RedShirt came over again today, and we held another Transformers Brikwar. This time, I played as the Decepticons, and he played as the Autobots. This was a King of The Hill-type game, as opposed to the point system we used last time.
Now, some story:
Weeks after the battle in front of the abandoned military compound, the Autobots decided to investigate further into the mysterious compound. An Autobot scouting party stumbled upon a severely-damaged building labeled "Energy Research Dept." After digging around inside, the Autobots found some solar panels and a pile of mysterious red ore. After cobbling together a machine that utilized the solar panels and the red ore, the Autobots had a machine that produced energon! Naturally, wherever there's energon, there's trouble...
Perceptor: The machine! It's working!
Perceptor: an energon cube!
Perceptor: Behold, our energy problem is solved!
Bumblebee: I thought this compound was abandoned...
Bumblebee: So why is there a truck here?
Mysterious Stranger: Prepare for destruction, Autobots!
Bumblebee: No on my watch! *fires pistol*
Mysterious Stranger: Grah!
Mysterious Stranger: Why you little... My face!
Mysterious Stranger: Seekers, mobilize!
Mysterious Stranger: Decepticons, transform and prepare to fight!
Bumblebee: Autobots, prepare for battle!
And thus, the battle began. We rolled initiative, and I rolled a 1.
Overview of the battlefield.
The Autobots move up, and Bumblebee takes a cube.
The Mysterious Stranger then shoots Bumblebee down.
The rest of the Decepticons then move up.
Perceptor then tries to heal 'bee...
The solar array spits out another cube. During the game, it would spit out a cube every other turn.
Blurr: IgothimIgothimIgothim! *blam* *pinggg* Nevermind!
The Fast-talking Blurr fails at shooting the Mysterious Stranger.
The Mysterious Stranger responds by shooting Blurr.
Dirge the tries to shoot Bumblebee, but fails.
Bumblebee defeats Dirge with his Energon Blades.
Old man Kup then tries to shoot the Mysterious Stranger, but fails.
Scourge then tries to shoot Kup, and fails.
Cyclonus tries to shoot Kup as well, but rolls a 1 on use, causing his Targetmaster partner Nightstick to disengage, and fall to the ground, unconscious. I honestly don't know what was up with the dice this game.
Moar fail, as Bumblebee fails at shooting the Mysterious Stranger.
Kup then shoots Scourge with his shotgun, and succeeds!
Perceptor then revives Blurr.
The Mysterious Stranger then guns down 'bee. Again.
He then Heroic feats...
"C'mon, men! you're not dead unless I say so!"
and thus, the fallen Decepticons get back up.
Nightstick then gets up...
But fails when he tries to link back up with Cyclonus.
Scourge then shoots Kup.
He also claims the Solar Array for the Decepticons. Now all they need to do is keep it that way...
Perceptor then tries to blast Scourge with his shoulder cannon...
But rolls a 1.
Blurr then picks up the unconscious Nightstick.
Then, via a What I Say Goes roll, shoots Scourge with it, and fails.
Scourge then presses the barrel of his gun between Perceptor's eyes...
And takes down Perceptor. (I rolled a 1 for damage, but we figured a point-blank shot would be insta-kill.)
Cyclonus then tries to get Nightstick back...
The Mysterious Stranger then tries to shoot Blurr, and fails, again.
Blurr then aims his rifle at Cyclonus' err... "gas cap".
And takes him down.
Scourge does not approve of that, so he shoots Blurr in the back of the head.
After the battle, Dirge finds an old tarp in the building...
As Scourge helps Cyclonus and Nightstick.
Cyclonus: That fast-talkin' slaghead shot me in the gas cap!
Dirge: Here, sir... This can cover your injury...
The Mysterious Stranger: Excellent... Soon, my conquest shall be complete! I AM MEGATRON! Mwahahahahaha!
Bumblebee: *cough* Megatron? Alive? No....
Bumblebee: Ugh.... *fzzt*
So what do you guys think?
