Modified the opening post to account for the fact that I have somehow convinced myself that all covert op specialists are elven.  My apologies to any ninja in the audience.

Here's my assensing rolls for all the others.  They are in the same way Crossbow described them (so first the two in each others arms, then the next group, and so on, with the one up as last).

assensing 3 + intuition 3 =6 (6d6.hits(5)=4, 6d6.hits(5)=3, 6d6.hits(5)=1, 6d6.hits(5)=1, 6d6.hits(5)=2, 6d6.hits(5)=1, 6d6.hits(5)=0)

I spend one edge to reroll the last one (p74, use of edge to reroll all dice on a test that did not score a hit

assensing 3 + intuition 3 =6 (6d6.hits(5)=2)

That's it for this set of die rolls.
PS: maybe it's easier to keep the rolls in the IC, but in a spoiler tag.  That way they stay with the post they are rolled in.  I've done so in other games and I think it's easier.

I've copied the rolls into the IC.

ASSENSING RESULTS HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED TO ACCURATELY REFLECT RESULTS

Okay, first off that last roll was a critical glitch, not just a failure, so we will assume your spent edge downgrades it to a normal glitch and is still a failure, the effect of which is 2 boxes of unresistable stun, we will call it trying so much unfamiliar magical activity in your current state.

assensing results

Male human-Uninitiated adept with magic power equal to yours, good health, calm, no implants, rather bland and not someone you have ever met.

Female Ork-Mundane with signifigant loss of essence, about a third of a body's total capacity.  Currently calm, signs of recent minor muscle strain and superficial damage that has just recently been recovered from (She has been roughed up in the last day, with no serious effects) Again, a stranger to you.

Asian elf- Awakened, calm, unhurt.

Asian human-Mundane, calm, unhurt.

Elf next to you-Awakened mage that you are unfamiliar with, calm, unhurt.

Ginger Elf-Mundane, becoming somewhat agitated as his awareness increases, but otherwise unhurt.

Here's my assensing rolls for all the others.  They are in the same way Crossbow described them (so first the two in each others arms, then the next group, and so on, with the one up as last).

assensing 3 + intuition 3 =6 (6d6.hits(5)=4, 6d6.hits(5)=3, 6d6.hits(5)=1, 6d6.hits(5)=1, 6d6.hits(5)=2, 6d6.hits(5)=1, 6d6.hits(5)=0)

I spend one edge to reroll the last one (p74, use of edge to reroll all dice on a test that did not score a hit

As far as the Con roll goes, by the way: just use that, and if you feel like it an opposed roll as an RP guide.  Using social skill mechanics between PCs is asking for trouble, and I didn't intend it that way.

Crossbow, since you have to roll for me at the moment, how do you want to work it?
I figure the best way would be for me to post what I want to roll in spoiler tags, you post the results and links here, and then I copy it over to the spoiler tags.
Sound feasible?

Posting them here allows another player that is waiting on that result to act on it sooner - handy if you and whatever poster have different active times..  Just a thought.

Also, would it be better to have it just be whoever's online to do it, given that the rolls are public anyways and we can easily put in a different character's name (with the standing policy that the rule counts only if the character name references the correct character, solving the one possible issue that does immediately come to mind)?  That way, we can keep going more easily if you're offline, because we only need to stop for actual GM input?

RHat's first point makes sense, but to the second point I think that the GM should solely be the one to handle such things. In any event, Crossbow's stats show he has activity in every hour slot, so I doubt we'd have to wait all that long.

Out of curiosity Crossbow, does the next person up have a window we should be looking at, or are they whenever?

Fair and valid, I just figured I'd throw it out there for consideration.

And, for that matter, a follow-up to that question: are those of us who've been cleared to post free to keep going with the characters currently concious, or do we need to wait for each person to wake in turn?

Feel free to continue.  I will post something soon, but for the nonce it is you three.  No need to wait unless you need me.

You are easily able to find several rocks with sharp enough edges to as simple weapons and one thin and sharp enough to get between the hooded bodies to work at the restraints, it will be a few minutes work to gnaw the tough plastic through, regardless of position.

When the hoods are removed, the faces underneath are covered in duct tape, with gauze wadding poking out from the ears and mouth.

Okay, GM's No Prize at stake to the first person who can tell me why the description I just posted of your surroundings adds a new wrinkle to your plentiful problems.  PM answers will count for folks who can't post yet.
