Can we assume that the filter group at least has armed themselves, since there could be radroaches and shit down by the filters? Or should we have said something specific?

I had presumed we were carrying our personal gear at all times, or at least had grabbed it before heading down to the muck.

This.

I'm not too concerned about gear, and i'll presume that you've got with you whichever possessions you want to. Don't worry about listing them.

Fair enough. I wasn't sure if packing a double-barrel shotgun was considered normal in the Vault.  :)

And is there a preferred method of pasting dieroll links from Invisible Castle? Which of the six options are best for this application? Or does anyone care, as long as it's clear?

I prefer the last option - the one with [ url ] tags. Oh, and sorry about Friday's last post. I forgot to log her out on our laptop and accidentally posted as her...

So the group looks like this right now:

The Filters
Elsie
Franklin
Hondo

The Reactor Controls
Alice
Marcus

If you're happy with this, we'll move on to the mission itself.

Did I miss something?  I thought Alice and I were going to reactor control?

Sorta.  There was a bit of confusion.  Alice is going to clean out the pumps, most likely the most difficult Mechanics check.

Also, we hates us some radroaches.

Yeah, sorry about that Bill. Some confusion there. Hopefully we've got it sorted now.

Antilles - yes, that's plausible. You'll just need to decide who will be making the Electronics/Repair check. It will be DC 5 for repairing simple wiring.

Where you will get the Electronics kit? If you can't get one then that's a -4 penalty. It will 1 hour and 100 caps worth of parts because of the Project Investment tag. Where will you get the cash or parts?

There are enough radroaches that we might have a problem.  (Never split the party.)  So we might come get y'all for backup, and Alice can fix it without the kit.  (Never split the party.)

You'll note that I didn't object when you chose the divide-and-conquer approach.  ;)

Oh the gap between what the characters know and what the players know...  Adventuring is such a learning experience, and we may also learn about running away too.
