Having his rifle infront of him he slips out of the room and behind the door before taking a shot at the big bad, aiming his rifle from behind cover he'd decide to shoot at Cinder and try and take him out first so long as his shot was clear.

Scrambling to his feet, Jason glaces up at Cinder.   Grabbing at Merc #1, he spins them around and throws them at Cinder, and then attempts to make it to cover.

Spinning on his heels, Jamie sprints away from the now hostile mercenaries. "WHAT DID I SAY!? Should have listened to me, but noooo!" As he's yelling, he slides in behind a desk. "Ya just had to keep pushing it!" Having vented some anger, he peeks around the desk and points his gun towards the mercenary aiming at Jason.

"Was worth a shot, though, eh?" Glover grunts towards Jamie, before whipping the hand in his jacket out to reveal his revolver. Taking advantage of his natural dexterity, he backs up quickly towards the desk Jamie hid behind, fanning the hammer of his revolver and firing off a few shots in quick succession at Mercenary 6, before hurtling himself backwards over the desk and next to Jamie.

The Gang Goes Hot

ROUND 2

Jason
You leap to your feet, and shoulder charge the mercenary.
Jason [1] 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 [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.
Jamie [8] vs Mercenary 5 [2] 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.
Reagan [6] 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!
[7] vs Holland [Slim profile] [1] 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!
[5] 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!
[7] 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.

"You ruined my clothes!" he'd shout out quite aggravated before letting 4 shots ring out into the room thanks to the fact his gun was set to full auto, each of them moving towards the person who just shot him in the arm. Despite the pain he was feeling he decided to muscle through it.

(I go somewhere for the weekend and people die. Whelp, I shoulda saw this coming.)
Holland will jump from the ladder toward the man standing in the elevator opening and smash him with his hammer.

Groaning, Jason spits out blood and climbs to his feet.   Grabbing his rifle, he tries to make his way over to the ladder up.

"Worth a shot? Ya really this is a good time for puns?" Chuckling at his own joke Jamie yells out to his group, "Oy, try not to blow the leader's head off if ya can help it, alright? I think we'll have some questions for the gobshite!"

His grin fading away, he leans out again, this time aiming at the the third mercenary hiding behind the table.

The Gang Gets Blood on Their Hands

ROUND 3

Holland

You slide down the ladder, no longer pinned by the dangling elevator car. Gripping your hammer in one hand, you turn to face back towards the open doors and spy your target. Tensing your muscles, you leap off the ladder and across the gap, bringing your hammer down over your head.

Holland [Melee] [Foot injury] [8 + 5 - 1 = 10] vs Mercenary 1 [1!] Hit!

With a high pitched whine, the reaction wheels spin up, accelerating your swing. The mercenary can do nothing else but stand in dumbfounded confusion at the man dropping out of the darkness on him. The hammer head collides with the man's helmet with a loud, meaty CUH-RRACK and you see the helmet collapse inward as his head is destroyed by your strike. Blood and viscera splatter outwards in a perfect semicircle, painting a line across your chest and arms.

ALRIGHT HOTSHOT, NOW STICK THE LANDING CHECK
Holland [Foot injury] [5 - 1 = 4] vs The Floor [3] Just made it

You land heavily and flinch with the impact, but you stay on your feet. You are now standing in the elevator doorway.

Jeremiah
You turn around the corner again, and take aim at the mercenary hidden behind the table across the room. You steady your rifle for a moment, then let the bullets fly.

Jeremiah [Fighter] [5 + 3 = 8] vs Mercenary 4 [10!] Miss!

The mercenary surveys the room for threats, and sees you turn the corner. She swears loudly, and ducks behind the table. Your bullets eviscerate the place where her head would've been.

Jason
You get up, standing in the murky water, clothes dripping and smelling faintly of copper. Spitting out the blood, you grab the ladder and feel it vibrate as Holland leaps over your head and kills the mercenary standing at the doorway with a falling swing. You're spattered with some blood, and continue to climb.

Jamie
You lean out onto the floor, and take aim at the table across the room.
Jamie [8] vs Mercenary 3 [5] Hit!
Just before you squeeze the trigger, Jeremiah fires his rifle at the table. The fourth mercenary sees it coming ducks, saying "Shit!" loudly. Her partner behind the table says, "What?" and peeks over the edge. You take the shot. The bullet zips across the room and manages to hit between the armor pads on his shoulder and chest. The bullet penetrates all the way through, and there is a brief sputter of blood from the wound.
"Ssshit!" he yells, gripping his shoulder and falling backwards behind the table. You can hear the fourth mercenary yell, "Jackson!"

Reagan
You pop up behind the couch and take another shot, this time at Cinder.
Reagan [3] vs Cinder [Veteran] [5 + 3 = 8] Miss!
Your revolver's barrel dips, and the bullet embeds itself in the linoleum a few feet short of your target.



Mercenary 3 - "Damn it, Jackson!"
She hunkers down.

Mercenary 4 - "I know, j-just pass me the injector!"
He hunkers down.

Cinder - Fires at Holland!
Holland [Fighter] [Foot injury] [2 + 3 - 1 = 4] vs Cinder [Veteran] [5 + 3 = 8] Hit!
Cinder hefts his rifle over the desk, muttering "Gotta do everything myself." He squeezes the trigger, and the two cylinders attached to his rifle housing begin to spin and glow with a yellow energy. They start to throw of sparks and the rifle activates with an electric BWRMMMMMM as a brilliant orange ray leaps forwards and he drags it across the doorway. It burns a glowing red line into the concrete, cutting one of the rungs of the ladder as it slices through Holland's torso armor! White hot pain courses through your gut like lightning, and then is suddenly replaced with a numbness and a resounding feeling of dread. That hit did some serious damage. Holland's armor seal has been breached.

"On a roll today, eh, Jamie?" Glover laughs to the man beside him, still in cover behind the desk. Four more shots in the piece, plus my scattergun in this here desk. He thinks to himself, thumbing the hammer of his revolver back and taking careful aim one-handed, the way he prefers it, before firing off another shot, this time at the table Mercenaries 3 and 4 are currently hiding behind. The crappy thin furniture the gang keeps in this office shouldn't provide too much protection, and Glover wagers the weighty rounds in his revolver can penetrate without too much difficulty.

Lets go of his rifle with a sigh and quickly pulls out his revolver, taking aim he peaks around the corner once more and goes to take one of the five shots he had with the thing before needing to reload. The barrel pointing once more at Cinder now that the person he was shooting at was no longer visible.

Grunting, Jason hooks his arm around a rung on the ladder, hanging about level with the elevator doors.   Bringing his assault rifle up, he aims a shot at whoever is in front of him and isn't on his side.   Hopefully Cinder.   Fuck that guy.

Seeing that the remaining mercenaries are either pretty well suppressed or otherwise distracted, Jamie comes up with a plan. "I'll go get the drop on them, wish me luck."

Keeping his gun at the ready, peaks out to make sure he still has a window of opportunity. Staying low and going from cover to cover, Jamie tries to sneak around to flank the two mercenaries behind cover. If he makes it, he'll unload the last four bullets in his revolver at the two, if things go south, he'll just try to dive to the nearest cover.

The Gang Finishes What they Start

ROUND 4

Glover
You stand up from behind the desk, and level your revolver at arms length, squinting your opposite eye. You take a wild guess as to where the two mercenaries could be behind the table, and make the shot.

Glover [Blind shot] [10!] vs Mercenary 3 or 4 (Coin flip! It's 3) [No need] CRITICAL HIT

The gun jerks upwards with the powerful recoil as the slug whips across the room, punching a sizable hole in the table and striking something on the other side. You hear something heavy hit the floor back there, and then the voice of Jackson say, "Babe? Bea? No, God, Beatrice- !" His voice cracked.

Sounds like you hit something.

Jason
You climb up the rickety ladder, and as the laser cuts through the chamber you smell a mix of ozone and burnt food. You cough lightly and turn your body around, hanging off the ladder commando style as you take aim with your rifle.
Jason [Fighter] [Rifle one handed] [7 + 3 - 2 = 8] vs Cinder [Veteran] [2 + 3 = 5] Hit!
You pull on the trigger and a chunk of hot lead flies forth, striking him just under the arm. The pullet penetrates easily, and you see him flinch in pain. His aim is thrown off completely by the shot.

Jamie
You get low, and hustle your way around the outside of the room.
Jamie [Stealthy] [9 + 3 = 12] vs Mercenary 4 [Distracted] [9 - 2 = 7] Sneaky!
You peek out from behind a desk and observe your targets. What you see behind the table, however, is somewhat different than what you expected. The 4th mercenary was sitting up, with the front of his armor sporting a growing dark stain from his previous wound. He had taken his helmet off and you could see the back of his head, bowed over the 3rd mercenary. He was cradling her head in his lap. She had her helmet still on, and you could see a hole in the side of it, fresh blood still oozing out. The 4th mercenary looked like was crying, muttering something like, "You were right, you were right... We should've left... You were right..." He doesn't notice you.

Just as you read your revolver to fire, something explodes in the center of the room and a piece of shrapnel knocks your aim off. Your shot goes completely wide. The mercenary, however, doesn't take notice.

Jeremiah
You leave your rifle by your side, and instead pull out your pistol. You align the sights, and take a breath.
Jeremiah [Fighter] [8 + 3 = 11] vs Cinder [Veteran] [4 + 3 = 7] Hit!
You fire your Mateba, the loud retort of the .44 magnum signaling doom. The bullet spirals forward just as Cinder flinches from Jason's shot, causing him to jerk his rifle upwards. The bullet rips through the casing of the two cylinders on the weapon, and for a moment nothing occurs aside from Cinder gripping his now sucking chest wound. Then, the rifle's housing begins to spark and fizzle, and you see something almost resembling fear on Cinder's face. He throws the rifle into the air and ducks down as it explodes overhead! The blast rocks the room, knocking Holland back into the elevator shaft and causing Cinder to slide a few feet away. The elevator car groans ominously and the bolts holding it to the top of the shaft shift ever so slightly. Everyone else manages to keep their footing.

Cinder rolls over, facing upwards. His sunglasses had been knocked off by the force of the explosion, and now you see what he had been hiding. Where his left eye should've been was a ghastly burn scar, overlaid by several smaller surgical cuts. His right eye looked the same, save for a small trapezoid shaped piece of metal set over the socket. Four small red lenses were set into the front of it.

Cinder sits up, and coughs. A bit of blood drips out of his mouth. He looked pretty beat up.

"Well, you got me."  he says, simply. "You boys put up a pretty tough fight."

COMBAT OVER
