    Tychon probably keeps spares. The man smokes like a chimney.

    RE: Pseudonyms. Obviously, Tychon will be using Gideon Kastor. Jericus and Red should probably use them as well, but Rhodes never met Nova. Or Tychon, for that matter, which is why he's probably not going to worry too much about a disguise, except to leave his boots behind. They'd look a tad out of place on someone like Kastor. It's also why he feels safe bringing all five of his guns. He's going to explain Mr. Kastor as being a collector.

    Anyways, shall assume that the roles selected are good, and write up a first post.

    M'kay, character stuffs that I've been working on (and keep forgetting to actually post):

    Spent 300 exp on 3 Sound Constitution talents (hooray for wounds!). Saving the rest so I can pick up Blade Dancer once we get a little more exp.

    Money/Equipment:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Funds: 35 thrones in pocket +336 paycheck +75 because Jer is awesome = 446 thrones.

    Selling off a good chunk of my gear for thrones:
    • Stub automatic (25 thrones)
    • Silencer (5 thrones)
    • Ammunition for pistol (1.5 for bullets, 7.5 for man stoppers)
    • 3 frag grenades (5 per, 15 total)


    So: 446 + 54 = 500 thrones total.

    Nova will pick up another best-quality mono bastard sword (170 thrones) and another best-quality mono katar (80 thrones).

    500 - 250 = 250 thrones left


    Nova will keep all of her weapons on her, along with her photo-contacts, filtration plugs, multi-key, and cash. The rest of the gear stays on the shuttle.

    As for Nova's disguise/cover, I figured that since this is 40k, and we're about to enter what can only be described as a wretched hive of scum and villainy, I'd go with something fun and kinda out there. Nova's going to add some spikey bits and artful cuts to her mesh armor and basically pass herself off as some sort of feral world warrior. I'd considered something subtle, but there probably aren't that many ways for Nova to openly carry 14 kg of mono edged steel otherwise.

    With that, the party of 'Gideon Kastor' will consist of the outlaw himself, his burly bodyguard at his side, his technical and administrative assistants at his back, and an amazon on his arm just to show off.

    Sounds good to me. Thanks to the 1AM board hiccup, I ran out of time to do a first post in the IC. So I used the time to muck about with the tattoo a bit. New design below:

    The immediate plan is to leave it in the shuttle. Somebody can take it if they want, but I feel you don't tote a sniper rifle around unless you expect unusual circumstances in which it'll be useful.

    As to why he has it in the first place - well, I could afford it and I figure a good hunting rifle is something you grow to appreciate on an Ork-infested frontier world.

    I'm sorry to bring bad news right off the bat, but I've just had one arm put in a cast (after six hours in A&E ). This makes typing extremely slow, so my contributions will be necessarily curt for the coming one to three weeks. Pretty damn inconvenient.

    Edit: One final thing: can Drake start with one point of damage and assume he's done his flagellation for the day?

    Red finds a silenced, SP weapon with a telescopic sight and the Accurate quality to be very useful.

    If circumstances permit, he may excuse himself to retrive it from the shuttle.

    Just in case he needs to kill a guy. Drake and Tychon can watch. To see how it's done.

    "It" of course, being shooting a dude in the face from far off with a high-powered, silenced rifle.

    Nah, probably just a cog on a skull.

    By the way, now taking bets.
    10 thrones on Rhodes being there.
    10 thrones on the Xenos beastie escaping somehow.
    10 thrones on our cover being blown at a highly inconvenient moment.
    and 10 thrones on something being accidentally set on fire before this is all over.

    That does suck. Get well soon - what did it? A car?

    One final thing: can Drake start with one point of damage and assume he's done his flagellation for the day?
    Of course.

    Oh yeah, sure. "Accidentally."

    I do know you guys. That, sir, is a sucker's bet.

    I'm gonna go with highly inconvenient moment, when Drake leads the whole station in a glorious rendition of The Ungodly Are Trampled Beneath His Golden Throne. Feel the spirit of the Emprah flowing through you, brothers and sisters. A priest's gotta pray.

    Wait, on the Tarmac?. LCP is a theoretical physcist going for his PhD, Destro is Destro, Et cetera is a Brit living Abroad, and now I find out that Rizhail is a aerospace engineer and you consider a bit of clumsiness at an airport "nothing special".

    I have never felt more inadequate, what with my personal tale being boring and all.
    Well played.

    ALSO: Red is now perving at Nova a little bit, which I feel is appropriate, seeing as he is neither a widow, a priest, or a tech-priest and hasn't bee able to look at somebody without thinking about shooting them for months.

    Dialect difference? Here in Britainland, I would read Thragka's post as more likely being about falling on a regular road. I think what we call tarmac you call asphalt.

    LCP is a theoretical physcist
    Hell no, I'm an experimentalist. I don't have the maths to do theory for a living. Also...

    Possible, but Thargka's location reads "Ireland", so I'm going to without judgment.
    O'er on this side of the pond, "Tarmac" is used pretty much solely for the asphalt on a runway.

    While I'm not a Britainlander, it's still the original side of the pond as far as the language goes, so, yeah, I just meant a boring old road. Sorry to inadvertently string you along in the hopes of a juicy story.

    In reality, I'm an Irishman, studying in the UK (I'm on Easter break right now though), halfway through my undergraduate mathematics degree.

    Even keying off Ballistics with a +10 for having a big gun, that's a failure of an Intimidate.
    Red always fails to Intimidate.

    No worries. Red just has to murder the biggest, scariest guy around, and concot a reason for it. It's like a prison movie.

    He wondered how one might go about getting servitor control codes for the bay. Probably with menaces, which ruled that one out.
    Jericus knows little about space station design, and less about this particular one (which is old as balls anyway). However, he knows servitor control is more likely to have been determined and installed by ranking personnel than by the mechanical hardware of the station.

    I'm not sure myself what an appropriate bribe tip is, but I suspect neither does Drake. Not to metagame too much, but Clemens must be around Supine or Learned class, so thirty thrones should be around a week or two's wages.

    But forget about that Charm roll, anyway.
