Killhouse
The Killhouse is a training facility located adjacent to the firing range that only allows the use of specific paint, rubber, or frangible rounds. The four exterior walls of the tall single-story structure are made from cinderblock and concrete, but the interior is a combination of sand-filled wallboard mounted on rollers with sandbags to hold them in place. The interior is entirely customizable for whatever the instructors or Marines need. Overhead is a series of catwalks for instructors and others to observe and critique what is happening down below.
AWD #313

It's early afternoon Sheridan time, meaning there should be plenty of time for the training exercise and debrief before it's back to Orion for a shower and food. Amos is dressed in his greens with the standard bodyarmour and helmet over the top, his lack of weapon though suggests that he's going to be observing this one. Oh good, we all know how the last one of those went.

Once the expected assortment of D company and MPs arrive he breaks off from talking to a pair of similarly clad marines and turns to address the crowd. "I'll keep this brief becuase I'm sure you're all eager to get stuck in." A glance to Kostas, "Ensign, you'll be running the show in there," then to all of them, "you scenario is a simple take and hold. There's a power station on Picon that the canners have been using and we need to sabotage it, but in a way that leaves us able to reactivate it quickly once we've eliminated their presense from the area. A task which will be a lot easier when we deny them use of the aforemention facility. Your task is to get in there, deliver two technicians to the control centre," he gentures towards the two he'd been talking to, "and hold that position long enough for them to do whatever particular piece of their black arts it is that they need to do. Any questions so far?"

Ynyr is here, standing over by Kostas and dressed in his combat blacks with armour and assorted gear. Damn, it's good to be back and off the sickbay list. Lleu's shot to hell helmet has been replaced with a new one and his old rifle too, both lost on Santos. He's doing a last moment check of his gear as he listens, gaze going to the new gal he doesn't know. The Sergeant studies Kapali before his attention returns to Amos, "No, sir." He glances to Kostas to see if she has questions.

Brina is present, of course, as is Odysseus who is sitting to her left. The dog has a makeshift harness upon which a set of private's pins have been attached, that set up his handler's doing. She is dressed like Lleufer, looking almost like a miniture clone to him, right down to a matching, albeit smaller, set of marblacks and everything. Amos' query as to whether there are any questions is answers with a quick shake of her head.

Having finished sorting the pack she's carrying and shouldering it once more, a brief run down of gear is completed before Kapali focuses forward on the Captain's over view. "Sir, do both technicians have the same technical skill set?"

Neko was running a touch late. She slots herself near the back of the crowd that Amos is addressing, likely hoping no one notices. She's appropriately geared, more or less, so at least there's that. She has no questions.

Reed stands in his full battle dress, at first just checking his kit and his rifle that gets a check over as well, and turns when the Captain begins speaking. He doesn't really look around the the Kill house, it is what it is and trying to figure out before hand, well better to jet get on with it. Trying out a new weapon, a good time to see it its a fit for him, he makes sure the GMAR is ready to go. He nods as Amos explains the scenario, letting his rifle hang on it's combat sling. A shake of his head when the Captain asks if there are any questions "No Sir," before he turns to Kostas. Waiting her instructions as well. The new gal gets a once over as well. Training is a good time to see what she is made of. He does smile as Neko is spotted slipping in.

Kostas's helmet isn't buckled yet, and the shortish Ensign rocks back on her heels a bit, an old habit for when she's listening. "Aye Sir," she responds to the note that she's the presiding in this scenario. Though it's a training scenario, she asks the same questions she might leading out to the field. "Certain percentage of loss before we say destroy it, Sir? Or hold at all costs?"

Lleufer eyes Brina with the young dog, clearly not too sure Odyseuss is up for this yet, but … well, he's got to get introduced to scary shit like explosions and gun fire sooner or later. "You sure you want to bring him along this early, Lance Corporal?" Kapali's and Kostas's questions are a good ones. Ynyr eyes the new gal and then glances at the technitions as though trying to figure out which one of them is more expendable. *cough* Neither, of course.

Amos hadn't actually been expecting the dog and so checks quickly, "You got armour sorted for him yet O'Connell? Since paintballs don't seem to provide enough of an incentive for you lot to dodge we'll be using rubber bullets and I don't want anyone going in without suitable protection." Then to the engineer, "Yes, but if you happen to manage to get one of them killed then it'll take the other twice as long once you reach the control room so I'd advise keeping them both breathing as a priority." Finally Kostas, "if you loose both techs then pull out Ensign, the facility can always be added to the ai wings list of bombing targets. Squad wise though, I leave that to your judgment of the situation on the ground, target is classed as 'high priority though."

"I didn't plan on him going in with us, Sarge," O'Connell explains, "but I did think it'd be a good idea to be here while we get ready to get him used to hustle and bustle. And he should be able to hear what's going on while we're in there so we can start his acclimation." Of course, if Sergeant Ynyr says it might be a good idea to bring the dog in with them she'll go ahead and let Odysseus join them during the exercise.

Neko appears to be paying attention. She at least gives the techs a look-over, as if trying to fix their relative importance in her mind. Still no questions, though she does return Reed's smile with a quick, bright grin.

Nope, Lleu's with Amos on this one, "All right. I think it's likely to scare him and set his training back if you took him in cold turkey. Let's work up to that later." He makes a head tilt to indicate the motorpool if Brina wants to drop him off where he'll be near by but also have someone to keep an eye on the dog.

Kapali nods once, eyeing the technicians for a silent moment, a gleam of mind speculation in her eyes. The dog, in harness and private's pins, is eyed with equal speculation though quite reasonably for very different reasons.

Brina nods to the Captain and Sergeant both. "Not a problem." She gives them a quick smile before jogging off real quick, the dog happy to be able to get a quick bout of exercise in. Won't be but a moment before she's back.

He stands just slightly apart from the others. Getting into the zone perhaps, Reed once more does a quick check. Flash grenades, extra magazines, all the other gear that might come in useful in CQB. As for the dog, he looks at it a bit uncertainly, just a quick glance, before he looks back to Kostas and her orders. As for the Techs, they did get a glance, a very quick one, all he has to do is make sure they live.

Kostas looks over at the dog, considering, though as it's decided, she just nods once. She straps her helmet fully, as she listens to the rest of the instructions. "Aye," she acknowledges. "We'll keep t' standard firin' practices. Short bursts. Engage mind b'fore your weapon. Reed and Ynyr, take point. Y' both got enough 'f an eye t' spot trouble and get an eye for the technical shit. Kapali, you in w' our techies here, don't scare 'em too much now. O'Connell, you an' I in the rear, 'long with Soun so she c'n do her badass coverage when we need it. Any further questions?"

"I am on for bad-ass duty, boss," Neko says, flashing that bright grin at Kostas and taking up her place at the back. Which mostly just means waiting for everyone else to move before she moseys along. Nope, no questions.

Lleufer gives a quick little fly-swat salute to Kostas, "Yes, sir." and with a glance to Reed, goes on up front to get ready to go in. One last check that he does in fact have rubber bullets loaded, not live ammo, then popping the magazine back in, he tightens down his helme and settles his goggles. "Ready." And incidently tests his com pickup, though likely enough they may use hand signals at times if they need to stay quiet.

Babysitting. Got it. Kapali eyes the technicians, again, not at all like she's marking which one to out run if a bear starts chasing them. Not at all. "Aye, Sir," she takes up position with the two technicians to babysit, watching how they move, drawing up plan B-Z to work with as well. Just in case.

As Kostas lays out the order, Reed nods "Aye, Sir," before he turns to grin at the Sargent. His weapon still on safe, not till they enter the show will he switch it. He can't help but chuckle a bit as both Kapali and get their instruction and a softly said "Don't be shooting me in the back, Brina," he says with a wink. He falls in behind the Sargent, taps him on the shoulder and says "Ready to rock, Sargent."

Brina comes back just in time to hear Kostas give the order in which they'll be positioned. "Yes, sir." She is all ready now.

With no further questions apparently coming Amos nods once as Kostas gives out the assignments and then states to her, "Alright then. I'll go and get things rolling inside. Give me a minute and then you're good to go." That said he turns and heads inside, closing the door behind him as he does so.

When the minute passes and the marine senter they find the lights dim, but by no means dim enough to require low-light or torches, more like 'a few light bulbs have gone' dim. Stretching out infront of them is a short corridor with a couple of doors off eaither side before it turns ninty degrees to the left and continues out of sight.

Lleufer goes on in and then waits for the rest of the team as he looks at the hallway. He says very low to Reed, "We need to check the doors. No pass'n any that could let enemies come out behind us." Ynyr glances back to make certain Kostas is all right with that - she's the one giving the orders. A layout or floorplan would have been handy, wouldn't it. The Sergeant looks back to the techs, "Either of you know where it is you need to get to?" He keeps his voice down to a whisper.

Layouts and floorplans are available if asked for, and as Lleufer enquires, one of the techs produces such from a pocket of his armor. Glancing down to it he checks it then whispers back to the sergeant, "take the left at the end, then third right. Up the stairs and then second left."

"Roger that, Sargent. "I'll watch left if you watch right, get to the doors then we can see which is first to take." And with that, the soft click of a safety going off, Reed brings his weapon to his shoulder as he sights down the hall and slightly left, mostly to the door that is on his side. but ready to engage down the hall if need be. As the tech lays out the course he says it softly, mostly to himself "Left, third right, up, second left."

Having given her placement orders, Kostas moves slowly with the others, her eyes peeled for any threats to the rear or sides of the unit; though she seems confident in the pointmen's work, leaving them to it. Her rifle is at the ready, though. As Ynyr and Reed come to the doors and pause, unseen there's a flash of a grin on her face of pride as she perhaps intuits they won't leave those doors unchecked. Her gaze moves towards the corridor though, ready to cover the doorcheckers.

<FS3> Reed rolls Alertness: Great Success.
<FS3> Reed rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Brina falls into step with the Ensign, attentive unlike the last time they did a killhouse type of training. As they pass doors she will check them, not a single one going to be left unchecked by her.

Neko moves along in step, more or less, with Brina and Kostas. Eyes darting and squinted in the dimmed light.

Tech-1 and Tech-2 are shepherded forward by Kapali as the team begins down the hallway, keeping pace with the technicians while at the same time trying to keep them from either falling behind or rushing to far forward. Babysitting, check.

<FS3> Lleufer rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Lleufer rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Ynyr and Reed take turns covering for each other as they each check the doors on either side of the hall. Then the Sergeant covers Reed to let the Corporal check the corner before they go bumbling around it. Nice and easy team work, watchful and quiet as they go.

As the door on the left is approached, Reed hugs the wall before darting a head in and then out. "Clear left," he says softly. Waiting for Llieufer to call his door. All the while the weapon trained down the hall, keeping guard. As they near the turn, he pauses, waiting for the team to move up.

Round the corner is more corridor although there is only one door on the left this time and it's a fair way up. One of the overhead lights is flickering it that anooying way and a few floor tiles are loose, but all still seems quiet.

<FS3> Reed rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Kostas rolls Alertness: Success.
<FS3> Kapali rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Brina rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Neko rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Lleufer rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Kostas waits patiently near the rear, her eyes narrowed slightly as she squints down the hallway, occasionally looking back the way that they've come as well. Her eyes move to the marines on point, watching.

Glancing down the new hall, Reed sees the door as well as the loose tile right at it. He says nothing but points to it, a quick glance to those around him to ensure they see the point. He begins to move down the hall, carefully, till he gets near the tile. He studies it a moment then looks to the Sargent "Engineer?" he asks in a hushed voice. His weapon has never dropped, always down range.

"Pst… looks like a loose tile…" O'Connell gestures towards the spot that looks a bit off, using the barrel of her rifle to indicate the tile that looks like it has come up off of the base of the floor some.

Neko slows as the Marines on point spot that loose tile, her own squinting narrowing down at it. She keeps her rifle well in hand. In case it comes to life, turns into a Cylon, and leaps up to assault them.

Lleufer eases up, mindful of avoiding the /other/ loose tiles as well and pointing them out. He looks at the one and then looks back at the techs, "I doubt they do demolitions. Think we can step over it easily without touching it." It is said very low. Ynyr glances back to Kostas for her orders and as he does so, leans a little to try to listen at the door and put a hand out lightly to test for heat without yet touching it.

Kapali paces alongside the Technicians and signals for the two to hold position beside her, eyeing the hallway and the loose floor tiles that has the attention of the marines on point.

<FS3> Lleufer rolls Alertness: Failure.

"If we have t' leave in a hurry, ain't gonna be fun t' do it havin' t' play skip hop jump," Kostas remarks. "Everyone else stay back. Reed, retreat back here as well and cover." She glances to Lleufer. She's the one with the EOD training, but is willing to cede the practice to him. "You got this one, Sargeant? Or you coverin' me."

Neko stays back and covers those examining the tile.

Brina crouches some, taking to a knee while lifting her rifle, just in case. Might be a bit overkill but she's going to be ready to defend now instead of hurrying to rush into a defensive position during a rush to protect the techs.

As instructed and with a nod, Reed backs up, all the while keeping his weapon ready. Once he is back enough, he shifts to the other side of the hallway, takes a knee, and goes to protect the Sargent.

<FS3> Brina rolls Alertness: Success.

Kapali eyes the technicians she's escorting, rating them on their athletic abilities - I.E. will they hop or fall and die - and buckles down the sigh before it can escape. Her luck, one of them will be clumsy or give the best impression of having clown-feet-itis. To be on the safe side she gestures them back another few paces.

<FS3> Neko rolls Alertness: Success.

Lleufer listens and then nods to Kostas, "I …" he in no way wants to blow his ass up after the shit he's been through for his head wound but, damned if he could live with himself if he sent another to do it in his place. "I'll do it, sir." Ynyr squats down and waits for the others to get well back, then he starts to take a look.

Neko's eyes continue to perform sweeps of the area behind them, and as much ahead as she can see. The flickering light earns an annoyed look. But otherwise she seems to find nothing of note to shout about.

Lleufer spends 1 luck points on In case of bad dice fu on demolitions roll..

<FS3> Lleufer rolls Demolitions: Good Success.

Now that she's got a better look at the tile, and what's underneath it, the EOD training kicks in. Kost stands back to allow Lleu his training, covering him, but motions the others back a little further still, out of her guesstimated blast radius range, just in case.

What Ynyr oh so very uncovers is infact an IED. The Sergeant deals with it with great care, slipping a sliver under the original tile to apply preasure and keeping it very even while he removes the tile to get to it. That is set aside, and then he's working carefully to disarm it. Lleu uses his own body to shield the others in case he fracks up because you never know. And then it's done and he breathes with relief, moving to stand and show it to them. Wow, he couldn't have done that more smoothly, thank goodness.

"IED. Reed, this takes us out, you got th' com," are Kostas softly spooken words.

The flickering light is a distraction, one Brina tries very hard to ignore but even with the effort put into not paying it any mind the relentless manner in which the light rapidly dims and brightens draws her eye to it. Gritting her teeth, the MP fights the urge to be lulled into inattentiveness by the damned thing and she forces her eyes front and center once more.

A nod is given to Kostas "Aye, Sir." Reed doesn't watch the work by the Sargent, instead he keeps the hallway covered. Knowing that those in the back have the rear covered. He waits, still on one knee, till told otherwise. He too cuts his eyes, momentarily, to the light, and if looks could kill.

Neko does not hesitate about getting back, out of the imaginary blast zone. Not that she has far to go. She hovers on the edge of the area Kostas indicated, until she's told to do otherwise.

Kapali casts a brief, baleful, look upward at the light fixture and the uneven illumination before gesturing for the Tech's she's babysitting to join her again in position with the rest of the team. So far, nothing has exploded and no one's been shot.

With the device cleared the path onwards seems clear. Through the door seems to be some kind of long gallery with banks of machinery along one side and an open area in the middle. It looks like he next door along opens into this area as well, but by the banks of machinery over the other side. About ten metres in though there's a set of metal stairs heading up to a gantry level above. There's a background whur of things working now, but still no sign of hostiles.

Lleufer hands the device back now it's disarmed for one of the engineers to take it and pack it away. They might find it amusing to study later. If this was real instead of an excerise anyway. Ynyr opens the door and they carefully start down the next hallway. He needs to double check their directions the techs gave them for which way to go, but he says very low, "Gonna have to check out each door, and get up there. Good place to shoot down." The sound of the machinery helps cover the low sound of his voice as he passes that back. Which direction are the techs looking most interested in here?

"Techs, we clearin' *before* ya go do your thing," Kostas says, once she returns to her position, and they're on the move on. "On my mark, or when it's secure, you c'n start workin'." She glances to Brina and Kapali. "O'Connell, Kapali, you're main cover for our tinks here. Rest of us clearin' and setting up th' hold when they notice we here." There doesn't seem to be a doubt in her mind it's coming soon.

Tech-1 (nicknamed 'Shep' for Kapali's sense of humor purposes) speaks up with: "Level up," in a mild tone of voice that isn't really at all sounding nervous or . . well anything other than mild. Tech-2 only nods just the once, confirming that Up the Stairs is the next part of this training exercise. Kapali carefully holds back a chuckle of amusement, of course it's up the stairs.

Reed quickly checks behind the machinery, what space there maybe then moves up the center of the open space that leads to the stairs, his weapon pointed up as he nears. "We need to go up," he says just as the Tech says pretty much the same thing. He looks to the Sargent and Kostas, waiting for directions.

<FS3> Lleufer rolls Alertness-3: Good Success.
<FS3> Neko rolls Alertness: Failure.

Yep, checking out the two rooms with machinery in it first, then Ynyr gives a nod at the verification of their instructions on direction. Up he thought, but needed to be sure they were clear down here first. With care, he starts going up the stairs presumably with Reed close behind to cover his ass. The Aerilon Sergeant is extra alert, keenly aware he needs to not screw things up on this training exercise or he might get his duty clearances revoked if anybody thinks he's not up to snuff due to his recent medical trauma.

Up and up, eyes peeled as he ascends slowly, rifle held up and ready to pan and cover anything that might move or start shooting up top.

"When ya find a place you like for coverin', Soun, take it," Kostas remarks quietly to the heavy weapons specialist, as they start to enter the room. "We'll have incomings I bet, once the shutdown begins, if they ain't here already." That said, she'll continue to stay mostly in the rear, covering the doorway, though will move with the unit as people start to make their way up.

<FS3> Brina rolls Alertness: Good Success.

"I'm good, boss!" Neko pipes to Kostas, falling alongside the ensign as she covers the general rear area. She must not see anything particularly troubling or interesting about it, as she just continues on, gun at the ready but not pointed at anything in particular.

<FS3> Lleufer rolls Reaction: Success.

As the techs settle out of the way to wait for the all clear to proceed there's a faint hissing sound for a second in the machinery and then a shower of sparks erupt from one unit before it then falls dead and silent.

There is movement from Brina who is coming up to cover the very same people Kostas told her to cover but something draws her up short. Turning back, she tilts her head, trying to catch a sound. "There's a whurring…" Instead of finishing the sentence verbally she points, not moving away from the others. This qualitifes as a 'what the frak moment', yes?

The Sergeant going up the stairs freezes even before the snap, crackle and pop of machinery. Lleu puts out a hand to stay anyone moving up behind him and then he points out a motion sensor he almost tripped himself, but didn't. Though the sounds of machinery dying catches his attention for a heart beat, Ynyr squats down to see if he can deal with the sensor. He frowns, "Motion sensor. Hard to deal with it .. doesn't seem to have explosives attached to it but it's gonna alert somebody." He looks back to Kostas.

<FS3> Kapali rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Kostas rolls Alertness: Success.
<FS3> Reed rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Brina rolls Alertness: Good Success.
<FS3> Neko rolls Alertness: Good Success.

Seeing the Tech's still in one piece, intact non bleeding pieces that is, Kapali shifts focus - however briefly - on the piece of machinery from which sparks shower. She edges closer, with care, one foot lightly placed upon the floor after the other, taking her time to ease forward and quietly at the same time until she is close enough to lean forward. She studies the machinery, notes the state of apparent disrepair and visible lack of repair calls, before a fine gleam of amusement forms on her face, a smile briefly appearing before she eases back. Just as quiet. Just as calm. Babysitting, check.

Kostas glances towards the Engineer. "Think you c'n disable 'r source the sensor, Kapali?" she asks quietly—though her gaze moves rather quickly towards the entrance and the door, ready to cover. "Need t' get our techs workin' ASAP."

When the machinery failed, Reed turned and studied it a moment "That one is a goner," he says before turning back to the stairs. He continues to cover the Sargent as he goes on to the top and finds the sensor.

"There's thumping coming up. Sounds like someone's laying it on heavy while walking towards us. That whurring's getting more noticeable, too." Brina hurries towards the techs now but then turns back towards the direction the noises she just mentioned are coming from, rifle held at the ready, sights looked down, safety thumbed off.

Kapali is silent for a moment, considering, that's the expression on her face, considering. She then replies: "With the aid of the Sergeant, yes sir," said with a nod before looking back at the technician's she's escorting. "Who's on guard duty while I'm up, Sir?"

Neko turns suddenly, when Brina mentions thumping. It seems to trigger her senses. "Yeah…I hear it, too. It's getting closer. From that-a-way." She points her rifle back toward the way they came.

Lleufer decides, "Frak the sensor then. They're coming. Techs! Up you go, come on! Double time it!" Drill Sergeant mode is kicking in. "Forget it, Kapali. We don't have time now." One last quick look to see if Kostas is going to counter order and if not, Ynyr's going on up the rest of the way, rifle ready. Does she check him?

Anyone looking back towards the door, or more specifically under it, will see the faint hints of red light scanning back and forth, getting steadily closer and closer.

"Kostas! Take that IED and set it up to blow them when the come up behind us!" You know, if she thinks that's a good idea? Buy'm a little time maybe.

"Canners," Reed says as he spots the light on the other side of the door. He backs up, looking for a place to take cover and still fire at anything that might come through the door. "Take cover, stop them from coming in." He says, settling behind a bit of machinery.

<FS3> Amos rolls Alertness: Great Success.
<FS3> Amos rolls Alertness: Great Success.

Kostas has had her eyes on the door they came in almost the whole time, having been covering from the rear. "Incoming," she shouts, glancing once to Soun, who's been covering as well most of the time. She raises her rifle. "Protect the techs, set up as best you can! Soon as we're done, give a shout." She too is looking for cover.

"Aye sir," unnecessary reply from Kapali but she has the Tech's moving forward again, though once they reach the stairs she slides past and takes the stairs first, rifle aimed forward and protecting the technician's as she leads/escorts them up the stairs. Trying to keep an eye out for anything and everything while protecting them. Babysitting, still.

As the echos of Kostas' shout die away, there's a definite increase in the pace of the footfall and a moment or two later a figure bursts through the door, followed quickly by two others. As it turns out, they're marines with LMGs and red filtered torches strapped to the side of their helmets, but then using actual centurions in training might be a little dangerous. Needless to say, they come in firing.

Ynyr gets to the top of the stairs, does a quick looksee that nothing is up there that'll blow his ass up from behind (Brina) and then Lleu's hitting the floor on one side to keep it clear for the others to get up. 200+ lbs of Marine plus 100 lbs of gear to go thunk. Rifle up, the Sergeant sights in as Kapali and the two techs run up and get out of the way of his line of fire.

Reed also falls to the floor, his rifle trained on the first 'canner' that comes through the door. "Rock and roll," he says "Get those techs working," right before he pulls the trigger on his rifle. "

Leading the way up, Kapali leaps past Ynyr to land lightly, as lightly as anyone does that is, and drags tech-1 and Tech-2 past the guard dog (Ynyr) into the open area beyond. "Clock's ticking, gents," is said as she takes up a position beside Ynyr on the floor, rifle ready. No targeting marines in their team, of course, only the ones not on their side of the 'board'

The sound of gunfire erupts with in the room, though the sights, sounds and smells are nothing new, save for the use of rubber bullets. Reed doesn't flinch, even thumbs his selector switch to full as he quickly gets to his feet, moving to the edge to fire on the remaining 'target'.

The air is quickly filled with rubber flying back and forth, although it seems that the makeshift centurions get the worse end of it, with two of them having the good grace to drop out of things and down to the floor. There's still one on his feet though and he seems determined to keep firing. Up above there's a curse from one of the techs as he takes a bullet but it's not yet enough to take him down as he and his companion make it to the cover of teh upper level before glancing between Kostas, Lleufer and Kapali to see if their instructions are to stay under cover, or risk a run to the as of yet uncleared control room.

A soft, marginally-pained yelp sounds from Brina who gets winged in the hand, the fake ammo glancing off in a manner that hurts like a mofo. "Godsdamnit," she hisses before she realizes that the target she shot at is no longer on its feet. sighing in relief, she aims, this time for the sole Cent.

There's a high-pitched "Frak!" from Neko as she falls back, cradling her neck. Even with the body armor, that one stings. She has to regroup a bit, and scramble back on her feet. Trying to angle herself so her neck is a bit less exposed.

Crap. She doesn't say THAT either but it's on her expression as she waits for the initial round of incoming and outbound bullets to zip and snarl around. Rubber bullets or not, still playing by the live fire rules. Hearing one of her charges curse has Kapali easing back from the doorway and making her way back to the tech's and then easing forward - swiftly - toward the as-yet un-cleared control room. "Sir," she speaks in a low voice into her comm, "tech's need to advance forward. Permission to recon, clear if possible and advance?"

Some people are not remembering Kostas's order to keep to short bursts, are they? Ynyr does so, aware they need to buy the techs /time/ and that means they might be at this a while eating up ammo. He does glance behind him and sees one of the techs were hit, and them hesitating. Lleu rolls away, "Keep the top of the stairs, Kap. I'll check the control room for our boys." The MP Sergeant gets to his feet and bent over low, he runs back to the techs and then moves past, rifle ready, as he goes to make sure they can get where they need to go.

"Need t' move to th' objective, folks," Kostas shouts, probably more because her ears are ringing and probably so are other people's rather than a proximity thing. "Ynyr, O'Connell, Kapali—move with th' techs t' get the job done. Rest of us will hold here. Soon's they workin' an' safe, or we call for help, try t' rejoin us when y' can!" Her rifle's still aimed, and she fires again at the next thing in her sights.

As soon as the firing stops, reed falls to a knee and calls out "Reloading," as he drops a mag and pulls a fresh one from one of the pouches on his vest. He pays no attention to the 'canner', it's down. He just readies himself for the next target that may come through the door.

"Aye -" is as far as Kapali gets when Ynyr speaks first then the Ensign speaks, call it the power of positive thinking or maybe just momentum but she moves aside for the Sergeant since he's taking point and splits her attention between the Technicians and the 'rest of the world' behind them. Another snarl of sound of rubber bullets sliding through the air like bacon through a hound. The call of 'Reloading' has her trying to twin herself to split and guard more than one door at a time.

That poor marine is likely to have a fair spread of bruises come the morning but he valiently stands his ground and plays the part as long as he can.Eventually though, he's taken all he can and drops to the floor to join his fellows. Said fellows however, each raise an empty hand and roll back through the door and out of sight, presumably to reset for another wave at some later point.

As for the tech's they're sticking with Lleu and Kapali for now.

<FS3> Lleufer rolls Alertness: Success.

Kostas doesn't blink as rubber bullets fly and ping off the metal in the room. As Reed moves to reload, she moves to cover him, eyes on the door to prepare to fire for what comes through it next. She winces as Neko goes down, but then nods. "I'll auto," she tells Reed quietly, "go for suppress if we get more before you loaded again. That happens, toss a stun if we need to t' slow 'em down with the two of us. Yeah?"
From afar, Reed would have made the centurions to have a -1 on the attack since they are shooting up on a catwalk.
You paged Reed with 'and they had a even chance of hitting the metal grating as they did of having the bullets pass through?'

"FRAK!" Neko does more high-volume swearing as she takes another rubber round. This one in the gut. It makes her fall back again. That probably is going to bruise through the armor. "Uh…am I dead?" It suddenly occurs to her that, for the purposes of the exercise, she should be. "Frakit. I think I'm dead."
<Marines> Kapali says, "Alas, poor Yorik (Neko) we knew her well."

Lleufer goes and finds the door they need, helpfully marked -CONTROL ROOM- right there on the hatch like it should be. Good door, except that when Ynyr tries to open it, it won't budge. He throws his shoulder into it and tries to heave but it's a no go. He looks back to the techs, "Either of you good with locks or am I going to have to blow this frakker to get you boys in?" Lleu reaches for a grenade and frowns, not the best choice at all. He'd need to set a proper shaped charge and that'd take a minute.
You paged Reed with 'OK it sucks when no one gets Shakespere (quasi Shakespere) quotes.'

It is a focused effort but that last Cent-wannabe is out of the fight and Brina puts the safety back on. "Go, go go," she yells out while making sure everyone else is able to get moving. "Soun is down!" Neko gets her to cough back some laughter, the heavy weapons Marine funny, intentionally or otherwise. Moving so she can face back while regrouping, she tries to make sure nothing else will be coming up on them.

"Roger that, Sir," Reed says grinning. Ahh, what's not to love getting to shoot, take down canners, even if they aren't really canners. He shakes his head at Neko "A brave Marine. I shall have a drink in her honor." as the clip is readied with one hand, the weapon cradled in the crook of his arm, a stun grenade is taken off his armor and laid where he plans to go prone once the reload is done. "If there is no other way in, and if there are none in the control room, they will have to get past us to get in."

The unhurt tech shakes his head at the question about his lock picking skills, then offers, "there's delcate equipment in there though Sarge, reckon you want to be using something more careful than that. Wouldn't want to damage things we need still working."

"Lets not be blowing up anything the technicians might have need of, Sarge," Kapali seconds this motion with, glancing back at the door then forward again. "That might qualify as a automatic fail for passing grade," a quick flash of a grin paired with her last remark while still keeping all that attention focused on the job.

Lleufer isn't blowing anything yet. He's checking out the door as the techs answer him, feeling it, "Feels light. Don't think this glass is ship grade, nor the lock mechanism.." He motions both techs, "Get back incase of ricochet." He's going to shoot the mechanism to blow it open and then give it a good hard kick - it'll be fast!

From the other door, the one that would have been the forth on the right as they came down the corridor, spils forth another squad of marines with red torches. The whuring noises they seem to be making themselves for the benefit of the 3rd batallion guys, or maybe just for their own amusement, it's hard to tell. Still, it's another trio of LMGs being brought to bare and another hail of rubber bullets to survive.

Neko plays 'dead.' Eyes wide open, tongue lulling out slightly. It's somewhat over-dramatic.

Brina falls back one more time, this time to get Neko. "We don't leave anyone behind, not even in pretendy time training missions. Lay there and I'll drag you." Neko won't have long to lay in one spot as Brie is quick to make good on what she just said and attempts to pull her along.

Lleufer's rifle discharges and then he kicks the door open. Tada! Look mom, I did it! Ynyr is busy doing that so he doesn't see the new 'Centurions' come barreling out up here, a few doors further down. There hasn't been time to check that far. "Go, go!" Lleu orders the techs which should suit them just fine as it'll get them some cover once they are through the door. Ynyr turns and sees the fake Cents coming but he'll have to wait for the techs to get in there before he might step in and try to use the door for cover himself!

Kapali is with the tech's every step of the way, sweeping the new room for all manner of inventive dangers and hazards including (but not limited to) trip wires, snake lined pits, exploding potted plants or really bad music bombardments.

His weapon reloaded, Reed looks over to Kostas, gives a grin and picks up the flash/bang he had set before him. "This should get their attention when they come." The pin is pulled and the spoon held. "Flash/bang," he announces to the Marines. When, not if, the canners come in he will toss it down at them and cover his eyes.

"Aww, thanks, sweetie." Neko un-deads briefly to smile up at Brina. She's not easy to drag. She's a big girl in full body armor. But she's probably not too difficult to push out of the way. She'll even scoot a little, though that's technically not good dead person behavior. She is, at least, at a good angle well below the flying rubber bullets now.

In the chaos and confusion of the latest arrives, the sole remaining body from the previous encounter also rolls away and amkes off ready to be send back in later if required. The three new guys, coming in from the other door on the ground level lay down a lot of rubber but seemingly can't find their targets and very little seems to hit the colonals.

The techs, now the door to the control room is open, scamper inside and sit themselves down in a corner. Each pulls a stopwatch out from under their armor and sets it going before reaching into a pocket of their vests and pulling out snack bars. "We'll let you know when we're done," they offer to Kapali.

"Reed, I'm reloading after this next round," Kostas calls out, as she unloads a volley of supressing fire as he throws the grenade, but then she's back to a burst and all business."

In Brina's mind it's like a sci-fi movie, complete with little streaks of bright red laser fire and the accompanying 'pew pew' sound effects to go with the firing of weapons, all of which miss her and Neko in some kind of wonderfully fortunate state of affairs. In reality, however, it's not 'pew pew

Kapali gives a snicker of amusement. "You could at least have brought a deck," she remarks while continuing to eye the room. She does not, however, attempt to protect them from those self administered snack bars.

"Roger that, Sir, let me know when and I'll lay down suppressing fire." He gets ready, peering over the edge at one of the instructors. A grin, he aims and squeezes off a three round burst.

In Brina's mind it's like a sci-fi movie, complete with little streaks of bright red laser fire and the accompanying 'pew pew' sound effects to go with the firing of weapons, all of which miss her and Neko in some kind of wonderfully fortunate state of affairs. In reality, however, it's not 'pew pew' but 'bang bang' and two of those rounds hit her with the dull thud of rubber impacting against body parts. "Oh… frak! That fraking stings," she announces, as if people here don't know that rubber bullets hurt like hell. "C'mon, Neko… gods, you're heavy!" Drag, drag, unf. Shit. Can this go any slower?

Ynyr glances in real fast like and does a double take at the two 'techs' eating candy bars. An exercise can get pretty fratzed and life like and he almost starts to chew their asses OUT. Lleu catches himself just as he was ducking in the door and remembers, it's just an exercise. He laughs, then turns his back on them and leans his shoulder against the door to take a bead on the next fake canner's red light special as it appears.

"I'm tall and muscular. That's different from heavy." Neko feels the need to correct Brina on this point, despite her faux-corpse status. "Besides, this armor adds, like, fifty pounds. Easy."

"Reload!" Kostas calls out, as per protocol. Ducking down—well, more like squatting down since there's no cover really, to do so. Over the comm she voices, "ETA on when our techies got this baby down?" as she's reloading.

"Yeah? Well, before you ask, yes, it…" 'it' being the armor, "… does make your ass look big." A pause is made to scout out a safe place for them to hole up but with the 'enemy' coming in from two different ways it's not going to be a walk in the park. "Stairs." And it's another game of Tug-The-Marine, Brina trying to get going so Neko can be hidden (she hopes) and she can return to shooting.

THe air really is thick with rubber now, but not many hits. Maybe the bullets are all just bouncing off each other or something. One of the pseudo-centurions drops out after a gut shot though, just intime for three more to appear through the first door once more. Looks like those 1st Batallion boys are working hard to keep the presure up. THe techs, they just contimue to much aay, occasionally checking their stop watches.

Kapali tosses a glance over her shoulder and back, "they're about half way through their snack bar, Sir, but they've got a stop watch so the progress of snack consumption may not be indicative of their ETA. I will advise as soon as they're done, Sir."

"Doesn't exactly do wonders for your figure either, O'Connell," Neko snarks back to Brina, at the comment about her armor, and her ass. Though, as she's stashed somewhere (hopefully) out of the way, she does add a genuine, "Thanks for not leaving me behind!"

"Got ya covered, Sir." Reed says as he is about to bring his rifle up "Frak, three more," there is a split second before he shakes his head "Frag out," he calls. His rifle is forgotten for the frag grenade he has. The toss will be to try to make it end up in the center, the open area, so as to keep it away from the equipment.

This being said, and no snake pits arriving, no music bombardment, bad foliage or worse to come waltzing in, Kapali eases forward and takes up position on the other side of the busted door frame to mirror Ynyr's position. A quick scan/sweep of the stairs, notes the arrival of three mores to bring the party count up to a nifty four and simply picks one to fire at. After all, snack time should not be interrupted by rubber bullets bouncing at them.

Brina smiles and holds out her fist once Neko's stowed away, offering a fist bump. "Yeah, well. You owe me a pretend one for saving you, huh?" Soun is given a wink before she's back around whatever is being used for 'corpse' cover, her rifle readied one more time. "Alright, you tin can mother frakers. Time to die!"

Using the door as part cover, Lleufer drops his rifle to hang by it's strap and pulls one of his fake grenades, "FIRE IN THE HOLE!" he shouts to warn his fellows. And then just as the new fake Centurions are trying to get to the door and through it, Ynyr tosses his fake frag!

With both their 'protectors' down, the two techs pause briefly in their munching before glancing once more to their stopwatches and shrugging to each other. One of them pauses his counter and crawls forward to drag lleufer a little way into the room and make an attempt at first aid on the sergeant.

Of the two remaining centurions, one makes a push for the stairs while the other turns up point their LMG up in the direction the grenades come from.

Two more standing, Reed reaches for his other grenade, blast, only had the two, so the rifle is swung up with an easy motion. He quickly takes aim at one of the standing Centurions. They must be stopped! "What happens behind him is ignored. The threat is before him. If they aren't stopped, the mission is a failure. Ain't gonna happen on his watch.

"Oh for fuck's sake, SHIT!" is Kostas' comment as she is zinged twice, and it actually frakkin' hurts this time. She finishes her reloading with her teeth clenched, popping up to fire at the first target that pops into her fight. "Status?" she barks into her com, hearing quite a few bullets zinging overhead too.

ZOINK! Mother frak, that hurt! Almost like getting shot for real, but thankfully not. Ynyr is punched back with the round hitting him in the gut and remembers this is an exercise, so he drops to his knees and fake collapses. His rifle clatters when his body hits the floor and then one of the techs is trying to drag him back from the door, "Hey, got another candy bar?"

Kapali tries REALLY hard to not snicker as Ynyr is dragged out of the way like.. well . . a sack of sand. She nods at the tech that moves forward to try to help with some administered first aid and narrows her eyes at the tech, decisions. Tell the tech to go back to work thereby NOT doubling the remaining time or letting Ynyr stay down for the count. "Please return to your task," she says, tapping the tech on the shoulder and eyeing Ynyr to make sure he isn't bleeding out of his ears or something and goes back to a position of defending the tech's.

"I think Hera let me suckle on her tit or something cuz I got all kinds of good luck and shit and am still upright, sir," O'Connell announces lewdly. There's still a couple baddies that need removed, however, and Brina is all too happy to fire again.

The tech with Lleu glances over to Kapali as she issues instructions the looks back down to Lleu, "sorry mate, work to do. If it's any consoulation you make a fine corpse though." THat said he slips back to where his fellow remains and restarts his stopwatch again.

<COMBAT> Brina's weapon clicks empty.

With the last remaining 'centurion' from the far side still on his feet, there's only two new arrivals through the door this time. Presumably his mates who've had time for a quick drink and a reload before coming back in. In better news though, as the tech who didn't go help Lleu finsihes his snackbar he calls over to Kapali, "nearly there. 'nother minute, maybe two."

Kapali angles her head slightly to the side to speak into her comm, "Sir, they say maybe another minute or two," which means marine-math of approximately four.

Brina calls out, "Reload," and then moves, pressing herself against the nearest wall to present the smallest target to hit.

"Good to go, Frak!" Reed says in the com as he shakes his left hand after getting a zinger on it. he falls to take cover on the platform, still keeping his weapon on the attackers. He remains targeted on the one canner "Hang in there, Sir. We got this." Knowning that by the time he got to her the fight may well be over. So he focuses his attention on his target, another burst is let fly.

"How many grenades you got, Reed?" is Kostas' shout to him. "O'Connell?" There's a pause as she sets up for suppression as even more come their way. "After this round, going for one of mine." She hears Kapali, and then responds. "Roger. We're hot, Kapali, but'll do th' best we can. If we go down, get ready t' take it out." While Brina's reloading, Kostas pops for what she hopes is both suppression AND hits.

"I'm out, Sir," Reed calls back to Kostas. Grumply too.

"I'm not," Kapali volunteers from where she's crouched. "Of grenades, I mean," she clarifies, tossing another glance over her shoulder at the tech's, not at all like she isn't counting to see the seconds pass. Not at all.

<COMBAT> Reed has been KO'd!
<COMBAT> Reed spends a luck point to keep fighting!

Another hail of gunfire and it's a fair exchange, one marine drops, one centurion. Mor eimportantly though, up in the control room, there's a brief conflab and some comparing of stopwatches, and then the taller of the two techs announces to Kapali, "we're done." Tucking the watches away then glances down to the 'corpse' of lleufer. Need us to drag him along to?"

Another loud "Frak," as Reed takes a shot to the leg. It of course hurts like the blazes and then goes all tingly. He remains on his target, anger now filling his features as he gets to a knee, willing to expose himself to stop the attackers.

Kapali unhooks one of the grenades she's carrying, leans to the side of the door frame, "Frag out," and does her best curve-ball pitch to get the grenade to land in the right direction. Then.. well then.. "Lets not drag him down into the line of fire just yet, much as he'd make a good shield," she replies to the technicians. Again into the comm, "Sir, the tech's are done up here, standing by but ready to move."

Kostas shoulders her rifle for a moment, unclipping a grenade and tossing it at the nearest target. "As soon as they're down, we moving!" she yells out, though it's a courtesy, as she knows her Marines are thinking that already.

As the longest running centurion finally goes down he does at least have the decency to do it dramaticaaly. It's a grenade that does for him in the end and so he throws himself backwards nad lies twitching for a moment. The other two keep coming though.

Up in the control room, having stuck their snackbar wrappers back into their vests, one of the tech's helpfully notes, pointing across to Lleu, "want me to grab his rifle and have a go too? We covered it at basic I seem to recall."

A grunt as Reed takes yet another round to his left arm. A roll of his shoulder to try and keep it working, they maybe rubber bullets but they still hurt! He rocks back slightly, that blasted LMG, that is what it is. Again he aims, not going to let the 'canner' get the better of him or go down fighting. He has to shake his hand a bit to try to get it to hold his rifle steady. Once set he again squeezes off another three round burst..

One of the bullets fired catche Kostas right in the chest, propelling her backwards with a loud grunt and a most ungraceful three point landing. "Mission achieved, motherfrakkers! Now let's blow a hole and get the frak outta here, marines!" She sounds a little wheezy, as she unclips her final grenade and prepares to launch. "'R take out as many with us as we can. Mind the controls though, so th' cleanup crew got somethin' t' do after they step over our bodies." Trench humor, maybe.

Kapali fixes a look at the tech that suggested the use of Ynyr's rifle, breathes a quiet - very quiet - chuckle of amusement. "You point the business end of the boom stick at the bad guys and try not to kill the guys wearing your team colors, you mean?" dry VERY VERY dry humor here but she nods and crosses over to help drag Ynyr's unconscious body upward. "Away, gentlemen, let us be," and (hopefully) with Tech-1's assistance she plans to proceed to walk Ynyr with them out of the room.

"Like that you mean," the Tech replies to Kapali, grinning a little as he does so. It can be so terribly satisfying to shoot your mates after all. THe other tech does as indicated and helps lug Lleufer back towards the steps down.

The final remaining centurion finds hismelf momentarilly unsure of who exactly to fire at, given his wide choice of targets, then deicdes to just keep shooting Kapali anyway.

As another one of the Centurions goes down Reed lets out with a "Oooha" and turns his weapon on the one remaining "Pour it on him Marines!" He doesn't hesitate at all, switching to full auto, a last ditch effort it would seem.

"CMC, don't gotta be pretty but it gets th' job done," Kostas says, half in humor but with no little grimness, as she brings her rifle back to bear and prepares to fire. "Guess I gonna turn in my fuckin' tiara to th' old man after this." There's a flash of a grin, and then a flare from her rifle as she unleashes it.

"Yeah, something like that," Kapali replies and, eyes narrowed, "you missed a few spots though. Might want to spend some extra time at the range," cheeky grin paired with this remark as she elbow-jabs Ynyr in the side and continues to keep hauling him forward.

With the final centurion down, the tech carrying Lleufer takes the man's weight as Kapali goes down, leaving his fellow to grap the corporal. "On our way," one of them calls to Kostas, then looks across to Reed and nodding towards the stairs, "after you mate."

Reed stands, dirty (how one can get so dirty in a killhouse) letting his rifle hang by the strap. He works his left arm and fingers, trying to get some feeling back "Mission accomplished," he mutters "What say we get our troops and get out of here, Sir?" He smiles to Kostas.

Kostas shakes her head slightly, and moves to grab the fallen Brina. Lucky Reed is going to have to get the larger Neko. "Yep. Time t' drag our asses outta here, I think," she winks.

With the assistance of the tech, Kapali joins the rest of the team that's exiting the building.
