War of the Worlds

Mar 17 22:07:39 <TroyL> The landscape is blasted rubble, and it the distance you can hear the screech and grind of metal, followed by the echoing rapport of cannon fire. Above, glinting in the light, there's a shaking and shambling… thing. A walker. Beneath is, a small dish that seems to glow too bright… far, far too bright. You all hear the whirring of something starting up, the intangible fear of
Mar 17 22:07:40 <TroyL> anticipation… and a beam of impossibly bright light shoots out of it, hitting the earth and burning into it, scraping across the ground toward you. Fredrickson looks up, cursing. "DAMNIT! I OVERSHOT! RUN! RUN DAMNIT!"
Mar 17 22:07:58 <Maddy> <Oh fuck.>
Mar 17 22:08:07 <Echo> <HO-LEE-*FUCK*.>
Mar 17 22:08:26 <TroyL> "RUUUUUN!"""
Mar 17 22:08:42 <TroyL> Fredrickson takes off at a breakneck pace accross the blasted landscape.
Mar 17 22:08:49 <TroyL> Athletics, all.

Mar 17 22:10:59 <TroyL> Jason is away with Alice like a bolt, but Colmes and Myrtle are lagging behind. The laser beam decides to chase…

Mar 17 22:11:01 <CROM> TroyL: 2 (1d2=2)
Mar 17 22:11:06 <Echo> …
Mar 17 22:11:39 <TroyL> The healthy ones. Those other two are going to die soon anyhow. These others might be a threat. The walker pursues Jason and Alice. Fredrickson is diving for cover somewhere up ahead.
Mar 17 22:12:58 <Dexanote> "Agh FUCK-" Myrtle curses cutting any kind of strenuous excercise, immdiately enjoying a cramp in her side.
Mar 17 22:13:36 <Echo> 4df+8 Tagging DefCon and brning a point for the power. Jason spins on his heels, shouldering the rifle and transferring his momentum to a backpedal. It's actually a lot harder to run and fire accurately than it might seem, but the man knows what he's doing. He goes for the dish. Whatever. It looks like that's how it works. He opens fire.

Mar 17 22:15:03 <TroyL> The laser cuts up swiftly, dissolving bullets as they fly toward it, turning them into coppery ash. Jason, being totally awesome, immediately sees this, and fires at the connecting plate, sending the dish falling to the ground. The walker topples as Alice's bullets slam into its side.
Mar 17 22:15:27 <Ragazzo> Colmes is running!(?)
Mar 17 22:16:05 <TroyL> There's a loud, screeching whine, and you see two tendriled cords descend from the thing. It starts stalking toward Alice and Jason. Menacingly. Oh shit.
Mar 17 22:16:38 <Dexanote> Myr stumbles after the group, doing her best to keep up. Shitshitshit don't let them die-
Mar 17 22:17:07 <TroyL> Jason and Alice: Both of you take another action. The boss has enter its SECOND FORM.
Mar 17 22:17:10 <TroyL> *FORME
Mar 17 22:17:25 <Dexanote> WALKER'S INCARNATION

Mar 17 22:18:03 <Echo> Jason gives Alice another shove, glancing around for a moment to check the locationsof the others. He gives a switch on the M203-sized device mounted on the front end of the heavy-ass SCAR rebuild a flick.
Mar 17 22:18:10 <Maddy> 4df+4 <I'm going to s-slap the shit out of T-troy!>
Mar 17 22:18:10 <Echo> There's a fwump sound.

Mar 17 22:18:30 <Ragazzo> He waves at the others! Over here! OVER HERE.
Mar 17 22:18:35 <TroyL> The bullets plink off as it comes closer.
Mar 17 22:19:06 <Dexanote> Myrtle hears a fwump sound. There's a memory to duck down if there's a fwump sound. She follows Colmes, panting harshly, slumping into him and Frederickson. "DOWN."
Mar 17 22:19:12 <Echo> 4df+8 2 more points. A bright blue flame burns at the end, ignited by a red-hot glowplug. A a gout of white-ht fire washes toward the tendrils. Fire dosn't plink off anything.

Mar 17 22:20:22 <Ragazzo> Colmes gets down!
Mar 17 22:21:08 <TroyL> At first, it seems as though the fire isn't doing anything to the metallic body… but after a moment, you hear a hissing sound… a strange, popping… and you realize that you've cooked the thing in its armor. The tendrils waver for a moment, and then the whole thing collapses to the ground, the top popping open as a burned and peeling fleshy thingits brain showing and grotesque
Mar 17 22:21:09 <TroyL> beak snapping in rage
trying to crawl away quickly.
Mar 17 22:21:34 <Maddy> <Gross.>
Mar 17 22:21:53 <TroyL> Fredrickson stands up. "SHOOT. IT."
Mar 17 22:22:01 <Maddy> 4df+4 <gladly.>

Mar 17 22:22:20 <TroyL> That's more than enough for this large mass of hideous flesh.

Mar 17 22:22:48 <CROM> Dexanote: She steps out. BANGBANGBANGBANGBANG: 3 (4df+2=+, +, -, 0)
Mar 17 22:23:05 <TroyL> Of course… the same cannot be said for the figure standing next to it. The one covered in cloth and rags.
Mar 17 22:23:08 <Echo> 4df+5 <I've never killed an alien before. You'll be fun…> Jason draws his Eagle ad walks forward, slowly, unleashing an oversized 350-grain slug with each step.

Mar 17 22:23:33 <TroyL> "Are you afraid yet? I know the little girl is… I can taste it…" the narrator's voice resumes.
Mar 17 22:23:45 <Dexanote> "Oh shut the fuck up!"
Mar 17 22:24:01 <TroyL> A mad cackle, and it advances on Alice. "Come here, pretty girl…"
Mar 17 22:24:07 <Maddy> <ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING?>
Mar 17 22:24:23 <Maddy> <Just fuck off! You're not even real!>
Mar 17 22:24:24 <Echo> <…>
Mar 17 22:24:36 <Ragazzo> "You want some more, eh? I was scouted by one of the top teams in Eton I will have you now!!" Pipes up Colmes from behind the cover.
Mar 17 22:24:50 <TroyL> It's reaching for Alliiiccceeee!
Mar 17 22:24:52 <Ragazzo> 4df+4 The ridiculous taunt is an attempt to convince Hanged King to flee!

Mar 17 22:25:04 <TroyL> He wavers for a moment…
Mar 17 22:25:07 <Maddy> 4df+4 Alice shoots while backing up.
Mar 17 22:25:08 <CROM> Maddy: Alice shoots while backing up.: 6 (4df+4=+, +, 0, 0)
Mar 17 22:25:10 <Dexanote> "Cole don't make him angrier than he already is." Her eyes scan the sky, as if it'd appear from above.
Mar 17 22:25:11 <TroyL> …the advances on colmes.
Mar 17 22:25:17 <TroyL> *then
Mar 17 22:25:36 <TroyL> Alice: The bullets seem to piff through him like nothing.
Mar 17 22:25:40 <Ragazzo> "Hahah! O-oh…erm…."
Mar 17 22:25:57 <TroyL> Fredrickson staggers from hiding. "Come on! COME ON!"
Mar 17 22:26:18 <Ragazzo> He grabs Fred's hand, and myrtle's.
Mar 17 22:26:25 <Maddy> Alice reaches for Jason and Fred;s hand
Mar 17 22:26:45 <Dexanote> Myr stumbles back, holstering the gun and grabbing Colmes's and Jason's hands. "GO."
Mar 17 22:26:51 <TroyL> And amazingly, in spite of my efforts, you all BAMPH! into… #thetitan
