Asher And Boats.......

We have established that Ash reads about weapons and such.
He would not be detail knowledgeable on Corvettes but very likely read something about them because of the weapons used. He likes BIG toys. So he may not be able to recite everything, he'd know a bit about gun turrets locations and missile launch ports.

The shuttle is small enough to be hard to hit if coming in at blind area, but the weapons are big enough to dust it.

It would make a cool "Movie Moment" to have them drop the EMs and actually do some damage, but they have to be able to reach the Corvette to buzz it. Too bad it isn't in space where they might just look like debris from the hauler.

So got to work on a different "Big D*** Hero" way the help.

Hmmmm.... no rebreathers in the helmet.

Plan D...........

Although I had a really cool movie moment going on in my head it may really be time for Plan D! "Run Away!"

With the nerve gas rolling out Wyatt and Haverlock should disengage, even with the big guy on them.

The shuttle is hit, losing fuel and getting a weapons lock they need to get away from the gas too.

Wolf needs to seal off the ship's air locks.

I see Asher sending a comm about the cloud of gas so all know it's coming.

I may still to write a "Dream" sequence on how Asher and Trish take out the Corvette, lol.

Ahhhh.........

I was interpreting that she did the gas to get the ground troops even if it got us too. Thus leaving time for the Col. to arrive and save the day. But now I see it was her to not let the badies use it on us.

Well without the need to flee that puts the dream back on the table.

I can her Trish now. "It'll be like chasing Womp rats back in beggar's canyon."

Because Shuttles are so small they're harder to hit ..right?

slightly confused

Tann - Can you give me an idea of where you'd like Wolf to be beyond "hopefully out of sight". You got people on the roof so they can access through the shuttle bay doors the easiest, or use the upper EVA entrance by the kitchen. So .. Catwalk egress to the shuttles, maybe a few stairs down so if they blow the doors you won't be in the way? See picture below
Ok I had Hack and Slash on both sides of the upper ledge behind as best of a barracade as we could create for each of them.
Until the alert of Mercs on the roof I would have been on the lower center ledge. Now I am at whichever of the farthest flashbangs that did not go off to give me a way to fight and retreat.

Also don't forget the two suits of armor set up to look as if another pair of defenders. They should due to them being low on the cargo bay the first 'enemy' the mercs should see as the enter the hold.

Ooooh! Interesting.

I hadn't figured on hand-to-hand combat in this particular fight. Wyatt ain't too shabby at it, but something tells me this brute is a bit more prepared to engage in Fight Club.

I'll come up with a post really soon. Good beginning, Roger. Let's try and survive, everyone.

interior

Albert, when dealing with combat, I like to players to give me as specific as possible to position so I am asking you where is Wolf in the ship specifically. Otherwise I have to assume and I dislike doing so.

Wolf slowly made his way towards the upper EVA hatch placing flash bangs along his way. The first of the six he placed at the doorway between the catwalk platform and the door into the common area and Infirmary. The second and third he placed at the top of the stairs leading from the common area to dining area and the hallway to the engine room. The last three flash bangs he set up as to further delay pursuit giving him and the two body guards hopefully enough time to escape out of the top EVA hatch. With all six flash bangs positioned he only set the third to fire. The other five he would wire to blow as they passed.
The first three you are very specific about but the last three you are not. The last three flash bangs he set up as to further delay pursuit giving him and the two body guards hopefully enough time to escape out of the top EVA hatch does not tell me where they are set.

The FB grenades blew due to shockwave - Specifically they were the ones at the doorway between the catwalk platform and the door into the common area and Infirmary, the top of the stairs leading from the common area to dining area and the hallway to the engine room.

Now you posted Now I am at whichever of the farthest flashbangs that did not go off to give me a way to fight and retreat.
Farthest from what? Where are they?

Here is the route as I see it on the map.

 photo Serenity_Screen_01route.jpg
I suggested the top of the stairs before the gangway to the two shuttles because then you could deal with both doors being open without cutting of the two bodyguards and john who is in the infirmary below. Now if you are on the catwalk heading towards the stairs to the upper EVA, then if the Merc team comes through the doors for the shuttle, you'll be effectively cut off from everyone else.

So this is why I ask for clarification.

Ok shit

Looking at your map compared to the one in the character section I see I totally misunderstood the interior of the ship and the distances between the EVA hatch and cargo bay.
At this point it looks like the EVA hatch is rt up the stairs from we are in the cargo bay?

Roger I would have set the flash-bangs in the best way to cover our retreat from the cargo bay to the EVA hatch as it looked on the other map. With the EVA actually that close I have no clue. I would have in all honesty not taken as many if I had seen this map first.

Okay

Mistakes happen, especially with my maps. So we have three FB that you are now holding in reserve?

Now, to make things worse, the exit plan did not consider men on the roof so they may come in the EVA hatch as well. Depends on how many are coming and how many Asher can hit before the missile destroys shuttle#2.

So you may need to reconsider your options. There more EVA doors that do not lead to roof. There is one in the corridor between cockpit and the Galley, there is one in the corridor between the galley and engineering and there is one in the corridor near the infirmary. I have included a pic below but it is not very big.
