Freakin punks breaking my phaser records....Hope you boys like tough love, because I'm not in the mood for any security breaches on this voyage.

After your voyage of several months, it feels good to finally touchdown on the planet. Spawn planet had always been dry, arid, and rocky. That is, after all, the best conditions for finding Cyrstilium. All the members of the crew had seen pictures and videos taken by the first ship and so the crew thought that they knew what to expect when they reached the planet.

But the planet they find before them is, if anything, even more desolate then before. The rust red earth has been changed, in many places, to an unnatural grey dust. Something has profoundly changed this planet. This change causes some ease in the crew and it is decided that they will take a cautious approach at first.

The crew waits on the ship for the rest of the day to see if any of the extrasensory changes the other crew described occurs. Nothing happens. The crew sends out a probe looking for life, but none is found. That night there is an uneasy sleep aboard the ship that night. In the morning the crew wakes up, and everyone is still there.

When the crew landed on the planet,
Captain KWhit was able to reveal that the fleet has stated that they may not leave the planet with anything less then 60 units of Cyrstilium. As the crew awakes to their first full day on the planet there is some thought that perhaps it is time to begin to find the Cyrstilium but others feel that perhaps it is prudent to wait a bit longer.

But what is known is that this peace is just as unnerving as the chaos the crew was expecting.

looks like we got hoops, schmidty and path along with myself ready to go out mining. A group of 4 seems good...need to see if any of us has or needs phasers first.

Question for barkeep:

The Exploration mission says that it - "Gives a bonus to a future type of mission"

If we go on a water exploration mission, does that mean that we get a bonus on all water gathering missions in the future? Or is it a one time bonus that applies to only the next water mission we take?

Barkeep - question on my role.

Quote:
First Officer (Rank 2) (2 AP per cycle)

Give Order: Day Only Same as Captain above EXCEPT that the First Officer may not modify the Captain’s orders. 1 AP

Plan Away Team Mission: Day or Night The First Officer may plan an away team mission. The First Officer must specify what kind of mission is being planned. This may be done in advance and saved for later. 1 AP

Lead Mutiny: Day Only The First Officer may lead a mutiny against the Captain. This does not need to be sent to the GM and may just be posted in the thread. (NOTE: This action may be rescinded by the First Officer any time prior to the end of voting, but he will not regain his AP) 0 AP the first time it is performed, 1 AP when performed at any time after that

to plan a mission do I PM you for the 1 AP or just state it prior to the mission?

Ah, but since our useless engineers are fresh out of positronic span-flexers, and OBVIOUSLY are also out of bicubit-terranillium, I find I should prolly just go mining.

Right now I think we need to be focused on forming strategies.

That's why I'm getting rule clarifications and asking questions to make sure I understand the mechanics of the game. The last Spawn game was a long time ago.




So if anybody has any strategic thoughts/questions, let's discuss.

I agree we need a scientist to give us a boost too.

looking at the water we have now (85) and the players we have now (19)

we can last with the number of players we have now for just over 17 days. I would have someone guard the water, if we keep it safe we shouldn't need to get more IMO. Then we can concentrate on mining.

The bonus decreases in value the more missions of those type that are made.

A few clarifications:
1. You can have more then one away team a day, though not all away teams must go at once.
2. Slaves can acompany any away team, but the slavemaster may only lead a team of all slaves.

You PM me with it. However, it can be in the same PM where you assign away teams. This serves as a good time to remind everyone that you must PM me with all actions for them to be official, except for votes (and later on Lift-Off).

I apologize. To make things easier, I multiplied the water requirement by 4 so really you have enough water for 5 days. Thought that had been changed in the rules, but evidently not. It is now correct. However, as long as the water plant is working you have an unlimited amount of water so right now you could stay on the planet forever and never run out of water.

Slaves are dumb by nature. Without being told what to do they will pretty much do nothing, as long as the slave pens are working, that is.

So maybe we should have two teams? One to explore and one to mine?

Here are the most important things that we need to focus on, IMO:
Guard the water plant.
Guard the cargo hold.
Away team mission to either: mine, or explore for mining, or both.

Secondary priorities:
Guard the security HQ.
Guard the slaves pen.
Guard the engine room.


Any others?

Spawn can not normally attack during the day. This is true for people and locations. This is why the protect and spy actions are available only during the night cycles

I wonder about the wisdom of the exploration-type away mission. Does it make sense to put our men in harm's way for one of these?

Remember that "There is a 10% chance that each member of an Away Team will become a Spawnling when on an Away Team." I hate the idea of putting ourselves at risk on one of these when the mission itself delivers an unknown benefit. However, if we're going to go on one, now is the time, since the benfit can last us for multiple mining missions later on.

What are your thoughts, crew?

I think we really need to break them into day/night actions though so we know where the AP will be spent.

Explore. It will likely make us take less time to mine and seems like a valuable option.

Good point.

I think the day actions that we'll be considering are away missions only, correct?

BTW, my edit above was to include the quote from sndvls because due to Anxiety's post, my response made no sense.

I hit edit before I remembered that editing posts is poor form in WW games. Sorry about that - been away from the game for awhile.

maybe we can send two away team missions today...one to mine and one to explore so we will hopefully come back with something.

I think this is a good idea, especially since there's likely (as I understand it) to be some repairs, etc tomorrow. It seems this of any day would be the one to make more than one mission.

Caveat: I didn't play the first one, so I might be talking out of my ass.

If we do two, toss me into whichever. Split up me and the other scientist, so we give a bonus to both away teams.

I'm just that damn good.

So I guess we should start with the exploration mission.

IMO:
Sndvls needs to plan it and lead it.
We should send Coffee Warlord as our scientist.
And then we need 3 other volunteers.

Note: These are not orders.

SnDvls needs to send in the order of who all is going and I will then run the away team. Members of the away team don't need to do anything.
