The SAMAS does not, however, fire another missile. It's devilishly fast, though, and quickly paces Tiger, firing a burst from its rail gun. Tiger tries to dodge, rolling up, but is unable to avoid it entirely. Raven's shield absorbs most of the impact, but it is overwhelmed and dissipates in a rainbow burst of color. Some of the hail of bullets impacts painfully against Tiger's hide.

Spoiler: Show
The SAMAS has a max fly speed of 300 miles an hour. SAMAS attack, Tiger Dodge, damage x10: 1d20+4 20 1d20+3 10 1d4 3
Hits again, doing 30 MDC. The shield is depleted and Tiger takes 5 MDC.


It takes but a few minutes down on the ground for the two hovercycles to pull even with the ATV, then pass it. They wheel around a quarter mile away and turn to face the oncoming truck. The radio crackles to life. "I don't know what's going on, soldier, but you had better stop immediately or we're going to fire!"

~~~~~

The rest of the adventurers hear the noise of gunfire off in the distance. Those with enhanced vision can see muzzle flashes on the horizon.

Felix decides to call their bluff, gunning the engine and turning the cruise control on to keep the ATV moving in the event he decides to go intangible. For now though he'll stay solid and just change course to go around them, weaving to make the vehicle harder to target. He tries to choose a course that will force those chasing to come within range of the weapons of his teammates lying in wait in order to continue following.

OOC: Felix has 87% at Pilot: Automobile. Thanks to the +2 he gets from Combat Driving his dodge is +6 while driving the ATV. If it looks like they're going to fire enough to obliterate the vehicle rather than just stop it in its tracks then Felix will go intangible.

Raven gritted her teeth as she felt the barrier shatter and Tiger's body shudder with the impact of the railgun rounds. And he's a lot tougher than she is! But there's a chance now! "Bank closer, I'll tie him up with magic!" she calls over the wind.

The two hovercraft pilots open fire. Lancing beams of light streak out from the front mounted turrets. Felix frantically turns the wheel, dodging several of the beams, but they're too many, and there's a juddering shock as at least two of the ATV's tires pop!

Okay, so here we get some RIFTS madness. They're firing with their turret lasers, and each pilot has . . . four attacks per melee. It says the hovercraft can fire a single or dual shot with a single action . . . and it doesn't look like there's a penalty to firing twice for extra damage! Felix can dodge four times per round, with a +6 bonus. Dodge (second roll) applies to first four attacks):: 8#1d20+4 17 8 14 12 20 6 16 7 4#1d20+6 24 8...
He dodges the first four attacks, but the remaining four hit for . . . http://orokos.com/roll/721718: 24d6 88 a bunch of damage.

As Tiger banks in for an attack the SAMAS pilot fires another burst, but the dragon is able to skate over the hail of bullets. A net of magic energy summoned by Raven surrounds the SAMAS pilot, drawing its arms -- and the rail gun -- to its sides! They don't have much time to act before the mechanical strength of the power armor is able to break free!

Felix drives on, doing his best to compensate for the imbalance resulting from two of the tires being blown. Driving with flats is an inconvenience but still possible. Do it for long and it might cause serious damage to the ATV but it's not his vehicle anyway. All he has to do is get far enough and then his colleagues would take care of the rest.

James waits with the others, holding his laser pistol in hand waiting for an opportunity to strike. When the bandits come into range he intends to shoot at the hover cyclists and put up his MDC aura.
