In order to familiarize myself with Firefight, and becuase it’s an example that sorely needs to be done, I’m planning on playing out a Firefight in space. I’ve got two characters (an Urfan Void Lord and his Vaylen Usurper nemesis) and their respective ships (a Hammer Cruiser and a modfied Mercator). I’m going to post the charcters and then the vehicles. If there are any glaring problems, let me know. The characters a little flat becuase they were optimized for this example fight, but if I’ve dropped a major calculation, please call me on it.
After giving the characters and ships a chance to be heckled, I’ll set up the battle space and start kicking through the example. Hopefully, I’ll have everything written up and posted out in a few days.
So without further ado, our two antagonists:
Name: Garret Cross – Questing Void Lord
The Key to saving Humanity is out in the Void and I will find it!
We must unite against the vaylen, I aid all those who fight them.
Scheming nobles are no better than Vaylen and should be treated as such.
Everyone and everything coming onto the ship gets scanned.
Always arrive at the edge of a system to scan for trouble.
If crew members do something well, praise them within earshot of another.
