So will be sending Tann some info to get his character started soon. BTW - What is your character's full name?

I have not heard from Blammm in awhile and he has not responded to any of my PM's. If I don't hear from him soon, I may look for someone to take over Asher's character. It would be a shame because Blammm really breathed life into the Kid archtype.

So if you are out there Blammm, let me know if you are in or out. I am determined to reach the end of this module.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: back in the saddle again


The Message

Dash sat in the pilot chair, readying the ship for preflight. That was when he saw the light flashing on the communication console. He checked it out to find it was 23 messages, all from multiple sources across the Verse.

Tink He thought to himself and called up the decoding software that she’d given him. It pulled the files together into one and the display came to light. The familiar pale white face with black hair, and way too much blue eyeshadow came on and spoke.

“Hey there. Puhn Yoh You know what to do.”

Dash clapped twice, and then clapped twice again, wondering how she rigged a wave message for an audio code. She smiles slyly, with a look that would make a grown man feel underage, and continued, “Hey Sammy boy. Hope this fines you well. I looked into your shipment. Whatever it was, someone didn’t want anyone to know about it. You have shell companies going into more shell companies, laundering through government ministries that don’t really exist. Whoever was shipping it, was well connected. I lost the trail in St. Alban but there was something I noticed, well didn’t notice if you catch my drift. The trail hit every planet in the verse except one – Greenleaf. Kinda suspicious if you ask me.” She shrugged “but I can’t find a buyer beyond the usual suspects - Blue Suns and the Consortium. Ta Ma Duh

The image changes to another image of a newsreel. It is dated within the last two days. A small article blows up for Dash revealing its content. Apparently a Senator Kyle Tang was reprimanded by the senate council for the use of alliance assets in a personal matter. His Daughter lost her favourite pet, a kitten, while on Beaumonde. The Senator used his authority to authorize a military search for the cat. A lesser senator would have been stripped of title for such a violation, but Tang’s many years of service lessened the blow. However the Senator did offer to resign his position as speaker for the senate, however the senate declined to accept it. There is no mention of a bracelet in the article.

“There’s your search party Dash. Some people have more money than Dohng shee. Hope this helps.”

With that the image fades and the software begins to delete itself from the cortex.

The Meeting

Kora is able to deactivate the alliance signal on the bracelet before you leave, just so you don’t have to worry about something screaming “OVER HERE!” as you try to get pass a blockade.

Wyatt Spoke up, “All right, we ain’t provisioned for another mouth t’ feed, nor is the systems in place t’ deal with… that, “ the captain began. “Hair all over the place n’ such. What’s more is it appears t’ be someone’s pet gone astray, what with that fancy pretty about its neck. An’ judgin’ by the bauble there, I’d assume it was someone who took a position o’ like t’ the creature. So, we’ll put a lost n’ found poster up on the Feed as soon as we can… maybe it’ll fetch us a bit of a reward.”

(note – I had stated that trish took the bracelet off the kitten. So the kitten is san jewelry)

Willow really looked at the bauble, and her gaze sharpened when she noted the quality of the gemstones. Before she could get a good look, Trish told the bauble from her hand rather forcibly and carried it away. Asher then asked to look at it, Trish hesitated and then gave the bracelet over to the kid.

Willow pondered the implications of an open posting in the Feed and didn’t like what it could mean for them. She’d no reason to hide or go unnoticed, but she hadn’t missed Sam’s habit of slinking to the back of a crowd when official types were around, and the captain had a less than easy way with officials, too.

Willow asked “Captain, perhaps a discreet inquiry or two would be better for all concerned? That kitten comes from money, and money means Alliance power on Beaumonde, which is where I’m guessing we picked up our fuzzy castaway. An intermediary or two between us and kitty’s owner may be the way to go. Dodger should be feeling kindly towards me these days, let me send him a wave.”

Trish is clearly agitated about the bracelet. She hovers around anyone who is looking at it and seems to get anxious if anyone touches it for an extended period of time. She keeps taking it away from people and placing it back into her stockpot, even though the signal is now defunct. When asked what is bothering her, she just shakes her head and mimes about it being dangerous.

The Flight

The tail of the comet is fading behind the ship and with it goes the memories of the miner’s camp. Ahead of you is the Black, and somewhere a town that apparently has a powerful need for ICE.

Loading with ICE plus some fresh tomatoes and veggies for the journey, Dash takes route to Regina that will give you a view of any blockades. After a few days of the dull nothingness of space travel, Regina is comes up soon when Dash’s controls start to light up as the pulse beacons of the alliance ships are picked up.


Recog: Victorious : All2638648 – Heavy Cruiser Class
Recog: Redoubtable : All9287382 – Patrol Class
Recog: Renown : All6237828 – Destroyer Class

Attention all Ships. The transport or sale of frozen materials (Carbon monoxide, Carbon Dioxide and Methane) is strictly prohibited on Regina by order of the Alliance Council. Any ships attempting to move such items planet-side will be seized and the crews bound by law.

Have a nice day.


The three Alliance ships are in distant orbit around Regina, and any transport or frigate is being challenged, turned away or boarded. Dash’s trained pilot eye spots some immediate holes in the blockade that a good pilot could use to slip by. The Alliance is anything if predictable(Chwen) in their patrol patterns.

There is also the possibility of trying to bluff your way pass the blockade.

Right now it is work and the mail inserter machine. 16000 envelopes to stuff would go a lot faster if the inserter didn't stop after ever 10 with a new complaint (material ahead of feeder, jamm in paper feed, jam in thrrat opener, photocell is blocked, envelope throat feeder is jammed, elf needs food badly)!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sigh.

Anyway, I hope to dedicating some time this weekend to my games or maybe taking a day off next week for all this time owed.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: Where's the roof gone?


Dapple moves up the stairs expecting and ambush waiting, but comes across something else entirely. Where there should be a doorway that would lead into hallway that connects the two buildings now is open to the night sky. The roof has been partially destroyed and burns in places, the doorway is torn off its hinges and lies on the ground before you. The walls are scorched in places and you can see into the barracks where bundles and packs lie smoldering and at least a couple of green soldier lie unmoving.

As Char moves up to where Dapple is, the two warriors hear a horrible cry of pain from above. They see a burning body seemingly thrown out of a hole in the tower, near the top. The soldier plummets likes a burning comet directly towards the party and the stairwell. Rogue and Ranger deftly dodge out of the way as the body hits with a sicken crash and rolls to the bottom of the stairs to a smoldering flattened end.

For the party that hung back, it seems to be raining Greens. First one soldier, then another, and pretty soon you will be running out of enemies to kill.

Then, from the south, or the front of the building, a huge chunk of wall flies upwards towards the tower, directly at the hole where the soldier just fell. The stone chunk is obliterated before it reaches the tower by a flash of green fire from within the room at the top. Dust and pieces of rock come down upon the building and you are forced to take cover from the debris. Siege equipment? There was no siege equipment when you scouted the area and certainly not enough time to build one has passed. Magic must be being used to counterattack.

OOC: Okay people, decision time. Where to go? All the action has moved to the tower, but there are clearly some magic users near the front of the building. Most of the building remains that you are in, except for the damage where you are standing now.

There were many moments in Magma’s long life where things had gone from bad to worse. This one, topped them all.

Two arch demons walk into a bordello… pops unwillingly into Magma’s mind and he laughs at the joke. Khazadul-Barmaz! ready at hand, Magma decides that dicing with demons is best left to those with holy powers, holy weapons or just plain magic.

But Tortles … they were all his now!.

Calling upon the power of his war axe, Magma launches himself against the leader of the Tortles. Hoping that by bring down this “Leonardo”, then the rest would lose morale.

Subject: Moving on, mover out, Rawhide!


GM note –Music by Cowboy Junkies “Now I know”

An old decoy rocket carries the remains of Kenny Fulton to the stars. The rocket was part of the Maria Celestia’s hold and Hawkes had offered the use of the launcher.

“Someone should say something.” Lenny said awkwardly, knowing that it should be him but not having the words to say. He looks to Denny who just shakes his head.

Penny steps forward. Her eyes are lost to the night skies of the dome, made clear for this occasion. She starts to sing softly, beginning quietly then louder as the melody soothes the anguish.

Now I know, now I know what it means to be broken
Now I know, now I know what it means to be bared


The Marakovs were nothing special, standard to any hardware shop on the rim as was the shotgun. As for the magnum with the 8 inch barrel, now that was a collector’s piece. It would fetch a pretty penny to the right buyer and it wasn’t something anyone with sense carries as a weapon - Too big, too bulky and too much kick. The Gatling looked impressive from a distance but upon closer inspection, the grenade launcher was welded onto the barrel and held on with two sided sealing tape. There was a grenade in the tube, and as far as Wyatt could see, there was no way to remove it without arming it in the process.

Ludlow’s armour was alliance military; you could see the emblem corners where he hadn’t scrubbed all of it off. No doubt stolen as it barely fit him and had been rigged together in places to make room for his larger girth.

Nice jacket though – too bad it was now covered in dirt, blood and brain matter. Wyatt knew that this man was no bounty hunter, but he certainly had a thing for weapons.

You in the chair perceptibly sinking
I'm on my knees once again made aware
of the world out there


“I ain’t no criminal Wyatt. I have done many a things that I am not proud of during the war, but if they were hauling us off for that, then they’d be taking us away by the planetful. This smells wrong to me, like I’m being set up for a fall but hell if I know the whats or wherefores.

Grief is a word to describe the absence of feeling
Now I know, now I know what it means to be broken


“Hey there Doc.”

Willow looks down at her patient, “How you feeling Jim?”

The prospector laughs and coughs, “Couldn’t be better. Knew I’d find a way to be alone with you. I even got you to take off my clothes.” He smiles and then nods off again.

Now I know, now I know,
now I know what it means to be broken


“What are you going to do with them Sam?” Kora asked standing close to Sam.

“I think your captain had a good idea. Make them work off the damages, maybe give them a direction or two to help them. They were used and right now, I can’t find the hate in me to make them pay dearly. They already have in many ways.”

Now I know, now I know,
now I know what it means to be bared


Silence hangs between them for the moment. “I guess you’ll be leaving soon, after you all get the ice?” Sam asks tentatively.

Kora looks at him coyly, “Unless you have a better offer to make Mr. Hawkes.”

You in the chair systematically sinking
I'm on my knees once again made aware
of the world out there


“Ma! Give that back to me! It’s medical, I swears it!” Dash calls as Trish hides the bottle of rum she took from his hand. The kitten hisses as menacing as he can from Trish’s shoulder, but it comes out more as a sneeze.

Grief is a word to describe the absence of feeling

With the help of the crew and the Fultons, it doesn’t take long to load up all the containers with ice. The units are all activated and keeping the frozen gases of the comet at absolute zero. Asher and Sam are back to form after some rest and Willow’s tender attentions.

Now I know, now I know,
now I know what it means to be broken


“Captain, it has been a good time with you and the crew, but it is time for me to leave. Rocinante has been my home for awhile now, but well, I think I may have found a new home now.” Kora tries to hold back tears unsuccessfully. “Besides, with these flashbacks of mine, and the freezing up, I’m going to put you and Roc in danger one day. Remember Mack? The guy who helped us on that job, friend of Dash? He’s on Regina and I know he’d jump at the chance to sign on.”

Now I know, now I know,
now I know what it means to be broken


“Listen Wyatt,” Sam said, “Bailey wanted me to warn you that the Alliance has set up a blockage on Regina. It is the mining consortium trying to pressure the independent mine owners to work by their rules. Now they are watching but they can’t be everywhere at once. Figure a good pilot would be able to slip by without them noticing. This came up sudden like, before he could warn you. They are in dire need for this ice, so I’m sure Bailey will make good for you."

OOC: My musical montage – The ship is loaded with ice and you are ready to leave with Kora staying behind. Someone might want to ask about the cat and the bracelet/necklace that it was wearing though. Backposting is always welcome but you can now move forward to getting to Regina and the town of Frisco.

Subject: Quaff them if you got them


The battle was over for now and it was agreed by all that recovery must be quick, as the war was still going on above. Potions were brought out by those who were wounded, and quick bandaging to the few with minor wounds.

Char went to scout the stairwell, hugging the shadows to look up the passageway to see what was going on. Just as he did, something came hurling down the stairs. It wasn’t using the stairs though; it was passing over them in flight as it hit the far wall with a wet spatter.

It is the body of a green Imperial. His body looks like it was crushed under a massive amount of weight or a great pressure. The body slips to the ground at the bottom of the stairs like a boneless piece of meat, tossed by some butcher. On thing is sure though, he was like that before he hit the wall.

“I SAID STAND YOUR GROUND MEN!” rang out the shout from above - a commanding voice with a vague coarse echo to it. Whatever else the commander was ordering is lost as he switches to a lower voice and the sound above of footfalls and furniture moving becomes more pronounced. The ground shakes beneath your feet and dust falls from the beams above you. Something is shaking the tower enough to move the entire building.

Cathy saw 1408 and enjoyed it.

I saw Harry Potter on the weekend and was generally pleased with teh results. Yes, the director/screenplay writer did a chop job on it, but there was no way around that. As movies go, it worked well and I thought it was smoother than the Goblet of Fire.

It will be interesting to see how the writers deal with the next two books. Without creating a spoiler for anyone - I think that they may be the toughest of all because so much has to be shown.
