Not The Right Job For The New Guys

Post by Space Bunny » Sat Apr 11, 2020 5:38 am

Two recruits of the latest blossoming faction in Airadeia, Rogue Fleet, chat amongst themselves in a back alley storage area in the capital city, which has no name due to several disagreements between warring factions and guilds.
Image

Timmy (left): Can you believe it!? We just joined and we're already doing a mission? No training! No nothing!
Damien (right): Yeah, yeah, I bet there's something wrong here. We're new guys, how could we already be doing a mission?
Timmy: Don't forget we have had years of experience. I bet a lot of the other recruits couldn't even compare to us.
Damien: Yeah... have we actually seen any other recruits?
Timmy: Uh... no.
Damien: That's weird, I thought they would've gotten all of the recruits to meet up, get to know each other, if you get me.
Timmy: Of course I get ya. We're like twins! We could even finish each other's sentences!
Damien: I don't think we could finish each other's-
Timmy: Sentences! See, me and you are like twins!
Damien: Sure Timmy, sure.


Image
Another person enters. Claudius Chillingsworth. In his arms, he carries stacks of some black metal.

Claudius: You boys the new guys?
Timmy: Hell yeah!
Claudius: Great, another stupid sidekick. And your names?
Damien: I am Damien, and this is my partner in crime, Timmy.
Timmy: We're twins!
Damien: We're not.
Claudius: Anyway, I couldn't care any more about your relationship. I got a mission for you two. Here in my arms I carry a metal that some others want on the other side of the world, and I'm sure you guys could get it over there safely, correct?
Damien: Yeah, but why are we doing it? Not some people with more training?
Claudius: Cos you're the only ones available. The other two are on another mission.
Damien: Wait a minute! You're telling us that there's only two others in this faction!?
Claudius: Well of course. Did you think there were more of us?
Damien: On the posters it said something like 'Join the 1000 troop army of Rogue Fleet'.
Claudius: Oh yeah, that. Who cares anyway? You boys got a job to do now


Image

Damien: Yeah, one last thing about this job, what is this stuff?
Timmy: Beskor of course! A rare material that you can use to make weapons and armour with!
Claudius: Your friend here seems to know a lot about random stuff, huh?
Damien: Yeah, he's a Book Reeder. A bit of a weird thing to be.
Timmy: Yeah, but I'm also a pilot!
Claudius: You're the pilot? This pair of you is getting weirder by the second. Anyway, there's a speeder out there that can accompany the 2 of you.
Damien: Nice
Claudius: Oh, and don't get your self in trouble with other factions. Just don't

Post by Space Bunny » Sat Apr 11, 2020 8:29 am

At the docks of the capital...
Image

Claudius: There it is. Quite a beauty. Equipped with a machine gun, gunner gun, and 2 rockets. I don't expect you'll be needing to use any of this as you two won't be getting in trouble, will ya?
Damien: No, of course not! You hear that Timmy? Don't go blowing up some stuff cos it's fun.
Timmy: I promise I won't blow up a single thing!
Claudius: You sing he's blown something up in the past?
Damien: Long story short, yes. He has.
Claudius: Please try not doing that while your part of rogue fleet, I already got enough enemies on my back.


Image

Damien: And who are those guys? They've been watching us since we got here.
Claudius: Oh, just people.


Image

Damien: Just people, huh?








Image

Claudius: Just people...

Not The Right Job For The New Guys - Part 3

Post by Space Bunny » Sun Apr 12, 2020 8:16 am

In the midst of the endless skies, Damien and Timmy talk amongst themselves about many things, but only now have they realized they forgot to bring food...
Image

Damien: The food! How could we forget that?
Timmy: I'm hungry.
Damien: Thank you once again for your useful input on this topic. Do you know if anythings near by?
Timmy: If I remember correctly, there should be a small sky dock that people refuel at. Maybe we could find someone there with some food?
Damien: Lets give that a try then



Image
An hour later, they arrive at the docking station.

Damien: Ok Timmy, don't get yourself in trouble. No fights, no nothing. Try to keep talking to a minimum as I know you're not the best when it comes to that kind of stuff. Ok? Ok.
Timmy: Sure thing boss!
Damien: Lets go get some grub.


Image

Damien: How much did you say!?
Man: If you can't pay, you don't get.
Damien: Is there anything you want? Anything we can do for you?
Man: Money, or no money. I ain't needing no services of any kind, so either pay, or don't.
Damien: Ok ok, how much do I have?
Damien searches his pockets for anything. He finds nothing
Man: You're getting nothing then.
Damien: C'mon! We're starving out here.
Man: Yeah sure you are, then how's your companion gonna fight if he's got no energy?
Damien: Oh, we don't want to get into any fights.
Man: Sure you don't. Then what's that?


Image
Timmy has begun a fight with a blue coat

Damien: For fuck sake, Timmy! Can you wait here a sec?


Image
Damien starts to run towards the fight, but is stopped by a bluecoat soldier

Bluecoat: No going past this point without ID.
Damien: The names Damien, now let me through! My friends started a fight with your friend!
Bluecoat: Hey! We're not letting you get involved in that fight. Stay away! Keep your distance!
Damien: Guess I gotta use the rockets
Bluecoat: What did you say?
Damien: Don't worry about it


Image
With haste, Damien runs to their speeder craft. Once inside he pulls the cockpit window over him.

Damien: Lets see how well I can remember to pilot one of these...


Image

Bluecoat Captain: What's that guy doing?
Bluecoat: I think he's trying to fire a missile at that brawl over there!
Bluecoat Captain: What're you doing then!? Get shooting!


Image
But just as they say that, Damien's already fired a rocket at the fight between Timmy and a soldier


Image

Rocket: Boom! Baba lada boomtastic boom! BOOOOOOM! Crash! EXPLOSION!
Timmy is flung off the edge of the platform by the explosion, and Damien kicks the acceleration pedal on the speeder


Image
Just in time, Damien swoops under Timmy to catch him from mid air

Timmy: Jee wizz! Thanks Damien!
Damien: Let's get outta here Timmy, and I don't think we'll be coming back


Image

Timmy: That went well!
Damien: What the hell do you mean!? You started a fight with that guy! Why?
Timmy: Well you see they asked me for my ID, and I didn't really want to








Image

Bluecoat Captain: Who the hell was that? I want a full report on this case and have it handed to the admiral immediately after you've written it. Don't forget to miss out the part of us firing back at them, make it seem like we didn't want to harm anyone, ok?









Image

???: Who are those guys?
???: They're the guys with the Beskor. I want my ship prepared immediately. Don't let them get out of our sight.

A well-worn table makes an excellent BrikWars background, back in the childhood days the main battleground was the bedroom floor!

Not The Right Job For The New Guys - Part 4

Post by Space Bunny » Sat Apr 18, 2020 5:02 am

Image

Damien: Timmy, this is it. We've almost completed the job, but not yet. Don't screw it up, ok Timmy? Don't kill anyone, don't shoot anyone, don't do anything. Yeah, just don't do anything Timmy. Ok?
Timmy: Sure-io, dadio!
Damien: Don't call me Dadio ever again.
Timmy: Sure thing!


Image

Damien: Hello! You must be the client of this Beskor delivery, am I correct?
Lord Sniffius: Yes, we'll take it off your hands. You may call me Lord Sniffius, not that I expect us to ever meet again.
Damien: Well I'm Damien, and this is my partner Timmy. We're both from Rogue Fleet, as you may know.
[b]Lord Sniffius:[/b] Yes, I've heard of you lot. Anyway, I'll be taking that Beskor off your hands.


Image
But just before Damien hands the Beskor, Timmy taps him on the shoulder.

Timmy: There's those people here.
Damien: I don't need your shenanigans right now Timmy. We've almost got the mission complete.
Timmy: But the people are here
Damien: Where then?


Image

Timmy: There
Damien: Wait, what's that?


Image
Damien goes back to the conversation with the Lord.

Damien: You do know that there's some people on this ship?
Lord Sniffius: No, I didn't.
Damien: Well they're just over there


Image

Damien: Just there. And there's also dead people now?


Image
As Damien looks at this, Lord Sniffius is handed a weapon from behind his back

Lord Sniffius: How peculiar. Now if you just stay there looking for a few minutes then-


Image

Timmy: He's got a sword!!!


Image

Damien: What are you on-


Image
Lord Sniffius suddenly smashes his sword against the beskor that stands in the way of him and Damien

Damien: What the hell was that about man!?


Image
In response, Damien throws the Beskor, knocking the lord back.

Lord Sniffius: Fire at him!


Image
A pistol is whipped out by the other guy, and is quickly put to purpose, with a bullet flying out.


Image
Out of nowhere, Timmy suddenly becomes a redshirt!? He makes a magnificent jump in front of Damien, taking the shot for him


Image

Damien: TIMMY!


Image
The lord swings his sword at the enraged Damien

Lord Sniffius: Now you're going down with him!


Image
But the lord doesn't anticipate Damiens bonus for being enraged, giving him enhanced dexterity, which allows him to slide quickly under the sword


Image
Damien then pushes himself up, and charges towards the guy that shot Timmy.


Image
He jumps...


Image
...Tackles...


Image
... and pulls the pistol away from the guy...


Image
... All just in time to shoot the approaching lord.


Image
Bleaugh (sound that heads make when being chopped off)


Image
With haste, Damien runs to help Timmy

Damien: Timmy! Don't give up on me Timmy! We'll get you out of here.
Timmy: The- The- The bes-
Damien: You are the best Timmy. You're gonna get through this.


Image
Damien get's them into the ship, and ready to leave.

Damien: Timmy, you good up there?
Timmy: You for- you forgot- you forgot the bes-
Damien: Now's not the time to waste your breath Timmy


Image

Damien: We just gotta get through this first
