Chapter 4 - Act I - Part 2


[07:33:20] GM: Okay…: The Drones go forth to scour the planet for sign's of the Invid's base of operations. they dont turn up much, until one of the drones fails to report in while overflying a lowland area some 1000km from the demolished settlement.
[07:34:35] 2Lt. Sarah blinks and frowns a little at that, making sure to scribble down the coordinates and watching to see if any other drones go 'missing', before assuming based on limited intel.
[07:35:45] Capt Kain Crockett: "Looks like we have our first place of investigation."
[07:36:06] Capt Kain Crockett: "Almost wish we had ground penetrating radar to cover the place."
[07:37:21] 2Lt. Sarah nods at that. "Indeed." She sighs. "Still, depending no cloud cover, we might get at least something from the overflight." She tries to review the video log of the drone if there is one, to see what she can see about its final minutes. [1d20+1] => [16,1] = (17) perc, [1d100] => [45] = (45) lore invid vs. 86%
[07:38:00] 2Lt. Sarah: (( from an overflight rather ))
[07:41:00] Capt Kain Crockett does his own overflight look at the area. [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9) PERC, [1d100] => [61] = (61) vs 70 RSI, [1d100] => [59] = (59) vs 71 Intelligence, [1d100] => [92] = (92) vs 60 Track, [1d100] => [59] = (59) vs 65 Detect Ambush.
[07:42:03] GM: You dont get much, the drone had picked up on something interesting, and when it was comeing around to make another pass to take a closer look it took ground fire and was shot down. Thats all the telemtary tells you basically "I see something" "Going to look" "I'm under attack" and thats it. anything more would be sotred in the onboard computers.
[07:45:13] GM: The drone was lost maybe an hour or so ago.
[07:46:28] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Um, we weren't checking the drone. We had launched to do overflights with our own eyes and instruments.))
[07:47:00] GM: Oh, sorry, totally misread that
[07:47:09] 2Lt. Sarah: (( I was checking the drone log, he started the overflight. ))
[07:47:24] GM: Well actually no, Carrie was looking at frone footage. i missread Kain's
[07:47:26] Capt Kain Crockett: ((okay, so you were right on Sarah's))
[07:48:31] 2Lt. Sarah: [1d20+1] => [2,1] = (3) perc, [1d100] => [23] = (23) vs. 75% RSI, [1d100] => [54] = (54) vs. 80% detect concealment, [1d100] => [11] = (11) vs. 85% detect ambush, [1d100] => [100] = (100) vs. 79% Optics systems, and [1d100] => [1] = (1) vs. 86% lore invid (for the flyover)
[07:48:48] 2Lt. Sarah: (( … :p ))
[07:49:40] GM: Your overflight reveals the downed drone, (a ways away but you can see the smoke plume where it when in)
[07:49:49] GM: How low do you fly?
[07:51:53] 2Lt. Sarah: (( I'd say high enough to avoid PC sensors. ))
[07:52:05] Capt Kain Crockett: ((500 km))
[07:52:05] 2Lt. Sarah: (( unless I guess wrong ))
[07:54:15] GM: ((500km? You arent gonna get much out of that but the crash site))
[07:56:10] Capt Kain Crockett: ((10 KM))
[07:56:15] 2Lt. Sarah: (( I was thinkin more like 5-10 km myself ))
[07:57:45] GM: Also, Sarah, you are well aware (you all are aware) that facility mounted PC sensors, like those on Hives and Skoprion Carriers, can detect targets as small as a fighter out to at least 40,000km (Line of Sight)
[07:59:48] 2Lt. Sarah of course reminds of that, along the way
[08:02:04] GM: ((at 10km up you can get a better picture, the terrain is rolling hills and grasslands with some patches of denser foliage, odd looking alien plantlife. You can see the crash site, and your thermlas alert to what the Drone must have detected. Those denser area's of foliage are the more likely sources of the ground fire as it would be easier to hide in there. Of course, given the propensity of the Invid to burrow…
[08:02:49] 2Lt. Sarah makes note of that as well, and again agrees about the ground penetrating radar.
[08:03:10] GM: Of course, the burrowing aspect was largely a Regess forces thing…the Regent wasn't known for his care of subtlety
[08:05:10] 2Lt. Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:05:18] 2Lt. Sarah: (( and watch sarah sweatdrop at that part ))
[08:05:39] Capt Kain Crockett: "So, where are the craft that brought down are drone? If this is Regent forces, I doubt they are that subtle."
[08:06:26] Capt Kain Crockett: "I'm going Battloid and checking the foiliage. Ay, your with me, everyone else, go Guardian and provide overwatch.
[08:06:38] 2Lt. Sarah: "Acknowledged."
[08:06:46] Capt Kain Crockett transforms into Battloid to go have a looksy at the foiliage.
[08:06:55] Cpt. Aylanea flies down quickly with Kain. "Sure thing." She shifts to battloid quickly as well.
[08:07:04] GM: ((note that burrowing is alos very mich like setting a minefield, they are more effective the longer they sit.
[08:07:28] 2Lt. Sarah moves to overwatch, and tries to sense for protoculture sigs. [1d20+5] => [11,5] = (16)
[08:09:15] GM: You think you can feel something, it's not distinct, and it is distant, not close.
[08:09:19] Capt Kain Crockett: [1d20+1] => [15,1] = (16) PERC, [1d100] => [16] = (16) RSI, [1d100] => [76] = (76) 71 Intelligence, [1d100] => [64] = (64) vs 60 Track, [1d100] => [63] = (63) => 65 Detect Ambush.
[08:09:29] 2Lt. Sarah: (( direction? ))
[08:09:47] GM: Nearby the crash site.
[08:10:13] GM: Kain you get a better fix on that heat source.
[08:10:48] GM: It's about 15km away, in open ground.
[08:10:53] Cpt. Aylanea: [1d20] => [14] = (14) perc, [1d100] => [55] = (55) vs. 88% RSI, [1d100] => [3] = (3) vs. 84% Intelligence.
[08:11:23] Cpt. Aylanea reports whatever it is she's sensing, with apologies for not having a clearer sense of it
[08:11:36] 2Lt. Sarah does that ,rather.
[08:11:41] 2Lt. Sarah: (( *bonks Ay* ))
[08:12:39] GM: Ay can confirm Kains readings
[08:13:00] GM: ((bio))
[08:13:15] Capt Kain Crockett: "I've got a fix on the heat source. going to check it out. Keep providing overwatch."
[08:14:10] Capt Kain Crockett moves in closer, gunpod ready to shoot should something spring up. [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2) PERC, [1d100] => [74] = (74) vs 70 RSI, [1d100] => [74] = (74) vs 71 Intelligence, [1d100] => [58] = (58) vs 60 Track, [1d100] => [79] = (79) vs 65 Detect Am
[08:15:59] 2Lt. Sarah: "Acknowledged…"
[08:16:41] Cpt. Aylanea moves in along with. [1d20] => [18] = (18) perc, [1d100] => [34] = (34) RSI, [1d100] => [58] = (58) intel.
[08:16:57] Cpt. Aylanea: (( *dumps a squirrel into Kain's pants* ))
[08:19:25] WO Febrith Nyx keeps in guardain Mode and watches things. [1d20+1] => [10,1] = (11) PERc, [1d100] => [99] = (99) vs 53 RSI. [1d100] => [46] = (46) vs 63 Intelligence
[08:22:00] 2Lt. Sarah keeps up her overwatch, adjusting for the moving closer as well. [1d20+1] => [20,1] = (21) perc, [1d20+5] => [2,5] = (7) Sense PC (to get a better idea of what it is), [1d100] => [43] = (43) vs. 75% RSI, [1d100] => [98] = (98) vs. 80% Detect Conceal, [1d100] => [96] = (96) vs 85% Detect Ambush
[08:22:23] 2Lt. Sarah: wow, a ton of fail, and a critsucc
[08:22:27] 2Lt. Sarah: (( er, ooc that ))
[08:23:19] GM: Kain you appraoch where you picked up the heat trace and come upon a figure hiding in the tall grass, he's visually hidden, but your advanced sensors see him plain as day.
[08:24:18] Capt Kain Crockett: ((how big of a figure?))
[08:24:27] GM: Human sized
[08:24:46] Capt Kain Crockett sweeps away the tall grass and points his gun at the figure. "Identify yourself."
[08:26:58] GM: Faced with the massive barrel of the gunpod the figure screams and in bearly comprhensible tiresian seems to be begging for mercy.
[08:28:04] Capt Kain Crockett: "Who here knows Tiresian?
[08:28:16] Cpt. Aylanea facepalms, or rather her mecha does so it's visible, and shakes the head, adjusting her translator. "Did you happen to shoot at a little drone that was flying near here?" She gestures towards the crash site.
[08:28:23] Cpt. Aylanea: (( don't the mechs have translators? ))
[08:28:33] Cpt. Aylanea: (( I thought the big ones did ))
[08:28:36] Cpt. Aylanea: (( :p ))
[08:30:22] GM: The figure, mle, young, say, late teens, in tatters and obviously undernourished and dirty takes a bit of time to comport himself before answering in the negative.
[08:31:34] Capt Kain Crockett puts his gun at an at rest position.
[08:32:36] Cpt. Aylanea sticks her gun back to 'at ease' as well.
[08:32:50] Cpt. Aylanea: (( anything for Sarah's overwatch and that nat 20 perc? ^_^ ))
[08:32:57] Capt Kain Crockett: "If we can't get him to talk, then Ay, pick him up and bring him back to the ship."
[08:33:10] Cpt. Aylanea nods just a little at that.
[08:33:48] GM: Yeah Ay, and make sure you ask him to hold his breath…
[08:34:14] Cpt. Aylanea: (( we're in gammas I'd think, since we're landing and have to go back. ))
[08:34:26] Cpt. Aylanea: (( don't they allow for passengers? ))
[08:35:16] Cpt. Aylanea: (( oh wait. ))
[08:35:20] Cpt. Aylanea: (( *rereads the delta* nm ))
[08:35:45] Cpt. Aylanea: (( too used to Alphas and other stuff not being able to. lol ))
[08:36:03] Capt Kain Crockett: ((I meant for him to get stuck in a cock pit.))
[08:36:06] GM: Sarah, your 20 perc comes into play from around you (in following in with the velociraptro joke, teh tall grass hisses and somethings moves thru them.
[08:37:08] Capt Kain Crockett: ((brb, bio)
[08:37:14] 2Lt. Sarah blinks at that. "We have something moving through the tall grass…." She tries to get a sensor image and PC sense from whatever it is. [1d20+5] => [19,5] = (24) PC, [1d100] => [42] = (42) RSI vs. 75%
[08:40:11] GM: As they get closer Sarah, you can pick up faint heat traces (apparently whatever it is is well suited to the terrain) and occasioanlly you can see the tip of a tail of some sort.
[08:40:47] 2Lt. Sarah swears audibly, thinking. "Faint heat traces and tips of tails. Possibly hellcats…"
[08:41:03] GM: PC wise, you can pick up a few incredibly tiny signatures.
[08:41:29] 2Lt. Sarah: (( tiny but recognizable like the hands last week? ))
[08:41:31] 2Lt. Sarah: (( or something else ))
[08:42:59] GM: far smaller
[08:43:49] Capt Kain Crockett: "Ay, get that man in your cockpit. Overwatch prepare to fire. We're getting off the groun as as the civilian is secured."
[08:43:55] 2Lt. Sarah: "Very tiny PC signatures…" She frowns a little.
[08:44:13] Cpt. Aylanea: "Er, my cockpit isn't designed to fit two…" She sighs.
[08:44:28] Capt Kain Crockett gets between the man and the incoming signatures, as identified by Sarah and holds his gunpod at the ready.
[08:44:43] GM: As you speak the, whatever they are burst from the grass towards fellow on the ground.
[08:45:01] GM: 8 quadraped lizards of some sort
[08:45:18] GM: ((Sleeeeeeeeen!))
[08:45:20] Cpt. Aylanea tries to scoop him up at least and block the path along with the Gamma.
[08:45:31] Capt Kain Crockett: "Then I'll do it. Cover me."
[08:45:54] Capt Kain Crockett transforms into guardian, pops the canopy and gestures the man in.
[08:46:07] GM: [8d20] => [13,13,3,20,4,4,12,6] = (75)
[08:46:21] Cpt. Aylanea tries to hand the man into the cockpit, if she succeeded in picking him up.
[08:46:24] GM: Roll a parry kain
[08:47:17] GM: Ay rather
[08:48:47] GM: Carrie>
[08:48:49] GM: ?
[08:48:53] Cpt. Aylanea: [1d20+12] => [4,12] = (16) parry
[08:49:10] Capt Kain Crockett: [1d20+11] => [19,11] = (30)
[08:49:54] GM: Okay, you scoop him up and seven of the eight lizard things miss, either bouncing off your mehca's arm or hand, or missing their leap, but on has the guy by the leg. Let the screaming begin
[08:50:09] Cpt. Aylanea: (( oh shit. ))
[08:51:01] GM: these things are about the size of a crocodile in terms of length
[08:53:49] Capt Kain Crockett takes out a side arm and shoots the croc in the head. [1d20+9] => [19,9] = (28)
[08:54:00] GM: And Ay?
[08:54:05] GM: Roll damage Kain
[08:54:10] Cpt. Aylanea tries to reach for the gator with the other hand and squeeze its jaws slightly to open them, if the jaws have the guy, otherwise tries to break the creature's limb if it's holding on with claws. [1d20+14] => [6,14] = (20) h2h
[08:54:51] Capt Kain Crockett: [2d6] => [5,5] = (10)
[08:55:20] Cpt. Aylanea tries to be /careful/ mind you, not wanting to hurt the guy any further.
[08:57:21] GM: Ay is unable to effect that fine a manipulation with a Mecha, so instead just squeezes the crocodile thing fromt he middle like a tube of toothpaste. Kains shot hits the head as Ay's mecha clenches it's fist and the crocodile thing messily splatters seing most of it out the front and back, the tiresian is covered in ick and alternates between slient shock, and howling in pain at the nasty bite he just recieved.
[08:58:23] GM: Meanwhile the other creatures are trying to scramble up the legs of the mecha to get at their prey, with mixed reuslts, some quite comical.
[08:58:25] Capt Kain Crockett pulls the guy in and closes the lid. As soon as possible, he gets airborne.
[08:58:58] Cpt. Aylanea pulls away once the guy is in, and launches up to switch to guardian, then jet mode.
[08:59:57] GM: As you lift off your radar detects 9 targets being you closing fast (airborne) your warbook ID's them as Booster scouts.
[09:01:40] Capt Kain Crockett: "We got boosters incoming!"
[09:01:46] Cpt. Aylanea: "yes, I see that.
[09:01:57] Cpt. Aylanea: "Lets get out of here…"
[09:02:34] Cpt. Aylanea: "No need to engage if we're not finding the big base, long as we can avoid, right?"
[09:02:40] WO Febrith Nyx tracks and unloads 15 SRMS at three of the boosters (5 each) and gets transatmospheric as fast as possible. [1d20+3] => [3,3] = (6)
[09:02:48] Capt Kain Crockett: "If we can avoid."
[09:03:10] GM: [9d20] => [12,8,18,19,3,4,15,17,12] = (108)
[09:03:18] GM: Nyx hits nothing
[09:03:26] 2Lt. Sarah switches to fighter and moves to transatmospheric velocity. "We can try to anyway…"
[09:03:26] GM: oh wait hold on
[09:03:37] GM: [3d20] => [14,4,5] = (23)
[09:03:45] GM: [1d100] => [51] = (51)
[09:04:03] Cpt. Aylanea adjusts for transatmospheric as well.
[09:04:16] GM: two boosters are wiped out , 2 missile shit a third
[09:04:25] GM: ((missiles hit…
[09:04:41] GM: ((oOMG you missiles just pooped out a Booster invid!))
[09:06:03] Capt Kain Crockett: ((need Nyx to roll?))
[09:06:17] Capt Kain Crockett gets into fighter and starts going transatmospheric.
[09:06:23] 2Lt. Sarah: "… since when do booster scouts have missiles? They never had missiles at Reflex Point, or before that, on Earth… Did the Regent update the design before dying? or…" she frowns.
[09:06:31] 2Lt. Sarah stays at transatmospheric.
[09:06:56] GM: ((ummm, no…))
[09:07:13] GM: reread that
[09:07:22] 2Lt. Sarah: (( they countered the missiles with their own ))
[09:07:26] 2Lt. Sarah: (( didn't fire at her ))
[09:07:29] GM: they do have blasters
[09:08:00] 2Lt. Sarah: (( or I misread? oh. ))
[09:08:03] 2Lt. Sarah: (( ignore that then ))
[09:08:06] 2Lt. Sarah: (( *rubs eyes* ))
[09:08:14] GM: any way, 2 of Nyx's missile hit a third, i need damage rolled
[09:08:28] 2Lt. Sarah: (( I'm an idiot. :p ))
[09:09:28] WO Febrith Nyx: [2d6*10*2] => 140
[09:10:42] GM: scratch one booster invid,
[09:10:57] GM: The rest open fire as the give chase
[09:11:33] GM: [6d4] => [4,1,3,1,4,3] = (16) 1 sarah, 2 ay, 3 nyx, 4 kain [6d20] => [14,18,16,20,3,3] = (74)

[09:12:13] GM: 21 and a nat 20 at Sarah
[09:12:29] GM: 19 and a 5 at Nyx
[09:12:54] 2Lt. Sarah: [1d20+10] => [17,10] = (27) [1d20+10] => [18,10] = (28)
[09:13:01] 2Lt. Sarah: (( nat 20 hits. ))
[09:13:30] GM: [((6d6)+6)*2] => 50
[09:14:32] WO Febrith Nyx: [1d20+11] => [11,11] = (22)
[09:14:33] WO Febrith Nyx: [1d20+11] => [10,11] = (21)

[09:14:45] Capt Kain Crockett: [1d20+15] => [6,15] = (21)
[09:15:49] GM: no joy for the inbits
[09:16:12] GM: You start to leave atmosphere but the Invid continue to follow
[09:18:36] WO Febrith Nyx transforms into Guardian and fires a volley scatter shot of 30 SRMS (all she packed) into the Invid pursuers before turning around and resuming flight. [1d20+5] => [5,5] = (10)
[09:20:10] GM: [6d20] => [5,3,2,15,1,2] = (28)
[09:20:30] GM: Well, damn, lucky Nyx, just kills 5 more
[09:20:33] GM: [1d100] => [76] = (76)
[09:21:13] GM: but the 6th knocks out all the missiles fired at it and then returns fire at [1d4] => [2] = (2)
[09:21:25] GM: Ay [1d20+3] => [20,3] = (23)
[09:22:15] Cpt. Aylanea: [1d20] => [20] = (20)
[09:22:32] Cpt. Aylanea: +15 for 35
[09:22:41] Cpt. Aylanea: auto-dodge
[09:23:01] GM: And Ay dodges the 20 with a 20
[09:24:10] GM: Kain and Sarah have actions
[09:24:39] 2Lt. Sarah: (( two left? ))
[09:26:19] GM: 1 left
[09:26:30] 2Lt. Sarah: (( k ))
[09:26:39] 2Lt. Sarah: (( Kain's action or mine? ))
[09:27:31] GM: just go
[09:27:33] 2Lt. Sarah fires six SRMs towardds the final scout, quickly. [1d20+3] => [5,3] = (8)
[09:27:35] GM: doenst matte
[09:27:42] GM: [1d20+3] => [10,3] = (13)
[09:27:44] Capt Kain Crockett keeps going for the ship, he has a bleeder in his cockpit, "I'm going to need a medic on deck when I land."
[09:27:47] GM: [1d100] => [96] = (96)
[09:27:48] 2Lt. Sarah: (( what is it with the shitty hit rolls on missiles tonight? ))
[09:27:52] GM: You missiles are defeated Sarah
[09:29:09] GM: ay and Nyx
[09:30:15] WO Febrith Nyx purs it on with gun fire, being out of missiles. [1d20+5] => [4,5] = (9)
[09:31:22] GM: [1d20+5] => [15,5] = (20)
[09:31:24] GM: Miss
[09:31:27] Cpt. Aylanea switches to Guardian quickly, and fires her own guns and gunpod. [1d20+15] => [12,15] = (27)
[09:32:02] Cpt. Aylanea: (( medium busts ))
[09:32:33] GM: [1d20+5] => [7,5] = (12)
[09:32:35] GM: damage
[09:32:37] Cpt. Aylanea: [(4d8*10)+(2d8*10)+(2d4*10)] => 370
[09:32:47] GM: So very dead
[09:32:51] Cpt. Aylanea: (hehe)
[09:33:46] GM: You shake off your persuers as what remains of them burns up in reentry or otherwise plumets to the ground below. A crash team is waiting on deck to recieve your patient/rescuee and he is whisked away to the ships sick bay.
[09:36:45] Capt Kain Crockett files the proper reports and then meets with the squad in the mess hall.
[09:37:09] GM: I think only Sarah mecha took damage, but it's light, it'll buff right out. Of course, the blood and gore from the crocosleen thing utterly grosses out the deck crew when after it thaws starts to ooze out of the fairing where the mecha's hand retracts into on Ay's mecha.
[09:37:31] Capt Kain Crockett: "So the Invid have been cooking up new pests to throw at us. Where would they hide a facility to do such a thing?"
[09:38:47] Cpt. Aylanea: (( the line from sarah was in error and to be ignored. lol ))
[09:39:00] Cpt. Aylanea shakes her head. "Booster scouts are same old pests as always."
[09:39:25] 2Lt. Sarah: "And just as annoying as normal." She shakes her head. "At least there were only nine, and not dozens, or whole clamshells full of them."
[09:43:13] Capt Kain Crockett: "I'm talking about the lizards."
[09:44:41] 2Lt. Sarah ughs. "Not sure on those, if they were local, or pit spawned monsters."
[09:44:57] 2Lt. Sarah: "You might be rigrht though. I did detect small PC sigs, that would explain those."
[09:45:34] 2Lt. Sarah: "didn't get a good look at them. That was more Ay's thing. Maybe they should get a sample off the hand of her mech to test."
[09:46:42] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Did they look mechanical or biological?))
[09:47:00] Capt Kain Crockett: ((I guess I should ask, organic or inorganic?))
[09:47:13] 2Lt. Sarah: (( read about the damage listing on the crud on Ay's mecha ))
[09:47:26] 2Lt. Sarah: (( mechanical doesn't leave blood and gore thawing and oozing out. ))
[09:48:14] GM: ((biological))
[09:48:21] GM: ((organinc))
[09:49:29] Capt Kain Crockett: "Well, what manner of organic reader gives off PC readings?"
[09:51:26] 2Lt. Sarah: "Something from the experiment pits, mostly, I'd have to say."
[09:52:31] WO Febrith Nyx: "Pity we didn't catch one, I'd like to run some dissections on them."
[09:53:08] Lt. Melanie McGregor: "Just don't go getting the gunk in some place I have to fix. Those engineering cadets aren't cheap."
[09:53:47] 2Lt. Sarah: "Wouldn't think of it."
[09:57:21] GM: As you banter the ship goes to red alert and the call for all pilots to man their planes goes out
[09:58:48] Lt. Melanie McGregor goes to engineering, where her actual duties lie.
[09:59:04] Capt Kain Crockett gets into the cockpit of his Gamma and airborne.
[09:59:04] GM: The ship suddenly lurches, having been hit
[09:59:12] 2Lt. Sarah sighs and jumps into her own gamma
[09:59:20] WO Febrith Nyx forms up with the squad.
[09:59:27] Cpt. Aylanea scrambles her Delta quick.
[09:59:36] Lt. Melanie McGregor: "Well, that sounded like 4 days of work."
[10:00:52] GM: You launch into a massive furball. The 'Fish you can tell is turning to put distance between it an a Mollusk Class Invid assault ship that has unloaded a good 100 or so mecha.
[10:01:22] GM: All of her guns are firing as the Fish rolls to bring her bigger guns to bear on the enemy cap ship
[10:02:08] GM: As you launch, a few of your supporting fighters are blown to shreds before they can even clear the bay
[10:02:09] 2Lt. Sarah sighs very softly as she sees that.
[10:02:45] GM: Ay, as you Delta is swung into place for launch about six Invid mecha assault the deck
[10:03:06] WO Febrith Nyx: "Fish versus Mollusk. I really feel like I should be under water."
[10:03:37] Capt Kain Crockett: "Save the chatter for later."
[10:04:26] GM: Ay, your way off the ship is blocked by the Invid as they begin to look for targets of oppurtunity, you draw the attention of a pair of them.
[10:04:36] GM: It is your action Ay
[10:04:50] Cpt. Aylanea: "oh shit!" She fires quickly at one of them with her guns. [1d20+15] => [13,15] = (28)
[10:04:59] GM: [1d20+5] => [7,5] = (12)
[10:05:00] Cpt. Aylanea: [(4d8*10)+(2d8*10)+(2d4*10)] => 390
[10:05:19] GM: Your bust obliterates the offending Invid
[10:05:30] Cpt. Aylanea shouts into her helmet radio as she fires. "Invid mechs on the flight deck!"
[10:06:00] GM: The other one thrusts towards you and takes a swipe at the cockpit glass [1d20+4] => [4,4] = (8)
[10:06:19] GM: ((Invid Troops have entered the base! invid troops have……))
[10:07:11] Capt Kain Crockett: "we'll get to it ASAP. Nyx and Ay. You take them.
[10:07:15] Cpt. Aylanea tries to maneuver from hover and mode-switch as a dodge. [1d20+15] => [13,15] = (28) dodge/ground (she;'s not high enough to be in air yet)
[10:07:28] GM: Another pair, looking for other targets turn towards Ay, while the other two start in on the deck crew, with hoffic results.
[10:07:55] Cpt. Aylanea: "Need help sooner than later, they're killing the whole deck crew!"
[10:08:09] Cpt. Aylanea: (( my turn to fire on another? ))
[10:08:11] GM: Kain and Nyx, you are in the 'air' you have a flight of Invid ahead of you, and a flight swarms in from behind.
[10:08:13] Cpt. Aylanea: (( or Nyx's? ))
[10:08:16] Cpt. Aylanea: (( oh ))
[10:08:29] Cpt. Aylanea: (( heh ))
[10:08:46] Cpt. Aylanea: (( guess I'm not in a separate battle. :p ))
[10:09:03] Cpt. Aylanea: (( is Sarah 'out' or 'in? ))
[10:09:04] GM: ((you are, but I'm following the init order))
[10:09:19] GM: Sarah is out, but it's not her turn yet
[10:09:27] Cpt. Aylanea: (( just making sure ))
[10:09:29] Cpt. Aylanea: (( ^_^ ))
[10:10:05] Capt Kain Crockett fires on the incoming wave with 15 missiles spread across the flight of Invid. [1d20+3] => [2,3] = (5)
[10:10:44] WO Febrith Nyx turns around and firers 15 of her own missiles at the swarm behind. [1d20+3] => [5,3] = (8)
[10:11:19] GM: Kains missiles dont do squat.
[10:11:29] GM: [4d20] => [14,7,11,10] = (42)

[10:12:35] GM: for five missiles
[10:13:34] WO Febrith Nyx: [2d6*10*5] => 150
[10:14:45] GM: you destroy an inderterminate number of enemy fighter craft
[10:15:12] GM: Sarah your turn, you are with Nyx and kain
[10:16:04] 2Lt. Sarah quickly fires at the same flight as Kain, since his missiles didn't do anything, trying to get 15 of her own into the fray quickly. [1d20+3] => [10,3] = (13)
[10:16:18] Dairugger (enter): 22:16
[10:20:48] GM: [4d20] => [10,15,12,17] = (54)
[10:21:30] GM: Sarahs missiles do marginally better. roll damage for 7
[10:21:48] 2Lt. Sarah: [(2d6*10)*7] => 420
[10:23:25] 2Lt. Sarah: (( meow ))
[10:24:27] GM: Sarah, you clear out a decent amount, and a few break off for easier targets while four continue to give persuit, firing [4d4] => [3,3,1,1] = (8) [4d20] => [6,18,10,16] = (50)
[10:25:28] GM: 2 at sarah and 2 at nyx
[10:25:43] WO Febrith Nyx: [1d20+11] => [11,11] = (22)
[10:25:43] WO Febrith Nyx: [1d20+11] => [17,11] = (28)
[10:25:46] GM: 10 and 22 / 14 and 20

[10:26:53] GM: so is sarah
[10:27:05] GM: in the hanger by, Ay
[10:27:09] GM: bay
[10:28:17] Cpt. Aylanea swears softly, trying to fire at another of the Invid mechs. [1d20+15] => [14,15] = (29)
[10:28:32] Cpt. Aylanea: [(4d8*10)+(2d8*10)+(2d4*10)] => 420 damage
[10:29:22] GM: [1d20+5] => [8,5] = (13)

[10:37:38] GM: Kain, you wipe out a trio of targets
[10:37:45] GM: Nyx, you do as well
[10:37:54] GM: Sarah
[10:38:28] 2Lt. Sarah fires another 15 missiles as well, hoping to clear out some more of one of the arcs. [1d20+3] => [2,3] = (5)
[10:38:31] 2Lt. Sarah: (( … ))
[10:38:32] 2Lt. Sarah: (( ouch ))

[10:54:28] GM: [((6d6)+6)*2] => 46
[10:54:37] GM: Nyx you take some minimal damage
[10:55:37] GM: The captain of the ship comes on the radio "All craft rither get inside or mag lock to the hull, you have 10 seconds!"
[10:55:51] GM: Ay in the bay
[10:56:29] GM: Last target is on you, it'll be a hard shot since it's so close, the Cyclone security detachemtn are angling for a clear shot as well

[10:56:37] Cpt. Aylanea: [(4d8*10)+(2d8*10)+(2d4*10)] => 290 damage
[10:58:04] GM: you take out the target, and a fair bit of the overhead as well
[10:58:30] GM: but, the bay is clear of hostiles and the bay doors have been closed to prevent anymore from entering
[10:58:39] GM: Outside
[10:58:41] GM: Kain and Nyx
[11:00:28] WO Febrith Nyx flies back into the bay.
[11:00:54] Capt Kain Crockett mag locks next to the bay to provide covering fire.
[11:00:56] 2Lt. Sarah: (( mag lock you mean, the bay is closed. ))
[11:00:59] 2Lt. Sarah: (( hehe ))
[11:01:10] 2Lt. Sarah flies over to maglock onto the hull quickly.
[11:01:11] GM: Sarah
[11:02:56] GM: You alnd on teh hull and mag lock down and a few seonds later you feel the ship shiver and your sensors tell you that it has begun to accelerate away from the battlefield. The enemy cap ship is a flaming wreck and is being drawn into the gravity well and the invid fightercraft struggle to keep up, but their tiny engines cant hop to match the thrust put out by the Garfish's capital grade engines and they are easily outpaced.
[11:07:57] GM: once away from the enemy the fish's bay doors open to allow you back inside
[11:09:41] 2Lt. Sarah sighs and relaxes in her seat, settling her mecha into its parking place (or wherever else they say) and hopping out quickly.
[11:11:41] GM: The hanger bay is pretty thrashed, and there are still invid mecha parts strewn about. Medical crews have already removed the dead prior to you being let back in, but the blood stains on the deck tell you all you need to know
[11:11:44] Capt Kain Crockett sits back, "So anyone know what happened to our rescuee.
[11:12:05] 2Lt. Sarah: "If he's in the medical area, I'd hope he's safe."
[11:12:27] GM: he is still in sick bay, but other, more wounded patiants have trumped his leg (which had pretty much been nadaged up anayway bfore the shooting started.
[11:12:59] GM: ((I will stop it here))
