Here is a map of the temple you are in, so you don;t have to search around for it. Arrows on stairs show incline.


Good time to get organized, heal up and decide on a direction.

Topic: Castle Rautenberg Q n A
Subject: My apologies

Way too long for me to post. Sorry about that.

Good time to start thinking of a plan to get to rauntenberg castle. You have a four seater car with SS marking now. I will post a list of what you find in the cabin but there are at least two SS uniforms (one full dress, one field) in a closet.

Subject: Way too long

OOC: Sorry for how long it took to post this short entry. Life is hectic during the holidays. This will be my last post until after xmas but since I am off during the last week of december, I hope to post then. I will also give Vanadia the chance to post as well.

There were no back entrances to the cabin that Jack could spot. Nothing really to see behind the cabin, the Medic quickly made his way around to the front to report to the captain.

McGuiness stayed in his perch and watched through his scope, keeping an eye and ear open for any possible movement outside the cabin.

" Sind Sie Englisch oder Amerikaner? Amerikaner, glaube ich. Was tun Sie hier? Ich wünsche keine Mühe. "( Are you English or American? American, I believe. What are you doing here? I do not want any trouble) the young lady said to Romo as she laid the crossbow down to show her non-hostile intent.

Brutal did a quick recon of the cabin and came back to the common room quickly. “She appears to be alone,” he said then glanced at the body laying at his feet, “Now!”

The Captain moved closer to look at her. Not considering the language difference he says to her, ‘“Look lady, we don’t want any trouble... scratch that... we do want trouble, but just not with you. We need to find Castle Rautenberg. Do you know where it is?” He realizes the error and turns his head to ask room to translate but as he does, he notices within in her eyes understanding of what he is saying.

Pekka obviously missed the memo that said if the DM offers you a branch, take it!

No potion of Pepto Bismol in the pack. Luckily, I don't believe in the "save or die" scenario. Save or turn into invunerable were-spider-undead-creature is another story.

Subject: wrong word prehaps

I don't mean that the space station is your home. I was thinking a place to where you could feel safe docked. In the episode "The Message", the Serenity crew had a place to pick up their mail. The appearance was of a depot where you could also get drinks as well - that is all I was thinking of - Rocinante is your home, not doubts there.

Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: comm and chess

Willow could do either with the comm, I will have to check with vanadia on that.

The chess piece - The piece is basically similar to a USB drive embedded in a polymer chess piece. It is an electronic key for something that would require the code within the key as well as the key itself. Andrew could try to use his tech skills to find out the code and if there is anything of note on the data storage.

BTW - I am thinking of the future of this game and other adventures. Would like to establish a "home" base for Rocinante - a place where you'd have your mail and post, get messages and pick up jobs. I am working on a space station near an outer planet - The Zhongli Lingtu (Neutral Ground). It is an old alliance station that was abandoned after the war, picked up by a businessman named Mortimer (Morty) Black. he runs it for retail, real estate and docking fees (Think DS9 bought by Donald Trump). It would have a number of bars, places to stay, 12 atmo emclosed repair bays from small transports, 8 bays for mid-size, 4 bays for large. A parts shop called the Junkyard Dog. All walks of life for the dirt poor to the well off would pass through, though mostly the inbetween.

The idea I have is you are known to Morty and you have an arrangement where you dock for free in exchange for Willow providing medical services while she is there. They don't many doctors out that way. It is very hush-hush as Morty has a rep for being a shrewd operator with no concern for anyone but himself, but secretly he puts up a lot of people running from the law or who don't want to be found. Willow often finds herself helping sick families on the run, or wounded deserters.

Any thoughts?

You rolled what die? What did you have to roll? High or low? Was this a saving throw or a fortitude check?

"Do you want fries with that sir?"
"I don't know, let me roll a die."

Actually no. There will be no reavers in this campaign. I am planning out the next three though and realized I have to throw them at you sooner or later. As I said before, wandering monsters in serenity are

1. Reavers
2. Reavers
3. Reavers
4. More Reavers
5. Companions
6. Reaver-Companions

based on your character's history and the general feel you have for them...

How familiar with Reavers would you say your characters are? I'm thinking that maybe Wyatt has had experience but no one else.

What say you?

I have chatted with Oddyson about taking over the role of Asher in the game. I felt that Oddy showed a real appitude for the character in Rautenberg and asked him if he was interested. He is working on going through the history and the firefly episodes.

We are close to the end of this campaign. I am working on the next on in my head and I hopes to have it ready for a soon transistion over.

People post what they think they are doing and I will post what actually happens. Order is based on initiative rolls. For all you know, Greta has killed Brutal and the Sarge before they even spoke, and is now seducing the Doctor.

The history of Ma is not a secret. Willow, Wyatt or Sam would have told you eventually.

The conversation started by Bowman with Wyatt will take place in the late "Morning" on day six of the journey. I will use it as tie into something so please, post where you think your character may be at that time.

Don't get all twitchy!

Subject: take my love, take my land

Newhouse, Beylix, Outside Rocinante’s Cargo Bay, 2:20 pm, Day Three

"The amount we agreed upon, Benny," Willow began," and I hope enough to turn your luck around. Can I send you a wave by way of Darla's? I may want to catch up with you after this - see how you're doing."

“Ummm.... Sure, for the next few days at least. Might try my luck elsewhere.” Benny says as he opens the purse and gives a precursory look at the coinage. He pulls out the piece and goes to hand it over but he hesitates for a moment, looking at the piece long and hard like he is trying to determine something about it. Afetr a moment or two he hands it over to Willow. “Listen, Miss Willow. If you were anyone else I’d be off and running but ...well no one has treated me like a person in so long.” He looks all around to see if anyone is watching. “I tried to sell this piece about a year ago on Beaumonte. Some Tongs were offering a goodly amount, not like this but I was really in bad straits then. Anyway, long and short of it, is they gave me half and I went to get the piece, but when I returned – they were all dead. Someone or someones had killed them all, and they weren’t a weak bunch. So between them and your friend with the gun at the bar, I want you to be sure you want this. I’d sooner give you the money back and drink myself to death than think harm would come to you by my hand.”

(assuming Willow will still take piece, some conversation here)

Benny nods and pockets the purse. “Well you are gonna be on that ship in the black and you got plenty of folk to watch over you so, good Luck to you. At least, better luck than the piece ever brought to me.”

Breaking Atmo, Beylix, 4:00 pm Day Three to Day Six 9:00 am

Wolf arrived through the cargo bay door a few minutes before the fuelling ended, looking particularly pleased with himself and about as relaxed as anyone has seen him. He carries something in his hand when he comes in but he doesn’t share what it is with anyone. (300 Credits for the fuel, docking fee, septic flush and fresh water. Should be higher but SPA only bills you for the fuel.)

As soon as the clearance is received from the tower, Sam has Rocinante in the air like the proverbial bat out of hell. The engines are running smooth and the ship breaks atmo without a hitch. Soon afterwards, Sam plots a course and pushes the engine into full burn. As always, there is a brief moment of silent, and then the sound, so much like a horse in full gallop travels across Rocinante from stern to bow. Back into the black again, the crew returns to the life they live off the planets and the passengers re-familiarize themselves with the routine.

There is an initial amount of excitement when Willow returns to her medical bay to find a dead body awaiting her there. Seems in all the hustle and bustle of the day, no one mentioned poor Chad to the doctor. (feel free to play that out)

Pearson keeps to his word and keeps to himself and the passengers for the journey. He makes a brief attempt to help out around the ship but receives cold shoulders and glares so he stops after a short time. The townfolks have many meetings with him to determine the proper “whattodo” and “wherefors”, and he seems quite cordial about their rules and guidelines.

The crew get a chance to meet the newcomer and talk a bit to get to know each other. Trish seems to take a shine to Andrew which is always a good thing. Andrew knows computers and electrical systems well so Wolf and he get along and even work together on a few redundancy systems on the trip but the engines run well for the journey to the Regina and there are no incidents.

The daily waves between Pearson and the sheriff plus Blake and his son go off well and all parties seem placated if not pleased with the situation. Jimmy whines and moans a lot and keeps begging for his dad to rescue him but the banker holds firm on his resolve.

Come to Regina and the blockade is not only there, but a new battle cruiser has appear (the Sheldon Cooper). A wave from Asher warns that there are quite a few alliance patrols on “shore leave” in town and best if you keep a wide berth.

As planned, at 9 am on the sixth day of your journey, the townsfolk load into the shuttle with Pearson and the body of Chad. Asher is contacted to watch for the shuttle and Wyatt and Sam give him a terse rundown of the situation and their thoughts on Pearson. Asher promises to keep an eye on things and not let his guard down.

The shuttle departs and the once again Rocinante is yours and yours alone. Sam plots a course for the Lullabelle Mine on the Angel Hair comet and you begin what is hoped to be the profitable side of this journey. Not to mention a chance to see Kora again.

OOC: This is a chance to get to know everyone and for everyone to get up to speed on everyone’s plotlines. Feel free to back post the conversations and stories.
