Battle in the Chat: The Red Earth

Postby Theblackdog » Sat Jul 14, 2018 1:42 pm

Battle is postponed until 8 PM EST. Sign up for factions is still open on the forum.
Image
On the LCL-stained plains of post-Impact Refuge, troops from the various factions that once fought together in Operation Haymaker now battle each other for food, supplies, and the most important resource of all... a way off the planet.

Image
The presence of a crashed VoL dropship, still intact, has tempted many of the warring factions into one of the most dangerous areas of the planet.

Trattoria - Colette
Image
Dr. Lai was sent to Refuge by the Trattorian government to study the Pwnies' remains once they had been defeated. He is most displeased with the interruption of his plans.
Dr. Lai is armed with a pistol firing Francium bullets, doing 1D10 explosive damage. He can fire up to 3 shots per turn, with his weapon's UR increasing by 1 for each additional shot.
His two bodyguard robots are Size 1, AV 2D10. Each is armed with two lasers that can function as either ranged or melee weapons. If used in close combat mode, they can also be used to parry incoming melee attacks until the start of next turn.

U.S.A. - Scratch
Image
The U.S.A. dispatched professional wrestler Chip Fuckmeister to lead their forces in Operation Haymaker, because everyone in the USA knows that celebrity entertainers make the best leaders. He has two Marines with rifles and a small support walker. The walker is armed with: 2x Size 2 guns, 1x Size 2 Minigun, and 4x Size 1 rockets. As a Size 2 creation it can fire 4" of weapons per turn. Its armor is 2D10. Chip himself is armed with a folding chair.

Britannia - Hatkight
Image
Captain Harris leads the ragtag remnants of Britannia's troops. He has 3 marines with rifles and shields, one with a Steam Gatling, and one Special Astro Service sniper. The shields provide 1/3 cover against ranged attacks.

Scythia
Image
Commander Jess Stryker leads a fire team of 5 riflemen, plus a specialist with a gamma-ray laser. The laser can switch between anti-armor mode (DMG 2D12, ignores Shielded) and anti-infantry mode (DMG 2D8, uses BlastGun rules). Stryker is armed with a Nova Sword in addition to her rifle.

Angel - Falk
Image
An immature Type-3 Angel has found the armies as they prepare to face off. It is a Size 5 creation armed with two Size 5 tentacle whips. It is AV 1D10, and has 4D6 supernatural dice thanks to its AT field. If the player controlling the Angel doesn't specify how the AT field is used, it will be used for defense.

Objectives: The four minifig factions have the objective of reaching the dropship, activating it, and using it to escape with all of their currently living minifigs. Once activated the dropship will need 2 turns to boot up before it is able to fly. The Angel has the objective of killing everyone.

In addition there is a secret faction controlled by me. Bonus points for killing them... if you can find them.

OK, we're on hold for now. Britannians are reserved for Hat and people can feel free to sign up for other factions via forum. I will check back regularly through this evening to see if people are interested.

Trattoria turn 1

Dr. Lai and the guard robots sprint, and just barely make it to the hatch at the back of the dropship. Lai saves his heroic feat for a response action.

The Britannian rifle marines move to a position where they can engage either the USA or the Trattorians, and hold their fire for a response action.

Turn 1 - Scythians
Image
Stryker and three of her troops take cover, facing the center of the battlefield, and prepare to launch response attacks on anyone who comes close.

Image
The heavy fires his laser at the Angel. Its AT field deflects the shot, but it only has 1 SP die left.

Image
The heavy moves at half speed towards shelter while two soldiers cover his retreat.

Turn 1 - USA

Image
Chip Fuckmeister leads his infantry towards the ship, while they ready response shots.

Image
The Mech moves up and launches all four of its rockets at the Trattorian robots.

Image
Two of the rockets miss, and the remaining two don't do enough damage to penetrate the robots' armor. They do manage to wound Dr. Lai (one wound remaining)

Turn 2 - Trattorians
Image
Dr. Lai opens the doors of the ship and climbs in.

Image
He pulls out a small amount of the ship's volatile OT-infused fuel.

Image
The fuel starts a fire in front of the entrance hatch. Any minifig attempting to enter the hatch now takes 2D4 damage.

Image
He initiates the ship's startup sequence. The ship will become flyable at the start of turn 4.

Image
The robots exchange fire with the USA troops but no damage is done.

Turn 2- Britannians

This will make the ship unflyable
since it needs a roof to fly into space

DO IT ANYWAYS


Image
Captain Harris jumps up on the window and attempts to cut through it with his saber. Fortunately for his plans to fly the ship into space, he fails.

Image
"Let me get that for you, sir."
The Steam Gatling gunner blasts through the window, although the overkill damage isn't enough to kill Dr. Lai.

Turn 2 - Scythians

Image
Jess Stryker aims at the Gamma-Ray laser her dead specialist dropped and takes two Heroic shots.

Image
The first rotates the laser 180 degrees to aim at the Angel.

Image
The second hits the trigger. The laser blast does 3 points of damage to the Angel, bringing it down to 2 SP. Its tentacles have been downgraded to Size 2 weapons to compensate.

Image
Meanwhile, one of the riflemen spots a strange figure across the battlefield.

Image
Sam: Dammit, they found me!
Secret Faction Discovered: Sam Porter Bridges, commanded by Theblackdog

Image
The riflemen open fire, but none of them roll high enough to damage him.

Image
Sam pulls out a T.L.A. rail rifle and headshots one of them as a response action.

Turn 2 - Angel
Image
The wounded Angel charges the center of the battlefield. One tentacle decapitates the Britannian steam gunner while the other hurls Dr. Lai from his cockpit. Lai attempts to detonate the magazine of his gun before he dies, but fails.
