I was working on the assumption that everyone was getting out of the car as it is stationary and has a gas tank and is currently smoking from the engine. However I stand corrected, Romo is sitting in the car then. Not a problem.

I thought it was a good poem. I like that you didn't end the fight but had it continue onwards. I found myself thinking of a song called "Losing It" by Rush as your lyrics reminded of the rhythm of the song.

Subject: Catching Asher up to the ship time


“What were they doing? Why did you have to kill them?”

Luke's voice was calm but there was an edge to his voice, "Why? Why? They're Tong. You don't need a reason beyond that. Sure you can wait for your due process and proper authority until the cows come home, but that ain't gonna help none. These fellas are a disease, and me - I'm the cure." The sheriff holsters his pistol and looked across the roadway at Asher as if he was some kind of bug. "So who's side you on there Ash? Your captain seems a soft type - but what about you?"

Before Ash can answer there is the sound of people coming down the street. A group of town folk lead by John Blake and JW McClarrin. They are very distressed and JW is calling out "Mr. Pearson! What have you done?"

In a moment seemingly frozen in time, Ash sees the lawman hands reach for his guns. He is gonna shoot down these men as they call him out.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: The first battle


The Nazi attempted to bring his Schmeisser up to bear but Romo had his .45 out and fired two shots. The first only grazed the ear as the guard threw himself back, but the second round hit him hard in the shoulder and the impact forced him backward. He opens up with a burst of bullets that put holes on the car and one piece of lead into the Sarge. A wound to the side that knocks the big man to his knees. It could have been worse had it wasn't for Brutal at the moment leaping from the car to level the shotgun at the guard and fire both barrels into him. The guard stops moving completely as Brutal casual disards the shotgun (too long to reload) and brings up his Thompson.

McGuiness is standing and brings his sniper scope to his eye. Mentally he adjust for distance and fires the first shot, The shot blossoms in his back as McGuiness fires again for good measure. The guard is running no more.

The Nazi on the left moves to the cover of the building and fires at the car. His shot shatters a headlight. The Doc returns fire but only forces him to move further back. The other Nazi drops to the ground and also fires a shot. The radiator of the car takes one for the team and sprays out steam.

Luke attempts to fire with the luger but his shots are far wide.

Brutal takes off fast to the left, using the cover of the building against the guards as he moves to get around the house and attack from the other side. "Cover Me!" he calls out.

OOC: Two Guards are down. Two are left. One is on the ground prone to your right, the other is beside the gatehouse, using it as cover.

Romo is injured, taking a bullet to the lower side. He is bleeding but can still function (taken 6 wounds out of 14).

I am NPCing Brutal and he is taking the direct route which I thought was in character. Vanadia will post later but assume she is not attacking.

Subject: Okay


This is the way it is ....

My thoughts on the wave vs radio at the time and today is based on radio wave as I understand them and concept on how "waves" could work in Serenity.

Waves are long range messages through space that use tachyon pulse to make person to person possible over vast ranges of space. They need a pulse beacon and a powerful transmitter. Ash (in my mind) was going up spaceport and using the transmitter there.

Brigit waved you from her classroom, which mean she has some high tech (newtech) stuff.

Ash has a radio. Roc and Ash can communicate via radio if you are in atmo.

The shuttle has a stronger radio so you could try that when you were a few hours away from the planet.

NOW - if someone believes this is wrong and has a different opinion then sound off please. Communication is a very grey area in the TV series vs the Movie so I am open to different theories.

To send a wave you need a powerful transmitter and the handheld are not enough. You can contact Ash with radio from atmo but it would be very hard to scramble the signal.

Just a reminder that Brigit said she would meet you at the mine, not in town. She knows you are coming and she knows that is where you will want to go.

Regina, Frisco, Day Seven, 10:30 pm Planet Time

It did not take long for Asher to find the source of the gunfire. The main street was illuminated by the light from the saloons and shops along the way. The street was clear of people except Luke Pearson, standing like all was well as he loaded his pistol. Around him on the ground were three men, all Asian, and all dresses in the black and red outfits that identified them as members of the Tong. As Ash approached, Pearson whirled around quickly, pointing the newly loaded gun his way. The man was fast – real fast, but he lowered his weapon just as quick as he drew.

“You scared the gorram piss outta me!’ Pearson laughed, “You shouldn’t be hulking around at dark, you’ll get yourself killed.” He gestured to the men on the ground, “Seems like we have some criminal element in these parts. I found these low-life scum in Newhouse too. Bet there is a whole mess of them around too. “

(Assuming Asher starts to reply)

His eyes never look away from Ash as the young man tries to speak but Pearson’s left hand comes up quickly as he fires two quick shots down the alleyway without looking. The smoke from the gun clings to the night air forming an unholy halo around Pearson. The kid hears the sound of a body hitting the ground down the alleyway.

“I’m sorry. You were saying something?’ Luke asked, as if inquiring about the weather.

Rocinante, Day Eight 3:30 pm Ship Time

It had taken some time for Sam to feel sufficiently sure that his wave would not be traced or bounced. Willow had noticed long ago that Sam was a bit twitchy about such things and it was best to let him reach his comfort level. After a good while and some restrained cussing, Sam had patched her through to the Lullabelle Mine and the image on the screen was of Kora and Sam, side by side. There was a tension missing from Kora that Willow immediately noticed, and happiness in her eyes.

At first the conversation is light. Willow speaks of the events that have occurred after they left the mine and the who-what-where’s of the last few days. To Willow, Kora was still part of the crew and she needed Sam Hawkes’ trust so she didn’t hold much back.

“You know,” Sam pondered, “This Brigit sounds a lot like the woman that was clinging on Colonel Maddoc before the Lucius took off. Only then she was called Elizabeth. The crates we loaded were very heavy but I never looked inside them. I have heard all sorts of rumours of platinum bars but Maddoc wasn’t the type to take the money and run. Either way, we loaded the crates into the main vault of the ship.”

“How much could it have been?” Kora asked.

Sam shrugged, “30,000 bars would be a conservative guess. At 100 each that would be a lot of reasons to find it. You know … it sorta makes sense. JW won the Hornsilver mine in a card game before the war and no one thought there was anything left – tapped out. If the Newberry crashed, it could have opened and shifted the ground, possibly opening up a new vein. But the vault was double titanium reinforced chamber within the ship, so it could have survived the crash and been buried. I hate to say this but this Brigit might be telling you the truth.”

(assuming you ask about them meeting up with you)

“Sorry Willow but no can do.” Kora shakes he head, “We don’t have a ship worthy of travel. The shuttle we got won’t move fast enough or far enough. We had to let the Fulton’s leave – they were more problem than they were worth and just too many mouths to feed.”

Andrew Bowman opened up his console and attached the key to the adapter. He started slow, simple queries and probe to determine what was this key was for and why. The level of protection on it wasn’t great – after all, it was a door key for a mid-level security vault. It would, when attached to the vault console, prompt for a code and wait for its entry before releasing the door.

Then Andrew, feeling more confident, got into the source code within. There were names within that immediate showed him he was on the right track. The programmer had added commentary, confirming it was for the Lucius Newberry cargo vault. But the code was not there, not within the key as the sequence was an algorithm depending on the keypad attached. All he could tell was that it would be a four digit sequence. There was a note on the source code “Zaihai” but that didn’t mean anything to Bowman.

Rocinante, Day Nine 2:00 am Ship Time

Sam plotted a course and moved the ship into a hard burn. The ship jumped so fast that the usual gallop down the length of the ship seemed like a stampede. To get to Regina fast would burn a lot of fuel, but they would be there in 24 hours.

In the engine room, Wolf adjusted the manifold and worked the calculations again to adjust for maximum efficiency. But the book, they were operating at about 25% above defined safety limits. But Wolf knew that she would hold. Rocinante would always hold for them.

OOC: Meeting time? And we have to get Ash to the same time as you.
