Something I just thought of: How was Jane carrying the armor when she arrived? It's not exactly compact. (I won't call for any retcons here since we're too far in and it'd be tedious, but in the future I'm going to try to avoid hammerspace issues.)

She wore it here, and took it off on arrival. I've edited my first post to reflect that, since it makes more sense than any other option besides leaving the armour at home and going to retrieve it now.

Jayne, Korus ain't exactly a Merc :P He's a Merchant who probably caught David's eye as a decent fighter and a useful asset. He's had a few scraps, but isn't experienced, and he has good reason to check his gear as to make it all he had to push his ability beyond making small devices.

I'm counting 'Survival' to sort of include scouting ahead here, giving a +15 bonus instead of the full +30. It's kind of there, but since 'Survival' is pretty generic it seems a little too much to give it the full bonus.


Anyhoo, combat! Because it's nighttime, everyone's going to be getting a penalty to see, or take actions which involve sight, unless someone has a light. -20 to any related tests! (Since it's a full moon on a clear night, it's not totally crippling.)
Also, since the wolves took everyone by surprise, they'll be getting a +30 to their initiative rolls. (Since everyone's on edge and has been hearing howling all night. It'd be a little worse if it had been a total surprise.)

There are six wolves, arranged in a hexagon around everyone.

No one would be able to sleep in power armour, so I should probably assume Jane isn't wearing it. Unless she was on watch at the time of the attack.

We're still riding at the time of the attack, actually. You're still armed and armored.

Here's my homework, to those who are curious. A few quirks and notes:
A bunch of rolls ended up cloning previous results. Jane's zapping off a wolf rolled identically several times, with identical results. Franklin tended towards meh dice. In fact, nobody rolled extremely well, though nobody did really horribly either. No characters or enemies got killed, including the wolves, but there were lots of scrapes traded back and forth and Korus is going to need a new horse. Wolf 4 was probably the only being who did really well, and he took a hefty beating as a result.


(Also, if you're reading this, the 'Wounds remain' lists the result at the end of combat, along with any other effects. If you have any questions feel free to ask, I wrote this with my own reading in mind so it doesn't have great formatting and some things might not be totally clear to an outside reader.)

Korus only did well in avoiding getingtrapped by his horse :P

WP, do I need to roll anything to give blood and activate the generator? Or would that be an action for the TRR?

Just a minor detail, I can't see in the RP where Simo gets hit. I can see a couple of close calls, but nothing actually connecting. Unless I'm missing something.

Narric:
That's a good question... It WOULD take an action to turn the generator on and get it running, but it also has a small battery pack built in. It won't last particularly long if you start shocking up your hammer, but it should last for at least one round of combat.

Scout Sergeant: It's when the wolf who killed Korus's horse jumps at you and starts snapping. I'll make it a little more obvious next time!
