Subject: Sounds good


The Doc would do that for you, but he'll want to fill you in on what's happen while you've been out. I was gonna post it after you did yours but here is the gist:

"Things are bad in town Son, real bad. John Blake is dead, JW was wounded, and then things went to hell in a handbasket fast. Bailey is missing since this morning as well. Seems that Sheriff Luke has found himself some deputies to do some of his dirty work, four real mean pieces of work and they killed a bunch of the Tong and set fire to their temple. Cleaning up the town they call it - makes me wish those purple bellies were still in the sky. Never thought I'd be saying that. Everyone is so scared now that people are hiding in their homes and hoping that they ain't noticed.

"Now Brigitte had a talk with Sheriff this afternoon alone in the jailhouse and I haven't seen either one since. She been asking about your health alot but I've made you sound worst off than you are. Don't know why, but I just feel like it is best that she don't know everything I reckon."

"Sure I can get you stuff if they ain't too heavy but if I go walking around with a cannon on my back they be questions so clue me in on what you need and whether I need to hook up my cart."

There is one hole in the radiator and one severed hose. I am not looking for you to come up with a length discourse on how you are gonna fix it. (Luke looks at the engine. "Damn. get me anything and everything that looks like a tool or scrap metal. Now! Lady, lose the hose because I might need them.") Remember you have 6 plot points so if you want to boast your skill in repair, let me know.

Lots of room under the bridge. See picture I posted.

You are closer to the castle than the village. If the car is dead, then it will be a very long hike. Speaking of the car, Luke does have land vechicle repair so he can make an attempt to assess and fix. There may be some tools in the guardhouse or the truck and there is alwayd improvision.

How long can a car run without a radiator? I'm not mechanically inclined.

Subject: This is how it is


My post was a bit vague so I will try to explain what happened. My apologies for this sometimes I get so behind that I rush my posts and don't re-read them.

Asher was facing Luke (Luke to the North). Luke drew on the Townfolks (Coming from the North East) and at that moment someone else shot Asher three times in the back. Not Luke, but a mysterious someone else.

Now they were on the main street at the time but it was dark. Whoever shot the Kid would have been down the street
(South of Asher).

On the map, this is outside of #20 (Lawrence Saloon).

You are in the same time zone and sync'd up now. Feel free to back post the planning but please make sure I know your plan. Ash will take a half hour to work around to normal body control and you can be in atmo in less than two hours. Waves are possible and even radio with a EASY boast.

Getting close to the end here and I am already to set up the next adventure.

Subject: You killed Asher! You bastards!


Regina, Frisco, Day Seven, 10:35 pm Planet Time

Folks, stay back, its safer there! Lukes handled this. Asher called out moving forward a step in hopes to make Luke see reason but the lawman had his gun clearing leather. Ash would have to do something quick or else ...

BLAM BLAM BLAM

Asher pitched forward when the first shot hit him and tried to draw and turn but then the second and third bullet ripped though his body and his legs gave out under him. He tried to stop himself, but his mind seem to lose its ability to command his body and he fell onto the ground.

Someone shot me! In the back!

Darkness fills the young man's eyes. He can hear screaming and the sound of more gun fire. Dimly he sees John Blake gunned down before he loses grip on his consciousness and the darkness takes him.

Rocinante, Day Nine 10 pm Ship Time/Planet Time Sync

Close enough to the planet for a long range scan but not so much to ping the spaceport satellites, Sam let everyone know that they were within planet-side in an hour or two. It took a lot of fuel, they'd need to fuel up again to go anywhere soon, but they were with atmo in a couple of hours.

No wave from the planet in a long time too. Where was Asher and why wasn't he keeping his promise to keep in touch. Everyone who knew the kid was worried, especially Ma.

The blockade was gone. Not a warship in the black around Regina, just the usual port authority pingers and beepers do their orbit dance of monotony. Bridget was a woman of her word apparently.

So now what?

Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 9;30 pm Planet Time

Asher awoke and tried to move his arms. There were tubes in his arm and his vision was blurred. Somewhere, so device or machine was making a rhythmic beep noise over and over again.

"Whoa there son. I spent a long time putting you back together, don't go messing with my work yet." a voice said in a matter of fact tone. It was familiar but his groggy mind couldn't pull a name out of the mush that was his mind. Ash tries to reach for his guns.

"They ain't there son and you don't want to shot me." the voice said, "But all your effects are safe. Most people around here don't mess with the doc if they know what's good for them. You were shot three times in the back, by someone who was pretty good at grouping his shots but not good enough to make saving you impossible. Now you have been out a spell so don't be putting on the pants too fast now. Your time will come and I think your friends will be here soon. You gonna need some friends son."

Asher thought back. Doc? Doc McGuire? He was the man who patched up Sam after the bank job. He was in the Doctor's operating room. Judging by the bandages on his chest, he owed the good Doc his life.

Subject: Highway to hell


Brutal took off with gun in hand running as fast as his legs would take him. McGuiness drew his scope across to where the guard was hiding behind the guardhouse. This was a wooden structure, not built with any thought of defence or lasting long. So the sniper fired once at where he thought the guard would be and then again lower and to his left, which was where he'd figure the guard would duck down. Brutal turned the corner around the guardhouse and opened up without hesitation, knowing the Nazi might be ready for him, The guard was waiting but the cover fire had forced him down and the mud slowed him down. Brutal made sure it was the last mistake the German would make.

The prone guard tried to shift himself backward for more cover, firing twice but hitting nothing but the already very damaged radiator of the car. Luke and Doc aimed and fired back. The Nazi cried out once and twitched violently and then moved no more as blood pooled around his body.

Brutal came around the house again and quickly checked inside to see if anyone was lurking inside - no one. A small single room with a small wood burning stove, a table, a log book and some radio equipment which took the worse of McGuiness' shots. The roar of the waterfalls was the only sound left to hear in this remote place.

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.
