Why is it...

that when I step out for a day or two, y'all get itchy and start typing up a whirlwind, and I'm left catching my breath.

Anyway... I agree, cool characters everyone.

I'm pretty much humped today and gone for the weekend. Monday or Tuesday will be post day for me. Sorry for the suspense.

Later,
Blammm

I've sent out...

Ok, I've sent out the beginnings for fleshing out some of the back histories to a couple of you concerning how the characters met. I don't feel this is absolutely necessary to the progression of the game right now, but it'll help define the relationships a bit more and helps get a person into their characters. I've still got a couple of you to go, but don't worry... I ain't forgettin' no one.

Also haven't forgotten the pretty. Unfortunately, no progress yet.

Hey, hey, hey....

Just wanted to say that I'll be posting later today. But before we get to far ahead of ourselves, wanted to correct some views of Asher. The guy ain't lazy, ain't nowhere near lazy. Overachiever would be a better word. While I haven't posted yet, Asher would be far more likely to be with Kora, checking over the ship then standing around, 1) becuase he likes being helpful, 2) because he is looking for approval, and 3) Kora's hot and Asher's got a serious case of the hormones!

Anyway, since you have placed Asher by the mule, I'll work with that. But he won't be standing around. Just wouldn't be like him.

Look for my post later today!

Good point

Until we have posted a bit, there will be some mistakes in making assumptions about other characters. We will correct as we go along.

I should post a list of characters with description, traits and complications so you all know one another. So if there is anything on your sheet you don't want shared yet, let me know.

Sam's an open book...

...as far as what's on his character sheet goes, I'd reckon. I am assuming that Wyatt is probably the only one on the crew who knows the "whole story" behind Sam, though (all except for Sam's "real name", anyway)... the rest might've picked up bits and pieces and might have an inkling that Sam's not exactly what he appears but Wyatt'd be the only one who'd know the "major scoop"... Ya'll'll see how that pans out once we get the "When Wyatt met Sam" thing posted.

Character building

The details of WIllow's character sheet pretty much sum up what the others know of her: posh family, incomplete Companion training, almost complete medical school training.

She hasn't had to use her butterfly hairpin around the others, so they don't know that it is anything but a hairpin, but she has assured the captain that she is not completely defenseless. She has made it quite clear, however, that she won't joining any bar fights

She takes the confidentiality of her former clients very seriously, however, so while she may share an amusing anecdote, she doesn't give details. She'll trail off or smile mysteriously if she realizes she's getting close to revealing something she shouldn't.

As for any other secrets, well, EVERY interesting woman has them...I just haven't found out Willow's yet

Crew relationships?

Since we’ve started putting this together, I’ve been trying to get a feel for how Dash might feel about and act towards the rest of Rocinante’s crew and have made a few notes here and there… I figured since we’re liable to get started fairly soon and since there’s some efforts being put towards back-histories and such that I’d compile and post those notes for the perusal, approval, and reference of the rest of you fine folk.

What follows are synopses of Sam’s “thoughts” about the rest of the crew and, if any of you disagree or see the relationships being different, just let me know… I ain’t opposed ta editin’ nothin’…

  • Wyatt – As far as Sam is concerned, Wyatt’s probably the truest friend he’s ever had. The two don’t always see eye to eye, of course, but, in the time the two have traveled the Verse together, any disagreements they might have fall well short of causing any kind of falling out. Sam actually trusts Wyatt (which is saying a LOT)… I figure that these two have an almost brotherly relationship these days – ain’t much that one wouldn’t do for the other. Sam, most often, calls Wyatt by his name or addresses him as “Cap”… on occasion, though, Sam’ll refer to the captain as “WyungSung” (apparently started when Sam drunkenly stumbled over Wyatt’s full name one evening….)

  • Kora – Rocinante’s mechanic almost led to Dash skinnin’ out from the crew when she first come aboard. That tattoo on her arm indicatin’ that she’d been one of the Browncoats “spook types” plumb rose Sam’s hackles an’, for a few days, had him more twitchy than usual. Wyatt had a hand in keepin’ Sam from jumping ship, though, and despite the tattoo, Sam came to realize that Kora was one helluva mechanic and eventually learned that she and he shared some similar views and regrets when it came to having served in the war – not that Sam’s ever admitted to having been a former Purple Belly to the woman, mind you. There was a breakthrough of sorts in Sam and Kora’s relationship the first time Kora ever had one of her flashbacks and freaked right the hell out… The girl had gone plumb loco and every last thing that might’ve been in her brainpan seemed to have leaked out. He’d suffered a pretty good beatin’ at the woman’s hands in the doin’ of it, but he managed to get through to her somehow and, after a while, coaxed her back to the here and now… since that time, Sam and Kora have developed what some might perceive as a love/hate relationship as the two seem to take pleasure in harassing and bickering with each other (Kora always griping about Sam breaking stuff on the ship; Sam grousing back about Kora not being able to keep up with his skills… “Yer a scruffy puke, Sam!”… “Yer a greasy wrench-wench, Kora!”)… The truth in the relationship is revealed in Sam’s “nickname” for the woman, though… Even when he’s giving her a rough time, Sam’s like as not to refer to her as Mei Mei.

  • Trish – Trish scared the livin’ mi tian gohn out of Sam when she first came aboard – first there was the way her face was all mangled up and the fact that she didn’t speak none (both of which, anymore serve as a reminder to Dash that the Alliance and them as are associated with it, really don’t give a pile of crap about “anyone” and is perfectly content to ruin the lives of good, honest folk in their pursuit of having the entire Verse under their big gorram thumbs) – and he had a really hard time not making crude comments about her appearance and demeanor. There did come a time though when Trish changed Sam’s views and opinions of her – she took that foofy pink scattergun of hers and sawed a man in half with it when the fella got the drop on Sam once (and she’d been their “savin’ grace” in more than one situation after that, too). When Trish knitted a blanket and hat for him, though, Sam fully came around to getting as close to loving the woman as his Twitchy nature would allow… He stopped giving her a hard time about her looks (though, like everybody else on the ship, Sam still unintentionally offends her by running off at the mouth and saying something off color) and, given the gifts she’d given him and the fact that she could make canned protein taste like a gorram steak, he took to calling her “Ma”, or “Mama Trish”. There are times to this day when Sam will forego his bandana in favor of the hat that Trish knitted for him… he’s also cut a neckhole in the middle of the blanket she’s made and, occasionally, will wear it as a poncho (he always sleeps with the thing on his bunk, regardless)… “Go ‘head, puhn yoh! Call Ma ugly agin an’ see if ya can say it once more once I put a whole in the back of yer ruttin’ head!”

  • Asher – Known in Dash-speak as “The Kid” (because he’s ‘just a pup’), “Ma’s Boy” (‘cuz the boy’s so cose and cozy with Trish), or just plain ol’ Ash (cuz that’s ‘is name, ain’t it?). Sam likes Asher well enough – he thinks the Kid is right amazin’ with guns (and he figgered him an’ Wyatt was some pretty good shots) an’ is handy as a pocket on a shirt when it comes to the other skills he’s got, too – but, more than liking the kid, Sam loves to give Asher a hard time (Sam’s been known to “borrow” one of Ash’s guns (the kid being unaware until it’s too late, anyway and return later only to toss the thing to him with a wink and say something like; “Almost forgot, Kid… I borried this… Yer outta ammo!”)

  • Willow – Of all of Rocinante’s crew Willow makes Sam the most twitchy (next to Kora and her “freak out sessions”) – ...re-visiting some of this as I was reminded that Wil din't quite finish Companion training... the "makes Sam twitchy cuz of the Registry is out the window, of course... may just have to assume lustful stares and off-color comments for the time being ... she’s the gorram hole patcher an’ boo-boo mender aboard the boat and there’s been more than once that the fine looking lady has had him completely unconscious and vulnerable when he’s needed to be patched up (the fact that anyone might see him that way is enough to give Sam the heebies but, when it comes to someone being able to cut into him at the same time, it’s even worse). Now, while Willow does tend to tweak his twitchy side a bit more than the rest, she’s also the one crew member who seems to glean the most genuine respect (aside from Wyatt) from the Rocinante’s coarse pilot – she was a Companion, after all, and in the Core, anyway, that title demanded respect if not admiration (Companions were known for their discretion, too, so, even if she was to find a trace of Morgan Trent in the registry and recognize him as Sam Dash, Sam figures that she’s like not to go spreadin’ it around… he hopes…). Of course, Sam still won’t let Willow sedate him if he has any choice in the matter, choosing instead to get stitched, patched, poked and prodded without the benefit of having his faculties numbed and, of course, just like with everyone else, Sam has his crude moments – joking about “happy endings” when she’s got him on the table in the infirmary, commenting on how “delectably fine yer lookin’ t’day, Miss Willow”, and other comments that, coming from other folk, might be construed as a might “untoward”, etc… Sam most often refers to Rocinante's doc as "Miss Willow," "Wil", or *gulp* Hot Damn!

Almost forgot...

... I am getting close to done with "my version" of he crew portraits and, with luck, should have the remaining ones posted by the end of the week. Had a serious bout of "oops fits" with Willow's pic (just couldn't pull what I was hoping for from the reference images that Van posted, so I picked through some other images in my reference folders and have started completely rehashing our loverly doctor-type... it's looking much better than my first attempts already :TUP...

Now, as far as Wyatt's pic works out... I've scribbled a few things and peeped out some faces to use for references but, for some reason, I can't help but make Wyatt turn out to look an awful lot like a vaguely Asian version of Lance's pic on his "the-crazed" site. ... I reckon, if the Universe is nudging me in that direction, it can't be too far off, but I may just wait until our industrious Cap posts his pretty before I commit to much more on him than what I've got.

Now, I've also played around a bit with a pic of Trish (even though she is an NPC, I imagine she'll be pretty integral to the crew and, the way my brain works, I just can't leave Ma out). The funny thing with her is she's looking a little bit like EmmyLou Harris at the moment and I'm having a hard time uglying her up quite right. Maybe I'd be best off to "hint at" the ugly rather than try and work it in to the pic, huh? Ooooh! Yeah! You guys are awesome... good thinkin'... thanks for listenin to me ramble...

Anyhoo... Wil's pic by the end of the week... I promise.

Sam's not that shifty...

Rachel and Leah bein' Ash's "favored ladies" Dash'd like leave his hands off of those (lest there was just call fer it)... I was thinkin' more like the Grizzly... the Uzi's... y'know... all them spares the Kid's jus' got layin' about.

twitchy

Did I write a post with a lot of gun play without knowing it? Seems like Sam is expecting a firefight.

Though an incendiary device in Ash's room would be similar to a warzone. (mental note of that)

Serenity RPG doe not play the same as CWWLLO. I can't have people drawing guns and shooting everywhere. That wouldn't be civilized.

Twitchy indeed...

...it's right there in the char sheet.

In Dash's estimation, though, twitchy would've been actually packin' the scattergun and the sniper rifle to boot... "Hey, Kid, I'm feelin' a might on the light side, mind if'n I borry some o' yer ordnance?"

Come to think of it, the only "truly visible" iron Sam's sportin' is the Avenger... them derringers're dinky enough that his boot should cover the one and his jeans an' jacket t'other... I reckon the knife hilt's stickin' up from his boot, too, but, otherwise, I'd say he's lookin' right tame... He din't take nary a grenade, ya notice?
