[Dominator] What's the mission?
[Dominator] Twenty minutes ago, the national embassy was stormed by rogue mavericks and Mavericks. They have taking all the officials there hostage... includiong... the vice-president...
[Blackjack] I know, that's a first.
[Slash] Is there ever a month that we are not needed?
[Dominator] (offical said  that)
[Blackjack] Hmm... hostage situation, eh?
* Garland stands up, and walks next to Dom
[Ariel] Hey, would they keep us around if they didn't need us guys?
[Wiendigo] Just let 'em fry...
[Cold-Snap] Security is so worthless
[Cold-Snap] Why don't they just put us on guard duty?
[Slash] No SWAT teams?
[Dominator] Officer: Yes... The mavericks, lead by somone called "Liberator" have said they will execute all the hostages slowly in retribuation...
* Slash recalls his old days with Force Works
* Ariel hops down, and walks over to everyone else, limping alittle.
[Slash] .....
[Dominator] Liberator... Him again...
[Slash] Methinks its time for a little Lock n Load...
[Blackjack] I knew that name sounded familiar...
[Ariel] ?
[Dominator] Officer: You're ordered to meet up with the EarthGov officers outside at these co-ordinances... *gives them the co-ordinences*.
[Cold-Snap] Another "or" or "er" person.  He's gonna try to kill us, isn't he?
[Dominator] Officer: *image flickers off*
[Blackjack] You should have expected that when you joined up, Cold Snap.
[Blackjack] Your life is on the line every day here.
[Dominator] Yes... Liberator is a crafty maverick... and an old enemy of mine... He hasn't showed up for awhile though... (last Misison 19, I think)

[Cold-Snap] Some sort of garden utensil???

[Blackjack] You again. Go freakin' figure.
[Spade] Greetings Dominator... Hunters... What's the surprise? I do work for EarthGov you know.,
[Garland] NRP: back
* Blackjack sighs
[Dominator] Wiendigo don't attack... Its... true that he does...
[Ariel] Nice to see you too...
[Dominator] WHat do you want with us?
[Blackjack] Oh well... maybe YOU can explain our purpose in all this.
[Wiendigo] NRP: Shit, BRB guys
* Garland looks through Spade
[Cold-Snap] Hi, do they hate you?
[Spade] I'm in charge of this operation, Hunters.
[Slash] .....
[Blackjack] Hm. Mind telling us ABOUT the operation?
* Ariel leaps up, and batts the back of CS's head.
[Garland] NRP: lookign through as in, looking at the area behind them, but in their direction
* Spade blows out smoke, 1"Seems your reploid buddies have decided to kill some of our officials."
[Cold-Snap] oof
[Slash] If you get in the way... I cant be held responsible for my actions...
* Cold-Snap glares at Ariel
[Spade] No demands even... Really, terrorists aren't what they used to be these days.
* Ariel sits down, and looks innocent
[Slash] ....
[Slash] No demands...
[Dominator] ... Get to the point, Spade.
* Garland remains silent
[Blackjack] Once again, the heartless Mavericks screw up life for all Reploids.
[Spade] That's right. They're just going to kill the officials, including the vice-president. I'm here so that doesn't happen.
[Cold-Snap] No reason?
[Cold-Snap] Why bother with the capture?  Why not bomb the place?
[Dominator] They are angry about the recent killings I suppose... *sighs*..
[Blackjack] Because our purpose is to save the hostages, CS.
[Slash] Then lets go in with small Sting teams...
[Cold-Snap] I mean why did THEY bother capturing
[Garland] Spade, why keep them hostage, if they have no intention of lettign them go?
[Ariel] Small?  I'm small!
[Spade] To slowly and painfully execute each hostage, Cold-Snap.
* Ariel shudders.
[Slash] ...
[Cold-Snap] Oh, how'd you know my name???
* Slash raises an eyebrow
* Spade grins, 1"I have ways."
*** Wiendigo has quit IRC (Ping timeout)
* Cold-Snap shudders
[Blackjack] Hmm... maybe I could go in and sneak up on them or something... I didn't train in spying all those years for nothing...
[Dominator] ... So, we can go in to save them?"
* Ariel batts CS again, and then hides behind Garland.
* Garland half grins
[AceHunter] You're probably in the files they have on each hunter, Cold-Snap
[Cold-Snap] ARIEL!  Where'd you go?
* Garland lets out a light laugh
[Spade] You need to go in and save the vice-president. The other officials if possible, but he's priority. You have 1 hour, and then we destroy the building.
[Slash] Dom, we should get a few experts at Stealth and send em in..
* Blackjack notes that everyone ignored his idea
[Slash] BJ and I are good..
[Ariel] [Whispers to Garland] Being small does have it's advantagues...
[Dominator] We could, but.,..
* Slash pulls his cape out
[Slash] I got a way in...
[Ariel] I'm good!
* Blackjack nods
* Garland looks at ariel
[Spade] There's no time for anything fancy, Hunters. They've already started killing officials.
[Slash] ...
[Blackjack] Which is why we need to get in, now. Stealth is important...
* Spade voice shows no apparent concern for the officials
[Slash] Then what are we waiting for...
[Slash] either move in NOW, or sit back and watch them die..
[Garland] .....I say we bust in, and shoot anything that moves....with the exception of the officials.
[Dominator] Right.... I say we all head in and try and free them. And stop the mavericks.
[Ariel] I think I could trick them... Ahem.  Meo... meow?  Meow.
* Cold-Snap begins to sing 1Oh gloom, oh death and destruction!
[Blackjack] Oh, GOOD idea, Ariel.
[Cold-Snap] What about the wings?
[Spade] Remember, Hunters, get the vice-president out. You've only got 1 hour... Go now...
* Slash 's warp blades suddenly appear in his hand ready for action
[Cold-Snap] Normal cats have wings?
* Spade walks off and says something to an officer, who goes off
*** Spade is now known as GM
[Blackjack] Right... let's move it, Hunters.
[Slash] Im going in blasting..
[Blackjack] I'll take the stealth way in...
[Dominator] Right... I say we go in stealthly though.
* Slash pulls his cape over him, concentrating
* Slash fades from view
* Dominator calls out to an officer who's working at a computer station
[Slash] Got that covered..
* Garland grips sword, which now has grip marks from where Garland had held it so tightly
[Dominator] Officer: What?
[Ariel] They won't hear me coming
* Slash laughs
[AceHunter] How about this?
[Cold-Snap] So we're going in then?
[Slash] If they hear me coming, that wont matter..
[Dominator] Locate a possible entrance for us to enter...
[Blackjack] I've had my training... I'm not worried.
[Blackjack] Slash, you go that way. *points* I'll go this way.
*** Wiendigo (wiendigo@rc-71.netonecom.net) has joined #taw
* AceHunter suddenly looks like a normal human without his armor
[Slash] Right
[Cold-Snap] NRP: naked?
[Dominator] Officer: ... All right... *types on his panel* There's one over there. *points and goes back to work*
* Slash a small distortion walks off heading the way BJ pointed
* Dominator mutters, "Friendly, aren't they?"
[Wiendigo] NRP: Naked?
[AceHunter] NRP: Not

* Dominator follows Blackjack
[Dominator] We should stay together...
[AceHunter] NRP: Normal clothes instead of armor
* Ariel runs after BJ...
* Ariel trips...
[Blackjack] Yeah, we should... even if it does increase our chances of being seen...
* Cold-Snap picks up Ariel and runs after BJ
* Ariel rolls into a wall...
* Cold-Snap stops
* Ariel rubs her head
[Slash] Comm] Dominator, there is a better chance of finding them if we split up..
[Dominator] Yes, but we can deal with the maverick better inside...
* Wiendigo slips out of the shadows
[Ariel] Owwie...
[Blackjack] *hissing* Somebody go after Slash! If we go in too large a group, then they'll find us more easily!
[Dominator] All right, Slash... But, stay in contact.
[Ariel] [Comm] Divide and conquer?
[Garland] ....
[Cold-Snap] Can someone give me orders?
* Slash laughs softly
[Wiendigo] How about, "Shut the hell up!"?
[Slash] Comm] Pick 2 people
[Blackjack] Garland, Ariel, come with me.
* Dominator they've been going downhill and he finds a wall at the sub-basement of the area, that's been opened by the EG forces
[Cold-Snap] Wien, I would never take orders from a freak like you
* Garland teleports beside BJ
[AceHunter] Who do I go with?
[Slash] Comm] Dom, Ace with me
* Ariel hops down and follows BJ
[Blackjack] Comm] Shouldn't Dom lead a group, Slash?

[Wiendigo] *quietly* Screw you...
[Cold-Snap] [whisper] so, would it be ok to fire on any mavs we see?
[Garland] I still think we should go in, and just get it over with...
[Blackjack] We need to find them first, Garland...
* Wiendigo takes out his Energon Katana.
* Dominator starts with Slash's group, down a long and small tunell, which they must crawl through
* Slash crawls through after Ace, eventually hitting another grate, leading to a storage room
[Garland] We would, if we didn't snoop around like this.
[Blackjack] Hey, I'm just trying to keep us from being found.

[Blackjack] NRP: ACK! Ignore that I picked it up!
[Slash] NRP: *LOL*
* Blackjack recoils
* Ariel sudders slightly.
[Cold-Snap] NRP:  HA!
* Garland looks at the woman.
[Dominator] Nothing much of use in here... There's a door. *opens it and sees a staircase*
[Blackjack] One of the personnel...
[Slash] Go ahead Dom... you the leader..
[Blackjack] We're on the right track...
[Cold-Snap] oo, stairs.  Love to climb
[Dominator] GM: Its eerily quiet for both teams.

[Blackjack] Ok. Let's go... and remember, stay quiet...

* Dominator lets loose a powerful blast from Thunder Bolt; its green circular energy blast slams into all enemies in the area (580AP)

* Maverick dies and falls odwnthe stairs
[Slash] FRICK
[Cold-Snap] Um, guess not
[Slash] Comm] you guys ok?

[Wiendigo] Nothing...
[Slash] NRP: Quiet..
[Dominator] Right...
[Blackjack] Let's go then. Top floor would probably be the best bet...
[Wiendigo] But I saw we make some noise!
[Ariel] !
[Cold-Snap] [whisper] be vewy vewy quiet, I'm hunting wabbits . . .
[Blackjack] I was afraid of that...
* Dominator carefully opens the door and sees three mavericks in the room
