  1. Servant of Dante

    Of Great and Terrible Things

    ((Acrobatics: 45 Ag +30 Acrobatics +0 Difficulty = 75, Roll (in Discord): 66 for 1DoS)) Estelia vaults back over the equipment the way she had just come, moving back toward Lax. As she moved she almost tripped over a loose cable snaking across the floor. Maybe her nerves were getting to her. She muttered a prayer, "Holy Emperor see your servant, guide my strike to the heart of your enemy," the first thing that came to mind. Perhaps not the most fitting since the sactionaries were loyal Imperial servants themselves. As she rounded the last corner, the Novice raised one of her pistols and took a shot on the run at the sanctionary that Lax had just targeted, thumbing the power setting to Overload ((assuming I'm close enough to fire at the end of my movement. If not I'll remove this bit but I just want to get it rolled in case)) ((Standard Attack (as a Free Action from Move and Shoot): 50 BS (+ cover or other applicable situational modifiers) Roll (In Discord): 89 for 4 DoF 4 ammunition used, marked on character sheet)) The shot flies wide, and Estelia tenses, realizing she has just revealed her position, when it might have been better to wait. The pistol sits disconcertingly hot in her hand, but fortunately it's rugged design seems not to have succumbed to any malfunction.

    Estelia makes says something under her breath that she probably wouldn't want a Sister Superior to hear before nodding to Ariel, "We're coming back to you, Lax." The Novice Turns on her heel and moves back the way she came, hoping to get the drop on the Sanctionaries as they engaged Lax ((Does my previous Stealth roll still apply? Should I roll another Acrobatics?))

    ((Yeah for Awareness I was thinking Estelia was watching for the guards)) ((Acrobatics: 45 Ag +30 Acrobatics -10 Difficulty = 65, Roll (in Discord): 57 for 1DoS, Fate Point re-roll: 31 for 4 DoS)) Estelia weaves between the machines, back toward the hatch they entered through. Her heart raced as she heard the sanctionaries talking to eachother while they searched for them. She hadn’t thought they would actually get away without being noticed but it looked for the moment like she might make it with how well she was moving through the cogitator stacks. It was kind of exciting. Hopefully Ariel and Lax we’re making good time too . . .

    Estelia nods, though she realizes the others probably still can't see her. She follows behind, about 30 or so feet, trying to remain hidden (running from bit of cover to bit of cover in the stacks of machines) ((Stealth: 45 Ag +10 Stealth =55 (plus DC modifier) Roll: 23 4 DoS base)) ((Awareness: 20 Per +0 Awareness (Known) =20 (plus DC modifier) Roll: 15 1 DoS base))

    ((I don’t really have anything to add until either the servitor shows up or Lax finishes with the cogitator, same as before. Estelia is still nervous and waiting, same as before))

    Estelia keeps herself in hiding and watching the door for any movement, the lack of anything happening starting to fray her nerves, "come on, come on, if you're going to get here, do it already," she mumbles, tensing and relaxing her hands around the grips of her pistols. ((just waiting for Lax to finish what he's doing or for the servitor or sanctionaries to show up))

    Estelia mumbles, “why does it have to be on my word? It’s not my fault the guards want to make this difficult.”

    “We should stay until we get what we came for, shouldn’t we? We came all this way . . .” Estelia moves back behind the pile of equipment she’s hiding in ((the Stealth roll was 5 DoS right?))

    After a moment of fumbling, Estelia gets the feed generator turned on and situates herself inside the room, somewhere hidden but with a line of fire to the door. And thinking of doors, she checks for other points of ingress she should be watching. ((So I was thinking of making a Stealth check to be hidden so they won’t notice me if someone comes in, and maybe an awareness if you think it’d be a good idea to look for other entrances, doors or otherwise))

    Estelia nods and follows lax ((Stealth: 45 Ag + 10 Trained + 30 Stummer = 85; Roll: 35 for 6 DoS)), keeping her weapons ready. She can feel her heartbeat in her chest, the import of what they were doing finally sinking in.

    Estelia moved after Ariel, quietly, hoping she could remain unseen if the other Novice was spotted ((Stealth: 45 Ag +10 Trained +20 Difficulty = 75; Roll: 36 for 4 DoS)). She drew her laspistols, of course, but didn't move in the by-the-numbers way Ariel did, blending with the shadows required a bit more improvisation that that, plus it was more fun. The hand signal Lax made reminded her vaguely of something from the hand signs they had been taught (somewhat) before they left Ophelia, but as she looked at where the man was pointing she forgot all of that. It was a bit anticlimactic, just some wires and another manhole cover, but then again they weren't exactly using the front door. At the armsman's request, Estelia covered the opening as he attempted to get it open.

    ((So Ariel will move up first, Estelia following with Stealth if possible, then Lax in the back. Once inside we will try to get to the control room (or whatever it was on the plans that we thought would be where we can view the information we need) without being seen, and back out that way too. If we’re seen the idea would be to subdue/Kill them before they can sound an alarm, I suppose)) ((does that sound good?))

    Estelia thought it smelled pleanty, though she wanted to not make too much noise, just in case. She whispers, “We should try to be quiet, in case someone is watching.” The dim illumination reminded Estelia of (what she thought) a mine would look like, and the thought of the city streets above her was somewhat novel. Of course, there were streets below her too, and service paths like this above the streets she walked below, she was simply between layers of the hive. The faint whirring and clicking . . . and other more wet sounds could be heard coming from hidden machinery and . . . other things the Novice would rather not think about. Although the machines and growing things meant little to her, Estelia gave at least a passing glance to those items Ariel stopped to examine. One item that struck the Novice as interesting was what she assumed was a terminal if some sort, at least it looked like a data entry board for a record keeping device like the Sisters Superior would use. Except, this one was covered in ancient-looking sealing cloth with faded words written over its surface ((think analogue computer keyboard wrapped in cloth)) and didn’t seem to be connected to anything but a mass of wires that disappeared into the walls. The corner of the wrap was cut open, it seemed to her to have been done at a later time, to reveal the key used to cancel an operation ((think Esc key)), and the stub of a red votive Candle was melted onto the keyboard beside the key. Estelia was momentarily tempted to press the key, to see what would happen, but thought better of it. As they neared their destination, Estelia devoted more of her attention to surveying their surroundings for threats. ((ive realized it makes more sense if Estelia is wearing some loose pants and a shirt over her bodysuit. Probably male clothes, I’m think like Pirates of the Caribbean aesthetic baggy brown pants and white shirt at the moment))

    Estelia simply wore her body glove, to avoid bearing any identifying marks. Regretfully, she concluded that her flintlock would also be inappropriate for this task. She bore her weapon belt as usual at the waist, and the compact autopistol’s concealed holster fit snugly (if not particularly comfortably) between her shoulder blades, about the only place both near the edge of the garment and not overly conspicuous. She carried her unmarked black flak helmet in her hand, hoping it would look like something a motorist might wear. Once they reached isolated spaces, she slid it over her head and attempted to lead the others quietly toward their target. ((Stealth -10: 45 Ag + 10 Stealth - 10 difficulty = 45. Roll: 40 for 1 DoS! Finally, a roll goes well ))
