Subject: Battle time

LV-426The Battle, 12:50 pm PT
"We got t' use their cover 'gainst them, Havelock." Wyatt pointed to the dust cloud that the ASREV had kicked up and the corvette's pass over it. "Them mercs are highly trained, so it won't surprise me if they're doing a fast-rope insertion."

"Right!" Havelock said and pushed the mule towards the group of men on the ground. "Been on the receiving end of more than a few of those in my time."

The radio next to Wyatt crackled with life as the ASREV and Shuttle crashed landed.

"HONEY!!! HONEY CREAM! Respond Honey!" There was emotion to that voice. Raw emotion, anger, pain and loss. "Wilson! Respond!"

Before the mule there was a team of ten soldiers and a huge man in a black trench coat. They were carrying sonic rifles which they brought to bear on the incoming mule.

"Dwight! Drop your team now! I want a squad over there to extract survivors." the radio called out.

Suddenly, as if waiting for that exact moment, there was a small explosion from the ASREV, Then a small pop and a huge fireball reaching high into the sky. The fire burned green for a moment or two before the flames engulfed themselves and it turned the normal orange and red. The heat passes over the field like a wave, not enough to make anything burn but like a summer's wind.

LV-426, In the Caves, 12:50 pm PT
"Mrs. Amber-sama. So pleased to hear from such a great distance that you remembered you have a daughter. She is fine, no thanks to your maternal concern. You must have run everyone's income statement here in the cave and have decided to move on? Hopefully we can accommodate you soon enough."

Willow turned abruptly back to face Sifu, her dismissal of Portia evident in every line of her body. "Sifu, you were supposed to take it easy...please tell me what needs doing and I'll make sure it gets done. I want you sitting down and resting."

"I must admit that I am finding it very wearying to continue. Lord Hood and I have tried to get everyone doing something to keep them busy. We have power now, and there is water and food." The monk says and grasps Willow hands firmly. He smiles but his eyes look at her seriously. " I need to show you around."

Willow is surprised to find that the monk has passed a piece of paper in her hand. As he moved across the cave area to a corridor, Willow has the time and privacy to look at the note.

"The Violin is in the case and hidden behind the lower panel of the communication centre. I felt it was best out of sight. Only you and I know of this so best destroy this paper."

As they approached a section of the cave that was dedicated to the communications array, the ground shook. People cried out in terror as dust and dirt fell from the ceiling and a muffles boom could be heard.

Sheldon remarked out loud to his friend, “Oh good. It worked.”

Leonard looked at his friend, “What worked Sheldon?”

“Did you know you can make explosives from household items like coffee and cooking oil. And High Fructose corn Syrup is almost a hydrocarbon?”

Howard looked scared, “oh no Sheldon. What did you do?”

“They wanted a missile. I made a missile!”

There was more faint sound and more explosions after that. Willow tried not to worry about what was happening out there.

The Battle, Asher and Ma in Shuttle 2 LV-426, 12:45 pm PT
Asher looked at Trish, “We gotta!” Ma nodded to the body on the window. Ash just said, “He’s coming with us.” Trish wasted no time on the launch sequence, she hit the releases and leapt the little shuttle into the air. The kid synched and secured his straps, anchored to the tether rod across the shuttle so he could swing from door to door.. As they lifted Trish rolled a bit to expose the shuttles starboard side ( starboard refers to the right side of the ship, port refers to the left side. right?). The kid popped open the doors and as they swung out he opened fire with the Uzi on the men now trudging across Rocinate’s hull. Firing from a moving ship on a tether towards moving men was not as easy as it looked and his first set of rounds are way off the mark. He may have caught a few but their jackets took the brunt of the attack.

Ma may not have been as good a pilot as Tess but with the lives of her crew on the line she flew like a women possessed. Arms signaling to Ash she was going down as she righted her little bumble bee and Trish buzzed over the Mercs that had hit the ground. Asher somehow understood and started pulling grenades from his vest, pulling pins and dropping them out the open bay door. The kid was able to dropped four flashbangs. Being closer and getting used to the movement of the shuttle, the kid managed to get two of the FBs close enough to bring the some soldiers down, covering their heads just in time to see the mule heading toward the group troops.

Shouting up Trish, “Ma can you swing in from behind the group on the boat? Them boots might make it hard for um ta turn and shoot us. Bank up and around and that should let me open fire on um. …. I’ll try to get that fella in the trench coat……We gotta hit run and keep us as small a target as possible.” The kid readied the Uzi as Ma brought’er in hot.

Havelock drove like a man on a mission but talked like he was on a Sunday drive "Fought alongside this one chap named Jacobs. He could drive anything that was on wheels or the ground. Good fella. Died in my arms in Serenity valley, "Havelock said as he whipped the wheel around and opened fire on a merc while slamming the side of the mule into him. The mercenary took three to the chest before the mule's "kick" which sent him flying and bouncing across the gravel. "Like to say that was for Jacob but it was really just for me."

The Mercenaries fired their rifles at the mule but the sonic blasts were made to disrupt people and not machines so the cover of the mule made their rifles useless. They would soon be moving to sidearms.

Wyatt saw the flashbangs from the shuttle had taken down three of the enemy but they were still moving and would recover quickly. It was the leader that interested Wyatt and he aimed and fired at him. The colt opened fire and he put three bullets into the chest of the big man. He jolted with each hit but did not fall.

"Ahh! Allow me." said Havelock and he spun the wheel again "Take out the leader first and all that. Right!" He swung the mule at the big man who did not open fire but sheathed his weapons and ran towards the mule.

He leapt into the air, ove the side of the mule and into the seats where Wyatt and Havelock were sitting. He threw himself on Wyatt with his full mass and body focused on his hand holding the colt. The colt came loose from Wyatt's grip and landed in the bottom of the mule. Up close, this merc was a mass of scar tissue and muscle - this fight just got personal.

Ma brought the shuttle up and toward Rocinante. Asher swing across on his tether to the other side and brought out his Uzi. In the distance, he saw another team dropping from the corvette just beyond the ship. Asher slammed a new magazine into the uzis and opened fire. One, two Three Mercs went down in a hail of bullets though how much was fatal or not was unknown.

Suddenly, the was a small explosion from the ASREV. Asher strained himself about to see the Shuttle and ASREV consumed by a green Fire that changed to red. Asher knew what that meant too. Nerve gas. The Mercenaries were gonna use nerve gas on them.

Just as unexpected, there was a cannon shot from below. The leader was opening up with his big gun and Ma was taking defensive maneuver. Three times the gun fired and after the second shot, the fuel alarm warning sounded. The third shot torn through the hull like paper and Asher heard a distinct rip as his tether strap was torn near the bar.

If that wasn't enough, the shuttle alarm warning of a weapon system lock sounded as well.

LV-426 inside Rocinante, 12:50 pm PT
Having heard the echo of such himself Johns warning was already useless as Wolf had begun to move before hand at the first sound of the boots.

“Wolf… Wolf…Tess got the Cargo Lifter but she went down too… She knocked into ASREV as she fell. They both crash landed…..You got a couple hand full of Mercs on the hull and couple hand full more on the ground outside… we’ll do what we can” Though he already assumed that he was still great full for the warning.

“Hack, Slash hold the cargo area I’ll try to hold the rest of the ship” Moving fast, as fast as the mechanic could, Wolf moved quickly back to his first still in act flash bang and connected it. Taking a position out of sight he waited for the company from the roof.

There was explosions outside the ship and the sound of machine gun firing. So far, no one had breached the ship. Hack and Slash had their guns ready and were calming watching the doorway. Wolf watched the shuttle doors for signs of an entry attempt.

Something loud and deadly sounding fired three times on the rooftop.

Hack asked, "What was that ? One of them's carrying a cannon?"

Slash laughed, "Always one in every crowd. big gun, no skill, no finesse."

The Battle, Nancy and Tess in Shuttle 1 and Asrev LV-426, 12:45 pm PT
Tess struggled to remain conscious. She couldn't very well because there was something in her eyes. Something wet and sticky and coming from the pain in her head. She had to get out of the shuttle.

Suddenly, Grace was there. The girl engineer from Destiny was hauling Tess out of the chair, "C'mon lady! I don't have time for this!"

"You here to rescue me again Grace?" Tess asked.

"Grace? Oh great. Listen lady. You gorram rutted up my plan but with a bit of luck we can still live and mess us Bart badly. So come with me if you want to live." Grace shouted. She really didn't sound like her usual self.

"Where's Destiny?"

Grace held her with two hands on her face. "Head injury. Hallucinations. Gorran Go sa on a cracker. yes! Destiny. It is here! You gotta come with me."

They ran through wreckage and through the doorway to another ship. It didn't look like Destiny to Tess. "Did you remodel Grace?"

"Yeah. Whatever." Tess was lead to a escape pod and was pushed inside roughly. "My name is Nancy Callahan. Special Agent Callahan of the federal Marshalls. Now if I can figure this out I'm can blow the ship, destroy the nerve gas and we can escape without anyone seeing us."

Tess laughed, "Oh yeah! Becha ya gonna rewire the propulsion of this pod and time it to launch the same time as you blow up the gas."

"No I am ... Wait a minute, That a gorram good idea."

"Yeah, you always think of them Grace. Oh! And change that side thrust units angle so we arc away from the crash, right Grace?"

Nancy looked at her passenger with new respect, "I don't know who Grace is but right now I love her ideas."

After a few moments and Grace/Nancy running around, she came back, closed and locked the escape pod door. She held a detonator in one hand and the other hand over the launch button. "Here we go."

She pushed both buttons.

Subject: getting feisty

“Well, Captain, I hate to break it to you, but last time, we got paid to deliver some wine and not to ask questions. And you remember how that ended. Personally speaking, I don’t really care about that girl, but ignorance isn’t bliss. I think we should try and learn as much as we can so we can be prepared for when trouble hits. I’d rather know what to expect then wait for them tell us when they think it’s convenient for them. As the saying goes: knowledge is power.” Grace said

Jon whirled on Grace,” Don’t you EVER think I’ve forgot what happened.. …I lost two good ship. ….above all I’d thought I’d lost you…… We weren’t ignorant…’d check that cask …We all knew that we were taking a risk……The only thing we could have done was take it back. Is that what you want?..We take the Princess back to Badger?…That will keep you all safe…and we can safely deliver cow dung from then on…..Don’t you think I’ve haven’t already thought of doing just that? “I also know you ain’t here to be safe, but there ain’t no job or cargo worth more to me than you’all….So if you want to turn around I’ll do it….I ain’t saying we stop listening and watching but we ain’t ever go’na know everything. So we just keep doing the job we were hired to do and cover each other’s backs.”

Grace did not flinch from the heat of the Captain’s retort. She never did. She stared back at the captain with a face plain as protein paste and said, “I was talking about gathering Intel, I wasn’t talking about going back like a Tou xiang Huai dan.”

Tess stepped in quickly, “Whoa. Okay. That’s enough both of you. The wound is pretty fresh but we gonna pick at it over and over it ain’t never gonna to heal. Captain’s right though, we took this job and we need to see our way to the end. I’d like nothing more than to ruffle Mr. Steele’s feathers but we need to keep flying and keep eating. I’m rather fond of doing both. Yet, Grace has the right idea too. Forewarned is forearmed as they used to say and i think we need as much forearming as we can muster.”

(assuming some responses)

“So Miss Princess has glommed onto Catie here so why don’t we use that? We are in the Black together for five days so I bet Catie can get the Princess alone for a spell. JC? Maybe you can chat up this her Seth and see what he likes, maybe keep him distracted for a bit. He looks like the type that works out.” She then smiled a mischievous grin, “Then Jon here can pump the Wedding planner for information.”

(assuming some protest from Jon and Stephanie shaking her head firmly)

“I’m kidding. Jon can make some inquiries and try playing sly with her to see if she wants more than his body. C’mon. It is late or early as you may want to call it and we all need sleep. See what tomorrow brings us with some luck.”

(some closing comments from crew if any)

The meeting was over and everyone filed out of the room to their quarters or their station. Stephanie stayed behind with Jon, closing the door behind them.

“Well Jon.” She said, “What shall we do now?” she said as she lowered the lighting in the room. “I believe I owe you an apology or two?”

Destiny Day Two of Journey. 9:00 am ST

The brothers were the first to stir in the morning although the other three were not far behind. The passengers were not well rested, as is often the case with the first night on a ship. The brothers still looked rather grim and Rick was wondering about eating arrangements and the galley.

“We serve ourselves or do you do sit down meals here?” Rick asked as he started to go through the cupboards. AJ sat down and waved at his brother to stop what he was doing. Rick shrugged and sat down beside his brother.

Lilianna and Seth came down in a bit of a state – in fact, they were arguing.

“I will not stay in that room for five days Seth! No! Forget it!”

“Miss Fairchild, it is a secure room and your safety is ....”

“I don’t care. I will not stay there. I can’t take a walk off this ship last I heard so I WILL walk around. I WILL talk to other people and I will not be your prisoner!”

Seth face turns red and her words act like a slap to his face. “I am sorry Lil... Miss Fairchild. I was not attempting to make you my prisoner. I apologize if my zeal for your protection made you feel that way.”

Lilianna sighed heavily, “I know you are Seth but please, no one knows I am here except the people on this ship and my step-father. I think I am safe. And stop with the Miss Fairchild stuff. You called me Lilianna before.”

The two of them sat down at the table beside the Simon brothers. Lilianna said hello to the boys pleasantly. Soon after that the Asante came to the galley as well, dressed in another power business suit that hid the soldering hotness that Jon knew lay underneath. She smiled and said hello to everyone and asked if there was coffee.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: one more thing

With the combat coming I wanted to put out there some rules that I will be applying

Sonic Rifles: They do d8 stun damage and the Basic damage from them is all Stun. Now if you have a Ballistic Vest or armour, according to the rules they are half effective. I am not sure what they meant by that but since the rifle is ineffective against inanimate objects, I will be ruling that wear a vest will give you half damage from a sonic rifle. (For the record, I am assuming that Tess, Wyatt, Wolf, Ash and John are wearing vests even if you did not say so. Ma has her armour. Havelock has the vest and duster.

If you hit 0 Stun points, you get and endurance roll to stay conscious.

If you take more stun than you have points, you are stunned of course but you do get a Resistance roll every round to “shake off the effects”

You may use a plot point at any time to “revive” or “resist” stun effect. Everyone has 6 plot points going into the battle.

Ballistic Vests: Used much like the bulletproof vests of Earth-That-Was, ballistic mesh is a finely woven cloth of metal and plastic over polymer sheeting. Ballistic mesh is meant to stop bullets and that’s about it. The mesh absorbs 1 Wound point from any attack on an area covered by the suit (torso, arms and legs, usually – I roll a d6 and if I get a 1, you got hit in the flesh), but it doesn’t do much more than that to protect against knives, bombs and so on. Against normal bullets, however, the mesh converts all Wound damage to Stun damage. This effect doesn’t apply to arrows, bolts, specialty bullets or explosives. The Mercs are wearing a form of this vest as a jacket with helmets. They are not wearing re-breather helms (probably due to the restrictions they cause on movement and agility).

This weekend got away from me. I hope to get a post in for all the Games today.

Combat in Serenity is based on a six second round and I can not see myself playing this as a post for every six seconds. So ... I'm going to have to assume a bit.

Tann - Can you give me an idea of where you'd like Wolf to be beyond "hopefully out of sight". You got people on the roof so they can access through the shuttle bay doors the easiest, or use the upper EVA entrance by the kitchen. So .. Catwalk egress to the shuttles, maybe a few stairs down so if they blow the doors you won't be in the way? See picture below

Subject: I am pretty sure that I said Victoria

It is a Victoria Class, modified. The Victoria-class corvette was designed to allow surreptitious insertion of Special Forces and their equipment. Due to its ability to move undetected, and its relatively high amount of firepower, a Victoria-class corvette is often put under the command of Parliament Operatives who need a fast ship with sufficient firepower to resolve any likely armed conflict.

Before you go looking up on the best way to attack something, does Asher have Knowledge (Ships)?

Fed Marshall ASREV Defiant On course to LV-426, 12:45 pm PT

The ASREV moved through the black on a hard burn. Vasquez was in the pilot seat, Hicks on weapons, Hudson on communications and Col. Sanders in the command/co-pilot seat.

“Hudson, anything?” the Colonel asked.

“Negatory sir. I’ll holler if I see anything but right now it is quieter than a virgin’s bedroom.”

“You’d know.” laughed Vasques.

”I’m holding out for you honey!” Hudson laughed back. “HOLY MOTHER OF GORRAM HELL!”

“What is it?” Sanders called out.

“Cortex is back and my board just lit up like a whorehouse sir. Personal transponder from upper class mucky muckys. Lots of them! Life pods! Five Star Liner – Star of Sihnon. They’ve been transmitting for hours sir.”

“Okay. Hudson, send a wave to high command. Get what they can to the life pods stat. We can’t stop.

“Whoa Colonel!” hick said evenly, “Regs says we have to ..”

“I know Hicks but we can’t take passengers, we need to find the mercs and codename Sparrow. I’ll take the heat if it goes south.”


“Yes Hicks?”

“It always goes south for us.”

“Luck is gonna change.”

“Sir! There are signals from LV-426 too. Definitely some people there. I am getting a distress signal from a transport ship called Rocking Naughty. “

“Run a background check on it Hudson. If some civilian ship came to rescue and are in the middle, I want to know all about them. Some people would sell their mothers for a credit.”

“Yes Sir.”

“Vasquez. If you can make this thing go faster – do it now. Hicks, run full ops on the weapons systems cause we will be going in hot. Hudson, call for backup. We’re gonna need it.”

I will look at it soon.

BTW - Sheldon in the caves is reacting to the sonic boom, not the shock wave. He mistakenly assumed that was his missile. Not that that affects anything.

Answers to the question

Via email, Bromern let me know -

Wyatt has the radio that is set to the Merc band.

The case is in the cave and given to Sifu. However since I do not want a NPC in charge of the case that means that Willow is now in charge of the case.

The second case (Matherson's) I await confirmation but I believe it is locked up in the infirmary with John. Please clarify if you know otherwise.

Subject: answers

I have often said that when people post they are posting what they think happens, and I am posting what actually happened.

As well, this is a game, controlled by dice and skills chosen and the GM say so. So things are not always going to go as you plan they will.

That being said:


I read your post Tann but Wolf set grenade traps using what skill? Covert - no he doesn't have that. Knowledge - no. Tech Eng Security systems? No. Hmmm. To quote Wolf himself I’m a mechanic Captain, not a bloody bomb maker

I decided to use Mech Eng as it was the closest and I wanted to find something you could use. However, there is a chance even with the best trap layers that something went wrong. Shit happens in combat.

So - Three flash bangs went off when the ASREV flew over. They did not hurt anyone or blind anyone defending. the soldiers had not entered the ship yet so they did not affect them either. Specifically they were the ones at the doorway between the catwalk platform and the door into the common area and Infirmary, the top of the stairs leading from the common area to dining area and the hallway to the engine room.

Sonic Boom

Not that your characters would know but Nancy created the dust cloud to cover the fact that she dropped the body with a message onto the shuttle. She then moved back to where she was suppose to be under same cover.

Shock Wave

I was reading your pre-post Ody in a hurry so I am sorry I did miss a point. The shockwave from the missile affected the shuttle that Tess was in because she was too close and the shuttle was not made for combat. Tess' Pilot skill failed and I played that she flew over-confidently. The 1-4 chances after that were, the ground, hit the Asrev, hit the Corvette and hit Rocinante.

So the shockwave from the missile did not throw Ma and Asher's shuttle around, nor did it affect the corvette or the soldiers.

Deputy Callahan

Nancy was not in the Wine adventure of Destiny. The feds were Sanders, Hudson, Hicks and Vasques. So there is a chance that Tess may gun down the fed spy, or vice versa.


I think it has been established that you can direct your calls on the comm to a number of people , so Asher can call out to everyone, or two or three as he sees fit.

I believe that we ended our association with the RPGshop awhile ago. Olan just has not taken down the link.

Subject: I need

A player to take over a Dwarf (Khord) cleric in the Isle of Putnam.

I may need a person to take over a pilot in Destiny if I do not hear from the player soon.

As to the Mutant Ranger 3.5 - Sorry. I just don't have a spot for that.

You play Ma well so I have no trouble with you taking the lead.
