Mission Log

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> The squad rushes towards the main bunker control room. There’s very litte resistance after they defeated the gorn and their buddies at the bunker entrance, and Lt. Krull and other warriors are dealing with the stragglers. The team arrives at the bend that leads to the control room. There’s a small flight of stairs in front of them, and just behind the stairs is another makeshift barricade.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> This barricade is manned by 4 klingons with an unusual ridge structure, very rarely seen in the empire nowadays. They wear different, better quality armors and rifles. Their melee weapons are also nonstandard, somewhat archaic, but well maintained. Behind them, at one console, is a high klingon woman talking to someone on the console.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> To the woman’s left, behind the consoles, are two klingons crouched over the open casing of a photon torpedo.

B’Atar@anncaris looks around, “What is this, some kind of secret society?”

Egzo@HF_Mud shrugs. “Got me.”

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Squad is not spotted yet, but as soon as they move from the cover of the corridor bend, they will be in the open.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:K. woman: No, you are not coming back, Korrda! You messed up and it’s too late now. KDF forces will rush us any moment now

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“Let’s take them out fast and see if we can stop that self-destruct.”

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<Korrda> But the replicators-

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:K. woman: Forget the replicators! Just make sure you bring those freighters and mining equipment to our staging grounds! You can at least do that without messing up.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<Korrda> There’s no way we left any evidence of our attack! They must have found…

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:K. woman: It matters little now. Do you job and we will do ours! cuts the comms and turns to the klingon duo by the torpedo What’s taking so long?

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:so, to make it clear

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:between this woman and you, at the bottom of the stairs, is the makeshift wall of boxes and 4 klingons armed with disruptor rifles and actual body armor

B’Atar@anncaris takes out a third grenade and looks to Egzo, “Ready?”

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:then there’s the woman, carrying similar armor and dual pistols. and behind her and consoles she’s at, two more klingons working on a makeshift torpedo/bomb

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:behind them is the entry to the main storage area, and you can see packed industrial replicators deeper in the storage area

Egzo@HF_Mud nods back, lifting his pulsewave slightly.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:Demo klingon: We are removing the failsafes, we’ll have it primed in less than a minute!

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:are we doing rounds or should I start the action?

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:K. woman: Only left to wipe the database…starts typing

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:just emote when you are starting the fight

B’Atar@anncaris peers over the corner and aims to throw the grenade over the barricade at the Klingons behind it.

Egzo@HF_Mud swings out low and fires off a disruptor blast.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> One of the klingon shouts as she peeks out and they raise their rifles, too late to stop the throw though.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- ROUND 1 –

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- B’atar’s action –

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 55 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:for the grenade action earlier

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> The grenade overshoots the klingons a bit, the blast fails to hurt them significantly, but the two in the middle are thrown over the barricade

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Egzo’s action –

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Klingon women curses at the explosion and speeds up typing…

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 61 (1-100)

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> One of the klingons that was thrown over the barricade tries to stand up, but Egzo’s blast catches him square in the chest, and he gets thrown over the barricade again. This time he doesn’t try to stand up

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action –

Aestae Vali@crystyl does her usual of leaving the heavy hitters to their thing and taking potshots from cover at anyone who’s vulnerable

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

[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:…


[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:gonna let it stand at this stage. she’s not meant to be good anyway

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Aestae’s disruptor pistol shorts out! It seems the wear of the previous fight was too much for poor weapon that barely saw much use. Aestae will have to either do a quick battery change, or find another weapon (unless she has second spare weapon).

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> 2 klingons on the “correct” side of the barricade open fire at B’Atar. Their fire is scarily precise and B’Atar’s personal shields are burned out with couple of shots!

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Klingon of the wrong side of the barricade jumps at Egzo, and both of them end up on the floor struggling!

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Klingon women finishes typing, and takes out two disruptor pistols. Klingons behind her keep working on the bomb.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- ROUND 2 –

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- B’atar’s action –

B’Atar@anncaris growls and taps on her wrist interface, replicating a shield.

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 32 (1-100)

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Round shield appears in B’Atar’s left hand, covering most of her body.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Egzo’s action –

Egzo@HF_Mud wrestles with his foe, tossing his disruptor aside and slashing or stabbing at any weak points with his arm blades.

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

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Strange klingon finds us why it’s not smart to grapple a nausicaan with bladed armor. After a short toss-up, klingon lies dying from multiple deep cuts at critical body locations, and Egzo is free to grab his weapon back

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action -

B’Atar@anncaris hands her bayonetted rifle to Aestae, “Here, take this. It’s pulsewave, not the longest range, but anything within a few short metres is gone for good,”

Aestae Vali@crystyl throws her busted weapon at the Klingons in frustration and ducks into cover, scanning from her wristcomp for a better way to end this before retrieving her backup pistol.

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 45 (1-100)

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Poor pistol bounces off the makeshift barricade.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Tricorder scan shows some weak spots. One of the boxes used as barricade contains flammable engine oil. Large lighting system above the center of the room is tethered by a single but durable cable.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-. One of the pipes behind the barricade is under high pressure, pumping the coolant for the fusion reactor.

Aestae Vali@crystyl would inform the others of these advantages.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Two klingons on the barricade are confused with the sudden shield, but they shrug and fire at it, expecting their weapons will easily breach it. Unfortunately, the shield is made of diburnium alloy, making it especially efficient in defending from disruptor weaponry. Shield absorbs otherwise killing shots, but it’s only a matter of time before it starts breaking under damage.

Egzo@HF_Mud picks up his weapon, grumbling, “Great, but how ‘bout stoppin’ those two before they kill us all?”

Egzo@HF_Mud is looking at the ones working on the torpedo

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Klingon woman takes some potshots at Egzo, which fly close over his head.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:Demo klingon: Just a couple more seconds

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- ROUND 3 –

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- B’atar’s action –

B’Atar@anncaris draws her pistol, using the shield for cover as she aims for the flammable box.

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 48 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Wow so many middling rolls

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:I do not want to reroll because it can just as easily be worse hehe

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:48 it is.

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Also B’Atar right now is totally: https://static3.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Captain-America-Pistol.jpg

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> B’Atar’s shots breach and ignite the oil, and the box explodes, spraying the burning oil everywhere.

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:egzo and b’atar, dodge rolls plo

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 62 (1-100)

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 42 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Grr why is it always in the middle?

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:At least it’s not low

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:but I don’t even have an excuse to reroll hehe

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Egzo deftly rolls to the side and evades a spray of burning oil. B’Atar is forced to use and then discard her shield as it’s front is fully covered in flame.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Klingon that was closer to the oil box is a living torch, while the other dodges the burning oil.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Egzo’s action –

Egzo@HF_Mud charges and vaults what’s left of the flaming barricade, firing point-blank at the Klingon who managed to avoid the oil.

[Emotes]Egzo@HF_Mud:rolls 62 (1-100)

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Egzo’s close blast blows the klingon off his feet and kills him on the spot.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action -

Aestae Vali@crystyl draws her backup pistol and resumes giving cover fire.

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 40 (1-100)

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Aestae’s shot hits the burning klingon, who staggers and drops his rifle.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Burning klingon charges at B’Atar, trying to grapple her! But being burned alive creates issues for your eyesight, and he trips on the stairs and falls head first right in front of B’Atar.

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:give 'im a warrior’s death.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Klingon female fires at Egzo, scoring nasty shots that burn out his personal shields and clip one of his armor blades.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> One of the demo klingons rises up and draws his pistol, moving between the bomb the klingon woman as another “layer” of defense.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Second demo klingon curses as they keep working on the bomb, removing a part from it.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- ROUND 4 –

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- B’atar’s action –

B’Atar@anncaris draws her rifle again to follow Egzo’s charge when the burning Klingon runs at her. She jabs the bayonet of his rifle at him, giving him the honour of dying to a blade

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Should I roll for that?

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> B’Atar’s bayonet finishes of the burning klingon, but delays her to make another attack.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Egzo’s action –

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:can I duck past the woman and focus on the bomb defender?

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:you can, but you are opening yourself to her attack

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:up to you


Egzo@HF_Mud ignores the woman for now, intent on Stopping That Bomb. He fires off another blast at the demo man who’s just interposed himself.

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

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Egzo rushes forward for a better shot and fires at the 1st demo klingon. The shot kicks him up and he lands directly on the second demo klingon, pushing him away from the bomb, at least for a couple of seconds.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action –

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:ah, nice bonus.

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:for that, you had to move closer so you are at klingon woman’s point blan


[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:and yes, that was the intended action.

Aestae Vali@crystyl rushes in after Egzo, sliding feet first through the Klingon woman to position herself to try and disarm the bomb.

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 19 (1-100)

[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:sigh

[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:reroll time then

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 54 (1-100)

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Aestae moves with Egzo, and just slides in towards the bomb. She’s there, and will have chance to deal with it next round.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Klingon woman jumps back behind the console and fires at Egzo! Body armor can block only so much, and the force of the bolts drops him down on the floor, bleeding from the two nasty wounds, but still alive.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Second demo klingon pushes the dead body of his comrade away and moves back to the bomb, only to be greeted by Aestae’s grinning face.

Egzo@HF_Mud falls forward onto the deck, face down, and lies still.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- ROUND 5 –

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- B’Atar’s action –

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:my action for this round: bleeding out. :(

[Tell]Doff’Baba@gulrema:you are still conscious, though all actions have penalties


[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Hmm…just the second demo Klingon and the Klingon woman left right?


B’Atar@anncaris charges in after everyone else, opening fire with her pulsewave at the Klingon woman.

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 20 (1-100)

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Might as well reroll…

[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:not the worst but not good either

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 94 (1-100)


[Team]B’Atar@anncaris:Finally not a middling roll hehe

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> B’Atar, seeing Egzo downed, charges at the klingon woman in fury, practically stabbing her with her rifle as she pulls the trigger. Blast almost bisects the surprised enemy, leaving a large hole in her torso as she slumps to the ground.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- Aestae’s action –

Aestae Vali@crystyl works to disarm the bomb.

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

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Aestae shoots the poor demo klingon in the head, point blank, and in the expert manner presses something on the bomb, stopping the countdown at 0:07 seconds.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Rooms falls silent, except for the sounds of the burning oil and Egzo groan- complaining.

Egzo@HF_Mud curses with /feeling/ into the silence, following it up with a weaker, “medic…”

B’Atar@anncaris rushes over to check on Egzo, looking to Aestae as she does, “Got the bomb?”

Aestae Vali@crystyl looks back with a smug grin, revealing the frozen countdown timer, “Of course!”

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:medicine roll whoever is trying to patch egzo

[Emotes]B’Atar@anncaris:rolls 58 (1-100)

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“careful, careful! auughh… guh.”

B’Atar@anncaris tries to stabilize Egzo as best as she can with her basic Klingon Academy field aid training while a proper medic gets here.

[Local]Egzo@HF_Mud:“tell me y’got that b– ow!”

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> A hypo, some fiddling with spiky armor and couple of dermal patches later, and Egzo is armor-less, but stable.

Egzo@HF_Mud sighs as the pain recedes.

[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“I got her. Practically blew her in half.”


[Local]B’Atar@anncaris:“There. I’m no medic but that should help till you get into a proper sickbay.”

Aestae Vali@crystyl meanwhile, heads to the computer they were fiddling with to try and halt the data wipe.

Egzo@HF_Mud nods, groaning his thanks.

[Emotes]Aestae Vali@crystyl:rolls 6 (1-100)

[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:oh well

[Team]Doff’Baba@gulrema:you have a reroll?

[Team]Aestae Vali@crystyl:used before

[Team]Egzo@HF_Mud:Just not your day, but you came through when it counted, with the disarm :)

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:<FX> Unfortunately she’s too late, either there were not much data, or now dead woman’s programs were top notch.

[Local]Doff’Baba@gulrema:-- SCENE END –
