you want to throw a grenade down the full length of a football field. Try punting it instead.

A standard scope gives you +1 die rank in your skill.

BTW - Asher's "talent" is his handguns, nor rifles. Not to say he isn't good with them but your talent will not be incorporated.

Subject: Asher Answers


I am putting up these answers for everyone, just in case.

What's the distance from Asher to the Marshall and the ASREV?

The two ships are 100 yards apart. The group has gathered more less half way between the two so you are 150 feet away not counting the diagonally as you are above them.

How good is Asher's pitching arm?

You have a d10 agility and d4 in ranged weapons but d6 in athletics. So your high is 14-16 which covers Formidable feats but not Heroic.

What the delay in seconds on a smoke grenade and other grenades?

I can not see anywhere in the rules so I will apply the holy hand grenade rule of 3 seconds.

WHAT?? I'm just asking?

Yeah, you are always just asking. That is why I love you as a player

Well wouldn't you look up if a smoke bomb went off about twenty feet over your head or off the ASREV control room portal?

You would not want me in an ASREV. However to answer your question, yes that would be a normal reaction. Depends how well trained the crew member and how often they have been fooled by a diversion.

Is Tess close enough to toss a EMP into the ARSEV and can Ash see her?

Ash can see her but she is following Matherson and his two thugs and is nowhere near enough to make the sprint to the other ship.

There are no scopes or "special" sights listed and I do not remember Ody asking for one. I know I had the conversation with Albert on sights more than once.

Binoculars would be handy right now.

Tann - let me know which way you plan to go with Wolf and I will incorporate it into my post. Who knows, if you get a good roll you may do a 4 minute mile.

Ody - A post from Asher who not go amiss right now.

Destiny - Thanks Tann, thought you might step up. Right now I want to get through this particular campaign before adding another. I dropped most my games because of lack of time. No one has left me a cache of time under the mistletoe yet.

Subject: yeah we need crew


Destiny has a captain but I believe all the other players in the game are now gone. I might be able to convince Mmv to play Gracie again but she is looking at grade 12 and university admissions this year.

I would bring Stephanie back as the Doctor.

Subject: Destiny never dies


The plan at the moment is to get Tess and John to the end of this campaign either as PC or NPC and then they will be written out. Tess will receive a contact from Gracie that Destiny is flight worthy again and so forth. Maybe I will start up Destiny again at that point if I have enough players willing to stay the course.

John will be track down by the Hun and disappear under dubious circumstances and carbonite freezing.

Sifu will return to the mission.

A new pilot will be brought in, and maybe another character. We shall see.

Subject: welcome


Welcome Giddy. Thanks for joining the game. Great opening post to wrap up all that had been going on.

Tann - what you do with your character is up to you. I thought it would be a good chance to play some comedy but if you feel it detracts from Wolf, then don't do it. The way i see it, accepting and playing through mistakes is part of the role playing experience. Heck, I'd give you plot points if you did. Wyatt played through being robo-seduced. Ody played through being blown up, shot and disconnecting the power during a thrill chase scene. Maybe Wolf will decide to hoof it to the the camp instead of admitting he forgot (he has d8 in Vitality and willpower). It is only a mile, so for someone in shape it would be what - 6 minutes? Maybe he'll decide that flying can't be that much different from driving if you keep low, like a hovermule. Either way I would reward you with plot points for making it a good story.

I say leave it. Once again, perfect role playing moment. Mistakes happen in the heat of battle and crisis.

Bwahaha!


Apollo doesn't have pilot as a skill. He can drive but not fly. However I do think that him running down to the shuttle and realizing this will be an absolutely genuine Role playing moment.

Thanks for the offer Albert but handing Sifu to a player is similar to handing River over to a PC. Next thing you know, they've killed every Reaver in the room. Rob and I had a plan for working the monk and I doubt Robert will be back soon.

Subject: knowing and not knowing


Just want to clarify some knowledge that characters have and do not before the proverbial shit hits the fan.

Only Tess and Jessie know that the cases are switched and that the musician is not carrying the one he thinks he is. As well, they are the only two that realize Matherson knows about the switch as well.

Asher knows Matherson and his goons wanted the case but does not know about the switch.

Willow had prior knowledge of this cruise as she was invited to join Cameron before the adventure started. Willow has just had an epiphany and thinks she knows what is in the case (Musician's case that is)

John and Wolf have no idea what is going on at the camp other that a ship with Fed marking has landed and Tess just sent a distress call.

The GM has no idea what you people are going to do next but has several NPC's to run with different agendas. My challenge is Sifu. He is there, in the thick of things and has some skills that can help. I don't want to play him over an active player though. However I can not have him standing around either. So I am gaming on that fine line between story telling and telling the story.

Subject: Guns may not be the answer


As a GM, let me assess your situation. You have a hostage used as a shield with three armed men with automatic weapons. You have a ASREV with guns trained on your ship/home/sniper's rest. You have a crowd of people that may panic and do gods knows what any time. Wyatt and Willow are very close to the action and could be in serious danger.

Tess knows that the Thugs are armed and moving to intercept because the musician has the "wrong" case.

Jessie just hid the "right" case on your ship.

John and Wolf are a mile away.

Subject: Very tense!


LV-426, Emergency Landing Field 8:15 am PT

“I appreciate the niceties, Marshal Dillon. I ain’t no rancher, an’ these are no cattle. Truth be told, I’m not so fond of the imposition that’s been placed on me an’ mine, let alone the damage t’ my ship that keeps me rooted t’ this mudball barely livin’. We’ve been busy seeing t’ the likes o’ shelter an’ rescue; a manifest would have been shiny, but we’ve not had Buddha’s Blessing so far as being able to find the time t’ put one together.” Wyatt used his left hand to slowly adjust his hat so that the brim rested lower across his brow. “Funny that this Five Star Company--Zhufu ni fer showing up--would send a fully manned ASREV that’s capable of nothin’ more than the relative comfort of those that are currently before more an’ what’s surely left aboard t’ retrieve these very fine people that are causing no end of sweating instead of a shuttle. Oh. An’ you noticed that there’s some sort of static on the signal have you? We was wonderin’ after that ourselves.”

As Hood moved out towards the Marshall, Willow moved in with a grace and presence to the side of the Lord, “Well now, what have we here?“ Willow purred as she looked the marshal up and down frankly. “You are most definitely a sight for sore eyes, Admiral ….?”

“Admiral?” the marshal questioned. “No Ma’am. Matt Dillon, Federal Marshal--the first man they look for and the last they want to meet. It's a chancy job, and it makes a man watchful...and a little lonely." He said with an easy smile before turning back to Wyatt, “No manifest? Okay. Do you have any members of the Five Star Orchestra? The musicians?”

Wyatt’s head tilted just slightly to the side, “We’ve the sort that toots horns and puts a bow to string, Marshal. Though, I’d never heard of an orchestra being referred t’ as VIP. Wouldn’t you be more interested in the likes of Lord High-n’-Mighty Hood here, or that blessed little hen that’s been followed about by a bunch of chickadees what since we plucked them from the wreckage?”

“Whoa. Relax Captain. Just doing what I’ve been told.” Dillon replied looking around him at the crowd forming, it was clearly putting him on edge to have so many people close up to him. He raised his hands and called out in a loud voice, “CAN I ASK EVERYONETO TAKE A FEW STEPS BACK PLEASE!!!”

The crowd shuffled around a bit but no one really moved. They were all a buzz about being rescued and how they were all gonna fit into the one ship.

Willow swayed just a bit against Lord Hood. "Miss Willow? Are you unwell?" Lord Hood asked anxiously, seeing tears in the doctor’s eyes.

"No, no, I'm fine, Lord Hood, just remembering the last moments before the ship blew. So many brave crew members, bringing out passengers....and running back in to save more! It was just horrible, wasn't it, Lord Hood,“ Willow dabbed at her eyes delicately, even as her voice rose slightly," I don't think a single crew member made it onto our ship. I do hope some made it onto the lifeboats. We did see some clear the blast, didn't we, Captain?"

“Look here Captain, I don’t have time for this. “ Dillon said curtly, looking around at the crowd, and beyond a glance at Willow’s fallen form, ignoring her distress. “I need the first violin player and I need him here now! He’ll have a case on him and trust me when I say, he is very important, Dohn ma?

“That would be me sir!” a voice called out and the small man named Justin carrying the silver case stepped forward with Sifu following him closely, “Trust me Captain Sung, the Marshall is correct. What I carry is very valuable.”

Dillon stepped forward to approach the Musician but at that moment Portia Amber moved out of the crowd to come right in front of the Marshall and stop him in his tracks.”What do you mean you are here for some useless fiddle player! There is no way that I and my daughter are staying on this dirtball for a minute longer. You will transport us to the nearest civilized outpost immediately, do you hear me! Do you know who I am?”

*SMACK*

Dillion backhands Portia across the face so hard that blood gushes from her nose as she spins to the ground, or would have if the Marshall didn’t grab her in mid spin and draw her to his side and, gun now in hand pressed it to Portia’s head. The two guards immediately drop to the ground in prone positions, one ready to fire into the crowd, the other trained directly on Lord Hood and Willow. “OKAY! YOU!” Maestro! Get on my ship now! Everyone else, Stay where you are!!! Anyone goes hero on me or gets me and my men hurt, and I blast that piece of Go Sa to bits and leave you here to die. NOW MOVE!”

LV-426, Hunkered down behind the thruster house of Rocinante, 8:15 am PT

Asher watched the goings on down below with gun ready but he was caught flatfooted by the slap across the face to the Amber lady. Now the Marshall had a his head and body protected with a human shield and the other two were ready to open fire on crowd or Miss Willow. He could hear the leader calling out, “OKAY! YOU!” Maestro! Get on my ship now! Everyone else, Stay where you are!!! Anyone goes hero on me or gets me and my men hurt, and I blast that piece of Go Sa to bits and leave you here to die. NOW MOVE!”

LV-426, Inside Rocinante, Kitchen 8:15 am PT

Jessie looked around the kitchen. There was an enormous stockpot venting steam and aroma that was arousing her stomach and hunger. She thought food on a ship like this would be mundane but this lady who ran the kitchen on this ship was working wonders.

LV-426, Emergency Landing Field 8:15 am PT

Tess watched as the musician moved forward but her attention was drawn to the sight of Matherson and his two men moving through the crowd and towards the musician as well. Originally, Matherson seemed to want to stay away from the Marshall but now he was moving forward as if his life depended on it. Both Hack and Slash had their jackets undone and one hands inside as they approached the confrontation.

Tess wanted to shout into the comm as she brought it to her lips but she keyed it to Wolf's line and said, "Wolf! John! We got a situation. Some thrilling heroics might not go amiss soon! Real soon. No talkie back."

LV-426, Atmo Processor Interior 8:15 am PT

Wolf moved to the ladder with john covering him, then Wolf slowly proceeded up the iron ladder alone.
The voices had stopped for now and soon Wolf was up on the next level. The centre area was still the shaft from the fusion generator, but this area was all corridors and doors to barrack style dorm rooms. Wolf checked the immediate area and there was no sign of life. John moved up the ladder to join him on this residential level. There was a another stairsways up on both sides of the central shaft.

The area seemed deserted. Bunks upon bunks and cot frames remain behind of the living quarters that were used to house the workers at one point. No personal possessions left behind but there are mattress and sleeping spaces for more than what the ship brought to this moon.

“Going South! Repeat Going South! Request ... *crackle*” the voice is above you but louder and clearer this time. Not a live person though, sounds like it is coming from a radio or receiver. Next level is the centralized controls for the processors.

Suddenly Wolf's comm came to life,""Wolf! John! We got a situation. Some thrilling heroics might not go amiss soon! Real soon. No talkie back."
