She slides a presentation on how to handle the numbness over.

Florence: "Since you can't feel them, can I stick some sensors on you while you read that?"
"Sure. Why does it make a difference if I could feel them?"

I read it. It's surprisingly light on big words for a medical thingie.

Julian lines up behind the screen. He can tell exactly where the screamer is. The screamer... is it getting more alert?

Julian blasts the screamers, and Seven gives a whoop.
"You did it!"

Royal: "Are you feeling confident now?"

"I could tell where it was, but I already had an idea... It's not like waiting for them to recover for another round is an effective plan. Let's go."

Seven: "Just put them on! we're in a hurry! I have to watch them pretend to look for us!"
Royal: "I'm negotiating with her. We're... a little stuck. Might just have her walk into the trap intentionally, and knock her out. Then give her enough money to make her feel bad about talking."

Royal: "Great, if you can't see them, they can't see you. We need line of sight to get the screamer to work. Lets set this ambush."

Peter's backup is knuckles. Royal says not to tell him about the starpus: "He's just hired muscle. He'll get you out of there if you fall down."

They set up in an access tunnel: Julian is told Reena and the seeker will be passing overhead. The seeker has been sending out signals everyone five minutes or so, sometimes in a cluster.

Julian can feel the seeker getting closer, not only the screams, but the physical presence now. He can even feel Reena. How close will he let them get before attacking? they're set to walk right over him.

I wish Florence had an advocate counterpart called Siena or Lucca.

This is cowardly, but I am a weak coward.

They're close now. I can feel it, like a vibrating hum of a machine. It's almost electric. If I succeed at knocking them out, will the hum stop? Or only if they... No, this will only knock them out. Nothing fatal.

I was close to the tank; Reena should be just as close. I think to myself, I'm sorry Reena before making the attack.

Attack Roll

3d6
5 + 1 + 4 = 10
I was half hoping for a disastrous roll to hem and haw using luck on.

Julian is getting ready when they stop coming closer.

Why'd you stop? They, they realize I'm beneath them, don't they? Errrgh... I attack now.

Seven: "Reena's down. I can't get a great visual on the seeker."

The seeker isn't making any astropic noise.

Julian hears a noise of something moving in the tunnel. Or so he thinks.

"The Seeker is quiet now."

Seven: "I ... <explicatives>! Get out of there! I didn't think they'd go that far around! How did she tell anyone what was going on!"
Royal: "Knuckles, Rook, run, you've given us time, now get out of there!"
Knuckles takes off running in a given direction, Seven indicates Julian should run that way as well.



(will he stick near Knuckles? Hang behind? go as fast as he can?)
