Geeze...you had to drop us in the middle of the rat room.


I had figured we would return to the same place in the hall we departed from, so we would be behind the party.


OK, so without an area map I am saying that we appeared at least 15 feet to 20 feet back away from the stairs leading up to the rest of the party in the hall.


We are facing the stairs Valene is in the middle, Ulthok to her right and sirene to her left.


Most of the rats on the floor between us and the stairs.

Topic: Firefly Serenity reboot
Subject: Pops......


Here is the back story of Pops..if roger approves.


 


Jonah "Pops" Hicks is in his late 50s to early 60s. A drummed out Alliance Officer, been out 10 years before the war running his own business shuttling people. He somehow got his hands on one of first Knorr class transport prototypes which he flew through the end of the war.


 


how it happened:


Some nine years before the Unification War, ship designer Contessa Herkeimer set about designing the light cargo transport to supply the needs of Border and Rim freight shippers. The result was the “Knorr.”
Her design was fairly radical for the time, and seems to polarize opinions. Johan had worked there for years and had become the Senior Quality Engineer in Research and development. Although he didn't really support any political side he had to join the Alliance to keep security clearances. He was awarded the rank of Captain which would allow he to fly. As his job he would review designs, check and test prototype crafts to see that they met specifications before turning it over to a test pilot who then push it to it limits.


 


A hot shot young pilot got cute attempting a vertical landing of an early design Knorr and lost control of the craft. It swung toward the observation area. Herkeimer's daughter had been on the tarmac with Johan and the other engineers.  As the thrusters were melting and burning a path toward them the group fled to the hanger.  Jonah scooped up the young girl rushing her to the safety of building. They were able scramble through the door, the girl safely clear of the danger, but as Jonah turned back to pull the door closed the backwash flashed through burning his face and hands. The burns left his face badly scared with pinkish wrinkled skin. (He now wears a full bread to cover the scares.)


 


The pilot was from a wealth core family and eventually the blame was place on a malfunction the Jonah had missed. The family saw to it that Jonah lost his job and his commission. Herkeimer however knew the truth and felt indebted to Jonah for saving his daughter. He helped Jonah move out from the core plants and set up a shuttle business. By spreading the word Jonah became nearly a personal shuttle service many friends and family of the Hereimers. When the war started he turned the business into a diplomatic currier service that got him clearance in and out  of many  planets and situations.


 


Jonah never really support the Alliance, that young hot shot had become a ranking officer and his recklessness had cost the lives of many of his own men. He had also ordered many of the unnessary bombing in Serenity Valley. 


Pops has varied background. He can fly, cook, open locks, fix computer, hack programs and other unexpected skills. He says he was too old to be a Browncoat, but he seems to have been in a lot of places when someone was needed on the QT.

So I sort of see this game as a parallel universe. We may bring in old characters we are familure playing, histories can be the same but has happened on Rec or Destiny in the other games hasnever happened in the verse.


I see this as the crew is coming together for the first time and having to figure out how to get along.

Subject: Jonah "Pops" Hicks...............


Ok, I am thinking of playing a more age appropreate character.  This could be a first officer type but a grumpy one.



Pops is in his late 50s to early 60s. Likely a retired Alliance Officer, been retire 10 years before the war running his own business suttling people. He somehow got his hands on one of first Knorr class transport prototypes which he flew through the end of the war.


Pops has varied background. He can fly, cook, open locks, fix computer, hack programs and other unexpected skills. He says he was too old to be a Browncoat, but he seems to have been in a lot of places when someone was needed on the QT.


It's a start....thinking deeper into him.


=====================


I'm not locked in to this picture..it was just to show an older person. I think Roger used this in another episode so I my find something else. I want him to be "forgettable", someone that seemed to blend into the crowd or someone you want to forget. Could be "ugly as sin". He acts like he doesn't like being called "Pops", but it works to keep him anonymous.


He may seem as if he's had special Alliance training, could be a retired Alliance officer, but there seems to be no records. He may have had a suttle service before the war. During the war he still was a "taxi" for thoses that needed to be places. Folks wondered how he seemed to be ignored by the Alliance, but then he was just a "taxi".


Ok still working on idea to help me work on ideas.

Silent...if you go look at the Destiny game there was female Doc as a npc. It might give you a base to build a character. In our WW2 horror game there was a cool female fighter that might spark some ideas.

This is coming at a good time. My health is getting better and my job stress has really gotten better with my job change. I feel I am starting to be able to story think again. Playing Jon was interesting, it was a challenging stretch for me. You were such a help by giving me good stuff to build on.


I've had two thoughts...I liked the idea a "Jon" character but as the co- captain / pilot. Never really thought of him as the "face" but it could work. An ex- officer / pilot, a new build and background.


The other thought was sort of building a "Doc" framing from our WW2 horror game character. A healer that's not afraid to kill.


I like the two week posting time. Gives me time to over think everything..lol.

The small mage had started to turn to Valene, when he heard Sirnen, “Wait”.


With that the Enchantress accepted the bond; then the two combined the magic of Fairie to save Peri. . slowly all could see a stream of white magical energy start to flow from amulet to body. Then almost without warning Peri’s body start to shake as if having a seizure but quickly those stop leaving Peri breathing and with her essence once more intact. Ulthok's mind started to swirl as the mental presents of his dear companion grew. He sense her once more and now he understood her fear and joy she must have felt when he had died. Few times in his life had joy entered his heart and he savored this feeling now. Then the odd voice of the new small dragon could be heard, “Halfling, she will be ok. She just needs to rest, give her time to do so and she will be herself once more. Now, introductions are in order. I am known by my full name among the elder Faery Dragons as Califragalistic XP’Alidous, but I'm better known as, Frag……."


"Well met and bonded, Frag," Siréne replied, "I am Siréne Ta'alah, heir and daughter of the daughter of Mnemosyne the Faerie Queen." A twinkle danced in the witch's eye and she laughed, "but I will never sit on that proverbial throne. Perhaps you already knew all this, perhaps not?"


Frag's eyes glimmered with a mischeifous light, "Perhaps time will tell."


Facing Ulthok Sirene gently spoke, "She is already returning to us. Much as it fills me with joy to be so close to my home, I fear my return is not yet ordained. There is still work to be done. Come, let us follow the silver path and return to Craggion Core."


Ulthok kelt next to Peri and lifted the amulet and once again hung it around his neck. Then lifted Peri and cradeled her in his arms. Raising he reached out and clasped Valene's hand. "Thank you one and all, let us hurry back I have an apple pie to bake."

I hope I am not offending anyone by my observations. I am just starting to get back in the game. I don't mean to tell anyone how to play their characters. I tend to research stuff, that helps me envision what is going on. I am just sharing what I think I am seeing. 


I have been sort of out of it for a while dealing with minor health issues and meds. I think the meds affected my thinking and writing. I just changed meds last week and it seems I am having more interest in the story again.


If I am over stepping let me know.

It looks to me you get 2 attacks per round with your +5 dagger. So be sure to attempt to poke it twice.


When it is down and the other appears if you can switch to your Great Sword of Wounding you get two attacks and can do more damage per attack. Plus it takes on going damage and can't regenerate from those attacks.


 


I'd you all will know when you've done them in by the rats giving up and fleeing.


and with Tann's Home Brew rules he likely gave the Imps an extra hit dice, maybe even two.


But I'd think he would drop a clue if he'd doulbed the hit die. They should appear nastier to warrent that. so that said they could be 24 to 32 hit points each. So a dagger does 1d4+8 it will take several stabs to do it in.


 


Tann..If the Ranger used both Rapiers did he get two attacks with the +3 and one with the +2 and if the +2 hit didn't stun the Imp so it should be able to vanish??? (my meds must be wareing off and I've started rresearching again.)

Subject: Imp hit points......


Dragonsoul...the Imp is hurt but not likely dead. But if it took enough damage it would leave this plane and return to it's plane. Stay allert and attack any Imp visible. There are three to dispatch..


that said the book says Imps have a max hit points of 18.  (2+2, which means 2d8+2 or max of 16+2=18  )


so maybe yes that Imp has been sent back to its plane.


Tann am I right that its max 18?

Subject: What'cha Go'na do????


Silentone...combat is never simple..in this case the party is being attacked by two types of enemies. So ponder which you feel is the most important for Ray to attack, Imps or rats. Now we saw that Ray was effective with the flame blade against the hord, do you think she needs to continue to protect the other party members while they destroy the Imps or help to destroy the Imp so that the hord will then disperse. The rats are slowed but they are still coming. It will take a couple of more rounds to defeat the Imps.


 


So as I said it isn't simple, but if Ray goes after the Imps she needs to use silver or + magic melee weapons so she would have to release the flame blade spell.


 


The bear could help some with the swarm of rats with three attackes of claw, claw ,bite but itwill  take damage as they swarm over it. Depending on how Tann rolls it the claw hits might take out several rats at a time.


 


What does your gut tell you?

Subject: Sunblade....


Silentone..your sunblade gives you 5 attacks every two rounds. So you can use the flame blade on the data but should switch to the sunblade to attack the Imp. Your first attack would be just one but the next round you get 5 attacks. Jack and slash that nasty Imp.

Nomad, use your +3 sword of wounding. You get 2 attacks against small for 1d10+8. The wounds don't heal and take an additional point damage each round. Use your luck to help hit. Chop those little buggers up. Go back to your character page and read about your sword. This is nearly prefect for killing Imps.

The wills of the fey are strong and faerie is never predictable. Ulthok watched and listened as this new creature refused the commitment that would save Peri's life, just as Sirene refused without the commitment. Ulthok was reeling with the thought of loss, but this newcomer had proposed another option.  If Ulthok would let him take Peri and the amulet back to their home there a circle of like kind could return Peri's essence from the amulet and restore her life. But who was this one, he calls Peri "Princess" and speaks of his love for her.


"Sir, I see that my hope of simple way to restore life to friend is anything but simple...... I cannot let a chance to save my companion go. If you two cannot save her here then even though I should know better I will give you my two most precious things. Just swear to me on your name that your will do everything you can to save Peri."


(assuming the fairie dragon does swear)


"Then make haste so you can return my Peri and my amulet back to me"
