Yanamari has agreed to take over Tess for the near future and then we will see about a possible new one after this adventure.

Subject: done

the game is here, Rocinante Tess came into the game around pg 38, Current adventures starts around 43, but the last four pages should be enough to get the idea depending on how much you wish to read.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: timeline

All times by the planet time. I have started from when the ship landed. I hope this helps. Due to some backposting, there was some confusion on what happened when.

6:00 am – Rocinante lands on LV-426. Wolf powers down engine. Sifi is asking for the Captain.

6:10 am – Sifu tells Willow and Wyatt that there is someone on board the ship that wants something so bad, they will kill for it. Tess begins a sensor sweep and attempts to break the cortex block unsuccessfully.

6:15 am - Willow tells Tess and Trish about inside man, Wyatt informs Wolf, John and Ash.

6:30 am – Wolf and John begin to inspect ship and assess damage. Wyatt and Ash leave on the Hovermule to do a fast recon of the area. Passengers begin to leave ship and wander around outside.

6:45 am – Willow and Sifu leave ship to look around passengers. Trish asks Sifu for permission to take some food supplies and begins making soup. Jessie (Beatrix) takes refuge in cargo bay.

7:00 am – Willow and Sifu begin to talk to band members. A scuffle starts between two passengers. Tess leaves cockpit and sits down to talk with Jessie (Beatrix)

7:15 am – Wolf reports to Wyatt about damages and asks for permission to take Ash and John to scavenge for parts on the atmo processor. Wyatt okays job but wants to keep Ash by ship so not to separate all the heavy fighters from the ship. Wolf and Ash go to retrieve guns, John goes to first shuttle. Then, Wyatt goes to talk to Willow and Sifu about events happened and the prospect of setting up a camp.

(assuming fight between passenger is resolved at this point by Willow or at least calmed)

7:20 am – John having witnessed a couple in the shuttle making out, retreats to other shuttle and calls Ash to help out. Wyatt runs off to ship to see what is the matter, passing Tess and Jessie on the way. Ash and Wolf go to investigate after locking gun cabinets.

7:22 am – Wolf and Ash heading to shuttle in question, meet Wyatt on the catwalk.* Wyatt orders Wolf to other shuttle because repairs are more important. Wolf obeys, Wyatt and Ash enter the shuttle and see the two going at it.

7:23 am – Ash calls to Willow via comm., “Miss Willow... we’re gonna a med kit with tranquilizers.. and maybe antidotes in the port shuttle. We got a couple high on some sort of love drug and if we don’t slow um down this old guy is gonna hurt himself.” Wyatt attempts to break to couple up physically. Willow is just about to talk to musician again when the call comes.

7:24 am – Shuttle leaves with John and Wolf to head for Atmo processor.

7:25 am - Hijinks ensue.

*will be covered in my post

So, when I begin my post, Wyatt and Ash are in shuttle along with Amber and Cameron. John and Wolf are in other shuttle on their way to Atmo processor. Tess and Jessie are in the cargo bay. Willow will be outside ship presumably on her way to the shuttle. Sifu will be with passengers outside, thinking about the caves and what will be required to move passengers. Trish is in the kitchen making soup. i know that Willow/Vanadia plans to handle the fight between passengers and try to talk to musician before she gets call from Ash.

The game updates on a slow curve. We might average once every two weeks. Lots of RL busy people playing.

Subject: okay

First and foremost, I am not looking for any players to walk away or leave the game. I want everyone to stay here with the characters they have, so please lets not have any of that.

I'm sorry. I was trying to set up a comical moment in the game before the revelation of something very dark. The comic moment is still there but now the mood has been dampened. Now I regret putting the scene in. I should have stayed deep within the PG rating instead of skirting the edges.

Any group of gamers worth their salt will run into conflicts over actions. Having done this for a long time, I have seen many an arguments or conflicts over actions taken in the heat of the game. Especially in online games where actions may or may not actually happen. We can easily offend or hurt another online because it is a cold medium, but we are all friends here so lets work past it, because this is a really good game and I really love playing it.

Albert acted on knowledge that his character did not have and I told him so, but I told him not to bother to change his post because it gets confusing when people go back and make changes. So the actions that he posted will not happen, instead his character obeys Wyatt's order and goes to the other shuttle. I will post a timeline later today but in short, John leaves shuttle and "coms" Ash. Ash and Wolf head to shuttle. Wyatt meets them on route and orders Wolf to concentrate on fixing ship. Wolf heads to other shuttle, Wyatt and Ash enter shuttle. See Couple. Wyatt moves to separate the two. Ash calls for Willow, who is at that point trying to get the musician to talk to her.

Vanadia made a really good point that in RL there are a lot of bad things happening lately. Really bad. We don't have a transport ship to fly away from the bad and stick to the border planets. But this games gives me an hour or two a week to do just that. Like the crew of Serenity or Rocinante, let's stick together and keep her flying.

I am looking for someone to take over the role of Tess in the Serenity based game Voyages of the Rocinante. Tess is the ship pilot and if you are more interested in playing your own character, then we can just get Tess to the end of the current adventure and work something out. Celeste ran into some real life issues and I do not see her coming back any time soon.

I would prefer a woman to play Tess, and one that understands the Firefly/Serenity verse a bit. However, I'm relatively open.

Subject: interesting

Define Interesting .....

I will attempt to get the timeline down tonight. It will be a point form list mostly.

We have some conflict in posts right now. There is a lot going on in the game at the moment and conflicting posts will happen - no way to avoid them. Do not feel you have to go back and correct them. It will only make things more confusing if you do. You post what you think will happen and I will tell you what really happens.

All I need to know right now is whether Wolf will obey the Captain and go to other shuttle instead. (Timing wise, Wolf would get the order before he entered the shuttle) If he does then action will go one way. If he does not and stands with his course of action, it will go another. Neither is better or worse but it is a pinnacle moment. No one should post beyond that.

Okay. Please, please stop referencing old earth movies and TV shows. I seriously doubt they would have keep Spartacus as a treasured memory over two hundred years. Please! I cringe every time I read them.

Asher has seen this before? Really? What kinda places is Asher hanging out when not in the game?

Topic: D&D Next
Subject: D&D

I have been a die-hard 2e fan for most my life but lately I found it lacking and I lost interest in playing D&D completely. I have been looking around for something different that would aid in role playing but would not be hard to throw together for a game.

Would it help if i posted a point form outline of what has gone on so far in what order? Easy to lose track in a forum.

Loki - We are just kidding around, no offense was intended. I poke a lot of fun at Ash/Ody and Tann/Wolf too. Just trying to keep the conversation going with a bit of levity. I am sorry if any of it upset you.

Topic: D&D Next
Subject: next next

I read the first offering they put out and was generally impressed with what they were offering but I have not had the leisure to go back and download more. What i was seeing was similar to your assessment, more of a minimalistic approach with some good ideas thrown in.

Another system I learned about from Tabletop (Youtube) is the Dragon Age RPG. Not so much into the world but the system is straight forward game,easy to learn and has lots to work with as well.

Subject: timing

John went to shuttle, walked in, stared for a few seconds and ran out. So Ash and Wolf would have got the message while locking up the cabinet. I could see the two of you checking it out together though. Maybe reach out to Ody and coordinate your "efforts"?

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Hold on a sec

Albert - The device that Amber is using and the blood are very small so John had to roll a perception check to see it. Wolf does not succeed on a perception roll so you can't react on that knowledge. As well, you would have got the message from John before you reached the shuttle. None of this has to change your reaction if you choose, but the timing is important.

Subject: loaded myth broken Floyd

Unfortunately Lance became too overloaded with real life to continue the Myth Breaker comic. As that comic was about "us", I could never ask anyone else to take it over.

The Adventurers of Floyd Hobart - Professional Dm, I have quite a few scripts written. Brittney moved on but I wouldn't mind getting that one running again.

Olan has 12 scripts of mine from a series using the players and characters of Loaded Dice, that has been lying around for some time.

Subject: let's get biblical

I think it has to do with it being something you did once you were bound together by the bible. I do not know.

PG 13 is intact. Mal walked in on Kayley and Besser in the series. It all depends on camera angles.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: This is why it is called Role Playing

I think you need to channel your inner John. Yelling would be acceptable. Trying to "break them up" might work or even "Umm ... Captain ... I have a ... situation!" on the comm. You might call the guys to help. Calling Willow is possible but you know she is all the way outside and not prone to carrying a comm.

Or there is always the Porn film solution. Walk in, act surprised, join in.

Getting to know each other in a biblical fashion is a another way of saying having sex.
