Teeva, where did you throw/move Gam 4 to? It will make a difference on what I can do with him for his turn.

It's 6 squares in 1 direction. I moved him diagonally upper left as far as he can go.

I was going to post earlier, upon learning of the "mysterious voice", but got distracted. But I wanted to say "great twist!" The person being a Force-user was much more than I expected, but upon reflection, actually makes sense.

I have a question, if it's not too spoilery for you to answer, PMiller. Does the story make allowances for a party that just wants to leave after getting the info about the Imperial connection and Darga? It seems an easy thing to do, and given the mission parameters, actually makes more sense for the party to leave, rather than risk getting caught and potentially getting captured/killed before they can pass on the vital info they learned. I was having a hard time justifying Crit giving the order to explore the basement, rather than leaving.

If the party starts to leave, does this person reach out and contact them telepathically? Or is this a "side mission" that the story acknowledges you can potentially miss?

Yes, the material sort of offers suggests on how to keep the PCs on rails to not leave without going to the dungeon.

There were a few things that I forgot to do over the long haul that would have clued the Force Users in earlier, but this group was itching to get down to the dungeons to see the prisoner, before the Imperial’s visit. That would have been pre-mature, so I had to downplay things to hold back on the reins a bit. ;)

I think most Dawn of Defiance groups have a Force User so this event would have little issue triggering with the mental communication.

Oops, I dropped the ball on this thinking it was not my turn. Sorry about that.

I checked the sheet.
Storm trooper armor would be 6 on the Level/Armor bonus for Reflex Defense. The sheet is showing 7 for calculations.

Thanks for checking.

The 7 comes from the Improved Armor Defense Talent. It lets you add your level plus half the armor's Ref bonus to your Ref Defense. (Level = 4) + (half 6 = 3) = 7.

Sorry guys, i am going to have to on a bit of haitus. Work is slamming me right before I got out on paternity leave, and my wife is expecting any day now. I will try to resume a normal posting schedule once the baby is born and things have leveled out. I may squeeze a post in here or there...but we will see.

I think we can wait for Teeva on this one.

Teeva, remember that you can only take 1 Action during Surprise Round (except for taking a Free Action).

Instead of moving you to K7, I stopped you at J7 to reflect Free Action 5ft step.

So to be clear, it was just the move action of Teeva's actions that was invalidated?
