I am going away camping this weekend with my daughter. So I will not be posting to the game until next week, probably Monday or Tuesday.

I will be looking to wrap this up in the next few posts. If you have any loose ends to tie up, now is the time.

Subject: better days


In case any of you were thinking of picking up Serenity Better Days" the comic series - don't bother unless you are a die-hard fan who has to have everything Serenity.

The story is weak, the plot is thin and there are so many loose ends that you could weave a rug with them. I was very disappointed, especially because the first part was very well done, but #2 & 3 were horrible.

There is another series coming that is suppose to be about Shepherd Book. Hopefully that one redeems itself.

I have said before, I don't worry about what goes on in a fantasy based game. Willow doesn't look at all like my wife (Cathy is far prettier ans sexier) and Sam isn't Eol. So don't feel dirty and I am not plotting your demise.

I am a strong porponent of a good fantasy life.

I do my best Blammm. I never feel that I get combat right.Just really hard to give the impression of everything happenin gat once.

BTW-one day I will roll for Asher and he will miss...badly.You are running a luck streak that is not been rivalled by many of my players.

Eol - sure you can post. You can post about shooting Elway, you can post about looking death in the face down the end of a shotgun and you can post a impression of Asher's handiwork on the man rescued.

Of course, you can continue the unconsciousness dream as far as you want, as long as you remember the site is PG.

In your next posts, you will only have about five minutes before you will hear the telltale sound of a ship breaking atmo and see an Alliance Patrol Ship heading directly towards town. So keep posts within that five minutes.

The Bank, 1:28-1:30 pm

“Stop the mule! Get out, and leave your guns inside, or she dies!”

“Kid, the entourage is yours.”

"Hey Sam! Come on out and tell your bouncer we're all friends."


Moments hung like hours between the groups of men. Ethan sorely wished that his brother was there at that moment. His brother wasn’t afraid of anything and had been in lots of scraps like this and lived to tell of it. Ethan wondered if he’d ever see his brother again.

Ethan whispered hoarsely out of the side of his mouth, “Pull all the pins and throw out every grenade you got. We be going out the back.”

The brothers snickered and smiled at each other. Then there was a PAFFT noise, followed by another and another. Jake watched Elway suddenly jerk to the side and slump against the chair near him. Blood came out of his mouth and from wounds on both sides. “Jake?” he spat, “Don’t tell momma…”

Rage boiled inside Jake and he forgot the grenades, the bank vault and Ethan. He turned his hog-leg directly at the man who shot his brother and made to eliminate his face from the world.

Sam’s vision was blurred but he saw the brother collapse and was pretty sure he got him in the side at least once. But he couldn’t move himself enough to dodge or get cover. He could only look as death came for him at the end of a shotgun.

Outside, Asher heard the three gun reports and knew that sound anywhere. That was Sam’s gun, and he saw one of the two men in the bank drop. The other made a move to shoot, but Asher didn’t even stop to think about aiming. The first shot took the shotgun out of his hands before Jake could fire. The next bit deeply into the bandit’s right arm and forced him to spin to face his attacker, as if Asher wanted him to see who was gonna kill him. The next three shots all clustered in Jake’s chest, and sent him down in a heap next to his brother’s body.

Sam stays conscious long enough to see the man go down, then he drifts into unconsciousness with the visions of Willow taking off his clothes after all this is done, and then taking off all of hers…

Ethan turned his head on reflex when he heard the soft shots of the silenced weapon. “Ta Ma Duh” he muttered.

Brigit just needed that moment’s distraction. She twists the small hairpin in her hand and thrusts it deep into the inner thigh of Ethan’s leg. He screamed and lets go of her in pain. Brigit wasted no time and throws herself down on the ground, trusting to fate that the men in the hover mule would take down her assailant.

Wyatt made his move and fired a single shot, hoping to take this Ludlow the same way he took his brother. Unfortunately, the man moved at the last second and the bullet that would have gone through his skull, only hit the side of his head, taking off a large portion of the left ear. Not waiting for Ethan to recover, Wyatt fired again, this time taking the big man in the belly. The next shot seemed to hit but the man didn’t drop.

Ludlow screamed in rage and raised his cannon to fire at Wyatt, as if the last thing he would do with his life is kill this stranger who appeared out of nowhere and ruined his day. Between the pain in his thigh, shoulder, ear and this strange wooziness that was overtaking him, he could barely focus. He forced himself to run towards Wyatt. Firing wildly, a shot managed to come close to Wyatt’s head, enough to take off his hat but not change his icy demeanour. Asher was busy killing the other bandit, and Wyatt was amazed this man could still move, let alone fire a weapon.

Brappppppppppt

There was a shot burst of gunfire and Ethan went down in the mud on his back. Wolf stood, Uzi in hand, still pointing at the bank robber’s body as if he expected him to get up and attack further.

As the dust settles, a man comes riding at full speed to where you are parked. Wyatt recognizes him as the man who was giving the speech outside the other, whereas Wolf knows JW by sight. Asher has no idea who this old guy is, but he looks like a man in charge and he isn’t pointing the shotgun at any of them. He comes to a stop a short distance away and takes in the scene. He looks to Wyatt, with a look that asks if there is any more trouble or is everything clear now. He slides off his horse an heads directly to Brigit.

Behind him, comes a stage hover mule that also stops. A short, pudgy, and balding man gets out and looks around in pure terror. He starts to raise his hands in reflex to the number of weapons out. On the other side of the stage, a tall woman gets out, at least 5’ 10” tall; this brown hair beauty is dressed in a deep red silk dress, tailored to fit her hourglass shape and voluptuous body. The old man at the driving seat of the mule stays put and just looks around.

“My bank!” the bald man cries out but makes no move. The woman looks around the scene of death with mild distaste.

Down the road, you can see what looks like the entire town coming your way, some on horses, some on mule, and mostly on foot. Ahead of the pack, an older gentleman comes riding his horse hard, with Willow held tightly, but respectfully in his arms. Willow looks to be carrying her medical kit.

OOC:
Albert Morgan: The bank teller Stun 10 Wounds 9 (10/10) – Electrical burns, heart beat erratic, barely breathing, needs attention now.
Sam: Stun: 14 Wounds: 8 (14/14) (badly bruised, broken ribs, internal injuries, possible internal bleeding, will need medical attention fast. Ballistic vest is toast, many bullets lodged in vest)
Wolf: Stun: 4 Wounds: 7 (18/18 ) (Bad through and through. Bleeding and needs attention but not as bad as Sam)
Wyatt: The hat is badly wounded, needs a tailor STAT!
Asher: Did anyone see me do that? Huh? Huh?
Ethan: Death’s Door – you could save him but at the cost of Sam slipping into a coma and the teller dying. You can get a few last words in before he dies.
Jake –So dead
Elway – Dead
Jones – Ground beef dead
Grant – His body got to heaven before his soul
Brigit – A few scrapes and cuts, but not so worse for wear.

Subject: get this wagon train a moving


I was hoping to finish off this gunfight today, then have you all arrested for robbing the bank, so Willow can plan the jail break (joking! really! Put down that knife).

If Blammm can not post today, then I will assume he is following Captain's orders and aiming for the brothers.


re uzi - In the game, all submachine gums have a single shot function unless otherwise stated. I don't know about RL, but when I got to shoot an Uzi back when I was a teenager, it was modified to single shot only (canadian gun laws and we are taking more than 20 years ago)

Subject: uzi


Tann - You do carry a pistol, a python 6 inch actually so you can use that instead of the uzi. The uzialso can be fired as single shot or 3 round burst instead of autofire. Your choice really, as your assessment of skills are correct, You are brawler, not a gunfighter by preference.

I will post as soon as I can, after Blamm does.

Subject: well within


The basic short (no step penalties) range of a pistol is one hundred feet. Building to building with road between is less than 50 feet. I would say that the mule sits at 30 feet away from the bank doors.

If it helps, Sam has the first move by initistive. So before the Kid can make a decision, someone would open up on the other two.

Now, would Asher, the gun nut, recognize the report of an Avenger and know it is Sam? The dice love you Blammm (luck must be a lady) and say yes, you would know Sam's Avenger anywhere.

Subject: lines of sight


Just for the record, the two other bandits in the bank are moving around but visible trough the windows. The glass is gone and the bars are blown open so there is little to block your line of sight, however it won't be an easy shot (+2 cover bonus).

Somehow I knew that Wyatt wouldn't hand over the mule. I hope I don't botch ...

Subject: move


Blammm - Asher can easily drop the Grizzly and go for the pistols. You have Fightin type as an asset so you can make a extra non attack move per round.

It would be funny if you did give up the mule, as they don't know about the brakes ...
