    931 KB Transpace Guard Quest B5: Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 01/28/12(Sat)02:16 No.17704904  
    On a level of reality just below our own, the Crossover began. A thousand walls between fiction and the Metaworld tore open, releasing the hungry forces of Sue from their cannibalized homes. Metaworld itself- connection between Fiction and Reality, and the result of seven billion human's perception of Reality, was nearly rent apart.

    In the aftermath, with millions dead and cities flattened, the Rifts existed still. The group that had managed the feat of slaying the Sues stepped forward to defend these gates between Meta and Fiction. They knew that the only way to restore stability was to keep to the Canon, as thousands of Meta inhabitants disappeared into the worlds of Fiction, intent on their own agendas.

    The name of these guardians?

    The Transpace Guard.

    There are millions of millions of Canons out there. From video games, to books, to movies, to movies, traditional games, and more. The goal of the Transpace Guard is to ensure that nobody fucks with the story, and that Canon is preserved, so that the Metaverse remains stable, and no great castastrophe happens again.

    Even now, valiant heroes fight to restore stability, from countless bad fanfictions, disastrous crossovers, hostile entities in the Meta, and author-self-inserts known as S.U.E.s.
    But they cannot do this with strength of will alone.

    Men need weapons to fight. Ships to traverse the meta. Troops to fight with. And they always need more money.
    That's where you come in.

    You are working with the Transpace Guard's Requisitions division, your job is to Loot worlds of any useful items.

    Looting has two jobs.
    #1: Don't fuck up the canon.
    #2: Grab everything you can without violating #1.

    The Transpace Guard keeps a list of worlds. Sometimes, you can't get what you need by farming or manufacturing.
    It's the Looters' jobs to get Staff, unique Items, interesting Technology, Blueprints, and anything that looks like it'd be tricky to make, but easy to grab.

    Looters' casualty rates are second only to Storage, because they go into worlds knowing well what they do will break the Law. but as long as it does not break the Canon, then all is well.

    Looters are also paid extremely well*. Well, if they're good at their jobs.
    Looters have a budget with which to Rent items, troops, and heroes.
    Looters then receive Dosh as a reward for turning in their loot.
    Get a lot of loot, then you get a lot of Dosh, you pay the Rent, and keep the rest for yourselves.

    You, the players, are a small crew of Looters.
    You have a small ship, a small amount of funds, and a very small amount of trust from HQ.
    But, since small ships are cheap and SOMETIMES Looters distinguish themselves, there are thousands of new looter teams every month sent out. And of the 20 or so that come back, over 4.99% of them become rich and famous.

    You just completed a world, and are returning to base.

    Want more info?

    HUSH. Don't give the real Meta OP Ideas when he reads this!
    In all honesty, it'd be like having a human try to hand-build a SUE-tech Giga Buster Oberon, Last Strike of the Ancients. Sure, you could try, but it'd fizzle out due to the sheer nature-difference between the user and the intended tool. The SUEper Reality Emitter, likely a brainchild of an Editor Sue, would likely fall apart into gizmos and incomprehensible electronics when activated. Still, that doesn't mean it doesn't fall apart silently... (read: SUE-splosion of dissapointment, anger, and reality-warping SUE-force)

    Let me repeat from the codex.


    Players kill the Sue in one session after exploring approximately 3% of the world.
    Players side with the Sue.
    Players openly reveal themselves, and rally the forces of the world to exile the Sue
    Players openly reveal themselves, and convince the world to ally with the Sue
    Players openly reveal themselves, try to seduce/bar fight with the major characters, and ignore the Sue
    Players defeat the Sue, and declare themselves the new Sues of the world.
    Players get curbstomped by the Sue and die
    Players are fucking morons and require constant babysitting to prevent their reveal and/or curbstomp.
    Players stealthily try to raise the militarisation or tech level of the world, rather than try to combat the Sue directly.
    Players fanboy/fangirl over the fictional world, and the session devolves into fanboy arguing and/or fetish shit. At this point, No players, You are the Sue.

    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 01/28/12(Sat)02:38 No.17705121

    HIGH Priority of things to loot:
    #1: Xen Crystal
    Used to spark teleportation between Xen and Earth, this item is useful for some of Requisitions' transport devices.
    #2: High-ranking Scientists
    Many Black Mesa Scientists died during the alien teleportation, army cleanup, or nuclear explosion. They have useful knowledge. Get them for us.
    #3: Military Assassins
    Highly trained military troops are valuable.
    #4: Vortigaunts
    Considerably more rare than a regular human scientist or soldier, these sentient electricity-and-life-wielding creatures are of use to us.
    #5: Gonarch
    In this Canon, the Gonarch never died. Its ability to produce Headcrabs would be useful to us.
    #6: Gargantua
    20 foot tall creatures impervious to bullets. They will be useful to us.

    MEDIUM priority of things to loot:
    #1: Bee guns
    We can't make these, and they're hard to farm. Grab some for us.
    #2: Regular Scientists
    'Nuff said
    #3: Regular army troops and security guards
    More staff are always good.
    #4: Any other creatures you encounter
    While Vortigaunts and Gargantuas are the most useful, any new specimen could potentially have use to us.
    #5: Gluon Gun
    Though we are able to produce these items, it is an expensive process. It is typically cheaper to acquire them on the field.
    #6: And of course, anything else that isn't nailed down.

    #1. Talk to the G-man. Find out what he's up to.

    Things I think we need:
    Good Transportation (like teleporting)
    Capturing tools (we need to take things that are actively hostile to us, and capture them safely for requisitions)
    Stealth (we don't want open fighting really, we just want to nab stuff and stow it)
    Healing Magic (we aren't going to succeed at every stealth or capture roll, and we want to be able to undo damage taken, or given to captured specimens)

    A D&D mage or rogue with a wand of Hold Person and a wand of Hold Monster would help us capture things, as could a FF Tactics Thief (steal heart). FFT Thieves are cheap, too, so we get multiple attempts. Won't work on monsters, possibly, and need opposite gender of the target.

    The Stun Bomber does what you'd expect. It's a grenade launcher that fires knockout grenades.
    The Cloak and dagger allows permanent invisibility under the conditions: Stationary, Dry, Not on fire. It also allows you to move slowly and remain invisible, and you can move quickly with it for a short time.
    The Teleport support can transport objects up to the size and weight of a Transport aircraft or an Abrams tank, and works even underground or in an anti-magic field.
    The Alien Containment unit contains aliens. They do not break free.

    >1.mk2 tranq pistol
    2 DOSH
    >2.Mosin Nagant

    Based on risk assessment and equipment involved, we would probably just avoid getting the Gargantua and Gonarch at that rate?

    0 DOSH equipment, huh? That's cool. But we need weapons for the people that are coming with us.

    Let's see. Since an IS can be compacted when not in use, we could have her on foot for most of the operation and bring out the IS if things get bad, and by "get bad" I mean, we have her put up the energy shields to tank a couple of hits while we escape.

    The Engineer is willing to help you for 20 DOSH.
    You may get one of his teleport schematics for 4 DOSH, but how would you build it?

    >Do you think a Stormtrooper (40k) would fit our needs? I know a Kasrkin might be expensive.
    20 DOSH for 1, with all equipment.

    A conventional special forces trooper is 15 DOSH, same as the FROG. Why Fox, specifically, though?

    Here's some capturing weapons that I've thought of:

    Stunsticks/stunstaves (Battletech canon) - Delivers an electrical pulse to targets it hits. Used by many police forces in the Inner Sphere to temporarily paralyze or subdue unruly citizens. Leaves no lasting harm, very hard to kill people with it.

    Sonic Stunner (Battletech canon) - fires an ultra-high frequency soundwave to stun/incapacitate targets. Can cause hearing loss. Units that have sufficient sound filtering or that can't hear or that don't have ears are unaffected.

    Hack Tool (Bioshock 2) - can fire darts that can remotely hack robots and devices. Remote hack darts have to be done manually (i.e. dice roll), automatic hack darts are an auto-success. Can also deploy mini-turrets with a machinegun. 9 manual-hack remote darts per clip, 6 auto-hack darts per clip, 4 mini-turrets per clip.

    How much would a Tachikoma unit be?
    >> Not completely retarded 01/28/12(Sat)03:08 No.17705445
    We need to find out targets to collect them.

    How much would enough sets of xray glasses (like OP mentioned last time in his preferred loadout) cost?

    a minecrafter might be a useful troop, we might use it to tunnel around anti teleport stuff. (might be a waste of DOSH though)

    what scifi/magic sensor systems are good?

    accident recovery:

    Anyone have suggestions for stasis or resurrection gear?
    Maybe that borderlands resurrection station tech, rigged to snatch anyone who dies nearby?
    (if we had that we'd only need to care about objects and data, not people)

    How much would 2 or so nannybags cost? (one for head storage, one for collecting those heads with)

    That xcom Storage thing sounds nice, as does the stun gun thing.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 01/28/12(Sat)03:09 No.17705454
    Stun rods are 1 DOSH.
    Sonic stunners are 3 DOSH
    a Hack tool is 4 DOSH without turrets, 8 DOSH with turrets.

    >How much would a Tachikoma unit be?
    I know enough about what that word means to never put one anywhere near the players.
    If you want a Securitron, which is the same thing, it is 10 DOSH.

    OP, how much would Battle Armor from Battletech cost?

    3 or so elementals (or other appropriate battle armor) should be enough to do heavy lifting. They're also immune to 3059-era small arms fire, which probably translates into virtual immunity from infantry lacking heavy anti-tank weaponry in this era.

    If Elementals are too expensive, there are also a handful of non-combat & atmospherically sealed exoskeletons that are used for moving heavy rubble and various debris for disaster recovery efforts. They're also somewhat thin-skinned, being non-combat armor. How much would these cost, OP?
    >> Rynex !3KCroq6wAA 01/28/12(Sat)03:12 No.17705477
    For sensor systems, we still need to figure in our basic armaments for our team that's going in.

    1 DOSH for reactive radar and 3 DOSH for soliton radar sounds like a good deal, IMHO. Both will help us get a good situational awareness.

    I can Google for a map of Black Mesa, but they don't make much sense to me.

    You have a Heartbeat sensor for 2 DOSH, a multi-purpose radar for 4 DOSH, and a Detect Life 120ft ring will run you about 4 DOSH too.

    Going to bed now, but it looks like this mission is off to a good start with thinking through what we'll need, and what our encounters will be like!

    One last item for our DOSH wish list; a portable force field / magic shield against projectiles. So when they start shooting at us, we can get behind the shield until we can teleport out of there. Probably not an essential item, just a consideration. In fact, probably won't have enough DOSH for it, after the necessary tools are req'd.

    OP, do Terran Ghosts still retain the 25 dosh cost?

    How much would a run-of-the-mill dark templar cost?

    Ghosts are naturally trained infiltrators and assasins. They also have training in hacking security systems, databases, etc. In such a technology-heavy place as Black Mesa, this may come in handy. They may also have EMP rounds, or lockdown rounds to deal with mechanical opponents.

    Dark templar may be worth considering because of their permanent cloaking, devastating warp-blades, and generally a lot of experience fighting futuristic human forces and mutation-prone alien abominations. They would be heavy scouts and could also agilely fight with alien forces as they use stunning weaponry to disable them.

    >"find thing, snatch thing with a teleporter, repeat" myself,
    That seems like a valid plan.

    A primer on TMAR:
    TMAR stands for "Techno-magical ammo regeneration". Typically less expensive than ammo for long missions, the cost of attaching it to a gun depends on both the weight of the projectile and the kinetic energy.
    TMAR units can be overloaded - greatly increasing their rate of fire for 3 seconds - but overheating the weapon and running the risk of damaging the user.

    For instance:
    a TMAR Devastator fires 40x46mm grenades at a rate of 180 rounds per minute.
    a TMAR Stun gun fires an 8-meter-blast-radius stun grenade at a rate of 90 rounds per minute.
    You do not need to reload either.

    >OP, do Terran Ghosts still retain the 25 dosh cost?
    Yes. Ghosts are 25 DOSH
    >How much would a run-of-the-mill dark templar cost?
    DTs are 30 DOSH.
    It is equivalent to a 9 DOSH X-ray lens.
    I will give you one for 8 DOSH.

    a MAP is indeed 0 DOSH.

    Note: Dark Templar are permanently invisible, come with weak shields, and their cutting blades.
    Their HP and Shields are low, and their movement speed is slow.
    Note that Detector units can point out their location to enemies,
    And, enemies that can see through invisibility can fire upon them.
    Dark Templar are elite and well trained.

    We may still lack heavy lifting and some proximity detection equipment with that loadout. A Ghost might be useful for the hacking/cloaking and arms training.

    Also, OP, how much do first aid kits cost? Or basic provisions such as rations and water/gatorade? Or handguns?

    Make sure our final loadout includes as many free restraining items as we can feasibly use:

    A Moebius reactor will Double the ghost's energy generation.
    The ghost can already CLOAK.
    He will be able to Cloak indefinitely with the reactor, but will "break even" on energy.
    If he wishes to Lockdown, Snipe, or EMP, then he will need to spend time uncloaked.

    We should make looting a local armory and any corpses a minor early task, so we can grab native explosives and weapons.
    Can we confiure our teleporter to scan and teleport things conditionally:
    ie an armory has noone within visual range, teleport its security camera, then the contents of the room?
    or do we have to target it manually?
    if we do, maybe send our heroes to an armoury first.

    The spaceship reports that it is RISKY to teleport enemies before they are unconscious or co-operative, as the enemy must appear in the teleport room for a brief second before it is sent to its destination.

    Line of sight to the ship, or to the hero?
    How is a target defined? does the hero point a laserpointer like gadget at something to teleport it, and how long would it take for them to teleport a rooms worth of guns, research, or other loot, if we just grabbed everything and sorted it out on the ship?

    Do the heroes have to take loot outside for beaming up, or can they just send anything from anywhere as long as they have line of sight from a hero?

    do we have sensors capable of finding all the rooms etc in black mesa well enough to teleport a hero down to designate an object for teleport, then beam them back out to repeat?

    To at least one troop.
    You define it by sending data from your visor or head monitor or looking device, and the Ship's transporter can target via that.
    If it would fit in the teleporter, it would take approximately 5 seconds to transport a room's worth of guns, with a cooldown of 30 seconds between each teleport.
    You do not have sensors capable of finding the deepest rooms.

    The costs of things involved made getting more members unfeasible.

    There are a few items we absolutely need, like the containment unit and heavy teleport support.
    The cost of an additional stun bomber plus stealth gear is 10 per troop, so the more troops we field with this gear, the more we need to spend on gear as well. We had 25 left with the basics and a single Ghost, and that gave us enough to at least get a second ghost in case the first bites the dust.

    My original list called for a group of 4 with 2 stun bombers, and each having cloaking gear. We had enough points for each of those troops to be worth about 6 DOSH, which means bottom of the barrel troops.

    I think the current list is as good as we're going to get, though if you want to work on an alternate list, that's cool. Maybe try a different set of tools or methods.

    The only other method I can think of would be to have some really really good magical detection. Scrying tools, plus two or three dedicated finders, and then just rely on the heavy teleport to bring things into the ship. Have to have at least one stunner still, since it will take 30 seconds to recharge the teleporter and move them into containment. Also poses significant risk in teleporting still-conscious targets onto the ship (or else teleporting soft squishy wizards down to stun things).

    We are making runs in and out, we aren't holding ground or even trying to fight.

    If things look really bad in a situation, we teleport our ghosts out of there and try to reinsert somewhere else.
    We don't need to kill a single thing to succeed at this mission. We DO need to capture stuff, so that's what I've focused on in planning.
    I thought about getting more stealth gear or troops, but I really want to keep that power shield, as it provides a lot of protection from initial incoming fire, and regenerates quickly. It can also potentially protect us from losing a ghost due to a bad decision later on.

    If, for some reason, we absolutely have to fight, the ghosts do have a decent gun on their own and some sniper capabilities. They can fire at something, run and let shield recharge, go back, fire some more, etc.

    Pretty much. We just nab scientists, port them up, grab useful research or other stuff, port those up.

    If we encounter isolated pockets of marines/assassins, we could possibly stun them into unconsciousness then port them up, but it's probably best to avoid any possible confrontations. We probably don't want to take on groups of 5+ aliens or assassins or marines unless they don't/can't notice cloaked stuff and are all packed tightly in a group.

    We don't have a set amount of objectives per se, so we're just here to get as much as we can without being blown up, or without mucking up canon. For the purposes of the latter, we might want to question whether some staff/items we loot are essential to the canon characters' survival or not.

    >What's OP's take on a comparison between the ability levels of these three troop types?

    25 DOSH. It is a skilled special forces operative, known for using high-tech gear. If you have played a custom map of Starcraft where you are given one troop and need to get from point A to point B, the Blacklight would be able to do this.
    The Blacklight trooper comes with his visor, grenades, armor, rifle w/ underslung grenade launcher, and automatic shotgun.

    >Militaire Sans Frontieres
    Costs 25 DOSH.
    The MSF also has an Analyzer, that can analyse enemy troops, a Sonic eye, that can view sound sources, and a Camo suit, which can make the user mostly invisible, in addition to 2 Main guns, 3 Rations, and 1 Sidearm.
    Roughly as skilled as the Ghost and Blacklight, except at Psionics (ghost is much stronger), Tech use (Blacklight is much stronger), and Melee combat (MSF is much stronger).

    15 DOSH
    It's a well-trained troop, not as strong as a Spetsnaz or SAS officer, but makes up for it by being able to jump and cling to walls.

    >we might want to question whether some staff/items we loot are essential to the canon characters' survival or not.

    The following items and staff are required for the Canon:

    How the fuck did you do that tier:
    the G-man must survive
    Gordon Freeman must survive

    You'd have to be TRYING tier:
    Adrian Sheppard must survive.
    Barney Calhoun must survive.
    Black Mesa must be completely destroyed.

    Dr. Magnusson must survive.
    Alyx Vance must survive.

    By default, Dr. Kleiner is in the holdout right before Gordon Freeman is teleported to Xen, in the high-tech teleportation labs.
    He escapes by using the teleportation device about an hour after Gordon uses it.

    By default, Dr. Magnusson is a scientist holed up near the old Teleport labs that require Barney Calhoun to travel to Xen.
    He escapes by teleporting to the surface, and using an SUV to escape.

    It is unknown how Eli and Alyx escape by default.

    If you have heavy teleport support, you may keep a supply of 0 DOSH items in an unused building in any of the cities of the world. They may be teleported in and out as needed.
    Note that you are space limited to the size of a small house. Any more and they will not fit into what you are carrying.

    We should also ask him if he can be clear and try to not be vague in telling us what he wants us to do, with the justification "We are less likely to mess things up for you if you help us, and tell us exactly what you want us to do for you."

    Well, both survive canonically, so as long we don't kill them, we are potentially in the clear. Eli loses his leg anyways, so if we happen to do it instead of some accident, we still aren't harming canon with that.

    Only if we have to turn them over to G-man or something does it risk harming canon, as they may or may not be returned.

    I say we make it a point to try and capture them into containment, as if G-man contacts us later, we can get even more info, even if we end up disagreeing with him at that time.

    I also vote for capturing them like we capture any other target; stun bombs and teleport into containment.

    Everyone who heard it should write down what they heard the gman say, without discussing him until after they finish recording their version of events. (Better evidence of gmans words meands more reward when we get back to base)

    Lets start operation LOOT EVERYTHING

    My suggestion for early targets:
    any scientists we can find, even if they are near death.
    keep a watch from our ship for any scientists thet make it to the surface, we want to snatch them via teleporter as soon as we see them

    Scientists die easily, so we should get those quickly before they become headcrab food

    It was a 10 hour game.
    It has been completed in 30 minutes.
    In fact, it's possible to sequence break one of the bosses, and avoid killing her.
    I believe she's your 2nd highest "Loot" item.

    >something semi-related, we can teleport tourniquet/amputation materials, amirite? its in house just fine, i'd think
    You have a Medkit, and an Omni-tool. Medkits have gauze, and Omni-tools can amputate.

    Xen Crystal: 50 for each Large, 10 for each Small
    Gonarch: 25. There is only one Gonarch.
    Gargantua: 15 each
    High rank scientist: 10 each
    Military assassin: 7.5 each
    Vortigaunt: 5 each

    Scientist: 2.5 each
    Alien aircraft: 2.5 each
    Troop/Guard: 2 each
    Alien grunt: 2 each
    Gluon gun: 2 each
    Bee gun: 1.5 each
    Tank/Helicopter: 1.5 each
    Houndeye: 1 each
    Alien controller: 1 each

    Yes. The sequence-broken boss is in there.

    You are currently in high-altitude flight over Black Mesa.
    Portals have started.
    The US Military will be here in 10 minutes. (normally 2 hours, but ... speedrunners, ya know?)

    yeah but... teleporting him into an emergency room waiting area, letting TRAINED medical professionals suture the leg wound, then removing him via more teleportation works better.
    We just make sure to find a not-so-busy place post mission to do the amputation bit.

    I would like to have the spectre be near even during the operation though, in case another group tries to nab him for G-Man, which is why I suggest not bothering with the amputation until we're through with the Black Mesa facility.

    OK, let's see if we can slow down their entry.

    Plan for perusal: Teleport down to the front entrance, just inside and use the omni-tool to hack the door shut, then have the ghost EMP blast the lock to keep it shut. That won't stop them for too long, but it should give us a little more time to collect loot without being shot at by two different groups.
    >> Bootleg OP !!Cuw+lR6NxOH 01/28/12(Sat)22:45 No.17715471
    Where to find items:
    Xen Crystal:
    Small one is located in the Mass Spectrometer chamber.
    Gordon abandoned it there in his rush to get out the door, and nobody else is willing to retrieve it when they are running for their lives.

    Large ones are located at Half Life's final boss, on Xen. Prior to the boss's death, they are attached to the wall, and he guards them. After the boss's death, they have been shattered into 3 smaller pieces each, and on the floor.

    Gonarch is on Xen. Your HUD map shows which portal leads to her, if you can reach it. The teleportation labs are deep undergrond.

    Gargantua roam both Black Mesa and Xen. Your HRV will give you a bonus to finding them, and your Skyranger will keep an eye out for any on the surface.
    There is one Canon one that is incredibly easy to reach, and multiple Canon ones that are not.

    High Rank Scientists are in the Teleportation Labs, Weapons labs, and Old Teleportation Labs.
    Military Assassins roam Black Mesa randomly. There is a large cache of them in one specific location that you could reach, with a bit of effort. Otherwise they are random encounters.
    Vortigaunts roam Black Mesa and Xen randomly.

    Scientists are in Black Mesa. They are likely to be found in dark areas, cupboards, crawlspaces, and other places out of the way.
    Troops are in Black Mesa. They're everywhere.

    Alien Aircraft do not appear for 20 minutes, but are in the air above Black Mesa when they do.
    Alien Grunts are in Black Mesa. They do not show up for 20 minutes. They are placed randomly.
    The Gluon Guns are located either in the Weapon lab, or on the corpses of Scientists who went to Xen.
    Bee guns are found on Alien Grunts' corpses.

    Tanks are found outside.
    Helicopters are found outside.
    Houndeyes are found inside, typically in corridors or sewers. There is a containment field containing them, that you could access easily.
    Alien controllers are typically found only on Xen or in the teleportation labs.

    Batman from Arkham City comes with two options:
    70 Credits for one that refuses to use lethal methods
    90 Credits for one that is willing to use lethal methods

    In both cases, he comes with a Soul gem, that you are required to loot when he dies. If you lose that Soul gem, you are fired.

    Gordon should be bunnyhopping his way past Eli right about ... now.
    Alyx is in the Anomalous Materials' employee lounge.

    Dr. Magnusson has a microwave casserole. In his rush, Gordon Freeman did not destroy it.
    If you wish to win a 5 DOSH bet from a co-worker, you must find this microwave casserole and destroy it.

    >Plan for perusal: Teleport down to the front entrance
    Black Mesa does not have a "Front entrance". It is a massive underground and surface complex with many surface access points.

    Presumably it has a visitor's office, if you wish to go there first.

    The small launcher has TMAR.
    It has a rating of 100,000 shots before TMAR breaks down, assuming you do not overcharge it.

    PROXY: 45 DOSH
    ZERO: 75 DOSH

    You may teleport to any access point on the surface, and use an elevator.
    However, Anomalous Materials is restricted. You will likely need a way to bust through doors.

    The closest elevator leads to the MAIN LOUNGE.
    From there, you must travel through a WASTE PIPE, and some CORRIDORS, and then you will be at Anomalous Materials.

    There is one main road leading in.
    Your teleporter is willing to teleport this chunk of road, but warns that the road will not be intact after this teleport.

    The main lifts are ... Access shafts A, through Z, through AD. There are hundreds of side accesses, and easily thousands of vents and pipes.

    However, the lift shaft is too BIG to get a solid view straight down!

    The lift craft reveals that Stun bombs are not safe to teleport, as they may explode in the containment field. You would need to arc the Stun bombs straight upward and catch them near the very peak of their arc, and even then, it's not very likely.

(What if we just put all our scientists on a room in the ship, or a safe place like a convention center, and have them use their knowledge to help with our "Rescue efforts" (if we do this, give them a copy of the maps and a radio)

    If we can question him in containment, put him there.
    I don't want a "harmless" scientist running loose anywhere near the teleporter controls.
    We don't have that many people on mission, and I don't want to spare one to babysit him.

    Hmm... do you really trust these random scientists?
    I don't see any indication they will necessarily be on our side, or willing to work with our plans. I think it will become obvious we're just here to loot, and if they're roaming free they might cause problems.

    On the Meta-Skyranger, with the Players.
    In containment
    With Alice and Bob
    Which is most useful?

    Tell them if they cooperate, we'll snag their families before we leave?
    The scientists are coming with us anyway, and a lot of the world canonically gets fucked over HARD.
    Once we put them in a "think tank", we can barricade the doors and windows, and let them know of the horrors outside.

    I think I'd be happier if we defaulted to starting them in containment, and then have a white list we can add individuals to if we trust them, or get cooperation through pulling their family.

    I don't think we have enough time to pull out family members for every scientist we capture... we're already up against a speed run attempt.

    Alice and Bob approach him. Alice, being a spectre, is cloaked. Bob is recharging his pack for now, and holsters his gun.

    We were experimenting with teleportation, and I think we caused a Resonance Cascade. Creatures from the Border world came through!"

    So no "dump them in a barricaded gymnasium with all the black mesa security we loot"?

    Canon has gordon disables at one point, we cound use that to potentially delay things for hours or days, maybe have the scientists call their family and tell them to go out into their back yards so we can teleport them from orbit, snagging anyone in the back yard, with emphasis on "THE UNIVERSE WILL BREAK AND WE ALL DIE IF ANYONE ELSE COMES!" whether it is true or not?

    The scientists will know where their families live, and their phone numbers. with that info we can have them contact them and make pick up easier?

    or just offer to try saving them after we get the loot, using some bullshit like "We need this knowledge to save future humanity" or "we can only save so much, we're trying to save the things that will help humanity most" or something

    OK, idea of something to tell them:

    "We're a fast response team sent in to salvage as much research material and human life as possible.
    We're NOT part of the army, and the politics of the situation leave us unclear as to how they will react to us. We fall under Homeland Security."

    Sounds good, i'd like to save their families for both DOSH and motivation for the scientists to cooperate, family is a powerful motivator.

    They know we can teleport, maybe we can get them to tell their families to line up in their back yards at a specific time, so we have a time and place for each group of family (we save their family, human resources doesnt have to brainwash them, more DOSH for us?)
