Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: screw it

Here is one of my crudely drawn maps.

Willow, Brigit and Sam are in N. Wyatt is coming out of the passageway at M. Wolf and Ash are about four diagonal squares to the right to M. Pearson is down the shaft somewhere near the L. A is the elevator that works. K is the passageway to it, that Willow, Wyatt and Sam walked down. Everything from J to O is really unstable and is likely to crash down if a loud noise is made.

It would help me move the game along if I knew what Wyatt will do when he gets back up in the drift. Once he climbs the stairs he will hear the last part of Pearson's taunt and Ash's challenge back. Remember the drift is like a "b" on the side with the stem at top. Ash, Wolf are in the stem, you are in the circle part.

Subject: what I am getting

Ash pulled the pin and is holding the spoon. As long as he holds it tight, he could put the pin back in and walk away if everything worked out for him.

Apparently you can also disarm the grenade by unscrewing the top off and thereby remive the strike and precussion cap from the denonator.

So a very very very well aimed shot from a rifle could hit the grenade in his hand, destroying the striker and thereby rendering it useless. Chance are though it would blow of Ash's hand or fingers and make him drop the grenade.

Guess it all depends on how much Senor Psychopath believes in his skills, or is worried about dying.

More movement on the thread that a Reaver in a Lovebot Factory! Woohoo! I love it.

Robert is joining you for the next adventure as a passenger. Ash has survived a lot in this campaign so I am hoping he'll be around.

And those cybernetic hands are almost lifelike.

Subject: Mythbusters

I need to know a few things and relate them into game terms.

How long from flip to boom?

How does the grenade work? Flip the top cause x to move to y and then z.

And the Mythbusters question - can you disarm a grenade with a high powered rifle by destroying the trigger mechanism?

I will call the boys and see if we can get Kari to dress like Lara Croft for the episode.

Accirding to the book there are five crew rooms, two double three single. Then there are four passenger dorms, two doubles two singles. So there is plenty of room for all. I seem to remember that Willow had one of the passenger doubles as she wanted to be near infirmary.

Rob character is coming as a passenger at the start if next campaign. Game will begin after some time has passed so you can use your advancement points and spend any money on upgrades.

There is a number of ways to arrange residents in a firefly. I know we had it mapped out once but that might have been lost in the rdinn crash of long ago.

Topic: Looking for something to do
Subject: rules

Rule based games are somewhat easy to do online as the DM ends up controlling the dice rolling.

I think Almerin was starting a free form game. As well there was some talk of Eol doing a superhero type game as well.

Questions means you are thinking which is good. So ask away.

Wolf just got shot three times in the chest - I think that qualifies as a VERY BAD DAY!!

That's fine, just wanted to make sure it wasn't forgoten. You play Sam as you see fit. Even with making the resistance roll I could see Brigit's attempt to turn you against each other as a moment of clarity.

Subject: in and out

Do we need one of my patented crude maps? I hope not but if it will help.... Picture a "b" on its side, stem at top. the round part is the old shaft and the doorway below. The stem is the drift that goes all the way to the new elevator shaft. So if you collaspe the drift, the way to the elevator will be cut off, assuming you survive the cave in.

Wolf and Ash are in the drift close to the old shaft. Luke is further down the drift, but you don't know where.

Inside the vault, I think it has been lost or omitted, but Sam saw what looked like a data disk reader attached to the back wall. It looked like part of the old ship and was not turned on.

Hornsilver Mine - Old Shaft, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:35 am Planet Time

“Gorram it’s nice to have you around, thanks..... I’d say you spread that Mustard pretty thin.“

“Yeah well it’s nice someone thinks so as I'm lousy at making sandwiches" Wolf said with a smile that did not reach his eyes as he reloaded the shotgun and placed it back into the holster on his back.

“We’d better search him, he may have a suppressor to use on that rifle; I don’t think we want to chance to many more shotgun blasts...... We’d better prepare for that Lurn Shwei Jah Jwohn Sheriff to return too.”said Asher.

“Already done” Wolf replied as he drew his left sided Beretta, checked the clip and slide to make sure they had not been effected by the fall, then re-holstered it back under his arm. Doing the same to the Beretta under his right arm he kept this one in his hand, safety off, ready to fire.

“I sure hope he’s the last of them, I don’t have too many more places left that family ain’t thumped.”

“Amen to that my friend, you up to continue?”

There is a rapid secession of three pop noises, like water balloons breaking at a kids party. Wolf grunts loudly as the first bullet hits him, then a second and third all clustered to the chest. the big mechanic falls to the ground as Asher out of sheer instinct and survival throw himself to the floor and close to the wall. The shots came from the darkness of the drift, and from the same darkness comes a cold laughter.

"Sorry Talhone, but your friend there doesn't seem to understand that this haft is unstable. Couldn;t have him shoot of that shotgun again." Pearson voice comes out of the gloom. "You are fast boy! Almost as fast as me, but you ain't got a hope so why don't you just throw you weapons my way and stand up nice and slow."

Hornsilver Mine - Secret Room, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:35 am Planet Time

“That’s the big bad wolf, and he’s a huffin’ and a puffin’,” he said, following it up with a nervous giggle.

Out of the corner of his eye, Wyatt watched Brigit run over to a crate nearby where a crowbar is resting. "Here! I'll show you." she says as she grabs the crowbar and heads towards the coffin with the intent to smash open the glass.

Willow hissed a Bengali curse that still managed to sound musical and charming as she stepped around the casket to put herself between Brigit and the casket, dropping the analyser into the open casket. Setting herself firmly in the tai chi stance of Moving Clouds.

With a fluid turn, Wyatt leveled his Colt at Bridget and said, “Don’t.”

Brigit's eyes flicker from Willow to the captain to Sam and then she stops and drops the crowbar at her feet. "All this treasure and we are gonna do what? Walk away? You know Captain Wyatt Sung, I knew that you were gonna be the hard one in this job. let me guess, you lost someone in the war, I'd guess a loving wife and kids too? Most men could fill that void with this much cash but not you. And all the whispered promises I could give you wouldn't rile up your manhood either. Of course if you did strike it big then your people would get equal shares right? And then they would have no reason to stay with you would they? Willow could pursue all those things she would like to do as a wealthy woman, and Sam could get his own ship if he wanted. Then you'd be alone in an empty ship, just you and whatever bottle of whiskey you'd crawl into. Isn't that right Captain?"

Brigit looks over at Sam and then Willow, "Are you really gonna let him ruin your chance for a big score? Sam? This much cash and you'd be free -truly free. No more hiding? Aren't you tired of hiding?"

OOC: Brigit is attempting to turn you against each other and it is not working (you all made your resistance rolls)

Wolf - You have been hit bad. Very bad. Would you like to use a plot point or two to lessen the damage?
