summed up the vault/red/jackie/magpie plan as best I could to make sure i get it

MY PAPER SOLDIERS
FORM A WALL

TWICE AS TALL


To provide some clarifying detail of what I was thinking: Magpie has taken over an isolated department store type building, where the structures around it have collapsed. So it's defensible with only a couple ways in - the front door, and some doors on the old loading docks. Magpie keeps the slaves on the first couple floors up from ground so it's harder for them to get out.

On like the second floor or so, near the slave pens, there's an old fire escape door that's supposed to have been bricked up, but isn't. The fire escape itself has been removed, though, and the door only opens from the inside. Hence the plan.

well the 'verter has been pretty well messily uninstalled from wherever it was already - that's why it's sitting on the table - but it's still (probably) intact, just with wires and cables sticking out of it, since whoever did it didn't want to mess with the connections per se

That's about what I expected to happen.

So given who Vault is, even though it's probably a bad idea I was going to try and take the gun from Jackie and then kill everybody. Would that fall under the new Seize by Force?

Yes. Jackie's revolver is a big fuckin gun and it's 3-harm, ap since it's at your face; Walter's rifle is 2-harm but he is fighting in close quarters so he's not likely to get a shot off, honestly.

I rolled an 8 and am choosing:
You take definite and undeniable control of it.

I'm leaning towards:
You inflict terrible harm (+1harm).

but since I also have NOT TO BE hosed WITH I'm not sure I need the extra damage.

For narrative purposes, I was also wondering if I should just describe killing Jackie and Walter?

Captain Foo
May 11, 2004

devil on your shoulder





Clever Betty

hm well... I think NOT TO BE hosed WITH doesn't apply in this case since it's not really a pitched battle, if that makes sense. Jackie's gun does 3-harm, which is enough to kill either of them. If you want to cleanly kill them both, you might want to pick up an extra harm. or one of them might survive, since you need 4-harm to reliably kill two NPCs.

Unless you're interested in talking to either of them, you can go ahead and kill them both, though.

Makes sense. I'll grab the extra harm then - it's definitely Vault's MO to "solve" this problem by making everyone dead. And then realize it's created a whole bunch more problems.

Post up soon.

Well, I have "gently caress This poo poo" so I'll risk it.

EDIT: I'm imagining the revolver is immediately identifiable as "Jackie's gun." Which brings up a question - is it AP inherently, or due to the ammo she was using? If it's inherent then I'd take it but not if it's the ammo.

Before I try to get the gently caress out, I want to make sure I follow the trade offs for my options.

Option 1: Try to find more stuff in here before I split, will definitely end up fighting some of Jackie's goons.

Option 2
: Head West, this is the safest but it'll take a while to loop back around anywhere else. Will avoid Jackie's goons, but might run into some of Magpie's.

Option 3: Head South, this will get to me to medical attention fastest. But I'll probably run into Jackie's goons, and it'll take me a while to loop back East (on top of whatever time medical takes).

Option 4 (?): Head East, this will get me to Red's soonest. But I'll probably run into Jackie's goons, and it'll take a while to loop back South to get medical attention.

Does that sound about right?

My main question is, how soon do I need to get to medical attention? Also I'm assuming I only get the +1 for acting on Option 2, given my question.

1. nailed it
2. nailed it

re: medical attention. it's gonna get worse the more active you are. I'll say if you enter combat, you automatically will take 1-harm ap at the end of combat, assuming you otherwise survive.
