Chapter 3 - Act I - Part 1


[07:35:59] GM: gimme one minute, free RP to dstart
[07:36:10] Capt. Komillia Maeless: Here ya go. Aikokushan warsuit.
[07:36:49] Cpt. Aylanea: hehe
[07:37:47] Capt Kain Crockett takes his usual spot in the cafeteria. "So how long before the REF takes over this planet? I give it 8 months.
[07:41:19] 2Lt. Sarah hmms a little at that. "Maybe. I'd rather hope they're willing to work /with/ the government though. it technically is one of their own planets…"
[07:43:05] Capt Kain Crockett: "That was kinda my point. Most of the locals have been under pirate rule so long, they will probably roll over for the "civilized" authorities.
[07:46:17] 2Lt. Sarah nods just a little bit at that and sighs. "Point. I don't know. Maybe it would be better for thewm to be kept safe for a while, until they adjust. For as long as they've been cut off…"
[07:48:29] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Beelzebub jr. keeps buzzing my head…))
[07:49:15] Capt Kain Crockett: "What best for the people and what's best for the polticians are almost never the same, and guess which one wins out more often than not."
[07:50:25] 2Lt. Sarah: "Yeah, I know." She sighs.
[07:51:58] 2Lt. Sarah: "It's the nature of poltiics, and always has been, from what I recall of things I saw on video before."
[07:53:58] Capt Kain Crockett: "So, anybody finished building that machine that changes human nature yet?
[07:58:46] 2Lt. Sarah shakes her head. "Makes me gald sometimes that I'm immune." She smiles.
[08:00:39] Capt Kain Crockett: "I don't know from some of the things I hear about the Regent, and to a lesser extent the Reges…"
[08:01:15] 2Lt. Sarah sighs a little. "Point. And the ones in the hives certainly weren't immune. I've tried to keep above it, anyway."
[08:01:23] GM: As you converse, the battle for the city is taking place with the local 'rebellion' mustering their house forces. Sapper teams from the Havoc had preceeded them by knocking out the gun turrets facing the order of battle. Predawn missile strikes have also attrited the enemies long range missile capacity to managable levels. Both sides seems to be reserving their heaviest hitting units at this point, with only a few forays of House Elite into the frey. Their outings seems timed and placed more on pilot whimsy then tactics.
[08:05:59] GM: Some may think that the Colonel has fallen into the same boat as the locals House Elite, having left the ship with an honor guard to join the House Nobles on the field. But, an asute studant of history, and, yes, politics, understand that, A: the XO being fleet, is mre then capable of handeling the ships operations with it's position to the rear of the battle. B: her presense is required to show that the REF leadership is willing to take the field as well, and isn't just all talk. C: She can better coordinate and react from the front, and D: well, okay, she wants to kick a lil as too.
[08:06:23] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lmao ))
[08:06:25] 2Lt. Sarah: (( ^_^ ))
[08:07:58] GM: On any other battle field, her and her honor guard, actually holding a REF Banner (mecha size) would be just, silly, but here, it just fits…
[08:08:07] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Whee, Elite Knights acting like glory hounds…))
[08:09:08] Capt Kain Crockett: ((so just who is her honor guard?))
[08:09:17] GM: NPCs
[08:09:53] Capt Kain Crockett: "So it seems the Captain has taken to the field. How much blood will be on her armor when she gets back? Not hers, in all probability."
[08:10:05] GM: The overhead blares to life and you are told to report to the hanger bay and man take the field.
[08:10:46] GM: ((man = take the field…caught my self in mid thought and didnt delete enough…was gonna say, man your craft))
[08:11:04] 2Lt. Sarah perks up at that. "Well, back to work for us. And I don't know…"
[08:11:59] Cpt. Aylanea heads down to the hangar as well, with the ship at the rear, to join the group.
[08:12:08] Cpt. Aylanea: (( ooh, in the VTs this time? ))
[08:12:11] Cpt. Aylanea: (( yay ))
[08:12:33] Capt Kain Crockett goes to his gamma.
[08:12:45] Capt. Komillia Maeless hops in a Skorpion.
[08:13:00] Cpt. Aylanea scurries to a Delta quickly, just in case.
[08:13:02] WO Febrith Nyx saunters up to her Delta.
[08:13:21] 2Lt. Sarah hops into her Gamma and begins preflight, quickly.
[08:14:17] GM: Your craft have been redied and you launch without delay.
[08:15:39] Capt. Komillia Maeless: "Fall into formation and let's see what is out there."
[08:15:41] GM: Your codename for this battle is Ringer Flight
[08:15:54] Capt Kain Crockett: ((that was supposed to be Kain))
[08:16:27] GM: ((figured, unless Komi wants to be 'punished' by him later for usurping command authority))
[08:16:33] 2Lt. Sarah: "Right."
[08:16:42] Cpt. Aylanea: "Acknowledged, falling into formation."
[08:17:39] Capt Kain Crockett sets up his ECM and scans the area. [1d20+1] => [11,1] = (12) PERC, [1d100] => [98] = (98) vs 70 RSI, [1d100] => [29] = (29) vs 75 ECM
[08:19:04] Cpt. Aylanea peeks over the area, and runs her sensors as well, to see if anything is particularly off. [1d20] => [12] = (12) perc, [1d100] => [46] = (46) rsi vs. 88%
[08:19:06] Lt.Col Ishida: Banner Actual to Ringer Lead; welcome to the field. Please head to the left flank and assist House Vantaal. The 'rats have sent some of their mecha on them and them alone. We believe they are trying to drive a wedge in the alliance. See that they fail.
[08:20:19] Capt Kain Crockett: "Copy that Banner Actual. Ringer Lead to Ringer squad, proceed to left flank and annihilate our pirate prey."
[08:21:36] Cpt. Aylanea: "Acknowledged!"
[08:22:17] 2Lt. Sarah: "Understood."
[08:23:06] GM: You are given a course to fly and then exacute heading north. As you pass over the field, you can see below you House infantry moving forward. A mighty cheer erupts from below as they see friendly Elite Knights overhead. (you) Arriving at the Left flank you arrive at the TOC which is a Roil Corvette converted into a flying fortress much like the one you had seen earlier.
[08:23:43] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Enemy Roil?))
[08:24:06] GM: ((TOC Tactical Ops Center))
[08:24:18] GM: ((House Vantaal's Battle Barge))
[08:24:32] GM: ((or whatever the hell you wanna call it))
[08:25:14] Capt Kain Crockett: ((It's friendly then, just wanted to be sure.))
[08:27:08] Capt Kain Crockett: "Ringer Leader to TOC, where are your bandits?"
[08:27:44] GM: Upon landing you see five Bioroids , two are guarding a pallisade while two others stand within the baily of a firebase. the fifth boiroid is on it's back in tatters.
[08:28:25] GM: Landing, or pass, at anyrate))
[08:28:36] 2Lt. Sarah erks at that. "Ouch…"
[08:28:51] LV (enter): 20:28
[08:29:03] 2Lt. Sarah: (( ohai ^_^ ))
[08:29:28] LtJG Silver: (( i have arived, sry took so long just got back from dinner w/ the family… nephiews have me hurtin :P ))
[08:30:22] GM: From the cockpit of the fallen bioroid, the pilot is pulled out by attendants as he shouts obsenaties towards the enemy lines. It's obvious that the pilot is eaither the House Lord, or one hihgly placed within the Vantaal court.
[08:31:10] Capt Kain Crockett: "House Vantaal, What assistance would be useful?"
[08:32:10] GM: The genteel albiet worried voice of the male heir (you assume) replies.
[08:33:44] Tiresian Lord: Havocii Knights, yes, thank you. The pirates have loosed upon us towering machines. Our forey was shattered only moments ago. We were >insert location here<.>
[08:34:38] GM: Pronounced Hav-OH-kai
[08:37:18] Capt Kain Crockett: "Could you describe the towering machines?"
[08:37:52] GM: Battle Suit
[08:38:23] LtJG Silver: (( SWEET… renegade ^_^ ))
[08:39:11] 2Lt. Sarah: (( eep ))
[08:39:14] 2Lt. Sarah: (( hehe ))
[08:40:04] Capt Kain Crockett: "Sounds vaguely Zentraedi. Let's go get it."
[08:40:23] Capt Kain Crockett: "Ringer squad proceed to *insert location here*."
[08:40:35] GM: Who takes point?
[08:41:16] Cpt. Aylanea: (( someone with scary dodge bonus? ;p ))
[08:41:39] GM: You know..I'm just gonna roll random for that lil snip
[08:42:01] GM: [1d5] => [4] = (4) 1 ay, 2 sarah, 3 nyx, 4 komi, 5 kain
[08:42:05] Capt Kain Crockett takes point with Nyx on wing. Amdahl has Komi on her wing, and Madressa has Lv's Ghost.
[08:42:18] GM: ((to late, Carrie doomed you all))
[08:42:29] Cpt. Aylanea: (( rofl ))
[08:42:37] Cpt. Aylanea: (( d'oh, Komigirl. ))
[08:43:27] Capt Kain Crockett: ((grrr…))
[08:43:30] GM: [1d20+9] => [17,9] = (26) [1d100] => [1] = (1)
[08:44:52] Cpt. Aylanea: (( sorrie :( Sarah can just have you on her wing. ))
[08:44:53] Cpt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[08:45:02] Capt Kain Crockett: [1d20+13] => [7,13] = (20)
[08:45:13] Capt Kain Crockett: ((well…))
[08:45:21] GM: [3d10*10] => 130
[08:45:28] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((gawdammit aliases work.))
[08:46:38] GM: Komi's Skorion takes sniper fire and the shot hits the sensor eye dead center. (100 to sensor eye, sensor eye destroyed; 30 MD carryover to Pilots Compartment.)
[08:47:37] Cpt. Aylanea: (( holy crap ))
[08:47:44] Cpt. Aylanea: (( *patpats Komi* ))
[08:48:20] Capt. Komillia Maeless roars a blood curling scream.
[08:48:25] GM: Komi, you are flying on visuals only
[08:48:55] Cpt. Aylanea swears and firelinks her GA
[08:48:58] Cpt. Aylanea: (( eek ))
[08:49:10] GM: -4 to all rolls
[08:50:18] GM: (well, unless you see the target visually…which, in your kind of mecha…well, you wanna pop open your cockpit?
[08:50:32] Cpt. Aylanea: (( rofl ))
[08:50:47] GM: (drawback of battlepods…you take out the eye, and you really do blind them)
[08:50:48] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((keeps the cockpit on…))
[08:52:20] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((AFK, bio))
[08:52:22] GM: Okay, so continuing on.

[08:53:35] GM: [3d10*10] => 180
[08:54:01] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((somebody need to roll a dodge?))
[08:54:14] Cpt. Aylanea: (( 4 is you, Komi :p ))
[08:54:22] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((bathrooms are currently filled.))
[08:54:26] GM: Komi 180 to your right foot/tail if you fail the dodge, you are -4 to do so.
[08:54:31] Capt. Komillia Maeless: [1d20+13-4] => [2,13,-4] = (11)
[08:54:58] GM: Sarah
[08:55:04] GM: your turn
[08:56:03] 2Lt. Sarah takes a moment in her mech, to get herself better combat readied (intuitive combat, shoulda done that earlier, ,I know)
[08:56:15] GM: Ay, your turn
[08:56:16] 2Lt. Sarah: (didn't think I could before combat start tho)
[08:57:00] Cpt. Aylanea firelinks her GAU and internal guns when she sees what happened to Komi, and fires a quick burst at an offending mech. [1d20+16
[08:57:09] Cpt. Aylanea: [1d20+16] => [9,16] = (25)
[08:57:16] GM: really? do you even HAVE a target?
[08:57:40] Cpt. Aylanea: (( … ))
[08:58:02] Cpt. Aylanea: (( sighk, ignore that that then. ))
[08:58:05] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((one jsut freed up, AFK.))
[08:59:00] Cpt. Aylanea scans for targets then, trying to see where the shot came from. [1d100] => [96] = (96) RSI vs. 88%
[08:59:10] GM: Nope, you have no target
[09:00:18] GM: You DO see about a dozen or so 'tanks' and four House Vantaal boiroids on the ground beneath you all blown to hell and gone.
[09:00:55] GM: Komi's turn, and I'm just gonna wiat till she gets back.
[09:01:39] GM: [1d20+9] => [4,9] = (13) @ [1d6] => [1] = (1) (adding in Sivlers ghost as number 6) and [1d20+9] => [4,9] = (13) @ [1d6] => [6] = (6)
[09:02:26] Cpt. Aylanea: [1d20+18] => [6,18] = (24) evade
[09:03:03] GM: Ay, you see a split second flash, and jerk the stick (lol) hard (LOL) and evade.
[09:03:10] Cpt. Aylanea: (( groan ))
[09:03:12] Cpt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[09:03:31] GM: Silver, need a dodge from you
[09:05:57] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((Sorry, that took longer than expected, mom was getting all hugsy. She is going in for knee replacement tomorrow morning and will be gone before I wake up.))
[09:06:01] LtJG Silver: (( shit im still playing catch up… [1d20+8] => [7,8] = (15)
[09:06:18] GM: The Ghost evades as well.
[09:06:45] GM: ((Mom hugs are always welcome))
[09:07:07] GM: ((plus, she's prolly terrified…surgury is the scary))
[09:07:58] Capt. Komillia Maeless: "Ringer ledaer, RTB, I'm flying blind. RTB, using Havocs sensors and the come to find my way back."
[09:08:16] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((request RTB.))
[09:08:29] GM: Nyx and Kain, your actions

[09:09:42] GM: Perc gives you nothing, but you pick up someething on sensors, 5 miles out.
[09:09:57] Capt Kain Crockett will look over the area for bandits. [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9) PERC, [1d100] => [20] = (20) vs 70 RSI
[09:10:00] GM: Might be your targets.
[09:10:46] GM: Kain, erc tells you diddly, but your scan confirms Nyx's readins, and your greater expertise in these matters allows you to lay good odds those are your bandits.
[09:10:53] GM: Silver
[09:11:21] LtJG Silver: (( sry up to speed now i think im manning a ghost for recon and support correct? ))
[09:11:31] GM: yesh
[09:13:43] LtJG Silver monitors his screens having the ghost fly low altitude runs to monitor things (guessing on point? ) [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2) perception [1d100] => [36] = (36) vs 60% RSI [1d100] => [12] = (12) vs 45% detect ambush [1d100] => [64] = (64) vs 30% detect concealment
[09:14:21] Cpt. Aylanea: (( *bombards Silver with squirrels ))
[09:14:31] LtJG Silver: (( yeah no doubt :P ))
[09:14:41] LtJG Silver: (( ^_^ ))
[09:14:43] GM: Well, perc = diddly, RSI picked up movement, DA tells you that there is agreat spot ahead..and that the rest of yall just walked into it, and DC, the goggles, they do nothing))
[09:15:17] GM: Komi, your RTB call is recieved by the Havoc, reply pending.
[09:15:57] GM: The enemy note the drone for what it is, and light it up. [1d20+9] => [2,9] = (11) [1d20+9] => [7,9] = (16)

[09:17:25] Capt. Komillia Maeless tries to hover in spot until reply is given.
[09:17:51] GM: ((uh, no, Komi, I'ma assume you bug out low and fast, hovering…BAD idea, really really bad))
[09:18:12] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((kk))
[09:18:13] 2Lt. Sarah trries to get a fix on the targets quickly. [1d20+1] => [18,1] = (19) perc, [1d20+5] => [5,5] = (10) sense PC, [1d100] => [38] = (38) RSI vs. 75%

[09:18:36] LtJG Silver: (( hehe excuses ! ^_^ ))
[09:18:46] 2Lt. Sarah: (( Silver, you need to dodge a shot ))
[09:18:49] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[09:19:08] GM: Sarah, you see a pair of muzzle flashes. there is no PC in range of you, but your sensors now have the target pretty much pinged.
[09:19:16] LtJG Silver: (( sry didnt see it it was burried in the mix of text that all looks alike! ))
[09:19:21] LtJG Silver: [1d20+8] => [15,8] = (23)

[09:21:29] GM: Okay, you have the targets located as well, 5 miles out, behind a low ridge.
[09:21:55] GM: Komi, the Havoc sends coords to help you out of the fight.

[09:39:58] GM: Komi, you have disengaged now and are on your way home
[09:40:13] Capt. Komillia Maeless: ((yay!))
[09:40:59] GM: You see one enemy head aaway from you zigging and zagging towards another cover position a mile or so away from him.
[09:41:13] GM: Sarah and Ay
[09:43:06] GM: oops, forgot the Ghost
[09:43:09] GM: Silver
[09:43:33] LtJG Silver: befor or after sarah and ay?
[09:43:40] GM: before them
[09:45:24] LtJG Silver launches off a volley of missiles at the target attempting to excape (6 SRM's what is the strike for SRM's off top of head? ))
[09:45:36] GM: [1d100] => [50] = (50)
[09:45:52] GM: [1d20+9] => [6,9] = (15)

[09:48:29] GM: sarah and ay
[09:48:46] GM: scratch that
[09:48:58] GM: go ahead LV, but carrie wait
[09:50:21] LtJG Silver blinks stepping back from his console his hands fixed on his controls bites his lip squeezing hard on the controles launching another volley at the next target closing his eyes [1d20+3] => [18,3] = (21) (another 6)
[09:50:43] LtJG Silver: (( you did want me to attack right? was originally just going to respond to my last attack :P ))
[09:50:43] GM: umm, you just blew up the target already
[09:50:56] LtJG Silver: (( ah ok nm then thought there was more then one ))
[09:51:05] LtJG Silver: (( then seen your post and just rolled with it lol ))

[09:52:43] 2Lt. Sarah: (( thought the targets were down ))
[09:52:55] LtJG Silver: (( thanks for the curtousy i appreciate it ))
[09:53:04] GM: As you near, or pass by, or what not the area you flushed these two from, [1d20+3] => [3,3] = (6) @ [1d5] => [5] = (5) 1 ay, 2 sara, 3 nyx, 4 kain, 5 ghost and [1d20+3] => [16,3] = (19) @ [1d5] => [3] = (3) 8 missiles each from below.
[09:53:20] LtJG Silver: (( they were i thgouth there was another :P ))
[09:53:57] LtJG Silver blinks stepping back from his console as he switches it over to AI and stares blankly at the kill (( my repost belay my last post :P ))
[09:54:01] GM: Nyx and the Ghost
[09:54:21] GM: like Jake and the Fatman
[09:54:41] GM: 8 missile at each of you
[09:54:53] LtJG Silver: [1d100] => [58] = (58)
[09:55:01] LtJG Silver: grr stupid mouse!
[09:55:16] GM: half are downed
[09:55:25] GM: no, thats the roll you want
[09:55:30] GM: well, dice you want
[09:55:35] GM: since thats counter measures
[09:55:40] GM: you cannot dodge over 4
[09:55:54] WO Febrith Nyx fires another 2 LRMS at a target. [1d20+5] => [18,5] = (23)
[09:56:18] LtJG Silver: (( keep the d100 but yeah :P ))
[09:56:18] GM: [8d6*10] => 320
[09:56:24] GM: the Ghost is obliterated
[09:56:41] WO Febrith Nyx: ((needed dodges didn;t you?))
[09:56:44] WO Febrith Nyx: [1d20+11] => [11,11] = (22)
[09:57:05] GM: well, i need something to stave off 8 missiles
[09:57:11] 2Lt. Sarah: (( need countermeasures, no dodging 8 ))
[09:57:21] WO Febrith Nyx: [1d100] => [6] = (6)
[09:57:48] WO Febrith Nyx: ((still hate the Pallaidum way of handling missiles. Very un-Robotech.))
[09:58:03] GM: [1d20+4] => [15,4] = (19)
[09:58:18] GM: [1d100] => [6] = (6)
[09:58:33] GM: nyx roll 1d4
[09:58:39] GM: [1d4] => [2] = (2)
[09:59:20] GM: nyx, d4 please
[09:59:53] WO Febrith Nyx: [1d4] => [4] = (4)
[10:00:02] GM: [4d6*10] => 190
[10:00:50] GM: Nyx, you shove out counter measures and spoof four of the inbound while your Delta's head mounted lasers swing into automatic anit missile protocol and pop two more, the other two ompact doing 190 to Main Body
[10:01:13] GM: [190-440] => -250
[10:01:20] 2Lt. Sarah: [440-190] => 250
[10:01:23] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:01:27] GM: yes, thats what I said
[10:01:27] 2Lt. Sarah: (( ouch ))
[10:01:50] 2Lt. Sarah: (( anyhows ))
[10:01:59] 2Lt. Sarah: (( whose turn? ^_^ ))
[10:02:30] 2Lt. Sarah: (( was mine once I know…. ))
[10:02:51] GM: yes, Sarah and Ay's
[10:03:47] 2Lt. Sarah tries to scan for the source of that. [1d20+1] => [14,1] = (15) perc, [1d20+5] => [8,5] = (13) sense PC, [1d100] => [30] = (30) vs. 75% RSI
[10:04:02] GM: easy enough, you just balsted right over them
[10:04:08] Cpt. Aylanea: (( point ))
[10:04:08] GM: they are now behind you
[10:04:31] Cpt. Aylanea: (( they're more mechas then? ))
[10:04:33] Cpt. Aylanea: (( nod. ))
[10:04:36] GM: yes
[10:04:42] GM: two more
[10:05:49] Cpt. Aylanea: "Engaged, countering." She whips her Delta around, and fires her fire linked guns at one of them. [1d20+16] => [9,16] = (25)
[10:06:05] GM: thought you weere in a gamma
[10:06:10] Cpt. Aylanea: (( no, I'm not ))
[10:06:22] Cpt. Aylanea: (( I specifically said a Delta when we mounted up ))
[10:06:41] Cpt. Aylanea: (( and when I pointed out she had 9 attacks, not 8 ))
[10:07:00] GM: kk
[10:07:08] GM: [1d20+11] => [11,11] = (22)
[10:07:11] GM: you hit
[10:07:38] Cpt. Aylanea: [((8d4+4)*10)+((3d8+2)*10)] => 450
[10:07:49] GM: KA BLORCH
[10:08:04] GM: Nyx and Kain
[10:08:20] GM: Nyx, you are in the middile of evading missiles from prior, so Kain
[10:08:41] WO Febrith Nyx will cover the idiot who fired on me with 10 SRMS. [1d20+3] => [12,3] = (15)
[10:08:49] GM: ((i assume thats Kain))
[10:09:08] GM: [1d100] => [39] = (39)
[10:09:13] WO Febrith Nyx: ((Nope. Wing tips can hold 5 each.))
[10:09:15] GM: damage for 5 missiles
[10:09:22] WO Febrith Nyx: ((there fore that is Nyx.))
[10:09:34] GM: ((no, Nyx was in teh middle of dodgeing the prior strike, taking that many out…takes a bit more then a second))
[10:10:16] Capt Kain Crockett: ((Now your just making stuff up.))
[10:10:16] GM: either way, lets just press on, and roll damage for 5 missiles
[10:10:30] GM: (( /shifty eyes…))
[10:10:39] WO Febrith Nyx: [10d6*10] => 390
[10:11:20] GM: Ay's shredding of her target is followed up by a five missile strike that mangles the remaining target into scrap.
[10:12:47] GM: looking at the wreckage, you now can tell what fucked komi up, the pirates ahd stolen, captured, or otherwise misappropriated a a pair of GAU-15 78mm.
[10:13:11] Capt Kain Crockett: "How did they even get those?"
[10:14:11] GM: ((well, was a long war against the Haydonites, and we werent the only unit to use em…))
[10:14:41] GM: ((and, we didnt always win our battles))
[10:16:25] GM: The city guns eventually fall silent as the House Alliance moves in. There is much confusion, a fair amount of collatoral damage, but the city is liberated, with the last pair of Roils trying to escape, only to be brought down by the waiting Havoc.
[10:18:21] GM: The city inhabitants exhault, then, start dragging collaborators into the streets from their hiding places as the HAvoc Marines are pressed into MP duty, in this case, to protect the pirates taht did surrender, and those complicit in their rule, from mob law.
[10:20:13] GM: It gets a bit touchy, but the House Alliance understand, and accept the trade off that the collaborator civilians will be tried case by case, but the pirates themselves are quickly tried and hung to satisfy the citizenry they had oppressed for far to long. ( a few are squirreld away aboard the Havoc, for trial in teh Republic,)
[10:22:43] GM: The House Alliance … politics politics unity, complete. (really dont wanna bore you) but, you get to dress all spiffy and participate in a victory parade with the Havoc airwing performing a nice slow flyover.
[10:23:30] GM: Of the frighter crew, of the 20, 6 are found dead, or were killed in teh fighting, the others are alive, none the worse for wear.
[10:25:17] GM: Awards and gratitude are given, as you recieve word that the Republic has recieved our transmission and is sending a official legation.
[10:28:07] GM: The Havoc then, packs up their kit, return Malicus to his people as a teacher and historian, and as it stands now, the head of their space program… as much contraband that was stolen by the pirates taht can be reasonably recovered is and the Havoc joins the freighter and escorts it back into the Channel and on to Corridor Point station.
[10:29:03] GM: If you remember the scene in star trek when the damaged Enterprise returns to space dock, it's kinda like that in terms of looky loos
[10:30:22] WO Febrith Nyx goes back to working on the Fold Fault problem. [1d30] => [28] = (28) vs 23 IQ, [1d100] => [83] = (83) vs 53 RSI, [1d100] => [65] = (65) vs 83 AStrophysics, [1d100] => [80] = (80) vs 83 Research
[10:31:15] GM: ((no more rolls are needed on that, only time now))
[10:32:41] GM: Kinda like this
[10:34:15] 2Lt. Sarah: (( awesome video :D ))
[10:34:52] GM: heh
[10:35:11] GM: it gets the point across
[10:35:56] 2Lt. Sarah: (( like the CGI-work and the new camera angles. ))
[10:36:20] GM: Yeah, the long shot of the approach to the station at the beginning gave a real good sence of scale
[10:36:29] GM: Silver
[10:36:34] GM: the Elder…
[10:36:50] LtJG Silver: cool ^_^
[10:37:30] GM: You have been transferred to the Northern Reaches AO, and are to report to the RNS Havoc upon it's retun to Corridor Point station.
[10:38:28] GM: The Garfish you rode in on had dropped you off, oh, about two weeks ago, and you were told teh Havoc was going to be there when you arrived…ah, the vagaries of the military.
[10:39:11] GM: You are one of the many gawkers along the promanade to see the battledamaged destroyer pull into port.
[10:39:44] GM: You even notice a … broom? affixed to a mount next to the forward airlock.
[10:39:48] WO Febrith Nyx: ((So, Nyx knows how to defeat fold faults, and only needs the resources to have the fold drives refitted or the computers updated and no fold faults will stop anyone anymore?))
[10:40:02] GM: ((no, not how to defeat…mitigate))
[10:40:12] GM: (9they can never be fully defeated))
[10:40:46] WO Febrith Nyx: ((good enough.))
[10:40:54] GM: ((faults are a game mechanic that I am not prepared to do away with, becuase it allows me to in effect present 'terrain'))
[10:41:09] WO Febrith Nyx: ((fair enough.))
[10:42:16] GM: As an aside Miss Silver, it seems that the ship has a slight bit of reknown to it, as the folks abaord station, merchies, military and Garudan frontier officials, are all very pleased to see her.
[10:42:57] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver watchs the ship roll in her arms crossed and a brow raised to her scaring " well Miss havoc looks like we have something in common, " mostly to herself
[10:44:24] GM: late and battered?
[10:44:39] GM: or round and well liked?

[10:47:14] WO Febrith Nyx: ((wait, Vittoria Silver is Mellisa Mao? What's next a Lambda driver?))

[10:47:29] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( ^_^ ))
[10:47:30] WO Febrith Nyx: ((Sorry, I am tired.))
[10:48:02] WO Febrith Nyx: ((Lambda Driver, in glorious effect.))
[10:48:15] GM: Silver V. I am assuming that you do not know bupkiss about the Havoc but what you see here
[10:48:36] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( could be worst we could be using something called a Fairy's Feather lol ))
[10:49:18] WO Febrith Nyx: ((too bad that's not animated yet…))
[10:49:33] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( yeah ~_~ ))
[10:49:48] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( oh convo… ))
[10:50:16] 2Lt. Sarah: (( anyhow… ))
[10:50:20] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:52:49] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver stares at the ship and blinks at the voice " no i cant say that i am, but in the end its just another iron space tomb… " she turns around leaning against the rail " so where are they returning from "
[10:55:29] GM: ((that was me the GM saying that
[10:55:44] GM: but hell, it works…
[10:55:58] 2Lt. Sarah: (( medium awareness as an insanity ))

[10:56:27] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( lol yeah it fits either way ^_^ ))
[10:56:33] UEF MCPO: Came in out of the Grand Cay. (fold fault region)
[10:56:46] 2Lt. Sarah: (( it would come off in game as totally utterly nuts, and be funny as hell ))
[10:57:00] UEF MCPO: Been in there putting pirates down well, since it left here four weeks ago.
[10:57:23] UEF MCPO: Least, thats what the boards say.
[11:01:20] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: " Pirates, what ever happened to the good old days when our enemy was alien "
[11:01:30] UEF MCPO shrugs
[11:01:40] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: (( more as in Alien to us not "alien" ))
[11:01:45] UEF MCPO: Depending on your race, they may well be.
[11:05:12] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver smirks " not exactly what i had ment, at any rate maybe we'll find something worthy to shoot at again befor long " she winks
[11:05:37] UEF MCPO: Eager, nice. You'll fit in with them.
[11:06:34] UEF MCPO: Anyway, once they've hard docked, go ahead and present yourself.
[11:06:41] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: " at any rate i should go mee her maybe i can get on board and check in befor her liberty rush"
[11:06:59] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver: ( ah sry that wasnt the backspace lol ))
[11:07:17] UEF MCPO: I'd wait till the rush before you try…just a friendly word of advice.
[11:08:01] UEF MCPO: No one wants a cherry aboard while they are locking things down for dockside maint.
[11:09:03] GM: yall aboard her lock your shit down, then shore leave. behave! komi! srsly, BEHAVE!
[11:09:13] 2Lt. Sarah: (( lol! ))
[11:09:56] WO Febrith Nyx: ((rofl))
[11:11:14] 2Lt. Vittoria Silver smiles " may have a point " pulling out a smoke " I already gave that away so i dont see there being much of an issue " lighting as she laughs a little. " Anyhow take care, " heading off to the docks
[11:11:58] WO Febrith Nyx: ((I'm kinda falling asleep, so…))
[11:12:23] UEF MCPO casts you a baleful gaze as you presnt a cigarette, then, snickers, his eyes twinkling knowingly as she shakes his head and leaves.
