In following with standard comic book decorum, we'll have some downtime after the dramatic events of Issue #3. The city will be struggling to get back to normal, and there are a few villains who may remain loose in the city who might show up at some point during the night.

That said, this is a chance to follow-up on your character's own interests, quests and stories; it'll basically be the same as the free-form role-playing sessions we had during Dark City. Patrolling is certainly an option, but I leave that choice to you.

If you want to give me a heads-up about your plans, post to this thread or e-mail me offlist, otherwise we'll just wing it on Friday. :)

The first thing I need to do is repair work.

According to the repair check under the craft skill, it will take Paladin 10 hours to repair one minion. I have to repair 4. :) So I'm not doing all of them right now.

The check is DC 25. However, I can do the repairs in half the time by taking a -5 penalty to the DC. So I'm going to repair the 2 Sherlock minions first. DC 30, 10 hours total.

My Craft: Electronic skill is 20 and my Skill Mastery feat allows me to take 10 on the check, so I automatically succeed in repairing my minions.

Once the two Sherlocks are repaired, I'm going to send them out on search/patrol mode. They'll search the city in a grid pattern, looking for the escapees and other general crime being committed. Everything will be reported back to me and I'll decide whether to throw the report to the police (general low level crime stuff) or intervene myself (meta crime stuff).

The Sherlocks can Fly (Speed 20Mph)
Hide in Plain Sight Feat
Eidactic Memory Feat
Stealth skill modifier of +23 (skill + size Fine modifier - Dex penalty)
Search +15
Notice +15
Investigate +15
Knowledge Local +11
Disable Device +15

They also have good investigative Powers:
Communication
Comprehend Machine
Microscopic Vision (down to the DNA/Complex Molecule level)
Darkvision
Radio Sense
Time Sense
Infravision
Tracking
Datalink
Comprehend Languages (spoken and written)

And a few offensive Powers:
Dazzle (Sound/Electric) Rank 4
Stun (Sound) Rank 4
Blast (Sound) Rank 4

After the Sherlocks are repaired, I'm going to start working on Gemini and the Professor (in that order). Same DC, same time frame. So it will take an additional 10 hours. Then I'll need to sleep. :)

After Gemini is ready, I'll send him out on high flying patrol over the city to back up the Sherlocks. Gemini doesn't have a whole lot of skills or powers to help the Sherlocks, but he can remain in contact with them and bring some combat prowess to bear if the Sherlocks get into trouble.

Dragoon will be following up on the story line I'll be calling "It's not easy being blue." Basically he needs to take care of his little problem, so thats what he'll be looking to do. For our readers I'll leave the details out. Ken, remember I have more background in my google doc. Email me if you need more detail.

Also, I was reading a few things that might help my character concept. I have 2 PP's saved so I'll be looking to use them.

Gray (under the Gray pseudonym) writes the local paper with a nastygram about Strafe...

Damon, more along the lines of the "concerned citizen" type letter than a general bashing...

Ok, write it up and post it! Freedom City wants specifics.

I need more detail about what you have in mind for the blue thing, since I don't think you touched on that in the origin story. E-mail me or IM me when you get a chance and we'll talk.

George -- anything specific you want Flynn to do during the downtime? Does Flynn still do acting and stunt work on the side? 'Cause that has some interesting possibilities.

Add it to the Infinity Storm #3 blog post:

http://infinitystorm.blogspot.com/2007/ ... ntime.html

and I'll incorporate it into the adventure write-up.

Just wanted to say:

AWESOME GAME!!! I look forward to our further adventures.

Ken: Where can we do some out of game stuff? Specifically Dragoon would like to talk to Paladin.

We should be able to handle it anytime, since we're not in the middle of a story right now. And you have the encrypted communicator, so post, IM, email, whatever. :)

I was just worried more about logging it. Since he's doing the write-ups on the blog, I didn't know if he wanted the discussions here or there.
