Hero Orientation room;
State of the room- In short: wild and crazy. Those that could escape had a way out, though the day was still young, anything could happen at this point. Those who weren't on their way out the door were either taking their chance to fight the threat or were too injured, or we're still deciding which of the other two options they would prefer;. The event's security were there to join the fight and suppress the enemy assault rather than evac injured, unfortunately for those who didn't have much option than to lay around. The fight in the back was loud and quite obvious to everyone regardless. In the apex of the brawl one particular fighter successfully tries out a theory about fighting fire with water and with a well-timed moment of desperation the room's sprinkler's go off. The majority of people on the run certainly weren't expecting that, causing a bit of panic as things started to get very wet and a tad slippery. Anyone escaping through the front door would spot the two Anthropomorphic police officers who we're holding the escape path open. The lizard-woman of the two was peering through a sniper's scope and she seemed to have lined up a shot when the deluge poured on down, likely ruining her shot for the moment. She shakes her head, surprised by the turn of event and those with sensitive ears could pick up on a few choice expletives from the second feline officer who didn't seem very happy with the situation either. This wouldn't stop the fight out-right for either side, but a bit of water could very well be a game-changer, for who though was yet to be seen.
*Vs Eruption, the man of lava(Ursa Rajom, Nicholi D. Trake, Trace, Emma Fox &co.)- Ursa was the one who set off the sprinklers and for the moment his plan was panning out very well. No flamethrower units were left on the forefront, but the magma man was not happy with the large output of water landing on his outer shell of a body, the glowing magma inside faded a bit as steam rose off his frame due to the high output of the sprinklers. If nothing else, he was distracted enough to take his eye off the fighters who had challenged him and in Ursa's case he was free to try and bite away. His transformation was quick, within a second he was closer to a bear than a human and his charge forward went unimpeded, wet floor and all. His bite lands around Eruption's arm, the initial chomp is hard but it only just barely cracks the outer lava rock shell. Ursa could take his move from there, but Eruption seemed strong enough to lift the bear semihuman's larger size and just from touching him, there was still something of a magma core inside him making the ordeal that much more dangerous.
Nicholi got some assistance from a sharp shooter(a shot to the bot's arm courtesy of Sphinx), allowing the half-demon to free his arms and deprive the machine of it's head. It took some effort, but he ended up victorious. His attempt to give Trout some water after the fact worked as he found a nearby water fountain....however it seemed a little bit redundant as he got about halfway in when the sprinklers started to drench him and most of the rest of the room. Regardless, he had his water and his ally 'Trout' was just as amazed by this. At Nicholi's request, the young Atlantean looked at the gathering water, the water raining down, then the molten man who was in the middle of being attacked by other fighters. He gives Nicholi a dumbfounded look before he nods.
"Right....I can hit....gimmie a few......" he grunts, rubbing his right arm before focusing. He had a plan at least, but he was too busy enacting it to share. What Nicholi did next would be independent from his friend's actions. The son of Satan Trace was having even less luck tag-teaming with his new friend. Derrick normally would've been all for trying the old vaccum trick but Ursa's entire set of actions left him hesitating. With the floor wet and Ursa taking first strike on Eruption, Derrick had to face Trace and reluctantly give a no-go sign.
"Too many variables!" he shouts back; while confident he couldn't get hurt in his powered armor, between slipping up and Ursa in the way of the tornado, Derrick feared that someone else could get hurt in the collateral if they screwed up. He was still ready for a fight, but he didn't want to enact Trace's current plan. Eruption roars before trying to grab for Ursa and clutch him tightly as to stop the 'pest' before he could try to do anything else 'bothersome'. Emma, by far the furthest away from the struggle could see all of this clearly enough though she too would find that her siblings would find the scene too dangerous to do anything too crazy. The deluge didn't help and the hard pressure from the sprinkler's could lead to problems with sighting or even arrow trajectory at this range. Everything was up in the air by this point.
The lesser villains and machines that had survived the initial strike back left Eruption to his own devices and they attempted to move forward......
*Main battle with the intruders(Animalius and Minerva Rajom, S.P. Captain Sphinx, Fortune, & co.) - The battle was less grandiose than the fight with Eruption, but precise shots we're being exchanged by the four or so robots we're being more tactically sound, keeping on the move and utilizing suppressive fire to keep Sphinx and his retreating group from getting the upper hand. They continue dot open fire but accuracy didn't exactly improve, it did prevent them from focusing too much on the offensive however. Sphinx's advice rang out, but suppressive fire from all but two of his allies continued on since there was not much cover aside from innocent bystanders. Sphinx didn't have much to work with and while backup was coming it wasn't exactly what he had in mind....
Fortune was ready, but he'd need a bit of a head of steam to keep up with Drago, who strode over in the direction of the gun-firing robots. Drago twirled his blade before making it flat side out covering his mid-section. The buster sword was long enough for this job and he was at least confident in his weapons' ability to survive high caliber gunfire. The large oxen man was even less careful; wading forward with intent to rip apart the machines with his bare fists but unless Fortune wanted to fall in behind either being he'd need his own method. The area was fairly clear aside form some stragglers or corpses/near corpses littering the pathway. Though both him and Sphinx would spot some individuals take the break in extended firing to enter a bit more loudly.
Animalius had a clear path and his rhino form got pretty much all of the attention. He had a beeline right for the robots gunning away aside from two swordsman(Drago + Fortune) and a large monster of a man in armor in the way. The robots would also notice, not firing away but they would be bale to scatter if Ani went to bowl over the group. This would leave them floored, but Ani's momentum could easily lead him into the fight with the lava man instead. In the wake of the assault, a woman in owl-themed combat gear(Minerva) managed to floor one of the recovering bots with a flying kick to the chest. Though not out, the robot was knocked down, eliminating one shooter for a good amount of time though with Fortune, Drago, and Crete closing in as well this ragtag group probably better get things together before anyone else got hurt. Real first-responders were on their way but their job was to suppress the threat not so much rescue the injured and dying so they weren't exactly not helping. There were a few potshots from behind the wall Eruption was guarding, signifying that the second wave was getting antsy.
*Escaping group/just outside Hero Orientation into the lobby(S.P. members Kari, and Trevor, Alec, & co.- Officer Liz gives a nod as she tries to make sure her rifle wasn't compromised by the water. Those in the front of the group were still listening for more orders, so folks like Kari and Thompson had plenty of time to catch up. Thompson specifically was trying to text some people on his phone, though with water pouring down everywhere the normally tedious task proved almost impossible for him so he'd wait on that. Once everyone was close enough, Liz shouted some more before speaking specifically to Trevor.
"On it, we'll assist once we're not all washed up." she quips before assisting her partner in making sure everyone knew they should be leaving the room post-haste and judging by /her/ current demeanor, it was probably wise to not make the pissed off catgirl with a gun repeat herself. With that in mind, the civvies finally began to pour out of the room. As soon as they were out of the room, at the very least there were no sprinkler's dousing everyone The overall setting of things we're becoming much more different than the almost formal tone given out earlier. Most people left were either in the midst of running somewhere or we're too confused to run. The pathway Officer Vasquez(catgirl) pointed out was noted with the majority of people running in that direction. If they took her word for it; they'd be led to a monorail station o escape. However a handful of people and people with headsets were shouting certain words like alternate and emergency. A pathway to their left did have a few people running and some security was trying to check for alternate ways the villains could enter. However there simply weren't enough people to properly nudge everyone in the right direction. The entrance they came to even had some activity going on so it was down to where everyone wanted to go. In the back of the group Alec's chewing out of his new friend didn't go unnoticed, least of all by Samson himself.
"Thannnksssss bosssss..." the dino-man grumbles, worse for wear but otherwise not in a situation to question the more cautious Alex.
Villain orientation room;
While the Hero orientation room was going nuts, the Villain's battle was a little more methodical and closed in. Gunfire was still wild but everyone was a bit more methodical in their approach, things like cover and shields of all types were effectively used which meant that both sides were having hard times racking up casualties. The original GTS assassins were now on the defensive however they brought more than enough ammo to keep up the game.
*Willow- Willow's directed energy blasts were straight on but this time they only hit air....or some kind of energy barrier more accurately. A Man with some kind of bulked pack had his arms out and was successfully now deflecting the combined fire from the side of the room Willow was on. Luckily the barrier seemed to only work in bursts so only the initial attack was stopped. The attempt to grab a human shield or use pheronomes would work on those near her. The GTS fighters that were still standing were still more or less completely armored from head-to-toe and no foreign scent was going to be reaching them. Luckily Willow was considered small-fry so she still had opportunity to act as nobody was focusing fire on her. What she did with that time was hers to decide.
*Dark Lizard & friend- Dark Lizard's near bout of insanity got noticed, but was met with stares rather than gunfire, so he succeeded in taking focus away from Rose who took the moment of surprise to decide that if she was going to be melting all the metal anyways she might as well go all-or-nothing. She plunges her fist into the middle of the detonator mechanism anf focuses her disintegration powers. This seemed to work as a big guy who had been close by sees the device crumple tot he floor and gives a solid kickto the door knob. The door was 'unlocked' but didn't swing all the way open.
There was some commotion on the other side and the door fully opened revealing a bomb squad technicial and two accompanying officers on the other side, in the middle of attempting their own diffusal. Rose and the technician share shocked glances with each other. Just behind the police, there was plenty of chaos outside with a lot of people running past the room and even more going right and up. By this point the would-be escapees were definitely noticed...
"Don't let em escape!" a female GTS Officer shouts and the remaining heavy gunner opens fire on everyone by the door frame with Rose the prime target.
Nurse's office(Maria, Krystal, Hirro, & co.)- Kendra nods in response to Maria's comment, it didn't make her feel better but it was nice that she tried and it was the principle of the thing. Pro's 'interruption' got plenty of attention in the room, especially the higher-ups and Maria barely finished her question before Albatross, the lady in charge of the Guardians, responded.
"Yeah, a monorail in the north part of the building...was supposed to drop the newbies off right in the main part of the city once Orientation's done...guess it's done." she heaves wearily, unable to believe all this happened on her watch. "Anyways RCPD has got guys sweeping the thing to make sure it's not booby trapped before we claim the thing's a viable exit. Whatever you picked up was probably one of their officers..." she comments before the woman who could pass for a fairy responds.
"That was definitely Missionary, one of their TRU squad members. I know that yell anywhere..." she muses. Albatross shrugs, taking that as confirmation.
"I think they got sent into the Orientation rooms, that's where we have the biggest breech from what I know. We can probably help from there if we need to, not far from here and....and where did you get that transmission?" Albatross asks curiously, cutting off her own explination. She was starting to think about how hard it was for their radio frequencies to be unscrambled. "You GEAR tech or what?" she says in an almost accusatory manner though it was primarily stress that caused the lack of tact.
