Ok, so. The spider has some nifty traits that let it run faster, jump higher, maan, Imma not gonna let you poison m-

Ugh. Wait.

So. Traits. This is how. Your understand how it works fairly well, so don't worry, just trust me that everything works the way it should.

What are odds of hitting this thing now? Since we have a point-blank situation, it's +30 to BS for you.

Also, for HexaDoken...Consolation Prize

Second time someone's earning XP off me.... I need to find myself a pimp ;)

Is that autogun we saw earlier already submerged?

Aww, thanks :)

Meanwhile:

"Halt! Who's there? Lay yer weapons down and come out with yer hands up!", announces the loud, low voice of some male. There's a visible cone of light, now flashing right at the motormouth's eyes.

Since Lazerus approached the opening from the flank, what are the odds of him having been seen by the shooter?

I asked Silhar whether MkLear should assume Lazerus was spotted on IRC, though now that I think about it, I'm not absolutely sure I got a clear answer. We were likely making quite a bit of noise moving through the water, though: "The rushing water grows even harder to move on, each step coming with more and more effort".

Good, that should actually make us harder to hear. Stepping in small puddles makes a much more distinct sound than wading does, especially when there's some kind of waterfall going on in the background.

I made damn sure not to walk straight at the entrance for precisely this purpose - that's not to say that I couldn't have been seen, but guessing at that would then depend on the point at which the beam of light originates. I'd rather await Silhar's call on that one.

...glancing at Lazerus to see if he'll cooperate.

Thanks for giving away my position though :O

What are you gonna do, shoot me in the back? =P

Edit: On the other hand, if I did give you away, it could actually be to our advantage. If I was to emerge on my own, they'd inevitably ask if there's someone else and I'd then probably blow my deceive roll.
If they see I've given away a teammate, they will be more willing to trust me that we're the only ones there. They could relax a little seeing that I cooperate as well. We shall see.

Guys, guys, I came up with a neat home rule!

How about you could learn skills and certain traits from each other?
So let's say that your teammate has learned something useful. But you'd like to know that too, because you can find an another use for such a fabulous skill.
You go "hey, this is neat, show me how you do it!", do some narration and ask me for permission. If there's no obstacle, you pay 125% of normal cost in xps (the normal cost being the one paid by the character that you are learning from) and acquire the skill.

Also, I think that the teacher would earn some xps in the process.

How does that sound?

Sounds like a very good idea, let's see how it works out I'd say.

MkLear would proabably sell you his, he prefers autopistols anyway. He won't give you any ammo though.

Also, re the home rule - I thought this is pretty much covered by standard rules, no? If you want a specialization outside the scope of your character's career path, you need a way to describe how your character came to know that thing, including finding a willing teacher and spending some time (and eventually XP) on training.

But the rulebook describes it in a "now you can't say that character development system is crude, sod off" manner. What I do is giving you a clear way how to accomplish it.

Just a heads-up: I'll be on the Karlovy Vary Film Festival from 1st to 4th July, so I won't be able to play in those days. Given how slowly we're progressing, there might not be need for any dramatics, maybe just have MkLear get another two fatigue points and have him sleep until I get back. If we manage to get to civilized world by then, I'll just have him drink himself into coma before I go. =)
