APDS: I don't think Armor Avoidance is overpowered. It means that net hits skip the Armor track, not the whole attack. In this case it would mean that 8P (base attack) hits the Doberman's armor and 3P (net hits) hit the Doberman directly.

Ahh, I've been misreading Armor Avoidance.  Thanks for clarifying.  In that case, AA is the way to go, I think.

I'm going to spend a Plot Point for Take the Hit, and have the roto-drone interject itself between the human and Swoopy.  He even gets a chance to dodge!

Hmm, that is indeed how it is written. This would certainly make sense for blocking melee attacks, but I'm not sure how one "takes the hit" while simultaneously dodging the hit when it comes to ranged attacks.

I'd say that maybe the rotodrone knocks Swoopy out of the way, but Swoopy is already crawling. Have fun ICing this one.

@MDMann Dodge a 1-hit attack (6P if it connects) and a 4-hit attack (8P). You don't have to take the "in melee" penalty since you have dispatched the ice elemental and are no longer in melee.

@Jayde Action to Chante

Mighty fine shooting Tex. Dan-Dan will just have to dance through the hail of lead.
Dodge agility 6 + logic 6: 2#12d6t5 4 6 4 hits then 6 hits. Dan-Dan Dancer Does Do.

And this is the point where certain players, especially those writing this post, regret feeding the GM so much Plot Point ammo.  I'll have more to say on Plot Points when we're out of this scene.

2nd baby daughter born (6lbs 13oz mother abd baby doing well) a few hours ago so my posting could be more erratic. It could be an opus or nothing and could well be both. Daddy's doing pretty well too (on no sleep). 😂

Edit. Corrected weight.

Congratulations!  Good health and blessings to you and your family!  May you never glitch as a father.
That's just like... your opinion, man.

for clarity, GM-Nissan Doberman:



It's about probably about waist high.

Thanks!

Thought I'd spend a plot point to give them (the UCAS) a greater fire elemental. To enter the fray at a cinematic moment.

Woah. Congratulations to you and the Mrs. on Slagathor the Destroyer. I know babies can get larger, but that's the largest one I've ever heard of directly, and certainly the largest girl.

MDMann has a free pass from the posting rate for the next couple weeks.

Also, great IC. I was planning an Interlude myself but was going to wait until after the combat. Depending on how the day goes, I might break it up into two parts so that the first part can continue MDMann's Interlude and the second part can happen when you get to da choppa.

If anyone else wants to IC post before then, that's fine, but for the moment I'm going to say that Interludes directly involving UCAS President Angela Colloton and/or Senator Paul Hollensfeld have a high likelihood of being retconned or overwritten.

The fire spirit has been summoned but needs an opportunity to move and materialize. It won't show up until next round.

@Jayde, Part I Where is that image of the Doberman from?

@MDMann I'm comfortable with the interpretation of a robodog with a machine gun on its back. Later in the campaign we'll have sharks with laser beams on their heads.

@Jayde, Part II Action to Chante

Thanks. That was a typo (I may not have slept for 2 days at the time) it should have read 6lbs 13oz. What's 3lbs here and there? I gave Paul a family and business and specific ambition. Feel free to retcon.

Haven't heard from Jayde yet so I'll cover the rest of the Initiative 0s.

#5 - male ork
This guy is pretty beat up. He's not hitting much so he's going to just hold the trigger down and hope for the best while waiting for reinforcements. We'll call this suppressive fire. Conditions won't affect it, since he's not firing to actively hit. We'll say that he won't hit any of you unless you do something like sprint straight for him, but the hits will act as negative modifiers.

Suppressive fire: Agility 5 + Heavy Weapons 2 - Wounds 2: 5d6t5 2 hits

Everyone (except Shiriki in the Dragon) is at -2 to actions you take this next round. This does not apply to dodging, which you can do without penalty. You can still take your movement actions too without risk of being hit (again, unless you're charging right at him).


#2 - female human
Agility 5 + Firearms 3 - Conditions 4: 4d6t5 1 hit

Initiative for the greater fire spirit: Initiative: 8d6t5 3 hits

@MDMann Dodge a 1-hit attack (6P if it connects).

@Jayde You have the morning to get up Chante's action.

@redblack Action to Shiriki's rotodrone. It's at -2 due to suppressive fire.

Sorry, I haven't been able to devote the time to the thread in the past few days and my next few days are going to be tight, i'll try to find some time sooner than later, but let's say I take an action repositioning closer to the evac chopper.
That's just like... your opinion, man.

Drone Dogbrain Attack: AGI (8) + Projectile Weapons (3) - Wind (2) - Visibility (2) - SF (2) = 5 dice: 2#5d6t5 1 1
There's some Tec rolling there.

Targets 2-6: 2#1d4 4 1
Well, I should've rolled a D5, but that's one attack to #2 Female and one attack to the #5 Male Ork.

AGI (5) + LOG (3) = 8 dice.: 8d6t5 2
Miss.

AGI (5) + LOG (3) - Wounds (2) = 6 dice.: 6d6t5 1
Hit for 8S, and knocking out the rest of his Stun track. 

If I can squeeze in an IC today I will.  It'll be short, but it will at least be a post.  If I have to wait until tomorrow, it'll have a little more heft to it. 

ETA: Congrats MDMann!  Being a dad is awesome.  Get that sleep when you can.  Being a parent, you'll constantly be in need of an Edge refresh.
