Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
Sidrynn raised an eyebrow. This certainly wasn't the boarding party he'd expected.

"Be whatever you'd like, lady. I'm here to keep you from stealing the ship or harming the crew."

Spinning the drawn discblade around a finger, he looked them over. "So please, feel free to surrender. Your comrade already gave up his chance to."

She smiled at Sidrynn and held her hands up in front of her.  "Steal the ship and harm the crew? I would do nothing of the sort. Just what kind of operation do you think I am running here?"

Sidrynn shook his head. "Well, if you have a mole on board ruin the engines, catastrophically, I really doubt you're into charity work. Especially so far from help the only reasons I'll believe are related to piracy. But please, feel free to amuse me with a story."

The disc comes to a halt ready in his hand. "Though I'd make it a short one if I were you."

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
The droid quickly raised its arms and pointed built-in blasters at Sidrynn. It took a step forward to place itself between the two.

"Warning! Put down your weapons or you will be vaporized!"


The Twi'lek shook her head as she smiled nad then put her hand on one of the blaster barrels.

"Now now, that is a little much. My new friend here is just a bit nervous. He was only trying to show how tough he is. He would never attack a sweet woman like me."

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
"Not without reason. But assaulting the ship I'm travelling on is pretty good reason. So last chance. Why?"

He turned slightly to narrow his profile, but kept his eyes on both figures. He felt more than heard a thudding through the deckplates and hoped that was the promised reinforcements.

"Assault? Who said anything about assaulting anyone? I just wanted my ship back. It hs been so long, and this one was always my favorite. I am sure if you ask the captain he can clear up this little misunderstanding."

She stood smiling as the vibrations grew larder.  The sound of boots on the deck and metal clicking on metal came from behind Sidrynn as a few crewmembers ran forward with blasters drawn.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
"I did. Destroying our engines to leave us adrift so you can board doesn't really fit under anything else. Regardless of your personal history, you've impeded all of us and put us in danger."

He turned partway to the lead crewmember, but made sure he could still see the woman. "Do you have any stun-cuffs or restraints we can put on her? Not that I believe her story, but the captain may still want to speak to her. And a restraining bolt for the droid would be good."

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
"I just want a friendly chat with the captain.  IS that too much to ask? No one needs any stun cuffs or restraining bolts. Just a sit down and a nice chat. Maybe you can moderate. You are the most likely neutral party on this ship."

"I think it is," he says. "See, I'm familiar with that technique. When the opponent has a fixed position, you offer something reasonable - then back down until you find something they will agree to, that's beyond their position. Any gain is a win for you and a loss for them."

"I still haven't heard anything about why we should even let you talk to the captain, much less be free as a bird. You're still at least connected to murders and sabotage, leading to taking this ship - that's piracy."

She sighed and shook her head at this latest comment. "Well, well. Someone who is not as boring and dull as these other spacers. But are you as simple minded as most of the grunts?"

ooc:

What is your deception?

2P 1A. Checks to identify him are upgraded once due to the Indistinguishable talent, if it applies.

"Now, just let me pass and I promise you no one will get hurt. And you can become my guest."

She is trying to use mind influence. But you beat her, so you are not affected.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
Smiling broadly, Sidrynn nods gently. "You know, I hadn't thought about that." Turning to the nearest ensign, he reaches for the comlink on security frequencies. "Just let me tell the captain you're coming with a guest, and nobody will get hurt."

Flicking on the comlink, he turns back to regard her, still smiling. "Captain, this is your motivated passenger. Our new visitor seems to be one of those mind-bending Jedi witches, and I recommend you go to complete lockdown until she is secured."

Flicking off the comlink, he drops it in a pocket, smile vanishing with it. He takes a step forward, all pretense of warmth gone. "I don't know what your story is. I no longer care. Unlike you, I paid for my ticket to Rishii."

I want to hurl my discblade into the robot's midsection, hopefully disabling it. We tried negotiation, we tried peaceful resolution, but she's going to warp minds until she succeeds, and stopping her is more critical right now. Lemme know what I need on the combat check.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
Not sure the weapon skill on that. I am sure you have it though.

Otherwise it is just a check with the DC to hit the robot. IT is nothing special, so call it 3D.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
Sorry, yeah, I meant setbacks or upgrades if it had adversary or something. Otherwise it's just based on range bands. How close am I to them? Influence basic power is engaged range, but the first range upgrade (to short) is just beneath it. The others require more investment.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
You were ready for the airlock to open and positioned for defense. So I would say short range. Unless you were literally on top of it and ready to smack anyone who entered in the face.  In which case this conversation is taking place pretty much face-to-face.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
With a sudden snap of his arm, he hurled the metal disc into the droid's chest plastron, where it punched through the durasteel skin, striking vital innards.

09:02, Today: Sidrynn rolled 3 successes, 4 advantages using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 1p 2a 1d 2b ((8(P), 2(A), 8(A), 1(D), 4(B), 2(B))).

6 damage with pierce 2. Using 2 advantage to crit and the other 2 to impose a setback on the woman's next action.

09:05, Today: Sidrynn rolled 87 using 1d100 ((87)).

Compromised (average) - increase difficulty of all skill checks by 1 until end of encounter.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
The disc flew from Sidrynn's hand and easily found the droid's center torso. It embedded itself inside, cutting into the armor that protected the sensitive electronics underneath.  A few sparks showed from the hole opened in the torso and the droid was frozen in place for the moment.

The woman looked at Sidrynn and the smile and friendly expression was gone. In its place was something in between anger and surprise.

"Well that was unexpected. But you will not get that opportunity again."

Are we moving into structured time for combat? I was planning to press the attack.

Yes we can move into combat.  I will let you go first since you did take her by surprise.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
Sorry for the delay!

Resolving that the droid is the more dangerous target - for the moment - Sidrynn snatches his second blade off his belt, launching it forward and hoping to disable the foe entirely.

17:58, Today: Sidrynn rolled 4 successes, 1 advantage using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 1p 2a 1b 1d ((9(P), 2(A), 7(A), 3(B), 4(D))).

7 damage with pierce 2. Will use that spare advantage to give a boost to the next friendly character.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
The blade flies forward and hits the droid.  It slides in between a seam on two metal plates and hits the internal wiring.   The droid begins sparking and babbling in high-pitched noises before it jerks forward and falls to the floor.

The woman pulls out a blaster and aims for Sidrynn before firing.  "You will pay for that!"

18:00, Today: GameMaster rolled 1 success, 1 threat using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 2a 2d 1s.


Re-rolled to add setback die.  Gives you 1 threat to press on her.

Re: Sidrynn: Machinations of the Force
I have 4 soak and one point of defense, so she should have rolled an additional setback die.
