Default Re: DreadStormers [IC]

OOC: Erick, the plan goes like this: Having the “know it all” perk, being around while passwords are entered should allow Pacifica to predict the keys (and learn them); she just needs to be around at the right place and time.

OOC: On the other hand, I think that a combination of vibration sense and her photographic memory may help her to pinpoint keystrokes in the occasion she can’t directly participate in “password events”. Think of Pacifica using her photographic memory to recall the exact picture of the pin-pad or a keyboard, then crossing this with the feed from vibration sense/sense of perception to “see” how the strokes are entered, using the know it all perk to fine tune it.

OOC: What do you think?

OOC: Also, is the Zorbani navy making the gruel (to compensate for the lost food), or is this made by the Dread Stormers?

OOC: Pacifica isn’t trying to annoy Nejora, but I guess that was the most relevant subject at the time.

OOC: This is what Pacifica tells Nejora:

IC: I originally wanted to be a flight attendant, but when I started asking people about the job, I felt it wouldn’t work for me. One day you I stumbled upon someone from the navy… he overhead the conversation I was having about being a flight attendant and approached me. And then he told me: “If you want a job that lets you expand your horizon with thrilling experience, join the navy: I've seen things you wouldn't believe; attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I watched C-beams glitter in the dark as I rode on the back decks of a blinker… All those moments... in the name of my country.”

That speech really inspired me, and here I am!

OOC: I don't know if Orion or C-beams actually exist in this setting, but I let's imagine Pacifica refers to its equivalents. This phrase in allusion to Blade Runner, by the way.

Acting roll for Pacifica’s speech:
3d6 <= 15
1 + 1 + 1 = 3 ... (critical) success (I am proud of my speech, LOL)

OOC: Pacifica also shows Nejora her singing skills:
IC: How do you like this? Says Pacifica (while singing something akin to Diva Plavalaguna’s opera).

Singing roll for Pacifica:

3d6 <= 14
6 + 6 + 2 = 14 ... success

OOC: How are you handling the +2 reaction bonus to Pacifica?

IC: (Thinking) Assuming I was allowed to take flour with me, I would like to have a reserve to bargain or make bets while gambling and to help my team mates If they have not eaten properly.

OOC: Tell me if that's possible.

IC: (Thinking) I would like to suggest a procedure to reduce food waste while cooking, a circular economy program for the ship, to ease things a bit after the “flour crisis”.

Administration roll to make the suggestions:

3d6 <= 14
3 + 4 + 6 = 13 ... success

OOC: I guess this part was lost as you were writing, Erick. "(...) As dreadstormer activity has become more and (...)"
