You are currently twelve kilometers above the surface of an alien world. You are falling. This is widely acknowledged as one of the worst activities to engage in while visiting the lower stratosphere.

However, you are paid very well to do it. You are a fall guy, after all.

You reach up to check the environmental seals of your combat suit, the thick goo of the impact jello suppressing trembling fingers. The techies at NeoLogos designed their drop pods with several principles in mind. The pods had to be, in order of importance, cheap, disposable, accurate, and reliable. Impact gel that wasn’t a crippling topological neurotoxin was sacrificed for the sake of cheapness. Should any of NeoLogos' employees be contaminated by the impact gel, the ultra-corp would be on the line for millions of credits in comp. That's probably why everyone they send down in one of these things is a contract worker.

An icon appears on your visor, blinking softly. Corporate wants a word. Probably to get that sweet sweet deniability should everything go pear-shaped. You click it, and a woman’s face appears.

“Hello HIPR representative squadron Zulu-Epsilon. Today you will be engaging in some high pressure head hunting via leveraging hyper-lethal vectors during the recruitment process. Your primary target for aggressive de-integration is the Kagokushi Genomics Division. In particular, acquisition of Dr. Tachibana’s employment is considered a high priority actionable item. Corporate prefers that as much Kagokushi human capital be reappropriated as possible; however, elimination is permissible to maintain market advantage.”

You shut down the Handler’s comm-icon, despite knowing it will probably crop up in your performance review. You have better things to do than decipher her corpro-dialect. You fiddle with your gun idly, attempting to dispel:

Your thoughts are interrupted by a basso rumble as the retro rockets fire, slowing your descent from “Fatal” to “Probably a few broken knees”. The pod quakes and trembles as another set of retro rockets fire. A synthesized female voice announces in your ear “Unexpected impediment to drop. One Seconds to Touchdown.”

“Wait, Unex-” you say, somewhat too shocked to properly process what the nice lady just said. The spine crushing impact is kind enough to clarify her meaning.

The pod door pops off with a hiss of steam, disgorging a whole lot of class A Enviro-Hazard and a mercenary clutching his lower back in pain. “Oh… Oh… owwwwwww… Damnit…” you groan, stumbling forwards. The sudden impact has severely disoriented you. You shake your helmeted head a few times, trying to dispel the coating of lint that seems to have ensconced your brain.

After a few more shakes, you are sufficiently recovered and decide to take in your surroundings. And surrounded you are, by dozens of white collar peons, all staring at you in shock. A moment’s pause before you shout “Everyone! This is a drop pod assault! Stay out of our way and you will not be hurt!”

Your helmet’s translator does it’s duty, relaying your message in perfect japanese. There is a long delay while everyone stares at you, non-plussed. You’re just about to consider the possibility that the translator is busted when a large middle aged man sticks up his finger. He waits for your acknowledgement before asking, “Hurt us with what, Mercenary-san?”

You look down at yourself.



FUCK! You forgot your weapons back in the pod.

Scurrying back to the drop pod you clamber waist deep into it. After a few minutes of frantic searching you hop back out, bearing:

I especially liked the lock-on feature (no retarded lying about dual-analog being anywhere near precise enough for an FPS) and the fact that the suit actually felt powerful.
In contrast to DUST, where your suit has less stamina than an unarmored human, despite your disposable body being supposedly vat grown for combat.

Also, drop pods are for pussies.
I actually recently saw some DUST trailers that are far more awesome than the main game. Like a drop pod that has the inhabitants eject a few kilometers above the ground, probably because dropping without a guidance system would be a retarded idea.

You clamber back out of your drop pod bearing an absurdly large revolver, the Smith & Weston Model 223 .50 caliber, and a tomahawk. Well not just any tomahawk. This bad boy’s got a tungsten-steel head and “Seismic Amplifier” whatever the hell that’s supposed to mean or do. All you know is that when the guys at the armory let you take it out for the night, this little guy completely obliterated your bitch ex’s engine block in one swing.

...Thank fuck you got off world the day after.

Turning around, you’re pleased to see that the crowd of office workers has backed away a meter or two from the now armed mercenary. You repeat the statement you made earlier, this time backed by some lethal implements. The crowd begins to file out of the atrium, some taking pictures and recording video of the crashed drop pod and the (Hopfeully) intimidating merc standing next to it.

As the crowd disperses you see some important looking glass doors across the atrium. You are only a few step towards them when a comm-icon starts blinking in your HUD. The friendly smile of your senior drop officer greets you as you click it open.

“Hey there rookie. Nice to see you made it down in one piece.”

“Sir, it was an unexpected landing Sir!”

“Hahahaha,” chuckles the veteran, “No need to be so formal rookie. Just call me Darius.”

“Uh… yes Si- Darius… sir.”

“You’ll get used to it,” Darius reassures you with a grizzled smile. “Now, I’ve commed you for more than sushi and whatever the hell else these Japs eat-” you hear a series of loud cracks over the comm link, followed by three loud blasts. “I ended up dropping right in front of a security patrol. Got my ass pinned down behind the reception desk near the front entrance like my kid’s old bug collection. Lend me a hand?”

The comm link shuts off and you consider your HUD. According to the stolen floorplans and tactical command, Darius is indeed in the main atrium, further back toward the entrance. There are quite a few paths to enter the main atrium from where you are. Do you:

>go up to the second floor and enter the main atrium on the deck overlooking the ground floor

Recalling the lessons you picked up during the Synergistic Confrontation Techniques for Enhancing Employee Performance in High Intensity Situations course that all the rookies had to take you decide that the best approach to this situation is a flank and destroy. Eliminate the security patrol while they’re looking the other way. You bolt forward and surge through the doors, barely opening fast enough to avoid clipping you. You sprint down a series of hallways, your HUD map leading you true.

Eventually you arrive in another large reception area behind the main atrium. You scurry forward and take cover behind a large stone pillar. You peek around the pillars and into the atrium. It’s a large open room with white walls and floor, although the clean and futuristic atmosphere is marred by bits of glass from a large hole in the ceiling. Also the scorch marks. The room is a long rectangle, maybe twenty meters wide and about fifty long. There are two lines of blocks of greenery, raised white walls about waist high containing classy gardens with the occasional demi-bonsai growing in the center, placed along the outer sides of the atrium, spaced about five meters apart. At the other end of the atrium is a rather haggard looking reception desk.

The Security Patrol is separated into two groups of three, one group is standing behind a garden block two meters the the right and three meters ahead of the door you’re looking out of. The second group is taking cover behind a block further ahead and to the left, about twenty meters away from the door. The first group is laying down a steady stream of suppressive fire as the second group sneaks forward.

Neither of the two groups has noticed you yet, too focused on shooting up the reception counter.

You open up a comm-link with Darius and quickly relay what your plan of attack is. There a momentary pause before the vet responds. “Ha! That’s pretty ballsy rookie. Just don’t go getting yourself killed just yet.”

Not exactly reassured by the vet’s words, you take a deep breath, steeling yourself for the assault. You sprint out of cover and towards the first group of guards. The reception area doors slide open with nary a whisper. Your feet pound against the white metal ground, your arms pumping back and forth. The Security team seems too busy firing their OMPs to notice the merc bearing down on them. As you near the guards the sound proofers in your helmet engage and God hits the mute button. The cracks of SMG fire vanish, as does the guard’s roared profanities, leaving them grimacing with comically open mouths.

You swing your tomahawk in short hacking motion, cutting only deep enough into the middle security guard’s neck to sever his spine. Obviously, this is plenty deep. The man begins to collapse, his SMG firing up into the ceiling as dead arms stop resisting its recoil.

The middle guard hasn’t even touched the floor when you bury your tomahawk into the head of the right hand guard. This time there is enough resistance to trigger the tomahawk’s Seismic Amplifier. The burst of kinetic energy detonates the security officer’s head into fragments of bone and sopping red hunks of flesh.

By now the last security guard in the first group has noticed that something has gone very wrong. He is part way through turning around when your tomahawk smashes into his sternum.

The Seismic Amplifier triggers again.

The guard coughs up blood before he drops to the ground.

You take cover behind the garden block.

I think it's worth it. Make sure to tell Darius that we're going after the second group.

Don't just charge them, use cover as we approach, if we don't see a good opportunity to get close enough to use the Tomahawk shoot them with our revolver or toss the Tomahawk right in their stupid face. Don't give them a chance to realize and respond to their suppressing fire suddenly disappearing. We have some momentum, make use of it.

Alright. So basically there were 5 DC checks. I'll break them down and explain the reasoning for each one.

>Run up to the first group
Rolled:15 DC:7

Not a hard DC, but most movement checks are very easy. The only challenge was not letting them know that you were coming, but the suppressive fire helped with that a lot.

>Tomahawk the center one in the back of the neck
Rolled: 20 DC: 10
A very easy melee check. You had the drop on the guard and he has very little armor outside of a FUTURE cuirass sort of thing.

>Tomahawk the rightmost one while he is still turning around
Rolled: 15 DC:15
A simple pass. Slightly harder since you just axed this guy's buddy in the neck.

>Eliminate the third guard either by tomahawk or revolver depending on how first two rolls go
Rolled: 13+5 DC:17 for tomahawk, 12 for revolver

This is the interesting part, and perhaps the key mechanic to this quest. The action chain. You see, when you tomahawked the first guard you initiated an action chain. An action chain is a series of actions done in very close proximity to each other. Every time you pass a DC check in an action chain, the amount you beat the DC divided by half is added to a failed check later in the action chain. So while you rolled a 13 here, there was a +5 bonus due to the 20 earlier.

>Take cover and assess situation
Rolled: 15 DC: 5

Simple cover check. Very easily passed.

How modded you are will be determined later. Right now I'm assuming some mods for the purposes of this tutorial.

Also a clarification since we seem to be at a tie, or close enough to one anyway.

Pushing the element of surprise require immediate action, so you cannot coordinate with Darius. It is a high risk high reward option

Comming with Darius is lower risk but also eliminates the possibility of an immediate solo victory.

Choices you make in combat will reflect on the MC's personality. Aggressive choices, aggressive character, etc.

Immediately upon falling behind cover several thoughts flit through your mind. The biggest one being that the rookie with the most impressive performance report will be starting off a pay rank higher than his or her compatriots. You attempt to spit on the ground as you rise up from behind cover, to seal your resolution. In all of your excitement you forget that your helmet comes with a face mask. Distracted by the slimey droll now dripping down your chin your first shot with the Model 223 goes wild, shattering a glass panel on the second floor observation deck above you.

The group of security officers turn towards the source of the gunshot. “Idiots don’t know jack shit about cover,” you mumble to yourself as you depress the trigger once more.

And apparently you know just as much about firing a gun, as your second shot goes wide, although not as badly as the first one.

You clench your jaw furiously and bring your other hand up, switching to a more supported grip. “Why the fuck didn’t I do this in the first place?” you wonder as you pull the trigger a final time. You don’t have time to see the results of your final shot, as you immediately drop back behind cover upon firing the last round.

A hail of bullets passes through the air you occupied moments previously. As you roll onto your back you open up the comm channel to Darius.

“Nice headshot you crazy motherfucker! Got their asses nice and distracted for me.”

Lying on your back, you slide three rounds into the Model 223’s chambers before clicking the cylinder back into place with a jerk of your wrist. That felt nicely badass. You consider Darius’ comm icon before speaking.

“Hey, Darius. You’ve got something that can lay down a bit more firepower than me, right? How about you suppress them for a change and I’ll flank and destroy.”

There is a pause before Darius responds “Sounds good rookie, nice initiative.”

Darius’ comm icon closes, but not before you hear him mutter “Goddamned thing, how do you modu-”

You wait for a moment before poking your head above cover, waiting for Darius to start suppressing these assholes. You see both of the security guards huddled behind a garden block completely exposed to you. One of them taps his buddy on the shoulder pointing towards you.

The two of them are about to bring their arms to bear when there is a series of “thooping” noises spaced so closely together that they sound like one continuous hum. The two guards, the cover they’re hiding behind, three or four garden blocks behind them, and the wall at the opposite end of the atrium all vanish in a haze of dust. It quickly clears, revealing a scene of absolute devastation.

You stand fully upright, your mouth agape, your revolver and tomahawk hanging limply by your side. You can only gawk at him as a heavily armored man jogs up to you, carrying a strange gun.

“Hey, sorry about that rookie. I’ve got a real hard time modulating the power output on these new fangled railguns. Didn’t mean to blow all of them to shit like that.”

“Wha- wha- what the…?”

“Didn’t mean to KS like that,” continues the man, rubbing the back of his helmet guiltily. “Bet you were going for the bonus too.”

“Ehhhhhh?”

“So, come on, let’s get moving. The other two actually landed in the right building. I won’t have Take Out getting all uppity just cause they landed in the right place and his rookie got the better review.”

Darius trots ahead of you, and you fall in behind him, still somewhat numb.

Also, since there's been a lot of speculation in this thread about the MC's gender, the MC is currently a male.

This is for a few reasons, in order of importance:
1) I'm not sure how well I could write a female MC biggest reason by far to be honest

Rolled 6, 3, 3 = 12

Briefly considering the comm icons to Elda and Lei, you decide not to open the channels. You don’t really know Lei that well, although the one time he guest lectured about explosives he seemed like a pretty nice guy; and Elda… well Elda is Elda and you’ll just leave it at that. Besides, there seems to be a bit of a competition between Lei and Darius. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.

You fall in behind Darius, at a steady trot as the two of you make your way to the Kagokushi genomics building, where Dr. Tachibana is supposed to have a corner office. “Eye on the prize. Eye on the prize,” you mutter to yourself. If you managed to nab Dr. Tachibana without the assistance of Elda and Lei that’ll probably look real good on your performance review. However, your eyes keep on wandering over to Darius’ railgun.

“Wonder if that comes in pistol form…”

After a few minutes of movement Darius stops, holding his hand up to order a halt. You are both standing outside of a tram station, doubtlessly leading the Genomics Building. Your suspicions are confirmed by the presence of another squad of security guards.

The Tram station is a wide and open area, with limited cover in the form of benches and a few ticket booths and security checkpoints. It seems to be an open air structure, with a canopy hanging above the station. Your map indicates that there is another entrance to the Tram Station about forty meters ahead.

As you look around the hallway leading up to the tram station you can’t help but notice an unmarked metal door standing a few meters back. You walk over to it and try the handle. Locked. Then Darius walks up next you and waves a bloodsoaked security badge in front of a nub on the door. A light on the handle turns green and the lock opens with a tiny click.

You look back at the large mercenary, who opens up a comm link with you.

Darius has better hardware - he should attempt to use his assault rifle and lay down suppressing fire - as he does so, we can sprint out into the yard and dive behind some ticket booths.

You don’t reply as you walk into the unmarked tunnel. The floor is concrete instead of the imitation bamboo of the hallways outside. Wires and cables line the walls in bundles while fluorescent lights hum dimly overhead. You hurry down some stairs and continue down the hallway. It takes a few minutes of walking until you come across a ladder. Deciding why the hell not, you climb up the ladder and unlock the trap door over head. The door slides silently back as you poke your head into the open air.

You are standing in the trench that the trams run in. The security team is standing a few meters away from the trench that your head has popped up in. They are facing towards the two doors on the opposite side of the Tram Station, talking amongst themselves nervously in Japanese.

You clamber up into the trench without alerting the security team. Pressing yourself against the concrete wall, you comm Darius. “Hey Darius? Door lead to a maintenance tunnel, just like you thought. I’m in a Tram trench about four meters east of the security team.”

“Good shit,” replies Darius over the comm-link, “You want to pull a pincer attack?”

“You scatter them, I wipe up the survivors.”

“Good call rookie.”

The link goes dead. After a few seconds pause you hear the distinct thooping hum that indicates Darius is putting the pain down. Before he even stops firing Darius opens up a comm-link with you. “I managed to gib the three in the middle, you’ve got one closer to you and two further ahead!”

You pop up from behind the cover, looking towards the two hostile dots that Darius has marked on your HUD map. Determined not to make the same mistake as last time you grip the Model 223 with both hands and fire. The first shot contacts with the security guard’s torso armor, shattering the ballistic ceramic into a thousand glittering pieces. Shit’s rated for semi-automatic caliber’s at fifty meters, not a goddamn .50 RR from seven. Drops of red joins shards of ceramic in the air.

Your next two shots at the other security guard go wild as the man stumbles away from his comrade. However, your third strikes home, tearing holes in both of his unarmored legs.

You duck back into the trench just in time to avoid a burst of fire from the final security guard. You wait for a few seconds as the man empties his clip into the concrete of the Tram Station floor.

The clunk of a magazine falling to the ground.

You take your chance and leap into action, vaulting over the trench. You sprint towards the final security guard, struggling to insert a new magazine into his OMP. Just before you reach him the man drops his gun and magazine, putting both hands into the air.

You look at the security officer, he looks at you, eyes pleading.

You consider him for a moment, then speak. “Where is Dr. Tachibana?”

The guard squints at you. “Who?”

“Dr. Tachibana, you know, like head of the Genomic Division?”

The guard merely shrugs and replies, “I am not sure, [ANTIQUATED TERM, BEST TRANSLATION: MY LORD]. I am merely a humble security officer.”

“Figures,” you mutter to yourself. You look guiltily at the security guard once more. “Sorry about this.”

You flip your revolver in your hand so you are holding it by the barrel. You bring the butt of the gun to bear on the security guard’s head, careful to modulate your strength as to avoid killing him. The weapon strikes with a hollow thud. The guard blinks at you for a few seconds before hunching of in pain, gripping his head.

“OYUCHU!”

“Aw damn, that was supposed to knock him out.”

You notice that Darius is standing next to you. The vet looks up into the sky before shaking his head. “Jesus rookie, knocking people on the head… if they’re out longer than a few seconds you’ve probably made them retarded. Terrible decision.”

In response to your unasked question Darius pulls out a comically small semi-automatic. He fires one round into the guard’s leg, and immediately the man’s hands transfer from head to thigh.

“Best way to handle it in my opinion.”

As Darius fiddles around with a computer terminal near the Trams, you pat down the incapacitated guards.

+1276 credits
+2 OMP submachine gun
+200 OMP compatible rounds
+1 Kagokushi Security Comm-link.

After looting the bodies you walk up next to Darius, who seems about done with the computer terminal. The huge man steps away from the terminal and faces you.

“Well, yeah.”

“Good. Killing a surrendered enemy… I’d hate to have to throw you to the HR department but that’d be some disturbed shit, ya feel me?”

“Shit… yeah… no… that wouldn’t be good.”

A tram pulls into the station. The pair of you board it. Darius stretches himself out across a whole row of seats, lounging luxuriously. You merely rest your feet on the seat opposite your own.

You are about to rest your brain for a few minutes when a high priority comm from Corporate comes in. Sighing you click it open.

Your vision is filled with a huge e-form. Scrolling around desperately you are almost relieved when your Handler’s comm icon appears in the upper left hand corner of your vision.

“Hey, you the jackass who shut me off, right?”

This may be the same woman as the one you ignored on the drop down, but she’s a completely different person.

“Listen dicktits, don’t pull that shit again. Just be grateful I don’t get to decide who gets the bonus payrank, alright?”

There is a moment’s pause before you stammer out an affirmative. “Good. Now on to business.”

Suddenly her demeanor is pleasantly professional once more. “Alright, HIPR representative, welcome to the StrikeOut corporation, proud providers of mercenary services for more than one hundred years. As you already know, the StrikeOut family has been more than happy to provide gene mods and even some cybernetic augmentations to our new employees.

Alright, really quick you guys, the rules:

I started writing this quest with the assumption that you had Neo Hemoglobin and Myocyte Pack Ares. You can decide not to have them if you so please. This is sort of like leaving Goodsprings in Fallout New Vegas.

StrikeOut is willing to provide new recruits at most 4 implants or upgrades.

Each one you choose you will be charged for a certain amount of credits. You started off with 5,000.

Going into debt is normal and expected. Just plan to pay it off as quickly as possible.

There are more upgrades, some of which you can access immediately upon completing this mission. Others will unlock if you find them in missions or go up a paygrade.

Please respond to this post to vote for your 4 Upgrades

>> No.29662137

Suits are important and armament upgrades will be a major factor in DAQ later.

Right now your suit protect you from damage, protects you from topological neurotoxins, and has a few other functions like data storage and carry pouches.

The helmet has an information control suite, with communications, maps, and status read outs, as well as a sensory management system. It can protect your sense from stuff like loud noises or bright lights, but does not enhance them.

Processing Power is used for the management of cybernetic implants. At your stage it doesn't matter too much.

This. Both the Dopa upgrade and processor improves reaction time, and I think the processor is more useful.

I agree tentatively with this guy. We really want the skeleton to avoid broken bones putting us out of action.

But how badly in debt is -21,500cr compared to our salary?

>> No.29662286

I think I get how processing power works.
We get twenty points. Implants lower those points.
If we are in the positive points, we get better reactions.

Honestly, not that bad at all. In retrospect I should've made the upgrades more expensive. I'm hand waving it as a special sale for the rookies.

In the future everything will be much more expensive.

Agreed. Maybe the dopamine implant will prevent us from spitting inside our faceplate.


Again.

>> No.29662374

It seems like we all agree on the two basic upgrades and new bones.

So it boils down to either processor or Dopamin.
I'd go for dopamin, because I'd prefer not to cyberize before...

Dopa-SYNTHoid Vs. Hirosata Processor

Dopa-SYNTHoid :
Ups reaction time

Hirosata Processor:
Ups reaction time
Ups thinking ability

Processor over Dopa since things will be more expensive in the future

>> No.29662427

Most expensive path:
- Neo Hemoglobin (10,000)
- Immuno-Metrics (8,000)
- Kodiak Eyeware (9,000)
- Boze Auditus (8,500)

This would likely leave us with shit reaction time, though.

No need to worry, it's not THAT much more expensive anons. I just realized that some of these choices are too cheap. Others are much closer to what the new price lines will be.

>>29662377
Generally its a matter of scale. Dopa does reaction time very very well. The Hirosata, only somewhat.

The processor can be shorted out by EMP for a while... wait shit I don't want to give OP ideas.
