And so, there they were, Sitting atop a cliffside, Aku's heart racing for, what was in all intents and purposes, aku's first real run with his new group. He was excited, because finally, after dwarf love squabbles, and the other "milk" runs they had, where he was essentially a chauffeur, their plan actually included him, and some of his (new) toys. He was waiting patiently to put them into the air for their first, and only mission, when they hear the sudden high pitched roar of motorcycle engines coming around the corner they're waiting at. Following them is the caravan of vehicles, drones, the transport vehicles one of which is two lanes wide and easily 100 feet long and armored to the tooth. And, squashed in amongst all that the tanks... wait, tanks, yes TANKS! "Oh Frak" Aku thought to himself, "We didnt pack enough explosives for this..." And so the caravan slowly rumbled along the road, as we formulated plan B (and i mean slowly, because it FELT like it took us an eon to come up with plan B...mental note, ALWAYS make plan B from now on.)
And so the road explosives went off, as originally planned, as i sat back, with nothing to do, under plan B. One cruiser motorcycle went flying through the air, apparently taking the direct blast of one of the charges, as do most of the drones on the point. The transport vehicle that was smaller was beaten but not out, and the tanks rolled through the dirt dust and debris like they were having wet noodles thrown at them. Before the dirt settled, an earth elemental (i think) manifested (i think) and caused the roadway at the vanguard of the pack to drop out, sending every vehicle behind the largest transport plummeting down the cliffside, if anyone in the tanks survived that tumble (unlikely) it would be quite a while before they would be able to rejoin with the rest of the remaining vehicles.
With our charge MORE than finishing, we hightailed it out of the area, only Arrow staying behind to follow the dwarves to see where they go, and what the Ares response is.
