Civilians - Legomc
The Meth Head gets up from his strung out nap
Even though he is still messed up and has plenty of meth, he looks to go score some more.
He makes his way towards some soldiers hoping to add to his meth collection.
He yells, "Yo! You bitches got any drugs?"
The soldiers ignore the pants-less weirdo.
The avid hiker and camper decides fish will not be a sufficient meal.
He puts down his fish to grab his crossbow.
He ventures out looking for some more food.
A bird is perched atop a rock. Steadying his aim, the hiker takes his shot
But his bow backfires and knocks him on his ass Critical Failure.
The bird is not amused and moves to higher perch.
The Camera Aficionado looks around for a good shot for his portfolio. He is determined to get into photography school, 7th time's a charm.
He sees a group of what he assumes are LARPers and decides their juxtaposition in a modern landscape will surely score him a spot in the class.
He botches the photo, stupid thumb!!!
The Janitor sees some garbage littering the grass.
He sweeps some into his bag
And then contemplates where he should put it now and what is he doing with his life.
A hip youth sits at a bus stop licking his ice cream cone.
He whips out his cell phone to snapchat all his friends about his strawberry triple scoop.
He attempts to walk across the street but runs into some sorcerer guy. Don't text and walk!
The cone leaps from his hand all over the sorcerer, who looks at him in disgust.
Imperial Magikstrate - RagingKrikkit
Quallon Darkblade is quick to defend his friend, the "sorcerer." He leaps over to the youth and beings to tell him a spooky tale in hopes of making him run in fright.
The young hip guy is not amused...
and he walks off. Feat Failed
Palerus recovers from the strange encounter and gets down to business. He charges a spell to cause a malfunction in the 4 USA Soldiers guns.
The spell is relatively successful.
Three of the four troopers guns get jammed (-1 skill penalty for this turn).
Palerus then spots a sword in the bus stop garbage can, who would throw that away??
He makes his way over
And takes the blade (Use: 3 Range: CC Damage: 1 skill die)
Note: Palerus can not use his CC staff attack with only 1 hand
The Officers form squads with the agents.
One Squad move forward, reading themselves for battle.
Quallon gets out of the way so the other squad has room to advance.
Which the second squad does.
Palerus moves to the back of the squad seeking protection in the incoming altercation.
The officer urges the squad a couple millimeters forward so they can connect with one of the soldiers. The Squad opens fire, minus the Officer who's shotgun doesn't have the range.
The Squad obliterates the Soldier (17 dmg). First Blood!
The IM get a benny to use the next turn. Please specify in orders how you would like this used
USA - Silent-sigfig
Two of the soldiers form up,
and make a break for the ruins
The other trooper, inspired by the loss of his comrade, exacts his vengeance.
He just overcomes the agent's armor, sending him to his demise.
Alarmed by the forces making their way to the detention center, the Sargent gets out of his seat to act.
He grabs his trusty battle rifle (Use: 3 Range: 10 Damage: 1d6+1)
Pressing the red button, Sgt. Josiah Burns deactivates the Laser security gates.
The soldier guarding the yard makes his way in to bring the prisoner back to his cell for lockdown
Soldier: "Alright, back to yer cell. We're on lockdown."
Prisoner (Gun Show Jones): "Shit man, I just started my workout..:
The soldier leads Jones out of the yard.
Lt. Belcher ushers the Butcher out of the interrogation room to secure him in his cell.
Lt. Belcher keeps a redshirt near by as he ushers the Butcher. The rest of the detention center moves towards the front gate to defend.

The footmen shuffle around the tight quarters to move to the front of the group
Ready for action and shooting anything that comes close.

The wizard of wrath casts a magikal spell.
"1 . 2. 3. Herbal tea! You're my friend. Now follow me!!!"
"I like tea!" And just like that, the avid camper and hiker was now on the side of the Brotherhood.
Duerer now has control of the camper. Sorry legomc!
The Swordsmen move over to the crate to see what treasure is inside.
A kobra awakes as the crate is opened.
It lunges at the swordsmen who's heavy armor easily absorbs the damage.
The Other swordsmen strikes the serpent down.
END OF TURN 1
The Butcher Breaks free from his shackles.
"The time of Kaos is upon us!"
A purple flame shoots from his hand.
Suddenly the Detainment Center control panels starts bursting open in purple energy.
The device explodes sending Burns flying backwards (unharmed and not disrupted).
