Bear spotted them first. Them sneaky gits were trying to sneak up on us to steal the doc right out from where we took him in the Big Drop.


We weren't going to let them take him back. Dr. Legnirps was great at fixing us up when we got tore up in fights, or after drinking.

Bear yelled out a warning and opened fire. I saw that cowl wearing cretin go slamming backwards into the masonry when Bear's slug hit him full-on in the chest.

We were caught out a bit and the rest of the Cawdors opened fire. I saw bit of stone flying all around Bear as the rattle of gunfire echoed off of the ruined walls around us.


I started shooting back and a proper gunfight ensued.

That was until someone hit Drago square in the chest with a frag grenade. It exploded and I could see that Drago wasn't too badly hurt, but the blast sent him towards the edge.

I could just make out his face and the look on it went from rage to surprise as he lost his footing and fell. Even over the roar of gunfire we heard his scream and both sides stopped shooting for one brief moment until we heard the sickened crack of his body hitting the ground 24 meters below.


All hell broke loose after that.

We were pinned down, outnumbered as we were.


I didn't see it but at some point Bear took off. I don't know if it was seeing Drago fall or that he was in the center of the Bleeped text storm and about to be surrounded. Either way it was not cool and I'll have words with him when I see him next.


One of those little cretins snuck past us and broke in on where we was holding the doc. Bonesnapper chased him out of their with his shot gun though and then blasted two of them right outside the door.

We were all up and firing again and they were shooting back when we heard the sirens. Everyone got their last licks in and then hoofed it. We even had to leave the doc behind.

No one wants to get caught by the Arbites and spend any time in an iso cube, or worse.

This game had the most memorable wounding in all the games I've played. After debating about whether to use a krak or frag grenade (krak more likely to wound, but frag had a chance to wound and a chance to knock the guy off of the ledge) the Cawdor player went with frag. It didn't wound but the Goliath was blasted back towards the ledge, failed his initiative roll and fell 18"!

He suffered a S9, -3AP, 3D hit and went out of action on impact.

It was great.
