>> [GM]
>> The dagger effortlessly cuts into the soldier's light armor [Damage:

> [Alex]
> Alex is going to take a second strike with the dagger at the soldier.
> [Strike: 17, Damage: 20MD]
> Does not take pleasure at this but considers it something she has

This dagger strike cuts through the man's armor and deep into his vitals.
He falls to the ground with a moan and tries vainly to reach behind him,
even as a pool of blood appears under him.

She can feel the potency of the Dragonfire sword as she pulls it out.

> [Ted]
> Just to prove his point, Ted engages the nearest soldier unarmed,
> hoping first to disarm him and then trip him with a sweeping leg hook
> before taking his weapon.
> [Strikes: 16 and 20 not natural]
> [/Ted]

The guard attempts to block Ted [Dodge: 14], but Ted manages to knock the
gun out of his hand. The leg hook drops the guard to the ground.

> [Vesper]
> "You don't need to harm them, just throw them into the smoke."
> Vesper said after his portal was open.
> "Portal is open."
> [/Vesper]

> [Alex]
> Once she finishes her first attack, if she can disengage, she will
> jump through the portal. As she sees it, she is fighting to survive
> as well as getting her gear, but there is nothing where she needs
> to win. She just needs to escape.
> [/Alex]

> [Vesper]
> Vesper cast an energy field as a wall to keep the guards away.
> "Sorry gents this isn't about you it is that we aren't into slavery."
> Vesper waited for everyone to get through before he hopped
> through himself.
> [/Vesper]

The two remaining guards open fire. The energy field won't last long under
this barrage.

On the other side of the portal all hell is breaking loose as the leyline
ship has all weapons firing full melee bursts on the New Strathclyde
troops. There is smoke everywhere, but it looks like heavy weapons are
being brought to bear. Oz can just dimly be seen through the haze of smoke,
steam and weapons fire.

Meanwhile, on this side of the portal, more guards are running towards the
remaining members of the company.
