So, the aim of the game I started recently is to complete Emissary lost, going via the nice prequel with the Ghazali. I just finished reading the scenario and while I really like it and think it will be a blast, one thing that wasn’t well thought is the situation with groups that have bigger ships, that can’t be accommodated into the hangars of the liner. My group has Class IV, huge loan and frantic about anything that happens with their ship.
So the line of thought is how to get them on the vessel without too much pain and definitely without losing the current ship. I don’t want them to have the ship, as it will more or less invalidate big fun of the scenario.
So I have been thinking on the following:
- Their patron wants them on the mission because of the great benefits they will get but does not want to risk the main ship due to the unknown situation. Having a Legion destroyer is a concerns. Better loan small frigate and use it there, investing some money is stasis pods.
- Their ship is under repair when this happens. Signing up for the mission is going to pay the bills while the space bird is not flying. This is lame approach, as there is no guarantee that the ship will be in the pit stop, unless I enforce something.
- All members are ordered by the Legion and the Colonial Agency to go into Ghazali for the trip and the bigger ships will be commanded by Legion’s crew and escorted. I don’t like this approach.
What do you think on those, any other ideas?
