Adventures of Space Captain Eliot - Chapter 2

Not good…NOT good…so not good.

I crashed the ship.

I mean, it’s not totally my fault…but seriously, I was flying so they’re definitely going to blame me. And then I’m going to lose my job which is going to suck so hard! I mean come on, pirates? Like a bajillion pirates! And the Tequila Sally (which sounds like a hot Spanish chick) is slower than dirt! Here’s a crazy idea, captain: don’t fight pirates with dirt!

So yeah, not the best day in Captain Eliot’s career. We were on our way to a base when every pilot in the GALAXY decided to shoot at us. Bunch of dicks with eyepatches! But man, I was good. Real good! I mean pretty good. Obviously crashing the ship is less than super good, but I did my best…

Point is, they shot us up, I lost control, and now we’re on an escape pod going who-knows-where. It seems like everyone is looking at me like it’s my fault (which it totally isn’t…entirely). Do you think they’re going to eat me?! Some of these guys give me the heebs….

The Wolf Attacks - Chapter 2 (Sarris)

In hyperspace, heading for N’Ganti III. Found out that the stowaway guy is now a paying passenger and is in one of the first-class containers (lucky bastard). I took this down time to synthesize more <edited>, about 4 weeks’ worth. Before I could do any more testing and try to find a counter-agent to this damn stuff, the Sally’s red alert triggered. As the ship’s doctor, I am to report to the bridge during emergencies, it’s probably just a drill.

Some Vargr (ugh, nasty germs) asshole pirate told us to surrender our goods – fuck that! No-one needed immediate medical attention and I really didn’t want to lose out on our payday, so I took it upon myself to get that silly ship’s computer to help out – targeting, countermeasures, whatever, just do it! We managed to take out two of the bastard’s skirmishers, but his main ship finally got us. In the confusion, that asshole stowaway/passenger took our Sherpa – may he explosively decompress in an asteroid shower!

Some of us made it to an escape pod. In the panic, I had an almost uncontrollable urge to rush back to the med bay to grab the extra <edited>, but my flight instinct won. Now stranded on this friggin’ desert, I have a couple days of <edited> at best, and I am beginning to regret not going back for the extra stuff – and soon so will my companions.

Shrouded in the black - Chapter 1 (Sarris)

Finally got hired on a ship – can’t remember the name, something like Makarana Bully, doesn’t matter much. Feels good to be on the move – my nerves are shot. Met some of the other crew members – one of them, I think his name was Sponge, mentioned that I had a peculiar smell about me; must be the <edited>, interesting that it has an olfactory effect – I’ll have to investigate that. The others introduced themselves, but I was tripping pretty badly at that point.

Our first stop was Apalav where we delivered some <edited> and had to avoid some dipshits trying to steal from us. Damn that punk-ass kid can drive! Next stop was to invest in some cargo to get some credits flowing (and man do I need them.) Managed to get some heavy <edited> and more importantly, I scored some supplies to synthesize about 4 weeks’ worth of <edited>.

I don’t remember much after that, but now we are back in the black. I just saw some other passenger I don’t recognize; wonder where the hell he came from?

Adventures of Space Captain Eliot - Chapter 1

Wooosh!

I love this job. Best job ever! Okay maybe it would be better if they made me Head Pilot, or is it Master Pilot? Whatever the name is….they’d let me fly the ship more often. But that’s okay, working full time would be a DRAG!

So anyway, lots of stuff going on. Here’s my top 3 awesome things that happened today!

1) Saw boobs. It turns out ship captains hang out at strip clubs all the time, and if you’re super smart (and have a membership card that you might have borrowed…), you can get in! Everyone thought I was Captain Goober or whatever his name was, and it was suh-weet!

2) Got D-R-U-N-K. Yup, uncle Pete always said that stuff would put hair on my chest, so look out ladies! It felt like swimming in a cloud, or like being asleep and awake at the same time. Totally epic. I want to do it again!

3) Drove a car. A car! We were in an honest-to-goodness get-away chase with people shooting at us and everything. So cool! You shoulda seen me darting around curves, telling the badguys to eat my dust. And guess what! We got away scott free, made a whole pile of cash, and I didn’t even get one scratch on it. I CAN FLY ANYTHING! I CAN DRIVE ANYTHING! Maybe I should become a racecar driver…they get a ton of girls, and beer!

So pretty sweet day, if I do say so myself. Let’s see, we landed on Apalav (funny name!), accidentally stole some body parts (gross and cool at the same time), outran some pissed off black market dudes, and found Captain Goober’s wallet (dude needs a chain for that thing!), and visited his ship. He invited us to dinner at a strip club like a creeper, but we did that and he didn’t even show up. Some other dude found us and called me “kid”, so I already don’t like him. We got some cargo for a run, which seems sort of dangerous because they’re heavy weapons (allegedly!) and only super dangerous freakos use those, but Caine says the money is good so I’m good with that. Anyway, we finally took off when we found a stowaway. The Captain says he’s legit, so now we’re smuggling him too.

So in summary, BOOBS!

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
