OOC: Sorry about the premature post. That's what I get for trying to
post from a cell phone.

OOC1: Okay, this is the scene so far as I understand it. Ted, Oz and
Ithdalkal are right at the entrance of the building, watching the
cleanerbot "cleaning" a Kydian. Alex, Vesper and Louissa are outside
the building with some of the dwarfs. The rest of the dwarfs are
battling the Splugorth minions trying to buy the company some time to
get into the hoard.

OOC2: I'm assuming everyone follows Ted into the building and that Oz
or Ted will punch the code into the hidden keypad. If someone wishes
to stay behind, let me know.

With Ted in the lead, the company makes their into the hallway. The
cleanerbots are busily cleaning up the mess made by the killing of the
Kydians. It is quite a grisly scene as they cut the Kydian's armor at
the joint, and literally dismember the creatures with small but fairly
powerful lasers.

The Cleanerbots, successfully reprogrammed by Oz, make absolutely no
move against the company, and in fact, don't seem to notice them at
all. Where anyone gets in their way, the robots simply move around

It takes a few moments of probing to find the hidden panel. Meanwhile,
the Splugorth are increasing their onslaught as more troops arrive;
mainly Kydians, but the three Slavers approach as well. The company
may be able to hold them for a few rounds, but not much longer. The
Splugorth seem to have become aware that there are intruders that have
foiled their slave-taking, and now they clearly want to stamp whoever
is messing with their plans.

Skarn's code activates some machinery somewhere in the building, and
moments later there is a thud behind the back door. The door slides
away to reveal a very large elevator, big enough to hold at least four
Wastelander ATVs.

Louissa glances at the elevator and whistles. "I wonder what's down
there that needs this big an elevator."

At that moment, Alex and Vesper see two of the Slaver barges open fire
on the building. The top floor of the building explodes, shaking the
ground. Inside the elevator, despite its size, begins to sway and
creak horribly. The floor itself begins to buckle under their feet.
