    Sounds like a plan to me.

    I think north is the gas station. We've moved one building west already and will move one more building west as Sean's intended in #1118i.

    How high are the lows of the second-floor windows? Lemus is tall, we should be able to peek at maybe up to 3.5..4 meters from the ground.

    Lemus is probably tall/strong enough to let someone stand on his shoulders if required.

    Let's call it 5 meters high per floor. So 10 meters to get to the roof.

    Is anyone carrying climbing gear?

    I don't think the rangers are carrying anything suitable, and looking at the equipment sheets it doesn't look like Sean is either. We do, however, have a load of rope and a grapnel in the car.

    Assuming this is the same building...
    1. How many stories tall it is?
    2. What is the equivalent throwing distance from Sean's position to the roof of the hotel?
    3. What sort of cover the guy ducks behind? It along the perimeter of that roof?
    4. How many windows on each floor?
    5. Are the windows boarded 100% shut or are they firing holes?
    6. Assuming the hotel is not perfectly square, is the south side the long side or the short side?
    7. Does the hotel seem to be better preserved compared to the rest of the buildings in here (like cared about most of the time since the end)?
    8. Any fire ladders leading up the hotel?
    9. What would be the distance from the nearest backpack assuming Sean wants to keep maximum distance while still observing the building to the north? Can Sean have cover from the backpack(s) while at it?

    1) 3 stories, counting the ground floor.
    2) The roof of the north building is on an higher elevation even on the roof - so about 25 yards?
    3) A waist-high stone "lip" of the roof. Yes, it's the perimeter.
    4) 4 windows on each side of floors 2 and 3. The bottom floor has less windows, none of them are open or even not boarded up.
    5) You're not sure, could be either. That would require a closer look.
    6) The hotel is square. All sides seem pretty equal.
    7) Not really.
    8) You do not see any. Perhaps they were removed?
    9) The backpacks are easily seen from outside the rooms, through the doorways. Going to a window at a far end will get you away enough to avoid danger.

    Lemus watches the windows/doorways of the hotel for movement or commotion as the grenade detonates on the rooftop.

    In case, we’re not on the same page;

    The hotel is burning. It looks like it will continue to burn.
    You guys are just going to watch it burn all the way down?

    Basically, that's Sean's plan. He would watch for anyone trying to escape, but for that to be 100% proof Lemus will have to move to the hotel's NW corner and Sean is not insisting on that (he's fine either way).

    And what about the other players?

    Unaffected by any outside factors, the fire as it is now will take a good hour to burn through all the hotel's floors.

    Lemus isn't in a rush, unless something interrupts the party I think we're fine waiting.

    Seems fine to me too. Richard's not there to be worried about collateral damage and losing access to anything stored away in there, anyway (but OOC it seems fine to let it happen).

    Both doors of the pawn shop have DR 20 and HP 35. Got enough explosives?

    I thought to use HEDPs, those are 7d(10) and we have a number, but now thinking of it, I'm not sure how much hit points a tight jet of molten metal would deal to a door. Technically it's neither impaling not piercing, but you might want to rule some sort of injury tolerance to that for a door-like homogenous object, in which case plese let me know. Also requesting the ruling on hitting the locks and the windows (respectively size mod and DR+HP).

    Is it (tight-beam?) burning or crushing? Homogenous objects have no special resistance to those damage types.

    As for the SM of the lock, I believe it's -5? It can't be much bigger than a padlock.
    The windows are SM -2 at the smallest, no bigger than SM -1. A (slim or small) human could crawl through one, in theory (if they had a good entry angle to climb in through).

    DR+HP for the window? The lock?
    The windows have bars (DR 5 & HP 12 each), the fragile glass is nothing to worry about.
    The lock hardware is DR 12 and HP 14.

    Making any skill rolls for the attempt?

    Waiting for people to comment on the plan and then maybe for Lemus to execute the blasting. Otherwise, Sean will maybe target the lock, but that is not guaranteed to trigger the trap, so not the preferred method of opening.

    South door. Or, failing that, west door. And we might need more than one grenade, depending on how damage rolls (both on direct attack, linked and maybe fragmentation, including against the lock).

    South door is the shop's front.

    And the grenade does enough damage to severely weaken the door...

    I mean Sean has no idea how strong, and how insidious, that chemical is, so would prefer no one to linger downwind of the building emitting it and we will have moved all around S and E, targeting the NE building next. I'll post with the assumption that the chemical is of no issue at those ranges and directions, but Sean would absolutely prefer not to rely on sight and smell when determining whether his people are safe. The morning is fine, we still have lots to do, and no, we haven't yet checked the E building.
