Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Silver Screen Moment I


Black Bart looked at his command officers at the table and wondered how he got himself in this situation. He knew of course - money. It was a gorram frog-humping big pile of money.

“Are we in agreement?” He asked.

Marv drew heavily on his cigarette and blew the white smoke into the air. He was a huge man, tough as they could come and as ugly as well. “Sure. It could be fun. Still think we take the salvager, mag grab the ship and take off with it.”

“Except that if the case is in the ship or the violin without the case – it could be damaged. A damage violin means we don’t get paid. Remember Marv, gold buys beer.” Nancy replied in a cheerful manner. She always had a smile on her face and a pleasant thing to say. The fact that she was blond, gorgeous and could kill a man with her bare hands only made her more of an asset. “You know I am with you Lover.” She said with a wink to Bart.

“We are against 6? Maybe 7? Sounds like overkill with plastic guns and foul language, but I am good with the plan.” Dwight replied. A fast draw and good with both hands, the dark haired man like the ladies and gave Nancy a appreciative smile.

“Yeah.” Was all that Hartigan said. The oldest of the group, almost balding with some grey hair clinging to dear life on his head. He wasn;t looking for the payout – never was, just along for the ride and a hope that this time, Lady Death would meet him halfway.

Bart nodded, “Right. You men pick your teams. Nancy, get the ships ready for flight. You’ll be our best eyes and ears when we are on the ground Honeycream, so take the Falcon.”

“You got it Sweetheart.”

“Take Wilson with you.”

“Really? I work alone Bart.”

“Make an exception. He was there, knows the territory.”

“Alright. Sure. But if he can’t behave, I’m not responsible for my actions.”

“Alright. Dismissed. I want teams assembled in the launch within two hours.”

The team moved out of the room, looking to gather their men and prepare for the mission. Nancy held back with Bart until everyone had left. “Two hours? Seems leisurely.”

“Yeah but it gives us some alone time. Come here Babe. I can’t wait to get to our room.”

Combine
(Evocation)
Sphere: All

Range: Touch
Components: V, S
I would allow for two joining hands. Since one of you is Solanis worshipping you are a lvl higher for turning so you'd be 5th, which is auto turn on Zombies.

Duration: Special
Casting Time: 1 rd.
Area of Effect: Circle of priests
Saving Throw: None
Using this spell, three to five priests combine their abilities so that one of them casts spells and turns undead at an enhanced level. The highest-level priest (or one of them, if two or more are tied for highest) stands alone, while the others join hands in a surrounding circle. The central priest casts the combine spell. He temporarily gains one level for each priest in the circle, up to a maximum gain of four levels. The level increase affects turning undead and spell details that vary with the caster's level. Note that the central priest gains no additional spells and that the group is limited to his currently memorized spells.
The encircling priests must concentrate on maintaining the combine effect. They lose all Armor Class bonuses for shield and Dexterity. If any of them has his concentration broken, the combine spell ends immediately. If the combine spell is broken while the central priest is in the act of casting a spell, that spell is ruined just as if the caster were disturbed. Spells cast in combination have the full enhanced effect, even if the combine is broken before the duration of the enhanced spell ends. Note that the combination is not broken if only the central caster is disturbed.

Subject: Well


There is attempting to turn the undead. I think there is a combine spell that could have the two clerics act as a 4th level. Since they are tiny creatures, you might effect a great deal of them, unless they are vampiric zombie animals, in which case you are all dead.

There is always a light spell.

For the mages - burning hands would work well.

One of your Clerics is of Solanis (Holy Anger Division) and probably would feel obliged to put an end to the powers of darkness and evil, even among the tiny creatures.

Clerics prayers are provide by the gods. You must pray for a spell. There is no mana.

With me, I do not play the domain restrictions. Use the entire list.

You have x spells per day. At 2nd level, a cleric would have 4 1st level spells a day if they have at least a ...16 WIS. Now there are some extra spells you get for your god in Audlais as well, but this is how the base works.

We good?

OOC: I'm curious if maybe we could use the cleaning bot to clean up of the mice. Is there a way to release it in to the other room with the cat and mice?

Don't know - ask it. Bwahahahahahahaha

You could try to pick up Opus (my name for it) and carry it over or open the door, run and see if it reacts. It is a gamble either way.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: The Walking Pets


Wembley removed the various decanters, tumblers and vials from the cabinet and placed them on the table with the food. He tried to sniff them to see if any smelled like common spirits one might find at a tavern. For the most part, he was correct, Rum, Brandy, Vodka, Poln-Twa, etc . The blues are a mystery but have that alcohol scent to them. The Green is Ammuntahaanu – a rarely found spirit of the Gilskalos. As to the dark brown, it smells like a swamp and a distilleries forbidden love-child.

(not sure if Wembley wants to break the seal on the small vial)

Once feed and ready to move on, the party turns their attention to the wooden door down the hallway. Wembley listens to the door and hears the same low moan that Crow heard from within - definitely animal-like but more ... menacing.

(I am going to assume some positioning here based on standard D&D play)

Crow stands with Bow in hand, arrow notched behind the Rogue as he works on the doorway to check for traps. Alôndas stands ready with a spell in mind, Mal has Sabre in hand and the others gather to assist in any way necessary.

The Cidal is satisfied there are no traps on the door and opens it cautiously. The room is dark, not illuminated as the one you are in but the light comes in to reveal the contents. Bookcases line two walls, and in the center is a small table and four chairs. In another wall is a clear glass window through
which the Living Room may be viewed. In a corner are a desk and chair. The desk is messed up as though someone has searched it.

On the table is a black cat. It is quite mangled and has dried blood matted in its fur. But the cat still moves and from it comes the deep moaning that you heard through the door. Its eyes are blood eye and seem to glow in an oh, so menacing way. It hisses at you and as it does more eyes, much smaller, appear in the darkness – on the shelves of the bookcases, on the desk, on the floor and all throughout the room. Mice, Lots of them, with the same glowing blood filled eyes looking like they should be dead but not. They start to move towards you and the doorway, not quickly but still clambering over the floor, falling off the shelves and leaping forward to get at you. A miniature army of the dead lead by an undead cat.

There is a black portal on the other side of the room.

Tech to disintegrate something does not exist in the Verse. At least not as far as you know.

However ... It did exist back on earth that was but when used as a weapon, would burn a small area into a person and then move outwards, making it an incredible cruel and painful way to kill. It was banned back on EtW and the tech censored. Only two of the guns are rumoured to exist (The Varon-T) but they do not have the working component and are owned by collectors - Extremely Wealthy collectors of Earth that Was artifacts.

Only Jon had the knowledge of the passenger. I figure the rest really had no link that would lead them to tabloid mags and paparazzi stalking.

However as the conversation goes on, Crew might know others that are mentioned.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: The job


Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Badger’s Office, 6:10 pm ST

“Oh my, mister! What a lot of fine things you have! You must be important!” Angela breathed, then gasped and looked down at her feet when she realized she’d spoken aloud.

A man in a tweed suit and bowler hat smiles at the outburst, but his eyes are sly, and he barely glances at Angela, instead looking over Tess and Jon, then JC, as if he is trying to remember something. Yet the simple compliment seems to enchant him.

Angela lets the two men exchange pleasantries while she gets over her embarrassment. She continues to look around the room in sidelong glances, though it’s the two cute fellows sitting together that have caught her attention now. She started to brush her hair back from her face, only to remember it was already pulled back.

“Since this is our first face to face, I thought we’d start out on the right foot. Complements of me – I’m Badger, “the man said. ” Now I hears that you have a fast ship and that you are reliable. That be two things I have a real use for right now.”

Angela’s gaze swiveled from the men to the table, but before she could react, Tess was diving in, pouring herself a drink and tucking in like she hadn’t had breakfast.

“Yes Sir, Destiny is one fastest boats about,” the Captain answered,” and we take our jobs seriously.... We aren’t the biggest but we can do special deliveries quicker’n anyone…....And for the that food there….well that’s mighty nice of you, my crew appreciates it. …..I hope you don’t mind I brought so many, Tess there is my pilot and I figured it’d easier if she could ask what she needed to know straight out......The others are fairly new to my crew and I thought the experience would be good for them..... Besides this ain’t the easiest area to walk through.” Jon nodded to JC and Angela that it was ok.

The sandwiches are simple but the fish is good. The drink is a fruit beverage made from powder and whoever made it didn’t read the measurements so it is a bit strong and sweet. But free food is free food.

Angela smiled delightedly and stepped lightly over to the table, where her nose told her before her eyes could that the sandwiches held tuna. “Tuna? Like, from a real can? Mister, you sure know how to make a girl feel welcome! Thanks!”

Again, Badger smiles broadly. “I like her. Knows how to appreciate a man’s largess”. Unfortunately, with his accent it sounds more like he says large ass. Any mis-cue the crew might take from this slip is lost as both the young men in suits chortle loudly. Badger turns on them with a glare, “Oi! You ain;t been around with me long enough to be showing anything but respect. I’m the boss! The man who pays you! Don’t be forgetting that.”

The two sheepishly apologize and regain their composure.

“Where was I?” Badger asks while looking at Angela with a smile, “Right. Sorry about that. A businessman like me, with roots in the community needs to remind people how they should behave. Hope I didn’t frighten you.”

(Assuming something passive from Angela)

“Right. The Job. The job involves chaufferin’ the stepdaughter of some well-to-do land baron to her wedding aboard a luxury cruise liner, the Rim’s Dream. The girl’s name is Lilianna Fairchild. Job is simple—deliver the girl to the cruise liner in time for her wedding which is 5 days from now. Actually, It will be the girl, her bodyguard, and a wedding planner. As well, these two,” he points a finger at the two young men, “Will be joining you in order to complete a business transaction of my own. I can’t hand over a simpler job. Course, it don’t pay much, 20 a head per day but you do this right by me and, well you be in my good book and there be people that would kill to be there.” he says with a modest chuckle.

Badger pulls a folded piece of paper off his desk and hands it to the Captain. “That’s the coordinates of the liner, five days good enough for you?”

(If Tess looks over the coordinates she will see that you can do so easily in five days, but only because you have Destiny. A Firefly or Hornet would have to hard burn all the way)

OOC: Some of you will get a PM with info your character knows

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: inside


Wembley works on the lock to the metal cabinet and is able to turn the tumblers with ease. Inside the cabinet are four shelves of decanters of various sizes and shape. There are six that are clear, 4 that are brownish, two blues, a bright green and a dark brown with a lot of green sediment at the bottom. There is one very small bottle as well, a blue glass that is very small, even to a Cidal’s hand. It is wax sealed and has a rubber tear drop on the top suggesting a dropper within.

Alôndas examination of the portal reveals that the darkness does not draw him in for merely touching. The is cool to the touch but other than that, nothing of note. The mage suspects that you have to put yourself through the portal at least halfway before it will activate.

Subject: okay answers


Bro - Sorry I got your sons names mixed up, but i do so with my own as well. Giddy has not posted for two months and he has yet to let you know the turbines were uncoupled.

Tann - Actually no you didn't post that you went back to engine room. In fact, I asked your specifically where Wolf was going before leaving ship and you said you were gathering guns and ammo from yours and Asher's room only.

"The only stops I'm making Roger are to pick up my extra ammo box of 100 rds for the Pistols and an extra 50 rds for my shotgun. As for the JC I'm reloading the few rds I fired and grabbing all 3 of it's magazines and 150 Shotgun rds for a total of 200 shotgun rds. Of those 200, 100 of them will go to John for the SPAS shotgun he has and I'm putting all into my backpack. Then its on to the Mule. And just to be clear I have all 4 magazines for the pistols."

You did post you had a bucket of scrape but you did not post where you got it. I could only assume you got it along the route between Asher's gun supply and the mule. You probably would not keep scrap in the engine room anyway but in a supply locker.

I wanted Wolf to go into engine room so he'd discover this missing part himself. But you didn't so I improvised a way to get you back. As to when did this happen between now and the time you left to go to the atmo processor. Part of online gaming is that sometimes i have to guess.
