Campaign Summary: All the heroes disappear, leaving Earth much more vulnerable than is comfortable. A government funded organisation takes charge of the military for defence and recovery of the lost heroes.

Brief Excerpts from a military report dated July 0086.

"Earth forces fought back the forces of the Principality of Zeon in the One year war several years ago. Since then, they have attempted various attacks, but a second full on war has been avoided." (One year war was 0079)

"In the meantime, the Earth Forces, led by Nergal, have put an end to the Lizard War against the Jovians in a recent battle at Mars' North Pole. The details of the battle and its participants are highly classified. Recently, Nergal industries have been tried for war crimes and have since gone underground."

"Dr Hell continues to attack Japan with his monsters. The Mazinger Team constantly fight to protect the city folk."

"Mithril are in an ongoing battle against terrorist forces, as well as protecting the Whispered"

"The Getter group are currently rebuilding their base after a somewhat devastating Oni attack"

"Construction of the Buster Machines is nearing completion. Its pilots have been selected and have been undergoing heavy training. This unit is being built specifically to fight the STMC threat - In the past attacks, the vast population of mechas have banded together to fend them off"

"Unknown forces have started attacking. Their attacks are fast and destructive. None who have seen them have survived to be able to report. 'Serenity', Another government funded group, have reportedly been investigating these enemies and have even gone as far as building weapons to use against them. They are highly secretive, so all that is known about these weapons is that Serenity has built hangars in sizes suitable for both real and super robots."

--

On the fourteenth of September, 0086, all ace pilots, heroes, villains, and the crews of famous battleships disappeared (Basically, the main characters from the shows - protagonist and antagonists). Every Abduction happened at the same time. Recorded footage of the victims at the time of the event simply shows them disappearing, apparently into thin air. Serenity has been put in charge of recovering the victims and defending earth while the other forces are in disarray. Given this new, massive duty, Serenity are now hiring...

On the news is a speech given by Glen Miller, a large, barrel-chested man wearing the standard white and yellow of the group Serenity.

"Our hearts go out to the families of everyone who was taken. But we are of the opinion that what you need right now is not the petty sympathy of strangers, but rather their action, and the commitment to save and rescue your loved ones, Our heroes and saviours. You need people willing to give it all to save their lives, as THEY HAVE DONE FOR US! For this reason, we are putting together several squads whose entire existence will depend on Finding where they are hiding them and BRINGING THEM BACK SAFELY! Sadly, due to our tragic losses, the earth is currently under threat from all of our aggressors. For this reason, we need to share our attention between not only rescuing our heroes, but protecting everyone else as well. Our Squads will shoulder both responsibilities. We have the will, we have the weapons, we have the units. We lack the manpower. Please, in our time of need, the time where Earth has no choice but to rely on solidarity, join Serenity. Make a difference."

"Sir, it looks like the Zeon are mobilising!"

"What!? Why?"

"Uh... they didn't phone and tell us, Sorry"

"Not the time for jokes, Lieutenant. Keep me posted"

"Understood!"

Time: 9:00 (24 hr time)

Location: Briefing room 4.

The PCs have all been told to come to Briefing room 4 at 9:00. What's happening now is at 9:00. If you want to have arrived early and talked amongst yourselves, or whatever, then you can.

A small woman looking to be in her 20's enters the room. Her short black hair has a dark blue streak and she is wearing a standard Serenity uniform of White and Yellow, though her skirt seems shorter than it should be.

"Good morning. It's nice to meet you all. My name is Kara Nerisa. You're probably wondering why I've called you all here, such a ragtag group of people", she says, while looking at each of you. "Hmm... It seems someone is late. Well, I guess that good for nothing will get here when it suits her".

As she is about to continue, the door opens and a tall, elegant man steps in. "Hey, Neri. I'm a bit early, sorry. just pretend I'm not here."

"And just HOW could I do that?", she replies in an obviously jovial cutesy manner.

"You'll manage"

"Well it took less time to get completely off track than I thought it would!", She continues, turning back to the assembled characters. "In short, control have reviewed your personnel files and have decided to move you to a small specialist squad. Our task for the time being is observation. Combat should be avoided, but we all know how that can turn out. Any questions so far?"

Ichigo stood up to be seen for his short stature, his back held stiffly in position before he spoke his thoughts. "What are we looking for, ma'am? A force wouldn't have been assembled on such short notice if we weren't looking for something and were overstretched in other areas."

Time: 9:00 (24 hr time)

Location: Briefing room 4.

Characters: Kara Nerisa, ???, Julian Garcia, Ichigo Merlina, Kenshi Motoyama?, Lucy Anderson, Tamios Yaon

Kara takes on a much more serious look, and her tone of voice is much less jocular.

"As you may be aware, the Principality of Zeon has started mobilising their main forces. We have three objectives. First is to find their targets, Second is to take images or video footage of a rumoured Zeon Super Robot should it truly exist and third, watch and discover if the Hostile force that kidnapped our people make any kind of appearance with their forces. Kaoru", She pauses to look at her watch, "is going to take care of all of your recording tasks, you protect her and look for anything she's missing. So far Zeon haven't attacked the other recon team we sent out, though they aren't hiding the fact that they know we're watching them"

She continues after having a sip from her Thermos, "As for your next question, we aren't using long range telemetry because that hasn't been sufficient to get any decent imagery of the Sjena in their past attacks. We want to know how they fight, because as it stands, we don't have a chance against them. Any more questions? I know this is a lot to take in, so you can take your time. We've got pretty much all day to get you oriented."

Hearing how the short guy was asking about the objective of the mission, Julian just waited for a chance to ask an important question... of sort. When the briefing Serenity officer, Kara, or something like that, finished with the details of the mission (A reconnaissance work, where a supposedly Zeon super robot was deployed), he raised his hand and stood up. "Which mechs are we going to use for this mission?"

Her serious face drops almost immediately, "Ah, yeah! That's why cutie-chan is here! We'll get to that in a little while. Don't worry, though. You'll get some awesome stuff to break. Or fix", she says, looking at Kenshi.

"If there are no more questions, would you care to introduce yourselves?"

Tamios stood rigidly from his seat and saluted at Kara and the gentleman standing near her.

"Tamios Yoan! Top Division! Pleasure to be working with you all! Sir!" he shouted out before dropping his salute and sitting back down, still stiff as a board.

Time: 9:00 AM

Location: Briefing Room 4.

Character: Kenshi Motoyama

Kenshi brushed back his short untied hair and made a funny face at Kara. "Th-thanks?" He said confused. "Break and fix stuff? Sounds like fun." Putting a smile on his face.

Took a quick glance around the room and sat in one of the chairs around the table "So I guess I'll get the ball rolling." "The names Kenshi and I have another personality named Heita and he doesn't talk much and no I am not kidding." Then he pushed his hair out of his eyes and leaned on the table with his arms. "Other then that I can fix stuff so uhh...I look forward to workin' with all of you."

Character: Kara Nerisa

Kara interrupts the proceedings, "Kenshi has been made the chief engineer for this squad. Thats means that he is in charge of all repairs and modifications to your units. If you have any problems, He is who you go to. When you're in the field, he will be monitoring your mechs and handling your communications"

Character: Kenshi Motoyama

Kenshi nods in response. "Other then that. If you have any specifics let me know."

Location: Briefing Room 4.

Character: Ichigo Merlina

Ichigo stood up to speak again, gesturing slightly to himself as he did. "My name is Ichigo Merlina, fighter pilot." He looked over Nerisa before saying "I hope you kept that in mind, because I have absolutely no training with any of those mobile suits or arm slaves that most of my Federation compatriots transferred into. You'd be better off tossing me into a cosmo fighter."

Character: Julian Garcia

Since everybody was presenting themselves, Julian didn't want to look like a complete asshole by not doing so. Besides, that type of behavior shows that somebody has a very bad manners. He stood up, smiling with a sad face, his normal face, and said, almost shouting-"My name is Julian Garcia. I'm a sniper working for Serenity" Believing that his white and yellow uniform with the Serenity logo was a normal clue even for the most idiot, he didn't say anything else. "I'm honored to work with you all, people"

Characters: Lucy Anderson

A red-headed young woman hurried into the room.

"Um... I'm sorry I'm late... I was doing some repairs to my unit..."

Noticing the introductions, she continued.

"I'm Lucy Anderson, one of the mechanics here. Pleased to meet you all."

Location: Briefing room 4.

Characters: Kara Nerisa, ???, Julian Garcia, Ichigo Merlina, Kenshi Motoyama?, Lucy Anderson, Tamios Yaon

(I was just assuming Lucy was here before, since that's not the case, pretend everything I said before was relevant to her not being here :D)

Kara smiles broadly before moving on, "Lucy. You've been assigned to this group, working under me. You've been assigned pilot duties. Kenshi is assigned to be the squad mechanic, so you'll have to argue with him about who gets to do repairs on your unit. Now, I'll hand you all over to Nabemura. And while he works his magic, I'm going to go find Kaoru"

Nabemura heads to the front of the room as Kara leaves. "Good morning, as she said, I'm Nabemura Itake. Please, fill in one of these forms. You don't have to do it immediately, but it would be good to have done by the end of the day. This is just a simple equipment request form. We'll do our best to get you what you need. Even you need to fill it out, Kenshi. You never know when you may need to evacuate, or provide emergency repairs."

"Now, at Serenity, we have made an effort to keep a good relationship with the other armed forces or private companies. As a result, we are generally able to procure any kind of unit. This isn't to say we can get anything, however, so please don't request anything too far-fetched, like Mithrils Arbalest or THE Mazinkaiser. We also have our own range of units, but we understand that you would prefer to use what you're familiar with"

He turns a large screen on and continues, "Anyway, for those unfamiliar, here is a run-down of our units"

A presentation designed for mecha enthusiasts, military fans and those in the service begins.

Dove - A fighter plane that is able to hover. It has heavy armour plating for use in space, while in an atmosphere, it usually shuns this armour as it's weight takes away too much manoeuvrability (weight not being an issue in space). It is armed with rockets, machine guns and a "Plasma charge". The Plasma charge is a form of defence adapted for offence - the area directly in front of the unit is superheated, and the pilot rams their enemy. The defensive effects weren't as pronounced as expected, but the use as a ram caused the engineers to leave the engine in place.

Fox - Specially-produced light unit. Extremely Agile and fast. With a psychic soldier, this could easily dodge a Wide Burst weapon at point-blank range. It is armed with a beam sabre, beam rifle and missiles. If it Does get hit, chances are it will be disabled. In this case, the chances of injury to the pilot are higher than most units, as there is less room for pilot safety mechanisms. For a pilot to use one of these, it must be customised to their needs(Theres enough time to do this for you guys)

Wolf - This is a standard, light, mass produced type unit. It stands 16 meters tall and can be armed with a very wide range of weapons. While it is designed for ranged combat, the right selection of melee weapons can make it a viable melee unit. Think GMs, Gespents, Zakus, Ginns, etc.

Tiger - This unit is Similar in design to the Wolf. It is slightly more armoured and more powerful. It's primary design is for melee combat, but it has can take plenty of armaments and it quite capable of using ranged attacks. Think Huckebein, Gundam, etc.

Panther - The premise for this unit is that is a Super Robot that is designed for dodging. It can take a bit more punishment than a standard RR, and is slightly less agile, but it contains more offensive abilities (Less than a standard SR, though). The unit was mostly designed because the engineering crew felt like it, but also to test a theory regarding various metals. It stands 27 meters tall. It can fire a beam weapon from it's forehead, and another from it's torso. It also has an attack that appears to be a long ranged punch, but is, in fact, an explosive projectile fired from the wrist.

Lion - This is Serenity's main Super Robot. It stands 34 meters tall and is heavily armoured. It has two sets of arms, the normal pair, and another pair designed to use the standard RR weaponry. It's hands can be fired at the enemy, and can be forced to explode if the pilot desires (The unit keeps 5 spare hands in it's arms, the last non-explosive). These hands are impossible to detonate without the pilot wishing so, and cannot be detonated if attached to the arm. If the hand is fired as a rocket punch, it will always return. The unit also has beams that can be fired from the head and torso. It has a massive energy sword that can be used nearly indefinitely.

"So, you can use those, or you can pick something else you'd prefer, like an Arm Slave, an MP Gundam, Aesti, and so forth. We helped Professor Saotome out, so he might provide a failed Get machine, Ichigo. Anyway, as you can see, Serenity works a bit different to most other organisations, so make the most of it. Also, Lucy. You already have a unit, but could you please fill in the form with it's details anyway. Just a minor paperwork issue."

The form is fairly basic, requiring your name, ID number, the unit you want, it's technical name if you know it, the company/group of origin, any modifications or additional components you want, etc. If you care, you can actually do it, if not, just say what you want and we'll assume you filled out the form.

That's good, Ryuu. Probably more effort than I'd have gone to XD

Time: 9:10 (24 hr time)

Location: ???

Characters: ???, Nick Styles

??? says, "Nick. Your tasks in our department are now complete. Our higher ups have requested that I tell you that you're being transferred to a new squad. You're currently 10 minutes late for your first meeting in Briefing room 4. Kara doesn't know about your transfer yet, so don't worry if she's surprised. It was good working with you. Come back and have a drink with us some time! Just... remember that this sections work isn't to be discussed..."

Time: 9:10 (24 hr time)

Location: Outside Kaoru's room

Characters: Kara Nerise, Kaoru

Kara bangs on the door a few times. After waiting for a minute, she simply barges in. Kaoru, a short, freckled girl in glasses, appears to have fallen asleep at her desk, partway through brushing her hair. The anger leaves Kara immediately, and she gently picks up the young girl and puts her on her bed. ~So he had you awake working with that damn mech all night again, huh? I swear...

"Understood! Thank's for everything..i'll be sure to check back in..!" Nick frowned at the mention of Kara, but nodded before turning on his heels and running for the designated briefing room. Ever since the dissappearances on September 14.. it seemed like everything was going to get even more crazy than it already was.

Arriving in a huff, Nick looked around to survey what was going on at the moment. Hopefully he didn't miss anything too important.

Nabemura Itake looks at Nick curiously, "Eeto... Hi there. Can I help you at all? If you're here for the briefing, you'll.. have to wait for Kara to return. I .. can't help you yet, because I thought this group was all that we had coming..."

Almost immediately after he says this, Kara returns and says, "You'll have to wait until another time to meet Kaoru. She had a busy night..."

She stops talking and looks at Nick. "I've seen you around before. Do you need me for something..?"

"No problem!" Nick said, looking at the others gathered about already. He wasn't sure about their exact purpose, although it wouldn't be taking very long now to figure out.

At Kara's Inquiry, Nick nodded. "I'm Nick. They've transferred me to the new squad. Sorry i'm late!" He said.

After he filled the request form, Julian just waited for new orders from his superior officer. But when he though something interesting was going to happen, another person came into the briefing room, saying something about been late. He was called Nick, or something like that. "Welcome to the team, I guess?"He sad, brefly smiling, before returning to his deadpan and serious face.
