1) I want to apologize for having closed down my SR tabs ‘for a day or two’ most of two weeks ago, and so having taken a rather long unannounced break. It was only after I disconnected from a bunch of things that I realized how burned out I’d become, and I just couldn’t will myself to re-engage with everything for a while.
2) That said, I’m feeling loads more myself, able to sit down and focus on one thing for a while. So I’m good to carry on with this — or if the stop-start-stop has killed things for people we could do an accelerated wrap up.
3) Belatedly sending my hopes that the various holidays in the last month have treated you all well, and that everyone has benefited from a bit of a break.
@Electric_Muppet I’ll wrap my head around where things were this weekend and re-post where we are on init, and also post key stats/abilities for the various thingies so that you all can roll their defense/soak tests as appropriate.

Lily got 9 hits on a bat, assuming only normal reac+int def 14d <b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>3 [14d6t5=5, 3, 3, 4, 1, 2, 4, 2, 2, 4, 3, 6, 5, 1]
Bod 6 vs 8S(e), -5AP… so I think that’s 10 armour , -5 with 2 auto hits so 11d <b style=”font-family: inherit; font-size: inherit;”>4 [11d6t5=6, 2, 5, 1, 5, 4, 3, 6, 2, 3, 4]
errr… dead bat?!?
Edit, forgot auto hits… so it takes 8 damage…

OK, I finally read Obi’s notes and noticed the ‘join group’ button, so I can post here again 🙂
Batshit up next in terms of actions.
And while the strategic issue of dealing with enough foes to wear you down sounded interesting, I’m realizing that it is a ridiculous amount of dice rolling which is even more annoying online than in person. After this pass wraps up I’m going to steal the grunt groups rules from SR6 (which honestly probably makes it easier on the player-characters). Or else come up with some way to wrap up the fight without having to knock out another 10 or so spirits.

We could go entirely ‘cinematic’ and ditch the D… promise not to make it too easy on ourselves… these would appear to be minor horrors after all!?!

Could do, SR is really more the story than the rolls. Bronwean is more myth than math. Like it says on the toilet door, I’m easy.
MemberJanuary 15, 2021 at 11:24 am
Yeah, or we could proceed with buying hits to solve this quickly (at least for the enemies)
OrganizerJanuary 17, 2021 at 7:47 pm
I’m good with either narrating or buying hits. I’ll post something in the IC but avoid any rolling 😀
OrganizerJanuary 20, 2021 at 8:51 pm
OK, I guess I just IC changed the Mantic-Bats fear from touch to ranged. It just seemed cooler and made more sense to me. They are rolling 11 dice.
[url=https://orokos.com/roll/870740]fear on Batshit[/url]: 11d6t5 3
[url=https://orokos.com/roll/870742]fear on Kynos[/url]: 11d6t5 1
[url=https://orokos.com/roll/870743]fear on Lilly[/url]: 11d6t5 6
Fear is resisted by logic+willpower. It is a spirit attack, a fear attack, and a sound attack, so appropriate modifiers all apply.
ETA: sorry for the roll on Lilly!
MemberJanuary 21, 2021 at 1:39 pm
Kynos is immune to fear (burned out emotion) – fittin enough with that roll 😀
OrganizerJanuary 21, 2021 at 3:51 pm
Lily isn’t! My roll was as bad as yours was good! 4 hits on 18d with exploding 6s :-/
Ah well… will try and get an IC up tomorrow, sorry, run out of time now.
MemberJanuary 24, 2021 at 4:33 pm
Batshit got 4 hit, this skyrocketing manna load is going to push her initiative up and she is going to advance magicaly too
OrganizerFebruary 1, 2021 at 9:03 am
I had more in mind for my IC post but thought I’d put that up to keep things moving (albeit slowly)… 🙂
Hope everyone’s well!? Feb already 😛
OrganizerFebruary 23, 2021 at 10:08 pm
The site was down then came back up, but when I got myself together to post it was down again, and I admit I just didn’t check for a few more days after that.
At this point I think I’m just going to try and wrap this up as quickly as can be done, since all momentum has been lost. There are still a few decisions for the team to make, however.
OrganizerFebruary 26, 2021 at 4:50 am
Similar story for me… and the excuse that SR6 has lured much of my time away which isn’t really an excuse 😛
Re-roll fear 21d 5 hits, hopefully enough to clear her head with Batshit’s help…
Now we just need to ‘turn off the tap’ on this mana otherwise we’re going to flood the world with horrors 😀
OrganizerMarch 3, 2021 at 9:32 am
@Beta: for the sake of my sanity is there any chance we could have a bullet point description of what we’ve found down here or a map of some sort? Lily is no arcane expert so I don’t expect her to know what is going on but I am struggling too as play has dwindled (no fault of yours!)
OrganizerMarch 3, 2021 at 10:05 pm
Good idea. Let me try to sketch something of the layout, which I can post somewhere. Hopefully tomorrow. And I’ll summarize then, referencing the sketch.

Thanks Beta… so we came in to the large room and then set off either left or right (can’t remember) and have been working around the cellular rooms in turn? The big space in the middle is either inaccessible (solid rock?) or we haven’t found the door yet? Where are the figures banging on the window telling us that the tide of creatures won’t stop?
OrganizerMarch 11, 2021 at 9:44 pm
Sorry, I should have indicated that. The team is currently in the right hand +8 room (the one that has the note of ‘spirits’). The figures are in the ‘-12’ room.
From maps they have seen, the middle area is apparently just rock.
