Hoping into the compound and staying in shadows.: 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.

Looking around the area.: 11d6t5 6

Bear with me, gentlemen, as my 100 hour work week comes to a close.  Hopefully push this forward leaps and bounds over the weekend.
That's just like... your opinion, man.

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.
That's just like... your opinion, man.

Post is up, action to Zeroman to scale the wall and get in, or to report back.
That's just like... your opinion, man.

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.
That's just like... your opinion, man.

By 'rough' I meant that it's climbable with cracks and stuff to get handholds in.  Not 'boy that's gonna be rough'

Ok got it. I was thinking it would be tough and 8 meters is a high jump but I will post shortly.

So, basically, waiting on the plan or someone to make a move.

Unless something doesn't go according to plan this is what I do:

Perception roll:

http://orokos.com/roll/415208

so I don't see anything not obvious.

If I can see the guys near the chair without a roll I cast mob mind:

http://orokos.com/roll/415210

Now drain:

http://orokos.com/roll/415211

Think I survive so next I have a program on my phone that plays the thriller dance music when I speak the phrase let's dance

I make them do the Thriller dance:

http://orokos.com/roll/415212

Hilarity ensues.

Then I say go into the phone the signal for The troll to do the troll thing

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: 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.

Wait I can fly. If my calculations are correct at Force two I can lift my body weight. That's a drain of like one.
