Topic: Isle of Putnam- QnA
Subject: ok


I will assume the role of Wembley as Aryn is out for awhile. So I am waiting on Ody to tell me which end he is pointing where when he pushes the button (cause we know Dudley has to push the button). I am also waiting on Kyle for Mal but he is without a weapon to effect the Iron men.

Subject: money money money


To answer Albert's question on money:

Credits are a paper (rolled polymer actually) based system and exchangeable anywhere. If you are inclined, you can also have your money in a bank and use a card, a chip in your multiband or link it to your biometrics. The caution of credits is that every single bill print has a microfibre tracker on it (so they say) and every time to go through a scanner, it is tagged so technically they can track you with your money (not that the alliance would do that. Think of all the manpower involved, it would be absurd right?). Of course money linked to a chip or card is very very very traceable.

The alternate is Platinum pieces which people prefer out in the Rim. Platinum can not be traced, is portable and in a bad situation can be used as a weapon in an old sock or sack.

Some planets produce their own paper money but it is not good outside that planet and only locals use it. If you are Planet hopping, the last thing you want to do is shift through your cash and try to figure out what works where. It is important to state you want payment in a specific form if you are dealing with local people.

So it makes sense that JC would have some paper money. If it is being traced, it is better to ping the system few times than not at all - makes you look legit.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: metal men



The gas quickly dissipates quickly. With renewed confidence, Crow and Gamard attack the Iron Men. The automatons are not designed to defend themselves so Crow is able to damage one of them so much that it stops moving. The one attacking Gamard is bearing a couple of deep dents.

Alondas attempts to trip up a Metal man with his staff but the creatures are too well grounded to be upset by such a trick.

Mal boldly states his refusal to die without the winds and or roar of the sea to take his spirit. Such declarations have no visible effects of the Iron Men but they are focused upon those who have taken the weapons from the case.

The short staff that Dudley grabs is of a perfect height for a Cidal or a Khord and is framed with a bluish-white metallic cap on one end and a brownish red cap on the other. The heft is light and it is easy to handle. There is a black button on the centre of the staff, exactly half way between the two ends. There is no sign as to which end you point towards your target when the button is pressed and wishing for a wind creature has no effect.

When Wembley grabs the orb, something odd happens. The silver metal becomes like a liquid in his hand, twisting and curves around. It is warm to the touch and as it shifts it sudden solidifies into the shape of a dagger. Then the metal changes to liquid again and forms the shape of a sling-staff, just the right size for Wembley.

The Men of Iron attacks hit Gamard against a string blow to the chest that would have floored a normal man but the hearty Khord roll back to his feet and continues with the attacks. Wembley is struck hard as well as he attempts to gain some control over the liquid metal in his hands. The third one strikes out at Dudley but the fast moving cleric is lucky enough to avoid a solid blow.

OOC:
Crow – Light wounds
Gamard – Serious wounds
Dudley – Light wounds
Alondas –Light wounds
Wembley – Serious wounds
Mal – Serious Wounds

One Iron Man is down, One is wounded. Two are still fine

In case people have forgot

Light = 25% of HP lost
Serious = 26-50% of HP lost
Critical = 51-75% of HP lost
Death Door = 76% or more of HP lost

Subject: so then


As I see this from what I read here:

You are moving into the cave in order to attack the wererats and take the cavern.

Jar - cast Invis on Ari and Kad, moves to Chain Lighting for rats
Ody - Flame strike on Hill, missile weapons after
Ari - Charge while invis
Kad - Charge while Invis
Max - Hide in Shadows, backstab if possible or missile
Lun - Cast Protect from evil 10
Spa - Bow and Arrows
Fin - Bow and Arrows

Subject: Lack of a tactician


You are facing a large number of opponents. The most basic of plans here would be charge in, missile weapon user flank out, spell users go for mass effect and damage and let the armoured sword and axe users go up the centre. Using Invisibility could get you a round of attacks for free but that would be about it.

If this was my usual group, Gallirian would charge in loudly drawing all attention. Rune would start with Lightning and then Ice Storm, and Vanadia would sneak into the cavern and use the darkness to her advantage.

You really don't know until you try to climb but based on Maximus's description, you think the packed earth would require either claws or some skill to ascend. How long? A few rounds unless someone was lobbing javelins at you, in which case it may be a bit slower.

Fireballs brought the roof down on you before - what are the odds it would happen again?

Waiting on Olan. Aryn, and Eol to post. Unless they were planning to stand around and do nothing this round.

ss I said before, Mmv is busy with school and asked me to cover her actions which were say hi to friendly crew outside, avoid looking at hairy guy and then head to the spaceport tower.

Not sure how your actions would be different. You approached, said hi and introduced yourself. Jade came up behind you and did the same. She is very quiet in her movements.

Day 1, Serenity View’s Spaceport, 6:15 PM PT

“Hi neighbours! Want some shine? Made it myself.”

“Thank you I think I will, ” Wolf answered but Jade shook her head with a pleasant smile.

“Chewie! I told you to put on some clothes!”

“Ahh Captain!” The hairy man replies, “Why? My body is a temple.”

“Only if you worship a bear god. Is Billie up?”

“No boss. Still sleeping it off.”

“Sleeping what off?” The captain looks down at the jug, “oh no Chewie. You didn’t.”

“She was armed Captain.” Chewie put his hands in the arm defensively.

“She is always armed. Oh ....bother.” The Captain puts his face into his palms.

“Hi I’m Fenris Apollo, mechanic on the Firefly, thought I’d come over and intro myself.” Holding his hand out to shake he waited for the Beowulf Captain’s hand and reaction.

“And I’m Jade.” The pilot said while trying hard to focus on only seeing the Captain.

“I am Justin. Justin Case. Yes you heard me right and what can I say, I have heard all the jokes. Y mother had a devilish sense of humour.” The Blond man shakes hands with both of you. “This wild man is Chu Shen, but he prefers to be called Chewie. He is my mechanic and this is my boat - Blue Angel absent from this social gathering is Billie Rudd who is ... indisposed.”

Chewie smiles and hands the jug over to Wolf. (Assuming you drink) It is actually a pleasant liquor, with a sweet taste that reminds Apollo of bananas. The mechanic has tasted a lot of bad homemade shine in his time but this was actually quite smooth. The captain takes the jugs back and takes a drink himself.

“well pleasure to me y’all.” Said Jade, “but I better head over to the tower and see about some things. I am sure we will see each other lately.”

“The pleasure is all ours Jade.” The Captain says with a wave.

“If you want some later let me know! I have a double batch.” Chewie says.

Chewie takes the jug and sets it down, “So Captain did you find out ....”

“Not now Chewie.” Justin said quickly.

“But if we are going ...”

Not Now Chewie.” Justin repeated with a edge to his voice.

Chewie apparently got the message and turned back to Wolf, “Firefly eh? Nice machine. Take you anywhere even if half the parts fail on you. Those aren’t the factory drive pods are they? You had work done recently?”

Day 1, Moringstar’s Ranchhouse, 6:30 PM PT

“Howdy. Name’s Wyatt Sung, Captain of Rocinante. This here is Willow, our ship doc, an’ the kid is Asher. Public relations. We was told t’ visit Mr. Morningstar on touchin’ down t’ get the lay o’ the land ‘fore we set out t’ make good our delivery. He isn’t, by chance, available fer a bit?”

The gentleman nods back at Asher and gives a polite smile to Willow. “Yes Mr. Morningstar is in his office in the back. I can take you to him if you’d like.” He turns back to his men and notices that more than a few are admiring Willow from where they stand. “Hey! What are you doing! I told you to get back to practice. Didn’t your mama ever tell you it is impolite to stare!” The men sheepishly return to the landmines and avert their eyes to the task at hand. Connors returns his attention back to you. “Just follow me. Sorry about that Ma’am. They don’t mean to be rude.”

Connors leads to the bi-level portion of the ranch house and holds the door open for all three of you to enter. There in the hallway you can see a stairwell going up to the second floor and several doorways closed on the mainfloor. There are several wooden pegs on the side wall for hanging jackets and hats and below them are more hooks for hanging ones sidearm. Connor point to these and says, “If you would oblige, I’d ask that you put your side arms up there. Miss Ellie, bless her soul, could never stand weapons in the house and although she is gone, we like to respect her wishes even now. Don’t worry, no one will mess with your stuff.”

(assuming you will. Connors is not armed btw and there are no guards in the hallway)

Connors leads you upstairs and down the hallway to a doorway. He knocks twice and then opens the door. “Mr. Morningstar. There is a Captain Wyatt Sung here to see you?”

“Okay Jon.” Says a deep voice from within, “Bring him on in.”

Connors opens the door wide and lets you enter the office. It is a large room, probably the master bedroom of the house converted over. A large dark wood desk is on the far right if the door with a lot of papers and a cortex box on top. There sits an older man in a white suit and a white hat who smiles and stands up as you enter the room.

Virgil Morningstar photo virgilMorningstar.jpg

Standing away from the desk is another man who is dressed in a Shepherd’s outfit. He Looks at you with curiousity and interest but his expression is more somber.

Shepard Wiley Carson photo ShepWileyCarson.jpg

“Thank you Jon. Good Evening to you,” The Man in White says and offers his hand, “I’m Virgil Morningstar and this here is Shepherd Wiley Carson. How can we help you?”

With that, Connor nods politely and leaves the room.

I would suggest you talk to the Baron and see what he wants from you. The brothers have instructions that they have to follow or blow their own cover.

The gateway into the cruise liner is protected with newtech SMART Weapon scanners and HIGH MOUNTED MACHINEGUNS. This is a GM warning.

I miss-understood about levers. There are no buttons or levers on the Iron Men.

Wembley can not quite reach the portal. It is open though. If Ivan stood on you he could reach it but it is a good 6 feet above the top of the cabinet.

You certainly know that grabbing the sword was attracted their attention.

BTW - Two of the four Iron Men are damaged now. Hard to tell how much but they are damaged.
