In the interim between missions, it's my hope to get 3 TW features installed into the Marauder PA:

1) Chameleon
2) Impervious to Fire (??) (to get rid of his heat signature?) // or maybe Impervious to Cold for same (??)
3) Globe of Silence

I've been asked to do a review & retooling of the Spooks much like I've been forced by circumstance to do for the PFRPG game & the Roughnecks.

So to start things off, I'd like to ask you all to review your own character sheets, gear, etc. and note anything that needs to be corrected or investigated to save me some time & you some headache.

Cheers.

Edit: I've been told you're also in town at the same time as the Roughnecks and are without a GM.

Care for a crossover or joint mission?

So some good news & some bad news about the GM notes:

Bad news: there are none after November 2016 (and those are damned thin)
Good news: that's a lot less for me to clean up

Just wondering a few things:

1. The body armor, hover sedan and robot I purchased don't seem to be listed anywhere. (all by-the-book afaik) http://www.explorersunlimited.com/eu/viewtopic.php?f=408&t=16434

2. Are the ghosts that were helping to teach Whisper gunslinging still around? I wasn't sure, so I have been avoiding using them, but it was kind of a neat idea to me; I'd actually love it if they stuck around permanently.

3. What actually happened to Snafu? I think last time I heard, he was having some medical problems? Is he okay?

He hasn't been around lately, but he did pop up once after his initial resignation and let us know that he was ok, but IIRC he said that he wouldn't be back any time soon. So, I wouldn't expect to see him around these parts, but I wouldn't worry either.

3. DL addressed

1. Links like that are very helpful! I'll check it out.
2. Not a chance. NPCs kept to a minimum = player character centric game. (Hoping that's actually relevant criticism)

Don't forget Mercedes!

So, the base for our ship is going to be a combination of

    Splugorth Slaver Raider [South America Pg 152-154]
    "This is a fast amphibious landing ship"
    Using Hydrofoil System: 100 mph (160 km)
    Using Hovercraft System (only over calm waters): 400 mph
    (640 km)
    On Dry Land: 40 mph (64 km)
    Statistical Data:
    Height: 55 feet (16.8 m)
    Width: 65 feet (19.8 m)
    Length: 200 feet (6 1 .0 m)
    Weight: 5 ,000 tons (4.5 million kg)
    Cargo: Can carry up to 800 slaves and 500 tons (450,000 kg) of
    loot.

and ...

    XM-250 Hover Station [Triax Pg 125-126]
    Height: 25 feet (7.6 m) tall.
    Width/Wingspan: 26 feet (7.9 m)
    Length: 130 feet (39.6 m)
    Weight: 129 tons fully loaded

In theory the hover system can handle 5500 Tons of weight at 40 mph ... if we're only going to be around 200 Tons unloaded maybe 300 tons with cargo (??) ... that's 18.3333 the weight capacity ... I am hoping we can do a good 300 mph, maybe altitude of 2400 ft.

Given the size the prior ship the engines previously lifted, we probably can use 1/4 or 1/3 of the parts and keep the others for future repairs.
