4.2 Out in Force!

Post by KahlessNestor »

Date: November 26, 109 PA
Mission: Day 2
Time: 0050
Weather: Normal for season (chilly); light wind; light snow
Location: Wilderness
Ley Line: No
Scene modifiers:
  • Light: Dark (-4)
Round 0 - Prep

[Keep writing your interludes. The week came up, so it was time for the next post.]

The light snow continued to fall, and the occasional moon illuminated the Trailblazer’s campsite. The drone overhead was quiet at first, then grew louder. The shape of a SAMAS flew across the moon as it passed over the camp. It circled around and flew over again before veering off toward the southeast.

About ten minutes later, the glow of lights could be seen cresting the low hills as a military transport rolled to a stop. There was some distant shouting, and figures began to disengage from the sides of the transport and jump out from the back. They immediately started forming up into units as a large, armored robot came up behind them. Two of the units swung out in flanking maneuvers to the sides to encircle the camp, one left and one right, with a larger one in the center moving straight for the camp. A fourth unit remained in reserve near the robot, and the SAMAS circled overhead.

Communicating over radio, the Coalition forces were eerily silent in the night, though they weren’t being stealthy as they launched their attack.
Instructions
There’s no surprise here. There’s no real hiding a night approach by a force this big, so you would have had plenty of notice. You can have one round of preparation. We will start Round 1 next week. Since they totally smoked you on initiative, I really, really didn’t want to bring their entire firepower down on you all at once, so we’ll do normal initiative for this fight.

Right flank - roughly 12”, Light cover -2
Center - roughly 25”

After being alerted to the force coming and seeing it visually Thomas was all action. His normal lazy demeanor fled away. "Lets move people, everyone up and start rolling this is either going to big cluster or we are going to run like we have never ran before!" With the words out, Thomas immediately conjured his most powerful illusion over the camp, of everyone sitting still and still sleeping. So their preparations to flee could not be seen.

Contingent
I do not know what is happening here. I saw some of the commentary in the Discord, but it was 100+ comments that sounded like this was going to be a chase scene instead of a battle.

If this is going to be a pitched battle, then I will roll some dice, but right now I am a little confused.

If this is a battle then I will combined a full on Deadly Illusion and all 13 PPE with a Exalted Conceal Arcana.

[Reworking the post per our discussion. Bad guys go first, but you guys get a prep round. Remember, it’s an Action to get into the Cassowary.]

The light snow continued to fall, and the occasional moon illuminated the Trailblazer’s campsite. The drone overhead was quiet at first, then grew louder. The shape of a SAMAS flew across the moon as it passed over the camp. It circled around and flew over again before veering off toward the southeast.

About ten minutes later, the glow of lights could be seen cresting the low hills as a Coalition Mark V APV rolled into view, followed by the towering form of a UAR-1, spotlights moving to illuminate the campsite, the SAMAS circling overhead.

Post by Vik »

Vik rouses from his usual drunken stupor when the SAMAS buzzes the camp, the lizard part of his brain long accustomed to making life-saving decisions while practically unconscious.

"Up and at 'em, you daft dodgers, there's wanking nobs at the door!" he mumbles, stumbling to his feet while peering up at the power-armored scout. "Arse-breathed Nazi twats, if my scry-balls it to be believed, and a shed-load at that."

Wasting no time, Vik grabs his kit and throws it in the Cassowary -- but not without first giving himself a shot of the old Go-Go-Go-Go-Go! Juice from his Hype-Me-Up Hypo. Assuming no one objects, he settles in behind the controls of the Helios cannon, then pulls out his View-Master of Mastery and gives himself a crash course on cannonering.

Ryder's cybernetics had warned him about the approaching danger about the same time Vic started to roust everyone, so he was up and moving pretty quickly. As he gets the Cassowary online, he calls out to Thomas. "Picking up a UAR-1, a SAMAS and a Mark V APC, as well as... lots of ground troops. They're coming in hot, no time to play nice, it looks like. You want the Cannon on the Sammie or the UAR-1? SAMAS can catch up to us easier, but the UAR's got the range to lob missiles at us from downtown."

At first Bari is transfixed by the speed and grace of the flying machine/man. Having never seen the Coalitions power armor before he's unaware of the eminent danger until Vik speaks up. Soon everyone is in frantic motion packing up what they can and making for the Aeon Cassoway. The young dragon assumes his human form and hops in as well.

Thomas looks at the list of enemies generate already. "Vik is right, though I doubt he knows it. That UAR is the thing that scares me, the cannon is the only thing that will hurt it. While we have others who can potentially harm a SAMUS."

At the first sound of a SAMAS, Ash was already moving; grabbing her gear and abandoning her bedroll and personal effects as she scrambled into her armor and made for the Cassowary. Noisome, boundless terror was bubbling up from a seemingly endless source. The Coalition had found her at last.

Nevermind they were probably just as much after the others as her. They might not even have identified her. It didn't matter. She knew who they were.

While everyone got as much gear as they could stowed, and prepared, Ashley turned to face the ridge as the first lights appeared. Her heart sank to see the Enforcer. Even she would have trouble cracking that shell. Running was the only option...but the rail cannon on the giant robot had a hell of a range.

She concentrated on the field between herself and the Coalition forces. Immediately sparks and embers flared in the grasses and shrubs. Across a wide area, flames swiftly spread. Not the vaporizing plasma fire she was capable of though. No no, a much more sedate burn. Calculated to create a thick column of smoke between her friends and her enemies. The heat from the fires should throw off infrared optics too; she hoped.

Then Ash ran to the Cassowary and jumped inside. They had to go. Now.

Using this with Elemental Fury to create a zone 12" across that will give cover to the Cassowary from the Enforcer and APC due to heat and smoke.

Round 1

The Mark V APV charged forward across the relatively flat ground of the southwest Minnesota prairie toward the Trailblazer’s camp as they loaded up into the Aeon Cassowary. The gunner on the laser turret opened up on the Cassowary, firing through the smoke. The laser hit them square, but not enough to get through the Cassowary’s armor.

The UAR-1 stomped after them, as well. It fired several missiles. The first impacted the Cassowary hard, and the second hit them as well, causing them to skid a little.
Ryder
First hit is 2 Wounds that need to be soaked, a Vehicle Critical Hits roll if you don’t soak both, and an Out of Control roll. Second hit is another Out of Control roll..
The SAMAS roared after the Cassowary as well, though it couldn’t reach a firing range yet.

[Ryder has some rolls to make for the Cassowary, and then it is the players’ turn.]

The more he thought of the situation the madder Thomas got, until eventually it started pouring from him like water from a fountain. "The goddamned Coalition again. Why can't they all just die, the useless hate filled Nazi. Every time we see them they are trying to murder us, and to make it worse when people act like it is only the command that is bad. That's BULLSHIT. I doubt a general is hanging out with a company here in the field. No they will be led by a lowly Captain. But does he go on his way minding his own business. No these Nazi's bags of shit have to mess with us. Charles retires and instead of it giving us a chance to operate safely we end up being ambushed at every turn..." The rambling annoyance goes on for a full 10 or 12 seconds before Thomas realizes no one is listening to him and brings himself together.

Rolls
Taking 3 actions to shoot the Enforcer with the Helios cannon. The first action gets an additional shot due to Rapid Fire. No MAP due to Exalted Quickness. Long range is -4, reduced to -2 by the STS. Improved Stabilizers negate Unstable Platform. Shooting is 1d12 with a free reroll for each shot due to Greater Boost Trait.

D'oh. I missed the net +3 Shooting from the Helios cannon the first time around, so adding that in Green.

Damage 4 3d10!!+1d6!!: [2, 9, 7]+[5] = 23 = Shaken (or 1 Wound if already Shaken)
"Ramming speed, if you please Master Ryder, only pointed in like the opposite direction of them goose-stepping wankers what's tryin' ta put it in our back end."

Settling in behind the controls of the main turret, he lets the magically-induced rush of competence wash over him like medical-grade speed.

"Time for a bit of the ol' razzle-dazzle, you skull-buggering arse-berries," he says, before squeezing the trigger and sending an eye-watering deluge of weaponized sunshine into the guts of the UAR-1. Each blast is dead-on, but the daylight-infused laser beams don't cause nearly as much damage as Vik was hoping for.

"Oy, Barry, give them consoles a peep and see if there's a dial what goes up to 11 somewheres. Them knobs in the stompy tin-man's a mite harder than what ol' Vik was anticipatin'."

Four hits with raises:
  • 21 damage, AP 20 = no effect
  • 28 damage, AP 20 = 1 Wound
  • 24 damage, AP 20 = Shaken (or 1 Wound if already Shaken)
  • 23 damage, AP 20 = Shaken (or 1 Wound if already Shaken)

As the UAR's missiles strike around the Cassowary, Ryder doesn't so much dodge the blasts as use them to propel the ride to the place he wants to be. As Vik takes over the Cannon, Ryder just focuses on keeping the Cassowary out of range of the rest of the CS guns.

There really wasn't much he could do to help in this situation. Even if the Aeon Casoways smaller gun had the range he was still learning to shoot and none of his psionic powers were of much use since they only helped him. Then an idea strikes. moving through the jostling interior he heads to the ladder leading to the roof climbing to just below the hatch. "Mr. Ryder, tell me when the flying man is getting close and I will jump out, get big, and smoosh him." he hollers to the trimadore operator.

Round 2

The UAR stumbled as it was blasted by the solar cannon, and one of the hits seemed to have been directly on the bridge.

[Enemies won initiative again]

The UAR continued to lumber after the Cassowary. Another volley of missiles flew toward the Cassowary. Two of the missiles slammed into the Cassowary again.
Ryder
First hit is 3 Wounds to Soak, 1 Out of Control roll, and if a Wound is not soaked, a Vehicle Critical Hit roll.

Second hit is 2 Wounds to Soak, 1 Out of Control roll, and if a Wound is not soaked, a Vehicle Critical Hit roll.
The SAMAS dashed after the Cassowary as well, but was still out of range to fire.

The Mark V rumbled over the prairie after the Cassowary, closing the distance further, but it was still not within range.

Once again, Ryder makes the dodging of the attacks seem almost effortless, Trimadore and Mountaineer acting completely in sync.

"I know I'm good at this, folks, but even I can't keep it up forever. Do we got a long-term plan, here?"

Rolls
Creating a Smite device, using it on the cannon (w/Greater Smite), then creating a Warrior's Gift device. No MAP due to Exalted Quickness.

TW to create Smite device 1d12!!+2: [1]+2 = 3
Wild 1d6!!+2: [5]+2 = 7 = Success to create, has 10 PPE

TW to use it on the cannon 1d12!!+2: [5]+2 = 7
Wild 1d6!!+2: [8!!]+2 = 10 = Success with a Raise, uses 3 PPE and adds +6 to damage

TW to create Warrior's Gift device 1d12!!+2: [7]+2 = 9 = Created with a Raise, 15 PPE
Wild 1d6!!+2: [2]+2 = 4
"Jack-booted, bird-beshited, pie-buggering gits," Vik curses, having failed to damage the UAR-1 in the way he had planned.

"Ryder, mate, ol' Vik's giving you the controls for a tick whilst he tries to knacker up a touch of ace in the hole, so t'speak," he says, letting loose the trigger of the Helios cannon while he digs into his toolbelt.

Quick as he can, Vik cobbles together an over-sized Energizer E-Clip, which he briefly clips onto the wiring serving the cannon. There's a flash of light accompanied by a brief digitized snippet of synths from "The Final Countdown" after which the cannon visibly pulses with energy.

"Here go, Barry-boy," he says, handing the techno-magicked gizmo off to the dragon. "Anybody needs a bit of extra smashy-bashy, give 'em a shot with that and they'll plow right through these tossers like ol' Tom plowed that ... well, um, story for another time, right."

Settling back into his seat, Vik pulls together a few more odds and ends which he fashions into a crystal-studded reticule not unlike his View-Master.

"Reckon I'll call this one the ol' Dubya-Dubya-Dubya, eh, Wondrous Widget of War?" he says, preparing to give himself a dose of expert soldiering know-how.

Shots with the Helios cannon are now at +6 damage.

"Smoke and fire aren't doing enough to hide us," Ashley reported. "And they're too far away for me to attack! I don't know if I could hurt an Enforcer regardless, but at least I could try..."

She shakes her head. "Sorry I'm not really pulling my weight here. Would it help if I handled some of the controls?"


(OOC - I could offer a Support roll perhaps?)
