    You're not thinking enough like a criminal. Why buy what you can rightfully steal or murder for?

    You don't understand. The money's for when we get back to the Inquisition Fortress, where stealing a heavy weapon for your Sentinel is a little harder to get away with.

    Sorry. Forgot my bodyguardly duties. Had to edit them in. As such, here is an intimidate check.

    Intimidate - (1d100)[42]

    Yeah, this one is definitely S based, methinks.

    EDIT:
    Ouch. Red didn't squeeze as hard as he thought, I guess.

    Or the toadie is hilariously strong.
    Or really tough.

    Or has an augmentic hand.
    Or has his hand crushed a lot.

    Really, that's a bunch of stuff.

    "Oh. And we'd like to speak to Mr. Swaney."
    So, is Red being remarkably suspicious of our contact's identity, or ... ?

    Callouses and short fingernails imply manual labour. The jacket is too big and ostentatious to be his. The "Assitant Supervisor" earlier had no such distinguishing features. there is no reason to assume his superior would.

    Cool cool. Y'know, I read that, but clearly I am playing along with Drake's Perception score.

    Good news: I have most of my fingers back - been reduced to just wearing a splint.

    I had to edit it in, as I originally thought nothing of it, myself.

    Then I remembered that the good guys aren't the only ones who can disguise themselves and that I've been watching an Alpha Protocol LP.

    Paranoia increased.

    Better to show distrust than to believe a lackey.
    If Red is wrong, we're cautious, as befits a man in Kastor's position.
    If Red is right and he never mentioned it, we're all fools who follow blindly.

    So, this is only my second Dark Heresy game and I haven't spent any XP but the starting allocation in the other, and it turns out I'd got the very simple characteristic advance rules wrong - I thought a characteristic advance was +10, not +5. Five of Drake's characteristics were too high as a result, and if I'd realised my error during character creation I might have ended up using the original 3250 XP rather differently, but what can you do. Sorry about that.

    I can't speak for the others, but it happens. I think I was under the same misapprehension the first time I read the rules.

    Sweet jumpin' jebus. Mistake or not, I should have spotted that!

    No worries, mate, just make sure the character sheet gets fixed up properly. If anything ends up really bugging you about XP being spent a way you didn't originally intend, just ask about any changes you want to make and I'll look it over - your stats haven't really been called upon much yet, so it's not like you get a huge advantage out of any minor rewiring that goes on.

    Cheers. I'll have a think about it a little bit and might come up with a small rejig, but to be honest I think I'm fairly happy to work with the original spread and chalk it up to experience.

    If you chaps who want to go to the market want to tell me what you're looking for, I'll tell you where. Are Nova and 'Erasmus' sticking together or splitting up?

    Jericus will hang around in the general vicinity of Nova, keeping her in sight. If he sees something that looks interesting (technology or weapons), he'll saunter over to it, but not if it's too far away.

    I have the feeling that this is going to somehow go horribly wrong, and that putting the Lone-Wolf-y Tychon with no concept of why splitting the party is bad in charge was not the best plan. Oh well. The Handsmen are somewhere under the Dome, right? Tychon and co are going to start byfinding a staircase that goes down, or an Employees Only door, or something like that.

    Oh. Yeah.
    Let's split the party. That always ends up going so well.

    At least this time we're doing it before the horrible gribblies show up.

    And yes, that's Nurgle. I suspect that's a result of LCP's WFRP game, the Lord of Lost Heart. The players in that are currently fighting a small group of Nurglings and a Plaguebearer.

    I do, however approve of the Handsmen Hunt. We ain't gunn be able to crash this thing without technical schematics...
    And what harm can Jer ad Nova get into in the marketplace.

    What, you mean by sending Nova and Jer to the market? That's because she expressed interest in seeing it when Tychon asked, and after his coma-dream last game he didn't want anyone going off by themselves. He needs Tauron along to read Documents for him, and he needs Red along because Sollex. Plus he wants to keep the chainsword accessible to the guy who can actually use it.

    Yeah, give Tauron back his chainsword and you'll see just how well he ... can't fight since I fixed all of his combat-relevant stats.

    Plan sounds good to me, anyway.

    So I figure Titus the PA could/should try to make a reasonably obsequious introduction, but before I put my foot in it, are we doing anything sneaky here or just flat out trying to bargain for a map?

    Didn't realise I was double posting, oops.

    Let's just see if we can drag a map out of them. Truth of the matter is that we have business down there, and we're (currently) rich. I'm sure the station takes commission on these things.

    I went with honesty because then we know all the variables. Or at least, all the ones we can control. Makes it a lot harder for them to catch us in a lie, which makes it a lot easier for us to plead our case.

    That's basically what I was thinking too. Especially if they're so high-faluting that they won't even give us the time of day unless we're very persuasive.
