As a silent response to John, W3RM equipped both Raptors and advanced slowly, ready to let loose with a barrage of bright blue bullets. Having two guns instead of one meant he could target many more enemies, very quickly, practically waving the stream of bullets over them on both sides.

Maarucye made it to the edge of the grove and put his collapsed rifle back on his leg. A sniper rifle wouldn't do in medium-long range combat; it was only good for long-long range combat. He raised his left arm, readying his plasma pulser.

The way to the compound was easy. Relative to the groves murken roots and waist high water the plain was smooth and the hill's mud took a weak grip on the mercenaries feet.
The compound rose above them behind the shell of bricks. The complex that rose behind the old looking stone buildings was high-tech modern, with dark-grey metal walls that shimmered slightly.
Three of the Sons of Liberty soldiers sat in their ponchos under a retracktable roof and played with cards, shielded from the rain. The smallest one had its back towards the opening of the courtyard. The other two, larger, foul reptiles had all their attention towards the deck of cards, while still having a grip around their brutish rifles. They had yet to see the mercenaries, but one of them smelled the air suspiciously. It would only be a matter of time, before the trio of fanatics would notice the squad of heavily armed mercenaries.

John took cover at the right side of the entrance, pressing himself against the cold stonewall.
He made a gesture that one of the other mercs would do the same at the opposite side of the courtyard entrance.
John checked his gun. So far it had gone smooth. But something was off about the situation, but he couldn't figure out what it was at the moment.

The rain continued to smash down at the ground and in the distance, the faint sound of thunder could be heard.

Miles responded a little too quickly but took cover at the opposite side of the courtyard entrance. Carefully she took a peep just to see three reptilian creatures , two large ones playing and a little one with it's back turned at the opening. She sighed. Miles may have not liked playing with cards but her dad always took a pack with him and challenged anyone for the fun of it.

"I don't think my dad would want to play with a bunch of burly lizards."

Things were going too well during the course of their objective and it was only a matter of time before something goes wrong.

The weather was turning into a storm thus making Miles grip tighter on her pistol.

"Oh, for the love of God..." Maarucye mumbled to himself as thunder boomed from the distant sky. If the rain wasn't bad enough, lightning would seal the deal. Probably by seeking out his metal implants and limbs. He just wanted to get inside the compound as soon as possible. He crouched down next to John. W3RM settled down a fair distance away.

John looked at the small force that had gathered by him. The rest of the mercenaries seemed to wait further behind.
He looked over the corner and saw that the lizards still played cards, though they seemed more and more suspicious and frequently sniffed in the air.

"Be ready. I'm going to take out the little one, you try to take out the rest. In five." John whispered to the other gathered mercenaries. He did a final check on his SMG and his armor. After the five seconds, everything happened fast.
John rounded the corner and fired a burst towards smaller one of the ugly lizzards. The shots hit the back, with a sound of metal against metal. The smaller one stumbled forward while the two larger lizzards rose simultaneously with inhuman reflexes and shot volleys of fire against John and the mercenaries.
John ducked by some drenched wooden crates, that seemed to be scattered behind the walls, explaining why he hadn't seen them before. The crates reduced to chips of wood fast by the heavy fire from the lizzards. Through the increasing thunder and the shots John screamed:

"THEY GOT ARMOR! AIM FOR THE HEADS AND LIMBS!"

Arthur hastily rushed behind cover, and took aim at one of the guard's head. His eyes narrowed, and he let out a low guttural growl. He yelled something in a series of garbled clicks and slurps, and fired off multiple rounds rapidly from his assault rifle, leaving streams of blue tinted smoke in the wake of the bullets.

((Does anyone want a map of the courtyard? Just wondering))
The bullets flew over the lizzards. However, the larger ones once again showed abnormal reflexes and agility and ducked while hissing showing their long blue tounges. The smaller one wasn't so lucky and Arthurs aim had been good, even through the rain. Some of Arthur's shots missed, but three managed to drill themselves into the soft tissue at the lizzards head.
Without the hail of fire, the shots fired by Arthur now echoed while the dying lizzard screamed a macabre roar, spewing up red drool before collapsing.

Not soon afterwards did the two other lizzards resume their fire, pinning the insectoid and human behind their cover, as the wooden boxes slowly was breaking apart.

Maarucye stood up and, with a loud PAFF, sent a purple ball of plasma searing through the air towards the lizards. As drops of rain struck the ball, they fizzled into steam, giving the plasma a tail of mist.

W3RM stood up and let fly with his Dual Raptors. A stream of bright blue bullets blasted out of each barrel, and he waved them side-to-side over the lizards.

Miles Tekit tripped backwards just as she fired another plasma shot at the lizards. It missed them by luck...or so she thought. The bullet bounced off a wall, up first then down and then hit the left before making it's way again at their foes.

"Please let that damn bullet hit them!"

The cyborg's plasma shot missed as the lizzards seemed to enjoy showing their extreme agility.
However, while Maarucye's shot missed, one of the lizzards wasn't quick enough and the wave of bullets from W3RM hit over its chest and arms. Rose red blood sprouted out from its arms and smoke arose from its chest.

With a fierce hiss, the now crippled lizzard jumped towards Maarucye opening its macabre jaws that where full with teeth and purple tissue between them. But before it could fullfill its jump a Miles plasma shot came flying through, ripping its head off.
The head flew on to Maarucye, where the tainted black eyes stared into the cyborgs lens before falling to the ground.

The other had now vaulted the table and was using it as cover, while releasing wave after wave of bullets.

John screamed. A chip of wood had been torn off from the boxes and had pierced his left thigh. The injury was superficial, but it hurt like if a sword had cut his whole leg open. Dark read blood now ran down from the wound, coloring the already soaked fabric dark red.

John gritted his teeth and fired another burst towards the now lone lizzard. They had to finish this battle quickly, or the noise would attract the other Sons of Liberty.

Maarucye grunted as the lizard's head bounced off his armoured chest; it wasn't something uncommon in an industry based on killing things. He was, however, annoyed that they were so quick. He fired another pulse, crouching down by the right-hand side of the entry to the courtyard.

W3RM leaped up at the wall surrounding the courtyard and grabbed onto the edge with his mitted hands, having put his guns away for the manoeuvre. He hoisted himself up, drew his weapons again and fired them down at the lizards, running along the top of the wall.

The lizzard was too busy with Maarucye that it didn't see W3RM until it was too late. It died without a sound and colored the ground red with its blood.
John halted out from cover, with his own blood joining the puddles of the lizzards.
"Anyone got a first aid?" He asked the other mercenaries.

Miles who heaved herself back on her feet, checked her gear for first aid. She was lucky. Miles handed over the only aid kit to John.

"You need it more then I do considering the fact your in such a bloody mess."

"Thanks." John muttered through gritted teeth while sterilizing the wound and covering it up with a bandage. He looked up at the courtyard, now filled with broken wood and blood.
The entrance of the industrial complex was seen as a large bulky gate. With a closer examination, it was shown that the gate wouldn't budge. Its console had been smashed to pieces. Beside it however a set of metal stairs led to a door, which worked.
Halting up to the door, John pressed down a code on the lock which opened the door with a low creek. It led into a well lit corridor which ended in another door.

John walked in to the corridor, looking around while holding a tight grip on his gun.
"Do you think there's something off about this mission?" He asked the rest of the mercenaries.

"No." Maarucye said. "I don't. Do you know something we don't? Because as far as I know being resisted by armed guards as we try to invade a mining complex they control seems pretty normal. Unless you were expecting that massive door to be unlocked?"

W3RM jumped down from the wall and landed without stumbling. He spoke with his lean snarl: "If you were expecting an army to be defending this position then I ask you: why did we take the most obvious assault path?"

((Yes, every merc has 600 credits on each of their account.))
"Special orders. Go for the front. With 600 creds, you stay quiet." John answered to W3RM's question.

"Besides, our employers didn't know the Sons of Liberty would be using such advanced technology. Plasma safe vests and the trap in the grove. And you heard the guards at the grove, they're not behind this."

"There is something I don't like about this. I've dealt with Sons of Liberty before. They're fanatics. At Renkoor they live like animals. Something isn't right here."

With those words John started to walk towards the closed door. It didn't have a lock on it, and went up without a sound. Before him a metal walkway stretched out to an office.
The bridge like structure was edged by waist high metal plates, and right beside the office a set of stairs lead down to the factory complex.
Several machines lay dormant, some being lit up by heavy lamps, tied up in the ceiling with two chains each. The lamps slowly moved, swinging in tact with the air-condition.

In the shadows of the complex something had been stirred up. It started to scan the facility and began a diagnostic.

Miles admitted that ever since they made their way to the courtyard, something was not right. She had bad feeling that they might have missed something very important...

"I'd say we keep moving while we can. I'm really hating this place plus it reeks."

Miles pinched her nose and kept up with the rest of the gang ducking out of the swinging lamps. The sooner they get this over with, the better.

While the mercenaries still was on the walkway, something started to move in the shadows of the complex. 4 beams of light flew over the mercenaries before settling on a lamp above them. The lights were minimized to green laser dots, all concetrating on the lamp.
Suddenly something flew past them to the lamp sending a shockwave after it. The lamp crumbled, turning to a piece of debris.
A Combat Mech came clamping in. It was 4 meters in height and almost touched the heavy lamps. Its sleek mainbody had four glowing points behind protecting glass and two legs sprouted out from the body, as well as two arms, each contining a gun. One of those now started to spin and unload a rain of bullets over the mercenaries.

"Sh*t. Get down!" John screamed to the rest of the mercenaries. Bullets flew over his head as he crawled behind the metal plating the edged the walkway.
The suppresive fire didn't stop and the mercs would now be pinned down until the Mech rusted down or ran out of bullets.
As the bullets continued to rain over them John adressed to the mercenaries:
"Anyone got any bright ideas?"

"Yeah!" W3RM snarled from behind his piece of cover, "We take the back door next time!"
He brought out his Dual Raptors and aimed at the side walls of the warehouse and fired them. The blue bullets ricocheted off the walls and came zooming in on the mech's flanks.

Maarucye was already working on something else. He had his sniper rifle out again and was taking careful aim at one of the two chains supporting the daymaker lamp suspended above and to the left of the mech. This chain was on the left side of the lamp and was not tied to the electrical cables; they were on the right.

He shot the chain, breaking it, and sending the lamp swinging sideways at the mech. John wanted bright ideas and Maarucye's was literally a light bulb.

((Curses Potato! You've spoiled my evil plan! ))
Helping the duo, John distracted the Mech making it focus its fire on the human while Maarucye and W3RM took their shots.
The reptilians attempts was futile as the bullets did nothing more than to shatter on the impact, sending blue sparkles over the mech.

Maarucye way was however more successful. The heavy lamp came swinging at the Combat Mech and it hit the armor of the sleek killing machine. A shockwave came flushing towards the mercenaries as a result of the impact. The wind made the other lamps swing irregularly and the Mech staggered before falling to the ground with a large boom which echoed long afterwards.
The Combat Mech seemed externally intact, but its interior must have taken a large amount of damage from the shockwave. The path was now cleared leaving an empty door to the mining complex behind the dead machine.

John rose up, looking in silent respect at Maarucye.
"Good thinking. Won't tell them you broke the lamp though." He said to the cyborg and then halted as the metal beneath Maarucye began to give away for the cyborg's weight. It was only three meters to the ground, but John still slowly backed off to the stairs connected to the bridge like metal walkway.

Meh I would have done the same thing.

That wasen't entirely true Miles admitted. Maarucye isn't the only one that can shoot from long distances and blowing up mechs. Pity she didn't get the oppertunity. Miles thought very carefully on how things were summing up and wondered how a bunch of thugs managed to bag a mech like that. They didn't come cheap so they must have bought it (heh yeah right like they have the brains to do something that simple) or rather stolen one.
Miles turned to Commander John with a worried look.

"This is more dangerous then I thought. Unless we all come up with another bright idea, I don't want to risk dying here in a base like this."

"Well, the way is open now." John responded to Miles. The bandage on his leg had a red spot, but it hadn't spread any further. John hoped it was because the wound had started healing itself.
"Let's get going." He called to the group and went down to the mech. It lay still at the floor, unable to move but with still glowing cameras, following John's movement.
Behind the body of the machine, a corridor reached out towards what seemed to be an elevator.

(No one has posted anything here in ages. I might as well start us off again or try to.)

Following down the corridor to what looked an elevator, Miles tried her best to overcome her worry but barely managed. The mech's *eyes* followed the group as they walked past it.

Just like in the cartoons Miles said with a bit of amusment in her tone.

For some reason she back stepped right back to the mech and took out the eyes. She figured she might as well take it with her and examine it at a later time.

Miles then ran after the group.

Meanwhile, John had reached what actually was an elevator. He looked back and saw Miles carrying the Mech's "eyes". The eyes had just been simple cameras with motion trackers. THey seemed slabby however, since they were covered in hydralic fluids.

"Is it really necessary to take them with you?" He asked Miles while looking at the disgusting mechanical parts.

John then turned back to the elevator and saw an orange sign which in an alien alphabet told the maximum weight the lift could hold.
Maarucye would have to travel alone. As would Cris, if she would want to hang onto her mechanical surrogate body.

((I'm usually at loss for long posts in this roleplay))

"Damn it." Maarucye muttered as he read the weight limit of the elevator. He'd be going up after everyone else, barring Cris. Even then, she could take the lift up before he did, leaving him down there alone. W3RM, on the other hand, stepped into the elevator.
