OOC: Shaked, Not Stirred II - Brilliant! So now we got a Hug

Dieter 2002-06-20 03:46:46
hehe... that's a neat site. I added some choice phrases to that android's vocabulary.
Gatac 2002-06-20 23:15:00
Well, after having my plans ruined by the need to watch my back, I'm not getting trashed in a foreign land like I planned. I'm going to pace myself but still have gun- er, I mean fun. :)
threadbare 2002-06-20 23:21:38
I want to get a good meal under my belt so it'll hold liquor better, and go around with the rest of the group before going to meet Hannah at the Spy Bar. If they want to come too, it's all apples.
Dieter 2002-06-20 23:30:14
Let's just cut to chase and say every had their fill at the restaurant and working on a 3-beer-buzz, except for Artis, who is mildly intoxicated but still could legally drive without getting a DUI.

Next Scene:

The Spy Club
Dieter 2002-06-22 09:43:00
It would help to know just what kind of netherworld this Swedish club scene is. Are we talking multi-tiered, with various princes of vice, or more of a swirling maelstrom of chaos and lost souls? Or, are we basically looking at an American techno club, except full of Swedes and ratcheted up to cinematic caliber?
Dieter 2002-06-23 19:40:18
The former. Imagine the club from the opening scence of Blade (Numero Uno)...minus the whole bloodbath and vampiric stuff.

Pretty crazy indeed.
Gatac 2002-06-24 21:28:11
Ugh, I know now why Goose didn't sign up as Faceman.

Dieter 2002-06-24 21:43:35
Yeah, but perhaps a pretty face could help defuse the situation.
Dieter 2002-06-24 23:34:04
No, he's not the most friendly guy. I'm trying to play his CHA 9, which isn't all that bad but he slips up sometimes, you know? :)
Dieter 2002-06-24 23:42:31
And Ulf and Lars are reacting to his 9 Charisma. Basically, Artis is trying to be Denzel Washington, but coming off as Chris Tucker.

Hooray for negative CHR modifiers! :(

Fortunately Jessica's 17 does help things, so her quasi-supermodel appearance will negate Artis' bad mojo.
Gatac 2002-06-25 00:04:37
Even if she gets almost killed every time in combat, it's worth it just for those moments. :)

Gatac 2002-06-25 01:34:27
Actually, unless something interesting happens to him, Gavin'll just be at a table, having a Guinness.
Dieter 2002-06-25 18:15:22
Goose's sense motive check (Natural 20, f-you Adam!:)) reveals quite a bit.

1) As if you didn't already know, but Artis' new lady friend(s) are part of Stockholm's finest in call-girls.

2) Artis doesn't think that Anja would be this "unprofessional" when it comes to keeping up morale (figuratively or literally)

3) A twosome can only mean trouble and these two ladies look like trouble with a capital "T".
Gatac 2002-06-25 18:22:23
In TEG terms, Art seems to have a -8 Enemy disadvantage *g*

Dieter 2002-06-25 18:26:12
This is player knowledge, but I'll have to say that not everyone you meet is out to kill you...but they may have ulterior motives.

Remember, you're spies not fish mongers...not to say that you shouldn't be mindful of shifty-eyed fish mongers. ;)

Ah...the thrill that is paranoia. :cheesy:
Dieter 2002-06-26 16:26:10
Artis is at the "impaired" stage of drunkeness. In gaming terms, I'd say you're -1 to all checks right now.
