Milly can do it in a pinch.  I just wanted to be clear for people looking that a full time mechanic is still very much in play for new characters. ;)

Update revised:

So far we have:
A communications/electrical/martial arts person - approved
A hacking/technical/hand to hand person - awaiting feedback
A firearm/first aid/mechanical person - approved
A pilot with astronavigation skills - under discussion
My ship Captain - awaiting feedback

(and a reserved fighter).


Milly can do it in a pinch.  I just wanted to be clear for people looking that a full time mechanic is still very much in play for new characters. ;)

I guess we'll see if anyone takes on the role.

Also we are not closing the roles to just one of each type. Depending on the interest we might go for a bigger ship. If we get enough pilots or even fighters, we can possibly have some one man fighters on board (Ok that might be a bit much...but a pod or even some sort of smaller vessel, ala a companion pod or otherwise could be an option in the future). Not saying we are, but we (GM types) can weave some magic and make things work.

If we don't have some at the beginning, maybe we can steal some. :D

From very bad people, obviously, who don't need them as much as we do.

I've had a mean interest in the Firefly setting for play for a while. I have an Academy escapee/Engineer I've been meaning to use, given the pilot role is already under consideration and the like. Any need for an engineer who is trying to remember how to be human again?

We only have one person with minor mechanical skills so an Engineer would be fine I bet.

I can adapt. The pilot I had in mind can be shifted to a Con-Artist/Rake type who can fly shuttles/smaller craft in a pinch.

That should be fine. I'd run it by Aiden to make sure, but it's a concept not already covered (at least in a major way. A conman type).

*Drops in some mood music*



This is how character sheets currently look. Please bear with us while we go through sheets. Aiden keeps opposite hours to me, so it slows things down a bit.

Updates Revised. I'm going to start putting character names on these otherwise I won't keep track:

(Radio Vixen) Communications/electrical/martial arts - approved
(Milly) Shotgun/first aid/mechanical - approved
(Nammi) Pilot/reflexes/astronavigation - under discussion
(Lindsay Grace) Mechanical engineering/command/tinkered weapons - awaiting feedback (my ship Captain)
(Robert Jones) Pilot/gunslinger/combat - under discussion
(Dimas Lohengrim) Cane/sword/piloting - under discussion
(Aiden's character) Combat - reserved
(Jorgen) Engineering/piloting/athleticism - under discussion
(Caleb Zhang) Computer skills/electrical/hand to hand - finalising sheet

4 pilots....hmm perhaps I should try a different idea. Though I was really feeling the one I wrote up so I don't know if I will be able to get a muse for it. Maybe I'll just have to wait for the next one or something.

I'm fairly sure you submitted your pilot first, but in any case, Aiden was looking at having other ships if we got more people with piloting skills. Don't give up on her just yet. If it's a problem then we'll ask people to choose different skills, but it shouldn't be.

It is my firm belief, anyone on a ship should have some degree of skill in multiple stations obboard a ship.

Example a mechanic should know how a ship operates, hence a minor degree in piloting.

But a mechanic would not be a world renown rally or NASCAR racer.

There are degrees of skill. Same thing with a solider/security types, other crew members are expected to hold their own ion a pinch. So having multiple people with the same skill is not a bad thing.

I submitted Jorgen, the engineer. 

I'm flexible when it comes to his skills, even with the engineering.  I have his personality in mind already.  His job is just a reason for him to be on the ship.  Still, I'm hoping to play out some engineering scenes.

For comparison with the Serenity crew using this game's character sheet, Inara could be considered to have piloting as a secondary skill.  Or her piloting could not be a secondary skill at all.  Either way, I'm thinking my character's piloting is comparable to Mal or Inara.  They can fly enough that they don't have to be chauffeured around, but they also can't do Crazy Ivans or Barn Swallows or crash landings or moving train heists.

Multiple pilots is doable.  Wash, Mal, Inara, River - four pilots (or three at a time), one ship (with two shuttles).

Amber, would you please put player names with their characters?

In fairness, Eccentricity is not the guy you want to trust to pilot the ship unless things go pear shaped. He tends to steal ships. His piloting skills are best used in creating distractions, or making things mighty inconvenient for folk who mean the crew wrong... because you can't exactly chase us if your ship's gone.

The game has just begun and we're still accepting characters. If you're interested, please drop Aiden and myself a line with your concept/idea.

In case you're curious:

The main game thread is here.

And the OOC is here.
