    @Jack_Spade: minor quibble, Dr Featherstone is a cyber tech, Feather is Lilyโ€™s fixer… my fault for putting them next to each other on her sheet but I assume you mean Feather responded??

    Ah, I see. I thought Feather was a term of endearment with Featherstone.
    Because the cyber technician is actually the better choice in that matter thanks to the strong transhumanist ties of the Wayfarers

    Can I try a memory test to know who this guy is?
    What is that, logic + willpower?

    Oh yeah – just had to say the name – neither Al nor I will forget that association.

    Cool!

    In the CRB there is a submersible sled … doesn’t provide life support like a submarine does, so you still need diving gear, but it does provide transportation — presumably even for metal-inclined?

    Also sorry for no posts for ages. I’ve been reading, but was feeling super un-inspired about voicing Preston, so I slacked off some while things were quiet. I’ll make sure to re-engage with the IC thread.

    No worries man. Summer and then Christmas/New Year – posting slows down.

    Thinking spotting this thing in its charging station could be an opportunity.

    Hopefully taking advantage of its current dormancy, Al will approach using Sneaking – but hoping you’ll give a bonus for the fact that he can make most of the approach under water.

    Plan is to sneak up on the thing while it’s “sleeping” and stick a data tap on it, then disappear back out into the water.

    The Preston can maybe use that to get into the wider network, or at least whatever it’s connected to.
    Or at least get its navigation files, and of course be able to brick it more easily if it becomes a threat.

    Sneaking up on charging station: 12d6t5 4

    @Everyone – I know Aria’s off on holiday – Gilga? Beta? You guys still in this game? If life is keeping you busy, of course cool.
    Me, I’ll be off for Japan on Thursday morning – and that’s be me about 95% silent for two weeks.

    I’m off work this week, but not going anywhere (sigh). Despite Summer weather I should still get onto computer daily, and will try and move my part along over the next few days before Adam vanishes. Perhaps we can get to hacking tomorrow and I’ll throw up a pile of dice rolls.

    From the IC desription, didn’t sound like Al would have any trouble adding the plastique to the drone.

    But in case it is necessary, here is a Pickpocket test to do it without setting off any alarms.
    put bomb on drone: 13d6t5 5

    If the Light Fingers power works on drones, then it is also -5 dice on its opposing roll.
    (Rules not clear if it is a Mana or Physical effect – I suppose you could argue it either way.)

    Lost track of the days, let me know if we should be past the Saturday (I suspect we should with the flight, fixer negotiations etc) and I can amend my timestamp…

    -ASDF of deck is 5/4/1/1, has overclocker to boost one of them.
    -Logic 7 and +2 on logic linked skills from nanites. Intuition 6.,
    – Perceptive 1 on matrix perception
    – 2 program slots

    Initial start with Tool Box and Stealth running, ASDF=1/6/5/1
    Matrix Perception to learn about the drone:
    matrix percep: 13d6t5 4
    I forgot hot sim bonus: +2 hot sim: 2d6t5 1
    Total of 5 successes. Rating? Type?

    Then HotF:
    HotF: 17d6t5 3
    That was not great: re-roll fails: HotF -RRF: 14d6t5 2
    Total of 5 successes. Things branch at this point.

    If he doesn’t succeed he’ll re-boot and try again:
    if at first didn’t succeed: HotF: 17d6t5 6

    If/once he has succeeded:
    swap stealth for edit, ASD(edit)F=1/1/6(8)/4
    matrix perception on the instruction files (encryption, data bombs)
    mtarix percept in drone: 13d6t5 7 limits to 6

    Assuming clear, ‘edit’ file to read it, and then adjust it to not register anything as a danger (i.e. when it goes to patrol, follow its route, but don’t recognize anything as something to flag)
    edit: 17d6t5 9 limits to 8

    Sends an ARO to Al <<I may have neutered it. Can you mark it in some way so that we can recognize it in the future?>>

    I’ll let Jack respond to this before I assume all it well. Later today will carry on with going after the host.

    The drone is a Wolfspider of the same make as the one at St. Helens. It’s pilot rating is at a full 6 and it’s running an extra modded virtual machine carrier module for a full set of 5 programs: Smartsoft, Electronic Warfare 6, Targeting 6, Movement 6, Stealth 6.

    Defense: 12d6t5 7
    Yeah, the drone wakes up, detaches from it’s loading plate and beginns to search for the hacker, all the while a sensor test from anyone of you reveals that it uses modulated ultrasound “screams” (effective reach 50 m)

    Sorry everyone, 17 dice vs 12 goes that way sometimes, even with edge.

    Yikes, the stats on that drone sound pretty scary.

    I’m assuming Al would have spotted all that armor when putting the plastique on it.

    I’ll admit I was also assuming that an explosive charge intentionally placed on the things “underbelly” would pretty much get me an autokill (albeit an unhappily noisy one)….but if you disagree I can specify the size of the charge and add a demolitions test (for the ‘placed charge’ bonuses) to the Pickpocket roll I made earlier.

    Just let me know whatever you need.

    No need to fuss, Al can buy enough hits to place the explosives and completely destroy the drone.
    But as you say, that won’t be silent.
    So far only this one drone is aware of you. An explosion would wake up and he whole island.

    Now would be the time for Becky and her bow…
