I'd like the name of the ship to be the Goshawk if no one objects.

When I think of a good title, this'll be going up...probably in Bon-E Small Games, for the moment.

Also, I'll compile the dial settings soonish, get the char-gen and cast thread set up, and then we can get going on the 'good' ship Goshawk.

We'll also want to discuss the ship at some point, since it gets one Forte to represent itself and then one additional vehicular Forte per PC...

Which means this could be a particularly impressive pirate vessel by the time we're done, if a bit silly-looking.   :-)

Feel free, since you gotta wait for me to think of a title.

Here's the official summary of dial settings!

Thumbnail: Flash Gordon meets Buck Rogers, as written by Rumiko Takahashi and directed by Ralph Bakshi.

Sapients: Aliens!  That means Elves, Dwarves, Hawk-men, Furries of all sorts...

Psionics: Yes

Travel: warp gates to hyperspace, ships are 'Spelljammer' style vessels.

Blasters: normal damage

PC Group Starship: One, with daughtercraft.

PC Group: a motley crew of pirates and rebels, struggling against Teh Ebbil Autocracy and the faceless minions thereof.

Any Givens?: Uniform Battle Bikini or Briefs.  Go watch an episode of Dirty Pair to see what I mean.

Alright... I'm still having some trouble understanding the concepts, but here I go with my character-info. ^_^ Anything that I leave blank, I'll require help filling out. Plus, I'll add certain things, too.

Home Planet: Venrin
Fact 1: This world is larger than most other life-bearing planets, possessing a dense gravity field.
Fact 2: Much volcanic activity happens on it, giving the Ventarii plentiful amounts of thermals to ride.
Fact 3: The planet has two misshapen moons and a beautiful ring of space dust.

Character Name: Fellric Zhin
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Species: Ventarii
Appearance: Gryphon-like.
Special Notes: Since this species dwells on a planet with high gravity, evolution gave them great strength to withstand it. When a Ventarii is in an environment with lesser gravity, it gains a bountiful amount of nimbleness, stamina and strength, though not to a truly superhuman extent.
Past: Fellric served in the fleet of the Ventarii Coalition when the Empire invaded his homeworld. The galactic empire enslaved the Ventarii, dissolved their unified government, and dispersed their various ships throughout the quadrant. Fellric and his family were fortunate enough to flee from the bloodshed, but something awoke within him at the loss of his world.
Motivation: To defeat the empire, thereby freeing Venrin and reuniting his people.
Forte: ???
Forte: ???
Forte: ???
Given Forte: ???
Foible: ???

 :P Obviously, I can't quite grasp the ones I marked with question marks. Besides that, I'm quite prepared. I look forward to any assistance that can be given. ^^

EHHHHHHNNNT!

You didn't read the earlier parts of the thread!  ALL planets are named after elements.  That's one of the core 'facts' of the setting.

Please make a 4d6 roll and a 2d6 roll.

For the rest, you should probably read the rules for PDQ Sharp!  All those terms are explained therein.

o.o!! Oh, alright. My humblest apologies! I'll be sure to read those rules right away!

By the way? Uhm... >.>; How do I roll the dice? I assume it has something to do with the "Dice Bot", but...I haven't the slightest clue how to use it. That is, if that's what I'm supposed to use...

I'm really sorry about the trouble, really. ^_^;; I'm new to all this.

Okay.  Click on the dice bot, right?  Set 'dice' to 4.  Set 'number of sides' to 6.  Press the 'roll the dice' button.  Copy and paste, or write down, or remember your result.  Alternately, you can send me the roll.  My UID is 76.

Repeat, after adjusting the number to roll down to 2.

That should give you a 4d6 roll and a 2d6 roll.

Your facts, by the way, look just fine.  If your character is not humanoid, though, you may have some trouble finding, er, recreational partners.  (But!  I'm not going to disallow it.  Even though you'll look pretty silly in Battle Briefs.)

Please move the conversations over there.

Too much stuff, too little me  :P

I'll try and get it sorted after work this evening. Might need a hand with the character generation, but at the least I can get the description written up.

I can get started with four, so after Hairy all we need's just one.  ;D  I can probably handle up to six, but after that things get a bit too wild for a single GM.

This concept, and this group?  I'm hooked!  May I play, please??? 

Carbon System, Planet 14
Fact 1: Inhabited by large and dramatic warm blooded creatures called 'dinosaurs', some scaled, others insulated by feathers.  The younger mammalian peoples must defend themselves not only from the massive predators, but also from the older and more organized civilization of Raptorans, who consider them good labor and pleasure slaves.   
Fact 2: Geothermal activity gives the world mineral riches to trade with off worlders, as well as many thermals for the larger fliers to use to rise when too heavily laden too do so without. 
Fact 3: The planet's large moon is very close to it's primary, leading to dramatic tidal forces. 

Character Name: Kiya-chirp
Gender: Female
Age: 19
Species: Carbon 14 Cave Girl
Appearance: A particularly muscular and curvaceous, tall golden haired cave girl. 
Past:  Once the mate of a particularly strong and handsome cave man, he was killed by the raptornans and she taken as slave to them.  After being an amusement to the feathered lizards for a while, she slowly became nothing more than another domestic servant.  After a time, she was forgotten enough to slip away with some crates being shipped off planet.  She joined a crew by making herself useful cleaning up and--once she had the knack of it--cooking.  By the time she had the language down, she was psychologically prepared to be her perky self again.  She tends to revert to her original self by working animal noises into her speech, particularly bird chirps, and dreams of a hadrosaur or quetzocoatalus companion from her home world. 
Motivation:
Forte:  Cave Girl (+2)
Forte:  Talks to Animals/Dinosaurs (+2)
Forte:  Domestic Skills (+1)
Given Forte: (Good) Battle Bikini/Briefs (+2)
Foible:  Primative

Hey there panda, the first and only true panda here. [yes I remember you telling me that]

Anyway this sounds like it could be fun, I am interested and getting the pdf to look over...

I have an idea for a character, race and planet.
