All three dreadstormers are at the aft command center on deck 9

No, they report the operation is going smoothly.

The missile section works almost exclusively in the F block of the ship, and mainly on decks 18-16, 4, and 5, with the "headquarters" on 4 & 5. The round tan circles on the map are full of missile fuel: the warheads are kept somewhere nearby (you're not sure of the exact location). The sensitive areas are the fuel and warheads.

The plan sounds good, I have some ideas:

It is more than likely that the escapees are alerting the resting sections.

Assuming the attack concentrated our forces in this section. As the enemy I would build a small force to prevent the Dread Stormers from leaving this place. Then I would try reaching a critical location by myself, and “defend” it with another group of people from the nearest section at that place.

We could determine the most likely locations and find the best route by looking at the map and their origin...


Navigation:
3d6 <= 12
3 + 1 + 3 = 7 ... success.

I think they will be desperate for guns, so we could pretend we are on their side and get to the enemy lines. We can alert our party and move swiftly about the hot places and take point. We could even send a fake alert saying someone is actually taking over a critical section.

So three locations: Missiles 16-18, Missiles 4-5, & Reactor. I say half to the reactor and a quarter each to the missiles.

"Well it was a bloodbath on their side. Surely there'd be some hesitance that the armed security isn't friendly."

Once you all agree on targets, let me know where each dreadstormer will go.

It would take some acting. I'm pretty sure you all have that.

Well as long as we agree that we means we personally and not we, the dreadstormers & the guards. I still think I could do more harm slipping in invisibly and surprise attacking though.

Daymar will accompany the guards to the reactor.

OOC: Could Pacifica deduce the potential location of Zybo by looking at the most practical routes for an escape and key targets? I am talking about the Navigation roll.

How many are you taking?


What position in the group will you take?


Are they assaulting the reactor or just surrounding it?

Predicting Zybo's actions would be Strategy, Tactics, Psychology, or even intelligence analysis. Navigation gives a complementary roll to one of those, and lets you figure his position and beat him to his target once you know what his target is.

Yes, the dreadstormers have acting, not the converted troops.



Either approach or both have merit.

OK, I'll try and slip into the missile command center (on decks 4&5) and see if I can identify where the warheads are kept before we begin our assault on the missile section. If I can, then I'll slip back to inform the guards. If not, then I'll start making potshots at the missile personnel once the attack begins.

Daymar will take Pookivo and 15 guards, letting Pookivo take command of the troops with Daymar counseling him. As has been pointed out, there's no substitute for Daymar's abilities, so he is going to take reasonable precautions from being injured, staying in the centre of the group of guards until they get to the reactor and then seeking cover from which he can shoot or use his abilities. They're going to seek to assault and take the reactor from the loyalists.
