Thanks! Spiders for the win! Not a mistake then. I always knew they were cool.

Spiders Georg is especially proud of you. :P

Also I may have done the most insane thing I've ever done on a Shadowrun in my last post. Like, sorry in advance to our lovely Mr. Johnson if it just needs like... erasing. Hard U-turn on my part, but she saw the opportunity to hit the EJECT button and go, like, Lady MacBeth here and sometimes references are just the right choice, you know? :3

This is a great goal for Midori and adds some good conflict to her story.

Take 1XP now and another every time you get closer to getting the girls to switch to the Black Mums.

Woop woop! I just hope I'm not setting them up for failure :x Then again, if anyone messes with them, that's what her pistol is for. >:)

@Midori. Do you want to see your character sheet or do you want me to keep it behind the scenes?

I'm a dumb bunny tonight so as long as I can just look at it and admire the shinies, it's probably best you keep it out of my grubby paws. ;)

I am the dumb bunny. You should be able to see your character sheet / PocSec now.

Keep your paws off or you get the rolled up newspaper.

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

I noticed on Michael’s pocsec thread there are some mage and shaman moves are colored and some are not. I assume the colored names are moves Michael knows? If that’s the case then what are the requirements to learn a new move?

Also would you add the $6k NuYen payment for the last run to the pocsec thread? Let me know when we can learn new skills or other character development in game.

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

Mr. Johnson - What kind of drone options exist?  Anything I can afford with my ¥2,700k?

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

In reply to Pacer (msg # 137):

Drone(s) would be an excellent addition to our crew! The changes I requested are piddling in comparison. Maybe a few accessories to her Predator and an extra spell or two which are still not offensive in nature.
In reply to Michael (msg # 136):

As I understand it, the green ones are known, the black ones can be learned on a level up, and the red ones cannot be learned at all.

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

@Pacer - for 1000¥ you can get a Kanmushi (ground drone) or Microskimmer (air drone).

They are small, cheap and almost disposable. Very basic but capable of surveillance or suicide attack.

@Sidewinder - no problem with those spells, just need some time to update the threads.

RL has been *phew*

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

In reply to Mr. Johnson (msg # 140):

No worries! And there is no rush whatsoever for the mundane gear requests. Doubly so because none of them are liable to be used in the near future.

Edit: And RL always comes first. After all, Sidewinders are ambush predators that wait for prey to come within striking distance. And a busy GM never does. So Sidewinder will bury herself in the sand and keep her head poking out until RL puts you in range.

PS But neonatal and juvenile Crotalus cerastes have some insane and more active behaviors. So we’re lucky she’s an adult. But I do recommend y’all look it up.

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

@Mr. Johnson - [Edit] Let me get one Microskimmer (1000¥ for the drone) and two remote cameras (100¥ each) with low-light (100¥), thermal (100¥), and flare protection (100¥) (800¥ for the pair of cameras) (1800¥ spend total).  Correct me if this pricing is wrong.

Pacer's PocSec updated.

Need to dig into the books a bit for stats for Sidewinder's spells.

And here I've been thinking you were Sidewinder like the missile.

... that makes a lot less sense than a snek. 🐍

I'm so dumb. 😂 It's a great name either way! Both you and Pacer chose very à propos names.

Heh, thanks. Now we just need to get to the point where we will actually use them. Which will presumably be after this first job pulling the pair into the shadows.

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

In reply to Pacer (msg # 142):

What's that? An echo? Why can I hear it? Am I a bat?

Ie, if you’ve got the scratch and want to complete the cameras’ visual quadfecta, that’d take ultrasound.

And my chiropteran joke was prolly more “on the nose” than y’all think. A lot of entomophagous bats use ultrasonic echolocation, but vampire bats use infrared sensors on their noses for thermographic vision.

Bat sensory humor! Kills every time!

Edit1: Just an idea that came to mind. A bit of overkill if you ask me, but could add a more exotic sensor to the cameras.

Edit2: Maybe even a quinfecta if you include magnification? Damn, this is getting really expensive really quick. Sticking to your guns ain’t a bad idea.

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

In reply to Sidewinder (msg # 146):

Ultrasound?  Sounds like an awesome upgrade.  Maybe after a successful run I'll have enough scratch to upgrade.

So far the surveillance/comms gear Pacer has:

Radio / Microtransceiver (Encrypted) x 2
Bug scanner (Basic)
Directional mic (Basic)
Binoculars (w/ thermal) [Pacer also has cyber eyes with low-light vision and flare protection, so the binoculars are somewhat basic.
Remote camera (x2) [low-light, thermal, flare protection] [New toys he picked up for this gig]

(These are all in the duffel bag he reveals to you, along with a HK227 submachine gun with sound suppressor).

And now also a Microskimmer flying drone.

Maybe Sidewinder can use some spiritual guidance to help determine where best to deploy these resources?

Re: OOC XP & Nuyen

Sidewinder:
she says just above a whisper

This got me thinking that the pair could Go Shopping to add subvocal microphones to their microtransceivers. Dunno what Pacer’s funds are like, but barely-audible comms would indubitably come in handy. Though Sidewinder could always snag one for herself for now if Pacer doesn’t have 500¥ lying around. Even one-way subvocalization could help.
