Gah, good catch!  It's actually a deck in the backyard, which is through the door at the "bottom" of the garage, the bottom right of the image.

No, it looks like they are still watching, just haven't replied for a day or so.  Maybe ping them again?

Re: OOC Thread #2
I really don't have any specific information to share, guys. That's no reasonable excuse for my silence (doctors and students are better for that, as far as it goes), but... basically I have some vaguely defined way to get us physically close to the house without being exposed. That's it. Doesn't cover Matrix or Astral stuff, though.

Re: OOC Thread #2
And I'm sorry for that. (And also sorry that I didn't get that more explicit apology into the previous post, for what it's worth).

Based on log-ins, we're looking at the following people still active:
Bean (probably ;) )
Bester
Chromium
Iris
Keys
Oberon (probably)
Rasputin
Sleight

That's a pretty reasonably sized team.

How do we want to handle planning, though? This is where SR and investigative games always seem to die online, because it gets too easy to just wait for somebody else, and delays push the problem farther and farther out of mind.

Keys has done some astral surveillance (and so has Sleight), and Chromium at least a bit of grounds surveillance. That leaves a Matrix sweep, and then we go in.

Do we want to run with the smash-and-grab during a cigarette break? It's efficient, uncomplicated, and would get us moving again.

Re: OOC Thread #2
I think if the GM could make things move forward by giving feedback to those that have already done some 'legwork'. Matrix and Astral stuff happens much faster than actually walking around, as it were, but often facilitates the actual physical legwork by showing us where our gaps are and letting the matrix/astral people communicate to the rest of the team to make decisions on.

Once the GM gets back to us, we 'plan' over the radio, get the special ammo people, and then go for it when the time is right.

Or we could plan in this perfectly good house Iris spent so much time finding for us!  ;)

Re: OOC Thread #2
Yes, the house is a good place to plan in.  Keeps the rain off your back and prying eyes from looking to hard. :P

I will be posting up more info tonight.  My apologies for the slowness of late.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Been a bit busy with work and family stuff the last several days. I had hoped last night to put together a 'plan'....HAH! I would say I could get it done this weekend, but I know that is not going to happen either.

I think we need Big D to let Keys and Sleight (and anybody else doing leg work) the final pieces of information. Then we need Keys to tell us if he can Banish the Earth Elemental in the back yard. Sleight can help, but Sleight doesn't as big a dice pool as Keys...but some.

Once we decide how we want to go at them...cause I think the 3 regular guys are in excess to the mage whom has not poked his head out yet.

Any other suggestions?

Yes, sorry, it's on me.  I've been distracted a little, and not able to update things from work like I hoped.  I should have an update this evening.

Not a problem for me. I had way to much this weekend that was stressful. Going to have to spend some $$$ on professional help with my back muscles. :-(

Augh, sorry to hear that dude.  Hopefully it's just a strain and nothing more serious.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Just so the other players know, summoning doesn't take much time. Binding takes a lot of time (1 hour per force point or 6 hours in this case) and a lot of resources that neither mage has on them. Carrying around 300 rocks, chunks of glass, moss, etc for a Lv6 spirit binding is impractical.

Sleight gave the 10 drams worth of reagents to Keys to help him banish the elemental if he wanted it or summon a big spirit for the day without taking physical damage.

He has more 40 more drams on him.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Looks it. Generally what happens here on RPOL for Shadowrun. First run starts and gets bogged down in the planning phase.....

I am game if the GM is game to just go with what we already have put together and move forward.
