Subject: ummm


If sharing the same god was all you needed to be able to communicate, then the word would be a much better place.

You unfortunately cannot communicate beyond pictograms and pointing with the Slaa'ker and tying them up eliminated both as an option.

So at this point I need to know which way you'd like to take.

The Leader Lizard is subdued, not dead.

I have posted. I had the Doctor direct the meeting into the Cockpit and add a bit of her own flair. Now you can discuss and we can move the day forward.

Love to See what Tann would like to ask Asante and what Catie was going to ask as well.

JC and Assante in Exercise Room

“So you knew Jon in the war huh, so what was he really like. I never really knew him though I was part of his unit, never was allowed too close to his ‘inner circle’.”

“Honestly, we really only had the one night and that was all. I wasn’t part of his unit and we just ... well we had a night. When I came abroad and saw him I thought it was a pure stroke of luck and things would be easy but you know the war changed us all. Back then, during that evening we had, he seem strong but venerable and more than a little human. “Asante sighed heavily and JC noticed the flirty mannerisms were gone now. She went on to say, “I meant what I said JC, you are walking into a death trap. The Baron and Templeton have a plan and an agreement between them and they won’t care about collateral damages. They can afford to find a deep hole to put the bodies in and when that happens, you will wish you listened to me.”

(i will leave it to Tann here to fill in conversation)

After an Hour in the Galley

The General comm link opened up across the ship and Grace’s cold and determined voice broadcasted, “If all members of the crew could come to the gallery, I got the info we need. And I mean crew only, guests can stay where they are and stay away from the gallery.”

Stephanie laughed and shook her head, “That’s our Gracie. Subtle as an anchor.”

A few minutes later, the mechanic appeared with printed papers and a dark look in her eyes. Grace groaned under her breath, muttering “I had a reason for wanting to talk without the guests” as she saw Lilianna, the brothers, Seth and Asante in the Galley.

“I know dear.” Stephanie said as she started to rearrange some medical kit, checking a few vials in the light, “But how about you, JC, Catie and Angela go to the Cockpit to talk and I will watch our guests. I am sure that no one will give me any trouble now, will they?” She said sweetly but the look she shot Asante was cold as ice.

(assuming you all go off without much ado)

“There now, “ Stephanie said pleasantly and she put another vial into her hypo-spray. “How are you feeling Seth?”

“Much better Doctor. Thank you.”

“That’s good. Now hold still.” She said and brought the spray gun up but at the last moment she jerked it away from Seth and planed into the neck of Asante.

*PHAFF*

“You fèi fèi pì gu biǎo zǐ!” Asante said and then her eyes rolled in her head and she fell to the ground like a wet sack of rice. Stephanie nudged the fallen woman with her foot and then put the hypo-spray away. “There now. I feel a whole lot better. Anyone feel like more tea? Maybe we can make some more pancakes too – I’m starved.”

Lilianna and the Brothers all looked at Asante on the floor and then to each other.

“Remind me not to cross you Doc.” AJ said.

“Yes. I’d advise that too.” Stephanie said with a smile.

After an Hour in the Cockpit

Everyone arrived on the Bridge and spread out so that everyone could see each other. Grace went over to the controls and activated the camera monitor and synced it to the Galley. She did that just in time to see Stephanie slip a “mickie” of something into Asante and watch her fall to the floor.

“Whoa.” Tess said with a whistle, “Remind me not to cross the Doc.”

“Alright so the cruise ships info was easy to find but that is going to be the only easy part. While there are multiple entrances, some being the more impractical than others, we are going to have to go to this one,” Grace pointed to the Docking on the map, “Since we have to deliver Lilianna and the Baron will be waiting for us there. At that point, it will be up to us to come up with excuses why we want to get on the ship so we can help Juliet over there.” Grace says passing out the brochure and papers on the cruise liner. “Staying on the ship will be of little use for us. Ever since a group of space pirates attacked the Star of Sihnon to steal some sort of violin, security has been beefed up on all cruise ships. Ships have to dock via airlocks that are screened for all weapons, explosives and other dangerous items. Security has a presence at all air locks. Ships are locked on to cruise liners by grav clamps and will not be released without permission. Security systems on cruise liners are now locked systems and do not access the cortex so I can’t hack it through the cortex. It would be better for us to get on the ship with some sort excuse that the Baron isn’t going to find suspicious, like Stephanie wanting to bring a sick patient to the Infirmary or something similar.” Grace shrugged her shoulders, “If anyone has got a good excuse why they should go on the ship or if any names look familiar among the passengers, now is the time to be mentioning it.”

I can understand that Angela might not have a lot to add at this point. Reralae, you said you wanted to ask Asante some questions before Grace came back, so please let me know what they are.

Are you leaving the passengers in on the Grace's revelation or not? Seth is well enough to talk now and I am not sure what information you need to hide at this point.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: bound to happen


Using the materials of the broken construct and the “leather” straps of the Slaa’ker, you manage to bind them. Three of them stay asleep by the wild one who was flailing about wakes up as you attempt to tie him up. There is a brief battle but the fight is quickly removed from the Lizard Leader with a hefty blow to the head from Gamard.

So you are now in the wine cellar with four prisoners you cannot talk to nor likely reason with, along with a dismantled naked wooden wine ninja.

OOC: Portal? Question the Slaa’kar because if you speak common loud and slow enough everyone can understand you?

Subject: Ninja dude is not alive to start


The Wine ninja (great name) is not alive in the first place. He is a construct. His body is made of wood and he is not anatomical correct either. The Slaa'ker have beaten him to the point of no longer functioning.

His clothes are a good alternative as they are made of high quality silk. You will need a knife to cut the seams but in the end it will serve as a good bond.

The Slaaker have very crude weapons and not bows. I will allow for them having at leather-like shoulder length bag that you can also use.

“Wembley, Dudley, gather their weapons as quietly as you can, then try to tie them up. The rest of us will stand ready with magic and blade if they should wake up to take them down. Let’s try to keep at least one, the leader perhaps, alive if they should seek to attack even unarmed. They may hold information to help us solve this damnable maze.” Crow says and the two Cidals do as he asks taking the weapons away but then they look to each other with some confusion and dismay.

“UMMM. There is a flaw in your plan.” Wembley says plainly, “We don’t have any rope.”

"Did anyone happen to understand what language they were speaking? If not they are of no real use to us. Although I am not overly fond of killing the defenseless, I am less fond of leaving potential enemies around to find us later." Alondas asked.

‘Nice little bundle as they are I would say hang them from the crow’s nest and set a guard to watch them. Alas it seems we are fresh out of crows nest here or rope.. As for parlay,’ Mal cleared his throat and looked to the party, ‘Bla Bla Bla Bla? Zip Zing, Group?’ he then smiled.

Ivan nodded his orange furred head, “Yeah, this is really uncool. Let them snooze so they cannot fight so then we exit, stage right."

Who has the rope? To tie up the Slaa'kar you would need some length of strong rope. I do not remember rope among the things you have taken. Booze, weapons, backpacks and disappearing food.

And you are correct in that no one in the party understands Slaa'kar.

Subject: Plans and the future


The problem with planning in advance is you don't know what is going on until you get there. I think the "we drop of Lilianna, get paid and then work out the next job" is a good start. Decide whether you are going to work with Asante or tie her up. Decide what to go with Seth if he chooses to join and not join

Then let the chips fall where they may.

Subject: duty


The Battle, Inside Rocinante, LV-426, 1:30 pm PT

Wolf was about to go out of the ship and seek out Asher when Sung pulled the mule right up into the cargo bay, past the gunner sweeping up, and leapt from the seat, immediately working to reload his weapons. the Marshall nodded to Wolf, "You take care of your own. I got people to kill, places to be.' And he headed back out to the fields.

As wolf approached the mule, he heard over his comm (As does Wyatt) "“Ma is safe, I’m leaving her here near the shuttle……….I need to get to the caves.”

"John's in the infirmary. You wanna stop these bastards, that's the best way for it." Wyatt stepped back from the mule to allow Havelock room to disembark. "Besides, this gentleman warrior could use some patchin' up. C'mon Havelock. Let's see about some bandages."

"Pish Posh!" Havelock said pushing himself upright and away from the Captain. "I am fine. Well I remember ..."

Suddenly the sound of gunfire erupted from above. Steady, non-stop rounds from the auto cannon of the ASREV mixed in with the ricochet of some rounds of the hull of the ship. Good thing that they captain had pulled inside when he did but there was nothing to do but duck down and wait for the cascade of bullets to end. There was a terrible whirring noise and then the sound of metal ripping apart.

Then there was an awful crash. Louder than the gunfire and the force of the impact caused the ship to jump and shift, knocking everyone to their feet. Despite the damage and beating that Rocinante had taken, it stayed upright and the landing gear held against the shock.

Once the ground stopped moving, Every stood up except Havelock who was no bleeding badly again. Nancy grabbed one arm of old soldier while Tess took the other. Wyatt looked at Wolf with a expression that spoke volume. The mechanic put his hand on his weapon and nodded to show the Captain he understood the sentiment - Trust no one.

As they turned around the corner, the smell of burnt equipment filled their noses and then as they approached the infirmary - they saw the quarantine doors were sealed. Nancy ran to the doors, leaving Tess with Havelock and looked inside but what she saw made her shake her head. "Captain? I think this was one of yours." she said is a quiet voice.

Wyatt ran to the doorway of the infirmary and looked in. There had been a fire within, the walls and table were scorched and blackened. On the floor was John, not moving. He had fallen on top of a cable running between the wall and the receiver that John had set up. In a glance, Wyatt knew what had happened. The cables had caught fire, the fire repression system had activated in the infirmary and started pumping out the air. John, know that the cables would not hold, fell on them so the circuit wasn't lost. John gave his life to keep the mercenaries down.

The Battle, Asher near Rocinante and destroyed shuttle LV-426, 1:15 pm PT

Asher keyed his comm, “Ma is safe, I’m leaving her here near the shuttle……….I need to get to the caves.” Asher prepared to head back the help Vasques when Trish grabbed his sleeve and pointed to pink shotgun laying in the dirt. The grabbed the gun and when he turned Ma was limping toward him there with her hand out. He just knew she wasn’t going to stay put.

Then all hell broke loose. The ASREV opened up with full auto cannons on the corvette, taking out the back engines with a vengeance. Asher wasted no time and dove for cover, taking Ma down with him and dragging her under the debris of the shuttle. The ASVRE was bent on destroying the engine core of the corvette and it seemed to work as the large ship came down fast and hard. The impact shook the ground beneath them like an earthquake. Asher looked up and over at Rocinante expecting the landing struts to buckle but the old workhouse held steady as if an angel was watching over it.

LV-426, The Caves 1:30 pm PT

“Lord Hood, you’ve…you’ve done too much already… I cannot ask this of you. The case is useless without the man who can open it, and even if your wealth and stature were enough to protect you, that poor violinist would be dead the moment the case was open.”

Willow stared off into space a moment as if considering, but her words were already prepared. Just as she was about to speak, she got a message from her comm from Asher, "“Ma is safe, I’m leaving her here near the shuttle……….I need to get to the caves.”. Willow repressed her smile at the good news and continued.

“In fact, I’m not sure your status would be enough protection, my Lord. These are, “mercs” I believe the term is, and all they care about is money. I’m sure whoever hired them made very sure to do so through many intermediaries, so as to not put himself into their hands. I’m afraid they would hold you long enough to make you transfer considerable wealth to them, and then you’d disappear.”

“No,” she shook her head as if only just deciding, and straightened her shoulders, “ no one is going out there. Help is on its way, with everyone’s personal beacons pinging the cortex, so we just have to wait them out. Let’s give them a reason to not knock our doors down, shall we?”

With that, she pulled out Matheson’s PADD (watching Hood out of the corner of her eyes for a reaction) and thumbed it to life. Setting the message to wide broadcast, she tapped while reading the words out loud,” The case has been placed behind the door, blast it open at your own risk.”

The reaction was very brief, but it was enough to shatter any doubts Willow had of who was the mole. Lord hood eyes flickered to the PADD and for a second she saw fear in his eyes - fear that he had made a mistake.

Lord Hood moved quickly and suddenly, grabbing Jessie and producing a handgun that he held up pointing at the young lady's head. "That is enough Doctor." He said coldly, "This is a very powerful gun and I am sure you don't want to watch this girl die slowly as her inners dissolve. Time for games are over now. You will get me the violin now!"

There was a brief moment of tension, Jessie looked not so scared as pissed off. The boys took a step back, Sheldon fainted.

And then the ground shook violently. It was like an earthquake or being near a large vessel crashing but it was so strong that everyone lost their footing. Pebbles and some rocks fell from the ceiling.
Jessie took advantage of the shock and spun her small clutch bag around in a loop, clobbering Lord hood on the head with a solid whack and some hard damage. Blood poured from his forehead into his eyes and he could not see to aim. Jessie then kicked the gun pout of his hand and rolled away to get some distance.

The Varon-T flew across the chamber and landed in the dirt by Willow's feet.

The Battle, Leaving Atmo, Black Bart's Shuttle LV-426, 1:30 pm PT

Black Bart swore repeatedly as his emergency shuttle left Atmo and headed into the Black. The job was a complete wash now and he only escaped with his own life. he'd have to lie low for awhile but once this blew over, then he'd find that Lord Hood and get some re-compensate for what just happened.

Then he realized he wasn't alone in the Black. The federal Marshalls were here in force, actually it looked like all the Federal Marshalls in the alliance were here above this LV 426. An ASREV flew by and hit the shuttle with an EMP, shutting down his system as another ship grabbed the shuttle with a grav-mag clamp.

"Attention. You are bound by law. We are Federal Marshalls and you are bound by law."

Black Bart swore more and more.

The Battle, LV-426, 1:32 pm PT

ASREVs and ASFS entered the atmo and swooped over the scene of the battle. The heavier personnel carriers came in shortly after that. All of them broadcasting over speaker. "We are The Federal Marshalls of the Alliance. Drop all weapons and surrender. You are bound by law. We have assumed control. We have assumed control."
