    Of Great and Terrible Things

    ((Lax Acrobatics (31 base -20 Untrained -10 base for target of 01) Result 84 for 9 DoF. Santioncary Guard 1 Athletics (31 base -20 Untrained +0 base for target of 11) Result 87 for 8DoF. Sanctionary Guard 2 Athletics (31 base -20 Untrained +0 base for target of 11) Result 36 for 3DoF. ...comedy of errors here it seems.)) Estellia breaks through the jungle of wiring and cabinets first, and you note that you are incredibly close to the entrance to make it back in to the sewer area. In the background you can note the jogging of the Sanctionary guards trying to reach the back as well. A few moments later, but no worse for wear, you see Ariel break through as well seemingly having had a tougher time with navigating the mess. Tellingly though, you do not see Lax, you only hear a subvocal communication on both of your micro-beads, "I got tripped up and put in a dead-end, one of them broke off and is about to round the corner, do I engage them?" ((You'll have a post then the sanctionary will round the corner the post after that)) ___ We see that Lax has backed himself into a corner, and has his hand ready to draw the autopistol at his side with a confirmation. ((Also to note he's the one with the pad of information last I remembered.)) "You get to the back Rhaban, I'll get this Bile-fly!" the guard calls out that is about to round the corner. ((Lax's sanctionary will round the corner this coming post))

    [DH1] Questions from Tattered Fates

    I never stopped doing these, I had to slow my pace with other things in my life. I'd like to, but that is feasibly years down the line lol. Black Crusade is feasibly the last line I'd work through as I'm primarily focused on the Calixis Sector and immediately surrounding areas though.
  3. It's been a while since I posted one of these, but I am still continuing my readthrough of all my DH1 books. In turn I am still compiling questions and the ffg dev I had been speaking to is still willing to answer them. Tattered Fates: Is the Toughness Reduction of the Steel Clock, while it's invulnerable, permanent or temprorary noted in "Out of Time"? -------------- > I’d say the latter. Will a person with the blood of Haarlock take the termporary toughness reduction? ---------- > It doesn’t list any restrictions, so I’d say they are treated like anyone else. Is it the 9th or 10th hour that kicks in the possessed knife's effect? -------------- > 9th Is Heron Mask's Resistance (Psychic) supposed to be "(Psychic Powers)" or is it somehow expanded? ------------- > The former. Seems like either Vulpa's hand canon doesn't have enough pen or Grist's hand canon isn't doing enough damage based on their respective special ammo, opinions? ------------- > I’d use the profiles for those ammo types when firing the weapon with those ammo types. Bliss is stated to have "Secret Signs (Occult)" however, there is no skill in the rules known as Secret Signs. Replacement? ------------ > No, this is just to say they are able to make and understand clandestine/furtive/disguised markings of an occult nature that others can also pick up on. It’s more for the GM to use than anything else. Bliss also has Resistance (Psychic) as Heron Mask does, so same question as #4. ------------ > Same answer. Concerning Protean Form. Is it 20 wounds inflicted in a round not going past Toughness Bonus? 20 Wounds in a single attack in a round past Toughness? 20 Wounds overall past Toughness in a round? ----------------- > 20 wounds that the being would suffer. So the last one if I read it right. Concerning getting access to the Elite Campaign Package if you're a new character in a campaign, do you still need to spend XP to get access to the Package or are you automatically given access? ----------- > The latter. If you have to spend to get access what is the cost required for the Haarlock Legacy package? --------------- > N/A I've worked through Damned cities and am working on Dead Stars. About halfway through Dead Stars I'll send in some more questions from tattered fates and at the end of Dead Stars I'll send in my Damned Cities questions. Afterwards I'll work on Radical's Handbook.

    ((I'm assuming the Awareness is either to find good cover or to watch for the arrival of the Sanctionary guards. The guards aren't sneaking, and you're able to note where to go with that result as well. If I misinterpreted that then correct me and we'll resolve as necessary. Awareness for them to notice Estilia in hiding, normally it'd be +0, I'll make two rolls as there are two guards. +20 baseline for a target of 57. Result of 31 for a total of 3DoS, and Result of 98 for a total of 5DoF)) The guards each come around an opposite corner of the main relay station noting the servitor plonking to the station, but also scanning the area for the intruders, they take their turn to search for Lax & Estelia because they're running together, target 67 result 100 - Critical Failure.)) "Fenk me! Where are they?!" Rhaban yells out. "Throne take me if I know...this is getting scary." the new arrival adds. "Screw that! They can't have gone to the entrance, they...ugh! They have to be making their way to the back, it's the only other place, come on!" Rhaban calls wheeling back around the open path in the facility to try to beat the group. ((You two make me an Acrobatics -10 test next post to see how held up, if any amount, you get from weaving through the machinery on your way back to the underground entrance. I'll be opposing you with their Athletics +0 to try to leg it to the back area.)) Inellia nods accepting of the plan and allows Balthazar to leave on his personal task. As he departs follow the trio Inellia smiles to herself, "There might be something to make of him yet." *** ((I'll allow you to remain in shadow currently, they guards aren't expecting someone to have come in after the one already came in to the facility))

    As the repair servitor rounds the corner Lax looks up and then back down at the pad noticing it has completed its transference process, to which he quickly unplugs the device and moves away from the area motioning to the two of you to get out of the way as well. ((I made an awareness test to see if the Servitor discerns that you are not Sanctionary and therefore something to deal with, Servitor target 05. Servitor result 37, 4DoF.)) The servitor plonks forward seemingly no worse for ware or any wiser for seeing the trio, and makes movement to work to the main relay tower station. Lax makes a movement with his head, "We should go...now." _ ((I'll roll Awareness for them, normally it'd be -10 but they know there's something wrong with the alarm which I'll give as a +10, additionally now they will have +10 for assistance as I don't want to make two rolls. +20 baseline for a target of 67. Result 07 for 7DoS)) "Rhaban, wait...did you hear that?" the new arrival says. "Yeah, main station" you hear the distinct preparing of an auto-pistol, "Malfunction my ***..." The trio can hear the sounds of movement from both the areas that were being searched. ((Mechanically they'll be at the area next post, they're essentially using a 'full movement' to get there quickly. Depending on how the next post goes we may go in to combat over Discord.)) __ Tagging as the player has stated they're in a capacity to get back in to it, and have nearly finished reading past posts.

    "Just fine," he mumbles out loud as he works on the connection. He makes a few typing rituals on the keyboard and a small bar appears at the edge of the screen, "won't be long now." If you glance at the screen you can see he's correct, the machine spirit is apparently swift at sharing information with others, and the bar looks like it will finish before the next time you'd look at it. ((Mechanically next post it'll be done.)) ___ Next post for the servitor to arrive. The Sanctionary continues to search, now with the assistance of their compatriot. ((I'll roll Awareness for them, normally it'd be -10 but they know there's something wrong with the alarm which I'll give as a +10, additionally now they will have +10 for assistance as I don't want to make two rolls. +20 baseline for a target of 67. Result 83 for 3DoF)) Rhaban calls out, "Anything?" The new arrival is checking the other side of the perimeter, "No, nothing, you sure it's not a malfunction? Lug-head's making it's way over there..." "I'm...getting less sure myself, but we should make a full sweep. The comm issue has me worried, never done that before" Rhaban answers. Their companion takes a moment to respond likely thinking about it, "Yeah...that takes a special piece of tech as far as I know, but it's a relay station right?" __ Tagging as the player has stated they're in a capacity to get back in to it.

    ((I'm ruling 5 for baseline info Tech-Use Known +0, Combi-tool +30, Manual +10, act -10 normally I'd rule it +0 but things are rushed. Anyways Target 64, Roll 11 for 6DoS. Total 10 DoS, I was only going to rule that he'd need 10 DoS for extra information anyways)) Lax continues typing and pulling on a few component switches for the time, but in a few more moments he seems to come to a revelation with a "Ha!" out loud, to which he realizes his problem grabbing for his waist. "...I need a dataslate to put this information on to, there's a lot here." ((assuming one of you passes him the last it'll take a round to transfer the data, so we'll handle it next post)) ___ It'll take until after the next post for the servitor to make it's way to the area. The Sanctionary continues to search. ((I'll roll Awareness for them, normally it'd be -10 but they know there's something wrong with the alarm which I'll give as a +10. +20 baseline for a target of 57. Result 94 for 5DoF)) While they continue to work the perimeter they don't pick up anything out of the ordinary, "You're not getting out of here scum!...'wherever you are'" they mumble to themselves. Distinctly the entrance to the Relay Tower opens with a loud clang, "What's going on Rhaban? My bead's down." "Unwanted guests" Rhaban replies gaining a chuckle from their companion in the entrance. ---Back at the Villa--- ((We'll say narratively this happens with enough time previously for setup purposes)) Inellia request's Balthazar's presence shortly after the group have left for the evening. She requests he meet her in the kitchen area, and Balthazar finds her putting together a mug of herbal drink. "I'd like you to follow the trio's path, with a bit of distance, and assist them when they inevitably get themselves in to some trouble. No one's first...expedition like this goes off without a hitch, no matter how well you plan. Do you have any theories for aid you'd like to broach with me before setting off yourself?" She says while finish off with putting the holding fixture on the stove that is full of water and herbs to heat up.

    ((Alright, yeah I feel like the area is busy enough with other stuff that there's area within the range. base -10 +30 for Stummer = total +20)) "Thanks, they'll know they're blocked, but that won't help them actually get any help here for a bit", Lax begins to start quickly open one of the operating panels on the station and reads some descriptive inscriptions on scripture on the inside of the panel. "If you two want to pull out we'll pull out, make the call, but we came here to get information didn't you?", Lax gets to typing on the operating panel of the panel of the relay tower. ((I'm treating this as an extended test, Lax needs to get a certain amount of DoS for baseline info. I'm ruling 5 for baseline info If you want him to go farther we'll go farther for more info. Tech-Use Known +0, Combi-tool +30, Manual +10, act -10 normally I'd rule it +0 but things are rushed. Anyways Target 64, Roll 39 for 4DoS.)) "I'm getting somewhere at least, the machine spirit doesn't seem built for defense, we shouldn't need too much longer." ___ You can note that the servitor seems to be making its way closer to the group, but only in a very plodding manner, it will take time for it to make it's rounds to you ((a couple of posts)). You hear the guard on the other hand try to call to their companion, the guard inside of the station is female. She notes the static generator in effect and curses loudly, but you hear her making her way into the relay station to try and find the source of the disturbance. ((I'll roll Awareness for them, normally it'd be -10 but they know there's something wrong with the alarm which I'll give as a +10. +20 baseline for a target of 57. Result 72 for 3DoF)) They start searching the perimeter it seems to try and see if the targets are already leaving, so you've got a bit of time if the audio cues around you are anything to go by currently speaking.

    ((Alright, are you trying to hid within the field of the Stummer or are you going to move outside of that? Awareness will be relevant certainly, I just want how to figure difficulty for Stealth first.))
