[20:01] * Gerhal * Thank goodness. Testing is done.
[20:01] * Gerhal * It's almost a miracle.
[20:03] * Siren * Just in time
[20:05] * Gerhal * Okay, bio break. Then it's clobberin' time.
[20:05] * Nacht * Get into costumes?
[20:06] * Rivet_ * Cool
[20:06] ^ Siren is now known as Ink
[20:06] ^ Rivet_ is now known as Talib
[20:07] ^ Nacht is now known as Sutherland
[20:07] ^ Gerhal is now known as Hydrogen
[20:07] * Hydrogen * Last episode:
[20:08] * Hydrogen * Our team has escaped their prison cell, and made their way to a small warden's office where their objective has been updated, and they've looted a small guard locker.
[20:09] * Hydrogen * While the team is divvying gunpowder candy, Talib discovers a masked Firewall tag somewhere within his signal range.
[20:09] * Talib * ,srtest 9 (analysis)
[20:09] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Talib, hits: 4.
[20:10] * Hydrogen * It's a coded tag, but you don't know what it's for.
[20:12] * Talib * what's it attached to?
[20:13] * Hydrogen * You don't know what it is. Your guess is that it's outside the warden's office. It has a boosted signal beyond 3 meters.
[20:13] * Hydrogen * (It's not signal 0 rating)
[20:14] * Hydrogen * It just mentioned it because it stands out among all the native traffic of the base.
[20:16] * Talib * *nod*
[20:16] * Talib * I want my sprite to try and decrypt it - as soon as I recall what it rolls besides the inherent CF
[20:17] * Hydrogen * Ink, Rob?

[20:18] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 3.
[20:18] * Talib * (ah, found it)
[20:19] * Ink * Wait, what are we rolling?

[20:20] * Hydrogen * (I was asking what Ink and Rob were up to while Talib does his thing)

[20:22] * Talib * (and that's two tasks down, I believe. One left)
[20:23] * Ink * (perc for general area. I'd like to get an idea of the layout of the building we're in. What floor, how many people are around, how to get to our destination, etc.)
[20:23] * LowBornFool * <rob> *Standing watch for the moment*
[20:25] * Hydrogen * For Ink: Your room is on the second floor. You have access to a stairwell that runs on the outside of this stone building. There are a lot of people on the base, but they are milling around doing the rounds and drilling. The sky is moderately cloudy. Thankfully not many people seem to be loitering around the anti-air missiles. It looks like those are all fenced off, including the...
[20:25] * Hydrogen * ...targeting radar that seems to be Elemental tech too. None of it fits into the base.
[20:26] * Hydrogen * You see a moat around the base, and jungle past that.
[20:26] * Hydrogen * You've got a quarter of the base dedicated to artillery guns, undoubtably pointed south towards the border.
[20:29] * Hydrogen * You've got a bunch of trucks in this other area.
[20:29] * Ink * Okay. Our current mission is to take care of the anti-air missiles, correct? Do we know what route we will have to take to get to them?
[20:29] * Hydrogen * And you've not certain what the bottom floor of this place is used for.
[20:30] * Hydrogen * It looks like there are three routes to get there. 1st floor, the truck yard, or barracks.
[20:30] * Ink * Okie dokie. Whenever the others are ready to get moving, I will relay this info and discuss our options.
[20:31] * Sutherland * ,srtest 3 (edge)
[20:31] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 0.
[20:32] * Hydrogen * (Am I missing anybody so far?)
[20:32] * Talib * Results of analysing the decrypted node?
[20:32] * Hydrogen * Just 1 word. Reinforcements.
[20:33] * Talib * Oh. I thought I'd accessed whatever the tag was attached to once I cracked it.
[20:34] * Hydrogen * It's just a tag. It's not even attached to something.
[20:34] * Talib * ohhh. well, bugger.
[20:34] * Sutherland * ,srtest 6 (board punch)
[20:34] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 1.
[20:36] * Talib * "Huh. Ok - so I found what appears to be an RFID tag left by our bosses. All it says is 'reinforcements', though. No idea what that's about. But if we can manage to get outside without being shot, it could be stuck on something useful.
[20:37] * Sutherland * ,srtest 6
[20:37] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 4.
[20:37] * Talib * "Anyway - what do you think - should I try and hotwire this killbot?"
[20:38] * Ink looks toward the killbot. "Sure."
[20:38] * Sutherland * ,srtest 3
[20:38] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 2.
[20:39] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Good luck."
[20:40] * Talib * Was the bot in this room, or somewhere adjacent?
[20:40] * Hydrogen * It was in that room
[20:41] * Talib nods and walks around the loader, looking for the flamer's fuel tank. "Did you find any tape in the lockers? Or maybe some rope?"
[20:42] * Ink looks in the lockers.
[20:42] * Hydrogen * Roll edge, Inkie
[20:43] * Ink * ,srtest 2
[20:43] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Ink, hits: 0. Critical glitch!
[20:43] * Ink * Oops.
[20:43] * Hydrogen * No tape!
[20:43] * Hydrogen * No tape is anywhere to be found.
[20:44] * Ink shakes his head at Talib.
[20:44] * Talib * "Oh, well. Rob - lemme see one of your grenades. Gonna try and give us some insurance."
[20:46] * Hydrogen * Rob, do you have some tactical knowledge skills?
[20:47] * LowBornFool * (Given that I never spent my knowledge points. OF COURSE I DO)
[20:47] * LowBornFool * (How many did we get for that anyway?)
[20:48] * Talib * (3x Int+Log)
[20:48] * Hydrogen * Roll that nebulous tactical skill

[20:50] * LowBornFool * 4 hits
[20:51] * Talib * (actually, don't SR grenades have kleen-tac patches so you can use them as improvised limpets?)
[20:52] * Hydrogen * Okay. Between Rob and Talib, you have an idea how this robot would be best deployed. As uparmored it might be, it's not going to last long outdoors on a military base with heavy weaponry. And a flamer is a short range weapon. But if you deployed it downstairs, it would be a kill house and nobody would get a clear shot for heavy weapons.
[20:53] * Talib * (excellent. Though my initial idea was to stick the grenade on the fuel tank in case I set the thing off while trying to hack it)
[20:54] * Hydrogen * (Since Inky crit glitched the edge check, let's say the robot doesn't have anything sticky either)
[20:54] * Talib * (aight)
[20:55] * Hydrogen * Rob, Ink, roll perception again.
[20:55] * Ink * ,srtest 12
[20:55] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Ink, hits: 5.
[20:55] * Talib takes the egg and puts it on as stable a spot near the fuel as he can manage, then registers the grenade for remote det. "Suggest we all clear out before I get to work."
[20:56] * Ink clears out.
[20:57] * Talib * "Pull the door to. If this doesn't work, we'll have our distraction, at least."
[20:57] * Sutherland * ,srtest 8 (stealthbot)
[20:57] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 5.
[20:58] * Hydrogen * (where are you piling up? Stairwell?)
[20:58] * Talib * Yeah. As long as I'm still in signal range.
[20:59] * Hydrogen * While you guys are piling up, a blonde man in NK BDU appears behind you, quiet as he can be.
[20:59] * Ink * Aww
[21:00] * Sutherland peeks at what they are looking at, "What an ugly robot." He says from behind them.
[21:00] * Talib * Does the guard's commlink have perms on the drone?
[21:00] * Hydrogen * It does.
[21:01] * Ink sighs and turns around.
[21:02] * Hydrogen * (You may describe yourself, Sutherland)
[21:02] * Talib says a dirty word. Several, actually.
[21:03] * Talib * (what permissions do I have?)
[21:03] * Hydrogen * You have security permission, as I recall. And you may drive the drone with Command checks.
[21:03] * Talib * Ah. Roger.
[21:04] * Sutherland * They see that he is of average height and build..almost too average. He has a slightly pale complexion but sounds slightly creole. His eyes are a deep blue and his hair is nice, blonde, and in a perfect Clark Kent style.
[21:04] * Talib * (I'd forgotten if I'd already hacked it)
[21:05] * Talib realizes nobody's started shooting yet, so cranes his head around to see their visitor.
[21:05] * Talib * "Uh. Hey."
[21:06] * Sutherland gives a slight two finger salute to talib and a smile.
[21:06] * Talib * (since I already had the thing, retcon the grenade, I guess, since it won't stay in place once the drone gets underway)
[21:07] * Talib * (does he look like his VR presence from our interview?)
[21:07] * Sutherland * (yes)
[21:07] * Talib * "Made it to Florida, then?"
[21:07] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Yo."
[21:08] * Sutherland * "I arrived late..but yes."
[21:09] * Sutherland looks around and then stoops down quickly to pick up a stray packing peanut. He puts it in his pocket. "What is the plan?"
[21:09] * Talib * "Where did they drop you in? We came from that way," He points back towards their route. "The N-kors have some anti-matter nukes outside. We've gotta put them out of commission."
[21:10] * Sutherland * "I was on a truck for some reason."
[21:10] * Talib * (did you feel asleep?)
[21:10] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Did it start to move?"
[21:10] * Hydrogen * (I am here. Sorry. What did I miss?)
[21:10] * Sutherland * "I believe I was driven in."
[21:11] * Talib * (bad metal gear jokes)
[21:11] * Hydrogen * (I didn't even force Talib to unplug his controller)
[21:11] * Sutherland looks at their equipment, "Where did you all get those?"
[21:12] * Talib * "Storage lockers. And they beat up a guard."
[21:12] * Sutherland nods, "Any rifles in there?"
[21:12] * Hydrogen * (Just the 3 AKs, and a shotgun)
[21:13] * Hydrogen * (and the pistols)
[21:13] * Sutherland * (He could use the shotgun)
[21:13] * Ink * (not my shotgun!)
[21:13] * Sutherland * (HA)
[21:14] * Ink * (What about an AR. There were some of those, right?)
[21:14] * Talib * "You can have mine. I'd probbaly kill us all if I tried to use it."
[21:15] * Sutherland shrugs and makes a fisty cuffs stance. "I can do Marquis of Queenesbury rules." The man bounces around a little and then puts his arms down and stands still.
[21:15] * Sutherland * "Hold on to it if it is all you have, Talib. I'll be alright."
[21:16] * Talib blinks and hands over his rifle. "I've got a pistol." He jerks his thumb towards the storeroom. "And that."
[21:18] * Hydrogen * (Who had the smartlinked AKs versus laser sights?)
[21:18] * Talib * (I don't remember you specifying a difference)
[21:18] * Sutherland peeks again at the armored drone. "Fascinating."
[21:19] * Talib * (Though I'd have taken a smartlink since I can emulate one)
[21:19] * Hydrogen * (okay, sutherland, your rifle has a smartlink. So +2 to hit)
[21:19] * LowBornFool * <rob> *took the smartlinked one*
[21:19] * Sutherland * (cool
[21:19] * LowBornFool * <rob> *because he's got cybereyes*
[21:19] * Sutherland * (cool)
[21:20] * Hydrogen * Ink has the laser AK then.
[21:20] * Hydrogen * Carry on
[21:21] * Talib * "We've got to get out in the yard to the launch installation. The killdozer will be better deployed as a distraction than an assault aid. The question is - where do we send it, and how do we advance?"
[21:21] * Sutherland checks the chamber and clip and nods to himself. "So what's the plan?"
[21:21] * Hydrogen * (remember, the simulation ends tonight)
[21:21] * Talib * "And Firewall maybe left us a present outside."
[21:21] * LowBornFool * <rob> *takes a lookg at the situation from the tactical answer to the question*
[21:21] * LowBornFool * ,srtest 8
[21:21] * Klokwerk_Emprah * LowBornFool, hits: 4.
[21:22] * LowBornFool * He's trying to figre out the best approach route using the killdoza as a distraction
[21:22] * Hydrogen * Insert into bottom floor offices, press Burninate.
[21:23] * Hydrogen * Flee into truck yard, then advance to missiles. If you are headed that way.
[21:23] * Sutherland * "There is a doorway down there that is traveled often by NK and non-combatants. You could send it in there."
[21:23] * Talib nods.
[21:25] * Talib * "Ok. Sounds like an idea. I can ask my sprite to do one more thing before I let it go. I'll maneuver it downstairs, then let 'er rip."
[21:27] * Talib * (that's do-able as a remote task, isn't it? "Go in there and kill anybody who looks Korean/isn't one of the four of us?")
[21:28] * Hydrogen * (There is a crowd suppression function.)
[21:29] * Hydrogen * (So yeah)
[21:30] * Talib * "The distraction should be taken care of. Now, how do we go about getting to the target?"
[21:31] * Hydrogen * Anti-air part of the base is blocked by a 2 meter tall razor wire fence.
[21:32] * Sutherland * "If it is outside...could we drive a truck into it?"
[21:32] * Hydrogen * It's the kind of fence that looks like it is as much for protection as to keep the base's own men off it.
[21:34] * Hydrogen * Ping?
[21:34] * Sutherland looks at the large man, "How is your arm?"
[21:35] * Ink * "Huh?"
[21:36] * Sutherland * (so they all know it is a fence then?)
[21:36] * Hydrogen * (yeah)
[21:36] * Sutherland * "Perhaps you could lob one of us over it?"
[21:37] * Ink looks at the fence, scratching his head. "Hm. Maybe. I could try."
[21:37] * Sutherland * "But then...if the fence is locked by just a lock we could shoot it off."
[21:38] * Ink looks around. "I guess there aren't any wire cutters around here, huh?"
[21:39] * Talib * "If we find the right comm, we might just be able to open it. Or someone with the key."
[21:39] * LowBornFool * <rob> "I'm pretty fucking good with 'nades."
[21:40] * Ink * "Well. Guess we'll find out."
[21:40] * Sutherland nods.
[21:41] * Hydrogen * Go time?
[21:42] * Talib calls up a status report on the drone and brings up a window showing the it's camera feed.
[21:43] * Hydrogen * The drone speaks, "Goliath Online. Systems ready."
[21:44] * Hydrogen * Despite all the bolted on armor, it doesn't really make any noise. Just the silent purr of electric motors.
[21:46] * Talib * (we do know Sutherland is a replicant?)
[21:46] * Hydrogen * (nope)
[21:46] * Talib * "Do you have a display link, Sutherland? I could use your help navigating to the target."
[21:47] * Sutherland * "I only have a Skinlink."
[21:48] * Talib * (does the commlink have a short-range interface?)
[21:49] * Hydrogen * (No, only the hallway in the prison block)
[21:49] * Hydrogen * (oh, wait, that's not what you asked)
[21:49] * Hydrogen * (what do you mean?)
[21:51] * Talib * (could Sutherland use it with his skinlink if he was holding it.)
[21:51] * Hydrogen * (Yeah.)
[21:52] * Talib * "Here, hold this, then." /me adds another user so Sutherland can see the camera feed.
[21:52] * Talib splits the feed with Sutherland and walks it down to the action zone, with his guidance.
[21:53] * Sutherland works with Talib after he slings the assault rifle.
[21:54] * Hydrogen * The goliath walks down the stairs to the doorway leading to the bottom level. The door opens, and a worker says something in korean until he looks up from his tablet, and sees the drone. His eyes gape in a universal expression of surprise.
[21:55] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Go brave Trolliath."
[21:55] * LowBornFool * <rob> *giggles a bit*
[21:56] * Hydrogen * Do you press the button?
[21:56] * LowBornFool * <rob> *waits for talib and sutherland to do their thing*
[21:57] * Sutherland glances at Talib, "Ready?"
[21:57] * Talib registers a third user and dispatches his sprite with the drone, "Keep them busy until you run out of targets or the shell goes offline. Then go with the blessings of the Builder."
[21:57] * Talib * "We're go for action."
[21:57] * Hydrogen * The man asks the drone a question in Korean.
[21:57] * Hydrogen * The drone answers by setting him on fire.
[21:58] * Hydrogen * The clock is on.
[21:58] * Hydrogen * You can hear screams from below.
[21:58] * Ink looks at Rob. "What do we do now?"
[21:59] * Sutherland smiles a bit and hands the vidscreen back to Talib. "Let's do it."
[22:00] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Head for the missles by way of the truck."
[22:00] * LowBornFool * <rob> *racks the slide on his rifle, and grunts* "You ready?"
[22:01] * Talib * "I'll keep looking for that Firewall hardware on the way. We may need to reassess once we're out there."
[22:01] * Hydrogen * Gunfire breaks out below. People are trying to flee out of windows.
[22:01] * Sutherland slings his rifle around into his hands, "Let's go."
[22:02] * Ink gets the shotgun ready.
[22:02] * LowBornFool * https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/550434_486352291399426_1900904721_n.jpg Girls are made of pain, as this boy finds out
[22:02] * Talib clips the comm to his belt and gets his pistol ready.
[22:03] * Ink * (hahaha that's awesome)
[22:03] * Sutherland * She's whoopin him!
[22:03] * Hydrogen * The team bolts for the truck yard while the soldiers and clerks flee from the goliath.
[22:04] * Hydrogen * The situation is chaotic, and alarm klaxons start around the entire base.
[22:04] * Hydrogen * Some men are running toward the barracks, and others for the artillery guns.
[22:05] * Hydrogen * You make it into the cover of the truck yard before you are discovered. Now you must find a way to cross the razor topped 2 meter fence.
[22:06] * Hydrogen * Roll your tactical knowledge skills, please.

[22:11] * Sutherland looks at Rob, "Any idea how to use those?"
[22:11] * Hydrogen * The node rating is unknown, but you get the impression that it is like the base grid guide.
[22:11] * LowBornFool * <rob> "They'll splashdown and the mechanism will be destroyed by the impact against the water."

[22:17] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Ink, hits: 3.
[22:17] * Ink * (unless someone else has higher)
[22:17] * Hydrogen * There is a piece of IC hiding on the node.
[22:17] * Talib * Status?
[22:17] * Hydrogen * Waiting.
[22:18] * Sutherland * oh..sorry
[22:18] * Sutherland * ,srtest 8
[22:18] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 3.
[22:19] * Hydrogen * Sutherland shepards the lot of you underneath some camoflaged tarps.
[22:20] * Hydrogen * A patrol of soldiers gallops by.
[22:20] * Hydrogen * More gunfire, and the booming of grenades from indoors.
[22:20] * Hydrogen * The entire bottom floor is belching smoke.
[22:20] * Sutherland * "Sounds like our boy is busy."
[22:20] * Talib * ,srtest 9 (analysis of IC)
[22:20] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Talib, hits: 3.
[22:21] * Hydrogen * Search and Destroy IC.
[22:21] * Talib calls up the video feed, audio off.
[22:22] * Talib * Also, what level of access do I have on the grid?
[22:22] * Hydrogen * Smoke and fire, Talib. Based on the feed, the goliath is crawling on the ground because its legs are non-functional. It will be overcome soon.
[22:22] * Talib * "Not much longer, I'm afraid. They've got they legs out from under it."
[22:22] * Ink * Aww, poor robot.
[22:23] * Talib * "Where to now?"
[22:23] * Sutherland looks about for signs of an escape vehicle after they deal with the missiles. Preferably something he knows how to drive.
[22:23] * Sutherland * ,srtest 4
[22:23] * Klokwerk_Emprah * Sutherland, hits: 1.
[22:23] * Hydrogen * Nothin' but trucks!
[22:25] * Sutherland * "We better get the move on."
[22:26] * Sutherland looks at the others, "Drive a truck through the fence?"
[22:27] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Good call."
[22:27] * Talib * "That'd be the most direct way."
[22:27] * Hydrogen * (30 minutes!)
[22:27] * Sutherland nods, "Anyone able to drive one?"
[22:27] * Talib * (is it like a real reinforced barricade, or just razor wire on top of chainlink.)
[22:27] * Hydrogen * (razor on chainlink)
[22:28] * Talib * "Sorta. I can make it drive itself."
[22:29] * Hydrogen * The feed from the goliath expires. Critical heat warning.
[22:29] * Sutherland * (is there a lock to the gate, or guard shack?)
[22:29] * Talib * "And the drone is down."
[22:30] * Hydrogen * Just a locked gate. No shack.
[22:31] * Sutherland * "So in that case, we should split up but be in the line of each others sight, correct? Two get into the missile area and two stay out here for cover?"
[22:33] * Talib * "I guess? I'm not sure how we'll take out those missiles in the first place."
[22:34] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Launch 'em at the ocean, just make sure the warheads aren't activated."
[22:35] * Talib * "Yeah, I heard that. I mean getting them to launch. So far, this has been some back-catalogue security-grade tech. I just hope the launch vehicle isn't also Elemental tech."
[22:36] * Sutherland says to Talib, "Could you launch them from here, or do you need to be closer?"
[22:36] * Talib * Is the launch vehicle on the grid?
[22:37] * LowBornFool * <rob> *keeps watching for actual guards, suspecting he may need to blam some*
[22:38] * Ink does likewise.
[22:38] * Hydrogen * Negative. You can see that it is tied to an Elemental tech radar system, and that entire system is going to be isolated from the base.
[22:38] * Sutherland * "The Koreans will be looking for why their drone went loco."
[22:38] * Talib * "It's linked to the guidance system, and that's on a separate grid."
[22:39] * LowBornFool * <rob> "Then fuck it we go in close and manually sabotage that shit."
[22:39] * Talib * Could I deploy the grid IC against the radar's node?
[22:39] * LowBornFool * <rob> *looks back at the fence*
[22:39] * Hydrogen * If it wasn't for the fire climbing up the stairwell, they'd probably already know. But fire containment is still underway.
[22:39] * Talib * Or on the base's emergency response node?
[22:39] * Hydrogen * The grid IC isn't connected to the radar node.
[22:40] * Hydrogen * You could try to redirect their fire suppression vehicles.
[22:40] * Talib * No. But if I link to the radar node, it would be, through me.
[22:40] * Hydrogen * Ahh
[22:41] * Talib * And I have signal 3, so I should be in range, if the radar node is accessible at all.
[22:41] * Hydrogen * It does not appear to have a wireless linkup at all.
[22:42] * Hydrogen * (I'm running out of steam guys. Do we want to pause, and finish? Or run until 11, and then end simulation?)
[22:43] * Hydrogen * (I'm sorry my job ate up the first hour)
[22:43] * Talib * "Yeah, I'll have to be close to make any headway with the system. It's either locked down or hardwired, and I don't have a tap."
[22:43] * LowBornFool * (Pause)
[22:43] * Talib * (sure)
[22:43] * Ink * (It's up to you guys. I can do whatever.)
[22:43] * Sutherland * (pause is fine)
[22:43] * Hydrogen * (I'm really sorry. I know it has been super hard to get this game started.)
[22:43] ^ Hydrogen is now known as Gerhal
[22:44] * Gerhal * My job has ruined 3 of my last 4 Sundays.
[22:44] ^ Talib is now known as Rivet
[22:44] * Ink * It's no problem. Work happens. We'll finish up next week.
