Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: WWMD?


I think Mal would want to meet the Baron and Templeton before making a firm plan. Like in Heart of Gold, he'd want to get a reading on the men he was facing. He would have a sketchy plan at best until then.

Until then, at least you have steaks for dinner.

I have to agree with you on the Accurate attack vs the Power attack. I left it on as it was part of the archetype but accurate does make more sense. If Oskar will let me change it, great but otherwise it is fine as is.

I have to say Ayrn that you have managed to remind me why I normally avoiding being a player instead of a GM. This level of min/max how to make your character has no appeal to me whatsoever.

I do not know the M&M system well and in an online game it is not important to know the rules thoroughly as the GM rolls everything. So if Oskar wants to kill me, I have no control.

I joined this game because I like superheroes. I had a concept for a tough guy who was super strong, near invulnerable and who just wanted to be accepted and noticed for once in his life. I am really looking forward to playing him and I don't care if he is the absolute best that he can be. In fact, that is part of his charm, he is not. I am here for the roleplay, not the rules.

I think it was Gary Gygax who said the greatest danger to D&D was that the GMs would realize they don't need the rules.

"Yeah I hear you, but Destiny’s his ship and we are his crew, so agree or not he has the last word. I tell you this, Asante, if things really go bad for us at least you warned us so thank you at least for that.” Taking her hand JC gave it a tender squeeze. “So ahh want to get changed before we go back to the cafeteria?”

Asante seemed distracted, "Hmmm? Oh. No. I don't think so. I appreciate your situation but You have to believe me, I do want to help you and keep my client happy. I can see that the kidnapping won't work now but there has to be alternatives. Try to get Jon to trust me if you can."

After Asante has been put under

"So Seth. " Stephanie began, "You have heard a lot said at this point. We need to know where you stand on things."

Lilianna grunted, "He serves my dad and is here to make me go through with the wedding."

"That is not true," Seth replied, "I do serve your father and he has been very good to me and my family. However, what he charged me with was your protection and well being up to the point of your wedding. I am not here to force you to do anything."

"I don't believe you."

"I am sorry I have not earned your trust Lilianna. If you remember, it was I who kept my silence when you continued to see Daniel. I took the picture that you so cherish now. It was you who told me that Daniel was not a part of your life anymore and that you were moving on."

"I told you that to throw off my stepfather."

"Well then you were undone by your own deception then because I do not report to your father regularly. He trusts me to watch over you and protect you and has faith in me. I can only hope that one day you may have the same faith."

"You're lying!" Lilianna cried.

"Actually my dear, that is unlikely, " Stephanie said mildly while sipping her coffee. " The drugs that I gave Seth for his back have a peculiar effect on people that makes them more open and honest. However I can see where you might have thought that Seth was the enemy and did not realize it"

"I have no desire to force you into a marriage that you are not willing to be part of, nor are my instructions to carry you there unwilling." Seth said, "However I will not be party to any endeavours that put your father at risk and if you do choose to seek him harm, I will be forced to defend him with my life."

"Oh I am sure that Jon is coming up with the most diplomatic plan that he can right now." Stephanie said plainly. She looked over to the brothers, "Would you two be a dear and pick up Miss Asante her and carry her to her room? She might as well be comfortable as she sleeps."

I had a place to stay set up as the basement of the ACME labs that no one knew about. Now I did that because I thought we'd be starting as independent operators but I guess it could serve as an alternate.

The Hq works well for Mr. Nobody because with his face and size he can't realy go into stores or restaurants. This gives him a place where he can get help and assistance.

But his Cat, Mr. Tibs has to be allowed!!!

I had said that I was moving to a module called "Who Mourns for Adonis" after this but I have found another which has a nice lead into from this adventure, involving returning to Serenity Valley to bury Havelock among the men he left behind.

Mmv will be taking on the role of pilot for Rocinante as Jade Storm.

Sheriff of some backwater pisspot town on the edge of nowhere and whocares is not going to cause a blip in the records of the marshalls.If anything it would mean a chance to add another charge against you.

Feds have a standard operating procedure for dealing with the situation that you are in. Nancy, and the four from the Defiant will stand by you though, plus 72 high ranking passengers.

Subject: a few things


Asher has not shared the combination or access code of the hidey hole gun cabinet. He actually went to great length to keep the project to himself, doing the work himself and on the quiet.

Tann - in game terms there is nothing wrong with wanting a gun collection but just like the real world we live in, there are ramification and consequences. You have a permit to carry a gun if I remember correctly. You went through a process to get the licence to carry that was regulated by the gov't.

In the alliance based world, a pistol or rifle is no big deal. You can get away with it, in most places. However there are weapons that are considered illegal to carry: Machine guns, assault rifles, laser weapons etc etc. You can get a permit to have them, or work in a profession to carry them but they are illegal and if found on your ship will have dire consequences. This is one of the reasons that freighters don't usually arm themselves. You get caught and you are off to Perdition and your ship sold to pay the lawyer who defends you.

Now, as the character Fenris (Wolf) Apollo, you have d6 in guns and d12 in pistols. Yet you never use a pistol, you always go for machine guns and assault rifles. So you are not playing to your characters strengths. You are using a d6 for most of your combat when you could be using a d12. In fact, it was a lucky roll that saves Wolf from extreme injury and instead shot Hartigan first. Wolf also has martial arts, knife fighting and brawling skill and again, you don't use them much.

The other aspect of having a gun collection is that Asher bought all those guns - most of them twice due to Sam. He didn't take them off the men who fought beside him to defend his ship, nor from enemies he had killed. Now that is a moral/alignment/personal choice but it seems icky to me.

Anyway, you chose what your character does, I can only advise you.

After much discussion and planning, The Khord Cleric takes matters in his own hand and leads the party through the east exit of the wine cellar.

Here are two black openings at either end of an apparently empty hallway. Two more black openings face one another halfway down the lengths of the longer walls. In each long wall is also a wooden door. The doors are across from one another and at one end of the length of the hall.

Nothing is in this corridor except you and you came in through the northern entrance.

So you will go to the Weapon room, run through quickly to avoid monsters if you can, go to the Pool area and then to the Dinning room again? That is the plan (not counting for disaster, attacks, disease, traffic?

If sharing the same god was all you needed to be able to communicate, then the word would be a much better place.

You unfortunately cannot communicate beyond pictograms and pointing with the Slaa'ker and tying them up eliminated both as an option.

So at this point I need to know which way you'd like to take.

Subject: More more more



JC and Assante in Exercise Room

“So you knew Jon in the war huh, so what was he really like. I never really knew him though I was part of his unit, never was allowed too close to his ‘inner circle’.”

“Honestly, we really only had the one night and that was all. I wasn’t part of his unit and we just ... well we had a night. When I came abroad and saw him I thought it was a pure stroke of luck and things would be easy but you know the war changed us all. Back then, during that evening we had, he seem strong but venerable and more than a little human. “Asante sighed heavily and JC noticed the flirty mannerisms were gone now. She went on to say, “I meant what I said JC, you are walking into a death trap. The Baron and Templeton have a plan and an agreement between them and they won’t care about collateral damages. They can afford to find a deep hole to put the bodies in and when that happens, you will wish you listened to me.”

(i will leave it to Tann here to fill in conversation)

After an Hour in the Galley

The General comm link opened up across the ship and Grace’s cold and determined voice broadcasted, “If all members of the crew could come to the gallery, I got the info we need. And I mean crew only, guests can stay where they are and stay away from the gallery.”

Stephanie laughed and shook her head, “That’s our Gracie. Subtle as an anchor.”

A few minutes later, the mechanic appeared with printed papers and a dark look in her eyes. Grace groaned under her breath, muttering “I had a reason for wanting to talk without the guests” as she saw Lilianna, the brothers, Seth and Asante in the Galley.

“I know dear.” Stephanie said as she started to rearrange some medical kit, checking a few vials in the light, “But how about you, JC, Catie and Angela go to the Cockpit to talk and I will watch our guests. I am sure that no one will give me any trouble now, will they?” She said sweetly but the look she shot Asante was cold as ice.

(assuming you all go off without much ado)

“There now, “ Stephanie said pleasantly and she put another vial into her hypo-spray. “How are you feeling Seth?”

“Much better Doctor. Thank you.”

“That’s good. Now hold still.” She said and brought the spray gun up but at the last moment she jerked it away from Seth and planed into the neck of Asante.

*PHAFF*

“You fèi fèi pì gu biǎo zǐ!” Asante said and then her eyes rolled in her head and she fell to the ground like a wet sack of rice. Stephanie nudged the fallen woman with her foot and then put the hypo-spray away. “There now. I feel a whole lot better. Anyone feel like more tea? Maybe we can make some more pancakes too – I’m starved.”

Lilianna and the Brothers all looked at Asante on the floor and then to each other.

“Remind me not to cross you Doc.” AJ said.

“Yes. I’d advise that too.” Stephanie said with a smile.

After an Hour in the Cockpit

Everyone arrived on the Bridge and spread out so that everyone could see each other. Grace went over to the controls and activated the camera monitor and synced it to the Galley. She did that just in time to see Stephanie slip a “mickie” of something into Asante and watch her fall to the floor.

“Whoa.” Tess said with a whistle, “Remind me not to cross the Doc.”

“Alright so the cruise ships info was easy to find but that is going to be the only easy part. While there are multiple entrances, some being the more impractical than others, we are going to have to go to this one,” Grace pointed to the Docking on the map, “Since we have to deliver Lilianna and the Baron will be waiting for us there. At that point, it will be up to us to come up with excuses why we want to get on the ship so we can help Juliet over there.” Grace says passing out the brochure and papers on the cruise liner. “Staying on the ship will be of little use for us. Ever since a group of space pirates attacked the Star of Sihnon to steal some sort of violin, security has been beefed up on all cruise ships. Ships have to dock via airlocks that are screened for all weapons, explosives and other dangerous items. Security has a presence at all air locks. Ships are locked on to cruise liners by grav clamps and will not be released without permission. Security systems on cruise liners are now locked systems and do not access the cortex so I can’t hack it through the cortex. It would be better for us to get on the ship with some sort excuse that the Baron isn’t going to find suspicious, like Stephanie wanting to bring a sick patient to the Infirmary or something similar.” Grace shrugged her shoulders, “If anyone has got a good excuse why they should go on the ship or if any names look familiar among the passengers, now is the time to be mentioning it.”
