Stardate 2271.3.24: 1624h

The Janus is due to rendezvous in orbit at 1800.

Image

Dr. Ryerson ponders over the party's tricorders, trying to come up with alternative ways of tracking the target. A science tricorder would be best suited to his proposal, but he could probably make do with his medical tricorder if he took two or ten minutes to reconfigure it. After that it should only take a couple of attempts to be able to pinpoint with fair accuracy the direction and distance of his phantom target.

Nadix leads the party northeast through the streets and between buildings, opening his alien mind to the ancient, mysterious device in his hands. Soon he can feel his mental faculties flooded with connective energy, as though the object's computer readings are being passed directly into his brain!

Endilev barks out impatiently, "Well, what are we waiting for? She needs to be stopped!" He clutches his plasma gun menacingly.

He listens, and the Rod of Life tells him, "The other Slaver objects are due south." Unfortunately he cannot determine the distance to the objects, only the direction. He relays this information to the party, and the ensigns stand alert with their phasers trained to the south.

Actions?



Rolls:
Nadix MN check (14): [4d6] = 13
Nadix gains more direct directional knowledge of the Romulan Commander's position

Commander Nadix Ar Eth, Science Officer:

"Patience, my friend," Nadix gently counsels the fiery Andoran. Then, in a whisper: "The Rod of Life can track her.
"This way, gentleman. Be on your guard. She could be anywhere,"
he says, golden eyes wide, phaser ready in his third hand as he leads the party due south in accordance with the telepathic readings from the mysterious artifact of the Slaver Empire.

Dr. Ryerson:

The doctor stops fiddling with his tricorder and double checks the setting on his phaser as he move south with the group.

Coxa II: Showdown in the Coxan Village
Stardate 2271.3.24: 1625h

The Janus is due to rendezvous in orbit at 1800.

Image

The party moves south through the abandoned and decimated village, led by Nadix's psychomental link with the Rod. All round ripped awning canvases flap in the dusty wind, while the village's two massive windmills groan overhead.

Soon it is clear that the Slaver objects are within the building directly before them. It is then that a foreign noise is recognized amid the desolate soundscape: there, perched once again behind a low wall on the building's roof 20 meters distant, the Romulan Commander is already charging her plasma gun! The weapon shakes violently in her hands, its emitter glowing red hot and leveled right at you!

Actions?

Re: viewtopic.php?p=347419#p347419

The party notices several places nearby usable as cover:

The is a single low wall that can provide six 1/4th's of cover (e.g., one character can take full cover and one 1/2 cover, or two at 3/4 cover, etc). It looks sturdy as a rock (20 pts of cover).

There are multiple crates, barrels and the like scattered about, enough for everyone to hide behind one. Each will only provide 1/2 cover, and is much weaker (2d6 pts of cover only).

There is a large alien-looking rock sitting conspicuously in the road. It provides a total of four 1/4's of cover.

At a full run, anyone who wins initiative can dash north, back across the street, and dive into the building.

Commander Nadix Ar Eth, Science Officer:

Seeing the plasma pistol ready to discharge, the Edosian cries, "Take cover!" He races for the building, allowing the landing party to seek shelter behind the nearby barriers.

After diving for cover, Nadix concentrates again on the Rod of Life. He attempts to use it to telepathically deactivate the Romulan Commander's personal transporter device, to prevent her escape!


Initiative: [1d6+4] = 5+4 = 9

Dr. Ryerson:

The doctor makes a break for the closest and largest piece of cover he can find. He puts his back to it and looks around to see the other team member's choices. He takes a moment to note the best routes to each member in case his skills are needed.

Coxa II: Showdown in the Coxan Village
Stardate 2271.3.24: 1625.2h

The Janus is due to rendezvous in orbit at 1800.

Image

The landing party scatters in all directions and takes cover as the Romulan Commander rains molten death from on high!



Nadix and Endilev both turn and sprint back toward the safety of the building to the north. They each dive through the doorway and come up on either side, peering out on the scene through the open windows.

Ryerson dives behind the large rock and watches as two of the ensigns leap behind their own cover, behind the low wall and a piece of flimsy debris.

The third ensign, however, stands directly in the open, too impulsive to think about his own safety. With both hands he grips his phaser pistol and points it straight up at the Romulan, firing a powerful burst of energy that sparks off the wall, missing its mark. With calm precision, the Commander levels her overcharged weapon and releases a massive plasma bolt at the ensign, incinerating him instantly!

Image

After setting himself up at the window, Nadix holds the Rod of Life meaningfully and attempts to direct its energies against the devices being used by the Romulan Commander. The strange contraption in his hands seems almost to send visions to him, allowing him to see with his mind's eye the Slaver helmet and belt being used by the Commander: the helmet's store of energy is weak, even failing—every use of its psionic abilities might deplete its power for good—but he realizes that the Rod alone cannot interfere with the operation of either device.

Ryerson begins to ready his medical kit, but soon clenches his fist in frustration and dismay. He knows without a doubt that the poor ensign struck by the enemy's weapon is beyond help, his body dissolving into smoke and ashes within seconds.

Ensign Patel cowers behind the low wall, still unaware of his surroundings. The other surviving ensign makes a desperate run from his poor cover and hurls himself behind the wall with Patel, hoping he wasn't seen.

Chief Endilev and the Romulan Commander both begin to charge their plasma guns. "Long live the Romulan Star Empire!" yells the Commander, her eyes wide with pride and bloodlust.

Commander Nadix Ar Eth, Science Officer:

"Fire phasers on disrupt, while her pistol is recharging! Aim for her helmet!" Nadix cries as he desperately fires his phaser at the Slaver artifact atop the Romulan Commander's head.


Initiative: [1d6+4] = 2+4 = 6, Phaser to hit: [1d6-4] = 4-4 = 0

Coxa II: Showdown in the Coxan Village
Stardate 2271.3.24: 1626h

The Janus is due to rendezvous in orbit at 1800.

Image

(3 rounds in this one, lots fire traded back and forth!)

Wordlessly, the surviving crew members set their phasers to disrupt as ordered and fire on the enemy! Hot beams of destruction whip about the village, blasting smoking holes into the crenelations that the Romulan Commander is using for cover!

Image

Fearless of death, the Romulan Commander calmly takes aim at her chosen target: the two nearest to her, the rifle-armed ensigns who are using the low street wall for cover. Ensign Patel stares down the barrel of her exotic weapon, hypnotized by the ball of plasma about to be released his way…

Image

When out of nowhere a phaser shot strikes out near her face! Nadix's carefully aimed shot is dissipated by the strength of her combat belt's personal energy field, but the upset is enough to spoil her aim and the plasma charge goes wide, exploding into the ground behind Ensign Patel.

Frustrated, the Romulan Commander ducks behind cover to recharge her weapon, and Chief Endilev—whose unfamiliarity with this new weapon has caused his own plasma shots to miss widely—takes the opportunity to run back into the street, toward the large rock hiding Dr. Ryerson, in the hope of getting closer to his target.

However, mere moments before Endilev can reach the safety of the rock, the Romulan Commander resurfaces to deliver another deadly fireball, this time at him! The feisty Andorian is struck hard and flies to the ground, hurt and bleeding. The Doctor has to provide covering fire to give him time to crawl up to safety!

Image

Phaser fire continues to light up the street, and more well placed shots from Nadix and Ryerson cut through the Commander's shields completely, causing her moderate wounds and leaving her exposed as her force field sizzles and buckles. Beams strike her strange helmet, but the angle must be poor and they glance off harmlessly.

Meanwhile, Engineering Chief Endilev crawls up to the rock and peers out with his charging plasma weapon ready to kill, despite his wounds!





He sends his plasma ball flying and it strikes the exposed and wounded Commander square in the chest! The great explosion sends her flying, and dramatically she reels forward off the roof and drops onto a pair of barrels on the ground! It is clear to all that the Romulan Commander's time has come.

Commander Nadix Ar Eth, Science Officer:

"Excellent work, gentlemen. Your bravery is to be commended," Nadix says, relieved that the landing party has suffered no further casualties in the firefight.

The alien officer approaches the fallen Romulan Commander to impassively disarm her, collect the Slaver Artifacts, and hear her last words.
