Hm... Something that would be easy to get lost in a crowd. Dance, maybe?

Maybe give it a day or two before I get started?

I'll play dumb. "Huh? What? Knew I was getting a little behind but I was sure we were had LOS."

There isn't a dance every night... but they happen frequently enough, and Hua will certainly be welcome. In four days there will be a two dances (it will be friday on the second dance). You can establish you like dances before hand and then make your move during the friday dance.

Yep, that works for me.

Right. Back on the straight and narrow for the rest of the day.

Hua is good to her word and stays within sight of Botha for the next few days. Botha might be mollified, or she might not. Hua goes down to deck 19 to dance on Wenesday, dragging Botha along with her. Daymar also has the opportunity to visit deck 19 to indulge in some gambling (I'm still waiting for his official bet on when the first shot will fired).

On thursday, they drop out of hyperspace for the first time. Hua has a comparatively busy day stockpiling warheads and laser fluid cartridges, and then moving them back once they go to hyperspace. Daymar has a strangely boring day: he and Pothi do more work when they are in hyperspace, while the rest of their section does more work in real-space. They end up standing around the hyper-drive giving occasional reports while the rest of their shift (and mess mates) run around trying to do things as quickly as possible.

That night, rumors as to their destination about, as well as rumors about where they stopped over. Most of the information is probably unfounded, though some of it will have leaked from navigation, most of it will be wild conjecture.

Friday most the ship feels good about relaxing. Which is why there is a dance on deck 19, crowding into some of Daymar's gambling space.

I need the 3 day period job rolls from Daymar to cover not eating the addatives through Friday. Also, I need a way for him to pick up extra calories or he'll be down 1 FP.

Hua is ready to try and destroy the flour. She has the kit, she has the cover, and the time is right.

The quartermaster has a tougher mind than Korchathaw "Pothi" Pothazeezor (rolled a 10), but Daymar is on his game, and picks up the electrical kit and hides it without incident, his confident salute getting him past anyone who sees him in the hall.
That evening (Tuesday), as promised Day is going to show-off his palm reading to whoever is interested, and will particularly seek out any of his regular table mates and, if he's lucky enough, any of the cooks from his mess.

Edit: to speed things up, I've done 5 Palmistry and 5 Mental Surgery rolls. For others Day regularly dines with, he'll give them the same Delusion as Pothi (Day is above suspicion) [-5]; to any cooks, he'll give Delusion (We should use salt instead of the psi-suppressants) [-5] and Delusion (The flour is contaminated) [-5].

Fortune-Telling (Palmistry)

3d6 <= 15
1: 5 + 2 + 2 = 9 ... success
2: 5 + 3 + 5 = 13 ... success
3: 5 + 6 + 1 = 12 ... success
4: 5 + 1 + 3 = 9 ... success
5: 5 + 1 + 5 = 11 ... success

[76] 20-09-22 01:50:44 CEST

Mental Surgery

3d6 <= 16
1: 2 + 6 + 1 = 9 ... success
2: 1 + 3 + 2 = 6 ... success
3: 2 + 2 + 6 = 10 ... success
4: 5 + 5 + 6 = 16 ... success - hoping whoever this is rolls poorly to resist! If not, he might have to resort to Suggestion to avert any negative reaction.
5: 5 + 1 + 4 = 10 ... success

Day has decided to place a bet that they will first see combat 3 weeks and 2 days into their mission.

I'd like to resolve his fortune-telling and mental surgeries, first, since that is the long-term solution he's opting for to avoid contaminated food. He is also going to continue trying to find time to do mental surgery on others in his mess (crew and cooks), all he needs is 1 second of contact over Wednesday and Thursday. As for picking up extra calories, Day will raid the food stores one level down to supplement his diet.

OK, time to go to it:
Holdout to hide the kit for a short while at the dance:

Holdout
3d6 <= 16 : 1 + 2 + 6 = 9 ... success
Now Stealth, to quietly get to the deck 17 flour store:

[78] 20-09-23 00:27:07 CEST
Stealth
3d6 <= 16 : 5 + 5 + 1 = 11 ... success
Climbing to get at the lights and sprinklers:

[79] 20-09-23 00:28:42 CEST
Climbing
3d6 <= 14 : 5 + 4 + 4 = 13 ... success
Traps to disable the sprinklers (removing the deflector plate) and rig the wires to ignite an H2 block when the lights go on:

Traps

I'd continue to return to deck 19, but I think this needs to be addressed first.
