GURPS Traveller: The Pirates of Drinax

Postby RogerBW » 3:00pm on 29 Jul 16

The Whartson Hall Gamers play the Mongoose Traveller campaign The Pirates of Drinax. With GURPS Traveller, because we felt like it.

Nick - GM
RogerBW - Sir Vorick of Mansel
Jomster - Grigori
Martin - Dr Tycho Kirin
Riddles - Tunnock T. Cake
BigJackBrass - "Coyote" Brown
Amelia - Chak'Tagra

Session 1: Introductions. The crew gets together for the first time, and we discover our mission.
Session 2: Space Accountants. This is Traveller, after all, and you don't go freebooting across the spacelanes without working the purchase and resale price modifiers.
Session 3: Save Your Love. We pillage an innocent merchant ship, and deploy our devastating terror weapon.
Session 4: Death Cult World. What could go wrong?
Session 5 - A Fishing Expedition. On to sunny Torpol, recreation world to the gentry (or Space Wigan).
Session 6 - A Small Misunderstanding. Running from the law, to a runner-up in the All-Imperium Most Boring Star System Competition three years running.
Session 7 - Sticky and Burny. Our heroes venture aboard a deserted space station. Deserted. Right.
Session 8 - More Yellowish-Brown. We take a short side trip to Borite, home of, well, Borite.
Session 9 - A Back Street, But Still Semi Upper Class, Cybernetics Parlour. We make it to the pirate world of Theev, and start our enquiries. Oddly, this involves a seedy space bar.
Session 10: You'll Never Get Past The Nando's. In spite of our Overconfidence and Impulsiveness, we actually make some progress with our mission.
Session 11 - The Fumbling Man in the Turny Chair. Coming back after a break, we suddenly seem to have got dangerously competent.
Session 12 - In Bed with Roger. We finally take on the dreaded Ferrik Redthane. Who will live? Who will die? Who will get the best footage for the newsreels?

(that's all for the moment)

Apologies for the sound quality at times. The batteries in my brain needed changing.

For those who haven't met Whartson Hall before, we don't edit (hence the name) and currently play over Google Hangouts.

I'm definitely enjoying running, although I never seem the get the balance right between freeform and railroad... I may not be very good at directing the action in that regard

"It's all gone a bit Canticle for Lebowitz down here.". Well played Marsh. I think that could go in a GURPS sidebar on tech levels.
