I also get a +1 bonus for my background. It may help. I'll look over the book tonight to figure out the modifiers. I have an idea of what I want though.

Alright, so you'll be rolling against a base of 71, which is not too shabby.

Hi. Say I've been interested in playing the Rogue Trader game since I heard the pod cast. I could make up a Nav.

I've been exchanging some PMs with Ryo here and he's interested in giving the game a shot. He asked just recently, after I'd sured up six players so I didn't have space for him. But, since Jason can't make the date I'm giving him a chance to "apply".

OOC Tad, you'll have to help me out here, since the difficulty of acquiring things depends on the size of the colony you are trying to acquire from. I also need to know if I can make Charm, Barter, or Commerce tests to help acquire items.

Trask has one obvious component to acquire: a squad of murder servitors

Rolling 1d100:
(22): Total = 22


If time and resources allow (in order):

Sub-skin armor (very rare)

Rolling 1d100:
(81): Total = 81


Preysense goggles:

Rolling 1d100:
(97): Total = 97


Cranial armor (scarce)

Rolling 1d100:
(21): Total = 21


I don't actually know how the acquisitions work, so this could be insane to try and find this in one trip.

The crew as a whole needs to acquire materials to fortify the colony and any additional equipment for it to operate as a temporary base of operations.  I'll throw down three buys for that as well just in case.

Rolling 1d100:
(11): Total = 11


Rolling 1d100:
(55): Total = 55


Rolling 1d100:
(12): Total = 12

I guess I won't be getting any implants.  Stupid acquisitions.

Well you can always try again later. I'll review the acquisitions rules and get back to you on everything.

What does everybody else want to do? Remember you are senior staff aboard the ship, masters of your own respective divisions. Gearus, Illian, Nathan, and Dom will be out shopping as well.

Oh, I may get the cranial armor though. YES!

I would like Lorrayne or Jak to acquire planetary defense systems as well. For example, satellite defenses, fighter squadrons, orbital cannons, tanks, whatever they feel is prudent as a countermeasure.

Also remember that for things which aren't nearly unique you can apply the "just one" reduction, which is pretty beefy. And there's also quality to consider.

Ok, so here's my decision.  I'll go with Good quality on everything.  For the materials, I think it is a fairly large amount (major or significant?).  The armor and googles are single items.  And I want to make one more "prestige" acquisition of a Best quality, shifting fabric cloak (Very Rare) - that should be a -20 total

Rolling 1d100:
(58): Total = 58

against 51

Oh, so very close. Well you'll have another chance right before the next session when more in game time has passed.

Various suppliers are loading the carefully acquired raw materials for colonial expansion into the vessel and your senior staff is buzzing with excitement as they run up the expense accounts.

Were my rolls so small because I put the dice command inside code/code?

The group's profit factor is 71, so you made some great rolls there.  You'll be pretty decked out.

The dice command is ":dice XdY:"

You don't have to put it into the code command.

Thanks.

He's not that useful in a fight, but he can chart a path through the warp with a little skill.
