Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
I hope the antibiotics are for the pneumonia...they won't do much for the flu.  That's caused by a virus, and antibiotics are totally inadequate as antivirals (unless you have some secondary health problems complicating the flu...then the antibiotics can free up your immune system to focus on the flu).

Don't intend to sound like a nag...I've just had way too many friends get antibiotics for something virus-related and then get frustrated when nothing changed.

With all that said, get well soon.  Being sick sucks.  Being sick, and having to hold it together to take care of someone else?  Sucks a lot more.

No, the antibiotics are for the pneumonia.  :)  I'm not taking them.  Waste of time, using antibacterial medicine against a virus.

Thank you all.  Short posts today, I suspect, but I'll try to get caught up in places.

Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
My sympathies, Shard. I'm just getting over a nasty head/chest cold. Laid me flat for days.

And sorry about the wall of text. That's my longest Haarmon post ever. Tried to shorten it, but sometimes a post has to be what it is.

Sorry I'm running a bit late.  I had to plough through a damned wall of text before I could post anything...

Just kidding.  :)  Very nice post, Haarmon.  Well up to the standard I've come to expect in this game.

Faaaantastic post, Haarmon!  :D  Great stuff!  :D

And...I'm crawling back to health now.  :)  So my posts should start getting a little better.

Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
I'm getting a really sick feeling that the GM is hammering us over the head with 'Once this is all finished, it's going to be impregnable!  You rebel scum.'

And thus Our Only Chance Is Now™.

Gah.  What to do?

Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
Well, it sounds like Haarmon's laid out something to scramble their computer systems pretty thoroughly.  And we're at a pretty vulnerable spot in the whole operation right now...they're relying on that shield generator to keep the construction safe, if we can do something about it...

Between the physical damage to the shield generator and needing to restore their computer systems, we should have them set back for a while.  We're obviously not going to be able to de-rail the entire operation on our own at this point...but if we can set it back enough to buy time for the Alliance to act on the data we get out (assuming we make it out safely, of course...), then we'll have really accomplished something.

And I think I have an idea, if we can get enough chaos to break out at the right moment, that could get us back to the shuttle safely and out of the system.  Naturally, it relies on a lot of dice falling in our favor, but it isn't blatantly suicidal...*grin*

Rhijans said it.  We need to blow something up without getting killed, combined with Haarmon's cyber-hacking...

This is good.  Except...you're going to have to communicate this to Shard, because she's digging furiously, and getting deeper and deeper with no sign of a way out and no idea how to stop.  O_o

Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
*grin*  We're almost at that point, where I decide to stop playing stormtrooper and maybe start playing someone else playing stormtrooper (or just start making a royal mess and leaving casualties in our wake...)  Go ahead and do what you're gonna do, I think I have something that will work for most of the contingencies (I won't mention any specifics I don't have covered...no sense giving the GM ideas he may not already have, after all...*grin*)

You're trying to outmaneuver Ron?

*pained laughter*

Okay, okay.  :)  I'll get to a post today.

Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
Outmaneuver?  No.  But it's instinctive to me...you don't tell the GM what you AREN'T prepared to deal with.  They have an uncanny knack for figuring that out on their own, anyway, so there's no sense in advertising it.

Besides, I've never seen RPGs as being an 'us vs. the GM' scenario.  Yeah, it's his job to make life difficult...because conflict is at the heart of good storytelling.  But if he was trying to 'beat' us, we'd have been dead or in an Imperial prison a long time ago.

That's my point.  :)  Might as well just blurt it out for everyone, because...well, Ron.  :)

Oh, absolutely.  Collaborative effort.

*giggles at Haarmon's optimism*

Okay, I'm running late today, and I know I owe a post here.  Will try to get one up today!

Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
Okay...got something in mind, it's just a question of whether or not I see any cameras covering the platform to determine how I start it off...but I think things could get exciting here in a moment or two...*grin*

Re: A wretched hive of scum and villainy - OOC thread
You try being picked on - pushed about, used as a bar stool, threatened, constantly told fix this fix that - for a few years and see what it does to your personality.  At least you can go home and have a few drinks at the end of the day.

Droids don't even have an end of the day.

Is it any wonder we snap, and end up putting a hyperdrive motivator in somebody's bed?

I've always treated you decently.  In fact, I think we should be putting you in for full maintenance treatment when we get back - cleanup, upgrades, the works.

[Rhijans] ...Okay, Shard. Let's see your plan.

[Shard]  Dammit Rhijans, you wanted us down here, DO something!

[Haarmon] We have to get out of here, my plan is coming to a head!

[Juragga] Whose plan are we following?  When do I get to pop this Imperial like a champagne bottle?
