Introduction

Attempts at winning FTL while the crew gets to vote on both minor and crucial decisions. Join the dying adventures by posting /in in thread or by PM and your name will be used in place in whenever a new crew member is gained.

Rules/How Things Work

Player;
-The game will be played by me/whoever's playing as normal.
-The player can make suggestions/recomendations (as Captain's/AI's suggestion), but cannot vote.
Crew;
-By choice or by random, the game is paused at decisions where the crew can votes together on different choices (for example, what to spend on in Shops, what to upgrade, risk dying to spiders or not, etc).

-Vote deadlines are atleast 24 hours, game continues when either the deadline is reached or a majority of a decision has been voted on.

I will join the crew as long as Cheery dog is made captain.

as someone who has no idea how to play, he would be the best captain.

(Putting myself in to get this started)

Title Soundtrack

Begining the game on a clean save, meaning there's 1 ship variant to choose from; the Kestrel A
Spoiler: Ship and Crew
Image


Sector 1

Civillian Sector Explore Soundtrack

Game goes like this; survive 8 sectors and defeat the final boss to win.
Spoiler: Intro
Image


We're currently at the north-east of the map as the black ship orbiting the nebula. The green lines are jumps; jumping from 1 jump to another costs 1 fuel and 1 turn. Getting to the exit takes us to Sector 2, and the process repeats until Sector 8.
Spoiler: Sector Map
Image


The hideous red lines below shows the pathing I plan to take; while we want to maximise amount of jumps in a Sector we make, there's Rebels (baddies) chasing us. The Rebel fleet reaches our current position within 5 turns, and the exit gate within 11 turns, meaning we plan to make 10 jumps in this Sector.
Spoiler: Pathing
Image


...


Jump 1

Civillian Sector Battle Soundtrack

We've being boarded in a Nebula in a Plasma Storm :D
Spoiler:
Image


3 human hostiles beams on top of Firebringer. We could send Cheery and Urist in for a brawl, but I prefer a cheekier method.
Spoiler:
Image


CheeryDog mans the Door Controls, this gives us the ability to seal doors as we open up the backside of the ship into vaccum. Most creatures, including humans need oxygen to live, meaning they take damage whenever they're without it. Firebringer and Urist fights a retreating stance as the intruders becomes increasing weakened.
Spoiler:
Image


Firebringer mops up 2 kills (the third intruder suffocated), and takes a quick break in the Medbay before the next jump.
Spoiler:
Image


...


Jump 2

Here we meet some slavers/pirates. They're armed with a Dual Laser and Heavy Laser, which in English means we can take them but not without a few bruises and scratches. Alternatively, we could just sacrifice someone...
Spoiler:
Image


Vote 1

1)Draw straws and send a crew-member over to the slavers.
2)We will never surrender one of our crew to slavers! (Player recommendation)

Voting ends either after (expired on 2019-01-10 16:56:00) or a majority of votes has been reached (for 3 crew, it requires 2 to decide)

We will never surrender one of our crew to slavers!

Weapons up.

Heavy laser drops our shield and we take 2 hull dmg and 1 shield system damage from the Dual laser.
Spoiler:
Image


A barrage of our own triple barrel takes the slavers' weapon system completely offline, which allows Cheery and Firebringer to repair our Shields.
Spoiler:
Image


The slavers' destruction gives us 3 fuel, 1 drone part and 20 scraps. Also warcrimes.
Spoiler:
Image


...


Jump 3

Here we have Skynet a Rebel auto-scout bullying a small fuel station.
Spoiler:
Image


Skynet auto-scout is promptly terminated.
Spoiler:
Image


The crew quickly salvages the scraps and parts remaining of the auto-scout, while getting a little reward in return from the station. (+2 fuel, +3 missiles, +1 drone, +23 scrap)
Spoiler:
Image


50 scrap gets our second layer of shield up. This is crucial in minimalizing the amount damage we take from hostile ship encounters.

We spot a Store a jump away. Unfortunate, because 1) we don't have enough scrap/things to sell to really buy anything, and 2) it takes us off course straight into the advancing Rebel fleet.
Spoiler:
Image


...

Jump 4

Spoiler: Empty Bacon
Image


...

Jump 5

Pirate #2. As long as they don't hack our Shields, it's impossible for them to damage us (their weapons can drop 2 shield layers, and we have exactly 2 shield layers).
Spoiler:
Image


Annd oxygen hack :facepalm:
Spoiler:
Image


+2 fuel +16 scraps
Spoiler:
Image


Putting 15 scraps into Engines, it'll get our dodge chance up as well as increasing our FTL drive recharge rate.
Spoiler:
Image


...

Jump 6

They cannot damage us either, so we'd just need to take their piloting/engines offline and blow them up.
Spoiler:
Image


Like so;
Spoiler:
Image


+3 fuel +2 missiles +14 scraps
Spoiler:
Image


...

Jump 7

We find a Rebel Auto-Assault chilling out by a star.
Spoiler:
Image


As it's equipped with only beam weaponry, its dumbass once again cannot damage us.
Spoiler:
Image


A solar flare hits us, but we fortunately take no hull damage and a fire started somewhere where we can just vent to clear it.
Spoiler:
Image


...

Jump 8

Finally a choice to be made :D (the sensors pick up a refugee ship drifting through the system, it either doesn't appear to have detected us, or it's trying to avoid being noticed.)
Spoiler:
Image


Vote 2

1)Hail them. (Player recommendation)
2)Ignore the refugees.

Hail them.
The refugee vessel is relieved to hear from us. They offer a trade proposal of -2 fuel for +5 missiles, seems like a win-win deal to me.
Spoiler:
Image


...

Jump 9

The beacon appears to be around a ramshackled market within a junk yard, a deal of -3 missiles and +3 drones has been offered and accepted. I wonder if these guys knew the folks from the last jump.
Spoiler:
Image


...

Jump 10

We arrive at the exit.
Spoiler: Long-Range Bacon
Image


A pirate ship lays here to offer shady trades. A short converse later;
Spoiler:
Image


So Life Support's down and on fire, Helm's broken, Engine's damaged and both has a gap that lead to vaccum in them. Unfortunately for the opponent, our Weapon System is fully up and functional, and that's all you need in order to win a fight like this one.
Spoiler:
Image


Full salvo from both sides resulted in us taking 2 hull damage and having Sensors down and on fire, while the enemy took 2 hull damage and temporarily lost their Helm.
Spoiler:
Image


A follow up missile downs their Weapons before they can retaliate, and two more triple barrel barrages takes them out seconds before they could jump away.
Spoiler:
Image


+2 missiles +1 drone +18 scraps
Spoiler:
Image


The crew manages to repair the Life Support before oxygen dropped to deadly levels, and subsequent systems were tooled back to normal as well.
Spoiler:
Image


The rebels already ate up half of the Sector, so it's high time for us to leave.
Spoiler:
Image


...

Vote 3

Now, for the Sector Map. The options offered aren't exactly preferable...
Spoiler:

1)Uncharted Nebula (high)
2)Uncharted Nebula (low)

Reds are hostile sectors (rebel controlled, rock, mantis, abandoned, etc)

Greens are civillian sectors (civillian, engi, zotlan, etc)

We don't know exactly what those sectors are until we actually get next to them.

IMO you want red sectors earlier and green sectors late. Red sectors give you more scrap, green sectors give you more opportunity to spend it.

That's a really good take. I feel like the Kestrel in particular benefits from an early green sector if you don't get a couple of extra crew members in the starting one, tho :<

sinking funds into hacking now when we'll almost certainly see it at least once later feels like its gonna cripple us too much short term :(

saving scraps is all well and good but we've got the super super handy shield 2. unless we get a decent drop/event I'm not sure what we'd be saving for.
