Cz 10

Now talking in #Terranotos
Contact Zero - Mission 10: Blockade
Somehow, even the dark mists of this darkside seem refreshing right now… And with good reason. No healthier than when you entered the city, you're once again stuck in the wilds, and with little resources to boot. The whistle of the wind on the trees sounds ever slightly so omnious
[OOC] Raziel: am I awake yet?
Still, the one who missed all the excitement and had to be carried, asleep, up to now is finally awake, as the surveyor chugs along it's gentl rocking awakens Raziel
JayM: That is, is the surveyor even chugging? You hadn't had a chance to decide where to or what now, have you?
Raziel‘ sits upright, looking for the leather book
JayM: What leather book
Hauser: Definitely chugging. There’s only one way forward - out into the mists and the marsh, between the fangs of a beast that the Ilirians are to big to slip through. They'll be shredded in our wake.
Hauser: …Probably.
Raziel: "Where'd the dude with the gun go? And where the hell were you guys when I was being shot at?" Ray scowls
Fortunata: "Fightin' robots."
Raziel: "Inexcusable! What if I had been killed in whatever weird place you put me? And where'd you find that tube anyway?"
Fortunata: "…tube?"
Hauser: "Fortunata, catch him up to reality while I drive, will you?"
Raziel: "And furthestmore, where are we and how'd you get me back so fast?"
Fortunata: "Wibbly-wobbly."
Fortunata: "Anyway."
[OOC] Raziel: No, this is not timey-wimey stuff
Raziel‘ looks panicky and begins searching around for the Codex.
Fortunata: "Ilirians showed up and starting roughing house. Went down here, too."
Lynne: "Raziel, calm yourself. You’ve been unconscious for quite a while and thus unable to make observations of anybody doing anything with any tubes."
JayM: It's right there in your things. You know how you carry it in your suit? Yeah they didn't even remove that
Raziel‘ clutches the Codex tight.
Raziel: "Yeah! There was an Illirian in that place."
Raziel: "He was the dude with the gun."
Fortunata: "So we dealt with some cannon fodder and some big honking armors that ended up being a field test of the EAS."
Fortunata: "…mine really isn’t suitable for group sorties, as it seems."
Hauser: "Got us through alright."
Lynne: "Its performance was still spectacular."
Raziel‘ looks at the Codex and waves his hand over it, seeing if it has anything about the Outer Dream World.
JayM: Hrm… Nothing on it about the Outer Dreamworld
Fortunata: "Yeah, but it got beat to hell and there were some really close calls. You’re all awesome for pulling her through, though."
Hauser notices a warning on the console. A very slow download is going on, it's apparently a map
Raziel: "OMG YOU ARE DOWNLOADING MAP"
[OOC] Raziel: sorry forgot my (())s'
She notices it because of an error, saying it's data is corrupted and will attempt reconstruction
Fortunata: "…are you quite sure you're fit to be out on the field?"
Fortunata: "You seem… manic."
Hauser: "I'm sure we'd all like to be off the field right now." She frowns at the map download.
Hauser: "Lynne, tell me about our instruments. How close is pursuit?"
Soon enough an alert on a priority call pops up
[OOC] Raziel: argh… being exiled to the store for an emergency purchase…
Lynne opens her mouth to answer and immediately shuts it, opening up the call on the speakers instead.
[OOC] Raziel: Can we contact base from here?
It's a frantic-looking Raf "Everyone you need-" his image fades out, it cuts to audio only "Get bac-" getting static, the echo of some cursing "Map- Safe- Blocka-"
JayM: Hrm… Oh dear, that's interference, alright
[OOC] Raziel: sorry, gotta run for a minute be back as soon as I can
Fortunata: "Well, you heard the man, let's do a tactical u-turn."
Hauser: "Some kind of tactical turn. Alright, crew, I'm cutting all signal instruments. We're running full quiet."
JayM: Cutting instruments, running quiet- Vehicle is not QUITE capable of that, it's a repurposed drone meant to operate alone in an isolated planet it's specifically designed to not go quiet, ever, with hardware safeguards even
JayM: So you're definitely going to need a Tinkering [TN 5] check to not screw it up and still do it
[OOC] Hauser: Okay, but if I pass, I want the Ilirians to be suitably surprised!
Fortunata just grips the seat really really hard. Nervous ain't the half of it. [Post-roll only]
JayM: You will definitely get them suitably surprised (might even be able to eavesdrop on some comms, actually)
JayM: (this vehicle is quite adept at recieving signals)
Hauser rips open the instrument panel. "Lynne, there's some cables in the back - I want you to foil over our rear antenna, weld the K3-A circuit to to K3-B, and…" She thinks, then splits a red wire apart. "Get me a little radio to splice in on this."
[OOC] Hauser: Aptitude II, rolling 1d8+1 1d8+1 3d8. Reliable, too.
[OOC] Fortunata: is that my Reliable
[OOC] Lynne: sec, I got Lucky and a post roll too-
[OOC] Hauser: Nope, so we have two reliables, hot. And a Lucky throws on another 1d8.
[OOC] Hauser: Rolling 2#1d8+1 4d8. Are we good to go?
[OOC] Hauser: Looks like it!!
Hauser rolled 2#1d8+1(1) and got 2 ( Total: 3.0 ) **
Lynne follows Hauser's order precisely, adding one step of her own - Punching a random part that's sticking out to make it run quieter.
Also rolled 2#1d8+1(2) and got 4 [Total: 5.0 (Low), Avg: 4.00]
Also rolled 4d8 and got 3, 1, 4, 7 [Total: 15 (Low), Avg: 3.75]

[OOC] Hauser: 2 hits. Lynne, what's your postroll?
[OOC] Lynne: Do over
[OOC] Hauser: Hmm… well, let's see what our Reliables can get us, first.
[OOC] Hauser: Mind if I blow yours too, Fort?
Fortunata kicks out at something bad-temperedly. [Reliable go go]
[OOC] Hauser: Wait, we need 3 hits, not five. Silly me.
Hauser rolled 1d10+1 and got 7 ( Total: 8.0 ) for here's yours, Fort
Hauser turns back at the puff of smoke from Fort's kick. "And that should do us."
With a little bit of hard electronics you get the surveyor to run silent. It was tough working around that, but it works. As a result the mufflers ended up a little bit misaligned causing a little bit of a bumpy ride but everything's silent now
As you roll you hear a little bit of chatter over the small radio, it's in Ilirian, that's not quite in your translation system's database, but Hauser has passable knowldge "Teams 8 to 21 in place"
Radio: "Understood, the agent just reported, they're at point 72K1… We've lost their signal"
Radio: "Just in from HQ, they've moving towards K2, agent's still got them pinned. Move in the maviel in route, close in on L formation"
JayM: A general acknowledgement
Lynne looks around nervously, holding one of the modifications together with both hands…
Hauser briefly considers angles of approach. If they don't have a visual, and they're moving in an L formation - "They're coming in for us. Let's force them to stoop and see if they hit their heads."
Fortunata: "Hehee."
Hauser sidewinds sharply, doubling back a little bit, heading down through shaky ground, deeper into the marsh - underneath thick roots overhead, moving for one of their weaker lines to try and break through on speed and surprise.
Full speed ahead, you start hearing a bit more chatter "Target speeding, attempting escape, move the scout units ahead!" how'd they notice you? Still, you have the decision-making upper hand, and speed on ahead
JayM: Still, a few of their faster units catch up- They're ground interceptor vehicles, no wheels, hovering over the ground, open-air-
JayM: But you can't stop if you plan to get out of here alive
JayM: Begin
JayM: Danmaku
JayM: Battle!
[OOC] Lynne: As my first move, I inch a pixel or two to the left :V
[OOC] Lynne: …okay I'll stop
JayM: Special Rules: Enemies come and go through the battlefield until the boss! They take a 20D action to enter and 10D after their action has passed they leave, because you're dashing past them

Hauser jams the accelerator pedal into maximum and climbs out onto the hood, brandishing her shotgun.

JayM: Fortunata is shielded!

[OOC] Hauser: HP: 203/634, MP: 636/716, SoS: 158 [========]
Hauser sneers at them, pausing to blast a low-hanging branch out of her way ahead. Her shotgun ejects two crystalline shells, hissing.
It jerks to the side, loosing forward momentum- You pass it, A's out of the field!
At this point two more hover interceptors show up, one with a Rifle Soldier and an Artillery Soldier and one with… This Ilirian is wearing ligther armor, although he has grenades with him, a Specialist!

Before Raziel can act, however!! A danger in the road, seems like you're heading towards a cliff- Sensors indicate five enemy signatures at the bottom of it! If you speed up you'll jump right over them, but can you do it?

You land, straight into the mess of interceptor, the marshlands light crimson with the explosion, the surveyor jumps around a bit… And from the smoke only one of them all remains, the wounded Specialist on the roof of the surveyor now

As the onboard computer shouts it's warning, you hear the roar of the engine of the incoming ship- Five times the size of your vehicle, a sleek design with three pointed wings, two underwing cannons and four missile bays as well as a torpedo unit, the Maviel Interceptor is a common sight in the illirian battlefield
As the large ship approaches you begin to outrun the smaller land interceptors

JayM: Altovento Report: Can hardly stand up to vehicle fire, however, it is extremely fast and can maneuver around it. Excels against other interceptors and bombers. That is, in stellar battles. Illirian starfighters are comparively sluggish in planetside and their weaponry and armor is far more potent against foot soldiers. Can't be destroyed without a precision strike against the cockpit

The lightning strike causes the ship to wave… Now's your chance! You can't damage it any more than this on the ground, so your only chance is strike at the weak spot, near the pilot's cabin! With the damage it has suffered it starts to veer down a little bit… If you were brave enough- You could climb on top of it
Lynne ducks her head down and takes a breath. "Reserves exhausted… But I have inhibited it to utter feebleness. Annihilate it!"

You grapple into the bottom wing of the ship, taking advantage of Hauser's armor's grappling gear you climb, slowly- Until the pilot decides to do a 360 roll, to try to get you off- A timely moment to let go as you're propelled upwards, and… When you fall down, youre'in the roof. The cabin is up ahead but… There has been ENOUGH Ilirian ship that have been taken down this way, so

Hauser grapples up onto the wing, the cable hooking securely into the missile bay. She draws her sword, climbs up, slowly but surely - her sword and fist ripping through the wing to form hand-holds - and draws back for a moment.

Hauser climbs through the hole, coming up onto the side wing, reaching down to help Fort up.
Hauser: "Made you an opening."
Lynne panics at first, but finds the leap a lot less intimidating once she's in the air! She enjoys a moment of feeling the air rush around her- then she sinks her sword into the hull as she lands to ensure a stable landing. She drags it along the hull, kicking up sparks as it grazes the outside, the air rushing through it and making it howl like a lunatic before she slices the hole a bit
Lynne bigger- all the better to fit Hauser's massive armor a bit more comfortably! [Swap Weapon and Attack, 40D]

JayM: A clean swipe, you smack BOTH out of the ship!
Fortunata: "Huh."
Hauser: Two little explosions in the underbrush below, quickly vanishing behind the Interceptor and the Surveyor.
With the path cleared you make your way towards the pilot cabin. You can see the pilot in his suit down there, he looks angry as hell. You witness him pressing a large red button- The entire hull becomes electrified! The pain is intense, he presses a couple of buttons on the ship's cockpit and the glass pane flies open, he climbs on top of the chair and aims his pistol down at you
JayM: Titan property, Stage 3 - At 25% health you're striking directly at the weak spot, and the enemy is furious! +50% damage taken and dealt!

Hauser steps out onto the electrified section, a faint sizzling noise rising up from her armor with each heavy step as she presses the attack on the pilot, as he clambers to his feet after Fortunata's deadly assault.
Fortunata: "Hauser! Watch your systems!"
Hauser slams one boot down inside the cockpit, a kssht rising up as intercoms open. She raises her tremendous sword in one hand, grabbing the pilot with the other.
Hauser: Her armor, her arm, her sword, spark with a deadly, brilliant light -

And the lightning triggers, a massive bolt of lightning and suddenly there is only crimson in view a terrible explosion…
And the smoke never settles, as but as you start loosing height it's washed away, the entire cockpit section gone
Lynne: "Evacuate?"
Hauser: "You're damn right!"
Hauser runs back towards the back of the Interceptor, hammering a fin on the tailwing one way as she passes it, dropping down onto the Surveyor.
And the ship starts to slowly veer down, all vital systems gone… And then you see- Jumping beside you, with Rohius in the wheel, the surveyor who took advantage of a small hill
Hauser: …Okay, leaping to one side to the Surveyor!
Jumping off to the surveyor… For the small moment you have airtime, you see a column of armored vehicles, tanks, approaching… The interceptor slowly veering towards them. The car shakes heavily as you hit the ground running and there is an omnious silence for a moment…
And a silent green light raises behind you… A second later, a powerful shockwave- And the sound of the explosion
Hauser hits the roof. Various warning sirens can be heard, muffled, from within her armor. "Yup. Not moving for a while."
Hauser: "Thanks for the catch, Nostrum."
Fortunata lets out a weak sort of laugh.
You speed off ahead… With the armored wall damaged, they can't pursue for now, you'll gain a lot of terrain, easily enough to make pursue inviable
JayM: You should be… Home free

JayM: Made me really extra happy
Peter: I'm reasonably sure you want to slap a boss loot and Status: Deprotect (20) on one of your weapons, Moku
Mokura: neat, I can actually do that now
Peter: you might also be interested in Acc I instead?
Peter: both are pretty useful for your "shoot a big GT hit" sort of paradigm
Mokura: yeah
Peter: actually we're probably getting near the end of the tier so let's upgrade you aggressively
Peter: Fort, take both Acc I -and- Deprot (20), probably
Mokura: yeah I need to re-math our ranking numbers
Peter: lemme know when your AP total is up to date
Peter: I'm lazy about math, but also, I drive two PCs a lot? we're even
Mokura: this game feels so awkward to upgrade in compared to V0
Mokura: which is less of a complaint
Mokura: and more of a stark contrast between how systems are handled
Mokura: v0 has mostly regular AP progression and lets you buy loot
Mokura: CZ has accelerated(?) AP growth, standard loot, and possibly reduced currency acquisition
Mokura: it's an interesting sort of challenge
Julian: Ahaha there is no actual accelerated AP growth you guys just
Julian: Fight a fuckton of small enemies
Mokura: o
Gravagar: Yeah, if I run a game again I should probably be less adverse to adding those guys than I was before. I am finding I have more to learn about how2run than I expected D:
Mokura: how's that been going along, anywho
Peter: okay, I just bought Charge Edge.
Mokura: which would seem to imply we hit another skill level's worth of AP?
Mokura: or
Mokura: did you not buy one yet
Peter: I just hadn't bought one yet
Peter: I'm about 80 AP away from Impulse Edge, which truly will make happiness rain down throughout the universe
Icecylee: imperial also has a slightly more variable than normal cost for abilities than some other classes so
Mokura: I am
Mokura: eternally amused that Parry Edge basically completely replaces your standard attack
Mokura: also it has a typo adjustment?
Mokura: does it cost 30 MP or should it have no adjustment
Mokura: http://storagebin.wikispaces.com/ORD+Imperial+Class#IMPERIAL-Techniques-Parry%20Edge

Julian: I like how Charge Edge is an ad eternum stance
Mokura: also shouldn't Grapple Claw have a +4 Power adjustment per additional tier
Mokura: or something of that nature
Gravagar: oh THAT impulse edge
Mokura: (1d10+8*ATK base)
Gravagar: yes it will definitely inject Good Feels directly into the lifeblood of the universe
Peter: like it'll probably become the edge I spam, moreso than Parry
Peter: of course it'll also make all the enemies attack me so I stop fuelling everyone's attacks, but oh well :imtank:
Gravagar: more MP means I can afford to dual blindzerk a little more often
Julian: By the way, Photon Torpedo was going to deal 1d12+315 Holy damage to a ro
Julian: You can't actually use that sort of weapon in melee range!

Mokura: or maybe holy with a rowmod?
Julian: Mokura: Heavy attack, Type Swap to Holy, Row Cutter and 4 ranks of Countdown
Julian: Ship had more ATK than MAG, if it used ATK on that it'd have dealt 1d12+532 I think
Peter: hey Grav, how close are you to Coordinate?
Gravagar: 2 abilities away from Dark Arts at the earliest Peter, but I plan on taking Saboteur (+10 CoS to delicious statuses) and Sparkstrike first to be honest… what did coordinate do again…
Peter: Coordinate hands out +25% bonus damage and +10 status CoS to allies acting immediately after you, if they hit the same target
Peter: it's good, especially with how much opportunity you have for technical plays by controlling your delays
Gravagar: Yeah, Coordinate sounds good, and Absorb MP is along the way, which I don't hate
Gravagar: however, I gotta stick with my Saboteur / Sparkstrike priority
Gravagar: I think
Callyn: Or do you?
Gravagar: !8ball
Gravagar: Don't count on it.**
Julian: You will invariably face a lot of Ilirians, yeah, as well as maybe machines. However also a lot of local fauna and flora!
Gravagar throws hands into air
Peter: Another advancement path you might consider would be Sparkstrike - Darkstrike - Traumatize.
Julian: And Ilirian soldiers aren't dumb they know they are weak to lightning. So unless they are simply unable to, like foot soldiers, expect defenses
Gravagar: right, and the best thing for those guys is group target. Group target isn't in my near future :V
Peter: AND ALSO, if the party hits critical mass for "capable of handing out damage bonuses"
Peter: I can pick up Absorber, which is "mark an enemy and regain health when you do at least +50% damage to it"
Gravagar: Oh also Julian
Gravagar: Mission 8?
Julian: Nope, uhn
Gravagar: I think it was mission 8… since I had the full log for 7 and 9 and I didn't miss one in between
Julian: Mission 7 was Path of Exploration, Mission 8 was supposed to be Distant Settlements and mission 9 was suppposed to be Uknown Enemies
Julian: By an… Error of judgement
Julian: I executed Distant Settlements AND Unknown Enemies in the same session
Julian: So I did 8 and 9 in the same day
Julian: So we are in 10
Gravagar: okay
Gravagar: When I was uploading logs last week I noticed that and it made me ???
Julian: And give yourselves 6 AP for the posted logs
Mokura: do you mean for ones we already posted
Mokura: or
Mokura: when we post all the new ones
Peter: oh huh
Peter: actually yeah I think my buy order after this is
Peter: 1. Impulse Edge, because everyone wants it, and it helps keep our healer fed
Peter: 2. Element Boost, because Fort and I share a SPD, and I think you could find a few things to do with "+50% damage to next elemental hit" that justify a 34D action
Gravagar: (yeah probably better them than me for MP recovery, since I do have a pretty huge tank that I can coast off of for a bunch)
Peter: it's gonna mostly be Raz (to fill up our tank of cures between battles) and Fort (to power big flashy GT hits)
Gravagar: Yeah, if ~30 MP makes the difference between being able to lay down what I need to, or being able to dualcast a berserk / immobilize to stop that CT, then I'll be sure to notify you with haste, but otherwise it might not be needed
Peter: it's actually like, 60! which is pretty good
