    [O - F03] Z on Forring

    Location: Forring - F03 Tags: Vehicle, Land Vehicle Famed Octan inventor, Zaael, graciously accepted Executive John Hannibal's request for a new pair of legs and waited to meet Hannibal between jobs on Forring. Install would be easy based on the specs CLAPPIE sent over, but their rendezvous required some secrecy on the technically MANTIS planet. AD 3816 Brough Superior SS800 on Forring in the Andromeda Galaxy by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr [Hannibal] - I can't thank you enough for the legs, Big Z. [Zaael] - You know I'm here for you anytime, John. I'm sorry your stuck in such a sad state of affairs, but I hope you know that I'll do anything I can to help you out. [H] - Yeah, I do know that. Just let me know how I can return the favor. [Z] - Meh. So, where to now? [H] - I still have to link up with my flight programing patrolling over Ertauq, but that'll be easy in this new interface CLAPPIE designed. Then Hombre and I have some wetwork planned on Donwarr. [Z] - Damn John, you know you died on Donwarr? [H] - Yeah... It's something we've got to do. Hombre is a consummate professional, he'll see us through. [Z] - Well after looking you over, I've got some ideas for your torso. Those arms can't be comfortable in a cockpit. Let's plan to meet over Donwarr to fix you up.
  2. Location: Forring - F03 Tags: Spaceship The return Bigger things are happening Interlude New units So it is true. John is not dead. Well he is in body, but not in mind. This morning he contacted Zaael, he needs legs. If it was anyone else contacting him, he would have laughed at this request. It was not anyone else however, so Zaael started designing. Now the design was done and he had to pick up the needed parts, before setting course to Forring. Picking up parts was also the perfect cover. As per John's request this mission and meeting was to be covert and kept a secret at all costs. For this occasion Zaael was going to fly the new Gemini class. A highly maneuverable spaceship. The adjustable wings allow for a vertical liftoff, swift atmospheric flight and interstellar travel. Asteroid fields are an easy obstacle when flying in this Gemini class ship.

    [O - F03] AG Radio News

    Location: Forring - F03 Tags: Land Vehicle The return Bigger things are happening Interlude - Kathleen Kelly is in Love New units My name is Gerard Connor and this is the AG Radio news. The recent disappearance of an Octan Corp operative by the name of Kathleen Kelly, who was stationed on Forring, was investigated by the Octan Criminial Investigation Department. During the investigation an e-mail came to light. This e-mail together with the rest of the case ended up at senior management. The decision was made to send out 100 Recon Units to all parts of the planet. Their official mission is to find Kathy, but our source tells us their off-the-records-mission is to find and eliminate any alien lifeforms they encounter, because aliens are bad for business. This is yet another report of alien activity on a planet where Octan Corp has settled and of which Octan Corp has always denied the existence of any intelligent alien lifeforms. Beware if you're on Forring and strolling around in the forest. You can encounter one of the many Recon Units. You can recognize such a unit by the recon droid accompanied by a heavily armed Octan soldier on a speeder. On to MANTIS news... there is no news, which in itself is news. MANTIS' recent activities are scarce. One can only imagine they found a new galaxy. I am sure Kawashita and Octan spies are on the case. Greater Drigo was finally taken by Kawashita. After a long fight....

My new job is awesome, Octan is the best! This job is the best in the galaxy, I am really cut out for this. I like the solitary feel this gives. On your own on a strange planet, you know I like being alone. This is me on my Octan Corp Light Transport Speeder! The selfie drone you and dad gave me comes in really handy! xD Don't get me wrong, I like my colleagues, but truth be told, I like being alone better. At least so I thought. Mom... I am in love! <3 Since two weeks I am assigned to Forring. I am responsible for getting light equipment and supplies from the mayor Awesomnium foundry to the mines and vice versa. The route takes me through a dense forest. And this is were I met him, I almost ran him over when he crossed my path. He lives here!! On Forring, can you believe that?!? I thought we were alone here, hee hee. Mom he is beautiful and sweet and strong and awesome. <3<3 I think you will like him. I don't have a picture of him yet. He doesn't like pictures, or anything technological. He is really down to earth... or rather Forring hee hee. xD Gotta go now mom, give dad a kiss. XOXO Here's another selfie! Love you <3 Kathy PS: How are things on Earth? :-)

This unit is a swift walker equipped by a stun ray and an EMP pulser to incapacitate any hostile unit in the blink of an eye.

    [M-F03] Turning the Tables

    Location:F03 Forring Tags: Military building - Welcome to my lab Hawk. At last I have you in my grasp... - Remember Sebastian, If you want to be a part of this organization, you have to be more ominous and use lots of spidery terminology. - Oh right. I meant to say the Hawk is now like a fly caught in my web. How was that? - - Much better. There is something I need to check on. I will leave you to whatever it is you do in here. - Very well. So Hawk, do you have anything to say before we start? - What do you want with me? - Oh thats simple. Revenge. I want to make you suffer like how you made me suffer under the rubble of that base on Jurrin 2. The Zoids had abandoned me and left me for dead. Luckily for me, Spider found me and rehabilitated me into what you see today. They truly appreciate my genius unlike those fools at Octan. - So Spider wanted you to build Hybrid soldiers for them to sell to those dust demons? - Not exactly. My work is a little more subtle this time, but it still has the power to topple an entire corporation if I so desired. - So what was in that cryo-tube - It's a mystery. Well that's enough chit chat. lets get started shall we. How about I perform a laser arm amputation. All the cool executives in Andromeda have been loosing limbs. -Computer: Arming laser. Amputation will begin in 5 minutes. - Excuse me. - - Wait what? You aren't supposed to be here. Explain yourself at once! - We are here to transport the prisoner. - What is this madness! I made no request. - No you didn't doctor. We are here for you. Thrugg, would you mind taking out that laser? - It be Thruggs honor to save birdee man. - - What do you want from me? - Alien has put a rather large bounty on your head for crimes you had committed against the zoids. How are you doing Hawk. - Took you guys long enough to get here. I almost lost an arm. - - We wanted to make you sweat it out a little. Just because you are Dax's friend doesn't mean we can't have a little fun at your expense. - Thanks. Do you still have the cryo tube? Do you know where the Spider agent is? - We lost track of her. We better get to the ship asap before they realize whats going on. Thanks for looking, C&C welcomed.

    [M-F03] In The Spiders Nest

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Military Building - - Sebastian, if what you tell me is true, the corporations will not stand a chance against the Dust Demons. At last we will have our revenge against Kawashita. - Joining Spider was the best thing that has happened to me. I am free of the ethical restraints of Octan and can test the limits of science. But enough chit-chat. Did you bring me the artifact? - We did. I don't know what you want this thing for, but I hope you kept your part of the bargain. - Of coarse. The exchange is complete. With this I will be able to take my research to the next level. - - I have to warn you, the test specimen must not fall into enemy hands. If they discover what we have done, all of my work will be for nothing. - I understand completely. we will guard him with our lives. Soldier, take the cryotube to our shuttle. - Right away. - - Well it looks like I'm blessed with even more good news. I am surprised though. You are later then expected. - You can blame Monsters of Andromeda for that. - Ugh, a vile holo game owned by the evil Kawashita Corporation! They must pay! - Sorry to cut our meeting short but you are in the presence of MANTIS first branch executive Hawk. He is the one who did this to me. - I have heard about you. It's too bad you don't have more loyal friends in Andromeda. - Yeah I'm starting to think the whole galaxy has been plotting against me. - Ha ha, so very true. So where did we leave off from the last time we met? Oh yeah you were about to take part in one of my state of the art experimental procedures. Don't worry I won't turn you into a Zoid this time. Thanks for looking. The story should be up tomorrow. C&C welcomed as always.

It seems like we have waited half of a solar cycle on the landing pad for you. -well I'm looking for a...... - - Why are you pointing that blaster at me? -Stay still if you don't move I might be able to take it out. -Oh. That is a Fiegre. I have been playing Monsters of Andromeda. You use your communications holo tablet and it projects little creatures around you that you have to hunt down. It's pretty fun. you want to try? -No thanks. Anyway the captain wants you at at the landing pad now. -I bet if I found a Froganator you would have had this base in lock down!

    [M-F03] A New Assignment

    Location: F03, Forring Tags: Spaceship, Military Building - -Welcome back to Forring Hawk. -Thanks General. I was just plotting out my next supply run. How can I help you? -Well, we are delaying your supply runs. We have a new assignment for you. Recently some of our armored scouts have gone missing on patrol. A few days ago one for them sent out a distress call with coordinates before loosing contact. We want you to investigate. -Sounds dangerous. Do we have any idea what took these scouts out? What will I be flying. The only ship on this outpost is the Turkey Mk2. -We don't know what took them out. Your shuttle will be enough. We will be assigning a group of special forces to be working with you. I would like to introduce you to Captain Mira. She will brief you on the mission. - -I'm glad I finally get to meet you Hawk. I have heard much about you. We will have 4 spec ops soldiers with us and we will start our search at these coordinates. Are you ready to go? -I just have a few questions. shouldn't we have a more backup then this. Something capable of taking out scout mechs should have no problem with a few spec ops. Couldn't we just send some unmanned drones? Plus an unarmed shuttle isn't the best choice for a situation like this. What if it is some kind of subterranean super predator? -Right now the mission is to observe and report. Our supplies have been cut a little short recently so this is all the soldiers we can spare at the moment. The CEO himself requested for you to go on this mission. We would never had any drones to do our work for us on Ice planet. - -Dont' worry Hawk. One MANTIS spec. ops. soldier is worth 100 of another corporations soldiers! It looks like your ship is unloaded and my soldiers are ready to go. We will meet you out on the landing pad. -Ok. I will be out there shortly. I hope you are right about all this Dax. - Thanks for looking. C&C is welcomed as always.

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Military Building, Spying Alarms sounding - -Sebastion, I seems that MANTIS has finally stumbled on our location. Are the preparations complete? -They are, but what happens if MANTIS get there hands on what I have accomplished here? -Everything that has happened so far has been by my design. It will be a good test for your new subjects. We will lure them right in my t....... -I have seen what MANTIS can do first hand. I will not be one of your pawn to be discarded at you will. Maybe I will take my work and go elsewhere with it. -You need to remember your place Sebastion. I saved your life from that remote Octan base for a reason, and I can just as easily end it. Plus i have a gift for you. I have made arrangements for a reunion with the MANTIS that did this to you. -I'm sorry. How is this possible? - I will all become clear soon. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the show. - -This is Mobil scout 1 to base. I have found something that you need to see. -Base: what is it Scout 1 - It appears to be an abandoned Military bunker. I am reading no movement or energy signature. -Base: Thats bizarre scout 1. None of our satellite images show any structures in the area. Please send us your coordinates and check the perimeter. - Right away. Sending coordinates now. - -Now they know where we are. We should have opened fire on them when we had the chance. Now they will destroy my work for sure. -My contacts in MANTIS have assured me that will not happen. Your work is truly great Sebastion, but if you keep questioning my plans your time in this organization might be cut short. I have to be going now but one of my associates will be staying with you to keep an eye on your work. Agent 3.... -Yes sir. - - The pieces are in place. It is time to set the trap. Like a fly in the spiders web, the Mantis will meet a similar fate. - yes sir.... - Scout 1 to base. Im picking up movement on my scanners. Wait, there is an energy spike to......oh no........its fast......... systems fai........bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzt More pictures under the spoiler tag Thanks for looking, C&C welcomed.

    [O - F03] Space Madness

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // The Aeolus recovered the Octan ship and were able to retrieve the pilot. Sadly the pilot wasn't in great shape. Physically he seemed relatively ok, but mentally he was struggling. As an executive of Octan I was quite concerned with his health and safety, Dr. Allison seemed interested in him as a test case. Based on logs we determined his name was Joel Zimmerman, however, all he would say is "Can you hear the screams?" The Farr-tes said it seemed likely that he had developed a minor case of Spontaneous Space Madness. They said that with some sedation and rest he would most likely be fine. Luckily they had human medical knowledge and a facility on planet that could help him. We have already been fortunate to have an alliance with them! Extra Pics:

    Location: F03, Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Spying If our intelligence is right, the aliens should be arriving to meet the Octan delegation any minute now. Yeah. Y’know, I have this horrible feeling I’ve forgotten something… This is so exciting! A new intelligent alien species! Yeah! Alright nerds, don’t get too excited. You’re here to learn quietly – when the aliens get here, let me do the talking. You scientists aren’t properly trained in PR. But how are we supposed to study the aliens without talking to them? I don’t care. Octan needs new allies – I don’t want you offending them by asking how many kidneys they have, or whatever. AHHHH! What the-? Where did that come from?! <Do not be alarmed, humans.> That voice… it’s in my head! <Yes. We speak directly by thought.> Uh, Sal, do you think it can read our minds? Probably not… still, better keep your mind blank. That should be easy for you. Hey! Heh heh heh. Greetings from Octan Corporation! We hope to begin a profitable relationship with your race. May we ask what you call yourself? <Our name is a concept that your minds cannot understand. From your limited perspective, ‘the Five’ would be an appropriate approximation.> Hahaha, it thinks Octan are too stupid to understand numbers! ‘The Five’. My apologies, but is that the name of your race, or the name of you the individual? <It is… challenging… to explain in a way you can understand. Let us tell you the story of our race.> Ugh, I can tell this is going to take a while. <This planet was not always the toxic wasteland that you see around you.> Wait, what? <In ancient times it was a simpler place. Five species lived here peacefully. Over the millennia we grew advanced. But then a cataclysmic event occurred and the atmosphere changed. Dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of new species arose. The ground itself was colonised by these messy, primitive lifeforms that you see around you.> The… plants? <Despite our advanced minds we were unable to compete with the wildly proliferating life. Everything changed too quickly. We had evolved slowly. We were not able to adapt. As our cities crumbled, the last remnants of our races built this vehicle to house the survivors.> So… you are the survivors of all five species? In this one… machine? <As far as it is possible for you to understand, yes.> Uh… right. So anyway, Octan Corporation would be happy to trade or- <We have no interest in trade. We seek to warn you. There is one among the leaders of your Clan of Eight whose mind is more powerful than any other. More powerful even than ours.> I knew it! What? Don’t you see? They’re talking about me! Uh… but they said the Clan of Eight. Yes, clearly they mean the Council of Five, plus the current and past CEOs of M.A.N.T.I.S. I kinda figured they meant Octan… <Already this mind is starting to warp the very fabric of space and time. It must be stopped before irreparable damage is done.> Yeah, I really don’t think this is about you Sal… Nonsense! I always suspected I was special! <Humans! We told you to send three!> We did! There are three of us here. <No. We sense others. From the Clan of Six.> The Clan of Six? <Yes. The ones who take the image of the six-legged creatures.> Uh oh. MANTIS! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Thanks for reading! Sorry it was a bit text heavy - there were supposed to be a few more photos but they didn't come out right and I didn't have time to retake them. C&C welcome

    [M - F03] Mission P4F03

    Location: F03 Tags: Land Vehicle, Spying Ok, but... just explain it to me one more time... Unbelievable! This plan is like spying 101, I don't understand how you're not getting it. I've hacked Octan's computers to trick them into thinking they’ve detected a prisoner transport. They’re going to come after you thinking they’re rescuing one of their guys. Right… Redsyn here is one of our best drivers – he’ll lead them on a merry chase but will eventually let you be ‘rescued’. By using the tracking device we implanted in you we’ll find out where their base is when they take you back there. Simple! Uh… ok, I think I understand now. But why not use an actual Octan prisoner? I have… other uses… for the real prisoners. Unless you’d like to trade places with them? No sir! I thought not… But won’t they realise I’m not actually from Octan? No, they’ll never suspect it. I thought you said this was obvious, like spying 101… Don’t worry, our forces will show up well before Octan has time to find you out. This plan is foolproof! Wait… To be continued! Didn't have time to do the whole story this week. The vehicles are based on my first castle sets, 6042 Dungeon Hunters and 6018 Battle Dragon. More pics in the spoiler. Thanks for reading, C&C welcome!

    [M-F03] Down the R-ABBIT hole

    Location: Above Forring Bzzt-Start recording: Alright, this is the radio log of Agent G, M.A.N.T.I.S. Explorer. The time is 16:27, and I and a crew of M.A.N.T.I.S. operatives have taken the Octan spaceship R-ABBIT flying over Forring. Currently checking the ship for any more Octan personnel. Almost over, just the cargo storage rooms are left. Wait. Someone's over there, running! Damn, went down one of the side passages... HA! Got you n- A rabbit, a white rabbit wearing a red vest? I must have eaten a bad larvae in the cafeteria! Ah, lost it again, wait no, there it is! That door leads to the storage rooms, and that's the only door, got you now! To be continued... Extra pics: C&C welcome!

    [O - F03] Requested Repairs

    Location: Forrin - F03 Tags: Land Vehicle, Civil, Building Previously: - The Return - The Scavenge Hunt An afternoon on Forring. Z is finishing up a new Mech as a transmission comes in. It's from Wick, WICK! Is he back? Z answers the call and after some welcome backs and some chatting Wick tells him he found a beacon which needs fixing and new programming. Wick thinks it's just the task for Zaael. Having accepted this task Z sets out to the coordinates Wick gave him. Skimming over the beautiful grass lands of Forring on his OC.MQ2 Zaael closes in on his target. Extra pics:

    [O-F03] Within the Rabbit Hole

    Planet: F03, Forring Tags: Science, Civil (the structures are not militant) "Log Date 008. This is Dr. Danielle Long. Log Dates 005, and 006 are missing from my personal Log. I worry that this data corruption may be due to the new chip I have been using since the temporal fluctuation incident. I will be sure to have this fixed upon my return to the Axle, which is scheduled for tomorrow: Desembrinali 23. Furthermore, I suspect there has been some forms of sabotage to my personal Octancorp temporary habitation pod. I noticed this morning that 2 months worth of rations had gone missing, along with several other inexplicable differences to the pod that make me believe someone had been inside it... either that or I've been sleepwalking, a noted side-effect of the BonNuit ™ sleeping pill... but that doesn't explain the missing rations... nor, more importantly, does that explain the lack of communication I have with the Axle. I've never gone even a day without coordinating with the Axle... and now I find that my communications device is unable to reach them. Surely this will be straightened out when I return to the Axle tomorrow. This bizarre morning has only continued to become more and more disconcerting. The Unidentified Artifact I was deployed to investigate deems to have... already been somewhat escavated. There are clear signs of very recent work on the Alien structure. All these signs lead me to believe I am not the only one down here interested in this artifact. Perhaps Mantis?... but they have no presence on this planet. I, a woman of science, must admit, I find these turns of event somewhat... Eerie. But I must not let sentiment get in the way of my work. I will have my drone, who's memory banks seem to have been wiped clean last night, investigate the recent cave in that appears to be blocking further access to the tunnels that comprise this structure. When originally reported, just over a week ago, it was mentioned that these tunnels seemed to lead far far underground. I wonder what could have caused the tunnel's collapse... and what is causing the dull throbbing pain on the back of my head. Dr. Long out." Better pictures are up. I should be getting a better camera soonish. ~Insectoid Aristocrat

    [O - F03] Speedy Speeder

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Science, Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // I found myself utilizing the data we gathered last week to try and put our theories into practice. It seemed a little weird that as the currently highest ranking scientist in Octan that I would have to do so much field work myself, but our CEO pombe said that we all needed to contribute. He was also excited to have me use one of Bruce Vayne's new space ship designs. I said it looked more like an old Earth railway car but he insisted it was a highly sophisticated piece of machinery. Though I wasn't filled with confidence when pombe said: "After about 7 Alien Annihilators Bruce came up with the idea for this thing!" Surprisingly it seemed to work though and I was able to find some concentrated pockets of Awesomnium. ED-208 was sent ahead to secure a Mantis lab we had discovered while Dr. Allison was utilizing a new speeder design. Given the state of war between Octan and Mantis she was using a more subtle design on the speeder than was typical. It was a very fast and nimble layout, so I told her since ED-208 was not with her and the speeder being unarmed that she should keep the throttle open just in case. I guess she likes going fast because she said the vibrations from the speed were exhilirating. The Mantis lab seemed to be an experimental lab designed to enhance plant life with various Awesomnium soil and water. They also appeared to be using various lighting sources to try and maximize growth. CEO pombe instructed me that he had numerous uses for this technology and that he hoped we could acquire any scientific advancements and that any gains that had been discovered should be reported to him personally. Immediately. I'm not sure why, but he said Bruce Vayne would be very interested also and that he and Bruce would need a lot of Oreos and Doritos. I guess they were going to be trying some new recipe because he said there would be a lot of baking happening. Extra Pics:

    [O - F03] Finding on Forring

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Science, Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // After last week's efforts to better refine our abilities to find Awesomnium we received orders to head over to Forring to assist in the search for Awesomnium there. I obtained one of our "area defense" space drones and removed all of the missiles and other weaponry. I swapped in side scan radar, a front mounted ground penetrating radar and other scanning equipment. These drones typically operate just outside the atmosphere in space waiting for targets, so having it operate at that altitude and scanning for signs of Awesomnium wasn't going to be a problem. Dr. Allison and I headed out to a small Octan building on the planet where we could best analyze data and alter the flight path of the drone. She had some new mathematical models she wanted to try out to see if they would be more efficient in finding metals. I was certainly happy to have the assistance as the corporation can use all the help it can get in our current conflict with the warriors of MANTIS. Given our state of affairs with them and that Forring is a MANTIS controlled planet I was happy that ED-208 was available to accompany us to the planet's surface. I guess he had properly helped Sue with some sort of "back door adjustment" and she needed several days of rest. I'm not sure what they were adjusting the back door to, but it must have required a lot of work if Sue needed a few days to recover! ED-208 had found a MANTIS mech on Jurin II last week and we had brought it with us. He was in the process of getting it in proper working order and upgrading it when we had to ship out. It wasn't quite done, but it was fully functional and armed. I didn't expect we would encounter heavy resistance since we were going to a remote Octan base, but having some firepower was a relief. He had managed to remove a lot of the human controls and better integrate it with his own robotic form to make the responsiveness much better. It was a marvel to see it operate as an extension of his own body! Hopefully Dr. Allison's models prove beneficial and we are able to refine our capabilities to find Awesomnium. It was good to be back working with drones again as that is my primary speciality. I think that Dr. Allison is even becoming a bit more comfortable in the field now, though she did seem to want me to go into the Octan building with her while ED-208 maintained watch. She said she had something to show me, but I told her that we would lose the signal to the drone from inside the building and that she should bring it out to me and show me outside. I guess it wasn't anything that important as she said: "Ugh, never mind. I should just show ED-208 like Sue!" Extra Pics: ED-208's mech has legs that swing and the part below the knee can twist 360. My first real attempt at a minifig scale mech. Also the gun traverses and can point up and down. The whole thing managed to be pretty easy to balance despite making it up as I went.

    [O - F03] The Scavenge Hunt

    Location: Forrin - F03 Tags: Land Vehicle, Engineering Previously: - The Return Zaael found John Hannibal at the secret hideout of the Jurinians. The CEO was occupied trying on dresses, so John took the responsibility to welcome Zaael back. John and Z shook hands and John brought Z up to speed about the recent developments, strategic plans and other important, classified, information. John told Z Octan was planning something on Forring for which a lot of mechs are going to be needed. Zaael's most pressing task was to scavenge Jurin II for useful mech parts and take them to Forring to build mechs for the other Octan members. After their meeting John set course to Forring and Zaael made his way back to his shuttle where he had the perfect speeder for this scavenge hunt: The OC.tr0m, a heavy duty speeder. After collecting loads of useful parts and loading up the shuttle Zaael set course to Forring. Having arrived there Z took his speeder and made his way to the Octan base on F03. There he unloaded the speeder and started building the first mechs for the battle to come.
