Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Wolf in Jail

Wolf woke up to the sound of the door to the cellblock wing opening, he was unsure when he had dozed off. A man walked in, giving a wave and a thumb up to the guard outside, “Thanks man! Owe you one!” His voice was familiar, and as he got closer, Wolf recognized the man with the machine guns that had met during the battle. The mechanic couldn’t place his name, not even sure he said it at the time, but the marshal was the one who called the warning to him. He was also the one that fought against Wolf being arrested. Wolf could see the signs of the fight too – a bit of a shiner under one eye. He was also sure that this man had been wearing a corporal rank but his jacket now had the Private ranking.

“Hey man! Remember me? Hudson! From the firefight on LV-426?” Hudson smiled like he was talking about a sports games you had attended together. “You were Wicked, man! Blam Blam Blam, Game over man!”

(assume some greeting and what are you doing here?)

‘Figured you’d be stewing for news and the Colonel said it was okay. They won’t let me stay long but hey, here I am man!”

(weren’t you a corporal?)

“Ha. Yeah. Not the first time I’ve been busted down, won’t be the last either. So My CO, Sanders is now running this show. Marshalls and Military tend to butt heads so I don’t envy his job. Give me a firefight anyday, man – you know what I mean? Anyways, we are working to find the gun, Hicks and Vasques have a line on a guy who knows a guy. But those fat cats you pulled out of the fire? Yeah man, they threw a ton of credits at your captain so he is getting you a lawyer to make this all go away. You’ll be a free man, man! Miltary won’t like it but who gorram cares? Tsao ni zuzong shiba dai.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: opening the door

There are no traps to find and the lock is already broken, so the strongest of the party force the door open with brute strength. The door is barricaded with chests, 20 or more that have been stacked around the entrance way. The lids of many are open, revealing expensive and colorful clothes. The bed is a mess. There is a badly decomposed body in the far corner of the room, the species of which is unclear. Whatever it was, it was humanoid, short in stature, and shows no sign of a violent death. There are a number of papers and pages lying around the room but one paper on the floor with the following note written in common is prominent - as if left to be found.

Master We kepe hows nice sins you bin gone. Kleko got sik and dide. Me sik now. Not much time. Golum in dining hall broke.

Really quite funny when you don't even know the game. Then it is like playing roulette with players who claim they have a system.

Subject: timeline

Because screwed up the ending timeline, here it is in point form. I intent on most of this as a narrative by me.

First night on Sihnon
You are shown to hotel, given the night to rest. Sanders team report findings to Sanders. Hudson visits Wolf to let him in on news.

Next Day
One crew member is allowed to see Wolf in morning
Afternoon: you will be taken to Rocinante to get personal effect
Sander's gets permission to have Havlock buried in Serenity Valley and that you will be the ones to take him there.
Evening: Hicks and crew get the drop on Simon, Gun is found
Crew members start to receive invites by the former passengers to parties and social events over the next week.

Third day
Sandra Wong gets into see Wolf.
Judicial Inquiry called for Wolf's case, scheduled for next day
Rocinante taken to Shipyards for repairs. Baron Winters estimates seven days for repairs
Tess receives word that Destiny is back and flying. She lets Wyatt know that she will be leaving as soon as possible, since they ain't flying anyway.

If you have anything you want to add to this, let me know.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I feel I am stretching this out. Please post what you can by the weekend because I am going to wrap this up by Sunday.

Have to say I am struggling here with the desire to do a bunch of writing here and stretching the pausing between games too long.

Subject: clear

I have no intention of ending the game, I just wanted to get a reading if people were bored. I am putting something in that will make the game move a bit quicker. Once we are at the end of this module we can re-assess the party and if people want to change to their own/new characters, I am all for that.

I have posted enough to get the crew to the end of the day and STEAKS!!!!!.

This will give V a chance to catch up on her post and everyone else to put down any more thoughts on the plan.

I need to know if you plan to keep Asante as a prisoner or not.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: going forth

Much is discussed by the crew but in the end, the plan is simple enough until the time that they get to the cruise liner and then they will see what can be more specific, but truth be told, a lot of it will be made up on the fly as the chips are falling.

JC lucks in finding a name on the entertainers list that he recognizes- Annie Foy. Although he has not seen her for a long time, JC remembers helping her as a kid and she is now listed as a stage singer for the cruise liner - specifically opening acts before the bigger performers. If there is some way that JC can work that angle, then you'd have a person on the inside of the ship.

Returning to the galley, The brothers carry Asante back to her room and lay her on her bed to sleep off the effects of the drug. (I leave it to Grace and Jon as to whether you wish to lock her in her room or not.) When she does wake up a couple of hours later, she is not anger but seems to find the ordeal very funny - laughing it off completely. She once again asserts her intention to not harm anyone on the ship and that she is willing to work with you against the machinations of the Baron and Templeton

Lilianna, Seth, Rick And AJ hear you out on what you tell them of your plan. Lilianna is happy you are willing to help her and offers the valuable necklace as payment if you can get Daniel free along with here. The brothers have no desire to kill Daniel and are willing to do whatever it takes to get out of having to do so, but AJ is determined to get the Colt back from Templeton.

Seth agrees to help as long as it does not break his oath to protect Lilianna and his oath to protect the Baron. On the idea that the Baron is plotting something, he adds his thoughts plainly, "I know the Baron is a man who likes his money and what it brings him. I have no doubt that he can be ruthless in his business dealing but there is a honour considered in doing so in the verse. Most people speak of it with great pride. As well, it is completely within the law for a father to select a husband for the daughter, even if I do not agree with it. But the Baron has always treated my family and other families of his workers generously and fairly. He expects us to work hard but he is not a evil taskmaster or one to demand more than a person can give. I seen him pay for sick workers' treatment, give a dowry to daughters marrying ranch hands so they could afford to start out. So I stand before you dubious of your assertions. Lilianna assumed I was a henchmen of her father with the desire to force her to marry. If she misunderstood my intentions, perhaps the same holds true here."

With not much else to work out, the ship returns to a somewhat regular day in the black. The Brothers are only too happy to help out in any way, although Rick is most interested in help Grace in the engine room. Lilianna doesn't mind helping out with cleaning and chores despite her nickname of Princess. It seems that merely talking about her fears has made her more cheerful. Seth continues to watch Lilianna like a Hawk and if you let Asante out, he his way of her as well.

Day Two of Journey, Destiny's Galley, 5:30 pm ST

Catie and Lilianna take the steaks and start to prepare them for dinner. With all the tension and talk of plans over the course of the day, the thought of a sit down dinner with a delicacy rarely had is a joyous one. Catie has onions and dried mushrooms to make up a nice sauce that will go well with rice and peas plus some fresh bread that they can make. Once the steaks hit the grill, the smell whaffs it way through the ship and everyone is salivating soon with stomachs growling. Soon dinner is ready and everyone is treated to a lovely meal of porterhouse steaks that would have cost you a month's ages at a restaurant.

Subject: sigh

I am getting the feeling that I am not really reaching you (the Players) in this game. This is a more cerebral module, not very combat heavy so perhaps in is not the best for online gaming? The whole thing is based on a puzzle within a puzzle.
