Sounds like a great story – can’t wait to read it!May 8, 2018 at 5:25 am #8409
@mercy: I think the ball is in your court to hack the encryption on Pepper’s headware records… or I can gloss that and just give you the highlights??? 😁May 8, 2018 at 8:33 pm #8436
Please do.May 9, 2018 at 7:00 pm #8474May 10, 2018 at 7:50 am #8483
Ok, given you something to go on but deliberately stopped at this point in case any of you want some creative input at this point…just keep any threat external to this lab and Pepper et al don’t get time to explore much, want to leave some surprises when you lot get to the very same lab!May 14, 2018 at 7:30 am #8568
Did your van take damage? How many boxes? What is the vehicle again? I’ll do the repair rolls when I get home tonight.May 14, 2018 at 1:53 pm #8576
GMC Bulldog, took 8 damage, reducing it’s handling by two (could have been worse if I hadn’t upgraded the armor to 18)May 14, 2018 at 8:03 pm #8591
Coolness – but sorry – damn, already past one, and work tomorrow – and this seemed like the least urgent thing tonight…..will get into the books tomorrow and figure out rules for fixing your van!May 15, 2018 at 7:14 pm #8624
Okay I’ll IC going to fetch some parts. Cost will be 14,000. Al treats money pretty much like water, so unless Isaint offers to pay, he won’t say anything about it.
Only needed one hit on the last roll, so that third 4-hour interval is down to 1 hour for a total repair time of nine hours, plus going to fetch the parts, so Al just works all night.
No worries, he never can sleep much anyway. No Edge refresh overnight, but usually somehow miss the Insomnia roll anyway <shrug>May 15, 2018 at 9:11 pm #8626
@adamu Alyce would have wanted to volunteer to help Al. She knows nothing about fixing vehicles, but she can hand him tools and parts. She did it once before. She could also fetch beer and a snack or two. Nothing sexual, just a helping hand and a joke or three to keep morale up. If Al would allow her to do that, could you edit your post to include her?May 16, 2018 at 8:03 am #8627
It occurred to me when I wrote the post carrying through to the morning that you might have wanted an opportunity to do that.
But I thought of three things:
(1) IC-wise, you made it clear that Alyce was very tired:
>>I am looking at some of the data from Pepper. Still looking, but I am very tired and in danger of making a mistake. I am going to crash on a cot here in Pepper’s room. Comm me if necessary.<<
She has spent many nights on hospital cots and this one is as comfortable as any. Alyce is soon asleep.
and then we stopped you sleeping and did a lot of work setting up this new safehouse, and then the decon, and the cooking, assumed she must be way too exhausted to then stay up all night.
(2) OOC-wise, you would miss out on a chance to refresh Edge.
But of course those are your choices to make, not mine.
(3) From my perspective, was going for sort of a lonely, gloomy post, trying to give a nod to the fact that this boathouse was a place that Al was once horribly tortured.
But for now how about we split the difference?
I’ll edit in some stuff about Alyce being around for the first few hours, then falling asleep.
Let me know if we need to do more than that.May 16, 2018 at 2:20 pm #8637
I nearly forgot:
Isaint is doing his matrix search:
Loading Browse and the Ticker program to reduce Search Time to 25%
Int 7 + Skill 6 + Specialization (Search) 2 + Hotsim 2 + Bought Teamwork Hits from Agents 6
So six hours until he finds something. Afterwards he goes to sleep.May 18, 2018 at 12:18 pm #8707
Paper copies??? How quaint 🙂 Of course the 2 matrix crashes might have made record departments paranoid enough to file hardcopies but it seems unlikely to me… in the UK at least they don’t even keep paper copies now!!! let alone in 50 years time. That said you’ve got good rolls so why the hell not 😀 …but you are going to have to put some serious leverage on that wageslave to get access to those records, a sweet smile won’t stop them logging your request on the matrix, and who knows what spider is out there gathering that intel??May 19, 2018 at 6:47 am #8725
Eh, hacking is kind of boring without doing the social stuff. If you want it can just be an offline terminal with a seriously outdated computer 😀May 20, 2018 at 7:12 pm #8749
So, I miss quite a lot here, could someone keep me up to date with what happened since the group made it to the clinic?May 21, 2018 at 5:06 am #8750
Not really much: We got to the clinic, Rick and Isaint waited outside should any assassins appear while Al and Robyn saved Pepper’s life inside.
Once we were done with that we got the headware data and regrouped at a boat house known to Al to decontaminate, repair and research our next steps.May 22, 2018 at 2:36 pm #8783
Yep, yell if you need more input from me at this stage but can’t really IC from my phone 😏June 19, 2018 at 2:03 pm #9133
So, if we have a month break and used a week of it in the resort, we will still have about three weeks before needing to be in Seattle?June 19, 2018 at 2:13 pm #9134
Jepp, pretty much. I really need to update my character. Isaint is ready for another initiation…June 21, 2018 at 9:01 pm #9159
Not sure what happened to my first IC 169 post. I think I was beginning something and then left without finishing. So sad. I have just made the new post number 169.
