OOC time!
Shouldn't it be 82 HP, since previous turn was 84, and you got hit 2 this turn.
You shoot at Former Human #4. You hit for 1 damage.

Former Human #3 shoots at Former Sargent. He hits for 2 damage.

We didn't actually take any damage: FH #4 took a hit and so did FS #1. Apparently this game allows for monster infighting.

@raekuul: If you want to make an easy-to-read listing of statistics for the enemies, try using a tabular form. Like so:

EnemyHPArmorTo-HitWeapon/AttackIn Inventory
Former Human #370%0%+3PistolBullet (16)
Former Human #4100%0%+3PistolBullet (16)
Former Sergeant #160%0%-4ShotgunShell (11)

Obviously I'm guessing at some of the stats but you get the idea. The to-hit is probably best to explain as "roll d20, if 10+(modifier) is greater than or equal to roll, then it is a hit". In this way we can use positive numbers for a better to-hit chance, which is often preferable. (Percentages only work if you use them appropriately. Given a base 10 on a d20 there's already a 50% chance to miss: the current appearance would indicate addition/subtraction. Thus, adding 40% would make it 90% total chance to-miss, which is incorrect. You could also expect multiplication/division, but then you'd want to use 1 as a baseline and make the multipler lower/higher for lesser/greater chances to miss. All in all, if we're going to think in terms of dice, we may as well use integers.)

Okay, back to IC!

Well there is definitely some mutiny going on. Let's see if we can't take advantage of the situation.

SHOOT FORMER HUMAN 4

Hey, by the way... RP gain = damage taken / 2? I think we have 1 RP too much.

Hmm.. yeah, we do. you should have had 5.5 rage points most of Page 2 instead of 6.5.

You shoot at Former Human #4. You hit for 10 damage. Former Human #4 is down and dying... again...

You hear a pistol firing! You hear a shotgun firing! You hear the distinctive thud of something fleshy falling to the floor!

My post is better though, cause I pick up the bullets as well and I look for the meds and armor. :P
