And just today my manager put in his 2 weeks notice and was allowed to leave post haste.  Mortgage sales reps and managers tend to be shown the door the day they give their 2 week notice.  Can't have that sabotage thing going on.

Guess I can now post from work again.  :lol:

Oh, don't worry, the stuff you could get to from the inside was minor, and you had a week to fix it.  Wait until you get access to the outside of the ship, then you'll need to make rolls just to identify the parts that are wrecked, much less fix them  ;)

OOC: would it be possible for Toulaan to use his psionic abilities to meld with the computer during a battle and add some bonus to the operator of that system. Kind of smooth the internal working of that system for greater efficiency?

After flipping through some of the Psionic abilities again, I would think that you could probably use Electrical Control, or possibly Electrical Melding to do something like this.  Probably making a roll with similar modifiers to the other Combat rolls.  Nicholas, what do you think?  The description for the Electrical Control skill is geared towards keeping malfunctioning equipment working, or causing malfunctions, or interfering with a devices functioning, so what about using it to boost the performance of an already functioning device?  I'm not sure how you would break down how this would work for the various tiers, I'd say perhaps the standard sort of +5 per tier bonus.

The problem i see with "boosting" equipment is that it stresses out the equipment who probably was not designed to wield that much stress. You should maybe include a breakdown chance after end of use , minimal for low boost to 99.99% for really big ones.

It is a possible application of Electrical Control. If pushed, I would allow it starting at Tier 2 (bonus of +5) rising to Tier 5 (bonus of +20). However, I would require the activator to make Engineering maneuvers at the difficulty levels given for "Tinkering with Equipment". Failure or fumbling is an opportunity for a malfunction roll, with a d100-20 roll on the Malfunction Table if a malfunction occurs.

But to be honest, I'd have to be pushed to allow it.

Best wishes,
Nicholas

You'd have to limit the size of the equipment that can be boosted ...
but that's more the role of Psion scaling :P

Ack!  The forum spontanteously stopped sending me e-mail notifications again so I almost let this adventure slip my mind.  At least it looks like it hasn't gone far ;)  I'm back paying attention again now, though :D

It's done that to me a couple of times too.  I figure nobody has posted anything, then finally check after a few days and there's three or four items.

Hi,
I just wanted to say that I'm really sorry for posting so sparsely. My work keeps me extremely busy at the moment and I don't see an end to that until Christmas and then it's probably only for the holiday.
So, although it has been fun reading and posting, I will have to reduce my appearances here to reading. I'm sorry if I caused any inconvenience but it is just not manageable with the load of work at the moment.

Enjoy gaming.
Best Wishes
munchy

That's perfectly understandable, I'll figure out how to phase the Medic (and Zaras) out once you get onto the big ship.  Feel free to post in this OOC area any time the urge hits.

The doc would be happy to fall out with him.  It would be a good opprtunity to see how a vibroknife works in a kata style ...

Just to clarify my reasoning on the selection of the away team...
Dutch and Phill are the main combat oriented guys which gives them a chance to do some fighting.  Prescott's the engineer type and he's going to examine the ship.  Zaras and the medic are going so our GM can kill them off.   :P

Reegus needs to monitor the area from our ship.
Toulaan is keeping a feel out for possible things of concern.
The Doctor gets to stay behind and get drunk....  :D

Precisely what I had in mind.


My apologies for my posting rate declining so dramatically.  The company (Lehman Brothers) that bought my company is hyper senstive about security and this site is blocked as well as all my web-based email.  I am now stuck posting from home with gives me about 1 chance a week to post.  I'll try and keep posting as I can each week.  If I can't keep up that schedule I'll make arrangements with Brent.

For now I'm still in and will keep Toulaan helping the group as much as possible.

My posting for the next few weeks will be pretty sporadic as well, I've got all sorts of Festive events to go to, in fact, I probably won't get my Thursday posting done tonight, although I'll try and at least get you landed.

Okay, I'm back from vacation and should be able to put together an I.C. posting tomorrow night once I've had a chance to catch up on emails and other fun things.

Welcome back, indeed!  Reegus is tanned, ready and rested to resume this doomed... uh, "exciting" flight! :)
