OOC: V - The Final Frontier

I'd like to go over an escape route, walk around the HoB and familiarize myself with it.
Dieter 2002-12-10 05:58:54
Since I've already cased the HoB and have all that Soldier tactical training, I'll put my head together with Artis on that escape route, as well.

Besides getting spiffied up for the show, I'll be packing my Kevlar vest (under the suit, of course, aren't those things designed to be unobtrusive?), gadget glasses (starlight and thermographic lenses) and my USP. The shotgun and appropriate ammo go in the trunk.

I hope post-9/11 casino security won't involve any nasty searches. The Agency gives us licenses for these things, right?

Funny you should mention the firearms permits. You do have them on record with your assumed identities, but that really doesn't matter since Nevada has very liberal concealed-carry laws. Something to the extent of

You can take my gun away when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

In a nutshell, that much means that you can get away with anything short of firing a weapon in a public place. Even then, if you plead self-defense, you'd still have a good chance of getting away with it. I think the worst you can get is a fine.

Murder and assault with deadly weapons are still crimes, so mind your background when you're shooting.
The Agency's not going to bail you out for such things.

This looks like it could get hot soon. Better try my best to distract our dear friends for a bit.

Gatac 2002-12-10 23:01:41
I'm going to give Stewie my best "what the hell are YOU lookin' at" face. Keeping an eye out for Tracy, Annie, or those taser goons.
Dieter 2002-12-10 23:28:46
Before I get to initiatives, I'd like point out a few things.

Everyone (except Andrew) rolled poorly on their checks to spot Andrew and James' innuendoed treachery.
The saving grace is that Artis was wearing armor and I rolled equally as poor for damage. (3 subdual dmg)



I'll post Harry and Brian's if/when someone at the tables notifies them. ;)
Dieter 2002-12-10 23:35:42
*golf clap*

Nice, Dave.

I'm gonna hit the fucker with the table.
Dieter 2002-12-11 00:09:24
I guess I missed, but my plan wasn't to throw the table. I wanted to smack him with it, melee style, retaining the table for subsequent attacks. :)
CrazyIvan 2002-12-11 00:55:53
When/if Brian finds out about the little chaos in the HoB (not SAS tactics...naughty Stewart)...I think Brian will find a disabling shot to the knee or a disarming shot to the elbow in order.
CrazyIvan 2002-12-11 03:49:28
What the hell? Can't at least one mission go according to plan?

We're pretty close, right? Can I go for a diving tackle and a pin attempt this round?
threadbare 2002-12-11 04:00:22
That's true. If you guys can avoid shooting anyone, it'd probably be better. Also, did Jess ever get one of those burst-transmission bugs or anything? If she could, this'd be a good time to warn buzzard to run, and run his ass off. I might call him and tell him to watch himself anyway, as the shit is hitting the fan.

Since our opponents seem to have the upper hand, think maybe I can distract everybody if I jam the mic into the speaker, making the bad bad feedback sound?
Dieter 2002-12-11 04:54:28
To clear some stuff up.

The table was pretty big and it didn't make for the best of melee weapons. Also, you rolled pretty bad on the attack roll.

Anyhoo...your overall plan has been going very well as of late. You actually gathered quite a bit of information and it was only after many small events did the shite hit the rotary occilator. And while your whole undercover operation is blown, the enemy is far from having the upper hand.

Gavin could easily go for a tackle on Stewart, that's not a problem. The fact that Jess is also there...and Artis for that matter means that the odds are not good for poor Andrew.

Next turn, we'll assume Harry and Brian are ready to go and can also join the party. Harry will be jamming the mic for that bad feedback sound.

As for not using good SAS tactics, Andrew's stealthy attempt at icing Artis was only fooled by crappy rolls and a very lucky spot roll by a member of the audience...grrr. ;)
Gatac 2002-12-11 06:37:03
I'm currently undecided between keeping my cover and therefore running away screaming (which, considering my luck in combat, should look pretty damn convincing), or I could just rationalize that after that little show, Andrew will likely be too paranoid not to see through me anyway, thus enabling me to spring my Colt out of the handbag and just get blasting at point blank.

I'd appreciate a small hint either way in terms of the chances, but if push comes to shove, someone flip a coin for me.

CrazyIvan 2002-12-11 06:48:03
If Stewart is subdued, the gun comes out but I'm certainly not opening fire unless Stewart is still enough of a threat.

Otherwise, just covering the party while we take care of him.
CrazyIvan 2002-12-11 15:06:27
Shoot Stewie twice in the head, Jess. We want James and keeping Andrew alive is a liability.
Dieter 2002-12-11 15:18:00
ADS, always with the guns...;)

Jess has yet to blow her cover and she (and Andrew) for that matter are pretty convinced that everything is kosher. If there will be any need for explanations, it will most likely be from Andrew, not Jess.

I mean, he's the one that has been the party pooper, not Jess.

Your choice Gatty.
Gatac 2002-12-11 18:11:20
Considering my luck with guns versus my luck with people, I'll go with the "run away screaming and hopefully not blow your cover" route.

Dieter 2002-12-11 18:45:04


Everyone also had to make a fortitude check for Harry impromptu sonic blast with the mic feedback. If you're listed below, you failed your save.

Andrew: Stunned for X (heh) rounds
Harry: Stunned for 4 rounds

Time to post your actions...
