OOC Chat

It’s Monday, August 19, 1991. Yesterday, Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev was removed from office in a coup arranged by hard-line communists in his government.

Protests against the coup are breaking out across the Soviet Union. Nationalist insurgents in the various Soviet republics are declaring independence from the illegitimate “State Committee for the State of Emergency.”

The Investigators are members of a Soviet Spetsnaz, or Special Purposes Forces, unit. They were selected for this elite military service due to their political reliability and physical fitness. After intense training and as much as two years of service in Afghanistan, they are hardened combat veterans. Many suspect that the coup plotters intend to use Spetsnaz units to bully the opposition into line. However, fate has intervened and the Investigators’ Spetsnaz unit has been kicked out of bed for a less political, but even more pressing, assignment

Will this work?

If you are happy with it then yes. although one that had an "exposed" face in order to identify them from any other soldier may be better, but it's your character.

Note that when firing on these creatures the following rule applies (according to the scenario)

Deliberately shooting a Thrall in the heart requires a special called shot. The attack is at 1/5 chance. If it fails, it misses altogether. If it succeeds, it counts as an impale and the Thrall takes full damage after its armor. This cannot be attempted with a fully automatic weapon.


Now I think this is a hard enough shot to make an that 1/5 may be a bit too high so I am lowering the chance to hit to 1/2 of your chance to strike. All rolls prior to this post will count as normal though as I did not make this clear.

I'm away for a week to see my daughter and my new grand-daughter. I may be able to get on but have a busy schedule planned, as you can imagine - also I have my birthday smack bang in the middle of next week.

The grenade is not for killing them, but rather for immobilizing or scaring them away. But let's stick to firearms, then. Can the flamethrower guys get into action?
