To be fair, the only thing I had planned for today in game was the Mech attack and relaxing in the water park.

Something I learned from d&d, if given the opportunity, your players can and will contort the plot rails into a pretzel, and/or just jump straight off them.

I mean I'm not complaining, it definitely keeps you on your toes, unsure of what will happen next. But I can't help feel Ulrich and Tatiana's comments about the assassins not having a plan and just haphazardly throwing the kitchen sink at them sounds almost like a meta joke directed at me. :lol:

So I have to get up early tomorrow to go visit my mom in Michigan (we’re going to see Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions!), so I might not be able to post until late. Just an FYI.

Hey guys. Rook's been having internet problems and then got the flu. Rook is still recovering so let's send him some support and get well wishes.

Because she isn't an infant mentally. She's got the mind of a 7 year old, which is plenty old enough to understand what he was saying. He wasn't trying to talk to her like an adult. He was talking to her like a child who needs to know why what she did was bad. He spoke calmly and with understanding of her situation, making the pount clear and simple so she would understand if she wasn't running on instinct.

Geesh, i was joking. relax. you did notice this guy right? -> :lol:

Though, while we're on the subject.

Mental capacity does not equate to experience, nor is mental capacity in her case a fixed point, It's more like an average of multiple states. When she first woke up she was acting like a teenager, at the party she regressed to the mindset of a child. Now she's overreacting and regressing further, because she's scared and doesn't know how to deal with that because she's never experienced it before. Almost all of the Kall she's constructed from were floaters; blood-borne Kaal that that don't carry any memory or cognitive skills beyond what they need to communicate with the rest of the colony, and are just there to harvest nutrients for the colony from the blood and keep the immune system down. Worker ants basically. So she didn't inherit any cognitive skills from Kobor beyond his knowledge of linguistics.

Also Kaal psychology was intentionally designed to be alien to the way humans think, so comparisons are at best generalizations. Her father basically got half his brain ripped out, and all it did was mess up the emotional capacities and stabilities of both halves. Something that would actually fix itself if they stayed apart a few months and re-learned the corrupted cognitive skills. (okay, yes, not as easy as it sounds.) In a human that would be a life-long debilitating injury, if not immediately terminal.

I’m rather curious as to how June’s luck will react to the potential upcoming slaughter. Would it favor short term benefits and help her attack whoever’s in the food court, or will it go for long term results and prevent her from seriously injuring anyone?

There is no one injured in the food court. Hivemind turned on a replicator and it's pumping replicated blood and fish bits into the water there to lure her in so that Hivemind can keep her away from anyone she might hurt.

Oh. I guess I misread the post. Though I still would like an answer to that question. Would her luck make her fail at her current task if succeeding would be bad for her in the long run?

short term. if it was long term it would have prevented past bearers from abusing it since that eventually got them killed.

Just in case my last couple posts confused anyone, homes, apartments, and other private areas are not monitored except for by emergency scanners that only send Hivemind data when there is an emergency detected. Hannabell is in a safehouse, which has a higher hive presence than a normal house.

I think people are starting to end their days. Rook ended his, I think Buster ended hers, so we should probably start wrapping up our days. I'll trigger a new day once that's done.

My new character, based on Trinity from STEELHAVEN!

Name: Traci Shwarte (Codename: Trinity)
Species/Breed: Tortoiseshell (Felis?)
Gender: Female
Age: 26 (Human Years)
Height: 3.2"
Location/Neighborhood: Beacon of Hope (Non-HPU)

Powers: High Velocity Speed. Can run at Mach speeds (Up to around Mach 10, which is 12,251 Km/h) and has just as fast reaction times. Can utilise speed to deliver hard hitting attacks. (Uses melee weapons for better damage)

Weakness: Can tire out after prolonged use of Mach speeds.

Appearance: Very slender yet toned body, mostly flat. Usual Tortoiseshell fur pattern with an interesting triangle patch covering the right side of her face. Both her eyes are light blue. Traci's outfits are as follows;
Casual: Workout gear, mostly.
Sleepwear: Sports bra & sweatpants
Swimwear: Navy blue one-piece with white stripes down the sides.
Formal: Black party dress with matching handbag.
Combat: Navy blue bodysuit with dark grey combat armour and boots.

Personality: Energetic, carefree and air-headed. Traci can be be a little unbearable sometimes because of the speed she talks and her overly excited mannerisms. She also works out a lot and keeps herself fit. Other than that, she's kind, friendly, and bubbly.

Background: Has lived on the Beacon almost as long as Rika has. Originally joined the Beacon's security force, but was transferred to the Champions intelligence division due to the usefulness of her power to transfer physical data. She has wanted to join the Champions proper since joining the CID, but lacks the motivation to actually ask..

Notes:
- Is the family friend who made Rika's combat outfit.
- Has a surprisingly good memory for facts and information, although she forgets the simpler things..
- Really enjoys eating salads and healthy foods.

S.P.E.C.I.A.L:
S: 3 "I'm strong, just not that strong.."
P: 7 "What? Is there something on my face?"
E: 5 "Huff! 3 hours on treadmill.. Maybe I should do something else.."
C: 8 "..And that's when Clara said.."
I: 4 "I have those files for you, but.. Why are they in gibberish?"
A: 10 "Obstacle course? Done!"
L: 6 "Whoops, almost stepped in that.."

Power: 6

Color: This: #FF4040

Looks good, Rook! The only issue I might have is that if she was originally part of the Beacon's security force, she would already be a champion since the beacon's security consists of champions and hive-droids. Major beacon security issues are distributed as cases and jobs for the champions, like the issue that ballooned into a zombie apocalypse.

Ah..

Well, I thought there would be an internal security for the districts of the ship as well as the champions for stuff like minor disputes and general policing. You don't need champions for that kind of stuff. Although, I understand you can use hive drones and such for that but for a ship this size I think even hive would need help..

That was my idea of it at least.. But if you want me to change I can.

A Were-cat sounds like a pretty cool power. That being said, it is a power. You should adjust your character sheet accordingly, as you originally didn't give your character a power. There shouldn't be too much of a problem though. Just tack on a "power" description, a "weakness" description and put some points into the "Power" stat. A full werebeast normally falls at around the 4-5 range depending on the powers that accompany the transformation.

Okie doke~

By the way this isn't exactly a power, he can't control it, nor summon it, and it probably will only be used for combat one time or so. but i'll put the stat in asap.
