I will have to rewrite it again later boo!

I'll hold-off until you've gotten a chance to write this out.

Hey Bifford,

I was just working through my post when I realized that after a failed roll I should be holding off for you to interject on what happens, so I apologize for running away with it.

I was thinking of having Kale be injured or unconscious after two fails playing with electricity but looking over the character sheet again I realized that you might be wanting to jump in on failed rolls.

Let me know what you'd prefer I did with the first failure, and depending on that what your thoughts are on the second.

Thanks!

Actually you did exactly the right thing. You took the failure and escalated the trouble in the scene as a whole. I *am* going to post an extra narration - but it's for things Kale can not see, so works perfectly.

Now, for the second fail..... you have two options -

1. I escalate things MORE - this time probably on a personal level, or

2. Secret of Reflexes
Once per session, you can re-roll a failure when doing anything involving grace, dexterity, or quick reflexes.

Although in this case the chances of success are still quite slim...so you may want to cut your loses and tell me to narrate the result

Whoops.. well maybe Naomi can distract those guards with this, maybe they'll even laugh so hard they'll fall down At least it's an easy assumption she's their focus of attention right now

My apologies for being so slow! It's been a busy weekend. Seems that you might've been better off WITHOUT Cyrus's help, unfortunately. On the good note, he's executing plans, and putting himself in harms way to protect the team. Just apparently not very good at it!

I've been trying to think through what Kale's going to be up to.

She's tough but I think she's going to take this hard physically. I'm going to wait and see if the party manages to rescue her from these other guards before she regains consciousness.

How will she take it emotionally? Ok, she's been in trouble before, she's been following Vance around for a while and as long as her mistake doesn't get Vance harmed then she'll be okay. But we'll see!

Let me add a bit to my last post, reflecting her post-spellcasting exhaustion to give others something to play with.

I'm back! Sorry!
Sorry for the quietness from me over the weekend - I've gotten into a routine of checking this all at work so it completely escaped me over the weekend!

I've specifically not told the others I'm heading to Kale, I figure if we all try to save her, we'll have more success.

as an aside, how can i do a post without a subject?

We all have a weekend life/regime that differs to the rest of the week, so no worries

Re subject - just leave that box alone and it wont post anything! Or do you mean completely blank? Let's try putting a space in there.....

.....I had to put half a dozen " " spaces in as otherwise the subject "is too short", but that worked!

I'm pretty proud of working that in!

I'm heading out of town for my brother-in-laws wedding. I'll be able to post from my phone when necessary, but I wouldn't expect novels from me.

It's gone very quiet! Everyone okay? If you need help just say.

(Obviously I know why Dave is quiet)

Kale's still unconscious (and hoping for a rescue) but if people are stuck I can certainly jump in and try my hardest not to make it worse. (again)

I'm ready for action.

We had some bad luck there with some crappy rolls. I'd like some more explanation of what to do for adding dice to others' rolls. In addition, playing meek, weak Alice seemed to come to a natural end obviously since I blew my cover when I blew away the door. I still like the idea of playing her as self-centered, as I think her noble entitlement lends itself to this. Expect more noble snobbery and manipulation. Of course, I do want to get off this ship as well.

Alright, I'm back, gang...

Appears that things have gotten a little hairy... out of the frying pan, into the fire, so to say.
