This Going to the Dogs Already - Hammond Operations Center

Postby CS High Command » Thu Sep 06, 2018 8:26 pm

This Going to the Dogs Already - Main Team
    Date: January 9, 110 PA
    Time: 1030 by end of post.
    Temp: 2°, Bitterly Cold with a wind off the lake driving fog into the town of Hammond
    Weather: Partly Cloudy, Only a light dusting of snow and plenty of ice
    Ley Line info: A little over a mile from the nearest Ley Line; 4 miles from the nearest nexus to the North and 6 miles from the nearest nexus to the south.
    Location: The Free City of Hammond at a warehouse.

The flight to a military depot and transfer to a civilian truck for transport to Merctown goes well. The team is in Merctown at their spartan barracks in the Eclipse Transport Company by the evening. It takes two hours to suit up, get the trailer situated with their gear and the truck and trailer ready for transport. It's 12pm when they are ready to set out. They load in the back and lay down to get some sleep or rest while their driving team does its job. They arrive at a check in point at 8:00 and send a laser transmission to a drone waiting at high altitude. This sends the drone zooming off and the truck moving on towards its objective.

The team arrives at a closed warehouse at 1030 hours. They are actually early, and the driving team backs up to the rolling gate they will drive into later. Video feeds from the truck are fed inside the trailer, so the team can see what is going on in some monitors built into a wall. Howlett is sitting at them, using one of the computers built into it with his headjack connection. Now is only time to wait. While stopped, the team takes time to get suited up in body armor and sidearms, leaving longarms in the lockers for now.

Their gear all says Spyre Tactical Retrival* and fits like a glove. Their weapons are not new, but are very well maintained. Same with their armor. They don't look like a new outfit, but neither are they beat up. Despite the unifying patches/logos, their gear is all mish-matched paint jobs, as one would expect in a small merc unit.

* Name of the PMC can be changed, but I needed something. Also make sure each of you has a cover name and completes your ICMN profile.

Conditions: None.

James sits in the modified cargo container, his body gently rocking as the truck makes it's way to the Free City of Hammond. James looks at the screen of his computer, but doesn't seem to be reading, just silently thinking. James takes a minute to shake his head and pinch the bridge of his nose, before closing his computer. "What's the ETA?" James asks knowing damn well how long they had left as a counter slowly ticked away in the corner of his vision. "Everyone get their gear squared away?" James asks looking at Egan. Though again anyone can see the obviousness of the comment as James trying to stave off a great deal of boredom. Sighing, James gets up and slowly makes his way to his bunk and lays down, but he isn't trying to sleep, just relaxing. Always like this as a mission gets under way.

Perception 1d100 = 10/64
JIC 1d20 = 14
JIC 1d100 = 27

Skill Monkey
Sensory Equipment 1d100 = 79/85% To use any of the available sensors to look outside
Military Tactics 1d100 = 27/75% To get everything, and when the time comes, everyone in the right place
Intelligence 1d100 = 28/52% To utilize what he sees outside to make their plans better.

Detect Ambush 1d100 = 69/45% To look for traps!


With a sigh and some obvious disdain, Snoopy--Tiny Tex for now--suits up in the Gladius light power armor. It's better than running around in his skivvies, but he's got 1000lbs of pure speed strapped to the roof and it just gets to sit their for the moment. Mach One, 20,000 foot ceiling, no wonder the Icarus is banned in CS territory. He smirks, thinking, When I'm flying that bitch, I hope my IFF works. Not that they could hit me, but getting shot at is never fun.

When the Captain goes for a siesta, an odd thought itself, Snoopy tries to put in practice all the things he learned over their extensive training period. And as much as he wants to do something, part of that training, a hard part actually, was just to let everyone go about and do what they are trained to do. He also doesn't repeat any of Howlett's commands. He watches the monitors, checks and rechecks his gear, and even reads anything handy. At one point asking Mane to have a peak at his Bible. Like the Icarus, no wonder religion is banned, he thinks after reading a few pages.

But that little voice in his head, the one he's been suppressing for a long time now pops back into his head and mocks him for that thought. So, banning something powerful is good? Something that gives people hope? Something that says 'peace' is a good thing? Is that it?

Snoopy shakes his head, rubs his eyes, then his temples all to rid him of that horrible voice. Snoopy believes with every fiber of his being that the Coalition is the best hope for humanity. The leadership is working for the entire population of the aligned states, and for the population of the continent too, despite the hatred of the disillusioned on the outside.

For a second as these thoughts flash through his head he doesn't want to give the good book back to the battle cat. But his better judgement says don't mess with the cat's trifles.

So he goes back over to the command station and watches monitors. He takes some meaningless notes. Doodles on those notes. He hums the Into the Flames theme song, out of tune.

Perception: 21% vs 1d100 = 57 (+15% vision, +25% salvage, +25% contraband)
JIC: 1d20 = 11, 1d100 = 16

During the trip, the heavy cyborg sits relatively motionless. When awake, he banters with his new team, the ice broken now that he's been properly hazed for falling asleep during the briefing. He taps his fingers rhythmically on his legs.

As the team gets their gear on, Drum checks his weapons. He'd been wearing his armor from the beginning. He checks the location of the rail gun and it's ammo so he knows where to go if he needs it in a hurry. He sighs as he puts the NG-P7 away. At least a few of us should have some heavy weapons.

The NG-45LP is put into it's holster. Drum grins to himself as he thinks about the grenades he has stored in his leg compartment. Well at least I have one surprise available. He checks the pistol to make sure that it hasn't been adjusted to be non-lethal. Maximum firepower, baby.

When the Captain asks about the gear, he finally speaks, "Doug Blackwood ready for action!" and then gives a jaunty salute.

Perception (72% base): 1d100 = 76

It felt strange to Mane to be in a vehicle with his old team and not be in the driver's seat. To pass the time he shifted restlessly in his seat and read from the pages of his Bible. Despite the much-needed distraction, he found himself having to reread several lines and verses due to his wandering thoughts. Consequently, he welcomed the change when the orders came down to suit up and get ready.

After placing his book on the bench, Mane went over to his locker and withdrew the large suit of Titan Juicer body armor. Though he preferred his old Coalition CA-6 EX suit (particularly the one with red stripes and silver spikes), this one offered nearly as much protection and would help him blend in well among the mercenary set. After he secured the final clasp on the armor, the big cat donned his new load-bearing harness and webbing. And in the tactical holsters on his thighs, he equipped himself with an NG-45 Long Pistol, and in the other his trusty old Q1-02 Stopper ion pistol.

Mane opted to leave off the heavy guns until it was time get out of the trailer. Strong or not, those things were heavy... not conducive to comfortable leisure.

Snoopy Toretto wrote:... He watches the monitors, checks and rechecks his gear, and even reads anything handy. At one point asking Mane to have a peak at his Bible.


Mane noticed Snoopy thumbing through his Bible. While the cat saw the disapproval written all over the man's face, Mane couldn't help but to comment.

"So far Psalm 144:1 is my favorite passage. It puts a lot of things in perspective for me." (OOC: The NKJV is the most metal version)

Mane took no offense when Snoopy put the Bible down. He could tell the man was conflicted about things. Especially those of the positive supernatural nature.

Once he was sufficiently ready for action, Mane reported his readiness. "Kitteon Snow, ready to rumble."

Perception - 64%, 1d100 = 51
JIC: 1d20 = 5, 1d100 = 45

Egan finds himself pacing back and forth inside the small enclosed trailer that the group has been traveling in. -Why didn't I request a scout cycle or something like it to run escort...anything to not be cooped up in a cage for so long.- Despite spending time on the roof of the trailer during some segments of the trip, the scout was clearly restless. When they arrive at the appointed location to disembark Egan was positively delighted, at least until word came back that they needed to wait some more. -Fuck.- Resuming his pacing, the claws attached to his armor pop in and out randomly as he moves back and forth.
James Howlett wrote:"Everyone get their gear squared away?" James asks looking at Egan.
The Doc's voice stops the manic scout in his tracks, retracting the exposed blades with a flick, Egan turns to face James. -I'm not the only one ready to get things moving.- With a shrug of his shoulders Egan says, "All good Doc, if not I guess they're S.O.L." after a short pause he asks a question that probably had already been covered. "Isn't this 'our' warehouse, can't we jump out and open the place up?"

Snoopy looked at Mane curiously, incredulously. He still flipped through the Emperor-forsaken book to the passage the cat had recommended. And much to Snoopy's surprise, he kind of liked what it said. Not the god crap, but the language it used was full of righteousness and sounded like a good fire-and-brimstone speech from the Emperor himself. Rereading it a couple times to memorize it, Snoopy hands the book back to Mane. He says, "Thanks 'Kitty', that's a pretty badass paragraph. I'm painting this part on my Icarus, 'Flash forth lightning and scatter them; Shoot out Your arrows and destroy them.' I'm thinking one line on each wing, big sloppy letters."

Mane nodded approvingly as he accepted back the Good Book. "I tell ya, I'm really digging this God of Humans you guys have. He's all about peace and love when you need him, and total bad-assery when it's time to get down and dirty."

Later as the team sat in the still trailer, waiting to disembark, Mane sat there in silent contemplation. Egan's fidgeting around with his mechanical claws made the big cat smile a bit in amusement. Oh, if only the man knew the joys of having the real thing on his fingers. Even so, if Even thought a set of sharp toys gave him real claws, Mane could grab a Zippo lighter and call to self a fire breathing dragon.

Mane blankly blinked at the query. "Actually, that's a very good question." he said in agreement.

Snoopy is just as bored as everyone else. During the downtime, Snoopy’s mind wandered a little and then he started going down the rabbit hole of his cover identity. So many fun deatails to be had! He thinks of Freeman, clearly a man who could get in character. This Bible aspect has him intrigued too. It is a symbol the CS doesn’t use, and if he can at least explain the quote... maybe use it to enhance not just his cover...but...hmmm...

“Hey Kitty, what do the call the preacher people for a bible? Just preacher? Archmagus of Jesus or something?” he asks Mane, still seeing if the nickname gets a reaction. “I’m just thinking about some details that would make our cover that much better. If I paint the quote on my wing, maybe someone else has a symbol—across, right?—and we’d call you the preacher. Or Archmagus of Jesus.”

This Going to the Dogs Already - Main Team
    Date: January 9, 110 PA
    Time: 1035 by end of post.
    Temp: 2°, Bitterly Cold with a wind off the lake driving fog into the town of Hammond
    Weather: Partly Cloudy, Only a light dusting of snow and plenty of ice
    Ley Line info: A little over a mile from the nearest Ley Line; 4 miles from the nearest nexus to the North and 6 miles from the nearest nexus to the south.
    Location: The Free City of Hammond at a warehouse.
Image
A vehicle pulls up and one of the driving team gets out and talks to the driver. Moments later the door rolls up and the truck and car both pull into the warehouse and the door closes after them. The three man driving team opens up the back door, and sets the stabilizers on the trailer allowing the 40-4th to exit. They also go about the task of unloading four hovercycles from their storage cradles atop the trailer. One of them, a large full conversion borg, walks up to Marcus and hands him a datapad. "Sign here." Once he does, he hands him a rifle carrying case containing the requested rifle.

And so it is that the five members of the 40-4th (Vecny having been pulled at the last minute after he came down sick) and the two members of the Recon team meet in the cavernous warehouse as the three drivers unload and set up basecamp. The Recon Team has intel to pass along, and the 40-4th has info to pass as well, but first things first - introductions.

GM Notes
I will PM the officers and Recon team with a rundown of information you have. It is then on you all, in character, to disseminate that to each other. PMs will be incoming over the next few days. Afterwards I will be setting up some narrative tasks to run down clues and track leads. Those of you who play on the Savage side might recognize Plans and Operations; you will all get a crash course. For now, meet and greet, and watch those inboxes.

Side Note, I will take clues (as requested in chat) until Friday.

Perception: 1d100 = 63/75%
Just in Case: 1d20 = 16/1d100 = 20
Conditions: Cyborg stuff.

James smirks as he listens to the others talk about all manner of insane subjects. Like children at play. James thinks, not derogatorily, just as a metaphor really. James eyes open fully when the truck comes to a full stop and he hears the cab door open up. Show time. James sits up from his bunk, and looks to the team. "Wrap it up and get squared away, we have arrived." James says quietly, but loudly enough to be heard by all. With that James stands up and grabs his long coat, throwing it over his shoulders. James grabs his rucksack with his lower right arm and turns to Snoopy. "Once more into the breech."

When the doors are opened James hops down from the trailer with little fan fair, as his bionic legs take the few feet without issue. James looks about and nods to the three assets near the door. "Galen, Lunk, and ____, It is nice to see all of you again. Smoothest ride I have had in a while." James says with a smile, before turning to the other two in the room. "I am Captain Howlett." James says before looking directly at Marcus. "Nice to see you made it out off that pit of a island."

Perception: 1d100 = 12/21%
JIC: 1d20 = 11/1d100 = 28

Casper pulls in after speaking with the man about entry. "Well, it's show time. he says to Marcus.

Parking the Adder, the climbs out and takes a moment to groom himself. While he may be geared for field work, he can still hear his mentor saying, "There's always time to ensure you're presentable." He checks his gear, re-situates his arm and watches the people disembarking from the transport. He looks for clues to their personalities and stores them away for later.

James Howlett introduces himself first, "Sir. Specialist Wilpepper, sir." Casper says quite formally. He pays attention to what Howlett and the others are wearing and how the move. He notes visible scars and mementos. He fills his thought with minutia but below that other things turn deeper in his mind. So, what is the Captain made of? Marcus seems to think highly of his capabilities. I can't imagine my being put with him is entirely coincidental. He let's his fore thought be busy with military rules, names and locations while leaving a portion of his mind for critical thought. It was a technique that had been hammered into him by his instructor. She made him hate her and then used psychics to find out what he was thinking and punish him accordingly. It was a brutal way to train but effective. Now it's just second nature.

He waits for further instruction from his new Captain.

Perception: 21% vs 1d100 = 16 (+15% vision, +25% salvage, +25% contraband)
JIC: 1d20 = 8, 1d100 = 41

Drum steps out heavy out of the trailer, his massive weight causing it to dip and bounce despite the stablizers. One hand is over his shoulder holding his duffel, he scans the space and walks over to the newcomers, off to the Doc's left. He lifts a hand as a wave. Shouldn't we be using code names? he thinks. "Hey, nice to met you guys. Name's Drummond, but uh, call me Doug." He watches the driving team go about their business, but turns back eventually. "So you guys got any leads? Sounds like there is some serious sh$t going on around here."

((rolls carried))

Casper watches the trailer bob as if some creature was plodding towards the door. Seeing the full conversion borg disembark, he nods to the man-machine as he approaches. He has never liked bionics and pitied those who have to loose portions of their humanity. The full conversion process has always seemed wrong to him, but with the way Chi-town works it's hard to say how the path lead here.

Listening to Drummond Casper nods, getting what he's saying. "Yes, well you can call me Codex if you like." he says with a smile, the name humorous to even himself.

((I'll have to wait on the leads until we hear what we know :D))

CS High Command wrote:A vehicle pulls up and one of the driving team gets out and talks to the driver. Moments later the door rolls up and the truck and car both pull into the warehouse and the door closes after them. The three man driving team opens up the back door, and sets the stabilizers on the trailer allowing the 40-4th to exit. They also go about the task of unloading four hovercycles from their storage cradles atop the trailer. One of them, a large full conversion borg, walks up to Marcus and hands him a datapad. "Sign here." Once he does, he hands him a rifle carrying case containing the requested rifle.

And so it is that the five members of the 40-4th (Vecny having been pulled at the last minute after he came down sick) and the two members of the Recon team meet in the cavernous warehouse as the three drivers unload and set up basecamp. The Recon Team has intel to pass along, and the 40-4th has info to pass as well, but first things first - introductions.[/ooc]


Marcus gives Casper a half grin as he excepts the datapad and signs, "Ah thank you very much.", he says to the borg as he hands back the datapad and takes hold of the rifle case, "Been waiting on this for awhile now.". Marcus sets the case down on the Adders' rear bumper, flicks open the latches and eyes the rifle for a moment or two before snapping the lid back shut and sliding it behind the passenger seat of the Adder.

James Howlett wrote:James smirks as he listens to the others talk about all manner of insane subjects. Like children at play. James thinks, not derogatorily, just as a metaphor really. James eyes open fully when the truck comes to a full stop and he hears the cab door open up. Show time. James sits up from his bunk, and looks to the team. "Wrap it up and get squared away, we have arrived." James says quietly, but loudly enough to be heard by all. With that James stands up and grabs his long coat, throwing it over his shoulders. James grabs his rucksack with his lower right arm and turns to Snoopy. "Once more into the breech."

When the doors are opened James hops down from the trailer with little fan fair, as his bionic legs take the few feet without issue. James looks about and nods to the three assets near the door. "Galen, Lunk, and ____, It is nice to see all of you again. Smoothest ride I have had in a while." James says with a smile, before turning to the other two in the room. "I am Captain Howlett." James says before looking directly at Marcus. "Nice to see you made it out off that pit of a island."


Marcus offers his hand for a shake in lieu of saluting, "Likewise Captain, I noticed at least one other from the island is with you still. I take it the rest transferred out or...?", he leaves unsaid the alternative. He turns to the other members of the team, "Good to meet you all, I'm Lazarus Long and if I might suggest, from here on out we stick to code only. This place is secure, but not 100% secure.".

Marcus/Lazarus nods in agreement to the cyborg, "Yes, we've got some leads. But lets wait until you guys have all your gear unloaded and we can settle down at the conference table before we get into that. Unless the Captain wants to things another way?", Marcus looks over at Howlett for a yes or no. The conference table Marcus indicates is just a long folding table with a few ammo crates and folding chairs around it.
