>> [Louissa]
>> "Anyone else want to drive?" Louissa shouts.

Ted misses, the rail gun fire shredding the tent that the ATVs had
been parked in instead.

> [Alex]
> Alex loads a tear gas grenade into her grenade launcher, "Make a dog leg."
> As soon as the window of the vehicle is revealed, she fires a tear gas

> [/Alex]

Alex's shot does significantly better. The tear gas canister makes it
through the window and bursts inside the vehicle. All of a sudden the
inside of the vehicle becomes a cloud of white gas. The vehicle veers
and then crashes into a wood pile, the driver and two other people
leaping out, coughing and hacking.

> [Vesper]
> Secures things on the inside of the vehicle. Also maintaining watch on the
> girl.
> [/Vesper]

The girl remains unconscious, but if Vesper's eyes are not mistaken,
her wounds are quickly healing.

Louissa shrugs. "Alright, I guess I'm still driving." She hops back
into the drivers seat and restarts the ATV, and steers at moderate
speeds [OOC: 35mph] towards the pile of stones that had been pointed
out to her.

She slows down as the ATV approaches the wall of mist.

"Okay!" she says. "Somebody said something about a flashlight or
lantern or torch or something. I was unconscious when they brought me
here, so I have no idea."

As she speaks, the party hears a distant series of explosions that
sound a lot like heavy weapons fire, followed by what sounds like a
large amount of rock and dirt collapsing in a landslide. The direction
is impossible to tell, however.
