It's good to see people we know here :-)

I guess since this is traveller, both Elsbeth and I have a "connection"
W00t for free skills!

Hi there
Another new guy here, I'm checking out all these races and trying to figure out what to do.

I'm not familiar with the world. What version of traveler are we using?

It's a homebrew universe.

And we're using mongoose traveller, 1st edition.

I can start anytime you have a rough character in mind...or you can start RP at the local watering hole if you have the basics worked out...such as careers etc.

T'risa and crew are new arrivals on "vacation" to ay low and stay out of sight for a while..and assist locals with more frequent raids by Onai, and Q'sa raiders/pirates/slavers.

The system has a pretty solid self defense squadron,but several outling systems have been hardpressed to repell attacks in the past few months.

new players have arrived here by chance, or have gotten work with the local colonial assistance operations. An outfit named CASAR is always recruiting and with wardrums beating everyone is hiring new employees who can handle a gun or handle..other than normal work assignments.

and since Valkiir run the planet there are always some sort of mischief to get into...they are laid back like that...as long as you dont cause any trouble locally they dont care what your up to...

Incidentally....in Traveller Mongoose edition you can get free skills by establishing connections to other PCs....

Typically it's something we would have taught each other

Anyone wish to form a connection?

I'm fine with it. Lynn's been travelling around quite a bit so she could have met people in all sorts of places.

I'll start working on my character in about an hour from now, and will be better able to work connections in from there.

Well, for the benefit of anyone considering a connection T'risa is a social leader tactician type. She's a battle witch (In this setting that's someone who predicts battles and tactics using precognition and telepathy to make things go better for us).

She's been an agent which didn't go well and joined the Navy before being exiled from the Tau Imperium for trading in genetic material. She's been a Colonial Marshal now for a time.

TBH most of T'risa terms could be considered as having rolled the mishap table.

Well for the sake of finding new connections and making the most of this my character is a retired star marine and law enforcement.   Would have lots of exposure both in military and civilian life.

Think agent Gibbs from NCIS :)

Wow this character generator takes you places you wouldn't expect.

I'm looking at mustering out of the Imperial navy as a legendary captain.

I started in engineering and my path just went kind of crazy. I might have served as a captain or senior officer on a drop ship and I was an aide to a senior admiral so I could easily have connections with military and agents if you were involved with some hush hush dealings with the navy. I'll hopefully finish my last tour tonight and ill post a full bio so people have spots to jump in if they want to make a connection.

Tell me about it! ;)

I was ejected from the Navy after one term and bad luck followed me to the Scouts!
I guess I can say that at least I survived all this.
I'm an ex-Fighter Pilot turned Explorer who has been here, there and everywhere, and have a Rival, an Alien Contact and an Enemy - hasn't been dull!

Re: OOC: Chat and Silliness welcomed
From a previous game, I've found it easier to make connections when everyone knows how many terms everybody has served and what Events they have had, and can then match up. For instance:-

1 Term ago - Scouts: Exploration
Your scout ship is one of the first on the scene to rescue survivors of a destroyed freighter. Gained an Enemy.

2 Terms ago - Scouts: Exploration
You spend a great deal of time on the fringes of known space. Gained Contact in an alien race and one level in any skill of choice.

3 Terms ago - Scouts: Exploration
Life Event. Betrayal. Gained a Rival.

4 Terms ago - Navy: Flight
Disaster! Mishap - you are blamed for the deaths of several crew members.

Perhaps the GM can set up a thread for discussions?

Hi everyone!  Looking forward to RPing with you.

Elsbeth is also interested in connections (she has one with T'risa already, as they go back a number of years - the previous Pax Bellum game..:D).  She has the following (equivalent - since she is converted character) terms:
    Last Term
    Marine/Ground Assault (CMC)
    Not sure - probably Black Ops or Planetary Assault or Trapped Behind Enemy lines...

    2 Terms Ago
    Marine/Ground Assault (CMC)
    Improved Relationship - Romance (Balkiir)

    3 Terms Ago
    Rogue/Enforcer
    Bloodsports and a Prison Escape

    4 Terms Ago
    Agent/Corporate (Bodyguard)
    Mishap - Severely Injured (Incident on Enchoa Rhi/Jannissary Station, charge killed)

Skill Packages
As a group, select one of the following skill packages, which are
collections of basic skills you will use while adventuring and
travelling. Taking a skill package ensures that your group will at
least have basic competency in the situations that will come up in
the game. When you have collectively decided which skill package is
most suitable for the campaign you want to play, each player takes
it in turns to select an item from the package. Keep going until all
skills have been selected.


Traveller Skill Package: This is an all-round skill package, good for
a campaign where the characters are trading one week and blowing
things up the next.
Pilot (any) 1, Sensors 1, Comms 1, Gunner (any) 1, Gun Combat
(any) 1, Persuade 1, Stealth 1, Medic 1.

Mercenary Skill Package: This skill package focuses on ground
combat, and is obviously aimed at combat-heavy games.
Sensors 1, Comms 1, Medic 1, Leadership 1, Heavy Weapons (any) 1,
Gun Combat (any) 1, Gun Combat (any) 1, Stealth 1.

Starship Skills Package: This is for campaigns where the characters
will spend almost all their time on their spacecraft.
Pilot (any) 1, Gunner (any) 1, Engineer (any) 1, Mechanic 1, Sensors
1, Medic 1, Comms 1, Astrogation 1.

My vote is for the Mercenary package :)
