Default Season 2, Episode 3: The Door To The Metal Room Has Opened

Meat is back on the menu.

One thing is certain. Two apex predators in the same hunting ground are sure to come into conflict.

*****
The scout ran back to his hunting party, breathless. "They're coming out. All is in readiness?!"

Slyde looks after Kaue, and says to AJ "Looks like we're losing one."


"Shall we follow, or search other areas of the ship? That one doctor sounded terrified, but he might be able to give us more information."

Out of the airlock door pour hundreds of squirrels the size of raccoons. Each of them is wearing a hood and mask, has a sword slung over his back, and a submachine gun slung across their front. They climb up and across the walls, and dozens kneel in a convex semi-circle just outside the door, their submachine guns leveled at you all.

One of them yells in a tiny cute voice, "All right! Hands in the air, assholes!"

"Yeah. That's not gonna happen." Slyde says. "Those peashooters ain't gonna penetrate our armor. How about we talk like civilized people, or the lot of us put out enough lead from our autoshots to turn the lot of you into ground round?" Slyde says.

(and yeah, I doubt raccoon size smg's are gonna penetrate sp 10 armor.)

Slyde is ready to rock and roll if they make a move. Starting with the one that spoke up.

OOC: Roll your intimidate. Roll your awareness.

Intimidate: 8(roll) +5 (cool) for 13
Note for any bonuses: He really doesn't think a 6lb critter can successfully fire a round to penetrate. Absolutely no fear whatsoever. He really will be just as happy to party as talk.

Awareness: 8(roll)+6 (skill) + 7(combat sense) +8 (Int) for 29

The lead squirrel's brow furrows, and he aims in his Arasaka Minami Submachine on you. Several of his cohort notice his actions and follow his lead.

You now have a large number of high quality assault submachine guns pointed at your chest.

"Hands. In. The. Air. Fucktard. We are giving you an opportunity to talk rather than just killing you all. There are other tribes that aren't nearly so friendly, and you're gonna need to get through them if you want to get to the other side of the jungle."

OOC: As I understand from the last of episode 2, I was in the airlock doorway looking out into the jungle area. Had I seen a swarm of armed squirrel-coons dashing toward us, I would certainly have dropped grenades on them. However, to move the story forward, let's assume that I stood there in bewilderment as they swarmed through the doorway around me.

Am I surrounded by squirrel-coons at this point?

Assuming "Yes" then while they are engaging Slyde, Kaue will use his stealth skill to palm a grenade and pull the pin, he will not use it, but have it ready for "negotiations." I'm not interested in blowing up squirrels but it might make the dialogue more interesting.

*******************

Kaue watched as the large squirrels poured into the room. This was not the glorious death he had hoped to find. Death by squirrels would not be the stuff of legend. It would not inspire his people to fight. But if he was to die by squirrels, at least it should be dramatic. While the squirrels were talking to Slyde and aiming their weapons at him, Kaue quietly slipped a grenade from his LBE and with his thumb, pulled the pin. He kept a grip on it and let Slyde do the talking.

Stealth: roll 9 + stealth 6 + (cool 8 or reflex 7) = 23 or 22 (not sure if I should use reflex or cool under fire here)

OOC: Good roll. Good writing. Heh. "Death by squirrels."
