Jan 03 14:48:55 <E4D> Everyone, perception
Jan 03 14:49:00 <PaulS_laptop> 4df
Jan 03 14:49:00 <Glacon> PaulS_laptop: 0 (4df=0, 0, -, +)
Jan 03 14:49:20 <Ragazzo> 4df+1 Ahh?
Jan 03 14:49:21 <Glacon> Ragazzo: Ahh?: -1 (4df+1=0, -, -, 0)
Jan 03 14:49:33 <Lilah> 4df+3
Jan 03 14:49:34 <Glacon> Lilah: 2 (4df+3=-, 0, +, -)
Jan 03 14:50:55 <Maddy> 4df+4 eyes
Jan 03 14:50:56 <Glacon> Maddy: eyes: 4 (4df+4=-, 0, +, 0)
Jan 03 14:52:06 <E4D> There is, again, a dum hmmmmmmm coming from outside. Alice hears it. Oh hell, it's right above her.
Jan 03 14:52:27 <Maddy> "Fffff!" she gets under an overhang, just barely peeking out.
Jan 03 14:53:21 <Lilah> Ehliet is way too absorbed in kehlvonian fiction works.
Jan 03 14:53:39 <Maddy> "Uhhhhh." She runs inside to find Jaon.
Jan 03 14:53:51 <Maddy> "Jaaaaaon!"
Jan 03 14:55:10 <Maddy> She sticks her head in the door of the main sleeping room. "Anyone seen Jason?"
Jan 03 14:55:43 <Ragazzo> "Try the radio?"
Jan 03 14:55:49 <Ragazzo> "What's the problem?"
Jan 03 14:55:55 <Maddy> "No radio. Planes!"
Jan 03 14:56:06 <Maddy> "Well, plane, singular"
Jan 03 14:56:19 <Ragazzo> "So…uh, hm."
Jan 03 14:56:24 <Ragazzo> "I haven't seen him."
Jan 03 14:56:37 <Lilah> Ehliet glances up, "would you like me to flash about and look for him?"
Jan 03 14:57:06 <Maddy> "Yes! P-please, you are a-a life saver. Maybe. We'll see."
Jan 03 14:57:08 <E4D> Jason comes running out of a back office. "What's wrong?"
Jan 03 14:57:33 <PaulS_laptop> "unngh, what?" John staggers towards the others
Jan 03 14:57:49 <Lilah> "Found him." point.
Jan 03 14:58:28 <Maddy> "Thanks. Jason! MQ-9, 4 racks of m-missles!
Jan 03 14:58:49 <Maddy> She flails a little
Jan 03 14:58:54 <Lilah> "You didn't even see me go. Look how skilled I am." He shifts and glances back at his book.
Jan 03 14:58:57 <E4D> There's another roar, much louder this time. The windows rattle.
Jan 03 14:59:26 <Ragazzo> "…."
Jan 03 14:59:26 <Lilah> "[Oh Maker…]" He is interrupted.
Jan 03 14:59:28 <Maddy> "Yes, Ehliet, y-you are a credit to the team." she smiles briefly but the cover he ears at the sound
Jan 03 14:59:35 <PaulS_laptop> "fucking hell"
Jan 03 15:00:33 <E4D> Jason runs just out the door, and looks up as he pulls his helmet on. <Holy *shit*.>
Jan 03 15:01:16 <PaulS_laptop> "Ah'll be back" John limps back to his room, and loads himself up, before returning to the others
Jan 03 15:03:20 <E4D> Moments later, any radios which happen to be active come alive. «All personnel in vicinity of Pingtan city, this is COMPACFLT, UCAV MQ-9 designate Reaper One-One. Be advised, we are going weapons free.»
Jan 03 15:03:44 <Lilah> Ehliet finda this situation much too tempting to run from… but he blinks at his radio.
Jan 03 15:04:24 <E4D> «Reaper One-One, Fox One.»
Jan 03 15:04:42 <PaulS_laptop> "Shut th' fuck up" John, cussing at his radio. Not ON his radio, just at it
Jan 03 15:04:53 <Maddy> "Ahhhhh!"
Jan 03 15:05:00 <E4D> Another roar. Moments later, a cacophonous explosion breaks the silence.
Jan 03 15:05:12 <E4D> It's close, but it's not outside.
Jan 03 15:05:22 <Maddy> Alice runs outsite to Jason, hitting the floor a moment later.
Jan 03 15:05:30 <Laito> Artemis' eyes widen, and he scrambles to get the things in his room together.
Jan 03 15:06:00 <PaulS_laptop> John takes a look for the vehicles. Is that UAV trying to fuck up their ride?
Jan 03 15:06:05 <Lilah> Adhelami watches artemis with wide eyes, "Stay in here?"
Jan 03 15:06:12 <E4D> She makes it outside just in time to see the UCAV unleash another payload. It streaks across the sky, its path obstructed by the buildings.
Jan 03 15:06:22 <Ragazzo> Lance is getting his shit together, while also staying close to the floor as possible.
Jan 03 15:06:32 <Maddy> "Jason, w-what is going on?"
Jan 03 15:06:39 <E4D> There's another explosion, and moments later, the drone peels back, returning sea-ward.
Jan 03 15:07:07 <Laito> "I do not know. Listen to Jason, he will know what to do."
Jan 03 15:07:47 <Lilah> The girl nods, turning up her radio and readying any things just in case.
Jan 03 15:07:49 <E4D> Jason raises a finger as the radios come back on.
Jan 03 15:08:29 <E4D> «All ground units, all ground units, Reaper One-One disengaging hot zone. India Bravo Delta Alpha, two I say again, *two* dusted, how copy COMPACFLT?»
Jan 03 15:09:28 <E4D> «Solid, Reaper flight. Standby for repent, we are painting additional contacts.»
Jan 03 15:09:53 <Lilah> Frown at gibberish. She looks to Artemis. He knows everything.
Jan 03 15:09:56 <Maddy> "Jesuuus."
Jan 03 15:10:21 <Laito> Artemis only shakes his head. He can barely comprehend the context himself.
Jan 03 15:11:06 <PaulS_laptop> "Do they really need to do it this early in the morning?"
Jan 03 15:11:11 <E4D> Jason looks back. <Guys, I'd advise we figure out some way to uh… recolor the captured vehicle.>
Jan 03 15:11:25 <Maddy> "O_O"
Jan 03 15:11:48 <PaulS_laptop> "There's prolly paint somewhere"
Jan 03 15:11:52 <Maddy> Alice books it fast as she god damn can to maintence. There's got to be paint there.
Jan 03 15:12:17 <Ragazzo> Lance doesn't know what the fuck
Jan 03 15:13:12 <Maddy> Alice is sprinting all over the god damn place with paint, running to the common area. "Time to redecorate!"
Jan 03 15:13:19 <E4D> The new voice speaks again. «Unsubbed Lima Alpha Victor Three, be advised, you are in an area designated as a hot zone by the Joint COMPACFLEET/Golf Oscar Charlie Task Force.»
Jan 03 15:13:38 <E4D> «Standby for retrans.»
Jan 03 15:13:50 <Maddy> Alcie skids by Jason with paint. "GOC?"
Jan 03 15:13:58 <Laito> Artemis frowns.
Jan 03 15:14:42 <Maddy> Alice is doing a hasty repaint of the APC
Jan 03 15:15:02 <Maddy> It's slow going what with the snow and her being little.
Jan 03 15:15:07 <E4D> There's a crackle of static over the radios as switching and signal handling protocols take over.
Jan 03 15:15:51 <Ragazzo> "Oh…oh hell." Lance gets up and heads outside. "Alice, want some help?"
Jan 03 15:15:57 <Maddy> "Yes!"
Jan 03 15:16:01 <Ragazzo> He paints!
Jan 03 15:16:04 <Maddy> paint paint paint
Jan 03 15:17:29 * Dexanote (~ten.elbacogc.emoh.CBFED478-CRInys|alliztahc#ten.elbacogc.emoh.CBFED478-CRInys|alliztahc) has joined #afteraction
Jan 03 15:18:16 * ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dexanote
Jan 03 15:18:24 <PaulS_laptop> John, meanwhile, heads to the roof
Jan 03 15:18:29 <E4D> A warm, commanding voice booms over the systems. «Ground units in vicinity of Pingtan city, this is Vice Admiral Swift of the United States Navy 7th Fleet, Pacific Command. Our unmanned aerial vehicles observed the destruction of your ship, and an MQ-9/G Reaper squadron has been diverted to your position to provide assistance.»
Jan 03 15:18:35 <PaulS_laptop> to see if he cansee anything
Jan 03 15:19:02 <Ragazzo> "…oh my."
Jan 03 15:19:29 <Lilah> "Oh… what does that mean, Adrien?"
Jan 03 15:20:27 <Maddy> "Oh t-thank god for that."
Jan 03 15:20:41 * Dexanote is now known as ProfChainsawFace
Jan 03 15:20:50 <Maddy> "…Jason should I h-hide the obvioulsy paranomal?"
Jan 03 15:20:51 * ProfChainsawFace is now known as Dexanote
Jan 03 15:21:04 <PaulS_laptop> John shrugs from the rooftop
Jan 03 15:21:13 <E4D> «Our operator reports the destruction of two Chinese fighters in your vicinity, as well as the destruction of a grond light armored reconnaissance element diverted from Hai Shi. In the event you are unable to respond to this communique…»
Jan 03 15:21:41 <PaulS_laptop> 4df+2 survival, does he see/hear anything, or any sign of the Chinese?
Jan 03 15:21:41 <Glacon> PaulS_laptop: survival, does he see/hear anything, or any sign of the Chinese?: 1 (4df+2=-, +, -, 0)
Jan 03 15:21:49 <Ragazzo> "…oh." Puts on hsi eyepatch.
Jan 03 15:22:05 <Laito> Artemis blinks. "Ah… I sink… Zhe United States Naval force is going to help us?"
Jan 03 15:22:25 <Ragazzo> Starts to pack away his armor.
Jan 03 15:22:42 <E4D> «… be advised that sombat service support elements have been deployed to operational capacity approximately 1 kilometer south-southwest of the southern edge of Japan. Broadcasting coordinates to operation Fox Bravo Charlie Bravo Bravo units.»
Jan 03 15:22:54 <Ragazzo> Look like a normal scmuck, look like a normal schmuck
Jan 03 15:22:58 <E4D> «Vice Admiral Swift, 7th Fleet, Commanding, out.»
Jan 03 15:24:18 <E4D> «Well, fuck me.»
Jan 03 15:24:56 <Ragazzo> "What are we doing, jason?"
Jan 03 15:25:36 <E4D> Jason ignores him, heading out to the LAV.
Jan 03 15:25:57 <Maddy> "Hello, e-earth to Jason?"
Jan 03 15:28:01 <E4D> He runs up the ramp and plops down into the BFT operator's seat.
Jan 03 15:28:08 <E4D> <Hold on! Just one second.>
Jan 03 15:28:17 <Maddy> Alice :|s at Jason
Jan 03 15:28:21 <Lilah> "Who is that?" She blinks
Jan 03 15:31:31 <E4D> The BFT screen comes up, and sure enough, there it is.
Jan 03 15:31:51 <E4D> Map symbol for a resupply and airlift section just off the coast of Japan.
Jan 03 15:32:12 <Maddy> "…guess w-we're going to Japan?"
Jan 03 15:42:42 <E4D> <That's *one* option.>
Jan 03 15:43:08 <Maddy> "Others? S-so I can explain t-to thems p-probably fretting inside?"
Jan 03 15:43:36 <E4D> <That'd be a good idea.>
Jan 03 15:43:41 <E4D> <Thanks.>
Jan 03 15:44:09 <Maddy> Alice nods and heads to the common area. "H-hey, everyone here? A-awake?"
Jan 03 15:44:37 * Dawny is now known as DawnySmokes
Jan 03 15:45:45 <Dexanote> Myrtle jolts awake, and looks around.
Jan 03 15:45:51 <Dexanote> "… Hey Alice."
Jan 03 15:47:33 <Maddy> "Sorry to like, j-jar y'all awake, but it's f-fair to explain w-what's going on. J-just now the US Navy just took out a few PLA dudes, and c-contacted us, s-saying they're here to h-help. Jason's f-found they have an a-airlift and r-resuply s-station off the c-coast of Japan."
Jan 03 15:47:49 <Maddy> "N-no plans y-yet. b-but that's where w-we stand."
