diggers316 (7:16:18 PM): Que dramatic music
CrashCarrie (7:16:38 PM): heehee
CrashCarrie (7:16:39 PM): whee :-)
VVoltronSV (7:17:34 PM): I'm not all here. Or is that not all there?
diggers316 (7:17:48 PM): tomato tamato
VVoltronSV (7:18:52 PM): That would be pronunciation differences, not spelling and would be better served with dictionary-style pronunciation guides.
VVoltronSV (7:19:47 PM): G-95 has grown cat ears
CrashCarrie (7:20:43 PM): lol
CrashCarrie (7:20:51 PM): meow?
diggers316 (7:21:09 PM): /eyes glass over
VVoltronSV (7:21:52 PM): Get the craziness out of your systems now,
diggers316 (7:22:10 PM): i have, just glassed over due to nit pickyness ^_^
VVoltronSV (7:22:54 PM): It's all serious business once the game starts (Children's Card Games not included.)
diggers316 (7:23:47 PM): Shut up Mokuba
diggers316 (7:24:19 PM): ^_^ love Yugi Abridged series
VVoltronSV (7:24:47 PM): It made more sense than the actual Yugioh.
diggers316 (7:24:53 PM): In a world where card game decide the fate of the world…one man stands above them all YUGIOH "I'm bigger then Jesus!"
diggers316 (7:25:10 PM): In America!
CrashCarrie (7:25:50 PM): lolololol
VVoltronSV (7:27:16 PM): But Jesus pilots a giant robot.
diggers316 (7:29:49 PM): Emo Jesus
VVoltronSV (7:30:03 PM): How is chaos emo?
diggers316 (7:30:08 PM): He cuts his own water
diggers316 (7:30:12 PM): it's the hair
VVoltronSV (7:30:56 PM): Moving on…
VVoltronSV (7:31:49 PM): [Game time is now in effect, lollygaggers will be strapped to Revan's bed.]
CrashCarrie (7:32:00 PM): [lol]
VVoltronSV (7:32:08 PM): [The GM is, of course, immune.]
diggers316 (7:33:21 PM): Good, cause Revan would pwn you
CrashCarrie (7:35:17 PM): [ROFL]
CrashCarrie (7:35:21 PM): [;-)]
CrashCarrie (7:35:29 PM): [arg, caps]
VVoltronSV (7:37:48 PM): The Tigers find themselves in a refitted recon pod that has been launched in the distant portions of the system the factory satellite is in. You've been spending time in the mecha checking and triple checking the blow away costumes that make your mecha look like Zentraedi mecha of your choice. Sarah's Z-4 is locked in guardian for the time to limit the need for disguise, Revan is piloting a Bioroid mock-up.
VVoltronSV (7:38:38 PM): [My combined Spiral and Getter energy would overwhelm Revan's Force without so much as a blink from me.]
diggers316 (7:41:52 PM): I wants to be a "Qualude!"
diggers316 (7:41:59 PM): err Quadlunn-Rau
VVoltronSV (7:46:20 PM): Revan had previously laid out plans to disable security devices at the first inspection point, run like mad using the 30 EMPs (10 each) until you reach a data port area that can be hacked into. From there the goals are to disable the AI or the entire electrical system, preference listed in order.
VVoltronSV (7:46:45 PM): [No, you get to be the cannon fodder Battle Pod!]
VVoltronSV (7:49:19 PM): The two of you have been trying to avoid Revan whenever you get the chance, the pod has been set up to send a distress signal in Zentraedi and Tiresian suggesting that there is a RT Master aboard incoming calls cannot be received.
VVoltronSV (7:50:54 PM): Revan walks in: "It look like the satellite has believed our little ruse and has sent some Q-Raus to drag us in. Any last minute questions before we're drug on board?"
diggers316 (7:51:32 PM): "Are we making a beeline for the central computer? Or the fold drive to disable it?"
VVoltronSV (7:51:40 PM): [J/K about the B-Pod, you can LOOK like a Q-Rau if you want, you'll still have only the capabilities of an Alpha though.]
diggers316 (7:51:53 PM): [don't matter to me ^_^ ]
VVoltronSV (7:53:17 PM): Revan: Considering we want the fold drives operational to bring this thing to the Magellan easier, we're going to try and get to the central computer system, wipe it out, and upload a REF built OS to run it.
diggers316 (7:53:57 PM): "yeah.." Suki grumbles "but if it folds with us in it…the Magellan gets squat and we get the shaft…"
VVoltronSV (7:55:10 PM): Revan: Which is exactly why we want the drives in tact. Once we have control of the satellite, we bring it to the Magellan. It was NEVER the plan for the Magellan to come pick us up.
diggers316 (7:55:40 PM): Suki shrugs "Yokai."
CrashCarrie (7:56:27 PM): Sarah frowns a little considering that, and nods. "Right…"
VVoltronSV (7:59:18 PM): Revan: Now remember, it takes 20 minutes between EMP blasts for our EMP shielding to recharge. During that time, it is duck and cover, and do not draw attention to yourselves alright?
diggers316 (8:00:42 PM): "Yokai"
CrashCarrie (8:01:23 PM): Sarah nods quickly. "Right."
VVoltronSV (8:09:09 PM): The Recon Pod is brought into the mecha bay on one of the upper decks. The bay door is cut open by what appears to a multi-armed sphere on legs. It seems to be directing you toward a door. Tiresian fills the radio waves of your mecha. Revan translates by saying that you are being told to disembark your mecha at the door of the hangar bay. He also mentions using the EMP at that point.
diggers316 (8:10:35 PM): As Suki makes her way to debark and activate her EMP she asks "Might not be a bad Idea to play along."
VVoltronSV (8:10:46 PM): The hangar bay runs a gamut of all matter of Zentraedi and Robotech Master mecha, thousands of them. You also see a few skeletal remains, evidently the main research team didn't make it very far.
CrashCarrie (8:11:16 PM): Sarah nods, checking her EMP and getting ready for the mess.
VVoltronSV (8:11:42 PM): Revan: And have our cover completely blown right now? The EMPs are at least designed to make their discharges look accidental.
diggers316 (8:12:04 PM): [or does disembark our mecha mean :leave the recon pod, or leave our mecha?]
VVoltronSV (8:12:39 PM): [Leave your mecha, you are already being forced out of the recon pod by the heavy labor drone.]
diggers316 (8:12:52 PM): [oh, in that case…] POP!
diggers316 (8:13:32 PM): Suki activates the EMP, after moving out of the Recon pod and as close to any mobile units as she can.
CrashCarrie (8:14:10 PM): Sarah frowns just slightly as she sees the research team, moving as far as she can and switching on her own EMP, getting ready to move.
VVoltronSV (8:19:47 PM): [Suki: 9 EMPs, Sarah 9 EMPs, Revan: 10 EMPs] The shock of the dual EMP blast sends the several flying orbs into the walls and forces open the door you see towering hallways leading several different directions. There are massive doors directly in front of you, and two sets mecha moving walkways to your left and right.
diggers316 (8:20:21 PM): "Call the shot Revan!" Suki states
VVoltronSV (8:22:57 PM): Revan: Go straight, it's the only one that doesn't seem to have anything to do with the manufacture of mecha.
diggers316 (8:23:35 PM): "Roger that." Suki moves on thrusters toward she passageway indicated.
CrashCarrie (8:23:39 PM): Sarah nods and moves for straight, adjusting to hurry along while following the others.
diggers316 (8:23:42 PM): she=the
VVoltronSV (8:24:03 PM): As Revan moves forward down that road, a door comes up separating the Tigers from Revan, all attempts to raise him are met with static.
diggers316 (8:24:17 PM): In America!
VVoltronSV (8:24:35 PM): [Use OOC Brackets for that!]
diggers316 (8:24:42 PM): [sorry]
diggers316 (8:25:59 PM): Suki sighs, "Oh well, okay, he's on his own now. Lets head to the main computer. [We are at location 11 right on map?] I think there is an elevator nearby."
VVoltronSV (8:26:52 PM): [You just came out of 16, between 16 and 8.]
diggers316 (8:27:47 PM): N or S?
diggers316 (8:28:49 PM): [nm
VVoltronSV (8:28:53 PM): [16 is at the northern most point on it. 8 is directly south of that]
diggers316 (8:29:05 PM): [for some reason I looked at 18/19]
CrashCarrie (8:29:17 PM): Sarah nods quickly and moves to follow. "Right…"
CrashCarrie (8:29:19 PM): [west]
diggers316 (8:29:29 PM): [kk, Suki will head for the E above 17
VVoltronSV (8:30:48 PM): The path to the elevator is relatively unobstructed, though the walkway does seem to sporadically change direction as if to spite you.
VVoltronSV (8:30:58 PM): [Perception checks.]
diggers316 (8:31:36 PM): [Before I get accused of meta gaming here, do we have a map like this, that we are seeing (maybe from the old Robotech factory captured a while back, if they are of the same layout?]
OnlineHost (8:31:43 PM): diggers316 rolled 1 20-sided die: 5
diggers316 (8:31:45 PM): +3
OnlineHost (8:32:10 PM): CrashCarrie rolled 1 20-sided die: 3
CrashCarrie (8:32:14 PM): [+1]
VVoltronSV (8:32:37 PM): The Tigers notice all writing is in Zentraedi AND Tiresian.
diggers316 (8:32:58 PM): [And they didn't give us a translation program?]
diggers316 (8:33:04 PM): [They = UEEF]
VVoltronSV (8:33:34 PM): [Yes, and it is the only reason you know which way to the elevator.]
VVoltronSV (8:33:44 PM): [Suki, doesn't have a map.]
diggers316 (8:33:54 PM): [kk]
VVoltronSV (8:34:27 PM): [That sucking sound you just heard was plot holes sealing themselves shut.]
diggers316 (8:34:36 PM): [Based on our intell, where should we focus our search for the main computer?]
CrashCarrie (8:34:44 PM): [lol]
VVoltronSV (8:35:28 PM): [The center of the ship.]
CrashCarrie (8:35:41 PM): [language check to understand the writing?]
diggers316 (8:35:57 PM): {so, how many levels? If we are at 1, that means we are at the bottom right?]
diggers316 (8:36:16 PM): [I have no lang skill relevant to this unless there is kanji somewhere]
CrashCarrie (8:36:36 PM): [Sarah has literacy Zentraedi at 64%]
VVoltronSV (8:37:04 PM): [They are 6 buttons]
VVoltronSV (8:37:27 PM): [Sarah is gonna have to roll every time she tries reading Zent]
CrashCarrie (8:37:40 PM): [oh wait, we have translators. Duh. me silly]
VVoltronSV (8:38:13 PM): [Pick a button, any button but one]
diggers316 (8:39:33 PM): Suki: Well, lets hit three, or four, thats closest to the center if we are on 1
diggers316 (8:39:37 PM): [yay maths]
CrashCarrie (8:39:51 PM): Sarah nods just a little bit. "Your choice, ma'am."
diggers316 (8:40:58 PM): [Suki in regards the Zent and Tiresian lang looks like this.]
diggers316 (8:41:04 PM): Suki presses 3
CrashCarrie (8:41:30 PM): [lol]
VVoltronSV (8:44:41 PM): The floor seems fall out from beneath as you are rocketed at hypersonic speeds to floor 4. [Oh that whiplash!] The door opens and you see several half-naked Zentraedi males with towels wrapped around their neck taking an apparent jog.
VVoltronSV (8:44:58 PM): [This may seem silly but there is a point to it.]
diggers316 (8:45:18 PM): [We're in 'battle pods' right?]
diggers316 (8:45:42 PM): [or rather Suki, in a Qualude]
VVoltronSV (8:45:46 PM): [Correct, though it appears the Sarah outranks you by being in an officer pod/]
diggers316 (8:46:25 PM): Suki, in her Qualude, lets Sarah take point on this
diggers316 (8:46:40 PM): [yes, I'm calling it a Quaelude]
VVoltronSV (8:47:05 PM): [Que Lewd?]
diggers316 (8:47:12 PM): [Indeed!]
CrashCarrie (8:47:55 PM): Sarah steps off the lift in Mecha, taking a look around, trying /not/ to look at the boys. She does switch on her radio to Suki. "Gotta love the views…" She laughs then.
diggers316 (8:48:40 PM): [Suki is uninterested in the manz] If you say so… she replies.
VVoltronSV (8:50:14 PM): [brb, for viewing pleasure]
CrashCarrie (8:50:36 PM): Sarah doesn't pay too much attention, simply moving out and trying to make it look authoritative as she glances in a direction and heads that way, ostensibly to find a map.
CrashCarrie (8:55:13 PM): [Suzumia Haruhi. Seen that tons of times on TVTropes]
diggers316 (8:56:05 PM): I'll do you one better!
diggers316 (8:57:05 PM): ^_^
VVoltronSV (9:01:20 PM): [You're in Compartment 4 about dead center, pick a direction, up/down, left/right, a direction that force all laws of physics? And I've watched Haruhi long before I knew about TV Tropes website]
CrashCarrie (9:01:45 PM): [haven't watched, just know its troperiffic]
CrashCarrie (9:01:50 PM): [and right]
diggers316 (9:02:52 PM): Suki points West
VVoltronSV (9:03:19 PM): [er in cockpit or using mecha?]
diggers316 (9:03:26 PM): Using the mecha
VVoltronSV (9:04:22 PM): The joggers seem to notice Suki's odd behavior and run back up to you screaming primarily at Suki as if she had broken military protocol.
VVoltronSV (9:04:53 PM): [AND USE OCC BRACKETS OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES!]
diggers316 (9:04:54 PM): Suki turns on them and adopts a threatening posture. as if to say "back off before I KILL YOU!"
VVoltronSV (9:05:36 PM): [Chris your IQ is going South, fast.]
diggers316 (9:06:22 PM): [What do you want from me, I'm playing as Meltrandi would, no way in HELL am i gonna let some Zentrans' accost me' plus pointing isn't that bad..
VVoltronSV (9:07:13 PM): [Telling your superior what to do is.]
diggers316 (9:07:30 PM): [Maybe I was pointing out something TO my superior? hmm?]
diggers316 (9:07:57 PM): [Like say 'Sir, check that out.' /point]
CrashCarrie (9:08:05 PM): Sarah turns her big mech and offers a 'shrug' with her hands, and moves for the other direction, only stopping to turn at the accusatory Zentraedi, weapon arms held casually at the sides. She offers a 'nodding' motion to Suki with her mecha.
diggers316 (9:08:21 PM): [Now I have to play it up as if they are running up ON my superior and I have to PROTECT him]
CrashCarrie (9:08:29 PM): [well, with the weapon arm 'hands'] :p
diggers316 (9:08:39 PM): [least thats how I see it ^_^ ]
diggers316 (9:09:30 PM): [Could also be an 'Over this way sir…']
VVoltronSV (9:11:38 PM): The two of you move away from the angry Zentraedi and head over to what appears to a large set of doors at the corner of another junction.
diggers316 (9:13:30 PM): [Based on the writing on the wall (if translatable) which way to 'Central command' or 'computer center'?]
diggers316 (9:14:51 PM): Suki: "This is not good, no one said this place would be fully manned."
VVoltronSV (9:15:13 PM): [You see signs for: Gym, Weapons Locker, Mess, Stasis pods, barracks, and holographic simulator, but no computer or central command.]
CrashCarrie (9:16:08 PM): Sarah frowns and nods just a little bit. "No, no one did. Just our luck, yes?" She sighs into her radio and frowns. "Back for another level, or…" She hrms.
diggers316 (9:16:35 PM): 'I say we head towards the stasis pods, puts us away from those jokers and gives us someplace semi official to be heading towards, might even catch more wall signs on the way.'
diggers316 (9:17:25 PM): [Suki is recording all of this by the way…just in case, for intell purposes]
CrashCarrie (9:19:02 PM): Sarah nods quickly and turns in that direction. "Right."
VVoltronSV (9:19:51 PM): Finding no new signs prior to reaching the stasis pods, you enter the room to try and figure out what going on.
VVoltronSV (9:19:57 PM): [PERC checks]
OnlineHost (9:20:07 PM): diggers316 rolled 1 20-sided die: 1
diggers316 (9:20:10 PM): +3
diggers316 (9:20:14 PM): [DURRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!]
VVoltronSV (9:21:23 PM): [Suki walks into one of the pods and is frozen for the remainder of the game, Chris will now be playing a Cthulhu spawn that drives everyone clinically insane]
VVoltronSV (9:21:29 PM): [Carrie?]
OnlineHost (9:21:37 PM): CrashCarrie rolled 1 20-sided die: 1
CrashCarrie (9:21:41 PM): [+1]
CrashCarrie (9:21:45 PM): [epicfail]
VVoltronSV (9:23:12 PM): [Fission Mailed in three more bad rolls or 1 bad decision.]
diggers316 (9:23:43 PM): [looks like we are Cuthulu spawn there Carrie!]
VVoltronSV (9:23:44 PM): Nothing to see here just some female Zentraedi in glass capsules.
diggers316 (9:24:01 PM): [What are you talking bout! Thats plenty to see!!!]
CrashCarrie (9:24:07 PM): [les yay ;-)]
diggers316 (9:24:18 PM): Suki: "ohh she's pretty, , ooooh and that one, damn nice set on her…"
CrashCarrie (9:24:38 PM): Sarah laughs a little bit and shakes her head. "Uh… huh."
diggers316 (9:25:34 PM): [Not really fair to ruin the mission based on an RNG, in my opinion…]
diggers316 (9:27:21 PM): Suki "Well, lets find the nearest elevator and try down a level."
CrashCarrie (9:27:41 PM): Sarah nods quickly and looks for the nearest elevator, to get onto it. "Right."
VVoltronSV (9:28:05 PM): [It won't fail mission based on bad rolls, but the bad rolls are upping difficulty rating by entire order of magnitude.]
diggers316 (9:28:20 PM): [Not my fault I rolled a 1 >.<]
VVoltronSV (9:29:02 PM): [But it does mean that Suki doesn't notice things that would help piece things together and actually go in the right direction.]
CrashCarrie (9:29:38 PM): [or my fault. AIM dice are just fracked up]
VVoltronSV (9:30:01 PM): [AND I threw a clue your way anyway and you seem to be ignoring it.]
VVoltronSV (9:30:25 PM): [and no, I won't spell it out for ya.]
diggers316 (9:31:22 PM): [Sorry if it was obscure, but really, what, the gym? And no big deal really, hell, if anything we're MORE in character, none of have been on a Robotech Factory before, hell Suki's never even been aboard Space Station Liberty..]
diggers316 (9:32:23 PM): Suki pauses,
diggers316 (9:33:01 PM): "Lets go back to where we got off, if anything it's an elevator."
VVoltronSV (9:33:25 PM): [OK, think, you pressed 3 and ended up on 4, what did you first see? What have you most recently seen?]
diggers316 (9:33:35 PM): A gym, of sorts
diggers316 (9:33:40 PM): so we need to go down
CrashCarrie (9:33:45 PM): Sarah nods quickly at that. "Right. That's the plan." She glances around a little still, pondering a little bit.
CrashCarrie (9:33:49 PM): [awake Zentraedi]
CrashCarrie (9:34:07 PM): [or the floor falling out
VVoltronSV (9:34:18 PM): [You two don't play detective games a lot do you?]
diggers316 (9:34:19 PM): and most recently, asleep FEMALE Zentraedi
CrashCarrie (9:34:31 PM): [no, we don't.]
diggers316 (9:34:44 PM): [that would be a no, and for the record I hated Myst!]
VVoltronSV (9:34:59 PM): [I was thinking more Sherlock Holmes.]
VVoltronSV (9:35:13 PM): [Or Still Life.]
CrashCarrie (9:35:19 PM): [nope]
diggers316 (9:35:27 PM): [Sorry buddy, how bout Suki rolls an intellroll.]
OnlineHost (9:35:34 PM): diggers316 rolled 1 100-sided die: 49
diggers316 (9:35:53 PM): [missed by 1]
CrashCarrie (9:36:00 PM): [lol arg]
VVoltronSV (9:36:10 PM): [Ok, the first thing you saw were MALE Zents and now you've seen FEMALE Zents on the SAME floor. Doesn't that scream something is wrong?]
diggers316 (9:36:23 PM): [what the fuck, I'll roll Military Fortifications, since we are in one, kinda]
CrashCarrie (9:36:23 PM): [oh, that., Was thinking that once.]
OnlineHost (9:36:28 PM): diggers316 rolled 1 100-sided die: 29
CrashCarrie (9:36:30 PM): [lol]
diggers316 (9:36:34 PM): that is a success under a 45%
diggers316 (9:37:20 PM): [No not really! Note To Suki…female and male Zents are fine on the smae floor, since one half, the ladies are all frozen, no interaction.]
CrashCarrie (9:37:36 PM): [where males could walk in and see them naked?]
diggers316 (9:37:48 PM): [Why would they?]
diggers316 (9:38:02 PM): [they would probably never go near because of orders]
diggers316 (9:39:12 PM): [I'm also trying not to meta game based on clues given out, trying to play in character here, as best I can. so, going back to where we got off seems best so we can try from 'square one' again]
VVoltronSV (9:40:01 PM): [Ok, time to rewrite this adventure, clearly the right sort of thought processes necessary to actually win it are kinda absent. NOTE: I'm saying your dumb, it's just you don't think in a problem solving/detective type way.]
VVoltronSV (9:40:22 PM): [ER, NOT saying you're dumb/]
diggers316 (9:40:24 PM): wow, 'we're dumb…
VVoltronSV (9:40:31 PM): [Sorry about that.]
CrashCarrie (9:40:35 PM): [was gonna say, rofl]
CrashCarrie (9:40:46 PM): [thought that was a typo]
diggers316 (9:40:53 PM): [We're trying here, but in our defense, we
diggers316 (9:41:13 PM): 'need a bit more description if we are to be able to use deductive reasoning]
diggers316 (9:41:33 PM): [and yeah our perc rolls have been the fail…]
CrashCarrie (9:42:03 PM): [an Invid and a Marine Commando do not qualify as detectives. Sarah is on extremely foreign territory trying not to be nervous]
VVoltronSV (9:42:30 PM): [the reason I said it was getting more difficult was because you were missing clues, even though I gave ones anyway]
CrashCarrie (9:42:53 PM): [yes, well… use the cluebat harder :p]
VVoltronSV (9:43:56 PM): [Anyway, I used the wrong sort of adventure, though in my defense, this sort of adventure was kinda suggested in the Return of the Masters book about how G-95 "tests" its intruders.]
CrashCarrie (9:44:44 PM): [anyway, I /did/ notice it4 kinda, and wondered, just hadn't said anything yet :p]
VVoltronSV (9:44:54 PM): [1+3]
VVoltronSV (9:45:29 PM): [take a break and let me figure out how to adjust this to fit your play styles.]
CrashCarrie (9:45:33 PM): [one is an epic fail]
CrashCarrie (9:45:36 PM): [:p]
diggers316 (9:45:40 PM): [Right, but so far we have kept 'under the radar', and I chalk up the lack of info as Revan keeping info from us to keep himself valuable and indepensible, and then he gets cut off from us right out the gates and we are left to flounder.]
CrashCarrie (9:46:08 PM): [yeah]
CrashCarrie (9:46:42 PM): [probably mind-frakking Zents all the way to claim he did it himself, after sealing us off :-P]
CrashCarrie (9:50:21 PM): [too bad I can't use the old pennmush tactic with Sarah]
CrashCarrie (9:50:52 PM): [she might be able to do it IC, but would get seen]
diggers316 (9:50:57 PM): [hehe]
CrashCarrie (9:51:20 PM): [the old torture joke on penn was to teleport someone through every room, so the text would scroll by endlessly]
VVoltronSV (9:53:40 PM): [Got it let's GO!]
VVoltronSV (9:55:35 PM): As you exit the stasis room the two joggers run right THROUGH you, giving off a weird flicker. One of them gives you a weird sort of grin before fizzling out of existence, with two orbs floating a few meters above where they were.
CrashCarrie (9:56:53 PM): Sarah… stares at that. "Holograms…" She grumbles. "But why, unless they know we're here?"
VVoltronSV (9:59:16 PM): The orbs go flying off toward where you made the turn to where the elevator goes.
diggers316 (10:00:33 PM): "Follow the orbs?" Suki offers
diggers316 (10:03:03 PM): "Seems if there are holos of Zents about, might make it look to outsiders that the place is fully operational." Suki grumbles. "We've probably already been made and now the system is toying with us."
CrashCarrie (10:04:03 PM): Sarah sighs a bit and nods. "My thought certainly."
VVoltronSV (10:04:08 PM): As you approach the elevator the orbs just been sitting there and go flying UP the chute.
diggers316 (10:04:45 PM): "Up it is." Suki steps into the tube and engages her thrusters to follow the orbs upwards.
CrashCarrie (10:06:10 PM): Sarah nods and follows behind, engaging the thrusters on the pod as well.
VVoltronSV (10:07:10 PM): As the Q-Rau disguise falls off (the thrusters at the level of speed disengages the disguises automatically) one of the orbs seems to notice and does a light beam scan of Suki's Alpha and Sarah's Z-4.
diggers316 (10:07:37 PM): Suki gulps, but refrains from cursing.
VVoltronSV (10:08:51 PM): The orbs go flying off the elevator and immediately head south two floors up.
diggers316 (10:09:19 PM): "Keep after them." Suki says, and switches to guardian mode to better follow
VVoltronSV (10:11:04 PM): They stop just short of a small exit with two red Bioroids and 5 battle pod like craft guarding each Bioroid.
VVoltronSV (10:11:27 PM): [That would be 10 of the Primary Defense Drones.]
CrashCarrie (10:11:31 PM): Sarah keeps following Suki, frowning at the scan. "Great…"
diggers316 (10:11:54 PM): Suki brings the Alpha to a hover and regards the situation. "What the..?
VVoltronSV (10:11:58 PM): [Run? Or init rolls?]
diggers316 (10:12:09 PM): [wait
diggers316 (10:12:15 PM): [need clarification here]
diggers316 (10:12:58 PM): [are the Bioroids being guarded but he drones as in guarding them like a warden guards a prisoner, or are they ALL guarding the door?]
diggers316 (10:13:50 PM): [or are the pods acting as BACK up to the Bioroids?]
VVoltronSV (10:14:06 PM): [The pods are the Bioroids' posse.]
diggers316 (10:14:14 PM): [Oh shit!]
CrashCarrie (10:14:29 PM): [extreme oh shit]
CrashCarrie (10:14:49 PM): [thought we'd need init rolls /to/ retreat]
diggers316 (10:15:33 PM): Suki will jet upwards at max speed leaving a spread of 10 missiles in her wake to hinder pursuit.
VVoltronSV (10:16:14 PM): [surprise round, exactly who are you firing at and strike roll.]
diggers316 (10:17:07 PM): [I don't care this is more a area effect thing trying to damage as many as possible as much as possible on my way out.]
OnlineHost (10:17:15 PM): diggers316 rolled 1 20-sided die: 11
diggers316 (10:18:04 PM): [going for blast radius damage overlap here]
VVoltronSV (10:18:17 PM): [no bonuses?]

diggers316 (10:22:27 PM): 70 each
diggers316 (10:22:48 PM): if they are all close together, that may be x6 based on blast radius…
VVoltronSV (10:23:21 PM): [The scatter kinda killed that.]
diggers316 (10:23:32 PM): [okie dokie]
VVoltronSV (10:24:35 PM): The enemies scatter but the missiles find their mark on four of the battle pods, and completely vaporize by the hit of a single missile.
VVoltronSV (10:25:10 PM): However, they do not seem to be following.
CrashCarrie (10:25:23 PM): Sarah just jets upward, not having missiles to waste, hoping Suki's shot covers the retreat. Not enough missiles on hers to do much really.
diggers316 (10:26:01 PM): [Are they firing at us?]
CrashCarrie (10:27:18 PM): [we jetted upward, if they aren't following, probably not]
VVoltronSV (10:27:55 PM): [I repeat:] However, they do not seem to be following.
VVoltronSV (10:28:13 PM): [That includes fire.]
diggers316 (10:28:21 PM): [I heard, but that doesn't mean the couldn't fire on us…]
diggers316 (10:28:28 PM): [kk]
VVoltronSV (10:28:45 PM): [And apart from hitting the ceiling, you're not gonna find anything up there.]
diggers316 (10:29:00 PM): Suki pauses up a ways (outside of know weapons range, just in case) and regards the situation.
diggers316 (10:30:08 PM): Suki will do a scan of the area she hit, did she hit actual mecha, or just 'dispel' holograms?]
VVoltronSV (10:31:42 PM): There is wreckage on the ground, however, the ceiling ain't that high, and you are AT BEST 60 meters from the ground.
VVoltronSV (10:32:08 PM): One of the Bioroids occasionally looks up to you as if it would laugh if it could.
diggers316 (10:32:56 PM): Suki is scared, but maintains her hover. "What gives?" she asks rhetorically.
CrashCarrie (10:34:37 PM): Sarah frowns from her cockpit and sighs. "Thinks we're idiots, from the looks…"
diggers316 (10:35:16 PM): "Yeah, but they look to be guarding where we want to go."
VVoltronSV (10:35:50 PM): [You saw how easy those things blow-up]
VVoltronSV (10:36:33 PM): [You also have EMPs.]
diggers316 (10:36:36 PM): [Rp going on here lol]
CrashCarrie (10:37:33 PM): Sarah nods a little bit. "EMP? Or do we keep it entertained by blowing more things up? Or what?"
VVoltronSV (10:37:40 PM): [I'm aware, but there's a limit to how far I can wait on an apparent flop of logic.]
diggers316 (10:37:41 PM): Suki lines up an EMP and targets it dead center of the remaining 'enemy'
diggers316 (10:37:53 PM): [understood]
VVoltronSV (10:38:12 PM): [strike roll for grins and giggles.]

VVoltronSV (11:43:18 PM): [This is why I prefer beam-spammers to missile-boats.]
CrashCarrie (11:45:15 PM): Sarah ponders then, and looks for a map. "Wonder if there's an armory on this floor. If there are mecha here… Or something else useful."
