Ichante has the Fashion spell. She could fit any armor to Batshit’s frame quite easily.May 31, 2019 at 7:06 am #19382
I’d be more comfortable getting the nod from tecumseh before I post anything to that effectJune 3, 2019 at 2:31 pm #19446
Well that was a poor post but I’m too tired /I’ll to figure anything betterJune 3, 2019 at 5:01 pm #19452
Ok, now on to the second level of abusing the 5e crafting system.
Ulrich uses Analyse Device on the focus with 8 drams of reagents to raise the limit:
The analyse device is sustained with focused concentration
Spirit is once again commanded to direct him in focus crafting:
Spending 6 reagents
Direct: 6d6t5 2June 4, 2019 at 3:23 am #19459
Caught up on the OOC thread. Still behind on the IC thread.
I gave Muppet the green light that Ichante is happy to do the Fashion bit.
Odds of Jack rolling 0 hits on 19 dice = 0.045%, or 1 chance in 2,217.
Applying “Analyze Device” to a rock seems like a bit of a stretch, but it mostly appears to be for overkill, especially since it’s not needed for the Limit.
Separately, I wonder if a psi practioner would accept a thought construct as a leader (and themselves as a subordinate) for the purposes of a Leadership test, especially if they think of the spirit/construct as an extension of their own self. A curious question for the philosophers. I’d compare it to Cartesian dualism, but in this case it’s less like mind-body dualism and more like mind-spirit dualism. Or something.
As long as Jack’s going nuts with artificing, maybe it’s time to initiate and start quickening Improved Attribute spells like it’s going out of style.
Alright, let’s see if Ichante gets owned by Fashion again:
Casting @ F6: Magic 7 + Spellcasting 6 + Specialization 2 + Mentor Spirit 2 + Power Focus 2: 19d6t5 7 hits, limited to 6 hits by Force
Armor resist: Armor resist: 9d6t5 0 hits, ha, suck it SWAT armor!
Soaking 5S drain: Willpower 6 + Intuition 6: 12d6t5 6 hits, no drain
Bronwean can have it look however she wants!June 4, 2019 at 3:44 am #19460
Good question, but if any tradition can bend their mind around that it’s psionics 😉
Also yes, this is me emptying my bag of tricks.
If you initiate you might want centering – the focus is mainly meant for IchanteJune 4, 2019 at 7:16 am #19461
So you can quicken analyze device on a power focus to get a whopping +9 to all magical stuff? Impressive!
Edit: Perhaps a more interesting use is to quicken analyze device on a fetish – so you do not need to spend karma to use it, and it works regardless of BGC. (unless the spell dies).

I could be wrong but I think I am waiting for you lot to put together some sort of ‘plan of attack’ for approaching the institute through the sewers? You can locate a number of Underground entrances nearby, some easier than others to access (ie the one from the railway tunnels is likely to be one of the harder options…)
Feel free to badger me with questions OoC!June 6, 2019 at 5:40 pm #19547
Technical question: How thick is the concrete wall down there and does it count as Reinforced or Hardened Material?
I should be able to set up the breaching post tomorrow.June 6, 2019 at 7:15 pm #19549
Without checking the exact wording in the rules I suspect reinforced rather than hardened and around 1m thickJune 7, 2019 at 11:40 am #19563
Cool, then it will take a few strikes to get through.
But first things first:
Popping a Psyche Pill
Increase Willpower: Increase Willpower F5: 16d6t5 4
Resist Drain: 17d6t5 6
No Drain – Sustained by Health Focus
Increase Intuition: Increase Intuition F7: 16d6t5 5
Resist Drain: 23d6t5 9
No Drain – Remove Sustaining Penalty with Focused Concern Power
To make this easier, I’ll buy hits on both sides
The Wall defends with 14 Body + 24 Armor -14 AP= 24 dice = 6 bought hits
and has 10×14= 140 Boxes
Ex Gladius does 14 DV + 4 bought net hits = 18 DV, so 12 DV per complex action
With a current Ini of 11 INT + 9 Rea + 8 Spell + 5d6(17) = 45 = 5 complex actions / 3 seconds
140/12 = ~12 Complex actions.
So in total it takes about 9 seconds to cut a 1m³ big chunk of wallJune 7, 2019 at 5:47 pm #19580
Hey all, looks like Jack’s done with his prep and has even done the rolls for cracking the cellar wall.
Anyone have any problem with jumping the story ahead to the break-in?June 7, 2019 at 6:38 pm #19587
I am OK with jumping ahead.June 7, 2019 at 7:18 pm #19590
You’re good to the point of breaking through, more than that will have to wait for next week now I’m afraid 😏June 8, 2019 at 3:49 am #19597
Alright, I didn’t post yet as I wanted to give Tecumseh a chance to catch up.
But I guess we are as ready as we are going to get.June 8, 2019 at 2:50 pm #19614
Batshit has a thing the night before she has a car buy, Al said he would go. I’m going to assume he is OK for me to put word in his mouthJune 8, 2019 at 3:17 pm #19615
What day / time is the actual break in going to happen please, so I get the time stamp right!?June 8, 2019 at 3:24 pm #19616
Ulrich got home Sunday evening to start crafting. He was finished Tuesday eveningJune 8, 2019 at 5:52 pm #19618
