    We'll have a cast change shortly after returning to M:tE (perhaps a month away, once we've finished up Icewind Dale). mysydrome intends to retire Yghorl and replace him with a different character.

    Essentially it's the issue around krogans not being terribly developed in the setting, and not providing much guidance as to how you might develop them either beyond "pacifist krogan". Yghorl is without any grand motivation, and the only ones that might make sense - curing the genophage or else pulling a Wrex and trying to demonstrate a better way to be krogan - aren't compatible with gadding about doing the mercenary thing. Yghorl is probably going to retire to a medical posting aboard the Citadel.

    Apparently Yghorl is going to stay for the time being. The player is going to see how it goes with adding some more motivation.

    We return to the game next week, we wrapped up Icewind Dale last night.

    As a few random notes:

    After a few months playing with Shields as attack penalties I can confirm that it works quite well.

    I also changed Rapid Biological Restoration to make it a bit more potent.

    Emergency medical
    management systems kick into action, allowing the
    character to direct the treatment to where it will be most
    effective. As a reflexive action, the character can target
    an ally (including themselves) within 5 yards who must
    spend one dose of Medi-Gel from his armor‘s reserve;
    make an Intelligence + Medicine roll with a penalty
    equal to any wound penalties that the target is currently
    suffering. Each success scored allows the target to
    immediately heal 1B, or "trade" 3B worth of healing to
    heal 1L.

    Podcasts are back on!

    Mass the Effecting – Transcendence – Episode 8 – Part 1

    With the ethics of the situation challenging Penumbra’s dedication to the mission, they are forced to question how to proceed with Dr. Kerensky’s request. Then an unexpected channel is opened, and the mercenaries find themselves dragged back in to the mayhem…

    Mass the Effecting – Transcendence – Episode 8 – Part 2

    Dug in around the Fastness, Penumbra find themselves in a three-way stand-off with no obvious solution. Without support and with the threat of a ticking clock over their heads, the team need to secure their target and try to resolve this goddamn mess.

    Episodes 14-16 are up on the site.

    Recently we've had Collectors, a fragment of a crashed Reaper (or as we currently know it, a "Sovereign-class geth dreadnaught") and we ended the last session strapping on drop casings to make orbital entry.
