Sir, this isn't confirmed but there are rumors of a prison break. I think you should investigate.

The rolls to get close to the two security people are successful: for each pair of security people you want to hit you need:

one stealth roll for each dreadstormer, one photorefraction roll that works for both, and two mental surgery rolls, one for each security in a pair.

Two hours or more of hunting should let you get around 20 security, or 2/3rds of the shift... if you want to do that much hunting.

Two female security have been compromised:
Thiki Jovothorju
Zuthorchi Vortopu


A note on doctors being officers: Doctors are not officers in this setting, aside from their head officer. They are NCOs. They are considered part of morale, and most of the medical personel are nurses or medics. Which says more about Zorbani heirarchy than medical skill.


EDIT: you can keep rolling until you need to use luck and then quit if you want. Its fine by me. Its what would happen if we did it step by step the tedious way.

Subverting 20 security personnel would be quite the coup, but the odds with that many rolls aren't in our favour - sooner or later one of us is going to get a failure or critical failure. I've got Luck to absorb one such incident, but after that things could get...interesting. Let's shoot for another four pairs of security (10 total), and if we're still doing well at that point, we can amend our plans.

Sure that works for me. Do you want me to roll all the dice or do you want to roll all the dice?

Floor 14, most of those under suspicion of working with "La Quinta" could make an escape soon. There could be a person by the name Botha, that one is Zorbani, I'm sure of it.

Well, I figured we would each do our own rolls. So, I've made four Stealth and eight Mental Surgery rolls here. I figure I can get away with doing the Mental Surgery rolls as All-Out Concentrate, giving me +1 for effective skill 16.

[647] 21-09-27 23:10:52 CEST

Stealth

3d6 <= 14
1: 2 + 4 + 2 = 8 ... success
2: 6 + 2 + 1 = 9 ... success
3: 5 + 3 + 2 = 10 ... success
4: 2 + 3 + 3 = 8 ... success

[648] 21-09-27 23:13:37 CEST

Mental Surgery (Fanaticism (Quinta Republica)

3d6 <= 16
1: 1 + 5 + 2 = 8 ... success
2: 4 + 6 + 6 = 16 ... success - 10 following Luck rerolls
3: 5 + 2 + 1 = 8 ... success
4: 6 + 2 + 3 = 11 ... success
5: 1 + 2 + 6 = 9 ... success
6: 5 + 3 + 2 = 10 ... success
7: 3 + 1 + 3 = 7 ... success
8: 4 + 1 + 3 = 8 ... success

The rolls are generally good although the second Mental Surgery roll is a bare success, so I'm going to use Luck to reroll.

[649] 21-09-27 23:18:09 CEST

Mental Surgery Luck rerolls

3d6 <= 16
1: 4 + 5 + 2 = 11 ... success
2: 3 + 3 + 4 = 10 ... success

This really confuses me. Are you giving valid data to him or not? What's your objective?

Photorefraction

1: 5 + 2 + 2 = 9 ... success
2: 3 + 6 + 4 = 13 ... success
3: 3 + 1 + 1 = 5 ... success
4: 6 + 4 + 5 = 15 ... success [pretty tight there thankfully this is an activation roll]
[650] 21-09-28 01:02:07 CEST
Stealth
3d6 <= 16
1: 4 + 1 + 5 = 10 ... success
2: 6 + 3 + 5 = 14 ... success
3: 5 + 4 + 3 = 12 ... success
4: 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 ... success
Well I guess now it's just returning Daymar and heading back myself. I'll leave a message for the subverted officers at the hiding spot with the names of the subverted security.

Pacifica has been providing valid data, but she's been subtle.
Now she's just feeding him with "rumors".
