The crew runs from the law while the captain finds a hidden talent. We once again offend gay people everywhere with Lord Byron.

No, Byron is not gay. He finds the label too restrictive!

Possibly the best quote of the session:
"We were the last ones to the party of our own death!"


"Note to self: I don't think the resurrection plan will work."
"Must meet a level 20 cleric - wait, what? we're mixing genres now."
"At least the diamonds will be easier to find, in space."


"He was a machine gun expert - could put a round thru a flea's ass at 500 yards."


(Who's the girl? Is that Becky again?)
Chick: "Are you learning to read right now?"
"Oh, ouch! Caaaan you feeeel the loooove toniiiite?"
"Once again: my sister!"
"She's gonna become an internet phenomenon - nerd fanmail pouring in!"
Chick: "To me?"
"It's a lady! Actually at a gaming table! *Nasal nerdy whine* Oh wow, eet's a goil atta gamin' table!"
Chick: "THAT'll scare 'em off."
"I think Eric could probably scare off all the nerd boys."
"THEY WERE FOLLOWING US WHEN WE GOT HERE - HAHAHAHA!" *Evil, booming laughter*
"Oh, gawd!"


"He's giving me the full pirate experience."
"It's your turn in the barrel, boy!"


"I wanna go strip the sensors off the Honeybadger, install 'em in our ship, like a car stereo."


"Okay, you find an interstellar truck stop."
"The Greasy Space Spoon."


"Send Byron out to go meet the customs guy."
"Wearing his bulge-enhancing spacesuit."


"They didn't think you were gonna attack the customs inspector."
"Hey, I know that guy's ID card says 'bikini inspector', alright?"
"But he's also carrying what's basically a sawn-off shotgun."


"I definitely don't remember committing treason and espionage."
"Byyyrooon? Anything you forgot to tell us about?"


"Typing in a new course: the sun?!"
"It's the name of the ship, honest!"


"Master plan goes POOF!"


It's not easy being a mail man in Traveller:
"There were dogs chasing me."
"Not everyday dogs, SPACE DOGS!
"With cyber legs that chase the mail man, even if the dog's dead."


"Haven't you ever watched sci-fi horror movies before? The gay guy NEVER dies."
"What if he's a black gay guy?"


(They're talking about gravity wells and spaceship fuel supplies, I swear.)
"...The harder it will be to dip it in and get back out."
"That's what SHE said!"


"I'm acing these sensor rolls! I'm playing Guitar Hero AND checking the sensors at the same time."
"Thank gawd, 'cause we're struggling over here!"

yup, that would have been my sister Becky. More of her to come in later games, such as OotAK's attempt at Necessary Evil.

Ah, nice! Necessary Evil sounded great when the Whartson Hall gamers gave it a whirl. Did you get a lot of sessions recorded, or did the game implode prematurely in a thundercloud of treachery and evil backstabbery?

By the way, is Becky married to one of the other gamers, then? There was an episode where she complains the guy's habit of leaving the DVD player on all night (the Social Network movie, I think it was), and another player called him a "terrible husband". Of course, I may have misheard him - maybe he just implied that he would be a terrible husband. :)

Yup, Eric is her husband in all his pirate/marine cyber soldier self. The Necessary Evil campaign is still ongoing right now. We got Savage Worlds: Monster Hunter and some one shots to put up before that gets into the queue.

Ah, right. That old chestnut - how many sessions did you end up recording, all in all?

We finished 3 'episodes' and took about 2 sessions per episode I think. So a rough estimate of 6. Patron uploads for Traveller are at 18 of 22 though, so getting close. Should have those all uploaded by the end of the week.
