Okay, let’s figure out IC how we get to where we need to go first.
Is there some door we need to get open?
Or do we have to climb the exterior to the top?
I’d hate for the Orb to be heating up during the time we’re dealing with those Obstacles.
Once that is sorted, we can play with the Orb right before going in.
I can get 17 dice onto the test, but it would still be great if Ichante could do a Teamwork assist to get me an extra die.February 5, 2019 at 12:14 pm #15684TecumsehParticipantFebruary 5, 2019 at 12:20 pm #15686
Brilliant – thanks!
I’ll keep that in the can for when I make the Edged roll – holding off to the last possible moment.February 5, 2019 at 12:44 pm #15687
No door, just climbing 😉February 5, 2019 at 1:26 pm #15688
So 15 x 2m tiers.
Sounds like a lot of boosting and pulling and sweat.
We could maybe send a drone around to see if there are stairs….
Otherwise,.just hope we don’t get hit on the way up.
Definitely hold off on the Orb until we get close to the top.February 5, 2019 at 2:02 pm #15691
No stairs, just pull ups 😀February 5, 2019 at 3:17 pm #15693TecumsehParticipant
Becky is jacked. She can just throw us up each tier one at a time, à la Cannonball Special.February 5, 2019 at 3:24 pm #15694
Us. And the goat!
Yeah, she can give everyone the old stirrup-boost allowing them to scramble over the next lip.
Then we can pull up the goat and she can follow, I guess. Not much glamorous about it.
Too bad no levitate, but that would take dailling in the Orb too early.
Noir might have levitate, but no way we should accept her magicking us in here – just my two cents.February 6, 2019 at 3:29 pm #15712
The temperature check may have been a little bit D&Dish, but the way Jack spoke of the cold had me nervous.February 6, 2019 at 4:47 pm #15715
Well, D&D is a huge part of SR. And we are definitely headed into that sort of territory!
It was a good thing to check.February 6, 2019 at 5:32 pm #15719
Oof, that last post for Al. I love how it says so much both about what Al has been through, and about the situation they are in.
Anyway, Preston is probably looking at Al, all curious like, but I’m not going to put an IC post up just to say so. You can have Al tell more of his observations, or maybe best not to spook everyone else?February 6, 2019 at 5:52 pm #15720
Well, chat some more or not – Al is always happy to talk if asked, and sometimes not!
Or just get climbing.
Whatever folks are up for.February 7, 2019 at 12:38 am #15722GilgaParticipant
Sorry for being idle, really busy – is there BGC for us?February 7, 2019 at 2:45 am #15723
Yes, +7 within two m of the orb, worse outsideFebruary 7, 2019 at 3:09 am #15724
Glad to see you back. Hope all is well with you.
Just to catch you up regarding BGC – we’ve decided for Ichante to help Al with teamwork (already rolled), and Al will use Edge, to adjust the Orb. Hopefully well enough so that our magic is not totally useless.
We are just waiting to do it until the last possible minute, since using it too much is already starting to “overheat” it.
Once we get through most of the climb, we’ll try to get our BGC fixed.February 7, 2019 at 5:00 am #15725GilgaParticipant
I am okay, really. I am just too busy to post from work, and my health is less than ideal so I just fell asleep at 20:00 once I put the kids to sleep. Nothing to complain compared to the other stories and my problems should go away within a year according to the current diagnosis. Though I hope to feel better before that, I really miss the hours between say 20:00 and 24:00 😉
In the meanwhile, is there anything you want me to roll? Becky is very good at climbing and has the Gecko crawl spell in case some of the team are hopeless in climbing. She is limited in force (barehanded adept ability) so can only use the spell if the BGC is less than 3 or 4. (otherwise the BGC would kill the spell).February 7, 2019 at 7:41 am #15726
Dude – hope you feel better.
Yeah, some of us are having it worse, but that doesn’t mean our own problems are any less real to us.
We’re not going to use any magic without using the Orb, and we’re saving that for after we make the climb.
I don’t think we need any climbing rolls – the pyramid is 15 x 2-meter tiers of smooth stone. The plan is basically (1) super strong Becky gives all us short-ish people a boost up, then (2) we pull the skewered-goat and then Becky up, then (3) repeat 14 more times, adjusting the Orb as we approach the top.February 7, 2019 at 7:57 am #15727AriaParticipant
I think Jazz will leave her big drones at the base…they can always lob grenades to the top if we really need them… I suspect this isn’t going to involve blowing shit up anyway!!!February 7, 2019 at 11:16 am #15730
Gilga, sorry you are going through health issues 🙁 Take care of yourself, and let us know times when you might need to slow things down.
@Jack_Spade I didn’t want to IC getting farther up the pyramid until you had a chance to let us know if anything happens as we start getting onto the first tier. You know the plan, could you let us know how farther we can take things IC before we should wait for your response?
