I think it's perfectly understandable that a guy who's 4'11" would look like an easy mark, unless he was built literally like The Hulk- guys at the gym under 5'6" who roid up until they're practically bursting still get joked about. 4'11" is TINY, even if you're well-built- those "big arms" in the picture would be half the size of those of a 6'3" superhero with the same proportions. And really, that's how Ken wants to play his character, and it's his idea. The rest of the team seems willing to move forward with it (I think you're the only one who's disagreed), so I say we go for it, and the debate is unnecessary. Honestly, I don't think a super-elaborate plan is needed. I left many things vague in the "Mission Statement" on purpose, allowing for some ambiguity- the characters are walking into the unknown.

It's okay if K'lara disagrees, but given as how she's an alien with presumably little knowledge of Earth culture, her "say"is the dealings of Earth street gangs isn't quite as important as some of the other guys.

Just remember the "No criticizing how others are roleplaying" rule, please. So let's just drop it and move on to the next "scene"- the Hillbillies territory!

Do we have a pilot for the Legion of Light Air Cruiser?

Interestingly, only one character has Vehicles, Mako, which is restricted to water vehicles. Also, no-one has Jack-of-all-Trades or Beginner's Luck to do it untrained.

So if we do, it'll have to be an NPC pilot.

That said, approaching anywhere near the territory by air cruiser seems a fast way to blow cover. A ground transport would be more subtle and we can jump out blocks away and try to stealth in, or whatever it is the rest of us are doing while those four wander in.

Harry, Adrien, Todd, and Maia in civvies going in first, maybe with a Blending Dr. Mercury following them.

The rest of us show up obvious-like in the flier?

The plan was to draw the gang out by trying to present themselves as "easy marks". Supers flying around overhead is going to run counter to that plan.

The idea was for the rest to be near enough to jump in of things go sideways. What was not really discussed was the how we accomplish the not being seen unless we're needed. Not all of us are stealthy. Some can be far away and get there quick on once radios, others have a much more limited range of response.

Sawyer has a good perception and his visor lets him not take penalties until 1000ft away, where as the normal is a -1 per 10ft. If we set up a decent amount away they will have a hard time spotting us. If (when) anything goes down Silver Witch creates a platform for the non-fliers and we rush over there in no time.

Psistrike, Silver Witch is the only way Galactica and Semilla are going to be any kind of mobile over a long range which is kind of what the plan apparently calls for.

Another Perception check is fairly redundant, but I don't use Coyote Code very often so I'd better get used to it now.

Meh. We can be waiting to be flown in by the Air transport and drop out of the plane when/where needed. Low enough and K'lara's leaping 5 and Semilla's swinging should mitigate the fall distance. Or if the civvies go unmolested we can drop out in front of the former Hillbillies' structure and Galactica could challenge like she wants. (Much to Rosa's roleplayed horror).

So anyone who's out on foot, let me know. The truck driving into the area obviously drew some notice.

If nothing else, the lack of group cohesion, how everyone is more or less just doing whatever to loosely follow the plan just speaks to how inexperienced everyone is, at being heroes and being a team

Sawyer gave out his location so the back up team could meet up with him.
