[08:57:21] GM: Okay, when we last left off you had defolded in the vacinity of a ancient mega structure
[08:57:41] GM: hope you remembered the pic, becuase, that too, is unavail
[08:57:52] CWO3 Sarah: hehehe
[08:58:22] CWO3 Sarah: looked like a giant stargate, or a cannon, or somesuch
[08:58:58] 2LT Kain Crokett: "Anyone else praying to whatever god they worship that THAT is not A Haydonite construction?"
[09:01:05] Suki: By the Kami I hope not.
[09:01:17] CWO3 Sarah frowns at the thing, looking up at it. "I'd hope not, considering how it was listed in the book. Unless it's something we can sabotage that'll disrupt them totally."
[09:02:05] Balaa is in awe looking upon a construct of a precursor race.
[09:02:46] 2Lt. Aylanea looks out at it. "Wow. Wonder if it has a place to board…" She smiles a little. "If it does, we'll need a translator to figure it out…"
[09:03:39] 2LT Komillia Maeless: So what is it?
[09:04:47] Suki: I intend to find out, Delta 2, on my wing, recon flight outboud. All othercraft maintain BARCAP positions around the VM.
[09:05:59] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[09:06:01] GM: The pair of Delta's approach the massive ring and you can hear a running update over the comms.
[09:06:10] 2LT Kain Crokett: "Copy that. Nobel take up escort positions.
[09:06:23] CWO3 Sarah nods quickly. "Acknowledged."
[09:06:44] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly. "Moving for escort position, understood."
[09:09:26] Suki: Hull is intact…
[09:09:48] Suki: Some damage, here, minor scoring,…
[09:10:04] Suki: watch for that large chunk of debris…
[09:10:25] Suki: No signs of a docking port.
[09:10:47] Suki: We have what appears to be a comm array on the far side…
[09:11:33] CWO3 Sarah hms. "Depending on what's underneath the spot that chunk is from, that might be a way in. Unless it's sealed off due to hullbreach like a ship…"
[09:12:19] Suki: I dont see any crew stations or windows, looks like this whole thing is automated..
[09:13:04] 2LT Kain Crokett tries scanning for any radio signals coming to or from the ship. [1d100] =>  = (6) vs 75 Radio: Basic.
[09:13:11] Suki: Moving to recce those large free floating..panels, not sure what to call them.
[09:13:50] GM: You are picking up low levels off the ELF band.
[09:15:27] 2Lt. Aylanea hmms at that and nods. "Unless they used holographic screens or somesuch to give outside view from any free wall." She looks around. "Depending on guess, I'd almost think it might be a weapon of some kind. Or a gateway. Unless it fires asteroids or such, weapon might not be likely…"
[09:16:28] 2LT Kain Crokett: "I've got low level ELF band signals, but nothing else."
[09:16:29] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( it's the supergate from SG Atlantis. Quick, dial out so no one can dial in! ))
[09:16:41] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( er, from SG-1 rather ))
[09:16:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( brainfail for a moment ))
[09:16:52] GM: ELF = Extreamly Low Frequancy
[09:18:23] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( k ))
[09:18:26] Suki: [1d100] =>  = (45) RSI
[09:19:36] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [18,1] = (19) perc, [1d100] =>  = (93) vs. 75% rsi
[09:19:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( ow at rsi ))
[09:19:43] CWO3 Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:19:47] Suki: Well, that didn't take long…All craft flash update, new picture, we have a trio of hostile cap ships inbounds, they just defolded about 5000 klicks out. Coming in hot,
[09:21:10] CWO3 Sarah frowns at that. "Acknowledged." she hmms a little. "So much for getting here first…"
[09:21:27] Suki: Technically we did…
[09:22:10] GM: The captain of the VM manuvers the ship closer to the artifact, to use it as cover if needs be.
[09:22:37] CWO3 Sarah shakes her head. "Not ahead enough, considering how soon they showed." She frowns at the ship moving to the artifact. "Hope that thing can take a few hits without having issues."
[09:22:48] GM: Two o the enemy ships hang back at 1000 klicks as the center, larger and ornate, vessle appraoches.
[09:23:53] Lord Valtagos the Cruel: Vermin, I greet you.
[09:24:53] Lord Valtagos the Cruel: You will return that which I seek, or, you will die.
[09:25:32] 2LT Kain Crokett responds to the incoming call, "Rustbucket, I greet you with the tradtional, 'Go to hell.'"
[09:26:09] Lord Valtagos the Cruel: So like an infant, to lash out against what they fear the most.
[09:28:55] Sgt. Summerwind tries to punch thru the enemy jamming and get a mayday out [1d100] =>  = (11)
[09:29:13] 2LT Kain Crokett: You're trying to exterminate us anyway, why should we make it easier on you?
[09:31:05] Lord Valtagos the Cruel: How astute you are vermin. Forgive me then to assume rationality. I make a counter offer; return what I seek and you may go, fail to do so, and before you parish, the lives of millions will pay for your transgression.
[09:34:57] Colonial Captain: All craft, falsh, we have enemy figters in the air, best gounf, over four hundrad from the pair of cap ships to the rear.
[09:35:10] Colonial Captain: (best count)
[09:35:47] Suki: Fair odds, I still think they need to launch a few hundrad more to make it a fair fight.
[09:35:52] Suki says on an open channel.
[09:36:55] Colonial Captain: Oh, that pissed em off, more fighters launching now.
[09:37:27] 2LT Kain Crokett: "A twist on the sadistic choice? Yeah, no. You're probably going to kill, torture and maim those millions regardless of the choice we make. So at this point, unless you have something better to say, we all know how this is going. So why don't you cut the theatrics and give us the archtypical 'This is my plan before you die' villain speech already. It'd be about as original as everything else you've said."
[09:37:29] Colonial Captain: Best hustle it back, no way we can survive against those odds, we've found the item, we can come back with a fleet.
[09:38:31] 2LT Kain Crokett switches off the open frequency and orders Nobel Squadron on a secure channel, "Affirmative, all units either land on or hug very tight to the VM. Do so pronto."
[09:38:33] CWO3 Sarah shakes her head slightly at the posturing, then frowns as the flash comes through, blinking at Suki taunting them. She then laughs slightly at the comment from Kain.
[09:38:59] 2LT Kain Crokett makes his position to be the last to land, while hugging tightly to the VM.
[09:39:18] 2Lt. Aylanea gigglesnorts at Cain's comment as well, adjusting to head for the VM.
[09:39:21] GM: As you return with gret haste towards the ship the Haydonites, not fools, realizes what is about to happen and begin to rush your position. The lead cap ship, likely Valtagos' flagship launches it's fighters and opens fire.
[09:39:24] 2LT Komillia Maeless gets her landing clearance from the tower and lands when it's her turn.
[09:40:06] CWO3 Sarah moves back to rear escort duty with Kain, making sure he's not alone covering everyone else, landing whhen her turn comes, though staying hot until Kain lands.
[09:40:43] Carter: Umm, hey guys, Not to inturrupt our pending doom or anything but, the books we have are starting to glow.
[09:41:15] Suki: [1d20+3] => [8,3] = (11)
[09:41:25] GM: Percs please
[09:41:29] CWO3 Sarah blinks at that. "Glow? Er…"
[09:41:35] CWO3 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [20,1] = (21) perc
[09:41:35] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d20] =>  = (15)
[09:41:37] CWO3 Sarah: (( omg ))
[09:41:43] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9)
[09:41:44] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (5)
[09:41:50] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((Sarah can see time.))
[09:42:04] GM: Fucktaht, she just divided by zero!
[09:42:34] CWO3 Sarah: (( yay, can I roll to upload that to the enemy, so they all error and shut down? ;p ))
[09:42:44] GM: Komi you can see a faint glow from the inner portion of the ring.
[09:44:01] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Guys, the ring is glowing.
[09:44:02] GM: Sarah, you see that as well as what appears to be some sort of St Elmo's fire effect around the VM, you also note an event horizon of sorts forming at the center of the ring. The St. Elmo's fire effect also flows up the incoming beams of energy being fired by the Haydonite cap ship.
[09:44:57] Balaa makes a Fold Ops roll [1d100] =>  = (63) vs. 50%
[09:45:20] Balaa: Oops! Sorry!
[09:46:02] CWO3 Sarah blinks at that. "Er…. what's that glowing around the beams, and around the ship? And someting is forming in the center of the ring, the ship needs to move possibly if it opens to the edges. Maybe it is a gateway…"
[09:46:11] GM: All craft in the air but Suki and her wingman (an NPC) roll a D6
[09:46:27] CWO3 Sarah: (( this is before we land? ))
[09:46:35] CWO3 Sarah: (( so ignore our landing poses, I assume ))
[09:46:38] GM: this is to see who HAS landed
[09:46:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( Kain and I were jointly going to land last ))
[09:46:55] CWO3 Sarah: (( so… ))
[09:47:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d6] =>  = (2)
[09:47:05] GM: that you two dont have to roll
[09:47:13] GM: Ay is aboard.
[09:47:35] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d6] =>  = (1)
[09:47:40] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d6] =>  = (5)
[09:48:10] GM: Kain, you are on the deck, or hugging it as teh case may be, Komi is dragging ass
[09:48:33] GM: You can see the Delta's at full burner hightailing it towards the ship
[09:48:47] CWO3 Sarah: [1d6] =>  = (2) (to see how close I'm hugging the deck)
[09:49:06] GM: Underneath you Ay and Kain, the VM lurches and you note that you are being drwan towards the center of the ring.
[09:49:24] GM: Sarah you can land on the deck, maglock if you so desire
[09:49:33] Suki: [1d20+3] => [12,3] = (15)
[09:50:01] CWO3 Sarah does so.
[09:50:32] Suki: VM, whatever it is thats happening to the ship it's happening to the enemy cap ship as well, it's lsiting, being drawn in, I can see their thruster flares, they're fighting it.
[09:51:56] 2Lt. Aylanea almost eeps a little at the listing.
[09:52:13] GM: Komi make a piloting roll
[09:52:57] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d100] =>  = (49) vs 95
[09:53:24] GM: Komi you bring your craft in, thusting upwards at the last second to compensate for the ships list.
[09:55:13] GM: As teh ships fold procedure completes the ship reaches the center of teh ring as behind you the enemy cap ship and the two others, who have raced in to assit their lord begin to be drawn in, it is unclear what occures to them as a bright flash followed by darkness envelops the lot of you
[09:55:36] GM: Roll PE checks
[09:56:04] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d30] =>  = (18) vs 16
[09:56:18] 2LT Kain Crokett: [1d30] =>  = (30) vs 19
[09:56:24] 2LT Kain Crokett: ((o.O))
[09:56:26] GM: snerk
[09:57:16] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d30] =>  = (5) vs. 17
[09:57:38] CWO3 Sarah: [1d30] =>  = (15) vs. 23
[09:57:52] GM: [1d30] =>  = (9) vs 27
[09:58:39] GM: Cutscene of sorts.
[09:58:50] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hm, guess I'll have to reach over and tickle komi awake ;p j/k ))
[10:00:06] SH_Huggins (enter): 22:00
[10:00:34] GM: Nyx, you are walking down the street, from your domicile towards your place of work, soldiers drill on the parade ground across the street, as barrage baloons, teardrop in shape waft lazily in the mid morning sun.
[10:01:42] GM: as you regard the floating defences, past them high in the sky is a bright flash, a pinprick of light, it lingers for a few seconds, then is gone.
[10:02:42] GM: Most of your kin dont notice, and the pair that did, dismiss it as a flare launched from a distant airship.
[10:02:57] GM: You of course, arent so sure.
[10:04:10] GM: Up in spaaace.
[10:06:37] GM: Ay, you awaken with a start. The insides of the bay are dark but for emergancy lighting, a few deck crew float past limply. The only sound is your heart in your ears and the scratchy calls over the radio in Suki's voice. "stations respond, this is Dealt Actual to any station, please respond…"
[10:07:49] 2Lt. Aylanea erks at the awakening, looking around at the dcrew floating past. "Oh shit…." She checks her own radio. "Lt. Madresa here. Er… what just happened?"
[10:08:14] Suki: Madresa! Whats your status?
[10:08:50] 2Lt. Aylanea: "Just regaining consciousness after whatever that was. Only emergency lighting, no gravity."
[10:09:54] Suki: Roger that, same up here, bridge crew is KO, so were all of the crew on my way up here. I think Gav is up, heard some swearing from the lab.
[10:10:40] Suki: Check on the others then head to engineering and check their status, and the status on the reactor.
[10:12:12] 2Lt. Aylanea nods at that. "I'm not a tech, but I'll try." She checks the seal on her armor, crawling out of her plane, and ejecting the cyclone quickly, trying to unfold it and get it on in the null grav. "Getting my Cyclone on, so I can get around easier in null grav."
[10:12:51] Suki: They wont fit in the corridors Lieutenant…
[10:13:19] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( thought they were designed so a cyc would fit. Or they stop that with the smaller ships? Marg. ))
[10:13:23] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hunh ))
[10:13:47] GM: ((UEEF ships are made for Cyclone usage inside, Colonial ships howver, are not.))
[10:13:59] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oh shit, right ))
[10:14:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:16:06] 2Lt. Aylanea pauses and blinks. "Er… yeah, not on this ship, I guess." She sighs and puts it away. "Forgot that, since it's never come up." She looks around, trying to use whatever zero gee training she has, to get to one of the other planes. "The emergency lights work here, at least." she moves to Kain's first, to see if he's okay.
[10:16:35] GM: Kain is unconsious
[10:17:13] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks. "Kain is out cold…" She moves to the acting exec next, to check her plane, and look in.
[10:17:23] GM: You also note that his plane had been outside last you say of it, but appears to have been stuffed inside.
[10:17:28] GM: say = saw
[10:18:17] GM: The hanger bay doors are still open as well, perc roll.
[10:18:28] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (17)
[10:19:09] GM: you note that the ship must be floating sideways, and towards a planet. Ahead of you many miles away is a blue green orb
[10:20:19] 2Lt. Aylanea peers over at the open hangar doors. "Glad I sealed my armor. The bay doors are open, if there's no power, they won't close…." She hms. "And we're moving towards a planet of some kind. one side first. So nothing thrusterwise working…" She knocks on Sarah's cockpit, and looks in.
[10:20:40] GM: Sarah a sudden noise wakes you
[10:21:53] GM: ((your armor would have been sealed anyway, remember standard operating procedure for the VM's hanger bay is null grav vaccumn ops
[10:22:12] GM: ((if the bay doors are closed then still null grav))
[10:24:24] CWO3 Sarah yeeps as a noise wakes her up, opening her eyes. "Whatwho? We under attack?" She blinks then, at Ay knocking on her cockpit, shaking her head. "Oh…" She huhs. "What happened?" She looks around, checking her armor's seals, and opening her cockpit, and checking her radio. "Warrant Officer Amdahl, checking in…"
[10:25:19] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:25:50] GM: You two make your way to engineering, the ships systems are in emergancy mode, so the ship in it's entierty is in null grav, but lifesupport and emergancy lighting is functional.
[10:26:42] GM: Engineering is bathed in orange emergancy lighting as well as the emergancy spotlights over the exits. the crew are all passed out.
[10:27:03] CWO3 Sarah: (( hold please, wind back a moment? ))
[10:27:18] CWO3 Sarah tries to make it to the hangar door first, to engage emergency close for it.
[10:27:25] GM: ((kk, holding and widing))
[10:27:26] CWO3 Sarah then heads for eng with Ay, yeah.
[10:27:57] GM: Roll
[10:28:17] CWO3 Sarah: (( roll which? ))
[10:29:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( *looks up and down for what to roll* ))
[10:29:08] GM: You hit the emergancy close and the door slowly shuts.
[10:29:22] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe. ))
[10:30:25] CWO3 Sarah heads to the exit and door for eng with Ay, passing by Komi's cockpit to check on her along the way, tapping it more gently.
[10:30:28] CWO3 Sarah: (( hehe ))
[10:31:09] GM: Komi indise is passed out as well
[10:33:02] CWO3 Sarah sighs just a little, and heads on to engineering. "If we can get power back on, we can fix gravity. We'll have to raise the gravity level gently, so people don't get knocked on anything, but…" She floats over to the door, opening it and moving for Engineering, with Ay.
[10:33:16] GM: poor Komi…
[10:33:41] CWO3 Sarah: (( poor Komi? lol ))
[10:33:50] GM: i guess the invid forgot she knows first aid
[10:33:55] CWO3 Sarah: (( rar. ))
[10:34:25] GM: roll
[10:34:48] CWO3 Sarah: (( she does know 'not in immediate danger' though. And with others uncon and floating in the atmosphere, well, Komi in her mech uncon seems slightly lower priority.\ ))
[10:35:01] CWO3 Sarah: (( since she's not a danger to bump into anything. :p ))
[10:35:21] CWO3 Sarah: (( not to mention, getting power back means reviving the doctor so she can help with that. ))
[10:35:28] GM: sorry james, tried
[10:35:35] GM: okay, so, engineering
[10:35:36] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh, okay ;) ))
[10:35:38] CWO3 Sarah: [1d100] =>  = (24)
[10:35:56] CWO3 Sarah: (( vs. 69, so… ))
[10:36:08] CWO3 Sarah: (( *pulls Komi out to take along* ))
[10:36:08] GM: thank you, a few slaps on teh face and a whiff of smelling salts get Komi bck awake
[10:36:40] GM: It's up to Sarah in which order…
[10:36:51] GM: wke hr up then slap her, or slap her then wake her up
[10:37:10] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Huh? Wha? I didn't do it with Cho brothers again this time, ma.
[10:37:31] GM: Dont /slap/ you /slap/ die /slap/ on /slap/ me! LIVE /shakes vigorously
[10:37:34] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *tickles Komi awake instead* hehe ))
[10:37:36] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:39:09] CWO3 Sarah uses salts and gentle shaking. Not slapping. She's too nice for that. She looks to Komi then. "Do what?" She blinks. "The ship is on emergency power only, most everyone is unconscious…" She sighs.
[10:39:52] 2Lt. Aylanea: "Not to mention falling towards a planet. Saw that before Sarah closed the hangar doors. Wakey wakey, we haveta get Engineering back going."
[10:41:15] 2LT Komillia Maeless: Then why are we still here shouldn't we be activating emergency power, or getting a mecha out to push the ship?
[10:42:49] CWO3 Sarah nods at that. "We're just on our way to do that, she just got me up, and I stopped to wake you up on the way back from closing the hangar doors." She heads for the exit again, then, motioning for the others. "We need to get it back online though, quickly."
[10:43:21] GM: Make rolls you think would be smart, and I'll move on
[10:44:29] CWO3 Sarah: [1d100] =>  = (78) vs. 80% (navigation in space/null grav, since there's no actual skill for zero g)
[10:44:54] GM: I ws thinking maybe more smelling salts on folks that are engineers…but okay
[10:45:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oh ))
[10:45:04] GM: duh!
[10:45:17] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( I'm thinkin gmore of "get from hangar to engineering at all" ))
[10:45:24] 2LT Komillia Maeless: [1d30] =>  = (17) vs 15 IQ, [1d100] =>  = (55) vs 70 RSI, [1d100] =>  = (95) vs 70 Space Survival.
[10:45:40] 2LT Komillia Maeless: ((frak!))
[10:46:28] GM: You just float in the fetal position
[10:46:36] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d100] =>  = (96) vs. 58% space survival
[10:46:39] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:46:56] GM: well its a good thing neither of you are actually in space…
[10:47:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol, point ))
[10:47:15] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( :D ))
[10:48:46] GM: okay, so becuase it's painful…you use your smelling salts on the engineering staff, and they set about restoring power, on your way forard to the bridge you are scared out of your wits by a pair of glowing eyes, before you realize it's balaa walking around the corner, on the cieling.
[10:49:34] Balaa: Oh hi!
[10:49:48] CWO3 Sarah: (( situation noted. i'll say "dno't talk typing" before I type anything long hereafter ))
[10:49:53] CWO3 Sarah: (( anyway ))
[10:50:28] CWO3 Sarah blinks at Balaa. "Any idea what exactly happened? We're suddenly over a planet falling towards it."
[10:50:43] Balaa: ((good call, not being snarky, cuase, I really dont see the status change, at all, or very rarely, and only when you are activly typing, if you are searching for words or editing, it goes back to idle)
[10:51:05] CWO3 Sarah: (( yeah :/ ))
[10:51:19] Balaa: Oh, well, thats no good.
[10:51:22] CWO3 Sarah: (( not sure what's wrong with that. Maybe we should try the new version of Traipse when beta is done, it gets rid of some of the Python stuff. ))
[10:51:50] Balaa: Suki sent me down here to look after Carter and the books.
[10:52:32] 2LT Komillia Maeless: I know the grav is out, but why are you walking on the ceiling?
[10:52:57] Balaa: I think that artifact zapped our power, the captain was talking to the engine room when we passed thru, something about a power drain.
[10:53:10] CWO3 Sarah nods a little at that. "Yeah, not good at all." She nods a little. "Whatever happened, the whole thing glowed, before dragging us in and sending us here. No way to tell if it's still outside, or if we got sent to somewhere totally different."
[10:53:17] Balaa: Oh, I can spacewalk, here.
[10:54:04] Balaa touches your forheads then pushes you down until your feet touch the deck, and you stick.
[10:54:22] CWO3 Sarah frowns at that and nods. "Great. Hopefully it can be restored enough to move the ship, otherwise we'll have to see if the mecha are still working to get out and push…" She laughs just a little, then shakes her head and frowns again.
[10:54:50] SH_Huggins: Disconnecting from server…
[10:54:51] SH_Huggins (exit): 22:54
[10:56:04] CWO3 Sarah: "If Suki is awake on the bridge, I'm hoping she's trying to wake people up there? Then we could be getting medical staff awake to check for any serious injuries."
[10:57:23] Balaa: Last I saw she was trying to get the ship strightened out, the ships docking thrusters are still functional.
[10:59:05] GM: Long and the short of it, after a few hours the majority of the crew has been revived and backup power has been restored, the main reacotr is still down, but the PPB's system works, sensors work, and gravity works
[10:59:15] CWO3 Sarah: (( heh ))
[10:59:42] 2LT Komillia Maeless: On the brightside, if this did all of this to our systems, what did it do to the toasters?
[10:59:46] Colonial Captain: Well, it looks like we are going to have a rough landing.
[11:00:42] Colonial Captain: CAG, lets get your birds off this tub, god knows what would happen to them during our reentry. Also, get our shuttles loaded with any wounded and supplies and get them outside as well.
[11:00:50] Colonial Captain keyes the intercom
[11:01:04] Colonial Captain: This is the captian, all hands brace for ballistic reentry.
[11:01:58] Suki nods
[11:02:11] Suki turns to the other pilots on the bridge.
[11:02:16] Suki: You heard the man, move it!
[11:03:10] Suki: Chief, laod the Beta's with all the supplies you can, and see that the deck crews load up as much munitions onto underwing stores as possible. the less ammo aboard during reentry the better.
[11:03:38] CWO3 Sarah blinks a little at 'ballistic re-entry', eyes widening. She nods quickly and hurries down for the hangar, trying to radio ahead for that. "Right…"
[11:03:54] Colonial Captain laughs a little at Sarahs reaction
[11:04:27] Colonial Captain: Tut tut little invid, all earth ships have ablative plating to allow for an emergancy entry, it's a required safety feature.
[11:04:52] Colonial Captain: Of course, its only good for one go…
[11:05:46] Colonial Captain: The real fun begins once we are in atmo, hopefully we will have enough power to cushion our landing.
[11:05:58] GM: Nyx
[11:06:14] CWO3 Sarah mms at that and nods.
[11:06:18] GM: It is a few days later,
[11:06:47] GM: but before I continue, anything she wants to do in those few day
[11:10:41] Febrith Nyx will ready her machines for combat, whatever that was in the sky was not likely to be friendly. She also reads up on her psychological warfare protocols. The more she can keep the enemy off-balance the better. She also digs around for anything related to any of the secret societies and high-altitude aircraft.
[11:13:16] GM: It is the high hour (noon) on a similierly cloudless day as before. Nyx isn't the first to notice but certianly not the last, as panicked cries of the populace look into the sky as a massive fireball streaks overhead the sound is defeaning and there are a series of loud booms that shatter windows all across teh capital.
[11:13:57] GM: The air raid sirens wail out and the populace are hustled towards the shelters by air raid wardens.
[11:14:49] GM: A few Ack Ack guns open fire, but the fireball is far to high, far to fast and long gone bfore the first shell is fired.
[11:17:12] Febrith Nyx proceeds to base, and assuming no orders are already been given calculates the course of the object to figure out about where it should land based on the info availible to her. [1d100] =>  = (79) vs 85 Math Advanced [1d100] =>  = (34) vs 78 Astrophysics for what an object that large likely originated and what it would do.
[11:18:08] GM: You return, and present your findings. You are thanked for your diligant work, and then dismissed.
[11:19:13] Febrith Nyx grumbles about treated like a common scientist. "Oh well, I'll guess I'll just go see what that thing was myself and what sort of havoc it caused."
[11:20:00] Febrith Nyx: ((She is a Scientist-Commando…))
[11:20:29] GM: As those words exit your mouth the Priestess advisor to your commander steps forwad and looks you square in the eye, this after your findings fix the probable impact site as the Dark Isle.
[11:21:07] Colonial Captain: You are absolutly forbidden to travel to the Dark Isle, you know better child.
[11:21:20] High Priestess: That should have been me
[11:22:19] GM: I will call it here
