Outskirts of New York City
New York always has, and always will be one of the busiest cities in the
world. The Big Apple, the city that never sleeps...Now it is nearly the state
that never sleeps. New York is following in the Tokyo tradition of spreading its
tentacles into everything within reach, growing and expanding. The level of
technology here is rivaled only in Tokyo, the original sprawl. But here there is
something different, perhaps it's the attitude.
Contents: MiG-29 <Fulcrum> Comcast Shelby GT 500 <Eleanor> The Shoe Inn Obvious exits:
Fly <Up> leads to Sky Over New York City. East <E> leads to Northwest Atlantic. Central Park <CP> leads to Central Park. Out <O> leads to New York.
MiG-29 <Fulcrum> doesn't bother to transform, just cirlcing the area. "We are
here to aquire fleshingling transmissions?" Fulcrum inquires, not really up to
speed on TV.
DepthCharge soars down into view from the skies above. DepthCharge has arrived.
DepthCharge comes flying on through the New York sky, sending various radio
messages to NY air control, making sure he has a clear flight path. Now, if he
can just work out where that cRaZy Junkion is.
"Correct. The humans view them," Comcast says, enjoying the novelty of teaching
Fulcrum something about earth. "For entertainment," he adds with a mixture of
confusion and contempt. The Red Seeker begins to glide towards the building.
"This should hopefully not take long." He grins as he looks down again at the
humans pointing their fingers towards the gigantic robot gracefully travelling
over them. You'd think they'd be used to that by now.
Roadrunner Hoverbike is fast approaching, well, fast approaching for a Harley
like motorcycle with wings. Oh, of course it also has it's thrusters and antigrav
plates to help with the flying. But all in all looks modeled after a Harley. At
this point, she is just listening for further Decepticon communication, hoping
the Autobot would come for her assistance. She doesn't like the idea of anyone
approaching a tv station with harmful intentions.
MiG-29 <Fulcrum> hmpfs. "How are these stored? Our collective carrying capacity
is fairly small.. I do not wish to be towing out several large crates on a tow
cable.. again." Fulcrum finally transforms and hangs motionless in mid air,
scowling at the likeaFOX building. This seems like a waste of time. The MiG-29 twists around and folds in on itself with a grinding sound,
transforming into the robotic form of Fulcrum.
Having entered the big apple, like a giant, flying worm, DC sends off a radio
message to the Junkion, trying to locate where both she and those cRaZy
Decepticons are. Well, it shouldn't be too locate them eventually. After all,
when Decepticons attack a place there are normally lotsa explosions and stuff.
Cause Decepticons never studied the ancient art of ninjas. Stealth is not their
Roadrunner Hoverbike maintains her flight pattern, still behind the cons position
as she's just not as fast, but always keeping a lock from having intercepted
their transmissions before. Meanwhile, she radios to DepthCharge "I am the eye in
the sky, looking at you oooooo, come take me hand, we will fly so high
together...down in the valley, behold, there is light!"
Comcast turns to Fulcrum in front of the building, "I would have brought a cage
if that was what we needed," he says, "But what I need now.. is a Seeker-sized
hole.. about... there." He says, pointing to one of the lower levels on the
building, acting as if he actually knows where the network keeps their archives. Fulcrum nods.. then realises Comcast actually expects /him/ to do the work. "Very
well" he intones grudgingly, raising one arm and powering up his new weapon.. the
dreaded HEAT RAY! The mirrored glass windows shimmer, then glow a bright red as
the ray takes affect, the windows turning to scalding liquid which runs down the
side of the building, creating an entrace for the two Decepticons, who want to go
in and ILLEGALLY take copies of shows! For they are not Ninjas... they are
Fulcrum strikes likeaFOX building with Heat Ray <Low>
Following Songbird's radio waves, DepthCharge eventually comes upon the flying
Junkion. He thinks . o O (Take her hand? But.. she doesn't have any hands. I
guess it is just one of those Junkion expressions). He looks down at the city
below them and says, "Alright.. lets see where these Decepticons are.."
Roadrunner Hoverbike picks on the strike, and doesn't need more than that in
order to completely ruin the element of surprise DepthCharge and herself were
having up to this point. With a set of sirens apparently taken from an old Police
Patrol bike, she swoops down towards the Decepticons and broadcasts loudly "THIS
IS NYPD! YOU ARE IN VIOLATION OF TV LAW, PLEASE CEASE OR YOU SHALL PAY THE
CONSEQUENCES!" obviously, she doesn't seem much of a threat as she swoops down
towards the Cons' position.
Fulcrum would REALLY be wasting time if he waited for Comcast to make an opening.
He'd have better luck throwing rocks at the window. The Red Seeker tries not to
think of the emulation of an Autobot with the equivalent of his armour that
Fulcrum tested his new weapon on as the entrance melts away. When a
sufficiently-sized hole is created, Comcast bursts through. "HUMANS!" He cries,
tearing through the 4th and 5th stories of the vast structure, "Your documents
and records belong to the DECEPTICONS now!" Straxus, he thinks, will I /ever/ get
tired of this? The screechings of the Junkion wench are irrelevant to Comcast as
she melds into the cities numerous background noises.
Fulcrum makes to follow Comcast through the hole, but turns at the sound of
sirens, his optics flickering in a series of rapid blings as he beholds... a
flying motorbike? "What? Is this some sort of human trick?" he mutters. "Begone,
strange flying motorcycle" he intones. "You are in violation of the laws of
casualty. Motorbikes are not flying vechiles."
DepthCharge observes Songbird racing at the Decepticons and, though ruining the
element of surprise, you have to admire her guts. Unlike the Junkion, DepthCharge
doesn't rush straight on in. Instead, he opens up an internal compartment and
rummages around looking for something. Looking for his sEcReT weapon! It is then
that he finds it. A Quarter! Soaring through the sky, DepthCharge calculates the
current wind and falling distance and then drops the quarter towards Fulcrum.
Behold MY new weapon, heat wave boy! And it only cost me a quarter!
Roadrunner Hoverbike continues on her flight down towards the Decepticons,
broadcasting loudly "I FLY THEREFORE I AM!" the only really logical explanation,
adding on top of it "you can fly if you try!" she continues towards the hole made
in the building, which Fulcrum currently blocks. "The law must be obeyed! Obey my
dog and move!"
Comcast tears through the poorly-constructed building. A human who was too slow
to run away is quickly scooped up into his hand and held in front of Comcasts
optics, fiercely glowing red. "Your archives, worm." He says, somehow making his
voice sounding even more mechanical, for effect. "Where are they?" The weak beast
feebly points to a section of the building. Comcast's intimidating face shifts to
an evil grin, as he blasts the doors off with is disruptor. Let Fulcrum deal with
the apparent nuisance outside.
This can't be an Autobot, can it? Because they don't fly as a rule, except for...
It is then that Fulcrum's thought processes are interrupted by a quarter
impacting at terminal velocity with his arm. "AUGGH!" he cries out as the coin
lodges itself in his armor and he looks up for the source of the projectile.
"YOU!" he grinds as he spots DepthCharge's familar silhouette. "And THIS must be
one of your PETS!" Fulcrum spits, turning his now hate-filled optics back to the
approaching bike. "Graah! I should have known you vermin would show up quicker
than anticipated.." Raising one arm, Fulcrum lets out an irritated volley of
low-powered heat beams at the bike, cursing the fact that he needs to be in MiG
mode for the weapon to fully charge.
You evade Fulcrum's Heat Ray <Low> attack.
Roadrunner Hoverbike is rather maneuverable and evades the strike in her wild
charge for the hole in the wall of the building. "Naughty naughty..." she intones
at Fulcrum's charge. Extending something of a lance from her side, she thrusts
right at him, emitting "I am not Delilah, meow, I'm a knight of the round table,
my thoughts are for-mid-able!"
You strike Fulcrum with sword.
DepthCharge offers a wave towards Fulcrum, calling out, "Hellooo Decepticon
Fulcrum. We just happened to be /flying/ through the area and noticed that you
damaging terran property. I hope you have a good explanation." DepthCharge
watches as Fulcrum shoots at Songbird and he says, "Now, now. Is that really
necessary? I know you get all annoyed at other people being in 'your' airspace.
But can't we be civilised? In a civilised society, individuals don't lash out
with violence at each other. They discuss their differences over tea. Hmm.."
DepthCharge considers and reaches inside an internal compartment and pulls out a
tea pot. Weighing it in his hand he soars somewhat higher into the sky and drops
that too, in Fulcrum's direction.
Comcast reaches his free arm into the archive. He begins to accumulate several
hard-copy samples of earth media. Excellent. "The files have been acquired Ful...
ah." he says, as a shambles of a cycle.. in the AIR.. stabs his seeker comrade.
Human in hand, he starts to make his way to the outside of the building.. (No
DepthCharge's deadly Crockery Attack(tm) misses it's angry bearded target.. not
for any fault of the Autobot, but because Fulcrum is driven through the hole in
the side of the building by a fricken MOTORBIKE! Which has a LANCE! Crashing
through the already chaotic offices with a lance jammed into his side does little
to improve the blacksmith's temper. "GRRAAH!" he grinds, grabbing his hammer from
its chain at his waist and swatting at the irritating machine that rammed him.
Fulcrum strikes you with Blacksmith's Hammer for 19 points of damage.
You are hit for 19 by Blacksmith's Hammer and are now on 58 endurance and 0
Well, well. It seems that there will be no tea today, for Fulcrum. And, since
they have now entered the building DC can't drop anything else on Fulcrum. Now
what is he going to do with that anvil, safe and piano? Oh well. DepthCharge
floats on down to ground level and calmly walks towards the hole in the wall,
emitting as he does so, "Listen. This is the last chance you will get. Stop
fighting, drop anything you have stole and leave now. Else, we will have to
activate The Slapper (tm). And I know you don't want us to do that."
Roadrunner Hoverbike emits in a sing-song taunting voice "Naughty boy, naughty
boy, what will you do? Now they've played a trick on you! Tee hee..." with that
she releases the lance from its position, as it gets drawn back inside her frame.
She doesn't get the time to move away however, as she's bashed to the ground, her
antigrav plate turning off while the wings extend back to the back of the bike.
"I say heeyy! I say hoo! I say who and wha' did the heck you do it for....?" of
course this little complaint is followed by asharp taser right back at Fulcrum,
eye for an eye after all. "I didn't start the fire..."
You strike Fulcrum with taser.
Comcast stows his acquired files into his chest compartment just as Fulcrum
crashes through the opening, the motorcycle following. He watches DepthCharge
dive outside the opening. Once he's hit the ground and said his silly little
threats, Comcast leaves the building in the same way he entered. He looks down
and shouts to the Autobot, who was dropping things on Fulcrum not too long ago.
So it should be okay for Comcast to follow suit. Drop stolen items, huh? "You
mean I can't keep my new pet?" he sardonically asks the Autobot, shaking his
STOLEN human in his right hand. "Okay then..." As he throws the flesh beast up
high in the air, and readies his weapons for the noble fool to make his
predictable save... (no attack again.)
Fulcrum recognises that incredibly irritating speech pattern now! "Wait..You're a
Junkion!" he spits, "Like that scrap pile ArcanAAAARRG!" Fulcrum finishes as
electricity earths itself through his frame. Ooh, bad move. Fulcrum's
particularly sensitive to being shocked, what with Dynamo electro-burning off his
beard recently. Letting out a curse, Fulcrum draws back one heavy, jet-mounted
boot, swinging it forward in an attempt to kick the annoying machine back out
that hole. Of course, if he succeeds, Comcast may get a motorbike to the small of
You evade Fulcrum's *PUNT* attack.
DepthCharge would really show you if he ignored the human, wouldn't he? WOULDN'T
HE? But alas, he is as predictably Autobot as all other Autobots (except cRaZy
Victory Leo). As Comcast launches the human into the air, DepthCharge leaps up
into the sky and soars towards the terran. As he flies, DepthCharge's chest
begins to glow a brilliant electric blue as energy flows over his form. The blue
aura around DepthCharge suddenly shifts and morphs over the falling human,
solidifying into a protective forcefield. As DepthCharge catches the forcefielded
human he mutters to himself, "One day I really have to find out how Autobot
Dynamo levitates things.."
Roadrunner Hoverbike transforms and rolls out of the way in time to avoid playing
the part of a football, as fun as it may seem in general, practically it really
isn't much fun to be hurled into the air in this manner. "Get down, make love!"
she shouts at Fulcrum, quite upset, as she stands up and straightens her metallic
mini-skirt. "Put out the fire, you need a bullet like a hole in the head, let's
all be friends and stop live in a lie...so let me live, leave me alone, and let
this tv station broadcast on!" she doesn't attack this time, but prepares to
react in case Fulcrum should try something.
The cool motorcycle twists and shifts and seems to be rising on it's rear wheels,
in the end of this procedure you find yourself looking at the Junkion's
communication expert, Songbird.
Comcast laughs at the foolish Autobot showing concern for the flesh creature.
This is almost too easy, he thinks, lining up his disruptor rifle at precisely
where he expected DepthCharge to catch the human.. eases the trigger, and..
STRAXUS! How long has this Autobot had a forcefield? Comcast fires anyway.. but
mostly out of anger and frustration than the belief that he will cause some
Comcast DepthCharge evades his disruptor attack.
Fulcrum's ever present scowl deepens. "Can't you useless piles of rust speak
clearly for once in your pathetic existances?" Frustrated by Songbird's
incoherance, Fulcrum looks around, optics finally settling on a large-ish wooden
desk, which he suddenly grabs and HURLS at Songbird, knowing the femme expects an
attack, but hoping she doesn't expect /this/...
Fulcrum strikes you with Catch! for 10 points of damage.
You are hit for 10 by Catch! and are now on 50 endurance and 0 injury level.
DepthCharge hmms as a disruptor beam bounces off the forcefield that is being
projected around the human. He sighs and shakes his head, doing a small
loop-de-loop in the air and disappearing behind a building to safely deposit the
human somewhere. With his pReCioUs cargo safe, DepthCharge flies back to the
scene of conflict and hovers in front of Comcast. "Decepticon CodpieceCast, isn't
it? I haven't really encountered you before but please note this. You ever use a
human as a hostage in front of me again, and I will ensure you are deposited at
the deepest depths at bottom of the ocean where no one will ever find you. Ever"
There is no anger in DepthCharge's voice. And it doesn't sound like a threat.
Rather, a simple statement of a fact. With a nod, DepthCharge turns to listen at
the commotion going on inside the building and says to Comcast, "Please step
aside, there's a good Decepticon."
Songbird looks closely at Fulcrum, upset that he would be so eager to cause
destruction in a tv station of all places! Then she ker-blinks! when instead of a
shot or kick or a punch a large desk is thrown at her, flattening the small femme
to the floor as she squirms to get out from under it. "Hey!! HEY!! HEY!!! It was
the D.N.A.! That made me this way....I feel so inarticlate! All I am saying is
give peace a chance!" still not attacking in hopes the Decepticon will go, she
does reaches for her Pretty Gun<tm>.
Comcast stares at this Autobot as he talks to him. No wonder Fulcrum hates him
so. Depthcharges tirade over, he shakes his head, a bleak smile returning. "You
want me to drop what I took, and then you subject me to empty threats when I do
exactly what I was told," he says in a taunting tone. "You Autobots are always
full of foolish contradictions." Comcast transforms and kicks his afterburners,
bursting towards Depthcharge, barelling away just at the last second to slash the
Autobot with his sharpened wings.
Comcast's arms move towards his back as his chest and wings shift themselves
until he once again resembles an F-15 fighter jet.
F-15 Jet <Comcast> manages to strike DepthCharge with his Wing blade.
Fulcrum appears satisfied that Songbird is no real threat. "Comcast!" he cries
out, sticking his head out of the window. "Stop wasting time! Where are these big
crates of data tapes we came for?" Yes, in Fulcrum's world, everything worth
stealing comes in big crates. And is guarded by humans wearing yellow boots and
DepthCharge ows and places a hand on his cut chest. He looks at Comcast and
frowns. His options are rather limited in a city, he can't use his rockets or
anything. But an electrical blast should not cause any damage to the surrounding
area if he misses. "Fine. If that's how it is going to be.." DepthCharge says.
Deep with DepthCharge's metalic form a loud hum begins to slowly build as
DepthCharge's electro-generators come online. The mechanical hum begins to slowly
rise in pitch and the crackling of high voltage electricity can be heard
eminating from the ice-blue torso of the Autobot.
DepthCharge raises his right arm in the air and a large panel on his lower right
arm slides open. With a slight *click* DepthCharge's Electo-Booster extends up,
crackling with suppressed electrical current. Levelling his arm weapon Comcast's
way, DepthCharge unleashes the electrical current that has been generated within
DepthCharge misses F-15 Jet <Comcast> with his snaking tendrils of electricity
Songbird's optics flicker as she steps closer to Fulcrum and taps him on his leg.
"Tell me what you want what you really really want to do...?"
F-15 Jet <Comcast>'s voice booms out through his underbody's speakers. "The data
has been acquired, Fulcrum! If you want to retreat now.. I suggest you get out
of-aah!" He is cut short by the tendrils of electricity that close in on him.
Because Seekers are teh BEST, he outruns the attack until it dissipates. Comcast
then circles tightly in an open intersection area, and lines Depthcharge dead
centre in his trajectory. "Autobot pest!" he spits at Depthcharge Letting lasers
fly at the irritation to his mission.
F-15 Jet <Comcast> manages to strike DepthCharge with his laser.
Fulcrum's head whips around and he scowls at the dimminutive femme tapping at his
leg. "I want you to repair your vocoder so that it transmits in a coherant
fashion, instead of the stream of gibberish it currently spouts." The bearded
seeker thinks about backhanding the annoying Junkion, but then decides on a more
pleasing alternative. Fulcrum reaches out to grab at her tapping arm, and
attempts, if successful, to drag/throw her out the hole.. directly at his hated
Fulcrum succeeds in grasping Songbird, throwing her off-balance.
DepthCharge's form is peppered with laser fire, but it doesn't seem to do much
except make him wince in annoyance. He says to himself, listening in, "So,
Decepticon CodpieceCast has whatever they came here for. That means he needs to
be stopped." Taking to the air, DepthCharge begins to fly straight at Comcast
with his hands extended ala Superman. Let's see if DepthCharge is faster than a
DepthCharge strikes F-15 Jet <Comcast> with fly by smash.
"Geronimooooo!!!" comes the high pitched screech of the airborne Songbird,
swiftly sailing on a trajectory towards a collison with DepthCharge, strange
enough, after the initial moment of panic she does chants "I can fly, I can fly,
I can fly!"
Rampage soars down into view from the skies above. Rampage has arrived.
F-15 Jet <Comcast> collides head-on with DepthCharge.. ouch. At least at these
speeds the Autobot hopefully hurt himself as well. "The name is COMCAST," he
calls, not bothering to turn his speakers down with the Autobot in close range.
The Red Seeker transforms, and lets off a shot from his rifle before kicking back
with his bootjets, "and you would do well to remember it, Autobot."
The sounds of gears whirring and a jet engine dying down can be heard, as Comcast
shifts his form into his natural state.
Comcast manages to strike DepthCharge with his disruptor.
Rampage enters the area, replying to the backup call across Decepticon broadband
channels. He quickly scans the area and heads towards the Decepticon signal
arrays in the area. As he comes upon the skirmish, he draws forth his lightining
rifle and lands down near the battle.
Fulcrum just stands there at the mouth of the hole, watching Songbird's
trajectory with a frown. Did he remember to compensate for wind speed and
direction? Ah well..
Fulcrum DepthCharge evades his Songbird - Happy Thoughts And Pixie Dust Not
DepthCharge is peppered with a disrupter. Normally it wouldn't hurt him, but
added to all the other small hits Comcast has succeeded against him, they are
starting to mount up. Still, he has some time to go yet before he needs to be
concerned. He pauses as he notices Songbird fly by before saying "Decepticon
Comcast?" as he soars closer to the Decepticon, "Well, nice to meet you." And
aims a punch right at Comcast. Silly DC, you are meant to shake hands, not punch
DepthCharge misses Comcast with his punch attack.
Songbird meanwhile continues to sail down wards as she misses DepthCharge,
apparently she can't fly in both modes, and doesn't quite manage to transform in
time. She just crashes into the ground face down, in a very cartoon like fashion,
to her credit she even plays the WB cartoon theme after she crushes down. For a
long while she's not even moving.
Comcast laughs cruelly as Depthcharge misses his mark yet again. Given his
current combat prowess, the pleasure is all mine, he thinks. Primus, however did
this waste of time become such a threat to Fulcrum? He kicks away from his
opponent with his bootjets, then transforms and kicks his jets one more time,
hurtling himself straight towards Depthcharge..
Comcast's arms move towards his back as his chest and wings shift themselves
until he once again resembles an F-15 fighter jet.
F-15 Jet <Comcast> DepthCharge evades his ram attack.
Rampage watches as the battle continues to unfold and sees Songbird falling out
of the window and crashing to the ground. Assuming that Fulcrum has the situation
under control, he rushes into the battle with Comcast, since he appears to be
having a little trouble hitting his foe. The fierce warrior begins to charge,
then leaps into the air. He summons forth his thermo-sword in mid air, then fires
his anti-grav thrusters as Comcast goes charging past him. He fires the thrusters
once more, landing down in front of Depthcharge. He quickly inverts his sword,
attempting to put a hurting on the Autobot's jaw with the sword's hilt.
Rampage manages to strike DepthCharge with its sword hilt.
Fulcrum figures it's time to take to the air, much as he enjoys DepthCharge
getting seven assorted kinds of crap kicked out of him. But still.. this is just
too good an oppurtunity to miss. "DepthCharge" the blacksmith broadcasts as he
transforms into his saucy MiG mode. "Once more you will have to live with the
knowleged of your pathetic failure... The Himalayas... Des Moines....Cybertron...
all have been testaments to Decepticon strength.. and your own, personal
weakness!" Fulcrum circles the battlefield, taking the time while his foe is
distracted to line him up for the perfect blast.. from the dreaded HEAT RAY!
Fulcrum crouches, then leaps up, his joints screeching as he transforms into a
grey and green MiG-29.
Okay, this isn't good. Not good at all. With time DepthCharge could have taken
Comcast, but now with Rampage on the scene and Songbird down, it is just
DepthCharge against three Decepticons. Oh happy days. Rampage's sword hilt
smashes into DepthCharge's face and the Aquabot falls down towards the ground,
dazed. At the last moment his anti gravs kick in and he controls himself enough
to land where Songbird fell. He is vaguely aware of Fulcrum's taunts, but he
doesn't have time for any witty comebacks. He is too concerned with his own
survival. Concentrating, DepthCharge is bathed in a blue aura once again and he
throws his hands up in the air. The aura flows up his arms and morphs into a
glowing sphered forcefield around both DC and Songbird. DepthCharge says as he
concentrates on keeping the forcefield up, "Junkion Songbird, are you alright?
Things have become a little too heated here. A tactical withdraw would be
DepthCharge successfully activates a powerful protective forcefield, shielding
him from the next attack.
Songbird shifts slightly on the ground, before slowly lifting herself with her
hands and shaking her head "Ow..." she comments quietly, before collapsing to the
ground again "Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall..." she
mutters at DepthCharge as some parts fly out of her smashed torso.
F-15 Jet <Comcast> circles about again. With Fulcrum focusing on the Autobot and
Rampage in the area as well, nobody is paying attention to poor little unconcious
Songbird.. what better way to study Junkion's behaviour to television than with
an actual junkion? He banks away from the now-distracted Depthcharge to transform
at the feet of Songbird, readying his rifle for possibly movements.
You intercept a radio transmission from Comcast to Fulcrum: The Junkion is
inactive. Request permission to capture her as a live specimen for research into
the inner workings of Junkions?
Comcast transmits a message via radio. Fulcrum receives a radio transmission.
The sounds of gears whirring and a jet engine dying down can be heard, as Comcast
shifts his form into his natural state.
His hunter's instinct taking over in battle, Rampage moves in on his prey. He
charges to the spot where the two injured combatants are shielded. He fires off
two low voltage blasts attempting to stun his opponents, but they are abosorbed
by the forcefield. Frustrated, he lets out a loud growl, but continues to bear
down on the pair.
MiG-29 <Fulcrum> continues to circle, cursing as DepthCharge activates that all
too convieniant force feild of his. "Coward!" he broadcasts, a sudden beam of red
light shooting out from his wing-mounted heat rays and impacting on the field
with a sudden flare of light, the beam staying continuing to stream out,
intensifying in power as the MiG circles.

DepthCharge's optic visor as the forcefield drains away his energon, but he still
has some time yet. Unless the Decepticons all open fire. He says to Songbird,
"Well, when I lower this forcefield, will you be able to make a break for it?
Can't you.. do that junkion thing you do to put yourself back together? I should
be able to keep this thing up long enough to give you time to do it.." It is then
that Fulcrum's heat beam knocks out his forcefield. Doh! But he still intends to
give Songbird time to 'fixme' and then get out of here if she wants. Wheeling his
electro-booster about dangerously, he tries to distract the Decepticons by
unleashing a volley of rockets from his chest. Lets see who they hit.
DepthCharge misses Comcast with his rocket-torpedo things. attack.
Songbird blinks, and suddenly she seems to be posessed as she clings onto
DepthCharge wildly. "No disassemble Number 5! Johnny 5 is alive!!!" she cries out
in panic, clinging to him wildly, while reaching with her other hand for her
pretty gun, aiming to fire a shot at the approaching Comcast.
You strike Comcast with Really Pretty Gun.
Comcast dives well away from the missile barrage. The fact that the blue energy
surrounding him and Songbird disappeared was kind of a giveaway that Depthcharge
was about to strike back. He quickly radios a message, unaware of the abilities
of the Junkion. He levels his rifle at Depthcharge again and shoots..
You intercept a radio transmission from Comcast to Rampage: Get him away from
that Junkheap, Rampage! She will be invaluable to my research!
Comcast transmits a message via radio. Rampage receives a radio transmission from Comcast.
Comcast manages to strike DepthCharge with his pistol.
Rampage receives a radio transmission and quickly acts. Already as close to the
pair as he could get while the forcefield was up, the Predacon forces his way
between the beat up pair. Now wielding his thermosword, Rampage looks to the
Autobot with a smile upon his visage and optics glowing crimson red, the hunter
calmly states, "You're mine, Autobot." He then hefts his sword high above his
head and swings down towards his prey with all the force his arms can muster.
Rampage manages to strike DepthCharge with its thermo-sword.
"GRAAH!" Fulcrum emits, as Rampage and Comcast obscure the PERFECT shot he had
lined up on DepthCharge. "You're IN my WAY! IDIOTS!" Irritatedly, Fulcrum
switches targets, his heat ray projectors humming dangerously. Junkions are
reported to be notoriously hard to totally disable.. let's put that to the test..
You evade MiG-29 <Fulcrum>'s Heat Ray <High> attack.
DepthCharge now has Songbird half clinging to him. Well, that's good. Means she
will be easy to take care of, in such close proximity. Out of the corner of his
optic visor he spies Rampage coming at him with a sword but, trying to juggle a
junkion with one hand and a electro-booster with another, doesn't leave him with
many options. So he allows the blade to slice into his shoulder with a muffled
cry. He says, pushing Songbird away from him, into what he hopes is a free area
"Now! Take to the air Junkion Songbird!" and DepthCharge whips a kick towards
Rampage to try and dislodge the sword from his shoulder so he too can escape.
DepthCharge misses Rampage with his kick attack.
Songbird cries out while clinging to DepthCharge, muttering over and over "No
disassemble Johnny Five, Number Five is alive!!!" and then as he struggles with
Rampage, she's shifted just in time so Fulcrum's heat ray misses her. However,
one can never be just lucky, and the wheel quickly turns as she is now tossed
right at Comcast's feet. "Noooo!!!" she calls out in aggravatted agony. Not
understanding how an alley could have tossed her towards an enemy she was warning
him about, even if her Junkion speech may have put a hamper on his comprehension
of her words. Finding herself like this before Comcast, she reaches for her
pistol and immediately fires a shot at him. "BREAK ON THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE!
STEP ASIDE TO THE OTHER SIDE!"
Comcast evades your Pistol attack.
As the sword dislodges from the Autobot's shoulder, Rampage catches the kick
coming for him. He quickly drops to a knee, under the swinging leg of
Depthcharge. The Predacon then throws his own leg out in a sweeping motion
towards Depthcharge, attempting to bring him down to the ground and regain the
Rampage DepthCharge evades its leg sweep attack.
"Pesky incoherant junk construct!" Comcast blurts out as he manages to knock
Songbird's aim off just enough to get out of the way. He is getting annoyed with
being continually hampered by this Autobot-offshoot and the foolish DepthCharge.
He brings his hand back calmly saying "Try to run," and swings it back, hoping to
knock the weapon from her hands. "Try to hide."
You evade Comcast's Seeker Pimp Slap attack.
MiG-29 <Fulcrum> continues swearing as his allies are STILL ruining his shot.
"Move! MOVE!" he broadcasts. Ah, what the scrap. He'll just shoot anyway. It's
just too bad that his Heat Ray needs time to charge, or DepthCharge would be
MiG-29 <Fulcrum> DepthCharge evades his Jetwash attack.
DepthCharge is getting pretty beat up here, he is staggering and his once fine,
smooth Aquabot armour is all dented and ripped. At least he has that sword out of
his shoulder, but that wound is starting to link energon at a rate he should be
concerned about. But he cannot retreat whilst an alloy is still here, and she
seems to be having trouble with Comcast. Staggering back and avoiding a leg
sweep, the Aquabot concentrates and finds a little energy left in his reserves,
which are pumped through his electrical generators and into his booster. As the
booster splutters and powers up a stream of electrical energy flies at Comcast.
DC - The Autobot who cared too much. Once the blast is unleashed, DepthCharge
notices one of Fulcrum's cRaZy attacks impact mere meters away from him and he
thinks . o O (I'm really getting too old for this type of thing.)
DepthCharge misses Comcast with his snaking tendrils of electricity attack.
Songbird struggles with Comcast to keep hold of her pistol, using momentarily
only one hand as she tries to slap Comcast's hands away from her own pistol,
crying out "No disassemble number five, I've gotta be free as a bird!"
Comcast evades your slap attack.
Comcast is now getting REALLY frustrated about now. Fulcrum yelling at him when
he's already away from Depthcharge. Not that it will stop Depthcharge from
launching his electrical attack again. He falls down ducking the attack, trying
to pin down the Junkion. Why can't she just pass out? His blade appears from
subspace in his hand. "Just... FALL, will you!" he says, angrily stabbing her in
her already damaged chest area.
Comcast strikes you with blade for 8 points of damage.
You are hit for 8 by blade and are now on 56 endurance and 0 injury level.
Rampage sees the Autobot getting away as his leg sweep misses, albeit a slow
staggering escape. The cunning warrior decides it's time to pin down the opponent
and inflict some severe punishment. As such, he quickly transforms. As the tiger
lands down, it hits the ground and immediately leaps towards the Autobot. As it
pounces upon Depthcharge, the tiger attempts to dig into it prey with razor sharp
claws, taking the Autobot down with it's momentum.
Rampage leaps into the air, arms and legs compact towards his torso to form paws.
His robot head disappearing and a fierce tiger's head replacing it. Landing down
in stride, the tiger prepares for the hunt.
Tiger DepthCharge evades its razor sharp claw attack.
MiG-29 <Fulcrum> is targeting DC again when Rampage LEAPS between his crosshairs.
"You... stupid... piece...of...." Fulcrum is incoherant with rage, and theeeeeese
close to just opening fire on the Tigercon. But no, he couldn't do that. So he
does the next best thing, searing a line of horrible burning doom right beside
the Predacon. And DC of course. (no attack, but that would have come mighty
DepthCharge watches his blast go wide. Still, not good enough. Everything he
throws at Comcast misses. He half dives, half stumbles out of the tiger's deadly
path and carefully watches between Rampage and Comcast as he gets back to his
feet, weighing up which is more of an immediate concern. He then witnesses
Comcast stab at Songbird. Well, not much of his energy reserves are left, but
enough for some low yield blasts. He growls as he hurls ball lightning Comcast's
way, "Leave her alone."
DepthCharge strikes Comcast with ball lightning.
Songbird struggles wildly as Comcast pins her down, kicking and punching at him,
her pistol by now dropped from her grasp. As he stabs her through her already
damages chest she opens her mouth wide and lets out such a scream, that all
around could definitely hear, not a regular scream, this one is most definitely a
sonic attack...and it's aimed right by Comcast's audials, even as he's charged by
Comcast evades your disruptor attack.
Unfortunately, the lightning struck Comcast when the knife was withdrawn from
Songbird.. it would have been great if some of it conducted into her. And the
sonic attack was a bad plan.. Comcast's sensitively tuned ears means he was aware
of the attack well before it was made, and has ample time to dodge it. The Red
Seeker attempts to hold the annoying Junkion down by overpowering her. If only he
had a hand free to cover her mouth.
Comcast succeeds in grasping Songbird, throwing her off-balance.
Tigerwas perfectly content on toying with his prey until a blast from the
unfriendly skies. Momentarily distracted and in the rage of battle, the tiger
emits a menacing growl towards the sky then unleashes a volley of rockets towards
the seeker. It emits, "Ya beter not fire on me again or next time I'll aim." It
then gets it's head back into the hunt, starting to again stalk it's prey.
Well FINALLY! With Rampage out of the way, Fulcrum can unleash the true awesome
doom power on his foolish doomed foe. Doom. With an audible crackle, twin red
beams of metal-melting heat lance out, directly for the thrice-accursed
DepthCharge. Fulcrum knows for a fact that the Aquabot has internal ballast
tanks.. lets see that water BOIL
MiG-29 <Fulcrum> manages to strike DepthCharge with his Heat Ray <High>.
DepthCharge continues to try and give Songbird the opportunity to flee, so that
he can flee as well. Oh, how he wants to be back in Autobot City, in is secure
repair bay. Probably the only thing that is keeping him going through the hurt
and pain is the though that it will all be over soon. He sees Comcast wrestling
with Songbird and starts to stagger over to kick Comcast in the teeth or
something, but he is halted in his tracks by a searing painful heat. Sure, he was
in pain before, but this is five times as bad. Little known fact. DepthCharge is
designed for deep sea operation. As his systems are at their peak when in super
cold environments. On the other hand, they function under very heavy stress when
in extreme heat. As the heat engulfs him the Aquabot falls to his knees, crying
out. Armour fractures and melts whilst the sound of popping capacitors within his
form can be heard. As heat builds and builds, causing him to slump face first
into the ground, one thought of escape rattles through his stressed core.
Forcefield. Let's just hope he has the power to do it. Slowly, amongst the red
haze, blue energy begins to swirl. It flickers and dies, before coming back to
life again. This occurs about three times before eventually a very tiny, small
forcefield surrounds DC's form, blocking off the heat wave.
DepthCharge successfully activates a powerful protective forcefield, shielding
him from the next attack.
Songbird shrieks in panic when she's held firmly in Comcast's grasp, trying her
best to flail against it weakly, slapping and punching and kicking, but with the
toll of her injury and that not at all nice fall she took, she's not faring so
well. "I want to break free! Set me free! Release me from your spell and let me
"One way, or another, I'm gonna getcha," Comcast says as he smiles evilly at the
thrashing Junkion. He carries the pinned Songbird up with him, far away from
DepthCharges and their attacks that very seldomly might connect. "I will secure
this one elsewhere, Fulcrum, enjoy your new weapon!" He says. Hey. He earned it. </pre>
