Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
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.

Subject: Looking for Browncasts


Hello,

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.

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?

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.

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"?

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.

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.

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.

Subject: Here we go


LV-426,Outside of Rocinante 7:00 am PT

Willow looked around at the passengers of the cruise liner. They all seemed so lost and out of place on this undeveloped planet in their now dirty finery and outfits. Captain Havlock and Lord Hood were moving around to each grouping of people, speaking to them and trying to keep them calm. The young ladies that all looked the same and dressed the same were clustered around the lady who was there guardian. Willow did not know her from the society circles but she had been out of touch for awhile. The girls were not related, that much was sure, although one was most likely the Lady’s daughter.

Portia Amber was trailing Lord Hood, chatting him up and smiling broadly. No doubt the Lord was a good catch as a wealthy single man. Meanwhile Amber Sunshine Amber was nowhere to be seen. She also did not see the young lady who asked about Fu Sheng nor Cameron Bridges, although some passengers had stayed in the cargo bay.

The band members clustered together and the small man with the case was pacing back and forth as the others attempted to calm him down. Willow turned to the monk on her arm and muttered in a low voice that wouldn't carry. "I'd start with that fellow."

Sifu nodded and the two of them walked towards the group. Fu Sheung whispered back, “I am not at my best right now, I have to admit. I can not ... feel what I would normally. I think it maybe is the injury is hampering my gift. However I can see he is clearly agitated.”

As they approach the small man immediately backs away behind the others and a tall, rather stout gentleman steps forward to greet Willow and Sifu. “Hello. I am Roland of the Star’s orchestra. Please allow me to thank you for your timely rescue and efforts. No doubt we’d not be here without them.” He says and smiles a smile that is sincere but his eyes flash concern for his fellow band member. Both Willow and Sifu can see that his shoulders tense as if fearing a fight but hoping for not.

(assuming some greeting back. Asking how they are doing)

“We are well. Hoping that we will be able to go home soon. Have you managed to get a signal out?”

(some positive affirmation that they are doing their best. Why is your friend so jittery?)

“Ahh... Well. He has something on his mind. He will be fine once the rescue team comes. “The big man replies and looks back at the other man, “Justin? Perhaps if you talk to these people you’d feel better?”

“You know I can’t Roland!” He calls back, hugging the briefcase protectively.

“Justin! This seems to be a special situation. I do not think a monk and a Doctor are trying to steal it?”

Justin shakes his head but then the others start to reassure him that it is okay. He seems to mull it over and then begins to step forward with the case still held tightly in his grip.

*SLAP*

“Ow! Why did you hit me?”

“You sir are no gentleman!”

“Of course not. I’m a physicist!”

Just as the musician was coming forward, a fight breaks out between two passengers. The commotion is between the lady with the young girls and the tall young man who fainted before in the engine room. The tall man is holding his face gingerly and the lady looks mad enough to kill.

“Why are you mad at me? I wasn’t suggesting a sexual relationship with you.”

*SLAP*

“Ow! Help Me! This lady is assaulting my face! Someone protect my face!”

With all eyes sudd3enly on the spat developing the musician slinks away behind the others again.


LV-426,Inside of Rocinante Cockpit 7:05 am PT

Tess had done as much as she could at this point. They would be needing her outside with the passengers or helping with repairs. She powered down her station and put the proximity alert on to her comm. Link channel so it would signal her if anything was coming nearby.

As Tess step through the kitchen, she smelled the pleasant scent of Ma’s cooking and saw the older lady working away, adding ingredients to her largest stock pot. A nice hearty soup would go a long way.

Tess continued down into the cargo bay. Most passengers had moved out but there was a young lady with a silver case still there. Tess then noticed the two men standing on the plankway, obviously watching the other lady. Tess didn’t like this for a second so she turned on her heels and watched over the girl. “Hey there. I’m Tess, pilot of Rocinante. You okay? Them fellas seem to have an interest in you.”

LV-426, Outside of Rocinante Cargo Bay 7:15 am PT

Wyatt and Ash returns and had a quick discussion with Wolf about the state of the ship. Wyatt was not keen on splitting up the crew right now but the situation demanded they watch the flock and fix the ship. No telling when help would arrive. Wolf and John would take a shuttle, leaving the mule here by the ship, just in case. The turbine would be heavy and need lifting anyway, possibly from a upper air shaft. But the captain did not want all his strong arms away from the ship so he told Wolf that Ash was to stay here unless he was truly needed and to keep the comm. lines open. So Wolf and Asher when off to gather up the weapons, ammo and the tools that would be needed, while John would warm up the shuttle and meet them in the engine room to gather equipment. Wyatt looked over to see Willow and Sifu seem to be dealing with a scuffle with a couple of passengers while Tess was talking to another passenger. The smell of soup cooking filled his nostrils and that was the highlight of the day so far.

John decided to take the shuttle over the damaged pod as it would have to be moved to do repairs anyway. Upon entering the doorway though he was greeted by a sight he was not expecting. A pair of passengers were in the shuttle and ....well getting very friendly with each other in a biblical fashion. John stood there for a second or two, more out of shock than any desire to watch what was going on. The girl was the one who had propositioned him early, Amber Sunshine he vaguely remembered. The man was older by far and John thought he had seen him talking to Willow before like they knew each other. John cleared his throat loudly and banged his fist on the doorway. Surprisingly, even though they both clear looked over and saw him, neither stopped what they were doing. It was like they were in some sort of sexual frenzy.

Well now, I have a lot of missing players. In fact, other than Teller, all my "new" players seem to have vanished on me. Now I understand busy, I really do and I think I play this game as laid back as a GM can be, but I expect an email or message once in awhile to let me know what is going on. I am running too many NPCs now and I want this game to move. Some have not posted since Nov and I have to beg for them to send me an email.

So I will be moving the game forward again tonight or tomorrow. John will go with Wolf, Tess will go with Willow to help outside and Sifu will "feel" a need to fine Jessie.

If I do not get a post from Loki, Celeste or Eol by the end of the month, I will consider them gone for good. I will manage the characters to the end or offer them to other players.
