The Story So Far:


Leozak, commander of Breastforce and the battle fortress known as Trypticon, having split off from the main Decepticon army to form the Destrons(as a way to gain energy for the Decepticons, prestige for himself, and furthering his own agenda), and having liberated the military dictatorship that was Carbombiya(and giving the EDC a public relations black eye in the process), sets his sights on the next fuel-rich country to liberate from a cruel and oppressive dictatorship while also entering into into a treaty with the newly formed nation of Quebec.

On the other side of the globe, Tracks, Sky Lynx, and Scoop have been dispatched to stop the (possibly unintentional) rampage of Weirdwolf and Carnivac through downtown L.A. and Hollywood.

While in Denver, Nightbeat, Siren, Hosehead, and Getaway(with Rev) investigate the sudden millitant anti-robot(or at least anti-Autobot) movement.

(OOC: Please put all away from base missions in here, and remember to bold the character locations. Thank you and happy RPGing.)

"...and you would have total discretion on any deployment that involves Transformer interaction, even if the commanding officers involved were of higher rank than you."

Marissa frowned. "You say that, but this Samson person doesn't seem to have had much discretion at all. He made one bad decision and got forced into early retirement."

"Samson was an idiot," General Brathwaite told her. "This wasn't the first debacle he caused. This was a long time coming. You're much more competant than he ever was. You'll have a free hand."

Marissa sighed. "OK. I'm willing to give it a shot, anyway. I probably don't have the slightest clue what it's going to entail, but I'll do my best."

Brathwaite nodded, then pulled a thick envelope out of his desk and tossed it to her.

"What's this?"

"Your new Command branch uniform, Colonel Fairborne. I took the liberty of having it tailored while you were enroute."

Marissa shook her head in disgust.

"You can change in the bathroom," the general told her. "I have to present you to High Command in the Hague personally before they can make the appointment official, and I'd like to get it done before we have another disaster on our hands."

Weirdwolf padded quietly after Carnivac.


"they sort of contort it to me looks painful yes but Monzo has never complained, well never on that particular subject . The Squishie seemed nice much nicer than certain Squishies."


Weirdwolf turned realising he had left Monzo behind hobbling after them on crutches.

"Lift the lil knock off into his hatch again please."

A news studio mid broadcast.


More on our breaking news story transformers have invaded LA although it is unclear whether they are Autobot or Decepticon Channel 17 brings you this exclusive interview with Crystal De' Canterre spokesperson fot Mother Earth first.

Crystal: call me Renard , Bob how you say Fox or I am thinking in my case the propre translation would be Vixen . We at MEF like to remind ourselves of our connection with our animal friends.

Bob : You have some interesting theories on recent events ?


Crystal : We at MEF have analysed the 2 sides and have noticed that the Decepticon forces have more animal type individuals as purely mechanical beings this shows an impressive effort to be at one with the natural world. We should support them.

Bob : What about the Autobots?


Crystal: They have pas de animals or very few , I understand they have some members patterned after les dinosaurs. Which shows they gave up trying to be one with Mother Earth millions of years ago

Bob : What about the attack on the studio and the release of all the zoo animals currently roaming our streets ?

Crystal : I have see the footage and one of the robots has some kind of damage to his head I think the destruction was inadvertent . As for the death of the zebra , they are paterned after animals , they are doing what is natural . We tend to forget that the natural world it is Red in Tooth and claw. As for the releasing of animals we salute these robots for freeing there comrades . There is too much i say too much destruction of the habitats just so people can eat the Mcdonalds , we must give up all these things that destroy the wildlife no more cars , no more polluuting factories, back to nature I say.

Bob : Time i think for a few words from our sponsors , after the break Channel 17 brings you Lady Tara LA's leading psychic .


Crystal : the Decepticons are our friends they obviously want to be closer to the animals . We must help them in their aims.

Bob : cut cut cut , somebody call security.

Carnivac grinned evilly, turned, walked back, and picked Monzo up with his mouth. Carnivac returned the Nebulon to Weirdwolf's hatch, made sure the hatch was closed. Then Carnivac continued to go his alternate path back to the shuttle.

" She didn't scream and run like squishies usually do, " Carnivac said, almost agreeing with Weirdwolf.

Monzo : oi Wolfy tell Toto to be carefull , he dropped me in here i'm bruised all over.

Weirdwolf grinned wolfishly at Carnivac He damped the audio from his passenger compartment and all that could be heard were muffled thumps.


"remind me talk to medic when we return on how Scorponok survived the death of Zarak think i , is a subjec that needs studying yes."

Getaway groaned.

"You should have brought Joyride and Slapdash along instead," he told Nightbeat. "They're not quite as annoying."

He turned onto a run-down-looking street, warily studying the various shady-looking figures that cast suspicious glances at him as he drove by.

"Maybe not. Slapdash would probably forget to stop these guys from stealing him. And wouldn't that be fun..."

Weirdwolf speaks:

"still we should think I move to more advantageous terrain , instead of waiting to be hunted down like turbofoxes lets make it difficult for them. look there is the entrance to the squishie underground transportation network over there."

He looks up.

"threat analysis , scanning database target identified Tracks , armament twin missile launchers in vehicle and robot mode, carries a black beam gun normally, weaknesses extreme vanity. main threat missile launchers , gun only works on optics."

Weirdwolf dodged into the relative safety of the subway entrance humans scattering at his approach . He hoped Carnivac had followed his example.

He looked round at the humans gawping at him in wonder and awe , some of them in fear and an idea formed in his head this was Hollywood, it might buy them some time."


Padding over to a raised part of the floor he addressed the squishies , speaking quickly before Tracks could land and chase them.


"greetings humans all the events of the past few hours are a movie part of by a Mr um Bruckner, a stunt for the publicity for the film yes. Me and my colleague here are scouting locations for the movie to see if transformers will fit in tunnels here.

One of us a blue robot will star be . He is also in charge of extras casting and will let you into a secret just between us this robot Tracks vain is , if you rush over shout his name and compliment him and ask for autograph might help get you all part in the movie , is a big movie and needs lots of extras , Mr Bruckner believes in realism and wishes genuine squ.. human underground transportation system users for extras .

My colleague Tracks will be arriving shortly blue robot is or maybe blue car of sports variety. We need to go now Mr Bruckner is very strict on schedules is , but if all talk to Tracks he will help you yes."

Weirdwolf grinned wolfishly not often in this war did one get to use psychological warfare."

Infecticon
2005-05-03, 07:50 PM
" Then why are you here!?" Carnivac yelled at Tracks, then shrugged and followed Weirdwolf into the subway.

As weirdwolf began to speak to the squishies, Carnivac shrunk a bit so that he could fit better.

optimusskids
2005-05-03, 10:22 PM
Weirdwolf chuckled as the Squishies crowded the entrances .


"so Carnivac which is route best for to shuttle get ?"

Scoop replied

"yes sah after you sah "

Infecticon
2005-05-03, 11:04 PM
Carnivac said over the commlink to Weirdwolf " At best, I can only guess. After all, these tunnels are like a slagging maze with speeding trains running through it. The trains will hurt if they hit us and there are places we won't have enough room to dodge them. Then we have to factor in the fact that the tunnels are always in different states of repair or just don't exist any more. The only thing that is certain, is that the maps do show that we can't use the tunnels to get all the way to the shuttle."

Carnivac let that sink in before adding " My best guess is that we go that away."

Carnivac used his head to point towards the left tunnel.

Subway entrance, L.A.:


Tracks: -finishing his loop and diving back down towards the subway entrance, sees the crowd surging out-

Crowd: -through the yelling- "Tracks!..... Beautiful!..... Autograph?...... Movie role?......"

Tracks: "Thank you for your adoration! I knew I liked your species for a reason! You all have taste! But right now, I'm pursuing a couple of Decepticons, and that takes priority!" -retracts his black beam gun back into his undercarriage and skims in over the crowd, clearing the tallest by a few feet, wingtip stabilizers striking sparks from the walls and ceiling, soaring out over the now empty platform, smoke trailing from his ruined wingtips and vertical stabilizer tips, switching back to vehicle mode, all four tires thudding simultaneously onto the platform and skidding to a stop- "All right, you two! Hold it right there! I've got a bone to pick with you!"

Weirdwolf turns moving behind a pillar. He announces in a loud voice as the crowd surge in after him.


" Many thanks Tracks a spectacular piece of flying , you can see more stunts very similar in our amazing movie , now the first 50 of you to form a queue between us and him will get a minor speaking role yes , Tracks has all the paperwork , mind the subterranean transportation device conveyor , we wish not you to injure yourself."

The crowd start applauding a coupe of japanese tourists get out there cameras, many people with camera phones start snapping away.

He says this quickly before bounding into the left tunnel .

You'll be getting something in the mail!" -headlights popping up and highbeams flaring to life, roaring down the tunnel, activates commlink- "Sky Lynx, Scoop, this is Tracks!

Miss De' Canterre having been asked to leave Channel 17's office was on her way home via the subway.

A much more eco friendly alternative to the car of course there was the bicycle but not in LA with the traffic it was tantamount to commiting suicide.. she thought .

She stoppedi n her tracks a large animal form autobot in front of her

" hello Monsieur Oiseau , yes you the robotic bird , you are an autobot non and i see you have an almost animal form , making you closer to nature but still you cling on to your mechanical trappings , in your design i can see some kind of hints of a navette how you say a Space shuttle.

You must embrace Mother Earth , like your Decepticon brethren you must be at one with her become more like a bird , give up your mechancal side and grasp the organic becom a hawk an eagle an owl soaring through the skies ."

" I hope autobot Narcisus , isn't driving down the tunnel. All that electricity would spoil his paintwork and looking forward was to ruining it myself yes. Paws beat wheels when avoiding third rail are .
What is plan for after exit tunnels? Must bear in in if the autobots have half a central processor between them they could question human and track down our shuttle yes and wait for us yes. Must plan contingencies , if we could steal large enough human vehicle could have Monzo drive yes. Take us there undetected, would need to be automatic with his leg though."

Subways, LA:


Tracks: -seeing Scoop and Lynx, skids to a stop- "Blast! It's like a rabbit warren down here! -floors it again, heading towards the other two- "Time to get topside again, guys! Those lowbrow goons didn't just walk here. We need to find their shuttle."

Infecticon
2005-05-09, 03:55 AM
" The Autobots will only look for our shuttle if they mean to capture, get revenge, or kill us" Carnivac said " or if they are total miss-clocks. If they are just trying to case us off, then getting into a fight at the shuttle would be idiotic. It is a bad place for a ambush, we would be able to see them from a distance away and that is one of the reasons your plan wouldn't work. In case you haven't notice, the fence around the place is there to keep other squishies out and that includes their vehicles."

optimusskids
2005-05-09, 06:09 AM
Weirdwolf nodded


" aaa good point yes , in any case you have the remote and can move the shuttle from a distance. I suspect the autobots may choose that option though its like a turbofox den down here and autobots not the best trackers are. They may take the easy option yes , they dont have the patience for a long hunt."

Lieutenant Falk pulled up near the subway station. Some flake seemed to be talking to a large white transforming bird.

2005-05-09, 07:37 PM
Weirdwolf chuckled too.

" know you this is most fun have had for long time . A hunt some chaos. Monzo spent most of it unconscious and a chance to pit self mentally against Autobots instead of rushing at them across a battlefield. Think I should we do this more often yes. Maybe when we get back can get permission to form our own small unit yes . Then we get more fun yes ."

Infecticon
2005-05-10, 08:34 PM
" Actually I call this 'annoying the Autobots while getting minimal damage, so I can give a highly edited version of the truth to the Decepticon command' " Carnivac said. " As for the group idea, I don't know. I'm mostly a loner and we may not want to mention it right when we get back. My plan was to try and avoid the command until some thing else came along to distract them."

optimusskids
2005-05-10, 09:35 PM
Weirdwolf nodded

"planning was I to give edited highlights yes. We have just achieved a hit and run operation designed to test autobot reaction times and divert resources from post battle repairs yes, or thats what report will say. As for loner thing can understand that too. Sometimes is good to have someone watch your back yes. If you ever need any backup has been pleasure working with you and will help you out anytime yes .

Our only hope of finding out what they were up to is to find their shuttle!" -roars into a nearby parking garage, zooming up the ramps to the open air top level, deploying wings and taking off, somewhat unsteadly, into the air, the stabilizer tips on his wings and vertical stabilizers damaged from his flight into the underground-

"Monzo used it once think it must be or at least Squishie in origin "

He pauses. A train thunders past commuters highlighted by the yellow light. Seeing it was all clear he padded across.

He started humming to himself

The bots of Sector 452 G
Are the best at Security
We hunt our prey
all night and day
and on their trail do stay
over hill and dale
we track them without fail.

Our section security
is the best in the galaxy
in pursuit we're hot
we always catch our bot
we always win
we bring them in
we put them in the cells with glee
and lock them up and throw away the key

Through Swamp and mud over mountain high and ocean deep
We always find them . they can run and hide and leap
Hide in a cranny or crevice or nook
We always know where to look
Change their paint, their design add a tail
We will always be hot on there trail
The Hunters very rarely fail.

Our section security
is the best in the galaxy
in pursuit we're hot
we always catch our bot
we always win
we bring them in
we put them in the cells with glee

Cameraman: -sighs in exasperation- "Yes, Hans, I've got that monitor wall off to his side in shot as well."

Leozak: -watching the interplay between cameraman and field reporter, wondering how this species had gotten as far as it did-

ZNN studio anchor: -over speakers- "And the celebrations continue in Carbombiya with the naming of the new Prime Minister of Carbombiya and his cabinet. But even in the midst of the celebrations, dangerous work is at hand. Over to Hans Romulous in Carbombiya."

Hans: -moves in front of the camera- "Thanks, George. Even as the celebrations continue, and the people come out en masse to thank Breastforce for their efforts, team leader Leozak is still on the job." -looks over at Leozak- "Take it away."

Cameraman: -pivots up slightly, locking back into his initial shot-

Leozak: -slightly puzzled look on his face- "Take what away?"

Hans: -making a "go ahead" motion with his hands-

Leozak: -nods, standing to the side and slightly in front of a wall of monitor screens(ala Dick Jones from Robocop) showing images of the celebrations going on in Carbombiya- "People of Earth, I come before you today to say that the job here in Carbombiya is done. They have been freed from their oppression, freed from their brutal tyranny at the hands of a madman. And so the time has come for us to move on." -images on the monitor wall change, showing different views(pulled from the gun cameras of Leozak, Hellbat, Gaihawk, Drillhorn, Killbison, and Jalgar, as well as exterior cameras mounted on Trypticon) of the EDC attack on Carbombiya- "And we have found another group of people who have been oppressed, and now that they are striving for freedom, the EDC again moves to come in and slap them down. Are they so afraid that their tenuous grasp on your people will be gone that they must strike down any bid for independance by an oppressed government, or an oppressed people? The people of Quebec simply wish to be free, and the jackbooted heel of the EDC is coming down on them." -scowls- "We will not stand for this. In less than ten of your minutes, we will be launching to go to Quebec, to help them gain their freedom from their oppressors. We will not kill anyone, but we do mean to push the strangling tendrils of the EDC off their soil!"

Less then pleased, Carnivac grumbled as his pretender shell openned and he transformed. The shell glared at Carnivac, then shrunk and let Carnivac pick it up. After placing his shell somewhere were it wouldn't fall off, Carnivac headed up the ladder.

When he got to the top, Carnivac said " Since there is a chance that the lump and slabs have found the shuttle already, lets not get careless..."

April her lead at the hospital having panned out and the wolves having vanished was tracking the second set of transformers to appear. She had come full circle and was back at the gate house of Mount Lee talking to Glenn

April: "I'm telling you there autobots , you dont need your harpoon for them.

Glenn " I thought when I took this job I was set for the quiet life . Wolves , flying cars , dinosaur space shuttle things. It was less dangerous back in the Gulf , I tell ya .

Bob : sorry to interupt but the station wants you to do a live broadcast. Since most of the animals were rounded up the ratings are going down again.

April : ok lets start with a VO and shots of the autobots circling and then pan back to me.


Bob and April walked outside finding a suitable spot. Bob
shot footage of Tracks and Sky Lynx

April spoke live to Camera.

"It has been an exciting time here in LA . The past few hours have seen the destruction of a studio, the release of zoo animals to roam the streets and the desecration of one of our landmarks
(camera pans to HOLLYWOOD sign then back to April).

All has fallen quiet now, the Robot Wolves now clearly identified as Decepticons have vanished. The only visible sign of recent events is the Autobots (camera pans back to Tracks and Sky Lynx ) circling in the air like vultures or harbingers of doom. They are obviously waiting for what we do not know.

There continued prescence is ominous. If they are waiting for the Decepticons it can ony mean trouble for the citizens of LA . In the close confines of our city streets the collateral damage will be high.

Now back to our studio for details of todays other top news stories . Rumours abound of a new miracle drug discovered at Community General and relating to our earlier story, are Filmakers planning to use Autobots in there latest epics a remake of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or the Love Bug may be on the cards. Back to you Luke for more details on these breaking stories

Weirdwolf moved out of the space brushing the metal ventilation grill aside as if it was made of paper. Jumping down he found himself in another room, a door to the outside opposite. It was a break room for subway workers containing tables and chairs , a fridge , news papers , magzines , fixings for coffee and a television set.

Padding across the deserted room he paused and turned switching on the TV with his nose . He manipulated the controls till he found a picture of the HOLLYWOOD sign followed by a shot of Tracks and Sky Lynx.

I could use my shell to distract them, but they might not fall for it and I run the risk of losing another shell. Anyway, who knows if I could get it remade on the Nemesis at this time. We could fight them or draw them away from the shuttle by attacking the city, but that would prove that we were here to the Decepticon command...if they don't already know.

Atlas transformed out of tank mode as his large feet crashed onto the ground.

His left arm carried a large case filled with extra missiles, just incase he ran out. Catching up to the others had no been the more pleasurable experience of his life, however this mission would most likely become less frustrating from here on.

Besides, now he could probably scare the fragile organic life on this rotten blue ball of water.

He followed Cyclonus. "Should you require anything shelled before we arrive, I am capable," He pointed out.

Of course, that was just his own personal bias. He was known for overkill back on Cybertron. Artillery shelling happened to be his favorite way to soften the enemy before moving in. Bah. Who needed air power?

Getaway sighed.

So much for the element of surprise...

Getaway revved his engine, streaking straight towards the wall he was facing. A resonant BOOMBOOM sounded as his shotgun fired at the wall with both barrels. Brick and mortar melted away as a result of the plasma blast, letting Getaway zip through the hole his blast created. Pieces of brick clanged off his armoured body and windows, scratching him but not managing to seriously damage his highly reinforced structure.

As soon as he was through the hole, the Powermaster transformed. Still moving forward with the momentum he'd built up in vehicle mode, he shoulder-rolled, working the pump action on his shotgun to chamber two more shells. Coming up in a crouch, he scanned the room for targets. It was, he noted, filled with humans. Most of them had been approaching the entrance that Nightbeat had announced his presence at, but now they were turning to gape at the damage Getaway had caused.

Seeing that one corner of the room was filled with crudely armoured vehicles with weapons stacked inside them, Getaway trained his weapon on the nearest vehicle. Satisfied that it was unoccupied, he squeezed the trigger. As the truck exploded in a fiery mess, he turned to the humans.

"It would be a really good idea," he said, "if you did what my partner suggested."

About half of the humans immediately dropped their weapons and raised their hands. The rest of them, however, started scrambling towards the exits, spraying weaponsfire around the room at random.

Divebomb kept firing at all human resistance that stood in the way of the mission. He saw Rampage run around the base taking out all of the human resistance on the ground. He landed on the ground and transformed into robot mode. As he did Rampage transformed as well and caught up to him.

Divebomb: "Where the hell is Tantrum?"

As Rampage shrugged his shoulders Tantrum ran out of building wall and it colaspes.

Tantrum: "It was the human living quaters. Sigh"

"Learn to behave will eventually just while does take to realise , is seconds from becoming dinner. Partner could have been a cartographer or the science minister. Suppose worse could be could have got Krunk. Count lucky Carnivac not with Snapdragon stuck are."

Wish Scorponok had someone else volunteered yes.

" I suppose so" Carnivac said while briefly wondering if the other Nebulons got along better with their partners or if all them were like Monzo and Weirdwolf.
--------------

Looks like the prey got my point...more or less, the pretender shell thought as it accepted the meat. After all, the shell didn't have a reason to decline this 'peace offering'. A bomb would most likely kill Monzo too when it exploded and it wasn't like Monzo could poison it, even if he had the time to slip some chemicals into the meat.

This 'offering' wouldn't save the Nebulon from getting killed by the shell, but it might grant the squishy a quicker death then the one it had planned.

Moscow Industrial District

Moscow was the largest Russian city, and even during Russia's economic troubles it was one of the busiest in the world. It was also partially run by the Russian mob allowing shady dealings by anyone with enough money to occur as often as needed.

Fedor Yefremov, a former Soviet General was one of those people. He had strong connections to the mob through his son who was a 'member' of one of the more powerful groups. Yefremov needed a large factory and his son had it arranged. A former car assembly line, it would be perfect for what Yefremov had planned, and now after waiting for so long he was finally able to use the factory as he always planned. Not for building and selling arms on the black market. He had different plans.

"General Yefremov?" a female voice asked over an intercom

"Yes, Comrade?" The gruff old general replied.

"Mr.Lazarus is here to see you."

"Ah! Excellent! Send him in, quickly! And fetch the best vodka we have from the cellar!"

"Yes sir!"

There was a buzz followed by a click and the door to Yefremov's office opened, allowing Lazarus to walk in.

"Did you bring it!?" Yefremov asked like an excited child before Lazarus could even close the door again.

"Ofcourse I did! Remember I have been dealing with Transformers ALOT longer than you, General. However the trouble I had to go through TOO get it will mean this costs you more money." Lazarus replied smugly.

Yefremov didn't trust him, but in this situation he had no choice. No one else had the same type of access as he did and no one in the shady underworld knew transformers like him. Except maybe that fellow formerly of Cobra, but he had not been seen in years. "Money is no object, comrade!"

There was a pause while Yefremov stared at Lazarus' case. "Well will you let me see it!?" Yefremov asked getting impatient.

"Might aswell let you see what you are buying." Lazarus walked slowly to the desk and put the case down, turned it so the handle faced Yefremov and popped it open. Inside were blue-prints, schematics and several disks that had all the information needed. "It was called the Binal Technology. It was referring to the joining of both transformer and human technology."

Lazarus removed one of the more in-depth blue prints showing it to Yefremov. The Russian general quickly snatched it out of his hand and gazed at it adoringly. "Amazing.." he muttered in the thick Russian accent.

"It would allow a transformer to retain almost all of it's previous abilities while at the same time upgrading it's fuel-efficiency, durability, power, and also updating technology to human standards." Lazarus spoke of it with much glee. "The only problem was lack of test subects. We will be the first to even attempt this procedure, and hopefully the first to succeed. If we can succeed with this one you have recovered we might be able too actually clone it and make dozens, if not hundreds!" Lazarus spoke quickly as he got excited.

"We would be unstoppable. Not even the transformers are that many in number..." Yefremov was surprised by this. "Are you sure it is possible?"

"It is very possible General. We would rule this world and any other we wanted with an army like that at our disposal. Not just Russia!" Lazarus spoke, the lust for power getting to him.

"Let us not get ahead of ourselves, comrade. We must make sure we get the first one right, and then we can work on the rest of this world." Yefremov replied a down to earth tone.

"Ofcourse General... Russia first," Lazarus conceded.

Lazarus moved through the freezing Moscow morning air. He flashed an identification card to the guard at the gate. The armed guard just nodded and looked back to his partner in the booth behind him and waved his hand. The man in the booth nodded and pressed a button and the chainlink fence gate slid open.

Lazarus marched through and pushed the door open stepping into the factory immediately letting his discomfort be known.

"I now used to being awoken at five in the morning, especially in below zero temperatures. So this better be good Yefremov." His voice carried through the nearly empty factory like a crashing wave.

"Shut up and get over here, comrade!" Was Yefremov's stern reply.

As Lazarus turned the corner he was greeted by a pile of awaiting parts, most singed or damaged.

"Is it...."

"It is, comrade. This is the first scavanging team's drop-off. Two more are on their way. We will see them within days!" The old Russian spoke with excitement.

Lazarus pushed past Yefremov towards the organized pile and went directly for the head components.

"The head is almost intact." He spoke, not really seeking a response.

"Ja. We were not expected such luck, but that will save time."

"I believe this one was named... Sun... Sunstreaker. Yes, that was his name." Lazarus was speaking more to himself.

"And that means?"

Lazarus smiled as he knelt down lifting up a piece of one of Sunstreaker's optics. "That name... Sunstreaker. It won't do. I shall rename him... Grimreaper."

"Rather over dramatic, don't you think, comrade?" Yefremov asked.

"It's more menacing than Sunstreaker, isn't it? Besides, if we call it operation 'Binaltech' that information gets around. A name change is in order no matter what we do. Sunstreaker would attract transformer attention, Binaltech would attract world governments. We need to play this like it is some sort of normal black market weapon. That won't work, we need to avoid as much attention as possible." Lazarus said as he stood up and turned around walking back towards the door of the factory. "I am going back to the office. I have planning to do. We need the internal core, after we get that I can begin reconstruction and then upgrading." Lazarus exited into the cold air, although he was much less bitter about being up so early.

The Omega shuttle came in from the sun, just over head of the gathered Decepticons. Skyfall spotted Atlas Omega attempting to take off and opened the forward missile ports. On the bridge, Nemesis smiled with his inhuman face as the lock-on tone sounded. He fired 2 cluster missiles at the large Decepticon The left the tubs and split into four almost instantly (total of 8 mini missiles) that raced down at the Decepticon.

Skyfall opened the troop compartment doors and his voice called out over the comm:

"Targets aquired! Everyone out! Pick your targets and help your friends!"

Leaving the piloting and control of the Omega to the minicons - Skyfall lept out of the command chair and jumped off the command deck. He was transformed before he exited the shuttle - pulled strait up, allowing his sensors to adjust. He then began to look for Cyclonus

"Yes! This is what I wanted," Atlas Omega said as he spiralled down, bareling managing to avoid the missiles.

*This is going to be like crushing a mound of tin* He thought to himself as he spun out of control. "Atlas Omega, transform!" In mid-air, he transformed and landed on the ground just in time to see Skyfall coming in.

Optics widening in shock, his two massive cannons flipped over his shoulders, locked on, and fired two massive energy beams, as usual, the beams caused the barrels to become white hot, making them unable to fire another energy round, or artillery round for that matter until they cooled down again.

Atlas Omega's arms moved up, shielding his head and chest as he was showered by the explosives.

Razorclaw looks towards the sun when the autobots arrive. He pauses for a second and then falls to the ground. He lands on his feet, transforms into lion mode and runs towards his team mates.

"Autobots are on the attack, we must defend Cyclownus and the fuel reserves. Headstrong, Tantrum will help out Atlas and take care of the shuttle and the mini-cons. Divebomb and Rampage, protect Cyclonus and Cryotek out of here. I ..."

He looked up and saw Skyfall streaking towards Cyclonus.

"That one is mine."

The Predacons flew in different directions, but Razorclaw transformed and flew straight up. He kept flying, he raised his right hand and was going to upper-cut the incoming Skyfall on the nose.

Well, that's not good, but how am I sure he's not bluffing?

The Neo commander thought to himself as he opened fire on Cyclonus' back end. He was quickly interupted by Razorclaw though. Skyfall quickly transformed and threw his legs infront of himself, thrusters on max to keep him from running into the Predicon.

"Hello Ugly!" quipped Skyfall, firing his wrist blasters at the face of the Decepticon.

Tempest
2005-06-09, 02:39 AM
The Predacon commander expected to land a succesful blow but the Autobot was too quick for him this time. He saw the shot coming, he had enough time to re-act, but instead of blocking the shot or avoiding it he lent closer and fired a shot at Skyfall's mid-section, the blaster fire caught him in the shoulder however, but it was only a minior injury.

Brave Maximus

Skyfall deftly engaged his foot thrusters and dodged back, the little Micro Master twisting away from the much larger Predicons blasts, continuing to pepper his face with blaster bolts.

"Hey Nemesis, feel like shooting this guy?"

This was responded to by 2 cluster missiles firing from the Omega Shuttle and heading towards the Predicon:

"See ya!" Skyfall transformed into jet mode, pointing strait up and hit his afterburners, just behind him the two cluster missiles split and locked onto Razorclaw - 8 mini missiles screaming at the Predacon.

Razorclaw saw as his fire missed Skyfall and how he dodged out of the way and went after Cyclonus. He brang his sword out of hyperspace and was about to give pursit when he saw the missles. He fired at barrage at them then began to use his sword to cut them down to size before they impacted on him.

Rampage and Divebomb were on Cyclonus' tail making sure that no autobot got a clear shot. They saw Skyfall moving and began to fire on him.

"Cyclonus, kick in your afterburners and leave the area. Triggerhappy and Ramjet escort Cyclonus." Then a sick smile formed on his face.

"Predaking, Atlas and myself will destroy these fools." Cryotek then got a lock on to Skyfall and fired his liquid nitrogen filled torpedos at the ship.

Greatshot attempted to bank away from Atlas Omega's blast, but he quickly felt the heat as it ripped through his left wing. The large Autobot did his best to compensate, but it was too late. Fire licked at the shredded wing as Greatshot shrieked toward the earth.

Greatshot angled upward slightly, then transformed to car mode. The landing, though bumpy, was much better than it could have been.

Greatshot whipped around quickly, adjusting his targeting computer until Atlas Omega was firmly in his sights.

"Things are gonna go differently this time, pal."

Skyfall kept his afterburners on max, spinning and dancing through the laser blasts coming out the other side only mildly singed - but a hint of liquid nitrogen had cooled it off - though any more and he'd be doing what his name implied....

He spotted Ramjet heading for the Omega Shuttle:

Oh no, not again....

"Nemesis! Target each of the jokers behind me birrage of 4 each!"

As Skyfall headed for Ramjet his blasters firing at his jet intakes.....

The Omega Shuttle's other two missile ports opened up and Nemesis locked onto Cryotek, Razorclaw, Rampage and Divebomb - then released 16 cluster missiles, each homing in on their target. Once they were close enough - they split into four, so each target had 16 Mini missiles coming at them!
***********************

Inside the Omega Shuttle, Artfire and Stepper stood at the door, giving cover for Aero Blade as he hopped out. They spotted Tantrum and Headstrong as they headed for the door, apparently trying to barge in:

"Well, that's a pretty dumb idea....." Smiled Stepper

"Shall we?" responded Artfire with a cocky grin.

Steppers answer was to pull his two fireball pistols from his hips and fire with all three weapons (His Target Master also fires superheated Napalm) at Tantrum and Headstrong. Artfire aimed his sniper rifle (railgun) through the blaze and fired at shot at the Rhino Decepticon as they headed out of the shuttle.

Razorclaw saw the battle continue through the air as Cyclonus tried to make his escape, but Skyfall wouldn't give up. He saw as Tantrum and Headstrong went after the shuttle but got shot and gave up their chase. Divebomb and Rampage had fired volleys at missiles and had dealt with them and Razorclaw used his blaster to pick them off long range. Tantrum wasn't as lucky.

"Enough of this Predacon's merge to Predaking!!"

Divebomb and Rampage flew away from the battle to were Razorclaw was, Headstrong was helping Tantrum move but with the constant damage he'd be more of a hindrance. The five brightly coloured Predacons merged to Predaking at once. When the transformation was complete most of Predaking’s leg had gone into repair mode and seized up meaning that gesault couldn't land on it, or use the mortar rounds. He did however summon his sword and blaster and began firing at the shuttle.

Ramjet drove right into Skyfall's blaster fire, the hail of red darts singing and pitting the cowling around his air intakes.

"Didn'tcha learn your lesson the last time, short stuff?"

The seeker's lasers fizzled into subspace, his cluster bomb launchers appearing in their place. The launchers fired, and the bombs streaked away towards Skyfall with tongues of flame trailing behind them. The projectiles starbursted into a cloud of smaller explosives as they neared the target, filling the sky with a rain of death.

For his part, Ramjet throttled up and aimed his nosecone straight at the oncoming Micromaster.

Brave Maximus
2005-06-09, 07:56 AM
Everyone out of the shuttle!

Skyfalls message boomed inside the Omega Shuttle and the three Minicons knew what was going on. They quickly vacated the shuttle, transforming into vehicle mode and flying through the air. Nemesis came up behind Ramjet and fired a plasma blast at Ramjets engines.

At the same time, Skyfall was trying very hard not to die. He transformed into Robot mode and threw his thrusters forward to stop himself and buy a few more seconds from the clusterbombs. He fired off a few blaster rounds at them, causing a very impressive rippling effect. Unfortunatly, there was no way he could avoid Ramjet. While it didn't hit his main body, Ramjet's nosecone hits the back wing section, peeling it back with a massive wrenching sound, Skyfall winced in pain.....
*******************

Artfire and Stepper hit the ground and looked around the battlefield:

"Combiner?" Asked Stepper

"Combiner." nodded Artfire and the two Target masters were off, running across the field. Artfire dropped to his knee and brought up his Target Master sniper rifle, aiming for Predakings head. He fired a rail gun slug, aimed right between teh optics of the orange brute.

Stepper had all three weapons out and aimed them the connection point between Razorclaw and Tantrum - firing 2 fire balls of 5000 degree flame and a stream of 10,000 degree napalm at the combiner point. He kept an eye out for Cryotek as he did this though....

Nemesis' shot tore a chunk out of Ramjet's port-rear thruster assembly. A gout of flame belched from the engine, flooding the airspace behind him for a second before he managed to secure the damage.

As his nosecone tore into Skyfall, the seeker vectored upwards, hoping to pull a complete loop and strafe the Micromaster with his lasers on the return pass.

Brave Maximus
2005-06-09, 08:31 AM
Nemesis saw the flame gout coming at him, but there wasn't anything to do - he couldn't turn in time, nor could he stop - he was designed for space combat, and his thrusters just weren't fast enough for this in an atmosphere. He prepaired for the pain and closed his sensors off for a second.... but the pain didn't come! When his sensors came online again, Ark was floating below him, extending his Energon shield around his brother - in the back ground, Starlight was smiling in the back of their heads...


Skyfall knew second chances like the one he was given don't happen too often. Ramjet was pulling away from him and had given him a moment to react - and Skyfall had only one thing to say:

"HEAD ON!"

The Omega Shuttle shifted form, from shuttle to Robot mode. While Skyfall flew around and changed into a head. Just before he connected, the fear of connection surged through his brain, but with a combiner on the field and Ramjet doing as much damage as he did, there was no other choice.

All the doubt left when he connected with the Omega though - that surge of confidnece that came with the presence inside changed him, and all he saw was the enemy....

Cryotek quickly brought up a wall of ice between him and the cluster missiles.

"Bloody slag, stupid, stupid Autobots." He growled and fired on the two targetmasters firing at Predaking.

"You idoits should realise if you bring down Cyclonus the released radioactivity that kill the local humans you care so much about will be on your heads." He growled wondering if the Autobots really cared about the humans as much as the claimed too.

"Besides, even your idoitic leader Optimus Prime would be smart enough to let us go rather than risk a massive loss of life." He snarled.

Brave Maximus
2005-06-09, 07:29 PM
Skyfall Omega hit the ground with a sneer on his face - even his face plate did nothing to hide the utter contempt he had for these Decepticons. The one side of his head was distorted - it had been his wing in Robot mode - the one that Ramjet had hit, and he was in a bad mood. He looked up at Cryotek:

"Let you GO!?!" Skyfall Omega spat. "You have endangered human lives, risked the very land to steal that material. I will not fire on Cyclonus, I will rip the nuclear material from his very frame!

"But first, Decepticon, your fate is sealed.... PLANET CRUSH!"

The giant battle Axe formed in the massive Autobot warriors hands. He charged at the hovering dragon-transformer, his foot and back thrusters igniting and providing massive thrust. The axe skidded across the ground, static electricity cracking around it's double blades - when he reached Cryotek, he launched up, swinging the axe in a massive arc, attempting to cleave the Decepticon from stem to sternum....
***************************

Stepper didn't even notice right off the bat when his foot froze into place with Cryotek's blast, He continued to unlease fire and pain on Predaking. Artfire on the other hand, dodged and rolled, coming up with his weapon drawn. He would have taken aim at the Blue Decepticon, if Skyfall Omega wasn't charging in to take care of the Problem.

Cyclonus would have frowned had he been in robot mode.

" If you think I will endanger my mission by letting you near me then you are mistaken Autobot " Cyclonus snarled

" Triggerhappy, with me " he ordered " The rest of you are occupy these fools for a short while only "

With that Cyclonus hit the boosters and streaked away followed by Triggerhappy.

The machines were hard at work fabricating the human/cybertronian alloy curving it, tempering it. The design was going to be sleeker. Also standing against the furthest wall was a team of about one hundred workers. Welders, architects, electricians, engineers, labourerers. All were following the new blue-print for the Grimreaper frame.

Lazarus looked onward from an operations office above the factory. He watched intently as the skilled workers from all over the world did what they did best. Behind him was a table with the require blue prints. One was the original schematics for Sunstreaker that he managed to aquire during his original movement with Transformers. The new ones were different. They could not aquire the parts for the Lambourghini so they were forced to settle for a Dodge Viper. This meant the reconstruction would probably take longer, since they had to come up with a new blue print to accomodate transformation changes.

"Does it go well?" Yefremov asked as he pushed the door open, the noise of the machinery getting into the normally sound-proof room. Lazarus turned around slightly surprised but he quickly settled and nodded.

"You assembled a quick learning team. They are using tools and devices that most of them have never seen and working at an amazing pace." Lazarus said softly as he turned around to watch them work again.

"They were the best money could buy from all over the world. Two crews, this will be worked on night and day until it is done!" Yefremov spoke excitedly as he walked up beside Lazarus and put his hands behind his back standing at attention. "When this 'Grimreaper' is done," Yefremove still spoke the name Lazarus had given with a slight bit of sarcasm, "I shall be the most powerful man in Russia."

"Only Russia?" Lazarus asked with a small half-smile as he watched four of the labourers help install one of the new joints inside the ankle.

Yefremov grinned sheepishly, by now he had accepted with the power he was being given, Russia was far too modest. "Only Russia to start. The world won't fall totally under the Iron Curtain right away."

Lazarus nodded as he eyed the work on the upper body. It was being enforced with the first peices of the human-cybertronian compound. "These workers are moving amazingly fast. They have already begun to re-assemble his internal circuitry, and the skeletal frame is almost complete. They will begin fabricating the new parts for the transformation within days. We are amazingly ahead of schedual." Lazarus spoke quickly finally turning away from the window and walking to the table and looking down at the blue prints. "We could be ready a lot sooner than planned."

"Don't get to hasty. It will still be atleast a month, besides something could go wrong."

"No Fedor, nothing will go wrong. We will control this world very soon!" Lazarus was getting excited with this prospect.

"Whatever you say, comrade. I must go to my office in town. There is urgent business awaiting me there. I will be back later." Yefremov pushed off back to the door pushing it open again. The room filled with the sound of machinery again, Lazarus ignored it this time focusing on the blue-prints muttering to himself.

Cryotek smiled evilily and brought his spark extractor online. He quickly dodged to the side and drove his tail into Skyfalls frame *Given his massive size I would figure this would work.*

"No fool, you will let us go or I will tear your spark from this very reality and send you to the Inferno for your useless spark to burn for all time." He growled coldly.

" Maybe, I think we should try illusions of us first" Carnivac said as he made sure he was hidden behind a building "They expect us to be here, besides we don't want our egobots to call in more of their playmates...Even if they are vanity's creations, they might call for back up if they think their out numbered."

Predaking saw the massive autobot form. He looked at the autobots and felt the various blasts and started to fell his armor weaken. He glanced towards Artfire and Stepper and let off a volley of mortor missles at the small autobots. He then flew towards Skyfall Omega and got his sword out and tried to defend the blue Cryotek

" a good point about the seekers don't want even more autoscum to fight , but the fake squishies in peril should still work if device can generate two illusions. As familiar you are with it will let you operate it friend."

Ramjet completed his loop and came in for a strafing run on Skyfall...only to see the Micromaster transform into a head and connect with that shuttle of his.

"That's a new move. Preds'll still shred him, though."

With a mental shrug, he adjusted his angle of descent to point his nosecone towards Artfire. Falling into a random zigzag pattern to avoid return fire, he cut loose on the Autobot warrior with his laser cannons. Crimson bolts of energy rained down all around the red-and-white fire engine.

OOC: Right, So Predaking has taken a constant barrage of Heavy flames to the body, as well as a SNIPER ROUND TO THE HEAD and is walking away from his attackers?

2nd: Rav. That was a deffinate hit to Skyfall Omega - Be more careful with that in the future ;)

Vermont

Skyfall Omega felt the tail enter his chest through a weak part in his armour. He looked at Cryotek with optics of pure anger. At the same time, blue energy crackled to the intruder massive surges from an strange source:

"Grave Mistake: I am a Headmaster. Your tail is in my Transector - no Spark there, you missed that by a good twelve feet!"

With Cryotek so close Skyfall Omega reached out with his left hand to grab the Decepticon by his throat, while the Planet Crush axe decended on the Decepticon's tail.
**********************

Artfire and Stepper looked at each other as the moarters exploded around them. Artfire dodged out of the way, while Stepper tried, but only fell sideways, his leg frozen. Stepper reached down, adjusted his pistol and fired a small fireball at his leg, trying to unfreeze it. With in a second his leg was thawed and the next second it was starting to heat up....

"OOOWWW!" Cried Stepper, accompanied by him jumping back.

Artfire came up and started to spray his leg with a jet of CO2, cooling the leg.

"Well, that wasn't bright." Commented the Sniper

"Got the job done, didn't it?" retorted Stepper "Now, I'm going back to roast the Orange Meanace some more."

"I'll see if I can find Ramjet and help the Mini's - Scream if you get into trouble....." The two nodded at each other and split.

Stepper ran up behind Predaking and continued his birrage of Flame and pain against the behemoth.

Artfire looped back and stared into the sky, trying to pinpoint where Ramjet had gone. It didn't take him long though, as the conehead seeker came down upon him with a vengence.

Artfire dodged the strafing run, just barely and came up on one knee - he aimed as best he could, swearing under his about the zig-zagging of the jet, and fired off a round at the jet.

Ramjet banked to port quickly, putting himself out of line with Artfire's rail gun. He muttered a Cybertronian curse under his breath, then replaced his lasers with his cluster bomb launchers and fired two rounds off at the Autobot sniper. They starbursted about halfway to the target, raining explosive charges down around the Autobot.

Dodge that, ya slagheap!

OOC- Actually Brave, I knew it was *I know big risk* but it did do what I wanted it too :) Plus you were cool about so I will RP accordingly :) Oh and check you PM.

Cryotek's tail crackled with blue energy flowing into it. Though his attack failed it did by time, the importpart part of Cryotek's gambit. But the wait the energy he was absorbing made Cryotek feel different, better, stronger....

Hmm, I think I will need to find more headmasters to try this on. he thought to himself but then saw the tail coming down at him.

Cryotek jumped back but not quite fast enough as the axe cut into his tail. Thankfully missing his major super structure but having a limp lobbed off still well hurt, lots.

Cryotek would have screamed in pain but instead he laughed and grabbed the cleaved portion of his tail. Cryo flew overhead making sure his master was ok. Cryotek transformed into his jet mode but held his tail with on hand.

"Predacons, Atlas and remain Decepticons. Cyclonus, is away. We should make our leave now as well!" With that Cryotek kicked in his afterburners laughing all the way.

OOC: No worries Rav. Just, If I get in trouble for it, I spread the love.... ;) Oh, and well, the blue energy wasn't ment to be a good thing - and Skyfall's transector is... different.

Skyfall watched the Decepticon limp away, and reached up to his chest, pulling out the claw. He was about to cast it away, when he noticed that something was odd about it and decided to subspace it instead.

He fired 2 cluster missiles at Cryotek, and turned to find a Cyclonus before the missiles had a chance to split into 8.
**************************

Artfire watched as the cluster missiles flew at him. His mind worked, looking for a way to survive. He retracted his left hand and a missile took it's place. He fired it into the group of cluster bombs and it exloded just before reaching them, expanding into fire retardant foam. While it wouldn't stop the bombs, it did slow their speed and alter their tragetory a bit.

What it did was buy the target master a few moments to get away from the core of the explosion. While the bombs didn't drop directly on him, he was engulfed in the flames from the explosion....
******************

In the air, Nemesis' cannon had fully charged again, and with Ark flying beside him, he fired a shot at Ramjet, as he pulled up from releasing the cluster bombs at Artfire. At the same time, Starlight was circling around, trying to position herself to catch Ramjet....

Predaking's body was a complete mess. The Targetmasters had taken the punishment of his body to a new level. He could survive another round if ...

Systems Warning: Superstructure collapsing. Entry unit = Divebomb, Entry Unit = Tantrum, connection lost. Backup systems Initialling.

Predaking hoped that his systems would be able to hold himself together during this process as he began to fly away as Cyrotek gave the order.

System's Report: Stabilization port C -38 critical pressure. Advised caution to unit structure. Entry Unit = Razorclaw, membrane causing destabilizing. System failure inevitable.

With that Predaking broke into his 5 components. It wasn't a pretty sight. Headstrong landed on his knee and drew out his blaster to give some cover fire to his comrades. Rampage picked up Tantrum and Razorclaw picked up Divebomb. Tantrum needed serious repairs and Divebomb has been badly damaged. But what Razorclaw feared most was what he remembers last as Predaking.

System Failure inevitable.

Predaking Module Disabled.

Taking the illusion maker from Weirdwolf, Carnivac started to press the buttons that covered the device in a random order. A short time later, Carivac let the device scan both Weirdwolf and the pretender shell, then went back to programing it.

When he was done, Carnivac said " All we have to do now is turn it on and hope it doesn't explode on us."
