Do you want us to roll for those questions? Or do your answers given above indicate that we don't roll?

I think we are supposed to roll. I won't be able to for awhile. Someone can roll for me if I have not already done so.

You roll for them. Or, SavBob can make the rolls. The NPC is trying to screen you by things you should know, given what he's seen and heard of you.

I can narrate, but figured the other two questions should be answered first as they were asked first.

Feel free to narrate your successes, for the sake of dialogue. Sufficient to say that you impress, or you can literally answer the questions. Adding extra details is possible if you want to explorer how to impress the man. I have an idea where the Advantages can come into play, and likely the triumph. Could refund the credits, although we are not credit-concerned at the moment. I have other ideas to use after you all narrate a bit. (I gave the answers OOC if you want to be that detailed.)

I think both Vesper and Helios were there at the beginning. Helios replaced Svae. Written in from the beginning.

Yes, Toryn and Samoc Farr are from 'canon'. As is The Bright Hope GR-75 (C-1-7). And Darlyn Boda WAS a staging point for Hoth. I am sticking to MOST of the canon that fits my purpose. Taking liberties with the rest.

@SavageBob @swrider
Now is a time, IC, to explain what's gone down. It'll drive where things can go from here. I understand that Rider is a bit limited in his screen time, so perhaps Vesper will have to do the explaining. It could be as shorty as, "Got supplies, ran into some pirates, blew up an Imperial Fuel Depot on Ione."

I also want involved with the supply room portion so I don't really know what happened there.

Yes, my apologies. Things have been slow on this site of late, so I've been a bit slacking in my posting. :/

Ah, it's okay. Been trying to get a Pathfinder PBP up with the tabletop group. Tried it once before, but it died off. Harder for me as a GM picking it back up.

Of the five soldiers we rescued on Hot, they all survived, yes?
(Argt. Braxxx, Joons, Cintilla, Dennies, Kwist)

Others on the ship would (possibly) be: Lanna, Thino Krist, Oona Braitano, and maybe a Ronin Wayne.
...along with the prisoner, Lt. Pitts.

DUTY!!!

#66

Post by DeepSpacer » Mon Nov 18, 2019 1:55 am

Hi Guys! We have several directions in which we can go. First of all, there is the matter of "Duty", a mechanic I am getting used to. According to the book, you can get something each time you achieve a Contribution Rank. We recently went to 2, and then to 3. One could receive "two" things or just go for something big.

Equipment: acquire something of 3 + Rank. One could acquire two items since we gained two ranks. I can't imagine there is anything you all desperately need or were looking forward to, restricted or not. Maybe Helios wants a Bazooka! :D

Vehicle: acquire a vehicle or starship of Rarity 3 + Rank (3). We have The Red Dawn. It is a beginner ship, for sure. I could see us staying put, acquiring two individual ships (B-wings, or something), or join something bigger (a cruiser, transport, etc...). I could even go above the Rarity 6. A lot of this has to do what adventure options you want to have.

Strategic Asset: safe house, base, temporary use of a powerful ship, cell of operatives to use, infiltrate a planet or base (Bespin? Anoat?)

I'm open. We seem to have two plot hooks, treating the wounded and finding transport off the world. One is more your alley the other mine. Since I am swamped I say we begin with the wounded. We should keep a low profile since there are so many at total here on this planet.

Next Adventure???

#68

Post by DeepSpacer » Mon Nov 18, 2019 2:35 am

Since we are few in number, I have many ideas. Some I had planned from early on, others just came to me. Recently, I had rather thought to bypass 'side' adventures and stick to "rising up" against the Empire on a system-scale. In PBP it is rather hard to do side adventures because they take 3-4 months in real time.
  • Stay on Darlyn Boda. Try to gain some much-needed funds by entering a Toccat hunt on Darlyn Boda to please a Hutt.
  • Stay on Darlyn Boda. Assault their jungle base. "Liberate" the planet, so to speak. Match wits against a base commander. No guarantee of victory, mind you. It may go poorly.
  • Establish a Rebel Base. Strike out at the Empire from a hidden base. Hit supply lines, raid bases, disrupt communications, etc... Have a small fleet of starships. A B-Wing here, a Y-Wing there, .... Fly missions. Two-man ships or two one-man ships. Lead a small squadron.
  • Return to Ione or Mexeluine and help lead something there. Deal with factions, and such. Unite disparate groups against the Empire (Pirates, outlaws, planets, systems, etc...). Maybe much more of a diplomatic/agitator role, which has been the player we just can't keep. :(
  • Reunite with the Rebel Alliance. Do some mix of the above. Alternatively, strike on the ground level with vehicles.
  • Go blockade running. Do Resource Acquisition and Support missions, matching character duties.
  • Rebel cell. On a new planet. In a new system. Again, more of an agitator role. Still....we could join up with one (i.e. two npc's).

Taking availability into account, simple is best. I posted some plothooks just now. Will see what SavBob thinks. Continuing on Darlyn Boda is an option. Caring for the wounded is pretty much a hand-wave. I was thinking of moving onto bigger, more-thrilling, things.

I like the idea of trying to get Anoat as a sector to rise up. How would that work? We have evidence of an Imperial atrocity. Maybe we can go on a mission to get more such evidence? Or to run support for some spies who are trying to get it? Allows us to establish a base somewhere (wherever we feel we have more chance to both remain hidden but also sway the populace). Build that base up. Then do the uprising thing, too.

In the video game, Uprising, various odd groups united to rise up to rebel against the Imperials blockading their sector. (It doesn't really tell you how it turned out!) The group has had contact with various groups: pirates, criminals, rulers, politicians...

Planetary Connections

One idea was to visit a planet in the sector supposedly gassed by the Imperials. Maybe "run support" for some investigators? Naturally, I thought that a pilot and soldier-medic would do well to fly in and out of places, possibly run raids. Rebel Alliance help from outside the sector is out of the question.

We're always missing a face character to be the Agitator or Diplomat to carry out such things. Then again, I could just use Oona Baraitano as an npc. She needs an escort to meet important people. Cpt. Kettel, out. Oona in.

Rise up? Well, we acquired some loyalty from a political figure on Ione. Ran across some outlaw allies at Ison Station. I can come up with another faction to contact and possibly unite.

Regarding the Red Dawn and the stranded GR-75 Transport, I see that the GR-75 has better sensors and shields than the YT-2000 we have. Our only upgrade to the Red Dawn has been an Ion Gun. HPs 1 of 5. I would suggest converting these to attachments "Boosted Sensors" (+1hp) and "Reinforced Shield Generators" (+2hps). If so, Vesper can make some "mod" rolls for us. Setback for switched items between mismatched ships.

Boosted Sensors: +1 range band. MOD: +1 additional range band. HARD+SB Mechanics check.
(Red Dawn has Short Range. This could go to Medium and maybe Long)

Re Shield Gen: +1 to Shield zone (front or rear). MODS: two +1 mods, each to either front or rear. HARD+SB check ImageImageImageImage + DAUNTING+SB ImageImageImageImageImage check. (If she fails the first, then can try the 2nd Mod at only HARD+SB)

I appreciate your notices (in all games). Life can be busy! This one is Vesper & Helios, only. But I think we can tread water for a while. I was working up Oona as an NPC to help us do some diplomatic missions.

Vesper is our default 'mechanic'. I have some mod rolls above to modify the Red Dawn with parts from the scrapped Bright Hope (GR-75).

Yeah, I'm happy to do some background stuff like mods and so on through the holidays in the hopes Rider can get back to full(er) steam then.
