Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Destiny Calls........

Jonah had his paperwork in hand and was rounding up the passengers assigned to him. With the wat over he’d been able to make some money doing pick and delivery of POWs being released and returned to the some of the core planets. They’d docked the Nora Lee to the Victorious. Jonah had left Nathen and Elum to prepare while he reported in to collect his passengers. 

Johan had come to the holding room where two men waited. A tall muscular bald guy paced like a caged animal and slightly older fellow with dark hair and a slight oriental just stood there calmly resigned to the events. Unfolding the passage documents he was about to address the men when alarms starts clanging, the ship shook with the sounds of missile hits. Explosions followed. People running.  An alliance guard came to the door and opened it quickly “To the life pods!” He said firmly, “Now! Quick quick quick! We are under attack!” Jonah starred as the boat rocked from the impacts. He couldn’t seem to get moving but he knew he needed to get to the Nora Lee. Another explosion rocked, that was it the three men ran into the gangway. Jonah headed down the way but the Nora Lee was at the aft end and he could see ahead the passage was blocked with debris. Jonah could only hope Nathen would not wait for him and cut her loose. 

The three of them made it into a life pod; it seals itself and launches. They watch as they spiral away from the burning ship. Small ships black and diamond shaped ships fly past, launching more missiles. The “Victorious” breaks up into pieces. Jonah’s knees buckle as he sees his freighter is attached to it.

The big guy found a basic tools kit and a manual for Blue Sun Life Pods XL3’s.  He quickly discovered they were in a Blue Sun Life Pod XL6. “These aren’t going to help.” Jonah looked at him,”Don’t worry these were made from the same basic model.” He immediately starts opening panels and looking around, “Gonna kill the beacon. Don’t want them xxx homing in on it.” Turning Johan, “Pops can you fly this thing and get us the h*** out here?”

The big guys words brought his attention back, “It Johan, not Pops”, the big guy just shrugged. 

Steeling himself, he went to the flight controls and found they were locked out. “I can figure out how to get these working.” The big guy looked at him raising an eyebrow, “Ok Pops ….and you can call me Wolf”.

 The other man looked up, “I’m Wyatt since we do not have a lot of fuel, we should drift for a time and then use the thrusters judiciously to try to get to a shipping area where we could reactivate the beacon.” 

The men talked over the next several days, Jonah told them about Nora Lee. He told them of the events and how he’d got her from his former employer. He told them of his time serving both sides during the war as a diplomatic courier and that he was neutral. Wolf seemed to get a kick out keep calling him Pops and after a while Jonah stopped objecting, after all he was old to be his Pops.

After 5 days, they got a ping on the proximity detector. Something was out there.

Wyatt made the decision to activate the beacon and take your chances. But nothing happened. Jonah moved the pod around and soon found the ship. It was a derelict floating in space. Looked like a transport but it was painted black and very stylish. There were no signs of life on the ship and no power signatures – it seemed completely dead.

The Life pod was not going to last forever but the ship was dead in the black. Jonah wanted to stay with the pod, Wolf wanted to try the ship. Wyatt again made the final decision to see if they could get in to the ship and see what was salvageable.

The cargo bay had to be manually opened through an outer hatch which Wolf did via the EVA suit. Once inside, Wyatt and Pops took the two HD suits and explored the ship, short distances at first. The cargo bay looked like it had been through a battle. It did not take long to realize that someone had lined the walls of the Bay with claymore mines and then there were all set off. Not much left inside.

The ship had no dead aboard, but there was definitely a battle here before. Most of the ship was shot up from within, or destroyed by an explosive force. The only places intact were the cockpit and engineering. You found another HD EVA suit and more oxygen tanks in a locker. Fenris checked the engines and found to his surprise that they were operational. There was some damage, enough to stop them but he could at least it spinning.

The ship was like nothing Jonah had worked on during his years in R&D, but...well he just felt he knew more... something… he he noticed things.

The Speed Gauge went to 13. Most transports can reach a hard burn of 6, maybe 7.

The ship’s wiring had been hand rolled with anti-magnetic tape. Every sign piece of wiring.

There was a backup fusion battery that drew power from the engine. It was basic put in to restart the ship and life support if ever hit by an EMP attack.

The Pulse beacon had seven setting (Seven different call numbers spots). Pulse beacons are only made to hold one. However all the numbers in the array were wiped clean.

So he fixed the ship as best he could, keep life support and heat to the cockpit and engine room only. It was tight, but not as tight the life pods.  Jonah watched Wyatt take charge and he knew this was the new captain of this ship. He knew he could trust him and when he slipped and called Pops Jonah just smiled and nodded. Johan knew he’d settle up proper with Nathen and Elum’s kin, but this was his new ship and his new crew.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A little back story...Ulthok, Valene and Peri....

Leaving the carnage behind Ulthok and Valene made their way down the hall to the rooms. The moon shining bright through the window as the two entered Ulthok’s room. Valene lay the sleeping Peri gently on the bed then removed her backpack. Ulthok closed the curtains darkening the room. Pausing he smiled as he stood and listen the soft rhythmic breathing of the small Fairie Dragon. He could sense the peacefulness of whatever dreams Peri may have been having.

Valene wiped out the metal pie pan that Peri used as her bed. The Halfling took one her silk scarves and laid it in the pan. Gently lifting Peri she placed her in the small round bed. Peri stirred slightly, sniffed the scent of Valene on the silk and seemed to purr contentedly.

Ulthok watched from the window, these were the two creatures that owned his heart and were now the closest thing he had to family. He crossed the and place a kiss on Valene’s cheek, “I am off to the kitchen, our little girl there will be in need of nourishment when she awakes and it has been a while since I have made her an apple pie… You should get some rest too. Perhaps I will order a bath sent up.” Valene giggled, “If you hurry perhaps the water will still be warm when you return.”

When Ulthok entered the kitchen the head cook and her girls had seemed to be waiting on him. “Master Ulthok we heard of what happened to Peri, ours hearts were broken for she was a joy to have sneaking in for treat when you were here before. “ They looked at him with anticipation, “Ah..well with the help of strong Fey magic I am happy to say she has been recovered and is resting. I have come to prepare her favorite apple pie for when she awakes.” The kitchen crew nearly danced with joy, “Oh Sir let us prepare it for you, we so missed her and it would our honor and pleasure.” The Halfling looked up at them and bowed graciously, “She would truly enjoy that…you are so much better at baking that then I..yes please do.…Looking around, “ Would it be too late to have hot bath delivered to Lady Valene’s room? This ordeal has been wearing on her and bit luxury would be so nice for her mind and body.”

“ Ah.. good sir there is a measure hot water available and I will have it and tub delivered immediately, you set yourself there at the table and my girls will fetch you some ale and a morsel of food while things are made ready.” With a smile and a wink.” I’ll prepare a small basket that you can deliver so the Lady may also enjoy a bit of wine and cheese as she soaks.”

Ulthok lifted himself onto the chair and there quickly was delivered a flagon of prime ale and a plate of sliced cheese, meat and bread. It was only then that he realized just how hungry he was. Finishing the ale, and a decent portion of the platter, a covered basket was brought to the table. “There you go good sure the Lady is well served…I placed a small vial of lavender in there too for the bath water, it should aid in comforting and relaxing her mind and spirit.” As the kitchen girls giggled the cook shooed then back to their chores.

Climbing down Ulthok took the basket, bowed slightly and headed to Valene’s room. As he passed the serving men one stopped, “Master Ulthok..Lady Valene has us place the bath in your room. She said she want to keep watch on the little fairie dragon….have a pleasant evening sir.” The men discreetly returned to the other chores.

Knocking lightly before he entered Ulthok opened the door a bit and slipped into the room. Candles had been lit giving a warm glow to the room. Valene had just slid into the tub. A light steam rose from water as she lay there, eyes closed, and sighed. Ulthok placed the basket on small table he’d moved next to the tub. Opening it he found the vial and poured fragrant oil into the water. The sweet floral aroma caressed the fair Halfling maid. Valene breathed deeply, her breasts rising to the water’s surface as she arched her neck.

Next was the wine, a fine red liquid that he poured into a crystal glass. Leaning over the edge of the bath  

he handed it to Valene, “For the Lady, compliments of the chef. As Valene reached for the glass Ulthok smile as he gazed at her form in the clear water. It had seem to be ages since they spent time together.

Returning to the basket he remove the plate of cheese and cut it in thin slices. Drawing chair to the tub he sat himself next to her shoulder and proceeded to feed the morsels to the lady. Valene moaned with delight. There for the rest of the evening they enjoyed the simple pleasures.

There were stories among the staff that later, when the pie was delivered outside the room, that laughing and splashing could be heard coming from the room.

Subject: Old Story....

I like the way Alacrity took stuff from the old Destiny and rolled it in the new. Part of the old story the mechanic Grace was very twichy and she warpped all the wiring after we had been hit by anEMP attack. She also lined the ship with the claymores to stop anyone from taking the ship. Good memories. But that has nothing to do with us now.

Subject: Jonah and Wolf.......

Going to work with Albert a bit on the first posts. I'm sharing some ideas with him that will roll from their time in the escape to getting the found ship working. Jonah has background in the systems of crafts, he is not a mechanic but knows a lot about what makes things work, he just does have the hands on skill. Jonah and Wolf will have a running relationship. It will be a bit gruff. Jonah is older and can be blunt about fixing things. Wolf can be a bit stubborn when told what he should do. So let that be the teaser.

Dragon..your character can do what even you want them to do. They will just have to live with what happens. That is what makes roll playing. Sometimes good things happen sometimes bad things happen. We just deal with it.


BTW..fired up the old XP laptop, Ijust don't have my most recent posting stuff on it. I'll have to rebuild from what I actually posted.

No problem, the laptop I switched to is now acting up. It was older, but free. It run Win 7, my older - older laptop still runs XP. For some reason the Windows Help screen keep popping up and the touch pad quit working.

So it is off to the basement desk top for a while.

Topic: The Trilogy War

As the spell gathered Ulthok watched Cor attack empty space. But the result was one dead Imp and the gathering of rats started to disperse. Whatever had been going on was now over.  He feel the tension ease as Sirene and Valene also closed their spells. The rats scattered and the blade barrier vanished. The three gathered themselve and move toward the stairs. Cor and Arandur examined the Imp looking at at a mark on it's wing.

'The battle was well fought, our enemies have been vanquished.' Ulthok had moved close enough to see the mark. 'What say you of the mysterious sigil we saw marked upon the imps?' Arandur asked ,"Do you think it could be the mark of the Dragon Goddess herself?'

Ulthok looked at the but it didn't look like a mark of the Dragon Goddess, but Cor spoke first. "Aye lad, I also wonder if it is the sigal is that of the dragon goddess.  If it is she has broken the agreement in my eyes for a minion of hers attacked us.  Perhaps the good dragon can identify the sigil." 

Once again before he could speak Sirene spoke what he was thinking. “This is not the work of Kakaranatha,” Siréne began. “Hear my words and know them to be true. The Dragon Goddess might be treacherous and more dangerous than any creature we have ever faced, but she is not our enemy. Where there is light there must be shadow. We would not know the day without the night. That is the balance, and it is the will of the cosmos. It cannot be denied.......Our quest has not changed, There is still the sword and the war we have been fighting. Have we forgotten all that brought us to Craggion Core or the flying castle and the lich queen we faced before our chronal jaunt? If you wish to bring the symbol to Majestic, then let us do so. Knowledge will only help us. However, we must return to our true quest for we have already strayed too long.”

Nodding his agreement, "There are others out there that know the power of the sword. We can't assume it is only one enemy. There has been plenty of chances for the sword to have been taken by the Goddess, I don't feel she would have waited for us to return to make her you need to help clean up this mess and prepare to continue our quest. I have an apple pie to bake."

Ulthok slipped away to his room where he and Valene set Peri in her favorite pie tin where she slept as if nothing had happened.

Subject: Valene.............

I have beenplaying Valene for a while. We wanted to keep her character in the game so instead of Tann running her as an NPC I told him I'd run her until we found someone willing to take over. Because Ulthok and Valene have had an intimate relationship we thought it would make sense. Recently one the ladies that played Valene decided to end the relationship. so Ulthok had a broken heartfor a while. Then she left the game things warmed up a little. I just need to my A** in gear and start posting. Eight years ago I was motivated and really kept up. Life has beat me down a bit, but I can't give up.   GAME ON!!!!!!!

Not ignoting anyone..been a tough week. Mom (94) went into ER Monday for severe cough, thought it was going to be pneumonia.They said it was bronchitis   Wednesday took for a followup and she had panic issues, so I've not been in much of a story mood. I will catch up this weekend.

I'll have Ulthok answer and move the Peri thing forward. Will need to have Ulthok study and reset his spells. Same for Valene.

This sounds just right for Pops, he was never a fighter on either side. He only had Allience rank to clear security and test / check fly experimental crafts. He found that a pump shotgun pointed in a unrulely person's direction was often enough to make them go away. Carrying a pistol on his side made him less of an easy target, but when gun play starts Pops often is the last to join in, just don't like it. He wouldrather try to talk his way out.

Ok our bad...we need to go to the player's handbook that was provided and use it for gear and weapons.

I goofed and just looked at old character sheets instead of doing as we were told to use the book.

As much as it was cool to have the super duper stuff we need to just get the regular stuff.


Pops has two regular pistols and a pump shot gum. Standard holster.
