Gorgon continued firing his chaingun, occasionally firing the shoulder cannon. He was getting annoyed as he couldn't seem to hit the two Cybertrons from where he was and contemplated using his super jump to get closer.
"That's right, you run little one!", sneered Glitch as he thought to himself. "Right it's now or never! Btetter make this good!"
Sending a remote soundless signal through a disclosed channel, Glitch sent a signal to Duel. The leader of the Assault team tapped his lower arm upon receiving the signal and fired a heavy blast near glitch, a blast sideswiping the Cybertron and knocking him clean off his feet. The blast made Torrent spin round, just as he did at the edge of the forest she saw Glitch go over from the blast.
"UGH... Too close..."
+++ COMMS +++ It wasn't meant to end like this! R-run Torrent and save yourself! Get help and I'll hold them off
Keep running, and whatever you do don't look back! This is my destiny To die fighting! !+++ COMMS +++
"Hehe, yeah that'll do the job. Supid Cybertronian, run, run to your masters!"
As Spoiler, Gorgon, Scathe and Throttle were about to open fire, Duel waved out his arm, "Hold it! Cease fire! For now.."
+++ COMMS +++ "This is Duel to Lord Triton, everything has proceed as expected and we have the prisoner!" ++++COMMS
+++ COMMS +++ "Excellent, I'll bring the ship personally. Quickchange, stay here and guard the computer" ++++COMMS
"Prisoner? Those are the terms we agreed on!", snarled Glitch.
"Shut it you!", rasped Duel, "Perhaps you'd like to take it up with Lord Triton himself? This is the deal prey he doesn't alter it any further! You work for us now! Don't forget that! Now get on your feet!"
OOC: You can make a final post in here if you wish Highram or go straight back to the Cybertronian HQ thread and leg it home to tell the others.
The sleek dark purple ship of the Destrons eventually arrived and thrusted down into the clearing of the forest. As the jets of steam fizzed out, the landing ramp lowered revealing only Lord Triton.
"Welcome home Glitch! I trust you know my crew, as they will surely come to know you. The two goons to the far side are Scathe and Gorgon, these 5, throttle, spoiler, roadranger, longrange and of course their trusted leader, Duel. You'll meet the others in due course."
"Flattered, I'm sure"
"Oh now come, don't be too hard on them. They were just doing they're job. Destron's gather round I'd like you to meet your new comrade, Double agent Glitch.
Gorgon, Scathe take this one to the ship, and make him welcome! The rest of you gather the supplies and load the ship up we're moving out."
As Scathe and Gorgon roughly manhandled Glitch he let out a small protest, "Hey easy I'm one of you now!"
"Oh you've still got a long way to go before you fully become one of us Cybetron, and OH so many secrets still to tell!"
Aboard the ship a CR chamber's lid slowly begun to lift automatically admist a jet of steam, revealing a destron inside. He had been kept intact for a month whilst his body functions and systems were repaired by super-advanced Cybernano-technology. Now finally he was back amongst living, his dull optics flickered with a pinky-red as they came online, within a klick he sat up right in his chamber. Armed and ready with the momries of events previously played.
"Stealth, blending in, something a great lug like you wouldn't know to much about. let me guess, you see, you bash, you destroy? I can appreciate that, but sometimes you need cunning and the ability to play others..", replied Glitch as he was frog-marched onto the ship.
The others gathered all the resources they had destroyed onto the ship with Lord Triton the last to get on board, a last look at the area as the ship began to rise.. As the ship rose the cargo ramp closed on Triton, the ship activating it's cloak as by now Throttle knew the routine having been on stasis for so long before being reawakened like the others. Returning to the bridge, Triton was pleasantly surprised top see Rampart back on the bridge.
"So you've finally decided to join us?"
"I am fully repaired, yes! That doesn't mean I've forgotten what you've did to me!"
"A lesson in manners might be in order as well, you crossed me once to often, DON'T do it again or next time I may it permanent. That goes for any of you! Throttle get us back to the mountain cave and our new base of operations."
OOC: Gorgon can make a post here otherwise please continue in the previous "Mountain Region (Destrons)" thread.
The Cybertron crew reached the edge of the burned out forest, already decimated by fire it now painted a scene of burnt trees , those that were left , and a lot of tree stumps. Bot foot imprints were scattered everywhere, as well as all the pot holes in the ground directly around them from laser fire, the odd burnt tree also splintered from the previous fire-fight.
"So this is it? There isn't much left. Primus knows how many native wildlife had their home destroyed because of the Destrons..", announced Noble.
Reaper remained high above the forest. He didn't like the destruction he saw below. There was something about the planet that he'd come to life, and seeing this forest ripped apart made him want to do the same to some of the Destrons.
Dinoboss' scan located high amounts of Energon residue within the former forest. and large imprints of a ship landing ramp, all three of them. Just as it seemed the sans were only turning up nothing ordinary, the scanner began making noises as it located a charred plate of armour on the forest floor. Singed but with some of the synthetic grey fur still intact, it was clearly Glitch's armour...
"Maybe we should scout a wider area?", asked Convoy but was then interruped by a comm bleep. "Signal, but it's source is too weak to get out this far, even with most of the forest gone. I must leave you temporarily, but keep looking, and gather ideas about which direction to head outside of this forest. Maybe Reaper has some good views from up there?, ordered Convoy and transformed into his winged lion mode and ran from the clearing to just outside the forest.
