[Combat Round #2]

Looking over at the walls of the dwarf settlement, there are not yet signs
that the Splugorth minion occupiers have seen them yet. But there is line of
sight to at least part of the wall, so it might not be much longer [OOC: a
round or two] before their action has been spotted.

> [Ted]
> Ted quickly disarms his victim while looking the Kydian's armor over for

> [/Ted]

A quick check finds three energy rifles, two vibroblades and five concealed
grenades (of what variety Ted can't identify).

Ithdalkal leaps on the Kydian she knocked to the deck, vibro-knife in hand
and proceeds to turn its face into pulp [Strike: 15, Damage: 6MDC]. It's not
a pretty sight.

Back on the ship, the Sergeant keeps his eye out for any more targets, but
continues to hold his fire.

Louissa, now unsure what to do, looks with some horror at Ithdalkal's
savagery. "I guess that proves she doesn't like Splugorth anymore." she

Alex takes aim at the exposed face of the Kydian on the ground below the
platform and fires [Damage: 34MD], blowing much of its head off.

By the time Vesper gets there, Alex has already blown much of its head off.

At the end of the second combat round, two Kydians [#2 and #3] are dead. Ted
has disarmed Kydian #1 and Kydian #4 remains caught in Vesper's net.

Vesper is now on the ground below the platform.

Oz is surveying the occupied dwarf settlement to see if the Splugorth
minions there are aware of the combat. They don't seem to be yet, but it
cannot be much longer before they are.

Ithdalkal is under orders to kill all but one of the Kydians. The Kydian
that Ted has disarmed [Kydian #1] is closest to her, so if not
countermanded, she likely go after that one.

Back beyond the clearing, the dwarfs await the company's signal to proceed.

The GM considers this combat over.
