So we have a warrior and a rogue so far. Breeble? healer or magic user? Remember these  are broad catagories so you can find something that fits within.

Subject: restrictions


Characters must be fro the rule books Players Handbook. Sword Coast or Xanathar's. DNDnext classes are not allowed unless you really woo me with a backstory.


Hit points: Give yourself max. (I do the same for the monsters)


Healing: based on pecenatge of original HP


Spell Slots - I use mana instead, will explain to whoever wants to be spellcaster.


Magic items? None. You start out with nuthin' but a smile

Topic: 5e One Shot Adventure
Subject: Okay


So we have four players. Has everyone played 5e before? Which of the four roles does everyone wish to play.


C - I will let you join as long as you stay in Destiny.


A - two weeks is no problem, will take a wahile to get the characters created.


If you are looking for a character creator - fastcharacter.com is a good start for one class characters. Also there is a another one with tons of pre-gens Digital Dungeon Master 


But if you want to take the time to grow a character level by level, I welcome that. 


As well there is an excellent app for the phone called "Fifth Edition Character Sheet". There is a cost for it but if you like to have a character build level by level via the phone, it is worth the cost. I do not know how well it prints to pdf though.


I am here if you need help 


Remember you should be heroes of the realm, the type bards sing about and the world admires.

Topic: 5e One Shot Adventure
Subject: 5e One Shot Adventure


I would like to try a 5th edition D&D one shot adventure here at the inn. Do we have any 5th edition players out there? If not, I am more than willing to guide you through it but this will be a higher level campaign based on a concept. It will run a set course and end, without a continuing saga. Please note that if you are familar with other editions of D&D, it will not be hard.


Your characters will be at 15th level, or a total of 15 levels as per the multiclass rules. The characters are great heroes who accomplished great feats in your worlds (any world you wish) and will be remembered for all time.  But you died ….


Or so you thought. You remember thinking you were going to die but instead you woke up in a different place, with different people you never met before. You are in a cave, you are naked and standing in a chalk drawn magic circle.  A fire burns in a pit across the room and there is a young woman lying on the floor before you with a staff and dagger in hands. She is face down and not breathing (dead). Across the cave is an entranceway and sunlight beams in from beyond. On a pegboard nailed to the stone wall are four long brown robes hung up.


As players in this game you are to create your character and come up with their story, what they accomplished in their worlds and how they eventually died. You will start with no weapons, no magic items and no clothes. If you are playing a spell caster you will have access to spells, do not worry. The story is about the mystery of where you are, how you got here, why you were brought here and how to get home (if you really want to get home?).


Anyone interested? I would like to give first shot to people who are not currently playing in my Destiny campaign. Four characters that should fit into the categories of Warrior, Healer, Magic-user, Rogue. Opportunity to play will be based on the story you give me.

Subject: a short one so you can prep


"This looks like a science vessel.." She seemed to speak more to herself then the rest but they could hear her clearly, "they have stasis beds... perhaps an error message.." She hummed to herself before turning to the rest, "These ones have backup medical batteries.. there could be people in stasis. Good thing I'm comiing aboard then. You'll probably need me."


"Once we git over there, stick close t' me, Doc. Can't afford no trouble catchin' you sideways."


Jonah grimaced and turned to Wolf, "Well you look mighty fine in that slicker and the iron your packing but you heard the man...Bullet...we got things to do if'n you can keep your mind on business." Pops glanced at the young Doc as she looked out at the Demeter and smiled. "Them EV suits ain't gonna load themselves."


Captain had made his decision and the order were given. There was work to do and no one had any reason to hang around. EVA suits to prep and a shuttle to launch, not to mention what equipment to take in case you needed to repair or rig the Demeter to work.


Sung tracks down Ivy and when he makes sure that no one else is about, he dips his head and looks her in the eyes from beneath concerned brows, "You OK, Ivy-girl? You tuned int' that radio pretty hard."


Ivy looked up at the captain and smiled sadly, “yeah. No. I don’t know. It is like I am hearing a conversation caught on a recording that is years old. Stains. You spill something dark and it leaves a stain and no matter how long you wash it or soak it, the stain is there. Even bleach only hides the stain, but it is there. Can people become stains?” She stands up from the coach and looks at Wyatt with eyes sad from too my pain in too short a life, “I wish I was normal, Captain. I don’t means to be a burden.”


(response)


“I think I will go to the exercise room and do a workout. It usually makes me feel better and focuses my mind back to what’s real.” She said making quote marks with her hands when she says the word real, “Just a quick one, I’ll be ready when you need me.”


(response)


OOC: It will take about an hour to get the gear ready and everyone to move to the shuttle. Please be specific as to what you are taking over to the shuttle and remember the guns do not work in a vacuum, EVA suit gloves are not made to fit in a trigger and the Demeter has no life support.  Think of this as a dungeon adventure: you need light, you need magic (power, perhaps batteries) and you need tools.

I did not quite understand the plan as Wyatt explained it. Are you Eva Suit jumping and then having Alex and Ivy come over in the shuttle? or shuttling en mass and leaving Alex & Ivy in shuttle?


SilentOne - Check your PM, please. The doctor has some information that is important to the mission.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: a very good question


There is a lot of trash in the Verse and it is not an open market system. You must have a salvage licence to take anything from a ship that is derelict in space. Now you can get the licence for the Alliance as an independent operator but it can take months of forms and paperwork. You can also become a "licenced member' of United Reclamation, which is a corporate entity that has does salvage and is allowed to issue licences for contractors. if you work with UR, they take a cut, and you pay fees, and dues etc.


Now if you are aiding or rescuing people from a vessel in distress, you can claim a portion of salvage to offset expenses and generally accepted good Samaritan fees. 


Of course there is a lot of illegal salvage out there. getting caught though, is usually a bad thing.

That is a whole lot of firepower to go visit a ship with no power, no life support and a medical alert transmitting on short wave radio.

Subject: point taken


I can see how the trust is not there for a complete crew mission at this point. There are a number of options available from taking the shuttle to getting Destiny close enough to do an EVA suit jump.I promise that whomever is left on the ship will have some excitment to deal with at some point. There is also the important job of monitoring the black, digging up data on the cortex, etc etc.

Anyone can pilot a shuttle. Now can anyone pilot a shuttle and make a airtight seal between it and a rotating derelict ship? That is another story. 


 


For a game perapective, one of the reasons I give you an NPC is so all players can go on missions.

Destiny has only the one shuttle on top. It is a slight bigger shuttle that can seat 7 (one as pilot). If you had to, you can pick 12 people into the shuttle before you will have life support issues. It was on the ship when you found it  as were all the lifepods


 


  


 


If you look up Sandfly class Firefly, you will see a similar setup if you need a visual.

"Shinanigans...shinanigan, we ain't got time for no shinanigan,"Jonah grumbled out.


"I don't like it none," Wyatt mutters. "Xiâoxin. We've been running on too much good luck t' not have it blow back in our faces. Take us int' visual range but be ready on the throttle."


"Capt'n..we need to be real careful....we don't need any delays or distractions. If you don't find any signs of life , we ain't got time for another salvage."


About then he saw Ivy looking worried. She seemed to be repeating something. “Something is out there.” Ivy's faint voice filters in. “Something that needs help.”


That stopped Jonah cold. "We still need to be very careful."


Ivy put both hands to her head, covering her ears as if something loud was playing.


"Good to see you, Bullet" Alaxis said to Wolf coyly.


“You too Space Girl” Wolf replied while blushing.


“The shielding in the engineering quarters and the infirmary are the strongest of anywhere in the ship.” Ivy said to no one in particular. ”We have to save her. So much love. I’m sorry but I never lied to you.”


(Assuming a lot of stares)


Ivy put her hands down, “What? I … just had something stuck in my head like a song or a vid-clip.”


"Might not be the best time t' be distractin' Uncle Alex, Ivy-girl," Wyatt said quietly. The young lady nodded and left the cockpit without a word.


 


Demeter


 


Destiny Day 3, 7:30 pm Ship Time (ST)


It was definitely a ship. A strange long vessel with an armour plating that seemed to absorb most sensor forms of detection. The ship was dead in the black, rotating awkwardly and drifting without direction. Alex brought the speed down as you approached. There was some damage to the ship, the communication array was destroyed and there are some burn marks on the armour, but not enough to disable it. The ship had a front facing gun port for some big gun, but no other weapons.


According to the computer, it was an Apollo class science/exploration vessel.  On the bow of the ghost ship was an emblem of an “earth that was” ship that used to sail the oceans with sheets of cloth to capture the wind. Superimposed over that was a woman holding a stalk of wheat, a matronly woman dressed in white robes. Under the image was the word “DEMETER”


Demeter? The Demeter????


The Legend of the Demeter:


During the Unification war, a group of Browncoats stole a large amount of platinum bars from the alliance to order to help fund their efforts in the war.  The story of amount stolen varies but it is usually 1000 of bars worth 100 platinum each and the funds were smuggled upon a ship called the Demeter to be delivered to Independence High command. But the ship never showed up, it just vanished from the verse, never to be found again. The High command was hit hard by this loss and declared the crew as traitors and put a bounty on their heads. It did not help, as the ship and crew were never seen again. 


The short wave radio message was still coming from the ship. “life support failure is imminent. Error 417719” There was a very faint energy signature from within the front area of the ship but the shielding made pinpointing it impossible.  Otherwise the ship before you was completely dead. Engines off and cold. No pulse beacon, no power and no life.


The Apollo class was not made for ship to ship connecting and has a very small cargo bay. You can not get Destiny close enough to connect, so you’d have to use the shuttle and try a manual override if you wanted to go over.


From the rec room beyond the cockpit, Ivy's voice can be heard in a dead tone, "Please save her. I love her so and she is just innocent. Please save her..."
