Ok, SG is too flaky so we’ll move the thread here and hopefully get some continuity back! I will start us off with She HAL’s response to a vid link request with MonarchJuly 5, 2017 at 4:56 am #1109
No telling how much we lost this time…July 5, 2017 at 5:14 am #1110
Has SG been hacked again? Why would anyone bother? I’ve updated the IC now…July 5, 2017 at 5:31 am #1111
According to reddit, yes.July 5, 2017 at 8:20 am #1120
Guys, with SG access so heradic, and your posting spree equal to your reputation, I haven’t been able to follow since I gave Deckard to @jack_spade to control.
Could any one give me a little summary/run down of the story line and what we did since we entered the Aqualogy? What’s our situation? What do we have to do now?
Much appreciated!July 5, 2017 at 9:01 am #1121
Actually, not all that much: You got Improved Invisibility for free after I glitched on my reading test.
But from the start: Robyn decided to take the first Bathysphere instead of waiting for the drones to give us some info on what’s going on down there. This lead Silk and Al to join her, leaving Rick and Isaint waiting for the second sphere.
Down there they quickly noticed apathetic guards trying to collect people and forwarding them to processing. Once the team was together again (Robyn, Silk, Al hit in a storeroom, Isaint and Rick came invisible and concealed), the whole team turned invisible and went towards the objective.
One lucky assensing test by Isaint revealed that the guards are infected with nanites – CFD has found the Aquacology and we are in it for the whole ride.
Our stealth approach was revealed by nasty combat drones with Screech Rifles, but we managed to take them and their human guards out.
Following that we went through emergency tunnels that had manual controls.
We got contacted by She-HAL (Al coined that one for the creepy female AI voice) and learned that she has taken over the whole Aquacology and seems to be also after Monarch. We managed to keep a truce by not entering territory she declared off limits. Right now we are prepared for war with the AI – after we managed to convince her to let us try to speak to Monarch. Once we have secured that objective, we’ll try to save as many of the occupants from being turned into Monads/Head Cases.
For that we aim to find the main servers and sabotage them through the cooling system, taking out the local matrix infrastructure and weakening the AIs.
Rick has currently channeled an Air Elemental that gives him an Electricity Aura and therefore should prevent any nanites from entering his system.
should I have forgotten a detail, please feel free to add it. 😉July 10, 2017 at 1:47 pm #1258
Want to run an OoC questions answers thing or just plough on?July 10, 2017 at 2:02 pm #1260
Questions Isaint has for Monarch:
1) What happened really with Silk’s Mother? (Mission important question)
2) Who is She-HAL and why does she want his head?
3) What does he know about the CFD infection in the city
4) When did this all start
5) Is Winter behind this all (again)?July 11, 2017 at 3:33 am #1267
Think I will need to wait for your opening gambit before deciding how to respond… so someone chuck up an IC 😁July 19, 2017 at 7:28 am #1442
If you can make your opening approach to Monarch before Friday I might get an ooc response done which one of you can write up…?August 9, 2017 at 12:28 pm #1890
I am a very bad person.
After first berating people (way way back when in RL time) for not sticking to the subvocal, non-wireless system Al set up, I find that after the recent slow spell in posting I forgot about it and have been (per my punctuation anyway) having Al say things out loud.
Soooo….and another baddie by me who is always whining about edits…..I’ve gone back a few posts and switched the punctuation on some (not all) posts to indicate sticking with the subvocalizing (which I notice everyone but me has been adhering to).
Aria – if I’m too late and you were already planning on She-HAL exploiting my oversight – fair enough – I can put everything back or we can just say his subvocalizing is just not very subvocal through those tobacco-ravaged vocal cords.August 15, 2017 at 1:03 am #2097
Can any one enlight me on those Screech weapons. Did they shoot that at us before? Also what is Deckard still sustaining?August 15, 2017 at 2:41 am #2101
The drones we encountered in the reception area were sporting those. We didn’t give them a chance to fire ^^
And no, Deckard dropped them after we holed up in the infirmary.September 15, 2017 at 6:56 am #3052
Quick pause in the monologue in case someone wants to chip in…
You can all hear the conversation so no need for anyone to relay it…September 15, 2017 at 10:42 am #3060
Thank you for the update. Robyn will remain quiet.September 18, 2017 at 7:59 am #3272
A bit forced on the IC but it’s better than having a conversation with myself 😁September 29, 2017 at 7:22 pm #3883
Okay – I know all diceless and stuff, but hate to just say “Hey, I succeeded” about major tasks.
So Aria can read the dice and decide if the door really does slide open when Al cuts the last wire (personally, there is not a doubt in his mind, of course).
Juryrigging roll on door to submarine bay: 17d6t5 1
Obvious Edge re-roll moment:
Edge reroll: 16d6t5 4
So total five successes.October 1, 2017 at 12:12 am #3942
17 dice and only 1 hit? Some bad luck there. Perhaps you are standing too close to Robyn, who just seems to bring you bad luck.October 3, 2017 at 5:47 am #4060
Errr anyone recall if I said how many guards Monarch had? I usually make it vague but it would be nice to be consistent as you will be encountering them in person now…October 3, 2017 at 6:55 am #4061
Never mind, I confirmed it for myself as 5 guards… need to update my offline notes 😏
