Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, "The Slaughterhouse", 8:40 PM PT

So, this is what I'm conjurin' up," Wyatt said, "Eight hun'red plus the drums already on the table an' an additional five hun'red should there be a need t' engage in any kind o' cowboyin' plus the cost o' any munitions spent in yer service. Hazard pay, dohn ma?"

"If ya wanna kick it up to an even thousand," Sam interjected, "I figger I could see to it as we get there quiet-like." He shrugged a little. "It'd take an extra day but we'd keep off the scanners an' outta the sight o' any pryin' eyes, get me?"

At the moment of your counteroffer, Saul's face loses it composure. It is like you slapped him hard and he is reeling with the need to recover. All hope and dreams drain from his face and you are left feeling like you told him that his dog just died. He recovers quickly though and laughs, a ruefully self- depreciating kinda of laugh, and motions over to a table that is emptying.

"Shall we sit down, Gentlemen?" Her ask politely while taking a seat and setting his drink down, "First off I am not one of those Potters. Well technically I am but they cut me off and disowned me back when I joined the independence side over the alliance. If I was still in their good graces, I would gladly pay you what you asked."

(knowledge check for both of you - The Potters are one of the richest families in the central planets. Major shareholders of Blue Sun Inc. and other major industrial manufacturers through the verse. Bromern and Eol - check you PM for additional info)

"That being said, I never fault a man for wanting to make enough money to feed their family and keep them safe. In many ways it is what I've being doing ever since the war ended. I've the mind you been doing the same despite what the news vids say about your recent professional protection. As a good friend of mine says, ‘alliance lies to suit their needs' so I am going a bit on faith with you. Hell, I survived on less before.

"But I digress. Let's be truthful here so we can come to an agreement. I don't have more than 500 to give you at the start and I can only spare 5 drums. Unless your man who just left can actually beat Bart in the ring, I have no way to gather more funds between now and tomorrow when we leave. But, there are funds where we are going, if you can wait a tic. I can easily offer you another 1000 on Pegasus, bullets flying or not, but I am looking for quiet like and off the scanners in two days." He says holding two fingers up for emphasis. "Now I believe you are up to that challenge if half of what I hear about you is true. Also, Pegasus is in its apogee so that will cut down the flight time. Now we get there, there is an opportunity to make double what I am offering but I can't speak of that until we get there and it won't make your alliance friends happy. So if this ain't your cup of tea, well I am happy to pay for your drinks and call it a day. What do you say?"

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Inside "The Honeydew", 8:40 PM PT

Stymied in his attempt to get more on Bart, Wolf handed his chip to Earl and asked for Clementine. Earl smiled broadly as he took it and pressed a buzzer under the counter. "You're in for a treat, friend" he said and then gestured to the rack of spirits behind him, "Miss Pennyfeather is one of the best. Another Ng-Ka-Pei?"

Clementine Pennyfeather

Clementine Pennyfeather comes down the stairs with a slight coy smile on her face, dressed in a fancy blue dress, cut very high in front to show off thigh-high stockings and a peek at her bare legs. There is something perfectly beguiling about her, as if every aspect of her was made for seduction. She comes to the bottom of the stairs and smiles at Wolf, "Welcome Newcomer." She says in a voice like an angel with a hint of a colonial accent, "Care to follow me? My, you are a big one, aren't you? Are they all big like you back home or are you just extraordinary?"

(Assuming some conversation as you go upstairs with her)

She lets you into the room. It is tastefully decorated with a king size bed, four poster with canopy and a few outfits on display of various designs and suggestion. She closed the door behind her and asks, "Were you looking for quick and easy or did you want the full hour? I don't mind either way but you look like you might want to linger a bit. Oh, and just cause your new, if you lay a hand on me the wrong way, there are men outside that can be here in two seconds and they won't ask questions before they lay you out. "

(Assuming some conversation. Keep it PG please)

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Outside of "The Slaughterhouse", 8:40 PM PT

"S'ok,..hell I've been in the black long enough them's just words,.ya gotta get'um out sometimes or they can rot ya from inside,."

Ash stowed Fenris's gear in Roc's mule and locked them away safe. "Well it's still a pretty night.. I can keep quiet'n listen to ya liberal tongue all you need." The two started to walking into town.

Whether it is by nature or years of being on guard, but Asher always keeps an eye out, even with a pretty lady. He notices that a man is outside the Slaughterhouse, across the street and watching the door. He ain't wearing a badge but something about the stance and the thigh slung holster makes Ash think this is one of Patience's deputy. He isn't watching Ash or Colleen though, he is just keeping an eye on the doorway.

"You ain't like most guys are you?" Colleen asks, "Most guys just want to get under my shirt as fast as possible."

(assuming some response)

"So what am I to do now? I love Nelson. I really do but now he gone and screwed it up royally. Part of me wants to forgive him and pretend it never happened and another parts knows I can never trust him again. Why do men always cheat? Tell me?"

(assuming some very evasive response)

"Hell I ain't sure I'm even the marrying type. I've been true to Nelson but I thought about stepping out once or twice. Hell, 20 minutes ago I was fully intending on making you a happy man for a night. So I'm just as bad right?

(assuming some response)

"Maybe I tell Nelson, that is it. He humps who he wants and I jump my own. Fair is fair, we stay friends right?"

(assuming some response)

"No, I don't want that though,." She starts crying again.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Rocinante, 8:40 PM PT

Mrs. Wilson smiled, "Well I have a cousin working a farm on the southern end of Bellerophon continent. She said she could take Chloe in and the baby. She can even give you some credits for all your trouble when you get there."

"I'll tell the Captain that. Send me the coordinates so we know where to go and I will let you know what he says. I am not asking for money but the Captain may appreciate a contribution to the fuel costs."

Chloe awoke suddenly, "I ain't leaving Petrie." She said groggily.

"Chloe, dear, Petrie is not gonna help you." Mrs. Wilson admonished.

"You don't know him. He hates his dad. Wants to be his own person. He loves me and wants to do right by me."

"Oh they all say that Chloe. Trust me, Petrie won't defy his father."

"Perhaps we should ask first?" Stephanie interjected.

"What?" Mrs. Wilson exclaimed, "Ask? You'll endanger Chloe if you speak to them!"

"I am aware of the dangers Mrs. Wilson but you are working on assumptions that may not be true. We can not just discount the father without attempting to speak to him. Surely we can create some form of subterfuge to speak to Petrie in confidence?"

"Men can not be trusted in my experience." Mrs. Wilson pronounced.

"Yes. I got the impression that was your way of thinking. Tell me, where does this boy live? Where does he hang out for fun? I am sure that between the two of us, I can find a way to reach him without confrontation of the authorities."

Running on fumes lately. Having a lot of sleep issues for the last few weeks. Nothing different from the sleep issues I have had all my life but normally I get a break here and there. This has been three week of constant early waking.

Anyway, enough of my whining. I may post the counter offer from Saul since it doesn't effect the other story lines.

Tough counter offer there Wyatt.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: okay lets look at this

You are not paying anything while sitting in a field. You would have to move to a spaceport to refuel, do maintenance etc. Considering it will be a higher price here than any other planet, you may not want to do so. Besides, in a port, Patience can put a land lock on you and search your ship.

Fuel on Whitefall is controlled by Patience. While it is usually 5 credits a ton, here it is 15.

Roc has a 60 ton tank. You have 15 tons in the tank right now. so to fill up would cost you 675. Sorry, I don't know where I got 800 from, math is hard.

Potter has offered you 500 cr plus 5 of his drums, so another 10 tons. Note that this is his opening offer, he may be willing to haggle. Normally for three day journey it is 50 c a person and 175 c for the cargo (on the low end). So you are looking at 375 would be the lowest and he is starting at 500 plus 150 c worth of fuel (Planet pricing).

Now remember that Roci's new engines are fuel efficient so you get an extra 25% out of the fuel, so 25 tons of fuel is really 312.5 hours of flight. So even with hard burn, you could get to Pegasus and beyond to fuel up at a decent rate.

The part about shares and how much money you have now seems correct to me.

Does this help? I hope so.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, "The Slaughterhouse", 8:30 PM PT

Pegasus... The first that passed through Sam and Wyatt's mind on mention of Pegasus was how little they actually knew of it. It is a moon of Bellerophon, and beyond that it has never been on your list of places you visited. Alliance was gonna build a base there during the war but the war ended before they could finish it. It was about two days away, three if you were ghosting.

Dash's attention is diverted for a second by the barkeep's return. He offers the man an appreciative nod as his drink is refilled, then, reclaiming his glass and indulging in a sip, he turned his eyes back to Potter. "How ya lookin' ta pay?"

"Well, that depends on the fare? How about 500 credits and I could part with 5 of the fuel drums if you were willing?" Potter asks politely. He appears relaxed but his eyes are constantly moving around the room like he expecting something to jump out at him.

"So whaddya think, Wyungsung? Mr Potter here's lookin' ta get hisself, a couple o' his puhn yohs, an' some gear off world...

(Note 5 fuel drums is about 100 hours of fuel for a firefly. The drums are heavy and usually have an antigrav housing to help with hauling)

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, On the street outside "The Slaughterhouse", 8:30 PM PT

"Ok wow, well ma'am" Looking around Wolf made himself seem as if he was blushing, "I have never been to a place like this before to be honest. I'm new on planet and been on ship for months now and I heard of this place and ahhh thought I'd come over. Ahhh what's a rind?" He started to remove what weapons he had taken with him.

The lady looked back at Wolf and smiled, "It's an expression, Sugar. Don't worry about it." She gave him a dubiously look that suggested she saw through Wolf's attempt at subterfuge, but that she didn't really care to challenge it. She locked up the weapons and put the box away, handing the key over to the mechanic along with a white chip, like for a poker game. "Honey, you give this to Earl at the bar and ask for Clementine. She'll show you what's what. First ride is free, after that, it is up to you." And with that she pressed a button under the counter that buzzed the huge steel door open.

The interior was a two-level split with the bar, lounge chairs and tables on the main level and then the upper floors being rooms upon rooms. Many women wearing all sorts of corsets and lace were on the main floor, some leading men up to the upper floor. There were four men with rifles at the corners of the second level, watching the crowd. They were all dressed in the same flannel shirts and vests, denoting that they worked here as security. A man was working behind the bar, with a bowler hat and a fine mustache.

It was not hard to spot Bart in the crowd though. He was in a booth with two ladies, wearing a white shirt, completely unbuttoned and black pants. Wolf could see he was a big man, extremely muscular and with many black tattoos of geometric patterns. His attention was on the women and not really paying attention to anyone else.

There was another familiar face her as well. The man Wolf met out on the range was here as well, Duncan. He, unlike any other patron was armed and was seated away from Bart but where he could keep an eye on the fighter. A lady was sitting with him, and there was something about her that stuck wolf as odd. It took a moment but then it dawned on him that the lady was made up to resemble the girl that the Doctor had snuck upon the ship - Chloe.

As Wolf looked around he realized that a lot of Patience's "deputies" were here. But only Duncan was allowed to carry a gun but the looks of things.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Outside of "The Slaughterhouse", 8:30 PM PT

Asher noticed the slight tear in the woman's eye, "I gotta stow this stuff out it the mule,. You know it was look'n like a fine night out there, a person might find their soul in the stars,.,I could use some company and maybe get showed the town a bit. It'd be nice to have fine lady as yourself to be that one,.would ya come for a walk with me?" The kid gave her sheepish smile and a little nod of his toward the door. She looked at Asher, then to the bottle and then back at Asher and followed him to the door, "What's your name?" she asked.

(assuming an answer)

She nodded, "I'm Colleen. Colleen MacPherson." As you exited the bar, the night air was cold and refreshing, while the night sky was clear and full of stars. "I'm the pilot on Morgan Creek, a salvage hauler, Devon class. What you fly in on?"

(assuming an answer)

The guy you saw who was kicked out? That was Nelson O'Reilly, the engineer on our boat. My boyfriend, well ex-boyfriend now. I don't know how I'm gonna fly out with him now. You need a pilot?"

(assuming a no)

"What a gorram mess! We been together for a year now and he is acting all strange like. You know how hard it is to keep a secret on a small boat right? Well I knew he'd bought a ring and was planning to pop the question. But the damn BUN tyen-shung duh ee-DWAY-ROBUN tyen-shung duh ee-DWAY-RO loses his nerve, gets drunk and has a fling with a barmaid the night before he plans on asking!!! Shee-niou FAY-FAY duh PEE-yen!!!! Go tsao de Liou coe shway duh biao-tze huh hoe-tze duh ur-tze!! Ching-wah TSAO duh liou mahng! " She curses loudly and then smiles sheepishly at Asher. "Sorry. The drink makes my tongue a bit liberal."

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Rocinante, 8:30 PM PT

Ma came around to Stephanie with Mrs Wilson in tow. "I wanted to make sure everything is alright." She said properly, "I have put a great burden upon you."

"She is sleeping but she and the baby are well." Stephanie shrugged, "No greater burden than I would have myself. The question I have been contemplating is what now? The Verse is a big place for someone so young."

Mrs Wilson smiled, "Well I have a cousin working a farm on the southern end of Bellerophon continent. She said she could take Chloe in and the baby. She can even give you some credits for all your trouble when you get there."

"I'll tell the Captain that. Send me the coordinates so we know where to go and I will let you know what he says. I am not asking for money but the Captain may appreciate a contribution to the fuel costs."

Subject: Dark Fantasy 2e DnD

They say that there once was a great civilization with heroes and powerful magicians. They worked wonders with their power and fought the forces of evil. But those are stories, and like all stories - true or not, they are no longer real. For you, the world has always been in ruins. There are no heroes left to right wrongs and no magic to be wield - not by mortals at least. There are demons, and for you there have always been demon in the world who have magic of their own and rule over the remaining pockets of mortals. It has been so long that are few full blood demons left, but half-breed spawns of lustful demons have taken their place. Although mortal weapons could not hurt a demon, their own magic could. In some ways, the half-demons are worse because they look mortal, nearly impossible to spot and are filled with an evil so much greater than their parents.

You live within a fishing village called Basstown. Either you were born here and Wuton killed your parents, or you were a foundling from another village. A half-demon called Master Wuton ruled over your village, taking whatever it wanted from the villagers and wallowing in its own gluttony. A dwarven smith named Otto came to your village and made offering of forging steel and iron to Master Wuton. He became part of the village and all of you apprenticed to him in some fashion. Yet, Otto had a plan of his own.

Turns out that Otto was quite old and reminded the days before the demons came. He had an idea on how to defeat the demons and enlisted you to his quest. A full demon of great power had died nearby. You searched at night while Wuton was satisfying his lusts for food and women to find the bones of this dead monster. Eventually you found them and took some of the bones back to Otto. He began forging weapons and incorporating the ground up bone meal of the demon into the metals.

Otto also found four small shards of crystal near the remains and when you touched them, they had a strange effects. One of you could feel the power of magic flowing within your body. Another felt the power to heal wounds and illness. One of you became quite fast and could blend into the darkness and one of you became quite strong and could sense where Wuton was even at a distance away from the village. Otto was mystified by the shards, not knowing where they came from or why and warned that they could be remains of the old world magic. How reliable or safe - he did not know.

Otto made four weapons, one for each of you as well as armour to protect you for demon magic. With it, you were able to stand up to Wuton and destroy him - setting your village free from years of tyranny.But what next?

Game Terms
I am thinking a party of 4-5 people Each one of you has one weapon that better against demon and your armour has bonuses against the magic demons cast. Four of you will have a shard. I have three confirmed players so far (Nomad (Fighter/mage), Tann (Fighter/Thief) and Ody (Ranger)) so I am looking for 1-2 more.

There are three types of demons in the world. Half Breeds are the most common. They look mortal (dwarf, elf, human, halfing) but they are immune to most weapons and most elements (fire cold, etc). Some can cast fire, some lightening, others dominate the mind, some can shapechange, etc etc. Half breeds spawn either half breeds or mortals - there are no quarter or 1/8 breeds. Next there are the "ghosts" or the ones without bodies. These possess mortals and cannot be killed. You can kill their mortal shell but not the ghosts. Finally, there is true demons and they are very rare. They do not look human and are very powerful. You have never seen one other than the bones of the one you dug up. According to legends they are shapeshifter, immune to magic and weapons and quite demonic in their natural appearance.

In a Verse known for things never going smoothly, the transfer of Chloe to the infirmary went off without a hitch. Once she was set up in the med bay, Wyatt let it be known that as soon as Wolf was back on board, times for a meeting. The mechanic arrived not long after and was called to the central eating area of the ship along with everyone else. Chloe was a young girl, with a look of innocence to her, but her eyes spoke of innocence lost and long since taken away.

Wyatt and Stephanie informed the crew of who Chloe was and why she was on board (you can read the backstory as posted before). They were a little vague on intentions at the moment but no one doubted that they would not help Chloe, it was just how and how to keep it quiet. Wyatt asked everyone to keep it to themselves and explained to Wolf that they'd rather not get Eagle-Eye involved if they could avoid it as to not raise trouble for him harbouring a fugitive when he was unawares.

(You may fill in details here as you see fit)

So it was that Wyatt, Wolf, Asher and Sam headed out to the slaughterhouse while Ma and Stephanie stayed behind with Chloe. Everyone had a comm on them, in case things decided to get unsmooth.

Interactions at the bar stay the same, and we are now on the same timeline. (Yay)

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, "The Slaughterhouse", 8:20 PM PT

"Excuse me?"

,Sam swallowed the liquor, wincing faintly at the burn it left in his throat, as his gaze turned to the rather sickly looking man who'd just approached.

"I am Saul Potter," the man offered, "I am looking for a ship to provide transport. Are you part of the crew of the firefly that landed on Sarafina's land? Are you looking for a cargo?"

"Yup," Dash returned, indulging in another sip of his drink as he sized the man up, "I'm th' pilot. Name's Dash. An' yeah, Potter Shian Shen, I reckon we's always lookin' fer a cargo. Fella's gotta eat, dohn mah?" Sam offered an affable grin, then, and, with his glass, gestured toward where Wyatt sat; "Th' Cap'n's over there. Serious lookin' fella wit' th' serious lookin' hat. He's th' one ya'd wanna talk to ta get the deal done proper," Another sip of the whiskey brought Dash's eyes back to Potter, then, and he lifted a curious brow; "What's yer cargo, puhn yoh?"

Mr. Potter looked over at the Captain and back at Sam. Sam notice the bulge in the gentleman side denoting a shoulder holster and the pilot would have bet good money it was a small service pistol from the war. Just something this man screams efficient but not showy.

"Myself, three passengers, one being an older man., plus some equipment, tools and the like, and a number of hydrogen fuel cells about ten maybe. Going to Pegasus." Potter spoke quietly and sipped his drink to see Sam's reaction. "When you looking to leave? I have some business to take care of but tomorrow night is looking really shiny. Suoyou de dou shidang? (does that sound proper?)"

(Elsewhere in the bar)

Weighted down with Wolf's gear draped over his shoulders Ash chuckled,"Well it looks as if I'd at least be able to protect you,. I don't mean to be too forward but do you need escort anywhere?"

The redhead snorted and shook her head. "Thanks all the same Kid, but the only place I want to go is deep into this bottle, and then trade my body for a soul. Not like ," she stops for a second and then starts crying, not loudly but tears welling into her eyes.

(and elsewhere)

he game begins with a fair amount of chat going on across the table—these are men that know each other well. Wyatt plays a few hands and watches his potential client through the corner of his eye. Surprisingly, after a while, Potter picks up his drink and walks over to Sam. This'll be interestin'. he allows a momentary distraction from the pair of twos in his hand and leans back a bit in his chair to stretch out the tenseness in his shoulders. He trusts Sam, but he also knows that the pilot has a bit of a mouth on him. A conversation with Sam Dash can go any direction.

Straining his ears, Captain Sung attempts to discretely catch anything that is said at the bar. He picked up the gist of what was said by Potter and mulled it over in his mind. Timing was right. He noticed Wolf had left the bar, leaving Ash with most of his weapons. Wherever the mechanic was going, he obviously wasn't looking to start trouble. Not that he really needed a weapon to start trouble.

And Asher was talking with the prettiest girl in the bar. Well, Some things don't change.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, On the street outside "The Slaughterhouse", 8:20 PM PT

Wolf walked down the street toward the tavern called the Dewdrop or as the local referred to it, "The Honeydew". The night air was cold and refreshing, and there night sky was clear and full of stars. Wolf noticed that the guy kicked out of the Slaughterhouse was pacing outside "The Wreckage", a bar for scrap haulers. He was drinking straight out of the bottle with one hand and holding something small and square in his other hand that he really couldn't take his eyes off. Wolf had seen a man rejected before, and this clearly looked like one to him. He arrived at the Dewdrop, a two story "inn" very similar in design to ,well every other lace in this town.

Inside, there was a small foyer and sitting area, decorated in red velvet and white lace. There was one door beyond the entranceway and it was steel reinforced and looked thick. An older lady was at the counter, looked up at Wolf and smiled brightly. "Well welcome stranger! You new in town? You got hardly a rind on you, may need to give you a discount? Now all weapons got to be checked, and I mean all. Knives, guns, little guns, whatever. You get a key to the box, and we ain't lost anyone's yet. There the main room when you go in, and the girls all have their own rooms so you can have privacy. We prefer you keep your business in the rooms, nobody wants to be compared to a big boy like you, I'm sure. Why you are as big as Bart by my reckoning. Small, Medium, or Large? The box, I mean. And do you want to go from the menu or pay the one price for the night?"

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Rocinante,, 8:20 PM PT

Stephanie checked Chloe's vitals for the umpteenth time as the young girl slept. The doctor had wondered if Chloe would need something to rest but once made comfortable and safe, the girl nodded off quickly on her own.

Both mother and child were medically okay. They had been through a lot, more than any young mother had gone through but they were safe for the meanwhile now. But if her life on Destiny had shown her anything, it was that things rare stayed quiet long. There were people hunting for this girl.

Ma passed the infirmary again, looking in quietly. The older woman had changed into what looked like a full suit of battle armour in bright pink. Stephanie had been around war enough to recognize rea armour, but the colour was a complete mystery - although it did match the pink shotgun that Ma had slung on her back.

People were hunting for this girl. Well, they'd have to go through Ma first.
