SAT, or Special Assault Team for short. A national-level counter-terrorism asset cooperating with territorial-level Anti-Firearms Squads and Counter-NBC Terrorism Squads. Over three months ago, monstrous creatures started appearing without explanation and the SAT became the standard response to them. With the number of incidents increasing, public support for an official agency solely dedicated to the threat grew larger. Indeed, evacuation of civilians and containment of the creatures for an airstrike finishing blow was the standard procedure for the SAT, which had a cost in life and reparations. However, some SAT across the country reported even stranger phenomenons, among the usual militias and vigilantes trying to help, some manifested abilities similar to the creatures, always little girls. I am not the original MSRU QM
Sugenotoro, 18:20You are Youji Itami, a SAT's captain affected to the Western Tokyo Metropolitan Area. Originating from the military, you graduated from the National Defense Academy for its course in engineering coming with a salary. Despite graduating last, your superiors praised your way to "think outside of the box”. Firefighters called a SAT when they realized the origin of the fire was caused by a large dog-like creature in Sugenotoro, the fire was originally reported 20 minutes ago."Do you think she will come?, asked your tech support officer Kohta Hirano""Who are you talking about?""The Mahou Shoujo. I saw her last time against this giant bird, I swear ! I’m not crazy, captain !” The heavily armored man is shaking and tightens his grip on the Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder (LLDR). “I… I don’t want to blow an hospital by mistake…"Your weapon specialist Kiroko Miyamoto and two other operators wait your response. What do you think of this "Mahou Shoujo"?>Cheer up guys, we can do it alone>I hope too but I have questions for her >As far as we know she can be a creature too>Write-in your opinion on this Mahou Shoujo
>>3501323>As far as we know she can be a creature too/Paranoid Reaction/ is a go!

>>3501323>I hope too but I have questions for her
>>3501421>>3501427>>3501436I hope too but I have questions for her" you add, reminding everyone to stay open about whatever tonight events will bring and above all to seek answers, you are all still cops in the end.The poorly protected unmarked vehicle stops on a parking near a residential area ravaged by flames. Most residents seem to be gathered outside a perimeter formed by the police and a dozen of firefighters trucks on the parking. The crowd instantly insult the SAT for coming so late and threaten them to not use a missile on their houses. The glorious days of hostage rescue missions are over. SAT now operates in unit of 6 men dispatched all over the country, dangerously under-equipped. In fact, your men were lucky enough to have their submachine guns since they were now just glorified button pushers. "Oi, over here.” Hails the chief of the firefighters. "We contained the fire to this area, from the parking here to the road over there, but you have to stop the... the Wound, it's how they call them on TV right?" "When are you going to put that fire out?" Shouted a middle aged man who crossed the perimeter "Save my microship workshop, I beg you." He then executes a traditional seiza, offering his bald head for everyone to see. "Sir, I already told you to stay outside the perimeter. The temperature is too high to use plain water like a metal fire. Chemical powder just seems to «anger» it and CO2 extinguishers do nothing..." The conversation continues between the chief and the old man. One of the house on fire crumbles, you can feel the heat radiating from there even separated by a parking lot. But the roof did not just collapse, a creature emerges from the flames. It's the Wound. Its shape and movement definitely remind you of a dog but the comparison falls short if you take into account the halo of flames surrounding it. Your men point their puny MP5 at the danger, rising their shield to offer a minimum of protection or taking cover behind a firefighter truck. It seems to just wander around aimlessly. You are informed that Camp Nerima just send their attack helicopter ETA 10 minutes, also your «negotiator» has just arrived.

>>3501476>Find a spot for the LLDR and contact Camp Nerima
>>3501483>>3501490You look around to check any high ground, because having the high ground means winning. However, this residential area offers no skyscraper or tall building as observation ground. You need a clever idea like the ones you had in the academy during the war games. Your eyes drift on the control panel of the truck and it hits you like a bullet. The ladder of course."Hirano, ever wanted to be a firefighter ?"The makeshift observation tower raises in the night sky, your tech support officer already in the nacelle. Hirano informs you that the LLDR is operational but the smoke and the heat are disturbing the signal, you can only aim on clear ground like the parking lot. This is confirmed by the Camp Nerima pilot."Tokyo SAT this is Archer One. ETA 5 minutes. Status on LLDR?""Can you aim in a fire?""Wha... I've never done that in training !"Of course, the army practices on perfectly immobile targets and only fire on it once. All the burden rest on SAT shoulders to guide the missile."No target building? Can't I just bomb all the area?"In the meantime, the Wound tries to go back in the center of the burning area.*18:25How to get it out?>Enter the area, force it out and trust Hirano's aim [rollDC20]don’t roll before the option is chosen>Negotiator try to communicate with the creature(keep it on the parking lot to use the LLDR)

>>3501598>>3501623>>3501627The raging inferno is defying all logic, is it alive? a walking barbecue? what fuels the fire? what is it made of to burn for so long? Only your negociator, an ex magician and tamer, seems at ease with the strange. "Alright men, ready yourself" Each one of you put a firefighter jacket over your armors. It would probably be a good investment to have fireproof suits for the SAT, hell maybe even NBC. Without further delay you team rushes in the main street of the residential area, surrounded by burning houses, on the trail of molten asphalt. "Captain, this is Hirano. I can guide you from the ladder" "Perfect, we have to surround it and force him back on the parking lot !" You grith your teeth while arming your MP5, imitated by your men. Under the acute direction from Hirano you perfectly surround the creature toying with a burning piece of plastic from a car. Still out of the creature list of things to set on fire or to chew you intend yo keep it like that and leave an exit path leading to the parking lot. "Archer One, once the target exit the street you are clear to engage, we will guide the missile" "Copy that. Good luck Tokyo SAT. Over." SAT shields and firefighter jackets offers a mediocre protection against the blaze, just enough to not roast on the spot. It's time to get out of here. "Fire !" Short and precise burst of 5.56 bullet startle the creature. Nothing can pierce its skin, the impact is at least just a bother for it. However, considering what awaits it at the end of this street it's more than enough. At moderate speed, the creature close the distance with the parking lot, getting out of the inferno where the LLDR can produce a nice beam of infrared light. “Archer One. Hellfire away.” Far away in the night sky, you can spot the distinctive light path of the missile fired from the anti-tank helicopter. It impacts right on the parking with surgical precision, producing a small earthquake. "Hirano, did you hit it?" "Y-Yes... I think... We did it captain. There is just a big crater, nothing on fire." 18:30 The echo of the explosion slowly fade to the crowd cheering. After all, the firefighters can now save their houses which you take care not to damage, including this microship workshop. You take the radio to congratulate the pilot and Hirano but are suddenly interrupted by a strong gust of wind, it's so violent that you are projected back on a fence almost knocked down by your shield. When you open your eyes again, there is no more fire it was all extinguished in a second. "Ca-Captain! It's HER!" Painfully rushing back to the parking lot, you witness the reason of that meteorological phenomenom. The little girl, riding a metal rode with large wings. After a short moment of bewilderment, you realize with horror those are the same wings from the bird you thought you defeated last time._______Rank ADamage: ¥500,000Image: GoodWound: Killed, corpse lost
Hirano, your tech support officer, lost no time and uses the camera function of the LLDR to take photos of the little girl."T-Th-That's not what you think. It's for the report to the Prefecture...""Yeaaaaah... right, you freak." said another SATThe operator who lectured Hirano take of her helmet. This tall brunette fiery stare is more frigthening than any creature from hell."What was THAT, captain? You nearly got killed. When are we getting back the APC and our 357?"An other operator take of his helmet, lighting a cigarette and after hesitating a moment to grab her by the waist he tries a friendly shoulder to shoulder hug."Come on Kiriko-chwaaan... Let the captain die for us from time to time."The last operator keeps his helmet and his Call of Duty hood, then only use hand gesture to express himself."Arrest. Her. Question mark."First contact with the Mahou Shoujo>[I hope too but I have questions for her] and write-in your questions(+1 loyalty for all since you keep your words)>write-in for something else
>>3501670>"Hello I'm Captain Itami and I have some questions for you.">"What's your name?">"How old are you?">"Why do you have powers/abilities similar to the creatures?">"What's the deal with the winged rod?">"Do you know any others?">"How can we contact you if we need you or anyone like you?"
>>3501670keep it simple; who are you, what are you doing, and why.
>>3501716>>3501730You make some hand gesture to the masked operator, going by the name of Ghost, to leave her for the meantime and start adressing the girl suspended in mid air. Sometimes the wings are not flapping but she is still 10 to 15 meters above you."Hello, I'm Captain Itami from West Tokyo Metropolitan Area. Can I ask you a few questions?"The little girl sligtly looses her balance and comically waves her arms everywhere. You thought she was panicked but it's more like being ashamed. But since you did not assume right away she was a Wound you simply brush aside any profiling exercise."Who are you, what are you doing and why?"After some time of reflection she shouts from all her lungs."I'm a Magical Girl and I will save you from the Wound because I am justice !"You try to hide a rictus from your face, this doesn't answer anything. "Can I know your name and how old are you young lady? Maybe we will need to contact you in the future.""That's a secret. Tehe" she answers right awayGhost has made a few step backward to get a better aim, you sign him to calm down."What's not a secret then? Are there more like you? Why are you like this?"Now, again after a pause she answers "He said you don't have to worry, we fight the badies. Now I have to go home or daddy will get angry, bye mister policeman."Another violent gust of wing propell the girl toward the south and she disappear in the night sky. Kiriko is getting angry at you for not allowing the attack helicopter to shoot her down. The negociator you left on the bench step toward."Itami-kun, you know I'm here for this kind of situation.""You mean you are here for the risk bonus of your contract.""You are jealous of my natural talent, even with 10 year old girls. After all I am GENASAGIRI, the greatest magician, the human mind has no secret for me.""Wait you can tell her age from down there?""Of course and I can say how much she weights and how tall she is. But you did well Itami-kun. I think I could make the next conversation last longer if we try to make her feel guilty and shatter her childish misconception of justice."
Police Prefecture, 19:00Back at the Prefecture you can finally take of all your armor. It's nearly past seven and the lockers room is busy with the standard police night shift. Even after such an heroic fight the only reward you get are the words of praise from your colleagues. After all, they paid a heavy tribute during the first month. "Itami-san, the commissioner want to see.""Yeah, yeah... in his office right? Are we really going to do that cliché scene, really?""Uh... Actually he is outside and there is a car waiting for both of you."Intrigued, you comply, only to find an imposing Toyota Century flanked by two Hinomaru. The commissioner open the door from the inside with a pale face. You feel a little ashamed to enter such a luxuous car in a tracksuit when everyone inside is wearing uniform or business suits.The car engulfs itself in the Tokyo night to some government building you can't recognize. Only a silent stare answer your questions until the car parks underground. There, an eldery woman greets all the occupant one by one, including East and North Tokyo SAT commanding officers."Good evening captain Itami, thank you for coming this late."The lunatic woman is interrupted by a cough from the range of men in uniform. You spot all branches JGSDF, JMSDF and JASDF."Please minister, can we hurry. The SDF have more urgent matter at hand."The silence in the car was in fact well contained anger as not a single occupant is sympathetic toward the old lady. But with an equally controlled attitude, she invits all of your to a conference room where you can finally know where you are."Thank you for coming to this first meeting under the supervision of the Ministry of Environment. As you may know we had a serious pest invasion problem since...""EEEEEEEEEEEEh?!""Is there a problem Captain Itami?""N-No... Excuse me, I just thought it was...""Captain Itami... Our Prime Minister may have done some tricks with the Constitution to allow the SDF to assist police forces, we are not at war. As far as...""Not YET" interrupts an army general."As far as we know, this is a pest invasion and should be treated as so. Anyway... we are not here to talk specifically about the creatures."
A giant screen becomes the only light in the room, displaying the very recognizable figure of the Mahou Shojou, the picture taken by Hirano one hour ago. Flying on her winged metal rode, her face is radiating with joy. Maybe if it was an ugly witch on a broom the military would have show less disconfort. "This is a joke. More vigilants are appearing trying to steal our job, we have to stop them.""What an outrage ! Can't we just arrest them?""How many already? Fifty? A hundred? Will it ever stop?"The old lady take her time to study the reaction of the paper generals whose only experience of battlefield are joint exercises with the American. Contrary to the SAT which has been secretly involved abroad in many counter-terrorist operations."Captain Itami, you are horribly silent. What's the matter?">support MOE (special non-lethal ammo)>support SDF (special lethal ammo)>[I hope too but I have questions for her] [roll]

Only after she defeated the giant bird she seemed to have acquired these... power. I don't know how to call it. Why her? Can somebody else do the same? What do them know about the monsters? Are they even our ally? I want to know because information is power."The assistance is completly stunned by your honesty, except the old lady. She indeed knows how to act cool when facing critics, after all she was the one making the annoucement for Fukushima. One general, the head of the JGSDF is still lost in his thoughts, eyes closed, carefully polishing his mustache.“Well, at least this is what I think.”You try to conclude in order to resume the meeting. The general who kept silent speaks directly to you.“I like you young men... Only those who fought themselves the enemy should have the right to speak. You have those new 40mm swiss launcher, right? Maybe I have something with more punch than rubber bullets.”The old lady slowly claps her hands to silence the row of approval from the other military.“Indeed, maybe if the JAEA dared to speak their mind like you are doing now we could have avoided the Fukushima tragedy. /You have those new 40mm swiss launcher, right ? Maybe we have more effective than rubber bullets.”Both the general and the minister nod simultaneously agreeing for the first time before continuing the meeting.“Tonight, at 8pm, in about... 30 minutes, the Prime Minister will make an anouncement. You all received the notice so I will make it quick. As you just said the SDF have more urgent matter at hand and so we will soon have to deal with the creature alone."The general feeling as he was directly adressed responds to the minister.“We are not opposed to the creation of a special civilian agency, nobody wants military in the street. But what you are about to propose is madness”“This is the standard procedure when dealing with a pest infestation general and it's already implemented in our Law.”>Write-in to guess for special bonus>Keep silent

>>3504554"Yes, quite like. We are going to create a special civilian agency with military equipment to deal with Wounds but in the meantime we are going to deliver hunting license to anyone willing to assist, including these strange girls."The military present don't seem happy with that but none want to directly oppose the decision. What ever is this "more urgent matter at hand" it's important enough for them to sit on their honnor. Maybe except the head of the JGSDF speaking his mind again very calmly."Minister, do you have grand children ?""I will have let you know I have hunted my first deer when I was 10""That's not what I was trying to explain... I have a grand daughter you see, probably the age of that one on the screen. On Christmas I thought it was a good idea to offer an iPad because to have voice chat with her and my son when I'm too busy to come.""Very touching story general, sorry but we didn't have iPad in my days""It's been a month since I offered her this iPad and when I visited her recently we couldn't get her of the screen. So his father did what every father should and confiscated the screen... She was angry... I am ashamed to admit it but she was beyond angry. I swear if you have seen those eyes when she trhew a tamper at her father, punching his legs and shouting and running...""Children should learn about nature before learning about technology""What will happen when these little girls will get angry?"The assembly kept silent for a while, then focusing on logistic problem for the creation of the new special civilian agency. You don't really get what was going on as that unit will only be created once the Diet will vote the Law.Outside the building, no one propose to accompny you back. The commissioner just has a few words for you."Itami, you remember about a miroship workshop you spared... Well you have the strangest friends. It seems we got our APC back.">Acquired : Type82 Command and Communication Vehicle SAT version>Acquired : 4 40x46 Sticky Foam Grenades>Acquired : 4 40x46 High Explosive GrenadesIt's nearly 8pm.

>>3504576>Watch PM address
>>3504594You arrive at a big intersection where every pedestrian is focused on the giant screen on a building. The Prime Minister is adressing the nation in his crisis uniform, generally reserved for natural disasters. "... and as a response to the People's Liberation Army Navy exercise in the Yellow Sea I have decided to increase our presence in the area and conduct several exercises with our western ally. I can guarantee that it will not diminish our homeland response to the current crisis. My determination to vote the S.W.E.A.R. Law is unchanged. Insurance companies have received help from the National Bank ..." In the middle of the square some Otakus wearing magical girls outfit are executing a grotesque dance. Some office ladies are laughing at them.
>+1 loyalty for all specialistsThe address is over and switch to a TV plateau where a bunch of expert paraphrase what has been said. "Professor Hiyajo, what have we learned about those creatures?" "Nothing." "Uh... C-Could you go in more details just to reassure our viewers" "Oh of course.. The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. And so all our hypothesis have been debunked." "So... what are they not?" "They appear at random. They have no lair or hunting area." "And this is why the government has dispatched the SAT all over the country." "Yes but this is also a stupid move." The TV host can barely contains his nervousness and plead his host in white coat to not comment further. "What about their strange abilities?" "We have yet to study a living specimen, but from our analysis and particulary DNA sample we found out that they were very normal. A normal dog suddenly controlling fire and nothing to explain this change. One thing for sure it's unnatural... supernatural." "An octopus changing people in stone in Osaka, a giant spider hypnotizing people in Fukuoka, a killing moth swarm in Hiroshima and more recently a giant tornado inducing bird and a fire dog in Tokyo for this week alone. Do you think this is magic?" "Absolutely not. I believe everything has an explanation. We just don't have one yet." The Otakus in the center of the square boo at the screen. "Professor, there is one subject we have not discussed yet. What do you think about the vigilantes" "Oh ? You mean the Magical Girls ?" The Otaku are now ecstatic dancing harder and stronger, making the salarymen leaving faster. "Yeah I think a natural predator will appear at some point but we should learn from our previous errors." "Care to explain" "The British first introduced rabbits in Australia but without natural predator the creatures proliferated exponentially, severely endangering the local fauna. Then they introduced foxes to hunt them and balance their number. However the foxes also hunted other natives species which never evolved to survive such predator." "Are you saying we should be more cautious than the British?" The professor laughed like a little kid, containing abdominal pain. "Hahaha... No, you don't understand. We are not the British, we are the small and frail opossum."You get back home trying to make sense of today's events.
Tokyo SAT waits in the restroom of the Prefecture, you are still trying to make sense of last night events. Despite doing your best to kill a dog-like fire creature, a Magical Girl showed up to save the day. Everyone makes the long face, except your Call of Duty fan operator going by the surname of Ghost who is wearing his mask at all time. Kohta Hirano, the tech support is on his smartphone, looking on some 2chan. Kiroko Myamoto, the weapon specialist, is lifting a weight with Jinro Maeda, your last crew member eying on her. The high-speaker suddenly breaks the atmosphere.“Higashiyamato skating center. Higashiyamato skating center. Wound spotted attacking civils... Wha... What the hell ?! I'm not goint to say that...

The 40mm swiss grenade launcher was initially designed for rubber projectiles in the heated riot of Paris, equipped with a reflex holographic visor, police officer can perfectly blind someone. It's also designed to take all sort of 40mm projectiles, the JGSDF illegally labelled some 40mm grenade as "rubber bullet" and the MoE provided you with anti-wild animal sticky foam grenades for it. After 20 minutes of driving your team cross the police security perimeter around the ice rink arena. Outside there are many frostbite victimes, the ice tiger is still inside. As usual, Camp Nerima will be ready as well as your negociator-beast tamer.In one of your pocket you have the official the hunting licence to deliver to the "Mahou Shoujo", what do you think of the situation?>[Warrior] We are not baby-sitters, focus on the Wound>[Detective] We give her the document and ask more questions >[Hunter] Stay alert and study her>Write-in

It seems that the metro station was closed for security measures, from afar they urge you to order a strike on the large dome building. However a hellfire missile might not be enough, you have to guess where the Wound is on the ice rink and this means entering. A very calm handsome man in traditional japanese outfit crossrs the perimeter and pulls a blue rose from nowhere to offer it to the policewoman, it's Gen.creature"Please pardon their unmanly behavior, but rest assured because I, GENASAGIRI, famouse magician, beast tamer and ultimate gentleman will solve this in no time""T-Thanks mister, b-bu-but please stay outside the perimeter !" the policewoman tried to raise her voice while blushing but it's too late."Itami-kuuuuuuuun ! I heard it's just a tiger, you can count me in""He's with me” you briefly adress to the policewoman "I didn't know the risk bonus was that good for you to come again”"I'm not doing this for money Itami-kun, but for fame""You know you are not forced to enter. It's just the law, SAT has to ressort to every peaceful solution before using weapons. Same for SDF, they have to wait for an official request from us. We just need you around."Your team carefully enters the building clearing all areas as if it was an hostage crisis, taking corner wherever they can, pointing their MP5 in every directions. Gen follows and quickly brief you on a tiger's behavior. Since it has attacked human before, it will recognize you as inferior and attack particulary if you try to flee, also they are very curious but also cautious. So if something new appears in front of them they will keep their distance until it attacks first. It means you can probably disguise yourself. You come to an intersection, on the left the locker room, on the right the arena, in front of you the stairs to the control room and behind you the exit.>Negociator find a disguise in the locker room>Hack the control room to open the roof for the missile>Fight the Wound_______________________https://www.scribblemaps.com/maps/view/MSRU/C6bprVhZ0U https://pastebin.com/yLtrqpM7

>>3505420>Does the tiger know we're here?You don't know it knows or not.>it'll survive 40mm HELast time you needed 10kg TNT charge.>>3505312>>3505359>>3505868So I count 2 votes for split and 1 vote for hacking the control room first.
>>3506344Could we get the disguise then hack the control room then look for the tiger altogether?
>>3506372You can do the two actions one after the other or split and do both at the same time. You just don't know where is the tiger yet.
>>3506377Lets split, just tell everyone to maintain radio contact and proceed cautiously. Each team member has a 40 mike mike anyways.
You and Kiriko are the first to storm the control room, clearing the path so that your tech specialist can open the main computer with the access code the employee gave him. The control room is a platform with a large panoramic view on the arena, probably used to monitor sports event or hockey matches. The Wound is circling the plastic wall of the arena, it looks like a regular white tiger surrounded by sharp icicles and strays of blood.“There are almost no analog commands, everything is centralized on a single OS, so it should be easy.” said Hirano while typing.The tiger is trapped on the ice rink unless it grows a thumb and turn knob from the access door from the securty glass. You almost felt like in a zoo with this relative security, Gen with Maeda and Ghost on their side are looking for disguise in the locker room to distract the tiger, Maeda is the first to comment by radio.“Should I distract it with my laser while our magician saw it in half, boss?”“Mister, I have been a disciple in the Wat Pha Luang Ta Bua. The big cats have no secret for me” replied the magician in the comm“But come one, can't we just rise up the temperature and melt everything?”After a simple push on Enter, the roof starts moving in a loud mechanical cacophony. It was Hirano's turn to answer on the mic.“It's not an Air Conditionner... Actually it works like a refrigirator."“You know how a refrigirator works right?” Kiriko taunted after an embarassing silence. ”But you know... this might work, we can replace the freon with gasoline from the compressor and lit the whole area under the isolant." Now that the control is yours and the roof is open you can choose to imobilize the target for a clean missile strike using the LLDR from here or going along with your weapon specialist plan.>Negociator distract the tiger for an airstrike>Weapon specialist plan of turning the ice rink in a pool of gasoline [rollDC40-10]
>>3506413>Negociator distract the tiger for an airstrikeLets see how smart the wounds are, and if they can communicate.I figured We'd go with Gen for the disguise and the other 2 would go for the controls since ghost is a tech specialist.

>>3506413Do we need to distract the tiger for an air strike? Isn't it trapped in the rink?
>>3506413>Negociator distract the tiger for an airstrikeI like the scribblemaps, I hope you keep on using them. Also is the tiger cute? Not like it matter or anything just a question.
I will make and update to clear things upFrom the relative safety of the control room you monitor the Ice Tiger. It is moving along side the plastic wall of the arena, definitly not liking being trapped. You asked Gen to find a disguise in the locker room, where he found a hockey team mascotte costume and the roof is now open. If you order an airstrike you are not sure it will land on the moving target. You have to capt its attention or blow the whole arena with the plan of your weapon specialist.>Negociator distract the tiger for an airstrike>Weapon specialist plan of turning the ice rink in a pool of gasoline [rollDC40-20](wait before the option is confirmed to roll)
>>3506600>Negociator distract the tiger for an airstrikeIf the tiger attacks then just use the foam grenades to keep it in place for the missile
>>3506656Why not use the foam grenades to keep it in place then call the airstrike so we don't miss?
>>3506905You already choose not to engage at the beginning of the mission. Next time I will put a persistent "Fight the Wound" option at every steps of the mission.
>>3507348We can't just lob grenades at it from a distance? Like from the safety of the control room?
>>3507348Also Airstrike when?
>>35073845 minutes (forgot to add ETA in this one)>>3507382look, if another player really want to fight the tiger I will consider the option
>>3506414>>3506599>Negociator distract the tiger for an airstrikeThe locker room is filled with shoes from the people who left in a hurry but there are still some ice skates. However before putting them Gen check meticulously every corner of the room, he seems to know what he is looking for. Meanwhile You, Hirano and Kiriko went to check the creature, it is circling the plastic wall of the arena, it looks like a regular white tiger surrounded by sharp icicles and strays of blood.“Ah found it !” exclames the magicianHe exhumes a hefty mascot costume from the players locker. A big red hairy yeti with disturbingly realistic eyes going by the name of “Gritty”.“Oi Gen, do I really have to remind you this is not a circus at every mission?”“What?” asks the magician after putting the ridiculous mascot head. “Do I look like someone who doesn't know what he is doing ?”“Honest answer?”“Itami-kun, it's the easiest job I ever had in my life. Distracting animals until you send a missile on them. What could go wrong?”Indeed, after entering the bench and, Gen waves his arms at the tiger approaching very slowly of the plastic wall. The tiger, maybe troubled by the unique look of such a big pray have slowed down its movement and starts a back and forth routine to jauge it. Meanwhile, Hirano easily target the Wound with the LLDR from the control room.12:30“Archer One. Hellfire away.”Gen distracts the creature long enough for the attack helicoptere to come here and fire through the roof. You just finished ordering the launch of a laser guided missile when the fabulous magician exits graciously. Hirano easily gets the missile on the almost immobile tiger“Tango hit. Tango hit”The fire blast creaks the ice all over the arena and explodes all the freon pipe under the isolant. The liquid instantly evaporates now exposed to air temperature. You have to wait before being able to confirm.“Tango down. Tango down”The isolant of the whole arena is burning and flames licking the plastic cage threaten to propagate the fire. On top of that the roof is open, from which thick black smoke is escaping. The building will burn down to the ground, you didn't need your enginnering degree to know that. “Allright everyone out of here.”“Wh-What do you mean Itami-kun? Dressed like this?”You take no time explaining the danger to Gen and drag him by his grotesque costume, his skating shoes scraping the floor. When almost outside, booed by the crowd of salarymen you can spot her. Hovering in the sky on her winged metal rod. The Mahou Shoujo. Since you tell your men to stay alert and study her, they remember your orders and start examining the Mahou Shoujo or you could start something like with the malicious magician and his silver tongue or someone else>[Hunter] Did you see that ?(+1 loyalty for all since you keep your words)>write-in for something else, maybe have Gen bullshit her into surrendering or revealing something...
>>3508175>write-in for something else, maybe have Gen bullshit her into surrendering or revealing something...Hey little magic girl! My hairy gary magic friend here would like to introduce himself to you.Gesture to Gritty Gren.Also I would like to ask a small favor from you if possible. It would be a terrible shame if the building burnt down due our battle with the big bad ice tiger, I was wondering if you could put out the fire like you did last time.
>>3508355>introduce himself to youyou can go into more details if you want of what Gen should say and for what purpose, otherwise I will just make something up according to his personnality and own interests
>>3508364Basically. Kinda want to see him sputter and get catch off guard and see him panic a little before spilling spaghetti all over her.Point is just to engage her and see if we could at least get a name and some additional information from her or get her more talkative.
>>3508399Still in mid air, she suddenly reduces the size of her rode and hold it like a hammer to strike down something invisible while you prepare Gen for his main role."Get down mister policeman !"Flames raises from her rode, dancing in the air and engulfs in the building through the dome. The fire explosion creates a fast depression leaving no oxygen inside the skating rink. It's over, the fire is extinguished. Your team was unable to catch any of that and is waiting for Gen to do his thing. Pointing his hairy arm at the little girl he shouts from all his lungs."Is that how a hero is supposed to act?""Wh-Wha-Wha-Wha..." the Mahou Shoujo is stunned by the critic from Gritty the mascotte"We wanted to give you a hunting licence but you are too irresponsible for that. Who told you there was not anybody inside?""B-Bu-But he sai... You're a meanie !""No" Gen takes of the huge mascotte head, leaving his goofy cartoonish face for something more dramatic "I am a hero and I am never late""WHY YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND?" An invisible shockwave knocks down you team, it's emanating from the girl. Even if you lost your [Hunter] focus, you can't help but notice her clothes have changed from sportswear to a ridiculous dress from the worst anime studio imaginable just after summoning fire on the building."You don't understand and I can't tell them how many time I saved them !"She dashes in the sky toward the south with a last shout of despair, maybe cries. Everyone on your team look at them with a severe stare, except Ghost who shake his hand back and forth for a "something is wrong" scuba sign. You are the first to adress the magician."Good job mister magician, you made a little girl cry""Men and their ego..." interrupts Kiriko "Was thanking her that hard?""At least we know she really behave like a child... You know I might even think she is going back to her school right now" you continues_______Rank BDamage : ¥1,000,000Image : GoodBeast : Killed, corpse lost
Ministry of Environment, 13:00As soon as you come back to the prefecture, an agent is asking you to immediatly report to the press conference room of the Ministry of Environment one block away. Unsure about the urgency of the request you remind him about your armor. It seems you will never get a chance to go by unoticed however, you are invited to a conference with a buffet and that means free lunch. People are gathering in the underground amphitheatre leaving buffet and cocktails behind, except for one strange woman in a lab coat."Oi miss, what is going on here ?""I a-a-a-am not stealing, officer.""Do you mind if I take so... Wait do I know you? I have seen you on TV, no?"She was stuffing as many petitfour as she could in a tuperware and left without offering a response, still panicked.A strange woman. Anyway, the conference was about to start and you found yourself a unoccupied back seat in the dark where nobody will notice your armor. Another woman in labcoat is adressing the public, she looks more mature and pretty than the previous one."Thank you for coming to the first conference of the S.W.E.A.R. project. We are here to present you our work since the incidents of this summer regarding the so called Wound creatures and human who appear to have lanifested similar abilities""Wha... *MUNCH* What are you going on *MUNCH* about Kurisu? You don't know shit about *MUNCH* the Wounds"The scientist lady going by the name of Kurisu was interrupted by the same lab coat girl you saw earlier. Now you remember this arrogant tone, she is Mao Hiyajo who was interviwed after the PM adress... and she is eating your lunch."Ahem, so let me introduce our first speaker, Dr. Mao Hiyajo. Please don't clap...""As requested by the Ministry of Environment we came back to the basic and made a macro analysis considering them as an emerging population.""*COUGH* cultist *COUGH*" taunted the first scientist lady who stepped back"... It actually provided interesting result see." The screen now displays a graphic with an incomplete bell curve fitted on a few dots. "This is the direct representation of the Wound population over time since this summer"It was the public turn to intervene, concerned whispers ran through the assembly "so many..." "See that pic in August : almost 9000" "Gods help us", then the only single other man in uniform beside you stands up. He defiantly lit up a cigarette in this Green Party ran building and made his voice resonate without a micro."I don't understand much about science but seeing this curve crashing... Are you saying these bastards will go extinct?""As much as I would want to keep my place at the top of the food chain, I have to disagree" Another curve appears, dephased, it could be a bell curve but incomplete. “And this is the frequency at which the Mahou Shoujo appears. It was quite a challenge to fit this one since they don't stand out that much we used some probabilistic tricks to..."
>>3508984"Come one, spare this old man of your explanation. Are you saying I can just sit at home waiting for little girls to save me?""Yes. That's what I mean. Assuming these curves represent the Wounds and the Mahou Shoujo population, the first is the pray and the second the predator and they will both decrease.”The voices get louder and louder until the interruption from the other lab coat girl."Are you still treating this as a pest invasion? From where? Don't try to look more stupid than you already are Hiyajo. This is a disease""No, you are the fool. Trying to hold on to your prestigious title of Professor, you are dealing with something that does not follow the laws of this universe?""That's bullshit""No you are. Have your autopsy revealed anything? How can you explain a sudden mutation without DNA changes? An anatomical upheaval which still does not explain their power by the way.""That's why we need a living subject to and scan its brain. The creatures have some sort of abilities and they use it consciously so the answer must be in their brains." "And what if your little instrument shows nothing?" "Then we just have to build the instruments. Are you one of those cultists idolizing Wounds and Mahou Shoujo?" "We know nothing about them, are you a scientist or not? Are there more than two faction, can we befriend them?" The old man being apparently the only police officer in this scientific meeting (but who looks more liek a yakuza) is stepping on the scene to end the fight. Do you want to support a scientist? >[The Truce] Support Mao Hiyajo, comportemental study of the creatures >[The Machine] Support Kurisu Makise, scan the brain of a Mahou Shoujo

>>3509086>>3510503>>3510641>>3511006>>3514739You step on the scene and grab the most excited of the two scientist, Mao Hiyajo, lifting her from while she kicks in the air toward Kurisu Makise."Let me go, let me go !" shouts the young lab coat lady"You've talked enough, let's hear a different point of view" you try to calm herOne of her kicks goes in the opposite direction and land on your armor protective cup. It's not enough to hurt you but she uses this opportunity to escape in the backstage."You... You will hear about me ! I don't need this government money !"Kurisu Makise, held very elegantly by an arm key lock from the other cop is released and thanks you and continue her speech."Thank you, mister...""Itami. Itami Youji""Itami-san then. I look forward to work with Tokyo SAT. Please consider capturing or convincing a Mahou Shoujo to surrender to be of the highest priority. We can't sedate a Wound or capture one but if we can scan the brain of a cooperative subject we could learn which part of the brain is the most active when a power is used.""And what if your instruments shows nothing""Don't be stupid Itami-san. It all starts in the brain. As we have seen from their action it is a consciously controlled power and the movement they execute before using their ability are too basic to be the trigger."The old man who came to help you exhales smoke puff and interrupt both of you."I don't really understand what you are trying to do with them, but littl girls should go to school not on the battlefield."Still very calmly and hands in his pocket, the old man takes the central place on the stage for his address."Gentlemen" still without a mic, his voices covers all the chatters "I am colonel Norio Wakamoto, former head of Counter-NBC terrorism squads of the Riot Police Unit."The whispers go even louder now that the man has revealed his identity "its him, the demon lord" "the demon lord of Fukushima" "he forced people to leave their homes by burning them""I will not stand by as Tokyo is transformed in hell.

You are just afraid that, I, the great GEN ASAGIRI will overshadow you”“That's enough Gen, you went to far with the prince”One of them men prepare a kick on Gen's face under the cheering of a bunch of “ladies” who came out of the host club.“Yeah get him Matsuo”“Show him who is the boss”“I'm taking this on my instagram”>write in

>>3514921>>3514946While the host kick is trying to gain momentum you shouts from all your lung Gen's name. Luckily you changed before leaving the Police Prefecture."I come directly from the general office, I need to speak with you."A high pitched noise from the lady adressed in your direction halts the movement of the host. Judging from their faces, you drag all the attention. Taking no interests in these women you guide Gen to a nearby ramen shop with a firm corporate tap on the shoulder. In the distance you can hear a warning from the hosts."You still owe us money Gen, don't fuck with Kakihara"A sill run down Gen's spine and he stops for a second before rusing where you want both of you to meet. After ordering for both, you can start asking what was that.>I thougt you were a magician, you lied?>Do you have problems with the wrong kind of people?

Apparently he doesn't have one with internet. Typing like a madman he then shows you a video on youtube."See. That gorilla almost killed that kid and I was there so I entered in the cage with a magic trick and hypnotized him !"You take back the phone and see under the recommendation a lot of these "memes" videos featuring Gen as a great magician, a top 10 including him and Houdini, even a mention of him as a seiyu in Magic Kaito. You only knew him from a bank heist where he successfully convinced the robber to surrender, maybe his internet fame convinced a higher-up to hire him.

Ministry of Environment, 8:00Your office was moved from the Prefecture of Police to the Ministry of Environment where you SAT has now been integrated into the S.W.E.A.R. agency, solely dedicated to the Wounds and Mahou Shoujo. It's a whole floor of the building where scientists, insurance counselor and ex-police officer are working together in an open-space to organize the next phase of the S.W.E.A.R. project.Colonel Wakamoto is doing a speech, looking quite bored by the perspective to end his carrier in an office."... and so to sum it up, we are now working on a repartition grid to for all Japan. Each area will have SWEAR barracks ready to respond to the threat. Don't forget that we work upstream and downstream of that problem, so scientific department and legal department I'm counting on you."Kurisu Makise, standing left from the colonel quietly bow down and an office lady at his right adjust her glasses dressing a stern lool at the assembly."Alright. DISMISS."The team is looking quite gloomy, Kiriko seems absent minded, not reacting to Maeda flirting and Kohta depressed. However Gen is all smile because he now has an official job in a government office and maybe because he cleared things with you.

Japan?""If the girl wasn't smart enough to NOT fly straight home I'd say she's in the eastern part of Hachioji""That makes... 22 Elementary School, Junior High School and University. But captain...

Thus they will not give a bad image of our capital with the incoming Olympics Games.""We get all their weaponry now? Do we get to roll around in a tank while attack helicopters fly overhead and we get assault rifles now?"Bursting into a cute laugh she looses her composure and gives you a motherly smile that neither do feel warm nor humiliating."Excuse me, but you remind me of my little brother... Ahem... We will get some APC and maybe guns of higher caliber. I don't know the details but not all SAT systematically resorted to devastating airstrikes like yours.""How is that even legal...""Well Itami-san, under article 76 of the Constitution the armed forces may assist civil protection in certains circumstances.

>>3515091Have Hirano help us set some equipment up.>Hirano proceeds with the very humiliating task of asking every Elementary School, Junior High School and University for their female student photos.What a perverted mind. I was thinking setting up cameras around intersections and overlooking the neighborhoods and schools. Get access to ones already in the area owned by the government. Not go up in person and ask for all the pictures. Silly Hirano.Okay so set up cameras overlooking neighborhoods and intersections, plus the school entrance, roof and open field areas. Tap into the local traffic cam network and have the feed go into our servers running facial recognition software.Throw on some cameras on some tall buildings overlooking the city in all 4 directions of east, west, north, and south. We may get lucky and see her pass one of the cameras and were she may land when she goes flying again.Don't forget to put some in the other directions like the south and west of the map which have not had any notable wound attacks yet.Also what year is it?Maybe spend a little time with our guy since he misunderstood our intended directions and humiliated himself.
>>3515135I was not very clear about this, but you work with very limited ressources. The Wounds are appearing all over the country and every Yen was evenly distributed to each Police Prefecture SAT.Also, the S.W.E.A.R. just moved to its HQ in order to reorganize the already dispatched SAT in S.W.E.A.R. barracks all over the country as Colonel Wakamoto said. The only ressources your were promised until now are the APC and guns from the SDF which are still not thereAnd since you did not retrieve a single Wound corpse and systematically resorted to attack helicopters you have no leverage with the legal and scientific departments. You can always spend time with your crew outside of office time.tl;drYou currently work with 0 Yens and no connexions
>>3515142and no equipment....I thought there would be some little itty bitty remains of the wounds, or are they not that resilient? They were after all immune or not really affected to bullets from our guns.
>>3515147>or are they not that resilientMaybe, maybe not. You only know that the Fire Dog is blind and deaf and that with the Ice Tiger they have animal level of intelligence, because you played it safe and choose to obliterate them with a missile.
>>3515142Do we have any cameras we can set up? Can we steal one from our or two from our HQ since they are moving?Okay how about modifying this >>3515135 plan with having Gen go to 22 Elementary School doing a magic performance?He can swoop in and do a mind check and look at some faces that are in the crowds and classrooms. NO PRIVATE PLACES LIKE LOCKERS OR WASHROOMS!Maybe do a little fake recruitment and have him proclaim hes looking for a magically gifted apprentice to help him battle evil and learn magic etc, and claim that he has a magical hero license from the government and would help his assistant once she graduates him courses would also be given one.Or some bs that we can make up.Also have some fake cards made and try to talk to some of the brass about getting a sort of fake magical licensing Bureau opened up and ran out of like the old building with one of our guys and a secretary.

update in ~14h
Your team get ready just in case and jump in the Subaru Imperza to give a presentation just in time for lunch break at Hachioji (#1) and for the end of the day at Toyogaoka (#2). Ghost, still wearing his mask agreed to play the role of the Wound in the childish presentation of "how to react to a Wound" while Gen was the one delivering the speech.The magician with his profiling aptitude is able to reduce the pool of suspect to 10 years old girls with short brown hair in healthy physical condition giving for Elementary School #1 and #2. Skilfull as a spy he can take photo of the girls matching this profile, but he can't put name on them or be absolutely sure that all girls are attending class today.During your trip back to HQ you are informed on the radio that a hostage situation involving a Wound is taking place in Teikyo which was the #3 Elementary School on the list.You were so close ! Maybe should have sent that mail But since you are very close from the place you can be there in almost no time.
Teikyo Elementary School, 16:00The Subaru Imperza parks on the training field of Teikyo Elementary School. You are the first on site, not even the firefighters are here as it seems the fire alarm is ringing in the building. In the gym, students are gathered with their teacher after following the emergency procedure. None has hone home yet so you can ask them about the situation. https://www.scribblemaps.com/maps/view/MSRU/C6bprVhZ0UvThis time, there will be no Hellfire missile, at least not before every hostage is rescued. Indeed a group of student are trapped on the 2nd floor with six wounds scattered in the main stair access. Apparently a girl got very angry during class and strong gust of wind ravaged her classroom just before the wounds appeared. They also inform you that a wall of ice was blocking access from the two other stairs areas.From your previous mission you know that-Fire Dogs are blind and deaf but sensitive to heat-Fire Dogs skin is impervious to 5.56-Fire Dogs eyes and other softer parts are maybe not bulletproof-Ice Tiger can control standard ice and can be contained -The Mahou Shoujo can produce strong gust of wing and fly on a metal rodeWeapons&Equipments Unmarked Subaru Impreza WRX STi Police Car Metropolitan Police Department | Ramming -10 to Mana4 40x46 Sticky Foam Grenades | Launching -10 to Agility4 40x46 High Explosive Grenades | Launching -10 to Mana8 30rdMP5 Heckler & Koch MP5 9x19 Maschinenpistole 5 | Firing -1 to Willpower, -1 to Mana, -1 to Agility4 M84 pyrotechnic Stun Grenade 180db 8M cd | Launching -10 to Agilityhttps://pastebin.com/yLtrqpM7Where to enter in the building?>main entrance>side entranceHow to get to the second floor>Fight (how to fight the fire dogs if main entrance or break the ice wall if side entrance)>Stealth (how to conceal your heat)Any clever idea?>write in

This should help us draw the entrance wounds to the front. Make sure to stack alot of burnable material next to a wall in an reasonably isolated place that can take a missle strike, with a trail of gas leading them away.If we fail to lead both of them away or if one of them ends up being an ice tiger we wait for the fire wound to be lead away and clear the first floor room first by shooting it with a stick grenade, then we return to the original plan by breaking into teams and heading to the second floor.Break up into teams of 2 with 3 men in each. Enter through the side entrances to avoid the two wounds in the front. if they didn't take the bait. Have each team grab a water bottle for each man and a fire extinguisher for each team. Bring the Jerry can or a bottle of water filled with some gas left in it.Team 1 will consist of us, Gen, and KirikoTeam 2 will be Kohta, Ghost, and Maeda.Equipment will be distributed evenly, and we will try to acquire any extra fire blankets.Team one will go from the eastern rear entrance and make it up to the second floor and hold until team two has cleared their area and rescued and stragglers or hold outs.Team two will go up from the western rear entrance to the stairs and rescues any hostages there and hold at the second level until they are ready and signal to us across the hall.We will both start quietly moving down the hall towards the two wounds when we get to the outside of the room both teams will fire one grenade into room team 2 will fire a stun grenade into the center and team 1 will fire a different one depending on what wounds are in the room.After we take care of the second floor we move up to the third floor as a team going from the eastern stairs. Make sure all the girls keep calm and quite before rescue. We then either blast the ice door or try and melt it, or break a wall down to bypass it.Ask one of the girls to show us where the art supplies are on each level when we get the chance.Subaru Imperza can seat 6 people or did we force gen to ride in the trunk?
>>3517370I don't' think we have rappel equipment, we might be able to climb onto the second floor.I would not encourage disabling the magical girl when we are facing 6 wound demons. Maybe afterwards, but we don't have to since I am fairly certain we can just meet her after school or go to her house since we know what school she goes to and can easily find out where she lives after this.
>>3516951Is the plan doable here >>3517432 or do we need to revise?
>>3521090Yes, it's ok, I will run the battle at 17:00 CET. There will be a lot of rolls.
>>3517432After gathering fire blanket to cover your heat signature from the Fire Dogs, you split in two teams. You, Gen and Kiriko enter on the eastern side entrance while Kohta, Ghost and Maeda use the west side entrance.You took your time to start a fire and prepare water pressure hoses, hoping nobody inside was hurt meanwhile.Still invisible to the Wounds, team one and team aim at their target using their holographic visor delivering two Highe Explosive grenade with their GL40.roll me 2d100 (DC 10)we will try to end this quest properly, even if it's not popular

Kiriko still angry to have missed that shot empty a whole magazine on it, imitated by Kohta at her side and Maeda on the other side, scared of her primal warcry. Meanwhile, Ghost takes his time for three perfect hits.The same dog-like whine can be heard from the creature before it collapses motionless, the flame dying out. Before progressing to the second floor by the main stairs, you try to use a fire chemical extinguisher. Lucky for you it's not a water based one because that would have caused an explosion. This central part of the building seems to be a three floor based library with a balcony.During your progression you hear a lot of child screaming and feel the building walls trembling, unsure of what the second floor has in store, you throw a flashbang but it only results in the two Fire Dog throwing fireballs from their mouths where the grenade has exploded.

It rapidly expands, fueling the fire but also slowing down the Wounds movements. However, they are not completly static and are now turning in the direction where the projectile came from, possibly preparing fire balls as their growl is suggesting.1st Fire Dog W0A0M0 - motionless (extinguished)2nd Fire Dog W10A20M10 - motionless3rd Fire Dog W10A10M20 - englued4th Fire Dog W10A10M10 - englued Unmarked Subaru Impreza | -10M 2 Sticky Foam Grenades | -10A 2 High Explosive Grenades | -10M 5 30rd + 11rd - 9x19 | -1WAM 3 Flashbang | -10A

>>3524608The stun grenade tossed between them is seen like a small animal for the two wounds, particulary the magnesium reaction which raises the temperature far above human flesh. They instantly throw fire ball on it, harming each other in the process. A higher pitched whine can be heard, they clearly striked a lethal hit to each other. However after a more careful observation, it seems that it is their infernal aura that is causing this much pain because of a bleeing injury exposing their inside to them. Apparently the flame is only on the outside. After debating against the sticky foam and their own powers, the two creature fall motionless and extinguished.1st Fire Dog W0A0M0 - motionless (extinguished)2nd Fire Dog W10A20M10 - motionless3rd Fire Dog W0A0M0 - motionless (extinguished)4th Fire Dog W0A0M0 - motionless (extinguished)What now?Unmarked Subaru Impreza | -10M2 Sticky Foam Grenades | -10A2 High Explosive Grenades | -10M5 30rd + 11rd - 9x19 | -1WAM2 Flashbang | -10A

>>3524666I was thinking of using a grenade to blast open the ice wall but since it seems like we can go all the way to the top floor from the middle I guess we can save the grenade.Move up to the third floor if we have any mirrors we use that to peek over the edge to see what we are facing.We will use the remainder of our flash sticky and explosive grenades. Its likely that both of the wounds here at the last level are going to be ice tigers, so we will toss a stun grenade at one and a sticky grenade at the other.At this point we will observe the effects and then follow up with HE grenade on the more troublesome one, and see if we can capture or "kill" one relatively intact.

>>3530375Step by step, Kiriko and you fell the raw power of the wind. Every dust particule is like a razor leaving slight injuries on unprotected part of your body. The pressure too, like walking in an invisible pool of oil. But, with much effort you are finally at few feets from the Mahou Shoujo, still howling like a banshee.Through the tempest you can hear faint voices from your communication device."Cap... the Fir... og we thought was..."
>>3530381So I'm going to assume we do a write in here so...Grab hold of her and hug her, tell here everything will be alright, and all she needs to do is think of home, and mom and dad.See if we can trigger the sprinkler fire suppression system why didn't I think of turning that on in the first place?Now the only question is if its the 2nd dog or the 6th one.

>>3530422Kiriko, lestening to her mother instinct hug the little girl, whispering soothing words to her. This is terribly effective and many debris which were flying around are now dropping on the floor or just slower. Af is something was clouding her mind and that now a part of her brain was unable to think several steps ahead. Also, with Kiriko's judo level she was locked down in the strongest womanly grip ever imaginable, restreining her mobility to 0.On the ground floor the Wound which you left for dead has started rampaging with fire without being able to target other team member. However, after Maeda clumsily trigger the sprinkler supressor, the water fall down on the creature. The very high temperature causes an explosion reaction with water devastating the whole ground floor main stair.You can't go down, you can't go up (unless you defeat the Mahou Shoujo) and there are still hostage to be rescued in front of the two ice wall as indicated by the survivors.

>>3530432The sprinkler have now calmed the fire on the second floor, but the explosion has completly destroyed the stairs on the ground floor. Using your drenched fireproof blanket you try to sooth the little girl but can't do any better than Kiriko. It's like messing up with a doll. Her eyes drift on an invisible horizon, she is absent.Children cries are still echoing from the blocked stairs on the side of the building but through the wind storm you can also hear a familiar noise. The police has arrived and hopefully ambulances too if there is any children still alive in the classroom.Maeda and Ghost joind you on the second floor to relay a transmission from the exterior. The call of duty fan, tries his best in hand gesture, making vast movement which could be interpreted as shouting in his language. It's Maeda who has to explain"Captain, they say that some big gaijin with a gigantic sword has entered the buildi..."A shattering ice noise interrupts Maeda, it comes from the left.You have to act fast
>>3530437Move out into the hallway.The team below us does the same and take the stairs up to our floor and meet us there. If its a hostile we will have who or whatever it is that shattered the left ice wall caught between our 2 teams.

>>3530444>>3530441Forgot pic, the guys going to the stairs can go UP to our level and whatever happened with the ice wall we will find out and take care of when we see what it is.
>>3530445Maeda, Kohta and Ghost run on the left side of the first floor to flank the possible hostile, while Gen do the same to get to the ice wall on the right. The Mahou Shoujo is still in a catatonic state, unable to move or speak maybe even thinking but her raw supernatural power is still causing a violent storm in the central stair.And then, under the flickering neons light of the left corridor, a large figure approach. From his back he pulls a gigantic zweihander now scrapping the wooden floor as he marches toward the Mahou Shoujo. "I heard its hunting season in Japan" Surprisingly, the bald gaijin speak a perfect japanese. "What do we have here?... hmm"Maeda, Ghost and Kohta are now on his back, coming from the first floor."Captain the hostage are safe on this part. He delivred them""Hey look guys, I wans't trynt to steal your job so just let me do mine."He starts examining the Mahou Shoujo, turning her small head left and right as if she was a farm animal under the suspicious gaze of Kiriko still holding her."I see... I see... Thanks god, she just deployed her Dress and not a Castle. You weakened her contract so it will be easier for me."On this word, the two meter tall giant lift his zweihander, ready to pierce through the Mahou Shoujo'es neck without harming Kiriko. He was ready to decapitate her.>"Wait !" try to talk to him>"Freeze" point gun at him>"Go for it" don't bother him
>>3530454>"Wait !" try to talk to him>"Freeze" point gun at himShes needed for interrogation and later study at the Defense ministry. People died today, her dying would mean all those deaths were meaningless do not kill her, let us have her in our custody. Perhaps you would like a job working with us to better understand these MGs and their strengths and weaknesses.
>>3530458"She's needed for interrogation and later study at the Defense ministry." you protestYour expertedly trained team point their MP5 at the stranger almost instantly after you but the gaijin does not seem to care about it."I will witches" he responds "that's what I do and I have been doing it for a long time now... ""People died today, her dying would mean all those deaths were meaningless do not kill her""Aah... here we go again. You learned nothing since Abe no Seimei... pathetic."His muscles flexes to arm his shoulders and take the final blow, the gaijin just quietly adds"Deus Vult">Fire>Don't fire
>>3530466>Fireto woundfuckers stealing our kill, we did all that hard work and hes gonna try and gank our exp points!
>>3530466dammit Gen you were suppose to rescue hostages on the 1st floor and meet us on the 2nd.
>>3530466Might as well use any of our grenades and sticky foam if we have any left on the stranger.
>>3530478You canon falls on his legs to break his foothold and fire three consecutive burst before he plunges his sword without even noticing the two holes in his thigh. Your teamates are ready to replicate but a sudden explosion of light, sound and raw kinetic power crushes everyone on the walls. Except for the giant, still standing strong despite his injuries, you are all on the floor. You drop you MP5 and prepare the last sticky foam grenade.Aiming back at the gaijin your GL40 only point toward a young japanese woman, obstructing your shot with her arms spraid."Please pardon my teamate terrible human skills." she adresses to you"Look who's talkin" "He will now cooperate and let himself be taken in custody.""Come on Rin. Can't you just use one of your toy.""As I said, he will surrender and let himself be takend in custody.""Rhaaa, ok, ok." He lets his sword fall on the ground. "Could you at least check my leg, some didn't go through"The Gaijin thighs stopped bleeding, in fact only his clothes are red with blood, every inches of skin see is completly healed.Gen on the right side of the building is still trying to break the ice wall with a fire axe, but the hostages in this part of the building are now coming toward you. They are safe.>fire the sticky foam grenade anyway>discussion, write-in
>>3530490>discussion, write-inOh for fucks SAKES! Is anyone else going to appear now? Santa Claus? President Shino Abe? How about an Ice tiger, I haven't seen one of those in a while. *Ahem*. Apologizes for that outburst, now would everyone here who is not a former hostage please kindly introduce themselves? I'll start. I am Captain Youji Itami of the Japanese SAT, to my left is Kiriko and behind you is Maeda, Kohta, "Ghost" and..... the person who is futiley chipping away at the ice wall down the other end is Gen. Together we form a sub-detachment from the newly created SWEAR agency.Would you please Introduce yourselves and explain what you are doing here interfering with our operations... AFTER we have taken care of all the hotdogs? Also please stop trying to kill the little girl for the time being. If we wanted her to be dead we would have taken her out ourselves.Ask the girl to come with us as well for further questioning but make it clear she is not under any arrest barring being a person of interest relating to what has just transpired.Save the grenade, stuff is expensive and we are underfunded and under supplied.
>>3530490There's still that firedog on the ground level. Ask if there are any takers or if we should just let the fire sprinklers slowly kill it. Get to killing it before the hostages go all the way down. Maybe use the sticky foam grenade on that one.
>>3530498By girl I mean Rin and by Ministry of Defense I meant Environment.
>>3530490Tell the silly Gaijin if he stops struggling and disarms for the time being we'll administer first aid.
I'm about to pass out here. I need to sleep its 5 am here for me.

>>3530506Will u be back later for q&a stuff?
>>3530512I'll stay awake for as long as I can.
>>3530498You decided tyou had enough of this nonsense and start asking the real questions"Oh for fucks SAKES! Is anyone else going to appear now? Santa Claus? Prime Minister Abe Shinzo? How about an Ice tiger, I haven't seen one of those in a while."The woman named Rin stopped tending to the gaijin's injuries, they both look at you with disdain."Apologizes for that outburst, now would everyone here who is not a former hostage please kindly introduce themselves? I'll start. I am Captain Youji Itami of the Japanese SAT, to my left is Kiriko and behind you is Maeda, Kohta, "Ghost" and..... the person who is futiley chipping away at the ice wall down the other end is Gen. Together we form a sub-detachment from the newly created SWEAR agency."Rin looses her composure and throw an angry fist at the giant who jumps back on his feet."T-Thanks Rin, it healed itself as usual. D-Don't bother for the lead inside, one more one less anyway... hehe""Did you forget to introduce yourself again?"Indeed the giant injury is completly healed and he get his full mobility back and. And he will need it considering how angry he got his partner. The woman bow down in apology and introduce herself. Harada Sachiko, the legal branch office lady just came in the room."I am sorry Itami-san, but we will have to let him go.""What? After he murdered a child?""His lawyer are very good they came to an arrangement with the attorney of Tokyo"As if sensing the defeat from there, Krügger lifted his handcuffs to ask for the key from the other side of the stained glass."I am Rin Tohsaka and this is Krügger. We are both contractors of Templar Defense Corp and we have a legal permit to carry weapons as well as that new hunting licence issued by the Ministry of Environment.""Did I forget to tell you that ?""Yes you did, you meat bag !" She said, throwing some punches in his stomach without any consequence "Please consider this as a hunting incident and let me contact Mr. Krügger lawyer."The Police has now reached the second floor informing you that the last Fire Dog was cut in half leaving 5 corpses and one tamed subject. Later at the Police Prefecture, the custody of Krügger has gone suprsinsingly well. He ate all his katsudon, drank all his tea to the last leaf."A true gentlement, when you are not assassinting little girls." Maeda shouted, playing the angry cop, his face way too close"A big boy like you must have his reason, am I right." followed Kiriko, playing as the nice cop with"Are you forced to be this nice to the prisonner Kiriko-chan?""What the hell Maeda ! Don't break character !"You try to interrupt the fight in the interrogation room from the other side of the stained glass but it's no use.
>>3530519Wait he actually kill our MG capture? THAT MOTH**F**K*R! Should have shot him with that grenade!Goddammit! If we ever we see him again he gets automatically gets shot with something.
>>3530519The SWEAR unit is now back at the HQ in the Ministry of Environment. On your desk you assembled the transcription of everything the Mahou Shoujo said and the reports about the Krügger incident. KOhta even compiled you a report on that Templar Defense Corp, a company that existed for centuries protecting the crusade trade route and the bank of the italian peninsula and now the best private security agency in the world.Even more troubling , the declaration of the Mahou Shoujo, no... of Sakura Kinomoto, 10 years old, apparently victim of bullying in school as her vandalized desk attested. Single parent family, very quiet and gentle... until she disappeared one night to hunt down a giant bird, then suddenly get the powers of every Wounds she defeated. Krügger mentionned a dress that was apparently part of her power and something about a castle.And finally one of her answer "He said you don't have to worry, we fight the badies." who was the man, woman or creature she was referring to. Even more question that the scientific department are still trying to answer with their 5 Fire Dog corpses and one alive tamed Fire Dog."Oi, captain" exclaims Maeda who bursted in the office "Did you see that? Chief Matsudaira brought us the Fukushima anti-NBC Riot Police equipment. Do I look badass wearing one of this?"END OF PART I and also end of this quest
>>3530530My only regret was being too sleep deprived to realize he kill the little girl. Also we never got to fully check out the school to tally our total casualties and fuck ups. Thanks for seeing it through to the end of this thread, shame you can't go on.What else had you planned for future threads in terms of mechanics and plot related hooks and stuff?
>>3531275>What else had you planned for future threads in terms of mechanics and plot related hooks and stuff?Three Mahou Shoujos with the same patterns : fight the wounds, try to discover who and where she is, fight the Mahou Shoujo and meet with the Deus Ex Machina character that could be used in the next Campaign taking place 10 years later. I already knew what powers the Wounds and MS should have and have written down their personnality. I choose where the MS battle would take place. I came up with an explanation on the common origin of the Wounds and their powers that the players could have discovered. I had a script on how the political situation should develop and many many webm or pictures to illustrate them.My combat system was designed for +3 players and since it was also an investigation quest so it needed a lot of players. I have ideas (maybe good or bad) but not the talent to make a good quest of them. I am very glad you played until the end, and I wish I could get better one day.
>>3531317Some constructive criticism and feedback incoming if you don't mind otherwise plz ignore.I enjoyed the assets given to work with, such as the scrib map. I admit that the scribb map was a bit weird getting use to but once I got the hang of it i referenced it whenever I remembered or tried to come up with a plan regarding something or another.Some small details could have helped or influenced me or changed the outcome of my decisions such as firing the sticky grenade foam at the Gaijin at the end if it was more clear that he killed the magical girl or that there was clearly no room to negotiate or convince him otherwise. I understand you didn't want to detail a little kid getting killed but it was sanitized so much it flew over my head until post refection in the prologue. I will also throw in that I was very tired at that point so I probably would have missed it anyways.I did not realize Kiriko was a girl on our team until after the school battle started. Not sure if I missed that earlier or we just lacked the details, and if that was intentional so we would explore the personal interactions with the team more. I would have liked it if the pastebin have a list of all the NPCs we met to reference or check things we may have forgotten.I enjoyed the little "loyalty" side missions we had or probably could have had if the one with Gen was any indication. It made me feel a little like being a tourist in japan from watching vlogs and expats, and it felt fairly productive and not too long.>I had a script on how the political situation should develop and many many webm or pictures to illustrate them.That would have been really cool to see, not many people go through the trouble to put in that detail or realism outside of GOT type of quests.As for needing 3+ players to do regular write ins for investigative stuff, you would probably need to give us options to choose as training wheels and make good write ins have enough of a bonus that players would feel highly incentivized to do them in order to not miss out on them due to the better benefits or results.For the tactical aspects, I naturally enjoy that for the most part, but it requires knowing alot of what you have and what you don't have plus character and NPC limits in high detail, since a lot of tactical planning will be greatly affected by what you can bring to the field and effectively use. I would have liked to have done a "tutorial" style Kill House mission near the start with the team like call of duty 4 did.The times you ran the quest was a bit of a pain since it was either when I was just waking up or should be sleeping.All in all I would definitely play again and I am sad to see it die, but at least it had a ending and you let us know which I greatly appreciate.Also sorry for the word vomit I'm typing in a rush so sorry if any of it comes off as inconsiderate.
Those templars could certainly be a decent plot hook if those bastards managed to cover up their involvement in all of this to the public.I think that dude single handedly caused the entire MG situation to snowball into the original thread's setting where they just outright kill the girls because negotiation became impossible once the mahous thought the police were going to kill them. It was already teetering, but the first death being an execution was just the absolute worst case scenario.
>>3531702I'm still mad at them for taking our prize. Worked so hard to get her in alive and to suppress her to her state and that polished dickhead just went and ganked us of all that hard work.I wonder if the MG had any control of the firedogs, or is she summoned them somehow. I initially thought they were attracted to her because of her magical outburst.Assuming she was soley responsible for what I think was all the dead kids in that classroom, I already had a redemption "arc" planned for her somewhat.>I think that dude single handedly caused the entire MG situation to snowball into the original thread's setting where they just outright kill the girls because negotiation became impossible once the mahous thought the police were going to kill them.That's a pretty good theory, I'd support your theory if we ever had to pitch it to the Minister of Environment.
>>3531464I will work on better write-in and options next time, thanks. Also, you could have loyalty mission with Kiriko and Kohta, each would have allowed you to explore a different part of Tokyo and learn more about the daily life of Japan facing the Wound invasion.I should have forced the battle with the Wounds rather than give you alternative options like the LLDR. But I liked the concept, I think that if monster appeared at such rate over Japan you could not give high explosive to every policeman. It's a way to share ressources.>>3531702I don't really know at what time I should have run the quest and I live on CET. Maybe if I had a better hook I would have had more players.>>3531902Maybe if I gave you more time to investigate on this Mahou Shoujo you wuold have learned how hard she was bullied despite saving her comrade everyday. We all faced or will face this situation in our life, our effort not being appreciated until we snap, call it burnout or lover quarrel or whatever. I think giving supernatural powers to a child facing such problems is interesting. I had a anime girl generator >>3516896, and I really had the intention to let you catch her if you find her in all the suspect you should have sent that email Each had an aliby or elements incriminating them.If I ever make a part II, it would be not before one to two week. I need to reflect on those criticisms.
>>3532475Why do I get the sneaking suspicion that not Rin and chrome dome are prison wardens/overseers in the secret Gulag. Might make for a funny scene if the future squad has to deliver them back instead of the normal pickup due to an accident and the OG unit immediately mistakes him for a hostile.
