Updated player list with tentative characters:
- Triggvi, ex-Imperial Marine bodyguard for the noble whose parent owns the ship, or said noble
- NicciKotor, dangerously sexy bounty hunter
- Branwen, low-ranking crew member, or personal servant to a rich PC
- evangel, rich asshole
- Marie Reynolds, popular entertainer, or noblewoman with a submissive secret
- Leyarite, kind and noble nobleman
- Prince Truhan, rich guy
- mia h, one of the wealthy people
OK, if everyone currently listed actually turns in a good character sheet, we have plenty of rich people. I am pleased.
Alright, sounds good, I'll find a justification but... can you give me a list of those Psi capabilities ?
Telepathy, telekinesis, clairvoyance, body control (buffing yourself, basically), teleportation, and occasional "special" talents that don't fit with the above. Most psis have one or two of the above talents at most, and not particularly strongly. You can't use your psi powers for very long without running out of juice (psi strength points).
I have an idea for how a noble could have psi powers…I'll PM you soon.
I might be interested in playing either a conman who has convinced the kids that he's a knowledgeable guide to the galaxy (He's really just trying to sneak off of the planet) or a young rich man who is a talented pilot and gunman but who has horribly unrealistic ideas of what being a space adventurer is like.
The first idea overlaps quite a lot with NicciKotor's character, so I'm going to veto it.
The second one…you'd probably have to be the one whose parent owned the ship in order to convince the captain to let you pilot it, ever, even for a minute. But Triggvi doesn't want to play that character, so it's all good!
Just so you know: combat in Traveller is famously deadly
. Getting into extended firefights is a good way to die or be horribly wounded, even for experienced characters. Starship combat…well, with such a small ship, unless it's a case of "hold them off for a few minutes while Mactavish charges the jump drive," or unless you're fighting an even smaller ship (it does happen), better just surrender.
