The First Holy Gray Hole War [open]

Post by Archduke » Tue Apr 28, 2020 9:58 am

Previously in the Gray Hole saga:
Backstory

Planning

And now, Finally, The climactic showdown begins as armies mass before the Red Wall...

Image


The First Holy Gray Hole War Begins...



Image


The Ayanami Forces still have Binji with them. Binji is not a member of the Ayanami forces, but will listen to the orders of whomever is closest to him. (Tabriks gets +1 to persuasion rolls)
Objective: Get Binji or one of your soldiers to enter the Gray Hole



Image


The Samurai bunch have also arrived to the battle.
Objective: Enter the Gray Hole
Tabriks' Objective: Convince Binji tostay with him



Image


King Arthur's Knights have also arrived, preparing for a Siege
Objective: Enter the Gray Hole



Image


Other Wacky characters have also Arrived, including QS Infinity, QS ZeeZee and A Cool Vespa Woman.
Objective: Enter the Gray Hole



Some factions are represented by single Heroes, their best chance at victory will be finding creative and awesome ways to use their feats. Bennies may be awarded for stuff I find especially cool.



Image



Environmental Hazards:
Getting to the Gray hole is no easy Task. Lady Shotgun's riflemen will shoot ant anyone who attempts to get over the wall, and the red duplo briks are too slippery to climb, so combatants will have to find creative ways to make their won way up.



Even if the wall has been scaled, there are a few blokbots between it and the Gray Hole platform, these will attempt to attack anyone who makes their way over the wall.



This is to say nothing of the Gray Hole's primary Gaurdian, The Doomsday Clock. This strange alien will instantly annihilate anyone who attempts to enter the convention floor. Only characters with a strong enough OT field can survive this. (There are three on the Board) The Doomsday clock is also impervious to most attacks, There are only two characters on the board who possess attacks powerful enough to destroy its core and put it out of commission for good.



It is also possible that the Gray Hole itself holds some kind of supernatural defenses, as it is said that only one who is worthy may enter ... what this means is yet unknown.

Didn't realise signups were still open. Tabriks is the samurai with the red armour right? I'll take him.

Turn One orders:
Have the commander order binji to stay close with him, then have them use the ultimate powers of going around the wall, as a feat. If that is not possible have the commander use a grenade. Have the other soldiers move up, some take responses and some attack the rifle men on the wall.

You should PM your orders privately so everyone doesn't see them.

Turn order was decided by a random name picker.

Ajairu: Redrover

Image

The beautiful samurai warrior attempts to seduce one of Arthur's knights with her beauty and charm



Image

Ajairu: haaaa :lol:



Image

Female purported sexual assault is a concerning common trope in Arthurian folklore, so most of the King's knights are too weary to trust a woman ... all except sweet Sir Percival, who charges headfirst into the wall for his newfound "paramore." [Feat Successful!]



Image

He could have done a better job breaking down the wall, but that's ok, he did his best.



Ayanami Empire: Dragonking1411

Image

Officer: Stay close Binji

Binji obeys.



Image

The officer tries to simply go around the wall, but only manages to reach the edge of the base plate. Hmm, maybe next time.



Image

Two soldiers shoot at the dudes on the wall, with the rest taking response actions



Image

A gunman loses his head. [First Blood!]



Cool Vespa Woman: Green

Image

LUNCH TIIIIIIIIIMMMMMEEEEEEEEEE!



Image

QS infinity takes a nasty bump on the head from the guitar and goes flying. That's gonna leave a mark...




Image

QS Infinity: Ow.




QS Infinity: Infinity

Image

Angered by his recent assault via bass guitar, QS Infinity is looking to blow off some steam. He fires at the ramparts, trying to snipe Lady Shotgun before she can get a redshirt, but the wall's defender manages to dodge out of the way. The soldier hit by regular fire however is not so lucky.




Arthur's Knights: Spectral

Image

The knights make a defensive circle near the wall

King Arthur: I am Arthur, King of the Brittons! You will bow to me!!



Image

Tabriks at least gives the old king some respect, but most of the others just laugh at him.
[Feat Failed!]



QS Space Bunny: Space Bunny

Image

QS Space Bunny: Lady shotgun! Tear down this wall!



Image

Maybe because of his quantum powers, or maybe because it never knew anything else, the wall does as its told and cracks fully in half.
[Feat Successful!]



Masuku: Motorhead Fan

Image

Masuku tries to climb the wall, but the DUPLO bloks are just too slippery. :cry:
[Feat Failed!]



Tabriks: Gorvoslov

Image

Tabriks uses his Angel powers to make a ramp out of some rocks on the battlefield. The final result actually looks pretty good! and stable too!
[Feat Successful!]




Image

He also calls out to Binji,

Tabriks: Come with me Binji, you aren't alone, I promise.



Image

Binji looks back...



QS ZeeZee: ZeeZee

Image

ZeeZee may have been declared official Anno best girl, but she didn't send me orders this turn




Image

Maybe next time.



Image

Suddenly, another figure appears on the table, its the talented and inventive QS Bookwyrm!



Overwatch: (yay!)

Re: The First Holy Gray Hole War TURN 2

Post by Archduke » Sat May 16, 2020 11:33 am

A lot of people didn't send me orders this turn, so if I had anything to work off of, I tried to just repeat their orders from the previous turn, but please make sure you are sending in your orders so that this battle can be more fun for everyone. Many thanks to those who did send in their orders for Turn 2!

Once again, a random name picker was used.




Tabriks: Gorvoslov




Image

Tabriks moves closer to Binji




Image

He tries to make a Binji leash out of a small plant, but it is too fragile :(
[Feat Failed!]



Cool Vespa Woman: Green



Image

She takes off up the ramp.




Image

"Hey guys, I bet the doomsday clock won't kill you if you just go over there, why not try it?"

The wall defenders aren't convinced. [Feat Failed!]



Masuku: Motorhead Fan




Image

No orders from Motorhead Fan this turn, so I repeated the previous orders. Masuku managed to not only scale the wall, but also get all the way up the building this time, so nice job I guess. [Feat Critically Successful!!!]




King Arthur's Knights: Spectral




Image

The Knights begin heading through the breach in the wall. Gawain gets to the other side, with Galahad following not to far behind. Gawain takes a swipe at one of the Blokbots, but his sword doesn't do much. Maybe next time.

King Arthur: Noble Brittons Atop these walls! Heed my words for I am thy king! Our lands are a'threatened by the heathen Saxons! Stand with me and we shall smite those beasts of men and make them heartily suck my taint!

Unfortunately, thanks to some truly abysmal rolls (sorry Spectral), it turns out that a good chunk of the men on the walls were Saxons themselves, and weren't exactly happy with Arthur's little speech. [Feat Critically Failed!!!]




Image

Both Frank and Mordred give their lives to protect their King from the hail of bullets, sacrificing their lives in the process. Arthur is knocked down, but unhurt. He will have to show these punks the wrath of his Holy Sword Excalibur next turn...




Ayanami Empire: Dragonking1411



Image

Last orders repeated because no new orders. Binji and the officer manage to phase through the wall somehow, and more ground fire kills another dude on the wall. Cool. [Feat Successful!]




QS ZeeZee: ZeeZee




Image

"That's Mine now Nerd! uwu" *shove*
[Feat Successful!]



Image
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr (she doesn't make it very far)




QS Bookwyrm: Bookwyrm



Image

No orders from Bookwyrm this turn. Oh well, it's still nice to have him here.




QS Space Bunny: Space Bunny



Image

Space Bunny tries to build a Blokbot out of wall rubble, but this one looks a little off... [Feat Failed!]

So instead, Space Bunny just decides to head for the ramp.




Ajairu: Redrover




Image

I re-rolled Percival's dedication level, and it seems he has become so infatuated with the beautiful samurai, that he will serve her for the remainder of the game.



Image

Ajairu runs up the ramp "I AM THE SPEAR THAT PIERCES THE HEAVENS!!!





Image

She knocks some guys around, but her damage rolls are not very impressive. That's ok Ajairu, Just believe in the me that believes in you. You'll get it next time.




QS Infinity: Infinity




Image

Ayanami Soldier: Do you hear something?





Image

Infinity called down a meteor on their position, killing two grunts, but not setting anyone on fire. The rest of the Ayanami soldiers disperse. [Feat Successful!]




Image

Infinity then climbs the ramp and starts firing on the wall dudes, but his aim isn't that good and he kills no one.




Turn Overwatch:
Image


Info: At the end of turn Three, the identities of all characters with OT fields, or OT field breaking weapons will be revealed...

I am now accepting orders for turn three, which will be due Saturday, May 23rd

Orders for turn three. Have the commander tell binji to attack some blok bots. Then have him try to use a grenade so his troops can get through, if they can get through have them attack blok bots, if they can't have them shoot at infinity's army.
