    As the name implies, this is a simple thread made for the convenience of the plot team. You will all remembered that, as per the plot system updates, rolling a perfect score means that great things can happen in your thread.

    A surprise bonus can be applied at the plot team's discretion, as mentioned in the update. Specifically this bit;

    Rolling a natural 100 is not instant mission success - depending on what it was rolled for, this can give bonuses to other rolls or, at the judgement of the Plot team, include a surprise bonus reward from that thread.

    So with that in mind this thread will be here for people who wish to ask for a ruling. Please copy and fill out the code below with the relevant information as we will assess the situation and any given rewards.

    Bonus for this roll;

    The Elloran native gives access to the cave for shelter before providing your entire party with an application of a naturally grown cream that repels the predators in question (and only the exact same type of predators) for the remainder of the thread. If asked politely the native will provide you with the recipe to make more.

    Note that this cream will ONLY effect the specific creatures currently chasing your party. It will have no effect on any other creatures.

    Bonus for this roll;

    You dispatch the current droids easily - what's more is you discover that the droids you're fighting seem to be from a bad batch and all of the current type of droids have compromised torso armour. The enemy appears to be rather cheap, using bargain-bucket droids!

    Add a bonus of +15 to any future rolls against droids during this thread.

    Bonus for this roll;

    You find the camp easily - what luck!

    What's more, you find that the bandits in question have had more than a bit to drink. The sentries are passed out at the gates and nothing but a roll lower than 5 will wake any of the other bandits for two rounds of posting.

    The bandit leader himself sleeps in the middle of the camp and has a rather odd necklace - specifically he has an un-bled, un-tainted, kyber crystal necklace. He is FS but does not know it and the necklace is a family heirloom.

    Congratulations. Here's a fitting bonus:

    The guard suffers from a terrible disease that has left him visually impaired. His dreams of podracing have been swiftly crushed. He only has several years left to live and is scraping a living as a guard to pay for surgery. But the pay sucks, he hates his job and he's desperate. With or without the Force, you can roll to persuade him to help, either as a distraction or a chance for a quick escape to take the infusers. Rolling under a ten will backfire. But if you choose to escape and he survives, he can be a future NPC aid— if paid or further persuaded.

    Regardless of the opportunity, your character receives +10 on all future stealth checks for the thread.

    Bonus for this roll;

    Your choice;

    • Your missile strikes true and disables the slaver ship completely, having wrecked the power! Before you go in for the kill however, they speak to you over short range coms and they offer to join you. It is your choice if you accept their surrender but if you do then you can bring a pirate freighter of NPCs along with you to future non-PVP space battles! (Make sure to add them to your character sheet)
    • Your missile strikes true and the slaver ship is broken in two completely! Amongst the wreckage you find co-ordinates to a smuggler's base nearby. Riches may very well be ahead of you! (Can either be done this thread to further secure the area or the beginning of a tech plot where the smuggler base assault will be counted as TWO threads towards a tech plot of your choice)

    The secret to combat?

    Let the Wookie win.

    Your attack on the first fighter is a rousing success - you gun him down without issue in a really simplistic way. The reason why? The fighter pilot was the leader of the enemy squadron and an ace who has been getting steadily over-confident! By killing their leader and best pilot in such a casual fashion, the rest of the enemy is demoralised!

    Add a +15 to all attack rolls against the original 8 fighters rolled to defend the landing pad.
