As AXL said, engineer or science officer makes the most sense for Nosmo, based on his skills and background.


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

I take whatever is left over. With decent Piloting and Computers, Elthaeron can fill in


I'll have our PCs turned NPCs man positions with their current stats. You almost need a six man party for space combat it seems sometimes.


Perception +8

Guys, I think AXL will go for Captain, is that ok?

I took a list at the available Captain actions and they seem to fit decently with his skill set.


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

Fine by me!


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

Works for me! Now we get to blame everything on you


Ah I guess it's NPC time to pilot after double checking the roles selected...


I'll be honest I'm kind of finding the Starship combat a bit awkward in the PBP format, I think I might try a more abstract cinematic approach.


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

Yeah, perhaps that would work better.


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

Agreed. Could still make some rolls out of it. Maybe make ships more akin to armies in wrath of the righteous. Mostly narrative, easy stats, quick rolling.


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

That is a thought! I quite like that sub-system.


Sorry for not getting the update out there quickly this time.


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

Only catching up myself now!


@All My laptop is out of commission for a bit I am afraid, still under warranty but it'll be a while. I'll sort something temporary in the next few days hopefully but things will slow down with having to use my phone.


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

That sucks. Best of luck to you on that


Perception +8

Sorry to hear that man - hope they get it fixed quickly. Good luck!


Perception +8

For some mechanical stuff - according to my list (when I started recording the loot), we have gathered:

Tactical semi-auto pistol (AXL)
18 small arm rounds (AXL)

2x Troop ceremonial plate (which include helmets)
2x Survival knife (AXL)
2x Tactical semi-auto pistol with
9 small arm rounds

Casual stationwear
Static arc pistol with 2 batteries (20 charges each) (AXL has one)
Tactical dueling sword
Augmentations standard darkvision capacitors

Troop ceremonial plate x2
Imperial pacification rifle (functions as a hunting rifle) x2
23 longarm rounds
Survival knife x2

The trident is a magical weapon called a whitefire trident. Its two side tines are predominantly ornamental, and the weapon functions as a tactical pike with the illuminating and ominous weapon fusions. In
addition, the weapon is carefully weighted to balance indefinitely when standing on its haft, although it can be pushed over with sufficient force or picked up again as normal.

Various valuable trinkets neatly secured within the large desk (mithral datapad holders, ornamental styli, heavy gold bracelets, and the like) are worth 3,500 credits in total.

Ceremonial Troop Plate x3
Standard Taclash x3
Survival Knife x3
Tactical Semi Auto Pistol x3

four tier 1 analgesics, two tier 1 antitoxins, and a tier 2 sedative. A cupboard marked “Medicinal Cures” in Azlanti contains four mk 1 serums of healing and six spell amps of lesser remove condition.

Aeon Guard trooper battle dress (clear spindle aeon stone, targeting computer)
Inevitable Downfall (called dispelling carbon steel curve blade)
Aeon Guard Assault Rifle with 48 longarm rounds
Motion-detection badge (AXL)
Ancient Azlanti datapad
Modern Azlanti datapad

4,000 Credits for Delivery. 3,500 credits worth of trinkets from the ship and 1,500UPB- this is the useful one since you can build stuff with it. You might be able to trade credits for UPB at the colony.

Does this look correct to you guys? Can you tell me what each one of you grabbed?


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

Thanks for compiling that. All I’ve taken is the clear spindle stone.

If nobody minds I’ll take the Augmentations standard darkvision capacitors (60ft Darkvision!) Though if someone else wants it I can pass.

A Tactical Semi Auto Pistol (backup weapon)

And I’d like to spend 1400 on an Ability Crystal for +2 Dex (this would represent him making a new mask)

Finally, and this is if nobody wants it, I could hold on to Inevitable Downfall. Just because a called curveblade is cool.


HP 22/22, SP 18/18, EAC 17, KAC 19, Fort +3, Ref +4, Will +3, Init +5, Perc +6 Human Mechanic (Scholar) 3

I had previously taken the darkvision capacitors, but you can have them instead.

I had also claimed a survival knife, the meds, and the arc pistol. I have noted down in my gear that I have one battery loaded in and a spare battery, so I guess there was already one inside?

I need to sort out armor rules so I can see if any of them would be a good upgrade for me.


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

No, you keep the Darkvision. I have low light, so it does more for you


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

Trosvod had taken:

Aeon Guard trooper battle dress (clear spindle aeon stone, targeting computer)
Inevitable Downfall (called dispelling carbon steel curve blade)
Aeon Guard Assault Rifle with 48 longarm rounds

Trosvod wasn't that pushed about the blade so he has no issue passing it over to Elthaeron.

He'll grab a Tactical Semi Auto Pistol too for a backup.


So am I correct in understanding you guys are just trying to trade for one or two items but otherwise refusing to discuss anything with them?


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

Pretty much. Trosvod knows that he isn't the classiest speaker.


Perception +8

Not just yet - still trying to figure what we actually want :D


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

We hailed them with codes that mark us as being part of an enemy government....in said enemy’s territory. The more we speak the greater the chance that we realize that we don’t belong as they sell said information. And yes, Elthaeron is being a bit paranoid.


Thats one way of looking at it. I'll move things along after the weekend, give people a bit longer to look over the gear they might want to pick up... are you trading any of your looted Azlanti gear you've picked up? Without saying a word you can certainly make an impression.


Perception +8

Ok guys, let us decide on this then.

AXL will be looking to check if some of this stuff is available to buy:

- Sword Cane
- Sap, Light
- Garrote, wire
- Freebooter armor I

We know he has some of them, but he will ask about the others nonetheless.

As for the rest, the following have been referred:

Ring of resistance, mk 1 735
Spell gem of charm person (5) 140 each

I would add

Aeon stone, amber hyperboloid 2,200 (this could be useful for Trosvod to take the lead?)

Is this it?


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

I'm fine with those.


@AXL he only has a sword can of the things you were looking for... he might know where there are other merchants or people you could trade with but that would require a dialogue. Staying quiet however has it's advantages but he's doubtful to volunteer information if you are being tight lipped.


Perception +8

Apologies for the slow posting - work was murder last week, and I have been travelling for the past two days. Updating now!


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

Oh, it happens! Glad to have you back on.


Give me some solid deception rolls and some good RP if you want to try to Han Solo this situation... and Han Solo wasn't able to convince the Imperials on the Deathstar. Unfortunately for you they are being helpful.


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

That about as good as Elthaeron is going to get :p


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

I may not get to post again before Friday evening.


There is a map up above to be clear.

Please list your damage type, it'll help me know if you are going against EAC or KAC.

As you might be noticing the actual Aeon Guard are of a solid standard with solid gear... gear that might soon be yours.


HP 22/22, SP 18/18, EAC 17, KAC 19, Fort +3, Ref +4, Will +3, Init +5, Perc +6 Human Mechanic (Scholar) 3

What's our play? Keep fighting or "surrender" and hope for an opportunity later?


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

Keep fighting...I don’t see us surviving later. They seem competent. And if we are thrown in jail, we’ll likely be separated and our gear taken away, with reports made of our presence. I think that we need these guys dead now.


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

I agree with Elthaeron. I can't see them letting us live if they have any choice in the matter.


Surrender is a viable option... I mean we're already off the route the adventure expects you to take. Prison breaks are a classic in RPGs!


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

I'm warming to the idea of surrender but the conscious people should get the decision.


Perception +8

I have stated my opinion - everyone seems very silent all of a sudden :D


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

To be fair, at least Trosvod has a good reason. ;)


Perception +8

Indeed hehe.


Elven soldier (3) HP (25/25) SP (24/24) Saves (4/5/4) +2 Enchantment) RP (4/5) EAC/KAC (17/19) Computers, Engineering (+7) Mysticism (+8) Perception, Piloting (+10)

Now I want to keep shooting...as they threatened torture/death and offer no promises against the torture bit. Logically going down now would be the least painful option.

But I don’t want to be *that guy*


You can fight but dear god make sure to spend the resolve to stabilize when you go down... the Aeon Guard are happy to kill you but I'd rather a less permanent outcome from this for you guys.


Perception +8

Apologies for the lack of posting guys - had a medical emergency last Thursday, and I am still recovering from it... Trying to catch up as best as possible.

I will also grab this opportunity to let you know I will (hopefully) be travelling from the 18th to the 27th to visit family over the Christmas holidays, so posting will definitely be spotty.


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

Take care AXL!


Glad you are on the mend, enjoy the holidays.


HP: 4/27; SP: 24/24 | EAC 20 KAC 22 | Fort +4; Ref +5; Will +3 | Init +4 | Move 20ft |

I may be unavailable tomorrow. Feel free to bot Trosvod if necessary.


HP 22/22, SP 18/18, EAC 17, KAC 19, Fort +3, Ref +4, Will +3, Init +5, Perc +6 Human Mechanic (Scholar) 3

A heads up to all my games:

Tomorrow morning, my wife and I will be driving across a couple of states to spend the week with her family, and we will be returning on Friday.
I will be bringing my laptop with me, so I can still make posts during downtime, but my posting rate may be a bit more erratic than usual.

Thank you very much, and happy holidays.
