    Chemdat responded to Karr's attack and threat by taking a pot shot at the ex inquisitor. Gunnery potshot at Matthis: 3eA+2eC+2eD 0 successes, 2 threat It came close enough to hitting that Matthis got showered with debris. Chemdat let out a Ysannan curse at his bad luck out of frustration.

    I'll roll again Gunnery potshot at Matthis: 3eA+2eC+2eD 0 successes, 2 threat Still close enough to make him flinch... it ok if Chemdat takes 2 strain for the threat?

    Not that I'm expecting it to hit (dice pools staistics being what they are) but Chemdat would be take a pot shot at Matthis Karr in response to him throw the object at the shuttle.... so assuming it's a silhouette 4 shuttle Gunnery potshot at Matthis: 3eA+4eD 0 successes It's close enough to make Matthis flinch, I wasn't expecting it to be that close Btw Elias and Matthis never met, so I don't think Matthis would recognize Elias' voice, and Korath has had a large number of Apprentices over the years 2 or 3 males and at least 2 females prior to this campaign that I'm aware of

    Elias was first up the ramp with saber in hand and quickly glanced Vigilance for casual observation: 3eA+2eP 4 successes, 3 advantage in the passenger compartment to check for occupants before sliding into the pilot's seat in the cockpit. he quickly familiarized himself with the controls, and started an abbreviated preflight warm up sequence. As the others boarded Elias had called out, Akua please check the passenger compartment to make sure nobody's hiding back there and don't forget the fresher, chemdat man the guns if the guy with the saber starts heading in our direction fire with everything at your disposal otherwise don't attract attention, and Excal'ur can you start using this navicomputer to have some out of system nearby deep space coordinates ready as soon we clear the gravity well, basically just away from anything we could crash into we'll calculate a second set of coordinates once we have some breathing room? Moments later Excal'ur slapped the landing ramp control panel sealing the hatch and scrambled for the copilot seat as Elias pulled back on the yoke while shoving the throttle forward. As the ship rocketed skyward in the direction opposite the big cap ship in orbit, Elias opened the comm while also raising the shields, over the open channel he broadcast the following message Elias: Greetings Matthis Karr, thank you for donating your shuttle to help us escape. I'm sure you realize that we could have easily killed you just now using this ship's guns, however, we chose to spare your life because needless killing is not the jedi way. In return I ask you to spare the lives of the 2 scout troopers that I telekinetically puppeted to send you on wild mynock chase as a diversion. As evidence that those 2 troopers are not willing participants in our escape, and as you will undoubtedly hear from another 2 scout troopers walking back from the crash site of the star fighter where I ambushed them using their own speeder bikes as weapons, there are 4 of us, and we are all aboard this shuttle, will the rest of you sound off without giving your names so Karr can hear 3 voices besides mine? Chemdat: yo @Rabobankrider what's the difficulty and modifiers for the there's 4 of us deception check (to throw them off of Teeto's trail assuming he survived?) ... Elias: My apologies for accidentally killing 4 of the 6 scout troopers I ambushed at the crash site, my intent was to take them all down before any could report they were under attack so we could use their uniforms as a disguise. I was expecting there would be some serious injuries but I didn't think there would be that many if any casualties. You might want try being quite a bit less over the top with your villainy, the problem with being the opposite of subtle is it's easy to see you coming from lightyears away and that makes you easy to avoid, but I don't expect you to fall for the same set of tricks again because Korath Lorren always spoke highly of your capabilities, so maybe we'll cross sabers next time. Oh and Korath sends his regards, I'll tell him we crossed paths the next time I see him. See you around Matthis. Elias turned off the Mike so the enemy couldn't hear anymore of what was said on board the shuttle, and check the scanners for incoming fighters....

    Only 8 boost were being passed, 1 was the boost you prescribed. But I do see your point... I would be willing to voluntarily limit in the future or even for this roll onward what is the maximum number of boosts we can pass without "gaming the system"? Does 5 seem like a fair number?
  7. Weapon banks don't require weapons to be linked, they permit them to be linked (either up to linked 3 or up to sil, I forget which)
  8. How close did you get with the hull trauma and strain?

    @player3333902 Could you roll 1eA+2eP+9eB+3eD+1eS for a stealth check to get aboard the shuttle? Elias has 4 green for agility which I believe makes him the best pilot in the group, besides I'm going to want to use the ships comlink after we're airborne to reduce the danger to the 2 scout troopers Elias puppeted to see if I can shave a point of conflict or 2 off my total and also reduce the risk to Teeto should @CathyKitten decide to rejoin the game. The verbiage/monologue over the comm will go something like this Elias: Greetings Matthis Karr, thank you for donating your shuttle to help us escape. I'm sure you realize that we could have easily killed you just now using this ship's guns, however, we chose to spare your life because needless killing is not the jedi way.

    Elias was prepared to flank Matthis Karr from behind if it came that as a last resort, but his first course of action was a diversion... without breaking his stride or gesturing, Elias telekinetically puppeted 2 scout troopers who as a pair were a bit distant from the rest of the first order troops, one of the troopers swiped his hand in the direction of Karr appearing to use the Force to throw a roughly human sized chunk of debris at Karr that Elias also telekinetically hurled, whether it connected or not was immaterial it just had to come close enough to make Karr dodge or at least flinch, then the 2 scout troopers turned and appeared to one after the other each make 2 force enhanced leaps, finally landing gently next to the parked speeder bikes and behind cover from all first order troops within Elias' field of view. In the ensuing chaos Elias and Chemdat snuck aboard the shuttle with the other 2 jedi following them.

    I'm going to have a pair of troopers jump, because Karr used the plural "yourselves" which Elias knows is 2 or 3 and he's hoping for 2 because he only has 2 ranks of magnitude so 2 is all he can do without spending darkside pips. Will that effect the conflict and difficulty of the stealth check, since Karr may think *both* of force sensitives he sensed bolted. Also part of the deception was throwing an object at Karr, it will be a sil 1 object which has no chance of killing him, and in case things don't go well having a few wounds chipped off him wouldn't hurt. Here's the deception check using sense emotions for the boost. Deception: 2eA+2eD+1eB 1 success, 1 threat Here's chemdat's stealth roll using the 5 leftover advantage from excal'ur's roll and passing 4 to Akua's stealth. Stealth: 3eA+6eB+1eS+3eD 2 successes, 4 advantage And here's Elias' stealth check Stealth: 3eD+1eS+3eA+3eB 1 success, 4 advantage So Akua's roll will have 8 boosts

    The chances of excal'ur beating Karr at another opposed discipline check (i.e. vs. the sense roll you had us make indicated karr has 5 willpower and 2 ranks of discipline) again are slim to none, so that's out. Not looking to take more conflict at the moment... what would the conflict be if I also used move to have the trooper "force leap" over/behind a building to safety/cover, and how many pips would I need? This should be enough for the basic, a magnitude, a strength, and 2 range so that could get the trooper out to extreme range, Elias would make it look like 2 force leaps in rapid succession if needed but the point would be to put him down gently by the speeder bikes so he could race away after he knows he's been framed as as force user who attacked Karr. Use the Force: 4eF 5 Light Side, 1 Dark Side So could you give me a difficulty and tell me what if any conflict I would incur by having him "force jump" to safety afterwards?

    @Rabobankrider Here's initiative for Chemdat Vigilance: 3eA 3 successes, 2 advantage And Elias Vigilance: 3eA+2eP+3eB 3 successes, 6 advantage in case it becomes necessary. Man that was a crap roll for Elias.

    Observation: regardless of the in game reasonableness of what you just said, suggesting that the gm apply penalties to another PC doing something you don't want him to do always seems a LOT like a passive aggressive way of trying to exert control over the other player's character.

    You couldn't tell it by looking at him, or so he hoped, because the only emotions chemdat ever wore on his proverbial sleeve were annoyance, frustration, anger, and determination, but that chill of the grave feeling had set him on edge. He might have bolted for the speeders if Elias hadn't been confidently leading them forward. He almost sped up to match when Elias got a few steps ahead but stopped himself, Elias had a plan he always had a plan, and a bunch of contingencies to back it up, and Chemdat knew his older brother wouldn't leave him behind. If Elias wanted a little distance between them it meant... what come on... Elias was going to flank the man in black from behind in case he reacted when Chemdat passed him... Elias had figured out that the man had sensed him previously... and for that to work meant Elias knew that the man hadn't sensed Elias. so to help Elias pull this off with maximum effectiveness Chemdat had to slow down just enough for Elias to be completely behind the man and out of his peripheral vision, and Chemdat had to be ready to be a good distraction if the man reacted when chemdat passed him. And nothing attracted attention like a lightsaber. Chemdat had followed Elias' example earlier and stowed his saber at a place in the scout trooper pack where it was hidden from view but easy to retrieve. Chemdat didn't have confidence in his own ability to get out of this mess but he knew his brother could and would. As... was it Akua... moved to match Elias' pace Chemdat discreetly bumped elbows with her and gave a slight shake of his head and patted the pack pocket holding his saber to try to nonverbally communicate to her that there was a combat plan that involved Elias being a few steps ahead.
