"Steve, you've got eyes on the events, is there any way to patch me in or something? All I need is line of sight and I can assist. Well, line of sight and a whole lot of luck...."

Ask if Steve can send live video of the current events to me. Helmet cams, or cameras on the Sword, anything currently pointed at the teams.

Ask Steve to momentarily shut down power in Gilgamesh (hopefully also shutting down the weapon), then restart the suit if possible (do not shut down if remote powering-up is impossible).

So it was like a binary search, except the question is "Has the input been brutally murdered?", and it only ever returns True.

Yttra goes over the mission in her head. A few things keep coming back to her the letters A.R.M. someone screaming "Shock Faith!" Morul standing in the road after ripping half his body off she doesn't know what any of it means.

She sits quietly, ignoring everything around her, just waiting for the driver to get them to wherever it is they're supposed to be going.

Unplug everyone then destroy the eggs and await pickup.

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.

Keep on the lookout and ponder as to what exactly Faith referenced by that Upload back there--wonder if I've enough fuel to carry quite well everyone left behind back to the general area of the APC.

Subtly apologize to piecewise on being foncused .-.


What did Faith mean by the Upload?

Keep an eye on the Murderstorm. Close hatch if it gets close enough to zap us.

Because trying to stuff Fate/Whatever's engrish and the title of a 17th century book on statecraft into Pokemon syntax tends to make the content incomprehensible.

If the data has already been sent. Help unplug everyone and destroy the "eggs" before heading for our pickup place with the team.

Hang onto Renen to get to the pickup with the team. Praise the pantheon my synthflesh body held up well enough to keep me alive and kicking, figuratively speaking.

EDIT: Before doing the below, see if I could get out and switch the gun to another mode (preferably No Colour Mode). Tie a sample container (or better yet several of them) at the end of one of those metal poles I have in Gilgamesh's backpack and use that to touch the Colour Selector Dial if it looks like the gun is dangerous to touch.

Else, pop that maintenance hatch open (by using the physical internal switch I found in tinker), get out and do whatever I have to do to shut this thing down.
If I can't get out, use that emergency release (NOT the escape pod function).
If I can't open the hatch, see if I could slice the cover or the 4 locking pins holding it with the monorazor.


((Note to self: get an on/off switch installed for that gun.))
You open the hatch just a bit and stick a pole out. You use it to flip the selector switch to one of the lines between the colors and the gun immediately powers down and contracts back into its normal shape. Whew. You quickly pull the pole back in and shut the hatch.

The storm is still boiling overhead but it doesn't seem to be spreading anymore. And, though it is still raining lightning down at a frightening pace and has essentially set several blocks of lower income housing and businesses on fire, at least it seems to be slowly clearing.

"Steve, you've got eyes on the events, is there any way to patch me in or something? All I need is line of sight and I can assist. Well, line of sight and a whole lot of luck...."

Steve sends you feeds of the current events.

You kinda wish he hadn't.
Ask Steve to momentarily shut down power in Gilgamesh (hopefully also shutting down the weapon), then restart the suit if possible (do not shut down if remote powering-up is impossible).
We'll belay that order since it wouldn't help now.

Stay frosty, get stabby.

Charge a bonus to jump out of the back door of a moving car? That should be funny.

Unplug everyone then destroy the eggs and await pickup.
You kick everyone back, unplugging them via force, and then proceed to smash up all the eggs with a chunk of debris. Once you're satisfied that they're broken beyond repair, you head back out and sit down on the road near the manhole, right in the middle of the cul-de-sac.  You notice that someone is looking out of a window of a nearby house at you. When you look back they draw their curtains and hide. Hmph.

Keep on the lookout and ponder as to what exactly Faith referenced by that Upload back there--wonder if I've enough fuel to carry quite well everyone left behind back to the general area of the APC.

You don't have enough fuel to carry everyone to the APC; and the rather scary looking storm hovering near the area they should be is making you think they're probably safer here anyways.

Keep an eye on the Murderstorm. Close hatch if it gets close enough to zap us.
The murderstorm seems to be falling back, or at least it's stopped advancing. Whew.

"...I"m a cat."

If the data has already been sent. Help unplug everyone and destroy the "eggs" before heading for our pickup place with the team.
You join the rest of the highly trained and capable murders who are currently camped out in this little cul-de-sac like kids waiting for an icecream truck.

Hang onto Renen to get to the pickup with the team. Praise the pantheon my synthflesh body held up well enough to keep me alive and kicking, figuratively speaking.
Heh. Kicking.

I follow.




As the murderstorm falls back it is replaced by something else. The sound of sirens comes first, and then about 30 seconds later a half dozen police cars merge onto the road, giving chase and rapidly catching up with the APC. They're sleek, black metal things with flashing red lights and the passenger section of each of them has the windshield replaced by a metal panel with a slit in it. Rifles and handguns poke their barrels out of the slits and take aim.

Meanwhile, the helicopters have made it to the edge of the murder storm and are slowly moving in toward Flint as the storm subsides.

"Suddenly, being stranded in low Kano orbit doesn't seem all that bad. Gonna try something guys. Hold on."

If I can see the armored police vehicles, attempt to rip one of the tires off the lead vehicle, and steer it into a collision with the other cars.

Continue awaiting pickup. Lead basement team even further from the city if necessary.

If no pickup arrives, go watch the news in curtains house.
