The great tragedy of this setting is that we can't use IC Game of Thrones references to refer to the dwarf as Tyrion, the Imp, etc.  :P

Anders Mattson:
"You want a machinegun along, captain, or should take a rifle?" The Finn could handle both though he was a bit better shot with the rifles.

If Rae will let us resolve this now I would suggest that Anders bring the MG.

Ta,

Andy.



EDIT - I presume that Gryzyech is with Konrad's team.

Re: The Mess (General OOC)

OK, back and forth dialogue could take ages to work out if we reciprocally post a line at a time so I took a couple of liberties with the last post. If any of you would like to speak with Sir Cwik before he heads back to his castle, feel free. I'll most likely be able to post responses fairly promptly.

Otherwise, operate under the following. Assuming that you're going to take Sir Cwik up on his invitation, you have about 8 hours to work in the ferry yard. I'd like a rough idea of what your PC would like to do during that time- I'll make the appropriate rolls and let you know the results of your labors. After that, anyone who would like to attend will head to the castle for the promised feast.

On the other hand, if you want to bounce and leave Swiecie without treating with Sir Petr, that's fine too. You don't have to accept Cwik's invitation.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

P.S. I'm trying to reconstruct how much gold the Krolowa has on board (aside from personal stocks). There's been a couple of mentions of gold bullets but I can't remember any details of such. Help?

Re: The Mess (General OOC)
Tirion, which sounds the same is a Welsh Girl's name which means kind or gentle which suggests that George didn't know it existed when he gave the Imp the name. Unless he's really, really ironic...

Re: The Mess (General OOC)

Next turn goes up tomorrow. If y'all want to do any salvage and/or improvements to the tug's defenses, intended actions need to be posted IC (or they don't happen). I'll also need a decision on whether you plan to accept the castellan's invitation to dinner.

Hi all!


You could, just - the first novel was published in RL in 1996.

Rae, can anyone hear the lone man's shouting and is it in English?  I presume so but wanted to check.

Re: The Mess (General OOC)

Folks on the northern end of the complex can hear, barely, him yelling, but can't make out the language he's using or specifically what he's saying. It's more of a meta post, to let y'all know that this is a PC intro scenario.

Re: The Mess (General OOC)
Thanks.

Studying the map further there is a building to the west of Jan's position.  Is that a ruin?

There are also several boats due east of his position on the satellite image at what appears to be a secondary dock.  Are those there in the game and, if they are, what condition are they in?

Ta,

Andy

Building is destroyed. There's a barge at the spot you mentioned, but it's 3/4 submerged and orange with rust.

Minh Quyen:
Quyen remains still and watches the difficult to see action north of her position. "I do not have a radio." she informs Thijs. She didn't think he had one either... but someone in the shore party would come looking to see what was happening. Until then she just kept low.

Jinny, you must have missed this but Jan instructed Quyen to get a radio out of the stores in message #24 of the IC thread.

Jelena Tamm is coming along nicely; if you guys want someone who can fix radio, she's your woman.

Re: The Mess (General OOC)

Good news, Jelena.

@All: I'm trying to be less anal retentive. It's a character flaw that masquerades as a virtue so it's particularly hard for me to reign in at times. I don't mind if y'all use colors other than blue for your PC's dialogue, but I must insist that you use the monotype font for radio transmissions. This keys players whose PCs have radio access, but who may not be reading others' posts carefully, that their PC can "hear" that particular dialogue. That, and please italicize text spoken in languages other than English.

Thanks, all!

Apologies Rae.  I usually try and do that for radio transmissions but, my shortness of time to post I completely forgot.  I have edited my post to reflect Robert's radio transmission.

I also make it a general rule in games I run that any posts in non-English should have an English translation with them for the benefit of the GM and other players.

I also generally mis-quote the original Casino Royale novel when I do that, but that's just me.

Any suggestions on what to spend my $5000 of equipment funds on?

Re: The Mess (General OOC)
Does anyone have any idea what the Junior Weapons Sergeant's callsign numbering would be for an ODA?  i.e. Kewlword Integer Integer?  Nomad One Five, Hades Seven Four, etc.  I'm lost in the sauce on this one.

Re: The Mess (General OOC)
Advising you on what to buy would be metagaming a bit as we're always short and having a nice injection would probably make it too easy.

I'd suggest you get what you'd need to survive and then anything cool you want. if you have money left trade goods would be good: that means we can buy what we need later, maybe, but it won't be easy.

I know this is metagaming but Mariusz is dangerously low on paprika and marjoram.

Whoa.. for a second I didn't realize Mark's message was about Jelena and I thought Wow... low on integers and whole numbers?  An injection of two digits might make things too easy?  Damn, the struggle is real with this game!  :P

Going to have more caffeine now.
