Rod feels the reassuring protection of his armor appear.

The sailor attempts to parry the blow but fails.  Rod's TK Hammer comes down
on the man's hand.  The man's arm is literally flung down and back at a
horribly wrong angle.  The man drops his vibrosword and screams out in pain.

The swordsman attempts to parry but cannot catch Osiris's sword, and it
tries to plunge into the swordsman's armor.  Again, the swordsman's armor is
scored, and again he laughs, jumping on to the railing of the stairway and
trying to slide down it and make a slash at Osiris's swordarm.  Osiris
attempts in turn to parry, and fails, and the man's sword cuts deep into
Osiris's swordarm armor.

Now, it seems, the swordsman is on the offensive.  If there's anything good
from this, it's that a loud explosion followed by some awful-sounding
grinding seems to indicate that Kyle has dealt with the anti-aircraft gun.
