  1. Upon meeting with Admiral Nelson Hawk arranged lodging and medical care for the survivors of the crash until help could arrive a few days later. Teams were dispatched to begin cleaning up the wreckage and pulling scrap from the sea, as well as burying the dead at the recently established Mt. Willow cemetery before the could begin to decay. Anything Admiral Nelson did not wish to salvage from the ship was broken down and hauled off to the rapidly growing Solitude scrapyard to be used in later projects, with the rest being returned to New Acheron. As cleanup concluded and the people of Externus were once again on their way focus could be returned to further bettering Solitude. "Now gentlemen, I reckon we could finally get some work done." Hawk began, hands on his hips as he stood alongside Mr. Seydlitz and Captain Riker at their previous location where they'd intended to originally begin construction. @Heroshima@nightlight
  2. "Kick you out? Partner I wouldn't dream off it." The marshal exclaimed with a hardy chuckle as he made his way over to the doorway, coffee still in hand. Though the marshal was surrounded by alliance soldiers and staff from his days fighting against the New Legion, it was nice to have another old friend from the Bastion on board. Having Ewyer present made Fort Solitude feel less like, well, solitude. Ever since their arrival in this new world Hawk had been mostly on his own with the Bloodlust Alliance, being stationed in an entirely separate continent and all and with his own set of separate projects. He missed his friends who he'd constantly worked so closely with and grown to accept as family over the years. He felt as if he'd grown apart from them all as all interactions had been brief and strictly business related only. Having Ewyer with him now, even if he hadn't intended to stay forever was a breath of fresh air. A bit of clarity from the obsession of finding the lost children of Atlas that had consumed his mind day in and day out. "I'll check in on you a bit later. There's a walkie on the far desk if you need me." Hawk added as he pushed the tall metal door open and gesturing to the far side of the room with his coffee cup. "I'm on channel 6." With that the marshal exited the lab with full confidence, leaving Ewyer to work his magic. @Pala
  3. Hawk nodded as Ewyer rambled, doing his best to keep up with his ideas. He understood them, most of them anyway. "Right." He smiled. "Speaking of which, I have to go meet with Riker about that triastine now as a matter of fact, then check on the weapons crew after." He sighed lifting his half empty cup of coffee from the table with his mechanical hand and checking his rusty silver pocket watch with the other. "Need anything else before I go? Maybe bring you back something?" The marshal asked looking up to his old friend once more. @Pala
  4. Some of the workers working on the prototype exchanged nervous glances. Finish by the end of the hour? On their first prototype? Such a goal seemed impossible, even for Valentine. Either way they had to try. They worked with great haste and efficiency, eager not to disappoint their bosses on the first job. "I, I suppose it is!" Hawk replied cheerfully. Truth be told he wasn't sure what to expect. While he'd studied a little bit and even seen vehicles like these first hand, Hawk never actually had the opportunity to witness construction like this first hand. He watched as some of the workers began stripping another salvaged vehicle for parts, welding what they needed to the frame like busy ants hard at work. While they didn't quite have everything they needed, they were quick to improvise, at least for now. The farther along they got on the prototype the more 'apocalyptic' some might describe it as it began to look. However to Hawk, it was simply beautiful. The body of the vehicle was constructed out of parts of various junk cars, none of the matching. Despite this, the performance of the vehicle would not be hindered. Surly nothing a little spray paint can't fix. The crew got to work picking the proper tires, while others unboxed the special package from weapons research Staff Sergeant Parris Ryanne had sent down and put together for them. A fifty caliber cordite machine gun to mount on top as some added firepower. @austere.username
  5. The marshal's grin widened as Ewyer took the plans from him. It brought him great joy to see Ewyer actually interested and excited to take on such a project, rather than just a typical commission. "Full authenticity would be appreciated. We managed to collect a small salvage of titanium to start with, but eventually I was thinkin' we could use triastine. While we ain't got any triastine yet, I have Lieutenant Dirge already working on findin' us some." He explained. "We'll need to figure a way to fasten the under-armor and outer shell together, hopefully even pressurize it, so be sure to take that into account. Assuming it'll be very heavy, we'll want to try and ease the weight off the user somehow. I suggest the construction of an electrically powered metal skeleton-like framework inside to be worn by the user to assist and in limb movement and mobility." While previously he had little to no knowledge about such advanced concepts, or really anything about building a suit of armor at all, Hawk quickly found himself captivated by the concept, and began studying up and experimenting ever since their introduction to more advanced technology upon their arrival into Valucre. However he was no expert, and quickly realized he needed someone more capable. He needed Ewyer Nacht. If Hawk was able to get a grasp on something like this in such a short amount of time, surly Ewyer would catch on far quicker. @Pala
  6. Without even needing to be told the crew immediately got to work begin work on the frame. Making quick work welding and forming the shape to their liking. Within the next three hours they were finished, and ready to take the next step assembling the internals. Some of the workers had already began work putting together some of the internal systems, while others prepped the fresh frame for the next phase. "Incredible." Hawk watched curiously as they crew started assembling something he'd never even thought possible out of pure scrap. Although his presence wasn't really required, he'd decided to stick around a while longer out of curiosity, and maybe a little bit or moral support for Valentine. While some working on the project were proud to have the boss watching, others felt somewhat stressed by his unexpected presence overseeing the project. @austere.username
  7. "Things have been well. Busy as you'd imagine. We'll have plenty of time to fill you in on the ride over." He chuckled halfheartedly, the guilt of not writing like he should still soaking in. "Speaking of which, are the two of you ready to get going?" He asked, though not directed at her, looking little Aurora in the eye with a warm smile. @Kiyome
  8. "That's right." Hawk nodded, a wide smile on his tired, rugged face as he took a sip from his coffee cup. Eager to get started the marshal briskly made his way to the table in the center of the room, coffee in hand where he had previously laid out blueprints for the project. The tabletop looked as if a storm had blown through, scattered in blueprints with today's work at the top of the mess. "For the first day, here's what I was thinking we look at." Hawk began, pushing some of the papers aside with his free hand to ensure todays work could be seen clearly. The blueprints laid out before them displayed the armors most basic shell, minus the helmet. The outlines of the plates were highlighted in red so that Ewyer could easily get a feel for the shape. "I figured we'd start where you're most comfortable here with the plated bits. I reckon armor integrity, above all else should be one of our primary focuses." @Pala
  9. Fort Solitude, Bloodlust Stronghold With nearly every area of the Alliance under development with Project ACT, the need for a greater defense was growing. After seeing the many forms of weaponry this world had to offer, Hawk began to realize the Atlesian War Wagon they currently used might not be enough to turn the tide of a battle anymore. They needed something larger. A bigger gun, if you will. To handle this issue Hawk one again tasked Captain Jonathan Riker with the job of seeking out someone who could help them. Someone with the know-how to bulk up their armor division. Despite funds being low, the marshal allowed Riker a sizeable budget to fund the division, for unlike normal transports, using scrap metal and salvage wouldn't cut it this time. @Heroshima@MaskedHero
  10. His smile widened as he wrapped his massive arms around Kiyome with a quiet sigh of relief. "It's good to see you." He whispered as he held her. He held her close for a moment before breaking the embrace to lift little Aurora into his arms. "Looks like someone has grown again! You'll be taller than me before you know it." He chuckled as he held his daughter facing him at eye level in his right arm. @Kiyome
  11. "Enough. For now anyway." Hawk stated simply, unsure of the exact number of gallons. At her request, the team stripped each vehicle clean of its parts down to the very frame. Each part was then sorted to make construction easier now that they had a clean slate. "This fame here looks close enough to the one we need ma'am. With some welding we should be able to modify it enough to do the job nicely." One of the older members of the task force, Sergeant Bryant Thom spoke up as he pointed to the frame on the far side of the room. @austere.username
  12. As the door knob turned Hawk's posture straightened up as if he were greeted by an officer. At first, he didn't say anything, a soft smile growing on his rugged face as he locked eyes with Kiyome. With how busy he had been, it was a breath of fresh air in his lungs to finally see her again. For a moment, all his work and problems faded into the back of his mind. "Howdy love." He spoke finally in a soft tone. Truthfully he still wasn't sure how she would feel about his arrival, as he hadn't been a very good boyfriend by not keeping in close contact, and certainly not a good father. Ever since the fall, Hawk's very existence had been dedicated to saving the Atlesian people, and returning the lost as he fell deeper and deeper into his obsession. @Kiyome
  13. Hawk nodded maintaining the smile. "Alright partner. I'll meet you here in the morning. Rest well." After bidding his old friend goodnight, the marshal exited the laboratory, leaving Ewyer and Riker to their work. The following morning, the marshal reported to the same room of the laboratory at 0900 with a low burning cigar in his lips, just as they had discussed. He wasted no time getting out of bed that day, for he was too eager to sleep. Finally they would be beginning work on the armor. The armor that could be the key to saving millions. Using his key, Hawk let himself into the lab as he waited for Ewyer's arrival. Upon entry, Hawk almost immediately made use the coffee machine they had installed in the corner of the room. Who knew such an amazing invention even existed! Certainly a far quicker and more conventional method than brewing over a campfire thats for sure. @Pala

    The marshal glared at her for a moment before moving on. "A week or two if we're lucky. The isle is pretty fortified. We'll have to smash through their blockade and siege the fort by sea before we can make landfall. Even then, the island contains thick forests and extensive cave systems. We ain't quite sure how many they got in there yet. Unless we wanna charge into that blind, we'll need to pack some extra punch. Something they won't be expecting." He paused before continuing. "Ewyer and I are working a plan for that, but the Bloodlust Alliance currently lacks the funding we need to efficiently produce the vehicles and firearms we'll need for this and future operations. Thus far all my attempts to find a contractor have failed. My men in Fort Solitude can only produce a vehicle a day and a dozen or so firearms, assuming we have the scrap we need on hand." Hawk explained. "Additionally, I have to arrange a meeting with the Carmine Dominion to see about getting my hands on some Triastine for the project Ewyer and I are working on." @Phoebe

    "No reason to help for more?! There are millions and millions of lives at stake. I'm not talking about us, we were the lucky ones. We're safe. The fact that he could just sit back knowing there are more out there suffering is sick. With a power like that, it should be his responsibility to help with shit like this. Not something we have to practically beg for. I'm grateful for what James has done for us, but we don't have another choice. As much as I hate to say it, he's our only option." He snarled, leaning forward in his chair. "I'm working on a lead. That magic rapier he used to carry around all the time was discovered within the Herograd site following the fall. It was logged in the inventory list during cleanup, but the shipment never made it to the extraction point. From what my scouts have deduced, the shipment was ambushed by raiders somewhere between Acheron and Herograd. I have my best on it now. So far, we think it may have been taken to an abandoned military stronghold in the northern Atlesian islets. Seems a rather large group of raiders have made themselves at home there. I reckon that rapier and the rest of our stolen munitions for that matter are in the hands of some local warlord." Hawk explained, the wood of the chair creaking beneath his weight as he slowly leaned back. @Phoebe
