Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
Yeah, you rolled okay and Nora helped. Now, if you were trying to take some pieces of evidence or something else controversial, things might go badly.

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
Yeah Nora, that sucks. Hope things are looking a little better for you, even if itís just those clouds clearing away. Depression, ennui... theyíll get you.

Iím a pretty staunch introvert and love love love my time to myself, but even I am looking forward to seeing people in Corona World. Itís pretty wild. So if itís like that for me, I know a ton of other people are feeling the isolation.

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
Ha! I'd just been thinking about body positioning from above. Once we get the projection info dump, I figure Nora will consider that as well, especially as the assailant seemed -really- set on making sure our boy was standing in a specific space in a specific way. Ritual murder, anyone?

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
Can I make a faction roll via calling a contact? Or do I have to go in person?

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
For 'Hit the Streets,' you absolutely must go out in person. For 'Put a Face to a Name,' you can do it as soon as you hear the name or meet someone new.

So I can put a face to a name on our murder victim, but because I have to describe the murderer I have to talk to someone directly. Got it.

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
It seems a bit stupid to me, but let's play with rules as written for now and see how that goes.

So Jake is going to hit up the local Wild bar. It'll probably be about 8 a.m. by the time you get there, but some people keep weird hours. Meanwhile, are Xavier and Nora going to go upstairs and check on the roof? You can roll mislead distract or trick, and one of you can help the other.

Do I need to roll to assist or how does that work?

Yeah, I was surprised too. Somehow she found the game we were all in and then followed the trail to where we are now.

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
So, just to clarify...

quote:
Much of the blood was contained by the bags, and Klaw's body is still covered in it when he was unwrapped on the ground. This may be contaminated for the purposes of magic, but possibly not. Danielle cannot be certain. She hesitates.


Is any of this possibly contaminated blood still available for a sample, or did Danielle completely miss her chance after the officer got ill?

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
Put it this way. At this point, you can either wait for a hypothetical future opportunity when the body will be left alone long enough for you to open up the bag and get at it long enough to be draw sample out from its flesh; or you can Damn the Torpedoes, open up the bag in plain sight, and do it while everyone's watching. This is the tough choice I'm making you make.

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
If you want to create a post in the thread for locations and characters that will have the information about a new character you've met, so that everyone else can see it as well, that's fine with me.

Is anyone finding it confusing that there are so many tell the thread publicly viewed? I can set them so that everyone can see only their own solo thread until they're finished.

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
So I know Jake's player is still playing. I'm pretty sure Xander's player is still trying to play. Do I have anybody else?

Roll call. If you haven't been posting, can you let me know if you're still playing by Saturday?

Re: To Light a Candle (Out of Character)
Jake, you can have 1 advance for being loyal.
I am recruiting some more players. The October thread will continue, but I will bring the new players in to a new story set in September.
