Estelle and Katydid's double kills replay in split-screen slow motion.

"TOOO EXTREME! YEAHH! UNBEELIEVABLE-"
electric guitar riff

A cartoon wasp wearing a powdered wig and riding a skateboard breaks through the screen.

"You rang? Bzzt."
"Hey Stingy™!"
"Hey buzzheads. Bzzt. In remembrance of the life of Hievel I am proud to announce the introduction of the Meaty™ Hurricane Triple Stack with Honee™. Bzzt."
electric guitar riff
"No way! Is it true that Hievel personally endorsed Honee™ before his death?"
"According to our lawyers this is almost certain to have been the case!* Bzzt."
"RADICAL!"
electric guitar riff

Stingy™ does a kick flip as the display freezes in mid-explosion.

"Press F to order now and receive triple loyalty points."

Items: Scrap Scraper


Sh'Bang was in the middle of installing the Scrap Scraper onto her Beta Rig when a critical Wrecking Crew update flashed across her Comms display. A death beacon had been lit across the Wreckers' maps, announcing the death of Hievel, Rook's Hiver-geneline representative.

How broken up is Sh'Bang over Hievel's death?: 1d10 3 - Miss! Sh'Bang is not grievously affected!

"Oh man," Sh'Bang cooed, her schadenfreude plain, "a Desolate Gunman just splattered Rook's bee-man, Hievel! That's so rough! Like, I know my brother knew him from back in Dark so I guess he was cool. But still, those Anti-Materiel Rifle rounds hurt like a bee-otch, don't they? How sad! I'll bet my brother Skipp is really worked up over this right now... Hey bro - I'm so sorry that your Wrecker-friend died! I wasn't anywhere near it when it happened so you can't blame me on that front! I'll bet he was a good Hiver-person, really!"

Sh'Bang considered the insincerity of the words she'd just spoken and tried to temper her apparent lack of empathy with a clichéd platitude to cap it off.

"Why - like - why do the good ones have to die so young?" Sh'Bang sighed, a concerned pout plastered on her face. She was thinking of Grejja again.

Seated safely inside the cozy cockpit of the Desolate Gunman, Sh'Bang flipped through the photo-feed her CSSC had auto-snapped on her Comms device, attempting to see if she could find any good angles with her or Grejja in them. She stumbled upon an image that might be worth a little extra Challenge luxe for her and her Exclusive Sponsor - Necrotech Post-Mortality Vitality Systems - so she dutifully sent it off.

Bonus: Sh'Bang uploads a photo she'd taken of the Strato Cradle, from when she and Grejja were still together. She sends it to H.R.R.S. for their Geographic National Outsourcing Challenge!



Action: Sh'Bang performs the Loadout action on her rig to attach her Scrap Scraper to the Desolate Gunman (BP: 4 -> 5/6)!
Sh'Bang sets an Ambush for the inbound Haunted Enforcer (and any other enemies) as a free action!

So, I went and set a name for the Desolate Gunman that's a little more short and sweet and to the point - I hope you like it! Now that I think about it, between your funds and mine, we can afford to get me something pretty shiny - so feel free to send me any of the following packages if and when you're feeling generous!

(+5)

Stev rested his head in his hands. He'd done what he could--which wasn't much, given the circumstances, but it had been something at least. A chance at freedom, even if Rook hadn't granted Hievel the capacity to understand what that even meant. He wasn't the first Hiver to die--there was a certain level of risk involved in living on Io, even with all the work Stev had put in to adapt the Hive. He wasn't even the first Hiver to die on Wrecking Crew--although come to think of it, Zinore had been another one of Rook's, hadn't he. But the dumb potato of a man had had his charm, and Stev regretted his loss.

But there were practical concerns that Stev had to consider as well as emotional ones. He'd seen Hievel's death on the screen, but he hadn't felt it. Not like last time. Whether by luck or by sheer weight of iterations, Rook had cracked the code. He wasn't going to be connected to the future Hivers they churned out. And that meant that they could grow their own hive faster than Io could keep up with--which meant that when that conflict inevitably came to a head, he was going to be in a very, very bad place indeed.

Unless he could get that code right back.

Taking down Final Rest for the moment to issue a new challenge

He Shall Only Know Summer - (+5 Luxe) Transmat Hievel's remains to Io. Do as you please with his personal effects.

The Good Stuff - Retrieve Stev's Secret Stash from the Flagged Location. Ingestion not recommended.

Very Important Package - Request a Bee Box from the Solar Hive (free of charge, Wrecker must pay drone costs) and deliver it to Von Rinj.

Felix's eyes went wide as he spotted an indistinct lump of material. After giving the blue human a slow blink of acknowledgment, he eagerly padded over and poked a paw into the stuff.

"FOREIGN MATTER DETECTED" Suit stated. "ACQUIRING SAMPLE"

Felix sat patiently as an array of servo arms scooped up the strange matter and deposited it within his storage. Finally, a couple of treats clattered into his food tray.

"GOOD KITTY" said Suit.

Katya's fist thudded against the percussive maintenance pad of her control console as Hievel's death beacon lit up. She'd obliterated that which killed him, but it hadn't been enough. For the first time this series, a zodiac slayer hadn't made it to Wreckhalla.

She threw herself into her work, patching up Swatter-2 with the repair fabrikit to the very best of her ability. When she was done, he heard the pleasant 'ding' of a correctly entered code.

"That's some pretty magnifique hacking there, Ted. Nice going."

Another death beacon, always inauspicious. Midge scowled at the REKT readout, that had been one of Katya's wards across one and a half episodes. She'd already killed the killer, so he refrained from adding a new challenge just yet.

Oh! I feel it. I feel the cosmos!


Dinosaur Gum


[Sponsor Luxe: 15 -> 0]

While he waited for his office's auto-coffee service to arrive, Dr. Skipp Wiley Sr. held his corporate-mandated moment of silence for the recently departed Wrecker, Hievel. Rook BioEngOrg wasn't exactly a business partner of Cosmiq's, but the two conglomerate biotech entities have had plenty of mutually-beneficial market dealings in the past due to their cooperative sponsorship in the Wrecking Crew games. It was only a matter of proper professional etiquette that Dr. Wiley would perform an official token gesture of respect for the competition's fallen Veteran Wrecker.

Dr. Wiley muted his Sponsor-tailored holofeed. The holoscreen was displaying nothing more than his daughter Sh'Bang lounging in her idling Beta rig's cockpit while humming off-tune and listlessly scrolling through some pictures she'd taken with her new Comms device. With none of those ambient sounds to distract him further, Dr. Wiley steepled his fingers, bowed his head, and closed his eyes for a moment of silence - for Hievel.

The blaring warble of an incoming Comms cut through the nothingness like an arc of lightning through molten butter. Dr. Wiley's eyes snapped open as he sat bolt upright in his omni-chair.

"What now?" He asked, rhetorically. In as few words as possible, Dr. Wiley instructed his Comms machinery to field the call so that only he could hear the caller's voice through his earpiece. "Ear-Comm, accept call."

"Junior! How are you?" The excitement in Dr. Wiley's voice was genuine. "Have you been watching the games? Sh'Bang's been doing-" The voice on the line cut him off, so he held his tongue.

Dr. Wiley replied at the next available opportunity. "Yes, and it's such a shame about that, really. Hievel was an old soul, he really was-" Dr. Wiley paused again, his mood visibly souring as he continued to listen to the person on the phone.

After he'd had enough, Dr. Wiley interjected. "Now don't you take that tone with me, young man! I was in the middle of a moment of silence for him, I'll have you know. Besides, it's not my fault your bumbling bee-friend got himself pasted by an Anti-Materiel Rifle at point blank range!"

He let the voice raise some inflammatory points before interrupting again in turn. "That's patently ridiculous and you know it. How could she be responsible, anyway? You're not there, Junior - remember? It's none of your business what goes on in Tomb, just so long as your sister lives."

Dr. Wiley's eyes narrowed at what he heard. "Now you take that back! You're just upset your friend got himself killed in the season you weren't returning. We all experience a loss like Hievel's differently..."

"What do you mean 'What can I do about it?' I can't reverse time, Junior, if that's what you're asking. I can only nudge things so far in the field, add incentives here and there. You know that."

Dr. Wiley listened closely to the voice on the line. As he did so, the Caffématic wordlessly pushed its way through the office door and rolled itself next to Dr. Wiley's desk, priming itself to serve some piping hot caffeinated beverages.

"Fine - I can try that." Dr. Wiley said, waving the auto-coffee over. "Maybe Necrotech or I.P.C. might be receptive to deploying more of their new Experimental tech. And?"

The voice on the line made another detailed request as the coffee-serving robot squirted out several pumps of coffee, creamer, and artificial sweetening agents into Dr. Wiley's mug. As Dr. Wiley listened, he switched from nodding his head along to shaking it in disbelief. He scratched at the back of his neck and gave an honest assessment.

"That one... might be a little more difficult, Junior. No promises."

Once Dr. Skipp Wiley Sr. had finished talking things over with his son, he submitted the official Wrecking Crew paperwork needed to clear out two of Cosmiq's less-popular Challenges. He needed to make room for a pair of new Challenges centered around catering to his son's special interests. When that was done, he made an alteration to the requirements for an already-existing challenge.

COSMIQ SURVIVAL CHALLENGES (1-10 of 10):
  • Sweet Sorrower - Make parting statements and leave the Comms range of another Wrecker, with no intention of meeting up with that Wrecker on Tomb again.
  • Luna See Luna Do - Spend 3 consecutive rounds in the company of a neutral or ??? lunar being without attacking or being attacked by it.
  • Shot Caller - Accurately predict the numerical result of your first roll in Encounter phase before it happens. [Repeatable]

  • Feeling Borrower - Make an emphatic product placement for Cosmiq Pharmaware's new line of D-Breaker themed eyeliners Gemineyes™ after suffering a D-Crisis or while removing a Warp token from yourself or another Wrecker.
  • Insubordnance - Visit either of the craters where Gun Emplacements once were located (10.01 or 16.07) and abscond with something you find there.

When the carnage finally died down, eStelle was much, much richer. But before she had a chance to celebrate, her wreckerterminal beeped angrily at her, letting her know that she had several death-threats and angry t-mails awaiting the time when she would get around to reading them. She gave a half-hearted shrug of 'woops' to the camera drone that was somehow still following her, packed her things and headed off towards what she hoped was some sort of vehicle, preferably a spaceship that could travel the between, if those even existed.

Snowball II

Bon waited for the mutagen to kick in. Huh, no effect. He let out a long burp and felt a lump lodge in his throat. Promising, maybe he could breathe fire now!

Bon absentmindedly scritched the Masked Biocover behind the "ears", staring back at the explosion from behind tinting goggles. He hoped that was the last of his pursuers but he wasn't willing to stick around and find out. Bon noticed the Arachnopede staring at him and reluctantly gave it a scritch too before bounding into the distance.

Cut loose before the god eaters show up.



Von Rinj- HP: 3/7 DR: 4 Move: 2 Luxe: 8
Cybers: The Full Robert: Subject gains 5 Max HP and Damage Reduction 2, but may be disabled as a rig.
Tokens: 2Air 2Warp 1Shock

The creature was perched atop Von Rinj, ovipositor twitching in frustration, when the blastwave hit. Von Rinj saw no shock, no reaction of any kind as it was swept off him and into the wall with a crunch audible even without his augments working. A storm of shrapnel washes over Von Rinj, pinging madly off plating and leaving a shallow cut just under his good eye. Energy crackles on some subsystem damaged by the blast.

His systems finish rebooting and he turns to survey the effects of the bombardment. The devastation penetrated the dimensional barrier. Interesting. A gift from on high, considering his previous circumstances. Tiny abominations are chewing their way free of the broken corpse against the wall. Disgusting. In a corner the last of the mutants is cowering. Von Rinj will deal with it in time. Now though he receives a transmission.



Ah the infamous hunter. Blasphemous beast, quoting scripture with its impure lungs. Von Rinj checks his pistol and sighs in disgust. It will be hard to cleanse the creature with this toy. But his duty is as clear as the new crater upon bloodwashed Luna.

Move: Aim

Judge Oculus stares at a large eight-by-eight board suspended above a massive churning pit full of dough. Two of the squares light up in sequence and a man in a flimsy PAFer costume charges forward with some sort of weed whacker, bifurcating their target.

"Umm... boss."

The board spins 180 degrees, causing several of the pieces near the edges to stumble, tendrils extending from the pit below to flail at them.

"Why do you distrub my contemplation cycle Speaker?"

"The purifier page won our RADICAL contest. I tried arranging for the EXTREME luxe to be delivered directly so that we could insert a nanophage, but WC has us locked into digital payouts."

Two more squares light up and a piece wearing a Crux costume slowly advances in a straight line, dragging a comically-oversized mallet.

"And?"

The mallet's target stands still only a short while before fleeing out of their square, trying to hide behind the other pieces which studiously ignore them.

"Our BODACIOUS secondary market analytics node is prophesizing that this will be seen as an endorsement, reducing our sales to GNARLY nonstandard genotypes by 2-6%."

"A necessary sacrifice. All markets must be tapped. Even the purifiers shall fall under the sway of our Brands in time. It is inevitable."

The board rotates again. The fleeing piece trips off of the board and a massive smiling face coagulates on the top of the paste to greet him.

"AAA-" slorp

"Your TUBULAR word shall be made MOST RIGHTEOUS deed my liege."

DR: DR2 HazDR: Warp 3 // Cryo 0

HP: 4/4 DR1 Move: 3 Attack: 10/4 Range 1, Crit: Warp Tokens: none
BP: 5/6 (+1 free Tool slot) // Light Armor (1BP) // Anti-Materiel Rifle (3BP) // Meta-Capacitor (0BP) (Tool: as an ACT, spend 1 Warp Token to Upscale unit's next attack or restore 1 HP to unit.) // Scrap Scraper (1BP) (Tool: Rig may Salvage on ACT)

Consumables: Squidpack (Full) // Medikit (Full) // Fabrikit [sub](Full)


Once she'd finished installing the Scrap Scraper onto the Desolate Gunman's Bi-Pedz chassis, Sh'Bang gave the new set of clamping mechanical jaws a couple test chomps in the vacuous lunar air before she stowed the surely-invaluable Tool on the Beta rig's back for later. She had something to take care of first.

Seated within the DoppleHawk-241's Beta cockpit, Sh'Bang toggled several display switches and surveyed the rig console's resulting readouts.

"Okay, that's the Scrap-Scraper, check. The A.M.R. we've already tested, check. Life support systems showing all green, check. Armor and chassis, intact and operational. Moon Mummy?" She paused to tap on the holo-screen feed of the lunar landscape, to zoom in on the motionless Moon Mummy outside. It hadn't moved from where she'd put it. "Check. All rig systems nominal and ready for action! All I need now is for my unwitting volunteer to show up - then the fun can truly begin!"

With the DoppleHawk-241 securely nestled in its shadow-shrouded ambush position, Sh'Bang watched the scan-feeds and waited for signs of a Haunted Enforcer she expected to approach from the northeast. When the hapless Gamma rig would trigger Sh'Bang's proximity perimeter, she'd strike with a ranged shot and then pounce upon her mechanical prey!

Sh'Bang could feel her custom Madcatz Jacklegz© gyro-tail vibrating from excitement as she wiggled in her seat. She'd been anticipating this moment for a while!

Movement: Sh'Bang takes Aim, remaining still in her Ambush site! She waits for the Haunted Enforcer (from 01.10) to appear!

Wishlist: Oh no! I just knew I should have asked you to send me something earlier, Necrotech - now deliveries are gonna be more expensive! Dang - and here I was so close to being able to afford another shipment all on my own, too! Oh well!

Hat
HP: 3/3
Move: 3
Augs: 1/3 Cyber (Jacklegz©), 0/2 Mutant
Luxe In Hand: 8 -> 31 -> 20

It was slow going - after all, she was unfamiliar with these machines, and thus didn't know a solid capacitor from a fried board - but usine the Wreckterminal's instructions, Hat managed to scrape out a decent haul of Luxe from the fallen machines, as well as the Gammageist's main weapon and some blueprints for robot legs. Once she'd taken everything of value that she could see, she walked over to Felix, who was sitting next to a delivery drone with her Optiscope inside, and gave him half of the rescued components. "Hey, kitty, you did real good there. You are the bestest most murderous kitty I ever met, and such a cutie too!" Hat scratched the cat behind the ears, as much as the feline spacesuit would allow for it. "C'mon then, kitty. Shall we make a move?" Hat pulled up the map on her Wreckterminal. "Here, is that purple bit down there growing?"

Giving Felix 11 Luxe. Attaching Optiscope to Dr. Jankenstein. Moving to 09.02 -> 10.02. Felix may peek.
