I see. "Well maybe we should try doping me up on painkillers. That seems to stop the screamers from affecting me."

I think this is a bit silly, but I keep quiet.

Col Tatim: "We're using him as an asset, we may as well have him talk to Jiara."

Jiara isn't on the station. Jiara is his last name, and he specializes in "Astropic Combat". He's currently on a shuttle over here, bringing another seeker... seems like his job is very similar to Rena's, if not the same."


Jiara says he doesn't think the crooks would have figured out the drugs they use to restore screamers after they get hit, but conceeds they may have hacked the information.

The subterfuge is undertaken. While you are changing, Julian puts out a check... and you've been followed. Starpus or screamers are very near.

"Would it be easy to duplicate if they did have the information?"

I silently let Tatim know that I'm going to attack. "A Starpus or a Screamer is nearby, I will attack now."

And then I'll let out a scream.

Tatim: "How do I prepare for a scream?"
Jiara: "Stand behind him."


Julian screams at one of the locations. He's not sure anything happened. All three locations start moving more quickly to the side.

A big strong man hiding behind me, a scrawny kid fills me with determination.

Let's chase after them. I figured they would have attacked if they were screamers.

They're still separated, in different directions. Which one will you chase?

Well, I don't know which is closest, so I'll pick the direction with the most direct exit. (i.e. if one was down, one up, and the third forwards, and there's no door forwards but a ladder going up or down, I'd go down.)

Ok, that means essentially random...



Julian leads Colonel Tatim and Four Concordance agents on a mad dash towards one of the sources.



As they're closing, Julian is on the receiving end of an screamer attack. His vision goes black... and then it returns. he sees Colonel Tatim down on the ground. The attack came from the source he's been chasing. His head hurts, but he's conscious.



(rolled a 10 vs. their 14)

Obviously, I scream back at the screamer. Then we should keep chasing them. "They don't have a feel for the range, they're close now."

It would have mattered if you targeted the one you'd already knocked out.

Julian Screams back.

Col Tatim is left on the ground behind them.

They close in on the signal, and corner it in the indoor equivalent of an ally. The guy looks panicked and cornered.
