"Dot12! No!" Carnegie yelled. She barely had time to react, hesitantly she gripped her stun stick, but no sooner had the robot been downed. Her jaw chewed air as she tried to process events, but then she saw the wires and the paste. She wasted no time, she hurriedly scooped up Elvis in her arms and turned to run out of the room, as she did so she yelled, "Look out! Issa'bomb!"

Yes, and yes - there are no active combatants unless someone goes berserk or something.

I'm gonna assume I would be able to recognize a bomb? Or at least to suspect it being one. Could I scoop up Elvis and run in the same action? We're out of combat right?

Their feet stepped upon the smooth rounded stones that lined the entrance to the cavern, clack-clack they said, as the pressure of a foot slid one stone together with another, and then onto the rustling sunwarm greyish blue grass, and dried chalky mud as they climbed the mouth, a light breeze blew past them, entering out into the highlands, a sea of short grass. Some dwrdumm shaped dots grazed in the distance. Nestled in the navel of the highlands was the growth, a red lush canopy of big leafed trees that stretched on throughout the vale. Some of the trees floated high above the growth, defying gravity. It happened sometimes for some reason that trees were ripped out of the ground only to float up into the sky were they bobbed up and down until they rotted and fell down again. In the middle of the growth ran a sparkling river that glittered in the sunshine. Further beyond that, the teeth of the world lined the horizon with sharp edges and roiling smoke pillars. A well-throd path meandered its way down into the growth. On the far side of the hillside, Dokktch knew there were more caverns nestled, a few of them even bigger than this one, but none were habited, least not by anything that could speak.

Staying by the cavern mouth would be the responsible thing to do she knew, but the growth and the caverns were indeed far more alluring, albeit potentially dangerous.

"Don't make me stab you in the back again, Gargalen." Korley said.

Ayna fired first, her round striking the robot's head, solid but sparking off.

Asha fired almost simultaneously, with similar results. This robot seemed quite sturdy it seems.

Then followed the BOOM of Mr. Creed's shotgun, the special slug almost visible as it hurtled downrange.  It hit the robot dead on and electricity zapped out, short arcs playing about the robot.
It stood for a moment, its servos running randomly as the taser shell discharged, and then fell with a loud thump.

A block of some putty-like material with a few wires sticking out was visible on the fallen robots back.

Ayna:  Rolled 13, with +9 (dex, prof,fighting style) or 22.    11 points
Asha:  Same roll, amazing enough. +6 (dex, Prof)  - 19. Hit. 6 points.


To actually enjoy the effects of a head shot, you need to exceed the AC by 10, falling short being a miss. In this case the robot's AC is higher th

Didn't ask for init, so going by order of post :)

Going to use this for now - thoughts?

Making Called Shots

A called shot is an attack aimed at a particular part of the body, in the hope of gaining some extra effect from the attack. The smaller or better guarded the area, the more difficult the called shot.

Called shots are divided into three basic difficulty groups: easy, tricky, and challenging. Easy called shots represent large areas of the body, and are made at a –2 penalty. They have relatively minor effects unless a critical hit is scored or massive damage is dealt. Tricky called shots represent either smaller areas, like a hand, or areas a creature protects well, like its head. Tricky shots receive a –5 penalty, and inflict more serious consequences. Challenging called shots represent very small areas like eyes, fingers, or creatures’ necks. They receive a –10 penalty, and successful hits cause significant short-term impairment. Beyond these challenging ratings lie almost impossible called shots that receive a –20 penalty. For called shots against non-humanoid creatures, use common sense and the categories above as guidelines. For example, a flying creature’s wings are treated as arms.

Rack the slide back, Creed inserted the first of the taser rounds into the shotgun. He leveled the shotgun and fired center of mass before dropping the shotgun and pulling both of the hand axes from his belt and stepping forward to engage the ‘thing’ in case it did not fall.

(00:15:55) Minion: Tusserk rolls 1d20 and gets 12.
(00:17:17) Minion: Tusserk rolls 2d4 and gets 1,4.
12 + 2 Dex +2 Proficiency = 16 attack roll
Taser-Shell [4x, 2d4 damage + Con Save vs Incapacitation, 1d4 rounds]
5 damage +Con save vs incap for 1d4 rounds

Doc looked up in alarm, half drawing his pistol before pausing and eyeing the robot cautiously, wincing at the echoing sound of gunfire in the enclosed area as he also stepped back to keep a healthy distance between himself and the dangerous robot. "It does not seem very nimble, perhaps if we could knock it over we could disable it and provide Carnegie access to undamaged components to use in making her device?"

"Look out!" Ayna shouted, raising her Uzi and quickly firing off a single shot, hoping to hit the creature in its more vulnerable head section as she stepped backwards towards the hallway they entered from, putting some distance between her and the deadly looking hand attachments.
