Part 20: Sector X, General Tor, and the Pacifist Ending
Rewards change and logs change, Im not sure about the ending though.
P.S. If you kill even one enemy, does that lock you out of the pacifist run? Or is it more forgiving than that?
The final story update of the thread, but how much will it differ from the Violent Run?
General Tor and the Pacifist Ending
HOOOO BOY, look at all this stuff to read, FIRST.
Pacifist Ribbon Dialog
Im too lazy to figure out when it changes so you get every sector.
Iji: Hhh! Its, its one of Mias ribbons! Whats it doing here?
Dan: Iji, whats wrong?
Iji: Uh, nothing. She cant be alive anyway. Never mind.
Iji: Wait, whats this? Its another of Mias Ribbons! Some rat mustve found it and dragged it in here. Mia you probably werent far from dad and me, when the Tasen struck this place. Looks like me and Dan are the only ones who survived. Wait, I have to find Krotera I gotta focus!
Iji: Huh? Its another ribbon. Mia, you silly, you mustve carried lots of these when dad was showing us around. Strange. Why do I keep thinking of you, when Ive got something much more important to do?
Dan: Iji, what are you doing? We dont have time to daydream here.
Iji: I, I was just thinking of someone.
Dan: Hm. Dont dawdle.
Iji: Got it. (Hmm. Something tells me this trail of crumbs wont lead me anywhere useful, but like a trail, it also feels like missing just one of these would make me miss all the rest. And then I fear Id forget her I gotta keep finding the ribbons.)
Iji: Its another ribbon.
Iji: Oh, hi Dan. Im just thinking of Mia again. I mean
Dan: Mia. You know shes dead, right?
Iji: Y, yeah, its just that I keep finding these ribbons she dropped when dad was showing us around.
Dan: I see. I thought she only had nevermind.
Iji: Dan? I dont mean I never liked you too, I just
Dan: I know. You and Mia were close. Much closer than I ever was to any of you.
Iji: Come on. Dont say that.
Dan: I know what its like. I miss dad too, and I lost all my friends, everyone its been six months for me, so Ive learnt to accept it. Youve already adapted much faster than me though. Youre pretty strong.
Iji: No, I feel empty without Mia around so I welcome your support.
Dan: Uh, I would too, but listen. Life is different now. Personally, I cant lend anyone my support anymore. Dont get too attached to someone who might be killed at any moment the Tasen are literally on my doorstep. I dont want you to see me as your brother. You have to learn to support yourself, because you cant rely on anyone else.
Iji: Wh, WHAT!? How could you say that? Im the one supposed to be supporting YOU, anyway!
Dan: Look, forget what I just said, okay? Youre not ready to think like that yet. Talk to you later.
Iji: Hhh. Another ribbon. Did she really have this many? Mia, help me! I have to keep going! I have to find Dan Wait, I think I know a way to find him But first I have to get out of this Sector before they blow it all to bits! I dont care what Dan says about supporting ourselves, he needs my help! Thanks, Mia!
Iji: Wha- another ribbon!? Hhh. Heh, Dad really showed us all around this place. I guess thats why this area is so strangely familiar. Okay okay, maybe, maybe things arent that bad, right Mia? Once I find that Control Room, Ill call for Dan with the speakers. And hell reply, right? Hes gotta be somewhere I think. Damn it Mia, say something! Wait. Thats right, youre dead. Okay, no time to lose my mind. Dans counting on me. I mean, hes just as scared as I am, he just acts tough. I think he really cares for me I know, I didnt always give him the attention he deserved couldnt help him with his problems Wait, I dont have time for this! The Control rooms so close!
Iji: Anther dead end. Another Ribbon, somehow. I dont even care if Im seeing things, at least I can catch my breath again.
Dan: Iji, its me. How are you doing? Youve been fighting for a long time without food or sleep, now.
Iji: Oh actually, I havent noticed. Ive been thinking of Mia and you, and its just kept me going.
Iji: Yeah. You know, I could always rely on her. When mom left, and I had to take her place, Mia still looked up to me, made me feel better. I dont know why you and me were never closer, but
Dan: Heh. Mia was so young. And a girl. You always took her side.
Iji: Err, Dan?
Iji: Youre not angry, right?
Dan: No, no. Dont worry, we were only kids.
Iji: But were family! Youre my little bro, and I only ever cared about Mia. Im sorry that
Dan: Dont apologize! It makes you look weak, sis. I always looked up to you, so youve gotta hold your head high. We dont have time to argue about this.
Iji: Heh. Thanks, that makes me feel better. Talk to you soon!
Iji: Another Ribbon! Ive been collecting these a lot, now. The only other thing in my pocket is the Trapmine It reminds me of a robot Mia had when she was little, the one we used to save Dan from a bully once. I threw it pretty hard. Something tells me I should hang to this mine, until it really comes in handy. I dont need it to defend myself right now. Ill keep it, though it looks like the batteries wont last past this Sector.
Iji: Mia, how many of these did you bring here? Maybe the Tasen thought they were valuable or something. Theyve spread them all over the place.
Dan: Hey, Iji. How are you?
Iji: Oh, sorry whats wrong?
Dan: Nothing, really, just wanted to thank you for saving my life. But maybe this isnt the time
Iji: Its okay, youre welcome. Just stay safe, and Ill be fine.
Dan: Thanks. You know
Dan: I think I was wrong about supporting each other. Youre the only one I have left. Weve already saved each others lives at least once, and its not like Im feeling any better keeping you at a distance never mind, Im slowing you down.
Iji: Eh, just say it out loud, bro.
Iji: Never mind. Gotta hurry see you soon!
Iji: A, a ribbon? Mia
Dan: Whats wrong?
Dan: Look, you have to hurry before the Komato General leaves his post and returns to lower orbit! You can do it, but quickly!
Iji: Ah, thanks Dan, Ill reach him soon. I wont let you down!
Dan: Of course not, you havent made it this far for nothing I believe in you, so hurry up! Show em not to mess with my sis!
Iji: Got it! Mia thank you for everything. Ill never forget you!
Never say I never did anything for you guys, now on to the Pacifist Logs
Pacifist Asha Converstation/Dan Alive
Asha: Thats as far as you go, Anomaly! Time to play up!
Iji: Wha, you again!? Youre the one who tried to kill Dan!
Asha: Bah! If youre talking about the human, its no use trying to find him again that worthless civilian doesnt even have a bounty on his head, whats the use? It wont help my reputation, thats for sure!
Iji: Hhh you cold-blooded killer!
Asha: Well, arent you the tough one, huh? Whos the one who murdered Iosa, hmm?
Iji: SHUT UP! That wasnt even me, but this time it WILL be if you dont get out of my way!
Asha: Yeah, right! When I didnt even scratch your precious partner? Ive got more than enough reason to destroy you, little wretch more than your childish revenge!
Iji: Youve killed hundreds of people before! Everyone in your army, youre all the same!
Asha: Huh, so thats why youre fighting us? You think you can wipe the entire Imperial Army out? Youre a lunatic.
Iji: Th, I dont care what you think of me, but Im different from you!
Asha: Ho! There is no line between different and superior, human you say one thing, but you mean something else!
Iji: Thats because I AM superior to a pack of organized murderers!
Asha: Oh oh, come off it! Were all wicked, but Ill be wicked rich one Ive blown that inflated head off your shoulders!
Pacifist Asha Death Scene/Dan Alive
Iji: Thats what you get, you bastard! THATS WHAT YOU GET FOR TRYING TO KILL HIM!
Dan: Iji! What just happened!?
Iji: Hhh Dan I did it, I got that Assassin who caught you!
Dan: Whoa man, I wish I couldve been there!
Iji: Hhh heh, no problem. He wont come after you again.
Dan: Sis dont stick around, were really running out of time!
Iji: Got it!

I aint sparing anyone who tries to run from this mission. Our opponent is a single damn human, so get your asses over to your posts and KILL HER DEAD. You say shes just some grunt? I say shes the killer of our honored Iosa, using unique Nanotechnology and a priceless Nanogun, and so does High Command. And do you mess with High Command? NO. AND YOU DONT MESS WITH ME EITHER, SO GET THAT HUMAN. If youre more afraid of her than ME, YOURE A TRAITOR.
Komato Log that appears on the second level of the final room, only if you kill someone after having Ansaksie help you kill Iosa
Author: Komato Assassin 02384-56102-37456
This is Assassin Ansaksie. I forgot to thank you for your help. Its because of your cracking skills that we got anywhere near beating Iosa at all. The Imperial Army wont take her death lightly, and whatever happens when you get to Tor can only make it worse. Still, youve got a strong mind. Im with General Tor, but if a mere human is enough to change him perhaps I need to change as well and leave the Army. Dont worry about me, just do what you think is right. To be honest, I would have respected you even more had you not killed a single one of your enemies, but I guess thats too much to ask of a soldier. /Ansaksie

At any rate, if things go wrong and you need to put Tor in place, that Shotgun wont do you any good. I believe violence is a tool that should be used sparingly, but with utmost force. You understand this too, and as far as Ive gathered, you have survived this far without killing a single one of your enemies, not even when the chance was right in front of you. I admire that in a person. Therefore I have left you a Massacre, a weapon that was once used on Ciratako. Look up the weapon info if youre interested. Either way, this prototype is not as powerful as the real deal, and will drain your Armor when fired, but it should suffice to keep a Komato General in check. Good luck, Anomaly. /Ansaksie
Not the real deal

Same up to this point I was reluctant, but when Iosa asked what I would tell High Command if this would surface in the future, I could not think of a reply. More fleets would in time come here, and more scout teams would be sent. The Tasens extinction was inevitable, and so I made the transmission public, and added exactly what it implied. The roaring and cheering of our troops could be heard all the way to the command bridge. The burden never rested on me in the first place, but on my people.

Subject: General exoskeleton Maximum charge
Whats your deal, Zekailo? Always poking your nose in things. I suppose Ill tell you what Im guarding here. You see, normally the Eidolon General exoskeletons take some time to achieve the full power of their weapon arrays after first being activated. If a General needs to do combat unprepared, the exoskeletons weapons will start out weak and gradually increase in power as they are used. This is rarely the case as the Generals of the Imperial Army are not simply surprised by their enemies, and any battles with the Tasen are carefully planned. In case of an emergency, however, a mobile power core can be used to perform a Maximum charge of the exoskeleton, upgrading all of its weapons to their full potency as soon as its activated. We actually have a power core dedicated to charging Tors exoskeleton right here, but I doubt well have to use it. If you were to mess with that terminal over here, it means Tor will be FULLY charged for battle, absolutely no punches held.

Zekailo! Just in case you poke around up here after I leave, I must warn you again DO NOT MESS WITH THAT TERMINAL, or once General Tor enters his exoskeleton, this power core will raise its weapons and defense shielding to maximum power! Youll get in trouble if you do that without permission!

Anomaly I had been waiting. Waiting to kill you or die trying, but no. NO. you wouldnt give me the pleasure escaping life by your hands would be the only thing less shameful than returning without the bounty. My arm my reputation losing to a human and now failing to kill you. Ive become so stained, its far too late to cleanse myself. Give my regards to the General, the General that will soon end your miserable, pathetic excuse for a life, snuffed out like the trillion others at the hands of the Komato. Do you understand, human? This planet will end. Everyone will die. Everyone. Death. DEATH!
