Ahem...entry one...day one. Well...another one for the Meat Grinder. Hello there SB. This is GundamChief. You can call me Chief or Gundam, I prefer Chief. You know the drill. A Rob got interested in what was happening at SB and saw all of the people who were giving such “entertaining” shows to his/her fellow Robs that He/She just had to join in. So...here I am. To start with, I was at home in Alaska, just finished a day of working in the yard. Doing prep for the winter to come, and the upcoming five month vacation to Florida when suddenly...I black out. Just like that. One moment, reading, next, waking up in the middle of a forest. Naturally I was calm.... (He wasn’t, he was panicking like a frightened fawn ) After I took a deep and careful look at my situation, I realized that either I was dreaming or I had...well...let’s be honest, I’m more open minded to the possibility of weird shit happening then most so it wasn’t a stretch to say “I wasn’t in Alaska anymore”. The question was where? I’m still not sure even now, but it didn’t take long after that to find the root cause and what I was in for. I started walking along the forest, looking for landmarks, hills, sounds of water, etc when lo and behold...I find this. Yes. I can take pictures. I’ll explain that in a bit. I find this machine and was in awe...and inwardly felt more than a bit of my inner fanboy squeal. That’s when I noticed the large container to the left of the machine and saw a letter. Allow me to quote. Ahem “Comrade Captain ChumBucket. Seeing that you found my little gift, I won’t waste too much time explaining. This machine as you may well know is called a Heavy Gear. The model is famously known as the Hunter and is pretty much the first combat Gear ever made. Along with this is a lot of stuff in a box. Most of it is tools so you are self sufficient and allows you to do your task more efficiently. What’s your task? Why...to cause Destruction, Mayhem, and make a grand nuisance of yourself to everyone you come across. Sounds simple doesn’t it? heh. Well....we’ll see if it is or not won’t we? In addition to all of the crap in the box and the machine I’ve decided to make it a bit easy for you to start with. Instead of making you learn how to use all of this stuff, I’ve implanted the necessary knowledge into you. Only the basic knowledge though. You want to be better, you gotta work for it. Also don’t be too scared when you meet the locals. Their rust buckets come from a golden age long past. ’on that note....’Sayonara, don’t let the dragons bite’ >:3” ...There’s emphasis on that last sentance for some reason, and I don’t like that. Anyways, so here I am with a Gear, and a box of equipment. and no clue to where the hell I am in the world. If I’m even still on earth. Well...I’ll start with what I have learned so far after the letter. I looked at the gear and it was pretty much brand new from what I could tell. Not used or anything. Looked fresh from the factory. It was fully armored and fully equipped. Weapons and everything. So I got my Autocannon rifle, a rocket launcher, grenades that are gear sized hand grenades, anti-personnel grenade launcher, and a vibroknife. I haven’t gotten inside yet so I can’t give a status report on function, but I’m gonna assume it’s functional since...Rob’d be lame if he/she gave me a broken Gear. The Container is made to be placed on the gear to like a backpack, so I can carry all of my stuff with me. The stuff inside is mostly survival gear on and off the battlefield, but there’s some electronics in there. One of which is how I’m talking to you right now. In addition to knowing how to use the gear, I know how to use my stuff. the item I’m using right now is a “Field” class Dataglove. Comes from the Heavy Gear universe. Pretty much a glove that covers your entire arm and acts like a Pipboy, only with functions to interact with other machines and computers via wireless, is in fact a personal computer and with a variety of other function. This in addition to another item, an Electronic Transcriber, is allowing me to dictate this to the Dataglove and send it to you. I’ll just give a list of what I have and be done with it. If you guys have the books you can find them easily enough. “Field” Dataglove Electronic Transcriber Audio Reciever Audio Recorder Information Pad Personal Assistant (PDA basically) Trivideo Recorder Trivideo Receiver a Wrist Watch /) Medical Belt & Scanner Drug Packet (contains all sorts of stuff.Painkillers mostly, though I got some sleepers and euphoric drugs too) Medical Kit Personal Hygiene Kit Load Bearing Equipment a Tent Water Condenser a few survival Blankets Water Purification Tablets a Field Stove (love this thing) a Backpack a few flashlights and flares a few weeks of field rations (M.R.E.s......Meals Rejected by Everyone ) a Mechanical kit for maintenance and modification a tech-rig for basic repair work on...everything really. WEP Army Omnitool a gun Cleaning Kit an entrenching tool and a Gear Pilot suit/helmet Now we get to the toys. A "Pexton Collins" 13mm Magnum Revolver with 15 boxes of rounds. Each carries 20 rounds. so I got 500 rounds for this baby. Hellboy...move aside and grenades...got a bunch of them too. I got five of each type that exists in the Gearverse. I have 5~ Jamming grenades Flashbangs Concussion Incindiary Fragmentation and Gas grenades which are divided into three types. Smoke, Tear gas, and Nerve gas. with all of that in mind...I put on the pilot suit, strapped on the revolver and the gun harness that came with it and took a few grenades (2 frags and t2 flashbangs) and looked around. That brings us to where we are now. I can see a hill about 12 miles away which rises up about 500 feet or so. It’s pretty flat on top as well and not steep so I’ll be able to see all around me from there. If I can find a town or something maybe I can find out where I am and what world I’m on.
