Things are going a bit slow on my end for the next game session, so if anyone has something they want to run, let me know. This project is much more massive than I expected, but I want to get it right.
Nikki had major spinal surgery last Monday and we are back home, and doing very well. However, things in Shadowland are going much slower. I'm really trying hard to start breaking everything up into 1-1.5 hour blocks for easier management. There are times I just want to say 'Hell with it' and write the damned thing as a story! But, I really want to see how everyone does, so that when it IS written, it will be so much better!
If anyone has any questions about what I've already sent over, just PM me. I will be leaving my Facebook active because I get way too many messages there to just close the damned mess.
Until I hear from you again, take care!

Since I haven't heard otherwise, I'll assume we're ready for tomorrow at usual time.

Here is basic the intro, I'll repeat it for audio tomorrow:


{I’ll include more pics as needed on TS, or at least links to them.)
Barscil is still ‘out of town’ and needs a favor. He needs you to pick up a package from a ‘client’ and use the decryption module in the package to check the data. This should be a very simple run. The location is very secure and exclusive.


Barscil includes some information so you aren’t going in completely blind.
*
The Job: Pick up the package and return. No exchange, as the run IS the payment.
Barscil needs them to pick up three data sticks (Blueprints for Apollo Saturn V {http://history.nasa.gov/diagrams/apollo.html} & Soviet N-1 Rockets; 12 NASA Blueprints for Rockets; Russian Soyuz Rockets).
They are to check the files on a device he gives them. (See Data Reader Image- The data chips are Advanced SD Cards.)
The decryption module changes the old files to a new project that combines the old systems with upgraded tech for a new rocket based transorbital and clues (refueling specs) for a lunar base.)
They can see there is a second layer of encryption to the files, but cannot access it.

Barscil explains that the Client wants to play the part of a shadowrunner. She wants to be the ‘The Johnson’ working the Shadows.
He wants her business, so everything is set up as safely as possible with people he trusts. He encourages you to play up the part of being a badass, dangerous, mysterious shadow-running team.
(Roleplay some shit-talking about other adventures., and how you always have to be looking over your shoulder, and this place makes you nervous and isn’t ‘safe’ at all, etc.)

And since this is the “Bar Fight” game, you know something is going wrong at some point.
*
The Johnson: Emiya Johnson.
Age: 17 Ht: 5’3”; Wt:105 (very athletic); Hr: Black/ Short; Eyes: Grey/ Enhance; Augmentations: Various
Decker/ Rigger/ Savant

Emiya Johnson is a college Student attending Western Washington U, Seattle U, and U of Puget Sound. (Yes, classes at all 3.)
She is a savant in and low-grav astro-architectural engineering. Her bio can be easily found on the Matrix, along with awards for her genius.
Her family is VERY wealthy and influential ‘Back East’. Influential as in they are rumored to be the original Johnsons back before the world went insane and hiring murderers and thieves was just ‘business and politics’.
She is the middle child of five and has spent her entire life in study. She has managed to stay out of most social circles and the trouble they cause. She is very educated, but very inexperienced.
Vicar, her escort, is a well-dressed and groomed Ork. He is much more built than he looks. Despite the appearance of a socialite, he moves like a spec-op.
As one of her many projects, Emiya has designed something that Barscil has quite an interest in. In order to get them Barscil has set up the run for her. She has a great interest in the Shadows, but is nowhere ready for them despite her thoughts otherwise. Barscil wants her designs, but he also wants the connections she can bring to his endeavors.
The ‘Run’ is done with quite a bit of secrecy. Her family is more interested in her education and profitability, than getting her into the ‘family business’.

*

The Location:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6N0KfObmA8

The ship is upgraded from video clip as follows…

This is a luxury, secure, very private meeting place for the wealthiest of Seattle’s power players. Clothing is formal, but not black tie.
The location has several ‘unmarked’ luxury armored limousines parked around the dockside helipad.
To get to the location you ride out to the helipad where you are scanned and asked to remove all weaponry possible. You are scanned thoroughly before being allowed in helo.
Armored clothing is allowed, but not body armor. You also see more than one mage left behind.
Barcil’s driver will hold anything you have to leave behind. (They don’t expect you to arrive defenseless.)
More than one group of heavily armed and augmented individuals are waiting in and around their vehicles.
You ride out as a group to the ship. One helo is landing at dock as you take off, and one is taking off as you land on the yacht.
You are scanned again and compared to scan taken at dock and sent to ship.
The ship is equipped with advanced scanners at the main entrance (and much more at other access points). All body augmentation, weaponry, and armor is tagged along with Idents- cross-referenced information reveals actual idents.

Once inside, you are directed to your table where Ms. Johnson waits with her escort.

***
The Guest Mode is most appropriate, luxury sitting areas are set up on the main and both upper levels allowing privacy without resorting to closed rooms.
The entire place has low lighting in the sitting areas, and holographic lighting in main areas.
All staff is either awakened or augmented.
There are bouncers, waitresses, and Bar Tenders.
There are 4 Tenders, 2 on main level, and one on each upper behind a well-stocked bar, each with a waitress. The bouncers patrol all areas with one always at the entrance.

What's up team?

Just a quick heads up, I'm gonna be adding a new section to the forum for a group of writers I recently had the pleasure of working with. It's just so we can manage our collaborative work easier and a place to provide relevant articles to help improve writing. It'll be a bit like 'Public Plus' mode, in that access to our Sci-Fi, Fantasy and the like will still be limited, however if we wish to share some things, we can in this new section without displaying it to the public. I invite and welcome all of you to make use of this new section, however Lore has pretty much already got all of our needs covered with the current forum layout and so this is simply a means for me to 'cover our asses' so to speak, while also allowing a better method of collaboration over things like email and text with the author group.

My other aim with this section is to have a place where Author articles, such as I09 and Gizmondo(?), and videos that we can learn from, any time we see something that can help us improve as authors, we put in this section.

I still need to work out some kinks, and feedback is always welcome.

Have a good one, and hopefully we'll catch up on Sunday if not beforehand! =D

I've got a new project in mind. Start considering your favorite characters, ships, gear, and tech! This is going to be one of my Alt. Univ. so don't worry about storylines.
I want to showcase the Chaos Nova Universe for the American Public in this TALE FOR THE GODS!!!
Ahem... Anyway, I've got a bit more editing for my VERY rough draft (I made you nervous with those Caps again, didn't I?), and then I'll get it on here. Right now, it's 28 typed pages of pure text, and that's just basic outline.
This will be a Trouble centered story, full of smart assery, but I really want everyone to get their highlights to show how diverse and talented our group is. This is a 12 part story, so there is plenty of room for Everyone.
As this is AltVerse, I will want to work with Knux, and later Lore on planetary structure, as it will play a large part in this story. I have to have some of the elements, I just need to know which world I can fit them into.
Before I even attempt this, there is a certain style I'm going for. I want to get back to the beginning, but with what we have learned about the Verse. So, I ask that you allow my edits when we're done. This won't be a random 'Let's see where this goes story'. I need your help filling in the LIFE of our verse, but I HAVE the story.
I'll get with Knux after he catches this and forward the file for review. If you want to run with it, I'll need your assistance getting it posted properly for story editing by the group.
And for anyone who isn't part of the 'Just Us League' I'll be wanting input, and will have opportunities for you to fill in side characters and ideas as we go.
Thank you all. Until next time, Happy Holidays!

I've created a Troubled Core section and moved the relevant threads, you can now find them @ http://chaosnova.darkbb.com/c9-troubled-core-section
The wording of this section and it's description are placeholders for the time being, I wanted to create the section early and nip any potential 'stories and ideas scattered, lost, around the forum' problems we might have encountered. I'll also be tidying up other sections in the future so any feedback on suggestions is welcome.

All the best! =D

I made another thing (includes the above video): http://hereticlearning.blogspot.co.uk/2016/12/off-world-adventures-at-benfleet-base-3.html
I've also been adding the "recovery fund" link to all my recent videos. (On the downside, my audience is rather tiny.)

Hey Team,

In an effort to streamline the forum to make transfer and back-up easier I have begun the process of organising, moving, copying and deleting certain posts.
Stories from the Fantasy RPG section have been moved to the Troubled Core section as I believe they still have some good ideas we can work from.
Any posts that are rather outdated are being deleted, however I am transferring the contents to a document in Google. Other posts that are one post or so long, and offer little more than my ramblings are also being removed.
Stories and Creative ideas are not being adjusted. They will remain where they are. There are also a couple of posts that were originally 'bump threads' that people are now aware of, meaning I can move them to their relevant section.

As I said, this is all being done in an attempt to slim down the amount of content that needs backing up. I also believe that the Forum could do with a clean-up to make it easier to navigate. There's a lot of old material like the QAT choose your own adventure idea, or the card game that are obsolete or would serve me better on Google Drive, (I'd like to refine a few things before returning them to the forum too.)

If you've got any requests as to the movement or deletion of subjects, or suggestions, let me know and we'll put them into action.

All the best!

(Additional: A couple of things like Logo artwork and Seeker Advert are now in the discussions section as I feel they are becoming relevant again. Some great ideas in there in regards to having the advert setup like Jewel's shuttle screen. Also, I've moved a lot of 'Dead-thread' stories to the Troubled Core section so I can organize them between Ideas and Wrapped up Stories in the coming days.)

Knux, if you're still doing some organizing today, could you come up with a more accurate title for the "artwork - portfolio" thread? (Right now it's hella misleading because it contains neither artwork [from us] neither a portfolio.)

For now I've given it the placeholder name of 'Various images relevant to ChaosNova" but we can always come up with something better, I suppose it's more of a visual thought space, "oh, that looks nice!" I'll wait for suggestions on this one before renaming it further, also, if you think of anything that just works, go for it.

Also, we'll run with this new style for a time, and if there are issues or concerns, we can return to how things were, although for my money, this new layout is more asthetically pleasing, redundant or crossing sections have been removed or combined, and a lot of the one post stuff that should have gone to drive to begin with is now finally in its proper place. With the forum refined, transfer and back up to drive, as well as to the future forum has become much easier.

Thanks for the input, anymore concerns and suggestions, I'm all ears. Smile

I always enjoy your Forum Remodeling! I LOVE seeing your project grow, change, and get better!
If theres anything I can do, let me know!
I look forward to the changes!
(Is it time to update the background and such yet? ANy one have ideas to spruce up the place without losing the awesomeness? New colors?)
Also, can you Facebook me your PAtreon link again so I can share it out for you more often? I share what I've shared before when it comes up, but I'm not on every day, and would like to support your causes more.
