Subject: Fenris

You had placed Fenris in the Kitchen/common room in your last post. So you would have been there when the discussions happen, also heard the thump and unless Wyatt hauls Hewlett int oa corner to discuss things privately, I would assume you'd be in the cargo bay when H told everyone the news. Heck, I would imagine that Fenris would be the one to answer the door but I don't like hauling your character around and saying what they are doing.

I am looking for reaction to the news and what Asher is gonna do in the Doctor's office. I want to complete this day as soon as I can so I can get back into the story that involves all the active players. You are all experienced enough to know that jumping into the mule and having an armed stand off with Patience's deputies to rescue the Doctor from rescuing Petrie is not a good course of action. Keep in mind, my intention as a GM is to wrap this story line up quickly.

Day 2, Whitefall - Necessity, Rocinante, 10:00 AM PT

“So, we gonna talk ‘bout this job, now, er we gonna get chores an’ s#!t outta th’ way first?” Not waiting for an immediate answer, his eyes fix on Wyatt; “Cap, I got some plans an’ back-up plans laid out on m’ console if’n ya wanna take a gander…”

“I ‘ppreciate it, Sam,” Sung acknowledges and shifts in his chair at the head of the table as he gently sets his mug down. “First, I’m playin’ with an idea that could use y’all’s input. I already ran this past the Gentleman Dash, here, so he’s got a leg up on the rest o’ ya as far as thinkin’ on it, but the more minds we put to it, the more likely we’ll come to a good conclusion. So, here it is…

“Young Miss Chloe has revealed who her child’s father is,” Wyatt meets each of those who are present’s eye as he continues. “She’d like fer him t’ join her on this new leg o’ her life an’ be the father to her child, but it ain’t as easy as us jus’ takin’ on another passenger. Her beau is a rather prominent figure on Whitefall. It jus’ so happens that he’s the preacher’s son, Petrie Tubbs.

“From what I gather, Petrie’s father, Reverend Tubbs, is in tight with Patience. So, we go cartin’ off the Reverend’s son and we’re likely drawing attention from one of the Rim’s most prominent warlords makin’ our lives difficult an’ dangerous. ‘Course, this could also help us with that black cloud hangin’ o’er our heads since the gorram Lián méng started bein’ all friendly-like with us. Puts us back on the side o’ things where we make our bread an’ butter… kinda.

“Anyway, Sam suggested we kill the poor kid an’ while I was mildly amused with the idea at first the more I pondered, the more I think his idea has mettle. The problems, as I sees it, is that we got less than half a day t’ make it happen, we gotta convince folks hereabouts that Petrie is, in fact, dead, an’ we gotta do so in a way that leaves no body t’ inspect. And, it’d be a bonus if we could conjure up a way t’ put the blame on someone else that’d help those like Eagle Eye in their politics with Patience.”

Leveling his gaze directly at each of his crew—his family—Wyatt asks, “Ideas?”

So the conversation began with everyone who was there chiming in on the possibility of sneaking the young Petrie of the planet and sneaking him out with Chloe.

“Cap’n are ya sure the kid wants this too?”

“We got jus’ a sniff more’n twelve hours ‘fore we burn atmo… We kill this Petrie kid an’ we gotta do it quick an’ ugly…”

“Need to talk to Doctor to see if it is even possible”

“Be even better if we could pin it all on Patience and her people somehow. Again maybe getting Eagle Eye involved in this would be a good thing”

Around and around it went, but the constant reminder of it not being easy to fake a death without the person in question being part of the plan.  Breakfast is served, you eat and discuss and then clean up the dishes and still discuss when you realize that you haven’t heard from Asher and the Doc for awhile.

*Thump* *Thump* *Thump* comes the heavy metal knocking of someone at the cargo bay door.  Sam frowns and runs to the cockpit to check the camera to see an older man staying there, grey hair, short cut, clean shaven. He holds his firearm up dangling on his index finger before the camera – clearly denoting he means no harm. He says “You got audio on that? I’m Captain Hewlett Stewart of Morgan Creek. I’m here on behalf of a young man named Asher Talhone. Got a message for Captain Wyatt Sung.”

(assuming someone goes to answer the door)

The Captain waits outside the door of the cargo bay patiently. When the door opens he offers his gun and magazine in separate hands and then holds up his arms so he can be patted down,  “No problem, it is what’d I would do.”

(assuming you let him in with or without the pat down and is brought to Wyatt)

“Captain Sung.” Hewlett nods a greeting to Wyatt, “Nice to meet you. I won’t waste your time. Seems your Doctor Young has gotten herself into a situation involving a young man with injuries. Petrie Tubbs? Anyway, she is doctoring the boy in the offices of a Dr. Amber’s office in town – he was the closest doc with an operating room. She caused a bit of a stir, in the church of all places. Drew a lot of attention to herself in the process.”

(assuming some questions or commentary)

Well the Governor is got the doctor’s office held tight, yes, Patience, that Governor, and your man Asher is there as well. He won’t leave her behind despite her telling him to, seems to believe she needs protecting. Might be right too, hard to say. I get the feeling people around here don’t see many people stand up to Patience and they liked the first act.

(why are you helping out)

“Asher did my crewmember a … favour last night so I wanted to return the gesture.  My man was drunk, looking for a fight and Asher could have laid him down hard, but he didn’t. Right honourable man you got there. Anything else I can do for ya?”

(what was happening there last you saw)

“Patience has four men around the office and two within. Her and the Rev were in for awhile but left as I did looking none to happy. I get the impression your Doctor doesn’t really care who she makes friends with. Asher had made his way inside the office as I left.  One against six, I don’t like them odds but he didn’t look worried. Oh! Asher said the Doc had her ear comm in but I also heard Patience tell one of her men to block all comms.”

(If you wish to ask more you can. Otherwise he will leave you alone)

“Listen, “Hewlett says as he is leaving. “We are on channel 1742, be here until late tonight. If you need anything, give me a call. I can’t stand by and watch a good man stand alone.”

Day 2, Whitefall - Necessity, The Doctor’s Office, 10:00 AM PT

Asher looked at the Doctor’s office and saw the four men surrounding the building and more out front with Patience and Tubbs. He was worried for a moment but then the Governor called her four men over to talk to them. Taking the opportunity that presented itself, Asher swiftly moved into the building.

The waiting room was that same as any other out of the way doctor office that Asher had ever visited. A very pretty young lady with brown hair was busy packing things into her purse, when she looked up at Asher. “Oh! You can’t see the doctor right now. You best be off, come by later. Even I have been told to go home.”

(assuming some sort of answer)

“Well don’t be here when her Governship comes back. She’s already sore about the Lady Doctor taking over and talking down to her.  I’m going home now, you best do so too.” and with that she heads for the door in a hurry.”

There are two doors in the room, one being open to and examining room and another being closed and from within Asher can hear Dr. Young chiding someone for not keeping up with the times in the medical practice.

There were sounds outside and footsteps on the steps outside. The men were coming back and at least two of them were heading into the office.

Subject: apologies

So I have been out for a month. Sorry, truly sorry to neglect this thread. A number of things have conspired against me.


May has been a really busy month for me with work and William. On top of that , I got involved with a 5e D&D group that really started to feed into my time as well. I had to start saying no to the requests for help and DMing. Furthermore, i have got myself in a situation in Rocinante where I am essentially playing with myself and I hate that. I have been trying to find a way out of it without a major rewrite of the story (again). Losing Willow really screwed up this adventure becasue the Chloe plotline and the Perceival plotline were going to inersect and now .... Well now I am posting for my own storyline which is going nowhere.


Anyway, I will figure this out and I have no D&D, family, work or school events planned for this week.

Day 2, Whitefall - Necessity, The Church, 9:40 AM PT

Stephanie ran ahead of Ash as he attempted to get through the crowd. There were two types of people at the end of a sermon, those who wanted to get out fast, and those that wanted to hang around and make a social event out of it. Both groups were in the young man’s way. He kept losing sight of the Doctor but he knew where he was going. By the time he started to get near the front of the church, he hears several gasps of shock and perhaps fear.

Asher cleared the crowd to see Stephanie kneeling before Petrie who seemed to have collapsed. Stephanie had her hands on his arm and shoulder and her eyes seemed to be unfocused.

Reverend Tubbs pushed his way through the crowd, “What’s going on? Petrie! Get up boy!”

“He can’t.” the Doctor replied, “He has multiple external lacerations on his back and lower regions that have hemorrhaged internally. He has lost a lot of blood, he needs to get to a hospital.”

“Excuse me little lady, but my son just needs to man up a bit. Now leave him to…”

“Your son will be dead if you keep arguing with me, your very stupid man. I am Dr. Stephanie Young and I am a medical doctor.”

A murmur rustles through the crowd and Asher hears more than a few recognize the name.

“Now listen her …”

Stephanie was opening up her doctor’s pack and pulling thing out. She pointed at people in the crowd and barked orders, “You! Get me a board or something to slip under him, tabletop, whatever. You, I need fresh bandages, linens, sheets, whatever! You! I need as much ice as you can find,” people ran off in multiple directions. “Is there a medical facility near by?”

“Doctor Amber. Down the street.” Someone called out. “He ain’t no surgeon though.”

“Well I am. Ariel Medical Board Certified, I just need to borrow Dr. Amber’s theatre.”

A short ugly woman with a big hat pushed herself into the fray. “Now hold on just a dang second Miss Young.  We don’t need outsiders coming in and telling us what to do with our own. You just mind your own and we’ll mind ours.” She said with a commanding air.

Stephanie turned Petrie over and torn open his shirt, revealing a mass of ling stripe wounds on the back that had soaked through the bandage already in them. “Doctor Young if you please. I didn’t graduate top of my class to be talk down to by idiots and morons.”

The crowd gasped loudly.

“Do you know who I am!?!?” The woman stammered through clenched teeth. Four men with deputy badges moved up quickly beside her.

“By Buddha!” Stephanie exclaimed as she sniffed the bandages, “Salt? Are you completely mad?” She glanced up at the woman and rolled her eyes dismissively, “Yes yes yes. Patience. Imogen. Governor or some such silliness. Listen, you want to have your flunkies shoot me while I am trying to save a man’s life in front of all these constituents of your, be my guest. But I need a mode of transport to get this man to the doctor’s now!!!” And not a gorram horse!”

Patience looked at Stephanie, then looked at the crowd watching. She made a swishing motion with her mouth and then said, “Huey, get the car out front quick.” One of the deputies took off at a run. She kneeled down to where Stephanie was cleaning wounds and using her dermal regenerator. “When he is all stable, you and me gonna have a few words.’

“Yes, you are very scary and intimidating.” Stephanie said distractedly with a dismissive wave of her hand as she applied ice to the wounds on the back gingerly. “You can have as many words as you want when I’m done, now out of my way or make yourself useful.”

The man showed up with a foldable table, “Is this good?”

Stephanie nodded, “Okay, you gentlemen want to be useful or are you all playing with your guns?” The deputies stood there for a moment and then moved with a start to help lift the young man onto the table and move him to the door. The doctor quickly ran over the Asher, “Tell the Captain what’s happen. I’ll keep in touch as best I can.” She says with a tap to one ear. “My previous captain never let me leave home without it.”

She ran to the door and followed her patient out alongside Reverend Tubbs and Governor Imogen Patience, neither looking all that pleased.

“Wow!” A women said behind Asher, “She’s my new hero.”

“She already is a hero. Stephanie Young? She was in the war, would let either side tell her who was more important based on rank or side. Made a big stand on the Vids and the uppity ups had to back down.”

“Really? Still, her Governor-ship ain’t gonna let being made a fool of in front of a crowd go unpaid.”

Asher stood there for a moment wondering if he should follow behind or go tell the captain. He knew what those wounds meant, the young man had seen them before back on his home world. ‭Waylend Gayner and Adelei Niska would have people who stood up to them tied to a post and whipped. Petrie had been whipped within an inch of his life and then made to wear bandages soaked in salt. Not a memory that Asher cared to relive.

A voice of a man spoke behind him, “Need a lift?”

He turned to see Hewlett Stewart standing there with a bemused grin, “Not far outta of my way if you be in a hurry.”

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

If you note, I was the person that wrote the "postive" review of both the Basic edition and Starter kit. 

Thing is, I have not played tabletop D&D since 2014 when the party of friends I had refused to listen to my pleas that I could not handle creating huge campaigns with multiple stories and being a father of a autistic child at the same time. I quit D&D at the time because I felt I had no option and the friends,  some since high school, other since university, all abandoned me.

Things are better now with Will, and I want to game again. I found a roup threough Meetup and we shall see how it goes, but these are a wide range of age people so they are mopstly 5e players. Some are so young they don;t even know what Tomb of Horrors is.

So I am trying new things. I guess that does call for Bromern's cry of "who are you and what have you done with Roger?" I do not know how this will go. But if I don't try, I end up staying at home, reading rule systems and wishing I could play.

I like 5e so far. There is a lot of merit to the rules taht are more 2e and 3e than anything else. Some sections are very poorly written though so if you are a 5e player (Ody and Tann) I may ask you questions as to how your group figured out a section.

By Rocinante will continue to be my love.

BTW - I am working on a system to incoprate an "Altered Carbon Game" via the cortex rules. As well, Green Ronin is supposedly bringing out a RPG for "The Expanse" in which I am very interested.

Day 2, Whitefall - Rocinante, 7:00 AM PT

Stepping up to the door, Wyatt pauses and looks over the scene before him, considering the encounter.
“Miss Chloe?” He doesn’t enter the room yet. Doing so seems forward to him despite the room being his infirmary.

The young girl looks over at Wyatt and sits up. “Yes? Are you the Captain here?”

“Do you mind if’n I join ya?”

Fear plays across Chloe’s face, unhidden terror as the first thing that goes through her mind is that Wyatt means something else by joining her. She recoils backwards in the bed, drawing her legs close to her body defensively.

(assuming some assurance that she has nothing to fear)

Moving to place his buttocks against the rim of the counter, Wyatt places his hat on the surface next to him and raises his eyes to meet the face of the woman he’s offered sanctuary to. Running his left hand through his black hair, the captain begins.

“We’ve taken a job that’ll bring us t’ Pegasus, Bellerophon’s moon. You got a chance t’ start anew there. Is this what ya want?”

Chloe cocks her head to one side, looking at the Captain, “Huh. That is something that ain’t asked of me much. What I want.” She says quietly, drawing herself out of the tight position, “In fact, I think you are only the second person who has ever asked me that. You and Petrie. What I want, Captain, is to be with Petrie and live out a life where I can chose what I want and my baby can grow up not beholden to anyone. But I don’t think the verse cares what I want. I don’t think you are here to offer me that chance are you?

“Can’t say that’s a possibility, Miss,” Wyatt drawls. “Way I understand it, he’s the son o’ someone important-like. That’d draw an unfortunate amount o’ attention our way an’ I ain’t keen on attention.”

“You are right, he is the Reverend son and the Reverend certainly thinks he is important. He also thinks he knows what is right and good for others and he should be able to make people do what he wants. Seems to me that what important means. Doing what someone else wants. I’m not important. I’m not special. I can’t remember my momma well but she used to sing this song to me about dust in the wind. All we are is dust in the wind. That’s me. Dust.”

“What d’ ya think’ll happen should yer boyfriend go a-missin’ an’ we’re the only transport that’s burned atmo in the associated window, Miss Chloe?” Shaking his head, Sung continues, “I ain’t riskin’ my crew nor the other passengers we’re takin’ on, t’ be labeled kidnappers by Patience an’ her crew. So, I’m afraid the answer is a no. Does this change yer mind in goin’ t’ Bellerophon?”

Chloe looks up at Wyatt, meeting his eyes firmly with her own gaze that seems so much other than the girl before him. “If you are giving me the choice between saving my baby or staying here, there ain’t no guess – I’ll save my baby. I’ll take my chances with what Ms. Wilson is offering, can’t be worse than here. Like I said, I ain’t important but this baby is important to me. But leaving won’t change how I feel about Petrie and I’ll regret leaving every single day that I live. Have you ever loved someone Captain? I mean really love someone so much so that when you are apart your gut just hurts? “She looks away as tears well up in her eyes. “I’m sorry. I don’t mean to be a bother and I don’t want you risking yourself or yours for me. If you drop me on Bellerophon, I’ll take it as a kindness and thank you for all you have done.  Even if you just take me somewhere else away from here … cause, I know what Patience would do to me. She’d rip my baby out of my body, kill me and sell the child so she wasn’t out of pocket. It is all credits and cash to her, and love doesn’t hold a candle to money.”

(assuming some response)

“Thank you Captain. If you don’t mind, I’d like to be alone now.” She says quietly and as Wyatt leaves the infirmary, he can hear Chloe crying softly to herself.

Day 2, Whitefall - Eagle-Eye’s farm, 7:00 AM PT

Stephanie was making her way through the Cargo Bay towards the exit of the ship. Looking around she couldn’t help but wonder if Wolf had claymore mines hidden in the walls like Grace did on Destiny.  Probably not, she decide, that was strictly a Gracie sorta thing to do.

“Hey wait up! I’m coming with you doc.”

Stephanie turned around and saw young Asher Talhone coming towards her while putting on his (she assumed) nicest dress jacket. He was dressed well for church except that he was wearing his sidearm at his side. “I’m sorry Asher, but I’m heading for church.”

“Yeah, I know. Thought you could use the company. And I ain’t been for awhile. Never hurts to punch your card with the lord.”

Stephanie gave him a hard look, “You go to church with a gun?”

Ash looked down at his sidearm and back at Stephanie, “We did back home. You never know what’s gonna drop from the sky and reavers don’t care about the Lord and his house rules.”


"Yeah. Reavers.”

“Stephanie closed her eyes and took a deep breathe. “Very well. But I’d appreciate it if your gun stayed where it belongs unless absolutely necessary.”

“You have my word ma’am.”

“Please don’t call me Ma’am. Our age difference is far enough without the reminder. Stephanie will do, or Doctor if you must. I’ll even take Doc over Ma’am.”

“Yes Ma’am.”

She glared at him.

“Stephanie. Yes Stephanie.”

She continued on her way with Asher following behind her. Across the field there was a wagon hitched up to some horses and hay bales laid down in the wagon. A large group of people were all dressed up and getting into the wagon.  Both Ash and The doctor noticed that the people on the wagon were mostly carrying sidearms and there were men and women on horses surrounding the wagon with rifles. Asher threw a mischievous look at the Doctor who just ignored him.

Day 2, Whitefall - Necessity, The Church, 8:00 AM PT

The church is filling up by the time you arrive. Seems like this town is much like many others throughout the verse where church going is taken seriously and a family oriented experience. Many families sit together in the same pews they always do, every time they go to church and newcomers are welcome but generally looked upon as outsiders. Ash and the Doctor manage to grab seats in the back, on the outer aisles. The serve starts with singing, a organ player who has seen many years and a choir that looks like it was forced to come by each one of their mommas.

The Reverend Tubbs presides over the readings and the songs and then comes front and centre with a sermon.  He doesn’t use the podium but walks back and forth, up and down the aisle as he preaches.

Reverend Tubs

He starts out with a question of gifts and what does it mean to receive a gift. He draws answers form the audience of faithful, taking the answers and moving towards the idea of God’s gift. What does a gift from god mean to you? Aren’t all god’s gift miracle? What is a miracle? Has anyone seen a miracle? From there he turns to the miracle of birth and how the ability to bear children is a miracle and a gift from good to women-kind. There sermon goes on, drawing a conclusion that people need to accept the lord into their hearts and accept the gifts he brings. The reverend continues down this road, linking the refusal of gifts to the devil and how lust is a beast that lives within everyone.

As Tubbs goes on tirade on the place of women in the home and the role of men to protect, you notice a late arrival into the church, but a spot is held for him. He is a young man, and the familial resemblance to the reverend is clear, this must be Petrie Tubbs. He walks stiffly and sits down very slowly.

Petrie Tubbs

After an hour or so, the service ends and Stephanie turns to Asher, “I need to talk to that young man.  You stay here and I will be right back.” And she is off before Asher can protest, threading her way through the crowd as it gets up and files it way towards the exits.

Day 2, Whitefall - Rocinante, 8:00 AM PT

“Mornin’, folks,” Sam almost sing-songs as he steps into Roc’s gathering room, “Hope ya’l’s night was’s good as mine!” Grinning like a fool and absently humming under his breath again, Sam makes a beeline for the galley and, after planting a kiss on Ma’s cheek, helps himself to a large cup of the freshly brewed coffee before taking his usual seat at the table. “I got me some, last night,” he grinned at the faces around the table following a long, satisfied pull from his mug, “How’d ya’ll do?”

(responses to Sam?)

The pilot chuckles, softly and fondly, recalling the hours he spent with Misty. Then, his gaze skinning faces, again, he asks; “So, we gonna talk ‘bout this job, now, er we gonna get chores an’ s#!t outta th’ way first?” Not waiting for an immediate answer, his eyes fix on Wyatt; “Cap, I got some plans an’ back-up plans laid out on m’ console if’n ya wanna take a gander…”

(Meeting minutes? Asher is not there as well as the Doctor)
