Team Fund was at 5,200¥. With the new deposit of 5,000¥, it now stands at 10,200¥

2x R4 Lingausofts (Yoruba and French) are 4,000¥, bringing the Team Fund to 6,200¥

Would any team member oppose that purchase? I think the players agree, but what about the characters? Clem doesn't have any problems with it.

No objections from Sam. It's techy, so he's likely to just trust Snow if she says it's important.

I think you are being a little hard on yourself.  Best value i can figure for the opposing roll is about 9 dice total.  I will have to roll it when I get home from work but I think it is safe to say you succeeded.   What kind ofvresult were you looking for?

Thanks for pointing this post out--I'd missed it somehow. I was disappointed by the 8 hits because of the +5 DP for manipulating a crowd (and besides, the bigger the ensuing chaos, the better as far as Sam's concerned...)

In an ideal world, Sam would love to see a few people starting to take pictures, then a few more, quickly snowballing into a crowd of people asking for autographs & such; people insisting that they'd seen all her 'trids, they're longtime fans, and so on. Maybe even some media coverage of the (poor bewildered) lady starting as our team slips away to our next flight.

Heck, maybe she'll even get picked up by a talent agency and become the starlet Sam portrayed her as being. That'd be amazing--kind of the ultimate confirmation of Sam's ability to change reality.

Of course, Sam doesn't do this sort of thing for no reason; he's doing this largely to demonstrate his abilities to his employer, who didn't seem to appreciate them during the initial meet or in his attempt to organize some sort of cover story for when they get to their destination. Sam doesn't like being sidelined. ;)

Due to Clem's paranoia and bullying neither of these have occurred, Team Fund stands at 5,200¥.

Since Ndow is holding the funds, wouldn't she be able to take it from the funds herself? So that would leave the funds at ¥1,200 before the deposit.

That's what I was thinking as well. She hasn't collected the deposits from anyone else, but that discussion was happening after she bought the linguasofts.

BTW, I'm assuming that Sam's still out doing his thing while all of this is happening.

Hydro, you seem to think we're in a bar. McHugh's is the Shadowrun version of McDonald's.

Oh, the drink part must have confused me. McHugh's sounded like something Scottish/Irish to me, which put images of pubs in my mind. Let me change a few things then.

Snow was asking for permission to reimburse herself with the team funds when Clem shut her down, so that and the deposits from Jane's advance are still in waiting.

I agree that they are still in waiting.  Snow will not take the funds without team approval and they have not had a chance to talk this over as a team yet.  And I, too, thought that the places was a pub of some kind.

It isn't, so you can't buy vodka or whiskey there.

McHugh's might be a burger joint, but I would be surprised if there is not a bar real close and that Sammy and I were able to get a drink.  What airport terminal would not have a bar on the food concourse, especially an international airport?  I am sure I could have the drinks with me and offer Con one.  You do not have to accept it, of course.

That's not how your post read. Regardless, what bar is just going to let you walk out with their glasses and double fisting drinks?
