The Gang Goes Hot
You leap to your feet, and shoulder charge the mercenary.
vs Mercenary 1 [No need] CRITICAL FAILURE
He sees you coming from a mile away, and sidesteps you as he sweeps your legs out from underneath you with his rifle. You tumble down into the water, and land on top of the other mercenary you knocked in there earlier. You taste blood.Jeremiah
You step back and get behind the doorframe, and ready your shot.
Jeremiah [Fighter] [7+3 = 10]
vs Cinder [Veteran] [9+3 = 12] Grazing shot
As you raise your rifle, however, Cinder's head immediately turns towards you. You swear you see his left eye glow red for a second. He leaps backwards, rolling behind a table as your shot grazes his shoulder. It tears the armor, but you don't see him flinch.Jamie and Glover
You two fire quips between eachother as Jamie jumps behind a thick wooden desk, sliding to a stop on the linoleum. Glover follows suit, moving backwards as he fires off a volley of shots from his revolver.
Glover [Reflex] [9 + 2 = 11]
vs Mercenary 6  Hit!
The revolver's thick slugs find their mark, slamming into the mercenary's side! Two of the slugs slam into his torso, bruising through the body armor.
The third goes wide, and tears through the flesh of his neck. Dark, crimson blood sprays in a glistening arc through the office.
He lets out a gurgled scream
, panicked, as he tries to hold back the torrential flow
with his hands.
Glover lands behind the desk neatly. Jamie's turn.
Jamie takes his shot at the mercenary by the elevator, bracing his firing arm on the table.
vs Mercenary 5  Hit!
He takes in a breath, one eye closed. Aiming carefully, he squeezes the trigger of the pistol. With a loud, hard retort, the bullet is let loose from the barrel and screams across the office. It burrows through the side of her helmet, burying itself deep inside her cranium. There's no exit wound, and only a small trickle of scarlet fluid
exits the half inch hole. The barrel of her rifle dips, and for a moment she stands completely still. Peaceful, almost. Then gravity catches up with her and her body crumples to the ground, lifeless and empty.
((ApatheticExcuse won't be able to post for a little while so I'll be taking over his character for the time being.))Reagan
You roll over the back of the couch you had been lounging in, and peek over the top. You take a shot at the mercenaries hiding behind the table on the eastern side of the room.
vs Mercenary 3 [Hunkered down] [8 + 3 = 11] Miss!
You can't quite get a bead on their position and the .44 magnum bullet blasts a hole in the table, harmless to your assailants.
Mercenary 1 - Fires at Holland!
vs Holland [Slim profile]  CRITICAL FAILURE
The mercenary squeezes the trigger of his rifle, and the laser shot zooms forwards. A red beam of light illuminates the dark shaft for a moment, and Holland has nowhere to go. The shot strikes him in the foot, and he feels the heat burn the sole of his foot. That hurt.
Mercenary 3 - Fires at Reagan!
vs Reagan [Low cover] [7 + 1 = 8] Miss!
His shot goes wide, flying over the couch and making a dark burn mark on the wall.
Mercenary 4 - Fires at Jeremiah!
vs Jeremiah [High cover] [2 + 2 = 4] Hit!
Her shot manages to grab Jeremiah in the arm! The sizzling ray sears your upper arm, leaving a gnarly but cauterized wound. The pain, however, is very much there.
Mercenary 6 - Suffers.
He writhes and squirms
on the ground, sputtering and gurgling in a pool of his own blood
. He chokes out one last agonizing groan and raises his hand towards the sky. His arm goes limp shortly after, and he dies.
