Mission Log

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> After defeating the mercenaries and the stationary defenses, and making sure the area around the bunker has no more surprises, team beams down with a detachment of warriors in front of the bunker’s only entrance. Attempts to scan inside the bunker were thwarted by the magnesite dust used as part of the building materials, and beam-in attempts also proved fruitless.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> The area around the main entrance is completely cleared out, and the air is still thick with dust from the destruction at the local mountain and smell of burnt metal from the nearby turret remains. Team is greeted by a standard issue blast doors, with a metal statue of general Chang above them.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:"Hah! They think this will stop us?

Egzo@HF_Mud gives the statue of the old war hero only a brief glance before approaching the door and considering the locking mechanism(s).

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Lessee what we got.”

B’Atar@anncaris looks to the statue as well, letting Egzo handle the door as she glances around the turrets, “Where are their actual warriors, I wonder…”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:“Should we blow this up with some explosives, or you think you can open it?”

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 18 (1-100)

Egzo@HF_Mud can’t even get the panel off. :(

Egzo@HF_Mud looks around for the hidden override, but doesn’t find any.

Egzo@HF_Mud turns back to the others with a shrug.

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Guess we blow it up!”

[Team]Ho’ruk@gulrema:b’atar and Aestae, you can roll perception checks

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 3 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Oh dear

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 74 (1-100)


[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:B’atar is already contemplating EXPLOSIVES

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:hehe yes

Aestae Vali@crystyl ahems and indicates a spot above the door where there appears to be a surveillance camera.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:grumbles Seems we are being observed, eh?

[Local]Aestae Vali@crystyl:“Assuming there’s anyone left on the end. I don’t know, maybe should just try waving and asking them to open…”

B’Atar@anncaris looks around a bit, through the dust before spotting the camera, “Could be a trap and they’re observing us remotely. But all these defenses and mercs outside…bit much for a trap.”

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Let’s blow the door, in case it is a trap. Then they can’t lock us back in.”

Egzo@HF_Mud unslings his pulsewave and shoots to blind, either way.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:glances at B’Atar This looks like a secured military depot. Many of those scattered across the Empire, keeping the vital supplies."

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> The blast hits the area where camera is, and it sparks and goes dark.

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Maybe they’ve hijacked it and turned it into their own base.”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:grunts We’d know if KDF facility is…or was here. So they must have set it up on their own. to Egzo Explosives time.

Egzo@HF_Mud nods. “Looks like. You any good with charges?”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:I scuttled a ship or two in my time.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:looks at the doors Correct placing and using correct explosive type is the key.

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:"Right. You take that side…?’

[Team]Ho’ruk@gulrema:whoever wants to assist with door breaking, Tech or Science rolls plox

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 86 (1-100)

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“I’ll leave this to the tech experts.”

[Emotes]Ho’ruk@gulrema:rolls 56 (1-100)

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> After checking the door composition, Egzo calls down some “equipment” from the Hag’lhr: 4 large chunks of clay-like material, and a sprayer with a small container of sickly-green looking liquid.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Egzo uses the sprayer to deliver liquid to 4 points on the doors, liquid sticking and slowly corroding the locations, creating small holes on the metallic surface. This expends the entire container,

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:- and Egzo sighs as he’ll have to pay small fortune to get another container of this rare acidic compound. After the acid does its work, he and Ho’ruk gently fill the holes with clay-like material and stick your typical short-range detonators into them

Egzo@HF_Mud does all of this with the practiced motions and great care of the experienced demo man/ship cracker.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:claps his hands in a cleaning manner This should do it! That acid or whatever it is will surely help.

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Aight, everybody clear.” He puts action to word himself, backing off from the door and around a bit of framework.


[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:moves to the side himself

Egzo@HF_Mud looks around, makes sure everyone’s safe, then hits the detonator trigger.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:holsters his weapon and claps his ears Ready when you are.

B’Atar@anncaris stands aside as well.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Loud explosion blows the doors’ sides, detaching it from the stonework and they simply collapse inwards.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:laughs heartily That’s it, nice and clean!

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:unholsters his disruptor again Time to see what’s inside.

Egzo@HF_Mud looks around the corner and nods in great satisfaction re: his work.

B’Atar@anncaris unholsters her own disruptor as well, “Aye, let’s see what cowardly targs are hiding behind these blast doors!”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> They hallway is dark, there’s only some weak background lighting of the distance.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> However, as Egzo and Ho’ruk peek from the door sides, they light up in green light as disrutor bolts start flying!

Egzo@HF_Mud ducks back. “Knew it.”

[Emotes]Ho’ruk@gulrema:rolls 52 (1-100)

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:gimme a roll

B’Atar@anncaris takes out a tricorder, scanning to see if there are lifeforms or more turrets, and how far away.

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 99 (1-100)


[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 37 (1-100)

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:Damn right I was expecting that.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:leans back in cover, putting his disrutor at maximum setting There’s at least four of them at the end of the corridor.

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Who brought grenades?”

B’Atar@anncaris grins, “I got some!”

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:there’s actually five of them, four klingons to the sides armed with standard disruptor rifes, and a gorn on a bipod disruptor hand cannon. There’s a small makeshift wall in front.

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Aim high, they got a low wall back there, in front of a portable cannon.”

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:of them they use as cover, you are also fairly sure you can use your tricorder to over load that cannon

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Gimme a sec, I think I can mess with that.”

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:hallways also have the support pillars on regular intervals you can use as cover

Egzo@HF_Mud re-slings his disruptor and starts tapping at his tricorder. While he works, he observes, “Could use some of those support pillars for cover… /after/ we shut down the…”


[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:gimem a tech roll, you have a +20 bonus

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Looks like they got a Gorn.”

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 88 (1-100)

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:"Got it. On 3?

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:to B’atar So that is the big guy at the cannon?

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:nods to Egzo, holding his pistol with both hands

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Girl, probably. Gorn ladies are bigger 'n meaner.”

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:emote when you activate the overload

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Must be,” she takes out a grenade, getting ready to toss it down the hall

Egzo@HF_Mud counts off quietly, 1, 2, and pushes the tricorder key along with his louder “3!”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> As Egzo presses a key on the tricorder, the largest bolts stop coming down the hallway. This is followed by a frustrated hiss and then something explodes!

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Fire stops completely, for a moment.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- ROUND 1 –

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:"GO GO GO!

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- B’atar’s action –

B’Atar@anncaris peers around the corner and rolls a grenade, aiming for the end of the hall where the enemies are.

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 29 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:May as well stick with it, don’t wanna use up a reroll for a middling one.

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Plus don’t wanna roll 100 and kill everyone in one go anyways hehe

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Good to start a little light.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> The grenade flies but unfortunately it hits ceiling of the hallway and drops just in front of the small makeshift wall that was set up by the defenders. It does no significant damage, but it lights the area, showing 4 klingons stunned from the blast that forced them to kiss the nearby walls, and crouched form of the gorn that is sounding like they are in a lot of pain.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action –

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Now’s your chance, hit them with everything you got!”

B’Atar@anncaris ducks back into cover.

Aestae Vali@crystyl leans out of cover, firing at whatever targets she can spot.

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 60 (1-100)

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Aestae’s shot finds one of the klingons and takes them out!

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:shouts and charges in firing as he reaches first pillar for cover

[Emotes]Ho’ruk@gulrema:rolls 54 (1-100)

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Ho’ruk’s fire takes out another klingon.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Remaining klingons regain their senses and move back to cover, taking aim.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- ROUND 2 –

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- Egzo’s action –

Egzo@HF_Mud charges around the corner, blasting his pulsewave more to keep heads down at this range as he makes his way to the first pillar.

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 92 (1-100)

Egzo@HF_Mud gets there and decides to go for a second.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Gorn gets up all angry, and eats a blast in the chest, not enough to disable them, but they are knocked down…again.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- B’Atar’s action –

B’Atar@anncaris follows Egzo’s example, charging in and opening fire as well, being careful not to hit Egzo in front of her.

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 13 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:okay that I think I will reroll hehe

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 35 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:not great…but not terrible either…

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:At least it wasn’t lower than the first roll!

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> B’Atar’s fire knocks the rifle out the hands of one of the klingons and forces him to dive behind the makeshift wall

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action –

Aestae Vali@crystyl keeps taking cheap shots from the back to sucker punch those stunned by the fighters

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 42 (1-100)

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Aestae’s fire hits the makeshift wall but misses the last klingon.

Ho’ruk@gulrema aims and tries to pick off the only visible klingon at the moment.

[Emotes]Ho’ruk@gulrema:rolls 69 (1-100

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> As the klingon shifted trying to evade Aestae’s shots, Ho’ruk’s disruptor bolt hits him in the head and blows it cleeean off.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> There’s only a short moment of silence, followed by a roar of the angry gorn. Massive reptilian figure rises up, grabbing the last hiding klingon, lifting it up and swinging him with unexpected speed at the attackers. Ho’ruk, who was checking his pistol’s status after rarely used maximum power setting, is caught surprised and he and screaming klingon end up in a brawl on the ground.

Ho’ruk@gulrema curses as he loses grip of his pistol and starts wrestling with the klingon “projectile”.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- ROUND 3 –

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- Egzo’s action –

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Klingon projectile hah!

Egzo@HF_Mud was definitely not expecting that, and actually has to take a moment to figure out what to do next.

Egzo@HF_Mud decides he has no real way to assist Ho’ruk in his brawl, and takes another snap shot from behind the pillar instead.

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 75 (1-100)

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:Egzo is NOT getting any closer to that crazy Gorn if he can help it.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Gorn looms on the other and of hallway, their hands and chest wounded and bleeding. Their mouth are spitting saliva and showing a row of very sharp teeth. The giant lizard takes another blast in the chest, which seems to only anger it more

Egzo@HF_Mud ducks back and grunts a curse as that /still/ doesn’t put the Gorn down.

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:you saw your Gorn going berserk once…it was not pretty, he tore thorugh enemies but you had to stun him to hell and back once he ran outta enemy targets

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- B’Atar’s action –

[Tell]ToHo’ruk@gulrema:Shlaak , and that’s not his usual style - he must have been /really/ pissed.

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:yeah, he got hurt quite badly during a fight that went bad and your bridge was boarded


B’Atar@anncaris decides the big tough Gorn is worth tossing another grenade at, this time hoping to place it closer on target…

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 69 (1-100)

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> The grenade flies straight towards the gorn and hits it in the chest, immediately detonating. Gorn’s growl is cut off as this seems to be too much, even for them, and they simply drop backwards with a loud “thump”.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action –

Aestae Vali@crystyl checks for any more enemies.

[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:not sure that even requires a roll…

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Only one alive is the klingon that’s wrestling with Ho’ruk.

Aestae Vali@crystyl doesn’t risk taking a shot at that one.

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:this is where we all stand around, eat popcorn and place bets.

[Emotes]Ho’ruk@gulrema:rolls 12 (1-100)

[Emotes]Ho’ruk@gulrema:rolls 27 (1-100)

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Ho’ruk and klingon soldier struggle on the ground, rolling around as each tries to get advantage, without luck.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:pants and gasps You go forward…I’ll deal…with this one…

Egzo@HF_Mud shakes his head, sets his pulsewave aside, and wades in with that same familiarity as before - in this case, someone used to breaking up fights between unruly pirates.

[Team]Ho’ruk@gulrema:freeform now, up to you whether to move forward or handle this

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 17 (1-100)

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Egzo tries to grab the offending klingon but only manages to get a foot in the shoulder.

[Emotes]Ho’ruk@gulrema:rolls 17 (1-100)

B’Atar@anncaris watches as Egzo stepped in before she had a chance to, “I’d jab him with my rifle, but might be worth questioning this one. See what this place is all about.”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> The klingon uses the confusion to get an advantage, he manages to free up his hand, fast-draw his pistol and point blank shoots the Ho’ruk in the chest!

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Ho’ruk releases his grip and lies on the ground, motionless.

[Team]Ho’ruk@gulrema:dude rolled 100 lel


[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Clearly this guy was the final boss, not the Gorn

Egzo@HF_Mud actually looks shocked, then his face gets all serious and even uglier as he drags the defender off the body with no further nicety.

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Big /mistake/, cutter.”

[Tell]Ho’ruk@gulrema:you do realize the guy is now actually armed

[Team]Ho’ruk@gulrema:everyone can act on this

Egzo@HF_Mud disarms his foe, not particularly caring if he has to break something to get him to let go

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 69 (1-100)

[Team]Ho’ruk@gulrema:klingon is on his knees, he just got rid of the Ho’ruk and has a gun

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:And now Egzo has him in a grip and he doesn’t.

B’Atar@anncaris rushes over in case Egzo needs assistance with him.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Egzo, expertly grabs and twists klingon’s arm with excessive force, and klingon drops the gun as there’s a loud SNAP and a growl.

B’Atar@anncaris quickly kicks his gun away from him and points the rifle at the Klingon’s head, away from Egzo, “Tell me what you’re doing here and we’ll give you a warrior’s death. Otherwise we’re beaming you into the brig. Or maybe I’ll blast your head off right here while you’re being held down.”

Aestae Vali@crystyl meanwhile checks on Ho’ruk.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:Klingon: spits his blood? on the ground Fire, then! You’ll just join me in the afterlife in couple of minutes!

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Guess it’s the brig for you then. I’ll see you there in…fifty, hundred years? However long you’ve got left in your natural life, which you’ll spend withering away in a cell.”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:Klingon: We are all dead!

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“What are you, trying to be Jem’Hadar?”

Aestae Vali@crystyl does what she can to stabilize his condition while the others are busy.

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Self-destruct?” He forces the broken arm a little further with the question.

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:Klingon: looks at her with disdain We were just buying some time! This place will blow up soon! Run away, or try to stop us, I don’t care!

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“If they’re self-destructing, they must be trying to hide something. Let’s beam this one back to the brig and stop it if we can.”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Klingon winces at the pain, but offers only curses in return.

Egzo@HF_Mud gives the prisoner his contemptuous thanks, and then a shove combined with a trip that should send him falling or at least stumbling forward, clear for others to deal with

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 9 (1-100)

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:(reroll that, for srs)

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 16 (1-100)

[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:should reroll that too



[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 9 (1-100)

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 73 (1-100)


[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:fekh :(

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:You got the exact same roll

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Not even lower, just the same thing

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Egzo shoves the klingon into other guards, who knock him out with glee and take his body outside.

B’Atar@anncaris looks to Aestae, “How is he?”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:<FX> Aestae’s nimble hands work wonders with tricorder and medikit, and Ho’ruk’s breathing stabilizes, enough for the other warriors to take him out for emergency beamout.

[Local]Aestae Vali@crystyl:“He’s stable for now, but he’s out of the fight”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:is now Lt. Krull

Egzo@HF_Mud huhs as Ho’ruk vanishes in transporter sparkle. “Huh. Tough cutter. Figured it was all over but the death shout.”

[Local]Ho’ruk@gulrema:nods to B’atar Commander. Orders?

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“Anyway, we better hurry.”
