Subject: getting feisty


“Well, Captain, I hate to break it to you, but last time, we got paid to deliver some wine and not to ask questions. And you remember how that ended. Personally speaking, I don’t really care about that girl, but ignorance isn’t bliss. I think we should try and learn as much as we can so we can be prepared for when trouble hits. I’d rather know what to expect then wait for them tell us when they think it’s convenient for them. As the saying goes: knowledge is power.” Grace said

Jon whirled on Grace,” Don’t you EVER think I’ve forgot what happened.. …I lost two good people..my ship. ….above all I’d thought I’d lost you…… We weren’t ignorant…..you’d check that cask …We all knew that we were taking a risk……The only thing we could have done was take it back. Is that what you want?..We take the Princess back to Badger?…That will keep you all safe…and we can safely deliver cow dung from then on…..Don’t you think I’ve haven’t already thought of doing just that? “I also know you ain’t here to be safe, but there ain’t no job or cargo worth more to me than you’all….So if you want to turn around I’ll do it….I ain’t saying we stop listening and watching but we ain’t ever go’na know everything. So we just keep doing the job we were hired to do and cover each other’s backs.”

Grace did not flinch from the heat of the Captain’s retort. She never did. She stared back at the captain with a face plain as protein paste and said, “I was talking about gathering Intel, I wasn’t talking about going back like a Tou xiang Huai dan.”

Tess stepped in quickly, “Whoa. Okay. That’s enough both of you. The wound is pretty fresh but we gonna pick at it over and over it ain’t never gonna to heal. Captain’s right though, we took this job and we need to see our way to the end. I’d like nothing more than to ruffle Mr. Steele’s feathers but we need to keep flying and keep eating. I’m rather fond of doing both. Yet, Grace has the right idea too. Forewarned is forearmed as they used to say and i think we need as much forearming as we can muster.”

(assuming some responses)

“So Miss Princess has glommed onto Catie here so why don’t we use that? We are in the Black together for five days so I bet Catie can get the Princess alone for a spell. JC? Maybe you can chat up this her Seth and see what he likes, maybe keep him distracted for a bit. He looks like the type that works out.” She then smiled a mischievous grin, “Then Jon here can pump the Wedding planner for information.”

(assuming some protest from Jon and Stephanie shaking her head firmly)

“I’m kidding. Jon can make some inquiries and try playing sly with her to see if she wants more than his body. C’mon. It is late or early as you may want to call it and we all need sleep. See what tomorrow brings us with some luck.”

(some closing comments from crew if any)

The meeting was over and everyone filed out of the room to their quarters or their station. Stephanie stayed behind with Jon, closing the door behind them.

“Well Jon.” She said, “What shall we do now?” she said as she lowered the lighting in the room. “I believe I owe you an apology or two?”

Destiny Day Two of Journey. 9:00 am ST

The brothers were the first to stir in the morning although the other three were not far behind. The passengers were not well rested, as is often the case with the first night on a ship. The brothers still looked rather grim and Rick was wondering about eating arrangements and the galley.

“We serve ourselves or do you do sit down meals here?” Rick asked as he started to go through the cupboards. AJ sat down and waved at his brother to stop what he was doing. Rick shrugged and sat down beside his brother.

Lilianna and Seth came down in a bit of a state – in fact, they were arguing.

“I will not stay in that room for five days Seth! No! Forget it!”

“Miss Fairchild, it is a secure room and your safety is ....”

“I don’t care. I will not stay there. I can’t take a walk off this ship last I heard so I WILL walk around. I WILL talk to other people and I will not be your prisoner!”

Seth face turns red and her words act like a slap to his face. “I am sorry Lil... Miss Fairchild. I was not attempting to make you my prisoner. I apologize if my zeal for your protection made you feel that way.”

Lilianna sighed heavily, “I know you are Seth but please, no one knows I am here except the people on this ship and my step-father. I think I am safe. And stop with the Miss Fairchild stuff. You called me Lilianna before.”

The two of them sat down at the table beside the Simon brothers. Lilianna said hello to the boys pleasantly. Soon after that the Asante came to the galley as well, dressed in another power business suit that hid the soldering hotness that Jon knew lay underneath. She smiled and said hello to everyone and asked if there was coffee.

Subject: one more thing


With the combat coming I wanted to put out there some rules that I will be applying

Sonic Rifles: They do d8 stun damage and the Basic damage from them is all Stun. Now if you have a Ballistic Vest or armour, according to the rules they are half effective. I am not sure what they meant by that but since the rifle is ineffective against inanimate objects, I will be ruling that wear a vest will give you half damage from a sonic rifle. (For the record, I am assuming that Tess, Wyatt, Wolf, Ash and John are wearing vests even if you did not say so. Ma has her armour. Havelock has the vest and duster.

If you hit 0 Stun points, you get and endurance roll to stay conscious.

If you take more stun than you have points, you are stunned of course but you do get a Resistance roll every round to “shake off the effects”

You may use a plot point at any time to “revive” or “resist” stun effect. Everyone has 6 plot points going into the battle.

Ballistic Vests: Used much like the bulletproof vests of Earth-That-Was, ballistic mesh is a finely woven cloth of metal and plastic over polymer sheeting. Ballistic mesh is meant to stop bullets and that’s about it. The mesh absorbs 1 Wound point from any attack on an area covered by the suit (torso, arms and legs, usually – I roll a d6 and if I get a 1, you got hit in the flesh), but it doesn’t do much more than that to protect against knives, bombs and so on. Against normal bullets, however, the mesh converts all Wound damage to Stun damage. This effect doesn’t apply to arrows, bolts, specialty bullets or explosives. The Mercs are wearing a form of this vest as a jacket with helmets. They are not wearing re-breather helms (probably due to the restrictions they cause on movement and agility).

This weekend got away from me. I hope to get a post in for all the Games today.

Combat in Serenity is based on a six second round and I can not see myself playing this as a post for every six seconds. So ... I'm going to have to assume a bit.

Tann - Can you give me an idea of where you'd like Wolf to be beyond "hopefully out of sight". You got people on the roof so they can access through the shuttle bay doors the easiest, or use the upper EVA entrance by the kitchen. So .. Catwalk egress to the shuttles, maybe a few stairs down so if they blow the doors you won't be in the way? See picture below

Subject: I am pretty sure that I said Victoria


It is a Victoria Class, modified. The Victoria-class corvette was designed to allow surreptitious insertion of Special Forces and their equipment. Due to its ability to move undetected, and its relatively high amount of firepower, a Victoria-class corvette is often put under the command of Parliament Operatives who need a fast ship with sufficient firepower to resolve any likely armed conflict.

Before you go looking up on the best way to attack something, does Asher have Knowledge (Ships)?

Fed Marshall ASREV Defiant On course to LV-426, 12:45 pm PT


The ASREV moved through the black on a hard burn. Vasquez was in the pilot seat, Hicks on weapons, Hudson on communications and Col. Sanders in the command/co-pilot seat.

“Hudson, anything?” the Colonel asked.

“Negatory sir. I’ll holler if I see anything but right now it is quieter than a virgin’s bedroom.”

“You’d know.” laughed Vasques.

”I’m holding out for you honey!” Hudson laughed back. “HOLY MOTHER OF GORRAM HELL!”

“What is it?” Sanders called out.

“Cortex is back and my board just lit up like a whorehouse sir. Personal transponder from upper class mucky muckys. Lots of them! Life pods! Five Star Liner – Star of Sihnon. They’ve been transmitting for hours sir.”

“Okay. Hudson, send a wave to high command. Get what they can to the life pods stat. We can’t stop.

“Whoa Colonel!” hick said evenly, “Regs says we have to ..”

“I know Hicks but we can’t take passengers, we need to find the mercs and codename Sparrow. I’ll take the heat if it goes south.”

“Sir?”

“Yes Hicks?”

“It always goes south for us.”

“Luck is gonna change.”

“Sir! There are signals from LV-426 too. Definitely some people there. I am getting a distress signal from a transport ship called Rocking Naughty. “

“Run a background check on it Hudson. If some civilian ship came to rescue and are in the middle, I want to know all about them. Some people would sell their mothers for a credit.”

“Yes Sir.”

“Vasquez. If you can make this thing go faster – do it now. Hicks, run full ops on the weapons systems cause we will be going in hot. Hudson, call for backup. We’re gonna need it.”

Subject: thanks Ody


I will look at it soon.

BTW - Sheldon in the caves is reacting to the sonic boom, not the shock wave. He mistakenly assumed that was his missile. Not that that affects anything.

Answers to the question

Via email, Bromern let me know -

Wyatt has the radio that is set to the Merc band.

The case is in the cave and given to Sifu. However since I do not want a NPC in charge of the case that means that Willow is now in charge of the case.

The second case (Matherson's) I await confirmation but I believe it is locked up in the infirmary with John. Please clarify if you know otherwise.

You can disagree with me if you wish Albert. My ruling stands. I do not need to know how a gun works or a grenade is pulled to play a game. Skill + ability rolled against a difficulty chart or a opposing roll.

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


I have often said that when people post they are posting what they think happens, and I am posting what actually happened.

As well, this is a game, controlled by dice and skills chosen and the GM say so. So things are not always going to go as you plan they will.

That being said:

Grenades:

I read your post Tann but Wolf set grenade traps using what skill? Covert - no he doesn't have that. Knowledge - no. Tech Eng Security systems? No. Hmmm. To quote Wolf himself I’m a mechanic Captain, not a bloody bomb maker

I decided to use Mech Eng as it was the closest and I wanted to find something you could use. However, there is a chance even with the best trap layers that something went wrong. Shit happens in combat.

So - Three flash bangs went off when the ASREV flew over. They did not hurt anyone or blind anyone defending. the soldiers had not entered the ship yet so they did not affect them either. Specifically they were the ones at the doorway between the catwalk platform and the door into the common area and Infirmary, the top of the stairs leading from the common area to dining area and the hallway to the engine room.

Sonic Boom

Not that your characters would know but Nancy created the dust cloud to cover the fact that she dropped the body with a message onto the shuttle. She then moved back to where she was suppose to be under same cover.

Shock Wave

I was reading your pre-post Ody in a hurry so I am sorry I did miss a point. The shockwave from the missile affected the shuttle that Tess was in because she was too close and the shuttle was not made for combat. Tess' Pilot skill failed and I played that she flew over-confidently. The 1-4 chances after that were, the ground, hit the Asrev, hit the Corvette and hit Rocinante.

So the shockwave from the missile did not throw Ma and Asher's shuttle around, nor did it affect the corvette or the soldiers.

Deputy Callahan

Nancy was not in the Wine adventure of Destiny. The feds were Sanders, Hudson, Hicks and Vasques. So there is a chance that Tess may gun down the fed spy, or vice versa.

Comm

I think it has been established that you can direct your calls on the comm to a number of people , so Asher can call out to everyone, or two or three as he sees fit.

Asher and Ma's view is sorta blocked by a dead guy right now.

You would have seen the men dropping from the corvette.

You would have seen and felt the fireball/explosion and you'd have seen the two ships go down. All through dust and dirt but you get the idea.

The Corvette is making its way to the Atmo processor, or at least that is the direction it is going.

I still need my questions answered on the case.

Tann - I rolled your d6 Mech and d8 INT against the movement of the ship at d6+d6 for all the traps you set. The three flashbangs failed.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: First down


OOC: I still need a few answers as to the whereabouts of the case but here we go.

Before the Battle

Willow arrived at the caves with Amber in tow and the young girl who had been helping Asher out. As they approached the entrance to the caves, The young lady turned to Wllow, “Listen. My name is Jessie. I’m a thief and Ive done a con or two but I want you know that right now, I’m very grateful for what you people did and ....well, I’ve got your back. I ain’t weak. You may not trust me. Heck I wouldn’t, but I’m here and I’m ... well I’m here. And that something. I hope.”

Inside, the cave was bustling with activity. Sifu had everyone working on something and Lord Hood was there as well giving out advice and helping where he could. The monk’s face showed relief at Willow arriving though and with a glance Willow knew he was pushing himself well past the point he should considering his injuries.

The doctor took in the common area of the cave s in a glance. The boys were there rewiring some sort of earth mover and arguing on the best way to do so. Cameron Bridges was working away at a communications terminal with Portia Amber close by. There were a lot of people missing though. The Queen Bea and her Heathers as well as many of the passengers.

“We moved anyone and everyone who could not help to the farthest reaches of the cavern. “ Sifu said and smiled.

(assuming a “where is Matherson?”)

“He came in awhile ago but was saying something about an alternate communications relay? I was not sure what he mean but he went off to the southern caverns that were the dining areas.”

Inside the infirmary of Rocinante, John was losing hope of figuring out this device and that made him mad. He was better than a bunch of mercenaries and he would not let them get the better of him. But it seemed like they were and he hated it. He slammed his fist down hard and swore in as much Chinese as he learned in the war. When he did, the head receiver buzzed slightly and vibrated.

John stared at it for a moment. How did I do that? He hammered his fist down again and again until the receiver buzzed again. He looked down at the wires his fist were on and stared tracing backwards. Maybe there is another solution.

Inside the ASREV, the pilot brought the ship up to speed. “Whoa! Honey! You do know how to fly!” Wilson said from the co-pilot position. He was there to control the weapons and the bomb bay. Normally the ship took a four man crew but this baby was set up so it could be one person running the entire show.

“Thanks Wilson.” Honey purred as she activated the transmitter on the wristband she swipe from Black Bart’s room. Range was short on this but Wilson was close enough. “By the way. It isn’t Honey.”

“Pardon?”

“Honey is not my name. It’s Nancy.”

“Nancy? Why you telling me this?”

“Thought you would like to know. So you can tell Satan who sent you.” And she hit send. Wilson’s body spasmed once as his brain exploded. Nancy quickly took her seltbelt off, put the auto pilot on cruise and rushed to grab Wilson’s body and dumped in it the bomb bay. No going back now Callahan.. She thought and rushed back to the pilot seat. What she had planned was gonna take finesse and timing. Eyes on the stage boys! I’m just getting warmed up


The Battle Begins LV-426, 12:45 pm PT

BOOM
BOOM
BOOM


The sonic booms of three ships crash through the atmo. The ship sensors picks up the ASREV first, followed by a CL-54 Cargo Lifter (with a mag lift that could easily pick up Rocinante). Then a large ship comes within range. A Victoria Class Corvette - used by special forces in the war to move troops discreetly from planet to planet. It is capable of holding 50 troops plus a command crew as well. A lot of firepower and a lot of soldiers.

Wolf relays the intel over the ship-linked handsets each of those away from Roc carried, and Wyatt confirmed receipt. He had already heard the sound barrier being broken and was scanning the sky for signs of the enemy, but the announcement of the ship types coming their way was of immediate concern.

“Tess,” Wyatt activated the radio. “Change of targets. Ignore that ASREV and take out that cargo ship. With the ASREV in the air, we may need you t’ help run interference. Copy?

“Once we see the ships we’ll try t’ figure their trajectory an’ move so we can harry them,” Wyatt informed Havelock. “We’re gonna have t’ get in close as you an’ I are much better with our pistols. You still game?”

“Whenever you are Captain. Who of us for the war isn’t?” Havelock intoned and revved the mule up.

Then, the ASREV Came into view moving fast – real fast - Risking blowback fast actually. It dipped low and buzzed the landing strip and Rocinante causing a huge dust up of dirt and debris. Had Wyatt not switched the landmines to remote from impact they all would have been set off by the effects of the sonic boom.

Then the Sonic boom hit – hard. Shaking the ground, the ship and the rocks themselves. Inside the ship, Wolf and the two hired men had to brace themselves as the ship shook so much that they lost their footing and almost fell. China plates and glasses could be heard breaking in the cabinets, the three flashbangs that Wolf had set up to fire all fell and set themselves off and inside the infirmary, John was startled by the boom and the vials, beakers and tray shattering. “Do you mind!” He called out annoyed, “Some of us are trying to work!”

Wyatt watched the ship fly by. Cover. It was creating a natural cover by stirring up the dust.

The ASREV performed a perfect crazy Ivan over the shuttle where Ash and Ma were waiting. Ma had no lifted off because she had no time. Then suddenly there was a loud thump on the nose of the shuttle – a squishy sort of thump as a body fell from the ASREV bomb bay doors and dropped onto the windshield and nose of the shuttle. The dead man head was bleeding from his helmet and his head was mush inside the visor. (note: Due to the dust, no one sees this except Ash and Ma)

Written across his shirt in blood was “Help is coming.”

Ash and Ma looked at each other and back to the dead man on the windshield. Then Ma pointed at the communication panel and the nav-comp. Both wee connecting to the cortex again. Whatever was jamming the signal just stopped.

The ASREV flew back to a attack position outside of Rocinante’s rear. Auto-cannons and missiles unfurled themselves as it held a hover position 100 feet away from the ship. Dust continued to swirl upwards.

The corvette came into view with the Cargo lifter close behind. The corvette flew over the emergency runway and then soldiers on anti-grav belts began to leap out of the belly of the beast. Eleven men dropped as a team on the landing fielding as the ASREV held watch. You can’t see them clear enough through the dust to see how they are equipped bu t enough to know they are armed.

(Note: The men inside the Ship cannot see this at all)

The corvette did not stop and as it passed over Rocinante eleven more jumped out. The heavy impact of men in boots and armour clattered in the roof of the ship and echoed within. “We’ve got company Wolf!” John called out sardonically.

Tess was stonefaced as the ASREV roared by. A little dust cover didn’t scare her at all. She’d flown blind before. She was ready to lift of and intercept the ASREv when the Captain came across the comm.. “Tess, change of targets. Ignore that ASREV and take out that cargo ship. With the ASREV in the air, we may need you t’ help run interference. Copy?”

“You got it captain.” She replied, mentally agreeing with his assessment. The corvette might be able to take a hit and keep flying. The lifter though, wasn;t a military machine and wasn’t built for gunplay. Of course, the ASREV could easily hunt down a shuttle but wasn’t anything she could do about that.”

She lifted off quietly and moved the shuttle through the dust cloud, using their own cover as her own. As soon as she was ready, she hit the thruster and soared upward rapidly.

To the crew of the Cargo lifter, it was comical. A shuttle popping out of the dust like it was a gunship or something. “Boss? We got a gnat here. Do you want us to GORRAM HELL!!!!!!!”

Tess dropped the missile and it flew like an arrow shot from a longbow of earth that was. The crew wasn’t prepared for the attack and they did not have time to make evasive manoeuvres. The missile scored a direct hit on the front of the cargo lifter.

The explosion was intense. It lit up the sky and created a huge fireball. The shock wave from the explosion threw the shuttle backwards. Tess struggled to gain control but the force was too great. Her control panel burned out from the feedback. She swung low and fast, clipping the side of ASREV. Both ships were put into a spinal downwards. Since they were so close to the ground anyway, they skipped across the ground and both crashed landed badly to the south and east of the landing strip.

“Honey! Honey Cream!” The one who had been making the orders before shouted on the radio, “Speak to me babe!”

Neither of the ships blew up and yet both landed upright. They would not be taking off soon though.


Meanwhile, in the caves, the ground shook and people started to cry out. Sheldon remarked out loud to his friend, “Oh good. It worked.”

Leonard looked at his friend, “What worked Sheldon?”

“Did you know you can make explosives from household items like coffee and cooking oil. And High Fructose corn Syrup is almost a hydrocarbon?”

Howard looked scared, “oh no Sheldon. What did you do?”

“They wanted a missile. I made a missile!”
