Pursuing the stealthy intruders, the party heads back inside at a swift pace. You take the stairs upwards, briefly pausing to check each floor for signs of intrusion. After several minutes of tense running and kicking open of doors, you alight on the 6th floor landing and push open the fire doors to the main hallway; the door is stopped from opening fully by the body on the floor. Once you manage to push your way into the hall, you check the vicinity for signs of the intruders, and Marcusís ears pick up a sound that the rest of you miss Ė the sound of suppressed weapon fire. You follow his keen senses around several corners until you see Marcus paused at a corner that leads around to the main landing with the elevator core.

Marcus can see a pair of armoured figures crouching over the body of a dead security guard, one of which is going through his pockets. The other is checking the dead manís equipment belt, removing a ring of keys. They are both armed with automatic weapons. A third figure suddenly appears out of thin air with a shimmering crackle, stood upright over the other two. It steps over to the elevator controls and presses the Ďcallí button. They seem to have a pretty clear idea what theyíre up toÖ

Marcus leans against the wall at the corner, listening to the intruders.  He knows this is going to be dangerous, but he decides he can't wait around for them to stumble upon some other innocent bystander.  Marcus says a quick mental prayer and holds up 3 fingers to his companions, which quickly becomes 2, then 1.  As soon as Marcus' last finger closes into his fist, he rounds the corner and charges right into the intruders.

Hondo whirls around the corner and gives Marcus some cover, the big 12-guage barking loud.

"This is why we can't have nice things," Alice muttered before she let Lady Joan add her voice to the discussion.

These guys are pissing Franklin off. Not a good move. The revving of the autoaxe is lost underneath the gunfire, but soon the last thing someone will hear is it tearing their flesh and shattering their bones. Franklin is angry.

Alice opens fire on the intruders, using the corner of the corridor as cover. The large caliber bullet slams its target into a wall, leaving a dent, and the other two react by dropping into crouches and readying their SMGs. Marcus charges forward into hand-to-hand range, attempt to close the distance as quickly as possible before they can bring their guns to bear; Hondo covers him with a shotgun blast that takes a second intruder off their feet, peppering the walls with buckshot. As Marcus leaps at his target, he lashes out with a vicious kickÖ which is promptly neatly blocked, with surprising precision.

Figuring the boys could beat down this last jerk without her supervision, Alice turned to Elsie. "Think there are more of them?"

With his initial kick batted aside, Marcus changes tactics, lunging forward and locking up his opponent's weapon arm.

Hondo racks another shell and covers the hallway.

Franklin rushes towards the last man standing and delivers a brutal overhead smash, aimed straight for the poor man's face.

Alice, assuming that Frank and Marcus can mop up the last intruder, turns to speak to Elsie. Thatís when the shit hits the fan. Frank, bellowing like an enraged bear, charges down the hallway, revving autoaxe swinging to-and-fro. The surviving bad guy sees Frank coming and his eyes widen as if he understands precisely what the roaring rock-cutter will do to him if it hits him.

As Frank swings at him, the intruder ducks under the blow and kicks Ė hard Ė at Frankís shin. With a wet Ďpopí, his right knee dislocates, and the big man topples off to one side. The buzzing autoaxe hits a nearby steel support pillar and, with a flash of sparks, comes apart spectacularly. The end of the axe bounces off the wall before falling and, with the head still spinning at lethal velocity, slices through the meat of Franks right thigh all the way down to the bone. Frank, rather unsurprisingly, goes down like a sack of bricks.

As everyone else looks on in horror, Marcus is the only one that doesnít hesitate before acting. He lunges at the now blood-spattered intruder, trying to get a firm grip on him. The intruder responds by jumping in the air and lashing out with a kick, using Marcusís forward momentum to propel him backwards and out of reach. He hits the ground, rolls, and bounces back up onto his feet, weaving away around the corner.

Franklin remains sprawled on the floor, too stunned over the sudden loss of his beloved autoaxe to do anything.

"Fuck!" gasps Hondo, leaping over Frank and charging down the corridor after the intruder. He blazes away as he advances, aiming low to throw a knee-high load of buckshot down the corridor.

Alice's stream of profanity was drowned out by her jet pack as she bounced around the corners to plow into the stealth suited intruder.

Marcus took one last look over Frank's leg, satisfied that the bleeding would be controllable until they could get him more permanent treatment.  The worst of the wound dealt with, it was time to deal with the man.

"Look at me, Frank.  Frank!  Look at me.  You need to keep your head about you, man, this is no time to feel sorry for yourself."  Grabbing one of the downed Intruder's guns, Marcus continues, "I need to go help take care of the bastard who did this, but there may be more around and I need you to be paying attention."  Setting the gun on Frank's lap, Marcus stands to go after the others.  "Keep pressure on that wound and if you see anyone or anything suspicious, you'll know what to do."
