Once the centre of all Cybertron, Kaon is now a shadow of its former self. The military garrison live isolated in the great fortress of Kolkular and the wealthy elite lock themselves inside heavily-guarded citadels while the underclass live in slums and toil away at heavy industry.

Word of Megatron's return and Gigatron's fall from the throne in neighbouring Polyhex has only just started to spread, but already partisans from both sides are demonstrating in the streets, raising rabble and clashing violently with each other.

Something more sinister is spreading as well. Discontent among the city's rich and powerful over Kaon's fall from grace has been rife for years. But as they watch the working-class citizens squabble over which leader to follow, more and more of the wealthy are starting to whisper...maybe it's time they dispensed with leaders entirely.

(OOC: If you're interested in helping fill out the city's population, give me a shout. We could use a few more characters, including some who'll end up with important roles in the plot. :) )

Near Kolkular

Ransack really enjoyed spreading his wings.

The young Decepticon was flying in the airspace around the fortress, performing barrel-rolls and high G-force manoeuvres for the fun of it. Ostensibly he was out on patrol, but he never took that duty very seriously. After all, his sensors were among the most advanced in the Decepticon army and his weapons compliment was barely adequate for strafing ground-based targets, so even if hostiles showed up there wasn't much he could do aside from shooting off a warning to the command centre and then running away.

The small purple aircraft's aerobatics attracted differing reactions from those watching. His fellow soldiers watched his display of flight skill with grudging respect. The plebes living in the city's lower levels looked up longingly, wishing that they had the freedom to fly wherever they wanted without regard for real-life concerns. The wealthy plutocrats who ran the city's economy, on the other hand, looked down on him with utter contempt.

Ransack was blind to it all. He was flying, and that's all that mattered.

Jolt spurred on the "Mecha-Pony" as he surged to the front of the pack. He closed on "the turbo fox" and with a deft swish of his blade amputated it's left hand.

The worker who had fallen foul of the cities eliteblinked at the oil gushing from his stump then staggered on towards the wall of the hunting preserve.

Jolt turned to one of his compatriots

"I bet you 2000 Shannix I get his head for my wall."

He raised his sword

"Tally ho!"

HQ of Sirius Cybernetics Corporation


Stratus stood alone in the boardroom. The red and blue Skyquake repaint checked that the door was locked before opening his secret panel to reveal inside a room a room filled with pictures and memorobilia.

Stratus slowly opened a display case and hefted a double bladed axe.

He posed in front of mirror holding it.


"Soon Cybertron will tremble when they realise what I have concealed from them for so long. For I am Lord Straxus bwahahahahahaahahahahahaahahahhahahahaa hahahahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahhhahahahahahahaha."

Outside the boardroom his secretary glanced nervously over her shoulder as she heard the manaical laughter echoing through the top floor of the building.

The boss had been acting strangely of late , disappearing without a trace, pacing the corridors late at night according to the security guards, he hadn't been the same since his doctor disappeared."

The Predacons wandered the streets of Kaon as a pack. Razorclaw leapt stealthly above buildings, Divebomb soared overhead and Headstrong, Tantrum and Rampage all walked side by side on the streets.

"What a dump why did we stay here?" Divebomb asked.

"Because in the jungle we rule." Was all Razorclaw growled which made the sniper decide to stay in line.

Roadblock rode in his tank running debris off the road.

"From Commander to street sweeper, oh yeah this is fun." He said pushing some deactivated mechnoids off the road.

Megatron's transport

As the large craft flew over the thick, heavily-guarded wall that formed the Polyhex/Kaon border, Overkill could clearly see the difference between the two cities. Where Polyhex was a military town with each neighbourhood laid out precisely to military standards, Kaon was a patchwork, individual streets and buildings designed with an almost random assortment of architectural styles. The cassetticon figured it was probably a manifestation of the decadence that had characterized the city throughout its history. He said so, but no one paid him any attention.

As the shuttle started to turn to the north, Overkill got a good look at the imposing fortress of Kolkular and the acid wastes that stretched beyond it.

"Wow," was all he could think to say.

Near Kolkular

Ransack was just pulling out of a steep dive when the voice of the fortress' air traffic controller came over the airwaves.

"Ransack, report in."

"I'm here," the small Decepticon replied. "What's going on?"

"We've got a bogey coming in on a bearing from Darkmount heading for the spaceport district," the controller said. "We want you to perform a close-range check on them."

"Sure thing," Ransack replied, climbing back into the air. "Considering what we've been hearing, do we know which commander they're loyal to?"

"Rumour has it that Megatron himself is aboard," the controller said. "But that's for command to figure out. All we need you to do is make sure the ship isn't filled with explosives before we let it land."

"Consider it done," Ransack told him as he tore off southward.
_________________________________________

Command Centre, Kolkular

The controller activated the comm and sent an alert to all off the garrison's Decepticons.

"Unidentified vessel coming from Polyhex," he said. "Alert status two. Command staff please check in."

Big Hook glanced at the hoarding on the building site across the road.

Tanker was planning a new outlet opposite. How could an independent operator hope to survive with competition undercutting the prices and selling them as loss leaders.

Frowning he slammed Stockcar's hood

"One tune up all done you'll wow them come raceday."

Train handed Boxcar an oil rag

"Come on champ, you can do it , lets see your moves, and remember to try not to signal your roundhouse so much your opponent will anticipate it. We need you to be top notch for the big fight."

Boxcar swayed unsteadily

"Whatever you say Boss but I t'ink I need to sit down for a bit."

Bombshock watched as the city came into view through his weapons scope.Primus he hated places like this,where the rich ruled and the poor could do so little about it.He'd been on the bottom of the pile for so long he just wanted to blast a few of the mansions to dust,and then atoms for good measure.

"Staxx,Vindicator,any sign of hostile activity?"He asked,aiming his gun at one of the government buildings.

Bridge

Dropshot stood at the back,being a gaurd,again.The city came into sight,and he wondered if there would be a fight,or if the transport would get shot down.Knowing Bombshock was at the controls,it was more likely that there were going to be no AA batteries left,or civillian buildings for that matter.He wasn't one to speak,but Bombshock didn't know when not to shoot.

"Gotta dash looks like the commanders got us dashing about. I'll collect those Shannix later. Probably a false alarm."

Megatron's transport

Megatron brought the ship around the spaceport in a tight loop, trying to find a free landing pad large enough to accommodate them.

He glanced back at Dropshot and said, "Watch the sensors for incoming fliers. I want to know who's watching us before they get close."

With his magnetic field generator cranked up to maximum to make it hard for anyone on the ship to get a sensor lock on him, Ransack swooped in toward the transport and started to scan.

Frostburn tried not to sigh as he listened to the newsfeeds from Polyhex. Things looked very, very bad, with someone claiming to be Megatron overthrowing the rightful leader of the Decepticons and Gigatron fleeing the city with a small band of partisans. The aerial warrior suspected that the news was being spun by pro-Megatron mouthpieces before it was released, but still. Things still looked very, very bad.

The Decepticon soldier heard the call from Kolkular's command centre, but ignored it. Roadblock and the Predacons might be trying to pretend like everything was alright, but it wasn't. There was no chain of command anymore, not really, and he saw absolutely no reason to obey any orders that came his way unless they came directly from Gigatron.

Hearing Gondola's order, he waved in the direction of the server mech. "That sounds good," he said. "Get me one too."

(OOC: Frostburn is a repaint of Classics Jetfire done up in silver, light blue and light purple. At some point he'll get a profile.)

"Yes sir."Dropshot said quickly,snapping out of his revry.Which one,which one?Which ones the right sensor?He thought with frustration,hoping to the highest powers,Unicron or Primus,he didn't care which,put him on the right spot.His deductive prowess,or what he thought of as prowess,put him at what looked like the right sensor.He looked over it,but really didn't see anything,at best,a blip of fuzz that could have been one of the many biomechanical fliers or watch camera's.

Sirius Ironworks

Stratus gripped the handrail of the catwalk as he looked down at the latest subsidary of Sirius Cybernectics in it's guise as Sirius Enterprises plc. The big echoing foundry was empty except for himself and the forman who was giving a guided tour.

He turned to the foreman.

"If I understand correctly the scrap goes in the crucible and is reduced down to it's component parts, a Smelter if you will."

The foreman nodded

"That's right zur. Very efficent it be"

Stratus his eyes ablaze looked at the foreman

"Do you enjoy working for Sirius."

The forman blinked

"Well zur it's early days yet, I'm sure we can come to an equitable arrangement.

Stratus leaned closer

"That's not what I heard I hear as shop steward of the union your encouraging your fellow workers to strike for better pay and conditions."

The Forman shuffled

"only doing my job zur , got to look after the working mech.

Stratus moved closer producing an axe from subspace he demolished the security camera with one swipe.

"Very commendable if misguided you see...."

Stratus backhanded the foreman over the safety rail and down into the red glowing slag in the crucible below.

"you'd have been better off looking after yourself."

The foreman scrabbled madly against the sides hanging on precauriously

"help me zur, zurrrrr I'm sure we can....


Stratus pressed a button on the console which churned up the slag and the undertow sucked at the foreman pulling him in.


"AAaaaaghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh."

He screamed in pain as he slowly melted.

Stratus raised a Dictaphone to his lips

"memo to personnel, place advertisment for new foreman at the ironworks. An opening has occured due to the unexpected need to terminate an employee due to sedition."


He gazed deep into the churning cherry red metal.


"Excellent just what I need."

He raised the dictaphone to his lips again.

"Memo to maintenance Security camera in section Z2-45F needs replacing."

"All righty then."He swung his guns at the spaceports main AA batteries, smiling as he did so.He could get used to this,the whole being called sir and having his orders carried out.If,they actually did what he said,which would remain to be seen. "If they so much as target lock,blast them so far into the pit they won't be coming back."He said to Staxx and Vindicator.

"Um,sir?"Dropshot queried,trying to get Megatrons attention. "I think we have a flyer,cause someone has just started scanning us.But,thing is,I ain't getting much on rader.Interference....I think."He petered off,his expierence with aircraft and aircraft things other then Tracer was absolutely zero.

Megatron's transport

Megatron located a good landing spot and guided the shuttle downward.

"Is that so?" The Decepticon leader smiled a little bit at Dropshot's report. "Well, I certainly hope the local garrison is competent enough to have someone trail an unidentified shuttle entering their airspace without permission. If they hadn't sent anyone I would have had to have executed their commander on sight. Can you give me a visual?"

At the same time as he was talking, he plumbed his memory, digging up what he knew about the various fliers assigned to Kaon. Then his smile grew a bit wider.

"If it's who I think it is," he told Dropshot, "he's not going to open fire on us any time soon. Or me at least."

Ransack flew closer to Megatron's shuttle and continued to scan the transport as deeply as he could.

"Control, I don't think they're carrying anything other than personnel."

"Acknowledged, Ransack," the tower controller told him. "Keep pacing the shuttle until it touches down."

Frostburn got his drink, then glanced over at Gondola. "And what exactly is a femme like you doing in a dump like this?" he asked with no real curiosity in his voice. He found it hard to muster much interest in anything right now, but figured that conversation was better than listening to tales of woe and doom on the newsfeeds.

The tone in his voice left it open to interpretation whether he meant the restaurant in particular or Kaon in general.

He glanced around the restaurant furtively, as if he was looking around for any Megatron-partisans before continuing. "Actually, I work for Gigatron as a special agent of sorts. I'm set up with a lot of equipment that's very useful for solo deep-space travel, and he's got a lot of interests on the colonies and beyond. I was actually just on Argent a few months ago, during my last tour of duty. I'm here because it was high time for a vacation, but considering the news coming out of Polyhex I'm probably going to be looking for a new job tomorrow."

Blackjack and Detour sat side by side in the spaceport, watching the ship land. They have just received the command, and set out to get more information. The two Micromasters saw the large ship that is approaching.

Detour broke the silence, "Blackjack... Who do you think that is? Gigatron's ship... or the so-called Megatron?"

Blackjack replied quickly, "Detour... The ship is landing now. We will know the answer for sure."

Detour replied, "You are a strategist Blackjack. What do we do? Who do we follow?"

Blackjack stopped for a while and replied with a smirk "I would follow... Lord Megatron, if it is really him. He is a great manipulator. I remember that time when, under his lead, we nearly wiped out the wretched Autobots from existence. He is a great strategist, greater than even I. We would benefit greatly if we followed him again. I mean, we have been keeping a low profile ever since our patrol... split up."

Blackjack continued "You know... I think we better check our friends from the Battle Patrol now. They are in Polyhex, in the thick of action. The battle patrol might have... connections and opportunities..."

Detour, in agreement took out a communication device and dialed Dropshot, "Hey Dropshot... come on, pick up..."

"Same for you treadhead."Dropshot smiled back.It was not a friendly smile, but the smile of one that knew he at least had a bit more of an edge then he formally had.They both knew with thier leaders in sight,they could not fight. It was time for Bombshock to stretch his muscle,and see how much power he had among these other mechs.

"Staxx and Vindicator,I want one of those good old fashioned millitary line ups.Impress the big mech,and those we're gonna meet.This includes you Dropshot."Dropshot rolled his optic's and followed after him.He hoped these others would blow him away.

Blackjack sighed at his yellow companion. Detour's a nice guy, but he always gives up and runs away from any problem. This is where I wish I had Road Hugger and Hyperdrive... But what the heck, they picked up and left. When was the last time we worked together? Back in Tokyo?

Overkill was a bit puzzled when Bombshock called him 'sir' -- most people called him 'runt' or 'chatterbox' when they weren't referring to him as the even less respectful 'you' (usually paired with the words 'shut up').

"Perhaps a bent diamond formation," he suggested. "Or a Roadblock-six unit assembly." He frowned as much as his saurian face would allow. "Maybe even a Megatron Trident, although it would be a tad incomplete without at least one seeker. Then again..."

He continued to rant about similar topics.
_________________________________________________

As his Decepticons were getting ready for their mission, Megatron was doing the same. However, his approach was much, much different. The Decepticon leader took a moment to remember all he could about his time in Kaon when the cause was young, the rabble-rousing, the bloodsport and the final, decisive battle with Sentinel Prime that firmly established the Decepticons as a power to be reckoned with. He knew that this history was important to the city's rulers and even more so to the underclass, and so he planned to reference it as much as he could during the visit.

After taking a few minutes to ponder his next move, he headed for the exit and strode down the ramp, inspecting his crew with every step.

Bombshock remined intent on what Overkill was saying.He filed away the information,hoping to have the chance to actually both see it in action. And use it.He'd never thought of battle as strategic.You just shoved your cannon in thier face and shot.Perhaps the time was coming to think with something other then his fist and trigger finger."Sir,how long have you served Megatron,and in the Arms Forces?"

Dropshot finally got Blackjack's communique.The shuttle must have interfered.He tapped the side of his head as if he had an tic.It finally buzzed to life. "Dropshot here.Why in Primus' name are you botherin me?"He took not on how the line was formed,and stayed rigid when Megatron walked past.

"I've been in the Decepticon army for well nigh ten vorns now," Overkill told Bombshock, "but I only really serve Megatron because I work for Soundwave and the two of them are really close. He certainly comes off as a better leader than Galvatron or Gigatron, though, but then that's really not saying much, is it?"

As he walked down the ramp, Megatron held up a hand to silence the chatter. "Excellent, my Decepticons. You look the very model of well-trained soldiers. But now, we have work to-"

"Mighty Megatron!" The words came from the edge of the landing pad.

Megatron turned to face the voice's owner, then smiled. "Ah, Ransack," he said. "I thought it was you following us. Have you come to join me?"

Ransack didn't even hesitate. "Of course, my liege. Your wish is my command."

"Good. We have much to discuss, in time." Turning to address the entire group, he said, "Come with me, my Decepticons. We have a city to woo...and I know exactly where to do the wooing. Transform and follow me!"

Transforming to tank mode, the Decepticon leader started to roll toward the spaceport's exit.

Blackjack was attentively watching the ship's occupants moving out when Dropshot's commique arrived in his wrist inbuilt communication device. "Hey Detour! Looks like they got our message after all."

Detour, meanwhile is not paying attention. Freaking out when he saw the ship's hatch opening, he turned around. "I'm goin' home, see ya" Detour said. However, Blackjack caught Detour's shoulder and pulled him. "Not. Now."

Blackjack's tone silenced Detour. The large crowd of Decepticons surrounding the landing area parted as Megatron leads his Decepticons down the ship. Not recognizing the Decepticon leader's new body, but recognizing several familiar faces among the army -- Ransack, Dropshot and Bombshock -- Blackjack's mouth hanged open. What? He couldn't put two and two together. Bombshock and Dropshot, IN THE SHIP???

Blackjack pulled Detour and started to approach the group, pushing a red Micromaster out of the way. "Dropshot, this is me, Blackjack. Detour and me, we're on your left side. What the hell are you doing in the ship? Who is leading you?" and sended the message.

Blackjack could wait no longer. Hearing others' voices of "Megatron", he realized who the tank was and with Detour in tow, he moved closer. He did not care anymore whether Dropshot replied or not. He did not care anymore about calculations or speculations that he had always done. He did not care of the struggling Detour trying to run away. He did not care of Shivers' message entering and brushed it away.

The struggling Detour watched in awe at Megatron's large tank convoy. He stopped struggling and moved slowly in line with Blackjack. Blackjack must have a plan. He ALWAYS has a plan... With that, he also ignored Shivers' message, storing it for later.

However, Blackjack had no plan this time. All Blackjack had in mind was one thing: Megatron. Megatron is back. Impossible. Blackjack, never gambling or calculating this thing, moved closer to Megatron. He remembered the victories, the times that they won under Megatron's wing. What has Gigatron ever given them?

He whispered to Detour: "Megatron. Megatron is back. All hail Lord Megatron. All hail Megatron!" Blackjack then stood in front of Megatron with Detour and said rather loudly, "Lord Megatron! We are your willing servants forever!"

Megatron slowed down slightly, allowing Hatemonger to come up beside him. He and the general led their force into the streets, but he had to slam on the brakes when Blackjack jumped out in front of him. The Decepticon leader stopped a few feet from the Micromaster, the barrel of his railgun pointed squarely at the other Transformer's chest.

"And where exactly have you been, Blackjack?" He had a challenging tone in his voice. "I haven't heard your name in many years."

The Acid Wastes

Kaon's northern edge, bordering on the city-state of Stanix, wasn't exactly a tourist attraction. The battered and abandoned territory, eaten away for millennia by acid rains coming in from the north, wasn't as much of a wasteland as Stanix itself, but it was close. It was vaguely inhabitable, but there were so many more attractive places to live that no one actually stayed there.

As he landed on a rough and pitted street, Frostburn suspected he was one of only a handful of living people in the entire region.

Blackjack looked at Megatron's weapon and at Hatemonger's cannon. This is not good.

"Lord Megatron, I can explain." Blackjack began. "One of Gigatron's liutenants had a, ah, disagreement with my patrol over the incident so many years ago that involved saving you from the Space Bridge accident. We were 'banished' to this backwater city, and my patrol split up. We serve only you Lord Megatron." said Blackjack, hoping that the Decepticon leader would remember his help in his resurecction so many years ago.

Detour, meanwhile, stood behind Blackjack. Not daring to say anything, he looked at Megatron's entourage. Big guns. All of them. Then he saw Dropshot and Bombshock. Wow, they've grown big. Bigger means they are stronger. In their case they will be more trouble caused by them.

Megatron considered Blackjack's words carefully. The Micromaster had been approximately useful in years past and had never shown any signs of treachery, but his story would be very hard to confirm and Megatron had never been one to take someone at their word.

"Very well," he said, playing along, "say that I believe you. Where are the rest of your patrol now? Have you kept in touch with any of them?" His turret rotated slightly to indicate Detour. "Aside from the cowardly one, naturally. And what have you been doing with your time here?"

But anyway, I'm sure that the Battle Patrol" pointing at Bombshock and Dropshot "had the same problem. Anyway, in answer to your second question, we haven't been too quiet lately.

That wasn't true, of course. The intelligence that the duo had provided on the city's other Decepticon inhabitants was vitally important, but the Decepticon leader wasn't going to let that slip just yet.

"For now, however, I'm willing to accept your service if you will swear an oath of fealty to myself and the general here." As he finished speaking he gestured with his tank turret toward Hatemonger. "What say you?"

Megatron rolled into the wide-open historical park, which was over a mile wide and ten times that long. He noticed Roadblock joining his group and, as he transformed to robot mode, the Decepticon leader greeted him with a nod.

"Always glad to have a warrior of your calibre with us," he told his fellow Decepticon.

As he spoke, he walked toward the golden ziggurat that dominated this corner of the park. At it's base was a slate grey sculpture of Sentinel Prime, his Apex Amour torn off and his body battered beyond repair. At the top of the pyramid stood a massive, imperious-looking Megatron, easily twenty times taller than the real thing.

Megatron climbed the structure, but gestured for his followers to stay at the base. He wanted to address the large, milling crowd that had followed him here, and he wanted to have their attention focused on him and only him.

When Megatron reached the apex of the stepped pyramid, he turned back to face the crowd that had gathered. With no small amount of satisfaction he noticed that it had grown significantly in just the last few minutes.

"My fellow Decepticons," he said in the deepest, most profound voice he could muster, "this isn't the first time I've stood here. Hundreds of vorns ago I stood in this very square as the leader of a tiny rebellion, standing firm against this city's corrupt senate and the Autobot security forces that helped to prop it up. Many of you are too young to remember those days, but those of you who stood with me then," his optics shifted toward Hatemonger, a Decepticon who had been with him almost since the beginning, "knew then and know now why it was so important that we stand firm, that we stand as one, that we stand as Decepticons."

He waited a few moments, listening to the crowd's reactions, before saying "Those of you who joined later were inspired by what we few had accomplished, but most of all you were inspired by what we stood for. A new future, a strong future for the entire Transformer race. Now, as then, there is an enemy who would stand in our way, who would oppose our struggle for greatness. But the Autobots are no longer that enemy. In fact, the Autobots are so much like us now that there is little reason for us to be enemies at all. No, this new enemy is more dangerous and more subtle than that. This new enemy is within, betrayers who wear the Decepticon badge and swear allegiance to the cause while they try to manipulate events for the betterment of a splintered future timeline that none of us may ever see."

He paused again, listening to the murmurs of equally-mixed anger and confusion. After a scant few seconds had passed, he made a point of dispelling the latter while at the same time providing a convenient target for the former.

"These Destrons, as Gigatron and his Breastforce minions still call themselves, are no friends of the Decepticon cause. They have convinced many of our brothers to join their insane crusade, but fear not. I won't allow them to spill a single drop of Decepticon fuel for their own gain! I won't allow them to tear our faction apart and make us easy pickings for those who would like to see all that we have build torn down! I will find Gigatron and I will lay him low, just as I did to Sentinel Prime all those vorns ago on this spot. I will do this because I owe you nothing less. I will do this because we are Decepticons and I am Megatron!"

As the crowd started to roar, he noticed that several faces were looking up at him not with adoration or respect but instead with suspicion and hatred.

Good, he thought. The challenge is issued, and now they will have no choice but to come after me on my terms. And when they do, I'll be ready.

Detour looked at the approaching ships. What on Cybertron... and flipped up his weapons. "Ransack, are you seeing what I am seeing?" as he pointed in the wave of the advancing ships.

Blackjack saw the same thing too. He took out his two guns and ran to where Hatemonger and Roadblock are, "Slag. General Hatemonger! Look, up in the sky. Incoming aircraft, possibly hostile."

Blackjack heard the order. "Never mind." he replied to Hatemonger, "Megatron has spoken, we will follow." Being an advance assault in nature, he ran closer to the crowd, near one of the enemy, and started blasting like a maniac. "DIE!!!!" He know he can fight recklessly for now, he have big allies around him. "Traitors!!" as he hit one of the jets near him on the wing.

Detour took a safe spot near Bombshock and Dropshot where he is nicely covered. Then he started opening fire at the airborne Decepticons. "C'mon guys, let's blow them out of the sky!" He saw Blackjack's maniacal shooting and sighed. For someone so logical, his actions don't make sense.

Blackjack, now in the crowd, continued firing at the incoming waves of assault jets.

"Die!" He shouted as he grabbed on the bottom of one of the low-flying assault jet.

"Let go, Micromaster." The enemy growled at him.

"Never make threats you can't accomplish." Blackjack placed a bomb on the jet's fuel engines. Set for twenty-one kliks. He then grappled his way to the jet's cockpit and ripped the jet's navigational systems.

"Get out of there, tiny nuisance!" The jet shouted.

"If you insist." Blackjack jumped out of the jet and landed on the crowd with a clang. He obtained several light damages, but the jet that he placed the bomb on flew uncontrollably onto an incoming wave of jets and exploded. "I always liked fireworks." Blackjack said as he pulled himself up.

"If that's what they're trying to do they aren't doing a very good job of it," Megatron told Hatemonger as he blew another attacker out of the sky. His voice betrayed more than a little hubris -- the Decepticon leader was proud of how well his troops were doing.

His left leg injured in the fall, he transforms into his alternate mode and nears the other Decepticons. Safety in numbers.

As the battle raged on, Megatron noticed that several members of the crowd on the ground with him had turned against their fellows, leaving the area entirely or even opening fire on the Decepticons that had stood firm with their leader.

Such rampant betrayal, Megatron mused. Transforming to robot mode, he used his fusion rifle to obliterate one such traitor and shredded a second with a round from his railgun. I really have been gone too long, for such attitudes to have festered so...

He blasted another disloyal Decepticon, then smiled as he looked around at all the fallen enemies that littered the once-pristine park. Still, I have to admit...my Decepticons are doing really, really well.

Megatron wasn't sure who's side the drones were one when they waded into the battle, and he didn't particularly care either. After all, they were just drones. Repairing them would be simple enough if their master turned out to be on his side.

Returning to tank mode, the Decepticon leader rolled through the crowd, railgun and fusion rifle blasting anyone foolish enough to aim their weapons at him. He noticed, though, that there were fewer and fewer people doing that.

"We almost have them routed," he told his Decepticons over their comm frequency. "Hatemonger take Bombshock and Dropshot and move toward the east flank. Staxx and Vindicator, you're with me.

Megatron listened to the reports coming in, a self-satisfied smile on his face. Running Gigatron out of Polyhex, for all the good it did for the faction, had been an ultimately unsatisfying venture for him. It had been long, drawn-out and nearly bloodless, the culmination of an excruciating sequence of secret plans and alliances.

This, on the other hand, had been exactly the opposite. Quick, dirty and violent, and in the end infinitely more satisfying. It was a victory, not a pathetic win-by-default.

"My Decepticons," he said in a booming voice, "you have done well! But this was just the first step in our quest to bring Kaon into the fold. There is much work yet to be done."

Blackjack heard Megatron's call. He was quite surprised his name was in the list. "Yes, Lord Megatron." He transformed, kicked into high gear and drove through the body-strewn park, knocking apart a few bodies, passing the feeding Overkill, swerving through debris before reaching Megatron and screeching to a near halt near Roadblock. He transformed and walked beside the pretender, waiting his leader's orders.

Detour, strolling beside Dropshot, kicked the head of a Reflector unit killed by them. "Man, this victory is great!" He switched on heat vision on his eyes, trying to look for any living Transformers beside their own.

Lucky we joined Megatron early, or we might be massacred with them. I mean, who woulda paid any attention to a coupla Micromasters? As he looked around the park, his sensors completely missing Powertrain's party.

About hundred of them with their knees on the ground and both hands on their head. Suddenly one of them, stupid enough made a lunge toward the security officer.

"For GIGAT-"
Haven't finished his word, Dalliox then smashed the protestor with his cannon.

"Gun please." The drone then threw a pistol at its leader.

"Heroic nonsense."
Not going to waste more time, viciously blasted the prisoners head at pointblank range killing him instantly.

He then turned to Megatron "And them?" Waiting for fates of the rest of the prisoners.

Oh, yes... In a good orn you could really pick up something worth having...

The mech was nervous despite his Decepticon-badged pretense of self-assurance - he clutched his rifle tightly across his chestplate, but not so tightly he managed to cover the fact that his hands were shaking. He was lighting his own way through the semi-gloom with overbright shoulder-mounted arclights that sent shadows scuttling along the smoke-streaked walls and dripped waves of darkness across the mounds of debris.

There was a sudden clattering and he turned a startled face only to see something sharp flashing towards his optics. Then he was blind, flailing in shock until a huge dose of electricity ripped through him, searing vital terminals, and his CPU overloaded with a brutal bang.

The four small Autobots transformed to their vehicle modes and revved their engines, waiting for Jolt to lead the way.

Megatron thought for a moment about what to do with Dalliox's prisoners. The tin-pot tyrant he had once been would simply have executed them on the spot, but over the years the Decepticon leader had learned the value of theatricality, of putting on a show for the masses.

They will die, alright. But they'll die when it most benefits me.

"Keep them right where they are," he said. "If any of them make a move, kill them and the ones on either side of them."

As the senior members of his party drew closer, he gestured for them to follow him out of earshot of the other Decepticons. "We have much to discuss," he told them.

"Blackjack and Roadblock, you two have been here significantly longer than the rest of us. What is the mood of the local population? Are they loyal to the local government, to Gigatron, to the Decepticon cause or only to themselves?"

They are Decepticons, and yet they actually want peace. Disgusting. As you can see," he waved his hand at the prisoners under Dalliox, "many of them, myself NOT included, hold Gigatron to be a reason for their peace and are ready to fight for him. Personally, I think that is just slag."

"Some are overtly loyal to Gigatron, like a certain blue and white jet Decepticon I just can't remember the name." (he was referring to Frostburn, of course), Blackjack continued "Some, like one of the many businessmech here, Lady Loca, wants only to make profits."

"Kolkular is rather heavily defended, and we small uns can't seem to get in. Roadblock here seems to be able to go anywhere he wants. I mean, who would argue with that gigantic tank mode? Heck, he alone can bring the walls of Kolkular tumbling down."

Blackjack looked at the direction of Kolkular. Soon it will be ours. Soon...

"All hyperbole aside, I strongly doubt any of us could singlehandedly take down the fortress' defences," Megatron told Blackjack. "Myself included. And even if I could I still wouldn't. I want Kolkular intact and with as little damage as possible."

He pondered Hatemonger's opinion and nodded. "You're quite right. Taking the fortress will only be the first step in taking the city. Playing off of the older Kaonites' memories of the revolution has netted us many supporters already and I suspect we'll attract even more over the coming days. But, as Blackjack says, the city's elite will have to be brought into line one way or another."

Megatron frowned slightly. "The Predacons, do you say? They would prove very useful, but if they turned against us it wouldn't be the end of the world. I've single-handedly defeated them in the past, and wouldn't have any trouble doing it again. Roadblock, you probably know them better than any of us, at least over the last few years.

Bombshock considered all in Megatrons conversation.His preffred method of walking through things that got in his way probably would not be his best suite in this area.

"Sporadic."Dropshot said.A rather surprising remark from him.

"Yeah,sporadic.Nothing too suicidal.Can't have you taking all the flak."An uncharacteristic move on his part.They had to work as a group,and if they messed up in any way,Megatron was going to kill them both.Something Gigatron had never appeared to think of.The fear of not living was enough to drive him to courage,and Dropshot to follow.Even if that leaving was possibly more dangerous then how they had formally lived.They hadn't even fought yet.It was that remarkable of fear.

Powertrain held up his hand. "Now wait just a minute. I haven't signed off on this yet."

"We gotta do it, chief," Mudslinger piped up. "Stopping Megs was our assignment, and this is the only way to do it."

"Our assignment," Powertrain replied, "was to disrupt Megatron's operations and to deny him control of Kaon. It most certainly wasn't to assassinate random Decepticons, steal their identities and get ourselves killed in a futile attempt to take out Megatron himself."

"Who said anything about assassination?" Tote chipped in. "All we really need to do is roll the guy up in a carpet and lock him in a closet for a few days. In fact, it would work better if he was alive because we would be able to interrogate him for whatever info we need." The Micromaster shrugged. "And who knows? Maybe we would get really, really lucky and it'll turn out he's not a big fan of Megatron either."

Powertrain shook his head. "I don't like it. This would be suicide."

"Risks won't take themselves," Mudslinger said. "Someone's going to have to stop Megs eventually. It might as well be us, right?"

"And there's nothing saying we have to go through with it," Tote said. "It's just an infiltration mission. What Mudslinger does once he's inside is going to depend on the situation he finds when he gets there."

Powertrain sighed. "Fine. We'll grab this Greasepit and send Mudslinger out to join Megs in his place. But anything we do beyond that is going to have to depend entirely on whether or not we can survive the attempt."

He sagged slightly, then turned toward Misfire, Thunderhead and Loadstone. "After him," he told them. "He'll get himself killed if we let him charge in on his own."

The Rainmaker leader dove out of the shuttle door and transformed to F-15 mode. Igniting his afterburners, he blazed toward Predaking and opened fire with his hyperion cannons.

Megatron transformed to robot mode in the air after Predaking's swipe knocked him into the air. He fired his railgun into the ground, and the recoil from the shot swung him back around and let him land on his feet. Opening fire with his fusion rifle, he vaguely noticed that other Decepticons were joining the fray.

Not familiar with any of them, he noted without much emotion, but they seem to be friendly. So far.

Frostburn glanced at his chronometer, then smiled to himself.

Almost time for my meeting with our would-be patron, he thought. A pity I won't be attending in person.

The Gigatron-loyal agent looked at the soldier who was standing at attention in front of him. Then he looked down at the nearby video monitor and smiled.

"The video and audio hookups seem to be working perfectly," he told the soldier. "Are you prepared to work as my surrogate?"

"I am," the soldier replied.

"Good. Then head out to Iacon. This 'Loca' will be waiting for you."

"Got you" Misfire said to Acid Storm. He rose from his seat and transformed into his Cybertronian spaceship vehicle mode. "Aimless, attack mode."

Misfire flew behind the other Decepticons. Aimless hopped out of the cockpit and latched onto Misfire's front section in gun mode. Aimless shot Predaking, however it sprayed in all different directions on the ground around Predaking.

"Fool." Misfire said.

"See if you can do better?" Aimless said.

Without replying, a black gun (OOC: similar to Cyclonus' one) popped out of Misfire's side, and blasted Predaking right on the left foot. "Howzat, you worthless Nebulan fool?"

Aimless didn't reply.

'That was not one of your best moments,' Dark Walk told Jaggor tightly. 'What is that Earth maxim? Ah - look before you leap, yes?'

Jaggor had crashed out of the shuttle activating his anti-gravity lifters, but was too far from the ground and dropping too fast for them to do more than cushion his inevitable impact. Crawling out of the shallow, smoking crater and over the remains of several mechs caught by the concussion, he reeled upright triumphantly, raising both accelerator rifles to eagerly open fire upon those mechs charging at him.

Aboard the shuttle

Loadstone headed for the exit as Acid Storm commanded, but baulked at the drop beyond. He had spent too much time deep underground, enclosed in the relative safety of the Smelting Pits' lower levels and the situation facing him now was daunting. The Rainmakers seemed to have no concerns about the shuttle's height or speed, but they were jets...

[i]Hmm, seems Megatron has more help around here than we thought. Maybe it could be worth fighting for him.[/b] Predaking thought as firepower hit the Giant warriors armour sheering and melting it in places. He quickly fired back with his shoulder lasers and x-ray cannon.

"Just stick with the plan and everything will be fine." He said as he opened fire on a nearby building hoping to draw any attention to him.

Megatron stood in place as the unfamiliar Decepticons assaulted Predaking, a stern expression on his face.

I recognize that one, he thought, glancing at Misfire. He arrived at Darkmount shortly before I left. And the seekers are some of Shockwave's leavings. The ground troops are completely foreign to me, though.
___________________________________________________

Acid Storm deked around a blast from Predaking's x-ray cannon and returned fire. Nearby, he caught sight of Thunderhead gliding toward the ground, a smoking hole punched through his starboard wing. Downpour was farther away, monitoring the giant Decepticon with his sensors and presumably looking for weaknesses.

These two are a tad useless, the Rainmaker leader thought. No wonder I'm so much happier pulling shifts in Operations these days.

"You really don't understand," Ransack told Steelshredder. "Megatron didn't make me join him, he made me. He gave me life during the war with Jhiaxus. Without him I wouldn't be here at all. So, yeah, I'm on his side. Deal with it."

As he spoke, he unleashed a flurry of rotor blades in Steelshredder's general direction.

"Already on it," he told Bombshock.

"Then let's go. Try to kill everyone on the way. But keep the noise level down." Blackjack said to his comrades.

Blackjack and Detour transformed into their vehicle modes and drove very quickly and with some stunts. They were not called 'Tiny Terrors of the Turnpikes' for nothing.

The two miniature cars' way was blocked by two blue-coloured drones, but they were not to be stopped that easily. Weaponry popped out from various ports (OOC: think Spotlight Nightbeat) and blasted the footing of the drones. Blackjack and Detour didn't stop and charged at full speed as the drones toppled behind them.

"Well?" Detour asked. "Overkill, what do you make of the interior of Kolkular?" he said, trying to strike a conversation.

Windsplitter entered a command. "Drones 45 and 60, report."

Turrets

Steelshredder was pushed backward by the flurry of attacks from Ransack, but he whipped out his own rotor blades and tried his best to parry the other Decepticon's attacks. However, with a distinct difference in the skills, Steelshredder was slowly pushed backwards.

"Dammit! Well, then... Since you're now Megatron's now, howzabout we make a deal, hm?" Steelshredder said to Ransack, trying to save his skin.

Meanwhile, Rummage was too busy moving to another turret with a coupla drones, peppering Bombshock and Dropshot with machinegun fire. "DIE SLAGGING WORMS."

Aboard the shuttle

Loadstone stepped back from the open door and steadied himself. Crossing to the control panel, he found that the shuttle was descending under autopilot control. The forwards viewscreen showed the disorganised clamour of the fighting which surged about a gestalt he recalled had the name of Predaking.

He drew his vitro-dart gun only to find his hand shaking. It had been an extremely long time since he had engaged in direct combat; questioning petty criminal offenders did not require more than a little... direct contact. And it was damage received on a battlefield such as this that had resulted in his complete reformatting and reassignment to the Darkmount Lower Levels Security Team.

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

Cutting down a swathe of would-be attackers, Jaggor raced towards the towering form of Predaking with a rising angry cry. He had optics only for his intended target, plunging blindly past the one he intended to save - Megatron.

Dark Walk reached out in an attempt to seize control of his friend's body, to tamp down the crimson rage, but to no avail. Jaggor's every system was committed to the attack. Angry himself now, Dark Walk stopped, phasing out of Jaggor and appearing as a black, semi-transparent shadow.

"All for it.KAMIKAZE!"He yelled,and threw a personal sticky bomb at the turrets.It was a happy bomb,that counted down in a cheery voice just how much time you had before it blew everything to pieces.(From the Starship Troopers book...had to,such a fun bomb...)

"I can speak for him, yes." Arachnid managed not to shudder at the thought of just how literal that sentence was. With Frostburn wired directly into his neural network, the other Decepticon heard and saw everything that the Insecticon did. Along with the scrambled comm frequency open between them, Frostburn had turned him into little more than a walking mouthpiece.

Putting that out of mind, he asked Locamotion, "What exactly did you wish to discuss?"

"Well, since I'm currently being carried around as a cassette, what I can see is very, very limited," Overkill told Blackjack. "It looks very, very old, though. Not quite pre-war vintage, but it definitely hasn't been refurbished since Megatron's early days in power."

Highjump and Tote rolled up side-by-side and transformed.

"We're going to do this quietly," Highjump told his unwanted partner. "I'll sneak in through the back while you-"

"Kick in the door, grab him and beat him into submission?" Tote shrugged. "Don't mind if I do."

Then he proceeded to carry out the first phase of his plan, knocking down the door with a single kick and shouting "Nobody move! This is a holdup!" and waving his sidearm.

Highjump sighed. He had hoped the other Micromaster would provide him with a distraction, but this was a bit over the top.

Still, we use what we've got on-hand to get the job done...

Confident that his teammate would attract Greasepit's attention if he was home, Highjump snuck around the building and quietly picked the lock.

Acid Storm caught sight of Dark Walk breaking free of his partner, and if he'd been in robot mode he would have smiled.

"Hm... What modifications do you think will be appropriate for this base?" Blackjack pondered at Overkill's statement. The two Micromasters sweved around corridors, blasting another drone.

Detour took aim at a camera with his turret. "Which way is the control room?"

The two Micromasters have unveiled many weapons that they don't look like cars if viewed from the outside. (OOC: Think Runabout & Runamuck in IDW's infiltration)

"I don't know. We're advance assault, Detour, we're supposed to find out." Blackjack said as they come face to face with a Seeker. "Hi. Bye." The two cars moved under the bewildered Decepticon's underside, Blackjack dropping a bomb. As the two Micromasters sped away the Seeker blew up.

Even in the throes of battle-lust, Jaggor realised there were mechas on his own side between him and Predaking, but he did not care, never slowed down, slamming several flailing forms aside until the others reacted to what was coming their way and cleared him a route.

Skidding to a halt, he hefted his rifles and, with a savage yell, fired at the nearest knee and the hip above it.

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

Out in the open, Dark Walk felt a tug as the distance between him and Jaggor increased every astrosecond. He could not let his lifeline stretch too far; too far from the generator would mean dissipation in this planar reality. It made him laugh self-mockingly; he was becoming as impulsive as Jaggor, letting go like that.

An already damaged, gun-toting unit was heading for him, unaware of his ghostly presence with Megatron in his sights. Dark Walk swept a long, wispy arm before him and plunged through the mech, who began to convulse violently, twitching his finger on the trigger.

"Well, personally I think this place needs to see a wrecking ball," Overkill told Blackjack. "Refurbishing it would cost almost as much as building a brand new fortress, and the end result would be a geriatric old building with a fresh coat of paint and some new guns slapped on. But then, I suspect Megatron has a sentimental attachment to the old place. It's a piece of our history, after all, and a very, very important one at that. It would be sad to see it go, but isn't that the way the world works? The old always eventually falls to make way for the new. Planned obsolescence, as our friend Icepick would call it..."

"Of course. This fort is... obsolete." Blackjack said to Overkill "As a matter of fact, I think the weak defense systems are why Bombshock and his troops are able to take down the forts so easily."

The two Micromasters screeched after a drift to stop in a room labelled 'CONTROL ROOM'. Two drones stand in the way. "halt show your identification or we will fire" the drones rambled.

After quick headshots to each of them, Blackjack and Detour transformed into robot modes and entered the control room.

Windsplitter was busy briefing the other four mechs in the room. Suddenly the door slammed open and Piledriver fell to the floor dead with a short squeak, his back and head riddled with bullet holes.

Windsplitter was shocked and half-expected a squardon of heavily armed troopers to enter. But instead entered two tiny mechs, one smugly smiling and the other looking like he's afraid.

It looked pathetic, really. Four armed full sized Decepticons who can step on these Micromasters with guns only as long as their fingers. "I don't know how you came in but you're gonna die." Windsplitter said.

Blackjack gave a smile. "We are troops of Megatron and we represent him. This is your only chance to surrender."

"Why would I surrender to a couple of tiny midgets?" Windsplitter laughed.

"Don't say I didn't warn you. I am Blackjack. I never take risks I cannot win. This is Detour." Blackjack said as the two sprang into action. "Overkill, KILL!" Blackjack said as he threw the cassette towards Windsplitter.
