Chapter 8 - Act II - Part 4


[07:29:45] Chris: Anji and Max have begun to put together the 'shopping list' for their comm gear. The rest of you I believe had a suggestion from the Colonel to assist you.
[07:30:39] GM: Annnnd, go!
[07:31:43] Lt. Jaron heads out the the cantina and mess in search of info
[07:32:27] CWO2 Sarah ponders just a little, glancing to Jaron leaving, and looking to the others.
[07:32:49] 2 LT Komillia: It occurs to me: Why don't we just pour very hot plasma into the mines until they fill, while keeping some heavy firepower like MACs to just fire at all known entrances to reduce the number of escapees.
[07:32:52] 2 LT Komillia: ?
[07:33:04] Lt. Jaron stops and looks over his shoulder "Anyone coming or you wish to stay cozy?"
[07:33:34] Lt. Ishida looks over at Komillia and offers a half cocked smile.
[07:33:34] 2 LT Komillia: I'll tag along.
[07:33:35] CWO2 Sarah looks over. "I'd assume they want their Sekiton mines back when we're done, really, or they would have done something drastic long ago."
[07:34:42] CWO2 Sarah digs for a base directory. "I probably can as well."
[07:35:22] Lt. Ishida wordlessly tugs on her winter jacket and mittens and goes to the door.
[07:35:45] 2Lt. Aylanea falls in with all the others, grabbing a coat to follow along.
[07:36:18] FO Ryu Hasegawa sighs
[07:36:35] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "well since everyone is playing 'follow the leader' guess Ill play too"
[07:36:50] FO Ryu Hasegawa grabs coat and follows along
[07:36:54] Lt. Jaron gets into vehicle and starts it up, waiting for all to fit in
[07:37:23] Lt. Ishida on her way to the jeep, as if accomplishing a task on a checklist, Suki lies onto the snow in front of the hooch and refreshes her snow angel.
[07:37:46] Lt. Ishida then hops into the front passenger seat.
[07:38:14] 2 LT Komillia climbs in to the back. "Driver, I'd like some skidding if you do not mind…"
[07:38:28] Lt. Ishida buckles up
[07:38:30] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs at the snow angel. And at Komi's request, rolling her eyes.
[07:38:42] CWO2 Sarah straps in tight. Yep.
[07:39:06] Lt. Ishida stows her rifle and hangs on.
[07:39:28] FO Ryu Hasegawa buckles up and falls silent, folding his arms across his chest
[07:39:41] Lt. Jaron nods and starts off, taking a long way to the mess to maybe skid for Komillia
[07:40:01] GM: Roll it.
[07:41:04] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [82] = (82) vs 74
[07:41:08] Lt. Jaron: (oops)
[07:41:13] GM: [1d100] => [5] = (5)
[07:41:24] CWO2 Sarah: (( hehehehehe ))
[07:42:26] GM: As you try to skid you run over a slight impact crater from the earlier bombing and the vehicle bottoms out. [4d6] => [3,6,1,4] = (14)
[07:43:11] GM: The vehicle and everyone in it takes some damage as you bounce around, those that had strapped in take 1/2
[07:43:29] CWO2 Sarah: (( hah. ))
[07:43:47] GM: So, that would be Komillia and Jaron taking 14, and everyone else taking 7
[07:44:10] CWO2 Sarah: (( actually, I think Aylanea takes 14 as well. ))
[07:44:24] GM: This is true
[07:44:35] GM: sadly her airbags do not cushion her
[07:44:39] CWO2 Sarah oofs softly.
[07:44:47] CWO2 Sarah: (( *paddles* ))
[07:45:03] GM: The rest of the trip to the mess hall is uneventful.
[07:45:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehehehe ))
[07:45:23] Lt. Jaron rubs his shoulder afterward. "Rough enough for you Komillia?"
[07:45:40] Lt. Ishida snickers.
[07:46:08] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "right Lt, kill us before the enemy does"
[07:46:17] FO Ryu Hasegawa smirks
[07:46:19] 2 LT Komillia: Just the way I like it.
[07:46:28] 2 LT Komillia buckles in to be safe.
[07:46:58] Lt. Jaron parks slowly at the mess "At least you know who killed you Hasegawa"
[07:47:58] Lt. Jaron gets out slowly as well "Just ask some of bears if they've heard of a guide or vet from the caves and don't tick any of them off"
[07:47:59] GM: Ryu buckled up, he only took half damage.
[07:48:25] GM: Roll rolls or RP it up, your choice.
[07:49:36] CWO2 Sarah looks around quickly as she gets out of the vehicle, raising her eyebrows just slightly.
[07:50:04] Lt. Ishida: ((Intelligence [1d100] => [93] = (93) vs 72%))
[07:50:19] CWO2 Sarah: (( good one Suki ))
[07:50:27] GM: Suki is unable to gather any relevant information.
[07:50:47] Lt. Jaron enters the mess and looks around as he hopes for prospects (perception [1d20+2] => [5,2] = (7); intelligence [1d100] => [72] = (72) vs 69; military history [1d100] => [21] = (21) vs 75)
[07:51:28] GM: Jaron likewise fails to gather any relevant information.
[07:52:57] GM: Anyone else?
[07:53:10] GM: Still three other players have a shot.
[07:54:27] Lt. Jaron: (oh well the hell, I got an idea)
[07:54:30] Lt. Jaron tries one more person, a female bear and tries to sweet talk her (charm [1d100] => [93] = (93) vs 35%)
[07:54:39] GM: Ouch
[07:54:43] Lt. Jaron: (hehe)
[07:54:43] GM: Roll dodge.
[07:54:57] GM: [1d20+6] => [5,6] = (11)
[07:55:00] 2 LT Komillia tries her best military behavior (([1d100] => [61] = (61) vs. 70 Mil Etiquette)), to ask about any tour guides. Even getting up to do a quick public speech to get some help. [1d100] => [77] = (77) vs. 35 public speaking
[07:55:00] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+8] => [5,8] = (13)
[07:55:26] Lt. Jaron: (lol we are not very sociable tonight)
[07:55:40] GM: Jaron, you are able to backpedal away from her back hand, your advances clearly not wanted.
[07:56:08] GM: Komillia, your, speech, is met with loud laughter and heckling.
[07:56:08] Lt. Jaron leaves that area quickly and returns to the others "I got nothing"
[07:56:20] 2 LT Komillia: Failing that she tries swaying any perverts in the crowd, despite not being a furvert. [1d100] => [3] = (3) vs 24 Seduction.
[07:56:30] Lt. Jaron: (lol)
[07:56:40] GM: And Ryu?
[07:56:44] GM: What is Ryu doing?
[07:56:48] 2 LT Komillia: ((is very thankful this isn't exalted…))
[07:56:58] CWO2 Sarah looks around curiously, trying to chat up a few random people to see if she can find out more on where to find someone like they need. [1d100] => [100] = (100) trust, [1d100] => [41] = (41) Tactics vs. 89 to explain what's needed, [1d100] => [29] = (29) Etiquette vs. 69% to make sure she uses proper terms, and [1d100] => [6] = (6) Public Speaking vs. 54, to not sound ridiculous about it.
[07:57:01] FO Ryu Hasegawa seems more interested in joking around and laughing with some of the enlisted folks
[07:57:17] FO Ryu Hasegawa doesn’t pay attention to the others antics
[07:57:48] CWO2 Sarah: (( *facepalms* ))
[07:57:51] Karberran slides up to Komillia.
[07:58:03] Karberran: Hey there pinky.
[07:58:05] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (lol)
[07:58:22] CWO2 Sarah: (( vs. 97% trust/intimidate. 100. critfail. Yay me. ))
[07:58:32] Karberran: You look fit, I might break you though.
[07:58:40] Karberran garbs Komillia's ass.
[07:58:48] Lt. Jaron: (lol)
[07:59:11] GM: The nearby Karbarrans hoot and hollar in approval!
[08:00:02] 2Lt. Aylanea just laughs at Komi's attempt. She tries seeing what she can find out, meanwhile. [1d100] => [95] = (95) (intelligence vs. 68%).
[08:00:11] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( suck and fail. ))
[08:00:16] GM: Sarah, no one trusts you…at all. But, you do manage to open a dialogue with some Karberrans.
[08:00:42] Karberran smiles wide at Komillia's silence.
[08:01:04] Lt. Jaron rubs his temple as he gets himself a cup of hot cocoa, hoping things work out
[08:01:20] Karberran lifts Komillia up and over his shoulder, ass end forward and guffaws.
[08:01:32] Karberran: I'm gonna take you home wit me t'night.
[08:01:38] Karberran pats her ass.
[08:01:45] Gage enters eventually after walking, since being in a different hooch sucks sometimes.
[08:02:34] Lt. Ishida moves towards the door, in case the Karbarran makes good with his stated intent. Snickering somewhat at the Zentraedi being manhandled.
[08:03:38] CWO2 Sarah tries to take the dialogue and see if she can run with it, after laughing at Komi's ass being patted, and to point out her CO, trying to gesture Jaron over to talk to the ones she's talking to. [1d100] => [65] = (65) (trust him if not me), [1d100] => [3] = (3) charm vs. 85% to be convincing.
[08:03:52] 2 LT Komillia is in too much shock that it worked to do much.
[08:04:01] 2 LT Komillia: Only if you can get me a guide to these mines.
[08:04:37] Karberran looks over at Komillia, and grins.
[08:04:43] Gage: mil etq [1d100] => [54] = (54) vs 60
[08:05:01] Karberran: You know what they say about bearskin rugs. Warm and fuz-ee!
[08:05:28] Lt. Jaron guards his cup of coco as he heads over to Sarah.
[08:05:32] GM: The other bearmen and women start cracking up again.
[08:06:42] 2Lt. Aylanea starts to drink a cup of cocoa as well, only to choke hard on it as she hears the 'bearskin rug' comment, laughing herself.
[08:07:02] GM: Gage, the guy is a line chief or something similar, the exact rank escapes you, and he wears the uniform of the KDF (Karberran Defense Force)
[08:07:33] 2 LT Komillia just facepalms.
[08:08:09] Karberran does a lazy turn and the room exalts as Komillia's taut ass is presented.
[08:08:26] Gage walks over to Komillia as the bear twirls her and asks "You ok there Komillia?"
[08:08:27] Karberran sets Komillia back down and pats her on the head.
[08:08:31] 2 LT Komillia: I'm not talking dirty, I'm looking for a, oh hell, one of you want to give me a hand here?
[08:08:34] Karberran: You're a good sport.
[08:08:52] 2 LT Komillia: Thanks.
[08:09:34] Lt. Ishida returns her digital camera to her pocket after snapping some incriminating photos.
[08:10:32] FO Ryu Hasegawa from his seat laughs
[08:10:40] GM: Sarah, you are able to get some info. Komillia you as well, AFTER the table the Karberran returns to can control their laughter.
[08:10:54] Gage figures Komillia is still in some shock and lets her be to get some food
[08:10:55] GM: You are given tow viable leads.
[08:11:10] GM: ((tow = two, but, you knew that…))
[08:11:37] 2 LT Komillia has soem odd nightmares the next time she naps…
[08:12:37] CWO2 Sarah makes sure to be very polite in thanking those she was speaking to, once she has the lead, smiling and looking to Jaron and Suki.
[08:12:53] GM: The first lead seems remote (literally, but if it pans out the guide would be a good catch.) A hermit, living to the north in the more mountainous regions. Apparently he was one of the resistance leaders that operated out of Urt Balor during the Invid Occupation.
[08:13:37] GM: The second lead is more local, the Mining Guild has a chapter house in the city near the base.
[08:15:35] 2 LT Komillia: Hrmm, Guilds vs. Hermits. I say if we can't rouse a grampa bear and hope he doesn't bite one of our heads off.
[08:16:18] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little at that. "If he was a resistance leader, he'll know the ins and outs of using it as a military facility as well though."
[08:16:29] CWO2 Sarah: "That's definitely a plus."
[08:16:30] Lt. Ishida: We can always show him a photo of what happened earlier, say you're into him.
[08:16:49] CWO2 Sarah cracks up laughing at that.
[08:17:51] 2 LT Komillia wonders how many chain swings until she gets to the gooey center of a Suki-pop.
[08:17:51] Lt. Jaron: "Aylanea, take those present and check out the Mining guild. I will get clearance and any other intel on the area north of the mountain where the hermit lives"
[08:18:07] Lt. Ishida: Guild might have information as well, wasn't Urt Balor supposed to be brought back online before the Haydonite arrived?
[08:18:36] FO Ryu Hasegawa: Guilds sounds like politics to me, they might try and use us to get more favorable treatment
[08:18:46] Lt. Ishida: So?
[08:18:58] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks at that and nods quickly. "Right…" She nods just a little…
[08:19:03] Lt. Ishida: So long as we accomplish our goals, does it matter?
[08:19:09] FO Ryu Hasegawa: I hate politics
[08:19:12] FO Ryu Hasegawa smirks
[08:19:27] Lt. Ishida: Well, good thing you're in the military then
[08:19:34] Lt. Ishida laughs good naturedly
[08:20:42] Lt. Jaron motions Gage over "You'll head with XO to Mining guild." he looks to the others "Take small arms only and try to avoid trouble"
[08:20:50] FO Ryu Hasegawa grimaces but says nothing else, a cloud coming over his face
[08:21:34] GM: Jaron, as Ay get her team ready, you are able to ascertain that the Hermit is about a continent away well within the mountains. The area is a military control zone, but the reason for it is not disclosed to you. However the Colonel is willing to sign off on a flight plan.
[08:22:00] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "If I may Lt I would like to come with you to see the hermit"
[08:22:00] Lt. Ishida: I guess that leaves my unit with the hermit.
[08:22:19] Lt. Ishida: It's up to Lt. Fairman, you're his troop.
[08:24:02] GM: Jaron?
[08:24:11] 2Lt. Aylanea gets the group together to the guild, for the moment, looking around and checking for her light arms, hoping to all heck she won't need them.
[08:26:46] Lt. Jaron: (meant for all to got to town to mining guild…no one goes to hermit until info is gather from mining guild)
[08:27:06] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oh ))
[08:27:11] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[08:27:20] Lt. Jaron replies to Ryu "When you all return Ryu"
[08:27:20] Lt. Ishida: Be faster if we split up, Colonel and the Major want us Oscar Mike ASAP.
[08:27:52] GM: ((Oscar Mike = OM = On Mission.))
[08:29:16] Lt. Jaron ponders a moment "Fine. Ryu go with Suki to the hermit."
[08:29:32] Lt. Ishida nods
[08:29:47] Lt. Ishida: Okay, Amdahl, Hasegawa, grab your kit.
[08:29:57] Lt. Ishida: I'll see about the flight plan.
[08:30:14] Lt. Jaron hands Suki the flight plans "Alright done"
[08:30:22] Lt. Ishida nods.
[08:30:34] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "right
[08:30:46] CWO2 Sarah checks her own small arm nervously, biting her lip slightly as she does, nodding, then blinking at the change. "Yes, ma'am." She heads to get her kit then, hurrying along.
[08:31:39] FO Ryu Hasegawa goes and grabs the kit
[08:32:02] FO Ryu Hasegawa double checks his gear, making sure his side arm is loaded as well
[08:32:03] Gage gears up for the XO and awaits for departure
[08:32:41] 2 LT Komillia makes herself presentable for when she meets the guild. [1d100] => [4] = (4) vs 62 Wardrobe and grooming
[08:32:44] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol, so it's what, Gage, Komi, and Ay? hehehe. ))
[08:32:47] GM: Ryu, you Sarah and Suki well, everyone, returns to the hooch and gets their gear, Suki dons her CVR-3 and brings her Katana with her.
[08:33:04] Gage: (yea)
[08:33:29] CWO2 Sarah gets her own CVR on as well, checking her weapons and nodding slightly.
[08:33:46] 2 LT Komillia we'll I'm ready to go.
[08:33:55] 2 LT Komillia: Well I'm ready to go.
[08:34:42] GM: Okay, one person from each team roll a 1d100, high roll means that team starts first.
[08:34:50] FO Ryu Hasegawa straps his side arm around his waist and nods
[08:34:56] 2Lt. Aylanea checks her sidearm, and doesn't really wear her armor, figuring she won't need it. "Ready."
[08:35:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d100] => [59] = (59)
[08:36:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( peeks at the other group ))
[08:36:34] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d100] => [70] = (70)
[08:36:45] GM: Hermit team begins
[08:37:15] GM: You three make it to the flight line and Ishida pauses at the hanger.
[08:38:17] Lt. Ishida: We have some light transport aircraft on base, if we get the hermit to join, it would be impolite to stuff him into a bomb bay.
[08:39:06] Lt. Ishida: Hasegawa, I guess you can fly point in your Alpha.
[08:39:29] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "excellent, I've been itching to get off the ground"
[08:40:13] GM: Ishida nods and then motioning for Sarah to follow makes her way to the tarmac next to the hanger and points to a waiting VC-33
[08:41:18] FO Ryu Hasegawa runs over to his VT and begins to do pre-flight checks
[08:41:21] CWO2 Sarah nods quickly and heads over. "Right…"
[08:41:56] GM: A few minutes or so later, the pair of aircraft taxi onto the runway.
[08:42:12] Lt. Ishida: This things a damn bus!
[08:42:14] Lt. Ishida laughs
[08:43:04] GM: Ahead of you Ryu you can see the VC-33 and it's control surfaces moving up and down as her pilot runs thru preflight.
[08:43:06] CWO2 Sarah rolls her eyes a little and nods, laughing as well. "Yeah… Certainly pokey. I thought we'd stuff him in a Beta cockpit if we took our Legios units. Still, this has more room for a long flight."
[08:43:46] FO Ryu Hasegawa comes over the comm "That's a very big bus you got there"
[08:44:04] Lt. Ishida: Roger that 4-1, try and keep up.
[08:44:32] CWO2 Sarah starts laughing. "Just don't push it apart, it won't fly quite as fast as we're used to."
[08:44:33] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Think you can out fly me?" he chuckles "your on"
[08:44:50] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Hitman 4-1 requesting clearance"
[08:45:00] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (sorry 1-4 )
[08:45:01] Lt. Ishida cuts external comms and looks at Sarah.
[08:45:04] Lt. Ishida: Thinks, he says.
[08:46:02] GM: The rest of the team see's the VC-33 and the lone Alpha lift off and turn north, disappearing into the distance.
[08:46:28] CWO2 Sarah snickers at that.
[08:47:42] GM: You head northward and after a few radio center changes you enter the Northern AO.
[08:48:30] GM: Below you the land is white with snow. Crags and mountains saturate the landscape and thickets of large pine trees abound.
[08:48:58] GM: You pass over a large canyon with a frozen river at the center of it.
[08:49:03] CWO2 Sarah watches that, oohing just a little at it. "Pretty."
[08:49:19] Lt. Ishida: Reminds me of Hokkaido.
[08:49:44] Lt. Ishida: I will have to come back here and ski some day.
[08:50:08] GM: Percs.
[08:50:31] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d20] => [14] = (14)
[08:50:48] CWO2 Sarah laughs and nods. "Any chance of teaching me to ski before that? It sounds fun…" She watches out still. [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9)
[08:52:26] Lt. Ishida: Sure, I would be happy to. [1d20+3] => [18,3] = (21)
[08:54:04] GM: Sarah, you see snow squirrels. Ryu, very far in the distance around the summit of a massive mountain you can see sporadic flashes of light indicative of a battle. Suki, you see a very thin tendril of smoke about 20 klicks off your port.
[08:54:30] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "heads up, we might have hostiles"
[08:55:07] Lt. Ishida: Roger that, I see smoke on the ground. Come left heading 295.
[08:55:07] CWO2 Sarah: (( oooh. Squirrels! ))
[08:55:35] GM: The VC-33 makes a graceful if not slow turn to the left and begins to descend.
[08:56:02] GM: Percs once more please.
[08:56:07] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Roger, prepping for a pass"
[08:56:15] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d20] => [15] = (15)
[08:56:24] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (I dunno the bonus)
[08:56:40] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [14,3] = (17)
[08:57:43] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [2,1] = (3)
[08:57:49] CWO2 Sarah: (( more squirrels! ))
[08:57:50] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:57:54] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (more squirrels!)
[08:58:00] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (lol)
[08:58:07] GM: the pair of aircraft pass over the smoke. Both Ryu and Suki can see a large cabin (probably small by Karberran standards) nestled in a small clearing. About a half click to the west is a clearing. Sarah, you see more squirrels!
[08:58:12] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (jinx )
[08:59:11] GM: Actions?
[08:59:51] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "I'll go battloid and see if I can see any threats on the ground"
[08:59:52] GM: And yes Sarah, Suki points out the clearing to you. Miss eagle eye.
[08:59:58] CWO2 Sarah: (( rar ))
[09:00:01] CWO2 Sarah: (( *bites* ))
[09:00:23] Lt. Ishida: Roger that, I'll see if that larger clearing is big enough.
[09:00:29] Lt. Ishida: [1d100] => [77] = (77)
[09:00:59] FO Ryu Hasegawa flips the battloid lever after going Guardian to hover
[09:01:15] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (down by the clearing not mid air)
[09:01:48] GM: With Sarah and Suki both working the controls as pilot and copliot Suki brings the VC-33 down in the middle of the clearing softly but doesn’t touch down just yet.
[09:01:55] GM: percs Suki and Sarah.
[09:02:02] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [15,1] = (16)
[09:02:16] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [19,3] = (22)
[09:02:20] CWO2 Sarah: (( I guess my sacrifice to the RNG worked. ))
[09:02:30] GM: Poor mousie!
[09:03:02] GM: Sarah, you and Suki see a small dock and further up a rise an upturned rowboat on wood blocks.
[09:03:56] CWO2 Sarah blinks a little at that, raising her eyebrows.
[09:04:18] Lt. Ishida: Clearings a lake.
[09:04:39] Lt. Ishida maneuvers towards 'shore' and lands there. [1d100] => [87] = (87) vs 93%
[09:05:03] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Roger that, looks clear from down here"
[09:06:05] GM: The landing is kind of sketchy, but nothing horrible happens and the 33 settles at a 15 degree angle with it's nose pointed towards the lake.
[09:06:35] Lt. Ishida: Bus or not, it handles well. I have to admit, it's growing on me.
[09:07:31] Lt. Ishida: Hammer 1-1 is down and secure. 4-1 land at your discretion.
[09:08:08] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (thought I had lol)
[09:08:22] GM: You said Guardian to hover.
[09:08:23] CWO2 Sarah laughs just a little and nods. "Yeah, nice and comfy…" She laughs a little.
[09:08:25] GM: so…
[09:08:30] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (then switched to Battloid)
[09:08:38] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (once clear)
[09:08:52] GM: Suki keep the plane running as Sarah hops out and does the normal ground procedures etc, then shuts the aircraft down.
[09:09:31] GM: Which clearing, the one they landed at Ryu?
[09:09:46] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (yeah)
[09:10:07] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (I went in to make sure it was clear)
[09:10:28] GM: Suki hops out and stretches, the hours long flight having taken it's toll.
[09:11:03] Lt. Ishida grabs her gear and her helmet and zips her jacket up and moves towards Ryu.
[09:11:06] CWO2 Sarah: (( *cuts a 'laughs a little' from that last. Gah.* ))
[09:11:15] CWO2 Sarah grabs her own gear, nodding quickly and following close behind Suki.
[09:11:29] FO Ryu Hasegawa climbs down out of the Mech
[09:11:40] GM: percs
[09:11:45] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "You want me to follow in Bt?"
[09:11:53] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15)
[09:11:57] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d20] => [2] = (2)
[09:12:00] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (lol)
[09:12:07] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (my turn to see squirrels)
[09:12:31] Lt. Ishida: On foot. Kami knows what he has under the snow. Be impolite to crunch under a garden or something important.
[09:12:47] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [5,3] = (8)
[09:13:13] GM: Sarah as Ryu and Suki talk, you get the feeling you are being watched.
[09:13:34] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "alright, just feel like we shouldn't leave the mechs here"
[09:13:45] CWO2 Sarah frowns a little and blinks, looking around. "Someone or something knows we're here. We're being watched…" She murmurs.
[09:14:00] Lt. Ishida nods
[09:14:06] FO Ryu Hasegawa tenses slightly
[09:14:14] Lt. Ishida: He'd have to be dead not to have heard us landing.
[09:14:37] Lt. Ishida sets off towards the cabin
[09:14:37] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "You did say he was a resistance fighter"
[09:14:43] CWO2 Sarah nods at that. "that's true. Certainly not subtle landing the 33."
[09:14:46] Lt. Ishida: Hai.
[09:15:04] GM: percs and skill on your way in
[09:15:17] FO Ryu Hasegawa makes sure to enable the Alphas security systems and then comes after them
[09:15:24] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[09:15:35] CWO2 Sarah: (( SQUIRREL! ))
[09:15:43] GM: Sarah, this time, you actually DO see a Squirrel
[09:15:46] 2 LT Komillia: ((Squirrel Girls!))
[09:15:56] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (my name is dough and i LOVE you lol)
[09:15:58] CWO2 Sarah: (( *trips on a rock under the snow and flops on her face, too? * ))
[09:16:40] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100] => [57] = (57) detect ambush, and [1d100] => [21] = (21) detect concealment (if I still can after that perc)
[09:16:49] CWO2 Sarah: (( vs. 75 and 70 ))
[09:16:50] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+3] => [19,3] = (22) Perc [1d100] => [64] = (64) vs 88 Detect Concealment, [1d100] => [50] = (50) vs 93 Detect Ambush
[09:18:08] GM: Ishida picks Sarah out of the snow and then the pair of them trudge thro knee to waist deep snow, at the same time avoiding a few cleverly disguised traps.
[09:19:04] GM: Ryu waiting on yer rolls
[09:19:17] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d20] => [7] = (7)
[09:19:28] FO Ryu Hasegawa: [1d100] => [14] = (14)
[09:19:40] GM: You see that very same Squirrel Sarah did, it wiggles it's nose at you that disappears into a tree.
[09:20:02] GM: You are also able to avoid traps
[09:20:32] GM: It takes some time but you eventually make it from one clearing to the other and can see the cabin ahead of you.
[09:21:12] GM: As you step into the clearing you hear a 'ka-chook' of a weapon and a gruff voice
[09:21:34] Old Grey Fur: Alright. That’s far enough.
[09:21:53] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Told you it was him"
[09:21:58] FO Ryu Hasegawa jokes
[09:22:56] Lt. Ishida: We're with the UEEF, we need to talk to you about Urt Balor.
[09:23:42] Old Grey Fur steps forward from the cover and looks at you. He is a towering Karbarran graying fur and more then his fair share of scars.
[09:24:00] Old Grey Fur safes his weapon and sighs.
[09:24:05] Old Grey Fur: Come inside.
[09:24:13] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "My what sharp teeth you have grandma"
[09:24:41] Lt. Ishida shoots Ryu a nasty glare.
[09:24:45] CWO2 Sarah glances at Ryu and rolls her eyes slightly.
[09:24:47] Lt. Ishida: We need his help.
[09:25:04] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "I know I know, I was only kidding"
[09:25:19] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "kinda reminds me of that old earth story what was it, little ried riding hood?"
[09:25:55] GM: You follow him into the cabin, it's spacious, to you, and a healthy fire is going. He sets his hand cannon down and points to some seats.
[09:26:12] Old Grey Fur: What do you want with Urt Balor?
[09:27:08] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "to blow it up?"
[09:27:30] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "at least that’s what i thought the mission was"
[09:28:05] CWO2 Sarah sighs very softly, and offers a nasty glance to Ryu before looking to the elder Karbarran more earnestly. "We're looking to get an occupying force out of it, if possible." She starts turning towards Ryu as she stresses "Without blowing it up."
[09:28:09] Lt. Ishida: The Haydonites control it, our mission is to get in and clear a path for our forces to retake it. We need a guide.
[09:28:27] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "Oh wait, its sacred isn’t it?"
[09:28:30] Old Grey Fur snorts
[09:28:31] FO Ryu Hasegawa: "dang"
[09:28:42] Old Grey Fur: Then you have wasted a trip,
[09:28:50] Old Grey Fur: I have no desire to return there.
[09:29:59] CWO2 Sarah sighs very softly. "Hmm… Our apologies then. We had hoped to have your wisdom from the previous war."
[09:31:22] Old Grey Fur: [1d100] => [77] = (77)
[09:31:40] Old Grey Fur: Kind of you to say. But my war is over.
[09:32:14] Old Grey Fur: I helped rid our world of the Invid, it is up to the younger generation to rid us of this…mechanical horror.
[09:33:03] Lt. Ishida: We aren't asking you to fight, just to guide us. The caverns are a labyrinth. One that only a few know.
[09:33:32] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (bbs guys being caled for dinner)
[09:34:43] GM: kk, while Ryu is out, fade to black. Guild team.

[09:34:57] Gage has tactical armor underneath some winter wear and weasel sidearm. He stows a M90 in the vehicle.
[09:35:27] GM: Ay, you and your boys, and girl depart the base and take FAR less time to reach your destination.
[09:35:52] GM: Komillia what your load out, I have Gage and Ay's
[09:36:33] GM: You enter the city , which is built into a large canyon. The city rest along the walls, from top to bottom.
[09:37:04] 2Lt. Aylanea looks around at the city in the canyon, raising her eyebrows a little at it. "Neat…"
[09:37:22] Gage drives along
[09:37:38] GM: Some features you gather, from observation and story is that in the past the more affluent regions used to dominate the top levels, but,t he war with the Invid Changed all that, and the rich moved further down for protection, now, it's a mish mash of both,
[09:38:19] 2Lt. Aylanea watches along for the mining guild, checking for the address and such, so she knows where they're headed.
[09:38:44] GM: the mid levels (the canyon city has at least 15 defined strata.) seem to have changed the least and hold much of the commercial and residential areas.
[09:39:21] GM: The address you have received takes you past the 'approved for UEEF on leave' sections and deeper into the canyon.
[09:39:46] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( well defined strata, do they have good railings on their roads too then, to keep people from crashing down from level into next level? ))
[09:39:49] GM: Soon, you stop seeing humans and other sentinel races on the streets
[09:40:05] GM: Yes, the major roadways all have guard rails.
[09:40:40] GM: some are even buffered by a 'layer' of buildings so that the structures may have an unobstructed view of teh canyon interior
[09:41:16] 2Lt. Aylanea hmms at the sight of no other sentinel races, raising her eyebrows. "Hope they don't think we're intruding into their private territory by going this far in…"
[09:41:37] GM: In time you enter a region that remind you history aficionados of 18th Century Industrial revolution England.
[09:42:11] Gage: "Indeed Lt."
[09:42:31] 2 LT Komillia brings only what weapons she can easily conceal, convinced coming ARMED to a mission of diplomacy seems like cosmically BAD idea,
[09:42:54] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hee hee hee. ))
[09:43:18] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *points at Jaron* his idea, we'll yell at him if it goes pear shaped because of it ))
[09:43:49] GM: You mean tits up?
[09:44:28] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little at Gage, watching the region's general architecture and style as it shifts.
[09:44:30] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[09:45:06] Gage asks "How much farther mommy?"
[09:45:48] 2Lt. Aylanea coughs slightly at that, checking the address again. "I'm not sure. Hope we're getting close."
[09:47:25] GM: You arrive near your destination, it's a seedy area, dirty, grimy and loud. You see elevated tracks for a rail system, neon signs buzzing in the humid moisture. Think, Blade Runner meets turn of the century English factory town.
[09:48:00] GM: Then add in 7 to 9 foot bear folk
[09:48:47] 2Lt. Aylanea feels small, being seven inches shorter than… any of the bears.
[09:49:07] Gage parks somewhat out of the way for easy exit "Interesting but I remember something about mining towns in American history. Looks like they are similar"
[09:50:20] GM: You see the Guild Hall next to a pub.
[09:50:45] 2Lt. Aylanea hmms at that and nods. "Ah. Don't know much about that myself…" She looks around, and tries to make sure she's standing up straight. And looks at her heels idly with annoyance. "Still, since we're here…" She laughs a tiny bit at the location. "Well, we know where they wanted the guild near, anyway."
[09:51:08] Gage exits the jeep and points to the hall "Lets hope this goes better than the mess hall"
[09:51:57] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little at that. "Yeah. Considering we didn't get to bring the one who found out something without getting her rear displayed for the whole hall…" She giggles just a little, glancing at Komi.
[09:52:05] GM: As you approach, you note the guild hall is closed, with only a light or two on, on the upper levels (it's a 5 story building built into the canyon wall)
[09:52:19] GM: The pub next door however is hopping
[09:52:39] 2 LT Komillia: True, and I hope we don't look like an organized crime outfit coming here armed, that'd be a bad reflection on the military.
[09:53:40] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks at that and glances to Komi and Gage. "I hate to say this, but… They're probably in boozing it up. How well do either of you hold liquor?" She laughs a little at Komi. "Who, us? What kind of organized crime outfit sends one guy with a pair of skinny girls, to do a hit?"
[09:54:17] Gage smirks "I would bet there are armed patrons in there" and replies to Ay "I've have my fair share in my younger days"
[09:54:56] Gage comments to the ladies without looking at them "You two are definitely gifted to say the least."
[09:55:07] GM: giggity
[09:55:15] Gage: (haha)
[09:55:33] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( or jiggly, depending on pov ))
[09:55:41] GM: So, you are standing on the street now, a few Karberrans give you passing glances and move along
[09:56:06] GM: Some those that were hanging out on the street corner watch you
[09:56:35] Gage looks at the pub "shall we ladies?"
[09:57:11] GM: hell Gage can walk in there like a big baller, a big titty Zent on each arm
[09:57:34] GM: all he needs is a pimp outfit
[09:57:40] 2 LT Komillia goes up and into the guild hall looking around for an information desk as well as anything that she would not expect from a guild hall. [1d20] => [12] = (12) PERC
[09:57:55] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs a little bit. "Somehow sense impending doom a little bit, but since we're technically not really on leave, I'm hoping that counts for something if anything happens. We were trying to contact the miners, after all…"
[09:58:04] GM: The lobby is dark, there is no one down there.
[09:58:42] 2 LT Komillia: They're closed…
[09:59:11] 2Lt. Aylanea glances to Komi. "Which is why I was looking at the pub, where they might just be."
[09:59:15] GM: Percs
[09:59:24] Gage moves towards the bears watching them and gives a wave to the bears "Are the miners in the pub?" (perception [1d20+2] => [7,2] = (9))
[09:59:24] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] => [13] = (13)
[10:00:13] GM: Komi?
[10:00:32] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *nips Komi* ))
[10:00:41] GM: Gage, you see ghetto squirrels, Ay, yes, the pub has miners, oh does it ever.
[10:02:41] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *pokepokepokes at Komi* ))
[10:03:09] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [1] = (1)
[10:03:12] 2Lt. Aylanea glances to Gage. "I'm pretty sure that's where we're looking for, the miners are in the pub, knocking back a few probably. Just remember if we go in, that we're on business…"
[10:03:14] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( LOL ))
[10:03:37] GM: Ay and Gage, you enter the pub, but not before Ay notices that the a few of the group of Karberrans on the street corner didn’t seem to take kindly of Komi entering the closed guild hall. A pair moved to cross the street before she exits and follows you into the bar, the other point at you all and words are exchanged, they all laugh.
[10:04:29] GM: ((pardon the horrible grammar there))
[10:04:48] GM: You enter the bar, Komillia you see squirrels, they seem to be drunk.
[10:05:34] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (I r back)
[10:05:41] Gage looks to Ay "Your guess is as good as mine on which one of them is part of the guild"
[10:05:49] GM: As you enter the bar goes silent. Only the music continues as most everyone but the extremely drunk and those playing cards stop what they are doing and take stock of the newcomers.
[10:06:30] 2Lt. Aylanea rolls her eyes just slightly at the pointing, sighing softly. With the way she dresses, this leads to some gainaxing, but what do you do…" She blinks as the bar goes silent, glancing to the other two. "uhoh…"
[10:06:40] 2 LT Komillia: I think that is subject best not mentioned again…
[10:06:40] Gage leans to Ay "just ask now for a member of the mining guild"
[10:08:12] 2Lt. Aylanea glances at Gage. "I think I can hopefully figure out one who's a miner…" She sighs. "Little more concerned with the reception right now."
[10:08:37] Gage nods to Ay and lets her lead
[10:09:24] 2Lt. Aylanea glances around for one who's likely to be part of the guild, her expression… slightly concerned, at the very least.
[10:09:29] 2 LT Komillia: I think outside is a bit warmer right not.
[10:09:32] GM: Well you are in there, and a few have gone back to what they were doing, but others continue to watch the pink skins.
[10:09:34] 2 LT Komillia: ((now…))
[10:10:11] Gage comments to Komillia "Maybe"
[10:10:29] 2Lt. Aylanea glances to Komi and nods slightly, still glancing. [1d20] => [10] = (10) (perc?)
[10:10:33] Bartender: Well, you hummies gonna stand there like a lump?
[10:10:51] Bartender: In or out? Either way, close the fucking door!
[10:11:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hm, thought we were all the way in. Anyway… ))
[10:11:18] GM: A few Karbarrans laugh at your expense.
[10:11:37] GM: Ay you don’t notice anything out of the ordinary
[10:11:44] 2Lt. Aylanea erks at that and slips forward, hoping the two others follow. She blushes just slightly at it.
[10:11:55] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( was looking to see which one seemed like one of the miners. ))
[10:12:09] 2 LT Komillia walks in a settles up at the bar.
[10:12:23] Bartender wipes a Karberran sized mug clean and then wipes the bar clean near Ay. [1d20+4] => [7,4] = (11)
[10:12:41] Bartender: What'll it be. Human.
[10:12:47] Gage follows and asks the bartender "We are in need of members of the mining guild." (perception [1d20+2] => [11,2] = (13))
[10:12:48] 2 LT Komillia looks to the bar keep, "So what question should I ask about what's going on that won't get my throat ripped out?"
[10:13:17] Bartender: Depends on the question. Now, you want something to drink?
[10:13:46] 2 LT Komillia and give me something light, anything truly fit for you would knock me out before I was done with the first one.
[10:13:52] Bartender looks at Gage and scoffs, looking the bar over.
[10:13:53] Bartender: Right.
[10:14:10] Bartender looks at Komillia.
[10:14:16] Bartender: Maybe I can find some warm milk.
[10:14:30] 2 LT Komillia: Mostly I want to know why people hate that guild that was across the street.
[10:14:31] GM: The nearby Karberrans roar with laughter.
[10:14:55] GM: And then as Komillia says what she says, go dead silent.
[10:15:03] 2 LT Komillia: That'd be fine, I could use a nap, Zentraedi weren't meant to deal with anything stronger than water anyway.
[10:15:22] Gage sighs as stands next to Ay
[10:15:25] 2Lt. Aylanea makes sure to keep her hands off the bar, not to dirty it, nodding just a little to Gage's question, and glancing back at Komi a little nervously. "Actually, we were looking for someone in the mining guild. Since the guild itself is closed, we were rather hoping that they were probably over here…" She shrugs, and glances to Komi and the Bartender, back at the laughing ones, and glances to Komi again, frowning as they go silent. "Er… "
[10:15:29] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( eek ))
[10:15:45] Bar Patron staggers up to Komillia.
[10:15:53] Bar Patron: Who hates the guild?
[10:16:04] Bar Patron pokes her with a meaty paw.
[10:16:19] Bar Patron: C'mon! Tell meh, I'll rip their heart out!
[10:16:44] 2 LT Komillia: Well, that would be my impression of everyone going silent every time someone mentions them. Either that or their fraidy Bears…
[10:17:02] GM: The bar patrons harrumph in agreement to the patrons claim.
[10:17:28] Bartender: You ARE from out of town.
[10:17:40] 2Lt. Aylanea glances to the staggering patron. "I would hope no one really. They were just giving dirty looks since we were walking up and finding all the lights off, possibly." She offers the patron a sweet smile. "We were hoping that we could sweet talk someone who's familiar with the caves into going on a little spelunking expedition."
[10:17:58] 2 LT Komillia: I'm from completely off planet, so I don't have a lick of sense.
[10:18:14] 2Lt. Aylanea pauses. "And probably giving dirty looks because we're obviously not local, and a long way from where anyone else not local is."
[10:18:15] Bartender: First honest thing I've heard you say.
[10:19:39] Bar Patron sits next to Komillia, and mad dogs her (or rather, mad bears her)
[10:19:41] 2 LT Komillia: So is there some initiation I missed? We only supposed to show up and ask questions on the five days the sun doesn't shine? Help me out here.
[10:19:53] Gage watches the patrons for any sliding hands or such for concealed weapons (perception [1d20+2] => [10,2] = (12))
[10:20:28] GM: Gage, if they have gone for weapons, they have either done so, or you missed it, or, nothing out of the ordinary has occurred.
[10:21:16] Bartender: So you have business with the guild?
[10:22:06] 2 LT Komillia: Just trying to clear out some mechanical roaches, and trying to make sure we don't miss any nooks or crannies.
[10:22:44] 2 LT Komillia: You know, Exterminators usually show up the first time with the resident there to be shown where the vermin are first.
[10:22:56] Bartender: You lost me.
[10:23:06] Bartender: Mechanical roaches where?
[10:23:06] 2 LT Komillia: We
[10:23:39] 2 LT Komillia: We're here to kill the Haydonites, who I called mechanical roaches, and would like to know any hard to reach spots they may be hiding in.
[10:23:40] 2Lt. Aylanea smiles to the bartender and nods slightly. "Pretty much. We're hoping we could get help from someone familiar with the caves up on the mountain."
[10:24:22] Bartender: You'll have to be more specific, there are many mountains on Karberra.
[10:25:09] 2 LT Komillia whips out a map and puts it on the table.
[10:25:22] Gage comments "Urt Balor"
[10:25:26] 2 LT Komillia: These ones, sorry I don't want to risk butchering the names.
[10:25:26] GM: Yall forgot the name already? /bonks all of you
[10:25:36] Gage: Balor*
[10:25:46] GM: Cookie for Gage
[10:25:55] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( sry, was looking for it ))
[10:25:58] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *blush* ))
[10:26:13] GM: bonk bonk BONK
[10:26:15] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (hehe balo)
[10:26:17] GM: percs
[10:26:25] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [13] = (13)
[10:26:32] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20+1] => [6,1] = (7)
[10:26:38] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( er, ignore the +1, wrong alt ))
[10:26:41] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( so 6 ))
[10:26:57] GM: Beer Squirrel
[10:27:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *picks up the squirrel and scritches it* ))
[10:27:51] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (so many squirrels)
[10:27:52] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *offers it nuts* ))
[10:28:02] GM: ((you ain’t got none))
[10:28:08] GM: Gage, need a perc
[10:28:17] 2 LT Komillia: Heh, I wonder if this wouldn't be the best way to handle it.
[10:29:04] 2 LT Komillia ganks a pair of knives out.
[10:29:07] Gage: [1d20+2] => [13,2] = (15)
[10:29:51] Bartender: Oh…you shouldn't have done that.
[10:30:05] 2 LT Komillia: Alright, you bears are hiding something and your gonna spill the beans, which for those uninitiated means tell me the truth, or I start spilling blood. I may do that if you all have made the idiotic move of aligning your selves with the damned toasters.
[10:30:09] Bartender: Look boys, she pulled a knife.
[10:30:23] Bartender: Isn't that precious
[10:30:25] Gage leans to Ay and whispers somethings before heading out a side door
[10:30:45] Bartender looks at Komillia like she is a piece of teh stupidest meat he has ever seen.
[10:30:58] 2Lt. Aylanea coughs softly at Komi and raises her eyebrows. "Er…"
[10:31:19] 2 LT Komillia: You need better eye sight, I pulled two. And just for note, the Zentraedi were built for combat, of which I'm well trained.
[10:31:35] GM: Gage, you don’t get more then a few steps from the bar when the majority of the bar patrons stand from their table in varying degrees of inebriation.
[10:32:36] GM: Some pull weapons, mostly melee sorts, although a few slug throwers present themselves, hell one enterprising Karbarran pick up his chair, and wields that.
[10:33:04] Bartender: maybe you should run now.
[10:33:06] Bartender laughs
[10:33:25] Gage pauses at the fur wall that was summoned and backs to the ladies
[10:33:34] 2 LT Komillia grins, "You kidding, I'm psyched."
[10:34:03] GM: Inits
[10:34:12] 2Lt. Aylanea glances to the bartender with a slightly pained expression, then looks to Komi. "And you thought /we/ were gonna cause a problem?"
[10:34:25] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13)
[10:34:29] Gage: [1d20+3] => [5,3] = (8)
[10:34:35] Bartender: [1d20+4] => [9,4] = (13)
[10:34:36] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20+8] => [19,8] = (27) init
[10:34:46] Bar Patron: [1d20+2] => [11,2] = (13)
[10:34:46] Bar Patron: [1d20+2] => [14,2] = (16)
[10:34:46] Bar Patron: [1d20+2] => [16,2] = (18)
[10:34:46] Bar Patron: [1d20+2] => [11,2] = (13)
[10:34:50] Bar Patron: [1d20+1] => [10,1] = (11)
[10:34:50] Bar Patron: [1d20+1] => [16,1] = (17)
[10:34:54] Bar Patron: [1d20-2] => [20,-2] = (18)
[10:34:55] Bar Patron: [1d20-2] => [2,-2] = (0)
[10:34:55] 2 LT Komillia: That's when I thought this would be a simpler hammering our way through bureaucrats.
[10:34:57] Bar Patron: [1d20-3] => [5,-3] = (2)
[10:36:07] GM: Ay you go first
[10:36:26] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( we're not using reverse init? ))
[10:36:37] GM: Ay yes, correct
[10:36:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( thbbbbbbbbbbt ))
[10:36:57] GM: Two bar patrons, skunk drunk by the looks of them charge Komillia
[10:37:09] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs slightly. "It isn't going to be. And remember, we're talking to the bartender, not one of the direct people involved with Urt Balor and the mining." She looks around and sighs.
[10:37:12] GM: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[10:37:12] GM: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[10:37:16] Gage: (lol)
[10:37:26] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *spews diet dew laughing* ))
[10:37:42] GM: And, impact the bar as they go after the 'wrong' Komillia.
[10:37:56] 2 LT Komillia giggles.
[10:38:04] GM: Gage your go
[10:39:39] Gage pulls out his weasel and aims it at a bear "Easy everyone, just let us through and the MPs wont come down knocking heads" (intimidate [1d100] => [65] = (65) vs 45)
[10:39:43] Gage: (dangit)
[10:40:13] GM: The chair wielding Bear closes and swings at Gage [1d20+3] => [13,3] = (16)
[10:40:42] Gage tries to parry the blow [1d20+6] => [13,6] = (19)
[10:41:09] Gage: "Guess there is no reasoning with this crew"
[10:41:18] GM: You parry the blow as the chair shatters over your armor, you take minimal bruise damage. [1d8] => [6] = (6)
[10:41:43] GM: Komi your go
[10:42:35] 2 LT Komillia strikes out at the nearest with BOTH knives. ((Because the book says I can do that with only one roll)) [1d20+6] => [2,6] = (8)
[10:42:51] Karberran: [1d20-1] => [20,-1] = (19)
[10:42:56] Gage: (yea, rolls are going to be awesome)
[10:43:09] GM: Even drunk, the Karberran is able to avoid your attack.
[10:44:07] GM: One Karberran attacks Ay with a knife [1d20+4] => [6,4] = (10) and another attacks Komi with a knife [1d20+3] => [4,3] = (7)
[10:44:38] GM: The bartender whips out a shotgun and fires at Komi [1d20+5] => [9,5] = (14)
[10:44:56] GM: ((remember there are no auto-dodges
[10:45:02] GM: ((you are not in mecha))
[10:45:14] 2 LT Komillia: ((no but there are auto-parries.))
[10:45:25] GM: ((yup))
[10:45:39] 2 LT Komillia parries with one of her knives. [1d20+6] => [18,6] = (24)
[10:45:50] 2Lt. Aylanea tries to divert the knife away gently with a parry, without harming the patron. [1d20+11] => [3,11] = (14)
[10:46:42] GM: Ay and Komi you deflect the knife strikes
[10:46:48] 2 LT Komillia: ((wait, I didn't see the shotgun, that's a dodge… Parrying bullets may work in other games…))
[10:47:15] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( parrying buckshot doesn't work in any game, methinks. ))
[10:47:23] Gage: (hehe)
[10:47:43] 2 LT Komillia: ((Try Exalted, you'd just have stunt it…))
[10:47:55] Gage: (just don’t catch it with your face; you could live)
[10:48:17] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( isn't the shotgun dodge separate from the knife parry anyway? ))
[10:48:24] GM: yes
[10:48:33] GM: still waiting on that dodge roll
[10:48:39] 2 LT Komillia: ((It's actually a higher bonus.))
[10:48:42] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+7] => [9,7] = (16)
[10:49:16] GM: You see the shotgun come up and shit goes into bullet time. You duck down at the last nanosecond and the blast goes off right above your head.
[10:49:45] Gage: "Sonnova.."
[10:50:36] 2 LT Komillia: ((and probably hits someone…))
[10:50:51] 2 LT Komillia: ((combat does not exist in a vacuum.))
[10:51:10] GM: Four more Karberrans attack, two with slug throwers at Komi, [1d20+4, and [1d20+3] => 1d20+4, and [1d20+3 and two at Ay, one with a pipe [1d20+5] => [12,5] = (17) and one with a mining pick [1d20+6] => [2,6] = (8)
[10:51:41] GM: [1d20+4] => [12,4] = (16) and [1d20+3] => [19,3] = (22) for Komi
[10:51:46] FO Ryu Hasegawa: (hoy boy)
[10:52:29] GM: Ay the one with the mining pick misses, embedding the pointy end in the bar beside you
[10:52:43] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+7] => [17,7] = (24) [1d20+7] => [7,7] = (14)
[10:53:00] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs very softly, trying to parry away the pipe. [1d20+11] => [2,11] = (13)
[10:53:14] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( and fails ))
[10:53:22] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( utterly. ))
[10:53:23] GM: Komillia you are able to avoid the first shot but the second hits home, Ay, the bear brains you with the pipe
[10:53:38] GM: Komi you take [6d6] => [3,2,6,5,6,3] = (25) SDC
[10:54:15] GM: Ay you take [2d8+10] => [5,8,10] = (23)
[10:55:05] GM: Ay your turn
[10:55:54] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hrm. What's the bonus for fully defensive fighting? ))
[10:56:04] GM: There is none
[10:56:13] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( must be different game I'm thinkin of ))
[10:56:16] GM: You want a hint, roll Tactics
[10:57:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hrm. at base 35% yeah,. [1d100] => [61] = (61) ))
[10:57:03] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( not ))
[10:57:25] GM: Pissed off bar vs 3 UEEF… = You might want to RUN!
[10:57:56] GM: But if you want to hang in a 10 vs 3 fight, by all means…
[10:58:07] 2 LT Komillia: ((Might take a persuasion to convince Komi of that at this point…))
[10:58:34] GM: I'm sure survival instincts would trump that hot hot blood of hers
[10:58:35] GM: lol
[10:59:38] Gage Interrupts as he moves closer to Komillia and Ay "Lt, need a plan here" as he fires his weasel at a slugthrower bear, aiming for its arm to remove it from use along with the shotgun (called shot [1d20+7] => [12,7] = (19), MD [1d4] => [4] = (4))
[11:00:06] GM: ((Gage you cant interrupt, you have acted this round, plus your init was an 8, Ay's is a 27))
[11:00:23] 2Lt. Aylanea shakes her head and sighs, trying to pull back a bit. "Komi? We're not going to beat the entire bar. And we can't afford to have you staying and getting killed at this point. Now come on, it's a bust. And they're gonna either bust our heads, or the MPs are going to arrest us for being somewhere not on the places approved for leave. Gage? You as well. Fall back."
[11:00:29] Gage: (was thinking it was beginning of new round but oh well)
[11:00:42] GM: nope still waiting for Ay to type her goodies out
[11:01:08] GM: Okay, Ay, great speech, now, what are you doing?
[11:01:23] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( I'm trying to move for Komi in the fray, mostly. ))
[11:01:40] GM: well call it since you still have an action on the board
[11:02:03] 2 LT Komillia: ((AFK))
[11:02:29] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs, trying to evade everything on her way to possibly have to grab Komi, meanwhile, as she talks.
[11:03:35] GM: okay so you are moving off pulling Komi with?
[11:04:10] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *facepalms* ))
[11:04:20] GM: I take that as a yes
[11:04:36] GM: the two drunk bears attack next unless Gage wishes to int
[11:04:41] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( sorry, parent rage ))
[11:04:52] Gage: (yes my interrupt)
[11:05:13] GM: [1d20+5] => [14,5] = (19)
[11:05:33] GM: You hit the slugthrower bear, just bearly (punlol) roll damage
[11:05:38] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( that is a "I'm stressed from this and getting bitched at by parent for it showing in my voice". How CLOSE am I still to Komi, after she had to dodge? I thought I needed a round to get TO her, then I need to roll something to grab hold to drag her next round.) ))
[11:05:44] Gage: (did 4 MD)
[11:05:51] GM: 4 md, nm you blow his arm clean off
[11:05:59] GM: the two drunk bears attack Komi
[11:06:02] GM: [1d20-1] => [3,-1] = (2)
[11:06:02] GM: [1d20-1] => [6,-1] = (5)
[11:06:08] GM: Missing badly,
[11:06:44] GM: Gage you interrupted, so, Komi lunges for the bartender [1d20+6] => [6,6] = (12)
[11:06:48] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( that's why I said "moving for her", not "grabbing her" ))
[11:06:59] GM: Bartender parries [1d20+4] => [13,4] = (17)
[11:07:07] GM: Komi does no damage.
[11:07:28] 2 LT Komillia: ((Can I kill the dice please?))
[11:07:32] GM: Slugthrower bear 2 (not missing an arm fires at Gage. [1d20+5] => [3,5] = (8)
[11:07:35] GM: Missing
[11:07:36] Gage so wishes he had his baby from the jeep "Lt, can you handle Komillia?"
[11:08:04] GM: Knife bear one and two go for Gage and Komi each [1d20+5] => [2,5] = (7) at G, [1d20+4] => [16,4] = (20) at K
[11:08:20] GM: Gage you do have to roll it's melee it MIGHT hit
[11:08:29] GM: Komi rolls parry [1d20+6] => [8,6] = (14)
[11:08:32] GM: And is hit
[11:08:42] GM: for [1d6+9] => [1,9] = (10)
[11:08:54] Gage tries to parry the knife away but hopes the armor would hold (parry [1d20+6] => [5,6] = (11))
[11:09:01] GM: Gage evades
[11:09:03] 2 LT Komillia: ((it's ok, I still have half my SDC…))
[11:09:42] GM: crowbar bear and pick bear turn on Gage for hurting their buddy. [1d20+5] => [2,5] = (7) and [1d20+6] => [4,6] = (10)
[11:11:16] Gage simultaneously fires his weasel at pick bear as he lets the crowbar come down, letting his armor take some of the blow ([1d20+7] => [6,7] = (13); dmg [1d4] => [1] = (1) MD)
[11:11:53] GM: [1d12+10/2] => [6,5] = (11) and [2d12+12/2] => [1,7,6] = (14)
[11:12:13] GM: you take 25 carry over form the melee damage, and [1d20+3] => [9,3] = (12)
[11:12:27] GM: Blow a hole into the pick bears chest
[11:12:46] Gage tries to roll with the impact, moving backwards to the door (roll with impact [1d20+4] => [5,4] = (9))
[11:12:54] GM: Ay your turn, Gage, you are sans your next attack for the simo
[11:13:19] GM: Gage you take the damage listed, your RPF was not higher then their strikes
[11:13:26] GM: ((RPF roll punch fall))
[11:14:05] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs very softy, looking around towards Gage, and trying to grab Komi at this point. [1d20+9] => [19,9] = (28) "Are you guys not listening? We're going to get killed if we stay here. There are too many of them! Now come on!"
[11:14:41] GM: Gage, sorry, you take half damage on one strike, so a total of 20
[11:15:24] GM: Ay you have Komi by the scruff of her neck/collar and have pulled her outside.
[11:15:46] Gage: "I'm coming, get Komillia started. Not going to leave you all high and dry in here alone"
[11:16:06] 2 LT Komillia: I was just getting started!!!
[11:17:05] GM: as you exit the bar, only those with ranged fire, one parting shot as you make towards the jeep . Bartender [1d20+4] => [7,4] = (11) and one slug thrower [1d20+5] => [18,5] = (23) at 1 komi, 2 Ay, 3 gage, [2d3] => [3,2] = (5)
[11:18:06] GM: Ay you are being fired on with a 23 Komi with a 11
[11:18:34] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs in Gage's direction. "I /am/. Now get out of there." She looks to Komi. "We're in enough trouble. Especially with firearms getting pulled. We're probably going to have to answer to local authorities already about the damned fight." She moves to evade as she's fired on. [1d20+12] => [9,12] = (21)
[11:18:37] GM: Sadly if Komi ducks Ay might be hit since it was a shot gun round.
[11:18:49] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( thought it was a 3, 2 on the d3. So Gage and A ))
[11:19:24] GM: oh nm good call
[11:19:31] GM: Gage, roll dodge vs an 11
[11:19:34] Gage tries to dodge the fire [1d20+7] => [20,7] = (27)
[11:19:57] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( wow, awesome matrix-dodge ))
[11:20:02] GM: Ay is hit, Gage is a smooth criminal and evades
[11:20:14] GM: ay takes [6d6] => [4,1,5,2,3,6] = (21)
[11:21:24] GM: Gage your action as you are clear of melee threats
[11:21:29] Gage rushes through the small path Ay and Komi made out before its closed off.
[11:21:39] GM: You are outside now
[11:22:13] GM: Drunk bears try to body block tackle the wimmin [1d20-1] => [5,-1] = (4) and [1d20-1] => [12,-1] = (11)
[11:22:25] GM: One falls flat, and an other is a threat
[11:22:56] 2 LT Komillia counter strikes. [1d20+6] => [6,6] = (12)
[11:23:01] GM: Komi will try and skip out of harms way [1d20+6] => [7,6] = (13)
[11:23:05] GM: and does so
[11:23:07] Gage looks to Komillia and Ay as they are outside and the drunkards still at it "What did Komillia say to start this?"
[11:23:12] GM: oh nm you are back
[11:23:12] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( uh ))
[11:23:13] 2 LT Komillia: ((HEY!))
[11:23:20] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( she's been back for a WHILE ))
[11:23:29] GM: well EXCuse me! lol
[11:23:42] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( she said something about killing the dice previously before you rolled parry for her ))
[11:23:43] Gage: (hehe)
[11:23:46] GM: [1d20-1] => [6,-1] = (5)
[11:23:52] GM: Komi you doink the enemy
[11:24:01] 2 LT Komillia: [1d4] => [4] = (4)
[11:24:06] GM: one dead bear
[11:24:13] GM: You are all outside
[11:24:21] GM: And they are pursuing you
[11:24:41] GM: just gonna take em a bit to get over corpse bear in the doorway
[11:24:48] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( doink the bear with what, to kill it? ))
[11:24:54] Gage moves to the jeep and peeks underneath "Someone start it up" (perception [1d20+2] => [7,2] = (9))
[11:24:55] GM: vibro knife
[11:24:57] GM: 4 md
[11:24:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oh. eep. ))
[11:25:02] GM: = bear fillet
[11:25:40] GM: Gage, you move to start the jeep
[11:25:45] GM: Komi's action
[11:26:21] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs very softly, trying to get to the jeep. "Dammit, Komi…"
[11:26:22] 2 LT Komillia: Well, I was hoping that they'd get scared and spill whatever they were hiding.
[11:26:28] GM: ((Komi you did take an added 10 SD so, note that please))
[11:26:37] 2 LT Komillia: But I seriously think they are in cahoots with the Haydonites.
[11:27:05] Gage comments "Whatever Komillia, we aren’t going to get it here"
[11:27:06] 2 LT Komillia looks at her bruises, noting she had taken worse from her Sifu.
[11:27:49] GM: Not this time Komi, Sifu was never trying to KILL you, these wounds sting of malice.
[11:27:57] GM: Ay your action
[11:28:37] 2Lt. Aylanea shakes her head. "I doubt it, and you can't prove it in any case. It just takes longer to coax anything out of drunk bar patrons. If you could prove it, maybe. But you can't. I'm just worried about what will happen later over this. Now get in." She starts climbing in herself.
[11:28:51] Gage comments to Ay "My M90 is in the back"
[11:28:58] GM: Gage, your passengers are in, roll percs all of you
[11:29:03] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] => [11] = (11)
[11:29:06] Gage: [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3)
[11:29:06] GM: Gage your action
[11:29:12] Gage: (damn)
[11:29:31] Gage: "oh that a nice snow flake"
[11:29:33] GM: Gage you notice nothing but UNLIKE a cheesy Grade D horror movie, you start the jeep easy
[11:29:34] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [5] = (5)
[11:29:51] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lmao ))
[11:29:57] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( cheezy horror movies ftw ))
[11:30:00] GM: Ay, you notice that the street corner bears are moving towards you and are drawing weapons
[11:30:43] GM: bartender bear and Slug thrower bear fire at the jeep [1d20+5 and [1d20+4] => 1d20+5 and [1d20+4
[11:30:47] GM: wow…
[11:30:52] GM: [1d20+4] => [10,4] = (14)
[11:30:56] GM: [1d20+5] => [4,5] = (9)
[11:31:07] GM: The jeep suffers paint damage
[11:31:12] GM: but it sounds bad
[11:31:17] 2Lt. Aylanea sighs quickly. "More armed ones coming. I somehow doubt they're law enforcement. Now get us /out/ of here."
[11:31:31] Gage gives it the gas and starts to drive away
[11:31:32] GM: Gage your action
[11:31:33] GM: roll
[11:31:45] Gage: [1d100] => [73] = (73) vs 80
[11:32:29] GM: You peel out like something out of Fast and Furious and zoom away as five bears open fire with SD guns at your MD vehicle you can hear round after round prange off it's armored hide
[11:33:22] Gage slows down once out of sight "Well that could have gone better."
[11:33:26] GM: We will stop here, will our Guild Team escape, what will become of our Hermit team, will they convince the old codger to join? All this, next week! Stay tuned.
[11:33:42] 2Lt. Aylanea tries to radio ahead quietly, to give a brief explanation of what happened to Jaron, anyway.
[11:34:23] Lt. Jaron gives a very very heavy sigh "Komillia really did that?"
