Online game, Friday nights - ENDED

The party is currently on Mars, trying to get into a bit of gatecrashing.

This game uses Skype for voice chat and Maptool ( http://rptools.net/ ) for dice rolling. It is at roughly 1800 PST / 1900 MST / 2000 CST / 2100 EST (9:00pm for most people), give or take an hour. It is a "standard" Firewall campaign, so far as any Firewall missions could possibly be called standard.

I am "ssfsx17" on Skype

This game will be starting next week, September 3. There is still just enough room for one player.

Re: Online game, Friday nights

Hey there.

I don't know if you still have room for one more person, but I would LOVE to play. The only problem is that I would not be able to start until next Friday ( 9/10) because I will be at PAX this weekend.

If you have room and will take me, let me know.

Thanks.

Sure - you are welcome to join

Firewall is a decentralized organization in which people come in and out of active duty all the time

1 point of Lunar-Langrange Alliance reputation (not in the book) and 1 point of Firewall reputation (i-Rep) to all characters. If you are using pre-gens, this reputation gain will not carry over to new characters.

3 rez to all participating players

Re: Online game, Friday nights

The game is officially full. Combat-oriented roles are also completely filled.

Re: Online game, Friday nights

Awesome. Thanks for having me. When I get home from PAX on Monday night I will create a character. So since all the combat roles are filled, what does the group already have for non combat centric people?

ssfsx17 ssfsx17's picture
Re: Online game, Friday nights

Most of the characters are well-networked with Autonomists, Militaries and to some extent, Criminals. One of them has an excellent Infosec skill as well as a Programming (Nanomachines) skill. I'm pretty sure that one of the new characters will have some xenoarchaeology skills as well. Some of these characters were pre-gens who may be replaced by different characters in the next session, so it's hard to designate what sort of non-combat roles really need to be filled at this point.

Re: Online game, Friday nights

One possible "missing role" that came up last session was a scientist type. Someone with a portable lab and the skills to tear down, examine, and analyze infected people/synths, weird objects, and unknown nanotech would have been useful (although I wouldn't suggest making this your only specialty). We were able to work around it by relying on Firewall for remote analysis but that might not always be practical.

Another possible role is some kind of "face", someone with a lot of contacts and the skills and bioware to exploit and manipulate them and to deal with other social situations. To some extent everyone has some of this, but we didn't have a specialist and there are certainly time when these kinds of skills could be useful.

Re: Online game, Friday nights

Sounds like a face type will be totally doable for me.

Treebore Treebore's picture
Re: Online game, Friday nights

We can definitely use someone who can make us good money and get us good gear (contacts) so we can work our way up to being super elite "fixers". Otherwise we will likely always be scraping somewhere along the bottom of the barrel.

Re: Online game, Friday nights

I just noticed that rep with the LLA falls under c-rep. Did you intend to separate out the LLA as an entity that way?

You're right, it does. For the purposes of this campaign, the faction reputations would be a specific subset of c-rep, to represent the inter-factional tensions that are described in Sunward.

It turns out that bioconservative terrorists are just mooks, they're just there to get killed.

2 i-rep and 5 rez to all participating characters, 1 temporary moxie to those who flexed their motivations

Very lucky for the party that the exsurgent creature was stuck inside a sealed body container

TerraGenesis has promised the party some spots in future gatecrashing expeditions, as a reward for completing the adventure

Also, there are now two player slots open, due to inconsistencies in some other players. Roles that haven't been filled yet that are potentially useful are: AI, psychosurgeon, investigator / ego hunter, async

It's all good, it happens to at least one player for every single RPG I have ever run in which I took one session off.

Session was cancelled due to attendance, but hopefully next week the game will get back into high gear

The party successfully contained and defeated a swarmanoid hacker who was "possessing" other people and making them murder yet more people.

Re: Online game, Friday nights

The vid did very well.

Spent 2 RP to increase my f-rep to 99 and 5 RP to give myself 5000 credits. I also spent my last 10 RPs to increase my Viral Marketing skill to 60.

3 rez to all participating characters

2 characters resleeved for the first time in the campaign, although purely voluntarily for the purpose of a dangerous mission

Kierstyn's absence from the session can be explained as fending off the paparazzi and getting some semblance of privacy back, thus enabling her to rejoin the group next week

They were everywhere with their Gnats and Specs. I had to activate the nanoparticle filtration in my condo to keep them out.

(G/F came over last minute, but I should be back next week.)

Hi,

it looks like the team is full full, however I'd like to come by as a specator if that's ok with you. I just sent a request to the GM to add his Skype contact (shown on RPGloop).

Thanks !

Thanks to good use of each party member's strengths, strategic use of Moxie, and really good luck, the space vampires are defeated and the party has a cure to one very specific strain of the virus.

Did everyone get murdered?

Sorry I wasn't there, the girlfriend came over to watch "A Christmas Story."

I will be there next week, assuming we aren't starting a break for the holidays early.

The party avoided aggro-ing the exsurgents and ran back to safety.

The game is indeed on this Friday - it will be the last game of 2010 before resuming in 2011. And, I will try to resist heading off to see Tron: Legacy on its opening night.

Re: Online game, Friday nights

The game is still full, unless you want to make a character who is either an async or an AGI (which would put the party at 6 players).

ssfsx17 ssfsx17's picture
Re: Online game, Friday nights

No game tonight, due to a combination of people not feeling well, someone's Skype crashing, and some people getting on as others were getting off.

Next week will be extremely interesting, especially if the party keeps exploring Earth.

240,000 credits worth of Earth artifacts, un-traded

Priceless memories of being on Earth, un-sold

Last but not least: This game does have room for one more player. Combat roles are totally full, and social, hacking, sneaking, and medical roles are filled by at least one character each. The party is currently in Earth Orbit / Lunar space.
