Encounter Conditions

None

Initial Text

Deep in the garage, you find a car. The fact that it's sitting here, broken down and half-smashed just confirms that this place isn't really used anymore.

Still, this used to be a pretty nice part of town, so there might be something valuable in there.

  1. Steal some parts - gain 1 of: polysteel, scorched glass shards, steel ingot, frayed cable, microcapacitor (more with salvaging tools, and one time only a large motor), or if Etheric, fight a Standing Car
  2. Search the interior - gain 1-2 of battered cred chip, broken taser, outdated PDA, scorched glass shards, smudged Idoru
  3. Sit to meditate - Learn Rushing Image technique, heal 20-30 HP (With Poltergeist Spark, while Etheric)
  4. Vandalize it - gain 20 Echoing Garage, 2 XP Will
  5. Leave it be - walk away

Choice Text and Results

Steal some parts

You pick at the car, pulling a tiny bit of material free with your hands.

You found: 1? of frayed cable, microcapacitor

You've earned 2 XP in Strength

Or, sometimes with salvaging tools?

You pick at the car, pulling bits of material free. Your best find is probably the intact motor. It won't do much without a lot more power than you'd get out of normal batteries, but it's pretty cool.

You found: large motor

You found: 2? of polysteel, scorched glass shards, steel ingot

Or, after getting a large motor, with salvaging tools?:

You pick at the car, pulling bits of material free. Someone already removed the motor, but you manage to pull out what remains of the old electronics.

You found: 3? of microcapacitor, polysteel

Or, if Etheric:

You start prying at the ruined car and it responds with a shriek, unfolding and standing until it towers over you.

(Fight Standing Car)

Search the interior

You gingerly reach through a broken window, grabbing anything that seems intact.

You found: 1-2 of battered cred chip, broken taser, outdated PDA, scorched glass shards, smudged Idoru

You've earned 2 XP in Reflexes

Vandalize it

You smash the car again and again, relieving your rage as breaking glass and creaking metal echo through the garage.

You've gained 10 duration of Echoing Garage.

You've earned 2 XP in Will

Or, if Etheric:

You start scratching at the ruined car and it responds with a shriek, unfolding and standing until it towers over you. The broken windows interlace and pull apart like hungry mouths.

(Fight Standing Car)

Sit to meditate

You carefully climb onto the roof of the car, settling into a familiar position of meditation.

You regain 20-30 hit points!

You learned a new Technique: Rushing Image

Leave it be

Yeah, no point abusing the poor thing anymore. It's obviously gone through enough already.

(Walk Away)
