Topic: What sort of game should I run?
Subject: oh oh oh

A star trek based game where two groups of players book the same holodeck at the same time. There is a malfunction and the games merge and they have to complete both quests to unlock the doors (and of course the safety measures are gone). The holodeck programs - A Dungeon Deep (a D&D RPG) and Zombies from Chicago (A Zombie attack 20th century RPG).

Go for it!

Subject: Let me

I will post the game forward either today or tomorrow. It is really non-essential for everyone to post.

I have heard from Gallirian (he was away on vacation). I believe that Dark Lady is gone so I will NPC her character until I can find a volunteer to take over.

Thinking that you are about to be attacked by reavers right now would be a normal reaction.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Questions in the Q&A? What a concept?

First off, you don't have to put OOC in the Q&A. .

I sent out a bunch of PM before I disappeared and I think they were lost as more than one person is in the dark literally and figuratively. So what i thought was known to all was not.

The electrical is completed down on the ship and that means EMP. However, when Grace was rewiring the systems for Destiny back when you first found her, she took the time to shield the backup system from such an attack. She spend days on end in the access tubes wrapping the wiring with the protective shielding. So the back up will come on as soon as the system can reboot (5 minutes). That will give you life support, inner ship communications and emergency lights.

Grace also hid one battery completely shielded to connect to if you need to get one thing working (airlock, engine, transmitter, etc) for a short time.

So you will be in the dark for five minutes and the backup will come online. Emergency lights will activate. That is what the assilant has noticed and you would realize that if you are under attack (assumed) then anyone wit ha scanner will know you are not dead.

Tess/Celeste - Your console and flight controls are completely dead. First check of back up will come up as dead as well. But Tess knows in her heart of hearts that there is no way Grace wouldn't have built a contingency plan for something like this. So you would have that faith to draw upon for the five long minutes until the back up will sudden kick back to life (You either have the best mechanic alive or the twitchiest)

Jon/Ody - There was an EMP in that explosion. You know it. Why else would all the electrical including the back up die. But Jon knows in his gut that there is no way Grace wouldn't have built a contingency plan for something like this. So you would have that faith to draw upon for the five long minutes until the back up will sudden kick back to life. Jon would also know that Ken would head for the main airlock and defend.

Ken/RPN - You played him as exactly as I would suggested. Being newest to the ship you might not have the faith in Grace that others would have, and work on a "man alone" basis. In fact, the power being restored so quickly might surprise him.

Jason/Phelan -You were just making a connection to a friend of yours who might know something of the Tong interests when you find yourself on the ground. Jason would know the following. Grace will get the system working. She always has in the past and no matter what the crisis, Grace comes through. Ken will be arming himself and heading for the airlock. Stephanie will be running through the ship soon to check on everyone and see if they are wounded. She will not heed her own safety.

Hope this helps.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: lights

I think there is a on-running joke here about there being safety lights probably hidden in every room of the ship but Grace hiding them so well that only she knows where they are.

I would agree to your suggestion of places for the snaplights C.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: short one

Agnat swung his ship around towards his target. He couldn't destroy the ship, and he couldn't even damage it too much either. He needed to find the item and he didn't know where the crew would stash it so he knew what to do. The EMP he hid in the explosion would knock out any security. Then he would just attach to the cargo bay, override the airlock and flush the atmo out of the ship. really easy.

He scanned the ship as he approached. The scanners showed the engines as offline, and electrical dead. He moved in closer when suddenly his scanners blipped and the sensor sweep started to light up.

"What in the gorram hell?" Agnat said aloud and he wasn't one for talking to himself. That ship either had the best damn engineer in the verse or the twitchiest. There was no way unless they took the time to wrap every essential system with ... one would do that would they?

Agnat drew back his dhip and moved to plan B. If they got power then they would be waiting for him. that was fine, he liked a good fight. But damned if he was going to walk in the front door.

Moved the game along.

As to equipment, I am not sure what you need. I am not going to adjust it every time you fire your weapon. I assume that you can keep track of your own equipment and use.

Topic: Escape From Castle Rautenberg
Subject: foul voice on the wind.

Max asked, “Ah, where exactly are we going and what is going on here? You guys kill everyone topside? I saw a lot of soldiers here and frankly I don’t see this small group getting this far into this place.”

Max was very glad to find friendly faces in this dark place, and the team had another member. You took some time to brief Max on the weirdness that had been the mission and of the monsters that go bump in the castle.

Brutal took one of the machine guns off the dead german soldier and handed it to Max along with two magazines. "Not as good as a Thompson, but beggars and choosers right?" He says with a grin " We ain't seen you bag of party favours but if we do, I'll let you know."

Greta stands back on guard as the team regroups and Max is bandaged up. Considering how much he had been hit, The Doc finds he is in good condition. "We should not linger." She says nervously.

(Assuming you are moving down hallway and into the room)

the doors are open and ajar to the next room. Brutal takes his usual point position and peers in, pushing the door aside slight with the end of his machinegun. Once he has a quick look-see, he shoulders his way through the door and moves in. The is no gunfire and he quickly calls out a "clear".

Inside the room, arched frames of stone form a low wet ceiling over this room that was once a wine cellar. Places where great casks used to line the wall are visible and the walls are brighter in colour where the casks once stood, leaving ghostly reminders of what it once was. Now the room is being used as a barrack and dining area with 6 cots set up around the room, each with a chest at the end for storing clothing and personal effects. A long table occupies the northern section of the room and food is set out (bread, butter, jams, warm coffee in a dented silver urn, milk, sugar). In the southern part of the room is a archway and past them is a huge circular stairwell that leads both upwards and downwards through the castle. For below you can hear the sound of generators humming and voices talking in german. There is a strong draft coming up from the deep dark, and a foul smell to the air, like that of death and decay. Even over the din of voice below, there seems to be another voice whispering in another language, oh so faintly.
