22XX: the dawn of a new century.
Maverick presence has been dwindling lately. some think the Maverick Wars may be over, others think the enemy is merely regrouping. There are many bands of Mavericks, each standing for a different cause. 4 of Sigmas Generals remain dedicated to Sigma's original mission; extermination of the human race. Sigma's Generals have been locked in a war against the New Generation Reploid Militia, dedicated to disposing of Old Reploids and exterminating humans. Another faction that is giving the Maverick Hunters a large amount of hassle is the Anarchist Raiders, A group that just likes to destroy things, they even ran into a battle between the Maverick Hunters and Sigmas Forces and began firing on all parties. The United Mercenaries aren't necessarily considered Maverick, but the Hunters are under direct orders to capture any Mercenaries for evaluation. An unknown group of Mavericks attacked a Maverick Hunter outpost outside of the Eurasia Crash Site, their job was to keep people away from the crash site, certain death awaits anybody who enters the crash site. The Mavericks entered the site, Maverick Hunters are working out a way to send a search party in with Maverick Hunter Zero to investigate the invaders but for now Zero, Axl and X are to take out Sigmas remaining generals.
X: Commander Signas, what would be the best course of action for this mission?
Signas: It is a well known fact that Flare Raptor is dangerous, He wont back down from anyone.
X: Computer, bring up our profile on Flare Raptor.
Power: 1450 RP
Speed: 9500 RP
Origin: Formerly a Member of Repliforce, He was one of the few members to surrender to the Maverick Hunters for questioning after the Sky Lagoon crashed. It was determined that He had nothing to do with the incident and He was released from their custody. He was also shunned from Repliforce due to his actions. Flare Raptor tried to register for the Maverick Hunters but was denied, so he went on to do Mercenary work. He was mortally wounded during a job when he tried to apprehend the Former Maverick Hunter known as Vile, however he was taken in by Sigma and was repaired with a few minor adjustments. It was the fact that he attacked Vile head on, despite the advantages Vile had over him in battle that made Sigmas decision final on appointing him General. Flare Raptor is honoring his fallen savior by reducing the Central Highway to ash and beginning an attack on Abel City.
Zero: He's a fool to attack the city directly, why is the Sigma Collation making such foolish moves?
Axl: they must be pretty desperate to attempt an attack on the city.
X: Of course, between us, the NGRU and the Anarchist Raiders the Collation has lost all of its leverage points. Last week we took their last artillery brigade, NGRU took out their comm station and the Anarchist Raiders got a hold of all their weapons. Flare Raptor must be trying to cause a diversion.
Zero: Axl, think you can handle it?
Axl: Ha! Of course I can handle it. Flare Raptor here I come.
Axl warps to the wreckage of the Central Highway.
Axl: Axl here, starting the search for Flare Raptor. Hostiles spotted, taking them out.
Axl whips out his pistols and goes in for the attack, he climbs all the wrecked concrete and almost falls into a pit of warped rebar.
Axl: Come on Axl, get it together.
Axl manages to wall jump and get to the other side. Blasting the militia fighters to bits, Axl sees Flare Raptor in the distance, standing on top of a mountain of broken concrete.
Axl: Target sighted, going in.
Axl shoots down a few other reploids before confronting Flare Raptor.
Flare Raptor: Oh look, a Maverick Hunter.
Axl: Flare Raptor, surrender or prepare to battle.
Flare Raptor: You Maverick Hunters, I hate you so much. First you cause me to get thrown out of Repliforce, then you deny my application to join you, of course you still hired me to go after Vile, I lost a lot of good friends in that battle and was almost killed myself. Lord Sigma saved me, now I will honor his name by bringing him your head.
Axl: This one isnt cooperating, taking him out.
Flare Raptor dashes at Axl, slashing rapidly with his red hot claws. Axl dodges and squeezes off a few shots, Flare Raptor falls down. Axl jumps over him and fires a few shots at him while he is down, but Flare Raptor gets up and breaths fire at Axl, who takes a bit of damage. but Axl manages to gain the upper hand and fires a flurry of shots at Flare Raptor, stunning him.
Flare Raptor: Ah, damn you got me.
Axl: How stupid do you think I am?
Flare Raptor: Stupid enough to let your guard down HA!
Flare Raptor slashes Axl across the chest. Knocking him down, Flare Raptor goes in for the kill but is interrupted when a mysterious aura surrounds him.
Flare Raptor: What the?
A strange reploid named Legion floats down from the sky.
Legion: Engage Data Absorption.
Flare Raptor is levitated in the air and Legion sucks out his Data.
Flare Raptor: AHHH!
Axl attempts to shoot Legion, but the shots bounce off.
Legion: Data Absorption completed. Testing morph protocol.
Legion morphs into several shapes of various reploids before turning into Flare Raptor and then back to his original form.
Axl clicks his radio
Axl: Guys I need some back up here.
Legion: Your friends cant help you now.
Legion electrocutes Axl, dropping him to his knees.
X and Zero warp in.
Zero dashes towards Axl, but Legion puts up a force field and stops him. Before grabbing Axl and teleporting away.

I really like how you brought us into the action right away and that we already know it's 22XX, somewhere between X8 & CM.
This Legion guy sounds pretty BA. Definitely looking forward to reading more!!
Posted 07 January 2012 - 11:53 PM
Base Command: X whats going on? We just detected a large flux of energy.
X: Axl's been taken by a strange reploid. Can you run a trace on him?
Base Command: Running Trace, guys you better get back here asap. Don't worry about the highway, we are sending a search and rescue team.
Zero: copy that guys.
X and Zero warp out.
Meanwhile at Sigma Collation headquarters we see a Tall Reploid named Vicardo. Vicardo is the leader of the Sigma Collation. He was once a Maverick Hunter in the Black Ops division and has been around since The Day of Sigma. He has a jealousy fueled hate for Maverick Hunter Zero. Vicardo has done just as much in battle as Zero and X. He helped evacuate civilians from Abel City during the attack on Central Highway in 21xx,He found out where the Counter-Hunters base was located and He planted explosives in the Repliforce's Final Weapon. His final mission before resignation from the Maverick Hunters was when he infiltrated the science reploid Isoc's secret hideout and brought him to justice. Vicardo secretly joined Sigma and helped him orchestrate certain events in the past. Now he has risen as leader of his collation. Vicardo is sitting in his former masters throne, plotting his plans. Vicardo is in denial of the collations crumbling. Vicardo summons his 2 remaining generals to his throne room.
Vicardo: Flare Raptor was destroyed you say?
Bolt Liger: Yes my lord.
Vicardo: Maverick Hunters?
Bolt Liger: No, it was a strange reploid calling himself Legion.
Bolt Liger: Yes my lord.
Vicardo: Hmph, well I want to put you in charge of bringing this "Legion" to me, dead or alive.
Bolt Liger: I wont disappoint you Lord Vicardo.
Bolt Liger teleports away.
Vicardo: As for you Typhoon Crocodile, you have been disappointing me very much lately.
Typhoon Crocodile: Forgive me Lord Vicardo, our fuel resources are dwindling, I can only run one or two warships at a time.
Vicardo: Hmph, such a weak naval captain.
Typhoon Crocodile: Sir, all of our depots have been seized by either the Maverick Hunters or the NGRU. Anything else was blown up by those Anarchist Raiders.
Vicardo: The Anarchist Raiders are of no threat to us, I suspect who their leader may be and I will take him out personally. I grow tired of the sight of you. Your next mission is simple, there is a Militia of Reploids near the village of Silia that has been giving my patrols problems. I want you to flank them with artillery from the warships. Then I want you to sent in some foot soldiers to raid there wares. I hear they have a comm center, that would be a valuable asset to our cause.
Typhoon Crocodile: Sir Yes Sir.
Typhoon Crocodile warps out.
Vicardo gets up and walks deep into the fortress, where we see a group of scientists constructing a new body for none other than Sigma.
Vicardo: How is it coming along?
Scientist: The body will be able to function, however its the brain that we are having trouble with.
Scientists: Well this control chip is a copy of an already corrupted control chip. I could only recover 10% of the data on here. I have my men working around the clock trying to recover more but its hopeless, the best you are going to get is a gibbering wreck.
Vicardo: .... How will the body perform?
Scientist: Well given the resources we have I cant say, I have calculated his stats as being 24000 RP and 20000 RP for power and speed respectively.
Vicardo: What about exertion of the Virus.
Scientist: The brain is so corrupted that he wont know how to spread the Virus willingly.
Vicardo: Hmm I guess I am still the leader of his collation, however I want the body completed and deployed in the event that the maverick hunters or the NRGU arrive here.
Scientist: Yes lord Vicardo.
Vicardo walks away, before turning back and striking the Scientist down with his Halberd.
Vicardo: Let that be a lesson to you all, no matter how hard it may seem I want at least 15% of the data recovered.
Vicardo walks away from the lab, while the other scientists throw the one that was just struck into a trash compacter.
Back at HQ
X and Zero are getting ready to save Axl, they suspect that Legion is associated with either the NRGU or the Anarchist Raiders.
X: So we have a possible lead, but how to we pursue it?
Zero: We have one of the Anarchist Raiders in custody, our men are trying to get him to talk.
X: What about the NRGU?
Zero: Their tightly packed, it would take at least 6-7 days of battling to get near one of their higher ups.
X: Maybe some Mercenaries could help us out.
Signas: Perhaps, but as per new policy the Maverick Hunters do not work with Mercenaries.
X: I didn't mean hiring them, I meant asking questions.
Zero: That might work. Mercs don't answer questions easily especially to Maverick Hunters.
Signas: and it would be against our policy to pay them for information.
X: I know where there is a Mercenary hideout, its a few miles east of the city border.
Zero: That can't be safe.
X: Well it may be our only hope.
Zero: alright X, lets go.
Zero and X warp to the Mercenary Hideout.
X: Well here it is.
Zero: Lets go.
Zero and X walk up to the door, and open it up. A group of mercenaries playing card games, shooting targets and just conversing are seen. The whole crowd turns to the Maverick Hunters, they all prepare to fight.
X: We are not here to arrest any of you.
Mercenary: Ha Ha, damn right. We can make sure of that.
Zero draws his saber.
X: wait, Zero stop.
???: Back off boys, these guys are mine.
Zero: I know that voice.
Zero: Here's a piece of bad news...
Dynamo: Oh that's a nice way to greet a person you haven't seen in long time.
Zero: We don't have time for this nonsense Dynamo, we just need you and all the mercs here to answer a few questions.
Dynamo: Oh me and the boys are more than happy to answer your questions, but I am a man of competition. You and X come out back with me and a close friend of mine.
Zero: No dice Dynamo, we don't have time for your games. We don't even know if you have answers for us.
Dynamo: Oh Zero, this is a den of Mercenaries. Information is as contagious as the Sigma Virus here. All you gotta do is beat me in a fight, I have gotten much stronger since our last meeting.
X: I guess we have no choice.
Zero: Lets get this done.
The three go outside.
Dynamo: Lets go!
Dynamo rushes at Zero first and smashes him in the head with his buster, X manages to dodge an attack by Dynamos sword and knocks him back with a buster shot. X then runs up and does a flash kick on Dynamo, activating his dash while his feet are close to blast Dynamo into the wall. Zero then recovers and draws his Z-Saber, Dynamo fires a few shots from his buster but Zero deflects them with the Z-Saber before hitting him with a rising slash attack.
Dynamo: Ha I missed fights like this!
Dynamo throws his blade at X, who barely dodges the attack, Dynamo the punches the ground causing beams to erupt from the ground. X and Zero take a small amount of damage. but Zero soon recovers and pins Dynamo to the wall with his saber.
Zero: Can we talk now?
Dynamo: Jeez Zero, relax, I didn't ask to fight to the death, just wanted a little spar. I surrender.
X: Let him go Zero.
Zero pulls his Saber out of Dynamos lower mid section.
Dynamo: Ha, you didn't even hit any vital components.
Zero: Want me to continue?
Dynamo: No of course not, you win fair and square. What would you like to know?
Zero: We are looking for a Reploid named Legion, he's a shape-shifter.
X: He feeds on the data of Reploids, He is extremely dangerous.
Dynamo: Hmmm I dont know, but I can ask the boys.
The three go into the bar.
Dynamo: Okay boys, Answer any questions these two ask you!
X: We are currently looking for A certain Reploid, he goes by the name of Legion.
A patron walks out from a card game and approaches the Maverick Hunter.
Patron: I know who you speak of, the name is Harland, have a seat.
Harland walks over to a card table.
Harland: Get out of here ya lousy sell swords.
All the mercenaries leave the table.
Zero: you speak to your own kind like that?
Harland: Ha, yeah right. I am not a mercenary, I am a pilot. I fly over dangerous zones such as NGRU air space, over the Chaos Valley and so forth.
X: What do you know about the Reploid Legion.
Harland: Well I was transporting a couple of guys to take out a psychotic Reploid. they insisted that I cut across the crash site to cut an hour off the trip, I tried to change their minds but they seemed set on cutting over that hellhole.
Flashback to the scene.
Mercenary: This guy has got a 16 million dollar bounty on his head, if you cut across the crash site we will pay you 4 million instead of 2.
Harland: Man, I don't know, there's a Maverick Hunter outpost nearby.
Mercenary: Dont worry, they have other problems to worry about.
Harland: alright I guess.
"So I changed course, but as we flew over the crash site we saw a huge field of energy emanating from the crash site, and a bunch of you guys were getting ready for battle. I decided to land."
Harland and the 4 Mercenaries decide to land the aircraft near the outpost. They exit the vehicle.
Harland: What the heck is going on out there.
Hunter: We don't know, some Maverick Brigade attacked the other sides outpost yesterday and decided to go into the wreckage, we don't know whats triggering the field but we don't assume its any good.
Harland: Did you call it in?
Hunter: Comm tower is out, were gonna need you guys to help us out.
Merc: Um sorry we have a job.
Hunter: We'll give you some weapons from the vault if you just stick around and help us if anything attacks.
Harland: I expect some extra money for waiting around.
Hunter: That aircraft is pretty banged up, we can have a mechanic come fix that free of charge.
Harland: Well my craft does need a backup engine.
"Of course now I wish i would have just flown away, but I got greedy. So I waited for a few hours, and then He came."
something begins exiting from the ruins, a navy and black reploid exits the ruins, levitating across.
Hunter: Freeze, Stop....Levitating!
Legion: We are many, you are all but one being and now you shall become a part of me.
Hunter: OPEN FIRE!
"The hunters all started firing at Legion, all the shots bounced off like rubber bands."
Legion rushes up to the hunters and begins destroying them. He fires a few energy disks that cut the Reploids in two. He also uses some strange energy field that engulfs Reploids and corrodes them, leaving a puddle of rust and oil.
Legion: Data Absorption Protocol, commence
"After he said that a series of beams fired out of his hands, all the reploids screamed and screamed, before becoming lifeless empty shells. I reached for my pistol and ran for my aircraft, I fired a few rounds, but I realized he was busy with the Hunters."
Harland: GET IN THE CRAFT! THERE'S PLENTY OF ROOM!
"The Mercenaries were the only ones not to stand ground, they tried to run into my craft but were blasted, or absorbed. I still see the face of the Mercenary as Legion absorbed him."
Hunter: HARLAND! GO FOR HELP!
Harland: GET IN!
Hunter: THERE'S NO TIME, GO!
"So I flew away, I feel terrible for leaving them when I could have saved them, or stood ground."
Zero: So Legion came out of the wreckage of Eurasia, How could that be? Nothing could possibly survive entering that harsh environment.
X: Strange, thank you Harland.
Harland: Don't worry about it, and if you guys ever need a pilot just look me up, I've been wanting to go legit for awhile.
Zero: We'll get back to you on that.
X and Zero report back to HQ
Signas: So what did you find?
X: We found out where Legion came from, but we still need to know how.
Zero: Apparently someone was able to go into the Eurasia Crash Site.
Zero and X explain what the heard from Harland to Signas.
Signas: I would like Legion alive, I want him studied.
Zero: Perhaps somebody knows the secret, He is too dangerous to capture.
X: Guys we have a problem, the Monorail is under attack, Bolt Liger?
Zero: Bolt Liger, former Maverick Hunter. Im going in.
Zero Warps out
Posted 08 January 2012 - 07:32 PM
Axl: LET ME GO!
NGRU Soldier: Pipe down in there.
NGRU Soldier 2: ha ha, the once mighty Maverick Hunter is now caged for our amusement.
Soldier: Lucky for you we were ordered not to harm you.
NGRU Officer: The Prisoner is requested in Legions room.
the Soldiers knock out Axl and bring him to Legion. Axl awakes an hour later and is tied to a table.
Legion: Hello Axl, you have something I need, I apologize for the use of force. I would never hurt one of my own.
Axl: One of your own?
Legion: That's right brother.
Legion: I am what our creator truly wanted, a perfect shape shifting reploid. You were deemed defective and tossed aside, however father perfected me. I am sad to inform you that our father has passed away, I would have never even dreamed of becoming as powerful as I am, but unlike you I can purge Data from any Reploid, living or dead. I can assume the form of any reploid.
Legion morphs into various Reploids, we see him morph into a lifesaver unit, various Maverick Hunters and other Reploids.
Axl: If I'm defective what could you possibly want from me?
Legion: I need you to infiltrate the Maverick Hunter HQ, If i infiltrate HQ I can absorb all the data on the HQ's mother computer. I would gain access to so much power and knowledge.I would be unstoppable, however that is not the only part you play in my grand plan!
Axl: What the!?!?!
Legion: the founding father of the NGRU resides with in the deepest parts of your Data Banks, Lord Lumine transferred the last shred of himself into you. I only have certain command over the NRGU, but if I can transform into Lumine I will have the NRGU under my thumb.
Axl: You wont get away with this!
Legion: Data Absorption ENGAGE!
A beam surrounds Axl, we see a silhouette of Lumine get absorbed into Legion. Legion then absorbs Axl's data. Seemingly killing him.
Legion: The time has come!
Legion vanishes into the shadows, leaving the empty Axl behind.
Meanwhile we see Vicardo approaching a group of Anarchist Raiders, they are relaxing in the plains on top of a wrecked village. Vicardo turns on his cloaking device and goes in for the kill, decapitates on Raider in a single swipe of his Halberd, the next gets shot by a plasma blast. Vicardo Reappears and grabs the remaining Raider.
Vicardo: Where is your leader?!?
Raider: I dont know what your talking about, we have no leader!
Vicardo: Don't you lie to me!
Suddenly a blast hits the raider from in the distance.
Vicardo: SHOW YOURSELF COWARD!
???: Ha Ha Ha!
Suddenly a large figure slams down on the ground and punches Vicardo.
Vicardo: You! I should have known you would be in charge of a group of Anarchists!
???: HA! Like I would waste my time with a bunch of weak Raiders. I destroy these guys for fun.
Vicardo: You are the biggest shame to the Sigma Collation, there is no place in this world for a psychotic machine like you!
???: Vicardo Vicardo Vicardo, always trying to be so noble, I have a proposition for you.
Vicardo: You are in no position to barter Vile.
Vile: Oh? I beg to differ, I happen to be in my prime, while your pathetic little militia is dwindling. I know you have a strong animosity towards the Maverick Hunter known as Zero, and of course I have spent the last 100 years of my life trying to destroy X, of course Zero has made my goal difficult.
Vicardo puts his Halberd away.
Vicardo: Keep talking....
Posted 03 April 2012 - 07:20 AM
Bolt Liger: Who will be the first to challenge me! I want the best thou can throw at me!
Zero appears behind Bolt Liger.
Zero: Shut up.
Zero cracks Bolt Liger with the hilt of his Z-Saber
Bolt Liger: Ah, Zero I have been waiting for this moment ALL MY LIFE!
Bolt Liger pulls out his Electro Blade, its a sword that looks like a lightning bolt
Zero activates his Z Saber and the two begin to have a sword fight, everytime Bolt Liger strikes the sound of thunder is heard, his metal hairs begin to stand on end, and then he releases a shockwave that paralyzes Zero and starts up the Monorail.
Bolt Liger: Were in for the ride of your life!
Bolt Liger begins to sadistically prod Zero with his sword, slowly cutting and sticking him. Suddenly Zero breaks free and fires a Z-buster shot, which knocks Bolt Liger down.
Zero: Bolt Liger, you have always been a joke! You didnt kill 1 maverick in your whole career with us.
Bolt Liger: I for one, practice nobility! Sure I never killed one, but how many did I bring in!
The Two continue to fight, exchanging sword hits and punches, Zero gains the upper hand and Tackles Bolt Liger off the train, crashing down hard on the track.
Bolt Liger: I dont care if I go with you, you will die Zero!
Zero slashes Bolt Liger in the leg, causing it to be disabled.
Zero: Who are you working for Bolt Liger?
Bolt Liger: I will never tell YOU!
Bolt Liger attempts to slash at Zero with his sword, but Zero cuts his hand off.
Zero: Talk, and you will be spared.
Bolt Liger: Lord Vicardo...there I said it, now please KILL ME!
Zero: Im not going to kill you, I'm taking you into the HQ.
Bolt Liger: NO! NO! I WONT GO ALIVE!
Bolt Liger attempts to get Zero to attack him, but his knocked out.
Zero activates his radio
Zero: I got Bolt Liger alive, bringing him in.
Zero warps out.
Back at HQ
X is seen in the rec hall, he is chatting with a few Hunter Trainees.
Maverick Hunter HQ security guard: Everybody! Axl's back!
the whole group walks back to ask Axl if he's okay, to which he responds yes.
X: Axl, what happened to you? How did you escape?
Axl: I managed to fight my way out of Legions safehouse, some Raiders attacked which gave me the chance to escape.
X:Maybe we should get you to a medic?
Axl: I've run diagnostics, I am fine.
Axl walks away, X has a confused look on his face.
Meanwhile in the Maverick Hunter HQ Interrogation room
Zero: Bolt Liger, wake up
Bolt Liger: Wh..where am I?
Bolt Liger realizes where he is and begins to thrash around.
Zero: Settle down, you aren't going anywhere.
Zero pushes a switch, it intensifies the magnetic hold on Bolt Liger
Zero: Now, where is Vicardo?
Bolt Liger: You are wasting your time.
Zero punches Bolt Liger
Zero: TELL ME!
Back elsewhere, we see Leigon (under his Axl disguise) searching HQ, he comes across a room, the Maverick Hunter Database.
Leigon:Perfect, INITIATE ABSORPTION PROTOCOL!
Leigon begins to absorb the super computer, which contains data on every Maverick Hunter, Maverick and reploid that ever existed. He is gaining all of its knowledge. The computer begins to overheat and causes a fire, and multiple explosions. the Building begins to evacuate.
TO BE CONTINUED!
Posted 18 April 2012 - 04:21 AM
Legion: Reploids of Abel City, why must we live as mere peasants, servants to our human creators. We have proven to them that we do not need them, much like a colony seceding from a monarchy. We must show them, with or without violence that we don't need them or want them anymore. We are many, we are Legion Prime, The Maverick Hunters have run their course, now I will usher in the new era of Reploids! No more Sigma, no more Lumine, I will bring peace if possible, now my Reploid brethren, let us flock to the Eurasia Crash site, where a new utopia will be our home. All Reploids are welcome, New Generation, Old Generation we are all the same. A race thriving for our freedom, no more shall we submit to Humans, and no more shall we be judged by the Maverick Hunters. Any Maverick Hunter that does not flock with me, will be struck down by my wrath. I am your new god!
The Maverick Hunters all look at eachother, a large percent decide to join Legions flock.
Legion: Yes my children, come with me. Leave behind your weapons, I will protect you.
The Maverick Hunters who join Legion begin dropping their weapons. about 35% of them defect to Legion.
Legion: This is your last chance, I will rain down the fires of hell upon thee who does not embrace me.
Signas: Open fire!
The Maverick Hunters open fire on Legion, but a large EMP stops the buster shots, it covers half the city, many of the hunters simply fall down, dead where they stand, X and Zero survive and go to engage this new foe.
Zero attempts to slash Legion with his blade, but it does nothing. Legion grabs Zero and throws him in Mid Air, he flies about 100 feet before hitting the Ground. Legion then grabs X by the head and begins crushing him, but Signas intervenes and punches Legion.
Signas: Get the survivors and go! I will hold him off.
