I've been playing around with some "marketing" for the Inn by hitting Play-by-Post Google Communities, RPG communities, Facebook groups, etc. I could shoot some recruiting posts out for the game if'n you want.

Also, I like the silver screen moment. I'm all a shivers now.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Well...

If I remember correctly, the breakdown is as follows:

  • Wyatt - Big room second from the cockpit on the starboard side of the ship.

  • Willow - Big room in the middle on the port side of the ship.

  • Jade - Had taken over Sam's room, starboard side closest to the cockpit.

  • Dash - Now on the port side closest to the cockpit.

  • Wolf - Engine room bunk.

  • Asher - port side, furthest from the cockpit.

Does that sound right?

I don't remember the ship being up there before. Did you add that new? I like it. I still have the Google Sheets for Wyatt and Rocinante if you need me to share them with you, Roger.

Day 1, Whitefall - Eagle Eye’s Estate, 1:10 PM PT

Wyatt is plumb full to the brim. Near to bursting, in fact. Food is good planetside and even with Ma’s cooking being able to grab something other than prepak on occasion sits pretty with the captain. Bugs are another thing, however, and the flies on Whitefall are just as annoying as elsewhere.

Leaning forward and resting his elbows on the rough wood of the weather worn table, Wyatt Sung has removed his brown cowboy hat gilded with a darker brown snakeskin hatband holding court to a series of reptile teeth that he’d been told were from an authentic crocodile and was using it to fan flies away. His black hair is slightly curled from the sweat cultivated under the hat and hangs low over his forehead. Sitting in the early afternoon sun does nothing for regulating body temperature.

Things are decent for now. They were good… for about two blinks of an eye. Then jobs became scarce and people started getting as twitchy as the old Sam Dash. That’s when Wyatt had started noticing that the status of “good” was changing rapidly and he couldn’t figure out why. Sniffing reflexively in derision at the thought of the barfight, the athletically built man reflects on the discovery that their reputation has suffered. He knows they need to do something about that, but has yet to figure out what. This job with “Eagle Eye” Sarafina is sent by Bhudda direct but Sung isn’t a fool. He knows that everything comes in threes and they’d landed the job carting bees (thankfully the first in the series of three, not the last lest they’d wind up like Weeping Somnambulist), they’d been paid upfront (that’s two), and they’d made their delivery without being boarded, running into Reavers, or having to deal with Patience (that’s three). Their luck is surely about to turn sour.

Glancing over to his right, Wyatt considers the last six months while he visually contemplates Dash’s interaction with Willow. Sam Dash back in the pilot’s chair is like having a long line of clients waiting to talk with Willow about filling Roc’s cargo bay. Wyatt has to admit that at first he was a little concerned with how Jade and Sam would split duties, but they’d worked it out without any problem he was aware of and the combination has proven to be a blessing. Of course, that was two with the first being Sam’s return to the crew on that fateful day in Serenity Valley. The third in that series was being party to the demise of that gorram amusement park. Then they’d run dry and the series of three began with the bad.

The compression coil’s ring busts. Wolf can’t just use any old part from the junkyard and has to special order it. Then they encounter a slight drift in the starboard yaw that needs another special part to repair. Last is when it’s brought to light that they are considered friends of the Alliance. If it weren’t in Wyatt’s nature to fight through everything in his path, he’d have given up right then, but that’s not his way.

Turning his attention across the table, the captain studies the others sharing their meal. Always three, he muses while wondering what is waiting for them. Glum sishengzi, aren’t you? he could practically hear Eden scolding him and turns his attention to more immediate matters. With Roc sitting at a quarter tank and behind on repairs, he needs to really find something to fill their cargo hold with.

“Eagle Eye,” the half-Asian captain drawls in an attempt to garner their host’s attention. “Thank you, on behalf of me an’ my crew, fer the meal an’ company. Can’t properly say how nice it is t’ get some authentic grub in the belly, but it’s been real shiny.

“I don’ mean t’ sway conversation away from pleasantries, but there ain’t no rest fer the wicked an’... well… Roc’s hold is now bereft o’ yer bees. You wouldn’t know, by chance, o’ no one lookin’ fer passage fer themselves’r some cargo, would ya?”

Direct and to the point, as usual.

Subject: Homecoming

“I surrender to you Colonel.”

Words of defeat. Words that had oft been spoken on these very fields years ago. Perhaps the rank was different then, and the circumstances are most certainly different, but to the captain of Rocinante the words are spectral and hollow despite their small victory.

Wu steps forward towards the prisoner but stops suddenly as she realizes that Wyatt has not lowered his gun. Her eyes widen for a moment, “Captain? He is no good to me dead.”

But the ‘Verse is much better off… Captain Sung waits a few seconds and then replies in a flat and unfeeling voice, “We had a deal.”

“Yes yes yes. The paperwork...” Colonel Wu sounds impatient.

“I get the paperwork,” Wyatt keeps his icy gaze on the broken man lying before him, his brainpan perfectly lined up with the sights on the captain’s Colt, “you get your man.”

The colonel stares at Wyatt for a moment and then transfers her assessing gaze to his steady gun-hand. “Very well.” She replies curtly and waves to one of her bodyguards who immediately steps forward to hand her a document holder. She presents it to Wyatt, “As promised. One full pardon for Morgan Trent, aka. Samuel Dash. A record of expungement of his file. But, I am sure you knew this because as soon as we accessed his file, something deleted the entire record for us.”

Wyatt shakes his head without taking his eyes off of his prisoner, “Don’t know nuthin’ ‘bout that.” He finally lowers his weapon and takes the documents with his left hand.

Wu shrugs, “Must have been fairies then because we could not trace it.”

“Captain Sung.” Javelin breaks in, drawing the steely-eyed man’s attention as Wu’s men move in to take the injured politician into custody, “In order to thank you for the aid you gave the Guild in finding one of our members, we have a present for you. Willow told us what you wanted and, well, the alliance may not be able to find him but we found a way.” He points to an Arrowhead courier ship nearby just as the cargo bay doors begin to open.

Quickly spinning the Colt on his trigger finger, Wyatt hooks the barrel on his holster and returns it to the snug grip of the leather. Focusing on the gangplank Captain Sung tries his best to suppress the anticipation building inside of him. Years have past and people have changed, but family is family and the potential for a reunion is enough to make even the consummately stoic Wyatt Sung draw himself up like he could only remember doing on a couple of occasions in his life. The first was when he was introduced to Eden. Again, when Eden first walked down the aisle and then again when Summer was born.

Coming down the gangway in a pink frilly housecoat barely long enough for modesty is Sam Dash. He is squinting in the light, holding a similar packet of document to what Wyatt has in hand with two beautiful ladies behind him dressed in business suits.

Hardly believing his eyes, Captain Sung steps towards his friend—his brother—stepping on Morningstar’s injured hand as he does, eliciting a scream from the wounded man. For the first time in a long while, the Captain smiles.

Sam Dash doesn’t seem to recognize any of the faces on the folk at first, but when his gaze lites on the figure of the man walking slowly toward him all of his apprehension and twitchiness is erased by the disbelieving laugh that swells in his chest and burst past his lips. “Ta ma de! Ya gotta be strokin’ me!” Both the paperwork and the hem of the too-short housecoat fall from his hands and he is no longer walking slowly down the gangplank, he is running…

“Wyungsung, you shifty sumbitch,” Dash is laughing and maybe crying at the same time when he reaches Wyatt and snatches him up in a crushing bearhug.

Wo Bu Shin Wo Dah Yan Jing!” Sung forces out. For being such a wiry and lanky individual, Dash has a lot of tendon strength. Normally the kind of man to be strongly adverse to such public shows of affection, Wyatt easily forgives this and even returns the expression. “I weren’t expectin’ t’ see ya this soon, puhn yo, but—Renci de Fouzu, put me down! I got’s a reputation an’ such.”

Even after pleading in a respectable manner, Wyatt has to practically pry himself free. “An’ Ni meí shì bà? I don’ normally see this… side… o’ ya.” Stepping back, Captain Sung scratches the back of his neck and looks off to the left. “Where’s yer clothes?”
