Quote from: The Deal

Find out who attacked Shiawase Towers.  Stop them before they strike again.

Pay is 10,000¥ each.  1,000¥ is offered up front, leaving 9,000¥ upon completion.
Half of damages up to 2,500¥ has also been offered.

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.  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 = ] 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:

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!

I'm traveling today to the West Coast, but I'll try to get an initial post in today once I get settled into a hotel and find some food.  If I don't post today, I'll definitely do so tomorrow.

Roll to plot a course across town, such that VanGuard can make it to the meet site a little early so his Fly-Spies can get a once over of the area.  Ideally about 15-30 minutes early if possible.  He of course i driving within the legal limits, so as to minimize any unwanted attention.

Navigation: 13d6t5 / 3 hits - DP: INT (6) + Navigation (3) + Map specialization (2) + Orientation System Cyberware [wireless bonus] (2)

Summon a force 5 spirit of man:

Summoning 12 Dice Pool: Summon force 5 spirit of man: 12d6t5 2
    Spirit resist: 5 dice pool: Spirit f5 resist: 5d6t5 0 (results in drain 2)
    = net hits 2

Drain resist 12 dice pool vs drain x: summoning drain resist 12 dice: 12d6t5 5
    2-5 = 0 drain taken

(lost most of this message one time already, and had to go back to re-roll resist (still had the page up for drain).  future reference, pop up separate windows for each roll, and keep them up until the message is successfully posted)

and both OOC and off-topic: has anyone had Lorde's song' Tennis Court' stuck in their head since reading the opening post?

Then, in the park, (and I can ret-con that if she wouldn't have gotten there in time), preparing two mind link preparations, both force 3 with contact triggers (=drain 3)

First roll, 8 dice pool: alchemy: first mind link: 8d6t5 3
     Resistance of 3 dice from the spell: alc sp res: 3d6t5 2
     Drain: 12 dice pool vs drain 3 alch drain 1: 12d6t5 7
          Hence: force 3, potency 1, take no drain

Second roll, 8 dice pool: alch mind link 2: 8d6t5 5 limited to 3 by spell force
     Resistance of 3 dice from the spell: alch mind link 2 spell res: 3d6t5 0
     Drain: 12 dice pool vs drain 3 alch mind link 2 spell res: 12d6t5 6
          Hence: force 3, potency 3 , take no drain

And then searching for the meet.
Forty/perception: 8 dice pool 40 perception: 8d6t5 1
Spirit (if a roll is needed?) Asensing pool of 11 spirit asensing: 11d6t5 7
     Spirits to the rescue again, hopefully?

I'm not sure of the size of the park, this could be one service, or if it had to go too far it may be free now  Let me know and I'll update the status post appropriately.

Also ... good lord, I'd never really thought about how much dice rolling mages had to do sometimes!  Next on-line character is mundane.  Well, maybe a regular adept :p

Vanguard is able to make it there without incident.

It takes just a few minutes to make the preparations.  Forty has the time.

Spirit searching the park if you come in on the side with the most people, the tennis courts are very obvious.  Picnic tables nearby are mostly empty except one where a hispanic male with a beanie and 'denim' jacket sits on the table with his feet resting on the bench.
That's just like... your opinion, man.

I'll apologize in advance for the brevity of my posts as we get started, I'm traveling for work this week and fighting a bit of jet lag caused by a connecting flight being delayed. 

Can anyone tell me how I can see my character sheet (not just the description) on the Obsidian Portal page?  Or should I just be working off of what I submitted for the time being?

VanGuard will do some mini-legwork while in transit and after he arrives a little early (aiming for 30 minutes early at most).  This "mini-legwork" will consist of:
  • Matrix searching Lucien: Matrix search for info and images of Lucien: 8d6t5 4 hits - DP: LOG (5) + Computer (3) // Limit: 7 Mental (7)
  • Parking the van to have as much line of sight of the meet as is possible
  • Deploying the Fly-Spies to survey the meet sight and run matrix searches on anyone in the meet area who doesn't appear to be Lucien (GM can make Matrix search rolls, if needed)

I am waiting for the two who haven't posted in the IC thread yet to do so before I make any further posts there.

If finding parking with LOS is difficult, here is another Navigation roll to help find it: Finding Parking with "LOS" on meet: 13d6t5 7 hits - DP: INT (6) + Navigation (3) + Map specialization (2) + Orientation System Cyberware [wireless bonus] (2) // Limit: 9 / Mental (7) + Orientation System (2)
Perception tests to locate the meet:
Teamwork Tests for Fly-Spies:

VanGuard perception rolls:
  • With Bulldog assisting: Perception roll to locate meet w/ Van: 21d6t5 6 hits DP: INT (6) + Perception (4) + Visual Specialization (2) + Perceptive 2 (2) + Attention Co-Processor [wireless bonus] (1) + Vision Enhancement 2 [wireless bonus] (2) + Teamwork (4) // Limit: 10 / Mental (7) + Attention Co-Processor (1) + Vision Enhancement (2)
  • Without Bulldog assisting (if not able to find a spot to park with LOS): Without Bulldog Van Teamwork perception test: 18d6t5 7 hits DP: INT (6) + Perception (4) + Visual Specialization (2) + Perceptive 2 (2) + Attention Co-Processor [wireless bonus] (1) + Vision Enhancement 2 [wireless bonus] (2) + Teamwork (3) // Limit: 10 / Mental (7) + Attention Co-Processor (1) + Vision Enhancement (2)

PS: Rolling teamwork checks with drones and vehicles is a lot of dicerolling....  and let me know if the dicepool descriptions are too much to read, @Jayde Moon

Matrix Search on Lucien for info and pic: 8d 2 hits

Matrix Search for information on Lake Fenwick Park, including neighborhood ratings and map:  8d 4 hits

Letting grid guide get me there while I look up info.  When I get there I will perform Matrix Perception test: 8d 4 hits
     Question 1:  Are there any icons running silent
     Question 2-4:  If so, rating and type.   If not, ratings on comlinks in area (runners/Johnson's tend to use high end comlinks)
