The ul-mor depart on their lopers heading west and the group surveys what is before them. To the west and south is the icy desert. To the north and east is a plain of tall grasses that seem to thrive in the bitter cold and bend in the frigid wind that is currently blowing out of the northeast.
Ciara steps forward to examine the grass and is surprised to find that the blades are very sharp. The skeinsuits that most of the group are wearing will help but will certainly get sliced to ribbons eventually. She reports her findings to the rest of the group and they consider how best to navigate this terrain.

Let me know your thoughts on how you want to proceed. If you run out of ideas, feel free to send an INT roll for some GM assistance.

MYKEL: examines the grass and the blades. “What we need is some way to push the blades out of the way as we walk, or to walk on something that will shield us from the blades.” He pauses for a moment, struggling to remember lessons on military campaigns in difficult terrain. There was something …. “Ah! I remember now! Snowshoes! OK, maybe not “snow” shoes, but the idea of walking on boards or such that will keep the grass blades away from us just might work.”

ALYSON: Alyson says,"This is not good. Unless we cut a path though the grass?"

S'LCH: " If we can find a method to deal with the grass, we can have the robot use it to trail blaze." the vrusk offers.

ALYSON: Alyson asks,"Do we need to add anything to it just to turn it into a grass killing machine."

CARTER: Do we happen to have any materials where we could create a sled?

CARTER (GM): Do i need to roll on "Making Items & Structures?"

The technicians in the group go through the equipment they have available to them to see if they can fashion a set of wide "shoes" that can be worn by the carry-all bot to blaze a path for the rest of the group.

GM: I need Gadgetry rolls for those with Technician skill (Carter, Jim and Alzarix). The roll will be at -10 due to a sparse supply of raw materials.
