You know, all the information you've been asking for is in the thread: the crew types and stat maximums are listed in one of Rex's first posts, and reading over people's posts would tell you who's playing what. It's only two pages long, and it's all information you'd want to know to play in the game; it's not that bad a read.

Some information isn't listed though, such as how reloading works here...




Name: Vash Tamrion
Class: Soldier


PHYSICAL
Strength: 4
Agility: 4
Dexterity: 5

MENTAL
Willpower: 2
Intelligence: 2
Charisma: 3
Perception: 5




SKILLS

Guns= 4
Combat: 4
Heavy Weapons: 2
Intimidation: 1
Leadership: 1
Intrusion: 2
Observation: 3



MERITS

REPUTATION: Vash's fame had grown as he began to show his outstanding performance with a gun. Born into a wealthy family, he left all the wealth and riches behind and instead chose the simple life of a soldier, for reasons unknown to many. One particular incident earned him most of his fame. Serving as part of the guard of a famous and wealthy politician, they were ambushed by bandits and pirates. Fighting to protect him, an overhead beam collapsed between the guard forces and the politician. Most of the soldier forces decided to abandon and flee while they could, as they were outnumbered and they couldn't waste their time looking for the politician. Ignoring this, Vash decided to follow his duty and bravely began to try to shoot away and dig through the collapsed ruins so he could get to the politician. Digging him out of 'his grave' Vash ran for the nearest emergency escape ships. Encountered by several bandits he barely made it out alive, with the politician. In gratitude to his savior, the politician offered more wealth to Vash, but he refused. Seeking another way to repay him, the politician instead spread the news of his heroic deeds throughout all the systems he could, maybe even exaggerating some and telling everyone of how fearsome, spectacular, dutyful, and invincible Vash was.

CONTACT: One of Vash's former girlfriends was Catelyn Ukira, an officer in the Alliance. He tries to maintin all his relations with her, and tells her he's still loyal to her and they could maybe even get married after he gets enough funds. Using this to his advantage, Vash gathers priceless information on the Alliance from her.

Skills with an equal sign you cannot add a point to. They're set at that and can't be changed. Meaning you cannot put that point in Guns, it's set at 4.

There will be a Main Rules thread explaining the functioning of the game, this is just for Character Creation, I believe.

Shaftoe it is said, was born on a remote mining station, far out beyond the core planets. It was on this station that he saw his parents and the rest of the crew attacked and eaten by reavers. How he escaped, is the stuff of legend. How he came to be known is a much more interesting story. Wandered for a few years, until the outbreak of the war. Alliance tried to shut down his moonshine running trade, so he joined up with the Browncoats. The worst move the Alliance made. He was highly trained and was quickly admitted to the ranks of the Special Operations and Recognisances. And operate he did. Who knows how many Alliance officers met their end at his hand. After the loss of the war, Shaftoe continued doing what he did best. Killing men. They say he stands over 6 feet, and if you see his black eyes peering out at you from beyond his long shaggy hair and long beard, run, and run fast because he will come for you.
He has been last spotted as the First Mate on a space freighter. But donít let that fool you. He hasnít let up, he will never let up. And he will come for you if you cross him. So donít cross him.

Indeed, the Main Rules thread is on the way and will explain everything (hopefully). Otherwise, this should be pretty similar to Star Wars, Vlad.

Only one question about Vash. In Combat schticks, he's got Street Fighter and Whirling Strike. The first is unarmed only, the second is armed only. Sure you want that?

And Shaftoe looks ready to kill everyone around him, Stefan.

Also, there is a question that I wish for ALL players to consider...

Why did you join up with Gan Ying? If ye be a crewmember, why work for Kelly? If ye be a passenger, what caught your eye?

...You know, for the hell of it, I'll answer that question in character.

"What caught my eye?" Harmony asks, looking around, "Well... I need money, like everyone else. But this job in particular? The ship, really. It's packing some pretty up to date hardware, and it was that or some run down Series 3... But what really sold me was once I had a tour of the cockpit... well, I just had to. It just seemed like the right fit, you know? The Gan Ying's as close as I'm going to get..." She trails off wistfully for a second, and then shakes her head, seeming to snap back to the matter at hand. "Oh, and Kelly? Well... he doesn't ask questions, and he's paying me. Not as much as that Series 3 guy, but... well, his ship was in need of help, and I didn't like his mechanic. He was kind of... overly tattooed, and I don't think he really knows as much as he thinks he does."

Basically, why not? A chance to see new things and it just happened to be the right ship in the right place at the right time.

Kenneth's been travelling for a while to get away from the Core. Gan Ying just happened to be the last ship he chartered on his way to the Border Planets. He's currently acting as crew, fixing folk up on the ship until he finds where he feels he's supposed to be.

Alan has nowhere else to go. Kelly's job offer meant his first real home in a year so he took it. Once he had settled in Alan had no wish to leave and be forced to meet new people. Two years of service has left Alan very loyalty to Kelly and he is still thankful having for a place to stay and a place where he can let his mechanical talents be put to good use.

It could be escorting an official or transferring valuable supplies which just so happens to be near where raven is.

MONEY: thanks to his father, raven was able to plan the heist of the century, one which set him up for life money wise.
Although he has terrible luck when it comes to gambling, this is why he likes being paid for his work.
So he doesnít run out of money.

BULLET TIME
EAGLE EYE
GUNSLINGER
STRAIGHT SHOOTER

Choose 3 Combat schticks.
Martial Artist
Dodge and Weave
Leaping Attack

Smugglers, being well-travelled, can make rolls on non-combat skills which they do not possess at no penalty.

BACKSTORY

Raven was a military brat as he was growing up he moved in total 20 times before he came of age.
When he left home he fell into a bad crowd and was doing less than legal things.
He has never committed to a side thou, only to those who paid.
Once he was caught the first time he truly saw how the alliance justice system worked and how unfair it is.
He managed to get out on a technicality, (his father).
Heís spent the last few years visiting the outer rim planets and moons in search for his mother which he was told abandoned him when he was born.
However he found out his father was lieing to him so Raven is seeking the truth.

Welcome, Gazzar! Your character sheet seems to be in order. Any reason that Raven decided to join the crew of Gan Ying?

-

Let's take a current look at our roster, then...

CREW

Raven (Smuggler) - Gazzar
Harmony Cien (Pilot) - Thraxis88
Shaftoe (Soldier) - Tptmanno1
Vash Tamrion (Soldier) - Spidervlad
Kenneth Lloyd (Medic) - General Kaliero
Alan "Overhaul" Prowler (Mechanic) - Craft

PASSENGERS

Nadra Bell (Companion) - Peach
Christopher Jackson (Drifter) - Herr Rob
Gabriel Thornby (Drifter) - Bardock42

-

I'm thinking 9 players is perfect. I'll get the Main Rules posted and we'll push into the Prologue episode soon.

Yeah, I'm thinking I'll keep Street Fighter and Whirling Strike. Just in case I find myself without a weapon to bash someone's head with.

I'm noticing a rather frightening gender divide, here... one female passenger and crewmember, and then eight guys, counting the captain? Those long trips through the black are going to get a mite interesting...
