Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: the deal.


“That’s enough!” Sung commanded as he fell within a step of the wrestling match, “You’re actin’ like a bunch o’ gorram schoolboys.”

Wyatt’s words stop Dennis from laying out Jimmy with his fist. But Jimmy, too used to doing his own thing to understand the danger in the Captain’s voice, takes advantage of the hesitation and sucker punches his opponent to the kidneys. Dennis makes a gurgling noise and slaps Jimmy across the face. Soon, Asher and Sam have wadded into the fray and pulled the men apart when the doors to the hall open wide.

“I’m sorry, am I late?”

Willow’s entrance was like a light breeze of reason flowing into the room. Dennis and Jimmy stopped fighting and moved away from each other without so much of a curse. The doctor, lit from the back and side by the light of day to capture her allure and beauty, captured the attention of most of the people in the hall, though mostly the men.

“Miss Willow.” JW smiled as he stood up to take her hand and lead the young lady into the room, “I’m afraid that you didn’t walk in during our finest hour, but we are always glad to see you.”

Jimmy attempts to offer his seat to Willow but Chad is there faster, and with an honest if slightly bashful smile. She looked around the room, taking the faces, gestures and body language of everyone she could see. Nora radiated the hostility of an insecure woman, afraid that another pretty woman could take her prize. Brigit, for a moment had a slight smirk to her face, like a cat that just caught a canary. It was gone in an instant, but Willow could not help but feel she just walked into a trap. JW finishes introducing everyone to Willow, telling all that she’s the ship’s doctor.

“JW, Darling? Shouldn’t we get the meeting going?” Brigit interjects lightly, “I’m sure that Miss Willow will get to know as many of the men here as she can before the day’s end.”

“Hmm? Oh yes. Where were we?”

“A sheriff.”

“Oh right. Now Jimmy is right. I have heard of this young fella in Newhouse as well. Pearson.”

“Why are we paying taxes and a sheriff?” Nora asked impatiently “Alliance has to serve the people.”

“I’d prefer a sheriff I can see and talk to than a patrol that may or may not be on the planet.” CC said plainly, “Besides, why did we build a jail if we ain’t gonna have a sheriff?”

Charles stood up, “Listen, I see the people of this town, I talk to them. If you didn’t notice from the disturbance at the bank yesterday, they are wanting a sheriff.”

“How we paying for one?” Sherm asked whiningly.

“If we had a proper Guild Representative, elected by the miners, we could have the backing of the guild to finance a sheriff.” Chad said.

(You may interject your own opinion)

The arguing and ranting continue this way for awhile. With Nora pushing for alliance, Sherm complaining about money and everyone else pushing for a sheriff, a solution seems to be hammered out between the shouting and the egos.

“Well now. I think we can agree on this.” JW said while standing up with arm ups to signal an end to his patience, “We will ask Captain Wyatt to take three of us to Beylix to talk to this deputy and see if we can convince him to come our way. John, Sherm and CC will go as delegates to Newhouse. One more passenger will be Chad, who will hold his election today, and then go to the Beylix miner’s guild house to ratify the vote and therefore gain the guild support in this mess. Captain? You up for four paying passengers to Beylix and back?”

“Five!” interjects Jimmy, “I would like to book passage as well.”

“Huh? Why do you want to go to Newhouse, Jimmy?” Nora asked.

“I have some business there,” He replied stretching out his legs nonchalantly.

Everyone looks at Jimmy as if waiting for an explanation. When none comes JW shakes his head, “As long as it’s your dime Jim-boy. Fine, five passengers at standard rate Captain?”

(It will be two and a half days to Beylix, a day for the job, and two and half back. That’s 160 to 200 credits a person.)

“Whoa! Hang on a sec JW.” Bailey says, “We gonna need more ice by then. We already burned through a good chunk to get started. We don’t want to run dry or we have to dry start again.”

“How long?”

“Two weeks at best.”

JW mused for a bit. “Can you go to Beylix and back, drop off the Sheriff and get over to the comet again to grab ice and be here within two weeks?”

(Sam will answer no. Six days to B and back, then three days to comet, one day of ice cutting and three days back – no way considering if they landed and left alliance would be sure to board them)

“Damn! We need that gorram ice.”

“What if you were to drop off the sheriff in a shuttle along with the others?” Brigit asked, “You wouldn’t have to break atmo, and save a day. Those alliance ships aren’t going to be interested in a shuttle. Then you go to the comet and get back in time?”

(Sam calculates that in his mind and agrees. That would put you just within the two week range, although the sooner you leave the better. He agrees Alliance patrol won’t bother with a shuttle as it is too small to carry ice.)

Well Captain? I don’t want them purple bellies stopping my mine from operating. If you’ll do this, I’ll pay you 3000 for the ice. Three times what you came here for! Plus the fees for passengers? Is it a deal?”

“What are we gonna do until then?” Charles ask, “Two weeks of this lawlessness getting worse and worse. If the bank job wasn’t bad enough? What if a bunch decides to grab the payroll?”

“I’ll stay. I’ll be sheriff until they come back.” Asher interjects and then turns to Wyatt, “They need help Captain and I can’t stand by. Anyway, it will just be until the shuttle comes and then I can keep an eye on it until you return. I ain’t leaving the ship, just – just want to help these people, that’s all, Captain. I know what its like to be alone and no one to look out for ya. It ain’t right.”

OOC: Please note - this is to temporarily write Blammm out of the game. I do hope he will return soon.

The Who’s Who in Frisco

A brief run down of important people in Frisco that you have met so far. In brackets is a "visual aid" actor if you’d like to google – taking into account the age of the character. IE: Burt Lancaster in Field of Dreams, Meg Foster in Osterman Weekend, Keye Luke in Kung Fu...)

JW McClarin – Mine Owner, Senator and the de facto leader of the town. A good man, honest, straight dealing from all you’ve seen. (Powers Boothe)
Bailey Sacket – Engineer. JW’s right hand man in the mine. Keeps everything running and is the one JW trusts with the money. He has Bowden’s Malady but it is under control. (Joss Ackland)

John Blake – Bank Owner. A short balding man with no ambition or drive beyond saying “Yes Dear.” (Timothy Spall)
Jimmy Blake – Self described ladies man. Son of the Banker who enjoys spending the money that his parents have made – he is pampered, prissy and those are his good points. (Pierce Brosnan)
Brigit Trousdale – Trouble in so many ways. A dutiful woman waiting on her man or a treasure seeker hussy with a dagger ready to plan firmly in your back? (Christina Hendricks)
Charles Caesar – Newspaper man. Looking for a good story to sell the papers. Truth is all in perception. (Jeffrey Jones)
C.C. Fiddler – Hotel owner. An Attendee of the Town Meeting (Bruce Campbell)

Doc MacGuire – Local doctor. Takes care of his people well. Still mourns the death of his wife and has a secret drinking problem that isn’t too much of a secret. (Burt Lancaster)
Albert Morgan – Bank Teller. Recovering from shock. (Wallace Shawn)
Lau Tsu – The Tong leader. A harden criminal or a man with a desire to serve his people? (Mark Alan Dacascos)

Topic: Who Watches The Watchmen?
Subject: my review


The film is excellent. It is very intense, very graphical violent and it doesn't hold back on making the audience think about the message of the film. I would say that a lot of the bad reviews you see are because of this high moral and intellectual challenge. If you go expecting a comic book popcorn movie - you'll be disappointed. Very dark - makes Dark Knight look like Singing in the Rain.

The actor who plays Rorschach is fantastic - gets the character spot on from the book. Same with Nite Owl and to a lasser extent, Dr. Manhattan. I loved how they did the history of the earlier heroes through the credits. Good soundtrack as well.

It is faithful to the book up to the ending. However, I thought this ending was better than the books, which always seemed contrived to me.

Complaints? - it was rushed at the end. They could have added more but the film was close to three hours already.

Highly recommended but DO NOT take the kids.

I have been hit by a couple of pieces of bad news. A friend has had his house flooded from a burst pipe while he was away on vacation. Major structural damage - three ceilings are collasped. Another friend battling lung cancer has found out that the cancer is deep in his bones as well.

So, I haven't been posting much. I have not given up, nor am I abandoning the games. Just bear with me.

Old Sean lived alone in Ireland. He wanted to dig his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, Mick, who used to help him, was in an English prison.

The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament:

Dear Mick,

I am feeling a mite down because it looks like I won't be able to plant me spuds this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me.

Love, Dad



A few days later he received a letter from his son:



Dear Dad,

For CHRIST'S SAKE, don't dig up the garden! That's where I buried all the BODIES!

Love, Mick



At 4 A. M. the next morning, a dozen local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden down to a depth of about six feet. That evening, not finding any bodies, they apologized to the old man and left.



The next day the old man received another letter from his son:



Dear Dad,

Go ahead and plant yer spuds now. It's the best I could do under the circumstances.

Love, Mick

Subject: signs on car


A man was being tailgated by a stressed out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

He said, 'I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him.' I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk; naturally ... I assumed you had stolen the car.'

Subject: What happened to yesterday if tomorrow didn't come.


“What day is it, anyway?” Dapple asked.

The old man looked at the pretty lady and back at you, the exepression on his face clearly describing how dumb he was thinking you all were, “What day is it? What kinda question is that?” It’s Moonday. The 4th of Mordan if you must know.”

The date surprises you all. That would be the day you left Freegate. In fact, since it was clearly morning here, it would be almost the precise moment that you left Freegate. But if that was true, then how could you be here. How much of what passed the three days was real?

"Good sir," Arien spoke, "allow me to offset the damages we have caused here." With that, the knight reached into his purse and withdrew a generous sum for the damaged crops. The farmer gladly accepts the money, after quickly testing on of the cions with his teeth.

“Much obliged Ummm, Mister Knight. We don’t get folk like you people around here much. Not since Zepher was destroyed. Timing’s good though. Them there priests up the hill haven’t come down for a spell. They usually trade with us – you know, goods for healing and the like. But they haven’t come down for a long while and the town was about to have a council to talk about doing something. That’s what councils do, don’t ya know – talk about doing thing instead of just going up the hill and knocked on the door, asking “hey! You priests need to eat or anything? Cause my back is hurting a peck of trouble and I got good corn here.” He laughed to himself pleasantly.

(add any questions or comments here. I will answer afterwards)

“Anyway if you want to talk to the council, you can head directly into town. Can’t miss the place – it’s the one with the really big chimney.” He says pointing towards town. The big chimney he refers to is visible form where you stand – it is the same chimney the two brothers were standing upon when you encountered them in your dream.

“I don’t know. I woke up… in pain. Or maybe the pain came later… I can’t really remember. I can’t remember a lot of things.” He staggered closer, feet dragging through the washing blood on the grey streets. “I know my name though. I’m Herman.”

Herman? He thought. It was the last name he expected to hear although he couldn’t have told you what he expected in the first place.

“I’m Cathedral.” He replied, “And it was the same for me. Pain and then this – like I was …” he trailed off looking around him. It all seemed so unreal. “If there are the two fo us, could there be more? What is this place?”

Cathedral looked own at the serpents tattooed on his arms. The strange light of this land played tricks on his eyes, as the serpents seemed to writhe as if in ecstasy. Don’t let the serpents touch

Doctor Pierce saw the Ensign get to his feet and wave him off. That was enough for him, if the patient was conscious enough to make decisions in a combat situation, then that meant leaving him by triage rules. The doctor continues to move to the Vulcan, hoping for the best but expecting the worst. As he approached, his fears were realized.

Kavk’s environment suit was torn in places and Pierce could see the green blood already seeping through the wounds. He ran as quick of a scan as he could concerning the situation, and it was all that he needed. Internally injuries in multiple places, the spinal cord severally damaged in a number of places, brain functions were shutting down. Kavk wasn’t going to make it and nothing Pierce could do here would save him. He looked the Lieutenant in the eyes, and with a single shake of the head told the Vulcan all he needed to know. Kavk was struggled to speak so the Doctor leaned over to listen to the dying man’s words.

"There has to be a Dominion facility nearby. The--the shuttle sensors were detecting large energy signatures five point two--five point two kilometers north east of our position. This--this is the...only way...to contact...Guardian."

With that his eyes lost focus and his head dropped to the side, green blood frothing from his mouth.

“Damn it!” Pierce exclaimed loudly. He activated his communicator, =^= “Guardian. This is Doctor Pierce! Request Emergency Evac - Stat!”=^=
