Quirk: It occasionally vents cool mist in certain areas (2,3,6,7,15 and 21). This mist swirls and disappears quickly and is no harm to anyone. However some of you have noted that the mist often looks like a lady dressed in white. A ghost? Well, no one believes in ghosts do they?

Speed improvement
Better sensors to improve ship's INT
New thrusters to improve ship's AGI
A 3d imager in Infirmary (Newtech compact model)

Claymore Mines .... Don't ask about the mines.

This shows you how the shuttle would sit. Not the same ship of course.

Subject: yeah.....right


The crew doesn't have a "face" person. Someone to do the talk, walk the walk and never balk. You have a strong captain, a good pilot, a good medic with generalist skills, a formidable hired gun, and a strong mechanic with black market connections. I was thinking you needed someone who could talk to the moneyed individuals, the lords, the indusrialist, the underworld kings, the contacts and so on. Much like Willow does in Rocinante - the captain comes along but Willow does most of the talking.

I will be busy most of today as it is Easter. I would like to start posting the completed character however, quite a few sent to me are not complete. I need a few backgrounds because this game is background rich and I do use the backgrounds within the game. If i get a moment tonight before I go to bed I will PM everyone as to what I need for them.

The only thing missing are the doors on the utility hall and the engine room. Believe me, if there is a decompression, you want the airlock blast doors.

But this is great. Thanks Celeste.

Subject: hand drawn


Yes, I'm old school! I prefer pencil and graph paper. Odyson will make a joke here about my crudely drawn map.

Here is my reinterpretation and a review of the need for airtight blast doors if the worst happened. I have put a lift to all levels to haul injuried and equipment. The passengers have a circular stairs to get to their rooms, the engine room has a secured door and Grace has a ladder to her rooms. MMV suggested a trap door in the floor of the galley in case you are ever boarded and need a way that no one else knows about. Med is on the lower level,Captain is near the bridge and the exercise room has doors cause who wants to watch guys working out. (Grace will install a secret webcam girls)

Subject: nice work


What program are you using? I like it. And what is the font?

You technically don't need a head. Serenity didn't have one and each room would have a fold out privy as shown in the Firefly series. As to a shower - that is unlikely. The water is self contained within the ship and could not be wasted on showers. The toilets are not water based either which is why you have to pay to have your sanitation flushed when you are at port. Remeber the scene in the pilot where Inara is bathing with a sponge and dish? (vividly) Zoe speaks about awaiting the joy of a real bath with running water. That is life on a tramp freighter. When you dock, many space port's have rentable showers and baths.

The missile turret will hold a hover mule. Heck, Grace could even install a drop/lift - just don't try to operate without being in atmo.

You could change access to the guest rooms as through the lower part of the utility room and not through the engine room. Then the engine room could have blast doors which would be a real safe idea.

The utility deck is one level only. That section of the ship is smaller than the rest, like a big old tube.

The stairs can be changed to ramps in places. Remember each square is 5x5.

Subject: redo the ship


I am all for the redesign of the interior as long as you stay within the bounds of the outer walls estblished already. As GM I want you to be happy with your ship.

Who designed it? Good question. Why a brig on a fast ship with science lab level sensors? Why autocannons and a missile turret used to the point of exhaustion by no damage to outer haul? No emblem, marking and the computer system reformated and defragged. Shuttle intact by no crew or crew belongings? You do not know.

No matter where you put medical, there is a chance you'll have to use the stairs. Maybe you need a better access lvl to lvl than a circle stairs? the circlar stairs are a challenge to bring any furniture in. Does someone want to get out the graph paper and redo the design?

I'm off to look over Db's character.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Destiny it is then


I think Destiny wins as it have a good mandarin name as well and it suits the ship. I will call the game Destiny's Flight. I have some artwork I will use for emblems that you can pick from.

Celeste - The ship is as much a character in this game as are the crew so yes you may interact with the ship and its quirk if you wish, just don't get carried away. Later, I will even ask you to profile me with an NPC or two who would be people you'd know in the verse that you might call upon for help or advice.

Once I have all the characters in, I wil lpost them and we can flesh out the ship more. MMV has asked to convert the Brig into her room so she can be close to the engines. The rest of you will pick rooms, and you will all have to decide what to do with the ex-missile turret (game room, hydroponic garden, hanger for a hover bike, remove completely). Finally you will look at equipment for the ship (Grav suits, mule, hover mule, Infirmary, etc etc)

Subject: Quirk


All ships have a quirk - something unique about them that no matter of fixing will change. In Rocinante, when the ship goes to hard burn, there is a sound like a horse galloping across the length of the ship.

This ship has a strange quirk. It occasionally vents cool mist in certain areas. This mist swirls and disappears quickly and is no harm to anyone. However some of you have noted that the mist often looks like a lady dressed in white. A ghost? Well, no one believes in ghosts do they?

I have one that suits the nature of the background although it is similar to Serenity

How about: Serendipity

Serendipity is when you find something that you were not expecting to find.

A suggestion, you don't have to like it.

Hello

I am looking for an srtist who might be able to draw up a ship I will be using in a firefly campaign. I have floorplans, and some "similar to" images but I would like to have a picture of the ship in flight.

So it would be an sleek, all black vessel. These are the floorplans.

It would have a shuttle on the top, like this similar ship.

Any takers? Please?

Subject: sigh sigh


I go out of my way to make the game as much fun as it can be. I don't think anyone who games with me should suggest otherwise. in fact, I am trying to keep things fun for all. There is an excess to what is being suggested and I am trying to rein it in before characters who are suppose to be Big Damn Heroes go in and destroy a town of innocent people.

Remember the Pilot episode of Firefly? Jayne, Zoe and Mal know they are walking into a trap with Patience. Did Mal bring two machine guns, an assault rifle, a shot gun and his pistol? Does Jayne have Vera and grenades?

When they rescue the Doctor and River from the hillbillies that were gonna burn them - again Jayne is carrying one weapon, as is Mal as is Zoe.

So I'm trying to keep it "real" as in real for a sci-fi western. Firefly had a simplicity about it that made it wonderful (which the movie lost but that is another argument). So I would recommend you keep it simple.

BTW - the difference in range between the SMG and the assault rifle is 50 feet. That's all.

Subject: Characters


I will be posting the characters for all to see and familiarize yourself. Now your will have all been together between 5 to 2 years so you will have come to know each other and most importantly - trust each other. The life you lead, the jobs you take - you have to have the trust or you'd be dead.

So, think about your character and write a short blurb that would be how others describe him or her. Not pages please, just a paragraph or two - and send it to me so I can add it to your character.

Roger is a hard working fella who tends towards the serious side. Not one to laugh or play around - heck he rarely cracks a smile, but he is always there to offer a hand or cover a shift if someone needs him. His secret passion is cooking and he enjoys reading and writing.


I'm all for people knowing each other before the game starts because it adds to the story and the teamwork. Yes, it is cliche but cliche exists for a reason.
