Pity's Long-Broken Urn



Pity's Long-Broken Urn is an Escritoire-class yacht registered out of the Bellange system in the Spindrift subsector. Originally commissioned by the Marquis Elais de Sainte-Marie, it was soon transferred to the Carpe Consortium, a limit liability corporation on which Elais was a board member. Marquis Elias' dream of making the Urn a for-profit party barge have thus far failed - the profit part. Not the party part. The owners of Pity's Long-Broken Urn are listed below:

Marquis Elais de Sainte-Marie - 6669BD
     Carouse-3, Deception-3, Persuade-3, Astrogation-1, Pilot(Spaceship)-1, etc.
Elias is a noble dilettante from Sainte-Marie.  He has spent his life acquiring money, land, and titles he didn't deserve - creating a long list of people who want him harmed or dead.  Recently, he decided to explore new worlds - worlds free of people trying to kill him, that is.

Legendary Idol Neva Bloomberg - 3B6E8D
     Singing-4, Carouse-3, Steward-2, Dance-1, Acting-1, Deception-1, Persuade-1, etc.
Hailing from the subsector capital of Champaigne, Neva became a pop idol at a young age, which was followed by a stellar career and sector-wide singing tour.  She crossed the wrong power-broker, however, and now is retired off-world, failing miserably at being low-key.

Lt. Max Guttman - 687A76 
     Shotgun-4, Slug Pistol-2, Blades-2, Medic-1, Pilot(spaceship)-1, etc.
Max was born on the desolate planet of Dustbowl, learning to survive by his wits and his shotgun at an early age.  To escape, he joined the Imperial marines, transferred into the navy, then settle down until retirement as a cop for Space Port Authority at Champaigne.

Lt. Matthew John Gattis - 4A4866
     Slug Pistol-4,  Engineer-1, Mechanic-1, Persuade-1, Investigate-1, Recon-1, etc.
Matthew's sad story starts with his failure to become a merchant and joining the Space Port Authority as a cop.  His carreer destroyed for digging too hard, he became a free trader, but was run out of business.  He then toyed with being a pirate, but his ship was destroyed.

Guenhwyvar - F6C766
     Medic-2, Slug Rifle-2, Dew Claw-2, Energy Rifle-1, Comms-1, Sensors-1, etc.
Guenhwyvar is an Aslan from a Hierate colony in the Trojan Reach.  He served a long, illustrious life in a mercenary company.  He now searches the Imperium looking for ways to bring his clan back to power.



So, that makes up the characters for the Traveller game we are playing right now.  I'll get into more detail about what has happened - and all of the bad smelling fall out - very soon. :)

  1. F strength? Guenhwyvar is tough. Neva an E intelligence? Not a real blonde, is she. Someone's missing a stat. But which stat?

  2. Love the name of the ship, and the crew looks very interesting. So giving SWN a rest? Have you thought of using the SWN Faction rules with Traveller?

    1. Crazy-Ass Tim named the ship - so props go to him - especially if you know the rest of the Wilde quote. :)

      No, no rest for SWN. We are playing SWN and Traveller at teh same time. Well, not at teh EXACT same time, but in an every other week round robin schedule.

      I have thought of using a TON of SWN stuff with Traveller. And a TON of Traveller stuff with SWN. I'm in a candy store of sci-fi goodness and my head is spinning.
