A Friends Campaign

Postby JMISBEST » Tue Mar 05, 2019 11:57 pm

I've been given permission from A Friend to post info on her Solo Traveller Campaign

But she insists I write it as she E-Mails it, so I have to put she or her GM rather then me or he

So here's her Character generation stuff and it starts on Drinax, uses Drinax Character Creation Rules and several adventures will be Regular Versions of Pirates of Drinax adventures

Term 1

Stat wise I rolled 8-1 or 7 for both Str and End, 2 2’s or 4 that I change to 2 5’s or 10 for Dex, 9+0 or 9 for Int, Edu 10+1 or 11 and Social Scale 12+1 or 13

I choose not to take A Career Package but will take A Background Package

So I choose to be from A Developed World

And

That nets me +1 Edu, Cr 10,000, A TL 10 Portable Computer and The Skills Admin /1 or +3, Advocate /0 or +2, Art /0 or +2, Diplomat /0 or +2, Drive -wheeled /1 or +2, Flyer /0 or +1, Profession -Art Dealer /1 or +3, Science -Biology /1 or +2 and Streetwise /0 or +1

Also 1

The GM lets me make 1D66 Rolls, choose the career they apply to, then choose the job within that career they apply to then determine the outcome as normal and can do this up to 1 time per year of my pre-campaign life or 8 times. But sadly I make no benefit rolls unless A Event allows it, shame, right guys

And

This is all to represent stuff that happened whilst I was, as The GM ruled, travelling far and wide learning, seeing, doing and experiencing stuff to make me a great man. But just like I said earlier sadly I make no benefit rolls unless A Event allows it, shame, right guys

The 4 Noble 1’s

Using the rules from Dilettante

A 63 on The Connoisseur Table

That means double the value of 1 of my portfolio items

A 23 on The Connoisseur Table

That means I get A Stipend worth Cr 5,000,000 that nets me Cr 37,500 per month
A 64 on The Humanitarian Table

That means I am offered A Ethics prize for my Work which nets me Cr 100,000, A Ship Share worth Cr 1,000,000 and guaranteed survival this term, that’s ignored
And

A 12 on The Adventurer Table

That means I’m cut off from my finances for a brief time and choose to get Stealth /1 or +2

The 4 Crime 1s

Using the rules from Scoundrel

A 51 on The Pirate Table

That means I hear rumors of a major mining operation, I investigate it, I roll 2 5’s, get 3 benefit rolls and with 2 4’s and A 1 or 11% ownership in A Pirate Ship or 5% paid off of The Harrier, which I take as 5% paid off of The Harrier

A 22 on The Smuggler Table

That means my cargo escapes. So I gain A Pet that I choose as A Talking very rare and very exotic Parrot

A 63 on The Wanderer Table

That means that I wander into the middle of a revolution and get Medic /1 or +3

Another 63, this time on The Smuggler Table

That means that my Ships Captain has died, which means I get 1D3 or 2 Ship Shares, but I also get my former Ships 1st Mate as A Rival, Which also means 7% paid off of The Harrier

Also 2

I’ve now changed my mind and, as a result, am taking A Career Package, but the others are using regular means. As well as which The 3D6 roll for years in that careers 2 1’s and A 5, so I’m only 18 +4 +7 or 29

I choose to go for A Noble, earns The Title of Most Senior Knight in Galactic History with A Very High Social Scale of 13 as well as The Title of Count of Drinax, which also has/comes with/gives A Social Scale of 13

He also nets +1 Edu and get Cr 100,000 as well as 3 Contacts that The GM makes SS 2D3+7 that end up as 1 SS 12 Noble, 1 SS 10 Administrator and 1 SS 10 Military Contact

As well as that my new or improved Skills are Admin /1 or +3, Advocate /1 or +3, Art –Dancing /0 or +1 and Sculpting /0 or +2, Broker /0 or +2, Carouse /1 or +3, Deception /0 or +1, Diplomat /2 or +4, Gambler /0 or +2, Leadership /2 or +4 and Persuade /1 or +3

As well as that for The 3 Skills from The GM’s Skills Table/package I take Gun Combat -Energy Rifles /1 or +2 and Melee -Blade /1 or +1 and Tactics /1 or +3

Actually The GM let me take 2D2 or 4 Levels of Skills from her table and 1D3 or 2 equivalents of A Connection, which explains my 4 /1 skills of Gun Combat -Energy Rifles /1 or +2, Melee -Blade /1 or +1, Vacc Suit /1 or +2 and Tactics /1 or +3 as well as why and how I raised Broker from /0 or +2 to /2 or +4

And

Using the newly added rules for increasing 3 Skills by a total of +5 points I choose to raise Diplomat /4 or +6, Leadership /4 or +6 and Gambler /1 or +3

Also 3

All in all value and similar wise my character starts with Cr 110,000 in cash as well as a portable computer

I also use The GM’s portfolio rules and net 1 Cr 25,000,000x2 or Cr 50,000,000 Huntng Estate that nets me Cr 125,000x2 or Cr 250,000 a month, 1 Cr 25,000,000 set of shares that nets me Cr 187,500 per month and 1 Cr 10,000,000 Business that makes champagne that nets me Cr 75,000 a month and A Stipend worth Cr 5,000,000 that nets
me Cr 37,500 per month

All in all and all things considered that gives my character a portfolio worth a total of Cr 60,000,000 that nets me a total of Cr 387,500 per month
The GM also let me make up to 4 Portfolio rolls, but all of them, even the bad 1’s counted. But luckily those 4 rolls where A 12 +A 9, A 11 +A 5, A 10 +A 3 and A 10 +A 3

But sacrificing using almost all of The 1 Cr 25,000,000 and 1 Cr 67,500,000 boosts or +Cr 92,500,000 to The Hunting Estate from The 12+9 and 11+5 to pay off Cr 48,500,000 of The Harriers mortgage. So all in all very good indeed, right guys, or at least I think so, again right guys

As well as which I then use the other Cr 44,000,000 was used to buy A Cr 22,000,000 Industrial Complex that nets me Cr 100,000 a month and A Cr 22,000,000 Business that nets me Cr 165,000 per month. So all in all very good indeed, right guys, or at least I think so, again right guys

That leaves Cr 4,500,000 +Cr 10,000, then 2 lots of Cr 10,000 gives me a initial Cr 4,710,000. So all in all my solo character is going to start out, now has started out, as a multi-millionaire. So all in all very good indeed, right guys, or at least I think so, again right guys

All in all that raised my portfolio to 1 of 1 Cr 50,000,000 Hunting Estate that nets me Cr 250,000 a month, 1 Cr 37,500,000 set of shares that nets me Cr 281,250 per month, 1 Cr 22,000,000 Industrial Complex that nets me Cr 100,000 a month, A Cr 22,000,000 Business that nets me Cr 165,000 per month, 1 Cr 19,500,000 Business that makes champagne that nets me Cr 146,250 month and 1 Cr 7,500,000 Stipend that nets me Cr 56,250 per month

All in all and all things considered that gives my character a portfolio worth a total of Cr 180,500,000 that nets me a total of Cr 998,500 per month before for costs, wages and taxes and Cr 199,700 taxes and wages and Cr 661,050 per month after. So all in all very good indeed, right guys, or at least I think so, again right guys

So all in all my solo character is going to start out, now has started out, as a multi-millionaire. So all in all very good indeed, right guys, or at least I think so, again right guys

Due to A Event Roll on The GM Made Events Table I start with a fully repaired Harrier with A 7 Ton Medical Bay, The 2nd triple turret has 2 Sandcaster and A Pulse Laser and 4 tons of Sandcaster Barrels

As well as that my 12 crew share 6 Double-Staterooms, I have The 7th and swap the 8th and 8 Low Berths for +6 Tons of Cargo Space, which gives 29.75 tons -11 Tons +6 Tons or 24.75 Tons of Cargo Space

But its not all good and that’s mainly cos that takes the mortgage I’ve got to pay off to Cr 343,552,500 +Cr 3,800,000 or Cr 347,352,500

The GM also lets me loot and keep 3 crates of 12 3 pint bottles of sherry, 3 Snub Pistols, 3 Flak Jackets, 3 TL 11 Vacc Suits, 1 Cutlass, 1 TL 12 Vacc Suit, 1 Sindallian Officers Cutlass, 1 Sindallian Officers Revolver with 5 spare clips of each type, 1 Breaching Gun, 1 Boarding Gun and 1 crate of 380 boxes of 200 cigarettes from its supplies

I also hire 12 Crew made up of 4 Marines, 2 Gunners, 1 Medic, 1 back-up engineer, 1 back-up pilot, 1 engineering officer, 1 piloting officer and 1 1st officer that all have A +3 DM in their 5 key-skills and A +2 DM in their 3 none-key skills

That gives monthly costs of Cr 26,940 for The Harrier and Cr 9,200x12 or Cr 110,800 for my 12 Crew of 4 Marines, 2 Gunners, 1 Medic, 1 back-up engineer, 1 back-up pilot, 1 engineering officer, 1 piloting officer and 1 1st officer that all have A +3 DM in their 5 key-skills and A +2 DM in their 3 none-key skills

And

That gives total monthly costs of Cr 26,940 +Cr 110,800 or Cr 137,740 for the ship and Cr 148,950 for 20% taxes. But still leaves me with Cr 744,750 -Cr 286,690 or Cr 458,060 per month

More stuff will follow when theirs enough to make it worth while. Also what do think so far

1st update

The Campaign stuff

Month 1

Doing 2 trading ventures

The 1st

At the planet of origin

Events

2

1st

A roll of 24 on The Urban Encounter Table

A Street Market Stall tries to sell me something, I ignore it

2nd

A roll of 34 on The Rural Encounters Table

A Military Facility. I ignore it

Trading

As we’re on A High Population World I go for Medical Supplies

Theirs 25 Tons

I roll 3D6+6 for being on A High-Tech World and get 16. So I can buy them for -40% or Cr 120,000

So I buy 24 tons for Cr 3 million

Events In space

Leaving old planet

1

It is A 52 in High Traffic System or 72 for Automated Vessel

I spot it in time, get close to make sure its okay, it is and beat a hasty treat in-case its automated computer mistakes my for A Pirate

Arriving at destination

1

It is A 12 in High Traffic System or 32 for Space Junk –possible salvage

I roll A 7 then A 11 and get medical supplies that I sell for Cr 22,000

Selling

I roll 3D6+5 for being on A Rich World and get 20, so I sell them for 160% of their market value

That’s Cr 320,000x24 or Cr 8,000,000

That gives me Cr 5,022,000 profit. So I send Cr 4,497,200 off to the bank

2nd set of trades

Events

On planet

None

Trading

I’m on A High-Tech World and go for advanced weapons

I can buy up to 20 tons

I roll 3D6+6 and get A triple 6 for 18+6 or 24, so I buy them for 25% of their market value or Cr 37,500 per ton or Cr 750,000

Events in Space

Leaving old planet

1

It’s a 36 in Settled Space or 46 for X-Boat Courier

We exchange pleasantries then leave

Arriving at destination

1

A 11 in Settled Space or 21 for Pirate

We end up in a fight. But I blast them with Particle Beam hits that decimate them, the survivors surrender, I hand them over to the authorities along with their Ship and get rich

I net Cr 5D6+2x100,000 or Cr 2.4 Million Bounty for Captain, Cr 2D6+1x80,000 or Cr 880,000 for the ship, Cr 4D6x1,000 or Cr 361,000 for The 19 Crew and 2D6x10% halved salvage value or 50% salvage value of Cr 228,510,000 or Cr 114,255,000, which gives Cr 117,906,000

And

That goes straight towards the mortgage

Selling

I roll 3D6+4 for Rich World and get 2 4’s and A 2 +4 or 14

So I sell them for 115% of their value or Cr 172,500 per ton

That’s Cr 3,450,000 or Cr 2.7 million profit

That goes towards the mortgage

And

Combined with using all the money from my portfolio gives a payment towards the mortgage this month of Cr 125,724,250 and +Cr 566,800 to my funds

Also

The GM makes 1D2 portfolio rolls

They are A 11+4 and A 3+2

So The GM rules they cancel each other out

She also rules they have A 2-in-6 chance of adding +2D2x5% to the value of 1 portfolio item

I roll A 6 then 2 2’s

And

That adds +10% to my hunting estates value

Month 2

A Job or 2 from The 760 Patrons Book

The 1st

She/The GM rolls up A Spacelane Type Event

And

She/The GM then rolls up The Thigo Bedlam Event

So

The GM rolls A 6

We attack him as a known criminal

A lucky particle beam hit fries him

So we catch him

We then return him

I roll A 2D6+6 Diplomat roll and get A 16

And

The GM rules that as a reward the planet where he committed the massacre of over 1,000 dead and more then 4,200 injured pay off the rest of the loan
