The Sunday afternoon gaming group played on Sunday (the 16th of April), and continued on with their campaign of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG of the Arabian Nights in space. You can read about the previous game session by following the link. This post is somewhat long, so I’ve put it behind a cut for those who don’t want to read about my roleplaying game campaigns.

CHARACTERS
Dalal al Yousfana (SteveR) – Scientist (Technician)
Ziva dariBoukhari (Tammy) – Negotiator (Peddler)
Ithara Kalarash (NPC1) – Pilot (Freighter Pilot)
Palan Mumrabh (NPC2) – Soldier (Mercenary)
Skot Habibar (NPC3) – Ship Worker (Dock Worker)

First Triad, Dancer Segment, Day 10, CC 58

Dalal al Yousfana is resting near the loader when a man in a green kameez, Haram, approaches him, and asks if he’s all right. Dalal replies that he was atttacked by the ekilibri, and suffered some claw and bite wounds. Haram asks for his injured limb, and Dalal gives him his arm, and Haram injects him with an m-dose [that cures 1 Damage point]. Haram tells Dalal that he works in the “below docks” and that the ekilibri is his servant. Dalal asks what happened to the ekilibri, and Haram says that Medicurg Falan will find out. He asks if any of Dalal’s friends was hurt, and the technician says that Palan may have been injured. Dalal points out Palan Mumrabh and Ziva dariBoukhari to him, but Haram says it will have to wait – several Coriolis Guards are approaching them.

Ziva is looking over and checking on Palan. His seeming allergy to the powder (flour) from the loader seems to be abating, but he’s somewhat teary-eyed and rather down on himself. He tells Ziva that he’s recovering, and asks her what happened with the loader. She tells him what happened, and Palan is surprised that Dalal stopped the loader. They are about to continue talking as Ziva helps Palan to his feet, when they are approached by Coriolis Guards, and the two are questioned about what’s happened in the incident. Palan is unable to shed any light on the matter, other than seeing the grav loader coming towards them, due to his incapacitation from the flour. Ziva tells her side of the story, and what she saw, and about the state of the ekilibri as well as the danger the loader represented, and how Dalal risked his life for all of them. The Guard are satisfied, but still suspicious about the events.

The Coriolis Guards who question Dalal recognise him from their questioning of the player characters earlier, and are moderately suspicious. They ask Dalal what happened, and he tells them about the rogue loader, how the creature attacked but that there was something wrong with it, and then describes what it did – the maniacal chittering etc. – for the Coriolis Guard lieutenant. The lieutenant says that if Dalal injured the ekilibri, then he could be charged under the Semi-Intelligences Act of CC 32. They discuss this some more, and Haram [Merifal] says if his ekilibri can’t work, then he will demand compensation of Dalal, much to the latter’s horror. The Coriolis Guard bar Dalal from leaving the station, and he agrees to the limitation, wondering if Ziva will stay on station to take him away when his barring is lifted.

After the Coriolis Guard have departed, Ziva and Palan have a chat. Ziva receives a notification on her tabula that Dalal is barred by the Coriolis Guard and the Coriolis authorities from departing the station. (A notice is also delivered to Ahlima’s Hope and to Dalal’s own device.) Ziva is displeased about this, as it means that the Ahlima’s Hope will have to remain on station longer than planned, and that will cut into profits and her own agenda.

It takes roughly half-an-hour for the loader to be taken away and for the area to be cleaned. During that time several people (a mother and daughter, several others who were in the area) come up to Dalal and thank him for what he did [he gets +1 to Reputation]. In addition to the area being cleaned, all the evidence is cleared away as well. Ziva talks to Dalal, trying to learn what happened in the loader cab, but to no avail, and says that it’s a good thing he did what he did. She asks why he’s been barred, and he tells her of the Semi-Intelligences Act possible violation. Dalal says he didn’t think the ekilibri had been hurt, and Ziva questions that in terms of its possible outrageous behaviour. Dalal says he wants to go check on the ekilibri’s condition, and that he’s going to see Medicurg Falan, but Ziva points out that it makes more sense to go and see the ekilibri’s owner, Haram, so ask to return the concern that Haram had for him earlier on. He agrees to this.

As the characters talk, they are approached by Bulletin News reporter Delila Delion, who starts to question Dalal, the whole thing being recorded on the news’ recording drone. He tries to mislead her somewhat, but still maintains the story that he’s told others to this point. She can tell he’s not telling her the whole story, and he says there’s a question of whether he tried to kill it and how badly it’s been hurt. Delion turns to Ziva, and asks when she knows of Dalal’s rebel connections on Algol that are part of the public record? She says that she does, and after deflecting the journalist’s questions and she starts talking to Dalal again, Ziva checks the ‘Net. She sees the public record confirms that Dalal is said to have connections to the Algol rebels, and was written by one Hamida Farouz. Checking up on the woman, she learns that Hamida works for the Colonial Agency as a “fact finder”, but also has connections to the Lyceum of Propaganda on Coriolis. Delion brings the subject back to the Algolan rebels, but Ziva dismisses Dalal’s potential connections to them.

Dalal asks Delila Delion if she knows what happened to the ekilibri. Delion says that Susha, the ekilibri, was suffering from a dose of Substance O, the new drug that comes from Algol, which is more powerful than opor, overdoses of which are said to cause death. Fortunately, Susha received the antidote for the drug on time, though it seemed the ekilibri’s metabolism may have caused a different reaction than that found normally in humans. She doesn’t know if Susha will recover, she’s not a medicurg, but there’s a good chance she believes. The characters also learn from her that the loader was an older model, and belongs to Farad’s Baked Confections which is located in the main section of the Market Plaza.

Sunday afternoon’s game session of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon campaign went pretty well, better than I expected. While the session had no physical combat, there was definitely some conflict, and the situation the player characters are in currently are messy and have some serious ramifications. That said, I was quite annoyed at SteveR‘s play, as to be honest, he wasn’t all that emotionally involved, hadn’t really considered the consequences of what he did to the ekilibri, and plays with a “nothing is going to kill me” attitude, as witnessed when he let the man give him the injection without even questioning it. I’m used to this with SteveR, but nevertheless I find it discouraging somewhat. That said, the session went pretty well, though I know that Tammy feels like she’s in over her head because it seems that SteveR will be depending on her to figure things out and protect him.

In any event, an entertaining game session of Coriolis – The Third Horizon, and I’m looking forward to the next session of the game.

It’s Easter Sunday. I’m feeling quite good and pretty chipper this morning (almost afternoon), and am ready for gaming.

I’m getting ready for this afternoon’s game session with SteveR and Tammy. I’m quite looking forward to continuing on with the Sunday Coriolis – The Third Horizon game campaign.

In the meantime, I need to go upstairs and make some lunch.

Have a good afternoon, folks. 🙂

The Sunday afternoon gaming group played yesterday, and continued on with their campaign of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG of Arabian Nights in space. You can read about the previous game session by following the link. This post is somewhat long, so I’ve put it behind a cut for those who don’t want to read about my roleplaying game campaigns.

Coriolis_RPG-regular_cover.jpg

CHARACTERS

Dalal al Yousfana (SteveR) – Scientist (Technician)
Ziva dariBoukhari (Tammy) – Negotiator (Peddler)
Ithara Kalarash (NPC1) – Pilot (Freighter Pilot)
Palan Mumrabh (NPC2) – Soldier (Mercenary)
Skot Habibar (NPC3) – Ship Worker (Dock Worker)

First Triad, Dancer Segment, Day 10, CC 58

Dalal al Yousfana, Ziva darBoukhari, and Palan Mumrabh go up to the food vendor, and purchase food for themselves, and Ziva also pays for Hariman darMansour and the street urchin. Palan also indulges in some of the local kohol, mixed with honey wine. The street urchin devours his pies and drink, and then seeing that he can’t really pickpocket the player characters, races off back into the hustle and bustle of the Spice Plaza.

As the player characters and Hariman head for the nearest eating area, Hariman steals another pie, but both Ziva and the vendor spot him. When the vendor tells him to replace the meat pie, Hariman defiantly takes a bite out of it, and the vendor forces one of the characters (it turns out to be Ziva) to pay for it. She does so, but is disgusted and disappointed in the Dabaranian. She leads him, and the others, to the tables where she plans to abandon Hariman. He asks her how things are at home, to which she gives him a generic response, and as she turns to leave again, he asks how she’s doing with her particular problem? When she asks what problem, he motions as if closing a book. She sits down at the table, the others joining them, but Hariman asks if she really wants to discuss this in public? He motions around, and when she looks closely, she can see all manner of various drones and probes in the area, some of them recording drones.

While they are sitting, Palan sees the fellow in the dark green and yellow djellaba watching them, and brings it to Dalal’s attention. Dalal tries to look at the fellow surreptitiously, but is spotted. The man smiles, and then motions shooting at him with a pistol, before quickly getting up and walking off into the crowd of the Spice Plaza. Dalal is intimidated as the man lets him clearly see an accelerator pistol.

Dalal is about to say something to Ziva when a shot rings out. Palan tackles Ziva to the ground, putting her under cover, while Hariman dives underneath a table, as all heck breaks loose in the area of the Spice Plaza where the shot rang out. Ziva shouts for Dalal, who is frozen in place, to get to cover, and he does so. Ziva looks around, and sees various people talking with the Coriolis Guard who are now on the scene, gesturing in the characters’ direction. She also sees a spark on the ground, though she can’t place it. Palan points to where the shooter seems to be, and she catches sight of a person in a green and yellow djellaba [it’s the same person that Dalal and Palan saw before] disappearing down one of the service hallways. Gesturing to the ground, Palan snatches up the remains of the slug. Ziva points to one of the security drones in the area, but Palan points to a bracelet he’s wearing with a green light on it, and then puts his finger to his lips in a gesture of quiet. Ziva looks around to see if Hariman is all right. He’s concealed underneath a table, but there’s something odd about him: his cloak is below the level of the table, scrunched down as if something is pushing down on it. Before she can say anything to him, the Coriolis Guard arrives on the scene to talk to them. Several Guards take the perimeter, while the Captain erects an auditory dampening field.

The Captain of the Coriolis Guard proceeds to make identifications of the player characters, and that they are part of the crew of the Ahlima’s Hope, except for Hariman. When he tries to con the Guard into some station accommodation, the Captain says they’re wise to his game, and it’s a no go. The Captain talks to Palan; he knows the former mercenary has the slug, and Palan hands it over reluctantly. The Captain says, upon looking at the ruined slug, that’s it’s from an accelerator pistol. That can’t be right, because the pistol doesn’t have the 100m range that the shot must have had, and the Captain posits some sort of Faction tech weapon. He changes the subject to the character of Dalal. He learns that Dalal was accused (supposedly mistakenly) of blowing up an ore processor on Algon (as part of the rebel cause). The Captain suggests that perhaps Dalal was the target of the attack, much to his surprise. The Captain tells Dalal that he shouldn’t leave the station, and that he should let them know where he’s staying on the station. With a brief nod, the Coriolis Guards leave the characters be.

With the auditory dampening field dropped, the sounds of the Spice Plaza, somewhat returning to normal, bursts in on the characters again. Bulletin journalist and Coriolis anchor Amina Shanatros (whom Ziva noticed watching them while being interrogated by the Guard earlier) and her assistant approach her, and wants to ask her a few questions. She asks why Ziva has come to Coriolis, and the Dabaran merchant evades at first, but then admits to being on Coriolis to trade. Amira knew she was on the station when the ship arrived in Coriolis space, and asks Ziva about family stuff. Ziva deflects the questions, and when asked why she and her crew were questioned by the Coriolis Guard says that it had to do with the shot fired in the area. The Bulletin reporter says the Guard have claimed it was a prank, but Ziva says that she’s unaware of this. Amira suggests that one of the characters, perhaps Ziva herself, was the target, but Ziva again evades this. Amira hands her a tag with her holo contact information, and tells Ziva to get in touch with her if she can think of anything else.

Once the journalist and her assistant are gone, Ziva looks around for Hariman but sees that he has obviously departed them. The characters instinctively check to see if they’ve been robbed, but only Ziva finds anything. There an slightly crumpled, first generation Dabaran tag in her left pocket. Tapping it into her tabula, she sees a simple message:

“Market Plaza, 3rd hour, Evening watch, Ahmed’s.”

She tells the others what she’s found, and casually looks around. She sees something that is considerably odd: A small old-fashioned grav loader is heading in the direction of the seating area, puffs of white powder or smoke (?) coming out of it every so often. As it draws closer, the characters see a lemur-like figure, wearing maintenance clothes, at the loader’s controls. There’s something odd about the creature, an ekilibri, but she’s not sure what. Palan begins to sneeze [spent a Darkness Point], and Ziva wonders if it’s allergies. The mercenary starts to run towards the loader, but trips while sneezing [spent 2 DPs], and falls into the path of the loader while still sneezing [spent 1 DP], and it incapacitates him temporarily. Seeing what’s happening, Ziva races up to him and heroically attempts to and succeeds at dragging the heavy Palan out of the way [she uses 2 DP], while Dalal runs up to the loader, and manages to grab onto two rungs as it passes. Ziva looks around, and sees that various people are running after the loader, and gradually catching up.

Dalal manages to swing himself into the loader cab [he uses 1 DP], and quickly stops the loader; it settles to the ground. However, he finds himself face-to-claws with the ekilibri – a glassy-eyed, seemingly on drugs ekilibri. It attacks Dalal, and he defends himself. Outside, Ziva can hear cursing, swearing, chittering, and some screams from the loader cab, and several loud thumps (as Dalal tries to swing the creature into the cab wall, and prevent it from clawing out his throat [he suffers 3 damage]). The other people arrive on the scene, two with armoured gloves, and they drag the ekilibri out of the cab, and then another knocks it senseless with a [shock] baton. Ziva looks around; if this was deliberate, then who won the bet?

Sunday afternoon’s game session of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG campaign was a lot of fun, and while I was still somewhat ill and didn’t expect to do all well with the game, it was more coherent and full of various types of conflict. The players had a good time with the session, and Tammy told me that she liked that “things happened”. You may have noticed that the fight in the loader cab between SteveR’s Dalal and the ekilibri isn’t detailed here (other than what Tammy’s Ziva heard going on inside); there was no point in writing it out in detail – it was a fight between a 1m lemur-like creature and SteveR’s character, for Goddess’s sake! But he did get hurt somewhat during the “fight”. I was pleased that I was able to do a coherent session with bits of sub-plots dropping in here and there, so there’s potential here for the future, to be sure.

Overall, it was an enjoyable session of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon game, and I’m looking forward to next week’s game play as well.

Once again, gaming for this afternoon is not going to happen.

I am still pretty ill, with whatever bug this is that I’ve not been able to shake. While I’m somewhat functional, I just don’t have the energy to run a game this afternoon. Not to mention that talking makes the coughing all that much worse.

So due to my illness we will not be gaming this afternoon. I was looking forward to running Coriolis – The Third Horizon this afternoon, but that just can’t *cough, cough, cough* happen today.

I’m going to sit on the couch upstairs, and relax and rest. Maybe get a little sleep. *cough, cough*

Hopefully, I’ll be able to run the game next Sunday afternoon. ::fingers crossed::

Sad to report that gaming for today is off.

Tammy has come down with a very bad head cold, and there is freezing rain in the forecast for this afternoon, so we will not be gaming. I was looking forward to getting the Coriolis – The Third Horizon Sunday campaign moving into full gear, but alas such will not happen this weekend.

Hopefully, everyone will be able to play next weekend.

This afternoon’s game session with the Sunday gaming group is off.

Tammy is having to work – well, she’s doing a roll-out and is on call for her job, so we’ve decided not to play this afternoon. So I will not be running a game session of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon campaign this afternoon.

That said, this will give me time this afternoon to do some work on creating the player characters for one of the two Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG sessions I’ll be running at CanGames in exactly two months.

The Sunday afternoon gaming group played yesterday, and continued on with their campaign of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG of Arabian Nights in space. You can read about the previous game session by following the link. This post is somewhat long, so I’ve put it behind a cut for those who don’t want to read about my roleplaying game campaigns.

Coriolis_RPG-regular_cover.jpg

CHARACTERS

Dalal al Yousfana (SteveR) – Scientist (Technician)
Ziva dariBoukhari (Tammy) – Negotiator (Peddler)
Ithara Kalarash (NPC1) – Pilot (Freighter Pilot)
Palan Mumrabh (NPC2) – Soldier (Mercenary)
Skot Habibar (NPC3) – Ship Worker (Dock Worker)

First Session
First Triad, Dancer Segment, Day 10, CC 58

The players begin with an introduction to the universe of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon roleplaying game, learn some of the basic mechanics of the game, and proceed through the Third Horizon universe Glossary. After that, they partook in several samples of combat that taught each of them the basic mechanics of the science fantasy “Arabian Nights in space” game. While the combat system for the game isn’t deadly like some, death can be a mere critical injury away.

Second Session
First Triad, Dancer Segment, Day 10, CC 58

The place: The Third Horizon. Coriolis station, in orbit of Kua. Approaching the station. The time: The first Triad, the Dancer Segment, Day 10 of Coriolis Cycle (CC) 58. The universe of the Third Horizon is full of adventure, intrigue, and even the mundane life for those who seek it – but for those who don’t, secrets may be revealed, the Darkness Between the Stars may be faced head-on…

The light freighter Ahlima’s Hope is approaching Coriolis station as it prepares to dock at the Neoptra spaceport. Dalal al Yousfana is working in engineering keep an eye on the various systems. Captain Ziva dariBoukhari is on the bridge, eyeing the work of Ithara Kalarash as she brings the ship in to port. Skot Habibar is in the cargo hold, doing some work there. No one has seen Palan Mumrabh since they started in towards Coriolis station. Ithara brings the ship into the spaceport and to dock 4-B without a scratch, and after a conversation with Dalal starts to power down the ship. Ziva can see that various station personnel are moving towards the Ahlima’s Hope outside. Ziva asks the ship’s AI, Savitra, where Palan is. The ship informs her that the gunner is located in the arboretum.

As the player characters go through docking procedures and post-flight checks, several of the crew inform Ziva there are some problems with shipboard systems. Skot tells her there are some problems with the cargo storage devices, and these need repairs; he estimates costs with labour to be around 15,000 Birr. Dalal informs her that the port rear landing strut has buckled, and will need to be replaced; a new one will run around 5,000 Birr. Palan, who has arrived on the bridge at the ship AI’s request, suggests that they might find a good deal for the strut in the Ozone Plaza on the station, or perhaps the Cellar. Skot says they really don’t want to deal with the “merchants” in The Cellar on Coriolis; it’s the sort of place where you bring a carbine with you, and an escort for protection. Ziva nixes the idea of getting the part in the Cellar, and says that they also have to take repair time and the cost of a repair crew into account. To make matters worse, Ithara tells her that the onboard sensors indicate that fuel tank B-2 is cracked. Ithara says this explains why fuel expenditure on the run from the portal to the station was 28% above expected expenditures. She estimates they can patch the fuel tank for around 6,000 Birr, but a new one would likely run 13k Birr (with labour). When Ziva asks what she recommends, Ithara says that a new tank would be better than just fixing the old one. The Ahlima’s Hope is getting old. Ziva totals up the repairs and the docking fees, and she’s not pleased with the numbers that come up. Skot asks if she’s going to send him to negotiate deals for the parts and labour they need, and Ziva says that she is, but he’s got to take Dalal with him, as he’s the ship’s engineer. Skot doesn’t look happy about this, but agrees to do so and arrangements are made.

The player characters [and the NPCs] prepare to depart the ship, Skot and Ithara staying on board to take care of a few things. Emerging from the Ahlima’s Hope, they are greeted by a wall of noise (from ships, work crews, and unloading, among other things) and the smells of the spaceport – ranging from fuel, to the sharp tang of metal, to the smell of unwashed personnel. They are met at the ship’s port by a customs officer, and three of the Coriolis Guard, armed with stun batons and Vulcan pistols (and one of them is armed with an accelerator rifle). The customs official introduces himself as Nehali Absolon, and welcomes them to Coriolis station. After checking out Ziva, Dalal, and Palan, he says he’s impressed that their pilot was able to land the ship with the damaged landing strut. When he learns that the pilot is Ithara Kalarash, he’s impressed, saying she has a “good reputation”. [She gains 1 Reputation point.] He also informs the captain that one of their crew, Skot Habibar, will be arrested on sight; he has a criminal record, with several warrants out against him. The captain and her personnel exchange glances, and say that they understand. Absolon leaves the three Coriolis Guard at the area of the ship, to emphasize the point, and then the characters proceed through the three security check zones.

After going through security and then being welcomed to Coriolis again, Ziva, Dalal, and Palan emerge into the heady smelling, loud and cacophonous Spice Market. As they get their bearings, a voice calls out to them, and the three turn to face a seeming beggar wearing an an ancient somewhat smelly set of clothes. He calls out, asking if it’s really Ziva, and she is shocked to recognise Hariman darMansour. He was part of one of the great families of Dabaran, that fell out of favour over some weapons deals. She remembers him giving her fig and date sweets, and how he wiped her face and mouth when she was a child. Hariman’s mouth waters at the smell of some sort of meat or veggie pies coming from a nearby seller, and he begs her to take her for a bite of food. As they move towards the food vendor, Ziva feels a tug on her caftan, and suspecting foul play at hand, looks down to see a small street urchin tugging on her caftan. He begs her for alms, but she doesn’t have any birr at hand. She offers instead to get him some pie(s) at the vendor, and he’s delighted at this prospect and moves off with them and Hariman.

Dalal notices someone watching them, leaning on one of the pillars in the Spice Plaza. He is a dark haired man wearing a dark green and yellow djellaba, with a weapon of some kind [mercurium sword] concealed by an overvest at his waist. He has a tattoo on his right cheek, but Dalal doesn’t recognise the symbol. He points the man out to Palan, who doesn’t recognise it either, but says that the man’s got a mercurium sword at his waist. When the man sees that they’re watching him, he moves off into the crowd.

Sunday afternoon’s game session of the Coriolis – The Third Horizon campaign was a lot of fun, and I had a good time running this. (I’ve included here the notes for the 1st game session as well, from the week(s) before, just for completeness sake.) The players seemed to enjoy themselves, though things went a bit off the rails as Tammy was on call for work and had a bit of a crisis at one point, so we only played for about 3 to 3-1/2 hours. I was glad to actually start the campaign, and gave the two players a bit of the feel and flavour for the game during the course of play, so that was enjoyable as well.

I’m quite looking forward to running the next session of the Sunday Coriolis – The Third Horizon campaign, and can’t wait! 🙂

I spent a relatively enjoyable, though somewhat disappointing, game session with the Sunday gaming group yesterday.

The two players, Tammy and SteveR, are currently working on getting ready to start their Coriolis – The Third Horizon RPG campaign, but still had some stuff to finish up on their characters. You can read about the previous session

Coriolis_RPG-regular_cover.jpg

SteveR and Tammy arrived at my place around 1:05 pm, and after we relaxed and chatted for about 10 minutes, I announced that it was time to start the game session. I had actually thought we would get around to actually playing the game, but such was not to be the case.

After going over the work they had done on character creation again, and making sure that all their equipment was recorded properly, Tammy and SteveR decided to ask some questions, and they also wanted an overview (in some detail) about the universe of the Third Horizon, and the culture(s) that are found there. Once I started going through the information they wanted, they had questions about various aspects of the material, Tammy in particular (but that’s a good thing).

Suffice to say, by the time 5:00 pm rolled around, I was a bit hoarse, but all of their questions and interests in certain elements of the cultures found in the Third Horizon were answered.

Overall, I was a little let down by the Sunday session of Coriolis – The Third Horizon, as I had hoped to actually start the game campaign itself, and ended up going through a third session of what felt like character creation. In any event, I really hope that I get to start the Sunday campaign next weekend.

Another Sunday. Crazy Ottawa weather. ‘Nuff said on that subject.

Getting ready for this afternoon’s gaming session with SteveR and Tammy. They’ll hopefully be starting play this afternoon of their Coriolis – The Third Horizon game campaign today. Just a couple of things that still have to be done, so we’ll see what happens in this regard.

In the meantime, better head upstairs and eat some lunch.

Have a good afternoon, folks. 🙂
