Ten more hours and we get to see if TwoBit is a hero or a chump. Dodge rolls for bad guys can be a fickle thing...

I expect to catch flak for suggesting krak, but when you're the Hammer of The Emperor, every problem looks like a nail...

Some of us like to hammer nails with our heads.  's not a good idea.

...I heard from a friend. :)

Edit: I have Security trained for some reason (must be the regiment), so maybe we ought to give that a shot first.  TN 40 (prior to other modifiers) for me, can anyone beat that?

We also have a lascutter almost literally burning a hole in my pocket.  I should have the TP's check it out when we get back.

Security is an Int skill so I’ve got a 50 base.

Going to use my auspex though to find the mechanism and see how it’s locked to give us more ideas.

sooo, there are dying people on the other side. We need speed, not some super high tech way to open the door.

There's a margin of destruction available to us. We need to get through those doors NOW.

also pls just let me blow something up i mean i've been loaded to the brim with bombs and not a single chance to use them except on buggos

Reminder: you are currently at 1% damage to the shrine. Depending on what you do, damage to the doors will raise that by 1-5% [from cutting a hole through the 'locking mechanism' to blowing them both off their hinges].

Zilch's IC post should tell you his pov on blowing the doors.

I'm sure there will be plenty of big bad guys to blow up before this is done.

Edit:
I would have said more in the short reply but I didn't think I would have enough time to say it all before someone like Ramirez pulled the trigger.

I'm not willing to risk over half of our remaining margin of destruction on this door.  There will be plenty of krak and plasma flying around to get us up to 10% later on.

AC, can I assist Zilch in his check?

It's might be in my PM to AC in the thread but my check came up with 6 degrees of success on the Auspex.  That said unless you were tapped into my brain via MIU or I had a data-slate linked to my MIU port pulling up daa for you to see you prolly couldn't assist on the check like some others.

But damn if that isn't a great idea to get a separate data-slate with a hardwire link so that other people can also see his auspex data...

It *is* a great idea. Maybe the shop can whip something up for you like that after this mission, as a replacement for the thing you didn't ask for last mission? I'm cool with that. Would you want a data slate (poor or good craft) or a 3-D holo emitter (good or best)? Makes a difference you know. :)

Yes, TwoBit you may assist. I'll halve your DoF (if any) or add total DoS because he did so well initially.

Zilch, don't post again IC until I bring you up to speed during lunch break.

I was kinda hoping just for the +10/+1 DoS kind of assist... If it involves making a check of my own, may as well skip it since the odds of succeeding are so small :)

Sorry boss got excited :D

Well we were waiting on the krak concussion and frag blast from the mission before the mission, but if others like the idea of a best (ooohhhh shiny!) 3D Holo-emitter that I plug into my wrist MIU port to display auspex data that would be sweet.  Not very discrete to be sure but very useful.

I suppose a shiny 3D holo display could be our nifty piece of archaeotech if we (*ahem*) avoid blowing up the temple.

Keep in mind that once Zilch makes his new announcement of his scan results, you are all still in normal (not narrative) time. So the more you discuss and prep the more actions they can take inside.

Very busy and bad weather so I will not likely log in more than once per hour today.

Lascutter does 2d10+16 E Pen 10 vs stationary targets, so I think it will actually be faster than using krak if we need to break open the door.  It's a free action for me to whip it out and the average damage is nearly twice that of the grenade (av 27 vs 15) prior to subtracting AP.

I'm still liking plan "blow it up from a safer distance after everyone has established cover and firing lines"

Hey you want establish firing lines, setup overwatch and be ready to bring to bear death you can have at.  Not gainsaying you that but you should be able to do that now as Everest is moving towards the doors and Zilch is looking to jam the remote detonator.

Doors are heavy but as long as AC lets me order Everest using the 'other' orders section of the comrades bit to leverage himself he can open them.  I've got to stop the explosives from going off cause I don't want them destroying the doors any more than you. ;)

Sides you've got three hybrids and a lictor to deal with.

And I'm totally going to skin these lictors to net us some cameloline-like cloaks if you don't tear them apart too badly....mind Jansen or Command might take them from me but I'm gonna try.  Clearly the Catachan that were with the unit originally rubbed off on Zilch too much...but that's who he'll try and trade them to so we get 'official' ones that will be less likely taken from us just as those would be less likely taken from them.
