@E:PL UK

I don't want to speak for anyone at the moment so i will hold fire on more responses until Mr Hill can decide if he wants to send a watcher.

@E:PL Chi Town

Likewise I'll wait for Aelias or Jess to make a response, if we don't hear anything soon then I'll give you the break down of the comms traffic (hopefully without having to write it out in its entirety (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif) )

Oh my god, I'm so sorry, yeah I've got finals, but the way the last post was written sounded like it was focusing more on Ears' character, giving him a bit of the spotlight while Saint stands unable to think of the best course of action. While Sport/Adrian hands off the excess cash, she was just gonna stand there, but if you need her take then I'll get to it. Again, my apologies, finals have been a bear to worry about, but I'll put something up shortly.

@SoyKaf: Hey, no prob, real life's real life. Hope your finals go well. That's more important than any game. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

@OGDWD: Guess even KE, block-headed as they may be sometimes be, should recognise that people who where absent, seeing a doctor and such, and who have to be told what had happened won't be of any interest in this investigation. So, I guess it's Ok if we just tell Adrian and Saint out of that place and into some 24/7 diner or something without any further hassle and then put the action on hold till SoyKaf has more free time, right?

Good luck with the exams! Hope it all goes well...I know to my cost what devoting too much time to fun stuff can do to work that really needs to be done (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif) We'll still be here when you are done (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I still keep checking in. I've read the IC a few times, then didn't really know what to put, then got distracted by other things like work. Plus my home PC is broken at the mo so I'm at 50% uptime. If I can think of what to do I'll post soon. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

tl:dr kill summer with thor shot? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif) jk.

This might result in a paradox shift that destroys the universe (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) ...she's talking to Prospero and Fractal on the 17th, and is alive enough to talk to Balefire in June!

I've been back through the IC thread (I got to page 36 anyway) and I've compiled a brief timeline of key timestamp dates. It's by no means complete (particularly the Fortune's Forecast bits) so any additional stuff people want me to include I will. I will also put a copy at the very beginning of the thread which we can keep updating as the IC progresses.

April 15th - Silk, Khalil, Siran and Robert are extracting the Captain of the Henry VIII

April 15th - The Fre∑dom hacker tribe is attacked by corp forces

April 16th - The end of the SKs. Ember dies as does Demon. Copperhead and Dealer make it out. Sirene goes free.

April 17th /18th - Fortune’s Forecast events. Car/head bomb. Attack on gambling den. Bloodbath at Everett Medical Centre. Summer ‘kidnapped’ (?!?)

April 17th - Summer meets Fractal and Prospero having sent runners to help following the attack on the Fre∑dom hacker tribe

May 5th - Copperhead is training with Dr Finney in the Stillwater enclave

May 5th - Anselm (Mr Hill) meets the Abbot following the attack on Gemeaux in an alley in Marseilles

May 8th - Silk meets Aria, Balefire is being brought back together

May 19th - Gemeaux, Mr Hill, Tsubaki & Mordred are trying to get the Collots (Oliver & Luc) to Clearwater

June 12th - Summer comes to Silk with info that will lead to them to the Sintec facility

June 14th - Balefire assault the Sintec facility

June 27th - Argent hires Ælias to lead the group into Chicago to help get Katie and Jon to Stillwater

June 27th - Dealer & Copperhead leave Seattle from a Vory warehouse

July 3rd - Copperhead arrives in Chicago, the others follow shortly afterwards. Dealer fails to make the meet

July 8th - Copperhead, Ælias, Jess are trekking through Chicago to reach Blackwater

We'll fudge that so that you sent a watcher to a mutually known location then! She did say "you know where I am" so let's assume you do (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Having decided that matrix comms aren't secure it's the only way she can help you out...GM talking himself out of a self dug hole lol

Would you also like to split up the fortunes forecast timeline into its constituent parts? I'll then copy that info into the first post!??!

Assuming BG count of 1, Copper is going to try and summon a F2 beast spirit (optional power - venom):

Conjuring 3 + Magic 2 = (5d6.hits(5)=2)
Spirit resists (normally would be with 2 dice but not sure whether the BG count adds here so rolled 3): Spirit (3d6.hits(5)=1) = 2nd die was hit so only 1 service either way!
Resist 2S(2P if force counts as 3 due to BG count) Drain: Cha + Will 9 = 9d6.hits(5)=6 - LOL, Snake is looking out for her!
Note that the BG count turns the crappy F2 spirit into an even crappier F1 spirit!

Then takes two shots with shotgun (no recoil due to foregrip) but deduct any dice for range, lighting (has natural thermo and low light from goggles), etc.:
Shotgun 4 + Agi 3 + smart 2 = 9d6.hits(5)=2, 9d6.hits(5)=5, base damage 7P, -1 AP

1 down, lots to go (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ork.gif)

Would you (and Jess) care to make 10 or so attack rolls and a similar number of defense rolls? I'll give you the chance to go full defense if it looks like there's some serious flak coming your way but your armour and body should take the brunt of the attacks without too much trouble...promise (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ork.gif)

Shotgun attack rolls:
Shotgun 4 + Agi 3 + Smartlink 2 = 9d6.hits(5)=6, 9d6.hits(5)=2, 9d6.hits(5)=3, 9d6.hits(5)=5, 9d6.hits(5)=0, 9d6.hits(5)=1, 9d6.hits(5)=3, 9d6.hits(5)=2, 9d6.hits(5)=3, 9d6.hits(5)=3 - no glitches

Dodge rolls:
Agi 3 + Dodge 2 = 5d6.hits(5)=2, 5d6.hits(5)=1, 5d6.hits(5)=4, 5d6.hits(5)=1, 5d6.hits(5)=1, 5d6.hits(5)=2, 5d6.hits(5)=3, 5d6.hits(5)=0, 5d6.hits(5)=2, 5d6.hits(5)=1 - roll 5 (1 hit) and roll 8 (0 hits) are both glitches. She's not so good at dodging (IMG:style_emoticons/default/frown.gif)

Soak rolls (ballistic):
Body 6 + Armor 15 (combat 8 + FF 4 + dermal 2 + troll 1) + cyber arms 4* = 25d6.hits(5)=9, 25d6.hits(5)=3, 25d6.hits(5)=6, 25d6.hits(5)=7, 25d6.hits(5)=12, 25d6.hits(5)=10, 25d6.hits(5)=10, 25d6.hits(5)=11, 25d6.hits(5)=12, 25d6.hits(5)=6 - no glitches

Soak rolls (impact):
Body 6 + Armor 10 (combat 6 + FF 1 + dermal 2 + troll 1) + cyber arms 4* = 20d6.hits(5)=5, 20d6.hits(5)=11, 20d6.hits(5)=4, 20d6.hits(5)=8, 20d6.hits(5)=4, 20d6.hits(5)=3, 20d6.hits(5)=8, 20d6.hits(5)=8, 20d6.hits(5)=6, 20d6.hits(5)=4 - no glitches

* by RAW cyberlimb armor adds to total (but feel free to knock last 4 off if you rule otherwise).

Yes, armour is added - better hope you have a good stun track as stuff that doesn't penetrate goes straight there instead (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ork.gif)

Will go through the rolls soon and try and get a post up later today or tomorrow. I'm hoping we'll get some action from Jess too so that I can combine the posts.

Can you remind me how many IPs you have?

Just the one, her improved reflexes spell lock went 'poot' due to BG count. When bad dudes start shooting back she will take cover - so you can knock 2 dice of the end of any rolls after that. If she gets pinned down, she will switch to BF (another -2 due to uncompensated recoil) and hose the general area using the weedy little spirit as a spotter.

If I don't hear anything from OGDWD or Mr J by tomorrow I'll move the E:PL posts along again, just want to give them some chance to react. Copperhead's doing quite well by herself in Chi Town (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Is it possible to simply follow the trail, or do I need to use a Track program? Welcome back, by the way.

Trace User is an extended test with threshold 10, right?

Computer (5) + Track (5)

http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3518497/

Critical glitched right before pulling it off. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dead.gif) Assuming that the first task still stands, and no one lost a virtual eye, I'm going to give it another shot.

http://invisiblecastle.com/roller/view/3518502/

Made it in 4 complex actions. Or 8, counting the first extended test.

actually couple things, the target number is 16 (stealth rating). and also you forgot to account for diminishing returns (-1d6 per attempt) that is in play for this thread (optional rule sr4a). So go ahead and reroll
