Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: and here we go.


Destiny Galley Day Two of Journey. 9:45 am ST

Lilianna has a few moments of confusion in the galley but only because she doesn't know the system where things are kept. She seems to actually enjoy working in the kitchen and help making breakfast. She doesn't say much as Her and Catie work together and it seems as if she is almost afraid to speak but her eyes seek out Catie's for some reassurance of direction. Despite her lofty status as a media darling, she has no qualms about serving people.

Grace snagged one of the pancakes and answered Rick, “I do have someone who helps me whenever I need it. Do you have an interest in mechanics?”

"Somewhat. I have a replica of an earth that was 67 Chevy Impala. I replaced the entire engine with a fusion thruster from a MF-813 Hover MULE."

"Not a replica." AJ said loudly.

""Of course it was AJ."

"NO. Dad said it was in the family since the beginning."

"Yeah well Dad was..."

"Don't you dare Rick. Do not cross that line!"

A cold tense moment passes between the brothers and they seem to be communicating again without talking. Then Rick gets up, "Sorry to have bothered your meal, Grace, maybe we can talk later." and then he returns to his seat beside his brother looking all grim again.

Lilianna froze where she stood between table. Her face stared to become redder and redder and her body was trembling. She dropped the plate of pancakes she was holding and started to cry loudly. A desperate crying of someone scared and frightened.

Destiny Gym Day Two of Journey. 9:45 am ST

Reaching the exercise room JC played the gentleman and allowed Asante to enter first. Within minutes Seth took off his shirt to reveal a white under-vest beneath took off the gun from his side to place it on a shelf nearby. JC watched as he began putting the heaviest weights onto the bar. Then his attention was captured by Asante as she stripped off her business jacket and trousers to reveal a black Lycra mesh body suit underneath.

“Is this okay gentlemen or should I go change?”

“No I think that will do.” JC replied as he loosened up, once again smiling his approval of the ‘Wedding Planners’ body.

JC noted that Seth was in excellent shape and had little problem working with heavy weights. He has signs as scars from war wounds, some probably being treated while in battle and therefore not fixed with a dermal mender hence the scars. But Asante was also bearing scars of war as well. Definite sign of defensive wounds from knives on her arm and she had been shot in the arms or leg more than once.

“So tell me Asante what you got planned for the Ladies wedding? Anything special or unique?

"Oh, it was going the be the wedding to talked about for some time. All the pomp and pageantry you'd expect from a royal wedding or at least people with enough cash to buy royalty . Buy that completely changed once the tales of kidnapping and killing of the princess started up. Now, the wedding is on the cruise liner the day after you arrive with Lilianna at noon. Baron paid a pretty penny for my services and then I ended up with nothing to do but act as a chaperone."

“Ok that’s different and the after wedding reception?”

"No idea but as I have heard there isn't one. I believe that Templeton is taking his prize and bringing her home to the trophy case as soon as the ink dries on the legal papers."

JC could not help but cough a little in surprise. “You called her his prize? Is that all the Lady is to him? Something won in a (Add a game type here?) game.

The gunfighter could not help but shake his head in disbelief.

"Did you lose your arm in the war?" Seth asks as if wanting to change the subject, "I mean no offence, but it looks rather cumbersome so I was thinking it might be from the war."

“No not the war, it was after we lost it, a little misadventure as a street boss enforcer on a money run gone bad. Woke up with it in the hospital, a get well gift from my employer you might say.”

Asante furled her brow for a second, "Wait a second. JC. Are you That JC? Fought for Independents? Hear a few stories about your shooting hand - hope your weren't left handed."

Smiling JC looked over to Asante and found himself against his better judgment liking the look of sweat on her body. “I don’t know what you heard, honestly most of those type of tales are *Mi Tian Gohn, but yeah I’m that JC.”

"Well I heard a lot of good things about you in the war. Nice to work with you."

Smiling a more roguish type of smile, his eyes full of meaning, JC nodded his head in thank you. “So is this the first time you have worked with Seth here?” He asked her to keep the conversation going between them. He had to admit it was not so much about gathering info anymore as to possibly getting some alone time with ‘The Wedding Planner’.

Asante smiled devilishly, "Yes but we really don't work together as much as avoid getting in each other's way, isn't that right Seth?"

"I saw no need to involve myself in the planning of the wedding beyond the security protocols." Seth answers coldly. JC trying not to let yet another smile escape at the twos clear dislike of the other addressed Seth once again.

“Seth if I may ask, how long you been running sec for Lilianna?"

"Since the threats began which was a little less than six months ago. I was serving the Baron up until then but he asked me to watch her as a personal favor."

“Oh so you’re more the Baron’s man then Lilianna’s ok. May I ask what’s the Baron really like and why he’s marrying off his daughter to, as Asante put it, a ‘trophy collector’?”

Seth face becomes a mask of impassiveness and he puts the bar back into the holder above his head, “The Baron gave my father a job when no one else would. The Baron gave my mother and myself a home and a means to survive during the dark times of the war. He has never been more than honourable with me and I will not judge a man by the words of others.” Seth grabbed a towel and wiped himself down. ‘As to Mr. Steele. Well...”

Stepping back JC realized, though he had gained a bit of useful information in this last bit, he had also hit a nerve with Seth that he had not meant to and moved to correct it quickly.

“My apologies Seth I was not bad mouthing the Baron I just can’t see a man of his good standing allowing his daughter to marry this guy Steele. Does this guy have something on the Baron some type of leverage maybe?

“I remember the weapons of Steele failing on the battlefield, I watched men die when their battery pack failed and or blew up in their face. I believe both sides suffered from ... faulty equipment. I can judge a man by his actions JC. But my duty is to protect Lilianna, not question her judgement.”

Nodding his head in agreement, JC was about to ask what side Seth had been on in the war even though he knew that answer in his gut already, when Asante spoke up..

“C’mon Seth.” Asante said, this time without the edge in her tone, “You know that something ain’t right!”

“Seth, even Asante agrees with me it seems” Turning to her JC smiles “We just need to find out what isn’t right in all this.”

Seth opened his mouth to answer when suddenly there was the sound of a plate crashing to the floor and then a woman crying loudly and hysterically. Seth leapt up and ran to the doorway , putting his gloved hand in the air and shouting Qiāng!. The gun that he left on the shelf suddenly leapt off the shelf and flew across to Seth's waiting hand as he ran out and down the hallway.

Asante laughed sardonically, "He may not like what Templeton did during the war but he does like that toy. " she grabbed her suit jacket and throw it over her shoulders, "I'm sure you need to attend to the drama so let's go but I'd love to talk later."

Destiny Galley Day Two of Journey. 9:46 am ST

As Lilianna cried there was a sound of running feet and Seth came into the galley with weapon in hand, but held up in check. JC and Asante close behind him

"GUN!!!" Rick screamed and he attempted to throw himself in front of Grace. AJ stood up and was trying to calm Lilianna down, "Hey whoa. Rick and I are brothers. we fight all the time. No need to get upset."

"I WANT DANIEL!!!!" She cries out through the tears.

"Daniel?" AJ says his eyes going wide..

"Daniel?" Rick repeats with the same expression.

Seth lowers the gun, "Lilianna. You told me he left you and ..."

"I lied! I lied about the kidnapping. I lied about Daniel. I lied to protect him. I lied to protect myself. I keep lying and hoping it will get better but it won't get better..." she sobbed uncontrollably, falling to the ground of the galley. "I've lost him."

So I was wondering ...


The reveal of who is the mole is coming soon. At this point, who do you think is the traitor? Just like to see if I made it obvious.

Subject: suggestions


the crew list was just a suggestion based on my experience as a GM for Serenity. Not necessarily a have to be the crew markup. As always I want people happy with their characters. If you have no medic, I will put an auto-doc on board. If you all have gun skills you don't need to have a single fighter type.

Subject: groupwise


How do you guys prefer to play thisÉ Do you want assigned rank to determine who makes decisions or do you want an collective leadership with rank falling to the most qualified in a situation?

Does anyone really want to be leader?

We have five confirmed players and there will be one NPC who is the expert on the ADP Jump drive. Based on what I have sen in other games, you need a pilot, a mechanic, a Public Relations man (fighter),a medic and a generalist.

Kinda silly. In this game, ignore aging unless your character crosses the 60 year mark.

Topic: Traveller game interest?
Subject: broke the machine


I had a series of tests today, won;t know results for a week.

Some thought on the rules as I re-read them:

Aging effect - start at 34? Who wrote these rules? 18 years old. With modern science and the future I would say to double that before worrying about aging.

Dynamic Initiative - I am not a fan but I will try it out at first.

Like the combat system. Simple but effect and the vehicle/ship combat works well in my head.

Not sure how to smoothly intergrate Effect into the pbp game without it becoming clunky. Will think it over.

With the undead mice, you had the liberty of closing the door and casting the "Combine". The spell takes a round to cast so you will definitely be overrun by rodents before you can complete the spell and then turn the ROUS.

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: The next room


Without a clear sense of direction, the party decides to try the steam room exit. Ivan is not pleased with this decision by he goes with it anyway.

Upon finding the portal you step into another room. A large U-shaped dining table and 12 chairs take up half the room. Tapestries that once covered the walls have been tom down and are mounded in one corner to a depth of about 4 feet, covering several of the chairs and part of the table. Two fireplaces glow with fires. There are black openings in each of the four walls. A short, two legged, watermelon-shaped, metallic object lies under the table.

There are ten Giant (about 4 feet long, so almost large dog size)) rats in this room, with a majority of them feasting on the flesh of two bodies lying on the floor. Judging by the blood, they were killed recently. The rats have the same glowing red eyes and partially decomposed bodies that the Mice had in the kitchen. They are undead and they are leaving their feast to move towards you.

Ivan screams rather loudly, "By the Catlord! It's the Rats again! You said you killed them!" He frantically searches around for a place to climb up.

If she does not post before Friday, I will have Grace blush, mumble something while eating food and end up embarrassed as she spills oatmeal over her top.

With that in mind, I have set a deadline for myself to get this game started by the end of May at the latest.

So please bear with me.
