Rooms....

If it isn't an issue I think Ivy and Pops should take the "guest" rooms 5 & 6. That would leave 10 and 11 for guests. This way Ivy and Wyatt are near each other and Pops has some privacy.

Hmmmm

Roger, I have a question. It says that 15-16 are the engine room and the engine as such that puts the engine is on the middle deck, if that's correct why are the mechanic’s quarters on the lower deck all the way all the at the end? Thats a whole ship and level away if something goes bad and needs emergency fixing.

*fades in*

Post is up. Thanks so much Bromern for collabing with me.

 

One thing. I posted earlier in thread, but I'll say it again. Only the Captain and Pops know Sean's real name. He'll be introducing himself as Fox until he knows everyone better.

 

*evaporates*

@Chessic

Ok as your only going by Fox around the rest of the crew I went ahead and changed my post to reflect that.

Tann, the mechanic's quarters are directly beneath the engine room. The only way to get to the quarters is by going through the engine room.

Well shit

Hmmm though that makes sense that means my first post where I meet the doc does not work as I would not be carrying a large box of ammo to my room that would go by the med bay.

Maybe taking it to cargo bay 19?

communication

Communication in the ‘Verse

Part of The Cortex (the verse’s internet really) is a vast signal network that ties all the worlds in the ‘Verse together. It uses any and all available channels—laser, maser, broadcast radio— to ensure that a message is routed to the right destination. Due to the speed of light lag caused by the distances involved (up to eight hours to send out to the Rim and get a reply), messages, called “waves” because of the way they spread throughout the system, tend to be pre-recorded. Real-time conversations are limited to less than about 100,000 miles.

Short Wave radio – Used for your hand communicators, has a limited range of several thousands of kilometres. Not good for secrets cause frequencies can be listened to easily.

Waves –the Cortex signal network. Fast and can communicate across the verse. Very easily hacked or intercepted, especially to those who work for alliance.

Tight Beam Comm – Aimed at a single receiver, usually encrypted and the receiver has to be in a particular sector of space. Same lag issues as waves for very long distances but very secure.

You have the capacity to do all three from your ship as long as the communication array is operational.

Ballistic Vest and Armour

Armour can save your life but taking hits with bullets will eventually wear things down.  So in the Verse, armour comes with an armour rating. The rating in games terms is how often you can get hit before the armour can fail you. So an AR of 4 means you can take 4 shots to the armour before the plates give up. After 4 shots, the armour has a 25% chance of failure, then a 50%, than a 75% and then it is done for sure. I am assuming all armour owned by crew is Tier 1.

Tier 5 (AR 8 to 10) - Alliance armor, Generation X Carbon Nanosteel plating (Extremely valuable, accessible only to Alliance military)

Tier 4 (AR 7) - High grade armor, Generation VIII Draconis Steel plating (Highly valuable, accessible to Alliance military, rarely seen on black market)

Tier 3 (AR 6) - Medium grade armor, Generation V Amphorite Steel Plating (Valuable, accessible on black market, discontinued by Alliance military)

Tier 2 (AR 5) - Low grade armor, Generation II Reslin-Modernis Steel Plating (Uncommon, available for purchase legally with private security license, openly available on black market)

Tier 1 (AR 4) - Personal security armor, Generation I Torin-Black Ceramic Plating (Common, openly available for purchase)

Cheap gear and knock offs(AR 1-3) - When you can't afford the very best, there is Al's disposable body armour. Comes with a free body bag.

pics

All characters have pictures and are updated in the Character thread.

I will be away for a week to a cottage with family and I hope to ignore my phone as much as possible. I will answer any questions when I get back on Saturday.

Ivy...

It says that Ivy is sixteen and it seemed odd that girl that old would start call the men in the crew "Uncle". I could see Wyatt as uncle from being a framily friend but has Ivy built trust in the rest of the crew this soon to be that familure? 

Anyway Jonah is being a bit formal but addressing Ivy with respect and treating her as equal. Though not posted it is guessed that Wyatt has talked to her about pulling her weight.

Seeing that folks seem to take exception to Jonah's beans maybe she'd like to learn to cook.

So this is the picture

When Ivy was brought on board and started with the crew, she was withdrawn and barely spoke. It took time for her to come around and one of the way to do so was the make the crew family to her. So she started calling everyone as aunt or uncle. It is her way of dealing with the enormity of her family being killed. You can tell her to stop calling you Uncle Pops but it won’t work. 

She does love learning and spends time with everyone learning about space stuff. She excels at physical activities as well, like martial arts, running and contortions.
