Tyler stood over Jess’s body, “Hey,” as he held her hand and rubbed her hair, “I’m leaving for Koraulak. It shouldn’t be too dangerous of an op; I expect to be gone a few days but nothing the squad can’t handle. I’ll see you when I get back Jess,” as he stood there, unsure of what to do. Taking a big breath, he turned around and headed back to the hanger, ready to get the mission under way.
Karl "As many as you can fit stars," as the ships jump through and soon come out on the other side. "Okay, we are here. People, break off into your groups, assault and inflitration teams. We depart for the planet in ten."
Ok first off tayler, 45mm bullet??? what are you expecting to be upagainced, battlerobots, bowser class front liner tanks? How does it not rip your arm off to even fire it? Secondly, relax, weapons are for weaklings anyway. If any trouble brews, you can just hide behind me.
.*sigh* maby I should take a gun with me after all, after all I will only need one bullet. Ready to get this over with? Remember, we can get killed in a single wrong move if they find out we are chat enemies.
Megan is 5'5, as her armor does not increase her height. Looking at the group, "We should take up positions around the tavern. Some of us should hide in the trees in the back, while others should use the jeep we brought to hide in the parking lot. The jeep is also hooked up to Tyler so we can hear the conversation."
Aylin "These are mercs we're talking about. They'd do anything to gain a profit, and if they find out that DM-Tyler is here, things are gonna get hot. I wouldn't mind a little excitement."
Renée walked into the bar, followed closely by Tyler, Talot, and Nikolai. She immediately branched off from them and took a seat at the counter. On either side of her were Dervish mercenaries that were snickering and enjoying their beverages.
Renée "Hey there, what do you have?"
Waiter "We have Gray Matter, Jeuce, and Mind Bomb."
Renée "I'll take a mind bomb."
The waiter slides her a glass of bluish-gray liquid with foam.
Tyler nods as they enter the bar. He sits at a table near the pool table, and is asked for a drink. "Whisky on the rocks," as he looks around, taking in the people. To himself, "Few Black Fang, and even a few Six Sign members."
Megan "Neither would I, it can get boring sitting in here doing nothing. And if they do see Tyler, I'm not sure if they would jump on it, since he could probably kill them pretty quickly."
Aylin "If 80% of the planet is mercenaries, then even Tyler is at risk here; let's not brush that off."
Inside the bar, Renée took a sip of the mind bomb and almost threw up inside her mouth. This stuff was disgusting. She subtly slid her drink toward the Kig-yar, who was enjoying a glass of water.
The Dervish to her right suddenly seized her arm and grinned. Normally, she would've broken his nose and knocked out some teeth in a second, but she didn't want to give herself away.
Dervish Thug 1 "Come wi' me to the back rooms. Me an some pals o' mine want to party with you."
Renée chuckled and followed him. She noticed an alien questioning the Kig-yar. Thinking quickly, she bumped into it and quickly moved to the side, while the Dervish behind her made eye contact with the Quermian.
Megan "You think he's got the highest price on his head here?"
Tyler sips his drink as he sees Renee get taken to a back room. He gets up to do something but is asked to play a around of eight ball instead. Knowing he needs to blend in, he accpets and takes the pool stick, as he is going to break. However, he still keeps his guard up, just in case.
Pool Player 1 "Jeez, this guy is tense," as he and his buddies laugh.
Pool Player 2 "He jsut needs some more liquid courage, then he'll lossen up," as they call for another round of drinks.
Tyler keeps playing as he drinks his second drink. To himself, "All those years of drinking on Alpha Harmony are paying off. I don't feel a thing," as he sees the other guys are wasted. "So, what does you guys do for work around?"
Pool Player 1 "Murder boy," as he gives his a cold look. "Chat comes here, and we take the jobs they give us."
Aylin "I dunno. People pick all kinds of enemies. I'm just saying that we should be ready in case they decide to team up. You've recruited Archangel, right? Remember when the Eclipse, Blue Suns, and Blood Pack teamed up to take him down? A similar situation here, on a larger scale, might actually spell trouble."
Dervish Thug 4 "Why don't you start by taking off your top, eh?"
Renée "And what if I don't?"
The Dervish with the gun fired, leaving a bullet hole in the wall mere centimeters from her neck.
Devish Thug 3 "I ain't gonna miss on purpose again."
Renée bolted into action. She seized the Dervish next to her and threw him across the room, into the one with the gun. Then she kicked another thug in the loins. She noticed a collapsible blade on his belt, so she grabbed it and extended the weapon.
A quick backward slice finished off one of the red aliens.
The thug with the gun stumbled to his feet and fired at her, but missed and hit one of his allies instead. She was instantly upon him and grabbed his weapon. She violently tore the weapon away from his grip, dislocating pretty much all of his fingers.
She pistol whipped the gunner Dervish, then spun the weapon on her finger and fired at the Dervish on the ground.
Suddenly, the two remaining aliens pounced on her.
Yugaha Mercenary: Ramasa. It means "acquaintance" in Jo'Bor. But no. The Yugaha you see in this bar, including I, are appart of the Golden Horde. We are looking for someone in this bar that appears to match your physical description.
The mercenary taps the table
Yugaha Mercenary: In order to take you off of our potential suspect list, we will need to have your name. What is it?
One of the mercs notices Talot "damn... i thought you were dead Talot! i guess you are the tough Son of a Bitch i always remember you being" he extends his arm out to give Talot a handshake, Talot excepts it "you cant kill me that easily just remember that" Talot sits back down
(two teams on one the planet of Koraulak trying to figure out what the Chat and local mercs are trading. One time is in a local bar collecting intel while another is outside as an assault team if the mission in the bar goes south)
Kigyar Mercenary: You see, freelancers are the thing of the past. You can't get the dirty work done without hiring skilled assassins, hitmen, or just an assault squad of hired guns. Freelancers are self-employed. Self-employed people aren't trusted well compared to mercenaries part of the Six Signs or the Black Fang. Mercenaries may be "unethical" to some, but at least we are somewhat regulated by a superior force.
Tyler, laughing "Please, I could take out an entire squad of Black Fang with one hand tired behind my back. Freelancers are born to kill, Mercs are hired to kill. I've been doing this job my entire life, and guess what, I'm damn good at it."
The name is Sia, I been to taverns all over the galaxy, and yes, in many cultures they do let children into a tavern. In most the children are only allowed milk juice soda tea or water, in others, they don't care if 8 year olds are drinking so long as their parents are ok with it. Heck, their are even taverns that go by a code of truce, anyone, no matter who's enemy they are, are at peace for the moment. Some noobs try to counter this by placing snipers in trees and waiting for their enemies to step out of the truce zone, so I would suggest enjoying it while it last and wearing a helmet should you go their, ha HA!
The Ranger gave Tyler a few pics of the targets he was supposed to it. Tyler, "So, do you usually hire guns from this planet?"
Ranger "Sometimes. Other times, we go to other planets. We give them intel, and they carry the jobs out. Sometimes we'll even give them some of our hardware and they might tip us off on how to infiltrate Republic areas."
Laughing, "I see, well I'm barely into my twenties. Well, the mission was to figure out what was being traded, and it seems we might have a rat who's given the Chat over their insider information. What's the likely hood we could grab the bastard and escape with our lives?"
Tyler, cracking his knockles, "Don't worry about it, we need to make this legit Talot, no hard feelings," as he takes drink and smashes on Talot's head, before punching the guy next to him, hoping the rest of the bar falls into chaos.
Renée hustled toward the Chat ranger, who was talking on some kind of communicator. When he saw her approaching, he instinctively reached for his weapon, but she beat him to the punch, pulling his pistol from the holster before he could.
She quickly punched him in the mouth and caught him as he went limp.
Suddenly, she heard someone growl behind her and felt something hard hit the back of her head.
Spitting up blood as he struggled to stand up, "No it wasn't, you probably just pictured Megan," as he rushed towards other of the Chat's guards, punching her in the gut before grabbing her arm and breaking it.

Talot "no maybe because you called me a freak asshole"
Megan "Negative, it's too chaotic to move in without resorting to deadly force. Besides, we are in military gear, which would compromise us and give mercs more of a reason to target us. We only move in if the situation turns deadly for you guys."
The cop notices the two seem to be doing well for themsevles as Megan sneaks up and grabs the officer, using him as a shield to prevent the others from firing at them, "Go, go, go, the assault team has this." Turning to Aylin, "Don't hurt them, just shoot around them and scare the crap out of them."
Talot "its mainly bull shit but it says you bomb citys full of civilians as well as beheading your captured civilians and chat soldiers, as well as killing babys in frount of there mothers that sort of thing"
Megan, relaxing, as it doesn't bother her that much, "Oh, that's all bullshit. I thought was something that had some truth to it." Looking down at her feet, "Truth be told, we've all done bad things, it's just a matter of who's things are more good then bad."

Talot with wide eyes "so you really do kill babys in frount of there mothers?"
Suddenly a police officer looks in Stars direction: "10/4 I found him, you, halt!" the police officer charges in Stars direction, who merely stands his ground starring at him, as the police officer comes close suddenly, he goes completely around him "Out of my way stupid pedestrian!" The police man tackles a human 15 feet behind him. "You are under arrest for crimes againced the mailing delivery system...." Stars just keeps moving until he reaches the phantom, then takes off cloaking as he does so.
(back, and yea, this was supposed to be a quick mission to bring the characters together. Think this just about wraps it up. People are free to start a new one from this if they want. I'll be at the drawing board too. And welcome back Trol Lolamee)
