Full Description

Heroes for Hire is a science fiction/fantasy game using the new Starfinder RPG rules from Paizo Publishing. Set in a slightly modified version of the core games published setting it is a sci-fi/fantasy romp across the galaxy full of action, adventure, romance, humor and maybe some dancing.

Inspired by space movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, Ice Pirates, Battle beyond the Stars and a plethora of grade b space movies from the 1980's (most available on you tube) it follows a band of down on their luck crew of a crazy starship trying to make a living without selling out to the Galactic Man or falling victim to the numerous intergalactic crime lords and their nefarious schemes all while desperately trying not to become the next meal of the hordes of the insect like Swarm bent on devouring the galaxy.

This game will have lot's of action, lasers, nukes, magic, more lasers, rock and roll, zombies, androids, huge space battles, even more lasers this time with different colors, pissed off space gods, pizza, sexy space witches, horrible alien bugs to kill by the score...did I mention the lasers...

  1. What's new in this game
  2. Having pulled the scam off perfectly, Sunshine allowed herself a little swagger as she returned to her pilot seat. "Gosh, y'all, thanks, this is a bit much for lil' ol' me but I do appreciate it," she commented over comms, before guiding the ship in for a landing.
  3. Sgt Cuff watched and listened (to the parts he could hear anyways) to the interactions going on before him. The mouse, this 'Captain' Sunshine didn't look like a captain but then being a mouse who could tell. Cuff kept one of his eyes trained on the Lashunta, something about this just didn't smell right but then again what about this assignment did. "Cpl Dunn cancel the inspection and fall back to the shuttle," He gave Sunshine a slight bow, "sorry to have bothered you ma'am, your clear to proceed. As soon as our shuttle is clear the task force will send you instructions for navigating the mine filed. Welcome to your new world." And with that Sgt Cuff backed back into the airlock and returned to his ship. Sunshine and Jexa returned to the control room and watched the shuttle pull away and head back to its mother ship and as promised as soon as the shuttle was clear the Solanya received a com fro the fleet. "Solanya, you are cleared to proceed, we are sending you course information do not deviate. Welcome to Cearista.
  4. At being called Captain, Sunshine draws herself up to her full almost-three-feet in height and nods, then coughs to clear her throat and project her voice. "I'm sure - ahem, I'm sure everything is in order. I, the Captain, am just having a friendly conversation with our guest, and I'm sure everything will get straightened out."
  5. Jexa listened to the message and nodded. "I'm going to go check on Captain Sunshine.": she said to as she moved to exit the bridge so that the other would be sure to hear and would catch on if they were not already thinking the same thing. She moved down the corridor to the hatch and cautiously peeked around the corner first, before stepping out from behind it. "Is everything okay, Captain?" she asked Sunshine while giving the Vesk a once over while looking as impressed and intimidated by them as she believably could. She knew Vesk liked to feel all big and badass, so playing into that a bit would help pad their egos and make them feel a bit more comfortable. < Though that Abadar ass gave us the ship docs, you ARE the only registered owner for the ship at the moment, if I recall correctly. > she reminded Sunshine telepathically as she awakened her nanites just in case.
  6. Sunshine grins that slightly too cute ysoki grin, and began her practiced steps in this game. "'Hi, my name's Sunshine, I just wanted to swing on by what's supposed to be the new homeworld. You all wouldn't be worried about little ol' me, now would you?'" She clicked her tongue.
  7. "I dunno," Echo said to the AI's avatar hologram as she watched the scene play out over the shipboard sensors. "Is this when I push the 'flood the corridors with neurotoxin' button? What do you think, Solenya?"
  8. The airlock cycled and the hatch iris'd open and sunshine look up and up. The armored Vesk must have been close to fifteen feet tall, Sunshine wondered if it was all armor or if the reptiloid was that big outside of the metal shell. She couldn't see any energy or projectile weapons but it was holding a very wicked looking axe with a pike on the end for thrusting, the edges of the blades all sparking with purple energy. "Welcome aboard the Solanya" she said while sketching a little bow. The vesk's helmet swiveled down to look at her, "Sgt Cuff to Lt Jegg, I'm aboard. There is a mouse here, how should I proceed." "Tanjit all to Compile, why didn't they tell us they were a mouse ship. verify that it is indeed a mouse ship apologize and get your butt back over here." The signal was obviously on a secure Vesk Military channel but everyone of the Solanya's crew had the signal transmitted directly to them and heard the whole conversation courtesy of the ship.
  9. "I'm comin', I'm comin', hold your hoppers," grumbled the ysoki as she sucked in a deep breath and made her way to the airlock. If no one else would open it, then she'd go ahead and do it.
  10. The clang of armored vesk could be plainly heard through the hull as over the loud speaker came a surly Vesk voice. "Open the gods be dammed airlock!"
  11. "Well, I very much would like to not do that." Sunshine hopped back in the hot seat and put both hands on the yoke, while her tail snuck around and rested on the Drift engine control panel... just in case. "But maybe we shouldn't give away what this ship can do; if word gets out everyone'll be on our tails. So: talking sounds good."
  12. "Right...we can't out run those guns from a dead stop and if I spool the drift engines up they'll detect it before they are charged." said Sunshine as she flipped more switches and grasped the steering yokes. The holographic image of the ships avatar, which had miniaturized itself to a six inch figure when others had entered the room smiled up at Sunshine. "There my friends I have unlocked the emergency capacitors it will allow you to bypass the normal spooling charge and initiate a drift jump." "You can do that?" "My dear friend there are many things we can do if we are in Unity..." "Hey I don't thing they are going to dock" said the halfelven priest with a grimace as he pointed at the view screen. On the screen the shuttle had closed within a few kilometers and moved along side the Solanya keeping it's nose and guns pointed at her. as the slowed to a halt the hero's for hire could see a good half dozen armored vesk troops ont he shuttles hull and as the watched the space-armored troops jumped from their ride towards the Solanya. Gorunta smiled and chuckled, "Smart," he said with admiration. He put his hand on Evies shoulder "If your gonna talk you better get to it, otherwise, your al probably gonna die."
  13. "Are you kidding?" Evana's accent was like tender back rub for the ears. "Vesk are militant and about as dumb as snake mittens," as she passed by Gorunta she smacked him gently on the ass and offered him a coy smile. "But we still love you big guy." She addressed Clevus. "They're singular in their focus, which makes it difficult to skirt them around their own beliefs, but their perceived superiority can be used against them." "So, is that a yes?" Clevus asked with a single arched brow. "It is a 'yes', darling." With a wink to him she turned to address the crew. "Just play everything cool, guys. We'll try it the simple way fist, but as always be prepared for the worst. Sunny, love, please be ready to get us out of here if things go 'tiefling bride at an aasimar wedding', if you could. Gorunta, sweetie, you have less than a minute to fill me in on properly addressing your culture without insulting them." Gorunta snorted. "Don't speak at all and do whatever they say. Submit. Utterly and completely." "Bugger. Yeah," Evana winced and looked about with sarcastic contemplation. "Look about, honey, we're really not that demographic." She clasped her hands together and her smile widened into jovial mischief. "Improv! My specialty. Alright people, let's try and look like we're not a gaggle of deviants."
  14. Sunshine completed the prep to allow the vesk to pull up portside, then hopped out of her chair. "Okay, time for the not-so-fun part..." She crumbled up a yipi stik and sprinkled it on her holdout pistol, then stuck it in her mouth, hiding it in one of her cheek pockets. Upon everyone's askance look, she shrugged. "It tastes less gun-oily this way." Then she looked upwards, in the general direction of what she thought of as the ship. "Solyana, we're gonna have some new guests, and we're going to try playing nice with them as a first resort. Hope you don't freak out too much, okay?"
  15. Okay. Should I have Sunshine prep the ship for boarding, then?
  16. you did and so did a couple of others but the posts were not action posts and really didnt give me anything that i could use to move the scene forward and there are three other players who have not posted in a long time. I know rl gets in the way, i know that sometimes you just dont feel like posting lord knows i get that way and have to drag my ass back to the keyboard. I am not criticizing anyone I just want to know if we still want to play this one or if it's grown tired and needs to be put to pasture. I have two games going that are fairly actice and get a lot of my attention and two that are quite frankly growing grass. This is one of those and I can and want to give it full attention if the return is there. that's all again not bitching at anyone just want to know
  17. Thought I'd posted recently? Sorry about that. Will tend to it when I'm back from today's finals.
  18. Similar place as Dave. I've had limited time to post lately, and I've tended to focus on the games that people are posting to...the ones that are quieter have fallen by the wayside for me, which isn't fair to them. I'll try to be better about that.
  19. Sorry I've been neglecting this. I just lost my place in the story and before I knew I had no idea what was even going on. I'll try to add something.
  20. I think it's on Charlotte/Sunshine to heave to and prepare to be boarded. I think we're waiting on that.
  21. if you guys are still interested in this y'all have a shuttle with a bunch of vesk approaching your ship. and while i have had post dancing around it no one has addressed what y'all are actually doing. If the interest is gone let me know and i will either cancel the game or rework it for those who are still interested. but please give me something
  22. The Ship's avatar re-materialized in the engineering compartment next to Echo, or rather another avatar as the other was still in the control center conversing with Sunshine. Solanya pursed her lips and fixed the artificial life form with a glare. "I will forgive your disrespect of earlier and allow you to make amends. Are you the one responsible for the unauthorized modifications done to my space frame?" Echo grinned. "Some of them, yeah. They're pretty nice, right? Still got a lot of work to do though." She tapped her cheek with her fingers as she rested her chin in her hand, gazing at the hologram meditatively for a moment. "What kind of changes do you want made? Don't get me wrong, this is a great ship...maybe even better than I figured at first...but there's always room for more and better." With a glance at the display monitoring the bridge and communications, Echo shrugged. That gambit would work or it wouldn't. If it did, she wouldn't have to worry about it. If it didn't...there'd be panicked calls down to engineering for shield and engine power any second now. She'd jump into that ravine when she came to it.
  23. Upon being reminded of the grift, Sunshine fought the urge to take evasive maneuvers, and began practicing. "'Hi, my name's Sunshine, I just wanted to swing on by what's supposed to be the new homeworld. You all wouldn't be worried about little ol' me, now would you...'"
  24. Clevus stares at the huge Vesk, tilts his head realizing that the lizard wasn't as dumb as he looks. "You know that just might work. Good thinking." he gives Gorunta a nod of respect and reminds himself to keep an eye on him in the future. "Think you can sell that Evana?"
  25. "No, the Abadarians planned to have as a cover story because they're racist idiots." Gorunta retorted. "We could say Sunshine wanted to visit the new ysoki homeworld and bring friends along. Maybe we can leverage a warning about the Church of Abadar too."
