Just reflavor firearms, with the Guns Everywhere setting since apparently we're in the far future and blasters are commonplace.

Aye, reflavor advanced firearms. Missfire this case is likely battery meltdown.

This makes sense and all but it lacks both DM confirmation and fails to address little things like clip size, damage, range, reloading time and cost of both gun and ammunition. For that matter, we're stranded on a 'hostile' planet, can we get additional ammo at all? Can we just plug old batteries into the ships reactor for a full recharge? (Thus making ammo free but only available one place and making batteries hugely valuable.) Or do we only have what we brought with us and have to find some local, and likely magical, means of replenishing supplies if we don't want to end up fighting with knives ourselves? For that matter what about advanced projectile weapons? She keeps saying "think Firefly", and in Firefly they use bullets and shells often enough. Are projectile weapons more reliable? more damaging?

And just to top things off, do blasters have a 'stun' setting and, if they do, does it require the standard -4 penalty to attack roles to do non-lethal damage with a lethal weapon?

Hey, some of us prefer punchin' others in the shnozz over screwing around with unwieldy blasters :-P

But yeah, rules on how bows and such are treated as blasters would be nice, as some of us (me) lack the funds for a firearm but would be happy using a longbow (or something similar--like a bowcaster?) that fit the setting.

First I would point out that the Guns Everywhere rules do reduce all gun and ammo prices to 10% of list price. That's still quite a chunk of change but an updated 'Guns Prominent' rule set could reduce that further... after all 1% of 4000gp is still 40gp, and that would be the cheapest advanced gun. Since modern day firearms run from $20 to $3000 and a modern meal costs about $10 while a common Pathfinder meal costs 3sp... A basic weapon would run you about 1gp while something intended as your primary firearm should probably be between 10-30gp tops. For a heavy weapon.

Hey, if the DM agrees with that, consider me armed with a gun/blaster :-P

Reduce gun prices by 50%.

Roll call again? I cannot be bothered to read this thread over once more.

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Still here and interested, just haven't got time to type down my char but so far planning to be ranger with trapper and freebooter archtypes (plan use blaster somekind and shot on the run approach). Use the pic with guy with eye patch and nazi suit and plan play him out as chauvinist captain (so any female crew must have proven themselves to be far above average in their field of specialization in the crew than any male candidate). A kind of leader type thanks freebooter abilities give ranger 'leadership' abilities. Although not sure is the 7th level replacement making any sense in sci-fi setting (it would either remain same or related to ignore difficult terrain in ship/urban environment or zero-G gravity penalties for being experienced 'space raider').

Still here, still wondering about the Gun Tank Archtype to Gunslinger, still wondering about blaster stats.

Offline Ghostwheel

Barely here, interest waning with the waiting.

Yes and same as before.

So that makes three. Have you all decided which roles in the spaceship you'll be doing? If draconic shows up we can begin.


Offline Zaer Darkwail

Well, I would prefer my char would be the captain.

Offline Ghostwheel

I think I've already mentioned my proposed role a time or two in the thread.

Going to give this game another one to three days to start since it's been almost 2 weeks with nothing really concrete and no clear start date.

If nothing concrete happens, I'll probably be bowing out and letting someone else take my spot.

I've already made my character as the captian.

Then can my char be second command then?

Is that alright, NikkiKotor? (I'm fine with it)

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Well, considering your char haves a 'meek' personality and my char is chauvinistic with idea that male gender is superior to women.....so question is how they have worked their working relationship and why my guy is content sit as second in command :P. I could imagine he would be more active as a leader (he's kind aggressive sort) while he lets you namely hold the command. Also he may have likely often questioned your commands but most of the time he obeys them to letter.

I was thinking of it being the relationship where your character thinks of a brutal plan, resulting my character always needing to explain the flaws in it after facepalming, soon explaining one that is more efficient and requires less bloodshed. (Sorry if it sounds as if I'm belittling your character.....)

Offline Zaer Darkwail

Sounds ok to me, I intent my guy to be kind of 'raiding space nazi' with chauvinistic attitude. He may at times jab his superior about being 'too soft' for her job just because she is a woman (and women are default softies). Not intending him to be asshole second command, but clearly one who has no trouble be brutal and efficient and thinks low about most women.

Also part of his obedience can be gratitude as he was wanted criminal from his home world and your ship helped him escape and he has no place to go so he sticks around and accepts your command so long he needs place to stay.

Seems perfect then. :)

Edit: Plus, he'll get command anyway once my character goes AWOL to capture a cat girl.

Sorry, things came up with work and classes starting, I don't think I'll be able to dedicate enough time to this game, so I think I'll bow out.

Good luck to the rest of you!

All right that makes four with Zaer. I'll get this game up and running sometime tonight.

Also I don't give two shits whom is in charge or what roles you play on the ship. That is something you all need to sort out amongst yourselves. I have no input into it.

That and Saric is at some wedding or something, so really no need to rush this.
