Shows what I get for going cheap on a template. I can send you the better formatted sheet GCA spat out if you like.

Well, I was planning on "when the lights go on" but maybe an hour after the dance ends?

The rest:

Stealth, to get to the deck 19 food store:

Stealth
3d6 <= 16 : 6 + 4 + 5 = 15 ... success
Only by three...

Climbing to get at the lights and sprinklers:

3d6 <= 14 : 5 + 1 + 1 = 7 ... success
Traps to disable the sprinklers and rig the fire:

Traps
3d6 <= 13 : 6 + 6 + 3 = 15 ... failure
Well at least I'm consistent.

Now Stealth, to return to the dance:

On deck 19, Hua accidentally starts the bricks on fire early.



The alarms have been tinkered with and won't go off for a a few minutes, but H2 bricks are quite flammable, and grabbing the fire extinguisher will set off the fire alarms.. and they may reveal that the sprinklers have been tampered with.

Well, toss the kit into the fire (hopefully destroying any evidence) and slip back to the dance.

OOC: this replaces the earlier Mental Surgery roll on the cook that resisted.

[93] 20-09-24 22:56:21 CEST

Mental Surgery with Pressed Attack technique to give Delusion (Day just told my fortune and didn't mess with my mind) [-5]. -8 to skill, will spend a total of 7FP (2 base for use of a technique, 5 to offset skill penalty).

3d6 <= 15
3 + 2 + 2 = 7 ... success by 8!

Relieved to have averted disaster and suddenly deeply fatigued, Day is going to excuse himself and go to bed. He plans to continue using Mental Surgery over the next two days to convince those in his mess he is not suspicious and to convince the cooks not to use flour or additives that contain psi-suppressants.

OOC: On the plus side, he will have a use of Luck on each of those days to help deal with failures or poor rolls. How do you want to handle this? How many rolls does he need to make? It's likely not practical to affect everyone in his mess, but he's targeting those he regularly eats with and the cooks.

The incident with the mind control happened in the late morning, as the cooks were getting started with the meal. Going to bed means either abandoning your post (with or without Pothi) or calling in sick.

Pothi is most concerned about Daymar's condition, and asks if he wants to stop by the infirmary. Daymar is above 1/3rd FP (he's at 5/12) so he can keep functioning if he has to.

you need to hit 6 cooks: you've made those rolls, though two haven't been processed yet. You also need to effect around 6 fellows eating with you-- the ship's quarters are cramped, and they sit 8 to a table most of the time. Pothi and you are of course already accounted for.

skin contact doesn't need to be rolled for, but the mental surgery rolls really do: its dangerous to do, but yields potentially large rewards.

Hua heads back to the dance as the flames build on deck 19. Botha is still enjoying herself. It doesn't take too long for the alarms on deck 19 to go off.



The dance is close enough to the deck 19 store that the alarms can be heard, even through the bulkhead. The spacers leap into action quickly: this is one emergency that is drilled for fairly regularly. crew race to the location and open up the fire-fighting equipment. Thee aren't enough fire-suits in this compartment, so only the most eager crew will get to go into the thick of the fire. Many crew place a larger priority on finding their scattered buddies.



the compartment with the food is heated and filling with hydrogen gas, burning out the oxygen, and making everything slightly damp. Hua left open the hatches to the life-support compartment to its starboard as well, enlarging the fire and hoping to have more oxygen for the whole thing.



What will Hua be doing when the alarm goes off, and what will she do after it goes off?

Well, I'll act like nothing is wrong and the fire is a surprise:
Quote:
[94] 20-09-25 00:39:57 CEST
Acting
3d6 <= 16 : 2 + 4 + 1 = 7 ... success
When the alarms go off, I'll act confused briefly and go to help contain the fire (and I'll be able to get a look at my handiwork).

Spacer for firefighting (seems appropriate given drilling):
Quote:
[95] 20-09-25 00:43:33 CEST
Spacer
3d6 <= 14 : 2 + 4 + 4 = 10 ... success
Observation to check what's burning:

[96] 20-09-25 00:44:35 CEST
Observation
3d6 <= 13 : 6 + 3 + 2 = 11 ... success

I intended all of those rolls to take place Tuesday night, when he was showing off his Palmistry hookum. The rolls for Wednesday and Thursday I was going to do separately.
