Clark IV, a world under fire.

The Interstellar Transit Authority currently holds the planet under martial law. The planet has seen a turbulent past century, guerilla fighters have been holding it hard and there has been no progress in taking hold.

Mercenary companies have been brought in to step in as a force multiplier, but they are beholden to no one but whoever pays the most.

Corporate entities have also begun to set their eyes on the planet below.

It is hell.

"Work went well. But how brainwashed are the royalists? I managed to utterly crush one by simply threatening to ass-rape the princess when I got my hands on her (as if that will ever happen), and he just mindlessly charged without using any of his guns until I cherry-tapped him to death."

:BartenderMech: Oh, that's an ITA bean counter, apparently his name is Seamus, and his job is to keep track of the Corporate Interests here. ITA may be largely free of Corporate influence but it still takes corporate taxes. And the suits are allowed here, Union-U serves

:BartenderMech: Ah the Dunarians. The original colonists of this planet a few centuries ago, they settled this world and got started on Terraforming. It didn't take and things went to shit, they've been trying by the gods they've been trying but it never worked.

:BartenderMech: But about 50 years ago they found a cache of alien technology buried deep beneath the surface, and have been unearthing every single piece they can get their hands on. Even outright declared war and said they'd conquer the stars in revenge.

:BartenderMech: So the ITA steps in and starts this whole damn war that we're going in. As soon as word of the Alien Tech got out, naturally your corporate overlords wanted a piece of the pie. As for what they're like, well it was a mess but this Monarchy got started about a hundred years ago and... people changed. You know how if you ask 15 people a different question you'll get maybe 3 opinions on something? Here if you ask 100 people different questions on something you'll only ever get one opinion. There are rumors and conspiracy theories about it.

You question how old the Bartender is.

:BartenderMech: I've got access to good medical tech, the prosthetic hand is just because I got a fondness for old stuff. Like people who still wear glasses despite being able to easily correct that.

:BartenderMech: Wouldn't be anything new, so many corporate entities have been trying to get their hands on it.

:BartenderMech: This old thing? It's a 5th generation armstrong model, really old stuff.

You can tell, that model went out of date 70 years ago.

:BartenderMech: I do think they do tail models, there might be an outfitter somewhere nearby. Want a replacement tail huh? You'd probably want a Kit-19, then again judging by the work you have, maybe you'd want a Kiroshi or something just to see in stereo once more.

Heck if you know, but money is your best guess, you're indentured to KW after all. The technology from this planet is gonna fuel so many industries, KW wants to stake their claim while they can.

You could tell him that at least Kowalski-Wayne is a good honest corporation that always supports the IPA. You're sure you never give him any trouble at all.

Hopefully that gives him a chance to vent about it, letting you learn more about the company you uh... have no memories of joining.

No. 1085704 ID: 8f9bc4

>>1085690

Or or better idea. Remark on how coming here, you were immediately deployed to assist IPA forces under attack. Like, your landing pod fired as soon as your freighter exited drop. You don't know exactly why, but you're pretty sure that means KW and the IPA are on the same page, if the IPA isn't outright employing them (employing you). He might like that reassurance, seems like troublesome corporate involvement in this is heavy on his mind.

You bring up you don't remember much, just that you work for Kowalski Wayne Mercantile. You were just brought in via drop and fired at the planet.

:SeamusIcon: Oh, one of the KW Indentured huh? Rough deal. Guess you don't know much about the companies then.

:SeamusIcon: Kowalski Wayne is one of if not the biggest interstellar trading and freight company across colonized space. You want something delivered in a good time frame as well as in the best condition possible? You go for them, the costs are just intense especially the further out on the rim you are. So you'd probably be in their "Courier" division of Mech Pilots, delivering results.

:SeamusIcon: See all the major companies have their own little names for their "private security" departments. The Couriers of KW are one such example, which means you're probably an Indentured because you got hit with some high quality augments to enhance your mech piloting. Good news is there's an out, and your Handler knows it, bad news is that it's pretty damn high and if you've been sent to this shithole of a planet then they're probably expecting you to either pay it off here successfully or die.

:SeamusIcon: The ITA puts up with KW's antics because they have the fastest trade routes, so congrats you've got some leeway.

Well that covers your company, anything else you want to know about?

>>1085917

:SeamusIcon: Haven't heard anything like that, for one thing conglomerate interests aren't exactly "approved" by the ITA. If corporations are allying they're keeping that part quiet.

:SeamusIcon: As for Wilson Scrap itself, One of the oldest companies out there. If there's a major conflict with a lot of leftovers, they're the scavengers picking the pieces, garbageman of the Galaxy, but they more than cover any costs and have made a lucrative business out of it.

:SeamusIcon: The Junk Division is their own security force, made up of the okayest soldiers and pilots bought en masse. Wilson Scrap subscribes to quantity over quality, after all, quantity is a quality all its own. Get enough decent troops together and they can even take on the best of the best, losses will be incurred but it's more than paid for.

:SeamusIcon: If you've heard that somehow Kowalski Wayne and Wilson Scrap are budying up then I question the painkiller feed in your suit. Jeremiah Wilson the 15th, current CEO to this corporate entity isn't a big fan of "Allies", though the board may say otherwise.

While the Shareholders and the CEO are technically in charge, the internal board itself makes all the decisions, and they might have gotten tired of having hereditary decision making ongoing.

:SeamusIcon: Junk Division huh? There are a few names under that firm. Most notable are the Recyclers, Composters, Garbagemen, and Debris Collectors. The names are of course all euphemism speak since corporate entities can never just be straightforward with what they're up to.

:SeamusIcon: Best I can tell if you're a Mech Pilot, you probably met a team of Recyclers. I heard they actually got a really solid melee pilot recently, can you confirm if that's true?

:SeamusIcon: Oh and the others. Composters are their marines, get enough warm bodies and eventually your foe will be mulch. The Garbagemen are their assassination division, they think we don't know about that but we do. We've had to "Clean up" a few here and there. The Debris Collectors are their pilots for atmospheric craft and orbital craft.

He's a veritable well of knowledge.

:SeamusIcon: Listen, judging by those augs you've got strapped to the back of your head, your brain probably isn't quite right. Buy me another drink and I'll say everything I can about all the major corporate interests on this planet.

:SeamusIcon: In big companies that'd be Oroborus Heavy Industries. They're one of the biggest mech producers and they don't really Kowalski Wayne due to some... old grudges. Mostly over trade routes and some shady shit they did. Listen no corp is innocent but if you're doing something that makes the others go "no" in response? What are you doing? We still don't know.

:SeamusIcon: Smaller companies include Cain Electronics, they're more just pissy about the cost to use KW's trade routes. Small name big ego kind of deal, they believe they're worth more than they're actually worth. They haven't tried anything yet but keep an eye out.

>>1086675
:SeamusIcon: Would you believe that it's because I volunteered for it? Yeah it's a headache but... I kind of want to be out here, at the moment this shit goes down. I'm good at my job and I take pride in it. Somebody has to, and if Clark 4 is the biggest battlezone at the moment, if it wasn't me here it'd be somebody else.

That's admirable, to say the least. You'll have to remember this guy. Seamus, huh.

There has to be a reason this planet is the biggest battleground these days. The alien technology would be a big reason, but Seamus would probably be pretty closed lipped about it.

Tell him you only know to go where your handler points you; you're rarely given much information about what you're getting into. Is there anything you should be watching out for? What is everyone fighting over, and could running into it blind end up with your mech compressed into a 1 meter recyclable metal cube?

It's a new day, and you hit the Job Board.

:HandlerIcon: Good to see you're awake 637. No word yet on the new Mech Parts, but they'll be in reserve soon enough. Wilson Scrap is still testing them under observation of the ITA. Until then, let's get some jobs done. We can get two done today, so pick your first one.

Assassination - Red Mask
The ITA isn't the only one with Mercenary support, the Monarchy is paying off some top quality mercenaries with access to the Alien Technology they recover. The Red Mask is a nameless mercenary who may or may not be a legacy line of sorts.

Destruction - New Superweapon
Reports of a testing site for a new superweapon have been found, your job will be to enter in and destroy it. Simple, straightforward, worth the time.

Escort ITA Diplomats
There are points on this planet not totally under the control of the Monarchy, our job will be cover support for a convoy of ITA Diplomats attempting to reach to some of the smaller governmental bodies not yet under control.

Test New Weapons
No explanation needed, you're being handed experimental arms and then dropped into an active combat zone for field data.

You look up at the wall and spot a few things, an open section far up the wall, an access door, two box walkers overlooking the area, and what looks to be pipes stretching off into the canyon. You seem to have options.

What will you take? What may be the most advantageous?

Pipes might lead right to the heart of the facility. That's probably our best bet
>>
No. 1087932 ID: b3eab7

Pipes are the only way in that still has a chance of staying stealthy. Let's just hope they're not full.

You follow the pipe flow, moving against rough crude byproduct of some industrial process. Something is being manufactured in here.

You peak your optics out to observe, seems to be a conveyor system of sorts outside, the factory is inactive at the moment and the walkers don't sound like they've moved.

From what can you tell they are unarmed.

What shall you do?
>>
No. 1088383 ID: 8f9bc4

This... doesn't look like an assembly plant for a superweapon. Maybe it's for super weapon-s, like a new kind of gun to strap onto a mech? I suppose you could just block the waste pipe somehow and hope that causes a huge meltdown but... you need to follow the conveyors to find more about the manufacturing process if you want to disable this thing. How are you going to get past the walkers though? And where are all the armed security, if this is such a highly protected superweapon project?

It seems the security are Siren model Box Walkers. This guys are automated warning systems as compared to the regular piloted models.

Sneaking past them may be difficult, how do you want to handle it?
>>
No. 1088518 ID: 29370e

Do we know how these bots act? If we splashed on the other side of the tank would they go look or would they just sound the alarm?
Could also try getting out of the tank in a way that splashes them while simultaneously boosting over them to land behind the conveyors. If they aren't smart they'll be busy looking at the tank while you get away scott free.

>>1088518

Yes, simple automations are just going to go where they see a disturbance. You need to direct their attention to one side of the tank, hop off the other and jet it.

You're on the clock. The bots may be dumb, but the AI managing them will eventually realize there's an intruder in the building. Sneak fast and don't be afraid to break stealth for a combat advantage.

You pass through the door and enter into the main section of the compound, finding a massive machine in the center...

You suspect this is the superweapon.
>>
No. 1089029 ID: 8f9bc4

Oh good. It is one single superweapon then, not a huge pile of them. Now, it's surely impervious to the firepower of a single lonely mech, but there must be access panels to get into it. Is anything inscribed on the side?

You're sure it's a superweapon, right? This is starting to feel like a setup. What could get Kowalski-Wayne in serious trouble, if you mistakenly blew it up?

Well, no time for hesitation now. Cast IDENTIFY on the—I mean, access panels. Find out what's inside this beast, and where you might be able to sabatoge it.
>>

No guards? Great so its a trap then.
Look for panels and hatches, any way to the interior

Literally stuff missiles in there and wire them to explode when they stop receiving your coded signal.

You run a scan to get a better look at the damn thing and it's a heavy weapons platform. Still in construction, the weapons, control units, etc, have yet to be attached, but it's very clear that just stuffing some missiles into it won't work. The armor is incredibly thick, and without any of the weapons attached a chain explosion won't do anything.

You'll have to search for other options but you should be able to find something.
>>
No. 1089192 ID: 619ac8

Well what if you attached the weapons? Look for a crane control room.

Any way we could durably sabotage its treads?

No. 1089207 ID: 8f9bc4

That is one massive weapons platform. You could fit a small city in there! It's apparently been constructed from the bottom up, so the top might still be unarmored. Probably no way to sabatoge the treads that would pass cursory inspection.

You search about the room and find what looks to be a crane operation booth. If you want to sabotage the weapons you should be able to do so from there.

You reach the room, but you find a problem, your mech is still too large to enter it. You could attempt to exit the mech and operate it from there, but this risks your being as you're far squishier without your armored unit.

What do you do?
>>
No. 1089358 ID: 5ebd37

How is your fine manipulation skill? Peel off the roof and you can access the controls. Maybe punching the controls will do something, or at least make a start at the sabotage.
>>
No. 1089360 ID: 8f9bc4

If you do exit the mech, position it so that it blocks access to the crane operation booth, with the mech's access hatch at the doorway.

This. That would both defend the booth and the mech.
