If you can resurrect, then I'd go with the kinetic bombardment method and sift through the rubble for the corpse of your rescue target. Resurrection counts as saving, right?

 

Or you could go the distress beacon trap route and hope that they're of the same mind as Rick.

I don't think resurrection would work so well... we don't even know who we're supposed to be helping :lol: 

 

Thanks for all the suggestions and ideas ^_^ you guys have really helped. I'll let you know what we end up doing. Assuming we don't die :lol:

Oh please let us know what happens even if you do for.  The best learning experiences are the worst actual experience!

Space hamsters, the distant relatives of the murderously cute bunny rabbit.  Yes, that cute fluffy one in Monty Pythons and the holy grail that so wouldn't hurt a soul and oh gawds it's going for that guy's throat... 

 

Alternate suggestion is space ferrets, because once they get in somewhere I sure hope your wiring is sturdy, and encased, because those guys will chew on anything...  Or give it a soft tug, or scratch it, or...

Derelict and set your 'jammer adrift near the asteroid, wait for someone to come out to salvage it, and jump them? Then take their ship and fly it in with yours in tow?

 

I can dere-lick my own ship, thank you very much.

Andre Norton's Hosteen Storm used meerkats trained to do pretty much exactly that in The Beast Master. (Not to be confused with the movie of the same name.)

Decoy with a ship sized asteroid? dress it up like a threat (mount a weapon & self distruct on it?) and sling it into the system. when they go to investigate you approach from the sun-ward side and raid the base.

Our game got delayed a couple weeks because one of our members went to Washington DC. He got back last Saturday (he was so tired, it was funny), so we'll be playing again this weekend.

You could try the Riker Maneuver. It might end horribly, but that’s half the fun!

Well, I was apparently the only who tried to figure this out ahead of time, and none of the ideas I presented were used. Instead, the dumbest idea was used and two of our crew were killed. 

 

Then we were informed that oh yes, at least three of the ideas I presented would have worked.

 

After i expressed my frustration with the decision making process, I took out the rest of my frustration on the cat. He got brushed rather a lot.

Well, if your character wasn't killed, at least you'll be able to rub it in their faces for the rest of the campaign.

 

Which is its own reward. ::D:

I'm pretty sure Hubby is reluctant to kill my characters because of other people's stupidity. Now, if I do something stupid, that's different. Being married to the DM does have its benefits.

      So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings.  They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower.
       
      Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

       
      Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette.

       
      Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber.  I gently bent some of their limbs forward to ease the flatness a tad.

       

       
      One source said all thri-kreen were golden brown; another said they were earthy shades of red, yellow, and sometimes green.  I decided to paint the taller one red and the shorter one yellow.
       
      I mixed some dull, opaque colors using Iron Oxide Red and Yellow, each mixed with a greying-down blend of browns and white, and brushed them on thinly.
       
      As god is my witness, this thing is not so pink in real life.

       
      I painted this same yellow on both of the creatures' bases.

       
      Then I washed over them with some thinned-down Burnt Umber.
       

       

       
      To be continued!

      This was originally a birthday present last year, a fairly simple German resin ship kit for a medieval-style cog.
       
      Since I was playing a Githyanki in Dungeons and Dragons at the time, I modeled, painted, and sewed the vessel up into a more or less spelljammer, since named Black Moon's Bane from events in the game.
       
      There is a fairly detailed Work-in-Progress thread for this ship, if anyone has questions about materials or techniques. Or you can ask here; that's fine.
       

       

       

       
      A list of materials: Resin ship's hull model, wooden dowels, bamboo chopsticks, bamboo kitchen skewers, acrylic paint, brass wire, silk organza, silk taffeta, wooden furniture peg, jewelry findings (barrel clasps, jump rings), jewelers chain, metal necklace charms, glass seed beads, waxed linen bookbinder's thread, waxed linen carpet warp, silk buttonhole thread, cotton twine, metallic polyester yarn, nylon cord, screw eyes, 1/2" zinc fender washer, various glues
       
      The bowsprit (left) is a bamboo chopstick painted and wrapped with brass wire. The hatch on the deck (right) looks down over a forested landscape.

       
      The ship's rails are painted with (imaginary) red runes on black, then washed over thinly with silver metallic paint. From some angles the rails look silver and the runes are invisible. From others they show clearly.

       
      The ship's wheel (visible at the upper deck on the stern) is a charm bracelet charm with the hanging loop filed off. I nailed and glued it to the post (made from a furniture peg) so that it spins freely. It is mounted on a small fender washer so it can be moved around the ship. The runes around the door to belowdecks are imaginary.

       
      I may think of more stuff to say later. Right now I'm a little dazed.
