Junk Wars

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Lead Vehicle: Vehicle 2, there's a truck up ahead. Im pulling over!
Vehicle 2: Lead, that trap is so obvious, do NOT stop!
Image20210116_183553 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
After some arguing over the radio, the vehicles stop and the scavengers disembark to investigate

Image20210116_183616 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Scavenger: This is a nice truck. Must have run out of fuel
Image20210116_183837 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Having defeated the scavengers, the Red clad militia inspect their loot

Image20210116_184911 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The commotion attracts locals, Wildmen lurk in the woods behind the unsuspecting attackers

Krazny: WILDMEN!!!!

Another painted savage bolts through the trucks and hacks a guy down with a sword

Image20210116_185533 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
A panicked mage fires a bolt and misses his target

Image20210116_185618 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Instead hitting the truck and causing a trash-avalanche, killing the wildman

Image20210116_185641 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Krazny Mage: All clear!
Image20210116_185756 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
BLAM
Suddenly, one of the scavengers, thought dead, shoots the mage with one of his fallen comrade's guns.

A Scav truck from another crew rolls up

Image20210116_190313 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Wildman runs away

Image20210116_190435 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Scavs loot the weapons

Image20210116_190454 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip: Well well, what do we have here. Wildmen ruin your little ambush, Krazny shit?
Image20210116_190505 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip: Damn, they killed a lot of you bastards didnt they
Image20210116_190526 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara: What? this is my truck!, The guys in red ambushed us! I'm not with them!
Image20210116_190659 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Blue: Guess we'll figure out who's who later. into the truck you go!
Image20210116_191847 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Scavengers seize the working vehicle and bring her back to their camp. Poorly constructed buildings, machinery and equipment are littered all over the area. In true scavenger fashion, these people survive off whatever junk they can find

Image20210116_191853 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
They pull into the heavily guarded compound

Image20210116_191946 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The supply truck is backed into a rudimentary garage where they start looting the parts out of the trailer

Image20210116_192030 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara is let out of the truck, and after considering her story, the other Scavengers decide to let her go, on the condition that she do some work for them
Rip: Alright. You're no Red. You can go, but we're taking the truck

Mara: Wait, How am I supposed to get out of here then? my vehicle is toast, I need that truck!

Rip: Hmmm. I've got an idea. get in the truck come with me.
Image20210116_193110 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip: This stretch is our territory, and to control it, we need vehicles. If not this one, then we're going to need another.
Image20210116_193424 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip: So we're going to a Mechanic, guy's name is Frank. he works with us. He makes vehicles and we arm them.
You'll help him make some rigs and after your part is done, you can go.
Image20210116_193435 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The truck pulls up to the scrapyard
Rip: And don't think about taking off with this truck, we fitted it with a tracker and an explosive, try to take off without fulfilling your side of the deal, and we'll blow you sky high
Image20210116_200314 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Frank the Mechanic comes out to greet them.
Rip: Frank, you know how you said you needed help? Well this is Mara, she's gonna help you make a rig or two.. do a good job
Image20210116_200453 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Frank brings out a bike for Rip to take back to his compound

Image20210116_200529 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip takes off...
Rip: Remember what I told you!

Frank: So you know what I do?
Mara: You build vehicles... and Rip turns them into War machines?
Frank: Pretty much.. But I also scavenge, they get anything weapon related, and they let me keep everything else.

Get the truck, and we unload your scrap first..
Image20210116_200825 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Image20210116_200900 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
They dump all the various crap out of the truck

Image20210116_201106 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Frank piles the junk in his scrapyard

Image20210116_201215 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
After working for some time, they set out looking for more scraps, Heading for Mara's wreck

Image20210116_201329 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
They make several trips, taking the most valuable and useful stuff first, and coming back for the extras later. Always on the lookout for Rival Scavenger bands, or these hostile "Reds" Gang that have appeared in the region

Image20210116_201329 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Image20210116_201440 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Image20210116_201551 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Back at the scrapyard, the two work on making a usable vehicle frame out of the scraps of Mara's old vehicle

Image20210116_202740 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Once the frame is usable, they take it to Rip's crew.

Image20210116_203106 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The frame is delivered, Rip's Crew pay them in the form of some leftover useful parts, and they go back to work

Image20210116_203112 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara notices in the back of their work area, Rip's crew is hoarding weapons, and that Frank's garage never seems to have heavy weapons in it.

Image20210116_203124 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Frank: We'll be back with another tommorow!
Image20210116_204243 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
On their way back, they come across another scav convoy

Image20210116_204710 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Occupants of the vehicle immediately attack, its more of the Reds!

Image20210116_204734 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
They give chase

Image20210116_204800 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Image20210116_204900 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara: Shit!, don't you have any f**ing weapons here?!
Frank: Hold on!
Image20210116_204940 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Frank: Shit!
Image20210116_205012 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Leading this group of Militia is a suspiciously well equipped soldier.

Image20210116_205457 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Frank: Found them!, catch!
Image20210116_205535 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Image20210116_205631 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
URGH!

Image20210116_205714 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip's truck rushes to the rescue

Image20210116_205737 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
The Commando looking guy gestures and several of his crew pile onto the lighter vehicle and take off

Image20210116_205830 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
One gets left behind

Image20210116_205926 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr

Image20210116_210042 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
AAAIIIEEEE

Image20210116_210205 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip: F**king Krazny assholes! looks like they left behind some pretty awesome loot! What is that?
Scav: Looks like parts of an Imperial fighter boss!
Image20210116_210218 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara: Yeah we ran across them on the way back, and they chased us.
Image20210116_210323 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip: There was more?
Image20210116_210402 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
A bunch of banging and crashing can be heard coming from the scrap pile
Mara: Yeah there was like 3 or 4 others. One of them looked like a professional soldier. They bolted when you guys were coming
Image20210116_210426 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip: Well, whatever the case, We'll take this off your hands, and we'll consider the debt settled. Come back with the truck and we'll take off the tracker. and you can be on your way.
Image20210116_210448 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Frank approaches from the back
Rip: Everything OK Frank?
Image20210116_210501 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
He acknowledges

Image20210116_210514 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara: I wonder where this came from, it looks like the internals of a fighter, but just the valuable stuff
Scav: I see turbines, and computers, but what's with the big body housing?
Image20210116_210527 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara: That would be the engine..
Image20210116_210927 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Rip's crew takes control of the truck, and Mara goes to say her goodbyes to Frank

Mara: So you don't get any of that good loot huh? stuff from the trailer?

Frank: I wouldn't worry about it... I got.. Something else
Image20210116_211343 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
Mara is about to leave, but the notices something shining. and She realizes Frank was hiding something when she came in, Chrome Crystals.
Dude.. what do they Mine at Rip's compound?... have you been.. stealing from Rip?
Frank: I can take care of myself.
Image20210116_211535 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
After arguing with him and getting nowhere. Annoyed, Mara takes the truck and leaves. Leaving him to his business and returning the truck to Rip to have the traps removed
