    A fight in this position would likely draw reinforcements from the other forces gathered in the room. Cleaning the Mansion of these intruders could wait. First priority was to deal with the hacker. So for now, these enemies were a distraction. Rex flees the battle.

    Pausing at the other end of the room, the adrenaline had just started to settle into a light meow in her ears, when Star's stomach suddenly felt as if it had leapt up into her throat when she heard the tell-tale sounds of 'Attention-Get!' as it were, and shifted back with widening eyes to catch wind of enemies with Rex in their sights. She hesitated, knowing full-well that any attempt to assist might be noticed by the other enemies in the room, but unwilling to leave anyone behind. For the moment...she waited, wondering if perhaps Rex might opt to try and make a hasty retreat and attempt to flee the battle outright...

Nebiros: Sparks 10/33 Energy 5/7, Blacjak: Sparks 14/28 Energy 4/5, iko: Sparks 9/28 Energy 7/10] Team Science Project Star found that she moved much slower across the wooden floor without socks, but despite the uncomfortable movement that required picking up her feet she managed to reach the other side safely. She was almost disappointed, but looking back at the webcrawlers made her thankful for her good fortune. [Result: 38] Traj went next, with similar thoughts to Star's. Surely they could take down a few webcrawlers, couldn't they? His movements were fluid, and although the webcrawlers seemed agitated by so many passersby, he reached the other side and joined Star. [Result: 73] "The biscuit is about half-risked already," Rex messaged Blacjak. He continued on with an air of command about him, as if sheer force of will could repel his enemies. Unfortunately, as he neared the other side a spambot and a webcrawler took notice of him. [Result: 85] [Spambot, Webcrawler approach. During the first round, only Rexozord may give a battle command. Star and/or Traj may opt to join the battle (joining at the end of the first round). For each player to join the encounter, an additional Spambot and Webcrawler will be added to the battle. At the end of each round, there is a 25% chance of another Spambot joining and a 33% chance of another Webcrawler joining (with a possibility of both joining).

    Rex rolls Stealth, third. Rex looked out on the room filled with Webcrawlers and Spambots. Discretion is the better part of valor. No need to fight here, especially with our depleted resources. As he was about half-way across the room, he got a PM. Don't risk it for the biscuit, we can reach the east door. Smiling faintly, Rex shot back a quick reply. The biscuit is about half-risked already.

    iko switches position with Blacjak Attack: WebCrawler A Nodding at the move, iko preferred being behind the group. That way he can see the action in plain view. "Got it, Khem." Even though Blacjak clearly looks different from Khem, there was a disappointing lack of attention from iko. He must have been 80% self-reflecting still.
  9. Sparkbomb: Mansionverse Saga

    On the way down the hallways of the east wing Blacjak sent a PM to Rex: Don't risk it for the biscuit, we can reach the east door. Upon spotting their opponent, Blacjak almost shifted to the back of the group as he felt his lack of Nerve getting the better of him, but he was certain a sneak attack could take out his opponent in a single blow.

    "Yeah, I figure that's probably best." Traj eyed the group. It would be so easy to just take on one at a time... but he wasn't feeling particularly lucky. "I'll go after you, Star." [Action - Stealth] [Position - Second]

    ... ... ... "...whelp..." Even she didn't have a suicide wish that badly. ...though the XP gains were reaaaaally tempting... Killing that Webcrawler earlier in one bat-smash was not helping her self-preservation issues. I could get the drop on that one and then...hm, I wonder how many I could kill before I- Grr.... "If you don't mind, I think I'll go first. I'm not feeling particularly lucky." She eyed her HP and swallowed, but moved forward, wishing desperately for the socks that might let her slide across the floor to the other side of the room in one fatal swoop... run_command!Options/Two_Stealth/Order/First

    Team Piracy Deciding that iko needed to reach the east hall, his teammates let him make the first move while the situation seemed safest. Although he lacked the grace of Nebiros and Blacjak, his movements had a calculated nature to them, and although a spambot appeared to be looking directly at him at one point, he ultimately passed through undetected. [Result: 86] Blacjak went next, movements graceful and quick. Much like the wind itself, it seemed as if only an instant had passed before he had joined iko on the other side. [Result: 2] Nebiros swallowed hard, fighting every instinct to grab the nearest fire extinguisher and spontaneously gain the hacking skills to convert in into a flamethrower. Impossible or not, she thought it might be a better idea than trying to sneak past so many webcrawlers. Her movements were more measured than Blacjak's, alternating between slow and quick movements as fear and strategy gripped her mind in equal measure. It felt like forever--although Blacjak would assure her it had been less than a minute--before she reached the other side. [Result: 59] If they could get iko to the east hall, they could bring down the barrier and ensure that no one ever had to cross this minefield again. Traveling East... At the next intersection, Nebiros had had enough. The three webcrawlers staring her down would burn. As much as something beaten and battered could burn without fire, anyway. [WebcrawlerABC approach. Upon completion of the battle, paths lie open to the East and South. (You came from the West.) The path South leads to the primary objective and the East Hall. The path East leads towards the Art Forum and the Items Cache. If heading South, please specify whether you will head towards the primary objective or the East Hall.

Deleted! Victory! All battlers gain 3 XP! Traveling East... North... East... North... East... Having dealt with their foes, Rex, Traj, and Star made their way through the hallways of the second floor to arrive in the Grand Ballroom. It was the largest room in the Mansion, and the north wall was filled with windows that offered a view of the balcony, the courtyard below, and the Mansion grounds beyond. Inside, chairs and tables lined the edges of the ballroom. Unfortunately, a group of spambots and too many webcrawlers had decided to make the room their home. Traj tested the door to the balcony only to find it locked. They would have to sneak past the legion of enemies or get the drop on them. [Four (4) Spambots and perhaps two dozen Webcrawlers are present in the room. With the latter skittering around so much, it's difficult to pin down a number, but it's well over a dozen, and you would guess it's less than thirty (30). You have three options, and each player may act individually. Players must specify the order in which they'll act. The player queue will be followed until an encounter is triggered or all players have successfully acted. 1) Ambush. You may attempt to ambush a single enemy of your choice. You have a 70% chance of success (although hit chance is calculated normally, so misses may occur). Failure will result in a normal round of combat for both you and the targeted enemy. (This is a clarification from Team Piracy.) If the enemy is killed outright, you have a 75% chance of remaining undetected. Failing this roll, the following encounter will occur: in addition to the targeted enemy (if alive), 20% chance of additional Spambot, 30% chance of additional Webcrawler, or 50% chance of additional Spambot and Webcrawler. Other players may join when the battle is triggered, but each player joining will add a Spambot and Webcrawler to the encounter. (This is changed from Team Piracy.) Each round, there is a 25% chance of another Spambot joining and a 33% chance of another Webcrawler joining (with a possibility of both joining). 2) Stealth. Players attempting stealth will have an 80% chance of going undetected and reaching the East side of the Grand Ballroom. Failing this roll, one of the following encounters will begin: 30% chance of Spambot, 40% chance of Webcrawler, or 30% chance of Spambot and Webcrawler. Each round, there is a 25% chance of another Spambot joining and a 33% chance of another Webcrawler joining (with a possibility of both joining). Other players may join after the first round, but each player joining will add a Spambot and Webcrawler to the encounter. (This is changed from Team Piracy.) 3) Engage in battle. This will result in a fight against SpambotA, WebcrawlerAB, with one (1) additional Spambot and one (1) additional Webcrawlers for each additional player to engage in combat. (This is changed from Team Piracy.) Each round, there is a 25% chance of another Spambot joining and a 33% chance of another Webcrawler joining (with a possibility of both joining).

    Traj shook his head. The spiders had gone down, but the 'bot was going to take some work. He flipped his new bat again, catching it by the handle. So be it. [Attack Spambot]

  17. Sparkbomb: Mansionverse Saga

    As Star danced backwards out of range, she brought the foam bat up to her shoulder and stood observing the rest of the round of the fight, extremely pleased with herself. Yes, this "weapon," as it were, felt much more natural in her hands. She had suspected that the Webcrawlers were more susceptible to her physical attack and felt overly satisfied to find it drop to her "blade." The Spambot, she felt confident, would prove more resilient to such tactics. She appeared to consider something, then shrugged. run_command!Battle/Attack/Spambot

    iko was nervous upon seeing the enemy. He started to meditate his thoughts by self-reflecting. His composure changed and he appeared nonchalant. The plan to maneuver around the enemy came quick, as if natural. iko attempts to stealth first
  19. Sparkbomb: Mansionverse Saga

    Blacjak thought for a moment, "iko should go first, his survival is mandatory." Blacjak slipped into the shadows whispering, "I am the night..." Blacjak chooses Stealth, after iko.

    Nebiros's face fell upon seeing... well... literally everything. In most cases, she figured she'd enjoy the ballroom, with all of its windows and clearly stellar views. But not like this. Never like this. At this point, she was almost certain nobody would actually, truly mind if she just... added a 4th option. Set fire to the room. Set fire to the whole mansion. When asked why she'd just say there were one too many robo-spiders. She'd be completely justified. The only thing really stopping her was that, unfortunately, she had no actual way of going forward with her nuclear option. Her frown intensified. Nebiros turned to face iko and Blacjak, who were both in rough shape with sparks. One crit on either would take them out easy. She still had a singular spark mini but would hold off on crushing it for either, hoping to save it for another, less crazy, time if they made it through the ballroom without drawing attention to themselves. "Hey so like... Please don't Leeroy Jenkins this room because I will let you die." NEBIROS IS GONNA STEALTH BY THE ENEMIES BECAUSE EFF THIS NOISE OMG... but maybe not first. iko and Blac can play rock-paper-scissors for that 95% stealth if they're looking to stealth too. I'm chill with 80%. Save yourselves.

    Looks like there's still some dispute about distribution and parties. Potential update tonight if Rex and Nebiros get commands in and things seem reasonable to finalize.

    "I'll stick around with Star," Traj said, eyeing one of the webcrawlers dubiously. He picked up a beanbag chair and hurled it at the creepy crawler; partially to hurt it, but also partially to see if it would stick. [Item Equip: Foam Bat] [Party Formation - Slot 2] [Attack Webcrawler B]

    I thought about that. I would probably say they have to choose one out of each category, and then make the categories so that one player couldn't load up on a single type. And possibly a lottery system of who gets first pick on any given ability. Then each ability can only be given to x many players.
  29. Sparkbomb: Mansionverse Saga

    After the battle in the Mafia Lounge, iko snapped out of his coma. Scanning the situation, he quickly took note of Traj's recommendation for iko to equip a Graphic Tee. In tandem, iko quietly picked one up. He started to take off his regular shirt, but then froze. He became self-conscious of his body, and then decided to wear the Graphic Tee over his regular clothing. Was it stylish? he thought. He looked down at the graphic on the tee, but there was not enough story description to describe it. As the others were negotiating the rest of the items, iko slowly moved over to Nebiros. He didn't know how he got into another party, or why Nebiros and Khem were where they were. But he still wanted to stay with Nebiros and Khem. Although it has been brief, Nebiros has been taking care of him, and he suspects Khem has feelings for Nebiros. Item: Use Graphic Tee on iko
