Topic: Star Trek: No Good Deed Q&A
Subject: belt


Seems to me there is no need for pockets in the future. You don't need a wallet, you don't need keys, you don't need a cellphone.

I think most accessories are designed to clip to the belt or pants (phaser, PADD).

The scanner could fit into a large pocket, like that of a jacket or winter coat. Definitely not a pant pocket (Is that a scanner in your pocket or are you happy to see me?)

Yes your SM is visible, but only if you stand up. the wall of the booth hide it right now.

Time for one of my crude maps? From where you are sitting, the bar is directly across, the table you were at before is to your left and towards the back. The entranceway that the police came through is to your right.

I have placed everyone at the table together. The scanner is the size of a portable dvd player.

Unfortunately, I am not getting many posts for this game. Have I lost you all so soon?

Merideth - you will have the Catellan Lt. Bob N'Doog to help you in engineering. I can't let a Star trek game go by without posting as Lt. Bob. We last left him as head of Ship's computer so I'll have to see where time has taken him. He's not the most ambitious of star fleet officers.

Hera – Gambler’s Gully, Ace in the Hole Saloon. 9:25 pm Saturday

The asian man and his friends left the bar with the case in hand. The woman in questioned looked perplexed and then turned to head around the corner towards Kane and Mel. At first she seemed to move towards Kane, but stops abruptly and says, “I’m sorry, I thought you were someone else” before going pass you to search the booths in the back.

Kane and Mel move back to the table along with Grace and Phil once the mechanic gets his attention. Angela is still at the table but with a man sprawled across, on his back. As you move closer, you see than apparently he has fallen asleep there as he snores loudly. One of the serving comes by as you convene and gently lifts Arthur off the table, “He does this all the time. We got a cot in the back we call Arthur’s just for him.” She leads him off to the back as he sleepily sings, “Santa Claus is coming to town”.

Left to you own again, Kane and Mel fill the party in on what happened and show the scanner to the others. The viewer alone is worth at least 20 credits, so there is a profit to the night. Grace shares what she heard about your potential employer on the news feed and ponders aloud whether she could make a receiver out of her multiband watch that might pick up the signal of the earwigs the gentlemen were using.

As you talk about the possibilities for awhile, the scanner suddenly beeps twice loudly and then seems to reboot. The disk re-engages and the schematics appear again, only this time the security codes and passes appear.

Just as you realize your possible good fortune, sudden the front doors of the bar burst open and four police officers armed with assault rifles and wearing body armour charge in. At the same time, you hear the sound of the back door being crashed as well and the screams from some of the barmaids. The low buzz overhead tells of a hover vehicle circling overhead.

One of the officers speaks into a megaphone, causing his voice to echo across the room. “No one move! This is a joint Police and Alliance Special Forces raid! Everyone freeze and put them up!”

Nice artwork in this comic. I like how the flow is smooth. I have to say that I wasn't sold on the continious storyline before but I am enjoying things so far.

Very busy at work right now, which is why I have been absent for the last couple of weeks.

Hera – Gambler’s Gully, Ace in the Hole Saloon. 9:21 pm Saturday

“Ya see that’s’ the problem Blondie’s missing, no word no contact, since I got the word the disk was secure and the meet here was on, then nothing. I’m afraid my partner has been waylaid perhaps or has decided to cut me and my new crew out.” Kane said while trying to think of a way that the situation could turn out without someone drawing a gun in a room full of twitchy people.

The disk dealer stared at Kane for a moment, and cocked his head to the side, either an expression of confusion or disbelief. “So be it.” He says with a shrug and laughs, “Keep it. Good luck to you. I’m outta here.” And with that he steps back a few steps and quickly turns to head out of the bar.

(assuming no one shoots him in the back, Xi leaves the area. He will not respond to anything you call to him)

Grace

“NUTS!” Grace called out. The man jumped startled as did more than a few people nearby. “Oh sorry, I just really like nuts.”

“Yeah…right.” The gunman replies as he reaches for the bowl of Wasabi peas, his eyes on Grace the entire time and hands them over to her. “Here ya go.”

(assuming Grace answers.)

Just then, the Asian man that was meeting with Kane and Mel walked by muttering to himself. As he did the blond man abruptly followed behind him. Grace saw at least three other men getting up quickly throughout the room as well. As the leader passed, Grace saw what she was looking for in his ear, a small plastic plug that both sends and receives transmission.

Phil

Wait..." Phil lost his train of thought at the station, “Who are you looking for again?"

“Oh you poor dear. Was it a head injury? Probably unattended on a battlefield while your friends and loved ones died around you.” Phil found himself caught in another embrace. “Don’t you worry. I can find Jonathan myself and you don’t have to worry.”

At that moment, the man that was talking to Kane and Mel walked up to the lady in a hurry. “Mercedes? Do you have my disk? I just gave the goods to your boyfriend and he’s acting mighty strange.”

The lady lets go of Phil and turns to the man, “Xiam? Of course. Here it is.” She says holding up the attaché case. Xi snatches it from her. She stares at him stunned, as if she never expected anyone to do that to her. Neither the leader nor any of his posse seem to notice Phil standing there.

“Let’s go.” He says as he heads for the door, three men forming up around him protectively.

Angela

“I’d love a sandwich, Mister. I honestly can’t remember when I last ate!”

“What a good idea then. Wonder why I didn’t think of that. Miss! Miss!” he stands up and stops a barmaid as she goes by, “Can we get the sandwich platter here Lulu? And a couple of those fruity drinks with the little umbrellas?”

“Arthur!” the girl says with a laugh, “I thought you stopped drinking?”

“I did my dear. I did. For a least five, maybe ten minutes. That’s quite an accomp … acobo …. acumbr …good for me don’t ya think?”

The server laughs and moves off. Arthur goes to return to the table just as the Asian man that Kane and Mel were speaking to pass by, followed by the guy Grace was talking to and a couple of others. The big blonde fellow pushes past the drunken man causing him to lose his footing. He falls backwards on to the table in front of Angela and laughs hysterically, “Did I get you into bed already my dear? I seem to be lying down. Hahahaha. I should have at least introduced myself first. I’m Arthur, and you are?”

Subject: see


I saw the film and frankly I was disappointed. The film has no real direction or anything new to offer. the special effects were nomimal, the message "people are bad, corporation are bad, mercenary armies are bad," has been done before and done better.

I left the movie feeling nothing but disappointment. No other emotional engagement. I didn't feel good, I didn't feel bad, I wasn't enraged, I wasn't happy. It was just blah.

Kane and Mel

The screen showed Perdition, a prison on the far side of nowhere and lost. The man showing you the data disk seemed to think this was of particular interest to you. But there were many places on the disk. But without the codes – the engineered codes that couldn’t be overwritten and controlled everything, this was a disk of old blueprints – useless to anyone but a collector.

“Well my friend you see there’s the problem in all this, I don’t have the disk anymore, but seeing as how this is already paid for what say we call it even.....” Kane said as Mel moved her hand to her weapon.

If the man with the disk heard Melanie’s holster unsnap, he showed no sign of it. But he did show a conflict of emotions on his face at Kane’s comment. “What? I…” He stood up in disgust and turned to stare down at you, “Can I speak you for a moment? In private? Excuse us lady but I need a moment with your friend here.” Xi says,

Kane shakes his head, “"Whatever you have to say, can be said in Mel as I trust her more then I trust you, besides she knows it all anyway so why the secrecy?"

“Fine”, he says in disbelief, “What is your game here? Of course you don’t have the disk! I know that! I’m not gorram stupid. That was blondie’s job! You want to pay for this useless disk, fine! I’ll sell the good one – but I get my disk as second half of payment.”

Phil

Phil was sorta used to women reacting badly to him. He knew he wasn’t good looking in any person’s standard and girls could be a might twitchy around him, but he didn’t hold it against them. This ladies reaction however, did throw him for a loop.

“Oh you poor dear!” the blonde exclaimed and pulled Phil into a tight embrace, clutching his head to her bosom, “Jonathan told me of your plight. Your oppression will end. We will see a verse that is truly free on day.” She released Phil and looked at him with a smile, “So where is he?”

Grace

The young mechanic moved closer to the bar and the gentleman she was watching. She approached with caution, angling around tables and chairs to try to subtly get a look at the man’s ear. There ware no tables open close to him, just a bar stool next him. Unfortunately, as she approach, he turns his head to look directly at her. “See something you like there Missie?” he drawls quietly, his hand going to his sidearm slowly.

Angela

Angela sits quietly alone at the table. She is somewhat startled when man sits down in the booth with her – and not one of her friends. Short. In a word that is her first impression of him. He is a short man, with unkempt black hair I na style called a mullet and fine if outdated clothing that appear to have been worn a lot over the years. He smells of expensive cologne and cheap alcohol. He smiles at Angela and says, “Hello Girls! Well, I mean just you but Hello Girls sounds so much more friendly than Hello Girl, which just sounds like my father. So what’s a good looking place like you doing in a girl like this? Can I buy you a sandwich? I know I’m suppose to buy you a drink but I’m kinda hungry right now, you know what mean?”

Subject: it's a little bit funny....


For those of us who grew up in the 80's and play 1e/2e - we are reaching the point where even if we don't like the new rules, we need some familiarity with them in order to communicate with the world wide D&D community. Otherwise we will end up like a group of old codgers at a Home, sitting on a porch watching the gamers go by and complaining about things being better in our day (We has THAC0 and we like it!)

I was at a Con the other day talking with a young man who was a D&D gamer. He and I discussed being a DM and he told me he had been a DM since he was 7. When I told him I had been a DM since 83, he was shocked and said quietly "...dude, that's the year I was born."

If it wasn't for WoTC obvious cash grab of multiple books and editions, I'd probably go out and buy 4e to read up on them. As it is, I'm turning to Cortex now, which is a good system adaptable for anything.

I'm blogging a bit here, aren't I? See! I'm hip!
