simple

Or it could be that Roger was typing one handed with a squirmy babe in the other arm and made a typo?

You guys are lucky to get coherent adult conversation from me these days.

Typos?

Do we still make those?

I thought the invention of White Out took care of all that... don't tell me I've been drinking a bottle of the stuff per day for the past 25 years for nothin'!

nice post

I hate making typos actually but too tired lately to double check everything.

Nice post Eol. Can't wait for the calvary to arrive, assuming that they will arrive.

Thanks...

...once I slapped the 'he'p me' call together, the rest just kind of fell into place around it.

I can't wait for the calvary, either... 'specially since I can't seem to keep a character conscious during combat in one of your games.

Yes.

I have noticed that. Oh well. Keep positive and remember, no matter how bad it seems, I can make it a lot worse.


Wait a minute - that's not as positive as I was intending.

No matter how bad it seems, it isn't the worse that I came up with first.

Hmmmmmm.... Maybe I will stop trying to inspire confidence now.

At least you're not fully unconscious here! Just dazed and confused but still cognitive of the situation you are in.

I am not thrilled with the rules on this though. You have a survival roll to avoid it, but then, shouldn't you have had a resistance roll. The open ended rules of Serenity cause me to make judgements and then afterwards I find something that makes me question them.

I wonder if they refined the rules at all in the Battlestar system?

P.S. I am positive... positive that Sam ain't gonna be a happy camper in the next few posts.

nice to know

The Serenity Rules have gone through a fourth printing. But no new source material available.

Need to flip through the BSG game.

questions

How far from Roc to the bank, and would Wyatt know? Also what's the law against taking Roc down the street?

Now that I would love to see!!

Talk about the cavalry to the rescue the whole D**n ship coming to the bank . If I were the bad guys that would scare the S**t outta me.

So is the Roc armed??

Ship vs mule

Well, Frisco is lawless right now. However, the port authority where you are parked is technically under Alliance authority.

To move Roc, you would have to warm up the engines, which have been sitting cold for half a day now. You would need approval from PA to take off which means filing a flight plan, all which takes up valuable time.

You could just take off but that would be a violation of code and would almost definitely bring down an alliance patrol from one of the ships above. Furthermore, you could guarantee that Roc would be port locked next time it lands.

Furthermore, if you did warm up the engines, take off and zip to the bank, you would have the problem of where to land, the damage that hovering close too the ground around so many wooden buildings may cause and the structural damage of the jet wind.

The bank is 1000 feet away, give or take. The Hover Mule you have goes 60 mph, accelerates real fast like and requires no authority to leave the cargo bay. There are 5280 feet in a mile, and 60 mpg is 1 mile per minute.

So in my estimation, the hover mule could be there and back again twice before Roc got into the air.

Now I will give you that a Hover Mule is not as impressive as a transport ship with no weapons coming in and destroying a part of town with its engines to save your man. It depends on what kind of impression you want to make on the town folk.

Your choice really.

BTW - I am working on one of my patented crude maps for the bank.

Not as impressive: war horse vs. mule

Ku.

I was envisioning the scene where Wash stands Serenity off against those Mal picked a fight with. Oh well. We'll just have to use the mule I suppose.

Same scene

I was thinking the same scene and was in love withn it too, but he was flying off the edge of the cliff, not over a town.

Now, for a moment I thought you might have no ione with planetary vehicle skills, but Wolf does know how to drive as does Asher.

There should be some sort of intro to the crew with Fenris.
