Subject: Mana


I really need to write this up properly....

Man is a system of spell points that you use instead of memorizing spells. a first level spell is 1 point, 2nd level is 2, etc etc.

Mana is calculated by taking the 2nd edition mage spells allowed chart and adding them together based on the above points. So if you would have had 4 first, 3 second and 2 third; your mana would be 4+6+6=10. Then add a bonus for every intelligence point over 15. Thus with an 18 intelligence, the above example would be 4+6+6+3=13. If a mage runs out of mana, then he/she can still cast spells at the cost of hit points. This leads to risking Wizard's twilight and death.

Mana can not be shared, passed on, or whatever. There are no potions of mana, or outlets to plug into. There are artifact that will give you a bonus in mana (a ring of +3 mana) and extremely rare as mana multipliers (X2 mana bracers). There are rumours of a evil class of mages called Incantresses that can rob others of mana and the spells out of their heads, but you haven't met one yet. And no, the third part of the campaign will not be a romp through one of their hidden lairs. (promise)

Clerics don't use mana. They can choose from any prayer they are allowed as per the 1st edition system (I think)

Does that help?

Fenris - you are wounded but not critical. As I said before, you are at the D&D equivalent of seriously wounded (50%). You can walk, shoot a gun, or whatever, just not as fast as you would normally.

Brakes - The brakes work, but they ain't gonna hold forever. I would advise you treat the mule as wounded, but not critical (same as the driver ).

Stage mule - interesting idea. I didn't think of that.

The crucial piece of info you don't have yet, and I will do a small post to recify, is that the teller and Sam need help now. The ship may be too far away. Furthermore, if there is an alliance "eye" on this area, going back to the ship is gonna lead them right to the ice.

The doc's office is less than 60 feet away through the back door, and he does have a fully stocked and relatively modern operating room. So let me post that so you can act upon it. I was hoping that Vanadia would be able to post first but she is busy with work right now.

I have been asked by a player in my other campaign if there might be room for another in the party. Blammm is a fantastic player, and if you read any of his posts in Voyages of Rocinante, you will see what I mean. He truly takes a simple concept character (gunslinger) and adds depth and colour through his writing.

So, are all of you up for an 8th member? If so,what do you feel you need as Blammm is open to anything. More magic? More healing? Archer? Tinker, Tailor???

Let me know.

Robert - Simple rule of D&D - Mages don't charge into battle when they have an AC of 7, and fighting creature with multple missile attacks. Both mages did it in this campaign and look what happened.

Subject: and now, the end is near, and so we face, the final curtain


Okay. The second part of the campaign is almost over. The third stage can start as soon as you get back to Freegate and I can write and "woof" moment to move you all forward.

Now, if you are looking to get out of the campaign, now is a good time. I know most of you are still very interested, but I also know that RL sucks us out of good games sometimes. I would love (hope) to head out to the next campaign with the same group, minus one flatten mage.

Robert - You have first shot at creating a new character to join the party. Could be another mage, or something else completely - although you do need some firepower. I may allow another person to join if necessary.

Subject: I killed another mage!


Kilgim looked over Alloryn, “There is little that I can do for her Arien. Just like with Shona, the demon that possessed her has worn out the body and injured her soul. She is strong, she will recover but we need to get her back to Freegate. She needs a better priest than I.” The dwarf sighed and grasped Arien’s shoulder lightly in friendship, “We’ll build a litter to carry her home”

Char fires at the fleeing Mantis Warrior astride its dragonfly. Both arrows find their mark in the belly of the mount. This causes the creature to slow, desperately trying to stay aloft with its rider.

Adrian is able to catch up with the slowed beast and attacks the Thri-kreen. The Mantis Warrior is skilled at fighting and flying, and manages to deflect the blows away before delivering a deep cut across Adrian’s belly. The mage is staggered by the blow and wavers in his flight.

Char continues to fire and one of his arrows strikes deep enough to kill the dragonfly. The mount spirals out of control to the earth. The lone mantis attempts to leap off for safety but there is only so much its legs and body can handle at it dies upon the impact with the ground.

Adrian has only enough strength left to make it to the ground before loss of blood causes him to lose consciousness.

Kilgim was on his feet and moving towards Adrian before he hit the ground. The cleric wasn’t about to lose another companion on this day and when he reached the battle-mage, he was ready with a healing spell to stop the bleeding and restore health to the young man. Adrian’s eyes flutter with consciousness within moments.

The battle now over, the party is left with the scene of misfortune. Jal’s body will have to be dealt with, the rubble of the tower will have to be searched for clues to what was going on here. All would have to be done with some haste, as Alloryn needed to be brought back to Freegate as soon as possible.

It is Dapple who notices something is missing first. “Where’s the commander’s body?” the rogue questions out loud. As the others look, where the body of the commander was, is now vacant. There is still the blood stain, and bits and pieces of charred flesh and grey matter – but no body. It is as is he just vanished.

Cue eerie x-files type music

OOC: There is enough healing potions and cleric spells to heal you all back to full health. I can finish off this campaign with a big “woof” moment, but wanted to let you finished off the area before I do – there are a few finds to make. There will be no more attacks, no zombie Dalmer, or killer insects or dragons – the night will pass to dawn shortly and uneventfully.

You can drift back to consciousness on and off, fighting type that Sam is. Willow could give you a stim-pac shot to wake you, but then you'd be in a lot of pain. She may decided to sedate you as well, depending on how much of your dream you play out.

Sam's in bad shape. You took a lot of damage, more than enough to kill you if it wasn't for plot points. I wouldn't advise getting up and doing the Mambo.

I do promise that your day will only get better from here, unless Wyatt decides to stay and face an alliance squad of soldiers.Then you day might get worse....much worse.

Subject: Not enough Docs to go round


“Captain San! Where’s Sam? Is he inside? Is there anyone else in there?”

"Willow! Sam's here, and in need of your tender care. Quick, Woman! He looks like he's about done waitin'."

“This here’s Doc McGuire, and he’ll get Mr. Wolf stabilized while I go check on everyone inside, isn’t that right, doctor?”

"One in there for you too, Doc," Wyatt drawled as he stepped away from the door and caught sight of the man's doctorin' bag.

“Thank you kind sir,” the doctor said politely as he passed Wyatt, “I like to believe that anyone wounded or sick is for my attentions.” The doc gives the captain a quick once over, looking for injuries and finding none. He also looks over Ethan but merely hakes his head sadly before getting to Wolf.

“Now there, Wolf isn’t it?” The doctor says pleasantly as he opens his bag and begins removing bandages and equipment. “No need for you to give me the next of kin, young man, we’ll have you right as rain in no time. You might think there’s a lot of blood here, but you got plenty more.” He begins to examine the wound with a gentle touch. “Nice driving by the docks, by the way.”

As John Blake rushes into the bank in a panic, Cora walks up towards the doctor. “Doc? How are you feeling right now?” She asks tentatively.

The doctor doesn’t look up from what he is doing, as he starts to unwrap the bandages. “Feeling fine Mrs. Blake,” He says in a level but annoyed tone, “You?”

“Well…other than the bank and all, okay. You sure you are okay doc? Wouldn’t want you to ..”

“I said I was fine, Cora.” The doctor remains focused on bandaging Wolf’s shoulder. “Or are you trying to say something?”

“No Doc, it’s just that….”

“It is mid day Cora and my condition is frankly – private. Or did you wish to have a conversation about things that both you and I would prefer to be private? We could talk to John.” The last part came out as a definite threat, and Mrs. Blake pales visibly at its mention and shuts up.

“You put your hand here,” the doctor said to Wolf, putting hand on the bandaged wound, and ignoring Cora Blake. “Put as much pressure on it as you can bear. It will hold you until I can get you to my office.”

“I thought I'd seen you somewhere before," Wyatt crouched next to Ludlow, "You look like your brother--got that same reckless way 'bout you where other's lives are concerned. Funny thing, Ludlow, I put your brother down same as we put you down. Guess you two really were somethin' of a pair after all."

Ethan’s face shows the shock of hearing of his brother’s demise. He tries to reach for his gun but it is too far away and he is too weak to reach.

Wyatt remained impassive as he made to rise, his eyes locked with the man who'd caused them so much recent grief. Then he paused, "Tell me somethin', Ludlow. Why was your brother lookin' fer a Sam when I split his brainpan?"

Ethan looks at his killer intently as the final pains of his death overwhelmed him. All he could do before dying was to whisper faintly, “Her……”

"The least you could do after all this damage is confirm with me that you ain't got no more brothers..." Wyatt muses. He then looks over at JW and Brigit. The lady is crying softly in the man’s arms. "You OK ma'am?" he intoned in his same deadpan drawl. Receiving his answer, Wyatt raised an eyebrow to JW, while rolling his ruined hat in his hand. "I trust your ship is OK. Ventin' as she was, you had us a might concerned.”
JW gives a slight smile, “Ship’s fine. The crew spotted yours trying to shadow us in. I thought you might be the ones with our containers so I asked the Captain to make a diversion to let you get by. Glad it worked, even if we had to suffer them purple bellies mucking about for hours with the ship.”

As if on cue, the tell tale thunder clap in the clear skies reveal that a ship just entered atom in a hurry. “Damn it!” JW cursed, “I knew it! They probably detected the explosion. Captain, I would rather that them boys had no reasons to be asking you questions or even attaching your ship to the scene of the crime, if you catch my drift.”

Meanwhile, more and more people have started to arrive at the bank. The crowd jostles around for a look-see and the voices from the mob can be heard.

“They robbed the bank?”

“Them Ludlow boys were always bad news.”

“Who is that? We got a sheriff?”

“Sort of scruffy for a sheriff.”

“A sheriff? Praise be!”

“Time for good old fashion law and order now.”

“Start hanging and then they’ll see.”

“it’s good to have a Sheriff.”

Inside the Bank

Willow entered the bank to view the damage. Her eyes found Sam in an instant, and notes that despite looking shot up and beaten, he was still breathing. She forced herself not to panic and quickly checked all the other men for vital signs while Asher covered her. The two who were obviously brothers were dead. The man near Sam was so shot up that death was only a mercy to him.

Sam’s ballistic vest was badly damaged. It would have to be cut off and would never serve to protect again, but it did its job. But the bruising and swelling on Sam’s body screamed internal injuries. He was gonna need surgery and fast or they might lose him.

Wyatt had said there was another wounded in here, so Willow quickly looked around, and found the bank teller on the floor. His breathing was shallow and his heart beat erratic. Electrical burns were the least of his problem and the voltage had disrupted his electrocardio rhythm. Both Sam and this man needed medical attention and they might not last to the ship.

The short, round banker entered and screeched a girlish cry, “Oh my bank! They opened the vault! They might have …” He gurgles and turns beet red in the face while clutching his chest. In a second he crumples to the ground.

“Doctor!” Willow calls outs urgently, “Come quick!”

In case any of you were thinking of picking up Serenity Better Days" the comic series - don't bother unless you are a die-hard fan who has to have everything Serenity.

The story is weak, the plot is thin and there are so many loose ends that you could weave a rug with them. I was very disappointed, especially because the first part was very well done, but #2 & 3 were horrible.

There is another series coming that is suppose to be about Shepherd Book. Hopefully that one redeems itself.
