Re: OCC Thread
Annabelle Berkshire:
Makes sense to me.

I had Annabelle volunteer to drive because since she's never driven before and it would be really funny at a time like this.

Corebook states if a character drives an unfamiliar vehicle they get a -2 to -5 penalty on rolls so that will apply here since she's never driven before.  A character can try to drive without driving skill but you need at least one point of driving skill to pass a driver's test and get a license, but that's not really an issue here.

If the vamp cops manage to catch us without any brakes on their car, they're not going be asking for license and registration.


Since its not an issue then the -2 to -5 applies then?

IF the vamp cops manage to catch them that roll would have to be LUCKY. Youre right the vamp cops won't ask for license and registration. They'll asked to be staked. LOL

Realistically, they'll start their cars. And then they'll run an intersection and cause a major accident, taking shrapnel and massive crushing force damage. It won't kill them, but they'll saw ow alright :P

Re: OCC Thread
I suggest everybody grab a book and make a research roll.  Multiple researches can combine success levels, and higher success levels reduce the time period it takes to find a spell.


Intelligence plus occultism roll (and everybody here has at least one point of occultism).

Re: OCC Thread
(OOC:Not sure you can use a sword in a grapple...at least, you can't in D&D)

That thought crossed my mind too, but I don't see anything in the book that says you can't.

This is what it says about penalties while being grappled: "The attacker has to decide what part of the body to grab:limbs, the whole body, or the neck.  When grappled, the target is at -2 to actions that involve the grappled limb, or -1 to all actions if grappled around the body.  If both arms are grappled by two attackers, the victim is at -4 most rolls and can not Dodge.  A neck grapple doesn't impair the target but sets him up for either the Break Neck or Choke action."

Aaron is currently grappled around the neck, so no penalty in this case.

Re: OCC Thread
Eh. Decision stands. Priority for aid is Aaron, Annabelle, Bot, in that order. Aaron being 'most likely to die', Annabelle being 'alive', Bot being not alive.

Oh good, that's how I read it.

Re: OCC Thread
But the Bot is powered down. With one demon left this will get interesting. Now I just need to restudy those combat rules and add the relevant numbers. I'm not giving up on this game just yet.

Is Mike posting a combat move this round?

Or is he going back inside for a mug of blood while Annabelle and Aaron finish the last one? ;

Now I wish that there is an easier to make a cheat sheet here. I'd really want to get back into the swing of things. The pain of rp. :(

We have a new member of the group.  Say hello to Lance Chambers, former Intiative agent.

Buffybot is now back to action as well, so we're back up to a team of five.

Annabelle Berkshire:
Annabelle smacked herself on the head and sighed loudly.  Bloody machine has no concept of tact! she thought.


Well the Buffinator calls it as she see it Annabelle. Plus I need to work up her wit some more. :P

That's a wrap for episode 7. Points to be handed out later.


When we start the next episode, Lance will learn the hard way what a Turok-Han is.
