There were eyes on her the whole time. How could she? Unless, it wasn't. And honourable thieves...

Knuckles takes off running in a given direction, Seven indicates Julian should run that way as well.
Like there's no chance it's Royal or Florence (on account of science to be done). Seven and Slam, well, they're well paid but the heat is on. But Knuckles? He's new, in the dark, and presumably not getting a proper share.

I hang behind Knuckles, but not let him get away completely.

Running
3d6 <= 7
5 + 5 + 6 = 16 ... failure
Eh... Luck I suppose. I swear the next point I get I'm putting into running.

Running (Luck)
3d6 <= 7
1: 3 + 1 + 3 = 7 ... success
2: 4 + 4 + 3 = 11 ... failure

You hear an exchange of gunfire right as you aproach a corner ahead: you can plunge through and hope not to get hit or you can double back and hope for an exit.

He does end up making running rolls a lot. Almost as often as Peter makes Hiking.

Well, forget Knuckles the traitor. I'll try to run through.

Bullets zing past Julian, but he is unhit. somehow*. He thought maybe he felt one get way too close.



Out of the corner of his eye, he swear he sees Paulis Tatum doing the shooting, with two other guys.


*dodge roll succeeded


Julian hears a voice in his head. "I'd hate to shoot you. But I will if I have to."

I take it Julian's rounded a corner and not in immediate danger of being shot. If not, I'd like a tactical description (i.e. how far to such a corner, is there cover, etc.)

What? An Astropic? I get it now. That's what the dream was warning me about.

I respond silently. "You're Paulis Tatum, aren't you? You've been following me this whole time! But, why didn't you stop me at the train station?"

(Yeah, he's taking a complex route denying line of sight)


Paulis: "I didn't notice you there. You're the kid, not the punk, right? I haven't been following you. I've just been tracking the kidnapped Starpus. And I've been lucky."

I pointedly ignore the question. I suppose he could infer.

"Yet I've seen you before the Starpus were taken and the day of. Just a massive coincidence? And what does military aviation have to do with Starpus security?"

"Yes its a massive coincidence... you saw me before you stole the starpus?! Its been as big a surprise to me as to you. That's why I got dragged out of KMA to hunt you. Because I heard your voice. And Astropics are rare. I thought I'd gotten away from that. Slow down, will you? "

"So you also just happened to be on the station they were stolen from too."

"What, so I can be arrested? So I can sell out some of the few people who actually think I'm worth something? So if I'm lucky, I get dumped off at a creche instead of a young offenders institute? Yeah, no thanks."

"Why would you give you to the Panogoans? You're one of us. Why would you even think that? Did they tell you that? You know they're just a bunch of Crooks looking for money. Did they really trick you into thinking that?"
