The OOC thread.
I'm thinking of joining this, but there's a question of continuity currently keeping my mind from latching on to a decent way to do it. You see, from what I can tell this is set prior to Terhune (i.e Bel) finishes setting up his shop, which puts it prior to Bel and Exile meeting up again.
Then again I could get a bit of mileage out of my Morph capability, though I'd have to figure out a little bit there as well since that'd mean turning up as someone other than Exile.
In any case, the clock's about to strike midnight so I'd better get to bed and try to get some sleep.
I don't see this as necessarily being set before Jos's shoppe is set up; even once it gets up and running, he wouldn't pass up an opportunity for some (hopefully) quick capital. His antiques shoppe is his 'legitimate' source of income, but in no way his only one.
Am I right in assuming this has grind to a halt due to Warmonger's absence?
I'd say it's more due to the absence of everyone except you & I. We're the only ones who've posted in it in the past three weeks.
Geez3r? Kavos? Warmonger? WhiteDrag0n-24? zero21? Where y'all at?
Hey don't look at me. I check the site every day, (most times a number of times every day.) I just haven't logged in because none of the games i'm in have moved.
You can always post something. Players here need to be proactive, not just reactive.
Oh I wasn't having a go at anyone, and I know that, I've been busy and haven't had the energy to start anything myself. I was just letting you know I was still buzzing around, and as to why I hand't posted anything as of late. :)
I thought everything was dead there for a while.
Now that I see people are still interested, I will plough ahead.
Oh and thier was whispering going on in this thread, some of you might have been able to hear it, so listen checks.
also Malice, may have been able to pick up a radio transmition as well.
Got a 15 for a Notice roll, probably didn't hear quite was what whispered. Might have heard that there was whispering though.
I'll see about an IC post in the morning since the clock's about to hit midnight over here.
Ember got a 19 (I'm not sure if Ultra-hearing adds anything to that.)
Malice got a 21 so he probably heard something.
I'll wait until I know the results of the Notice before making an IC post.
This whispering took place while you were talking. As such, Exile you didn't notice anything. Kavros you heard quiet words being spoken, aparently about which teams you were to be placed on, and the static click and high pitched squeel of radio signal. Malice you heard all that and the source of the sound: Mr. Big.
Notice check for Belphegor: 19.
Also, please remember what I said about posting as your minions, WD.
I need a little input on the radio jammer.
Malice can take a 10 on both of the checks required for an invention and wind up with 14 points to mess around with, requiring 70 hours total. Or conversely, by taking a -5 on the checks I would wind up with 9 points to mess around with, that takes 22.5 hours to create.
For the invention itself I was thinking of something along these lines:
Obscure 11- (Radio effects) Extra: Area - Burst (+1); Flaw: Touch Range; PF: Selective, Extended x2 (275ft radius)
OR the cheap version:
Obscure 5 (Radio effects) Extra: Area - Burst (+1); Flaw: Touch Range; PF: Selective, Extended x3 (250ft radius)
Actually I noticed that no saving throw is involved so the cheap version is just as good as the expensive version.
If anyone can figure out a better way to do it, or any mistakes I made, let me know.
Belphegor notices the same as Ember w/o the electronic squeel. As for the hierling thing we talked about, I will make an effort in the future, but I did kinda set precidence here. Sorry
As for the radio jammer, what does the flaw "touch" mean? You have to be in the area of effect?
Flaw/Touch means it's always centered on him.
And Obscure is already area by default (and uses the extended range/area table), so it can't have/doesn't need the Area Burst extra. Obscure 6 gets you a 250 ft. radius.
It does require the Selective Attack extra, though, not the Selective power feat.
Obscure 6 (radio effects; Extra: Selective Attack) [12pp]
Ah, thanks for that. Suppose I should get rid of the "I can make it in a week" bit.
Ember has been upgraded he now has some new super-sensors to play with
-Analytical (Scent) 1pp
-Detect Magic -Range- (Scent) 2pp
-Extended X100 (Hearing) 2pp
Meaning he now has rather good hearing, and he can sniff out magic (and if I understand it correctly, give a fairly accurate description of the magic.)
does that take effect imediately? If so, there is problably a great deal of magic in the room to be sniffed out. ;)
for the most part it all came online after the last sneeze, but due to its "newness" he may not be sure at exactly what he's smelling. but He should quickly catch on... or it will overload his sensors and knock him out :P
Now he must really hate being around Belphegor ;)
Well besides the Mage in the room ... and the daemon, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll pick of the scent of magic coming from Mr. Big. It smells ancient and somehow completely foreign.
Ok I just got the call! Once that is done I will post here and get this show on the road.
However the logistics of this might be stagering and I think we should disguss how this is going to go down. I mean If we pull this off there might be serious reprocusions of FC (here's hoping :twisted:) not to mention the gig itself might be a pain. I was thinking that each section of the heist might get it's own thread. For example the vault team has a thread, the lookout has a thread and so forth. Or it could be all one big thread. I don't know what would be easiest for the GMs... So I thought I'd put that out there.
I think each having their own thread will be the easiest to keep track of, and it'll also have the added benefit of not having to wait for a slacker to post. On the other hand, one of the threads might get left behind, which would have problems if an event in their thread will retroactively affect the others. But so long as we keep tabs on everyone else and that we're all advancing at the same pace I don't think it should be that much of an issue.
Here's to a good heist :twisted:
