Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: Oops....


Wembley draws back the third curtain, "Let's see what's behind curtain number three," he said cheerfully as he stepped into the room. But when he did a billow of hot steam poured out causing him to flinch back from the blinding vapours.

Which may have saved his life.

A huge spiked ball on a chain flails out of the steam cloud and missed Wembley’s head by less than an inch. As the Cidal dove back to get out of the way, four heavily armoured humanoid creatures with dark brown skin and hair, about 7 and a half feet tall, stepped out of the fog. Two have long swords and shields; one has a heavy crossbow in hand with two quarrels (Over/Under like in Ladyhawke) but a sword at his side. The third is a head taller than the others and wields the flail.

The Flail Ugly says something loud in a guttural tongue but the meaning is obvious as he raising his weapon intent on pounding Wembley into ground meat. They intend on killing you all. They move as one like a military unit. The one with a crossbow is shouldering it to draw his sword.

Each one of them his a symbol on their armour on the right shoulder. It is of a red Rose wreathed in flames. A Sendrian symbol of Amer'loc.

See illustrations in QnA.

Just a note to players that you should really make sure you have points in skills before you make attempts at tasks. If you do not have Covert at all, you might not be able to sneak. If you do not have perception or knowledge, you might not be good at finding things.

I will try to find a skill to suit a task but being good with a pistol will not help you re-wire an engine.

Havelock can drive a Mule or pilot a shuttle. His skill is average in both but he knows how to run them. He will tell you his skill with a pistol is better than with rifle but he has plenty experience in both.

“Can you tell me what is this place?” he asked turning back to her, “Who’s place is this?”

The Lady turns her head slightly as if thinking and then replies, "I am sorry. I do not understand you question. Would you like a nice relaxing massage?"

NOTE: there is a portal across from the curtain in this room and the one on the west.

Subject: and you find


Alôndas pulls back the curtain of the east side and it reveals a room of the same dimensions as the Sauna you were just in. There, stands a woman with Blonde hair and blue eyes beside a table with padding on top. The woman is dressed all in red leather ... or something that resembles leather but is glossy and thin – not suitable for armour at all. In fact, the red outfit only goes to midway between her knees and thighs and from there she has red garters and red silk hose going down to red shoes with an exaggerated heel – at least 6 inches. She bears no weapons and certainly could not be hiding anything in her outfit.

The woman moves a step away from the table and gestures towards it. “Welcome sir.” She says, “Would you like a nice relaxing massage?”

Looking at her as she moves and talks, it is quite obvious that she is not a “real” person but some sort of creation, much like the man in black you met previously. Her skin looks unreal, her eyes do not move and her mouth and speech do not sync together.

Crow pulls back the curtain of the west side and it reveals a room of the same dimensions as the Sauna you were just in. There, stands a woman with red hair and green eyes beside a table with padding on top. The woman is dressed all in white leather ... or something that resembles leather but is glossy and thin – not suitable for armour at all. In fact, the white outfit only goes to midway between her knees and thighs and from there she has white garters and white silk hose going down to white shoes with an exaggerated heel – at least 6 inches. She bears no weapons and certainly could not be hiding anything in her outfit.

The woman moves a step away from the table and gestures towards it. “Welcome sir.” She says, “Would you like a nice relaxing massage?”

John was going to work on the transmitter of the Head boomers in an attempt to figure out the code. He can not do that and fly a shuttle. Which would you prefer? John vote is the tech in a cave not flying anywhere near where people can shoot at him.

Mules is good. You also have a second shuttle and a earth mover that could be repaired.




Wolf can rig the sleep gas that Willow provided to the cargo bay. He could also rig the cargo bay door to fail by draining the hydraulics thereby causing the doorway to crash down as soon as it is accessed.

So here is what I worked out using the map I pulled. The white represent the max elevation in that area. So there are some hills and cover near the strip. If you need more info or details, let me know.

As I have provided this map late, you may plan and develop a strategy now before your next moves.

I apologize for not doing this up ahead of time. I was trying to get away without doing a map and it just did not work.

Subject: no combat experience


While most of your characters have no combat experience, you can try to think like your opponent and work on that basis.

Now I have no combat experience but I would think you want to work on the basis of hitting them and running, hitting them and running. So you want to have several fall back position. Wolf with machine guns and Asher in the hills covering him.

They can't use scatter gun, kill anything that moves tactics. Remember what it is they want and use it to your advantage. hell, strapping the silver case to Wolf or Asher might scare them a little.

Does that help?

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with G and that stands for Ghost


Jon had expected to hear more about security issues…assassins…bounty hunters…kidnappers and other concerns from Miss Fairchild’s companion. When he had seen the sway of Asante’s hips a small alarm went off in his head.. this wasn’t going to be a security talk. Then when she said, “I am not much of a person for flirting or being coy” he was about to interrupt her. But that was when she turned dropping her jacket and exposing herself to him. He stunned by her beauty. The words of her proposition roll over him as he found it impossible to remove his eyes from her. Then as she leaned in to him he caught her wrists and stepped back. “Miss Chang… I… I….I have a firm rule that my crew cannot fraternize with the passenger…. And to be honest..I am not available to spend the time with you.“

He quickly turned. “But …if you are looking for someone to help you pass the time perhaps that fellow AJ could fill the bill.” and found himself face to face with Stephanie who had just entered the room. She had her arms crossed under her chest and had an expression of mixed shock and disapproval.

(Assuming some stammering and stuttering)

Asante was shocked at the Captain's refusal and more than a bit embarrassed to have another woman walk in on them. She hotly exclaimed, "You have your mother on board? that is really strange. You own a ship but live with your mother."

Stephanie's look turned icy and dangerous and suddenly Jon wished he was anywhere but on this ship, in this room. "Cover yourself dear. You'll find that most men prefer their gifts wrapped."

Asante grabbed her jacket and swore under her breathe as she threw it on.

"I am Dr. Stephanie Young. Tell me, was hiring a double to masquerade as Lilianna your idea?"

"What?"

"The double. There is a press gallery following Lilianna right now as she makes her way to the yacht for her journey to the cruise liner."

"Oh... That would be the Baron's idea. Not mine. With the threat of kidnapping and such he decide to take rather elaborate precautions. Not a good double either, she is too old, voice is all wrong and she is about three cup sizes bigger."

"Ahh. Well they are saying she has a cold. As to the cup size, no one has noticed but prehaps they were too occupied with yours."

Asante grit her teeth and looked ready to fly at Stephanie but the doctor turned and grabbed Jon by the arm. "Well that is all I needed to know. We will leave you now in your pursuit of a bed warmer."

Stephanie did not say anything until she was out of the room and down the stairs. She then turned to Jon, "Firm rule? You are not available?"

(Some explanation)

"It is okay Jon, I saw you put her off. Well I have to say you handled that well. but what is this about Kidnapping? What are we into now Jon?"


*Meanwhile*

Catie moved to her quarters before she dared look at the now that Lilianna has pressed into her hand. She read it a few times, even though it was a short note and then said aloud, "Aiya."

She moved to the kitchen and started to fumble with a serving tray while making a plan in her head to make tea when she heard a noise. It was sorta like a venting oof gas or air. At the sound she turned around.

There, in the galley was a white figure of a woman wearing a formal dress. She wasn't very clear, more like a ghost than a person. A woman in white that seemed to be looking at Catie with a look of concern and care. Then the figure reached out her hand as if to touch Catie and then the figure disappeared like so much gossamer in the wind.
