Spinward Star, LLP

The Count’s Gambit, Part Seven

  • On Quopist, the crew get the captured vargr corsair up and running. Taking it into orbit, they, along with Lord Mika Anjiliac, they undergo an extensive decontamination process to ensure they aren’t carriers.
  • Following decon, the crew undergo equally lengthy debriefings with CDR Angela Krin, the commander of the Resolute. Haank, being an old flame of hers, later spends a little time catching up.
  • With the Miss Adventure repaired, the crew depart Quopist and head on to Porozlo. During the trip, they get to know Lord Mika better and find him a friendly, gregarious sort of fellow.
  • Upon arrival at Porozlo, the crew are directed to land directly at Anjiliac City where they are met by Count Para himself who is extremely pleased at the return of his son. The crew are paid and invited to attend a fete that evening to celebrate Mika’s return.
  • Among Count Para’s retinue is an old friend and ally of some of the crew, Corbin Spiirs. The crew are surprised to discover Spiirs is now a knight.
  • At the fete, the crew mix with the local nobles and business leaders. During this fete, they learn that the archduke has summoned all Spinward Marches nobles to Mora for the long-delayed Holiday List celebration. Lord Mika, knowing that the crew have to go to Mora themselves for the trial of Adric Mason, offers the Miss Adventure to take them there. Both he and Sir Corben will be aboard the Adventure

GM Notes:

  • CommJunkee was out for this session.
  • This entire session felt like a mess to me, but none of the players seemed to have problems with it. I knew from the beginning that this was basically going to be an “epilogue” rather than a full-on session.
  • This brings adventure three to a close.
  • Since we’re livestreaming our games every Saturdays (6:00PM Eastern) at Ronnke’s Twitch channel and then later uploading the stream on the YouTube channel, we’ve decided to dial back on the extensiveness of the recap to just the overall outline.
