From May 20 through June 3rd, there is to be no discussion of US politics. All existing threads on the subject will be closed. People can start new ones once the hiatus is over. See the thread in Trouble Tickets for more info.
In this spirit of scientific collaboration - make a joint statement and it becomes a fact and gets two invokes.
I am closing this issue and opening the next "in media res" during your heist. wormmondaMuskrat
it is time to start the Heist
I am going to drop you into the middle of it. You have several objectives:
Free Willi Quecksalber and Jacques D'Larousse from the Marchioness grasp
Recover the Cloud Box
How the heist will work:
We will not do any kind of planning of setup other than the brainstorm we just finished.
You each get a Flashback
Whenever you encounter opposition during the Heist you can either deal with directly (overcome etc) OR spend your Flashback
If you spend your Flashback you narrate a scene that occurs before the Heist in which you set up the perfect preparation for overcoming the obstacle you just encountered: had an undetectable glass sword delivered to the target area, disguised yourselves as a massive pastry, fashioned a grappling monkey-clank etc.
To make that work you Create Advantage against Mediocre 1 opposition. If your roll fails you can succeed at a cost.
The heist will have three sections: Entering the Box, Lifting the Goods and Extraction. For free I will give you the assistance, in the last phase, of Akkern and the Scout Airship. The next IC post will drop you directly into Entering the Box
