I'm keeping the main game title, but moving the old threads to Previous Travels. The individual character sheets are in Previous Travels/Previous Crew Sheets.

I'll incorporate the remaining crew sheets into a Roster thread. New players please submit characters to me for review. We're looking for characters with at least a minimal ship board skill as well as off board skills.

I'll track what ship positions are being filled as I get new characters.

Bossman: {Pending the return of Leon Armaud}
Pilot: {Pending the return of Deacon Sharpe}
Mechanic: John Chen
Purser:
Medic: Deng Shihao
Guard: Chris Bishop

Maybe Vic can be the purser? He's level headed and can be back up pilot allowing Deacon to go on all the off ship fun.

I always think the purser is not that important. One reason I had Vanessa in there. If no one volunteers, we can use Vic as suggested.

I'm waiting on character from koeran's boss character, but expect to start a new game thread this weekend. Everyone read the posting requirements in the Players/Advancement thread. Let me know here if you are ready to jump in.

As a starting bonus, I've given 2 AP to all currently active players.

So there.

Just confirming, we're intending to land on Persephone, but we're currently drifting near/in an Asteroid Belt?

I don't feel any decision has been made as to next destination. They've been on Persephone so many times already...

 ;D

and yes, hiding as it were in a belt.  somewhere...

Lol! Please, please NOT Persephone! Anywhere else is good, hell Higgins' Moon is a more attractive option to me at this point. Let's face it, landing on Persephone for us is somewhere akin to forcing two magnets with the same polarity together and/or pulling teeth.

I just finished reading Episode 4.  So now I'm a little more up to speed with what everyone else is talking about.   Flashbangs and Marshals and all that...

I actually really like the idea of there being more backstory to lend us context to our current situation.  I'm just unsure of the details.

Did we want to use EP 4 ver batum, or run with something using similar details?  Or am I the only one who likes the idea and I should just shut up?
