Corsair's idea sounds about right.

Mariah wants to find a doctor anyway, I think she'll be good with Bailey offering them a place on the ship. Or really any long-term passenger that could pay or work thier way on the ship, though she would ultimately be in charge of whether they could actually stay.

And yes, we can keep Heinrich.

Should teh new doctor be one of the ones the Marshal was looking for (it being probably a British port, teh Marshal naturally would be out ofr his actual jurisdiction, I would think.)?

I Figured I ought to make a sheet for Heinrich:
Name: Heinrich Ayuuto
Age: 22
Sex: Male

History: Born in Germany; Biological fathe rdied in a freak railway accident. Mother remarried, to a Japanese minor public official. Heinrich thus has been raised in a Japanese household, and is rather quirky as a result.

Skills:Astrogation, some piloting, basic officer-candidacy type skills; is a dead shot with a revolver, and even better with a scoped rifle. Is a formidable swordsman with a katana.
Weapons and gadgets: service revolver, Mauser Bolt-action rifle with scope, officer's saber, Tanto dagger, katana. Carries a shepherd's sling in left trouser pocket; is a dead shot with it as well; profocient at throwing grenades with it.  Always has a bundle of survival tools on his belt; the damnedest things come out of it, often just when they're needed.

Clothing/Appearance: (feel free to use this avatar creator website.)



Crew position/desired position:Bridge Ensign

Hm, I'm a tad worried we'll start the whole 'NPC Army' thing again with the way we're going... granted these are basically 1-time appearance NPC's but the habit is dangerous.

I think I should also mention I had a dream about this game, only Bailey was a woman...

I assure you, that incident in Singapore was all a misunderstanding.

Granted, too many NPCs can be unwieldy. I don't see a problem, however, on my end, since only Heinrich's gf carries a 'threat' of continuation; she's just there to give him a reason to be civil in public and a possible reason to cooperate with the rest of the crew. (ADDENDUM): she'll probably send him a Dear John letter sometime in the near future.

Graymonger's is just a place to buy a shemagh, and the "Swallow Laundry" incident is really just a pun taken to a higher level (heavily-laden? Yeah, now it's embarrassing. Oh, well... Wink)

As for my three

The two Morrison and Jameson are just non plus gunners/crew for when the **** hits the fan, perfectly killable

Bilge is essentially a pet I'll role play to help Lou out he's more of a send into the dangerous places to fix type of person than the chief mechanic


As a note how big is this ship, is it Serenity size or bigger? if it's bigger we'll need some nameless crew to fill in the spaces somewhat after all half a dozen people might well be able to fly a ship but not do much else

By the by I've taken it to be much bigger as it took several hours to search for stray crew

I'm thinking the Sabertooth is a little bigger than the Serenity, minimum crew would be 8-10 people, so we shouldn't need too many more. (I was thinking roughly the same thing as far as having a few people to run the gun turrets though, so the new additions are OK by me.)

As for searching for stray crew, it would have been a little more thorough than just going room to room, as we would have had to search pretty much everywhere someone might be hiding, plus the time it would have taken to actually deal with anyone we found. (The time may be a little off actually, but mainly I was thinking it was taken up dealing with unforseen problems.)

Given that this was what I intended for Roger to be would you mind retconning him into a different role? (or getting rid of him entirely if that's easier). I don't want to be punching down your ideas but it'll just be messy having 3 mechanic characters controlled by 3 different players, it'll be challenging enough with 2.


Also, here's post-haircut Roger

No problem I'll change bilge's role he's now just another body that just happens to know every inch of the ship, in his mind he owns the ship it's as much his as the captains he'll never do anything against the captain (not in his character) but will protect the ship above all else even it other crew members are in danger Bilge will look after the ship.

finishing up two paintings for donation to a raffle at a local music festival, scrounging my info and materials to go and get my new district badge (can't work in the classroom without it), and dealing with the gremlins that infest everyday life. And it's suddenly come up a gullywasher.

...Sooo ( Cheesy), I may be a bit before I can post anything. Maybe 8 pm tonight, but we'll see.

suuure he is...

Yeah. I think we would need a doctor. Have him approach the crew and I'll take him over from there (and kill him when necessary) given that he's meant to be teaching Jemima

Nevermind, I'll introduce him

I have a question. I must have missed something earlier on because I have no clue who Heinrich is or what he does...


Also, I made Walter. I'll do a proper sheet for him a bit later.

Heinrich was one of the old crew on the Sabertooth, he's the one Bailey stuck in the bridge locker when we took over the ship. He's pretty much a beginner pilot (technically the bridge ensign.) I figured he's sort of a co-pilot, or at least someone who can watch the controls in case Bailey has to do other stuff.

Are Dr Fitch's quarters by the medical bay? Or will we assume he was shown them on the way?

Mariah showed him on the way up. I'm thinking the crew quarters are all in the same area, going roughly on what's been established so far about the interior layout, they're one deck below the medical bay.

That's pretty much it; he's also good with weapons, especially with a katana, so he might be good as boarding or defensive support.

Hope the setup for this episode hasn't been too rough.

We'll be running into some of the alien creatures soon (I'll introduce them in a bit, once we get underground.) Seems the mine has uncovered something unexpected during thier recent expansions...

Most of the alien creatures (with their new bodies) aren't that capable yet, but they are quite intelligent and will adapt very quickly...
