The first fishman manages to dodge [Dodge: Natural 20], but Carlos
manages to land a shot against the other [Damage: 40MD].  The
shot seems to do some damage, because the fishman stops moving
and begins floating like a wounded guppy.

The other three race for cover.

Talas attempts to spray the other three before they can find a place
to hide [Strike: 5, Hits: 1 target].

Talas's almost hits one of the fishmen [Dodge: 10], but otherwise goes
wide, striking one of the spheres and doing some marginal damage
to it.  Unfortunately, the three are now hiding behind the spheres, and out
of sight.

Talas signals to Carlos that he's going to try to sneak up behind them.
With that he extinguishes his Globe of Daylight and disappears into
the dark waters behind the nearest sphere.

Carlos is now on his own, his way lit only by his own suit light.  He
is about half way, when he sees some flashes from behind one
of the spheres.  One of the fishmen suddenly leaps out directly in
front of him, a vibroblade in hand...
