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.

The Helicopter's right pod is blown right off, damage taken! It's still flying however.

:WolfMechIcon: Good work, I'm practically there.

Any responses to your ally?

:WolfMechIcon: I am here.

Bursting out of the remains of the train flies Dancer. Lupin is here, the Helicopter begins to back away as you slide to a stop.

Lupin has joined as your ally.

What is your first action?
>>
No. 1082757 ID: 3e7b21

Put it on the defensive. Fire some attention-grabbing missile(s) so the copter focuses on shooting that down (don't remain in the same alignment as the missile(s)).

Keep circling so the two of you are on opposite sides of the chopper. Gotta get that flanking bonus.

You fire missiles and begin to circle around, Lupin circling around the other way, his mech is close range so you'll need to keep the Helicopter distracted.

:GenericPilot3: Insolent cur!

What's your next action?

No. 1082939 ID: eb0a9c

Do nothing.
No, seriously. Confuse him, or wait for him to concentrate on Lupin.

Take a breath, have your mech perform any prep rounds. Dodge if he does concentrate on you.

No. 1082988 ID: 5ebd37

Your best bet is a surprise boost to slice of its tail rotor. Keep circling and if the pilot targets Lupin you'll have your opening.

Lupin responds in short order, boosting at max speed and slicing the tail rotor right off.

Anything left you want to do, or watch the thing crash?

You meet back with Tien and Leo at last.

:HawkMechIcon: Can't believe this KW pilot pulled it off.

:LionMechIcon: Kowalski Wayne relies on quality over quantity. They've been the best interstellar traders around for a reason.

:WolfMechIcon: Fox kept focused on the helicopter and kept it distracted.

:LionMechIcon: Excellent work there Fox!

:HawkMechIcon: Tch. Lucky.

Want to respond in any way to anything said? Or do you want to focus on completing the job?

:LionMechIcon: It's in tact and ready to be picked up. With that out of the way, I believe the mission is over.
:WolfMechIcon: Fox is useful, perhaps Wilson Scrap should work with Kowalski Wayne more often.
:LionMechIcon: It'd be good to start partnering and forming alliances, the ITA's only concern is handling an uprising. Our corporate overlords are going to start looking for any potential profits they can gleam from this planet soon enough. What do you think Fox? Your opinion, not your handler or your company's opinion, do you think you could work with the Junk division again?
>>
No. 1083466 ID: 8f9bc4

You were a little worried to go into an operation without having seen any of them in action, but they did good work, knew what they were doing, and you sure wouldn't mind running into them again.

You inform them they were an unknown but they have proven themselves useful and capable. You'd have no issue working with them in the future.

:LionMechIcon: That's good. Wilson Scrap will extend a olive branch to Kowalski Wayne Mercantile at some point.

:HawkMechIcon: Not really your call to make there Leo.

:LionMechIcon: I'll at least recommend it, alliances are going to be important.

:HawkMechIcon: The newbie hasn't even been on this planet that long, I bet they don't even know the full extent of all the corporations involved!

:LionMechIcon: Easy enough to handle, just gotta get their info from their Handler or any public terms. For now, mission complete.

Anything left you want to say or are you ready to call Hannibal?

We'll be eagerly awaiting the juicy details on that mech. Time to head home.

The mission is over, you decide to radio in to your handler.

:HandlerIcon: Good to hear from you 637, the mission was a success I see. Pack it up and bring it home, we have a bit of time but this has had a few more ripples. The Old Man might want to talk to you about this.

The Old Man, well that's ominous.

You return to the ITA Campus, your mech is in tact and requires no repairs, effective use today remaining undamaged. You have some time to kill, you can look at getting another job, inquire a bit about some information, spend some time training.

You return to the bar, there's a bit more activity at the moment, this just means you have more opportunities.

There seems to be a Mech Veteran sat down, judging by the amount of cybernetics he has going on. There are two other pilots at a standing table idly talking. The Bartender is eying you. And interestingly, a simian in a suit at another table with a bottle of a heavy whiskey.

Who will you talk to first?

"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

>>1084489
: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.

This just screams 'alien tech brainwashing'. You're worried about that falling into the corporations' hands; they wouldn't be able to resist using it on each other until the whole corporate sector brainwashes itself into believing its purpose is to torture babies.

You point out the potential for brainwashing.

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

>>1084731
: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.

You've been looking into getting a 'virtual' tail, a hologram mixed with a USB port so you can jack yourself into your mech's targeting systems with your butt.

A new eye would be nice. Chat about the available models, and what about that veteran over there? He's got some pretty fancy eye tech, but it looks a bit too flashy.

:BartenderMech: Oh that's Jax. He's some big shot veteran pilot with Royale Armories. Part of their Steel Commandos unit, he's... mostly replacement parts at this point. If you wanna talk cybernetic parts, nobody more knowledgeable than somebody probably about 80 percent replacement parts.

You'll remember that. Anything else you want to ask, or do you want to focus on finding someone to talk to about the companies on the planet?
