A minor note, Dom, you may want to split the 2 investigations since they are 2 teams.  Maybe a 2A and 2B?

That way we won't be tripping over each teams posts and can still look at the other to keep track of what's happening. 

And if we need to send a message, we can pop into the other thread.

Just a suggestion from a neat freak.

Great idea! I just split the topic in two. Thanks!

Make sure to type out the modifiers for the perception check, I want to know what modifiers you added to add more fluff to the descriptions.

EDIT: Mckma, I need the updated character sheet before you start making rolls. Check your email and make the necessary corrections.

Tch, so close.  Anything I can do for a cheap +5 to the check? 8D

I'll check your character sheet if there's anything that might give you a bonus. If not, you can reroll by burning a Moxie point or try another approach.

EDIT: I will allow using Academics: Psychology as a complementary skill, which would add a +30 bonus to the check. I could see it being used as your character knowing various 'tells' that people show when they are lying and trying to suppress them. Only use the base skill of 60, not the 70 from the Criminal Psychology specialization.

WOW!!!

I am tactless and clueless.

BTW - I hate dice rollers.  A necessary evil, but the ones I use for Shadowrun hate me too.

20 from enhanced vision, 10 from a sleight, actually you should remove that last 10. I thought I bought specs and I didn't. Either way it still succeeded.

Wonderful, thanks. =D Here's hopin'!

Edit: I should probably roll. *downs*

Academics: Psychology (60) Rolling 1d100:
(10): Total = 10

Sorry I wasn't able to get on that character sheet earlier, I've made about half the changes I want, so it should be finished tonight...

Is it unreasonable to assume that there is some form of public transportation?

You know it's been a while since I played a character who has a drastically different personality then my own. It took all my willpower to make him rush into that situation and stay true to his personality rather then do what I would usually do and hang back.

Hopefully that won't get us killed lol.

No problem, you can roll skills now.

In Noctis-Qianjiao, there's taxi cars, rentable bicycles and the Noctis Tram (Also called the Night Train). There's more info on page 117 and 119 of Sunward.

In regards to opening a door, Hardware: Electronics seems like the skill of choice in Eclipse Phase. However, I will allow you to use Infiltration at a -10 penalty or an Infosec roll with no penalty. Some complementary skills that could give you a +30 to the check if made could be Profession: Ego Hunter since you might have had experience opening locked doors with that, or Research to look up the schematics of the lock to get a better idea of how to open it. You can also use the Covert Operations Tool, but its likely that it will trigger an alarm on the building's network.

Other ways to open the door could be to talk to the landlord and make him open the door, or to use Networking to find someone who could open the door.

Could I retry that same role with a +20 from Academic: Sociology? I would think someone with some knowledge of the field would be a good judge of political climate.
