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

Real Life, like network producers play havoc on our firefly game. I know Robert wants to post but his RL situation is crazy right now.

I am going to barrel this forward on the weekend if Robert doesn't post. Cat and I will work out the meeting. I will make the following assumptions with Sam:

He will tell the crew about the hidden loot and part of Brigit's story.

He will tell the Captain all the details including the hiring of Ludlow.

He will suggest that they meet with Brigit to go over the details of the treasure and the hows and whens.

That would be in the afternoon, after the town meeting. Once you have that meeting, you can have a group meeting about what is going to happen next.

Yes, there are a lot of meetings going on. I promise that you will be leaving soon with a paying haul but I can't rush through all that.

Topic: Holiday Humour
Subject: For those with cats


1. Clear large space on table for wrapping present.

2. Go to closet and collect bag in which present is contained, and shut door.

3. Open door and remove cat from closet.

4. Go to cupboard and retrieve rolls of wrapping paper.

5. Go back and remove cat from cupboard.

6. Go to drawer, and collect transparent sticky tape, ribbons, scissors, labels, etc...

7. Lay out presents and wrapping materials on table, to enable wrapping strategy to be formed.

8. Go back to drawer to get string, remove cat that has been in the drawer since last visit and collect string.

9. Remove present from bag.

10. Remove cat from bag.

11. Open box to check present, remove cat from box, replace present.

12. Lay out paper to determine size to cut.

13. Try to smooth out paper, realize cat is underneath and remove cat.

14. Cut the paper to size, keeping the cutting line straight.

15. Throw away first sheet as cat chased the scissors, and tore the paper.

16. Cut second sheet of paper to size - by putting cat in the bag the present came in.

17. Place present on paper.

18. Lift up edges of paper to seal in present. Wonder why edges don't reach. Realize cat is between present and paper. Remove cat.

19. Place object on paper, to hold in place while tearing transparent sticky tape.

20. Spend 20 minutes carefully trying to remove transparent sticky tape from cat with pair of nail scissors.

21. Seal paper with sticky tape, making corners as neat as possible.

22. Look for roll of ribbon. Chase cat down hall in order to retrieve ribbon.

23. Try to wrap present with ribbon in a two-directional turn.

24. Re-roll ribbon and remove paper, which is now torn due to cat's enthusiastic ribbon chase.

25. Repeat steps 13-20 until you reach last sheet of paper.

26. Decide to skip steps 13-17 in order to save time and reduce risk of losing last sheet of paper. Retrieve old cardboard box that is the right size for sheet of paper.

27. Put present in box, and tie down with string.

28. Remove sting, open box and remove cat.

29. Put all packing materials in bag with present and head for a room with a lock.

30. Once inside locking room, lock door and start to relay out paper and materials.

31. Remove cat from box, unlock door, put cat outside door, close and relock.

32. Repeat previous step as often as is necessary (until you can hear cat from outside door)

33. Lay out last sheet of paper. (This will be difficult in the small area of the toilet, but do your best)

34. Discover cat has already torn paper. Unlock door go out and hunt through various cupboards, looking for sheet of last year's paper. Remember that you haven't got any left because cat helped with this last year as well.

35. Return to lockable room, lock door, and sit on toilet and try to make torn sheet of paper look presentable.

36. Seal box, wrap with paper and repair by very carefully sealing with sticky tape. Tie up with ribbon and decorate with bows to hide worst areas.

37. Label. Sit back and admire your handiwork, congratulate yourself on completing a difficult job.

38. Unlock door, and go to kitchen to make drink and feed cat.

39. Spend 15 minutes looking for cat until coming to obvious conclusion.

40. Unwrap present, untie box and remove cat.

41. Go to store and buy a gift bag.

Yes - You have 2 attacks per round now.

Character sheet - yours is in html which makes it tough to edit. I usually let people update their own files, hence the reason I posted the changes. Hit points are easy with me, you always take max because ...

Subject: all games are created equal, some are more equal than others

I despise the 3e 3.5e 3.14159265e, and 4e systems, but I think that a gamer is a gamer and they are all welcome at the red dragon inn. We may discuss, agree and fight over which system is better, but we all agree that any "e" is better than reality. (Oooo. I should put that on a shirt)

I'm all for more partners and affiliates whether it is Dungeon and Dragons, Mutants and Masterminds, Toons and Loons, Buns and Bakeries or Bustiers and Bordellos.

Subject: master level

Yes Bromern, you may triple your kukri specialization to master level. That will give you +3/+3 and also has the added bonus of any fumble that results in loss of weapon will be re-rolled. You can not move higher than master level in specialization.

Fighter (pure) can master as many weapons as they wish. Ranger/paladin can master one, but single specialize in as many as they wish. Non fighters may single specialize in a single weapon. (my rules, in case you are flipping through the books trying to find this).

Topic: Who is your favorite superhero?
Subject: edit

I just changed the short ame on this thread so it doesn't get confused with Skari-dono recruitment.

By the way - if you like Superheroes, try your hand at a RPG. SD is looking for players.

Fave Superhero - Wildfire (Drake Burroughs) from The Legion of Superheroes.

Aren't we all being a bit evil here? I mean, Skari-dono posts for recruitment for a superhero game and we all post with "That's cool. I'm not going to play but it is cool."

I feel guilty because I started it.

Superhero RPG. Ooooooo. Must resist the call of the tights....

I played a superhero RPG called Champions (I think) back in the early ...well a long time ago. I'm a sucker for Iron age leather and lingerie style. We were playing a sorta "Watchman/X-men" crossover style.

Anyway, I will look forward to lurking on this, but I don't think the tights will fit me anymore.

I hope all goes well for Noah. For all the scary sounding possiblilities they throw out, there are two common ones that are not mentioned. The fact that he is bright and moving should be positive. Hopefully it is just a matter of him being a picky eater.

Subject: Welcome to seventh level.

All you warrior types - you get a new weapon prof. or you can add to a single specialization and a new Non-weapon

All specialization melee attacks are now 2/1 instead of 3/2.

Wizards also get a new weapon prof and non weapon.

Kilgim now has 5/5/3/1 in cleric spells (Yeah for fourth level spells).

Adrian has 24 mana points and now has fourth level spells.

So get your requests in early. Christmas and combat are coming soon and either leads to a slaying song tonight.

Yes, I am very sleep deprived. Thank you for getting all wavy like and sparklish, with the lights and the glowing like.

Subject: For those who wait

The Temple, Regina, Frisco – 7:10 am

“I am under your protection now, Lao Tsu.”

He accepts the pin with a smile that reads of knowledge and mirth at the same time. He gives Willow a bow in honour of her actions and then begins his search of her with swiftness. Across the arms and the back of her neck, his fingers breeze across her clothing and flesh, barely making contact – like a warm breeze across the skin. Down Willows back, his hands were stronger, but not rough. Like the hands of a well-trained masseuse, his touch triggered waves of relaxation and peace across her back.

Then he moves to Willow’s legs and his touch became a seductive caress, releasing waves of desire and passion from within the doctor. Her stroked her inner thighs down to her ankles with the lightest of touches and back up the outer legs across her hips and stomach to end just below her chest. Willow found herself breathing a little heavy as Lao Tsu stepped back and wishing that she could find a dignified reason to ask him to search her again.

“You may enter now.” He said with a bow and gesture to the door. “Grandfather awaits you.”

Through a set of oak doors carved in relief to look like an extension of the garden, Willow enters into an inner sanctum. The room is fragrance with lavender and floral scents, but the plants are all hanging from the ceiling. The room itself is sparsely furnished, with Mats for kneeling and a few long round cushions. The old man sits across from the doorways, about 20 feet away from Willow as she enters. In between Willow and the old man is a wooden chess set on a small stand. The workmanship of the board and pieces is nothing less than beautiful, yet the white king is missing from the board.

“Do you play, Miss Takahara?” the old man asked.

Ragtime General Store, Beylix, Newhouse – 12:00 am

Dason left the general store with a rusty Ruger 22 with a full clip. The lady inside was really pretty but she drove a tough deal when she knew that the person in question was in a hurry. But he didn’t care – he had a job to do and then he’d be back on easy street. He walked down the street, putting the pistol in his pocket so not to draw too much attention, and headed towards Emmett’s Bar.

Emmett’s Bar, Beylix, Newhouse – 12:05 am

Andrew looked at the pile of chips he had in front of him and then at his cards. He had won the first couple of hands with the workers but then the pots went back and forth for a while. Now, Darryl was in for 25 credits and Doug had raised 10. 35 credits to him with a whole lot of nothing unless he discarded one and took the chance on an inside straight. But if he didn’t get the 9, then …

Someone entered the bar behind him. Andrew glanced over his shoulder, but it wasn’t anyone who he knew or looked particularly important. He turned his attention to the cards again.


He knew the sound of a gun hammer being cocked back, and his instincts took over, Long ago, Andrew had learned that best to react fast, even if you were sure you were the target. His gun was in hand and leveled before the barmaid had started screaming.

Subject: have we fizzled?

The report back from Char and Dapple was not filled with hope. Two creatures of some sort of demonic power, a mysterious master, silent priests, and a dead town that you were suppose to investigate. Furthermore, the destruction was so great as to leave very little cover for a stealthy attack. No matter how you would approach the scene of this misfortune, the beings could spot you from their vantage point.

There was no time for hesitation or doubt though. In the name of all that was good and those poor people, you had to take on these being. If there were survivors, they would be in dire need of aid.

OOC: Time for heroics people! Saddle up! Peasants to rescue, mysteries to investigate, demons to kill. Woohoo!

I'm sorry that I have created a delay in the game. With William's birthday this weekend and Christmas coming, by the time I got free time this weekend, all I could do was plant myself on the couch and watch "The Quick and the Dead" (my quilty pleasure).
