As soon as the demon dodges, Vassarious comes about and continues to give chase close to the surface while shapeshifting to their native form to pursue it into the air.

Hopefully Halcyone can blow it away and that's rendered unnecessary...

If so, they stay in death marlin form and head back to the sub.

The death marlin is 10 yards away from the demon-gull, headed at speed 40 the other way.
Not too sure how you got to -9, but taking that as the base. Combing both would be 50 yd (-8) and adding both modifiers would be -11.

I continue to fire as the full flies off into the distance

Firing away (Skill +2 ROF, -3 Size, -9 Range/Speed)
3d6 <= 6
1: 4 + 1 + 5 = 10 ... failure
2: 2 + 1 + 2 = 5 ... success (1 possible hit)
3: 1 + 2 + 2 = 5 ... success (1 possible hit)

sum: 20, average: 6.66, success: 2/3 67%
No idea how necessary the damage roll is, it's a bird, but also a demon.

With bad math. 100 yards is -10, and 40 yards is obviously one category under that... facepalm.

Really nice shooting there! It dodges one of the shots, but one of them hits!

My stats for the demon says its got +5 ST and +3 DR over the base form, and keeps on healing 10 HP per turn. You're still going to hit the little gull pretty hard. Its got 3 DR and 8 HP. You hit for 28 injury... HPx-2. The little gull falters pretty hard, but keeps on flying.

Move is currently 10, I think, with top speed 40... so turning radius 4. unless you choose to slow down to 30 yards/sec. you spend 16 yards turning around, and that lets you go 4 yards beyond the original location... so 11 yards from the gull.

The gull is 15 yards from the original location, and moving at 9 yards a second. Its at -10 HP now...

Vassarious gives pursuit at best speed until they can get into striking distance.

Ah, so that would mean that the penalty ought to have been -8, and thus there would be 2 possible hits apiece, so another 12 damage? Everything that follows is moot if the bird is dead.

I suppose that's relative.

I brace myself as V wheels around to chase down the gull, and fire away as the demonic gull returns to my view:

I think we're supposed to add distance and speed, then get the modifier, so the shots stay like they are.

Another hit! this one does 38 injury, which subtracted from the -10 HP is enough to do the gull in.

You were going to be in striking distance this turn (40 yards/sec is really fast), but Halcyone's shooting has rendered that a moot point.



Next actions from both of you?

How far off is the boat, and is there any indication they are related to the Enemy?

If the boat does not appear to be a threat, Vassarious remains in their current form and returns to the sub.

Once onboard, they shift to humanoid form and request a course change and status report.

350 yards (-13 to spot, but +10 for plain sight, -2 for the effects of the waves, and +5 SM). Sonar won't be able to tell if they're related to the enemy, and you've nearsightedness right now.

I suggest that we go back to the sub now. If we end up heading towards the boat, I'll wave at the boat when it comes back into view.
