Yes, go this way. On 2nd level, just have 4 men each side (1 with ASL and 1 with SL).

Thanks !

Man, the pirates are taking it in the face with Activations. Thus demonstrating why having decent REP leaders in squads is so vital.

The Tiger Squad on the 2nd level splits up, going down the two corridors splitting off the main corridor. No pirates in sight.

On the 3rd level, Orili moves 3" to the bridge door with his fireteam and opens it, seeing 5 unconscious pirates lying on the floor. "Oh, really?" he says. [See what I did there?]

Cpt. Dogan is the closest. Orili can move another 5" and can reach any part of the bridge. I'm not sure what you want him to do. Maybe try to revive the captain? The rest of your team can only move to the door.

But this makes total sense. The ship has been wrecked with a torpedo and a fighter crash, causing Rep-reducing injuries (theoretically), and now they're hearing a constant "PEW PEW PEW" that they've never heard in the ship before. They can only guess where the sounds are coming from. They're leaderless, shaken up, and lacking direction. They'd probably rather be anywhere else.

What I think we can do is this : must move to each pirate in order to secure their weapon and capture them before they recover from stun.

So I may want Orilli to first secure the Captain.

What do you think ?

I think its safe to say that they will soon have their chance for that ...

Though if pirates have never heard the PEW of Star Army laser rifles before, they've not been at it very long. :mrgreen:

I'm really glad you're with us on this adventure, SquidLord. Makes me feel better knowing you're looking over my shoulder. :D

Though I was really embarrassed when I left Doltock in cover instead of hiding him completely. I was happy when Tod missed, but then Doltock only passed 1 die on his received fire test and ducked back, which basically ended the game for him since he couldn't fire.

If I had instead ended him out of sight, he might have at least taken a sailor or two down with him. :roll:

I said they've never heard it in the ship before. :geek:

Also, it's like I learned nothing from our discussions a couple of weeks ago. The first pirates that came in sight should have used their 2" to get back out of sight and let the enemy come to them. I keep forgetting about that damned 2". I expected to lose, but I probably could've taken down a few SN if I'd just thought more clearly. It's harder when you're trying to manage the entire game, too.

Sounds good. So Orili moves to the captain. I guess that ends the turn, then?
