Chinilaya - Electrostatic Cannon

Wikipedia:
Upon detonation, a near-ground airburst of a 1-kiloton neutron bomb would produce a large blast wave and a powerful pulse of both thermal radiation and ionizing radiation in the form of fast (14.1 MeV) neutrons. The thermal pulse would cause third degree burns to unprotected skin out to approximately 500 meters. The blast would create pressures of at least 4.6 psi (32 kPa) out to a radius of 600 meters, which would severely damage all non-reinforced concrete structures. At the conventional effective combat range against modern main battle tanks and armored personnel carriers (< 690–900 m), the blast from a 1 kt neutron bomb would destroy or damage to the point of nonusability almost all un-reinforced civilian buildings.[citation needed]

Using neutron bombs to stop an enemy armored attack by rapidly incapacitating crews with a dose of 80+ Gy of radiation[44] would require exploding large numbers of them to blanket the enemy forces, destroying all normal civilian buildings within c. 600 meters of the immediate area.[44][45] Neutron activation from the explosions could make many building materials in the city radioactive, such as galvanized steel (see area denial use below).

Because liquid-filled objects like the human body are resistant to gross overpressure, the 4–5 psi (28-34 kPa) blast overpressure would cause very few direct casualties at a range of c. 600 m. The powerful winds produced by this overpressure, however, could throw bodies into objects or throw debris at high velocity, including window glass, both with potentially lethal results. Casualties would be highly variable depending on surroundings, including potential building collapses.[46]

The pulse of neutron radiation would cause immediate and permanent incapacitation to unprotected outdoor humans in the open out to 900 meters,[9] with death occurring in one or two days. The median lethal dose (LD50) of 6 Gray would extend to between 1350 and 1400 meters for those unprotected and outdoors,[44] where approximately half of those exposed would die of radiation sickness after several weeks.

A human residing within, or simply shielded by, at least one concrete building with walls and ceilings 30 cm (12 in) thick, or alternatively of damp soil 24 inches (60 cm) thick, would receive a neutron radiation exposure reduced by a factor of 10.[47][48] Even near ground zero, basement sheltering or buildings with similar radiation shielding characteristics would drastically reduce the radiation dose.[4]

Furthermore, the neutron absorption spectrum of air is disputed by some authorities, and depends in part on absorption by hydrogen from water vapor. Thus, absorption might vary exponentially with humidity, making neutron bombs far more deadly in desert climates than in humid ones.[44]

Exerting strength born of desperation, Captain Justice wraps his arms and legs around the bomb and crushes the carbon fiber casing as he compacts the bomb and folds his body around it. The expected explosion doesn't have much concussive force, the bomb is designed to take out aircraft by killing the crew with a neutron bombardment. It is a bomb, and does manage to thump when it goes off. Miraculously, Captain Justice had blocked almost all the bomb's energy!
Hanging in the air, Captain Justice begins to glow. The neutron radiation must have been interacting with whatever made him Captain Justice to begin with.
As Captain Justice seems to glow brighter with each passing second, he starts to accelerate skyward. As he flies into the sky, he glows brighter and brighter. From the ground, the brightly glowing man started to fly away, and as the distance between Captain Justice and the ground increased at an accelerating rate he seemed to glow brighter for a bit. Captain Justice was gone.

In reply to SSOGM (msg # 38):

Psi-Bird soared after Captain Justice... but was soon left behind though she tried until the curve of the earth below was visible and all that remained of the Captain was the glimmering stars above...

Then a GREAT SADNESS Descended upon her heart... {"GOD SPEED HERO...! You will not be forgotten Arnold... nor unmourned!"}

She could not withstand the sorrow she felt and returned to her body...

Chinilaya - Electrostatic Cannon

It was the shadows deepening as something in the sky began to glow brighter than the sun.  CMZ turns his gaze upwards, knowing that glow for what it is.  He had himself been at the center of such a glow not long ago.  He knows the glow is not Runa's wings.
The explosion seems to propel the hero clutching the bomb upwards, as though the concussion were escaping his grasp from only one direction.  As the ball of fire seems to be approaching escape velocity, CMZ turns back to Magnum.  Not once has the mutant ever called his foe by his full codename, Mr Magnum.  Not once.  Not now.  Not ever.  In fact, CMZ is beyond speech right now.
The sound that escapes his throat is a culmination of rage and grief at the death of a comrade he has known for too short a time.  One he had yet to spend time speaking with.  One he had yet to get to know.  But, the bellowing roar that escapes is accompanied by a burst of movement, as CMZ takes to the trees to go after Magnum.  His eyes crazed, his mouth seeming unhinged to grotesque proportion, the surprising length of his sharp canines revealed.  This does not seem like the normal Chimp Man Z, who likes to keep his fights light, more like a show, with periodic insults and quips.
No.  This Chimp Man Z appears ready to rip, to rend, to smash his target into oblivion.  And that target is Magnum.

Mr. Magnum exhibits abilities no one had seen before. As Chimp Man Z approached, the soldier ran rings around him and taunted,
"c'mon, ape! You can't touch me. I'm the ultimate combination of Uncle Sam's technological prowess and the heart of a warrior. I'm fast enough and strong enough to run up to a Ferrarri at its top speed and flip it over."
Proving his boast, Mr. Magnum runs out of the reach of Chimp Man Z's tail at around 300 mph, and grabs the two technicians at the cannon. Then he runs towards the ocean and shouts "WHY DIDN'T YOU STOP THEM?!" before he lets go of the two technicians. The hapless technicians, discovering they were truly cannon fodder, fly through the air the last fifty feet before bouncing across the water a bit and then sinking.

COWARD!  The single word comes out in a roar.  CMZ then turns and heads to the ocean to dive in after the techs.  However, he does not take into account his new mass and begins to drown instead of swim.
He starts to panic, but he finally gets his head straight and starts swimming powerfully towards the men, after breaking the surface and coughing out water.

12:59, Today: Chimp Man Z rolled 53 using 1d100 with rolls of 53.  Swimming at 70% recover.

12:59, Today: Chimp Man Z rolled 99 using 1d100 with rolls of 99.  Swimming at 70% recover.

12:58, Today: Chimp Man Z rolled 93 using 1d100 with rolls of 93.  Swimming at 70%.

Colonel Flagg watches Chimp Man Z go after the technicians and says, "Ok. Let's give him some time, squad. Big guns and hit Harris, nhb."

Colonel Flagg and his mercinaries pull odd-looking rifles from their packs. One of the men grumbles something about gungnir as the men prepare their weapons.
Mr. Magnum turns to shoot at the men that are running away, and raises his energy pistols. Then he notes the five mercenaries preparing to fire; Mr. Magnum looks back at the soldiers and grins.

Chimp Man Z reaches the hapless technicians in less than ten seconds. The technicians, already fighting for their lives, make it to the surface as Chimp Man Z arrives at them. As he grabs the technicians, their eyes widen and they both dive back under the water.  As they do so, Major Harris fires his energy pistols. The beams strike the water on either side of Chimp Man Z, boiling the water almost instantly and surrounding Chimp Man Z in a cloud of thick steam.
The merc squad, armed with some sort of bull pup configuration .50 caliber rifle, chooses that time to fire on Major Harris. His force field flares, and a blinking blue led shows on Major Harris's belt. He sneers and turns to fire on the mercenaries, dual wielding his pistols he fires four shots and each mercenary is hit directly in the chest. All four of the mercs frantically pound their body armor to put out the flames, two of them curse loudly.

Colonel Flagg had moved off to one side, probably to get a better angle, and fires. He fires the rocket propelled grenade and it slams into Mr. Magnum's force field. Under his breath, he says, "get 'im, Zee"

Mr. Magnum staggers back and the led on his belt changes from blue to red as he turns towards Colonel Flagg. Old man! You wanna rock-n-roll with me?"

Colonel Flagg was a West Pointer that had since been involved with almost every substantial operation the army had executed. His abilities to improvise tactics and utilize found assets was almost unparalleled. This time, that involved his men and himself firing on Mr. Magnum before running to Chimp Man Z. Noting Magnum's speed, the Colonel separated himself from his men to give them more time to reach Z. The Colonel's men took second shots at Mr. Magnum as they ran, but their aim was truly off. The shots captured Magnum's attention and in those few moments Flagg dove away from Magnum and put himself as close to Z as possible. Magnum, enraged, caught up with the Colonel and engaged him han to hand. It took seconds before Magnum had laid out Colonel Flagg.
With a sneer, Magnum said,"I'll shoot you later" before he turned to chase after Flagg's men.

Enraged, CMZ rips a small tree from the ground nearby and throws it, full force, like a spear, and Magnum's back.

The sapling flies at the back of Mr. Magnum's head. The rootball smacks into his head, and the sapling begins to tumble as it flew past Magnum to land some twenty feet away. Mr. Magnum turns to Chimp Man Z and starts towards him. Flagg's mercenaries scatter and circle around Magnum to get to Flagg.
Magnum stands in front of Chimp Man Z and suddenly gets a puzzled look on his face. After clapping a hand to the back of his head and looking at the blood on it, he roars in anger and rushes to attack.

OOC: I rolled a one, so it was only 32 points of damage. Chimp Man Z is permitted to re-roll. The 160 pound sapling does 1D6X10 + 6 points and it will be doubled (critical).
I'll also need initiative from Chimp Man Z. Mr. Magnum has 24 initiative.

CMZ squats down into the deep-kneed stance of his martial art style, seeming to ignore Magnum's attempts to hurt him.  As soon as there is a lull, he suddenly stands, swinging his fist upwards at Magnum's chin in an attempt to deliver a devastating haymaker.  This is followed by another attempt at a devastating two-fisted, overhand strike intended to hammer the mercenary into the ground.

I forget the damages from his strength.  If they even hit....
16:34, Today: Chimp Man Z rolled 9 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 6.  Power Punch-Double fisted overhand strike.

16:34, Today: Chimp Man Z rolled 9 using 1d20+3 with rolls of 6.  Power Punch-Haymaker.

Mr. Magnum uses his left hand to throw a quick jab at Chimp Man Z before spinning his hips and whipping his right foot around to smack the hero with his heel, almost as part of the follow up to the kick his open right hand strikes Chimp Man Z with the blade of the hand, this is followed by his left foot flying through an arc that passes completely over Chimp Man Z's head. This was the mistake Chimp Man Z had awaited. The hero swung his arm in a full circle to land a haymaker on Mr. Magnum. Magnum was unable to block or dodge the blow, but the cagey warrior accepted the hit and allowed it to knock him backwards. The super soldier then used his preternatural speed to zoom forward attempting to tackle Chimp Man Z. It's at this point that Magnum's foot tangled in the plant life, causing him to stumble and barely strike the top of Chimp Man Z's head with his shoulder. The former turned out to be the harder of the two and Magnum cursed as he attempted to regain his balance. Chimp Man Z followed Magnum's error with a double overhand blow, both of the heroes hands landing just below Mr. Magnum's kidneys. Magnum again let the blow move him to reduce its effect, this time that meant his left knee bent and his right leg collapsed. The supersoldier tried to get back upright as quickly as possible, and his leg collapsed on him a second time. He lay on the ground, looking up at the completely unharmed  Chimp Man Z.

OOC:
    actions roll to hit,damage
  1. jab (14)20,28
  2. wheel kick (11)17,29
  3. knife hand (5)11,30
  4. crescent kick (1)7,35
  5. body block/tackle (two actions)
  6. body block/tackle (1)7,36
  7. roll with punch 27
  8. roll with punch 19
  9. action lost when forced prone

Chimp Man Z's first haymaker did 158 points of damage, rolling with it permitted Magnum to take only 79, Chimp Man Z's double overhand blow did 178 points of damage, rolling with it permitted Magnum to take only 89, but that was enough to reduce Magnum's SDC to zero and do 20% of his hit points in damage.
Mr. Magnum has used all his actions, and is beaten. If Chimp Man Z has actions left they can be used now, if Chimp Man Z continues to attack in the next round Mr. Magnum has 21 initiative

"Maybe they were right tryin' to stick me behind a desk. You're after Emerson, right?"
"That sonuvabitch said I was transferred, if I got injured it was just repairs and if I got killed I'd wake up in a new model. I should've known he was a liar. He's been lying for decades. First about wanting to help humanity, then about his illness."
"If you catch him, don't destroy his body. He's stuck in this one while he sets up his next backup."

Magnum rolls a bit and sits up. "Let me stand up, then you can finish it. Sure as hell don't want Flagg and his buddies taking me in. Smohk would be worse."
Magnum rolls again, managing to get to his knees. As he pushes himself upright it becomes obvious that one of his legs is almost non-functional. "No. I'm goin down in battle, Valhalla awaits."

As angry as he is, CMZ has no intention of killing this piece of drek, but he fully intends to knock the putz into last year.  However, accidents do happen.
Maintaining his deep knee-bend stance, he drops and rolls forward aggressively.  Using his momentum, he rolls up Magnum's body and over his head,drop kicking at his skull from behind.
He is back on his feet almost before he hits the ground, hoping to finish this with a double-knuckle strike.

<tr><td>Stone Monkey Stance</td><td>+1 Attack, + 4 Strike, +2 Damage, +2 to Roll, NO Dodge or Parry</td></tr>

12:26, Today: Chimp Man Z rolled 15,39 using 1d20+7,1d8+31 with rolls of 8,8.  Double-knuckle strike and damage.

12:23, Today: Chimp Man Z rolled 9,36 using 1d20+7,2d4+31 with rolls of 2,3,2.  Drop Kick strike and damage.

Mr. Magnum, being the warrior he is, continues to react by attempting to absorb the punishment. As Chimp Man Z runs over him he tumbles backward, gasping at the pain in his leg. Chimp Man Z's kick proves one thing, Mr. Magnum could see behind himself as he rolls forward from the the kick. Unfortunately, his already injured leg is further twisted as he tries to rise and face Chimp Man Z. As the double-knuckle blow comes down Mr. Magnum tries to fade backwards but manages only to have the devestating fists of the hero graze down his chest. Even that is enough to knock Magnum backwards to the ground, where he lays unconscious and unmoving.

OOC: 0 HP, and the following effects:
    Injuries
  • Minor bruises and lacerations; -2 on Spd (becomes 33) and -1 to dodge for four days.
  • Damaged leg or hip; Spd is 1/2 (becomes 17) and -2 to dodge for eight days
  • Severely bruised and battered muscles; -18 on Spd (unable to move), -3 to P.P. for four days.
  • Broken pelvis: -4 to P.E., reduce attacks per melee round by half and speed by 80%. Furthermore, the character cannot lift or carry more than 5 lbs. (2.3 kg) without excruciating pain (double penalties due to pain), six week duration.

Colonel Flagg, supported by two of the mercenaries he had with him, says "Thanks, Zee. We'll take it from here."
The soldiers accompanying the colonel move to Mr. Magnum, and begins to prepare him to be moved. Colonel Flagg calls to them, "no painkillers, just a sedative and double the dosage. He can take it."
Turning to Chimp Man Z, Flagg sighs, "I owe you for this one. If I could have been sure anyone else would survive a run in with Major Harris I would've used them."
"You're the real deal, Jacob. I'm not. I'm just an old soldier doing his job. You ever need a favor, don't hesitate."

Flagg limps over to the soldiers working on Magnum.

Since the technicians do not seem to want help, and are not the targets of the raid, CMZ makes a call over the radio, then begins to run towards the barracks. An attending group of dark-faced howlers keep up with him easily as they scamper through the trees. As inspiration strikes and Jacob leaps two stories into the air before bouncing off the trunk of a large tree and flinging himself from branch to branch through the jungle. Then, he left the howler monkeys behind and zoomed towards his compatriots.
