Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
Kazimir was on his way towards the Aces Wilds' known meeting hall. He was just in time for a show when he arrived by the entrance doors. He can only manage a chuckle and a slight grin, "Brazen as ever I see.. Its been awhile, Tomoe. Not since the Simulator Fiasco if I recall correctly."

"I heard that you took down the Black Widows toe to toe in a fight? Impressive but enough about pleasantries, I'm here for business. I was trying to reserve a contract related to battling out the Davion Heavy Guards but it seems your unit had already placed a bid on it. I would like to participate in that mission if you'll have me but not a member of your motley crew, Yet. I still have other plans and lets say this is just a temporary measure."

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
Rolling right along to answer Kazimir's query Tomoe makes him a counter offer.

”I would not use the words Fiasco or Motley but yes you have the gist of it.  However given the nature of the contract and our financial situation I can not offer anyone a spot on the mission without being a proper member of the Aces Wild.

Now we don't claim to own your soul but for the duration of the mission you will be required to be part of the unit in a fully legally binding manner, if you wish to opt out after everything is over you can do so but I can't just go around picking up stragglers and mavericks.”

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
"And what will you get from me joining you? I don't see any benefit from it. You and your team is already a high profile group for the media to hound on. By letting me join, this process will legally bind my actions as an action within the Aces Wilds so should any mishap or problems that I may cause, `of-course not on purpose`, will also affect your unit as a whole. Bad for your Rep so to speak. Same can be said if I do something to better the group. Should something like this do happen, my immediate withdrawal from the group after the mission will cause suspicion and confusion for the media. I would have suspected given your current status and the attention you are making, the good and the bad, you would likely have kept a low profile for now. Unfortunately I was wrong, this offer of yours only suggests that you wish to further promote your team. Aggressive as always."

"Its a risky move even for you. However think about this, If I accompany your team through the contract as an independent free-lancer giving aid to your unit won't be much of a 'news highlight'. I will most likely be brushed aside by the media or even the Davion Guards, who by now may have already heard the news of Kerensky's defeat. They won't see me as much of a threat or even consider it slightly. Everyone will be particularly interested in gunning down the Aces Wilds than focusing on an unknown Freelancer. It will make it easier for me and your team to quickly wrap this contract up. Which does gives both of us an edge in the battlefield and out. In the end, I might think it will give both parties a chance to come out of this as equal winners with heavier pockets. But that is just my opinion, if you still wish me to join, I'll follow your orders till my severance fee has been delivered."

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
Tomoe shrugs to show her distaste for the idea of quibbling.

”The contract is under the Aces Wild's name, anything that goes on during the contract will reflect on us, the offer stands, you join us, or you don't, if you have somewhere else to be then you would not be here.”

"I have no choice then do I? I did already state my opinion but since I did came here for a purpose and that is to paritcipate in that contract so I wont mind joining you and yours truly for awhile."

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
One of Alicia's eyebrows raises as she hears Riley's offer.

"Hmmm... well, if we can get a lance together, we might try that one... of course, there are other good contracts out there, too..."

She called one up on her handheld and took a close look at it.

"If you could get the rest of a lance together, well, I suppose that I could see fit to tag along.  It'll just give me more money in case I want to pick something up... I've honestly been thinking about a Hollander- customized, mind you.  That one I had to take down against the Widow's crew wasn't exactly a pushover- especially not if I enhance the armor around its head and put some better equipment on it. Won't have the maneuverability of my Mongoose, but it should be able to pack a lot more in the way of weaponry.  I might need to come up with some names or something eventually... have to keep them all straight in my head."

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
Relying to Alicia he smiles. "Sure, i'll set it up for us. I'm thinking along similar lines for my next purchase, will have to wait and see whats available once i pull the funds together."

Seeing the two newcomers by the door Riley turns to watch the developing conversation. "I guess that makes Kazmir our third"

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
"Perhaps.  But are we going to have to ask Tomoe to assign a lance commander, or should we choose one ourselves?  I can see the Davion mission, but if we were feeling really lucky, well... we could always go see about that mission against the Smoke Jaguars.  Intel says light and medium mechs and assets, so maybe with a couple of freelancers we might be able to pull that off.  But I'd prefer to hold off on that one until we get at least six 'Mechs.  Clanners play for keeps, and I'm not about to wear the bracelet simply because I underestimated a pilot."

She called up the stats for her Mongoose and studied them.

"If you have any idea on other pilots or freelancers you want to hire, then I'd say go for it.  I think I might just go and switch out the sinks on my Mongoose... they're a bit heavier, but at the same time, each does the work of two.  I bet I could get a few more guns on it if I found a way to cut weight..."

Continuing to poke at her handheld, she blew a few strands of hair out of her eyes and got up.

"Let me know when you want to head out on the Davion job. I'm going to go see about getting some new weapons and better equipment on my 'Mech.  I'll be down bothering James if you need to find me."

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
After finishing her impromptu interview with Kazimir out in the hallway Tomoe pops back into the briefing room proper and helps with the introductions before seeing herself off to her next mission.

”Kazimir, this is Alicia she is the lance leader we will be sending to New Avalon, you will be under her fine supervision I hope to hear good things about how well you two get along, now I have to see a man about an experiment so I will leave you to pound out the details, but don't take to long I am sure the folks in the Davion Heavy Guard are used to some bureaucratic delays but there is no reason we should be adding to them.”

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
Watching things unfold in the Briefing room Riley starts to write out a message to send to their employer for this mission. Stating that himself, Alicia and Kazmir will be accepting the mission and asking for any more information they will give on the location, climactic conditions and enemy forces.

Thank you for updating your status, the Davions have been wondering about the inquiry. They are currently looking forward to seeing the Aces Wilds in action. As of note, the Davions would like you to list down the Pilots that will accompany you for the practice battle.

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
As he reads the message from the Liaison Officer another message arrives in the briefing room. Quickly reading it Riley shrugs as another pilot has requested to come along on this mission. Taking note of the name he formulates his reply for the Liaison.

We thank the Davions for their patience in this matter. We will be bringing four pilots to face your forces in this practice exercise. They are Alicia Wilds, Riley Finn, Kazmir Glazkov and Clayton Winters. Given that our foes will know our unit composition, i would ask that similar courtesy be returned and you provide information on the forces to be fielded against us.

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
Alicia strolled back in, having taken care of everything with her Mongoose. It would hopefully be a speedy thing of death before long... but she was still nervous about the upcoming mission.  she glanced at the screen, seeing the transmission from the liason officer, and began to prepare a response of her own.

She did her best to prepare a table like the one that was sent, but this kind of thing... well, she belonged in a cockpit instead of filing papers.  She looked up from the screen and sighed.

"I'm more of a 'push button and opponent goes 'boom' type of girl... setting this stuff up is beyond me."

"From what i remember Galahad's aren't that quick. So i guess i'll be sticking with my urban for this mission. Unless there's any concerns on that front? How are you having it set up?" Riley directs this last question directly to Kazmir.

"Judging from the list they sent us, they aren't push overs. So I'm sure you'll need a Heavy for a support. My Load-out will have one weapon for each range. I'm pretty skilled in overwriting the safety system to overload a Mech's engine to give me some extra boost in speed [Rush]. So I'm pretty sure I won't slow you folks down."

"Well i'll be honest my Urban is quite slow, but it packs a much bigger punch than my Mongoose. Something i think we'll need against those guys. It's mainly an LRM boat, but it has some ER SLs to deal with stuff up close."

Re: Briefing Room [Aces Wilds]
"Honestly, it looks like they won't be able to move that fast... it might be a good idea to try to get in close on that heavy and beat it that way. We'll just have to hit them from long range and hope that once we close, we've taken at least one of them down."

She hit a few more keys and started to put together the reply message.

"So that's a Galahad, a pair of Mongooses, and an Urban..."

Clayton walked into the briefing room after knocking at the threshold.

Excuse me, is this the correct place ?

He asked after realising Alicia was in the room. He walked in someowhat hesitantly looking about and then focusing on Alicia.

I am sorry if I kept you waiting. I had some business to attend to. Thank you very much for this oppertunity. I hope to not let you down.
