Coriolis IC: THROUGH THE DARKNESS

Zenith heralded the dawn of a new era – and the Horizon blossomed once again. Three dozen star systems, linked by fate and by the will of the Icons, wandered together towards a brighter future. But as the Emissaries arrived, the happy days drew to a close, and the Dark between the Stars slowly came creeping back.

Amir rolls his eyes, then speaks into the comm. "Fayaz, that suit isn't even occupied, it's being remotely controlled. The suit in the charging station is the one with an actual person in it, although they seem to have some sort of power tool in their hand, so maybe don't get within lunging distance."

Zaynab turns to the occupied suit, while not moving any closer to it. "We're being paid to rescue you. If we're to go back empty-handed, we at least need to know what happened. So can you please tell us?"
Empathy 3 + Manipulate 0: Okoros is down and Rolz won't format links properly--but on Rolz I got 6, 6, 2: 2 successes.

"Is this some kind of trick? I don't trust you... Paid by who? Melem Gesurra, the Captian, the Djinn?" He stammers.

"We brought something out of the ice... Pods, stasis pods, that damn fool Rajtun opened one of them and then it all went wrong... The Dark is coming for us all!." He gets more manic as he speaks, breaking away from the charging station and clumsily running towards Fayaz.

Can you all make an Initiative roll please? (That is a D6 Roll.)

Roll done on Roll20: 4
"Well, at least we finally learned something," says Zaynab as she prepares to dodge the attacker.

When the man 'stumble charges' his way towards Fayz, the former Legionnaire's instincts kick in, with help from his cybernetics. With an instant, he in a combat stance.
Roll initiative: 2 (+2 for using fists) = 4
I also jumped the gun and rolled for melee combat. Don't know how you want to deal with that. :shock:

Basil is quicker than Fayz. Pushing forward on his good leg, he meets the clumsy charge with his own bare hands, ready to rumble. "Wrong choice!" He moves in to knock the drill away and stun his opponent, then try to execute a standing lock before he can recover.
I also jumped the gun, but my plan won't change if anyone is higher on Initiative. I got 8 with Fists.

Action Points: run to the crewman and biff him for 1 damage. For bonus effects, I'll take Disarm first and then Grapple.

As the suit clumsily makes a move towards Fayaz, Basil reacts first and dashes forward, putting himself in between his crewmate and the man in the suit and swinging a punch at the suit.

Basil's blow connects and he quickly follows that up with a move that twists the wrist of the suit, causing the power drill to clatter noisily to the floor of the workshop.
@Bohemond - you've got 4 Successes, so you could do a Critical hit or some other melee move?

Amir is in the rear, not near enough to interfere. But luckily Basil has everything well in hand, controlling the suit with strength and precision. Instead he just makes sure his drone keeps a solid eye on the real person, making sure he can't slip away in the commotion.

Zaynab stands by with her stun gun, which won't be of much use in the current circumstances. She eyes the bay, looking to see if there's an exo suit she can easily climb into without someone moving to stop her.

Fayz moves with practiced ease, bobbing and shifting himself around Basil and the crewman with a grace that is almost unsettling for someone as large as him. His punch finds the man, and would be capable of causing a potentially life-threatening injury if he wanted to. However, with his weapon disarmed and being grappled by his comrade, the Firstcomer decides to end the fight with less bloodshed. After the first punch, he cocks his fist back and simply says, "Enough."
First success inflicts 2 damage (per his limbs). The other three successes will get dumped into the 'strike fear' option, inflicting 3 points of stress.
