The inside of the big building is all one big room, well lit from above. The floor is one solid slab of stone, except for an area in the center that is metal. The metal area is marked around the edges with bright orange paint, with stripes that make an X through its center (should be pretty clear which part of the room this is). In the far corner of the metal area is a small metal cabinet of some sort, about waist high.
On the left hand side of the room, a set of metal spiral stairs leads down. In the opposite corner is a huge pile of metal debris. Parked throughout the room are four of the Dude’s jifs and, behind them, are a number of the smaller atheevee’s. Several Dudes crouch behind the jifs, weapons trained on the doors. Dudes A, B, and E are armed as normal, with the nine meel supmayshinkuhns. Dude L has a long-barreled reeble, like you recall one of the Dudes at the gates of Nauthan wielding. Dude F has what appears to be only a metal tube in his hands, about the length of a longsword. He also has a large metal backpack strapped to his back.
SURPRISE/READIED ACTIONS ROUND
As the big door opens, Dudes A and B let loose with bursts of bullets at Shareev. Shareev, however, finds this easy enough to avoid, by ducking behind the frame of the metal door. There is a “whoop” sound as Dude L fires his long reeble at Brand. The bullet hits, but most of the damage is absorbed by the kel suit Brand acquired from one of the long-since deceased Dudes [a very disappointing damage roll results in 1 hp damage to Brand]. The other two Dudes do nothing.
