[RK20] Attack on the shadows

Post by Space Bunny » Sat Feb 01, 2020 11:49 am

After the battle between forces of good and evil, Giles awakes in a trench

POWER: ON


A troop leans down towards Giles.

Troop: Sir, you were shot. We don't know who it was. Do you have any records?

Giles: SCANNING: NO RECORDS

Troop: Who would you guess?

Giles: I believe there were some new people, am I correct?

Troop: Yes, they wore the blacktron logo.

Giles: Hmm... Do you know where they are?

Troop: No, we had to evacuate the area after you fell.

Giles: Let's get back to the main ship.



Image

On the Minaglacia capital ship

Giles: Any more information?

Troop: Well, we located their forces and they're oddly close to the lost sector. What do you plan?

Giles: We need to negotiate with these new people. And if not, then we will destroy them, and if we win, we'll take it onto their capital ship.

Troop: Ok, we'll be there in a matter of days.

Giles: That's fine, just get us there.






Image

Blacktron troops line up on the edge of the landing site. Lord Regan, their leader, walks towards Minaglacia's army.

Lord Regan: What do you want, you miners? You can have this planet if you want. It's useless to us.

Giles: I've come to negotiate an alliance.

Lord Regan: An alliance!? We're not a charity! We're not going to let you take are troops to your petty wars.

Giles: Petty wars! What do you mean?

Lord Regan: You are just a mining company. Wars aren't what you should be in. You should get back to mining.

Giles: Ridiculous. We are fighting for territory and gold!

Lord Regan: Don't you think you've already got enough gold?

Giles: I've had enough of this. We have gotten far, and we're not turning back. Legotovia's just within our grasp.

Lord Regan: Legotovia!? Is that what you're fighting for? Legotovia?

Giles: Yes. It holds great power which we could use.

Lord Regan: There's no way you will ever beat them. You're just a mining company.

Giles: Does it look like that anymore? Indicates to the army behind him. No it doesn't. Times have changed. The war has started. A new era.

Lord Regan: A war you say? He points towards Giles. Charge my army!


Let the battle begin!

TURN 1

Blacktron - Me

Image
The troops move forwards into position


Image
Lord Regan, their hero, makes a robot wall thing to protect his troops
FEAT SUCCESSFUL



Minaglacia - Friend (But not for long)

Image
The gunship attempts to kill the mech, but a crit fail ends up with the gun becoming broken


Image
The mech attempts to fire back, but it's guns use is too high for them



TURN 2

Blacktron

Image
The troops begin to move into formation



Minaglacia

Image
Giles slices 3 naked troops with his staff. He seems like a problem! (Also first blood!)


Image
The troops climb onto the and for easier movement. (They don't realize that that's what the gunships for)


Image
Some other troops move into the corner.


Image
The stupid regulars think they can pierce my mechs armo- Wait what!? They did! Damn


Image
And the gunship moves backwards



TURN 3

Blacktron

Image
Some troops attempt to shoot Giles, but he uses his reaction feat to bounce the lakers off his shiny armor.
FEAT SUCCESSFUL


Image
A group of overwhelming troops manages to kill 1 troop.


Image
Lord Regan throws his laser sword, but it never comes back...
FEAT FAILED


Image
The mech tries to shoot at the tank but this use rating is too overwhelming!


Image
Some other troops move up to help, but are out range.


Image
Some other troops kill a single troop...


Image
...But one of them crit fails and is knocked 10'' back.


Image
He lands on a mysterious chest. But that doesn't seem to bother him


Image
And my engineer gets to work...



Minaglacia

Image
Minaglacia's engineer made a turret!


Image
The tank and troops in the gunship attempt to take down the mech but fail. Pathetic fools.

TURN 4

Blacktron - Me

Image
Turret? Pfft. How about shoulder mounted machine gun?


Image
The regulars of Blacktron attempt to shoot down the tank, but only 1 can reach.


Image
The troops that stayed in the corners since the start come out, evenly spaced so Giles can't kill of of them with one swing.


Image
Someone kills a troop ( :mystery: )


Image
The rest of the regulars and mech attempt to shoot down the gunship, but armor of 3D10 is just too much.


Image
And the engineer gets back to work... with 10" of area!? Wow.



Minaglacia

Image
The engineer's built a gun. But it's a better gun


Image
The gunship moves into a position where it can shoot at that nasty mech.


Image
But instead it shoots the regulars. But one survives! I wonder what he'll get up to later...


Image
Oh looks like he's dead as well now


Image
And Giles get's himself into some cover



TURN 5

Blacktron

Image
The engineer builds himself a palace? He's a man of style


Image
Lord Regan uses his feat to give himself an extra robot leg. Now he can hop further than he used to be able to!
FEAT SUCCESSFUL


Image
The rest of the troops move forwards!



Minaglacia

Image
Wait what!? They blew his arm off! This is ridiculous!


Image
Well at least the tank's engines broke, dealing it 1 damage


Image
Giles uses a feat to destroy a wall! Jeez, I spent a while on this terrain.
FEAT SUCCESSFUL
Oh and then he kills a troop. Good on you Giles.


Image
Oh and the his friend helps. Another troop down.


Image
Well, when trying to use the engineers crappy gun, it just breaks. But it still deals a bit of damage to someone



TURN 6

Blacktron

Image
One of the troops tries to shoot, but falls over. I knew we should've invested in better training.


Image
But wait! What's that mech doing (in this extremely dark picture)? Is he grabbing onto the gunship?


Image
Is Space Bunny moving Lord Regan to the mech? What's going on?


Image
He seems to be supercharging it!


Image
And with the hero's help, the mech slams the gunship to the ground, stopping it from moving!
FEAT SUCCESSFUL


Image
And they also dealt damage to the tank!



Minaglacia

Image
The tank responds by blasting one of the troops.


Image
Giles, in response to this feat performed, takes his banner off and uses it as a massive spear.
FEAT SUCCESSFUL


Image
He manages to kill all of the squads troops with one fantastic blow!

TURN 7

Blacktron

Image
It seems that the mech had finally found its place in the earth, and was killed with response actions.


Image
This guy comes and he's the engineer with his fortress of DOOOOOOm.


Image
The troops deal a plentiful amount of damage to the tank.


Image
Lord Regan, with his new found gun, shoots at those damn hangar bay dudes, but misses.


Image
The engineer attempts to kill Giles, but he wasn't trained for assassination jobs.



Minaglacia

Image
Giles continues to run, getting closer to Lord Regan.


Image
The troops in the gunship attempt to shoot Regan, but he seems too cool to kill.


Image
The tank kills another troop. It will be out of the picture soon though...


Image
Oh and the engineer built another gun, with the gun that was previously destroyed


Image
The troops move into their final positions. They know that what's about to happen is inevitable.



TURN 8

Blacktron

Image
Suddenly, the engineer kills Giles! An unexpected twist.


Image
The tank is finally destroyed with an anticlimactic pop of the top.


Image
Lord Regan attempts to kill these cretins in the hangar bay. He successfully kills them but...


Image
...There is another



Minaglacia

Image
The engineer comes out with his latest model: The tank turret tower!



TURN 9

Blacktron

Image
But he sadly does not get to love it for very long, as the meanies of blacktron shoot him down


Image

Lord Regan marches down to meet his opponents


Minaglacia

Image
Lord Regan is killed! How could this happen!?


Image
It is getting closer to their final stand...


TURN 10

Blacktron

Image
All their troops fire all shots (except the ones in the hangar as we forgot them)


Image
Only one dies as cover seems to exist and stop people being killed.

Giles lays on the floor. He feels only satisfaction, as if he's completed his job

Image

Giles: I think they're right. And they probably are. If we can't beat some no-good hooligans, then how would we beat Legotovia? They're mysterious forces have already overwhelmed the Ottomans, and they have alliances far more powerful than we could ever have.
So, what's next? Legotovia is too powerful, and we - us miners and workers - are no match for anyone. I suppose we've joined the fight at the wrong time. Everyone's forces are fresh and clean, but others have just been destroyed.
I suppose we'll just have to wait. Wait until the time's right.
And anyway, this war has only just started. More armies coming out of hiding by the second. The Orsator Contingency, Ottomans, Ayamani, and many more.

POWER=OFF

Hmm...

Fun: 16 While this was an interesting fight, it was a little disjointed and the action was a little hard to follow at times.
Violence: 9 Lots of people died, but no explosions.
Photos: 6 There sure were a lot of photos, but the quality was not good, and the lighting left something to be desired. Mind you, if they're fighting on a desert moon at twilight, then the lighting kind of makes sense, but it was hard to see what was going on sometimes.
Writing: 9 While the photo quality was iffy, the actual writing was decent and helped to explain what was happening.
Story: 10 While a little hard to follow, there is a decent plot here with good character development and background. The idea that a group of former miners are trying to enact a takeover of Legotovia only to be brought up short after one battle makes for a decent read. I especially like the interaction between the two leaders.

Fun : 16 - Good read and introduction, clear positioned motives of the factions.
Violence : 8 - Good effects and use of gameplay - especially the use of Mechaniks and their Konstructions.
Photography : 7 - It feels like some less pictures with better angles would`ve helped to follow the action better.
Writing : 8 - Good follow-up storyline, fits into the Anno-canon well.

Story : 9 - Fun to read, fits this year´s theme "New beginnings" best, I think.
