The Sheriff gives you a "fuck if I know" look after you've all turned, and then a couple more things happen. There's a scream from the deck of the ship, and a large splashing sound from the water. Something big and dark is emerging from the water's surface.

Jake briefly considers soiling himself, thinks better of it, then draws his pistol and quickly double-checks it.

"I think we need to kill that thing coming out of the water. How 'bout you guys?"

When the thing fully emerges from the water, a close look reveals a creature that's something like a cross between an orca and a shark, but with a hide more like an elephant's or rhino's. Its ventral fins and tail begins to take the shape of legs.

"Um, yeah," the Sheriff says. You all scramble out of the way as the creature looks to be landing on top of you. You and Dee Dee are on one side of the creature, along with Mick, and Zack is on the other side. Suddenly a bolt of what seems to be pure sunlight shoots from each of its eyes. Neither bolt hits, but it draws the full attention of all Kindred involved.

((I'll need a new set of ~ 20 3d6 rolls for Jake, and then I'm going to roll Courage for him from the list before we get to any shooting.))

OK, Jake makes his Courage roll, as do the other Kindred at the riverside.

There's a crashing sound behind you as the second van drops in free-fall from about halfway between the boat's deck and the pier. Hard to tell how good of shape it's in just from the sound of its landing.

What would Jake like to do?

Jake would like to get his ass to the dock with his goods and avoid the beastie if possible...

OK, so to be specific, you're going to hop in one of the vans and drive it towards terra firma, then?

Is that feasible? Also, can I scoop my contact into the van too?

It's certainly feasible. Also, there are two vans that need to be gotten away from the battle area. You can do some quick signaling to get Mick to toss you the keys to one van, and he'll get in the other and follow you.

Just go ahead and give as much or little description as you want for Jake's retreat from the riverside. When I know where he ends up, I'll know what I can put in my next post in this thread.

Jake catches Mick's eye and points to the remaining vans, as he runs towards one, holding his hand out to catch the keys.

"C'mon!", he calls, pulling his escort along into the van as he catches the hastily tossed keys out of the air and scrambles into the driver's seat. He starts up the van, guns the engine and makes for the dock and, hopefully, cover.

"Zack! These things have turrets and machine guns! See if we're loaded and get ready!"

Zack doesn't come to the van immediately, as he and Dee Dee seem to be trying to coordinate to engage the beastie in melee. Jake can if he wishes drive the van and check the machine gun himself (it's loaded), and fire it off after driving to a more remote position.
