I confess to a slight confusion myself, as after lunch and the Major's departure to dress for cricket, Carson was in conversation with McBean about going to town for supplies, an elephant gun, and possibly some books. Then next thing I know Carson is outside spotting the Marine in our ship, and immediately jumped into action on that.

I am afraid we will need clarification from Aramis to get it all straight.

Either that or we just decide where our characters are right now and run with it from there.

Carson is outside right now dealing with the intruder, waiting for the arrival of someone with more authority to examine the camera and decide on disposition of the intruder. After that he will be ready to go into town with McBean and Smithers and anyone else so inclined.

As far as I know...
  • the ship is in the formation field, literally acros the Street.
  • naval ordinance Wagon parked in the street
  • McBean is either at the match (line of sight, but not hearing), or inside changing, or standing nearby. Lluís, your call.
  • Tunnaud is just finishing his lunch and sherry. He is with two mess stewards.
  • Carson is standing just at the cargo hatch
  • a sjt maj of engineers is nearby, looking out of place.
  • Smithers just ran to the building.
  • McPhee is at the match, which said field is beside the building
    so is the general.

Departing in the next week, the planned course is retrograde and inbound, almost due inbound - about 15° trailing of sun. I've actually checked several orreries. They don't all agree precisely, but close enough. 15° to 30° from due in. Happy accident.

Really? I was under the impression we weren't leaving until the 18th. Giving us 9 days to prepare.

What supplies is the Survey Office providing? Especially in regard to cages, specimen jars and means to capture live specimens?

How much room is aboard the ship? Will we each have a separate room or will we be sharing? How much can be devoted to live specimens and other collected items? Is there room for a portable lab?

Also medical supplies?

Am I asking for too much detail? I kinda get the impression Aramis is tough (but fair) GM. I'd rather ask too much than be underprepared.

Additionally should these questions be asked in game?

One large crate of specimen jars (assorted sizes), nested, separated with diapers. 1qt, 1 gal, 2 gal, 4 gal; 32 each, with mason jar type 2-part lids (the flat, then the screw ring), and and a pair of metal drums (55gal each) of formaldehyde. no provision for larger specimens is provided. (total is just about 0.6 tons. Each drum, between drum and 53 gal of formaldehyde, is about 500#.

There is a butterfly net, a dip-net (both 24" diameter), and a pair of 6'x6' nets of 1/3" hauser, about 3" on centers. a single 4x8' fishing net of 1/8" cord, 1" openings, with galvanized weights. It's not loaded - but it's in the warehouse on the property. When asked, Henri will be directed to grab a couple pirates and oversee it's loading.

Also, in the shipment is rain gear for everyone. Navy issue canvas raingear, plus rubberized raingear. One set each. Umbrellas for the "officers" - McBean, McPhee, Tunnaud, DuBuois.

One canvas tent, 8x10', 4' at edge, 8' at center. Metal poles. About 200#. It's loaded.

The Naval issued supplies are gun parts for the HRC's, ammunition, and spare parts for the boilers, as well general oiling supplies, cleaning supplies, and cooking supplies.

Finally, he will take a look at the patent plate himself, applying his intellect and keen powers of observation to try to figure out the significance himself (has it been tampered with? has the original been replaced with a new one? was Dennis simply copying the info?).

Observation 4 (4d6)[5][2][3][4](14)

Intellect 5 (5d6)[3][5][3][6][3](20)
I did not see any GM response to this. Does that mean that Carson was unable to figure out what Dennis was doing with the patent plate, or figured it out but nothing is wrong, or ???

Remember the Highland Pride has a lab that allows for biological ressearch, so, I guess the lab is there, no need for a portable one:

What does Mcbean know about McPee?

I guess the camera is his invention (for the care he put on setting it). Is he an expert on mechanics? If so, what specialty does he have on them?
