The District Episode Five?
« on: April 06, 2015, 08:54:29 AM »

Hey All,

It's been nearly a year since I was active here. Not that I stopped pbp over that interim. I just followed my then-current players to another site (tavern-keeper.com) and have been gaming there since (running one game involving both said players and playing in two others with them as a player).

But now all three of those games have slowed down, due - as usual - to RL issues on the part of the various players. The two games I play in haven't seen a new post (other than a literal "my PC is picking his nose" post by yours truly) in half a year, while the one I run is down to a just a couple of posts per week.

So I find myself with plenty of PbP GMing time on my hands. And I also find myself with an idea for a new Episode of The District (which will still use Savage World rules).

This time around, the player characters will (for whatever reasons suit their chosen backgrounds) be resident upon or passing through the gypsy space station ISS Ask Me No Questions. Prior to game start, the PCs will all have come across an ad on the station cortex seeking "freelancers experienced in exploration and/or security work" and posted by the megacorporation Hortalez Et Cie. Curiousity (if nothing else) will lead the PCs to inquire further, since Hortalez is a banking firm with an exceptional reputation for both extreme integrity and bottomless wealth.

An overview of The District (with content edited to reflect past experience, particularly regarding in-game use of Psionics) is available here: http://pbphouse.com/forum/index.php?topic=6198.0

Does this interest anyone?

Given the premise for the new episode - a fresh start, supported by an NPC Patron looking to hire a crew of freelancers - how do you see Samantha leaving Thor's Chariot LIC?

Was she bought out amiably by the other partners? Or was there some conflict?

And will Samantha be bringing C.A.T.I. along? While this would solve the need for a PC to possess the not-generally-exciting skills of Knowledge (Sensors) and Knowledge (Shields), there might be someone interested in those skills or in playing a support Robot like C.A.T.I. as their PC.

UPDATE: cdwjava has re-joined the game, bringing along both his PC and PC Henchman (C.A.T.I.). We're still looking for additional players.
