Same here. On the other hand, those deck plans are a piece of work Iíve always praised and promoted with my friends.

Good morning!

What is the distance of the 4 enemies? What are their weapons?
And how far is the guy that missed the slam from S1 & Pacifica?

And double-checking:

Each shooter fired 5 times, right?
How much ammo are we carrying?

  • the four enemies are five yards away. they have improvised clubs.
  • The guy behind S1 is one yard behind him, two hards behind Pacifica.
  • Each Shooter fired 10 shots.
  • These are laser riffles from basic, so the total is 150 shots per weapon.

Thanks for the wait.

Yes, it is more or less like you describe. Have somebody make the smoke screen and with the room/passageway filled with smoke, Pacifica charges in. Of course, she will previously activate her special sense of perception to avoid being hit and to strike true with her powers.

What should be done to attain said effect?

Run next to a brave soul who is ready to spray as soon as you meet resistance. They'll spray concealment as you fight. Do you have a way to avoid breathing the suppressant?


Anything else you need to know before charging ahead?

Do you think that a mask of cloth will be enough? Pacifica also has fit and the high pain threshold traits. I know these might not be the best advantages for such scenario, just asking if the combination of these would work for you.

Ok, ruling:
  • Breathing in the extinguisher requires a HT-4 roll to avoid coughing (-3 DX, -1 IQ).
  • Not breathing gives a +4 to this roll
  • A cloth mask gives a +2 to this roll, cumulative with not breathing
  • Every round of breathing or five rounds of not breathing gives -1 to all rolls to avoid coughing due to the extinguisher gunk until a good 30 seconds of coughing is taken.
As a bonus, this will effect everyone else too.

Thanks Erick, I have been dealing with personal matters these days and it has been hard to keeping the usual posting rate.

I hope things improve this week.

-----------------------------------------------------

Regarding the strategy, I think the party can hold themselves without breathing for the length of the encounter. So, I guess there won't be any penalties if the group holds their breath, right?

Could you give me the coordinates of our current location, and of the destination? I want to check something in the plans.

They will still have to roll vs. HT to avoid -3DX and -1IQ, its just that the roll vs. HT won't be penalized.

Currently you are on deck 19, about to enter into the F block, right in the center of the ship. Your destination, or rather, "target", are the living quarters on decks 18 through 15. You are with the lower blue arrow, and should consider yourself its speartip.
