Yeah, just because Al is in a huge rush doesn’t mean there’s any rush to post from me.
The seconds it might take Al to reach the team can be plenty of time to get some stuff done in SR action-time.January 8, 2019 at 6:12 pm #13707
We live in a complex of about 20 units. For better or worse we’re not the only one who is affected, so there’s a lot of collective effort to get the issue resolved. That spreads out the work so that it doesn’t fall all on me.
But it’s been confirmed that we won’t have any plumbing tonight so I’ll pack up the wife and kid and roll over to Council Island to crash with my parents. While inconvenient, we are not the first to go through such a thing, and we are better able to handle it than most.January 9, 2019 at 8:53 am #13726
I’m definitely holding off posting anything else IC until Tecumseh is back in action. Ichante has the call!January 9, 2019 at 10:08 am #13729
But Jack, what’s up with the knife digging action. Is it like she’s digging for something buried? Or like she’s trying to dig out space under herself to get free?January 9, 2019 at 10:25 am #13730
The latter, trying to free herselfJanuary 9, 2019 at 11:43 am #13733
I’m a bit confused about the magical signature being “above her”. Is there a vertical component that I’m missing or not understanding? It sounds like Noir is digging at the dirt.
Here’s a sucky visual Perception roll, which I’ll blame on the rain: Intuition 6 + Perception 6 + Visual Specialization 2 + Glasses 3: 17d6t5 3 hits
And here’s a sucky Assensing roll: Intuition 6 + Assensing 6: 12d6t5 2 hitsJanuary 9, 2019 at 3:42 pm #13741
(Totally irrelevant to what is going on in game currently) I finally banged together a coarse biography of Preston (in his Obsidian Portal character sheet). I’d kept thinking that at some point I’d write up something cool, but I finally settled for something.January 9, 2019 at 4:32 pm #13744
Is there any line of sight between Noir and the location where we found the vampires (or the crispy remains we were told was the vampire)?
Is it even possible that one of the vampires could have gotten this shot off (due to line of sight, angles, etc.) to cripple Noir while receiving a blast in return? Seems improbable.
Also seems improbable that Noir would have ended up battling vampires while outside given that her path/course took her inside first, where she would have logically confronted the vampires without ever needing to be outside.January 9, 2019 at 4:42 pm #13746
Well, she could have chased one out here, and honestly I don’t see a play where it is advantageous to have your body pinned and legs crushed so it seems doubtful that she’d have done that as a trap or the like.January 9, 2019 at 4:54 pm #13749
Well, the two bodies were inside: the unconscious vampire and the crispy critter.
If they’re inside, why is Noir outside? What sequence of events would lead Noir to run outside after starting the fight inside?
Then, if she is fighting outside, she’d have to be behind cover for a blast from inside to knock over the scrap onto her. If she’s behind cover, would she really have LOS to return fire?
In fact, now that I think about it, the crispy remains were in the safe room, which is downstairs, so there probably shouldn’t be LOS between Noir’s position and the remains inside.
So Ichante thinks that the sequence doesn’t make sense, but I’m asking Jack if there are IC elements that he hasn’t described which might explain it.January 9, 2019 at 4:57 pm #13750
A missunderstanding: There are Tony’s remains (the blue overall) which Argento tried to sell to you as his comrade and another charred body opposite of Noir.January 9, 2019 at 5:24 pm #13754
Ah, thanks for the clarification.January 9, 2019 at 5:34 pm #13757
I’ll let Preston do his hacking thing before going any further.January 10, 2019 at 6:38 am #13761
Jack, do we all see Noir or just the spirit?January 10, 2019 at 6:44 am #13762
Only Ichante and Preston went out to look for herJanuary 10, 2019 at 6:58 am #13764
Becky followed them after she released the drac.
Becky replies ”She is not my companion, we are just here for the linen – and as some of my colleagues insist of rescuing the humans you took as food. Just don’t be here when I return, I am not sure that I believe that you really have gone AWOL, and the fact that you can offer money tells a different story. I will not kill a valuable government asset unless that asset insists of being in the way. “ with that she joins Preston and Ichante on the outside.
bold is mine.January 10, 2019 at 7:55 am #13783
Al is going to do First Aid on Noir unless she or someone else physically stops him.
From memory, I think Terrible Conditions is a -3? And I’ll take the -2 for her being Awakened. If there are further penalties, they can come off the roll.
Will enable the wifi on the kit (and turn the thing off the moment I’m done).
First Aid on Noir: 15d6t5 6
So that should be four boxes of damage restored, and, in case any non-strictly-game-terms injuries are involved, want to make sure moving the scrap-cube doesn’t cause her further damage.January 10, 2019 at 7:58 am #13785
I think you are speeding it a bit too rapidly, though. You will get help from Becky:
So make it five boxes – but there is a legitimate reason why we are concerned and Noir hanging over there could be a trap – and Al would take some time to get there.
What is a scrap cube by the way?

Scrap cube (probably not the right term) is when they put a car in a compressor and it turns it into a nice neat block of metal (If I’m reading Jack’s description correctly).
Famous scene from Goldfinger, among other films.
Thanks for the help with the First Aid.
I appreciate it takes time to get there. But I have been watching all the conversation taking place versus a breakneck drive through, what, a hundred yards of scrapyard?
I think I waited unrealistically long, but that could well be my impatience, but he’s gonna get there at some point. And Ichante’s ‘any questions’ bit made me think Tecumseh was basically done.
Then I saw that Becky had already caught up on foot, figured I can’t be too far behind in a car.
If Jack feels it’s too early, I am cool with that – I can always edit my post to some internal monologue and just save the First Aid roll for later.
