Great! You have 21 Development Points to spend before then. The rules are on page 95 I think. You can only improve by +5 in a particular ability or skill per game session, but for purposes of this particular expenditure you can pretend you are spending them over 2 sessions.

You are also now an official Investigative Officer for the Nebula Vista Corporation. This is mostly just a title, but it does mean you can get rides all over the federation.

Also, if you didn't catch it you had:

6 days (minus your advance) x (Your Rank 0 pay grade) of pay
plus
8 x your pay grade as a bonus

Look at Discord for information about armor plating and armor on robots (they can't wear it)

Hi. Just got back from Indy . . a little tired, but I'll try to hang in there for a couple of hours!

I'll be along in a few minutes!

To Rhuvein: I'm sorry for that outburst last night. I have to explain a bit more of the context of this year so you'll understand why it was so sensitive for me. I have a cousin who was restrained and raped by his wife who suffered a psychotic break, and in so doing, began to think delusionally. The police immediately sided against him and put him in jail for months, where he contracted a flesh eating disease in the squalid overcrowded conditions. He has been labeled as "bipolar" or having a "god complex" in the past. Another good friend of mine was in a house fire and suffered a psychotic break when he was trapped in a storm door and almost asphyxiated from smoke (we bipolar people start to think like fiction novels when we are under extreme stress or suffering mental trauma). When the police found him, because he has a history of being labeled bipolar because he sometimes thinks or behaves independent of authority, they immediately blamed him for the fire, he was evicted and incarcerated in a psych ward for 3 months, was then homeless for 6 months, only to finally find a room mate by the grace of God. My mother suffered a break in 2015 due to extreme frustration with aspects of her relationship with my father, and those tensions have been coming up with other difficulties we have been facing financially and with physical health. I didn't mean to get all in your face about it, but I have been patronized and marginalized the moment I begin to show signs of independent thought or action over and over since 2015, after many years of "remission" when I consciously decided to eliminate as much of the stress from my life as I could, and eventually applied for a disability pension. I know in the US a recurring condition like bipolar is basically bankruptcy, and I really feel for people in countries without public healthcare who suffer from these conditions. They are not pathological for the most part, especially nascently. Usually it's just a matter of having a little more sensitivity in one or more senses that can create a feeling of discorporation or surrealness if the processing time of the senses gets out of sync. They can start to spin. Anyway, I wanted to offer my apologies to you for that. I didn't mean to make your night any more stressful than it already might have been, but I was primed for a reaction from the stresses I was undergoing. Again, apologies.

My wife is leaving for Lithuania Sunday night. Not sure if I'll get back from the airport for the game, but I'll try.

We didn't end up playing. I was planning another session of FrontierSpace, but open to other ideas.

For sure!

It was a great game . . well until the Bears decided that they didn't want to win.

No worries, I'll not miss another Sunday gaming for the Bears unless it's a Superbowl Game!

See y'all next time!

:P

Session on 9/23/2018 "Giskard gets ionized!

Back inside the Proxima Ascendant tonight.

(Lost a bunch of notes)

A large crystal covered snail creature scratches its way down the corridor towards us. It comes to a stop near us, and Liz Norton fires a blast into it. Sidewider studies it with her life science skills. She has heard of these things, being kept in better zoos. It is called a Shell maw. They get in corridors and roll over their prey abrading them and crushing them to a pulp they can slurp up. It can bite and crush by rolling. She pokes it with her pole arm.

Murdock steps around the corner, and blasts 5 shells from his auto pistol into the Shell Maw, dealing out 27 points of damage.

Giskard brings some pain, as does Liz and Sidewinder, although Murdock heroically stands in place ready to dodge. Then the Shell Maw rolls over Sidewinder and Liz! Giskard manages to dodge out of the way, then Murdock deals out 10 bullets, hitting with 5. He then takes cover behind an elevator, well out of sight.IT bites at Sidewinder, but she dances to the side, and stabs it with her polearm before dashing close to Murdock.

Then Liz attacks wildly, flaily wildy with her vibro axes, looking like a blender, until she scores a couple of strikes, but then slips on the slime oozing from the wounds of the Shellmaw, landing on her back!

Giskard fires a couple rounds from his rifle, scoring on his second shot. Killing it!

Sidewinder is beginning to feel a little sick. The other 3 make their way straight to sick bay to see if Sidewinder can get some aid, and Liz tries to access log books. He finds logs from a few days ago, but just regular entries, nothing of note.

Murdock seeks loot, errr, clues in crew quarters, seeking also survivors, and prepared for traps. Sidewinder is panicking and runs for our ship. First door looks like Captains quarters, a human female captain, there are pics of her and her family and friends. Theres a terminal in here. There are 2 bodies in the room. They look like they stabbed each other, holding knives, blood covering much of the floor. They are wearing patches on their outfits that says raging rascals. Murdock has heard of them! They are a Mecenary team. Kind of troubleshooters. Usually fairly effective.

Liz tries to check the terminal. She finds information about the cargo, it is top secret research material. There are bots guarding the cargo bay. There is an ionizing radiation chamber the doctor needed.

Murdock locates an intercom and pages the ship for survivors, and hears his voice echoing through the ship. There is no response. He finds a full clip for his auto pistol and loads one up. Sidewinder rejoins us, still feeling bad.

We head down to the cargo deck. Sidewinder opens the door to the cargo bay. There are 3 dead bodies on the fllor, looks ike a battle. It doesn't look like it was fought in the normal way, more like prison rush, holes all over the walls, no discipline to shits, and bodies looked like they hacked on each other. One is wearing crew uniform, a ship security officer. The other 2 are more mercenaries. We check their packs. Murdock scavenges a few bullets.

Then we pass through the airlock. There are many cargo containers, a chamber near the back, and dead bodies strewn around. There are four cybogen bots that fire on us immediately. Sidewinder runs right up to one and stabs at it, but it moves. Liz goes into blender mode on another! In a whirlwind of axes, she chops one to bits. Then sneaks into cover. This does no good, as she takes fire from one robot. She is severely damaged.

Sidewinder takes fire from almost point blank range, She tries to dodge but fails miserably, hitting her head on the barrel, and slips around on the floor.

Murdock tries diplomacy. It works! They lower weapons and tell us to leave the cargo bay, they give no extra info though. They do point to one body as the one who activated, then they killed because he was in the cargo room.

Sidewinder bolts for a one of the exoskeleton cargo loaders. Then climbs in, this triggers the bots to open fire again.

"Surrender to the blender" Liz cries, and charges into another bot. He damages it but it retaliates. She takes heavy damage and sparks begin shooting out of her. Another opens fire on Giskard, and he takes a lot of damage, before he runs for the ionizing chamber, gets inside and some green light comes on. The door is locked on him. Murdock tosses an entanglement grenade at the one closest to him before ducking back into cover. It is encumbered in strands, and Giskard begins taking damage from the ionizing chamber. He tries to break free, and he manages to get outside.

Session ends.
