MEGALOS ep. 5 -
Almost done with the tutorial phase.
Still to come …
A Particular Kind of Character!
Large, dim room.
Barry’s voice: At last I’ll have my revenge, and get back Blockhead!
We come along a cloud island full of junk. Discarded stuff.
Oh, look … Barry’s Mist Miners!
Oh, look … some junk is moving.
Oh, look … it’s a cannon!
Seirus does something Clever, examining the junk pile.
So we dodge slightly and get a glancing blow from the lightning bolt.
We’re still going down …
After the crash …
Need to keep the mole folk off the ship.
Xeric - Cautious ==> Fail!
Strong as an Aurochs Strength … Fail!
So, long and protracted battle. It’s their home turf, after all.
Carabas Quickly recces the island … Hitx3! Find a building that seems to be the central source of power.
Cut forward toward building.
In the building: stacks of junk being examined, disassembled.
Mist miners without their signature masks (they scamper away).
Aha! Central generator!
Figuring out how to disable – until Barry calls from overhead. “So you’re the ones in that ship … you take my robot, now you come for me! Now were ready for you! Steven! Hit the switch!”
Arc of lightning!
Seirus: looks like the focal point.
Lightning hits down a hole … and here comes the Big Robot!
It’s a BOSS!
Carabas – summon 1 Phantasm, summon Fog of War.
Auoy - Liquifaction, move through their square, Wounding B2.
Boss - Dazed - NOT!. Also Wounded.
Flyby … 3 Piercing on C, X, S.
Blast Wave at Seirus.
… Xeric EXPOSEs B2.
Saves vs A’s Wounded.
Xeric: Greatsword. Unfortunately, his Elemental Core
Second strike. More damage, more Wounded.
Finisher - 6 piercing!
Seirus: Dancing Plague, Naganata … EXPOSED.
Panikos - umbral attack. And it’s … AFRAID.
Basic strike AND Taunt and some GRIT. ==> 10.
B2 is dead, falling into the pit.
B2. upgraded, comes from the depths!
And eight Mekari Scanners come with him! And four more Mekari Constructors on the ledge with us! Eep!
Carabas - Add a Phantasm, and Phantasmagoria.
Auoy - Liquifaction through the Constructors are across from us.
Wounded Constructors drop. The others …
One on Auoy misses.
The other four come in … Stumbling Charge
Carabas - hit but all soaked.
Xeric - missed.
Seirus - missed.
Carabas - hit for 3.
Blockhead flies to the corner.
Magnetic Core – damages C, X, S, and then pulls us into the corner.
Xeric - Blackfire Blast vs Constructors. Grit – hit! Zaps them all.
Seirus - 3 hits! 17 dmg, EXPOSED! More hits. Lost seals.
Normal strike … now 10. 3 hits! And Taunt!
Magnetic core on cool-down.
Coolant leak at Seirus. 9 get thru and SLOWed
Coolant Leak at Xeric – Damage, Slowed.
Carabas - Summon P, Phantasmagoria, get bonus from EXPOSED, so 8 piercing.
Xeric - Yes, it’s injured. Soul Eater - damage. Then Dark Side Release - 5 piercing for Finisher, and heal. Then run north.
Seirus - Flurry of Strikes, with Advantage. – B2 shudders, and its rockets send it flying, upward, through the ceiling, knocking Barry’s observation dome down into the pit …
Healing from Auoy.
Loot the base! … NEXT TIME!
XP … 2 … which lets us level, and gives us artifact slots!
