Sorry for the delay. I had a few more RTJs than I expected, so I'm working through them now. Feel free to start chatting and making your characters if you haven't already.

Hello, beautiful people. Im your captain for this here cruiseship. Sit back and relax, and try not to get shot. Stains the interior plating. Hurts resale value.

Hey Captain Vaper, and the beautiful people! (Looks at the rest of the crew...)

Gyro reporting in. Your friendly Verpine Bounty Hunter ready to roll. Ready to try not to get shot too.

May I enquire as to the species, gender and career (smuggler?) of our Captain? Also with the GMs approval we could get some backstory fleshed out? Should be able to fill out the character sheet info tomo...

And ship! We must choose a vessel appropriate to our station.

Male Mirialan Smuggler/Pilot. Yes! Let us flesh!

We need a sexy modded ship. Hopefully the captain agrees!

Hello everyone,

Ip will be your on board doctor/botanist. He is a Gotal Colonist/Doctor. This is my first time with the system, so hopefully i don't mess things up too much!

Welcome Dr Ip.

Alway good to have a Doc on board.

Shall we see if we have anything in common with backstory a and obligation? Gyro has a bounty on his head from some bad luck on The Smugglers Moon. Any of you folks regulars of Hutt space?

Re the Ship; if we are just on the 120k cred limit the YT1300 is an obvious contender. I like the space turtle too but have no idea of its cost!

I meant the gm in my last post, not Captain... obviously... Im the captain and I approve. Lol.

Canvasa has a bounty on his head as well, from a lord on Nar Shadaa.

I took the debt obligation, hopefully thatll help us with getting a good ship.

Canvasa, a Lord on Nar Shadaa eh? Fantastic, you know who? Sounds like we could have had a daring encounter in Hutt space then. So just bouncing ideas: Maybe we stole a Hutts planetary skiff and sold it for parts. Assumed that a bounty had been put on both our heads for it. Actually my bounty was for a previous encounter with Hutt agents that lied and set me up, you may have been identified as the vehicle thief? Or even more comically obscure, the Hutt didn't give a damn about losing the skiff, but Canvasa seducing his favourite Twi-lek dancer as part of the set up completely enraged him?! ;)

Ip, have you got any backstory/obligations you'd like to throw in? Also, Botanist? Awesome! Gyro is vegetarian, living off plants and certain funguses, you have the skills to grow them!

As a group do we have any trade preferences? Slavery and murder are distasteful to Gyro, but a crack pilot and botanist opens the doors to a very capable team of spice runners? (Most spice seems to be plant based so Ip should be good at "quality testing")

Well, in my backstory, the lord in question was human. Canvasa indeed gained his bounty from seducing the lord's daughter.

And his son.

At the same time.

*Cough*

Anyway, we can merge ideas. He had to rush out and escape before the bounty hunter's found him.  He could have stolen the skif and met up with Gyrozil before gaining his debt to buy a new spaceship.

Haha, very good Captain.

How about; Gyro jacks a speeder in the city, takes it elsewhere ready to strip for parts. Canvasa steals the same speeder in a hurry while being chased by the Lords security detachment, Gyro is at this point snoozing in the back. Chase scene follows with goons following in their armoured town car, shooting with the recklessness of those working for the rich and powerful. Canvasa weaves at high speed through traffic, Gyro snapping off blaster shots at the pursuers. Between them they make introductions and lose the tail, sell the speeder for a deposit to secure Canvasa's loan on the ship, and form some kind of trust bond fuelled by desperation?

Well, I say botanist, but I'm not sure I took the right skills for it. I'm new to this game system. But I have Education, Xenology and survival. So, hopefully I know  few plants :)

Anyway, Ip is rather new to the Outer Rim. He has left the core worlds (which I also took knowledge in) in for the sake of research. I took the family obligation. His father suffers from a relatively rare, genetic neurological disease. It affects the Gotal's signature ability to emphatically communicate with one another, drastically impacting their ability to communicate in their native tongue. The damage is done for his father, but he has gone on a search for new, potential preventative treatments. Or at least a way to slow onset/diminish effects.

I imagine Ip as being naturally kind, but gullible, and a bit oblivious to many of the more dangerous realities of the outer rim. So, he probably was looking for a ship for transport and failed to realize Canvasa and Gyro were anything other than reputable ship owners. I thought about also taking sponsership, to represent some organization funding his research, but I wanted to get yall's thoughts on that. I'm not really sure how much we need for whichever ship we want, etc. Again, new to the system.

That sounds great. Nothing fuels a sense of brotherhood and trust like desperation and shady underhandedness performed together.

All in all, Canvasas got a silver tongue and an eye for credits, but he's definitely not one of the bad guys. No slaves. No killing, unless they deserve it. Leave kids alone. Dont be an asshole.

 I think we will all get on swimmingly.

Ip that's a nice backstory. Sounds like you got a decent grasp of it to me!

Don't think you need to worry too much about extra resources for the ship. Likelyhood is our generous and benevolent GM already has gifts aplenty for us there ;)
Taking an extra obligation as sponsorship (debt?) works to me. You could take it as creds (unspent sponsorship) or experience (from studies under sponsorship). If you want it to be a bit darker, could even say the Reputable Medical University is part owned by the Black Sun or similar, a group less patient on the return of its investment...

Anyway sounds like we're a bunch of good guys in a tough Galaxy then. :)

So far at least...

I think i'm going to take a small sponsorship obligation as well. 500 credits is so low! I'll let the DM decided the nature of my sponsor.

I've finalized my character sheet. So what about this ship?  YT-1300 seems by most accounts to be the best starting choice. What are y'all's thoughts?

Also, what if one of you were injured in your daring escape and you had to find a doctor willing to travel, which led you to agreeing to take me aboard in exchange for medical services?

I had requested a YT-2400. We'll see what the GM wants :P

Yes a Firefly style arrangement for a Doc sounds good, friends with an understanding of individual roles within a team. Are we all recent companions or have we a year or two of smuggling/salvage together? I'd propose we have at least six months together, so we can assume to know each other's style and abilities in character, unless of course the GM has a particular introduction planned.

I like both the YT options, And the GHTROC (space turtle). I have none of the rules or costs of the GHTROC, but it looks like a turtle and that's enough for me... :)

In truth if our GM decided we have a shot-up-clapped out piece of junk on its last legs I'd still be happy. Just gives more opportunity to role play the desperation of getting her "ship shape" again.

And no one will steal it ;)

Well then we wouldnt have a game premise :P

And I care what she looks like. She's technically gonna be my baby. Gotta take care of her.

Also, I think we should know each other for a while, Gyro, and Ip be a more recent addition, especially if Ip wants to play more to the idea that he doesn't know about the smuggling bit of our job. It's not like we'd be actively trying to hide it from our fellow crewman.

Oh I'm quite on board (ah ha ha...  sorry) with the taking care of her. Looks like I am the proxy ships engineer unless we get a specialist, so taking care of the baby is going to be a big deal for Gyro. Actually dealing with the horrors of gunfire/asteroids/crash landings on her integrity n pretty looks could be a lot of fun. Also like the prospect of modding the baby so she makes even the Corellians jealous!

Like the idea of Ip being more recently added, but already very trusted. How about something like a rare trip to the mid rim to pick up a cargo of stolen meds destined for somewhere pretty bleak in the outer rim like Ryloth. We take a few passengers as a cover story. Sadly the Imperial customs arrive all threatening like, the talking goes sour and we are quickly fleeing for the ship. I get badly hit covering the rear while Canvasa is getting her ready for take off. The kind Dr Ip saves Gyro after we are safely in hyperspace, and sees us as the maybe more ethically minded smuggling outfit...

I looked through the shops some more and I like the Space Turle and the one that you requested Canvassa. I'm just hoping our faithful DM is stil around...

Sad to see the game stuck high n dry

Guys you might try keeping tabs on the FFG forums. It can take a while but if you wait, some good pbp games do come up.
