Hey, weren't we planning on Artis and Brian breaking into Stewart's room, and tapping his phone. Maybe we could just tap it at the floor or hotel junction box? Also, my mission gear includes a data bug (bugs a computer and sends the information to another nearby computer), a police scanner, and a sweet cell phone signal interceptor.
• Cell Phone Signal Interceptor: With a successful
Surveillance check (DC 20 + any applicable modifiers),
this briefcase-sized item may be used to listen in on any
cell phone’s frequency within 20 miles, with no chance of discovery. Phone numbers called with the monitored
cell phone may be identified by the tones of the numbers dialed. The interceptor may also be used to
monitor all cellular calls on any particular frequency
within the same range. When an agent uses the interceptor in this fashion, he must identify what criteria
he’s looking for (use of the term ‘shazbot,’ for example),
and make a Surveillance check with a DC determined by
the local cell phone congestion (DC 15 in an open area
with few cell phones, 20 in a small town with only hun-dreds, or 30 in a metropolis with thousands or tens of
thousands). The interceptor only picks up cell phones
within 20 miles, and loses the signal of those that pass
outside that range.
If buzzard could make use of the cell signal interceptor (he might not have it, since it costs 15 budget points), I'll entrust it to him.
I'll case the House of Blues while Harry's pulling himself together. We'll need to be aware of the environment if/when things go sour. I'm also eager to meet the new teammate. No doubt we'll hit it off as Soldiers, and I'm eager to hear his mission record. Hopefully, it's better than ours.
