Yes I have put in a reference to another TV show. I will remind everyone that their character does not know anything about the TV or the characters within. Do not reference them.

Just enjoy the irony.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: five pages of dialogue. Whoa.


What happened here, give me the facts."

“Sir, the one Simon brother attempted to engage Grace in conversation as the client was serving pancakes. She dropped the plate of pancakes and started crying. Loudly. When the bodyguard came in, breaching his word about not drawing his gun, I acted. I subdued the aggressor and neutralized the situation."

Jon looked back Seth and the battery pack on the floor then looked back to her, smiling briefly before saying "Good work".

Angela simply nodded, not quite trusting herself to speak, happiness at the praise flooding her. She blinked as sweat trickled into her eyes and realized that she wasn’t shaking anymore but drenched in sweat as if she’d run for miles. She wiped her face and lifted her hair off the back of her neck to cool down as the Captain issued orders.

“Rick, AJ would you be so kind as to help the good Doctor when she is finished here and carry this man to the sick bay?”

“Doctor”, he said with emphasis and respect, “please call JC when Seth regains consciousness.”

“Captain, Stephanie countered before Angela could explain,” He is conscious. He can hear everything we are saying right now but cannot move or speak. Angela effectively disarmed him, and incapacitated Seth in the most efficient manner.”

“18 seconds.” Grace interjected with a muffled giggle.

“Wuo duh MA!”* JC swore.

“Really?” Stephanie sounded shocked. She then turned to Angela, “I apologize if my initial reaction was unkind. You acted in a very controlled manner to protect the passenger and crew.”

“JC… when Seth is able to understand please remind him again of the dangers of carrying weapons onboard a freighter and that his cooperation to leaves these in safe place would be appreciated."

“Yes sir captain.” JC said.

“Actually Captain.” Stephanie said, “If the brothers could help me get Seth to a chair, I can work on him here. I suspect that he might need to hear what is said. Lilianna has nothing to fear from him and frankly I doubt she did in the first place.”

Grace leaned towards Angela and whispered “Don’t worry, you aren’t in trouble. Nice job by the way, very impressive.”

Angela nodded, patting Grace’s arm to show her appreciation, but something she’d heard before Seth had arrived came back to her. As Jon sat down at the table next to the mess and the still quaking Lillian, JC nearby, he says, “Now would be a good time to tell us everything.”

Lilianna took a few deep breathes as Catie attempted to soothe her into calmness. The brothers helped Seth get into a chair by the table just as the Doctor put a vial into her hypo-spray and gave a shot to Seth in the back. “This will help but you will be a bit ... euphoric for a few hours.”

The Simons slowly moved to the doorway as if to leave and let things that weren’t there business be told.

“Do I know Daniel?” Angela rather loudly whispered to Grace. As heads turned to look at her, she hitched her shoulders uncomfortably, hating how she forgot important things. “Well, she, “ indicating Lilliana with a lift of her chin,” wailed for him so I guess he’s important. Do I know him? They certainly do,“ she finished, looking squarely at the Simon brothers.

“No!” snapped AJ

“Yes.” Replied Rick sheepishly.

“Rick!”

“AJ!”

“I told you to let me handle this!”

“Handle it? What have you gorram handled? We are just getting deeper and deeper!” Rick retorted angrily.

“I said I would come up with a plan!”

“Great! A plan. Just like Dad. When was this plan coming?”

“Hey! We have 4 days still. We ain’t done nothing wrong.”

“WE AIN’T DONE NOTHING RIGHT AJ!!!”

The brothers stop and stare at each other for a second. AJ shrugs his shoulders, “Yeah. You’re right Rick. But this is family business.”

“Oh we are one big happy family here on Destiny.” Stephanie piped in cheerfully, “Isn’t that right Captain? So pull up chairs boys and let the little lady talk and then you can share too.”

“Dad was crazy, AJ.” Rick says seriously.

“No Rick, he wasn’t. Trust me on that.” AJ replied evenly as he sat back down.

Lilianna dabbed her eyes and sighed a few times before she could get started, “Well. My mother, Belle was my Step-daddy’s secretary round about the time that his first wife left him. She ran off with a ranch-hand and hurt my step-daddy really bad. My mom was there for him during that time. They got along well because my daddy had taken off too, but not with the Baron’s wife. He just disappeared when my mom told him she was pregnant. Anyway, long story short - they ended up marrying and the Baron adopted me as his own. He was always good to me. I mean, he was often away on business and the like but he never spoke harsh to me or raised his hand. He always sent me gifts and the best schools. He got a mite upset when I started working for my mother’s charities because he didn’t like the way the media called me Princess but after awhile he saw they meant in a nice way and let me be. Even after my mom died from the diseases she picked up when helping the farmers and Miners, he still allowed me to continue her work.

“I met Daniel Blake on the farm, he was a ranch hand there. We sorta got to know each other because he liked horses so very much, just like me. Anyway, I knew that The Baron wouldn’t approve of Daniel since he’s a ranch hand but he had been working with the local vet who said he had a natural skill with animals and with someone to back him financially, he could become a veterinarian, who are always in high demand. So I thought that if I asked my step-dad, he would be willing to help out.”

“Shiny.” Asante said shaking her head, “Bet that went over well.”

“No. He told me that he had arranged for me to marry Templeton Steele. He dismissed Daniel as a gold-digger and told me that he expected me to do as he said.” Lilianna began to tear up again, “He told me never to see Daniel again and then made the announcement to the media like it was my idea. So I made up the idea of a kidnapping plot and spread the rumour around through the friends I have in the press. I thought he’d call off the wedding but instead he assigned a bodyguard and changed the wedding plans.”

Asante suddenly sat up, “Wait a gorram minute. YOU made up the kidnapping plot? Tā mā de! Tā mā de! gǒu niáng yǎng de!

“I just wanted him to stop the wedding!” Lilianna cried, “Seth was nice enough to let me see Daniel again, just to say goodbye but I found I couldn’t do it. I loved him so. But Seth told my Step-dad and he told me that if I didn’t stop seeing Daniel, he’d have him killed. After that, Daniel disappeared and I was told if I married Templeton and did as I was told, then ....Daniel would be allowed to live. So I have been living a lie, never able to go anywhere without someone watching me. I have to betray the man I love in order to keep him alive – it just isn’t fair!”

Both brothers bury their faces in their hands and then all eyes turn to Seth who is trying very hard to move his head but can only manage a slight shake. Stephanie says, “I believe he is trying to say he didn’t tell your step-dad. The way Seth came in here to save you thinking you were in trouble, plus sneaking you out to see the boyfriend one last time – I don’t think he is your conspirator.”

“I don’t even know if Daniel is alive!” Lillianna dissolved into tears.

“Umm....He is alive.” Rick mumbled.

“Rick!”

“AJ!”

“You gonna get us all killed.”

“No. I am gonna get us all help. We need help. You can brood for four days but in the end, we are over our heads, knee deep in Go Sa and covered in crazy sauce.”

AJ stared at his brother and then finally said, “Go ahead. Be my guest. We’ll be lucky if they don’t let Miss Super Soldier there paralyse us and stuff our bodies out the airlock.”

Rick stood up. “First off, I’d like to say that we have no intentions of harming Daniel further.”

Lilianna screamed hysterically.

“Nice opening College-boy. They teach you that in uppity crust school?” AJ asked.

“Sorry! Sorry! We ... umm ... well. Dad ... I don’t know where to start.”

AJ stood up, “Hi. I’m AJ. This is Rick and that is about as much truth as we’ve told you. We ain’t Simons. Our family name is Winchester and our family has a long standing business of ...”

“AJ, I really don’t think we need to cover the family business.” Rick interjected.

AJ gave his brother a pissed off look, “Our Dad was killed a little while back.”

“He had a heart attack.” Rick interrupted again.

“You want to take over again Mr Smoothspeare?” AJ shot back, “He was killed. It was made to look like a heart attack but our dad did not die from a heart attack. An artifact that has been in our family for a long time was stolen and he killed my dad to get it. The artifact was a gun that dates back to Earth that was – called the Colt. The person who killed him, was Templeton Steele.”

“But we don’t have a shred of evidence to prove this claim.” Rick said while crossing his arms.

“All the more reason to believe it, Rick. Trust me. Templeton has the Colt.”

“Yeah. I am sure we will find it in a display case in his personal collection.”

“Anyway. In order to get close to Steele, we ... obtained some false ID and connected up with Badger as security men. It was really quite easy to do.”

“Scarily so. That guy should do better background checks.” Rick laughed.

“We had heard from a guy that Badger was trying to get into business with the Baron and Steele. So we thought we would be signed on as extra security, get close Steele and then retrieve the Colt. That was the plan. It didn’t go that way and Badger asked us to deal with a local guy who ...” AJ looked over at Lilianna, “We were told was stalking you and causing a problem and told us to ... well ... to convince him to stay put that the ranch until the young lady was underway. I am sorry Lilianna, we didn’t know.”

Asante snorted loudly, “I guess you should have done better background checks.”

AJ glowered at the wedding planner, “It then got worse. Just before we got on this ship, Badger pulled us aside and told us. “He paused and then went on against his better judgement, “That we were to report to Baron Fairchild as soon as we arrive on the yacht so we can .... dispose of Daniel permanently and make sure no one finds his umm body.”

Rick put up both hands, “Which we are not going to do! No way. We just haven’t quite figured out how to tell the Baron that we aren’t going to do that and still manage to break into Steele personal collection to steal the Colt back.” Rick put his hands down and folded them before. “It sounded much better in myr heads than when I just said it outloud.”

“Ay yi yi.” Asante said ruefully, “I am sorry Lilianna, You are being played as a pawn in this, a bargaining chip really.”

“What do you mean?”Lilianna asked sadly.

“I mean 900,000 Hectare of land, owned by Steele and being signed over to Baron Optimus Fairchild for your hand in marriage. The land is stuffed to the gills with platinum deposits and the Baron owns only half, until you marry Steele and then he will have it all. You are the highest paid companion in history, Princess and your daddy is your pimp.”

You’d have expected Lilianna to explode into tears again but this tidbit of news made her angry – very angry. “What?” she hissed, “How do you know this? Who told you this lie!”

“Oh Sweetheart, Men will tell you anything and everything to impress you afterwards.” She said with a flutter of her eyebrows. “And I know how to do background checks.”

Subject: The throne


The throne is five feet across and has room for two Cidals if possibly two humans. The first thing that Dudley can confirm is Ivan's assessment of the chair - it is not comfortable. No padding, just a big hunk of rock. The arms to the throne arm made of wood staffs, lacquered together. On both arms are three buttons, two yellow and one red in a descending fashion. The buttons are not labeled. (so 6 buttons total)

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: Welcome to the jungle, we got fun and games


Deciding to test a theory, the party exits the wine cellar through the same portal they came through to see if they would arrive in the room they had left. Instead of finding themselves in the dining room as they had hoped, they arrive in a very large throne room.

The Grand Throne room is an awe-inspiring structure, with floors and walls composed of black marble with veins of gold. The pillars lining the room are clear purple crystal and illuminate the room with a purple glow. The dark, starry ceiling is made of lapis lazuli, and has gems worked into fine gold decorations around it. At the head of the room is a raised dais 5’ high, upon which four titanic human skulls, each 10' across, rest facing the opposite end of the hall. Centered between the skulls is an oversized throne, rising an additional 10' above the dais, reachable by a staircase. A bright red light shines down upon the throne. (Yes. It is like a 80’s metal band stage)

The throne is composed of a single block of black jet stone encrusted with rubies and amethysts; its value is beyond reason or counting. The backing and the arms of the throne appear to be composed of hundreds of staffs, wands and rods. It is raised an additional five feet above the dais level, with a series of steps leading up to it.

Ivan says, “Oh! Oh! Oh! I’ve been here. That chair is not comfortable at all and if you sleep on it one of the heads rises up and screams at you to bow. I remember that it scared me and I ran out that portal behind the throne. I came out in the wine cellar! So I had a drink or two and passed out in the barrel dudes. I came in through that north portal after being in a room with a whole bunch of ugly dudes. Not ugly like those guys in the bath but they could be like family ugly. Dig?”

Subject: Ody is right


You have no way of knowing which is true north or east so you have to destroy your chart and stop working on what door leads to what.

And you are all starving to death now.(No. not really)

Ody - Why do you continue to make suggestions to the DM of your demise?

If we were playing around the table, you'd see the map and do the same thing so I figure may as well online. It is not easy and it can be so frustrating as to end the game if you don't get a little direction.
