OOC: Wubula closes the door and goes home. Just kidding:
IC: Wubula moves S and ignites her smoke grenade. Instead of throwing it, she puts it down so that the entire team is screened from incoming fire (with herself in the NE corner of the 4 central squares). She takes care to take note of where she puts it, so that she can quickly kick it away if the need arises.

Thank you. I rather liked it myself.

OOC: New plan: Bach moves N E S and fires at the Androsynth, and then Wubula throws the smoke granade on ourselves, preventing the enemy from using long range weapons on us. Then next turn, we can step out of the smoke and fire again.

Props, I vote meep (Wubula) for our team leader  Grin told you there's no need for panic.

Mr Bach moves forward, propelled by righteous rage. Despite its agility and training, the Androsynth is unable to dodge these hatefilled bullets, which tear through its synthetic flesh. Grimacing with pain, it has no time to react before Wubula drops her grenade, noxious smoke filling the corridor and room.

The Ilwrath, enraged by it wounds charges towards the enemy. A shouted command from the Androsynth brings it to its senses, and instead of charging blindly it stops and lets a spike grenade fly. Inside the smoke, sharp pieces of debris fly, impaling both Mr Bach and Sukuzu.

The Androsynth, are clearly contemplating calling for reinforcements. However, having witnessed Sukuzus speed and Wawas deadly powers they come to the conclusion that they'll never make it to the door. Instead they take cover and prepare for the worst.


Map:



OOC: Bach scores two bullseyes, leaving one Synth with 1 HP. Ilwrath spike grenade causes -2 HP for Sukuzu and -1 HP for Bach, Wubula and Wawa surprisingly evade damage completely. The Androsynth are in cover behind the beds, but this doesn't give them any special advantage since they are blankets on the floor. You can't move through them though.

Moving through smoke halves your movement points, so moving one square takes two MOV.

All in all an interesting turn.

OOC: You cheat at your own game. Tongue We were supposed to be untargettable by ranged weapons inside the smoke. And the debris took one more HP than a direct hit would have taken. Oh well. Could you please send the cloud sprite behind the unit sprites, by the way? Oh, and Wubula should have 4/5 HP, not 3/5.

So, team, what are we doing now? The Ilwrath can charge at us next turn, so we have to do something about him. I suggest we have Sukuzu move E S fire N W, which gives us a 5/9 chance of success. We could use a Psychic Slap or a grenade if this doesn't work.

OOC: So can Wubula kick away the smoke granade? And would that give the others more use of their movement points this turn?

I don't think so, but I might have missed something. In that case I'll correct it of course.

Yes, but you can throw grenades anywhere. At 2 STR the Ilwrath can throw the grenade 4 squares, where it detonates smoke or no smoke.

Quote
And the debris took one more HP than a direct hit would have taken.

I don't get this. Wawa got three strikes, the rest of you two. His all missed, as did Wubulas. Sukuzu got two hits, you one. What do you mean by direct hit?

Quote
Oh well. Could you please send the cloud sprite behind the unit sprites, by the way?

No, you're inside the smoke.

Quote
Oh, and Wubula should have 4/5 HP, not 3/5.

Whoops, don't know how that happened. Good catch, I'l go back and fix it later.

Keep in mind that while you can't used ranged weaponry inside the smoke, you can lob grenades just as well as the Ilwrath. A certain soldier in perfect position for this comes to mind.

While this is a good idea, the smoke grenade empties straight away. It takes several turns for the released smoke to dissipate. So no.

Also, while I remember. I'm going away on a trip on Friday and returning on Thursday night. I won't have internet access, so the last update will be on Thursday, and the next one the following Friday.

OOC: My thoughts exactly.

IC: Damn smoke! I can't see one frelling thing in here. How can I fight something when I don't even know where I am in this forsaken cloud? *curses* Arrrgh. Enraged from his wounds and temporary blindness produced by smoke, Sukuzu wipes the blood from his brow and decides to jump out off cover and finish what he started. I always hated the sneaky way; there's no honor in that *hrmpf* He leaps E tumbles to the side S and points his gun at the charging apprentice *gives a cold look to the Ilwrath* - Time to squish yet another bug - *pulls the trigger*

EDIT: after firing Sukuzu will retreat N (if possible) to try and get at least some sort of improvised cover. So, summary: E S fire handgun N

Also, while I remember. I'm going away on a trip on Friday and returning on Thursday night. I won't have internet access, so the last update will be on Thursday, and the next one the following Friday.

Awwwwwwww Tongue ah well, what can you do.

Not sure if you both misunderstood it, or just Yeti, but moving E will take two MOV since you're in the smoke to begin with. So moving E S wil consume three MOV, meaning that there is no retreat after firing. Or maybe I just read you wrong. The same holds true for stepping into a smoke square, that also takes 2 MOV. I'll update item rules to make this clearer, sorry for any confusion. Update tomorrow.

OOC: Another option is to stay in the cloud and just throw a granade at the Ilwrath. And we also have the choice of retreating and waiting until the smoke clears.

My confusion stemmed from the fact that I misread "spike grenade" as "spike", so that's why I thought the Ilwrath fired from the Paingiver.

I'd rather use that grenade on the andros and not on almost-and-very-soon-he-will-be-dead space spider.

So moving E S wil consume three MOV, meaning that there is no retreat after firing.

Who said anything about retreating? Kyaiieeee!  Grin

The point would not be to just kill it, but to kill it without exposing ourselves to retaliation. But if we are going to expose ourselves (and I say "we" even though Wubula won't be in a position to do any damage this turn), then I would suggest that Wawa moves E and fires at the Ilwrath, and then Sukuzu goes E E S E and then fires S. And then Bach can move E S and fire E, though if he misses entirely, he's going to be in trouble. Wubula can either come in too, in the hope that she can do anything useful next turn, or she can move north so that we may be able to attack the room to the north of the Androsynth bedroom from two sides later, if that is in fact a single room.

I can't move in one turn all the way to the southernmost andro, because I lose 2 MOV just for leaving the cloud; that's why I want to off the Ilwrath - we need to do at least a bit damage this turn and stay mobile if the clones try to run Tongue
