    228 KB IRONHEARTS War Room: Operation Solstice IronCommand !SjkHabNIL2 07/27/11(Wed)23:24 No.15728822  
    August 5, 656th year of Terra.

    Reinforcements and aide arrive swifttly from Stilemar, and training the Elementalist students here brought back memories of crawling through the pig pens of our quickfire training excercises. Meanwhile, the Chaplain's chants could be heard through the fields and through the woods as if he was challenging the ghouls to come out and take him. I heard he was born from this town. The sadness in his voice was palpable. But it gave us solid resolve to push on towards solstice and rescue the Mages there. As well as find out what it is the Voss intends to do a payload of Ibonyte that was brought up there...

    " Training is going better than expected, everyone. These students are children no longer, they are versed in field magical combat and have so far hardened themselves for the basics, and simplified their combat doctrine to work with field operations. The rest of what they can apply from their studies will depend entirely on them.

    >> Elementalists are lone units that require their teammates or them to "array" elemental hotspots so that they resonate with their spellcasting. Using any form of elemental magic is possible- provided that the necessary arrays are in place to provide for those elements

    Ah- thanks for that lovely lecture Helena, I'm sure you succeeded in NOT scaring the girls half to death and enthralling the boys with your Midian charms.

    " I try my best "

    " ehem very well, the officers are getting antsy- map reports are incoming but what we do know of the students is that the Voss are taking large amounts of Ibonyte onto the center of Solstice, and- using whatever cooperation they can muster from the Meisters there- will attempt to cast a large-scale "Radia" - the common term for Ragnyllian spellcasting - that can potentially cover this corner of the Valknyrs if not more. The city of Solstice is laregely unharmed mainly for this purpose. It also happens to be a LARGE SCALE ARRAY in itself.

    Your top priority is to make sure the enemy cannot do that. Either by disrupting the Array- or taking away the Meisters from their advantage.

    >> IronCommand !SjkHabNIL2 07/28/11(Thu)00:40 No.15729515

    When a serious logical error can be seen in their spell [Using Fire to cast an freeze spell for example, or summoning a tidal wave from ROCK]
    Or when rolls dont meet the rating due most in part by biting off more than you can chew.

    Example: Zone spell targets 6 hexes, no arrays,
    rating is then 2.

    Apply rolls for every enemy targeted by a spell.

    Sadly, the city wide array is considered an inverse array- meaning its very streets and empy spaces comprises its form. To destroy it would mean destroying major parts of the city proper. To interrupt it would also mean creating a like sized inverse array which we do not have enough time for.

    On that Note; Haunts are incorporeal - incapable of directly influencing the physical plane.

    It is possible. Airships rely heavily on the wind more so than a naval vessel will rely on the ocean. The trick is to place the arrays on a high enough altitude that would affect correct winds.

    We are still unclear on the enemy's aerial strength- but we suspect its a dispatch method for brining in more troops...

    Hmmmm airships are rather large targets whose only problem [for us] is their ability to take solid round munitions too well. Which is why I'm on my way to designing a Kit-Portable Rocket Rig. Instead of a sentry gun ; Kits can use the Rig to mount a radio controlled rocket to be fired and guided to their intended target.

    The downside ? It's not automatic like the sentry. And the Rig is one-time use. However for the punch they carry, using them on armor and ground units aint so bad either.

    So- should I go ahead with that ?

    We have just recieved an aerial from a spy plane. The Helena river seems to end here. Creating what looks like our only entry point into the city. Getting out would probably mean having to escape by air.

    However there is also a small factory to the east.

    The mission may start later tonight.

    In the event we can't retake the city and must retreat, or should we need to level most of it to prevent the array from being used, and escape route would be good to have.
    >> Unknown Informant !ngK3R2pIcU 07/28/11(Thu)13:28 No.15734117
    Information on Casters:

    Arrays determine elements available to a caster as well as the bonuses they recieve to spells.

    Normal arrays give you 1 element and +1 damage.

    The sum of the damage bonuses is equal to A. So for example you have two arrays you end up with A=2.

    Cast Zone:
    [8-Hx]+(A) x Hx

    You want to hit 3 Ghouls with an Array sum of 2. Your equation is:
    [8-3]+2 x 3
    Your rating is [8-3]+2= 7.
    The amount of dice your roll is 3.

    There only limit to the amount of hexes you can affect is your sanity. Anything with a -5 deviation is DANGEROUS. I do believe if you roll a 10, expect bad things to happen. Just try not to go there unless you ABSOLUTELY have to be a big damn hero.

    Cast Ray:
    [7]+(A) x 1
    Range 5 (Line)

    This is fairly simple. Just don't forget that it can hit multiple things in that line, where the closer the target is, the higher the rating.

    Ibonyte Crystals:
    These are your "ammo", you start with 5 and can pull more off of dead enemy casters, assuming they have some left.

    "An escape plan is a fine thing and all, but if we're going to escape by air I have to ask what we're going to be escaping in. Because if you're going to give me this fancy new rocket to play with and then tell me I can't blow all the air ships out of the sky because we might need to capture one to escape, you're just shit out of luck."
    >> Anonymous 07/28/11(Thu)13:58 No.15734388

    >> Unknown Informant !ngK3R2pIcU 07/28/11(Thu)14:41 No.15734769
    No, only casters carry the Crystal to my knowledge. Which means unless you "Beat up the other casters for their lunch money" you got 5 and only 5.
