for the elves in the group...

1) When in a calm state, they can tap their vast reserve of knowledge. This allows them a huge plus to any check to know just something about any field of knowledge and lore. In calm times, this will extend to languages as well. (Those they don’t know, they can often figure out or make a good guess at).

2) Given some time to reflect on a situation, they can perform any “non modern” action without negative modifiers for lack of skill. Example: They might have ridden a horse sometime in the last three thousand years, so they just have to spend a moment to remember how. They won’t know how to pilot a new fangled Steam Jack because they are a recent invention.

Chaosmark: I love coding, even if I don't do nearly enough of it these days. There aren't any jobs in the area I currently live in that are more than service industry jobs, and the local University and Community College are too strapped for cash to hire on anyone beyond the necessary in recent years.

Strolen: I entered college as a declared Comp Engineer, then switched to CS by the end of my first programming class. Part of that was a very, very persuasive professor who was head of the department, part of that was falling in love with programming, and I will admit to a smidgen of glee at the idea of skipping out on Calc 3. Fascinatingly enough, despite needing Calc 3 in order to graduate as an Undergrad in Comp Engineering, I didn't need to have it in order to get a Masters  :thumbup:

Pariah: YES. THAT. I can never remember the names of sounds. It's one of those things that I keep telling myself I'll dedicate some time to - learning all the proper linguistic concepts and categorized sounds - but it always gets pushed aside for the newest "oooh, shiny!" that I run across.

Thanks for the welcome, all of you.

Carnegie noted the new time stamp and frowned, there was something that seemed amiss about the whole thing.

She focused on the contents of the drawer instead, with her finger she traced the letters inscribed on the cup and her eye brows shot up in surprise. "A goblet offa king...?" She mumbled. But what king would wish for such subjects. She put the cup and the plastic card in her backpack and squinted in the gloom trying to make out the text in the books. "Uhm, does anybudy 'ave a light?" She asked, looking around at her companions.

Should we treat outside of combat as combat as well? Like one action that requires your full focus = 1 standard action, and only one per post, then wait for others?

I thought we were just looting, so I just wanted it done with so we could explore, but I guess we ARE technically already exploring. :P

Okay, I'll take 1 Trauma pack, and roll you for another one Sil? Beat (15) unmodified.


That time stamp stuff isn't saying me anything... Except maybe that whoever did maintenance on it is long dead? For the thing to be so way off, that would suggest a lack of maintenence in itself.  Since we didn't use any IDs, it would be likely that we would have triggered an alert, which seems consistent with the second latest entry.

Datestamp                                Event              ID
2193.               *ALERT*         NA   
2193.               *ALERT*         NA
2193.               Egress            87012 a
2193.¢.45               *ALERT*         NA
2193.               Ingress           87012 a
2193.               Egressssssss  87010 b
2193.               Ingress           45611 c
2193.               Egress            87010 b
2193.02.21.╔0.11.45               Egress            45611 d
2193.               Ingress           86112 e
2184.               Egress            45611 d
2181.               Ingress           86112 e

However that was 2 hours ago, either we spent a really long time punching in the numbers on that door EDIT: val said it didn't take that long, or the alert could be for someone else entering or possibly leaving without an ID, or trying to do something else unsupported 2 hours prior to our arrival. Egress means somebody left and Ingress that someone arrived, so they've been coming and going, but not very frequently. 4 Days ago there was another alert, which could possibly be consistent with us killing the janitor-droid maybe?

5 Times the door has let someone out, but only 4 entrances, which could also suggest that they're still out there, or maybe that it was the robo-dog.
As for the IDs, I labeled them from a to e, and it seems bogey c is the only inconsistent one that only entered, but never left again, I would say outsider, but since it has an ID code... Hmm, thoughts?

EDIT 2: Seems I made a mistake, I mistook minutes for hours.

Also, whooo!  :D

Autumn took a breath before replying, "Roger that, my claws should allow me to climb and my injuries should allow it before I find myself incapacitated." She pulled a stim patch from her emergency medical kit and applied it to the inside of her thigh where the fur was thinnest, the rush of endorphin's and painkillers mixing with the combat drugs to give her a temporary surge of energy.

"Just watch my back while I climb up and retrieve her, I won't be able to fight while getting her down."

Autumn nodded, before realizing the motion was wasted over the radio,  the pain of her own injuries intensifying now the adrenaline charge of combat was ebbing. "Glad to hear you're both still alive, also what's an Ewok?" She pocketed the teeth and fangs, taking quick stock of her surroundings and attempting to calculate the path back to her friends before deicing to simply follow the tail of Kotiri and Hyena blood to their location.

"I'll be there in a few minutes, tell the doc to get the med bay prepped I'm going to certainly need it. Again."

Jerome was happy to hear her voice. He had forgotten such devices existed apparently.

"Jerome reporting. Still breathing, and our good doctor is alive, though arborized.  Ewok style trap got her."

Asha briefly examined the magazines before tossing them in her backpack, the springs might prove handy in the future or the magazines themselves if she could locate a compatible weapon somewhere in the interior, she paused as the  glint of metal drew her attention, carefully tiling the skull forward so it could relinquish its contents into her out stretched gloved hand.

Carnegie pulled out her 'skeleton key' and pushed it between the frame and the drawer, up high near the lock to try and release the catch. 

The metal gave slightly, enough to accomplish her task, and the catch released with an audible 'pwang'.  At that moment, a new entry scrolled across the screen:

2193.               *ALERT*         NA       

Inside the drawer were a number of books in reasonable condition, though the light was too poor to make out their contents - looked technical. A ceramic cup with 'King of Idiots' inscribed upon it, And a blue plastic card with number on it.


As Asha searched, she found that not only was the skull smashed, but the entire ribcage had been shattered with enough force that some ribs had punched through the back of the suit.  That was no mean accomplishment, for the fabric of the suit seemed to feel quite durable.  It carried no cards, but two empty, very long magazines for a pistol or more likely an SMG. No weapons were nearby and there were some signs this corpse had been previously looted.  Then Asha noticed something metallic inside the shattered remains of the skull.
