[07:42:11] Narrator: Throughout the Fleet, groups of officers from Personnel move from unit to unit, Looking thru files, records and combat footage. (dt)
[07:44:16] Narrator: Their task, directed to them from the Ambassadors Officer, is to locate those troopers worthy of decoration, and so award them. The Ambassador recognizes that, in times like this, the UEEF needs heroes, hell, they need anything to boost morale.
[07:45:58] Narrator: As the week progresses these Officers make their way from ship to ship, unit to unit, and take their notes. Of course, in the process some bad apples are indeed found, and expelled from the ranks, but this fact, while known, is hushed up.
[07:47:09] Narrator: In time the records are vetted, making sure that so and so indeed did such and such.
[07:47:35] Narrator: And the UEEF begins awarding overdue citations.
[07:49:20] Narrator: Aboard the Phoenix, as the members of the 33rd MEU's Raider Detachment (Provisional) arrive at the ships massive proving grounds a cadre of UEEF brass arrives as well…
[07:50:36] Narrator: Two new faces, (Lee and Gage) also arrive, led by Lt. Utenaru, who is giving them their in-brief and tour of their new digs all in one.
[07:51:48] Lt.Utenaru: Okay…watch your step cherries. Okay, over here is the proving grounds, it's a variable grav area so watch your footing, also, stay the hell OFF the flight line if your aren't inside a mecha, last thing I need is to write a letter home because you got stomped on.
[07:53:51] GM: Ahead of you you see a large enclosed test area, roughly a mile square.
[07:54:25] Lee takes it in and pays attention.
[07:54:39] GM: Massive elevators lead to the surface (i.e. the Deck of the mothership) much like those found aboard blue water CVN's
[07:55:53] GM: You, and most others are in a pressurized area, akin to an overly large Base Ops, and you note that all troopers out on the flight line and test area are all in CVR-3 and the area seems to be in null grav at the moment.
[07:56:30] GM: Over the flight line you can see two massive hatches are open to space as the massive frame of a Ikazuchi floats past.
[07:57:32] Lt.Utenaru: Out there is the 'Playground' if you need to head out there, you suit up. Due to power constraints, all areas that can be without life support, will be without life support. You copy that?
[07:59:54] Lee: Aye. Aye.
[08:00:02] Lt.Utenaru nods
[08:00:18] Lt.Utenaru points to the locker room.
[08:00:34] Lt.Utenaru: Off you go, I'll meet you outside Hatch 14.
[08:00:38] Gage follows along, noting the area
[08:01:23] Lee goes where told and looks around as doing so.
[08:01:35] Narrator: The others have already made their way onto the Playground.
[08:02:05] Gage heads to locker
[08:02:27] GM: (Free RP for the oldie but goodies)
[08:03:41] Lee suits up in the locker room then goes to meet the Lt. where indicated.
[08:04:08] Lt.Utenaru taps her foot on the deck and looks at her CVR's chrono.
[08:04:14] Lt.Utenaru: What you do, take a nap?
[08:04:25] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *snickers* ))
[08:04:57] Gage suits up as well and soon exits
[08:05:00] Lee: No ma'am…
[08:05:15] Anthony: (( lol ))
[08:06:53] Lt.Utenaru motions for you to follow her, tapping her leg to indicate you should switch on your mag clamps.
[08:07:16] 2Lt. Aylanea looks around a little bit quietly, curious to see what the rookies are like.
[08:07:17] Lee does so.
[08:07:20] Gage does so and follows
[08:08:26] Narrator: Unlike the magnetic boots of yore, the new UEEF version use banks of magnets, not one large one for the entire sole, this way, wearers do not loose mobility, and generally avoid the 'Ski Boot' effect.
[08:09:43] Narrator: As she leads on you note various mecha from TDF Bioroids, to some of the newer models fielded by the Masters on Earth before the ASC kicked their ass, and before the Invid arrived.
[08:11:13] Narrator: Nearby you see Alpha's and Beta's; pride of the UEEF. Some have armor packs, most do not. Interceptor Battloids share space with Condors, Conbats and other fixed wing non transformable craft.
[08:11:18] Lee try to adjust to the mag boots as best able. not use to space ops Just yet, he was learning though..
[08:12:16] Narrator: In all, it is an mish-mash of mecha, heck, there are even old (really old) ASC models, (most without armor plate).
[08:12:46] Lt.Utenaru notes Lee.
[08:12:53] Lt.Utenaru: Just walk normal, the boot will do the rest.
[08:12:56] Gage walks along and wonders how this mish of mechs work out
[08:13:10] Lee: Yes ma'am….
[08:13:55] Lt.Utenaru: Just don't jump, the boot will register you want to and will disengage, if you don't have a Cyclone or an EVA pack, it'll take you a while to get back down.
[08:14:06] Lt.Utenaru laughs a deep hearty Samoan laugh
[08:15:41] Lt.Utenaru: Right then
[08:16:12] Lt.Utenaru: Right now, to be honest with you, the Major doesn't know exactly where to place you, but new folks is new folks so…
[08:16:14] Lee gets the hang of it and moves along.
[08:17:26] Gage quirks a brow but dislikes being treated like an FNG
[08:17:32] Lt.Utenaru: Since you two have had more planetside experience then most of our pilots, we'll start you off small. You'll be trained up on a new gadget off the lines.
[08:17:46] Lt.Utenaru: Something that is sure to piss the Haydonites off.
[08:17:48] Lt.Utenaru snickers.
[08:18:44] Lee: Yes ma'am… What is it ma'am?
[08:19:07] Lt.Utenaru: Also, and yeah, I know it sucks, but, you will be pegged for security detail every now and then by the SP's. Don't feel singled out, all of us are pulling double duty. See those pilots out there?
[08:19:25] Lt.Utenaru points to a slender woman entering a Alpha.
[08:19:36] Lee: yes ma'am…
[08:19:48] Lt.Utenaru: When they aren't here, they have to pull CAP duty, so, we all gettin screwed.
[08:21:36] Gage nods "Understood, nothing new"
[08:22:05] Lt.Utenaru: Okay, enough hot air out of me. You keiki's have any questions?
[08:22:26] Lee.. nods in understanding.. having been in a resistance group.
[08:23:32] Lee: none ma'am.
[08:23:46] Lt.Utenaru looks at Gage
[08:23:48] Lt.Utenaru: You?
[08:26:05] Gage shakes his head "No ma'am"
[08:27:01] Lt.Utenaru: All right, well then, here is your new toy.
[08:27:22] Lee looks with interest.
[08:28:58] Lt.Utenaru pats the wall, but it really isn't the wall.
[08:30:49] Lee looks it over. "Very large and tankish ma'am.. designed for hauling mecha on the ground?"
[08:31:21] Lt.Utenaru: The larger versions yes, this little one here…is a recon variant.
[08:31:47] Lee nods..
[08:32:06] Gage nods
[08:33:09] Lt.Utenaru walks you around the vehicle, pointing out key features.
[08:33:31] Lee pays keen attention…
[08:34:58] Gage walks around with his hands clasps behind his back
[08:35:00] Lt.Utenaru: The Sierra here has a crew of 15, and can hold upwards of 32 troops. It can also hold two Silverback, about six of those new Garlands, and two Battloids, on top of Cyclone for the troops.
[08:35:25] Lt.Utenaru: It also has enough parts and ammo to support eight larger mecha in the field.
[08:35:51] Gage: "A general home away from home, peachy"
[08:36:45] Lt.Utenaru: This bad boy tops out at 325 in a flat run, can hover up to 750 feet in a standard 1G environment, and can toddle along in the air at around 200 miles an hour.
[08:36:59] Lt.Utenaru: It can also tackle space and underwater.
[08:37:36] Lee: It carry repair gear to repair mecha in the field, ma'am? My main specialty is mecha and vehicle repair..
[08:37:49] Lt.Utenaru: Yes it does.
[08:38:18] Lee nods.
[08:39:37] Lee: what's it's depth tolerance assuming a 1G environment ma'am?
[08:39:47] Lt.Utenaru: It's armed well too, has a pair of Gatling lasers, effective out to 4 miles, some point defense rail guns and particle beam turret. Also has a 24 shot missile launcher for when you have to reach out and crush someone.
[08:40:47] Lt.Utenaru: Hmmm, specs say around 2 miles down, but, I'd rather not test that.
[08:42:54] Lee: Hiding underwater was a good way to ditch the Invid on earth, was why i was asking ma'am.. he looks embarrassed.. I'd hope I didn't have to test that either ma'am..
[08:43:11] Lt.Utenaru nods
[08:43:38] Lt.Utenaru: Slick tactic if I do say so myself.
[08:44:20] Lee nods…
[08:44:28] Lt.Utenaru: Just remember, out here, the Regent had Inorganics, and those soulless killers could reach almost any depth we could.
[08:44:50] Lt.Utenaru: Not to many of them left around, but, we've seen them pop up here and there.
[08:45:51] Lee: Learned of those in basic ma'am…. Happy they aren't as smart as the living Invid… ma'am.
[08:46:19] Lt.Utenaru: Nope, dumb as dirt, except the Cougars, those are devious lil bastards!
[08:46:52] UEEF Sgt. trots over.
[08:47:19] UEEF Sgt. : Ell tee, you seen umm..your Raider group, unit, people?
[08:47:33] Gage touches the vehicle, feeling it
[08:47:48] Lt.Utenaru: That Marine Raiders Sergeant! And yes, they're over there.
[08:47:50] Lt.Utenaru points
[08:48:26] UEEF Sgt. : Thanks ma'am.
[08:48:31] UEEF Sgt. salutes and trots off
[08:49:07] Narrator: ((Going to power thru this part, bear with me.))
[08:49:42] Narrator: The Sergeant gathers the Raiders in one and pairs telling them that their presence has been requested on the 'Ops Hut'
[08:50:38] Narrator: As they make their way as directed they can see a 'Dog and Pony' show waiting for them, complete with a well ranked Tirolian.
[08:51:48] Narrator: Put quite on the spot, those that fought on Tirol are asked to form up, while others in the unit and others nearby gather to see what the fuss is all about.
[08:52:22] Lt. Jaron forms up
[08:52:34] CWO Sarah forms up quickly, glancing around.
[08:53:03] 2Lt. Aylanea quickly scrambles into form up with the others, looking around.
[08:53:19] Anthony pushes through to the formation, finding himself next to Sarah he attempts to subtly switch placing one or two people between them.
[08:53:29] Harley Matthews, dressed in the uniform of a UEEF Lt attached to the 79th Combat Camera stands with a slightly smug look on her face and nods at Jaron as he passes her.
[08:53:39] Harley Matthews: Told you I'd find out where you worked.
[08:54:15] Narrator: Anthony is gently escorted out of line, and directed to the other onlookers.
[08:54:24] Lt. Jaron smirks "didn't doubt it"
[08:54:40] Harley Matthews: Should have just given me the story then.
[08:55:54] Lt. Jaron: "all in good time ma'am"
[08:56:11] Lt. Jaron: (old=good)
[08:56:42] Narrator: Those that fought on Tirol during it's Fall…Sarah, Komillia, Gamjin, Suki, Ay, Lurana, and Jaron, are awarded the Titanium Medal of Valor.
[08:58:22] Narrator: Those that fought within the Heptac Basin, Sarah, Komillia, Suki, Jaron, and Lurana, are then awarded, by the Tirolian representative the Crux Pro Audacia and Aevum Servo.
[08:59:39] Narrator: The event is filmed by members of the 79th CC
[09:00:04] Lee: (k back))
[09:00:49] Narrator: The ceremony is brief, but effective, and after salutes are rendered there is a bout of back slapping from the onlookers and moral is indeed lifted.
[09:01:34] Harley Matthews walks up to the recipients and makes a 'Well?' motion with her hands.
[09:02:00] Lee can't help but feel extreme resentment toward the Tirolian representative as he watches the ceremony quietly….
[09:02:46] Lt. Jaron shakes her hand "You might make a decent detective one day"
[09:03:14] Lt. Ishida subdues her pride at receiving the awards, and steps back from the throng slightly.
[09:03:42] Harley Matthews: So, you game for an interview?
[09:04:00] Harley Matthews looks to the others signifying that the question was to all recipients.
[09:04:09] Lt. Jaron: "Now or a planned event?"
[09:04:34] Harley Matthews: Now, the planned event just happened. Thats why we're filming it
[09:05:46] Harley Matthews: Don't worry, all this is for the archives, Ambassador Minmei ordered the faces and names of recipients of high awards be censored.
[09:05:49] Lt. Jaron: "Meant another but anyways, sure"
[09:06:38] GM: (RP y'all)
[09:07:23] Harley Matthews: So then, Lt. Fairman, tell us a little about what happened in the Heptac Valley, sorry, Basin.
[09:07:54] CWO Sarah shrinks back a bit, staying near Suki, and glancing about a little bit nervously.
[09:11:05] Lt. Jaron goes into little details but honors the legionnaires and the death of their CO Tanis
[09:11:14] Lt. Ishida fingers the TMH on Sarah's chest.
[09:11:24] Lt. Ishida : Glad they gave this to you too.
[09:11:45] Harley Matthews nods and asks the standard questions.
[09:12:00] Harley Matthews: Okay, enough boiler plate, I want some real from the heart stuff.
[09:13:06] Lt. Jaron: "Its was pretty dire to say the least. We was out of radio contact for awhile"
[09:13:17] Harley Matthews: You was?
[09:13:28] GM: ((sorry couldn't resist))
[09:14:27] Lt. Jaron nods
[09:14:30] GM: Any more RP or shall I just move forward?
[09:15:26] GM: I'll leave the floor open for another 10 while I check on something.
[09:16:57] CWO Sarah blushes a little at Suki and smiles for just a moment.
[09:17:01] CWO Sarah: (( ah. ))
[09:17:17] CWO Sarah quiets down then, just looking around curiously again.
[09:17:32] Lt. Jaron: "The Haydonites showed us a new side as well, ground forces. They were shocktroopers in my opinion."
[09:19:34] Harley Matthews: And it was those troops that fired the hamlet north of Anver'sa?
[09:20:16] Lt. Jaron nods
[09:20:53] Harley Matthews nods and then turns to Sarah.
[09:21:04] Harley Matthews: So, Would you like to add anything?
[09:22:17] Lt. Jaron: "no ma'am"
[09:22:31] Lt. Ishida prods Sarah with her elbow as if to say, 'go on'.
[09:29:11] CWO Sarah blinks a little bit at that, not used to being put on the spot like that. She pauses as she's elbowed by Suki, looking back and giving her a look and roll of eyes for elbowing, before looking back. "I'd concur that they were shock troopers, really. There really isn't much to add. Certainly was interesting being declared presumed dead for a while, while clearances were updated after."
[09:29:46] Harley Matthews: Presumed dead?
[09:30:42] CWO Sarah laughs just a little. "Well, contact was lost in a territory that was getting overrun, after all."
[09:31:04] Lt. Ishida: Hai, Haydonite jamming. Command listed us as MIA when we couldn't check in.
[09:31:35] Harley Matthews: I see
[09:32:04] Narrator: The interviews take a little longer before the gathering brakes up.
[09:32:29] Narrator: And then, the gathering breaks up…
[09:33:32] Narrator: The Next Day:
[09:33:58] Narrator: The Raider folk are again on the "Playground"
[09:34:16] GM: Let me know which Mecha you are futzing with today.
[09:35:43] Narrator: Meanwhile Gage and Lee have been plopped into VR-052 Cyclone (your choice of weaponry) and are on SP duty
[09:36:23] Lt. Jaron looks over a garland
[09:36:45] Narrator: (Well, if you want to be in a VR-040 we can swing that too)
[09:36:45] 2Lt. Aylanea is peeking over one of the Super Alphas, checking to see what all the toys are, and what it can do, interestedly.
[09:37:20] Narrator: [1d4] =>  = (2)
[09:37:22] CWO Sarah is generally peeking over another Garland herself, idly, more curious than anything.
[09:37:51] Lee: No the Battler is ok…
[09:37:55] Lt. Ishida continues her secret love affair with the Super Alpha
[09:38:03] Gage stands guard with ion in his 050
[09:38:07] CWO Sarah: (( *tickles Suki* ))
[09:39:46] Lee stands guard and tries to keep alert though he can't help peeking at Sarah. now and again.
[09:39:48] CWO Sarah eventually wanders away from the Garland anyway, towards one of the heavy armed Betas, peeking at it, knowing she'll need it at some point.
[09:40:24] Lt. Ishida notes Sarah's wandering.
[09:40:31] Lt. Ishida : Well, pick one hon.
[09:41:24] Anthony wanders about the Alphas. He rubs the back of his neck.
[09:43:06] CWO Sarah laughs a little at Suki and rolls her eyes. "I will. I was just looking. Since it can't fit, and it means I'd be without heavy support, I'm not so interested in the Garlands anyway." She checks over the big Super Beta and hops into it, checking the controls, relaxing.
[09:45:01] 2Lt. Aylanea has meanwhile wandered under and around one of the Alphas, before climbing up into the seat.
[09:45:13] Narrator: As the Alphas and Legios undergo a training flight Jaron gets his bearing in the Garland, a fast machine, beefier, but still a lil cumbersome when compared to the tiny by comparison Cyclones.
[09:46:06] Narrator: PERC rolls for those in the air only please.
[09:46:20] Lt. Ishida : [1d20+5] => [14,5] = (19)
[09:48:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20+1] => [5,1] = (6)
[09:48:17] CWO Sarah: [1d20+1] => [17,1] = (18)
[09:48:18] Anthony: PERC [1d20+4] => [6,4] = (10)
[09:49:33] GM: The pair of eagle eyed vixens in the Legios notice in the distance, about 1000 klicks off the Phoenix's Port quarter a bout 12 pinpricks of light, most likely defolds.
[09:50:22] GM: a few seconds later, beneath them they see the massive turrets of the Ikazuchi they are overflying begin to turn in that direction, seconds later, the entire fleet opens up!
[09:50:51] GM: Inside the 'Playground' the massive hatches seal up as alarm klaxons sound.
[09:51:05] CWO Sarah blinks a little as the fleet opens up, glancing to Suki.
[09:51:58] Anthony: "This never gets old." Anthony clicks through his command as he says into the radio.
[09:52:01] Comm Transmission: All craft all craft Enemy defold 1000 miles bearing two niner five! Weapons free expedite!
[09:52:47] Maj. Kavashera breaks thru on the Squad channel
[09:53:01] Lee: (lee hears the comm-traffic…. and groans)
[09:53:51] Maj. Kavashera: Not you cats and kittens, you let the BARCAP do their job.
[09:54:27] Lt. Ishida : Roger that. Hitman 1 to flight, hold position here.
[09:54:29] Lt. Ishida grumbles
[09:55:23] Narrator: some distance away the fight unfolds, and soon the sky is filled with rippling explosions. (Sensory Equipment rolls pilots)
[09:55:25] Lt. Jaron moves in the garland battloid mode and watches the hatch as the comms run amok
[09:55:50] Gage grips the ion blaster tightly and listens
[09:56:16] Narrator: Within the Battloid mode of the Garland Jaron smiles, yes, the machine might be a little ungainly, but an armor plated cockpit, thats always a plus!
[09:56:20] Anthony: Sensory Equip [1d100] =>  = (47) vs. 60%
[09:56:49] Lee pats his M21 and checks his EP-37
[09:56:59] Lt. Ishida : [1d100] =>  = (34) vs 68%
[09:57:09] CWO Sarah: [1d100] =>  = (13)
[09:57:19] CWO Sarah: (( vs 65 ))
[09:57:25] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d100] =>  = (15)
[09:57:47] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( vs. 63 ))
[09:59:09] Narrator: All those in the air see the same thing on their sensors. A multitude of friendly fighters heading out to meet the foe along with missiles launched by the Shimikazes. You see the Diakasho, the massive Tokugawa Class Battleship turn and make it's way towards the enemy flanked by the Miyuki and Asagiri.
[10:00:25] Narrator: But, within all of that, you see something less heartening! You see no less than 20 inbound tracks, these tracks are approaching at near Mach 15
[10:01:52] GM: Those tracks will be with you soon, free action and then init.
[10:03:25] GM: guys?
[10:03:29] GM: free action
[10:03:35] GM: chop chop
[10:03:54] CWO Sarah blinks at the inbound tracks, checking missile distance and adjusting for range, swearing very softly and hurrying to get SRMs online.
[10:04:08] Anthony snaps to a barrel roll and breaks from the squad, returning to fly right underneath them. Shadow style.
[10:04:29] 2Lt. Aylanea turns in towards the enemies, checking for the missile and gun controls, lining up the missiles and getting ready, staying with the formation however.
[10:05:47] Lt. Ishida maneuvers her mecha to face the enemy inbounds then links the unit in.
[10:05:50] Lt. Ishida : [1d100] =>  = (33)
[10:06:21] Lt. Jaron waits patiently like the rest of the crew around
[10:07:12] GM: Suki is successful all craft have the Command Alpha bonuses of +2 Init, +2 strike, +3 parry dodge.
[10:07:24] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( woo! ))
[10:08:02] Lee waits annoyed at the toasters for not giving him time to settle in and eager to take it out of their metallic hides…..
[10:09:10] GM: The inbounds tracks split up, 2 head for the UES Samantha Porter (Ikazuchi) 2 head for the UES Achilles 1 each for two Tirolian Destroyers and the rest towards the Phoenix
[10:09:35] GM: [1d20+8] => [3,8] = (11)
[10:09:35] GM: [1d20+8] => [6,8] = (14)
[10:09:36] GM: [1d20+8] => [19,8] = (27)
[10:09:36] GM: [1d20+8] => [1,8] = (9)

[10:09:38] GM: [1d20+8] => [20,8] = (28)
[10:10:16] UEEF: [1d20-14] => [1,-14] = (-13)

[10:11:51] GM: The inbound targets, now visible, are about the size of a Horizon-T bunker, with a ominous dark grey and red highlighted body
[10:13:08] GM: Two hit the Porter but her PPB's are able to deflect the blow. One misses the Achilles and impacts an unfortunate garfish tearing the ship in half as the massive bunker shaped craft careens out of control then explodes.
[10:13:47] GM: The second craft hits the Achilles amidships and the carriers central flight deck is engulfed in flame.
[10:14:35] GM: Both Tirolian Destroyers are hit one sees it's engineering section torn away, the other explodes as the (nat 20) craft finds the ammo magazine and detonates.
[10:15:17] Gage swallows at hearing the details over the com
[10:15:40] CWO Sarah stares as she sees that, frowning.
[10:15:56] Lee's too focused to worry, he'll be scared later.
[10:16:13] GM: Pilots roll percs please
[10:16:23] CWO Sarah: [1d20+1] => [13,1] = (14)

[10:19:19] GM: 10+ on a Perc notices that the bunker sized craft seem to have shields, as friendly fighters and cap ship point defense fire is absorbed.
[10:20:11] Jess : (i guess a super Legios whats the rest of the squad in?
[10:20:36] GM: Of course this doesn't tell you how strong the shields are, since most shots from fighters were snap and glancing, and the PD arrays only had a second to hit before impact
[10:21:32] GM: The remaining craft home in on the Mothership.
[10:23:01] GM: The Phoenix is hampered by the rest of the fleet and is forced to hold her fire lest missed shots hit an ally. However some of her large guns are able to get an angle and attempt to swat the incoming craft from the air.
[10:23:19] Anthony: (( me in an alpha Jess and I think Ishida is a super Alpha, Sarah a super beta, the rest in fish or cyclones. ))

[10:27:02] GM: The Phoenix is rocked by explosions, inside, it is like a massive earthquake!
[10:27:41] Lt. Jaron: (at playground in garland)
[10:28:28] Lee think: Oh great!!! just like an old episode of Star Trek… Sigh… He stands at his post unless told to leave.
[10:28:39] GM: In the playground you are all thrown to the ground. as you pick yourself up, you can see a Horizon Bunker looking thing embedded in the deck, above it, a gaping hole from it's impact.
[10:28:52] GM: Init please
[10:29:13] CWO Sarah: (( bwa. star trek. heehee. Star Trek Camera Shake ftw ))

[10:29:54] Lt. Ishida : ((LOL))
[10:30:00] Anthony: [1d20+4] => [16,4] = (20)

[10:36:18] GM: Okay, here we go
[10:36:55] GM: In the Playground, as you pick yourselves up, there is a noticeable vibration, (Percs)…
[10:37:00] GM: Gage and Lee ONLY

[10:38:14] GM: HAX! Same roll from the same ISP!!!
[10:38:14] GM: HAX
[10:38:26] CWO Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:38:27] Lt. Jaron: (haha)
[10:39:25] GM: Gage and Jaron see what the fuss is about, the vibrations are from a series of explosive bolts running up the side of the bunker looking thing..
[10:40:28] GM: There is a series of p.p..p.p.p.p..p.p.pops! then a large shudder (remember no sound in space) and the mid section of the bunker splits open as two sections of the hull blow apart.
[10:40:39] GM: roll dodge all y'all in the Playground
[10:40:51] GM: [1d20-8] => [13,-8] = (5)

[10:43:46] GM: Lee I'm going to give you a blanket +7 across the board for now, you have you PP and I'm sure some HtH in there, so.
[10:44:07] Lee: ((Okies))
[10:44:08] GM: so an Unat 20 for you
[10:44:13] Lt. Fallnya: (is lee not done with his char?)
[10:44:16] GM: Wow, all unat 20's
[10:44:19] GM: or above
[10:45:23] GM: All three of you are able to avoid the flying clamshell as it flies past, the other heads away from you and is a moot point.
[10:45:52] Lt. Fallnya: (we're fighting Invid?)
[10:46:23] CWO Sarah: (( naw, it's a horizon bunker sized thing that crashed through the roof and blew apart. ))
[10:46:51] GM: From within a coil of legs unfurls and a Haydonite Revenant emerges from the craft.
[10:47:02] Lee: ((opens like the super dome))
[10:47:20] GM: No, more like the sides jettisoning off of a cluster bomb
[10:47:43] Lee: ((oh))
[10:47:49] Lt. Jaron: "oh crud"
[10:48:05] GM: About 10 Reavers join the party behind the Revenant
[10:48:20] GM: HF Lee and Gage
[10:48:37] GM: target to beat is a 14
[10:48:40] Lee: [1d20] =>  = (5)

[10:49:45] GM: Need a Horror Factor roll from ya
[10:50:01] Gage: [1d20] =>  = (3)
[10:50:22] GM: Jaron, you see Lee and Gage freeze up as the Haydonites deploy.
[10:51:13] Lt. Jaron uses loud speaker and a high decibel "Snap out of it soldiers!!"
[10:51:29] GM: The loudspeaker is useless in the vacuum of space
[10:51:45] GM: In space, no one can hear you scream.
[10:52:06] Lt. Fallnya: (would have to use the comm)
[10:52:15] CWO Sarah: (( lolololol))
[10:52:20] Lt. Jaron: (roger that)
[10:52:23] GM: I'm just going to say you use your comms,
[10:52:47] GM: they will be able to act next attack, but they lose one (they can still dodge parry) for now
[10:53:09] GM: In Spaaaaaace, percs pilots please.
[10:53:18] GM: and RSI if you so choose
[10:53:41] Anthony: PERC [1d20+4] => [5,4] = (9)

[10:55:16] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (11) perc [1d100] =>  = (27) RSI
[10:55:23] Lee: Will looks for cover to blast from behind (once getting his wits: when gets his concentration again, hell use his mechanical knowledge to find weak points to blast)
[10:55:31] GM: tony give me a RSI
[10:56:01] Anthony: (( I don't have it.. ))

[10:56:47] Anthony: [1d100] =>  = (20) vs. 60%
[10:57:49] GM: Those who made their RSI or, failing that, made a Perc over 15 notice that there are a few of those bunker sized craft embedded in the hull along the side of the mothership, some deeper then others.
[10:58:25] CWO Sarah: (( heehee ))
[10:58:40] GM: And that Haydonite forces are likewise deploying out of them. 1 Revenant and 10 Reavers each, for 6 and 60
[10:59:06] Lt. Fallnya makes a comm to command "Boarders on the mothership, are we to move to assist?" (that is unless she sees wraiths?)
[10:59:13] Lt. Fallnya: (or other flyer)
[10:59:58] GM: okay, the init order (using reverse init is, H, H, gage, H, H, Suki, Jaron, Lee, H, Lu, H, Ay, Sarah, Tony
[11:00:27] UEEF: Enemy troops have entered the base! Enemy troops have entered th…….
[11:00:50] Lee: ((LOLOLOL!!!!))
[11:01:01] Lee: (SW FTW!!)
[11:01:08] Haydonite: I will knock out the control tower in the hanger bay i find myself in.
[11:01:13] Lt. Fallnya turns to Suki and nods at her out the canopy "All fighter craft move to assist the Phoenix!"
[11:01:13] Haydonite: [1d20+4] => [12,4] = (16)
[11:01:45] Haydonite: I will shoot at some of these pitiful humans on the flight deck I find myself upon.
[11:02:06] Haydonite: (1-2 Gage, 3-4 Lee, 5-6 Jaron)
[11:02:09] Haydonite: [1d6] =>  = (4)
[11:02:12] Haydonite: [1d20+6] => [7,6] = (13)
[11:02:15] Lee: ((Man they sound depressed)
[11:02:23] CWO Sarah: (( *giggles at the announcement* ))
[11:03:05] GM: The Revenant opens up with is main gun and blows a hole through the control tower that keeps on going for a bout 2000ft
[11:03:20] GM: Lee, you are being fired upon!
[11:03:49] Lee: [1d20+7] => [5,7] = (12)
[11:03:49] GM: Remember, it's reverse init, if you have higher you can interrupt the lower
[11:04:04] GM: You are hit
[11:04:33] Lee: uses action point
[11:04:43] GM: To?
[11:07:03] Lee: ok to dodge.
[11:07:27] Lee: [1d20+7] => [5,7] = (12)
[11:07:38] GM: which is a +10 to dodge, making your roll an unat 22
[11:07:49] GM: you dodge the incoming rounds
[11:08:08] Lt. Fallnya: (AP?)
[11:08:44] GM: Action Points
[11:08:54] GM: Gage, your turn.
[11:08:55] Lt. Fallnya: (i don't recall those….)
[11:09:13] GM: ah, but you is afraid so, only Defense for you,
[11:09:42] GM: Outside you pilot types see one of the Revenant boring it's way thru the hull like a Alabama tick!
[11:09:45] Lee: ((you should they'll save your tush))
[11:10:09] GM: Suki
[11:10:20] Lt. Ishida : Roger that lead!
[11:10:53] Lt. Ishida says in response to Lurana's command as she pulls her craft hard over towards the Phoenix. She will fire on the Revenant. 8 missiles.
[11:11:11] Lt. Ishida : [1d20+3] => [7,3] = (10)
[11:11:21] Gage moves away from Lee and his ion at a Reaver (to strike [1d20+5] => [18,5] = (23))
[11:11:45] Haydonite: Missiles incoming/approaching. Engage/destroy!!
[11:11:50] Gage: [4d6] => [2,4,2,5] = (13) MD
[11:12:05] Lee: (cough HF)
[11:12:12] GM: hold your attack gage, you were startled, you lost your first attack
[11:12:29] CWO Sarah: (( er, Gage, you're only allowed to take defensive action this turn. Not shoot. ))
[11:12:39] Haydonite: [1d20+4] => [12,4] = (16)
[11:12:46] Haydonite: [1d100] =>  = (36)
[11:14:34] GM: Half the missiles are shot down Suki, roll damage for 4 missiles.
[11:15:12] GM: [8d6*10] => 280
[11:15:49] GM: The missiles lance forth, and lose half their number the remaining shots impact, and are absorbed by the Revenant's Shields.
[11:15:52] GM: Jaron
[11:19:05] Lt. Jaron charges forth and aims at a Reaver's head and uses com "Gage, Lee; cover the exit; don't let them get any farther" (to strike, called shot [1d20] =>  = (7); I can't look at site so don't know damage)
[11:19:33] Lt. Jaron: (doesn't matter, missed)
[11:19:58] Lt. Fallnya: (what gun you firing i just happen to be there lol
[11:20:24] GM: what are your bonuses Jaron, you have your cyc's +'s
[11:20:53] Lt. Jaron: (called shot don't get bonuses unless you house ruled them)
[11:21:40] Lt. Fallnya: (they do if you aim but that burns extra attacks

[11:24:12] GM: Your shot goes wide Jaron, but, lucky you, the Reaver likes your gumption and turns to play with you!
[11:24:40] GM: Lee your turn (Defensive or non combat action only, still scared)
[11:26:43] Lee: [1d20+7] => [7,7] = (14)
[11:26:48] Lee tries to block the entrance as best he can while being all defensive to avoid being hit…
[11:27:18] GM: Haydonites, your go
[11:27:39] Haydonite: Human meat sac blocking egress/exit. Terminate/kill!
[11:27:52] Haydonite: [1d20+7] => [9,7] = (16)
[11:28:12] Haydonite: Negative! Bypass/avoid!
[11:28:29] Haydonite: I will bowl the human over on my way inside the enemy ship!

[11:29:24] GM: hit
[11:29:32] GM: [1d4*10+15] => 55
[11:30:03] GM: Your cyclone takes 55 main body damage just as the second Reaver closes the distance and quite literally picks you up and tosses you to the side like a rag doll.
[11:30:32] GM: Lurana
[11:31:04] Lee: ((Putts head in hands : not my day with DRs)
[11:31:18] UEEF: Haydonites in the hanger bay! We need help up here!
[11:31:59] Lt. Fallnya will have started to turn the Legios towards the Revenant (the big shielded sun of a bitch), throttling to my fighter to the maximum +2 dodge -2 strike, and opened up with all guns on it trying to draw its weapons off the ship
[11:32:07] Comm Transmission: Jesus! Second wave inbound! CAP fighters, new picture! Knock out those torpedoes!!!

[11:33:45] GM: Roll damage Lurana, the Haydonite takes it while continuing it's work, only it's ass half is exposed.
[11:34:53] GM: Inside the hangar bay a secondary blast door closes to cover the breach caused by the torpedoes impact.
[11:35:22] GM: Take your time in the damage roll Lu, Ay, your action
[11:36:04] UEEF: Take the shot take the shot!

[11:36:42] UEEF: ((Battle chatter, for dramaz!))
[11:36:55] 2Lt. Aylanea turns in on the Revenant as well, firing eight missiles of her own trying to get it off the hull quickly.

[11:38:26] Lt. Fallnya: (470 damage to the Revenant's ass end
[11:39:37] GM: Lurana, your shots kill the shields that have been damaged by Suki's initial hit, and you inflict decent damage to his ass end, prompting his guards to fire upon Ay's spread.

[11:44:28] UEEF: I see them! Engaging!
[11:44:39] UEEF: Synchro cannon Synchro cannon! Take cover!
[11:45:18] CWO Sarah listens to the orders, and since she's right behind Suki, she locks four missiles onto one of the Revenant's guards, firing at it.
[11:45:21] CWO Sarah: [1d20+3] => [2,3] = (5)
[11:45:27] UEEF: Cover my starboard side, I need to get these fires under control!
[11:45:30] CWO Sarah: (( crud ))
[11:45:40] UEEF: Roger that Sammy, we have you're flanks!
[11:46:13] Lt. Fallnya watches the missiles fly off in random directions "Sarah im gona have to take you rmissiles away if you keep random firing…"
[11:47:13] GM: roll damage Sarah, and quarter it
[11:47:22] GM: Tony! Your go
[11:47:25] Anthony flew underneath the squad for the purpose of protecting their flanks and rear. He aims and fires a nose laser at the target Sarah intended. Clicking on his comm "There is too much chatter, what are our objectives." [1d20+9] => [10,9] = (19) Strike
[11:47:44] GM: [1d20] =>  = (4)
[11:47:50] GM: Roll damage Tony!
[11:48:11] Lt. Ishida : Stay on target! On the hull! On the hull!
[11:48:16] Anthony: [4d8*2] => 64 For Link.
[11:48:29] Lt. Fallnya: "Take out those Reavers and Revenants" she speaks to tony directly.
[11:48:53] GM: Haydonites
[11:49:30] Haydonite: I will lay cover fire for my ground troops entry to the ships insides.
[11:49:34] Haydonite: [1d20+6] => [8,6] = (14)
[11:49:50] UEEF: [1d20+6] => [15,6] = (21)
[11:50:43] Haydonite: I will fire at the enemy still inside the hanger bay.
[11:50:47] Haydonite: [1d6] =>  = (2)
[11:50:54] Lt. Fallnya: "I think I'm getting used to this Legios gunship finally."
[11:51:10] Haydonite: gage
[11:51:25] Haydonite: [1d20+7] => [19,7] = (26)
[11:52:18] CWO Sarah: [2d6*10] => 50 for my damage btw
[11:52:53] Gage dashes to the left to cover that flank of Lee (auto [1d20+9] => [13,9] = (22))
[11:53:25] GM: Sarah missiles impact the hull doing more damage to it then the enemy, but the reavers are pelted by light fragmentation
[11:53:36] GM: gage is hit!
[11:53:40] CWO Sarah: (( … ))
[11:53:44] CWO Sarah: (( rar ))
[11:53:51] GM: [1d4*10+15] => 55
[11:54:09] GM: 55 points to his side as the Haydonite tracks your move and lights you up!
[11:54:17] GM: Gage your attack!
[11:55:25] Gage skips from the hit and turns, returning fire at the enemy (to strike [1d20+6] => [2,6] = (8), [4d6] => [6,5,5,5] = (21) MD)
[11:55:44] Lt. Fallnya: (auto miss ouch)
[11:56:00] GM: gage your shots go wide and long!
[11:56:32] GM: The two Haydonites that threw lee out of the way proceed into base ops gunning down anything that moves.
[11:57:30] GM: Suki
[11:58:07] Lt. Ishida following orders, she lays into the Revenant, all guns!
[11:58:20] Lee: ((awaiting my action.. and Lee is pissed now… rather then scared)…
[11:58:28] Lt. Ishida : [1d20+11] => [20,11] = (31)
[11:58:33] Lt. Ishida : YATA!!!!
[11:58:47] GM: Don''t bother with damage
[11:58:52] Lt. Fallnya: (that could be painful if shes using similar loadout to me )
[11:59:52] GM: Suki rounds quite literally ALL impact on target and the Revenant detonates in a fiery explosion that tosses 4 of it's Reaver guards into space, shredded by the detonation.
[12:00:04] GM: Jaron!
[12:00:24] GM: lee be next!
[12:00:41] Lt. Fallnya: "good kill, thank me later for lowering its shields for you" *sticking her tongue out at the woman before clicking off the comm
[12:01:47] Lee: ((how many Reavers left?))
[12:02:00] GM: 8 in the hanger bay, 2 inside base ops
[12:02:30] GM: Right now most of the Reavers are engaged with other UEEF so it's a background thing, so as not to totally clutter up game play
[12:03:52] Lee: My turn?
[12:04:07] GM: Jaron's still he needed some added info from me
[12:04:10] Lt. Jaron grumbles and turns charging at the Haydonites that entered; trying to do a double head lock (to strike [1d20+5] => [5,5] = (10))
[12:05:03] GM: [1d20+7] => [17,7] = (24)
[12:05:29] GM: You rush the trailing Reaver as it moves into base ops and grab it, but it shrugs you off and turns on you!
[12:05:42] GM: Lee, your turn, you see this occur not two feet from you
[12:07:04] GM: far to the side actually since he chucked you!
[12:07:38] GM: remember you do have GR-97's however, Jaron is right on top of him
[12:08:53] Lee (he's having a Khyron fit now.. LOL) in a cold calculating Rage level his EP-37 at the Reaver's head flicks to burst carefully aims and fires (figure aimed shot bonus for me)
[12:08:55] Lee: [1d20+7] => [7,7] = (14)
[12:09:45] GM: You miss the head, but hit the main body, the target does not get a dodge since it is being blindsided
[12:09:49] GM: roll damage
[12:12:27] Lee: [2d4*10] => 50
[12:13:12] GM: Your rounds tear a nice sized chink from it's midsection!
[12:14:58] GM: Outside, the remaining Reavers pile into the hole left over from the dead Revenant as the second one opens fire at (1-2 Ay 3-4 Tony, 5-6 Suki/Sarah) [1d6] =>  = (5) [1d20+7] => [9,7] = (16)
[12:15:18] GM: Suki dodge or DIEEE!!!
[12:15:42] Lt. Ishida : [1d20+18] => [10,18] = (28)
[12:16:12] Lt. Ishida yanks the HOTAS hard over and avoids the Synchro Cannon round!
[12:16:22] Lt. Ishida : Lu, your go!
[12:16:36] GM: Shush woman, I'm the GM, Lu, your go!
[12:18:57] Lt. Fallnya would lock on all 4 torpedoes firing 25 missiles at each flying full force between them regardless of damage impending to her self if this succeeds [1d20+3] => [13,3] = (16)
[12:19:09] Lt. Fallnya: (100 missiles in the air!
[12:19:13] GM: [1d20] =>  = (4)
[12:19:14] GM: [1d20] =>  = (12)
[12:19:14] GM: [1d20] =>  = (18)
[12:19:14] GM: [1d20] =>  = (7)
[12:19:20] GM: [1d100] =>  = (10)
[12:19:30] GM: [1d4] =>  = (4)
[12:19:32] Lt. Fallnya: (aww 1 manages to hit a few)
[12:19:49] GM: roll damage for 3 targets at 25 missiles each, roll damage for one target at 21 missiles
[12:20:06] GM: and brace for impact…
[12:20:18] Lt. Fallnya: [(2d6*10)*25] => 2250
[12:20:24] Lt. Fallnya: [(2d6*10)*21] => 2310
[12:20:26] Lt. Fallnya: [(2d6*10)*25] => 500
[12:20:26] Lt. Fallnya: [(2d6*10)*25] => 2250
[12:20:58] Lt. Fallnya: (wow 1 torpedo may survive unless its brothers explosions wipe it out to lol
[12:21:06] CWO Sarah: (( holy… ))
[12:21:08] GM: that one must have been the mother of all Yahtzee's and it was all ones
[12:22:07] GM: Three torpedoes are shredded, two of which do not detonated but instead spill out their troop complement which are in turn shredded into messy giblets.
[12:22:28] GM: One torp detonates!
[12:22:37] GM: [1d4*100] => 400
[12:22:49] GM: inflicting that to everything in a half mile radius
[12:23:16] Lt. Fallnya: (I'm alive, lol but will come out of the bloom of fire with shreds trailing
[12:24:10] GM: which is enough to crumple the engines of the squawker, causing it to fly off in random directions like a balloon expelling air.
[12:24:12] CWO Sarah: (( lol, nice ))
[12:24:37] GM: Lu, roll a 20, I will roll one for the errant torp, pray for a large spread.
[12:24:54] Lt. Fallnya: [1d20] =>  = (18)
[12:24:56] GM: [1d20] =>  = (1)
[12:25:25] GM: The torp doesn't even come close as it's reactant mass finally detonates, tearing the munition apart.
[12:25:29] Lt. Fallnya: (large enough?)
[12:25:35] GM: Ay your turn.
[12:25:59] GM: oh, roll a % there to Lu
[12:26:13] Lt. Fallnya comes flying out of the fire bloom, her Legios both ends looking like they have seen better days and just keeps going where ever [1d100] =>  = (12)
[12:26:23] Lt. Fallnya: (I'm assuming thats a pilot roll?)
[12:26:24] GM: you radar is gone
[12:27:22] Lt. Fallnya just keeps flying strait either way full steam (possible concussions knocked me out?)
[12:27:26] GM: Ay, your turn
[12:29:06] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( what's left? Reavers on the hull? ))
[12:29:40] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *is paying attention, just tough to keep track kinda* ))
[12:29:46] GM: one Revenant, and about half the Reavers, the other half have entered thru the hole the other Revenant and all your missiel and gun hits made
[12:29:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( great. ))
[12:30:17] GM: and it's fine if you cant keep track, thats the fog of war
[12:30:40] 2Lt. Aylanea flies in after the remaining Revenant, locking up ten missiles and firing them towards the big target, as quickly as possible, trying to get its shields down. [1d20+3] => [6,3] = (9)
[12:31:03] GM: [1d20+7] => [7,7] = (14)
[12:31:07] GM: [1d100] =>  = (51)
[12:31:37] GM: roll damage for half your missiles
[12:31:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: [10d6*10] => 380
[12:32:20] GM: The shields take it, and the Revenant is still up!
[12:32:27] GM: Sarah, your turn
[12:32:50] Lt. Fallnya: (is out of combat unfortunately for the moment
[12:33:04] CWO Sarah looks for the most dangerous target on the field, deciding as well that it's the revenant. She fires twelve missiles herself, in her concern about it. [1d20+3] => [15,3] = (18)
[12:33:17] GM: [1d20+7] => [7,7] = (14)
[12:33:36] GM: roll damage
[12:34:52] GM: Tony your action
[12:35:13] Anthony moves as directed and aims to fire using his EU-13 80mm at the Revenant. Strike [1d20+14] => [8,14] = (22)
[12:35:31] GM: [1d20+7] => [16,7] = (23)
[12:36:01] GM: The thing is more nimble the it would appear, and it sways to the side on it's legs, avoiding your shots!
[12:36:19] GM: Haydonite in bay!
[12:36:36] Haydonite: I turn my big gun, and point it at the deck, and fire.
[12:37:08] GM: The blast tears open a large hole in the deck exposing the city level below.
[12:37:51] CWO Sarah: [24d6*10] => 830
[12:37:59] CWO Sarah: (( *rolls her damage* ))
[12:38:01] GM: make that 2 dead outside
[12:38:24] GM: Tony, you may take another action, since Sarah killed the target you were shooting at anyway
[12:38:34] GM: bad Carrie!
[12:38:38] GM paddles
[12:38:40] CWO Sarah: (( sowwie ))
[12:38:46] Lt. Jaron: [1d100+7] => [80,7] = (87)
[12:38:52] GM: Tony, your go, do-over
[12:39:03] Anthony: (( sweet! ))
[12:39:15] Anthony: (( Any Revenant? ))
[12:39:50] Anthony attempts another shot at the target. Strike [1d20+14] => [4,14] = (18)
[12:40:03] GM: [1d20+7] => [10,7] = (17)
[12:40:17] GM: roll damage, you catch a Reaver unawares as it jumps into the hole.
[12:40:25] Anthony: (( Karma ))
[12:40:41] Anthony: [3d10] => [4,9,10] = (23)
[12:40:53] GM: what the hell is that?
[12:40:53] Anthony: (*100?)
[12:40:59] Anthony: EU-13 80mm
[12:41:25] GM: 2D4x10+30
[12:41:29] Lt. Fallnya: (you didn't fire a burst?)
[12:41:40] Lt. Fallnya: (2d4x10+30 with burst, 3d10 non burst)
[12:41:52] Anthony: [2d4*10+30] => 80
[12:41:59] GM: if you are firing single shots in here and not actually trying to snipe, then you fail at life and there is nothing i can do for you LOL
[12:42:08] Anthony: (( rofl ))
[12:42:49] GM: You fire kills the Reaver, finishing it off from the earlier splash damage it and his buddies have received by errant missile peppering the area
[12:42:50] Anthony: (( I can snipe.. ))
[12:43:22] GM: inside the bay, a bout 5 Reavers jump into the hole made by the Revenant and descend upon the city below
[12:43:27] GM: gage!
[12:45:15] Gage sighs and jumps in after them, firing a shot at the head of the last one in (called shot [1d20+1] => [4,1] = (5) [4d6] => [5,1,5,1] = (12) MD)
[12:45:30] GM: what are you shooting with?
[12:45:33] Gage: (hmm its our tech issue)
[12:45:38] Gage: (ion pistol)
[12:45:52] GM: select a Cyclone weapon
[12:46:14] GM: before Lt Utenaru puts you on KP for the next decade for bringing a knife to a gunfight
[12:46:35] Gage: (ion pulse is a cyclone weapon)
[12:46:35] Lt. Fallnya: (he did, hes using the ion pistol standard issue for the basic battler
[12:46:44] GM: the EP-40?
[12:46:50] GM: kk, it's 6d6
[12:46:56] GM: so reroll the damage
[12:47:03] Gage: (yea..ok)
[12:47:11] Gage: [6d6] => [3,6,6,5,3,3] = (26)
[12:47:15] GM: 4d6 really palladium, really…snot rags do more damage
[12:47:40] Lt. Fallnya: (actually 4d6 is average ion pistol damage )
[12:47:40] GM: Your shot hits it in the back, but does not kill it!
[12:47:43] Lt. Fallnya: (least for a single shot)
[12:48:04] GM: well the EP-40 is a single shot only deal, and 4d6 is far to wimpy for my tastes
[12:48:28] Lt. Fallnya: (heh make an EP-45 Particle pistol then)
[12:48:37] GM: great for plot where Rand can take down a Gumo with one hit, but for this…hell nah
[12:48:39] Lt. Fallnya: (and give it 6d6
[12:49:04] GM: nope EP-40's do better damage then some brain dead editor at palladium wants them to
[12:49:36] GM: The Haydonite in front of Jaron, opens fire point blank at the Garland's midsection
[12:49:47] Haydonite: [1d20+7] => [6,7] = (13)
[12:50:36] Haydonite: Jaron, joo is being shot at
[12:50:53] Lt. Fallnya: (he may have crashed again give him a moment
[12:50:59] Haydonite: ((okie))
[12:51:19] CWO Sarah: (( eek ))
[12:52:12] CWO Sarah: (( *bends over for more paddles, btw* ))
[12:52:13] Lt. Jaron since close and it a foul mood, tries to bash the faceplate in of the gaydonite thats firing (to strike [1d20+5] => [5,5] = (10))
[12:52:30] Lt. Jaron: (oh come on, the blows in more ways than 1)
[12:52:32] Haydonite: [1d4*10+15] => 55
[12:52:59] CWO Sarah: (( lol. gaydonite ))
[12:53:04] Haydonite: you simoed it technically, so roll damage…let me figure out what that is lol
[12:53:48] Lt. Fallnya: (that would be a body block essentially if you simo it, umm whats the str on that mech and ill be able to tell yo
[12:53:55] GM: roll 4d4 damage, but you hit the main body instead
[12:55:02] Lt. Jaron: [4d4] => [2,1,2,1] = (6)
[12:55:34] GM: You smack him in the dome and he takes a step back, quite unsure what to do.
[12:55:45] Haydonite: The fusk? Did he just HIT me?!
[12:56:10] GM: The other Haydonite pushes his way into the corridor firing all the while.
[12:56:14] GM: Suki!
[12:56:28] CWO Sarah: (( yup, now he's gonna roll you for your lunch money. ;p ))
[12:57:15] Lt. Ishida : Hitman 1 to command! We have a breech portside, enemy troops are entering the ship along Sections 171 and 172! My CO is down! Assuming command!
[12:58:50] Lt. Ishida : All units, follow my lead!
[12:59:33] Lt. Ishida : Command we are moving inside the Phoenix! Switching to Civil Defense frequency now!
[01:00:00] Lt. Ishida flies in thru the hole.
[01:00:04] Lt. Ishida : [1d100] =>  = (44)
[01:00:28] GM: Jaron! Your turn
[01:01:24] Lee: ((Waiting my turn raps fingers.. forget about me?))
[01:01:50] GM: ((I'm going to finish up this combat round and then will call it until next week okay, unless you all want to hang out longer))
[01:02:13] GM: No lee, you are after Jaron, in the list, or, if you want you can interrupt and skip ahead since your init was better
[01:03:00] CWO Sarah: (( *can hang out longer* ))
[01:03:21] CWO Sarah: (( *tickles da GM* ))
[01:03:27] GM: So, Jaron, your go, unless Lee wishes to interrupt.
[01:03:46] Lee: (I'm cool with calling it for the night) yeah I'll interrupt and follow the Reavers into the city to protect civvies..
[01:04:11] GM: kk, you hustle on over to the hole and jump on in! Wheeeee!
[01:04:14] GM: Jaron?
[01:06:05] GM: As you jump Lee, you can see them pretty far down, one has landed on a high rise, and the other 4 have landed in the street, you can see a smoking crater for where the Revenant blast impacted, and a pile of rubble lays where a three story building had stood, you see the blue and red flashes of police and EMT first responders as well as a few Green Bioroids of the Civil Defense moving to intercept
[01:06:44] GM: We lose Jaron?
[01:07:26] Lee land feet first on the one on the high rise and jump kicks his head (uses AP)
[01:07:46] GM: That will be next attack Lee, it's a fair distance and you are still in free fall.
[01:08:00] GM: You used your attack to make it to the hole and jump…
[01:08:15] Lee: yup consider it a readied action.
[01:08:20] GM: kk
[01:08:38] Lt. Fallnya while its her turn she switches on her locater and switches checking life support systems for breaches if any she switches to the 6 hour supply for her armor
[01:09:06] GM: kk, Lu, your pilots compartment is solid and secure.
[01:09:22] GM: so, you are not in immediate risk o death.
[01:09:34] GM: Ay!
[01:10:49] 2Lt. Aylanea pushes to full thrusters to get through the hole quickly, getting ready to switch modes as soon as she makes it to the inside of the ship, to continue going after the remaining enemies in battloid mode if necessary.
[01:11:01] GM: roll piloting
[01:11:20] Lt. Fallnya sings into her own comm other than that waiting [1d100] =>  = (25) vs 48
[01:11:58] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d100] =>  = (9) vs. 83% Pilot Veritech (specialty Alpha)
[01:12:03] UEEF: Clear this channel Hitman Actual, we hear you just fine! Dustoff ETA 4 minutes!
[01:12:15] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( rotfl ))
[01:12:39] GM: Ay, with that roll you add a lil barrel roll to that entry!
[01:12:43] Lt. Fallnya: (that was over squad chatter not command broadcast
[01:12:51] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( wee! ))
[01:12:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( Do a Barrel Roll! teehee ))
[01:13:33] GM: You burst into the city as the bulkheads start to shutter over the breech (Tony, you're fine, just describing whats up) as you swoop over the city.
[01:13:56] GM: Sarah, you're affixed to Suki's butt, so, your inside as well.
[01:13:59] Anthony: (( Ok. ))
[01:14:21] GM: Sarah your turn
[01:14:34] CWO Sarah: (( *takes Suki from behind with toy* ))
[01:14:39] GM: tony roll a piloting if you wish to enter the city, otherwise, tell me what joo up too.
[01:14:57] Lt. Ishida : Eek, Sarah, not now! Not in combat!!!
[01:15:21] Anthony: Pilot: Alpha Special [1d100] =>  = (22) vs. 77%
[01:15:44] CWO Sarah braces as Suki enters the city, quickly checking her instruments and such for the Reavers, intending to get in and deal with them as quickly as possible. "We going to be going for ground combat for this? Or maintain overflight?"
[01:15:49] GM: Tony you clear the breech, and none to soon! As right behind you blast plating seals the breech!
[01:16:00] CWO Sarah: [1d100] =>  = (31) RSI and [1d20+1] => [15,1] = (16) perc to see where they are
[01:16:10] Lt. Ishida : We take the fight to them.
[01:16:22] Lt. Ishida : Just try to keep collateral damage to a minimum.
[01:16:36] CWO Sarah nods quickly. "Prep for separation and battloid mode combat then?"
[01:16:52] GM: You can see a pair of them ahead of you, they seem to be getting their bearings.
[01:18:13] GM: Actually Sarah, technically the enemy is behind you, since they are foot mobiles, and you just swooped in ina jet fighter…so.
[01:18:26] CWO Sarah: (( lol, ah ))
[01:18:56] GM: so, your action Sarah-chan
[01:19:09] CWO Sarah: (( *asked Suki a question* ))
[01:19:34] GM: Your a big girl! You can detach w/o permission
[01:19:51] GM: or you can fire a snap shot while still connected…
