1) "Do you have sand in your ears too? I said back OFF!" Vance manages to quip, focusing all of his powers at keeping Sandman at bay. Marvel Boy TKs Sandman. 7 atk. vs 14 def. Needs a 7. Roll is: (6,4) for a 10 and a hit as Vance's hot streak continues! Once again, Sandman is sent flying back to Q17 by a TK shove!
2) "I can keep dancing like this all day horn-face, but being around you is really starting to cramp my style so why don't you just lie down and get caught up on some of that beauty sleep you REALLY need!" Nova hammers Rhino with another massive haymaker trying put the brickhouse villain down for the count. 9 atk. vs 16 def. Needs a 7. Roll is: (2,2) for a 4 and a miss!
1) "Sheesh, how many times do I gotta pull m'self back together again?" Sandman complains, trudging down the dock for what felt like the millionth time. "Maybe I should just stay by the sub and have a'nudder beer." Sandman moves to N14 again.
2) Mac Gargan shoves Night Thrasher aside and advances on Marvel Boy, hoping to provide some distraction for Sandman. He moves to L10
Sorry about the delay, lost internet access over the weekend, back now though!
New Warriors: Turn 11
1) "Why...won't...you...take...a...HINT!" Nova shouts as he pushes himself to the limit, pummelling Rhino with blow after blow. Nova punches Rhino. 9 atk. vs 16 def. Needs a 7. Roll is: (4,3) for a 7 and a hit! Rhino takes 1 after toughness. Nova takes 2 from the push!
2) "Keep it up Nova, he's staggered!" Dwayne leaps on Rhino's back and tries to unbalance the dazed, and drunk, brute further. 8 atk. vs 16 def. Needs an 8. Roll is: (5,5) for a 10 and a hit! Rhino takes 1 and is knocked back to O8
"I couldn't have hit him that hard." Dwayne observes, as Rhino is staggered and reeling from his relatively minor shove. This guy stands there and takes punch after punch from Nova, but an unarmed Night Thrasher is the one to knock him down? Something didn't add up.
"Outta th' WAY!" Rhino blurts out, looking distinctly green in the face. His arms swinging wildly as he tries to clear some space around him. 7 vs 17, needs a 10. Roll (6, 6) for a critical hit on Nova. Nova takes 2 clicks after toughness and is knocked back to L11.
Night Thrasher looks away in disgust as Rhino loses control of his stomach and empties the contents of this morning's drinking binge all over the dock.
Nova had Charge showing at the time of the attack, so he stays put.
New Warriors: Turn 12
1) "YOU! You hurt Firestar!" Vance shouts, feeling the anger flare up again as he faces off against the Scorpion, lashing out with a blind shove of pure rage! Vance TK's Scorpion. 7 atk. vs 14 def. Needs a 7. Roll is: (2,5) for a 7 and a hit! Scorpion is sent flying by the TK shove to L18
1) "Get AWAY from them!" Vance shouts, expending the the majority of what's left of his power in an explosive burst of telekinetic energy nearly scattering the Sandman to the four winds. Vance TK's Sandman. 7 atk. vs 14 def. Needs a 7. Roll is: (6,6) for a 12 and ANOTHER critical hit (At least it didn't matter this time). Sandman is sent flying yet AGAIN, landing in L16. Vance takes 2 from the push.
2) Night Thrasher overcomes his revulsion and launches himself at Rhino again, aiming a flying kick at his gut. Dwayne charges to P9 and hits Rhino. 8 atk. vs 15 def. Needs a 7. Roll is: (2,5) for a 7 and a hit! Rhino takes 1 and nearly doubles over, even greener in the face!
1) Hurled back violently from Rhino's last drunken swing Nova is nearly knocked out of the sky and only barely manages to cling on to his bucket. "Blue Blazes! Even I've got a limit! There's a lot if willing to let slide but I'm not going to let some drunken moron in a Halloween suit with serious barf breath put one over on me! Why don't you see how you like THIS!" Nova's form is suddenly obscured by brilliant blue light, burning with the intensity of a miniature sun before it's released straight at Rhino in a massive gravimetric pulse! Nova shoots Rhino. 7 atk. vs 14 def. Needs a 7. Roll is: (4,3) for a 7 and a hit! Rhino takes 1 and is KO'ed!
Caught square in the centre of the pulse Rhino staggers, blinks, shakes his massive head and finally manages to mumble "I....don't....feel....so...goood..." before he topples over, head first, like a giant red-fern, the entire pier shaking under the impact of his weight!
"Nova!" Dwayne shouts in surprise "How did you do that?"
Struggling to catch his breath after the massive release of energy Nova just scratches his head and shrugs "I...I have NO idea Thrash-Man... but... am I good or WHAT?"
