[Anno] Her Return

Post by Space Bunny » Sun Feb 09, 2020 9:24 am

A battle between Minaglacia and Blacktron leaves a robot - Giles to be exact - on the ground, destroyed... Or so it seemed. A group from Techno-corp, a faction based off a technocratic system of governing, come to collect his body.

Image

Scientist λ: He's not too bruised up. I believe we'll still be able to get the information out of him.

Troop: Ok sir.

A sudden beep from one of the troops wrist pads goes off

Troop: I think there's someone else with us


Image

Scientist λ: Keep an eye out, I think they're here.

Troop: Who? I only see one on are radars.

Scientist λ: Well, that'll make it easy.


Image

???: Techno corp. We meet again.

Scientist λ: Where are you're friends?

???: Do you think the MAD MAGE needs companions to help her?

Scientist λ: Of course, what a preposterous idea. Well, what're you waiting for?


Image

The MAD MAGE quickly jumps and slices one of the troops. The body falls and trips up another


Image

Scientist λ: Pfft, pathetic. Drones, fire at will!


Image

The MAD MAGE is quickly taken down by a barrage of bullets.

Guns: Pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew


Image

Scientist λ: Come on, let's get out of here and start work on this robot







Image

MAD MAGE: Seems that they're tougher than I thought.

I have no idea what's going on, but I approve of the sudden and wanton violence displayed here.

[Anno] Her Return - Part 2

Post by Space Bunny » Sun Mar 01, 2020 11:06 am

Moria of the hooded crusaders discusses with Maddy, the captain of the "Evader", a local transport to get you to one edge of the galaxy to the other - usually used by smugglers to get through blockades.

Image
Moria: You sure you can keep me safe as we try and get to the lost sector?
Maddy: How many times have I been stopped? None. Except for those 15 other times. Whats the worst that can happen?
Moria: I believe I'm being hunted down by Minaglacia for some reason, so I wouldn't be surprised if there was an attack on this ship.
Maddy: Pfft, I've been hunted down by Blacktron for YEARS, and they still haven't found me. You'll be fine.
Moria: Sure...


Image
Unknown to them though, some one else is hunting Moria...

Maddy: Wtf's that?


Image

Officer: We are the Blacktron Empire. Hand over your traitor now and we will be on our way


Image

Maddy: Quick, quick! Prepare another jump to hyperspace!
Red shirt: We can't jump to hyperspace this low to the ground!
Maddy: Well let's hope the God's of plot convenience help us!


Image

Officer: It's pointless to try, you're stuck here now! Fire the cannon!


Image

Gun: Peeee...


Image

Gun: ...eeeeeew
One of the side engines is knocked off, crashing the "Evader"






Image

Moria gets up after the crash
Moria: This couldn't get any worse.


Image

MAD MAGE: Well, today's not your most luckiest of days
Moria: What do you want?
MAD MAGE: You're carrying something valuable on this ship, aren't you?
Moria: I don't know what you're talking about.
MAD MAGE: Oh just shut up. Let's just duel this out to see who gets it.






Image

Troop: What was that? Somethings gone wrong with this plan. I think there are too many variables we haven't considered. Well, the fight must go on. Charge!












Image

Captain Thaddeus Eugen: What have we gotten our selves involved in?



Forum battle very soon...

[Anno] Her Return - Part 4

Post by Space Bunny » Fri Mar 06, 2020 2:47 pm

In the dark canyons of the printer valley, Kevin and his robot, C∆L-V1N, travel to a area furthest from all civilization....
Image

C∆L-V1N: Are we there yet?
Kevin: For the last time, no! Can you see anything nearby? No. We're in the middle of nowhere. We are not there yet.
C∆L-V1N: Are you sure about that?
Kevin: Yes. I can see why they thought of you as a failed version of Giles
C∆L-V1N: Well, he's dead now, so I'm better than him.
Kevin: Sure, now just shut up.
C∆L-V1N: Sure, if it would make you happy.








In the middle of one of the valleys, Kevin and C∆L-V1N arrive at the Han Khan's site - The place many collectible cards
Image

Kevin: We need your help. We are in a time of desperate need and no leader. It's just me and a few others making decisions for this "empire", and currently one of our squadrons has gone 'rogue' on a moon, thinking they can take out the leader of the Hooded Crusaders for us. In my opinion, they aren't going to get very far.
Jannette: So, how can you help us.
Kevin: You supply us with occasional support and we supply you - and maybe your allies - with high tech weaponry. Sound like a plan?


Image

Jannette: Well, I want one more thing from you.
Kevin: Go on
Jannette: Where your 'rogue' soldiers are is a gold disc. It's currently in the hands of Moria, the leader of The Hooded Crusaders, and it is of value to us and some others, so if you can supply us with that, it's a deal.
Kevin: I see, I will try.
Jannette: I see today being a big day moving forwards

[Anno] Her Return - Part 5

Post by Space Bunny » Sun Mar 08, 2020 9:41 am

Image

Kevin: C∆L-V1N! Stop slowing me down, we don't have much time!
C∆L-V1N: Where are we going though?
Kevin: I've already told you, can't you just remember anything? We're getting close to a Techno-Corp science facility, and There's been rumors that that's where we'll find Giles.
C∆L-V1N: Do we really need Giles though?
Kevin: Yes. He's a one of a kind robot AND if Techno-Corp hack into him soon, they'll find out everything. And I mean everything.
C∆L-V1N: Sure... I bet I could've been just as good.
Kevin: Sure you could.


Image

Guard: Oi! No coming past this point unless you have permission from Scientist-∆
Kevin: Of course I have permission from scientist... Delta?
Guard: If that is so, we shall message him immediately for conformation.
Kevin: Oh, that won't be needed. I am a loyalty officer, and you don't want to get into any trouble, do you?
Guard: Sorry 'Loyalty officer', but there's no such thing as that in Techno-Corps hierarchy.
Kevin: Fuck.


Image
Kevin proceeds to pull his hammer out, and smash the head off one of the gaurds


Image
And cuts the other in half with his sword


Image

C∆L-V1N: Was it necessary to kill them?
Kevin: I don't see why not
C∆L-V1N: Well how are we going to get through that door?
Kevin: I didn't bring you for no reason did I? You're going to get that door open one way or another.


Image
When attempting to use the control pad, the room turns a sudden red.

C∆L-V1N: There seems to be some sort of lock down. It's as if they know we're here.
Kevin: Is there any other way to get to him?
C∆L-V1N: Well there is another way, but I think there'll be a few troops
Kevin: Eh, not too bad.


Image
When they get to the other area, there doesn't seem to be anyone.

C∆L-V1N: Doors open. This was easier than thought.
Kevin: Hmm... Somethings not right here. Prepare for anything once we get through here...


Image
Upon going through the door, they find some unwanted foes

Kevin: I knew it! Something wasn't right about this!


Image

Scientist-∆: Indeed. We weren't going to let you get away that easily.


Image

Kevin: Where's Giles?
Scientist-∆: Oh he's here, in that robot.
Kevin: What is that?
Scientist-∆: It's the Durable Outlasting Tactical Suit. We use it to contain individuals.
Kevin: Well I'm not leaving without him.
Scientist-∆: Oh, is that true?


Image
Kevin smashes the 2 guards against the wall.

Kevin: These guys are easy! You got anything more challenging?


Image
Scientist-∆: Oh, sure I do. FIRE!


Image
The Durable Outlasting Tactical Suit fires one of it's torpedoes at Kevin...


Image
... but it fails and kills the Scientist-∆


Image
Kevin leaps towards the Durable Outlasting Tactical Suit and smashes his hammer at it.


Image
Fueled with ossumness, Kevin smashes straight through the mech, destroying it in one hit.


Image

Kevin: Oh shit! I broke Giles! Uh, guess this'll have to do for our leader.

[Anno] Her Return - Part 6

Post by Space Bunny » Wed Mar 18, 2020 3:36 pm

In a Minaglacia base, located on the edge of the lawless sector, Kevin and C∆L-V1N meet the other leaders of the decaying 'empire' that Minaglacia is. The constant change of leaders is not giving them the best reputation among the other faction.

Image
Captain Solomon: So you actually got it? You got Giles?
Kevin: Well, I technically did, but he's a bit useless in the state I found him in.
Captain Jane: What do you have planned?
Kevin: I haven't really thought that far ahead yet.
Cpt Solomon: We could put him in the display hall with the rest of the artifacts!
C∆L-V1N: We have a display hall?
Cpt Soloman: Not yet! But it's never to late to start right?


Image
Cpt Jane: Solomon, you aren't actually helping us. I actually may have a plan. We need to get some sort of robot with the capacity to hold AI that's in Giles, and I have my eye on C∆L-V1N.
Kevin: Whats your plan with him?
Cpt Jane: Me and the IT department have been working on a way of transferring a large amount of data from one robot to another in a matter of seconds, so with C∆L-V1N we could actually use him as a vessel to support Giles for the time being.
Cpt Solomon: Well this doesn't explain one thing to me; Why did some completely random strangers want Giles, and who else could want him?
Cpt Jane: That's something I don't have the answer to, Solomon
C∆L-V1N: Is this really my fate?
Kevin: It'll be the most useful you've ever been Calvin.
C∆L-V1N: I suppose this is my fate.


Image
Captain Jane brings in the contraption and insists C∆L-V1N to sit on it. With no other choice, C∆L-V1N accepts.
Kevin: You ready Calvin?
C∆L-V1N: Let me take one last look at my frie-
Kevin: Flick it!
A few bursts and flames come out of the machine and C∆L-V1N suddenly sits up straight
C∆L-V1N/Giles: Downloading Software... 20%... 50%... 70%... 90%... 99%... Software Downloaded.
Cpt Jane: It worked!
C∆L-V1N/Giles: Run! Escape while you still can!
Cpt Solomon: What's happening?
Cpt Jane: I don't know! Giles, what's happening?
C∆L-V1N/Giles: I saw... her...


Image
A hologram begins to play from C∆L-V1N's eye. It shows a video of Giles and... Captain Roach?
Giles: Roach? What's happening?
Cpt Roach: ...
Giles: Roach!?
Roach disappears


Image
C∆L-V1N/Giles: Run! She's coming!
Kevin: Something truly confusing is happening here
Cpt Jane: What're we going to do?


Image
Kevin: Find out what's happening.


















Image
???: Make sure that they don't find it.

Post by Space Bunny » Mon Mar 23, 2020 11:15 am

Image
Kevin: Can you explain it to me again?
Cpt Jane: basically, we know what specific base that the video was recorded at. Apparently there was something before Giles started recording it, so we're still rummaging through his database.
Kevin: So where was it at?
Cpt Jane: A mining base we have, but it was recently attacked by the "locals", but I have my doubts. I think someone else was there, trying to find this information before us... or stop us finding it.



Image
They arrive at the mining base, wearing stealth armor to make sure that any thermal scanners can't find them

Kevin: Anything yet?
Cpt Jane: Nothing. No evidence of her being here.
Kevin: This all seems a bit shifty. You checked anywhere else? or is this it?
Cpt Jane: Well, what else would we find?
Kevin: Why don't we just get going. It's obvious that it was just an error


Image
1???: Don't think you'll be going anywhere anytime soon.
Kevin: Who are you?
2???: It is I, Ooyama!
1???: Shut up Ooyama! You've blown our cover!
Ooyama: Well don't worry! I will get the Bikku police force to help us, Space Bunny!
Space Bunny: Ooyama! Shut it!
Kevin: Wait... are you Space Bunny?
Space Bunny: Yeah, but we're not going to let you go anywhere. You've already found too much that you might make more plot holes.
Kevin: Plot wholes?
Space Bunny: Never mind. This is beyond your comprehension
Kevin: What was even here?
Ooyama: An artifact that would lead you straight to the current battle that your troops are fighting in, which would lead you too-
Space Bunny: SHUT IT! Don't let them know what we specifically came here to make them not know! Seriously Ooyama, even though you've donated me that sick ass mech, it doesn't mean you can tell every person what's happening!
An argument between the 2 begins to grow louder and louder.
Kevin: Let's get out of here

This is the events straight after the battle for gold and splendor....
Image
Cpt Jannette: I wan't this ship searched up and down! Don't leave anything unseen! It's gotta be here somewhere
Soldiers: Alright, we're on it
The soldiers then begin to rummage through the ship, throwing items left, right, and centre.

Image
One of the soldiers comes back with a disc. Golden and reflective, quite like a mirror
Soldier: Is this of any use?
Cpt Jannette No, we don't need any more mirrors in Han Khan. You can put it away.

Image
But just as they're about to put it away, Jannette sees someone in the reflection... A warhead shard?
Cpt Jannette: What's that? Why's there someone on the other side?
Zayin Shard: Touch the mirror...
Cpt Jannette: Did it just say... touch the mirror?
Zayin Shard: Touch the mirror...
Cpt Jannette: Why would I listen to a man on the other side of a golden mirror? This is kind of sketchy, not gonna lie.
Zayin Shard: Just touch the fucking mirror, for christ sake! Can't you just do a simple thing like that?
Cpt Jannette: Jeez, calm down. Why would I touch it?
Zayin Shard: JUST TOUCH IT
Cpt Jannette: Sure...
She leans in...

Image
MAD MAGE: Don't do it! It's not worth it!
Cpt Jannette: What? Are you going to?
MAD MAGE: Yes, but I know the consequences, I've been looking for this for years now, so trust me
Cpt Jannette: If you want to

Image
MAD MAGE: Here goes nothing

Post by Space Bunny » Thu Mar 26, 2020 10:49 am

Jannette, captain of a Han Khan legion, lies in a sort of trench, blood dripping from her torso
Image
Jannette: What... what have I done?


Image
Jane and Kevin appear, seeming to be tired after days of running
Kevin: What happened?
Jannette: I screwed up
Jane: What did you do?
Jannette: I let her touch it.
Kevin: Who? What?


Image
Jannette: She told that she knew what she was doing, the mad mage of course. I let her touch it, the mirror. She said something under her breath and then they merged together.
Kevin: Who?
Jannette: The skeleton man. He merged with her. He came out of the mirror and they sort of became one. At that point, they didn't need us. They slaughtered all of us. Except me. They thought I was dead, and when they were leaving they whispered something under their breath. 'Now it's Legotovia's turn.' and something about 'Roach'. This doesn't mean anything to me, but it may help you.
Kevin: Roach?
Jannette: Yes... what, do you know them?
Jane: Did they say anything else about Roach?
Jannette: Something about Blacktron. Is that useful?
Kevin: Well I know where we'll be going next. Let's get you somewhere safe.
