BKOW!

Another loud gun shot is heard, but no bullet was seen penetrating The Fish Tank.

Aaron rolls out of bed shaking his head to clear the residual sleep. "Bloody Americans and their guns." He moves toward the sounds of the gunshots, looking for a way to see what is going on outside. "Can anyone see what's going on?"

"I'll try to look out the window." Annabelle said as she moved to the wall area beside the window, then reached over and used her fingers to crack the blinds to try to get a look.

Lance rolls upright and then crouches to position himself to the side of the door to cover any sudden intrusions with his taser. "Sound like some one started a party without me."

Annabelle can see nothing from her vantage point looking out the window.

Another minute passes.

BKOW!

Another gun shot. It didn't penetrate The Fish Tank, but it's nearby.

After Buffybot powered backup and hears the commotion. She shook her head about Aaron's crack about guns. But shrugs it off. "If someone did Lance crashing that party may not be the best idea. Still it can be a trap to give away our location. I'd suggest that we sneak out the back entrance and circle around to see if they're any better vantage points."

"That...............is actually a good plan I think.  The shooting may be at an innocent bystander who wandering into Sunnydale.  If so, it behooves us to help them. If there's an enemy out there, it isn't a vampire.  The sun hasn't set yet." 

Annabelle heads towards the back entrance.  "Who else is coming?"

Part of Buffybot wanted to remain with Mike BUT.....since it was her idea she'll join Annabelle. "I'm coming. I need to see if this is really a false alarm or if it is real then we should get prepared."

Re: Episode 2-10
Moments later, Annabelle, Aaron, and Buffybot sneak out the back entrance to The Fish Tank.

They make their way past several buildings while remaining at the back of each building and out of sight.


BKOW!

Another shot rings out.  The sound indicates it's coming from the other side of where they are now.
The threesome sneak around the corner then venture out into the street (they're now a safe distance away from The Fish Tank so no one will readily guess that's your hideout).

No sign of anyone, then...........on a two story building on the other side of the street, five figures spring up from hiding on the rooftop.  Luckily the trio were facing that way when they appeared.

All five are wearing black clothes and full headed masks, so you can't be sure if they're human or not.  And all five are holding rifles.  And they are taking aim at you.

OCC: Combat thread time for you three.  Good eyes have initiative, but the bad guys are on a roof two stories up while you three are on the street, so only ranged attacks can be made.

Re: Episode 2-10

"Oh crumbs." Annabelle said as she saw the row of guns pointing in their direction.

She dashed forward, focusing on not getting shot, as she ran towards the same building the shooters are on top of.

"You took the words out of my mouth..."She already planned to follow Annabelle's lead and attempts to get to the building as well.

"What is it with this town?" Aaron ducks towards the side and looses a pair of snap shots at the vague forms overhead.  Both arrows take flight right past the shooters on the roof. Not Aaron's best shots, but the guys on the roof aren't statues either.

BKOW! BKOW! BKOW! BKOW!  Four bullets hit the pavement, all in the vicinity of Buffybot.

BKOW!  The fifth bullet hits her square in the chest.  The shooters were all aiming at her, apparently having no interest in the Slayer or the watcher.

Annnabelle finds the door unlocked when they reach the builidng and the trio make it inside and out of the line of fire.

Meanwhile, back at The Fish Tank

Mike and Lance hear the back door open. Can the other three be back already?

No.  Two shiny yellow demons walk in.  Miquot clan demons, the same kind you said were attacking you to lead the vamp cops into an ambush.  Well, now you've got two to fight for real.  One advances towards Mike, the other to Lance.



OCC: Buffybot takes 21 points of damage. All three of you are safely inside the building.  You can either a) wait where you are and see if the bad guys come to you or b)rush up the stairs and get to the roof to engage the villains.  If you do this one, the bad guys will have initiative since they will be in ambush position. Mike and Lance have initiative at The Fish Tank fight.

Re: Episode 2-10
At The Fish Tank

"Well look what the cat dragged in." Lance turns to the demon coming at him. "Zipity doo da!" he says as he lets the taser shot fly.

The taser nails the demon in the chest, but he still keeps coming and swings his hand in a karate chop motion, knocking the taser rifle out of Lance's hand and across the room out of his reach.


Mike was thoroughly unimpressed with these opponents...so he did his famous grab and toss maneuver, as he sends this guy flying. His angle of throw is particularly good, and this poor bastard hits the ceiling very hard before his inevitable date with gravity kicks in as he crashes to the floor...hard.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  No damage to the heroes this round although Lance has been deprived of his taser rifle for the rest of the fight (it's on the other side of the room underneath a table where he can't retrieve it with this demon still coming at him). He can still pull out any other weapon he has on him. Mike's enemy is currently on the floor.

Re: Episode 2-10
Down the street:

Annabelle, Aaron, and Buffy find themselves in a building that's been abandoned for some time.  Nothing but a few broken pieces of furniture there, looks like there was a business here sometime ago.   Lots of dirt and dust around.

There's a stairway that leads upstairs and to the roof, but the threesome isn't moving.  They wait for the villains to come to them first.

Three minutes pass.

Then....BOOM!  The door at the top of the stairs bursts open.  You see three of the five attackers you saw on the roof, three figures with rifles, wearing black and ski-masks.  One leaps to the bottom of the stairs, while the other two vault over each side.

They are now on the floor and facing you, ready for action.  Unlike on  the roof, each of the three point their at one of the three of you.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  Three enemies, each one is pointing a rifle at each of you.  You're close enough to them to attack.  Heroes have initiative.

Re: Episode 2-10
Annabelle rushed up to meet the figure pointing his/her/its rifle in her direction as she landed a kick to the mid-section followed by a bulleye kick that knocked the rifle out of her attacker's hand.  He enemy let out a grunt of pain as the Slayer connected, a very human sounding grunt.


Riskily taking a moment to aim Aaron sends two shafts towards the one aiming a gun at him. The attacker fires off a shot from his rifle that Aaron barely dodges, the bullet skims past his mid-secton leaving a small mark on the side of his shirt.

The watcher's arrows then slam into the chest of the enemy who drops on his back, screaming in pain (human screams). Then he makes a peculiar bite motion with his mouth, then his head hits the floor, apparently unconcious.


"Let's hope this works...."Buffybot attempts to close ranks with the attacker facing her. She hurls a punch her attacker dodges, then BKOW!...another shot and Buffybot takes another hit from a rifle bullet.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  Buffybot takes 21 points of damage.  Aaron's enemy is on the floor with two arrows in him, not moving at all.

Re: Episode 2-10
Abandoned building:

Aaron frowns as the man drops to the floor before him. Human? He moves forwards trying to confirm his thoughts, and checking for signs of life when he reaches the man.

The watcher sees no signs of life and finds no pulse.  He pulls the ski mask off confirming the adversary is human.  And foaming at the mouth.  Aaron had never seen it it person, but it was covered in his watcher training: cyanide capsule.  This guy preferred death to capture.

Annabelle moved in on her opponent, scoring a takedown, followed by a kick to the face of her now downed opponent.  The noises of pain he made seemed to indicate he was human, if so she'd best not use lethal force until she was certain.

Something's not right...While Buffybot took some damage she was more than ready to dish it out. She attempts a kick on her attacker....and nails him in the gut as he lets out a human sounding grunt of pain as he tries to shoot her again, but this time misses.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  Two enemies left, the one Aaron is inspecting is definitely dead.

Re: Episode 2-10
Mike has a good hold on this enemy, but he's not snapping his neck in quite the right way. He tries two necksnapping attempts in a row, but the shiny yellow demon resists his neck being snapped.



With no taser rifle, Lance pulled out his large knife he acquired at the sporting goods store and slashed out at the demon's midsection. But the Miquot demon deftly dodges the former Initiative agent's attack and then nails Lance with a punch to the face.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  Lance takes 6 points of damage.  Mike still has his demon grappled by the neck.

Re: Episode 2-10
At The Fish Tank

Mike doesn't like necks anymore.

With 3 tries in a row, he's hopeful his enemy will run out of resistance to this due to the rapid succession. And even if not, he's getting better at it! But the demon seemingly wills his neck to not move, resisting Mike's twist attempts.




Lance takes the punch and realizes it stings a bit more than he expected. With a grunt he slices his knife towards the demon once again and this time slashes through the demon's mid-section, spraying demon blood on the floor. The miquot demon screams as he aims a kick at Lance that misses.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  No damage to the good guys.  Still one demon up and engaging Lance, one on the ground thwarting Mike's attempts to tear his head off.

Re: Episode 2-10
Abandoned building

Attempting to subdue her enemy without killing him, Annabelle smashes two knockout punches to the face of her downed enemy. WHAM! WHAM!  But he remains awake, then his eyes glass over as his head hits the floor hard as foam emits from his mouth, just like the guy Aaron just examined.

Norms......interesting change. So it is more than apparent that these hostile are simply normal humans. Once again she attempts another kick and misses again.

Aaron holds back letting the two 'slayers' deal with their adversaries. Instead he covers the stairs down from the roof in case anyone else decides to join them. The watcher remains vigilant, but no other enemies appear.

The remaining adversary makes no move to attack Buffybot, he pulls something off of his belt and calmly says:  "Now we die." as he drops the object to the floor.

A grenade.

There is an overturned table in the nearly empty room that could be used as cover. If it's strong enough.  Or you could run as fast as you can either up the stairs or out the front door and hope you get far enough away.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  You can either dive for the table with an acrobatics plus dexterity roll or make a dexterity doubled roll to see if you can run far enough away.

Re: Episode 2-10
At The Fish Tank

Lance continues to engage one Miquot demon with his big knife.

As for the other one; If at first you don't succeed, try try again! Gruesome business, but Mike had CONFIDENCE!

The demon's neck finally twists.  CRACK! And again.  CRACK! And again.  CRACK! The final twist ends with a squishy sound as the demon is now definitely dead, leaving Mike to join in with Lance and double team the last one.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  One demon left that Lance and Mike can double team.

Re: Episode 2-10

"Uh...sorry.....not in the cards..."Buffybot explodes into a full run in an attempt to make a hasty retreat! She dashes out the door and into the street.


"Oh crumbs. Aaron, look out!" the Slayer shouts as she grabs the watcher by the waist and dives behind the table, landing with her back to the table so any of the grenade blast that penetrates will hit her first and not Aaron.

BOOM!

The grenade goes off.  The table withstands most of the blast, but not all of it. The Slayer took some of the damage, but successfully protected the watcher from harm.

Buffybot was safely out of range of the grenade blast, but would now be an easy target for the two remaining guys on the roof.  If they were still there.  No sign of the remaining two, or any other adversaries on the roof.

The remaining enemy inside who dropped the grenade is definitely dead (and his body is a mess).

OCC: Annabelle takes 10 points of damage from the blast, everyone else is okay.  Back to the episode thread, this battle's over.

Re: Episode 2-10
The Fish Tank

Has anyone mentioned tossing things that go bump in the night to the Olympics committee as a new sport?

Someone really should.

Gold medalist and reigning world champion Mike Smith will demonstrate this for the audience as he grabs the demon and hurls him across the room.  The demon lands with a THUD on the Fish Tank floor.


After hitting the demon with a nice slice to the mid section Lance saw Mike approaching. "Go ahead finish this bad boy off!" He makes a move toward getting back the taser in case more are to come in after this one. "Gotta get my lightning back."

With Mike keeping the demon occupied, Lance recovers his taser rifle from where it landed under a table on the other side of the room.

OCC: Back to the combat thread.  One demon left on the floor, Lance has his taser rifle again.
