Galactic Raiders
« on: May 31, 2014, 09:42:02 PM »
THE BATTLE OF THE MILLENNIUM


Hey, fellow Raiders.

I am writing an epic space opera that implements the Raiders as key characters.
If you would like to appear in it, please just say so. I also need to know your alignment with good or evil and whether you prefer a sword or gun. Also, whether you can use Akabo or not.(Read spoiler)

Choose one tools/weapons or three maximum

Here's a quick view of the story:
Spoiler
All events take place in a fictional galaxy. Many species of alien creatures (often humanoid) are in it. Robots are also commonplace and are generally built to serve their owners. Space travel is common, and many planets in the galaxy are members of the One Democracy, while others stray away from it.

One of the prominent elements of Galactic Raiders is 'Akabo', a metaphysical energy that can be harnessed by unlocking a special nerve in your brain those with that ability, are known as Akabori. Akabo allows users to perform various supernatural feats (such as control of elements, uber senses, seeing the future, healing, and mind control) and can amplify certain physical traits, such as speed and reflexes; these abilities vary between characters and can be improved through training, though most people have the same abilities on different levels of power.

Akabo has a major side-effect, Akabo is located in the brain and overuse imbues users with hatred, aggression, malevolence, and other dangerous emotions . The strain can push people over the edge while some willingly use it for nefarious deeds.

This story will feature people from both sides and tell an epic story, I hope you like. Their will be pirates, smugglers, assassins, bounty hunters, corrupt leaders, full-on wars, and I promise that a lot of Raiders will fall, but the fight will never end!

Weapons & Tools:

Stake: They're metal and used for stabbing tough objects quickly and with as much accuracy as possible. Works best on enemies with an open weak point on their bodies.

Dagger:  Daggers have a sharp end and are quite good at slicing through things with the added benefit of also being able to be enchanted.

Rapier:  This weapon is longer, faster, and deadlier than most swords. It translates perfectly for people who enjoy parrying and making their opponents look like fools.

Great sword:  One of the strongest weapons in the game but also one of the slowest. It is extremely heavy but does extreme damage to whoever gets caught in it’s fire. It takes an extremely strong character or power armor to be able to properly wield this in battle.

Tomahawk: A small one-handed weapon mainly used as a projectile, but a properly trained warrior could use it with devestating effects as a melee weapon.

Battle Axe:  A heavy double-bladed axe that can shatter certain weapons if hit in the right spots. It’s heavy and needs both hands to wield it.

Flail: A  spiked mace where the spiked  top is linked to the handle by a chain. It takes time to get used to, but is a very good weapon for breaking armor and generally keeping your opponent on defense.

Warhammer: A larger version of a hammer with a spike on the opposite end that can pierce the most stubborn of armors. It’s a two-handed weapon, but doesn’t slow you down as much as all the other two-handed weapons.

Bo:  A longer version of a staff. It's very light and works well on both offense and defense. Heavier weapons can break them if hit in certain spots.
 
Fighting Gloves: These are gloves that have been modified to have three 2-inch spike-like protrusions from between the knuckles. They deal a surprising amount of damage for weapons of their size.

Spike Shield:  A circular metal shield that has spikes  along its edge. Can also double as a projectile.

Rectangular  Shield:  A metal shield that is so large that a man could hide behind it. It is the best for deflecting attacks, but awkward to carry.

Firearms
PB Rifle- a rifle that fires green bolts of plasma(15 rounds)
PB Pistol- a handheld gun that fires green bolts of plasma(7 rounds)
PB Sniper- a sniper that fires green bolts of plasma(5 rounds)
PB Shotgun- a shotgun that fires green bolts of plasma(8 rounds)

Lego's Ripcord Knives- Knives attached to a ripcord that are used to outmaneuver any opponent and deal the deciding blow(Prolonged use stresses arms)
Lego's Energy Shied- a deployable energy shield that is about 7 in long and 5 ft wide. When not being used, forms into a small disk-shaped blade.(carries three(can be destroyed by a heavy artillery weapon)
Hikari's Tonfas- a stick with a perpendicular handle attached a third of the way down the length of the stick, and is about 17 inches long. It is made from white oak and wielded in pairs.
Viper's Fang's (White Crow)- 2 knives that have are dipped in a rare poison that devours the cells of whoever is attacked.
Vio's Dual Blades-two blades shaped like the eighth musical note. They have Akabo surrounding the blades and are capable of increasing reach and weight.

Technology
The series will feature a number of inventions which figure as plot devices. Patsh (patch capable of directly stimulating the pleasure centers of the brain) is one example.

A Step Train- is an inexpensive form of teleportation. They are small metallic disc that are stepped on and the user announces their destination, being transported to another Step Train booth at their destination. They are inexpensive: a trip anywhere around the galaxy costs five tabs(about 25 cents)

Starships-
are living spaces, vehicles and ambassadors of the space life. A proper starship may range from several hundreds of meters to hundreds of kilometers. The latter may be inhabited by billions of beings and are artificial worlds in their own right, including whole ecosystems.

Androids- are roughly comparable in intelligence and social status to that of the a human. The sentience of advanced androids has various levels of redundancy, from systems similar to that of humans down to electronic, to mechanical and finally back-up brains.

Choose Your Own Adventure Style
The participants get to make key choices at the end of each chapter, these will affect you and make the wrong choice and pay the price. This can end up affecting you in the long-run or affecting another player's path. This will continue until there's one side left standing and prove which Raider or Raiders can survive the horrors of space.

Illusionist=10,000 Tabs
Illusionist's are masters of deception that specialize in the art of illusions. Illusionists are weak in physical combat, as they usually rely on their spells to win when in a fight. One must always be careful around an illusionist though because they can affect all five senses and you could end up running your blade through the wrong person.
Spoiler
Shapeshifting-they can take on the appearance of anybody they wish at anytime they wish. It cannot copy a person's abilities or personality though.

Mind Control-extended time spent around an Illusionist leaves your mind suspectible to mind control. They can control your minds for an hour's span at a time and can only make you do things that fit your moral code. An example would be to tell Coryn to kill an enemy leader. He probably wouldn't. But if you told him the fate of the galaxy depended on it, he just might kill that enemy leader.
Explorer(No Special Items)=10,000 Tabs
Explorers are known to explore and chart unknown territory. If you need maps of an area or want to know the local lore, this is who you talk to.
Miner(No Special Items)=5,000 Tabs
A Miner is skilled in finding rocks, gems, minerals, ores, and metals and in the method of removing such items from the terrain in which they are found, so as to not damage them. They have no combat capabilities, but if you're a treasure hunter, they could prove useful.
3 Great Planets
1.Bosk
-The planet is covered with lush green land, rolling hills, vast oceans, and immense, pristine cities. This is where the Orsa training facilities are located and a vital point for the Orsas. They support the Orsas cause for peace and supply them with food.

2.Sucosis
-The planet is the birthplace of the One Democracy. Its surface is mainly covered in water, with the exceptions of three islands, the largest of which is where all of the Senators and leaders of Orsa meet. The majority of the planet's populace lives in underwater domed cities and cities which float on the planet's ocean surface. They exchange technology for protection from Cosmos Corporation.

3.Crunocia
-The Orsas originated on the planet Crunocia, it is a planet covered entirely by a forest that covers the entire landscape. Deep within the forest, the Great Orsa temple stands and houses the secrets of the old Orsa masters. It is unknown exactly where it is and most Orsa don't bother to look for it because of the deadly animals and hunters in the forest.

ALIGNMENT
Good: They have a general disposition to be good natured and fair, rather than be underhanded and mean, and are usually law abiding. Any character can be good, just like any character can be evil. The degree to which they are good is defined by that character alone, as is their way of being good.

Neutral:  The gray space. This is where most people live in this world. With no taste for neither  good or evil, they find themselves as the most free people in the galaxy because they are their own lawmakers and can hang with who they want.

Evil: Generally people who unlike good people, have no morals whatsoever, and will be ruthless in achieving their goals.

GROUPS
The Fallen:
 The most skilled in the use of Akabo in the galaxy.  Having a high affinity to Akabo has given The Fallen a moderate resistance to magic. Their one purpose is to avenge their ancestor who were wiped out in an earlier war against The Orsas. They have no problem using lies and manipulation to accomplish their goals. The previous Master was slain by Coryn and Lego so his son Fearal has taken charge of the organization.

Wokina:
  Their society is vicious and is always filled with turmoil and constant war. They originated on Orsan just as the Orsas did, but were treated as a slave class and forced to live in underground catacombs called The Ebony Tombs. The Ebony Tombs was and still is a nasty place where unthinkable acts of savagery still occur. Even though they are supposed to be empty since the Wokina gained their freedom. Due to their years in The Ebony Tombs, the Wokina can see perfectly in absolute darkness whereas light can hurt them if they aren’t wearing their helmets that filter it.

Cosmos Corporation:
  Cosmos Corporation is a very profitable private army and organization that lives off war.  Deadly and consisting of hundreds of races, they are almost constantly waging wars and take great delight in helping conquer planets and terrorizing weaker planets into paying them for “protection”.  They don’t care what side they’re on as long as they have more money than the people they’re fighting. Cosmos Corporation members have access to lots of new and experimental tech that others would have trouble finding.

New Age Patriots(NAP):
 A radical group of terrorists who wish to put their king back in power as Emperor of the Galaxy. He was removed from power by the Orsas 5 years prior to the story. Their headquarters are unknown, but the fear they have caused has all the galaxy awaiting their inevitable next attack. They have many contacts throughout the galaxy and are adept at assassinating people who get in their way.

The Flock:
 The Flock is a mystery to the galaxy. Nobody knows how their members are chosen or where they come from. Their end-goals are also unknown, as well as the location of their leader WhiteCrow. It has been said that they dwell in The Deep Space, a area so far out that the Orsas and Fallen have trouble keeping tabs on what goes on out there. Their powers are even more polarizing as their seems to be no clear connection between their abilities. All in all, The Flock seems content to just work right in the background while everyone else leads.

ORSA:
  While not human, they have all of the senses of a human and look it the part too. They are very adept with Akabo, matching that of The Fallen, but are weaker in their resistance to damage . They have vowed to keep the One Democracy in control of the galaxy even if the inhabitants do not wish to be a democracy. Some hate them, some love them, and some just don’t care about them, but everyone acknowledges their presence in the galaxy.
SIA: The secret police of the galaxy. They have even more power than the Orsas to enforce the laws they want and report directly to the president of the One Democracy. They are known to be emotionless killing-machines with the skills to back up anything that they say. Since they follow orders without a second thought, presidents often used them as instruments of punishment, wiping out entire cities and making political opponents disappear. This legacy is still with them to this day and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Fear = Compliance.

One Democracy:
The government in charge of the entire galaxy, for better or for worse, they are willing to keep the galaxy as one using any means necessary. And with a military force of over 30 million on active duty as well as the Orsas, they certainly have the power to do it. As of late, many people question the “peace”  that the One Democracy has created especially since it’s now worse than when every planet had it’s own government.

NEW STAT SYSTEM

*Measure scale from 0-5*

Agility - Dexterity represents a person's physical nimbleness. Used to determine fine motor skills, reaction time, and aiming.

Endurance - The stat representing a character's physical toughness. Used to determine how much damage someone can take and how well they resist poisons, illnesses, etc.

Intelligence - The stat representing how smart a character is. Used to show how skilled a person is, how quickly they learn, how many languages they can speak, etc.

Wisdom - The stat representing a person's wisdom and street-smarts. Used to determine a character's perception, willpower, and decision-making skills.

Charisma - The stat representing a person's force of personality. Used to determine how well someone can influence others by speeches, diplomacy, fear, lying, etc.

Stats are measured in numbers ranging from 1 to 23 as the "normal" levels of stats, 1 being the minimum and 18 being the peak of most warriors potential. Anything from 24 and up is considered Master.

12-15 - Level 2 Threat- Characters whose stats fall into this stat-tier are better than most "normals". Better than 40% of the normal warriors.

20-23 -  Level 4 Threat- Characters who stats fall into this stat-tier are pushing their boundaries to the extreme. Better than 80% of normal warriors.

24+ -  Level 5 Threat- These are characters who are the paragons of their stats and who could easily take on nearly anyone they wanted to. Better than 95% of normal warriors.

NEW FOR-HIRE ALLIES

10,000 Tabs

Warlord: The Warlord is a tactical master. He can hold his own in frontline combat as well as giving support by using his various underlings, usually by commanding them to superior positions than the ones they would have thought of on their own, and he may have protective auras made of his own charisma to increase a team's effectiveness in battle.

Faust: A Faust makes a pact with a higher being who supplies him with Akabo. A Faust that makes a pact with an entity that gives them the power to harm or destroy is usually flawed in some way or disfigured from all of the power. Thus, this type of Akabo is usually heavily offensive and nasty.

The Thief: The Thief, when it is a separate class is a warrior with lower damage, but the ability to steal items from enemies. Sometimes, this can extend even to intangible items, such as experience points, but more commonly includes rare items that cannot be obtained in any other way.

The Assassin: An offensive-rogue that sacrifices technical expertise for better stealth and killing abilities. Often have a variety of weakening and poisoning abilities and are able to cripple a foe to leave him open for allies or to let him die from damage over time. Combines high movement rate with superior sensory and information-gathering skills, and often emphasizes stealth.

Vesterians: Vesterians are natives of the Vester Plains in Crunocia skilled at surviving in the wild. They are totally reliant on archery, but usually does higher damage because of it. Have a variety of trick-arrows arrows to slow or otherwise annoy enemies. Can also heal people using the natural herbs from their native land.

Gadgeteer: Class that relies on technology to achieve ranged controlling effects similar to a wizard. They have guns and bombs as primary weapons, and employ stationary and/or mobile machines on the battlefield.

The Chemist: A Chemist combines items, magic or otherwise, to create potions or bombs for you to use in battle.

Hacker Hackers can get into virtually anything that sends off a signal and considering this is an advanced galaxy, there are many uses that they can serve. Hacking other characters file, defending you from attacks and even bypassing the most secure of systems if they need to.

 After a thousand generations of peace, the One Democracy is crumbling. On Zobri, at the center of civilized space, greed and corruption riddle the Council, beyond even the abilities of Supreme Lord Nates to repair. And in the outlying planets, the Cosmos Corporation dominates the hyperlanes with its gargantuan vessels.
But now even the Cosmos Corporation finds itself assailed from all quarters, preyed upon by pirates and smugglers, and victimized by terrorists, who demand an end to Cosmos's tyrannical practices.

It is a time that tests the mettle of all those who strive to hold the One Democracy together—none more than the Orsa, who have long been the One Democracy's best hope for preserving peace and justice, but the Wokina will do everything in their power to stop them…

Chapter 1
Spoiler
Coryn strolled through the halls of the Orsa Palace. He passed by several trainees, indicated by the necklace made of white feathers they wore around their necks.'I always hated that necklace.' he thinks silently to himself. Coryn was dressed like nearly every other Orsa, he wore fitted-white pants with a white happi over it. A brown belt around his waist holding his pb pistol on his left side and his dartboard on his right. Around his neck, he wore a black band known as a circlet.

Coryn walks through the door and shuts it behind him. He looks around the room, staring at the others seated at a table with 10 seats before sitting near an a blue-skinned Orsa with green eyes."Have I missed anything, Jur'e?" he asked.

Jur'e turns and gives Coryn a glare that made him shrink back a little,"Only the whole meeting. As usual, your late. Grandmaster Hasith should be disappointed to see his prized pupil was promoted to master when he should really have been promoted to janitor. Because all you deserve to protect is our nostrils after Master GingerJoy eats his potatoes and tacos and takes a Kwosh." he turns to GingerJoy who is slowly eating a potato.

Coryn scoots his chair away from Jur'e and next to GingerJoy,"Hey Ginger." he says quietly."What the hell is a Kwosh?"

GingerJoy continues eating,"That's easy. It's when a person uses the restroom and while fighting the good ole battle with their bum, pleasures themselves."

Coryn nods with a scared look on his face,"Oookay?" he says putting as much distance between himself and Ginger.

Zealapeal looked at Ginger and laughed,"Haha, only losers need to Kwosh." he said with one guy and one chick on either side of her one human, another a green-skinned humanoid,"I can't keep the babes off me. Or this weird dude for some reason. Be em from Earth or another planet, the ladies come to me like a baby chick comes to Mama Bird to feed."

Coryn ignores the weird wink the green woman gives him scoots near Grandmaster Hasith,"Master, do you wish to speak to me?"

Hasith nods his head slowly,"Yes, and don't call me master, we are now of the same rank. I see that you missed my whole speech, so I'll give you a quick rundown of what's going on. Recently, an entire crew of workers on a ship named Starhawk were hijacked and are now being held for ransom."

"What does that have to do with us? The G.P.D should be able to handle it." Coryn says with a smirk.

"The Galactic Police Department is not qualified to handle this and Cosmos Corporation owns the ship. If we don't help them, it will drive them further away from the One Democracy and one step closer to rebellion. Reports also say that Everlastin is the leader of the hijackers."

Coryn's eyes widen at the sound of her name,"My former apprentice! What is she doing? Has she really fallen so far?"

"Coryn, I ask that you leave immediatly. Either take Master GingerJoy or Master Zealapeal with you." Hasith orders him.

GingerJoy put down his half finished potato and politely wiped his mouth with a napkin. He called out to Coryn with a soft-Scottish accent that was nearly extinct in this day and age.
"Master Coryn, might I request to come with you? It's easier to fly a ship when you've got an experianced pilot on your hands"
He proudly dusted his steel breastplate, somewhat obselete in the age of laser and plasma, but an ancient family heirloom nonetheless.
"Besides, I feel we've got a common goal in mind, aye?"

Coryn jumps up and walks to the door quickly before turning and saying,"Ginger, you're with me."

Well, the bad guys can't have all the fun!

For those who weren't mentioned in the beginning, will they be mentioned later on or will they start their own adventure?

 Suppose a good rule to introduce is a auto/manual rule. That way, when someone has to leave they can give the game-master or an ally control of their character till they get back. I remember doing this when I ran my own role playing games (on a MLP website...)

Chapter 2
Spoiler
Nabe Man and Vacant walked down the street causing several people to run to the safety of their homes. Vacant smirks and pushes a man off his chair in sits in his seat."Out of the way."

Nabe Man sits across from him,"Man, I can't believe that no one wants to hire us. I mean, we have everything you could want in a bounty hunter, good looks with one noticeable scar on our face, matching black armor, and I even have this badass helmet that protects me while playing soothing noises.

They both quiet down and listen to the sound of water rushing down a river before several gunshots are heard and a lion's growl gets lower and lower, the sound radiating off Nabe Man's helmet.

Vacant pulls out a Daniel Bryan t-shirt,"And I even bought official WWE merchandise," he waves his hands in front of his face,"You can't see these prices getting any lower."

Everlastin approaches in a black cloak, her pistol shining,"You two want a job?"

***
Vacant lies on the floor, holding his bleeding gut,"Damn it, Nabe, you shot me idiot." he says through clenched teeth."Why did you ask me if I was an enemy and I said no for you to still shoot me." He stands up,"I can heal this."

Nabe Man laughs,"You may have been saying no, no, no, but your shirt said yes, yes, yes."

Everlastin raises her voice,"Will you two go do what you're paid to do. Make sure nobody else boards this craft, got it?"

Vacant glances at a monitor,"Too late for that."

WhiteCrow-Solo and Paipis board the craft with ease and destroy the camera.

Everlastin snarls,"Smugglers. Take care of them."

Vacant looks at another monitor,"Orsa ship, west-side heading our way. Two individuals inside.

Nabe Man looks,"Another ship, east-side, beginning to land.

Vacant thinks,"Whose the biggest threat? The smugglers, Orsa, or unknown. I can't trust this chick either maybe I should split my losses and leave Nabe in this death hole."

Vacant's got some choices, but these apply to everyone in the ship and boarding the ship.

Chapter 3

Spoiler
Coryn stared out the window silently as the tiny, spherical, 2-man ship they were on slowly exired the atmosphere of earth.

Ginger's face was grim as well, his mouth set in a slight frown,"It's never easy when you have to go take on an old ally, I suppose it's even worse that this used to your student."

Coryn opens his mouth to speak, but is cut off by a radio transmission,"Hello." the words crackled out."Coryn, are you there it's Lego. Answer me.

Coryn presses a blue button,"Yeah, I'm here." he says."Why are you heading towards the hijacked ship, I thought you hated the Cosmos Corporation."

Lego laughs,"I don't care about the crew or Everlastin. I followed two smugglers who boarded the ship about thirty seconds ago. The Supreme Lord has offered a cool 2 million tabs to whomever brings them back to Zabri. And you know I can't miss an oppurtunity like that. InstaFro is expensive these days."

Ginger speaks up,"Hey, Master Lego, are you already at the boarding bay of the ship?"

"Yes, I'm preparing to exit. It's really quiet though and I don't like quiet." Lego says.

Ginger asks,"Well, if you help us free the hostages and take on Everlastin's thugs, we can help you track down your two smugglers."

Lego laughs,"Me and my little buddy, Cocky the Cockroach, can handle this on our own." He places a robotic cockroach on the ground and pulls out a remote control. The bug moves at lightning speed and slips through a crack underneath the doors. It stands still as Nabe Man walks by and glances around.

He begins to walk away, but stops before exiting and glances around again."Hey, you three guard this door. Don't let anybody come in or leave through this door, I don't want anyone getting any ideas. I'll rush back over here after you guys trigger the alarm alright?"

One of the men says,"But the alarm was disabled earlier by Vacant, how are we supposed to sound an alarm that doesn't work?"

Nabe Man cruelly smiles,"I'm quite sure your screams will work much better than any alarm system to alert us to danger."
***
Coryn and Ginger are immediatly fired on upon reaching the docking bay. They are both forced to jump ship and run in opposite directions upon landing on the ground. Ginger runs to the east and takes out two of them with his axe before running through the double doors being chased by about 5 more.

Coryn pulls out his dartboard and shoots a thug in his chest, nailing him against the wall and the other three flee, having never seen a weapon like that before.

The distant gunshots remind Coryn of Lego and Ginger, he is grabbed from behind by Vacant and elbows him in the stomach. Vacant responds by twisting his left arm and pushing his head down towards the dart in the thug's chest.

Coryn stops himself, his inches from being impaled. He swings his head back into Vacant's nose and both tumble to the ground. They both roll to their feet and Coryn raises his Dartboard and PB Pistol while Vacant holds his PB Shotgun in his left hand and a grenade in the other.

Coryn steps back and sees a door about 6 meters to his left. Coryn fires two rounds at Vacant, who ducks to avoid damage. Coryn takes the time to flee through the door and Vacant presses a button on his armor,"All hands to the west end of the ship."

Ginger comes running down a hallway towards Coryn,"Glad to see you're OK, man." he says out of breath. He carelessly points his gun over his shoulder and shoots the two thugs still chasing him."I've already begun to hate this mission, let's get it over with."
***

Lego make Cocky The Cockroach emit a hissing noise distracting one guard, he takes that chance to open the elevators. He brings the shield forward, spawns it and then pulls it back, smashing them all against the wall. One guard pitifully tries shooting him and Lego grabs the gun from his hand,"No, man. Just no." he chops the man's neck, knocking him out."Now, for my money."
Spoiler

Does Vacant use the grenade or the shotgun?
Does Coryn shoot or flee?
How did Lego sneak by undetected?
Will Ginger rendezvous with Lego or Coryn?
Will Lego go for his allies or the smugglers?
The choice is all theirs.

Chapter 4
Spoiler
WhiteCrow-Solo rummaged the ship's armory with Paipis taking watch at the door. WhiteCrow suddenly begins laughing,"Hell yes." he raises a small crimson red amulet into the air followed by a sword with a crimson red blade,"Yes! We have finally found Dark Lord Tostificer's legacy! Years of searching finally pay off, now if we could only find Lord Monsterful's Cthulhu Armor."

Paipis smiles,"Don't get too eager Crow. You're lucky that we've been on such a good roll as of late. It could shift at any time, nobody stays on top for long."

Whitecrow smiles,"Every king must fall sometime and my reign won't-

"Last one day longer." Lego says."I am placing you under arrest in the name of the One Democracy."

Whitecrow laughs,"We don't report to the One Democracy and never will." He turns quickly and throws a knife at Lego, deflected by Lego's energy shield. Lego looked around for Paipis,"Huh?" he said not seeing him.

Paipis slams Lego into the wall,"You can't defeat the Dashing Duo on your own Orsa." he pushed his knuckleduster's against Lego's face."You should have gave up when you had the chance."

Lego pulls out his knives and thrusts forward, causing Paipis to jump back. Lego throws his knife and knocks Tostificer's amulet out of Paipis's hand,"I see, Tosti's tools eh?"

Lego clutches his knives,"You two think that gives you an edge?" Lego throws his knife at Paipis's head, but redirects it mid-air into WhiteCrow's knife throwing hand.

WhiteCrow laughs,"Do you not remember Tosti's swords power? It powers up the user by pushing their bodies to unmatched levels!" WhiteCrow rushes Lego and is sent flying into Paipis when Lego redirects the momentum away from him.

WhiteCrow throws another knife and it is slapped down by Nabe Man's naginata. Nabe Man spears WhiteCrow into the wall and impales Paipis with his naginata. He turns to Lego,"Your turn."
***
Coryn stops as he and Ginger walk down a long hallway."Ginger, move on. I can't let this guy play cat and mouse with us forever. I'll take him out, right here and now."

Ginger nods and begins to run on,"Okay Master Coryn, I'll move on."

Vacant walks on the end nearest Coryn,"Hey! We got a battle to finish, don't we!? But first."Vacant fires his shotgun at Ginger's exposed back.

Coryn cancels it by firing a well-placed bolt."Your fight's with me."
***
Lego stands up tall,"I will not cower before any foe. I'll bring all three of you in."

Nabe Man smiles,"Let's see about that, Master Warrior."
Spoiler
What will Lego do?
What will Nabe Man do to the smugglers?
What will the smugglers do?
Will anyone pick up Tosti's tools?
Will Coryn head for the hostages, engage Vacant, or aid Lego?(Three vs Two are good odds)
What is Ginger's priority?
