Rainy Days

Aug 28 21:51:32 <E4DGM> The rain's coming down more heavily.
Aug 28 21:51:41 <E4DGM> It's actually getting a little difficult to see.
Aug 28 21:51:42 * Dawny (ten.sndomt.3BCB42FB-CRInys|tibbiM#ten.sndomt.3BCB42FB-CRInys|tibbiM) has joined #afteractionmission
Aug 28 21:52:06 <Waxx> «Remember light discipline. No cigarettes.»
Aug 28 21:52:16 <Dexanote> «Raining, Colonel.»
Aug 28 21:52:31 <Dawny> «You can smoke in the rain»

Aug 28 21:52:37 * ChanServ gives channel operator status to MisterFlames
Aug 28 21:52:46 <Waxx> «We are in a vehicle.»
Aug 28 21:53:12 <Waxx> Dmitri thought that was obvious.
Aug 28 21:54:08 <Dawny> "Sir, he's not exactly bright"
Aug 28 21:55:09 <Maddy> «Closest g-gas station is on Bathurst Street. L-lot 13.»
Aug 28 21:55:17 <E4DGM> The city ahead of them is dark.
Aug 28 21:55:22 * Gerald (~PI.06250957.754EB832.5B4A3365|alliztahc#PI.06250957.754EB832.5B4A3365|alliztahc) has joined #afteractionmission
Aug 28 21:55:26 <Waxx> «Very well, proceed. When we disembark, John and the scarecrow will take point.»
Aug 28 21:55:42 <Maddy> «Bathurst s-should be the first road on our l-left.»
Aug 28 21:55:47 <Waxx> «Mrs. Dodge Ridge and myself will be immediately behind, and our medic will remain in the rear with Misha.»
Aug 28 21:55:58 <Maddy> «Right.»
Aug 28 21:56:02 <Dawny> Kay follows directions! «Yes Sir»
Aug 28 21:56:13 <Dexanote> «I c'n medic too, so ya know.»
Aug 28 21:56:19 <E4DGM> Roll perception
Aug 28 21:56:21 <Waxx> Dmitri just ignores that.

Aug 28 21:58:05 <E4DGM> Midnight notice a yawning gap in the roadway just before they reach the turn. Kay, the driver, does not.
Aug 28 21:58:24 <MisterFlames> "Kay, break. There's a gap in the road."
Aug 28 21:58:38 <MisterFlames> ((Brake, rather))
Aug 28 21:58:39 <Dawny> KAy hits the breaks asw quickly as she can.
Aug 28 21:58:55 <E4DGM> Gimme another perception roll, Kay
Aug 28 21:58:55 <Dawny> brakes, damn you fucking my shit up
Aug 28 21:59:09 <Dawny> 4df+2 damn it
Aug 28 21:59:10 <Quidmore> Dawny: damn it: -1 (4df+2=-, -, 0, -)
Aug 28 22:00:23 <E4DGM> The ridge in the road is a LITTLE to wide for the humvee's tires, and the braking is a day late and a dollar short. The vehicle bucks as the front tires drop into the gap.
Aug 28 22:00:37 <E4DGM> Everyone, defense.
Aug 28 22:00:44 <Dexanote> 4df+3 «FUCK.»
Aug 28 22:00:44 <Quidmore> Dexanote: «FUCK.»: 4 (4df+3=+, 0, 0, 0)

Aug 28 22:02:28 <E4DGM> Everyone manages to avoid injury as the vehicle slams to a halt. Thank God for seatbelts.
Aug 28 22:03:00 <MisterFlames> "Whew." Midnight says.
Aug 28 22:03:33 <Dawny> «This is why I asked» Kay throws it in reverse and tries to back up.
Aug 28 22:03:34 <Maddy> «We'll have to find a way around.
Aug 28 22:04:01 <PaulS_laptop> «Give me a minute and I can get us out of the ditch and past it"
Aug 28 22:04:07 <Dexanote> Shank swings around, grabbing the gun and regaining his grip on the roof. «WATCHIT FUCK.»
Aug 28 22:04:10 <E4DGM> The front tires are quite obviously sunk in the fault, down to the armored frame.
Aug 28 22:04:54 <Dawny> «Please and thank you John»
Aug 28 22:05:03 <PaulS_laptop> «Colonel, permission to dismount and unfuck this truck?»
Aug 28 22:05:20 <Waxx> «Granted.» Dmitri taps Misha, who will replace John on the gun mount.
Aug 28 22:05:34 <Waxx> «Everyone else, disembark and cover him.»
Aug 28 22:05:44 <Maddy> Alice hops out.
Aug 28 22:06:01 <MisterFlames> "Let me get some height so I can keep watch. My eyes are better than yours."
Aug 28 22:06:14 <PaulS_laptop> John dismounts
Aug 28 22:06:25 <MisterFlames> Midnight looks around, keeping watch.
Aug 28 22:06:41 <Waxx> Dmitri hops out, Misha jumps on the gun mount and begins swivelling it around to cover them.
Aug 28 22:06:43 <Dawny> Kay hops out and covers a flank
Aug 28 22:06:50 <PaulS_laptop> He alks around to the front of the vehicle, looking at what the ground is. What is it?
Aug 28 22:07:17 <Dexanote> Shank jumps beside hum.
Aug 28 22:07:20 <Dexanote> him*
Aug 28 22:08:21 <E4DGM> It's concrete. It's opened. The earth is visible below.
Aug 28 22:09:10 <Dexanote> "Yep thaz a crack alright."
Aug 28 22:09:12 <PaulS_laptop> How deep is the hole?
Aug 28 22:10:59 * DawnyWorks (moc.noehtyar.608A875A-CRInys|tibbiM#moc.noehtyar.608A875A-CRInys|tibbiM) has joined #afteractionmission
Aug 28 22:12:34 <E4DGM> As deep as you can see.
Aug 28 22:12:46 <E4DGM> It's dark as fuck, and the rain's still intensifying.
Aug 28 22:12:58 <E4DGM> It's actually starting to pool in low areas on the side of the road.
Aug 28 22:13:09 <PaulS_laptop> "Goddammit. Well, I'm going to try something. Everybody stand back"
Aug 28 22:13:20 <PaulS_laptop> "like, WAY back"
Aug 28 22:13:31 <Dexanote> Shank steps back.
Aug 28 22:13:42 <E4DGM> It falls in sheets down the darkened streets around you, and it running in small streams down the sides of the road.
Aug 28 22:13:44 <MisterFlames> Midnight hops off the vehicle.
Aug 28 22:13:45 <DawnyWorks> "I don't like how this sounds…" Kay takes a few steps off the road and takes a knee
Aug 28 22:13:53 <Waxx> Dmitri mutters to himself, then steps back. This is already going well.
Aug 28 22:14:56 <Waxx> After some translating, Misha hops down as well.
Aug 28 22:15:36 * Dawny has quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
Aug 28 22:16:00 <PaulS_laptop> 4df+6 tagging "a whiff of the ol brimstone" John grabs two of the frags and gets down on the ground, reaching down into the pavement to use them as makeshift(and very small) demolition charges. One for each tire and down far enough to hopefully collapse the ground and make an easier slope for the hummvee's tires to "grab" without trashing the tires.
Aug 28 22:16:01 <Quidmore> PaulS_laptop: tagging "a whiff of the ol brimstone" John grabs two of the frags and gets down on the ground, reaching down into the pavement to use them as makeshift(and very small) demolition charges.

Aug 28 22:16:25 <Maddy> <…really, John?»
Aug 28 22:16:37 <PaulS_laptop> «yes, really»
Aug 28 22:16:44 <Dexanote> "Kinda stupid."
Aug 28 22:16:49 <PaulS_laptop> «cover your ears» he pulls the pins and runs.
Aug 28 22:16:57 <Maddy> Alice takes cover.
Aug 28 22:16:59 <MisterFlames> Midnight runs away from the explosion.
Aug 28 22:17:05 <Dexanote> Shank steps back a bit more
Aug 28 22:17:13 <Waxx> Dmitri and Misha stay where they are, judging themselves to be safe.
Aug 28 22:17:14 <DawnyWorks> Kay shakes her head and falls into a prone.
Aug 28 22:17:54 <E4DGM> They hear tink, tink, tink, tink, tink, thud as the grenades roll down the deep, narrow chasm and then a BOOM.
Aug 28 22:18:49 <Waxx> Dmitri shakes his head and walks over to take a look at the front end of the vehicle. Is it possible to move the thing at all by pushing?
Aug 28 22:18:50 * Gerald has quit (Ping timeout)
Aug 28 22:19:25 <E4DGM> Disregard. They blow, blasting a small amount of dirt out. The concrete is undamaged.
Aug 28 22:19:39 <E4DGM> If you can lift a humvee.
Aug 28 22:19:50 <Waxx> That seems unlikely!
Aug 28 22:19:50 <PaulS_laptop> "Dammit"
Aug 28 22:20:01 * Gerald (~PI.06250957.754EB832.5B4A3365|alliztahc#PI.06250957.754EB832.5B4A3365|alliztahc) has joined #afteractionmission
Aug 28 22:20:03 <Waxx> «Change of plans. Form up. We will move by foot to the first location.»
Aug 28 22:20:11 <PaulS_laptop> "Anybody else got any ideas? I didn't bring any bigger blasting gear."
Aug 28 22:20:19 <Maddy> <We can't ust leave the Humvee here.>
Aug 28 22:20:20 <PaulS_laptop> «Gotcha, Colonel»
Aug 28 22:20:22 <Waxx> «We gather what we can and radio for Dodge Ridge to come tow us out after we are ready.»
Aug 28 22:20:29 <Waxx> «This has taken too much time already.»
Aug 28 22:20:32 <DawnyWorks> «Sorry guys»
Aug 28 22:21:02 <Waxx> «Form up and move.»
Aug 28 22:21:04 <Maddy> <Christ, give me a second.>
Aug 28 22:21:07 <MisterFlames> "All right, Colonel." Midnight says. She looks around her, then starts going toward the town.
Aug 28 22:21:15 <DawnyWorks> Kay falls into place next to Misha
Aug 28 22:21:16 <Maddy> Alice puts the humvee in neutral.
Aug 28 22:21:31 <Maddy> 4df+6 Action point, pull the fucker out.
Aug 28 22:21:32 <Quidmore> Maddy: Action point, pull the fucker out.: 4 (4df+6=-, +, -, -)
Aug 28 22:21:46 <E4DGM> 4df+6
Aug 28 22:21:46 <Quidmore> E4DGM: 5 (4df+6=+, -, 0, -)
Aug 28 22:21:57 <Maddy> <A little help?>
Aug 28 22:21:57 <E4DGM> It budges, but not much.
Aug 28 22:22:24 <Maddy> Considering the 5'3 lady moved it at all, help would probably get it moving.
Aug 28 22:22:54 <PaulS_laptop> 4df+3 John walks over to the front of the hummvee. He braces himself against the front and gives it a heave.
Aug 28 22:22:55 <Quidmore> PaulS_laptop: John walks over to the front of the hummvee. He braces himself against the front and gives it a heave.: 3 (4df+3=0, +, -, 0)
Aug 28 22:23:02 <DawnyWorks> Kay bites her lip, thinking about moving it, but decides to follow orders.
Aug 28 22:23:13 <Waxx> Dmitri sighs and walks over to try pushing as well. It is worth a try.
Aug 28 22:23:17 <E4DGM> John by himself fails to do it as well.
Aug 28 22:23:23 <Waxx> 4df+4
Aug 28 22:23:28 <Waxx> 4df+4 Pushing
Aug 28 22:23:28 <Quidmore> Waxx: Pushing: 2 (4df+4=-, 0, -, 0)
Aug 28 22:23:32 <Waxx> Thanks, quidmore
Aug 28 22:23:33 <MisterFlames> "All right, everyone coordinate, please."
Aug 28 22:23:37 <PaulS_laptop> «All at once? Shank, you too. Pull with Alice»
Aug 28 22:23:39 <DawnyWorks> "Okay we all need to do it at the same time"
Aug 28 22:24:04 <Maddy> <On three.>
Aug 28 22:24:17 * Tox|Laptop (~ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.28178A11-CRInys|agemO#ten.nozirev.soif.cdhsaw.28178A11-CRInys|agemO) has joined #afteractionmission
Aug 28 22:24:33 <Dexanote> "Aight." he's there.
Aug 28 22:24:55 <Maddy> <One, t-two, three.> She pulls!
Aug 28 22:24:58 <DawnyWorks> 4df+7 Get it out!
Aug 28 22:24:59 <Quidmore> DawnyWorks: Get it out!: 8 (4df+7=+, -, +, 0)
Aug 28 22:25:00 <Maddy> 4df+7
Aug 28 22:25:01 <PaulS_laptop> 4df+7
Aug 28 22:25:01 <Quidmore> PaulS_laptop: 4 (4df+7=-, 0, -, -)
Aug 28 22:25:01 <Quidmore> Maddy: 6 (4df+7=-, +, -, 0)
Aug 28 22:25:04 <Waxx> 4df+8 Pushing
Aug 28 22:25:04 <Quidmore> Waxx: Pushing: 9 (4df+8=0, +, +, -)
Aug 28 22:25:08 <E4DGM> 4df+6
Aug 28 22:25:08 <Dexanote> 4df+7 He pulls
Aug 28 22:25:08 <Quidmore> E4DGM: 9 (4df+6=+, 0, +, +)
Aug 28 22:25:08 <Quidmore> Dexanote: He pulls: 6 (4df+7=0, 0, -, 0)
Aug 28 22:25:51 <E4DGM> The humvee lifts and slips out of the gap, the wheels balancing precariously on the threshold.
Aug 28 22:26:18 <Waxx> "Keep pushing, try not to fall in the damn hole."
Aug 28 22:26:46 <PaulS_laptop> «We got anything to bridge the gap once we're out?»
Aug 28 22:26:58 <Dexanote> "We'll find a door or sommat."
Aug 28 22:27:02 <Waxx> How far does the crack extend? Is it possible to drive around it?
Aug 28 22:27:13 <Dexanote> His arms creak.
Aug 28 22:27:40 <E4DGM> Through the haze of the constant rain, a narrower spot can be seen off to the left of the road.
Aug 28 22:28:02 <Waxx> Dmitri points. "Over there, we should be able to cross it if we are careful."
Aug 28 22:28:25 <DawnyWorks> "Yes Sir" Kay chews her lip.
Aug 28 22:29:18 <Maddy> Alice nods.
Aug 28 22:30:17 <Dexanote> "Well, les get on wit it." He climbs back on the vehicle.
Aug 28 22:30:25 <DawnyWorks> "Am…am I still driving?"
Aug 28 22:30:33 <Waxx> "Everyone in. We have wasted enough time. Mrs. Dodge Ridge, you drive."
Aug 28 22:30:50 <Maddy> <Right.> Alice climbs behind the wheel.
Aug 28 22:31:07 <DawnyWorks> Kay climbs into the back and picks at a loose thread on her uniform.
Aug 28 22:31:11 <Waxx> Dmitri and Misha climb back in, returning to their passenger seats so John can take the gun.
Aug 28 22:31:25 <PaulS_laptop> John takes the gun back from Misha, gesturing politely to indicate so.
Aug 28 22:31:54 <MisterFlames> Midnight shakes herself off and hops up to the dashboard. "Better take it easy, Alice. We'll want to watch out for other cracks."
Aug 28 22:32:19 <Maddy> <Righto.> Alice starts off, driving slowly and cautiously.
Aug 28 22:35:15 <MisterFlames> Midnight looks around, keeping her eyes open for troubles.
Aug 28 22:35:16 <E4DGM> There's a dip in the road as the approach the station. Water has pooled in the roadway.
Aug 28 22:35:39 <Maddy> <The road is flodded, h-how do we w-want to go forward?>
Aug 28 22:36:09 <Waxx> «Are there any side roads you can see?»
Aug 28 22:36:13 <PaulS_laptop> «slowly and carefully»
Aug 28 22:36:15 <E4DGM> Alice, perception.
Aug 28 22:36:22 <Maddy> 4df+3
Aug 28 22:36:23 <Quidmore> Maddy: 4 (4df+3=+, +, 0, -)
Aug 28 22:37:08 <Dexanote> Shank looks around.
Aug 28 22:37:24 <Maddy> <It doesn't look to deep.>
Aug 28 22:37:43 <Waxx> «If you think you can, then ford it.»
Aug 28 22:37:48 <Maddy> 4df+3 Looking while she proceeds carefully
Aug 28 22:37:48 <Quidmore> Maddy: Looking while she proceeds carefully: 5 (4df+3=0, +, +, 0)
Aug 28 22:37:53 <E4DGM> Straight shot forward. The gas station's a hundred meters ahead. The water looks like it's deepening.
Aug 28 22:38:01 <Dexanote> "… Uh."
Aug 28 22:38:12 <Waxx> «Go now, move!»
Aug 28 22:38:41 <Maddy> <Damn, it's g-getting deeper…w-wait, I think the trailer's caught on something.>
Aug 28 22:39:40 <Maddy> <Wait… it's fine now. Orders?>
Aug 28 22:39:46 <Waxx> «Ford it, now.»
Aug 28 22:39:51 <Waxx> «Before the water rises too much.»
Aug 28 22:39:54 <Maddy> <What does that mean?>
Aug 28 22:39:58 <Waxx> «Go through!»
Aug 28 22:40:00 <DawnyWorks> «Go»
Aug 28 22:40:03 <Maddy> She goes.
Aug 28 22:40:33 <E4DGM> The humvee clears the water.
Aug 28 22:41:12 <Waxx> «Very good, now keep going. We are almost there.»
Aug 28 22:41:21 <Maddy> Alice heads up Bathurst to lot 13.
Aug 28 22:43:15 <E4DGM> The station's on their righjt, with several other buildings adjacent
Aug 28 22:43:23 <E4DGM> The islands are dark.
Aug 28 22:44:12 <Waxx> How many buildings does the gas station actually have?
Aug 28 22:44:26 <Dexanote> Shank's face lights. «Careful now.»
Aug 28 22:46:01 <PaulS_laptop> «power's out.»
Aug 28 22:46:02 <PaulS_laptop> «fucking pumps're probably dead»
Aug 28 22:46:31 <Waxx> «There may be a backup generator, if luck is with us. Disembark, prepare to sweep the buildings.»
Aug 28 22:46:32 <E4DGM> Just the one large one. Large glass pane windows. Small utility building beside. A couple large single story buildings on the adjacent lots.
Aug 28 22:46:38 <E4DGM> All are dark.
Aug 28 22:47:22 <Waxx> Dmitri hops out and unslings his rifle. «Into the station. Watch the nearest buildings.»
Aug 28 22:47:24 <PaulS_laptop> John dismounts «colonel, I can probably pump it manually»
Aug 28 22:47:41 <PaulS_laptop> «or jury rig the pump to work manual, anyway»
Aug 28 22:47:44 <Waxx> «Does that still work? Very well, if you can.»
Aug 28 22:48:22 <PaulS_laptop> John walks over to one of the pumps and opens'er up
Aug 28 22:48:58 <Waxx> Dmitri heads over to the station and tries the door.
Aug 28 22:49:08 <E4DGM> It's locked.
Aug 28 22:49:16 <DawnyWorks> Kay stands next to Misha, wherever that is
Aug 28 22:49:26 <Waxx> 4df+4 Melee combat, kicking the door open?
Aug 28 22:49:27 <Quidmore> Waxx: Melee combat, kicking the door open?: 4 (4df+4=0, +, -, 0)
Aug 28 22:49:42 <E4DGM> 4df Glass
Aug 28 22:49:43 <Quidmore> E4DGM: Glass: 0 (4df=-, 0, +, 0)
Aug 28 22:50:03 <E4DGM> The glass shatters into hundreds of pieces.
Aug 28 22:50:16 <Waxx> Dmitri didn't expect the door to be made entirely of glass, but so be it.
Aug 28 22:50:43 <Waxx> He steps through the opening and looks around, keeping his weapon high.
Aug 28 22:50:44 <PaulS_laptop> what does John see on the inside of the fuel pump? Is it still usable if powered up?
Aug 28 22:51:02 <Maddy> Alice follows, keeping an eye of for silliness
Aug 28 22:51:24 <Dexanote> Shank steps off, looking around. He goes over to John.
