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.

Yeah, he took it off after the last fight, just forgot to update.

Since you seem to be somewhat in the middle of laying plans, I'll give you til tomorrow before I update. At that point I'll execute the moves posted so far sequentially as far as it is possible. Since Dabir is in charge of Bach, he needs to rememebr to move that unit as well.

I am firmly in agreement with the W-shoot/suzuku melee idea. I'd suggest that the Stun Baton might be the best idea, and that Wawa should probably duck back to reload and recharge as earlier post.

Let's just do the first part first, and then decide after we see the result.

As Wawa gazes into the beauty of his ancient relic, Mr. Bach has other plans. Bent on punishing the filthy heathen aliens, he unleashes two volleys of deadly shots from his rifle. The Warrior proves a worthy adversary. His tough carapace deflects most of the hits, only a single bullet penetrating his lower abdomen. He hisses in pain and recoils, as foul liquids begin seeping out from the wound.

Thus, he is unprepared for the carnage that is Sukuzu. Sharp claws rip at his vulnerable legs, nearly dismembering two of them in the process. The Warrior reacts with admirable speed, quickly dodging the rest of Sukuzus barrage.


Map:



OOC: Since Dabir posted that he partially agrees with meeps plan, I executed his moves for Wawa and Bach first. Then I did Sons move, since he hasn't changed it or said anything about the proposed plan. That means that Wubula can't continue onwards in accordance to the plan, there is nowhere for her to stand.

Bach first shot scores one hit, which is parried. Second shot scores two hits, one of which is parried. Warrior is -1 HP. Sukuzu hits the enemy with one bullseye, the other three hits miss. Western Ilwrath is now at 1 HP total. Dabir has Psychic blast and a reloaded Paingiver.

Erm... I was suggesting an alternative plan, not something to be mixed with the old plan... this is going to hurt...

I'm not posting my move yet as I only have a few minutes right now, and I have to calculate some probabilities first.

I suggest that Wubula drink a chemical cocktail, then try and melee the warrior to the east.

Sorry, but I said I'd execute the moves as far as possible. Dabir clearly agreed with you on moving Bach but not on moving  Wawa. He posted first so I executed those first. Son didn't post any agreements with your plan at all, so I moved him second in accordance with his post since he posted second. The end result is that there is only Wubula left to move before the Ilwrath get heir turn. Not a great position to be in, but the one the players opted for. The alternative would have been for me to wait longer and see if there was any more discussion, but that means more days of waiting which the game can hardly afford.

I suggest that Wubula drink a chemical cocktail, then try and melee the warrior to the east.


Drinking a cocktail consumes 1 AP, leaving her with 1AP/2MOV. That means she can't melee her enemy, only fire upon him.

I would expect that you'd only perform the part which was specified as a move, not as a plan (in development).
But I'll make lemon juice.

Wubula throws the spike granade W of the western Ilwrath, then moves E, protecting Wawa, and then drinks the cocktail.

In hindsight, I probably should have done that. I just read Dabirs second post as an affirmative that he wanted to execute the beginning of your plan, i.e. move Bach as well. This is why I prefer explicit instructions, if there are implicit ones around I usually get them wrong.

Updating tomorrow anyhow, bit busy today.

It's true that drink-E-E-melee would be impossible, but if I interpret the rules correctly then Wubula should be able to execute E-drink-E-melee.

How so? Moving E means she has 3MOV/2AP. Drinking the cocktail consumes 1 AP, which corresponds to half of her MOV leaving her with 1 MOV/ 1AP. Moving E again consumes the final MOV, thus using up her last AP. Your two AP always correspond to half of your MOV value. If your MOV value is odd, it corresponds to that value rounded up. In Wawa's case that means that it starts with 3 MOV / 2 AP. Using something leaves it with 1 MOV/1AP, giving it the choice of either moving or performing another action.

Dabir seems to be under the same misconception as I was that each AP is considered independently, and that performing a non-move action uses up the rest of the AP, but never anything of the next AP.

Yeah, that's it. I THOUGHT that the way I saw it was a bit inconsistent, and that's why.

EDIT: Dammit, as I upload this I realise I did a Sukuzu and misread east and west. I'll leave this here as an alternate history and do the eastern version as soon as I can (although probably not today, this was all the time I had Sad. If for some reason you're okay with this instead meep, let me know and we'll roll form here. If not, I'll make a new update tomorrow/later on.

EDIT2: New update done, managed to negotiate some time. Looks like alternate reality is a lot grimmer, so scroll past this to the real update!

Finding herself in a desperate situation, Wubula flings a spike grenade at the closest enemy. The grenade detonates right above the Warriors head, sending a rain of spike right into its head and eyes. Tough as he is, the Warrior is not able to survive such a heinous injury. It crumples to the floor, ichor and guts leaking out of its ruined husk.

The other Warrior fares much better. Sukuzu has not positioned himself well and now faces the full fury of the Bonecrusher. He manages to partially avoid the first blow, but the very end of the instruments sharp end impacts his temple, stunning him and obscuring his vision as warm brown Shofixti blood flows into his eyes from the gash it opens. Because of that, he is defenceless when the second blow falls, the blunt end of the Bonecrusher smashing his chest and causing massive trauma. While no bones crack under the impact, some splinter and his flesh is badly bruised.


Map:



OOC: Wubula scores two hits with her grenade, killing the Ilwrath. The other warrior attacks with his Bonecrusher. First attack scores two hits, Sukuzu uses up all his parries to turn that into one stun. Second attack scores 3 hits, none of which can be parried anymore. Sukuzu loses 3 HP, coming down to 2 HP total. If he wishes to withdraw, remember that he can only move three steps, and that moving away from melee gives the Warrior one free 50/5 shot of causing an additional point of damage.
