ok... I looked it over, and already have posted my reaction.

but is he walking towards my location?

Here is a perfect example of a lesson that many people never quite grasp in a RP game setting, it is usually called metagaming.

Meaning, loosely, using knowledge that the player has that the character could not know.

Your character would have no idea of anything other than the room he is in and only a bit of that.

It is a good question because it presents a great lesson.  Many many players use knowledge of things said or done that the character could not know and these had to be adjusted in the game.

Best to learn that now,makes things easier.

For the foreseeable future, your guy is on his own, if he makes it out of the room.

PS
The situation of the setting is dire...it is not me against anyone...it is a dungeon crawl meaning death around every turn, you cross your fingers it is a manageable threat to handle, and then move on.

I have the whole of the ship mapped out with "prizes", "monsters", "traps", and most assuredly "exits"!

For sure your character can survive, depending on choices.

If your character for instance can handle 3 opponents easily and 4 with risk, gets caught in the open surrounded by 10, well, he may not make it to an exit  Smiley

Minding your strengths and weaknesses, watching for clues (I drop them all the time Smiley), and in some cases...getting lucky will find your guy a survivor and winner.

Not familiar with that one...this is most like a convention game referred to as a Dungeon Crawl...not so much story driven, the goal is to survive, collect treasure, and make it out the other side!

Hey guys, both of those last posts were about perfect in context and form.

They expressed your desired action and left room for me to provide a reaction to each action.  This is important as it establishes a give and take that a shared story needs.

Well done!

As for the edits...hmm, I usually only edit if there is a misspelling or syntax issue that catches my editing eye.  In this case I just swapped two adjectives to clear up any confusion for others reading..."rock slide" to "debris slide" as it is in a lab, no rocks lol...""freaks" to "threats" just to alleviate any metagaming as your guy knows nothing of freaks, mutants, etc.  Now that could have been an expressive thought, but for the most part there would not be freaks of any kind in a cyro section of a space station...so I swapped it to prevent any issues.

Not a big deal either way but I liked the post and did not want the two little bits to take away from it, that is all   Cheesy
