so basically necron was waiting for us at the top of the stairs, saw right through Glitch’s stealth/cloaking and started parley. while he did this, we noticed the spike of Ral Khorax behind his throne in some sort of sconce. anyway, he offered us a chance to work with him and not get killed by his minions (but still slowly turn) if we turned on Spetch and the others. To make the offer more convincing, he opened a portal to some zombie dimension of infinite zombies.
While Rhodes considered this generous offer, Glitch started attacking, freezing the majority of the horde and then burning them. We got a bit lucky when the centerpiece of Necron’s guard, this giant eviscirator, charged me, rolled a 1, bailed its luck save and nearly fell off the cliff. A nifty force bolt by Glitch sealed that deal.
Oi teleported over to Necron’s throne and tried to grab the spike, but got blasted by necro energy from the throne which laid him out, pinned behind the throne. 2 of the greyborn proceeded to just gut him so he was down to zero by 15 or so.
Rhodes spent most of the time trying to figure out different ways of getting the spike and powering up. At some point, we figured out that we needed to detach Necron from the throne by destroying these wierd feeding tubes/wires. near the end of the round, Rhodes made his way over to throne and managed to get Oi back on his feet (still round 1 folks!).
Round 2, the awesome magic fire burns through some of the zombie guards and Glitch pulls another trick out of his magic ass by putting a barrier over the infinite zombie portal. Glitch and Rhodes then proceeded to systematically hack away at Necron’s throne wires while Oi shouted encouragement and advice (but not encouraging advice mind you). Necron is starting to get more and more agitated since he apparently sucks when he doesn’t have a bunch of zombies around (Oi was doing a bit of house cleaning) and the 2 wall crawlers he had left couldn’t damage me and needed a critical to hit Glitch.
Necron had a few more tricks and started trying to command pcs (Glitch with the mental fortification was a nice bonus) and a time rewind to make people reroll strikes so he slowed us down a bit that way. By round 3, he was down to 1 wire and managed to get the wall crawlers to pin me to ground (ripping myself free was doing more damage than their attacks). Finally, Glitch took out the last wire and shut down the throne, freeing the spike of Ral Khorax.
Almost simultaneously, one of the wall crawlers catches Gltich on a RF bailing defend and takes him out with one hit (his armour is still environmental!). Necron gets off his throne and starts gnawing on my leg (this actually happened!). Rhodes is sitting there pinned to the ground by a wall crawler and Necron chewing on him so I took a shot with the big gun. Without his throne, Necron can take damage so now he gets worried and starts backing off. All the while, zombies are filtering out of the portal, cut off by the barrier.
Necron’s seriously worried now and seems to be trying to get out but Oi catches him with an anti zombie shot, and Rhodes starts a burst, blowing him away. they go down fast when things start to turn.
So, we called it there, Glitch is still KOed (but not bleeding), Necron needs to be finished with the spike, the zombie portal is still open, there’s like 20 zombie stalkers milling around and we can still hear that eviscerator downstairs making trouble.

The next phase of this intense fight was the extraction. With Necron 99 eliminated the remaining zombies were momentarily stunned. The Crew managed to revive the fallen Glitch and make their way down to the second floor where they had left Spetch, Sera and the other survivors they had rescued from Necron 99s Pantry. They found Spetch critically wounded and almost all of the survivors dead. Only Sera had survived the Zombie Evicerator by hiding in her cell. The Stun wore off and the zombies began to fight again. In a mad dash the Crew managed to get Spetch on his feet and flee back through the coolant flood. The coolant proved to be a much more difficult obstacle on the way back as the distance to be covered had increased. The crew prevailed in the end, with a little erosion and a missing foot the damage is visible but Sera would say “worth it”.
