Gantz RPG Mission 2, the continuation
I guess I'll just get us right into the action. I'll cover all of the actions that had been posted before the original died and the repercussions of each, then go into a more general view. Here are the previous actions that had gone unanswered:
When she entered Tomoe stopped just inside the building. She felt her muscles tense and she swung her sword with all of her might while simultaneously extending it to it's greatest length while she charged into the cluster of aliens inside
Results: As the sword rapidly extends, Tomoe's arm and back muscles seem to grow and large, pale, vein-like tubes seem to emerge from them. The sword swing takes out a few of the department store's racks, slicing them neatly. The swing hits it's mark, easily slicing the unsuspecting aliens conversing behind a rack full of CDs in two, killing them instantly.
Koi didn't hear Tomoe, he had made up his mind to check out the the giant cluster at about the same time and took off at around the time she finished. Now after a bit of deliberation while running he decided to go all out, and head in shotting at every alien he saw.
Seeing Tomoe pass by him again, How does she keep doing that?, he thinks as he continues, but shakes the thought. Immediately he aims for the two aliens Tomoe bypassed.
Koi continues to fire rapidly, at everything that moves, while trying to keep moving/dodging himself.
RESULT: The initial shots were successful. The surprised aliens' heads and bodies exploded without much resistance. The two Tomoe had passed also met a quick end, but not before one let out a howling screech that seemed to fill the store with it's horrible high-pitched din.
Without really being able to aim, just praying that she may not cause her own and Tomoe's death, she pulled the trigger as fast and as often as she was able to.
RESULT: Unfortunately, all this accomplished was destroying some of the walls and killing some bystanders.
Looking into the scope, he saw that there was a lone alien peering into the department store confusedly. He looked up, looked back down, locked on, and pulled both of the triggers.
RESULT: The alien's arm is blown off and it gives out another inhuman howl. It looks directly at Dino and glares, eyes blazing with hate and blood lust. Clutching the bloody stump that used to be it's arm, it sprints to the other side of the building and jumps towards one of the buildings that the larger dots were lurking ominously within.
General result of the actions: While reaching their targets, Tomoe, Koi, and Naomi had also succeeding in slicing, maiming, or generally blowing up 6 innocent bistanders: A pregnant woman, a newlywed couple shopping together for their new house, a lonely old man listening to music, a child who had been playfully running from his mother, and a middle aged woman buying a new blanket for her and her husband's bed. Seeing some invisible force suddenly cause the violent and gruesome end for these people and the aliens was enough to start a massive panic. The inhabitants of the store soon started fleeing for the exit, screaming and causing a ruckus. Tomoe unfortunately was caught up in the wave of people and is currently being pushed and shoved towards the main exit.
The remaining aliens in the store, however, had different plans. As the terrible screech resided, the aliens in the store turned towards the new aggressors. Their lanky frames grew into hulking tanks of muscle with bulging eyes and frothing mouths and red skin. One of the aliens, spying Koi firing randomly, lifted up a large display case and lobbed it at him. Another, using it's massive leg muscles, hops to the high ceiling, smashing his appendages into it, and started crawling towards the gantzers. The remaining three aliens hop towards the gantzers, using display cases and the floor between them as temporary perches.
Meanwhile, a man in a black, skin-tight suit watches the events unfold outside of his windows with a smirk. He takes a puff of his cigar and merely waits for the inevitable destruction of the new team.

(If there are problems with the map, direct them to Sidharthavicious, he's working the maps since I'm a bumbling simpleton.)
GM recommendations/notes: Get Naomi out of there or some help, there's a very real possibility that she'll die. I don't want to kill players just yet but there are some real odds stacked up against her. Also, your characters might be getting guilty about now for killing those bystanders. Tomoe killed the pregnant woman and the old man, Koi killed the couple and the child, and Naomi killed the old woman and 2 other bystanders. I won't let the guilt get in the way of your actions for now since this is the heat of battle, but it might make interesting perspectives into characters' personalities.
And, we're off! Have fun with your posts and tryyy to limit them to just one action(besides speaking) per post.
