It's been, what, half a minute? Unless a minute's passed I'll unseal the main door to check further. Throwing in a Per roll:

3d6 <= 14
4 + 6 + 6 = 16 ... failure
Well that's unlucky.

Its not Botha. Its a tall man: the name patch on his uniform marks him as private Tithoki, and a member of security.



"Hey! Are you going to open the door? You don't look like Tinu. You here to break us out?"

Not by nearly enough.



"Look, I'm pretty sure you're in with the Quinta Republic. Should I report you?"

Hm... I thought my photorefraction would have carried.

You're right. Lets say he didn't see you, he just noticed the door cracking... and is guessing something about who you are.


"How long! I'm going crazy in here!"

Pacifica keeps her cool and says:

I understand you feel stressed in the current situation, sir. I am just a member of the crew, ready for duty. If you need help in finding LA QUINTA crewmen, I am sure I can be of help to you. Just as I already have.

That's the same tactic as before: you don't get a reroll.


"So the list you gave me is all La Quinta crewmen? What about Zybo? Did you get him?"

Hua is able to make it out before the guards recover.

It's as I told you before sir, it's a list of potential Dread-Stormers or (as you say) “LA QUINTA crewmen”. I am just doing my job. Zybo is aware I reported this matter to you, and AFAIK he trusts you may conduct the respective investigation. The investigation you took from my report and the events you have reported or may report to our chief officer depend solely on you. If you require any help, please let me know. The chief officer requires my presence after my shift, it might be a good chance to feed him with useful information if you haven't. I understand he trusts in the results we may present to him.
