Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Asher's Part

The young lady smiled sweetly at Asher, and the Kid could feel his cheeks warm. “Thank you, sir,” she started. “For being so obliging. Truth is, I best be… AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!”

The young woman’s screaming caught Asher completely off guard, causing him to place his hands on his pistols as he spun around to see what the girl was screaming about.

…and there stood Ma.

He turned back to the young lady, “Ma’am, please… calm yourself. Screaming like that’s bound to bring over some unwanted company. And that’s something neither of us wants.”

He paused for a moment, collecting his thoughts, “Honestly, ma’am. You’d think you’d never seen the end of a shotgun before. That there’s Ma, and she won’t hurt ya none.” He smiled back at Trish. “She’s just coming to see who’s joining us for dinner tonight.” To Trish, he said, “I think she’s fine, Ma. No worries.”

“Ma makes a mean paste-loaf that’ll make ya think you were eating real beef.” He gave the girl a wink.

The girl stops her screaming and has the grace to look deeply embarrassed. “I am so sorry Ma’am. I just didn’t… I wasn’t expecting…I’m frightfully sorry. Please forgive me.”

Trish shoulders the shotgun and looks a warning at Asher. The kid knows the look well; she thinks the girl may be trouble and is gonna keep an eye on her. Fixing her hood again to hide her features, Trish moves back a few steps but doesn’t leave the cargo bay.

With the girl a bit calmer, Asher moved to get a little more information. “Now, Miss…I don’t think I got your name. What kind of trouble would ya be in?”

“I’m Linda. Linda Kovak. I need to get of this hunk of dirt something fierce. I have a little money saved and though it ain’t much I can work. I already work at the Lawrence Saloon so I can fix up meal and clean and the like. I just needs to be gone and soon.”

(assuming some sort of prompting as to why)

“You see, my father is aiming to marry me of to this man, a man who is a bit older than me and well, I don’t be wanting to be married just yet. I want to see the world, I want to go the core worlds and maybe one day become a famous singer and dancer maybe even an actress someday. If I do, I’d be more than willing to repay you but I need to get away from here.”

OOC: I am fighting a cold and I accidently deleted my post once tonight so I am gonna stop here and write tomorrow.

I would like to post this weekend as I want to keep the momentum going. If you got something to say, please put it down.

Robert - If I may disturb your Birthday tomorrow, I will probably be sending you a message on some "action" you are getting.

Subject: other shoes

Think of it from Dalmer perspective.

I tossed this guy through a wall, rained debris down on his head, try to crush him with my demonic "kill from a distance" power and the guy isn't even fazed! What do I have to do to kill this guy? The only damage I have done is to his clothing!

I'm pretty sure you are okay bob. you don't cast spells freely like some....

However I have lost track over time so I need to check it or this will become much like a Western, where the guns never run out of bullets.

Red Wiz - gets you through the dungeon.

Olan - try hitting him some more. So far, your rolls have sucked. Actually that is my rolls but they have sucked.

I thought every knight dreams of the one on one combat with the big bad guy? I can change that if you want. I'll take a page from Lucas and send in the Clones.

You are two distractions and one final battle away from ending this campaign.

I need to go back through all the posts to find out where the spellcasters stand on mana. We may have some dead batteries on the blasters in the party.

Well I hope that Skari can get the game going. It is the second attempt beyond mine to create a game. If not, I may have to start another game.

You are always welcome to play a villian for a while. Could be interesting for a change of pace.

With Sam going to the bank with Brigit, does he have the account number for your "bank account"? You may want to work out the details before I pay you.

Subject: Another thought

Although I am sure you feel the spider web forming around you, I would think that you don't want to leave planetside with an empty cargo bay or at least passengers. Seems like that will burn a large hole in the payment you are about to receive.

Not that it's my place to tell you what to do or when ... just good business sense.

Subject: Nice to have everyone back.

OOC: I am going to assume that Wolf will tell everyone the rumours on Brigit that I posted in the Q&A

Rocinante, Frisco Landing Pad, 12:40 PM RST

“No need to apologize, miss,” Asher said confidently, trying to act all smooth like the Captain. “I ain’t the captain… he’ll be back soon though, if ya want to wait around for him.” He paused for a moment, mesmerized by the woman’s eyes, before adding, “You can wait in here, if ya like. I’m sure Ma wouldn’t mind."

The young lady looks behind her and then come into the ship. She smiles sweetly at Asher, ‘Thank you sir for being so obliging, Truth is, I best be … AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”

She screams in pure terror. Asher looks around to see that Trish has come into the cargo bay with Bessy in hand – no doubt responding in caution to his call before. However in the action of pumping the pick shotgun, the hood around Trish’s face has slipped, allowing the young girl to see the damage done. Asher and the crew were long used to Trish’s condition and didn’t pay mind to it, but to this young girl it was more than she could take.

Outside School House, Frisco, 12:15 PM RST

Brigit finished closing up the school house and called over to your group, “Oh Captain Wyatt? Perhaps you could lend me your right hand man here, “ She said strolling up next to Sam Dash and linking arms with him. “Frisco is a desperately lawless place and a woman can never be too careful. Sides, that way Sam here can make sure the transfer is on the up and up and I can feel safe with such a well armed man protecting me.” She said sweetly while looking very helpless and frail before the captain. “I promise to give him back in one piece Captain, and I’m sure Wolf here is dying to see them there engines of yours and I’m sure that you and Miss Willow here would appreciate the alone time.”

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: Oops

The building was crumbling fast, of that there was no doubt. Everyone needed to find an exit and find it fast before becoming an epitaph.

Kilgim, Dapple and Char headed toward one window. The glass shattered before they reached it as if the building was anticipating their actions. With a nimble leap, Dapple was through the window with ease. Kilgim thrust himself forward to only reach about halfway to the windowsill. The warrior muttered to himself in dwarven as Dapple turned to aid the dwarf and Char did the same from behind. The cleric was up and over and Char wasted no time getting past the window, rolling to the ground outside.

Adrian finds himself in a moral dilemma and can’t leave the fallen red mage behind. He scoops her up as gentle as he can at speed and heads for the window. Her body is limp in his hands, and her eyes stare unfocused upon anything. Her skin is a grayish hue. He’s seen it before - Wizard’s Twilight. She used too much of her life force to cast magic. But Adrian has also seen mages recover for the twilight so he will not give up.

This is a good death the little mage thinks to himself, satisfied that at least in his sacrifice, his friends will live and he can be with Wynter at long last. He could feel her beside him now, calling to him, almost shouting but Jal couldn’t hear her as he concentrated on the….

“OOOFFF” The air blew out from Jal’s mouth as the great big lug of a Gladiator grabbed him quite easily.

Concentrate on the spell, I will get us out of here” Maximus says heading for the other side of the room. Jal struggled to maintain the spell but there was no hope. The building was coming down completely.

Maximus threw himself and his charge at the window but the wall and building was coming down. The mage and Warrior crashed to ground outside as Maximus threw himself through the open window. The building starts to come down to the north, directly towards where Arien and his enemy are fighting. Then something happens, a wave of force hits the taower and there is dust and dirt everywhere,. You are blinded but all the dust in the air and coughing from inhaling it.


Outside the battle continued between Arien and Dalmer. The Knight tried his best to land a blow upon his opponent but that damned green scaled arm deflected every attack and lunge he made. Not only was this commander moving incredibly fast but he seemed to know Arien’s fighting style completely.

Arien was struck hard across the back of the helmet with the flat of Green’s sword.His vision blurred and he staggered back, reeling from the blow when the impossible happened. Dalmer used his demonic arm for an overhand blow, braking Arien’s shield in two. The Thedell Shield – the shield of his father was broken, hanging useless from the straps that previously held it to his arm.

Then the tower came down. It had seems to slow for awhile, but then it gave way complete and fell directly towards Arien and Dalmer. The commander sneered at the distraction and waved his green hand at the tower. As if hit by a wave of immense force, the tower broke apart, sending rumble and debris flying off on all directions.

The dust is blinding. Everyone is cover in a layer of dirt as sand falls from the tower and the sky. Arien hears Dalmer cry out loud, “I can’t work with all these distractions!”

As the dust settles, the dark night sky can be seen. There, floating in the air above you, where the tower once stood is Alloryn, dressed in a Red Imperial uniform, and a silver collar around her neck. She appears to be struggling, almost writhing in the air, and it could be a trick of the light, but it seems like the remains of dust in the air form an almost dragon like shadow around her body. All around her is a green glow, which pulsates faintly.

“No!” Dalmer shouted, “It is too close to dawn! You fools, you will doom us all”

OOC: Kilgim, Dapple and Char are on the west side, Maximus, Jal, Adrian and Wind are all on the east side. You are all very dirty but no more damaged from before. If you wish to find Arien, it will take you more than a round to get through the rumble and dirt. Arien, your shield is truly broken and can longer be used in this combat. However, Dalmer is distracted right now.
