Title: Starter Adventure - "Gelf Golf"
Post by: Zarniwoop on 03 August 2008, 23:14:40
Hi Gang,

So who is interested in playing and when do we want to start. The first session will start with character creation for those who do not have characters yet. For those that need a character below is the current crew breakdown to help you to decide what to be.

Evolved Dog
Hologram "Reginald Selwyn"
Evolved Hedgehog "H the Hog"

I believe the concensus was that the ship was called "JMC - Blue Meanie" please correct me if I got this wrong :)

Please note personal protection gear must be worn at all times.

If people want to just kick things off we could start this Thursday this week, I will try and get prepared in my usual way  :P

The first session will probably just be character creation and crew orientation.

Character creation is fairly easy so I suggest we do it on the night, but I will list a summary of character options here so people can have a think about what they would like to play in order to think a bit of there back story for orientation ;)

Character Types:
Evolved Animal (Cat, Dog, Iguana, Rabbit, Rat, Mouse etc)
Human
Kinitawowi
Mechanoid - 3000 Series
Mechanoid - 4000 Series
Mechanoid - Hudzen 10
Pleasue Gelf
Simulant
Wax Droid
Vinaloovian Gelf
Hologram (But this is already taken, as you remember they can only be one hologram active)

Optional Secondary Characters (not really Player Characters but):
Talkie Toaster
Skutters

OK we have a plan  :-\

First session of this will be on Thurs 14th Aug at the Coopers, starting at 7.30(ish) we'll create characters for those that do not have one, then crew orientation and finally we'll start the adventure.

I have a yen to play a hyper-intelligent scutter called Vince. basically its a Scutter which has had one of the ships back up AI personality's loaded onto it. This has not worked perfectly because despite the original unit having been upgraded and over clocked by a bored maintenance crewman it doesn't mealy have the capacity to deal with this and is  given to erratic comedic results.

A very fun session of crew orientation if somewhat chaotic (no change there then!  +:beer=+::beer: )

I think it may help move things along, and enable a better in for the others if we have a bit of a chat about how you came to be where you are.

I think we should work on the principle that most of you have always been on the ship and therefore we need a littel backstory of how well or not you know each other already and how you will work as a crew.

I'll leave it up to you to thrash it all out as its your ship and your crew :) (god help me  +:bandhead=+::banghead: +:coffee=+::coffee: )

Captain Reginald Selwyn (Acting)

I am one of the original crew who served on the Blue Meanie now acting captain who has known the Skutter "Vince"  +:laughing4=+::laughing4: for 3 million years.

The rest of the "crew" I have only recently become aware of.  It's a big ship and there are lots of Health and Safety proceedures to be monitored and risk assements to be updated.


End of report

Vince has been active since the "accident" which killed off the original crew during which the Then active version of Holly  memory dumped into it. at some point prior to that The scutter who would become Vince was modified mostly to give it massively more memory and improve its processing capacity. There is now no record of by whom and why, neither is there any record of why the memory dump was done or quite what the accident was. Vince may remember but as yet lacks access to parts of its memory which have been Hyper compressed and which Vince lacks the processing power and the memory space to decompress it to. Vince was active alone for a time betwean the accident and the current version of Holly's decision to reactivate the captain which resulted in the hollo Selwyn.

Vince resents Selwyn who has in its opinion delusions of authority and the current Holly who is only a bloody backup!!

end part 1

still thinking about the rest of this

That was the original plan BUT we are now moving the next day so that may not be such a good idea for us  :-\

I think it may be best to schedule it for the week after if possible.

Thanks.

Zarniwoop, you wrote "That was the original plan BUT we are now moving the next day so that may not be such a good idea for us"

How on earth do you move a whole day?

I mean if your move Friday the 29th, won't there be a day--sized hole left in the space time continuum? What do we do then - will you also find another spare day and move it into the space left by the absence of Friday 29th?


I think we should be told the truth!

had not thought of that one Whitefire it would be horrible if Friday the 29th was the day I was supposed to win the Euro millions lottery and you had moved it we do indeed need to know Z isent going to meddle with the space time continuum.
