Allegiance -- Finale

Neo-Prussian Boarding Party

A melee trooper attacks Captain Harris, killing him.

The rifleman takes cover and aims at the last surviving Vol's hiding spot, waiting for him to appear.

Vol Boarding Party

The Vol trooper throws a switch on the back of his flamethrower.

Image
He charges towards the Neo-Prussian troops. The rifleman fires at him and misses...

Image
...And then the flamethrower's fuel tank explodes, killing everyone in the room.

Final Overview
Image
Quite an impressive level of carnage, I must say. Out of the 47 minifigs involved in the battle, 10 survived -- Santa's contingent, two Scythian marines, and a Neo-Prussian soldier.

And here the battle ends. But our story is only beginning...

Image
"Well, looks like our Emperor's gone off to the great parts bin in the sky... kind of sad, really."
"Yeah, if not for the part where we're ritually killed and skullfucked for failing to protect him."
"Does everything in our culture revolve around skullfucking?"
"Apparently."

Image
*FWOOSH* "Ah, the brave heroes. Please accept my thanks --"
"Who are you? Identify yourself!"
"I am the current Colonial Governor, the civilian leader on this ship. I see you have wounded --"
"That would be an understatement, yes."
"There is a medbay two levels down. We can treat them there."
"Well, what are you waiting for? Here, help me drag the royal almost-a-corpse."

Image
One medbay later...
"Ugh... where am I?"
"You mean you don't recognize your own ship?"
"This thing is five miles long and every single inch of it looks the same. It's still a valid question."
"You're in the Level Six medbay. The Scythians and Prussians defeated the Anti-Immortal boarders and fleet."

Image
"And I suppose these two men would be their representatives? Thank you for saving us."
"No problem. But we still have work to do."
"Ah yes, the political questions. Treaties, trade arrangements, allegiance. It won't be a problem. Our scoutships brought news of your war long before our motherships entered this galaxy. And we chose sides the moment we fired on that Immortal ship."

Image
"Well, then, everything is settled. This is unclaimed space and the only people who might have contested your claim to it are drifting in space behind the ship. We'll escort your ship to the planet."

Image
*END TRANSMISSION*
*Office of Naval Intelligence, Probe 213FTY4S-719 reverting to stealth mode*
*Standing by*

Image
"Interesting, Major. Very interesting."
"Don't you find it... suspicious?"
"What?"
"You know, that their ship's cabins look exactly like ours..."
"Really? I didn't notice."
"What should we do now, Vice Admiral?"
"...Isn't it obvious? Mobilize the fleet. I think it's time we paid our new neighbors a proper welcome, don't you?"


Thanks to all who participated in the battle. I had a lot of fun running it, and learned a lot -- as a result, I was able to make some much-needed improvements to the spaceship weapon rules. In a few days I'll run a solo battle to see how they pan out.

That turned out unexpectedly well. What did he roll for damage?

I'd actually seen that coming, hence the guy who was put on response. He paid the ultimate price for his failure.

9 on a 2D6. Enough to wipe out both the minifig and the ripper droid. Not bad at all.

Heh, nice. Once again, my survival is dependent only on me showing up late to the party.

Actually I think the biggest factor was the inclusion of the Peaches -- which was a snap decision I made the day before the battle started. Ironically, they ended up saving the day for the T.L.A. and the Anti-Immortals by forcing the Immortals and their allies into a two-front battle.
