Ernest didn't have the future Miss JW as a meat shield. Complicates matters to no end I'd reckon. Although you have Asher, who is really very accurate when he shoots a gun.

There is always the call shot option, but wait for my post, hoepfully late today. I had a busy father's day weekend. I haven't rolled for Brigit yet, and she has all manner of tricks up her sleeve.

Well, there are 3 reasons people go to a movie. They want to see people:

1) Defying authority
2) Destroy Property
3) Take off their clothes

So we are 2 for three so far. But who to cast for Arien? Christian Bale? Tom Cruise? Matthew Mcconaughey as Char?

Subject: Kung Fu Panda


I saw Kung Fu Panda last weekend with Veronica. I wasn't expecting much, thinking that I had already seen the best parts in the trailers.

I was very surprised that it was really a very good movie. Very funny to watch, had a good message but wasn't preachy and the humour was well rounded for adults and kids. All round great movie that I will certainly buy when it comes out on DVD.

Subject: Good point


You are so close than you can see the free parking spot outside of the bank that some nice fellow must have kept safe for you.

I will do a small post today to let you know what you see as you pull up so you can make decisions on actions.(I was rushing last night to post your actions and didn't cover everything) Basically, you will see Ethan and the two brothers, attempting to leave the bank with Brigit as a hostage. There is no sign of Sam Dash.

In my post I update Willow and the Doc, the Blakes and the Stage mule, JW riding and your arrival at the bank - unless Bromern tells me otherwise, I will assume you are gonna pull up and not pass by the bank.

Eol - Sam will be able to revive himself next round. You won't feel up to a prize fight, but you can move and possibly shoot something (ain't promising anything on accuracy)

You have roughly 16 hit points, and you have lost 7. As mentioned before, the combat can be quite lethal.

However, no one is shooting at you at this time.

I know you are all anxious for the outcome. I will post to Willow once she has time to post.

Time 1:26 pm

Outside The Bank

Grant Mustard’s life story was a long list of men he had killed, women he had ravaged and machines he had “fixed up”. In Grant’s mind, the men all were deserving of death, the woman all asked for it and the machines, well the machines just needed a little love to be the best they could be.

So it meant little to the big man to sight the driver in the upcoming mule and fire off a few rounds. The Chwen deserved it for messing with his business.

Down the Main Street

As Wolf took the wheel from Asher, there was a brief wobble as he over-steered and then corrected quickly. The slight movement saved his life as a bullet hole was torn into the head rest where Fenris’ head was a second ago. The pain lanced through the mechanics left arm as he caught a bullet in the meaty part of the bicep, and another round burned passed his left shoulder blade. Wolf didn’t let the pain or injuries distract him from the task at hand, but grit his teeth and held the course for the crew.

Asher swore and opened up. The assault rifle became like a part of his arm, he didn’t truly aim as much as he felt where to shoot. With the gun set to full auto, he fired of a quick salvo that forced the shooter to duck below the dash. Bullets tore through the front plate of the mule as if the metal was paper, and in the back of Asher’s mind dawned the fact that the plating was stripped off this mule.

Grant threw himself down from the hail of gunfire and heard every “plunk” of lead tearing through his baby. “Stop shooting at my Girl!” He screamed and grabbed the single shot grenade launcher from the passenger seat. They would burn for this, he fumed in rage, and they would burn in hell. He flipped the safety with his thumb and leaped up, pointed at fired.

FOSOOSH…KA-BOOM

The getaway mule outside of the bank didn’t so much explode as take flight. The hydrogen fuel cell that was punctured several times by Asher’s gunfire was leaking profusely. The friction of the bullets didn’t set off the gas, but the grenade launcher did.
The hover mule shot like a rocket into the air, and then exploded into a fireball about a hundred feet above the bank. Pieces of mule were scattered in all direction, but luckily none so big as to do anything beyond bounce off the shingles of the nearby building.


Inside the Bank

Ethan dives for cover behind the big chairs as Sam opened up with both weapons. The Derringer missed completely but the colt drew blood from the big man as he rolled behind the chair.

The two men working on the safe had drawn guns as opened up on Sam as he moved to grab the body of Jones to use as a shield. The brothers open fire, one using two pistols and the other a sawed off shotgun. But the bullets are stopped by the teller’s wall, even the glass spiderwebs but stops the slugs. One of the brothers stops and runs to the doorway, the other runs forward to climb over the reinforced wall.

The Banker bought bullet proofing! Sam realizes his luck and quickly draws the other colt from his shield’s holster.

Ethan opens with the Python and the wallop from the round sends San back a step and almost causes him to drop his shield. Taking three rounds into the shield is making the protection weaker and weaker.

Seizing the opportunity, Ethan grabs Brigit by the hair and hauls her up in front of him. “Hey, You Cheong Bao Ho Tze Chwen! Drop them or she’s next!” He yells.

FOSOOSH…KA-BOOM

The windows all shatter into millions of pieces and fly inwards. The doorway is blow clear off its hinges and across the room. The bandit clearing the wall has to duck and leap out of the way to prevent being clobbered by the door. The sheer force is too much for Sam, being so close to the window and he is knocked to the ground and does not get up. The wind blows dirt and dust into the room blinding everyone for a few seconds.

Recovering quickly, Ethan runs full tilt to the open doorway with the two brothers closely behind, pulling Brigit by the hair along as a shield between him and Sam.

OOC: Wolf has taken 4 stun and 7 wounds. (Tann, which is a serious wound - 50% of life). Sam takes an additional 3 points of stun damage and is now unconscious.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Addendum - Willow and the Doc


Willow said,” I’m the ship’s medic; I’ll have a look at these brave musicians. C’mere boys, lets have a look at any boo boos!”

The band members, whose faces were lower than a snakes belly before, brighten at the prospect of Willow examining them. They practically clamoured over each other to describe their injuries.

While they did so, the people at the landing pad seemed to break into groups. Willow quickly could see the groupings and how the factions of the town were held together by JW, but when he was gone, they divided up again into Townies, Miners, Owners/Merchants, and the Tong.

A man came over towards Willow on his horse, stopping a short distance away and sliding slowly out of the saddle. He was a elderly man, at least 70 years, dressed is a fine suit of black and tweed that was probably about 30 years old and looking a bit worn in places. He had gray hair, when kept and a clean shaven face (picture Burt Lancaster in “A Field of Dreams”).

Her trained eye took in the man as he reached into his saddlebags and pulled out a old style doctor’s bag – very beaten and fixed in places with black electrical tape. He had a dignity to him as he walked towards her, his stride told her that he was a proud man, probably a stern one when needed. There was a sense of sadness to him, deep in the eyes that spoke to Willow’s empathic nature – a pain still felt in the heart from long ago.

“Good Afternoon Ma’am.” He stopped and gave Willow a respectful bow that touched her heart, “Did I hear you say you were a medic? I am Doc McQuire, and if it is not too bold of me to say, you are the prettiest medic I have seen in many a years. Perhaps we can look at these fine gentlemen together.” It was a statement, not a question, as if there would be no arguing his suggestion.

Subject: New post


I was rushing my last post and failed to add a section for Willow meeting the town Doc. Instead of editing my post, i will just do a small additional post to fill the gap.

On Mules - Ordinarily, there is nothing on a hover mule that will go boom. It is an electrical vehicle with a g-screen to stay aloft and a basic turbine fans for movement. So you wouldn't expect te hovermule to explode

unless....

Some people rig hovermules for racing. To get greater speed, they add a hydrogen fuel cell, same as in the ship, and set up a home made system to "turbo boost" the engine. This is not a wise thing to do, it can be quite hazardous - similar to putting a NOX system into a car today.

Sam: "I'm thinking"

Sam: "That be the part I'm thinking about!"

I understand that you met my wife a while ago when she was visiting Texas. I am Alacrity, a good friend of Tann and i believe the reasons for him coming to the inn are apparent. It is a great community, with good people sharing a common love of gaming and role-playing.

The rules are really lacking for ramming or attacking vehicles. This is one of many problems I have with this system that I have to work out my own rules.

Anyone read the Battlestar Galactica Rules that have come out supposedly using the same system as Serenity? If they are the same or similar, I may want to look them up to see if they are of any use. BSG would have to have ship to ship combat.

I had to do the map up in Corel as I don't have a scanner available.

The Frisco Bank

The front area is a porch. The Light mule is parked outside of it. Each square is 5 feet. The wall with the teller windows is only five feet high.

Jokes will lead to deduction of Plot points.

I think that Maximus must be insane with grief too if he thinks lizards are attacking. I'm quite sure that lizards are the one thing I haven't thrown at you.

Oh and by the way - Max killed a thri-kreen and an ankheg. Although I am sure that all bugs look the same in the heat of combat.

Oh, one more thing - Alloryn falling is the least of your worries Adrian... Dawn approaches

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Plot Points


Plot Points as Bro said, are points you use to help yourself do something, or save your a$$ in combat. Everyone starts with 6 and you gain points by playing your character well, especially playing your complications.

Every point point you spend give up a step up on a die added to your roll. so if you spent one point, you get a d2, if you spend 2 points you get a d4 3-d6 etc etc.

If you are wounded in combat, you can "adjust" the damage downwards the same way. Note, this has to be done immediately upon being wounded, not three posts (by me) later. Now I tend to be liberal and give 2 points recovered per die, but that is me.

As I said, everyone gets 6 to start. As I said you all have gained some more for great playing.

Wyatt - 9
Willow - 9
Asher - 9
Sam - 3 (used 6)
Fenris - 6 (just started)

Now when this campaign ends, if you have more than 6, you use the difference as advancement points to raise skills or even stats.

As to "giving" plot points - According to the book, you can do that since you have Major Leadership as an asset, as long as the goals are the same. I would rule this is the same.

As for PP for ramming, hold on a bit. You won't get to ram in this round of posting, so see what Grant does first before deciding on that. Asher is a damn fine shot and you just gave him a +2 step bonus with leadership.
