TSP: Out of Character Discussion

Image Image Image
Far beyond the edge of the inhabited universe lies the Silent Planet, a fertile but isolated world rumoured to be the final resting place for a number of lost interplanetary expeditions. Despite the planet’s deadly reputation, legends of riches, vast resource deposits, and lost alien technology tempt those brave, or foolish, enough to take the risk. Will the Silent Planet’s latest batch of colonists quell its dangerous wildlife and hostile inhabitants, or will they end up as another in a long line of expeditions that have simply ‘gone silent’?

I've been a bit busier than excepted lately, but hopefully things will ease up by this weekend at latest. Let me know when the ambush plan is finalized and I can move things forward to the pirate's arrival. Oleg and Svetlana are in the cargo hold if their input is needed, or I can comment OOC if there are any question, but it seems as if it's mostly sorted out.

No worries, Calvin. We have actually not needed any input this past week from the NPCs. But we are getting close as Caitlin was wondering about magnetic shoes. Maybe those are standard with EVA suits?

Doesn't seem too unreasonable. Something would be needed to keep crew members near the ship if they needed to exit to perform maintenance. Either magnetic shoes or microthrusters could serve that purpose, and either would allow the PCs to avoid the effects of the gravity switching on and off. Maybe Oleg had enough for the former crew, and hasn't been able to sell them off yet.

Another option would be some sort of makeshift solution fashioned from the magnetic locks designed to keep cargo in place during atmospheric entry or something similar to that.

Alright then, we can count on the magnetic boots.

I don't see wanting to use thrusters inside the ship and a jury rig with magnetic cargo crate clamps would really be the same as using cargo nets.

Heh, you guys keep wanting to discuss jury-rigging ideas with my character (the mechanical juryrigging expert) in a different location. I will have to pass this exchange since Caitlin is still working in the Lounge and probably not in ear shot unless people yell.

No worries. I just find it funny. I know that creativity sparks and then you all forgot that Caitlin probably cannot hear.

I've been a bit busy the past few days, and unfortunately haven't had time to write the next post.

What I'm planning to doing is having Oleg and Svetlana give brief replies to the PCs' comments, then fast-forward to the pirate's arrival. If everyone could indicate where their character will be hiding when they arrive, either an exact grid coordinate (using the map in the first post) or an approximate location (ex. secret cargo hold or alcove in front of the loading bay door). I'll post an enlarged tactical map focused on the cargo hold with my next post.

Cool, glad we are going to be rolling soon.

I think we are all in the Secret Compartment according to the plan:
1. Make comms jammer
2. Make anti-nausea drug
3. Set up electric clothesline
4. Hide in secret compartment off cargo hold
5. Deal with Pilot while others are deeper in ship
6. Leave pilot’s body in middle of cargo hold, under electric cable.
7. Hide again in secret compartment
8. Ambush rest of pirates with turning gravity off/on and charging electric cable.

Thanks for distilling all our various thoughts in various posts into a workable plan of action, PMiller. It looks good to me too.

No prob. I wanted to be sure we did not forget something. Our plan was scattered through multiple pages of RPing.

Are we supposed to provide grid coordinates? Delvin and Rian didn't, so I am confused :? Well, I put it in my post anyway.
