The assumption is...

In the character awareness descriptions I indicated that Vegas was a capable leader due to his Leadership Talent. So, I'm assuming that CAPTIN is referring to M'haru Ghlahn acknowledging the skill.

For Your Information

Just letting everyone know that I have a rule with games that I run. I will absolutely update the game at least once per week. If you have not posted your character's actions, thoughts, and desires I will make them up in order to keep the game alive. I've found it to be a necessity in these forum-based games.

Here's the kicker, Gatos. I may, or may not, be kind to your character and leave the decisions that I make for you up to dice rolls. How friendly are you with the Universe? Disengage from the game for a bit and find out! Go ahead. I dare ya.

Vegas

I will have a Post up later tonight or Friday morning.

Sent a PM to ask about available cash for Vegas and buying a second Taser.

However, I probably need to know how much cash on hand is needed to ride buses or monorails or taxis etc; otherwise, my character will be improvising rides with his shoe leather and guns and a song or two

Public Transit in Night City

The question was rightly posed as to the cost of public transport in Night City. Hoofing it across a city that spans the whole of the California Coast isn't reasonable, so it stands to reason that without a vehicle of your own (which would be an interesting dilemma all by itself), you're going to make use of the fallible and always exciting NCPTD (or private sector vendors).

NCPTD Bus Ticket = 1 NCD/stop (prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.) Undercity and Midcity routes only.

NCART Ticket (The Rail) = Upper City .75 NCD/station (prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.) | Midcity .50 NCD/station (prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.) | Undercity .25 NCD/station (prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.)

Ground Taxi = 3 NCD/mile + Gratuity (10 NCD/mile through Combat Zones, or if any violence occurs). Undercity and Midcity access only.

Red Cab Taxi Service, Day = 3.5 NCD/mile + Gratuity, Midcity and Uppercity only. (15 NCD/mile if any violence occurs - no combat zones and prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.)

Troubleshooter Cab Service (self-driving ground car) = 3.5 NCD/mile, prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash. Please note that these cars are outfitted with both internal and external security systems. Mess with the car, you could end up dead. As a matter-of-fact, there's a constant pool running at the Troubleshooter facilities as to the number of deaths per day caused by some jacked fool messing with a cab.)

Troubleshooter Cab Service (self-driving AV) = 15 NCD/mile, prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.).

Troubleshooter Cab Service (Gyro or Speedboat) = 10EB/mile, prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.).

Troubleshooter Extraction Fees:
- Extraction from a Patrol/Controlled Area = +20%
- Extraction from a Firefight = +15%
- Extraction from Gang Violence = +10%
- Extraction from an Illegal Area = +25%

AV Taxi Service (there are a number of them) = 15 NCD/mile, + Gratuity. 25 NCD/mile if there's violence. Prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Aerocab = 25 NCD flat fee + 10 NCD/mile and Gratuity. +25% if there's violence. Prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Corporate Zone Rental Car (groundcar) = 50 NCD/day + 2 NCD/mile. Insurance is heavily pushed and runs an additional 30 NCD/day, prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash. Corporations are miserly and will come after anyone who damages their property.

Honda-Avis Vehicle Rental Service = 100 NCD/day. Paid in advance. Prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Renta-Robo Rental = 220 NCD/day + .60 NCD/mile, prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Executive Transport Service (+driver) = 150-850 NCD/hour.

Maglev Standard Ticket = 100 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.
Maglev 1st Class Ticket = 250 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Dirigible Standard Ticket = 300 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.
Dirigible 1st Class Ticket = 1,000 - 3,000 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Transatlantic Stratliner (3 hour tour ) = 2,000 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Transatlantic Jet (7 hour flight) = 300 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

Transatlantic Dirigible (36 hours) = 150 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

LEO Coach Ticket = 1,500 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.
LEO 1st Class Ticket = 3,000 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

GEO Coach Ticket = 2,500 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.
GEO 1st Class Ticket = 3,000 NCD prepaid, or paid through a SINcard or Credit Transfer Device. No cash.

You can get further out in Space than LEO and GEO, but we won't worry about that right now.

Things you would know about Upper City...

1. Security - Most of Upper City is Corp-owned, patrolled, and managed. What isn't, is Desnai. That means that there are regular security checkpoints, corporate security patrols, and near Desnai enclaves there are even Mecha. Corporate Security rarely asks questions. In the best of cases, they'll use non-lethal means to address situations, but that requires a lot of paperwork. Desnai are even less forgiving of anyone trying to enter their enclave without dogtags.

2. Unlicensed Weaponry - Any weapon that is not something that could be considered a concealed carry in our modern age would not be capable of being licensed without a corporate charter. CorpZones and Enclaves only allow those with permits to carry, so think of it this way: If you aren't affiliated with a corporation, you aren't getting a permit. That's not to say that Edgerunners haven't figured out how to create false permits. Fixers like Starlight can get them for a price. Depending on the fixer, they might pass inspection. Alternatively, you can always try to avoid checkpoints and patrols...

3. Access - Only the more rough-n'-tumble outfits service all three levels and every zone in Night City. Not even public transit will take you all the way from Uppercity to Undercity on one route, or in one vehicle. And public transit is rarely on time. Gangs like to screw with public transit vehicles, tracks, and routes. Why? Because it's fun. Need there be another reason?

4. Monitoring - Uppercity is heavy with cameras and bio-monitoring devices used to keep executives "safe." So, if you're in Uppercity on a main street, in a regularly used alleyway, tunnel, or lift... chances are you're being watched.

Any other questions?

Night City Dollars ?????

So are the Night City Dollars we are carrying = Cash ???

Do we have the Credit Cards ???

Not so sure how economical it is for all of us to be showing up at the School in the Upper City where some of us would be stopped (especially Casino) with the Fire Power that we are carrying ???

Security Issues for all of us going to the school in Upper City, so does anyone else have any suggestions or comments to add here ???

Answers...

Unless it states that you have a credit transfer device, Sincard, or Credchips on your character sheet, you've got cash. Each of those other options costs monthly fees, and Edgerunners are already living tight, so only those with high reps who run some serious gigs can even afford the fees. Of course, there's black market versions...

Do we have the Credit Cards ??? Credit cards are referred to as Credchips, and unless it states as much on your sheet, the answer is no.

Credchips

I've got one. made sure to take the $20 monthly fee for a month off of my starting dough as well. SO if the team is carrying cash, guess I could front for bus or tram tickets and get reimbursed. And if we are talking about remaining funds to get us through the game, my toon has got about 250eb remaining but has his own water purifier and kibble to keep him running.

Ah... Teamwork.

Overcoming challenges is the name of the game!

For those of you who haven't posted in response to last week's character engagement; the time has come to endure "Die Controlled Characters!" Dun, dun, dun...

What will the results be?

Results are in. I didn't move things forward too far. Way I see it, you folks need to determine a plan of action now that you've got a chain of command established.

Keep in mind that if you're planning on heading up to Uppercity, you'll either need to stow your illegal weapons, or find ways to bypass security checkpoints. While it is difficult to bypass security, it isn't impossible. The news stories every day are a testament to that fact.

Also, keep in mind that it is Friday night, coming up on very early Saturday morning.

Great character development thus far, gang! You'll see that I brought together all of the interactions in the most logical manner I could. I had to change some dialogue a bit, but I tried to stay true to your characters.

Hammer, I inserted a couple of lines for Casino just to move things forward. If you think he'd say things differently, or wouldn't respond that way, feel free to let me know.

I look forward to this week's continuation!

Explaining my new post

Ok main reason Casino is bringing this up is to him it seams Mathis is more worried about money then being part of the team. If he really wants us to pay him that little bit of cash up front, considering what we can make if we are successful, and the consequences if we are not. Well that makes Casino nervous that there is the possibility, for the right price he may turn on us.


Second reason is of course that he is now broke and he does not like owing money to anyone. Case in point his hocked Agent.

Plus Casino is a paranoid SOB lol

Great Post Tann

I will let my Private Conversation Post stand for now until I hear from Brom.

Vegas could bring up the argument that if Casino launches a Grenade that saves another character's @$$ then that character should shell over the money to pay for the Grenade

We will see how this all plays out

I am waiting for Brom to answer with any info before Vegas proceeds with any Comments or Suggestions or Friendly Orders or Whatever
