Interlude 1: Night 3

[10:34:40] Lt. Ishida (GM): ah well, so, Ober, John was in the room (you can read the logs) and is now aware that Sarah is Invid.

[10:36:53] Lt. Ishida (GM): Sarah and Suki have been 'escorted off' to the brig and you have been asked to report to Major Kavashera

[10:38:00] John: heads to Major Kavashera's office
[10:39:36] Lt. Ishida (GM): As you enter the Zentraedi is still in his CVR-3 and is going over some after action reports with his XO and First Shirt.

[10:40:39] Kavashera (GM): Noticing you the pauses and point a unused chair, as you sit the First Shirt pats you on the shoulder and smiles at you. "Good work out there son, damn good."
[10:42:40] John salutes
[10:43:45] John stands at attention
[10:45:54] Kavashera (GM): The Major returns is crisply and finishes up with the other two, then turns to you.(The other two remain in the room.) "I've read your jacket." He pokes at a file on his desk, freshly printed out by the looks of it. "And, the old saying of judging books by their covers is a bunch of crap." he sits back. "Nothing to impressive in there…" he pauses. "However, you impressed my First Sergeant here by your actions on the Yukikaze today, and that's worth more to me than any medal laden personal file.
[10:46:33] Kavashera (GM): "Sit." he says, motioning again at the chair.
[10:47:09] John sits down
[10:48:43] Kavashera (GM): "You showed initiative out there today, took guts to go after a fully fueled and armed missile like you did. Damage control teams tell me it'll take a week of banging away to repair the launch clamps you broke free. But, it would have taken months to repair the damage had that missile gone off in the tube."
[10:49:21] Kavashera (GM): "If we had survived it." The XO chimes in, sipping his coffee out of his "I'm the MAN!" coffee mug
[10:50:36] Kavashera (GM): "Long story short." The Major continues. "Top here recommended you to me, I recommended you to the Captain, and now, here we are, full circle."
[10:52:05] Kavashera (GM): "So, welcome aboard, consider yourself poached from what ever fleatrap you were posted on earlier. The Top here will square you away." He stands and puts out his hand.
[10:52:55] John shakes his hand "thank you sir. I'm glad to be here."
[10:53:07] Kavashera (GM): "Damn right you are!" he smiles back.
[10:54:07] Kavashera (GM): Standing up after his pretty hard grip, "Dismissed."
[10:54:31] John: "I was wondering sir if you could find out what happened to my former squad leader Yancy (insert name here)
[10:56:12] Kavashera (GM): The Major looks over at his XO. "Help that lad out will ya." The "MAN" nods. "Sure thing boss." he looks at you. "We'll make a few calls, get back to you okay. Don't worry, shouldn't take to long. When the "Yuki" calls, people usually respond pretty fast."
[10:56:43] John: "thank you sir."
[10:57:52] Kavashera (GM): "All right son! 'nuff wastin the old mans time!" The Sar'Major says has he stands, saluting the Major and XO who return it.
[10:58:12] John salutes
[10:58:19] (GM): You can tell he's not mad, just , well, forceful…
[11:00:23] (GM): The Sar'Major leads you out, and as you move through the corridors he 'splains things to ya. "Right, now this here Yuki, as we 'fectionaly call 'er, is one the best damn ships in tha fleet. You need it done, we do it! Screw that SDF-3 shit! blasted bus you ask me! This here ship is a lean mean fighting machine, and Gyrenes WET fuckin dream!"
[11:02:17] SM (GM): "Folks be pissin themselves fer a postin here! And half them slackjawed yokles that do, don't last a week!" he laughs! as you imagine he is taking personal pride from shipping off some 'yokle' that didn't make the grade.
[11:04:13] SM (GM): "Naw, right naw, we gonna set you up with 1st Squad. Few poor saps done got themselves kilt. So, we're rollin you all in there."
[11:07:26] SM (GM): he leads you to the squad bay and shows you around, a few other Marines regard your presence. "ALL RIGHT you! I want y'all to welcome Johnny here to the fold! He the sumbitch what yanked that missile from the Yuki's bosom! So we all know he's got a pair!" He claps you on the back, HARD, almost bowling you forward. A few Marines laugh at that but all make their way over to shake your hand and introduce themselves.
[11:10:09] John shakes hands and mingles a bit
[11:11:05] (GM): The 'Top' leaves you with the others as he goes look for someone ass the to chew…
[11:12:24] (GM): The others show you around, your berth/room, the facilities, arms room, etc, all the good stuff …
[11:15:31] (GM): they eventually leave you alone to do what you would like for the time being
[11:21:34] John decides to go find some grub
[11:21:54] John: heads to mess hall
[11:22:35] Lt. Ishida (GM): Scene shifts to another room across the ship where Suki's stomach growls.
[11:24:13] Sarah glances over at hearing her roomie's stomach growling, blinking a little and smiling just a bit. She doesn't laugh though, wanting to be nice. She slips off the bed and checks her hair in the mirror, getting ready to go for food possibly.
[11:25:08] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki looks up. "Hungry?"
[11:25:52] Sarah shrugs just a little bit. "Well, I figure it's best to get some food now, before my stomach growls loud enough for anyone else to hear as well." She does laugh a little bit then.
[11:29:15] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki stands, and makes her way to the door.
[11:29:50] Sarah smiles and follows right along, bracing herself slightly before walking out, though.
[11:32:14] Lt. Ishida (GM): You make your way to the mess hall. There are a few dozen folks there already.
[11:33:18] (GM): (John has arrived at the mess hall and is in line as Suki and Sarah enter, and make their way into line.)
[11:33:35] Sarah keeps following Suki the whole way, watching cautiously. She hasn't felt this exposed since she first started out in the Dakota resistance. She slips into line without a word, just following behind Suki.
[11:34:37] Lt. Ishida (GM): Perc rolls
[11:34:44] John: [1d20] => [4] = (4)
[11:34:48] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+3] => [4,3] = (7)
[11:34:55] Sarah: [1d20+1] => [16,1] = (17)
[11:35:50] Lt. Ishida (GM): John and Suki don't seem to notice, but Sarah sure does, it is as if all eyes are now on her and there are hushed whispers, the mess hall banter has ceased.
[11:38:43] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki gets her food (after John has)…Sarah?
[11:39:21] Sarah rolls her eyes at the room at large, promptly ignoring them and getting her food without a comment.
[11:39:42] Lt. Ishida (GM): John?
[11:41:12] John: After grabbing his food, John turns to find a seat.
[11:42:19] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki finds a table and sits and waits for Sarah to sit before she starts to eat. John, you sit at a nearby table.
[11:43:52] Lt. Ishida (GM): Perc
[11:44:03] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+3] => [1,3] = (4)
[11:44:06] Sarah: [1d20+1] => [1,1] = (2)
[11:44:13] Lt. Ishida (GM): Wow, Suki is really into her food…
[11:44:18] Lt. Ishida (GM): So is Sarah
[11:45:38] John: [1d20] => [14] = (14)
[11:47:19] Lt. Ishida (GM): John, on the other hand notices that the atmosphere has gone quite cold. A few personnel are looking at the women with daggers in their eyes.
[11:48:12] Lt. Ishida (GM): It doesn't take long, but a quartet of them step up from their table as a few more leave the room, and walk over to the table.
[11:50:20] Lt. Ishida (GM): I don't think a perc roll is needed for the girls now…
[11:52:22] (GM): One of the soldiers. leans down and slides Sarah tray off the table and onto the floor. "Oops, wow, you should be more careful…Invid."
[11:52:57] John: john watches intently
[11:53:36] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki looks up at the trooper … perc john and Sarah
[11:53:42] John: [1d20] => [19] = (19)
[11:54:04] Sarah: [1d20+1] => [15,1] = (16)
[11:54:32] (GM): John notices, from his angle that Suki has slid the knife off the table and is holding it on her hand, blade up, flush against her inner wrist.
[11:55:22] Lt. Ishida (GM): "Is there a problem…Lieutenant." Suki Says
[11:57:12] Sarah doesn't notice, on the other hand. She just eats quietly, until she hears Suki talking. She frowns then, her eyes widening a little at the knife. She makes no move herself. Yet.
[11:58:14] Thugs (GM): "We don't eat in the same room as Invid!" another soldier adds angrily.
[11:58:40] John gets up from his table
[11:59:00] Lt. Ishida (GM): "Then, we do you not leave." Suki says.
[11:59:20] (GM): Suki's tray is slid off the table now with a loud clatter.
[12:00:39] Thugs (GM): "No!, I think you should leave." One of the four says. "I think you should get out of this mess hall, and off this ship."
[12:01:07] Thugs (GM): "Yeah, your kind is not welcome here." Another adds
[12:02:19] John walks up to the group "what's the problem here?"
[12:03:34] Thugs (GM): One looks at you, cordially, "Got an Invid here, and her little collaborator here thinking they can just up and eat in our mess hall."
[12:05:07] John: "Do you have proof of that?" John really has no clue as to the situation with Sarah. she looks human to him.
[12:06:00] Sarah just sits there and eats quietly,trying to ignore the whole thing. She does her best not to react. The only thing she does really is frown slightly at the blade in Suki's hand, shaking her head no only the absolute barest fraction. And without missing a beat.
[12:06:09] John: "Do you have proof of that?"
[12:07:14] John: "even if she is Invid. some people with more brains than you guys decided that she was free to be here."
[12:07:43] Thugs (GM): "Proof!? What, are you Sherlock Holmes here, the whole ships knows." Another adds. "Oh, is that right, well OOO la tee DAH!"
[12:10:28] John: "The Invid have left earth. There not our enemy anymore. why don't you guys just lay off."
[12:12:39] Thugs (GM): "Not our enemy? What, are you insane!! We've been fighting them for the last eleven years! And what, just because we WIN, and kick their slug asses offa Earth, that suddenly they aren't our enemy anymore!?"
[12:13:38] Thugs (GM): One turns on John and pushes him "Damn sympathizer!"
[12:14:42] John stands his ground "look, I know your angry. we all have lost someone to the Invid."
[12:15:23] Sarah just stays quiet. Her face doesn't even twitch, except for eating her food. She glances over towards Suki, to make sure she isn't doing anything too drastic yet.
[12:16:12] John: "but violence isn't the way to solve this. you guys should just let this go befor you regret it"
[12:18:56] Thugs (GM): "Oh, and what are you going to do about it?" One says.
[12:19:17] Lt. Ishida (GM): Perc roll
[12:19:46] John: "you guys are pretty dense. If you think you can take me , try."
[12:19:51] John: [1d20] => [14] = (14)
[12:21:19] Lt. Ishida (GM): This looks like it's going to go down, , init rolls y'all
[12:21:37] John: [1d20+2] => [12,2] = (14)
[12:22:53] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+4] => [19,4] = (23)
[12:23:29] Lt. Ishida (GM): Thugs in order:
[12:23:29] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+2] => [1,2] = (3)
[12:23:29] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+2] => [10,2] = (12)
[12:23:30] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+2] => [14,2] = (16)
[12:23:30] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+2] => [20,2] = (22)
[12:24:29] Sarah: [1d20+1] => [3,1] = (4)
[12:27:22] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki holds her attack. The thug pushes John.
[12:28:37] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+4] => [1,4] = (5)
[12:28:52] Lt. Ishida (GM): Well, it's a push…not exactly palpable…
[12:30:57] Lt. Ishida (GM): The push is insufficient to move you, such is the craptasticness of the roll
[12:31:03] Lt. Lurana Fallnya watches the brawl at the moment not knowing what its about shrugs and goes to get some food
[12:31:35] Lt. Ishida (GM): Thugs two takes a swing at Sarah
[12:32:08] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+4] => [8,4] = (12)
[12:32:31] Sarah: (( dodging ))
[12:32:33] Sarah: [1d20+6] => [8,6] = (14)
[12:33:21] Lt. Lurana Fallnya gets her food obviously not interested in the brawl least until something happens to involve her and sits at a table in some athletic gear having just come from the rec room
[12:33:24] Lt. Ishida (GM): You barely duck under the swing. Suki, who had held her attack strikes the man who punched at Sarah.
[12:33:43] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+9] => [11,9] = (20)
[12:34:10] Lt. Ishida (GM): Hitting him square in the side.
[12:34:23] Lt. Ishida (GM): ribs to be precise
[12:34:43] Lt. Ishida (GM): [2d4+8] => [3,4,8] = (15)
[12:34:48] Lt. Ishida (GM): For 15 SDC
[12:35:21] Lt. Ishida (GM): The other thug takes a swing at Suki
[12:35:46] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+4] => [18,4] = (22)
[12:36:17] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki will attempt to parry.
[12:36:17] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+11] => [10,11] = (21)
[12:36:26] Lt. Ishida (GM): But is hit in the face.
[12:36:35] Lt. Ishida (GM): [2d4+3] => [4,2,3] = (9)
[12:36:39] Lt. Ishida (GM): For 9 points
[12:36:54] Lt. Ishida (GM): Another thug attacks john
[12:37:04] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+4] => [2,4] = (6)
[12:37:17] Lt. Ishida (GM): and misses as he can't get past his 'buddy'
[12:37:24] John: parry
[12:37:27] John: [1d20+2] => [10,2] = (12)
[12:38:45] Lt. Lurana Fallnya prolly looks like the oddball in the mess only one in athletic wear and just eats her food since no one has invited her to the party by bashing into her or dumping her food on her ect
[12:39:14] John: [1d20+6] => [8,6] = (14)
[12:39:35] Lt. Ishida (GM): kk, you easily parry his feeble attack
[12:39:56] Lt. Ishida (GM): he tries to block your strike
[12:40:00] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+3] => [4,3] = (7)
[12:40:06] John: karate kick

[12:42:40] Lt. Ishida (GM): Sarah it is your attack
[12:43:07] Sarah: (( holding my attack actualy ))
[12:43:22] Lt. Ishida (GM): Right now the mess hall is abuzz, folks are cheering on the brawl, but no other, so far, join in
[12:43:42] Lt. Ishida (GM): the last thug take a punch at Suki
[12:43:43] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+3] => [4,3] = (7)
[12:43:47] Lt. Ishida (GM): Missing
[12:43:58] Sarah sighs just a little and shakes her head at the battle around her.
[12:44:02] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki grabs the thug she hit by the hair
[12:44:05] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d20+9] => [20,9] = (29)
[12:44:16] Lt. Ishida (GM): And SLAMS! his head into the table!!!
[12:44:44] Lt. Ishida (GM): oh shit and Suki has death blow on Nat 20's
[12:45:07] Lt. Ishida (GM): looking that up, hold on lol
[12:45:25] Sarah: (( don't think that means it HAS to be a death blow. ))
[12:45:42] Sarah: (( though it'd be funny if it was. ))
[12:46:05] Lt. Ishida (GM): [2d6+8*2] => [5,4,16] = (25)
[12:46:10] Lt. Ishida (GM): Directly to HIT point
[12:46:28] Lt. Ishida (GM): death blow goes to hit points and bypasses SDC
[12:46:53] Lt. Lurana Fallnya just continues to eat peaceably even at the fight near her still not invited into it
[12:47:39] Lt. Ishida (GM): There is a sickening crunch that is heard throughout the room and the man Suki slammed goes limp and slides off the table, leaving a trail of blood as he flops to the deck with a thud
[12:48:24] Thugs (GM): The other three thugs back off! "Oh shit!" One cries out
[12:48:57] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki breaths deeply her eyes like darkened pits of hell.
[12:49:53] Thugs (GM): Holy Fuck!" Another yelps and drops down to the fallen pilot and checks for a pulse.
[12:50:29] Thugs (GM): [1d100] => [59] = (59)
[12:50:57] Thugs (GM): "Oh fuck, thank god! he's still alive!! Get a medic down here NOW!!!" the other guy yells
[12:51:10] Sarah blinks at the crunch and flinches completely, looking at Suki in a rather… disappointed manner. She then looks down towards the fallen pilot, concernedly, looking quickly for the intercom to call a medic.
[12:52:01] Lt. Ishida (GM): You see the intercom fine, since half a dozen other mess hall patrons have all converged on it! as the call for medical help goes out
[12:52:55] Lt. Ishida (GM): Sarah roll a perc, you to John
[12:53:00] Sarah: [1d20+1] => [11,1] = (12)
[12:53:04] Lt. Lurana Fallnya just continues eating obviously not affected or even caring
[12:53:04] John: [1d20] => [2] = (2)
[12:53:31] Lt. Ishida (GM): John, you just see death in Suki's eyes, but Sarah, you can tell she is horrified by what she has just done,
[12:54:47] Lt. Ishida (GM): The medics arrive forthwith!
[12:54:51] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d100] => [84] = (84)
[12:54:52] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d100] => [79] = (79)
[12:54:53] Lt. Ishida (GM): [1d100] => [1] = (1)
[12:55:06] Lt. Ishida (GM): And Ar FINALLY!!!! Jesus, able to stabilize the poor guy
[12:55:34] Lt. Ishida (GM): nothing like a crit success to make two bad rolls go away
[12:55:49] John turns to leave
[12:56:02] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki also moves to vacate the mess hall
[12:56:20] Lt. Ishida (GM): giving a quick head motion to Sarah that says "move your ass"
[12:56:44] Sarah frowns deeply and sighs, walking to Suki. "You were defending yourself from an unprovoked attack. Nothing more." She stays close to Suki, sighing and nodding.
[12:58:07] Lt. Ishida (GM): John is in ear shot to this conversation btw… Suki sighs. "Avoid rather then hurt, hurt rather then maim, maim rather then kill." she whispers sullenly
[12:58:48] Lt. Lurana Fallnya finishes her meal sitting back and then stands taking her tray over and puts it away then heads back to the gym to finish her workout.
[01:00:17] Sarah sighs just a little bit and nods. "Indeed. That's why I didn't take direct action other than to move out of the way. As much as they may act like it, they aren't the enemy."
[01:01:31] Lt. Ishida (GM): Suki stops and looks at Sarah dead in the eyes "Anyone that raises a fist at you is the enemy. Always! I know I did the right thing, and I am not ashamed of my intent. It is only the end result that I am ashamed of."
[01:02:02] Sarah sighs a little bit and nods slightly. "I'm sorry. I know that wasn't intended."
[01:02:47] Lt. Lurana Fallnya turns towards the gym not following them and proceeds to her workout
