No worries,

I need an Knowledge: Technology (so, intelligence check) from both of you, as you look over the 'map'.

I've updated the link, by the way, so it should actually point to the map now.

It is four ability dice. 4eA on Orokos. The system can be difficult at first.

The first thing that comes to my mind (maybe not Comenzar's) is that the picture was taken or drawn from a specific location in space. Is it possible to determine the retaliative position of the ship or object from which the objects in the map were viewed. Perhaps not immediately but once we identify the system? Additional, since the orbits of the various objects vary, is it possible to calculate the approximate time the image was taken by determining how long ago they would align in that pattern. (or as close to what we can guesstimate that pattern is)

Those that don't see value simply lack imagination :P

One more. Using the stars in the background is it possible to determine which side of the planet we are looking at. That may be important.

Both explorers realize that the thick, paper-like substance the 'map' is printed on is datapaper. Popular with those who need to manage a lot of information, the displayed "picture" change between any number of things. Oddly enough, one doesn't appear to have the controls you'd normally expect. (Think a flexible, preloaded e-reader) {1 success}

Comenzar realizes this particular type is designed to fit into an external control frame, which is likely to be mounted somewhere. {3 successes}

The displayed planetary allignment is impossible (1 advantage) The stars in the background of the picture are stylized, containing several important constellations from Sol. In fact, they create several protectant symbols against corruption. It suggests someone was worried about the potentially corrupting effects of information stored on this device. (5 advantage)

Just letting you all know I'm still alive. Currently not much for Ol' Jake to get up to, so I'm happy to lurk for now

I'm entering my busy period of travel so will be in and out over the next few months. Please feel free to take liberties with Comenzar to keep the game moving. At this point he is waiting to hear back about what was on the data paper before ordering the jump be made.

no you didnt kill this. I am not sure where to take it but have also been extremly bussy. Quicksilver psoted in the AFK thread that she has been extremly bussy also so i think it is just a seasonal slump. I should be back up and goign full speed, hopefully, by the end of this weekend.

I'm up and active but my character has nothing to do with the current scene. I have had no word from quicksilver. A few of the other games are picking up again but they all use the FFG star wars systems which I believe you said you were not familiar with. If you are interested in any of them I know there are openings.

Quicksilver has been a very consistent member of this board and it is unlike her to go this long without getting on.

well. I'm more familiar with it now, still a bit uncertain about some of the advancement elements. but 40k is really my thing. I'll probably take another look.

Just thought I'd give folks here a heads-up that I sent an email to Quicksilver's personal email address Tuesday morning (Feb. 28). The message did not bounce, and she has not responded.
