Way I see it, we bring back Captain Jon, Stephanie (NPC), and I will see if my daughter wants to revive Grace. Vanadia had a character in a previous attempt who was a Gov't experiment that she really wanted to flesh out more. So we'd need a pilot and a gunfighter which I am sure we could find.

Subject: couple of things


Is anyone going to let John in on what has all happened? Might be a good idea to include him in the loop.

I hate to say "no" but the timeline you have and the timeline you need to get Rocinante to fly is the difference of hours to days. You have 4 hours, you need 4 days. Any attempt will be rolled on the Impossible difficulty.

You do have some advantages. John has a radio set at their frequency. They can't come in with guns blazing out of fear of damaging the violin. Asher does have an arsenal.

But you will be outmanned, outgunned and hunted by ruthless Mercs in 3-4 hours.

Subject: hurm


The new rule system is a bit of the old but a huge leap towards more of the "Fiasco" role playing system. Plot points are now a key feature and assets and complications change frequently and then disappear. It is more geared towards roleplaying to create a storyline than the current system. Not sure I like it, but I need to read the rules over again.

This is only a preview rule system so the core rulebooks might explain things better. But what I see could not be used for online gaming.

However, I can always convert the modules.

Subject: Too big


Ship length 378'-8". Ship width 204'-2". Ship height 92'-6".

Atmosphere Processor is wide enough (300 yards at the base) but the first floor is at 60' up, second at 70, third at 80' etc. So it is just too big in height.

Subject: shuttles


Interesting

The Rocinante weighs about 2460 tons without shuttles.

Shuttle's cargo cap is 12 tons. Even pushing the parameters to double that, would not be enough. Even if you used the one drive pod, the flow would be too uneven.

However if you were to fix the core, and use the reactor to create the grav-dampner bubble around the Firefly, it might work. It could get it moved but there would be a high risk of structural damage to the shuttles and the Rocinante depending on where you lifted from and how.

Mathewson is the man in the White tux and electric cane as Tann so quaintly put it. He has two bodyguards called Hack and Slash. You can presume those are aliases.

Havelock fought the war and was the last officer standing in serenity valley.

Other than that, no. You are dealing with upper class socialites with no skills beyond running fund raisers and gossiping about who is sleeping with whom. You could arm them am give the the fundamentals ( this is a knife. Pointy end goes in bad guy) but I wouldn't expect thrilling heroics.

Subject: wrong crowd


There is no one among the crowd that would be of use to you as a work crew. These are all high society people who have never done a hard days work in their life. Even the physicists are theoretical, never done anything with actual engines and if you let them at your engine they might try to "improve" it.

Captain Havelock could help you in a fight, and has seen battle and was at Serenity Valley. Just need to get him ship shape again. Other than that, Lord Hood has been the most helpful of the passengers but admits he has little skills besides talking and wearing a sash.

So this is the sitc. You have 72 helpless passengers, one Fiddle that is mucho valuable, a broken ship, two shuttles, a hovermule, a series of caves in the nearby hills and a Atmo Processor building that was never build for defense. You have another case that looks the exact same with an unknown content right now. You have two passengers effected by some sort of mind control sex device that you have no idea where it came from.on top of all that, coming after you is a group of mercenaries that make reavers look tame.

Your advantages? Willows Looks, Asher's shot, John's brains Wyatt's cool and Wolf's strength.

Subject: VTOL without the VT


Well ....

You have only one thruster to create the lift needed for a Vertical Takeover. Tess would be piloting under near Impossible Complex conditions with a botch leading to flipping the ship. However she has Plot points she has not used.

However you still have to wait for the core to cool before you can replace the shielding and it has only been two hours since you landed - you will need at least another two hours before it is cool enough to attempt.

These are the repairs needed:
The Primary Buffer Panel, still intact, cabling and connectors severed. Re-cable. (1-2 hours)
Containment Jacket, punctured, replace. (wait 4 hours, replace 1/2 hour)
Port side Drive Pod beat up but intact. Interior turbine total loss replacement needed.
Replacement turbine space flight doors needed.
Minor damage to the hull, negligible no need to repair at present time. (High end estimate repair time 3-4 days)

You have only one drive pod and you need two to lift off. Not to say I wouldn't listen to a creative way to get it into the air. However if you do get airborne and into the black, your next landing will be very difficult.

Subject: Check the time for repairs


I am on my phone but I am pretty sure the repairs you need to do will take a lot longer than 3-4 hours. You are stuck on the planet unless you can find a miracle,

You have caves you could hide in, or the processor building or Rocinante. But really, you are in your own little Serenity Valley right now. Outgunned, nowhere to run. Your advantage is that they can not bombard you because they want the violin.

I did a small post for John's progress and just filled in the blanks on the situation on the ground. I am assuming that Willow will run to Havelock's aid. You may post again to continue the story if you have already.

As always, feel free to ask questions if anything is not clear.


BTW - I was looking for input on the bulletproof vests and their longevity after use. Especially from any of you who use different systems.

Subject: John's progress and just a small bit of info


LV-426, Atmo Processor, Upper floor, 8:25 am PT

John moved through the control room and to the ladder to the next level up. Although not an expert on terraforming, John was pretty sure of what was awaiting him and he wasn’t disappointed. The upper most level was dominated by a huge tank in the centre of the room. This tank would have been used to break down frozen elements of atmosphere (Nitrogen, oxygen, CO2) for rapid dispersal. After that, the tank would have been filled with water and a genetically enhanced algae that would super produce oxygen. Above, in the ceiling were vents leading up to at least half the building height of blowers, turbines and fans to force the gases into an atmosphere. Amazing to thin kabout as it took decades to complete.

The transparent aluminum of the tank was stained with algae and John shook his head in disgust that the Terrraformers did not tae the time to clean the tank properly. Of course, that meant someone could harvest the remaining algae if they had the time, but right now, John did not.

He moved back down to the main floor and started to fire up the battery for the control system. He would need to find a schematic of the building to find the best fit turbine – otherwise he’d be crawling through tubes and shafts for hours.

LV-426, Emergency Landing Field, Outside rear of Rocinante, 8:30 am PT

Wyatt pointed the shotgun up and at a slight angle before pulling the trigger resulting in a powerful boom.

"Go Hwong Tong (Enough of this nonsense)!" Firing another shell into the air, the captain looked about and declared in his most authoritative voice, "Calm down and gather about. Now."

The blast did not stop everyone from panicking but it did stop many. The boys from the physics lab, the Queen Bee and her girls, and a smattering of other lords and ladies seem to draw strength from Captain’s Wyatt calm demeanor and unwillingness to give into madness. Lord Hood was off his feet and beside his friend Havelock, asking Willow if there was anything he could do. But at the call of Wyatt’s voice he stood up to stand beside the Captain.

“My friends, we must listen to Captain Wyatt. He has gotten us through so far, we must be ready to do as he says to survive.” Lord Hood exclaims.

As the crowd quieted Ash started, “That fits…. These Mercenary guys are the Heilong Commandos. They was in my Big Guns and Bigguns mag….. It said they started out square enough when the Browncoats took them into service, but they went bad quick. They was hunted down by the Purplebellies right quick and no one was the sorrier fer it. That was until that Black Bart Chung raised them from the dead 'bout three years back though. He took up right were the first group left off, but didn't even pretend to be square. They was killers then, and they is killers now. Theys 'bout as wanted as any group o' folk can be, but you know the Feds, can't find their own pi gu with both hands and a mirror. So how do ya'll 'spect them to find a set of killer what don't want to be found? It said if’n ya ever hear the Heilong is comin' ya way, you’s best find a way to git yerself gone or they'll spill your blood just fer breathin'. It even said that they gives the Reavers a bad name……………If’n we only gots three hours … we best get a wiggle on. "

Matherson clears his throat, “Well these men seem to be looking for a fiddle of some value to be going through all this trouble and I can guarantee you it is not in that case.” He points to the musicain holding the silver case. “Captain, My men and myself will offer whatever aid you wish, but I demand my case be returned to me, and you better talk to this pretty lady about where the other case is.” He says moving his finger to Beatrix Kiddo (Jessie).

Justin attempts to open the case and becomes highly agitated when he cannot, “This is not the case. I need my case back! It holds a Stradivarius! It is a violin from a supreme craftsman from Earth-that-was. There are only two in existence. It is so valuable that people would have killed for it back on Earth, making it worth, “ Justin looks around at everyone staring at him and the bodies at your feet, “More than all our lives together. By Buddha, they are after the Stradivarius and I don't know where it is now!"

All eyes turn to the young lady in the slinky dress...
