OOC Questions

I really should learn to post questions here and not in my character posts.

(OOC: Has power been restored? Just wondering if we notice what it is that the unknown assailant is noticing? If so I would like to know and post to it if possible. Also sorry for the lameness of my post. My time is currently short and I am not getting a lot of time to write.)

Questions in the Q&A? What a concept?

First off, you don't have to put OOC in the Q&A. .

I sent out a bunch of PM before I disappeared and I think they were lost as more than one person is in the dark literally and figuratively. So what i thought was known to all was not.

The electrical is completed down on the ship and that means EMP. However, when Grace was rewiring the systems for Destiny back when you first found her, she took the time to shield the backup system from such an attack. She spend days on end in the access tubes wrapping the wiring with the protective shielding. So the back up will come on as soon as the system can reboot (5 minutes). That will give you life support, inner ship communications and emergency lights.

Grace also hid one battery completely shielded to connect to if you need to get one thing working (airlock, engine, transmitter, etc) for a short time.

So you will be in the dark for five minutes and the backup will come online. Emergency lights will activate. That is what the assilant has noticed and you would realize that if you are under attack (assumed) then anyone wit ha scanner will know you are not dead.

Tess/Celeste - Your console and flight controls are completely dead. First check of back up will come up as dead as well. But Tess knows in her heart of hearts that there is no way Grace wouldn't have built a contingency plan for something like this. So you would have that faith to draw upon for the five long minutes until the back up will sudden kick back to life (You either have the best mechanic alive or the twitchiest)

Jon/Ody - There was an EMP in that explosion. You know it. Why else would all the electrical including the back up die. But Jon knows in his gut that there is no way Grace wouldn't have built a contingency plan for something like this. So you would have that faith to draw upon for the five long minutes until the back up will sudden kick back to life. Jon would also know that Ken would head for the main airlock and defend.

Ken/RPN - You played him as exactly as I would suggested. Being newest to the ship you might not have the faith in Grace that others would have, and work on a "man alone" basis. In fact, the power being restored so quickly might surprise him.

Jason/Phelan -You were just making a connection to a friend of yours who might know something of the Tong interests when you find yourself on the ground. Jason would know the following. Grace will get the system working. She always has in the past and no matter what the crisis, Grace comes through. Ken will be arming himself and heading for the airlock. Stephanie will be running through the ship soon to check on everyone and see if they are wounded. She will not heed her own safety.

Hope this helps.

one more thing

Thinking that you are about to be attacked by reavers right now would be a normal reaction.

oh

Reavers. Right.

May change my inner dialogue, and little bit of regular dialogue with that information. And I did put my faith in Gracie! If only she hadn't hidden those handlights so damn well!

I'm half expecting her to show up with a drop light and a portable generator.

You go girl........

I didn't think about it too deeply, but I did figure Grace would wave her magic wand and we'd out of the dark at least.

I was checking the character sheets for items but did not remember Celeste's list. I'll pop there an copy it to my library so I don't miss stuff again. Those snap light would have been something I figure Tess and Jon would look for to help get their crew out of the dark.

I would think it reasonable to have one in each crew quarters, several in engineering, several on the bridge and a couple in the sick bay. Maybe one or two in the cargo bay but that is not a high priority area. Keeping systems going and life support going would be priority areas.

So are we saying the five minutes are past and emergancy systems are active or are we still going on faith and spreding out to guard the ship?

Now at this time I would not have thought of Reavers, it does not seem to be far enough out in the black. Marauders with high tech weapons just fit better to Jon thoughts of folks that now want their cargo. Robbers not Reavers.

snap lights

We can't have that many spread around. I only put up four packages. Sure, they have several lights to each package, but there are only four packages. You'd just have to pull out your lighter to get to the area where they are. (Bridge, Medical Bay, Galley, and Engine Room) ^_^

Let there be light................

Yeah, but.........
Snaplight x4 pkgs (20 in pkg)that's 80 lights.

I'd bet that Grace took a whole pack for Engineering.(20)
Half a pack on (10) on the bridge. Ten in sick bay.

now that would leave two packs, so two to each cabin (10).

I'd say 10 in the shuttle.

That would still leave 30 to be throughout the boat.

Am I already There?

I tried to setup an Ident and seems my name is already used.
I guess I'm so good that I'm already there? Durp!

Back to the story......

So are we still in the five minute blackout? Can we edit to use the snaplights? Does anyone else think we need to edit for the snaplights?

Anyone heard from MMV or Phelan?
