This time I used MapTool instead of setting up a physical board. I made a couple of very simple tokens to represent units of the humans and skelebots in Inkscape.
|A long way to go in learning vector drawing. Still, at least I can tell them apart :)|
|Mission setup. Brown segments are ruined walls that block line of sight.|
Harry activated and fire at the visible skelebot, destroying it. Then Erick and Don advanced towards their second objective. The skelebots rolled a scurry and took the opportunity to position themselves around their objective.
|Both sides on their way to completing their objectives.|
The humans rolled a scurry and moved away, with one robot following. The robots then rolled a firefight and Erick was killed before they could get away. At this point, the robots completed their objective.
|Never underestimate a berserk robot.|
This resulted in a tie using the mission victory points system: both sides completed their assigned objectives and both sides defeated two enemy units. Harry gains another level (now level 2) and the Dodge skill.
When victory seemed certain, the robots nearly turned the tides. Lesson learned: never turn your back to the enemy.
As this was an opportunity mission, there is no change to the campaign progress. The next mission will be a personal mission, featuring Ford alone.
