Need to update the character for 8th level.

Could we delay start until Monday? I have an in person convention that I am preparing for this weekend.

I think we already provided the above information in the sign-in spreadsheet. Double data-entry seems inefficient.

"Hey everyone, I am Trusty Trashbot, and I'm here to take out the trash!" Trusty has a mouth on him, which is why it makes perfect sense to send trash-talking bot on a diplomatic mission. He's a spy operative, which means he can disguise himself as any small race -- though he usually turns himself into trash cans and maintenance bots when he's spying.

Other special notes: I will be at the same convention that Bret is. A Monday start sounds great.

Yes, I suppose it is double entry but it does help to track who doesn't dot in after registering on the signup sheet - also as a backup if, somehow something bad happens to the sheet.

Good luck with your weekend con. I've got one as well I'm supposed to be GMing Starfinder at this weekend, but there are a current lack of signups :(

From the description, I'm thinking it is the number of distinct skills that we get successes with that matters. But that is just a guess. Sometimes scenario designers could be more ....open... about the underlying mechanics for these types of encounters. As they often are in stark opposition to other very similar encounters in different scenarios.

Game mechanics should not be hidden. They are the mechanism used to determine the results of a series of actions, sometimes in a very abstract way. There is no reason to hide the rules from the players, and at least one very good reason not to. It runs counter to the cooperative nature that society games are supposed to have. Tough to cooperate when we don’t even know how we are supposed to mechanically achieve success.

Not sure I read it the same way.

"Here is an opportunity to impress the two diplomats. You can attempt one skill check per diplomat to influence their attitude towards you. For Azosin it is: Bluff, Diplomacy, Culture or Profession(Archaeologist). For Myza it is Engineering, Life Science, or a relevant Profession check for biosheres and nanites".

Looks like the usual classic grab bag of 2-3 skills per NPC you can roll, as opposed to needing to hit all of them as individual skills. The more successes the better.

Yes it mentions Kultainen doing Diplomacy, but that could be because the Diplomacy to influence was rolled by Kultainen before it was cued and the GM has allowed the roll to carry forward - Kultainen can now roll the other 'grab bag' on Myza (Engineering, Life Science, or a relevant Profession check).

Personally, my view is that I could do with far less 'impress random NPCs' in scenarios where it seems a bit meaningless to do so. "It isn't MY planet going to hell in a handbasket - it's YOURS and we've been sent here to save it - why do I need to impress you pal?".

Shifty is essentially correct. I took that straight out of the module but not mentioning the DCs.

It's my fault. I was playing Settlers of Catan with my family last night. And even though my starting towns were... not-ideally located... the die just ran hot for me the whole night. I was trading away resource cards for chocolate and still ended up so far ahead of everyone else.

So I think it is dice karma coming back.

So can the emitter be shut down from here so it is no longer jamming signals, or do I need to go to it?

Would it be a Computers or Engineering task to fix the emitters? Obviously the systems are interconnected, otherwise one failure couldn’t cascade to other locations.

I think you said the emitter was the purple thing at A1, but am not sure.

The emitter is definitely the thing at A1. I think if we get the emitter working again, it will stop the jamming, and start effecting the goo (I hope)

Silver Crusade

Human Male | VA | New Zealand | UTC+12| SFS 2-15 | 1-Q1(H)

The module doesn't say so I suspect you can reset the emitter from the control room with a Computers or Engineering check, at least enough to stop the jamming and call for evac.

Trusty also determines it will take the emitter about a minute at least to reboot, but you can now call for emergency evac.

Since we have the codes, couldn’t someone with a Comm unit just send the codes to shut the nanites down?

As for evac, would 4 enercycles be enough to get the group out? I believe it should be.

That might work if you know the frequencies and, assuming enecycles can take pillion passengers, sure.

I would assume we know the frequency because of finding the information. I would suggest making it happen could be a Computers check, although an argument could also be made for too trivial to require a check or an engineering check.

The actual vehicles are Motospheres, a set of four marbles that can each turn into enercycles for an hour. Each enercycle can carry two people, the driver and a passenger.

So we were told that the dragon is vulnerable to electricity and Trusty has used an electric weapon on them.

The thing is I can’t make sense of the reported damage to the dragon. It went from -39 hp to -59 hp after taking 30 electric from Trusty plus presumably falling when it fell through the floor after landing on it and breaking it.

It would really help me follow things if each update you gave the current status of at least the beacon and dragon.

Quick question as well, does the glass floor block hearing? Looking at doing an Inspiring Boost which is language and sense dependent. Need to know if that will work through the glass floor since I can see the target and can either try to yell or send a message via integrated Comm unit.

It looks like Viper is barely up. Has everyone else updated their status either in the header or someplace else I can easily find it?

Silver Crusade

Human Male | VA | New Zealand | UTC+12| SFS 2-15 | 1-Q1(H)

Oooops. I goofed badly. The dragon should be a lot more damaged. And yes, thank you for that suggestion. I'll do that on the next update.

The glass floor would block hearing but given that half of it on the top floor is currently missing, you can inspire anyone on both top and middle floors. Although sending through the comm units should work.
