The Brass Ferret IC / Needle Down Among Needles
« on: October 14, 2018, 03:13:05 PM »
The Brass Ferret had linked up with another ship, been refueled and returned to the docks on Beylix. David had been made the butt of jokes and Zeke Tapoa had written him the riot act. It had not been a fun time. This was made worse when two of his crew departed the ship for different reasons but it was still a loss of crew. There was still work to be done.

In an effort to get things repaired, Tapoa had given them the scheduled time off plus a day because of the rescue despite the fuel situation. There would be another job in a couple of days and, since the ship was grounded for the repairs, they were not expected to sleep on board if they did not want.

The next morning a couple of crew men started banging on the ventral access ports as the sun was rising. They had arrived to start work early on what was projected to be a twelve hour job. Without much fanfare, if no one arrived to let them enter within a minute, one of them entered the Fractured Field override code and ramp to lower. "FF repair crew! Coming aboard!"

The Allure IC / S1E0 - Preparations To Launch
« on: June 19, 2018, 10:32:17 PM »
It had been an unexpected call from the Companion's Guild for Elena. It was insisted she meet at Avalon Harbor for a matter of importance. The harbor was a port outside of the city center and used more for personal craft than anything. So it was a bit unusual to see a mostly clear dock, a large ship and two individuals, one who was familiar to her, awaiting her arrival.

The woman waiting for her was Charlotte Bruce, a prominent member of the Companion Guild hierarchy. She was dressed in a simple and elegant white dress adorned in a simple crimson sash with a brooch denoting her importance in the Guild. Her reputation for her appearance was certainly upheld.

Accompanying her was an impeccably dressed man in what Earth-That-Was would refer to as a tuxedo. As Elena arrived, he briefly rubbed his hands together and then clasped them behind his back. Both their manners could easily be described as patient but desirable to conclude the meeting.

"Miss Marseille, my name is Richard Court of The House. Pleased to make your acquaintance." He stepped forward to gently ask for her hand and then kissed the back of it. "I believe you know, Miss Bruce."

"Elena and I are aware of each other. Pleased to meet you in person." Charlotte gave the female Companion a warm smile and a brief hug. Charlotte turned and gestured to the ship before returning her eyes to Elena. "There has been some discussions between our two organizations and, combined with some investors, we have elected to send a ship from the Core to circle through the five systems. It will be starting here in Londinium and proceed out to the Rim before returning. The task will involve in creating and growing new business. Dong ma?"

"To this end, we have acquired an Exeter class vessel and had it fitted to our standards. The House will require games of chance be run on regular intervals at stops along the journey. The Companion Guild will require services to be rendered during this time." He produced a device and triggered the cargo bay doors to open. Gesturing toward the ship, he let the two Companions walk in front of him as he continued speaking and followed them on board.

"There are four levels to this ship we have named The Allure. The aft cargo bay area is fitted with storage for gambling tables but this main cargo area can carry any regular cargo as needed. The next deck up is primarily for passengers per the original plans but, given our intention, it is expected half the berths will be for crew. The top deck contains a shuttle for use as needed and the main deck is for most of the crew including your cabin."

Keying off of Elena's look, Charlotte quickly spoke up. "The Guild has requested you take the role of Captain for The Allure along with your other duties. All beds, linens and equipment are new. The kitchen is top of the line with intention a chef equal to using it is hired. The lounge areas are done in oak and leather. There is even an onboard garden for fresh vegetables. Additional food supplies can be stored in the main deck cargo hold."

Richard Court had been patiently standing behind both women as Charlotte had expanded on more of how the ship was fixed up to be more luxury in its interior. He calmly pulled out an envelope with some papers in it along with the device he had used to open the cargo bay door. Holding them behind his back, he watched Elena and waited for a brief moment. "You would be fully in charge and responsible for anything that happens on board."

A smile came across Charlotte's face. "Please tell me your silence is because you are stunned at the situation and not because you have no interest. Elena, would you like the honor of being the Captain of The Allure?"

Ronin IC / S2E8 - To Catch A Glory
« on: June 03, 2018, 04:47:40 PM »
With the cargo bay doors shut and Ronin leaving the Greenleaf Skyplex headed toward Shadow, Lin turned to those in the cargo bay area. "Everyone new get your bags up to the main deck and then meet in Ops in five minutes. Vega, I'll need you to give them a quick tour. The usual stuff: engine room, galley, med bar, maybe the armory .. we'll need to find bunks for everyone."

Lin jogged up the stairway to the main deck then swiftly made his way forward toward his cabin. Passing by the stairwell to the galley, he could hear footsteps which sounded like Velocity's footfalls. Maybe she had come back on board while he was at the Thirsty Camel. A few steps forward more and he saw Alyssa in the med bay. "I thought you were getting off the ship. Or was it just to help your friend find a better facility for treatment?"

The Allure OOC / The Allure
« on: May 11, 2018, 12:50:33 PM »
Hey all,

So the new ship is an Exeter named The Allure!   

The Exeter is a three deck ship with the main deck, a passenger in the middle (complete with almost all amenities) and a cargo deck. There is a quarter deck which is basically a shuttle bay on the top of the ship. You can see the floorplans here: http://www.findingserenity.net/index.php?topic=2151.msg22093#msg22093

The ship has passenger cabins (singles & doubles), a med bay, lots of cargo space, lounge, sizable engine room and will need a number of crew to function. This all means a variety of plots and storylines could happen. I have a couple of different of ideas of what to do.

The ship is owned by investors including the Companion Guild and The House with all taking a fair share of the profits and may require certain personnel or jobs done. The House, as in the Archives by Abbey. exist as a Guild similar to Companions but for professional gamblers and are officially licensed per the Alliance to run games and/or hold gambling events. They are rated on the metrics of Honesty and Reliability. The House also allows them to blackball gamblers or other similar professionals or clients just like Companions do.

I'll start generating ideas for setup, jobs, jumping off point, etc

The characters, at least initially, will have more of a Core influence. As time goes on, this could certainly change but, given the Investor group, it makes the most sense. So this is certainly an opportunity for the crew to get a growing wakeup call as they pass out of the White Sun system where all the Core worlds are and solidly into the Border and Rim planets. In fact, I may plan out an initial route the ship is expected to take. So this arc would certainly not be on the level of action of say Ronin.

I moved the crew list further down in the thread


Ronin IC / S2E7 - Greenleaf Stopover
« on: May 06, 2018, 12:59:14 PM »
Ronin having lifted off of Greenleaf made its way to the Skyplex hovering about the planet. The goal in general for ship was to get a little recuperation in for a day and perhaps pickup a little information along the way.

The Brass Ferret IC / Short Leave On Return
« on: April 23, 2018, 10:27:12 PM »
The Brass Ferret maneuvered around a moon or two as it drew in on its approach to enter Beylix's atmo, not that anyone would necessarily stop them. There were returning from a registered job. A ship named Babylon, a Humpback Class mid-bulk freighter, had disappeared somewhere between Persephone and Verbena roughly three weeks ago. The transponder codes had been given to track her down, determine what had happened, repair if possible and salvage anything if it was unable to be flown.

The ship's records had shown the Captain as Victor Garrison and he had been headed to a new outpost or colony named Copper Ranch that was an out of the way location on Verbena. The Babylon had been found floating with no power when the Brass Ferret reached her. After breaching the hull, the crew quickly ascertained an electrical shortage had shut down the battery, avionics and oxygen supply. Counting crew, there were sixteen dead on board.

The salvage operation became elementary at that point. Other than some personal effects which were most likely of no value, the cargo area yielded some rewards. There were two pallets of work clothing which looked like they were meant for farmers of fishermen. Another pallet of unmarked Alliance military standard uniforms with equipment harnesses and a third pallet with what looked to biogenetically prepared wheat, rye, barley, and oats. In a corner of the cargo bay sat four large cylinder clear topped drums. A quick look showed lots of dead fish inside. The oxygen modules for the units had been wired into the ship's electrical system. The inside of the cylinders had started to grow something despite being sealed. However, in the Captain Garrison's quarters, there was a small safe and a rectangular box which might be valuable. All of the gain was sitting in the cargo area secured so it did not move around.

The Brass Ferret broke toward New Hope Port. Once within view, Fracture Field Industries was easy enough to spot. There were half a dozen landing pads for salvage ships in its employ with crews waiting to help offload whatever was gleaned from their operations. Depending on the size of the ship, sometimes things had to be carted off by hand or an actual forklift could make it into the cargo bay.

Off to one side was the remains of an old Firefly which had broken up when crashed into the dirt. The neck, where the cockpit had been located, was missing and the remains of the engine had part of a debris field which had already been picked over. Zeke Tapoa, owner of Fractured Field, had the remains (primarily the cargo bay) turned into a company owned bar named The Jolly Dog for his employees. Several tables were situated outside but there were tables inside as well. It was a common place for crews to unwind before having to head back out. Just because it was a company bar did not mean it was free but the drinks were very inexpensive for employees.

Sitting in the communications seat, Anwal Coric, resident electronics specialist and the medic for the crew, was explaining himself. A man of average height, rough complexion and an easy, reliable smile, he was trying to make it clear why he was leaving the Ferret behind. "Captain Dave, I tell you some truth. Mr. Tapoa promised me a better opportunity if do this one last job. I will be working bigger ship and not fighting for shower. No more messy injuries just electronics work. There is a Leviathan class leaving in two days and I will be on it." Saying a Leviathan was a bigger ship was like saying the Alliance wanted order in the 'Verse: an understatement.

History of The Brass Ferret

The Brass Ferret is a ship with a history. It was used by Alliance crews during the War to chase down and forcefully board ship by latching on then burning a hole into the hull. After the War, it bounced around before landing in Beylix at a salvage yard named Rusty Bucket Salvage.

Within a few years, it started working for a man named Zeke Tapoa of Fracture Field Industries located in New Hope Port (where the hope is already gone) on Beylix. It is rumored Zeke Tapoa also owns Vintage Treasures Antiques where he is rumored to fence some of the things his ship finds when out on jobs. Or he sells on the black market such as it is on the Rim.

Ship Name: The Brass Ferret

Ship Design: http://www.findingserenity.net/index.php?topic=2151.msg22080#msg22080
This is a small ship which can be run with as few as 2 people (pilot, engineer). Beds can be made into bunkbeds if necessary to accomodate a total of 6 crew. Note the breaching bore on the lower deck for cutting through a ship's hull. There is also a magnetic grapple gun to help facilitate the process. It can travel as fast as a Firefly but with a quarter of the weight.

Most, if not all, crew should be able to walk in the Black.

New Ship Ideas / Different Ship Designs
« on: October 12, 2017, 07:24:29 PM »
This is a place holder at the moment and will be filled over the next hours with a variety of ship designs for perusal. I'll try to resize some of the pictures later but for now I just want to get them all up and then go from there. ... This will be updated constantly until I feel comfortable enough with it that it can be locked. ... Once completed, people can link to the individual post in the thread for most of their ship notices.

Each post below will contain pictures of the ship by model name (including any alternate layouts if possible) and any other stock information about the ship itself including speed, cargo capacity, quarters and possibly history. ...Finally, any previous ships on FS that I know used that ship design.

I will attempt to include minimum number of crew required for the ship to be functional along with most commonly filled positions on the ship.

The only tattoos visible when clothed include: the appearance of green lightning on his left hand coming from underneath his sleeve and the Chinese symbol for Strength on the back of his neck. His age is difficult to determine, certainly older than 25 but younger than 40.
Face Claim:  Donnie Yen

Initial Personality:  Calm, even seeming indifferent, stoic, polite, and patient. A comforting calmness seems to radiate out from his unobtrusive presence. He tends to speak quietly but not softly and sometimes prefers simple gestures when they will suffice.
Underlying Personality:  Like water, he can be completely calm on the surface but inside he is in a constant state of agitation. When his eyes seem to go red with anger, it has become too late to stop him from reacting physically. To those who have saved his life, he becomes exceptionally loyal. To those who he considers friends, the compassionate side will slowly reveal itself sometimes when they are not expecting it to appear. His soul carries the dark burdens of some of his past actions which he will sometimes relent and reveal in moments of privacy.

Known History:  Known member of the Black Mist Yakuza, principally located on Persephone, from a very young age possibly birth. Age: Undetermined, believed to be 32. Bound by Law: Assault (4 times), theft (3 times), racketeering (3 times), War Crimes (Criminal Assault of Alliance Government Personnel -- 7 times), Disruption of Public Services (2 times), and Transporting Illegal Contraband (1 time). Completed sentenced prison term of 5 years in Persephone Penal Facility for concurrent crimes and released May 3rd, 2510. Last known location was the planet Persephone.

Recently, Lin was unceremoniously cut loose and is believed to be dead by the Black Mist Yakuza. At this time, the deal he had brokered for Ronin with the Alliance is all done. Lin has lead Ronin to its freedom from the Alliance at this point and they are no longer bound to any organized crime syndicate nor to the government in any capacity.

Other History:  Orphaned at the approximate age of 5 and adopted by Fu Kuei, an elder with the Black Mist Yakuza. Since his adoption, he has always been an advocate of them as they are the only family he truly knows. He was raised, trained, and given every educational advantage in an effort to make him one of them. He became a “collector” for them with the local shop owners. With great frequency, he became a warrior for them in fighting other criminal organizations, sometimes this included rival tongs. After spending the first four years of the war in prison, he emerged a harder man with less compassion. With the war, there were less Alliance troops in certain less reputable areas of the Verse and the Black Mist Yakuza took advantage. Lin Kuei did his part and with the occurring of Unification, he became a fearsome opponent of the criminal organizations. Now, Lin Kuei has achieved his freedom from the Black Mist Yakuza and considers them to be former employers who he owes nothing.

Skills and Strengths:  With the ability to incapacitate an opponent so he remains alive or kill him in a blink of an eye, he moves to commit the maximum damage possible in the shortest time to end the fight including paralyzing organs or muscles, rupturing joints, breaking bones, and using atemi (vital point pressure attacks) in the case of multiple opponents. Speed is his ally in a fight. Lin Kuei has studied the following martial art forms: tai chi, kung fu, jeet kune do, eskrima, and krav mahga. He has been known to use improvised weapons when necessary. His skills tend to be average in everything else but unarmed combat which is exceptional and his knowledge of plants for poisons & antidotes is capable as well. As a result of his training and knowledge regarding human anatomy, he has developed his abilities in both acupuncture & acupressure. He is very capable with a firearm but finds them distasteful. Adept at tracking people as well

Being on board a ship and running Ronin for the length of time he has, Lin Kuei has now learned how to fly and repair his ship. He is not a genius in either of those capacities. He can fly, land, take off but with an average capability and is not a stunt pilot or anything similar. His mechanical ability is mainly relegated to maintenance work but he can easily aid a skilled mechanic. His knowledge of electronics is primarily in just using it. However, he has gotten better at cooking and can render first aid well enough.

Weaknesses:  As noted above, with the exception of unarmed & improvised melee combat, there is very little where he is above average. He disdains guns as vulgar preferring stealth in order to catch his opponents unaware. He can be too impulsive when dealing with those who cast aspersions against himself or those who have saved his life; this can also include members of the Yakuza.

My other site and also an affiliate of Finding Serenity:


The Crusaders and their Organization are a United Nations sponsored group that tackles all manner of Villainy and has their Rogues Gallery to deal with at the most inopportune times. Established in 1989, they've been in operation for over two decades tackling everything you can imagine from blue collar crime to white collar crime to international spy rings to terrorist financiers to warlords or terrorists and even stuff from other dimensions either by heading there or the enemy coming to them.

The Crusaders have faced it with strength and resolve and, through it all, they have been the steadfast stopping point. They've chosen to be heroes, chosen to put themselves in the damage path to protect those less capable or willing to protect themselves, chosen to risk themselves and their lives to protect the average person so they can continue without worry in their daily lives. Now, no one is perfect and mistakes do get made. But heroes choose to get back in the saddle once they are knocked out of it and keep fighting. 

Are you able to step forward and step up to protect those that need it? Come find out!
