Personally I'm thinking just evolved from ...

I want a opinion

I'm curious about something and want a opinion. Can you give 1?. Also bear in mind that I only want opinions on this and know it'll never happen If Pirates of Drinax was a computer game with 5 difficulty settings would it make sense for Ferrik Redthane to be better in every way on the hardest of the...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

We have moved on from "Ihatei!" to the sandbox. Our trusty group of corsairs has jumped to Asim where they met Cleon Hardy, Asimen ambassador, and Lady Telwax, the Drinaxi Star Guard officer and governor of the planet. Hardy clarified his role as the civilian leader of the system. The players spent...

Re: Pirates of Drinax - GMs thread

Alas, poor Grimsy. Jagad tried to avenge her and failed. To Baldo’s point, that scene made me very uncomfortable. Now, Grimsbold did secretly notify the Arshad and Komino that there were problems aboard the Treasure Ship, but still, an execution-style killing? Made me shudder a bit. Who's Grimsy?

Re: Getting rid of negative Quirks in spacecraft

Good thoughts but how do you suggest clearing up the 1 about it having a reputation so bad that in several systems it will be seized, possibly without warning and could even land The Pcs in trouble and/or in jail?. After all you'd have to go their to clear it up and that could be more hassle then it...

Re: How to not get spaced

Yes, to what EwanS said - a pirate ship captured can be returned to Imperial space. But, as you say, the scanner signature is one that is on record, so law enforcement may fire on it without warning if it comes in their range. It may take some time for the new records to be distributed across all s...
