Well guys - feel free to post!

::laugh First I need to try to remember what my character even looks like, it's been so long ago since I even thought about him!

I'm still game though.

Hah, yeah - I know that feeling... gotta' dig out all those old notes I filed somewhere (using the 'file in a pile' system, naturally ::wink )!

Yeah - I'm a paper guy really... too many computer-crashes or accidental 'oops I've wiped out my life's work' incidents around to make me want to keep too much stuff on computer... ::wink

... But mostly it's so that I can relax & read over notes without being stuck in front of a glowing monitor all day.

Hmmm... a few of the players are posting on the site, but not on the game...

... if anyone who wants to drop the game could let me know it'd be kinda' helpful - cheers.

Not planning on dropping out, just feeling very much in the backseat at present... I'll see if I can type up a short 'I'm here' post, at least...

With the appearance of the local, Rhianna uses 'Dowse' to determine the the location of any other locals in the area. She then uses her Device to send the info to the ship and the minicomp of both team comanders.

and---

Reaching out with her extra-senses Rhianna quickly 'feels' more of the natives, perhaps half-a-dozen, slipping quickly through the noetic ether & moving towards the team...

Do we have rappelling lines in our utility belts? Kinda like stormtrooper belts? Or have I misconstrued the info on the hole and we can step down?

Yes you need a line to climb down (it's, essentially, a drop from the ceiling), but yes again - you knew you were facing this so you'll have some gear with you.

Instinctively he grabs the female native and protectively moves her behind him, at the same time standing with his palms facing the new natives.

Captain Kirk to the rescue!!! ::getsome

Waiting on replies from Malkboy in Beta team (but I am aware of his situation & will move on even he can't get to post), & archer, Concrete Dragon, phoenix & Asbjørn in Alpha team...

Guys - I'm guessing there's a bit of the old 'just stand here & follow orders' thinking going on, right? It's an issue which tends to crop up in any game with an official in-game command structure in place, but I'd pefer not to have that sort of thing restricting what people think they can do.

The TEF has always valued initiative - it's not meant to be as strict in it's command structure as a real military outfit. Just because the Captain is talking to aliens, doesn't mean everyone else should just wait around for his next lot of orders. Feel free to do stuff yourselves - in fact, it's the characters' duty to explore & experience new things.

Again think back to the old Star Trek model - characters tend to do their thing, & actual direct in-your-face orders are a rarity. I'm sure that Prince of Boredom isn't gonna' come down on anyone like a ton of bricks for actually doing something... ::wink Right now O'Malley's really just said 'don't anyone start shooting' - which is fair enough - that doesn't really mean 'do nothing'.

Try to think what your characters would want to do in the situation - first contact with a previously unknown alien species - stand there doing nothing? Well... not if they passed the TEF psych-evaluation they won't.

TEF officers are meant to all be explorers, not drones.

And please... try to have fun... ::wink

Edit: okay, so O'Malley did say 'nobody move a muscle' - try not to take it literally (& Prince - try to give 'em a bit more wiggle room in the ol' orders... ::sly ).

Same goes for Beta team...Meyers just said "Impress me", feel free to do what you want...and I kinda separated the NPCs from the players when dividing the team into two teams...sneaky huh?

I've just been glancing back over some of my old games & this...

"If you loose this fight, Suvorov, you're cactus! If he doesn't finish you I promise I'll get you before these root rats get me in the nuddy! Get him! Shove that spear up his clacker!"
"Kick his ass, Alex!"

... made me laugh my ass off! It's so 'un-Star Trek' it's beautiful! ::lol

Kirk & Spock face off in the Vulcan arena when a yell comes from Doctor McCoy,

'Kick his ass, Jim!'

... Priceless... ::biggrin
