    I can go either way.
    Either Akila lets Tabitha use her cabin, apart from sporadic sleep Akila probably doesn't use it much anyway and she probably feels enough unconscious guilt about taking her away from everything she knows that she'll just let her take over it with her stuff.

    On the other hand, having 3 spare cabins for space for an occasional passenger or two might be worthwhile. It's not our focus, but it might be nice to have the option. Not sure what we'd get rid of though?

    Chapel's probably the best thing to get rid of. We don't have to sacrifice it if we switch our nicer rooms into those extra rooms with just a bed, but I have a feeling our teen might go crazy if she doesn't have enough private space to call her own.

    As much as I like the idea of having a chapel aboard, it makes the most sense to replace it with another set of berths. We'll just have to pray harder. ;)

    Alright, hand's feeling much better (still not 100% tho), so I think we'll finally be able to get this up and running around Friday.
    So until then, any further customization or changes wanted to the ship?

    Aside from swapping out the chapel for another set of Berths I think we're good? Though I'll see if anyone else wants to chime in.

    So, for some reason, I created a separate account at some point recently; I don't remember doing it, and I've been posting as davyjones. This account, seatyger, is my normal account; I hope you folks don't mind me switching over to this one for use in the game.

    Original-post have now been updated!
    Chosen patron and nemesis specified and the removal of the chapel and addition of an extra cabin module, giving a grand total of 8 sleeping spaces. Oh and a debt that goes about up by another 15.000 birr. which is 750 birr per month.

    Final chance to call dibs on a chance to further changes to the ship, as well as specific character-edits.

    Also, anyone got thoughts on a description of what you lot's ship actually looks like? retrofitted astroid? Former-destroyer-turned-salvage-boat? Other?

    First idea: A heavy-bow ship that was used in asteroid mining; it had a reinforced bow that allowed it to move smaller asteroids out of orbit for capture or exploitation.

    Why, yes, I did just watch Rogue One and was inspired by the Hammerhead corvette... ;)

    There aren't orks in this setting, so no flames or 'red' or whatnot doesn't make it go faster.

    I know it's kind of a week after original setup for start of the game, but I'll extend the timeframe for IC creation and such until this Friday.
    It's official that I have a severely sprained ankle and I sorta want to be closer to 100% before I begin typing up IC stuff.

    Mainwhile, if any of you got questions further pertaining to the setting or other early-game questions, feel free to ask. At worst I'll merely say 'no comment' in case it'd spoil something really interesting.

    Hey everyone! here's the IC, finally!

    Yup, my foot finally stopped feeling like it was gonna fall off just by mildly moving it, so finally got around to finishing up the IC.
    Remember, most things need not be rolled for. If you wonder if something needs to be rolled for, ask. If you unexpectedly get told you need to roll when trying to do something, you're allowed to withdraw the action you wanted to do and instead not do it. Say you wish to just over a small pit and don't expect the need to roll... and I then call for a roll, then you're free to basically NOT try the jump at all (and just edit your IC post with what you wanna do instead).
    Remember, keep all dice rolls to the OOC if possible. and post ICly once you've figured what your roll means and what effects it's got.

    Ramad isn't the most connected of people, so he probably wouldn't have any job contacts. I mean, he might, but probably not. Any job offers our friendlier characters might have secured us beforehand?

    It can also be stuff like checking the Bulletin newsboards, the contractor network, etc. There's plenty of other ways, than just 'I know a guy'.

    Yeah! I can definitely come up with something if it comes to that, but I do want to ask if the other characters who are more likely to come into this with a plan might have a plan already, hah. They'd be the ones speaking their mind in-character before me in that case, I feel.

    I was thinking that Fahim may have insight on reaching out to salvage companies/refurbishers; he may not have contacts, but he knows how that whole system works.

    In this case, we could say he has a lead on a hulk to which a refurbishing company has salvage rights, but is in need of a team to pull essential parts from the reactor.

    I would call this a Technology roll

    That's two successes.
    Wanna have a contract off that is regular in pay, but easier/other bonus given? Or would you prefer a better-paying offer that might have harsher consequences/difficulties?

    Hey now that's YOUR choice to make.


    If that's so, then you have a reserved Job-offer where there's a salvage-request for the Main Bridge of an old Portal Wars Era Dreadnought Class Battleship. It's Engine-core exploded as it passed through a Portal... but for some reason that exact same vessel has been reported as still being intact and located, orbiting the Empty Portal in the Menkar System, A Portal that seems to have no pair to go to, since no one has ever returned from travelling through it. Some say it leads to the heart of the Darkness in the Void, while others speculate it leads to a whole other collection of star systems. A Fourth Horizon if you wish.
    For those of you who don't know, Menkar is the upper-west-most star system in the Third Horizon, Connected through Portal with Daybul and the rest of the Sadaal Route. It's known for having a Monolith like the one found on Kua (the planet the Coriolis orbits, although this one is tilted), as well as being the end of the Third Horizon, as well as having once held colonies with humans in them, alas no longer so. (if you wish to know more about Menkar, page 312 core rules)

    For whatever reason, this Dreadnought Class Battleship has just recently been located by the Job-giver, and you will have had signed a non-disclosure agreement prior to receiving this info. In modernized terms, that's a Class V Battlecruiser, originally from the First Horizon, as in Earth and it's attached Star Systems. It's a job that must be accepted today, within the hour, or it will be given to another salvage crew.
    The Job-Giver is Yusef Kander who is part of The Consortium, specifically The Foundation. They have intents on using the bridge of the old Dreadnought as both a war memorial, as well as part of a museum piece that can be interactively used, linked up to show simulations, allow for battle games with bridge crews being made up of visitors, as well as specific use as simulation training for Fleet Captains and the like. At least that's the official notation in the job offer.
    Beyond that, there's a request to record the entire process as well as internal records of it's status, as well as salvage of any other still-functional components and onboard items that could be of value. Anything seen as non-essential is free for the crew to appropriate for themselves (aka. advanced weaponry and other such high-end value items. You'll know what can be kept once you find it, if you find any such things).
    The pay is 50.000 Birr for the Bridge, with additional payment for additional finds. All transport fees will be dealt with by The Foundation, although only for the jumps required for the direct line to Menkar. No deviation allowed. There's also a requirement to get this finished before the end of the Segment, as in you have 37 days to finish (a Segment is 37 days, a Triad is thus 111, and a full Kuan Year, or Coriolis Cycle as it's called, is 336 days due to 3 individuals days outside each Triad which celebrates special events which is The Founding, the Cyclade (aka. New Years) and Pilgrimaria.)

    Uhhh.... one thing. I think it'd be a good idea to edit your IC post, cuz the details about the job is a strictly non-disclosure. only your own teammates may know about the job offer.
    I did state the whole NDA part.... I hope. At least I should have done so as part of the Job offer.
