    We came here to investigate all potential leads on Kyrie and Naim is our best lead. I suppose it depends on how likely he is to notice a random schmuck vs. someone who kickex his ass.

    Kyrie is the primary target, the rest is peripheral.

    What do we know about Naim's schedule? Is he around often or is this our only chance to talk with him? If he is unbro, might be wise to delay talking to him until we are done with the idol.

    Just a thought, Naim is going to try his very best to kill Senya once we talk to him. For all he knows, Senya killed Kyrie.

    If that's true, why did he let us go? No, he doesn't hate us. He's simly a self interested, conformist twat.
    The idol s peripheral, Kyrie is the primary goal. We know Naim is a busy man from the update, we ought to take this chance while we can.

    This is only practice session, the real filming is later so Naim is bound to be on sets later. All I'm saying if Naim decides to rat on us, this mission is over and we lose possible Cyber Jack leads.

    1A - We're not really a combat hero like Ean. We rely on tech (CF's) or anticipation/mental calculation (our ablities), so I think becoming a hacking master fits well with our character. Imagine taking control of an enemy CF or automated weapons systems. It could be a great force multiplier.

    2A2 - I think A2 still gives us a chance to meet with Naim (I expect things to not go perfectly smoothly and our competence will come out in one way or another) without totally blowing our cover as every stagehand becomes slackjawed at our skills and starts gossiping like mad.

    Well up till now we've been really covert and spy like. Going A1 is surely going to blow our cover to SOMEONE (probably Naim). A2 sounds like a good choice and more congruent to our previous choices. And B is like invisible like, but boring. So the best choice would be A2.

    However I find myself unable to resist the chance for Glory and I choose AA1 :troll:


    Ah well, reason triumphs over mindless vanity. AA2

    What glory is there in thrashing him when we already know we can beat him up? Let's not reveal ourselves to everyone immediately for the sake of some lulz.

    The mech looks like a Xolotl, the first type you fought. Could be a mock up though.

    Beating him up in an inferior frame, possibly just a mock-up? Yeah, I suppose it could be possible, but it seems the thing might be malfunctioning.
    If people really wish to get into that frame, then choosing A in the first choice might make sense here. Have Yua directly interface with the CF will let her quickly assess if and where a malfunction/sabotage might be located.

    As to whether we should just play along, or go outside the script. Well. I think trying to beat Naim is simply stupid. If we want to let him know who we are, I'm sure we could do some little maneouver that'd let him know, without necessarily tipping our hand to everyone else. Sheesh. :roll:

    Still undecided as to what I'll settle on, but I'm tentativel leaning towards AA2.

    Why would he rat us out, though? He let us go and felt guilty when he faced us. He owes us and he knows it and I'm banking on his feelings for Kyrie.
    Attracting his attention now is more low-key than during filming.
    As for the civs ,we're a spook.
    And a note on Naim's "unbro:" he's as much of a pawn here as we were, chances are he didn't have a choice in the matter when he became the Hero,what was he gooing to do,tell the Empress off?He had a career to think of,not everyone has the balls Senya has.

    Beating an experienced pilot of a combat frame in a dodgy CF mock-up is going to raise questions about how we've ourselves gotten the experience to do that. There are only so many who've piloted them so far, see? Now, when all these staff working on this project see some mysterious bodyguard beating the hero of the empire in one of those CFs, that's going to raise questions that are going to go and get leaked. That information is then going to flow really quickly to anyone who might wish to access it... and I'd rather we avoid that for just this moment.

    The thing is, Naim doesn't have to rat us out to get this revealed if we go ahead with this plan to beat him. I see all sorts of losses written all over this potentially, but what's the benefit? That Naim knows who we are? We're going to be on the set for a while, it shouldn't be that hard to come up with a way to more discreetly communicate that message if you're that intent on it.

    B - Bros, treave is being kind to our dumb asses here. Let's take the offer before we fuck ourselves any more. Hello? Missing hand, anyone? ffs..
    A - Brain. Hacking.
    A2 - Pragmatic. No, B. (If B fails, then A2. Seriously, everyone will think we're crazy if we attack Naim without provocation. Edit: also consider the implications of attacking someone unproved. We may strengthen Senya's alter-ego. edit2: And aren't we supposed to be guarding someone rather than fighting in a mech...) I think we should talk to the girl standing next to us. Because...

    treave...she's not...who I think she might be...

    Regardless... We've picked the balls to the wall option one time too many. Last time it got us to the other world with our powers zapped. We need to think things through this time and gather intel. Nothing is stopping us from sneaking into the mech later.


    Baltika9, I have a feeling your love affair with Theseus Jr. won't end until he's stabbing a sword into Senya's neck too. :(

    Flopping to CB.
    Edit: although, if A1 has a better chacne of beating A2, cont me for it.
    I want to know more about this girl, her origins are extremely suspicious (in a bad way, and no, I do not believe she is Kyrie) and she can probably introduce us to Naim (mega-hot starlet, how can Naim pass up the chance to hobnob with her?)

    BTW, bros, there's a reason why I keep calling Naim Theseus. Theseus wasn't evil. He was a really good guy. A victim of circumstance, not unlike Naim may be (we don't really know much about him). Theseus thought he was being merciful when he killed Ean. Had he not been insanely in love, he might have even chosen to help Ean. But that's the point. Naim clearly let's emotions like love and jealousy greatly affect him. That makes him extremely prone to putting us down "for our own good" or "to protect Kyrie" or "because I have no choice. I'm sorry, Senya...". I could easily picture him saying any of the above phrases as he runs us through.

    Anyway, I digress. I'm just saying that we shouldn't trust him without reason. And we have zero reason to trust him. We can use him. Spy on him. Get him to tell us where Kyrie is. (Assuming Kyrie didn't undergo surgery to disguise herself like we did and isn't standing right next to us... treave ) But let's not trust him with our life on a hunch that he's secretly our pal.

    I can categorically deny that I ever planned for Naim to stab Senya with a sword. :rpgcodex:

    Oh ye gods wtf are you people and constantly shunting Senya into the fucking Ean!(note I am using Ean for spotlight because that is what Ean would do jump bravely into the Center stage.)

    This Operation has to be on the DownLow that means no robo piloting.

    Well, I'll vote. I still think the neural interface tentacles are awesome, so my vote ends up like this:

    AA2 - I want to investigate the cause of the droid attack and gain as much information as we can as quickly as we can. A1 seems stupid, we'll have other opportunities to approach Naim that don't involve revealing our superior piloting skills to everyone on set.

    We can investigate the cause of the attack later like the choice said. Just like with the mirror, remember? We could have come back later, but instead f'd up by breaking it immediately. Think about this: our charge just had an attempt on her life. Why would any responsible bodyguard leave now?

    The only point to A is to kick the snot out of Naim. Beyond that, why - when we can achieve similar results with B without drawing pointless attention.

    B in the first choice would indeed fit our current play-style more, we tend to fuck up. Bad.
    But A is usefull for what we want to end up being.
    Still, B. Just to see if we get our arm back. And how the hell we are going to explain that.

    I have a feeling Naim will just leave if no one pilots the frame, which is sad. He could be usefull.
    But if Jacky boy is controlling the frame and starts shenanigans while we are inside, "styaing under the radar" is pretty much out....
    A2 nonetheless. It might be our only way of being able to talk to the guy.

    To get away from the actress so we can put on our shades without it being suspicious, and to hopefully divert her attention temporarily. She might not recognise us if she doesn't get a long enough look. Besides, if we go A2 it won't draw too much attention.

    Also, getting our hands on the frame will synergise well with the first A. If Cyber Jack is still logged in, we may be able to trace him with our interface ability.
