((Also, keep in mind. Once we get in combat, talking will mostly be limited to short bursts. Silence is strictly enforced by the Tenno, for the sake of secrecy. If their enemies got their hands on some of the tech they have, they'd be screwed.))
Loki turned to the woman, wearing a Nyx frame. He nodded to himself. That was good. Nyx was a powerful fighter, and it's abilities would prove useful.
"Lotus has instructed us to destroy the reactor on this ship. Unfortunately, it's crawling with Grineer, so go for the head. Right now, we're about one click away from the reactor, but we'll have to fight our way there."
So saying, Loki drew his MK-1, rose smoothly to his feet from the kneeling position he had been in, and moved to cover the door.
Loki nodded back, then took a deep breath, steadying himself. He lunged around the corner, sweeping the hallway beyond. Door to the left, stairs going down a short way to the right. No enemies in sight. He turned both ways, covering the approaches, then started right, going down a few feet on the stairs.
"Hang back a little. If I go invisible, they'll spot you if you're too close."
((Note: Mind control can only affect one target at a time. Meaning if we get spotted by a group, and I duck out, they'll still have time to sound the alarm. Also, we only have a small amount of starting energy, so only a couple mind controls.))
Loki shrugged. She wanted to get killed, it was her business. He moved forward, then pressed against the wall and peeked around the corner. Damn. Six Grineer, four lancers, two marines. (Lancers use shotguns, marines use assault rifles.) He turned to the woman behind him, gesturing forward and making the sign for "Enemy," with his fingers, then crouched against the wall and pointed to his rifle, then made a questioning gesture.
Thinking of what to do, I decided it would be best if we had the element of surprise. I nodded at his rifle, and then put a finger to my lips, to signal that he would have to be quiet with his attacks.
((I will be gone all weekend, and will leave around 1:30 today. Just a note so you don't wonder why I won't be making replies to this. I will try to post over the weekend, but I most likely won't be able to.))
((Heh. Stealth it is then. Also, no problem with the weekend. I won't be on much then either.))
Loki grinned, though you couldn't see it beneath the helmet. Stealth. His preferred style. He rose from the wall, concentrated, and engaged the cloaking on his armor. It vanished, and he was invisible, and already moving. He sprinted into the room, hands already drawing the blade from his back. He singled out a target - a Lancer- and hit it, hard. His blade impaled it's back, penetrating clean through, and pinning it to the wall. He put his foot on the corpse, yanked his blade out, and spun towards the others. They were staring at the corpse shocked.
He stepped forward, slashed toward the neck of a Marine, removed it's head, then shoulder rammed a Lancer, knocking it against the railing. His invisibility disengaged from the hit, and he followed up by burying the Skana in it's head, the blade vanishing inside it's body. He turned, leaving the blade where it was, and drew his Lato, aiming it at the head of the final Marine, as the Lancers across the room sprinted towards them, trying to help. He grinned and pulled the trigger.

The Orient's Pearl
[[skeptical. the idea can be toyed with, yes, but in and of itself Warframe hasn't much of a story, being more of a run-gun-upgrade thing.
not sure how you are planning to drive this.
with only two of you as well, don't really expect this to last.]]

Sometimes I wonder if it's all too easy.
Lying, cheating, stealing your way to victory.
Though just how far would you fall for a dream?
I look over at the two other Lancers. "Oh, right, I forgot about those two fleas." I take out my blade, run towards the one on the left, and when they lunge towards me, I swerve to the right. As I swerve I keep my blade out, slicing through a Lancer. I then use my mind control on the other one, and make that Lancer choke themself. I look at my teammate and say, "Okay, now that that's over, let's go."
((OK, that'll work. Just keep in mind, unless you absorb more energy -perhaps from a Grineer chest?- you'll only be able to use the mind control one more time, or on a very weak target.))
Loki nodded to the woman. She knew her blade, at least. Holstering his pistol and retrieving his Skana from the corpse, he turned and leaped over the railing, landing in a crouch on the floor below. Rising, he followed the woman. The alarm hadn't gone off, so they were still in the clear. Still, best to try to avoid all out combat. They weren't experienced enough for that just yet.
I look at my teammate, realizing that I didn't know his name. "Hey, do you mind telling me your name, Captain? Its best I know it so I can ask for help, if needed." I tell him, skeptical that he would ever tell me.
Loki turned to the Tenno and answered "Call me Loki." So saying, he popped around a corner and covered the room beyond with a sweep of his MK-1. Things were strangely quiet. He didn't like it. Then he shrugged. He was new to Grineer, for all he knew their ships only had five guards for the entire thing. He gestured for the Nyx to follow him, then headed further inside, angling for an elevator on the other side of the room, across a walkway.
"Okay, Loki." I say to him. As I follow him I notice that things were strangly quiet. "Hey, have you noticed that they aren't coming after us? That could mean that they're trying to keep us away from something." I tell him, unsure that I was correct.
((I am interested in joining. I should be able to post again by Thursday. I'm pretty new to Warframe, so sorry if I don't get any lore correct! Also, am I able to use a bow in place of the long gun? I would prefer to, but I will use the gun if I must.))
