Chapter 14 - Act II - Part 5


[06:08:15] Chris: Shall we begin?
[06:08:30] James: If we must.
[06:08:51] Chris: Since Jaron is in an other section of the ship, and Ay and Kain are right there, why not
[06:09:34] Chris: if we must…makes this sound like such a chore…
[06:10:10] 2LT Kain Crokett: kekeke
[06:10:25] 2Lt. Aylanea: hee hee
[06:10:44] GM: when we last left off, Anji and Kain were on their knees befor the Doge.
[06:11:59] GM: And Ay and Suki were in the rafters
[06:12:17] GM: like racoons
[06:12:20] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((And they had a butt-kicking session))
[06:12:41] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((Such cute little pests…))
[06:12:43] GM: this is true, but Anji and Kain have no idea.
[06:12:59] GM: Tanuki desu
[06:13:31] GM: so, we will start down below,
[06:14:16] GM: The Doge sits, smug and cocksure, as his house guard stand's by and a Centurion watches over.
[06:15:27] Doge: So tell me human, this has been gnawing at me since your claim. Why stay behind once you had dispatched this rabble…
[06:15:35] Doge waves at the strung up bodies.
[06:15:56] Doge: When a simple note or inscription of credit would have sufficed?
[06:16:37] Sgt. Summerwind: Ah…good question.
[06:16:41] Sgt. Summerwind looks at Kain.
[06:17:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[06:20:13] 2LT Kain Crokett: A note would have been the safer way of dealing with this, but my own arrogance thought I could convince you to help us blow some Haydonites up.
[06:22:57] Doge: Ah yes, the Haydonites. Troublesome machines aren't they.
[06:24:13] Doge: Our forefathers listened to them in the past. As did you humans.
[06:24:34] Doge: But…
[06:24:38] Doge claps his hands.
[06:24:44] Doge: That is niether here nor there.
[06:25:10] Doge: What to do with you however, what to do, what to do.
[06:25:31] Doge looks up at his Centurion, and the Centurion nods.
[06:27:01] Doge: Well then, your companions up above. If I was a betting man, I'd say your odds of survival just went down some.
[06:27:48] Sgt. Summerwind looks at the Doge, teh Centurion, Kain, and then over her shoulder, then back to Kain and snorts.
[06:28:26] Sgt. Summerwind: What odds you wanna give this guys saps?
[06:28:35] Sgt. Summerwind motiones towards the Doge with her head.
[06:30:46] 2LT Kain Crokett: And here I was hoping for a peaceful solution. I'm guessing knowing where the followers of P'tok and all the little security holes they have that allowed us to get this close isn't worth much to you.
[06:31:35] Doge 's look of annoyance at Anjis comment is replaced by the more smug one as he turns to Kain.
[06:31:58] Doge: Oh no, that does interest me, but, I'd prefer to have the upper hand , if you get my meaning.
[06:32:41] GM: Above you you can hear a tussle.
[06:32:57] Doge: Oh wonderful!
[06:33:00] Doge: It's begun.
[06:33:03] Arelius (enter): 18:33
[06:33:29] GM: (sup B)
[06:35:55] 2LT Kain Crokett: I'm thinking I should have brought an umbrella. It's about to rain blood.
[06:36:05] Sgt. Summerwind giggles.
[06:36:36] Sgt. Summerwind: Sure hope you didn't send your best guys…those take so long to clone.
[06:37:07] Doge Guard: Silance you!
[06:37:32] Doge: Oh? You think your fellows stand a chance against my house guard?
[06:37:44] Doge: How, quaint.
[06:39:10] GM: (waiting on Kain to say sumthin…)
[06:39:14] 2LT Kain Crokett: Care to bet on it?
[06:39:25] Doge: A wadger?
[06:39:28] Doge: ((sp))
[06:39:38] Doge: Oh, how priceless.
[06:39:53] Doge: Should I Devorack? I do so like a good game.
[06:41:13] Doge Guard: I think our chances are good milord.
[06:41:46] Doge: Very well then, what is your bet?
[06:45:24] 2LT Kain Crokett: If my team wins, you let us live and give us information on what you know of Master mothership locations.
[06:46:38] 1st.Fairman: history [1d100] => [68] = (68) vs 46; repair [1d100] => [8] = (8) vs 70
[06:47:21] Doge: Very well, in turn, when my men win, you all get introduced to my Science Masters and flight for me for the rest of your days.
[06:47:49] Doge: Well maybe not you my sweet, I'd much rahter have you tend to…other tasks.
[06:47:54] Doge looks at Anji.
[06:48:12] 2LT Kain Crokett: Disturbingly, I've taken worse bets…
[06:48:34] Sgt. Summerwind: Yeah, well, I haven't, Capt Superfly better win this…
[06:48:55] Sgt. Summerwind mutters under her breath…
[06:49:29] Doge: Well, on your feet, I'd like your last few moments of freedom to be comfortable at least.
[06:49:53] Doge makes a 'rise' motion with his hands.
[06:50:34] 2LT Kain Crokett stands up and stretches his neck. "thank you."
[06:51:01] GM: Shortly afterwards a cry of pain (muffled by a helment and clenched teeth apparently) is heard from up above. Followed almost instantly by a high pitched scream.
[06:52:00] GM: Kain, your prediction about an umbrella bear fruit as a steady stream of blood begins to wash from the rafters.
[06:52:25] Doge: Oh dear…
[06:52:39] Doge Doge puts his hand in front of his mouth in feigned concern.
[06:52:46] Doge: I do how that wasn't one of yours.
[06:52:53] Doge: (how = hope)
[06:53:01] Doge: That sounded painful.
[06:53:05] Doge chrotles.
[06:53:28] 2LT Kain Crokett looks up and shouts, "Hey guys, when your done with those Doge's guys, toss down the bodies."
[06:53:38] Doge: (chortles
[06:54:28] GM: A few seconds after that, maybe 10 or so, there is another scream.
[06:55:20] GM: Ay, and Ishida must roll a perc target to beat is a 17 to hear Kain (as you are most defiantly preoccupied…)
[06:55:35] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): [1d20+3] => [17,3] = (20)
[06:56:13] GM: Ay?
[06:56:37] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] => [13] = (13)
[06:56:49] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( fail. :p :) lol ))
[06:57:27] GM: Ishida passes along the message.
[06:57:39] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[06:59:12] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly to Suki and deals with the body of the one she'd been fighting.
[07:00:25] GM: Presnetly a half stripped body plumets from teh rafters, (stripped as in no armor or weaponry, and it's missing an arm…
[07:00:43] GM: It lands with a bone crunching thud.
[07:01:33] 2LT Kain Crokett: I'm convinced our resident samurai plays way too many MMOs…
[07:01:53] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *snickers* ))
[07:03:20] GM: A little while later, there is the rattling of chains in a pully, and another half stripped body is lowered to the deck, still alive, bound and gagged, and covered in his own blood from wounds from the thigh and crotch.
[07:04:04] GM: Devorack looks ashen faced, he seems to recognize the still alive fellow.
[07:04:21] GM: The Doge stands, furious.
[07:04:46] GM: The Doge sputters then kicks his stoll away in a huff and paces.
[07:04:53] GM: (stool)
[07:05:13] Sgt. Summerwind laens over to Kain.
[07:05:25] Sgt. Summerwind: I dun think he loses many bets…well, that matter anyway.
[07:06:51] 2LT Kain Crokett: I figured on that.
[07:07:06] Doge: You…
[07:07:13] Doge points at Kain.
[07:07:34] 2LT Kain Crokett stands at attention and tries to hide a sense of satisfaction.
[07:07:57] Doge: You would have made a good slave.
[07:08:21] Doge regains his composure and strightens out his tunic.
[07:08:55] Doge: You have won the bet, savor this moment, for it will not happen again.
[07:10:37] 2LT Kain Crokett: I imagine not. However, once we have left I'll give you what information I have on the P'tok cult on your ship. But only after my team is safely away.
[07:10:51] Doge: Very well.
[07:11:10] Doge waves his hand dismissivly and his house guard stands down.
[07:12:27] Doge: Well, why dont you have your…people, come on down.
[07:13:07] 2LT Kain Crokett shouts to the rafters. "All clear, we have reached an understanding, of sorts."
[07:13:22] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((AFK)
[07:13:28] GM: Ishida jumps down (power armor leap!)
[07:14:34] 2Lt. Aylanea jumps down as well.
[07:14:41] GM: The Doge lives up to his word, and gives you clear passage. Although since the dock is a P'tok cult haven he insists it be taken. He does however allow you to communicate this to the team within that dock.
[07:16:27] GM: Those in the Roil get word via secured UEEF uplink (i.e a code you recognize as valid) that the rest of the team is on their way, but the dock will become a battleground, so, stay down, and don't let the Roil serve as an escape boat. (that would be bad…not needing to be siad is the fact that if it does launch, it will be shot down with all hands.)
[07:17:05] 1st.Fairman coms back "Roger that backstabbers"
[07:17:08] GM: Also relayed is the fact that they assault will not begin until you Roil/Dock folks are ready.
[07:17:44] GM: So, ball is in your court now Jaron, Sarah, and Komi
[07:19:00] CWO3 Sarah settles into the seat on the Roil, nodding and checking her weapon with a resigned sigh, looking it over, glancing back to where their soon to be former pilot is, and looking to Komi quickly.
[07:19:40] 1st.Fairman looks to Sarah "Capture him. If you kill; you'll fight me again. This is a lot of shit"
[07:20:14] 1st.Fairman: (what armor did merrick have on?)
[07:21:08] GM: Merrick is dressed civilian clothing…
[07:21:23] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((back.))
[07:22:28] 1st.Fairman stands beside the door a count of steps away "Sarah; call him"
[07:22:30] 2LT Komillia Maeless readys her weapons for what is about to go down.
[07:22:48] GM: And Komi has anothe coughing fit complete with coughed up blood.
[07:23:10] CWO3 Sarah looks to Komi again, sighing softly at Jaron. "So noted. Should be interesting to see how things pan out when Lt. Ishida gets back. Meantime, we should probably lock down the ship if we can, or prepare to keep a potential escape out." She looks to Jaron and sighs, looking back. "Merrick? Can you come here for a moment?"
[07:23:13] CWO3 Sarah: (( eek ))
[07:24:33] 2LT Komillia Maeless wipes the blood from her mouth, noting she really needs to see the other Invid when they get back.
[07:25:29] GM: Merrick arrives, at a liesurly pace.
[07:25:45] Pilot Merrik: What is it?
[07:25:51] 1st.Fairman jumps Merrick and goes to sleeper hold, hoping to surprise the poor fellow
[07:26:01] GM: strike roll
[07:26:10] 1st.Fairman: [1d20+6] => [17,6] = (23)
[07:26:21] GM: You have him!
[07:26:43] GM: There is no way for him to resist the augmented strength of the Terminator armor.
[07:26:46] 1st.Fairman: sdc to hp to knock him out?
[07:26:53] 1st.Fairman: sdc=damage
[07:26:58] 1st.Fairman: ok
[07:27:27] 1st.Fairman whispers to Merrick as he goes out "Sorry"
[07:27:38] GM: You have wrestiling so I'm assuming you know how to exacute a text book sleeper
[07:28:09] 1st.Fairman: (I do have wrestling skill)
[07:28:16] GM: (I know)
[07:28:45] GM: Merrick sags like a sack of potatoes.
[07:30:29] CWO3 Sarah looks around for something to tie him up with. [1d20+1] => [15,1] = (16) perc
[07:31:01] GM: There are cargo ties downs in the hold.
[07:31:23] 1st.Fairman lets him down slowly as Sarah gets the ties
[07:31:46] CWO3 Sarah heads to get a few, and comes back to tie him up with them, looking idly at Jaron once in a while as she works on it.
[07:32:30] GM: As you get the ties a few of the Roil crew watch idly.
[07:33:20] 1st.Fairman: (thought he was only one but oh well)
[07:33:29] CWO3 Sarah: (( … so did I. :p ))
[07:33:58] GM: Nope, I told ya he had a crew.
[07:34:11] CWO3 Sarah: (( oh. ))
[07:34:23] 1st.Fairman looks to them "Doge is coming and a fight is coming you can't win. let us restrain you and hide you or face Doge" (impress/charm [1d100] => [65] = (65) vs 40)
[07:35:34] 1st.Fairman sincere and pleading to avoid farther guilt
[07:36:12] GM: They look at each other, then drop whatever it was they were doing and flee the Roil hurling names like traitor, heritic and blashphemer as they do so. They disappear down the gang way at top speed.
[07:36:52] 1st.Fairman: "That works too"
[07:37:08] 2LT Komillia Maeless: I get the feeling that there is going to be a lot of bloodshed on this ship soon.
[07:37:18] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Though that was kinda unavoidable.
[07:37:29] 1st.Fairman: "duh shit"
[07:37:34] CWO3 Sarah sighs softly at that, glancing over. "Great job…" She glances down at the gangway. "We need to keep them from getting aboard. If we can't lock it down, we'll have to guard the ramp."
[07:38:05] GM: Kain, you, with a cohort of Centuirns of the House guard see two crewmen run from the roil, towards your hidden position.
[07:38:06] 1st.Fairman: "Lock it up and just be quiet"
[07:38:37] GM: You also see the Roil's doors raise and latch.
[07:39:59] 2LT Kain Crokett tries to raise the book team, "Do you have the Roil secured?"
[07:40:08] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((tell me if you need me to roll radio…))
[07:40:13] GM: No
[07:40:26] 1st.Fairman coms "Sure"
[07:41:24] 2LT Kain Crokett performs a sweep for any resistance. [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13) PERC, [1d100] => [59] = (59) vs 55 Detect ambush, [1d100] => [97] = (97) vs 50 Track People
[07:41:36] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((facepalm.))
[07:42:32] GM: No help there Kain. A nearby Centurion turns to Kain. "Do your people hold the ship?"
[07:42:59] 1st.Fairman coms "Come on killers; lets get out of here before lots of bloodshed"
[07:43:47] 2LT Kain Crokett: They hold the ship.
[07:44:17] CWO3 Sarah just sighs and shakes her head again.
[07:45:43] GM: The Cneturion relays taht and the asasult begins, the first to be taken down are the two runners, and then the bay is flooded by Terminators supported by a trio of Boiroid Mecha
[07:46:12] GM: The battle is over almost as soon as it began, and the bay is secured.
[07:48:02] 1st.Fairman comments sarcastically "yay us"
[07:48:53] GM: A squad of Centurions approach the Roil. "Those inside, open the doors so taht we may take your priosner.
[07:49:44] GM: Meanwhile Kain, you and your other folks are allowed into the bay, with an escort./
[07:50:11] 1st.Fairman goes hide Merrick and coms "We maybe then flee the ship"
[07:50:19] 1st.Fairman: (maybe=made)
[07:50:40] 1st.Fairman: camouflage is need [1d100] => [63] = (63) vs 75
[07:50:58] 1st.Fairman: (then=them*)
[07:51:01] House Guard: Then you will not mind us searching the vessel.
[07:51:03] 1st.Fairman: (bad fingers, bad)
[07:51:15] 2LT Kain Crokett: "So good to know that we hold enough value to have such a dutiful escort." Kain comms the book team, "You cna open the doors its safe."
[07:51:26] House Guard looks at Kain.
[07:51:41] 1st.Fairman nods to Sarah or Komi to open the door
[07:51:43] House Guard: You promised information, we are here to retrieve it.
[07:51:56] CWO3 Sarah sighs, and opens the door with a shrug.
[07:52:16] 1st.Fairman wonders why Kain hasnt told them the info yet
[07:52:26] GM: The Centurions board and search the ship [1d100] => [44] = (44) Detect Concealment
[07:52:44] GM: They find the pilot.
[07:52:59] GM: And a lot of other contraband as well.
[07:53:06] 1st.Fairman comments "umm we need the pilot"
[07:53:47] 2LT Kain Crokett looks cock-eyed at Fairman.
[07:54:31] 1st.Fairman: "If you are so sure to pilot have at it but rather keep him alive to operate"
[07:54:31] Sgt. Summerwind: They probobly wont let us take the ship anyway.
[07:55:01] 2LT Kain Crokett: It's true none of us really know how to fly this ship. So unless you have another means of us getting back to our ship…
[07:55:44] Sgt. Summerwind: Call ours in, have it fold in right outside the bay, ferry over and fold out. Keep sus out of their gunsights if it's close enough to the hull.
[07:56:03] Sgt. Summerwind: You know, just in case they change their minds.
[07:56:40] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): And a 'gift' of the Roil would be 'well recieved' as well I would think.
[07:56:48] 2LT Kain Crokett: I hear that.
[07:57:53] 1st.Fairman looks at Ay and Suki; as its clear they did all the work. "What the fuck ever; lets just get going"
[07:58:00] 2LT Kain Crokett: Centurion, if you would allow us to contact our ship so it can fold in close to the bay for us to ferry over, you can keep the Roil, as we won't need it.
[07:58:07] CWO3 Sarah just stays quiet, keeping distance between herself and Fairman.
[07:58:29] House Guard relays that, and a little while later says.
[07:58:35] House Guard: Permission granted.
[07:58:42] House Guard: Be brief.
[08:00:16] 2Lt. Aylanea peers back at Jaron, shrugging slightly to him.
[08:00:33] 2LT Kain Crokett coms the base. "Mission completed, fold to the coordinates and prepare to recieve our ferry over."
[08:00:47] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((*these coordinates))
[08:01:36] GM: You get confirmation some time later as shortly thereafter ther eis a bright flash as the Mistress folds in.
[08:02:17] 1st.Fairman is still steaming as Ay can might preceive.
[08:02:39] GM: A rabbit is launched and is allowed to land.
[08:03:01] GM: A centurion moves to Kain and holds out his hand (not to hake it oranything, but to recieve)
[08:03:10] GM: (hake = shake)
[08:04:04] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((we talking about giving the info about the P'tok people right?))
[08:04:10] GM: ((yes))
[08:04:24] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((did we ever get the Mothership info that was part of the bet?))
[08:04:43] GM: The centurion holds in his other hand a data crystal
[08:04:58] 2LT Kain Crokett pulls out his notes on the P
[08:05:09] GM: (chip, card, whatever they Masters use that is sufficiantly hi tech and cool)
[08:05:11] 2LT Kain Crokett pulls out his notes on the P'tok cult and hands it over.
[08:05:32] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((in whatever form is reasonable.))
[08:05:39] 1st.Fairman goes to get on the rabbit with the book
[08:05:40] GM: A-Trak!
[08:05:49] GM: * Track
[08:05:51] GM: 8
[08:05:54] GM: bleh, nm
[08:05:58] 1st.Fairman: (hehe)
[08:05:59] GM: Beta Max
[08:06:04] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol. 8 track tapes. ))
[08:06:04] 2LT Kain Crokett holds out his hand to recieve the data about the motherships.
[08:06:21] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((considering Robotech was made in the 80s…))
[08:06:22] GM: Anji snaps it up and plonks it into a reader…
[08:06:48] 2LT Kain Crokett once the information is exchanged gets onto the Rabbit.
[08:06:55] GM: ((Yeah, no shit, none of that, Paging Lt. hunter crap would have flown ina world of cell phones and blackberry's))
[08:07:22] 2LT Komillia Maeless holds her ribs as she sits down on the Rabbit.
[08:07:35] GM: Anji seems satisfied that the info is genuine and in good faith.
[08:08:26] CWO3 Sarah looks to Komi very worriedly, moving to sit somewhere in a corner.
[08:09:26] GM: The Rabbit loads up and you all fly out, no sooner do you enter the bay then the ship folds out.
[08:09:58] GM: Mid fold the red combat lighting shifts to white operational lighting
[08:10:43] 1st.Fairman comments to Kain or whoever "So when did you all decide to stab them in the back?"
[08:11:40] 2LT Kain Crokett: The instant the captain approached me about stopping the assasination.
[08:12:07] 1st.Fairman: "and why did it matter?"
[08:12:53] 2LT Kain Crokett: Because that would have sparked a war on a second front for both the UEEF and the Colonies. And if we had to engage in an active war on two fronts, we would lose.
[08:14:51] 1st.Fairman: "So slaughting a whole group of people for one person wanted by the UEEF. I doubt the two front conflict or its relativity."
[08:15:29] 1st.Fairman: "Cutting the head of that snake would have worked to our advantage."
[08:16:49] 1st.Fairman: "plus give the resistance the hope it needed to strike and boost morale; so they would have to deal with internal battle another advantage"
[08:17:12] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) watches and listens , realizing that she's facing heat on her own front.
[08:17:17] 2LT Kain Crokett: How? Do you not know the Masters' own cloning methods? Ambushing that body would have meant that they would have just cloned another Doge. We wouldn't have cut off the head. We would have given it a black eye, and gone from border skirmishes to all out war.
[08:17:53] Sgt. Summerwind: Guy we met was prolly a body double anyway.
[08:17:59] Sgt. Summerwind huffs as she leaves the area.
[08:18:13] 1st.Fairman shakes his head "Whatever. Im done with this crap."
[08:18:15] 1st.Fairman leaves
[08:18:46] Sgt. Summerwind: I'll take Komzilla up to medical.
[08:19:25] 2LT Kain Crokett: Thanks, Summerwind.
[08:19:54] Sgt. Summerwind: What happened to her anyway, she's been hacking since we left.
[08:19:57] 1st.Fairman takes the book to the egghead and his wookie.
[08:20:16] 1st.Fairman leaves it with them; doesnt even feel like talking to them iether
[08:21:47] 2LT Komillia Maeless: I got hit with some move by a terminator using the sword. His strike probably ruptured, something…
[08:21:58] 2LT Komillia Maeless: OR its seriiously messing with my Chi…
[08:22:08] 2Lt. Aylanea nods to Anji. "almost wished it would have gone south enough that I could have ripped apart the guy harassing you. You okay? Or needing some checking as well?"
[08:22:14] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Possibly.
[08:22:49] CWO3 Sarah nods at that. "She's been like that for quite a while…"
[08:23:09] Sgt. Summerwind: Aww, thanks LT, appreciate it, but nah, I'll be fine, not the worst I've had, or will have.
[08:23:35] Sgt. Summerwind: C'mon hacky.
[08:23:45] Sgt. Summerwind says as she takes Komi up to sickbay.
[08:23:48] 2LT Komillia Maeless goes to the doc. "Hey, um, I'm coughing up blood."
[08:24:17] Ahnhel: Oh wonderful, does it hurt?
[08:25:13] Ahnhel runs her scans, tech and otherwise.
[08:26:26] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Only when I breathe.
[08:26:51] GM: In game terms, you will be -2 init, -10% on skills, and -1 attack until you cure yourself. It is indeed a chi attack. After one full day you may make a save vs illness twice per day until cured.
[08:27:07] GM: PE Bonuses apply
[08:27:32] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Wait, I didn't think you wanted to use Chi in this game…))
[08:27:43] GM: you can roll lore or whatnot if you wish regards your affliciton
[08:28:15] GM: ((I use it sparingly, like, once…just to spice things up, and as a test of sorts))
[08:29:54] GM: ((and this is a far cry from the mystic chi powers and such, this can be passed off as a strike on a vital point that causes lingering effects))
[08:30:02] 1st.Fairman stays in his quarters for the most; headphones on playing soundscape/atmosphere music. Doesn't change as he tries to deal with things mentally
[08:30:22] GM: Oh dat room be funky nao!
[08:31:11] GM: meanwhile Han and Chewie look over the book and demand of it to 'Reveal your secrets!"
[08:31:37] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d30] => [24] = (24) vs 15 IQ (no lore to speak of.)
[08:32:02] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:32:04] GM: You'd have to read up a bit, you bet your master would know…
[08:32:17] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20+1] => [15,1] = (16) Save vs. Illness
[08:32:20] GM: Ole Master Po, he was cagy like that.
[08:32:45] GM: and bammo, after 24 hours of suck, your check clears up and the pain subsides.
[08:32:52] GM: Chest
[08:33:21] 1st.Fairman does work on the armor the day sometime [1d100] => [70] = (70) vs 70[08:33:30] CWO3 Sarah gets herself a shower, and goes to find a quiet, empty corner of the ship where she can sit and have plenty of peace and quiet.
[08:34:15] GM: Ishida the homing Samurai eventuallt locates Sarah, and respectfully waits at a polite distance until noticed.
[08:34:45] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) sits sieza and waits.
[08:34:56] CWO3 Sarah glances up at Suki, frowning slightly. "Something you need?"
[08:35:34] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I think, it is you in need. Of an apology.
[08:36:26] 2LT Komillia Maeless: And now I feel better. This is officially wierd.
[08:36:56] Ahnhel: You zents always did heal fast…
[08:38:59] 2LT Komillia Maeless: I still but this as wierd.
[08:39:16] 1st.Fairman stays in the funk; eating some snacks he has in his room. Still in his our head with the music
[08:39:18] 2LT Komillia Maeless: I wonder if he hadn't figured out some wierd psi power or something.
[08:40:12] Ahnhel: Between Garudans, Pyertonians, and Invid, it's possible. Protoculture does wonderous things.
[08:40:17] 2LT Kain Crokett reports to the captain about the events that transpired. In as much detail as he can.
[08:40:58] CWO3 Sarah raises her eyebrows. "Certainly in need of something, anyway…" She sighs, looking down at the floor. "I'm glad you understand what I'm upset about. I do understand the need to prevent the assassination. But having to do what I did?" She sighs. "Honestly, when Fairman punched me for it I almost felt I deserved it."
[08:41:18] GM: The captian takes in the report, compliments you ona job well done, tells you to get some rest and has navigation play with the info you recovered.
[08:42:06] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods in suplication until the last sentance, at which point she bristles and her hand goes to the hilt of her sword.
[08:42:14] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): He did….WHAT?!
[08:42:44] 2LT Kain Crokett goes down to check on Maeless or Amdahl, depending on which he finds sooner…
[08:43:30] GM: Roll a d20, 1-14 Mealess, 15-20 Sarah (since she went into a off area)
[08:44:23] CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "Long story. He'd actually cooled down some by the time you got back." She sighs. "That's not the problem though. Why, with my background, did you specifically order me to be someone that I'm not? Getting those kind or orders, that far against my nature…" she sighs.
[08:44:57] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d20] => [8] = (8)
[08:45:47] 2LT Kain Crokett looks in on Maeless in the docs office, "So everyone in here all right?"
[08:45:52] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) purses her lips and calms down some. She'll deal with the issue, in time.
[08:46:02] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Wierdly, yes.
[08:47:10] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): If you want an explination I will provide it, but, I think you already know, and it would cheapen my apology. I am sorry, and I do not wish to sully it with justification.
[08:47:59] 2LT Kain Crokett: I assume Lt. Fairman did not take to the change in plans the way he should have.
[08:48:30] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Yes, but that is not my place to explain what happened. At least not until the victim says otherwise.
[08:48:46] Sgt. Summerwind: Oh snap, don't like the sound of that one.
[08:49:25] CWO3 Sarah sighs softly and shrugs. "Please don't do it again? If I wanted to be ordered to do things against my nature, I could have stayed in the New Delhi hive."
[08:49:25] 2LT Kain Crokett: So, Doc Ahnhel. How long before our blood cougher is medically cleared?
[08:50:32] Ahnhel: her cough is gone, and her pain with it, I honeslty dont know what caused it, or what made it go away. So yes, please, stop taking up my space and off with you.
[08:50:47] Ahnhel makes a shooing motion with her hands.
[08:51:35] 2LT Kain Crokett: Alright you to ladies. I order you to the mess for some real food.
[08:51:54] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): I can not promise it will never happen again, I can only promise that if it does, it will be becuase I will have been left with no other alternative.
[08:52:24] Sgt. Summerwind: Yay food!
[08:52:31] Sgt. Summerwind hustles on off to the mess hall.
[08:53:15] Ahnhel: Ick, it's going to take forever to get the stink of zentraedi out of here.
[08:53:29] Ahnhel starts spraying air freshner throughout the compartment.
[08:53:40] CWO3 Sarah: (( *rolls* ))
[08:55:32] 2LT Kain Crokett: Ot could be worse: It could be Robotech Master stink.
[08:55:56] Ahnhel: Oh by the all mother your right!
[08:56:04] Ahnhel sprays Anji on her way out. Ssssssssssssssss
[08:56:11] 2LT Kain Crokett: Think of all the fermaldahyde (spelling is probably way off).
[08:56:36] 1st.Fairman (enter): 20:56
[08:56:44] Sgt. Summerwind: Hey, lay off my threads you crazy bitch!
[08:56:49] Sgt. Summerwind laughs as she scampers out.
[08:56:51] CWO3 Sarah looks down at the floor and sighs. "Just remember what the eventual result might be. Though I'll simply tender a reisgnation here." She shrugs.
[08:56:58] CWO3 Sarah: (( *gigglesnorts* ))
[08:56:59] 1st.Fairman: (last thing I saw was (1) CWO3 Sarah: (( *rolls* ))
(3) 2LT Kain Crokett: Ot could be worse: It could be Robotech Master stink.)
[08:57:00] 1st.Fairman (exit): 20:57
[08:57:35] GM: ((sent backlog via AIM))
[08:58:01] 1st.Fairman: (got it)
[08:58:20] 2LT Kain Crokett takes the two down to the mess hall and orders up a cheeseburger, fries and a salad. The standard in mess hall meals.
[08:58:25] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) scoots forward on her knees.
[08:58:35] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): You, you aren't leavnig the service are you?
[08:58:37] 1st.Fairman starts to type into a journal of sorts
[08:59:04] CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "I simply mean if it happens too often." She shrugs.
[08:59:22] GM: ((If this were Gundam, you could get your burger out of a vending machine, just like Lt. Bright))
[09:00:00] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods.
[09:00:09] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:00:09] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Hai, wakarimasu.
[09:01:26] CWO3 Sarah sighs, and considers it. "I should probably write up my whole formal report for Lt. Crockett, as well…" She hmms. "So how'd the stuff on the Doge end go? I must say, I was worried until we folded away, that there'd eventually be a double-cross."
[09:01:45] 2LT Komillia Maeless orders the Mars Bowl and starts by picking at the fried rice.
[09:01:59] GM: Ishida tell Sarah what occured.
[09:03:02] CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "I should have been there. It's not that hard talking to people… Maybe I could have gotten things fixed without a mess." She shakes her head and laughs if the description of Ay's little fight gets tendered.
[09:04:29] CWO3 Sarah rolls her eyes slightly. "Still… what you get for letting the special ops guy do the diplomacy." She smiles just a little at that.
[09:05:22] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Oh goddamit, nobody here watched Nadesico?))
[09:05:25] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods.
[09:05:50] GM: Nabisco what?
[09:06:08] CWO3 Sarah: (( *blink* :p :) ))
[09:06:10] CWO3 Sarah: (( no ))
[09:06:32] CWO3 Sarah sighs and stands up a bit. "I suppose I should get back to civilization anyway. Sorry I made you come find me like that."
[09:08:24] GM: The data you recieved from the Doge is parsed. Of the 12 original motherships launched, the Asbillides was the fourth abandoned, so, the doge only has infomration on the last known locations of the previous three.
[09:09:07] GM: However, he does provide good detail on the other 8 ships as more a fuck you to them for leaving them behind to drift and die, then out of any sence of helpfulness to you.
[09:09:44] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:10:22] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((lol))
[09:10:53] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((Martian Successor Nadesico, the Ace Pilot really wanted to be a cook.))
[09:11:06] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh heh ))
[09:11:14] 2LT Kain Crokett finishes his meal and goes to check in on Ahmdahl
[09:13:38] GM: The book is looked over and beyond the written contents which at this point more of an historical and archeological curiosity, more vague prose about ancient happenings and primer information starting simple and more complex (basically stone to Bronze age in terms of tech level) dealing with in this case agriculture, the real prize seems to be the book itself.
[09:14:47] CWO3 Sarah slips out from where she was hiding, eventually, heading for her quarters.
[09:15:05] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d20] => [16] = (16)
[09:15:15] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((if he spots Sarah))
[09:15:27] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) slips out behind her and goes to her quarters.
[09:15:54] GM: You turn a corner and see Sarah, and then Suki both leave a nook in the wall on Deck 13
[09:16:25] GM: Well, not a nook, but a side room, storage etc.
[09:17:22] GM: Ahem anyway, back to the book. Carter is able to note that the pages have an imbedded pattern in it, which looks like a combination of curcuit board and runes
[09:17:31] 2LT Kain Crokett: Excuse me, am I interupting something?
[09:17:44] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): No lieutenant.
[09:18:29] 2LT Kain Crokett: I was hoping to check in on the members of the book team that don't want my blood. Would this be a good time?
[09:18:43] CWO3 Sarah shakes her head just a little bit at interrupting something, nodding just a little bit. "Certainly."
[09:18:43] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) calls after Sarah.
[09:18:46] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Chief?
[09:18:56] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) then nods as Sarah answers.
[09:19:06] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Very well then, I will take my leave.
[09:19:13] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) nods to both and departs.
[09:19:19] CWO3 Sarah: (( they came out together, she's right there to not need calling ;) ))
[09:19:28] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[09:19:41] GM: ((oh, I was envisioning a few second wait on Suki's part…))
[09:19:49] CWO3 Sarah: (( oh. ))
[09:19:50] GM: ((nm then))
[09:20:02] CWO3 Sarah: (( mkay. ))
[09:20:07] CWO3 Sarah: (( sry ))
[09:20:27] CWO3 Sarah nods to Suki, and waves as she goes, looking to Kain and sighing. "So. Where would you like to be for the full report?"
[09:21:48] 2LT Kain Crokett: Whereever is most comfortable for you. But I understand Fairman did something that may be an issue. So if you want to start their, great otherwise, you can give me the report when we get to whereever you want to give that report.
[09:23:44] CWO3 Sarah sighs and raises her eyebrows. "It's not an issue. And I'm not really wanting action taken on it. It was more due to stress related to circumstances."
[09:23:58] CWO3 Sarah gestures to a nearby empty room, if there is one.
[09:24:16] CWO3 Sarah: (( well, one that won't look like she and Kain slipped into the closet to do something inappropriate, anyway ))
[09:24:20] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:24:40] GM: ((oh noes, into the broomcloset)
[09:25:08] GM: ((well, there is a conferance room on the bridge, and the pilots ready room
[09:25:18] CWO3 Sarah: (( otherwise quarters most likely. And ah. p ))
[09:25:19] 1st.Fairman decides to clean up some after writing the passage; along with defunking the power armor as well.
[09:25:20] CWO3 Sarah: (( hedhe ))
[09:25:47] CWO3 Sarah glances about. "Probably either my quarters or the pilot ready room, really. Lack of space here."
[09:25:54] 2LT Kain Crokett directs Sarah to the pilot's ready room.
[09:27:24] 2LT Kain Crokett listens to Sarah's report.
[09:27:32] CWO3 Sarah heads there, and promptly gives her whole, long account of everything that transpired, looking essentially down at the floor as she remembers all of it to run off.
[09:28:13] 2LT Kain Crokett: Thank you, chief. Captain wants us to get some rest. So, consider that a direct order from him.
[09:28:29] CWO3 Sarah nods. "Understood."
[09:28:59] 2LT Kain Crokett: I'll go make sure Fairman knows. I just need to get a Cyclone first…
[09:29:12] 1st.Fairman once smelling somewhat normal; put the armor back on as a reminder then heads to the egghead and bear.
[09:29:23] CWO3 Sarah snickers at that.
[09:30:36] GM: Read up for the results of the book, since I'm not retyping it
[09:31:10] 1st.Fairman nods to information, wishing for a copy for himself
[09:32:40] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) cleans up, cleans and stows her Terminator armor as well as captured rifle and blades, dresses back in uEEF issue then returns to CAG duty.
[09:32:58] 2LT Kain Crokett eventually tracks Fairman down, and upon seeing him in armor regrets that his Cyclone line to Sarah wasn't a joke.
[09:33:38] 1st.Fairman once getting a copy; thanks them and then heads to the mess for food
[09:34:31] 2Lt. Aylanea cleans the armor she claimed, makes note to see about finding an arm for it, and shrugs, smiling and hanging it up in favor of her own flightsuit.
[09:34:40] 2LT Kain Crokett: Listen, Fairman, I just wanted to pass on to get some rest. We have issues with each other, but trying to deal with it now is only going to come to blows. So I suggest we wait for another time, or we deal with it through the IG's office, and let an arbitrater decide the issue.
[09:35:51] GM: Afew random crewmen in the vacinity of that, scatter.
[09:36:21] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[09:36:37] 1st.Fairman nods as he eats some food
[09:37:17] 2LT Kain Crokett leaves to go pass the message on to the Doge team now, leaving Capt. Ishida for last.
[09:38:55] GM: Okay, so choice time, where do you want to go next
[09:39:18] GM: Or, conversly, what do you want to do next?
[09:39:27] 1st.Fairman once finishing eating. He heads to Sarah's quarters; knocks and drops a datapad in front of the door. Leaving
[09:39:48] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((hrm…))
[09:40:10] CWO3 Sarah blinks at the knock, pokes her head out to look back and forth, and blinks at the pad, picking it up.
[09:41:40] 2LT Kain Crokett considers the options. ((Can we get a list of options availible to us?))
[09:42:50] GM: Sure, you have three ship locations, in space, you have ship locations on Earth, but thats way the hell out of the way, you can check in with the UEEF, Or anything in between.
[09:44:02] 2LT Kain Crokett suggests going for the first of the ship locations gotten from the Doge. Sending a coded burst comm to the UEEF and the Aquila Colony to report status.
[09:44:05] 1st.Fairman has sent you a tree node…
[09:46:25] 2LT Komillia Maeless agrees with Kain.
[09:46:35] GM: Of course she does!
[09:46:38] CWO3 Sarah sighs softly as she looks at the pad, looking own.
[09:46:39] GM: lol
[09:47:08] 2Lt. Aylanea just shrugs and agrees as well. No point waiting after all, to her.
[09:47:42] GM: You send the messages out, the UEEF will get their copy moths before the Aquila colony does.
[09:47:48] GM: months too
[09:48:37] 1st.Fairman doesn't weigh in with a pick as he isolates himself with music and reading the information
[09:49:24] CWO3 Sarah blinks at the discussion and just shrugs, nodding.
[09:49:30] GM: You fold out, and into an uncharted system. the CAG orders her planes into the air for CAP duties and send out her recon birds.
[09:50:00] GM: The ships able sensors are able to locate the mothership in due time and you change course towards it.
[09:50:42] GM: The planet has one life sustaining world.
[09:51:07] GM: The masters mothership when found is a derlict, devoid of power and life.
[09:52:40] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((any signs of habitation around it?))
[09:52:51] GM: The ship?
[09:52:53] GM: no
[09:53:01] GM: The planet, yes
[09:53:38] GM: The CAG redies a flight plan for an overflight if requested.
[09:54:06] 1st.Fairman finally arrives to see the planet and ship. (any heat signatures?)
[09:54:20] GM: on the ship, no
[09:54:35] CWO3 Sarah looks at the derilect. "Hmm… empty. Wonder if they gutted the inside.e"
[09:54:58] 2LT Kain Crokett requests the overflight. [1d20+1] => [6,1] = (7) PERC [1d100] => [71] = (71) vs 63 Intell from any information gathered.
[09:55:21] 1st.Fairman is in the power armor still, replying to Sarah "Good possibility"
[09:55:21] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((you know its my birthday, would it kill the RNG to give me some good rolls?))
[09:55:31] GM: never!
[09:56:04] GM: the CAG sends her recon flight out (Deltas) and they do a sweep over the planet.
[09:56:17] GM: (she flies the mission herself with her wingman)
[09:56:21] CWO3 Sarah glances over to Jaron and Kain. "If they were building a colony, they probably needed whatever material they could get…" She makes a face. "Wonder if the book was taken page by page for that as well…" she shivers. "If so, we might need to just take images of it. Can't be stealing someone's walls."
[09:56:27] GM: [2d100] => [7,96] = (103) intell
[09:58:36] 1st.Fairman: "I dont know about a colony but pirates or such probably stripped it"
[09:59:34] GM: The planetary overflight comes back with the following. The planet is sparsly populated, maybe 3 to 4 thousand folks, tops, all tiresian, there is scant tech, and the society is agrarian. The overflight of the populated areas were met with the populace scattering to the four winds to shelter. There are three settlements, one walled, and photorecon points to repair work to the battlements, repairs to high yield weaponry,
[09:59:36] 2LT Kain Crokett: Assuming they found it, space is huge, and like or not, it's easy to skip a star system when your exploring or even searching for things.
[10:00:41] 1st.Fairman: Settlements distance from the mothership?
[10:00:50] GM: for all intents and purposes, your photo recon plance may as well have overflown a settlement in 1200 Europe
[10:00:56] CWO3 Sarah listens quietly to the overflight report.
[10:00:59] GM: Mother ship is in space,
[10:01:22] GM: and not even orbiting the settled world
[10:01:35] 1st.Fairman: (yea; was wondering that)
[10:02:53] GM: the ship…
[10:03:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( oh. ))
[10:03:07] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:03:09] GM: well, first I'll wait on actions
[10:03:12] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[10:03:25] GM: dont wanna skip over something
[10:03:39] 2LT Kain Crokett: I suggest we go over their in mecha and look over the place.
[10:04:04] Sgt. Summerwind: The ship of the settlements?
[10:04:04] CWO3 Sarah looks over. "Well, dead and floating. Obviously we'll need cyclones, and if everything is off, we have any of those space ones along?" She ponders.
[10:04:20] Sgt. Summerwind: We prolly scared teh collective shit out of them with the fly over.
[10:04:22] Sgt. Summerwind snickers
[10:04:33] Sgt. Summerwind: Would have paid money to see the looks on their faces though.
[10:04:44] CWO3 Sarah laughs a little. "Meanie."
[10:04:53] Sgt. Summerwind: AIEEE big metal bird that roars!
[10:04:55] Sgt. Summerwind laughs
[10:05:31] 2LT Kain Crokett: The ship?
[10:05:32] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs as well. "Goofball."
[10:05:47] 1st.Fairman isnt laughing "Do we have any Radus onboard?'
[10:06:10] CWO3 Sarah: (( I just asked that. lol :p ))
[10:06:15] 2LT Kain Crokett: Er, we could probably use full-scale mecha. Mothership hallways aren't ususally small.
[10:06:47] CWO3 Sarah hmms at that. "Well, the one book we found in its little nook had narrower hallways…" She ponders that.
[10:07:30] GM: The recon flight does a pass around teh ship and finds it a derilict. A quick forey inside shows the city area abandoned and devoid of life support. Gnarled husks of petrified and flash frozen foliage and ruins of dwellings are all that remain, no light but from the recon crafts spotlights. and the place is filled with floating debris.
[10:08:01] GM: The recon flight returns.
[10:08:30] 1st.Fairman tries to find the location of where the bookstore was when they went inside for the book
[10:09:48] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): It is like a ghost town in there.
[10:09:48] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Like a tomb.
[10:09:49] 2LT Kain Crokett: Never been one for haunted houses.
[10:10:03] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Kain, my Gamma's 3 and 4 are on stand by if you want escorts. Get with Mitchell in PriFly if you need to task them.
[10:10:38] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) closes the channel and returns to Picket duty.
[10:11:16] CWO3 Sarah shrugs just a little bit. "Haunted. That's silly… No such thing as a haunting, I thought."
[10:11:18] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((AFK))
[10:11:41] Sgt. Summerwind: OOOooOOoOOOooOOOoOOOooooO
[10:11:54] GM: ((Ghost noises))
[10:13:04] 1st.Fairman: "anyways; lets plan an entry point and go from there"
[10:13:41] 2Lt. Aylanea laughs and tickles Anji. "You're really silly, y'know that?" She grins.
[10:15:14] 2Lt. Aylanea stretches out. "Suppose we can make one if there isn't one, with the Alphas." She shrugs and smiles, glancing about. "I'm assuming we're taking them over if we're going full size, yes?"
[10:15:59] 2LT Kain Crokett: Makes sense to me, besides they carry Cycs if we do need them.
[10:16:01] 1st.Fairman: "We can take them over but probably have to go cyclone to get into places"
[10:16:09] GM: everyone thats going in roll me a d20, and then whatever skills you think relevant
[10:16:34] 2Lt. Aylanea glances to Jaron. "We'll see when we get there I guess."

[10:28:54] 1st.Fairman: .
[10:29:02] GM: Okay, results, after about 5 hours of searching, both in mecha and cycs for the samll hard to get places, you locate where the book , used to be, it looks as if it had been taken, best guess, about a year ago, and required cutting tools to punch thru the doors. Komi and Ay, with your percs you note the tell tales of Haydonite activity. And in the spirit of Halloween, the d20 I asked for was HF roll, 10 being the target, so, Sarah, Jaron, and Ay, at somepoint baord the creey ghost ship, you end up scaring yourself, either by panning your spotlights over seomething that creates a scary shadow, turning a corner and seeing a frozen corpse, a loud pop of feedback you werent expecting in an otherwise dead quiet area, Ay, with your 1, you wind up scaring yourself to the point you actually let loose a burst with your gunpod, and will likely need a new flight suit.
[10:30:13] GM: …aboard the creepy…
[10:30:46] CWO3 Sarah: (( hey, I made a 10 :p ))
[10:30:48] CWO3 Sarah: (( rar ))
[10:30:52] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:30:54] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[10:31:14] CWO3 Sarah: (( Ay… yeah. peeing herself and shooting at nothing. ))
[10:31:45] GM: well, you guys put the notion into your head about haunted hips, and well, your mind played tricks on you
[10:31:52] GM: ships
[10:32:15] GM: plus, a ship that big…BOUND to be some creepy ass shit in there…
[10:33:08] 2LT Kain Crokett laughing, "Ay, next time, use missiles to kill shadows. It might get the others to wet themselves.
[10:33:44] 2LT Komillia Maeless: But looks like the Haydonites beat us here…
[10:34:26] 1st.Fairman sighes and rolls his eyes "Well this is a bust. Unless this is something else of importance or salvageable"
[10:34:37] 1st.Fairman: (this=there)
[10:34:50] 2Lt. Aylanea muttergrumbles. "I was sure I saw soimething, dangit!" She sighs at Komi's comment. "Yeah…" she looks around.
[10:35:04] GM: Well if you are looking for soemthing specific to loot off the dead ship, tell me, and make a roll
[10:35:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( an intact terminator armor maybe, without a missing arm? :) ))
[10:35:31] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehe ))
[10:35:52] 1st.Fairman checks is cache locations in relation to their old home.
[10:36:10] 1st.Fairman: perception [1d20+4] => [20,4] = (24); detect concealment [1d100] => [90] = (90) vs 80
[10:36:24] 2LT Komillia Maeless looks for any mecha weapons or Protoculture stores. [1d20] => [2] = (2) PERC, [1d100] => [99] = (99) vs 70 RSI.
[10:36:40] 2Lt. Aylanea looks for armor and weapon locations as well, curious. [1d20] => [4] = (4) perc
[10:37:21] GM: Stuff that would be a gimme would be like small objects of art, stuff left behind, things like that, books, etc
[10:37:24] 2LT Kain Crokett looks for any intell on other ship locations or what caused the problem. [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2) PERC, [1d100] => [53] = (53) vs 60 RSI, [1d100] => [80] = (80) vs 63 Intel
[10:37:33] CWO3 Sarah looks for PC, equipment, anything really that might be useful. [1d20+1] => [5,1] = (6) perc, [1d20+5] => [5,5] = (10) sense PC, [1d100] => [28] = (28) detect concealment (75%),
[10:37:37] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((bloody hell.))
[10:38:00] CWO3 Sarah: (( *sicks a ghost squirrel into Kain's pantlegs* ))
[10:38:06] GM: Well, consider the following, you aren't gonna find ANY PC aboard, remember the reason the ship was abandonded in the first place…
[10:38:51] GM: whatever PC they had aboard left over was liekly burned ferrying the survivors in whatever ships were left to them to the planet…
[10:39:03] 1st.Fairman wasnt look for PC
[10:39:03] CWO3 Sarah: (( point. lol. :p ))
[10:39:18] GM: Komi and Sarah were Jaron
[10:39:49] GM: As for what caused teh problem…well, lack of PC
[10:39:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( was just checking in case a stray power cell for a terminator rifle or anything might have been left. probably unusable to age anyway. ))
[10:40:05] GM: that and the Masters that left them being grade A assholes
[10:40:58] 1st.Fairman moves to exit
[10:41:38] GM: Carter request a rabbit to go over while you all make your next choice of destination, he wants to recover items.
[10:42:03] 1st.Fairman will aid Carter
[10:42:15] GM: The Captain allows him, reasoning that the time could also be used to chart the system for the folks back at fleet cartography
[10:43:13] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:43:30] CWO3 Sarah: (( Ay would escort as well, but well, she needs to reload her mecha's gun, and get a clean flightsuit ))
[10:43:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehehe ))
[10:44:26] GM: The captain also will allow for some limited shore leave to non inhabited areas of teh surface,
[10:44:49] 2LT Kain Crokett: So who wants to go camping?
[10:44:58] GM: Just dont come in contact with the locals, the captian imposses a 500 mile buffer
[10:45:05] 2Lt. Aylanea ooohs at shore leave, scoping out beach locations, grabbing her bikini.
[10:45:20] GM: Given the size of the planet, you guys just toll about on a whole other continent
[10:45:30] GM: toll = tool
[10:45:42] 2Lt. Aylanea: "Kinda feel bad for the natives, really. getting that scared at an overfly."
[10:46:48] GM: so, you can each select a few items from the ship as take home items, depending on tastes, just let me know what they are, or better yet, use your imagination, for instance Suki could have picked up a music box, and a bronze statuete of a horse…or soemthing
[10:46:51] GM: have fun
[10:47:03] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehe ))
[10:47:43] GM: But beyond that, everything of value was taken by the Masters on their way out, and everything else that was useful is likely in those stellements
[10:49:24] 2LT Kain Crokett heads down to the surface to do some camping.
[10:50:09] 2Lt. Aylanea does a little dipping in the water, in bikini, and a little bit naked, if she's alone in it.
[10:50:16] GM: Anji goes down as well, and the others learn something about her, she is a darn good cook. Grill master
[10:51:25] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( woo @ Anji. ))
[10:51:40] 1st.Fairman might head down after helping Carter
[10:51:41] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( as long as she didn't put laxative or something to cause gas in the food, to get at the occifers ;p ))
[10:51:45] GM: Ima roll for native fauna if anything is intersting [1d100] => [6] = (6) lower the better
[10:51:48] GM: Ooooo!
[10:52:11] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((Oh crap…))
[10:52:17] GM: Been looking for an excuse for this…
[10:52:21] 2LT Komillia Maeless joins the beach fun.
[10:52:40] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oh dear ))
[10:52:46] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( fear ))
[10:53:07] GM: yay all the nekkid girls on the beach in an homage to Robotech Invid Invasion where Rook Ariel and Mint have that bath in whatever episode it wa
[10:53:12] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:53:14] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( yeah ))
[10:53:30] GM: god love old 80's cartoons
[10:53:44] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( yeah ))
[10:53:53] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( and remastering that gets past the censors ))
[10:55:38] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( so what about the fauna roll? ))
[10:55:40] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehe ))
[10:56:30] GM: as the nekkid grrls spalsh about the beach they notice that occasionally , small winged lizards (about as long as a forearm) do, much like sea birds, dive into teh water, to get at fish.
[10:57:14] 2Lt. Aylanea bounces as she plays, and blinks at the little winged lizards, raising her eyebrows. "Huh…" She watches one interestedly.
[10:57:48] 1st.Fairman eventually arrives but has a backpack and some climbing gear as he heads to some hilly/mountainness area
[10:59:02] GM: they are in various colors as well
[10:59:38] GM: they also have no fear of man, as a few are also notices snuffling about in preapols packs , smelling food items.
[11:00:00] GM: peoples (preapols…the fuck was that typo…)
[11:00:41] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( preapols. h ehe ))
[11:01:18] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks at the little things, walking over to her pack to snatch a tiny food item, and holding it out to see if one will come to her for it.
[11:01:30] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hopefully they don't act like JP compys ))
[11:01:32] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hehehe ))
[11:01:41] GM: hmm?
[11:02:11] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( remember lost world? Where they flocked people and started nipping at them, the one guy got eaten totally by a swarm of them. ))
[11:02:32] GM: cant say that I do
[11:02:47] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( aw. oh :) hehe ))
[11:03:16] GM: [1d100] => [71] = (71)
[11:03:32] GM: the lil lizard maintains his distance.
[11:03:37] GM: or hers, I dunno
[11:04:00] 2LT Komillia Maeless blinks at the winged lizards but keeps an eye on them.
[11:04:22] GM: Ishida seems enamoured of them due to the imagry and her heritage.
[11:04:29] 1st.Fairman starts to climb a suitable place for him; nothing to extreme.
[11:06:22] GM: The one or two lizards that got intoa pack rip open a power bar out of it's wrapper, and nibble on it, then spit it out.
[11:06:35] 2LT Komillia Maeless: So this place has micro-dragons. Here's hoping those aren't the babies and the mama dragon isn't going to be along shortly.
[11:06:38] GM: Then go back to hunting raw meat.
[11:06:44] CWO3 Sarah watch the little lizards curiously, blinking as they spit out the power bar and laughing a little.
[11:06:47] CWO3 Sarah: (( eek, raw meat ))
[11:07:31] GM: Jaron, you find a moderate climbe, the view is pristine
[11:08:34] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): One would make a fine mascot to the squadron, but, it would be cruel to take it form here and other a warship.
[11:08:51] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): (other = on to)
[11:09:52] CWO3 Sarah nods just a little at that. "Something like that needs freedom to fly as it needs to, it'll get restless otherwise. For all we know, they might fly to somewhere else dpeending on season as well."
[11:11:25] 1st.Fairman once at the top will pull out his mini binoculars to see if there is anything of interest
[11:13:07] GM: Not much but beautiful landscape.
[11:13:23] GM: Alien, but beautiful.
[11:13:43] 2LT Komillia Maeless: That, and we don't know its dietary needs. For all we know our food could be poisonous to it.
[11:13:55] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Hell, we could be poisonous to it.
[11:14:24] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual): Takes some pictures of it.
[11:14:28] 1st.Fairman takes a deep breath of the fresh air and takes a sight to have a small snack.
[11:14:53] Cpt Ishida (Delta Actual) takes some pictures of the odd lilttle lizards
[11:15:15] CWO3 Sarah takes a little video of it as well, curious.
[11:15:50] GM: kk, gonna call it here.
[11:15:58] GM: same bat time, smae bat channel
[11:16:03] CWO3 Sarah: (( kk ))
[11:16:39] GM: lets see, book , check, haunted house, check, fanservice, check, all in all a good night
