Battle in the Chat: A visit with the Queen

Postby Theblackdog » Fri Mar 28, 2014 2:35 pm

Above the Britannian Blue Sector world of New Glasgow, a carrier group hovers in orbit, ready to repel attackers.
Image
Admiral Chester, the commander of this fleet, is on edge. Not only is the Queen herself on the planet below, but he's received some disturbing reports about the Blue Sector Admiral...

Fleet Ensign: "Admiral, new contacts detected! Looks like they're Blackdog's ships."

Image

Ensign: "We're picking up a transmission from the Admiral now..."

Image
Vice Admiral Blackdog: "All ships, full speed ahead! We've got to convince the Queen to declare war on Bavaria!"
Admiral Chester: "Stand down, Blackdog! I won't have you re-starting a war that cost us millions of Brittannian lives!"
Blackdog: "Listen to yourself! How can you call yourself a minifig when you argue for peace? I am your commanding officer, and if you do not permit me to visit the Queen, then I will annihilate your fleet and take matters into my own hands."

Chester: "I'd heard you were mad, but I didn't realize how far around the bend you've gone, Admiral. Very well. If you insist on violence, I have a Bavarian Fleet Detachment ready to defend our alliance."
Image
Bavarian Commander: "All ships, vorwarts!"

Blackdog: "So... you insist on treason, then. Too bad. You'll find that I have allies of my own."
Praetorian Fleet Commander: "This is Praetorian Navy Strike Group Delta."
Image
"We have no love for Britannia, but right now Bavaria is our greatest enemy. If you want to go to war with them, we'll gladly assist you."

Image
SIGNUP/TURN ORDER:
Signup for one of the following factions. The factions are listed in turn order.

The Bavarians and Brittannians are allied, and the Bad Dogs and Praetorians are allied.

SPACE BATTLE RULES (in the spoiler):
Spoiler: show
See the Frictionless movement rules to understand how ships move in this game. I usually use lines of bricks to represent the vectors. Friendly capital ships and all fighters can move through one another, but enemy capital ships will collide if their paths intersect. Unless you specifically say you want to ram an enemy, I will avoid collisions whenever possible.
To determine if an attack hits, you roll the weapon's Accuracy against the target's Silhouette value. If the accuracy roll is equal to or higher than the silhouette value, your attack hits.
Hit points are the same thing as wounds: you need to overcome the target's armor value once for each wound you deal.
Gun-type weapons can make response attacks, but cannot fire if your ship is using a special ability on that turn. Missiles can fire while your ship is using its special ability, but can't make response attacks.
Ships can target individual weapons on an enemy ship; all weapons have a Silhouette value of 8, 1 HP, and an Armor value of one less than the ship they are mounted on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Missiles and Torpedoes
When you launch a missile, it does not hit immediately. It hits on the start of your next turn if its chosen target is within the range and firing arc of its launcher; otherwise it misses. Missiles fired within 6" hit on the same turn, but have a -1 accuracy penalty. Torpedoes are miniature spaceships and you control them directly after launch.

Fighters
Fighters and bombers are deployed in squadrons of 3 and stay together after launching. You may only have 2 squadrons on the field and launch one squadron at a time.

Interesting. I'm pretty sure Warhead made 'me' a sector admiral too, so this sector is going to resist the alliance with Bavaria as well. Brittanian League and any type of German faction just don't mix, and as far as I know the Brittanian League is still part of the Immortal Alliance. For now I'll just sit and watch though :omnom:

Bad Dogs -- Theblackdog
Image
The Black Sun moves up and fires on the Schadenfreude. Its railgun does a point of damage (6 remaining), while its missiles are on the way and will hit if the Schadenfreude doesn't evade. Blackdog attempts a feat to make his ship harder to hit, but fails and makes it easier to hit instead.

Image
The Tiger Shark moves up and shoots down one FLEIJA, but the other survives. It fires another missile at the Schadenfreude.

Image
The Wolfhound moves away from the rest of the fleet and charges its main guns.

Brittannians (Quantumsurfer)

Image
The fleet moves towards the Bad Dogs, weapons at the ready.

Image
"Launch all strike craft!"
"Do you mean the fighters or the bombers, sir?"
"All of them!"
"At once? That seems unwise..."
"Don't be silly, what could go wrong?"
*BOOM*
"Ah. That."
The Ark Royal can't launch strike craft until turn 3.

TURN 2
Bavarians (Silverdream)

Image
"Something Something Something Ftaghn!"
The captain of the Schadenfreude attempts to summon demons to attack the missiles closing on his ship, but the demons decide they like the missiles fine. He sends a boarding party to take over the Tiger Shark, and they manage to commandeer its missile launcher and fire a missile at Blackdog's ship.

Image
The FLEIJA warhead detonates, producing a massive sphere of destruction that inflicts a point of damage on both the Tiger Shark and the Black Sun (4 and 3 remaining, respectively) The Verklempt maneuvers to attack...

Verklempt Captain: "Fire the Plasma Wave Cannon!"
Image

Although it's meant for use against fighters, the Verklempt captain's fighting spirit causes the plasma wave cannon to actually inflict damage. Blackdog's ship is down to only 2 HP.

Image
The Verklempt comes to a stop and launches a pair of FLEIJAs (4 left in each launcher).

Image
This time, he leads the targets.

Bad Dogs -- Theblackdog
Image
Blackdog's ship sails through the enemy squadron.

Image
He ignites the maneuvering thrusters, bringing the nose around to get a shot off at the enemy.

Image
The railgun misses, but the Schadenfreude has two more missiles to worry about.

Image
The Tiger Shark shoots down a FLEIJA.

Image
The Wolfhound turns around, bleeds off speed, and unleashes its fully-charged guns on the Schadenfreude... but does only 1 more point of damage.

Praetorians (Dilanski)

Image
Their drones get in range, and deal a point of damage to the Schadenfreude through sheer volume of fire (4 remaining)

Image
Their frigates are still out of range, but they'll be in the thick of it next turn.

Image
The Hex decelerates and launches more drones. The Praetorians can't launch any more until they lose a squadron.
