JeffG has connected.
Jshock-GM: I was this close…
JeffG: Hm?
Jshock-GM: UPS tried to deliver my books yesterday; I redirected them to work last night, was all pumped that I might have them in hand tonight, no dice.
Mathus: Ah, ouch.
Mathus: That reminds me, I should pick them up myself.
Mathus: Hmmm… the game store’s 5 min away. Tempted to go check it out.
Jshock-GM: Xie’s about to jump on; Tim will be right behind him
Mathus: And Tyg?
Xie has connected.
Jshock-GM: Beats me; he usually just appears
Xie: Greetings!
Mathus: Urgh, just called them; they have 2 in stock.
Jshock-GM: How much?
Xie: So I’ve got a bit of work I still need to get done before tomorrow, so I’ll be half paying attention :P
Mathus: $60
Tygaran has connected.
Jshock-GM: Mr. Knight is online, but not responding…
Vale: Vale takes 0 wounds.
Vale is healed and gains back 22 strain.
Xie: Yeah I pinged him too but no response
Mathus: Mathus takes 0 wounds.
Mathus is healed and gains back 23 strain.
Jshock-GM: Call it 8:45, then we’ll get started
Xie: OK
Jshock-GM: I have to forego the usual recap though; I didn’t have time
Xie: It’s OK
Xie: I think we all remember how profoundly poorly we did last session XD
Xie: And how because we failed, we now have to murder a bunch of innocent drones
Jshock-GM: You could stun them.
  • Jaana Raeth sets for stun…

  • Mathus has an idea.








  • Jshock-GM:

    Oh, I grokked something while
    listening to Order 66; in the beta/core, stimpacks get
    progressively worse at healing the more you use them







    Mathus: Yep. The more you use them per day, the fewer HP they restore.
    Xie: Interesting
    Xie: That’s good
    Xie: So you can’t just have a cartload of healing potions like in D&D 3/3.5 :P
    Jshock-GM: Emergency repair kits were changed, apparently; heals droids for 3, but that’s static
    Jaana Raeth: so.. we at +30 xp or +40? I think I’ve only spent 30 so far, but not sure =/
    Jshock-GM: I have to tally that, honestly… was going to give you guys another 10 before you hit Teemo’s palace
    Xie: That would be a good time for me to spend some XP :P
    Xie: I keep putting it off
    Xie: Can’t decide what to put it into XD
    Jshock-GM: I just looked at the Drookinator; he’s way behind
    Xie: lol
    Xie: Has he leveled up at all? :P
    Jshock-GM: He bought a couple of talents
    Jshock-GM: Whatever, it’s not on me to force him to spend
    Xie: He’s doing just fine as he is, not lacking in the beating on things department
    Jshock-GM: Yyyeah.
    Xie: And doing arguably better at negotiation et al than certain cough other party members *cough cough*
    Jaana Raeth: (( hrmp..none of my combat skills are career… which means it lokos like 15 xp it increase my primary attack up to rank 2 if I’m readingi things right ))
    Jaana Raeth: btw… you get your grubby hands on the REAL book yet? :D
    Jshock-GM: Mine’s coming in tomorrow… would have it in hand, but SNAFU
    Xie: Oh BTW JShock what was that online board-game program you once mentioned? I really want to play some Game of Thrones with Tim :P
    Jshock-GM: Vassal?
    Xie: Been playing some with workmates, it’s a lot of fun
    Xie: That could be it
    Jshock-GM: Let me know if you need someone to play; I’ve never played it
    Xie: It’s so good
    Xie: FFG, so… obviously :P
    Jshock-GM: Anyway, we should probably start
    Jshock-GM: Once again, I shall roll for the walking carpet.
    Xie: Yeah dunno what happened to Fox, it’s possible he slept in :P
    Jshock-GM: He always keep his comp on though?
    Xie: Possibly?

    Xie: OH I see. You have a better chance of rolling 2 LS than 2 DS
    Xie: And Mathus STILL managed it :P
    Jshock-GM: right
    Jshock-GM: DSP are more likely, but LSP are more likely to come up 2s
    Jshock-GM: Someone want to roll for Vale?

    Xie: Thx Tyg, for saving the day on Vale’s behalf :P
    Jshock-GM: OK. Quick synopsis:
    Jshock-GM: • Negotiations with Dimmock did not go so well. He basically agreed not to get in your way if you try to sneak on the freighter bound for Mos Shuuta… but he’s not going to help, either.
    Jshock-GM: • Ota has made contact with the freighter captains. They will wait until sundown (which is closing in).
    Jshock-GM: • The gantry is currently guarded by no less than 5 guards. They have not seen you approach 9as far as you can tell).
    Jshock-GM: Aaaaand… go.
    Mathus: And there’s no other way onto the freighter other than past those guards? Can’t sneak around from the back?
    Jshock-GM: WYSIWYG; there is no real ‘back’
    Jaana Raeth: "Well… Let’s just stun-ambush them."
    Xie: What’s the go with these supports? Would it be suicide to try crossing them?
    • Jaana Raeth readies her rifle








    Jshock-GM:

    That’s possible; they’re like 2 meters
    below you, but you could maybe climb down to them










    Xie:

    That’s even better!






    Mathus: How long of a drop if we fall off them?
    Xie: oops
    Jaana Raeth: (( if I have LOS and long range.. I’m good to aim and shoot … :D ))
    Xie: This is my proposed route _
    Jshock-GM: You’re incredibly high up. Falling would take several seconds before you hit the ground… hard.
    • Mathus would be… very hesitant to do
      that.


  • Taliq looks down and spits into the massive
    void…



  • Mathus: (( Hmm, could Mathus change the loading
    droids’ routines remotely? ))






    Taliq: "We go with Jaana’s plan…" she whispers
    Mathus: "Hang on… I might have a distraction."
    • Taliq readies her carbine, setting it to stun


    Jshock-GM: (( have to say no there, Mathus –
    not without plugging straight into them ))






    Jaana Raeth: "Hurry up…"
    Taliq: "No need. We got this."
    • Jaana Raeth stealths into position…





    Mathus: "Alright."
    • Mathus sets his heavy blaster to stun, and
      makes sure his shock gloves are on.



    Unknown command: "mwe tries to remember if perception actually opposes
    Stealth…". Try /help for a list of commands.





    Jaana Raeth: "Send in the wookie.. now THAT’s a distraction…" she mutters mostly to herself
    Jshock-GM: (( give me a sec – looking up their opposition to your Stealth ))
    Jshock-GM: (( we’ll assume their Perception - 2p ))
    Jshock-GM: (( Hold – Raising the stakes on that ))
    • Mathus is in back; does that give his
      Stealth a boost?









    Jshock-GM:

    1p1c

    Jshock-GM: (( not in this case, Mathus ))
    Jshock-GM: (( so, 3 Advantage ))
    Jaana Raeth: * while not as quiet as she might be, Jaana still gets the drop on a target * (I can use those adv to give my attack a boost, right?)
    Jshock-GM: Sure

    Taliq: Oh dear
    Geonosian guard 35:
    • Geonosian guard 35 looks up quickly as Jaana
      scrapes a boot
    Geonosian guard 35: "CHUUBA!!!"
    Jaana Raeth: (( any cover setback to worry about, or just my 2d from long range? (assumign long) ))
    Taliq: (( ROFL we’re so great ))
    Jshock-GM: (( Depends, Jaana… 35 is an open shot. Setback for others, if you can reach them. ))
    Jaana Raeth: wil be 35 them.. guessing init first tho

    Jshock-GM: As predicted. Everybody, then guards.
    Taliq: (( Haha suck it guards ))
    • Jaana Raeth is a little impatient and claims
      the first shot…



    Jshock-GM: (( can you guys see initiative? ))





    Jaana Raeth: not yet
    • Mathus feels it really doesn’t matter what
      order we go in… long as we all beat the guards.






    Taliq: No
    • Jaana Raeth got the drop on #35, even if he
      did spot her.. She quickly aims and fires…



    Taliq: (( yeah, I’d like Jaana to go first,
    since I’m just going to rush in ))






    Jaana Raeth: (one boost from adv, one boost from aim manuv… )
    Taliq: (( NICE! ))
    The Dark Side:
    DECREASE THE FORCE
    The Force:
    INCREASE THE FORCE
    Jshock-GM: (( adjusting for that spot ))
    Jaana Raeth: so 2p for long, then it becoems 1p1c, right?
    Mathus: (( Uh, can’t shoot stuns at Long. Setting it to Stun reduces the range to Medium. ))
    Jshock-GM: Long is 3p, actually. 1- short, 2 - med, 3 – long, 4- extreme
    Jshock-GM: Also true.
    Jaana Raeth: well, I have scope which makes long 2p… so what’s it end up then?
    Jshock-GM: Whoops, I’m totally wrong
    Jshock-GM: I’m also nuts and can’t read a chart to save my life.
    Jaana Raeth: :P
    Taliq: (( That’s what my doctor said ))
    Taliq: (( BOOM! ))
    Jshock-GM: So, yes, long is normally 3
    Jshock-GM: 2p for you
    Jaana Raeth: so… 2p1c after you upgrade?
    Jshock-GM: Upgrade? Wha?
    Jshock-GM: No, just 2p from me – I’m hoarding a sec
    Jaana Raeth: oh,. that force chagen was for the spot.. nvm
    Jaana Raeth: <!—input(“.|”+dbArgs+"|args|LABEL|SPAN=TRUE")—> makes a Stun guard 35 check!
                  
    Successes:  1  /  No Advantage or Threat
    Triumph: 1
    Xie says to the GMs: Not the best joke I’ve ever made :P
    Taliq: (( I like it ))
    Jshock-GM: Luckily, these guys are not minions…
    • Jaana Raeth Strikes true, knocking the
      drone’s weapon down the long drop as he falls over… (if that’’s valid
      for a triumph… unless there are othe rsuggestions)









    Jshock-GM:

    Oh, hmm… if youy want to do that
    instead of a crit? OK with me




    Taliq: (( It’s very cinematic ))


    Jaana Raeth: (( what do people think? ))








    Jshock-GM:

    He’ll drop his weapon over the edge,
    but he’s still alive










    Jshock-GM:

    Actually, better idea:






    Jaana Raeth: * knock HIM over and he’s dangling? :D
    Jshock-GM: He falls over the edge, lands on the support (prone
    Mathus: (( We’re not trying to kill him anyway; sending him falling off kind of defeats our purpose. ))
    Geonosian guard 35: Geonosian guard 35 falls prone!
    Jaana Raeth: anyway… that’s MY turn… let’s see what you guys’ve got :D
    Jshock-GM: Yeah, who’s next
    • Mathus cringes at just how close he came to
      taking the long fall.



    Mathus: (( Did he drop his weapon into the
    abyss? ))



    Taliq: (( How far will a double maneuver get
    me? ))









    Jshock-GM:

    Yes. What’s your damage now, Jaana?



    Taliq: (( I guess I’ll be charging at 59,
    unless Mathus wants to do it first ;)
    ))









    Jshock-GM:

    You could get to the start of the
    bridge – ish










    Jshock-GM:

    Straining to fire?



    Taliq: (( This start of the bridge? :P
    ))









    Jshock-GM:

    yeah



    Taliq: (( And yes, straining to fire at #59
    ))



    Taliq: (( Pew pew, he has cover I guess? ))








    Jshock-GM:

    Geonosian guard 35 is defeated!

    Taliq: (( Yeah, I’m still carrying both carbines ))
    Taliq: (( My old one and the new one I bought. I’m dual wielding them (jk) ))
    Jshock-GM: Yeah, take your strain back – you find trying to bring one to bear with the other flopping all over the place tricky
    Mathus: (( I don’t think you’re encumbered. ))
    Taliq: (( I only have brawn 2 ))
    Mathus: (( Carbines are only 3 encumbrance each; unless you’re carrying something else bulky, you’d still be below your encumbrance limit. ))
    Taliq: (( Flak armor? ))
    Mathus: (( If you’re wearing armor, you remove 3 from its encumbrance. ))
    Mathus: (( So anything short of stormtrooper laminate doesn’t add to your encumbrance if you’re wearing it. ))

    Jshock-GM: I’m not seeing anything about armor having reduced encumbrance
    Mathus: Gimme a moment, I know I saw it.
    Taliq: (( lol ))
    Taliq: (( Well whatever GM reckons… :P ))
    Mathus: It’s in the Final Week Beta Updates.
    Mathus: Add "Armor Characteristics (pg.113): However, armor is designed to be worn, and when worn its encumbrance value decreases. Reduce the encumbrance value of all armor by 3 when worn."
    Jshock-GM: I say that’s still a minimum 1
    Jshock-GM: so, you’re at the limit, Xie

    Jshock-GM: He’s in cover, at extreme range
    Jaana Raeth: so.. 2 starin for a manuerver into Long?
    Jshock-GM: I think so; 2 maneuvers to get into long range wiith him

    Jshock-GM: Oh, yeah
    Taliq: (( Yeah, and they’ll only get two shots, so hopefully they don’t do nearly as well as they did last time :P ))
    Jshock-GM: I’ll assume you can keep the gun in your hand to do that if you want to shoot
    Mathus: (( Yeah. Can I move up and get cover here? ))
    • Mathus sees Vrixxt as well, right?








    Jshock-GM:

    no – you alredy maneuved, so either
    strain for action or strain for maneuver




    Mathus: (( Yeah, if I strain, can I move up and
    get cover here? ))

    Taliq: (( Is that one maneuver to get there, and if so can I use a second to take cover behind the crate? ))
    Taliq: (( And if so, what range is 11 at now? ))
    Jshock-GM: I’ve been free & loose – taking cover can be part of the movement maneuver
    Mathus: (( So move, aim, fire? ))
    Jshock-GM: you’re basically moving from short to short, so it’s not like you’re getting something for nothing
    Jshock-GM: yeah, that’s fine
    Taliq: (( Alright. Two boosts then? ))
    Jshock-GM: Oh, no – 1 boost per roll. Though I said that
    Taliq: (( Oh, you can’t stack boosts? ))
    Jshock-GM: 1 boost per source, more accurately
    Jshock-GM: I’m sure there’s a talent somewhere that adds a boost
    Taliq: (( Right, so one for aiming, and one from the threat? ))
