The slightest movement causes you to start spinning. You lose all sense of up or down for a moment, the sense of down returning as you realize you are falling from a great height. Lighting strikes against the sky, the color is off but you hardly notice.
The beeping is getting worse, and you realize its coming from something attached to your chest. More accurately, the straps cross your chest and hold something to your back. The beeping is getting faster, and it looks like the ground is coming closer... For those for whom panic would start to set in, now is about when the screaming starts. Others might start slamming the beeping device. In tandem with the beeping, you see blinking lights. The sound and the flashing get faster and faster until...
A parachute deploys and you descent slows! You are still falling too fast to gain a controlled descent if you have anything resemble parachute training, and you realize you are above a canopy of trees. You hit the canopy, branches scraping and pulling until mercifully, it's over. The ground takes the wind from your lungs.
Those that made the Expertise check... are immediately reminded of Predators.
Which begs the question... what planet is this ?!?
In order of initiative, you are able to regain your feet, on your turn you can locate another on the list, or someone else not on the character list. (There are at least 5 others that fell from the sky with you.)
The DC of the Expertise check was 15, 20 for XDs with limited or no knowledge of 20th/ 21st century Earth movies. I find it hilarious that Lindsey did not make the check... (along with Amy, Sherlock and Kal'Annar...)
