Preemptive Strike

Post by DeuxBlackthorn » Fri Sep 06, 2019 11:31 pm

[18:19] Scene as you all gather at the designated location, the Vanguard surface shuttle drifts down just off to the side of the gate. The pilot opens the door and looks you all over quickly "Guess you're the crew for this mission. So... assuming you all remember that dinosaur attack a few months ago, we've got another similar group gathering about 100 miles out, close enough to pose a risk to the city. The plan is to hit them at their nest, and see if maybe we can turn up some information on the cause of this behavior"
[18:21] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) licks her lips and looks at the Vanguard lead "Are we trying to do a land approach or raining fire from above and then air dropping in? Or...something else?" she asks, wondering why there wasn't a missile they could fire
[18:22] Sparks privately agrees, pulling her cannon around checking it, as it hums and powers up softly showing various indicator lights, the spindle mounted in it starting to spin
[18:23] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 (ryoko.mannonen) looks to Nyx " Is tactical grade hardware authorized on this mission Katy-oujosma?
[18:23] Katy mutters to Juno "Well, i'm glad that you met him. Wonder if he did mention his past ..." she returns her focus to the ongoing preparations and the arriving Vanguard shuttle, listening to the short briefing "Big game hunting ?" she nods and goes through a final check of her gear, turning to CELES "Define tactical grade hardware."
[18:24] Sparks: ?"stuff that goes boom"
[18:25] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: " Bipedial weapons platform about two and half stories tall. "
[18:28] Katy coughs and glances over to the Vanguard goons, soon returning her attention to CELES, shaking her head "This seems to be more of a force recon mission. Let's not make an unnecessary fuss."
[18:29] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) let her own tail curl around Wraith affectionately though at the same time there was some possessiveness to it. she growled a bit with a toothy grin.... " I Would be voting for a little Face time with a Fukuiraptor but if you guys want to fire bomb the area i will not complain too much but the Bog Queen probably wount like it much if the site is in the swamp lands....
[18:32] Scene the agent shakes her head "We're hoping to get some information about what's actually going on... bombing the area would ruin anything of potential use. Plan is to fly you about a mile out, and then make final approach on foot. Subdue smaller specimens if possible, but as long as the bodies aren't totally destroyed they'll be more useful than the last batch"
[18:33] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: " understood. Reconfiguring in stealth mode.
[18:35] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) licks her lips and slowly nods "Alright...so we're hiking a bit" she states and looks at Sparks "maybe your science vessel could get some samples back?" she asks curiously, shivering as she feel's Limly's tail. She blinks as Celes reconfigures, tilting her head and then nodding "alright, got it...any dangers out there right now besides the dinos?"
[18:36] Sparks wrinkles nose at the parameters"*Not* totally destroyed?" she huffs a bit and pats her cannon "..." looks to Wraith "sure, after, it usually provides overwatch on an operation like this, giving tactical maps, marking enemies and locations..."
[18:37] Katy listens to the Vanguard agent and nods "Fair enough. Lets try to be as subtle as possible until we discover the nest." she notices the question about other dangers and nods "Yeah, any special enviornmental protection required ?" she ponders
[18:42] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) nods a bit... " So it will be my burden to not totally destroy anything and everything in front of me, but if any of you get in a tough spot feel free to ask for help, I promise to only bite the Dinos or if you ask nicely."
[18:46] Scene the woman shakes her head slightly "I just did a final fly-over scan and didn't turn up any other signs of threats. Of course, there are a few pretty large dinos gathered already, so the fight isn't gonna be a pushover. They're on the edge of a small forest area, so maybe a couple of those tree monster things, can't really be sure either way with them. Any other questions, or ready to hop in?"
[18:48] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) licks her lips and slowly nods, letting go of Limly's leg "I'm ready" she states, making ready to hop on the cargo craft for transport over there
[18:49] Sparks grabs her hat making her way to the craft to board with the others, slaving the iridium to follow
[18:50] Katy rubs her freckled nose "Well, if somebody got a talent to neutralize a target inconspicuously and quietly, i would welcome that in before we start shootin' stuff. Additionally we could use some close combat specialist, should we end up in an ambush."
[18:51] Killer Queen fallowed everyone in carefully tucking her wings in the door way as it wasnt made to accommodate such extras.... " Im pretty solid with CQC, so if you get in a jam come to me, im fine with being a target...."
[18:52] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: " I could probably handle a silent take down or two. We will be fine as long as there are no giant tank sided crab cave demons
[18:56] Scene the agent waits for everyone to pile in, then closes up the door and launches off into the wilderness for a couple minutes, setting down on the low side of a small hill and gesturing across it "It's open field from here to their nest, with a little bit of sparse cover here and there"
[18:57] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) smiles to Katy as they get on "I can teleport in and excel at close quarters combat" she states with a smile "so if we need a fast attack, I can start the fun" she says, hopping out when they arrive at the destination
[18:58] Katy inspects the 'Killer Queen' and 'Fallen Wraith' from head to tails and grins a bit "I figured as much.", returning her focus to CELES, nodding "Lets just try to get as close to the nest as possible, then drop a nasty lil' surprise inside it .. and head home."
[19:01] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: ... " I didn't bring any satchel charges.
[19:01] Sparks snorts "I have a cannon."
[19:04] Killer Queen Chuckled lightly. " Remember the goal isnt to wipe them all out we need some alive, and while i have no doubt that i could pummel a group of them to death without much concern i want to try my hand at restraint if at all possible. And im willing to play along given our benefactor is sparing no expense here.
[19:07] Scene the agent brings the transport to a full stop, then pulls out a large rifle "I'll provide some cover fire if anything tries to sneak up on you. Up to you how you handle things from here, just try not to cause too much damage. We need to know what's going on, or we'll keep having to deal with these attacks" getting out and moving to a prone position at the top of the hill
[19:09] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) looks slowly around "Alright...so...I can teleport us in if we want, or we can set up a perimeter and I can teleport a few in...or I can go in and cause a mess..." looks at the others and smiles, tail coiling again around Queen's leg
[19:10] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: " if only we had a cardboard box. they'd never see us. " She then starts walking, albeit quietly trying to stay low and use cover
[19:11] Katy bites her lower lip and playfully strokes over the tip of a certain red-marked grenade "Well, thats a shame. It would be a chance to get rid of all those tensions inside ..." finally breaking out her nuclear powerfantasies and returning her focus on the missions "Sparks ... tactical analysis and target priorities. CELES ... get up close and personal to the wildlife."
[19:12] Sparks hovers near the back of the formation, pulling herer padd out as Iridium flies high in the sky, mostly invisible at altitude and begins scanning the area, feeding a tactical readout to her
[19:14] Killer Queen simply stood back letting the Ro-butts do there thing for now because her answer was storming in and punching things till they stopped moving...... " When you ladies want to act just give me heads up..."
[19:17] Unit 3 would seemingly land out of nowhere next to the group, that giant hand of hers shifting and merging back into a hand from a cone shape, "Protocols activating, Landing successful Analyzing.... Analysis complete, Defensive protocols initiating, Charging main weapons..." She saw everyone going towards the robots and decided to move to one side and forwards, she was a stationary fighter, so making a distraction might be a good idea.
[19:20] Scene the dinosaurs seem to just be milling around in a large clear area at the edge of the woods, but just like the attack on the city, predators and prey are peacefully working together. Scans of the area show no unexpected signatures, however there is one abnormality. The strange alien vines in the area, which are always packed with immense amounts of energy, but normally keep it dormantly stored, are instead dispersing that energy into the gathered dinos.
[19:21] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) unwraps her tail and takes off after Celes on hands and feet, moving swiftly over by her side and crouching low and ready beside her "I'm on your four o'clock" she whispers as she keeps up, staying low and ready to teleport both of them if need be
[19:22] Katy tries to link her advanced AR scope to the incoming tactical data provided by Sparks, gaining detailed information about range, wind speed and air density as much as individual speed vectors of the various targets "Hell, thats a lot of big lizards." she mutters, going prone and into a firing position which would allow her to deal with the massive kick of her rifle "Targets in sight ... ready to provide fire support on priority targets." she mutters into her coms.
[19:23] Sparks pulls her cannon around off her back, checking the charge and going to a knee for the moment studying her readout, reaching out on comms to the group relaying a tactical map to those that can receive it, marking dinos with vector and distance information, and then highlighting the vines "There's something odd going on here... like the vines are feeding power into the creatures.. maybe controlling them?"
[19:23] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 zooms in close and sends back a video feed to the rest, complete with tactical display, tagging each energy source and individual dinosaur murmuring quietly ' this make absolutly no sense'
[19:26] Killer Queen waited patiently.... " If were just going to charge in and fight them you should just say so, if there is anyone in this group you want leading it its me., If thats the plan give the word and ill make sure you ranged types get all the best shots...."
[19:29] Unit 3 kept walking fearlessly... Her headset was broken at the moment and was in the process of being repaired before hearing about the last bastion of humanity being in danger by a bunch of extinct creatures... *sigh* She had run off before the repairs were complete, though she had charged up a good amount, "It seems the ranged portion is handled..." She Drew her sword and activated the lovely blade, then dashed forward without saying a word, to her there was no need to communicate.... She was communicating with herself!
[19:31] Scene the dinos keep milling about, the triceratops knocking down trees and breaking them down, smaller dinos gathering the smaller pieces and building nests with them, while the giga and spinos seem to be on guard patrols. They don't seem to be aware of you yet, but the wind is beginning to shift directions, and will soon carry your scent towards them... and now Unit 3 moves into the open, certain to be seen in very short order
[19:33] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) looks over at Unit 3 and groans, whispering to Celes "we're about at the end of our allies' patience. I can teleport us in close or out. If you want a distraction, I can take a beating...but once the fighting starts I might not stay tactical for long. Your call if you want to take an early situational advantage"
[19:34] Sparks rolls her eyes as Unit 3 just rushes in, marking it on the tactical readout and picking her targetr
[19:38] Killer Queen rolled her eyes a bit... a telepathic thought rolled out unintentionally to all that could pick up on such things. " they never listen ..." she crouched and took off in a suprisingly fast probably out pacing a cheetah in raw speed. the advantafe of big, wide feet they gained incredibly traction and control even in soft dirt.... not too diffrent than some of the larger dinos feet while wings leveled and gave her enough lift to balance her body in what would normally be a totally out of control mad dash but with all these features it was an incredibly graceful dash. some kind of magical ring forming around her as she ran attempting to get in range of the densest cluster before they could react to her....
[19:40] Katy was glad to see that a lone melee shocktrooper was finally taking the initiative and begins to advance towards the 'enemy', releasing the saftey and taking a few deep breath, then mutters into her coms "Target alpha designated to the big one ... high explosive timed airbust loaded ..." not sure if she was able to penetrate it's skull, and for now aiming at it's legs. She wouldn't fire yet.
[19:45] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 glances over to katy. ' so.. are we helping her or letting her get crushed and use the the fight as data? "
[19:46] Unit 3 was running in a wide loop to com in from the side of the group of dinosaurs, she was a defensive unit with a few offensive protocols... She wasn't planning on being the main attacker, just a distraction! Her boots activated and she jumped, twice... Three times into the air as her mouth opened and blasted the area with a loud, "OH HAI THERE WELCOME TO THE SPRINGFIELD MALL WHERE WE CATER TO YOUR EVERY WANT! FRESH BEVERAGES AND SUCH ARE IN THE FOOD COURT!" Her sword was electrified as well as she fell onto the dinos with a loud and annoying voice broadcasting advertisements from her world.... It might be a great distraction!
[19:50] Scene the giga notices Unit 3's approach a few seconds before she starts broadcasting, letting out a loud roar to alert the others, so loud that it uproots some of the smaller trees right at the edge of the woods and sends them flying from the air pressure. Most of the dinos turn in that direction, though one spino and a couple trikes split off when they notice Queen as well, the main group moving into a battle formation, with the raptors and coelophysis taking up flanking positions, the line moving forward to meet the approach
[19:53] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) growls "looks like we're on" she states, moving from the crouch and springing forward. She moved rapidly across the ground on hands and feet, reaching hundred mile per hour top speeds with her tail moving to balance her. She jumps and teleports to the nearest raptor, trying to grab it with her claws and moving her mouth in an attempt to bite down on its neck and rip out its wind pipe
[19:53] Sparks keeps the feed up, indicators marking called targets like Katy's and firing lines as she analyzes the vines, watching for patterns in the flow or what happens or changes during the fight "Don;t see why we couldn;t let her get smushed..." she mutters
[19:58] Katy gasps when the Giga's warning roar breaks the tense silence "Alright, lets forget about the stealthy approach ... " she sighs and motions over to CELES "C'mon, what are you waiting for ? Try to stabilize the front." she would then take a final breath, returning her focus to the scoped perspective on the battlefield and fire her first 25mm round, targeting the Giga's legs. If successful, the grenade would detonate right in front of the Giga's legs, showering them with a cone of shrapnel, which might stagger the beast or even cause it to limp.
[19:59] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) charged the Dino in front of her fully aware of the flanking Dinos movements keeping an eye on them as much as possible while charging into the dino she planted and energy exploded from her form in a shock waves of sin energy washing over the Dinos harmlessly to no effect but her allies attacks gaining a very dark magic to enhance there attacks by 10 tons , the plant was the beginning of her own attack it would be appropriate to scream shoryuken as she jumped punching upward at the Dino's jaw with 15 tons of force.
[20:02] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 nods Understood. " She begns to walk forwaed and she's sheathed in light reforming ito a much heavier armor She lowers her beam cannon and begins to lay down cover fire as she makes her way to the front " Thank you for choosing PAE for your idiot rescue"
[20:02] Unit 3 was still broadcasting advertisements as she tried to slash at one of the Spinos... The Giga was big, but she'd fought bigger robots... The electricity coursing through her blade intensified when it made contact, hopefully cutting through the thick dino skin with ease as the blade itself was able to cut through armor at least 10 inches thick, "ARE YOU TIRED OF FEELING SICK AND TIRED? THEN TRY THE GREAT HOPPING THINGY! IT FILLS YOU WITH ENERGY! MAKES YOU LESS TIRED AND HELPS BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM! JUST PUT THE POWDER ON THE TABLE, CUT IT UP WITH A CARD AND SNORT IT UP YOUR NOSE! TGHT IS CLINICALLY PROVEN TO IMPROVE YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE STYLE! SIDEEFFECTSINCLUDEHEARTFAILURELIVERDISEASECANCERANDINEXTREMECASESDEATH"
[20:13] Scene Wraith's teleport catches the raptor by surprise, the creature trying to leap aside but not having enough time, Wraith's teeth easily sinking in the ripping its throat open, leaving it collapsing to the ground. Sparks' scans don't see any changes of note underway, though the energy keeps flowing to the dinos even as they move. Katy's shot goes on course and detonates at the giga's leg, the shrapnel bouncing off harmlessly, but the force of the explosion staggers the beast briefly while it catches its footing again, putting it behind the rest of the charge. Limly's target snaps its head to the side as she launches up, the punch grazing up its jaw, but catching a couple teeth and knocking them out. Celes's beam cannon fires into the massed group, the cover fire mostly deflecting off the hardened hides of the larger dinos, but a few shots go into the flankers to much more devastating effect. Unit 3's sword catches the other spino, drawing a roar of pain, but the beast quickly twitches its head aside, keepin
[20:14] Scene: keeping the blade from sinking deeper than flesh. The spinos both snap their jaws towards their attackers, focused more on speed than full force, so only bringing 25 tons to bear. The trikes barrel past the front line, lowering their horns as they rush towards the gunners. The remaining small dinos collapse in around Wraith, trying to tangle her up in a mass of bodies and tiny teeth to rip her apart
[20:16] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) grins as she spits raptor blood and flesh on the ground, licking her lips and seeing the group converge on her. At the last second, she teleports away, then re-emerges behind the line, going to grab the nearest raptor by the tail, claws slicing across it in an attempt to sever it from the body, if successful, she'd lunge in and try and bite its head open from behind
[20:22] Sparks sets her cannon to beam mode, taking careful aim, she pulls the trigger and sweeps, a brilliant column of destructive energy leaping from the barrel and lancing across the field with a piercing electronic squeal, slashing through the vines cutting a swath to detach them from the dinos, looking for effect
[20:24] Katy is pushed back around a meter from the intense pushback of her XM rifle, a wonder that her shoulder wasn't dislocated. She was grumbling in agony and her mood was even worse now, when she notices that the frontlines were already overrun "Alright, this is fucked up ... " in a swift move trying to change mag to armorpiercing shaped charge rounds. She was more of less standing now and trying to fire a quick-scope shot aimed at the nearest trikes skull, in hope to instantly take it out. The pushback of this improvised shot would for sure have brutal consequences ...
[20:26] Killer Queen growled out in frustration that her attack didnt connect fully though she in no way dodged the fast attack the quick snap robbed of its energy in a skin tight field that suddenly became visible like a faint aura, Limly was a combatant of misdirection by nature so with the dino to her left so hard focused on the back line as soon as her hit the ground she started down the one in front of her diving to her left throwing a full 15 tons right at the triks gut the impact bursting out more sin Energy as black gooy tar made a trail under that dino filling out a 40 foot puddle around the the smaller dinos the goo it self wasnt that sticky but the hundreds of black tentacles rising up from the goo that would instantly begin grabbing and pulling at the dinos putting equal force back against them when trying to move through it preventing them from fighting people if they wanted to move in the space at least buying the back line time to fall back from there flanking assault....
[20:29] Unit 3 closed her mouth, distraction complete! Her big hand shot out and opened wide as the spino tried to bite her, the palm opening and a barrel coming out, "Magnetic accelerator online, 25% charge, firing..." A projectile would come out at an impressive speed and into the gaping mouth at point blank range, there would be no explosion as she was under 75% power usage at the moment, but the recoil would still make a small crater beneath her feet from being pushed back. Her giant hand was durable, but teeth marks would be slightly visible, and if she missed she wouldn't be able to fire again, but how does one miss at this range?!
[20:42] Scene Wraith's teleporting again throws the mass of dinos off, some of their swipes and bites catching others before they can pull back, and her slash easily hacks off the next raptor's tail, the head wound bleeding profusely as it only keeps upright for a few more seconds. Sparks' beam sweeps across the battle line, the vines in the ground, not attached to the dinos, and not seeming to take any damage from the blast, but a few of the small dinos get burnt up in the edges of the sweep and the trike charge gets slowed down as they use their skull plates to shield from it. Katy's second shot directly impacts one of the trikes, ripping holes through the plate and into its skull, that dino staggering down and roaring in pain, though still moving. Limly's punch slams into what feels like a solid metal wall when she hits the trike, sending the dino staggering sideways a bit but not showing any direct damage. The tentacles, however, seem to be quite effective, as all the dinos caught up in them begin thrashing and te
[20:42] Scene: tearing at the constructs to try breaking free. Unit 3's shot fires into the spino's throat, the beast staggering and rearing back from the impact, seeming to wheeze for breath. The giga gets up to the front line now and immediately goes for a 75 ton bite on Unit 3 as it tries to move through towards the others. Limly's spino slams its tail into the ground, sending a shockwave through the area with immense force at the impact point, but dissipating as it spreads.
[20:46] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) moves rapidly, seemingly at some unheard cue, to get out of range of the tentacles. She'd go for one of the big trikes and teleport in, attempting to bite into its leg and rip out its hamstring, looking to cripple it before it could cause any more damage.
[20:48] Sparks grunts and mutters to herself "Right, too easy..." swinging her cannon around, choosing a new target, loading combat data from previous engagements while her Iridium keeps the tactical map updated for everyone. Keeping it on beam mode to avoid collateral damage she scans for a new target, firing on a new dino blasting, another crimson beam of destruction slamming out into one of the lrge rear targets, burning towards it's spine
[20:50] Katy finds herself a few meters back on the ground, everything hurting, blood dripping from her nose, her weapon lying on the ground in front of her. Trying to suppress the pain, she would grab her rifle and now notice that the trike was still up and in action "For fucks sake, these grenades are supposed to take out an APC." she would reload and again try to get down on the ground an into a better firing position, targeting the already once hit trike and fire another shaped-charge grenade, this time will aimed and if possible directly into an exposed eye to detonate the brain out of the oversized lizard.
[20:58] Killer Queen didnt even feel the shockwave it dissipated along the same skin tight field energies compounded to what was already there the aura growing noticeably from it her grin grew more sadistic she wasnt ready to burn into her stored power yet after the last attack it might seem she had turned her focus to the trike since she wasnt really trying to move very must from her current spot the tentacles didnt prevent her or anyone not moving around inside from acting normally turning the fight between her and the dino in front of her into a slugging match which she was more than happy to start but she readied an attack letting him come to her to strike. making him do all the work....
[21:06] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 steps up in front of Katy, and raises her weapon. she tracks where the redhead is aiming and fires her beam cannon in the same target in the hope that focusing fire will help take it down..
[21:06] Unit 3 was somewhat displeased with the effect her mac round had, "Charging Magnetic accelerator, Initi-" The giga came down on her and bit her arm off as she spun for a swipe of her own, the sword dropped to the ground as her arm seemingly vanished from sight, "Error..." She didn't hesitate as her big hand balled up and hardened when she swung it at the gigas face! "Requesting backup from Command, Error Command is not responsive! Damage to right arm irreparable!" If her giant fist of glittery lights and cuteness could make contact with the gigas face, it would electrify for an added kick! Though the impact alone would be enough to knock her back after the punch....
[21:15] Scene Wraith's bite is much less effective against the trike, her teeth barely even able to press the thick hide in, much less break it. Sparks' beam blasts into the back of the giga, searing a hole a short way into its body before the energy dissipates. Katy and Celes's shots on the injured trike blast out its eye and mouth, the beast slumping and going still. Unit 3's punch easily connects with the giga's head before it can pull back, sending it bouncing back upwards with a low crack of fracturing bone in the jaw, drawing out another ground-shaking roar of pain this time. The giga spins around, trying to bat the robot girl away with its tail now, while the spinos recover their footing and both advance on their opponents again. The remaining trikes start trudging forward through the field of tentacles slowly, trying to get into range to resume their attacks
[21:17] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) leaps up and over the trike, moving along its back in a quick teleport, trying to eviscerate the back of its neck with rapid and strong slashes, trying to not so much open it up in one hit, but deliver a flurry of strikes, ripping the flesh apart as she essentially burrowed into its neck unless stopped in her attack.
[21:21] Sparks scowls and fires again, targetting the same point trying to hit the same spot and burrow in deeper and hit vitals, like spine
[21:26] Katy sighs in relief the moment when one of the trikes finally seems to be neutralized. Smearing some blood from her nose she would get up, starting to change mag another time "Done to five rounds of shaped charge ... slowly fall back and try to focus fire on the big one now ... it needs to be taken out NOW." she speaks and would try to move into a better firing position, not taking any shots this round of combat.
[21:35] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) was somewhat ready now to really give the dino a thrashing now that it had done all the work of getting close ducking his head a bit to upper cut against his long throat now that they was starting to get out of the area of her black tentacles limly got serious throwing a total of 50 tons, 15 from her strength and another 35 from her reserves. an focused explosion of raw energy like a shaped charge attempting to take it out in one good hit.
[21:36] Unit 3 is swatted! She goes flying as shes actually lighter then a combat cyborg with fortress armor, but heavier then an average car... She skids and activates her boots to stop sliding, "Initiating long range combat, Initiated activating Fortress, Error, melee capabilities limited, Warning! multiple targets detected." Her giant hand formed around her body as the thumb and pinky telescoped into the ground for added support, "Initializing Magnetic Accelerator Cannon, Charging, 100% charge, Firing, Fortress mode active Charging..." The middle fingers of her massive hand merged into a huge barrel, electricity arched along the barrel and the area around her seemed to darken for a moment, as the Spino charged her position she held her ground and fired a spectacular black line at it, 2ft across and about 3ft long, the projectile was fired at mach 22, the recoil forced her back as the round raced towards the Spino... A little overkill never hurt anyone, "Error, Power reserves low." The sheer force of a near miss had
[21:36] Unit 3 enough force to tear steel, the punch through would be guaranteed as she put everything into this attack, of course putting everything into it meant she was going to be pretty useless after, stupid Android...
[21:36] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: Understood. Tactical weaponry has been authorized. " There was a bright light that formed around her and grows When it dies down a massive form is revealed She turns and begins to advance on the giga.
[21:43] Scene Wraith's slashes slice slightly in, but even with the repeated series of cuts it's slow process to actually get to anything vital, and the trike begins bucking like a bronco to try throwing her off. Sparks' second shot digs deeper, doing some damage to the spine this time, but not severing it, the beast incredibly resilient. Limly's charged punch slams into the spino's throat hard enough to collapse it, sending the dino tumbling down backwards as it begins to suffocate. Unit 3's full blast rips a massive chunk out of the charging spino, blood and gore spilling out from it as it collapses as well, tail flailing one last time in search of revenge. The trike that isn't busy trying to throw Wraith breaks free of the tentacles and makes a charge for Sparks and Katy, while the giga takes in its wounds and the situation, and decides to retreat, seeming to just suddenly disappear
[21:47] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) was not making progress on the dino's neck. She was ready to teleport away to Katy's problem and then saw the trike heading towards Katy and sparks "Incoming!" she shouts and hops up, running along the critter's back and jumping down, trying to shove her claws in and rip out its left eyeball. If successful, she'd try and move grabbing the horns tight with her claws to rip out the right eye, looking to blind it
[21:51] Katy just arrived at her desired new firing position, distracted on her coms for a moment "Yeah .. whatever it takes, CELES ! Get that pressure from us ..." only to be shocked the second she was returning her attention to the battlefield via scope, because all she would see was a this giant horn "Damn, i'm fucked ..." she groans, barely able to react to the pending impact of the trike, and in her panic she would fire the XM rifle at almost point blank, the barrel roughly pointing towards the dinos direction. Katy's only hope was now that the pushback of a shot would push her out of the beasts way ...
[21:53] Sparks blinks "...the hell? how does something that big vanish?" marking on her padd for intensive scans, and widening the search grid looking for it or where it went, cannon dark for the moment as it charges, though apparently it seems more interested in Katy, she goes low andprone, her coat rippling and turning green hued to blend in a bit with the grass and stay out of sight, maintaining tactical feed to the others as she searches for signs of how the gigas vanished
[21:59] Killer Queen smirked a bit watching the one in front of her fight against a collapsed throat letting it choke to death it freed her up to wade through the tentacles pushing out of the area leaving anyone stuck in it it took the round to pull her self free of it now that she intended to move in the field the last of her Sin energy powering one last spell at the sudden disappearance of the dino pink aura overtook her eyes giving her a kind of sight beyond sight for 5 rounds (( extremely heightened awareness to allow her to see things that would otherwise not be visible not wanting to let it get away if at all possible however this drained the last of her magic the magic circle flickering a few times before going out, the spells she had active would remain active till duration but she was dry magicly speaking.........
[21:59] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 turned to the trike heading after KAty as Sparks seems to have taken steps. She heaved her sword at the trek end over end a the trike. In case that wasn't enough, she fired her jumps and went into a sprint straight at the trike with the intent of tackling it away from Katy,
[22:01] Unit 3's power reserves were dangerously low... She slowly reverted back to her humanoid shape as the tail smacked her, she was fliung to the ground and sluggishly moved to stand up, "Error Command unresponsive. Error..." Her voicebox stopped working to conserve energy at that moment, trying to get back to the battle in the most pitiful way possible, limping and using her big hand like a third leg to keep her balance!
[22:06] Scene Wraith manages to cling on and blind the rear trike, which starts flailing around wildly now at anything nearby. Katy's shot blasts her back a little and staggers the other trike for a moment, buying time for Celes to rush over and finish it off. True sight wouldn't reveal any sorts of illusions or manipulations, though Queen would now see the energy flows from the vines to the still-living dinos. Sparks' scan would show no sign of the giga, but there would be one anomaly at the edge of the scan radius, a very small life signature moving well over mach 5 away from the battlefield. The small dinos are still struggling against the tentacles, trying to make progress at ripping them apart
[22:09] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) licks her lips as the chaotic dino spins off. She grins and digs her claws in deep, trying to pierce into the creature's skull and its brain, looking to kill it off by digging through its eye socket, holding tight to it as it bucked around. Any time it threw her off, she'd teleport right back, tail wrapping around a horn to allow her to dig at the eye socket, ripping out flesh and matter to try and puncture the brain and kill it off
[22:10] Sparks frowns, saving the data and resuming her monitoring and tactical readout to the group, her cannon charging the next shot as she remains in camouflage
[22:11] Killer Queen turned her attention to the little ones now charging at the one closest to the edge wanting to get in one last good hit before her buff dispersed throwing a good 15 from physical then the last 10 of what she has absorbed for a total of 25 tons at the poor thing not really wasting so little on the trike because she already knew it wouldnt make much of a dent in its armor and Wraith had that totally in hands.... " If you want any of these alive you better get some kind of containment because this spell isnt going to last much longer and we cant wrap it up by then they will run or we will have to kill them!"
[22:12] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 looks to Katy. " One unit moving away at high speed. " She looks to Katy. " Do you want me to chase it ?"
[22:16] Katy ends up on her bum a few meters away, trying to roll sideways and gain some more distance until CELES intervenes and kills the trike "Good timing !" she barks out, then dedicates her attention to the remaining targets "No, we need to regroup ... unless our Vanguard 'friends' order us to assault the nest right now." she informs CELES.
[22:17] Unit 3 had gotten as far as she could, her power cut out and her vision flickered as she collapsed to the ground at the mercy of anything in the area, though her repair protocols would activate and begin fixing the sparking mess that was her arm, nanites moving from her big hand tothe arm, repair was slow though, too slow....
[22:18] Scene it takes several tries for Wraith to pierce through, the skull too hard for her to damage, and seeming to regenerate as well, but eventually a strike goes down the ocular nerve and puts down the last of the trikes, leaving only the tangled raptors and coels left
[22:22] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) grins as he finally drives through enough to put down the trike. hitting the ground and rolling. She stands up and looks around, teleporting over to Limly and crouching low, baring her claws and teeth, growling loudly as she stares down the remaining raptors, wanting them to give her a reason to rip them all apart
[22:24] Katy hurries forward to the collapsed shocktrooper unit, barking out "MEDIC ! ... Uuh- ... Engineer ! Requesting emergency evac for the wounded ... " she would try to kneep down beside the inactive ally, trying to support the cleaning up of those remaining raptors by firing one or two well aimed headshots.
[22:27] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) looked down at Wraith with a smirk.... " keep an eye on them im going to check something out.... " Limly looked over at one calling in for the medic... " How about you calll in somebody to pick up a few raptors too im pretty sure the city wanted one or two to study.... she finished up by going around them to find the source of that energy and snagging a sample pretty sure she knows one or two people that would be interested in it....
[22:28] Sparks rises slowly, coloring returning to normal, cradling her cannon a shot ready as she watches the mop-up, tapping controls summoning Iridium to descend smoothly from the sky to a lower hover, compartments opening, showing some emergency first aid and repair supplies and empty bays for samples...
[22:29] Unit 3's nanites surged towards Katy... When or if they made contact they'd recoil and not devour her, searching for metal or other materials to speedup the repair process...
[22:31] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 crosses her arms and looks down to the unit. " This unit is defective and - " When the unit's nanites surge for her ally, in an eye blink, Celes pulls her smg and peppers what's left of the unit with cryo-rounds
[22:35] Scene the Vanguard pilot makes her way up, pulling out a more pistol-sized firearm and firing electrical blasts to subdue two of the smaller dinos "Go ahead and finish the others off, we can't bring more than this back anyways" [22:35] Katy wrinkles her nose in disgust the moment she notices her empty shells getting devoured by what might be a nanotechnological reaction, and Katy was a horrible nanophobe ! She would try to jump away from the contaminated unit, only to witness CELES already trying to freeze up the nanite threat.
[22:36] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1 looks to Katy. " Are you allright? "
[22:36] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) looks around at Celes "get that giant mech suit back, we could use it to carry some of these off" she states and licks her lips, seeing Unit 3 and shaking her head as she moves in quick, trying to launch at Katy and teleport her out of range of the nanite swarm
[22:37] Unit 3's nanites reacted to the gunfire by absorbing the bullets defensively, the body took the damage but didn't react as the nanites formed back into her big hand... It was clearly not safe to repair right now!
[22:37] Katy looks herself over and over, scratching herself here and there "Grraahg ! I'm not sure ... this is disgusting ! We might need a neutron purge to terminate everything here !"
[22:38] Sparks grunts, sweeping her cannon to the last pack of dinos and firing her just charged shot, a cutting beam of energy sizzling through the pack and smoothly slings her cannon as it goes dark, taking a container from the craft moving across the field looking at the felled beasts, scanning the corpses as a matter of course, but her goal is to capture a sample of the vine she had noted earlier
[22:39] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) looked around with a grin then speaking directly to Wraith... " Well this was a resounding success, if you dont mind a second pun, there is some real Sinergy that this power can create...."
[22:48] Scene the Vanguard agent moves over to Unit 3 when she hears the commotion, looking the downed robot over and checking something on her tablet "Seems this one has had some dealings with Lady N... since she's damaged now I'll call it in and see if we're tending to it"
[22:48] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) blinks and shivers as she hears what Limly says. She resisted the urge to chuck a boulder at her for that bad pun. She was currently stationary but ready to teleport people away from nanite danger if needed
[22:49] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: " I don't know how we're goign to get it back. if we put it in a transport it's nanites will start to eat away at it
[22:49] C.E.L.E.S. Valkyrie 1: " I guess we could skin some of the raptors and make a bag
[22:50] Sparks frowns unable to even effect the vine "Huh..." she settles for class range scans and subjecting it to a few different stimuli there, then makes a note to come back later for more testing and stands to move to the group
[22:52] Katy crosses her arms with a sour expression and listens to the Vanguard agent "Whatever you say, pal. I'm not goin' to touch that thing ... we should jus' stuff it into that alien nest and wait for the nanites to deal with all this ... biomass."
[22:52] Unit 3 was not a danger to humans, metal bits and energy producing materials were the only things in danger, so mostly just Celes who had fired at her, it might be considered self defense it the nanite attacked her... but they were programmed for searching, not attacking! The brass casings were snatched up quickly as her damaged arm seemed to grow from her damaged shoulder, but nothing else seemed to be happening, risidual gunpowder was not a real good power source... If anyone scanned her, it would be revealed she was covered in capacitors for absorbing electricity through outside means...
[22:57] Scene the agent calls it in to command, nodding a few times and then tucking her comm away again "We'll have someone coming in a few moments to retrieve her for repairs. As soon as the rest of you are done gathering samples and data, I can fly you back home"
[22:59] Sparks just listens, now that the mission is over her eyes wander over Wraith and Queen's bodies idly
[23:02] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) chuckles a bit looking at Wraith " I dont know about you but im ready to get back..."
[23:03] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) looks over at Limly with a grin "get to the chopper or want me to bring us out of here?" she asks with a giggle
[23:04] Limly Sivitri (limly.yoshiro) smirks a bit... " Home Jeeves the sexy demon
[23:05] Katy circles around the suspicious unit, like the nanophobe she is, while busy on her coms "Yeah, i'm waitin' here ... somewhere out in the woods or whatever ... my location ? Hell, do i need to do everythin' for you ? Ju's land here and pick us up ... i'm a busy person."
[23:06] Fallen Wraith (Talista Glas) smiles back at the group and catches sight of Samantha "note to self" she states so the woman could hear and gives her a wink. She then grabs Queen and teleports away to a place she knows well
[23:07] Sparks pouts a bit watching them go then turns to her team, giving a wave to sam
[23:08] Scene after a moment, a portal begins ripping open in the air, and then Mythos steps out, looking over Unit 3 and then going to pick her up, giving a small nod of greeting to the others
[23:08] Katy groans when she notices the couple to teleport away "Where is Zephyr when she is needed .... "
[23:08] Sparks headtilts "Why do we need Zeph?"
[23:09] Katy "Teleporting module."
[23:09] Samantha Iseli returns the wave to Sparks, having been collecting samples from various things once the fighting had died down. It had been pretty brutal, so she'd been trying to stay out of the way and block it out. The gunfire had her a bit unnerved.. She returns Mythos' wave as well and then goes back to collecting samples *
[23:10] Unit 3's nanites reacted to the touch and spread out defensively, touching Mythos gently and recoiling as she didn't have metal bits much to the nanites hardwired dismay... They retracted quickly, sensing that the area was still not exactly safe for repairs still... But the nanites were hungry...
[23:13] Katy sighs in relief when Mythos picks up the source of contamination and stops wandering around "Well, seems to be a long walk home. I'll be on my way."
[23:14] Scene Mythos carries the damaged bot back through the portal for repairs, while the pilot heads back to the shuttle, offering a ride for whoever wants one
