BOLT Mission: Industrial Revolution - Part 1 [Private]

PostPosted by Reál Midas » Sun Sep 11, 2011 12:30 pm

Mission Name: Industrial Revolution: Part 1

Operation: WEP TECH

Mission Statement: Smoke has been reported several times now, each one coming directly to the BOLT HQ. Smoke reported in at least two different locations. Theres only one problem.

With a plume of smoke that giant, no one ever reported seeing or smelling fire. A smog has fallen over the area's surrounding the pillars of smoke rising into the air. Both places are reportedly at the base of the third mountain to the east of Kumogakure. Smoke is said to be seen from both sides of the mountain, covering the top in a thick smog.

BOLT intel was extremely difficult to get, with Pandora unable to provide helpful information. One scout died climbing the heavily smoked out mountain to gain intel. Fortunately we do have intel on both sites.

There are two large buildings with smokestacks, each forged of brick and stone. Our reports say they are being used to make 'large steel objects' They are both placed on opposite sides of the mountain, each on a ledge with only one path leading up to it. There are guard towers on each path to prevent unwanted people from coming in. The path is big enough to bring a convoy up, but with the defensive position of the guard towers, trying to infiltrate from those paths would be extremely risky. The best way would be to parachute down from an SPECTOR and infiltrate from above. That is the goal.

We need two teams, one for each building to go in and collect information on the happenings of the 'buildings' and try to pick up blueprints or battle plans from each one. This will be a dangerous mission. Be sure to keep the mistakes to none. Stealth is key, killing only as a last resort.

Good luck.

Objectives:
-SPECTER parachute jump
-Gain access from roof
-Find plans and blueprints for buildings/production
-Get out and get to extraction point at base of mountain

Operatives:
-Silver Team: Sebokik Nara-S1/Tatsuo Soratodai
-Gold Team: Otoha Nue-O2/Omoi Ryuujin-O1




The wind blew smog through the open door of the SPECTOR. Normally this would be bad, but it didn't phase Sebokik as his mask filtered the impurities out of the air. The sharp gusts of wind common at this altitude blew past, making his hair blow to the side as he stared out of the door before turning back to the three BOLT operatives all strapped into their seats. All wore parachute packs for this mission. Each had a BOLT mask unique to the person. Sebokik's was unique in the fact that it wasn't pure white, but more of a dark gray with whorls of white on it. These masks changed their voices to a mechanical monotone and filtered out poisons up to a point, meaning the smog outside the Specter wouldn't affect them. The smog however, was the least of their problems.

Static shook Sebokik from his contemplation as he stood there, leaning against the door, letting the wind rip past. The pilot came over his headset and gave him the ETA. Sebokik straightened and walked to the center of the aisle, standing right in front of the Operatives. Sebokik switched on the open channel that all BOLT masks had.

"Alright! ETA till GOLD team jump is five minutes! SILVER team will be jumping five minutes after that!" Sebokik held up five fingers just in case any missed the words over the sound of the wind howling past. "Remember! We are BOLT. Mistakes don't exist in our world."

"Say your prayers now. You won't get a chance to say them again. You all know the deal. Once you've landed, GOLD team, radio in that you've landed. The next transmission will be once your in possession of the package. Good luck to you all."

Sebokik checked his watch and looked back at the pilot. The pilot held up a single finger, signifying the time and his opinion of the commander. Sebokik grinned at the joke and walked over to the open doorway of the Specter.

"GOLD team prepare yourself, T minus 30 seconds till jump!"

Spoiler:
Raika/Arzur. You guys can rp your own jumps. Mephilis, after they post, you can post that you waited five minutes or whatever and we'll post our jumps. Remember, the Specter is basically a pimped out bird, just in case Mephilis didn't know.

She liked the gliders better.

Oh well.

The sole female Operative on the mission stretched her arms over her head in apparent relaxation, her face hidden behind a black BTM detailed with sapphire Ryuujinscale to give the illusion of a dragon's head, delicately curved horns jutting back from the mask, Koumori-steel plates going down her neck like armor. No hair was visible. Her gloves and boots bore short Koumori-steel spikes in the form of claws. Her arms plopped back into her lap as Sebokik-sempai began speaking.

Just another flown-in Operation.

Just another militaristic briefing.

Kinda soothing, really.

"Alright! ETA till GOLD team jump is five minutes! SILVER team will be jumping five minutes after that! Remember! We are BOLT. Mistakes don't exist in our world. Say your prayers now. You won't get a chance to say them again. You all know the deal. Once you've landed, GOLD team, radio in that you've landed. The next transmission will be once your in possession of the package. Good luck to you all."

"No one dies," she murmured, finding her voice in perfect tandem with her beloved partner's. She smiled behind her mask, her hand finding his and lightly squeezing it.

"GOLD team prepare yourself, T minus 30 seconds till jump!"

Up she went, onto her feet, perfectly balanced in the turbulence as she checked her beloved's parchute equipment, and then he checked hers.... And she took a flying leap through the smog and into the sky, diving down headfirst in an exhilirating rush.

Down, down.... And at just the right moment, she released her parachute, a born flier's instinct kicking in despite the smog blurring her vision.

She heard her partner's open shortly afterwards.

Gold Team was on the prowl.

"Parachutes..."

Well that was... low-tech. A glider would have been fun, more convenient... To be entirely honest, Otoha could have flown down under his own power, and it wasn't even that far of a logical stretch to think that he could have simply donned his armor and just tanked the landing... although then there would have been the sound issue, what with the obvious resulting explosion of several tons of force and etherial steel slamming into the earth from a fall of several thousand feet...

Still, parachutes?

"Alright! ETA till GOLD team jump is five minutes! SILVER team will be jumping five minutes after that! Remember! We are BOLT. Mistakes don't exist in our world. Say your prayers now. You won't get a chance to say them again. You all know the deal. Once you've landed, GOLD team, radio in that you've landed. The next transmission will be once your in possession of the package. Good luck to you all."

"No one dies," he murmured softly, his words matching Omoi's as he gently squeezed her hand.

"GOLD team prepare yourself, T minus 30 seconds till jump!"

Otoha allowed Omoi to check his parachute, before inspecting hers as well. Everything seemed to be in working order, and if it came down to it, it looked like the parachutes would be easy enough to get off so they could simply fly, should things happen to go terribly wrong. Having a backup plan never hurt anybody. A moment after his partner had jumped from the Specter, he stepped free of the opening, pitching forward into a smooth head-first dive, making the motion so casual it seemed as if he had just been stepping out to get a breath of fresh air.

As far as fresh air went, there was plenty once he broke free of the smog, rushing past his mask at a high speed. Tucking his knees in towards his chest, he oriented his position so that his feet were facing the ground, and pulled the rip-cord, freeing the parachute.

Sebokik would have had no idea, but the GOLD team designation he had assigned fit perfectly.

This was his first official BOLT mission. He was a little nervous to be truthful, but he was mainly anxious. His mind was free from concern, disallowing himself to fall victim to the worry of things going wrong, dying, getting injured, or failing. No, he was nervous because he was a little concerned he wouldn't be fully useful. His anxiety was placed in the opposite direction, however. He was edgy and felt ready to jump into the fry, to start his first real mission and show what he was made of; if he was made of anything.

Sitting still, Tatsuo formulated varying thoughts in his head; mainly, things came down to following Sebokik's orders and making sure he was useful in every way possible. He'd already checked his gear and noted that everything was in working order. With a little more control of his element, he wouldn't even need the parachute... But it would still be fun to use.
Silently, he watched as Omoi and Otoha lightly gripped each others hands. He let his eyes rest on GOLD team for a moment before they launched themselves out of the Specter. Hmmn...

With those two gone, Tatsuo stood up and stretched his limbs out for a moment, and rotated some of his joints. Balancing himself against the way-and-sway of the Specter, Tatsuo looked to Sebokik for instruction to jump. He was covered completely in the black cloak he always wore, hiding him from neck to shin. His hood was down from the winds and resting against his back. Underneath the cloak, he adorned ordinary shinobi armor that was easy to move in and still held some defensive capabilities.

It was about time now...

Again, his eyes met with Sebokik. His mouth didn't move - it didn't have to - the question had already been silently asked. He was ready to go.

Spoiler:
OOC: Sorry about the lateness. Life's been busy.


Sebokik watched the two go, Omoi and Otoha, GOLD team, the couple of BOLT. They were probably the best team he had as two individuals moving not unlike a single entity comprised of two people. It would be a loss if one of them were to die a very painful and torturous death on a mission like this.

Sebokik hoped that could be avoided.

Nazo though otherwise.

Sebokik turned to Tatsuo as the boy stretched and readied himself for the jump. Sebokik did a bit of his own mental preparation, letting his mind go blank. The image of shadow in the tree being blown by the wind grew in his mind, it's shadow split into two shadows, each showing similar sides of the same tree. The image calmed him and allowed his breathing to remain normal as he held up his hand to show Tatsuo the thumbs up in ten seconds.

Then Sebokik began counting down visibly, holding up one hand as the seconds ticked away.

5...4...3...2...1...GO! GO! GO!

Sebokik slid the bay door open and watched as Tatsuo took his flying leap, Sebokik going out right after him. Suddenly everything was loud and the sound of the air rushing by hit Sebokik like a hammer and wrapped him up in the feeling of weightlessness as he plummeted towards the ground. Sebokik didn't pull his parachute yet, waiting to make sure Tatsuo's was able to pull up and get his parachute working.



Spoiler:
OOC: Alright, now we can all post landing and all that. 3-4 rounds of posting about exploring and sneaking around and killing off guards, whatever you want to do. After those rounds, we'll have each team complete it's objectives, plant a few minor explosives before leaving, and then everyone meets up and we do our mad dash back to Kumo. Any questions?

Almost to the ground--

Omoi phased her parachute, dropping down silently the remainder of the way to land in a crouch, waiting a moment for her beloved to join her before radioing in, "GOLD Team has landed."

And now they needed to maintain radio silence until the objective was complete.

She nodded to her beloved before they took off through the trees, senses on alert for any guards and carefully avoiding making themselves known.

Kill only as a last resort.

And so they would avoid any chances of that occurring.

Otoha landed just as softly, a single hollow boom which died as quickly as it had began ringing out just before he touched down, along with a flash of golden light kept concealed by his parachute. His descent abruptly brought to a complete halt, he detached the parachute and landed lightly in a crouch, gathering up the mass of cloth and wire and crushing it into as small a ball as he could, shoving it all back into the backpack it had been kept within. Although he would have preferred to destroy it straight up, there wasn't time; instead he slung it around behind his back, sealing it away within the rectangular device ever-present under his long coat.

Each hand dropped down to his calves, grasping the hilt of a blade strapped to each one. When he finally stood, the blades were freed, twin daggers, thin and deadly with a twelve inch blade. After taking a moment to let his draconic senses take charge, he followed after Omoi, quickly vanishing from sight as he blended in with their surroundings, his dark long coat making sticking to the shadows all too easy. Stealth had been a slight challenge in his first operation, years before; now it was as much a second nature as breathing.

Once given the signal, Tatsuo launched himself out of the side of the Spectre and into the open air. Descending rapidly, the wind blasted him fiercely - rippling each facet of loose clothing, each hair, and even his skin. With his body spread out to resemble something akin to an "X," Tatsuo fluttered through the air somewhat slowly. Of course, he was still descending incredibly fast; this speed was barely half as fast as he could be descending. Knowing this, Tatsuo closed his legs and brought his arms to his torso to make his body more dart-like; more aerodynamic. As a result of this, the speed of his descent rapidly and exponentially increased, allowing him to slice through the smog like a hot knife through butter. Ever cognizant of the world around him, Tatsuo - when the time was right - released his body once more to make an "X" before yanking at the string which would trigger his parachute. The weightlessness he experienced while in free fall was indeed fun, but nothing beyond what he was capable of inducing on an everyday basis with his Geton element. Still, the experience was adrenaline inducing.

Now much, much, more slowly descending Tatsuo looked back to view his leader, Sebokik. Very briefly, the image of he and his parachute breaking free from the smog could be seen; but it'd be just a second before he vanished again. His feet met the ground and the parachute fell behind him, blanketing the surface at his feet lightly. Freeing himself from the latches which bound him to the parachute, he rolled it up appropriately and stuffed the large cloth back into the backpack.

Adorned in his black cloak, Tatsuo reached behind him and folded up the hood; making sure his face was also now shrouded in shadows. Now, he looked like nothing more than a black figure - a shadow within the shadows. Quietly, he whispered to Sebokik. "Ready to move: on your command, Captain."
