Topic: Player for Serenity RPG
Subject: Player for Serenity RPG


Hello,

I am looking for someone to take over the role of Tess in the Serenity based game Destiny's Flight. Tess is the ship pilot and right hand lady to the captain Jon. It is a good crew with some interesting characters so if you like exciting stories and thrilling heroics - I need a Big Damn Hero.

I would like someone that understands the Firefly/Serenity verse a bit. However, I'm relatively open and there are many resources on the Web.

Subject: Sigh


On a sad note, Teller has left both Rocinante and Destiny. Something about too much drama on the inn. So I will play out Jessie and see about getting someone to take Tess in Destiny. I am open to suggestions. I would prefer to keep Tess in the game and I will Tess as an NPC for now.

ArchAngel is correct, he did post that his character was looking around but not touching anything. Sorry if I sounded snarky there, it was not a good day on Sunday and I was displacing my frustration. My bad.

I am all for the interactive of character so until you open a door or pick the lock to the cabinet, I really can not move you forward.

The weekend got away from me between the university tours for Mmv and the search for RED hot wheel shoes for Incrediboy (long story). I will be working up a post today.

On that note - did we lose Connor as John? I have not seen anything from him in awhile.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: Is someone gonna check the room? Maybe the NPC


Crow steps forward to be cleaning by the silver thing and appreciates the drying effect of both bow and arrows. At least he had a functional weapon again.

He decided to do a perimeter check of the room. The Closet door was large, oak and bound in steel. The door had no lock on it and when Crow listened closely to it, he heard nothing that sounded like movement or mage. As Dudley was putting out the food, the ranger glanced at the cage but could only figure it was for a small animal like a cat or rodent - and probably for travel. Whatever destroyed it, broke out from within judging by the wreckage.

The cabinet in the corner was a solid construction of metal and was locked. Crow could see through the frosted glass that within were decanters and bottles - perhaps even a few glasses. "If you are looking for spirits for the feast." he said aloud, "I think there are some in here, though the door is locked. I can force it but that may break whatever is inside."

The black openings in the room were a caution to Crow. He picked up a piece of the cage and gently poked the blackness. The piece was swallowed up and the blackness seemed to draw it in - magic portal no doubt.

The final wooden door down the hallway was without a lock and Crow listened carefully. He heard something faint. Could be the wind, or the animal that escaped the cage or something making a low faint moaning.

You would need a similar engine at least and a ASREV is a short range vessel. Specifically a Trace Compression Block engine that uses the compression coil for most of the main functionality. A Hornet class, Dragonfly, and a few salvage machine would be examples.

Subject: just a note to bring it all together


The Cleaning Golem goes after the party members and the wet floor like .... a cleaning tornado. Soon you are all dry as well as your clothing, armour and what little equipment you have. Once you are clean, the device goes back to wandering the room in search for a speck of dust or dirt. No amount of talking or touching it seems to distract it from its path.

The fireplace gives of warmth and light but does not seem to burn fuel – the logs within are decorative only.

Subject: timeline


The time that has passed is less than 20 minutes so for since you asked them to build so - no. Not enough time

Based of the tools you have given the boys they can build four bombs. Three will be either pin pull detonation or impact (they will rig them to go either way).They will be area fragment explosions that should kill or do damage in a 20 foot range and each is the size of a breadbox. These will take one hour to complete

The fourth on is a heavy on that the used a crybaby canister and that can be rigged for a radio detonation. This is a big boom, capable of destroying a aircraft or at least a section of a building. Note - they scavenged all of Ma's sterno and cooking oil to make this. Completion of this one is one hour after the others.

Sheldon thinks he could make an effective "real" missile from one of your decoy missiles. But he needs more grenades, detonators and a high glucose syrup. That will take two hours more.

Wyatt is talking to Matherson around 9:10. Figuring 10 minutes to complete conversation and then time to get to the shuttle - then the message from Willow across the ship and comms would be just as the shuttle is taking off. Albert is away right now so if Bro could reply to the call and let me know if you will land again to check out the problem of sabotage on the ship.

I will say it here to avoid the doubts - someone got into the engine room and the compression coil is now gone. Vanished except a whole lot of dust, which makes no sense to anyone. This means that you are officially humped - no repairs will lift you off without a new coil.

I feel like I am lingering here too much so I hope this weekend to whoosh us forward an hour or two. Opinions are always welcome.

A crewman bunk would include a bed, a toilet and wash basin that fold up for space, a locker to put your personal things and numerous hooks and clips to hang personal items.

It has already been established that Grace knows the airducts and access tubes of Destiny better than anyone, which is how she lead the Bounty Hunter astray for so long.

As to the instructions for Angela, if there is some way I can assist, let me know.

Subject: AHH! Someone moved


As soon as the Cidal cleric moves towards the fire, the silver oval shaped thing spins and turns towards him, moving at speed, or as much speed as its stubby legs can move. But, suddenly, a bright light flashed from the top of the thing and engulfs Dudley in its ray.

*BZZZZZZZZSHHHHH*

The light disappears and Dudley is .....




very clean and dry. His clothes, his hair, even the makeshift club he carries is now spotlessly clean.

The Watermelon of Cleanliness starts to move toward the party and the puddle that is forming underneath them.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: here we go


Maithias Crowmarhte washed ashore of the island. The cold wind blew a chill through the Sylvari body and he was battered and bruised from the trip to shore. But he was alive, and for that he was thankful.

He looked around the island and area where he had landed. Other survivors were ashore – one of them appeared to be a naked Khord, Crow didn’t feel so bad as at least he had his armour. Sodden, soaked and cold armour but at least he had that. But the realization dawned upon him that he was without gear or weapons now. His matching swords were at the bottom of the sea with the remains of the ship.

He forced himself up and began to scour the shoreline, hoping against hope that something of his would have made it here. After some time, he spots something – a quiver bobbing in the water. He runs out and gathers it up to find that the gods have been merciful and that it is his bow, quiver and....five arrows. Well, better than no arrows at all, but the bow string is wet, and the arrows’ fletching are soaked. He’d need somewhere to dry them, and with the weather and barrenness of the island, he wasn’t sure about a fire.

He wandered the shore line for a awhile but found nothing of use. Then he wandered over to where the others were gathering. The Grim Khord Priest was there (good, he does have armour), the two Cidals (how did they survive?), a sea man (how did he manage to keep the hat?), and another Syl (the mage if he remembered correctly) were gathering together.

"HO My Friends! How Fare Ye?" Gamand asks.

"Dolphins and devilfish!" Wembly exclaimed, shaking himself much like a wet hound coming in from a thundershower. He looked out over the sea. "Ha! That was some storm, Sea Queen! It will make for an excellent tale around a fire"

“Well,” Alôndas said as he limped closer, “I am glad to see that we at least made it.”
Wembley piped up, "Alan, right? Remember me? The dabbling cid from the Brynnandells? Oh, am I so glad to see that you made it. Now we can finish that story I was telling you about the other day. Remember? I was about to tell about the time I escaped from a orc raid party. Oh, you should have seen it... that pair of brown bears I conjured up was a work of art."

"Anyone else cold?" Wembley interrupted himself, shivering. "I could really use some shelter."

"Odd group...” Mal muttered the very thought that Crow was thinking.

“I’ll scout around.” Crow volunteers. ”I can’t promise anything but who know what I might find. Did anyone find any food or flint for a fire?”

The news that they had some food was good to hear but the lack of fire building was a worry. Crow set out wordlessly to search the island for a dream and a miracle.

And he may have found it. Just as darkness falls, you discover at the center of the island a shallow depression with a stone door. The door is unlocked and when opened reveals a descending stone stairway. At its bottom is another door of an unfamiliar material.

“Well now,” The Syl mage said with a smile, “shall we see what lies beneath? Perhaps we can find out what happened to the other people that appear to have been shipwrecked here before us. One other thing," he added before there was an answer, "who is leader here?"

"I'll lead this party! Oh! Oh! Pick me, Alan! Pick me! I can do it!" The excitable Wembley volunteered happily, drawing a smile from Mal.

“Wait, what? No, my name is Alôndas,” the mage said putting a strange ‘closed’ sounding accent on the ‘o’ which is common on Sylvari from the Northern Kingdom, “and I think it best if someone a little…. taller be leader. They’re better able to see over everyone and see the entire picture. You see?”

Mal leans on the wall before the door and says, "It hardly matters, so long as we all be knowin' we'll need each other to survive... assumin' that is even an option at this point. If'n we keep a warrior at each end o' the group, and ya magical beings in the center, we should be fine." He pauses, looking at the group before him. None were near equipped for an adventure of any kind, himself included.
"I be willin' to take point, if'n you be willin' to guard the rear, Syl" He says to Crow, nodding to the bow. "You bein' the best armed to help any position, 'specially bein' most o' the others are short enough to shoot over."

“Crow.” The ranger says, “Call me Crow and I shall call you Mal, but not Captain. My bow is useless until we can get it dry so you may lead for now. I am used to working on my own so don’t be expecting me to wait for orders though.”

“While I agree that, until we know the situation here, it would be best for us to work together,” he addressed the group, “but order is important and if we get into any situations, it is always good to have someone to make the tough decision.” Alôndas said, “Since you seem to have an understanding of tactics,” he said to Malrinn, “and you appear to like to give orders, perhaps you would to volunteer to lead us.

“Plus, you do seem to be tall enough for the job,” he added with a faint smile as his eyes flickered to Wembley.

“Well what are we waiting for, there is surely food and shelter in there, let’s go” Dudley asked eagerly.

With the swashbuckler in the lead the party descends the stone stairs. Even with the opening above, it is very dark once you reach the bottom. The door is black, with no handle or way to hold. When Mal touches it, he finds that he and the party are suddenly drawn into the blackness and into ....

The room is dark green. On the walls are gold fabric wall hangings and paintings of wilderness landscapes. A watermelon shaped metal object is moving back and forth across the floor in a regular pattern. It has two stubby legs and feet but no head or arms. Against one wall is a simple oak table next to a large corner cabinet of dull metal. On the oak table is what appears to be a wooden cage (for a small animal perhaps?) smashed to pieces. In the other corner is a wooden closet door. A mirror on the opposite wall has a very heavy filigreed frame of unfamiliar metals. Two comfortable sofas and two chairs are arranged in front of a fireplace which glows with a fire and gives off a lovely warmth. Across from the fireplace is what looks like a pitch-black doorway, and to the right a sort of hallway leading to another black opening. In the hallway is also a wooden door. (map to follow in QnA)

My description - You are wet and hungry and a chill wind is blowing that promises to bring the storm back with it.

As well, I have many family commitments that may keep me away for a week or two so please bear with me during those times.

I have no idea what to tell you about time commitment. It could play for awhile or fast as it is an 18 room module with no need to hit each room.

I certainly can bring out more adventures afterwards if so desired. I am not looking for long lengthy posts - no more than you would say at a table top game - unless you want to and can handle the time constraint.
