Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: Booze breaking


Back in the entrance hall again, the party quickly decided to take the same southern door out to see if they end up in the same wine cellar as before. They spend some time gathering materials to make maps and notes before once more entering the portal.

You find yourself in the wine cellar once more but it is not as you left it. The room has been completely ransacked. The bottles are shattered and the racks have been smashed. Someone or something has completely destroyed the room. It stinks of mead but there is another strong smell in here – like a swamp or rotting vegetation.

Up the stairwell directly across from the portal, you can hear the sound of grunts, guttural voices and bottles smashing. Whatever destroyed this room is up thee, smashing up the next room.

“Not the booze!” Ivan says ruefully.”Like dudes, what did the booze do to you?”

Okay, if you go south and end up in the wine cellar again, what is the plan of action then?

Topic: Make an Evil Core Class!
Subject: Old guy talking


I have never seen the point in playing evil characters. I have, as a DM, had evil parties before and without an exception, all of them have self destructed early in the game. They start killing each other off or won't work as a team and next thing you know - they are dead and blaming me.

Nothing wrong will a bit of railroading at 1st level.

Module is interesting so far. Reminds me of a couple of the TSR 1st level ones.

Bought it. I figure I have paid 16 for modules before and it came with dice. How can you go wrong?

Blue dice. With pre-coloured numbers so you didn't have to buy a crayon either.

Subject: Blueprints - crudely drawn of course


Detailws to follow but the blueprints to the Cruise Liner called "Rim's Dream"


 photo clbp1.jpg

 photo clbp2.jpg

RIM’S DREAM
Engine Room: Located at the bottom of the ship, the engine room is under the command of the Chief Engineer. This area is restricted.

DECK 1: CREW QUARTERS
Crew’s Dorms: The majority of the crew of Rim’s Dream lives on this deck in dorm rooms. The crew’s mess hall and a crew “pub” are located on this deck, as well as a gym and a movie theater. The officers have their own wardrooms on this level. These rooms are quite elegant, as the officers often entertain favored guests among the passengers. Passengers are permitted on this deck, but only if they have an invitation from one of the officers or if they’re escorted by someone on the crew.

DECK 2: MAIN FLOOR
Verbena Restaurant: The largest restaurant aboard ship features elegant fine dining with white tablecloths, crystal, silver, and wait staff in fancy dress. Reserved seating. Tables are assigned when guests board the ship.

Verbena Club: Private bar, members only. Dark wood and low light. Cigars and brandy.

Lucky Lady Casino: The casino is huge, located in the center of the ship, for this is one of the main attractions. To reach the Verbena restaurant, passengers are required to walk through the casino (and thus be tempted to drop some cash). The casino operates twenty-four hours a day and features faro, blackjack, poker, slot machines, pachinko, and mahjong. Rooms for private, high-stakes games are available to high rollers. Security is tight aboard ship and tighter in the casino. Cameras keep watch on players as well as the dealers. No money changes hands in the casino. Players gamble for credits that are exchanged for cash at the Purser’s Office. A tab is extended to those who run a bit short. Losers are not permitted to leave the ship until their gambling debts are paid.

Pioneer Pub: One of the most popular bars on board, it’s meant to resemble a pub on one of the frontier planets. It features cedar plank wood walls, polished bar, and leather cushioned bar stools, with a large mirror behind the bar. Anyone who’s ever been in a real frontier bar would find this pretty darn amusin’.

Grand Lobby: Stunning area where passengers are welcomed aboard. Decorated in gold and red velvet, with sweeping staircases leading to the mezzanine on Deck 3 and a domed ceiling six stories above the floor, the lobby is an impressive sight. Passengers can find room assignments here, book tours, and request information at the reception desk.

Purser’s Office: Located behind the reception desk. The Purser is in charge of all money matters on board ship, including credit transfers. A vault contains large amounts of standard Alliance-issued paper notes. Just how large is a well-guarded secret.

Infirmary: Medical facility staffed by a doctor and two nurses. Four hospital beds. Small operating theater, for use only in case of emergency. Extremely ill patients are transported to the nearest Alliance hospital.

Docking: The docking areas can handle up to four yachts, as well as the ship’s lifeboats that double as shuttles. They don’t handle private shuttles due to security. Once docked, an airlock provides safe passage from the docked vessel to the cruise liner. Security personnel are on hand to check for weapons using an electronic weapons sweep.

The Bijou: Theater featuring live performances at night. High-kicking show girls in feathers and not much else.

Dance Hall: For those who like their dancing a bit more lively than quadrilles in the Grand Ballroom, the Dance Hall features a live band nightly. Popular with the young people.

DECK 3: LOUNGES, FINE DINING, AND SHOPS
Lilac Dining Room: Smaller and more elegant than Verbena. Tables are assigned when passengers board. Only those with penthouse staterooms are permitted to dine here.

Chart Room: Elegant bar that plays Chinese classical music. Walls are decorated with navigational charts.

Champagne Bar: Champagne and champagne cocktails are the only drinks served. Small, dark, romantic.

Grand Lobby Mezzanine: Overlooks the Grand Lobby below. Sweeping staircase leads down to Deck 2. Shops offering designer clothes for men and women, jewelry, sculpture, paintings, and sundries.

The Bijou: Balcony seating for the theater.

Library Bar: Walls are shelves lined with books. Leather chairs and couches. A cozy, quiet place for a drink.

DECKS 4-5: ECONOMY STATEROOMS
Rooms on these levels are small with two beds that can be separated or combined into one. Small toilet with tiny shower. Small closet and chest of drawers. Porthole looks out into the black. Early morning maid service.

DECKS 6-8: MID LEVEL STATEROOMS
These rooms are larger and have a picture window with a stunning view. Couch and coffee table. Two beds that can be separated or combined into one. Larger closet, nicer bathroom. Morning maid service.

DECKS 9-10: LILAC STATEROOMS
Ornate rooms with small living area, separate bedroom. Includes access to Lilac Dining Room. Afternoon maid service and specialty services available when scheduled in advance.

DECK 11: PENTHOUSE SUITE
The Suite is the size of a small estate and has an entry hall, living room, dining area, and separate bedrooms. Comes with butler and access to Lilac Dining Room.

DECK 12: LIDO
This deck’s main attraction is an indoor swimming pool,tennis courts, shuffleboard, and walking track.

Greenleaf Cafeteria: Open twenty-fours a day with food ranging from hot dogs to Peking duck. Dessert buffet at midnight.

Osiris Spa: Relax and enjoy a few hours of pampering. Mud baths, herbal wraps, massages, whirlpools, and steam rooms.

Grand Ballroom: Ballroom is a large room, beautifully decorated with living palm trees and exotic flowers. Tables and chairs surround a dance floor in the center.

Lookout Lounge: Connected to the Grand Ball, separated by the bar area, the lounge at the prow beneath the bridge. Large panoramic windows provide a breathtaking view of the heavens.

Bridge: Located at the top of the ship at its prow, the Bridge has state-of-the art navigational equipment. The First Officer is in charge of navigation and the Bridge. The captain will be on the Bridge during tricky maneuvers or emergencies. The Chief Radio Officer is in charge of communications.

The Bridge area is secured. Door is locked and only those officers and crew with special keycards can enter.

Ody - How are you finding 13th age? I have looked at that one a few times.

I will be heading up to my local game shop this morning to see if they have the Starter Kit.

Subject: yes


This is a pre-done module for the new Firefly RPG system. It is designed for Cortex Plus which I am not switching to, but it is a good setup.

In Rocinante, the next campaign "Who Mourns for Adonis" will be the first that is completely my own design. If it works well, I may write it up.
