The Silk Road OOC Chat
« on: December 22, 2017, 01:58:56 PM »
So, this is going to be the color commentary and Q&A for The Silk Road game.

Couple of things, this is going to be super casual, I want to play as my schedule permits.

We're playing kinda fast and loose here, so there aren't going to be rolling dice for many things, so creative license is available.

Also, not writing the next great fantasy novel, so I'm not going to post chapters of stuff, and I don't expect anyone else to either.

We're opening at a nameless bar, on the banks of the Nile River, and this is a place where people who want something come. I'll leave it up to you to figure out what brought you into that cantina

Cosmic Era game, that is going to be starting in Old Cairo and will be dealing with the black market, terrorists, gods, and monsters.

I really like him meeting his fixer for psychopharma

I think Hollen's prize is close to the Cosmic Era for tech level and the like.

What's the lay of the land? Blue's armed with a sniper rifle, but I'm not sure whether the Thrill Killers will be obscured by terrain until they are in machine gun range anyway. If the land's open enough, I could start taking pot shots before they arrive in machine gun range.

Sorry about the delay, brain fart

The Thrill Killers and simply following the turbo tank up the way it came. They are on the same level as the party, and are not on the high ground. Jerome can see through his drone that they are not overly concerned and are advancing in a casual fashion. This would make sense since they know exactly where the tank is, and that it has stopped moving. They will be in range in approximately 10 minutes, as the tank was quite a bit faster than walking horses.

I know we’re rules light here, but here’s a rough idea of Obutsu’s equipment. Cut whatever doesn’t work.

Weapons & armor
VD 10-60 assault weapon
BL.23 mag pistol
Monofilament katana
Standard light armor

Cybernetic enhancements
Synthetic arm, Right (high density synthetic bone and muscle)
Bone lacing
Targeting cybereyes

We may be rules-light, but a description of the equipment is a good idea, as it highlights the narrative routes a character may take.

So, Blue (Tel'Issaire Witherwind) carries the following noteworthy equipment:

*Helios PSG82 laser sniper rifle: accurate, adjustable capacitor charging, high power, hampered by aerosols and chaff
*Glock .45 semi-automatic pistol, high stopping power, low anti-armour efficiency
*Plastic explosive, remote detonators
*A few grenades
*High-end wrist computer with some useful software
*Anti-glare night vision goggles with customisable HUD

There's some bio-mods ordered by Blue's original owner that are worthy of note:
*Boosted immune system (if medical nanobots are in the setting, then those too)
*Boosted liver
*Improved wound healing
*Genetic cleansing (various recessive disease genes removed, overall selection of favourable polymorphisms that reduce disease susceptibility)
*No bone decalcification, eye degeneration, or muscle loss in zero-G.
*Flexible joints
*Reproductive control
*and various cosmetic modifications
