[07:15:15] GM: On the 11th of September 2044, a memorial service is held for those lost during the Battle for Reflex point and during the Haydonite Betrayal, u until now, time has not been forthcoming to grieve and remember those who have fallen. ( do you wish to attend the ceremonies? )
[07:15:48] Lt. Ishida: Yes
[07:15:58] LCpl Summerwind: Not really
[07:17:00] 2 LT Komillia: Yes
[07:17:23] 2 LT Gamjin: Not really, but will get drug along anyways.
[07:17:36] GM: Nah you and Anji can tie one one and play cards!
[07:17:37] CWO Sarah: Yes
[07:17:47] Lt. Jaron: (yes sorry)
[07:17:50] 2Lt. Aylanea: Suppose so.
[07:19:07] GM: Your commanding officer is happy to allow you time to attend the ceremony and reception afterwards.
[07:21:54] GM: Your ships Capitan and her XO along with her senior staff also attend as a matter of course. The event takes place within the massive walls of the UES Phoenix, within the UEEF Base. The Parade grounds are the center of attention, and as you arrive in your spiffy dress uniforms, you see a multitude of people milling about, some have black arm bands, and the mood is somber, yet there is an undercurrent of hope and relief.
[07:24:32] GM: Upon the dais, you can see members of the Sentinel Council, and the UEEF leadership, you can make out General Reinhardt, and Ambassador Minmei, they are talking at the moment, and you can see a throng of other higher-ups subtly jockeying for position, trying to get closer to the pair, but, their own aides and guards are keeping the suck ups at bay.
[07:28:10] Lt. Jaron watches from his lowly position, keeping silent for the time being
[07:29:04] CWO Sarah stays near Suki as much as possible, keeping very quiet.
[07:29:34] 2Lt. Aylanea hangs around… somewhere, staying shut up for now.
[07:29:37] Lt. Ishida takes a pair of champagne glasses from a nearby attendant, Tirolian by the looks of him. She passes one to Sarah, and then, moves in, to work the crowd.
[07:35:58] CWO Sarah sips the champagne a little bit, looking at herself in the glass slightly, and proceeding to wander through, to see who all is there, listening particularly for any interesting conversation she knows anything about, to wander along and smile to people, and speak quietly to any who seem to allow her into the conversations.
[07:39:00] Random voice: …and so I tell her, 'No way!' not unless you are paying…
[07:39:08] Lt. Jaron takes a drink, wondering how many really care or its just for show
[07:39:20] Lt. Fallnya finally shows late after a last min meeting with some other personnel buttoning up her full dress uniform her ribbons and what few medals jingling as she looks about motioning and pointing as if for some one to hurry up and come on, Finally Alleria comes behind her walking slowly like she got dragged here, also dressed in full uniform but only having a few ribbons not hardly any medals
[07:40:02] Random voice: …smart move on her part, holding this, I still cannot be sure if it's genuine of just a PR stunt…
[07:41:25] 2 LT Komillia: It's kinda sad when members of military don't take time to remember their own fallen…
[07:42:13] CWO Sarah blinks a little at the random voice and what it says, raising her eyebrows just a little bit and wandering closer towards it. She blinks then and frowns at the second comment, though she wipes it off soon enough. She meanders towards the second one, considering it, and trying to use her most warm and convincing voice as she speaks close enough for the second conversation to hear. ([1d100] =>  = (43) charm 75% to be allowed into convo and [1d100] =>  = (11) trust vs 94% to be listened to at all)
[07:42:26] Random voice: …was a good buddy, can't believe hes really gone…
[07:42:58] CWO Sarah: (( erg, wow, then I didn't type what I was gonna say. ))
[07:43:02] CWO Sarah: (( I'm almost with it ))
[07:43:18] Lt. Fallnya would move over to any alter or prayer piece set up with the names going over the list nodding and praying a bit when she sees her x flight leads name
[07:43:32] Random voice: …came in inverted, launched a volley, bastard took em all out, damnedest thing I ever saw! These Haydonites, put the Invid to shame…
[07:43:47] Lt. Alleria just kinda wonders in feeling badly out of place since she wasn't in quick enough to head to earth for that day
[07:43:52] CWO Sarah: A service such as this needs to be held after a major battle, regardless of how long after it needs to be. There are far too many who lost ones they cared about in the battle…
[07:44:36] UEEF Colonel turns to the fresh and chipper voice.
[07:45:27] UEEF Colonel: Well, good for you, glad you see the use of this.
[07:45:54] UEEF Colonel: Just hope that you don't have to see it often…
[07:46:07] UEEF Colonel nurses his drink in retrospection
[07:46:48] GM: Lurana, there is a 'Wall of the Fallen' where names are posted, it is a LONG list.
[07:47:30] GM: But, you know, that despite the best effort, that names will of course be missing…
[07:47:51] CWO Sarah smiles very softly and straightens up properly for the ranker. "Trying to prevent that as much as possible, sir." With that, she smiles towards him and others, slipping back just a bit.
[07:49:14] Lt. Ishida has mingled into the crowd and seems to be at ease among the brass. Striking up a conversation with a gaggle of Captains, one Commander and the off Major she engages in a back and forth.
[07:50:05] Lt. Ishida: …hard to kill, seems tht the larger units have shielding like their capital ships…
[07:51:00] Random voice: ..wonder what will happen next…
[07:51:18] Lt. Fallnya after a light prayer and saying her peace even if he isnt listed, she wonders through the crowed nodding and bowing looking for the others.
[07:51:33] Lt. Alleria gets lost among the crowed not knowing any body?
[07:51:54] Random voice: …when we get those new Super Alphas in service then those cyberbastards will running home to their motherboard!
[07:53:10] Random voice: …lucky! I was stuck on the Moon base for the attack on the 'Point'.
[07:54:26] CWO Sarah wanders over for other conversations by now, raising her eyebrows about the one stuck on moon base, and listening quietly. After a while, she wanders up to a discussion about tactics in dealing with the new opponents, listening quietly to a group of what sounds like other pilots.
[07:55:20] CWO Sarah gets lost in the discussion there quickly enough, speaking quietly to a couple hotshots.
[07:55:43] UEEF: So, where did you see combat?
[07:55:51] UEEF the young pilot asks, looking at Sarah
[07:56:34] Lt. Jaron finishes his drink and moves out to the list of names to say his piece
[07:57:45] CWO Sarah smiles and shrugs. "Well, I enlisted after Reflex Point, I was active in service with the resistance on Earth for two years prior, including the big attack, though. They dumped a bunch of us right in with the regulars if we knew our equipment well enough. Got dragged right out for the opening act at Tirol after that."
[07:58:24] UEEF: Resistance? So, you a conscript? Or you signed up?
[07:58:54] Lt. Fallnya would prolly be coming by the soldier and Sarah by now?
[07:59:39] CWO Sarah smiles and shrugs a little. "The first initially, I'm signed up totally by now."
[08:00:30] GM: Lurana, you make your way thru the crowd, you haven't seen so much brass in one place since those damed dinner parties your mother would host. You see Ishida with a captive audience of officers just yammering away. Nearby, you see Sarah with some pilots, chatting it up with them.
[08:01:17] Lt. Fallnya would head over to Sarah preferring not to mix with brass
[08:02:15] UEEF: Excellent, good to hear, not for nothing, but while we need the manpower, conscripts, just can't trust them, their hearts aren't in it.
[08:03:02] Lt. Fallnya once approaching "Every thing good here chief?"
[08:03:14] 2 LT Komillia wonders over to the snack table to look for something to tide over her stomach growls. She forgot to eat this morning.
[08:04:32] CWO Sarah shrugs just a little about that. "My heart is completely in it, or I would not have signed up for the long haul. I'm sorry to hear that some of the conscripts have been less than reliable." She glances to Lu then. "Everything is good, ma'am."
[08:05:59] Lt. Alleria bumps into Komi in her wanderings "Oh sorry…" the small girl is rather embarrassed as she wasn't paying attention to where she was going
[08:06:40] Lt. Fallnya would make a cursory nod to the other pilots glancing to see what squadron they were with
[08:06:41] UEEF: So, what do you think, Haydonites or Invid? Who are the bigger pussies?
[08:07:23] 2 LT Komillia: Haydonites, they have to resort to cheats to win.
[08:08:05] CWO Sarah frowns and shrugs just a little bit. "The Haydonites are much more dangerous, even if they are more cowardly in the nature of their attacks."
[08:08:25] UEEF: That what I've been saying! Least the Invid had balls! Damn Haydonites…shifty, just…shifty.
[08:09:31] 2 LT Komillia: I don't know, I've heard stories of an Invid Veritech that would be absolutely scary to ever face in actual combat.
[08:10:14] UEEF: Yeah, Intel was talking about that too! Never saw one, but a buddy of mine did.
[08:10:42] UEEF: Thing had missiles and everything..
[08:10:53] 2 LT Komillia: I was a reservist at the time, but you hear things in messes.
[08:11:12] UEEF: Well, this is sure a mess…
[08:11:28] CWO Sarah almost makes a slight face of trying to hold back a laugh at the 'balls' comment, knowing what she does. She blinks at Komillia then and scratches her head. "Yikes… great. Must've been looking at Expedition equipment too much."
[08:15:02] CWO Sarah hmms. "Probably for the ones who looked and seemed human as well. Not sure what they were thinking on that, but it evidently caused defection among the ranks for thinking the leaders were nuts."
[08:16:14] Lt. Jaron moves away from the list and back into the crowd near the others
[08:18:31] GM: Some time later, the leadership of the UEEF take the podium and begin their speeches honoring the fallen, and outlying the path to come, hardship and toil will follow but with hard work and courage the UEEF will prevail. Ambassador Minmei gives the keynote speech, and honors the fallen, some names you do not recognize, others you do, such as Commander Taylor, leader of Wolf Squadron. She chokes up as she mentioned Exedore, killed in the Omicron Sector. Her personal affiliation with the UEDF hero cannot be mistaken. Her speech is uplifting, even to those with a skeptics heart, if anything, proof that her skill as a public speaker is without parallel.
[08:19:38] Lt. Jaron stills dislikes her
[08:20:18] Lt. Fallnya shakes her head possibly remembering Exedore from moms stories at least
[08:22:15] GM: The reception follows and the congregation splits by rank now, the politicos and high brass move towards their own area to talk shop and matters of state while the junior officers clique together.
[08:23:00] CWO Sarah listens very quietly to the speeches, and slips to group back with the pilots and such, especially her own squad.
[08:24:37] GM: During the reception the Ambassador breaks ranks and mingles with the Junior officers, thanking them for their hard work and dedication, it might be a PR stunt, in fact it most certainly is, but, as far as you can tell, she is genuinely thankful and does not grandstand, or politic as she meets and greets the pilots, crewman, and others of the mid ranks of the UEEF.
[08:25:19] Lt. Jaron keeps his disdain in check
[08:25:32] GM: The officers for their part are happy at her presence, and many ask for autographs and pictures.
[08:25:45] GM: Lt Ishida is among them,
[08:26:18] Lt. Fallnya stays away from her tugging jaron to sit down with her
[08:28:27] CWO Sarah doesn't really shy away from anyone, though she doesn't intentionally go anywhere near the ambassador or her group, really.
[08:29:25] 2Lt. Aylanea just hangs around with the pilots, just rolling her eyes and staying way away from the politicos and such.
[08:30:24] Lt. Fallnya: "Could be worse, could have chosen the 3 guys i remember mom talking about who first caused the Zentraedi desertion
[08:31:09] Lt. Fallnya: (assuming there still alive?)
[08:32:18] GM: The event end, and despite some reservations, and the Monday morning quarterbacking that is sure to come from the pundits afterwards the ceremony was respectful and honored the fallen.
[08:33:01] GM: Back aboard the Yukikaze
[08:34:01] CWO Sarah checks the quarters to make sure the cat hasn't shown up again and caused another disaster, first thing.
[08:34:36] GM: The cat has been good to you, (all roll a 10 sides, high roller notes the kitty sleeping on their bed.)
[08:34:41] Lt. Ishida: [1d10] =>  = (9)
[08:35:26] Lt. Fallnya: (rofl)
[08:35:48] GM: rolls and then Free RP
[08:36:01] GM: interact y'all!
[08:36:01] Lt. Fallnya: (me too?)
[08:36:02] CWO Sarah: [1d10] =>  = (6)
[08:36:09] GM: yes you too
[08:36:18] Lt. Fallnya: [1d10] =>  = (9)
[08:36:39] Lt. Fallnya: (we have a tie)
[08:36:48] GM: roll off
[08:36:54] Lt. Ishida: [1d10] =>  = (3)
[08:37:02] Lt. Fallnya: [1d10] =>  = (9)
[08:37:17] Lt. Fallnya: (9 seems to like me)
[08:37:22] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d10] =>  = (7)
[08:37:24] Lt. Ishida: still need Jaron and Komillia's rolls
[08:37:37] Lt. Jaron: [1d10] =>  = (9)
[08:37:48] 2 LT Komillia: [1d10] =>  = (6)
[08:37:50] Lt. Fallnya: (roll again pookie)
[08:37:52] GM: Jaron roll again
[08:38:29] Lt. Jaron: [1d10] =>  = (9)
[08:38:35] GM: and a roll off
[08:38:49] Lt. Fallnya: (him first)
[08:38:56] GM: hehe
[08:39:57] GM: Jaron?
[08:39:59] CWO Sarah: (( rotfl ))
[08:40:31] Lt. Jaron: (what? she forfeit for me but if another roll [1d10] =>  = (6))
[08:40:43] Lt. Fallnya: [1d10] =>  = (6)
[08:40:43] GM: roll Jess
[08:40:48] GM: damn AAGIN!
[08:40:53] GM: roll you two lol
[08:40:57] GM: this is insane
[08:40:58] Lt. Jaron: [1d4] =>  = (2)
[08:41:17] Lt. Fallnya: (why a d4?)
[08:41:27] GM: he boo booed
[08:41:38] Lt. Jaron: (why ask?)
[08:41:56] Lt. Fallnya: ok I'll go with it
[08:41:57] GM: you are rolling to break a tie, so far you've tied three times ina row
[08:42:11] Lt. Fallnya: if i get a 2 again can i shoot my dice?
[08:42:14] GM: so a D10 roll again please
[08:42:33] GM: faster you click the faster we can get moving
[08:42:45] Lt. Fallnya: d10 again pookie
[08:42:48] Lt. Fallnya: [1d10] =>  = (3)
[08:42:51] Lt. Jaron: [1d100] =>  = (26)
[08:42:55] Lt. Jaron: [1d10] =>  = (5)
[08:42:59] Lt. Fallnya: finally
[08:43:03] GM: And we have a WINNER!
[08:43:07] Lt. Fallnya: kitty is in Jaron's bed
[08:43:14] GM: The kitty is found sleeping on Jaron's pillow
[08:43:18] GM: how cute
[08:43:50] Lt. Fallnya would have given him a peck good night before stepping into her room to let him find kitty in his bed
[08:44:02] CWO Sarah: (( lol ))
[08:44:06] Lt. Jaron goes and shoos the cat away.
[08:44:28] GM: The kitty looks at you like you are weird, and goes back to sleep.
[08:46:04] GM: I think I'll make Jaron roll for a CF check
[08:46:19] Lt. Jaron ponders a moment as he prepares for bed and finally just lays on the bed beside the cat "You probably just haven't had anyone not get angry at you. Just keep the space mice away"
[08:46:23] Lt. Fallnya: (cute factor?)
[08:46:33] GM: yes, and it looks like it's moot
[08:47:09] Kittah: Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
[08:47:11] 2 LT Komillia: ((Lest the space mice steal the keys to our mecha!))
[08:47:40] GM: Any more RP here or shall I move forward?
[08:47:49] Lt. Fallnya: (guess not)
[08:47:52] 2 LT Komillia: This is going to be a nasty commute.
[08:49:38] GM: The next day, after your patrol, you land your planes upon the UES Phoenix and head to class. The UEEF brass in their wisdom, has suggested that civilian attire would be preferable, since any opportunity to avoid such a over powering military presence would be welcome, despite the fact that UEEF MP's are stationed at every intersection and area where the public gathers. It might not be much, but every little bit helps…
[08:50:41] Lt. Fallnya given its safer to pilot the plane in full jumpsuit and flightsuit would have changed in the girls locker room before heading to classes
[08:52:17] GM: As an aside, as you make your way off base towards class an MP with Anji in tow stops you and asks "Is this yours?"
[08:52:37] CWO Sarah: (( LOL ))
[08:52:42] LCpl Summerwind mutters something unintelligible and probably profane.
[08:52:43] Lt. Jaron looks to the MP and then to Anji
[08:53:00] CWO Sarah laughs a little bit at that, raising her eyebrows and smiling to Anji.
[08:53:14] UEEF MP: Command says she's part of your unit.
[08:53:27] LCpl Summerwind: Oh fuck you! Fuck all of you!
[08:53:34] Lt. Fallnya: "I dont remember that…" she checks her pda?
[08:53:46] LCpl Summerwind: I don't want to go to school!
[08:53:59] Lt. Jaron comments "If command says she says, then she is"
[08:54:00] CWO Sarah laughs even harder then.
[08:54:01] LCpl Summerwind: God damn officers!
[08:54:10] LCpl Summerwind: You SUCK!
[08:54:20] 2Lt. Aylanea shakes her head and rolls her eyes. "Silly…"
[08:54:27] UEEF MP: Um yeah, so, she's all yours, I'm outta here.
[08:54:30] Lt. Fallnya: "Ishida, silence the girl please."
[08:54:48] Lt. Ishida: Hai
[08:55:15] Lt. Fallnya continues checking her pda for recent messages of any assignment transfers to under her
[08:55:25] Lt. Ishida approaches Anji and pats her on the shoulder. "Come on. It beats getting shot ata."
[08:55:28] 2Lt. Aylanea looks over to Lu. " If you wanted, I could paddle her ass to silence her, not sure how well it'd work though.." She grins a little then.
[08:56:13] GM: Ah HA! Lu brings up a point, what are the squad assignments? HA ! I make you work now! NAYAYAYAY!
[08:57:00] Lt. Fallnya: (lol, only ones i recall are ay, Alleria, Suki, Sarah and john
[08:57:01] GM: So, talk amongst yourselves
[08:57:08] Lt. Fallnya: (and of course Komi and Gamjin
[08:57:10] GM: yes, and then?
[08:57:32] Lt. Fallnya: (don't remember any mention about the corporal
[08:57:35] GM: I need Y'all…looks at group, to tell me, who is whatsis
[08:57:46] CWO Sarah: (( *is assigned to Suki's rear end* ))
[08:57:54] CWO Sarah: (( ;) ))
[08:58:00] GM: giggity?
[08:58:18] Lt. Fallnya: Sarah is Suki's rio unless we need an extra bot
[08:58:47] Lt. Fallnya: Alleria is any body's rio but usually separate unless told who to hook up with
[08:58:57] Lt. Fallnya: Fallnya is flight lead
[08:59:05] Lt. Fallnya: Suki is kinda the XO
[08:59:23] GM: you sound unsure
[08:59:45] Lt. Fallnya: (dependent on situation, of course lu not available suki is lead
[08:59:58] GM: dependent?
[09:00:00] GM: really?
[09:00:02] CWO Sarah: (( I thought Suki 'was' the XO. ))
[09:00:10] GM: she is or she isn't, unless you had another in mind.
[09:00:24] Lt. Fallnya: i wasn't sure how flight teams were handled
[09:00:37] GM: Suki you are XO from 6 to 10 PM on Wednesdays…
[09:00:44] Lt. Fallnya: rofl
[09:00:58] 2 LT Komillia: (thinks Komi is ground lead, with her brother playing second fiddle)
[09:00:59] Lt. Fallnya: dude I'm not a pilot
[09:01:59] Lt. Fallnya: irl that is
[09:02:06] GM: Main positions, Squad Lead (which is also Flight 1 lead) XO (which is usually Flight 2 lead) Safety officer, Moral officer, Training officer (those position may be held by flight leads as well.)
[09:02:33] Lt. Fallnya: lol i know who's morale
[09:02:41] Lt. Fallnya smacks big boob
[09:02:44] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *bounces* ))
[09:02:46] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[09:03:02] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *pulls Lu over a knee and paddles* ))
[09:03:07] Lt. Fallnya: (mostly cause her big perky breasts brighten any mood )
[09:03:24] GM: Yup, she sure is the moral officer, seeing that, my moral is lifted, among other things
[09:03:36] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( Sarah's personality is probably better for morale, but… lol ))
[09:03:40] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *smacks the GM too* ))
[09:03:56] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( pervs ))
[09:03:59] Lt. Fallnya: yea its sorta between those 2
[09:04:26] Lt. Fallnya: training seems to bounce depending on situation when we grab some newbie between lu and Suki
[09:05:01] Lt. Ishida cackles Excellent! i will train you ALL! NYAHAHAHA
[09:05:03] Lt. Fallnya: safety
[09:05:13] Lt. Fallnya: Jaron id say
[09:05:39] Lt. Fallnya: btw
[09:05:47] Lt. Fallnya: who out of the group has lost the fewest planes?
[09:05:52] Lt. Fallnya: im thinking Jaron
[09:05:52] GM: Suki
[09:06:03] Lt. Fallnya: hasn't Suki lost 2?
[09:06:14] GM: Suki still has her original bird she flew into RP with
[09:06:27] CWO Sarah: (( lol. ))
[09:06:29] Lt. Fallnya: i coulda swore hers was switched out
[09:06:31] GM: it just has a new leg now…
[09:06:35] CWO Sarah: (( I'm the least lucky. ))
[09:06:46] Lt. Fallnya: yea no kidding
[09:06:50] Lt. Fallnya: missile pod boom
[09:06:55] Lt. Fallnya: and being almost nuked
[09:06:57] GM: Call her BK…Beta Killer
[09:07:09] CWO Sarah: (( and being shot down at Reflex Point, then synchro cannon… ))
[09:07:19] GM: And missile cook offs
[09:07:26] Lt. Fallnya: mentioned that
[09:07:28] GM: and crash lands
[09:07:31] CWO Sarah: (( almost nuked was the aftershock of that ship you nat 20ed with reflex MW missiles ))
[09:07:31] 2 LT Komillia: She goes through Betas faster than most change underwear…
[09:08:01] GM: Ain't that the truth Komm
[09:08:15] Lt. Fallnya: lu's only lost 2
[09:08:22] Lt. Fallnya: one she turned into a missile
[09:08:38] GM: and Jaron I think swapped out once
[09:08:46] Lt. Fallnya: maybe
[09:08:52] CWO Sarah: (( two of my four weren't total losses, just 'close' to totally losses ))
[09:09:15] Lt. Fallnya: and of course newbies haven't lost any yet
[09:09:20] Lt. Fallnya: except for Alleria
[09:09:23] 2 LT Komillia: I think the Maeless twins only lost one each, and that was more of a: They were in the red and it would simply be easier to give new mecha than to repair.
[09:09:44] GM: nod
[09:09:46] Lt. Fallnya: yea same with Alleria
[09:09:56] Lt. Fallnya: into the red faster to just assign a new one than to repair
[09:10:09] CWO Sarah: (( thought Ay had to swap once ))
[09:10:11] GM: cannibalize the wrecked mecha for parts and move on…
[09:10:11] Lt. Fallnya: also why lu dive bombed hers using it like a fully laden missile
[09:10:29] 2 LT Komillia: ((So about those time-space missiles the Alphas are to get in the new books… [I AM kidding.] ))
[09:10:55] GM: Okay, …shove a time space missile up Komillia singularity…
[09:10:59] Lt. Fallnya: sorry guys i cant stay on much longer tho
[09:11:10] GM: Moving on (dt)
[09:13:03] GM: Class goes well, you keep a low profile. It's easy enough, and the day goes fast, Alleria notices a handsome young cap in the quad, very affable and oh so dreamy (more on this later)
[09:13:18] GM: cap = chap
[09:13:50] GM: Class ends and you have some time off! The town awaits! Go forth!
[09:13:50] Lt. Fallnya: ((lol i think stuff like that is foreign to her still isn't it since she was a clone?
[09:14:10] CWO Sarah: (( lil Alleria ))
[09:16:32] 2 LT Komillia: I'm heading down to the bazaar to see about some goodies. Who's coming with?
[09:16:56] Lt. Ishida: I will.
[09:17:03] 2Lt. Aylanea stretches out as the group gets out of class, looking around and considering it. "Hmm… Everything I had was on Tirol, I should probably go get at least something to wear, in terms of more civvies."
[09:17:13] CWO Sarah smiles. "I'll come along as well."
[09:17:16] 2 LT Gamjin runs away and dives into the river at the river walk to stay away from that.
[09:17:39] Lt. Ishida follows she is dressed in a Hamaka, white top, dark blue bottom, and has her Wakazashi and her Tanto at her waist.
[09:17:52] Lt. Jaron tags along for now
[09:17:57] Lt. Ishida: Hakama
[09:18:52] CWO Sarah is dressed in her one pair of jeans, and her jacket mostly.
[09:19:25] Lt. Ishida is dressed kinda like that…just the colors are different
[09:19:51] Lt. Jaron: "Suki…..why did you get the autograph the other day?"
[09:20:01] Lt. Ishida: Pardon me?
[09:20:22] 2Lt. Aylanea is dressed in a pair of shorts and a T-shirt, but it's painfully obvious that nothing on the Yuki would fit her, the t-shirt is stretched skin tight, and doesn't reach the denim shorts that well, and the shorts are very tight, and seem shorter on her long legs.
[09:21:17] Lt. Jaron: "After the ceremony with the new ambassador"
[09:22:24] Lt. Jaron: .
[09:23:48] Lt. Ishida: Oh, the same reason I got a Lancer CD at Point K…to touch history.
[09:23:56] Lt. Ishida: I don't even like his music.
[09:24:03] 2 LT Komillia is dressed in a pair jean shorts, with a black sleeveless shirt, and a white jacket over the shirt.
[09:24:39] CWO Sarah laughs just a little and nods.
[09:24:39] Lt. Jaron nods "I see. What is your personal take on the Ambassador?"
[09:24:55] Lt. Ishida: I think she has a lot to prove, mainly to herself.
[09:25:46] Lt. Ishida: But, despite that, I trust her to want to do the right thing. She may not succeed, but she will try.
[09:26:44] CWO Sarah nods just a little at that.
[09:26:45] Lt. Ishida: It is unfortunate, she is being thrust into this, and all our hope are being laid upon her shoulders. I do not envy her.
[09:27:19] 2Lt. Aylanea shrugs a little. "She's used to being in the spotlight and performing, just a different kind of performance. She'll get used to it."
[09:27:39] Lt. Jaron nods
[09:28:06] Lt. Ishida: She will perform well, she always did, it's the actions she will be forced to make behind the scenes that will be those that matter.
[09:28:42] 2 LT Komillia: She managed to prove there was more to winning fights than just weapons, especially to the Zentraedi. She may have cornucopia of personal faults, but for that alone I respect her.
[09:28:54] Lt. Ishida nods
[09:29:48] Lt. Jaron: "I think any singer with moderate talent could have helped against the Zentraedi. She was just lucky to be in the right place"
[09:30:19] Lt. Ishida: Hai this is true, but, she did follow thru under the enormous pressure put on her.
[09:30:42] Lt. Ishida: I just hope she is up to the task again.
[09:30:50] Lt. Ishida: For all our sakes.
[09:31:18] Lt. Jaron nods
[09:31:55] Lt. Ishida walks along towards the commercial district and fans herself absently with her…fan. "You dont like her do you?"
[09:32:07] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little bit and shrugs.
[09:32:21] CWO Sarah just listens quietly.
[09:33:22] Lt. Jaron: "Not really. I think she is airy and just likes to the put on a show"
[09:33:35] Lt. Ishida nods
[09:34:38] Lt. Ishida: So, shall we visit the Riverwalk or head on down to Level 2?
[09:34:52] CWO Sarah considers a moment. "She is, or she was, back a long time ago? I'd think she's grown up by now…" She shrugs to Suki. "Whichever you think…"
[09:35:38] Lt. Ishida looks at Sarah and smirks. "I think we should run naked out an airlock!" She looks at you. "Hmmmmm?"
[09:36:05] Lt. Jaron quirks a brow at the comment
[09:36:10] CWO Sarah just laughs a little at that, rolling her eyes. "silly…"
[09:36:32] Lt. Ishida: Don't just choose what you think I want…
[09:36:41] 2 LT Komillia: I want to shop.
[09:37:01] 2 LT Komillia: So I was hoping to go to the bazaar on level 2.
[09:37:05] Lt. Ishida: Lead on then Komillia-chan!
[09:37:09] Lt. Jaron: "Curious, what electives did you all decide on?"
[09:37:35] Lt. Ishida: I took a class on literature.
[09:37:59] 2 LT Komillia marches down to the second level hollering funny but slightly mocking cadence.
[09:38:20] CWO Sarah shrugs. "I'm trying to get better with social activities myself. There's stuff I might not 'get', and I want to make sure I'm not clueless." She smiles and shrugs.
[09:38:27] 2 LT Komillia: Singing Actually.
[09:38:36] Lt. Ishida follows at a ladylike pace, fanning herself absently her other hand resting upon the hilt of her blade.
[09:39:14] GM: well roll it there James
[09:39:55] 2Lt. Aylanea snickers at the cadence, laughing a little. "Careful, ma'am… not much you can use the sword on here…" She winks.
[09:40:10] 2Lt. Aylanea looks to Suki while saying that.
[09:40:12] Lt. Jaron walks along
[09:40:27] Lt. Ishida ignores Ay's ignorant comment
[09:42:35] 2Lt. Aylanea hmphs at Suki ignoring her, looking back to Komillia and stretching. "I can sing kinda… Just not terribly well yet. Maybe if I can get myself looking prettier, and better at handling it publicly…" She smiles and shrugs.
[09:43:06] Lt. Ishida can think of something crass to say, but stifles it.
[09:43:18] CWO Sarah rolls her eyes. "I'd probably sound like a dying goose if I tried to sing."
[09:44:30] 2 LT Komillia: ((afk))
[09:44:41] GM: You make it to a guarded elevator and the MP's check your passes then allow you to transit down to Level 2. You note that unlike Level 1, the area is darker, the holographic sky is set to Night.
[09:47:01] GM: You have seen the pic of Level 2, so I needn't go into tit to much, but, there is a glitzy strip, called the Slice, where the night clubs abound, and of course, the Bazaar.
[09:47:49] Lt. Jaron looks to Komillia "Its not bad….shows talent"
[09:47:54] GM: A cross between a massive strip mall and an open air market, the bazaar encompasses three city blocks
[09:48:59] GM: The area is jam packed with people although not so crowded that you cannot walk with difficulty. (think a large swap meet)
[09:49:41] GM: (not so crowded that you walk with difficulty.) rather
[09:50:24] Lt. Jaron maneuvers, following the ladies
[09:51:34] GM: The hustle and bustle is like nothing you have seen outside of Mars Base and Moon base, the sounds of vendors hawking their wares and the intense banter as vendor and buyer haggle permeate the area.
[09:52:05] 2 LT Komillia: Ok, I need new cosplay gear, some room decor, and some regular clothes. Not in that order.
[09:52:05] CWO Sarah blinks a little at the area, staying close to Suki.
[09:54:27] 2Lt. Aylanea looks around at all the stuff, quite interestedly. "Clothes, and room decor. In that order I'd think. Hm. There anywhere to swim on this ship? I'm sure there isn't on the Yuki…"
[09:54:36] GM: Down aways you can see kiosks and store fronts selling clothing. You see mostly generic wares, homespun, bolts of fabric and the like. Nearby are small outlet stores that sell the finished product,
[09:56:07] GM: as an aside, you see UEEF MP's in CVR-3 alongside TDF troops in Terminator body armor. Some are walking the 'beat' others hang back near APC's and Silverbacks.
[09:57:10] Lt. Jaron looks for some Tirolian history or culture collections
[09:57:21] GM: Roll a perc
[09:57:28] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [19,2] = (21)
[09:57:36] Lt. Ishida looks for a book store.
[09:57:41] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+5] => [1,5] = (6)
[09:57:46] Lt. Ishida: Squirrel!
[09:58:07] 2Lt. Aylanea looks for a store that might sell something in her size.
[09:58:19] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (11)
[09:58:23] GM: Jaron! You find a store that has figurines and other cultural artifacts for sale,
[09:58:24] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( perc ))
[09:59:05] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (20)
[09:59:16] 2 LT Komillia: ((perc))
[09:59:17] GM: You ascend
[09:59:41] GM: Yea look upon her, and know her!
[09:59:47] 2 LT Komillia: ((I get any higher, I'll hit rock bottom.))
[10:00:08] Lt. Jaron picks a few small animal types, moving up to pay and asks "Where can I find some books about Tirolian history?"
[10:00:12] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( hee! ))
[10:00:19] GM: Komillia, you see in the back of one of the clothing stores, what looks like costumes.
[10:00:46] CWO Sarah just looks around for a store with relatively inexpensive clothes, though she stays with Suki for the bookstore first.
[10:00:51] Lt. Ishida hears the word 'book' and subtly meanders closer to that conversation.
[10:00:54] 2 LT Komillia squees and skips over to the store and peruses the section.
[10:00:58] CWO Sarah: [1d20+1] => [7,1] = (8)
[10:01:15] Lt. Komillia: [1d100] =>  = (87)
[10:02:00] GM: You approach the costumes and find that to your dismay, that they are the genuine article, actual outfits for nurses, and the like.
[10:02:16] GM: roll another perc
[10:03:25] GM: James?
[10:03:28] GM: perc please
[10:03:31] GM: please
[10:04:40] GM: Jaron, the vendor points down the way towards an alley.
[10:05:39] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (17)
[10:05:42] Lt. Jaron nods "Thanks" and takes his figurines and heads thats way
[10:06:33] GM: Komillia, while you do not see exactly what you are looking for, as you turn around to leave you see two young Tirolian girls at a table sewing…one look tells you they are very adept at their profession…
[10:07:13] Lt. Ishida follows Jaron
[10:07:31] CWO Sarah follows Suki.
[10:08:31] 2Lt. Aylanea meanwhile keeps looking around for a clothing store, frowning as her one question a while ago seemed to get lost in the crush. She scratches her head slightly and shrugs, trying to think of what she remembers about the ship she's now stationed on, and make sure to check the map and plans of the big ship, to find out for herself.
[10:09:45] 2 LT Komillia makes note of the girls, and goes off looking for otaku magazines, or anything that might have pictures of what she wants.
[10:10:04] GM: Ay, you are in the same area as Komi, you can see her actually in one of the stores. Around you are various items of clothing, most are the loose fitting toga's so popular with Tirolians, as well as the more skin tight outfits preferred by the science and warrior caste.
[10:12:33] 2Lt. Aylanea is in fact looking around for something more… close to home, really, having been raised on a human ship. She looks at some of the tight outfits, then looks for something a little closer to what she's wearing, almost.
[10:12:45] GM: Komillia, you don't think you will find those types of magazines here at the bazaar, but, possibly, a the more commercial "Slice'…you might find items less…traditional
[10:13:52] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( probably where Ay is gonna wind up going as well, for more commercial type stuff. lol ))
[10:14:13] GM: Same answer to you Ay…the bazaar has a large selection of traditional items, and the like…mostly Tirolian in origin, the more, human items would be on Level 1, or in the 'Slice'
[10:14:15] 2 LT Komillia looks around the bazaar for a bit (PERC [1d20] =>  = (16)) before hunting someone down to let them know she is off to the Slice.
[10:14:41] GM: What are you looking for other then mags Komillia?
[10:15:28] 2Lt. Aylanea shakes her head just a little bit, and wanders to see if she can find someone to tell them she's headed to the Slice, herself.
[10:16:29] 2 LT Komillia: ((Some more typical clothing to wear to class, and anything that she might like to decorate her room with. Keeping in mind she is a Super Robot Otaku more than a general anime otaku.))
[10:16:45] GM: [1d100] =>  = (77)
[10:17:36] GM: As you make your way out, one little shop catches your eye, it has figurines, some a foot tall, and they llok to be stone carved replications of Tirolian and Zentraedi mecha
[10:19:29] GM: Jaron, you with Suki and Sarah in tow enter the alley, it is dark, and narrow, you see a few doors along it's length and a few signs hanging from the doors, one is obviously your target, as the sigh is a stylized book and scroll.
[10:20:32] 2 LT Komillia prices the mecha replicas, looking for a Green Bioroid, the enhanced Red and Blue, and a Q-Rau.
[10:21:51] Lt. Jaron looks up at the sign and then goes to enter the shop
[10:23:18] GM: Komillia you see all those, most are carved into a Tirolian derivative of obsidian, other into various other types of hardstone
[10:23:58] GM: As you three enter, a little bell jingles to announce your entry.
[10:24:39] GM: A small hunched over bespectacled man steps out from behind a table laden with books. The rest of the store is cluttered with tomes, large and small..
[10:25:05] 2 LT Komillia picks up all of them and buys them, if they aren't more than 800 total. Otherwise just gets the Green and the Q-Rau.
[10:25:30] GM: They are expensive, and you do see a Green Bioroid for 1K exquisitely carved out of jade.
[10:25:44] Lt. Jaron gives the owner a smile and asks "I'm in search of a text of Tirolian history"
[10:26:14] GM: The antiquarian nods, and smiles. Adjusting his glasses he asks ina horse voice.
[10:26:48] Bookkeeper: Which era?
[10:27:20] GM: Komillia the average price is 350
[10:27:30] GM: the Q-Rau is a bit more at 450
[10:27:51] 2 LT Komillia picks them all up.
[10:28:10] Lt. Jaron: "How many eras are there?"
[10:28:41] GM: That will be 2150 Credits
[10:29:40] 2 LT Komillia just picks up the Q-Rau instead.
[10:29:55] Bookkeeper: Oh many! Prehistory, Preindustrial, Industrial, the Interstellar Republic, the Robotech Empire…
[10:30:14] Bookkeeper: The Ci'vonian War…
[10:30:21] Bookkeeper: The masters Empire
[10:30:32] Bookkeeper: And…the Downfall…
[10:30:46] 2 LT Komillia heads off to the strip after getting the statue.
[10:30:53] Lt. Jaron: "Which two are the most influencing or crucial?"
[10:31:13] GM: The statue is a foot tall and weight about 15 pounds.
[10:31:38] Bookkeeper: All are, in their own way.
[10:31:58] CWO Sarah blinks a little at how many eras there are, though she stays quietly behind Suki while she listens.
[10:32:16] Lt. Jaron: "Yes but I doubt I can read them all at once or have the creds to buy them all at this time"
[10:32:17] Bookkeeper: All are part of the history of our people, no era is less influential then the other, all are intertwined, all had their influences.
[10:32:42] Bookkeeper: Ahh, I see.
[10:33:19] Bookkeeper: I am most partial to the Interstellar Republic, it chronicles our rise to our golden era of science and progression,
[10:33:30] Bookkeeper: there are many tomes on this era
[10:33:57] Bookkeeper: I must ask young human. Do you read our tongue?
[10:34:27] Lt. Jaron: "No, its something I wish to learn as well as your history"
[10:34:35] Bookkeeper beams at you
[10:35:41] Bookkeeper turns, oh so slowly, Yoda-esque in a way, and retrieves three books, One, you can tell is a history book, the other two, one is a language primer, the other a follow on bok to the first.
[10:36:37] Lt. Jaron smiles, eying the books
[10:37:39] Lt. Ishida: I would be interested in the Ci'Vonian wars…may I?
[10:37:58] Bookkeeper eyes her and nods, smiling.
[10:38:29] Bookkeeper: Interesting tastes, this time in our history is a dark time, rife with death, despair and tumult.
[10:39:22] GM: Komillia, you seem to have lost sight of Jaron Suki and Sarah, but you can still see Ay
[10:39:45] Lt. Ishida nods
[10:40:02] Bookkeeper: Lays out a spread of books, some 9 in total on the era.
[10:40:12] 2 LT Komillia: Hey, Ay! I'm about to head down to the Slice.
[10:40:21] Lt. Ishida smiles.
[10:40:23] Lt. Ishida: All please.
[10:40:40] Bookkeeper blinks
[10:40:46] Bookkeeper: As you wish.
[10:41:41] GM: Jaron your tab comes to 310 creds, Suki yours tops out at 790
[10:41:42] 2Lt. Aylanea glances over to Komillia and nods quickly. "I was about to as well, actually. I was looking for one of the others to inform about it. Not sure if we 'need' to stick together or just be back to the shuttle when we need to go to the ship, but…"
[10:42:10] Lt. Jaron: "I will just take the three and return to get the others at a date. Plus she has a packer behind her"
[10:42:45] Lt. Ishida snickers slightly and hands the books to Sarah
[10:42:56] 2 LT Komillia: they seem to have disappeared, but as long as we make it back on time, I doubt anyone will care. Well, so long as we do the whole buddy system thing anyway.
[10:43:21] 2Lt. Aylanea nods just a little at that, quickly. "True enough…" She smiles and moves ot follow. "Lets go then…"
[10:43:48] Bookkeeper: I will hold these for you then.
[10:43:49] CWO Sarah blinks and gets handed the books, taking hold of them and blinking a little.
[10:44:09] GM: Jaron Suki and Sarah perc rolls
[10:44:18] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+5] => [12,5] = (17)
[10:44:21] CWO Sarah: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[10:44:29] GM: Squirrel
[10:44:30] CWO Sarah: (( *FACEPALM* ))
[10:44:47] GM: Nah, the books obstruct your vision
[10:44:52] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [13,2] = (15)
[10:44:52] CWO Sarah: (( don't load the books up past her eyes, more like, yeah ))
[10:45:42] GM: Jaron and Suki, you can see Komillia and Ay ahead of you, about 150 feet, walking away from you. Since they are tall you can see them easily
[10:45:50] GM: Komillia and Ay, percs
[10:46:00] 2Lt. Aylanea: [1d20] =>  = (8)
[10:46:25] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (20)
[10:46:36] Lt. Jaron carries his books and small pouch of figurines.
[10:46:45] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( GEEZ, you get all the 20s tonight ))
[10:46:49] 2 LT Komillia: ((am I sucking up all the good luck?))
[10:46:56] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( lol ))
[10:47:00] GM: A street urchin brushes past, Ay, you don't think much of it, but Komillia, you look down and see SEE the little shit lift your wallet.
[10:48:21] 2 LT Komillia: Get BACK HERE YOU!
[10:48:43] 2 LT Komillia chases said urchin.
[10:48:50] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks. "What happened?" She whirls back to see who she's shouting at, then chases after as well.
[10:48:54] Street Urchin runs
[10:49:04] 2 LT Komillia: ((SPD:31 ))
[10:49:44] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( spd 33, but since she doesn't know who's being chased entirely, is following behind Komi. ))
[10:50:07] 2 LT Komillia: Little wallet thief get BACK HERE!
[10:50:17] 2Lt. Aylanea blinks and checks for her own wallet then.
[10:50:21] GM: Roll a strike and a navigation to maneuver the crowd of people that the smaller youth is easly ducking past.
[10:50:54] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+6] => [1,6] = (7)
[10:51:02] 2 LT Komillia: ((…))
[10:51:20] 2 LT Komillia: ((Somebody's karma ran over my dogma))
[10:51:46] 2 LT Komillia: ((Nav [1d100] =>  = (37) vs 75))
[10:52:05] Lt. Jaron comments to Suki and Sarah "Should we help or let them have their fun?"
[10:52:21] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( and since I'm right behind… strike [1d20+9] => [5,9] = (14) and nav [1d100] =>  = (75) vs 61 ))
[10:52:32] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( rotfl ))
[10:52:36] GM: Komillia you are able to 'plot' a course thru the sea of humanity, but the second you reach out your new statue begins to slip out of your grasp, instinctively you cradle it back to your body and the lil cuss evades you
[10:53:12] GM: Komillia you turn to give chase but a large Tirolian pulling a cart passes between you
[10:53:25] GM: Suki Sarah and Jaron percs
[10:53:31] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+5] => [1,5] = (6)
[10:53:31] Lt. Jaron: [1d20+2] => [12,2] = (14)
[10:53:32] 2 LT Komillia jumps the cart.
[10:53:42] Lt. Ishida: I like squirrels
[10:53:49] CWO Sarah: [1d20+1] => [17,1] = (18)
[10:54:01] GM: Komillia you va already made it past the cart…
[10:54:27] 2 LT Komillia: ((Do I still see the urchin?))
[10:55:06] GM: Suki seems engrossed int eh hand drawn pictures of one of the books and sees nothing, Sarah and Jaron, you see a kid being chased! Towards you!, Sarah, you can see the kids pursuers, two big ole mean Zentraedi wimminz!
[10:55:40] GM: Yes Komillia you still have a bead on him Ay, you do not
[10:55:59] CWO Sarah blinks a little as she sees a kid being chased by two women. "wonder what that's all about…" She tries to move to see if she can catch the kid and see what's up.
[10:56:13] 2 LT Komillia kicks into full sprint after the bugger.
[10:56:21] 2 LT Komillia: Get back here thief!
[10:56:56] Lt. Jaron is a bit wide eyed from Komillia's outburst and looks at the little kid running
[10:57:24] CWO Sarah: (( if he's headed towards me, what do I need to roll?Strike? ))
[10:57:37] GM: The kid is a bit out ahead, but Komillia you can catch up , maybe, roll a nav and a strike, nav first please. Ay, you need to use an attack to clear the traffic jam….Sarah, and Jaron, the kid is about 100 feet from you and closing flast, he seems preoccupied with the two wimminz behind him
[10:57:53] GM: Suki finally look sup at the commotion.
[10:58:51] 2Lt. Aylanea tries to evade around the traffic jam as much as she can, even if she needs to take time to do it.
[10:58:52] 2 LT Komillia: [1d100] =>  = (90) vs 75
[10:59:12] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20] =>  = (19)
[10:59:24] 2 LT Komillia: +6=25 strike
[10:59:46] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( any word on me checking for my wallet? ))
[10:59:51] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *assumes its gone* ))
[11:00:00] GM: Komillia, it's just not fair, you thought you had a line on him but damned if some moron didn't decide to sweep out his store front, you trip over the broom…
[11:00:07] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( LOL ))
[11:00:11] Street Urchin: [1d20+5] => [4,5] = (9)
[11:00:42] GM: but catch the kids ankle as you land on you chest, it hurts since your statur broke your fall.
[11:00:55] GM: Your wallet is gone Ay
[11:01:04] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( *nod* heehee ))
[11:01:13] 2 LT Komillia: Gotcha. Ow.
[11:01:21] Street Urchin tries to kick the crazy Zent off.
[11:01:23] Street Urchin: [1d20+5] => [2,5] = (7)
[11:01:35] 2Lt. Aylanea keeps trying to hurry and see if she can get up to where Komillia is, to help her with the problem.
[11:01:35] Street Urchin: LEGGO!!!
[11:01:37] Street Urchin: HELP HELP!
[11:01:43] Lt. Jaron walks over to the scuffle
[11:01:44] Street Urchin: SHE'S TRYING TO KILL ME!
[11:02:02] Lt. Ishida: Oh for the love of…
[11:02:34] GM: The crowd parts around the spectacle
[11:02:38] CWO Sarah frowns. "If that is the case, what was she saying about stolen wallets?"
[11:02:53] CWO Sarah walks for the scuffle as well.
[11:02:55] 2 LT Komillia: Gimme my wallet back!
[11:02:58] GM: Player knowledge Sarah, you didnt hear that part
[11:03:03] GM: now you did
[11:03:25] CWO Sarah: (( nevermind then. Thought she was screaming it loud enough for someone else to hear. ))
[11:03:44] Street Urchin tries to free himself again
[11:03:46] Street Urchin: [1d20+5] => [14,5] = (19)
[11:03:55] CWO Sarah walks over for the scuffle, scratching her head and blinking.
[11:04:20] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( would I have reached the scuffle by now? ))
[11:04:30] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( since he's down, and I took an attack to get past the jam? ))
[11:04:45] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+6] => [1,6] = (7)
[11:04:54] Lt. Jaron wonders if the two zents are going to bested by a kid
[11:04:58] GM: Yes, the rest of us have reached the periphery of the crowd ring, with Komillia and the kid in the center yelling
[11:04:58] 2 LT Komillia: (I slipped/)
[11:05:22] GM: The kid slips out of his pants and leaves that in Komillia hands and starts to flee
[11:05:36] 2Lt. Aylanea hurries for where Komi is, and tries to help restrain the kid if she can possibly do so, frowning as the kid slips out, and trying to give her own chase and attempt to catch.
[11:06:04] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( nav, or just strike? ))
[11:06:07] Street Urchin: THEY'RE TYRING TO KILL ME AHHHHHH!
[11:06:30] Lt. Jaron goes to grab the kid by the collar [1d20+3] => [18,3] = (21)
[11:06:47] 2Lt. Aylanea: (( nevermind ))
[11:06:50] 2 LT Komillia: I won't kill ya. But a good military school is in your future.
[11:07:01] Uninformed well-intentioned Bystander moves to block Ay
[11:07:10] Uninformed well-intentioned Bystander: [1d20+2] => [17,2] = (19)
[11:07:27] Uninformed well-intentioned Bystander: oof hey, leave the kid alone!
[11:07:47] Street Urchin: [1d20+5] => [19,5] = (24)
[11:07:50] 2Lt. Aylanea moves to dodge around. [1d20+12] => [15,12] = (27) "He's stolen at least two wallets, including mine."
[11:08:06] GM: The kid ducks under Jaron's grab!!!!
[11:08:21] Lt. Ishida: [1d20+9] => [12,9] = (21)
[11:08:31] Street Urchin: [1d20+5] => [9,5] = (14)
[11:08:32] Street Urchin: [1d20+5] => [2,5] = (7)
[11:08:59] 2 LT Komillia gets up and goes after the kid.
[11:10:08] GM: err sorry, nm, AY you skirt around the well intentioned guy, and the Kid is pushed back onto his ass by a swift palm strike to his chest delivered by Suki, Komillia you have a free shot on the kid now
[11:10:35] 2 LT Komillia: [1d20+6] => [1,6] = (7)
[11:10:50] 2 LT Komillia frustratedly grabs at air.
[11:10:56] GM: You almost drop your statue again and decide to save it rather then grab at the kid
[11:11:09] GM: PUT THE STATUE DOWN lol
[11:11:13] CWO Sarah: [1d20+4] => [11,4] = (15)
[11:11:15] CWO Sarah tries to restrain the boy now that he's knocked back.
[11:12:20] GM: okie dokie
[11:12:31] Street Urchin: [1d20+5] => [8,5] = (13)
[11:12:38] Street Urchin: OWWW!
[11:13:04] Lt. Jaron: (how old is the kid?)
[11:13:10] GM: Sarah, you have him! But he's struggling, do you have entangle or something?
[11:13:15] GM: The kid cant be more the 10
[11:14:13] CWO Sarah: (( :hrms. I'm listed as +2 to entangle for martial arts, you sure its' a separate skill, or just a d20? ))
[11:14:41] Lt. Ishida stands in front of the child, her eyes narrow, her thumb on the hilt of her blade, which is an inch out of it's scabbard, ready to be loosed. Suki look ready to kill at the drop of a hat.
[11:15:18] Lt. Jaron kneels down in front of the kid "Please calm down and be truthful. Did you steal their wallets?" (trust [1d100] =>  = (4) vs 25%)
[11:15:35] GM: If any character has seen samurai movies, yeah, this is as close to it as you can get.
[11:16:00] Street Urchin: mmm…..maybe.
[11:16:12] 2 LT Komillia: Woah Samurai girl, no need to kill over this. But I am turning the runt over the authorities or a military school.
[11:16:34] Lt. Jaron: "Ok…Why exactly?"
[11:16:48] Lt. Ishida glowers over the moniker, but slides the blade back with an audible 'snick'
[11:17:22] Street Urchin: Ummm…because.
[11:17:30] Lt. Jaron: "Remember, be truthful and it will all be easy"
[11:17:44] Legionnaire: Okay, break it up, what have we here?
[11:18:12] Street Urchin looks up at the Legionnaire
[11:18:15] CWO Sarah frowns at Suki and sighs softly, speaking to the boy. "Because why? Be honest with us, honey, we won't hurt you…" ([1d100] =>  = (42) trust vs. 94%)
[11:18:21] 2 LT Komillia: A little thief, she took two wallets.
[11:18:23] Street Urchin: Help officer! They re trying to beat me up!
[11:18:38] Lt. Jaron leans towards the kid "bad idea"
[11:18:51] Legionnaire: Really, is that so?
[11:19:36] Lt. Jaron raises up and steps away from the kid now as he gave him a chance
[11:20:14] Street Urchin sits, and slightly shuffles away form mean old sowrd lady.
[11:20:15] 2 LT Komillia: Yeah, the kid took my wallet, and then ran off.
[11:20:39] Legionnaire: I see.
[11:21:02] Legionnaire steps up and lifts the kid off the ground and sets him on his feet.
[11:21:18] Legionnaire cuffs him bu the scruff of his neck and pats him down
[11:21:37] Legionnaire pulls out FIVE wallets.
[11:21:44] 2Lt. Aylanea nods. "I had mine, until just after the chase for him was on. I noticed someone brush, but didn't realize until Lt. Maeless shouted about him stealing the wallet and I checked…" She blinks at that.
[11:21:51] Legionnaire: Oh, trying to beat you up eh?
[11:22:01] Legionnaire smacks the kid upside the head.
[11:22:08] Legionnaire: Which ones are yours.
[11:22:32] 2 LT Komillia picks the one with three green G's on it.
[11:22:44] Legionnaire: Triple G?
[11:22:56] Legionnaire: Yup, right here.
[11:23:04] Legionnaire hands Komillia her wallet
[11:23:13] 2 LT Komillia: It's an old earth show actually.
[11:23:14] 2 LT Komillia: Thank you.
[11:23:26] GM: Extreme Granny!
[11:23:41] GM: Dy no meet tay!
[11:23:48] 2Lt. Aylanea picks the one she recognizes at hers. It doesn't have any IDing marks. "My ID should be right in it…"
[11:24:02] Legionnaire looks at the ID
[11:24:08] Legionnaire: Yeah, thats you alright…
[11:24:11] Legionnaire snickers
[11:24:21] 2 LT Komillia: ((If Millia from Macross 7 is any indication, Komillia will still be looking in her twenties by the times she's in her mid-fifties.))
[11:24:25] 2Lt. Aylanea smiles sweetly and takes it. "Thank you."
[11:24:47] Legionnaire: All right you, off to the press gang with you!
[11:25:02] Legionnaire yanks the kid and starts to lead him away
[11:25:23] 2 LT Komillia: "What's a "press gang?"
[11:25:54] CWO Sarah sighs just a little, watching the yanking. "And yanking on a little kid like that?" She sighs, looking down a little at the ground.
[11:25:59] Lt. Ishida: Ancient Earth term, gangs of sailors would take people off the streets in england and 'press' them into service.
[11:26:04] 2 LT Komillia: Sorry critical language failure.
[11:26:31] 2 LT Komillia: Pretty much what I would have done to the kid anyway…
[11:26:37] Lt. Ishida: The young lad seems on his way into the service of teh TDF it would seem
[11:28:09] CWO Sarah nods just a little. "Well, a little military discipline probably won't be bad for him, I suppose, as long as they're not overly violent about disciplining him…"
[11:28:32] Lt. Ishida: It's the TDF…but you are right, it would do him well.
[11:29:03] Lt. Ishida retrieves the book she was looking at earlier and flips to the page she was at.
[11:29:57] Lt. Jaron carries his stuff, following along
[11:30:07] 2 LT Komillia checks the status of her statue.
[11:30:47] GM: By all rights the statue should be rubble, but your naturally ample padding was able to protect it
[11:31:01] 2Lt. Aylanea checks her wallet to make sure everything is there, then nods. "We were going to be heading up to the Strip, actually, before this happened, figured we should probably inform you guys of it anyway, before we headed up."
[11:31:59] Lt. Ishida looks at Sarah.
[11:32:06] Lt. Ishida: What was that frown about?
[11:33:26] CWO Sarah shakes her head just a little bit. "Just a memory from a long time ago, of a kid a little older than him. Situation was a little different though. Can't say much about it…" She looks around a little at the crowds. "Here at least."
[11:33:48] Lt. Ishida nods and then turns back to the book
[11:34:23] Lt. Ishida: Good tackle by the way.
[11:34:43] Lt. Jaron yawns "I think I'm going to head back everyone. I shall catch you all later"
[11:35:29] 2 LT Komillia: ((And I'm turning in for real. Night all!))
[11:35:35] Lt. Ishida: I shall join you, I still need to talk with the CDR Tekeda.
