OOC: Don't know where everybody went, but I'll carry on with the couple of
posts I got.

OOC: I'm going to play a little fast and loose with this because not
everyone's taking part.

Lady Frost strikes out at the approaching soldiers.  Three are hit in rapid
succession, flying backwards from the power of Lady Frost's strike.

A forth fires at Lady Frost, and Lady Frost is unable to dodge.  The shot
hits her in the chest.  Overhead the Skycycles, now identifying her as what
appears to be one of the primary targets, begins bearing down on her, while
the others chase after Kyle.

Kyle finds two Skycycles moving in on him as he tries to regroup with the
rest of the company.  One of the Skycycles breaks off and begins harrying
the rest of the group, firing randomly to try to get them to stop.  One shot
narrowly misses Angelica, while another blows a hole in the concrete right
behind Alex.

Rod and Phaeton have not crawled out of the collapsed road.  Ted and Arden
are lying on the road, when suddenly Arden jumps up, screams and a glowing
knife suddenly appears in his hand.

"You shall die, so that you cannot serve She!" Arden shouts in a booming,
demonic voice, and then plunges the knife down...
