    As far as my unit is concerned, Brick and Metro aren't with us, and will be treated as such.

    Can I check, a 'high court writ' held by what I assume is a sector ranger, probably isn't going to mean much on an Imperial Planet?

    AKA: IC wise, a group of imperial troopers wouldn't be compelled to listen to said Ranger @Nefieslab

    Hey @Ulysses I can't make heads or tails of the layout from your post. Is there a courtyard between us and the bedroom now? It's like some panoramic shot or something.

    I'm gonna request that the DM provide us with a layout of what's appropriate for this house. Otherwise we're all gonna keep making stuff up and be completely confused on positioning. @Nefieslab

    I wasn't entirely sure of what else is happening outside the room with the 4 of us, but:
    __________/ _
    I I
    I JT I
    I F2 CM I
    I
    I B I
    I v I

    My post doesn't specify how far away the bedroom is - it night be just the other side of the door at the top of my diagram, or around the other side of the house - and therefore across the courtyard.

    Edit:
    Curses, my diagram has collapsed and I was beaten to it anyway

    My main point is that I was only trying to define what I can see, not the rest of the house

    Ok, yeah. It's best to avoid vagueness when it comes to that. Otherwise we end up with the Gaba ruling where everyone dies from a PIPE because they positioned themselves inside walls, other people, or running THROUGH the explosion to avoid the explosion lol.

    I think a layout would help, it'll provide more clarity. Currently we

    A.) Don't know where the basement door is in relation to the team that has entered through the front door.

    B.) Currently don't know how far away or where the bedroom is in terms of location to the front door entrance -- which is where the Imperials had come through, or where it is in terms of the basement.

    C.) Probably would help to know if there are any extra floors or any extra rooms inside of this house.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I don't particularly care what the specifics on the layout are, I can always readjust my post and the positioning to reflect a map.

    In order for the port scanner to work, it must have been within 10 meters of the holonet relay, if that helps narrow down the courtyard issue. There was also a lawn described in my post. A courtyard suggest walls, but there doesn't seem to have been a gate for the team to knock down, and for Metro to have made the assessment that there were no visible cameras at the front door, he would have been able to see the entire courtyard from his vantage point. It may be a small courtyard with short walls and a lawn, separating the house and the street, with no gate then?

    • It's not uncommon to have stairs leading up closer to the front door, with the basement stairs farther away, sometimes underneath that set of stairs to save space. So maybe:

      • Back of house
      • 1st floor entrance to basement stairs
      • 1st floor entrance to rising stairs
      • Front door
    • Assuming the stairs are both hugging one side of the house, as they are on top of each other, it wouldn't make much sense for the bedroom to be on the same side. It could be opposite the stairs side. From the descriptions it seems to be both on the ground floor, and accessible from the same room that was entered into by the team. So assuming all that, the bedroom door could be opposite the stairs side of the house, nearer the front door than the back of the house, and in the same room the team are in.

      Which brings up the issue of windows. I'm going to say if there are any in the bedroom, they don't face the front courtyard, as then the team would of been able to see Soma coming in, and vice versa.

    ALRIGHT.

    Few things;

    1. This is the home of a single woman on a heavily industrialised planet. She's not from money and her ex-husband wasn't anyone high up. So remove any and all mentions of a courtyard - that's dumb as hell.
    2. Diagram is below - I've added your positions based on what you've written so don't get mad at me when it turns out you're not magically in the best cover imaginable.
    [​IMG]
    Key;
    • Black lines are interior walls
    • Grey lines are to show it is below the ground floor
    • Boxes with lines are stairs
    • Red lines are closed doors
    • Gaps in the black lines are open doors/archways (the large gap in the middle is an open archway separating the living area from the kitchen area)
    • Green lines are destructible objects
    • Distance between SV and bedroom door is 5m
    • Distance between other objects isn't to scale so decide amongst yourselves

    Works for me, kind of how I imagined it would look. Thanks for the map.

    A courtyard doesn't necessarily entail wealth or prestige - so I think dumb as hell might be a bit strong.

    But thank you for the map. I'll basically delete my panorama now, because it was only ever to add some geographical structure in the first place.

    Just so that everyone understands.

    • The house is not a manor house
    • The house is two stories
    • The house is detached
    • The house is still within a city - hence why there's office buildings nearby
    This is an example of the type of house it is;

    [​IMG]

    • The house has a bigger front garden than the picture with a hedge roughly 6 feet tall in place of the tiny fence on the left
    • Any questions?
