The Core: Session 4

I get the impression scene four via Untold is always going to be short since you get one question then the scene resolves. I'll have to look into that.

The doors slide open; a series of pumpkin strips of light border the carpet. Overhead, white light pours down from fluorescent bulbs. Voices come from around the corner, and Laneira sees a familiar face when she takes a quick look. A Skip Agent, Terrance, stands against the wall while he talks with a person inside another room. He's dressed more formally than the ones outside, a dark suit, sandy hair and a pistol held tight in both hands.

“Give me the recovery key’s location, and I won't have to shoot you,” he says.

A voice responds from the other room. “You won't shoot me. I die, the pilot dies.”

Terrance laughs, “You don't think there are redundant sensors?”

Another response, “Redundant? Yes. Capable? No.”

Laneira Compels “Can Transplanted Consciousness Feel?” and gains a Fate point.

Laneira rolls Create an Advantage using Guile against Difficulty +2. Result, +4 after Invoking “Avatar of the Probability Engine” and spending one Fate point and adds Outnumbered to Terrance with a free Invoke.


“I can't let you do that,” voice raised. “You won't endanger Vince.”

“Laneira,” Terrance says. “Sorry, but there are other plans that have higher priority.”

“What would the Engine want with the recovery key?”

“To fix what you broke!”
