BC-09 HK-0037 steps forward as Rem enters the lift. "Units designated 'crewmember' your attention!" The droid raises its right arm and discharges his heavy blaster just as Rem begins asking everyone to move back. (attack:14) A shower of sparks and light rains down from the ceiling. (damage:8 radiant) The droids other arm shoots out and grabs the lift door preventing it from closing. "Please step out of the lift now" the droids metallic voice keens loudly in its grating-metal-dialup-modem sort of way. "These units bearing 'crewmember' designations have already exposed themselves to facility surveillance. As this unit has previously stated, utilizing the lift to change levels will be a tactical mistake, thus violating one of this unit's primary objectives." The droid lowers the top segment of its arm while keeping the lower segment with the heavy blaster mounted to it still raised in a somewhat threatening gesture. "Units bearing 'crewmember' designations will exit the lift and proceed to the stairs located next to the lift bank."
Hearing the blaster fire, Ryyhwacca looks at the direction of the team, then growls in disgust, for any advantage they could have achieve by their stun at climbing towards de window is now, most probably, lost. He then returns to the first steps of the stair and tries to listen or see if anyone uses the stairs to reach them.
Tsu! You are going to get us dead, but really dead with this toys of your... That was what passed in Rem's mind during the instants that BC shot at the camera and "politely" asked him to leave the lift, Rem presses the lower button and says, moving not threateningly out of the lift: BC, I am sorry if my actions are against your parameters, might they be what ever they are, I just wanted to see if the lift would stop before reaching it's destination so we could try to guesstimate where the Mercs. could be. Didn't want to push the wrong buttons here...Tsu, can you explain things to BC... Please!
Klulvae flashes around at the blaster fire, suspecting an unseen foe that BC is engaged with. Almost disappointed to see no enemy, he sighs. "Yeah, sure, Echo. We're taking the stairs. That lift has probably alerted whoever is down there to our presence anyway." What that said, the party descends down the stairs. Approaching the bottom of the stairs, the party comes across a glass door, where the keypad has been blasted, and the glass door pushed to the side. Advancing through it, Klulvae stops the group with a hand signal. The "foyer" area has the stairs and elevator connected to each other in an opening, which continues through a corridor on the right side. Down the corridor, Klulvae hears voices, both robotic and sentient, though the topic of conversation isn't able to be discerned.
Peering around the corner, three Droids are lined up across the 15 ft. wide corridor, backs turned to them. The left side has two large panels of glass, revealing a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains far off in the distance. The right side seems to have two rooms, with voices coming from both. Klulvae grins, turning back to the party and giving them such information. Whispering, he adds, "This might be my favorite part of the day, gentlemen." He gleefully grabs an ion grenade from the a pouch on his side, and flips a switch, causing a faint beeping to issue forth. He tosses the grenade down the corridor, as you hear the grenade tap against the floor before rolling towards droids. You hear the indiscriminate chatter of surprise by the droids before an explosion. Klulvae smiles with saberstaff alight as he charges around the corner, disappearing from view. Turning the corner, you see the three droids as scrap, scattered throughout the corridor.
BC-09 HK-0037 proceeds down the corridor. Its gone 10 feet when it passes a small jutting wall and notices a Falleen 15 feet away to its left. The droid immediately turns on it's heel, putting it's raised shield between the hostile Falleen and itself. It raises it's right arm which has a heavy blaster mounted into it and fires. (attack:20)
Blaster fire rips through the air. (damage:7 radiant) A scorch mark is left splashed across the breast plate of the Fallen's armor as the blue skinned alien staggers to maintain his balance.
Seeing how Kluvae and BC handled the droids that gave Rem reason to smile. Moving to get a view of the first room, Rem sees one of the mercs. and he doesn't hold back, shooting the enemy right in his chest.
The party moves so swiftly, they give no time for the enemy to react, as they quickly decimate their ranks. Klulvae continues dashed towards the other room. Using staccato movements, he jabs at one of the mercenaries, killing him, and twirls around to face the final one from this party.
As the group moved forward Tsussel gripped his blaster. "Alright! If at first you don't succeed. You always try again!" With a quick movement the Jawa made his way out behind the corner and took aim. But something strange happened. As he was taking aim with his blaster a small spider had appeared in front of his scope.
Now usually Tsussel would never be a fair of spiders, but in the heat of battle that last thing he expected to see in his scopes was a giant spider! With a shout he fired, completely missing his target!
The battle droid stalks towards the door way of the second room. Still facing west, it reaches the doorway and sidesteps right slipping just inside the room while keeping the energy shield between itself and the remaining Falleen combatant. BC-09 raises the heavy blaster mounted to it's right forearm and fires. (attack:5) The blue skinned alien recoils to the left, the blaster bolt sears through the air where the Falleen's body was only an instant before.
The new ion blaster pistol wasn't working too well for Aevar. His first shot [in the surprise round] the trigger had jammed, so it didn't fire until moments after he had attempted to fire, when the target had moved. His second shot manages to hit the target, but once again, the delay caused by the trigger causes problems [minimum damage, yay!].
Seeing that the group is taking care of this group of mecs. efficiently, Rem just moves out of the room in the direction of the next, standing at the door where he can see the target, it is not a clear shot (target has cover), but he fire's his blaster. If you risk enough you get the best rewards!Rem says when he sees that his shot getting a direct hit Fallen's chest, burning throw his armor and making him yell and fall Rem could not get that silly smile out of his face, walking up to the corpses he prepares to search for, well, anything he can carries!
(Baster ranged attack 1d20+5 = 25 to hit (Critical), 2d8+3 = 12 radiant damage)
Hearing that there are still blaster fire coming from the other room, Ryyhwacca growls in defiance and move towards it. If there is still an enemy standing when he rushes into the room, he will attack it with his Ryyk swords, making a circular movement while he jumps towards the enemy, growling while doing it.
Son Kol and BC09-HK0037 work together to access the facilities network through the data terminal in the first room. The two are silent as they work. the only sounds are those made by Son as he types and clicks and by the servos that turn the rotors of the data port to which BC's SCOMP link is jacked in. After several moments BC09's sharp metallic voice breaks the silence "Tactical analysis complete. This unit has concluded the maimed organics on the level we breached, were dismembered to gain administrator access to this instillation's network and systems." The droids head pivots toward Son. "'crewmember' Son Kol, one of this unit's mission parameters as given by Tsussel Isil included orders to gain access and control of this facilities security systems. It appears that security access is physically restricted to terminals located in the security office on the bottommost level of this facility. However without proper biometric keys these systems cannot be accessed with sufficient privileges to gain control of them. We must coordinate our efforts to acquire the necessary biometric keys and then gain access to the security office." The droid stands there waiting, it's head still turned at the unnatural angle required to face Son and it's left arm positioned oddly so that the extended SCOMP link remains seated into the terminal.
While Rem is searching the bodies for, information, he turns to Son and BC and asks: Son, BC, you guys see any recent entries in files or anything that could tell us anything? Whoever set up the distress call might have entered some kind of information or something. Check recent reports and patients logs, if it was a doctor he/she would try to hide that kind of information in a patient log. I would.
Whatever Echo said on Klulvae was completely lost on him, but he wasn't about to tell anyone that. Seeing the party work on the computers bores him. Pacing around uncomfortably, he decides, "I'm going to go scout out up ahead, see if we have another "welcoming" party in store for us. You guys keep on doing your fancy things. I'll hit you over the radio if I find anything important." His sharp turn causes his cloak to flare up as he left the room and stealthily moved down the corridor. Peering around the corner, he turned, and disappeared from sight. I really do look fabulous in this.
While Ryyhwacca is clenanig his swords, he sees that Echo is leaving for a little scouting he decided to cover him. He follows Echo, loading his bowcaster, and waits for him in the middle of the stairs.
"Rwwwooagh Wrof Wrof Graugh" he says to Echo before he dissapears from sight
[If you know Shryywook he says " Do not worry. I will be here in case of any problem arises" ]
Son Blinked from behind his goggles snapping out of the fugue state he always slipped into while splicing, and looked to BC. "Yeah but how do we get those Biometri-" Son paused thinking back to the Maimed bodies they found earlier, "Oh right." Anyone familiar with Kel Dor would see Son's face flush a color indicating quesiness. He reached to pull out his vibrodagger and handed it to B, "If you don't mind I think I may let you handle that part."
Hegoes to try and commit what he can of the map to memory, then attempts to identify the identity and positions of personell with security clearance. "Let's see if we can find where these people were."
Investigation to find Personell with Security clearance = (10)+1 = 11

Tsussel puts the butt of his rifle to the ground and rests his arms on the blaster and leans to and fro waiting for the computer stuff to get done. Seeing the Jedi walk off all dashing with his cloak swerlling around him made Tsu think of Jedi from stories he heard. Maybe he should go with him, but then he realizes that Son was handing BC a vibrodagger. He also saw Ryyhwacca follow Klulvae out. Better to let the Wookie protect the Jedi anyways. "Hey! I'll go with you BC. That way we can also pick some datacards up." Hopefully with some credits. With that he kicked up his blaster and was ready to move out!

It is taking to long already (Rem says, his agitated hands going to his blaster back and forth) We should keep going, we have no access to critical systems here, the mercs. did a good job taking the "keys" with them and the more we wait here the more time they will have to entrench themselves making it hard for us to deal with them as easily as we did with this bunch.
As soon as Kluv and Ryy come back I vote we go to the next level of this place and start getting stuff done.
BC-9 HK-0037 travels back up the stairs to where the corpses are and examines the bodies, specifically focusing on the wounded areas by a lightsaber. He notes that the temperature of the wounded areas is 121 degrees Fahrenheit, while the remaining portions of the corpse have begun to cool, at 94 degrees Fahrenheit.
By the time BC-9 HK-0037 returns from his excursion upstairs, Klulvae and Ryywhaaca have returned from their scouting expedition, and seem to be having an argument of sorts. "Yes, I told you drop him down gently, not greatly! Now our only lead for information is through a busted window and smashed against the rocks below..." Seeing the curious looks, Klulvae explains, "We snuck up on a merc and surprised him. Getting him to talk was easy. We know there are two more hostile groups located in the building. One is doing a search through the upper levels, while the remaining larger force is at a standoff with the remaining survivors who have barricaded a blaster door which leads down below. I thought maybe the rest of you would want to question him, but fur-brains here threw him out the window!"
OOC: Feel free to embellish and add anything you want to that Frandal! I got the right thread this time hahaha.
