Subject: soldier

I like the idea of a soldier rescued from the wreckage by Nazis and brought in as prisoner. Prehaps only awking now. The tech you have capture might tell you about him....

Topic: Castle Rautenberg Q n A
Subject: still thinking

I like this game too and have not moved on. I am just balancing the loss of two players on a five man team. I have no problem writing Brutal out with a heroic ending. A prisoner? Hurm. Sounds cheesy but hey this was always based on hollywood WWII, so what is a little cheese between cells?

Let me ponder. I am still quite busy (am at work right now actually) but things should be easing up by Friday.

Subject: YeOlde

Please read Blog on YeOlde if you have not already.

As Ken was not originally YeOlde's character, I have no problem with having another person take up the role. YeOlde will be sorely missed but Tann'Talas has offered to take on Ken so we can continue.

Any objections or thoughts - let me know now.

Please read Blog on YeOlde if you have not already.

With the Sam going NPC and YeOlde's passing we have some crew issues to look at. This is my solution. NOC the two until Brigit game is done.

Andrew Bowman will stay on Frisco to become new sheriff.

Sam will vanish leaving a note about enemies getting too close.

I have asked MMV to come up with a pilot to take over the helm. MMV is a good roleplayer and loves the Serenity verse.

Any thoughts or objections, bring them out now.

Topic: Castle Rautenberg Q n A
Subject: Nomad and YeOlde

With Nomad's RL situation and the passing of YeOlde, I am ay odds with how to proceed in the game. My gut instinct is to end this games and move on. But there are still three of you playing and I don't want to leave you if the interest is still there.

So let me know your thoughts. I will not have another player take YeOlde's character. I do not believe that is respectful. Brutal will be NPC'ed until he can be taken out of the story in a heroic or befitting way.

I am thinking of starting a RPG based on Supernatural the TV series. You'd play Hunters of the supernatural in the Real World. If we end this game, all of you are welcome to join that one.

Subject: Nomad and YeOlde

YeOlde messaged me that he has some serious health issues that are going to sideline him and I read Nomad's mesage about his RL.

Both of you are in my thoughts and I hope things work out as best they can. Don't worry, I will NPC until you are ready to come back.

Normally it takes years of playing before my players become twitchy and paranoid Odyson. So relax. My shoes are...wait a minute...who stole my shoes!?

You should see what my friends I've played with for 20 years are like. They just kill the guy trying to hire them because he has to be the bad guy!

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: search and .....

Alliance Cruiser Erikson Docking Bay 4c

"Listen up!" Colonial Sanders said loudly and firmly to the six alliance security officers awaiting his orders. His fellow Marshalls, Hicks and Vasquez stood behind him, relaxed but ready for action in the black uniforms. "This is a routine search for passengers not on the crew manifest. I do not want this ship trashed! I do not want any cargo opened, broken, or turned over unless I say so. A routine sweep, and be polite. Yes, I said polite. You do not need to know why and you do not need to wonder so just do as i say or you will look upon my man Hudson's job of cleaning every toilet on this ship as easy! Do you understand?"

"YES SIR!" The men answered in unison.

"Good. Vasquez! Hicks! Anyone disobeys my orders, I want you to put them out the nearest airlock. Understood?"

"Yes Captain." Vasquez answered and Hicks just nodded.

Destiny Cargo Bay.

The crew assembled in the cargo bay to await boarding. Ken was securing a back plan A though C under the floor and Grace was going over in her mind every exit, hidden exit and really really hidden exits that were in the room. "Looks like we in trouble again" she said outloud.

The door to the cargo bay was knocked on three times in succession. The Captain released the doorway and the cool ozone filled air of the alliance cruiser filled the noises of everyone waiting. In walked the white haired Captain/Colonel with two of his men from the planet, the voluptuous Vasquez and the silent Hicks - in full black dress uniforms too. Then behind them six security officers in armour, helmets and carrying rifles came in, split into two groups and flanked the Marshalls on either side. they did not point the weapons at you though, but held them at ready.

"Ahh. We meet again Captain Brown. I see you found a cargo. Wine? of course. At least you aren't flying empty?"

(small talk)

"My apologizes but I have the unfortunate task of finding some fugitives. I normally wouldn't be involved in this, but for some reason the orders were sent to me directly. Puzzling actually. Anyway i wish to put this behind me. We will be searching your ship for any of the smugglers that may have eluded capture. You wouldn't know anything about that?"

(assume no)

"Didn't think so. This is formality really." He waves his hand and the two groups leave to look over the ship. "But it is always the ship you don't search that is the problem."

(small talk)

"So you are going to Baron Otello's party! I hear it is quite the event. " The colonel walks over to the wine barrels and leans on one casually, "So this is THE wine? Heard about it. Suppose to be excellent. I'm not much into wine myself but I am sure you are being paid well. What is the going rate these days?"

(some elusive answer)

"Ahh." he says and taps the barrel in the centre a few time. "Yep. That is full." He continues and taps each one a number of times and then walks away from the barrels."Smugglers. never know where they are winning to hide. found some in the ventilation shafts of a septic system once. Now that's dedication to hiding."

(comments, questions)

After 30 minutes the teams return and reform ranks. Vasquez shakes her head at the colonel and he nods. "Right! Sorry about that. I thank you for your cooperation and time. I hope we didn't delay you too much."

(parting remarks)

The Alliance officers and the Marshalls leave the ship and the cargo bay is sealed again. Within fifteen minutes, the cruiser is detached and you are given clearance to leave.

Ash has taken 7 wounds and 7 stun (he had 18 wounds/stun). He took more but Ody used plot points to lower the damage.

Frisco, Day Nine 11:20 pm Planet Time

Apollo and Andrew took cover from the explosion and then the horror of what happened the possible fate of their friend grabbed hold.

Wuh de ma.....ASH!!”

“Ash?” Andrew asked over the communicator… he waited for a response… looking around the area… maybe he was thrown clear of the building… “Ash come in!”

Silence met their calls but then they were forced to take over again as ammo in the fire started to go off above like so many machine guns on auto-fire. There was nothing to be done but wait it out.

Then, as they were just about to get up as the bullets stopped exploding, they heard a voice call out, "HEY! Over here! I got a man down and I can't move these beams!"

Frisco, Day Nine 11:10 pm Planet Time

Ash hear a sound below him as he moved to the lookout. It was the sound of a sigh, or someone letting out their last breath. He turned and look down at Winnie, expecting the worst, as her wounds were too much for her and she let out her last breath. But then something fell out of her hand.

Oh Gorram!!!!"

Ash ran at full speed up the stairs of the lookout and dove over the side, rolling over the ledge and down the newly shingled roof.


The explosion roared in Asher's head and the fire licked at his backside. Somewhere instinct took over as he tumbled/was thrown but the force of the blast and he tucked up and rolled. He hit the edge of the roof with a hard thump that drive the wind out from him and them crashed to the ground again, his clothing smouldering.

Then the debris from the roof fell on him.

As ash lay there, still alive but pinned under the wood and beams of the rooftop, he wondered what the heck happened. The grenade would have been a localized blast. So unless Winnie had wired the entire second floor.... No. There were sounds above, of rounds of ammo going off in the fire. The Sheriff must have store a ton of ammo under the bed. After some time, the gunfire subsided.

"Asher! You there! You better be alive young man or else I may be powerfully upset at you ruining the work I put into saving you. Ain't too respectful to get yoruself killed before all the stitching heals." It was Doc McGuire's voice, followed by the sounds of someone moving debris. "HEY! Over here! I got a man down and I can't move these beams!" the Doc shouted.

How could I forget Order of the Stick. A true classic.

Looking for group never grabbed me. I read it when it started for about a yeah and it was mostly Sohmer being self-indulgent in my books. I didn't like Gutters for same reason.

Topic: Webcomics
Subject: Webcomics

I am a big fan of webcomics and I thought I would start a thread of sharing a favourites ones. Of course I love Loaded Dice and I write RPG Mythbreakers (and another that is coming soon).

Recently I discovered Weregeek which is another webcomic about a rpg group and their characters. I highly recommend it.

Also, a link from the four web-adverts above lead me to Fey Winds which is a good story about an adventuring group of complete misfits.

Other faves I follow:
Girl Genius
Evil Comics

So please share any you might have.
