It's been a while, here's the previous chapter: https://tgchan.org/kusaba/questarch/res/745119.html

Hey guys, I know you wanna tell me some shit, but be quiet first. I'm watching the vids.

Use the tools you brought along.

Mako, which one has the most Stevish genetic profile?
Or if they still have implanted RFID's, do that instead!

If you don't have a head, use an arm and make some excuse.

Tell her Janu split her forces and are trying tonlaunch a surprise attack from another direct. See if you can convince captain Luca to split her own forces.

:Janu:"Wow I never heard Luca that strung up. I dunno if it was me or you guys that pissed her off more."

:ty:"Well thanks, just what I do. Oh and Mako helped."

:Janu:"Yeah, about that. She's not originally a synth is she? Are ya? Who are you?"

:mako:"I'm MAKO-VII"

:Janu:"Nah nah, that's a service designation. That crown. That's a Primogen Control Crown fixed with a Primogen Personality Crys-web Matrix. You were originally an organic, a person flesh and blood."

:mako: "Makes sense. I am based on the personality of a Hegemony officer."

:Janu: "Nah nah, if you were just some personality spooled up in a lab, you wouldn't need a Primogen Matrix. This is the complex stuff. And you are not gonna tell me it was put into an unaltered pleasure model. No way that was a mistake. Tell me who you really are? Primogen doesn't let just anyone take thier toys."

:mako:"I'm sorry I don't know what you're talking about."

:Janu:"Playin' dumb eh? Alright. Hey Ty, interested in selling your bot?"

:tyuhh:"Whoa wait how'd I get roped into this?"

:janu:"You're her boss. I wanna know. This little thing's got me curious. And I got a boss that likes curious things. How for the bot?"
No. 937831 ID: 9876c4

She's an independent operative, and she's contracted to me.
IF you can talk her into jumping, we'll need 1.5x her salary as a lump sum so we can hire another medic. In Pirate space in a rush. Plus a 15K breaching fee and a kilo of jerky.

But if you two can't agree than no sale.
No. 937897 ID: 9876c4

It was late and I was tired. I think the idea was to ask for a slightly excessive amount so we could see how wealthy they were. Ty would probably want more jerky, too.

(Are there any Mako fans who want to tell them off proper?)
No. 937929 ID: 094652

Do not incite a revolt among your crew while you are in a warzone.

Use the distraction now, plant some extra tripmines around here in case Luca wisens up to your diversion.

I am either unwilling or unable to arrange a transfer of contract while on an assignment, take your pick, and given her performance so far I would prefer to keep her in my employ. Discuss it with her later.

:janu:"So what's the contract worth to ya?"

:ty:"While on the job? A lot more than you got. No sale. Drop it."

:janu:"That a threat?"

:ty:""Nah, just stating a fact. She's not for sale."

:Janu:"Ease up there big guy. Boss isn't the sort that takes rejection well ya know. If I go back with what you said, bad things might be happening later to ya."

:ty:""Now who's giving threats?"

:Janu:"Not a threat, I'm telling ya straight cause I like you. My boss takes this stufff very personally. He's gonna want to know how that bot works, and he'll move planets to get it."

:ty:""Hey, you're my crew, we look out for each other."

:mako:"Still, Janu bought up a good point. I don't know about all this stuff about Primogen, or control crowns. I'd like to find out what this is. Will you help me with that?"

:Janu:"Ty! We're goin up. Get your crew ready, cause shit's going to get crazy up top."
No. 938215 ID: 9876c4

This is fine. This will all be fine.

MAKO, this may shock you, but I'm not an engineering whiz. If you can ask Rocket and Del, and find us something concrete, we'll see.
No. 938246 ID: b1b4f3

Hmm, her boss wants to find out, we want to find out, she wants to find out. How about a counter-offer? We figure it out, and when we do we'll tell her boss.
No. 938255 ID: 0fae41

You've got to have a user manual somewhere, right? It's definitely worth checking out in case other people come around looking to bid on the bot.
Janu, we would consider it a personal favor if your boss didn't hear about Mako.
Now let's shoot some pirates!

:Janu:"Alright listen up, I got a floor plan of Luca's personal chamber at the top of the Tower. These turrets watch the elevator, the two on the bottom are automated motion sensors. The one on top is manned but only armored on the front. But it also packs a lot more fire power than the drones."

:ty:"Doesn't seem too bad. I've dealt with worse."

:Janu:"Yyyyyeah. So this part back here? It's a kill zone, overlapping fire down a flight of stairs with no cover means Luca will put her heavy weapons there to mulch anything that gets that far. Ever dealt with that?"


:Janu:"So I was planning on hitting those turrets there, ripping them up and turning them on Luca, but it sounds like you want her stuff intact for the IFF thingy. Thing is, I don't see how we're going to take that sport without losing some folk. alternative is to just let Gar bomb it, but that would pretty much destroy everything back there. You seein something I'm not seein?"


Alright smart guys, I'm not much of a tactician now. What do I do? Do I...do I just smash something and maybe punch a hole in a wall?
No. 938468 ID: dd0b92

Attempt to hack the automated turrets. If you succeed, have one shoot the guy in overwatch and the other bug the sentinel (along with our drone) so we can aim the shot.

If the turrets aren't accessible, stealthily maneuver the drone behind the sentinel, then have it bug him at the worst possible moment.

After you're done here, see if you can uninstall and re-install the automated turrets near the main doorway. Whoever breaches that door is going to get an alpha strike, it might as well be the turret since they can pick off a few guys before dying.
No. 938487 ID: 9876c4

In theory, hacking the turrets would allow them to not fire at all. So it's still a good idea. And the odd case of collateral damage is still better than being ripped apart by turrets

The only other possible idea I have is how much less effective that killzone (and long range in general) would be in zero G. Janu seems like a resourceful type, so why not bring it up?

:ty:"Any way to shut off gravity here?"

:Janu:"I would have if you asked me like an hour ago. All we can do now is manually shut it off, and it won't be in the hallway."

:ty:"Okay...how about breaching charges? You got that?"

:Janu:"Gar does. You thinking of blowing a wall in?"

:ty:"Actually yeah. Blow the wall right in front of bug-guy, shoot the turret guy, and hack the automated turrets while Gar gives covering fire."

:Janu:"Oh you got someone that can work those things?"

:bee:"Oooh! Oooh! I can!"

:Janu:"Okay...yeah. I like the sound of that. Gar. Charge, now."



Combat starting! Command the squad, and roll for effectiveness!

No. 938771 ID: 9876c4

What kind of dice should we be rolling?

TY- you're our main gun support, Sustained fire, hit everyone, keep them from making a plan.
Bee-Use mobility to take down any flankers or runners, while advancing on turret
MAKO+Janu MAKO spots and marks important targets, Janu engages with her scoped thing. Turret gunner is contestant #1.
Everyone else-defend and cover TY. Targets of opportunity.

We can start the hack as soon as we've got the gunners down, presumbably

Everyone Else should cover Bee instead, since he's risking more exposure.

Ah crap I knew I forgot to do something. Yeah so, I'm going to experiment with dice rolls in combat before the Civ game. 1d20 per post, and it will determine the overall luck of everyone. I want to add an extra element of chance but not slow everything to a number grind so let's see how this works.

20! The breaching charge doesn't so much blow the wall to chunks as it pushes the wall forward, crushing the first gunman

Janu uses her looted pulse gun to blow the turret gunner's head to chunks, eliminating the two squishy targets in a second.

Ty hip fires keeps the auto turrets from focusing long enough for Bee to get into hacking range and she successfully shuts both down!

Garit keeps the hallway cleared from reinforcements drawn from the sound of the explosion.

:ty:"YEAH HA HA! ACTION OH HO HOLY SHIT! That was fast."


:Janu:"Got four more coming down the hall. Bee how long before you get those turrets working again."

:Bee:"Still need to reset their targeting protocols now. Oh my this is a tricky bit o' software, I may need like about say five ish minutes. Maybe four."

:mako:"So we hold right?"

:janu:"Hells no, we push! Don't let them dig in!"

Four minutes of funneling targets to us. All right, let's hold in cover here! Someone get on that manual turret, we'll cover you!

Ask Bee if she can temporarily switch the turrets to manual, you have enough teammates to point them in the right direction.

Throw some grenades into the hall every 20 seconds, keep the enemy forces disorganized!

Note to self, Bee is a Girl.
Let's get Mako Spotting, and directing fire on any priority targets. I figure synthetic vision is the best we've got.

17! Success! Turret's rail shot punches through the collapsible barrier, jamming it and blowing one pirate in half.

MAKO marks targets and forwards them to everyone's HUD.

:ty:"I count at least five is back there. Bee, can we get one of those guns set to manual and move it over here?"

:bee:"Nope sorry, these models are auto or nuthin. It's why they didn't sell to good and why only pirates still use em."

:ty:"Dammit...alright hold fast!"
No. 939347 ID: 0fae41

rolled 6 = 6

Those look like some heavy weapons they're carrying, make sure they don't get a chance to point those at us. Suppress the murder hole while the turret keeps punching new ones.

Critical success! The rail shot melts through the barrier and the pirates hiding behind it. The counterattack is stopped before it even starts as the survivors panic and run.

:ty:"Ha! That gun's got some serious punch to it! Can I rip that thing up and take it? Gar?"



:bee:"Hokay, I got a turret workin' now. Just gotta set it up and it'll start pickin' "Not-us" targets!"

:ty:And the other one?"

:bee:"Almost got this one. It's been a real stubborn stickler though. I probably can get this one done real soon though."

:janu:"Good cause we need to push now before Luca's boys wise up to us."

:janu:"That's what Luca's hoping we do!"

The corridor they just used? Fine, we'll look both ways before crossing the street, but now is the time to PUUUSH. Finish that second turret Bee, then meet up with us ahead! Don't turn the first one back on til they're both ready, though.
No. 939566 ID: 9876c4

rolled 3 = 3

We are about to gain ownership of 2 majorly large guns.
Why would Luca want us to do that? Think on that, but quietly.

I fear our new friend may be trying to get us to take... excessive risks.
if she wants to send a scout or two ahead, fine. We're not splitting up.

Oh this is going to hurt no matter what. Send Janu's drone ahead to see what they're preparing first, then move ahead with covering fire so Bee can set the turrets up

:ty:"Hey you think that turret can penetrate the walls and hit the other side?"

:Janu:"Yeah if you had about a year of constantly firing at it."

:ty:"No sass now. I'm just sayin, we're walking into something unknown."

:Janu:"Which is why I said we should move it Luca sets up!"

:ty:"Well what could Luca get on us?"


:Janu:"That! That's what Luca has!"

:ty:"You knew!?"

:Janu:"Actually this is new but I'm not surprised!"

Shots are deflected by the dual shield generators!

Well on the plus side, charging would have in no way helped us.

Thrown grenades would ignore the shield, as would melee attacks.
By far the best idea is someone gets close enough to stick one of those breaching charges on it.

What kind of guns does she have, and what melee weaponry do you have? If this mech is supposed to work with infantry support, which she currently lacks, this could be your chance.
