Crash Landings (Open game)
« on: April 27, 2013, 05:41:43 PM »
I spend too much of my time thinking up naughty scene ideas. So here is another one!

I am going to steal the star wars level of space technology here, so stuff like hyperdrives, blasters, bounty hunters, droids, and so on. No Jedis. The basic story is that a country hunter ship filled with the crew (you guys), crash land on a undiscovered planet after someone missed a decimal point in the hyperdrive jump. Your ship lands more or less in one piece, but the hyperdrive is out and will take forever to for the droids to repair, which means wandering out onto the land to find food and provisions.

At this point you find the civilizations on this planet are in various animal-kinds. With the plains being controlled by zeebramorphs and the forest being in control of the tigers and so forth. With only one translator droid establishing communications and exploiting their primitive cultures for your own benefit will take a while.

So I would need players to play the crashed bounty hunter crew, along with others that want to play the natives if they want too. Also there is going to be a fun surprise for the newcomers to deal with, and give you something to shoot at.

Let's try this again!

Do I dare give this another try ^^

Not you too!

Sounds interesting. Are there aliens among the crashed ship, or are they all human?

Let's keep it simple and keep it all human.

This new roleplay idea seems familiar, but I wonder why Nicci...  :P

I still think this is an interesting idea but... maybe you should be more specific about the story you want your players to live.
I fear that without a clear goal to pursue (or several) we will witness the disappearance of the participants once again.

Thought it was clear enough. Get the ship repaired, which meant going off into the wilds to get the missing engine back to the ship.

Oh dear, I re read your original post and indeed I missed a line. I humbly apologize.
So how many bunty hunters do you want this time and do you want them to be equiped with a unique skill set ? like one medic, one heavy weapon specialist, one tech, etc... ?

Offline NicciKotorTopic starter

Need to cover the basics first. So captain, pilot, mechanic, and a medic first. So at least four people before I can begin.

Offline Belisuavious

I'll take the role of Captain, if nobody else wants it.

Offline Leyarite

Between those 4 classes, I would be interested in playing the medic.
Of course if someone else wants it and if we are more than 4, I don't mind giving it up.  :-)

Offline Raveled

I'll jump on the tech if I can.

Um. Erm. That is to play with AS the tech.

Horray. Now get those char sheets up so we can start as soon as possible. Also ask around for a forth, and maybe we can even get this started tonight!

Name: Captain Jason Argo
Appearance:
Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Background: Jason won his ship, The Loaded Dice in a game of cards. He was cheating, but then again, so was the man who he won it off of. He juts cheated better. Jason immediately got a crew together and set off to explore the galaxy and make as much money as he could. After  few odd jobs here and there, it looked like it was going to be a very profitable ship. He had a good crew, and enough contacts to ensure he made money whenever he landed.

And then, everything went wrong and thanks to a single decimal being off, he crashed. Well, not everything went wrong. The ship is still in one piece, and the engine can be fixed. It'll just take a while. And the communications are more or less shot, since he hasn't been able to get a message off-world. So he was stuck here, maybe for months, and all his lucrative contracts would have moved on.

But he had to make the best of this situation, so he is determined to wait it out as best he can. Maybe explore this planet they crashed on. There might be something valuable he could take and sell off-world to make a profit out of this disaster.

You are not good enough to play Malcolm Reynolds!

Fine. I'll be Richard Sharpe instead.

Don't be so impatient my dear Nicci !
I'm still hesitating over playing a male or a female medic, tough choice ! and since we are still not 4, I can continue to hesitate.  :P

An all-male crew could lead to some interesting dynamics once we encounter the natives.

But having one girl in the ship could mean even more lewd interactions once she gets caught by the natives and "welcomed" into their society.

I demand more details to help me in my decision !

Name: Jean (pronounced ZAHN) Woo
Picture
Background Jean Woo is a spacer's kid, born in the inky blackness and raised on spaceships. He's more comfortable in zero-gee than on a planet, and spends more time crawling around the ship's access ways than out in the normal corridors. That's not to say he doesn't socialize, but it's more common to talk to Jean over video or audio link than face-to-face. Or find one of his micro-drones crawling around your bunk.

Picture isn't star wars-ey enough. Need that cool aloofness of Han Solo vibe going.
