Seein that most of the fishmen in the control pod have been either  
incapacitated or are just cowering for their lives, Koba will sling  
the rifle and pull out the pistol before dropping into the middle of  
the control pod (ooc: if he can't control the levitation spell that  
put him up there he will control the drop with the jet pack) Once at  
the controls he will shoot any remaining armed guards but leave any  
unarmed to run for their lives. Once at the controls he will attempt  
to gain access to the computer reactor controls and any sensors for  
the area.

>>> [GM]
>>> Raven's first grenade lands perfectly in the center of the fishmen  
>>> she has
>>> adhered to the floor [Damage: 28MD].  The blast strikes them even  
>>> harder
>>> as the carpet of adhesion stops the bodies from flying away with  
>>> the blast,
>>> breaking limbs in the process.  The second lands among three other
>>> fishmen [Damage: 15MD], tossing them.
>>> There is general chaos in the chamber.  Between the explosions and  
>>> the
>>> tear gas-cum-toxic gas, the armed fishmen are looking for good  
>>> cover to

>> [Ted]
>> Ted switched to his internal oxygen supply before leaping up to the

> [GM]
> As quick as lightning, the lizard man moves across beams, pipes and

> Still, he is not invisible, and a few of the fishmen guards, seemingly

> the other goes wide.

>> [Alex]
>> Alex watches the creatures in agony. They did attack her so she  
>> does not
>> feel much pity. If any others look like they want to attack, she will
>> fire back otherwise she will stay on guard.

> One of the fishmen manages to leap for cover [Dodge: Natural 20], but
> the other four are hit [Damage: 50MD, 30MD, 120MD - dd, 30MD].  The

>> [Koba]
>> With his new perch on top of the pipes, Koba hopes he will not be
>> attracting too much attention. He will move quickly across the pipes
>> until he is just above the central control panel or as close as the
>> pipes will take him.
>> ~How damaged do we want these reactors?  I can try for disabled or
>> "REALLY disabled"~ Koba passes telepathically to the rest of the  
>> group as
>> he counts up the fusion blocks he now has in his sack.
>> [/Koba]
>> [Raven]
>> Raven thought back, 'Really damaged. Let's give them something to  
>> worry

>> into the
>> fishmen.  [Strikes: 20 - not natural, 16]
>> [/Raven]
> OOC: I don't know how liberal Raven's player wants to be with

> [GM]
> The grenades streak towards the remaining armed fishmen who attempted

> grenade takes out one of the would-be attackers, the other attacker
> is knocked off his feet.  The second grenade hits one of the barrels,
> and within moments a large explosion rocks the whole chamber.  Lights
> flicker and a cloud of rubble, dust, toxic gas and body parts fills a
> chunk of the chamber.
> [/GM]
> [Lyle]
> Lyle fires on any stragglers [Strikes: 24, 9, 11, 18].  All four shots
> make contact with fishmen, two hitting them in the relatively  
> unprotected
> neck area [Damage: 17MD, 21MD] and blowing their heads off, and the
> other two [Damage: 20MD, 19MD] have their armor heavily damaged.
> [/Lyle]
> OOC: Hope Owen's player approves...
> [Owen]
> Owen fires at the remaining visible armed fishmen [Strikes: 12 and  
> 15].
> [/Owen]
> [GM]
> The two bursts hit both the fishmen [13MD and 25MD], killing one of  
> them
> and all but obliterating the armor on the other.
> [/GM]
>> [Koba]
>> As he moves closer to the central control core, Koba peers through  
>> the
>> rifle scope at the fishmen at the controls. He will fire an aimed  
>> shot
>> at the head of any armed D-Bees.  [Strikes: 16 and 15]
>> [/Koba]
> [GM]
> There are currently two armed fishmen visible in the control room.
