You also have a very large galley so the garden bunk could be there.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Logically


While you are fenging your shui ...


Logically, it would make sense to put Catie in 8, the brothers in 10, the planner in one guest room and the bodyguard and princess in another with the duct tape curtain as I mentioned before. That way the brothers can be watched by the crew, the passenger are in the guest area and can not access the ship easily and the body guard is guarding his charge.

Of course, logic and reality don't often co-habituate.

The body guard is male, the princess is female (natch) and the wedding planner is female.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: into the breech


You step through the black portal. There is no flash or even a feeling accompanied with the move, you are in a room one moment and in another the next.

The room is very dark at first. The smell of wood (cedar?) is strong and a musty smell (peat-ish?) as well. Then, candles in sconces around the room light up on their own and you perceive that you are in a 30x30 foot room where all the walls are lined with wooden wine racks full of bottles.

Before you is a staircase going up into darkness. On your right is another stairwell going down. The floor is a grey stone, dusty with signs of recent traffic to both stairs. The ceiling is 20 up, unpainted stone. It is cooler in here than the other room, but not uncomfortably though.

All the bottles in the room are filled with a clear liquid or a slightly yellowish. They are very dusty but some have been recently disturbed. There are even a few missing.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Grace meets Catie


Catie had to admit, the Destiny drew her in. There was something about it. Something she couldn't quite put her finger on. Perhaps it was that sort of energy. Names are symbols, but names also have power.

She didn't have long to think about it, however, her baggage trailing behind her as Catie spotted the gangplank, and Stephanie there to greet her. Catie quickly walked up to give Stephanie a friendly hug.

"Feels like it's been a long time." Catie said, "How have things been?" She asked.

"Hard to say. Things are good in general, but not quite as I would like them to be. But so it would be true for anyone I imagine. I am glad you came and accepted my invitation.

"I probably should drop these off on board before I leave them outside." Catie chuckled, following Stephanie inside the Destiny, and looking around, taking in much of the detail, "I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect by the description in your message, but she is a very unique vessel. A curious air."

"Really? Jon certainly feels a connection and Grace is almost mentally linked to the ship so perhaps you are right. Wait until you meet our lady in white - that will get you thinking. What exactly are you feeling about her?"

"I'm not exactly sure. Could be my imagination, or could be a feeling that there's more than you greeting me." Catie replied, before shrugging, "Either way, I suppose I should place these somewhere before you bring me up to date."

"No small talk or chit chat catie? Well I have to get used to calling you that, perhaps you really are a new person now?"

"Well, it has been a very long time since I was involved in something related to my research. I guess I kind of missed it." Catie admitted, before looking along the inner corridor, "Was there a room already assigned to me?" She asked.

"No. Not yet. To be honest I haven't told the crew about you because I wasn't you were coming." Stephanie said plainly. "I know things have not been easy for you." She helped Catie bring her bags abroad and then pressed the control panel "Grace! Could you come to the Infirmary? I have someone you should meet. She is a friend of mine."

Stephanie brought Catie to the infirmary and pulled up a chair for both of them. "Grace is a bit different. Amazingly intelligent, gifted with anything mechanical but not the most social if people. She has some issues with paranoia but frankly, it has saved our lives a number of times so although it sounds like crazy conspiracy theatre - don't dismiss her. She can be very loyal if you can become her friend."

The was the sound of the lift and soon a young lady appeared in the doorway of the infirmary. Grace was young, very pretty and had the look of a doctor examining a bug under a glass when she looked at Catie.

"Grace, this is Catie Yueshi. She is a colleague of mine who is an expert on genetics and prosthetic implants. I asked her to join us in order to get more help with JC and Angela. She is a good friend and I trust her Grace, so you can as well."

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: The Caves




The exodus to the caves was not a easy trek, even though it was only a little more than a mile. For the monk, even his training in mediation and harmony were strained to the limit as he listened to everyone around him complaining all the way. Portia Amber going on about how no one seemed to care that she'd been slapped and electrocuted and did they know who she was?! The Queen Bea and her clutch of young Heathers all chattering along the way about how long a hike it was, how the rocky terrain was hurting their feet, and the terrible impoliteness of the crew for not giving them a lift.

But it was Lord Hood that had changed the most in Sifu's eyes. Before he was acting confident and being a leader to these people, he was now very irritable and snappish. All the way to the caves he was muttering to himself about Havelock jumping in front of the mercenary and taking the bullets. He was completely shook up by the action of the man. It had caused an internal struggle with the Lord and it was not being reconciled easily. But it was taking away a driving force behind the passengers that was sorely needed.

The cave was not hard to find and (luckily) not too much of a climb upwards. The terraformers use giant water jets to carve the cave out in the first stages, and it is made to be accessible to the equipment. without too much hardship. The entrance looked plain enough but once with the rock, there were signs of deep groves in the floor and ceiling. This would have been where the steel doors that formed an airlock would have been, as there was no atmosphere during stage 1. But as he ran his hand along the groove, Sifu felt metal still within the stone. As they moved in further, the controls for the doors were enbedded with the rock, and lights were still flashing on the panels.

Lord Hood looked at Sifu in surprise, "Power?"

The monk shook his head, not knowing anything about the mechanics of terraformers or environment containment. He pushed a button labeled "main doors closure". An alarm sounded so loudly that the passengers jumped at it.

"WARNING - Main airlock closing in ten seconds. Nine. Eight ..."

The voice counted down and at zero, the steel doors moved quickly across the entrance way to seal off the caves. As soon as the doors closed, lights came on with the tunnels and the sounds of fans turning could be heard.

OOC: The caves have a power supply and are still operational with a self contain life support system.

You have two brothers that are will to share a room. A girl, a Bodyguard and a wedding planner. I'd say you need 4 rooms or possibly three if the Bodyguard wishes to stay in same room as Girl.

Before we start moving, let's see where crew is staying. If I am wrong with any of these, let me know.

Looking at the map on the Character Thread

#3 Jon's Room
#21 Grace's Room
#20 Stephanie's Room
#12 Angela's Room
#11 Tess' Room
#9 JC's Room


Open - 8&10 (I was thinking #8 for Catie)
Guest Rooms - 5&6 (Note both are double occupancy and can be converted to two small rooms with a privacy screen and some duct tape.

Yes, I know what you meant. Trying to be funny. Failed miserably.

The skeletons in the closet look human. They are held together with wire and string so easy enough to grab a leg and go.

I do need to know who is carrying what and what you chose to take in the backpack.

Mice and cats don't really have a large bone. But if you want to swing a dead cat, feel free.

Yes you may plunder the skeletons for bones if you wish.


The decanters would probably make a better weapon.

There are 13 bottles of booze. You can't fit them all in a backpack.

With creative packing I would say you can store the left over food, two decanters, the small dropper and possible 3 books

That is why I wanted to clarify. Easy to get confused in an online game.

Shall I assume everyone is going through the portal? I can post the nest room if I can.

“So, you still interested in that date?” Angela asked.

Badger smiles broadly, "Oh I likes you. You got cheek and don't fluster. I am a patient man though. But I'd never ask you to do something you didn't want, so consider that my interest is genuine and a promise I mean no harm. That be a lot more than I ever offered another crew."

Badger turned to the Captain, "We have a deal then. Be at Diviner's Gulch at 2 am. There'a a clearing at the bottom, we will meet you there. Keep the running lights to a min, them press dogs can sniff out a story and we don't want any spectators. Don't be late."

OOC: Diviner's Gulch is a valley off the main roads outside of Eavesdown. Good place to go if you don't want to be seen. Lots of rocks, trees and places to hide.

Allons-y!


Actually - There is a Portal to the South to. No idea why I forgot that one. the north Portal would be the one you came through if you look at the x on the original map. No problem going through that one, but I wanted to be clear on that.

Tiamat5774 - Sorry i am currently full but I will let you know if I need a fill in

As with any online game, players post what they think is gonna happen and I will say what has really happened.

Which Portal did you go through. There are three? One to the "north", one to the "East" and one to the "west" in the library.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: hello


The problem with a gun range on a ship, soft rounds or not is the "accident" factor. All it would take is one person using the wrong rounds and you won't have time to apologize. The other thing to think of is the sound echoing throughout the closed space of a ship. I would say no to a gun range and I believe the captain has already spoke. You do have a weight and exercise room on the ship if you look at the map. If you are looking to test your new companions, you can always spar at martial arts or even do a team game and see how well they work together.

How much time? You do not know yet. Badger has said tonight but not when. If he is looking to sneak the girl out though, you can probably assume after midnight and somewhere isolated.

Subject: Love Cidals.


Wembley impulsively opens the closet door to reveal before him six skeletons. He shrinks back slightly, in reaction to them but no attack comes. He then realizes these are all hung on hangers attached to a wooden dowel across the top of the closet. Six skeletons – just hanging there.

There is nothing else in the closet.

Subject: no, that is correct


Jon and Stephanie are very different in age and it was part of the underlying issue in the game before, that Stephanie didn't want to get involved with a younger man but there was obviously an attraction between the two. Once Destiny was assumed destroy and S and J were locked in a shuttle for awhile, the romance blossomed ...so to speak.
