They're usable. They're basically pop up tents. Won't protect from vacuum or even very cold weather.

Unfortunately, Nevynxx, the suit is not a good fit for Matsu or any other high DEX character. Yes, it raises your KAC from +2 to +4, but it also imposes a maximum of +1 to your DEX bonus, which negates the improvement in armor (and makes your EAC worse). In addition the reinforced EVA suits cut your speed by 5 feet and impose a -3 Armor Check Penalty.

These things were really designed for working rather than combat. Still, anyone with a Dexterity of 13 or lower might benefit from the protection, if they're willing to sacrifice speed and physical skill checks.

I'll get a post up shortly. And those suits are of exactly the same type that Aja is using

Crap!

This talk about the reinforced EVA only allowing +1 Dex to be used for the defense had me going back and checking and yep! I screwed up. My AC should be 15/12, not 16/13. Sorry, Ruff. I know there was at least one attack that should have taken off Aja's HP instead of her Stamina because of this

Editing my character sheet.

By the way, I checked the Starfinder Character sheet and it also lets the extra point of Dex through. Never mind, I had to change everything manually as there is no auto fill in that section of the sheet yet.

Well, we both overlooked that. No worries.

I wanted to point out for your record-keeping that Aja switched to Vette's Lazer Pistol(19/20 ammo) and pulled out her two Frag Grenade I from her hideaway arm.

Edit: In fact, with the Lazer Pistol, DPP, two grenades, and a handaxe at her disposal, Aja has quite the arsenal

...are there any feats required for Dual Wielding pistols? (don't have my book with me at the moment)

So basically any character can carry as many weapons as they have hands, but all it means is that if he full-attacks, he can use two different weapons (instead of one twice). So you can full attack (giving yourself two attacks at -4 penalty) while holding just one weapon or multiple weapons (up to four for a Kasatha or other 4-armed race), but either way, the full attack allows you a maximum of two attacks at -4 each, and a single attack allows just one with no penalty, regardless of how many weapons you are actually holding. Example: a Kasatha holding four laser pistols can shoot a maximum of twice in a round at -4/-4 or once at no penalty. A human holding one laser pistol may do the same. The only difference is that the human MUST fire both from a single laser (draining the battery twice), whereas the kasatha can pick which pistols he shoots.

There's also the multi-weapon fighting feat that reduces the penalty for a full attack from -4/-4 to -3/-3. It applies only to small arms and operative weapons, and presumably only to characters actually holding two weapons.

Damnnit, thought I'd checked that.

Yeah. The 1e in me wanted to make a dual pistol wielding fiend, which as an envoy I can drop the penalty considerably. But have been also thinking about sniper rifle stuff :-p

On a side note Mendev actually has a pretty decent survival score. I'll get a post up. He'll elect to go first for tracking purposes.

FYI, Khalil, everyone can ride the rig at the same time, so you'll reach the Drift Rock as a group. With that in mind, I am going to go ahead and post the next game thread as it is now Friday. Of course anything left to do or say on the Acreon can be said or done in your next posts and then you can play out your arrival on the Rock.

Okay. I didn't fell too far behind this time. But I feel bad that I haven't been active in games for the past 3 days! Catching up now. Now that my last IronDM entry is in, I should be back to just "too much work to do at work!" instead of "Work + IronDM."

Excited to get facehugger'd.

EDIT: ruffdove, any chance you could unlock the previous thread so I can copy/paste my posting format?

EDIT2: Heh. I really appreciate the "Drift Rock=Down" comment. Gimme some of that Ender's Game!
