I cheated of course, by looking up the answer!

After Morn Hyland mostly blows up Starmaster, how many survivors are there on board?

Anyone know the answer to this one? Savor Dam, you are the current encyclopaedia on the Gap - it's somewhere between 2 and 6 Very Happy

Unless you're still out there Nathan??

I tend to firewall questions to which I don't recall the answer. Looking it up in the books is sort of cheating; even when I am tempted to do so, that impulse is tempered by the knowledge that giving the answer means being responsible for the subsequent question.

Yes, I can find this in The Real Story easily enough. My flash answer without looking is that Morn is the only suvivor (otherwise would not Angus have to either killed, taken, or abandoned any other survivor? Doesn't that affect the downstream story?), but it has been a very long time since my last TRS reread.

Am I being asked to go look? If so, am I immunized against having to come up with another poser?

My vague recollection was that there were a couple of other survivors but Angus killed them. If the answer is in fact 3 or 4, then technically Cord or myself would need to come up with the next question.

But yeah, in this situation, I don't think looking it up is a bad thing. I look answers up without guilt myself - it gives me a chance to relive a particular scene.

I'm too lazy to look them up.

But yes, didn't her father survive initially anyway and try to arrest / bluff Angus when he boarded? (Since he was IIRC blind as a result of the explosion/)

(Oh...I was going to guess 3 as well, Morn, her father, and 1 other, but I now see CH already did. Very Happy)

Ok, somebody look it up. Very Happy If it's 3 then Cord Hurn gets the dubious honour of asking the next question. Very Happy

According to the founder of this thread, Loremaster, the only rule to this game is "Whoever answers a question correctly gets to ask the next question."

I sometimes look up the answer, too.

In the fourth chapter of The Real Story was wrote:
Broke in half.

A blast like that: one of the drives must have blown up. Fire and metal sprayed without a sound into the belt.

Out of the center of the explosion, Starmaster toppled as if she were falling toward the surface of the asteroid.

Angus watched in complete astonishment as the ship crashed and died.

Instead of gutting Starmaster, the fire went out almost immediately. That implied-- He was too stupefied to realize what it implied. On automatic again, his hands fumbled across the console, activating short-range scanners, focusing cameras. He was trying to think. He should already be dead, fried in his g-seat. The UMCP ship had a straight shot at him. But he was still alive. Starmaster broke in half. The fire went out almost immediately.

That implied--

Oxygen.

The fire went out because it didn't get oxygen. But the ship was full of air. Angus understood fires in space: he new Starmaster should have burned longer than that. Some of her interior bulkheads must be holding. Parts of her retained structural integrity.

That, too, had significant implications. They eluded him, however. Bad air and the fundamental shock of his survival muddled his head. Ideas that should have been clear to him refused to come into focus.

Then he got it.

If parts of Starmaster retained integrity, then some of her people might have been protected or shielded. There might be survivors.

There were survivors. When he pulled his eyes down from the screen where his cameras reported what they could see, down to his scan displays and readouts, he discovered that his instruments registered life. Three or four people were still alive.

No, not three. Definitely four.

Good guess but not correct! The entity is a wholly owned subsidiary of the United Mining Companies.
