taking out Inferno.>Hold position and blast him in tandem with Rattrap adding suppression fire>Call Tigatron for a sit rep (switch perspectives)>We've done enough damage to the Preds; Fallback with Rattrap to Tigatron and the Pod and get out of here>Write in
>>2250366>>Call Tigatron for a sit rep (switch perspectives)Let's see what he's up to.
>Call Tigatron for a sit rep (switch perspectives)You've been running across the northern frost for while. The news of the falling stasis pods brought a refreshing change of pace to this quiet and peaceful land. Of course that would mean that it would bring with it conflict, which this land didnt need. One thing was certain though, you were confident that with the pod landing out this way, you could reach it in time before anyone else would. No one knew these lands better than you.And as the matrix willed it, you were right. With your fellow Maximals en route, success was assured. You have to admit, it was an interesting combo that Optimus had decided to send as reinforcements. Rattrap and Nightracer were a bit of an odd couple, particularly Nightracer. The two of you have had a turbulent kinship but things had seemed to calm down the last you saw her. From what Airazor had told you, her eccentric mannerisms have been...most troubling if not confusing. Airazor herself seemed distracted by her thoughts when you two last spoke of her. But for now, you have your own mission: save the pod and rescue the Maximal protoform inside. While shying away from a fight doesn't suit you, this was equally as important. "Tigatron, Maximize!" you transform and close in on the pod. Its embedded into a snowbank but from a quick glance, its in one piece and fully functional.>"Computer, run diagnostic" make sure everything is working fine>"Computer, begin activation sequence" Lets get this bot up and moving>The pod is fine, head over to assist Rattrap and Nightracer>Write in

>"Computer, run diagnostic" make sure everything is working fineBetter to play it safe. You access its command console."Computer, run diagnostic."ACKNOWLEDGED. BEGINNING DIAGNOSTIC....You look over the readings of the programming. So far everything seems fine. As energon readings are a bit high but well within safety parameters. The sounds of blaster fire distract you momentarily. Hmmmm, it sounds like its getting a bit closer. You worry what that might mean for your friends. The sounds of their yells seem to be telling of the battle. Deep down you can feel your instincts wanting to kick in. To join the fray. But you know you need to protect the defenseless and your fellow Maximals are far from that.*beep beep beep* *beep beep beep*DIAGNOSTIC COMPLETE.

Rolled 4 (1d5)>>2250911
Well that'll do it Writing the rest, returning to Nightracer's perspective
>Begin Activation Sequence (Random rolls from players for character creation)You duck, dive and dodge the incoming barrage of Inferno's guns as unloads from the ground at you and Rattrap. His shots are wild as he tries to evade the rapid fire assault from the rodent but you're at a disadvantage at close quarters. "Well this is a bit obnoxious." You say. "Feel free to give me a hand then.""It takes time for me to set up a decent shot and I'm not sitting still for him the light a flame up my tail feathers."Your radio cracks open. "This is Tigatron. Hold on we'll be right there."We?"Ho-Hoo! You hear that bug breathe?! Looks like you're out of luck!" Rattrap mocks Inferno with a few hand gestures. "If the royalty cannot have the protoform, then no one will!" Inferno screeches again as he spins around, firing his flame throwers in every direction. "Speed it up, kitty." You say as you duck under another jet stream of flames. "Its getting toasty out here.""Cool down, like the old man said, we'll handle this." a new voice says.Just then you see a trail of snow kick up, darting around the some of the snow dunes behind the flying Predacon. You hear to blast shots come from behind you as Tigatron shows up firing out the two flamers out of the ants hand, causing him to stop spinning. Well most of him. His tail and his head are still spinning as he screams. Once its apparent to him that he's been disarmed he finally stops spinning and screaming."You think I need a weapon to rip you piece from piece, Maximal?!" he screams."I think you should learn to pay more attention to your surroundings, Predacon. NOW!"It moves like a blur, the white fur making it nearly invisible against the snow. It isn't until you see the creature leap high into the air to make out its beast shape of an arctic hare. It transforms and he, by the looks of it, smacks Inferno with a series of flying kicks. His screeches with each kick are unsettling but his quick attacks make short work of the Predacon, who's struggling to keep up. He darts around each of Infernos swings, throwing the occasional punch, but focuses namely on his powerful legs for attacking. He finishes off Inferno, sending him flying into the air back to where he and the other Predacon fliers. Talk about an entrance.>Say hello>Bout time you guys got here>I totally had him, but since your the new guy, i guess I'll let it slide>Thanks for the save >Write inAlso our bot needs a nameSize: SmallBeast Mode: Arctic HarePrimary function: ReconnaissanceSecondary function: NinjaMale Programming

And that'll do it for me tonight. We'll be continuing and wrapping up this portion of the adventure. we'll run later in the week, from the other teams perspective. You'll get to choose which maximal (Cheetor, Airazor, Dinobot) to portray or a mix of the three if you guys want. Thanks for coming out as always.
>>2251004Thanks for running Primus
>>2250989>>Say helloYesssssss. Love the character Primus, great job on the session by the way.

>>2251005>>2251010Thanks as always. Glad you guys are enjoying the quest>>2250997It is a bit of an obvious option. Of course if you guys want i can add additional options and you can just call him 'snowball' like when you call cheetor 'kitty or kitten'
>>2251015But if thats his name, it takes away the insult, and he can own it.He seems a bit more mature and able that cheetorHes a player, he fucks like a rabbit
>>2251024hmmm that is something to consider and think upon

>>2254165no it was the previous thread that was number 8, this one was supposed to be 9
>>2219148>>2219148Its bumped off the active board now, but when this thread was made, it was still active.
>>2254224yeah I ended up waiting in the old thread for a while till I realized I had two threads with the same title, but only one was updating.....Also, anyone else been doing captcha? It seems to be letting me post without doing any of it....
>>2254233>two threads with the same titlein two different tabsnvm captcha is back, I jinxed it
Snow hares change color when it gets warm. could be a feature of his ninja powers
>>2254493That’s part of my plan
We'll be starting up soonish; just gonna be a quick one tonight. will try to start the next run tomorrow at a much earlier time
AlrightFirst things first....Naming the new Maximal>Snowball>Snowfall>Kickback>Thumper>Alpine>Snowstorm>Frostbite>Cryostrike>Coldfront
>>2255775 I vote for Kickback... I wonder if we will ever see Warpath again perhaps a slightly less flawed inconsistent version or perhaps a much more flawed inconsistent version who tries to kill us both would be equally acceptable
>>2255817I've had a few request to see Warpath again.All i'll say is that Warpath's stasis pod is up there but how he'll (or she depending on rolls) emerge maybe be different. Warpath may have a new name, a new beast mode etc depending on how either players decide to handle a stasis pod or how the dice roll if they Predacons reach him first.
>>22557751 or 6
>>2255825Warpath lands fuck knows where, begins recruiting the primative humans and turning them into a warrior cult culture. Predacons fight him cos he's actually taking their turf, Maximals trying to deal with him cos wow this is gonna be a dark timeline if mankind learns warfare from him at this early stage.He drops and IDs as a Deceptacon and views everyone with disgust
>>2256397Tezcatlipoca all up in this business
>>2256470Hmm, Warpath as the Aztec Jaguar god....
>>2256397I think Warpath would be more the sort to create his own faction name rather then nick the Decepticon ID. Carnibots or Feralcons or something.
>>2256835I meant it turns out he was a reprogrammed one but this time he aint
Gonna be starting soon
>KickbackWith the threat dealt with, Tigatron and the new Maximal gather with you and Rattrap."Way to take your time, Stripes." Rattrap says putting his gun away. "Not that I couldn't handle it or anything."You and Tigatron look at each other shaking your heads. The rabbit looks a bit confused. You take this time to introduce yourself."If Tigatron hasn't said so yet, I'm Nightracer and thats Rattrap. So, you gotta name fluffy or should we just call you...""Kickback will do. Gotta admit though, wasn't expecting such a 'exciting' welcome party.""Yea well, get used to it. Preds are notorious party crashers." Rattrap says. Tigatron continues. "Well then, Kickback, it'll probably be best for you to meet the rest of the Maximals back at the Axalon."He shrugs. "You're the boss. Personally I'd rather not stick around here if there's more chances of things blowing up. I'm not shy about fighting, just prefer to have the advantage of surprise.""Sounds like a plan." Rattrap adds, switching back to beast mode. "Frankly it dont know how you bots put up with this cold."You, Tigatron and Kickback all share a look and a shrug. "Superior construction?" you mock. "Pfft, please. If it was any colder out here we'd look half to scrap like the Preds back there."Hmmm, that reminds you. "Well I'll let you boys chit chat, I'm gonna grab my droid. Ugh, i think its broken.""If you find any," Rattrap adds, "bring me back some Waspinator parts."You transform into beast mode and fly off toward where your little 'bullybird' went down near Waspinator.>Approach with caution, just in case>Do an aerial fly by first before moving in>Dive bomb in quickly and grab your drone.>Write in
