Seer Gnawtail: Greetings-welcome fool-flesh to another exciting tournament of Extreme Skaven Paintball! We did attempt-try to call it ESP but were sued by the hit tv sitcom Big Slann Theory...
Engineer Tkull: Aye, but this year's event is to be a scorcher!...Erm great-mighty Seer Gnawtail? Why-why is it so cold?
Seer Gnawtail: It look-looks like that Santa-bot of yours has gone bad-wrong! Instead of spreading destruction-carnage on the man-things he's set the heat-heating system to freeze everything!
Engineer Tkull: *Groans* But-but he has me Ratty-bot replicator! He can potentially create-spawn an army-thing of (slightly malfunctioning) robots!
Seer Gnawtail: At leas-least they are vulnerable-weak to paintballs?
Engineer Tkull:...Erm...YES-YES!...Of course...I think...
Seer Gnawtail: Well it appears that we have our fir-first mission-thing for our competitiors. They must shut down the heat-heating system and kill-slay that jolly Santa-bot.

OOC: Welcome to Extreme Skaven Paintball, not so harmless fun for the whole Underempire (well fun for the audience at least...) You shall compete to win the coveted prize of an out of date 10 warptoken gift voucher to Ikit Claw's hardware emporium. You can work together as a team or gleefully shoot the stuffing out of each other. There will be times where you will work in rival teams, but for now you need to disable the heating system (those four grey things with the red dots) from freezing over the map (and probably most of Skavenblight. You can do this by covering their exhaust ports with paint which'll cause them to explode in a suitably dramatik fashion. You must also eliminate the Santa-bot who will attack whoever is closest, can heal by standing by a heating system, and randomly spawns a couple of grunts. However if you do injure him with the corrosive nature of the paintballs, he may drop a present from his sack. These presents contain a mystery item which will expire by the end of the stage. Also watch out for the rapidly increasing expanse of ice (the blue tiles) which can prove hazardous if you move over them or perform any other action whilst on one of them. You are encouraged to work as a team, but you don't have to. We are Skaven afterall! Turn 1 ends by Monday (Christmas Eve) next week, with the update on Christmas Day (if not sooner.) I decided to add Kimzi in there, although she can get away with being inactive for her couple weeks. Any further questions on anything i've missed can be posted in the OOC thread. :)

Points!? I need-want points! I must have them!

Action: Move diagonally up/right for 6 spaces, then right for 2 (placing me nest to the lower heating unit on the right-side). Shoot at the exhaust vent to block it up.

And then hope that it will take time to overheat! :o

"Get-kill the Santa-bot fool rats"

Leaving the others to confront the evil Santa-bot Silas scarpered for the corner. He would destroy-wreck one of the vents.

Action: Run 3 North-West then 3 North. Once there shoot the heating vent.

Jerking back to conciousness Sketch frantically straightened his dishevelled but still extremely stylish suit and hat. He knew he'd drank too much, if he broke another string he'd be kicked out of The Aristorats for sure...

Sketch paused and shook his head to clear it. Everything was far too cold for this to be the sweltering underground speak-easy club of Fat Sam. Finding something wooden beside him Sketch snatched up his violin only to leap in shocked dismay as it gave a deafening crack and recoiled backwards into his face. It had broken! His treasured violin, legitimately obtained from a man-thing Tilean by the name of Antonio Stradivari, broken!

Another Skaven sprinted past at the slowly expanding limit of Sketch's blurred, swaying, warpohol-tinted vision. The Skaven had been toting a warp-rifle. Sketch looked again at his cherished violin only to find it had oddly muskety characteristics itself that he was sure he didn't remember. He tried to saw out a C chord on it but only succeeded in reloading it. He now realised that he'd accidentally fired it at a huge and jolly red blob a short distance away. Maybe the blob had his violin! Snarling, Sketch straightened his hat once more, reefed up his tie and ducked forward two squares north-west where he assumed a perfect crouch, warp-rifle at the ready once again.

Actions: Shoot at Santa, move two squares north-west.

"Die Santa-bot! Die!!" Kimzi shouted as she charged the foul bot, secretly hoping for lots and lots of presents.

Action: Charge towards the Santa-bot as far as allowed and shoot him where it hurts most.

Watching Kimzi run at full speed towards the bot, Vinshqueek decided that the true Skaven fashion of a hunting game is to always have someone in front of you to soak up some hits. Moving in behind her, he tried to keep her in between himself and the bot, while scoring some points along the way.

Actions: Move six places north-east, then shoot the bot

Seer Gnawtail: Look-looks like all that Tilean training in shoot outs has give-given Sketch an advantage in speed.

Engineer Tkull: Yes-yes most masterful of masters, and a very fine hit as well! Right on thar chest. But Santa-bot appears tae shrug it off.

Seer Gnawtail: *Giggles* He looks very cross! Maybe Sketch should-shouldn’t get much closer! Oh well, more fun-joy for us.

Engineer Tkull: Aye, Kimzi dashes right in front of Santa-bot and even fer a quick-hurried shot man-manages tae hit Santa-bot right on thar noggin’! She looks a bit cross though. I think she t’was aiming somewhere else!

Seer Gnawtail: And Santa-bot looks injured! Well done that luck-lucky rat! And Vinshqueek bobs and weaves behind her. Wait-wait is he try-trying to shoot-slay her?!

Engineer Tkull: Nay, he shoot-scores a good-great hit on Santa-bot who near fall-falls backwards. Let-lets get a mic down there!

Santa-bot: Ho-ho-hzzk...Someone’s been a..brrrk...bad boy this year!

Seer Gnawtail: They may-may have injured Santa-bot but he is angry!

Engineer Tkull: Silas taking advantage of thar fighting and charges into thar heating system...and bounces right off it! He does-doesn’t seem injured-hurt but his fur t’is smouldering a wee bit.

Seer Gnawtail: Smouldering?! But it is so col-cold!

[color=#ee4a2d]Engineer Tkull: Aye, but tae cause temperature change energy is transfor-

[color=darkgreen]Seer Gnawtail: Look-look! He managed to fire a quick shot...and missed! Mmm all that burn-burnt fur makes me want-need a McMurty’s...pity that Bloodbowl season has end-ended...

[color=#ee4a2d]Engineer Tkull: And now Rusty Tincanne leaps towards thar other heating system. He hits it and cov-covers part of thar mechanism in acidic paint. It appears damaged but probably needs another good-good hit.

[color=darkgreen]Seer Gnawtail: Santa-bot meanwhile flee-scurries back to the shelter of a heating system and bathes in the coldness surrounding it. This somehow appears to make-make him heal his injuries!

[color=#ee4a2d]Engineer Tkull:...Erm...aye...he can regenerate by stand-standing by a working heating system.

[color=darkgreen]Seer Gnawtail: Well at least he’s left a couple presents behind! And has spawn-created two Ratty-Bots to assist-help him. They are however slow-slow in starting. Also ice continues to spread, one patch emerging beneath Silas!

[color=#ee4a2d]Engineer Tkull: What-what is that?!

[color=white]*The crazed form of WillQueek crashes through the roof, and lands heavily on the ground. His parachute then opens up... He rises to his feet and grabs a warpmusket off a handy rack*

[color=darkgreen]Seer Gnawtail: Another victi..I mean challenger!




OOC: Sketch hit but failed to wound, Vinz and Kimzi both hit and wounded Santa-bot (who then retreated and healed himself (lucky regen rolls).) Santa-bot also dropped two presents that are automatikally picked up by moving onto them, the effects take place at the end of the turn and you can only pick up one per turn. Don't get greedy! :P Silas managed to miss his target (I forgot to mention that moving over half speed has a small negative modifier to shooting. My bad.) and ice has spread under his feet. Rusty managed to damage his target but it needs to take one more wound to be destroyed. Finally WillQueek has landed in and is ready to play. Oh and the next update will be Sunday 30th. :)

Points
Sketch - 0
Vinz - 1
Kimzi - 1
Rusty - 1
Silas - 0
Will - 0

WillQueek looked left and right, and then left again and decide to go straight for the kill.

Action: Move diagonally as close as possible to Santa and shoot his arse off xD
FOR THE GLORY OF THE HORNED RAT OF COURSE!

Sensing how keeping others in front of him might be a sensible way of surviving these games, Vinshqueek nabbed one of the presents and kept the ice in between himself and the bots, while trying to move behind Rusty and take another pot-shot at the Santa-bot.

Action: Move two squares diagonally up/left (as in: to the northwest), pick up the present, move two squares to the right, move two squares diagonally down/right (as in: to the southeast), shoot Santa-bot again

Rusty was taking a moment to pat his own back when he heard scraping metal - the sounds of a wounded Santabot. He looked to his left and was further disturbed to see that it had healed itself and had created two clones. "dung buckets!" He resisted the urge to fire on the bots though because it made little else to injure it if it was able to regenerate. Instead, he took aim and fired another shot at the heating system. Then he scurried for cover behind Vinz.

Actions: fire a shot at the heating system and then run One square south-west, and then another two due west to get behind Vinz. :P
