Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: From Vanadia (who is locked out)


Angela smiled while tucking the bug into her upswept hair, “The casinos. Alliance keeps a tight leash on gambling activity in the verse. They would be monitored by the alliance gaming commission so there would have to be ports there. Video feeds, security stations. The best place would be the casino. Shall we?”

“Yeah… but there would be a lot of eyes watching those ports, wouldn’t that just be tougher?” Jon worried aloud.

Stephanie gave a little chuckle. When Jon looked at her she glanced at Angela’s dress. Jon cleared his throat, ”Oh..yeah…Ok then, the casino it is.” Jon fumbled with the brochure, “Let’s see the casino is…” but Angela had tired of waiting and was already walking away. The glance at the brochure had been enough, and she could almost hear the cacophony of forced merriment from where she stood.
As she stepped into the gambling establishment, a ripple of excitement went through her. A barely dressed cocktail waitress changed her course through the crowd to intercept them with her tray of drinks, only to veer off as another waitress appeared and hurried (without seeming to) to reach them with the complimentary bubbly.

“Good, “ Angela smiled to herself in a way that made Jon’s heart sink,” They’re going to take me seriously. First girl had the watered down dreck for the tourists, this girl’s got the high grade stuff.”

“Oh thank the stars!” she declared out loud breathlessly while swooping the nearest glass off the tray and taking a sip, “ I believe I’ve been here for two whole seconds without a drink! You ARE a doll for saving my life! Now, darling, I’ve only got this on me,” and she waved the Baron’s card merrily while taking another sip,” so help me find a lucky blackjack table so I can get my chips and thank you properly. Who’s lucky today, hun?”

The bemused waitress beamed at the thought of a gambling chip, as Angela knew she would. All the waitresses had readers in their trays (and in her cleavage, no doubt, for the creeps) but casinos tended to take a hefty handling fee for scanned tips. A chip was as good as cash, and Angela just made her first friend.

Cherry, as the waitress was called, led her to a blackjack table manned by a friend of hers, and Angela quickly surrendered the Baron’s card for a modest stack of hologram chips. The waitress’ smile faltered as she saw the chip stack, thinking she’d been played by a well dressed poser, but returned to full force as Angela plucked the highest value chip from the stack and set it on Cherry’s tray.

“For love and luck, hun, love and luck. Swing by once in a while with more bubbles and we’ll see how my luck’s running. The Baron and I have a little wager - he thinks this won’t last me more than a drink’s worth of playing, but I want to see just how far the rabbit hole I can go. This your friend? Hi Frank! Shall we play?”

Angela found herself a spot at the table at the far right of the dealer, where she’d get the last card before he dealt his own. She set her chips down and pushed forward a chip worth the minimum bet for the next hand. The first few hands never mattered, she needed to see all the cards to know how many virtual card decks the dealer was dealing, then she could start making educated guesses. In the meantime, she kept up a steady stream of idle chatter, a bored rich woman who clearly knew her way around a casino. Cherry would return periodically to bring fresh drinks and Angela made sure to tip her each time.

Once she had a bead on the cards, she was better able to assess what her fellow players had, and what the dealer had, based on the cards showing and the cards already played. When the odds were in her favour, she bet heavily (but never all in) and when they were against her, she kept to the minimum bet. Even with occasionally losing on purpose, her stack of chips grew, and Frank went from affably polite to carefully polite, and finally chillingly polite. She’d attracted a crowd of watchers, and it was getting hard to see past them to watch the security guards and pit bosses make their rounds, so after one last sizable win, she tipped Frank handsomely, finished her fifth glass of champagne (which burned a little at the back of the throat…had Cherry been told to get her tipsy?) and gathered up her chips.

Once away from the blackjack table area, Angela considered her options while pretending to sway a bit from her drinks. She needed a port for Grace’s bug, and every table had a port for the dealer’s ID, but an empty table wouldn’t stay empty long. Same with any waitress’ drink tray. She needed a port that was out of the public view and not routinely used. Her best bet was to win enough chips to go to one of the high rollers’ cashier offices, which offered privacy and security, or attract enough attention to get taken to a security office for a “discussion” of her gaming practices.

At that thought, a flash of light, seemingly behind her eyes, made Angela blink and shake her head. For a moment there, she’d been astride a hovercycle (a Harley Quinn, no less) racing away from a different casino, a heap of bodies in security uniforms behind her. With a second blink, she was back on the cruise ship. She tasted copper at the back of her throat and shook her head.

“Nope, nope, nope. Winning loads of cash, it is,” she muttered to Jon, and looked around for the craps tables. Maybe she’d been marked as a card counter, maybe not, but most cheaters were one trick ponies, so no one would expect her to be good at craps, too.

Subject: Finally - a post.


Moving quickly, Arien leaps charges to put himself between the Bard and the Winter Wight. The creature is fast in its attacks but although the cold if the creature is numbing, Arien’s armour defends him well from the icy claws. He strikes hard with his flaming sword and shatters the ice skeleton down the centre, leaving bones and slush in its wake.

Sparrow fires rapidly at the wight that is moving up the corridor towards Maximus. The bow she uses is particularly powerful against undead and the enchantment remains strong as she destroys the icy skeleton with her three arrows.

Maximus attacks the wight even as he can feel his life force fade within him. He manages a good blow against the creature. Odyson comes in to aid the rogue with his huge axe but not before the undead can strike Maximus once again with its Blackfire and claws. Odyson slays the wight with a few hard hits with the axe.

Lum forces her will and faith into a prayer of dismissal against the coming Ice skeletons and she too feels what Odyson felt before – the evil of this place limiting her powers. She too cannot turn or destroy these creatures.

Jarenion casts his spell and a wall of stone appears just in time to stop the other two skeletons from reaching you. Kadrin is left without an opponent to fight, much to the dwarf's disappointment.

You have a moment respite as the fire burning at one end and the stone hold the other. The fire will only burn for about 15 minutes and the undead are pounding on the stone wall. Two of your party are burning to death from a Blackfire that seems to be fueled by their very life.

OOC:
Maximus: Seriously wounded and down four constitution points (11)
Finarsil: Seriously wounded and down three constitution points (10)

You are trapped except to go further into the deep dark dungeon.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA........

"How long you figure the dead will stay dead Captain? Maybe someone was planning on burning the bodies." Sarge asked.

"The front door is easy enough to see - and be seen. What's the plan captain?" Corban asked quietly.

”Well Captain, do we all go up the same side or split half and half. Either way we still got go up there. Unless someone else sees another way in….. Star , Miller and me can take the left..Sarge, Hot Shot and you can take the right…Sir…” suggested Doc.

"This seems to orchestrated for my likes. The temple is too readily a vantage point over the area. I'd suggest we proceed with caution and the thought that whoever set this macabre play in motion knows we are about like mice in the dark. “Star said looking to the Sarge.

The captain looked over the scene of this misfortune wishing he had some answers for his men. He drew the same conclusion as the Sarge about what had happened here – the Nazis were piling the bodies to burn and the bodies rose up against them. He doubted that the four they killed were the only ones left.

“We will stick together, not divide the team. Too easy to get cut off from each other out there so stay sharp people.” Captain Edintore said firmly. “We will go in behind the trucks, check them out to see if there is any clues as to what is what around here and then up the nearest stair to the doorway. Sarge, you take point, Rat and Star, Doc you are with me and McGuiness in the rear. Questions?”

(Assuming none)

The team took their positions and moved across the sand, cautiously but with as much speed as they could risk. The Lorries were empty, left with keys in ignition and there were signs that they had been unloaded awhile ago (Lifts are down, fresh scrapes on storage area.) Rat sees something he thinks is a shell case but when he picks it up he discovers it a lipstick case (Passion Red #10).

The stairs up to the temple are worn from sand and time. At the top of the stairs, there are bodies of Egyptians and Germans alike. None or the dead are animating or moving in any way. It appears from the wounds that the Nazis figured out that head shots were most effective, although at least six germans were not fast enough to avoid being taken down.

The open doorway is illuminated from within by electric lights and you can hear the whirl and puttering of a generator from within. But you can also hear something pounding on a door or wall within the temple and the sounds of grunting and guttural moaning you have heard from the undead before.

I won't go into great detail but the daycare we used for our son with autism closed for the summer due to circumstances beyond our/their control and we are scrabbling in the middle of summer to find special needs daycare.

The casino is huge, located in the center of the ship, for this is one of the main attractions. To reach the Verbena restaurant, passengers are required to walk through the casino. The casino operates twenty-four hours a day and features faro, roulette, blackjack, poker, slot machines, pachinko, and mahjong. Rooms for private, high-stakes games are available to high rollers. Security is tight aboard ship and tighter in the casino. Cameras keep watch on players as well as the dealers. No money changes hands in the casino. Even the chips uses are holographic and the money is strictly controlled through a gaming authority system. Players gamble for credits that are exchanged for cash at the Purser’s Office.

The Lucky lady is decked out in red and blues with the waitresses and dealers dressed in form fitting red short skirts and blue half- tops that are made without buttons. The girls come around frequently offering free drinks. The main lobby is filled with many different forms of “slot” machine games with the tables for the other games as you move further back. There is a huge lounge/bar located in the centre of the casino where the servers wear less than the floor servers.

Security guards are clearly visible but they are not visibly armed. There are stations for clientele to load their cards and these all have the ports you are looking for, and each one has its own security guard. The place is moderately full with passengers, but not so busy that you cannot move around.

Rim’s Dream “Bridge” Day Five of Journey. 10:00 am ST

“Sir. I am picking up a distress signal from sector 7G.”

The Captain of Rim’s Dream looked up from his tea, “Sit Rep please, Corporal.”

“Yes Sir. I have a Firefly class vessel sending a distress signal from 7G. Long range shows completely burned out core. Six life signs, one female, and five males. They are on backup life support and battery power only.”

“Scan for weaponry and the like Corporal.”

“Already have sir. No weapons on the scan and with the little power they have, they’d be down if the have them.”

“Very well.” The Captain said and sipped his tea. There were unwritten rules about ships whether they roved the high seas of earth that was or the Black of the verse – Distress calls had to be answered because one day it could be you. “Send a patrol boat with a full security attachment and approach with caution.”

“Yes Sir!” the corporal flipped the communication, ‘Security this is the bridge. We got a DS-19 in sector 7G. Request recon and pickup but approach with caution, repeat approach with caution. No contact has been made.”

“Bridge this is Security control. We have target acquisition and will rendezvous. We will go for warm entry in 30 minutes.”
