Are we doing the thing where we can all post after an enemy if our action would be up before the enemies next one, or are we waiting for each one?

Kind of too late an answer, but for next time, sure. If you're in the rotation before the next hostile, you can post in any order. I'll try to do like in Mummy's Mask, where I name everyone who can act in bold.

Cool. Thought I had best not assume.

Esh, Sharlavaka, I'm curious, how did you arrive at your unique names?


Male Elf Technomancer (Scholar) 8 | SP: 21/44; HP: 44/44; RP: 8/9 | EAC: 17; KAC; 18 | Fort: +4, Ref: +7, Will: +8 | CMAC: 23 | Init: +3 | Perception: +13+2(HeiAwa); LowLight, Darkvision |

I generally use a random name geerator, tweak it in varying amounts, or just type something that sounds phonetically nice.


Vesk Soldier (Guard) 8 | SP: 56/70; HP: 61/61; RP: 7/7 | EAC: 23; KAC; 27 | Fort: +8, Ref: +6, Will: +8 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +4 | Perception: +11; LowLight, Darkvision |

...I don't know. I just thought about it, looked at the example names, and wrote down something that looked right.


Female Android Operative (Outlaw) 6 | SP: 0/42; HP: 28/40; RP: 9/9 | EAC: 21; KAC: 23 | Fort: +3, Ref: +11, Will: +6 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +8 | Perception:+12; LowLight, Darkvision

Ok, we found the ore; how do we move it? Do we look for a hand truck to move pallets? Do we take the elevator? Did we bring a vehicle or the Revenge? Where did we park relative to the elevator's top floor?


Vesk Soldier (Guard) 8 | SP: 56/70; HP: 61/61; RP: 7/7 | EAC: 23; KAC; 27 | Fort: +8, Ref: +6, Will: +8 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +4 | Perception: +11; LowLight, Darkvision |

They must have some moving equipment in the area to actually get it out. It might not be kept in the same room, however.


Female Android Operative (Outlaw) 6 | SP: 0/42; HP: 28/40; RP: 9/9 | EAC: 21; KAC: 23 | Fort: +3, Ref: +11, Will: +6 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +8 | Perception:+12; LowLight, Darkvision

Yes we look for a hand truck or a fork lift. This being sci fi I could envision a motorized exoskeleton like Sigourney Weaver used in one of the Alien sequels.

Grunting, Sharlavaka lifted the pallet and looked around for something suitable to transport the materials. The Bulky Vesk didn't want to have to carry them back to the ship, as it would be hard to shoot another robot.

I really doubt even at 18 Strength someone could stagger around with a 4 foot square pallet stacked high of rock and metal. Sorry to rain on your parade. It is Rando's call.

OK, just to be sure - our drop off point is the Loading Bay in the centre of the facility, rather than heading back the way we came? And we can access the security door from the side we're currently on?


Female Android Operative (Outlaw) 6 | SP: 0/42; HP: 28/40; RP: 9/9 | EAC: 21; KAC: 23 | Fort: +3, Ref: +11, Will: +6 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +8 | Perception:+12; LowLight, Darkvision

Ok I'm confused. Are we in Main Storage?


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 6/Martial Artist 2

So, what you have is a "building" that's actually carved into the mountain. The door you entered was from street level.

Lift in the loading dock leads up to a sort of secured parking lot on top of the building, which is where vehicles wait to be loaded. As a security measure, the lift can only be opened from inside the building.

So what you did not see because I started the adventure in medias res is the scene where Quinn would have gotten inside the upper yard on a forged ID or similar subterfuge and parked your truck up there to be ready for your escape. She then made her way back down to you and you guys hacked in to get access to the Loading Bay from the inside, with the plan of making your way out with the truck from the top of the building, onto a mountain road, and away.

You already gathered the materials and moved to your truck on roof, per my last post.

Having moved approximately four tons of ore, roughly 60000 cr worth (counting the adamantine), onto the lift in the next room, the team takes the ore to the roof and the waiting transport.

Did we somehow teleport onto the ship between posts?


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 6/Martial Artist 2

You are not on the ship, you are in the Forge, a bar.

There's a lot of narrative travel in my last couple posts, so read carefully if you're confused, everyone, and I'll try to be less jumpy-aroundy in the future.


Female Android Operative (Outlaw) 6 | SP: 0/42; HP: 28/40; RP: 9/9 | EAC: 21; KAC: 23 | Fort: +3, Ref: +11, Will: +6 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +8 | Perception:+12; LowLight, Darkvision

Rando, I guess you're waiting for Esh to introduce himself? I'm eager to get paid, do some role playing, and start our next mission.


Male Elf Technomancer (Scholar) 8 | SP: 21/44; HP: 44/44; RP: 8/9 | EAC: 17; KAC; 18 | Fort: +4, Ref: +7, Will: +8 | CMAC: 23 | Init: +3 | Perception: +13+2(HeiAwa); LowLight, Darkvision |

Apologies. I was waiting on some clarification seeing as the ship AI was randomly in the bar as well. ;P

...Nevermind.

I'll post when I'm at a more acceptable level of mental awareness.


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 6/Martial Artist 2

No, it's cool. I jumped around a lot, Quinn hasn't posted for a while and Esh has been out, so I can see how it could be confusing. This is really just an opportunity to RP and get introduced to the scenario; not supposed to be a stresser.


Female Android Operative (Outlaw) 6 | SP: 0/42; HP: 28/40; RP: 9/9 | EAC: 21; KAC: 23 | Fort: +3, Ref: +11, Will: +6 | CMAC: 31 | Init: +8 | Perception:+12; LowLight, Darkvision

Probably won't be able to get it until next adventure. Part 2 involves you leaving planet very soon.

And yea, I was a bit confused on the bar/ship thing, but I imagine most of us have a communicator with the ship, if not each other.

Rando, does Expansion Bay Science Lab impose an extra 2 PCU each on top of Med Lab’s and Tech Workshop’s energy cost?


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 6/Martial Artist 2

not at this juncture. If I decide it's a problem later, I might change it, but I don't see that happening.

Does the Gemini AI appear as a hologram or is she merely a voice?

I want to add an Alarm to her, triggered when someone tries to hack her. How do you guys want it to work? Does she appear or speak (see above) to notify us? Do we get an alert on our comms? Both? Klaxons throughout the ship?
Guys, your thoughts are appreciated.

I'd go for a message to out personal comms, or a message to the room we're in if alone and without out comm stuff on. No need to let any potential intruders know we're aware of them and give up the element of surprise.

I was waiting on Gemini to respond to Esh, but presumably he'd get to doing check ups of the science station and such.

I said I'd leave the RP of Vera up to AbsolutGrndZer0 (Quinn's player), but maybe I should make a GM version of Vera so I can do quick one-off responses now and then.

Guys, your thoughts are appreciated.

As for being a hologram, no. At least, not yet. Originally she had an android body because that's what she was, she just copied her mind and personality into the ship's AI and kept herself connected to it. (Kind of like Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda only in reverse, if you have seen it. While I can't say for sure that's what I was thinking when I originally designed Quinn and Vera, rewatching the show I'm realizing I probably was.) So, if you haven't seen that great show, you should, at least a few episodes so you can get a feel for how Andromeda and her "ship's avatar" is handled (although, like I said, in Vera Gemini's case, the android came first.)

However, since the 'accident' Quinn had while Vera was on a solo mission, the android Vera is cut off from the Ship AI version. Now that the 'real' Vera is gone, a hologram might be something for us to look into for the future.

Rando, is dancing simulated with Athletics? Acrobatics? Can I take 10?


Male Human (Polish Jew/Native American/Irish) Techie 6/Martial Artist 2

Probably more a straight Dex thing, unless you're actually a professional dancer, in which case Profession (Dancer). Only the latter is going to get any spectacular results, so no need to roll in most cases.

Don't need to pay more, but yes, it's too late to search. You didn't think of it in character until someone else did.

Yea perform is a profession skill in Starfinder (which is Dex, Cha, or Int depending on the profession), basically. So, I went with Profession: Courtesan to reflect pretty much anything a "courtesan" would do.

I utterly ignore it and go to work. Because I'm manly, and tough. Grrrrr.

Nah, I couldn't take time off for the last couple of days. I've got tonight off...and my boss tried to call me in because, surprise surprise, the other guys sick. Sadly he failed, since I've also been working a lot and desperately need time off.

So tonight I have Netflix on the main TV, a laptop and some takeaway. No heat though. I don't do well with heat. I'm from Northumberland in England. It sees not the sun and knows nothing but rain, fog and hatred. If I turn on the heat it makes me sad.
