So I had communications with Skyentist last night (and topper too). In the interest of knowledge collection, dumping said convos now.
First, a PM from Topper to myself and Skyentist (why he chose us was a topic that Skyentist and I had no answer to):
Then, the convo with Skyentist:
I made them into pastebin dumps because it would take up a lot of room on the page for no reason. Anyways, info is all there. Heres what the Crew Quarters did do, which we found to be mostly useless:
You have spent the night repairing the crew quarters.
Nightly: Every night you may choose to bug the
quarters of an individual. In the morning you will receive a list of
everyone who interacted with the bugged room.
Desperate: You may lock a room, preventing anyone from entering or exiting the
room for the night. However the quarters will be damaged and must be
repaired again afterwards.
Sorry I realise now that the wording of the opening post isa bit
misleading, it's more like you're bugging the individual than bugging
the room (sometimes I get a bit wrapped up in trying to make things fit
the story ).
Last time I ran this system the players grilled me and I posted this much more specific set of rules:
You target an individual, the resulting list will include:
All people who vote the same way as your target on any system
All people repairing a system alongside your target
People who your target targets
If you target controls a system which targets other systems, all people on the targeted system
All traitors who voted for your target
Let's say you target Nos_Fi tonight, you get a list something like this:
All the CQ crew who vote the same way as Nos_Fi - obviously only applies on nights when they're not repairing the system
All of the CQ crew because they're repairing tonight
If Nos_Fi has a role which targets people (e.g. he's a guardian angel, or he's a wolf), the name of his target
CQ targets people, so Nos_Fi would be on the list
Traitor names (e.g. Cise, he's always a wolf)
We tried to use the crew quarters on myserlf last night, and this was the result:
The vote was for LyskTrevise, the bug detected these people:
(p.s. martin, is it okay to direct quote posts like that from you in the future? i dont want to break the rules)
As you can see all of the Crew Quarters repair team is listed.
Also: the info about propulsion was already disseminated to CQ by Skyentist, and I put it in the pastebins above, but if someone wants to just double down on it to make sure we have everything?
