Red Net (OOC)

Recommended Posts

OOC for this!

 

Featuring Synapse and Replica. 

 

@Cubismo, I will assume Replica has repaired her bullet wounds. If you fancy any temporary glitches from the repairs, feel free to add them in as temporary complications for this thread.

So you do have some time on route to do some knowledge / research checks, although as noted in previous thread there is nothing on Red Dawn or Mother board, other than the fact that there are no internet references linking either of those two terms with Darwin - X, suggesting an extremely powerful deletion.

 

You do have the medical and physical data on the Russians as new information. Enough for Synapse to make a knowledge (Beh Sciences) taking 10: if made, she can

 

Basically confirm her suspicions that this was a mind wipe. She will also recognise that these are well conditioned, well drilled, professional soldiers - who have undergone extreme training. In any case, this gives you a +2 bonus to future psionic rolls on them, and also any social skills

So for the purposes of PLOT, Synapse will, to a degree, succeed. But what else?

 

Make a mind reading power roll, with a +2 bonus from reading and understanding the psych profiles (as above)

 

DC 10 (Automatic)

The Sleeper is indeed behind this. More so, you bring up some memories of being trained in a secret, and small, facility in Moscow [complete with enough memories to actually go to this small building]. The soldiers themselves were all previously special forces trained - legitimately by the Russian government, but they then appeared to have been side tracked through mental manipulation into a programe lead by the Sleeper. 

 

DC 20

 

There are memories of Doctor Zero inspecting and medically examining the soldiers, and the Sleeper giving them patriotic speeches whilst simultaenously altering their minds. There were probably two dozen soliders, selected from special forces, and driven to extremes of training and brain washing by a combination of the Sleeper mentally pushing them, and Doctor Zero ensuring top physiologicla health - although importantly, not Darwin-X - for they seem to have run out of the virus!

 

DC30

 

You find lingering memories of the meeting of the Red Dawn itself, that the Sleeper has tried extremely hard to surpress and wipe...five figures, including the Sleeper - its leader, and Doctor Zero - whom you recognise

Synapse is going to use Extra Effort to give her +2 on her Telepathy (for +16 total to her roll).  She gets a 26, so close.  Still pretty good.

Can Replica use a Knowledge (technology) check to see if the plane can be still be flown after getting one its wings set on fire?

Im not sure if it needs a check! Both Replica and Synapse are smart enough to realise the situation is serious, but the Plane could be landed. Landed safely is a more difficult feat!

Not really necessary; the pilot is PL 1 at best and armed with a tiny pistol, so you can effectively feel free to narrate your action. Synpase could even beat him hand to hand, frankly! However, your action may need a roll if its not a direct combat thing. 

 

However, Synapse and Replica are of course in a time sensitive pickle!

Okay, Synapse will then hit the co-pilot with a rank 10 Mental Blast, which is a DC 25 Will save if you want to roll.

Assuming that stopping the fuel leakage doesn't require a roll in out itself Replica's going to use the Jack of all Trades to make a roll on Pilot and try to land the plane.

 

Pilot: Making a landing: 1d20+8 17

 

Here's to hoping that doesn't get us killed...

Thats enough to knock out the pilot. 

 

As for the plane....

 

TOughness DC 25 Saves for the crash please! This is lethal damage, too. Synapse will have time to get her forcefield up, of course. If you do think of anything to do in those final seconds, please add it in to the narration. 

 

There is of course a possibility that the pilot and the co-pilot might die. I would like to leave that to your feelings...I do not casually throw about death of course, and there is the possibility of some cool medical rolls to stabilise them. On the one hand that may feel too brutal, on the other, it may serve to punctuate just how frightening the Sleeper is (frankly he is the most terrifying villain I have ever made for me) and propel the hereos. 

 

Let me know your thoughts (and your rolls!)

Hold on, I would think there would be at least a few combat rounds before we would crash (plans don't drop that fast),a s Synapse can try something to avoid the crash, or at least mitigate it.

So, Synapse is going to use Extra Effort to power stunt the following off her main array:

 

Move Object 16  (Extras: Area; Flaws: Range 0)

 

This will give her enough strength to lift a 747 as a light load (with 50 tons of lifting to spare). 

 

I have been planning a edit which was going to rework her array anyway to fold her telekenetics into the array, as I figure she has been working on it over the past few years and has gained in power with it.

How does the extra effort play out in your head-understanding of Synapse, Thevshi? The rules look slighty fuzzy on this so its up to you - long enough to fly the plane to Moscow? To crash it safely? or to pilot to some air field nearby?

So, what type of roll might you want?  Craft: Chemical?  Using Disable Device in reverse to create a bomb?  Kn: Technology or Physical Science?

I think given the combined INT of Synapse and Replica, their skills, and the fact that the WEST plane is very well equipped you can narrate that however you wish. The more interesting part, I think, is to make it look like a crash. It will of course look like one at first glance, but the issue is how long - if at all - the forensic examiners will take to determine it is "Fishy" ( by fishy I do not mean that it was you guys deliberately blowing it up, but there are some questionmarks such as lack of bodies, inclonclusive debris, etc). 

 

I think thats best done by a straight INT roll (I am open to suggestion!)

DC 10 the examiners will take a day (for you guys, automatic!)

DC 15 the examiners will take a week

DC 20 the examiners will take a month

DC 25 they cannot accurately determine, ever, if it was "fishy"

 

I doubt you will need more than a week to get to Moscow, but...who knows? :)
