“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."

“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?

I have been chatting with Jing and it looks like we will have Floyd coming back soon. The style of the art will change a bit as Jing works more with pencil and paper instead of the computer, but I like what I have seen so far.

Topic: Rocinante needs a pilot
Subject: Decisions

After looking over the concepts I have decided to offer Tess (Celeste) the position of Pilot for Rocinante. I owe Celeste for ending a good game on her in Destiny and the character is truly the best fit for the game.

Loki - I like John Ryan and think he would be a good generalist so I will open up a sixth spot for you if you are interested.

RSA - Thanks for the character, I liked the idea but he was a bit too gritty and dark for what I wanted to do here. Sorry but I will pass. If I ever have time and want to do a more grim Serenity Game, your character would well.

Topic: Rocinante needs a pilot
Subject: wow

Three candidates already.... didn`t expect that turn out.

Celeste - Tess would be a good fit too but I want to give Red and Loki a chance to submit a character if they want to and I can pick which is the best fit. So guys give me a pilot character concept as soon as you can so I can pick. You don;t need to know the backstory ofthe current campaign as you will be coming in afterwards.

Rocinante is a firefly class transport.

Captain Wyatt is known for being a strong willed individual who can get a job done. Doesn`t lean to the crime but won`t shy away either.

Asher is the PR man, gunslinger and he has quite the collection. A happy go lucky type of kid, likes the ladies and can`t hold his liquor.

Wolf is the mechanic. He is a big bruiser of a man who likes brawling and machine guns.

Willow is a ex-companion turned Doctor. She keeps everyone on board intact and also serves as the contact person for jobs.

The new pilot will be entering the game after the current canpaign ends which is soon. I want a pilot who can handle a gun and is an interesting character for the game. I do not want a clone of Sam Dash who is leaving the game. You can see all the characters as they are posted in the Characters thread within the forum.

Olan - The campaign they are playing will end, but the adventures continue.

Subject: Rocinante needs a pilot


I am looking for a player to join the crew of the Rocinante, a Firefly mid-bulk transport operating under Captain Wyatt. The games has been running for some time and I need someone to take over as pilot.

You must have some knowledge of the Verse and the Serenity setting. I need a player who can get into a character because it is role-play heavy. As to game mechanics, it is the cortex system but I can guide through most of that.

So if you are interested, let me know here or through PM. Give me a character concept that makes me want to see you in action. The current campaign will be ending soon so ASAP.

Hornsilver Mine - Secret Room, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:25 am Planet Time

“Tze Sh'unTze Mieh,” he muttered under his breath. The hackles on the back of his neck immediately rose up and danced a little jig. “Miss Willow. There might be more t’ this than still meets the eye. People don’t mark crates with this much hoodoo jus’ t’ scare off the locals.”

“Normally,” Sam added in a dry tone. “I’d be all about disagreein’ with Wyatt and saying somethin’ like, ‘Break this Hwen Dan thing open and let’s each take a turn rollin’ around nakkid on the bricks.’ But seein’ how this thing’s been buried fer so gorram long, and we’re neck deep in back-stabbin’ Go shi...I’m thinkin’ we need to proceed with caution. I saw a data card reader plugged into the walk over there. might have some juice left.”

"Sam!" Willow called crisply, "Walk away, my pet and don't rile Miss Brigit up any more. Buddha only knows whatever else she may have hidden away under those skirts. And you, my pretend schoolmarm, " Willow turned her imperious gaze on the redhead," even a fake teacher should be smarter than breaking the seal on something before you check it out. Amateurs! I work with amateurs!

"Don't want to be breaking anything without at least a clue of what's in there. Maybe a trace was left on this side of the glass when it was sealed." She leaned in with both hands held before her as if to sweep further inside the sarcophagus, allowing her to sweep up the datadisk in the hand with the analyzer box.

She watched the of the analyser as she swung it back and forth across the glass cover. Nothing was detected for the first few sweeps but just as Willow was about to declare it safe there was a blip. Then there was another. The scanner was picking up a viral pathogen , trace amounts on the side of the case where it held down the corners. The spinning circle showing the analyzer working seemed to spin and spin forever before it put out in red lettering "Warning: Surface Contamination. Virus Unknown. 76% genetic similarity to Influenza 4167 - Bio-weapon" in both english and mandarin.

(assuming you tell everyone in the room that the money is contaminated)

Brigit goes red in the face, "What! No! Ten years chasing down this score and you tell me it's contaminated? No! No gorram way! it's a trick. You want it all for yourselves don't you!? That bastard Benny put you up to this? I'll be dammed if I let some greenhorn like you steal it from me now. It's mine! I earned it and I'm the only one who'll be walking out with it!" She looks around the room and then steps back.

Suddenly there is a huge bang form the corridor to this room as if something just fell on the hatchway. then you hear the muffle sound of gunfire - like a shotgun.

Brigit take the distraction runs 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.

Hornsilver Mine - Old Shaft, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:25 am Planet Time

Ash dropped the optical bomb on the hatch and it lights up like a yuletide tree on fire. Both Wolf and Ash then drop to the ground, rolling to the left and right as they do.

The Mustard boy is out from his cover and around the corner of the second drift so the bomb didn't hurt him. Yet he has to come running to see what is happening as he was heading down the second drift. He fires two shots at Wolf as best he can with the rifle but his shots are two high of the mark. Wolf risks a shotgun blast and the wide spread wings the deputy on the right shoulder. Ash moves quickly with knife drawn, but a wild swing of the rifle end clips him in knee as Mustard scrambles back in pain. Ash rolls and thrusts with his knife, cutting deep into the gut. With a howl, Mustard kicks Ash in his injury knee and raises the rifle like a club with intention of beating Asher to death with the firearm.

Wolf spares no time as he rushes forward to save his friend and with a close range shot to the head, drops the last deputy. The rifle falls from his dead grip and his body shuffles off its mortal coil.

The shotgun blast echoes throughout the shaft and dirt falls from the ceiling, timbers creek and a few rocks shift from the noise. Pearson wasn't lying, this place is unstable. Luckily it settles down quickly but firing off the shotgun in here could be very dangerous.

Ash: Stun damage 6
