"Are they talking?" Dove Colt furrows his brow, putting his ear against the door. "They shouldn't be talking, heroes should be apprehending villains..."

Perception to overhear conversation:

"And to make matters worse, it's Sunset talking. Last time she was alone on-stage with civilians she went au naturel to buy coffee. We need to get in there now." Unfortunatly, Madame Mask's repertoire lacked basic door unlocking capabilities. She'll have to fix that when this is over. The fake Madame Mask gives a sheepish smile. "I don't suppose one of you two can open the door?"

"I don't pick locks, but..." Gaia shifts back into a more bearlike form and rears up, a nasty grin on her face. "I can open the door."

Bracing herself, she slams all of her mass against the door in an almighty ram.

At the sound of Gaia crashing into the door, Sunset snaps her shotgun down at the datachip Haven inserted into the console and fires a shotgun slug.

Time seems to slow down as Sunset makes the shot, bringing her shotgun to bear. Haven reacts almost as quickly, his horn lighting up as he notices the motion. The gun fires off, sending a slug straight at the port in which the datachip is inserted, but instead of striking true, a shimmering blue barrier appears in front of the console, the slug pinging off the barrier harmlessly.

Mechanical Explanation:
Haven beat the 26 with a 27 reflex saving throw. It was very close, but Haven got the win this time.

"Nice try, lady." Haven growls, reaching over to the datachip. "But you're just a step too late-- HRK!"

The last HRK comes from the fact that he's sent flying by a door, the reinforced metal dented in with the clear imprint of a shoulder. Ragdolling across the ground, he lands a few paces away from Vanish, winded and gasping in pain. "...holy shit..."

Vanish takes their forelimbs away from the door to the testing chamber, studying the intruders carefully.

Haven slowly climbs up to his hooves, swaying woozily. "Bit... of a bad spot, eh? Don't suppose you have a trick up your sleeve, you terrorist?"

Vanish shrugs, keeping their eerie purple eyes on the group, their form rippling in a slightly disconcerting manner.

"Um, Miss Sunset, what is going on here?" Dove Colt asks, looking between the villains and Sunset.  "Why are you talking to the bad guys?"

"They had me outnumbered. I was stallin' for backup."

Sunset looks to Madam Mask and gestures to the console with her shotgun.

"The walkin' doorstop's tryin' to download somethin'. Spare a second to get that shield down for me?"

"Consider it gone." The fake Madame Mask pulls a minor casting pose, while the real one focuses on doing it...

Daff convulses. As it turns out, trying to hold onto a big, strong metal thing that is electrocuting you and trying to get away is about as hard as it sounds like. He still manages to keep the suit from properly hurting Lex - but only just - before he staggers backwards. His legs feel like jelly for a few seconds. His mane sticks up along with the rest of his fur. At this rate, he's going to look like a tan fluffy earth pony soon. Thankfully, Crimson's next attack buys him time to recover. They seem to have fallen into something of a rhythm now.

"Did I get the code word wrong?" Daff asks first. It'd explain why nobody's responded to the evil he let them know about. Then, another thought occurs. "Do you think they're in trouble too?" he asks with growing worry. The worry solidifies into even more determination.

"If the others might be in trouble, we don't have time to waste! No more games, Mr. Ghost! Prepare to face furry fury!" Daff bellows, lifting Rousseau up with both forelegs. He hurls the squirrel forwards like a (squeaking, very small) javellin, right at the big power suit.

"Go for the eyes, Rousseau! Go for the eyes!"

Rousseau smacks right into the suit and finds himself clinging to its face. Whether from the proclaimed fury or simple terror, he turns into a little furry cloud of scrambling, clawing squirrel that engulfs the suit's head.

"Right. It was a distraction. Of course it was, heh, what was I thinking?" Dove Colt nodded, before stepping forward to face the villains. "Surrender now! You're out-numbered and out-gunned! If you don't submit, be prepared to face fresh hell!"

Vanish's form flickers and suddenly disappears. A moment later, Vanish appears in front of the console, holding their foreleg in front of the shield. Madame suddenly feels her attempt to dispel the shield be interrupted, which she suspects has to do with Vanish's strange non-interaction with magic. They're almost serving as an insulator against magic, protecting the shield.

"So this is how it's going to be, huh?" Haven sighs, shooting a glance at the console before back at the heroes. His horn lights up, and more of the featureless pony figures drop out of portals that open out of thin air, bringing the total on the enemy side to seven - five featureless pony figures, Vanish, and Haven. "Are you sure you can't let us grab the dragon and go?"

ROLL INITIATIVE! Heroes go first!

The Testing Chamber
Finally the attacks seem to take a significant chunk out of the suit - it's been holding out remarkably well in spite of its previous damages - and it stumbles in its pace, its chestplate almost completely dented in and sparking dangerously, letting out another volley of wide arcs of crackling electricity that sweep across the heroes.

"It looks like it's slowing down! You must have damaged a core circuit somehow, it's leaking more energy than it can absorb!" The dragon points out, before the suit again lunges at Lex, forcing him to go into a combat roll out of the way of its tackle.

As Rousseau returns to Daff's person, however, he notices something quite odd - Rousseau doesn't seem to sense killing intent from the suit. It has had ample opportunity to deal physical damage to Lex, but the suit has only mildly electrocuted him once, a process which appears to be automatic due to the suit's damages, and made several clumsy attempts at lunging for Lex which frankly, given its speed otherwise, it could probably execute better.

Daff and Crimson take 36 damage (burst attack).
Lex dodges from the suit's lunge (single attack).

"Nope." Gaia's form swells, growing much more bulky and muscular, and her wings grow larger and more imposing as well. Rather than assuming her full chimeric form, though she only takes on the aspects of the Bear and the Falcon, becoming a bizarre (and very intimidating) winged grizzly bear.

Throwing her head back, she opens her maw and roars, vibrating the air at the primal sound. It's easily interpreted to be a roar of challenge.

Combat Mechanics:
Quickdraw into Form of Cunning and Resilience, then using Roar to Challenge Haven, Vanish and one of the featureless ponies
Stat blocks:
[+4] Quickdraw - Standard Action (Self)
You may take two additional minor actions this turn.

[-3] Aspect of Cunning - Minor Action (Shapeshift)
Aspect of Cunning
At the end of your turn, if you did not use a Cunning power, this power gains 1 Charge.

[0] Form of Resilience - Minor Action (Shapeshift)
You enter the Form of Resilience (exiting any other form you are already in). You may resume your normal form as a minor action. While in Form of Resilience, you cannot use your basic Powers.

[+5] Roar - Standard Action (Burst, Form, Resilience)
Challenge up to 3 target creatures until the end of your next turn.
Life: 100
Energy: 11 (3+2-3+4+5)
Ferocity Charges: 0
Cunning Charges: 1
Growth Charges: 1

As a fresh wave of electricity flowed through his body, Crimson's vision went white as a strangled scream tried to escape his lungs but couldn't quite get out as he felt like his throat was trying to close on him. Being electrocuted wasn't fun in the slightest and he felt like such a thing needed to be stressed in schools more often. As the plan started to ease up and he tried to shake some feeling back into a slightly smoking body covered with pins and needles, it became clear that they needed to deal with this soon because those zaps were starting to get stronger and more painful.

With a deep breath and much less steady footing then the first time he had charged at this thing, Crimson lunged forward with a flying kick. Colliding around the section of chest plate damaged by the pipe and all the other things that they had thrown at it earlier, Crimson pushed off before grabbing a small ball ball from a pocket and throwing it at Daff... bursting on contact and soaking him with some cool, refreshing water to try and help him recover from the shocks a bit. Flipping in midair and landing (barely) on his back hooves, Crimson pulled out several pellets and started to throw them rapid fire at the suit, each pellet giving off an explosion that covered the locations themselves with a small amount of smoke, briefly hiding the damage they may have caused for now... leaving Daff free to attack once more. Crimson himself was breathing rather heavily, not exactly in the mood to waste words right now.

Actions:

[+3] Guard Break - Standard Action (Opener, Single)
Target creature loses all Armor and Resistance until the end of this turn.
Target: Living Suit.

[-1] Flourish - Reaction (Combo, Single, Healing)
Trigger - You use an Opener power.
Effect - An ally gains 5 life.
Target: Daff gains 5 life.

[-6] Rage of the Dragon - Reaction (Attack, Finisher, Single)
Trigger - You use a Combo power.
Effect - Deal 1d4+1d6+1d8+1d10+1d12 damage to target creature.
1+1+4+8+2=16 damage to Suit.

Living Suit is still Hexed.
