OOC: I’ll leave the rules at the top of the thread in case anyone else wants to join. As provided by Surda/Leonora:

“Our first game has three parts. Number one, it is a teamwork game. Everyone has been placed with a partner, which you will find on that board.” Ant the wave of her hand, a board materialized. “However each partner team is also a part of either the red team or the blue team. You will have a small light that symbolizes which.” A pile of light-up pins appeared below the board. “Number two, it is a shooting game. There are no live rounds, and no weapons other than the guns I hand out are allowed. You can keep them on you, but don’t use them.” And now for her favorite part. “Number three, there is a point system. You do not have to last the longest to win. Lasting till the end gives you 200 points. Each successful shot is 30 points. Using an illicit weapon loses you 100 points, losing your partner loses you 50. Shooting someone on the same team as you loses you 60 points. There are bonuses, but I won’t tell you what they are. I will say some people are worth more points than others.”
The board was as follows: (As decided by a wheel)


  • Casela Synthi-er and Saler (Security NE)

  • Quinn Kindle and Juliet Anders (Neither are officially here, but I’m godfathering them in. They can take it up if they want.)

  • Surda and Zachariah Cobb

  • Irida Kovacenkov and Kit Larding (Also a security NE)

  • Luna and Jonathan Kirel (RTF NE)


-The Board of Doom™

Irida froze and a shiver of apprehension when down her spine. The cold touch of the muzzle of a ‘gun’ and the soft insidious whisper of her captain startling and scary. Who would have thought Cobb was so good at stealth? She cursed softly in Russian. Wasn’t Synthi-er always berating her for not paying attention to her WHOLE surroundings. She started to turn, forgetting what Casela had taught her, and instead of spinning out of the line of fire, she spun into it and got hit most spectacularly by her captain. Irida was a good sport and overly dramatic. She grabbed her side under her arm where she would have been shot. She gasped in fake agony, eyes going wide. “Be…trayed....by…by…by my…captain.....uhhhhhh.” and she collapsed to the floor ‘dead.’
Agent Kovacenkov, RTF

The captain chuckled in quiet appreciation of Irida’s spectacular death throes, before turning to Surda and commenting “Why, for a moment there I thought the lass had been bitten by a pants spider! I guess these weapons truly pack a powerful punch, eh!”

As Luna watched the fight unfold she caught sight of the captain hiting onto of the other players. She went down so dramatically Luna could not help but giggle. She signaled to her partner and the pair took a few shots at the captain befor hiding back behind cover and looking for a new spot to move to that would give them a better shot.

And thanks to the distraction that Kovacenkov’s amusing theatrics provided, Zachariah came very close to finding out just how powerful they were, as a shot whistled past his ear and the smell of singed hair invaded his nostrils.
Snapping immediately back to full attention, the man raised his own weapon and peered for the perpetrator into the gloom…

Kit squeaked quietly as she was hit by a rogue shot aimed for the captain and collapsed to the ground next to Irida. “This is fun.” She was a bit embarrassed that she had been hit by friendly fire, but she would live. Surda had been sneaking around to shoot Kit, but had ducked and allowed Kirel to hit her instead. He’d never been particularly good at aiming.
-Surda, CoS

“Why, they’re dropping like flies,” Cobb whispered, before moving off into the shadows once again. Quickly enough, considering the amount of attention being drawn by his current location? On that, only time would tell…

Luna and her partner were back to cover by the time the captain started to retreat. She giggled deciding the hunt was on. She silently signaled to her partner as they moved quietly from cover to cover stalking the captain. She always mad sheure to looke around as she moved she was not going to get then down easily. Well not before she got the capten and SOC that was. When she had and opening she fired a few times at both the captain and Surda. Her partner copping her then they moved again.

Surda wheeled around quickly, firing off a few return shots. She didn’t hit anyone, but it was close enough anyone aiming at them had to duck for cover.
-Surda, CoS

Casela and Saler were moving around the room silently slipping from shadow to shadow, trying to block the glow of their badges as best they could. Every once in awhile, Casela or Saler would shoot of a couple wild shots into the air to discourage anyone from taking higher ground. Eventually they made their way to Surda and Cobb. Casela slipped quietly up next to them, “I am never letting Irida live that down. You took her out with style, Captain. I may start my own gossip rumor about it.”
Lt. Synthi-er, CNS

Surda grinned. “Make sure to note she was taken out before a mostly untrained Ensign. Kit can barely shoot, much less hit.” Kit Larding was a recent transfer from engineering, and she was still getting used to the idea of having someone else at the end of the barrel.
-Surda, CoS

Luna ducked back into cover. Her partner following. She repositioned then fired at the captain, Surdra and Cas. Her partner following sute until she told him to get back behind cover.

“Looks like we’ve backed ourselves into a showdown here,” Cobb murmured as his retreat was halted by the sensation of a wall at his back. His head turning quickly left and then right, he had barely time to register a possible escape route when a shot whistled past his ear, singeing several whiskers of his left sideburn in its path. His own weapon drawn, he peered into the murky gloom, the rapidly fading ghost of the offending laser beam hinting at a possible location for the shooter before it was swallowed by the dark. The captain unleashed a handful of shots in that direction, as much for cover as for an attempt to gain a hit, and then keeping as low to the floor as his aching knee could manage, he darted off to the right to scurry behind a half-wall.
