After 6 Months play: The state of the Crazy Diamond

After 6 months (to the day) of the play the Crazy Diamond Sector has been a bit more fleshed out by the voyages of the MV Scattergun Approach and the sterling help provided in scenarios and ideas by my friend Stubber. Here then is what the Crazy Diamond sector looks like now:

the-diamondupdated_20170113

A lot more crowded than it was in the original post on the sector.

What are these systems and powers then ?

Port Raja – the pirate base and El Dorado the system with the colony of Sandinista featured in the first sessions.

Kulipari is home to the Planet Marcos which has on it the Social Democratic Republic of Princip (as well as rival Mongolian, Somali and Turkish settled colonies.)

Tau Verde is a jump nexus point being terraformed and home to Corporate interests

Romero as well as having a quarantine orphanage is home to the planet D’Argenta

Van Gogh system was home to the Ark (and the colony of Jomsvikings space nazis flattened by the Ark) as well as rebel Nigerians and Tamil colony the Republic of Sudhara Bharat

Nibeugen is an industrial world – under one Government – think Dickins meats Bladerunner with hints of Bas Lang.

Abyss Station and feudal Azend shall feature on future scenarios. (And I have a couple on the map I need now to look up!)

Episode XI Point me at the Sky 

The Scattergun Approach delivers medical supplies to a the besieged rebel city of New Nanking  on the planet of Taiping. Thelonius spots a ground crew putting an explosive device on the ship. He draws and the saboteur takes a another ground crewman hostage.

The spaceport militia head over – but don’t want to execute the sneak because of visiting interaetellar press. Eventually the villain called Tsi Hsiu admits her was hired by ‘the Pride’ (the same pirate gang as the Sher Khan .) the charge would explode and the pride ship Sabor , hidden in the asteroid belt, would attack the crippled Scattergun. 

However he claims to know where the Pirates stash their treasure and offers to give the location in return for his life.

Managing to out manoeuvre the Sabor in the asteroid they set course for the moon of Nueva Esperanza where the pirates keep their stash in the D’acconian highlands in Galtania .

After and rough and ready dogfight with the Pride guard ship the Scarface Claw which does extensive damage to the Scattergun (and lasers keep jamming from Mongoose hair) they land. Thelonius doing an amazing job of damage control.

The base is in the invasion path of invading Chinese communists & defending Galt Mech. They load up the following treasure and make their escape: 

1 twin mounted anti ship plasma cannon & fire control system (needs a turret) (handy as the ship has a suitable hole in it.)

2 scrambler motorbikes

3 dozen Silurian slime weasels 

4 scuttler general service bots (think red dwarf)

5 Niptish Wyen (Weyland-Yutani Enfield) L4B6 (Special Naval Landing Forces variant) pulse rifles with under slung grenade launcher, advanced sights & bayonets. (Power pods / grenades & bayonets provided.) these have a non bull pup configuration & folding stock so are more assault carbines than actual rules. 

6 apparently human females in stasis

Episode IX: Merry Christmas Song 

The crew are shipping presents donated by the SANTA Cotporation  to a children’s orphanage but Thelonius is contacted by a mildly psychic taking Mongoose with large hand like paws calling himself Gef.


The cheeky ferret is an Evolved Life Form (or ELF) who are held as slaves by the SANTA corporation. He offers the crew money & psychic training if they assist a revolt. He babbles a form of revolutionary Marxism with a all the attending process, procedure and  ideological purity.

However it’s Christmas so they decide to help him. After delivering the presents to the orphanage.

Landing at a friendly world the crew score weapons and to find things sell Gef to touring vapid orange controversial dodgy haired United American presidential candidate Brian Fart. Gef escapes from the Fartitator and they head back to the SANTA corp  

Approaching under cover of wanting further work they are offered a job escorting biological warfare assets – ELFs! Gef lied to them.

Geff gets paranoid – hides in the bowels of the ship disabelling sensors. Thelonius confronts him in the engine room and after a stand off there is fire fight – resolved by Al the alien (effectively a raptor type dinosaur) following his instincts and biting the head off Geff.

(For future adventures Gef may or may not have comrades called Buck or Brown Jenkin…)
