Chapter 6 - Act III - Part 1


[07:35:49] GM: We last left our intrepid space salvage folks in the carcass of a battered Zent flagship heading towards the lower decks
[07:36:58] GM: So let the evil…er I mean, merciful GM know what you are doing, etc etc etc.
[07:37:05] 2Lt. Aylanea pulls out the card deck she ran across in the lower area barracks, and peeks at the field camera. "hmm…" She laughs a little, seeing if she can find a battery status for the camera.
[07:37:11] 2 LT Komillia: Well, if there is some sort of giant alien that is straight out of a horror movie, I'll be sure to find him.
[07:37:32] GM: The battery of the camera is long dead
[07:37:56] Lt. Jaron radios "Sarah, do you have anything else at the moment? If not, lets take the shaft down"
[07:38:08] CWO2 Sarah keeps wandering forward herself, towards the source of the PC emission, for herself. "Nothing else, and all right."
[07:38:16] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9)
[07:38:24] CWO2 Sarah: (( to try better tracing the emission. ))
[07:38:33] CWO2 Sarah: (( and my parade of crap dice continues ))
[07:39:34] GM: the cards are numbered 1 to 66 (base three), on the face side, on the back is a Zent Symbol and writing along the border.
[07:39:49] GM: remember you DO have access to a map so…
[07:40:06] 2Lt. Aylanea takes them along, just in case Komi wants a look at them later.
[07:40:55] 2 LT Komillia tries peeking at the cards. "So we going down?"
[07:41:07] GM: Okay, in what looks like a particularly lewd act, Sarah opens up the Beta's pouch (crotch) and Ay stuffs the camera and cards up into it)
[07:41:43] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol, just the cards. ))
[07:41:57] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( well, maybe camera too ))
[07:42:08] Lt. Jaron radios "Sarah, point. Komillia drag. Lets go." ready to follow Sarah
[07:42:25] 2 LT Komillia: "Get a ROOM Roger."
[07:42:38] 2 LT Komillia takes up the rear.
[07:43:01] CWO2 Sarah laughs at the pouch opening. She then heads to the shaft, and drops tor the level she indicated on the map previously, stepping out of it once she reaches the level, trying to get a fix [1d10+1] => [2,1] = (3)
[07:43:13] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[07:43:29] Lt. Jaron: (damn, you pissed someone off)
[07:43:31] CWO2 Sarah: (( squirrel! ))
[07:43:51] GM: You make your way amidships passing banks of airlocks deigned to launch Battlpods. It seems the Zents in their efficiency sleep their troops with their mecha, right next to the hatches.
[07:45:06] Lt. Jaron: (where are we at on level 3?"
[07:45:08] Lt. Jaron: )
[07:45:11] GM: 2
[07:45:37] Jess: (back
[07:45:44] CWO2 Sarah walks onward towards where she thought the contact was, herself, still trying to sense for it. [1d20+1] => [17,1] = (18)
[07:45:55] 2 LT Komillia: Efficient, but pointless…
[07:46:22] 2Lt. Aylanea looks at it. "Pretty much, yeah."
[07:47:01] GM: now, having dropped down a level you are on level 3,
[07:47:13] CWO2 Sarah: (( coolies. ))
[07:47:26] Lt. Jaron looks around as the team moves about, being led like a puppy
[07:47:41] GM: Directly ahead of you you see the ships stasis chambers
[07:48:50] CWO2 Sarah: (( so, my 18 pick up anything more? ))
[07:49:31] CWO2 Sarah: (( once it's valid or anything. ))
[07:50:11] GM: Yes, with a good 500 feet less of height between you and the target, and all the armor plate of the deck above, you can sense the signature more clearly now, it is to the rear of the ship, and you think, one more deck, down
[07:50:14] 2 LT Komillia looks to see if the stasis chambers are online and if anyone is inside.
[07:50:18] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [1] = (1) PERC, [1d100] => [55] = (55) vs 60 RSI
[07:50:28] CWO2 Sarah: (( LOL ))
[07:50:41] CWO2 Sarah: (( *tosses Komi the squirrel* ))
[07:51:21] CWO2 Sarah marks where she thinks the signature is, the revised location anway, on the map for the next deck. "It's a deck down, if we want to look at other things first, just say, though…"
[07:52:02] GM: Komillia, tellingly the stasis chambers are all empty. Or at least the ones YOU can physically see are. There is also signs of past combat here , and chunks of glass and ice float about deceased Zentraedi Power armor and Invid Trooper alike.
[07:52:28] CWO2 Sarah: (( eep ))
[07:53:20] Lt. Jaron: "Noted, keep moving"
[07:53:40] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks around at everything while following along behind the Beta, blinking a little. "Well, I don't think there's an elevator listed as being at the rear, on the map…" She hrms a little. "We gonna go down on the forward ones, or cut through to the deck below?"
[07:54:03] 2 LT Komillia: Expectedly those stasis tubes are dead..
[07:54:15] 2 LT Komillia follows behind the rest of the group…
[07:55:36] CWO2 Sarah nods just a little bit at Komi's words and sighs softly, looking around curiously even as she follows her blip. "Yeah…" She sighs. "Lack of power and atmosphere would have killed them even if not empty."
[07:56:01] GM: Flanking the elevator is a lunge area, (forward of the elevator) and more crew quarters, (aft of the elevator)
[07:56:50] Lt. Jaron nods his mech's head in agreement of elevator
[07:57:01] Lt. Jaron: "Take us down Sarah"
[07:57:19] CWO2 Sarah nods and heads for the elevator again. "One level down, then we should be right with it, to find it…" She hops into the shaft, to get a level down again.
[07:58:00] GM: Moving forward the ever present reminder and remains of combat float. On your way to the elevators you pass between quarters, empty, and a mecha storage bay, mostly empty.
[07:58:57] CWO2 Sarah watches the sight, frowning just a little at it. "The battle here must have been insane at the time, however long ago it was…"
[07:59:08] 2 LT Komillia: Must have been one apocalyptic battle, nothing but death and emptiness on this boat…
[08:00:01] Lt. Jaron follows the blood hound "Yea." he moves some "In the next level, we'll cut through the crew quarters and then through ship systems"
[08:00:45] CWO2 Sarah blinks a little as her comment is echoed so closely. "Why Lt. Maeless, ma'am… I thought getting into other people's heads was my job." She laughs slightly then.
[08:01:01] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee ))
[08:01:39] GM: The elevator shaft is blocked by a massive blast doors (designed to close off an area regardless of what floor the elevator is actually on, in the case of the elevator being on a said floor, the elevator itself acts as the blast door)
[08:01:58] 2 LT Komillia: Sometimes the universe conspires to give two people the same thought at the same time.
[08:02:21] CWO2 Sarah tries to pry the blast door open with the Beta, if she can. "True enough…"
[08:03:07] GM: This blast door is mega Sarah, probably 20 to 40 feet thick.
[08:03:29] CWO2 Sarah: (( … eep ))
[08:03:37] GM: It does however show signs of damage,
[08:04:23] GM: mostly melee type damage from Invid claws, but with the amount of dead Invid mecha here, it looks like the defenders of this particular blast door were able to hold the line
[08:05:07] 2 LT Komillia: Should we blast it open ourselves? Or try to find a gentler way in?
[08:05:20] CWO2 Sarah glances back. "We may have to blast the door open on the elevator, the blast door is solid…" She switches the Beta down to guardian, and floats up, powering the EU-13s. "Hmm… No claw-through for the troopers and scouts there. Permission to open it?"
[08:05:23] CWO2 Sarah: (( ack ))
[08:05:33] CWO2 Sarah: (( *tickles Komi* ))
[08:06:59] Lt. Jaron: "Lets try the other elevator nearby"
[08:07:07] GM: It is likewise sealed
[08:08:03] CWO2 Sarah looks at it. "This one is damaged, we might be able to cut through."
[08:08:27] Lt. Jaron checks map for vent ducts "If they are sealed there might be hostiles there, so hold a sec"
[08:09:16] CWO2 Sarah ehems. "If there were hostiles there, I would have either sensed them, or sensed a power signature trace for their weapons."
[08:09:44] GM: The map shows some trunk lines, but most of them aren't sized for mecha passage, Cyclones would easily fit, but your mecha, not so much, the beta certainly not
[08:10:15] Lt. Jaron: "You do have a faint signature Sarah plus could be non proto as well"
[08:10:50] CWO2 Sarah shakes her head. "That's way ahead, and it's not an 'active' signature. An active signature is easier to detect. And what would it be, after all this time?"
[08:13:27] 2 LT Komillia: Reflex Furnace? Prototype weapon?
[08:14:18] Lt. Jaron: "The ducts is a direct route, shouldn't take long. Madresa can guard our mechas here along with make an distraction if we need one in a hurry."
[08:14:35] 2 LT Komillia looks for a way to lever or pull the doors open. [1d20] => [16] = (16) PERC, [1d100] => [39] = (39) vs 60 RSI
[08:14:41] GM: Might I suggest a tactics roll
[08:15:06] GM: Komillia, you do find a door control panel, but it is devoid of power
[08:15:24] Lt. Jaron: (oh forgot we had skillz…tactics [1d100] => [9] = (9) vs 80%)
[08:15:41] 2 LT Komillia: Too bad we can't jury rig this to our mech power supplies to open it…
[08:15:52] CWO2 Sarah: (Tactics [1d100] => [18] = (18) vs. 79%)
[08:15:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee ))
[08:16:09] 2 LT Komillia: ((Komi doesn't have the skill so…))
[08:16:39] GM: Jaron, you surmise that the most likely reason the doors hare shut was to keep the Invid out, since these massive elevator shafts run up and down a full 6 levels, pretty much 95% of the ship. Closing these would have most likely been done at the very onset of the battle.
[08:16:53] GM: Sarah, you surmise the same thing
[08:16:58] GM: surmise
[08:17:39] CWO2 Sarah hmms at that, and the damage. "The claw damage is why I'm looking at. It was sealed to keep the attackers out, knowing they wouldn't be able to claw through it."
[08:17:45] CWO2 Sarah: (( what I'm looking at ))
[08:18:20] GM: Or at the very least, slow them down…
[08:19:50] Lt. Jaron: "Yes. So something of important is there. I say we take a quick look via ducts"
[08:20:28] GM: As a hint, looking at the way the debris and such is here, you have a very good chance of devining how the battle unfolded, if you know what to look for (rolls etc) Each ship has their own 'Story"
[08:21:13] CWO2 Sarah looks around at the debris and whatnot, shivering and pondering it for herself [1d20+1] => [8,1] = (9) [1d100] => [22] = (22) tactics.
[08:21:20] CWO2 Sarah: (( point. ))
[08:21:50] GM: What are you looking for generally Sarah?
[08:22:19] CWO2 Sarah: (( hmm. well, looking at the debris and the layout of it, pondering it. ))
[08:22:27] CWO2 Sarah: (( meh ))
[08:22:29] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee ))
[08:22:58] CWO2 Sarah pops her Cyclone out. "Anyway, all right. You want to peek through ducts…"
[08:23:48] CWO2 Sarah: (( to be clear, there's no gravity in here or anything, right? lol ))
[08:24:10] Lt. Jaron releases his cyclone as well "Madresa, stay frosty but be ready to make some noise and blast the doors if needed"
[08:24:12] GM: a lot of Invid scout type mecha, most of them floating near the floor. all of them shattered and shot all to hell. The Zentraedi mecha are mostly power armor, and foot soldiers, as well as smattering of officer pods and Light Artillery pods.
[08:24:22] GM: Correct no gravity whatsoever
[08:24:48] 2 LT Komillia: I'll stay hear and play guard as well.
[08:24:53] 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "Yes, sir…" She settles into her mecha and relaxes.
[08:25:05] Lt. Jaron exits his alpha and maneuvers to his cyclone and radio "You sure Komillia?"
[08:25:24] GM: the dead Invid floating as they are, tells you that they were shot out of the air while the ship had gravity, and piled up on the ground, and once the gravity kicked off, floated near where they fell
[08:26:08] 2 LT Komillia: I'm not sure mine came with a Cyclone, I did kinda have to borrow it.
[08:26:16] CWO2 Sarah slips out to her cyclone, and gets it on, putting it together and locking into it. "The scouts and troopers were blasted while gravity still worked. Wonder how long after the gravity went out."
[08:26:47] GM: you do also see some large chunks of metal floating directly over the blast doors.
[08:27:02] GM: blast
[08:28:11] GM: Also note that the map doesn't give you an exact layout of the ducts, and even if, it wouldn't be for this ship.
[08:28:24] GM: as in this particular ship, not class of ship
[08:28:58] 2 LT Komillia goes up and starts knocking on the doors, "It'd be funny if the locks were failing all this time.
[08:29:16] GM: which doors Komillia
[08:30:32] Lt. Jaron moves to the duct with Sarah, sliding through the covering.
[08:30:48] 2 LT Komillia: ((The heavily dented ones, but all of them just to kill time.))
[08:30:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( heh ))
[08:31:05] CWO2 Sarah: (( plenty to kill. ))
[08:31:43] GM: Jaron, you and Sarah enter the duct work and as thought it is easily able to accommodate the tiny cyclones.
[08:31:52] CWO2 Sarah heads over to the duct, shrugging a little and trying to follow the map on it to see how to get down to the next level. "So, just get down, or go all the way to the source in the ducts?"
[08:32:44] GM: Komillia, which door, (you have a map right, just give me the room number)
[08:32:55] Lt. Jaron checks time he thought a moment ago (How long to source on bikes?)
[08:33:13] Lt. Jaron: basic math [1d100] => [23] = (23) vs 86
[08:33:29] CWO2 Sarah: (( mine isn't a bike, mine is a space model, designed to operate in areas without gravity or anything ))
[08:33:30] Lt. Jaron: (Yea I used it)
[08:33:32] GM: More then enough time, unless you want to spend a month in here
[08:34:19] GM: oh, wait, nm, thought you were asking power supply on bikes, okay, well, you don't know, if it's a straight shot, you can be there in like 5 minutes,
[08:34:24] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:34:32] CWO2 Sarah: (( *tickles* ))
[08:34:35] GM: if not, if the ducts turn into a maze then, well, considerably longer
[08:34:35] Lt. Jaron: (Ok)
[08:35:45] Lt. Jaron starts to head down the duct "that new Radus can fly right?"
[08:36:16] CWO2 Sarah nods and hits the boosters on it a bit. "Yeah, it'll fly without gravity just fine."
[08:37:46] Lt. Jaron speeds down the duct, letting the map take up a place in his HUD to anticipate the map
[08:38:06] GM: Roll navigation or any skills you think helpful
[08:39:17] CWO2 Sarah hits the thrusters and keeps following what she sensed was the direction of the trace, trying to use it as a guide beacon, even as she does. [1d20+1] => [19,1] = (20) perc [1d100] => [47] = (47) Navigation vs. 74%
[08:40:00] Lt. Jaron: (land nav [1d100] => [100] = (100) vs 68, motorcycle [1d100] => [14] = (14) vs 86, Sensory [1d100] => [24] = (24) vs 65, Perception [1d20+2] => [13,2] = (15))
[08:40:12] GM: Well Sarah, you do a good job of homing in on that power source, but you can tell after a few twists and turns that the map you have, and the layout of this ships ductwork, do NOT match.
[08:40:18] 2 LT Komillia adjusts the shoulder cannons to a lower "cutting setting and starts cutting the door to the room that the Invid seemed so hard-on to get into.
[08:40:31] GM: Motorcycle is useless Jaron, no gravity to keep the rubber to the road
[08:41:02] CWO2 Sarah frowns. "The duct map isn't right for this ship…."
[08:41:07] Lt. Jaron: (oops, just veritech then vs 71)
[08:41:29] Lt. Jaron: "I noticed. Just keep sharp"
[08:41:30] 2Lt. Aylanea watches the cutting in, curiously, trying to peek in at it. "So, whatcha think is in there?"
[08:42:05] 2 LT Komillia: Don't know, that's why I'm looking. SOMETHING had the Invid curious as hell though.
[08:42:33] GM: Komillia, you burn thru the door (takes a good minute of constant work) pushing to slug inward it floats away revealing a mecha storage bay. There are rack upon rack with nothing, but towards the rear are a few battlepods, and pair of Officer Pods, roll a perc
[08:42:42] 2Lt. Aylanea shrugs. "Curious or mad anyway. Coulda just been something left running, or someone in an armor or with an energy weapon."
[08:42:56] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [15] = (15)
[08:43:02] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks at the sight, looking around as well. [1d20] => [15] = (15) perc
[08:44:38] GM: Map wise, Sarah and Jaron, you would be near 15 on level 3,
[08:44:59] GM: Komi and Ay, the Officer Pods all bear the same markings
[08:46:13] CWO2 Sarah glances back at Jaron. "I am trying to keep sharp, in fact. Keep in mind that without Komillia, we can't read anything in the room unless you know Zentraedi." She keeps trying to home on the source, and follow whatever duct will head closest to it (or at least she hopes) [1d100] => [95] = (95) navigation
[08:46:16] Lt. Jaron moves onward, tailing Sarah "The signature close?"
[08:46:23] CWO2 Sarah: (( yeouch ))
[08:46:30] CWO2 Sarah: (( *sigh* ))
[08:47:16] Lt. Jaron: "Yea I know but we are just doing some recon, looking for any traps, fortifications or other oddities before we move in"
[08:47:22] GM: Sarah, you can sense the signature, but with that roll, well, unless you want to start blowing holes in walls, you'll either have to backtrack, or start blasting, because the duct you are in only wants to head either aft, or up
[08:47:32] 2 LT Komillia: "Odd looking pods." Komi tries to read the markings if they are actual language. [1d100] => [19] = (19) vs 88 Zent Lit.
[08:47:59] GM: The pods both belonged to the same pilot, some guy by the name of Koros.
[08:48:57] 2 LT Komillia: "I'll keep not of that." Jots it down somewhere to ask someone later.
[08:49:10] CWO2 Sarah hmms. "I sensed it stronger again just now, when trying to follow the ductwork…" She stops. "And this duct isn't the way, obviously it's going the wrong directions and back where we came." She swears softly. "We might never find it in the ducts, to be honest. Wouldn't a trap be designed for huge Zentraedi or Invid mecha units anyway? Without power, the ability to have a sophisticated trap is limited. Especially as long as this has probably been sitting here." She tries to find a new route back, though. [1d100] => [75] = (75)
[08:49:28] 2 LT Komillia moves on to another room and starts cutting there. (Room 10 on the map.)
[08:49:34] CWO2 Sarah: (( vs. 74% ))
[08:49:39] CWO2 Sarah: o/ooc wee
[08:49:42] CWO2 Sarah: (( wee even ))
[08:49:57] GM: Komillia, you find empty crew quarters. Beds all made etc, but no soldiers or bodies inside
[08:50:27] GM: One more bum roll and you duct folk are lost
[08:50:50] 2 LT Komillia moves on to cut open the next room. ((Position number {sixty} NINE!))
[08:50:58] CWO2 Sarah: (( /me holds up a d100 and shouts "will it blend! ))
[08:51:09] Lt. Jaron checks his HUD again "Maybe but races evolve or maybe someone else are there. Who knows" (Sensory [1d100] => [2] = (2) vs 65; Land nav [1d100] => [70] = (70) vs 68)
[08:51:31] 2 LT Komillia: ((It'))
[08:51:38] GM: Komillia, you open that room and see many racks, with a few battlepods and three Male power armor suits in the far corner.
[08:51:39] 2 LT Komillia: ((It's a space amoeba!))
[08:52:06] GM: No, it's Gozer the Gozarian!
[08:52:23] GM: Are you a God?
[08:52:25] 2 LT Komillia goes to cut open the bulkhead on the other side of the room.
[08:52:38] 2 LT Komillia: ((YES!!!))
[08:52:45] GM: Good answer Ray
[08:53:10] GM: Cutting thru the bulkhead you empty back out into (8)
[08:53:48] GM: Sarah, you think you went left when you should have gone up, but went right when you should have gone sideways
[08:54:00] 2 LT Komillia: ((err, I meant to cut open the one bulkhead leading to oh say, room 7))
[08:54:08] GM: The duct work is THAT convoluted
[08:54:32] GM: Oh, that's a massive bulkhead, so, that takes a good 5 min of cutting
[08:54:50] 2 LT Komillia: ((Yeah, I knew those ducts were going to be a bad idea. But I also decided to let other people figure that out for themselves…))
[08:55:18] 2 LT Komillia: ((It's not like I don't have the time…))
[08:57:01] GM: Komillia you blast thru the bulkhead
[08:57:11] GM: and see a open area ahead of you
[08:57:37] 2 LT Komillia cuts into the area marked (7).
[08:57:56] GM: This open area held a massive amount of Battlepods! massive, like over 2000
[08:58:00] Lt. Jaron takes a breath and backtrack a little "Its ok Sarah, lets just back up some." (math [1d100] => [41] = (41) vs 86; perception [1d20+2] => [4,2] = (6))
[08:58:14] 2 LT Komillia: Anyone need a spare ride?
[08:58:14] GM: Roll a strike
[08:58:24] GM: Held…past tense
[08:58:41] CWO2 Sarah peers around at it and tries to sense the trace, and figure a way down to it again. [1d20+1] => [17,1] = (18) perc and [1d100] => [39] = (39) vs. 74% nav
[08:58:52] GM: or if you want, maybe a lit roll to read the door markings
[08:59:13] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100] => [18] = (18) vs 88 Zent Lit.
[08:59:17] GM: cause, like, all these doors DO have markings
[08:59:28] GM: Missile Storage: NO SMOKING!
[09:00:03] 2 LT Komillia frowns a bit. "Anyone of you missile mongers need refills I know where to get them."
[09:00:35] GM: Jaron, you are able to back track a bit, one more roll
[09:00:43] 2 LT Komillia: And since when did non-cultured Zentraedi have cigarettes?
[09:01:33] GM: What do cigarettes have to do with culture? And, most if not ALL cultures had some form of smoking. Even if not in cigarette form.
[09:01:37] CWO2 Sarah: (( er, ooc arg. ))
[09:02:13] CWO2 Sarah keeps peering around and trying to find a way to it again, hoping she can keep hold on the trace enough to do so. [1d20+1] => [5,1] = (6) [1d100] => [48] = (48)
[09:02:25] CWO2 Sarah: (( 2nd is nav again ))
[09:02:31] 2 LT Komillia: Ya know it occurs to me if the Zentraedi had time to develop vices, why on Earth did a culture attack all but cripple them?
[09:02:31] GM: PLUS! Did you not see the Zent getting his blunt lit by a VF in the show?
[09:02:47] Lt. Jaron tries to help avoid being disoriented (math [1d100] => [33] = (33) vs 86)
[09:03:10] GM: Jaron, you are able to extricate yourselves form the maze of hell and find yourself back at the beginning
[09:03:48] GM: I still think that the minmay attack was to easy on them, the SDF should have broad cast hardcore porn instead, or hell, Lady Gaga videos.
[09:03:58] 2 LT Komillia goes back and starts cutting open area number 14.
[09:03:59] Lt. Jaron found the F9 macro key
[09:04:14] CWO2 Sarah looks around at the point. "Well, back where we started…" She frowns.
[09:04:21] Lt. Jaron: (just counting the turns and twist backwards…..more recall but math works )
[09:04:21] 2 LT Komillia: ((You realize it's been years since I've watched RT the Macross Saga right?))
[09:04:35] GM: 14 is empty Mecha storage, the racks indicate it held Battle Pods
[09:05:02] 2 LT Komillia cuts open 16.
[09:05:10] GM: Exiting the ducts you find Komillia and Ay gone, your mecha are still there and you can see fresh cut holes in most every door around
[09:05:17] Lt. Jaron sighs "Dammit, guess blind we go. Get back to your mech." Radios "Komillia, Madresa we are back but ducts were truly a maze"
[09:05:36] That's the Tab key, Dave
[09:05:41] GM: 16 isn't a room, but the stasis tube area you saw upon exiting the elevator
[09:05:56] 2 LT Komillia: Why am I NOT surprised? And where did Madressa go, I didn't see her following me."
[09:06:27] 2 LT Komillia: "But yeah, cutting through seems to be a lot faster than sneaking around anyway."
[09:06:35] CWO2 Sarah climbs back in her beta, stowing the Cyclone and bringing the engines online, powering the EU-13's again. "Now, if I may cut through?"
[09:06:49] 2Lt. Aylanea follows out from the room Komi was in first.
[09:07:05] GM: Ah, Ay was doing what to those Pods I wonder
[09:07:26] Lt. Jaron heads back to his alpha, storing his cyclone and gets back into battloid mode "Yes, go ahead Sarah, Komillia assist if needed"
[09:07:37] GM: rol damage Carrie
[09:07:47] CWO2 Sarah nods quickly and starts blasting.
[09:08:31] 2 LT Komillia: By the way, does the name Koros ring a bell with anyone?
[09:08:58] Jess: Disconnecting from server…
[09:08:58] Jess (exit): 21:08
[09:09:00] CWO2 Sarah: [((3d8+2)*10)*3)] => ((3d8+2)*10)*3)
[09:09:06] CWO2 Sarah: (( really, open ))
[09:09:07] Lt. Jaron: military history [1d100] => [74] = (74) vs 70
[09:09:09] CWO2 Sarah: [((3d8+2)*10)*3] => 480
[09:09:16] GM: Not a clue
[09:09:24] Lt. Jaron shakes his head "Negative
[09:09:25] Lt. Jaron: "
[09:09:51] GM: Carrie, it takes two blasts(gonna say #2 same damage as #1) to punch a hole.
[09:09:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( okie ))
[09:10:08] CWO2 Sarah keeps blasting then, trying to cut through it.
[09:10:13] GM: Level 4 is now accessible to you
[09:11:07] CWO2 Sarah heads into the lift to fly the Beta down for Level 4, switching back to battloid and watching carefully.
[09:11:23] Lt. Jaron follows
[09:11:31] 2 LT Komillia plays follow the Invid,
[09:11:52] 2Lt. Aylanea follows along as well, watching from her searchlights.
[09:11:54] GM: You are in an open area, you can see two corridors aft on either side of the open area
[09:11:57] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d100] => [14] = (14)
[09:12:04] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( oops, ignore ))
[09:12:10] GM: lol
[09:12:24] GM: interestingly, there is no signs of combat in this area
[09:12:59] CWO2 Sarah peers towards the corridors aft, and starts following one of them. "Looks like their barricade held up top." She walks for where the sensed signature is, trying to re-sense it, to get more feel of it. [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13)
[09:13:04] GM: although you do see defensive positions erected around the massive elevators, but they dont seem to have been used.
[09:13:31] GM: the signature is on this level, due aft
[09:15:07] CWO2 Sarah keeps heading towards it, shining her lights at everything, to make sure nothing is missed along the way.
[09:15:24] GM: which corridor did you take,
[09:15:27] GM: left or right
[09:15:46] Lt. Jaron: "Head left"
[09:15:51] CWO2 Sarah: (( probably left. ))
[09:15:52] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee ))
[09:16:00] CWO2 Sarah: (( *blush* was thinkin that anyway ))
[09:17:00] GM: you travel down the corridor for about 2 miles before you see a corroded wall ahead of you to the right.
[09:17:50] CWO2 Sarah blinks a little at the corroded wall ahead, glancing back. "Err…… what the heck…"
[09:17:50] Lt. Jaron follows and shines his light at the wall "Ummm odd"(perception [1d20+2] => [17,2] = (19))
[09:17:56] 2 LT Komillia: Who wants to bet there's something on the other side?
[09:17:58] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [12,1] = (13) perc as well
[09:18:33] 2Lt. Aylanea peeks at it [1d20] => [2] = (2)
[09:18:35] GM: The wall has a 50 foot hole and there is a pile of brownish red gunk all over the floor
[09:18:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( anything to roll on to recognize the gunk? ))
[09:20:22] GM: Jaron you do see a sign on the wall to the door leading into the room with the corroded wall
[09:20:59] Lt. Jaron radios "CiC, can you get a scientist or demo tech and take a look through our cameras here" points to the sign for Komillia
[09:21:33] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100] => [47] = (47) vs 88 Zent Lit to read the sign.
[09:21:36] Comm Transmission: Roger that, stand by one.
[09:22:42] CWO2 Sarah tries to get a sensor reading of the stuff, for herself, to see if she can see anything from it. [1d100] => [99] = (99) vs. 65% sensory equipment
[09:22:46] CWO2 Sarah: (( pft ))
[09:22:48] CWO2 Sarah: (( guess not ))
[09:22:53] CWO2 Sarah: (( *facepalm* ))
[09:23:02] GM: As Komillia reads so does a Zentraedi language qualified CIC operator. Komillia, you read the sign to say "Waste Processing" The operator can be heard snickering. "That's shit. Must have eaten it's way thru the deck plating over a few decades."
[09:23:44] GM: Behind the operator the CIC breaks out into a collection of ewwwwws and oh that's just sick!
[09:23:56] CWO2 Sarah cracks up laughing as she hears that, shaking her head a little bit. "Gross."
[09:24:02] 2 LT Komillia: Yeah, gross. Can we move on?
[09:24:14] GM: Dont get an on you
[09:24:26] Lt. Jaron: "Eewww. Mental note, Zent crap can be used as an acid. Move us out Sarah"
[09:24:27] GM: Sarah, that sig is getting big
[09:24:44] GM: OOo I rhymed
[09:25:30] CWO2 Sarah switches into guardian for a moment, and makes sure to go over the corrosive shit, touching down and back to battloid after to follow for the signature.
[09:25:43] 2 LT Komillia: ((You're NOT a poet, and you know it.)
[09:25:50] GM: Awwww /sad
[09:25:55] Lt. Jaron skips over the crap and follows.
[09:26:16] GM: I should so make you roll for that, but it is Zero G so…
[09:26:25] 2 LT Komillia does a hover over it, and keeps following the Invid Protoculture Sniffer.
[09:26:31] 2Lt. Aylanea makes a face and follows what Sarah did, to keep above and over the yucky. Yep.
[09:27:56] CWO2 Sarah keeps following for the signature, now that she's away from potential disgusting situations. "Lets take the other corridor back, to avoid that, should we?"
[09:28:06] GM: As you come to the end of the corridor you see it turn inwards
[09:28:20] GM: You passed the shit
[09:28:31] GM: which is 13 on the map level 4
[09:28:41] CWO2 Sarah follows the turn, and keeps following for the trace. (yeah, I saw. lol)
[09:29:04] GM: well rather the corridor dead ends, and turns right rather
[09:29:32] CWO2 Sarah: (( well, I turn right then ))
[09:29:40] GM: [1d20] => [20] = (20)
[09:30:02] GM: [4d8*10] => 170 to the [100] => 100
[09:30:22] GM: 340 actually
[09:30:42] CWO2 Sarah: (( eep? ))
[09:31:02] CWO2 Sarah: (( *worries now* ))
[09:31:04] 2 LT Komillia: ((Who's going to die?))
[09:31:17] CWO2 Sarah: (( me, probably, I'm in the front ))
[09:31:22] GM: I think Sarah
[09:31:27] CWO2 Sarah: (( *weeps* ))
[09:31:32] GM: since 100 is a pilots compartment
[09:32:34] CWO2 Sarah: (( any chance of an eject roll, or is this something right outa the blue? ))
[09:32:51] GM: just as you turned the corner, you were lit up
[09:33:07] GM: you can try to eject
[09:34:10] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100] => [65] = (65)
[09:34:44] CWO2 Sarah: (( plus every action point in my char if needed. ))
[09:36:35] CWO2 Sarah: (( since otherwise this is it. ))
[09:37:33] GM: Sarah, as you turn the corner, you make it a few steps and then all hell breaks loose! A line of autocannon fire impacts your mecha dead center, blows thru the folded down head, punched right thru your pilots compartment, chews thru your CVR-3 and only spares perforating you by your last ditch pull on the ejection lever
[09:38:55] CWO2 Sarah: (( through the CVR I'm assuming means it's no longer airtight. ))
[09:40:08] GM: your inner suit held, however you have taken massive damage bleed thru from the impact.
[09:40:30] CWO2 Sarah: (( eek ))
[09:40:41] CWO2 Sarah: (( how much to SDC/hp in bleedthrough? ))
[09:41:11] GM: 45
[09:41:26] Lt. Jaron is definitely surprised at the shot but rush across the opening to get a look at whats ahead. "Komillia, cover fire. Madresa get ready to get Sarah." (perception [1d20+2] => [4,2] = (6); Intelligence [1d100] => [42] = (42) vs 65)
[09:41:53] CWO2 Sarah: [45-34] => 11
[09:42:11] 2 LT Komillia fires everything she has in the general direction the auto-cannons. [1d20+9] => [18,9] = (27)
[09:42:45] GM: Jaron, you are confused. The incoming fire looks familiar. And as Komillia's fire lashes out your eyes widen in horror. The incoming fire was UEEF.
[09:43:00] GM: [1d20+6] => [7,6] = (13)
[09:43:05] GM: Komillia roll damage
[09:43:08] 2 LT Komillia: ((you only had 34 HP& SDC combined and now you're at -11? Not good. ))
[09:43:22] 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "Yes, sir…" She heads for the corridor.
[09:44:35] 2 LT Komillia: [2d8*10+35] => 75 bioroid pod [2d6*10] => 80 shoulder cannons
[09:48:49] GM: In the CIC of the Miyuki the telemetry feed of their Bioroid insertion team can be heard. "…yeah, tell that to Franklin's mother." there is laughter. Then the sounds of threat warning sensors going off. "Command we have contact!" Another voice hollers out. "Engaging!" From the CIC the duty officer yells out "Status! Whats going on down there, can you identify the target?" From inside "negative negative, CRAP! We're being fired on!" On the Yukikaze a similar drama unfolds as the Miyuki contacts her. "Yuki control we have contact inside the ship, just where the hell are your units? We have contact level 4 aft!" On the Yuki's CIC the Major's eyes bulge as Suki's face drains of all color. "Jesus! Check Fire, we have folks in that section!"
[09:49:46] Maj. Kavashera: Jaron! Come in!
[09:50:47] Maj. Kavashera: Fairman! Respond!!!
[09:50:59] Lt. Jaron peeks his head out to look at the other UEEF and radios "Reading. Sarah took the shot; had to eject. Checking her status now."
[09:51:22] Maj. Kavashera: Dammit! Hold your fire! repeat HOLD you fire!
[09:51:56] Maj. Kavashera: Miyuki control have your team stand down NOW!
[09:52:09] Lt. Jaron motions Komillia to hold and Madresa to wait
[09:52:25] 2Lt. Aylanea waits
[09:53:17] Lt. Jaron replies "We are waiting for the clear sir"
[09:53:47] GM: There is a spat of return fire in your direction before the guns go silent.
[09:54:38] Lt. Jaron peeks out to check, waving a hand out as well
[09:55:03] GM: A searchlight snaps on from the other end and illuminates your area
[09:55:10] GM: search
[09:55:40] CWO2 Sarah: (( *had her mecha lights on?* ))
[09:56:14] UEEF: Identify!
[09:56:20] Lt. Jaron moves out, motioning Madresa as well to look for Sarah "Watch yourself, she can be anywhere." (perception [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3), sensors [1d100] => [47] = (47) vs 65)
[09:56:54] GM: Due to the debris from the gutted Beta, you cannot as yet located her body
[09:57:04] GM: locate rather
[09:57:16] Lt. Jaron: "Lt. Fairman, Yukikaze"
[09:57:19] CWO2 Sarah lays somewhere, unconscious.
[09:57:35] 2Lt. Aylanea heads to look for Sarah herself then, [1d20] => [2] = (2) perc
[09:57:39] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( omg ))
[09:57:41] UEEF: Shit! Sgt. Pullman, Miyuki.
[09:57:57] UEEF: Fuck, you guys alright?
[09:58:24] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( we're all seeing squirrels, you? ))
[09:58:24] 2 LT Komillia: No, you probably killed one of our own in a Beta, Mr. Triggerhappy.
[09:58:31] Lt. Jaron stops and replies "Negative, your shot was dead on. Took my mate out."
[09:58:48] UEEF: Oh fuck! FUCK! Dammit, nice shot Weathers! you just tagged a friendly!
[09:59:05] Lt. Jaron kneels down and tries again (perception [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3))
[09:59:09] Lt. Jaron: (damn)
[09:59:12] UEEF: Sorry! I thought it was hostile!
[09:59:18] Lt. Jaron: (she cursed us all)
[10:00:02] 2 LT Komillia: Yeah, well, if it's not shooting you have a chance to look at your enemy first.
[10:00:08] Lt. Jaron since his eyes aren't working tries sensors to find life signs/thermal (sensory [1d100] => [20] = (20) vs 65)
[10:00:14] 2Lt. Aylanea keeps looking as well, frowning and kneeling on the Alpha's 'knee'. [1d20] => [2] = (2)
[10:00:19] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( wtf ))
[10:00:30] GM: As the Miyuki's team lowers their spots you can see a bioroid take the weapon from another one, most likely Pullman relieving Weathers of his sidearm, and Weathers was armed with a GAU-121
[10:00:33] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [17] = (17) Perc, [1d100] => [53] = (53) vs 88 RSI
[10:00:59] GM: Komillia, you see Sarah's battered frame float in front of your cockpit.
[10:01:08] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:01:39] 2 LT Komillia gently grab Sarah, "Got her. With permission I'll take her back to the Yukikaze."
[10:01:55] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( or her body at least ))
[10:02:04] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( don't know yet teehee ))
[10:02:11] Lt. Jaron looks to the the Miyuki team "You have a quick exit?"
[10:02:38] Lt. Jaron: "Komillia, affirmative. Check her CVR first"
[10:02:40] 2 LT Komillia: "I'll make a quick exit if they don't salvage be damned."
[10:02:56] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] => [11] = (11) PERC
[10:03:01] UEEF: Yeah, a level down. Henry, show them the way, Weahters, report to the Master at Arms.
[10:03:54] Lt. Jaron takes a breath "Thanks. Komillia if it call hold; take off"
[10:04:22] 2 LT Komillia follows Henry, after "securing" Sarah in her Bioroid's cockpit.
[10:05:01] GM: Komillia, the Miyuki pilot leads you out of the ship, you exit the carcass and are above the twin Battlecrusiers nestled inside the massive rend.
[10:05:15] CWO2 Sarah lays unconscious in the bioroid cockpit then.
[10:05:31] Lt. Jaron looks to Pullman "Have you all check the guidance system yet?"
[10:05:57] UEEF: Of the ship, no, we've been back here working on the Furnace.
[10:06:33] Lt. Jaron: "Well that pilot Weathers shot was a read on a signature there. We was heading to check it out."
[10:06:49] 2 LT Komillia: "Yukikaze, this is Hitman 4 requesting guidance to ship. Have critically injured crewman on board, request medics in hangar when I arrive."
[10:06:55] CWO2 Sarah: (( anything I can roll to start trying to wake up at any point? *giggle* ))
[10:07:21] Comm Transmission: Roger that! Patterns clear crash cart on the deck, bring her home, bay 2!
[10:07:36] 2 LT Komillia: "Roger."
[10:08:00] 2 LT Komillia proceeds to Bay 2 as quickly as is safe for the injured party.
[10:08:08] Lt. Jaron comms the Major on Yukikaze channel only "She is inbound sir. We are continuing with our task at hand with the squad from Miyuki"
[10:10:03] GM: As you make your way to the Yuki, you can see a shuttle lift off from the Miyuki and head towards the Yukikaze, you both land in the same bay. And once pressurized the crash cart comes and retrieves Sarah from your grip and you can see the Shuttle debark it's passengers, the first to debark is ranked Commander. And you figure he is the commanding officer of the Miyuki. He watches the crash team take her away and then makes his way into the ship.
[10:11:20] GM: Inside the carcass the remainder of the two teams complete the survey of the Reflex Furnace.
[10:12:56] 2 LT Komillia: I foresee floggings in the future…
[10:13:21] 2 LT Komillia looks at a random tech, "Any idea why the Yuki's Commander is here?"
[10:14:14] Technician: Well, friendly fire, Captains probably want a word with him…
[10:14:27] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100-12] => [2,-12] = (-10)
[10:14:31] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100-12] => [93,-12] = (81)
[10:14:33] CWO2 Sarah: [1d100-12] => [48,-12] = (36)
[10:14:37] Technician: That and it's good form…
[10:14:38] CWO2 Sarah: (( save vs. Coma ))
[10:15:14] Lt. Jaron asks "Was Weathers a greenie or just trigger happy?" as he looks about the area (perception [1d20+2] => [16,2] = (18))
[10:15:46] GM: Sarah, you regain some consciousness inside of sick bay, Dr Stravinsky is over you with mask on, his smock and latex gloved hands smeared green.
[10:16:50] UEEF: He's a good troop. Look, I don't want to say anything more right here, I understand where you are coming from, I really do, and I'm sorry.
[10:17:55] Lt. Jaron: "Very well"
[10:18:44] CWO2 Sarah starts waking up some, eyes widening just a little as she sees that, sighing. "What… happened?"
[10:19:11] Lt. Jaron tries to find what Sarah was sensing, hoping to have something positive here.
[10:19:32] GM: The ships massive Reflex Furnace lies in front of you
[10:19:34] CWO2 Sarah: (( probably the furnace pile inactive. ))
[10:19:48] CWO2 Sarah: (( thought it might be the PC chamber. Eh well. ))
[10:20:35] CWO2 Sarah: [2d6] => [6,2] = (8)
[10:20:47] CWO2 Sarah: (( *tries to heal herself a little, even if it takes 5 mins for the next one* ))
[10:21:18] Dr. Stravinski pokes and prods and then pulls his hands back "You see that?!"
[10:21:39] UEEF Medic: yeah! that tendon just regenerated?
[10:21:53] Lt. Jaron radios "CIC, I need a translator for our cameras. Plus any tech knowledge here to help find what we was sniffing out"
[10:21:54] UEEF Medic: Get that scanning gear in here.
[10:22:11] Dr. Stravinski: We're recording this, god, tell me we're recording this.
[10:22:44] UEEF Medic: Yes sir, we have the video feed and vitals on now.
[10:23:20] CWO2 Sarah: (( heh ))
[10:23:22] GM: Jaron, as you and the Miyuki team wrap up, Captain Reinard orders all teams to return to their ships.
[10:23:27] 2 LT Komillia: ((rofl, no dissecting the UEEF Invid. Otherwise you'll have a Zentraedi Warrior Elite coming for you in a Battlepod Augmented Bioroid…))
[10:23:42] GM: Sarah, roll a perc
[10:23:48] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [3,1] = (4)
[10:23:53] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:24:15] Lt. Jaron does so
[10:24:23] GM: All you can see is the bright lights of the surgical bed and the faces of the doctors and med techs as they work on you.
[10:24:50] CWO2 Sarah: (( too much awareness on fixing it, not enough on the situation. teehee. ))
[10:25:02] CWO2 Sarah: (( is she able to talk or anything, or no? ))
[10:25:39] GM: Meanwhile many decks above, the Captain, her XO, her CAG, and the Major, conduct a meeting with the Miyuki's Commander and CAG.
[10:25:49] CWO2 Sarah lays back and waits until she can do something more about her condition, still not 'with it' quite totally.
[10:26:19] GM: What are the others doing? Komillia, and Jaron, and Ay, (ay and Jaron, you have landed)
[10:28:17] Lt. Jaron lays down the Beta that was in tow and heads medical "Madresa, Komillia be prepared for some questions later"
[10:28:51] 2Lt. Aylanea steps out of her cockpit and looks around, nodding. "Yes, sir." She hmms. "Should I check medical? I'm guessing they may want a report from you…"
[10:29:14] 2 LT Komillia takes the opportunity, to make sure her statement is collected for the investigation.
[10:29:25] Lt. Jaron nods to Madresa "Heading that way myself so come on"
[10:29:30] GM: As if to emphasize Jaron's word, MP's with the ships Master at Arms remove the teams flight recorders and take them under guard for analysis.
[10:29:39] GM: teams
[10:30:19] 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "Yes, sir…" She turns to head for that as well, sighing as the recorders are removed.
[10:31:13] GM: Jaron and Komillia make their way to the sick bay, Sarah is on the surgical bed in the center being worked on, and Suki is standing nearby. As close as she can, but still avoid being underfoot.
[10:31:37] CWO2 Sarah: (( can I try fixing myself some again? ))
[10:31:46] CWO2 Sarah: (( Ay was heading to sick bay as well ))
[10:31:47] GM: sure
[10:31:51] CWO2 Sarah: [2d6] => [3,6] = (9)
[10:31:52] GM: okay
[10:31:58] CWO2 Sarah: (( there's all the hp, now it's just SDC ))
[10:31:59] GM: you three arrive at the same time
[10:32:06] GM: Okay, you are out of HP hell
[10:32:37] 2 LT Komillia: Well, at least the lovebirds can share a sickbed…
[10:33:09] 2Lt. Aylanea snickers at that.
[10:34:03] Lt. Jaron watches in amazement as Sarah heals
[10:34:15] Lt. Ishida looks over at the remark, and wipes a tear then looks back at the bed.
[10:34:17] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( probably not quite visible yet, she's fixing internal damage presently ))
[10:34:53] UEEF Medic: Good work Dr.! She's stable.
[10:34:58] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( with HP hell over, tho, she should be able to heal the rest up soon. ))
[10:35:10] Dr. Stravinski: Me? hell, I don't know what the hell I did.
[10:35:49] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( heehee ))
[10:36:05] CWO2 Sarah: [1d20+1] => [18,1] = (19) perc to see if I can see/hear more now
[10:36:55] Dr. Stravinski: Her vitals, so strange. Start an IV drip and lets get some ice on her wounds. Retract the knitters and lets see what happens.
[10:37:51] GM: Sarah, you start to see more clearly, and turning your head you can see Suki, then Ay, Jaron, and Komillia standing nearby.
[10:38:20] CWO2 Sarah: (( what about hearing anything? ))
[10:38:27] Lt. Jaron puts a hand on the Doctor's shoulder "I think she will pull through." and motions Madresa and Komillia over; in a hushed tone "I don't know if they know she is an Invid, if they try anything, stop them. I'm going to see if the major has erupted yet/"
[10:38:40] GM: You can hear what the Dr. said
[10:39:03] CWO2 Sarah blinks a little as she sees everyone, turning her head. "I try to be an easy patient…" She tries to laugh just a little bit.
[10:39:07] CWO2 Sarah: (( bit ))
[10:39:13] CWO2 Sarah: (( turning her head to the doctor, rather. Gah. ))
[10:39:15] GM: And it hurts
[10:39:17] GM: a lot
[10:39:28] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee ))
[10:39:59] Lt. Ishida answers Jaron's comment. "I think the green blood is a dead giveaway."
[10:40:15] 2Lt. Aylanea looks over at the two others, then snorts at Suki's comment. "Yeah, I'd think so."
[10:41:01] Lt. Jaron heads off
[10:42:04] CWO2 Sarah flinches at the pain, trying to squirm a little and get herself healed up better if she can yet. "ow…"
[10:43:00] CWO2 Sarah: (( lemme know when I can, and I'll get healed up and we can move it off somewhere else. ))
[10:43:02] Lt. Jaron heads up to Major's officer and waits
[10:43:51] CWO2 Sarah: (( no response from the doctor to Sarah's joke, either? ))
[10:43:56] CWO2 Sarah: (( heehee ))
[10:43:57] 2 LT Komillia: Well. this oughta be fun, let me go get the popcorn-flavored arsenic…
[10:44:14] GM: Yeah, you might be able to heal up full, but the doc will want to keep you for a bit, just in case, plus, hell, how often does he get to have an Invid under his care, hell, you probably provided him with his career Doctoral Thesis
[10:44:25] CWO2 Sarah: (( lol ))
[10:44:29] CWO2 Sarah: (( will do it slowly then. ))
[10:44:39] CWO2 Sarah: [3d6] => [1,6,4] = (11)
[10:45:43] GM: Jaron, it's a good ten minutes before the Major comes back down
[10:46:04] Lt. Jaron is standing at attention when the Major approaches
[10:46:54] Maj. Kavashera walks past you into his office and motiones to the seat. "have a seat."
[10:47:17] Lt. Jaron nods "Yes sir" and does so
[10:47:29] Maj. Kavashera leans over to his desk communicator. "Top, get Madresa up here."
[10:48:03] GM: Ay, a few minutes later the 1stSgt finds you and informs you the major would like you in his office.
[10:48:17] GM: Komillia whatchoo doin?
[10:49:17] Maj. Kavashera sits while he waits for Ay to arrive.
[10:49:28] Maj. Kavashera: Helluva day huh.
[10:49:49] 2 LT Komillia sitting in the cafeteria getting some food.
[10:49:50] Lt. Jaron: "Yes sir"
[10:50:57] 2Lt. Aylanea hurries in and stands to attention. "Apologies sir. Was checking on the patient."
[10:51:01] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( eep ))
[10:51:09] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( parent, sorry ))
[10:51:34] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, so, lets here it.
[10:54:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hee. Jaron on the spot ))
[10:54:30] Lt. Jaron: "We was on a power source that WO Amdahl was sniffing out for us. Just pasted the waste processing area. She turned a corner and was lit up. Hit square in the cockpit. Luckily she ejected. I rush across, calling for Lt. Maeless for cover fire. but before I could call cease fire after see the Miyuki team, she already fired"
[10:54:45] Lt. Jaron: (power source trail^)
[10:55:02] Maj. Kavashera looks at Ay
[10:55:09] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, your turn.
[10:57:06] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little at that. "The Warrant Officer was the one following the trace, so she was on point at the moment, to guide the rest of us to the spot. Speculation, but she may have been sensing the furnace pile…" She hmms. "I was doing rear cover duty at the time, but I saw her get lit up. She had just walked into the other corridor with the lights on. Nothing else."
[10:58:24] Maj. Kavashera rubs the bridge of his nose
[10:58:45] Maj. Kavashera: So, what it looks like now is just rotton luck.
[10:59:04] Maj. Kavashera: Of course, we'll know more after the tapes are looked at.
[10:59:46] Maj. Kavashera: Okay, I see no reason to pull you off flight status right now. Of course, Weathers has been since he's the focus of the investigation.
[11:00:17] Maj. Kavashera: Take the rest of the day, decompress, and unfuck yourselves.
[11:00:33] Lt. Jaron nods "Yes sir" and stands to salute
[11:00:49] 2Lt. Aylanea nods as well, standing. "Yes, sir."
[11:01:25] Maj. Kavashera: I'll want a written account on my desk first thing tomorrow however so, don't rest up to much. The consumption of alchohol is authorized, once the reports have been completed.
[11:01:40] Lt. Jaron nods
[11:01:59] 2Lt. Aylanea nods quickly, then snickers at the last part.

[11:03:45] GM: Meanwhile. Unbeknownst to you. within the holding area of the Miyuki, a visitor pays a call on Cpl Weathers.
[11:04:49] GM: "Don't worry, when this is all over, you'll be back on flight status, and this will be all swept under the rug as an unfortunate accident."
[11:05:17] Weathers: I understand, I hit her square.
[11:05:53] Voice in the shadows: Yes, she's a lucky one. No fault of yours she survived.
[11:06:16] Weathers nods
[11:06:34] Voice in the shadows: Enjoy the vacation, as it is, it should be a few days until this is resolved.
[11:07:02] Weathers: Roger that sir. For Earth.
[11:07:09] Voice in the shadows: For Earth.
[11:07:12] Voice in the shadows leaves
