Time to take the fight to them...

Kate smirks as the droid is hit by not only her bolt, but its own deflected bolt as well.

"Worthless consumer models!" Kate accuses, her primary right hand closing over the hilt of her vibroblade as she draws it in one swift stroke, and her stance noticeably shifts.

From her new stance, she steps forward and breaks into a run, every movement calculated to aid her momentum and provide the most force to her blade. All the better to aid her in her attempt to run the combat droid through with her vibroblade.

(Move action - drawing vibroblade, standard action - charging the same combat droid as she targeted before. As to naming her hands, I think I've decided how I'm going to do so:
-her 'primary' hands will consist of the ones holding her second holoprojector (right) and computer interface probe (left)
-her 'secondary' hands will consist of the ones with the vibrodaggers inside of them
-her 'tertiary' hands will consist of the blaster ones
Just to make it a bit more consistent with my naming of her hands )

Round 2

Everything was happening so fast. The combat droid that had fired at Wrrlwarr shifted its aim towards the Khil embassador. However, Benjamin deflected the blast right back at the droid. It was like the blast went directly through the droid's shield and it staggered back as its torso sparked from the blast.

Arruna'dira raised her blaster and shot into the enemy group. The shot was not very accurate and hit the Mandalorian in the right foot.

The soldier was injured, but not out of the game. He raised his blaster to fire at Arruna'dira, but his arm and leg would not allow him to raise it high enough and the blast hit the floor some feets away from his target.

Kate came charging towards the droid she/it had attacked just a second before. The vibroblade pierced into the droid, cutting and sawing at the droids internal workings. Sparks came flying out as the vibroblade cut through electrical wires.

Only few inches after Kate came Wrrlwarr, the giant, furry warmachine, swinging his vibro axe at one of the crusaders. The vibro axe cut at the crusader's torso, easily cutting through the armor he wore.
The cut was followed by a blast from Awvoor. The blast nearly singed the wookie's fur, but got right passed him and into the crusader's shoulder.

A crusader fired his blaster at Awvoor, but the blast missed and hit the wall beside him.

Benjamin still stood vigilant, ready for any blast that would come his way.

The combat droid that Kate had attacked raised its other arm and revealed a clawed appendage. With the clawed arm, the combat droid attacked Kate, only to be stopped by Kate's shield generator.

The crusader that both Wrrlwarr and Awvoor had attacked was badly shaken. His armor was cut open and red from his own blood. He dropped his blaster and quickly pulled out his mace in an attempt to hit Wrrlwarr with it. He swung his mace with was much force as he could muster, but he hit nothing but air.

The last crusader fired his blaster at the wookie, but the blast was too far off to hit anything.

Don't hit the droid

Still disappointed with her shooting, she knew she could do better she took aim and fired at the same mandal... again. The wookie had badly damaged the armour, it could be fixed, but she didn't want to if she didn't have to.

Those vibro weapons were affective, but Arruna`dira disliked melee, she was best with pistols, but apparently not as good as she remembered. Half laughing at what she supposed Kate would say next she asked for help.

"Help me with the armour when were done with this Hut'uun slime."

She was impressed with the jedi, she'd avoided them in the past but it would be good to stick close to this one...

Sword number 2

Kate sniffs, unsatisfied with the combat droid before her. Indeed, it appeared as worthless as she had accused it of being.

"Stop trying to hit me and hit me!" Kate catcalls, "Or are you only good for the scrap heap?"

Kate's primary left hand closes around the hilt of her second vibroblade, and she draws it smoothly from its sheath, but despite the appearance that she'd attack with that blade, she doesn't. Instead, she takes the blade in her primary right hand and swings it around, attacking the droid again.

(Move - drawing her second vibroblade, standard - attacking the same droid again)

More of the same...

As it seemed to Benjamin that his unlikely "team" of resistance was likely overcome their foes soon, the Jedi's mind continued to consider the Ithorian's offer.

"Ambassador, I think..." A blast from a combat droid interrupted Benjamin for a moment. Shifting slightly to crouch down, he moved his lightsaber diagnally, bringing the one end down near the Ambassador's head. Absorbing the impact of the laser, Benjamin brought his weight back up to center, pushing the lightsaber forward to redirect the fire back at the droid. The blaster bolt pentrated past the droid shields, hitting it square in the torso.

"Ambassador, I believe that we should soon be ready to move again. What are you thoughts on the doctor's offer?"

[OOC: Benjamin will continue to do more of the same... looking to protect the Ambassador and himself by redirecting fire. Should any of the foes approach their position, Bejamin will engage in melee.]

Round 3

The combat droid raised its blaster to fire upon the Khil embassador again. In the nick of time, Benjamin swung his lightsaber and deflected the blast right back at the droid. The blast penetraited the droid's shield and hit the droids torso.

Arruna'dira fired her blaster at the same Mandalorian Crusader as before. The blast hit the Crusader near the chest. The crusader staggered further back, he would not last much longer.

The Crusader raised his blaster to fire at Arruna'dira, hoping to hit that darn Twi'lek at least once. But the blast was in vain and hit the wall left from Arruna'dira.

Kate drew forth her second vibroblade but attacked the droid with her/its other vibroblade. The blade piercer the combat droid's torso, cutting and sawing through electrical wires and internal parts. The combat droid shook violently before crashing down onto the floor.

Wrrlwarr raised his axe high above his head and brought it down upon the crusader in front of him. The Mandalorian screamed in agony as blood spilt all over from the shoulder that the wookie hit.
At the same time as he did, Awvoor took aim and shot at the same crusader. The blast hit the crusader in the neck and sent him twirling down. The screams stopped as he hit the floor of the corridor.
A Mandalorian Crusader fired his blast at the Jedi, hoping that his blast would count for more than the failure of the droid who fired near that target before. It was a stupid move as Benjamin redirected the blast directly back at the Crusader. It threw him somewhat backwards and he nearly lost his balance.

Benjamin still stood vigilant, successful in warding the embassador from enemy blasts.

The last Crusader looked troubled at what was happening to his comrades. He raised his blaster at Kate and fired upon the droid. The blast crossed passed her/it and ended in the wall.

Kate smiles smugly as the droid falls before her. Scrap metal compared to her; she was well made, after all. However, a blaster shot whizzes by her, bringing her back to reality. Her head turns sharply, taking in her new target.

"Oh? You're next are you?" Kate asks, advancing toward the soldier, "You're worse than that droid."

She quickly brings her vibroswords to bear, bringing them down upon the soldier.

(Moving to the soldier that attacked her, if possible. If not, moving to the closest one. Either a full attack with both vibroswords, if I can, but I doubt it, or a single attack with one vibrosword)

Just die with dignity

That was better, her shot hit the mandal straight in the chest as two of his comrades fell, her blaster needed to be upgraded and fast but she supposed it would do for now.

But despite her best efforts that laser brain was still standing, although she was in much better shape then him, his shots just seemed to career away from her, none ever got close, it was like a kind of blaster bolt deflection field surrounded her. Of cause now she had thought that she was bound to be hit, and probably badly.

She took aim at that damned mandal and pulled the trigger hoping her shot would be true and that it would be that last he would have to endure.

"Best you've got mandal!" she called scathingly.

Round 4

The combat droid raised its blaster and took aim at Awvoor. The blast hit his shoulder and left a nasty wound.

Arruna'dira aimed and fired her blaster at the same crusader, hopefully for the last time. It hit his torso and left a burned mark on the Mandalorian's armor, but the crusader was still standing.

"We are called MANDALORIANS!" he yelled and took aim at the Twi'lek. The blast would have hit if Arruna'dira had not moved out of the way.

Kate moved only slightly to get to the crusader who had been stupid enough to attempt to attack it/her. Her vibroblades swung through the air and cut, teared and sawed through the Mandalorian, leaving two awful wound.

Wrrlwarr swung his vibroaxe at the same target as Kate. The axe cut at the torso and the violent strength of the wookie left the crusader in two parts on the floor.
At that same time, Awvoor had fired his blaster at the same target as Arruna'dira had been in a duel against. It was a lucky shot that hit his throat and sent him staggering back before sending him spiralling to the floor.
And at that same time, another crusader tried to fire his blast at Benjamin, who in turn deflected the blast and sent it hurling towards that very same crusader. The blast hit the Mandalorian's torso and he fell back onto the floor.

Benjamin himself just stood there, vigilant and ready in case any blast would come his way.

Although never under these exact circumstances... The good doctor and his wookie friend had been in far more bitter and far more deadly firefights. This one only happened to be with a high ranking Republic official and a Jedi. And a rogue droid. And a common thug.

They were obviously winning, and it wasn't the time to change tactics now.

He began backing up in between shots, putting less distance between the wall and his back. "We have to make a break for my ship soon, we're running out of time. You all can come, but if you think you're going to fly, twi'lek... you might as well stay here."

lets make a brake for it

"When did I say anything about piloting it!! I just want a way off this ship!"
The twi`lek 'thug' exclaimed firing off what she hoped to be her last shot the remaining combat droid could take as her victim had been taken down for her, she had spent ages trying to get him to talk and just when he did some git went and shot him in the neck.

She couldn't help but feel that the ship was blocked by the droid though... that could be problematic.

Just to finish it off

Arruna'dira's blast hit the droid's head and blasted it off. The droid came crashing down upon the floor much like the junk that it had become.

The corridor was cleared, all the enemies had fallen. The Khil stood up cautiously. "My ship is in a hangar on the other side of the ship," he said. "I do not believe we have time to get there."

The embassador looked at Awvoor. "I would very much appreciate your offer, good sir," he said.

"Then it's settled, grab what you can and let's go."

Awvoor grabbed what loot was handy, with Wrrlwarr doing the same before darting off towards their hanger. Hopefully they didn't lose anyone along the way. They didn't have time to wait.

((OOC: I got bored so I'm moving the plot onward. Post the list of whatever loot you took in the Q&A when you have decided, preferably before you post here again))

As the group make their way through corridors and hallways towards the hangar, they come across only the occasional refugee and Republic soldier. All are frightened and despairing.

At last the group makes its way to a closed blaster door that hides the hangar on the other side. The group comes from either side of the hangar door, with the hallway stretching onwards on the other side, but also branching outwards in front of the door.

Dozen refugees and pilots are stashed on both sides of the door, with several more soldiers trying their best to defend the door from Mandalorians shooting from the branched hallway. Nothing can stand in front of the door without risking a blast into itself, and it appears a stray shot has blown up the control panel for the door, making it impossible to open by normal means.

A squad leader seems to be among the soldiers on the group's side.

Time to shine

After grabbing what off the mandals she could, 3 grenades and 4 blaster pistols, she wasn't really paying attention, she starts towards the hanger as a hurried walk. Upon arriving there she saw a squad of republic soldiers fighting for their lives against a blast door, why didn't they simple go through it? But then it became blindly obvious why they couldn't.

"Great bantha slime, who's running this scrap heap anyway!"
Arruna`dira had seen the door and was approaching the shot panel at an all out run now, this was her field. She might not have a security kit but she had her tool kit and that was all that was needed. When she got close to the door control pannel she started giving the orders.

"Get out the bleeding way, let me to that panel. Embassador, stay by me, Jedi, defend us both or none of us'll survive this mess."
She got out her security kit and started analyzing the best ones for the job, she'd customised this kit, it had everything she could ever need for even the most specialized jobs, even hacking blast doors. How fortunate.

Down on one knee she took the fusion cutter from her tool kit and removed the smashed casing of the panel, it was a mess, no doubt about that. But not beyond it, she hoped, as she began to work.

(OOC: Her total bonus for this is +19 including the bonus for having a mastercraft security kit and she's using her Knack talent which lets her roll twice and take the better result.)
