Come on, Yeti, Dabir and Son. Positions please and also tell me who is opening the door with the keycard (-1 AP).

Wawa takes up a position on top of the ilwrath corpse 1 square away from the door.

It seems our game has slowed down quite a bit lately, but we're getting close to the end now. Yeti, get a move on. If I don't hear from you before tomorrow, I'll have to temporarily reassign your character.

As an aside, I detect a certain slowness and lack of enthusiasm from certain parties. If you're getting tired of playing, I'd prefer if you let me know rather than just drag your feet. I can always reassign your units if you've lost interest, or (worst case scenario) shut things down. I've learned a lot already from this first run, which will hopefully serve to improve the game. But I would like to see the mission get finished.

Fine, meep-eep is in charge of Bach for the week to come (unless he wants to cede him to someone else) on account of being the most active player of late.

Sukuzu's move would place him on the same square as Wubula. No matter, in the interest of speed, I'll put Wubula on the western square.
Bach will take place one square south of Wubula.
And Wubula will open the door.

Maybe Dabir should take control of Bach, so he/she gets to do something else than have Wawa run after the rest of the team.

After spending a while redecorating the control room, our heroes feel relatively sure that anyone coming at them from there will be severely delayed. Switching gear with each other, they nervously approach the locked door.

Before they can open it, Wawa scans the odd knife, marvelling at what he finds. The knife is old, made by some unknown Ilwrath in days gone by. There is no hatred and anger here, only a pure beauty that wrenches at his heart. This dagger is a beautiful as the bauble he once carried and can be used much in the same way.

Wubula extends her hand with the key card and slides it into the reader. After a few beeps, the door soundlessly splits down the middle and retracts into the walls. A new corrdidor opens up in front of our heroes. Mindful of the enemy close by, they prepare for battle.


Map:


OOC: Sounds fair meep, if Dabir is up for it he can control Bach until Yeti comes back or for the rest of the mission, whichever comes first.

So Wawa can recharge a power with the knife? Can it still be used as a weapon afterwards? And also, checking the Pretty Bauble's page it seems to be a little unclear as to what it can or cannot recharge.

Regardless, I think there's probably only one obvious way to go from here: If Wawa can recharge Psychic Blast it should do so, then Bach should probably step N-N, checking which of the enemies we can actually see. On the basis that both the enemies N of Wubula and Suzuku are visible, Bach should fire W, followed by Wubula going N-W and firing W, Wawa moving N-N and firing E and then finishing with Suzuku moving N-E and meleeing. Sound good?

Wubula is already down 1 AP, so Wubula should move N, and perhaps fire, then Bach can move N N W, and fire, and then the rest of your plan.

Sorry for not being clear. After usage, it becomes a Boring Knife, but that can still be used as a weapon. If you want to recharge your power before attacking, just say so. It won't consume AP since you would have had time to do that while we were in the free phase. Anyhow I'll get to your moves pretty soon, but I assume your attack is the regular gun and not something else?

As our heroes fling themselves into the corridor, carnage erupts. Two Ilwrtah Warriors are poised in front of one door each, apparently guarding whatever lies beyond. Once more, the Warriors prove their mettle. Even surprised, they are not easy pickings. Wubulas shots glance harmlessly of a carapace, and Mr Bach does no better. Wawa, gentle being that he is fudges his shot completely, spike clattering harmlessly against the ceiling. Only Sukuzu has some limited success, managing to inflict a blow strong enough to daze his enemy. But even with this great start, his enemy manages to evade is following blow.

But our heroes aren't the only ones in trouble here. The Warriors are clearly stunned by the onslaught. The one by Sukuzu flails his Bonecrusher uselessly through the air, hitting nothing and leaving himself wide open for a counter attack. His ally fares somewhat better, causing grim havoc with a deadly spike grenade. Barbed painful spikes bury themselves deep within Wubula, Wawa and Bach. His follow up shot is skillfulyl doged by Mr Bach, who twists and turns. Having been fired at an angle to impact on Bach's head, the plasma sails on harmlessly over Wubula and buries itself in the ceiling and causing a rain of sparks.


Map:



OOC: Wubula scores two hits, Ilwrath parries. Bach scores one hit, Ilwrath parries. Wawa scores no hits. Sukuzu scores one bullseye and one hit. Ilwrath rolls stun. Sukuzu scores a further hit on his next attack, but the Ilwrath rolls a parry again! End result; east Ilwrath is at -1 HP and -1 AP, Western Ilwrath sustains no injuries.

Enemy turn. Eastern Ilwrath attacks once with Bonecrusher. Swing misses completely. Western Ilwrath throws Spike grenade centred on Wubula. Wubula loses 1 HP, Bach 2 HP and Wawa 1 HP. He then fires his plasma weapon, scoring two further hits on Bach. Bach parries both hits. The explanation for why it doesn't hit his allies who are all standing in a single file isn't very good, but it'll have to do.

Phew, that had the potential to go much worse. Been a long time since we saw action this intense.

Wawa ducks around the corner, reloading its Paingiver. Taking its mind away from the sounds of battle, it gazes at its knife, recharging Psychic Blast.

OOC: I think Sukuzu should fall back to the hallway or melee the western Ilwrath so any of  you guys could earn XP on these evil guys...erm, aliens that are blocking our path. So, unless someone comes up with a better plan:

IC: Seeing how unskilled his opponent is, unworthy of bearing the title of a Warrior, he turns his behind to him, kicks some dust from the floor at his...face...and chooses to leave him at mercy of his teammates. He then charges W W W W W pass his comrades to meet his next opponent. Shadrenaline rises in him as he sees the spikes on the floor and plasma dripping from the burned walls...this one, may prove challenging enough *grins while his tongue is lashing from his mouth as he runs* *and then* *HOOOOOOWL!!!!*

summary: W W W W W, paws of fury

BTW: as you may or may not know, as of this day, we're enjoying the SC: BEL for exactly 120 days/5 months! Cheesy...and that's a long way to go with an forum strategy/rpg game. Way to go Luki&nice going all! I hope it'll last at least twice this much Wink

I was thinking more along the lines of this:
  • Bach moves W, and fires W twice.
  • Sukuzu claws at the Ilwrath once.
Then, depending on the outcome, we have a few more options:
  • Wubula moves W W W and fire W.
  • Wubula moves W W W and then use the stun baton twice.
  • Wubula moves W, throws a spike granade, W or E, and then maybe uses confusion.
In combination with:
  • Sukuzu moves W W, Wawa fires E, moves S, Sukuzu fires E.
  • Sukuzu claws again, Wawa moves W and throws a spike granade at the western Ilwrath.
  • Sukuzu claws again, Wawa throws a spike granade just past the eastern Ilwrath.
  • Wawa moves W, Sukuzu moves W, Sukuzu fires E, Wawa throws a granade at either Ilwrath.
  • Wawa moves W, Sukuzu moves W, Wawa throws a granade at either Ilwrath, Sukuzu moves E and claws the Ilwrath again.
  • Wawa recharges one of his/her/its powers and uses that power.

I don't want to risk either of the Ilwrath firing a single shot at us, so whatever we don't kill, should be stunned or confused. Only Sukuzu can afford to catch another blast head on.

Hmm... Sukuzu is still listed as wielding the table shield. That wasn't my intention, and it doesn't look like Luki counted it in the last turn.
