Forgot this important infointitially, Pete's a stand-up guy not like Tentacle-Joe and some of the other jerks you guys know.

Thirsty Pete's response to Murdoc's concern:

Once he realizes that the Juicer is looking for more than a rough guess, Pete pulls out his datapad "Well, hold on a minute, I've always assumed I'd drop this from 5 miles up and never really figured the specs... Lessee..." Pete taps away at his device and then whistles, "Whooeee that's a spicy meatball! So the blast is gonna obliterate anything three miles or closer. The Silver Needle Death Rain will kill most everything else at five miles out, finally... a biblical-scale flood will submerge the area for 20 miles out.... So you know, you want to drop it and skeedaddle!"

Yep.

I am.

Posting my rounds as we speak. Had some unexpected travel earlier in the week.

Shoot me a PM with your ideas and I can get something up tonight.

I'm 100% confident on being back, I can manage to get posts up within a 7 day timeframe.

Missing TWO votes! C'mon people.

Also somebody mistakenly picked an 8 instead of a nine or ten.

Hey, Guys?

I'm about to post in but I have an issue!

I've repaired my power armor but I don't have a ranged weapon.

Is there anything on the sub (E-Pistol or E-Rifle) I can snag that Mech could have gotten permission for 'off camera'?

EXP has been added except for Kai. Note says SNAFU already added your EXP. SNAFU, if this is in error, I will add in his.

I apologize for the slight delay. Was working on my laptop when it went belly up. On the laptop was also a list of the changes that will occur when you level up (Making it easier for me to just make any changes if the player levels up). I will be redoing said list and anyone who levels up will just have to let me know of the new skills/powers/spells they want. I will do the rest including percentage adding. That's why it took so long to get everything together. I just want to drop a PM to the player going

You've leveled up. You get the following:
1 new OCC Related, 2 New Secondary, +2D6 P.P.E. and 2 spells up to current level. Let me know what they are and I will have them added. Please use the Level Up Trash post for all rolls.


I want to focus on book keeping. All the player should work on is their character in game. I'll handle the rest.

Maxwell: Just need to know if you already did your level up stuff from 6/1/16. If not, I will let you know what you are missing. Those who have leveled up (Mercedes, William) I have your lists ready. Mouser, you are a special case and I do not believe you gain anything yet.

Well, the AGM does nothing during the quad most of the time. Occasionally pokes and prods players, but ultimately just adds up EXP after each quad. Figured a little extra research helps them understand the characters a little more. I already sent William and Mercedes their information. What they do not see is the + Vs Horror Factor/Init/Strike/Parry/ETC. That plus the Percentages are the AGM's job to add in when they level up.

Plus I'm aiming for top marks in both groups for EP hording.

Neural AI's only gain secondary skills as they level (These are also the only skills that increase over time). They gain 2 at levels 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, and 15.

Please and thank you, don't make changes to my sheet without asking first even if you think the changes need be made. (Besides XP. I'm super grateful you stepped in to do that, I've been considering asking you to do CE if I can't find an AGM) I'm quite happy to do my own level ups, it works that way in every other group.

I understand completely, and if there's anyone else who feels that way, don't hesitate to let me know. When you do level up, I'll send you all the additional information, such as combat bonuses, additions to saves, WP increases, etc. Like I said, I'm doing the leg work. If you get anything via EP, that is also the player's responsibility.

For those saying they want to do their own sheet editing, do you want me to send you the bonuses you would get once you level up, meaning you don't have to go through the book and look everything up or is that also something you don't mind doing as well?

I'd personally rather just do it myself.

It's nothing against you, just this is something I am anal about and even if you provided the bonuses, etc, I'd go back and check anyway so there's no sense of it beign done twice. ;)

Happy Thanksgiving, you crazy Americans!!

I'd just like to say, I'm thankful for the Roughnecks, damn good group of RPers here, it's been a pleasure doing business with you.

I hope everyone enjoyed/ is enjoying the separated story-lines. I know that some were more involved than others. I figured Kai would rather RP with another player for awhile so my attempts to provide that chance resulted in you and Mercedes having the lesser plot, I admit. Although, I got to slaughter some Ewoks, so it's a win for me. I think Mouser's narrative was cool though. Will and Max were on hiatus. The Mechanic can join anytime by tracking Mouser. So now we return to the group adventure as scheduled.

Wakiza, I may have to wrap your tale up in a single unsatisfactory bow for the sake of pacing. I know you got the basic idea, but I have so many Easter Eggs tucked in there it would have been cool to explore it further.

Anywho, everyone has learned an important bit of intel, and needs to share it with each other, and your allies if you choose.

This is the part of the adventure where I make the background setting extremely complicated. It doesn't change your mission, much, but it broadens the scope of consequences your actions will have.

  • There is a bomb in the desert that can destroy a Kingdom.
  • Everyone agrees it should be dropped.
  • The region is complicated so there are tough choices to be made.
  • This bomb could literally change the face of the world!
    (Actually the aftermath will be kept kinda vague so as not to contradict any further publications, but rest assured, the future canonical outcome will be a result of your choices here and now!)

Michael Maxwell wrote:OOC: Due to my RL hiatus I'm not sure exactly what all our different missions are and what we need from these guys.


Wakiza, and now Mouser, are not in this dimension anymore and the other characters have no way of knowing where they are. Now that Max and Will have heard what happened to Murdoc, they could guess its some crazy stuff. Presumably the best course of action would be to wait in and around La Venta until they show up.

Murdoc, William, and Maxwell are the only ones with this information at this time. As far as Will and Max are concerned, the only additional news is what Murdoc has reported.

Kai and Mercedes were sent on a short half-day diplomatic mission earlier that day, so Maxwell and William know where they are and expect them back any moment. Only Kai and Mercedes know about the large congregation of werewolves.

These Aztari appeared out of nowhere with this miraculous mission. You don't really need anything from them, but their objectives line up with yours (or at least Humanity's) and their money is good. Unless you're referring to tactical help, in which case it's up to you guys to figure what you think you'll need and canvas the various NPCs for help in acquiring it.

That's fine, makes it easier for me. I didn't want to take away the option of capturing a werewolf for interrogation purposes though. :wink:

Which direction on the map is the convoy traveling?

I'm guessing from the top of the map, down and over the bridge?

Boy, am I red in the face. You guys were waiting for me! Can I get the last person to post to tag the OOC letting me know, I'm used to being badgered for posts... ;)

Anyway I took some liberties and moved you straight to the ambush, hope you enjoy.

Hey Snafu, if I get two extra actions this round, if I use the Battle Fury Blade, that means 4 attacks before my normal ones? Thanks.

What's the status of the map update?

We've got a lot of characters in play for this fight and I'm kinda getting lost on who's where.

I might alter my post depending on an updated map, but I figure going after vampires is good sport regardless. Unless you guys want me to do something else. In which case, just holla! (But I ain't no hollaback girl.)

I like the idea of a Burster. We should keep our options open though. Three teams are disbanding ( if it is true that the Templars are disbanding too), so that is a lot of players that will need homes.

Presently it's fairly possible the Templar will remain. I have at least 3 confirmed players, one who's on long term hiatus in the tracker and I'm waiting to hear back from the others.

I'm actually really tempted to put one of my characters inactive to use that Sea Inquisitor OCC I just unlocked. If the Templars are sticking around, that's the first place I'd look for a home. :p
