"The great nightmare of the Central Bureau."
Monica puts her hand on the warm surface of the reconstitutor. "And now he's floating around in a jar."
"like a spooky evil pickle," 73-6 is at the controls, poring over 38-3's specs and extracting the memories they'll need for the final push.
"Going to be a weird dynamic," Monica says.
"sosa did something to him. i'm not an expert on personality reconstruction or anything but even i can see it. 38-3 was like an emotional flatline. a complete shutdown. with this one big insane peak to him."
"What was that?" Monica asks.
"he hated himself and loved sosa," 73-6 says. "it was specifically programmed in."
"That's... jeez." Monica takes a step back from the pod. "We were up to some grim shit in the Bureau, huh."
"killing him might have been the best thing for him." 73-6 fiddles with the controls. "i'm just gonna slide the sosa lust setting down."

38 is a bit of a wreck. Having an outpost explode around you and getting swiss cheesed can do that.
He was shelled out the ass, though, and with his level of expertise 73-6 thinks he can cobble what's left into one of three suites:

Stalker: Holographic disguise and voice modulation. Same stuff that made 38-3 so freaky in life.
Beast: Pain nullifiers, fast heal, antiballistic skin. 38-4 will have the same level of nigh-unkillability as 38-3 did.
Ripper: Silent step and a HUD that pinpoints weak spots and pressure points mean that 38-4 will be able to instantly kill nearly anyone he gets close enough to with his spike, no matter what kind of armor they're wearing. The exception is people like Penelope, who are as shelled up and expert in melee as he is.
No. 783519 ID: 7b7ab3

You know what the team doesn't have?
A tank. A heavy. A tough guy.
Sev is a great spook, Pen is a melee machine, and Dubs rocks support.
We need a guy who can soak up punishment and deliver it back.
I vote Beast.
No. 783522 ID: 9145ba

Closed casket reconstitution, eh? Must be pretty bad. Anyway, you should preserve Beast mode 38: This nightmare is coming back to haunt Sosa, and it's not going away. The holo-guise is a regrettable loss, but they know 38's coming. They will likely be prepared for it. If we nicked any other shell upgrades when we cleaned out Jericho, this is the time to use them. The point of no return!

About the next point on the list... 14-1's already done a lot for Sev. Should we really ask him to come provoke a Bureau he's already safe from? It might just irritate him.
No. 783525 ID: 9a72f1

Beast; a terminator would really round us out.
No. 783527 ID: 65ec8d

I agree with the reasoning that we need someone who can take damage, so yeah, Beast.

Uh, see if you can find a way to make him ok with that, though. Not like, crazy into it, just fine with a bit of pain. You don't want to make someone into a bullet sponge and also have it super suck for them.
No. 783528 ID: 398fe1

Beast. Sosa has prepared for any holographic disguises by now and will be expecting us, so this will be a shootout. We can't count on stealth or trickery.

Uh, can we fix his face? Make him look not so horrific? Eyes in the right places, that sort of thing?
No. 783533 ID: f6ba27
File 148826001739.png - (10.46KB , 960x560 , 30.png )

73-6 goes for Beast.
He plugs in the final commands, then gives 38-4 a devil-may-care attitude about pain. If you're gonna make a meatshield, you may as well make him amenable to his role.

He finalizes, and his supersoldier starts to bake.

73-6 considers the next point on his agenda.
Should he call 14-1, or let retired moldies lie?
And if he does, what does he ask for?
No. 783535 ID: 9c2915

Dial up 14-1. Tell him that shit's about to hit the fan, and you'll see him on the other side.

He'll probably be happy to know you're alright.
No. 783536 ID: dd5b4d

Call him for advice on storming a heavily fortified corporate HQ. Who knows, he might even be willing to provide a little oversight.
No. 783537 ID: 9f3729

Aye. We can proc this solo, but he's our dad friend buddyguy! We gotta say hi.
No. 783539 ID: 398fe1

I feel like calling him just to say hi would be a breach of the general agreement not to call him unless it's an emergency. Also, the last conversation we had with him really sounded like he expected us to say hi AFTER escaping the Bureau.

So I say, don't call him. At best he'll be angry. At worst he'll outright warn Sosa to keep on good (enough) terms with the Bureau.
No. 783540 ID: fe7355

While I really doubt 14-1 would rat Sev out for calling when it wasn't a emergency, it still isn't a emergency and 14-1 will not be happy if Sev uses what should be a secure emergency contact for less than that. Save the social call until Sosa is good 'n dead and y'all will have legit reason to celebrate.
No. 783541 ID: 8d4593

I don't think we should call him. Not yet. If we do then for advice. This isn't his fight, but the mans got experience.
No. 783552 ID: dd5b4d

Well, if we don't call him now there's no chance to get him involved. The man lives on another continent.
No. 783553 ID: 1226ae

Leave 14-1 out of this. For all we know he's actually our boss's secret split personality.

Have we ever even SEEN our boss's real face? WAS IT ALWAYS JUST 34-3?
No. 783554 ID: 4f1e84

Let retired moldies lie, man. 14-1 already had enough action for his lifetimes.

But do call him after we take down Sosa.
No. 783556 ID: 7db3b6

I agree with leaving 14-1 out of this until we're popping the champaign.
No. 783567 ID: 04c3d3

Give him a call, but don't recruit him for the push. This is our gig.
Ask him for advice about post-murderzombie life.
No. 783572 ID: 0555b9

You can call 14-1 for business, but don't call him just for pleasure. It makes sense to use what resources ya got for the final push.
No. 783589 ID: 65ec8d

Leave 14-1 alone. Let him hear from you when it's all over.
No. 783743 ID: d36af7

Call 14-1, ask if he wants to get involved personally, but spin it less like asking for a favor, more like an invitation to a party. "We're all gonna get plastered on illegal shell upgrades and stolen Tribranch murder drugs, then go dance on Sosa's grave afterwards, you wanna come along?"
No. 783744 ID: b2c471

Don't call, maintain opsec.
No. 783746 ID: 3abd97

Call him. Even if he doesn't come along, he's always given you good advice. And this might be your last chance.

73-6 has 14-1's comms dialed in.
He is on the verge of requesting a connection.
He shuts it off and feels the little servomotors responsible for long distance communication whir down in his head.
He'll call 14-1 once he's on the other side.

What's next on his checklist? Oh, right.
His pulse picks up.
Was last night just like a one-time thing? How do you ask to do that again? Should he ask her out on a date first? Like maybe with his hologram on? Should they play Blastlands? She's so much better than him! Should he ask if she wants to like watch a movie? Should he get a tie? He has no idea where he could find a tie. Maybe DA has one???

Hmmmm. Does that sort of thing really work? Should 73-6 like...

Chill out, Sev.
Do they??? Even if it's MREs?

Oops there she is. Act chill, 73-6. COOL.

73-6 leans in the doorway of DA's armory. Sara is methodically putting a bullpup rifle back together. The rag in her hands suggests she was just cleaning.
She stares at the gun for a couple of seconds after it's back in one piece, mouth in a thin frown, then goes to start stripping it down again.
73-6 waits for her to notice him, but she doesn't. She seems preoccupied.

"sup," 73-6 says.
"Oh!" She looks up. "Hi, Sev!"
"hey babe."
"Sev?" Sara asks. "Why does your face look like that?"

"uhhh my stitches are probably just loose again." 73-6 hastily wipes whatever he was trying off his face and scrambles for another tack. "i was just wondering if, like-- that's uh, that's a cool gun."

"I was actually wondering something too."
Sara picks the gun up off the table.
"Tomorrow, when you go for Sosa. You're gonna be outnumbered."
"probably. uh."
"You have Keesh and Monica and Dartline and everyone in the control room," Sara says. "You have enough hands there. Hands that don't know how to shoot. But I do."
"I'm a vet," she says. "And a field medic. And maybe I'm not a super-assassin like all of you and maybe this isn't Blastlands, but I've fought before, for stuff I didn't really even care about. And this I care about. I'm tired of sitting on my hands and watching you risk your neck. You and Pen and Dubs and I guess 38-4 now too. I want to come along this time."

Okay but only if you wear a bunch of heavy armor to protect your vulnerable brainmeats.
No. 784053 ID: 9145ba

Well it's not like you didn't have everything on the line already. Having a bureau operator in the field could help too if those permissions still mean anything. One who's so quiet they have to cough to let people know they're in the room. Plus she probably won't set off any metal detectors!

But uh after all that mission prep don't you just wanna sit somewhere and uh... bone? I mean, chat?

No. 784071 ID: d05761

You couldn't convince sick Penelope to stay behind, so I'm not sure you can stop Sara either.
You'll probably need her help anyway.

She never did CQC so her melee skills may be lacking.
No. 784081 ID: a8bc5c

Way I see it, there's two problems that need addressing if Sara wants onboard.

1: her ice needs to be vetted and improved. do not get DA involved in this. Maybe 73-6-2 can help a bit.

2: she needs to be able to wear one of the bulletproof coats you guys use. Without compromising her ability to see.

Best bet with that is probably trying to just give her access to multiple someone's visual feed in a pinch along with any schematics and cameras we hack during the upcoming shitstorm.
No. 784083 ID: 8dcef8

Spar with her.
See if she measures up.
No. 784105 ID: d36af7

Give her some of the best armor plates that money can buy, and also acquire any spare bodies of the same model, reconfigured so she can pilot them remotely. Call 'em extra life power-ups. Replace the empty brain cases with bombs.

Keisha isn't gonna like it if we let her girlfriend AND her best friend fight the final boss.
No. 784138 ID: 0555b9

Explain to Sara there's a certain degree of expendability to you Bureau agents that she lacks. You and Dubs have died before, and Penelope's accepted the risk, but there's no way to reconstitute even your body, Sara. You just don't feel right putting that on the line.

If you did end up going, however, hiding a bomb in your head for the mision would be pretty cool. Nobody would see (or hear) it coming.
