    Not sure what to make of this heathen mumbo-jumbo about peace, Wild Card chewed on some stray tendons in his mouth, spitting it out sharply.

    You'll all be delighted to know that my new dice set came in today! Red and black with gold numbers. Let's see how they like you guys!

    You quickly dive upon the grenade and snatch it off the ground. Your heart stops as you hear something metal hit the floor with a ping.


    Luckily it was just Garath knocking over an empty ration tin. Have fun with your new toy.

    As you stand you knock over an empty ration tin. You wonder for a moment why the ninja the ninja looks like his life just flashed before his eyes, and what the legionaire is doing on the floor.

    Originally Posted by Lexius87 View Post

    -if nothing happens then i'll go back in and take the flare guns and a bunch ofrations after checking for traps
    -if the grenade goes off and the dust has settled, loot shadow if he's dead, if he's not dead i'll just ask if he's alright
    You dive across the room, putting your hands over your head as you land and wait for the boom.

    Which doesn't come.

    Shrugging you dust yourself off and go collect some loot.

    Originally Posted by Psychedelic Lictor View Post

    Isha stands, turns his head, and spits a glob into the dust. That would be the one and only time he would run.

    Scars on the back are a swordsman's shame.

    Next time, he would stand. Stand and cleave this new foe in twain. Or fall. A feeling like cinders in his gut were starting to smoulder, lighting the blood in his veins aflame, a death jester's smile curved his lips: this was the kind of foe he hungered to face, the kind of foe that would push him to be the best. No more saps who didn't know blade tip from pommel. A challenge that he would see decapitated, or see himself eviscerated.

    But first, sake.

    -search for loot, focusing on rations, sake taking priority above all
    -also keep an eye out for any light armour that would be an upgrade
    -cash is a distant fourth - if it's not gleaming and pocketable, no dice
    Note: You already have light armor. Unless you wish to go into battle naked, then I'm going to have to add some penalties and bonuses.

    You search for loot and eventually come across a vial of bright green liquid hidden in someone's pillowcase. The vial has a removable top with a hidden needle to inject yourself with should you choose to. Otherwise there are no markings.

    Wild Card's human voice, marred with electronic growls and scratches pierces the air as the four-legged and the four-armed walked, hitherto in silence.

    "Those Simple Solution pricks. What kind of a name is that for a mercenary group anyway?"

    They kept walking. This machine body never needed to spit, but the cyberhound did now, hawking up some of the gore from last night.

    "We should kill their leaders and use the rest to replenish our numbers."

    The Vishnu stopped... pondered.

    "To achieve ultimate peace, we must have ultimate control. Very well deduced, wildcard, we shall see what waits for us at this mercenary group, and when the time is right... we shall... have.. peace."




    - Head to the Simple Solution group. Let's see if we can weasel our way in, for peace sake.
    Originally Posted by DrakonTheNightLord View Post

    Wild Card spat at that.

    "The time is what we make of it. People live, people die, that's life."

    The cyberhound squinted up at the Vishnu. So well armed. So cautious.

    "If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster."

    You head to the Simple Solutions headquarters, a two story building just a minute's walk into town. Inside you're greeted by a young man in a suit who seems confused but smiles none-the-less as you walk in. "Welcome! Not often we get other mercenary groups here. How can I help you?"

    The day will not save them. And we own the night.

    Content with my new toy I'll go see where that guy with the dog went, he seemed to know what he was doing.

    "My Lord! We're surrounded!!"
    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction"

    DrakonTheNightLord: This fucking post... priceless
    GrrHero: General 40 and Draken are reason enough to play this game. You guys are hilarious.

    Scowling at the horrendous lack of sake and evident poor taste in his former comrades taste in alcohol, Isha prowls out of the compound and looks at the legionnaire and ninja.

    'Aren't you curious at what hit the company so hard?'

    His face twists into a grin.

    'Such a strong force won't be satisfied with holing up in one place for long. And they wouldn't expect it. Why not scout out the area after they have gone and find what we can...there is usually a lot of equipment and loot lying on the battlefield...if that appeals to you.'

    Garath will stand and look at the other two in the room.

    'So, who are you?'

    When you get a job you don't complete your challenge, when you don't complete your challenge you get punished.

    Your 'base' consists of one large, albeit somewhat modified, house. There is no other building to check.

    You head outside anyway, enjoying the fresh air until your boot catches a rock and you fall flat on your face. As you grumble and pick yourself up you notice something shiny in front of you. As you pick up your prize someone starts to speak to you, you quickly hide the cash and stand up, pretending nothing happened. (You are speaking with Lictor and TFG. Do with that what you will.)



    Result: Yay money, +5cp!

    With a hop and a skip you head into town, using your expert tracking skill to hunt down your comrades! You end up completely lost in a matter of minutes. While thinking about your current situation you get the strangest feeling that you're being watched. You turn and see a group of young men gathered between a couple buildings, most looking at you without saying anything. You see a few are armed.

    You watch the ninja run off into town, and hope that you did not in fact see a grenade in his hand...

    You find the legionaire outside, laying prone as she examines something in her hands. As you speak she quickly hides that something in her pocket and stands to face you. Soon after one of the surviving vishnu comes out to greet you. (You are speaking with Lex and TFG)

    The ninja runs off into town, grenade in hand. The legionaire heads outside and you soon hear the familiar crash of armor hitting the ground. Peeking outside you notice she's fine, and another of your comrades is speaking with her (You are speaking with Lictor and Lex)

    The day will not save them. And we own the night.

    Casually start going back to where I came from, act totally normal, then take a few random turns and such to try and loose these guys... lest I need to throw my new toy away so soon.

    "My Lord! We're surrounded!!"
    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction"

    Garath will head out, making sure his weapons are stowed but ready, and raise a hand in greetings.

    'Good day fellows, can you point me to the good fight?'

    When you get a job you don't complete your challenge, when you don't complete your challenge you get punished.

    Damn you EB!

    Isha nods to the lady and sir before him, 'Power is found at the tip of a blade, honour is found in the arm that chooses when and how to wield it, and respect is found at the end of a barrel of sake, toasting those who have died the best way how. The power we faced is not in question, but their honour is, and there are still 45 spirits who need commending.'

    He turns on his heel and strides in the direction of the battlefield, alone or otherwise.

    And if he happened along one of this new powerful foes to test his mettle, then all the better. Become the best, or feed the worms: life was a simple thing for a soldier.
