Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: First round


Crow had his swords in hands so he moved forward to engage with the bugbear with sword and crossbow on back. The armour of his opponent turned his blade away from serious damage but he managed to draw blood with a upward thrust of the short sword between bands of armour. The bugbear howled angrily and attempted to take Crow's head clean off with a single swipe. The Syl dodged but not quite fast enough and took a blow that made his ears ring and a deep gash across the side of his head.

The Big Bugbear attempted to crush Wembley with his flail but the Cidal was too fast for him and he ended up spraying water everywhere with a wild swing. Wembley ran to the safety of the massage room.

Mal moved in to intercept the bugbear with shield and sword. The swashbuckler took advantage of the exposed flack and scored a deep cut across the leader's leg.

Gamard decide to use his new war hammer and move to put himself between the mage, the fleeing Cidal and the bugbear with shield that moved towards them. He easily dodged a blow from the creature and then dealt a hammer blow to the head that made the monster reel back in pain and shook. Just as it did, the burning hands from Alôndas hit it and the leader bugbear, causing fire to burn their fur and heat their armour.

Dudley drew his mace and called for luck from his god as he faced off against the Bugbear that just rang Crow's bell. He managed to make his presence known but the armour of the beast protected it from any serious damage.

OOC: Okay, so Mal, Dudley and Crow on one side face two while Alôndas and Gamard face two and Wembley is in the other room. Crow is has a serious wound.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Stephanie replies and takes action


"I got your note Catie. I take it you have met our Lady in White?"

Catie started to nod, but suddenly caught herself and stopped, "Maybe. I'm not sure what I saw. By that name, she fits the description..." She looked up, "White is a difficult colour."

Form a metaphysical perspective or a fashion sense?" Stephanie asked no sure where Catie was going with this.

"White doesn't occur very much. Even if you consider what is called white flour, it's not a pure white. Smoke would be an explanation, but to take that particular form and maintain it?" Catie jumps to her feet, her eyes gleaming, "Something I can't explain. It's really intriguing. But, putting aside everything about the 'what', the part that confuses me is 'why'. Why does she appear?"

"Ah. Well the why depends on who you talk to about her. Could be that we have venting gas and it takes a shape that makes one think of a lady in white."

Catie frowned, "When she appeared to me, she visibly looked worried. She was reaching her hand out, and I almost touched it, but she vanished. Maybe it was a suggestion for me to be particularly careful. I am trying to be, but the situation is not clear, and that lack of knowledge is potentially the most dangerous thing about this situation..."

"Or you can go straight to the paranormal answer of a watchful ghost. Really Catie? is that where you are going as a scientist?"

Catie folded the fan with a flick of her wrist and crossed her arms, "I can't speak in the definitive, but for Lilianna to make contact with a complete stranger, to trust them more than the people around her, that is incredibly suspicious. The feelings I get from her, her emotions... they don't fit. There's something more to this situation than just needing a private escort. I know we're not supposed to make it our business, but I don't feel like I can just let it go."

Stephanie shook her head. Catie was changing topics in midsentence and that was hard to follow. "What do you mean seek contact with a complete stranger? Did she say something to you?"

Catie blinked then scratched at her cheek, "Somehow... it starts making a bit of sense. Nothing definitive, yet... from the void, an outline of a picture." She shook her head, "Of course, I could be wrong. Anyway, it was a note that the girl passed to me. A note asking for help." Catie looks Stephanie in the eyes, "If I had to guess... she doesn't willingly want this marriage. That's making a number of assumptions, however, and the only thing I can try to do right now is get more information to get to the bottom of this."

"She gave you a note? Can I see it?"

(assuming that Catie passes the note to Stephanie) The doctor looked down at the crumpled piece of paper and read the words within Help Me. Please Help Me

Catie rubbed her forehead, "Naturally, it might turn out to be that case where it's better not to know, and you can't un-know after you know, but I'd rather find out I'm wrong. Finding evidence to prove correctness or disprove falsehood is a scientist's job."

Catie put the fan away, "Thank you, I just felt like I needed to talk to someone. I'm going to make some tea and take the tray up to the guest quarters. Perhaps I'll find out if I can get some more information that way... providing the means by which to obtain more notes. If not, well, the tea should help calm her nerves a bit. That girl seems so frazzled."

"NO!" Stephanie said, a bit more forcefully than she expected. "No you do not want to do that right now, maybe later but ... ummm... Grace is right now searching the luggage for any dangers or surprises and she has auto-locked all the passengers doors. I know! But she has done this before and it has saved our life so trust me on this! If you go up there, they will quickly discover that. No, she is not going anywhere and neither is the Bodyguard. We need to show this to Jon and quickly. Come on, we will go find him and I can fill you in on the events that have occurred recently that may shed some light on this note.

(assuming Catie joins Stephanie and looks for Jon while letting Catie know about kidnapping/death threats on Lilianna and the not so subtle seduction of the captain.)

Okay, bringing all together now. Depending on what Catie tells Stephanie, she may seek the captain immediately.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: catching up


OOC: JC found nothing in Asante bag that raised a flag with him. Seth is willing to swear an oath to only use his weapon in the defense of Lilianna.


Stephanie left Tess and Jon in the Cockpit and headed down to the Cargo Bay because that was where she last saw Angela. Part of her wondered the wisdom of filling in Angela n what was going on, but she quickly dismissed that from her mind. Angela was a person and had the right to be treated as one. This memory issue of hers was a challenge but not one that could not be worked around.

She came down the stairs and walked into the Cargo to see Grace hauling her 3d imaging device across the bay with Angela obviously keeping watch. The fact that Angela smiled at her and did not give the alarm meant Grace did not include her among the list to watch out for. The doctor sighed heavily.

“Stephanie? What brings you to the cargo bay?” asked Grace as she pushed the machine into the room. Grace noticed Stephanie’s eyes drifted to the X-ray machine, “Hey, Jon told me to x-ray the luggage! It helped last time!” defended Grace.

“I’m not sure why I bother keeping that in the infirmary. You use it more than I do. I am here to bring Angela up to speed with the recent events that have occurred.”

“Did something happen? What do we need to know?” asked Grace in confusion.

“You don’t know? I thought you ...” Stephanie trailed off as she realized what she was about to suggest. She made a twitchy hand gesture at the ceiling and let Grace fill in the blanks.

Grace sighed “Believe it or not, I don’t have cameras and bugs everywhere. I just have them where it would do the most good. I’m cautious, not a snoop.”

“I’m sorry. That was not what I meant. You have a way of knowing things before we all think about the threat, that is all.”

Stephanie told Grace and Angela about the kidnapping rumours, the threats to LF life and the reason for the night time pickup. She also told them about the proposition of the wedding planner on Jon.

(I am going to assume that Grace shares the info with Stephanie on Asante and Seth)

Upon hearing about the incident with Jon, Grace had to bite her lip to stop herself from laughing. Lady Luck does not like the Captain at all…

“Wow…and I thought my luck was bad. Any ways, thanks for telling us, Stephanie. Now I have a lot of luggage to scan and secrets to find out. Don’t worry, I won’t enhance the machine. Have a good night.” said Grace.

Stephanie nodded, “Have fun Ladies. I need to find Catie. Have you seen her about?”

Both the girls shook their heads and Stephanie left them to look for her friend. As she did, she saw her infirmary door was open (Grace!). She went to close it and noticed a note left on her desk. She read it and it was from Catie saying she was in her room and wanting to talk to her.

Once Stephanie got to the room, she found Catie there with an ornamental fan in one hand and looking like she had ... well seen a ghost.

“I got your note Catie. I take it you have met our Lady in White?”

Destiny Cargo Bay, Day One of Journey. 3:00 AM ST

In the cargo bay, the 3d imager hummed away but wasn’t finding anything of interest. Clothes, clothes, clothes, a few personal items, some stuffed animals and the likes. Not exactly planning a wild honeymoon was she? One thing caught Angela’s eye was there was a picture frame, wrapped in a bundle of clothing and stuffed into a side pocket of one of the large trunks. The imager could not show the picture itself, but it was odd that she would hide a picture.

The only other thing that sparked Grace’s interest was a small round device in another of the trunks. The device resisted the imager so it could not penetrate it, but it was small – about the size of a bottle cap. There was a faint energy signature to it, meaning it had power but no signal coming from it.

OOC: The only way to look closer at either item is to break into the luggage.

Today is GM day. A day to celebrate the game masters and Dungeon masters who painstakingly make up the adventures for the players. Without a GM to volunteer to make the maps, stock the rooms and trap the corridors, we'd just be a bunch of friends wandering around in the dark.

So here is a toast to the GM that created this site and gives us a place to play. Here is to Olan (Sudden Death) Suddeth!

Huzzah!
Huzzah!

Subject: postage


I will post soon to have Stephanie leave Jon and Tess, find Grace and Angela and then goto the Infirmary, find Catie's note and then seek out Catie. Jon in the meantime will talk to JC. This should put us all on the same page.

Interesting that Catie became distracted by the ghost but do make sure that she remembers the note that Lilianna passed her as it is rather vital to the story.

Subject: thoughts on life skills


I am thinking that there should be something in the rules for basic life skills on a ship. I was thinking that everyone would have a basic d2 in pilot (ship and shuttle), drive (Mule or rover) and basic repairs. So nothing fancy but able to steer, land, lift off and coast if necessary.

Thoughts?
