    1) I want to apologize for having closed down my SR tabs ‘for a day or two’ most of two weeks ago, and so having taken a rather long unannounced break. It was only after I disconnected from a bunch of things that I realized how burned out I’d become, and I just couldn’t will myself to re-engage with everything for a while.
    2) That said, I’m feeling loads more myself, able to sit down and focus on one thing for a while. So I’m good to carry on with this — or if the stop-start-stop has killed things for people we could do an accelerated wrap up.
    3) Belatedly sending my hopes that the various holidays in the last month have treated you all well, and that everyone has benefited from a bit of a break.

    @Electric_Muppet I’ll wrap my head around where things were this weekend and re-post where we are on init, and also post key stats/abilities for the various thingies so that you all can roll their defense/soak tests as appropriate.

    Lily got 9 hits on a bat, assuming only normal reac+int def 14d <b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>3 [14d6t5=5, 3, 3, 4, 1, 2, 4, 2, 2, 4, 3, 6, 5, 1]

    Bod 6 vs 8S(e), -5AP… so I think that’s 10 armour , -5 with 2 auto hits so 11d <b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>4 [11d6t5=6, 2, 5, 1, 5, 4, 3, 6, 2, 3, 4]

    errr… dead bat?!?

    Edit, forgot auto hits… so it takes 8 damage…

    OK, I finally read Obi’s notes and noticed the ‘join group’ button, so I can post here again 🙂


    Batshit up next in terms of actions.

    And while the strategic issue of dealing with enough foes to wear you down sounded interesting, I’m realizing that it is a ridiculous amount of dice rolling which is even more annoying online than in person. After this pass wraps up I’m going to steal the grunt groups rules from SR6 (which honestly probably makes it easier on the player-characters). Or else come up with some way to wrap up the fight without having to knock out another 10 or so spirits.

    We could go entirely ‘cinematic’ and ditch the D… promise not to make it too easy on ourselves… these would appear to be minor horrors after all!?!

    Could do, SR is really more the story than the rolls. Bronwean is more myth than math. Like it says on the toilet door, I’m easy.

    Yeah, or we could proceed with buying hits to solve this quickly (at least for the enemies)

    I’m good with either narrating or buying hits. I’ll post something in the IC but avoid any rolling 😀

    OK, I guess I just IC changed the Mantic-Bats fear from touch to ranged. It just seemed cooler and made more sense to me. They are rolling 11 dice.

    [url=]fear on Batshit[/url]: 11d6t5 3

    [url=]fear on Kynos[/url]: 11d6t5 1

    [url=]fear on Lilly[/url]: 11d6t5 6

    Fear is resisted by logic+willpower. It is a spirit attack, a fear attack, and a sound attack, so appropriate modifiers all apply.

    ETA: sorry for the roll on Lilly!

    Kynos is immune to fear (burned out emotion) – fittin enough with that roll 😀

    Lily isn’t! My roll was as bad as yours was good! 4 hits on 18d with exploding 6s :-/

    Ah well… will try and get an IC up tomorrow, sorry, run out of time now.
