Tester-Three versus Cydonian Captain: (2/2 proficiency successes + 1 weapon mod) - (0/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (3 - 0) = 3 damage

OoC:

Shouldn't my "proficiency successes" be out of 3 now not 2?

MM Note: Right you are! I rolled one additional die and you got a 5, so the Captain loses another hit point.

"You three... Would you care to dance?" she laughs, looking ready to lash out again.

"If you were looking for a dance, you should've brought your dancing shoes!" Dunola shouts, casting Elemental Evocation at the captain.

Enson was rather nonplussed at the Captain's attempt at witty banter. It seemed obnoxious and condescending more then anything. Still, no point in telling her.

Enson will use his Energy Cell and attack the Cydonian Captain.

Taken by surprise that the Captain just magically teleported right next him, Igaz focuses on her.

"You're still too alive to share a dance with me."

Igaz plays with some controls on his armor and activates his Shield Booster and attacks the Captain.

MM Note: @Classic_Spaceman, is everything alright?

Boss Fight, Round Two

Agent Turn:
>Kleeck rallies Yelana!
>Igaz uses a shield booster and strikes at the Cydonian Captain: (1/2 proficiency successes + 1 weapon mod) - (1/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (2 - 1) = 1 damage
>Yelana versus Cydonian Cloak Trooper B: (1/2 proficiency successes + 1/2 rally successes + 1 weapon mod) - (1/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (3 - 1) = 2 damage
>Enson crushes an Energy Cell and strikes at the Cydonian Captain:  (2/2 proficiency successes + (1*2) = 2 weapon mod) - (0/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (4 - 0) = 4 damage
>Tester-Three pops a Plasma Potion: 3 health restored!
>Dunola casts Elemental Evocation on the Cydonian Captain: (2/4 Arcana successes checks) - (DC 1) = (2 - 1) = 1 damage.

Enemy Turn:
>Cloak Trooper A casts Quantum Transposition on Cydonian Captain to move her to C5: (3/3 proficiency successes) - (DC 1) = 2 over the DC... the teleportation spell is successful.
>Cydonian Captain versus Kleeck: (3/4 proficiency successes + 1 weapon mod) - (1/3 skill successes + 2 armor from Warding Bond) = 1 damage.
>Cloak Trooper B uses a Plasma Potion on the Captain: 5 HP restored!

The agents manage to further wear down the two Troopers, but fail to fully subdue the Captain. Dunola's fireball flies across the room, but the Captain reacts and slices through it with her pike, dispelling the flames. In the resulting cloud of smoke, she vanishes, and re-appears - stabbing at Kleeck with enough force to shatter the arcane forcefield surrounding him, and drawing blood. Now the other half of the party had that menace to deal with. Thankfully, the other two troopers were running out of magic.

Enson was worried. Not only had they failed to stop the captain, but it almost seemed as if they hadn't accomplished anything. And now his most vulnerable companions were in danger. He thought for a moment,. The spell the Cydonians were using was one he was theoretically familiar with, to the point where he could more-or-less recall how to cast it with a little effort. The problem was that he'd never attempted anything like that before and he wasn't as familiar with it as he'd like to be. Still, he couldn't afford to wait and see what happened.

Enson will cast Quantum Transposition on Dunola, moving her to A4.

Oh. . . Uh, Hi. Nice move - Still never caught your name. . .
This isn't ending well for us, is it? I didn't think so. If we're going to die, I'd like to know why - What's the 'Great Sovereign', and why's it so important?

OoC: In Yelana's interaction with the Cydonian Captain, the underlined text is a Deception check (If the Captain thinks that Yelana expects to die, she may provide more information about the Great Sovereign).

That might not work. You go after me in the battle order so if I teleport you like I'm planning the trooper will be outside your range by the time you attack.

I can't do that. Teleporting an enemy requires you to beat a DC of three and my Religion skill is only two at the moment. Also, I'm pretty sure Endgame has issued a moratorium on the use of skill checks in combat for now. And even if he hadn't I don't think you be able to do one and take another action in the same turn.

"We all die without answers in the end, don't we? The Great Sovereign is the leader of the Collective, the one who resides above the High Adjudicator and the rest of the Knights of Cydonia. That you were allowed to know. But to try to glimpse the Sovereign... Well, you already know where that has landed you."

I suppose. . . Have you ever seen the Great Sovereign, or is it considered heresy for even Cydonians to look at it?

Kleeck shoots at the captain from his current position. He sighs. Talking was much more in line with his skills. Combat was just going to get them into heaps of trouble. He wondered who else they might run afoul.

MM Note: Seeing as Obfuscate isn't possible to cast for Yelana, I'll just have her fire off a shot for now.

QNB5zZ5.png
"A select caste may know the Sovereign's name. And even fewer may see his image. And fewer than that may have audience. Whether you die here or not, you'll never get to tread near him..."

Boss Fight, Round Three

Agent Turn:
>Kleeck versus Cydonian Captain: (1/1 proficiency successes + 2 weapon mod) + (1/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (3 - 1) = 2 damage to the Cydonian Captain.
>Igaz versus Cydonian Cloak Trooper A: (1/2 proficiency successes + 1 weapon mod) - (1/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (2 - 1) = 1 damage to Cydonian Cloak Trooper A.
>Yelana versus Cydonian Captain: (1/2 proficiency successes + 1 weapon mod) - (0/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (2 - 0) = 2 damage to the Cydonian Captain
>Enson tries to cast Quantum Transposition to move Dunola to A4: (0/2 Religion successes) - (DC 1) = (0 - 1) = -1... the spell fails.
>Tester-Three versus Cydonian Trooper A: (3/3 proficiency successes + 1 weapon mod) - (0/1 skill successes + 0 armor) = (4 - 0) = 4 damage - the Cydonian Cloak Trooper goes down!
>Dunola casts Elemental Evocation on Cydonian Cloak Trooper B: (4/4 proficiency successes) - (DC 1 + 0 armor) = (4 - 1) = 3 damage

Enemy Turn:
>Cydonian Captain versus Kleeck: (2/4 proficiency successes + 1 weapon mod) - (2/3 skill successes) = 1 damage.
>Cloak Trooper B crushes an energy cell and fires at Kleeck: (1/1 proficiency successes + (1*2) = 2 weapon mod) = (2/3 skill successes + 0 armor) = (3 - 2) = 1 damage.

Another flurry of shots staggers the Captain. Enson tries to teleport Dunola to safety, but finds himself unable. As this occurs, Tester-Three makes good on his promise of inevitable death, and puts a hole in the first Cloak Trooper. His armor beeps as his vital signs drop to zero, and a directed charge goes off, vaporizing the trooper's body. Some of his scorched armor, and some of his possessions, clatter to the ship's floor. It seems that their armor was built to not only conceal, but to destroy as much evidence as it possibly could. Now, the only major thing left of the man was his dented helmet.

K57Lm7n.png
"No!"

QNB5zZ5.png
"...Tch."

The remaining two troopers try to topple Kleeck, but luck is not in their favor, and the skillful Ornithun resists their assault.

The conflict continues!

@KotZ, @Kintobor, @Lord Duvors, @Goliath, @Classic_Spaceman, @samurai-turtle: we're probably only a round away, so get your actions in quick and we can get this fight wrapped up! :classic:

Enson frowned in annoyance as his spell failed. He hadn't expected any better but it was still irritating. Taking a moment to examine the situation he realized that Kleeck was dangerously close to death. Gritting his teeth he once again tried to reach out through the ether, though this time trying for a different effect.

Enson will cast Healing Light on Kleeck.

Sorry to do this, but the original post makes it clear that the image was purely mental. There wouldn't be anything to record.:sceptic:
