If I was a nazi, I would have been promoted to... stabsfeldwebel.

*everyone groans, mongrel is fired from making jokes forever*

Anyway, apparently my weapon has chosen itself.



If I can dual-wield, maybe a gun or better yet bombs I can set and run away (like the old high explosives) of some kind as backup... purely for bigger non-stabbable baddies, of course.

Actually too bad there's no snoiper rifle... that would be faaaarrrrrr more appropriate, considering both STAB STAB STAB above and my penchant for playing sneaky rogues in RPGs. I mean, keep me stabbing everything as the preferred primary option! Yes! But I'm sure at some point we'll be running into unstabbable shit.

Oh Ziiro tried the sniper rifle at the start of the mission, if you'll recall. Did not go well.

Well, do we want to to be a GOOD choice, or a thematic one?

But I am totally cool with my alt being to sneak around and plant bombs.

Pretty sure that you gain strength and can carry more as you level up, so you should be able to carry a gun now. Reason you got stuck with a medpack and a knife at all was because you couldn't carry anything bigger.

I'll try to get a gun and a bomb in ya next.

Strength is 1:1 for carry weight. I had a lot of recruits work their way from only having grenades to an actual gun.

Sign me up! Give me the largest and most powerful machine guns! I'll hold the trigger down and run in mad little circles!

The gals in the lab made a real breakthrough on what poison is:

Image

Image

Oooh, poison dagger! I get one made for Esperath.

Image

Over in manufacturing, the junkrats pick through a pile of garbage for useful materials like metal, wire, plasteel, hellerium (which powers everything), and chemicals. If we want to make zepplins for scouting, body armor, ships, or anything cool like that, we need that stuff in bulk.

Image

Research also gets back to me on what the "Confederate Eagle" is, which turns out to be a gun! A desert eagle. I think we actually own one from that mission with the nazis, so, I give it Mongrel.

Image

And a week or so passes while people heal.

Monthly report comes out!

Image

We're making a killin' after showing those jackboots what's what. Too bad maintenance costs are pretty nuts, so we don't see a lot of that cabbage.

The actual spending money comes from fencing off your plunder, I'm starting to realize.

Brainers come back with some info on the smugglers we see flying around the globe:

Image

Apparently researching "contacts" opens up what we can buy on the black market. Been wondering about that.

I have no idea what a fusion torch is, but I want one. Definitely getting at least one cattle prod, also, to take live prisoners.

Image

Ugh. Okay, guess sorting through garbage costs money! Good to know.

Image

I fence some of the stuff we've taken out of the scrap pile to finance further sifting through scrap. Doesn't really hit me how dumb this is till well after I do it.

Image

I put the brainers at work decrypting one of the data discs we got from the nazis. I'm not sure what this does just yet, but I'm sure research can fill me in when they're ready for it.

Image

Oooh. A nice, fat smuggling ship passes our waters.

Arm the canons, girls.

Okay, we're looking good on galpower after a month of recovery.

Frocto and Defenestration are back in action, as are Stush and Geo.

New recruits Friday, Kazz, Sharkey, Esperath, Thad, and Ziiro join the cause.

Büge wrote:What's the opposite of the King's Shilling? Anyway, I want in! Seems like you'll need a carpenter/surgeon, so gimme a chainsaw.

Haven't forgotten about you! Stush will morph into you right after this mission is done, since I can't really get a hold of Stush so I don't really know if he wants in on this farce or not.

Image

#FinalFighter takes a direct line toward The Bastion, hoping to head off the smuggler after they pass by The Black Citadel.

It works.

Image

Not huge, but should be an easy plunder.

Image

We have zero difficulty shootin' them full of holes and plunging them into the Blackmarch swamps.

Image

Thad, clad in his smarty-pants brainer coat, grabs a spear gun, a grenade, and a medical satchel.

Image

Since Ziiro's accuracy decidedly sucks, he decides to go bag, loading up that RPG we kept getting blasted with last mission.

Image

Esperath's poison dagger isn't done yet, so, the usual for him. Added a bandage though.

Image

As of last mission, Grath is now officially strong enough to carry a cutlass!

We expect great things.

Image

Smiler realizes his assault shotgun is still out of barrels, and has to go low-tech with a sawed off and a belt of shells.

No idea if this will work or not.

Image

Defenestration's strength is still really fucking low (see the "weight" value in the top-right), so he grabs our only laser pistol, maxing out his carrying capacity.

Baby steps. Just gotta get a kill or two.

Image

Friday takes an X-Bow the gals in the lab made up for her. Had amazing success with Mazian on that, so, having another couldn't hurt.

Maxes out her weight capacity, too.

Image

Kazz, who traditionally forgos garments of any kind, grabs a blunderbuss and nothing else. I'm realizing only now he can't carry anything that isn't in his hands.

Image

Sharkey takes a pack of smokes, an AK-47, and a medpack.

Zaratustra, and any others, remain unchanged. Whatever works, works.

Let's get this done.

Left hand! Our right. It's brown colored.

It actually becomes plot-relevant this mission.

Esperath's the first one out the door, and welp, it's bad.

Image

Huge open area, almost zero cover, three guys ready to gun us down.

Image

Kazz, Mongrel, Smiler, Defenestration, and Grath huddle like rats under a tiny hill, hoping to survive the turn.

Down by the landing gear, Ziiro fires off an RPG round, misses, but does some okay damage to a few of the surrounding enemies. He's immediately not crazy about this thing.

Image

On the ship, Geo, Sharkey, Friday, and Thad move up into the crow's nest to try and pick off the guys outside.

Image

Enemy takes their turn, chucking grenades at both Ziiro and the huge group to the right.

Weeeeeeee~

Image

Ohhh uh oh

uuuhhh ohhhhh

Image

OH GOD EVERYONE'S DEAD
