There are several types. Since the ship houses live electrical equipment and hydrogen blocks, it should have the dry powder variety. Foam ones are not recommended for places with electronics or flammable gases such as hydrogen.

ahh, I see. Ok, so is your plan to have someone else spraying the powder in front of you, or are you hoping to entice the foe into the cloud, or start by spraying your enemies, and then using your radiation fists?

Pacifica keeps up with the other units and advances towards the next location. She explains the strategy to her team, and waits so they open the next door, and fight using the smoke screen.

She orders the team to try forcing the door open (12) 11 before using the drills, but the results might be subject to its sturdiness… With the door open, the Dread-Stormer checks the field using her sense of perception (luck) 14 (5). She also passes her HT roll (13+8, including resistant advantage) 15 and gets ready to fight activating her displacement 14 (8).


OOC. Pacifica might take a certain position depending on the enemy distribution, I will define this once I receive GM feedback.

Pacifica spots seven more waiting for her at the next door. But she knows exactly where they are.

Pacifica's resistance is to ingested drugs and poisons, not inhaled ones. She gets an unlucky glob of irritating extinguisher in her mouth early on. Even coughing, she's got Karate-15 and can see where she is while they are virtually blind and coughing as well. Go ahead and attack.

Got it, can you tell me what their weapons are, and if there are places to take cover in case of a slam, shooters or thrown items?

How many are they, and what are their positions/distance.

  • As I said, there are seven opponents here.
  • They are armed with blunt heavy objects to swing and throw.
  • This is once again with the classic 10 foot by 10 foot square cells and grid of passages between them, though these ones are filled with water rather than hydrogen. The only place to take cover is corners.

Pacifica will take cover and wait for the enemies’ attacks; she’s wants to avoid being hit by thrown attacks as in the previous encounter. She also will wait until her allies open fire, to avoid being attacked by friendlies, given their lack of vision.

I don't think the PC's add any bonuses here. While the fight on the bottom of the ship makes slow progress, masses of crew making for the hyper drive core and defending it inflict heavy losses on each other in a brutal brawl (10% dreadstormer causalities, 10% loyalist causalities, +0 position). only fire superiority has kept the odds even.

How will Hua avoid getting jumped as she moves through the occupied section? What is her destination and goal?

Pacifica's opponents aren't streaming through the door this time, they're staying put behind the square water tanks and waiting for their enemies to round the corner.


Daymar is close to Zybo... please make another roll for him, and adjust any actions if you see fit.

Didn't I blow the Spacer roll and Hua went climbing on the outside of the ship?

Correct, and got there eventually, during the next section of combat.
