The safe is pretty hefty (it's long enough to contain a rifle, after all). It's probably possible but would take a lot of strength or some equipment to do it.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

I don't think it's been stated what happened to them.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

That will depend on your plan. Are you guys evacuating as ordered? Or are you going to try and save the Reactor?


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

May I suggest a Tech-Use or Low Gothic roll to try and decipher more of the message? There are several heavy duty reactors within the hive, as Hieronymous would know, that run the the power for that section of the Hive.
The closest one to the attack site is two levels below the Mechanicaus shrine, and therefore reasonably close to your location if you can navigate the tunnels.

That's the worst time to fight a dragon too. Because you don't go in there without some pressing other business.

In fairness, you'd quickly find a place to go in that event.

It's less you won't die alone - while Aurora did encounter a monster designed for the whole party, it was in it's character enough for it to play with her, and her character is tough enough that she could live - and more the effort it takes me to run too many scenes at once. Unfortunately, my work life has been hectic recently, and I'm very tired at the moment. Combined with some other bits...

Which is all entirely my problem. You guys are free to split up as you feel maximises your efforts and fits your characters. I won't punish you for it.

...the dragon was always meant to be in the Garage bathroom stall.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

So what you're saying is that the explosives would have been set for about the time you guys left, and if it cooks off anything on the transport it would also catch the badguys?

...sounds like it was set to Dramatic Moment, yeah.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

No one gave me a specific time for the bombs to go off, so they're set to 'Suitably dramatic moment.'


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

No map yet - this is not a fight you would likely win. But it is an option and a possibility if you guys wanna try it. They're still 80 metres away from you all.


I have not read through all 2740 posts here, because I'm sleepy, but awesome. So if I ask a question that's already been asked, we apologize. Not, you know profusely. Just a little.

When my Glorious Ascension begins and the undead rise, what's your zombie survival plan? Assume the Romero rules - slow, dim, but everyone who dies turns and a bite is lethal.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Apparently, the Shadow has feelings from nearly getting its ass handed to it and is now in for sweet, ass-kicking revenge..


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Yup.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

If you wanna rebuild Remington (probably after the scene in the burnt out building) then I'm happy with that.

...and if you want advise on Spheres, boy have you come to the right place. Our dear own Cerise is something of an expert on the subject, and I have a pretty solid understanding of the system too.

I think the other to recall is that all templates are not made equal. Nurai's, for example, comes with some nice passive buffs, but she hasn't been able to use a lot of the abilities, as they require Beloveds. And so far the only character whose stuck around is Aurora. And some are stronger - Aurora toned back her character recently because of how potent the Template she has is.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

You'll need to roll a Demolition check, or Intelligence halved.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

The only problem is your gear, since Acid Fog melts that too, and the -2 penalty to damage and to hit it inflicts.


Would a Vigilante be suitable for this campaign?


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

You can hit two on either side (left and right) and the guy in the middle. It's not a huge space.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

I can't imagine a grenade qualifying as an edged weapon, no matter how you cut it - even shrapnel isn't always that sharp. Especially fresh from the explosion.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

OK, to confirm before I continue - Praetus is entering the command deck, Vasyl is in the troop area, and everyone else is waiting at the manhole cover?


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

There aren't going to be standard, no, but they are meant to be a challenge. These things might show up again, depending on some choices you make.

But yes, the fight is reasonably close to being done.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Totally Terrified Answer:
About 8 fee up.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Answer:
Absolutely. There inky nature is more to explain certain abilities and immunities than anything else. Toss one and it will remain solid.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Have fun and good luck.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Lug has decided to leave the game, and so his character will be making a dramatic sacrifice to save you all from explosions.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

No, I completely forgot about the 1d10 thing. Blame the fever. And having to do a bout of Initative in a Pathfinder game too.

Praetus wouldn't have been close enough to attack.

Also, does anyone know where the T3 one went?

Praetus moved into position, blocking the ladder. It was hard to tell if the creatures who had been setting the traps could be surprised...but watching someone run up to the ladder covered in detpacks and cord certainly seemed to startle them.

Still, not enough to stop them draw there side arms and begin firing. There laspistols didn't look any better than the guns did, but they didn't seem like they wouldn't

To Hit (Praetus): 1d100 ⇒ 1
Damage - Head - Pen 0: 1d10 + 2 ⇒ (5) + 2 = 7

To Hit (Vasyl): 1d100 ⇒ 14
Damage - Body - Pen 0: 1d10 + 2 ⇒ (3) + 2 = 5

To Hit (Lothar): 1d100 ⇒ 58 - Miss


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

An odd gas started comming out. Sadly you guys haven't severed them all.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

I think that's a weakness in solo games - if it doesn't occur to you, it won't. Unfortunately this module is much more...linear than the last two, with the assumption you'll do the right thing to move the plot along. In this case the examination of the items is meant to create a question that can only be answered in the next location. I can have a team find out where that will be, but the module assumes the party will want to look at this stuff themselves.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Map


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Three enemy troopers, bloated and coated in vines, there armour bulging, stood next to the ladder leading up the plaza. The three were slowly rigging the ladder with explosives. Lasguns, coated in rust and mold, sat against the wall.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Double file should be doable.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Sorry for being slow. Other than hunting down divination magic is there anything else you would like to do with the body or the pile of items?


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Sorry for the slow replies. Finally becomming a healthy paragon of humanity once more. Aenarius can have four hit points back, and the Stealth Check would be Ordinary (+10)


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Almost identical to the corrupted Tower Guard you saw earlier.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Yes.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

No, it was meant in the idea of 'How likely are a bunch of Judge Dread cops to have it?' than common item availability. So long as folks don't get creative in ways to grab a few thousand thrones worth of gear, of course.

If Gutterforged armour is about in the books, then yeah, it can be taken. That -15 agility will hurt.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Sorry, I'm trying to be less 'And here's what you do next' with this one. You do have a few clues, however.

- The car. A strange car was watching the fight. Jim got a close up look at it, it's licence plate and punctured its tire, but hasn't shared any of that with the group yet.

- The Sword. Researching the sword further, at the local library or with another resource, might lead to something that can help find it. Cottin can also see it, regardless of the form its currently in.

- The King. Whoever it was just died, so looking into recent deaths might led to something useful.

- The Videos. Someone is making sure these clips are getting online, and staying online. Perhaps there's a clue within them.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Sorry, that's what I was trying to explain - it was not found on her body. It was found in the pile of items that discovered next to her. There was a whole load - more than she could carry - discovered next to the corpse.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

96 and up always misses. But yes, as you are finding, modifiers are the key to working well in Dark Heresy.

Of course, there are downsides. Get close? They can charge. Full auto? How much ammo you got, because hit or miss that just chewed through a good chunk. If it's big? It'll hit hard.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Better to roll shots separately in Dark Heresy, as I take toughness and armour off each of those (making a lot less than 105 in damage) and that's easier with seperate shots.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Lug - You hit the limit - +60 is the max you can modify something. But yes, that's a lot of hits on the thing. The full ten, assuming you're using an autogun. Wanna roll damage on those? If not I'll do so when I post next, to keep things up to speed.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Don't worry about making mistakes - we all learn. Remember I put a bunch of useful info in the campaign tab if you need to quickly look stuff up, and if you find you need something I can always add more.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Close. The only thing you missed was that, with semi-auto burst, you get an extra hit for every two degrees of success, not one.

Yeah, these are relatively close quarters, although not as much as you might think. With the relatively slow movement speed if you're doing something else it takes a while to get around in Dark Heresy.

The Gunship (actually a slightly over sized Blight Drone, for the curious) is hovering around 10ft off the ground, so it can get a clear shot at the Arbites up the steps and over the heads of its own side. It can be hurt, but you guys aren't likely to kill it. But if you annoy it enough the Precinct can pop it with a Lascannon while it pays attention to you. This is more a case of simply getting everyone used to the Fight mechanics than a real battle.

The obstacles are basically fallen rubble, so two of three feet tall. Enough to provide a little cover while being able to fire over them.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

That's fine. I'd like to keep a rate of about one post a day if at all possible, especially during combat, but life happens. If it becomes an issue I'll bot you.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Not yet. You haven't really been anywhere with much fighting yet.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Never Mind, I'm quite quick. You should be able to edit the sheet - simply delete the letter marking your location and move it to a new position as needed.

If something isn't clear (or it doesn't work) give me a yell. Again, sorry it's a touch basic. Graphics are not something I do well.

Once you decide on your battle plan I'll pop you guys on and we'll roll initative.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

Erkan - Did you see my intro? I've seen shorter short stories than that thing. Always go for more detail when in doubt.

Vasyl - Anything you might find useful. Common skill checks that use more than you standard skills, paticular attacks, whatever. The info there is what I need, so go nuts.

Oh, and just to be clear - when I present situations like 'you can do this,or maybe this, or perhaps that' you guys are always free to take a third option. I don't mind - sometimes those are the most fun. If it isn't possible I'll explain that, but it never hurts to ask. The choices I present are simply the ones that I think will work best.

EDIT: Oh, I'll have a (basic, sadly) battle map for you guys in a bit. I'll be hearing to work in an hour a few minutes, so it'll likely be up in two or three hours time.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

I look like a mighty Viking! Not any characters I play, though, oddly.

OK folks, can those of you who haven't done so yet please pop your basic stats in the Class or Gender section on your profile? Something similar to Aenarius, Erkan, Hieronymous or Praetus. It makes my life a little simpler when running fight scenes and the like if I can quickly spot stuff like that.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

All fair in love and war. Mostly war.

Feel free to finish tweaking wargear now that you're more familiar with the situation you're in. Once the first fight starts, though, it's locked in.

And yes, once you post in Gameplay you'll find this game added to your campaigns tab (click your own username or my account to find the campaigns tab itself).


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

First post is up. Those of you who work for the Inquisition will have been here to investigate certain rumours, and have literally just arrived from the transport. Those of you who are not part of the Inquisition just yet will be there for your own reasons. I hopefully gave everyone a reason to be present. As I mention, regardless of which you fall into, you'll be working together shortly.

Also, sorry for the length. I tend to get wordy when I get dramatic.


Male. Mostly. Human. Mostly. Archaeologist

All shall become clear. The beggining will be In Media Res - Because if we're playing Dark Heresy we might as well use iffy Latin - but you'll be Planetside. I'll leave it up to each of you to explain why you're where you are, but there will be plenty of reasons.
