This is for that

There is a character generator listed under RTJ/chargen for anyone that needs it.

Printed the adventure, getting it bound at Staples this weekend. NOW I can READ it!

Nice!

Any tips we should know regarding essential skills?

Carver was (is) aiming for an electronics expert, but ended up with both some electronics and engineering skills (for now Power, Life Support).

Hi guys,

glad to play here.

I've tried to use the given character generator, but I think it is broken.

It gave me:
Strength: 6
Dexterity: 9
Endurance: 10
Intellect: 12
Education: 12
Social: 11
Psi: 0

Do you want me to reroll?

You could be a back-up engineer.

The Captain is covered, he just needs a crew. He has the March Harrier and a subsidized contract. The 70% of the year working the contract is now done and the ship is in for overhaul. When the overhaul is done, you're free to explore or trade as you will except the 50% off the top that goes to the contractor.

The ship is in the maps, two of them, an outside view and a deck plan.

My God Florence, she is a Goddess!

Damn, and I thought I had a good array, nice!

Edit: Oh, I still have a choice between 2 ship shares, or a ship's boat. The safe choice are the shares, but can we do anything interesting with the boat?

  Khuevaengh is an established Electronics expert. Not so much computers/remote ops, but when it comes to Comms and Sensors he's hard to beat.


  Using the ship shares: the problem with that is that we don't actually own the subsidized merchant (that's kind of the point of the ship). I think there's something about this in one of the JTAS releases that Mongoose did but I'd have to go look it up.

Okay, looking at the MgT article about Fat Traders...


The ship shares can be used in one of two ways: in lots of five they can either add more weeks to the crew's control of the ship/route, or to increase the revenue share that the crew gets. Most of the PCs probably don't have 5+ shares individually but they could be pooled for the purpose.

Revenue/expense-wise, the owner takes 50% of the revenue but also covers the mortgage, so the crew only needs to pay operating/maintenance/fuel out of pocket. The other 50% of the revenue can be used at the crew's discretion but an operating fund has to be maintained out of this, at the very least.

If it's on the 15 (or more, with shares) week 'free' period then it can go wherever, but it has to be back in its assigned area at the end of that period.


The other requirement is that the crew have to pass vetting: anyone with a rogue/prisoner career background won't be accepted unless someone can forge the records (not easy), and Mishaps that kicked someone out of a career also act as a disqualifier unless someone pulls off a good enough Admin to show that it was all just a terrible misunderstaanding. They also want at least one person with 3+ terms in Merchant.

Re: OOC Chatter (1)
  If we're operating a Fat Trader for the adventure then other ship-ownership results would probably turn into 'pension' income (25,000/year per time rolled), as ships that you partly own but are operating under someone else at present.

  Then again, if we end up with an entire ship of some sort then the adventure could probably be rewritten around it. A lab ship isn't going to do much trading though.
