JiC 1d20:  = 2 / 1d100:  = 27
Physical shell: Think Puck from Alpha Flight in a latex body suit; height, 3'6"; weight, normally ey goes for around 225 lbs, but if ey can get it down to 150 or lower, that would be ideal
Invoke trust (50%) 1d100<50:  = 0 - Convince the Horune that the power armor is a better wager than the crate with the hover cycle
Form physical shell 1d4:  = 4 hours
1. Strike 1d20+1: +1 = 6
2. Strike 1d20+1: +1 = 20
3. Strike 1d20+1: +1 = 13
When Herk mentions that the pirates are willing to wager in a crew toss, MOD is elated. A broad toothy smile stretches across eir face, and ey look over to the Silhouette. Then the Horune say what they want, and MOD blinks twice but holds eir smile. That is not what I was hoping to wager. I have plans for that hovercycle.
"Well, that is a fun bet on its own." Ey looks at the pirate that whispered in Herks ear, raises eir eyebrows and says, "Didn't happen to have a look inside, did you? I haven't, honestly couldn't say what's in there. Could be something nice in that box, or it could be empty. If you want a safer bet, I'll wager my PA. It's got a ding, but I can have my Machine 'shop it for you before we turn it over."
MOD takes another sip from the bottle ey is holding to buy time and let the pirates dwell on the offer. If the offer is ultimately rejected, ey will shrug and then chuckle. "Going to be honest, I had some fun ideas of how I wanted to use that crate. Then again, I got some fun ideas for how I want to use the shadowy asshole you got tied up. So I guess that's square."
MOD the shakes hands with Herk to seal the wager before giving Zathark a pep talk.
"Excellent!" MOD claps eir hands. Ey runs down the rules as Herk listed them and then lays out the strategy. "The way I see it, we got two tossers and a pair of balls. I'll change into a more aerodynamic form and then we'll let you two," ey points at Bert and the doctor, "decide who you want to throw."
Ey turns around and looks over to Herk. "We're going to need a moment to get prepped." If Herk demands to know why, MOD reveals that ey is a phantom. Ey walks over to the Baron and then reverts back into an energy being, emptying all the liquid ey has drank so far over the silhouette.
Ey then goes about crafting a new physical shell. The body is more physically compact, only 3'6" but almost that wide, covered in a black latex body suit that only leaves the face, with a pug nose and drooping mustache, exposed. The process takes longer than usual, and if the pirates start to get restless, MOD says to Doctor White, "Hey doc, why don't you tell them that one joke of yours."
When it's game-time, MOD curls up into a tight ball and spins in the air.
