    Unless your people have the intent to kill, then we could have some cool character developing conflict.

    the actual Biotechnica employees all seem like they'd want to kill Kiyoshi and her group. So it's better if Magus' team sticks with that. Vash and Benito and Ham would all only use lethal force as a last resort. Regardless you'll want to bring out all your big guns, because Kiyoshi's team has planned for you to all try to kill them, and they're not going to have any qualms about doing that to you, and they're bringing more to the party than you might guess. Plus, something else that's coming will make you glad you have drone ready to kill

    This is it folks, the first big battle. And rest assured, these two are well equipped to make the fact that we vastly outnumber them not count for much, so be ready for one hell of a fight

    Will Shogun be ok with an ice phoenix and a stone dragon...? I feel moderately dwarfed in usefulness (hah dwarfed). Also I thought reality hacking was magic...

    Magus there's a couple things that don't add up about your post:

    1. What tank are your characters attacking?
    2. When did all of the reprogrammed magic guardians get down to the lobby?
    3. Slice really shouldn't be by Lantho. Lantho and Benito are in the upstairs of the building and the rules still state that non-mages aren't allowed up there, Dice, Whiz, and Tom are only up there since they snuck past security measures

    You're going to need to address these issues

    1) i misread. editing to "truck".

    2) when you crash a hole in the side of a building it gets really easy to get things in and out. Sentries are generally OUTSIDE a building, right? and lobbies are generally at the bottom of a skyscraper. I hypothesized the general location of the lobby.

    Here's how I'm visualizing it, correct me if i'm wrong: there's a large tower, magical-y with a parking lot or sidewalk around it. There's sentries, generally either dormant or roaming, going around the building or ready to respond at any given moment. At the first (ground) floor, a group of humans and dwarves are standing in a reception/lobby area, but a truck has just crashed into the side after shields went down, creating a large hole in the window/wall/door/whatever. Across the street, a couple assassins are looking with a couple sniper rifles and equipment.

    As soon as the shields go down and the truck makes impact, a whole bunch of sentries suddenly go beserk, attacking the truck and everyone inside it. Extra drones built haphazardly by Wrench join in the fight. Sentries are magical (it's a magic building inhabited by magic people, why not) or lightly mechanical. As the sentries flock in, a giant mirrorlike wall, the failsafe, goes up all around the tower in both directions, up and down, closing off at the roof and the bottommost floor and cutting off all external supply of anything. It was originally made for defense against bombardment as a literal "failsafe" by the original inhabitants of the skyscraper, but never was used.

    3) Slice was assigned as a personal bodyguard of Lantho at all times. Upon returning to the building, he insisted on continuing to guard the man, and gave a few demonstrations of magical ability (mostly defense related) and the security grudgingly agreed after swearing him to the code of conduct/law/what have you. Both he and Lantho are now residing in his office at or near the top floors of the tower, towards which Smiling Tom is either making his way or already is arriving. Several stories below, Dice and Whiz are lying unconcious (and ignored due to not having removed the "wipe").

    Whiz is using technological cybernetics as well as nanotechnology, which should be well-developed in this era.

    Rift, a jack of all trades, uses prefab runes bought at your local retailer for prefab spells for the everyday person. you know, like a mini-fire spell instead of a matchbox. These spells are easy-to-use, commonplace and require no magical ability on the part of the user. Energy is pre-inserted by the fabricator, like how a souvenier company already has a battery (albeit with ten hours of life) inside their cutesy little toys. However, by manipulating how the energy is released from said commodity magics, one can mod a good enough technomagic equipment, not anywhere near even rudimentary magic, of course, but good enough for use. The way a blender and a toaster oven can be modded into a very low-tech paintball gun. Nothing like a rocket launcher, but still usable for distraction or whatever.

    He's using modded runes to help hold onto the sentry he's riding, and also to let it know he's a friend and not dinner.




    ^ Does that explanation sound good? correct any mistakes please.
