    Did my character find anything with regards to the mercs, either intel or petty cash?

    Common Lore (Underworld) to identify the crest: (1d100)[98] vs 30. Hmm...looks like the Aquila.

    To the optimist, the glass is half-full.
    To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty.
    To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

    I'm happy to throw a roll in to see if Narl can help Enoch, but I'm going to hold off on rolling in case I can use something other than CL Underworld, perhaps CL Imperium or something , otherwise Narl may not be much help.

    Did Micky get a bonus to the Search for tats? I'd assume helpers, lots of time and looking for big tats on bare skin would give some circumstance bonuses. Even +10 would've made 41 a success, so it's interesting if the 'gangers' really don't have anything like that on them if it's standard for underhivers.
    He did, actually. The mercs/gangers really didn't have anything special going for them as far as he can tell.

    I'd ask you to roll if you want to try and find anything of significance, but finding cheap stuff like ammo, booze, playing cards, and other items of negligible worth is pretty easy. I'll be totaling up any such loot you can gather at the end of the scene.

    You could try Imperium, though it may just tell you whether or not the emblem is anything commonly seen in public or not.

    I doubt anyone objects to some spending money, so can you just give us all the rolls for gathering autopistols, lasguns, flak vests and other semi-valuable gear into a big pile to carry off what we can from? Search, Evaluate, Charm, what'd you want for that?

    OK, well I guess in addition to petty cash, I'll be searching the bodies for actionable evidence, so here goes. (1d100)[30] v. 15 to see if I find anything relevant.

    The awkward thing is, Vanth doesn't actually have the Trade (Armourer) skill, as at the time that I was making the character, I did not look at the errata that gave the tech-priest the option to purchase that particular skill.

    Would you have taken it if you'd known it was an option? Game's still early if you want to ask for a change.

    It really doesn't take a search roll to find petty cash stuff. Basically I would rule that you could find around 225 thrones worth of gradable goods that aren't obviously evil-looking or torn to shreds.

    I do, however, find it very amusing that your first thought upon examining daemonically-corrupted cultists is that you should sell their stuff.

    You're pretty sure you've seen this symbol somewhere before. Around a spaceport, now that you think of it.

    I think Narl's done everything he can in regards to investigation in this scene if we want to move things forward.

    Narl's search roll at base perception 39. Modify as needed to help out Enoch

    (1d100)[55](55)

    EDIT: looks like no dice unless a worthwhile modifier.

    Well this hasn't gone great we do still have a lead in the crest, even if nothing else worked out. I'd figure we're off to the space port next to try and find something else with the symbol or someone who recognizes it.

    Any other major angles we should be looking for? (Besides from purging the dice roller for working with the heretics.)

    Right, thanks Bennosuke!

    I'm thinking we need to look for patterns in the numbers (logic roll?) like numbers of digits, recurring 'prefixes' or sections, to try to figure out if they're comm numbers, ship registration codes or hab addresses of some kind. (Ship reg seems plausible.)

    Sending Micky to do some human intelligence around one of the space ports seems like the best use of him at this point.

    Sounds like a plan, that's why I had Narl hand the book off to our Tech Priest, who can hopefully do some deciphering!

    Sorry I've been quiet, I wanted to make sure everyone knew where they were going. As far as I see it, we have Luis, Micky, and Narl going up the pilgrim's road and Enoch and Vanth taking the train. Are you all ready for me to skip to the next scene?

    Yeah Micky's heading up the Pilgrim's Road, taking chances to look for ganger boundaries, Enforcer posts or check in on gossip in taverns along the way. He figures it might matter later.

    So who has Micro-beads with them? I've got one, Narl does, Vanthe's augments might cover that anyway but I'm not seeing one on Luis or Enoch's.

    They're so small that having one along with us shouldn't be an issue.
