Trek Interlude
1d4: [3] = 3 - Diamonds
  • How the group found something that helped them along the way, such as an oasis, minor treasure, ammo, food, friendly locals, etc.
As they travelled away from the Coalition scientists and incoming Coalition soldiers, Tiny Tim was glad he was able to help deal with the Giant Worm help their new travelling companion, Woolsy, away before the rift imploded.

The next few days were uneventful for the most part, as they head westward towards Colorado. As he is scouting ahead, running as he prefers, Tiny Tim stops in his tracks as he sees a dead humanoid body ahead. After a quick whispered message over his radio, the little Dragon comes up to what looks like a cougar eating the lightly armoured human corpse. As he makes his way over there, he accidentally steps on a dry stick, and the noise attracts the attention of the large cat. With a loud hiss, the cougar runs off and leaves its prize to the obviously much more dangerous predator.

Looking over the obvious corpse... having most of its guts clawed out and half eaten would do that to you... Tiny Tim sees a few GRENADES on the nearby belt. The cougar must have surprised the now dead human before it could defend itself with the grenades, and the nearby rifle and vibro-knife looked to be in very poor condition. Not knowing how to tell the condition... or even the type of the grenades he found, Tiny Tim picked the belt of grenades and brought them back to Lace/Mars with the story of what he had found.

Interlude: 1d4: [4] = 4 - Clubs
Trek: A hardship the party overcame on their trip: the tragic death of a favored Extra, spoiled or lost supplies, a mechanical breakdown, abysmal weather, and so on.

CS Occupied Minnesota/East of the Mississippi
Round 0

Erebus Caine ranged ahead of the Mammoth as they passed over the open terrain of the upper plains of the Dakotas. He eyed the horizon warily, where clouds dark as pitch were starting to pile up on the horizon, broken by lightning. Soon the rain started, a torrential downpour that made it hard for him to see more than five feet ahead. Low ground was starting to turn into a morass of mud and water.

Caine went back to the Mammoth to consult with the others. “I can’t see a thing out there. If we keep going, we’ll just end up in a quagmire. We should find high ground and hunker down!” he said over the roaring wind. “We need to be careful about lightning, too!”

Medi-Gel: 9/10
Wealth: d10
Encumbrance: 36.75/20 lb
Giant Killer: +1d6 damage when attacking creatures Size 3+
Nerves of Steel: Ignore 1 point of Wound modifiers
Aim: Spend entire turn aiming. On next turn, ignore up to 4 points of Range, Cover, Called Shot, Scale, or Speed penalties, or add +2 to the roll.
Assassin: They add +2 to damage rolls when foe is Vulnerable or have The Drop.
Danger Sense: When rolling for Surprise, add +2 to Notice roll to act in the first round. With a raise, start the encounter on Hold. In other situations not covered by the Surprise rules (a sniper shot, pit trap, poisoned drink, etc.), Danger Sense gives a Notice roll at −2 (or +2 if a Notice roll is usually allowed) to detect the hazard and take appropriate action. If this was an attack and the hero makes the Notice roll, the foe doesn’t get The Drop against him.
Double Tap: Double Tap can only be used with weapons that have a Rate of Fire of 1 and can fire two shots without needing to manually reload. It adds +1 to hit and damage at the cost of one extra bullet. This is per action, so a shooter can Double Tap more than once if she performs a Multi-Action. Double Tap cannot be combined with Rapid Fire. If used with a weapon capable of Three Round Burst, it adds +2 to Shooting and damage instead of +1 and expends six bullets.
Level Headed: Draw additional Action Card in combat.
Marksman: If don’t move in a turn and fires no more than a ROF 1 as first action, may add +1 to an Athletics (throwing) or Shooting roll, or ignore up to 2 points of penalties from Called Shots, Cover, Range, Scale, or Speed. This is a lesser version of the Aim maneuver and does not stack with it. Marksman doesn’t apply to additional attacks after the first.
Rapid Fire: Increase ROF +1
Steady Hands: Ignore Unstable Platform penalty. Reduce Running penalty to -1.

Downtime: The character studies or works on an object of some sort. What is it?

William After getting away from the CS finally gets to rest from driving the big vehicle . He sits down and starts to meditate and seeks advice as to what to do and what might help the party.

The image of the meteor appears in his mind. Then he sees coming into view, Icosa with the Data stick, and they are talking about the meteor. The next scene he sees people heating at a smelter that separates the metal into different types. After being seperated various metal he sees them forming part of the metal into items. Finally he sees the group wearing the item.

His mind comes back to the present and he seeks the others and mentions what he has seen about the Meteor.
to Icosa, "Is there anything on the CS Stick that talks about identifying what material the meteor has and what they might be used for? is there a way to smelt the meteor and break it into different metals."

To the others, "Does anyone here knows of a place that can separate the metal? Smelt it into different metals and make it in to items? out here where we are?"

A difficult obstacle
1d4: [1] = 1
Ajax spends the days since their parting with the CS scientists riding large loops around the mammoth. The sucking bog that resulted from the thunderstorm soon gave way to rocky earth as the terrain spiked upwards; the foothills of a new rocky range soon blocked their clear way forwards. The Mountaineer was put through its paces simply trying to keep all its wheels on the ground. Ajax and @Tiny Tim were put through their paces trying to find a path through. The path around would have been days out of their way. Fortunately, Adventure, Inc.'s scouts are fleet of foot and nimble. Still, Ajax chafed at the confines of the spiny ridges. "A pox upon the storms that slowed our speed across the plains. I could have run there for weeks!"
