Re: Varca, BB Nova, Krssh, Ingrid, and Zhouth

So, umm, can we move this ahead? We've got everyone together and we know where we're going next, with at least a vague plan in place...

...also, RPOL is shouting about the thread becoming too long again!

Let it scream, it can go up to 1250 posts I think! :D

At least, we've managed to go over it in other game iirc, though they might have hard coded it since.

Wasn't there a Valerian in Star Wars or something? It's probably the SW fan talking.

I watched the SW 4 and 5 movies back in the 70's when they came out, he ruined the story completely and Disney only made it worse. I read the book first.

Agreed on E1-3, but I did enjoy Rogue 1, E5 is still my favorite though..!

Rayjaynul Brown:
OOC: When was the last time the Ship's Locker was updated anyway?


Theodore McFarlane:
In reply to Rayjaynul Brown (msg # 569):

It wasn't updated, we had a few initial purchases and that was it.


     Yeah, Varca was/is hoping to get someplace--well, like Theev, actually--where we can purchase...heavier...weapons to add to the Ship's Locker/Armory.

     Of course, that plan also pre-supposes that we'll have Money to purchase weapons with!

     Y'know, that reminds me ... we did tell all you Newbies that we do not, actually, possess any funds to Pay any of you with ... didn't we ...?

The ship's fund can cover our existing staff for another... 2 months, roughly, along with fuel expenses. (Existing staff being those people recruited post-Drinax). Anyone new who is meant to be paid would require a top-up.

Ghent Bel-Andis:
this is my first character, and I never got the pistol at creation. I kept being successful at the merchant life, so I kept rolling. Never had combat in Traveller either, so... I'll do my best and re-roll if I have too. LOL</Orange>


Hey, neither Zhouth or Ingrid have any gun skills either. Zhouth does have some unarmed training, but if you've read back over the game any, you'll know that it isn't exactly his thing.

If you were a merchant marine then you may have picked up Athletics. Athletics (Dexterity) does help with throwing things, whether that be knives or grenades or dwarves.

We've good for two months without any, and that number-crunch assumed that we jumped twice a month with refined fuel purchases - if we skim/crack/siphon or buy unrefined then it's effectively a refund to the ship's account every time.

Now that I think about it, we used a secret stash on the way here, didn't we? So that's one refill's worth back. (20500 cr, counting jump and power plant.)

Keep in mind that if we pull off this mission we'll be several million richer. And, depending on how things turn out, we may have an extra ship or two as well.

That would be good, but we might need some coin until then though. It won't happen overnight.

Fat Oleb gets what? 10%? Or does he get 90% and us 10%? We do all the work and put ourselves in harms way and he gets rich.

Re: Say WHAT, now?!

He gets 10%. Standard tithe. Also, we're using his ship.

Given how Rao presented things that 10% won't be spent on partying; it's a "get the Palace back into functioning shape and establish a diplomatic network" fund, so that Drinaxi Peace Corps that Varca was talking about will be getting some of it.
