Sarge commands his men to open fire on the Roaches.

Sarge: Issue Orders: Excellent!
Roll:[5][1][6]. Success!

Sarge's men immediately open fire on their attackers, cutting one down almost instantly. The remaining 4 Roaches seek cover, far more cautious now.

Roaches: Blasters: Average.
Roll:[6][3]. Success.

A lucky shot grazes past Sarge.

Sarge HP: 76.

(OOG. A note on Sarge's men. While Sarge himself isn't as tough or as skilled in as many things as Buzz (He only has 7 HP) he makes up for it with the men under his command. They will follow any orders he gives and will continue to follow those orders until fulfilled (or they get taken out), or new orders are given. Additionally, they will succeed without having to roll for success, making them a powerful tool and force multiplier. When Sarge issues orders, he makes a skill roll to see how well he has organized his squad. Success means they act right away, as seen here, failure has them act at the start of the next round.)

---------------------------------------------

Buzz tries bowling for Rats.

Buzz:THIS. IS. SPARTA!kick: Average/Disadvantage: lots 'o' Rats.
Roll:[1]. Failure. :(

Buzz kicks the Rat square in the gut, propelling him with great force towards 3 of his fellows. Who catch him, dust him off, and set him back on his feet. Those who have wrist launchers decide to use them rather than get too close.

Rats: Wrist launchers: Mediocre.
Roll:[1][4]. Failure.

A sudden frigid wind causes the toothpick bolts to fly wide. Away from the desert of the open floor in front of the fireplace, the train has moved towards the steps leading to the entrance to the boot room. It would appear that at least some of the Elf's hoard came from outside, and it would appear they left the front door open a crack. Snow whirls round the Ranger's helmeted head, and the Rats he can see let out an involuntary shiver.

Now that he has a little space, Buzz activates his own ranged weapon. He points his left arm at the rats and fires his laser!

The LED blinks aggressively at the rats.

We now return to our previously scheduled RPG, already in progress.

Buzz sweeps his laser across the rodents before him.

Buzz: Laser: Excellent!: Disadvantage: Multiple targets.
Roll:[3][6]. Success!

Smoking Rats fly howling from the train as Buzz's laser sweeps across their ranks, leaving only two of the furry raiders left. They exchange worried glances.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarge orders another volly, but even as he shouts the words, his squad is already firing, dropping another Roach.

Roaches: Blasters: Average.
Roll:[2][3]. Failure.

Rattled at the fire being concentrated on them, their return fire is wild and hits no one.

(OOG. Sorry guys, the main power switch on my computer jammed and would power off my computer randomly, and then christmas happened, and I only now managed to dig my ancient netbook out of storage.)

(Oooof. May your power switch be swiftly repaired/replaced).

Buzz takes a moment to take a suitably heroic pose, smiling at the remaining rats and letting the light glint off his teeth just so.

"Gentlemen," he says, gesturing to the side with his thumb. "You'll land better if you jump off than if I have to throw you off."

The two remaining rats look at Buzz, then each other, before running towards the front of the train as fast as they can.

------------------------------------------------------------------

As another cockroach falls, the remaining two abandon their positions and flee into the shadows of the houseplant jungle.

Buzz strolls along after the rats, stomping just slightly louder than he has to so he can be sure that they hear him coming.

All the better to keep them nervous. After all, he doesn't want them to do something stupid, like disconnecting the engine, does he?

After a moment of silence, Sarge gives the order to move out.
