Advance Wars: Shades Of Darkness

Advance Wars: Shades of Darkness
---------------------
Contents:
1. Making Another Campaign?
2. Custom COs go here
3. Campaign Start!
==============
1. Just Another Random Campaign
Now with custom crap! Hi. I'm just a random map maker who decided to make some sort of Campaign.
I don't see myself updating this at all as I usually should but I'll give it a go anyway.
I also draw sometimes as a habit, but it's not as great as it usually should be. Probably because I don't bother with effort.
==============

2. Custom COs go here
Note that there will obviously be more than one CO. (Maybe)

CO Vincent
Army: Yellow Comet
Vincent was an average normal guy living in Macro Land, until war struck out and his town was ravaged as a result. As the only living survivor of the attack, so he joined the Yellow Comet army and eventually a CO to avenge his fellow villagers, including his best friend. Has in interest in science and his own inventions.

Hit: Making Things
Miss: Dishonesty

Power Gauge: xxxXXXXX

D2D: Allied cities in Fog of War act similar to woods. While Fog Of War is around, all units are 120/100.
CO Power - Moonlight
Fog of war appears for the enemy for a day.
(COP boosts are added to units as well as the D2D)
SCO Power - Midnight Break
Fog of war appears for the enemy for 2 days. Counter-attack power increased by 30%. Units in Fog of War now have 140/120. (This doesn't stack with the D2D, this does however stack with the SCOP boosts)

My Comments:
I'd like some constructive criticism on this CO. I'd like to know if it's overpowered/underpowered/balanced.

CO Kate
[url="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n161/Murdock_01/AWCOKate.jpg"]http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n161/Mu...01/AWCOKate.jpg[/url]
Army: Blue Moon
Appearance: She currently wears a fully-buttoned light green short-sleeved polo shirt, a red tie, a light blue jacket (or what seems to be a cardigan), black shorts, black stockings and light blue boots.
Description: Kate appeared in Blue Moon suddenly with no memories of her past life, only knowing her own name and age. She volunteered for the Blue Moon army as a Nurse, where she eventually made a decision to want to be a Commanding Officer instead of a Nurse, so she may find out her past memories and fight for the 'greater good', as Olaf would put it.

Hit: Peace
Miss: Arrogance

Power Gauge: xxxxXXX
D2D - Previously damaged units that were healed in the same turn are 130/100.
CO Power - Heal Wave
All units are healed by 1 HP and gain +1 movement.
(COP boosts are added to units as well as the D2D)
SCO Power - Recovery
All units are healed by 3 HP and gain +1 movement. Previously damaged units that were healed are now 150/130. (This boosts replace the D2D boosts for a turn and stack with the SCOP boosts)
My Comments:
I did run out of ideas for this CO. I'm not even sure if it's balanced or not. So help me out, please. D:

CO Wallace
Army: Black Hole
Wallace is a former vigilante, who liked taking lives for his own sake. He doesn't exactly listen to anyone but himself, so he is part of Black Hole, but will be completely oblivious to what they do, as he takes control of his own life. He sees everything as a tool to him, and he likes the sight of Blood.

Hit: Blood
Miss: Peace


Power Gauge: xxxXXX
D2D: When any of Wallace's units attacks a unit on terrain that has more terrain stars than Wallace's unit, the unit being attacked has it's Terrain Stars halved.
CO Power - Breakthrough
All units are 110/100. All enemy units are treated as if they are on Roads.
SCO Power - Mass Annihilation
All units are 130/100. All enemy units are treated as if they are on 4-star terrain. All enemy units lose 5% defense for every terrain star they have.

[More COs will be posted when I get ideas in the near future][/b]
==============
3. Campaign Start!

It had been a year after the Omega Land war, where the former armies of the Allied Nations: Orange Star, Blue Moon, Green Earth and Yellow Comet strived towards peace and harmony. However, Black Hole, plans otherwise...

In Macro Land
???: I assume the pieces are now in place.
:vonbolt:: Hhhhh... plan Alpha... is ready.
???: Excellent. I would like to know the status of my army.
:vonbolt:: Hhhhh... My officers along with those... two remaining to support us from Black Hole... are ready.
???: Let peace never reign these lands ever again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mission 1 - Training Again?

-Briefing-
Orange Star
:nell:: Andy!
:andy:: Hey Nell! It sure has been a while, hasn't it?
:nell:: I'm afraid there's no time for greetings, Andy. Black Hole has launched another massive attack on Macro Land.
:andy:: Again? They never learn, do they...
:nell:: Unfortunately, Max and Sami aren't around in Macro Land at the moment. So you are the only CO left in Orange Star to defend against Black Hole.
:andy:: I'm ready for whatever Black Hole throws at me!
:nell:: I'm glad your so enthusiastic about this, but I've set up a single round of training for you.
:andy:: Aw....
:nell:: It's just to warm up your abilities, Andy. The CO I've set up for your training is a recent Yellow Comet CO.
:andy:: New, huh? This should be fun!
:nell:: Good luck, Andy!

-------------------------------
:andy:: So, your the new CO?
Vince: Yeah. I assume your Andy of Orange Star? It's great to work with a legendary CO such as yourself.
:andy:: Your not too bad yourself, I heard you rose up to a CO pretty quickly.
Vince: Heh. I'm not that special. Now, let's get to business, shall we?

Andy (Orange Star) [Player] VS Vincent (Yellow Comet) [COM]
Fog of War -> ON
Objective: Destroy all enemy units or capture their HQ.
AI: Attack


Image
---Playable Map, Yay!---
Same settings, except put Sonja instead of Vincent with both the Direct Attacking Skills. Have fun!

Orange Star - Day 1
Vince: I assume you are familiar with the way battles work?
If Yes
:andy:: Don't worry! I remember.
Vince: Excellent. Let's proceed then.
If No
:andy:: Erm... I think I need a refresher.
Vince: Alright then. Let me run down a few things with you.
[Unit explanations, tutorial stuff inserted here]
Vince: That's all I think. Let's get back to the battle, then.

Yellow Comet - Day 1
Vince: I won't hold back, Andy!

Tactics:
:andy:: So, what's this place?
Vince: Oh. This is the War Room.
:andy:: Not the thing on the main menu screen?
Vince: No, Andy, that's a different type of War Room. This is where Commanding Officers discuss strategies and tactics to win.
:andy:: So, are you going to tell me how to win?
Vince: ...Hmmm... that sounds about right.
Vince: Well, your units should be able to take out the initial Yellow Comet units at the start with no problem at all. After that, you can stand your ground and wait. The remainder of my units should be taken out if you plan your attack well. Also, use the woods to your advantage, and don't forget to check woods for enemies.
:andy:: That's it?
Vince: That's all.
:andy:: ...Alright. I'll get back to the battle, then.

Defeat:

Vince: Oh. You lost. I guess you haven't fought for a while, eh? Let's go again, Andy.
:andy:: Alright!

Victory:

Vince: So, the legends are true.
:andy:: I'd like you to come with me to take out Black Hole, Vince!
Vince: Eh? I'm new, though. You'd probably have better luck with someone like Emperor Kanbei.
:andy:: I think we'll work together well, that's why. Let's go!
Vince: Humph. Let's go then.

Mission 2 - Flak Attack 2
--Briefing--
Macro Land - Orange Star
:andyds:: Vince, how much experience have you had as a CO?
Vince: Not much, in terms of real warfare. I practiced a lot. I also watched a lot of videos about past battles, such as the final battle in Macro Land against Sturm.
:andyds:: Yeah, that was a tough one!
Vince: It's interesting to see how Black Hole continues to go through such meaningless battles. Do they ever have a proper purpose?
:andyds:: It doesn't matter what their purpose is!
Vince: Oh? How so?
:andyds:: Whatever they throw at us, we're around to stop them! They'll never take over this land!
Vince: Confident today, are we?... Alright. I agree. We can't let them do as they please.
OS Soldier:: Commander Andy! Black Hole is in this region. We can intercept them if we need to.
:andyds:: Let's go!
Vince: Alright, alright.

=========================================

:andyds:: Hey! It's that weird CO who likes worms!
:flakds:: Huh? Your THAT worm! The worm who ruined Black Hole a year ago here in Macro Land!
:andyds:: I thought Black Hole given up on attacking countries ever since Omega Land! Why are you guys doing this?
:flakds:: Black Hole never gives up, Worm! I'm mostly in it for the revenge, upon you!
Vince: Your Black Hole CO Flak, aren't you? The one who attacked Orange Star a year ago.
:flakds:: Huh? Another worm?
Vince: I'm not a worm, I'm Vincent of Yellow Comet.
:flakds:: ...Ah ha! The new CO! I'd like to see how you'll do--
Vince: Unfortunately, I'm on Intel Duty today. Your facing Andy.
:flakds:: This'll be like old times! Where I-
:andyds:: Lose to us?
:flakds:: Yeah, exactly! Wait... You worm! That's it! I'm going to win today!
Vince: ...and thus we have to face someone who's intelligence is the size of a peanut. Interesting.

:andyds: (Orange Star) VS :flakds: (Black Hole)
Fog of War is off.
Objective: Destroy all enemy units or capture their Headquarters. You lose if your Piperunner gets destroyed.
AI: Strike
Andy cannot build Units that cost over 10000G in BASES. All units that can be produced from the Airport are allowed. The enemy is allowed to build any units.
Image
---Playable Map, Yay!---

Same settings. If you DO play this map, please obey the the 10000G or lower rule. I know, because I was tempted to build Rockets/MD Tanks. Don't build them, if you want to have fun.
TVK's Personal Record - Mission 2 - 18 Days

Orange Star - Day 1

:andyds:: These are bases, right?
Vince: Yeah, they are. We can start deploying more units now. However, I don't think we have the materials to build anything big yet, so we're restricted to what we can build. But in Airports and Ports, all air and naval units are available.
:andyds:: I can't help but notice that Black Hole has pipes in this area. How do they even do that?
Vince: Yeah, it's quite weird... Huh? What's that? Sitting on the pipe.
:andyds:: Oh, that's a Piperunner.
Vince: A Piperunner?
:andyds:: An Indirect-Combat unit that moves by riding on top of Pipes. Deployed from bases.
Vince: I have to say, the concept is interesting. But it's the only one we have right now, isn't it? We can't develop them in our bases.
:andyds:: I guess we'll have to protect it then, right?
Vince: Excellent. I did plan to research them eventually, but I'll take that chance after this battle.
:andyds:: Let's go then!

Black Hole - Day 1

:flakds:: Prepare to be squashed, Worms!

CO Power Quotes:
:andyds:: I won't lose, Flak!
:flakds:: Flak SMASH!!! I'm gonna beat the stuffing out of you!

Tactics:
Vince: Welcome to another session of Vincent's Tactics. I'm Vincent.
:andyds:: Hi! I'm Daisy! Andy!
Vince: It's that time of the day.
:andyds:: Alright!
Vince: You start with one Piperunner. They start with two. Seems like a disadvantage? Not really. The two piperunners will blow up that seam in the beginning, so you only have to deal with one of them.
:andyds:: Why would they do that?
Vince: I'm don't know. Because Flak is stupid? Anyway...
Vince: Now, you can't do much about the enemy capturing the airport in the middle, but your Piperunner can either....moved over the seams to be utilized efficiently, or shooting the air units that come out of the airport.
Vince: Since you can't build any big units, you'll have to use your Piperunner and other Indirect Units to deal with Flak's big units. Oh, and you can build any Air Units. So capturing that Airport would be a big plus.
Vince: Any questions... *cough* cause I'm out of breath now... talking too long...
:andyds:: Nope!
Vince: Off to the battlefield, then... *cough*

Defeat:

:flakds:: How's that?! Eat that Worms!
:andyds:: Darn...

Victory:

:flakds:: ...
:andyds:: Now get lost!
:flakds:: I'll remember this, worms! *leaves*
Vince: Now then, I'm going to look up information on this Piperunner unit.
:andyds:: Where do we have to go next?
Vince: The northern parts of Orange Star. The desert area. Not much to see, but--
:andyds:: Alright, let's go! *runs off*
Vince: ...and off he goes. I was going to tell him that we're meeting up with Sami up there. But I guess he can find that out when we get there.

Mission 3 - The New Weapon

Briefing
Orange Star - Macro Land

Vince: Andy, I've received reports of Black Hole developing something big in the mountain range west of here.
:andyds:: Something big?
Vince: Yeah. They've also gathered up a big force to the east of here. So, could you take out the Black Hole force to the west? I'll handle the one in the east with a small force of soldiers.
:andyds:: Where should we meet afterwards?
Vince: Take this map, I'll meet you in the desert around the northern parts of Orange Star.
:andyds:: Can you stop them on your own?
Vince: I'd actually ask you the same thing. No matter what, I'm going to meet you at that point in the desert. Promise me that you won't lose, Andy.
:andyds:: That's a promise! I'll see you there!
Vince: I'll see you later, then.

Orange Star - Western Mountain Ranges

:andyds:: The enemy doesn't seem to be in the are--
OSSoldier: Commander Andy! Commander Vincent was right! Black Hole is testing out a new weapon they've developed here!
:andyds:: Alright, let's stop them--
:flakds:: It's you again, Worm!
:andyds:: Oh. It's just Flak.
:flakds:: Don't 'It's just Flak' me! That's it! I'm DEFINITELY going to smash you today, Worm!
:andyds:: ...and you'll lose, just like every other time!
:flakds:: ...Just wait until you see the power of this new weapon, Worm!

:andy: (Orange Star) [player] VS :flak: (Black Hole) [COM]
Objective: Destroy the Black Mortar!
Fog of War is OFF.
AI is set to Assault.
The Black Mortar is set to fire a Mortar that damages units in a diamond similar to a silo once every 3 turns starting from Day 2.
From Day 20, The Black Mortar fires a Mortar every day until Day 25, where it stops functioning. The Black Mortar still needs to be destroyed after that.

Image
---Playable Map, Yay!---
Read the comments after the mission dialogue to find out how to play this mission.

Orange Star - Day 1
:andyds:: Any ideas on what that giant cannon does?
OSSoldier: Most likely blow our units up or something sir. It's aimed into the sky.
:andyds:: I guess so. They don't have much units or resources deployed at the moment, though.

Black Hole - Day 1
BHSoldier: Sir, the Black Mortar is currently charging.
:flakds:: When will it be ready, Worm?
BHSoldier: It should be ready to fire tommorow.
:flakds:: Excellent, worm!

Black Hole - Day 2
:flakds:: Black Mortal, Fire!
The Black Mortar fires a Mortar.
:flakds:: Hahahah! See the look on their faces! Let's crush em, Worms!
BHSoldier: Yes sir! ...sir, it's a Black Mortar.

Orange Star - Day 3
:andyds:: Woah, What the heck was that?
OSSoldier: It must've been that cannon, sir!
:andyds:: Do we have any intel on it?
OSSoldier: Intel reports that it fires a Mortar once every 3 days! We have to cut it's source of power!
:andyds:: If it's the same as a Black Cannon, we should target it's weak point!
Cursor at the Door of the Black Mortar.
:andyds:: We need to take out that door! Come on, men!

Black Hole - Day 20
:flakds:: Worms! Why aren't we winning? We should have them on the run with the Black Mortal!
BHSoldier: Sir!It's a Black MortarThey're fighting back as much as they can! What should we do?
:flakds:: Make the Black Mortal fire a Mortal every day! Starting from today!
:blackhole: But... but sir... that will overload the--
:flakds:: DO IT NOW, WORMS! I DON'T WANT BUTS! I WANT RESULTS! I WANNA SEE MORTALS EVERY DAY!
BHSoldier: Yes, sir! Wait a minute, did you just say fire a Mortal every day?

Orange Star - Day 23
:andyds:: That Black Mortar thing has gone Crazy! It's fired three days in a row now!
OSSoldier: It looks like it's going to overload in a few days, actually.
:andyds:: Okay! Let's hold out!

Black Hole - Day 25
:flakds:: ...Fire!
The last mortar is fired.
*Explosion*
:flakds:: What?!? Report, worms!
BHSoldier: Sir! It's like I predicted! We can't fire anymore!
:flakds:: GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! WHY!?!
BHSoldier: We can't sir! The Black Mortar's system overloaded! It's now unable to fire at this stage! What should we do now, sir?
:flakds:: ....Crush them! Quickly, while they're weak from all the mortals!
BHSoldier: Yes, sir! THEY'RE MORTARS, SIR.

Orange Star - Day 26
OSSoldier: Commander, the enemy weapon seems to be disfunctioning. It looks like it won't be able to fire anymore mortars.
:andyds:: Woo Hoo! Here's our chance! Come on, men!

CO Power Quotes:
:andyds:: Your mortars are nothing when I do this!
:flakds:: Why fight when you can use Mortals!? ...and SMASH!

Tactics:
:andyds:: Welcome to another session of Vincent's Tact-- Oh. Vince isn't here. Ahem..
:andyds:: Welcome to a session of Andy's Tactics! I'm Andy!
:flakds:: ...and I'm Flak! Guest appearance by yours truly!
:andyds:: ...Who let you in here?
:flakds:: Neutral ground, worm. Anyone can come in and out anytime they want.
:andyds:: ...okay. Want to help me with some tactics today?
:flakds:: Despite being your enemy, alright, Worm!
:flakds:: [color="#FF0000"]For the time being, you should capture as many properties as you can, worm! You'll be shelled by Mortals for a while every 3 days. This shouldn't be a problem, because on some days, you can heal it off with your CO Power![/color]
:flakds:: [color="#FF0000"]When the Mortars stop firing, you should take your chances! Use your big tanks to blow up the Black Mortar!
:flakds:: Also, It would be a nice idea to capture those two bases below you! You can attack using two fronts at once![/color]
:flakds:: Any questions, Worm?
:andyds:: Excellent tactics, I didn't think you'd be that smart, Flak! *leaves*
:flakds:: Thank you, thank-- ...Wait... he was insulting me!!! [color="#FF0000"]That WORM[/color]!!!

Defeat:

:flakds:: Now it's your turn to get mortaled!
:andyds:: I'm... sorry, Vince. I failed...
*Explosion*
Restart Mission 3.

Victory:

:flakds:: Are you... serious...? Even with the... Black Mortal? Retreat! Argh! I'll get you next time, Worm!
BHSoldier: Sir, wait for us! IT'S A BLACK MORTAR, SIR!
:andyds:: Woo hoo! We won!
OSSoldier: But all our troubles aren't over, yet.
:andyds:: That's right! We need to meet Vince at that spot! Let's go!
OSSoldier: He's always cheerful, isn't he? But he's a good commander at the same time. I'm glad that we're on the same team.
========================================================
Black Mortar

Image
Sprite Design by TVK, With assistance from Snifit

A new Black Hole weapon. It's structure is similar to the Black Cannon, where it's weak spot is exactly the same.
It fires a Mortar dealing the same damage as a silo and the same range as a silo every couple of days (can change).
========================================================

Finally! This took a while, but it's here.
Playtesting wise, here is the map you have to copy exact detail onto your AW:DS Cart, if your interested.
Image
Same settings as the actual Mission. Except you can't play as Black Hole. Replace them with any other army.
The 3x3 pipes are to resemble the Black Mortar, where you blow the door up (or we can call it the pipe seam).
The Mech to the side of the map along with the Pipe Formation allows the Black Mortar (the bunch of pipes) to function properly. It works exactly how it does in the Campaign, firing off a Sil-- Mortar every 3 days until Day 20, where it fires off a Mortar EVERY Day (the 5 silos in a row) until Day 25, where it just stops.

I've made it near impossible to win by Rout or HQ Capture (Unless you put a rocket in that right spot and shoot the enemy mech, because I did overlook this, please don't shoot the Mech) so you have to win by blowing that seam. Good luck.

TVK's Personal Record - 35 days

TVK's Secret Notes:
Actually it's a Piperunner cannon stuck on the Black Cannon. Don't actually think I have good skills when it comes to Sprites. I don't.

I read the campaign already on AWN - I'm just too lazy to make an account there.

And 'bout the Flak smiley, we have two sorts of smileys of the old characters. The orginal AW ones you're using, and the AWDS ones.

:andyds: (:andyds:)
:samids: (:samids:) Introduced in AW1 and therefore have the DS tags because there are two smileys of them.

I'm trying to transfer the whole campaign here, but it would be a bit of a hassle you know.

I'd have to replace the names etc and I'm not sure if it will be worth it, since I'm not sure if I will have readers to the campaign.

Yeah, this parts of the forums get less visitors (I think). I know I stopped posting stuff from my campaign because I thought nobody even read it. I'll take a look at your campaign and comment on it later. But I will comment on it even if it's just one word. ;)

So far, I have to say: good job, the dialogues made me laugh at some point and I think, you should go on working on your Campaign. For your CCOs: they seem to be OK but you should shorten the Power bar of Vincent a little. I don't exactly know how to price FoW in a Power, but I think 3 Stars are enough for it, since he's bland outside FoW, and In Fow you wuldn't use his COP. For his super: FoW for 2 days can hurt the enemy quite hard and you have a superior stat advantage so the 8 stars seem to be fair. Kate is quite interesting, Her troops are only strong when she Heals Units that were hurt, since there are always some cities/bases near the frontline you can have a couple of units having this nice boost, and her power is interesting: while +1HP seems weak, all of her units that were damaged will get the boost. Additionally, +1 MP helps her to get first strikes. The same goes for her super but with even more healing and more boost. If the D2D didn't have that great synergy with her Powers, I'd priced it much lower but I think you'll do ok with a 4/7 meter(especially if you use one of her Powers after a Mass-damage Power (OUCH!!!)). For Wallace: His D2D and his COP are very Map-dependent (the same way as Lash is), but different from Lash you'll use the good terrain against your enemy. The COP is (as I said) very Map dependent. You can have a wide open Map with many Plains on it, and you'll end up having a ~30%(10/10 defaults included) boost during your Power, or the map is sticked with Forests and Mountains and you'll get a ~40-60% (defaults included) boost on this Power. The super is less situational, because you create the best Situation with this Power. Basically you end up having a 68% Power boost (140Atk vs 80 def = 168% damage)(defaults included). It's a nice boost, (It's not as strong as Max' or Jess' SCOP but these COs only boost the units they like, while Wallace pushes all (btw: are air units included with the terrain modifies during the Super?)) At least he seems to be OK. If you need some Help with your Campaign, you can PM me anytime you want. (Wow, I didn't want to write such a long comment)

Thanks for your opinions.

FoW for the enemy only, meaning Vincent doesn't get fog, but the enemy does. I thought that was a little overpowered though.

I should start posting some more missions soon, especially since all I have to do is copy and paste.

Mission 4 - Shrouded Mysteries

Orange Star (Macro Land) - Eastern Lake
Vince: Is it really okay for me to use these Orange Star troops?
OSSoldier: I'm sure it is, sir. You do have the authorization to do so, even if your a Yellow Comet CO.
Vince: If you say so. It'll be the same as using Yellow Comet troops, I'm sure.
OSSoldier: Oh, by the way... I've got some good news and... bad news. What do you want to hear first?
Vince: The good news.
OSSoldier: Commander Andy has successfully defeated Black Hole at the Western Mountain Ranges!
Vince: Is that so? That's excellent news.
OSSoldier: As for the bad news... Orange Star is losing all of its water! It's being drained at an incredibly fast rate!
Vince: What?! I bet Black Hole would be the cause of such a crazy idea... Anyhow, What's Commander Sami currently doing?
OSSoldier: She's currently investigating the area where you planned to meet up with her, sir.
Vince: Alright then. Let's investigate this lake.
OSSoldier: Yes sir!
Vince: Water, huh... what could Black Hole's purpose be in draining all the water...?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Vince: This isn't a lake! It's a swamp! It must have been...
OSSoldier: Sir! Black Hole troops are here! The drainage of water must have made the lake turn out to be a swamp!
Vince: I knew it... Order all troops to engage in combat, immediately!
OSSoldier: Right away, sir!

Vince (Orange Star) [Player] VS :hawkeds: (Black Hole) [COM]
Objective: Capture the enemy HQ or destroy all units!
Weather: Rain
Fog Of War is on. (Due to the Rain)
AI is set to Assault.

---Playable Map---

Same settings as actual Mission. Except play as Sonja instead of Vince with two towers OUTSIDE of the map. This represents Vince's D2D in fog. Good luck.

Orange Star - Day 1
Vince: Fog is still fog, even in rain. Being a master of fog, I don't plan to lose here.

Black Hole - Day 1
BHSoldier: Sir! Orange Star troops are attacking us!
:hawkeds:: ...I see. Who is the enemy CO?
BHSoldier: I believe it is the new CO from Yellow Comet, sir.
:hawkeds:: Yellow Comet... huh? I believe this is a good chance to test his skills. Attack the enemy right away.
BHSoldier: Yes sir!

CO Power Quotes:
Vince: Loss isn't acceptable here. I'll show you that!
:hawkeds:: To be backed into a corner is simply not the end of the fight.

Tactics:
Vince: It's time for yet another grand session of Vincent's Tactics! I'm Vincent!
:hawkeds:: ...Hawke.
Vince: Your the kind of person who doesn't really say much, aren't you?
:hawkeds:: Yeah.
Vince: Okay. Let's get to business!
Vince: It's sort of a stalemate at the beginning, actually. My actions depends on what I want to do, whether I should hold my position and defend, or push straight in. When I get hit by Black Storm, I should probably be on cities, prepared, so I can heal off the damage straight away.
:hawkeds:: Check woods and reefs.
Vince: There's a weirdly positioned Piperunner on top of a base. If I do decide to take it out, I should probably sit a unit on top of it so reinforcements don't come out. I should probably use the woods to my advantage, as well.
:hawkeds:: ...not bad.
Vince: Come on, you've got to say a lot more after all this discussion... well I guess it wasn't really a discussion.
:hawkeds:: ...well done. *leaves*
Vince: Is that guy an oddball or what? I think he only said Ten words total.

Defeat:
Vince: Tch. I'm sorry, Andy. I won't see you later.
:hawkeds:: ...
Restart Mission 4.

Victory:
:hawkeds:: So, your not too bad... maybe you have a chance to defeat Black Hole...
Vince: You... your Hawke! So you survived the collapse of the Grand Bolt in Omega Land?!
:hawkeds:: That is correct.
Vince: What are you doing here? Are you the cause of the water draining in Orange Star?!
:hawkeds:: Calm down. I'm here on my own accord to investigate.
Vince: Investigate? Don't make up such a stupid lie--
:hawkeds:: There are just some matters that need to be looked into... in order to be cleared up. *leaves*
Vince: Hawke, huh... Your a really hard CO to figure out, you know.
OSSoldier: Shall we go meet Andy, sir?
Vince: Yes, let's go.
=====================================================
I wanted to make a pre-deployed mission, and here it is.
It's not too hard. Not too easy either.

Mission 5 - System Draining - Part 1

Orange Star (Macro Land) - Northern Desert
:samids:: This is quite the problem..
OSSoldier: What appears to be the problem, Commander?
:samids:: Black Hole draining all the water in Orange Star. It doesn't make sense. Why would they do something like that?
OSSoldier: I'm not sure myself...
:samids:: Oh. How's Andy and Vincent doing?
OSSoldier: They should be here soon, as from our last report.
:samids:: Great! Wait... something doesn't feel right here..
OSSoldier: ...huh? What's the matter?
:samids:: I'm going to head over there to check something out.. Stay here and wait for Andy, okay?
OSSoldier: Yes Ma'am!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

:samids:: I knew it! Black Hole is in this area! I guess it's up to me to stop them since no one else is here..
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... so it begins. I didn't think you'd find us here.
:samids:: Adder! What do you gain from draining all the water? Is there a purpose for this?
:adderds:: That's for you to find out... But I won't let you anyway.
:samids:: How do you intend to stop us?
:adderds:: This bridge will be blown up in approximately 25 days, along with our plans...
:samids:: Oh. Thanks for telling us. Listen up soldiers! We need to get a unit to that bridge in 25 days!
:adderds:: Oh cra--! I guess it doesn't matter. Attack, quickly!

:samids: (Orange Star) [Player] VS :adderds: (Black Hole) [COM]
Objective: Get any unit to the bridge tile in the bottom left corner in 25 days.
Fog of War: Off
Enemy AI: Assault

Orange Star - Day 1
:samids:: We can't afford to waste time! We have to move quickly!

Black Hole - Day 1
:adderds:: Heh heh he-- ...What? Why is there a Rocket unit trapped in those mountains?
BHSoldier I don't know, sir. It somehow ended up there!
:adderds:: Hsssss! It can't JUST end up there! It's like trapping a battleship a landlocked lake!
BHSoldier What can we do about it, sir?
:adderds:: Just forget about it! Prevent them from reaching this bridge!
BHSoldier Yes sir!

CO Power Quotes:
:samids:: Anything resourceful should be captured. It's beneficial!
:adderds:: Quickly! Fend them off! Now!

Tactics:
Opening the door to the War Room.
The walls in the War Room are black.
:samids:: I feel this... weird aura going on in here.
Adder sipping a cup of tea.
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... nothing but a nice change of scenery... to discuss tactics.
:samids:: ...I think I'll go back to HQ to plan my tactics instead.
Sami leaves.
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... leave the discussion to me.
:adderds:: Capturing as many bases as you can is the fruit to success here...
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... don't forget to built Anti-Air to fend off air units. Such is the idea of my face.
:adderds:: Use units that move fast to reach the bridge. Like tanks and APCs...
BHSoldier You've officially creeped us all out, sir.
:adderds:: Hssssssss! You were here this whole time!?
BHSoldier Ummm... I'm sorry sir!

Defeat:
:adderds:: I believe you know too much. Goodbye!

Mission 5 - System Draining - Part 2

Orange Star - Macro Land - Northern Desert

:adderds:: I didn't think you'd get here so fast. As expected from one of Orange Star's top commanders.
:samids:: So, this is what your using to drain the water from our land?!
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... Yes it is.
:samids:: But it looks like any other regular fortress Black Hole builds.
:adderds:: ...just forget about the looks! It's not important!
:samids:: Sigh.
OSSoldier: Commander! Vince and Andy are arriving now.
:andyds:: Hey, Sami! How's it going?
:samids:: I'm fine, Andy, as you can see.
Vince: Hey there.
:samids:: So, your the new Yellow Comet CO I've been hearing about... apprarantly quite skilled in your work, or so I've heard.
Vince: Am I becoming well known already? Heh, alright. Let's focus on the more important topic.
:adderds:: I see that Flak has failed utterly yet again... I really should stop depending on him.
Vince: Black Hole CO Adder. You attacked Yellow Comet a year ago. The horrible things you've done to my country...
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... you must have heard great things about me. Any news about my face?
Vince: The only part of the news related to you that I liked was your downfall, actually.
:adderds:: ...Attack them at once.
BHSoldier: ...Really, sir? Is it because you didn't hear anything about your face?
:adderds:: Just attack.
:samids:: Alright! We've got to shut down this facility!

:samids: (Orange Star) [Player] + :andyds: (Yellow Comet) [Player] VS :adderds: (Black Hole) [COM]
Turn Order: :samids: [Orange Star] -> :adderds: [Black Hole] -> :andyds: [Yellow Comet]
Objective: Capture the 8 surrounding buildings to the Black Hole Fortress in 25 days!
Fog of War: Off
Enemy AI: Assault

Image
---Playable Map---
Well. The settings are the same and the map is the same. Except, replace the Black Hole Fortress with 4x4 Pipes, instead. Outside the map, you should have each army HQ. Make sure that Adder goes after Sami. Have Adder have an Oozium (or any other unit) outside the map so that when you rout Adder on the map, he doesn't lose (so that the only way to win is my objective). If you can't tell what buildings are under the Black Hole rockets, they're just Black Hole cities. Have a nice day.
TVK's Personal Record -> 23 Days

Orange Star - Day 1
:samids:: So, any ideas on how to take out that fortress?
:andyds:: Nope! No ideas at all!
Vince: At least your honest. I'm going to try and get some intel on that thing.
:andyds:: Vince, why aren't you commanding these troops? Aren't they from Yellow Comet?
Vince: I believe that your more suited for this mission, Andy.
:andyds:: Really?
Vince: Yeah. Anyhow, I'm leaving. Gotta gather info. *leaves*
:samids:: For now, let's attack together, Andy.

Black Hole - Day 1
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... they won't stop us here. Well... they better NOT stop us here.

Yellow Comet - Day 1
:andyds:: Let's bring it to them!

Orange Star - Day 3
Vince: Alright. I'm back.
:samids:: So, any vital information?
Vince: The fortress is powered by the surrounding buildings attached to it. That's how the fortress is draining all the water.
:andyds:: So we should just shut that place down!
Vince: We just need to capture those buildings.
:samids:: Leave that to me! I AM the capturing specialist after all!

CO Power Quotes:
:samids:: Let's capture as many things as we can!
:andyds:: I'm sure I can help out here!
:adderds:: Hsssssssss! I won't let you near this fortress! Go away!

Tactics:
:adderds:: Welcome... to yet another... episode of...
A sign appears on the screen, showing:
--Adder's Tactics--
Sudden Ripping Sounds
Vince, Andy and Sami are ripping off the Black Wallpaper in the War Room.
:adderds:: Hsssssssss!! ...WHAT do you think your doing!?
:andyds:: I prefered the War Room when it looked like this. *rips off wallpaper*
Vince: I don't think it need a change in scenery. The War Room is fine as it was before.
:adderds:: WHAT!?! Who said you could just ruin MY scenery!?
:samids:: We all took a vote. We agreed to take it down.
:adderds:: I'd prefer it if you people would leave my scene alone.
Vince: ...and I'd prefer it if...
Vince kicks Adder out of the War Room.
Vince: ...you were outside the War Room.
:andyds:: Have a nice day!
Andy slams the door to the War Room.
:adderds:: I hate all of you. *leaves*

:samids:: Now that the War Room is back to normal, let's discuss some tactics, shall we?
Vince: Yes. It's now time for another session of...--
:samids:: We're running out of time, Vincent. There isn't time to introduce ourselves!
:andyds:: You can still handle the tactics, Vince.
Vince: ...But I... fiiine.
Vince: Although both the Orange and Yellow teams have a slow start, Orange Team seems to have a lot of funding in the east side.
Vince: It's up to you Sami, whether you want to share some cities with Andy, or use them all for yourself.
Vince: As long as Andy covers the bottom section, and Sami covers the top, Adder will have to continously break up his forces to get rid of both of you. Which he will have a lot of trouble doing so.
Vince: Also, try to capture that middle base, Sami. If you can't, build a Rocket Unit on the other side of the pipe to halt the enemy from capping it.
Vince: Watch yourselves... capping the surrounding buildings is the hard part.
Vince: ...and I believe that's all.
:samids:: Woah! Excellent deductions!
:andyds:: I'm still amazed from your tactical decisions, Vince.
Vince: Thank you, thank yo--
:samids:: Nope, we don't have time for thanking either. Let's cut the Tactics session here.
Vince: ... *sigh*

Defeat:
:adderds:: This... is... BLACK HOLE! I've always wanted to say that.
Gunshots.
Restart Mission 5 - Part 2

Victory:
:adderds:: Heh heh heh... you may have won, but this isn't the end. Mark my words.
BHSoldier: Wait for us, sir!
:andyds:: Woo hoo! We won!
Vince: Well...
:samids:: It's not the end yet, Andy. We still have a lot more to do.
OSSoldier: Sir! Commander Nell is patching through.
:samids:: Alright! Let's report.
:nellds:: Well done, Sami, Andy. I didn't expect any less from you guys.
:andyds:: Aw, thanks.
:nellds:: You too, Vince. I didn't think you would have done this much for us. Thanks a lot.
Vince: No problem. I'm here to help, after all. It's my job.
:nellds:: I've received reports that Black Hole is causing chaos in Blue Moon. I would like you three to head over there as a team and help out.
:andyds:: We'll get rid of anything Black Hole throws at us!
:samids:: That's the spirit!
Vince: I'm sure we can't lose. Let's go.
Proceed to Mission 6.

Mission 6 - Snow Warning

Macro Land - Blue Moon

:andyds:: Yay! Snow!
:samids:: Snow isn't always good... you know... It's quite cold...
:andyds:: Yeah, but it doesn't snow in Orange Star... so it's fun!
Vince: It's not like we're going to run into any problems here, right?
:samids:: Nell DID say that Black Hole was attacking Blue Moon, you know.
Vince: Oh, right... *sneeze*
:andyds:: You seem to have caught a cold, Vince!
Vince: This isn't a laughing matter... I hope I don't get real sick from this.
:samids:: We're near the Blue Moon base stationed ahead. Hopefully there's something to heat ourselves up with...
:andyds:: Let's go then!

Macro Land - Blue Moon - Blue Moon Base (or at least one of them)

BMSoldier: Sir! A small force has been identified and is heading towards us!
:olafds:: Is it Black Hole again?
BMSoldier: I'm not sure sir--
Kate: Reporting in, sir!
:olafds:: Ah, Kate, tell me. Besides Black Hole, who do you think that force is?
Kate: Umm... They look like Orange Star troops. I mean, that's THE famous CO Andy right there, isn't it?
:olafds:: Have you considered the fact that he could be a clone, Kate?
Kate: No... not really.
:olafds:: We just got attacked by Black Hole who were disguised as Orange Star troops.
Kate: Are you saying that...
:olafds:: ...Black Hole attacking again with a clone of Andy on their side. They're goal is to make us believe they are Orange Star, right?!
Kate: You could be right...
:olafds:: Look. They also have another person traveling with them who doesn't even LOOK like they are from Orange Star.
Kate: ...He looks kind of familiar... Hmmm...
:olafds:: I won't fall for that trick again! Immediately order troops on the offensive! I'll bury them with snow!
BMSoldier: Yes sir!
Kate: Alright then... (I think I'll do some intel gathering of my own...)
========================================================

:andyds:: We're nearly there! Woo--
:olafds:: ...Andy. What are you-- Oh wait... it doesn't matter. You clone!
:samids:: Wha?
:olafds:: I know what your up to, Black Hole! You can't deceive me twice!
Vince: No no no no. We're just here for shelter.
:olafds:: I shall provide no shelter to the clone of a person I don't even know!
:andyds:: Olaf, we're the real deal!
:samids:: Do we really look like clones to you, Olaf?
:olafds:: ...Yes, you do! You have the intent of invading my base and destroying it from the inside!
:andyds:: Olaf! Wake up!
:olafds:: I refuse to let you in this base, you hear me? I shall bury you in this snow if I have to!
Vince: ...and our words are useless. We have no choice then.
:samids:: Vince, what are you doing?
Vince: Readying our troops.
:andyds:: ...
:samids:: I guess we'll have to.
Vince: Let us begin, then... *sigh*

Kate comes in holding a pistol.
Kate: Put your hands up in the air!
:andyds:: ...
Vince: ...
Sami points her machine gun at Kate.
:samids:: Why don't you put YOUR hands up in the air?
Vince: (I swear to god that this IS A KIDS GAME. WHY ARE WE USING GUNS?)
Kate: I knew it.
Vince: Hm?
:andyds:: Knew what?
Kate: That you guys aren't clones... A clone wouldn't react at all, even if they were threatened by a gun.
Vince: You... your a Blue Moon CO?
Kate: Yes, that's right! I'm Kate, Olaf's assistant here in Macro Land. But I'm also a Commanding Officer in Blue Moon.
:samids:: So, why has Olaf started an attack against us?
Kate: Olaf believes that you guys are clones...
:andyds:: Clones?!
Vince: Why would he think that?
Kate: Black Hole attacked us a few days ago... disguised as Orange Star troops.
Vince: I see... Well, let's show him the power of 'clones'.
:andyds:: I agree!
:samids:: Hmmm...

Blue Moon - Day 1

:olafds:: Towers! Snow! What more could I possibly need? Taste defeat, you worthless clones!

Vince: Snow... not really my kind of thing, but let's try this.

Tactics:

Vince: Welcome, to a fine episode of Vincent's Tactics. I'm Vince.
:andyds:: Hi--
Kate: Hi! I'm today's guest, Kate.
:samids:: Well... what can I say? It's a good looking War Room now.
Everyone stares at the redesigned War Room.
It is now installed with a heater, air conditioner and a television.
Vince: ...It sure is.
Kate: Does this place really need a television?
:andyds:: TV!!!
Vince: Commanding Officers have to do something while not discussing tactics.
:samids:: Vincent, we can't drag off topic any longer--
Vince: Yes! Tactics. That's right.
Kate: Leave that to me!
Vince: ...Umm... what?
Kate: I'm quite knowledgeable about these kinds of things too, you know!
:andyds:: I reckon you should let her give it a try!
Vince: But how can you have Vince's Tactics... without me--
Kate: Without further ado...
Kate: This is quite a tough mission, huh? Olaf in Snow, while he has two towers. That's ALOT of firepower, right there!
Kate: You should have your units attack Olaf first as much as possible. You would go down in a firefight easily if he attacked you.
Kate: Capturing one of the two neutral bases is essential. Whichever you go for first, that's up to you. Also--
Vince: ...wait, wait, wait. Why does Olaf have all these indirects in mountains, does he think he's Grit now?
Kate: Also, avoid being in the range of indirects as much as possible. If you can't help it, then go for it.
Kate: What do you think?
Vince: I think... you did well. You shall be my assistant in Tactics, from now on!
Kate: Do I have to say 'Yes' to this?
:andyds:: Yay! More fun!
:samids:: ...and then our Tactics sessions will either get more fun into it, or be chaotic...
Vince: Those two agree with me, see?
Kate: ...I'll do my best, I guess...

Defeat:
Vince: Press the reset button, player...
:olafds:: You won't escape from me, clo--

Restart Mission 6.

Victory:
:olafds:: Oh no.. Blue Moon is doomed--
Kate: Hi, Olaf!
:olafds:: Kate, you betrayed me! How could you be working for Black Hole!?
Kate: No, Olaf. This is the Orange Star army! They're here to help us out. Oh, they want some shelter, too.
:andyds:: It's been a while, Olaf!
:olafds:: Oh. It's the real Andy. My mistake entirely.
Vince: Time for a break... *sigh*
:olafds:: Come in, so we can host an urgent meeting!
:samids:: A meeting? Good chance to discuss whats been going on...
Vince: Kate, you look familiar to me. I think I've known you from somewhere before...
Kate: ...I have the same feeling. I'll talk to you about it later, okay?
Vince: ...Hmmm... I wonder where I've seen her...

Intermission - Meeting Alpha

Macro Land - Blue Moon Base 01 - Lobby 01

:andyds:: Woo hoo! A meeting!
:samids:: Well, aren't you the kind of person who gets bored at these kinds of things?
:andyds:: It's not what happens in the meeting thats important! It's what happens afterwards!
:samids:: The party? Right...
Vince: I believe a meeting is necessary in order to gain information. Learning and giving information is vital to the success of war.
:samids:: Your actually serious this time, Vincent?
Vince: Sami, I'm always serious.
:samids:: (Not really...)
Vince: Oh, by the way. Did I tell you guys this before?
:andyds:: Tell us what?
Vince: That the Allied Nations is going to be reformed here in Macro Land.
:samids:: Oh.
Vince: Also, someone from Orange Star is supposed to be arriving any minute now..
:andyds:: Who?
Vince: ...and... here she is, right on time.
:rachel:: Hey Sami! It's good to see you again!
:samids:: Rachel! What are you doing here in Macro Land?
:rachel:: Orange Star needs a representative here, so I came along since my sis-- Commander Nell couldn't participate.
:andyds:: Nell has a sister?
:rachel:: She didn't tell you, Andy? Oh well. Guess it doesn't matter.
Vince: Ah, Rachel. You've been chosen as Orange Star's representative, I see.
:rachel:: Your Commander Vincent, right? The guy representing Yellow Comet?
:andyds:: Such a big task put on you, Vince!
Vince: Not really. I had to fill in since no one else could come around here. It was convenient enough for me to be here anyhow.
:samids:: So, any ideas on what's going to happen in the meeting?
:rachel:: Not really... probably discussion about whats going on in Macro Land..
Vince: It would be nice to hear about what Black Hole has done.
:andyds:: So we can take them down, right?
Vince: Exactly.
:bluemoon:: Commander Olaf has now asked for everyone to enter the meeting! Please proceed.
:rachel:: Alright guys! That's our cue.
Vince: Let's proceed. (I also still wish to know who that Kate girl is... Hmmm...)

Macro Land - Blue Moon Base 01 - Meeting Room

Sort of like a round table, where Rachel, Olaf, Eagle and Vince are sitting. Everyone else is standing around watching.
:olafds:: I, Olaf, welcome you all to this mandatory meeting. I especially thank our representatives, from each country, who have taken their time to attend. Introducing our representatives! Commander Rachel of Orange Star!
:rachel:: A pleasure to finally meet you in person, Olaf.
Kate: The leader of the Allied Nations in Omega Land? Nice to meet you.
:rachel:: Nice to meet you too erm...
Kate: I'm Kate.
:rachel:: Ah, okay.
:olafds:: Commander Eagle of Green Earth!
:eagleds:: Heh. I'm always here to help out. We'll take care of Black Hole in no time.
:samids:: I expect nothing less from you, Eagle.
:eagleds:: Why wouldn't I come over to help? It's a great opportunity to take out Black Hole.
:olafds:: ...and finally, Commander Vincent of Yellow Comet.
Vince: I'm nothing special.
:andyds:: Yes you are, Vince! Your a representative!
Vince: Not like it's really anything special, heh.
:olafds:: This is my assistant, Kate. She is going to speak about the current things that we should all probably know about. I know some of whats happening, but I believe we should all hear it.
Kate: Over the past few months, Black Hole has been attacking every single country in Macro Land: Orange Star, Blue Moon, Yellow Comet and Green Earth.
Kate: They've been doing it in quite an odd way, too.
:olafds:: Odd, you say?
:rachel:: What have they been doing these past months?
Kate: Black Hole has been draining water, attacking for no purpose and destroying cities in sight.
:eagleds:: Well? What are we standing around here doing nothing for? Let's go crush them.
Kate: I understand your ideals, but I believe it would be better for all of us if we all listened to this.
:olafds:: Actually, now that you mention it... it has been snowing oddly in Blue Moon. It doesn't usually snow THIS much.
Vince: That explains all that snow in the previous battle. I personally thought that was you causing that...

The door to the meeting room is suddenly opened.
:gritds:: I'm not late to the meeting, am I Frosty?
:olafds:: Of course you are, you lazy bum!
Kate: Ah, Grit. Nice to see you awake.
Vince: Grit, the Sniper CO...
:gritds:: Yeap.. That's me.
Kate: Anyway, take a seat, Grit.
:gritds:: My pleasure.
Kate: The other day, I receive reports of a Snow Machine, here in Blue Moon. Who knows where they got THAT sort of technology, but it's source of power is... water.
:samids:: So that's why...
Vince: Water!?! No wonder they were draining the water in Orange Star!
:andyds:: But it still has an odd purpose! Why would Black Hole want to make it Snow here?
Kate: I believe that's something for us to find out.
:eagleds:: Good. An excuse to take out Black Hole.
Kate: I'm sure you'd agree with me on this one, but unless we team up, we can't take Black Hole out.
Vince: So... your suggesting..
Kate: We should reform the Allied Nations, here in Macro Land.
:rachel:: That's a good idea, Kate!
:eagleds:: Not like it matters, though. We work together fine anyhow.
:olafds:: I'm sure we can get anything done! Let's get movi--
Kate: Hold on, Olaf. There is MORE than one Snow Machine out there. We'll need to split into two groups and take them out.
Vince: Two groups, eh?
:rachel:: Alright, I'll take Andy, Sami and Eagle with me.
:andyds:: Woo! I'm going to go snowboarding!
:eagleds:: No you won't! We're hunting Black Hole! Not wasting our time!
:andyds:: Awwww...
:samids:: Eagle, let's work together well!
:eagleds: Yes, let's.
:olafds:: ...and I'll take Kate and Grit along with me! You too, Vincent!
Vince: Do I have to?
:olafds:: Four-man teams are necessary, come along now.
Kate: Hmmm...
:gritds:: I guess this is a good chance to catch on some shut eye... *yawn*
:olafds:: This meeting is adjourned! Good luck to both teams on taking out the Snow Machines.
:rachel:: Alright!

Macro Land - Blue Moon Base 01 - Lobby 02

:gritds:: Well, Olaf's getting the paperwork done... We're heading out tomorrow.
Vince: I hope we work together well, guys.
Kate: Vincent, I'd like to talk with you personally...
:gritds:: Oh... I'll leave you two to get acquainted then... *yawn*
Vince: Is this about the 'knowing each other' thing?
Kate: Yeah... I had a person who was like a best friend to me... I can't remember who he was though...
Vince: Well, I'm from Yellow Comet, you're from Blue Moon. I don't see how we would know each other.
Kate: To be honest, I'm not sure if I was born here...
Vince: Is that so?
Kate: I woke up here in Blue Moon in the infirmary in this base... I don't know what happened to me or what I did beforehand... but I intend to use this opportunity as a CO to find out as much as possible.
Vince: I see... Well, you look like a childhood friend who lived in my hometown... before it blew up, at least.
Kate: Your hometown in Yellow Comet, right? Do you recall any features of this person?
Vince: Well... I recall her having long blue hair... a cute look... and her name was Kate as well.
Kate: Ah...
Vince: You really do look like her... It's a shame I won't see her again though...
Kate: Eh..?
A bit of Kate's memories flash in front of her.
Kate: Huh? I saw... something..
Vince: What? Did you remember something?
Kate: ...Vincent! Your... alive!
Vince: Me? Of course I am. I'm standing next to you.
Kate: No, silly. I'm Kate, from your town! Your childhood friend!
Vince: I thought I was the only guy who survived...
Kate: I now know why I've been feeling lonely these past years... because I actually come from Yellow Comet...
Vince: Do you remember how our town got destroyed? I forgot it completely... I.. didn't want to recall it.
Kate: I don't remember any specific details though...
Vince: I had the same feeling of being lonely... like everything was lost to me.
Kate: Now that I think about it though... there was a man who saved me... from the destruction of the town...
Vince: Really!? Who--
Kate: I have no idea, Vince. It's a shadow to me...
Vince: ...It's good to see you again, though.
Kate: I'm sure we'll work well together, as you said.
Vince and Kate hugging scene.
:gritds:: So you two DO know each other... I had a feeling you'd figure your past out, Kate.
Kate: Grit! You were listening to our conversation?
:gritds:: I can't help it, I was in the room right there. I could hear you both.
Kate: Did you know I was from Yellow Comet, Grit?
:gritds:: No, but I had a feeling you weren't from Blue Moon. You see, I found you one evening here in Blue Moon, but you didn't look like a Blue Moon citizen.
Kate: Ah, I see...
Vince: I'm glad that you found a bit of your past, Kate.
:olafds:: You three! We're ready to move now!
Kate: Yes, sir!
Vince: On my way.
:gritds:: *yawn* ...I think I'll sleep on the way.
:olafds:: (Black Hole... just you wait! Your not getting away with this!)

Mission 7 - Town Of Ruins

Macro Land - Blue Moon - Snow-Covered Plains

Vince: We've been walking for hours, Olaf. Where are we going?
:olafds:: What beautiful snow! I wish it snowed like this forever!
Vince: ...don't ignore me--
:gritds: Boss, the snow isn't natural. It's from a machine.
:olafds: Doesn't matter! It'd be still great to have snow in Blue Moon for--
Kate and Vince glare at Olaf in quite a weird look.
:olafds:: ...never mind. (Kids these days...)
Kate: But you do really have to admit... Snow does look pretty... the white flakes falling out of the sky.
Vince: Like Grit said before. This isn't natural snow, you know.
Kate: Yeah, but imagine if it was real! Snow is fun to play with, the ground looks so beautiful...
Vince: You really ARE a kid still, aren't you?
Kate: What's wrong with being a kid? Besides, your not much older than me, Vince.
Vince: ...and how would you know that?
Kate: A friend would know you better than you knowing yourself, you know~
Vince: ...Alright, how old am I?
Kate: About a couple of weeks older.
Vince: That's not an exact number.
Kate: It's still close enough, though!
Vince: You still have to wonder what Black Hole is trying to achieve from this non-natural snow--
Kate: Don't change the subject, Vince~

:gritds:: (Youth, I wish I could be as free as them. They come around being smart, nowadays.)
:olafds:: (Yes, Grit, I know. Kids ARE smart. Colin is smart. Kate is also smart. Smart enough to be my assistant!
:gritds:: (She's naturally smart, right? Is that why you picked her, boss?)
:olafds:: (Listen, Grit. I know a great assistant when I see one, and I know I made the right choice.)
:gritds:: (Right, whatever you say, Boss.)
Vince: I can't help but wonder what you two are whispering about over there.
:olafds:: Nothing, really. Don't worry about it.
:gritds:: Boss, is there anything ahead that we should know about?
:olafds:: There should be a town up ahead we can rest at before we move on.
Vince: Really? Finally. A place to rest.
Kate: Wait a second... on the radar, it doesn't display any sort of town up ahead at all..
Vince: What does the scouter say about his power level?
Kate: Oh my god, it's over 9000!!!
Vince: What, 9000!?!

:olafds:: Your radar seems to be broken, Assistant. There has to be a town up ahead!
:gritds:: That is, of course, unless Black Hole got to it first, Frosty.
:olafds:: ...That better NOT be the case, Grit.
Kate: But Olaf...
:olafds:: Just wait till we arrive, Kate! Bahahah! I can see it now.
=================================================

:olafds:: Wha.. what's this!?!?
Vince: ...
:gritds:: It seems like Black Hole did get here...
Vince: This... reminds me of my town... back home... WHO could have done this!?!
Kate: Ugh... I... don't feel well...
:olafds:: WHO DARES TO RUIN THIS TOWN!?!
:gritds:: Boss, calm down--
:olafds:: I demand you show yourselves, Black Hole!
Wallace: Muahahahah! Funny old man! Demand? Your in no place to demand.
:olafds:: Why did you attack this town? Answer me!
Vince: ...
Wallace: I suppose it was... to satisfy... my boredom.
Vince: BOREDOM!?! You...!
Kate: Calm down Vince! He wants you to get mad at him!
:olafds:: I SHALL NOT LAY BY WHILE YOU DESTROY TOWNS FOR SATISFACTION!
Wallace: Like I said before, old man. Your not in the place to demand. I'm the leader here.
:gritds:: ...I see. This isn't an ordinary commander...
Vince: ...I... can't believe... this...
Wallace: You. With the black hair and odd look. I recall someone like you, absolutely terrified, when I destroyed a town in Yellow Comet. I had my reputation going up around that time... Black Hole CO Wallace... famous... in killing... others.
Vince: ...a town... in Yellow Comet!?!
Kate: ...I won't believe this kind of person exists! We're going to take you down!
Wallace: Not like reputation matters...
:gritds:: ...Twisted psychopath...
Vince: War to satisfy? You don't know the half of it. It's destruction. It's terrible. Normal citizens.. don't deserve this treatment.
Wallace: Come on! You need some sort of satisfaction in life, do you not?! Everyone does. Agree with me!
Vince: I... agree with you... We do need some sort of satisfaction in our lives.
Kate: Vince!?
:olafds:: Are you crazy!?
Wallace: The little man agrees with me! Hahahaha! The world isn't as crazy as I thought it was!
Vince: ...But, to an extent. Only a crazy moron like yourself would think that destroying towns brings satisfaction!
Wallace: Why you... piece of...
Vince: What you are doing is insane! Killing innocents...
Wallace: ...is satisfying.
Vince: Wrong! Innocents are people who strive for peace! All of us aim to strive for the very same peace!
Wallace: Kid, I hope you didn't wake up on the wrong side of the bed or something, because I don't believe in your values such as peace. I believe in... blood...
Vince: Humph.
Wallace: Well then, Old Man, shall we start?
:olafds:: ...I'm going to defeat you... for the people of Blue Moon!

:olafds: (Blue Moon) [Player] VS Wallace (Black Hole) [COM]
Objective: Destroy all enemy units or capture the enemy HQ.
Weather: Snow

Technically, it's not playable. But if you do use the same settings, set the enemy CO to Kindle or something. Just stick with Kindle.
TVK's personal record - 38 days with Olaf


Blue Moon - Day 1
:olafds:: I'm NOT letting you get away with this, psycho!
:gritds:: Woah. Boss is a little heated up today.
Vince: As he should be.
Kate: Good luck, sir!
:olafds:: I don't need luck! Especially if I'm going to win!

Black Hole - Day 1
Wallace: Those fools... They don't know who they're dealing with... I suppose I'll have to show them!
:blackhole:: Yes sir!
Wallace: Don't come near me... I have a lust for blood, right now... so I wouldn't go near me... would you?
:blackhole:: Absolutely not, sir.

CO Power Quotes:
:olafds:: Eat natural snow, you fool!
Wallace: ...I see you are quite powerful. But, not as powerful as me!

Tactics:

:gritds:: *yawn*
Vince: ...That's quite a great attitude for Tactics. I wish I was like you.
:gritds:: It is great to be lazy, trust me, I know. However, you have potential for doing these sessions. I know, because I've seen them on tape. So don't waste your potential. Go ahead and go on with life.
Vince: Why, thank you.
The War Room door opens.
Kate: Hiii~ Sorry I'm late.
Vince: Excellent, my assistant. We may now start the--
Kate: Aren't I already Olaf's assistant? I didn't consider that before I said 'yes' to you.
Vince: ...You already said yes, therefore we must now discuss tactics.
:gritds:: What's wrong with helping out in tactics, Kate? It's great to do something in your spare time. Me? I sleep.
Kate: Nothing, it's just...
Vince: Helping me do my job. Tactics is a knowledge thing. You and I, Kate, as people who are knowledged, strive to create tactics. You know what I'm saying?
:gritds:: ...You know, you didn't have to say all that stuff about tactics. Tactics are tactics.
Kate: Alright then! Let's begin!
Vince: Ah, this is all about money! Claiming the most properties seems to be efficient, but...
Kate: No, it's nowhere near anything about money! Claiming the most ESSENTIAL properties... such as Towers, Bases and Airports are the key!
Vince: Don't forget about those Missile Silos. They're useful too.
Kate: Overpower your enemy using units that are cheap and effective to take out expensive units like Bombers and Neotanks!
Vince: ...I think that's it.
Kate: I think there should be a Blue Battleship in that tiny lake over there.
Vince: Kate, that has NOTHING what so ever to do with this map!
:gritds:: I still like the idea, though.
Vince: What's the point of a land-locked battleship in a tiny lake?
:gritds:: I like battleships.
Kate: See? If Grit likes it, no one should complain.
Vince: ...Oh. See you next time, for another tactics session.
Kate: Maybe it should be called Kate's tactics, since I do most of the work~
Vince: Nooooo~

Defeat:

Wallace: Bwahahahhha! I win. Game over.
Restart Mission 7.

Victory:

:olafds:: I... this town. It's one of Blue Moon's most historical towns.
:gritds:: ...Olaf...
Vince: Historical?
:olafds:: It was one of those isolated towns... where it would never snow, even if it snowed in other towns... never snowing...
Kate: ...Olaf? Do you need anything?
:olafds:: I'd like some time alone, if possible.
Kate: Sure thing, Olaf! Let's go, guys.
Vince: Come back to camp when your done, Olaf.
:gritds:: Don't be late, boss. I want to get moving... oh wait. I want to sleep.
:olafds:: Funny. It's snowing on this town now.. It's never done that before...
:olafds:: It's as if this town is trying to tell me something... Showing me... that anything is possible. Even taking down Black Hole... it's not ever impossible.
:olafds:: Black Hole! Your despicable actions... they deserve justice!
Proceed to Mission 8.
=================================================
This is NOT Toy Box v.2.0-- Oh... it is.
Well. That was an annoying mission. But none-the-less, now that I've finally gotten it out of the way, I can proceed to making more. Mission 8 should be the return of a certain CO we all know and love. Good day.

Mission 8 - Return of Jugger

Macro Land - Blue Moon - ??? (A place I haven't thought about, okay)

:rachel:: Guys, it isn't snowing here for some reason.
:andyds:: What's so bad about it not snowing?
:rachel:: It's not so bad when it isn't snowing... it's just that if there is a Snow Machine in this area, then shouldn't it be snowing?
:samids:: Perhaps the Snow Machine is malfunctioning... or something?
:andyds:: Maybe they blew it up by accident!
:eagleds:: Yes, Black Hole is certainly capable of blowing their own machines up, they can do anything, honestly.
:samids:: It seems suspicious, though...
:rachel:: Huh?
:samids:: Maybe the enemy wants us to believe that their isn't a Snow Machine here... to divert our attention somewhere else...
:eagleds:: Oh? That's a good point.
:rachel:: Either way, we're investigating this area, whether anyone likes it or not!
:andyds:: Yahoo! Investigating!
=================================================
:andyds:: It's Black Hole!
:rachel:: So, they were here after all...
:samids:: Whether we should attack or not is a good question.. I mean, it could be a diversion.
:eagleds:: I say we attack immediately.
:rachel:: Huh?
:eagleds:: They could be performing some sort of experiment here, without us knowing.
:andyds:: Like what?
:eagleds:: Making another Neotank or something? I don't know.
:samids:: ANOTHER Neotank? Don't be crazy, Eagle.
:eagleds:: What? I was just suggesting some sort of reasonable answer for Andy.
:andyds:: At least it makes sense!
:eagleds:: That's right, it makes sense, because Black Hole is--
:samids:: ...capable of anything, right, right...
:eagleds:: What? They are!
:rachel:: Alright guys, let's go for it!

[Select CO - Andy, Sami, Rachel, Eagle] (Orange Star) VS Jugger (Black Hole)
Objective: Destroy all units or capture the enemy HQ! Losing your Black Boats or Lander unit causes you to lose.
Weather: None
Fog Of War: Off
Enemy AI: Assault

TVK's Personal Record - 21 Days with Rachel (Rout)


CO Selected Dialogue
:andyds:: Woo hoo! I'm ready!
:samids:: I'll do my best!
:rachel:: Let's defeat Black Hole as fast as we can!
:eagleds:: Heh. This isn't even worth my time.

Day 1 - Orange Star

:rachel:: I might have forgotten to mention this, but these Black Boats and Lander are the only sea units available to us, so it'd be best if we kept them intact for the future.
:andyds:: So we have to protect these units, right?
:rachel:: That's right, Andy!
:samids:: That shouldn't be too hard, I hope.

Day 1 - Black Hole

:jugger:: ...Updating battle protocol...
BHSoldier: Commander! We're under attack! It's Orange Star!
:jugger:: Query: Are we inside Blue Moon territory?
BHSoldier: That's correct, sir.
:jugger:: ...Query: What is the meaning of Orange Star's presence in Blue Moon?
BHSoldier: I'm not sure, sir. What should we do?
:jugger:: Focus on new task, purge enemy from memory.
BHSoldier: ...Yes Sir!

Tactics:

:rachel:: A discussion of tactics?
:andyds:: Yeah! It's to improve discussions between commanders and help out.
:rachel:: Then... why is Jugger here? Isn't he our enemy?
:jugger:: Jugger's Mood - Left Out.
:eagleds:: Don't worry, it's just a friendly discussion of how to win a Mission and help out players--
:jugger:: Emergency Protocol Activated! Commander Eagle broke 4th Wall! Must Exterminate!!!
:eagleds:: ....What!? The fourth wall?!?
:jugger:: Jugger, now ready to roll. Tactics.
:jugger:: Jugger has massive Navy compared to enemy. Jugger's Mood: Happy.
:jugger:: Enemy should most likely capture as many key properties as possible.
:eagleds:: If you're me, you'd only go for airports. Airports are for real Commanders.
:jugger:: DO NOT INTERRUPT JUGGER'S TACTICS!
:eagleds:: Okay... I'm sorry...
:jugger:: ...Calculating best solution... Stealth Bombers...
:andyds:: That's it?
Jugger leaves.

Defeat:

:rachel:: No!
:jugger:: Jugger is finally victorious!
Blue Screen of Death

Victory:

:jugger:: ...Jugger retreat.
BHSoldier: Wait for us, sir!
:rachel:: That was Jugger, wasn't it?
:samids:: Yeah, it was!
:eagleds:: What is the Bolt Guard doing in Macro Land?
:rachel:: ...Hmm... this is getting more interesting than I thought...
:andyds:: That robot CO was cool!
:eagleds:: No, Andy, he wasn't.
:andyds:: So, what now?
:rachel:: It seems like Black Hole has hidden the location of the Snow Machine... but where...
:samids:: We may be able to find some indication later, so let's keep moving!
:eagleds:: I agree.
:andyds:: I wonder how Blue Moon is doing...

If you're reading this last post, you've just missed out on about 4-5 odd Missions.

Anyway, after all that replacing and copy and pasting, I've finally gotten up to the coolest (probably not) part of the campaign. The Comic!

So, I really like what you're doing, especially the war room parts are really funny. Some of the missions seem to be challenging (especially the one you're facing Olaf) I like that. If you're having some time you should work on new CCOs especially for :ge: and :os: . If you want to, I can help you with the balancing stuff. Btw: the Comic was really nice, too. Your drawings are not bad and I couldn't do better.

The only thing I need to do is repost all the current missions from Advance Wars Net. And then add the three missions from my game cart.

Then I'll think about adding more custom COs. :P

If anyone actually still cares, I'd be bothered to continue this campaign, especially since there are MORE missions on AWN, and that I've misplaced my AW:DS cart somewhere. Genius of me. I know.

I check AWN every once in a month or two for updates in fanfiction and stuff.

Btw, you should make people care about your story. They aren't going to care if you are doing one of these two things:
A: Posting a story with a horrible quality.
B: Posting infrequent updates.

Since the story fulfills its purposes as an ingame script (which this technically is), this story suffers only from the latter but that's enough for people to not care anymore either unless the quality and lenght of the chapters makes up for it (but in this case, the chapters are also long enough to warrant longer gaps, like 10+ pages in Microsoft Word).
It might be that people care if you start picking it up again, but at least, try to have one mission up every two weeks and not to wait longer than a month with any new mission, otherwise you end up in the same position as you are now.

I'll be filling up this thread with the remainder of the Missions I left at AWN, and then I'm going to make more when I find that stupid AW:DS cart.

Incoming 2-Part Update

Mission 9 - Tower Assault

Macro Land - Blue Moon

Vince: Alright, here's the catch. Both teams, Blue Moon and Orange Star don't have leads, correct?
:olafds:: That's… correct.
Vince: We've only been fighting against Black Hole to drive them out, right?
:olafds:: That's right.
Kate: Wouldn't it be easier to drive them out if we had information on the Snow Machines?
Vince: There lies the problem, Kate. We have absolutely no leads on the Snow Machines.
:olafds:: …yeah.
:gritds:: Do you have some sort of plan, kid?
Vince: That's right. The 'VinceRecon' and 'VinceAPC' (name is subject to change) are going to be used in the upcoming assault on Black Hole.
Kate: What's with the names?
Vince: …Don't worry about it for now.
:gritds:: Those are some terrible names--
Vince: I said, don't worry about it.
:olafds:: So, how will those… things help?
Vince: Me and Kate are going to be on the field. We will drive these units to specific buildings so we can hack into and analyse data. Note that we will need protection in order to do this, otherwise these plans are down the drain.
Kate: I don't know how to use your machine, Vince.
Vince: I'll teach you myself, later. I'm sure you'll get it straight away.
:olafds:: So, how are we going to approach the enemy?
Vince: …There are two Black Hole bases to attack. One where we must attack at Night to be in the most advantageous situation. The other, where we must attack with full strength now.
:olafds:: Sounds interesting..
:gritds:: It's only me and Boss commanding the field, right?
Vince: Correct. Now, it doesn't matter which base we attack, but we need to get the information required on the Snow Machines. That's our top priority.
Kate: Will this mission be a success, Vince?
Vince: I've made sure that it will be… hopefully..

[Choose your path.]

:olafds: (Blue Moon) [Player] VS :jugger: / :flakds: (Black Hole) [COM]
Objective: - Have either the Recon or APC wait on top of the BH Towers and Airport.
- Once done, have them wait on the two bridge spaces in the south. Both the units must be on a bridge tile each, to successfully win.
- Recons/APCs cannot be built.
- BH Towers or Airport cannot be captured.
- Automatic loss when Recon or APC is destroyed.
Weather: Snow

Exactly the same settings as the actual map. Please follow every objective.
TVK's Personal Record: 24 Days with Olaf

Day 1 - Blue Moon

Vince: Hm… The Recon is quite useful here, isn't it? Fog of War is around.
Kate: It's quite hard to see, actually… There could be anything out there.
:olafds:: Nothing can crush the might of Blue Moon, fog or no fog. Let's go!
Vince: Alright, I'm coming.
Kate: Don't forget, we're here to gather information, guys!

Day 1 - Black Hole

:jugger:: …Identifying enemy… Blue Moon army.
:flakds:: Hey! Who asked you to command this army? I'm in charge here!
:jugger:: You are a Black Hole CO? Jugger has not seen you before.
:flakds:: I'm Flak, the strongman of Black Hole!
:jugger:: Flak? Identifying…. registered as Flak of Black Hole…
:flakds:: Tin can, I'm commanding this army. Buzz off!
:jugger:: Jugger was specified to guard area, ordered by Kindle.
:flakds:: I was asked to guard here by Adder!…
:jugger:: Jugger has identified solution. Initiate Tag Battle program.
:flakds:: Me… and you? Tag? Bwaahahaha! Not a bad idea, tin can!
:jugger:: Enemy approaching at top speed. Intercept.
:flakds:: Oh, this'll be fun.

Day 2 - Blue Moon

Vince: Hm? The Black Hole army is commanded by two COs.
:olafds:: That's the Tag strategy implemented in Omega Land, last year.
Vince: Huh? What's that?
:olafds:: Kate, brief Vince, will you? I've got my hands full.
Kate: It's where two COs switch command depending on the situation, and they can unleash their powers on the same day at once. Quite devastating.
Vince: I…. see. It'll be interesting to notice.

When Recon/APC waits on One Tower/Airport

Vince: …Alright. Information has been processed. Now let's keep moving.
Kate: Okay!

Black Hole - Day After a Tower/Airport has a Recon/APC on it

:flakds:: Wait… What are they doing?
:jugger:: Information on Snow Machines leaked. Towers have been breached.
:flakds:: Ha. They can't capture the buildings. I installed a mechanism myself, so that they can't be captured. They can't possibly find a way to steal information-
:jugger:: Towers not captured. Hacked. Information has been breached from the inside.
:flakds:: What!? When did they get permission for that!?!
:jugger:: Commence operation. Target the hackers. Destroy.
:flakds:: They aren't going anywhere! Let's smash em!

When Recon/APC waits on the final Tower/Airport

Vince: We got all the info we need, now let's get out of here!
Kate: Sure thing!

Black Hole - Day After All Towers/Airport has been waited on

:jugger:: Red alert! Red alert! Information containing the Secret Lab and Snow Machines have been stolen!
:flakds:: What!?! That's it! Let's destroy those hacking…. things…. yeah….
:jugger:: Two lone units attempting to escape from area.
:flakds:: Then let's smash em! Quickly!

CO Power Quotes:

:olafds:: Is the mission to take the information, or crush the enemy? Either way, Blue Moon shall succeed!
:flakds:: Hah! We're not letting you get away that easily.
:jugger:: …Battle program… overload.
Tag Power
:flak:: Time to try this out!
:jugger:: Initiate backup plan….
CO Swap
:flakds:: Time to dish out the power!
:jugger:: Jugger… is ready to… roll.

Tactics:

Vince: Well, you need a hand, right?
:olafds:: Yes, I do...
Kate: Isn't that why we're here?
:olafds:: Well… I suppose.
Vince: Let us begin straight away, then.
Vince: [color="#FF0000"]It's good to rush in for the Towers, but sometimes slow is best.[/color]
Kate: [color="#FF0000"]The Middle base should be taken as soon as possible, I think.[/color]
Vince: [color="#FF0000"]…Maybe if you can, try and sneak the Recon and APC through the woods. Just a suggestion.[/color]
Kate: [color="#FF0000"]Watch out for their Tag Power, it can hurt if they use it right.[/color]
Vince: I think that's all you can draw from this.
Kate: A bit short, don't you think?
Vince: What else can I say?
:olafds:: I suppose we can get back to the battle, then.

Defeat:

:olafds:: …I… Blue Moon. I've failed you…
:flak:: Hah! I've always wanted to beat this guy up.
:jugger:: Solution.
Gunshot.
Restart Mission 9A.

Victory:

Vince: Olaf. Me and Kate have successfully got the information.
:olafds:: Wait, where are you guys going?!?
Kate: We have to escape, now, right? We'll see you later, Olaf.
Vince: Don't worry, Olaf. Your assistant is in my hands. I'll see to it that we come back in one piece.
:olafds:: …Alright… I'll meet you later, with Grit. I trust your word.
Vince: Heh. Let's get out of here, Kate.
Kate: Got it!

TVK's Personal Record: 25 Days with Grit

Day 1 - Blue Moon

Vince: I don't see a use for my Recon here at all. Oh well. The mission is to gain information.
:gritds:: Hey, you built the Recon, didn't you? You shouldn't really complain.
Vince: I had cheap materials to begin with anyway.
Kate: We have quite the huge army, huh?
:gritds:: Yeah, but look at the size of the enemy. Quite big, don't you think?
Vince: Heh. I know your abilities, you'll win this.
Kate: Your the legendary Sniper, Grit. Good luck!
:gritds:: Kids, let's get going.

Day 1 - Black Hole

:jugger:: …Identifying enemy… Blue Moon army.
:flakds:: Hey! Who asked you to command this army? I'm in charge here!
:jugger:: You are a Black Hole CO? Jugger has not seen you before.
:flakds:: I'm Flak, the strongman of Black Hole!
:jugger:: Flak? Identifying…. registered as Flak of Black Hole…
:flakds:: Tin can, I'm commanding this army. Buzz off!
:jugger:: Jugger was specified to guard area, ordered by Kindle.
:flakds:: I was asked to guard here by Adder!…
:jugger:: Jugger has identified solution. Initiate Tag Battle program.
:flakds:: Me… and you? Tag? Bwaahahaha! Not a bad idea, tin can!
:jugger:: Enemy approaching at top speed. Intercept.
:flak:: Oh, this'll be fun.

Day 2 - Blue Moon

Vince: Hm? The Black Hole army is commanded by two COs.
:gritds:: Oh. That's just the Tag Battle system developed last year. Was pretty neat.
Vince: Huh? What's that?
:gritds:: Could you brief the boy for me, Kate? I'm a bit busy.
Kate: It's where two COs switch command depending on the situation, and they can unleash their powers on the same day at once. Quite devastating.
Vince: I…. see. It'll be interesting to notice.

When Recon/APC waits on One Tower/Airport

Vince: …Alright. Information has been processed. Now let's keep moving.
Kate: Okay!

Black Hole - Day After a Tower/Airport has a Recon/APC on it

:flakds:: Wait… What are they doing?
:jugger:: Information on Snow Machines leaked. Towers have been breached.
:flakds:: Ha. They can't capture the buildings. I installed a mechanism myself, so that they can't be captured. They can't possibly find a way to steal information-
:jugger:: Towers not captured. Hacked. Information has been breached from the inside.
:flakds:: What!? When did they get permission for that!?!
:jugger:: Commence operation. Target the hackers. Destroy.
:flakds:: They aren't going anywhere! Let's smash em!

When Recon/APC waits on the final Tower/Airport

Vince: We got all the info we need, now let's get out of here!
Kate: Sure thing!

Black Hole - Day After All Towers/Airport has been waited on

:jugger:: Red alert! Red alert! Information containing the Secret Lab and Snow Machines have been stolen!
:flakds:: What!?! That's it! Let's destroy those hacking…. things…. yeah….
:jugger:: Two lone units attempting to escape from area.
:flakds:: Then let's smash em! Quickly!

CO Power Quotes:

:grit:: I don't know about any of this information stuff… but if it's important… then I'll go all out.
:flakds:: Hah! We're not letting you get away that easily.
:jugger:: …Battle program… overload.
Tag Power
:flakds:: Time to try this out!
:jugger:: Initiate backup plan….
CO Swap
:flakds:: Time to dish out the power!
:jugger:: Jugger… is ready to… roll.

Tactics:

Vince: I'm sure you don't need help for this mission, right Grit?
:gritds:: Well, it would be handy to have a few tips.
Kate: Tips? We can do that.
Vince: Quick Handy Tips? Let's go!
Vince: [color="#FF0000"]Hah. Big army against Bigger Army. Seems a bit harsh, huh?[/color]
Kate: [color="#FF0000"]Stand in a defensive position to begin with. Tanks defending your indirect units.[/color]
Vince: [color="#FF0000"]Those indirect units in the mountains can get annoying. It's best to take them out if you need to.[/color]
Kate: [color="#FF0000"]It's no real rush, take your time. It only counts if we make it there, right?[/color]
Vince: [color="#FF0000"]…When they activate their Tag Power, a well timed one can take out your army very quickly, so watch out for that.[/color]
Kate: [color="#FF0000"]Oh! A good idea is to build Piperunners from your middle base.[/color]
Vince: That'll be all.
:gritds:: Hm…. Good ideas put together there…
Kate: Until next time!

Defeat:

:gritds:: I'm sorry, Olaf.
:flakds:: Hah! We've finally got you, Sniper.
:jugger:: Open file. Solution.exe.
Gunshot.
Restart Mission 9A.

Victory:

Vince: Grit. Me and Kate have to get out of here as soon as possible. Enemies are behind us.
Kate: We have to escape, now, right? We'll see you later, Grit!
:gritds:: Heh. Don't die on me, kids.
Vince: Trust me, we won't.
Kate: Good luck, Grit!
:gritds:: I'm sure they'll do fine on their own, anyway.
