Topic: Rocinante needs a pilot
Subject: Rocinante needs a pilot


I am looking for a player to join the crew of the Rocinante, a Firefly mid-bulk transport operating under Captain Wyatt. The games has been running for some time and I need someone to take over as pilot.

You must have some knowledge of the Verse and the Serenity setting. I need a player who can get into a character because it is role-play heavy. As to game mechanics, it is the cortex system but I can guide through most of that.

So if you are interested, let me know here or through PM. Give me a character concept that makes me want to see you in action. The current campaign will be ending soon so ASAP.

Subject: another one bites the dust

Hornsilver Mine - Secret Room, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:25 am Planet Time

“Tze Sh'unTze Mieh,” he muttered under his breath. The hackles on the back of his neck immediately rose up and danced a little jig. “Miss Willow. There might be more t’ this than still meets the eye. People don’t mark crates with this much hoodoo jus’ t’ scare off the locals.”

“Normally,” Sam added in a dry tone. “I’d be all about disagreein’ with Wyatt and saying somethin’ like, ‘Break this Hwen Dan thing open and let’s each take a turn rollin’ around nakkid on the bricks.’ But seein’ how this thing’s been buried fer so gorram long, and we’re neck deep in back-stabbin’ Go shi...I’m thinkin’ we need to proceed with caution. I saw a data card reader plugged into the walk over there. might have some juice left.”

"Sam!" Willow called crisply, "Walk away, my pet and don't rile Miss Brigit up any more. Buddha only knows whatever else she may have hidden away under those skirts. And you, my pretend schoolmarm, " Willow turned her imperious gaze on the redhead," even a fake teacher should be smarter than breaking the seal on something before you check it out. Amateurs! I work with amateurs!

"Don't want to be breaking anything without at least a clue of what's in there. Maybe a trace was left on this side of the glass when it was sealed." She leaned in with both hands held before her as if to sweep further inside the sarcophagus, allowing her to sweep up the datadisk in the hand with the analyzer box.

She watched the of the analyser as she swung it back and forth across the glass cover. Nothing was detected for the first few sweeps but just as Willow was about to declare it safe there was a blip. Then there was another. The scanner was picking up a viral pathogen , trace amounts on the side of the case where it held down the corners. The spinning circle showing the analyzer working seemed to spin and spin forever before it put out in red lettering "Warning: Surface Contamination. Virus Unknown. 76% genetic similarity to Influenza 4167 - Bio-weapon" in both english and mandarin.

(assuming you tell everyone in the room that the money is contaminated)

Brigit goes red in the face, "What! No! Ten years chasing down this score and you tell me it's contaminated? No! No gorram way! it's a trick. You want it all for yourselves don't you!? That bastard Benny put you up to this? I'll be dammed if I let some greenhorn like you steal it from me now. It's mine! I earned it and I'm the only one who'll be walking out with it!" She looks around the room and then steps back.

Suddenly there is a huge bang form the corridor to this room as if something just fell on the hatchway. then you hear the muffle sound of gunfire - like a shotgun.

Brigit take the distraction runs over to a crate nearby where a crowbar is resting. "Here! I'll show you." she says as she grabs the crowbar and heads towards the coffin with the intent to smash open the glass.

Hornsilver Mine - Old Shaft, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:25 am Planet Time

Ash dropped the optical bomb on the hatch and it lights up like a yuletide tree on fire. Both Wolf and Ash then drop to the ground, rolling to the left and right as they do.

The Mustard boy is out from his cover and around the corner of the second drift so the bomb didn't hurt him. Yet he has to come running to see what is happening as he was heading down the second drift. He fires two shots at Wolf as best he can with the rifle but his shots are two high of the mark. Wolf risks a shotgun blast and the wide spread wings the deputy on the right shoulder. Ash moves quickly with knife drawn, but a wild swing of the rifle end clips him in knee as Mustard scrambles back in pain. Ash rolls and thrusts with his knife, cutting deep into the gut. With a howl, Mustard kicks Ash in his injury knee and raises the rifle like a club with intention of beating Asher to death with the firearm.

Wolf spares no time as he rushes forward to save his friend and with a close range shot to the head, drops the last deputy. The rifle falls from his dead grip and his body shuffles off its mortal coil.

The shotgun blast echoes throughout the shaft and dirt falls from the ceiling, timbers creek and a few rocks shift from the noise. Pearson wasn't lying, this place is unstable. Luckily it settles down quickly but firing off the shotgun in here could be very dangerous.

I saw it on Monday and i loved the movie. Very well done in that it was funny in places, serious in others and told a story just like reading a comic. I will defeinitely be seeing it again and buying the Blu-ray.

Did anyone get the after-credit clip? Who was the villian? Is that Thanos?

Subject: comm calm

Wolf has a working comm but you'd need to find the frequency they were using. That is not impossible, but it will be difficult. Wolf could use his Mech skills to try (use comm to quickly click through frequencies until you hear the brother's comm give feedback). Wolf might even have local knowledge to know what range was likely given he knows the brothers.

Another option would to drop down at same time, as he is distracted by radio and hope that two targets will cause a moment indecision that you can use.

Or drop a flashbang and pray the mine doesn't collaspes, because if it does and you survive, you will still be unemployed.

Sorry if I pushed the second lever forawrd so fast but really I wated to get past the lid and to the decision part. You can backpost and just assume Brigit moves too quickly for you to stop her.

Hornsilver Mine - Secret Room, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:20 am Planet Time

Wyatt and Sam lifted the lid up and moved it to the side. The lid is heavy, very heavy and it takes some effort for the boys to lift it up and put it down without letting it drop and crash. Once it is done, all four of you look at what awaits you inside.

There is a second layer inside the sarcophagi, and it appears to be made of lead. The lid within is smooth with no handhold except a single latch on the one side with a pull lever. Theis lever would normally be used to hold a vacuum seal within, thus but pulling you break the seal and let air in to lift the lid. The lever has been welded shut. Embossed on the lid are the images of hundreds of skulls and an inscription "Rung Tse Fwo Tzoo Bao Yo Wuo Muhu" (Merciful Buddah protect us).

"That looks pretty gorram airtight to me...." Sam says with a whistle and steps back from the coffin. "Don't know about all you but I'm not feeling to keen on this here treasure anymore."

Brigit laughed, "don't worry lover, I got this one covered." and she hikes up her skirt to pull a 6 inch long strip of tape from her thigh clip. Without waiting for approval, she puts the tape across the sealed lever and pulls off the backing. "Shield your eyes Sugarbears!" She calls as she turns her head from the casket. The tape glows brightly for a second and then flared up with a incandescent flash. Where there was a lever before there is now a melted hole in the lid. There is a sound, of a mechanism release and the lid lifts up on its own.

Beneath the lead lid is huge pile of platinum bars, coins and ingots. They are stacked neatly in the bottom of the sarcophagi, waiting to be had. Except that there is a third lid of glass covering the loot. The melted lead has pooled and started to hardened on the glass but did not melt through. Etched in the glass is "Tze Sh'unTze Mieh" (Leave one to his own fate).

Willow spots something tucked with the wall of the glass lid and the lead box. She sees it is a data disk, marked with independence markings.

Brigit curses like a freighter driver on a Kessel run. "Another lid? Just wasting our time! Sam! Shoot the glass and it will shatter. Or we can take that first lid you boys lifted off and drop it on the glass. Look at the platinum! We are rich! What are you waiting for?"

Hornsilver Mine - Old Shaft, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:20 am Planet Time

Ash and Wolf continue down the shaft as quietly as they could but every groan of the rebar ladder, every step on the ladders and every breath they took seemed like a brass band playing "I'm here" as loud as can be. They reached the edge of the old shaft and waited a second. Below them, there seemed to be a circular metal plate in the floor, cleaner than anything in a mine should be unless someone or something just wiped it clean. Doesn't take a genius for both of them to realize it is a doorway down to something and it has been opened recently.

"Winnie! You there! Come on girl! Answer me" A voice whispers in the shaft below along with the keying of a mike. "Darryl? Douglas? You boys there?" *Click**Click**Click**Click* "Stupid gorram thing is broken."

The last Mustard brother waits in the dark, and if either Wolf or Ash were in the position the bet, they be betting he is watching the door below them, waiting for it to open - which was incidentally where they would land too. Just as they start to think about plan or diversion though, the heard the sounds of gunfire. Hard to say where from the echoes in the mind, but far enough away.

"Sheriff! Sheriff! You okay! You need Backup!?" The brother says loudly into his comm set and you hear him getting up and moving. This could be your best and only chance....
