Badass Space Dragon 2.0 - Round 8 - Bad Penny


#1

Ella: Why must you always be late?

Don Mondo: Heh heh… Little robot, if I showed up on time, no one would think I was so mysterioussss.

Ella: You missed the entire meeting.

Don Mondo: There weren’t any snacks. Anyhow, this is the real meeting. Just the three of ussss.

Pete: Ugh… I hate meetings.

Don Mondo: Well, little robot, what’s the newssss?

Ella: Our scouts were quite effective. They observed Bad Penny mulching several planets for resources. We put broke up some mining facilities but local ships are losing ground to the cubes and Unizone hasn't been any help.

Pete: We’re calling the blasted thing Bad Penny? Why not Evil Coin or Space Buck?

Ella: It's shaped like a penny, Space Buck wouldn't make any sense.

Pete: Was that a pun? You sly robot!

Ella: We are up against something more intelligent and more dangerous than we can imagine. This AI has turned our pool of collective greed into processing power and it has decided that it flat out wants to destroy us.

Pete: But why?

Don Mondo: I’ll tell you why. Because we’re bastards. This thing isn’t angry, it’s scared. It’s a smart machine, it’s run billions of scenarios, peeked into every possible future. It knows we’re going to kick it’s assssss.

Dakota: I still can’t believe we made it without so much as a scratch. And the payment’s come through too, along with the mission reports. Take a look.

Browf: … No-one who did Mission 2 took damage? That can’t possibly be right…? CAN IT? Oh, wait just the bee-man’s ship took damage, almost wrecking? That ain’t right…

Dakota: That’s not all… I’ve pressed refresh several times and I can’t get a logical balance out of the system. It seems like the SpaceBits blockchain is corrupted, all we’re getting is mojibake.

Round 8 - Bad Penny

Nilah takes up three tables at Duck’s Pond with her disassembled mini-cannon. In the corner, a nervous space hedgehog regurgitates some liquids.

Logan: There’s a new plan boys, we’re going to fly right up Lincoln’s nose with our guns blazing.

Dwart: I’m a girl.

Logan: You’re kidding.

Phlek: Who’s Lincoln?

Dwart: That’s the guy on the penny, didn’t you read the briefing?

Phlek: Nope. Never read the first briefing, it always changes. Just give me a flask and tell me what to shoot.

Logan: That’s a very disturbing attitude.

Phlek: I’ll disturb your attitude.

A fight breaks out and Crabby wades in to pull apart the mess of squabbling lobsters.

Jorge: May I have another drink?

Duck: What do you have to trade? I’m not taking your shit bits.

Jorge: Could I perhaps just have a free drink since we’re all going to die anyway?

Duck: ANYONE HERE THINK WE’RE GOING TO DIE?!?

Nilah: Not me!

Duck: That’s right!

Duck tosses Nilah a bottle.

Duck: Hey Watford… nice hat.

Duck tosses Watford a bottle.

Duck: You still think we’re going to die?

Jorge: I think we’re going to do just fine.

Duck: That’s the attitude.

Duck pours a tall drink and slides it across the bar.

Missions


Note: At least one pilot must succeed in each of the first three mission to destroy the Bad Penny and save Charybdis.


Mission 1 - The Columns
There are twelve column shaped guns on the underside of the Bad Penny that need to be taken out. They each deal an incredible amount of damage so watch your hull.

Restrictions: This mission is open to any ship.
Rewards if Successful: +2 GRIT, Full Repairs
Risks: 12x Column Cannons (80-120 Damage based on SH & EN). You have a 2% chance or (100-EN-ST)% chance to be hit by each Column Cannon. Whichever is greater.


Mission 2 - Little Man
The heart of the ship, the power source, is located on the underside between the central column guns. It looks like a guy in a chair. This is where we will need to concentrate at least 300 cumulative FP. If things have gone well with Mission 1, you’ll have to dodge debris from the column cannons.

Restrictions: This mission is open to any ship.
Rewards if Successful: +2 GRIT, Full Repairs
Risks: 20x Debris (3-7 HP based on EN & LK and additional chance to dodge based on EN & LK)


Mission 3 - Up the Nose
We need agile ships with good EN, ST and FP to run the Lincoln trench. This is where we’re going to find the brains of the ship.

Restrictions: This mission is open to any ship.
Rewards if Successful: +2 GRIT, Full Repairs
Risks: 6x Shizzlers (15-25 Damage based on SH & EN). You have 40-60% chance to dodge each Shizzler based on LK, ST & EN.


Mission 4 - Coin Operated
You are being hailed by the Bad Penny. It offers rewards beyond your wildest dreams. If you accept this mission, pick one player to antagonize during their mission. You will deal damage to them based on your comparative statistics and distract them from their goal.

Restrictions: This mission is open to any ship.
Rewards if Successful: +B2,000,000.0000
Risks: You incur the wrath of the fleet. There’s a pretty good chance that the Bad Penny will still destroy you.


Note: At least one pilot must succeed in each of the first three mission to destroy the Bad Penny and save Charybdis.

@codinghorror Please close this thread on Sunday, May 3rd at 10am AKST (11am PST). Thank you!


#7

Ah, well. Been a while since I’ve taken on a target, but seeing as there’s no choice, taking out the power source seems like the least violent option.

On my first strafing run, I drop that Strange Crystal on the Little Man for a little extra ooomph.

A wise man once said, “It’s better to die with a hat on your head than to live hatless.

Under the circumstances, I’d rather die drunk than hatted.

Bottom’s Up!

@patrace

Oh, Mr. Mondo, your magnanimity knows few bounds. I have set my ironic sights on that questionable Bee-Keeper’s Hat of yours:

###How I think I look in a Bee-Keeper’s Hat:

###How other captain’s view me in a Bee-Keeper’s Hat:

###How my ship views me in a Bee-Keeper’s Hat:


Nevertheless, I do believe I shall be availing myself of Mssr. Pete’s repair shop. While his personal hygiene and legal claim to much of the tools in his shop may be questionable, the quality of his work is beyond reproach.

Additionally - and having utterly nothing to do with any alleged “pet” names my ex-wife-queen may have used for certain portions of my anatomy - I shall throw my 40FP and non-purchased hat into the ring for Mission 2 - Little Man.

The hive-ship Those Who Deem Inappropriate the Singing of Disney Songs in the Office Bathroom Are Not Worthy of Acknowledgement has finally accepted my reasons, justifications and emotional-appeals, and has re-folded himself in 3-space as a signal of agreement:

#If we do not all emerge together on the other side of this Fiscal Crisis, I want you all to know it has been a pleasure to share drinks and smoke with you, and to serve alongside you all.

Aboard the Somewhat:

Quirky stares at the Omni-Pay™ .

StarBits: bÈÉ.¶00

Quirky: “Liz-Tenant. Look at this thing. Maybe our apian colleague hacked the system?”

Liz-Tenant: “Could be just broken. You threw that thing pretty hard after last mission’s…losses…”

Quirky: “Yeah. Is the Flag Boy okay?”

Liz-Tenant: “His eye is starting to open up.”

Quirky: “And the twirly?”

Liz-Tenant: “She did great, captain! If anything, she loved the extra bing!

Quirky: “I’m pleased. Give her a treat while we’re in dock, yes?”

Liz-Tenant: “Aye, sir. Will you be at Duck’s, sir?”

Quirky runs a clawed hand over his head.

Quirky: “We all end up at Duck’s, Liz-Tenant.”


At Don Mondo’s:

Greeter-Tron:BLIP! Don Mondo’s has been entered by you. You are welcomed to Don Mondo’s. How can you be helped by Don Mondo’s?”

Quirky: (Taps his own noggin.) “See this head? It’s a pretty stupid head. I’d like to cover it. I’ve got this coupon?”

Quirky: “What have you got? I’m partial to a pillbox, and if you’ve got one with a feathery fascinator, all the better.”


Mission Registration

Mission 3: Up The Nose


Ssssssssss! Thhhhhh!


#10

Query: 2 and 3 call out FP, but then don’t seem to use them anywhere…

@gwwar - wanna swap 4FP for 4ST again? If not - offer’s open to anyone else - don’t need this FP, need ST or EN, so up for a straight swap with anyone.

Give @gwwar 4FP for 4ST.

and @patrace, if we’re running a barter economy, any chance Pete or Ella will offer anything for this Unizone Logo Hoodie?


#11

If y’all are having trouble finding Mr. Mondo’s elevated establishment of haberdashery, have you see THIS?


#12

At Don Mondo’s:

If it’s just what’s on the menu, I’ll be having that Propellor Beanie, and no mistake.


#13

HAT? HAT? HAT LATER?

Pete's Gift
Mission 2 - Little Man
give @daneel 4ST for 4FP

#14

Anyone want more SH?

I could always be stealthier - 4 SH for 4 ST, anyone?

Or I’ll give you 4 SH for 4 EN. Either works for me.


#15

By my tally, we do need more lasers. Lots more.

At this point, I plan on selecting Mission 2 for an addition of 40FP.

Just haven’t convinced the ship yet that that is what we want to do. Sentient ships are a pain in the ass, except when they aren’t. He’s refolded himself yet again, and in a pretty radical design for him:

UPDATE: the below folding has been superseded by another folding above.

If no one from mission 1 bites, I’ll take your offer. My ship is already glowing.


#18

Lamentably, I think we’re limited to swapping out 4 of any one stat - I could swap 4 SH for 4 EN with you, but you might be using that.

I just like the idea of making (2+(100-EN-ST)) = 0.

Not least because my SH and EN are already low enough that I have little chance of surviving even one column cannon, so I’d prefer to take them out of the equation.


#19

Oh right rules…

Min-Maxing is fun isn’t it? But, yes, I am using that.

Two small mission clarifications for our hard-working GM:

Given that the mission description calls for FP as a stat, but the outcome doesn’t depend on FP in any way, I was wondering if this mission was 100% accurate?

  1. Math paranoia wants me to confirm that the enemy firing solution is actually (2 + (100-EN-ST)) and not (2 x (100-EN-ST))?
  2. Seems straightforward, but each ship running this mission has twelve potential chances to be struck, yes?
