Observation Tower - RHQ

The hallway opens up into the pinnacle of the Repliforce Headquarters, the Observation Tower. Monitors stretch from wall to wall, level upon level of active monitors going all at once. There are at least 4 separate positions available for reploids to station themselves at while watching over events across the globe as they happen. There's also an extensive communcations console that allows each monitor in this room to keep in constant communication with the Command Center should the need arise to bring attention to any kind of crisis.

Burn Dinorex [RF]
Bastion [SecDef Coat] [RF]

Obvious exits:
<L3H> leads to Level 3 Hallway.

The world is a very quiet place tonight, but this base, is not in the least silent. SecDef troops move in and out constantly, all shuffling about preparing for tonight, and one SecDef officer is standing at the main terminal, several jack-in-cables attached from his arms to the terminals around him, monitoring the surroundings and coordinating the coming power-shift.

Flare Feline talks up the steps to the Observation Tower. All preperations for tonight are complete, on Flare's side anyway. His squad of marines are prepped and ready, jacked up and good to go, and any other Starcraft quote you can think of. As he reaches the top, he nods at Bastion "Evening sir."

Burn Dinorex is here as well, although placing his massive bulk off to the side, allowing other, smaller Reploids to move around. He sits still, only the very tip of his long tail moving. The flames along his back seem subdued, and overall the fiery t-rex seems calmer than usual, the result of his recent absence. But, he has returned in time for the preparations for the power outage, as defending Repliforce Island is his duty.

Bastion doesn't turn, still facing the main screen which is flipping through images of outside; a split screen of dozens of external cameras. "Burn, Flare. Greetings." he says, his voice unusually monotone, probably from the multi-tasking he's pulling right now with him being directly jacked into the system.

Flare Feline nods again "My squad of Marines are in place, and prepped on the situation. They're prepared for several possible scenarios." He pauses "Though I hope their action won't be needed tonight." He looks around the room, his tail flicking from side to side idly, as he views the monitors with various live screens from around the base, the thing they must protect.

"Greetings, Bastion." Comes Burn Dinorex's slow reply, as he nods his large head slightly. "I hope all our many preparations are not nessasary, but I am ready to defend this island from any attack." He says, and the flames running down his back waver slightly. The large flaming Reploid is calm for now, which is good. He doesn't want to lose his head in the middle of a fight, thus clouding his judgement.

Giving a slight nod, Bastion grins somewhat. "Oh indeed, my greatest hope will be that we don't need it. I will not be caught unawares though. If the Mavericks or Masters try something, they'll be getting a rather rude slap in the face of pure reality." Then, the screen flickers to the Fortress III, it seems MSE and Aerial are busy preparing it for a major flight and workload on the screen.

Flare Feline blinks at the screen of Fortress III, big ship. He scritches his chin "So who do we have commanding that thing anyway?"

Iris arrives from the Level 3 Hallway.
Iris has arrived.

Ring Redwing comes into the Observation Tower, just to observe the other Aerials outside. The nice thing about being Aerial XO is not being forced to do the same tasks as everyone else although she wouldn't mind to much to help, especially since her quarters are stationed aboard at the moment.

Burn Dinorex peers down at the screens. "Yes.. The Fortress will come in handy, if there is an attack." He says, and lets out a slow, brooding sigh, lightly tinged with flames. "The power generators must be protected, or we will have a very difficult time defending the island."

Iris walks in very quietly, in a somber mood at the moment because she -knows- in her heart this is going to be a difficult evening.

Bastion nods slightly to all. "I hope it remains quiet. And Burn, that isn't the sole reason I've commisionned it for tonight. But one of the major ones. We'll see." Nodding slightly, "Iris, Ring." he says in greeting. He's still fully jacked in, cables from his arms to terminals. Multitasking.

Bastion says, "As for commanding. No. Not till it's needed will someone be pulled in to command it. It'll be ready though."

Flare Feline nods. Well that's that. He had better soon get back to his squad, just to keep supervising things. As he turns and heads out though, he notices Iris, and walks over with a wave "Hey, evening."

Iris murmurs a greeting of sorts, then sits down at the comm console, scouring the airwaves for signs of...impending doom, perhaps? Spotting Flare out of the corner of her eye, she looks over at him and gives him a thumbs-up.

Burn Dinorex nods politely down to Iris as she enters. "Yes Bastion, we all hope it will remain a quiet, mostly normal day. And we all know our enemies will like to change that." He says, flames flickering slightly. "But we'll be ready. No matter what they try, we will be ready."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Bastion transmits, "A'right people. To your stations. Power Transfer to begin in 20 minutes. MSE, get to work on your side."

Ring Redwing salutes and addresses Bastion briefly before going to observe the Aerials milling about in the air outside. "Well, it seems that all is in readiness. I should probably get ready to call the squads in as soon as Emerald Dragon gives the order."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "MSE units are in position and are ready."

Flare Feline nods at Iris, and smiles and gives a thumbs up too "Well, I'm positive you'll keep an ear out for any trouble. And we'll do our best on our end. With any luck we won't even hear a pindrop tonight, but incase someone does start something..." He glances back to Burn, Bastion and Red "...they'll have to get through all of /us/ first." He nods at Bastion as he sends his radio signal "Well then, I'll get down to my squad to make sure they're ready. We have to keep alert now." He looks back at Iris "I'm sure everything'll turn out alright" And with that, he makes his way down out of the Observation Tower

Iris murmurs... "We just have to hope that...that's going to be the case."

Burn Dinorex rises from his crouch slowly, his long tail unduliating and coiling out. He reaches out his limbs and rises to his full impressive hieght of exactly fifteen feet. His face is calm and stoic, but the flames on his back belie his expression. "I'm heading to the gates now, to make my stand should our enemies attack. Will you join me, Bastion? We can fight side by side if nessasary."


New York - Repliforce Island

Repliforce Island is simply that, an artificial area that has grown so much its now its own seperate Island of New York City. Mazes of rampways, bridges, and shafts give access to the Island, as hovercars, hoverboats, and barges constantly move from New York City's main area to Repliforce Island. In the center of the island is the sprawling dome of Repliforce Headquarters, surrounding by small, futuristic Reploid housing developments and such. Its like a mininature city within a City, situated around RHQ.

RHQ - North Walls

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Flare Feline transmits, "Lieutenent Flare Feline here. I've relayed with my squad at the north wall, they're all prepared and ready to go. If anyone else is stationed at the North Wall please hurry and get here incase something /does/ happen. (OOC:Come to the North Wall if you want, I'm the guy in charge on that end ^_^)"

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Bastion transmits, "Okay. The following are to head to these positions. Burn and I will be at the gates with Plasma Badger, Iris, Archer Colossus, and Strike Mongoose. East side will be Colonel in command, Fusion, Gearworks, Ring Redwing, and Selene. North, Phoebus Commanding, Flare, Arsenal Spinosaur. Sky patrols, Spiral commanding, Quell, and Hailstrom. Underwater patrol, Fencer commanding, Volt, and Artillery Chasmasaur."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Corporal Plasma Badger transmits, "Affirmative. Moving into position now."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Arsenal Spinosaur transmits, "Yessir. Enroute"

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Fencer Naiad transmits, "Roger that, moving out."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "We are ready to flip the big switch."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Lieutenant Spiral Pegasus transmits, "Already up in the air."

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> has arrived.

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Proteus Fox transmits, "Reporting to assigned position sir."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Archer Colossus transmits, "On my way."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Colonel transmits, "I approve the orders, not that you all seem to be waiting for that, anyway. Carry on."

Arsenal Spinosaur comes in all of his fully armed glory. Twenty different cannons gleam all over the body of the Spinosaur, cleaned, polished, checked and rechecked, ready for use should anyone come and attack. Finding a suitible place along the wall. Arsenal anchors himself in. A few anchor spikes deploy from each one of his legs and drive into the ground. "Time to play..." he muses to himself.

Flare Feline speaks with a few gumbies, as he goes over the squad formations and defensive positions. Yes, everything looks fine. But hopefully they won't have to defend this place, but if they have to, they'll damn well do it.

Skyblade Eagle has arrived.

Once Arsenal is anchored in rather comfortably he angles upward a bit, leaning back, locking his tail, phasing the cannon on it away so he can use it as a support. Every cannon is pointed slightly skyward toward the horizion. Come get some Masters...

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Bastion transmits, "Power is now at 30 percent. Enough to keep specified systems on."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Fencer Naiad transmits, "The underwater baffle barrier is in place. Underwater patrol in progress."

Skyblade Eagle sits on the wall, twirling one of her berettas in her hand, "This seems like a really familiar situation."

Arsenal Spinosaur slips his eyes toward Skyblade, "Heh, heya..." he says waving an arm toward her from his rather stationary position. "Welcome to the party."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Lieutenant Spiral Pegasus transmits, "Aerial patrol in place. Scouring the skies as I speak. Nobody up here yet but us and a few pigeons."

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> reminds behind, mostly, and lets Flare Feline to most of the work in positioning gumbies. Instead, Phoebus (yes Phoebus) instructs his own squad to head towards Flare Feline. There's some protest, but Phoebus gets to order them around. They move towards Flare. As for what Phoebus actually does to get ready, he makes sure the Armor's systems are all in check. He's suspicious about this. Very. Suspicious. He wonders if the blackout happened yet. He wasn't really paying attention.

Flare Feline finishes up positioning the squads, ok, jacked up and good to go... ok that's enough Starcraft quotes. He glaces up as Skyblade speaks "...you mean the fabled Siege of Repliforce Island? I wasn't here for that, I joined later.... I'm sort of glad I did." He turns and walks towards the Eagle, speaking to Phoebus "My squad and yours are positioned, we're ready for anything now... let's just hope anything doesn't happen."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "The generators are running smoothly, and it's all quiet on the Eastern Front."

Skyblade Eagle twirls her gun again, and tucks it away, "Party, eh?" She says, "Wasn't much of a party the last time." She frowns, and turns around, back to the other forcers, "A little more than a year ago, actually. And we don't even get so much as a holiday to remember those who'd fallen." She shakes her head a bit, going quiet after that statement.

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Flare Feline transmits, "Squads are prepped and ready on the North Wall. All's calm up here for now."

Arsenal Spinosaur nods a little, "Sorry," he states a little sullenly, looking up at the rather silent horizion. "Well.. if something does happen, we're fighting for ourselves, as well as their memory.. I think. Keep that in mind Skyblade."

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> Radios to Flare Feline, <We're prepared, that's all that matters. If something does happen, we'll smash them, if it doesn't, then they actually decided to be smart. for a change>, he muses and then lets out a sigh in his cockpit. He scans the area around him through the monitors and looks at the others.

Flare Feline nods up at Skyblade "Yeah, we'll defend this place. We may not get a holiday, but we can still honor their memory by beating the aft of anyone who tries to soil this place." That came out wrong, but no matter. Flare moves back with the squad, and stays alert, so far, nothing. And hopefully it'll stay that way.

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> 's pilot blinks. And then radios, <Holiday? They have a holiday?> to Flare and Skyblade. He mutters slightly, "...megh..", he says to himself, "I hope nothing happens... I'm not in the bloody mood."

Moonlight Kitsune has arrived

Skyblade Eagle sits herself back down on the wall, watching, "So, who wants to take bets on whether it'll be the Mavericks or the Masters, hmm?" She asks, as she pulls out a coin, "Or should I do the coin toss?"

Flare Feline chuckles "I'd put money on the Masters... because they're the ones stupid enough to pull something so obvious off." Of course Flare would rather none came, but we all know what's going to happen, right?

Moonlight Kitsune walks along, swishing her tails slowly, moving along the top of the North Wall, the wind whipping around her a bit as she stands there, her kimono flicking back and forth as she stands there.

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> pauses and then radios again, <Hrm. My Money's on...The coin landing midway between tails and heads."

Arsenal Spinosaur snickers at Phoebus, still rather anchored down. "Yeah, that sounds about right..." he says before peering toward the sky again. "Hrm..."

Skyblade Eagle just stays where she's sitting, bored, waiting, "Any bets at all?"

Moonlight Kitsune changes to the newest frequencies, and then continues to pace slowly along the wall, standing tall as she walks along, gracefully.

Arsenal Spinosaur hrms, "No clue, just someone, in all honesty. If we come through this clean I'll be amazed..."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Quell Quetzalcoatlus transmits, "Quiet there, folks. Any developments? Looks like there's SOMEHING going on down there..."

Stealth Transport has arrived.

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> paueses for a moment, <I'm going to continue on patrol...Inform me if something blows up.>, and the mecha starts walking away so my lack of presence later will be less important.

Heat Man has arrived.
Yamato Man has arrived.
Cappella has arrived.

Phoebus sends you a tightbeam radio transmission: "If I can't command, I want you to do it. For the Marines I mean. If a wall is failing, send support there, if nothing is going on at one wall, move some of it's troops, and I mean -some-, to the other walls to compensate."

Cold Man has arrived.

[Radio] You send Phoebus a direct message: "Roger that. But hopefully it won't come to it."

Charge Man has arrived.

Moonlight Kitsune stands on the top of the wall, her tails swishing slowly against the wind. She reachs up, and brushes the pale white hair from her face, as she waits.

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Corporal Plasma Badger transmits, "RM vessel SS Dreadskull sighted at the gates. Whoever put money in the pool on the Masters .. congratulations."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Corporal Plasma Badger transmits, "OOC: hold a moment.."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Fencer Naiad transmits, "Underwater team reporting in, There's some odd vibrations under the island. Either something's burrowing under the seafloor or a new volcano is forming under us."

Arsenal Spinosaur is anchored in near the northern wall, lotsa guns on the Spino, all pointing slightly upward, and slightly outward... "C'mon..."

Like an ebon shard floating through the night, the Stealth Transport seems to appear from nowhere as it leaps out of where it had been riding just above the waves, light suppression fire streaking towards the wall's obvious defenses. Then, as it weaves to avoid fire, it suddenly begins spewing a long line of troops. Neo Joes, looking a lot like rather badaft Zakus, slam to the ground, charging at the gumby defenders. Then, as it approaches the wall itself, the leaders of this assualt begin to spill out on pillars of flames and jet assisted packs. After laying down one more fast run of covering fire, the transport performs a fast immellman and burns away to a location out of RF guns, while the Robot Masters begin to wade into combat.

For he who sheds his blood with me today shall be my Brother. Cry Havoc, and let Slip the Dogs of War.

Tomahawk Man has arrived.

Crystal Man has arrived.

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Lieutenant Skyblade Eagle transmits, "Yep. Here they come."

The samurai Yamato follows closely behind Heat Man, the second Master out. Yamato unslings his spear behind his back and leaps down onto the ground with a *whud* of metal against dirt, holding his spear low in a defensive posture.
The samurai's eyes gleam as he looks over the battlefield, following behind Heat Man -- walking defense for his atomic brother. The time has come...now it is time for the Repliforce to learn its place in the world -- beneath the heel of the Robot Masters.

Yamato Man puts his guard up.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Phoebus transmits, "North Wall under attack. You win the bet, Flare."

Charge Man screams "LOOOK OUTT BELOW!" His body hurtling down like the wieghty rock he is. His body screams down air whipping and whistling pulling his wheels and body. His eyes burn as he hurtles toward the ground

The ground shakes and buckles as the massive hulk slams against the concrete. His body rising as he beholds the warfield. "Leeeeeeeettttt's SMASH BASH!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I could have done without it.... forward!"

Tomahawk Man walks out of the craft, a strange aquamarine pendant around his neck. He seems less -EVIL- for some reson. ...well, only slightly.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "I count 7 contacts underwater. Somekind of drill machine, 2 huge worm looking things, and four enemy Masters."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Skyblade Eagle transmits, "Hope you brought lots of guns."

Arsenal Spinosaur cracks his neck a little, "Alright! That's better!" he roars. There's a loud whrring, then a whine of so many internal generators before the Spino lets loose with his cannons. The weaponry lights up the area around him a great deal as he fills the air with some energy flack for the incoming transport. All canons fire, and fire repeatedly, taking as much as it can of the enemy threat as possible!

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Artillery Chasmosaurus transmits, "Oh, I think I have enough."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Somthing is coming from the water at the East Wall."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Arsenal Spinosaur transmits, "Twenty on myself..."

Flare Feline hrms and gets in a combat pose as the RMs advance. He signals the squads of Marines "Don't let them get any farther than they already have, move out!" And the Marine gumbies advance! ...to attack the Robot Master gumbies, so off they go on their gumbie battles, fun. Flare on the other hand looks out for an actual Master to fight. They're not getting by this fire cat too easily.

Cold Man slams into the ground heavily, one fist planted firmly as he kneels, recovering from the impact shock. Standing up, he looks around with his impassive gaze, prepared to engage anyone who attempts to bar his way. There are none here he can afford to simply ignore. They will have to be neutralised. He follows after the other RMs, his slower speed meainng he gradually falls behind as the line advances.

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> doesn't shoot at the Robot Masters, but rather is caught off guard by the new Joes. He sends a transmission to Flare, <Right. Looks like you're commanding the main troops. I'm gonna be seeing how much of a threat these weird freak Joes are.>, and he storms ahead, ordering the 17th to follow into the hordes of Sniper Joes v.20.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] RF XO, Colonel transmits, "Follow the defence plan as was laid out, and we should be able to hold them off, we held this facility against the entire world, we're not going to lose it to a half baked Robot Master assault."

Cappella stands silently out of the entrance of the Stealth Transport, gazing at the ground grimly. A thin frown presses on her lips as she watches those pile out. Slowly shaking her head the thief sighs and walks off the platform into the open space below. She is not a fighter, however she unfortunately has found herself here of all places. Letting herself fall to the ground the thief pulls out her crossbow from her back and places in a grappling bolt. The bolt hisses through the air before it finally snags on something, forcing the thief to stop merely inches from the ground.

Moonlight Kitsune stands on the wall top, and unsheaths the huge blade that is the 'Moonlight Katana'. Already, it glows slightly, as its drawn from its home. The wooden sheath is returned to the pale kitsune's back, as she stands, her kimono whipping around her, from the wind and stealth craft as it passes by.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Plasma Badger transmits, "Incoming at the Gates. They're dropping the Swandive on us.... *voice is as cold as the space between stars*"

Skyblade Eagle continues to stand on the wall, watching the Master transport make it's way towards the base, "All too familiar." She says, muttering quietly to herself, as her hands move down to her sides, grabbing hold of the two berettas, "Some things never change, now do they?" She draws both weapons, twirling them around and tossing them into the air, before catching them in the opposite hands, "Lets rock and roll." She opens her wings, and flaps up into the air, scanning..

Crystal Man is the last to leave, as he was piloting the Stealth Transport in the first place... and, well, he hates automated systems. Autopilots included. Thus, he's a little late in deploying... but seems just as ready to fight as the others. Unlike many of his brothers, though, he doesn't seem eager for mechfluid to flow... rather, he seems to be approaching this calmly. So calmly that it might well seem fake...

For good reason. It is.

. o O (Tonight, I must prove my loyalty... for some no longer accept it as genuine.) O o .

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Bastion transmits, "All units! Incoming on all vectors. Obvious. *grunts* I need one pilot, go into the base, and grab the Fortress III and take her to the air. We'll need her in two possible scenarios... Underwater. Everyone else, wipe the floor with the Masters. I don't want so much as an ounce of dirt to not be covered with their leaked fuel."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Command Major Slash Beast transmits, "This is Major Slash Beast. I am enroute to New York."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Phoebus, it's your show, go grab it."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "I'm afriad I don't have any piloting skills. Maybe I'll take some lessons once this mess is over."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Someone backup Phoebus, now. Two pilots are needed."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "We've got Ballade down here under the water."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Skyblade Eagle transmits, "Hope you brought a buttload of guns, then."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Phoebus transmits, "On my way. Flare, you got command."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "There's only three of us down here..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "Roger that."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Phoebus transmits, "ooc: Whoever else is piloting gets to do it. If there are no other pilots..then.. well.. pretend I'm doing stuff with the airship or something."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Artillery Chasmosaurus transmits, "I've got Ballade *BOOM* covered for now."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "We've got the Gesellschaft here at East. Looks like the Bonnes have joined the Masters for this."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Gearworks... Go grab and help Phoebus pilot the Fortress, now."

Repliforce Ride Armor <Eagle> turns around suddenly and blasts away? Yes! It was ordered back to base. Grumble. Grumble. To piliot some stupid little Fortress III huh? Who cares about a giant flying fortress when you get to pilot this baby (The Eagle). Either way, it's retreating and takes several neo joe hits in the back.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "that's kind of impossible at the moment SIR! We're under attack! *STOMMMP!* *sound of aircraft engines, and gumbie fire* HEAVY ATTACK!!!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Someone, get Gearworks out of there now! That is an order!"

Heat Man slags through several ranks of gumbies, many of them staying clear of him as he burns at combat level. Attacking with blasts of flames and physical strikes, he quickly spots the apparent commander of the battle. "Hit them hard! I'm on the leader!" Then, he leaps forward over RF lines, handing near Flare's position. "Hello. My name is Heat Man. You killed our Father's Duck. Prepare to die."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Major, if you can, go cover Gearworks escape."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Command Major Slash Beast transmits, "Acknowledged."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Quell Quetzalcoatlus transmits, "Spiral! Hailstorm! Coordinate on channel 6080. I'll get Vailant on here in a moment. If they start coming out of ships in a drop, let's take bits for souvenirs. Rrrgh."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Broadcast Ocelot transmits, "Wha' yuh get when a hovertank raised by a family of Ride Armors?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Broadcast Ocelot transmits, "Boom Boom. Commander Ocelot inna de Stalwart."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lt. Ring Redwing transmits, "Glad to see you still have your sense of humor about you, sir."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Archer Colossus transmits, "Well, I lost the joke."

The samurai charges forward, spinning his spear around himself in a blur of motion. Anything in his way gets mowed down by his rampage of destruction, flames bursting from his feet as he dash-jets forward. He begins charging towards Arsenal, thinking him an automated system, looking to take him down in one fell swoop.

Flare Feline sends off some more orders to the gumbie squads, he's now in charge of this area. Goody. He turns around to face the walking lighter which has ran up to him. "Knowing that freak of a father of yours, he likely had several other identical copies as a back up. But really, a /duck/?? He must be getting senile." His blasters form on his palms and he forms a small fireball "Leave this place now if you don't want to get hurt. We'll not let you advance another step." Ka-blammies

You miss Heat Man with your Flare Bomb attack.

Skyblade Eagle flies along through the air, picking off random gumbies with headshots from her berettas as she flies along, "Now where's one of the real ones.." She wonders aloud, before she spots Tomahawk Man, "Perfect." Folding her wings up onto her back, she goes into an inverted dive right towards the Robot Master, "Knock knock!" Her talons flash out as she aims to land right on him.

Skyblade Eagle strikes Tomahawk Man with her Talon Strike attack.

Arsenal Spinosaur is hardly any sort of automated turrent or the like. The sky is filled for just a few minutes more with the energy blasts of his cannons before he starts working quickly to unanchor himself from the ground. It's game time! The anchor spikes, extending from his legs, pull free from the ground, as does his tail. All folded away neatly inside, the dinosaur artillery platfrom snarls, lashing out at whatever passes before he notices someone incoming. Those two eyes lock onto Yamato... aiming, locking, getting a few things done before the fight begins, as it seem is destined.

Heat Man simply walks through the flames, laughing. "Well...let's just say he's got some eclectic tastes. I mean...a giant walking zippo lighter to help take over the world?" Then, he smiles calmly. "But then, at least I wasn't born a Catgirl." His fist igniting into flames, he lunges forward at Flare. "I'm afraid you aren't going to hold this position. Eurasia. The Citadel. Cairo. It's time for revenge."

Heat Man misses you with his Flaming Punch attack.

Cold Man continues to trundle along, treading heavily as he goes. Normally he dislikes combat, preferring to render his opponents ineffective, rather than killing or maiming them. But tonight, the orders are to take Repliforce's base, or blow it up. There is no choice but to fight. For the Glory of Wily...

He spots a fox-like reploid standing on the walls, and decides upon her for his target. Generating a jagged piece of ice from one arm emitter, he throws it at the Frcer.

Cold Man misses Moonlight Kitsune with his Generic Ranged attack.
Tomahawk Man sees the attack too late, and takes a minor scratch for his inatentativeness. He will not make the same mistake again. He desides to test his range before bringing out the heavy attacks.

Tomahawk Man misses Skyblade Eagle with his Feather Blade attack.

Flare Feline quickly sidesteps, Heat's going to have to move a bit faster to hit this speedy kitty. "I'm not a girl, flamehead. Of course, I guess you wouldn't know what a girl is, since your entire family is all named 'Man'" And from his position, just off to Heat's side, he quickly lifts one left, the claws on that foot shink out, and he spins on his heel on the other and delivers a nice roundhouse kick to Heat Man. Spinny!

You strike Heat Man with your Feline Fury attack.

Moonlight Kitsune stands on the edge of the wall, bringing her sword up. She moves her head to the side, just a few inches, letting the ice shard zip past her. Her sword glows a bit, as she jumps from the top of the wall, a flurry of fur and steel, as she spins in the light. Landing in a crouch, the white vulpine looks up, and narrows her vision on the Robot master. She smiles, as she says softly, "My name is Moonlight Kitsune... Let our duel begin."

With that, the kitsune whips the huge blade in front of her, a lance of white light firing from the massive sword, towards Cold man.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Gearworks Fox transmits, "who needs the airship more, East Gate or underwater?!"

Crystal Man raises an eyebrow as he notices the Ride Armor leaving. . o O (Curious... perhaps the spirits are on our side tonight.) O o . Of course, he doesn't let this actually *distract* him; he fires a Crystal Eye into the ground near a few gumbies so as to force them to scatter when the orb shatters, making them easier pickings for the Neo Joes.

It's then that he catches a glimpse of Tomahawk Man fighting with... a Repliforcer who appears to have rather sharp talons. He shakes his head a bit -- he knows perfectly well who *else* among his kin doesn't weather bladed weapons well -- and turns to gravity-jet towards the fight, announcing his arrival be hurling a suddely-conjured crystal orb at the Eage reploid.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Bastion transmits, "Neither!"

The samurai rushes in at Arsenal, spinning his spear around himself in a blur of motion. As he does so, he begins to feel a strange sense of disconnectedness from the events around him, his usual battle trance deepening more than usual. The sounds of the surroundings grow more distant, colors blurring into abstraction the further away things are. The dim taste of copper is on his tongue, but he ignores it. No, he must fight on. He cannot retreat. His family is depending on him.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Bastion transmits, "Get your aft UNDERWATER! Now!"

Yamato Man strikes Arsenal Spinosaur with his Spear Twirl attack.
Moonlight Kitsune strikes Cold Man with her Moonbeam Laser attack.

Heat Man grunts as he takes the blow to the chest. "Now, now. I know all about girls. It's why I keep taking Repliforcers on dates. How is Selkie, anyhow?" Then, he arcs an arm forward, carrying a blast of flames with it!

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Bastion transmits, "If they try to take out the pillars, you're the only way that the base will be able to get evacuated, by holding it up."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "What?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Colonel transmits, "Keep all transmissions on a Repliforce only frequency."

Skyblade Eagle backflips out of the way of the feather blade, and then twists out of the attack from Crystal Man, "Oh, what's this? Two little Masters, come to play. You're a bit far from home." She smirks a little bit, "Oh, well, I suppose I'll just need to send you back. In peices." She rockets up into the air, "Eenie meenie minnie moe..." She smirks, "Catch a bullet in your teeth!" She draws both of her handguns and unleashes a barrage of lead towards Crystal Man's head.

Skyblade Eagle strikes Crystal Man with her Dual Beretta 9mm attack.
Arsenal Spinosaur rushes Yamato, meaning to take a chunk out of his armored hide somewhere. His muzzle is met with the master's spear. That muzzle flinches back and away. "Hmph, fine," he says aiming an arm blaster or two at the Master, "Try this!" he roars out, firing.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Skyblade Eagle transmits, "Is there some reason why we, uh, don't want to ask the Hunters for help?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "...what the hell? Someone find out what the hell is going on with Repliforce. The rest of the Hunters -- alert status. Colonel may have his panties in a wad, but be ready for anything."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Ether Skunk transmits, "I'm with the hat here, guys. This channel stands a good chance of bein' compromised."

Flare Feline leaps up into the air to avoid the flameblast "I wouldn't know, I don't speak to her too often." And with that he extends his foot again, to deliver a dropkick. Flare's foot, Heat Man's face. Heat Man's face, Flare's foot. Punt.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Skyblade Eagle transmits, "Yeah, maybe so, sir, but wouldn't it be much easier to just call for some help from time to time, and lay waste to these Wily Wimps?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] RF XO, Colonel transmits, "If we need the Hunters to defend one of our bases, we shouldn't even be bothered trying to defend this world."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] RF Lieutenant Spiral Pegasus transmits, "Hunters, it looks like Wily sent everything and the kitchen sink at New York. Better keep an eye out elsewhere in case Sigma starts getting antsy too."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "Great. Just peachy."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Skyblade Eagle transmits, "I don't see why a little help would hurt."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "With all due respect sir, if the Hunters would be willing to assist we should accept. I don't think the Robot Masters have any reservations with asking for others to help, such as the Bonnes."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "Will do, Pegasus. At least someone doesn't have their head up their waste disposal."

Heat Man grins as he blocks the blow, shifting backwards. "That's a shame. She's sweet. Loves soft music, wine, a good action movie. Great girl. Lots of fun when you take her out." Then, he pulls back as he lets out a quick burst of flames to warm up Flare's landing zone. Hot foot, indeed.

Heat Man misses you with his Flamethrower attack.

Arsenal Spinosaur misses Yamato Man with his Wrist Blasters attack.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] RF XO, Colonel transmits, "Negative. We will not be seeking help from the Hunters in fighting this battle."

[Radio: (B) RepliforceSecure] Quell Quetzalcoatlus transmits, "Any dips yet?"

Tomahawk Man watches Skyblade escape his attack. ...and then saw her dodge a flying gemstone. 'Crystal is joining in on this one?' He then sees his brother take a round of gunfire. 'Well, that's no good.' "Hay, birdy! Dodge this why dontcha?" He whips his headdress forward, sending shrapnal flying.

Flare Feline tries to change his landing angle to avoid the flames, he gets a bit singed, but isn't really hurt thanks to his fire-restant armor. He lands a few feel away from the Zippo, and fires up his palm blaster again, with his claws drawn "Well aren't you nice and calm talking about your dates while trying to claim our headquarters? Maybe thats why you and your sorry lot lose all the time, you get distracted!" And with that he slashes at Heater with his claws, enhanced by a wave of fire.

The samurai's spear bites into the dinosaur's muzzle, Yamato running through the blow as usual. He wobbles a bit, his sense of balance somewhat disturbed by ... whatever is going on in his mind. He turns about to see the blaster leveled at him and dives down, rolling underneath the shot. He rises up, boosted by his dash jets, and takes a swing at Arsenal's head again: this time with the butt of the spear.

You miss Heat Man with your Flame Claw attack.

Yamato Man strikes Arsenal Spinosaur with his Spear Slam attack.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Colonel transmits, "I do not know what that is meant to imply, and I don't want to know. All information about the battle is to be kept on a RF only frequency we know has no yet been compromised."

Tomahawk Man misses Skyblade Eagle with his Headdress Attack attack.

Cold Man raises his left shoulder as Moonlight attacks, and it explodes in a blaze of light as the beam strikes. When the light fades away most of Cold's left shoulderguard has been blown away by the attack, with blackened edges smoking still. "A pleasure perhaps, under other circumstances, Moonlight!" he says, before responding with a melee attack, firing his dash jets and trying to sweep Moonlight Kitsune's feet out from under her with an arm sweep.

Cold Man strikes Moonlight Kitsune with his Slide Punch attack.

Arsenal Spinosaur's muzzle gets knocked aside again by Yamato's spear. Thus making Spino an annoyed Spino. Not enraged at least, enraged is a bad thing. Arsenal hops back a bit. Time for something else. The dinosaur takes one step forward, then spins himself 360 degrees, meaning to slam his tail into the master

Arsenal Spinosaur misses Yamato Man with his Tail Spin attack.

Yamato Man deflects Tail Spin from Arsenal Spinosaur.

Heat Man chuckles as he ducks another shot. "Well, I thought I was being calm and dashing and all the stuff from the movies. Plus the fact that I am concentrating on the fight, it's just that you aren't posing all that much of a challenge." As he speaks, the jewel in Heat's chest suddenly flares to life, and a wide beam of energy shoots out at Flare!

Heat Man strikes you with his Thermal Beam for 6 units of damage.
You take less damage due to your Fire resistances.

Crystal Man unfortunately isn't agile enough to stop himself in mid-dash in time to avoid the hail of old-fashioned gunfire, and thus quite a few bullets lodge in his armor. Fortunately, none of them *quite* get through, but they've opened up quite a few opportunities for later attacks to break the armor.

Noting that this flying Repliforcer seems to actually display some agility, the crystal conjurer opts to use an attack that's a little harder to dodge... He touches his helmet-crystal, using his systems to alter it... it darkens a bit as the light that's going in is all exiting in one direction now -- Skyblade's.

Crystal Man misses Skyblade Eagle with his Reflection Beam attack.

Flare Feline can't move out of the way fast enough this time, and the beam strikes him in the chest. Fortunatly it almost totalyl fizzles out, just leaving a slight burn mark, and a barely melted patch. He smirks a bit "I'm not much of a threat? You'll regret underestimating me..." He shinks his claws into place again and dashes at flameface "I DID kill your Daddy's Duck remember?" *slashies!!*

You miss Heat Man with your Cat Scratch attack.

The samurai rolls down after he makes the strike, leaving himself briefly prone. He gets to his feet and hesitates midway, some vertigo working through his systems. Normally he would have leaped up and made an immediate counterstrike, but his hesitation allows for Arsenal to swing out his massive tail with intent of doing The Big Hurting.
Battle instincts take over where Yamato's consciousness fail, the Gauss magnets at the end of his spear charging up with a green glow. He swings the flat of the spearhead down at the tail, striking it with a crackle of both sparks and Gauss power. The tail's force neutralized, the samurai flips back, flying briefly in the air -- the spearhead opens along the blade with a *vrrt* of Gauss energy, which herald the coming of a series of fletchettes, launched in Arsenal's general direction.

Yamato Man strikes Arsenal Spinosaur with his Spearhead Launcher attack.

Skyblade Eagle jumps up, hanging in the air, "Easy enough." She says to Tomahawk, as she looks back towards Crystal, "What's this? I think not." She twists, the beam slashing past her through the air, as she flaps her wings, "Hrm. Let me think...Oh, I know." She turns towards Tomahawk Man, "Catch!" She fires, launching off a pair of explosive disks, which implant in the ground at Toma's feet. Lets see if he notices.

Skyblade Eagle strikes Tomahawk Man with her Explosive Disk attack.

Moonlight Kitsune erfs, and lands on her back, as Cold Man slams into her. She narrows her eyes, and kips back up, and pulls her massive katana into a more defensive position in front of her. "There is no Pleasure in conflict." She flips one of her kimono sleeves down, and three long, thing throwing knives slip between her fingers. "Let me show you why!" She whips her arm out, sending the daggers towards Cold Man, waiting for the right time to strike with more force.

Moonlight Kitsune strikes Cold Man with her Generic Ranged attack.

Heat Man slips under the haphazard slashes. "I'm starting to think that was a fluke. But we'll see...I'm curious how you'll deal with this." Suddenly, heat's Temprature increases before he flies forward at the Repliforcer!
Slamming his fists together, the temprature around Heat Man increases until flames erupt from his supraheated liquid body!

Heat Man strikes you with his Comet Smash for 5 units of damage.
You take less damage due to your Fire resistances.

Arsenal Spinosaur grunts a bit as his tail is smacked away, not to mention the energy that ripples against his body. He winces a little, staggering every so slightly, "Friggin master..." he growls. He lunges forward this time, meaning to clamp down on Yamato's body with his jaws, thrash him about a bit, then throw him aside. Raar!

Arsenal Spinosaur misses Yamato Man with his Bite And Thrash attack.
Yamato Man deflects Bite And Thrash from Arsenal Spinosaur.

Flare Feline is struck dead in the chest again, but he takes a few steps back, armor dented a bit again, but no worse for wear still it seems. "A fluke eh? Well it'll take one BIG fluke for you guys to take Repliforce HQ from us!!" He closes his fist and opens it, forming another fireball, slightly bigger. He growls and flings it at Zippo Man.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "Are there any submergables that can be spared to move underwater?"

You strike Heat Man with your Pulse Break attack.

Moonlight Kitsune puts her guard up.

Heat Man is finally hit by the blasts Flare seems to chuck around like tennis balls. "Better." Then, he unleashes a sudden roiling wave of flames from his body! "But We're still going to win."

Heat Man strikes you with his Flame Halo for 1 units of damage.
You take less damage due to your Fire resistances.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Command Major Slash Beast transmits, "Do you require a ship or a combatant? I can provide the latter, but not the former."

Tomahawk Man is knocked onto his back. "This isn't going very well..." Getting up, he looks for somthing to leap off of to get him some altatude. ...and in the end used one of the gumbies. "Chef Sitting Bull!"

Cold Man isn't one of the fastest Masters around. As he moves to stand up again, Moonlight's throwing knives strike him on the right of his torso. The daggers cut in, but not very deeply, and Cold responds...well, coldly. "I take no pleasure in conflict. But tonight it is deemed necessary." And with that, a mist cascades from his right arm as ice crstallises along it's length, and he jumps forward, attempting to strike Moonlight.

Cold Man strikes Moonlight Kitsune with his Cold Crunch attack.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "We require a combatant. We're a bit outnumbered here and Ballade is doing a lot of damage."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Artillery Chasmosaurus transmits, "I've got Ballade handled, for now."

Yamato lands on both feet, his balance returning to him with the landing. Some of the weird disconnectedness starts to pass as he gets fully fired up into the battle, optics flickering from his growing excitement. He maintains his clinical focus as the spearhead closes up silently, preparing for the next strike -- which comes abruptly.
The dinosaur charges him, looking to take a bite out of crime the old fashioned way. His optics flash bright gold for an instant as the dinosaur rushes, time seeming to slow down -- he sees what will happen before the event occurs, and acts on it. He initiates a complex kata, so quick as to leave blurry afterimages in its wake. The jaws are struck back just as the body mass threatens to overwhelm him -- he vaults up into the air, flying over the dinosaur for a moment to get entirely clear. Then, in the split-second before Arsenal can react, he stabs down at his midsection with his spear in an effort to execute a fly-by stabbing.

Yamato Man misses Arsenal Spinosaur with his Spear Stab attack.

Flare Feline stands there and weathers the flames almost totally unneffected. "Well... you barely singed some of my facial fur with that one..." Woo DBZ quote!! And now he... closes his eyes? "You won't win. Can't you...see?" At which point he then opens his eyes where a blinding flash is emitted from them, a blinding /stunning/ flash. Meow!

You miss Heat Man with your Feral Eyes attack.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Command Major Slash Beast transmits, "I will assist those under water, then, although my efficiency is lessened there."

. o O (She's good,) O o . Crystal Man silently notes as Skyblade continues to dish out harm while avoiding everything thrown at her. . o O (It is good that I came... likely neither of us could take her on alone safely.) O o . While considering this, the mystic also creates a rainbow of prefaceted gems in his cupped hands while carefully watching the eagle's movements... and, once she moves to dodge Tomahawk's next strike, thrusts his hands forward and upward and sends the jewels skyward with a gravity-burst from his hands -- hopefully catching her in mid-dodge.

Crystal Man strikes Skyblade Eagle with his Gemstone Spray attack.

Heat Man blinks. "Did someone try to convince you that you had a timestopper? Or that you had some kind of appeal? If the former, get your money back. If the latter, I'm straight." Then, he cools down, but the energy clearly isn't going too far, as another powerful blast suddenly erupts from Heat's hands at Flare's legs and the ground beneath his feet!

Heat Man smiles, his body cooling until the air around him extinguishes, and he stands revealed in his normal form.

Heat Man misses you with his Napalm attack.

And equally as slow, Arsenal's muzzle is thwacked upward, but those eyes never leave Yamato. His claws drag into the ground, his legs push hard toward his right, and the Spino narrowly avoids said spear. As the bullet time continues, the dinosaur makes a leap of his own, meaning to strike Yamato with that sail. He twists, making his back face the airborn threat, and leaps upward, spinning like some sort of sega mascot as the sail hums with energy. End bullet time, he spins a little more and plants himself onto the ground, looking to look at the aftermath.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Hailstorm Couatl transmits, "We need some assistance with this Ride Armor here.Aerial assistance only. Ground Aid is useless."

Arsenal Spinosaur misses Yamato Man with his Sail Somersault attack.

Yamato Man deflects Sail Somersault from Arsenal Spinosaur.

Moonlight Kitsune holds her sword in front of her, in hopes to block the cascade of ice particles, but mistimes it, and is slammed full on by the ice, her kimono icing up around her. She narrows her eyes a bit, and grips the massive katana in both hands, lowering her guard, as she charges towards Cold Man, trying to keep her footing as she charges, since Cold Man seems to be causing more than enough traction hazards about with his ice weapons. Either way, Moonlight's charge takes her towards Cold, her sword arching from behind her, leaving an after image as it slices through the air, in front of her, in hopes to cut Cold a nasty wound.

Moonlight Kitsune strikes Cold Man with her Moonlight Slice attack.
Moonlight Kitsune puts her guard down.

Flare Feline hmphs and leaps up into the air again, does a neat little acrobat spinning thing and sails down towards the Zippo again, this time with neither claw blaster out, but his fangs "Are those pitiful fire blasts ALL you can do?" Hmm, his helmet looks tasty, I wonder if it's edible. CHOMP! Mmm, meow mix.

Skyblade Eagle dodges back away from Tomahawk, only to move into the path of the attack from Crystal Man, "Okay." She mutters a bit, "Now you've gone and upset me." She dusts herself off, and glances back and forth between the two, "Lets see...I think...This'll work." The sound of her engines charging can be heard, before she rockets herself up into the air, flying straight up, and disapearing as a dot into the night.

But what's that? Is that...Something that's glowing green is rocketing towards the battlefield from way up high...It's Skyblade, surrounded by her glowing green ion aura, "TIME'S UP!" She yells out, as she sails right for Tomahawk again, shoulder first, at far beyond supersonic speeds...

You strike Heat Man with your Cat Nip attack.

Skyblade Eagle misses Tomahawk Man with her Dive Bomb attack.

Tomahawk Man saw the attack coming, and sidesteps out of the way. He quickly retaliates with a roundhouse kick.

Tomahawk Man strikes Skyblade Eagle with his Smash attack.

Heat Man blinks. "First you try to pose for me. Then you BITE me. Are you some kind of a fruit, like that Fashionable guy? What is it with Repliforce? The return of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell?'" Regardless of whatever Flare says, the blasts that Heat's unleashing into his chest will probably muffle things. "Besides...I like fire. I'm good at it. No shame with doing what you know."

Heat Man strikes you with his Flame Hold for 8 units of damage.
You take less damage due to your Fire resistances.

The samurai flies by after his strike misses, seeing the huge dinosaur starting to roll up after him. He flips over in the air sentai-style, using his dash jets to throw himself sharply into the ground. His head strikes hard turf, mental sparks flying from the sheer force of the blow. He loses conscious memory of the next few moments, his body running on some sort of strange auto-pilot...
Yamato's body jerks up as the sail rushes at him, the Gauss charge in his spearhead coming back. Using brute force, the samurai strikes at the side of the fin, sending it slightly off-course before throwing himself hard to the left, causing the fin to miss him with a wide enough margin so he can escape.
He rolls up and tosses himself to his feet with one hand, almost seeming to fall /up/ from the strangeness of the force. He spins his spear around himself in a kata as the spinosaur regains his feet, then runs at him full-tilt, gripping his spear in a foreign formation -- one even he has no name for -- and striking down sharply at the dinosaur from right to left.

Yamato Man strikes Arsenal Spinosaur with his Spear Slash attack.

Crystal Man gravity-jets forward, both his hands alight with yellow-white energy, as the eagle Repliforcer actually nears the ground. Just after Tomahawk's kick hits Skyblade, the master of jewels reaches to almost touch her and throws his crystal-generation systams into overdrive, trying to trap the bladed bird in crystal before she can get into the air again.

Cold Man is struck in an explosion of sparks as the katan strikes him full on in the chest, cutting an ugly opening in his torso armour. He staggers back, nearly losing his balance before recovering, the pain screaming at him before it fades only slightly, to a dull throbbing. Moving a bit awkwardly, he straightens up, and two panels on either side of his chest, fortunately missed by Moonlight's attack, flips open. The powerful blizzard generators begin to whine, and as Cold activates his sub-zero generators, a blast of wind akin to the breath of the North Pole rushes towards Moonlight Kitsune.

Crystal Man strikes Skyblade Eagle with his Crystal Encase attack.
Skyblade Eagle is temporarily disoriented by Crystal Man's Crystal Encase attack.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "These "demons" are tough, but East Wall is holding its ground."

Flare Feline is caught up in the blast again, but manages to leap back a few feet away. Again not really hurt by that one attack, but all the consecutive attacks up to now seem to start to wear on him. Though he stands straight and snarls "Ok, first of all, do /NOT/ compare me to that jerk!" He gets into some sort of pre-running pose, eyes on Heat Man who is just ahead of him, his legs tense as it looks like he's about to sprint "And first you call me a girl, then a fruit? Feh, you'd wish flameface." And with that he dashes right /at/ Heat Man, as he does so, his body flares up with heat, the faster Flare moves you see, the hotter it becomes... well we have ALL sorts of sexual innuendos tonight don't we?

Arsenal Spinosaur yelps, roaring out of pain more then anything else as the spear slams against him. Grunting a little, he turns toward Yamato, his side somewhat tore open. "Fine, I'll play your weapons game..." he mutters. What could he mean? Him? A melee weapon? Well not really. There's a loud pop of something unlocking. The sail seems to flinch upward. His hand reaches back for the handle on his sail. He grins, pulling it loose. "My turn..." he says leaping into the air again, only to heave the massive sail toward Yamato mercilessly. The sail, as before, ripples with energy as it flies it's arc, meaning to return to it's master once it's done.

You strike Heat Man with your 9-lives attack.
You rebound off of Heat Man, taking 4 units of damage.

Skyblade Eagle isn't having good luck this time, as she gets blasted by the kick, which sends her stumbling, and getting wrapped up with the crystal, "What the hell?!" She cries, before she gets stuck.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Archer Colossus transmits, "I got the gates...or what's left of them. I'm not moving."

Moonlight Kitsune blinks, as she notices the twin generators, and uses her momentium to send her flipping over Cold Man, and grins. She watches the robot master miss her completely, and grins. "Oh... I do hope that you do plan on defending yourself at some point...", she says, and spins around, letting all 8 of her tails try and slap against Cold man, as she turns to face him.

Moonlight Kitsune strikes Cold Man with her Multitail Slap attack.

Heat Man yeows as he's bullcharged. "Ooof." Then, he grins. "Well, that hurts, but you know what, for someone who keeps insisting he's straight, you're the one grappling my waist, you sick little man..." Then,laughing darkly, he smiles. "On the other hand, you're at close range now. So this will hurt." Suddenly, Heat's entire upper body flares out, and a massive blast shatters out at and around the Repliforcer!

Heat Man misses you with his Atomic Fire attack.

[Radio: (E) RF-Chatter] Proteus Fox transmits, "OOC: Someone ask an admin, I think this would be one of those times, after all, where do you fall back to when your base is under attack?"

Tomahawk Man, still on the return spin from the roundhouse, introduces the flat side of his namesake to the side of Skyblade's head.

Flare Feline stares at the oncoming ball of searing firey death. Is it too late? Can Flare not react? Tch, you should know better. Flare pulls off his favorite dodging move and leaps... straight up into the air. The fireball clears up underneath him, and soars into a crowd of gumbies, killing some forcers and Neo Joes, oh well. As he's airborn, he aims both of his hands down at Heat Man, double blasters open and a giant fireball of his own charging up. "Alright flameface, I'm tired of all the sexual jokes. You're the one with the psycho creator who surrounds himself with a bunch of robots all named Man." The fireball gets larger and fires straight downward at the unlucky master underneath him "Dry up and die!!"

You miss Heat Man with your Flare Pulse attack.

Tomahawk Man strikes Skyblade Eagle with his Tomahawk Bash attack.

Crystal Man creates a yellow spear of crystal in his hands while Tomahawk attacks, though instead of stabbing, he swings it much like a quarterstaff, hoping to catch the avial while she's still off-balance from Tomahawk's strike.

Cold Man becomes slightly irritated with himself as he misses Moonlight. And then he gets thwacked from behind by Moonlight's tails, denting his back armour somewhat. Twisting around as Moonlight lands again, he makes no reply, concentrating on his next attack, this time both arms drip mist as they are encased in ice, and Cold dashes towards Moonlight, hoping to strike her with a one-two.

Crystal Man strikes Skyblade Eagle with his Crystal Bash attack.
Cold Man strikes Moonlight Kitsune with his Cold Calamity attack.
Heat Man blinks. "Dry up and die?" Even as the fire starts burning around him, he can't help but laugh, long and loud. "DRY UP AND DIE? You're trying to end a massively drawn out climactic fight, and the best you can figure out is "Dry up and die?" Then, a huge fist suddenly slings a burst of flames at the 'forcer. "I am NOT impressed. Time for kitty to get sent to the vet."

Skyblade Eagle grunts as the crystal coating is shattered, and she's knocked down, in time to take the hit from the staff, rolling down and into a crouch, "Now...I'm mad." She says, glaring, "You don't know what pain is!" She rockets up into the air, and looks down, glancing around at the Masters, "Alright Robot Masters! GET OFF OUR ISLAND!" Her weapons systems are humming, loudly, as she looks down between the various Masters, having a good vantage point from where she is, "TAKE THIS!" Turning, she fires towards Tomahawk, first, launching a grouping of rapid fire alloy disks in his direction, then turns to Crystal and repeats, twisting over towards Heat Man, blasting those disks in his direction. Cold Man is next, and Yamato Man last, as her weapons systems click, having full depleted herself of alloy blades...Never done that before..

As Flare lands, he is engulfed in the flames, no way to dodge this one. But again, he's not really hurt. But the wear of the entire fight is... well, wearing on him. Also Flare's not one for snappy remarks, he's not Jet. He chuckles as prepares to dash again "And I find it funny that a giant walking zippo is talking to me about being stupid." He dashes, the claws on his feet shink into place, and he delivers a nice ol' spinkick again. Spinny!

Moonlight Kitsune erfs, and is slammed into by the two ice incased fists. She stumbles back, and rubs her cheek and shoulder some. Her tongue licks over her lips, as a bit of crimson appears on them. Seems she's more damaged than she'd like to show, but the pale kitsune narrows her eyes on Cold Man, and pulls her guard up, her massive sword pulling around to guard her from attacks, before lashing out with a kick, trying to put just enough distance between her and her opponent, so she can mount a better offense.

Moonlight Kitsune misses Cold Man with her Kick attack.

Moonlight Kitsune puts her guard up.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "I think I shall be there in a moment."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "I said, head to the western beach. Next person who disobeys an orde... Fortress III...open fire on that punk."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "which punk, sir!? there's three or more of them down here, and I'm firing at the only one slow enough to be in sights at the moment, sir!"

The samurai returns to normal consciousness, disoriented from the abrupt shift in position as he finishes running through the overhead strike. He turns to face his enemy, standing unsteadily again, optics flickering between white and red. He seems somehow ... confused?
As the sail comes racing at him, he tries to bat it away -- assuming it will behave like a fan rather than a powered weapon. His kata misses, though -- and he takes it in the chest, mech-fluid and sparks flying! He `sails' back as the blade embeds itself into him and rips itself back out, rolling across the ground for a moment from the outright violence of the blow.
The first wound of the battle is always the worst. He pulls himself up, unsteady, coughing up mech-fluid even as his repair systems try to hemmorage the mech-fluid that starts to flow out of him at a fair rate. Smoke and sparks surround him like a corona, his optics slowly going from white to pink.
// "...Weak. Not even the gift of a robot body can make you a formidable foe." Holding his blade absently at his side, the Strider stares at Yamato Man, the lack of the slightest emotion apparent in his jade green eyes. "Go home and train." //
// And now, a mere foot away from his opponent, Strider Hiryu gives Yamato Man a flat gaze, scowling. "You're finished." //
The samurai's rage starts to fill him, sparks jumping across his body. The pain, the insane pain -- the pain he cannot escape, no matter what he does, no matter how deeply he meditates; the constant agony of defeat he has fixated on for month after month. Death, death by a human, death by an inferior, death by a man who /did not care/ about the battle he was fighting. A loveless, passionless death. A death he DID NOT DESERVE!
The blades fall down around him like a torrent of rain, but the blades cannot cut him. Nothing can cut him now, as the Gauss energy from his spear begins to flicker out and swirl around him. Sparks connect from the end of his spear to his helmet, conducting around his optics. They go a deep, rolling crimson, the power beginning to build. He will not be denied. He will not be stopped. He /will/ finish this.
He allows a scream to rip out of him as the last of the blades fall, throwing back his head -- smoke and fire puff out of his wound from the sheer stress of it, the madness overtaking him. The power, the glorious power, runs through his metal veins -- and to go mad is a liberation unlike any Yamato has felt before.
<< "DEMON OF THE OUTER WORLD!" >> he bellows in Japanese, insanity making his words tremble. << "YOU END! YOU WILL NEVER PLAGUE MY FAMILY AGAIN! DIEEEEE!!!" >>
And he launches forward, running at Arsenal at full speed before leaping into the air, looking to land a jump-kick right on his snout. The beast has been freed from its cage -- and it will not stop until it has been sated.

Yamato Man strikes Arsenal Spinosaur with his Martial Arts attack.

Tomahawk Man whinces, but shrugs off the attack. "I get worse than this in ~TRAINING~!" Though this is true, one of the little disks had loged itself into his faceplate. He is not happy about that. In fact he is rather upset about that. As his Silver Tomahawk begins glowing, he takes a running start before sending it flying twords his intended target.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "*explosiony sounds, and Flare arging in pain* Ack.... *grunt* I've about done all I can... North Wall could use some back up. I'll try and evacuate to the Fortress III, Skyblade, you're in charge here."

Flare Feline can't get out of the way this time. It's over for the firekitty.

Arsenal Spinosaur gets his muzzle planted rather firmly into the ground. Mrfing a little, coughing even at the hit as his body follows suit, slumping to the ground. Growling slightly though, he starts to rise. He doesn't care what Yamato said, he just wants to kill him now. So, that muzzle opens. Is he going to say something? Not really. There's a swell of energy there. Blue sparks syphon into the muzzle before he closes it a moment, he wsa inhaling? The dinosaur lets out an ear peircing roar as the cannon in the back of his throat fires a solid pillar of blue energy toward Yamato. Train this...

Tomahawk Man strikes Skyblade Eagle with his Silver Tomahawk attack.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "West Shore... God... anyone who goes down, get to the west short...."

Luckily for Cold Man, he can see the kick coming, and leans to one side, dash jets firing to get him out of the way, even if it is only by a few feet. By strange fortune, the manuever also carries him out of the path of Skyblade's discs, which dig into the ground. Blinking as Moonlight is seemingly prepared for any reprisal, he decides to see if he can stun her for a moment. His head flips open, and a small spherical drone pops out, immediately jetting for Moonlight, streaming so fast that it's cloud of fog normally used to disguise itself is useless.

Cold Man misses Moonlight Kitsune with his Cloud Drone attack.

Moonlight Kitsune deflects Cloud Drone from Cold Man.

Flare Feline can't get out of the way this time. It's over for the firekitty. Standing, parts of his melted armor drip off, it's fire resistant, but that was too much. He snarls at Heat Man "Well it looks like that psycho creator of your can do something right after all. But don't think you'll win today, we got the home base advantage, we'll beat you off." And now it looks like he's about to run, but before he does, he gets an oddly sly idea. He mocks a surprised look and looks beyond Heat Man, and says "Oh hi Selkie" Whether he looks or not, Flare turns around and bolts out of there.

Flare Feline retreats from the area swiftly, leaving him open to pursuit or parting shots from Skyblade Eagle.

Skyblade Eagle strikes you with her Just Bring It for 0 units of damage.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock is silent for a moment.

Crystal Man ducks the first disk aimed at him, then springs upward from that position to avoid the rest, as each successive one heading his way is a bit lower. His audials perk up as he hears Yamato Man's cry, and frowns a bit behind his face mask... then winces as he hears the radio warnings.

. o O (It would seem that matters are worse than Yamato Man will admit...) O o .

Observing Heat Man's warning, Crystal Man gravity-jets a few yards further away from Yamato Man, creating an orange crystal boomerang in his left hand at the same time. He turns on his heel quite suddenly, then flings it towards his opponent...

Crystal Man strikes Skyblade Eagle with his Crystal Throw attack.

"RRAAAAAAA!!!" yells Yamato as the kick connects, flipping back and landing on his feet perfectly. The wobble is gone, with pure skill replacing it. The samurai's eyes are blazing with red light, almost to the point of illuminating the features behind his facemask. He continues to scream, louder and louder, as he builds himself into an insane battle fury.
// "Weak ..." //
// "Go home and train..." //
As the cannon reveals itself, the samurai has no fear -- he executes a highly complex kata, glowing green light issuing forth from the end of the spear like the shimmer of a beam saber. The kata is too fast to track, but the results are visible -- when the energy strikes out, it scatters in all directions like a cloud, evaporating into little more than a haze.
The moment the haze starts to fade, the samurai rushes in at Arsenal at full speed, screaming out in raving madness. He is not fast, and the force behind the blow is distributed by his rage. As he runs in, the glow of his optics starts to change, flickering ... is he starting to come around?

Yamato Man strikes Arsenal Spinosaur with his Kamikaze Charge attack.
Yamato Man puts his guard down.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, " FORTRESS III, TAKING WATER!!! *alarm klaxons sound in background, along with a horribly shuddering screeeeech* "We've been rammed by a WilyWorm! I'm gonna try and disable the worm by taking the fortress abovewater! I've done about all I can down here anyway! We're sinking if I dont get her up!"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Rock transmits, "Hang tight, Repliforce. We're dispatching in a matter of minutes."

Skyblade Eagle lets out a cry as the blade impacts her, grunting and pulling it out, tossing it to the ground, before she's nailed by the boomerang, "GRah." She grumbles at the alarms in her head, "No! I can go on!" She sighs, "This isn't over." She glares at Crystal, "You'll die at my hands. Both of you." And with that, she takes off towards the southwest..

Skyblade Eagle retreats from the area swiftly, outdistancing all pursuit and parting shots.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Thank you."

Skyblade Eagle has left.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Bastion grumbles slightly. "No...evac of wounded alone." And it's damn apparent, he's not happy.

Tomahawk Man looks over to Crystal Man. "That went well."

Arsenal Spinosaur staggers back, just one step or two as the blow plants itself in his chest. He growls a bit, "That's it... you die..." he mutters dropping onto his front arms as well. He wasn't scared of one cannon? How about -twenty-. All of Arsenal's cannons come on line, energy surging into each and every barrel as his generators go full tilt, there whining can be heard easily by those near by. A few more moments, twenty pillars of blue energy scream toward Yamato, looking to tear him into little bitty pieces.

Arsenal Spinosaur misses Yamato Man with his Cataclysm attack.

Heat Man watches the situation start to turn. The Master assault is carrying. Repliforcers are beginning to fall back. "MASTERS! NEO-JOES! FORM FOR THE PUSH! FORWARD! FORWARD! FORWARD!" And so they move, the battle raging as the Masters and Joes attempt to push the weakening lines to the breaking point.

Crystal Man nods in agreement. "We work together well," the mystic agrees. His gaze returns to Yamato Man, however... concern finally showing through in his X-ray-like blue optics.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "damn! Void Starfish is down! the starfish is DOWN! Dispatching SAR for her!"

Moonlight Kitsune narrows her eyes, and whips her sword in front of her, knocking the drone away from her, as she bolts towards Cold Man. Her sword glows bright, as she charges, the sword swing in front of her, as she narrows her eyes on Cold. "Play time ends... This ends NOW!"

The massive blade trails light, as the kitsune's tails spread wide, soaking up light from around her. The sword hilt glows bright, as she jumps high, and comes falling down towards Cold Man. The katana points upward, as she falls downward, leaving a huge glow in the air as she passes. Time seems to slow, as the blade whips downward, towards the robot master, an after image of a crest moon left behind, as the Kitsune tries to send the burning edge of the Katana into Cold's frame.

Moonlight Kitsune strikes Cold Man with her Crescent Moon Slash attack.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "North Wall's defense have... failed. Our Marine squads seem to be being beaten back as well. I think Arsenal Spinosaur remains there fighting Yamato Man. But the whole of our forces there are beaten. We could /really/ have used some extra help here... (Also not very happy with the Colonel's decision it seems)"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "..."

Tomahawk Man follows Crystal Man's gaze. He grons. "...oh no, not that dino again..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "Attention SAR team! Don't touch Void directly if you can help it! She drains energy from anything that touches her!"

[Radio] You send Iris a direct message: "I'm sorry, I can't do more. Though I think this would have gone better if we had some help..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Burn Dinorex transmits, " Yes, Bastion?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Status of the pylons? Tell me they're still intact?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Hailstorm Couatl transmits, "Assistance needed desperately! Valiant Falcon has fallen, and I am the only one standing against this Ride Armor! Assistance of any kind would be of great help!"

The squads of gumbie marines begin to fall back as they become overwhelmed by the Neo Joes. Heavy losses on both sides, but the surviving Marines make their way south and head for the evac area. They've failed. And there's nothing worse on a soldiers heart than failing to defend their home.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Aerial Division Commander Ten transmits, "We can't seem to stop the Gustav! The generators by the wast walls are in danger! Oh no, a giant ball of plasma was just fired from the Gesellschaft at the generators! Oh no!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "holding, barly! I've taken one Wilyworm offline, I'm trying to take the other topside with my retreat!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "forget about me holding up the island with this ship, the hull's compromised!"

Heat Man turns as he pushes the Joes onwards to check on the remaining pockets of resistance.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Proteus Fox transmits, "OOC Magicly avoid? In others words someone needs their twinky ass smacked upside the head?"

Indeed, time seems to slow for both Moonlight Kitsune and Cold Man, as the blade descneds, it is too fast for him to move, too fast for him to dodge, too fast even to throw up his arms in some sort of defence. The sword is dead-on, piercing the jagged wound in Cold's chest, and going straight through the Master, transfixing him. He utters no words, as electricity courses over his frame, mechfluids gush out of his chest and back, and he goes limp, arms shaking as they reach out towards Moonlight, whether in one last vain attack or in supplication, who knows?

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Hailstorm Couatl transmits, "*sounds of shots being traded* Some assistance aginst this ride armor would really be quite useful. Anyone available?"

The samurai charges into Arsenal, then springs back; he rolls down to a crouch and holds his spear neutrally in front of himself, red optics flickering on and off erratically.
// "Weak ..." //
// "Go home ..." //
// "Go ..." //
And he hears his Father's voice in the back of his mind as the cannons power up, the blue light reflecting off the gold of his armor. He continues to stand there, seemingly enrapt. He hears his voice, and it speaks to him.
// "Omega System, version 0.9.1 ... to be used in ... *static* ... to give tactical advantage over that meddling Light. We will integrate it ... ing -- ... *static* Go forth, my child, and fight!" //
The samurai's optics blink out, and the cannons fire. The explosion rips around him, the ground being torn apart as the nightmarish arsenal is leveled against him. A plume of dirt and fire rises up as the bombardment finishes, and it would seem that the samurai has succumbed to it. But when the smoke clears...
The samurai stands still, the scar on his chest knitting slowly from his auto repair systems. His armor is stained black from the singed dirt and his own blood, only the W remaining pure. He holds his spear in front of him in a new formation, turning it slowly in his hands. His optics are no longer red ... they glow with a dim gold hue. An odd spark leaps out from behind his eyes as the samurai lowers himself down, almost as if in a dream... His joints hum as he braces his hands around his spear, the storm in his mind cleared.
There is no Hiryu. There is only DWN 48, WILY Yamato, the Commanding Officer of Zeta Squad, and one of his Father's champions.
<< "Now ... /die/." >> says the samurai, with supreme calm, before bursting forward in a burst of fire and afterimages. He breaks into an insanely complex kata, the spear spinning so fast that the air whistles around it like the coming of a storm. The spearhead glows with an eerie green light, the monofiliment flaring up from the power put into this one incredible burst of offense. It is awesome. It is terrifying.
It is the Spear Frenzy.

Moonlight Kitsune stands there, holding onto her sword, as Cold tries to reach for her. She doesn't even seem to blink, as she's suprised the Robot master is still standing, let alone is in one piece.

New York - Repliforce Island

Repliforce Island is simply that, an artificial area that has grown so much its now its own seperate Island of New York City. Mazes of rampways, bridges, and shafts give access to the Island, as hovercars, hoverboats, and barges constantly move from New York City's main area to Repliforce Island. In the center of the island is the sprawling dome of Repliforce Headquarters, surrounding by small, futuristic Reploid housing developments and such. Its like a mininature city within a City, situated around RHQ.

Lucent is second out of the Vorpal after Ether, skidding to a stop in the VTOL's shadow and waiting for the walking wounded--or trouble--to come his way. And then jumps, as something brushes across his senses. "D-Did ANYONE h-hear th-that?" -That- being the first little trembles of the shockwave from below.

From RHQ - North Walls, And thus, the last bastion of hope on this side of the wall, well except for Moonlight, is struck, repeatedly. Critcally as well. The Dinosaur, staggers at the first few hits. A few more hits, and the cannon on his side goes.. after that, the generator IN his right side goes, taking all the cannons on his right side right down with it. Wincing, grunting, and wimpering, the spino collapses onto his right side... *thud*

At the order to evacuate, though, the minimedic flies into action, grabbing the nearest walking wounded and dragging them forcibly to the Vorpal, half-yelling, half-stuttering commands to get seated.

From RHQ - Gates, A yowl comes from the red streak that comes slamming into the ground after Strike's attack. Crash begins to climb back to his feet, only to find that his ears ring so badly from the attack that he ends up teetering back down to his knees. Grasping at his head with a hand, firey golden eyes peer from under the helm of his visor at Strike to see what he does next.

Alloy is out straight after the other two, looking around at the chaos of the evacuation, before diving into the mess and hauling wounded into the Vorpal.

Artillery Chasmosaurus needs no help walking. Her stabilizers are fully functional, at least. She waves aside the medic to deal with more pressing injuries as she steps into the ship.

Artillery Chasmosaurus has left.

Repliforce Air Platform <Fortress III> has arrived.

Ether Skunk mutters, hopping off the craft and doing as directed... easing a few Repliforce troops a long, but largely scouting, keeping her eyes out for any approaching nasties. She's really the only combat-designed one here, after all, so it's her job to protect the others.

From RHQ - North Walls, Did I forget to mention that Cold Man collapses, nonfunctional, not long after? Well he did.

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion is charged down, and run into the ground. Despite that, his voice-box booms, "All units evacuate!" But then, Bastion's optics befall Enker, and just glare, completely at him for the longest moment. "If I go down with it... so do you!" With that, he snaps a handcuff onto one of his own hands and launches the other, with extended wiring, toward Enker's arm.

From Waters Beneath RHQ, As Slash bites into Dive's leg, the marine terror decides that the proper course of action would be to repeatedly beat the Beast on the head until he lets go. And since they're floating underwater, and there's a lot of large, solid objects around, he decides to try and ram into one of the said objects, Beast-first.

From RHQ - Gates, "And if I'm so shoddy...", begins Archer as he steps back, "How come I keep taking everything you can throw at me?" snorts the 'forcer, as he begins setting his arms and fists aflame. "****, I guess I could expect that from an android superiorist who needs spikes all over his body to be a man, huh?" screams Archer, even as the radio blares in his audio receptors. He takes another step back as Quint drops, and grins cruelly. "You little ****! Time to pay." laughs Archer, as he begins lunging to punch at the Sakugarne-mounted Quint, with a right cross, left hook, and a flaming uppercut.

From RHQ - Gates, Enker stares down at the cuff, having momentarily been distracted by his radio. He immediately begins to laugh, however. "You think this can hold me, boy?"

From RHQ - Gates, Crash Man grinds his teeth in preparation of the attack he knows he can't avoid this time around. And it looked kind of nasty being shot at the ground, so he rather doesn't want to imagine the pain that tears through his processor as it hits. Life sucks that way though. Falling back onto the ground, on his back, he manages to lift himself up enough to fire off in retaliation. "Where the heck do you think you're going, tuberat?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Flare Feline transmits, "What's left of the North Wall defense team heading to the evac area. We got some pretty badly wounded here."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "MSE, I'm heading for medbay and setting charges."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Bastion transmits, "Screw this...Hunters...assistance needed to recover those in the North and East areas.... they're not all able to get there. Everyone near the remains of the gates....get to the Fortress....now."

A flash of light, a blaze of a path across the sky, and then the materialization of a form amidst the ruined battlements on the border of the base's makeup. With purple armor, Vile is far out of his element amongst the company of a Robot Master invasion. But he just couldn't resist the opportunity to watch the fall of a place long in his memories and dreams. Arms crossed over his thick chest, the Maverick General stands and stares for a few moments, before raising a set of electronic binoculars to his visor, peering through them and staring off towards the battle.

Maverick Hunter VTOL <Vorpal> powers up slightly, guns whining violently as they spin up, then erupting in the roar of gunfire, directed at keeping people AWAY from the wounded and their tenders. Apparently, whomever is piloting has decided to help out a bit further.

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion sends a radio transmission to Anthem.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "Everybody evac, use what you can. I'm gonna set the mainframe to blow, if we go down."

Lucent looks up from his leading others to the Vorpal, spotting Flare's devestated squad. He darts across the battlefield in a blur of blue and green for the injured feline, calling to them aloud and over the radio. "Th-this w-way! M-move as f-fast as you c-can, c-carry the w-wounded if you h-have t-to!"

From RHQ - Gates, Burn Dinorex lets out a low growl as his flames to go waste, having no effect on the frosty Robot Master. The smack makes the dinosuar reel, adding to his fury. "I will not be beaten by a child!" He snarls, and flames begin to build up around him. Burn Dinorex slowly rises to his full hight, glaring ay Frost Man as his optics turn from yellow to a dull red. "You and your brethren have assaulted this island... The island I swore to protect! My allies are falling like flies! You!" Burn Dinorex levels a finger at Frost Man. "You... think this is all a game? Sending Repliforce Island to the bottom of the water is a game? For all this and more, you will pay! You will fall, fall to my rage! I will have revenge for the loss of my island!" Burn Dinorex roars, and flames build around him. The ones on his back rise and flicker, and flames leap from his jaws. With a deafening roar, the massive dinosaur Reploid unleashes his most powerful attack, unleashing a rush of bursting flames at Frost Man.

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion sends a radio transmission.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Lucent transmits, "Anyone kn-know wh-where that signal is c-coming f-from?!"

Alloy is just helping wonded Repliforcers onto the Vorpal. His eyes widen slightly as he hears a radio conversation between another Hunter and his friend, but shakes his head and continues working.

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion receives a radio transmission.

[Radio] You send Bastion a direct message: "I'm sorry I couldn't defend any better, North Wall is my responsibility..."

Hailstorm Couatl has arrived.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Selene Chantrell transmits, "*weak voice, static everywhere*Selene here, for MSE... We're in no shape to argue... Fusion Phoenix meltdown... averted... powering down to life-support only... Over..."

Alloy has left.

Shadow Man arrives from the Main Courtyard - RHQ.
Shadow Man has arrived.

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion sends a radio transmission.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Five minutes. You've got five minutes to get off this island."

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion receives a radio transmission.

Ether Skunk shoves past whoever's in the way on seeing Flare Feline approach, and sets up guard, escorting him. "That way," she says, pointing towards the vorpal in the not-so-distance. "Get on. Quick. I'll cover you."

From RHQ - Gates, "Because.." Punk replies with a smug air. He hops back, giving himself a foot more of breathing room to ladle out his next attack. With both hands affixed over the handle, the hammer is raised into the air. The 8 foot metal weapon gleams perfectly in the flashes of battle, even moreso as it's internal gravity generator thrums to life. "I enjoy playing with my toys before I BREAK them!" Just as it seems he's about to swing that weapon, Punk suddenly uses his left hand to reach out and grab Quint by the scruff of his neck! "Ever get beaten by a wussy before? Heh heh hah, you're about to." Behold, the mighty swing of the wussy! Maim, wussy, maim!

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "at four minutes, this ship leaves port... four minutes... move it."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Archer Colossus transmits, "Good. Five minutes to wedge my foot in Punk's aft."

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion sends a radio transmission.

Valiant Falcon has arrived.

From Waters Beneath RHQ, Ballade moves far to quickly, and is much too close to cover for him to get caught in the attack by Slash Beast. With a final quick jet, he vanishes inside the Wily Mole, leaving the hatch open for his allies.

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion receives a radio transmission.
Lucent sends a radio transmission.

Flare Feline is one of the only members of the North Wall squad that can still walk under his own power, all those that can walk are carrying those that can't, they trudge along as fast as they can towards the Vorpal, under enemy fire, but they move on. THey have to live, live and heal, and take back what will be taken from them.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Quell Quetzalcoatlus transmits, "I can pick up someone. Who needs an evac at the gates!?"

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion sends a radio transmission to Anthem.

From RHQ - Gates, Bastion sends a radio transmission.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "Concentrate on getting out the wounded. Don't bother with the mobile, they can take care of themselves."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "aww w crap! Someone check the MSE holdout, I think Selene's down!"

From RHQ - East Walls, Amidst the chaos, the Vanguard turns and begins heading over to retrieve Fusion and Selene, picking them up carefully. Then, she sets her leg-thrusters to maximum, trying as best she can to leave the area in a timely fashion.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Phoebus transmits, "<Fire Fox> Um... the 17th is on board now. Er. Snake and Liz are draggin in wounded ... um ... ... sorry...bout the ... rest .. sir."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "I'm taking care of her...and Fusion."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "Captain! Are they off the island?"

Valiant Falcon has left.

Lucent gives a salute to Ether as she takes the wounded unit from him--and darts further northward, his hand darting to his bag for his sling. He's going to get another downed soldier.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Anthem transmits, "Hunters, you have any people on-island?"

Hailstorm Couatl has left.

Lucent has left.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "Evac team. Status?"

Shadow Man has left.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Ether Skunk transmits, "I'm currently on foot on the island, helping some of your own, yeah."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stealth Nekojin transmits, "Ether, Alloy, and Lucent are helping treat and load wounded. I'm laying down cover fire for them."

From RHQ - North Walls, Arsenal Spinosaur is smoldering, yep, when one has an energy generator go kaboom internally, it's never a pleasant thing. The only reason his other cannons didn't detonate is because they cut off from the generators. And thank his creator for putting protection between his generators and his main systems. Still, a wimpering roar of a sound emits from Arsenal. As if to say, ~Help~~~

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "someone please find the MSE team and Captian Iris... I have to pull out in three minutes.."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Anthem transmits, "Critical damage to support structures. Full evac."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "I'm -here-, I'm coming as fast as I can, and I have Fusion and Selene!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "run! we've got two minutes till the Fortress III has to pull out."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "Don't wait for anybody, soldier. Get out who you can. We've got a couple of small tugs still in the vehicle bays, anybody left behind from the main ship can use those to get out."

From RHQ - Gates, Enker receives a radio transmission.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "Forgo treatement, team, get them loaded, and get them outta there. Protoman, if you're on, relieve Stealth with the cover fire duties.. you're better at it than he is."

Vile continues to stare out through the vision-enhancing binoculars, zooming in on where the Vtol has landed and the air platforms are preparing what appears to him to be an evac. "Long have I awaited this day..." he breathes out to himself, free hand resting on an outcropping of concrete as he observes. "...and no less sweet does it taste to be brought about by the hands of another."

From Waters Beneath RHQ, And the slash hits Dive Man straight on, tearing off a nice, large chunk of armor and forcefully throwing him backwards. Fortunately for Dive, he is thrown in the general direction of the Mole, where he was planning to go, anyways, and so he engages his water jets and dives for the transport.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "CMJ Anthem taking up station in the motor pool, my team'll hold those tugs until *EVERYBODY* is out."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "And yes, Protoman, I'm asking. Please assist."

Flare Feline and the rest of the North Defense squad make it to the Vorpal, and board it. Tattered and broken, there's not much left of them.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Moonlight Kitsune transmits, "North wall suffering casualties.... havign to retreat for now."

Maverick Hunter VTOL <Vorpal>

======================= Maverick Hunter VTOL <Vorpal> ========================

The inside of the Vorpal is not very spacious, but there is just the bare minimum of equipment and seating to maximize that space. Benches with safety straps line the walls, with several tow cables placed near the rear and side portals. The cockpit can be sealed off from the rest of the cabin, should the need arise, and an auxilliary gunner's chair sits about midship. Sacrificing speed for weaponry, the Vorpal is primarily a dropship and not designed for heavy combat.

====================== Type 'vhelp' for a command list. ======================
Hailstorm Couatl
Valiant Falcon
Artillery Chasmosaurus
Stealth Nekojin

Outside> Maverick Hunter VTOL <Vorpal> extends lift-arms, usually used for cargo, and very gently begins to lift Arsenal towards itself, reeling the injured reploid in. (OOC - load 'em up, folks)

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, Crystal Man continues to stare at Yamato in awe. He, most likely more than anyone else here aside from Yamato Man himself, has some idea of what he's just seen -- perhaps not in the same way as some, perhaps not even in the way that most would consider correct, but to a degree, he knows. Thus, after he manages to contain his shock... he heaves a sigh of relief.

. o O (Congratulations, brother.) O o .

Outside> Blues arrives from the New York - Eastern Downtown.

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, Crystal Man sends a radio transmission to Yamato Man.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "This is a general order - all units, fall back. Repeat, fall back."

Outside> Repliforce Air Platform <Fortress III> arrives from the New York - Harbor.

Outside> Ring Redwing makes her way into Repliforce Air Platform <Fortress III>.

Outside> Fencer Naiad makes her way into Repliforce Air Platform <Fortress III>.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "all units, get on the ship! the airship is on the island!"

Outside> Ether Skunk winces, looking around... anybody else? The Vorpal's about to take off, but the Skunk doesn't load up just yet, instead merely shooting towards the craft... holding out as long as she can for any more wounded, keen optics scouring every bit of rubble-strewn and battle-scared landscape in sight.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] MSE XO Fusion Phoenix transmits, "*A random MSE NPC speaks* The Lieutenant is fallen, but all MSE units are to move to the Western Shore and evac."

Outside> From RHQ - Gates, Archer Colossus takes a ground-shaking step back as he's hit with the flailing green geek and the added kick. For Punk's troubles, Archer bleeds mechfluid from his left optic. "***tch." spits Archer, green fluid trickling down to his lips. "Let me return that favor..." sneers Archer, as he clenches his fists, and begins whirling in a circle, as he moves Tasmanian-devil style towards Punk, before unleashing a twisting uppercut.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "all turrets, support our men!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "Bastion, hit the timers! NOW!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Archer Colossus transmits, "Grr...one more punch...that's all i want... Direct order?? Grr..."

Outside> Moonlight Kitsune makes her way back, coughing a bit. She's seen better days, having been hit, pummeled, iced, and otherwise attacked.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "I already have...you've got 2 minutes."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "Fortress, cast off - all remaining troops, either head for the smaller vessels or get off on your own. Hope nobody left behind anything important.."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion transmits, "Get out... get out..."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Anthem transmits, "Two minutes, Hunters, move it faster!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Command Major Slash Beast transmits, "...Falling back. Private <gumby>, pick me up at these coordinates..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "Arrgh! last boarding call for Fortress III! I move in ONE MINUTE!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "Important... I... oh no... I... nothing. It was nothing..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Plasma Badger transmits, "*crackle*need evac..*hiss*Full mobility compromised. In retreat."

Outside> The Vanguard has its flight thrusters on full, and it's literally falling apart in the air. Iris is making the best effort she possibly can, though, to get Fusion and Selene's bodies back to the Fortress. As she hears Anthem give the order for the Fortress to launch, she begins to cry. And the thrusters begin to give out. The Vanguard lurches...plummetting...

Outside> From Waters Beneath RHQ, Dive Man is hit by a rather large chunk of debris, which seriously dents his periscope, but doesn't really have any other effects. And with that, Dive climbs aboard the Mole.

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, Arsenal Spinosaur 's eyes are just a bit glazed over, though as movement is seen he blinks, deglazing, shifting a little, legs moving before he winces loudly... he's a mess. Gaping hole in his right side, plenty of mechanics are visible, and most of the synth skin on that side is just gone.

Outside> Iris sends a radio transmission.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Spiral Pegasus transmits, "<Radioy> Departing."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "SAR TEAMS, GET THE VANGUARD ONBOARD THIS AIRSHIP, NOW!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "Somebody grab that badger, I am *NOT* leaving behind his slow flame-retardant buttox."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "I'll do it."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "If we'd been allowed to help 30 minutes ago, Anthem, this wouldn't be a problem! Move faster, Hunters, you heard the gal... oh.. ?$@!"

Outside> Stealth Nekojin sends a radio transmission.
Stealth Nekojin sends a radio transmission.
Outside> Iris receives a radio transmission.

Outside> Ether Skunk sighs, dropping onto the roof of the Vorpal and gripping onto a few of its panels. She slaps the top and calls out to the people inside. "I'll ride up here and offer cover fire if I need to! 'Sides, I'm getting kinda good at vehicle-surfing!"

Outside> Ether Skunk begins following you.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Broadcast Ocelot transmits, "..."

Outside> Iris receives a radio transmission from Phoebus.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Broadcast Ocelot transmits, "Well ain't that a bitch."

Outside> Iris receives a radio transmission from Zero.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Ether Skunk transmits, "Zero?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Anthem transmits, "Complaining later! Evacing now!"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Ether Skunk transmits, "What's wrong?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "This is Anthem, I'm pulling my team back."

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, Crystal Man receives a radio transmission.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Broadcast Ocelot transmits, "Looks like I'm gonna haffi get out an' push de Stalwart to safety. It's deader than Clown Man's career."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stealth Nekojin transmits, "Move, Ether! You've got a minute thirty til the end of the world."

Outside> Vile centers his vision towards the Vanguard as it plummets, his shoulders shaking just slightly with chuckles at the situation. "Like a polluted stream they trickle out..." he breathes, panning his vision back again as he tries to center in on some of the action again.

Outside> Moonlight Kitsune looks around, and rubs her eyes, as she takes a small rest, from her fight, her ears perked up, as she listens.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Artillery Chasmosaurus transmits, "Get one of the transports to snag it with a grappling hook."

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, Crystal Man sends a radio transmission.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Broadcast Ocelot transmits, "Dat...would be a good idea."

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, Crystal Man turns away, finally, as Yamato Man is apparently back to normal. After all, they have one of their own wounded to pick up... but as he sees that Tomahawk and Heat are handling the situation, the crystal conjurer turns to enter the Transport himself, as he's needed to pilot it. If he notices Lucent, he doesn't let it on...

Outside> Iris drops Fusion Phoenix.
Outside> Iris drops Selene Chantrell.

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, "C-can y-you walk?" Lucent asks, immediately, on seeing Arsenal awake. He answers his own question, "n-no, p-probably n-not." Waving the gumbies over with one talon, he directs them to grab the spinosaur in an improvised fire-man's carry. The minimedic, himself, puts a stabilizing hand on the other reploid's side, and adjures, "L-lift!" And they do. We're moving. But maybe not fast enough to make an evac...

Outside> Ten flies into the fortress III as quickly as she can. Only a small number of her gumby troops survived. They follow her. Ten does take a moment to look back at the Vanguard, and gasps in shock.

Outside> From RHQ - Gates, Fencer Naiad comes from the nearby area, rushing with all of her 60 MPH worth of speed, closing in on a radio signal.

Outside> Ten sends a radio transmission to Iris.
Outside> Iris receives a radio transmission.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "SAR, someone, get the Vanguard and the MSE out of there!"

Outside> Iris sends a radio transmission to Ten.
Outside> Ten receives a radio transmission.

Outside> From RHQ - Gates, Enker watches Bastion disappear, staring momentarily before he looks at the ruined links of the handcuff, still encircling his wrist. Stepping away from the pit, his other hand comes down to try and shatter the cuff entirely.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Anthem transmits, "Just about all RF units evacuated, either on the Fortress III or on smaller vessels. I'm on the Robert MacKensie, moving out now. You've got real short before boom-boom, so move faster!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "Keep that fortress boardable, I'll get anyone an I can take back with me."

Outside> Quell Quetzalcoatlus enters the New York - Manhattan Island.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Aerial Division Commander Ten transmits, "Iris is in trouble!"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Ether Skunk transmits, "I'm READY, Stealth. I'll cover you from the outside of the craft, don't worry about me! If I can surf the Gesselschaft, I can handle the Vorpal!"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Zero transmits, "I'm en route."

Flare Feline staggars into the Vorpal, with what's left of the North Wall defense squads. And there's not much of them. He takes a few steps forward, vision starting to become blurry as he remembers an important memento he left in his quarters "...I forgot it..." He's still for a moment or two, and then collapses on the floor.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "*static* Losing power!! -- I'm close -- Gearworks, I'll drop Fusion and Celene...*static* Have the teams get them!"

Outside> Strike Mongoose comes running from the gates, his armor smoking but still in fighting shape. He looks around, ready to see if there is anything he can do.

Outside> From RHQ - North Walls, Arsenal Spinosaur winces again, a bit more loudly before at the shifting of position. A flurry of sparks fly out of the hole as well as a bunch of mechfluids. Since he was laying on his side, it was just sort of pooling up in there.

Outside> From RHQ - Gates, Burn Dinorex is struck by the pillars of ice, and the flaming Reploid stumbles back as the ice strikes him. Glaring towards Frost Man, Burn Dinorex snorts some more flames. "I would much like to end this, and your pathetic life... But my island is lost, sinking and gone forever. You and you kindred /will/ pay for waht has happened here this day. Never forget that. You. Will. Pay." He snarls, and turns, swiftly making a run for it, his feet smacking into the concrete as he runs, flaming tail out behind him.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "NO! SAR, GET EVERYONE!"

Outside> Wily Mole enters the New York - Eastern Downtown.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "I'm NOT leaving you. Zero would chop me in half if he found out!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "Corporal, YOU WILL FOLLOW ORDERS AND CAST OFF."

Outside> Fencer Naiad is semi pushing/carrying Plasma to the air fortress. "Com'n, please move."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "I'm coming! I'm getting the Badger like you ordered."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "hurry up! I have to LEAVE!!!!"

Outside> Ten slowly flies into the fortress, looking sad and worried.

Outside> From RHQ - Gates, Crash Man allows Strike to leave without further blows. Stupid forcefields. Besides that he was rather hurting and all-too-eager to head the call for retreat about now. o O (Stupid freaking petshop reject tuberat, I'm far better than Black and Decker!)

Outside> Fencer Naiad makes her way into Repliforce Air Platform <Fortress III>.

Outside> Ten makes her way into Repliforce Air Platform <Fortress III>.

Outside> The Vanguard continues to plummet, though it's a strange descent...she's airborne one moment, then plummeting the next, as the footjets and thrusters lose power gradually. When she gets close to the ground, she jettisons Fusion and Celene...then, the ride armor crashes near the Vorpal with a heavy THUD.

Outside> Maverick Hunter Recon Vehicle <Phantom> arrives from the New York - Harbor.

Outside> Plasma Badger roars loudly and his exhaust ports open in his back, propelling him forward at extra speed on emergency vented exhaust from his twin micro-HEARTH reacotrs, flinging himself at the Fortress
Outside> Plasma Badger makes his way into Repliforce Air Platform <Fortress III>.

Outside> Spiral Pegasus is busily flying away from what's left of the scene of the battle, trying to regroup what's left of Aerial around him. Of course, this is kind of hard when your jaw's broken and the best you can do is hand signals and radio messages, but Spiral does what he can with what he has on hand.

Outside> From RHQ - Gates, And so, he arrives. Announcing his inevitable arrival with the unmistakable screech of the five-note whistle concert, sounding out one after the arrival. Looks like he decided to show up - Reasons unknown. Timing unknown. But you can /bet/ it has very little to do with the Repliforce allowing Hunter presence. As the wounded are dragged out via whatever means, a familiar pulse of red light materializes in the center of the massive battlefield. Backup Relief? Looks like he's playing the part. Almost immediately, Protoman lifts the already generated Proto Buster into the air, leveling it with the Dreadskull as he draws a bead upon it, firing one shot off. Just a few seconds for the wounded... And as much blood as he could spill.

Outside> Maverick Hunter VTOL <Vorpal> launches as soon as the last person who will fit is aboard, then tilts on it's axis and roars towards the Vanguard, skidding to a halt just above it and slowly lowering down until it envelops the massive ride armor and it's pilot, then closes up around them.

Outside> Fusion Phoenix lands under Selene, which is lucky for her considering their respective sizes.

Iris has arrived.

Outside> Strike Mongoose looks around, and curses. "Damnit!" he says, turnning around and running towards the fallen Vanguard. He looks around, and spots both Fusion and Selene on the ground, arriving there a few moments later. "I need some HELP HERE!" he shouts, picking up Selene and swinging her over one shoulder - not caring if she's mobile or not.

Outside> Ether Skunk sticks to the top of the Vorpal the whole while, gripping it tightly. Yay! A stripey hood ornament!

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Bastion voice, perfectly monotone. "30 Seconds till self-destruct."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "MacKensie holding... anybody left?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "hurry up, get them inside! we're going to have to leave!!!"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stealth Nekojin transmits, "Vorpal headed out, destination, London. See you there, Repliforce... ALL of you."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Phoebus transmits, "I said to not yell, Gear."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Archer Colossus transmits, "OOC: I'm waiting on Quint's pose..."

[Radio] You send Ten a direct message: "*voice sounding half out of it* I forgot it.... Krysta will be mad at me..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Chaplain Hymn transmits, "I'm providing cover for the wounded before the gates!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "last call. I am leaving in ten seconds!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Plasma Badger transmits, "*crackle*On the*screeeech*Fortress...*hiss*"

Outside> Flare Feline receives a radio transmission.
Ten sends you a tightbeam radio transmission: "Huh? What?"

Outside> Flare Feline sends a radio transmission to Ten.
[Radio] You send Ten a direct message: "...I promised I'd keep that photo of them... it was a promise... *his voice trails off here, if he's still conscious, he's not saying anything more...*"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "I'm sorry! I have to go! now!"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "MacKensie holding for ten more seconds... c'mon, people..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Fencer Naiad transmits, "I'm on the fortress with Plasma."

Flare Feline has collapsed on the floor, barely staying conscious, and almost seems totally out of it mentally. What's left of the North Wall squad that can stand are helping the other fallen soldiers. Everyone's pretty much in down spirits

Outside> Ether Skunk remains pasted to the top of the Vorpal, having not budged since it took off. She relaxes someone what it nears London, sitting up, then settling back with her legs crossed, looking rather content with herself as she rides along. Not that she's content. No. This is not a Happy Skunk. But at least she's out of the line of fire for now.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Arsenal Spinosaur transmits, "OOC: GEAR! WE Posed getting on! >.<"

Artillery Chasmosaurus changes into her Unarmed armor.
Iris changes into her Iris armor.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Anthem transmits, "Good luck, Hunters. We... oh hell, the timer! MOVE FASTER! <explosion>"

In the years of war, the tides of control always shifted. This island, is one of those tides. The island starts to sink, slowly. But then it never quite sinks before it starts to explode, the buildings each exploding in bright white lights one at a time. A chain reaction, a perfectly timed set of explosions, five seconds apart. And then, it's over, the buildings destroyed, a hole in the center of the island where the major part of the base was, water starts to come up from the center and out toward the shores. The hangar left intact oddly enough, for those last few who are the island, as it sinks slowly at first, then speeding up. Repliforce Island, is no more.

The Vanguard armor fades into subspace, leaving what appears to be a completely undamaged Iris.

Mentally, though, it's a different story...

She stares blankly out the ship's viewscreen, and watches Repliforce Island simply...disappear. Forever.

Outside> Iris receives a radio transmission from Ten.
Iris receives a radio transmission from Ten.

Stealth Nekojin brings the Vorpal to a halt over London, letting everyone take in the view. He radios up to Ether, and grimaces, "...For what it's worth... I'm sorry it ended like that... and I'll help you get them back." He says quietly.

Outside> Stealth Nekojin sends a radio transmission.

Stealth Nekojin sends a radio transmission.
Outside> Ether Skunk receives a radio transmission.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Anthem transmits, "This is the Robert MacKensie - didn't move fast enough. We've taken a pretty bad hit, and the rear deck's on fire. Mayday, mayday.... This is the Robert MacKensie, going down..."

Outside> Iris sends a radio transmission.
Iris sends a radio transmission.

Outside> Ether Skunk flicks an ear at a radio transmission and rolls back, dropping into the Vorpal through a top hatch.
Ether Skunk has arrived.

Artillery Chasmosaurus phases her guns out and stands up...slowly. She shakes her head a bit as she walks across the deck and places a hand on Iris' shoulder in wordless support.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Spiral Pegasus transmits, "<Radioy> ... the heck? Where's SAR?"

Flare Feline lies there now, totally unconscious. He almost looks peaceful in a way, aside from the fact his armor is totally ravaged and melted. And now his home is destroyed, a sight he couldn't see, thankfully. Though he's not going to like the news once he's repaired...

Ether Skunk drops in through the roof and plop, lands in the co-pilot's seat. She doesn't stay there for long, hopping to her feet and whirling around... looking over the gathered parties with nothing short of a horrified expression.

Outside> Iris receives a radio transmission from Ten.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Corporal Plasma Badger transmits, "*crackle* Go*schreeech*it some*hiss*et the Bosslady!""

Hailstorm Couatl sits, coiled up, in a corner. Twas a sad day for the repliforce...

Iris leans up against the wall, curling up in her seat and weeping bitterly.

Stealth Nekojin mutters, "Screw protocol. London is going to be PACKED with wounded." He flips on the radio, "I'm bringing the five repliforcers on board to Light Labs for repairs. We can spare the room. they can't right now."

Outside> Iris receives a radio transmission from Zero.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "where's the rendevous point?"

Outside> Zero enters the Light Labs - Command.

Outside> Maverick Hunter VTOL <Vorpal> sets down lightly, with more care than usual in deference to the wounded aboard, and drops it's boarding ramp.

Stealth Nekojin says, "Everybody out who's getting out... If you need a hand, just say so. Or lay there and twitch if you can't talk right now."

Outside> Zero arrives from the Light Labs - Command.

Ether Skunk sags back into the co-pilot's seat and clasps her hands to the sides of her head, flopping forward. She shows no sign of moving or bailing out.

Flare Feline is lying on the floor, unconscious. Yep. His squad was...er... dropped off at London, yeah. That'll simplify things. The gumbies aren't important. :)

Valiant Falcon has reconnected.

Stealth Nekojin sets about giving those who need them visitor passes so they can get by security. Then touches Iris' shoulder. "...Go see him. You need each other right now."

Valiant Falcon is on the ground, systems are down. Valiant Falcon is unconscious due to being heavily beaten by Glyder. There are puncture wounds all over, as well as the systems being fried.

Ether Skunk lifts her head after a moment's thought, and turns. "Who needs help walking?" she says. "I can float one big guy or three small guys with me down to the medbay."

Hailstorm Couatl is one of the few forcers who can move at the moment. He slithers over to Valiant, and lifts the Flacon. Of course the snake is gonna aid the one who helped him out against that ride armor.

Flare Feline is a big guy, and is unconscious.

Valiant Falcon has left.
Hailstorm Couatl takes Valiant Falcon.

Iris sits there in a daze for a moment. Then, she begins moving over toward Flare...still dazed and acting in a rather automatic fashion.

Hailstorm Couatl has left.

Artillery Chasmosaurus turns toward the hatch, tail swishing to keep her balance and one hand held to her forehead between her horns. But she can walk on her own, yes.

Artillery Chasmosaurus has left.

Outside> Hailstorm Couatl slithers out of the Vorpal, carrying an unconcious and fairly beaten up Falcon, and heading (with directions) to the med lab.

Outside> Hailstorm Couatl enters the Light Labs - Command.

Outside> Zero is outside, waiting on the triage team. "Get them lines up by most needed for repairs first.. then we'll deal with the less seriously injured."

Iris takes out a medical scanner and scans Flare Feline.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Flare Feline transmits, "(Not Flare, but a gumbie, woo) This is Cadet Bubble Toad. The Maverick Hunters dropped most of us off at RHQ London, but took the more critically wounded to Light Labs. I believe we lost.... over 0 of our squad... *choking sobbing sounds*"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Captain Iris transmits, "Present..accounted for...at Light Labs...functional. *sounds badly shaken*"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Stealth Nekojin transmits, "Light Labs here. We've docked five of your more critically wounded. We'll take care of them for you, since I would imagine that you're swamped already."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Lieutenant Spiral Pegasus transmits, "Shutting off radio... need to rest..."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Commander Phoebus transmits, "... Save the Inspirational Talks for when we're bleeding safe."

Zero turns Flare over to the triage team of Repliforcers, before grabbing a blanket to wrap around Iris. "Come on, you can rest in my place tonight, and we'll talk about this."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Hailstorm Couatl transmits, "I won't be moving from the Light Labs MedBay too much. Fighting a Ride Armor is not an advisable survival tactic."

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Gearworks Fox transmits, "is there anyone who knows how to repair Bioroids in london?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Shield transmits, "What is the estimated total fatalities currently?"

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Chaplain Hymn transmits, "Understoof, Phoebus... we have much to do..."

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Lt. Ring Redwing transmits, "(Sargeant Torrent Thunderbird, not Ring Redwing) "20 members of 304 Aerial Squadron are down, mostly from blasts from the Gesellschaft. Unsure as to how many are fatally wounded.""

Flare Feline is... unconscious! Yep. Mostly collapsed due to mental trauma than injury, but he's out of it. He occasionally mumbles something about forgetting something or other. Well, first things first he needs to be repaired, seems he got in a real fire fight, literally.

Iris leans up against Zero, sobbing softly and following him blindly as she listens to the casualty reports on the radio.

Flare Feline is carried away by the medics, to the medbay to get real treatment.

[Radio: (A) Repliforce] Archer Colossus transmits, "Belatedly, Archer Colossus, soundin off. Short one finger."

<Little bit later...>

Light Labs - Medical

This room is kept immaculately clean and organized, from the polished tile floor to the bright exam lights and walls painted with soothing colors. Several repair and medical beds for robot and human patients line the walls, monitors above them indicating the status of the patient's vital signs. There are no windows here, as this is in the center of the floor and heavily reinforced against possible attack. It is here that the Maverick Hunter medics patch up the wounded.

Artillery Chasmosaurus [Unarmed] [RF]

Repair Chamber

Obvious exits:
Sliding Door <S> leads to Light Labs - Corridor 3.

Dr. Pavel Cossack arrives from the Light Labs - Corridor 3.
Dr. Pavel Cossack has arrived.

Stealth Nekojin arrives from the Light Labs - Corridor 3.
Stealth Nekojin has arrived.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Gearworks Fox transmits, "I need some help in the London medi-bay! Is anyone in range that can repair Bioroids?"

Dr. Pavel Cossack, one of the world's greatest scientists, marches into Medical like a conquering god. His face is grim and hard, a mask that conceals his emotions. He is bearing a toolkit and a cigarette, which burns steadily between his lips.
Behind him are two drones, Joe-like creatures that resemble the soldiers from Episode 1. They have a cannon on either shoulder and long, prehensile `fingers', which are carrying additional equipment. They follow after Cossack, his silent entourage, as he looks across the room to see who is the worst off.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "Can you -stop- sounding panicky, Gear?"

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Lucent transmits, "Th-that depends on wh-what you c-call 'in r-range'."

Flare Feline is carted in by medical gumbies, and layed on a medbed. He is worked on by medstaff, and doesn't do much else all night. Since his player is logging off now. Yay

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Gearworks Fox transmits, "Errr, by in-range, I mean able to get here swiftly."

Kalinka arrives from the Light Labs - Corridor 3.
Kalinka has arrived.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Captain Phoebus transmits, "the hell, if you need to grab some extra help to fix someone up, just go and do it."

Kalinka comes running in like the wind, carrying a repair kit.

[Radio: (C) RF/Hunter-Com] Lucent transmits, "On m-my way."

Hailstorm Couatl is still concious. Beaten up pretty badly, but concious. He watches the Medics get to work, trying to ignore the painful fact that he went one-on-one with a ride armor.

Dawn was here ahead of time, as promised. She's fine, mainly since she didn't go with the Vorpal earlier. Who she works on is...definately up in the air. Probably not picky.

Stealth Nekojin pads over to Hailstorm, grabbing a small cube and holding it out to him, "If you don't mind losing all feeling from the neck down, this will cut the pain nicely."
