Well, even if you inferno pistol it, I doubt you'll set it on fire due the dense, humid and moist vegetation being what it is.

I could take a shot with my Stalker but it might be prudent to allow the tactical or devestator to take the plant down. I also only have one mag of stalker rounds, don't remember what everyone else has and at work at the moment.

I don't remember reading starts on the plant's hp, toughness and the like. Is that intentional so we can't mathhammer our approach?

Yep! Totally intentional that we don't know their Soak or Health. Makes it more fun that way.

 

But if we were to come across a more mundane enemy (nids, eldar, orks, chaos), you could look them up in the relevant books if you wanted to.

@slipstreams:

 

Thanks for shooting at the plant.  Gallan didn't pack any stalker shells, so he's a little unsure about whether to shoot his bolt pistol or inferno pistol.

Hopefully it dies. Otherwise, well, the soundless shot is neat, so the plant hopefully doesnt know where the hit is coming from buuuuuuuutt, it'll probably start screaming in general D:

I did too originally until cohorts post.

Seems he wants 5 from each, and 5 total wouldn't be enough because there's six players.

Welp, may RNGesus have mercy on my soul, 4 rolls to go which I'll edit in.

 

An Lo' did he spite me, with a roll of 84 vs a concealment of 68 for 2 Degrees of Failure. Hopefully the Move Silent Roll helps...somehow.

I GM a lot and I would never phrase needing each person to roll the test that way.  The fact that Karack mentioned 5 locations also suggests he wants 5 rolls per person.

When the game first started it seems we were using honor system for dice rolls. Now a few have implemented orokos.

 

What's the plan going forward?

I just used Orokos for Simplicities sake and because my Dice weren't immediately on hand :P I'm cool with whatever.

I just used it because I am a lemming...

 

Honor rolls work fine for me, I like rolling my real d20 dice in my work office on the hush.  ph34r.png

 

Also, I am confused about Degrees of Success or Failure.  An initial roll indicates one degree of success or failure, and each ten (10) points above or below the characteristic score equals an additional degree, right?

 

So, example:

 

Gallan has a modified Agility characteristic of 77.

 

He rolls a 72.  This is one (1) degree of success, because he/I made a non-failing roll.  (right?)

 

He then rolls a 60.  This is two (2) degrees of success, because he/I made a non-failing roll, and 60+10 is still below Gallan's modified Agility characteristic.

If you succeed by less than 10 you are successful with no degrees of success. Otherwise you are correct.

He mentioned leaving another PbP Game run by Black Cohort that I play in recently but he hasn't made mention here. We could make the assumption that he's probably dropped this one too.

Sorry for the delay, a new GM post is up; I hope people are available to continue.

 

That said, do we as a group know what is going on for those that are apparently MIA OOC?

IF they dont come back soon, either they vanish or, if someone is willing, takes control of them until the end of the mission at which point they can be removed from the campaign in a more graceful manner.

 

As for whether we stay on the surface or explore the caves, since we're looking for an Relic Cache of tech, my gut is telling me to go explore underground.

Unfortunately I agree with Slip regarding our missing companions. As much as I hate to see their disappearance, I want to keep playing.

I will abstain from voting as to what course to take. IC post will be up tonight.
