H.S. Storage (Broadshield/Mono&Pastel)
« on: January 19, 2016, 10:12:44 pm »
Several levels below the skyscraper, the chilled air is met with the incandescent lighting to reveal a large storage area. A maze of boxes and crates filled with a wide variety of items from household items to imported weapons break the large room apart. A loud pop is heard before the stomp of Zulu’s hooves; the Minotaur looking around for the two Equinox guards. A flash of light emerges a short distance away from him, marking off the location of his enemy. His smile couldn’t be any wider as he marches forward, carrying his hammer with some excitement. “Come on Sasha, let’s go hunting.”
"You'll always need agents like us. To do things that most cannot."

Yep, this day just got weirder and weirder. First, Broadshield was involved in some talk about the necessity and the morality of using sleeper agents in a war. Next, even more militants enter the room, weapons pointed at everyone. After that, he gets enveloped in a bright light, and he, as well as the other Equinox soldiers, including Monochrome/Pastel (he sometimes forgot who was who) end up in what looks like a storage area.

Hearing Zulu talk in the distance, he motions for the others to get down and hide. Himself and two guards hide behind cover, the third for some reason hides inside a cardboard box. Motioning the others to stay where they are and stay silent, he moves around the basement quietly, looking for Zulu

(Will wait for Monochrome/Pastel to post)

Pastel, having taken over while Monochrome reorient area himself with the area, silently moves out of his hiding spot and around to the edge of the storage facility, shadowing Zulu. Minotaur. He's big, compared to others of his kind. Fondness of a hammer called "Sasha". High risk target. Be careful Pastel, this one's not like our usual hunts. He's gonna take a beating before he goes down. Any suggestions on tactics? Aim for the legs. And for Celestia's sake stay out of reach of his hammer. I have to use this body too. Thankyou Monochrome. Pastel silently moves behind Zulu, giving a kick to his back legs before rolling behind a set of boxes.

Marching through the storage room, Zulu continues to look for his targets. Upon getting kicked, Zulu stumbles forward, but stays on his feet. Letting out a roar in annoyance, he looks around for the perpetrator, not knowing where they have gone.

Meanwhile, Broadshield and his vanguard move through the storage area quietly. Eventually, they find Zulu. "Alright, what we need to do is incapacitate him, then apprehend him. We need to get him off his feet." Suddenly, one of the guards moves out of cover, and kicks Zulu in the back, before he moves away. Eyes on his target, Zulu begins to takes swings at the pony. "Need some help here!" He calls out to everyone.

((I'm controlling Zulu BTW))

Shifting behind a crate, Monocrhome yells out, "Hey ugly! I bet legs day mustn't be a thing for Minotaurs, eh?" before rolling out of the way of any incoming hammers. Why did you say that Monochrome? To stop him from thinking straight, P. And obviously to distract him from Broadshield. Coming out behind the agents, Monochrome pulls out the explosive crystal and turns the strength dial to 3. Not enough to wipe out the entire floor, but just enough to leave a glaring crater. "HEY BROADSHIELD! LOW POWER YING YANG TO THE LEGS! GET BACK!" With that Monochrome shifted into Pastel and dashed away, hoping that Pastel's stealth tactics would be enough to get close to the giant Minotaur.

All around Zulu, soldiers are popping up and attacking him, then running away. "Come and fight me cowards!" He bellows. Seeing another soldier come up to attack him, he takes as swing at him with his hammer, finally making contact. The soldier goes flying into a large stack of crates as if it were a baseball. Upon hitting the stack, several wooden crates are smashed to pieces, their contents falling out of the crates, meanwhile, the solider lying there isn't moving.

Meanwhile, Broadshield watches in horror as one of his vanguard is sent flying into a stack of items, and he isn't getting up. "DAMN YOU ZULU!" he calls out. Grabbing his throwing knives, he throws a large amount of them at Zulu. Zulu makes an attempt to dodge the knives, the majority missing him, but one or two are embedded into his sides. The minotaur then bellows in rage and pain. Hearing Monochrome, he pulls his other two guards away from the rampaging Minotaur as the crystal is thrown at Zulu's legs. With an earth shattering explosion, the crystal goes off, leaving a large crater where the crystal was, as well as Zulu. Surrounding crates and shelves are either blown away, or are completely destroyed by the blast. Most of the lights are destroyed, leaving the room in near complete darkness. Broadshield and his guards get up, inspecting the crater. "Where did Zulu go?" he asks. "Right behind you." a voice from the shadows is heard. "FALL BACK!" he calls out to the group. Just as Zulu swings his hammer, his guard jumps up and kicks him in the face, barely missing Broadshield and his other guard. In retaliation, Zulu grabs the guard by his legs and throws him against the wall, crumpling. "MONOCHROME! ON ME! WE NEED TO FALL BACK AND COME UP WITH A PLAN!" he calls out to him in the darkness, taking his last guard, he pulls him away from Zulu, eventually finding a decent area to hide until they are regrouped and they have a plan.

Dammit dammit dammit dammit DAMMIT. I thought that would work. Pastel sprinted with Broadshield and the other Equinox agents from Zulu. "I thought that would work Monochrome!" Careful P, your slipping into old habits. Sorry. What now though? Given how fast Zulu moves, I'm betting that getting him off his feet is our only option. Sounds reasonable. But how do we do that? With a pallete 'splosion. I thought we agreed not to call it that. And besides, it's too risky. It's also our only option. Oh and don't get mad, but I brought along some rainbow essence to help with it anyway. All it needs is a little push. I hate you. Love you too P. "Alright everyone, I have a plan. Kinda. I'm gonna magically charge a vial of Rainbow essence, then smash it on Zulu's legs. If charging it works, the rainbow essence will be very acidic, so don't let it touch you. This stuff eats flesh faster than Monochrome eats a chocolate cupcake." Pastel turns her head to Broadshield as they all run. "Sound good Sir?"

Ensuring everyone is safe, Broadshield begins talking. "If that stuff really can eat through flesh, we can't do that. Foxtrot and Saddle Arabia want the Directors in one piece for the trial, I don't think a Minotaur with its legs eaten away by acid would count as one piece." he says, taking a short pause before continuing. "What we need to do is knock him off his feet, and knock him out, cuff him, then send him back to base. After that, we can either help the others, or help with the rest of the Division in evacuating civilians. We can think about it later, but now, the target is Zulu." he says. "Any other ideas?" he asks. "If we need to get him off his feet, we need to stun him so he won't be able to defend himself. Maybe we use the Rainbow Essense to drive him into a corner, flashbangs and smokes on him to stun and disorient him, knock him off his feet, and send him on his way." the guard says. "Pretty solid idea soldier, you have any objections or any other plans Pastel?" he asks, before accidentally knocking something over, and it smashes, indicating their position to Zulu. "Crap" he mutters

Meanwhile, Zulu continues to stumble through the darkness, searching for his hunt, occasionally knocking things over, indicating his position to Equinox. The second he knocks over a vase, he hears something on the other side of the room, indicating his enemies position. Grinning, he now slowly makes his way to where the sound was, under the cover of darkness. "I've got you now." he says to himself.

"Sounds like a good plan sir." Pastel remarks, trying to regain her composure. "If the plan falls through, I can dissolve the floor around him. Make him fall into a pitfall, of sorts." Bugger. I really wanted to see a pallet 'splosion in action. Shut up Monochrome. As Pastel finished telling off Monochrome, hearing the vase smash. "We should get moving sir." Pastel says to Broadshield.

"Sounds good Pastel, lets hope that it doesn't come to that." he says. He couldn't afford to fail once more, the last two times, two of his guards under his command fell to the enemy, and he didn't even know where they were, or if they were fortunate to still be alive. "Some of the lights still work, but neither of us can see each other in the dark. We'll need to lead him into the light, from there, we set off the smokes and the flashbangs, hopefully disorient him, knock him down and out, cuff him, and send him to base. Worse comes to worse, we use that Rainbow Essence on the ground around him and immobilize him. Lets move out!" he says, before diving into the darkness with his last guard, knocking over objects occasionally to attract Zulu to the light.

Meanwhile, Zulu is still stumbling around in the darkness, on the hunt for his prey. Soon he starts to hear items falling to the ground, leading him to the light. Upon arriving at the light, he looks around. There is no pony there, no more sounds, silence, save for his own breathing. Soon he hears something, loud and clear, that cuts through the silence like a blade. "NOW!". At that moment, several small pellets fall to the ground, each of them exploding with blinding light and deafening bangs, disorientating Zulu. As he tries to swing his hammer around, smoke soon starts to rise from the ground, completely filling the space around him, further blinding him. "Go! Now!" the voice is heard again. Zulu can only hope to continue swinging and hope he hits something.

Pastel shifts to Monochrome as he dives into the smoke, because he would be harder to see. Monochrome then starts letting off quick kicks to Zulu's legs, hoping to find a weak spot. As he kicked, Momochrome ducked and weaved around Zulu's hammer, hoping not to get hit.

The flashbangs and smoke grenades didn't help Zulu as he was kicked several times in the legs by multiple targets. Eventually, he is forced onto one knee after taking damage from the brutal kicks to his legs. Eventually, the disorientation wears off, so now all Zulu can see is the smoke around him. Every so often, a figure dances in the shadows, prompting Zulu to take a swing, only to miss and get assaulted once again. Eventually the smoke lifts, triggering the water system. Both Zulu and Broadshield facing each other, weapons drawn. As Zulu takes a swing with his hammer, Broadshield jumps out of the way, the hammer embedding itself into the wall. Charging Zulu, Broadshield lands several kicks and hits from his sword on Zulu's other leg, eventually bringing him down on both knees. Just as he's about to knock him out, Zulu goes and backhands Broadshield, sending him flying into a stack of boxes. Broadshield lies in the ruined stack dazed, but conscious and alive. Soon, Zulu dislodges his hammer and approaches Broadshield. He looks at Broadshield, knowing that he's won. As he is about to deliver the killing blow, the last guard dashes from the shadows, standing over his commander, taking the hit. The guard goes down after that. With that, Broadshield's rage explodes, now undazed, and he tackles Zulu's head, bringing him to the ground. Broadshield lands several punches to Zulu's face, looking bloodier with each punch, until finally Zulu is out cold. Getting down, he limps over to the fallen guard, checking his vital signs. He's gone. "Monochrome, Pastel, whoever, find the other guards, then bring them to me. After that, we'll bring Zulu in." he says. Turning on his headset, he changes channels until he starts to speak into the microphone. "This is... Broadshield... to Equinox base... Zulu, minotaur... apprehended... prepare for retrieval... get medics... on standby... 3 soldiers dead, I'm injured, and we may have an extra injured soldier... over" he says between breaths, exhausted and injured from the fight.
"We read you loud and clear commander, prepping medics and base for retrieval, over."
Putting his headset away, he collapses on the ground, exhausted, tired, and injured, adrenaline draining from his body, replaced with pain.

((How is it that Mono/Pastel escaped unharmed lol. 2 OP pls Nerf))

Monochrome watched in awe as Broadshield beats Zulu down. Remind me never to get on Broad's bad side. Duly noted. Now if you wouldn't mind, could I please take over. I know how bad you are at dealing with bad injuries What inju...oh crap. Monochrome looked back to see one of his rips sticking out. "Ouch." Monochrome mutters as he passes out on the floor.
Taking over, Pastel gets up and starts to look for the others. Once she found them all, Pastel dragged them over to where Broadshield was laying. "Sir, that's everyone. Permission to pass out from exhaustion?" Pastel asks before dropping to the floor anyway.

Broadshield sat in silence as Monochrome/Pastel retrieved the other soldiers. As he sat, he assessed his injuries. Broken ribs, possible back injury. Sore all over. Yeah, today went well. He then assessed the battle. These directors were experienced fighters. They weren't any mercenary, guerrilla force, or drug syndicate henchmen, these were experienced fighters. His soldiers were some of the best in the Manehatten Division, and now they all lay dead. It took 5 of them to take down a minotaur, he then wondered how the others would be able to defeat the remaining 4 Directors. Crawling over to the unconscious body of Zulu, he put his hands behind his back, and got the handcuffs ready while getting his headset ready. "This is... Commander Broadshield... to Home Base... Sending Zulu... Stand by... for retrieval... sedate... him... over."
"Roger that Commander, prepping prisoner for extraction, whenever you're ready. Over."
With that, he puts the handcuffs on Zulu, and with a bright green light, Zulu is gone.
"This is Home Base, Zulu has been retrieved. Sedating now. Over."
Switching channels, he continues to speak into the headset.
"This is... Commander Broadshield... to Medical Team... we need... medical assistance... 3 soldiers dead... 2 injured..."
"Roger that commander, we're sending medics to you. Sit tight. Over"
With that, he turns off his headset, and watches as Pastel returns with the other soldiers, only to collapse herself.
"Permission... granted"

Eventually, a group of medics make their way into the basement. They look around in awe at the scene, but quickly go back to tending the soldiers. The three fallen soldiers are carried away on stretchers, their bodies covered by sheets. Meanwhile, other medics on the scene are tending both Broadshield and Pastel. Broadshield then learns that he has a broken rib cage, the medics saying he was lucky that he didn't break his spine. "Alright sir, we're going to get you out of here." one of the medics say.
"The others... need help... I have to go and help them."
"With all due respect sir, you are in no condition to fight."
"Well then... do something to fix me up! I have to go and help them."
"Alright sir, I'll see what I can do, but first we need to get out of here."
After that, the medics carry both Broadshield and Pastel out of the basement, into the open.
