The title "Slop" is figurative, and well incorporated into the food most of the time: anything with flour (like the shield crew's pastries). Its in the dumplings of the soup today, which can be avoided until Daymar times his "incident".

He's able to dispose of his dumplings and soup. He's got a little bit in his stomach. He has avoided the drugs for 24 hours, and will easily make it to 38 hours, when they have breakfast next. He's only had to go short on breakfast and on half of dinner so far.

The next day will be sunday... not that days of the week are terribly relevant on-board. how will daymar avoid breakfast?


what is valford up to?

Relieved to get through another meal avoiding the slop undetected, and is now racking his brains how to make it the rest of the way. Rather than risk injesting more of the drugs, he eyes up the "slop" at breakfast to see whether he could hold it in his mouth, and then go dispose of it in the bathroom.

Holdout to conceal food in mouth

3d6 <= 14
2 + 3 + 5 = 10 ... success

Breakfast today is fried yam cakes and fruit, which means the drugs have been given as an additive rather than with flour.



roll soldier-2 (dreadstormer training) to identify which items have the additive.

Day scopes out the breakfast to figure out which items he needs to avoid.

Soldier-2 to identify which food contains the psi-suppressant additives

The suppressants would almost certainly be in the yam cakes. Day eats enough of his yam cakes to be convincing, holds the rest in his mouth, and makes a quick trip to the bathroom to "pass" the yams prematurely.

At lunch, he'll hit 42 hours without suppressants.

Day is wearying of sneaking around at meal time, but he is hopeful that will all be done in two more meals' time. What's on the menu for lunch? Based on that, he will figure out how to avoid eating it!

Lunch is leaf-wraps: meat (from succulent alien crustacean) and fruit wrapped up in an edible leaf. They're easy to carry around. The additives are probably in the roasted meat.

Day is going to try to replicate his last 'trick', and hold a couple of leaf-wraps in his mouth for disposal elsewhere. Since he won't be eating much of the lunch, he'll also scope out other, uncontaminated food he can take for later.

How will he avoid talking to the talkative Pothi with his mouth full of food?

He'll nod towards the washroom, and head over there to empty his mouth, and then return to the table and try to find something else to eat that would not be contaminated.
