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.

Subject: I hate writing combat.....

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.


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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Seems like Five Seconds and Subway are the two leaders so far. I would have thought the WWII would have been more popular. Just shows you never know.

Although hearing that Grugg won't be joining is a bummer. I thought I might actually get to DM you for once. Zombies? Would you take mutant zombies for 1000 Alex?

Utan, you are correct, Subway is based on a Gamma World module I ran back in the 80's. Didn't get to play GW much as my friends were die-hard D&D fans.

Subject: Lost and profound

I may have not done justice to that concpet in my write up. The problem is that it is a "strangers in a strange land" concept, so to explain what is going on, I thought would ruin the appeal.

However, I think I need to explain further to garnish interst. The characters are on an Ark traveling thorugh space. This ship is huge with thousands of "biodome" all containing individual cultures from earth. The ship has been travelling for hundreds of years, on its way to a star system where scientists believed a habitable planet would be.

But something went wrong. Along the way, something happened. The bridge is destroyed, the crew is dead, communication between domes is gone, and the ship is way off course. In fact, it is heading directly towards a star.

The PCs find this out early in their exploration of the ship. The makers of the ark built in a computer system designed to be used by anyone, through a holographic interface. They also find out there is an auxilery bridge where the course can be corrected. But they do not know how to do that. They need to find help somewhere on the ark, and find the other bridge.

Does that help?

Subject: Over at last...or is it?

The exhilaration of slaying two foes in such style filled Maximus with confidence. He threw himself at the mantis leader with gusto and rage. The insect mage moved its staff to block the sweeping attack, but the blade cut through the staff and continued onwards to cut thorough the shell and body of the creature. If it could have looked surprised, it would have as it died a swift death.

Dapple attacked at the limbs of the Ankheg but found herself dodging more than hitting the creature. Then she was forced to move in towards the beast to avoid a blow and found an opening. The shell beneath was softer, more pliable and Dapple attacked with one, two and a third kick that seemed to cause great pain. With its master gone and the pain intense, the Ankheg dove back into its hole again to dig away from pest that hurt it so.

Char brings bow to aim and fires at the flying creatures. He has the second arrow in the air before the first hits target. The Thri-kreen is hit as it attempts to leap from mount to the blackness around Alloryn. Unable to use its dodging abilities, the two arrows pierce its carapace and it loses its balance, tumbling and falling until it crashes to the ground – a gooey icky mess.

Valentine casts his dispel magic on the globe. Even before he finishes his spell, he feels a power to it that is almost perfection. He watches as the darkness is ripped apart like cloth. Alloryn hangs there in the sky, green fire burning where her eyes should be and green energy glowing around her hand.

Inside, Alloryn had been fighting for what seemed like so long. This entity that called herself the green goddess was purging her from her own mind and Alloryn was starting to lose. It needed light to gain full power and the battle was distracting, but she was losing her will to fight.

Then suddenly, Alloryn felt a wave pass through her like a cooling breeze. The green goddess was torn out of her body and mind. She saw clearly again, and had control over her body

And she was 100 feet above the ground. Training took over as she began to plunge and she cast the fastest spell in her memory – featherfall.

Valentine saw the green fire extinguish and the young lady seemingly come to herself again. Alloryn feel for a few seconds but then she started to float to the earth, gently towards her brother’s waiting arms.

The last Mantis Warrior pulled up its mount and flew high, turning around to flee from the now mismatched battle.

Alloryn landed near Arien. The two looked at each other for a moment but then Alloryn collapsed, unconscious.

OOC: You may shoot at the departing Thri-kreen if you’d like. Bob – you had only a 5% chance of dispelling the presence from Alloryn and you got it. – That would be a mage’s Natural 20.

The Main Street 1:25-1:27 pm

“Where were they going in such a hurry?” Cora said to her husband, “No respect for people on the road. This is why I keep saying we need an Alliance presence here in town. To keep the peace and maintain some law and order.”

“Yes dear.” John replied

“…Tearing down the street like hooligans.” Cora continued.

“Yes dear. Was that gun fire dear?” John asked.

“Oh my lord!” Cora raised her hand to her mouth.


“What was that dear?” John asked while instinctively taking cover at the bottom of the stage.

“It was outside our bank! Hunt! Turn around! Take us back fast!”

Hunt responded to Cora’s command as swiftly as he could. It was all of his driving skill to keep the stage from falling over when that mule flew by. A three point turn in a hurry was a bit much for his nerves now.

“Ummm. What are we going to do when we get there Dear?”

Cora gave a martyr’s sigh, “Try to be a man for once John. You know … surprise me.”

“Hey!” Hunt called out, “There goes JW! He’ll get the job done! Now hold on while I back this up…oops.”

The Bank, 1:27 pm

Ethan shoved Brigit towards the doorway. She stumbled as she did and fell to the ground, tripping over the weapons of Sam that were shoved across the floor. She falls without grace and send the pieces scattering. If that wasn’t bad enough, her blouse chose that moment to lose their lacing, opening her voluptuousness to the men to see. The two brother holler wildly but Ethan Silence them with a glare, “Get that rifle and grenades, we gonna need them...” And then to Brigit, “Fix yourself Woman.”

As Fenris pulls up the hover mule and lays on the horn/brakes, a man take a single step out and pushes Miss Brigit out before him while holding her hair in one hand and a long nose python in the other, the muzzle on the back of the pretty woman’s head. He sees the Hover mule and yanks his hostage back to the doorway.

“Stop the Mule! Get out, and leave your guns inside, or she dies!” Ethan yells out at you from the doorway. He is completely covered by the doorway and Brigit except for part of his head and face behind her. It is enough for Asher and Wyatt though to recognize the family resemblance.

Inside the Bank 1:27 pm

On the floor of the bank, Sam forces his eyes to open. Unconsciousness grabbed him for a moment but he couldn’t let Miss Brigit be taken away by these men. If it was that last thing he did, he would….

Sam blinked his eyes in disbelief. His Avenger was there, not a foot away from his body, like a long lost puppy who found its way home. He looks across the room with unfocused eyes. Ethan was at the doorway with Brigit, back to Sam. The two brothers were scoping up his equipment and stuffing the grenades into pockets, not paying attention to what they figured was a dead man.

The Landing Pad, 1:26-1:27

As the explosion settles, people who were once milling around are no longer without propose. Those with horses take off at full gallop and many of the men and woman take off towards town at a full run.

“I don’t believe anyone has more than a bruise or a few scratches, but perhaps….Merciful Buddha!” Willow stopped, wide eyed as she saw a bright flash and the ground shook beneath her feet.

The doctor looked up at the explosion and quickly repacked his bag, “Gentlemen, you’ll excuse me but that looks a might more serious than your injuries.” He moved to his horse and stuffed the kit back into the saddle bag. As he began to ride away, he hesitated and offers a hand down to Willow, “I might need some help?” he asks, “if you don’t mind being with an old fellow like me.”
