Valkyria Chronicles 4 officially announced alongside story trailer. Coming to PS4, XBOX ONE, and Switch, which is where I’ll be getting it. Looks pretty cool, the trailer makes it seem very dramatic.

The newest quest is always better than the older ones. So the Caster 40AP quest is best. I've been running it with level 40 Ushiwakamaru and Medusa with a support lesbian pirate and it's been feasible. Make sure to grab a support that has the Poster Girl CE since that gives a bonus of the gold drop for every pile you get! Equip any you have while you're at it, if you're lucky enough to have any copies.

Surprise. Thanksgiving is coming, with a lot of freebies and a guaranteed 5* gacha. Not sure if it’s replacing the New Years stuff, since it seems to be all the same as what would have been there... aside from Mordred and Jack not being part of it... Well, I’ll still roll on it, but if there isn’t one on New Years It’ll be a bummer; was counting on that being my final chance for a certain loli if Christmas doesn’t pull through. Still, we’ll be getting a good amount of cool stuff anyway, so I won’t complain~

I really like this Caster 40AP quest so far! Ushi and Medusa are having a great time. Completed it twice, got a rare material drop both times, as well as a gold monument the first time, and finally got a Guda-o drop on the second~ Plus the amount of items it gives is awesome; should be able to get everything I need to get Hans’ final ascension well before the event ends! Maybe pick up a few demon hearts while I’m at it~

From what I know Scathach should be coming pretty soon, alongside Fragments of 2030. That banner should be the next thing that happens, though I don’t think there will be any event to go with it- which is fine by me, could use a bit of time to relax and farm some Mana Prisms and the like~

How’s the event going for everyone else? Are you as Nobu as Elvis is?

A warm bed, a safe place to rest, and a bright morning to wake for. These weren't fortunes Matthew always found himself with, so he's grateful for them, even under these circumstances. Still yet, he has little desire to hold things up or make the rest search him out; contrary to logic, the best way to keep himself from drawing attention is to make his presence known.

As such, he's one of the first to make his way to their newest meeting place, and he notices the lack of a certain girl just as the others do. He stops in the doorway as they enter the room, sighing at the redheaded young woman's body. It doesn't seem that she suffered, at least. He didn't know her, and never would, now, and, honestly, she'd given off the impression of someone he wouldn't much get along with. Still, he can't help wondering; did she have a family? Siblings? A lover? People who would miss her, that would cry when she never makes it home...

He pushes away such thoughts. He'll end up the same way, just another body stomped underfoot in this strange battleground they're in, unless he pulls himself together and acts the part of the carefree spy others know him as. This is war, people die, and you don't get to stop and mourn for those who've been lost until the battle's over.

Once some time has passed, allowing people to process the proceedings, he does something contrary to his nature, and calls for some attention towards him. "Ahem... I'm here to report on what I discovered last night. It's nothing spectacular, I don't think, but it could help. Basically, I'm a thief, a spy, and I'm good at getting things that don't belong to me, as well as learning information others might keep hidden. I'm sure you get the idea."

He reaches into a concealed compartment of his clothing, pulling loose a Thoron tome. "Well, I visited Robin last night, and took this. Studying it, it helped me learn... certain things. I can say with confidence that this strategist, while not as familiar to me as Mark, is still someone who is almost certainly on the side of the Divine Dragons, and not the Fell. From what I understand, there could be reasons to question this, based on... personal factors. Yes, I do hear things, rumors and the like. Still, that's why I chose the target I did, and there's likely nothing to fear here."

He shrugs lightly, slipping the tome back to the woman. "Anyway, I won't say exactly what I learned, or what sort of ability I have exactly. It's not quite what you might be expecting. Hope this doesn't backfire and get me killed... should know better than to try and be the heroic sort." He pauses, before glancing at the body in the bed, one last time. "Well, I'm willing to risk it if we might end up losing less people this way. I certainly know what it feels like." His words spoken, the thief slips a bit further from the limelight, concealing himself in the comfort of what shadows he can find.

Grigs happily begins digging into his meal, completely oblivious to any protests or funny looks being cast his way. "This is good," he announces, wearing a big, goofy grin.

Those are the only words he feels the need to share, merely listening to the stories his allies tell, mostly audible over the sound of his teeth mashing together.

After a moment, that Jewel lady speaks his name, and he looks over, curiously. Archery? Shot? Hmm... something about beer? No, this context is more about bows and stuff, he feels. He never really liked that type of weapon much, which makes sense, since he never really liked any kind of weapon much- they don't really like him either, though- and he prefers an up-close sort of brawl. Plus, the last time he met with arrows, he died. Still, he's glad she's good with something! She probably won't die too easily, though she might not make for a good sparring partner. Maybe he'll challenge her to an eating contest instead (or just eat her food for her).

He realizes he's been staring absentmindedly for a bit, and blinks, before giving her a large 'thumbs up' gesture, before turning back to his food. He wonders if he should go and break that guy out after all, now that she mentions it. Sushi would probably join in, too, and it could be a fun afternoon...

His attention is drawn away by Thumbs, as the scholar-y guy finishes his version of the tale. Grigs tilts his head, remembering the way he'd revealed his name, like a big secret. It was kinda funny; as far as Grigs' concerned, what you're called doesn't matter as much what you do, anyway, and he remembers Thumbs'd been pretty handy back at that dungeon place. Plus, he'd been trying to teach him some smart people stuff, which... while not going terribly well... was awful kind of him. Grigs was still trying to convince him to let him teach 'im about fighting and building muscles, in exchange, but he wasn't quite up for it.

The time Grigs'd burst into his room in the middle of the night, for surprise training, had raised several objections. Still, it'd been funny when the guy'd thrown a pillow at him as a form of defense. It's a shame Grigs' reflexes had kicked in, and his leg had also kicked in, and that's how the pillow turned into feathers- but that's neither here nor there. The guy finishes speaking, and Elfie adds on about not killing Weazil for no reason, something Grigs can get behind. He sets his plate down, empty. "Seconds please! And no killing friendly goblin hoard." Grigs would have to punch a lot of people, and, besides, who knows how many armies he'd need to beat up to bring that many goblins back to life!

...not that he objects, but, he likes more variety in his opponents.

Matthew tries his best to avoid any noticable reaction, as the loud, shrill voice calls his name.

So she noticed me all the way over here. Should've gone to the other side of the island...

With a sigh, he hops down from his vantage point, landing closer to the cleric... but not too close. He doesn't need her clinging to him, nor does he feel like being dragged around all day. Again.

Sticking a finger in his ear, the thief looks pointedly away. "See, I would do that, if I had the time, but I'm in the middle of very important work, so I'm afraid I'd end up letting you down. And that'd be a travesty... ahem. However, THIS fine gentleman is far more intelligent and sophisticated than I am- surely he's the sort who wouldn't bring any shame when seen with a noble young maiden such as yourself!"

With a sly grin, he slips behind Erk, gently shoving the poor young mage in Serra's direction. "Isn't that right, Erk? I know you'd love another opportunity to spend some quality time with that she-devil- I mean, that beautiful woman, right?"

Before the purple-haired youth can respond, or shoot him with a lightning bolt, Matthew throws down a capsule that explodes into smoke, darting behind a tree and praying to whatever gods might be listening that she hadn't noticed his hiding place.

Matthew sits atop a nearby hill, staring out at the water. “Divine. Fell. Dragons. Gods.”

“How boring.”

Hopping to his feet, the thief flicks his blade free from its sheath, staring at the glistening steel with one eye. His other trails the fourteen other figures he’d been met with upon waking. “Well, I’ve never been one for combat anyway,” he sighs, twirling the blade through the air letting it slam back into its resting place.

For a long, almost serene moment, he stands in place, listening to the faint echo of the words that had reached his heart and mind. He speaks, a single word, etched in sadness- almost too quiet to be heard.

“Leila...”

The thief lids his eyes. “I know things are going to get messy. It’s how these debacles always end up. Still, for House Ostia, Lord Hector... and for you, my love. I’ll see it through to the end.”

Hmm. That’ll be very interesting. I’ll look forward to using my metagame knowledge of whichever character I get, to act entirely different to what people expect~

What do you mean I’m just a paper bag?!

Anatoly Petrov closes his eyes, listening to the cascade of voices as each of his friends and allies state their opinion.

Eli, Yuki, Phillip, Steiner, Takumi, Azami; his fellow Pilots.

Rabbit, Gerard, Darius, Sachiko.

Everyone's here.

They each offer their insight, and, on the surface, the plan they build together has no flaws. This doesn't make it perfect, but perhaps it carries as much chance of success as they can possibly create. He smiles, calmly. Each of them gives him much to be proud of- all of his friends, they've grown and learned so much, in such a short amount of time. Not because they'd been forced to figure it out or die where they stood, but because they all had each other to fight alongside, slowly molding from a ragtag group of solitary Eva to a team so effective even the Gods would tremble to stand before them.

He knows he isn't as strong as they are, but he's going to fight- to stand beside them and push them that last little bit across the goalline, if at all possible. Knowing these intentions to be true and worthwhile, he doesn't need to think on Steiner's question.

"I'll deploy ready to engage directly," he states, feeling the familiar sensation of taking in LCL with each word. It might be better to begin combat further away, easier to remove himself from the line of danger- but he has no reason to do that. He trusts the others, trusts Idumea, implicitly, and they're going to get through this, alive, and well, like they always have. Besides, if he can soak up a few hits that might hurt one of his friends, that's all the better.

Something in the deepest part of his brain says that something isn't right. He isn't thinking straight, or comprehending properly. The Russian just turns away from it, staring absently into the screen, taking in the destruction awaiting them. Everything will be fine, he affirms himself. We just need to win.

"You will need a bit more than a handful of people to break a mage out of templar custody." The Tiefling regards Grigs, who, for his part, just grins.

In the Infernal tongue he responds, somehow coming across as both playful and serious at once. "I think... that is entirely debatable."

His attention is drawn away soon enough, however, by the mention of food, his grin widening. He knew Byron would come through! Still, he takes a second to study the new, older guy that showed up. He looks... really cool! Grigs hasn't met many Dragonborn, but they've tended toward good opponents, and this man holds himself well in spite of his age. He thinks they'll make good friends.

This is only backed up by the... Nidoran? The Grandmaster thingy, leading them on without wasting any time. Right to the meal, everything else can come later! Without hesitation, Grigs rushes along to join the path toward dinner, heavy footfalls sending a minute tremble through the floor as he goes.

Once they're seated at the table, they're introduced to a lot of people! Several of which he already knows, but also a Sicarius. He's heard that word a lot lately, it seems. Weren't they talking about that before? Well, there are also the parting words he and his enigmatic rescuer/rescuee had shared. He hadn't quite forgotten the name spoken there.

Still, he doesn't see any reason to be upset with that guy there. Considering they're sharing a table and meal with him, he's probably fine. Anyway, it becomes clear soon enough that he doesn't really like the bad guy Sicariuses, only the good guy ones. It's better than the opposite, but Grigs thinks it'd be cool if they all sit down and relax, rather than fighting about silly things- especially seeing as they're family and such!

That's about all the thought he affords the situation- honestly more than one could reasonably expect from the giant- looking around the room to find what's waiting to meet his stomach. He's exceedingly disappointed when nothing reveals itself. Still, he tempers his hunger long enough to pay attention, calling out "Grigs!" as they're asked for their names. "Nice to meet you!" He gives the man a very excited handshake that doesn't quite rip his hand off.

"Hmm. What happened?" Grigs speaks again as soon as the request for summary is voiced. "Well, I found a big wall, couldn't get through it, so I tried punching it, but that didn't work either. Then I hit this lady really hard and a bunch of goblins came out and shot me until I died." Grigs pauses, looking around to see if food has shown up yet. "Oh, right, I came back to life, recruited my best goblin buddy to help, and we all killed this really big eyeball zombie! It was fun. Too bad that other guy disappeared though. Would'a been fun to fight him too."

With that, Grigs goes silent, pleased with his explanation of events. Surely everyone else will be satisfied with this as well! He reaches out to grab a plate as they're brought, entirely oblivious to the fact they're not supposed to be eating yet.

Grigs issues his challenge to the elf, only to be met with the sight of his potential opponent, falling over unconscious. Grigs pokes it a few times, but it does nothing. “Guess I won twice,” he says, happily, figuring that he just hit so hard, the air pressure from his attack defeated the elf. That’s probably a thing that happens.

Walking inside, a lot of people are staring at him. Grigs doesn’t really notice, though, sticking a finger in his ear to scratch an itch, and following along, a massive tower shadowing the rest of his group.

Brian heads off to take care of somethin’ or other, Grigs waving him off. “Hope he doesn’t eat without us,” he says, under his breath. Which is, of course, loud enough to compare to regular volume for anybody else.

Now, this Tiefling, though! Well, actually, he doesn’t look like he wants to fight right now, and they’re kinda in the middle of something. Even if Grigs doesn’t understand or care about this stuff much, he knows they do, so he’s won’t interrupt, merely listening. He does kinda enjoy the praise from his comrades, though~

It’s as Sashi finishes discussing her master- whatever that’d be- and what happened to them, Eli chiming in, that Grigs gets an idea. “Hey, we should go break that guy outta jail!” If Sushi likes him, he’s probably nice, and anyway, who knows how many strong guys there’d be guarding the place!

...well, that’s if he’s alive at all. And Grigs does have other rescue missions to deal with, too. Maybe he’d get lucky, and they’re both needing rescued from the same place? He doesn’t really remember where that place he was gonna go to is, though. Well, whatever. He’ll pro’bly remember eventually.

In the meantime, he’ll just keep pretending to listen to people talk about stuff he was already there for. He doesn’t really get what this ‘running’ idea is about, since they can just beat all the bad guys up, instead, so he dismisses the words entirely. Grigs is more than ready to knock some heads! Like his new friend the orc said. He should see if that guy wants to go on an adventure too, now he’s thinks of it...

Cute parodies are nice.

Fate/Evangelion also nice. Lizsuka. Mash would make a good Rei, or maybe I just like her in skintight outfits.

Roman could be Kaji.
