OOC: No one, other than the "girl" is immobilized or heavily injured.

"Maybe..." Louissa says as she pulls herself out of the vehicle.

The crowd is getting closer, and it looks like some of them have
picked up some weapons. A couple of energy rifle bursts melt the paint
on the SUV.

"Give us the girl!" they shout. "Give us the girl and you can go free!"

The girl is still there, and still unconscious.

> [Ted]
> Ted will right the vehicle as quickly as he can.
> [/Ted]

Ted's super-strength is more than enough to tip the vehicle back over.
Other than some scrapes, and a few points of damage where the energy
rifle fire hit the vehicle, it looks good.

And just in the nick of time. Out from around the tent where Ted and
Louissa had stolen this ATV, another nearly identical ATV races out,
someone hastily manning the railgun and aiming it at the company.

"Anyone else want to drive?" Louissa shouts.
