Subject: divide???


I can not recall that there was a drawn up list for who got what shares and pay. Frankly, you haven't ever had a lot of money to consider doling it out before. When you got the 1000 from JW for the first load of ice there wasn't much to got around. I will skim through the postings and see if I can find anything.

Need to figure something out though as of your 7 man crew, 3 are new.

It looks like we started talking about this and never finsihed the process. As I can see it. Wyatt owns the ship clear (No debt). Willow bought 2 shares, Kora 1 and Ash 1. Trish was never included and I think she isn't really in this for the money or glamour. Now Kora is gone and you have no decided what to do with Wolf. Once we start anew, you will have to decide what to do about Tess and John as well.

If I look at the TV series, I think that salary was sorta a percentage of job. Remember that Jayne worked for basically his own room, food and 5% of job profits.

I have some questions actually, mostly for the Captain but I am sure you will all chime in:

Did anyone tell JW or Bailey about the tainted platinum in the mine in case they decide to explore the collapse?

You have 3000 credits, are you gonna spend it on the ship, pay the crew, hold it for lean times, a bit of all?

Did anyone warn Bowman about the triplets?

I was planning to do the pilot auditions as a narrative but if Loki and Celeste would like to write their own, I am all for it. You will basically be one of three finalists (John, Tess and a guy named Gator). Wyatt will show you to the the controls and ask you to take off, fly around for a spell and then land. His only instruction beyond that is "impress me".

Let me set the scene first and Gator will go first, then Tess and finally John.

Aging Tess ... Sure, no problem and I have no problem with Tea or a tea set as long as it don't fire explosive ammo or rockets.

Weaver needed the happy ending in my books and as for Jimmy, I was thinking creepy all the way. Jimmy died in the the jailcell but now, James is in town and nothing really matters anymore to him except getting revenge on Willow. I am sure you will cross paths with him again.

One last loose end to complete and that is what was on the datadisk you found. Then I will post the "pilot auditions" to get the new players in, then a fast forward a few months and bada - new game starts.

Subject: Newhouse ending


Beylix, Newhouse, Sheriff Office

Sheriff Arness disconnected the transmission and slam the vid screen down hard. "Damn it!" he yelled loudly, "I knew I should have shot that man when I first saw him."

Deputy Weaver was over by the cells talking to Jimmy, offering him a drink and some condolences, "Listen I am really sorry about your parents Mr. Blake. I hate to see it when the world of luck turns against a man. Let me talk to teh sheriff in a bit and I ..."

"Oh don't both Weaver! I am sure Jimmy boy doesn't want to hear it from the likes of us, isn't that right boy?"

Jimmy looked up from his cot, his eyes still partially blacken by the beating that the sheriff gave him a week ago. "Whatever. You really think you can hurt me anymore Sheriff?" he sniffed dismissively, "Deputy Weaver, thank you. I appreciate your decency"

"Yes yes yes, very decent our man weaver. Be a decent fella now," the sheriff drawled as he drew out his pistol. "Be so decent as to unlock the cell."

"Unlock the prisoners sir?"

"Yes. Quick as a bunny. Time for Jimmy to escape."

"Oh!" Weaver smiled, "So you 'll let him go so he can bury his family. I knew you'd ... "

"No so I can shot him repeated as he escapes. If I can't get money from him, I might as well enjoy myself."

Jimmy started and moved away from the cell door. Weaver stepped in front of the jail cell and put his hand out at the Sheriff, "Now now Sheriff. You don't want do that."

"Oh yes I do. get out of the way."

"Come on Sheriff."

"Weaver that was an order."

"you'll have to kill me first sir."

"Okay then." And the sheriff cocked the hammer back and pointed his gun at Weaver with no remorse or hesitation. But before he could shoot, the door behind him opened and Miss Ellie came into the office, with a tray full of what she passed off as food.

"Howdy all!" She said as she turned around, her eye going big as she saw the gun, "I made Beef stew with ...um...umm. What's going on?"

The sheriff smiled. Not a nice smile of seeing a friend but a hungry, cruel smile of someone who decided he wanted something and was gonna take it. "Miss Ellie! Put down that slop and get ready to start paying interest!"

Fear engulfed her eyes, "What? No! We agreed..."

The sheriff was on her in a heartbeat, grabbing her by the hair and pushing her face down on his desk. He laughed pleasantly as he held her down and shouted, "No it is payback time and I am going to enjoy this!" He pulled at her dress as she struggled helplessly. "Weaver. go stand outside and make sure we aren't disturbed."

"No! Sheriff Stop!" Weaver cried out.

"LET me go!"

"Now Weaver! "

Sheriff Arness never really knew what hit him as he took the first shot through the head and the rest into his chest. He was dead long before he hit the ground. The deputy stared down at the gun in his hand and could not for the life of him remember drawing or firing but he had.

"Oh my Buddha. You shot the sheriff." Jimmy said from the cell.

Miss Ellie was crying and screaming. The deputy dropped the gun and ran to her to hold her tight and tell her that everything would be okay. that she was safe and Arness would never bother her again.

People came running to the gunfire in the sheriff's station. The was an initial shock and disbelief but Jimmy was not surprised to see that no one really was saddened by the loss of the sheriff. Once the story got out of what happened, then people started talking about the mean and nasty deeds of the sheriff and how he was a money stealing woman grabbing Kuh Wu Jwei Gai Won Se. the deputy confessed to the crime but no one was accepting any of it as he acted to save the lady.

Soon it was agreed that the sheriff be buried, and Weaver would be the new sheriff. Weaver admitted that he could not read or write so he couldn't be the sheriff but Miss Ellie volunteered to help him with paperwork until the town folks could find some deputies for him.

It was late at night when the new sheriff got a chance to deal with Jimmy. He unlocked the cell. "Listen Son, you are free to go. truth is, I never finished the paperwork anyway. Go, do what you have to do."

"Thank you deputy. Sorry. Sheriff."

"Oh don't worry. I ain't to used to it either."

"Listen, I believe the sheriff was wearing my suit when you ...umm..."

"Huh? Oh right. Shoot! You can't run around in those orange overalls. Listen, he kept a few suits and sundries in the closet over there - help yourself. Obviously you were close in size"

"Thanks, and my gun? Dangerous world out there."

"Oh yeah! I'll get your personal effects. they are in the back so go ahead and get changed."

Jimmy walked over to the closet and drew out a nice shirt, vest and pants and slipped them on. As he did, he watched for Weaver to come back. In the few moments alone he helped himself to some items in the sheriff's desk and then closed the drawer.

"Here you go," Weaver came back in and handed him a large manilla envelope. He found his gun, the magazine for it, and his wallet - now empty of cash. "Sorry about the money but Arness spent it all" he said apologetically and then handed Jimmy Two $20 credits. "Least I could do."

Jimmy smiled, "You are truly the most decent man on this planet."

"Well, we shall see about that."

Jimmy left the sheriff station a free man. He thought of going home but what was the point? Mom and Dad were dead, the funds were lost to him and he was on his own in a strange world. Once he would have been frightened but right now, he never had such a clear path before him.

He wandered towards the docks, but to the more expensive hotels that cater to travellers that have to stop over. The saloon was going full tilt and it wasn't long before he found who he was looking for - a man with cash and not much sense. He followed the man as he strolled outside for a smoke and pinned the sheriff's badge on his own vest as he approached.

"Excuse me sir?" Jimmy said

The man turned around nervously but saw the badge and relaxed, "Yes Sheriff. You are awfully young for a sheriff aren't you?"

"Yes, but I am a fast study. Would you mind following me sir? it is a matter of some urgency and I need your help."

"Of course. How can I help a fine lawman like yourself." he asked following Jimmy into the back alley.

"It seems that this gun has too many bullets." Jimmy said plainly and drew his gun out.

The newtech gun was as silent as the ads promised. The delivery of the shots to the man's face and body was like a whisper and the dead man dropped quickly. Jimmy drew out the man's wallet, grabbed the credits and returned the billfold to the dead man. He put the cash into his own pocket, removed the badge and then calmly walked across town to another saloon. A cheap looking joint that offered the baser comfort in life.

"What can I get ya?" The barkeep

" A room and a woman to go with it. Your best of both if you don't mind." Jimmy laid down a 100 credit note on the table.

"Whoa! For that you can have Bella for the entire night."

"How much forever?" Jimmy put down another two of the same bills.

"Come again?"

"How much to own Bella?"

"Hey now, she is my best ..." the barkeeper watched as Jimmy put down two more. "Bella! Come here"

A buxom brunette who was still in her youth and had an energy about her came over. "What is up?"

"This man just bought your contract. You are working for him now."

Bella looked Jimmy over and smiled prettily, "Well you aren't hard on the eyes honey."

Jimmy smiled and lead her up to the room. There he looked he over and nodded with approval. "Yes you will do fine."

"You got plans for me Honey?"

Oh yes. But first two things. One, call me James. The other is you, are now Willow. Bella was your old life, and we are starting anew. Beyond that, do whatever I ask and we will be just fine."

Subject: I figured


I knew everyone loves Ma so don't worry. Just checking.

The "free" chance to change your character was the character skills assets and complications, not equipment. So if Wolf wants to buy a Decker shotgun and get it modified, I am sure there are ways. The gun costs 90 cr and mods would run probably another 30 or so. Of course you couldn't buy it officially as you have a criminal record so you have to look black market so the price could be double that. Beaumonde has lots of people willing to sell though. Maybe Willow would like to visit Dodger and ask him.

I added Ma as an NPC back when we started as you had only five crew and I wanted you to be able to leave someone behind on the ship. You now have a 7 man crew so perhaps Ma should be written out? Or is she really part of the whole Rocinante experience.

BTW - Celeste and Loki. You should read Trish's write up and decide how your character would react to her.

The books keeps ammo very simple for a reason.

In the S&S book there is armour piercing, explosive and depleted uranium listed. All three are labelled as highly illegal, dangerous on a ship, and very expensive. Regular shotgun ammo is plenty deadly my friend. You don't need to have mucho maxxum super deadly hyper hollow botox ammo.

New topic!!!

Sleeping arrangements! Check out the floorplan of the ship and please work out who is sleeping where. I believe the Captain has a double near cockpit, Sam had the single closest to same, Willow had a double at the back with the guest quarters as she needed closet space. Not sure where Ash and Wolf are.... but assume in the crew quarters.

Anyway - please sort out.

Depends on where you are in the verse. Beaumonde obviously has its seedier side with thugs carrying automatic weapons. Ariel - not so much.

I let the guns slide at the start and during this campaign but as the GM I am stating clearly - if you overdo the weapons expect a peck of trouble. Explosive rounds? Must be a Dust Devil looking to kill alliance citizens, why waste a trial Sarge?

Subject: Frag what?


Tann - just use the ammo in the books. What you are suggesting using would be highly illegal, dangerous to use on a ship and frankly very very expensive.

The "gun" thing here is getting out of hand in my opinion. You are flying in a tramp freighter which is gonna be boarded by alliance patrols. If they saw that many weapons or ammo stored, you all be bound by law fast. Not counting the movie which was overdone, in the series the crew stuck to pistols, rifles, shotguns and one assault rifle (Vera).

Subject: plates and mates


There is a plate vest in the book. It is basically a ballistic vest that has been modified with an extra plate in front and back. The important part about this is I found out I was doing Ballistic vests completely wrong. Haha... Umm. Yeah. Sorry about that. I was subtracting the -1W but not converting the wounds to stun, which would have changed some outcomes (Wolf and Luke so it balances out). I am sorry about that. One thing to note about the plate vest is it brings your agility down one or two steps so that would effect dodge, shooting, running, climbing etc etc.

The last campaign really did not require a lot of covert. The next one, well covert will be an asset, let me tell you.

Those of you who have submitted changes to character, bear with me I will have time to look at them later on. I need to post the remaining loose end tie ups first.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: not sure why this is an issue


Loki's character I accepted into the game and into the crew because he has a lot of skills that cross over. My reasons being - what if someone is injured badly? Take the ending of the last campaign - what if Brigit attacked Willow first? What if Wolf was killed and had to be revived and required extended care? Suddenly you have no mechanic or medic (or pilot or whatever) and you could be in a world of hurt. So I figured that Wyatt would be thinking about that and thinking a pilot with medical expertise, plus tech and mech couldn't hurt to cover if someone is hurt. Which is incidently what role Bowman was gonna play. So officially John Ryan is the tech guy, Tess is the pilot and Wolf is the mechanic but it never hurts to have an extra set of hands in the engine room as the repair scene in the last adventure showed.

t know much on guns. Our most cherished right is to bear breasts ( I kid you not)

I am all for changing skills, assets, and complications to better suit the character you are playing. so take advantage of the one time offer. I know Willow will be switchin gsome of her's too.

No intrusion at all Teller. Nice to know people are enjoying this series. It will continue with the next adventure, once new crew are on board.
