That's the big question, what would be better (as in somewhat less bad)- Run back and confess your mistakes, run away trying to flee from everything, or just keep on fighting.. Yeah, it sucks no matter what you do D:
Trooper: Sir! I think these offal piles are trying to surrender!
Senior police dude: Should we accept? I mean, the options are supposed to be "accept surrender" OR "kill them anyway", but we're not having a lot of success with the second one.
Commander: Cease fire! Let's assess the situation... I think we've hit diminishing returns on the damage levels anyway...
Security intel guy: Maybe we could scrape one up and take it with us for interrogation later...?
Alph: N-no! We should totally leave them both here... and set fire to them!
Commander: I think that's the first sensible thing you've said! You three, break out the stock of emergency incendiaries and rig them up with a ninety second timer. You five, stand guard until they're set. Everyone else to the emergency exit tunnels!
Sooooo, it looks like it's hypothesis B: Groolars can fix people up so they can keep going even after sustaining horrific levels of damage (and possibly remain alive long after they've been damaged beyond the point of immobility). Those two Groolars might be spending some time scattered across the floor, reflecting on how Kobolt does not take kindly to failure.
As for the fleeing Conner, he probably wants a stiff drink! But even if he can still enjoy the effects of alcohol...
Conner: *reaches for hip flask* *stares at bullet holes in hip flask* Shit... *runs to nearest liquor shop* *loots bottle of vodka* *drinks*
Vodka: *pours out of holes in his abdomen*
Conner: Shit! *runs to hardware shop* *loots roll of duct tape* *tapes up holes* *drinks*
Vodka: *leaks out of holes* *unsticks duct tape*
Conner: Shit!! *loots heavy-duty automatic sealant gun* *loots extra-large cartridge of fast-setting sealant* *loads gun* *starts sealing up bullet holes* *accidentally switches gun into overdrive* *pumps himself full of sealant*
Sealant: *fills his abdomen, intestines and stomach* *sets solid*
Kobolt: *taps Conner on shoulder* *ahem!* *holds out hand* Where are the sphere shards? The sphere shippers? Alph Colla Borsoi Weller? Your squad? Well???
Conner: Errrrr... shit.
Kobolt: *loots heavy-duty automatic nail gun* *loots and loads band of 50 nine-inch nails* *picks up Conner* *pins him against the wall* *nails him to the wall, using most of the nails* *loots spray paint* *spray paints "FAILURE" across him* Hmmmm... *loots "EARTH CONNECTOR - DO NOT REMOVE" tag* *tears the "EARTH CONNECTOR" part off* *nails tag to Conner's forehead* *death glare* I am VERY disappointed. *stalks off*
Lol oh dear I laughed so hard at this I was almost crying xD
Poor poor poor Conner indeed.. he could waited a little longer and those holes would have healed by themselves. but well, he didn't have that much time.. .....just too bad that sealant didn't leave any space for that vodka ;D
