Let's try this again... Quintus quietly says to himself. Taking aim he readies the shot at the machine gunner, only to find that it also fails to hit the target. Ducking down to one knee, he quickly inspects his weapon for any malfunction. Realizing that the equipment was sound, a sense of annoyance grasped him fully.

Taking in a deep breath, he tells himself to relax. Everything seemed to be going well so far, but that was before the machine gun got online. Now it seemed like a race to survive, and it somehow managed to stir Quintus. Regardless, he aims his weapon back on target.

I'm not going to miss again...

Assault rifle shots splintered off his shields before striking the armour, making Gauron give a small huff as his breath briefly caught in his throat. No matter how many times you took a round to the chest, even mostly absorbed, it still hurt. Seeing the machine-gun swing around made him automatically turn to face it as well.

Shouldn't have made yourself a target, Sunshine...

Sighting down the barrel of his assault rifle, he let off a carefully-timed burst as opposed to the other Batarian spraying fire all over the place.

Torne lets another shot fly and hits his target in the neck after blasting straight through his shields. The batarian quickly collapses in his seat, but the damage the round did isn't pretty. Athkros and Quintus both fire at the machine gunner and miss, but Vydd manages to hit the target with his pistol. The batarian, hit squarely in the chest, slumps over leaving the gun unmanned. Suddenly without a target, Gauron nonetheless has no trouble adjusting his aim and shooting one of the pistol-wielding batarians in the head.

The remaining batarian in the truck panics and drops his pistol but has the presence of mind to make a run for the machine gun. "Get us out of here!" you hear him call as he readies the machine gun. The driver obliges him by jamming his foot onto the accelerator. The truck accelerates slowly, but it's still fast enough to take the truck sixty more meters away from you towards the ship [ending its turn at a distance of 60 squares from you]. The remaining batarian, who foolishly hopped off the truck only seconds before, fires off another burst from his rifle but his shots fly high. With nothing between you and him anymore he decides to dive for cover.

Meanwhile, the second truck powers past you. The batarian leader mans the machine gun and fires at you while the batarian in the passenger's seat fires his pistol at Torne. The machine gun is only minimally effective, hitting everyone but Athkros for just seven damage while the drell manages to duck the shots completely. The pistol fire likewise goes wild, doing nothing. "Stop!" you hear the stranded batarian call as the truck passes by. To the driver's credit he does stop directly in between you and his fellow, and you see the batarian get up and start his climb into the truck.

Torne Takes up his assault rifle and aims down its sights towards the fleeing Bartarian, a harder shot so he takes his time for a single shot as he counts in his head until he makes his last step he calls out. GOODNIGHT!

Attack: 26 (natural 20)
Damage: 32

Vydd lets out a shriek from the hit. He clutches where the bullet hit with his left hand and fire at the driver in the closest vehicle with the other.

It seems the batarians are fleeing, but Athkros sees no reason to run the risk of them calling for reinforcements once they reach their vessel. And in any case, the krogan and the C-sec human seem to be having no trouble cleaning up the immediate threats. Dropping his assault rifle, the drell pulls out his sniper rifle to take a shot at the fleeing batarians. However, the vehicle is moving somewhat erratically and his shot flies wide of its intended target.

Seeing that the fleeing truck was already being targetted, Gauron swung his assault rifle around at the driver of the second truck and Attack Roll: 18 - Damage Roll: 15squeezed off a burst at him, not wanting the second one to start its getaway.

Following the example of Gauron, Quintus aims toward the second truck, hoping that gathering the Baatarian will slow it enough for a sound shot. Inhaling, he takes aim and fires.

Both trucks stop as bullets hit their drivers in the head. Without their helmets on there's no way for suck a hit to end but messy, and before the trucks can be started back up again the remaining batarians are gunned down by the team.

The battlefield has been torn apart, though the fight lasted mere seconds. With the batarians utilizing so much automatic weapons fire the first cases behind you have been shot up pretty good, though to their credit it looks like they managed to disperse the energy of the shots well enough to protect their contents. Twelve batarians, mostly contained in their trucks, are slumped over either dead or unconscious and rapidly bleeding to death. Looking their weapons over you aren't impressed: you left much better weapons behind in the shipping container, and your own weapons are better still.

Several hundred meters away sits the batarians' ship, its landing ramp still down. Only twenty meters or so long it seems small compared to the gently rolling landscape. The ship probably wouldn't even have taken all twelve batarians to crew it, though given the poor state of repair of their weapons maybe the ship had more severe maintenance concerns than a ship that had been taken better care of.

Torne moved through the corpses until he notices then ship he calls out to the group. I'll check out the ship.

As he moved up to the ship be began to look over it, noticing no problems with the ship's external he runs into the ship and begins to look over the panels and the cockpit especially.

Pilot check for checking the ship's controls: 21 (with modifier)

Vydd starts checking the batarians vital signs starting with the one with the helmet. When he see's the others heading toward the ship he calls out. Hey, If you get a chance try to contact the Way's End.

Athkros packs up his sniper rifle but keeps his assault rifle out just in case. He follows the krogan to the foot of the batarian vessel and is about to offer to scout out the interior when Torne bulls straight up the ramp. There's no holding this one back, the drell mentally sighs. Assault rifle at the ready, he follows Torne into the ship. "Check for comms," he calls out to the krogan, relaying the quarian's suggestion in case the hard-headed krogan didn't hear.

Torne begins to look around the cockpit for a working communication device, he calls back Athkros.


Give me a second these controls look somewhat different than most ships.

Torne barrels up the ramp and finds himself in a small cargo bay, just large enough for the two trucks side by side. Athkros cautiously follows him up as he steps on the hatch to the power core and opens the door into the central hall. Ahead of him is a door that likely leads up to the main area of the ship, with living quarters and the engines. To his right he sees a ladder that leads up, to the cockpit.

Strapping his weapon to his side for the moment the krogan climbs the ladder and finds himself in a small, claustrophobic cockpit. The "seats", if you can call them that, are side-by-side; they're really more benches than seats though, as they require the user to lie on their chest. Torne sees the tell-tale signs of a gunner being placed on the bench to the right: rather than the standard yoke-form control column on the left the right features a pair of control sticks linked to one central column, and the view screen isn't set up for 3D image generation.

Torne takes a step closer to the controls and the holographic projection of a VI appears directly in front of him. The VI is batarian, light purple, and wearing a scowl. "No slaves in the cockpit," it says gruffly to Torne. "Even if they are krogan."

OCC: Sorry misread the post.

Torne irritated at the VI, looks over the panels looking for a mute or disconnection cord so he can continue to do a full diagnostic.

before doing so he looks at the VI and says. I want a full report on your operating systems and whom holds your passwords.

Torne leans down and calls out to the group. Check the leader's body for cards or anything special. This thing has a VI and its safe to assume its code locked...And it doesn't like me.

He then walks up to the controls and proceeds to switch some devices and overlooks the controls to work out how to pilot the ship.
