We stopped Nineballs from flooding the whole planet, and after the Falcons surrendered, we're this close to world peace. And he played an important part in all of it it! He better show up! Besides, he said he will return, he's got to keep his word!

It's a big battle in Siberia. Jade Falcons are finally fed up with the stalemate and launched an all-out attack to rid the world of Clan Wolf once and for all. Any annoying "freebirths" (read: us!) that get in the way are free game for them as well! They're fanatics, and no quarter is given or offered.

The battle takes place not just on the ground, but in the skies as well. They even armed their dropships and are using them as improvised battleships vs the Wolves' units. Clearly you're dealing with desperate people.

Oh, also both sides are being constantly bombarded by endless swarms of suicide drones. Have fun.

[2]

But eventually, the victor surfaces. News of the Jade Falcons' Galaxy Commander's death start to spread, and the remaining commander asks for Hegira. Which is clan speak for honorable surrender. It is given and just like that, the fighting just... ends. Jade Falcons retreat.

That was sudden. What a change of attitude from their endless zeal not that long ago. Just what the heck happened?

Also the suicide drone bombardment is over.

Recently, you may have heard increased frequency in news or reports on the skirmishes in Siberia between the Wolves and the Jade Falcon. The clanners onboard have been restless, even if many of them had been rotating back to Wolf City for periods of time. Ranna will send a vid-message to those onboard.

"We believe that the Falcons cannot maintain this level of intensity without escalating soon. The Clan is consolidating our Touman in Wolf City in preparation for that escalation. My Trinary has been recalled as well, for the duration of this conflict - the 4th Wolf Guards are expeceted to be in the thick of things. However, with the Verfolger, I am still able to join the Chalice on deployments if necessary."

This time, when the typical Clan Wolf dropship arrives for its scheduled supply drop-off, it did not come alone - escorting it are ten aerospace fighters. Furthermore, all the clanners are loading their mechs on the dropship, and even some of the Wolf Technicians are boarding it.

Ranna is there overseeing the transfer, disturb/talk to her?

[She taps her left temple, and her new eye glows blue for a few moments.  Don't worry, not the same color that Kairos Aspida units did.]

... Well, I'm finding myself thanking people a lot recently.  And this might be the best way to repay everyone if I'm not cleared for piloting duties.  I'm a scientist first, pilot and mechanic second, after all, and what we saw out there -most notably what happened to the Rushbird- and what Hixar's gotten for us has given me a lot of serious food for thought about how Primeval Force is channeled.

Additionally, while the Invaders were still a threat, there'd been some development in "Anti-Getter" Missiles... meant to essentially drain the Invaders of the surplus energy that was making them so difficult to dispose of.  I'm not going to say that Getter Rays and the Primeval Force are exactly the same, but it feels that the Force has more in common with it than, say, gasoline.  Between the two... maybe we can make a countermeasure of some sort.

But I won't promise anything, not when my magnum opus scientific creation is something so flawed, and especially not when all I'm working with is best guesses.  But it'll at least be something.  And anyone that can help... whether you've only just seen the Force in action or you've got your own theories and calculations, please by all means let's try to work this out together rather than separately.

The final enemy has revealed itself...

The end of our struggle for peace is near, I can feel it. But...

How the heck are we supposed to find some sort of omnipotent primal energy source that seems to be the forefather of all exotic energy sources? For that matter, I'm not even sure we'd be able to hurt it!

Short of something genocidal as shutting down and destroying all the sources it would have for interacting with our world, I can't think of any permanent solution here. We no longer have LordGenome's Bio-Computer to help locate it. Absorbing it and containing it seems to make things explode. And if this is truly an omnipotent energy we're dealing with, there's a heavy probability that conventional weapons won't phase it, and exotic weapons will simply fuel it! Even if we did destroy it, wouldn't it have a similar effect to killing Artifex?

It seems lately we've been dealing with nothing but madmen and self-proclaimed gods lately...does anyone have any ideas for moving forward at this point?

[Needless to say, Kurou is kind of kicking himself right now after what happened. Thanks to his 'kindness' Master Therion was able to come back to life and summon Yog-Sothoth. On top of all of that, someone he cared about was now dead. Yeah, he's kind of having a bad day.

He sits on the deck of the Chalice just firing round after round from both of his pistols rather absent-mindedly.]

Why did you even give me these Ennea?

[Al appears on the comm, looking a bit better than Eibon was doing. She still looks pretty worried though.]

I know it's pointless to say anything about how tough this will be. I've seen for myself what you all can do; however, that is not my main concern.




If you do not know yet, Yog-Sothoth is connected to all points in time and space. Which means it will be impossible for us to know where it will lead us one we enter the gate. Once we pass through it we will travel throughout the entirety of every universe that exists.

[Al pauses for a moment.]

We will likely never be able to return to this universe.

[After hearing the announcement Kurou only has one thing to say.]

...Just leave dealing with Master Therion to me.
saikyocivrobo: (bein' bishie)
[personal profile] saikyocivrobo
Well then. The situation intensifies. The short version is that all of Black Lodge and Cthulhu are defeated, but Master Therion is alive and soon, the gate of Yog-Sothoth will open, releasing hundreds of overpowered eldritch abominations on Earth. This could be stopped if we kill Therion, but he happens to be behind the gate himself. We have a few weeks at most.

Shall we give up? Hell no. I've already seen some pretty dire things and didn't give up then. We know almost everything about Master Therion now, and Maxene has some information to share as well. Knowledge is power... And, as a scientist, all my power comes from knowledge! Soon, we should have a plan to stop Therion for good; to break the cycle of his constant rebirth. This is not the end for humanity; it's merely the beginning of another huge challenge ahead of us. But since when does that stop White Chalice?

While a small group breaks into the inside of the evil god, the rest of us has to face its minions! There are individually weak, but incredibly numerous! Enemies encountered include:

Destroyer Robots - oldschool robots straight from a 60s movie, but mecha sized. They are varied but most can fly and shoot some kind of missiles or beams.
Deep Ones - fish-faced humanoid abominations from the sea! They vary in size from human to giant robot-sized. Some possess extra mutations.
Dagon- and Hydra-lookalikes - slug-like monsters the size of a small battleship. Disgusting.
Cthulhu's tentacles - the blob cannot spam lasers in its current state, but it still has lots of tentacles it tries to use for melee.

We're not alone in this battle, various organizations are helping out as well! Also, Metatron and Sandalphon are going through their duel nearby, but that's not a part of the giant battle and Metatron seems to be winning anyway.

People stare at her as they enter-something about her face seems wrong, as though she is afflicted with some strange illness. But they pass quickly enough, moving on to their business. It's rude to stare, and none have been who she's waiting for.

Something that the Anti-Spiral said during the battle...about the potential of Spiral Energy synergizing with other energy sources. It's been bugging me. Something in my gut tells me that this is somehow related to Primeval Force...so I propose a series of tests, in the name of SCIENCE! I humbly request a proper list of all the unique and foreign energy sources that we've seen so far, such as Getter Rays, Photonic Power, Plasma-X, GN Particles, etc. There's got to be some kind of common resonance between them, and Spiral Power is likely the key to figuring it out...I just know it!

[And what's R doing?  Well, REVIVAL's pacing back and forth in the hangar, its body language reeking of frustration-]

This isn't doing enough for me.

[-Before sitting down in frustration.]

I don't know how to unwind from this.  There've been bad times before but...

Losing more of the Dullahans like that...!

Since the Sanc intervention, Bernie has been out of combat. Who remembered that Bernie was a new Zaku? Which made its debut when the Chalice "went berserk".

So far, his first couple trials has been a success. He's sitting in between the Zaku's shoulder and head, just contemplating]

"I'm actually pretty proud of myself," he said, patting the Zaku's head.

Why are robots who want to become humans messed up so often? As if being a robot meant you are somehow less of a person. That's offensive.

Typhon does not deserve to be called either. For the civilians who died in Madrid, and for the soldiers who died now... If I meet him again, I will destroy him. He didn't manage to spread the Izanami Virus today, but he will if he gets another chance. I won't give him that.

...I'm going after Isaac.

[Richard makes his intent pretty clear and simple as he starts packing some of his stuff, food and supplies already stuffed into a backpack. At his workbench, he briefly hesitates as he picks up his sword... but straps it to his side anyway.]

I've got some idea of where he might go, and I've things to check on anyway.

[Richard seems pretty determined, anything you might have to say?]

[2]
[Locked]

For a place being fortified, wasn't that hard to get in...

[Richard muses as he steps towards the Sinclair household, though admittedly even Britannian special forces did not typically have the might of magic at their command.

He stares up at the aged building for a bit, wondering if the people inside had ever really met a - as they would call him - 'Norman' before...

Well, as he knocked on the door, time to find out.]

[Cora remains in her armor - seated upon a pile of boxes with both fists pressed against the front of her helmet. Dice was still laid up in the infirmary and had lost a lot of blood but he'd recover. Dagger was making a report to Ulysses about the whole situation in Cora's stead and Scythe was holed up somewhere. Probably beating herself up about not being able to keep from being locked down by Isaac.]

...Just what the hell happened....Mongrel... Oxide... Appletree...

[The Sinclair family sword laid close by, still stained thoroughly from Last Stage's blood. Cora herself had more than a few injuries. Yet she still hadn't relinquished her armor for repairs nor attended to her own wounds.]

And now those bastards are on Mars.... goddamnit... what am I even doing...

[But at least the populace remained unharmed... god only knows what could have happened and-]



Mum!

Lucas-?

[She was startled, didn't they drop everyone off just before the mission once they were sure it was safe? She didn't really have much time to think as there was a light clunk against her armor as her son hugged her tightly.]

Mum, they just said you got back and I saw one of your friends get pulled away on one of those hospital cart things and I tried looking for you there but they didn't say you were there and I tried to find you all over the place and-

[Lucas was just belting out the words in a frantic manner, getting exceedingly more out of breath, Cora's helmet pulled open and she gave her son a comforting smile.]

Lucas... Lucas... calm down... breath... its okay. I'm alright... I just got scratched a few times... its not so bad.

But Mum, you're bleeding! You got holes in your fancy space suit thing... We need to find the ships nurse!

[Everyone will be treated to the sight of a young boy barely in his teens trying his damndest to tug a grown woman in power armor off her seat to find someone to help with her wounds. Cora doesn't even look embarrassed at all.]

[2]



[Cora's bandaged up after finally relenting to Lucas' frantic attempts to get her into the infirmary and downright exhausting himself with his futile tugs. Now out of her armor, she and her son were relaxing in front of a TV, watching some old television show from what you could tell and enjoying some sandwiches. Peanut butter and Jam from the looks of it, there was an entire plate full of them off to the side too. Despite the horrific stress and losses taken during the mission, Cora seemed surprisingly at peace - and Lucas just looked quite happy to be by his mother's side.]

Hey... do you want to join us? I think after the day we all had, you could use the rest too.

[She motions lightly with her mechanical arm to the empty space next to her.]

[3a] [Locked to Roads]

[After a while Cora  found someone to look after Lucas for a while. For her own reasons she was going to look for someone on the ship to talk to.]

Roads?... Could you spare a while for me?

[3b] [Babysitting] [Anyone who isn't Cynthia.]

[Whoever you are, you've been tasked by Cora to look after her son while she handles some private business. He's been pretty energetic and was asking you questions non-stop and often looking around wherever you're with him with much excitement. Hm... maybe he had too many of those sandwiches.]

[4] [The Squad]

[Dice, Dagger, Scythe. Along with Cora they're all that's left of the team. Dagger remained silent as he looked over the post battle report he was going to send to HQ, Scythe was cradling her gun... and Dice?]

Mongrel... that idiot... I can't believe it... he just... why did he.... god... what are we gonna tell his mother? I heard she was just starting to get lucid again!

[Dice was agonizing over the loss of his friend. He may have been an jerk, but Mongrel was their jerk.]

[So after finally setting the Moonrace on the right track, and ending the war between them and the Militia, and sealing away the Turn X for hopefully several thousands years, Loran looks the most relaxed he ever has in a while. Which kind of takes Sochie and Kihel!Dianna by a bit of surprise.]

[Right now he's seeing the Earthrace off and saying farewells to his ladies.]

You're not coming home?

You're job is over now you know. You can finally live in peace.

I know, but I rather stick it out with the Chalice and Turn A.
Feel kind of obligated at this point to see it all the way through.

By example with the power I now have I'll show everyone, that Black History Gym was going on about, I'll use the Turn A to make sure it never happens.

Of course...I'll be waiting for you-

WE'LL be waiting for you. So don't die out there, got it "Laura"?

Haha, don't worry, I'm not going to die before I see you two again. I just wouldn't be able to live with that.

[Sochie punches him in the arm and they all hug before leaving back to NPC land until he can go back and help rebuild the Hiems business. Because fuck the ending, lets be polygamous.]

[Anyways with that done Loran stands and stares at the Turn A being all chipper and what not.]

1. *Rock's crew can be seen preparing stuffs in the hangar. Various kind of items are lain on a table and scattered on the floor, munitions, food, mining equipments, maps, and Rock is stuffing them into a giant backpack. Roll can be seen tinkering with Rock's powered armor and weaponries, while Data is well... dancing as usual.*

We're near Calinca city. According to our research, the fourth key should be in a ruin near that city. Can you believe it? Soon we'll have all the four keys, and the Mother Lode will be in humanity's reach!

The Mother Lode...  Unlimited energy...

It's the holy grail for countless generation of diggers. Hope... Despair… Charity… Greed… Duty… Power... Who can say what truly motivates us diggers?

But currently, humanity is not in a really good condition, isn't it? What with everyone at each others' throat and everything. I know I'm just a simple digger, who is relatively small in the scheme of things, but I still want to help the world. I'm still not sure what the Mother Lode's shape would be, but I sincerely hope it will help leading us toward a better future.




2. *You are in Calinca city now. It's a small mining town, and Rock is currently running around the city,  buying things for preparation for his incursion into the final ruin. The only remarkable thing in the town is a big statue in the middle of the town. It's a statue of a winged goddess with two faces. You stumble onto Rock under it.

"Two goddesses, the same yet different.  One goddess to rule the heavens above, one to rule the earth below.  She of the earth guards the key, she of the sky guards the record of the ages.  When the sky goddess lifts up her voice, all shall end, and all shall begins."

Is written on the base of the statue.*

Interesting statue, right? There's apparently a legend in this town.

The legends say that long ago, the world was watched over by two goddesses.  One guarded the Keys of the land, the other protected the gates of the sky...One day, when the goddess of the sky came to borrow the Keys from the goddess of the earth, they argued, and the sky goddess was imprisoned by the earth goddess...

Keys and Goddesses... Such a curious legend...

[Red Frame is moving around the deck. Not the hangar - it needs a lot of space, to swing that oversized sword around!

But look, this time something is different. Gerbera Straight II is held only in Astray's right hand. The left arm's Powered upgrade is absent, showing the normal not-lifting Red Frame arm normally hidden underneath.]

Shaky... very shaky. Looks like I need both arms to wield it in battle with any effect.

But how will I make a replacement on such a short notice? Either way, the fight for Earth's sake is not over yet. You just refuse to give up, Red Frame, don't you?

I feel the same way.

[Lowe leaves the cockpit and will just lie down on the deck, hands behind his head, looking at the sky, his mobile suit, White Chalcie around him.]

It's been a long time, huh.

Isaac Sinclair is up on the Chalice deck in the wee hours of the morning, performing sword drills as rosy fingers of dawn stretch out over the horizon.

His strokes are large, brutal and scything, meant to cleave enemies in half. And yet, as he performs this ruthless form of combat...he seems to be calm, collected and at peace.

"By heavenly Jove, Jehovah, and Andraste..." He says quietly, winding down and starring at the rising sun. "Let my blade strike true, and let her hold her living son in her arms again..."

Interject?

[2]

Isaac is calling his mother in one of the Chalice's comm booths, hopping up and down on the balls of his beat as he listens to the dial tone. Finally, someone picks up on the other end.

"Mother Sinclair!" He calls out. "Oh, so many marvelous thing have happened last we talked! I know not where to start, but I think that at last, after so long, good fortune's c–!"

A sharp, muffled voice cuts him off. Isaac winces, then listens. And from the outside you can see his face turn pale.

"Oh Gods."

Eavesdrop?

[3]

Isaac sends a general comm transmission to everyone aboard the White Chalice...with the exception of Cora.

He looks really wild-eyed...and a bit gaunt.

So you oversized, red skinned goggled lummox, we can finally come to two agreements. You stay on YOUR end and I'll stay on MINE, and we will not interfere with each other's work unless it encroaches onto the other's workspace where we will be allowed to utterly decimate it as the offended party sees fit.



AND. To ensure THAT nothing like that HORRIBLE HORRIBLE incident THAT we will NEVER speak of AGAIN ever HAPPENS. We will NEVER AGAIN even ATTEMPT anything RELATED to BREACHING into other REALITIES! I.... AGREEEEEE!

[The two exchange a gentlemanly handshake and turn around - returning to their respective workstations.]

Near sighted, clumsy, organ mucking, overbite laden imbecile.

Rotten, MEMORY damaged, tone DEAF, metal PANDERING twit.


[Now that the two have finally settled down to a degree we may finally have some peace.]

-ONE HOUR LATER-

[Or maybe not.]



I don't even want to know what happened here. Robo.

[What happened at the joint West-Tesla labs you ask? Well... you see Tesla was working on an experimental plant growth serum. One of West's experiments rattled the lab a little and had Tesla dump his entire beaker of the serum onto his test plants. There are now vines wreaking chaos upon the two and anyone who is close enough. Thankfully the tech crew had long avoided the lab space and there is also helpful warning tape cordoning off the area. Elsa is at the considerably more peaceful side facepalming.]

[On the other end you see Professor Tesla being thrown about by the vines and occasionally meeting a table, or wall, or floor or being swept across one of the aforementioned surfaces. Doctor West fares no better, having attempted to re-enact Apocalpse Now on the overgrown plants. They were entertained by the idea and wanted to re-enact it as well. The vines now bearing flamethrowers and tormenting West with them who was now running around screaming with both lab coat and hair on fire. You can see a few vegetables with teeth bouncing out of the growths and seeking to sneak out of the quarantine zone.]

Well...alls well that ends well, I suppose! And we have SCIENCE to thank for salvaging what would have been a forgettable and almost pitiful finale into some kind of god-beating mass of true finale boss. On that note...does anyone know a good lawyer? Preferably one that's hot blooded and passionate about JUSTICE? And works for cheap?

"This whole time, I've been such a fool...everything that EVIL did...no, my whole relationship with Oishi, too...it's all been because I've blindly followed the path of JUSTICE.

This alternate reality-hopping adventure... It was certainly something. For better or for worse, I don't think I will forget about it anytime soon. Or ever.

It was also exactly what I needed. I'm feeling alright now. And it's time to get to work... We have several important matters to resolve and a madman to stop, after all. I'm sure I can help with devising a plan somehow.

CRAB BATTLE

[1] [YOU'VE GOT CRABS]

[After the battle with the Turn-X luger has been missing the whole time. Was he sulking over the loss of the chance to finally be healthy for the first time in his life? Was he plotting the fall of Leopold, possibly literally to make the Prince of Ruba hurt his nose by landing facefirst on the floor? Or was he just smoking as many cartons of cigarettes? Who can say...]

[However it seems when you step into a bathroom for any reason whatsoever you find your foot meeting something distinctly unpleasantly cold. It was also uneven and very pinchy. The Floor is apparently crabs. Lots of them. And by opening the door they're going to other parts of the room.]

[Have fun trying to deal with this new infestation. At least its less noisy compared to the gerbil infestation Luger planned out last time... of course that incident was a lot more adorable as well given the whole - gerbils painted like your mecha with tiny cutouts of you tied to their backs.]

[2]

[Luger himself was just smoking off in some corner of the ship with several boxes that stank of a fish market. Now we know where the crabs came from. He was sitting next to a pot with what appeared to be spares, a mallet and some cutlery. With him was a sickly looking gerbil and a crab that was feasting on the remains of its kin. With butter.]

[He doesn't seem to notice you as he calmly puts a poorly drawn cut out of Leopold on a freshly cooked crab before repeatedly bashing it on the face with the tiny mallet. He lets out a relieved sigh as if it helped him feel much better about the whole situation.]
