Title: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (14:51:05/11-08-15)
Quote from: The Deal

Find Crockpot and the missing nuyen/arms.  Teach Crockpot (or whoever waylaid him) a lesson.

Pay is 10,000¥ each.  2,000¥ is offered up front, leaving 8,000¥ upon completion.

Please use the IC post for narratives only.

All dice rolls, questions, character intents, and just discussion should take place here.

For Dice Rolling, please create an account on Orokos (http://orokos.com/roll/).  The format to roll dice for Hits on 6s is #d6t5 < for x 6 sided dice with a target of 5.  If you pre-edge, then to get the 'exploding 6s' the format is #d6h5.  When you roll those dice, the result will have it's own specific url.  Please note your dice rolls here thus:

Automatics ## Dice Pool: x Hits  / x for Smartlink, -x for Darkness <--- where x Hits is the text in the url, written thus: [ url = http://orokos.com/roll/341359 ] 1 Hit [ / url ] (Remove the Spaces for bbcode); and the text behind the slash are any modifiers you included.

In the IC posts, please adopt the use of colors to indicate matrix 'speech', 'thought', 'astral communication', etc.  You can find examples of this in other games, but it looks like this:

Quote
What the frag! thought Crystalzine as the bullets whizzed overhead. 

"We got to get out of here," Tomahawk said, pulling back.

Crystalzine nodded and called Grigor.

<<Grigor [Crystalzine] Bring that truck around, there is too much heat, we need an extraction.>>

I use Red for speech, Green for Matrix Texts, discussion, Blue for Thought, Orange for Astral Communications, but no one is tied to those colors or even required to use that formatting at all, it's just a request.

I will try to post EVERYDAY.  That's whether others post or not.  If someone isn't posting and we need them to post, I will post for them to keep the game moving.  This will include making calls on using edge.  If this gets to be a normal thing, I will then assign your character to another player in the group.  If you are out for several weeks without letting us know you are going to be back, I will assume you have quit and may take that opportunity to add some drama to the game in the form of dead or dying team members.

With all  of that, welcome to the OOC!

@ Ravensoracle

With one hit on Fox it's a name you know you've heard, but nothing more on that.


@ realbrit70

A matrix search would take a long time... the first part of it is spent wading through pictures and articles on... well... foxes.  Vixens.  He finds websites about furries. Then companies... finding a guy who gave himself the 'nickname' of Fox is not something that appears to be working out for you.
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: realbrit70 on (22:21:23/11-09-15)
@Jayde - My intent was that the search was more focused toward using the digital signature of the message sent to try and identify the sender. Like a reverse phone number lookup or IP search rather than searching for Fox. My bad for not making that clear. Do you want another roll for that? Or is it even worth it for only a couple of hours of digging?

No love on the trace icon.


@ DKrogh

Fox is a high end Fixer and Johnson.  He's well connected and sets up jobs for... well... just about anyone and everyone.  Corps, Crime Rings, Gangers... if they can pay his fee, he'll fix the game.  He's a straight shooter but known to be a bit dispassionate towards his assets.  He has a sort of 'You knew what you were getting into, so it's not my problem' attitude.  You get the job, you get the parameters, and you are expected to perform.

There are stories of a few times when he's been double crossed by Shadowrunners, by Corporate fixers, Johnson's, Mafioso's... usually followed by a story of those individuals disappearing...

Elliot's

A first-class French restaurant on the waterfront, known for its choices of both soy and meat items. Soy choices are so expertly prepared, some like them better than the real thing! The views of the waterfront and the Sound are spectacular, particularly at night, with the tables lit by candlelight, making this a great spot for a romantic dinner.

It used to be a snobbish establishment but in this decade it's become more inviting, the result of tireless work by current owner Tom Cantrelli, who is said to be in the pocket of the Gianelli family.

How much for something not armored and off-the-rack that I can pick up on the way to the meet? I want to make it to the meet early to recon the area.
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (13:14:35/11-10-15)
200 - 500 for a non fitted suit.  It'll look cheap but should get you in the door.

Fitted is gonna cost more since you'll be asking them to do a rush job, so double the price, 400 to 1000.  400 for cheap duds and 1000 for a snazzy suit.  But unarmored.

When you guys make expenditures and shoot bullets,etc, if it's easier to make the note on your placeholder rather than updating your actual Portal Character sheet every time, I'll roll it all up at the end of the run.  I'm happy entrusting you guys to do it yourself on your sheet, but then it's definitely up to you to do it without omitting anything!

@Jayde

Cost of a cab from the edge of the Barrens to the Waterfront? 20Y?

Once Walks In Cloud is in the general area of the restaurant he'll start to ping local PAN/commlink devices taking a single automatic success to query each non-silent device for it's commcode looking for a match. He'll concentrate on those heading into the restaurant or any PAN/commlink device that appears to be staying within the automatic perception range of 100m.

He'll also perform the occasional active check for hidden devices:

Active Matrix Perception Check 1: 2 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/342493) / -2 for accessing Matrix from AR
Active Matrix Perception Check 2: 2 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/342500) / -2 for accessing Matrix from AR
Active Matrix Perception Check 3: 4 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/342501) / -2 for accessing Matrix from AR

This will continue once he enters the restaurant before the meet starts

@ realbrit70

Oh, there are hidden devices, you could spend quite some time trying to reveal them all, and if you do, operate with divided attention at the table with Mr. Johnson, affording you a -2 to all activities besides the matrix perception tests.


@ DKrogh

The only people who 'don't belong' are some of these slots that showed up to head to Mr. Johnson's table with you.  Some of them look like they don't know how to wear the stylish suit they have, or just lifted any old sports jacket off a rack.  The black female(?) elf is awakened, and powerful.  So is the ork.


@ Zeroman and Ravensoracle

As with DKrogh, the perception tests net that the only people 'out of the ordinary' are the runners meeting up.

@Jayde

Actually my intent was to identify the Johnson before he arrived and make sure it's not a trap. If I can't do that before being shown to the table and the start of the meet I'll drop the matrix perception.
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (13:58:35/11-11-15)
Yeah, the Johnson, as you might surmise from the IC post, was already on the premises.

Post by: Zeroman on (13:21:36/11-12-15)
This might be a newbie question and something I should ask elsewhere since it doesn't really pertain to the campaign itself.
Do cybereyes stick out like a sore thumb? Or can they not use some sort of technological magic to hide them?
I can understand them being noticed by people that can detect implants or matrix signals and such, but just by looking, can I not hide them?
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: realbrit70 on (13:34:15/11-12-15)
From the 5e source book p453:

Cybereyes are available in any shape or color,
from “almost natural” to all chrome to solid glowing
purple and everything in between. Some models have
their color and pattern easily altered by downloading
a new skin.

So you can go "almost natural" but to my reading that suggests something a little off. Maybe if you pay more (alphaware through deltaware you get more realism?
Alternatively you could have just had the appropriate implants made to your natural eyes. What cybereyes give you is the potential of more stuff for less essence loss and a camera!

Okay, that makes sense. I'm trying to go for natural but I didn't put a lot of nuyen in the initial purchase, but that makes sense. Thanks!

Post by: Jayde Moon on (18:24:33/11-12-15)
The 'something off' is mostly a fluff bit.  I'd say that if someone scored some hits on a perception test to see if you had cybereyes, or it was a date who decided they liked you and began to stare 'lovingly' into your eyes or something.  But just casual contact, nah.

Nah, you can contribute all 4.  If you were the LEAD on the test and someone else got 4 hits, and a third person got 3 hits, for a total of 7 hits, you could only take 1 of those 7 because you only have 1 rank in the skill.  Hope that helps.

Walks in Cloud sends his registered Sprite on Matrix Search for information in regard to Crockpot. This is task 1 of 3 for the Sprite.

Roll for Sprite Matrix Search: Computer 6 (assuming Sprite Skills = Level) + Data Processing 10: 3 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/343802)

If I can use edge to reroll failures on the Sprite's task then I will: 5 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/343803)

So that's either 3 hits if I can't second chance the Sprite task or 8 (not sure what the limit on the Sprite is.. if it's Sprite level then the limit is 6) if the use of edge is allowed. Either way it's going to be 12 hours before I get the results

You've heard the name somewhere... with the information that he's an arms broker, it is easier to connect a few dots.  Usually able to procure military grade but not 'delta' grade weapons.  Assault Rifles, light machine guns, maybe the cheaper grenade launchers.  The sort of stuff that doesn't cause TOO much attention when you move it.

The OOC idea that you 'can't get a car' isn't what's going on 'IC'.  Looks like someone wants to get a car, the question is who is picking it up.  If you think that's a bad idea, please make that clear in the IC so I know what you guys are doing and can make the appropriate posts :)

No drain taken, please mark off a point of Edge.

King Willy has a Connection Ratingx2 Test Hits of Psyche available at 220 a dose, though he will go down 5 nuyen per dose per hit on a loyalty test.

Walks in Cloud will rent the van on his SIN under the name Kachada Dawson (fake SIN rating 3). He'll then run back to his apartment in the Barrens and pick up his running gear (armor vest, ingram and one of the fly-spys) then head to the meet in Renton.

Edit: Sorry forgot the -2 dice pool for the public grid - updated results by removing last two dice from each roll

As an example of the information I'm trying to get if you do a search for Renton GIS and property tax information you will find that in our world that information is a matter of public record and in 5 minutes I was able to get names for the owners of each house, when they bought the house, how much they paid for it, how much they pay in taxes, a basic floorplan of the house and a basic description of the number of rooms on each floor of the house. I realize this has no meaning on the outcome of my in game actions but I thought it would be interesting to see what mirroring the actions in real life would accomplish.

@ Lighthouse

Are you possessed or channeling?


@ realbrit70

All of the houses on this block have the same owner, a Real Estate Company called whatever you decide it's called.

There are no comeliness running silent (assuming you use one of your 'questions' to ask if there are any commlinks running silent.

The floorplans for all of the houses are the same, the door opens into a short foyer which opens into the living room.  There is a hallway that leads to two bedrooms, one a master.  There is a single bathroom at the end of the hall.  Behind the living room is a kitchen dining area combo.  They all have appliances wired to a low rating 'host' for the house.  The hosts are 'stock' and unsuitable for storing personal information on, though you could if you wanted.  Host ratings are 3.

The family sitting down to dinner are doing so in what would normally be the front room.

The vehicle belongs to Fred Henry, looks legit, but it would take some doing to penetrate a fake SIN.


@ Ravensoracle

You'll have to poke around and make a determination based on your observations as to which house is his.  There's no door that says 'Crockpot' on it.  It's possible he lives with the family eating dinner, you suppose.

Mostly seems quiet on the street, neighbors are super nosy.  The neighborhood is probably a C rating area. (Run Faster 220)

@Jayde, Can I tell what those "appliances" are without accessing the host? To my mind assuming those appliances are wired to the host then there is no wireless signal to identify and so I would need to access the host in order to identify and interact with the devices inside the host. Is this correct? My specific goal here is to identify lighting, power and security systems in the houses that I could potentially control..

The appliances are wireless slaved to the host.  But they are slaved, so you need either a direct connection to the device, or you need to hack the host to then hack the devices.

I think Zeroman has a point in regard to house 1 & 2. I'm about to hack into a host or two when I get the answer to the following question

@Jayde, camera icons are slaved to which host(s)? I'll make the perception tests after transcending the grid. Rolls to follow
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed

Walks in Cloud actions:

Transcendent Grid Level 6: (Thread Complex Form - Complex Resonance Action) Software 5 + Resonance 6: 2 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346743)
Fading: 3DV (L-3) Willpower 6 + Resonance 6: 3 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346746)

So no fading and 2 minutes of transcendent grid activity

Matrix Perception to determine host(s) for camera icons: (Complex Action) Computer 5 + Logic 4 + VR 2 - Grid 0: 2 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346747)

Compile a Crack Sprite Level 6: (Compile Sprite - Complex Action) Compiling 6 + Resonance 6 - Grid 0: 4 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346748)
Against the Sprite Level 6: 0 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346749)
Fading: 2DV (minimum) Willpower 6 + Resonance 6: 6 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346750)

Again no fading and 4 tasks owed by the sprite.

Following actions will be to have the Sprite Hack on the Fly each of the hosts that have camera icons and mark it with Walks In Cloud's mark. Hacking 6 + Sleaze 9
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (13:16:41/11-24-15)
My understanding is that Sprites have their own MARK and cannot place a MARK for you.

However, they can make teamwork tests to your Hack on the Fly to help you place a MARK.

If this is not the case (I honestly don't have a deep understanding of how Sprites work), let me know and also if you could point me to where it says sprites can place their 'owners' MARK.

Thanks!
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: realbrit70 on (15:56:29/11-24-15)
Oops, you are right. I was confusing Resonance signature with ability to MARK and thinking that as the Sprite and I share a Resonance signature we also share a MARK. My first time with a Technomancer too.

In that case we'll team up to Hack on the Fly against the first host I identify has a slaved security system.

Sprite Hack on the Fly: Hacking 6 + Sleaze 9: 6 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346876)
gives +1 to my limit and +6 to dice pool (only 5 added because of skill level)

Walks in Cloud Hack on the Fly (Limit 4+1): Hacking 5 + Logic 4 + Hot VR 2 + Teamwork 5 + Transcedent 0: 6 hits (http://orokos.com/roll/346883) (only 5 count)
against Intuition + Firewall.

If there are extra net hits I'm looking for devices running silent in the host and host's firewall rating in that order.

Walks In Cloud successfully removes the parts of the video, replacing them with a copy of the file before.  As the camera isn't sweeping, it's a simple matter.  And yes, you are right, RealBrit, that kind of got lost in the Thanksgiving shuffle, but we got to the same place ultimately.

Just to ask before I post, is there any first floor windows? If not, second story ones? I remember there was a car parked there, is there any kind of overhang above it?

There are Windows on the first floor, but without examining them, it's hard to know if they'd even open.  Given the additional security on the backdoor (not present on the backdoor of house 3), you wouldn't be surprised if the Windows were extra secure.

There is a car port, not a garage, but it's attached to the house.  There is no second floor.

The actual car is in house 3.

Sorry for not posting earlier, a death in the family (my grandmother) pushed holiday travel plans up.

If you are in the house, make a visual perception test.  It is Very dim light (-3) to the roll.  Low light vision removes this modifier.  Thermographic vision does not help in this situation.

If it would apply I have the Searching specialization and was actively looking for clues so that would be an extra 5 dice.

Specialty (Searching) +2 Actively looking +3 (http://orokos.com/roll/355770): 5d6t5 3

That would give a total of 5 successes

Dee suddenly thinks back to that old note pad trick where you take a pencil and rub it on the notepad and it reveals what was written on the sheet on top.

Also:

Happy New Year!

I'm back, Monday is a travel day for me, but should still have an opportunity to post.

My work days for the next two weeks SHOULD slow down from the weeks before Christmas.  We'll see.

What is the address of? Commercial? Industrial? Suburban? Is it a business? Can one of you techies run a matrix search on it? As it's our only lead I would assume we move on it.

Plug the address into google maps, that's what the matrix search will bring up.

It's an old warehouse though.

Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (19:45:45/01-12-16)
Arrived at the warehouse.  What's going on now?

Meanwhile, I wrote something up to show why I'm not as on the ball with posting as would like.  I've been really busy at work so I thought 'd share what that meant, hopefully to get some leeway from you guys :P

It's in a spoiler tag, though, so if you don't care, you don't have to scroll paste wall of text.

[spoiler]I am the Senior Enlisted Intelligence Analyst for a Sustainment Command, of which the Headquarters Element (including myself) is deploying to Kuwait this Spring.  While I am Active Duty, the unit itself is a reserve unit, so in the past few months it has gone from being about 40% manned to 100%, but that 60% did not have the ‘requirements’ so we’ve been feverishly getting those together in time for our train ups which start in a week and a half.  The train ups will include a training exercise in California and then in Texas.

As the Sr Intel Analyst, I am also the Security Manager for the entire command, which is something like… I think 5000+ people.  So while getting this several hundred contingent ready to go to Kuwait, I still have to also manage the Security Management program for the command.  I will relinquish this duty in two weeks, but right now I’m still the one.

Then, part of the 60% included my ENTIRE intelligence team.  So it went from JUST ME to several junior intelligence analysts, techs, and two superior Officers, all of which I have to train, respond to, prepare for training directly… and they are all reservists who don’t understand several of the processes.

Finally, I am a Geo-Bachelor (since i moved to this location specifically for this deployment, I did not bring my wife) so now I am in the midst of moving everything out of my house.

I have not gotten out of the office prior to 7pm on most nights.  12 hour days are a norm and it’s pretty much working lunch every day.  On top of that, I have meetings about meetings, and each meeting generates more work.  The General wants to know what he wants to know and he wants to know it yesterday.  I won’t have a weekend off until… 2017.  I might get 5-7 days between California and Ft. Hood to go see my wife for a week before I don’t get to see her for 9-12 months.

None of this is for a ‘woe is me’, I am happy with my work and look forward to this deployment, relatively (I miss my wife and dog a whole lot)… just wanted to give you guys an idea of why I am having to de-prioritize posting here, some days.

I remain committed to running this play-by-post and trying to still get on every day or not miss more than a day, until month 2 is complete.  I will probably wait to run month 3 until I am settled in Kuwait and understand what my schedule there will be like.

Anyway, that’s all!  I hope you stay with me through this time, because I do enjoy running this PbP.[/spoiler]

Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (02:06:18/01-31-16)
So, wow.  I expected to be busy this week, but not this excruciatingly badly.

It's 10:50 pm California time.  So I've been working every day since last Tuesday.  I guess last Saturday was sort of a day off?  Not really, the bulk was our unit flight to California, but we were up and in uniform at early o'clock and upon arrival sat in briefings to acquaint us with the post.

So we're doing this 'Staff Level' exercise, and it turns out no one knows what the f they are doing, so I've been in the 'office' at 7am after breakfast at the dining facility and then leaving 'office' at 10pm or later.  That's pretty much been every day this week.  Tuesday we got out at 8pm :D

I'm officially out of laundry and will try to do some tomorrow.  If I can find a free machine.  Good times.

And there is no sign that it's not going to be like this for the next four nights.  Wednesday ends the training exercise and then Thursday will be a regular length day and then Friday the flight back home.  Then we'll work over the weekend again.

Last night I tried to get on but I guess the forums were down so now I'm trying to get caught up tonight and give you guys a little something.  I am also frustrated that I don't even have enough time to take half an hour to post on some forums.

The irony is that once we're actually overseas, everything will calm down once we find our battle rhythm.  We'll still have 14 hour days, but we;ll be able to find 3-4 hours within those 14 hours to take for ourselves, and maybe even swing the shifts a bit because that 14 hour requirement is office manning, not necessarily everyone has to be there the whole time.

Alright, anyway, in game:

Zeroman, let's get a stealth check and a description of how you're snooping.

Hoping into the compound and staying in shadows. (http://orokos.com/roll/368043): 13d6t5 6

I'm going to be moving in the shadows, staying in the darker parts of the perimeter at first. If there is any shorter buildings, I will hop up and pull myself up into a prone position to get a look around the area from a bit of elevation.

Bear with me, gentlemen, as my 100 hour work week comes to a close.  Hopefully push this forward leaps and bounds over the weekend.
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (19:20:43/02-13-16)
At this time I am making a decision to table the Shaking Down Shadows games until I can actually regularly devote time to them.  I did not anticipate the amount of work it would take to prepare for this deployment I am about to go on.  I guess that's what happens when you plus up a unit from 40% manning to 60% (read: all new people) and then try to get them trained for a year abroad in just a few short months.

The irony is that once I'm in country I am fairly confident that my schedule will stabilize.  Unfortunately, that won't be until April sometime.

I think it would be better to just hold off for the next month and a half to two months than to try to force a post haphazardly and force everyone to sort of monitor the threads 'just in case' I might have posted.

I am still very interested and excited to keep these games going as I have the whole 'year' IG sort of plotted out and I am very disappointed with the circumstances that that have 'forced' my inactivity.

I am very appreciative that you all have stuck with it and I ask that you bear with me a little while longer.  We'll get the ball rolling on these and I hope that it will all be worth it in the end.

When I am certain I can post regularly, I will send you all a message, either via PM or email (PM me your email address in that case!)  Thanks for your understanding.

So, there is a third story window that looks inside the warehouse, is there anything under it I could use to get to the window? Like a small shed?

I'll have my post up depending on if there is something I can get on top of.

I rolled Zeroman's edge, and there is a dumpster that will get you up two meters, but it's still 8 meters to the window.  It's a 'rough' wall to climb.
Title: Re: [SDS OOC] Stiff Armed
Post by: Jayde Moon on (15:36:44/06-20-16)
By 'rough' I meant that it's climbable with cracks and stuff to get handholds in.  Not 'boy that's gonna be rough'

Unfortunately, to get line of sight, you have to climb up to a third story window.  Mother gets to roll 1 die for climbing.

I will hold on to your rolls, however, you can always knock the door down and then cast your spells while the guys are in their surprise round.

If that's the route you all go, give me Reaction + Intuition + 6

Reaction + Intuition + 6 (http://orokos.com/roll/416306): 16d6t5 4

Would it help if I moved back to the window and tried to help pull Mother up? Though not sure how long the conversation is going to go for.

If we go into combat through the front door, Zeroman is going to hold back at first to see if any of the baddies resist Mother's plan.
