Ok, I didn't get the post up, but I should be able to write Monday night at the motel. Just wanted to post in character a little more as Jon pulls together the information from everyone. Whaat is about tell him and
Tess won't change what he has to because it mostly deals with the brothers.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Strike Back.............

Ulthok turned back into the room after cast cone of cold down the hall from his wand. Before him appeared a tall armor clad, yellow skinned creature. It swung its glowing silver sword with the skill of trained Knight. Luckily Ulthok’s own armor and nimbleness prevented the attacker from inflicting much damage.

While dodging and weaving in defense as the creature struck the mage was able to hide his wand away and then draw his (+3) Sword of Lighting Quickness. The strange creature loomed over the Halfling and prepared to attack again. The mage relied on the magic of the sword to grant him the ability to return the attack with the haste he needs to strike twice and with the gantlets of giant strength to drive the attacks deeply and painfully into this over confident grinning foe.

Ok, so I get it right.

We need to NOT plant the bombs in the hills?

Asher does not need to fly with Tess to use the missle?

We are going to attack the ASRV, but we don't know it might the good guys?

We are not sending out picture to draw them away.

We may or may not be going to the cave to defend it.

We may or may not be staying to defend Roc.

Sure I got it, just tell me who to kill.

Subject: A Little More Even.......

“Now that’s not fair….”, the little dragon watched as several of the yellow creature vanished from the target area of her spell. When they reappeared one stepped in to surprise attack her Ulthok. But her companion though struck was able to dodge and defend himself. She felt him planning his response and so glance to see if she might help the others.

The battle raged and the magical fey noted that Sirene’s targets, though hit they were turning to join forces against the Enchantress. “Three against one… that’s not fair either.” Then with a slight flip of her wrist Peri cast Confusion over the three hide wearing yellow faced creatures…and with any luck perhaps it would catch the three Illithids too.

Snatching the gleeming coin from the air Odyson slapped it to the bar, "That is more than kind of you friend, concider you paid for all you care to enjoy this evening". Turning the galley serving window he beakoned out,"Igor... a plate of fresh figure sandwiches for our guest." From behind the wall came a mumbled response and the then the terrified shouts of the young dish washer. " No Igor... not those figures.. we need the lad to able to hold the dishes or they will never get clean.... make them from the cold cuts in the meat locker." Turning back to the guest, "sorry about that.. the poor fellow can be so literal at times."

From behind the bar in the Red Dragon Inn Chat Room and Lounge the fuzzy werebear bartender heard the Inn door open and the voice of long missing adventurer chime through the halls.

"May the Gods breath some life into this fine establishment. Amen"

To that the Ody chimmed out," In here friend... Come warm yourself and share in the comfort of the Inn." The smiling bear stepped out from behind the bar and waved the visitor into the Lounge. The vaguely familiar figure casualy strolled in. "Fear not for quiet of the Inn..tis only the Winter Dulls. The adventures have gather at home and harth with family and friends and the younglings are concerned with new studies, but soon they will be drifting back." Drawing a frosty mug of Good Old Froth-n-Slosh...."I'll check you and help you settle, soon the Inn will be filling and lounge will be the place of Legendary tale, stories, poems and the forming of new parties." Sliding the mug to the visitor the bartender asked, "Do you want some finger sandwiches?"

Good to see return players.

As the current acting Bartender here at the Inn here's a new frosty mug of "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh" our stale pale ale that's so light it has the foam on the bottom.

That's almost exactly the way I drew the map locations. Only real difference was I had Crow over closer to the wall by bows and arrows. That's why he dashed to hide behind him. Gotta love those big meat shields.

Dudley heard Ivan's reply just as the column opened and three ghastly creatures emerged. One of the clawed, fanged hairy beast charged toward Dudley with a not very friendly look in its eye.

As the beast approached on him Dudley tapped himself and Grim on the head and cast Invisible to Animals. The Cid then bolted to hid behind Crow.

(O.O.C., If Grim is standing close enough Dudley will tap him also so they both vanish.)

Subject: Wet Blanket.......

I don't want to seem like a wet blanket but the what killed Dillon and the guards sounds like a implant in their skull, not in the helmet. If it popped it was very likely destroyed as it discharged. It would take surgery to open the skull and see what it was. And each went off separately so each is tuned to its own trigger. So it sounds more like we will be bluffing.

If we had a way that may have recorded the triggering pulses frequency then with the three pulses we might find the range. A device that would send out a continual pulse across a tunable broadcast range could hit the correct triggers as it was dialed up and down.

I could have Asher bring this up.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Don't Know About The Fever, But.......


I understand why the People
in the Northwest
say the canoe is sacred,
that the canoe has a spirit.

We know that a cedar tree
can tell us by its rings
when salmon runs were big,

when bears and eagles

and wolves feasted on salmon,
and left the carcasses
near the trees,

and the carcasses decayed, and
the nutrients went into the soil,
and into the roots of the trees.

And what else do we know, but perhaps
this tree grew where an Ancestor
had been buried,

that the Ancestor fed the tree, that
the Ancestor’s flesh became the tree’s
flesh, that the Ancestor’s blood
became the tree’s sap?

And what else do we know, but that
This tree continued the life,
growing to great heights,
providing shelter for birds and
other animals,

providing bark fiber for clothing,
and for fishing nets,

providing bark fiber for baskets
in which to collect berries or cook shellfish,
fine woven baskets that are passed from
mother to daughter, and from grandmother
to granddaughter?

And when the tree’s time was done,
it was felled,
and became a canoe,

a seagoing canoe that carried the People
on waters the Ancestor knew,

carried the People to gatherings and
sacred ceremonies.

And what else do we know, but perhaps the
song that comes out on the water to a puller
in the canoe
is a song from the Ancestor,

a song of thanks for continuing the
circle of life,
and respecting the interconnectedness
of all living things,

a song of thanks for respecting
the sacredness of life?

Subject: Protecting The Rear?

The Halfling Mage had determined that there were no traps on the door and started to push it open. Peering down the length of the hall there charging toward him were perhaps twenty of the large Orcs and even larger Ogre Orcs. He turned to warn the other to fall back and saw four Illithids appear and dozen more creatures.

Ulthok could see they were caught between two advance menace. With the party between him and the Illithids Ulthok decided to slow the advancing Orcs. While using the door to shield himself he pulling out his wand of frost a cone of cold down the hall, filling the passage with a freezing force that washed over the Orcs and Ogre Orcs. When the blast had left the wand Ulthok slammed the door shut and turned to aid his companions.

While Ulthok was looking down the hall Peri turned to see the yellow skinned creatures appear. They seemed to be really enthralled with their glowing swords, so much so that they secured their grib as they prepared to charge. “Well we’ll just have to see about that, maybe those shinney swords should slip from their grip.” With that the little faerie dragon cast “grease” on the swords of the six charging creatures.

(O.O.C., Those would be C1,2,3,4,5,6)

The party passed though a portal and as they all entered a room full of weapons the cat piped up, “Oh dear!” Says Ivan with a dramatic air of dread. “Not this room! This is where that thing with the claws and the fangs and the hey hey hey came out of that block there. Better arm yourselves fast dudes because we are going have company.”

Dudley noted,"Well lucky for us we can choose from such a grand selection." With that the cleric moved the wall and selected a fine looking Horseman's Mace. Dudley has been about to cast Detect Magic to indentify which Mace might be enchanted but he remember this whole place was most like made by magic and that would have negated benefit of the spell. So he just left it to chance that his Goddess would guide his choice.

While Dudley practiced briefly with his new weapon he called over to Ivan. "Say there Ivan... how did you escape this room the last time you were here with the Hey Hey Hey???"

Subject: Magic?

Would casting of detect magic help to show any weapons with bonus?

Dudley must use blunt weapons but a +4 Horseman's Mace would be a better choice over a plain club. You said the mace wall was full so there would be several to choose.

Also you said to choose quickly so does he have time to select a mace from one side of the room and a sling from the other?

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Crew Meeting....

Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Destiny Exercise Room, 8:00 pm ST

The anger of the day led Jon right to the heavy bag. Having to lace his own gloves only added to the need to beat the hell out of something. Starting a rhythm of jams and punches he began the vision that little varmint Badger making him look foolish in front of his crew. The cocky little thug knew they had to play his game his way, but there was never a need to make himself puffed up. Standing there in that room full of trash that the Huen Dahn thought was treasure only made matters worse. But the bully had the connections and the jobs they needed to get establish. Thing had to go better this time.

The sweat started to glisten off his ruddy skin as he continued to deliver blows to the bag. …Jon pounded harder. Now Stephanie was acting odd, she’d used her trained manner to lay a guilt trip on him. She was acting like a jealous school girl…saying he’d look for younger girls. And what did she mean become more important to you than this ship, but I see now I will always play the other woman. Jon continued to pound harder. .thud thud..thud thud thud. Although it felt good to release his anger on the bag it was not easing the frustration in his mind. Working on the heavy bag was not clearing his mind.

Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Destiny Exercise Room, 9:00 pm ST

When Jon joined Independents he had to go through training along with every other soldier, but he found that the officers were required to practice the T’ai Chi moves. The 108 moves were drilled the same other lessons. He had seen how some others simply endured the training, but he felt the serenity and calm the fluid disciplined moves brought. Removing the gloves and his shoes Jon slowed his breathing and began to routin.

…….Creeping Low Like a Snake,………. Step Up to Seven Stars,……… Retreat to Ride Tiger,………… Turn Around to Sweep Lotus,…………. Draw Bow to Shoot Tiger,…… Chop with Fist,…………. Step Up, Deflect,………….. Parry, Punch,…….. Appear to Close Entrance,…….. Cross Hands,………. Closing of Tai Chi.

The one hundred and eight slow moves of the Tai Chi had become nearly a ritual to Jon since the time he had enlisted. They had been told that it had been use all the way back to Earth that was. The slow methodical exercise helped him control the stress and set his thoughts in order. The young captain knew what he needed to do.

Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Destiny Captans Quarters, 10:00 pm ST

Jon returned to his room, shower and change clothes. The captain rested as he reviewed the flight plan Tess had filed. He needed to fill the time until shopping party returned. Knowing the galley would be empty for a while he made his way down there and prepared himself a light meal. Moving about the cook stove he remember the night Stephanie had come in while he was making a soup for the crew. That was night he realized how he felt about her. It was something that ..just was. Now he knew it would be what it would be, time would tell. Jon knew naming the ship Destiny was correct… and it was proving to be that again.

As he finish cleaning up after his meal he heard Tess and the others returning. They took a little time to store the bulk goods and then entered the galley with remaining items. The last of the supplies were being put away when he addressed the women, “Stick around, we need to hash out a few things before we head into this job.” Walking to the ship’s comm. he flipped open the mic, “Crew to the galley…. Bring any info you got that might need know’n.”

Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Destiny, Galley, 11:00 pm ST

Jon had been pacing a bit as the crew had gather. When they were all there, “ This job doesn’t as good as it could and we need to go over a few things. “ He wasn’t sure just where to start so he just jumped in, “ Just in case something happens I wanted to be sure you all knew the Tess is in charge if I ain’t around. If’n we both aren’t around then it’s Grace’s boat, you go to her and she’ll figure things out.” Jon feel them looking at him, “I ain’t saying anything will happen… but … well… things don’t always go right and some of you are new and I.. just.. want to be sure you knew.” Jon fidgeted a little and blow out short breath, “Ok, enough of that.” He turned to Angela, “You done real good for us today, I need to thank you for helping me when Badger had me stuck. You got us about the best we could hope for out of that man….I’m glad you’re here. You may surprise me from time to time but you don’t need to worry about upsetting me…I’ll let you know up front and honest if I’m not happy…and for now I’m happy.”
Turning back to the crew, “This job just has a feeling that there is more going on than we are suppose to know. Grace…if they try to bring something on board I want you to figure a way to check it out. We don’t want to be surprised by another wine barrel with a hidden package.”
“Ok, I don’t need to do all the talk’n, Tess, Grace , J.C. what you all find out today?”

Jon opened the meeting for discussion.
