[Round 1]

[Flying Creature #1]
Talas's spell hits the creature's head dead-on, and its eyes are
literally stuck shut.
It begins to fly very erratically, and is clearly confused.  It
screams loudly, but can
do little else.
[/Flying Creature #1]

[Flying Creature #2]
The second flying creature notices the distress of its companion, and picks up
its speed, trying to move in front of the ailing one in an attempt to
shield it.  It
still manages to fire an energy bolt from its eyes [Strike: 13] at Carlos's
[/Flying Creature #2]

Carlos easily dodges the energy bolt [Dodge: 16], and in turn fires one of
his mini-missiles [Strike: 11].

[Flying Creature #2]
The flying creature barely dodges the missile [Dodge: 12].
[/Flying Creature #2]

> [Koba]
> With the party ready to head out Koba takes a minute of concentration before
> a crackling blue aura surrounds him giving off a strange crackling of
> lightning and energy. As Talas and Carlos head off on the skycycle, Koba
> fires up the jetpack and heads on a parallel course as low as he can until
> he is well within rifle range. As the two flying creatures head towards the
> Skycycle, Koba pulls up out of the shrubs and lets loose with a burst at the
> nearest creature trying to split up the two. [Strike: 17]
> [/Koba]

[Flying Creature #2]
The closest flying creature, being completely blind, is unaware it even needs
to dodge, and Koba's shot hits it [Damage: 90MD].  The shot leaves visible
injuries on its body, and it banks sharply away from the source of the shock
and heads northward at stunning speeds, in apparent retreat, leaving only
its companion.
[/Flying Creature #2]

OOC: And on to round 2.
