Opening Scene - Roughstrike
The Cybertronian landscape had been chewed up by decades of near constant battles. This battlefield was covered with craters and hollowed out vehicles. If one looked close, they would see parts that had be lost through violence. A yellow and green helicopter zips in to land at a battlement that has been set up for defense. Springer, one of the founding members of the Wreckers lands in his feet as he transformers to his robot mode.

Roughstrike knew that the triple changer had been coming as he'd already transmitted his security code almost an hour ago. Why it had taken so long for him to arrive, was anyone's guess, but the Autobot had a flare for the dramatic. The bot's feet clomp on the uneven ground as he moves towards the defender's position."Hey kid!," He calls out, "Got a job for ya."

Opening Scene - Roughstrike
Roughstrike had been motionless for the entire hour.  It was common kmowledge that he usually had two modes, stop and fast.  So, when he moved from the rubble, few would have seen his spot.  He transformed, standing about as tall as Ratchet, but a bit bulkier.  His shinning silver and black form possessed of a few streaks of orange.  The large laser cannon fixed to his left arm a dominant feature of his form, as was the faint dark blue light from the back of his right hand, where an energy sword would spring to life at his thought.  "What have you got Springer?"  He asked, his voice carefully paced to be clear and concise.

"We've got some intel that there's some Cons making a move a few clicks from here. You interested in checking it out and seeing what they're up?"

"Sure.  What info you got?"  He responds, his eyes brightening with the possibility of getting some 'Cons.

"I'll fill you in on the way," with that he transforms into his armor vehicle form and rolls over the blaster terrain and into the battlefield. While he's no where near as fast as Roughstrike was, he was nevertheless built for off-roading.

"We picked up some chatter that Straxis had some of his drones testing the boarders of the neutral zone in search of a possible Minicon. We're going to," he pauses to indicate his hope for the opposite, "gently remind them where they shouldn't be and save the possible Minicon. It could be nothing, but we just can't take the chance"

Roughstrike transforms with Springer, easily keeping pace with the bot.  "I can be very.... Persuasive."  He replied, his vocal capacitors crackling with the less-than-subtle suggestion of the retractable cannon housed within his vehicle mode.  The large puncture-proof tires easily grinding over the rough terrain.  "Anything else I should expect?"  He asked, as he started scanning the area with his surveillance equipment.

"What more to you need to know kid?" Springer says with a chuckle in his voice, "There are Cons that need a good head bashin'. Why, you scared?" This time the chuckle is a full laugh as he moves faster across the broken ground.

Go ahead and give me a Communications roll to see if you can pick up anything.

Roughstrike easily kept up with Springer, his sensors scanning through the channels.  He laughs briefly at Springer's joke.  "That can be arranged."  He said.  The rough terrain not causing any difficulty for the tough Bot.



18:58, Today: Roughstrike rolled 2 using 1d10 with rolls of 2.  Communications.

Putting on the brakes, Springer leaps and changes to his tonight form just before a large hunk of metal. "We're getting close to where the signal came from kid. This is where you come in. " Pressing in on the barrier, he looks around the corner, his twin barreled rifle at the ready, "Go up there," he points to a short ridge with a section that turns into a cliff, "and see if you can spot the drones from there. I'll wait for you here."

Whatever Springer says was detected, Roughstrike just can't seem to tune into. Maybe the Cons have gotten quiet, or they're gone already. Either way, nothing is showing up on his sensors.

Roughstrike rolls out, moving from cover to cover.  But there is precious little of that here, so he floors it up the remaining distance to the cliff to the position Springer indicated.  The bluff granting a panoramic view of the area.  He searches all around, his sensors set to maximum sensitivity.  But whatever it is that keeps him from picking up the signal Springer does, it's a solid block to him.  Still, he looks around, hoping to see whatever might be in the area.

Even given the vantage point, Roughstrike doesn't pick up. . . No wait! There about 600 meters away.

A pair of two wheeled drones are digging over by a half destroyed building. A quick pull on the record's reveal that it was a warehouse at one point before the area was abandoned and then cordoned off.

Springer's voice crackles on their com, "You see anything kid?"

The die roller hates is all equally. Lol.

For Straxis's drones, I've chosen to steal their look from Beast Machines' Vehicons.

Roughstrike quickles relates the coordinates to Springer.  There's a couple of drones by the warehouse.  They seem occupied by digging.  Surprise should give us an advantage."  So saying, he begins to move towards the drones, taking every advantage to conceal himself.


06:52, Today: Roughstrike rolled 8 using 1d10 with rolls of 8.  Espionage.

Roughstrike moves closer to the drones. It's odd that they aren't transmitting, but that is quickly answered by the probability that they just didn't want to be detected. The tank backtracks to avoid having to climb down the rough side and possibly falling. Moving closer, the Autobot gets within a few dozen meters before the noise happens. Was it something he'd hit or had Springer followed and been there one to make the noise. Whichever the answer was, there was no time to find out as the drones turn and look directly at the scout.

And we have our first failure of the game.

Let's roll 1d10 to see who goes first. You can roll for Springer as well. The higher the number the better on this one.

19:39, Today: The All Spark rolled 11 using 2d10 with rolls of 10,1.  Init Drone 1&2.

Roughstrike roared over the ground, speeding up, and attempting to target ine of the drones.  Unfortunately, the alarm, whoever tripped it, had given the drones plenty of advance warning.

04:41, Today: Roughstrike rolled 7 using 2d10 with rolls of 4,3.  Springer & Roughstrike initiative.

One of the Vehicons seemed to be ready as it pulls his arm cannon is quickly and fires at the only Autobot it sees.

08:59, Today: The All Spark rolled 5,6 using D10,d6 with rolls of 5,6.  Vehicon 1 Firepower(5)/Dmg. He has scored a hit.

Now, roll your Endurance with any additional defense dice you might have to avoid the damage. Since he rolled his stat number exactly, if you roll a 5 he will still hit you. Then roll your attack to which I'll put the results in my next post.

I'll allow you to roll for Springer, but he's got a full turn before he arrives.

The shot deflects harmlessly off of Roughstrikes armor.  His laser cannon emerges from within his cockpit on its' automated pintel mount and extends to its' full length.  Swiveling, it aims at the firing vehicon and a beem if dark blue light lances out to strike the small bot'.


11:56, Today: Roughstrike rolled 15 using 2d10 with rolls of 9,6.  Endurance (Defence):8.  +3 to damage resisted.

The one shooting at Roughstrike easily avoids the attack while the slower of the two takes it full on it's chest. The one who had been digging, and subsequently shot for it's efforts, pulls up it's arm and fires back.

Don't forget to keep track of your Energon usage. Sorry this took so long, but the rules aren't exactly clear. I'm trying to think of a better way to do this.

16:33, Today: The All Spark rolled 11 using 2d10 with rolls of 10,1.  Defense (5).

16:35, Today: The All Spark rolled 5 using 1d10 with rolls of 5. Accuracy (5) Another exact roll.

16:56, Today: The All Spark rolled 4 using 1d6 with rolls of 4.  Potential DMG.



New round:

Now that it's fellow has gotten it's head out of the dirt, literally, it begins to move away, calling out over it's internal communications.

You can try to jam him if you have the skill to.

17:06, Today: The All Spark rolled 1 using 1d10 with rolls of 1.  Communications 4.

Oo, that might not work.

Roughstrike gets hit by the blast, but it diesn't seem to much effect him.  His turrent turns and fires at the Vehicon, even as he reahes out to jam all signals that aren't his and Springers.

The die roller really doesn't like you. Lol

Throwing up his jammer to stop the vehicon is just too late as it transmits a teleportation code. The two of them then are pulled out of the blast zone and somewhere else, most likely the Decepticon city Polyhex. Just then Springer flies in his twin barreled cannon, searching for a target, "Where'd they go kid? You scrap then that quick?"

"They were digging over there, then they teleported out."  He responds.  He promptly heads to where the Vehicons were digging and searches the area.

Looking over at where they were digging, Roughstrike sees a body. A small body that doesn't conform to any cybertronian life he's ever seen. "Woah kid. What is that?" You both look dumbfounded at the tiny body. "We've got to get this to Preceptor. Optimus is looking for help and I think you're ready for the field."

End of scene.
