Okay, we are rapidly approach the two month mark since I posted this and I only have one character in. I understand RL but if we are going to do this, we need to move forward. 


So I want all characters in with backgrounds by October 25th. If you need assistance please let me know. If I do not have characters in by then, I will close this thread and move on to other projects.


PDF's or Word or google docs can be emailed to me rbriant at gmail


Thanks

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Moving into the ship


Pops gingerly made his way into the airlock closing the opening behind him and turned to the opposite hatch; he never liked working outside of a ship but it come with the territory in research and development. He'd been responsible for quality and that meant sometimes investigating in the black just because it didn't act the same on the ground. After decompressing the small airlock Jonah opens the portal there need to be a seal to the Demeter so he applied the seal ring and activated the magnetic clamps to hold the crafts. He then located the hatch's access panel, opening the panel he found the scanner port and an axillary power input. Attaching a portable power supplier to hatch controls and the data pigtail he switched on the scanner and probed the programs. A familiar security protocol highlighted; a couple of key strokes to check for any triggers and an auto disarm command was activated. Pops then sent the command to open the hatch locks.


The doors move slightly and then stops. “Error 1742” lights up on the small display for the door mechanism.


“Well damn it.” Jonah said “Anyone know what an error 1742 is?”


Alex started to type it into the computer but Wyatt answered before he could finish, “Decompression Breach. Means the doors were opened from the bridge while the ship was pressurized. And then shut again.”


Jonah grunted in response and moved to the manual override.  It was an old turn wheel mechanism that would not work if the ship was pressurized but since it wasn’t, Jonah began to turn the wheel. The doors moved a bit more, then the wheel became too hard to move. Fenris came over to help and between the two of them, the door were finally opened.


Although in your suits, the wave of coldness could be felt from the dead ship and the life support heaters in the suits kicked in. beyond the doors was the small airlock and cargo bay of the Demeter. It was about 20 x 15 in dimensions with a steel grate floor. The door opposite to you, to get into the ship was closed and the emergency inner doors (a second set that closed only in a breach situation) were closed as well. There is nothing in the cargo bay except torn straps still hanging from where they were secured.


There are small flecks of something floating around. They are a grey silver colour and very thin, like paint flecks or film. Not a lot but enough that you notice them.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: working assumption


I do not want to get bogged down in tech discussions here. I am working on the assumption that the shuttle can make a seal using some sore of inflatable polymer and magnetic clamps. You will have to go through the shutlle hatch and the ship hatch but as you zeroed out the pressure, you can leave it open. You will habve no power to open the Demter hatch, but can use the shuttle power to get the door open or use the manual override.

Subject: besides


The ship id dead except for a very small power signature. Spliting the prty is not a good idea in D&D but even in the Firefly series when they found a ship floating in the black, Mal split the party to get what was needed done.

Topic: 5e One Shot Adventure
Subject: components


For this adventure we are not worrying about material components unless it is a high ticket item (IE the gemstones for a resurrection spell). I do not want the spell casters made useless. Same with spell focuses or books. You will be able to cast spells and get them back.

Topic: 5e One Shot Adventure
Subject: warlock


Warlock has always struck me as a class made up by someone who does not play the game and has heard the rules third hand from another room.


Yes you wuold have 20 mana to use and yes you get it back after a short rest. However, you also blow 5 mana per spell as per the rules. 


From the rules: For example, when you are 5th level, you have two 3rd-level spell slots. To cast the 1st-level spell thunderwave, you must spend one of those slots, and you cast it as a 3rd-level spell.


so in mana terms, you have to blow the max level of mana per spell (Thank the patron for Eldritch Blast not costing slots or mana)


My better option: You have the 20 mana, you can cast at whatever spell level you want and use the apprioriate number of points per spell. But you get the mana back after ONE short rest only. After the short rest, you do not get any back until you have a long rest,


I am open to discussion

That is actually a very good idea. I did not think of you zeroing out the pressure in the shuttle.  


 


If you look at map, left side, bottom of map is the only airhatch.

Start with 75 points to spread across abilities.


Keep in mind you will have 3 ability score boasts to add in later (or Feats).


Oh....btw. Lucky is off the table as a feat. Just saying that now.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: closer


Everyone gathered gear and quickly went to the shuttle to prepare for the mission. There was only so much you could prepare for this type of mission. A dead vessel floating in the black with only a faint power signature? What could possible go wrong? A ship has backup systems and the bigger the ship, the more backups are usually there. I science vessel design for long range exploration would have multiple fail-safes.


Ivy remained behind to watch the ship and the shuttle departed. She watched nervously as you all prepared to go. She spoke privately to the captain for a time just before leaving, but whatever she said did not change the countenance of his face.


 An EVA suit was brought for everyone and multiple air canisters just in case. Alex brought the shuttle parallel to the Demeter, giving it a close once over before deciding how to proceed. Damage to the Demeter was minimal, in fact other than the communication array being completely destroyed, there was no sign of breach or harm to the hull to would have explained the current state. Any window where you might have gotten a glimpse inside was frosted up.


Alex managed to find a floor plan on the cortex for an Apollo class explorer. No telling what the modifications might have changed but it was a start. (see QnA thread)


Alaxis brought several body bags with her. It was a somber fact of life though, a dead ship could have floater in it. If you were to restore power and life support, no one wanted to see a dead frozen body start to thaw.


There was only access points you could use to gain entry into the ship. There was a single EVA port on the back of the main module, just above the long tube part of the ship.. The shuttle could do a belly to ship connection and you could try to override or manually open the port. The challenge with that would be that you could only enter the ship one at a time as the airlock on the shuttle is quite small. The other option was to do the Suited leap across to open the doors.
