Can Vassarious sense the current form of the shapeshifter?

Vassarious stops... "Let us gather some of the security forces and have them assist us in covering the exits. Then we can enter casually and try and take the demon by surprise."

"Sure, let's play it your way."

I go looking for some Guards.

You can sense the size, which is around 150 lbs. You can't sense the shape.

Its not hard to find security on board.



"I can't leave my post, but I can send your request up the command chain."



"Sir! Our Mystic Guests say they've found the assassin and need backup. The new ones sir. No, they didn't say who it is. Yes Sir."


"A security detail will be hear shortly."



And they are, a sharp looking officer and four men armed with both Katana and submachine guns. The helmets are reminicent of samari.

I use tactics to judge whether to pair up two guards or an officer and a guard. Also, where to place the pair over the lone guards. My gut instinct is to pair two guards and put them to one of the doors as opposed to the hatch.

Tactics

3d6 <= 14
5 + 2 + 5 = 12 ... success

The guards have been placed according to the tactics roles near entrances... they're quantum guards until you need them, with at least one at each entrance, providing the shapeshifter doesn't roll better than you...


How will the two of you be entering the passage?

Oh man, I've never superpositioned a guard before.

I talk to V,
"Given that the shapeshifter can track us when we communicate, it stands to reason that it can track you when you track it. Therefore, we should split up."

Provided V agrees, I'll enter from an entrance perpendicular to the one V chooses.

"I don't see how being able to monitor radio communication translates to senseing an abiltiy to feel the presence of a hostile supernatural enemy, but I suppose anything is possible..."

Vassarious prepares a weapon and gets ready to enter vis the primary hatch.

"Once we enter, seal the hatches behind and only open them for the code-phrase 'quicksand hold fast' " Vassarious says quietly to Halcyone and the group of guards.

Well my assumption was the comms in question were Corco Comms; i.e. the magical ones that work at any range. Radio seems out as the compartments interfere with swarm frequencies.

So this means that Halcyone is coming from above and V is coming from strait on?

Hua's here now? That's an unexpected twist.

Yeah basically. I climb the ladder and try to blend in.
