OOC: E, E, S, E is 2+1+1+1=5. You have 6 MOV, so that leaves one to fire. What am I missing?

Unless I'm misinterpreting the smoke grenade rules, I see the situation as follows: Sukuzu is inside the cloud. To leave it E I need to use 1 MOV. The moment I leave it I lose 2 MOV (that effectively means that I need to expend 3 MOV just to leave the smoke). And that leaves me with 3 MOV left - enough to allign myself with the andro, but not enough to open fire. And although I love risk I don't want to be used for target practice Tongue

meep has it right. Moving whilst in smoke consumes double your normal amount of MOV, but there is no extra penalty beyond that. So moving 1E consumes 2 MOV, after that you have 4 left. meeps suggestion would have you use up 3 more MOV, leaving you with one and thus a action point.

Once I get home I need to update the smoke rules, this clearly is  more confusing than I thought.

OOC: It's ok now, I get it. I just assumed that the MOV penalty was separate from actual moving e.g. that you had to move and suffer the penalty. Now I see that the rule is that  it just takes 2 MOV to make 1 step when walking through the smoke. Tnx for clarification  Wink

Summary: use (medkit)
IC: Bach's wounds are hindering him, and he begins to question that God does indeed want him to avoid bandaging them.

OOC: Because in no way am I risking almost certain death by attacking those two Synth. Even if I kill one of them, the other will still have 6 strike dice to use against me.

Since things seem to be a little bit confused (only to expect in battle I suppose), I'll hold up on updating until tonight or tomorrow to let you get your tactics straight. If I see no new posts by tomorrow after work, Sukuzu leaves cover and Bach uses a medikit.

OOC: E, E, S, E is 2+1+1+1=5.

I considered this option, but I could quite easily get caught in the crossfire from andros and get some serious wounds - I wont kill that andro so he will retaliate and that apprentice will get one free shot at me and another chance to slice me when my turn is done; and the other clone can come out from the cover and still have enough AP to open fire (like if they care if that Ilwrath gets his ass friendly fired and dies); I'm all for gunz blazing action, but I'm still not that much frenzied to go kamikaze/suicide king...just it seems to me that this move would be far too much of a gambit, even with the support of the rest of the team (and Bach is not even able to help me out with that plan right now because he's licking his wounds at the moment) Tongue

After the move you're proposing, there will be two other enemies who can only see you. That's not a good thing. Another option is E S S S fire E, while Wawa takes out the Ilwrath.

Even that isn't such a good option, but still better than the previous 2 we proposed (because only one andro will be able to retaliate and the other one will have to risk friendly fire if he wants to shoot through his comrade). But I guess if the second andro decides to shoot through his comrade, there's a great chance that I will end up with 2 HP, 3 if I'm lucky  Tongue Hmmmmm...maybe I could shoot first at *insert target* and then Wawa could throw his smoke grenade E E E and allow us to slowly push forward?

Any further suggestions/tactical options team?

I say Wawa should just throw his spike grenade at the Ilwrath (weaker weapon than the Psychic Slap or a normal grenade) and the others should wait. We're going to lose a lot of HP if we leave the cloud now, we should come later when the Ilwrath has been killed and Bach has more HP.

As for the smoke grenade, the Ilwrath could just hold his ground, and the other Synth might come closer as they wouldn't risk suffering a ranged attack anymore.

Update in one hour. So far I've got one party member bandaging himself, and if Sukuzu doesn't edit any posts he will attack the Ilwrath. You can't retreat N after firing the handgun, it uses up one full AP so you've none left. For clarity, if you are changing any moves, post them after this post so I don't have to wade back through a page of tactical discussion.

Argh, whatever I do, if I reveal myself I'm gonna get some, and something has to be done. So I'm going for the Ilwrath, 3 parries and 5 HP must be worth something; I'd hate it if we would waste a spike grenade/frag grenade on a half dead apprentice - Andros are a far better target for that. And afterward I'll run back to the smoke and politely ask for a medikit  Roll Eyes

IC (repeat): 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*

Summary: E S fire handgun

Farewell, Sukuzu. It was nice knowing you.
