Do you all have an account for funds transfers? You might if you want to be considered legit in the core, but that means you are easily tracked by the Feds whenever you make a deposit/withdawal. You will also be taxed.

If you work cash/platinum only, then you are off the books, no taxes taken and free to do as thou wilst. However, the method of payment that Brigit just suggested won't work.

Good to have you back. I would hate to kill off both Mages when the cleric in the party is about to commit assisted suicide.

Grab Dapple and run? What were you thinking Kilgim?

Subject: already there


Tann, I already sent you all your impressions of Brigit in an email with your character.

Here it is again

Brigit Trousdale - the school marm - wow, what a dish. This green eyed red head is hotter than sin with a body that won't quit. SHe's JW's finacee but he travels off world alot, so there are many rumours that she's got a wandering eye. She seemed to have an interest in you for a spell, but it faded fast when she found out you weren't a real criminal. Women, they always want the bad boys.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Moving out


Frisco 12 noon RST

It is a one room class room with desk and chairs. Upon entering, you become the object of everyone’s attention. The Captain may be looking for people holding weapons but there are only children with chalkboards and erasers, hardly a threat to anyone. Near the back and closest to you is a young boy, with black hair and a smile that would make the young girls melt. He is pushing manhood by the scraggly hairs on his lip. His eyes look you all over rapidly before fixating on Willow with barely disguised teen lust.

Near the middle are two twin girls, with done up blond hair and blue eyes. They are prettily dressed up in the exact same frilly white dresses. One has a blue ribbon in her hair, while the other has a pink one, other than that, they are exactly the same. You place them to be about 9 or ten. They look over the party as well and start whispering and giggling to themselves.

Near the front is a younger boy, small with freckles and brown hair while wearing thick glasses that magnify his eyes. His eyes are drawn to the pistol on Wyatt’s hip, but the glasses make it hard to realize whether he’s scared or fascinated.

“Ma’am,” Wyatt drawled. “Name’s Wyatt Sung, and I was told you and I needed to talk. This here,” he motioned loosely with his right hand to those who followed him. “Are my crew: Ms. Willow Takahara, Mr. Sam Dash, and Mr…Wolf. If you’ve the time, we’d be mighty obliged to you.”

“Ahh we know each other Cap'n Hi, Brigit, nice day huh.” Fenris comments.

It is only a moment, but Willow sees the look on Miss Brigit’s face change ever so slightly and then instantly back. Only a trained observer would have spotted it (it’s in the eyes), but then it takes one to spot one. Whoever this woman was, she was trained in a similar fashion as Willow, to read and perceive people. Birgit was planning to turn on the charm to the captain but realize something in his cold stare and decided to change tactics.

“Mister?” The young boy asks suddenly, “Where did you get the antique?” He asks pointing at the pistol on Wyatt’s hip. “That’s an Independence’s Officer Pistol isn’t it?”

(Take this where you wish, it is for RP and the kid can be wrong with the glasses he’s wearing)

“Billy!” the School Marm declares, “Now, you mind your manners. No man likes to have his equipment pointed at!” She laughs throatily.

She turns and puts down her chalk and addresses the class, “I have to talk to these gentlemen, so that will be all for today. Off now to do your chores and mind your parents.”

The children leave, grudgingly.

“Well, pleased to met you all.” Brigit says as way of a greeting, “Since you came to see me, this must be about the …containers.” She smiles prettily, “You all thrown me for a bit of a loop now as I was expecting someone else and sooner than this. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad to see you and to get the containers, but I plum almost had given up hope. I mean, Wolf, if you knew they were coming, why didn’t you say anything?”


(Assuming you bring up payment)

“Ah, well you’ll have to let me head up to the bank and I’ll arrange a bank transfer. I had the money a week ago, but I didn’t want to be sitting on it here, what with how things are around here. Why don’t you all head back to your ship, wait for bailey and his men to unload to containers, and I’ll make the arrangements.” She smiles all sweet and pretty.


OOC: Blammm, if you are still in, let me know and I will start up with what is happening at the ship. I have been away awhile but should be back now.

Dealing with Brigit. Willow knows there is something about her that ain't right. Wyatt gets the feeling she is nice enough, but Wyatt doesn't trust anyone he don't know well enough. Sam is deep in lust and would do anything for her in hopes to getting into that skirt.

Okay. I am back now and feeling good. Weather is playing havoc on my time as I seem to be spending a lot of time trapped on buses and shovelling snow. (So ... much ... snow...)

Anyway. I have taken a day off this Friday and have Monday off for the new Ontario holiday - Family day. So I plan to update all my games at this point.

Hopefully I haven't lost anyone in my two month absences.

Topic: Suggest tools for the Inn!
Subject: Summoning Too


You could also add to a wandering monster table, an option for monster summoning spells as well. My daughter plays a mage and she has brought Monster Summoning to an artform. To have a handy tool to generate the summonees would be great (Summonies? Summoned? Summonites?)

Topic: Suggest tools for the Inn!
Subject: wandering monster strength


I would think a good formula for monster vs party is that wandering monster levels should be equal to party combined level plus number of people in the party.

Or is the combined level plus appendages?

Topic: The Official Red Dragon Inn Name Generator thread
Subject: Khords are fun


To do the khord name generator, you need three parts:

First name - One to two syllables that are basically gutteral. Ira, Dain, Barak, etc

First half second name - A hard substance or tool. Granite, Stone, Iron, Axe, Pick

Second half second name - A violent action or body part. Smasher, crusher, bender or foot, hand, toes.


There you go. Dain Ironfoot, Barak Granitesmasher, Jarl Picknose.

Topic: Suggest tools for the Inn!
Subject: I could use a hammer


I would love to see a Wandering Monster generator. One where you type in the level of your party, haw many members and their levels. Then it will create a grouping of monsters suitable to that party.

"Hi. We're Wandering Monsters. let's fight!"

Topic: LoTF
Subject: Oh yes


I remember Lord of the Flies from high school. I did not enjoy the book. I felt Golding was extremely heavy handed in his approach to the story. I put this in my top three books I was forced to read in high schoool that I didn't enjoy or find value within. The other two were Heart of Darkness and The apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz.

If you are "doing" the book for your studies, I would advise you read it and perhaps a few critiques on it. There are many on-line.

Things I remember:

- names are very significant in the story. Right down to the meaning of the name or who they were in the bible. Simon, Roger, Piggy, Ralph, Jack etc.

- The whole book is loaded with symbolism, most of it very unsubtle. All due respects to Golding though, the art of allegory was still a new concept in his times.

- Book is a product of its time. Cold war, fear of atomic war, questioning of authority and the base evilness of man.

- There is another book written in the 1800's that many believed Golding's literally stole the concept from. I can not remember the title or author though. "On the Beach" pops into my head but I think that is not it.

- Some of Golding imagery is amazing. I especially remember the choir described as a black serpent when the boys arrive.

Does this help?
