    [M - E02] A Daring Heist

    Location: E02-Jurin II Tags: Building, Vehicle, Piracy, Spying Job: Explorer After a long vacation, MANTIS had another mission for me. Un-like most of my previous missions, this one involved infiltrating an Octan base and gathering information about a chemical that accelerated plant growth. I was thrilled to find that two of my good friends, Isaac Redsyn and Massi Editoro, were also on the same mission, as well as a MANTIS commo. Isaac was of course assigned to be the driver, which was to be expected. What wasn't expected was the vehicle he would be piloting... An Octan hoverplane. So, you're sure you know how to drive one of these things? Of course I do! I've driven tons of rigs! ... Apparently not enough though. Could you get this thing right side up for once?! I'm trying, I'm trying, but it keeps going every which way! Where are the brakes on this anyways? Hoverplanes don't have br- Massi to helicopter, are you guys ready up there? We might be, if Isaac knew how to drive this... Almost, we're getting into position. Stand by for signal. Roger. In position, proceed with distraction. Yes sir! Here you go little plants, drink up! Go, go go! What was that?! I've got it! Go up, go up! Mission accomplished, good job everyone. Now to take it back to the lab for the scientists to test and analyze. A few more shots of the build: More pictures here: Link It was good to do another AG build, after so many castle builds. C&C welcome!

    [M - E02] Mission B6E02

    Location: E02 Tags: Land Vehicle (boat), Spying Based on the information from our spies, the Octan sub must be somewhere nearby. Keep looking Grayson! Holy periscope! Over there, Sal! Well spotted Grayson! Ready the MANTIS™ Depth Ray©. We’ll disable the sub’s engines and drive it to the surface. Target locked! Firing! Alright Grayson, cut the MANTIS™ Depth Ray©. They’ve had about enough, I reckon. You’re right, they’re surfacing fast! Now remember, we don’t want to add to M.A.N.T.I.S.’s image problem, so try not to kill anyone. There’s no hurry; it’ll take them days to fix the damage to their engines, so just knock them out or throw them overboard. Ugh, PR takes all the fun out of life. Ready to board – go, go, go! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Er, thanks Grayson. I was just about to do the same thing… Yeah, of course. No problem... Excellent. We’ll interrogate this one when she wakes up. This submarine’s probably full of top-secret research or strategic information. I always knew I’d make a good spy. Just wait until I tell- Er, Sal? -everyone about this! I bet- Sal! What? Oh... I knew we should have killed them. --- Thanks for reading! This week I took inspiration from one of the ever made . C&C welcome!

    [O - E02] The Return

    Location: Jurin II - E02 Tags: Land vehicle Priorities changed, time slots changed and the space travelling became less interesting as other interests came to be. An 8-months pregnant wife, new house, a relative in a galaxy far far away, a different job. Life changed. Zaael was just settling in his new house, new life, when the distress signal came. John Hannibal reached out to the old Octan members. MANTIS has betrayed Octan, in the upper regions of the Gates, while Kawashita backstabbed them in the lower belt. Octan took an arrow to the knee, but won't give up and needs every help they can get to keep on fighting and defend what they have worked so hard for to get. Zaael knew what he had to do as soon as John's call came in. Leave the wife, the new life, for a while and pick up the screwdrivers and cogwrenches, for this is going to be a tough fight and Octan can use all the help they can get. He said his goodbyes and promised to return as soon as the little one is ready to come into our universe. Big Z set course to Jurin II to meet up with John, Pombe and the others and hear first hand what is to be expected of him. More pics:

The datacore has been removed from the ship, but there's no sign of the Ophelia, or of explorer Caslaugh-Sing. The M.A.N.T.I.S ship crashed in the middle of a hydrothermal vent field, so it's possible the Ophelia was damaged by one of the plumes, but I'm not picking anything up on our sensors.” “Roger that, Dragonfly. Stand by. Octan Command to Engineering Team.” “Go for Engineering Team.” “Have you determined the maximum dive time for the Ophelia?” “That's affirmative, command, we just finished our calculations. Ignoring all safety parameters, Ophelia can stay submerged for up to 18 hours. After that time, there will not be sufficient oxygen to support life.” “How long has she been down there?” “Sir, she started her dive 26 hours ago.” “Copy that. Octan Command to all units, I'm suspending the surface search for Explorer Caslaugh-Sing. All Dragonfly Boats, retrieve your submersibles and return to base. Air units, continue to fly grid pattern 3-delta – there's still a chance that she surfaced somewhere off course, and has been unable to communicate. CLAPPIE, any luck locating Lu's CLAPPIE unit?” “Sorry boss, Lu's CLAPPIE is missing from the network. It would appear that the Ophelia has been lost." "Alright. Damn. ... Let's get packed up - we still have a war to fight." -------------------

    [O - E02] All The Live Long Day

    Location: E02 Jurin II Tags: Science, Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // As the corporation continues to try and protect itself I was transferred from the OCS Belle Homme over to our newest battleship the OCS Excelsior. Most people seem to refer to it as the OCS Excessive. I guess when CEO pombe decided to have it built his explanation was: "Everyone knows that bigger is better. Therefore biggest is best." It produces enough electricity to power the main cities on Farmolis. It produces enough thrust to actually impact planetary rotation. And it has enough weaponry to bombard a planet into being devoid of life. Fortunately with typical Octan efficiency we've automated most functions and have robots do the majority of the work, so despite being the size of a small moon it can be crewed by as few as 10 Octan employees! One of the Weapons Engineers told me they had to upgrade the armor and anchor points of the main triple turret as it initially fired with enough power to actually buckle the plating around it and they had a pressure leak. He said it was lucky our corporation is so invested in robots as they lost a couple robots but no human lives! Once again CEO pombe tasked ED-208 with our protection on Jurin II. He needed Dr. Allison and myself to head down to the planet for some analysis of some rock chunks to help refine the search for Awesomnium. On the shuttle down to the planet I was temporarily lulled into seeing a dump truck without realizing the scale. It was only once I had figured out that the things next to the dump truck were buildings I recognized the sheer scale of the vehicle! It was absolutely enormous. One of Octan's subsidiary companies apparently made it and it was so massive that they end up breaking it down into many components just to transport it from planet to planet. Once on the surface we made our way to the mining outpost and got to work. ED-208 was ever vigilant on guard while Dr. Allison started her analysis. I decided to get my hands a bit dirty and do a more personal review. I noticed there were different deposits within the sample and even differing qualities of the Awesomnium present. While I'm not a geologist by training, I did find it interesting work. The mining robots we saw were brand new, clearly the corporation values the resources here. I will admit the robots are kind of annoying as every time you talk to them they say "Roger, Roger". ED-208 was clearly amusing himself with his less advanced cousins because he kept asking them things so they would say "Roger, Roger" over and over. The mining outpost buildings were new and very clean. I was actually surprised to find them so sterile given the nature of the job, but one of the workers explained that mining involves a lot of science (like we were doing) and that you wouldn't want contamination causing the corporation to pursue Awesomnium at the wrong place which would be very expensive. Extra Pics: Had to remove one side to get it to balance on end...

    [O - E02] Oceanographer's Choice

    Location: E02 - Jurin II Tags: Exploration, Spaceship Lu's Log - 31 Janurali 3816 Back on Jurin II. Damn. The first time I was here, I found something horrific. The second time I was here, I almost died. Hopefully the third time will be the charm. One of our colonists shot down a M.A.N.T.I.S scout craft which had been threatening them. The report HQ passed along said that the ship was mostly intact when it crashed into the ocean, but it sank into deep water. They want me to take the Ophelia and see if I can recover the ship's data core and NavComputer. The descent will take a few hours, so I have time to ask CLAPPIE about a conversation I had last week that's been bugging me. Lu, we've reached 3500 meters and are approaching the M.A.N.T.I.S. craft. Alright, prepping the plasma cutter. Cut complete. Retracting cutter, and deploying the manipulator arms. Easy... easy ... got it! Stowing cargo and locking the arms. CLAPPIE, let's go home. Lu, wait. I didn't say anything earlier because I didn't want to distract you, but our sensors are picking up a powerful gravitational anomaly - one that wasn't detected from the surface. And Lu, there's something else. I'm picking up a faint signal which seems to match that of the Explorien ship Pioneer. My parents' ship?!? It seems extremely unlikely, I know. But, that's what the sensors are reading. The signal is coming from a point 5 kilometers to our east, and 1500 meters deeper. Can we make it there and still get back to the surface? Yes, but we will have no margin for error. If anything delays us at the site, we will die. Set a new course, CLAPPIE. I ... I know we wont find them alive, but I need to know what happened. Aye aye, Captain. ---------

    [O - E02] Moving On

    Location: E02 Jurin II Tags: Science, Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // Given the state of war that exists between Octan and the other corporations, all personnel have been instructed to be much more aware of security. Our delightful CEO pombe had requested that Dr. Allison and I investigate a Mantis lab on Jurin II. I became a bit concerned for how volatile things were when he not only insisted that ED-208 escort us, but Sue didn't even object. Perhaps she is still just in mourning after the profound loss of our friend. I always felt like Normal Guy was a good guy, a great employee, and just a really easily relatable fellow. I can't even imagine how his girlfriend Eshey must be doing. But sadly, in times of war, work must keep going. So ED-208 selected his weaponry to keep us safe and we proceeded to the Octan Heavy Cruiser OCS Belle Homme, recently renamed in honor of our departed colleague. Not knowing the strength or position of Mantis forces on Jurin II, ED-208 had acquired an armed scout car for us. We were glad to have both the speed and weaponry on our trip through enemy territory. ED-208 seemed to really enjoy being back in a gunner's seat and both Dr. Allison and I felt far more comfortable with him along. I think Dr. Allison was extra nervous because she seemed to want to hang onto me during the trip, given how new she is to field work and just in general I think that she was looking for reassurance. Upon our arrival at the lab we began our work. Dr. Allison got down to analysis while I began inspecting the various machinery. ED-208 was on high alert for any Mantis forces that might have returned or in case it was a trap. It looked like the lab hadn't seen any activity in a week or two, but it was still active. It was, in typical Mantis fashion, heavily fortified and quite militaristic in nature. They seemed to be doing some research on liquids, but we weren't quite sure why. It eventually became clear that they were pulling in some of the abundant water from the planet to combine it with locally sourced Awesomnium. They seemed to be attempting to develop a beverage for their forces that would imbue the drinker with benefits from the Awesomnium while also hydrating them. We were able to find some data in various computer logs that showed they hadn't been very successful. Dissolving the Awesomnium in the water had proven difficult and they mostly ended up with very gritty water that tasted terrible and instead of the Awesomnium being absorbed it simply wound up getting peed out. We collected all the data we could and proceeded back to the Belle Homme to prepare our report. I did notice that ED-208 vented some of his frustration at the loss of Normal Guy upon the machinery before we left. Such a tragic loss is hitting all of us hard. RIP Normal Guy This diary entry is in honor of our beloved comrade. Extra Pics:

  10. Location: E02 (M.A.N.T.I.S. command ship, Jurin II orbit). Our forces are successfully driving Octan from the planet, but the moon is too heavily fortified. It’s going to take forever to get rid of them. Time is money, Steve. You need to find a way. Quickly. Y’know… I think with some small adjustments my new M.A.N.T.I.S.TM Doom Ray© could probably destroy a small moon… Absolutely not. That would be a PR nightmare. There’s no way we could get away with blowing up a moon full of Octan personnel, tempting though it is. What if it was an ‘accident’? We’d need someone incredibly gullible to pull that off. Hmmm… I had a meeting with HR earlier. There’s a certain pilot. We were going to have him ‘reassigned’ to Project Lambda, but I think he might be perfect for this… Later, on Jurin II: Ok, since your piloting license have been stripped due to "resounding incompetence", you've been assigned to a simple driving mission. Sigh, ok.. What should I do? Just drive this truck down from here, the main base on Jurin II, to the outpost in sector 4. What? This thing? What is it, a laser cement mixer? No, it's a M.A.N.T.I.S.TM Doom Ray© truck. It's a super powerful weapon, that's why it's needed in the outpost. Still looks like a cement mixer to me. Well, since you're surely not firing it, it may well be. Now move on! Yes sir! What is this button over here? Don't touch any button! I bet it will start mixing cement! Click! No! You armed the Doom Ray©! Ok ok, I'm closing it.. maybe it's this other button? Aaaahhh! Stop pushing buttons! In orbit: I’m just saying, when I was CEO, I didn’t flounce around wearing a cape and ribbons. You were only CEO because of a software bug! I don’t see how that’s relevant… Er, Sal? Yes? I assume you somehow fixed it so the Doom Ray© could only target the moon? Um… yeah… totally… why? Because it looks a lot like it’s pointed at us… ... ... ... Looks like M.A.N.T.I.S. just lost a command ship. --- NOTE: The scenes on board the ship reuse a previous build and shouldn't be judged. Thanks for reading!

    [O - E02] Another one bites the dust

    Location: Jurin II - E02 Tags: Exploration, spaceship Lu's Log - 02 Augustali 3815 I'm finally back on Jurin II. I found an artifact here about a month ago and I've been wanting to return to see what kind of progress the science team has made. The initial news is disappointing: after observing the artifact for several weeks, and watching at least three scorpion creatures pass into the field and slowly disappear, the science team sent in one of Dr Long's probes. Unfortunately, the field around the artifact reacted violently and disappeared, taking the artifact with it and injuring several team members. Not to worry, though; our engineers have upgraded a Mudskipper with an array of powerful sensors and magnetic field detectors. If there are any more artifacts in the area, we should be able to find them. I'm lucky enough to take this ship on it's maiden run and I'm looking forward to a day spent flying over beautiful oceans and islands. The cockpit is a bit cramped - the engineers had to run a lot of the wiring through the wall, but the team assures me that the equipment poses no danger to the pilot... ...despite several warning labels stating otherwise. Still, I'm not too worried about it - the engineering team knows what it's doing. And I - whoa - Note from Octan Administrator: at this point, a loud cracking noise is heard, and Ms Caslaug-Hing's audio log shuts off. The next few minutes have been reconstructed using the "Mudskipper's" cockpit voice recorder. 14:23:22 - Lu: What the [expletive redacted] was that? Did we hit something? CLAPPIE, I've got a ton of alarms going off - can you tell what's going on? 14:23:35 - CLAPPIE: Lu, it appears that the weight from the side-mounted scanning unit is damaging the main power conduit. Power levels are dropping rapidly. 14:23: 51 - Lu: Are you able to fix it? 14:23:56 - CLAPPIE: I'm afraid not. It's a mechanical problem, and I'm not yet able to interact with ordinary matter. 14:24:04 - Lu: Mudskipper 4 to JTC [Jurin Traffic Control] Maianday Maianday Maianday, I am losing power and multiple systems are shutting down, over. 14:24:15 - JTC: Mudskipper 4, JTC. Acknowledge your Maianday. Are you able to return to base, over? 14:24:25 - Lu: Negative, JTC. I think I'm going to have to ditch, over. 14:24:31 - JTC: Copy, Mudskipper.

  17. Being short staffed, Z was send out to find Awesomnium on Jurin II by mister Business himself. Z build a scouting vehicle. It packed a bit more juice than anticipated. He did find Awesomnium... among other things. That extra juice came in quite handy... Threw together a quick build in between building my new kitchen.

    [O - E02] Science-ing!

    Location: E02 Jurin II Tags: Science, Octan, Civil, Vehicle // PERSONAL DIARY // After my recent successes I was back on the Axle. It was good getting to work with Dr. Long and see her genius at work in person. It was also a great opportunity to tell her about all my great ideas and suggestions. I had so many. I told her about them whenever we got to work together. Eventually she suggested that we concentrate on our work so that we could maintain focus and not make errors. She is so precise! It was a good point and so from then on I would make sure to follow her to lunch so we could talk over my ideas there. But after a couple days she said she was too busy for lunch and she would just keep working in the lab. What dedication! So I started sending her all my ideas electronically. The next day she found me and said that Octan Corp needed data from Jurin II and that we needed a scientist to oversee the work. I wasn't sure what data she needed exactly so I asked her and she said: "We need all kinds of data. Jurin II needs science-ing! We need the data. Immediately! So you have to go ... NOW!" It was clearly urgent and I was so happy Dr. Long trusted me with such a vital Octan Corp mission. I wasn't even aware "science-ing" was a word, but if Dr. Long used it then it must be. She is so smart. And even though I found out she uses the free shampoo they provide in the showers instead of the stuff you buy in the ship's store her hair doesn't even really smell that much like soap! So I quickly got on a tanker and made my way to Jurin II to collect the data she needed. On my way there I worked with an engineer to repurpose a maintenance craft to carry my needed equipment for analyzing the air and soil for composition and to see if there was any sign of microscopic life. The scanners would also help pinpoint the major veins of Awesomnium. I wouldn't let Dr. Long down! She definitely picked the right man for the job! And I couldn’t wait to discuss my findings in person. Extra MOC proving there are no social boundaries my character isn’t willing to obliviously cross: Apologies for the photo quality, the light went away quickly and I ended up using indoor lights primarily.

    [M - E02] The Jungles of Jurin II

    Location: E02-Jurin II Tags: Vehicle, Exploration Job: Explorer After delivering my rock samples from Guinevere back to HQ, I was asked to test out the new T4 Jeep in the jungles of Jurin II. I accepted the job. Picked up a few plant samples to take back to Dr.Arvan 'Yrich Arkov's lab, but haven't seen much else of interest so far. Wait.. what was that? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Stay back, I've got a MANTIS™ Death Ray Blaster©, and I know how to use it! The alien stared at me with his baseball size eyes, not moving. I relaxed my grip a little on the Death Ray Blaster©. Just then, I had a brilliant idea; I got out a coil of rope and made a lasso out of it. The alien seemed disturbed by this movement, and started to turn away. I threw before he could get to far though, and hauled back on the rope, to stop his progress. It was then a simple matter to tie him to the back of the T-4 and tow him along behind. Big Sal's gonna love this! A few more pics: More pictures here: Link C&C welcome
