    Continued from >>11893172 due to autosage for player convenience.

    You don't dare stand and fight whatever the...thing...actually is, but the idea of it living to see another day - be seen by another living thing in this world - disgusts you. Pulling your lone grenade from your pack, you pull the pin, cook it briefly, and toss it over your shoulder.

    "nade out!"

    roll 1d20 to see how this works out for you

    Your throw is bad, but it is, after all, a grenade, and the thing behind you is at this point heedlessly charging. You hear the thud of the grenade exploding, and then a rapid meaty-sounding tumbling, as if someone were rolling a corpse down a hill.

    Putin won't care what we killed. Next time we're in the area we should give him a heads up though. Unless we're fairly close now, and we can just headback and tell him.

    It's a good thing I didn't prompt you to roll yet.

    "Turn and fire, guys, on three!" you steel yourself, "one," you see Bird shoulder his carbine, "two," Damsel is swallowing past a lump in her throat, "three!"

    The four of you spin with admirable cohesion and drop to one knee, opening up on the howling monstrosity.

    Roll 4d20 to see how your shots go.

    You see your slug fly off wildly, and have a moment to regret not loading buckshot just as the others open fire. Twitch is fastest to fire, and his AKS-74U draws a line of devastaton across the thing's favce and one of its arms; the beast screams in what you assume is agony, rearing up on two legs again just as Bird fires. His experience in the Zone shows, and his Burst catches the mutant in its already-ruined face. There's sudden, shocking silence - so shocking that Damsel's burst misses entirely, going wide of the mutant you are sure is finally, definitely dead.

    "What...the fuck...was THAT?" Damsel gasps between deep lungfuls of air.

    You and the others slowly approach the thing. Even now you're loathe to look at it; it almost stings, and the skin is still rippling, though slowing. Damsel gives it a long burst with her rifle, and the effect stops completely.

    It's at least six and a half feet tall, and would be almost humanoid if not for the too-long arms, multi-joined legs, and face still full of far too many teeth. Your gorge rises as you realize that the stalker skin it was wearing was real; how could you EVER thing this thing was human?

    Your first response is to use your PDA's camera to take a photo; you're not sure you can get the thing anywhere, and you're not sure you'd want to touch it for that long, anyway.
    >> Stalker Out of Here Getter 08/31/10(Tue)04:29 No.11893652
    Probably, but you'd make it just as the night was getting dark; you're quite a ways away.

    I've never played the games so I know dick, but if there's a system, try sending the pictures to Putin.

    If not, take as many pictures as we can, different angles etc, including with the gang next to it for size reference.

    And if we can't send the pictures or drag the entire body, remove the head. If it's psionic like it seemed, the brain seems like something to inspect further. We can carry a head much easier than a full body.

    "I don't want to try for Rostok tonight," you say, "not after this," the others nod. The idea of braving new, lonely woods does not appeal.

    "Bird, help me cut the head off, and let's take it back to the hangar. Get a few more good shots, too."

    "What about the body?" Damsel asks, though you know she knows the answer.

    "We burn it."

    It takes some time, but your group manages to seperate the thing's head; it makes you uncomfortable just TOUCHING it. The hike back to the hangar is utterly quiet but has totally lost any sense of pleasantness; by the time you get back, it's early evening and you've never been so glad to see a bunch of unbathed slavs squatting in a derelict building. You address one of the door guards, "Say, mind giving the captain a buzz? We have something that I think he'll want to see."

    (and that, guys, is it for me tonight; I plan to run a session tomorrow if I can starting earlier (8 pm) again if possible; if things don't work out and you don't see the thread go up, though, don't worry - I'll either be on again later or on another day; feel free to comment/ask questions/etc.)
