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

"It's absolutely disgusting out here. After a standoff, Hegemony forces opened fire on civilian colonists in the border town Kabu-ra. The town has now become a warzone as Imperial forces are responding in overwhelming force to the unprovoked attack"

"It doesn't look any better for the people down here. We'll have more as the situation develops"

"Will you turn that shit off Ty? We're in the middle of a gods damned warzone right now!"

"What? I like to keep up with current events"

"How's this for current? We are about to ram a giant fucking asteroid filled with the worst space pirates this side of the Rim!"

"Really?! Where? I wanna see!"

"I dunno. Your intel said we are looking for a module right? Gives off very specific signals. Well the ship says those signals are coming from three very different spot. I got readings from the lower hangar, near the comms tower, and near what I think is a reactor."

"You think?"

"Bite me, there's a lot of energy bouncing around out here. Still we got only one boarding torpedo, you decide where it penetrates."

Sorry for the buzzkill, Rocket's all upset again. So I totally zoned out, what did she say about where to go? I don't wanna ask. She might get mad at me

No. 934789 ID: 9876c4

Hanger means armed warships, almost certain to be a high enemy presence down there.
Reactor is the best place to hide something.
But I agree, we should hit the Comms tower, because we'll have a lot of fun controls and readouts, plus it may be defensible.

Comms Tower is is!

Mmmmmyes. I like weapons. I got the shotgun, and I got the bombs. I think I got a machinegun. I gotta check our stock first...


"Hey Ty, that torpedo's only got room for three. Whose's coming?"


"Well clearly, I'm-a comin now. After all, I'm the known assassin in this here neck a space I do tell right."

"Oh no. I signed up for a fight. I'm coming."

"Looks like a magazine, but most of the heavy ordnance is gone. I think we penetrated a lot deeper than intended."

Okay, we're lost then. Sorta. Just gotta figure out how to get back to the Tower.

Problem is I only see two ways up. One has a lot of rapid energy discharge like a gun fight's going on, and the other has a large spike in power. Like a reactor about to blow. Oh shit I hope it's not a reactor about to blow.

Do you have an engineer on your team? If so, go to the reactor and jerryrig it with some duct tape and a remote detonator.

You should go see about the single energy discharge instead of multiple small ones. Maybe they're charging a weapon and you can go stop it.

:ty:"Right, this way!"

:bee: "Why are we heading TOWARDS the giant energy build up now?"

:ty:"We want to avoid getting bogged down in gun fights as long as we can! This way we can remain undetected for-oh shit."

:bee:"Looks like there's still a gun fight here too. Just with energy guns instead. Well that's a fine dandy-doo."

:mako:"Who are they? Cynysis goons?"

:ty:"Can't be, we're the first ones here. Everyone else is bogged down in that huge fight in the asteroid field."

:bee:"Well now could just be infightin'. I'm thinkin we should be exploiting that there quibble and get an inside man that knows where all the doohickeys are."

:mako:"Are you sure we should take a risk like that? They can easily just betray us."

:ty:"Well I don't think we have much option. Only way to go in is to start shooting."

:bee:"True enough. If I had a choice though there, I'd help the folks gettin shot since they aren't dumb enough to try and shoot at a reactor like that."

:Ty:"You can tell from here?"

:bee:"Well of course I can silly. I'm trained to spot all kinds of stuff that I can sabotage when I need to dontcha know."

Not sure why we'd keep it a secret.

We're not exactly friends, but we're also not military. We just want to a job and peace out. We need secure access to the Comms tower.

A route not under heavy fire would be ideal.

But yes, let them take point.

>What do
Tell them that you're on a simple snatch-and-grab. Once you have what you need, you'll leave. But first, we should patch this reactor so it doesn't explode before we can evacuate. After everyone's done here, maybe we can set it off.

Rig the bomb up so it will only detonate after it gets two confirmation signals from both captains.

:ty:"Sounds great. You go ahead, fix the reactor and set up that bomb you were planting."

:janu:"Bomb? Oh no no, we got no bomb, we just sabotaged the coolant system. The heat build up will ensure critical meltdown long after we're gone. Both of us. Come along, no need to be shy."

Actually...
Our employers are trying to capture the base intact. They could lose a lot of the disposable assets when the station goes kaboom. We should probably tell someone about this ticking time bomb. Y'know, eventually. After we get our IFF. And off the station. And perhaps paid. The comms tower sounds like it might have the right equipment for that.

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.

Janu, we would consider it a personal favor if your boss didn't hear about Mako.
Now let's shoot some pirates!

:ty:"MAKO, this may shock you, but I'm not an engineering whiz. Look, when we get back, we can get Del or someone else that's good with tech to work on it 'kay?"

:mako:"Please not Del"

: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?"

:ty:"Mmmmaybe?"

: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?"

:tyuhh:"Uhhhh"

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?

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!"

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

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."

:garit:"Hgrrrr."

: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!"

Commands?

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

:ty:"We wait for the first wave and push them back. Hold, just long enough for Bee to do her thing. Mako? Spot for us. Someone get on the turret!"

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!"

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?"

:garit:"Hrnnnn...mmh-mmm."

:ty:"Damn..."

: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."

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.

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.

: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! YOU WANNA KILL ME? COME AT ME BITCH!


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

:ty:"You knew!?"

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

FAILURE!
Shots are deflected by the dual shield generators!


:ty:"Shit! Is there anything that can bypass that!"

:Janu:"Nothing we got! That shit has two generators! Those stop anything moving faster than a bullet."

Oh crap oh crap oh crap! Now would be a good time for strategy

Stuff a pirate corpse with grenades, throw it towards the mech, then use the turret to move it with newton's third law followed by a hit to detonate before they realize what is going on.

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.

Someone tough, and durable, and AH DAMN...
