Vector sigma, a small suburban city state with a high number of Temples to the Light God Primus.
That is prior to the Invasion: Now, most of the Protorphanages are ruined, and the homesteads levelled. Mutants roam the streets, driven from Subterrenea by the rise in technorganic populace in the tunnels.
To the North East, the Mercury River Semaht.
To the North, a sparlsely populated Quintesson garrison (compliment of 50 units), mostly a token gesture made prior to the discovery of the Super Computers existence.
To the East, a small nest of varied technorganics (7).
To the Southwest, the largest tribe of Mutants (nearly 20), Banded under the one Banner they could find: as such, they called Primus's Children.
And to the Far south... The Main Tunnel entrance to the Super Computer, Vector Sigma itself.

Below...
Hidden within Labrynthine tunnels, The Chamber within the Hidden Temple. The golden orb that is Vector Sigma, enigmatic and misunderstood. Around it, the chamber is littered with the Corpses of Overcharge units, resistance fighters, and massive damage from a titanic battle.
And directly before it, warming in its rays, is the Largest Technorganic from the Tunnels. She is Shelob: a hulking, cracked ball hefted aloft by a mass of limbs, each ending in a tool of destruction or death. She is shelob, and she came here for a reason.
She shudders, and a dark, moist metal egg hits the floor with the noise of rotten peach hitting concrete. It is ushered to one side, along with many, many others...

(OOC: VS doesn't do maps. Unless any one out there wants to give it a shot, and submits the article to a mod... :) )

Genome watched Eiramnna and Tunnel Rat move to lead the crew the remaining short distance to the supercomputer's chamber with satisfaction. He gave Ghyrik a passing neutral nod, and his circle of protection slowly lumbered forward to follow their pointmen on the last leg of the trek.

Derby glanced back and forth among the arguing as tensions grew, and finally he watched Ginrai storm out with a torn expression on his face. But he stifled it quickly - better to have too many courses of action than none, he rationalized. Derby forced a smile and sheathed his blaster, deciding to lighten the mood.

"So, uh... who needs a quick tune-up before we go win the war, fellas?"

Sonic Canyons

Countdown's speedy shuttle rocketed over the Semaht as it came down within a few kilometers of the ground. The Quintesson station located along the river's west bank had been put on alert and were prepared with anti-aircraft weapons for Countdown's arrival, but their fire wasn't quick enough to keep pace. The shuttle deployed its side cannons and took a few potshots as it soared past, demolishing one of the turrets and vaporizing a Sharkticon barrack. In hardly another moment, the shuttle was reoriented and touched down in a clearing in the depths of the Sonic Canyons, just north of the main entrance to the Vector Sigma tunnel system.

"We have touchdown," Countdown yelled back into the cabin. He stood and climbed down out of the cockpit, working a control console at the base of the ladder to open the main hatch and deploy his launchpad. "Hatch is open, ramp is down. Ready to deploy at your command, Hatemonger. My command center will be equipped to keep reinforcements off your back. I think I hit that Quint garrison pretty hard."

"Very good Countdown cover us as best as you can." Hatemonger said standing up and almost running to the ramp.

"Alliance Forces, let's go retake our home. Flyers keep the area clear. Devcon try to find the resistance forces or at least some better intel on the tunnels around here." He said waiting for the rest of his men to get to the ramp.

Blackstar listened to Ginrai and almost laughed.

"I don't exactly care about this so called power you have as a "Godmaster"." The Decepticon starfighter said looking at the Autobot his own optics burning.

"You need all of us to retake VS and I know your an Autobot so you won't be stupid enough to blow your most scared landmark sky high. Then again I could be wrong and given your temper I may very well be." The targetmaster growled. He then continued his optics staring into Ginrai's.

"So go ahead and drive go fight use this power of yours to try to send as many Quints to the pit as you can. But considering how Cybertron still fell even with you here tells me you need all of our help one last time. If you want to go and fight then go ahead but do it with the rest of us were we might have a chance of retaking our home!" Blackstar yelled letting his own emotions follow through.

Greatshot and Roughstuff scrambled to the foot of Countdown's landing gear, then sprung to the sky, low to evade AA fire but high enough to still put some covering fire ahead of their position and enough to make sure no sharkticons in the area could flank the landing force's position.

------------------------------------------

Snapdragon stepped to the edge just behind his fellow flyers, but hesitated and looked to Hatemonger, "hey boss, you want me up or leading this shindig south to the tunnels?"

"There are enough of us."

Spinister stepped from concealment directly behind Doublecross, allowing the tip of his laser rifle to brush against the back of the Monsterbot's neck as he moved.

"One Mayhem is a terrifying force to be reckoned with." Although the Targetmaster didn't serve on active duty with the Decepticons' elite commando squad anymore, he was justifiably proud of it. After all, they had been his command once, before he moved on to greater things and left the squad in Bludgeon's ultra-capable hands.

With a shrug, he added, "And your Wreckers are rather formidable as well. You should count yourself lucky to have even one. But as it happens, you have three of each."

He glanced at Showboats remains

He surveyed the gathered crowd.

"Vector Sigma all very well but why aren't we targetting something of real importance a sector command hub or a power station instead of going for a propaganda victory we've bothe survived without is since we were kicked off this rustball, i say take out there power supply and everything else falls into our paws."

Shelob wasn't as well as she had planned to be: the fight with the Fiery Red one had wounded her greatly... and the green giants that had followed had been more than a distraction.
Around her, still twitching remains of the Proto Guardians were strewn: above her, stapped to the ceiling with her Steel/Glue web, was one left alive and undamaged, except for the missing arms: food for her babies, once they hatched...

Eiramnna looked to his compatriot as they led the small troop down the dark tunnel.
"Tunnel Rat, have you been here before? You seem familiar with the tunnels network."
He also picked up the pace, on order from his General.

as ginrai roared through the lower levels of the access-pathway, his thoughts began to wander... grow muddled. the rage in blackstar's voice sickened him. what did he know of loss? truly? his homeworld was still here to be reclaimed... HIS cybertron had been destroyed by a megalomaniacal abomination that was known as galvatron... a monster fueled by rage, devoid of true logic, willing to sacrifice his entire army for his victory. and sacrifice, he had. Cybertron istelf had paid the price.

Ginrai's weaponry began to whir, bringing itself to a forward pointing position... and on his infrared, his sensors saw the sillouette of what may well be quintesson warriors.

"Company. Wonderful."

kicking his throttle into high-gear, the godmaster began to roar down the tunnel access-way, planning to blow through the group... if he could at least reach the core chamber.... but what of that techno-organic he'd been unable to finish off?

The Tribe had gone on the move: they had been scared when the fist signs of the great space battle had shown themselves, and fearing the worst, they had run into the Tunnels that were once their home, preferring to face the unknown than the certain destruction of further war.
Jackhammer lead the 8 strong group, alongside Slayride. The pair of them, as well as Smeltdown, had found the refugees after their gang had been decimated by an unknown transformer. The three of them had found them cowering in the remains of a protorphange: they had taken them to safe ground, nurtured them. Then they started “Training,” where who ever couldn’t prove to be even half worthy of staying in the gang had been killed and recycled.
Smeltdown called in from behind: he and the others were in Garbage, the only one of them who could transform, and who was transporting the least able of the group.
Jackhammer, Wreckage says he can ‘Read’ an approaching transformer: some one powerful.”
“Understood.”
Jackhammer turned to the rest of the group and ordered them to fan out, some staying with him and slay ride, the others flanking into the shadows of the tunnel: Garbage was some distance behind, so reinforcements were a way off. They prepared to meet the oncoming storm, unaware of just whom they would face.

Skids, loaded with datapads, exited Countdown and moved to Hatemonger's side. He approved the deployment of the flyers, and looked towards the Decepticon General.

" Sir, Siren will probably be our best scout for the ground forces. I suggest he take the lead to guide us to the best entrance to the inner tunnels - from a mine entrance, for example -. Then ", he looked at Snapdragon " the more suited close combat warriors could take the lead. "

"Say when and point the way" Snapdragon proclaimed, Energon filling his system in a manner that tingled, yet brought all his nerves to a point of concentration.

Hatemonger transformed into his tank mode and roared along.

"No I take point." He said wanting to cover his men.

"Snapdragon, and Fangry, beside me. Sunstreaker, Sideswipe, Nightbeat, Hosehead and Skids watch the sides. Siren and Devcon keep an optic out for anything that maybe helpful too us. Roughstuff, Greatshot, Ramjet and Thrust, keep us covered from the skies." Hatemonger said rolling slowly his systems scanning for anything that was not transformer.

Although he knew better than to say anything, Spinister couldn't help but share Roadbuster's sentiment. Bugly had always been more trouble than he had been worth, and he for one wouldn't shed a tear at the mystic's demise.

"If I wanted to put you out of commission," he told Doublecross flatly, "I would have shot you in both heads before you knew I was here."

Paying the supply officer no more mind, he took a few steps into the room before catching sight of Haras. He resisted the urge to shoot the Quintesson soldier on sight, instead asking, "Shall I assume you have a good reason for keeping one of the enemy in good eavesdropping range?"

Ghyrik began to grow impatient. He very much wanted their journey to be over so that he could attend to the business that had brought him here.

At that thought, his eyes tracked over to watch Genome's progress. For a millisecond, unveiled malice gleamed in his eyes.

Genome and his entourage trudged along steadily, the scientist regularly checking his electromap and largely oblivious to the machinations going on about him. He was solely focused on the task he needed to soon undertake.

Jazz stepped to the front of the stage and hopped off into the aisles.

"If the Quints can do with Sigma what we can," he answered Pounce, "then we gotta get 'er back."

Derby's optics turned toward Spinister somewhat timidly. He was used to the dark and brooding sort by now, but this guy just plain creeped him out.

"He's a prisoner," Derby replied. "We picked him up after the battle at Vector Sigma and brought him back here for repairs."

Derby walked over to Haras and kneeled, doing the best he could to check the Quintesson's unfamiliar vitals and see about reviving him. He really wanted to figure out what had happened to him before they went off to save the world...

Skids frowned when Hatemonger rejected his tactical suggestion, but he didn't say anything. Instead, he occupied his position on the General's right flank.

Then Skids started to distract himself, once again.

" I don't agree with his tactical deployment, but he's the General. Maybe my suggestion wasn't a good one; let's check my files...

Accesing Tactical File TG1 S2: Squads Tactics: The Squad Column or File.

The column is the basic movement formation for military units.

The column or file involves getting all personnel in a formation in the situation of following behind the man ahead of him in the formation.

This is accomplished very simply by giving the command "Right Face" while the squad is in the facing-to-the-front squad rank formation.

All facing commands are two-part commands. That is, there is a preparatory command alerting the formation, to which direction it will be turning, then a command of execution telling the formation to execute the command.

For the movement Right Face, the preparatory command is "Right....", followed by the execution command "Face."

Upon hearing the preparatory command "Right....", the soldier prepares to pivot on his right heel and left toes by slightly lifting his right toes and left heel.

At the execution command "Face", the soldier swivels on his right heel and left toes, through a 90-degree (right) angle to his right. Immediately upon achieving this quarter-circle movement, the soldier brings his left heel up level with and in contact with his right heel in a smart that is smart, movement.

The former rank, with all soldiers facing to the front, has been converted into a column or file, with all soldiers in line behind their formation precedents. The column or columns may now be given the "Forward March" command, putting the formation into motion.

... "

Skids shaked his head.

" Naaa, wrong file " he muttered, loading a new tactic file.

Repairing one's enemies seemed counterintuitive, but Spinister decided to assume that the Resistance knew what it was doing. Although, naturally, he was more than prepared to kill the Quintesson prisoner if the need arose.

"I suggest you secure him," the Targetmaster told Derby.

Striding away, he addressed Pounce. "The Autobot is right. If the Quintessons learn how to access the more...exotic functions of Vector Sigma, they could create an army of troops more than capable of destroying us."

Spinister didn't add that the new troops would most likely turn on their masters afterwords. Poetic justice though it would be, he and the rest of the Transformers would have been far too dead to appreciate it.

Hatemonger rolled carefully his systems scanning for anything that could be an enemy.

"Siren and Devcon, take the lead and see if you can spot anything. Fangry, Snapdragon and myself will cover you. Everyone else stay behind us and be ready watch the flanks and the rear." Hatemonger said in his com to each of the warriors com-links.

Eiaramnna threw his hand up in a clench to warn the rest of the party to pause: he signalled Tunnel Rat to be quiet and follow, as they had reached the entrance to the Main Entrance to Vector Sigma.
Eiramnna stepped forward cautiously and made his way through the wreckage...

Shelob had finished laying her eggs, and was inspecting the captured Proto Guardian snared in the webbing on the ceiling. It would make good fodder for her children.

... Eiramnna turned back to Tunnel rat from seeing this, and shook his head with wide eyes. He made the sign saying they should get back.

Haras stirred fro Derbys attempts, and eventually woke. He sat up cautiously and looked around the room slowly, his eyes taking everyone in.

" Huh? " said Skids, turning his head to look at Chainclaw. The Tactician Director was still distracted in his thoughts about tactics, daydreaming even in the dawn of battle.

Hatemonger rolled slowly his turrets following any horizon lines he could see.

"Things could get nasty though I almost suspect we will see more resistance in the tunnels." He said to Snapdragon.

"Keep your optics open." He said.

He then got onto his com-link.

"Chainclaw keep an eye open for any baddies." Hatemonger said figuring the paranoid Autobot would be decent at finding any enemy forces that were around.

Jazz shrugged at Pounce.

"They mighta a'ready. Ain't gonna know till we get there an' have a look."

Derby was pleased that Spinister had turned his attention to someone else, but he found himself distracted again when Haras spoke. It was still an unnerving experience - he sounded much more cognizant now than he had over the radio.

"We're going to reclaim Vector Sigma," Derby told the Quintesson softly, extending a hand to help him up. He didn't mention that he wasn't sure how they would do it. With the Wreckers behind them, it seemed a foregone fact. He decided to change the subject and asked with genuine interest, "How are you feeling?"

"An excellent idea," Spinister agreed with Scoop. "If the Quintessons and techno-organics are both still there, they will be preoccupied with each other. He might be able to get the drop on both."

Without turning, he addressed Roadbuster. "We seem to be ready."

Eiramnna looked at his commanding officers with cold eyes. He turned to Tunnel Rat:
"Here: Last time I fought this thing, I had to use my whit phosphorous grenades to blind it. If I can distract it the same way, you take these," he handed Tunnelrat a belt of Frag Grenades from his dispensor, "And follow up with a barrage. Then these guys follow." He finished the comment by indicating the scores of Overcharge units and Genomes homour guard.
He tried desperately to stealthily move forward into the chamber...

Shelob was busy: the Protoguardian she had captured was dividing into portions well. She was biting off small chunks of the guardian, and spitting them in the direction of her eggs.
Shelob was having to take too much time: the Fiery one, Ginrai, had damged her eyes badly. His punch to her face had been all too effectively, and she was stuck needing to work fast and needing to be accurate. She was too distracted then, too hear much of anything.

Haras looked at Derby. He seemed to digest what he had been told many times over.
"You will have a hard time of it." Was all he could say, as he stood shakily.

Tunnels... Smackdown!
Jackhammer saw Ginrais truck form approach, and steadied himself against the ground, his head lowered, ready to spring just as the truck made contact:
Slayride hovered over to the left, and ordered the team:
"Trash, Remain: get ready to fire once he's in range:

Genome watched Eiramnna and Tunnel Rat slink into the main chamber with irritation evident on his face. There was little logic in their maneuvers, and truly they were just wasting time. But Genome decided to let them - it may make Shelob more approachable if she was busy devouring the two escorts. Genome pulled his EMP generator from his pacification kit and waited while his guards parted and prepared for battle...

"Naw, don' worry 'bout it, Jack," Jazz answered Doublecross and following Roadbuster back out into the tunnels. "We come prepared."

Derby transformed cautiously into his truck mode, though it honestly hadn't hurt nearly as much as before. His repair systems had been exponentially faster since they'd had time to regenerate themselves. Once again he dropped his tailgate and backed up toward Haras.

Haras nodded, looking as if that was all the explanation one might want. He stepped into Derbys trailer.

"Derby, am i still considered a prisoner?"

Shelob was still working on the remains of the protoguardian, foisted wet chunks to her dark, glistening eggs by the wall.
Eiramnna pump was working overtime, the rush of oil audible in his head.
He looked to Tunnel rat, and smiled wryly.
This could be the end.
Eiramnna stood, and shouted at the top of his voice, a string of gibberish and guttural slurs. As the giant spider turned, he slung his belt of White phosphorous grenades at her face, the grenades glinting in the light of vector sigma:
Shelob was taken by surprise most effectively. She had begun to charge the small, insignificant individual when the belt hit her face and erupted in a blinding flash of White light and liquid fire. She squealed, and continued her bull charge at the stormtrooper...

Countdown's launch pad had just finished transforming to its command center mode when he received Hatemonger's query.

"Dual de-kineto blasters and eight laser cannon emplacements, as well as my own personal blasters," he answered. "I can hold my own if I need to, sir."

(OOC: If you're still waiting on anybody, Rav, you may as well get moving. They can catch up if they want, or they can chill with Countdown.)

Derby closed his hatch behind Haras and switched into gear to lag behind the others.

"Well, that depends," the speakers in his bed answered the Quintesson while he rolled. He didn't want them hearing. "I don't think the others trust you yet, but we need all the help we can get taking out that thing. If you help us kill it - or at least try - I think we can call it even."

Derby paused to think on the prospect. He wasn't sure even he trusted Haras yet, but the sincerity in the newfound Quintesson's voice was more real than anything he'd heard from an enemy since Cybertron had been taken.

"So what happened back there?" Derby's speakers asked. "When Ginrai fixed you, I mean. You really had me scared."

Ahead, Jazz cruised along not far behind Roadbuster, suppressing his nervousness about the coming battle. He kept reminding himself he'd killed bigger monsters than this, but it was hard to be sure not having seen the prey yet...

"Enough of this," Genome snapped.

With practiced precision, the scientist's honor guard flanked to come into the edges of the chamber's opening and fired pitifully on the massive Shelob. Between them, Genome pulled his EMP generator from his pacification kit, aimed it vaguely and courageously in the transorganic's direction, and activated it. He knew Shelob well - an EMP would shut down her mechanical appendages and render her immobile for a short time. He cared not that Tunnel Rat may have been in his way enough to feel the effects of the EMP as well.

Spinister hovered above the rest of the team, his rotor blades whirling silently. As the other, lesser members of the team nattered amongst themselves, the Targetmaster took the opportunity to check the charge on his particle beam cannons. Finding them at 100%, he did the same for his fusion bomb launchers. They were likewise fully functional, but he hoped he wouldn't have to use them. Deploying nuclear weapons in the confined space of Vector Sigma would certainly kill the techno-organic monster that awaited them, but it would also vapourize most of their team.

If it needs to be done, it needs to be done, he told himself. If we do our jobs, it won't come to that.

Ghyrik's path brought him within striking distance of Genome as the scientist was fiddling with his toys, but had the presence of mind to wait until the EMP was triggered before he did anything.

"Goodbye, Genome," he said with quiet malice. "The rest of your science directorate will join you in death very soon now."

Sonic canyons
The Vector Sigma Garrison had seen the enemies approach from the skys long before they had landed: they were an outpost almost forgotten, and denied action or purpose for too long. Their commanders, Onom and Roloc Executioners, had ignored the chain of authority, and mustered their eager soldiers to war.
The Canyons were well known to them by now, and they had been stealthy in the extreme. They had made their way to the arrogant tranformers, and now lay in wait, waiting for one word from either commander.

Onom raised his communication device to his lips, and with a tremor of excitment, almost whispered:
"Now. "

The Quintesson forces erupted from their hiding places: avenues and tunnels in the canyons, shelves and lips concealing them from view: they gave no roar of attack, merely moving with the barely contained zeal.

Onoms 12 man team raced to Hatemongers group, supported by two tanks with guards:

On high shelves, two mobile attack platforms began firing at Countdowns command centre, whilst the last two tanks with guards moved toward it from the rear.

In the skys, 4 3 man teams of jet bikes roared into life, zeroing in on the airborne Greatshot and Roughstuff

Roloc mean while, held his 12 man team in reserve, waiting for the command for support, biting his leap hard enough to draw oil. He could see a second group, but waited for the order to attack from his brother.

(OOC I will be posting the army list in Discussions tonight, so this shouldn't get confusing... I hope...)

Vector Sigma Tunnels
Trash and Remain, perhaps the best soldiers of the gang, were atomised by the blasts coming from Ginrai:
Jackhammer had accelerated forward , head lowered... and his last thought was simply Wow! as his high armoured cranium collided with the grill of Ginrais truck; the leader of the gang found himself being dragged / pushed forward, with his lower body and Tank tread getting caught under Ginrais wheels.
Waste, giggling and chittering like a hyena, sailed through the air aimed at the roof of Ginrais cab, having been slung with full force by Junk.

Slayride looked to his compatriots that were still with him, and got on the blower fast:
"Smeltdown, have garbage put the pedal to the metal: you guys are needed Bad!"

Vector Sigma:
Shelob felt the Grenades from Tunnel rat land in her mouth, and actually staggered as they went off: her charge was interrupted, and she smashed into the wall by the two enemies before her now.
As the White phosphorous faded and the smoke from the frags cleared, she raised herself, barely damaged, up on her many hind legs, head extended and fore legs whirring into action with a hundredd tools of death... when Genomes EMP blast caught her.
Organs struggled with non working meachanics: engines were flooded with bloodoil as pistons refused to work.
She fell down, a second time, a red haze across her vision...

Showboats theatre... leaving?
Haras shuddered. The memory of the moment were all too fresh.
"I- I don't know," he replied to Derby: "It's like. It's like, when you feel your hand go from being numb from the cold to feeling again. Except it was the whole of me. And, i hadn't felt cold till after Ginrai had- done what he'd done.
He mentioned something about Sparks when I was shrieking. He said i had been connected to my spark. Whats a spark?"

Suddenly all Chainclaws worries vanished a red mist descended across his optics and he let out a terrible roar.

Jazz rolled down his driver-side window, and his Pretender shell leaned out with a shrug.

"Nothin' much," it answered Pounce. "I been all over th'inside a' Cybertron, but I never run into 'em often. All I know's they big 'n' ugly suckas."

Behind, Derby listened to Haras testimony with serious interest. He really was trying to be a better medic, and understanding the nature of life itself was one of the greatest hurdles he'd encountered.

"Gosh, it's hard to say exactly," Derby's speakers replied. "It's like - it's the thing that makes you you, y'know? No, I guess you wouldn't... Sorry, I didn't mean it like that."

Derby paused to try again.

"A spark is like what separates us from droids. It's what makes us conscious and aware and able to rationalize and make our own decisions. That's why there are Autobots and Decepticons - we all have the same fundamental programming, but we're different because of how we choose to react to it."

He was no mystic, but he felt that was the best he could manage, given his limited knowledge.

There was no time for last words. Genome hadn't heard Ghyrik's dramatic forewarning over Shelob's titanic bellowing, though his hidden face had caught a glimpse of the charge over his collar just before the needle pierced his back and emerged from his chest. His metal tentacles stopped flicking at once, his hoverbeam died out, and the scientist collapsed on his shocked face, dead.

Genome's honor guard instantly sprang into action, ceasing fire on Shelob and instead surrounding their fallen chief. None knew the least thing about medicine though (though Genome had been a brilliant doctor, he hadn't shared his secrets), and all they could do was follow their programming: those facing Ghyrik opened fire wildly, mostly to keep the enemy at bay rather than to harm him.

Countdown had only managed to climb his squat command tower to the commander's station when fire began raining down on him from mesas in the canyon.

"Slag!" he shouted, slapping the laser cannons on auto before diving from the tower to find better cover. "Slaggit! Hatemonger, it's an ambush!"

Countdown threw himself into the main turret at the front of the station and rotated it to fire its dekineto cannons at the encroaching tanks while the laser cannons opened an inaccurate but intense volley toward the platforms.

Hatemonger heard "Ambush!" and reacted with a speed from eons of being a soilder and warrior.

His scanners quickly tracked for enemy targets as he fired a few blasts from his fusion cannons to try to scatter the enemy.

"Transformers, evasive manuvers. Fangry, Chainclaw, Sunstreaker work on snuffing the remaining warriors out of their hiding places. Skids, Siren, Nightbeat, Hosehead, Chromedome, Sideswipe take cover and return fire." Hatemonger said transforming back into his robot mode and bringing his firepower levels to bare onto the Quint forces.

He then continued to give orders.

"Roughstuff, Greatshot, Thrust and Ramjet, you have company up there be careful and take them out. Countdown what is the range on your weapons?" He asked "Can you help to cover us if Devcon or Siren were to give you a bead on the enemy?" He asked wondering if he could use the Autobot base as artilary support.

Finally he reported to Snapdragon.

"Well Snapdragon you got your wish. Destroy the enemy." He said figuring that should be enough to get the Decepticon Headmaster riled up.

Snapdragon raised himself up on his back legs and flashed his Carbon-tipped claws straight through two of Onom's squad, howling madly with glee and barely contained rage.

"This is it, boys, let's start the slaughter!"

He trudged towards another group of bots, eager to dish more Death.

--------------------------------------------------

Roughstuff and Greatshot arced into the sun overhead to distract the jet bikes view of their silhouttes, then split between a squad, lancing laser blasts at the jet bikes as the were blinded following them into the Sun.

They roared lower than they might've wished after such a hard dive and gave the cliffs a fly-by that could've shown decals to members on top of it.

Sideswipe asked Hatemonger sarcastically while raising his flare gun and aiming at the targetting platforms up above firing up a flare to scatter their sensors. He then dropped to a kneed and rolled behind a large peice of scrap.

Sunstreaker's optics locked in on one of the tunnels that a Quintesson hopped out of. "Fangry, Chainclaw, follow me and give me some fire support. I am going to sneak around and start closing up whatever holes these scum bags are crawling out of." Sunstreaker launched a electron pulse at one of the approaching Allicons before transforming.

Spinister scoffed at Derby's explanation. Lowering himself so that he was hovering a metre or so above the Autobot, he said, "Metaphysical nonsense.

Ginrai deactivated certain behavioural locks in the Quintesson's programming, nothing more."

Ghyrik snarled as Genome's guards opened fire on him. None of the wild shots found their mark, although a few came close enough to worry him.

"You fools!" the general shouted. "Attack the monster, not me! It's the one that killed your master!"

Ghyrik didn't particularly care if his lie bore fruit or not; as soon as Shelob was back on her feet the honour guard would have little choice but to turn their attention in that direction. And as soon as they did, Ghyrik himself would vacate the premises. He had important business to attend to back in Iacon.

Genome's estranged guards were thoroughly confounded by Ghyrik's ploy - on one hand, their mission was to protect the scientist and to thwart any threat to his safety. On the other, their secondary programming commanded them to obey the orders of a superior outside the caste they were guarding when one of theirs was not available to deliver orders.

It seemed Shelob was ready to make the decision for them when she began convulsing again. One of the Allicons near the front of the circle around Genome's body instinctively fired on the beast with its laser pistol, and the others followed suit as their simplistic group mentality dictated.

Derby's engine roared when Spinister began speaking, having been startled and popping his transmission into neutral by the silent helicopter's eerie appearance.

"That might be possible too," Derby conceded after a long moment to regain his composure. He lowered the volume on his bed's speakers in the hope the creepy Decepticon would have more difficulty eavesdropping. "I gotta be honest, I'm not really sure how it all works. There are a lot of different theories..."

Ramjet bristled at being ordered around by Hatemonger, but given the history between the general and the Seeker's usual superior that wasn't too much of a surprise. The chance to kill things was more than enough to trump his personal feelings, though.

He leaped into the air, transforming and blasting away from the ground almost before the general had finished giving his orders.

By the time the Wreckers had arrived, it was too late for Genome's honor guard. Shelob had made short work of them, and the few who remained in sizeable chunks were suspended from the ceiling in the transorganic's messy webbing. Genome's body laid undisturbed near the edge of the chamber, poisoned and probably not very tasty.

Combining his twin Targetmaster rifles to maximize the output of his laser rifle, he dropped into a crouch. But excellent cover nonetheless. Now if the creature would be kind enough to try and eat my colleagues, we'll see how it deals with sniper fire.

Still dazed and not entirely recovered from Tunnel Rat's grenades, Shelob staggered back with a terrible wail, struggling to shield herself from the sensory attack.

He frowned slightly at the site of no Quintessons and quickly jumped out of the hole only to be blind sided by at Quintesson shock-trooper. Sunstreaker smashed against a peice of debris in the canyon and shook his head to get his bearings. The shock trooper took another swing, but Sunstreaker caught his hand this time and twisted it around, flipping the shock trooper onto his back. Sunstreaker placed the air-compressor canon against the Quintesson's chest and fired, flattening it in a messy crush of air.

Sideswipe by now was airborne, but not happy with his lack of mobility in comparison. " 'Take to the air' he says." Sideswipe grumbled as two Quint jet bikes circled him like sharks would their prey.

Jackhammers mangled body parts clinked and splashed amid the rubble and pools of oil in the tunnel, and his over armoured head, undamaged but now seperate from any other part of his body, watched Ginrais assault on his gang continue...

Waste, who had been in the air when Ginrai had transformed and seperated, used his barbs and claws on one arm to latch himself to Godbomber: he used his other to start to slash at the armour plating.
Seeing this, Slayride shouted to the Mutant with the jet pack, Debris:
"Go and support Waste! Take that thing out!"

Meanwhile, Junk, the large wrestler of the team, either through bravery or ignorance, had leapt to confront the titan bearing down on them... and had the full blast of Ginrais cannons cut through him like butter, leaving him in two halves. The others, who were still rather stunned by Remains and Trash's demise, were taken by surprise as the beams cut through a third comrade, and scattered with little discipline: all except for Discard, a Mutant who bore a similarity to Frenzy: he ducked behind the wreckage of Remain, and began operating the complicated console on his chest.

Shelob stepped back in shock: she was exhausted from the battles she had suffered, more used to taking a few prey back to feed once every few days, prolonged combat and the exposure to the EMP weapon had left her in a severly disabled state: the light show from jazz she was filtering out as well as she had the flares from the first battle, but the assault on her hearing was nothing short of amazing.
In an attempt to gain an upper hand, she raised herself on her hindmost legs, raised all her remaining limbs with saws and cutters activated, and gave an almighty Bellow, hoping to give fright to her enemies and gain a pause in the assault.

Eiramnna, dazed, confused and his need for revenge dulled by terror, was standing amidst the beasts eggs next to Tunnel rat still, when Jazz's assault and Shelobs retort caused the room to shake: he fell to his knees and clutched his Audio receptors, trying desperately to shut them down.

Jazz was no coward, but he knew better than to be stupid with his life. Shelob's display of fury had sufficiently shown that she could land on him in an instant at his current vantage. He decided he'd do best to distract her while the main guns got into position, and so he used his new leg boosters to hop gracefully up to the rafters across the chamber from Spinister's position. Jazz fired his photon rifle down on the beast while moonwalking the beam to keep mobile.

Outside, Derby finally rolled up and transformed to robot mode, dropping Haras as carefully as he could.

"Listen, I'm gonna be blunt," he said while checking his pistol. "These guys might be Wreckers, but that thing is a terror. We need all the help we can get. If you fight with us, I'll convince the brass to give you your freedom. Please?"

Derby turned his pistol and held it out by the barrel, looking at Haras hopefully.

Onom saw the Transformer general raise his weapons to him, beckoning him to fight. he would normally have made some comment, perhaps give an order or command: but it had been too long for him, stuck in this back water, silent wasteland, p[opulated only by Mutants that ran, and Technorganics that hid: the fury and blood red glory of battle was too much for him, like water to a dehydrated man. He raised his weapons in return, and stormed through his fellow soldiers, bellowing intelligible remarks at Hatemonger.
Onoms guard were not gripped in half as red haze as their commander was: one was even wise enough to call the rear guard general, Roloc, with a report.

The point of armour at which Roadbuster and Bludgeon were aiming their fire was heating, buckling and cracking: Shelob turned wildly on to her front, so her rear was facing her enemies, the sniper fire from Spinister and Scoop going wild as she did so.
She was wounded, and unable to run. Her eggs were fresh hatched, and would not survive without her. She could neither fight well enough against this barrage of enemy fire, nor could she abandon her kin.
A last ditch effort against her cuning and skilled enemies, she opened soe of her rear carapace, and fired her moist webbing in as wide a spray as possible:

He addressed his own detachment of guards like a caeser:
"We will be engagin the enemy post haste, my soldiers: the rogue products are doing far better than first visualised. We will be supporting Onoms unit, or what remains of them. Go forth!"
With that, the detachment made their way through the canyons, marching with empty precision...

In the air
Most of the Jetbike squadron had been decimated by the superior fire power and skills of the Transformer forces, but the airborne transformers Roughstuff, Greatshot, Ramjet and Sideswipe were not alone in the skies.

The sounds of battle had drawn the attention of the denizens of the nest home to 7 fuzor technorganics, horrific mishmashes of creatures, who's only bond was insanity and hunger: as if timed, when the last sky biker fell to his doom, three fying technorganics cam over the horizon and attacked.
A Cheetle, Carapace open and wings buzzing, came up behind Sideswipe, spots glinting in the sun and fangs bared-
Roughstuff and Greatshot were targetted by a Wulturf, Mettalic feathered wings flapping with strength above the Lupine body as it descended from above-
And lastly, a Hawrillak, a gorrila with Hawk wings for arms and a hawk head, screeched and roared, divebombing at Thrust, as he watched the battle below him.

In the Canyons:
All hell was breaking loose, as the tanks battalions tried to gain an upper hand: Gatkeepers had fell around them, and the base Countdowns command centre was still so far away: One of the Gun platforms had been destroyed by the aerial forces, meaning that the remaining one wasn't drawing enough fire from them.

Meanwhile, Onoms troopers tried to ignore the carnage that Snapdragon had wrought, and were concentrating there fire on him whilst their commander engaged the enemy general.
Onom had gotten to Hatemonger, and instead of observing the noceties of battle, swung his hand blades with as much force in unison from left to right, hoping to cleave the enemy in three-

Seeing his targets split, he followed instinct, and ignored Greatshot, him being the greater threat, and tore off at top speed, wings beating the air ferociously at Roughstuff, making his Howl-Squawk as he did with all his might.

He cursed, and watched the drama before him unfold.

Eiramnna, pleased to see Tunnel Rat fring at will at the Transformers, used the devestation caused as cover fire, as he hightailed it over to his imprisoned brother, his thermal pistols in his hands, and a confused, desperate expression on his face.

Shelob, by now, seeing her webbing have less than perfect results, was fast realising that this may be the end: when the shrapnel cannon shell from Roadbuster and Bludgeons Electro-charge smacked ito her exposed innards, sending her forward into a crumpled heap, her realisations were more than proved. She hefted her fram up on injured legs, and opened her maw, to send the data-gasses to her eggs, so that her children may stand a fighting chance.
As she turned to face the intruders one last time, an all too familiar figure came roaring from the dark, and called her to battle: the painful one, Ginrai, had returned.

Well, Crap.

Roughtsuff dove lower, sacrifing altitude for air speed and cut hard left, trying to shake the mechanoid-ish monster from his rear.

Greatshot, however, took full advantage of his relative freedom from enemy attention and circled from his sharp turn onto the tail of the Wulturf, attempting to guide a steady stream of laser fire into the beast's shoulders, hoping to cripple it.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Wait, how the hell did this happen?

Snapdragon pondered, eyeing up the fresh troops encircling him and pouring more fire in his direction. His armor openly smoking and fluids starting to pour rather liberally from more than a few wounds, he realized that, without a bit of luck and some help, he might be boned.

"Well, might as well make a good tail for the rest of 'em to tell." and with that, he hurtled in the direction of the closest soldiers, fresh to the battle, hoping to pile corpses around him if, indeed, this was his time.

Jazz' vision of the enemy had also been obscured by Shelob's webbing, and he continued slinking along the rafters in another direction. He found an open spot from which he could look down on the enemy; he trained his photon rifle and waited. She'd proven tough, and there was no sense wasting ammo if it wasn't her weak spot.

On the floor, Derby had stuck close to Haras throughout the fight, and so the web had equally caught him and stuck him to the wall. He struggled to wiggle his wrist in the hope his bowmace would be able to cut through the caging. Before he could find purchase, he spotted Eiramnna approaching...

Countdown's command center had taken a pounding from the encroaching Quintesson forces, but he was not broken. He sat stoically in the base's main turret, focusing his de-kineto cannon on the remaining tank division while the base's auto laser cannons traded potshots with the last turret.

Executioners flew into the air like ragdolls as the kinetic charge smacked into their ranks: the Overcharge tanks that were directly beneath Countdowns assault faltered, whilst the rest continued to encroach on the base, firing shells with rapidity.
The Void shells on the Gun turret flickered in a purple haze as laser fire was absorbed into it, and the tri-barreled installation continued to pound at it's enemy.

In the air, the Wultirf shrieked like a banshee as it matched it's target for speed and maneuvers: it fired it's precision sonic boomers at Roughstuff, then felt a lance of pain as Greatshots laser fire tore into it's shoulder, sending sinew and wire falling to the ground.

Back on the ground, and the men that had surronded Snapdragon were divided: those closest to he oncoming Autobot headmasters and Skids were returning fire as best they could, sustaining casualties as the precise beam fire cut into their ranks: those shileded by the others and by the hulking great, wounded dragon transformer were concentrating a truly terrible barrage on it, heedless of their fallen brehtren by the beasts frenzied counter assaults.

Onom was beyond any form of conversation. Between his bloodlust, ad the shock of the losing most of his left arm, he was single minded and focused on hatemonger: seeing he had drawn energon, he redoubled his attack, swinging his blade with skill-less abandon, and firing the remains of his shuriken catapult at his enemies legs.

Roloc was sent backwards by Ramjets heavily armoured but aerodynamic head: incredulous at the apparent ineffectiveness of his Ion blasts, he focused his hand lasers on his enemy, merely retorting "Cretin!" as he did so.

Ramjet charged forward, taking Roloc's laser blasts on his upper arms. They marred his crisp white finish with black carbon scoring, but, as the conehead often reminded people, he was tough. His wounds hurt, of course. They hurt quite a bit. But pain was nothing to him.

"Looks like I was wrong. Your comebacks are getting even worse."

The seeker took a wild swing at the Quintesson's head with his right arm, then fired his left laser rifle down at the enemy's feet.

With both the bodies and the bulletholes piling up quick, Snapdragon contemplated doing something that was, in his mind, a very Autobotish thing to do. He only thought for a second, then acted. Springing into the air, the lizard transformed into his fighter mode, streaking away and leaving naught but a trail of smoke and seared armor platings.

I can't believe i just did that..... I should fly into a cliff.
But that would've been slightly less of a shock to his system as was slamming into the Wultirf. "What th-?" was all he could manage as his luck went from crappy to downright horrible.

Ginrais rocket impacted on Shelobs abdomen, causing the creature blinding pain, as the wounds from Bludgeon and Roadbuster were still fresh there: weeping oil, blood and tears, the behemoth steadied her rear leags against the wall behind her, and swung her fore legs in a whirling pattern of blades and saws, to ensnare her oncoming enemy...

Haras looked up in astonishment as his brother ran to him with pistols bared: Eiramnna was halted in his tracks by Roadbusters warning, and as Bludgeon readied to free Haras and his comrade Derby, he cried out in warning "DON"T SHOOT!"

Mean while, the largest of the blackened, rotten eggs shook and cracked: a single, hairy mucus covered leg poked out into the air...

Sonic Canyons
The Wulturf, shocked with pain from Greatshots weaponry, was also greatly surprised to see Snapdragon at the last minute: insult to injury, the horrorcon had collided straight onto his fresh wound, causing the wing to all but tear off!
The Wulturf scrabbled at his collidee, hoping for purchase...

Roloc fired instinctively at Ramjets approaching fist with his eye-ion blasters, forgetting that this weapon was a nill impact one: the fist cut through the beam, regardless of any damage it took, and connecting beautifully with Rolocs face, causing the Quintesson to fall backwards fast enough that his feet cleared the laser blasts aimed at them.

Onom, meanwhile, was whooping with joy akin to a gorilla when hatemongers unexpected weapon took chunk out of the cntre of his already wounded chest: Onom was left speechless, looking down at a hole he could have put his hand in...

Their troops were becoming less divided: some tried to follow up fire on the now dissapered Horrorcon, but nearly all made a kamikaze charge at the Headmasters, Nightbeat and co., their pistols and rifles bursting charges at them as they ran.

Countdown had never been a fan of seige warfare.

The turret's fire had succeeded in stuttering and finally shorting two of the base's autolasers, leaving only a few returning fire. Meanwhile, Countdown's dekineto cannon had unexpectedly jammed. He looked down for a moment to inspect the problem; when he looked up again, he noticed a tank's barrel lighting up and pointing at him.

"Oh no oh no oh no oh--"

Countdown had begun to climb out and jumped from the turret seat when the shell hit the cannon, exploding it fantastically in a cloud of flame. The blast sent Countdown soaring through the air and landed him on his back on the deck of his base. He forced himself up quickly and dashed toward his secondary gunnery station, firing at the tanks from his arm blasters while he ran.

Over the battle, Jazz' acute sensors picked up the characteristic sound of a missile approaching.

"What the..."

He looked down to spot the projectile just in time to jump, and Tunnel Rat's missile obliterated the beam Jazz had been standing on. Jazz flailed through the air with his free hand, luckily catching hold of another beam and dangling precariously above the battle below. He wasted no time in aiming his photon rifle down at Tunnel Rat and returning fire.

Jazz knew well enough to listen to Tunnel Rat's tirade while finding himself safer ground. He wanted to get inside the enemy's head while also getting away from him. Down wasn't an option - he hung directly over a massive web that would surely spell his end. Jazz held the beam with his free hand and acrobatically hoisted his legs overhead, planting them on the side of the beam he grasped. His leaping modification finally came in handy. Jazz pushed off the same moment that he let go, sending himself into a spinning cannonball while the missile destroyed the beam he'd been on. He straightened out and landed on another gracefully.

"Chill out, bro! I wasn't there - none a' us were! You gonna kill yerself for revenge against somebody who never did nothin' ta you?"

Jazz wasn't banking on psychology alone. He extended his subwoofers from his side and his flamethrower over his shoulder, directing a sound and light show at Tunnel Rat while spraying flame at the webbing below him.

Overhead, the ancient ceiling began to creak.

A ragged cheer erupted from the remains of the Tank division as the orange fireball erupted from Countdowns base: they were few now, but with their brother on the canyon wall, they may be able to take this thing down yet!
The division commander, OCL 20-11, roared at his men: all the Gatekkepers dead now, it was just him andthree Overcharge units:
"Charge! Take their Base!"

In the main of the battle, things were getting dense and condense, with the two forces forming coincidental units opposing each other, and the Quintesson commanders engaged in fights on the periphery.
Roloc, not a little desperate, pushed himself away furious whilst on his back, firing his lasers at full strength at the oncoming Ramjet:

When Tunnel Rat turned to rambling about his victims, Jazz could see he wasn't to be reasoned with, a lunatic who wouldn't be happy until he was destroyed. Jazz also could see the ancient roof couldn't take too much more beating. Having cleared himself a path through the webs with his flamethrower, Jazz dove to the floor.

Whilst their Mother and the God-monster Ginrai fought a bloody battle, Shelobs children were breaking out of their rank and rotten eggs with increasing rapidity.
They were legion: the first ones, weakened by a voracious hunger, were set upon by the late comers, then those, bloated and over content, were killed and devoured by their younger and hungrier brethren.
It was a feeding frenzy; normally the small creatures would have had a feast ready for them, and here it would have been the remains of the Quintesson raiding force and the protoguardians stuck to the walls and ceiling. Needs must though, and soon, there they were. Shelobs children. A vast array of differing variations on the themes of their mother, Spiders of all types and some of none.
Thousands of eyes glittered in the battle-light, as they saw living prey ahead of them; They swept forward, like a wave of metal-chitn, toward Haras, Eiramna, Derby, Bludgeon and Roadbuster.

Onom took the back handed swipe from Hatemonger to his chin, and he staggered backwards, disorientated.
For the first time in his simple, violent life, Onom was feeling fear.

Roloc, on his back and struggling backwards, took oe of
Ramjets blasts through the shin: he roared, more in the fashoin a child does when it feels something very unfair is happening.
"You stay put!" he cried, as oil leaked through his leg, he fired a concusion grenade at Ramjet from one of his grenade launchers: he hadn't cleared quite the required distance...

Chainclaws attack failed to hit any of the Quintessons that he had targetted, but they were noticable unsettled by the bounding ton of bear coming at them teeth bared and ferocioty unleashed.

OCL 20-11, too wrapped up in the glory of ordering commands, took Countdowns attack full on to the front of his Tank form; armour compromised, he transformed from Tank to jet, and oversaw his three comrades continued shelling of the base from the air.
The Turret which was pummeling the base was undamaged, it's high power void shield taking the full brunt of the attack better than it;s brother had, The same could nt be said for the cliff face: cracks appeared with every impact, and shards of steel were cascading to the ground.

The explosion lifted him off his feet and deposited him on the ground a fair distance away. The armour on the right side of his body was covered in carbon scoring, shot through with cracks and fissures and riddled with shrapnel.

Shelobs charge was cut short by the thunderous blow she recieved to her mandibles: their exo armour cracked and broke, leaving the glistening wet muscle underneath exposed.
She landed on her thorax, but still tried to press the assault by swiping as many of her arms across Ginrai as she could, hoping to at least push him back if not cut him two-

As he dealt damage to the swarm, one of Shelobs little darlings leaped through the ir aimed at Roadbusters face, legs outstretched ready to clamp on. Several others were trying toi surround Bludgeon, and smother him through sheer weight of numbers.

Haras found himself firing over his brothers shoulder at the oncoming horde of monsters.

Roloc, charred and battered from his own grenade, watched with despair as ramjets lasers pierced the msoke: he rolled clumsily, and taking minimal damge to his sides as he did so, he fired a wide spray of Ion Blasts and laser fire at the eeker.

Onom watched as Hatemonger brought his saber to pay again. he rose to one knee, and roaring desperate defiance, brought his blade to parry the blade: Hatemonger saber was diverted to a different direction, leaving Onom unharmed; but he was left staring at the ruins of his sword on his remaining arm.

Spinister vaulted from his perch in the rafters, narrowly avoiding being blown to bits by Tunnel Rat's shot. Transforming to helicopter mode half-way to the ground, he used his flamethrower to burn his way through the webbing that blocked the path between him and his foe. His lasers and particle beams, meanwhile, strobed red-hot death in Tunnel Rat's direction. Even though most of the shots were absorbed by Shelob's web, those that made it through would no doubt distract the traitorous mech's attention from the Autobot that he was trying to kill.

Spinister wondered idly for a moment why he was trying so hard to help Jazz, but dismissed the question as irrellevant and went back to work.

Jazz remained on his one knee with his photon rifle trained on Tunnel Rat. He knew better than to approach him even though the threat seemed minimal - it could be a trap. Jazz glanced up when Spinister began his descent, somewhat relieved that the odds may dissuade their unexpected enemy from continuing his assault.

"Let's call it a day, mack," Jazz shouted over at Tunnel Rat. "Ain't gonna kill nobody I don't gotta."

OCL 20-11 took Countdowns over charged wrist blaster shot to the right wing: cursing his fate, he sent an order to his three charges to hold grounf and continue pelting the base whilst he angled his fall so that he'd kamikaze straight into the base-

In the Air, the Cheetle saw it's weaponry fail to dent it's enemy, and tried to use it's speed and erratic flying skills to get close to Blackstar, very close...

In the Canyon, The Wulturf was thrashing around in pain, and saw an enemy try take advantage of his weakness: seeing Minerva trying to scan it, it lashed oit with it's hind legs.

The last thing to go through Onoms mind was Hatemongers fist. The back of his skull shatered and a mess of circuitry escaped as his body was brought to the ground before Hatemongers feet. Onom was no more.

And the army knew it. All the troops had kept one eye on their champions battle with the general, and with his demise, the morale was broken. Broken like stressed sheet metal, the soldiers flew in different directions, all away form the enemies around them, Chainclaw, Chromedome, Nightbeat and Siren.

Roloc watched in absoloute despair as his army disintegrated. Ramjet was still firing on him, and had cleared the smoke of his last Grenade.
Feeling a grenade slot into place to replace the last, Roloc continued to fire on the seeker, and tried to run backwards into the caverns of the canyon...

Tunnel Rat collapsed as Spinster's shots pounded and spattered his armour falling to his knees instinctively he put out his hand to save him but it was no longer there, he fell flat on his face , He rolled carefully on to his side and looked up at Jazz.

"Why should i trust you won't just kill me anyway us neutrals have only been collateral damage to you , slaves or resources to be exploited , you turned our home into a festering war zone , ruined our art treasures looted our businesses. Any who survived that fell to the depridations of the Quintessons. Now once again the pitiful remains of our once great planet are being fought over , and once you have defeated the Quintessons will you live in harmony or squabble over the carcass of Cybertron like two turbo foxes over a circuitboard. Even if you live in peace so much is gone forever where are the great writers, artists, musicians of our civilisation, are there any in your forces , and if there are do they still practice or have there talents been corrupted , perverted to serve the god of war."

The godmaster leapt directly up, and just shy of touching the shaky roof of the chamber, ignited his boosters, redirecting his motion... he'd managed to avoid getting carved up... and his armor was slowly regenerating from the gashes the techno-organic had left.. but if he didn't bring this thing down quickly, it wasn't going to matter very much how many times he avoided her. sooner or later, he'd get caught off guard, or worse, fatigued.

Diving down, his boosters adding momentum, he cut the thrust, rolling in mid air, bringing both his feet down at an angle in an attempt to stomp the tech-org on the top of its head.

Inside Snapdragon's cockpit, a small Nebulonian figure stirred and awoke. Krunk was not happy, strung upside down by his harness.

He unclasped himself and fell unceremoniously to the roof, which was floorside. Righting himself and swearing continually, he started on the nobs and indicators that were only part of his link to the massive war machine he was binary bonded to.


Get up you fat, greasy, lazy piece of scrap! I'm in no mood to be eaten by a techno-organic, so wake up and let's kill em all!

And with that, Snapdragon's optics flickered and his systems began scanning themselves, making ready to move.

Roughstuff had fallen well behind and astray of the larger Blackstar, which proved disastrous when he saw the Hawrillak approaching.

He attempted to airbrake and fling himself hard right, but broadsided imself to the behemoth within reach of it's claws.

Greatshot, still reveling from being the main reason one of the largest foes was out of the equation, received Hatemongers communique and immediately dove towards the fleeing Quints on the canyon floor, raining fire on their diminished ranks as they scurried from the Transformer foot-soldiers.

Shelob, desperation lednignher a little speed, had brought her fore arms up in front of her head to try and stop the oncoming Ginrai: they cracked and splintered, but held pitfully, leaving her face to face with this cursed thing that wanted her dead!

She stared at the enemy with venomous eyes, and armed with little more than her blind hatred, tried to push her head through the mess of her own limbs and sever him with a collosal bite-

The Spider babies meanwhile, had focused on their atacks on Roadbuster and Bludgeon, the dozen or so left leaping through the air and squealing with undiluted hunger...

Eiramnna took the lull in battle as the spiders moved to their two chosen prey, to assess his brother and Derby.

Countdown smirked for a moment, but his projectile simulation programming quickly turned that to a frown when he realized OCL 20-11's trajectory. Countdown frantically programmed the main cannon to shoot down the target before scaling the barrier of his command bunker and running down the runway toward safety.

"Slag slag slAGH!"

Careless, Countdown dodged straight into a blast from one of the remaining Overcharges. His tiny frame was tough enough to survive it, but the momentum sent him soaring off the runway, and he landed on his back on the unforgiving canyon floor beyond his defenseless base, stunned.

Derby glared at Eiramnna. He didn't like being called a thing.

With a cavalier spirit of unknown origin, Derby rushed past the Quintesson brothers into the fray, swinging his procured bowmace at the spiderlings encroaching on Roadbuster's back.

Jazz continued to stare down Tunnel Rat through the scope of his photon rifle, but it took all his will not to be indignant.

"Don't tell me we gave up on culture, man! That was the 'Cons - anything that ain't for war, they scrapped! Yeah we fight, but only 'cause we gotta, to make Cybertron rock again! Ya can't put us all in the same boat! If we lose, ain't nobody in the galaxy gonna have culture no more!"

The Overcharge team registered the death of their leader with the same pasionless hthought processes that reacted to the encroching Hatemonger. As the Generals shells exploded amongst them, they signalled to the Turret team ot support them: they remaneuvered to counter the new threat, whils the cliff bound turret team focused on Countdowns now abandoned automated base.

The rest of the army had shown far less discipline than the Overcharges in the wake of the death of Onom: They ran in panic and terror, falling over one another to return to the maze canyon hallways that had hid them before their attack. They were under attack from the air and from the ground, but in their haste they defended themselves poorly or not at all, leaving them easy targets.
Roloc saw his enemy Ramjet slowing, and took this as an oppurtunity. He turned tail and fled, though not without purpose: he called Cuph, the last sky-biker left from the Quint forces down to meet him...

The Cheetle tried to shriek in eagenress, but it made more of a mucous filled gurgle, as it buzzed lose enough to Blackstar to lash out with its front claws wildly-

Eiramnna made to shout at Derby, even rasing his gun hand at the fleeing transformer to prove a point: Haras dove at his gun arm fearing the worst, but before ought else could be said-

Shelobs perceptions were hieghtened as she saw the Rocket flames ignite in Ginrais launcher: she saw it loose itself from her enemy, and crack it's way through what was left of her legs:
She seemed to be moving through glue, nothing was as fast as it should have been. She couldn't even shut her mouth in time, and she felt the rocket fly down her throat with guided accuracy.
The last thing she saw was her enemy fly to safety as the rockets warhead caught something in her gullet, and her thorax expnded rapidly, too rapidly, gases inside her ignited it, and the Spider Monster Technorganic roared one last roar of defiance as she exploded, covering all and sundry with body parts and fluids amidst the fiery chain reaction of ignited gasses.

Hatemonger watched the burning turret and it's crew with a sadistic smile.

"Burn slime." Was all he said as the transformed back into his tank mode and went to check on Countdown.

*****************************************

Blackstar's systems were telling him to pull up but there was no way he could. He knew he was going down fast and hard.

The targetmaster would have probably reflected more except for the fact that the ground was fast approaching. He continued his barrage at the Cheetle and was ready to crash land into the ground and hopefully into the Cheetle.

Countdown remained slouched against his rock cover, which had served surprisingly well. He could hear the sounds of battle fading in the background, and he smiled to know they were winning in spite of the gaping wound leaking fluids in his torso. His optimism was short-lived, however, as the continued onslaught of the remaining pair of Overcharges finally toppled the tower of his command center, and he groaned.

"I'm fine, sir," he half-lied when he saw Hatemonger approaching. "Thanks for the help. It sounds like we did it somehow."

Jazz was already ducking back to drop Tunnel Rat and intercept the mine when the buzzsaw came toward his chest, bisecting his photon rifle. He was already in Porsche mode before he could care; all his thoughts were on that bomb!

Jazz burned out and charged forward with only an instant to operate. He swerved to ramp over a pile of debris from the roof and used his spoiler to glide and carefully catch the charge on his roof. He hit the ground driving, dodging spiderling remains to careen out into the tunnels beyond and bring the mine away from his teammates.

Those within could catch the flash of the blast and a cracking boom from the edge of the tunnel. Then it was quiet.

Tunnel Rat ran for the nearest entrance weaving from side to side. Spinsters shot caught him right between the shoulder blades. The impact throwing him half out of the exit. He landed draped across a pile of rubble.

"Hatemonger ,sir, what are your directions as to what we do now?"

Roughtsuff landed very unceremoniously on the cliffs opposite Snapdragon and the carcass of the Wulturf, skidding to a halt and pumping oil from the empty socket where his arm had been attached.

Snapdragon approached the stinking heap of the
Wulturf, flashing his claws out and making one quick slice through the beast's neck, severing his head.
"let all that stand in the way of our retaking of our homeland sufer the same fate. Now where do we go?" he asked to no one in particular.

The two Overcharge units, armour cracked and smoking, transofmed into their fighter jet modes and took off into the air, heading at top speed for the distant horizon: despite their continued success on the assault of Countdowns base, discretion suceeded as the better part of valour...

Blackstar smiled inwardly right as the ground approached.

Too bad I will not see see all of Cybertron won. He thought as he activated his explosives to make sure he finished the job. Oh well he thought. Better to die with honor than live a coward. Those were his last thoughts as he tore into the Cheetle he detonated his remaining explosives on impact making a rather large and impressive explosion as he hit the ground and his target. All that remained was a large burning crater filled with slagged debris that was formally Blackstar and what Blackstar hoped in his effort would be the smoking remains of the Cheetle as well.

Shatterstar looked on from a diastance holding back his disbelief that his targetmaster owner did that.

"Fool." He sighed as he quickly ran to rejoin the other transformers.

***********************************

Hatemonger opened fire on the remaining two Overcharge units.

"Transformers, this battle is ours!" He yelled pausing after the din of the explosion caused by Blackstar.

"Ramjet, Greatshot, Sideswipe assist Snapdragon and destroy the Hawrillak. Autobot Headmasters, Skids, Chainclaw and Sunstreaker. Assist me and let us send the remaining Overcharges to the inferno." He said as he continued to barrage the two remaining units attacking Countdown.

Ginrai's optics were wide in horror... in a matter of seconds, it seemed, the autobots' top spec ops man was lost.. under HIS WATCH.

The massive godmaster slowly stalked toward the downed form of TunneRat, bringing up one of his rifles.

" I should finish what Spinister just started. Just because you were caught in the middle of a war doesn't give you an excuse now to kill the very people trying to save this world..."

Ginrai's voice was as cold as a cryo-stasis pod

" So help me Primus... I am going to go down that corridor... and if I find Jazz is critcally damaged, repairable or otherwise... you WILL wish Spinister would've KILLED you, instead of simply dropping you."

Turning his attention away, his optics burning an icy blue, he glared toward bludgeon and roadbuster.

"I assume the two of you will fill me in on things when I get back. And see that our ... guest... gets no chance to injure anyone else in the meantime."

and with that, the godmaster separated from his armor and trailer, and slowly made his way down the tunnel, toward the point of detonation.

The measured, hollow clack, clack of Spinister's footsteps as he approached Tunnel Rat had a certain ominous ring to them, although a casual observer wouldn't have been quite sure why. Only someone who was familiar enough with the Targetmaster to realize that his footsteps usually couldn't be heard would realize how utterly, ragingly furious he was. His optics fixed on the prisoner as he walked by, promising death as the price for the insane Transformer's latest actions.

But not just yet.

Walking right past the prisoner, he followed Ginrai out in the hall to see what remained of Jazz. Alive or dead, the Autobot had shown enough of a warrior's heart that he deserved at least that.

"Minerva, let's scoot, we gotta move!"

Roughstuff, however, wasn't on any mission other than trying to stay alive. "hey, anybody out there? I could use some hel- NOOOO!"
his terror echoed through the canyon as the Hawrillak's shadow blotted out the sun as it descended in front of him.
-------------------------------------------------------
Snapdragon flicked his claws and scattered blood over the carcass in front of him, raising the beasts head up when Hatemonger's transmission came across. A second later, he heard Roughstuff howl in fright. "well, let's keep on killin!"

He started forward, but was pretty banged up from all the Oversharge blasts he had sustained earlier, not to mention his collision with his fallen enemy.

Sunstreaker had a much easier time identifying his target, quickly transforming and speeding towards the Overcharges attacking Countdown. His back trunk opened up and a large four barreled missile launcher extended out.

The Hawrillak, a greedy and desperate beast at the best of times, became a little focused on its target and not on its surrondings- it wrapped it's wings around the exposed cockpit of Roughstuffs jet, and extended it's head and mighty jaws to meet the Micromasters, salivating in prepration...

Spinister stopped one pace behind Ginrai, only taking in the smoky scene of Jazz's demise for a half-second before turning on his heel and stalking back into the main chamber. A part of him wanted to protest as Roadbuster pulled the trigger, knowing that the terrorist's memory tracts might contain useful data. That cold, calculating aspect was silenced, however, by that part that was outraged by the wasteful, pointless death of an Autobot who had proved himself to be a true warrior.

He gave the Wrecker leader a curt, approving nod.

Tunnel Rat jerked as the shot took of the side of his head. As the life drained from his frame he shuddered. As he slumped it triggered the dead mechs switch. Tunnel Rats body blew out in a spray of shrapnel. His mining charges and magazine of missiles detonating in sympathy as the switch overloaded his main power core.

Once the monster of the Hawrillak had descended on him, Roughstuff knew he would be very fortunate to see Cybertron liberated, but he tried to fight on gamely. Unfortunately for him, the Techno was upon him and the impact of Chainclaw's bulk only hindered his plans. the force of his weight suffered to drive its talons farther into his smallish fuel reserves, dousing not only his miniature frame, but also the entirety of his cockpit and a good bit of the Hawrillak as well.

Spinister dove away from Tunnel Rat's display of self-immolation, rolling behind a chunk of indistinct, organic debris that may have been part of Shelob at some point. The Targetmaster had no interest in examining the fleshy chunk any further to find out for sure, though. That proved to be for the best, because the chunk was flash-fried by the explosion.

Spinister pushed himself up, a disgusted expression visible on his face despite his best efforts to hide it. Greasy blobs of flesh now clung to his right side, defying his every effort to remove them.

Derby struggled to run, but his feet caught and slipped in a mess of organic goo smudged across the floor. His misfortune was relieved, however, by Scoop's heroism, protecting him from the explosion. When the shock had passed and the echoes had faded, Derby kneeled next to the Targetmaster with wide optics.

"Sweet Primus, are you hurt?"

Before he could get an answer, his fuel pump dropped at the sound of footsteps approaching from behind. Having lost his weapon in the chaos, he discretely picked up a bit of charred protoplasm with which to blind his assailant and spun with his arm drawn back like a pitcher. But he didn't throw it.

"Jazz!"

The special ops agent staggered toward the group. His right hand clutched the frayed socket of his left shoulder; the armor on his left leg and side was shattered; the side of his head was scorched, and part of his opticband splintered. Relentlessly brave, Jazz forced the biggest smile he could muster in spite of the lingering concern his wounds may yet prove fatal.

"Guess ya got the sucka, huh?" Jazz coughed.
