Zybo asks Pacifica if she's noticed any more dreadstormers, or if they think they got them when they arrested Daymar's section?
So, Pacifica arrives and Vinobi calls her.

And later in the day Zybo calls her.

Right?

OOC: Pacifica is not in position to risk her fašade and play it straightforward like Vinobi. Regarding her acting skill results, I wonder if Vinobi has Detect Lies, because that is the way to tell whether she is lying or not. If he lacks the skill, then it is his PER -6. On the other hand, I wonder if you took into account her appearance and the +1 to acting for every point of IQ over him (I guess Pacifica has more IQ than Vinobi).
I did not count the IQ difference. Going back and checking, it doesn't make a difference. Vinobi rolled really well, and he's a bright fellow.

I am not pursuing the same tactic. Acting is not the same as fast-talk; if I wanted to reroll acting, I could have employed luck to reroll her or Vinobi’s results. Pacifica is talking between lines here.
Ok, that works. But you need to make it clear that it is what you are doing. Not sure what the relevant skill is. Psychology would work for sure. The roll seems fair, at any rate

I think the plan was to focus on security and/or officers, although Photorefraction only helps so much if Day is to use Mental Surgery, since that requires skin contact.

Do you need any more of his help regarding the armoury? We have the key now, but do we need to set up a distraction to get past the guards?

Well, I could also Daze them too, to give you an opportunity to use Mental Surgery on tougher targets.

This thread (and ship) is as of yet clear of both Zombies and Fire. I think you want [DFRPG] Crawl!, not Dreadstormers.

Well, that would be an interesting twist!

I think we're waiting on your response to TGLS about this shift's mission.


One of those options seems a lot more likely than others.

Well we could have Daymar brainwash people to act like zombies. Don't think that would be helpful.

So, is Pacifica dismissed? Will Vinobi visit Zybo with Pacifica?

LOL! Maybe there's a portal in the ship, I remember I saw another delver spawn in the ship before.
