Rolling for initiative!

---In the Fire Escape Stairwell---
> ESCAPE THE BUILDING.
APPLY MEDICARE TO THE WEAKEST/UNCONSCIOUS ALLY WHO IS OUTSIDE
> ESCAPE THE BUILDING
TRY TO REBIND THE SPIRIT
Allie runs out after KICKWOMAN, and meets her gaze as the spirit begins to descend the next flight of stairs.
KICKWOMAN falls to her knees, blank-eyed and shivering slightly. I guess briefly connecting straight into Allie's mind has that effect on people.
KICKWOMAN is bound by Allie! KICKWOMAN owes Allie 1 Service!
> SHE'S IGNORING ME? Attempt to knock her down.
> Set-Up maneuver.
> FINISHING MOVE
Bright cartwheels out of the room right behind Allie and unleashes his full martial arts prowess onto the stunned KICKWOMAN!
SET UP MOVE SUCCESSFUL!
HIT! 10P DAMAGE!
HIT! 5P DAMAGE!
DAMAGE STATUS: *MAXIMUM OVERFLOW*
Kickwoman is smashed onto the floor, opening large cracks onto the concrete. He form begins to phase in and out of existence."O-one foot... In the grave..."
Kickwoman dissipates into a thin puddle of ectoplasm. KICKWOMAN has been vanquished!
---On the Street---
> Make a dash after Faust, because chasing the KICK-SPIRIT will be HARD
Backsmasher ignores the fight and runs after the wounded summoner, screaming like a man possessed!
...Faust completely fails to notice him, as does most of the crowd. A few troll-sized steps later, and Backsmasher is right at Faust's side.
---In the burning apartment---
Wait am I unconscious again from the smoke?
Leave the apartment as quickly as possible and get back in the car. Invite fellow shadowrunners to join me for another adventure.
Vargall has A PLAN. He jumps out the window and-
Vargall falls facefirst down onto the street. Perhaps the quickest route was not necessarily the safest.
ANYWAYS! He gets into his truck, revs up the engine, then honks the horn repeatedly, hailing the others in morse code and inviting them to join him in another adventure!
---On the street---
> ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ RUN THROUGH THE CROWD
Faust, clutching his bleeding stump, attempts to get as far away from the murderous legspirit as possible. He doesn't manage to get TOO deep into the crowds, but at least he's pretty sure no one followed him, especially no giant invisible trolls.
Faust hears Vargall calling him back to the car with morse code honking.
What will you do?
