Rebecca reached out with her senses, still conscious in Mortimer's dying body. When she touched the Prophet's mind she could feel its relief, its final moment of bliss before departing a cruel and heartless world. She glimpsed something of its life, of the herd it once ruled, not long ago. Then she felt its insecurity as another Prophet was born within the herd, and the ultimate rift that occured, with the younger G'Kraun bending more and more to the rival's will.
Yet, in the end, all is dust and nothing. Learn from me child. Live your life while you still breathe. Regret nothing, and when you are cast away, die with dignity.
And with that she felt the overwhelming presence of the Prophet within her, a brief second. Then it was gone.
15% chance that Rebecca learns telekinesis level 1 (01-15)
75% chance that Rebecca learns mind pierce (01-75). Gives a +10 Will on an attack, but is severely draining.
100% : Rebecca gains the Psionic Level 2 perk. For psionical purposes she is Intellect/Will +2.
Katherine heard a grunt, and when the black blood of the Prophet trickled down on Mortimer the odd illusion of a flying puddle of black blood alerted her to his presence at the bottom of the stairs. Tracing his outline with their fingers, Angus and Katherine carried the dying pilot back into the shuttle.
Phil cursed as he carried Moa in his one good arm. Angelica Bradshaw-Brennan followed in his footsteps, carrying supplies to the Mary Sue.
Pain shot through his wounded arm as he dumped Moa down on a bunk bed. Katherine was already there, and she was applying pressure on Mortimer's wounds. The pilot looked like hell, pale as a corpse and spurting blood from torn veins.
A chill went through Phil's body, and he rested wearily against the wall.
Rebecca awoke with a start. The first thing she saw was Theodora Sax backing up against the wall.
"But... but... You stopped breathing a minute ago....", Theodora fainted. Then Rebecca realized her eye was hurting like hell, and she was bleeding from both eyes and nose.
All are aboard the Mary Sue, and the camp has been evacuated.
Katherine and Theodora (who wakes up quickly) has several choices. Either they can try to save Mortimer and Moa with regular means. That means making a doctor roll. Failure means Mortimer will stay for a week in coma before she can try again. Fumble means Mortimer dies during the procedure. Or she can use a nanobot healing syringe for instant, full recovery.
As for Moa the medical roll determines whether Moa's head injury results in brain damage or not.
After that Theodora and Katherine should treat Phil and Rebecca.
NOTE: Remember that Katherine is the head doctor, the most skilled one. If both doctors work on the same patient, Katherine's skill go up 30%. Katherine has to make some choices here.
Mortimer earns the "Lone Wolf" perk. When he is alone, his skills are increased by 5%.
Phil earns the "Berserker" perk. If his wounds are so great he cannot move an arm or a limb, he may go berserk and ignore his pain. This requires a Physique Roll on 1D20. If he rolls beneath his physique he can use that arm/limb for one more round. When he fails he cannot roll anymore, until he is treated.
Katherine's perk depends on her choices in the surgery room.
