Sometimes I feel like I've always been here, alone in the dark for a long time until Olan turned on the lights.

Topic: Robin Hood and Friar Tuck, Zombie Killers
Subject: Will power!


"What sorcery is this? Tuck?" Will cries out as he draws his sword from its sheath. For in all of England, no man could beat Robin as a bowman, Tuck as a quarterstaff wielder and Will Scarlett as a swordsman.

The Merry man leaps forward and stikes a mighty blow to the shoulder of the corpse woman attacking his friend. His balde splits bone and fleash with ease but the creature only is taken aback - and then moves on to attack again. The young man with a limp moves to flank him from behind.

"I will be no man's dinner, be he dead or alive!" cries Will and he swings a backhand blow at the monster that cuts clear through his neak and separates head from body. The dead man falls, staying down and remaining still as a good body should.

"Tuck! The head! they can not survive death without it!" Armed with this knowledge, Will fends off the newly arrive woman attacker with blade in hand and an eye for throat.

Subject: really


If you have a point to raise about a post of mine, it would be best put into a PM, not the public forum.

But since we are here -

What you write in your post is what you hope happens, not what necessarily happens. You may have intended for the sheriff not to hear you but maybe he made his hearing check, or maybe he reads lips, or maybe he didn't hear you but guessed based on your body language, or maybe he didn't hear you at all and is basing his comments on Sam's, Blake's and/or Wyatt's reaction. It may be a bluff and not about you at all. I'm not going to say because in this situation, you do not know. I play my NPC's as near as I can to real, so they make mistake (buying ham hocks) and sometimes they are damn lucky (natural 20!) but just like real life, you may intend one thing but another thing happens.

In the future, if you'd like to question the validity of my posts, I'd appreciate the courtesy of making it a PM.

Subject: Cognitive dissonance anyone?


OOC – I left Sam out of this as I need to know where he is going. I will PM with Robert on this

Newhouse, Beylix, Outside Jailhouse, 12:45 pm, Day Three

“This ain’t right Sam, I don’t like it one bit. We need to disarm Pearson and find out wtf is going on before we let him step foot of the ship”

“Tze sah ju yi (suicidal idea), puhn yoh, no matter how much I might be inclined ta agree... even if we did manage ta not get shot down, there’s too many innocent folk around... can’t have none o’ them gettin’ tangled up in our mi tian gohn, get me?”

“I don’t care, this ain’t right”

“Yo niou-se, you might want to rethink your travel plans, space flight these days is so very risky.”

“If we’s bein’ forced ta ferry this Pearson piece o’ sh** back ta the boat, Cap, I reckon I’ll walk my own self if that’s ku by you. If I don’t, I’m like ta bao xin jiu huo, get me?”

"Let's git on back to the ship, Gentlemen."

“Well now!” the sheriff drawled, “I’m hearing some threatening language to a law man here. That isn’t very civil considering I released your friend here as payment for his safe passage. Before you get any ideas in your little heads about revenge and retribution let me tell you, if I don’t get a wave from Luke every 24 hours telling me he’s being treated goodly, I’d have to assume the worst. Put out an arrest warrant to the cortex for y’all, and make sure I told all my friends in the verse that you people have a tendency to kill clients. Even if you avoid the law, how much work you gonna get with that reputation?”

“Wait just a minute!” John Blake glares at the sheriff, “Captain Wyatt is a good decent man, unlike you sir. He would never stoop to your level.”

“My level!” Sheriff growls indignant, “I do have two guns here. So you better watch your mouth.”

Luke steps forward, “Whoa! Listen. I’m a lawman. I follow the law of the land. You have to talk tough when you are in my shoes but I am deeply sorry for the death of your friend. He was running, he didn’t stop and as you heard the sheriff, I did what he felt was right. Now if you have other ways and laws in Frisco, I’ll follow them to the letter I assure you. I wish that Mr. Sloat here had just stopped running when I told him to, especially for nothing but ballots.”

“He’s right” Sherman says to John, ‘Chad should have stopped. He’s been acting twitchy since we left. And we can plainly see that the sheriff here is heavy handed.”

“Excuse ME! Keep the commentary to yourself!”

“We came all this way for a Sheriff John,” Fiddler said, “and spent a lot of platinum. I think Chad did himself in by acting strange and running. Let’s go over the rules and laws with Mr. Pearson on the way back and make sure he knows what we expect.”

Mr. Blake is obviously not thrilled by his companions’ mercantile attitude but he does agree with them, “Right. Let’s take Chad home then. Mr. Pearson. First order of business, you don’t shoot anyone unless they are holding a gun or knife on you.”

“Yes Sir.” Pearson agrees, “Captain Wyatt, if you want me to hand over my irons now and you hold them for the length of the journey, I accept that your word is law on your ship.”

Newhouse, Beylix, Behind Emmett’s Bar – heading to Spaceport, 12:45, Day Three

Tell me, how did such a sorry bit of tin become sheriff here, anyway? Nobody else showed up for the interview?”

“Well, you ain’t far from the truth there. See, Newhouse was founded by a man named JW McClarrin. Now JW started the smelting after the war and it brought a lot of people jobs when they needed them. But he struck it big in some mine and left Newhouse just as it started to get big. So the merchants decided they had to have a council and the council decided that they needed a sheriff. Up to that point, Ken Weaver did the law and order thing and people were happy with him. Ken is polite, always respectful but knows when things have to be done, even if he don’t like doing them. But the council brought Arness in, he was a friend of someone, on the basis that Ken didn’t read or write too well and had a hearing problem. Funny – no one really noticed it interfering before. Anyway soon after the council took to taking three month vacations and Arness took to keeping their case log clean.”

Benny directs Willow to a side alley between the buildings, “So Arness sets up the whole protection scam, which wasn’t bad at first because he wasn’t greedy. But then the Tong came into Newhouse and things got ugly –fast. So Arness gets this deputy Luke Pearson to come help him. Except Luke is real fast at killing people which cleans the case log clean but isn’t what people expected. Oh there’s always a reason or some sort of just cause but he churned most the Tong into a grave in a fortnight. Tough guy too – once the Tong caught him with 6 guys using machetes and Luke was outta ammo. In the end, Luke barely had a scratch and Mortie had six more caskets on order.

“Well, the whole situation unhinged Arness. He started getting demanding about more protection money, and forcing every women he could to pay him on their backside. He rides Darla more often than … well a lot. All the while Luke has everyone running scared. Ken does what he can but he’s outmatched so he plays dumb for survival. Think I’ll use the money you give me to get off this rock, maybe find work elsewhere.”

Subject: let's see the bodies


Besides people who have left the game, how many have I killed? I count 1, and Jal was a tragic character who could only end up dying dramatically.

Really - I get tired of being called a player killer when I seriously do all that I can to avoid killing them.

Subject: char and characters


I have Char - thank you. Flynn as well.

I'm a single father all this week so my time is limited. When I have a moment to myself, I will go over the characters. I know I did Arien, Max, Adrian and Kilgim and I know I sent out queries about addition Wp and NWp as Bob gave me a response. Perhaps I didn't send all out that I thought I did....

I need to post to Rocinante and get this character issue resolved before I can post to CWWLLO.

a brief note - When you post please include the small details: sword out or sheathed? Moving to the left? Right? Centre? Shadowing Arien? Clinging to the shadows? Specifics are vital in this game.

Serenity Rules here!

Copy and paste the above for the serenity rules.

Historical accuracy? Don't get hung up on it. As I said in my opening thread, I am basing this on hollywood WWII more than history.

Do not equip your characters beyond personal items. You jumped out of a plane in a hurry so equipment will be scarce.

Give me a chance to post more details. I'm a single father all this week so mt time is limited.

Has everyone recieved their official updated character? before we go slicing and dicing I figure it would be nice to have sharp instruments.

Topic: WWII Horror
Subject: okay


So we have

Almerin - Captain (?)
Tann - Sarge
Yeolde - Corp
San-Siro - Corp
Dreen - Private

What I need is someone to play the Femme Fatale they meet up with shortly into the mission.

To get a idea of the Cortex rules, look to my "Looking for browncoats" thread in recuitment. That is a Serenity based sci-fi system but it is a start on the stats, the assets and complications and the skills. I will post more details later. Right now, get an idea of what character you want to play, how old, personality, what lead him to be on the mission, who's back home waiting for him, etc etc.
