Try to get corporate sponsorship.

I bet we can get money if we plaster the side of our helicopter with Coca-Cola logos :v

I already have a corporate sponsorship.
Hmm, so you do.

Sorry, I'll change that to Pepsi.

But getting more doesn't hurt. It just means more money.

Glass is, as usual, correct.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.

No, I'm sponsored by Nintendo and Blizzard, (they don't make the same kind of games so its OK) as well as Loot Crate and Catalyst Gaming Mints. You should keep the sponsorship to Coca Cola.

Don't worry too much about the one mistake, Smoke Mirrors. Your character was memorable for all the demonology and story writing.

Iím running a game/mechanics test called Fate/Mechanics Test. Feel free to check it out.

Intro Turn 1:

We started with 10,000,000, donated generously by the ruling corporations through anonymous channels - trust funds, "structured investments" and the like.

Total purchases come up to $60,775

We have $9,939,225 remaining. Before buying heavy hardware.

Helicopter loadout:
2x heavy autocannons, 620 2000 bullets
30x first and kits, 30x medic bags.
130x rations.
10x smoke grenades.

1.3 Million for the guns
10,500 for medical kits
3250 for rations
500 for 10 smoke grenades

for another $1,311,325

We have $8,627,900 remaining

Emma makes a phone call to Pepsi marketing...

"We're saving the world from aliens, and YOU can have your brand at the forefront of humanities efforts!" We roll on her charisma with a bonus of 0. (20)

The team gets an overwhelming response from the eager soda company that wants to be seen to be saving the world. Our HALO heavy helicopter now mounts a neon billboard with pepsi on it. We have lights flashing their red and blue logo for all to see. Now the whole world will know that Pepsi has come to their rescue in their darkest hour... We are also informed that we will be rewarded if we can find materials that might be beneficial to the soda industry.

Emma then has to negotiate the terms of the payment She adds her intelligence and willpower bonuses and talks tough. (18+2).

We'll be given 2 million dollars per mission day per vehicle that mounts neon billboards with pepsi logos. We're being paid like football stars! Of course the neon billboards will completely nullify any attempts at stealth.

With a normal sniper rifle (i.e. with normal bullets, not lasers), do some target practice at 700 meters, with moving targets, and a fog machine on. Because firing practice.

BTW, I failed to mention this, but Nox is from Ukraine.

Your ballistic skill of 6 gives a bonus of +2

You sight a target at extreme range, 700 meters. Which adds 6 to the difficulty. The target moves about, simulating a target sprinting from cover to cover, adding another 2 to the difficulty. Furthermore you decide to simulate low visibility, adding another 2 to the difficulty.

You roll d20+2 against DC 20.

(12+2) You miss. You have to roll 21 or 22 to hit. No real ammo was used in the simulation.

Never ever cease communication with your enemies, never ever cease interaction with them, never isolate yourself from them. Never ignore them, relish the time to deal with them, to exercise banter. The biggest mistake one can make is ignoring one's enemies. Go out of your way to pick a fight today.

...I hadn't quite realized how much money we get.  Huh.  Well, I talked to Aigre in IRC, and got us an extension to the armory.

Spoiler: New items: (click to show/hide)


And I'm redoing my inventories:

Money left over, subtracting cost of Trump's original loadout:
$4,404,200

Per player:
$1,101,050


I take no responsibilty for any mathematical errors within this post.  I've already spent enough time bean counting, not gonna go over it all again just to make sure.

I did not realize we still had that much money...
Night vision goggles and thermal imaging cameras for everyone!

Let's also get some jeeps, maybe 3 of them, with at least 1 of them (preferably 2) not having the Pepsi billboards, and in fact having camo on it/them (the third can be a distraction). Each will have a light autocannon.

Also, did my armor get camo mods?
Also also, what bonuses might I have gotten if I succeeded in the training sim?
Also also also, try the sim again. Same conditions. But only if this might be giving me tangible benefits. Otherwise, try to get any and all information I can on where the aliens' vital organs are.

EDIT: And another also: Mr. Donald J. Trump, let's remove the sign from at least one of those helicopters. The ones with signs will find their best use as being decoys.

Buy a pair of combat hardsuits, one for myself and one for my minion.
Search Google for an aircraft mechanic, so we can fly any damaged craft there after the mission.

I disagree. Let's get money.

Please save some money for science purposes. Tearing apart the corpses to get at the secrets inside ain't cheap, you know.

I don't necessarily agree.

I see no science expenditure there, only mediocre science skill.
