[RK19] Fleet Forum Battle 3 - Escape from Ninja_verse!

Postby ninja_bait » Tue Jan 01, 2019 7:23 am

Previously

Sir Gawayn:  Looks like we've escaped the Empire safely.  How is the President doing, Captain?
Image

Captain Atto: He's stable, but without a professional medic on board Councilar One, there's not much I can do for him.  We need to get to the capital's hospital as soon as possible.
Image

Sir Gawayn: As for you, Secretary Snape?  What have you learned from the book?
Secretary Snape: The Visual Dictionary is exactly what we thought.  It's tactical and strategic data about everything in the Nehellenium Galaxy.  If Warhead and the Emperor get hold of this, they would surely be able to finish the Immortal War.
Sir Gawayn: Well, fear not.  Soon we'll be back in friendly space and with the Visual Dictionary in RC hands, we can set about destroying the cursed thing.
Image

KA-KRASH!
Sir Gawayn: What was that?!
Image

Captain Kodai: Attention, Councilar One!  This is the Imperial Destroyer Intrepid.  We are holding you in an Interdictor Beam and there is no escape.  You have taken hostage a member of the Imperial cabinet.  Return him at once!  If you do not, we will be forced to disable your vessel and take him by force.
Image

Captain Atto: An Interdictor Beam!  Damn those Imperials.  We'll need to disable it from within if we are to escape.  You two stay here.  My squad can handle this.
Image

Captain Atto: Lock and load for EVA, men.  You know what to do!
Squad: SIR YES SIR!
Image

Sir Gawayn: They want you alive, Snape.  That's good - it means they don't realize you have the Visual Dictionary yet.  We can still make it!

The Scenario

Councilar One is trapped in an Interdictor Beam, limiting its movement to 1d6 per turn.  Its goal is to make it to the escape vector (blue arrow) in one piece.  The Imperials need to destroy all the red support vehicles and cripple Councilar One without destroying it.

The Interdictor Beam Generator can't be harmed by spaceship weapons.  A team of 6 Counciliar Guardsmen are deploying to take it down from within.
Image

Kill the Marines guarding the Generator and then spend one turn to set charges and blow the thing up.
Image

There are two major events to be revealed, one at round four, one at round six.

Players:
Falk - Blue
Me - Red

Round One

The Counciliar ships break toward the escape vector while the EVA drones carry the guardsmen toward the Intrepid.
Image

One of the torpedo boats fires a rocket at the Intrepid.
Image

It takes out two dorsal guns.
Image

Blue responds, firing on the closest EVA drone.
Image

Fighters also move up to engage.
Image

The Imperial Marine Gunner rolls a crazy roll.
Image

They destroy one drone and its guardsmen.
Image

This was the bail roll.  More like fail roll.  :lol:
Image

The Marines also damage another drone.
Image

The Intrepid launches a torpedo wide.
Image

Round Two

The torpedo boats continue to press toward the objective but fail to damage anything in their way.
Image

The guardsmen unload onto the Intrepid but fail to kill anyone.
Image

Overwatch
Image

The Marines kill Captain Atto.
Image

The Intrepid fires on the torpedo boat.
Image

Another guardsman dies.
Image

Oh geez, and a third one dies.
Image

A torpedo hits that torpedo boat (ironic).
Image

These fighters do some damage to the other torpedo boat.
Image

Round Three

The rear torpedo boat returns fire on the Intrepid.
Image

The lead torpedo boat fires on the Chickadee Interceptor, dealing a couple points of damage.
Image

The last guardsman bravely fights on.  "For the President!"
Image

Overwatch + feet showing the drones retreating.
Image

A Marine does a quick no-look execution of the last guardsman.
Image

The fighters keep shooting the torpedo boat.  Worth noting here that in my first Fleet Forum Battle, the torpedo boat was destroyed in one turn.  I upped the armor class but it made it too stronk.  Also I'm forgetting to shoot some of the guns on the Imperial destroyer.
Image

Round 4

The torpedo boat sneaks under the fighters and deals 3 pips of damage to the Valkyrie.
Image

The second boat follows up, damaging the interceptor.
Image

Drones take up redshirt positions.
Image

Overwatch
Image

Imperial ships combine fire against one torpedo boat and get it down to 25% health.
Image

More Overwatch

The Golden Emperor and Warhead land on an isolated base in the Empire's outer fringes.
Emperor Auric: I brought our first new allies to this base to avoid detection.  Though, I suppose you should recognize them.
Image

Warhead: Oh sweet, Brittanians!
Image

Captain Colliedog: My Lords, the 54th Expeditionary is at your service and ready to fight.
Image

Emperor Auric: Excellent.  Warhead, do you have The Book?
Image

Warhead: Yes!  My Visual Dictionary!  The Visual Dictionary I made specifically for conquering Nehellenium!  That Book!  Where did I put that?  Not here?
Image

Warhead: I lost it?! NOOOOOOO!
Image

Emperor Auric: Of course!  How could I be so blind?  Secretary Snape wasn't abducted; he was recovered!  They have the Visual Dictionary on Councilar One!  Alert the Intrepid at once, they must destroy it and recover that book at all costs!
Captain Colliedog: At once, my lord.
Warhead: *cries*
Image

Captain Kodai: You heard the orders!  The kid gloves are off.  Open fire!

Ah sorry!  This is a chat battle so I already ran most of it.  I will come back to fill in the action posts.

Round Five

Imperial ships move up to attack their new target.
Image

This is what happens when I remember the ventral guns.
Image

The torpedo boat heroically redshirts all that damage.
Image

The fighters look menacingly at Councilar One
Image

The remaining torpedo boat comes alongside the Intrepid and fires stuff at it.
Image
Image

A successful missile hit finishes off the other dorsal guns!
Image

Councilar One desperately strains toward the escape vector, 1d6" at a time.
Image

Round Six

Kommander Ken takes over from Falk.
The fighters decide to shoot guns at Councilar One
Image

The damage is mostly absorbed by drones.
Image

The Intrepid manages to get some chip damage on the torpedo boat, too.
Image

Councilar One crests over the Intrepid toward the objective as the torpedo boat comes in to cover its escape.
Image

The torpedo boat fails to damage anything.
Image

A vessel warps into the battlefield!
Image

The corvette flies in, guns blazing, dealing damage to the Intrepid left and right.
Image

"Councilar One, this is Captain Thaddeus of the Sky Shark 2BD.  We are here to cover your escape!"
Image

Counciliar Rocketeers unload from the bow.
Image

"Take down that Interdictor Beam Generator!"
Image

Round Seven

The Intrepid swings round to collide with the Sky Shark.
Image

This also disrupts a Rocketeer.
Image

The fighters continue their barrage as Councilar One crawls past.
Image

The torpedo boat redshirts some of that damage.
Image

Overwatch:
Image

Torpedo boat fires everything at the Valkyrie.
Image

A successful kill!  This is what it's made for.
Image

The corvette continues to fire on the Intrepid.
Image

Rocketeers board the ship.
Image

Another Overwatch (I'm not actually sure these are at the right moments in battle because flickr messes with photo order sometimes):
Image

Round Eight

Scratch takes over from Kommander Ken.
I explain:
He has two fighters
Image

and three marines
Image

He proceeds to blow a hole in the front of Councilar One.  Plot armour protects the crew from getting vented into space.
Image

The Intrepid also contributes a little bit.
Image

A marine attempts to stop the Rocketeers but fails the damage roll.
Image

Councilar One desperately pours on power and makes it 11 inches in one turn.
Image

One Rocketeer stumbles off the ledge but the other kills the exposed marine.
Image

The falling Rocketeer gets killed by a marine's response action.
Image

Overwatch:
Image

The interceptors press the attack.
Image

Intrepid fires everything she's got.
Image

The damage easily overwhelms Councilar One's remaining size points, destroying it and the last torpedo boat.
Image

The Sky Shark is forced to retreat.
Image

Imperial Victory!
Congrats to Falk, Ken, and Scratch!

Epilogue

Marines search the wreckage for the Visual Dictionary.  At first, all they find is a preponderance of greenery.
Image

They look closer.
Image

Aha!  One body lies buried under all that.  Secretary Snape, still holding the Visual Dictionary.  Warhead will be pleased.
Image

Meanwhile, the remaining dignitaries of the Rubrum Crucesignatus impatiently wait on the capital planet of the Council of 500.  They are Mlot Kowalski of Poland, Louise Fort Drake of Space Austria, and Paula Von Oberstein of M-Throne.  They will not like what comes next.
