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 You shall compete to win the coveted prize of an out of date 10 warptoken gift voucher to Ikit Claw's hardware emporium.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. :)

...you can still call me Rusty Tincanne if you want, though.

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

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.

scratchings and squeakings

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.

The one and only.
"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!

Engineer Tkull: Aye, but tae cause temperature change energy is transfor-

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...

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.

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!

Engineer Tkull:...Erm...aye...he can regenerate by stand-standing by a working heating system.

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!

Engineer Tkull: What-what is that?!

*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*

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. :)

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

The battle was heating up at the same time the atmosphere seemed to be cooling down, ice spreading in a strange and uncharacteristic manner. This hardly bothered Sketch 'Lightning Feet' DeVito however, he who had won the Grandslam Speakeasy Swing Dance Competition for three years running! Anyone who could execute a superlative Lindy Hop across the oiled, bloodstained parquet dancefloors of Fat Sam's to out of time music and dodging the overenthusiastic Stormvermin bouncers could hardly expect to be troubled by a little ice underfoot! With that confidence Sketch glided across the ice and took up position behind the accumulating concentration of his fellow Skaven where he opened fire on the grey blob the red blob had run to for shelter.

Actions: Do the Foxtrot three squares north and fire on the heating vent the Santabot is beside.

Grumbling at the stupid vent that he swore had only been in the floor at the beginning, Silas fired of another shot at the vent. This time he would hit.

Seer Gnawtail: It appears Silas is just a little-little bit annoyed about being burnt.

Engineer Tkull: How self-selfish of thar rat! Look at thar way he stands still and neatly pops an acidic paint ball-thing over the vents. It-it’s like he’s not even trying.

Seer Gnawtail: But it’s a hit nonetheless, and the group are nearer to completion.

Engineer Tkull: Rusty quite clev-cleverly tries to escape thar appearance of thar Ratty-bots.

Seer Gnawtail: But his shoot-shot narrowly misses the vent and his musket nearly overheats...

Engineer Tkull: Aye, ah never did fix-mend thar problem with thar overheating...

Seer Gnawtail: You really are a use-useless Engineer aen’t you?!

Engineer Tkull: Aye most merciful of masters...

Seer Gnawtail: Vinz quickly nabs the fallen present and hurries back into position and fires off a pinpoint shot that smashes Santa-bot back into the wall.

Engineer Tkull: He then rip-snatches thar wrapping off of thar present tae reveal a nice-nicely decorated Holy Hand Grenade of Antisanta...Things may liven a wee bit up!

Seer Gnawtail: WillQueek scurry-dashes forward and snatches a shot that impact-hits close to Santa-bot. But still misses! He also knocks Vinz to the ground...

Engineer Tkull: Mean-meanwhile Sketch easily dances pas-past thar ice...Wait-wait, what is he doing?

Seer Gnawtail: A perfect foxtrot! His elegance not hampered at all by his musket or seemingly concrete shoes. I give him a 9!

Engineer Tkull: Are you alright?

Seer Gnawtail: I would like-like to see him try a Lindy Hop...*blinks* Ahem...anyway...

Engineer Tkull: And his shot make-makes Santa-bot flinch but hit-hits with unerring accuracy and covering thar heat-heating system t’with paint.

Seer Gnawtail: And Kimzi does little-little but stare in amazement at the present-thing...

Engineer Tkull: Santa-bot retreats back and disnae manage tae heal himself. The two Ratty-bots however march forwards. They appear to have-have MkXII Warpmuskets too!

Seer Gnawtail: That’s correct-right, the first manages to slip over on the ice and break-breaks apart! The Second however hits WillQueek right in the tender parts!

Engineer Tkull: Och thar poor wee laddie! At least it was a paintball and nay a real round!

Seer Gnawtail: Another Ratty-bot is spawned by Santa-bot, and the ice spread-spreads further!

Engineer Tkull: Hm what-what’s that?!

Seer Gnawtail: A rather deranged looking rat-thing has wandered onto the floor. Perhaps it is not wise-wise for him to take-snatch a musket...

Engineer Tkull: And we’ll be right back after this word from our sponsors...

The rising price of Warpstone getting you down? Bigger rats always stealing you stash? What you need is “I can’t believe it’s not Warpstone”! Our alchemists have found a cheaper alternative to Warpstone that is almost as good! So buy yours today at all participating stores!

Warning “I can’t believe it’s not Warpstone” probably won’t work anywhere as good as real Warpstone. “I can’t believe it’s not Warpstone” can also cause explosions, random mutations, and killer bunnies...

With Vinz lying prone on the floor, Rusty had a plain view of the present. I am the Good Rat!!!! He runs across Vinz's back while shoving Willqueek out of the way. If only the ice does not slow him up...

Action: Move 2 north, 3 northeast. Pick up present, then shoot vent in the northeast corner.

As WillQueek noticed KimZi was rather absent minded, idle you could say, he ran over to the breeder-thing, nicked the present and moved as far west away from the Santa bot...
