A mess-mate looks at Daymar strangely. Something about Daymar has aroused his attention.

What are the next steps later in the day?

How close is the mess-mate to Daymar?

Daymar looks at his "new friend", and mentally suggests that he come over for a chat.

[599] 21-08-25 00:18:59 CEST

Suggestion (including range penalties)

3d6 <= 15
4 + 4 + 4 = 12 ... success

"Well, they are telling us where to put the big spinny thing. They probably even know what it's called."

Well, I'd like to go give two of the subverted officers a list with the subverted officers on it, which of the two are under suspicion, and that Vinobi received a similar list of potential traitors. It'll also have a pass phrase to identify both of them and to destroy the list after reading it. I think the right pair would be and Jokuchi & Vibibu. Jivithi is under suspicion, Nichapu is also under suspicion and had different programming, Vinobi already has a list, & Chojo is presumably off-shift (given he's the most plausible candidate when I gave Thibi a name earlier). Are they at work (and thus somewhere I can find them) during my break shift and can I get enough time from Thibi to go deliver a message to both of them?

And then during sleep shift I'm working with Daymar to subvert people.

Id like to know too!

Later in the Day Pacifica talks to Nejora, she wants to know her feelings about the current situation. She also asks Nejora if she is good at making diversions (fast-talking, acting). Pacifica tells her they both must be on ward an on alert, should they face unusual situations in the future.

The Man comes over "Nijothu, are you feeling alright? you're acting a little strange..." He carefully studies Daymar's face. Then the blood starts draining from the fellow's face.

"A diversion? I mean, I could start acting crazy and throwing things and shouting, but I'm not sure if that's the best idea."

Daymar reaches up to steady the man, releasing his control of him and instead doing mental surgery on him while saying "I'm okay, just so much happening on the ship, sometimes it's hard to take in. Are you feeling okay? You look a little pale." The mental surgery is to take effect immediately.

[600] 21-08-25 22:33:36 CEST

Mental Surgery (Delusion "Nothing has changed about Nijothu"; Delusion "Nijothu is above suspicion")

3d6 <= 16
5 + 3 + 6 = 14 ... success

"Yeah, maybe the stress is getting to me Nijothu." The man rubs his face. I hope we get those dreadstormers soon." The man's name tag reads "Biku".

Patting him on the shoulder, Daymar nods, "We all do, Biku, we all do. We just need to watch each other's backs."
