Well, I've been assuming the YOUTopia setting is basically, "TL10, advanced biotech, no sapient robots but total cyborgs with lab grown brains are fine.", which for our purposes usually means, "TL10". Veto stuff at your whim, that's cool.

Cutlass (LT69) is sw cut, thr+1 imp, reach 1, weight 2. There's also a thr cr hilt punch. It's also ST8, so Halcyone's still under triple strength. Adding both superfine and vibro (UT163-164) adds an armor divisor of (5) and +1d+2 damage while powered, and a divisor of (2) and +2 damage while unpowered (unpowered happens to be the exact same as Halcyone's current sword). It also adds half a pound weight for the C-Cell to power it.

Or in other words:
Code:
Attack            Damage        Reach
Unpowered Swing        4d+1(2)    cut    1
Unpowered Thrust    2d+3(2)    imp    1
Powered Swing        5d+1(5)    cut    1
Powered Thrust        3d+3(5)    cut    1
Hilt Punch        2d    cr    C
ok, thank you!

TGLS, your character sheet is asking me to log into one-drive... I'd like to avoid doing that.

OK, I refreshed the link; not sure if Microsoft shifted its mass and changed the way share links work or not. Here's also a dropbox mirror if refreshing the link didn't work.

Microsoft, Microsoft.... still failing



I can see the dropbox link. Can you put that in the post I linked to on page one of IC?

Yeah, so there are three sets of comms here:
  • The magic comms that can work across dimensions. These can be used to talk to each other, and to the Villa. Their use can be sensed by some of the demons... making secret occult! roll... specific talented Demon Gate-callers can sense their use, and identify the use, but not listen in.
  • The Ships comms, for internal use. You haven't been granted use of these (nor have you asked). They can be used to talk to other people in the ship. The Shapeshifter may have access to these, but various channels probably keep that secure. Telruthians aren't good with electronics, so you only need to worry about social engineering rather than hacking. So the wrong channel may be available to the shapeshifter.
  • Your Swarm Network. It is limited to the submarine, and you can only call each other and the swarms. This is pretty secure. The worst than can happen is someone starts attacking the swarms to destroy the network.
Clear as Mud?

Yeah, that's why I wanted to defer

The Christmas season has begun... my posting is likely to be spotty until January. Have fun!
