Subject: Rhyson wants to get some information on the room before entering

Rhyson wants to get some information on the room before entering - is there anything to know beyond "it is a med unit?"

The doors are marked with a universal symbol for first aid. (red cross). The doors are clear with strips of frosting to allow some privacy but not a lot. The light comes from a strong light source in the ceiling. From where you are standing you can see the walls are all painted white. Through the frosting there appears to be some beds or at least platforms you'd association with medical examination tables. No shadows of anything moving within.

Does that help?

Subject: Which way to go

The battle was over and the cat Bots were dispatched. Lum looked them four robot with some care as these cats used a lot of power and had to be stored somewhere. Of the four, three were leaking a blue gel and were mangled up badlyi. The gel had a strange odor to it that reminded lum of the fulgin batteries they used for the blasters, but the gel did not seem corrosive at all. If the batteries were used up and then recharged, they gave off a similar scent. The last one, he was able to pull from the unit a large gel pack about the size of his hand. The blue gel sparkled and when he touched the ends of the pack, he felt a jolt of power. This is a tech that Lum has never seen or heard about before.

You continue down the corridor cautiously. As you move over the debris, you see the hall continues for a while and then you come across another pile of debris. This happens three times, each one bigger than the next but any sounds you make do not bring about any more Catbots.

Finally, you reach the end of the corridor and see another security door as you have seen before. The light above this one is green and the door opens up as you approach with a pneumatic hiss. Beyond it appears to be some sort of junction room (40x40) with doors on all four walls. The doors on the right are steel and framed in shiny metallic panels with a single button control panel on the left (elevator doors). Across from you is another sealed set of security doors with Saurian marking on it. To your left are a set of clear Plexiglas doors that are closed. The room beyond them is very brightly lit and although the marking on the doors are in Saurian, all of you recognise the universal sign for Medical or First aid.

Okay. Battle is over. You are still on the wrong side of a rubble pile but at least the pets are not attacking anymore.

Subject: and done

Máiréad plants the butt of the staff on the ground, and crouches down on her heals and mutters a prayer to the Spirits to aid her companions and heal them from injury. As she summons the spirits and their power, something happens - the energy of the spirits comes to her so easily and she channels the mana more effectively than she has done before. So much so that she finds herself with a bounty of energy and places the residual energy as a shield around her and Rhyson. (Equivalent if a high critical roll of spell casting).

The party feels the energy flooding through them as their wounds heal and tiredness is pushed aside with a renewed energy. (Everyone up to full)

The catbots move towards the party and fire their blasters. One targets Lum but the orc warrior is on the move and manages to dodge the attack. Tomiki takes a hit to the shoulder but his armour absorbs most of the damage and what little gets through is healed by the healing aura of Mai. The third catbot fires at Máiréad but her energy shield and stone cloak take the damage instead.

Tomiki fires at a well-aimed blast with his rifle and scores a direct hit in the core of the robot. It screeches mechanically and drops to the ground. It is down but the lights are still on and its system sputter to reset.

Rhyson used the spark Jolt once again but the cats are too fast and slick in there movement and they avoid the electrical field.

Lum pulls the cylinder out of the cabinet, yanks the pin and hopes that the old thing will still work after possible decades down here. Luckily, the extinguisher erupts with a cloud of cold vapour at the catbots as they are moving to attack. The cloud confuses their sensor and they slow down, unable to adjust to their environment. Lum empties the cylinder on the three killer robots, not taking any chances. Dazed and confused, these kitties are easily put down by Lum's axe and Tomiki's Sword.

Subject: wounds - Alacrity style

If I say "You have taken:"

Minor Wounds - you have taken less than 10% for your original Hit points
Light Wounds - You have taken between 11-25% of your original
Serious Wounds - You have taken between 26-50% of your original
Critical Wounds - You have taken between 51-75% of your original
Death's Door - You are at 76% or less of original HP.

One aspect of this game is your armour absorbs damage instead of adding to your protection. Lum's armour is smoking because it absorbed the max damage it could.

Just a note, that the two catbots were fully charges and ready to use their heavy blasters on the party but Rhyson Spark Jolt disabled them so they had to start again.

If I were to add another player, I would wait until this adventure is done, which is about 2-3 rooms away.

Subject: Ow

Máiréad fired an Arcane Blast from her staff at the wounded Catbot but just as she did it reanimated and leapt upwards, avoiding the magical attack. As it darted about, Tomiki aimed at it with an eye usually set to killing another man. Although this kitty had no heart of lungs, the central body had an area that glowed and he bet heavily on that being a weak spot. He fired and hit it directly, causing it to fly backwards and roll across the floor, the legs twitched slightly and the all lights and movements ceased from the creature.

The other cat moves up and away from the party and then turns, firing a blaster bolt from the centre of its chest. The powerful energy beam hits Lum squarely in the chest sending him flying as well, landing unceremoniously on his back, his armour smoking and crackling. Yet, he doesn't stay down and quickly rights himself back up with nothing more than a wince.

Rhyson knew there were more of them coming; he could hear their metal claws clicking on the metal grating of the floor. As soon as he saw the signs of movement on the pile, he gathered his mana and directed it at the top of the pile. As two more catboats appeared, the spark jolted through them. They sparked and lights flickered as the two suddenly lost footing and tumbled downwards, but these cats recover faster than the other one, resetting
themselves by the bottom of the pile.

Lum fires at the Cat that blasted him but misses wildly.

One Dead Kitty and three live. All there are building up charges in their central blaster.

Lum- Seriously wounded (mostly due to armour and guardian skill)

By my calculations Rhy has used 28 MP out of 55 and Mai has used 10 out of 50.

A mage can regain spent magic points by resting. For each full hour of rest and/or meditation, you get back 1d6 + Willpower magic points. If you manage 8 hours of uninterrupted rest and/or meditation, you get all your magic points back.

There are rumours of "mana" potions out there in the big cities but none of you have ever seen one. They are supposedly blue and glow slightly but buying one from a street vendor is liable to get you blind fast.

You are all Level 4 characters.

Tomiki Kenji was born an elf to a prominent elf family that did not want him, within a matter of hours he was left in an alley all alone. By fate or the gods some say he was found by a young woman. The human women feeling an immediate bond to the Elven child took him home to her family. Though at first hesitant, her determination to raise the elf child convinced her very traditional focused family to accept him as their own.

The first 20 years of his life from age 5 consisted of training in a stealthy style combat with weapons and in the art of not being seen. It was revealed to him during this time that the hesitation of taking him in to his new family was due to the family business of "Aslan" or the Art of Assassination. According to the father, they had served an emperor in the time before the dark and they continued the traditions for the day when they would be called to serve again. But there were still evil forces out there that sought to destroy all remaining traces of the traditions.

Then one day Tomiki was returning from an errand hen he was attacked by many men fighting in a similar style that he used. He managed to kill them all but as very badly wounded. BY sheer willpower he returned to his family to discover they had been attacked as well .All were slain except (brother? Sister? The mother?). Tomiki buried his family and took his father's red hilted Aslan Sword (precious item).

His search for his sibling has lead him to believe they are hiding in the rust waste. He joined Dwan's scouts to be able to move freely in the waste and to keep a livelihood as well.

Rhyson was the son of a minor noble family (House Tandris) in the town of Tandris near the city of Vorakis. He was the second of three children which meant that his older brother, Dwynen, would be the one to lead the House in the future. Thus when Rhy began to show a talent for magic, the family was quite pleased. He would be able to contribute to the families' position even if he didn't lead the family. Rhys was also excited, for the possibilities of magic intrigued him.

But the young elf also struggled with the community he found around him. He saw the elite city-elf families (And as an extension - the Circle as well) dominating other people for their own benefit. From a very young age he was aware that those above his family n rank considered themselves to be his betters and felt that he was simply there to be used for their benefit. Even his own family was part of this corrosive dynamic - they used those "below them" without much concern for the welfare or interests of those thus used. Even their own children were pawns in a game of power. Rhyson did not like being a pawn - or even being a piece of higher rank and treating others as pawns. Deep inside he just didn't feel that people should be treated like sheep. They were people. Plus, suchnentitled behavior seemed to be the cause of the wars and cataclysm that had marred the world's history.

As it turns out, this attitude did more than just annoy his parents. (Which it also did!) One day the young mage-in-training was in the city of Vorakis when he saw several young men pushing around a young man named Tulo that Rhys recognized as the assistant of alocal alchemist who frequently helped Rhys get the spell components he needed. As he approached the quarrel he was horrified to discover that the young men were not actually after the alchemist's assistant himself, but were dragging his wife into a nearby house for pleasure. They young Tulo was simply trying to stop them, but was faced by multiple blades of high rank. Without thinking, Rhys jumped into the situation, tripped up the one dragging the woman into the building, grabbed the lady and pushed her behind him and stood between the young couple and their tormenters. Those he opposed were willing to fight, but a quick spell or two covered their retreat allowing Rhys and the couple to escape.

But the escape was only temporary. One of the young men came from a house that was substantially more powerful than House Tandris. Rhys had stepped on some powerful toes. Luckily he had been smart enough not to kill anyone in making his escape, but the public humiliation of his "betters" could not be ignored. As a minor noble himself, Rhys was able to avoid public punishment, but only by leaving. His siblings offered words of encouragement, but also words of what they considered wisdom about "knowing his place in the world." His parents were disappointed and, while not disowning their middle child, made it clear that he would be unwelcome for awhile. Angry and abandoned, the young Rhyson didn't know exactly what his "place in the world" would turn out to be, but he was damned sure it didn't include standing by and bowing while others brought hatred and violence into the world.

And so he found himself on the road, but not alone. The young alchemist's apprentice and his wife accompanied him. As witnesses (and in the minds of the powerful, the cause of) of the public humiliation of a noble their life would not be tolerable or safe in Vorakis. Where were they going? None of them was quite sure. Rhys figured he could keep himself alive with his magic, but the young couple needed work. Eventually they wandered into the town of Thay where they were able to find an alchemist in need of an assistant. Tulo felt the alchemist took advantage eof the situation, but still, it was work. Thus Rhys was freed from the responsibility of needing to look after the young pair. But he also needed work - he family had given him a little money when he left town, but it was running out quickly under the pressure of supporting three people. he found work in the same town as the others, working for the dwarf Dwan at the Pegasus Inn. It didn't feel like a permanent home, but it provided food, a bed, money and some time to think and learn. And Dwan seemed a worthy person to work for, which felt significant for Rhyson after his previous experiences with those of wealth and position.

Máiréad was born to a minor noble family, the father being an industrialist who made a lot of money on tech reclamation. She was the 4th of 6 daughters born to her mother in an attempt to produce a son. Her mother died giving birth to the 6th daughter. Máiréad loved her mother and felt spiritually connected to her and spent a lot of time just following her around and trying to learn anything she could. When her mother died, Máiréad said she could still feel her mother there looking after her. Her father remarried a year later and the stepmother produced the desired heir on her first try.

Máiréad was an imaginative child, always full of stories and talking about imaginary friends she played with, but as she grew older, the imaginary friends did not leave her. She saw spirits and things everywhere and talked to them which caused a lot of consternation with her father and stepmother. She even said that she could hear her mother speaking to her at times; mostly when she felt alone and afraid. They sent her to therapists, doctors, and mages to "cure" her of her ailment, but to no success. Máiréad was very smart, but her tutors all said that she was too distracted and didn't apply herself well. Máiréad grew resentful and defiant of the doctors who were constantly trying to make her 'normal'.

It was when she was due for another round of therapy that she decided to hide in the family gardens. There she found a hole in the ground, which was a hidden entrance that led to an old church or holy place buried deep beneath. No doubt from before the chaos wars, the place was very dark, but it was here that the darkness began to talk to her. It told her of the spirits she saw and taught her how to manipulate them to do things in exchange for a power she had within her called mana. It gave her a dark crystal to use as a spell focus. She could heal, move the earth and even protect others with the spirits. She sought out the darkness often, but it was asking more and more from her that she did not feel comfortable with - using the spirits as a master and forcing them to her will.

One day, Máiréad heard her mother whispering to her that what she was doing was wrong and evil. After that, she decided to stop seeking out the Dark God, as she came to call it, and walk a new path. She gave it her dark crystal back and walked away, but the darkness was angered by her leaving, she could feel it in the garden and it haunted her in her dreams. It whispered to her and told her that she must come back, but she hardened her mind and blocked it out. But the Dark God would not be so easily defeated.

A few weeks later, her family home caught fire and all her family was killed while Máiréad was away at the market. It was labelled as an accident, but Máiréad knew better. She knew it was the Dark God and that she had to get away - far away from the Dark god.

As she went through the meager remains of the estate, she found an old oak staff, gnarled but beautiful. She remembered that it had belonged to her mother, she remembered sitting at her mother's feet as she smoothed the wood and carved it with little symbols and designs. Máiréad took the staff and it became her weapon and her new spell focus.

She left home and hid out in the rust waste for awhile, before meeting some of Dwan's scouts. They talked her into returning with them to talk to Dwan who seen the skill and power within this young woman. So she became one of them; one of Dwan's Scout. Máiréad has not felt the Dark God's presence for years, but it still whispers in her dreams; when it does she touches her mother's staff and seeks solace with the spirits, her mother's included, and the voice is quieted.

Although Máiréad is now one of Dwan's Scouts, she is very reclusive, preferring the company of her Spirits and animals than the company of people. She believes that people come and go, but her Spirits and the animals of the forest are always there for her. Even though she will have a room at the Pegasus, she seldom uses it as she prefers the nearby woods where she feels more at home. She works with the other scouts out of necessity and not out of a sense of friendship. She doesn't really trust many people, scouts included, unless the Spirits have shown her that person is trustworthy. She is a strict vegetarian as she doesn't condone the killing of animals, unless it can't be avoided.

Scouts she has worked with have said she can be difficult and a pain in the ass at times, but her magical abilities have proven very useful and saved lives of other scouts.

Arcane Blast No MP cost Range attack with damage of 1d6+Willpower+level

Healing Touch (novice)
Type: Utility MPC: 1-3
CT: Major Action TN: 10
Your touch seals wounds and restores vigor to one wounded target. You can choose to spend up to 3 MPs when you cast the spell. For each MP spent, the target gets back 25% of original Health. You can cast this on yourself.

Revival (novice)
Type: Utility MPC: 5
CT: Major Action TN: 14
Your touch helps restore the grievously wounded or fallen. A dying character adjacent to you immediately regains 10 + their Constitution + your Willpower in Health. Since dying characters cannot take actions, you cannot cast this spell on yourself.

Healing Aura (journeyman)
type: Utility MPC: 3-9
CT: Major Action TN: 15
Waves of healing energy radiate from you and aid your nearby allies. You can pick a number of targets up to twice your Willpower, all of whom must be within 10 yards of you. All targets regain 10% of original Health per 3 MP you spend (to a maximum of 30% Health for 9 MP). You can designate yourself as one of the targets.

Restoration (Master)
Type: Utility MPC: 15
CT: 1 Minute TN: 17
You can restore a gravely injured character to health, though this spell takes 1 minute to cast and is thus most useful outside of combat encounters. You must remain adjacent to the target throughout the casting. If successful, the target regains Health equal to (1d6 plus your Willpower) × 10%.

Rock Blast (novice)
Type: Attack MPC: 4
CT: Major Action TN: 12
A blast of small rocks burst from your hand or arcane device at a visible enemy within 20 yards. They inflict 1d6 + Willpower penetrating damage and the target is knocked prone. If the target makes a successful Constitution (Stamina) test vs. your Spellpower, Rock blast only inflicts 1d6 penetrating
damage and the target remains standing.

Stone Cloak (novice)
Type: Defense MPC: 3
CT: Major Action TN: 10
Your clothing takes on the toughness of stone while remaining pliable. Stone cloak gives you an Armor Rating equal to your Willpower ability for 1 hour. If you are wearing regular armor, stone cloak has no effect. You can only cast this on yourself.

Earth Speed (journeyman)
Type: Utility MPC: 6
CT: Major Action TN: 13
You let the earth swallow and transport you, re-emerging anywhere within 30 yards that you can see. You must be standing on dirt when you cast the spell and you must emerge from the dirt as well.

Hero's Inspiration (novice)
Type: Enhancement MPC: 3
CT: Major Action TN: 10
Your arcane power gives confidence to a number of targets equal to your Willpower. They must be within 6 yards of you when the spell is cast but may then move freely and still enjoy its effects. Those with Hero's Inspiration gain a +2 bonus on the next ability test they take (whatever it is). If they have not
used this bonus by the end of the encounter, the benefit is lost. You can designate yourself as one of the targets.

Hero's Might (novice)
Type: Enhancement MPC: 5
CT: Major Action TN: 12
Your arcane power infuses a number of targets equal to your Willpower. They must be within 6 yards of you when the spell is cast but may then move freely and still enjoy its effects. Until the end of the encounter, those enhanced with Hero's Might gain a +1 bonus to damage when making melee and ranged attacks. You can designate yourself as one of the targets.

Lum was born in the usual ways and ended up in an orphanage within Nestora City. No one seemed to know who his family were or seemed afraid to mention it if they did know. He grew up there never being adopted, always turned away; who wants an orc? But he had a friend named Otto who was a dwarf (also always picked over).

Otto was the one who started teaching Lum how to read, and then the principles of engineering. As Otto taught Lum about building structures he would say he had Uncle that had an Inn. He'd describe it and say it was called the Pegasus. When Lum asked him if he had an Uncle why was he in the orphanage? Otto just shrugged and said Pappa wasn't family anymore.
Once they reached 16 years of age, they were tossed out of the orphanage and given jobs as laborers for the Guilds. Well, Otto was a laborer, but Lum tried to be an Engineer. The guildsmen laughed that an Orc could be an Engineer and he was quickly moved to being a guard or a security thug. They just put a weapon in his hands and told him who to hurt.

It was about five years later that Lum and Otto were on a reconstruction site for a bridge near Fort Umber that things went bad for Lum. A group of men lead by a golem came and started ordering them around, telling them they had no claim to the land and to back off immediately. Otto became quite heated in his exchange with the golem and Lum tried to intercede. The golem back handed Otto with his powerful robotic arm and the blow threw Otto back against a rock, killing him instantly. Lum flew into a rage, tearing into the Golem and attacking the men. When it was all done, Lum had lost his only friend and was a wanted fugitive. There was something about the finger of the golem he destroyed that struck him, a finger that was built to look like it had a ring. A signet ring with a crudely drawn fish symbol (an alpha symbol actually). Lum took it as a reminder of that day and his friend, but also because he couldn't shake the feeling it was important.

Lum then escaped to the east and came upon the Pegasus Inn. He collapsed at the back door. When a figured appeared Lum held out his and mumbled "Otto". Dwan took him in and asked no questions. Lum plays the dumb orc card to keep people away but his true friends on his team know he is a valuable asset on a mission.

I see everyone has posted. I will see what what I can do in response soon.

Let me know if you have asked questions in the last little while and I did not answer. I was combing through the past posts today and sent a PM to BB on questions she asked.

I hope that tonight I can check some rules and update you on essentials.

Tann - Tomiki can not pinpoint attack these bots as his dex is not higher than theirs. You can however "mark" them for death and use your assassination skill against it.

Subject: Here kitty kitty

Máiréad casts a spell of protection upon her companions and is relieved to feel the spirits coming to her call. Swiftly too, as if the denizens of this place had not been called upon for so long and they now sought out the spell wielder. For the party, it felt like a sense of strength filled them and things appears a bit clearer in their minds.

But the cat-sentries were fast - real fast. They moved with a precision and grace that would humble their feline inspiration. The tails were blasters moving independently and targeting the warriors of the group. Tomiki was readying his blaster rifle and rolled to avoid the energy charge but took a hit to his shoulder that his armour deflected partially. Lum was hit by the other's blaster but his stronger armour took the hit and diffused the energy.

Tomiki dropped to one knee and fired at the robot. Years of training taught him to aim not where they were but where they would be and he hit it full in the main body. Its armour deflected the charge but the force of the bolt caused it to stumble and roll backwards. They could be hurt.

Rhyson had wanted to hit both bots with one spell but they were too swift and too smart to stay close together. Instead, he hit the one that Tomiki shot as it skittered to the ground and righted itself. The shock had a wonderful fulfilling effect of causing sparks and energy to arc though its body and then the cat dropped to the ground again. Although not moving, the lights in its body were flickering as its operating system attempted to restart.

Lum moved himself between the spellcasters and the robots and fired his heavy blaster, but missed as the creature zigged and zagged towards him. It leaped at him and attacked with its blade like claws, piercing through his armour and causing some painful injury (Light Wounds) to his chest and sides. The cat moved away rapidly and swung around to attack again.

Lum realised that the light in the centre of the bot was getting brighter as they fought. He had a bad feeling about this as he could hear more of them coming down the hallway.

OOC: Combat order stays the same in next round - M, CA(blasters), TO, RH, LM, CA(blades). Tomiki has minor wounds, Lum has light.

Glad you are all still in. Do you need a recap of event so far or just dive in with claws and blasters?
