Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: q's and a's


Meteor Sam is Sam Hawkes. Sam is the co-owner of the Lullabelle Mine which is on a comet and mines "ice" which is methane, hydrogen and other chemicals frozen. Sam Hawkes was a independent soldier who served on the Lucius Newberry, helped load the crates on to it and was left behind when the going got tough. Wolf was not on the Roc during the time they met the crew but he is the reason Kora stayed behind and Wolf got his new job. Now when the crew met him, a fellow named Ernest Ludlow showed up, tried to snatch Sam Hawkes and acted like a cold-blooded bounty hunter. Wyatt shot him in the head which made life not worth living anymore. Wolf knew Ernest from Frisco and his brother Ethan - two real bad asses. Now Ethan was part of the bank robber crew and Wyatt killed him too (I think...can't remember who killed whom). But Ernest was no bounty hunter and Ethan was a slacker who didn't do anything unless someone gave him the idea. Both were "sweet' on Brigit. Draw your own connections.

Wolf doesn't know the mines as you worked topside. Bailey kept you out of the mine to prevent you getting the disease that miner's get. Yes, Bailey could get you into the mine.

The general feeling of the miners was they loved Brigit and all she did. The married woman-folk aren't too keen on her for obvious reasons but she was accepted in general.

The folks of frisco didn't really pay much attention to Wolf as you kept to yourself and didn't make trouble. Miners stick to miners, town-folk stick to town and you were generally on the outside of any group.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: It is all in the cards


The party stood for a moment, pondering the events that had just occurred. Two paths available and something that seemed to be leading down one – was it a trap?

“Perhaps I can enlighten our way.” Flynn said as he drew forth a deck of cards from his side pouch. “These are the tool of my people for telling of fortunes and predicting the future. Although I make no claim of clairvoyance, they have guided my path to safety before.” He crouches on the floor, shuffling the deck and then puts down seven cards in a cross pattern on the floor. “All major arcane, I might have guessed,” he mumbles, and then casts a card to the east and another to the south. The one to the south shows a man at a table with a scroll in hand and items on a table before him – The Magician. To the east is a tower, with a lightening bolt crashing down to render the building in half and occupants being cast down from the heights – The Tower.

“That is very clear for a reading.” Flynn says standing again, “Wisdom and knowledge lies to the south while destruction and chaos await us to the east.”

“I’ll take Wisdom then over the chaos.” Arien says, “Dapple, check the door our host is leading us toward. Maximus – stand ready to open the door.”

The corridor to the south has three doors, two on the left and right across from each other and another at the end. Dapple checks the right side for traps and then nods to Maximus. The gladiator steps forward to open the door, with weapon at ready as Dapple moves back to the shadows.

The room is a library, a very large library with books and scrolls on shelves that go head to toes on all available walls. Toward the back of the room near the far wall is a large desk with a few book on it, a ink pot, a stand with quills, and a tall wooden chair. There is a musty smell in this room that one associates with paper and dust. There is no one in the room and no signs of anyone passing within.

As the party enters the room to look around, everyone gets a feeling of safety and protection – as if the tension of the temple and the mission has been left behind in the corridor. Kilgim knows this feeling, having felt it before in temples and churches – the room is a protected sanctuary. Even Sunset, who has been on edge since entering the temple, seems to relax on Dapple's shoulder.

As you start to look around for things that might be of interest, suddenly one of the books on the desk opens and the cover makes a loud noise as it hits the desk. *CRASH* The pages flip violently and then settle – opened to about three quarters through the tome’s content. There was no wind to cause it to open, and no one was close enough to touch the book.

Subject: On leadership


As I am npcing Arien right now, I will be playing him as following the party lead or what is obvious. if it comes down to a real decision I will poll the party members here and then do whatever Char decides.

Kidding.... What the party wants by majority. if it is a tie, what Char decides.

I got sucked into the oscars last night for some unknown reason. It was so craptastic that I kept watching waiting for it to get better.

Anyway - I hope to be posting tonight.

Tann - I have sent the blessed character three times now. I think the gods have spoken and they want me to delete Maximus.

Topic: Escape From Castle Rautenberg
Subject: Should have brought that bard


"Schnell!!, oeffnen Sie das Tor, und warnen ihren Kontact das fremde Soldaten im Dorf von Barovia sind.Ich habe einen verwundeten Soldaten hier und brauche einen echten Arzt nicht dieses amarikanische Schwein" Romo shouts.

The soldiers look to each other at first and for a few moments it seems like bluff works. The Nazi soldier closest takes a number of steps towards the car, "Amerikaner? Wie haben sie ...?" he stops in mid sentence as if seeing or realizing something.

What sets him off you do not know, could be that Romo's accent was too southern, could be something in your body language, or the presence of a gorgeous blond in your midst. Either way, he back stepped and draws his machinegun upwards. "AMERIKANERS! !!! AMERIKANERS! !!!"

The other two closest start to react quickly, also bringing their weapon up. The last one, further away turns and breaks into a sprint across the bridge, staying to the side closest to the waterfalls so the mist gives him partial cover.


OOC: The lead has a Schmeisser. The two in the back have G41 rifles. The guy running has his gun on his back but it looks like a G41 as well.

Actions people! the combat round is very simple in this game. You can move and shoot (I leap out iof the car and fire), or shoot and move(I open up and then hit the ground) or not move and shoot twice (I'm gonna mow them all down!). If you choose not to move, then you only have a basic defense. A round is only 3 second long. Feel free to ask questions as this is your first combat.

Subject: The role of Arien will be played by a tall, dark and psychotic man


Arien is NPCville for awhile until Olan sells his house, buys another one and stops having kids. So your leader thinks that you should check out the room the vision went into. He thinks you have gone too long without gratitious violence and sex. He also thinks that he should abandon his armour for a pink teddy and fuzzy slippers.

If you have a plan to cast spells or whatever you go into the room, let me know before Sunday.

Just to let you know, We lost the internet and phone line this weekend to maurader squirrels (they ate through the main hub). Phone lines should be replaced but Wed morning but knowing Bell I would add a day to that estimate.

Topic: The Avatar State
Subject: The Avatar State


Hello,

I have recently cleaned up all the avatars on the site to the proper size. I will now monitor the avatars more regularly and try to keep them up to date.

All avatar submissions are subject to approval. All avatars MUST be gaming-related and must be non-animated. Ideally, avatars should be cropped to about 54 x 64 pixels, and will be .gif or .jpg.

PLEASE: Do not submit files with huge names (like more than 30 characters) as they become corrupted real fast. Also do not submit pictures with a signature on them or a website logo. Finally I would ask that you remember this is a family site and the avatars should be PG.

Thank you.
Alacrity

I have completed the avatars. If you fina any that are still too big, let me know.

If you submitted one and you can't find it, let me know. Some were unable to be used. Some were bad file. Some might have been lost.

Mysterion,

I have taken on the job of sorting out the Avatars over this long weekend. I will take a look at the current avatars, the submitted one and do the resizing, approving and rejecting. Please be patient.

Subject: answers for the honey


Did I get a code from Benny (or Grandfather) for the key? Is that something Bowman could find within the data in the key itself?

No. He gave no code or even mentioned a code.

If Bridget says the blockade is no longer needed because the key's been found...how the heck would the Alliance know? Is she playing everyone on this?

Good question. How far is here influence? But you really don't know. She is certainly suggesting that she has the power to make the blockade go away.

How long to Lullabelle? If Bridget tells us not to go, I'm pretty sure it would be a good idea to go...Sam and Kora may have more info, and they would likely be more than happy to join us on a little revenge. Having more peeps on our team than Bridget expects would be an advantage

Less than a day to the comet. You can always send them a wave as well if getting to Frisco fast is your agenda.
