[Lazarus] 10:14 am: You all narrowly escaped
[Lazarus] 10:14 am: He linked up with his old ship from the war and took off for parts unknown
[Lazarus] 10:15 am: You are three hours out of Hera at the moment, with no cargo and no set course
[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: Throol has left at 10:15 am+
[Gabel] 10:16 am: (Right now i have no map no nothing all i got is my online profile im sitting on a fresh windows install which just completed)
[monster87] 10:16 am: (to the others) "That was an interesting fellow, that Black Fox"

[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: Throol has entered at 10:16 am+
[Throol] 10:16 am: Sorry about that - computer's being a shit today, keeps locking up and disconnecting
[Gabel] 10:17 am: Heh i see im not the only one with problems
[Gabel] 10:17 am: :)
[Gabel] 10:18 am: Ted spent most of his career running from alliance high command during the war old habits die hard i guess
[monster87] 10:19 am: "I guess.."
[monster87] 10:19 am: "So what's next? I hope we can find another mission like that"
[Lazarus] 10:20 am: Well you do know there were other blockade runners during the war, but only Fox acheived legendary status
[Gabel] 10:21 am: Stuff like thats bound to get ya killed in the long run boomer but at least it got us paid for a change
[monster87] 10:21 am: "Although I'm not one for the shootin' that happened, I liked the careful sneakin and gettin Ted's stuff back ;) Gotta admit it was a pretty nice adrenaline kick"
[Gabel] 10:22 am: Never had much for all that sneaky business myself
[Throol] 10:22 am: LOL love the new Chuck Norris WoW commercial
[monster87] 10:23 am: "Hah yeah our captain is more the intimidatin' type: GIMME THAT OR ELSE!!" * laughing *
[Lazarus->starjunky] 10:23 am: If the captain asks, the nearest planet is Regina, three days away at normal burn
[starjunky] 10:23 am: "missed all the shottin' - at least I got some book time in Engineerin.
[starjunky->Lazarus] 10:24 am: oke
[monster87] 10:24 am: "Why you readin' up on Engineerin? Isn't that my job around here :)?"
[Gabel] 10:24 am: Just part of a long career i guess boomer *sighs* anyho we better plot our next course
[starjunky] 10:25 am: "well, if you get hurt or somethin, be good to know a lil as backup
[monster87] 10:25 am: "Yeah true. I know, on the next few days - let's switch roles. I'll be the pilot and you can be the engineer"
[starjunky] 10:25 am: "an maybe known a bit about what's under the hood help my flyin
[monster87] 10:26 am: "Good to sit down a few days after this adventure"
[starjunky] 10:26 am: "now don't get defensive...
[monster87] 10:26 am: "That was a serious proposal!
[monster87] 10:27 am: "Don't you thihnk I can fly this thing? Because you bet I can
[monster87] 10:27 am: "And I'm sure youll do fine on the techs
[Gabel] 10:27 am: Plot a course for Boros Alex we need to restock on fuel and parts soon and boros is an excellent place to do it
[starjunky] 10:27 am: "oh *mumbles never good a figurin' women*
[starjunky] 10:27 am: "Aye Cap'n, Boros it is
[monster87] 10:27 am: "Boros..."
[Throol] 10:27 am: Ian is in his cabin cleaning his guns.
[starjunky] 10:28 am: "we make any moneys with Fox? runnin low on smokes money
[Gabel->Lazarus] 10:28 am: Btw i already had the boros part figured out beforehand
[monster87] 10:28 am: * face changes *
[Lazarus->Gabel] 10:28 am: ok
[monster87] 10:28 am: (anyone who's looking it's sadness, doubt and anticipation mixed together)
[Gabel->Lazarus] 10:28 am: (I was looking into the trait Hidey Hole) I figured i would get it but i will do it later
[Gabel->Lazarus] 10:29 am: Cause i used to Salvage back after i quit the military service
[Gabel->Lazarus] 10:29 am: I figured we would have setup shop in boros as its an easy place for salvage
[monster87->Lazarus] 10:29 am: I'm thinkin my father is still there and I haven't paid him a visit in a really long time - Boomer is thinkin that it's about time. But their last partin wasn't very well. Father wasn't happy with his daughter going against the law and robbin banks and hacking stuff..
[Gabel] 10:29 am: What ya on about Alex ya already got paid
[Gabel] 10:30 am: Whats wrong Boomer you seem a little off
[Lazarus->starjunky] 10:30 am: you can let the captain know Boros is five days away compared to Regina being three days away
[monster87->Lazarus] 10:30 am: and my father is livin and workin on the alliance cruisers that are being built in orbit, probably a nice setting :)
[starjunky] 10:30 am: (hmm, did not note any reduction i my ship ops loan from last session, how much of 565 loan was paid back?
[monster87] 10:31 am: "I was born there you know and I haven't visited for a long time. I should though.. want to straighten things out with my dad..
[Lazarus->monster87] 10:31 am: k
[starjunky] 10:31 am: "by the way, Cap'n, Boros is 5 days out, Regina is only 3 if it makes a diff
[Gabel] 10:32 am: 220 Credits wasnt it ?
[Lazarus] 10:33 am: you got 11 credits and 200 platinum from Fox
[Gabel] 10:33 am: Well if its going to cause you grief boomer we can land on Regina instead
[Lazarus] 10:33 am: 1100
[Gabel] 10:33 am: We already split the money 6 ways
[Gabel] 10:33 am: Last game
[Gabel] 10:33 am: I got a double share for ships repairs,food, so on
[monster87] 10:34 am: "We can go to Regina instead.. but I should talk to dad sometime.."
[starjunky] 10:34 am: (ok, so will reduce my loan amount by 220 then? is that right?
[Gabel] 10:34 am: Lets head out to Regina then Alex
[Throol] 10:34 am: Oh so we each add 200 plat and 11 creds to sheets?
[Gabel] 10:34 am: No
[starjunky] 10:34 am: "Roger Boss, Regina it is
[Gabel] 10:35 am: The total of the money was split 6 ways
[monster87] 10:35 am: "Can I steer her Alex?"
[Gabel] 10:36 am: 220 each
[starjunky] 10:36 am: "Sure Boomer
[Gabel] 10:36 am: So you all got 220 creds
[monster87] 10:36 am: "You can
[starjunky] 10:36 am: (ok thanks Gabe
[monster87] 10:37 am: * sits at the controls, puts it on manual and has some fun with the ship *
[Gabel] 10:37 am: I got 440 an extra 220 for future ship repairs and food (Stuff for the ship) (This way i wont have to loan from people all the damn time)
[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: Yasul has left at 10:37 am+
[Throol] 10:37 am: kk
[Lazarus] 10:38 am: Once the course is decided and plotted, the Fire Angel flies on oblivious to destination
[Gabel] 10:38 am: *Returns to his cabin*
[Gabel] 10:38 am: *Grabs a book and hits the galley*
[Lazarus] 10:38 am: Travel time turns out to be a shade over 75 hours with the ship arriving at 2pm local time
[starjunky] 10:39 am: "discusses nerd stuff related to plasma flux couplings with Boomer as she flys
[Throol] 10:40 am: Ian heads over to the galley to talk with the captain.
[monster87] 10:41 am: * talking and having a lot of fun with Alex, while testing every button on the controls and every possible flight manouver she can think of *
[Lazarus] 10:41 am: (Are you actually piloting, or doing simulations?)
[monster87] 10:42 am: actually piloting ;) so I'm slowing the voyage down, although I'll tire of it soon enough and set it back on auto pilot
[Throol] 10:42 am: "So, what's up next?"
[Lazarus] 10:43 am: okay then. Roll ship's agility d4 + d2 piloting. rolling ones on both dice is bad
[monster87] 10:43 am: I do have piloting d4? so what do I roll exactly?
[Gabel] 10:44 am: *Looking over his book at ian* Refuel and repair at Regina and if we can find some work if not we hit boros i have some salvage contacts there that might give us some jobs.
[Lazarus] 10:44 am: okay then roll 2d4
[monster87] 10:44 am: starts rolling some dice: (2d4)
[monster87] 10:44 am:

-> 2d4 (1,3 = 4)

[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: Daenon has entered at 10:44 am+
[Lazarus] 10:44 am: Hello Deanon
[Throol] 10:45 am: "Contacts! Fantastic, people who are known."
[Daenon] 10:45 am: Hi there.
[Lazarus] 10:45 am: The piloting goes rough on the ship and the crew, but no serious damage
[Lazarus] 10:45 am: starts rolling some dice: (d20)
[Lazarus] 10:45 am:

-> 1d20 (14)

[Throol] 10:46 am: "We should buy some lucky horseshoes, rabbits feet, whatever works. We could really use some better luck, man." *looks downcast*
[Lazarus] 10:46 am: but all the additional course and speed changes adds 14 hours to the flight
[Lazarus] 10:46 am: meaning you arrive at 4am
[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: Daenon has left at 10:46 am+
[starjunky] 10:46 am: "guess its better to learn flyin' in the middle of the Black versus in a dogfight, Eh Boomer?
[monster87] 10:46 am: * afterwards * "Woah look at that, I had no idea I've gotten so far of course.. I'll correct the course - sorry Alex :P *
[monster87] 10:47 am: "heh it seemed easier on the planet last time with the farmers ;)"
[monster87] 10:47 am: "Well I'll let you back to it then, when you want to try out engineering next time gimme a call.
[Gabel] 10:47 am: Well we have had a bit of a tough time but it cant all be good
[Throol] 10:48 am: "Can't all be good, but man.... this has been the pits so far."
[Gabel] 10:49 am: Well except the part were we got had on a job and almost eaten by well reavers id say our lucks getting better.
[Lazarus] 10:50 am: Flaring in for a landing at the port of Addleborough, Alex lands the ship at the designated stall and begins the shut down sequence
[Throol] 10:52 am: "Can't never tell when a lead's good or bad, can't hardly find work anywhere... even the merc business is slow. Enough to make a man think about gettin' a regular gig."
[Gabel] 10:53 am: Well ian theres always work to be had on the rim or the boarderworlds problem is who to trust in the end
[monster87] 10:56 am: I'm going to eat with my gf for a bit - I'll be doing engineering or something - be back 30 min or somethin
[Gabel] 10:57 am: But i think we better Refuel and restock on food if you and alex can hit the cortex and the streets maybe there might be some work we can do here.
[Gabel] 10:57 am: While me and boomer go restock on supplies
[Throol] 10:58 am: "Yeah, not sure there's much point though."
[Lazarus] 10:59 am: As it is so early, aside from the port authroity doing a quick inspection and collecting the 10 credit landing fee, there isn't much going on in the port at the moment
[Gabel] 11:00 am: I tell the port authority to fill us up as well
[starjunky] 11:02 am: " I need to replenish my cig supply, anybody want to tag along?
[Gabel] 11:02 am: Well im going shopping anyway how about you tag along with me and boomer can tag along with Ian
[Lazarus] 11:02 am: Topping off the ship will cost 135 credits
[Gabel] 11:03 am: I pay them
[Lazarus] 11:04 am: the techs roll out the umblicals and the fueling is done fairly quickly for such an early time of the morning
[Lazarus] 11:04 am: You food stocks are also getting fairly thin as well
[Gabel] 11:05 am: Yeah im going to hit the shops and stuff once they open im just gonna have a look around find some places to shop then come back to the ship
[Gabel] 11:05 am: (Unless their already open)
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:05 am: I wont take any money with me other then a few credits like 5 or so
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:06 am: John never carries alot of hard cash with him
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:06 am: ok
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:06 am: not much credit outside of the Core though
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:07 am: I know but in places he dont know he would rather get a lay of the land
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:07 am: so to speak
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:07 am: So he knows where to go directly
[Lazarus] 11:07 am: The port is very deserted and only a handful of to go type restuarants are open
[Throol] 11:07 am: "I think I'm gonna go get blitzed. Got a preference for where?"
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:08 am: How much money would i need for a months supply of canned foodstuffs
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:08 am: and 1 week supply of fresh foodstuffs
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:08 am: (Fresh install i dont have a pdf reader installed atm)
[Lazarus] 11:09 am: One thing that is a constant in all spaceports, even the small ones, is a bar, but at 4AM, even it is closed
[Gabel] 11:10 am: Im just gonna take a look around for some shops (Mostly ship parts and food and general goods maybe clothing stores)
[Gabel] 11:10 am: (I know their closed im just taking a look around)
[Throol] 11:12 am: Ian looks around for a late night off-sale store.
[Gabel] 11:13 am: I ask alex if he wants to join and ian
[Lazarus] 11:13 am: He can find a convenience store that seels beer
[Lazarus] 11:14 am: sells
[starjunky] 11:14 am: "sure, maybe I can find some low-end smokes till more stores open
[Throol] 11:15 am: "Sounds like a plan."
[Gabel] 11:15 am: Guess they will sell smokes in here Alex i think ian wants some drinks
[Throol] 11:15 am: Ian looks for strong but decent stuff.
[Lazarus] 11:16 am: Ian can find some fair stuff for a couple credits
[starjunky] 11:17 am: ( spekaing of lunch, need about 10 mins to whip something up myself...
[Throol] 11:18 am: "Ok time for some matching munchies." He grabs a couple cases of beer, and heads to look for burritos and snackage.
[Lazarus] 11:19 am: You complete your 'recon' of the area and return to the ship, Ian in about 30 minutes, John in about an hour
[Gabel] 11:22 am: Im just gonna kip til the shops open
[monster87] 11:23 am: * back, where am I? *
[Lazarus] 11:23 am: The port slowly starts to come alive as the sun rises, first delivery types and then early opening workers, and finally the rest of the employees
[Lazarus] 11:23 am: by 7AM the port is alive and many of the kiosk type vendors are hawking their wares
[Throol] 11:24 am: Soon as he gets back, Ian starts hitting the beer and snackage hard in the gallley.
[Lazarus] 11:26 am: unless he decides to ease up Ian is well and truly hammered by 7AM
[Lazarus] 11:26 am: Roll Vitality+Vitality
[Gabel] 11:28 am: So boomer you want to hit the shops im gonna get some food and stuff you are welcome to tag along
[Throol] 11:28 am: starts rolling some dice: (2d8)
[Throol] 11:28 am:

-> 2d8 (7,6 = 13)

[Throol] 11:29 am: Ian is drinking water too, to avoid a hangover later
[Lazarus] 11:30 am: Ian is good and drunk, but manages to hold down the booze and the snacks
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:30 am: i grab 50 credits and tuck them neatly in my inner vest pocket (Not my duster but my vest)
[Lazarus] 11:31 am: When John reenters the galley, he finds Ian extremely drunk
[Gabel] 11:31 am: Well Ian im guessing you wont be joining us outside today *sighs*
[monster87] 11:31 am: "Yeah sure, I'll come Cap'n"
[Throol] 11:32 am: "Hehe more fun bein' here, and I'll make just as much money!!"
[monster87] 11:32 am: * pulls a nasty face to Ian *
[monster87] 11:32 am: "What's with him?"
[Gabel] 11:33 am: Sleep it off Ian were going to get supplies.
[starjunky] 11:33 am: (back
[Lazarus] 11:37 am: You exit the ship and after less than an hour, you can easily find food, the question is what do you wish to purchase? Fresh, Canned, or protein? and in what quantities?'
[Gabel] 11:38 am: (check Pm laz)
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:38 am: I want a months supply of canned food and a weeks supply of fresh food delivered to my ship
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:40 am: A total of 140 credits
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:41 am: 100 for the month of canned for five and 40 for a week of fresh for five
[monster87] 11:41 am: ...
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:42 am: Really ? you dont go by the pdf on prices ?
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:43 am: That's the prices right out of the book
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:43 am: 5 credits per week per person for canned
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:43 am: * credits for fresh
[starjunky] 11:43 am: (years of smoking left me with little taste prefernces, will defer to Cap'n and Boomer on foddstuffs
[monster87] 11:44 am: I guess I'll use my womanly and cooking skills as a base for choosing a nice mixture of fresh, canned and protein food
[Lazarus] 11:44 am: The merchant points out the standard spacer's supplies of canned foods of various types. the fresh food will have to come from kiosks, but does look fairly good
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:44 am: 8 credits
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:44 am: Ah yeah sorry i was looking at the wrong thing
[monster87] 11:45 am: I want to once again create a good fresh meal as our arrival feast
[monster87] 11:45 am: and of course cap'n is payin ;0
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:45 am: Can we say i took 150 cash with me then ? (I went by 50 cause i figured thats what the cost would be lol)
[Gabel->Lazarus] 11:46 am: If so i pay the man if not i just go get the cash then pay the man/woman
[Gabel] 11:46 am: Take a months supply of canned food and a weeks supply of fresh food
[Lazarus] 11:47 am: THe bill comes to 140 Credits for everything
[Gabel] 11:47 am: I pay the man/woman
[Lazarus->Gabel] 11:48 am: sure, no prob onhaving the cash
[Lazarus] 11:48 am: You take your merchandise back to the ship and can now think about the most important task before you, finding a job
[monster87] 11:49 am: can I try get a discount like with the last merchant?
[Lazarus] 11:49 am: You can roll alertness + streetwise or Intelligence + Knowledge while you are out and about. Ian if you try, you are -2 steps to attributes
[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: shadovar has left at 11:49 am+
[Lazarus] 11:50 am: You can always try
[Gabel] 11:50 am: starts rolling some dice: (1d8+1d8)
[Gabel] 11:50 am:

-> 1d8 (5)+ 1d8 (6) = 11

[Gabel] 11:50 am: (streetwise)
[monster87] 11:50 am: err what was it again, influence+int with sweet and cheerful?
[monster87] 11:50 am: starts rolling some dice: (1d12+1d10)
[monster87] 11:50 am:

-> 1d12 (4)+ 1d10 (1) = 5

[monster87] 11:51 am: well nvm ;)
[monster87] 11:52 am: can't I combine streetwise with int :P?
[Lazarus] 11:53 am: Looking about, it seems like Regina is like the rest of the planets you've been to. The cargoes are either large and go to contracted shippers or the small ones go to the people with established track records
[Lazarus] 11:54 am: However, John learns of a business owner named Mortdechai Kenner that only awards shipping business to people that he considers to be winners. The eccentric Kenner initially made his money as high-stakes gambler and, in addition to retaining an abiding love for games of chance, feels that fate is the determining factor on whether he does business with someone. Kenner has a cargo of refined molybdenum ingots bound for Three Hills.
[monster87] 11:54 am: can I find out more about this guy with streetwise+int?
[Lazarus] 11:55 am: sure
[monster87] 11:55 am: starts rolling some dice: (1d8+1d12)
[monster87] 11:55 am:

-> 1d8 (2)+ 1d12 (12) = 14

[Lazarus] 11:57 am: Most people like Kenner, but most people think he's a half bubble off. However, he has a sterling rep
[monster87] 11:58 am: "Seems like a good enough guy to talk to Cap'n"
[Gabel] 11:58 am: Im gonna try talk to this kenner about his shipping job if i can
[monster87] 11:58 am: can I go with?
[Gabel] 11:58 am: Sure thing boomer
[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: pruttm has left at 11:58 am+
[Gabel] 11:59 am: But i want alex and ian to stock our foodstuffs in the galley and whatnot
[monster87] 11:59 am: hehe yeah let the men do the work
[Lazarus] 11:59 am: However, before you can leave the ship, you get a wave
[Gabel] 11:59 am: Actualy just alex as i told Ian to sleep it off
[monster87] 11:59 am: we'll go do buisness
[Gabel] 11:59 am: A wave huh
[Gabel] 12:00 pm: And i spesificly tell alex not to let ian touch the damn stuff while hes drunk off his rocker
[Lazarus] 12:00 pm: The message is from Kenner's office. Odd or not, it seems that Kenner is well informed
[Gabel] 12:00 pm: What does the message say ?
[starjunky] 12:00 pm: "no prob Cap'n, I'll keep an eye on Ian
[Lazarus] 12:02 pm: The text only wave states that he has 100 tons of molybdenum, the time requirements for delivery, which the Fire Angel easily meets, and the fact that three other ships will be vying for the cargo
[Lazarus] 12:02 pm: The actual contest will, according to the wave, be taking place on planet and will not involve the contestant’s ships in order to eliminate any speed advantage. The wave lists a starting location in the small town of Rex where the contestants are to meet early next morning. There can be no more than six crew members, they must land no closer than a kilometer from the coordinates and walking the remaining distance on foot, and they made not be armed with anything heavier than a pistol.
[Lazarus] 12:03 pm: The wave makes it crystal clear that any violation of these three rules will immediately disqualify any contestant caught trying to cheat.
[Gabel] 12:04 pm: Sounds a bit iffy to me but what the hells its not as if we are swimming in it right now.

[Lazarus] 12:24 pm: especially for Ian
[Gabel] 12:25 pm: *Chuckles* I dont really i learned at a very young age im a tad bit rusty so to speak i was to busy hating my schooling then to appreciate the art of it *sighs*

[Lazarus] 12:36 pm: The crew loads up on the shuttle and that reminds John that he needs to look to getting the other two shuttles functional
[monster87] 12:36 pm: "Heh, me? I ain't the one frightning even Reavers off like you Cap'n"
[Gabel] 12:36 pm: Id like to think it was on account of alex's mean spirit that them reavers got what came to em
[Lazarus] 12:37 pm: "I'll stay here and keep an eye on things." Ray says as you board. "Wouldn't want to get the job and come back to a missing ship now would we?"
[monster87] 12:37 pm: "Good thinkin"
[Lazarus->monster87] 12:37 pm: since it isn't specialized yet, yes, you can have some limited skill with both instruments
[Gabel] 12:37 pm: (I assumed ray would stay behind like he always does)
[Lazarus] 12:38 pm: (Yeah, but figured I toss that out there for color)
[Lazarus->Gabel] 12:38 pm: ok
[Gabel] 12:38 pm: (Shame that guy who was here last game did not show)
[Lazarus] 12:38 pm: the PCs arrive at 0500 the following morning at the desolate stretch of desert at the base of an escarpment designated in the wave, it is still dark enough that the Crew is unable to see who else is competing for the cargo. The rendezvous point is deserted and the only thing of note in the darkness is the ramshackle remnants of some sort of wooden building long abandoned.
[Gabel->Lazarus] 12:38 pm: I grab my wilderness survival kit some extra ammo
[Lazarus] 12:39 pm: (Yeah. I've got his user name from the log, I can PM him)

[Gabel->Lazarus] 12:45 pm: Btw i took alex because he was not able to join in on the fun last adventure
[Lazarus] 12:45 pm: As you approach, you are startled when three other groups emerge from the shadow of the partially collapsed building, which turns out to be what’s left of a large barn. Boomer jumps back in alarm and freezes in place. Drwing a few chuckles from the others.
[Lazarus] 12:46 pm: "Little jumpy ain't ya Bao bei? Mebbe this job ain't fer ya then. We all wouldn't mind if'n ya went home to Mama and left the work to the real spacers."
[monster87] 12:47 pm: "Afraid to lose from a girl ey?"
[Lazarus] 12:47 pm: "'Girl' is right darlin'" And this elicits even more laughter
[Lazarus] 12:48 pm: however, everyone make another alertness+perception/vision roll

[starjunky] 12:48 pm:

-> 1d6 (3)

[Lazarus] 12:49 pm: As the four crews eye each other suspiciously, everyone jumps when something rolls out of the barn.
[Lazarus] 12:49 pm: The object proves to be a crude robot of about three feet tall; moving about on treads, with one crude grasping arm and a single camera ‘eye’. The robot comes to a stop ten feet from the assembled group and after a couple awkward seconds, a surprisingly clear holographic projection starts.
[starjunky] 12:49 pm: (help me Obi Wan....
[Lazarus] 12:50 pm: The image is of a muscular, light skinned black man in his early 40s of less than average height and sporting a thin moustache smiles at the contestants. There is a short crackle as image begins to speak.
[Lazarus] 12:50 pm: “Good morning. I hope I haven’t startled any of you with my little friend  I am so glad to see that my little contest has generated so much*here. interest. My name is Mortdechai Kenner.
[Lazarus] 12:50 pm: Some people have heard of me, but it is likely that for those of you that have heard of me, that my reputation by them as what bothers to be polite is ‘eccentric’ while for them as can’t be bothered with manners label me a ‘crackpot’ or even worse things outside of my name.
[Lazarus] 12:50 pm: I like to think of myself as having a unique perspective on the ‘Verse we all call our home, but what to call my idiosyncrasies is not what brought you ladies and gentlemen here.
[Serenity - Out of the Ashes - Session 9]: loudriver23 has left at 12:51 pm+
[Lazarus] 12:51 pm: “What brings the crews of the Oddball, Xuan’s Hope,Fire Angel, and Brass Monkey here this fine morning is business, well, the opportunity to earn some business is closer to what a Shepherd might call the truth.
[Lazarus] 12:51 pm: I know all of you have varying degrees of experience, but for those of you that have traveled the Black for more than a day…” At this point, the hologram makes an encompassing sweep of each of the crews; it is only the PC’s imagination if the eyes of Kenner’s image seem to linger on them longer than the other crews before he speaks again
[Lazarus] 12:52 pm: “Know that most businessmen would have you come to some staid office for an equally staid interview. However, as I am not known for being like most businessmen, I like to do things differently. I have always subscribed to the motto that ‘I’d rather be lucky than good’ and I prefer the trait of lucky in all my business associates.
[Lazarus] 12:52 pm: “What I propose is this ladies and gentlemen, in a few minutes, my mechanical associate here will recite a short riddle. This short bit of doggerel will tell you how to find the location of the second piece of the puzzle.
[Lazarus] 12:52 pm: Solving the second clue will allow you to figure out the third and final piece of my little game. Using the three clues, you will be able to find a radio beacon. The first crew to transmit the name of their ship to me wins the cargo. Good luck, good people.”
[Lazarus] 12:53 pm: The crews have just enough time to blink in disbelief before the robot’s speaker crackles again, this time in a synthesized mechanical voice: “She was once the noble queen of Olympus until her tranquility was soaked in blood, while the bountiful yield of this jealous orb will provide direction to the lost.”

[monster87] 1:14 pm: "Heh cap'n you did well for an old timer ;)
[Lazarus] 1:14 pm: Once back on their ship, getting the next clue can use any means necessary. The two of the other three crews reached the rendezvous via shuttle, while the third used their ship, the Oddball, a battered looking Wren-class transport.

[monster87] 1:15 pm: "And you're amazing Alex, weren't many who could keep up with me like that, even back at university
[Lazarus] 1:15 pm: The most direct route to the Hera’s Harvest Tavern is a HARD (11) Ship’s Agility + Piloting roll. However, beating the other three contestants to a landing point is a four way Opposed Roll of the same skill with the winner landing closest to the bar and thus the shortest run to the entrance.
[monster87] 1:15 pm: can I assist in the piloting somehow?
[Gabel] 1:15 pm: Alex you better show me some of your amazing skills here (I want to assist with leadership)
[Lazarus] 1:16 pm: you can take the highest roll between you
[monster87] 1:16 pm: (better save the leadership for something we need to do together)
[Gabel] 1:16 pm: Boomer see if you cant crank up our shuttles speed Ian you better hang on tight
[Lazarus] 1:16 pm: ALex gets his born behind the wheel, so he will roll d8+ d12+d2

[Lazarus] 1:19 pm: Alex is so shocked by the sight, that plucky little bommer manages to take advantage of the disruption and land closest to the bar
[monster87] 1:20 pm: cmon lets be quick, runs out to the tavern
[Lazarus] 1:20 pm: Racing into the bar, the Crew finds that the Hera’s Harvest Tavern turns out to be a fairly nice place and it quite clear that brawling or other disturbances of the peace will not be tolerated.
[Lazarus] 1:20 pm: The barkeeper faces you when they enter, but he does not say anything.
[Lazarus] 1:21 pm: You can hear another ship coming in for a landing
[monster87] 1:22 pm: "Barkeep? You know Kenner? You know this game of his? Is there another clue her?"
[Gabel] 1:22 pm: So we look for the third clue or ask the barkeep if he knows anything about it ?
[monster87] 1:22 pm: * looks around *
[Lazarus] 1:23 pm: At the mention of Kenner's name, he hands you an envelop

[monster87] 1:24 pm: * ready to do the latter *
[Gabel] 1:24 pm: Lets get out of here and open it
[monster87] 1:24 pm: ok so we run back to our shuttle
[Lazarus] 1:24 pm: Once outside, the envelop contains is a single sheet of paper stating: “The sacred chalice of many quests holds the answer for which ye seek. Combine what ye have learned to find thy way.”
