Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Angel threw Tavarian's trident to him as the monster tank lumbered into view, then dashed for something resembling heavy cover.  Damage was flashing up on her readout on almost every member of the team, and she struggled for a few seconds to make sense of what was going on amidst the chaos.

As the salvo cleared and the icons on her HUD slowed their flashing, she tried to make a quick assessment of the situation.  She stopped behind a large rock, and waited to see what would happen next.

"Armael, hide us."

Tavarian grabbed the trident and sprinted to a large rock, when he was blasted back by a warhead or two. When he landed he got up and studied the surrounding area.[ Justin; damage assessment.]you didn't get the full force of the blast, so I got minor damage.[alright then, let's do this.] =big E= I'm up and in the air.= he flew towards the midsection of the Ogre and thrusted his trident in, while it was distracted everyone else

Destiny is a freight train rolling along on a set course that only the conductor knows. When we get to the railroad crossing in our car, we can choose to stop and wait for the train to pass us by, or try to pull out in front of it and beat that bad boy across. That choice is our free will. If it's our destiny to be hit by the train, we will be hit by the train. The only thing we can change is how the train turns us into a hamburger.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Distracted was not exactly the case. The anti aircraft turrets that poked up like spines on the back of the hideous monstrosity of a tank tracked Tavarian in his ascent and as he got close opened up on him. His proximity was too close and he managed to evade the guns, which still followed his wake.

As he drove his trident in, the guns pivoted to point directly at the Birdman. And then the power west out. The great metal beast shuddered as its systems went off line. The antiaircraft guns and the main cannon drooped as their targeting disengaged.

There was a moment of stillness. Almost eirie. Then a low hum started and running lights began to come back on starting from the center of the tank and moving like a circulatory system to its extremities.

"Damnit.  Armael, prepare the energy pulse.  We don't have time to get Joanie walking the old fashioned way."

Angel jumped out from behind the cover she had been conceling herself behind and ran towards Big E.

"Can we get between Big E and Lumberjack and dose them both?  Give me a location."

She moved as quickly as she could towards the lumbering heavies, trying to find a position to give them both a healing boost.  If that wasn't going to be possible, she instead closes on Big E before triggering the energy pulse to energise their own repair systems.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Tavarian pulled out his trident and flew to its back. He then brought out his gun and holstered his trident. [I won't be able to get another use on this thing today.] He started shooting at the anti-aircraft turrets; hoping that once they are gone, he would have a smooth getaway.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Some of the anti-aircraft barrels sparked and fell as he blasted at them. The tank started shaking under his feet as it returned to operational status.

Just then Lumberjack's salvo hit the giant mechanical monstrosity. Tavarian felt his feet slipping as the machine pitched under him and the concussion blasts from the artillery struck home. A large sparking hole appeared in the side of the tank. It tried to compensate by extending three long tentacle like appendages to cover the whole and one started for Tavarian.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Angel was able to get to Big E as Lumberjack unleashed his volley on the Ogre. The delay as the big machine reacted defensively gave her time to plug in and monitor Big E's status. He was banged up but nothing a couple days in the tank wouldn't regrow. The healing nanites and medicines began to take a quick effect, not so much curing the wounds, but at least masking the pain and getting him functional again.

Sworty eject the main weapons and ammo! With a loud bang the ammodrum for the gun dropped from his back, quickly followed by the gun itself and the plasma rifle, that was still glowing.
Drawing his pistol, Lukas started to sprint towards the giant monstrosity that was reaching out for Phoenix.
Lukas started firing after the first few steps as Sworty had stabilized his aim on the one tentacle.

The long tentacle twisted it's way up to Phoenix and began to wrap itself around him like a boa constrictor.

Just the Skullette's call came through.

=We'll be out in a second, have Tavarian ready for pick up!=

Sparks flew off the tentacle as Lumberjacks pistol fired into it. It didn't stop it, but it did seem to be taking damage.

Big E's vitals and operational capacity was increasing. He felt a surge from the medicine that simultaneously dulled the pain and pumped him with andorphines. His main systems flickered back online.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Gideon kept his place behind his rock, content to pick off enemies that were distracted by his teammates.  The enemy fire directed at him had lessened.  Things where going quite well until the giant metal Ogre showed up and tore the nearby hanger to pieces.  During its missile barrage, Gideon had sprinted away from cover, hoping just to get away from the direct blast zone.  The force of the explosions lifted him off the ground as he was running, depositing him into a open area with just clouds of dust as cover.

From that point on, Gideon directed his fire towards anything that looked important on the metal monstrosity, but to no effect; the bullets just ricocheted off.  Even cover was not as important as putting lead into that contraption at that moment.

Dante, we can't lose Phoenix.  Load up the armor-piercing rounds, that tentacle has to go.

Gideon heard the new rounds click into place and scoped the tentacle and looked for any part of it that was dented or had any other anomaly.

As soon as he heard Lumberjack's voice Marcus snapped back into reality

"Yeah, I've got something to shoot. WHY DON'T YOU TRY TAKING A HIT LIKE THAT AND SEE HOW YOU FEEL"

He belted as he reading the Gatling gun on the tentacle.

Now Marcus, no reason to snap

Joanie, just load AP

Marcus...

Joanie, just load the ammo

Yes Marcus

Marcus twitched as he felt the new belts load into the gun, before he squeezed the trigger again. Firing the  heavy gatling at the tentacle, as he let his missiles fly loose at it's base. Hoping to either cut it, or lop the entire thing off

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

"Armael.  What's the chance of our armament touching that thing?"

The tentacles seem to be weaker than the main armour.  It may be possible to damage them with our pistol.

Angel looks at the monster towering above her, then quickly scans down the icons on her HUD.  Lots of damage, but none of it critical, and no chance to do anything about it until this beast is dead or evaded.

She continues to move, looping back away from Big E before he draws retaliatory fire from the Ogre.  Seeing that he's aiming for the tentacle holding Phoenix, Angel instead fires her pistol at the tentacles covering the rent in the Ogre's armour.  If luck really goes her way, she might even hit something important through the hole, but more likely she'll just weaken the emergency armour for someone else to finish the job.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Of all the people who could have freed Tavarian, Angel was not one of the people immediately thought if. Somehow one of her rounds found a slight chunk in the armor directly over the hydraulics controlling the joint, ripping through the hoses and causing the tentacle to loosen it's grip on Tavarian.

Unfortunately, the rest  of the tank was fully operational.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Tavarian was shooting at the anti-aircraft turrets when the suddenly moved back and hit him. He was just recovering when a tentacle grabbed him. He brought out his plasma daggers and just kept slashing at the damaged part of the tentacle. -all- I'm trying!- when it looked like he was making little damage on it, its gripped weakened and he brought out his trident. He stabbed at the spot over and over, trying to either weaken it more or, cut it off completely.

Re: Escort Service - Team Lumberjack

Tavarian felt the pressure from the tentacle loosen on him. His relief was fairly short lived as he watched a volley of friendly missiles flying for the tank he was on top of. His life might end up as short lived too.

Joanie flashed schematics of a variety of very heavy tanks and behemoth war machines. '3 inch overlapping plate armor. Redundant power systems. Heavy weapons with minimal safeguards to fail. It is a powerful machine. It does appear to be vulnerable if its legs can be made unbalanced.'

Angel adjusts her path to take her to the dropped gun, hopefully without making it obvious that she's heading for it.
