Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: okay

The Trish is a typo. It should be Tess.

Tess and Gator have been taken on board. You have already done the interviews and initial simulations. You are about to head off to a "quiet area" to do a real audition. Basically fly up and around, go to the Black and come back and land.

Celeste - You can post your character's back history, or thoughts on waiting, the number of people in line, the interview, or the simulation. Yes, you have to wait to post your flight as Gator goes first but there is a world of other things you can post about to give the crew an idea of who and what Tess is about.

Subject: Al can wait if the postng is good.

Interaction between players is moving things along too. As much as i want to get you into the black and hauling dynamite for farmers, this mini adventure can play out. We have to wait for Celeste's first post and I know Vanadia wants to post as well.

The important thing in the timeline is I need John to be near the cockpit when Tess is doing her audition. But I have to write in Gator's audition first which should be fun.

Willow used her advancement ppoints to move up in martial arts and decided to write it into the story. You may do the same with any of the advances you have made on your characters.

Subject: Silver Screen Moment - Even Crimelords like BBQ

Somewhere on Beaumonde

Yardiff Bey, or Yari as his friends would call him, looked out on his estate and smiled smugly. Today is my day. He thought to himself as he looked down upon his guests mingling with the women he’d hired to entertain that day and evening. On the far side of his property, pass the in ground pool, servants were tending to the many whole pigs he had roasting over a big fire pit. No one could say he didn’t known how to throw a party.

It hadn’t been always like this for Yari. He’d been born with a disease that made him weak, difficulty breathing and the like, and his father, being a underworld minion low on the food chain, had to work hard pay for the operations and medicine. His dad resented him a lot for that – used to call him worthless, insipid and weak, said that he’d been better off if he choked to death instead of being a burden on the family. But his mom was always sweet and caring for Yari, always there for him and always told him he would be someone some day, so in his mind, Yuri dedicated this day to his mom, may she rest in peace. She’d died when Yari was 18 years old, just after he received his final treatment and a clean bill of health – like she held on long enough to make sure he’d be alright.

Of course once she was gone, Yari used his father’s underworld ties to make a name for himself and then strangled his father to death on the one year anniversary of his mom’s passing. Not so worthless and weak now he had thought as he watched his father die. He then sold his two brothers and sister into indentured servitude for a tidy profit. The thought of them toiling away on Higgin’s Moon without a hope of escape, cheered Yari immensely when he thought about it. Without that startup capital, none of this would have been possible.

But today, he had all the big name crime bosses of Beaumonde here on his estates. They would drink his wine, eat his food, do his whores and remember his name. He was playing in the big times now and this would be his day. He was the major supplier of dreamdrowse on Beaumonde, with robot cultivators tending to his plants in between the corn and sunflowers he grow. It was a sweet setup and the money was very good. Of course some local farmers got wind of what he was doing but Yari knew how to deal with that.

My secret of success? Oh I treat everyone like they were family!

I have a few story-lines happening right now and some of them may seem a bit "out there" at the moment but I promise that they will all link together in the future. Probably the moment before Asher gets shot and blown up again.

No problem Loki. Rocinante is more a marathon than a sprint anyway. I just post nag-o-grams on occasion.

Don't sweat the timeline as this often happens in posting. Everyone has their own internal movie running. Post as you want to happen and I will tell you what actually happens. If you worry about precise timelines in online games, you'll never post outta fear of ruining continuity.

No luck finding the emblem from rocinante. Checking my old archives now. I found a bunch of stuff including pictures
of Tann's hand-drawn Trilogy maps, but no emblem.

Subject: Here we go. Pilot Auditions

Rocinante Crew Portrait

Beaumonde, Eisley Moss Space Port, 1:00 pm

The loss of Sam to the crew of Rocinante weighed hard but there was no time to waste wishing things were otherwise. The ship needed to fly, Dodger had a line on a special cargo paying a fee for excellent care and no questions - so a new pilot was needed and quickly. But not just anyone was gonna fly Captain Sung's boat. No doubt of that.

Word spread fast around the Eisley Moss Station and within a day there were twenty five would be pilots come calling for the job. Some were easy to weed out, with a quick look over by Willow to note some had tell tale signs of addiction and dependency that would not be good for long trips on the black. Others took a few questions and they were eliminated from consideration.


"I drive a Mk-4R Hoverbike - can't be much difference."

"Next! Experience?"

"Umm...Someone said there would be refreshments served?"

"Next! Experience?"

"Big Guy, I can fly you to the moons and back with my tongue."


It was a short process to get the 25 down to 6, and then Wyatt took them inside the cockpit one by one and ran them through some dry run drills with the controls on simulation mode. That brought the list down to two. One was a man named "Gator". his resume and references were impressive, with many glowing recommendations from a former captain. Gator was tall, thin and lanky. He had brown hair, a scruffy beard and knew his way around a cockpit for sure. He had an unfortunate habit of calling people dude though and Wyatt wasn't too sure about being called "Captain Dude" but he could make some ground rules. Gator had flights time but all after the way, bein ga young man when the war ended.

The other was a lady named "Tess" and she was the pilot of Destiny which many of you had heard the rumours. It was lost in the black when a bounty hunter looking for a companion, EMPed the ship, boarded it, killed some of the crew and the engineer blew up the ship to kill him while the remaining crew got away (Tess, the Captain Jon, and a Doctor Stephanie). She had combat experience, fought on the browncoat side and Wyatt knows Captain Jon enough to trust his judgement. Tess was a smooth hand with the controls on "sim" - almost uncanny actually, but she had a thing for superstitious charms and trinkets. Wyatt has his own superstitions to deal with, let alone another's.

With two good candidates, Wyatt wanted to see them fly for real, because "sim" was not enough. He wanted to go someplace quiet, no traffic, where they could fly in atmo, leave, do some black time and come back. He has heard of a place called Baker's Gully nearby from the locals.

Meanwhile, Fenris has the port side panel off the power couplings and is looking at the wiring and swearing like a fishmonger's wife. Ever since he put the new Grav Dampener into place, he had been having nothing but troubles with the electrical system of the Roc. Power shunting off, overloads, NAV computer going down - you name it. The two shouldn't be related but the evidence was there. Wolf reached back to his tool tray for a Interlocutor and swore some more.

The plan was for John to try out as pilot and something will happen that will allow him to impress the crew during a flight. I am thinking having him as more tech guy than jack of all trades.

Excellent posts from all. I think the reactions and scenes drawn out in the posts were great interactions and all true to the characters. So well done everybody.

Will post pilot audition beginning tomorrow so Celeste and Loki can join. I was gonna do it as a narrative but I have decided to do it as a mini adventure instead. Better to have everyone get to know each other.

If Ma knows sign it wouldn't help much as no one else does. There is a lot of mystery in her past and the captain wisely chooses not to explore that.
