alright team. the war has begun. we are the only thing here to protect this world from the scortching ruins that oda has in mind. so heres the recap;
after a bit of clearing our heads nin and i went to meet up with reina and draigo who were waiting for us. afterwards we met will and the others at the beachside and loaded onto motochika's boat after aquiring some new armor that should prove useful. for a brief minute there was a calm before the storm. then once we docked on our destination all hell broke loose. cannons firing from the fleet. soldiers storming the beaching. and a seemingly endless sea of monsters erupting from the depths of the forest as if they were waiting for us. everyone launched into battle. will immediatly heading to meet up with kazou at his key point. nin the siblings and i dove underground to avoid too much confrontation and losing time. meanwhile above ground suki's team took heavy casualties, but still managed to pull through and beat back the first attack wave. and after doing the same will and kazou went and met up with masamune to start launching a full offensive and drive them back. that portion was a success untill they came upon the first city meaning they have to cinatin the area before moving forward or risk getting flanked. by that point suki managed to catch up to them and all teams surrounded the city as a strike team came in and swept bombs over the city flushing out the monsters hiding within. elsewhere, upon arriving to our destignated spot my team rose from below and immediatly dove headlong into the portal where we were met with a very strange place. dark purpleish skies, scortched pitch black earth. its as if the sky itself had been set ablaze. not having much time we split into two groups. nin came with me as we moved to take down the first tower and reina and her brother went for the other. nin and i encountered the first general; oichi oda. nobunaga oda's "dead" sister./ the very same one that he personally killed himself. she stood before us but not like she used to be. something was almost. her mental state was shattered and unstable. and after a rather tough fight we pulled through finding out that lights were her weakness. at that same time a ritual tower had fallen thx to reina and draigos efforts. above ground the fog around the city the alliance had surrounded had finally began to clear. the first obstical has been jumped. now that just leaves 4 more targets. 24 cities left to clear and still about 7billion minions to cleave through. we have gotten the momentum going. now lets keep up the pace! but even though we make progress towards our target i feel a sense of uneasyness. are we being played or is it the new location working at my paranoid nerves? i just hope for our sakes its the latter. see you on the field everyone!! be careful and dont drop your gaurd! press forward and together we will take oda down. for the last time.
- koba (btw i changed my pic cuz i no longer have my previous one and didnt feel like looking for it cuz im lazy as hell. lol)
Hello, I am kaaera, but I prefer to be called "Naru" or "Ruka". im glad to be able to join your guy's team and looking forward to be working. I am 22 years old (not really) and I will be working as an operative. I specialize in swords and guns, as well as some healing magic and martial arts.
after sucessfully managing to defeat a goliath that stormed through the village everyone returned back to the base near the border of the region. there i called a meeting into order to decide our plan of action. defensive maneuvers were suggested but waiting for oda to make the first move with millions of troops at his disposal would prove to be costly.so aftert alking the generals of the land came into agreement that an offensive tact should be put into motion. so after looking at the map of the circular region we took what generals we had at our disposal and devided this like this...
strategy sheet layout:
region sections: 5
southwest - beachfront
north - forest
west - open lands
east - mountain region
south - more forest
forces availabe: 14
motochika - southwest
magoichi - north
yukimura - west
masamune - west
ieyasu - southwest
fenrir - south
kazou - east
jericho - south
reina - infiltration unit
draigo - infiltration unit
nin - infiltration unit
koba - infiltration unit
will - east
cudas group - southwest
stings group - east
machs group - airsupport dispatch
strykers group - airsupport dispatch
tadakatsu - airsupport dispatch
once the aother generals are in positiona nd the launch bay has been setup back at base and the thruster fuel deposits safely gaurded by the mountain region crew, we shall launch our assualt on nobunagas fortress. the infiltration members will have to remain off the radar and use every bit of stealth to slip pass the monsters and through the battlefeild un noticed. the job of airsupport is self explanitory. the mechs shall be launched from the base and fly in to give covering airstrikes wherever they are needed, and then re-fuel and return back to base awaiting for the next launch. it is better to have a airstrike primed and ready vs having them fly randomly over the area. currently all generals are getting ready for war. hopefully this first strike will be the final blow and stop nobunaga before things get out of hand. also i must find out the status of that last city. for once that city is captured then the entire region will become an extremely dangerous area. so its up to the stealth team to take down those ritual towers. primary objective: sabatoge, secondary objective: storm the castle and kill oda. but that last part ma have to wait as we are going in with only four people.... all the same may fate be on our side. LETS GET THIS SHOW STARTED!!!
alright. heres the lowdown. we are still in the process of a full region wide evacuation. but after close examination of our enemies whereabouts some things have came to be clear.
one: nobunagas citadel is located at the center of the region, the very area in which he was sealed away is now his own sick twisted fortress. and upon examination we have determined that the ritual towers on each of his 25 castles each represent a city in our region. and with one tower still inactive for the moment it means that he is very close to taking the last city. but seeing as we cannot seem to stop the process we have to stop it at the source. so we deducted that the fog that surrounds the cities arent the enfective agent but merely a smokescreen, a decoy to divert our attention and mask the true source of this power that changes people into monsters. it is safe to assume that the ritual towers themselves ontop each of the castles are the source of it. or at least may have a great deal to do with it. motoko mentioned that these towers may also be sacrificial in nature. meaning all those lives are being sacrificed for something, or someone. a summoning was suggested and is not ruled out as a possability. but the enrve wrecking question is what could oda have to possably summon that would play as his trump card AND require billions of lives?
two: something else discovered is that the window that my scout team traveled through is NOT a stationary portal. im not sure what plane of existance it warps us to but it can be earth. at least not the earth we know. the skies are dark purple and the ground black as if flames have had at it for centuries. but upon exiting this area we found that not only our exit poit was in a different location but as was we when we returned. meaning that the gateway changes positions every minute. to where we dotn know. and unfortunatly it seems only people with psychic ability can even find the gate to start with. so we think that there may be some connection between the two. but what is known so far is if we do manage to enter the portal lets say on the north side of the now wasteland area, we could come out ANYWHERE in odas terrian. which can be from the hidden spots outside his veiw to right at his front door putting us right in the middle of his armies. so positioning and timing are very difficult to account for. also satelite images show that the day after my team visited him he must have caught wind of us while we were there. cuz now thousands of monsters inhabit the badlands keeping gaurd. amoung them are a noted 4 beasts marked at about 2 stories in hieght. so ontop of pretty much guessing where the gate is we must also fight through this horde which will undoubtedly result int he gate jumping around and us losing track of it.
lastly everyone should know that in light of the circumstances thats going on we are moving the flashpoint base. however the garage, launch bay, and some of our defense systems will not be able to make the trip. only the main building itself is mobilized. we have relocated the base outside the region to avoid the infections spreading to us as well.
task wise reaper, motoko, stryker, usagi, and i had joined up with tadakatsu, masamune, eiyasu, yukimura, and kojuro in an attempt to save reapers home village from a raid byt he monster hordes. not sure how but i guess the scouts must have found the whereabouts. and together we managed to stall them off long enough to get the villagers to safety outside the border. however the earth shook and a below of a beast sent the rest of the monsters running. which bares no good news for us....
theres been small amounts of activity.partly becuase of most everyone just not being able to get into thigns. which is understandable as ive been in the same way. but to avoid being completly bored perhaps we can try and take some baby steps in moving this little process along? now back to the task at hand; updates.
the sum of the past few days is as follows; the research and medical development team has perfected the cure for the monsterous transformations that have plagued the cities. it was tested on me and has so far been proven a success. granted it was a rather high dose of it. but to be on the same side we will have to replicate that and find a way to administer the vaccine to almost 8,000,000 people and then some. wont be an easy task but itll cut our work down dramatically if we can pull this off. in the meantime a region wide evacuation has been initiated for all active members. secure as many civilians as possable and clear out the area as swiftly as possable. ive recieved news from stryker that one of the evacuated cities has already fallen. and its only a matter of time before the last one falls. after which the whole region encircled by those 25 cities will become an infected danger zone. also while leading a search party for the odas whereabouts we found his residence in what seems to be another world entirely. or rather it just feels that way. let it be noted that extremely strong magicical forces are at play here. it gives a ever shifting barrier surrounding odas citadel that can only be detected on foot and by those with a strong psychic ability. however those with said abilities stand risk of being tainted by the concentrated evil emminating from the towers within. i wasnt able to completly map out the area but from a quick glance i managed to get this much.
in the center is an extremly large tower about 25 stories high, it is surrounded on all sides by 4 story walls and 7 story smaller castles. the wall surrounds the main building and just outside that wall are about 25 of those smaller castles. ontop of each castle there is what i beleived to be ritual shrines. 24 of which were glowing and radiating a dark purplish color. the sounds of thousands of people screams coming from each one. just beyond each castle as 3 small watch towers for a total of 75. unsure how many scouts are in each one. the terrain is black as night and the sky was crimson red. no trees or any signs of nature as far as the eye can see. but after turning around and leaving the area we found ourselves in a different part of the desert. as if this area we entered was actually moving about. needless to say it may not be in the same spot again when we next see it. im not sure how we should approach this just yet but odds are we are going to have to strike there before things really get out of hand.
i just have a really bad feeling about those ritual towers..
