    Here's the previous thread.

    You and Perkins just finished compy-proofing the wiring in the basement of the wind turbines. Central mentioned on the radio that guests at the Iguanadon Inn have complained about power issues and wanted you to check it out.

    For successfully getting power restored, you get a skill point.

    Athletics [Basic]
    Firearms [Basic]
    First Aid [Basic]
    Vehicles [Basic]
    Any Basic Skill [Specialty]

    You can upgrade a [Basic] skill with a [Specialty] in that skill, as per the following examples.

    + Mechanics [Automotive]
    + First Aid [Lacerations]
    + Athletics [Climbing]
    + Dinosaur Knowledge [Specific Species]

    [Basic] skills are not required to attempt actions (i.e. you can still drive a car under normal circumstances without Vehicles [Basic]), but it will make more difficult actions easier to attempt or lessen penalties or failures. [Specialty] skills further this.

    Additional [Basic] and [Specialty] skills will be largely chosen by the players, and will be acquired as you progress through the story or gain experience in an area.

    Perkins nails the dilo in the neck with a tranq, but you miss completely due to your inexperience with firearms, and because the flashlight taped to the gun is making it imbalanced.

    The dilophosaur jerks back when it gets hit with the tranq and looks at you. Then it hisses and unfolds this weird collar thing.

    Yeah, but just to play devil's advocate, there's not any evidence to suggest they didn't have that either. Skin doesn't fossilize (though skin imprints very rarely do) and it's not like venom glands do either. On top of that, it's not like we have tons of Dilo skeletons either.

    Which road should we take to get to the desalinization plant? The main service road is a seriously roundabout route to get there. There's the tour road, but we don't know if any tours are currently active on it, and where.

    Also, going one way on the tour road takes us along the Tyrannosaur pen and going the other takes us between the baryonx and dilophosaur pens.

    Australian Frill Necked Lizards have a cartilaginous support system. Cartilage doesn't fossilize easily, and combined with the rareity of Dilo skeletons it wouldn't be so surprising if it didn't show up. Muscle's I'll grant you but it wouldn't take much muscle power to inflate a light frill that's mainly skin and cartilage.

    Are we allowed to drive on the Tour Roads? If so, the bosses probably wouldn't want us driving by any active tours if there are. We'll probably have to call in, ask for permission to drive on the tour road, and ask where any tours we might need to avoid currently are.

    An adult dilophosaur is ten feet tall. Mere cartilage support might work for something as small as a frilled lizard, but we're talking about a great difference of scale.

    The dilo would need greater structural support for its frill.

    Unfortunately, West/Northwest means... it's heading in our general direction. And also in the direction of the Raptor pens.

    Wait a second, I have an idea. The head of maintenance had to have access to some of the other radio channels, right? Probably too many to memorize. We should A) go see if he has them written down anywhere on what's left of him after the compy's finished and if that's a bust we B) use his clearance to see if that info is anywhere on the computer system.

    At the very least, there should be general frequencies for all maintenance staff. We could get in touch with any of our fellow mechanic buddies. And, given how tight-lipped Dispatch has been, the maintenance crews probably don't know the true scope of the situation. We could fill them in, posing as Ryan. They probably don't know he's dead yet.

    It appears to be a correspondence between a D. Nedry and Daniel Ryan. Nedry makes mention that BioSyn has developed it's own cloned dinosaurs and made a zoo for them in Jamaica. Nedry talks about how a "Lewis Dodgson" wants the competition for the zoo taken out. Nedry then goes on to offer Ryan a position at the new park, with a substantially upgraded salary and benefits, if he orchestrates this.

    Besides, to build a gas flamethrower, we'd need more than just a welding torch. Oxyacetaline would go a long way, but we'd still need something to keep it from being cumbersome, a specialized nozzle to focus the spray and get more than a couple feet of range. Sure, we'd only need a few feet to spook them out of the room, but if you're wanting to use it as an actual weapon, we need as much range as we can get.

    First Post, First Served: Real simple. First post determines what happens.
