This might require a "Dream Sequence", but it can't be posted here.

BTW, are the doors to the rooms walk-in from the passageway or climb downs like in a Firefly?

This whole thing gives me flashbacks to the "Mrs. Reynolds" kiss scene. Only my mind doesn't have to have the view from the back camera angle!

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Background stuff......

I was reading through some my old PM's and cmae across one I sent to Celeste about why the mission was set up where Jon and Tess were captured.

I tend to go a little deep sometimes in character development. But here part ofmy explaination to Celeste so she could use it if needed for Tess.

"I had to do online research to find a reason for the raid. If General Richard Wilkins had been recalled off Hera then the whole battle of Serenity Valley would have been different. It will take a really good Firefly fan to catch that. Let's see if we get some points from Al, lol.

Richard Wilkins was a General of the Anglo-Sino Alliance military during the Unification War. General Wilkins led the Alliance forces against the Independents at the Battle of Serenity Valley and was the architect of the Alliance's victory.

The Battle of Serenity Valley was a battle fought during the Unification War in Serenity Valley, located on Hera, and was considered to be the final decisive battle in the war. The battle began in May 2511, and while not the final battle of the war, was generally considered the end of the war for the Independents, who had lost almost all of the sixteen brigades and twenty air-tank squads they committed to the battle.

The battle lasted seven weeks, with dug-in Independent forces matched up against the superior numbers and technology of the Alliance, before Independent High Command officially surrendered to the Alliance. The Alliance were victorious due to their previously mentioned numbers and technology, as well as a brilliant deep-flank strategy by General Richard Wilkins.

The battle was in May of 2511 so that is why we were raiding in April 2511 so they would pull the General."

The hope of the attacks was to draw Alliance forces and leaders back toward the core planets. It was just Jon's luck he draw Wilkins planet and if they had succeeded then Wilkins would not have been in Serenity Valley and his pivotal flanking move would not have happened changing the course of the battle. That is one of Jon ghosts, knowing that his failure may have allowed that battle to be fought.

He felt the pressure against his back and before the pain could register his arm fell limp to his side, useless to complete the spell to save Cor’s life. The realization that his choice had may have cost him the treasure of a dear friend..and maybe his own life.

Staggering the rouge couldn’t help but know the irony that he was backstabbed. The only thing left he could think of was to fling himself into the Gith looming over Cor. Then as he heard the clatter of his attacker collapsing to the ground behind him an axe flashed into the side of Gith about to chop Cor, throwing it off balance. At the same time a glow appeared around the Dwarven Cleric and a moment later Cor was standing, axes in hand ready to finish the job that flying axe had started.

Although there was a brief joy seeing Knight’s Cleric once again ready for battle Ulthok himself would be of no help in his current state. His own pain and fatigue driving him down and also all the feelings of last few minutes came rushing in. He could feel the pain of the mental shock and the physical pain from him small companion, Peri. she has taken another attack from the Ilithid that caused her lose consciousness and fall painfully to the hard floor.

The Mage knows that there is still another damager coming to the door and he has to save himself so he can save Peri and his friends. Using his good arm Ulthok reached into his pouch and pulled a Potion of Extra Healing and drank the whole thing.

Feeling the potion starting to repair his sliced muscles and tendons Ulthok made his way to the Faerie Dragon crumpled on the floor. Scooping up her motionless form he once again cradling her in his arms. Turning back the room he scanned the battle for Valene, but he could not see her.

Been trying to figure a good place to use to stand ready.

Tann, do you think Ash and Wolf should be on the ground or take a position up on the ship's body? There is a little room to hide behind the landing gear or ever in the gear's bay. If we go up we can see the approach but there is less cover.

They might remember Ash hiding up on the tail before. Just don't see a bunch of options.

Well our last big job got complicated too. So here we go again.

Angela continued to amaze Jon as she so naturally asked the guests to give up their weapons. “Now, I’m guessin’ you all have lockboxes for yer weapons, or do you need to use one of ours? Not wanting any discharges during flight, an’ all that. Bad for pressurization.”

The Simons surprising obliged, present a rather hefty arsenal.

Even the wedding offered up what she had,
When group looked to the bodyguard,Seth makes no move to disarm. He continues on with looking over the cargo bay until he realizes that everyone is looking at him. he bows respectful before saying "I cannot allow to be disarmed. I am entrusted with Miss Fairchild's protection. While I appreciate the assistance of the Captain and his crew, it is my honour to protect her I I will not let that fall to another man. I assure you that I will not discharge my weapon without dire need and that it is a pulse plasma gun so it can not harm your ship while on the lesser setting. I do hope this is understood and acceptable as without your consent, I will have to call my employer and tell him this deal and transport is not to continue."

Jon wrinkled his brow a bit, “I’m sure that few photographers won’t warrant you needing to stay so armed.”

The bodyguard took a bit of a more defensive stance, "I am sorry. I thought you were informed. There have been threats on Miss Fairchild's life. Enemies of Mr. Steele and the Baron have sworn that they will abduct her before the wedding. That is why we are doing this late night pick up. Were you not informed of this?"

” How W’rin Bu Lai, Whai W’rin Bu Jwo,( Things never go smooth)….no our Wu Toh Wu
(confused) employer only said that Miss Fairchild was being hounded by the news people and so we needed to slip out quiet like.” Jon shot a glare to the Simons, “He even said that these gentlemen were just coming along for other business reasons aboard the wedding boat.”

Seth shrugs slightly and continues, "Oh. Well that is the situation. We can cease this arrangement now but I don’t believe your employer or mine would be happy with that. You are no doubt capable men, with some background with this kind of work - hence the need for a public relations man on a transport. "

Jon smiled at JC,” Well cargo needs to be protected, especially the further out you go to deliver it.”

There was silence for a moment as everyone looked to Jon. An awkward silence of a second or two only as Jon could ponder the ramifications of cancelling or going forward. Then Lilianna spoke up in the silence, as if to break the ice.

"I'd really like a tour of your ship sir. I have never been on a firefly before."

The PA crackled to life overhead, “This ain’t a firefly, Princess! This is a Whitefire!“

Lilianna looked up and then to the captain, "Oh. I am sorry. I didn't know. I didn't mean to offend."

Jon winced again turning to Seth, “ Our ship’s Engineer rebuilt most of Destiny by herself and she’s a bit protective. Perhaps not unlike someone calling Hermes Brand Luggage suitcases.” Jon smiled and continued, “ Whitefire ships are rare and we are the fastest freighter in the verse, but we may not have a published deck plan, but we will see what we can find.”

Seth smiled for a brief moment - just a moment and then returned his attention to the matter at hand, "It is good to have pride in one's workmanship. It shows strength of character and commitment. Your crew speak well of you by their actions. Shall we continue on the journey Captain?"

Jon started moving through the cargo bay, “If you’ll follow me I’ll show you the ship.”

“Catie, will you please join us as we escort Miss Fairchild’s party through the ship? JC.. check with Grace and see if she might find a simple deck layout for Mr. Liang.“ Jon started moving through the cargo bay, “If you’ll follow me I’ll show you the ship.”

Catie takes position beside Lilianna, opposite Asante, during the tour. She doesn't stand so close as to be invasive, but she is there similar to a waitress guiding a diner to their table.

She subtly gave reassuring nods to Jon as he gave the tour, recognizing by his body language that he was uncomfortable with it. When they reached the stairway to the guest quarters, Catie spoke up as well.

Jon started the tour with the cargo area and Medical Bay. Taking the lift to the middle deck. As they emerged he point left down the hall“ The galley is at the end of this gangway. The crew quarters are also here. Mr. Simon and Mr. Simon, your room will be up there by the galley.” Turning slightly,” The escape pod are there, " pointing up across the hall, "and Engineering is down this other way.”

The vibrations of the ship leaving Atmo and entering the Black stop and the gentle humm of the engines signal that Tess has the ship under way.

The Simons, still looking rather glum, take off to their quarters as soon as they are shown to them. Other than Rick asking when breakfast would be, they seem happy to be heading to bed.

“Your quarters, Miss Fairchild, are up this private stairs to our two guest rooms…… Mr. Liang, we have partitioned the one room so you can stay there with Miss Fairchild to ensure her safety. Miss Chang you will be in the room next to Miss Fairchild.” Jon really wasn’t use to this tour guide routine but it had to be done. He knew the Princess would naturally expect the Captain of the ship to personally attend to her for a while and…well she did give them STEAKS.” Standing in the hall he gestured up, “ The upper deck is restricted to crew only… for your safety,…as is Engineering.”

Jon then lead the guests and Catie up the stairs to the cabins.

"I've personally seen to the preparations of your rooms." Catie added,. "If there are any amendments you may like in regards to them, please let me know and I will find out if they can be accommodated."

"Oh, thank you, that is most kind." She says but seems very distracted and somewhat lost. She keeps looking to her bodyguard for direction.

Seth seemed very satisfied with the arrangement, "This works well. thank you Captain. If you could have the layout plans brought me as soon as possible, I'd appreciate it."

Lilianna however is not thrilled with the accommodations and the shared room with a barrier between. She doesn't say anything but her face is a mask of rage, sadness and loathing. She pleads fatigue and asks to be left in her room. Before you leave though, she grasps Catie but the hands and says, "Thank you for your kindness. I appreciate all the help you have given me in this matter."

As Asante heads to her room, she asks Jon formally, "Captain, I have a few matters that I must speak to you of some urgency. Could I have a few moments with you alone?" she asks as she enters her quarters and tossed her bag upon the bed.

Jon really needed to get to bridge to inform Tess and Grace of new security information, but he could see the wedding planner had deep concern on her face. He nodded to Catie to stay with Miss Fairchild and then he followed Asante into her cabin. “ Can we be brief, I really need to get to the bridge.”

Subject: Tess....

The shuttle gets hit and looses most of it's controls. Tess does some fancy flying by jumping back and forth inside to shift the weight to make it bank and turn taking her over the mountain and out of the fight. The little shuttle slides out of sight and into steep walled creator. Unable to use the comm as all electrical systems fail and unable to climb up the steep creator walls she is left to survive on the meager emergency rations stowed with the medical kit. She is found when the cruise ship company finally sends a rescue teams that reach the planet a month later. By then all traces of the Roc are gone. It was by chance that the rescue ship passed directly over the creator allowing it to pick up a ping from shuttles metal haul.

I hope you find this little Inn a comfortable haven from stresses of RL. This sight offers so much. I have came here a courious seeker and stayed to become a student. The people have taught me and let me grow. They gave me back my imagination and let me use it. So don't worry too much about intensely learning a new rule sets, just have fun story telling. I see you want to join Trilogy which is "old school" AD&D. Remember 3.0 and 3.5 grew out of 2.0 so the game is similar. I'm sure you can find a free copy of the PH for 2.0 online if you really want to review.

Now to the important stuff. Here's a nice fluffy towel, you may need it if one of regulars is able to be regular again.

Next, here is your Tankard of "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh". As the current temporary bartander it is our own special brew. A stale pale ale so light that the foam is on the bottom.

Your tankard will have a place of honor on the mantel in the Red Dragon Inn Chat Room and Lounge. So when you return to the Inn you can find your Tankard and pull a draft from the Never Ending Keg.

The attack on this phase being drew an explosion of blood, but still it was able returned the attack with two of its own, this time gaining a solid hit. As it staggered back, attempting to keep its balance it failed going to one knee. With a loud roar of guttural sound, it lunged forward once more.

Ulthok had to act quickly to avoid the lunge. Though injured he used the magic in his boots of striding to aid him as he leapt up and over the yellow faced attacker. Although the Gith were tall this injured creature was down on one knee. It was easy to clear it and the blade. Ulthok had planned to twist in the air and then rush the Gith from behind, but as he soared he saw Cor splayed out on the floor, his lifes blood staining the floor. A Gith warrior with sword raising was about to finish the Knight’s Cleric’s life.

Without hesitation the Halfling moved to save his friend and long time companion. Knowing haste was needed to save his freind he drew upon magic for combat. Ulthok had used this spell so often it was as natural to him as breathing, so in full flight as if an angery bird he thrust out his hand and utter the words that loosed a barrage of five magic missiles into the back of the yellow faced killer that loomed over Cor.

If the missiles didn’t kill the creature maybe the distraction would be enough to save the Dwarv’s life. The angry Halfling would finish the job with his sword of lightening quickness.
