    Bravo, all I can think of is the nurse in the infirmary. As for that though, I thought I would let Grey respond and me before giving the troopers response / next steps

    The political crisis is coming to an end, at least on a planetary scale. Now the political game between Imperial Center and the CSA capital would start, which I have plans to cover later in posts via NPCs. So, we can let it fade away I guess...if you or I come up with a interesting way to make a Imperial governor important on a galactic politics stage, let me know. Although I have a feeling that the Governor will become more important once Hilick Soal leaves the planet's orbit...for certain reasons. ;)

    Already? Holy molly, I remember back in the old game when we reached a 1,000 and it was a big deal. But 400 already!!!!! We're rolling folks! :cool:

    I'm always interested as to how the rest of the boards view our game? I know Intervention carried a mixed non-player following (sometimes we were viewed as a solid game, others viewed us as isolationists from the rest of the boards). I just wonder how Echoes is perceived? Is the second installment game received more widely or are we still considered "that game" (isolationist)? The rest of the Staff knows how busy I am outside of the boards, so while I don't intentionally try to avoid the rest of the RPF, I tend to have little choice in the matter where my board time is spent, so I know sometimes I may---personally---come off as a isolationist Game Master, although by all means I don't try to. DRL predicts that for me.

    I think for the public opinion it's harder to truly gauge it with our small, but lovely, community. :p

    I will get an update tomorrow night after work! :) I was going to get one in tonight, but I met up with a good brother in Christ for dinner that I haven't seen in over a year. So it was one of those special night things.

    Oh, nice twist, Bravo.

    People appearing out of thin air never gets old.

    I must admit to being excited to be in a scenario with these guys, since the wiki link provided mentioned the Infiltrator's role in the Alliance' Operation Cobolt, and I was recently reading the mission prep and debrief for that mission in West End Games' Rebel Alliance Sourcebook while looking up basic aerial manoeuvres for the Luck's Gamble.

    Its all I can do not to ask for autographs.

    Dice test, to see if I can have it mid-post, instead of always at the end.

    Blah blah blah



    Blah blah blah

    Blah blah blah

    Mmm. Nope.

    EDIT: I will be concentrating on doing the Luck's Gamble tag, next.

    EDIT #2: @greyjedi125, Ayres is not in the apartment. He is on the Luck's Gamble with Mary, taking potshots at AT-ATs.

    @Bravo

    Natalie is deluding herself. That context, the situation and crisis inside the garrison, the stormtrooper did the right thing. I'd have done it too, except I didn't want to.




    4!

    We rolled a 4? During the tests, it was a big number, but when it mattered, we rolled a four?!

    I couldn't take it. I had to walk away and cook myself something.

    Great post, @Sith-I-5! Unfortunately, Sydney can't aim worth s***. Ha ha!

    Suddenly all the news reports about concussion missiles slamming into the spaceport down below fill my head. Uh oh!

    Man, this is going to prove how some things are all about timing. If @Jedi_padawan_leigh had used the available time to get her charges onto the provided bus and over to the shelter, Oshi'd be fine, but now, the spaceport she is standing in, is about to be by a frakkin' concussion missile, and there is not a damn thing I can do about it.

    I guess I now know Ayers' true location. Sorry about that folks, please ignore any mistakes on my last post. Thanks Sith.

    @Sith-I-5 I'm working on a post right now, sorry for my sudden absence, I've been battling sudden health problems that have hit me like a ton of bricks . Faints, panic attacks and light-headedness to name a few. Havent really be able to get access to a computer in the mean time, I'm really sorry.

    EDIT: Posted

    Well, just get yourself better, and use available bannisters and hand supports, @Jedi_padawan_leigh. Panic attacks, et al are no laughing matters.

    @Bravo, hope the spaceport did not feature heavily in the future plot...

    Thanks @Sith-I-5 I'm on the mend so fingers crossed I'm my old self soon

    Woah..that spaceport update! So a merc missile hit the port first? If so, that's gonna need one heck of an incident report form for Lasso to fill.

    Question, did Lefty survive the bus accident?

    Well, the concussive impact from a concussion missile, is, I understand, from the speed which with the warhead hits, so it makes sense that it would overtake the wide-arsed AT-AT on the way down.

    Yep, Lefty survived. His armour might not stop blaster bolts, but it would have helped him here.

    @Vehn, Greyjedi has brought to my attention, something about "modifiers". I have no idea what this entails, but it sounds like I have probably made an error of some sort, and Ayres is not actually a **** aim.

    I'm not sure where this leaves us.

    My two cents is this.

    1) Dice rolls are perfectly fine, as long as they only affect your personal IC character(s) alone and the surrounding environment.

    2) Dice rolls are perfectly fine affecting other IC characters, as long as there is prior consent by the other player(s).

    3) In my personal opinion, I like the occasional dice roll. It added a surprising twist to the ATAT that I didn't see coming at all and I liked it.
