End of the Demon City playtest I just did. Two 2 PCs left
"I'm getting in the elevator!"
"Uncontested, you can go ahead"
"I'm gonna try to...get out from under it?"
"Ok, so still one die. It's blinded so it'll just lash out. It's got one die. Go."
"It rolls an 8"
"It swings this thick arm and you just see Harish fly across the hall and slump to the ground.
(So...now you're unconscious you'll miss one turn for sure and then roll to wake up each round Toughness rounds and if you don't you're dead")"
"Ok so what are you going to do?"
"Can I grab him and pull him in the elevator?"
"Yeah I guess the only thing it can do is randomly stagger after you blind"
And so the drug dealer gets the PI into the elevator. United by the sticky nectar of fear.
The door closes.
A quiet round in the elevator. The PI makes his waking up roll.
Then -runch- above somewhere.
The PI pushes all the buttons on the elevator.
A hoof comes through the ceiling, the lights flicker.
I forgot to say "the lights flicker" actually.
The doors judder like open?close?open?
They roll and get out into the hall, a crash behind them as the elevator drops like...10 feet?
"You see a pair of claws reaching up out of the elevator clawing at the floor, and the head emerging"
"You're still hurt, one die"
"I'm gonna shoot the elevator cable"
"Ok, you're hurt, too, your firearms sucks, even though it's a non-moving target--so still one die, but it's still blind so it's got one die and..."
"The cable snaps and you see the whole elevator guillotining down. Bones rip and just shear in half and then two hands and the goat head just spill onto the carpet."
