Chapter 13 - Act I - Part 1

Begin Log:
[06:30:31] GM: Go forth and do…things
[06:31:45] Lt. Jaron informs the others of Noble about new mission and lets them decide to stay or go. Plus asks a few others to join (aka old PCers)
[06:33:11] GM: For sake of expediance and randomness, roll a Mil Etiquette roll , one per Noble named NPC you want. you have a -25% to roll, if you make it they can tag a long, if not, command feels they better serve the UEEF where they are.
[06:35:22] GM: Rolling?
[06:35:30] Lt. Jaron: yes
[06:36:02] CWO3 Sarah: [1d100+25] => [22,25] = (47) 74%
[06:36:16] GM: She doesnt count Sarah
[06:36:31] GM: Not making it that heasy
[06:36:33] GM: easy
[06:37:14] Lt. Jaron: Versus 60; Vinnie [1d100] => [65] = (65), Summerwind [1d100] => [59] = (59), Hasegawa [1d100] => [25] = (25), Cersons [1d100] => [77] = (77), Rezall [1d100] => [77] = (77), McTabe [1d100] => [79] = (79), Shade [1d100] => [97] = (97), Alexander [1d100] => [68] = (68)
[06:37:28] Lt. Jaron: dang
[06:37:30] CWO3 Sarah: (( hm? That was for McTabe ))
[06:37:37] CWO3 Sarah: (( oh ))
[06:37:46] CWO3 Sarah: (( only wanted him to roll it. nm then ))
[06:38:24] GM: wow
[06:38:30] CWO3 Sarah: that's… just fail
[06:38:31] GM: Command just gave you the finger
[06:38:32] CWO3 Sarah: (( wow ))
[06:38:57] Lt. Jaron: well got anji and ryu
[06:39:08] GM: You can swap out Hasagawa for ONE NPC, I'm not in the bizness of playing a retired character.
[06:40:00] Lt. Jaron: Sarah, cersons?
[06:40:38] GM: Might be a good idea to look over the mini sheets fro them and figure on what you'll need the most
[06:41:34] GM: Maenwhile Summerwinds reaction to the TDY is … 'FFFfffffffffffffffcuk!'
[06:44:10] CWO3 Sarah: (( *gigglesnort* ))
[06:44:39] Lt. Jaron: cersons then unless sarah or Ay speak
[06:45:07] GM: Plays Jeprody theme…
[06:45:45] GM: Speak now of forever hold your peace.
[06:45:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( rar. ))
[06:46:36] CWO3 Sarah: (( suppose having the smart one and tech would be best, yeah. Not entirely sure, but… ))
[06:46:45] GM: but what?
[06:46:47] GM: spill it
[06:46:59] CWO3 Sarah: (( but nothing, I'm just thinking out loud. ))
[06:47:05] GM: well lets hear it
[06:47:16] GM: now is not the time to be silent.
[06:47:39] GM: you had a reason to not be entirely sure, what is it
[06:47:49] Lt. Jaron grumbles about the rejections
[06:49:19] Lt. Jaron checks database for those that have asked for transfers but havent got them
[06:49:36] Lt. Jaron looking for mechanics, medicals
[06:49:40] CWO3 Sarah: (( the 'but' is mostly a 'wtf do I know', sorry ))
[06:49:46] CWO3 Sarah: (( :) ))
[06:49:52] CWO3 Sarah: (( my usual disclaimer ))
[06:49:56] GM: all right, your call Sarah
[06:50:00] GM: Cersons it is
[06:50:02] Lt. Jaron: ((omg you dont know what to do? we are doomeedd!)
[06:50:34] Lt. Jaron: (want a comp op roll?)
[06:50:39] GM: nope
[06:51:13] GM: you do note an 'unattached' medical type…no one seems to want her either…
[06:51:40] Lt. Jaron thinks is she butt ugly or what
[06:52:00] Lt. Jaron goes visits her
[06:53:51] GM: Oh no, she's quite the catch, very attractive. She also has two dobermans watching over her (in the form of CVR-3 / VR-041 clad MP handlers.
[06:54:10] GM: One look at her tells you why of course.
[06:54:23] Lt. Jaron quirks a brow
[06:54:54] Lt. Jaron double checks her record again on datapad
[06:55:35] CWO3 Sarah: (( *gigglesnorts* ))
[06:55:41] GM: Yes, she is a Stage 5 Invid (although not like Sarah or Ariel, which I figure should be classed a Stage 6)
[06:57:16] Lt. Jaron sighs alittle "Well hell, I must be a magnet for crazy." he then approaches "The MPs for your protection or others?"
[06:58:11] Ahnhel: Oh them? They're around to make sure I stay out of trouble. I must say, I'm flattered, two big strapping men for, little, defenceless me.
[06:58:47] Ahnhel: So, you here for a physical? Or the view?
[06:59:24] Lt. Jaron: "Neither. I want you for my crew. Probably medical lead."
[06:59:50] Ahnhel: Oh my, you MUST be desperate.
[07:01:17] Lt. Jaron shrugs "Maybe but you were only one on list of possibilities that had medical training"
[07:01:31] Ahnhel sighs
[07:01:39] Marcus (enter): 19:01
[07:01:46] Ahnhel: Well, I suppose it beats this droll place.
[07:02:02] Lt. Jaron offers hand to her "Lt. Jaron Freeman"
[07:02:29] Lt. Jaron: (sorry Fairman; been long time)
[07:02:47] Ahnhel: Ahnhel. Charmed…I'm sure.
[07:03:31] Lt. Jaron: "Thank you. We'll be departing in a couple of days. So make any arranges you need to"
[07:03:55] GM: Sup Marcus
[07:05:19] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: I am like golden brown
[07:05:23] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: I almost look spanish for a change
[07:05:32] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: as opposed to looking like Mr.Data
[07:05:32] GM: Okay, you have a doc, and she comes with two guards…
[07:05:46] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: Awesome
[07:05:59] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: I ask her to do maintenance on my penis?
[07:06:18] GM: …
[07:06:19] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: The guards can watch, im not shy
[07:06:24] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[07:06:37] GM: Moving steadily along
[07:07:05] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: hey buddy, diont give me doctors unless you intend for me to use them - im sure by now he has a cyber penis amongst all the parts hes had blown off since I was last at game
[07:08:17] GM: Any other crew you think you might need?
[07:08:43] Lt. Jaron: Mechanic or engineer
[07:08:55] GM: Well ship would have it's own engineering staff…
[07:09:08] CWO3 Sarah: (( mecha mechanic mostly ))
[07:09:10] GM: so are you thinking something above and beyond that?
[07:09:11] CWO3 Sarah: (( I'd think ))
[07:09:12] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[07:09:37] GM: ship also maintains fighters so, it would have crew to deal with them…
[07:09:59] GM: maybe not to the level of a larger ship, but…well enough to fix moderate damage…
[07:10:15] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Ordinance Tech, Field Scientist, Tactical Analysis and CIC staff, Communications specialist)
[07:10:52] Sorry I don't know what /oc is!
[07:10:54] GM: We has the Commo, Tac and CIC should be the PC's
[07:10:56] CWO3 Sarah: (( oh, okay. ))
[07:11:08] GM: Since I'll give hints but the rest should be on yall
[07:11:40] CWO3 Sarah: (( someone science, unless Ahnhel can double it up… ))
[07:11:40] Lt. Jaron: Do we got someone who can operate folds?
[07:11:58] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( I wish I knew what was going on so I could be of more use )
[07:11:58] GM: / bites tongue
[07:12:13] GM: Carrie can you fill in the Marcus?
[07:12:19] GM: Por Favor?
[07:13:17] GM: Basic jist, next level stuff has gone down and the team is now being given a colonial ship to ferret out leads relating to dun dun dun, the book.
[07:15:11] Lt. Jaron checks for fold operator and a scientist/historian to add
[07:15:15] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Oh! We need an Archeologist and a Xeno-linguist )
[07:15:24] GM: Is happy
[07:16:08] GM: Fold operator comes with the ship, unless you want to replace that one…
[07:16:20] GM: Consider all basic functions of the ship to be covered…
[07:16:24] Lt. Jaron: ok
[07:16:41] Lt. Jaron moves onto the other search
[07:16:46] GM: be a nightmare for us to go thru all that…
[07:17:13] GM: I think you should all pay attention to Shadd's suggestion…
[07:17:31] CWO3 Sarah: (( yeah, archeology and xeno-linguist would be good, along with someone more common science to study and analyze anything we find outside those fields. ))
[07:17:38] GM: But thats just me, what do I know…
[07:17:41] Lt. Jaron: scientist, archeologist, linguist all the same
[07:17:58] GM: not really
[07:18:02] CWO3 Sarah: No, they aren't.
[07:18:06] CWO3 Sarah: +ooc wtf?!
[07:18:08] Lt. Jaron: shhh
[07:18:09] CWO3 Sarah: (( wtf?! ))
[07:18:16] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Oh I also think i need to be promoted to Admiral for this mission.. yep… Admiral… thats what I think )
[07:18:39] Lt. Jaron gets specific; historian, linguist
[07:18:55] GM: Sorry Shadd, they lost the paperwork…you know how the military is…
[07:19:06] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Damn them )
[07:19:20] CWO3 Sarah: (( xenolinguist, archeologist. A book historian won'tbe as useful, need someone who can analyze artifacts ))
[07:19:31] GM: I agree Jaron, now, who to get?
[07:19:56] GM: I can give hints but will need rolls, or yall have logs you can look over.
[07:20:09] GM: Thats a hint right there, ^_^
[07:20:16] GM: freebie
[07:20:38] GM: Cuase I did make mention in passing about something …that might be usefull to you now
[07:20:56] James (enter): 19:20
[07:21:02] GM: Herro james
[07:21:08] GM: joo SOO late
[07:21:35] 2LT Komillia: ((I blame the family.))
[07:22:11] 2LT Komillia: ((last minute party/get together and they wouldn't let me leave despite me being clearly bored out of my mind.))
[07:22:21] CWO3 Sarah: (( ugh ))
[07:22:53] Lt. Jaron: ok arch first
[07:23:54] GM: okay
[07:24:07] 2LT Komillia: ((We doing rolls?))
[07:24:13] GM: if you want to
[07:24:20] GM: yall will kick yourself later
[07:24:34] CWO3 Sarah: [1d30] => [30] = (30) vs. … 18 IQ, (to see if I know anything)
[07:24:39] CWO3 Sarah: (( oh for the love of… ))
[07:24:50] GM: Did you leave your iorn on…I think you did…
[07:25:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( *shushes up for the night* ))
[07:25:10] 2LT Komillia: [1d30] => [27] = (27) vs 15 IQ
[07:25:18] GM: You know you left yours on.
[07:25:19] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d30] => [4] = (4) vs 14 IQ
[07:25:27] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Are we forgetting Komi's crash helmet and saftey pads? )
[07:25:36] Lt. Jaron: [1d20] => [3] = (3) vs 12 (dont even know what Im rollin for)
[07:25:39] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Oh and her oven mitts )
[07:25:41] GM: Kain sorry, no help since you werent around to get the information everyone else is rolling for.
[07:25:53] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((nah they gave her built-in airbags a boost))
[07:26:08] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( She has air inflatable boobies now? NICE! )
[07:26:29] GM: But Jaron remembers a snarky genius that happens to be boiking Komi, mention something about an Archeologust, round about the time you went to him to analyze the book…
[07:26:30] Lt. Jaron works on gettin archeologist and linguist; maybe astrophysitist too.
[07:26:39] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( Carter? ))
[07:26:48] GM: We have a winner!
[07:26:52] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[07:27:01] GM: Thank you for playing!
[07:27:23] Lt. Jaron checks on Carter then, wished his XO told him sooner ;)
[07:27:47] GM: Do roll a intell roll for diss
[07:29:15] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( sorry if I seem flaky, everyones pulling at me for attention cause its my sunday off, but im here to play )
[07:29:47] GM: (hey, you pointed them in the right direction in 5 minutes flat, no bitching from me)
[07:29:59] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d100] => [28] = (28) vs 63 Intell ((not that I think it will count…))
[07:30:02] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] => [14] = (14) vs 73
[07:30:20] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( wow ))
[07:30:23] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( :D ))
[07:31:48] GM: Jaron you are able to manuver thru the right channels and find Carter where the genius last said he was, a frontier world, on a dig, some 500 or so light years from here.
[07:33:33] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( We should send a small fold capable ship for him instead of the full compliment )
[07:34:09] Lt. Jaron tries to send him a message to see if he is interest in the journey and give an estimate day
[07:34:49] GM: No way to contact him form here, he is one one of those, ship drops you off, then picks you back up in a month or three.
[07:35:09] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( A Daniel Jackson )
[07:35:15] Lt. Jaron sends message to the others about first trip out to pick up our scientist.
[07:35:19] CWO3 Sarah: (( *gigglesnort* ))
[07:35:47] Lt. Jaron contacts others "Anyone else we should try to get?"
[07:35:58] Mst.Sgt. Shadd suggest sending a small ship to get him as opposed to rousing suspicion about their objective.
[07:36:16] GM: GM caveat, your ship will be the first one avaialble, funny how that works out
[07:36:32] GM: But xp for a good call regardless Shadd
[07:37:29] Mst.Sgt. Shadd siuggest then they be less obvious about it - take a slightly longer route getting out there, then jump in behind a moon or something so they ship isnt obvious, then send a Legios to fetch him.
[07:37:51] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((We get a doc, or is that "Helloooo, Nurse." just window dressing?))
[07:38:04] GM: She's a Doc…
[07:38:32] You must be a GM to use this feature
[07:38:46] Mst.Sgt. Shadd ais a polygamist, gets his wife, a nurse, assigned to the ship so they can tie up the doctor and play reindeer games with her.
[07:39:09] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: (Actually - hes doing to try to get his wife assigned to the ship anyway )
[07:39:23] GM: Okay so any last crew you think you need? I'm assuming this process you are going thru is taking a few days etc, Your ship will arrive soon
[07:39:28] Lt. Jaron: (we will have shuttles right?)
[07:39:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( two shuttlepods ))
[07:39:35] GM: Correct, Two Rabbits
[07:40:01] GM: Usagi 1 and Usagi 2
[07:40:14] CWO3 Sarah: (( hee hee hee ))
[07:40:19] Lt. Jaron: group troopers, onboard security?
[07:40:36] GM: ground troops, no
[07:40:40] GM: well, you
[07:41:06] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((As long as the ship isn't named the Tsukino…))
[07:41:14] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Did his wife get assigned to the crew? We might also need one VERY important crew personal member… an oficially sanctioned salvage and scouring expert, certified reliable by the military high command )
[07:41:42] CWO3 Sarah: (( should think about what mecha we'll need to pack. That one of Sarah's in the bottom of the Yuki, for one probably… but others… well, need something untracable. :p :) So possibly wrecks and an /ace/ mechanic to fix them into working equipment. ))
[07:41:52] GM: onboard security, you, the two guards that come with the doc, which prolly ownt leave medical, and a strike team of 15 colonial marines (sigh) that act as boarders (this ship IS after all a glorified Cutter)
[07:41:59] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Mecha that are easily repaired or replaced )
[07:42:30] CWO3 Sarah: (( need trade goods obviously, at least to some extent… ))
[07:42:52] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Thats why we brng the cheap mecha - maybe a VF-1 ror 4 if we can find some )
[07:43:03] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((and mecha that are close enough to our training that we don't get stuck on "Basic" MECTs with them.))
[07:43:14] CWO3 Sarah: (( 4's are colonial, and they're not cheap for the colonies, probably :p :) ))
[07:43:25] Lt. Jaron: Alright, would like atleast a squad of infantry; is possible
[07:43:28] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Oh hi James. Remember - Agent Smith is watch you. )
[07:43:30] Lt. Jaron: if
[07:43:37] GM: I dont think you have room for them
[07:43:50] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( 5 troopers? How about 4 and Shadd )
[07:43:59] GM: unless you assign one of your MCM's to teh job
[07:44:05] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( They can hot bunk since he'll be with his wife, lol )
[07:44:06] GM: Well Shadd will be there
[07:44:55] Lt. Jaron: Yes, about the modules….final decision on them?
[07:45:03] GM: up to yall
[07:45:10] CWO3 Sarah: (( if we don't have much room for medical types, the two guards will probably need to be drafted as nurses sometimes as well ))
[07:45:18] GM: Like fun
[07:45:23] GM: I dont think so
[07:45:26] Lt. Jaron: (hehe)
[07:45:41] GM: I'm even tempted to name on of her dobermans Siato
[07:46:11] GM: tempted…
[07:46:27] GM: so modules
[07:46:39] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Dont you dare )
[07:46:46] GM: (lol)
[07:46:51] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Or a certain sniper might find her in his crosshairs )
[07:47:09] Lt. Jaron: Machine shop; to repair and possibly make ammo and small gear. Can we all agree on that one?
[07:47:17] CWO3 Sarah: (( Siato? ))
[07:47:22] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Actually - 3 troopers, Shadd and his wife - shes a combat medic/nurse )
[07:47:26] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( A paramedic really )
[07:47:38] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( I made her as a backup character in case you got shadd killed, lol )
[07:47:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( yeah. okay. the machine shop one is pretty obvbious… ))
[07:48:04] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((yeahm, and the astrogation would be good too.))
[07:48:31] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( and the ship should already have a machine shop onboard, otherwise all we need to do is have bullet casting machiens added to it )
[07:48:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( would astrogation be part of science with the computer and stuff? ))
[07:48:50] GM: Ship does, this module would expand on it's capabilities
[07:49:01] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( yes it would - it would be included in the command crew for the ship )
[07:49:19] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Uh not to mention you are all mecha pilots with space navigation *eyeroll* )
[07:49:36] GM: astrogation module would add a larger battery or sensors, and analysis gear to the exsisting systems aboard ship
[07:49:43] GM: or = of
[07:49:58] CWO3 Sarah: (( yeah ))
[07:49:59] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( In would also increase our overhead and give them 1 more system to damage in combat )
[07:50:01] GM: Which for this ship class, as previously mentioned are, formidable
[07:50:05] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((actually Kain is Spec Ops, and he DOESN'T have Space Nav…))
[07:50:21] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Komi and Shadd both do )
[07:50:25] Lt. Jaron: (I dont have space nav either :) )
[07:50:27] GM: and Sarah
[07:50:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( if we already have formidabble systems, then science probably should be good. ))
[07:50:34] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( And so should Chris's girly, if shes coming with )
[07:50:59] GM: no, she actually doesnt, she relies on the mother ship for that since, hey, Alphas dont go into fold so why would I need to know that stuff…
[07:51:09] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Can I have a torture chamber added? Just big enough to throw James in to when he doesnt say hello back to me )
[07:51:12] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((an enhanced quick strike module…))
[07:51:20] CWO3 Sarah: (( I do, Ay does… ))
[07:51:29] GM: and what would exactly be included in a quick strike module…
[07:52:04] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( We dont need it - the more shit you stick on the ship, the more the repair costs and maintenance requirements go up. Ships dont just upkeep themselves, you know )
[07:52:39] CWO3 Sarah: (( the modular setup has 4 slots. ))
[07:52:52] GM: Marcus, did carrie link you the pics of teh ship you will be using?
[07:52:55] CWO3 Sarah: (( we're expected to put things in all 4, just evaluating what we need, for usefulness. ))
[07:53:28] CWO3 Sarah: (( will do so now ))
[07:53:33] GM: and Marcus the 4 MCM's are things to add to the ships capabilities, in effect, it is you customizing the ship, to add your own flavor…
[07:53:51] GM: rather then me just sticking you with something stock
[07:54:49] GM: now, I'm not saying you have to choose ALL your MCM's now…
[07:54:55] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Right but its still increasing the maintenance, is it not? )
[07:54:55] GM: they are after all Plug and Play
[07:55:00] GM: not really
[07:55:10] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Not really - or no, please be precise )
[07:55:17] GM: plus that stuff isn't really your chracters rpoblem, unless you want to reroll crewmen
[07:55:39] CWO3 Sarah: (( no. Because there will be MCMs, it's just a matter of ones we want, or stock crappy ones ))
[07:56:40] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Alright, fair enough: It'd say an extended cargo bay, the machienshop upgrade, some kind of advanced stealth suite, and upgraded shields or defensive measures )
[07:56:44] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Thats just IMO )
[07:57:10] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( THAT or instead of the machineship upgrade, an additional troop/mecha bay )
[07:57:24] GM: WIP ship vitals are in the forums, but it has a PPB array, as well as 30 PD guns
[07:57:26] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Er not the machineshop, I mean the defensive suite )
[07:57:40] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((I'd drop the stealth in favor of expanded medical, with how often people get hurt in this game.))
[07:57:48] GM: kekeke
[07:57:54] GM: /shifty eyes
[07:58:10] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Thats cause you are dumb - ke ke ke ke ke )
[07:58:11] GM: plus stealth in space…sci fi myth
[07:58:16] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((the modules are standard shipping container size, they aren't bit.))
[07:58:33] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Thats not true, non-stealth in space is a sci fi myth )
[07:58:34] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((big, 20x8.5x9.5 foot.))
[07:59:12] GM: anyhow, you have a machine shop MCM, any clue as to who will use it?
[07:59:17] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Stop doing dumb shit and getting your characters all shot up, and we wont need a medical suite. We will just need one of those people recyclers from Macross:F )
[07:59:21] GM: I have my thoughts…
[07:59:22] Lt. Jaron signs off on extra cargo for supplies, machine shop, medical modules. (do we have a lab for our archeologist?)
[07:59:47] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((er, what have you been smoking Marcus? Stealth in Space is simply not possible. The HEAT given off by a space ship alone will give it away.))
[08:00:15] GM: anyhow, thats not a topic for right now okay
[08:00:21] GM: or at least not in here
[08:00:31] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( yeah but finding a single IR hot radiating target in the middle of a radiation of nothingness isnt like seeing a penny at your feet on the ground. This is basic science )
[08:00:50] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( AND if you have an ability to damp the IR emissions, then its basically stealth )
[08:00:54] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( So - boo, ya )
[08:00:59] GM: again, I'd really rather not take up game time on this debate
[08:01:11] GM: so lets move on
[08:01:14] CWO3 Sarah: (( *tries another IQ roll or su9ch, for the machine shop* ))
[08:01:14] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Well you asked, I said it was IMO )
[08:01:19] CWO3 Sarah: [1d30] => [20] = (20)
[08:01:22] CWO3 Sarah: (( vs. 18. fail ))
[08:01:31] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( And Shadd would use the machine shop )
[08:01:45] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( He's an armourer, weapons engineer, and weapons guy after all )
[08:01:54] GM: right on
[08:03:51] Lt. Jaron signs off on the last module
[08:03:52] GM: okay, modules ahve been decided on
[08:03:53] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( He'd use his grunts in the shop and the cargo bay, while his wife is assistant nurse and partial field medic )
[08:04:25] GM: okay then
[08:04:50] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Its like starship troopers "Everyone on board wears many hats. I had the dubious luxury of being assistant armourer, working on the powersuits during the day, and assiatnt chaplain under "insert guys name here" on the weekns" )
[08:05:11] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh heh ))
[08:05:12] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((gr… AFK))
[08:05:13] GM: a day later the ship, and 5 more just like it defold into Karberra space
[08:06:28] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( I virus bomb Karberra in the name of the Emperor )
[08:06:34] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Oh wait… wrong game )
[08:06:34] GM: The ship you've been alocated the ADS Vigilance, is told to break formation and report to docking bay whatever.
[08:06:47] CWO3 Sarah: (( docking bay 94? ))
[08:06:55] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:06:59] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( how about docking bay 69? )
[08:07:03] GM: sure, why not…watch out for droids…
[08:07:31] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( I steal one for a project I am working on )
[08:07:34] GM: Kain, you are told to report to this bay for reasignement
[08:08:34] GM: You being part of the ADF recognize the Corsair Class vessel as 'home made' and at this point think, fantastic, I'm on patrol duty over Karberra…
[08:09:45] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((back))
[08:09:48] CWO3 Sarah: (( wb ))
[08:09:50] GM: read up
[08:10:14] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( brb )
[08:10:19] GM: The rest of you are already on hand, as you have known about the ships arrival for days now
[08:10:25] 2LT Kain Crokett reports to the bay as ordered.
[08:10:55] Lt. Jaron goes over list of mechas and weapons.
[08:11:08] GM: Ishida is there as well since she has no current duties (medical leave) and figures might as well hang out with Sarah.
[08:11:12] 2LT Kain Crokett: So I'm on partol near Karberra, could have pulled a worse duty…
[08:11:40] GM: It is then that Kain notices a heap of UEEF crawling all over the ship, loading this and that…
[08:12:52] 2LT Kain Crokett walks up to the UEEF personnel.
[08:13:07] GM: pick which or roll randomly
[08:13:15] 2LT Kain Crokett: You guys transfering to the Colonial Defense Forces or is this a joint assignment…
[08:13:17] GM: roll a pec as well
[08:14:02] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d20+1] => [17,1] = (18) Perc [1d5] => [5] = (5) ((1 Jaron, 2 Shadd, 3 Sarah, 4 Ay, 5 Komi))
[08:14:07] CWO3 Sarah stays next to Suki.
[08:14:51] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( bak )
[08:15:01] GM: You walk up to a zent female you've never seen before, your perc however you not a zent female you have seen, miss hypno butt, a short raspberry blonde, that rescued you and a slightly taller asien woman that you recognize from your Intelligance seminars.
[08:15:39] GM: as in the 'briefing officer'
[08:15:54] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( He dpesmt recognize Flint from GI Joe? )
[08:16:01] GM: not at all
[08:16:10] Lt. Jaron makes sure to have severa; m-90's aboard and ammo. Wondering is he can a legionnair armor and rifle
[08:16:18] 2LT Kain Crokett: You guys again? For the love of God, what'd I do to deserve this…
[08:16:37] GM: Komi, some Colonial punk just dissed you
[08:16:55] 2LT Komillia: Pardon? I don't believe we've met.
[08:17:06] CWO3 Sarah has made sure her own M90Cs are packed, and that there's ammo forthem, as well.
[08:17:10] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Doesnt even see me standing there? I dont get the brush off "And some old looking soldier with a berette on his head with a wife 20 years younger then he is )
[08:17:13] 2LT Kain Crokett: Us? No. The people you work with, yes.
[08:17:34] GM: You blend in Shadd, your just that good.
[08:17:47] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( awesome )
[08:17:56] CWO3 Sarah: (( asides, the medic is there as well, with her two guards ))
[08:18:02] Lt. Jaron is standing there like in his own world going over lists
[08:18:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( but that's probably a little intimidating to be walking up to. ))
[08:18:07] 2LT Kain Crokett wears colonial spec ops uniform with all the appropriate adornments.
[08:18:40] 2LT Komillia: Take it you didn't have a high opinion of my squadmates then.
[08:19:00] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( YAY! Shadd finally has a best friend! )
[08:19:10] 2LT Kain Crokett: Well, to be honest some of it was tainted by the flying bricks and the losing of my Lightning III.
[08:19:12] CWO3 Sarah: (( rofl ))
[08:19:38] GM: Sarah yes, and you recognize her, oh yes…you do,
[08:19:39] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( no more lone nights boffing his wife and wishing he had a male friend to make fun of the unit with! )
[08:20:02] CWO3 Sarah: (( come to think of it, how they gonna get Sarah's mech aboard? Disguised in a crate or cardboard box or something. ))
[08:20:08] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( *wipes a tear from his eye - a tear of joy* )
[08:20:09] CWO3 Sarah: (( ? or some other way ))
[08:20:14] 2LT Komillia: It's not all bad. Plenty of eye candy if nothing else.
[08:20:31] GM: No, you have it on the deck below the ship's berth, you will self deploy it.
[08:20:51] 2LT Kain Crokett: I get enough eye candy at Edean bars…
[08:21:26] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((AS much as I enjoy talking to myself…))
[08:21:43] CWO3 Sarah blinks as she sees her sister there, raising her eyebrows just slightly.
[08:21:56] 2LT Kain Crokett: So what's our mission Miss UEEF?
[08:22:48] Ahnhel: Oh ho ho! Little Seren. It's been so long. You never write, you dont even call.
[08:22:57] 2LT Komillia: Oh, a search and recover. We'll tell you the full details once we're underway.
[08:23:38] Ahnhel pauses at seeing Ishida and narrows her eyes as her left cheek twitches.
[08:23:58] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) smirks. "Why, hello again. Doctor."
[08:24:15] CWO3 Sarah rolls her eyes just a little bit and shakes her head. "It hasn't been /that/ long this time. Coming along for the trip? …" She pauses and blinks at the reaction to Suki.
[08:24:37] Lt. Jaron puts datapad away and turns around to see all that have gather.
[08:24:48] 2LT Kain Crokett: Yeah, somehow I think I got picked for my training, at least tell me the bridge bunnies are Colonial. The last time I had a UEEF directing me to land, I nearly wiped out a Destroid parked in my landing zone…
[08:24:55] Ahnhel: Harumph, it seems so.
[08:25:12] Mst.Sgt. Shadd Salutes the new 2nd LT. "Sir!" and stands at attention.
[08:25:40] GM: 1st
[08:25:47] GM: No butter bars in sight
[08:25:55] 2LT Kain Crokett comes to a crisp salute, "At ease Sergeatn."
[08:25:57] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( His name tag says 2nd )
[08:26:12] GM: well then I goofed and havent updated it, Jaron is a 1LT
[08:26:23] GM: Kain is a 2LT yes sorry
[08:26:27] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Well then update it! *SLAP* )
[08:26:28] GM: I'll hush now
[08:26:43] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Make a fool outta me! I dont need your help looking as stupid as I already look! )
[08:26:50] GM: /slinks off like a trapdoor spider, waiting to pounce
[08:27:28] 2LT Kain Crokett: What is it I can do for you Sergeant?
[08:27:33] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Aw shit… more spiders… i thought we had a treaty. *gets the ground penitraiting radar and the flame thrower crew with the spider proof boots and leggings* )
[08:27:38] GM: The ship takes on the MCM's over the next few minutes…
[08:28:08] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) looks at Sarah. "I don't envy you."
[08:28:20] Mst.Sgt. Shadd comes to ease and shakes his head. "Nothing Sir. But you do deserve the proper salute and respect… " leans in and says below his breath '…plus it makes the others look bad."
[08:29:03] CWO3 Sarah laughs a little at the reaction to coming along. "What, rather be stuck somewhere boring? Or are we too big of loonies for you?" She glances to Suki. "I know. It's going to be nuts. But if we're lucky…" She sighs. "Just hope it's not a wild goose chase."
[08:29:39] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) declines to rply, and just stands there, watching.
[08:30:07] 2LT Kain Crokett: They're UEEF officers, it ain't hard to do. Sorry, sometimes I let the rivalry get the better of me.
[08:30:42] CWO3 Sarah blinks at the lack of reply, looking down slightly.
[08:30:46] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) walks aboard the ship to look around.
[08:30:56] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: "Understood, sir." - is UEMC, so totally understands the rivalry.
[08:31:30] GM: A deck hand walks up to Jaron
[08:31:58] UEF CPO: Sir, you decide on your mecha compliment, we're alsmot done offloading the colonial ships.
[08:32:19] 2LT Kain Crokett: Now, I'm going to report to the commander in charge. Would you please direct me to him?
[08:32:55] Lt. Jaron nods "Yes" and gives him list (cyclone, alpha, devastor is there is room)
[08:33:36] GM: give me numbers and I'll let you know whats feasible (sans cyclone, you box them up and you have no issues…)
[08:33:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( I think he meant for group, not just you yourself :p lol ))
[08:33:57] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[08:33:58] Lt. Jaron: (everyone speak up now about watns)
[08:34:04] GM: ((this is also true))
[08:34:36] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( watns? )
[08:34:41] Lt. Jaron: (wants)
[08:35:15] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( His Legios and his Cyclone )
[08:35:21] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((VF-4, however, almost all of his training is colonial machines. so an Alpha probably would be a bad idea…))
[08:35:28] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( With his standard missile split )
[08:35:46] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( I'd have said a VF-1S )
[08:35:53] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Or a VF-1SS )
[08:36:02] 2LT Komillia: ((Advanced Bioroid Interceptor, and a Devastator…)))
[08:36:33] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((12 LRMS, built in…))
[08:37:13] GM: Komi, from here on (after some reading) if you wish to use a traditional Bioroid cockpit you will have to have cybernetic relays implanted, othewise, you will beusig a more 'traditional' analog
[08:37:31] GM: unless you already have the implants…
[08:37:41] GM: your call
[08:37:59] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((I'll have the implants thank you, probably already built in…))
[08:38:00] CWO3 Sarah: (( I'd love to have a full Legios, but if only one, I suppose I should probably take a Beta for fire support. Ideally a Devo and/or 057… :p :) If we can get any of it unmarked. Probably just the beta, and move her own aboard. But that's me. I'm nuts. ))
[08:38:06] GM: kk
[08:39:09] GM: Ay? Jaron?
[08:39:25] Lt. Jaron: (cyclone, alpha, devastor if room)
[08:39:34] GM: Alpha… okay
[08:40:04] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( you dont need 2 cylones )
[08:40:14] GM: with this group, they should have 5
[08:40:35] GM: did I say that out loud…
[08:40:57] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Go thru them that fast, huh? Well its time to learn to economize, folks )
[08:41:07] GM: oh my god! do they ever
[08:41:08] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((For this group, you could probably give them a CARRIER full of mecha, and they would run out in 10-15 sessions.))
[08:41:12] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( Legios with the ammo based weapons (same ammo based weapons for Sarah for note, the GPU 9's) Devo, and 057, or whatever close she can get. ))
[08:41:24] GM: Carrie here has already blown thru 7 beta's
[08:41:25] Lt. Jaron: (hehe reason for extra supplies)
[08:41:44] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( two GPU-9s if possible under the wings for Sarah and Ay if they get Legios'. If no legios for Ay, just an Alpha. ))
[08:41:51] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Shes Carrie though )
[08:42:21] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( anyway. ))
[08:44:34] GM: Okay so far, Kain VF-4, Shadd Legioss, Ay Legioss, Sarah Legioss/OVerlord, Jaron Alpha, Komi Interceptor.
[08:44:41] CWO3 Sarah looks to Jaron. "Hmm. We need an intel person, to interpret stuff? If the others would agree to it, I'd suggest one who's on medical leave right now…" She looks towards the ship.
[08:44:46] GM: have I missed anything
[08:44:51] CWO3 Sarah: (( er? Thought it was a commanmd battloid, not an overlord ))
[08:44:56] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:45:08] CWO3 Sarah: (( overlords are too cool for Sarah to get assigned on ever ))
[08:45:08] GM: yes yes yes
[08:45:38] GM: mah bad
[08:45:42] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:45:48] Lt. Jaron smiles at Sarah "Maybe"
[08:46:05] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((didn't Seren get one? or HG Sarah?))
[08:46:10] Col. Satori walks up behind Jaron
08:46:24] CWO3 Sarah: (( that was HG Seren ))
[08:46:35] Col. Satori: So, have you decided on a name for this vessel, or shall we keep it with it's current registry?
[08:47:16] Cpl Summerwind see's the Colonal only after she speaks.
[08:47:19] Lt. Jaron: "Im fine with what it is but lets see if the others wish to chnage"
[08:47:23] Lt. Jaron waves all over
[08:47:27] Cpl Summerwind: Area! ATTN HUT!
[08:47:35] Cpl Summerwind: Officer on DECK!
[08:48:06] Cpl Summerwind slautes the Full Bird Colonel.
[08:48:09] CWO3 Sarah straightens to attention at the announcement from the corporal, with a slight 'eep'.
[08:48:34] 2Lt. Aylanea comes to proper attention and everything as well, hurriedly.
[08:48:35] 2LT Kain Crokett goes to attention and salutes.
[08:48:48] Mst.Sgt. Shadd snaps back to attention and salutes
[08:48:48] 2LT Komillia hurredly makes a salute.
[08:49:23] GM: Jaron? Are going to render honors to the officer?
[08:49:26] 2Lt. Aylanea and Sarah salute as well. Yup.
[08:50:36] Lt. Jaron gives a salute
[08:50:47] Col. Satori returns the salutes. "As you were."
[08:51:06] Col. Satori then turns back to Jaron.
[08:51:11] Col. Satori: Have everything you need?
[08:51:14] 2LT Komillia returns to her tasks.
[08:52:02] Lt. Jaron: "I hope, going over the last right now"
[08:52:02] CWO3 Sarah hmms, glancing to Jaron a bit.
[08:52:23] UEF CPO walks up to Sarah
[08:52:36] UEF CPO: Chief, space has been cleared, you can load your…battloid any time.
[08:53:11] GM: Sarah, you note that the battloid has been repainted in UEEF colors.
[08:53:28] GM: As well as sporting UEEF herldry
[08:54:18] 2LT Kain Crokett looks around to see what all mecha are coming aboard. [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9) perc
[08:55:05] GM: Hard not to notice, as half the damn bay finds a window as that thing lifts off, roll a piloting and dont fuck up Sarah, cuase EVERYONE is watching
[08:55:16] CWO3 Sarah: (( arfg ))
[08:55:23] CWO3 Sarah: (( yes, I'm TYPING right now ))
[08:55:25] GM: arfg indeed
[08:55:27] CWO3 Sarah: (( does that not show to anyone? ))
[08:55:34] GM: no it really doesnt
[08:55:51] 2LT Kain Crokett: Well, we finally got some Invid on our side. I guess Kusanagi owes me 200 credits…
[08:55:51] GM: least not on my end…
[08:56:02] CWO3 Sarah: "I was just suggesting to the Lt. that an Intel specialist might be helpful, since there's one on medical leave who knows the situation." She glances to Jaron and Komi, then the CPO. "Thanks. I'll get it aboard quick."
[08:56:04] CWO3 Sarah: (( great. ))
[08:56:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( grr ))
[08:56:10] Ahnhel slinks up behind the rustic.
[08:56:13] CWO3 Sarah: (( gthat was on the end of the other thing. ))
[08:56:23] Ahnhel: Oh, I think I'll have to give you a FULl physical…
[08:56:42] 2LT Kain Crokett: Looking forward to it Doc.
[08:56:48] CWO3 Sarah hurries over to get it loaded in the quickest manner possible.
[08:57:00] Ahnhel snaps her teeth at Kain with a creepy grin.
[08:57:31] CWO3 Sarah blinks over on her way. *Down girl.* She snickers as she climbs in, then.
[08:57:39] CWO3 Sarah: (( roll pilot to see if I remember? lol ))
[08:57:53] GM: Yes and junk
[08:58:33] CWO3 Sarah: [1d100] => [34] = (34) vs 98+% (did we ever decide for percentages over 100 or anything? It's listed at 107)
[08:58:56] GM: You are able to, with a little flourish, get the Battloid aboard with no issues.
[08:59:15] CWO3 Sarah parks it, hops back out, and hurries back out to the others.
[08:59:30] GM: Those that have spent their life fighting the invid feel a bit creeped out, but the sight is nonetheless impressive.
[09:00:13] Col. Satori looks at Jaron after the Invid mecha is aboard.
[09:00:30] Col. Satori: Chief makes a point. Any thoughts?
[09:00:51] 2LT Kain Crokett notes that most colonials probably HAVEN'T been fighting Invid non-stop.
[09:01:02] CWO3 Sarah: (( just the UEEF types ))
[09:01:03] Lt. Jaron comments to Satori "If there is one ready and willing, I have no problem with it."
[09:01:17] GM: Those that =/= everyone
[09:01:24] CWO3 Sarah: (( only one is on medical leave and knows the situation ;p ))
[09:02:49] GM: I'll let yall debate that IC, otherwise the refit and loading goes as planned. The Captian of the ship and the dock master agree that all whould be ready for an 0500 departure the next morning.
[09:03:27] CWO3 Sarah: (( lemme know how quick I can get back to the convo. hehe ))
[09:03:36] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((what are we debating, I seemed to missed it.))
[09:03:46] GM: Your intell wonk
[09:04:05] GM: Kain recognizes her, as stated previously, etc etc
[09:04:11] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( Sarah suggested an intel type who's on medical leave and already knows situation ;) ))
[09:04:19] GM: ((Basically I'm not giving you the cluebat unless you all agree))
[09:04:32] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: ( Brb - gotta run on a pet food related emergency )
[09:04:45] GM: Eww?
[09:04:49] Mst.Sgt. Shadd: Disconnecting from server…
[09:04:49] Marcus (exit): 21:04
[09:05:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[09:05:18] GM: I'll just assume that Shadd and his wiafu scurry on abaord and 'christen' their new bunk
[09:05:20] CWO3 Sarah: (( well, depending on whether they're needing some, or the dog or cat is puking it up… ))
[09:05:21] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[09:06:10] 2LT Komillia: Hey Suki, you tagging along? We could probably use the extra hands. I know Sarah would.
[09:06:43] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) frowns at the informal address.
[09:07:10] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I have duities within Battalion.
[09:07:49] Lt. Jaron quirks a brow at the comment "Sarah suggested otherwise"
[09:07:56] CWO3 Sarah: (( be /right/ back ))
[09:08:12] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Really? How so?
[09:08:28] CWO3 Sarah: (( lemme know when I can get back to the convo, anyway. ))
[09:08:41] GM: after next comment
[09:08:50] CWO3 Sarah: (( kk ))
[09:09:57] Lt. Jaron: "That we could get an intel officer that happened to be on leave at the moment"
[09:10:06] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Medical leave.
[09:10:15] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): After which i return to duty.
[09:11:56] Lt. Jaron nods "She was hoping that you would join"
[09:12:27] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): Her hopes and the needs of the UEEF don't always coincide.
[09:12:54] CWO3 Sarah walks back up to the group quietly, glancing between them. "And how long did they say you should be on medical leave for, that you declined as being too long, ma'am?" She also glances to see of the Colonel is still about.
[09:12:57] Col. Satori listens.
[09:13:02] Lt. Jaron smiles "Maybe so but love sometimes is more powerful than that"
[09:13:31] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) glowers at Sarah.
[09:13:45] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5): I would have you keep private matters said in confidance as just that. Chief.
[09:14:20] Col. Satori watches in rapt fascination.
[09:14:46] 2LT Komillia: And I think I just stirred up a hornets nest…
[09:15:15] 2LT Kain Crokett just watches and tries not to laugh at the goings on.
[09:15:16] CWO3 Sarah: (( I didn't recall she'd said that to Sarah, maybe I'm spazzing out ))
[09:15:54] GM: Regardless
[09:16:17] GM: What she says in private..well, it's private..
[09:16:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( I don't recall that she said that in private either, I mean ))
[09:16:46] GM: moving on
[09:17:23] CWO3 Sarah: (( it was intended to be a GUESS since I didn't recall it, otherwise line is withdrawn. ))
[09:19:33] CWO3 Sarah tries not to flinch at the claim of that as a 'private' matter. "With all respect, /ma'am/, it it is not a private matter completely. It was said by an Expedition doctor, and thusly was on a report somewhere when your superiors requested one. One which, I'm quite certain, the Colonel has access to, if she has not indeed already seen."
[09:21:13] Lt. Jaron looks to Komillia the comment about the nest "You have a tendency to do that"
[09:22:25] 2LT Kain Crokett: Just a blunt stick after all.
[09:22:32] 2LT Komillia: Just a blunt stick after all.
[09:22:41] 2LT Komillia: ((Kain was not meant to say that))
[09:22:47] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) just stares at Sarah, and she doesnt look happy.
[09:23:48] Lt. Jaron smiles alittle at that and then to Sarah and Suki then its gone, wondering what will happen here
[09:24:16] Cpt Ishida (Scythe 2-5) takes a deep breath thru her nose and exhales slowly.
[09:24:47] CWO3 Sarah keeps her look at Suki, her expression not happy either. Not in the least.
[09:25:30] Col. Satori: I , I think I will take a look within the ship.
[09:25:44] Col. Satori: Lieutenant, you're with me.
[09:25:52] Col. Satori says to Jaron
[09:26:11] Col. Satori: The rest of you, tend to your duties.
[09:26:32] Lt. Jaron nods to the Colonel "Indeed"
[09:27:08] CWO3 Sarah looks over quickly, the only break in her look at Suki. "Yes, ma'am."
[09:27:08] 2LT Komillia goes back to her job.
[09:27:32] 2LT Kain Crokett stows his gear at his assigned room, if that has happened yet.
[09:27:34] 2Lt. Aylanea slips back somewhere… nice and far off ground zero, where she can do something.
[09:28:37] GM: Okay, as for the Ishida question, I'm not ahving her with the rest of yall without unanimous consent, thats the basic mechanics of it all, beyond that. The ship is loaded and ready to go.
[09:30:25] GM: Your mecha is loaded and Jaron I assume you get with the ships captian and inform him to your intended destination
[09:31:13] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((I can see the RP potential, but I'd want to keep her basically behind a desk to minimalize her dominating group activities…))
[09:31:42] GM: Exactly
[09:31:50] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( that's the idea, she's on medical leave, she's there to analyze the situations and do intel type things, not be out in the field ordering us about. ))
[09:32:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( asides, you saw how well we did without her along. ))
[09:32:05] GM: mediacl leave is transitory, a day or so at teh most
[09:32:13] GM: thats the issue
[09:32:19] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oh ))
[09:32:35] GM: she had a day or so, so yeah, she'll see her BFF off
[09:32:55] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( the question is, she's not considered fit for being on duty yet. ))
[09:32:57] GM: she's not THAT cold…
[09:33:13] Lt. Jaron: (hehehe)
[09:33:15] GM: Her medi leave is for the elective surgery
[09:33:37] GM: so yes, she is fit for duty
[09:34:19] GM: so, agan, all up to you. This is a decision I recuse myself from.
[09:35:45] GM: Okay, moving on, it is time to depart
[09:36:34] Lt. Jaron is alittle nervious, hoping to have everything they might need
[09:36:53] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *peeks at the others ))
[09:39:24] 2LT Komillia goes about her business checking in on her mecha…
[09:39:53] 2Lt. Aylanea makes sure she has everything packed and all, and has everything nice and secured, and tries to make sure that everything is ready, since she's the squad exec, and it's her job to.
[09:40:18] GM: You all have the few hours before departure to settle in, then you slip your moorings and exit the system, then fold. A minute or so later you defold over a dusty planet 500 ly from Karberra.
[09:41:33] Lt. Jaron asks whoever is on sensors "got anything in this sector?"
[09:42:38] Colonial Ship Captain: Clear skies so far.
[09:43:54] Colonial Ship Captain: Put us into Geosynch orbit over the dig if you please.
[09:44:00] Colonial Ship Captain orders his helmsman
[09:45:09] Lt. Jaron: "Thank you Captain"
[09:45:11] GM: Okay guys
[09:45:18] GM: whatcha gonna do?
[09:46:37] 2Lt. Aylanea looks up from whatever little spot in the CIC she's claimed. "Should we attempt to contact the surface?" She looks over to Jaron idly.
[09:46:59] Ahnhel leans against the wall on the bridge.
[09:47:01] Lt. Jaron nods to Ay "Go ahead, see if they response"
[09:47:19] Ahnhel: Ooo, such conviction.
[09:47:24] 2LT Komillia goes up to the CIC.
[09:47:56] 2Lt. Aylanea glances over to Anji. "Open a frequency, please."
[09:48:13] Cpl Summerwind mutters.
[09:48:15] Cpl Summerwind: [1d100] => [35] = (35)
[09:48:23] Lt. Jaron: "I plan to take a shuttle down. I want atleast two to fly cover"
[09:48:28] Cpl Summerwind: Hailing frequancies open…
[09:48:38] Cpl Summerwind cant help but snicker at her funny.
[09:48:57] 2LT Kain Crokett: I'll take the cover spot, I'm not great at talking to people, unless its an interrogation.
[09:49:02] 2Lt. Aylanea snickers just a little. "Yeah, I nearly said that, as well…"
[09:49:48] 2Lt. Aylanea looks to Jaron, and to Anji. "Any response to our hail?"
[09:51:10] Gav'leth: This is the surface. You are early.
[09:51:17] Gav'leth says a gravly karberran voice.
[09:51:19] Lt. Jaron tries to get a hold of someone "This is Lt. Fairman, we are trying to get a hold of Dr. Carter"
[09:51:43] Gav'leth: Dr. Carter is on a dig right now, you should know better then to distrub him.
[09:52:28] Lt. Jaron: "when is his next break?"
[09:52:42] Gav'leth pauses
[09:52:55] Gav'leth sighs
[09:53:49] Gav'leth: He will be back in a few hours. Tell me, why have you returend so early, we were told we would have three months to dig, it's only been half that?
[09:55:03] 2Lt. Aylanea glances over to Jaron and almost laughs.
[09:55:31] Lt. Jaron: "I will explain when I get planetside"
[09:55:52] Gav'leth: Wonderful…surface out.
[09:57:42] GM: Jaron you go to one of the shuttles
[09:57:54] GM: what is everyone else doing?
[09:58:36] 2LT Kain Crokett prepares to fly the cover flight.
[09:58:55] 2LT Komillia boards the shuttle to help convince the good archeologist.
[09:59:20] GM: Ay asrah?
[09:59:23] GM: Sarah
[10:00:21] 2Lt. Aylanea heads to the shuttle as well.
[10:00:43] CWO3 Sarah: (( actually scratch that. ))
[10:00:58] CWO3 Sarah heads to the shuttle quietly, trying not to drag behind.
[10:01:12] 2Lt. Aylanea heads to her Legios, to fly cover for the Rabbit.
[10:01:42] GM: You launch as as yuo begin atmospheric interface you get a scrtachy call from the ship
[10:02:19] Colonial Ship Captain: Shuttle 2, be advised two unidentified ships have just defolded and have launced strike craft.
[10:02:40] Lt. Jaron coms "Understood"
[10:03:12] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks at that. "Oh hell. that's just great…"
[10:03:37] GM: The shuttle pilot lands you near a gathering of tents and prefab structures.
[10:03:51] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( I thought the fighters intercepted as you left, not when you got there ;) ))
[10:03:55] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( j/k ))
[10:04:22] GM: A few dig workers scramble for cover and hold down papers and such on folding tables to keep them from ebing blown away by the thruster wash.
[10:06:27] Lt. Jaron soon exits the shuttle and looks around
[10:06:58] GM: As the dust settles you see a human in rugged attire witha fedora on with low slung pistil stnding next to a very tall Karberran in similir attire wielding a M-29I Arbalest
[10:07:38] Lt. Jaron starts to walk towards them; soon flipping up his visor
[10:07:55] Carter: Dr. Livingston I presume?
[10:08:06] CWO3 Sarah departs the shuttle behind Jaron, quickly.
[10:08:22] CWO3 Sarah: (( yay, Karbarran with bowcaster :) ))
[10:08:34] Lt. Jaron quirks a brow "Afraid not. Lt. Jaron Fairman and in need of your expertise"
[10:08:59] Carter: Oh, is that so?
[10:09:16] Lt. Jaron nods
[10:09:32] Carter: Well, I'm a busy man…
[10:09:50] Carter: So, in your military vernacular…speak words.
[10:10:09] Gav'leth: Heh heh heh.
[10:10:57] 2LT Komillia: We found a book about these Settlers or whatever, and it got stolen. So we would like someone with a bit more knowledge on the subject to point us in a few directions to go…
[10:11:02] Lt. Jaron explains about the tome and various other information about the store owner, what he was.
[10:11:28] Carter see's his annoyed expression turn to one of interest.
[10:11:47] Carter: Well, why are you here. Dr Koto would be the one you should be talking to, not me.
[10:12:22] Lt. Jaron: "He has choosen to work for some others"
[10:12:41] Carter: I'm sorry, you might want to be more specific.
[10:12:53] 2LT Komillia: He works for the Haydonites.
[10:13:11] 2LT Komillia: And stole the book.
[10:13:34] Carter: Of course he does, the Haydonites are trustees at the Tirol Historical Society.
[10:13:50] Carter: Wait what…stole?!
[10:14:14] Lt. Jaron nods
[10:14:35] 2LT Komillia: Yep, he stole the book and wen to go work with the Haydonites who we are now at war with.
[10:14:48] 2LT Komillia: Killing his entire team in the process.
[10:14:49] Carter: War…oh my.
[10:15:00] CWO3 Sarah: "Stole. And upon the theft, the facility they were using was bombed out. How long have you been out here? The Haydonites stabbed the expedition in the back."
[10:15:06] Carter: Ha! I knew he was a bag egg.
[10:15:13] Carter ribs Gav'leth
[10:15:30] Carter: Well obviously I've been out her too long.
[10:15:37] Carter: (her= here)
[10:15:49] Lt. Jaron: "We have a copy"
[10:15:59] Carter: You do you say?
[10:16:37] 2LT Komillia: Well a portion of a translation, unless Jaron photocopied it without me knowing. which wouldn't be hard…
[10:16:41] GM: Above you inthe sky there is a quartet of sonic booms followed by four fire balls decending thru the atmosphere, heading towards you.
[10:17:14] Colonial Ship Captain: Ground team, enemy strike craft are engaged with us and other have made plaetfall.
[10:17:30] Lt. Jaron nods "Yes, so we need to come along with us to help find the original and get ahead of Koto and Haydonites. I have a guess the Haydonites might know something we dont"
[10:17:39] 2LT Kain Crokett: Acknowledged.
[10:17:54] Lt. Jaron: need you^
[10:18:13] Carter: Well tahts all fine and well, but I see only one shuttle and we have 20 workers here plus myself and Gave here.
[10:18:16] 2LT Kain Crokett turns to intercept.
[10:18:36] Lt. Jaron: "Ay, Sarah take the legios and split"
[10:18:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( uh, did Ay or Kain actually get out of their mechas even? ))
[10:19:10] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( I'm pretty sure not when a scramble was likely shortly. ))
[10:19:12] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( anyway. ))
[10:19:16] Lt. Jaron: (thought you did but if not strike it)
[10:19:18] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( how far away was the doctor at lanidng point? ))
[10:19:27] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((I never said I did.))
[10:19:29] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( close enough for Sarah to board quick? ))
[10:19:46] GM: Doc met you as you landed
[10:19:49] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( kk ))
[10:20:13] GM: I will cliff it here.
