RPG - Crafting your NPC Crew
Every ship needs a crew.
POSITION WITHIN THE CREW:
APPEARANCE (General outline or image):
PREVIOUS AFFILIATION (ONI / Red or Blue / Civilian / Other):
You can be as extensive or as brief as you like. At a minimum, you have to supply the first four items, from Name to Position within the crew; everything that follows is optional.
You are allowed either one AI or one Brain in a Jar to handle non-physical tasks. In essence, an AI or a Brain in a Jar becomes the ship.
Restating what has been posted in an SB thread, AIs will NOT be allowed to jump around from armor to armor, they will NOT be allowed to create robots so that they can wander about the ship and go planet side and the will NOT be allowed to run riot over other computerized systems (AI Godding).
Advancement within a crew is at the option of the Player/Character Captain. If another Player/Character chooses to be a crew-member, they remain their current rank until they either Mutiny, desert or obtain a promotion.
A Mutiny MUST be with permission of the Captain and MUST be pre-approved. You are NOT a Klingon!
A Player/Character Crew Member may desert at his or her own discretion without either pre-knowledge or approval. However, depending on the manner of desertion, you may have a very hostile Player/Character Captain wanting to Seek, Locate and Blow your deserting buttocks away.
A Player/Character Crew Member may, if they choose, desert then elevate him/herself to the rank of Free Trader Captain.
