Freeze-Dried Astronaut Roster

It's time for another Character Matrix for your favorite freeze-dried scouts!

I'm running the Redshirts Stars Without Numbers game on Wednesday nights at the FLGS.  This week's adventure was quite fun, but the actual play report will be in a later blog post.    This post is just about the characters.

We had eight players this time around - up from 6.  We attempted using a caller - which worked - sort of.  I think it deflected a bit of the chaos - but none of us is used to working with a caller, so it will take some time.

Four of the players, Adelaide, Seamus, Felipe, and The Boy, had the same characters.  Kaye the robot didn't make it out alive last time, so he made a warrior named Jack Slate.  I threatened to rub chalk against him.  Merwyn didn't quite understand how I was dealing with the security and computer skills, so he built a fresh character to be an expert hacker named Nathaniel Taylor.  I was somewhat worried about the new player, Chonga.  I've heard stories about the guy.  Scary stories.  But Chonga was well behaved, made a Psychic Medic, and played him really well.  So much for stories. :)  And Crazy-Ass Tim finally showed up to play.  He kept on whining and making excuses about not being able to play for a while.  Something about getting married.  Geez.

So - remember that random officer rank chart that I adjusted to make lieutenants be rare?  Well, two of the players rolled lieutenants.   UGH.  Okay, back to the drawing board.  Maybe instead of a 1 in 6 chance, it should be revved up to a 12 on a 2d6.  Or something.  Now we've got THREE lieutenants.  Double-Geez.

Next time we could have ten players, so a matrix like this won't fit on the blog in the same manner.  Not that many people care, I don't think, but showing the party composition is at least fun to me.  So here they are, your Redshirts for October 10th, 2012:
