Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: There is a lot here


You have not truly dealt with the Baron or Templeton so you do not really know. Templeton made his money off the war by playing both sides, using stats to make the casualties look smaller and making the defects look like an advantage because the other side was getting it worse. He made close allies in the alliance which is why he is still selling guns

The Baron has a rep for being ruthless at business and not a man to cross. However you only have Lilianna's word against Seth. Maybe JC can recount what Seth said in the exercise room.

No doubt you are in a tough situation. My advice, decide who you trust and let the chips fall where they may.

Subject: but wait - there's more


Rage burned in Jon eyes, “Angela..Grace.. I want that transmitter ….now! And if you can’t find it then you may ask Asante…any ..way ..you.. wish..to turn it over to you!”

“JC..Until we sort all this out I want you to sit on this Jien Huo.”(cheap floozy)

Turning on the wedding planner,“Asante shao jeh, I don’t know how you survived the war by making so many stupid decisions. … a consortium of former Browncoats?.Really?...they’re either a bunch misguided vigilante fools at best to The Black Dragon at the worst and I can’t believe you’ve done at background check?”

Jien Huo!?" Asante called out curtly to Jon, "You weren't complaining about me being a Jien Huo! back on Hera when you and I got caught under a heavy bombardment and held up in that church! I'm not surprised that you don't remember me Captain, you really weren't all that interested in my face that night and we both thought we'd were dead! But a lot has happened since then as I got a profession doing what I like and you got really gorram stupid! At least I remembered your face.

"Let me take a page from Grace's book here! You were running low on luck, taking whatever job you could when this golden opportunity came up. A man of means - Badger I believe, came up with a great job, not great pay but would get you into the right circles? Am I right? Oh! And your ship is one of a kind and not registered? Come on Captain! You are being played like a cheap fiddle. You and everyone on this ship is expendable. Do you think the Baron is gonna allow loose ends? People that could talk? You need me! You need my help! Lock me in whatever passes as a brig on this ship but in the end, you can't get out of this situation without me. I am offering you profit and a chance to take out The Templeton Colt Steele." She stood up and stared back at Jon with a similar rage, "How many men of yours died Captain because their battery packs failed, or gases fouled their system, or faulty discharge? How many kids did not go home because Templeton wanted to shave off a few credits from his bottom line? Together we can take him down but without me, you don't have a chance. Neither your crew or ship were ever in danger from me Jon, but they are in danger of you right now."

I may joke about giving the GM ideas but I never change plans after the fact unless for a reason like the plan is revealed. I pride myself on villians that do make mistakes and have weaknesses.

There are a few flaws in this plan but they would be revealed as you research.

Subject: Dance for Wembley. Dance


"I want those creatures," Wembley commanded, indicating the rest of the party, "to be released and left unhindered. They are our guests. Make sure no harm comes to them."

The gigantic beholder moves away from the throne and floats towards the party, “VERY WELL. YOU HAVE BEEN GRANTED MERCY BY LORD PUTNAM THE GREAT. OBEY ALL HIS COMMANDS AND WHIMS OR ELSE WE SHALL RETURN TO EAT YOUR FLESH AND DRAG YOU SOUL DOWN INTO HELL!!!!”

The beholders all vanish again in puffs of smoke and the lighting in the room returns to normal. You are left alone with the silver pole still up before the stairs.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: so violent


You have a moral dilemma, wrapped in a "how do we get paid" tortilla and smothered in a "who do we trust" sauce. But I am not sure you are at the point where you can start shoving people out the airlock as a solution.

If you drop off L at the liner, then you should get paid as was planned, right? What you do after that is on your own dime. Maybe you could sweet talk you way into an invite to the wedding? Perhaps you could say the brothers hired you to take them back with a "package" from the cruise liner? Perhap you can draw guns and blast your way on and off of the ship and retain something of a good reputation.

The brothers do not want to kill Daniel.
Lilianna does not want to marry Templeton.
Asante's consortium does not want the marriage to happen.
Asante has been ordered not to hurt anyone.

So in many ways, you are all on the same page.

It is your ship and the doctor has a hypo spray full of muscle relaxant. Could be interesting.

You need a cunning plan. A foolproof cunning plan that won't survive first contact with the enemy.

Ask yourself, what would Mal do?

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: I had to reply to that post.


“Not to mention we still don’t know what this one is hiding.”

Asante smiled innocently, “What do you mean? I’m just ...”

“Oh please, I am not an idiot. In less than 24 hours, ... (you read it before) ... being a soldier,” Grace turned her head and asked “Captain, J.C do either of you want to tell us which one it is?”

Asante holds up her hands, “Okay. Okay! You have made your point Engineer Lady!” She looks over at Jon, “I have to hand it to you Captain; you have quite a crew here. I underestimated you and them when I came on board.” She sipped her coffee and looked over everyone staring at her, waiting for her story.

“I am Asante Okoro. I am an independent operator working for a ...let’s call them a consortium of former Browncoats who are looking to make Templeton Colt Steele pay for every life he cost in the war and all the profits he made off our dead. The lady here is right, I fought in the war, have lots of scars to show for it and when the war ended, I found that my skill sets were in high demand.

“My job is to make sure that Templeton’s marriage to Lilianna never happens and to force him to sign over the mineral rights he is giving the Baron to my consortium instead.” She looks over to Lilianna and smiles sweetly, “And I have to do that without bloodshed. They gave me very specific orders on that. No one hurt. I do love a challenge and having my hands tied at the same time.

(assuming someone asks how were you gonna do that?)

“The plan was to kidnap the Princess here, hold her hostage and demand the rights as ransom. But that was before I realized that you have a crack shot gunman, a former covert ops payload specialist, and Miss I can tell everything about you from your clothes over there, as crew. I am afraid to find out what your hostess here can do as well. I can’t see a way to do this by force without breaking my prime directive here.”

(assuming a how were you planning to kidnap here in the black)

“I have a ship and crew ready; they are tracking this ship via a microwave transmitter I hid on board. My plan was to convince the captain and get him to see the profit in the kidnapping plan, offer a share of the money for the rights which has got to be better than whatever this Badger is paying you. So, perhaps we can still help each other. You let me take Lilianna here, along with her bodyguard to guarantee her safety. You can say you were attacked and boarded; we make our demands and cut you in on the deal. Once we have the rights, we will let them go. The Baron has no reason to kill Daniel and he will let him go – the two of them can run away into the sunset.”

“What!” Lilianna says curtly, “I am not a bargaining chip for you to use! How dare you?”

“Oh do be quiet Princess.” Asante rolls her eyes, “The adults are talking.”

“Captain?” Lilianna turns to Jon, “I have a necklace that belonged to my mother. The Baron is giving it me for the wedding. It is worth at least 6000 credits and I will give it to you if you will help me avoid this marriage and save Daniel in the process. Like this jiàn huò biǎo zǐ gǒu niáng* said, you have an amazing crew here. I am sure you can do it. Somehow. Please? Help me Captain Brown, you are my only hope.”

Chī chóng huā dàn**!” Asante shot back.

Bì zuǐ! Fèi wù biǎo zǐ!***” Lilianna retorts.

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: These buttons were made for pushing, and that's what Cidals do


OOC: Looking out from the Throne, I am assuming Dudley on the left and Wembley on the right

When Wembley presses the top yellow button, there is a monstrous roar and the giant skull farthest away on his side suddenly rises up into the air, bursts into flames and then starts to speak in a boomingly loud voice. "BOW DOWN!!!! BOW DOWN IN THE PRESENCE OF LORD PUTNAM THE GREAT OR ELSE DIE A BURNING DEATH!" Then the skull descends back into its spot and extinguishes its flames.

Dudley and Wembley exchange "oh wow" glances and Dudley presses his button. The skull on his side, farthest away lifts off the ground and burns into flames saying in a similar loud voice, "GROVEL INSECT BEFORE THE MIGHTY PUTNUM THE GREAT! OR YOUR DOOM IS ASSURED!

Unable to wait his turn, Dudley presses the next button as the skull lands back in its place. The Skull next to him rises up to burst into a green crackle of energy and booms out, "NOW YOU WILL DIE IN PAIN AND SUFFERING!".

Wembley pushed his button. The skull closest to him rises up, glows with a blue energy and shout out, "PUTNAM IS MERCIFUL, IF YOU SUBMIT TO HIS WILL!"

Dudley presses the red button on his side, unable to contain his excitement. But no skulls rise up or speak. Instead, a pole rises up from the floor on the main floor before the stairs to the throne. It is a silver pole, capped at the top, about 7 feet high, about 2 inches thick and it does nothing special. Very disappointing for a red button.

The die is already cast and Wembley presses the red button on his side, unable to find caution in his body or mind. The room grows dark. Suddenly there are the "pfft" and smoke of teleportation and there are six creatures in the room that resemble monstrous eyeballs with great teeth filled mouths and many eye -stalks. Beholders!!! They growl menacing and start to fly around the throne room making horrible sounds and intent upon corralling the party into the centre of the room. Then there is another "pfft" and a gigantic beholder appears before the throne, three times the size of the others. It looks at Wembley and Dudley in the chair with its huge eye, mouth slobbering with green goo and says, "What is your bidding, my master?"

Right now we are down to half on the party

Sal has left for awhile for RL reasons

Tann is mourning a close friend

Archangel has not been heard of since June 11th

So no one is gonna speak out against Wembley pressing the buttons unless Almerin pops by but he is a busy man too.

So ... Mal would voice caution. Do as you feel is best.

Hi there. Where did everyone go? I have one post so far.

This game is supposed to work on weekly posting. I am lucky to get monthly. We are only a couple of post away from finishing this story arc and beginning another.

I will post the game forward as soon as there is a quorum and I have the time to write 6 pages of dialogue. I realize we are all dealing with real life so I don't get upset when someone doesn't post once and awhile. but please keep in mind that I do a lot of work for these games and I want them to keep moving.

In the update before this one, Angela took out a bodyguard in 18 seconds. I assumed most people would be stunned by this and did not put in any other characters movement.

This game is supposed to work on weekly posting. I am lucky to get monthly. At current rates we will get to the yacht next year. So I will post the game forward as soon as there is a quorum and I have the time to write 5 pages of dialogue. I realize we are all dealing with real life so I don't get upset when someone doesn't post once and awhile. But please keep in mind that I do a lot of work for these games and I want them to keep moving.
