OOC: Something ELSE to consider is that C4 batches have chemical and spectrographic tracers irrevocably mixed with the explosive. If you bother to look, the AOE is littered with microscopic tags that ID the manufacturer and the batch number. C4 is sold in lots, and VERY carefully tracked. If you bought it, we know where. If you stole it, we also know where.
OOC: C4 is also not able to be made in conditions that don't involve big heavy machinery and refined chemicals, mandating that you didn't make it yourself. So the ID failsafes had to be in there to start with.
OOC: The wires would be incinerated, this is true. The scale would take a forensics expert to ID, but would be readily identifyable as ground-zero once it was put back together. It would be covered with the ID failsafes mentioned above.
OOC: TFS: Since you have Patton's soul, you need to have a defined location. If it was just you it wouldn't matter so much, but since you've got a hostage we need some kind of chance to rescue him... Something that going into the amorphous unknown denies us.
((ooc: Tanasha is intirely right. My C-4 is trace-able. And yes it would leave a massive chemical residue. C-4 is more like a nuke than a stick of dynamite. It's made with persicion and indutrial refinement. It is trackable do to that fact. I agree with Tanasha but didn't mention that in the previous post. I chose not to because I didn't want to tell you how to catch me. *Smiles at Tanasha* Looks like you know how to do it now.))
