Intercom blurb to all Wayward Star personnel:

TSR has set off a self-destruct in the building

"You have T-Minus 30 seconds to reach minimum safe distance."

Re: Plan?
Did you mean to put this in the OOC thread?  This should definitely be in character.

Also, just an FYI Luke, that line in the PM was facetious (the quote, not the fact of the matter.)  :D

Re: Plan?
Do we have a plan to get the wounded out? I think Zeyktin is going to have a hard time trying to convincing any one to leave or take a bracelet.

Maybe he can attempt to override the self destruct?

Re: Plan?
If you can access it from here go for it but think we have less than 10 seconds now.

Unless someone can come up with a last second miracle I'm not sure we can save anyone.

I was actually wondering about the lensing pads.  We've sent 3 people up so far I believe who are being kept in stasis...on the pads I think.  So does that mean we can't use those pads now and we're reduced in the number of folks who can lens up at once?  Are we going to run into a problem if we try to lens our crew out of here at the last second?

Correct.  Anyone in stasis (you have 2) is held on the pad, so you have 4 usable pads right now.  Lensing a single person only takes a second or so, but takes several seconds for the operator to queue up the next target.  (NPC's are SPD 3, so 4 seconds for them per 'batch' of lensing.)

Bracelet on the agent, lens into lead vehicle approaching compound where Mir, Gwen and the embryos are.

Re: Plan?
So, anyone have any ideas on what to do about TSR reprisal attacks?

Do we want to lens the prisoners anywhere?  That gives away the secret of our teleportation technology.  Assuming the disappearance of the TSR telepath didn't do that already...  Hmmm, goal is to free this planet from TSR in next few days; would it be horrible if the prisoners remained in TSR captivity until then?  Or does it seem reasonable TSR will attempt to kill any prisoners if they appear to be loosing?

What are the chances we can stealth the transport used to bring the embryos to the power plant and sneak away while TSR destroy the plant?  Would be great if they thought they had succeeded in eliminating us.  Mir could continue his procedure on embryos after we find another location to hold up for a bit.

Re: Plan?
Looks like we're out of options. Power is drained. Only thing we can do is get the ambulatory people out on foot. Maybe elude the TSR until the power is back up?

Re: Plan?
Eh, sorry didn't get a chance to look over the ship's END usage.

I'd imagine you still have plenty of power, just that power usage is beginning to be a concern.

I will add that all up tonight.  Sorry.

Re: Plan?
OK so the ship has been burning through about 100 END per phase, SPD 2, so 200 per turn - 100 REC = about 600 END spent so far since all the action started.

Primary capacitor is down to about 70%.

Much of that was due to lensing; without that you are only burning through about 75 per phase so -50 END per turn with the stealth and ECM stuff running.

Re: Plan?
Can the ship slow to SPD 1 to conserve END?

Re: Plan?
Sure, though that would put some risk on things.  SPD 1 means Luke couldn't adjust ECM/ECCM stuff as quickly, etc.

Hmmm, maybe for a short period?  Dunno, what does everyone think?

Yes.  The suits are spacesuits, not SCUBA or whatever, so they just pump O2 into and filter the air within your helmet.

I have got to stop invoking Murphy.

We have a new player looking to take over Rondo, more on that soon-ish.

Re: Plan?
Welp.

I am so sorry guys.  The last few weeks have...  sucked more than usual, with certain changes in life meaning I have to just admit I do not have time for this.

I wish you all the best, but I will be shutting down my campaigns and dropping those I play in.

That stinks.

I hope things turn around for you.

If you ever come back drop me a line. I'll gladly play once more.

Re: Plan?
Been there.  It does suck but it's like you said, life changes.  Fortunately that also means that the tough times don't last.

Hope things get better for you soon.

Have absolutely enjoyed gaming with you.
