Preparing for the Coming Storm, Team Two
« on: April 19, 2018, 09:41:50 AM »
The collected hunters and hunters in training are all sitting together in a massive hall, itís comfortable enough despite how frigid it is outside and with several Atlas students not participating, or at least not participating now, walking around providing refreshments the place gave off a welcoming vibe despite its utilitarian design. As well as the hunters several scientists and teacher staff also walked between groups asking questions about their training exercises and how they overcame, or tried to overcome, these challenges. The walls were covered with screens showing some of the training sessions going on, battles with giant robots, grimm or other hunters each with their own rules on how to win. Paying close attention however it was clear, given by how many people were being taken out, that not every session was being played but most were none the wiser and cheered on these fights through the screens, talked to each other or prepared for their own encounter.



It took a few hours for Ravya and Co to get called out. During this lull a few of the screens occasionally flicked back to a forested area, strangely serene compared to the other intense rushes of combat. As time went on however people began to point out strange movement among the trees, impossible glints and strange blurs got everyone talking. The Atlas teachers had been preparing for this for weeks, spending almost any waking moment hunting for new obstacles when not putting others in front of their students. But there was also all the scientists and engineers which were walking around, some who grinned slightly whenever the strange forest was shown.

Lead through the corridors the selected students quickly found themselves at the start of the strange forest. There wasn't any of the ordinary helpers around this test site instead there was a particularly well dressed woman with blond hair and piecing blue eyes. Beckoning the group forward she began to explain the constraint of the test. 'An unknown terrorist organisation has reprogrammed and stolen several robot prototypes and used them to prepare an ambush for an unsuspecting transport. It's cargo is incredibly valuable and must be delivered on time, there can be no delays. As such you all have been tasked to rid the forest of any threat. Any questions?' The Woman announced dramatically, she was clearly enjoying the bit of theater.

Behind her it was far easier to see the now clearly metalic glints between the trees. Whatever they were being tasked to deal with was already watching.

Sounds like a simple "search and destroy" mission, Smokey thought to himself as he finished loading Matchstick and rested the gun on his shoulder.  Given the wide variety of missions being doled out here, he should consider himself lucky that there weren't more complicated instructions.  That being said, this wouldn't be easy.  The "terrorists" have already embedded themselves in preparation for ambush, and it'd be very easy for the group to fall into a trap.  Given that Smokey doesn't exactly have a "quiet mode," that goes doubly so for him.

He let out a sigh.  "Nothin' to do except deal with it, I guess," he muttered before turning to the woman before him.  "Yeah, I have two questions, although I'm pretty sure I know the answer to at least one of 'em.  Number one, is there anything else you can tell us about the prototypes' capabilities or weapons?  And number two, the way you're talking about 'no delays' makes it seem like there's a time limit.  Any chance we can get an ETA?" 

Considering how these training missions normally work, he doubted he'd get an answer to either of his questions, but he loses nothing by asking.

'You've got half an hour before the first transport will be in the area, although obviously delaying would be preferable to risking them you should have the robot defeated well before the thirty minute timer is up. As more their capabilities, specifics are classified but they all fall under the general group of anti-grimm defenses. So they aren't designed to deal with aura or some of the more abstract semblances but still will put up a serious threat.' The woman responded.

It was nice to be back at home for Justice. There was the feeling of efficiency that got him in the mindset to get great things done. That kind of inspiration is hard to come by. He sipped his thermos of tea as he got up from his seat and joined this team of misfits. He was already regretting the decision to leave everything to chance. These delinquents would surely make him look bad.

Looking out into the trees, Justice's face took a stoic tone as he attempted to figure out some sort of strategy or motivation behind the placement of the machines. "A brief question. Are we to assume that we can guard the transport as it arrives in case of any missed devices?" he asked, turning a brief glance to the woman.

Nathan had been standing a bit behind the rest of his teammates, arms crossed and listening intently to the representative - as well as his colleagues when they asked questions.

From what he'd heard so far, what he'd - they'd - have to face off against was a group of robots, numbers unknown, fairly mobile by the looks of the glints coming from the forest as well as tailored to anti-Grimm operations. That probably involved some sort of coordination. Maybe lots of it, too, seeing as they were prototypes. Seeing as they were in the forest, they might be more belle than the usual Knights he'd seen here and there? Not that it precluded ranged units, but still, you're better off with CQC in mildly dense woods.

'You will be given the opportunity to attempt to defend the train although it shouldn't be part of your plan. The robot's effectiveness against Grimm is mostly from their sensory technology meaning they will likely detect the transport before you will.' The woman responded as she started walking away. 'The test will begin once you enter the forest so feel free to take your time and plan out your approach.' Waving goodbye the woman walked back inside the complex assumably to watch.

The forest had been still for as long as the group of hunters in training have been out in the field. Glints of metal can still be seen as the sun strikes and certain angles but even with the substantial wind outside the trees are barely moving.

Yup, that was about the answer Smokey expected.  Specifics are classified, even though the group will inevitably find out exactly what the prototypes can do very shortly.  Gotta love training mission logic.  And now the woman specifies the transport is a train.  That explains a lot, like why the transport isn't just rerouting.  It also tosses out Smokey's original plan of setting the forest on fire, as that would have invariably damaged the train tracks, and thus delayed the train.  So much for the easy way out...

As the woman walked away, Smokey turned to his teammates for this exercise.  "So, uh, as much as I'd love to charge in recklessly into unfamiliar territory against a fortified opponent ready to ambush us as soon as we make a wrong move," he takes a deep breath, "it'd probably be a good idea to come up with some sort of plan.  The lady said something about 'sensory' technology and that these things are built for Grimm combat.  I don't know if you guys got anything from that, but that basically told me nothing useful other than that they are robots with weapons.  As such, I vote for the 'charge in recklessly and see what happens' plan."  Clearly, Smokey is the epitome of tactical prowess.
