Re: 1110/136 Boxed In OoC

Sorry that I haven't been online more. New job has been exhausting. Then this past weekend even more exhausting (but fun). Ran my first Traveller adventure in 27 years on Saturday. Alan brought over an HP-15c for my engineering collection. (Thanks!!) Got a call from my piano technician asking if I w...

Re: 1110/136 Boxed In

Elliott responds, "I can serve as XO, or if you want to do it, Greg, I'll happily serve under you as third officer." He turns to Geris: "And, by the way, I second the motion that you take the Captaincy, Geris. During that earlier mess, you certainly proved you can keep a calm head during an unpleasa...

Re: 1110/136 Boxed In OoC

BTW, "in escrow" does NOT mean the funds are unavailable for investing in speculative cargoes. Until our characters know what's happened to our two shipmates (or have waited so long we've given up), the shares should earn dividends and the funds should be used to increase the value of the company --...

Re: 1110/136 Boxed In OoC

I'd be more comfortable with closer to a normal crew complement. From a game-world perspective, less chance to get overwhelmed when things go wrong... player John would like to avoid any negative DMs, but more importantly, Elliott wouldn't want us to ever find ourselves short-handed. * * * BTW, you ...

Re: 1110/136 Boxed In OoC

Meaning we need a new Eng, and either a new pilot or Navigator. NPC at first, but would be wonderful if we could add players. I nominate Geris for C.O. -- either Greg or Elliott can be X.O. I'd guess (unless you just want to stick to your guns, Alan -- pun intended) that Greg is the better choice, a...

Re: 1110/136 Boxed In OoC

PS: Do any of the players want to look online and see if there's a free tool or website that we could use to select an optimal load? (i.e. input total dtons volume, give it list of loads we're willing to accept, with price weightings, and output the mix with the highest total price? It's a basic "pa...

Re: 1110/136 Boxed In OoC

I couldn't resist jumping onto the forum even though I'm trying to get out the door to work! :lol: I like the way things are heading with the Scout. For shipments: Elliott recommends we start with the most profitable items and work downward until we've got a full cargo bay. Avoid things that could e...

Re: 1110/136 Boxed In OoC

I'm all for taking whatever dangerous assignments they're willing to offer us, in return for being cleared of all charges. Being paid well certainly sweetens the pot. (BTW, IMHO this is a great way to get into some real adventures. Surreptitiously "drafted" by a government agency to do "off book" wo...

Re: New Job

Update: I'm not quitting the campaign -- far from it! -- but the new job is going to be taxing coming up to speed over the next few days. So I'm probably dropping off the radar for 2-3 of them. If Alan want's to play Elliott for me, feel free to have him do so. Between you (GM) and he, I'm sure you'...
