(This takes place before Gundam Generation)

"Aaaaand time!"

GM.jpg.20e59c4af2ed66b0788fea24b36ce1a3.jpg

A Daughtress went out in a blaze as a blue beam pierced the belly of the machine. The GM Rush had shot down it's final opponent, ending the mission. Normally a Diver would be excited about whatever prize they'd get, but not Ryu Zero. This was his 27th attempt at the mission, hoping to improve his time on the leader board. The scrawny player sped through the menu, noticing a time of 73.4 seconds. Ryu, who was know in GBN's main lobby, slammed his fist on the front table, catching a couple glances from concerned divers. "HOW THE HELL DID HE FINISH IT FASTER THAN THAT?!" He screamed as he looked at the current record holder.

CARTER LEE

ZAKU FORERUNNER

68.9 seconds

"Every. Single. Time." He uttered, opting to go down one of the nearby hallways away from others. "I don't even know the guy!" It was that moment when an idea popped into the diver's head. Once again pulling open his menu, he found the other player. "Hmm. Doesn't look that tough." He immediately got to work, creating a request for Carter. "We'll fight in space. No asteroids, no debris, nothing!" He pressed down the button for the fight offer. "Just my GM vs his Zaku!"

Carter was lounging in the hangar of the main lobby, since it was a place that players could see each others builds, talk shop about upgrades, and lounge around in their cockpit, he was checking the marketplace on one monitor, while the other was fixated on the leaderboards, for speed of course. “Hmm..” he thought to himself “Should i get the pet Elemechu?.. its expensive, though..” he thought. 
 

He saw a score pop up on the leaderboard and raised an eyebrow “73.4..” he said to himself “What slowed him down?.. hmm..” he was thinking pretty intently before he got a ping, and a request for a PVP battle “Huh?- Thats the same guy”.

Carter hovered over the ignore button, before a thought came into his head, fighting him would let him see his set up, and it could help him train his aim too “Alright, guy.. lets do it”. Carter smiled and then accepted the fight, the countdown started.. Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six...

Five, Four, Three, Two, One.

At that moment, Ryu was transported to one of the space levels. The battleground was closer to the Earth than expected, but no debris or other objects were in sight. "This'll work." He thought while staring at the monitor. A blue Zaku floated opposite of the GM, almost waiting for someone to start the battle. "You won't beat me here." The diver uttered as he opened up the comms to the opposing Gunpla. 

"Carter Lee!" Ryu yelled out. "You may have some of the best time records in GBN, but I REALLY want to see how well you battle others." His tone was more mellow, making it seem more like a friendly brawl than petty revenge. The GM pointed it's beam rifle at the blue Gunpla. "I'll prove to you how fast I am!" The rest of the GM's movements were a blur. The mobile suit moved in all sorts of different directions as it fired at the Zaku, hoping to get closer to the machine while its pilot was distracted. With no G-Forces, Ryu could focus entirely on destroying his combatant while the red Gunpla jerked around.

“Damn- he’s really going for it!” Carter tried to track him as best he could, but he figured out quickly just how difficult that would be, he clicked his tongue and raised his shield as he turned his thrusters on “Lemme show you a little something then!” He said over comms, he quickly dropped altitude and started cruising around at high speeds, matching the pace of the red blur, trading pot shots with it as they streaked across space. 
 

Carter looked at the monitors, he wasn’t that good at PVP.. well, at all.. but he had lots of practice when it came to general combat, if he was gonna win this.. then he’d have to be careful!

 

Carter swapped weapons out, he quickly went to a full stop as he drew his bazooka, leading the shot carefully and.. “Fire!” He declared, letting loose a fast flying missile towards his opponent!

The bazooka's missile shot out faster than Ryu had expected, not giving him much time to take it out. Luckily, the GM had more than just it's beam rifle. As he fired the GM's shoulder cannons, the destroyed missiles blast sent Ryu flying away. "Come on, get steady!" He yelled while the red gunpla tumbled through the depths of the Earth Sphere. Pulling forward on all of his engines, the diver attempted to regain his balance, opting to put away his beam rifle on the waist instead of continued fire. 

Many of the boosters pushed him around, but he soon got in position to strike. "Alright then. Let's get personal!" The GM blasted back to the Zaku, pulling out one of the two beam sabers inside of it's shield. Ryu ignited the pink sword, striking diagonally down at his blue foe. "Just try and dodge this!"

Carter clicked his tongue as the rocket he shot got taken down “Good reflexes, he’s good” He said to himself, though he wasn’t idly speaking.. he was preparing his next strike, stowing away the bazooka as he stayed within range of his tumbling opponent, he wanted to capitalize; he started to aim his arm mounted vulcan guns, but..

 

”He righted himself?- that quickly?!” He was surprised, he didn’t know someone could do that in such a manner, especially in PVP. 


He saw his opponent start dashing at him, he was new to PVP but.. he wasn’t gonna run off “I’ll accept that challenge head on!” He said, drawing his heat sword and dashing to meet his opponent! “Take this!” He swung diagonally upwards, the two machines met close up as sparks flew off the clashing weaponry!

 

A Blue Zaku, and a Red GM.. they were like two ace pilots meeting in the middle of the One Year War.

The speed of the two Diver's and their Gunpla was nothing to scoff at. As the OYW machines connected their blades, Ryu intended to fire his shoulder cannons once again, but a problem arose. "Damn! The angle!" He yelled while attempted to point the extra weapons. He'd be firing at nothing, an undamaged Zaku head being the only thing between the two shots.

"Come on then! Let's see how you handle this speed!" WIth the flick of the GM's wrist, Ryu's second beam saber ignited. The heat sword was winning, causing the diver to create an X-shape with the pink blades in order to defend himself. However, that wasn't his speedy trick...

Ryu pushed hard on both joysticks of the machine, bringing him and Carter farther from the Earth Sphere. With the assault being commenced, Ryu hoped that the heat blade would wear out due to pressure.

Carter clicked his tongue and tried to think fast, after he pulled the second beam saber he knew that his heat blade was gonna lose out, though.. that wasn't his only melee weapon! Carter let himself get pushed back away from earth, before suddenly swinging his heat blade up and away, letting go of it completely “Let’s scrap!” He shouted as one of the Zaku’s shoulder spikes popped off, he grabbed onto it like a knuckle duster and threw a huge uppercut to his opponents torso. 

He glanced at the monitors to the side, it would be bad if he stayed in close.. but those shoulder cannons would be equally annoying to deal with, he grit his teeth and bit the bullet. Connect or not.. after that punch, he was gonna boost backwards to gain some distance!

"Ooo-ah..." Ryu's mobile suit was no G Gundam, but it really seemed like he felt that uppercut. The spike hit the Torso HARD, sending the entire machine away from the blue Zaku. "Man, gotta get my bearings together." The Diver uttered, shaking his head as he grasped the controls. Looking at each of the monitors, he couldn't find his beam saber, likely lost somewhere in the far reaches of the map. Watching the Zaku attempt to gain some distance, he waited for his time to strike.

"Now!" Pulling out the beam rifle off the Gunpla's waist, he erratically fired it, along with the two shoulder cannons. "Let's add the vulcans too. Why not?" Pink beams and bullets blasted to the Zeon machine, hoping to make their mark.

Carter congratulated himself for the slick escape, not realizing he had just put himself in even more danger, he returned the shoulder spike back onto his.. shoulder, and turned around, ready to fire on his enemy- But what met him instead was a barrage of beams, bullets, and missiles “Ah man!” He raised his shield to block it but got sent flying back, the damage it caused broke the shield, but luckily the arm mounted Vulcan guns were intact. 
 

“Helluva barrage..” he said, floating there, he decided to draw his machine gun and start firing back while moving erratically, his machine moved in complex patterns, sudden diagonals, quick turns, even doubling back before moving forward suddenly to vary the times which his shots would land

“Ha! This the best you’ve got?!” Ryu yelled as he began to match the patterns, but flaws started to arise, calling for drastic measures. “That’s it! It’s time for this charade to end.” The red GM tossed aside its shield as Ryu fires every thruster on the unit. The Federation Gunpla blasted in the general direction of the enemy Zaku, pulling out both of its beam sabers.

”Come on Carter! I’ll-“ BOOM! The right side of his monitor began to blare red. “What?” The GM’s right leg had blown off at the knee, sending it flying behind him. At that moment, the left arm completely shattered under the intense pressure. “Oh please no.” By the time he had made it too the blue mobile suit, his Gunpla was only a head and torso, now slowly floating towards the Zaku. “Aw man...”

Carter grabbed his shoulder spike once more and was preparing to catch his opponent with another strike, “Ora!-“ though, he stopped and held himself back as he saw his opponents Gunpla fall apart at the joints, when he saw the torso and head float over.. he didn’t know how to react.. for a bit. 
Carter put the shoulder spike away and floated over to his opponent, catching him “Whoa- uhh.. are you okay?” He asked over comms

Ryu was shocked by the other Diver's actions. "Oh. I'm honestly shocked you didn't go for the kill." He stated as the GM was held in the Zaku's arms. "Honestly, I've been having issues with the thrusters on my unit." He looked around as the warnings kept blaring. "I think it has something to do with the build quality." Ryu thought about the other speedrunner, realizing that he'd have good advice. "I'd say you've won this battle, but could you actually give me some tips on fixing that?"

“It wouldn’t feel right to have gone for the kill in this situation..” Carter said, he looked kinda confused when he was suddenly asked for advice, he rubbed his chin and thought about it “Well.. its most likely loose joints right? Depending on the kit you use.. Take some clear or black nail varnish and coat the polycaps or joint with them, it should thicken it up so that when you put it back in the socket itll be a better fit” Carter thought that should do it, since thats what he used before

"Huh. I guess I should try that!" The two floated in the middle of the battlefield, but no battle was currently being held...

...

The GM Rush blasted forward as it stabbed the last blue Zeon unit. The mobile suit crashed to the ground, creating dust all around him. "And time!" Ryu yelled out as the GM ignited its thrusters, now no longer flawed thanks to his new friend. Being brought back to the main lobby, the diver checked the score of the mission.

RYU ZERO

GM RUSH

58.6 seconds

Ryu didn't jump for joy or freak out. He simply smiled, knowing that he got that score with the help of Carter.

FIN

      “Again!” Her voice stern but sincere. “You’ll never be able to hit me with that attitude.” The boy breathed in ragged gasps. He was tired, tried of attacking, and tired of constantly being belittled by that witch of a woman. 
      Two mobile suits stood face each other on a scenic plateau. Around them was a vast desert with monumental landmarks and a vast emptiness that seemed to lead on to the edge of the horizon. The boy, Casval Creed was using a gold colored variant of the Gundam Astray Red Frame with its’ iconic katana held with both hands. Opposite of the samurai-esque suit was the Mercurius from Gundam Wing with its deflectors swirling around the suit confidently, the arms of Sayla Creed’s Gunpla crossed in front in supreme confidence. 
      “I’ll get you this time!” He roared as he brought his katana down towards the taunting red mobile suit. Of course his attack didn’t hit, it never did. Always striking and never hitting, that was the story of his life. Indeed the katana blade slowed down as if hitting a web and remained poised in midair, tendrils of electricity licking around the weapon as it remained frozen midair. The red frame variant pulled its’ sword out wide to slide off the invisible field protecting the Mercurius. Casval Creed cried out in disgusting, stomping away from his sister Sayla. “I don’t believe you…” he started as he slowly brought the Gunpla around to face his sister. “Every time I hit your shield my sword just bounces off!”
      The Mercurius was already shaking its’ head as Sayla, no Artesia the diver, started to chastise, “you underestimate your weapon. Father used to use that mobile suit all the time you know? I’ve seen-“
      “Yes! Yes! I’ve seen his battles too you know!” Casval cut back angrily. Still the Mercurius was shaking its’ head, “so you’ve seen him do the very thing you say is impossible? You disappoint me for being a seed fanboy and not understanding the potential of Gerbera Straight!” Sayla’s tone seemed branched from vast patience with her younger brother and it wasn’t the first time he was glad for her calm demeanor. She continued as if reading his silence as a prompt to continue. “Father used that very sword against a similar unit as mine to cut through the shield. Gerbera Straight can deflect energy, and not just beam shots. Just like a real katana it all depends on how you angle that blade for your cut.” She motioned for the sword from her brother and he offered the weapon. In short order she was moving the weapon through a familiar routine. Near the end of her movement she called her shield deflectors in front the gold colored red frame and effortlessly she smashed the blade down through the force field. To Casval’s credit he was able to quick step behind himself in time to dodge the attack. 
      Artesia held the tip of the sword aimed at the Astray’s neck for a long while. “See?” She asked rather confidently. Casval was still frustrated from all his failures but he held back any snarky responses and gulped down his pride before admitting. “Th-thank you sis…” Artesia chuckled and stood the Mercurius up straight. “I think that’s enough training for not little bro! How about we log off to today?” Casval let out a sigh and agreed after a moment, “sure... same time tomorrow?” 
      “Sure!”
      —-
      The night air was cool, as the chill wind gently floated through the air. Casval stood in the large backyard of their house, bokken in hand. The teen swung the piece of wood up and down over his head in a precise motion. Beads of sweat dripped off his head as he continued the routine repeatedly. With each strike she shuffled forward in his steps, each strike bringing his footing along with the mock attacks. He would reach the end of the grassy area only to turn on his heel and repeat the process to the opposite end of the lawn. The Creed complex was large, located outside of Tokyo in the country side. The house itself was a modern affair with a large back garden fenced in to the estate. 
      Casval cried out with his attacks, trying to derive power from each swing of the bokken. By this point in his exercise he was getting exhausted but still his sister’s words echoed in his head about holding the weapon right. While the real world may have not been GBN he figured some principles of the concept could carry through. He reached the end of the lawn once more and collapsed on his rump and leaned back on his hands to stare up at the cloudy night sky. 
      “I was once like you… of course I didn’t have a nice private backyard to practice in.” Casval arched an eye brow and turned back to see his father, Marco Creed approach him from behind. “Oh? Do you still have the moves?” Casval couldn’t help but taunt as he tossed the wooden sword at his father. Marco didn’t miss a beat as he caught the blade mid air by the handle and quickly presented it on guard and properly swung the blade down overhead much like Casval had been doing just a few moments before. His old man flashed him a toothy grin and presented the blade back humbly to his son, “some people might say that I do.” Marco chided as he sat down next to his boy. “Sayla told me you were using my old red frame to practice in GBN today. Did you like it?’ 
      Casval was already grinning and nodded his head, “yeah! I mean its’ hardly a red frame the way you have it colored but it was a lot of fun to use!” Marco smiled as he gazed up at the clouds then looked back down at his son, “well in that case how about you fix it up right?’ The man reached into a pocket of the jacket he wore and produced the familiar Gunpla from before. “I want you to have it. Not just to take it, I want you to tune it up, give it your own flavor to it if you will?” 
      The teen hesitantly reached out for the model, of course he had used it before but now it suddenly seemed so much different to him. “You want me to rebuilt it?” Marco was nodding and smiling at his clever son, “yes. I think it’s a fine machine to start off with. I’m curious to see what you’ll do with it.” 
      Casval’s eyes dropped down to the figurine in his hands now and studied the real grade red frame which had its red traded for a shade of gold. Slowly the boy began nodding more to himself than his father, “I’ll do it… I’ll make you proud!” Marco was already chuckling at the boys response however, “you already have son!”
      —-
      The familiar cross armed pose of the Mercurius wasn’t so daunting this time around as Casval swung in at his sister. The mobile suit stepped back with each incoming attack but each attack was still foiled by the floating defenders. “You would think with all your practice you would know how to do it now?” Artesia taunted as her brother roared out another attack. The blade did seem to dig in a little deeper against the force field this time around and Sayla did raise her eyebrow at that. “C’mon! You think the random divers are going to be as forgiving as me? They’ll eat you alive! And you call yourself a Creed?” 
      Casval flared his nostrils at her remark and he paused as he raised the blade over his head. He angled his hands over the controls and in turn shifted his grip ever so slightly on the weapon. He sucked in his breath and before striking started to let out a roar from his belly, the blade trailing down in a swift motion. Just like that, Gerbera Straight sliced through the force field, just like that the katana arced in towards the Mercurius head, just like that Artesia raised up her shield saber, igniting the blade just in time to parry the attack. 
      They remained poised in that position for along while, Casval catching his breath as he realized he made his sister draw her weapon finally. There was finally a chuckle emanated from the opposing red mobile suit, “well well… took you long enough, Char… from now own we can start the real training brother. Are you ready to start living up to your name at last?” 
      A grin spread on Casval’s lips and he nodded, “I’m ready sis!” The Mercurius batted away the Katana and the floating energy shield replaced in front of Sayla, “again!” She commanded.

      Biography
      Full name: Casval Creed
      Aliases: Char
      Age: 15
      Sex: Male
      Height: 5’5”
      Weight: 120
      Eyes: Brown 
      Hair: Black (white in game)
      Skin: fair 
      Handiness: right 
      Personality
      Fanboy is just one way to describe Casval. He’s excited about Gundam and is a very friendly kid. He’s particularly fond of his namesake and often tries to emulate the positive characteristics of idol. He will act chivalrous and noble as much as he can and often strives for those ideals as well. His hearty nature can sometimes lead him to trouble but he seems to have a knack for getting out of situations usually. He’s very fond of his family and is usually appreciative to have his sister around. 
      Strengths and weaknesses
      Pedigree – at a young age Casval was exposed to Gundam and Gunpla. His father taught him about GBN and Gunpla battle and distill a sense of fondness for the hobby that drove Casval to always strive for greater heights, to live up to his father’s expectations. He has access to many of his father’s personal resources. 
      Novice - he’s still getting used to the controls and interfaces of GBN. He’s more likely to make social mistakes online as well. 
      Seed Fan Boy – Gundam seed is his favorite show and he will often pause to reflect on the mecha or memorabilia from that show.
      Fear of failure – he wants to live up to his father’s name and reputation and hopes to surpass it sometime in the future even. 
      Bold/brash – because of who he is he is always willing to make dramatic gestures or take the difficult path when doing tasks. 

      Appearance: 

      Small and slender, he still has to mature physically. At times he still feels awkward. 
      History:  
      Casval is the youngest of the Creed family. Both his parents are avid fans of the Gundam franchise so it was only natural for his name to be after one of the more iconic characters. Along with his sister he was indoctrinated at a young age to enjoy Gundam. Ironically it wasn’t until he was older that his father even suggested he build Gunpla as well. Naturally because of his namesake he grew to like most Gundam villains and especially enjoyed their mobile suits. 
      It was only recently that he was invited to start playing with his older sister Sayla. Together she’s been slowly showing him the ropes as he’s become more and more intrigued by the mysterious world of GBN.

      It was an abnormally dark night in the sky as the moonlight barely touched the Lincoln household. One of the rooms caught the slight light peeking through the curtains, pointing down at a broken plastic figure. It was the Local Type, irreparably damaged from its battle with the wall. It completely missed its right arm, along with having no V-Fin, looking rather miserable laying on the desk near a newly opened box.
      Wade didn’t know why they’d bought it for him for his birthday. They normally weren’t too fond of him playing GBN all the time and the playing at home would only make that worse, but people’s opinions change all the time. After all, he thought he’d lost interest in the game after the last mission, but addiction can take control of you easily. The brand new headset and hardware for GBN was already set up, the expensive equipment how connected to his computer, just waiting to be used. The teen laid wide awake in bed, staring at nothing on the ceiling. “I just wanna sleep.” He thought, now reminded of how tiring school was this day.
      He knew it was another school day tomorrow. He knew he had to get some rest. He knew that he couldn’t spend all of his time playing a virtual game without feeling the consequences to his body and mind. He knew that he didn’t care.
      Wade practically jumped out of his bed, his blanket flying forward as it hit the floor. This dumb decision worried Wade, hoping he didn’t wake his parents. “You know what? I’m fifteen. I can play whenever I want!” This act of rebellion was met with the soon to be Diver grabbing his broken Gunpla and placing it on the scanning pad.
      The Local type barely stood on the device, one of its leg joints warped. There was another model completely encased in darkness, but even the sleep deprived teen knew he couldn’t use it yet. Wade slid the new visor over his head as the Local Type stared at him through its own visor. The trip into the game was surprisingly quick for a home device, allowing Wade to get right to business.
      The Diver hadn’t talked with the others since his abrupt exit. He hadn’t even been to the oil rig, but he still wanted to hide himself. He wore a white Earth Federation normal suit along with the same mask Vidar had used. It wasn’t nice looking, but it kept him conspicuous during this last few forays into GBN. Wade mostly just walked around inside of his current location, one of the space colony biomes, only leaving to do various missions pertaining to the main game world, like fetch quests.
      He swore against doing story or any type of missions that would take him to a place where he’d hurt NPDs, knowing he wasn’t ready or that yet. Wade waltzed to a nearby bench as he sat to watch other Divers, a common hobby for him now. He noticed people had gotten quite creative with the anthropomorphic animal divers, seeing what looked to be an octopus man. He was interested in changing the look of his avatar, but part of him wondered if it was for the best to leave Fleurs behind and start anew, not realizing that he’d done the same thing by creating the Diver Force. 
      His train of thought immediately turned to the hooded Diver now sitting next to him. “Geez. Talk about edgy.” Wade was able to stare through the mask without anyone noticing. He could barely make out a face under the black hood as he slouched forward. The other Diver immediately turned to look directly at the Fleurs leader. “Uh oh.” Strangely, only his mouth could now be seen, with a deep black shadow hiding whatever was above it. Freaked out, the teen stood up and began to walk away, but stopped in his tracks once the other Diver spoke. 
      “Wade Lincoln.” Hearing that name caused the masked Diver to shudder. “He… knows my last name.” The cloaked figure arose, terrifying Wade as he began to get closer to him. “Wade Lincoln… Fleurs De Noblesse is in shambles…” A pale white hand fell through the robes, reaching up to grab the mask Wade felt was necessary. The Diver pulled back, but lost his footing as his rear hit the ground. He watched as Vidar’s mask dropped next to him, the hand returning to its hiding spot. “Wade Lincoln. Leader of Fleurs De Noblesse. Battle me!” 
      ...

      The two Gunpla sped around in space near the colony, a battle which was far from close. The real damage on top of the virtual damage made the Local Type look like a garbled mess as it fired the Wing Zero’s beam rifle. Completely missing the red and black mobile suit, the cloaked figure slashed down through the machine’s remaining arm, giving Wade no way to fight back, due to the bent gatling guns.

      “Fucanglong pities you.” Wade’s opponent pressed the tip of the orange blade against the neck of the Local Type, signaling the end of the battle. Wade didn’t move an inch as he saw the defeat screen, still thinking about the mysterious man knowing his identity. The two machines floated, barely moving as the Fucanglong’s pilot began to speak.
      “Some leader you are… If you’re no challenge, then I should’ve went for your friend a long time ago.” Wade’s eyes widened, realizing this guy was not just an edgelord. “He’s going after Aker?” From Icarus’ reaction, the Diver knew his winning enemy was too late, but he still didn’t want to reveal that. The pain came out with his voice. “Whoever you are, you won’t be able to hurt him. I got something much better than this!” 
      The Fucanglong’s pilot smirked, pulling his joysticks away from the Local Type. “Prove it.” The red Gunpla flew away as Wade noticed an invitation. Opening it, the Diver’s mood immediately changed. “This… is our opportunity.” There was still a sense of dread from the Diver. If Aker was truly gone, then it’d likely be much more difficult, but the rewards for Fleurs was extravagant. “Wait! Tomorrow?!”

      A day had passed with Wade logging into GBN once again. This time, he was decked out with the Fleurs formal gear, hat and cape flowing through the fake wind. He’d arrived early to the main lobby, hoping to contact his teammates in time. “Please be there Aker. I don’t care how, just… please…” He thought as he sent the message of the location and event to the two, emphasizing that they needed to wear their full gear for this event. 
      It was an annoying wait on the catapult for the Fleurs leader. A Genoace had gotten stuck on the foot clamps, Haro Loader’s rolling around the unit to pry it off. Wade took the time to look through his cockpit, a dead ringer for his Gunpla’s and much better than the Local Type’s. “I can see everything.” He uttered while staring. While he wasn’t too sure who they’d actually be up against, the fact that this mobile suit was so different give him hope he could take out anything in his way. Eventually, the catapult was fixed, Wade calling out his mobile suit’s name.
       
      NU GUNDAM ORIGIN, LAUNCHING!!!

      The Gunpla burst through the sky at a breakneck pace, mostly due to its “secret” build far different from previous models Wade used. Nevertheless, he easily saw what he was looking for. A few battleships floated above a massive battling area. About half of it was filled with mostly intact gray buildings, while the other half was forestry, with tree standing tall just waiting to be knocked down by a stray beam.
      The Nu Gundam touched down near the audience, surprising housing a few hundred people in the seats. “Wow!” Wade exclaimed in awe. While he’d seen much larger, having that many people, along with whoever was in those ships, amazed the Fleurs leader. The Gunpla took a knee as Wade got out of the machine, noticing a doppelganger of Stalker approaching him. “You must be the leader of Fleurs! I’m Sneaker.” Wade realized this man would be announcing their fight as he shook his hand. “You’re the first one here!” Wade was shocked to hear that, assuming the other teams would be there before him. Nevertheless, he awaited his comrades, if they even showed up.

      Year 20XX. People around the world have taken to building and customizing their very own Gunpla (Gundam Plastic Models) as the world's #1 hobby. In Gunpla Battle Nexus Online, a Virtual Reality MMORPG which is often touted as ''the next-generation hobby attraction'', users from all around the world turn into Mobile Suit pilots (also known as Divers) by scanning their Gunpla and uploading their data to the game, allowing them to pilot their dream machine.
      As if the content added by the game's administrators wasn't enough, they notice a wealth of very well made custom campaigns, individual missions and machines, made by experienced Divers with a knack for making their own original content. To acknowledge the newly formed modding community, they prepare Update 1.8, also known as the Community Update, where popular stages and campaigns can be submitted for the administrators' Endorsement, bestowing upon them the ability of giving clear rewards to the Divers who complete them, and where popular Gunpla builds can now be encountered as rare NPDs (Non-Player Divers), with either the personality of their Creator, or that of an existing Gundam character...
      However, despite being nearly complete, Update 1.8 hasn't been actually released to the public, and is now on one of the final stages: playtesting and polishing. This is the story of a group of beta testers from all over the country, which team up to tackle one of the most ambitious campaigns bundled with the update...

      Gunpla Sheet
      To help everyone understand the machines each other made, and to establish what they can and cannot do, players MUST reply to this post with their own sheet to play. One sheet will be made per machine. For making sheets for new machines or upgrades to previous Gunpla, edit your original post and add the new sheet under that of your previous machine.
      IMPORTANT: Players can give their Gunpla a secret system of any kind, but they must add "REDACTED" in all-caps under "Special Abilities/Features", and run their idea by the Game Master for approval.

      [Diver]'s Gunpla Collection
      #1 - [Unit Name]
      [Images, if any]
      Base Unit:
      Operator (Diver Name):
      Detail the parts and modifications used by your mech by the following sections. Please remember that each perk will have a draw back for each bonus it offers. The examples given are merely examples and anything not listed may be added so long as it can be rationalized. If another player has already added a non-listed element you want to use, try to use that same rationalization for said element rather than making your own.
      Structural Defense: i.e
      Phase Shift Armor - exceptional resistance to physical damage, at the cost of power consumption per hit. 
      Gundanium Alloy - well balanced endurance, at the cost of weighing down the unit.
      Nano Filament/Anti-Beam Coating - exceptional resistance to beam weaponry at the cost of being frail to physical damage. 
      Conventional Materials - offers lighter armor weight for greater mobility, with no added benefit.
      Special System: i.e. 
      ZERO System - offers exceptional target acquisition at the cost of zoning out the rest of the battlefield.
      Funnel System - offers a devastating attack system at the cost of being burdensome.
      Trans-Am - offers exceptional mobility at the cost of high power consumption.
      Melee Weapons: i.e.
      Beam Saber - standard mobile suit weapon, offers exceptional cutting power at the cost of power consumption; small enough for multiple housings on the unit. 
      Anti-Ship Sword/GN Sword - a cumbersome and slow weapon with exceptional cutting power, likely only one on the unit.
      Heat Rod - a whip-type weapon that heats up to deal damage, likely only one on the unit. Greater reach than most melee weapons, bordering on ranged, but less precise and damaging than heat sabers and hawks.
      Projectile Weapons: i.e. 
      Beam Rifle - Can deal high energy damage at the cost of power consumption and rate of fire.
      Machine Gun - can deal physical damage with limited ammo capacity but high rate of fire.
      Bazooka - can deal high damage at the expense of very limited ammo.
      Buster Rifle - high energy weapon with high power draw and limited shots; can deal massive damage.
      Shield: i.e. 
      Physical Shield - reliable and heavy.
      Energy Shield - light weight but draws energy to function.
      Missile Shield - weaponised shield with limited ammunition and low protective value.
      Power System: i.e. 
      Battery Pack - offers a light weight power solution for greater mobility but limited supply.
      Nuclear Plant - offers unparalleled power at the cost of expense and environmental danger if damaged. 
      Solar Furnace - offers exceptional energy and propulsion (including Trans-Am) at the cost of being proprietary (limits backpack options) and expensive.
      Special Abilities/Features: i.e. transformable, SD, secret, etc.
