    The Purge: Gregor Strong

    Post by Nimbus on 23rd July 2016, 1:35 pm




    Participants:

    • Lexa Grimoire
    • Emilia Crohil
    • ZhuFeng
    • Tatsumi Yamato

    Target: Gregor Strong

    Appearance:

    Briefing:  Gregor Strong, Commander of the Cedar Rune Knights has been collecting "protection" taxes from the townsfolk for well over a decade.  These heavy tolls go directly in to Lord Gregor's and his lieutenants pockets, and if the townsfolk are unable to pay their protections tax their business falls victim to suspicious acts of vandalism.  It is time for Gregor Strong and his henchmen to meet their ends.  The Rune Knights HQ is heavily fortified and you are likely to meet heavy resistance from the Rune Knights stationed there, who remain fiercely loyal to Gregor because of how rich he's made them over the years.  You will have the element of surprise, no one will be expecting an attack so use this to your advantage.  Gregor is our only target, but these corrupt Knights are to be shown no mercy should they stand in your way.  


    Obstacles:

    • War Machines:  The Rune Knights protecting Gregor are not the threat that you might expect them to be even though there's a small army of them that have been bought by Gregor.  The real threat lies within the Military compound.  Behind the 30 foot steel walls that surround the base stand 6 prototype war machines known as Ogres.  These Ogres are 18 foot tall Lacrima powered war machines that are heavily armored and pack a mean punch.  Each Machine carries a variety of elemental infused tech weapons that will prove difficult to overcome.  Good Luck with that.
      Spoiler:


    • Heavily Fortified HQ: The military base is highly mechanized and can be considered one giant machine, fitted with automated turrets, traps and security.  From his office, Gregor can see the entirety of the complex from a set of monitors in his office, and can spawn a variety of guns and traps in an attempt to annihilate you before you reach him.  

    • Gregor Strong: Though he hides behind his traps and war machines, Gregor himself is a foe to be reckoned with.  He is a Strong Man mage, capable of enhancing his physical stats dramatically becoming more of a tank than anything inside of his base.  Be swift in his execution or he may end up becoming too hard to handle.

    It was time.

    Several months of training, mostly all of which Emilia had been through already, being raised among pretty much a private army, had lead up to this day. The day of the Purge. It was time to retake Fiore's military from the corruption that had taken it over. Emilia and some others had been given the assignment of assaulting the Rune Knight headquarters in Cedar in order to take out the corrupt commander: Gregor Strong, who had been pressuring the town for "protection money", utilizing the fortified HQ and prototype Ogre war machines to back it up. It seemed the team would have a decent fight ahead of them, but Emilia was confident that they could pull it off, despite the fact that Lexa had gone missing. She suspected Nimbus knew this, and would send reinforcements if needed.

    The former mercenary had to be honest. She didn't really care much about what this Gregor Strong was doing. All she cared about was the fact that she had been given a mission to take him down. Whether it was good for Cedar or Fiore was unimportant to her. She had been given orders and would follow them to the best of her ability. She didn't know her compatriots' opinions on the matter, nor did she particularly care. As long as they could pull their own weight on this mission, she would be satisfied.


    They had been briefed on the mission before making their way to Cedar, where they now all stood in the basement of a home, the owner of which the Garou Knights had connections to. As such, the woman had happily lent her basement as spot for planning their attack on the Rune Knight headquarters. They had a map of the facility, along with specifications on its defenses, the number of knights present, as well as specs for the Ogres. It seemed that each one was given two different types of elements to use, mostly opposing ones, and were programmed to utilize whichever seemed most effective against an opponent. They worked in pairs, with both Ogres in a pair using the same two elements, one would attack with the first element, and the other with the second element to find which was more effective. Once the more effective element was found, both would begin using that one. One pair was armed with fire and ice weapons, one with light and dark weapons, and the third pair with lightning and water lacrimas. Destroying the machines was not out of the question, but if the group could disable them or turn them over to their own side, that would be more advantageous to them and the Garou Knights in the long run.

    "So, I was thinking for bypassing the walls. I can turn off gravity in an area, with that out of the way, you two should be able to simply jump to the top and land like normal when you get out of range of the spell. That or... I could probably jump it while carrying you two. Once inside, I'll try to draw their fire." She said, knocking on the chestplate of her armor. "I can take a hell of a beating. It'll just make me hurt them more in the long run. The ogres are the biggest threat outside of Strong himself, so it would be ideal to focus them before anything else. Once we down them, we can use their bodies as cover against the headquarters' automated defenses."

    Enter the Divine Demon

    As Tatsumi knelled next to the two women, those he would only assume from the Dire Wolves, he prepared both his rifle and his sword. This was the day he would prove himself in actual combat, with no restrictions or rules to their escapade. It was get in, destroy, and get out. Though not completely common with his newest standings, it did not bother him as much as one would think. The young man, dawning a new jacket with the Tundra Wolves insignia on the back with the Garou Knights promptly in the center of the previous emblem. His almost purely white attire, with his now common white glove on his right hand covering the ever present Cor Draco guild mark, would make one think he was attending a wedding. One could say that is what he was attending, giving Strong his marriage proposal with death, but that would be a stretch.

    "I would say we could take the hunter's approach and wait or drag the prey out, but I don't think you two would enjoy that much. Also to save you any heavy lifting, I can just fly up there, and possibly just make you two some stairs. No reason to work ourselves before it even begins." As Tatsumi spoke, he had a rather weird tone to his voice. Though it came out as calm and collective, a hint of trying to hide a personality was present. He didn't want to let the first mission with these people to be spoiled by his sadistic nature. "Anyways, let us continue. I do wish to see how the others did."

    Zhu was standing in the basement of some random citizen with two people she had been assigned to for a mission. She was in a new guild, or rather a guild she had only just joined. It was called the Garou Knights and she had answered the call at the beginning. Now that she was one of them, she had volunteered for their Dire Wolf division which was supposed to be their soldiers and fighters so she fit right in with the best of them. Of course she bore their guild tattoo on her body now, letting it cover her entire mid-section, while the mark of her new division was stamped on her back. She still wore very scantily clad clothes mostly being underwear or the barest of coverings. She didn’t believe in armor, and the thought of it was an offense to the great Scorekeeper.

    There was nothing to be done now she had bent the knee and while she honestly could say she didn’t care about the mission these knights had, she would obey the commands given to her so long as they would not lower her in the eyes of the Scorekeeper. At present her orders along with the orders of her comrades were to eliminate someone named strong. There was nothing more, nothing less in her mind and she would slaughter anyone and everyone who fought for the man if they crossed her path. She listened to the plans that were being spoken while she absently played with her family’s blade that hung on her belt thinking.

    Zhu wasn’t the one for strategy, she wasn’t the one for grand plans, she was a weapon a blunt club used to inflict massive widespread damage without worrying about a point. At present she finally spoke “No one will carry me, I can fly.” As if to emphasize this she inhaled letting her body pop, crack, groan, and make a melody of sickly disgusting sounds as her body shaped anew forming two great angel wings and looking much lighter with far more dexterity. She summoned up her Arakh gently pointing it on the table map where the walls were “We can easily bypass the walls. The question is how loud do you both want me to be? I have no love for stealth, I have no love for this sneaking around. Point me in the direction of the ogres and I will either kill them or die trying to do so. Still, being machines they aren’t worth any Voin points to me. Hunter I think it best for you to sneak past us battling these ogres and try to assassinate this so called Strong in his sleep, or while he is caught unaware. That’s my stance. Lead on, and point me to foes I can slay.” with that she stuck her Arakh in her belt again waiting for instructions and willing to follow them. She wasn't used to working in a team that she wasn't leading and between the two of them they seemed more capable leaders so she would allow them to lead.

    Emilia shook her head, going to lean on the table, but thinking better of it, remembering the fact that she would likely break it with her weight. It wasn't exactly the most sturdy thing. "Strong won't be asleep for long." She chuckled, looking at Zhu. "Neither of us are the quiet type. But everyone here can get over the walls easily enough. The moment we step inside that base, alarms are going to be going off to high hell. Strong will be awake and ready for us before we can reach him. He might not be wearing any armor, if he does wear any, but he'll be ready to fight by the time any of us can get to him. The intel indicates he's stronger than any of us. If we want to take him out, we'll need to fight him together, at least two of us." She said. She cringed internally as she looked at Zhu. It was foolish for someone, no matter the skill to go into battle without protection. All it took was a stray shot or spell to take you out, and not wearing any armor made it that much easier. "Still, we could try to use this strategy to bring Strong outside. The sooner we can actually engage him, the less time he'll have to prepare, and the less tired we'll be." She turned to Tatsumi. "That means you'll have to go inside the base alone. There are traps and defenses in there, and there will probably be other guards. I'm sure you can take handle them, but it'd be better to avoid them until you can get to Strong. Do whatever you can to lure him out to us. Just don't let him get a hold of you and you should be fine. By the time you get him outside, we should have taken down the ogres, and can engage him and his knights on more open ground. Plus he won't be there to control the base's defenses anymore. I'm more effective against crowds than individuals, so I'll distract the rest of the knights and leave Strong to you two." She paused a moment. "And if you hear me laughing maniacally. Just... avoid me for a bit... I sometimes get to a point where I'll just attack the closest thing that moves, and I'd rather it not be you." She let out a chuckle. "So... shall we?" She looked her two companions in the eyes, waiting for their answers. Once everything was confirmed, they could head out and begin the operation. It was about time they took this bitch out.

    As Tatsumi finished preparing his things, he had a sense of release. He remembered that a lot of people in the Knights weren't exactly perfect, though this was not an excuse for him to lose composure. As he stood there, he took in the plan and was extremely ecstatic. "So go in, mess with an entire base with possibly freezing the entire thing, get Strong to come out and then destroy him. I like this, and maybe whatever is powering the Ice weapons can give me a good jolt. OH boy, I think we might want to hurry this, I'm starting to get all jittery thinking about it."

    As much as Tatsumi tried, he couldn't quite keep himself completely sane. The thought of the power he was going to receive sent him slightly overboard. As a few moments passed, he started to regain himself and looked completely alert and focused. "Alright shall we go?" He spoke, looking embarrassed as he glanced at Zhu, being the last one to confirm the go order.

    Zhu looked to the two companions she had while they took their turns speaking. She thought about the other Dire Wolf who was with them. She wore armor and it made Zhu doubt her combat prowess, but she would allow this stain of warrior’s honor as it wasn't her own honor at stake here. At present she heard the plan as it was and she couldn’t deny that she was also ready to get the job started. She looked over to her companions nodding her head once “Let’s go make some noise and kill someone.”

    She also looked to her fellow Dire wolf a small smile spreading over her face the skull on her eyepatch seemed to mimic the facial expression “Don’t worry about cutting loose. I won’t let you hurt the little Tundra Wolf we have with us.” She wondered if her little quip would allow her partner to actually understand that Zhu had no fear of her, or anyone for that matter. Presently she drew her Arakh smirking as she licked her lips moving towards the door “Perhaps the Scorekeeper will grant us her favor after all. Let’s get going.” With that the meeting in her mind was settled and she moved towards the stairs which led back up towards the main part of the house and towards the job site.

    With the strategy settled, the trio agreed it was time to begin the attack. It wasn't long after leaving the house that they arrived at the fortress, closed off to the outside. The poor bastards had no idea what was about to hit them. Emilia fastened her helmet and closed the visor to it, causing it to begin distorting her voice. With armor covering her from head to toe, and he voice masked by the enchantments on the armor, there was nothing even indicating she was female.

    "Time to take care of business." She said, grinning behind the faceplate of the red and black armor. Since everyone here but her could fly, she could just jump over the wall by herself. She did have 3 dashing techniques with her magic, after all, though they were all rather similar in that they worked by literally launching herself with a wave of force, so they could be used in any direction. She turned to Tatsumi. "Tundra Wolf, go find us Mr. Strong. I'll try to get power source for the ice weapons out for you." With that, she drew her sword in her right hand and her mace in her left, then crouched down a moment before leaping upwards, her normal legs bringing her about 10 feet into the air. With a clap of thunder she was launched up and over the wall. She landed with the sound of shattering bricks as her massive weight crashed down onto the ground, leaving a small crater. There was no one outside yet, and the ogres had yet to be activate. She started walking into the center of the small courtyard, determined to attract attention. She lifted her visor a bit, just enough to deactivate the voice warping effect of the helmet. "Gregooooooor, come out to plaaaayyyy. Gregooooor, come out to plaaaaaayyyy!"

    The redhead cackled and slammed the visor back down fully as she heard movement, no doubt the ogres beginning to stir along with the base's other defenses. "That's more like it."
