Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: okay

Would like to go on a post but I think I will try to let Vanadia post tonight and then do one tomorrow. So let me get this straight - you will drop Wolf and Professor out the cargo without stopping. Next you land at the part authority, get out and head to the mine to meet Brigit? While you are in mine, W, P and A get together and ... take out the deputies?

Just want to make sure we are all on the same page.

Topic: Escape From Castle Rautenberg
Subject: going in

Greta takes one of the G41 rifles and a sidearm as Luke works on the engine. If she is to watch for the "enemy" she might as well be prepared for it. She shakes her head at the enormity of her situation. She laughs ruefully and says to no one in particular, "Well, Intrepid did say I'd get caught up in field work. Not sure if this is what he meant." She smiles at the young American medic who brings her food and nod when he suggest coffee. She wouldn't need the coffee to stay alert tonight.

When the reach the gatehouse before the bridge, great knows something is wrong. "This should be manned at all times and the guards would not leave their posts lightly unless ordered to - be wary, it could be a trap" she whispers.

The darkness of the mountains is foreboding and the silent seems to hang over everything. There is no sounds beyond the wind and branches - even birds and insects seem to avoid this place.

The team takes their places with Brutal on point as usual. Ms. Hofstetter, stays at the back of the party as does McGuiness to cover at distance. She seems to be well versed with the rifle, holding with a porfessional poise and detachment.

Just before the gatehouse, Brutal (at point) spots something on the roadway - it is another schmeisser, but on the ground discarded. He raises his fist to call halt and reaches down - the weapon is very warm, the muzzle is bent as if hit or twisted by force. Pulling off the mag he sees it is empty. There is no sign of anything fight here, no shell casings in the area.

Subject: well....

As I see it - Olan, Robert, and Vanadia are sidelined by RL. Raven and Admiral are not completely sidelined but definitly busy. Bromern is looking for another job and Tann has his Mom to take care of as well.

As much as I love this game I think we need to call this one.

Topic: Castle Rautenberg Q n A
Subject: Two, count them two

Odyson's list is correct except that there are only two Schmeissers. There have been some posting of taking weapons.

I will be taking over the role of Greta as an NPC. Vanadia doesn't really have to time to game right now.

Extra Weapons and stuff as I have recorded (correct me if wrong):

Luke - Gewehr 98 rifle, Luger
Romo - Schmeisser
Reid - Betolla
Brutal - Shotgun, Binoculars, Schmeisser
McGuiness - bayonet, torch
Greta - Luger and g41 rifle

Please state if you are taking something as if you do not, I assume it is left behind as you can't carry everything. Round it up here in the Q&A before we get over the bridge please.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: hurm

Seems like #2 is the most popular with #4 a close second.

For for some of the comments made, I was trying to capture the idea of Destiny in the emblem. I am not a graphic artist by any stretch of the imagination so if someone wants to offer an alternative, feel free.

As well, in Serenity they are not spaceships - you will notice that no one calls them that. They are called boats, "the" is never used before the name - hence Serenity not The Serenity. JW did this with the purpose that vessel was more than a mode of transport.

Don't worry about finding all the costs yet Celeste. I will provide that when the time comes.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: yep

Other things to think of:

Armor for Destiny? Destiny takes damage just like you do so some armour could be handy.
Backup life support? You have auxilary only (3 days for 6 people)
Parts cache - Perhaps one of all major "we need this or we don't fly" engine parts.
Cortex link? Discreet cortex Link?
High end communications?
Up/Off Market modifications?

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Limits - of course

There will be a cash limit but to be honest, I haven't gone there yet. At this point I am thinking either 3000 credits (one year maintenance) or the price of selling an autocannon system, a missile turret and assorted non-essential computer guidance systems (slightly used).

I'll decide soon and get going on it, present all of you options.

Subject: where we are

I did want to finish Rautenberg first but the response was so good and fast that I will endeavour to start sooner. One of my other games appears to be dead unfortunately so I have some time.

I am still waiting on Dragonblood's Character.

We need to equip the ship. You will want a hover mule, an infirmary and spacesuits. Is there an other equipment or specialty items you wish to have?

Then I will write up the background story and the lead into the adventure.

I want a picture of the ship I have shown above (Destiny) based on the images I have here. It really isn't anything like Serenity. A black sleek ship with side wings, smaller long engines and a shuttle on the top.

Subject: complete ship

Just looking for a complete picture of the ship, preferably in flight either through the black or near a planet. A view similar in angle to the fourth image shown here.

If you want to hear the song) - the video is silly but the song is great.

Reach a hand to the crescent moon
grab hold of the hollow.
If she sits in the palm of the left
that moon will be fuller tomorrow.
If she sits in the palm of the right
that moon is on the wane
and the love of the one who shares your bed
will be doing just the same.

Won't you come with me, she said,
`there's plenty of room in my iron bed
You're looking cold and tired
and more than a little human
I know I'm not part of the life you had planned,
but I think once your body feels my hand
your mind will change
and your heart will lose its pain'

Out among the fields gently hipped
beneath the corn,
Assiniboine bones beneath the highway
he stood there and he thought of home
A finger traces the path of a satellite
You're drawn to a distant copse of trees
A voice as sweet as Mare's Tail
clings to the prairie breeze

`Won't you come with me', she said,
there's plenty of room in my iron bed
You're looking cold and tired
and more than a little human
I know I'm not part of the life you had planned,
but I think once your body feels my hand
your mind will change
and your heart will lose its pain.

Do I reach for you
when I know you're on the wane?
Do I sense you when I know you're not around?
Do I search for you
when I know you can't be found?
Do I dare to speak your name?

Raise your eyes to a moonless sky
and try to wish upon a rising star.
Search all you want for her blessing
but you won't find her sparkling there.
Now cast your eyes to a part of the sky
where nothing but darkness unfolds
and watch as all around you
she reveals the brilliance of secrets untold.

Won't you come with me, she said,
there's plenty of room in my iron bed.
You're looking cold and tired
and more than a little human.
I know I'm not part of the life you had planned,
but I think once your body feels my hand
your mind will change
and your heart will lose its pain.

Stephanie young was a doctor for many years before the unification war began and was well known as one of the best surgeons in the “verse. She was a surgeon by the time she was 26, a chief surgeon at 30 and became chief resident of the Emergency by 35. She went on to develop new techniques and methods of surgery that saved hundreds of lives. Always on the go, she never found time for relationships and never married.

During the war she was in charge of a state of the art mobile hospital on the alliance side. What made her famous was her passion to save lives and refusal to separate patients by which side they were on. She became a “darling” of the news vids during the war for her passionate fight to keep soldiers alive and her well-documented fights with military brass about treating enemy soldiers. Her reputation was so well known and popular that the Alliance had to bow to her wishes or risk public relations disasters.

Her ship was shot down about midway through the war and she was captured by independence fighters who knew her from the vids and reputation. She continued her work as a doctor for the Browncoats but under the same stipulations she had before, that she treated everyone equally not just one side. When the war ended, she was decorated by both sides as hero of the war. The medals meant little to her as she more thought about all those she couldn’t save.

She tried to resume a normal life and was offered a high position in the Arial hospitals but she found her job was mostly admin and didn’t enjoy it. She took to doing work at a charity clinic where she at least felt she was doing some good. It was through the clinic that she met Captain Jon, who was shot up bad after a botched job. She joined the crew shortly after that on a whim to see the ‘verse and find “herself”. The truth is she has a secret love for Captain Jon but won’t act upon it due to their age differences. Of the crew, only Tess and Grace know of the unrequited love.

Stephanie has a gift of reading people medically by touch. She can diagnose someone with the simplest of contact, and this ability has served her well over the years. For people she is very close to, she can sometimes know when they are in trouble or in danger. Only Jon and Grace are aware of this gift although Jon has not confronted her on it and really doesn’t know how to express his suspicion. On the other hand, Grace has already determined (in her own mind) that the doctor was experimented upon by Alliance scientists and escaped which is why she came abroad the ship – to keep moving and avoid detection (and her secret is safe with Grace).

Stephanie often spends her time in the infirmary reading and cortex surfing. When on planet she often finds places nearby that could use a doctor and volunteers for as much time as she can manage.

On Stephanie:
Stephanie is a consumate professional, very self-possessed, and has a bearing to her that immediately demands respect. She is well known, well respected and is prefectly willing to use that to get her own way. She is fiercely loyal to ship and crew, especially the captain.

She is very quiet mostly, a good listener and always willing to be there for someone without any demands. If working on someone as a doctor, she can become super focused on her task, so much so that she will ignore a gunfight going on to save a life.

The doctor has no family, no children and has never married. Her romantic life is best described by her as many ships passing in the night but never docking for more than a few days.
