Part 97: Pre-IntermissionPre-mission Adjustments
speed | 102 -> 106
Limit | 305 -> 335
Now after seeing this you may be asking me, "Why are you wasting all of your cash to upgrade a grunt suit?" A couple of people in the thread have made mention of a secret you can get if you sell a fully upgraded suit to the Bazaar. I figured that I might as well get it done now while I still have the cash.
Now I have access to some of the bast parts in the game! The parts will do the following:
Ultra-HP Thruster: Speed +35
Overlimiter: Limit +50
Buildup Parts: MaxHP +2000
Reinforced Armor: Armor +300
Mega Generator: Max EN +150
Spirit of Steel: Armor +250, Speed +30, Limit +40, All weapon hit rates +35%
All of these are good parts, and the Spirit of Steel alone is worth emptying your pockets. However, In the spirit of fairness, I won't be using these parts until about Mission 30.
: She's fine now. However, she said something troubling...
: Did something happen, Tifa?
: ...I had a dream...
: A dream?
: A sketchbook and pen, please...
: Alright, I'll scrounge something up for you.
: How could he take the GX and run like that? I wasn't even done analyzing it yet!
: ...It's alright. I think he'll come back.
: Why do you figure that?
: He had the eyes of someone very forthright. As soon as he realizes who he's supposed to protect, he'll come back here, I'm sure of it.
: Uh-huh... You're starting to sound like Tifa. Could you be a Newtype too?
: A mobile suit with butterfly wings... It couldn't be...
: So it's back in the land of the living...
: ...Even the GX-9900 was kept in operable condition. It's not that strange to see that mobile suit still on the Earth.
: But... Unlike the GX, the Turn-A is a one-of-a-kind machine. I find it extremely hard to believe that it could have survived through that disaster...
: (.........) Still, it does merit looking into.
: (.........) Tifa, do you know its location?
: ...A southern town... A southern town with a stone statue.
: Southern... That would mean in the direction of the Sunbelt region. But those who live there... They're neither Civilians, nor Innocent.
: ...Head for that town immediately. If that were to fall into Breaker or Moon Race hands...
: Yeah... It would mean a repeat of the same tragedy...
: But showing up out of the blue like that...?
: Ropet, what are the results of your analysis?
: PROBABILITY THAT OBJECT ENTERED THROUGH ATMOSPHERE IS OVER 92%.
: So, that means it came from space?
: UNABLE TO DETECT SIGNS OF GRAVITATIONAL OR DIMENSIONAL RIPPLES. IT WAS NOT ANY FORM OF TELEPORTATION.
: Maybe it's these people who supposedly live on the moon...?
Jamil enters the room
: What is it?
: Captain, it would seem that an object resembling a space battleship has made landfall in the southern portion of North Ameria.
: ! What's its position?
: According to the Freeden's map data, it's near a town called Vicinity.
: Vicinity... That's close to the location Tifa gave...
: Captain, are the people who made landing there...?
: Yes, they're of the Moon Race. It looks like they've really begun Operation Homecoming.
: Operation Homecoming?
: Yes. The people living on the moon aim to return to the Earth, their motherland.
: (Return to Earth...? Can the Spacenoids of this era not accept life in space...?)
: Sarah, Shingo. Have the Freeden depart immediately. Our destination is Vicinity.
: Roger that.
: All hands, to battle stations. We may end up in combat with the Moon Race.
: Roger. Freeden, lifting off!
After this, the rest of the intermission is just a very quick summery of what happened over on the Turn-A side (Moon race has landed, Kihel and Diana switch places, Loran is in a dress, etc etc...) So I will just be skipping most of it to get to the fight.
