Subject: Color Deaf.........

Wolf had no sooner replied ,“I have no idea what I need, what the guay is going on?”, when the strangers voice came across the comm.

“Asrev’s got missile lock, disable the pulse beacon.”

Asher was confused at first but the realized that Wolf had not been on the ship long and had very little ship experience before hand. No wonder he was confused.

“Pulse beacon?” Asher looked to Wolf who’s eyebrow were furrowed. Then he remember that Kora had told him , “You love it, protect it.” She’d shown him how she’d put backups and shunts in all the major circuits.

Pointing to the port control panel Ash said ,”There, it’s in there.” The kid rushed to the panel and yanked out the door. Kora had coded the circuits so she’d know at glance were trouble might lie. The young man stared at the maze of wires, each seeming to have it’s own color wrap. Kora always seemed to hum a tune as she worked the wiring; Ash now realized it was her code.

Closing his eyes tried to remember those days working with that dark hair beauty who ran a no nonsense engine room. He could see her, but couldn’t hear her.

Opening his eyes he mutter, “Gorrum, I guess it’s just Blue for Beacon”. He reached into the box and grabbed the blue wrapped shunt and jerked it out.

Standing there holding the wire he looked at Wolf and said, “I sure hope it wasn’t Purple for Pulse!”

So tired tonight, our Pre-Assessment didn't go as well as I would have wanted. Nothing we can't get over but it was draining. Then I got a flat tire in the parking lot of a local resturant. AAA said it take an hour to get a local truck there to help. I had it changed before they got there.

So I'm just it a good place to write Asher's post.

So Roger just chill and we'll be there soon!

Me Too............

Time, time, time, see what's become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the salvation army band
Down by the riverside, it's bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
[ Lyrics from: ]
Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That's an easy thing to say, but if your hope should pass away
It's simply pretend
That you can build them again
Look around, the grass is high
The fields are ripe, it's the springtime of my life

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

I look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Look around, leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground...

Look around, leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground...

Look around, leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground...

See it even sort of fits, lol.

Subject: Act 2.................

The Kid just shook his head slowly as he looked at the man sprawled unconscious on the passage way floor. Gater may have had the skill to fly a boat but he sure didn’t have the judgment and common sense needed to pilot this boat.

Trish signed to Asher to “take out the trash.” The gunslinger respectfully nodded to the woman that had just cold cocked the arrogant fool now lay on the floor. Ash reached down, grabbed the man’s collar and drug him down to the cargo bay. When the Roc had landed he hit the hatch control, hefted the Tian Di Wu Yohn Luh Suh (Completely useless Garbage) and dumped him off in the long grass.

Asher returned to his cabin to clean the mess caused by the antics of the last candidate. It didn’t take long to get things back in order.

The comm clicked on and a bright female voice came over, “Alright boys, we’re gonna take her nice and easy. Couple of loop overs, barrels, and an Immelmann or two. Dependin’ on how this girl feels after that, I might’n be going fer a defensive spiral. Nothin’ too taxin’ on those grav dampers.” He had felt the Roc lift off with a smooth purposeful movement. With his guns now secure in their cabinet he stretched out on his bunk.

Just as it starting to feel right thing went wrong. The klaxon blared and Ash was on his feet and out of his cabin. Wyatt had practiced them before so in an emergency folks acted, not waiting to see if it was a false alarm. Asher’s place was down in engineering so he was bounding down through the cargo bay and into the heart of the Roc.

As he took the place he had been assigned by Kora when she’d been his mentor in the engine room that calm female voice once again came over the comm. “I highly suggest ya’ll hold onto sumthing. This might’n be an Angel of Death, Hope you boys is ready down in engineerin’. Things might’n be gittin’ a little dicey.”

Ash looked over to Wolf, “You tell me what you need.”

Subject: Dragon's Helm

Anyone interested and a little side story? I thought that while in Dragon's Helm we could find out if the Captain actually provided for the survivers with the money Ulthik gave him?

Seeing Lothor doesn't trust this guard and the Captain already showed his arrogance it could prove a bit of fun for Ulthok, Valene and Lothor.

I thought something along the line of the survivers were told they must sell the soldiers their wagons and some personal items to pay for their stay in the refugee camp. The coins Ulthok gave would have more than covered the need.

Word gets back to Lothor (he could over hear it at a tavern or the House of Ill Reute)and he complains more to Valene about how the "Tax Collectors" treat even the unfutunate.

Ulthok over hears and decides to pay the Captain a visit to recover the coins amd perhap leave him with a life lesson. Valene and Lothor could be in on it.

Loki, that is great to leave the jest of your, it give all of us chance to figure what to write. I'm finding that the Q&A is way under used to let folks know what up.

I too have been busy, but with work. I've had late nights and brain burn out from trying to get us ready for a automotive registration audit for TS16949. I have upgrade all of out quality documentation and try change from ISO 9001.

As for Asher when he hears the kloxon he is headed to Engineering to lend Wolf a hand. He's alway been the trainee and go-fer so it would be his normal station in flight. He used to help Kora when she was engineer. He has a d6 for engineering so he can help.

Tann you can write whatever you need Ash to do to help. I'll follow your lead in the post after to support the action needed in the engine room.

Getting Gator off the bridge opened things up for Tess. With the "Angle" coming I made a wild guess she would be piloting the escape from it. Even though the crew doesn't know it yet.

I was having Asher make a minor interaction with Tess too.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Innocents.........

Just as Ulthok was about to cast out his cone of cold a massive concussion blast erupted from the end of the wagon train. But he couldn’t let it distract him, the wargs were charging his friends and they needed him. The explosion added panic to the charge and drove the wargs into his spell.

The cone of cold leap from his hands creating a zone of death for the wargs. Once again luck had smiled on the party. The explosion had decimated Orcs and wargs on the near side of the wagon train and the panic drove the wargs on the far side to their death. The remaining creatures around the wagons were quickly dispatched by party and now only the foes left were the ten mounted Orc riders charging back toward the wagons.

Ulthok made his way down from the wagon to stand with his mates to face the charging wargs. As the party fanned out the wargs riders must have realized that their companions were destroyed by this small band. Turning the riders headed away to the hill.

As the party watched the retreat they heard the blare of a horn and nearly a company of mounted cavalry topped the hill and charged the Orc riders.

The human riders made quick work the Orcs, then some went to assist the woman and children, the leader made his way to the party by the wagons.

“Hail Travelers! I am Captain Ratliffe, Callahorn 7th Mounted Cavalry, out of Dragon’s Helm. We saw your horses picketed as we patrolled and then heard the fighting so we decided to lend a hand. However clearly you did not need it” A huge grin of a smile upon the man’s face.

“So who among you is leader, if you have one?”..........

Cor had join the party,"A leader for this band? T'would be as easy ta name the royal cat shepard. I guess I am as close to one as we had lad but it more like spokesperson than anything else." Cor looked around a moment. "If ya will forgive me, I'd like to check and see if any need healing before we continue our talk." With that, Cor once more turned his attention to checking the survivors.

Ulthok waited for a chance to speak to the Captian and found him few minutes later. Lowering his hood exposing his cherub smile,” Sir, I pray you will take of these poor women and children. We arrived too late to help and save their husbands and sons. They died bravely trying to protect others. These left have suffered dearly, please see them safe to the nearest town or village.” Pulling a small pouch of gold coins from his belt, “ See to it this is shared among the survivors so at least they may fine shelter for a while as they grieve.” The mage tossed the pouch to the Captain. As the mage walked away the Captian opened the pouch to find 20 platinum coins.

Ulthok never cared much what happen to fighter but innocents should not suffer.

Subject: "Dude................."

Remove old lockset, disassemble strike plate and clean plate receiving area.
Measure depth of deadbolt penetration and align strike plate TR34065 with receiver location.
Measure alignment location. If replacing a BlueSun security cabinet lockset ,match model number to replacement list for mounting match location.
This model TR 57634 BIOtech Storage Security Unit is designed for the greatest unauthorized access deterrence with simplest ease installation.

“Sure that sounds great but why won’t it open?” Ash poured over the installation and operating instruction of his new TR 57634 BIOtech locks he’d just installed on his gun cabinets. All three cabinet were the same GSB4578 BlueSun gun security cabinets. They were matched serial numbers and they were listed on the replacement list that came with the units. He’d followed the programming and the other two had operated fine.

Ash had left his quarters in hoping that getting away would help make things clearer. He’d made his way through the cargo bay to just outside the engine room. If the kid couldn’t figure it out he’d fetch the plasma cutter to remove he lock.

Just as Ash was about to toss the gorram papers, Wolf and a stranger came through to the engine room.

(O.O.C. assuming Wolf would briefly introduce John )

Wolf stopped as he and a stranger noticed Asher's frustration. The mechanic gave a brief introduction to John and said that he was here for the pilots test. Wolf had said the man helped him outside and Capt’n was allowing him to follow up it the engine room.

The man noticed the specs in Asher’s hand ask what had him so twitchy.

With a weak smile Ash said.” I put these new locks on my cabinets and one won’t open. I’ve tried everything I can think of and I was about to get the cutters and burn the gorram thing out.”

The stranger held out his hand asked if he might see the paper. Ash looked skeptical, but Wolf gave him a nod so the kid handed the papers to John.

John chuckled as he opened the papers. He told Ash it was a good model but they have their quirks. First thing he recommended was to just give the doors a good swift kick.

Besides feeling good it could align the lockset. Sometimes that’s all it was. They can be sensitive if doors were not completely closed. He showed the Kid quickly that the locks had a three way interface that had to be complete and aligned if the lock were to open.

John asked if the BIO light had flashed green when Asher had started the I.D. set up. Once that was set no one else could open the lock even if they had the combo. Ash confirmed that it was set up.

John told him there were only two choices left. First if kicking the door doesn’t work then the number code could be reset. There was small hole on the side near the key pad, inserting a wire would reset the combination and allow the number to be re-entered . It was almost like starting over, doors closed, BIO active and the proper code sequence. So align the door and reset code, that should work.

The Kid smiled and then asked,” What the other choice?”

John handed him the papers and told him, “Burn the garrum thing out!”

Wolf and John headed to engineering and Ash went back to his cabin.


Back in his cabin Asher stood in front of his troublesome gun cabinet. Drawing from the lessons he’d shared with Willow he placed a graceful yet powerful side kick right on the seam between the doors.

John had been right, it did feel good to lose his frustrations on that chunk of steel.

Nothing seemed to have moved.

Grabbing the handle and entering the code proved to that indeed the doors had moved, the handle moved smoothly and door pulled open.

Smiling the kid breathed.” Tian-Ling-Ling, Di-Ling-Ling. (Abracadabra-alakazam). Reaching in Ash took out his Peace Makers and his cleaning tools.

It was a good day the kid was in his zone as he went through the comfortable routine of disassembly and cleaning the tools of his trade. As he sat he had felt and heard the familiar rumble of the Roc’s engines starting up. The pilot tests had started.

But then without any warning over the comm all hell started breaking loose. His gun parts started to scatter as the boat suddenly dropped and then accelerated.

Before he could get out his chair to start picking up the parts he felt the inertia shift as the Roc must have gone into a tight turn. He was pinned to the seat as the craft again turned only this time he could tell they heading away from the surface.

With the sudden shift also came a momentary lose of gravity. Asher’s container of cleaning fluid floated off the table and when the garv kicked back in it crashed down, spilling out into Asher’s lap, soaking him in petrol smelling liquid.

“Tian Fuhn Di Fu,( sky tumbles while earth turns over) what the garrum are those Chwen”s(retarded) people doing up there?”

As Ash gained his feet and started head out of cabin he hear Rocinante’s gallop that let he know they were going to full burn. But this time it wasn’t the strong confident sound he usually knew it was more like something terrified trying to escape.

That was the last straw, he had to get to the bridge before what ever fool was flying his home could kill them all.

Racing up to the bridge he saw he wasn’t alone, Trish was on the move with her pink shotgun and the fellow he’d met with Wolf was taking stairs two at a time.

As the kid entered the bridge he heard Wyatt’s voice.” “Get the hell outta my pilot’s chair.”

That was all the needed, he started for man. The kid was going to show this Feh Feh Pi Goh (Baboon’s ass crack) what public relations was all about. But before he reach the fool the small goggled girl standing behind the pilot’s station step up and planted her fist squarely in the man's face.

The man reeled back and Asher grabbed him by the collar and shoulder, taking the man’s own movement Asher nearly flung him out the door into the passage way. As he passed the girl on the bridge he nodded his approval .

Then holding him by the collar and grabbing Gator’s belt Ash lifted him to his tiptoes and rushed down the gangway to the nearest passenger cabin.

“You just cool your jets here for the rest of the flight, if have you have any smarts you won’t show your face until we land. It’s a long fall from where you brought us and the Capt’n is ready see if you can fly back without us. ”

Ash started to turn to head back to the bridge but stopped, looking back at Gater he said, “Dude!”
