Gnomes, TGLS: I'm waiting for your actions in the "present", during the eventful morning, even if its to say "I just wait for something else to happen". I'm also waiting for TGLS to respond to Pacifica's Greeting.

I got some questions about Hua and her plans:

Where do the fake suppressants come from?
Was Pothi Botha actually drugged?
Where did these drugs come from?

And in general, when are we going to have the next meeting?

The first three actually all have the same answer. Hua raided the medical stores a few days back, and stole some inert filler used to deliver other drugs, along with some narcotics. She stashed the narcotics in Botha's (not Pothi's) locker, gave her a pill on a night when she needed to meet up with everyone, and then took half an hour in the kitchen to shape the filler to look like the suppressant drugs. Botha caught Hua trying to not eat food, and Hua sprung her trap to discredit Botha.

The next meeting is day 17, a tuesday, two days from the leading edge of the action.

Alas Hua/TGLS, looks like you are gonna need another Thibi.

So are there huge tanks of knock-out gas around here somewhere or would this involve some kind of life-support trickery?

Guess I'm looking at an old map.

Hm... What to roll to subtly determine this? More Observation? Influence? Make Stealth attempts throughout the day and see if Thibi notices disappearances?

Life support trickery. The ship consists of a lot of compartments that are pretty much air-tight. This was done to minimize atmosphere loss if the ship is hit. The hydrogen compartments are also air-tight, in case of loss of containment. This means its possible to flood a compartment with hydrogen gas, excess CO2, nitrogen, something more exotic like lasing gas, or to vent the entire thing to space.

Yes... I'm not sure how much each of you are looking at the provided maps. I figured you hadn't looked at the map because of your question, so I looked at the map and decided that no thought went into the decision to layout that kitchen, so I reversed the counter direction. How much are each of you looking at the map?

Probably influence combined with small innocent test runs.

I can't say I've looked at the maps much recently.

Now that you mention it, I have been wondering about the map's legends. Could we have a list of symbols? It might be helpful when reading the map.

On the other hand, how many yards is the smallest square? For example, in map 12 there's a place called "establishments", and there is another label that's blurry and there are smaller squares over there.

I downloaded the maps when I joined the IC, I think you did great job now; I know it takes a deal of effort to finish stuff like this.
