With all stations reporting in, Ironbreaker's smile comes through the vox.
Then the force comes. It is not unlike a drop-pod, the heady and vertiginous feeling of the ground rushing up towards your feet, but the press of a fist onto your chests, driving you into the seats at each of your stations. The cables and lines snaking to and from your power armour tremble and flex with the force, and those of you who have a line of sight to Inquisitrix Galleus can tell that she is suffering from the gravitational forces too, although in her case, her human frame only tolerates so much before she slumps, unconscious.
The force is exceptional. The gravitic ram hurls the Blackstar without any of the expected grating or grinding to be expected from such a launch. With no friction to arrest her, the gunship hurls forth into the blackness, the twinkling of lances and macrocannon illuminating the immediate area with miniature stars. The near-miss of ship-killing ordnance meant for Kerberos rocks the Blackstar and Ironbreaker wrestles with the controls.
He executes a sharp turn, and filling the window is the grey-streaked, blue-green vista of Baraban.
All at once, the threat warning tones begin to chirp and pulse. Across all stations you see a wing of red triangles moving in unerring formation, sweeping towards your projected course.
+Barracudas,+ Ironbreaker hisses. He heaves on the sticks. +All stations, stand by!+
The team will now work together to avoid destruction of their Blackstar and ultimate failure of the mission. Each of you will now test against the Characteristic Stat of the station you currently control. Please post your rolls plus any successes of Failures in this thread.
Your rolls and narrative will directly effect the outcome of the action, and you are entitled to one re-roll each without needing to use a Fate Point. This is to reflect the enhanced reflexes of the Astartes and the nature of the encounter. Like any re-roll, if you use it, the new number stands, even if it is worse. There are no modifiers for these tests.
When posting, just put your station and Stat test, so:
EWEAPS Test (Int): 54
D100: 24 PASS plus DoS
You may add any flavour text to this you wish, pass or fail. Post in here in OOC green if you need clarification, or for further discussion drop a note in the OOC thread.
I will update with the full outcome hopefully tonight.
