Worth the wait!

I was not logged in when I posted, my bad!

I do find it interesting the POV that is being maintained.

Also, I wonder if the palace sec changes are due to Rose?
HiFranc 21st Apr 2015, 10:20 PM edit delete reply

Well, Rose has been planning for this type of op since Decimus took charge.
Tokyo Rose 22nd Apr 2015, 12:01 AM edit delete reply

Try "planning for this type of op since Aurelian tried to murder Aeneas".
Sheela 22nd Apr 2015, 8:40 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, but so has Kali .. for years .. decades even.
Dragonrider 21st Apr 2015, 9:38 PM edit delete reply

And...the deeper we dig the more it smells, the more it smells the less chance that plans will work.
The less chance of success the higher the body count.
Not Good

If Marcus knows that Ceci is in the palace, the sensible thing to do would be to contact Ceci to see if she had any intel.
Tokyo Rose 22nd Apr 2015, 12:00 AM edit delete reply

Except that Marcus is not supposed to make contact with Dolly and Ceci if it can be avoided. (Dolly and Ceci weren't even supposed to be here, going by Cent's original plan.)
Marcus Ramesy 22nd Apr 2015, 6:17 AM edit delete reply

They are assets in place yes, but the goal is to keep them out of the picture as much as possible to avoid Dolly getting hurt, killed, captured or worse... after all.. she is expensive topsecret tech that can not fall in to the hands of any one else..
Sheela 22nd Apr 2015, 8:41 AM edit delete reply

You say that as if you have a choice in the matter of Dolly's involvement.

Dolly has other plans, she does.
She WILL be involved!
Aetrun 22nd Apr 2015, 4:19 PM edit delete reply
Sometimes it feels like Dolly doesn't just plan to be involved, but plans to be THE rescue effort. Everything else is just tools and fireworks to distract Decimus while she separates his life from his body. Unless of course that has to be avoided to save Lynn. Then the separation will be stealthy as fuck at a later date.
Marcus Ramesy 22nd Apr 2015, 4:43 PM edit delete reply

I have my orders, and will carry them out the best I can, and improvise along the way as I need to.. as the old saying goes, needs must when the devil drives.
anonymous coward 22nd Apr 2015, 9:21 PM edit delete reply
Say Major, what kind of ops have you done that are close to this? Can you tell stories without breaking opsec and vows of secrecy? And how do you rate the odds of the most likely outcomes of the mission so far?
Sheela 23rd Apr 2015, 4:06 AM edit delete reply

Any major worth his salt doesn't play odds on a mission, he goes straight for the overkill.
Marcus Ramesy 23rd Apr 2015, 11:31 AM edit delete reply

sadly, due to the nature of my past missions I am unable disclose the contents, or the nature of previous encounters... perhaps as events unfold Centcom will unlock some of the contents of those files.

as to my assessment of the out come of the mission, its any ones game, the objective is to start the action moving before Dolly and Ceci have a chance to start getting involved and then get every one out before the prince knows that we were there.. I am very much aware of Dolly tenacity and that it will be difficult if not impossible to keep her out of the action, but also have plans in place if need be to address that if it becomes an issue.

with the attempt on the princes life, it means that the place will be on high alert, and more of the rebels are going to end up dead.. we will do our best to keep the body count low, but no promises when the lasers start flying.
Lukkai 23rd Apr 2015, 6:11 PM edit delete reply
Actually any major that goes straigt for the overkill is both incompetent and either most likely dead or in prison by/after his second mission the latest.
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2015, 2:08 PM edit delete reply

As far as Dolly is concerned She IS the rescue force. she has no idea Marcus and them are even there ... :D

If someone has been playing around with the security for Decades, that would mean BEFORE Decimus took power. (looks at Rose) What have you been up to, young lady?
Tokyo Rose 21st Apr 2015, 11:59 PM edit delete reply

*innocent whistle*
Stormwind13 22nd Apr 2015, 2:48 AM edit delete reply

You are NOT innocent, Rose. We don't buy that at ALL. :-D

And Aeneas doesn't have any need to bypass security, Rash. He still, has access to security protocols and cameras around the palace. Can't see what he would gain by hacking into the palace himself.
Rashala 22nd Apr 2015, 12:00 AM edit delete reply

You reaize Aireanas *spelling sorry* could be responsible for that....

no reason to Auto blame rose
Sheela 22nd Apr 2015, 8:42 AM edit delete reply

If anything, Kali seems more likely to have been tinkering with the defense systems, now that she no longer has an AIS to back her up.

Oh, and Rose could never be innocent!
Me on the other hand, I'm totally innocent. :)
DLKmusic 22nd Apr 2015, 11:04 AM edit delete reply

I agree that Kali might be tinkering with the system, but that would be to make in more secure, not to compromise it.

She might have been secretly looking for a way to neutralize Decimus's contingencies, but evidence of that would still be less than 10 years old.
Haegan2005 22nd Apr 2015, 5:49 PM edit delete reply

All puppies are innocent. Just ask them!
Sheela 23rd Apr 2015, 4:10 AM edit delete reply

If you read Dr Silvers comments more closely, you will notice she does not mention wether the system has been tinkered with in order to improve it, or to dismantle it. At this point, it could be either way.

And puppies are definately innocent - Just look at me! :)
Lukkai 23rd Apr 2015, 6:14 PM edit delete reply
Don't forget there's not just dismantle or improve as options here. But also change to do your bidding (at least to some degree) without affecting its overall efficiency.
Haegan2005 23rd Apr 2015, 9:28 PM edit delete reply

lol :)
Fjolsvith 21st Apr 2015, 11:18 PM edit delete reply

Looks like we gonna have a real action movie coming our way pronto!
Rashala 21st Apr 2015, 11:59 PM edit delete reply

I still say DR silver sistuffign the chest of her armor......
CptKerion 22nd Apr 2015, 12:02 PM edit delete reply
Remember, there are some vital organs under there. It's just extra thick plating.
Lukkai 22nd Apr 2015, 5:41 PM edit delete reply
You can actually see the extra plating on top, so...
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2015, 2:07 PM edit delete reply

the armor over her chest IS bigger than her . its designed to stop shells and other incoming projectiles .. so yeah bulk but Silver wants to look good as well so shes customized it to the gills.. Tony Stark would LOVE her :D or hate her.
DLKmusic 23rd Apr 2015, 2:21 PM edit delete reply

Or both....
mjkj 22nd Apr 2015, 12:03 AM edit delete reply

Hmmm, how to use the high alert...

...and maybe Rose has installed more contingencies into the security procedures - she should be aware of the second rescue party by now...

Sheela 22nd Apr 2015, 8:45 AM edit delete reply

High Alerts should be easy to initiate.
Just a bit of boom-boom and burn-burn, and you should have a nice alert going on!
anonymous coward 22nd Apr 2015, 12:29 PM edit delete reply
You need follow-up action to draw in the security forces, or else they just send out the firefighters and paramedics and the security goes into high-alert making area sweeps and locking down all the non-essentials. This is why Marcus is trying to arrange a *dancing* party here.
Marcus Ramesy 22nd Apr 2015, 4:47 PM edit delete reply

Exactly, I need as much of their resources tied up in other activities to leave room for my team to work, the fact that an assassination attempt has occured makes things dramatically more difficult, not impossible but no longer a simple grab and go mission.. we think on our feet, its always been said that no plain survives first contact.. we modify and adapt as we need to.
cattservant 22nd Apr 2015, 3:50 AM edit delete reply

Can of worms!
Stormwind13 22nd Apr 2015, 4:33 AM edit delete reply

Sometimes catt, you have to just OPEN that can of worms.

Sheela 22nd Apr 2015, 8:46 AM edit delete reply

*looks innocent*

It wasn't me who placed that can of worms there!
DLKmusic 22nd Apr 2015, 11:00 AM edit delete reply

we know, Sheela. But that chewed up slipper looks mighty suspicious...
CptKerion 22nd Apr 2015, 11:55 AM edit delete reply
And Ms. Sheela, what were you doing between the hours of eight an and one pm on April twenty-second 2015?
Nystran 22nd Apr 2015, 12:51 PM edit delete reply
I'm sorry, that cannot be revealed, not even to a "Mature" rated comic.
Aetrun 22nd Apr 2015, 4:22 PM edit delete reply
I would think Cat wants the Can of Worms opened. After all, worms attract fish.
Lukkai 22nd Apr 2015, 5:39 PM edit delete reply
I'm still hoping they manage to reach their last stretch goal, so we'll actually get that printed as a booklet.
Sheela 23rd Apr 2015, 4:11 AM edit delete reply

Did someone mention fish ? :D
mjkj 23rd Apr 2015, 4:23 AM edit delete reply

Seconded, Lukkai
DizzasterJuice 22nd Apr 2015, 5:21 PM edit delete reply

Oblivion drones! Damn I loved that movie.
Maybe if we keep using different armor textures like this no one will notice except me and you. :)
What are the other drones in the background? I don't recognize those.
So much techy cool goodness in Datachasers!
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2015, 2:04 PM edit delete reply

they were called "assault drones" Assault drone

hehe I made some custom textures for the assault drones I think the others are stock " the Sentry drone " and the "Drone eye"

I always find it amusing when we use the same models :D
Dongaria 23rd Apr 2015, 10:33 AM edit delete reply

Hey don't worry about that AI, but seriously you should definitely worry about that AI. ;)
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2015, 2:05 PM edit delete reply

no kidding :D

I wonder if kyle will survive. An upload could be interesting. I suppose it depends on what tech his doctor/s have access to.
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2015, 2:05 PM edit delete reply

We shall see..
Lukkai 23rd Apr 2015, 6:17 PM edit delete reply
By now, "survive" ain't really the right word anymore either way.
Melody_Whyte 23rd Apr 2015, 3:19 PM edit delete reply

Is that Veronica's actual body after her enhancements, or is that just a really really robotic-looking suit?
Tokyo Rose 23rd Apr 2015, 5:40 PM edit delete reply

Suit. :)
antrik 13th Oct 2016, 1:03 AM edit delete reply
Real good job Kyle: along with getting yourself shot, you managed to fuck up Rosie's *and* Commie's plans... The extra body count goes on your account.
