Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: state of the ship


I have not heard from Loki or Yanamari for over a month now so I am declaring both Tess and John as NPC's until this game is over. Bromern, Odyson, Tann, Teller and Vanadia are only people actively playing at the moment.

I would like to continue this game but I think after this i will try to get a player for pilot and no more.

Subject: In the AP station. Ghosts and voices


LV-426, Atmo Processor Interior 8:10am PT

John and Wolf entered the building, neither one of them too interested in getting tangled up with Federal Marshalls unless it was absolutely necessary. The fusion chamber was locked up tight and the lights flashed on a newtech security system on the doorway. that mean the core was still in there and was probably running low enough just for lights and monitors.

Np the steel stairs to the second floor, a 60 foot wide catwalk that hugged the circumference of the building with two personal lifting platforms in either end. The catwalk had rows of rows of lockers set up. Places for the terraformers to keep their equipment and valuables. As you walk around, many are decorated with cards, ribbons and the black ink of farewell messages to those that lost their lives on the planet. Terraforming was a lucrative job but the risks were plentiful and many never made it home. The presences of the notes gives a haunted and forlorn sense to this level.

As the two men move to the personal lifters that are directly above the main doorways below, they see the panels have no power but there is a iron bar ladder built into the shaft beside the lifts.

"Have they got ... hear .."

John and Wolf look at each other with the same question - did you just hear that? Above you a voice can be heard, faintly, but definitely talking. As soon as you try to listen to it, it is gone again but you are sure you heard it above you.

LV-426, Emergency Landing Field 8:10am PT

As the engines powered down, the landing ramp lowered and out walked a man in the black uniform and trench coat of the federal Marshals. He was a tall man, handsome in a rugged sort of way with brown hair and an easy smile. (James Arness in his 30's) He had a sidearm at his right and machine pistol on other. Behind him came two other men, dressed in full Alliance military armor and carrying assault rifles slung over their shoulders.

Wyatt left the shotgun barrel down as he gave the marshal a nod. “Glad you boys could make it,” he intoned casually though he felt the tension from the recent encounter threatening to explode. “We were wondering when help fer these good folk was t’ arrive.”

The man looked at the Captain with a bemused smile and his eyes shifted from the shotgun to Wyatt’s face. He didn’t seem intimidated but the two guards behind him immediately dropped their assault rifles from shoulder the hands in a fast smooth motion that spoke volumes of their training. The man in black raised his hand in a “Hold” signal without turning his head from the captain.

“Whoa rancher!” He said with a light chuckle, “We ain’t here to steal your cattle. We been asked by the Five Star Co. to come and help with the search and rescue. No interest is what’s in your hold or business, Dohn ma? There is cortex interference so we were sweeping possible havens and glad we did cause we found you. So the big carrier is coming, hang tight. We are just looking to pick up some VIP that the execs are sweating about.

“My name is Dillon. Matt Dillon – Federal Marshall.” He looks around the area appreciatively.”I must say I admire your crew and ingenuity to be able to land the ship that damaged and not be burying people. Do you have a manifest of the passengers you have with you?”

(assuming a introduction and a negative on a manifest)

Tess moved to the side of the crowd that was moving towards the new visitors and looked for a place to support the Captain. The crowd however was going to make that difficult. She saw Sifu was among the crowd but hanging to the back with a small man with a silver case. The monk looked concerned and was gently holding back the man from running forward.

Asher got himself into position on top of Rocinante It was a good place to be, as he was looking down. He put his sight on the man in black and kept himself ready in case anything went south in a hurry.

As the crowd moved forward with the hoops and hollers of the passengers, they people pressed forward asking questions and cheering the presences of the marshalls. Havelock moves behind and to the side of Captain Wyatt, a look of disapproval firmly etched on his face. The old soldier reflectively puts his hand where his gun would have been had this not been peace time and traveling on a cruise. Armed or not though, he stood by the Captain.

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 ….?”

The marshall looked at Willow with some surprise and interest, “Admiral? 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 and turns back to Wyatt, “No manifest? Okay. Do you have any members of the Five Star Orchestra? The musicians?”

LV-426, Inside of Rocinante Cargo hold 8:10 am PT

Jessie moved into the cargo hold and moved in behind the catwalk closest to her and farthest from the feds. She waited for a moment as people moved out of the ship like the Captain and the Lady Doctor. Once clear she moved up the stair to the interior of the ship. Once nearing the top, she could hear someone moving around and the air began to fill with the mouth watering aroma of a soup cooking. Jessie’s stomach growled at the aroma but she had more pressing things to worry about. Where to hide the case? The older lady that everyone called Ma passed by the stairs carrying a pink shotgun but heading towards the stairs on the other side of the common room, leaving Jessie alone in the hallway between the crew dorms , the bridge and the kitchen/common room.


(I will post the going-ons at the Atmo Processors soon. I just wanted to get this posted)

Relax Albert. I promise to keep things as intact as possible. I do have a vested interest in this game.

Don't forget that you are hauling Liquid fertilizer that can also serve as a powerful explosive and is highly illegal to be transporting.

Fun fun fun ....

I can guarantee the game will be here, as to the ship and the crew ... it could get interesting.

They are wearing the Newtech "nemesis" armour that scans the minds of hostiles and adapts for whatever nasty plans are coming. Commonly called the AntiAsher system.

The two guys in the back have fully body armour including the ominous looking helmet and visor. Big dashing guy in black, no mask but you can see armour under the clothing.

Or in other words ... You do not know, go ask them.

Always bringing up that time you were in the jailhouse when it exploded. I remind you that you walked away from that and it was a damn fine scene that I'd put to film any day.

This part is a touchy scene. Lots can go wrong easily. lots of reacting and how fast. Lots of thing could get interesting.

Tann - No Problem. I can wing it for Wolf until then.

Ody - You remind of this character that was played in D&D when I was young. The first guy who played him didn't really look at the character sheet or use his magic. Then I passed it to another person and suddenly we realized that the mage had a bloody arsenal.

You make me regret not double checking Asher's sheet awhile ago. My fault really. EMPs? Sigh.

You have to remember you have 75 civilians wandering around here. Start chucking grenades and someone will get hurt really fast.

I promise that a chance for Asher to completely let loose his arsenal is coming soon.

Subject: First floor


The interior of the AP is massive. The main floor that you are on is used normally to store all the mobile equipment the terraformers use, but right now this is just a mostly empty area. Two stairways go up to a catwalk above that clings to the side of the building. Beyongd that there are more floors going up before hitting the inner works of the AP.

In the centre is the fusion reactor chamber. It is completely shut down right now and you's have to check it to see if the core is intact or whether it was dismantled. They are often left behind because the cost of removing the core safety is far greater that the core itself. The chamber goes straight up to the top of the building, through a shaft directly out of the top.

The antigrav lift is a huge plate that would normally be set to go up and down only to lift the big parts. However the drive shaft is gone so it is effectively a huge heavy plate going nowhere.
