Destiny Galley Day Two of Journey. 9:45 am ST

"I WANT DANIEL!!!!" Lilianna cries out through the tears.

"Daniel?" AJ says his eyes going wide.

"Daniel?" Rick repeats with the same expression.

Seth came running into the room with his gun held up. He sees that Lilianna is crying about Daniel and is confused, He goes to speak but ...

Angela leaps through the air swiftly and silently. Of all the people on the boat that Seth had seen and summed up as a threat or not, Angela was at the very bottom. He had virtually dismissed her as a labourer. He tries to step back but she is upon him too fast.

“Angela no don’t kill him!” JC called out.

“Angela...wait” Tess called out. “Looks like Seth is just here to help and he lower his gun because there is no danger right now.”

A swift chop knocks the gun into the air and then Angela hits it again with her hand, doing something rapidly that sends the gun flying across the room but away from everyone else. Seth punches at Angela's face and move to get some space but Angela rolls her head to avoid the punch and brings up her elbow into Seth neck just as he is beginning to call out, "Qiā ---"

Seth moves back to round house kick Angela and she spins with the blow, staggered by the blow. Seth takes the opportunity to leap for the gun and calling out for it again. It did not come to his hand like JC had seen before. But Angela was not slowed by the attack, in fact it was a feint to let Seth put himself where she wanted him. She hit him hard in the back, a sharp blow and a twist of her hand and then he became completely stiff and fell to the floor like a sack of potatoes.

"I didn't kill him." Angela says calmly, "He is just paralysed for the next 4-5 hours. Less if you apply ice to that nerve." She tossed the battery pack from Seth's gun on the ground beside the fallen bodyguard.

Stephanie walked into the galley, Good morning everyone I hope the ..." she stopped and looked at the scene of the fight, Liliana crying, the brothers looking tense and Angela poised like a cat ready to pounce. "Oh my. Is this the fun part? Are we having fun?" She said quietly and then yelled loudly, "JON!!!!! WHERE IN THE GORRAM HELL ARE YOU!!!!!???????"

She moved through the room and came to Seth's side, "Someone get my bag from the infirmary please." She said firmly and then looked up at Angela and asked, "What exactly did you do to him?"

What door do you mean by the right? Assuming that north is the top of the map, you came in through the East, the rats exited to the West.

Subject: right right?

Ivan picks at the food at the table but finds some of the rarer if the roast suiting his palette. His dignity stung by the dish of cat food, he grumbles beneath his breath through the meal. Everyone else finds the food to be excellent and no one has any adverse effects from eating.

"I be seein' no way to know what door leads to good things, lads. With that in mind, I says we go to the right, as left be bad luck, and them foul rats be waitin' through the straight course."

"Your Right or my right?" Ivan asks, "Cause dude, my right would be the door we came in through and I don't want to be steamed again. Or were you talking the metaphorically right bacuase I lean to the left if you catch my meaning. I'm all for not following the big bad rats though. What is dead and all that. Yuck."

I hope to have a posting weekend and move all my games forward. If you want to pick a door now, it would be good.

I hope this will be a posting weekend for me. Moving all games forward. It's time to prove to your friends that you're worth a damn. Sometimes that means dying, sometimes it means killing a whole lot of people.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: there is a lot to explore

Certainly you can examine and start to explore the mystery that is Angela. I really do not want to be the one driving that through an NPC (Stephanie) which is why I brought Catie onboard.

It will not be an instant reveal. Clues and hints will be dropped but it is a lot like River meets Dollhouse meets Cybersix with some Matrix thrown in.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Language

The commands would have to be given like commands. So if school is our came in conversation it would not trigger Angela. The other aspect is what language?

Even if you did all have the commands, there is a girl shrieking, brothers shouting and all sorts of noise that will cancel out speaking.

I think that everyone is doing their roles just fine. I did not expect Angela to attack but it is within character.

Subject: My error

I wrote the intro on my own without input from Mmv. When I discussed it with her, she made a very clear argument that she would not share the commands. So my mistake. As I said, I apologize for misleading anyone.

Topic: Traveller game interest?
Subject: Sorry people

As much as I have tried to get into the Traveller universe and produce a game for you, I am finding it impossible for me to carve out the time needed to prep and create an adventure in a rule system that I just learned. I gave it my best shot but this is not working. If I try to plow through to get the game going, I know I will be constantly doubting my work, double checking rules and all my other games will suffer.

Sorry to have got you all excited with the possibility but I can not in good conscience continue. Therefore I am bowing out as the Referee in this game.

Padre - you seem to know the rules really well, so I'd suggest that you take on the GM role.

Once again, sorry for this. I know I got your hopes up but better to stop now before we start than three or four posts in having the game fizzle.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Grace share?????

No. Grace did not share the commands for Angela with anyone. Not even the captain. Grace sees the commands as a matter of human rights and would not share them. My mistake if I mis-lead people.

So Tess does not have the commands to give.

Topic: Has anyone looked into D&D 5?
Subject: as I understand it

The fifth edition rules are being called D&D. WotC are really trying to underplay the edition number

The Starter kit is due out July 15th

The Players Handbook is due out Aug 19

Monster Manual - Sept 13

DMG is ...wait for it ....Nov 18

Yes, three months after the PHB.....

However, they are releasing a Basic D&D pdf free. the date is unknown (to me) but soon. The PDF will "put the rules in the hands of as many gamers as possible at no charge". much like a heroin dealer giving out drugs free, they want to hook you and then charge.

The books are $50 eacs (US) which means us non american will be looking at 65-75 per book.

The catch phrase for the new rules is "putting the dragons back into D&D" and the first modules involves ... wait for it ... Tiamat.

Yeah. I'm out.

Subject: The Backpack

The backpack is very heavy. This is mostly due to two gold statues (20 lbs each) within the pack. There are also numerous silver cutlery pieces, a large steel pitcher, a small brazier, and two arm-length ladies gloves made of red silk.

The Khord cleric takes a moment to cast a spell over the sudden feast before you. After a moment of prayer and divination, Gamard perceives that the food is clear of poisons.

I will figure out what happens. As to the Captain, you are on the Bridge upstairs, so you won;t even react until you hear the table crash, the shots fired and the bodies hit the floor.

Subject: The Al???

Angela has moved into "Ming" Mode. The commands that Catie has given are not the preset ones that will force her to respond. The flip side of that is if you use one of the preset ones, everyone in the room will hear it.

I would think that a habitat module would be big and bulky and not something that you carry around on you.

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

There is a flash of light and a loud “PAFFFT” as soon as the Mage utters the word Dinner. There are now six table settings at the table as well as a banquet of food. There is a roasted bird, carved and steaming on a platter. A roast of beef is partial carved and surrounded by roasted potatoes, carrots and onions. There are two baked fish with pink flesh (trout or salmon). Large mushrooms in a wine sauce are in a serving bowl as well as green beans in a butter cream sauce. A salad is available in a large silver bowl.

Two large soup tureens are present, one with a clear broth and the other a cream soup of some sort. Apple pie, pastries and assorted chocolate sweets are present. There is a cutting board with several different types of breads and spreads available as well.

Decanters of many different types of wine are available including the very hard to get Sylvari green wine and even rarer Khordaldrum Mushroom Wine. There are two small kegs with beer mugs next to them as well.

Ivan sniffs the table, “Whoa dude. This is some spread. But they baked the fish – what a bummer! Total waste of good fish.” Ivan then looks down on the ground near the table and reaches down, bring up a porcelain dish with a pile of brown formless meat in it. “Oh Dudes. This is major uncool! Majot uncool! I do not do fancy feast.”

Topic: Traveller game interest?
Subject: as to starting

I could post the opening by this weekend so you would all have the chance to do introductory posts.

I work on a once a week post basis. I acknowledge that many of you know the rules better than I do but I will learn as I go. That being said, I do not take well to being questioned on everything I do so if you have a query, ask but if I say that I have made a ruling - that is as far as I will argue it. If I want to kill you all, I will have the ship blow up. I am here to make a great story with you.
