Knowledge (Technology) check.: 1d20+16 19
Knowledge (Galactic Lore) check.: 1d20+6 19
That is woefully inadequate re:Technology but Galactic Lore makes you think of maybe that stuff that hit in Saudi Arabia when you were a kid, the stuff those alien invaders had?
Okay, it's a DC 15 Diplomacy check to talk the little guy down. It's only a DC 15 Acrobatics check to catch him but he might get wriggly!
You know that while this office is technically a programmer's office, it's really more the office of the programming interns, shared between four guys with dark goatees and glasses. They're doing a charitable project, scanning various books in the public domain and getting them out on the Internet.
It's a DC 20 Notice check (which Angelic and Wander can pass without a roll) to spot that
Diplomacy Check: 1d20+5 9 Going down to 2HP!
Diplomacy Check; HP Reroll: 1d20+5 16
Notice Check: 1d20+5 20
Knowledge (Technology) Check.: 1d20+16 30
Knowledge (Life Sciences) Check: 1d20+8 26
In no particular order:
You don't recognize the language of the symbols, but the words seem to be written in the English alphabet, so you might be able to pronounce them.
Diplomacy: You talk the sad little boy down, yay! Have an HP for being a hero.
The book is full of woodcuts of what look like grasshoppers, but not very good pictures - they look like they have scorpion tails, iron breastplates, human faces, and teeth. Hum. That doesn't seem right.
This is definitely set up for high speed book scanning and editing - it looks like with this equipment you could turn these books into PDFs, mp3s, basically anything you could imagine to spread them on the Internet.
To see if she can make the same screen-to-book connection without being told:
Notice Check, DC20: 1d20+5 16
Nope! What weird characters!
She'll auto-30 a Computers check to see what's up with the computer, though.
The computer appears to be running a program consisting of those strange characters, treating it as the source code, the universal building blocks, for an active simulation of something.
Craft (Artistic) Check: 1d20+3 19
Hey, pretty good!
We'll call the DC to hit Yellow 25, since it's a held item?
https://orokos.com/roll/836729 = 27
Well take an HP and give me initiative, Giz.
Initiative: 1d20+10 29
So, based on the rules for damaging Devices, Yellow would be making a Toughness Save at 10 + Device rank so +13.
Toughness Save: 1d20+13 22
Malachite: https://orokos.com/roll/837437 = 22
Okay so we go
Chitin there is now a big magic knife sticking out of Yellow, who is injured! What do you do?
Okay, so, as per discussion in chat going to retroactively have Ryder use Interpose to block the attack on Yellow.
Toughness Save vs DC 24: 1d20+3 8 Wuh-oh!
Toughness Save vs DC 24; HP Reroll.: 1d20+3 22 Hooray! He takes an injury.
Stabbed! It burns and stings!
Standard Action: Activate the CMYK Driver!
Move Action: Activate Yellowjacket Instar!
Hero Point: Surge!
Standard Action: Attack Malachite with the CMYKuarrels!
That's Damage 8 (Extras: Area [General, 80’ Cone]) [16PP], so a DC 18 Reflex Save to halve a DC 23 Toughness Save.
Hah-hah, yes, good, good.
He is now bruised.
Angelic has entered the chat!
Move Action: flies up
Move Action: STARTLE well that wasn't helpful
Standard Action: hit him =20
Hits by 1!
Tou vs 25
Bruised x2 and dazed!
I'll give myself an HP to counter the hit.
Malachite throws a knife at Eira
https://orokos.com/roll/837757 = 25
Tou vs 24
EDIT: Scratch that, new plan: Chitin is going to move up to Malachite and try to wait to do a combined attack with Angelic.
Move Action: Move to one side of Malachite.
Standard Action: Holding for Combined Attack with Angelic: Unarmed Attack vs Malachite; All-Out Attack 4: 1d20+10 22
The DC is 20 which should be within 5 of Angelic’s attack.
Move Action: another startle https://orokos.com/roll/838202 Ah well, should probably get some Skill Mastery on that!
Standard Action: She'll haul off and sock him. She'll All-Out Attack for +2
https://orokos.com/roll/838205 = criminy
Let's HP that
https://orokos.com/roll/838206 ugh the lowest of the low, but it hits!
Tou = 25 + 2 = 27
https://orokos.com/roll/838207 = he takes another bruise
Eira's gonna surge to finish the job
https://orokos.com/roll/838208 = 22
Tou vs 27, sure
https://orokos.com/roll/838210 = 13
All right, we had to push it a bit, but he is down for the count! Not actually out but he is surrendering.
Now for an IC post!
