Topic: Freedom's Price Q&A
Subject: Plot points

As a reminder to some and something new to others - everyone starts the game with 6 plot points. These points can be used by you to:

Add an Extra die - if you want to succeed in a roll you can add an extra die by using the points. Each point represents a step so 1 point is a d2, 2 are a d4, 3 are a d6 etc.

Reduce Damage - If you have been hit you can roll a die to reduce the damage taken. The points for the die roll are the same as above.

Effect a roll already made - if you missed by a small amount you can add to your roll with points, except that a point is equal to +1 only.

You gain plot points by playing your complications, successful goal accomplishments and making the story move along. Go examples would be Mel coming up to Kane to assist in the deal making, Grace twitchily looking for people watching. Angela forgetting something crucial to the game at the right(wrong) time or Phil going for the girl.

the most PP you can have at any time is 12. If you want to use them, just make a note in your post For Example - "Grace will attempt to make a signal jammer out of the spare parts (3 PP add please)"

Where do you pack a ten foot pole anyway?

"Is that a ten foot pole or are you happy to be adventuring?"

Reagan - I love Ron. It was a Bloom County reference to the fact that people used to blame everything on Reagan while he was in power. My humour when I'm tired is Dennis Miller style obscure. I apologize for any slight to the Gipper.

MMV - The Radio receiver on a multiband is to listen only. Now you could modify yours on the fly, but you couldn't be sure that Kane's would reciever or if he even has his turned on. I am sure you can get a high end "cellphone in a watch" in the core, but not right now.

Suicidolt - I will assume jacket then but don't feel you have to hand me plot hooks - this scene has all the potential to become as grand a comedy as when the crew of the Rocinante drove the hovermule over a brass band in a parade.

Tossing your watch at him might not be efective. Try a wrench instead.

Subject: taste

I think everyone has a different sense of humour, some appeal to one group but not to another. You'll never please everyone so you do what you do and see what happens.

I hated the Movie "Dumb and Dumber" but others loved it. I found "Rosencrantz and Guidenstern are Dead" to be hilarious but others did not. It is all a matter of taste.

Subject: Getting in deep

OOC: This is a difficult scene as there is much happening at once. I can play it one of two ways – either assume a lot of your responses to move ahead or take it slow and let you react. I prefer the latter so that is what I am going with unless you tell me otherwise. Please – be specific in your movements for the next few post, because it really does matter where you are for other NPC’s you may have not met or seen.

Hera, Gambler’s Gully, Inside the Ace in a Hole, 9:15 pm

“This here’s the new Mrs Crane, what say we get a separate table as the other‘s don‘t need to know all the details right now until I‘ve made sure everything is accounted for.”

The Man looked at Melanie and back to Kane. A flicker of doubt was in his eyes; clearly something they had said wasn’t registering well with him. “Yeah. Okay. Sure. Lets move to the back, I think we can get a booth there.” He says handing an old battered hand held disk scanner to Kane. (like a portable DVD player that has been through a war and back)

You move to the back of the bar. A group is leaving as you do so you casually take the booth that puts your back to a wall so no prying eyes can see the screen. Once there, you open up the scanner and it begins to access the disk automatically. Images appear: blueprints, drawings and schematics of high security prisons, military bases and headquarters. They are old – the originals of buildings no longer used after the war, most taken over by corporations and business by now. This is platinum in hand – except there is data missing; all overrides codes that are hardwired into the systems that give anyone access to the buildings. The gentleman scrolls through the list and opens up one particular prison – Perdition. “There you go,” he says quietly, “The codes and accesses are all there, and I’ll give you the master key to get to them, as soon as you give me the FY disk like we agreed.”

He looks at you expectantly.

At the table, Grace, Angela and Phil watch as the three move to the back booth. They are too far in for Angela to monitor the conversation and the three of you are left to your devices. Angela and Phil don’t seem to mind staying put but bowing to an order doesn’t sit well with Grace.

OOC: Angela and Phil? Stay put? Move? Arm weapons? Dance?

Grace had a problem with trust. It wasn’t that she felt someone was out to get her - it was just that if someone was, best to be cautious. She scanned the room looking to see if anyone might be acting all watchy of them, or her friends in the booth. One guy caught her eye. He was tall, with real long and purdy hair draped behind and under his wide brimmed hat. When Kane and Melanie moved, so did he to the bar’s edge – and he was watching them without looking like he was watching. He had a habit of fidgeting with his ear too. Grace was sure of it – they were being watched.

The Vid Screen above the bar caught Grace’s attention. A newsreel was playing and she caught the tail end ‘ “James Watson, head of security for the Far Yukon Mining Company died today while being questioned by authorities over allege terrorist involvement. An official for the government told reporters that they didn’t know that Mr. Watson had a bad heart and apparently died during routine questioning.”

Phil was looking around when something caught his eye – into the bar walked an exceptionally beautiful woman with long blonde hair, dressed in business suit and carrying an attaché case (Scarlett Johansson). She looked around the room looking very much like she didn’t belong here, but she was search for something, or someone. She sure is pretty though.

Subject: Okay

I think for an Intimidating Assault Rifle that suits you purpose - I'd go with a "futurized" M4 carbine. Got your banana clip, scope, single or auto. The type of weapon you want when you have to, positively, kill everyone in the room.

The H&K g36 or Steyr AUG would do the trick as well but they don't look like BFG's. I am open to suggestions.

That's a nice gun.

Anyway, I am getting more of the assault rifle feel from you than the basic rifle. true?

Subject: Phil and Chicken skinned

having a d6 in guns means that you can pick up any gun and use it well. Especially if you have a hig hagility - which you do. Colt, Uzi, Wesson, Mattel - you can handle them all.

I will look at the BFG when I get home. I can not access gun sites from work.

Very obscure but a good choice. Maybe in a metal fancy container that has become very battered over time.

Rifle - Let's step away form the rules for a second. What type of gun do you see Phil carry? Is there a particular Modern rifle?

Subject: speech bubbles

I really think it came down to Rich's speech bubble on the tabletp frame at the bottom. Reading left to right, it makes no sense until you realize Rich spoke first and it makes clicks. But that is reading top to bottom more than left to right.

I forgot to consider those years that Olan spent with the special forces in China causing him to read from top to bottom occasionally.
