Ninja Burger PBP Episode 21 - 11/06/06
Dice roll summary:
Whutaguy/Skipito (Deliverator): 12 = 3
Arvo/Toru (Driver): 30 = 9
Zipdrive/Kitaro (Chef): 0
Lorthyne/Bozuko (Spotter): 08 = 10
Wroe/Rin (Navigator): 38 = 7
Rin manages to change the song to something less Deathy and more Metaly, and settles on some Motley Crue, which seems to appease the bikers in the crowd somewhat. Meanwhile, Toru ignores the potential threat to his life and continues on in the face of danger, in sort of a ninja way (though some might argue that a real ninja would scurry off or throw a smoke bomb or something). He and Rin coordinate in the back of the van and come up with a stash of ninja-face shaped balloons which, while not colorful, are certainly appealing in their own way. The two of them manage to fill a bunch of balloons with helium, and just in time -- the big guy arrives just in time for Toru to hand him a balloon. Looking somewhat uncertain (and convinced with a little smooth talking), he spurts out something like "don't let it happen again" and wanders back to give the balloon to his insulted girlfriend.
Since no trouble arises, Bozuko's got time to keep an eye on the overall picture, which is why he notices that Skipito is about to make his way onto the fire escape. Bozuko's keen eyes spot a sign on the fire escape that reads "Danger. In case of fire, use elevator." It sort of reminds him of an event that just occurred less than an hour ago, in the Ninja Burger training room. The word "imminent collapse" comes to mind.
Unfortunately, Skipito doesn't seem to notice, and drops off the wires and onto the fire escape (bad roll, sorry!). He looks around for entrances to the building and sees several open windows, noting that there are 4 apartments on each floor. "Any progress on locahhhhhhhh!" he says, as the fire escape begins to give way beneath him. Bozuko manages to shout a warning in the nick of time, giving Skipito a chance to pull something out of his... wherever it is that ninja pull things out of.
