New players encouraged ---


TerlObar and Will are about to commence the epic "reel 6" portion of the game: boarding the enemy prison ship to rescue the captive prisoner (Princess Leotia Valentine XXII). They have full schematics of the craft and a contingent of MCR-4 combat robots, and about 20 minutes before the prison ship crew may effect any repairs to their disabled systems.

This boarding action can turn the tide of the game, where an upstart dictator has managed to wrest control of the UPF and establish a massive war machine to rule the Frontier with an iron grip for the past thirty years. Unlikely allies MalCo Enterprises (re: the Malthar from SF/KH:1 Dramune Run) have been providing some help along the way, forging the way for former UPF loyalists to re-enter the Frontier and hopefully take back control once more.

Current characters available include:

> the dralasite chief engineer Naralos

> the ifshnit jack of all trades Rastefir Stath http://www.mfbb.net/viewtopic.php?t=37&mforum=starfrontiers

> the yazirian gunner Terc Cren http://www.mfbb.net/viewtopic.php?t=11&mforum=starfrontiers

> the other yaz gunner, Terc's sister Cret http://www.mfbb.net/viewtopic.php?t=10&mforum=starfrontiers

> and the feline alien Katrina who serves as an astro-gunner on the escort fighter craft http://www.mfbb.net/viewtopic.php?t=29&mforum=starfrontiers

There is also a vruskan co-pilot/gunner Tarbikal that is staying behind on the host ship along with an NPC vrusk just in case the vessel needs to be deployed in an emergency http://www.mfbb.net/viewtopic.php?t=12&mforum=starfrontiers

Yep, the more players the merrier.

New players can enter at anytime, I'm NPC-ing the others for now but any new player can take one over at anytime.

It's play by post so there's no time block, ref posts descriptions and maps and the players post their actions/reactions. Currently the group has split in two, one group is about to cut into the aft cargo hold with a LPT and the other group is tackling the main airlock. Both positions are adjacent to each other, simply leading to separate sections.
