That RPG sounds fun.
Is it an online thing - If so post the link!!
Or is this D&D style dice and real world stuff?
My wife just about tolerates real world poker schools, but might draw the line at an 80 style Oolite D&D evening. "You role a one, your python is reduced to 5 shield points!"
It is a classic tabletop RPG, complete with table, dice, and players screaming at each other at the top of their lungs. One of my favorite moments was, after several meetings between the two groups of PCs, a large showdown was taking place. The larger group in their Python, the smaller group in the Adder, and a Krait that they had juryrigged up with a one shot, very long downtime hyperdrive.
The Python had just obliterated a couple of rival pirate Cobra Mk IIIs, with an ingenius use of routing engine power through their forward beam laser. Unfortunately for them, the Krait was still out of scanner range as they turned, and began firing on the Adder with their rear laser (The blast from the forward cannon essentially destroyed it. They needed some long drydock time to fix it) The Krait swooped in, and launched off a missile that had been modified.
Instead of the standard concussion/explosive warhead, it was fitted with a large canister of nanites programmed to enter a person's brain through skin pores, and incapacitate them through the administration of hormones/drugs manufactured by the nanites. On the nose of this missile was a titanium drillhead. (What those salvagers won't think of next) As the python fired off their rear laser, the missile struck.
There was much dice throwing, and cursing as the crew of the python fell asleep one by one over the ensuing moments. After the capture of the python the two crews have since finally started working together.
