GTB of 2525 (IC)
« on: September 08, 2013, 02:02:59 AM »
Weeks have gone by since you first heard of the Grand Mutiny, as it has recently been called, and now the Grand Mutiny of 2525 has been officially conceived upon the open movement of pirate vessels against the Mirager clan. During these first few days you have found yourselves with plenty to do, between taking special jobs from various entities to directly supporting the malicious groups.

Oh, but you are tired of the little stuff. It is time to go the next extreme. You will do that by getting on the only ferry to Trelwenia, one of the largest pirate ruled islands and the location of the Mirager Clan's main hideout and headquarters to all their operations.

You board the small balloon ship, "The Fair Angel" and prepare yourselves for what lies ahead. In fact, you haven't yet decided what you will do yet, but the important part is getting there. The next is finding the best contract.
*  *  *

After nearly a day of floating in the air, Trelwenia can finally be seen on the horizon. As you approach it, the rail system connecting Trelwenia's big island to all its surrounding sister islands start to become visible. As does the smoke.

It will be a long time yet before The Fair Angel docks at one of Trelwenia's northern islands and you could already tell that trouble was happening all over. The ship's edges were crowded with onlooking passengers who all looked like they'd as soon blacken your eye as shake your hand.

A shout from the forward end of the ship breaks your thoughts and when you look up in that direction, it becomes instantly clear what the man was shouting for. A great maroon colored tear shaped ship flew far ahead; it was on the approach.

The Fair Angel was just a cargo ship, so it had no ship defenses other than a light shield installed inside its balloon, which wouldn't do the rest of the ship any good. The passengers began running down into the ship's belly; where there were cargo containers for smuggling people and other things- though generally not necessary around the Pirate Coasts. Today, they had a purpose.

And with that, I welcome you to my very first Legend game, The Great Toilet Bowl of 2525. Here, in the IC- or "in character" thread, as you all probably know, is where the whole story is driven by me, and by you.

I have not designated any location for any of you, but you are restricted to the ship. This ship has four main areas: the weather deck, the captains cabin located back of the ship on the weather deck, the cargo hold which makes up the bulk of internal space, and the crew quarters which is behind the cargo hold and under the captain's cabin. The weather deck has a raised platform in the back, making the captain's cabin roof and also where the ship's wheel is for maneuvering the ship- The captain is currently holding that post.

Rocky stood on the foredeck, looking out at the incoming threat.

Well now.  She hadn't hardly punched anyone this whole trip. How nice of those fellas to volunteer!

Character introduction: 

He can give out two 2nd level spells.  Either (natures power +2 to hit, +2 damage, and +2 save DC’s of SU, SLA, and spells) or  (flame blade [cold] +2 damage weapon becomes cold).  If you want one just post that you take one and I will keep track.


Bogda is a small lizard type man of the race Sharka.  He looks a little like Yoda from Star Wars except he is young.  He loves nature and is a monk by training.  He is slightly uncomfortable with areas with lots of technology and prefers to keep to nature.   He carries a little potted plant of a bonsai tree with him on his journey.  He knows the monk iron shirt technique and fights without visible armor, he toughens his skin with mental focus.   He has a magical launcher weapon that he uses to hurl balls of frosty energy at his opponents.  He is blind but that doesn’t seem to affect his ability to see.    When he “looks” at you he seems to have an understand of everything about you and an extreme sense of confidence.    You think he might even know what you’re thinking before you think it.   In general he is a goodly nature and tries to help people out. 

Name: Bogda

Class Monk  Discipline of the serpent(medium)/Reign of Arrows (slow)/Shammy Spells (fast)
Race - Sharka - Mutated human with Lizard DNA.  Ends up looking somewhat like a small yoda like creature.  They are small, have scaly green skin and sharp pointy teeth.   They are a race that lives in swamps and natural areas.  They are one with nature and are quite wise.  They have great internal strength and good fortitude.  They unfortunately are quite ugly and not very civilized and suffer a penalty to interactions. 

+2 Con +2 Wis -2 Char
Size: small
Type: humanoid
Swim
+1 to hit
Bonus feat – Any


If we are taking legendary feats:

Woldhewn: You halve energy damage and magic damage you would take, after [Resistance] and other effects that would reduce damage.

Bogda asks if there is anyone who can fight and helps organize a defense.  Woman and children hide there.  Fighting men organize a defense here.   He gets in a covered position where he can aim out to make ranged attacks if the pirates leave themselves exposed, like trying to board.

Grawlix is awoken by the commotion aboard the ship, and takes a few moments to fully awaken. When he does, he sees the oncoming ship, and grabs the large heavy object next to him.

Gerrik leans out of the weather deck, his hands, flesh and mechanical both, digging into the deck's railing as he cranes his body to get a better view of the approaching ship. Oh, man, this is just his luck--a chance for air combat against overwhelming odds, and he's just a crummy passenger. Nevertheless, he heads toward The Fair Angel's steering platform. Y'know, just in case.

A crew member responds to Bogda, "Don't worry about fighting yet, if it comes to that then everyone on board will be fighting. For now, focus on hiding down below. Our captain should be able to smooth the situation out."

The crew member then looks towards the approaching vessel, his eyes suddenly opens wide and be begins running aft.

Other crew members are shouting, "Take cover!" They immediately lay face down flat on the deck and covering their heads with their hands as a large missile launches and begins flying towards The Fair Angel. It takes only seconds for the missile to impact.

Some crew members are sent flying into the air as the ship jerks suddenly from the strike. The missile struck near the bow on the starboard side, penetrating the ships hull into the cargo hold.

Grawlix nearly bashes his head open on the ceiling from the sudden jerk. He hears commotion farther forward in to cargo hold as war errupts.

The sounds of gun blasting, metal clashing, and screams of wounded can be heard all over coming from the cargo hold. Smoke billows out the ships bow and ladder wells.

The crewmembers on the weather deck get back to their feet and begin running for the ladder well. All of them brandishing sabers and various arms.

Grawlix tightens his grip and follows the crew. There's no way he's sitting this one out.

Bogda starts complaining about being out of the forest and then calms himself down.  There are people to protect, he runs toward the danger!

Rocky skids a bit across the deck with the impact, but quickly regains her balance.

"C'mon you bastards," she hollers, shaking a fist at the incoming vessel, "get over here so my boot can kiss you goodnight!"

Gerrik barrels down the deck toward the impact site, rushing past the ladders thronged with crewmembers on their way down. When he's above the missile hole, he hops over the weather deck's railing and swings himself down through the smoke and into the cargo bay.

Athletics*

10+20=30

*Gerrik can always take 10 on Athletics checks because of Esoterica Radica.

Here is the graphic, would have had it sooner but a certain somebody had to go and fly all over the place and make messes.  :P
That is really cool btw.

- In regards to the map, an 'X' is a corpse of whatever and is considered difficult terrain.
- You can move into any place you see fire but moving into the fire will require you to reflex save to avoid burning and is also difficult terrain.
- Any squares with the grey of smoke will proffer limited visibility, but at the risk of suffocation.

- Your characters are tagged with a two letter abbreviations to your character names (first and last letter) and you will typically be in blue/green colors as well as any designated allies
- Enemies or hostile creature will be depicted in red, orange, or yellow
- Neutral ambiguous creatures will be the gray dots
- Any other color scheme will be used to separate groups

If I misplaced you, I apologize. I situated everyone on the starboard side, the side facing the apposing ship, as that is what you were all looking at.

Gerrik manages a dramatic plunge through the burning ring in the ship's side. As he bravely swings himself over, he sees the missile tube is still sticking out of the hull. Looking deeper and through the thick smoke, he discovers the missile is some kind of pod with a series of gaping hatches.
Fire has spread wide across this area creating thick smoke screens in further areas. Not far from the pod, you see the mangled corpses of several passengers. The smoke clears a moment, with enough time to see a small group of short dumpy looking robotic shapes in the forward most space, also there is another robot directly behind the collapsed remains of the starboard ladder well. None of the robots appear to have notice you yet, but you consider that landing on the pod or in the fire will likely give you similar results.

Grawlix opens the closest door leading out of the crew's quarters which lets in more of the sounds of battle. As he steps out, he notices smoke billowing in from a gap between two large crates and then his eye immediately catches on the robot at the far starboard end of this passage way. The robot apparently notices him too.

Bogda reaches one of the ladder well's, but finds the 10ft drop to be just that. The rest of the walk ladder had crumpled to the bottom. A ten foot drop should be no problem, but you don't know what kind of situation that would put you in.

Rocky sees that the weather deck is mostly empty now aside from a couple crew members on high alert with weapons drawn. One crewmember is seen running towards the port ladder well. She notices a peculiar short and green pointy eared creature standing looking down into the starboard ladder well. She also notices some guy casually committing suicide as he jumps over the burning(!!!) portion of the ship.. Wait... WHAT?!?

Spoiler
Sakuuya and Qazarar, go ahead and make your initiative checks
Also, for Sakuuya: Unless Gerrik doesn't need to breathe, he will begin suffocating after a number of rounds equal to your constitution modifier until you can get into cleaner air; however, you are currently benefiting from some amount of concealment.

I will update the graphic after everyone has posted at least once. Meanwhile, i'll describe.

Bogda concentrates for a very brief moment as he gets a feel of the area. With your attuned senses you now know there is a robot directly below you, and you believe it is facing aft. You are aware of at least two additional robots facing away from you, and one appears to be fighting with another creature. The way the third robot is moving, it could be in a fight as well. There are multiple bodies littering the floor as well as the broken down step-ladder. As expected, there is a lot of fire from where the missile struck and slowly spreading. You also find the missile itself and it is peculiar. It is hollow with multiple hatches that are opened.
