Alright, thanks!

Daymar won't be leading from the front here, he'll position himself to have a good view of things but where he won't be too exposed to danger since he'll be an important part of mopping up, converting prisoners. If there is an officer better equipped to coordinating the attack, he will leave it to them, otherwise he will coordinate.

Commander Zybo will be running this battle, with a strategy of 13. Would you please roll for him?
I am glad he is with us; it is funny that his most epic fight will be against "his ship".

With 16 security, that means she's with the secondary attack on deck 18. Is she leading the attack or is she letting someone else direct and just fighting?
If we need leadership/tacticts/strategy rolls I would like to have support from a trained officer. Pacifica will come up with the ideas, attacking will depend on the situation at hand, right now she is on guard.

But the NCO leading them has a skill of 12... success by 3.
So, we had a bonus of +3, is this a tie? Because we could use luck.

Vinobi will order
It is the locks we can break using the drills, right?

The tactics roll is an "outside event that affects your whole party", but I'm going to say no, simply because its such an abstract roll, it doesn't really immediately effect everyone, and because its basically the last battle.

On the other What is the penalty of the door? I could also use luck for that. Would it be worth it? What is to be expected after using the drills?
The door is a -8 to force. This is a "Force" attempt, so the roll is against ST, and you can get +2 for an appropriate tool like a crowbar... which your team has.

After using the drills, the team would force open the door, and then face down whoever is on the other side... presumably a large enemy force, but they might just fall back to the next door and lock that as well.

That's what I figured.

Thanks for the reminder/clarification.

On the other hand, this is like discussing for the apples before we plant the tree, however...

If not now, then when? This is the premise of the whole story:

Sounds like this is an epic chance for the advantage to kick in. I think we could still gain an edge whilst making it fun for all.

What do you think my friend?

Luck has been used throughout, by those who have it!



Luck should be used IN the final battle, not INSTEAD OF the final battle.

Daymar has definitely gotten his 15 points worth from his Luck. If I were to design this character again, I might be tempted by Extraordinary Luck.

Alright, how many targets? At what distance, what is behind us? Can you share the specs of our weapons? And where are the other 14 men?
