Glad you liked that, I'm channeling Sysco from the Flash TV series a little bit I think.

I'm not sure 'nodding' for Shade deserves a whole post on its own, so let's just say Hound's okay with the plan. :D
(In fact, she's gonna try to interpose between the goons and the hostages, as she's got her damn toughness to help shield them.)

Lol. You can do a lot with a nod. But I get it.

Just waiting to advance things on a concrete action - am I right in thinking Shade is going to try and disable one/both gunmen and Hound is going run interference? If you're settled on those actions go ahead and roll.

As for Plasti and Traveler how do you want to proceed? Traveler especially has one angry bird suit bearing down on him!

Actually, lemme rewind that. I'm hoping either Plasti or Trav defends, as my Superior is -1. I'm just gonna rush the guys when the smoke goes down.

Sorry, I thought I would have posted sooner.

Not seeing an action for distracting the bad guys; seems like I'm setting the stage to spend some Team on Shade's next roll, if necessary?

Might I suggest using 'defend another' as your action? (Or whatever it's called?) - The idea being you distracting the bad guys so the hostages don't get hit? Maybe with some sort-of bonus from Shade? (If I'm not overstepping bounds here)

I could see that going either way so you can choose how you want to play it - it's either an assist of Shade or a 'defend' action depending how you see it working.

Okay, I can see how that would work.  Hmm, let's try Defend.  Do something different, give the dice a chance to mess things up. :)  I'll edit my post.



Also, lookkit that!  They added me to the portraits and I've got an updated icon.



Edit:
Grr... shouldn't given those dice any ideas...

Yeah... them dice...

I think I'll give Hound and Shade a chance to react before I say anything more.

Hopefully, I'll respond in less than a week after that. :P

Sorry, guys- Just spent a rather frightening 36 hours in the hospital, and am now on 'take things -really- fucking slow' orders. So, posting may be that.

Is everyone on a busy week or is there anything I can clarify in the last post to make things easier?

Not a problem at all if everyone has stuff on but I just wanted to check you don't need anything more from me at the moment.

Traveler; your roll of five is actually a 'success' for taking a powerful blow so you to say how you weather the blow and respond. I'm happy for 'weathering' to involve breaking out of its grip here.

I've just got my depression issues, which are always followed by a few days of avoidance behavior for being disappointed in myself.  And I never seem to learn that other people don't care that much about me missing a week in an online game.  *sigh*

I'm with you, Plasti. Chronic depression since I was a kid, and ... Well, we did miss you. I know I did. (I get the guilt-avoidance thing, too. Lost a few games that way.)

Oh.  Yeah, sucks, don't it?  I've got meds for the anxiety and 'don't even want to get out of bed', but I still get days where writing a paragraph in character is too much work by the time I get around to it. :(

And I suppose that my language was a little mushy.  I meant care as in a 'make me feel bad for not keeping up with posts', as opposed to 'I'm sorry for your problems, I hope you feel up to making this game better.'  The former is unfortunate internalization from all the a-holes out there, the latter is welcome sympathy.

I live in the rainiest place in North America I think so I'm with ya on the depression all the way to the bank! I also have mood swings or 'crazy' days, as I like to call them. ^_^
