Panic hits the crowd as gunfire erupts and the demonic monster vanishes from sight. Karsh
's tromping and armed weapons systems to help matters. He is easily able to follow the Brodkil's path on his infrared scanners as the creature lands in the parking lot and weaves its way through the vehicles there. The pistons on its legs retract and he dodges behind a Big Boss ATV, which is the last Karsh sees of him for the moment.
feels magic wash over him for a second just after he fires off his shot, the Brodkil vanishes, then Karsh steps in front talking, then there's a pulse of psionics as a nearby burster summons a bolt of fire into her hand! There's only been a couple of times in Rex's life where so many different things happened at once and most of them ended with somebody dying. Usually a member of his pack. Rex is well trained so the urge to open fire on the spellcaster and burster is strong, but Rex also know that these people might be friends now. Either way, Rex is is very startled in the first round and a little more edgy than before. As he stands up and spins around to scan for the demon, the panic ebbs a bit as he see the burster and mage have taken up positions where they would offer cover fire for him and Karsh.
**What was your action? Rex's shot was before initiative since you were holding your first action.**
After casting his spell, Morgan
runs across the street past Fae'lin and takes refuge in an alley across from the parking lot, getting out his rifle and pointing towards the Brodkil's path. Just a few buildings down Jane
presses against a wall of her own, nervously looking both directions and hoping that she doesn't have to use the pistol she's drawn against energy hungry psi-stalkers. She may have masked her powers but a stalker in a rush can drain anyone's PPE!
holds her bolt of fireready in her hand, but realizes that she may have to make it stronger. The demon barely reacted to the shot from the dog boy's energy rifle and he is wearing armor... if she hopes to harm the creature she would need the power of a plasma bolt.
**The listing in RUE for a Heavy bolt is 6D6 SDC, if you just pump two more ISP into it then you can go ahead and make it into a plasma bolt if you'd like**
The psi-hound's only response to Karsh is a grateful look in his eyes, he lays on the ground in a small heap, to exhausted to talk. As Pedro runs up and speaks a language unknown to Dark Energy
, some of the psi-hound's wounds heal a bit and the swelling aroun its eye goes down. Dark Energy knew that Pedro was a priest but he hadn't gotten to see him actually use magic before, he supposed you had to take the good with the bad when it came to this world's magics. Dark Energy is grateful for the intervention of the others as well, after seeing how that enrgy blast didn't seem to faze the monster. Though it doesn't scare him, he's beginning to realize the kind of trouble he could have been walking into had he faced that creature alone. Pedro smiles up at Dark Energy as he finishes rolling the psi-hound over,
"I'll take care of him, help your new friends take care of that monster before it hurts more innocents."
**Now we go to your guys' second actions of the melee round. Feel free to declare multiple actions in the order you're doing them or hold actions, it's much easier to keep track of with the stuff I've got set up in POST ONE
