Showdown at High Noon (Day 1, Round 1)

The night and morning pass with the group busy with their assorted preparations. The fortifications look sound, the troops are confident. Everyone is in place, and prepped as best they can be. Moments before the sun reaches its apex, a red-winged blackbird comes zooming out of the trees, crying out; Hassun lets Artemeisia know that the bandits are almost there, giving her time to give the ready order. The Legionnaires stand firm; the dwarves defiant, and they all level their weapons at the tree-lines, hunkering down behind the hastily, but well-constructed barricades.

The first of the hoverbikes come screaming out of the trees moments later followed only slightly by the robot horse riders; meanwhile, a handful of robot armor suits take up position on far ridgelines to pummel the defenses with artillery.

OOC Comments
Okay, so, here's the deal:

Currently, there are 240 Bandits, and 210 Defenders. So the attackers get 10 Tokens (24 bandits each), and the defenders get 9 (21 defenders each).

In a Mass Battle, it's all on the leader's head, ultimately. So Artemeisia should roll Knowledge: Battle LAST, after all modifications are calculated from other people. This is NOT an opposed roll--you and the bandit leadership will roll separately. Every success or raise she gets removes one Bandit token; every success or raise the enemy gets will cost you all one defender token.

Arte has some 'fixed' bonuses for each round, depending on where the fighting takes place and what round it is. Currently, she gets +1 Artillery from SnackHappy and some other Robot Armor and rocket launcher-wielding Legionnaires she's got available to her, and the early warning provided by Hassun's animal friends gets an additional +1: Net bonus +2.

The Bandits get +1 Artillery, +1 Light Air Support, -1 Terrain (SnackHappy's defenses), and +1 for superior numbers, for a final bonus of +2 (but they don't have a swarm of PCs providing assistance).

Assistance:

As with the preparation, the rolls you make are an abstraction of your character's activity over 4 hours of semi-constant battle. It's the key "thing you do" during that time.

Everyone who is participating in the battle (other than Arte) should make ONE Skill roll representing that thing you want to do. It's understood that you're all doing a lot of things, but this represents your primary contribution to the fight. As you are outnumbered, you suffer a -1 penalty to the roll; Seasoned characters get a +1, for a flat roll instead.

Some examples:
Obviously, engaging in combat with hapless extras and slaughtering them in droves is a Fighting, Shooting or Throwing roll. Normally, Ammunition is tracked on Shooting rolls, but with the abundance of e-clips available, I'm going to apply handwavium to any use of weapons that use E-clips. Railguns and missiles should track ammo, OTOH. Railguns roll 3d6; missiles, grenades and rockets roll 1d6 to determine the number of shots burned during the fight.
Zakkael gets +1 if using Faith during this time.
Laying down arcane might uses the appropriate Arcane Skill. It also requires you to roll 2d6 to determine Power Points spent.
Exceptions, rulings and special modifiers:
[*] As Hassun is a Burster with tons of free firepower, if he throws down with Psionics, it costs him only 1d6 ISP. Anyone who can tap the Ley Line for PPE doesn't have to roll for PPE expenditure at all, as you refresh pretty much non-stop during the fight.
[*] Any Major Psionic can add 2 to their ISP roll to add 2 to their Psionics roll, or +4/+4.
[*] SnackHappy should pick which weapon systems he prefers to focus on (note that his wide arsenal also has been factored in as the fixed "Artillery Bonus" Arte gets for the round). If he takes any wounds during the combat (see the table near the end), those get applied to the GunWolf, and will also require location hits.
  • Light Laser: Shooting, +1 for Link, -2 Matter of Size cancelled by the targeting systems, no ammo concerns
  • Rail Guns (any): Shooting, -2 Matter of Size cancelled by the targeting systems, burn 2d6 rounds for each railgun used
  • Ion Cannon: Shooting, No MoS penalty due to area of effect attack, no ammo concerns
  • Mini-Missile Launchers: No MoS penalty due to area of effect attack, burn 1d6 ammo per launcher used
  • Flamethrower: Shooting, No MoS penalty due to area of effect attack, burn 2d6 ammo
  • Close Combat Array: Piloting, -2 MoS penalty, no targeting bonus, no ammo concerns
[*]If Roath wants to go invisible and cut up lone stragglers behind the lines, that's Stealth, with a +2 for the Cloak (which, again, he can pretty much use for free as an LLW on a Ley Line). (Remember to apply the -1 penalty for this round, though.)
[*] Echo's "confusion to the enemy" approach would be a Smarts roll at +2 for having the ability to Shapeshift. (Essentially, this is a Smarts trick.) (Ditto on the round penalty.)
[*] Zakkael and Echo also have an additional option. Instead of going on the offense (and boosting Artemeisia's roll in the usual fashion), they can choose to go defensive (Echo by disrupting attack coordination, Zakkael by spamming Barrier and Healing during the fight). If they take this approach, their table results (below) are applied as a negative to the attackers' roll (which could result in fewer tokens being lost on your side).

Quote:
Character Battle Results
• Failure: The hero is stopped by overwhelming numbers,
an unfortunate tactical development, or bad fortune. He
suffers 4d6 damage.
• Success: The hero fights well and adds +1 to his side’s
Battle Roll, though he suffers 3d6 damage.
• Raise: The hero wreaks havoc, slaying enemy leaders
and destroying important assets. He suffers 2d6 damage,
but adds +2 to his side’s Battle Roll.
• Two Raises: The warrior covers himself in glory! Scores
of foes fall before him and his success inspires his allies
to fight like demons. His efforts add +2 to his side’s Battle
Roll and he emerges from the fight unscathed.


Short summary:

Everyone but Artemeisia:

Post your approach to the fight. (Zakk and Echo can choose to go 'defensive' to try and spare the miners, instead of inflicting more damage on the enemy.)
Roll appropriate skill, and if appropriate, PPE/Ammo spent.
Read table, post results (Just copy/paste the one that applies to your roll).
I will roll any damage taken.
Add some flavor text to represent that roll.

Once all that is done, Artemeisia rolls Knowledge: Battle, based on the final bonus. I do the same for the Bandits. Tokens are removed, and Arte and the Bandits roll Spirit - [Tokens lost] as a Morale roll (note: first round, you guys have a +4 bonus to morale). If either side fails morale, the fight's over as they flee in terror.

If neither side is routed, and both sides still have Tokens left, then the fight continues to the Evening round; if you've lost too many people, it may move to Zone 2 (the buildings), as the defenders are pushed back; if you have enough people, AND inflicted significant casualties, we might even move to Zone 0 (beyond the barricades).

Persuasion 14, success and two raises for -2 to Opponents Battle roll from infiltration

    Extra Effort on first round for double raise: 1d6+11 = 14 (3)
Persuasion Wild Die 1d6+6 = 8 (2)

Putting his armor on, grabbing his laser pistol and stealing a bike Hampton is glad to be out of that place. He was not sure he would be able to escape, those Tomorrow Legion people claim to be noble, but after they raped his mind and through him in there with that other prisoner he did not think he would ever be the same. He remembered the guy was chatting, which can be a good thing, but he needed how to get back to his FAC unit if any lived. Unfortunately it turned out his unit was destroyed from those Legion fools who captured him. The best thing to do would be find another unit and get some payback for shooting him in the leg.
Approaching the company he was surprised it took close to half an hour before he was taken to the Lieutenant in charge.
Being introduced to Breaker the Lieutenant of the company Hammond found himself unfairly on the grill. “So, you claim you where with one of the units that got wiped? How did you get away?” Still a little untrusting the Lieutenant looks around “Any of you recognise this guy?”
Private Marcone normally liked to keep quiet, but he figured this time he would speak up. He remembered he liked Hammond the last time they worked together. “I know that guy, that’s Hammond, I worked with him before, he did scouting work for the 232nd when I was in Old New Mexico. He was okay.”
Hearing someone actually knew the guy the Lieutenant was a little more reasonable to hear the story. “Well what are you waiting for. Tell us what happened to the rest of the scouts.”
Hammanded was relieved someone actually recognised him. No-one wants to get shot when all they wanted was a little revenge. “Looking around nervously at all the men with guns pointed at him Hammond decided to try and shoot straight before he was shot down. “Those dogs killed my unit took me, they started to do some kind of mind rape n me. I could feel them in my head forcing me to answer questions, when one of them started yelling at the guy that it wasn’t right. Next thing I know these two guys are arguing back and forth and completely forgot me.
“Well I know when to get out, so I took off running jumped on Davy’s skimmer and headed out.” Looking a bit embarrassed he adds. “I thought I was clear, but as soon as I started to run they started shooting, they damaged by bike there and got me in the leg.” he indicates the still bloody hole in the armor of his leg. “Once I was clear I figured I wanted to get a little revenge. You don’t know what it was like to have one of those guys poking around in your head. It was terrible, and I am gonna make them pay. I can tell you some of what I saw inside.” Hammond is looking forward to shooting some of those guys again and if he sees that weird girl without the eyes again he will shoot her until she quits twitching, reload and shoot her again. Mumbling some of his resentment gets out. “That bitch is gonna pay.”
Seeing the resentment in his face Breaker knows this guy obviously cannot be trusted with any key missions, but he will work out just fine as a gun on the field. “I will give you a chance at some vengeance. Now go eat and get ready.”
After filling his stomach Hammond got back to his original mission. Moving through the camp he found the other two Lieutenants for the Cavalry and studying them and getting to know them as well as he could.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This battle was going all wrong. Breaker was getting pissed, every time he turned around another one of his units was going the wrong direction, firing on the wrong target or worst of all he found one unit actually launching missiles path the walls. He told them to clear the path and take out the unoccupied outer building first. He was beginning to think there was something wrong with his men. Perhaps that girl Private Hammond spoke of was messing with his soldiers minds. Turning around he saw men again heading out directly for the fortifications. “What the hell are you doing soldier?”
“Just doing what you said boss, you told us to concentrate fire on that weak spot where the west wall brokedown.” The corporal looked a little nervous and very confused.
His temper was getting the better of him as Breaker roared. “Now what the hell would I want to shoot at a damn hle in a wall for! Get your men and head to the east wall, look at how many secured they are there, we need to break them now!” What the hell was going on here?
Turning to look around and survey how the battle was going the Lieutenant was not pleased to see the Lieutenant staring back at him with a Laser pistol in hand and looking very displeased. “I knew something was going on here. Half the time I would give an order and my men would go the other way 2 minutes later. Don’t suppose you want to tell me anything useful?” Without waiting for a reply the Lieutenant shot Lieutenant Breaker.
The hole in his chest was awfully inconvenient for Lieutenant Breaker as he looked up at Lieutenant Breaker. “Sorry, too much to do to explain it to you.” Shooting back Lieutenant Breaker split into a third Lieutenant Breaker as both jumped on the remaining Lieutenant Breaker quickly incapacitating him they stripped him of his uniform and reaching out with their magic opened a hole in the earth to cover him. Standing up and getting back to work Lieutenant Breaker was glad to have finally figured out where all those terrible orders where coming from. No telling how many of the minors could have been hurt with the terrible orders Breaker was giving.
Looking at the hole in his chest Lieutenant Breaker was frustrated. His new armor will have to cover that, because it would take minutes to heal.

Mustering all of his focus, faith, and conviction, Zakkael fulfills his promise to Scyleia. Her heart is bolstered with Courage, a wall of force surrounding her and protecting her against the attacks of the enemy. SnackHappy, too, benefits from Zakkael's blessings. He feels the world slow down around him as he moves faster than most mortals could comprehend. The Gunwolf struggles to keep up with the pace of his attack.
Zakkael calls out to Heaven. "Deliver our enemies into our hands! No weapons formed against us shall prosper!" Every approach where the enemy thinks they've found a way through is blocked by a barrier of force that springs up from nowhere.
Several lead miners in defensive positions feel the same courage course through their spirit as the Breastplate of Righteousness secures them completely against weaker laser fire. Zakkael shouts to them, rousing their spirits. "The Shield of Faith is proof against the darts of the enemy. Stand firm! This evil day will be won, for the Light is our fortress and our high tower! The Light has given the Angel of Justice charge over you. I am with you until this day is won and our foe flies for fear of judgment!"
Where he is not present to prevent injury, he appears almost immediately, there to salve the wounds of the stricken. "Rise up and fight, my friends! Though you may be wounded, the Light shall see you made whole! Redouble your efforts! Let these vermin be driven before you like chaff on the wind!"
His presence ubiquitous, his faith unwavering, and his determination infectious, Zakkael spurs his allies on to fight like a legion of warring angels.
As he tours the battlefield, rendering protection or healing where he can, a lone bandit takes aim and fires a blast, striking Zakkael. Unfazed, he turns to the bandit. "The Spear of Judgment strikes true against your murderous heart. I say unto you: collect your bitter reward!" Zakkael musters a blast, striking directly at the bandit's black soul. Onlookers gasp as a bolt of pure white energy shoots through the core of the man, and a bloodcurdling shriek erupts from his mouth before falling silent, his body slumping to the ground with no visible wounds. The bandit's lifeless face is frozen in abject terror, the only earthly indication of his first glimpse of his eternal destiny.
"Fight on, my friends! You are delivered by the Light of Heaven! We have already won our victory!"

As the bandits approach, Herra hunkers down with her defenders. Taking advantage of the swell of the ley line, she empowers many of their weapons to hit hard. The defenders open fire as the hover cycles zoom into view, blowing a few of them out of the sky with psychically enhanced weapons. She watches as bandits hit the ground with a thud, some bailing others just crashing. A unit of them hover a bit uncertain, it looks like their leader has gone down.

Spotting the leader Herra breaks from the lines, her eyes glowing hypnotically. Catching his attention she reaches into his mind and orders him to tell his men to retreat. He complies, sending confusion through their ranks. As the small pocket of bandits moves in disarray the defenders pour heavy fire into them. While chaos reigns orders the leader to shoot himself and then walks back to the lines.

Going through the ranks she helps those who need healing and recharge the advancement on their weapons.

"Let us prepare for the next wave."

GM Comment to Roath
If Roath wants to go invisible and cut up lone stragglers behind the lines, that's Stealth, with a +2 for the Cloak (which, again, he can pretty much use for free as an LLW on a Ley Line). (Remember to apply the -1 penalty for this round, though.)
Roll of 4 for Stealth
Stealth Roll +2 & -1 for a roll of d6-1

Stealth: 1d6-1 = 2 (3) +2
Wild die for Stealth: 1d6-1 = 4 (5)
Active Spells are Greater Invisibility and Fear (Frightful tendrils of Darkness ripple out from the invisible Roath as he cuts down enemies with his Roxblade).
    Walking beside Arte after one of his talks with the locals the old Ley Line Walker says to the commander:

    "I have tried to boost moral where I can. I have played my part as the old man who has been there, and survived, now so can you young man, go fight for your home."

    Glancing over at Arte he smiles, "I'm not as ready for the grave as I might appear. I itch for some action. With the Ley Line so close my veins are rippling with its power....now that I have tried to inspire hope here, I think I will head out behind enemy lines and inspire fear."

    Placing his frightful helmet on Roath bows to Arte and disappears.

    His muffled and deep voice states, "Time to cut them down, any lone stragglers are mine, I shall be the invisible wave of death that cuts at their fears."

GM Request Notice Roll
Notice 1d6+2 = 5 (3)
Wild 1d6 (3)

She can also sense any nearby Rifts within 10 miles, and she can automatically sense the eruption of a new Rift, or one opening anew, within 50 miles.
  6. Ley Line Transmission: Walkers are able to send and receive spoken messages along ley lines, at any distance. This can be a wide broadcast that anyone along the line can hear, or it can be directed to a single recipient (who needs to be on the line and expecting the message).
  7. Ley Line Walking: A Ley Line Walker can, as her name implies, walk the line as though walking across level ground. She can fly at twice her Pace, at an altitude as high as 1,000 feet.

Jacob shouts not over the radio or into the PA but to himself and his Gunwolf in the cockpit as he sees the enemy's coming into his range of fire. "Sasha girl you have been waiting for this! Let's see how these bandits take to your firepower."

Jacob, in his Gunwolf strides out into the field firing his ion cannons and lasers into groups of the bandits with precision felling as many as he can. Once far enough away from allies he activates the Wolf's Howl Transmitter Array both to strike fear into his enemies and bolster the courage of the defending miners.

Battle
Battle 1d6: Auto Ace (Adventure Card) 6 + 1d6+4 = 7 (3) Wild 1d6 (5) Total = 13 (2 raises)


Battle is begun. People are fighting. People are dying. Artemeisia feels an odd sense of detachment. Rarely has she worked with anything over squad level. Even more rarely was she orchestrating the action. Of course as a student of combat she has studied historical battles, great generals and the theories behind what leads to victory and what leads to defeat.

At this point her prized chainswords are being used more like a conductor's baton than tools of death. Despite the discomfort, and for a brief second she had doubts, Artemeisia is beginning to feel the heady sense of power that comes with this role. It's not the thrill of standing against a mighty foe, toe to toe, blow for blow, deciding who wins and who is dead. Nor is it the rush of facing down a horde singlehanded. It is something new. And she likes it. After that brief moment of doubt, she fully embraces her role, and maybe it won't be fast, or pretty, but they will win. Of that, she is sure.

Still, she is drawn to the actual fighting, and given a chance will engage the enemy face to face. But not, however, at the risk of the bigger battle. The metaphors and similes and even allegories about the forces being extensions of her will, or her limbs reaching beyond her small individual body. Bending her will to the objective. Her abundance of confidence does not hinder her ability to delegate, and she uses all the tools - people, equipment, terrain, weather, magic - to the best of her and their ability.

Yes, this is a new experience, and she absolutely embraces it.

K: Battle 1d6-2 = 1 (3)
Benny Extra Effort 1d6 (3)

Total 4: 1 Token lost by the defenders
3 Tokens lost by the attackers

Bandits now have 7 tokens
Defenders have 8 tokens

Artemeisia needs to roll Spirit to maintain morale; -1 for the lost token, +4 for the prep-work, net +3.

Bandit Spirit: 1d6 (2)
Wild Spirit: 1d6 (2)


The bandits' initial rush is blunted by fouled communications and periodically losing someone to a figure that steps out of the shadows, strikes and fades again. Meanwhile, they are also frustrated by their targets being protected by Zakkael's miracles. Meanwhile, Artemeisia plays her hand like a grandmaster, putting SnackHappy's laser blasts in just the right place to take out attackers, and Hassun's inferno roasts those who dare to make it across the barricades. Scyleia drops anyone attempting to rally a new assault, and Herra's trick with mind-controlling the leader of the most effective bandits pretty much scatters them. Even with all this, however, the onslaught of laser-fire and tossed grenades does inflict some damage.

But then, the bandits flee into the hills, heading away at high speed.

OOC Comments
Okay, so the bandits failed their morale check by 3, even with the extra effort of the bennie, so yeah, we're over here. Heh. Without a wild card leading them, the bandits really didn't have a chance. I'll have to do another post tomorrow for the conclusion, and then we'll be on to the next adventure.

As the battle want, Herra watches the bandits file for the hills. Survivors may cause problems later. However, for the moment, the danger has passed.

Moving around the battlefield she assists any medical personnel with healing until her powers are exhausted. While being drained leaves he uneasy, having their force at full fighting capacity is important too.

Having helped as much as she can, Herra seeks out Arte.

"Well fought as always. What is our next course of action?"

Echo manages to strip some basic weapons off the bandits. Probably not as good as her peers, but it's definitely something she can use.

OOC Comments
Basically, she gets as many of each of these as she wants:

Light Combat "Ride" Armor (+5),
Wilk’sRemi 130 “Six-Shooter” Laser Pistol (Range 15/30/60, Damage 2d6+1, RoF 1, AP 2)
Vibroknife (Str+d6, AP 4, Mega Damage)
2 'short' E-clips

Zakkael watches as the last of the bandits speeds away in the opposite direction. Seeing no counter-offensive being mounted, he bows his head and whispers a quiet prayer of thanks. He turns to his comrades in arms, raises all four arms in victory, and shouts. "Thanks be to the Light, who has delivered this enemy into our hands and driven them before us. Let Heaven receive all credit due for our miraculous defense! The mercy of Heaven is endless, and judgment against marauders swift and sure!"
He walks among the battle lines, seeking out any who may need healing, and lending his share of the light to their wellness. "The Light of Heaven has mended your wounds. Rejoice! You are delivered from those who would steal, kill, and destroy all you care about."
He eventually returns to Artemeisia's side. "Commander, the defense is victorious. What wounded we can salve are taking their brief convalescence, thanks to the healing power of the Light. With your permission, I shall survey the surrounding land for stragglers or our own lost townsfolk." Assuming permission is granted, he takes to the skies in a brisk patrolling orbit, sending his scrying sight here and there, wherever something is to be found.

Hassun, too, gets his choice of the spoils. None of his helper beasts were actually large enough to have been more than warning systems during the fight, and any that were not under his direct control fled once the sound of the hoverbikes and robot armors began, so there was very little direct damage to the animals (though obviously, the forest surrounding the mining settlement took a fair bit of laser, grenade and rocket damage). Hassun's able to put out any small fires that were started by the weapons, though, so that's good.

OOC Comments
Hassun also get the same gear selection as Echo, above, and in theory, either of them could claim a hoverbike if they wanted. No Robot Horses, though--they either ran off or were destroyed when their riders fell.

Morale
Spirit 1d8+3 = 5 (2) Wild 1d6+3 = 5 (2)


The battle seems to be going well. The defenders have lost a not-insignificant amount of troops. Perhaps, someone should shore up the morale of the rest Artemeisia thinks. He calls Roath and Zakkael to move amongst the defenders and bolster their spirits, keep them informed of how much good they are doing and the need to avenge their fallen brethren, and similar platitudes. Of course she doesn't dismiss it as such when asking for aid from the other two charismatic 7th members. She offers an ancient piece of wisdom to them, if they wish, "When they remain in garrison, soldiers are maintained with fear and punishment; when they are then led to war, with hope and reward."

When the bandits run and the battle is over, Artemeisia is forced to answer another question: what now?

Herra is one of the first to ask. "Well my friend, we must secure the area now that the enemy has been driven off. There are surely survivors and prisoners to be dealt with. Since we are not equipped to guard or transport, or provide medical aid, we will turn those duties over to the local population," Artemeisa answers. That seems a reasonable choice, for that problem at least. "If you you are inquiring about your next course of action, it looks like you need to rest. Find some food and take a moment to reenergize while we have a lull." She turns toward Herra, "You are more than welcome to stay here of course. This was my first real practical application of years of theoretical study of warfare. As you likely are away, one must study all scales to excel at any scale. I found it far more rewarding than I would have imagined."

She does not issue orders or directives to her SET comrades, leaving them to do what they know best. To that effect, she affirms Zakkael's instincts to succor all the wounded. She also informs him that she will request the other allies in patrolling for the stragglers and wounded. She asks him, "In your most devout opinion, how best should we lay the dead to rest?" If Zakkael wants to further participate in that task, she is fully supportive. Otherwise she will delegate.

"We need to send out patrols to pick up stragglers, and eventually deal with any dead from both sides," she informs the commanders of the other forces, quickly trying to delegate the activities to the locals.

Having dealt with any more pressing tasks wrapping things up, Artemeisia turns again to Herra. "I believe we have done a good thing here today. The bandits may return, of course. Today we were victorious."

Zakkael nods to Artemeisia. "The loss of what few dead we have will still weigh heavily on those who love them. We should seek out what families they have, if they are in town or within range of communications, and ascertain their burial preferences. I am willing to commend their noble souls to Heaven, and intercede at the Gates on their behalf, should that be the wishes of their families. Those without family or preference shall have the Angel of Justice plead their case before the Gates of Heaven, even this very day. There is no greater love than for one to lay down his or her life for another. All who fell today showed that great love, and Heaven does not overlook their sacrifice. The Light shines on them, one and all."

He looks around at the battle weary, but victorious, townsfolk. "I can see to this task personally, once my reconnoiter is complete."

Notice 5 (rolled above post)
    The silent and invisible old Line Walker limping towards camp stops. Taking a deep breath he steels his nerves and pushes the pain away. He wasn't wounded in the battle. No. Worse. Swinging the mighty flame blade repeatedly he had cut down man after man as a invisible demon shrouded by the power from the Ley Line. It made his shoulder ache. What was normally a dull continuous pain was now a inferno of screaming pain. The same was true of his hip and right knee.

    Just before he let the invisibility spell go Roath stood tall and pushed all signs of his pain away. Materializing seemingly out of nowhere he made his way through the masses.

    Jimmy, the young man who had spoken with Roath the night before on the ramparts looked concerned seeing the old Line Walker who's black armor and cloak was covered in blood.

    "Not my blood."

    Jimmy waved and smiled glad to see the old man still alive. He saw Roath a little different now. Old yes. But not a worn out old man. A killer. Thankfully on his side.

    Jimmy was glad to be alive himself. "I'm thankful to the Legion and to you, your words rang in my ears during the battle. Thank you."

    Roath nodded. Smiled and waved. Silently he grunted, moved on and finally sat down next to a cook fire, his bones cracklings as he sat. They had done it. Arte had done well. They all had.

    Roath dropped his demonic looking helmet beside himself and sighed heavily.

    That seriously wore me out. I need a nap.

  3. Ley Line Magic Mastery: Like all arcane casters (see Ley Lines, page119), Ley Line Walkers can draw extra PPE from ley lines, though they do so with greater advantage. As a free action, they can roll their Spellcasting skill to draw PPE from a line at a distance of Spirit × 3, and they multiply their current maximum PPE by ×3 while at that distance or closer.

  5. Ley Line Sense: A Ley Line Walker can sense a ley line within 10 miles, and she can automatically tell how powerful it is, in what directions it flows, where it meets other ley lines at nexus points, and other aspects as might apply (such as if a huge amount of its energy is being siphoned for some other purpose). She can also sense any nearby Rifts within 10 miles, and she can automatically sense the eruption of a new Rift, or one opening anew, within 50 miles.
  6. Ley Line Transmission: Walkers are able to send and receive spoken messages along ley lines, at any distance. This can be a wide broadcast that anyone along the line can hear, or it can be directed to a single recipient (who needs to be on the line and expecting the message).
  7. Ley Line Walking: A Ley Line Walker can, as her name implies, walk the line as though walking across level ground. She can fly at twice her Pace, at an altitude as high as 1,000 feet.

Letting Sasha howl once more as he chases a few stragglers encouraging their hasty departure. Looks like we built some solid walls for them to break on. Glad I could help. Jacob looks around and aids any of the survivors in making it back to camp. He builds a few simple stretchers out of any material he can find to aid in the transport of them. Once the wounded have been taken care of he sits down next to Roath at the fire. "That's a lot of blood old man. I take it you got one or two of them? I tell you what these miners fight tougher than I thought they would."

Is there an objection to taking two sets of knives and guns so I can give one to my duplicate?
I bought the splinter as Construct, because it is a power many GMs are uncomfortable with, so it would not have a knife or gun mechanically normally.

Scyleia will also inspect some of her handywork, specifically she is looking for a vibro-sword or two.

After her scavenging efforts, she finds Artemeisia...
