Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Yes

i will update the character sheet for Rocinante and send you a new spreadsheet. You basically have a firefly mr 3.5 now. New powerplNt and engines in the smaller body of a mr 3. While you are nowhere near the speed of Destiny, it will have more pep with better mileage

Subject: Change time casting time

I am pretty sure we established how long it takes Ody to change. So it is the same as casting time, it will get added to initiative so it depends on the roll.

Subject: well

Consider the second adventure of CWWLLO started in 2006, the first one was probably a good two years of playing so 2003 or so.

Plus your character gets to live to the end of the module, unless the other players kill him first.

Robert has such good ideas.

Great posts. I won't be posting again until monday or Tuesday to let everyone get their chance to post.

I will be posting today. I have had some business to attend to at RL and the next room requires some detail of description.

Maybe one day I will watch a game.

Highly unlikely but stranger things have happened.

Subject: Wish upon a falling elf

the problem ( or challenge in business speak) here is that the elf boys are not falling. They have been thrown. So you are trying to do the equivalent of catching a cinder block throw from a small catapult off a tall building at your head. You may be able to do it, but it won't be pretty. Spells are great but it is a matter of time. If the elves hit at the 2nd segment and the spell takes three secs, well you get the picture.

Because this is a fantasy based game I will give people a chance to catch. If you succeed, depending on how well you do you may get away with minimal damage. You can not dampen inertia.

The flyers have a Better chance to save because their magic is active and designed with carrying burdens in mind. Even then, Arien or Lun could be pushed into the Rock cliff and take some damage.

It is a risk. But you might save them and you can heal later.

Subject: none of which are anime actually

I have said that you can attempt to catch a elf if you want but you will have to roll for it and there is a chance you will take damage from the impact. You are basically trying to catch a body throw at high velocity over 80 feet.

Subject: animate

Animate objects is a 9 seg casting time and the animated objects do not move very fast. You could do it but not sure it would benefit you much.'

For the record, I wasn't even thinking about anal invaders/tentacle sex before Robert said anything.

Subject: Arien

It's time to prove to your friends that you're worth a damn. Sometimes that means dying, sometimes it means catching a thrown elf while evil tentacles come at you all wanting to be your personal Proctologist.

Posted on 2014-11-19 at 10:08:41.

Subject: Portable Holes

I would say your chance of success catching an elf is better than to try and open up a portable hole and get it into a position to catch elves. Remember you don't have maneuverability with levitate.

Posted on 2014-11-19 at 09:46:57.

Subject: well

I am sure that in reality it is not possible to catch a projectile in flight, this is a fantasy game so K could run and leap of the bridge to attempt to catch one. He'd probably take damage though.

You can try to walk away from the tentacles but you may ask yourself how did the bodies get up there in the first place if they couldn't reach down?

Anime tentacles! I wasn't even thinking about that Robert, until now ....

Posted on 2014-11-19 at 08:52:08.

Subject: suspension

Nothing is impossible! If you wish to attempt say, drop in levitation to move quickly and reactivate to save falling Hunter, I would give you a chance. If you fail then you miss and hunter goes splat. I would say that is hard (14 ON D20) with a dex bonus used.

Ground combatants can reach tentacles with missile weapons only at this point.

Posted on 2014-11-18 at 14:25:46.

Subject: clarify

Hunters are being thrown at the party by the tentacles. So they may not be dead right now, they soon will be hitting the ground at high speed.

Feather fall won't help. They are not falling, they are projectiles now.

You could use the pillars of the bridge and the ground for web but time will depend on initiative rolls and casting time.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: Rise up Rise up

The die is cast and the plan is set as Arien and Lun move upwards towards the hanging Hunters. The rest of the party waits beneath on or near the bridge where they can watch and prepare for ...well anything. The two adventurers reach about 40 feet up when something happens suddenly.

The six bodies fall, or rather the “ropes” that holds then lengthen and they drop about ten feet dangling on blank tentacles covered with small suckers and barbs on them. Then the serpent like appendages reel back and with a snap, hurl the bodies of the hunters in unison at the party below.

Now unburdened from their former prey; the black tentacles move toward the Knight and the Priestess with lightening like speed.

OOC: You are in combat. I need actions posted. Remember if you are on the ground, you are under bombardment by dead bodies.

Subject: sorry

What I meant was I only needed to know up to the point where your plan goes horribly south.
