I hate to be the rules nanny but you can only do one Attribute bump per rank and we're rank one until... I'd have to look it up something like 4 advances?

@ Daisy. Thank you for the reminder.

Advancement 1 Vigor will be D8

Advancement 2
Stealth to D8
Piloting to D8

I don't mind people correcting me if I have made a mistake. I appreciate it.

Hey, everyone. between the technical problems and my inability to make myself useful in this game, I think it is time for me to head for the stars. Thank you for the opportunity. Sorry for wasting your time. Please mark me as inactive in this campaign.


Bummer to see you go Conrad. I can't help you with your technical problems, but if you want to make up a totally new PC (we need a Psionic, hint, hint), you're welcome to do so.

Arabella - upon consideration, I think 30p is WAY too low for the binoculars. With the added night vision, and the shrinking to goggles (making it hands-free), due the tremendous advantages this item provides, I think 500p is more appropriate (it would have to be Alliance-built, after all).

Flashlight, dual mode, shoulder mount : 60p

Digital camera : 300p

Harold - SW skill advancement is kind of wonky. One advancement can boost 2 skills one die if their current values are *lower than* their linked Attribute, or one skill that is originally equal to or greater than its linked skill. So the Stealth to d8 is ok, but since your Smarts is d6, boosting Piloting to d8 would cost a whole Advancement. You can either just boost Piloting, or find another skill that's currently less than its linked Attribute, and boost Stealth and it.

@ GM, I could have sworn Piloting was Agility based. Will recheck, and if not will find something else.

Sorry to see you go, Conrad!


I can't recall now how I decided that Piloting was Smarts-based. You're right, in SWADE it's Agility-based, so you should be good with Stealth and Piloting to d8.

I think you were thinking of navigation, which is smarts based.

Arabella will get the flashlight and the optical goggles with lowlight vision.


Just to be clear, if you buy anything on an Alliance planet, that purchase goes on your permanent record and can be perused by the government at their will (I think I've said this before, but just making sure). If that bothers you, you can wait until you're on a non-Alliance planet to buy stuff.

The alliance records will show that Daisy bought some clothes, both fashionable working clothes and some more comfy knock around stuff. Oh, also a set of pink bed sheets. High cotton count on those...


Female Human Card: Bennies: 1 Parry: 5 [2 + 6(fighting)/2] Toughness: 5 [2 + 6(vigor)/2] (2) Armored Duster RATN: 4 Pace: 5 Notice: d6

Arabella has likely in the past done some things that the Alliance would not approve of or might want to question her about if they knew about them, but as she doesn't have any hindrances like secret or the like, she is not particularly worried about a purchase showing up on her permanent record. She figures making purchases like this just reinforces that she has nothing to hide and is spending some of her platinum to benefit Core-based industry and commerce.

The rules seem vague about how a shepherd qualifies for the post, whether there is a registration process, like for companions, and the like. Feel free to spell any of those out if you like.

Sihnon is listed as the HQ of the Buddhist religion, but Arabella is associated with the Taoists, which I assume would have some official standing similar to the Buddhists (and the Confucians). In Earth history, Taoists have a reputation of being non-conformists. The Shao-Lin developed martial arts in part to train the common people for self-defense against more powerful agents. It's possible the Taoists were/are sympathetic to the browncoats, although as an organization they'd probably try to maintain a neutral stance, at least publicly.

See Yellow Turban Rebellion for an example.

Whether it is historical or not, many martial arts films depict use of martial arts (of which the Shaolin are but one example) in service of rebellions. So there is a rich range of possible roles 'Verse Taoists might have played during the browncoat rebellion. Feel free to narrate any of this or let me know if you'd like me to make some suggestions.

Kung Fu (TV series) is another example. The shaolin temple is actually a Buddhist temple of the Chan (Zen in Japan) lineage. But in the Kung Fu TV show, the master is often shown quoting Lao Tzu and not generally referring to Buddhism. Chan, in any case, developed partly as a mixing of Buddhist and Taoist ideas.


Arabella - I'd imagined that one could just declare yourself to be a Shepherd, and that was it. The quality of your teachings, and the emotional and physical support you gave people, would determine your reputation. AFAIK, the TV series didn't say anything about Shepherds as a group. With at least two major religions, I suppose if you officially joined one of them, and went thru some kind of learning/training, you could claim the title Shepherd, but short of some kind of card ID (which could easily be forged), there'd be no way to prove that you're "official".

The Firefly fan wiki lists the six major current Earth's religions (but not Taoism), but I'd hesitate to call that canon. Since Buddhism is the biggest religion, it would make sense that Taoism and maybe even Confucianism would be around too to some degree. It also doesn't have a generic "Shepherd" (as a group) page at all.

If you want to make a backstory for yourself about your adventures in the Rebellion, feel free. Some of the events might come back to haunt you as the game progresses, tho...

Will need to look back at how much we got. Daisy will buy some clothes, probably grab a few more things to spruce up the passenger cabins we haven't used yet and perhaps, not here, but elsewhere in the future, think about a rifle upgrade.

GM: I sent you a PM with suggested plot hooks.


There's a recruitment for a Savage Worlds RIFTS game...in Atlantis! I'm not the GM.

Click HERE.

If you have SWADE RIFTS, you only need one other manual, $10 in PDF form. It has new races and Frameworks, but I'm not really sure you'd even need it if you go with SWADE RIFTS races and Frameworks.

Savage Rifts is BONKERS crazy, overpowered and fun.

I'm not sure I want to commit the time and money for a new campaign, but if the campaign is short PCs, let me know and I'll consider creating a character.

Same here.


The original recruitment post languished unanswered for like 10 days, until I happened to spot it. Now, 4 players have expressed tentative interest so far, and I made the same heads-up post to all the games I'm in, so hopefully there's more to come.

If you don't have SW RIFTS, that's just $10, and the RIFTS Atlantis book the GM is recommending is also just $10, but I'm not even sure you'd need the second one. I've been trying to pin the GM down to just how essential it is (it does have new races and Frameworks [classes], but the basic RIFTS book has lots of those already). So you're looking at a $10-$20 investment.

RIFTS is like a high-powered Supers campaign, like Daisy said, WAY overpowered compared to most PC's starting out in a "normal" campaign!

Big problem that I found with rifts, was that each source book, was more overpowered than the previous one.

By the end, a character from the main book, could not compete with ones from the last book.

For example, the cyberknight, was completely outclassed by the classes from the coalition wars. (IIRC the books)

After taking a look i'm skipping it. Already in one game from that GM.


Daisy - any particular reason why one game with that GM is enough?

I'd prefer a smaller group of less professional NPCs with us as the film crew and back-up trouble-shooters.


If NPCs are doing the actual filming, what are the players' PCs doing?

Looks like i will schlepping cargo


Harold - I was asking Arabella within the context of the scenario where y'all are filming the operation. She said that you would have NPC's as a "film crew" (which I took to mean operating the cameras), so I'm left wondering what the PC's would be doing...

Right now, the only things that I am good at, is shooting and stabbing things.

Therefore moving cargo seems to be about right for me

Sorry to be absent recently. My wife was hospitalized a few days last week (she's okay and back home now). Between visits to the hospital and finishing my class for the term, I've been distracted from posting.

I'll also let everyone know now that I'm going to be traveling later this week and again toward the beginning of next week. I don't know my access to WIFI although I will have my laptop so I can post if I have time and access. I'll be attending my HS 50th anniversary next weekend.

Daisy will also not go unprotected after the last fiasco but goes more stealthy than Harold, her Derringer, dagger and pepper spray hidden amongst her clothes.

Ok, it seems you're assuming things about the job in your head that you don't put in your post's description of getting hired, like being provided the cameras you need to do the job. I can only go by what you post. Now that I know what you were thinking...

Here is how Arabella described the job:

Arabella Stormworth-Darling wrote:

"I learned that a salvage and rescue operation is about to depart to find a derelict Passenger liner. They need a cargo ship to transport essential supplies, food for any survivors, some small vessels used in the salvage, and a special ship that will create a video record for a documentary on the salvage and rescue mission. The cargo is only about a ton, but we'll be paid a daily fee for taking care of the cargo and operating the camera vessels. ..."

Cargo transport jobs don't generally require us to purchase the equipment. It is provided and we load it on and take it elsewhere. So I assumed that meant we would have the equipment provided and would naturally bring it when we reported to the captain. I assumed they would have instructed us further on what they wanted us to bring when we entered the ship.

That's why I have been confused that the GM is suggesting we don't have camera equipment and other things described as cargo in the initial post.

Sorry if any of that was not clear.


Ah - I saw the "cargo transport" and "making a documentary" as two different kinds of jobs. Of course you're always given the cargo to transport, but figured your employer would assume you'd provide the video equipment since "making a documentary" is providing a service. If you asked a plumber to go somewhere to fix a leaky pipe, you'd figure they'd have their own tools.

But no problems, we're all on the same page now, I think.

I've been wondering about that. I'm not sure I'm willing to subscribe just for that, but I don't want to wait for the next DVD box set either.

Our cable service has On Demand and I recently noted that all the Doctor Who regular season episodes are available. I think the earlier seasons before the restart might be available on On Demand as well.


Arabella - what's your cable service? If it's Comcast, do you have an Xfinity DVR box?


Male Human Scientist 8

We have Verizon Fios. It has On Demand. I just double-checked and the On Demand episodes are not free to me. So I have no way to see any of the new episodes. If you want to go halfsies on a Disney+ subscription, I might be interested if I can come over and watch episodes at your place.
