Given they probably still have regeneration, I think better of dividing the fire, and choose to concentrate on one of them.
I don't think she can reload all of those riffles at the same time.



Which one is she concentrating fire on?

Well surely if Halcyone can grab three people at once she can grab three clips at once. And if not I guess we're going to have to figure out the price of Extra Ready

I do some quick reloading:

Halcyone rapidly shoots with three arms. At first, the dragon-monster dodges, but as time wears on, she scores more and more hits (7 total hits).



The Dragon has DR 10... And is able to heal the shots as fast as its hit... but will this change when the riffle is not longer at the limit of its range?

Given the previous damage rolls were before the halving from too far range, the answer is probably not.

I decide to continue firing anyway. Accomplishing almost nothing is better than literally nothing
Quote:
dodges in second five seconds... only counting the first six rolls, because of reloading time.
So nine attacks per five seconds, or more like 15 per eight? I dunno. I'll go with the idea that Halycone has 3 more seconds of fire.

OK, the next block of two seconds has fire above 30 meters.

So I think the result of all this is five points of damage that get healed back immediately...

OK, the next second before reloading has fire just below 30 meters.

Then there will be another second of firing before we proceed onto another reloading phase, but that's in the next 10 second block. I suppose if it blows its dodge roll too often then it could get knocked out of commission... I guess Halcyone would target something else. I should have included the Size Modifier bonus 😅

Vassarious is pulled along by a drag line attached to the air lock as the sub moves along... they are ready to drop the line to engage in melee when the demons get closer...

The giant shark dodges the first burst of spikes (round 1 firing... really good rolls.)

Vassarious positions wrong, and tumbles through the water for a bit....


Will V try more "towing" or release and take the bulk penalty?


Halcyone focuses fire as the enemy comes closer and closer.

Quote:

The second critical success is actually really powerful: triple damage means the shots will get through the armor, and these are impaling bullets.
  • 19*1.5 = 28 -> 18 penetrating -> 36 injury
  • 13*1.5 = 19 -> 9 penetrating -> 18 injury
  • 20*1.5 = 30 -> 20 penetrating -> 40 injury
94 damage puts it at -2xHP

The bullets do something, at least, to the dragon demon, with a cloud of blood appearing next to it and halting its movement. It keeps thrashing though... its still alive.

For the next 8 seconds it will be at half dodge, half move, and for the next 7 seconds it has to roll vs. HT to avoid falling unconscious. (it recovers 10/HP a second regardless of form)

Which demon are the next shots fired at?
