Is this a surprise round, or do we treat it simply as the first round of combat?

Neither group was particularly ready for combat, and while you knew of them you couldn't see them to do any mental preparation at all. This will count as an ordinary round.

@grandCommander13

I've never played a character in saga edition that used shields. Could you do a review of how shields work please?

How damage to shields work, How they are restored, And whether or not the mass effect game handles them any differently.

The shields from your basic-level armors won't function like SR from SAGA edition. They are basically HP that will go away first (assuming the damage is from a gunshot) and recharge every encounter assuming you have time to tamper with them. The suits that regenerate after not being damaged will be higher-end stuff that you certainly won't start with.

You don't get DR on your shields.

Athkros has the Evasion talent (Scout). Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he takes no damage from the autofire attack (which I think missed him).

Also, will there be maps for encounters? I'm kind of confused as to where the vehicles are and how many (and which) batarians are on each one. I guess the primary issue for me (so far at least) is range.

Yeah, if you have Evasion then you're a lot better off on the autofire attacks. I was only looking at your Reflex defenses.

I'm not going to normally do maps, as they take me forever and look terrible. You have, ahead of you, one vehicle and six batarians. Behind the container, where you can't see it without exiting, is the second which only has three batarians in it.

Yes, you failed by five or more so the VI's attitude worsened, but you can try again unless you fail by five or more again (which will make him Hostile, which will lock you out).

GC, need me to make a deception check every time I interact with the VI?

Yep. You're keeping it focused on you rather than on the quarian messing with its systems.

I wouldn't worry about it. I'm pretty sure I just got locked out.

You got eight higher than you did before when your difficulty only went up by three; where did you get the idea that you failed by five or more again? You didn't.
