Alright, I'll go ahead and roll to see if I can't install a third option within the hour. Get a fate point on hand and tag Fortune Roulette and/or Laser Focus in case I go lower than +0.

Also, if I manage to get a +3 or greater roll can I just say that I built the whole drone from scratch within the hour instead of using my stunt?

EDIT
How much time left do we have before we have to attempt to save the Queen?

Okie dokie.

Several months still. (About... ten months, I think? I'll need to double-check the timelines, but that's within a month or so).

It was ten months at the start. It took five days for the Primate's lackey to get to us and another five days for us to make it to Cimmura. Then it was three weeks of us waiting around waiting to spring the ambush. Add in the four days of travel round trip... I think it's been five weeks? So we have eight months three weeks left, at my guess.

Also, the drone I'm imagining is less helicopter and more airplane. Put it in a tube like a mortar round that launches it high into the sky before activating its propulsion and engaging in flight. But I guess it doesn't matter, either way, beyond aesthetics?

I was thinking quadcopter, because most drones that I've seen were the quadcopter type (and the ability to hover might be useful).

Why not have both?

By my calculations, at top speed, that drone can fly from one end of the area that the keypad can reach it to the other in, um, 14.4 seconds.

So, if you don't fly slowly or have good reactions, you'd quickly lose control of the drone...

Fortunately, with the lack of cellphone towers around, Felix can boost his transmitter's power a lot more and maintain control of his drone over far longer ranges than a mere sixty metres.

Isn't there a Pandion along?

No, Weremensh is right; Sir Ulath is a Genidian Knight, not a Pandion Knight. They're closely related, but not actually the same order (the Pandions go with black armour and are headquartered nearby, the Genidians seem to be more chainmail-and-big-axes types, on top of which Sir Ulath has a magnificently horned helmet, and are headquartered way, way, way to the north of here).

Young Berit as supposed to be with you as the Pandion representative. I'll go and edit him in.

Empathy rolls would be nice, which means it's Arkady's time to shine. I'll throw him a fate point to boost that if he needs it.

And let's hear it for cold read.

Well, the guild master seems thoughtful; perhaps he'll be curious.

I can retroactively add the FATE point, but what Aspect are you tagging with it?

I'm tempted to just lay it down. "Yes discretion is part of it, and we'll explain that part in time, but mostly we're just tired of people trying to jerk us around. Now are we going for ribs or not? Because it's lunchtime and I'm hungry.

We could simply go with 'two men have had their lungs burned out from the insides already, that's why.'
