Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Gator's bait


“Get the hell outta my pilot’s chair.” Wyatt said in a tone that was colder than ice and twice as deadly.

Gator raised his hands off the controls and started to stand, "Hey dude? You said impress you. I turn this thing on a dime and now you are...."

*BIFF*

Tess reached up and punched Gator in the face, without warning or the mere sign that she was going. As the tall man reeled backwards, Asher came storming into the room with John Ryan shortly behind him. Blood poured freely from Gator's nose as he caterwauled like an injured kitten, "Ow! She hit me! Did you see that! You want that driving your boat? She hit me! By Buddha's pink pony, she hit me!"

Asher grabbed the tall man by his collar and unceremoniously hauled him up and pushed him out the cockpit door. He nodded his approval at the young lady on his way out the door. John watched them go and said out loud, "“Chuan Zung, the steep ascent threw the grav-dampener out, it couldn’t compensate so we lost a-grav for a bit.”

(assuming a "figured as much. gonna land so Wolf can check things out and we can go again. You'll get your chance")

“Dun da bao tian.” John said before turning back to the captain to make a request in his normal, professional, tone “I’d like to check avionics, gčng hǎo de ānquán bǐ yíhŕn.”

(assuming a "go ahead but get back up here soon if you want your chance to try out")

In the hallway between cockpit and galley, Asher tried to get Gator to go down into a bunk area but the tall man was having none of it.

“You just cool your jets in there for the rest of the flight, if have you have any smarts you won’t show your face until we land. It’s a long fall from where you brought us and the Capt’n is ready see if you can fly back without us. ”Asher said evenly

"Come on Dude! This ain't no pleasure cruise. You dodging the man and you can't baby the engines because the mechanic doesn't want to do work. Mechs always baby the machines but flying a firefly is a lot like dealing with a woman. It is fine to wine and dine them a bit but sometime you have to push them to their limits and ride them hard or they won't respect you dude."

Ash's eyebrows rose at that comment and Gator heard someone clear their throat behind him. He turned to see two ladies, one was a hot asian chick in a Sari and the other, an ugly one that might have be her mother.

"Hey ladies. I was just ...."

*BASH*

Trish brought the butt of her shotgun up and hard into Gator's already wounded face. He reeled back and with his height being what it was spun and clocked his head on the rafters above before crumpling down to the floor unconscious. Trish looked at Asher and made a sign at him with her hand - a lifting motion that turned into a finger pointing to the cargo bay. It was the same sign she gave him whenever it was his turn to empty the trash.

Wyatt brought Rocinante down to the field that they were in before. It did not take long for Wolf and John to reset the relays and check the systems - no more than fifteen minutes. Just enough time for Asher to pick Gator out of the ship and dump him in the long grass by the landing area. With any luck, he'd wake up before a robot harvester came by.

Wyatt turned the controls over to Tess as john came up to the cockpit to take his turn afterwards. With any luck, this young lady wouldn't pull the same stunts but Wyatt had a good feeling about her. The others settled back into the ship as Tess began the take off sequence.

No problems or need to apologize Bro, life does have a habit of getting in the way of plans. If you can post today great, but if not I will leave you to backpost. I won't be posting until tonight (EST) anyway.

All the posts and interactions have been great so far and I appreciate the level of participation. My next post may seem a bit vague and general but Celeste will actually be providing the "meat" of the action as she has been told what will happen next and will put it in her post after mine.

My only hesitation in what Ody wrote was the putting Gator in a room. My thoughts are Wyatt would want him off the ship ASAP. So I am more think if having the ship land, toss Gator and then Tess takes over.

Subject: that would sound like wisdom except


thta everyone standing around waiting for someone else to post is a lot like doing nothing.

As when I post you can assume certain actions will be met by other players. So you put that down in brackets and move along. I promise I will sort it out in my post if I need to.

For Example:

"Hi Captain. This is John. He is gonna help me rewire the electrical system for free"

(assuming Wyatt says yes)

John and I head down to the engine room....


If Bromern post that he draws and shoots John in the head, then it is up to me to sort out the details.

So less waiting and more posting please or I will post on Sunday and I will assume what is being done by your characters.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: the past and pass


I think that the alliance vs Browncoat can make for interesting character development and story. Consider that John Ryan did medical evac so basically nevered fired a shot vs Tesss in hard combat. Two completely different world views that might be at odds but might learn from each other as well. The important part (for the plot points) is the balance of conflict and resolution you play. Anyone can play conflict, heard to roleplay accepting that your world view isn;t the only one that is right.

Hoping to move this along by Sunday. So please, post them if you got them!

I like the lead in. Works well. When Gator is "rejected", Tess might think she has the job but then would still have to audition and compete with John.

So we have a nice long weekend coming so I hope to see posts from everyone and then I can move things along.

I think the Doctor is a acquired taste. I watched the fourth doctor as a kid and think of all others as frauds. So you are safe on this island.

Yay to Supernatural and Burn Notice. Not familiar wIth Eureka.

I love Sherlock Holmes from the books and hold Jeremy Brett as the best Holmes closest to the source. But I have enjoyed the new versions in theatre and his new bbc series.

Subject: Done done and done


Excellent posts all around. Thanks to everyone. Robert, you truly outdo yourself.

Just a note on the ship and the "damage". Nothing is major, in fact it is very minor as relays can be reset, the GD can be easily realigned. Not that it is something to be overlooked, they should not be pushed like that in normal use but it won't take a lot of time.

As to posting. I won't be updating the game until next weekend so you have time for backposts and story telling. My week is a busy one so don't expect to see me much except at night. Please keep up the great posting though cause I love to read it.

Yardiff Bey was walking to the pool with his eye on a particularly gorgeous lady in a string bikini when all the suddenly ....


*WHHHOOOSHHHH*


A transport ship buzzed over his compound at a breakneck speed and sent tables, chairs and guests flying. The wind generated from the thing almost put out his firepit! He was trying to calm down his guests when the gorram BUN tyen-shung duh ee-DWAY-RO flew pass again. This time the draft hauled half of the water out of the pool and dumped it directly on Yuri and his A-list clients.

“What’s going down Yari?”

“It’s the Feds!”

“I’m all wet!”

“We gotta get out of here!”

“No!” Yari called out and raised his arms. “Please, relax. I will deal with this. Trust me!” He walked around assuring everyone that things were okay and that he would take care of the situation. He snapped his fingers at the women and servants to make sure people had distractions from this disaster. He had no idea who it was that flew by but they would not be allowed to ruin his day. No one ruins Yardiff Bey’s Party.

He activated the communicator on his multiband and signaled his men in the hanger. “Boys! Get the Angel in the air. Find the Ching-wah TSAO duh liou mahng in that gorram Go tsao de transport and take them down. I don’t want enough of them left to do a DNA trace. Take everything!!!!! Dohn Ma??

Subject: Gator later


Gator is pulling rapid shifts in a ship without communicating with the mechanic and having no rapport or knowledge of what the ship can handle. He is flying hard with no love or appreciation of the vehicle. Simply put, he is hotdogging on a first date.

Tess can do much better for sure because she has respect and love for the ship even never have flown it before. She'd have "felt" the first relay blow, probably did as Gator was flying.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Beaumonde, Baker's Gully, 3:00 PM PT.


OOC: Before you start reading, think of where your character would be during a flight audition and how they will react to what is happening. I assume Wolf and John will be in the engine room. Trish is in the Galley. Wyatt, Tess and Gator are in the cockpit. Asher and Willow? In your rooms perhaps?


Wyatt set Rocinante down in a field. Some locals told him this would be a good place to do a flight test and not bother anyone. Baker’s Gully apparently was owned by a farmer who used robotic cultivators so no workers or prying eyes watching. Nothing but corn fields and sunflowers for as far as the eye could see.

After a brief “impress me” talk and a warning that they if they scratched Rocinante they would be leaving and if they damaged her they’d be leaving by the airlock, Gator was first up to try out. The electrical problems that were plaguing the ship had subsided now, as Wolf had found a guy who knew something about the tech problem. Wyatt appreciated that Wolf knew when he need help and wasn’t afraid to ask. Some mechanics would keep saying they got it covered as the ship fell from the sky. Anyway, this John Ryan was on board and still working with Wolf on making sure the problem didn’t come back. John was here to try for pilot as well and Wyatt would give the man a chance afterwards.

Gator was the first to take the controls. The tall man moved into the pilot chair with ease and started the usual per-flight initiatives with ease. The ship lifted off the ground, hovering under the power of the side engines. Gator flipped the comm. button for the engine room.

“Wolf dude! Let’s get ready to rumble!!!!” Gator called out to the engine room.

(assuming a response of “huh”, “what”, or “Don’t call me dude”)

Gator pushed the power level up and rotated the thrusters. The ship fell a number of feet and then took off across the sky at a high speed.

“Weeyooo!” Gator cried out as he dipped the ship down close to the ground and the crops as if to show how close he could skim the ground. He then did a hard turn and buzzed over a small valley before rapidly shutting down the starboard engine, causing the ship to spin, but then re-engaging to straighten out and buzz the valley again. He then banked around again over the valley, doing a barrel roll with Rocinante and then move into a steep climb into the black.

In the engine room, Wolf and John watched as multiple relays blew one after another due to the strain of the sudden speed. Unable to do anything except reset the circuits , the two men sscrabble to keep the engines from seizing up. Then the rapid ascension threw the new Grav Dampener out of alignment and it struggled to adjust. Throughout the ship, people were tossed around as artificial gravity was lost for a few moments. John and Wolf are tossed like rag dolls across the engine room and struggle to not be thrown clear across the ship. From the Galley came an awful noise and the stock pot that Trish was using to make soup came crashing to the floor, spilling soup and protein nuggets everywhere.

As the ship enters the black, barely out of atmo, Gator puts the engines into hard burn. The sound that the crew was used to hearing, like a horse galloping the length of the ship, began as always but this time it wasn’t running like a spirited horse enjoying the freedom of a pasture. This time, it sounded like it was running scared and all hell was chasing.

(assuming that Wyatt will end the audition at this point, either with or without violence. As soon as the ship stabilizes, Trish will be heading up to the cockpit with shotgun in hand and death in her eyes.)

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


What I have suggested with Destiny is this. The Bounty Hunter entered the ship via the Shuttle and Jason was killed by him quickly. Ken attempted to take him out but was killed as well. The Killer was looking for that Companion's med card and didn't care how he got it. Jon attempted to engage him but Tess and Stephanie pulled you away as it was suicide (maybe Steph had to drug Jon).

Grace got the med Card and lead the BH on a merry chase through the ship. Never realizing that she was drawing him into a trap, Grace waited for Tess, Stephanie and Jon to escape in the shuttle then lead the assassin to the engine room where she rigged the engine to explode.

Watching from the shuttle, the three of you thought that Grace died in the fiery explosion. Actually she triggered the explosion remotely as she put on a suit and stole the Bounty Hunter's ship.

Grace would not leave Destiny behind so she was attempting to tow it with the small interceptor ship when the Feds you met on Greenleaf found her. Grace made a deal with them to give them the wine/diamond so they could close their case and she got immunity and a tow to Beylix.

As soon as she got there, she took "her" share of diamonds (Not like Sanders counted them), sold them and got to fixing the engines. Very difficult as many parts have to be retooled. She also wants to lie low for awhile because as long as Higgin's thinks the ship was destroyed, he won't come looking. Grace plans on repairing the ship then contacting the Companion's guild with the med-card to make a deal to get Higgin's off your tail.

Jon, Stephanie and Tess spend several days in the shuttle before you were found and brought home. Jon and Stephanie have discovered each others love and are exploring that now as they wait to hear from Grace. It will probably take a couple of years before Jon feels the need to fly and Destiny is spaceworthy again, but the time will come.

I never mind clarifying what is going on in the story. A simple mis-type can cause a whole lot of confusion and delay. If I ask "are you busty?" instead of "are you busy?" and the whole meaning changes.
