Drone and Clone, Freak and Chic; when it's 11PM By Decree and the weekly ethanol ration just deployed, you know it's time for...

Good evening Diaspora! I'm Hazel Dang-Cobra Jr., and with me always is the Reverend Cawsey "Ocho" Rios, three time Micro-Grav Champion of the Hacktogon.

Good to be here, Hazel.

Welcome once more to the stately Pleasure Dome! Where sins are absolved, and winners live forever!*. We've scraped the lowest depths of the slumstacks, prison colonies and long-haul exile freighters, and brought the hungriest, most desperate contestants to you, our precious baby viewer!

This series' contestants are hungry for that luxe, Hazel. They're failures, prisoners, and mutants all, wretched to the last, and some might say entirely beyond redemption, but they've poured everything they have into getting this one last chance at redemption, or at least a stay of execution.

Well, this year's deadly rigs and lethal combat zones are going to make them work for it, that's for sure. The industry's best murderologists have slaved over their killing assets to make sure this is the best Wrecking Crew yet!

Strong words, Hazel. Strong, shapely words. I can't wait to see what toxic hellscape they dig up first. Hazel, are you ready for a scrap?

You took the words right out of my script, Rev; I was decanted ready. Dust off the shattered wreckage of your life, precious babies, It's time for Wrecking Crew!

Our mother Earth is a wasted heap, but that doesn't mean your life has to be! A bold new crop of contestants has arrived from all around the Diaspora looking for a chance to help reclaim our beleagered planet...and stack luxe to precarious heights. Contestants will dropped into a dangerous combat zone, riddled with hazards, enemies both mutated and mechanical, and precious, precious resources.
The goal? To reclaim salvage to bank precious Luxe, and to amass enough gear and power to take down the Zone Boss, a pants-making GBS threads Zodiac-Class Rig!
Go it on foot, or hop in a rig and ride to mechanized victory!
Impress the sponsors in hopes of a supply drop, or ride the night train as a dark horse!
Work together for a better tomorrow, or waste one another on sight, the choice is yours!

Our Wreckers are sorted into several "classes" by a standardized set of metrics, and assigned starting loadout based on their class. Additional classes can be unlocked in play, through an obscure and painful series of criteria!


Luminaries from around the Diaspora have gathered on Decree Station Alph to rub elbows and support their chosen Wreckers on the field of battle. Politicians, gangsters, titans of industry, and the fusest of celebs, all with their fingers on those drop-pod deployment consoles. Want to send medical aid to your embattled buddy? How about a fuel drop for a flagging fave? Or just order an airstrike and watch everyone eat poo poo; this is Wrecking Crew!

Wreckers: Make a post listing your name, portrait, class, and Orokos rolls for loadout. When you see your name and vitals on the broadcast, you're in!
Since the game is round-based, if you play a wrecker, you'll want to keep up.
The game updates Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday!

Sponsors: Just participate in the thread. If you don't have a Wrecker on the board (or perhaps if you do; see the Rules), you can post as a sponsor! Wreckers will upload luxe from the combat zone that you can use to send materiel support...or "support"! RP in the thread, create experimental new items, and present bonus challenges for the players!
Unlike wreckers, sponsors have no expectation of involvement; jump in and out as you like!

The primary rule of Wrecking Crew is simple:
The Target Number is 4. Abilities and items may change this, but 4 is the default target number for any action, regardless of die size.
Upscale increases the max value of a die by 2, i.e. 1D6 to 1d8 or 1d14 to 1d16. Upscales beyond 1d20 instead increase damage by 1.
Downscale decreases the max value of a die by 2, to a minimum of 1d4.

Full Sponsors (anyone in-thead without a Wrecker on the board) will receive a 5 Luxe stipend every round (not phase) they post in the thread.

Sponsors may use their own or a Wrecker's uploaded luxe to purchase one of the items listed below at any time, which will be delivered during sponsor phase (with the exception of the Airstrike, which will occur during Hazard phase of the next round).
Luxe spent on deliveries must come first from the Sponsor's account, before wrecker accounts may be depleted.

Sponsor Menu posted:

Drone Delivery (SHOT): Sends a specific Supply item to a specific Wrecker and makes a 1d6/2 attack on a random enemy in their hex. 25+Supply Rating Luxe.
Drone Delivery (HEAL): Sends a specific Supply item to a specific Wrecker and restores 1 HP to them. 25+Supply Rating Luxe.
Drone Delivery (???): Experimental drones with other properties can be sent; see examples in the thread or ask in the Discord for more details.
Experimental Items: A dangerous beta version of an item with altered properties can be sent on any drone; the Supply cost is halved, though the drone cost remains unchanged.

Supply Drop: Drops a crate granting a 1d20 roll on Supply in target hex. 25 Luxe.
Exfiltrate Wrecker: Safely evacuates a Wrecker (but no items) currently occupying a Strato-Cradle. 25 Luxe.
First Exfiltrated Item: +10 Luxe.
Second Exfiltrated Item: +20 Luxe.
Additional Exfiltrated Items: +30 Luxe each.
Exfiltrate γ Rig: Evacuates a non-enemy γ rig currently occupying a Strato-Cradle to the Rig Rack. Does not include a Mounted wrecker. 25 Luxe.
Exfiltrate β Rig: Evacuates a non-enemy β rig currently occupying a Strato-Cradle to the Rig Rack. Does not include a Mounted wrecker. 50 Luxe.
Airstrike: Target a hex for aerial bombardment; surrounding hexes may also suffer collateral strikes. 50 Luxe.
Rig Drop (γ): Deploy a rig from the Rig Rack in target hex, or to target Wrecker, who may Mount freely as part of the delivery. 15 Luxe.
Rig Drop (β): Deploy a rig from the Rig Rack in target hex, or to target Wrecker, who may Mount freely as part of the delivery.Re 35 Luxe.

Sponsor Inventory
Sponsors may collect certain items; blueprints, treasures, etc., sent to them from the wrecking field, which can be displayed in their posts in the way Wreckers do so. These items may be traded (observing Limited Sponsor rules), used for research or experimentation, or delivered (items without an indicated or Supply Value cost 20L before drone) according to Sponsor wishes.

Sponsor Challenges!
A Sponsor begins with 1 Challenge Slot. A second slot may be unlocked for 5 Luxe from that Sponsor's account only, and further slots cost an additional +5 per slot (3rd slot for 10L, 4th for 15, etc.)
Challenges may comprise almost anything, but are encouraged to either promote interesting play, introduce challenging or entertaining complications, further an RP metaplot, or all of the above!
A successful Challenge nets the completing Wrecker 10L, and the posting Sponsor 5L. Additionally, a Sponsor may post additional reward Luxe from their account at the time of posting to sweeten the pot.
Particularly challenging or noteworthy challenges may receive additional rewards on completion, by fiat of the Producers of Wrecking Crew!
Sponsors may post 1 "Repeatable" challenge, which can be fulfilled multiple times. This earns the Wrecker 5L, with the reward reduced by 1L each time until the challenge is "exhausted". At this time, the Sponsor gains the usual +5L reward.

Limited Sponsors have an active Wrecker in play, and can still accrue Luxe in their account and pose challenges, but cannot spend Luxe on anything but Slots.
Full Sponsors, however, can dip into Limited accounts with impunity, but not their Inventory.

>Exclusive Sponsorships!
1 Wrecker and 1 Sponsor may, by mutual agreement, enter into an Exclusive Sponsorship!
1. The Wrecker in question may not have their Luxe spent by anyone other than their Sponsor without permission from the Sponsor. Non-Exclusive Sponsors wishing to access funds of the patronized Wrecker must pay a 5L royalty to the Exclusive Sponsor for each delivery so funded.
2. The Wrecker's Device is granted functionality to upload Luxe anywhere with an Action!
3. A Sponsor's stipend is increased to 10 on rounds when their Wrecker earns awards or bounties!
4. A Sponsor with an Exclusive gains a thematic bonus that they may apply to their deliveries!
5. Exclusive Sponsors gain exclusive distribution of a branded and improved version of a standard Supply item appropriate to their domain. Other sponsors wishing to deliver the item in question must pay a 5L royalty to the Exclusive Sponsor.
6. Exclusives may be ended at any time by mutual consent; a Sponsor may unilaterally end an Exclusive at any time, but a Wrecker must Litigate to do so.

Wreckers may move up to their listed Move stat, unless halted by a revealed Encounter or Ambush.
Hazard Encounters may trigger upon entry to their hex if applicable.
Please CONCEAL your movements in your posts.
>Aim – If no Movement is taken, subject gains one upscale on the next Encounter Phase.

Wreckers resolve any revealed encounters and engage in combat.
>Attacks roll the associated die and deal the associated damage. Damage Reduction reduces the total summed damage taken in the phase, not damage per attack.

>Boost – If no Encounter occurs, in the next Action Phase subject gains either +1 to any HP restoration, +1 Luxe per die on Salvage, the ability to make both a Wide and Tight Scan, or +1 to a miscellaneous ACT roll.

Hunker*: Hunker is a bonus system and may have uncertain results! Dig in and take shelter against an upcoming Hazard. This may provide some measure of safety against an event occuring during Hazard Phase.

5. HAZARD PHASE (HAZ): Environmental hazards, perilous map events, and status Tokens all activate at this time.

Tokens posted:

Environmental hazards, periodic damage, persistent debuffs, and similar effects are represented by Tokens. Hazard DR allows possession of appropriate tokens equal to its rating before negative effects are felt. Some examples:

Air: 1 Air Token is removed each HAZ spent in an airless environment. A wrecker with no Air at the start of HAZ while in such an environment suffers 2 damage.

Buff Each Buff Token provides an upscale and a temporary HP that is lost first in the event of damage. If not removed by damage, 1 Buff Token decays each HAZ.

Shock: Each Shock Token Upscales Scrap and Disable attacks on the holder.
Shock is lost when they Upscale an attack, or may be removed as an ACT, causing 1 damage per token lost.

Freeze: Suffer downscales equal to Freeze possessed. When Freeze equals current HP on HAZ, subject suffers 1 damage.
1 Freeze is lost each HAZ spent in a non-cryonic environment.

Burn: Attacks deal 1 additional damage per Burn, and each Burn deals 1 damage on HAZ. 1 Burn may be extinguished as an ACT.
Rigs collect Burn Tokens asymptomatically, but when Burn Tokens exceed Rig Max HP, pilots begin to suffer the overflow.

Rad: 1 Rad Token is lost each HAZ, dealing 1 damage to Max HP.

Poison: Suffer 1 damage each HAZ. Any healing received also purges all Poison.

Warp: A subject without a purple-bordered card that possesses Warp is visible to D-Scans as if purple-bordered, and D-powers are upscaled against them. When Warp Tokens equal Max HP on HAZ, subject suffers a D-Crisis, and may find themselves and/or their gear harmed, altered, or transported.

Spore: Spore Tokens reduce effective Hazard DR by 1 per Token. Spore Tokens increase by 1 each HAZ. Spore Tokens may be removed by taking damage from Burn or from a Plasma attack.

Break: Reduces DR by 1. Spending an ACT to repair removes 1 Break Token, while any use of a Fabrikit or other repair item removes all Break Tokens.

Infest: When the number of Infest Tokens possessed is equal to current HP, a non-transformed subject is subject to a metamorphosis. A transformed subject may also accrue Infest Tokens, and has a 1d4 chance to transfer them when in an ENC with non-transformed targets. A medikit may be discarded for a 1d6 chance to remove 1 Infest Token.

Wreckers engage in combat by declaring one of the following actions:

Attack: Roll weapon attacks and resolve simultaneously.

Special Attacks posted:

Ambush: Ambush attacks (gained from Ambush ACT order) resolve and deal damage before the main attack sequence, at which point the Ambusher take a normal ENC order.
Sneak Attack: Attacking a Scanned inactive encounter from Range bestows any mechanical benefits gained from Ambush, but does not bestow the premptive extra Ambush attack.
Charge: A Charge attack (gained from abilities or gear) has top priority, resolving before any other non-Ambush attacks or effects, but damage from Charges is calculated with that of the other attacks in the main attack sequence.
Cover: Dice are scaled down when attacking you; immunity to Forced Movement, Disabling attack riders, and attack riders inflicting tokens.
Suppress: Spend attack to scale down all enemy attack dice.
Retreat: Spend attack to move away one hex.
Improvise: Spend attack to roll 1d6 on Improv Table.

Increase Move by 1
Upgrade a Mutation
Upgrade a Cyber

Veteran Talents:

>Spawn a Challenge or Enemy that rewards a Relic (retired Wrecker's Signature Weapon) or other special item.
>Increase Aug Threshold by 1 for the duration of the map.
>Deploy an additional Starting Package as a Round 1 Drop.
>Deploy a Gamma Rig (GM-determined and suitable for the map) as a Round 1 Drop.

Hazel: It must be intimidating, to know you're about to be hurled into a life-or-death struggle, in an unforgiving toxic wasteland, against enemies ten times bigger than you are. Can you imagine?

Cawsey: Well, the Wreckers are all administered a healthy cocktail of potent sedatives and muscle relaxants before their drop. You know, Hazel, you want to be as loose as possible when you plow into the earth like the fist of a vengeful space god.

Hazel: And I suppose it's nice to go out happy if your braking thrusters and drag chutes fail and you dig your own grave at 12,000 kph. Not that that's happened since Series 4...

Cawsey: Though there was Series 6, when the explosive bolts on Jobro Deel's pod hatch failed to detonate, if I recall correctly.

Hazel: Poor bastard boiled like a soykaf. Speaking of, while our Wreckers are poured into their drop pods, let's go to Field Observer Eurydice Mann-Chong down planetside, to tell us about tonight's theatre of conflict. Scintillate us, Eury!"

Eurydice: Hazel, it's hard to believe that this dried up turd of a landscape was once a sparkling, healthy sea! You might think ol' Eury's is plunking your twanger.
But then explain all the boats, Hazel, explain all the boats!
I am many things to many enforcement agencies, but never a twanger-plucker, friends. Never a twanger-plucker.

Hazel: I think the heat may be getting to Eury; we'll come back to--

Eurydice: Let me finish, you bob-headed tank-job! SALT.

Eurydice: Here in this parched seabed, the skeletons of commerce lay bare for the taking. Wreckers will deploy along the Southern and Eastern reaches of the map, and that is also where the five Strato-Cradles can be found if things get a little too hot for them.

Shipwrecks abound, many still loaded with valuable resources, ripe for the harvesting.

Reports of scavenger camps in the north (08.00; 05.03) have been confirmed by our recon spotters, possibly a source of materiel support, or a shallow grave!

At (09.00), enterprising Wreckers will find the Luxe Crucible, where they can convert gear and upload luxe to the Sponsors in forlorn hope of aid!

Towering over the ruin at (07.05) is that precarious aerial we call the Scan Tower, ideal for getting an unobstructed view of your scenic environs, and the friendly people who inhabit it!

I hope you popped your rad-bans if you poke around near (10.05)! An old submarine is marooned here, a monument to the follies of ancient, poorly-organized, un-televised warfare! Who knows what treasures this stinking carcass holds? The whole area surrounding it is a radioactive shitshow, though, so look out!

But while you're exploring this quaint locality, keep your head-joints fully articulated, because SALT's roaming midboss rig would be happy to tear them off for you! That's right, an αlpha Titan, not content to sit and wait, is roaming these cracked flats looking for Wrecker rear end to stomp!

Finally, head up Northwest, and you'll find the ruins of the old coastal refineries. A good place for a fuel cache, or an Ambush! And at (00.00), in that crumbling prosperity graveyard, you'll find the Zodiac Beacon. Death is certain if you activate the Beacon and summon this map's boss, but remember that whichever Wrecker does so claims an additional 50 Luxe bounty!

Cawsey: Good poo poo. Compelling poo poo. Tell us about the Zodiac, loving Eurydice.

Eurydice: Hold on to your potatoes, because this is where the real Wrecking Crew starts. This bottomland's king rear end-hander is...

Eurydice: The return of an old favorite: The 3066-B Cancer! This hulking Dredge-Excavator was born to tear it up. 360 degree mobility, with a massive steel-shearing claw capable of tearing the hull off a fuel tanker and an earth-moving shovel more than capable of digging the grave of what's left of the Wreckers that got too close.
Add to that an ultra high pressure water cannon, and a full payload of demolition drones, and no one is safe from the ravages of Cancer!

Wreckers, death and glory await in SALT. But mostly death. Hazel?

Hazel: Thanks, Eury. Looks like quite the run ahead of us, wouldn't you say, Cawsey?

Cawsey: A real snallygaster, Hazel. Let's hope our Wreckers are feeling no pain right now, because there's going to be plenty to go around soon enough.

Slots are still available!

Stranger burst from his pod, generating temporary musculature to project him outwards. He needed a weapon. He needed to hide. To hide until he could kill from the darkness and escape with the riches of another. He picked a direction and ran.

As the bolts blew from his pod, Stev clambered out cheerfully. Holy poo poo! The pod hadn't fallen apart on the way down, and they'd given him drugs beforehand to make the ride easier! This was way better than the Moon Wars! He hadn't even known that the technology existed for pods that made it all the way to the ground!

He gave the surroundings a quick survey, slotted his scope onto his pistol, in true Moon War fashion, and dashed off into the distance, followed by camera drones. No point sticking around, it wasn't like they'd drop him right on top of the loot. That wouldn't be any fun!

Name: Kal Risso, Newtype HP: 5/5 Move: 3
Loadout: Squidpack, Patient Zero, Brachial Spurs

With a steel-toed boot, Kal Risso kicked at the hatch of his drop pod until the servos dropped and hitched squarely into place. With a rattling thunk, a lurch, and a deafening hiss of hydraulics, the bolts blasted out and the hatch was released, jettisoning the door and the pod's contents unceremoniously onto the floor of the bitter desert wasteland known as Salt. Kal uncoupled his ejection seat's restraining belts and righted himself in mid-sprawl. He dusted his leather bomber jacket off and surveyed the bleakness of his surroundings.

What an ugly place, Kal thought. Dry bones, derelict shipwrecks, and endless desolate salt flats as far as the eye could see. Kal swore a Teluvian curse and watched with bemused curiosity as one of the hovering camera drones nearby beeped and bobbed angrily in his direction, as if insulted. He swatted at the thing and it veered far away, gaining air and tracking him from way outside his spurs' attack range. This was just not going to be his day.

The drugs and neurostabilizers that had been pumped into Kal at the moment of his drop-pod's orbital release were already starting to wear off. He moved toward the nearest visible landmark he could spot in the distance. With his heightened endurance and superhuman constitution, his initial trek through the barren wastes should prove to be no problem.

Sweet parallax! Did you see that, Hazel?

That, dear Reverend, was almost curtains for Johnson and Ansahok.
The groan from our Sponsor's Lounge was audible when those two out-of-control pods plowed smoking ballistic trails a hair's-breadth from one another! Don't pound that Dislike just yet, gentle viewers; with all the pod-scatter, it looks like Stev and Midge are right on top of each other. Could we be seeing a first-round elimination in the making?

Wouldn't be the first, Hazel, and it won't be the last.

So no instant flaming disqualifications this time, but they call this first segment The Funnel for a reason. Our Wreckers are packed in tight, and who knows how their drugged-out, drop-battered minds will react to first contact?

Moves to 03.05!

Shabash! That shipwreck is heavy with sweet, sweet salvage!

Heavy with salvage, and strewn with unexploded warheads from the Water Wars III-IV! And...what's that? It looks like Bobby-Jack's digging has disturbed a squad of Gamma Enforcers!

Somebody's gonna blow up tonight, Hazel. I can feel it in my bones and organs.

No hostiles, though...what's our mu...uh, newtype here gonna make of this...Is that some kind of wizard, Hazel?

The world has moved on, dear Ocho.

Risso finds an unfortunate fellow traveleler in this doomed spiral of desire and regret, and it looks like he's pinned down by...Aw, here we go! Here we go!

A Beta Enforcer! I'd wondered if we were going to see any Betas on the first map.


Delta's pod hasn't opened...dare we hope for a malfunction?

He could've just blacked out from the G-Forces. Or it's a cunning Ambush. Or he's dead already.

Better hope he makes a move before the lung bandits catch up with him!

Looks like Scramble might be poached. I doubt all the king's horses and all the king's men...something something land mines.

Assuming he doesn't blow up, he's still got to contend with those muties tracking him down across the flats and cracking open his skull for that spicy, spicy head-meat! Broof'n!

The moment was tense. A bead of sweat meandered its way from under Bobby-Jack's helmet as his hand caressed the handle of his gun, the man furiously trying to decide which of the four enforcers to shoot first.


Their visors did glint pretty menacingly in the sun, didn't they?


Being filled by lead from four directions at once, this was the most likely outcome, yes?


After a moment of deliberation, Bobby-Jack, thus far having stood still like a statue, made a lightning fast movement and pulled the trigger. On his Squidpack, that is, releasing a huge, inky-black cloud. A moment later, a sprinting man could be seen emerging from it, the cam-droids capturing what seemed to be the clear trails of desperate tears of terror making their way from under his goggles.

Some things just weren't worth dying for.

I would like to say that Vesuvius Space BBQ supplies has managed to have some marketing budget freed recently, so we are looking to spread our BRAND to the fine people watching the Wrecking Crew. We're going to look to try to inform the amazing contestants about the win-win situation that might happen should they find an opportunity for some product placement.

Cut loose before the god eaters show up.


Scramble pauses, head cocking at a glinting shape nearby. She gets that sinking feeling only felt by people who have trudged deep into a minefield before noticing. A rare but potent emotion. Shuck it, this isn't good.

A deep, distorted chuckling sounds from a twisted drift of sheet metal and caked grit to her right. Several abhumans are slinking from cover. Two have the twisted and boil covered physique of the helix-doomed. They're chaff. The larger shape is healthier or least not immediately degenerating. The basso chuckle rumbles from its drooping proboscis. It points at her and then makes a hideous slurping noise.

Well that concludes the diplomatic portion of this encounter. Running away in a minefield seems an exercise in rapid self-deletion. And the snouted one could no doubt sniff out her trail even if she made it clear.

Two problems. Maybe one solution. Scramble shuffles warily into position, edging close to the mine that had caught her eye. With a prayer and swift kick, she flicks the mine at the abhumans.

Improvise: 1d6 3 -Toxic Zone!

Or at least that was the plan. The mine sails past the mutants into their festering lair. There's a crumping explosion and hideous green smoke comes boiling out. What the shell were they stockpiling in there?

(So I have no idea if I'm doing combat right here. I'm assuming without a weapon I can't attack, but wasn't sure if there are restrictions on improvising. Also not sure what a toxic zone does but sounds fun)

No worries, you're golden.
Toxic zones deal 1 damage during hazard phase.

Because it may be shortly relevant, to avoid potential headaches, PVP Attack rolls will be rolled by me.

Dinosaur Gum

Name: Kal Risso, Newtype HP: 5/5 Move: 3
Loadout: Squidpack, Patient Zero, Brachial Spurs

Kal Risso circled warily around the perimeter of the ancient metal gunships' wreckage, seeking out some piece of valuable scrap or an obvious crate of ordnance worthwhile enough that he could salvage it for some precious luxe. What he found instead was something far less inert and far more dangerous than he had ever considered encountering this early into the game: a Beta Enforcer, sitting in the center of the ruins on high alert, deeply engaged in its patrol//attack protocol. The β Rig seemed strangely fixated on scanning one particular region of the zone for threats, keeping its gun raised. What could it possibly be seeking out? Was it protecting something? Kal stealthily circled around the Beta Enforcer's position to get a better view. There was no way he could take out a Beta Enforcer on his own, not with his current arms. If this solitary Enforcer Rig turned his way, he'd have to pull the cord on his Squidpack and run.

As he got closer to the β Enforcer's apparent region of interest, Kal heard a faint, choked voice, straining itself to be heard against the whipping desert winds.

"Oh, is that someone there? Thank God - I thought I was going to die out here alone!"

Kal moved closer to the rasping voice, being overly cautious to avoid the Enforcer's scanners. He didn't have the heart to say it, but there was no God to be thankful for - certainly not here.

"Can you move?" Kal called out. "That Enforcer is looking for threats in your exact position."

The reedy voice lashed out, desperate, "I know - p-please! Help me. I'm a ... a soldier-for-hire. I know the secret location of a treasure, I just need some first aid or a Medikit to get me on my feet."

Kal didn't have a Medikit and his first aid knowledge was rudimentary at best. If he stayed here too long, that Enforcer Rig was going to come swinging around and it would attack them both with impunity. There's no way they'd both make it out of here alive. Not today.

"I can't help you, friend. All I can do is create a diversion for us both, if you can still move, now's the time to get up and RUN!"

Kal Risso pulled the zip cord on his Squidpack and ran between cover and into the distance through a thick cloud of inky nanotechnicolor blackness.

Was that... it was! Another wrecker! What luck, to have already found a friend out in these blighted wastes!

"Hey! You! Hello there! Lovely day for some scrounging, isn't it! Hell of a ride down, I think we must have nearly--oh bollocks" Stev shouted, jauntily waving with his pistol, until the drat hunk of junk misfired, sending a bullet ricocheting off to who knows where in the mountains of junk. "Sorry about that! It's not the greatest gun, but it's got sentimental value to me."

There was an odd metallic pinging and twanging somewhere nearby, What was that? It was almost like... like... oh god, it was on the tip of his tongue. Oh! Like the time they'd accidentally collapsed that bridge along their own escape route! The cables snapping had sounded just like that! That's funny, why would he be hearing that now? Must be a drug-induced flashback. Ah well.

"Anyways, it looks like we've got a long day ahead of us. I was thinking maybe we could check out that wreck over there together, see what that's all about. Work out a fair deal. Sound good to you?"

Hey, the pinging stopped! But now there was that horrible groaning noise. Stev frowned. Had the other guy heard him over that?


A nearby tower of cars finally crossed the tipping point, raining down on the area. Whoops.

Improvise!: 1d6 1

Yam Slacker


The burly junker watched the other wrecker dispassionately, heeding his actions and words alike. Once he'd said his piece, Midge shrugged, and replied,

"Sure, even split, works for me."

Resolve by not being an enemy in the zone and agreeing to work together as suggested.

But People have fears that beasts do not. Questions, too.


Stranger dropped to all fours, his joints clicking noisily into new positions, one after the other. His snout extended and swiveled as he considered the area he found himself in - plenty of scrap (and unexploded ordnance) and also... he rolled away from the Wwizard, hissing. He didn't trust the fellow, and he made it known with a territorial display, but he didn't make a violent case of it. Who knew what the man could unleash - firewalls? Daemons? There was terror in the unknown, and until he had means of defending himself he wouldn't make contact.

Doing absolutely nothing because I want to loot!

Operative delta stalks out of his pod, no clue on his face showing the delay. He quickly moves forward towards his target.

Move to 06.09, Salvage if possible.

We can't take late moves for logistical reasons, but you'll be able to do the second thing you posted (but in your current hex) during Action Phase.
