The darts appear to be coming from randomly spaced holes in the wall at various heights and angles.
The wire is not taut, having slackened when the catwalk collapsed. It's on the floor, however, if anyone wanted to retrieve it for any reason.
With a twisted groan the catwalk collapses, and Haruko and Hidoi find themselves buried under the twisted mass of metal. Trap doors open beneath them and they disapppear into the catacombs beneath Ninja Burger headquarters. [OOC] For the moment, at least, since they haven't chimed in. If they come back, we'll bring them back in.[/OOC]
Toru easily rappels down the rope and lands on the platform just as it vanishes. However, the platform isn't that high above the floor, and as it disappears, he easily and daintily lands on the floor of the warehouse. Kitaro barely has time to tie off one end of the rope to the door handle before the platform collapses. There's no time to put on climbing claws, but his roll is good enough to grab hold of the rope and not fall into the mass of twisted metal. Bozuko turns on the ninja skills and easily rides the catwalk all the way down, rolling off and to his feet. The nearby floor contains several handfuls of rivets from the catwalk, all of which were apparently helpfully pre-loosened, as well as the aforementioned wire, which is still connected to the far wall.
This puts three ninja on the ground near the catwalk. The other two "survivors" are in motion.
Morboko continues to run through the blizzard of darts, and with a decent roll and some sultry moves she manages to make it halfway across without getting hit (except, of course, for several convenient slices across her ninja uniform, allowing her skin to show through. She realizes (Good [+2] Customer Service) that the darts are tipped with something green and acrid - Wasabi!
Up above, Skipito pauses in his swinging to take a look at the lights. They are not, in fact, on, which (now that he looks closer) makes the slight brightness from the next row somewhat odd. There's a gentle ambient glow about them, and a sort of dim hum that makes the hair on the back of his neck stand up. Dispatch chimes in with the obvious: "Those things are electrified! You'd better not try to swing past them."
