First off, my thanks to Olan for giving life to my work. I really do the parodies as a bit of fluff writing but it is still great to hear them done.

I do take requests if anyone is interested. I will be adding a threead to the creative forum with some of my works that are not not the site already.

With the new set up on the site, I wonder if people even know we have poems, songs and stories posted. it used to be front and centred but now it is lost in a menu bar.

Only one post so far so I think this weekend will be a wash for posting to the game. I know Blammm is occupied and Lance is busy until after the weekend. Cathy is crazy with work and child. Tann has school, and so on.

Wonder any of us manage to post actually!!!!

We also will need to look at how to get YeOlde's character into the game. With a crew as twitchy as this one, we need a connection of sorts. Vanadia has suggested he could be a friend of her family.

Imagine if the Doctor handed you a bill as well. Or the band sought out an advocate to bound you by law to pay for their destroyed instruments, and forcing you to pay their legal bills.

Hey, wait a minute.... That last one was a good idea! Let me just scribble that one in...

The hydrogen is way high. You might be better off running on to the next planet to fill up. You'll be close to empty but the cost will be much lower.

Subject: Bills bills bills


Rocinante is at half tank on fuel. To fill up here will cost you 1000 credits as the hydrogen is part of the elements restricted by the embargo, so gas is steep.

You are behind on two regular (quarterly) maintenances on the ship. That will cost you 960 credits if you wish to catch up here - but that will take at least two days. To do what must be done only - cut it in half. Or you keep flying on love and prayer.

The mule needs fixing, which will run you around 20-30 credits.

Port fees will be 50 credits total, and that includes a septic flush, fresh water top up and the likes. If you like to scrub and disinfect the tanks first (which you haven't done in 6 months and it is suppose to be monthly) that will be another 50 credits and a day.

So you got paid 1000 credits, and the banker gave you another 500. To do the whole shebang will cost you 2085 credits. This is why you chose the glorious life of a tramp freighter? The profits!

Of course, with a Bounty hunter parked next to your ship, you can't really take off fast without arousing suspicions that perhaps you are harbouring fugitives. Best to not be hasty....

Subject: Frisco's Bounty Hunter Class Reunion


The Quick and the Drunk, At the Saloon

Asher worked his way towards the blonde woman at the bar. She was a rough and tumble type, but definitely a good-looking lady. As he moved closer, she moved her hands to her guns quickly.

“I have never… er… had a dream come true before, until… ah... I… um…” He stammers out. She turns to look at him, first with cold grey eyes that look to kill him as soon as stare at him. But the eyes soften slightly, perhaps realizing that Asher means no harm. At one point in her life, she was a mighty fine lady to behold, but now she looks tired and scared.

“I like your guns.” He blurted out.

Her brows knit quizzically and she looks down her blouse and back to Asher, her eyes going cold again.

“You want some pie?” Asher says, holding out the apple pie before him as a peace offering and smiling as best he could.

She looks at the pie and then back to her drink. Her shoulders begin to convulse and then her body shakes ever so much. Then the deep throaty laughter escapes from her lips. “You know Kid that the most unip…unit…weird line I’ve ever had thrown my way. I’d love a piece o’ pie. Can’t ‘member when I last ate somethin’ that wasn’t out of a tube.” She motions to the chair beside her and picks up her glass in a toast to Asher, “Here’s lookin’ at you kid. Got a name?” She asks and tosses down the contents of her glass smoothly, then looks to Asher to do the same. (Note: I am going to work on the assumption that Asher will try to keep up with her. His complications are overconfidence as well as lightweight)

(assume Asher gives his name)

After Asher downs his drink, she picks up her bottle and fills both their glasses three quarters full. She holds her glass up and downs the contents once more, waiting on Asher before filling the glasses again. “If you be lookin’ for a good time Ash, you best try Miss. Happy Pie over there. I’m damaged goods, and it ain’t good luck to be with me.” She drawls as she pulls out a butterfly style knife from her side sheath, flips it open one-handed wit ha flourish and cuts into the pie, slicing two large pieces. She takes hers and eats it down in a rapid succession of four bites. “Mmmm. Help yourself Ash. Drink or pie, and not my guns.’ She laughs again.

(assuming some probing about luck and good times)

She downs her drink again and but doesn’t look to Asher this time. “I killed a man, not long ago. Man who killed my father. These were his.” She says patting the guns on her side. Unfortnut…Unforhum…Bad luck has it that he had a number of friends and they be pissed. Hunting me now. So I keep movin’. You on a ship? Heading out soon? I got some cash, if youse and youse Captain be taking passengers?”

(assume some sort of “possibly” answer)

“Let me know, I’ll be her’, and my guns.” She says sadly this time. She fills her glass and Asher’s again quite full, draining the bottle, “Thanks for the pie Ash. No one done a speck of kindness to me in awhile. You bette’ ‘un along, you’ Captain wants ya.”

“C’mon, Asher,” Wyatt mumbled. “Time t’ git.”

“Willow, it’s time t’ return t’ the ship,” Wyatt called from the bar as he began to stroll towards the door. Then, as an afterthought. “There’s a wave came through for ya earlier as well. Thought you’d like t’ know.”

Heading for Rocinante, 6:30 pm

OOC- I’m not going to reprint what has been written. Taking it from Wyatt parting company from Asher and Willow

Willow and Asher walked towards the ship along the main road. It wasn’t long before Willow noticed that her companion was having a bit of trouble walking a straight line. In fact, as Asher got closer to the ship, he weaved back and forth more and his mood seemed to grow more jovial. Willow’s arm held in respectful attendance become more of a support for the obviously drunk man.

(I’ll let you two work on the conversation)

As Willow and Asher come over the crest, they see Rocinante waiting where it was before. The other Firefly transport is long gone and in its place is another transport, a dragonfly class, stands in its place. The emblem on its hull reads “Defiant” and has a back-drop of a man’s fist with one finger raised upwards. On the other side of Rocinante, closest to the town is a Midge class with no emblem or name. A three-max person runabout that is often favoured by bounty hunters with cargo space converted to holding cells. In between your ship and the Midge stands a man in red and gold body armour, the NEWTECH logo clear embossed on the chest-plate. His helmet is down revealing a man with long wild brown hair circling a central bald spot and a full moustache and beard. He doesn’t have a weapon strapped on, either side or back. He is smoking a cigar and staring towards town. When he sees you, he starts to walk towards you with a purposeful stride.

“Excuse me? Wonder if you might help me?” He asks pleasantly enough as he approaches. “There might be a cash reward for you if you can.”

(Assuming some sort of response. He ain’t taking no for an answer)

He hands you a piece of printed paper. On the page is an alliance notice of a reward offering for two fugitives – a brother and sister named Simon and River Tam. According to the bulletin, they are wanted for question in the killing of a Marshall and for treason against the Alliance. The reward portion of the bulletin has been conveniently torn off. “Have you seen these two? They were last seen in a Firefly transport? Love to chat with the crew of that ship there, but it is closed up tight.”

(Your reaction – obvious that you know nothing about them. The BH is more interested in your reaction than your words)

“Much obliged.” He says taking back his notice. ‘Guess I will go look around town then. Good Evening Miss, Sir.”

Wyatt at the Doctors, 6:30 -8:00 pm

(Again, not going to reprint what has been written)

Wyatt reaches the Doctor’s house after circling around a few time to make sure he’s not followed. When he is satisfied that he isn’t, he makes his way to the house, still checking the parameter and the area to make sure no one has the drop on him. Once he feels all is clear, he enters the shed where Wolf is working on the mule.

“How’s it comin’?” Wyatt crouched so the big man could see his face.

(Wolf can answer here are the details - The mule brake line is dead. Wolf managed to get the air horn to work with the brake but it won't last long. Air filled vs liquid hydraulics. As well, the brass instruments have damaged the thruster's flow value on both the sides and there is scrap metal in the compressor manifold which will have to be replaced. They are working now, but they will break soon and then you will lose speed control.

The good news is that Fenris knows he can get all these parts from machines that Bailey ain't using anymore, so he won't charge you much. About 20-35 credits tops, may even get some free.)

All right, well, finish up as quick as ya can.” Pausing, Wyatt glanced about the orange-illuminated interior of the shed. “Anything eventful happen while we was out?”

(assuming an answer of no, not much happening)

Wyatt goes to the back door of the house and finds it is not locked. He goes in and has a look around. Sam is awake but strapped to the knitter machine. The teller is gone from the room. There is a bottle of really good whiskey on the side table beside a covered tray.

(see post by Robert)

Wyatt leaves the doctor’s place and locks the door as he leaves. Old habits make him check the area again and watch his back all the way back to the ship, but he doesn’t see anyone following him. As he reaches the ship, he sees the Dragonfly and notes the emblem. He also sees the Midge and feels a whole new sense of danger. The last thing he wanted to see was a Bounty Hunter parked next to his boat.

Inside the Rocinante 6:45 – 8:00 pm

Willow let Asher fill Trish in on the journey so far, since he was in a talkative mood despite the giggling and the falling out of his chair frequently. She had made sure that Trish heard the important things from her, and then left Ma to take care of her drunken “son”

She activated the cortex console, making sure to activate the black box inhibitor to make sure no one would listen in. First Willow checked the message.

(The message is from your aunt, so you will write it better than I. It basically says that there was an incident in the last port of call you made in Beaumonde. Apparently, some Senator’s kid lost a kitten. He is very fond of his daughter and is offering a reward of 1000 credits for its return. The whole thing sounds fishy to your aunt. The cat better be pooping gold turds shaped like Buddha himself if he’s offering that much. There is more to the story but no one is talking)

Next, Willow logs in through the Companion portal and starts her research into the Ludlows. The father Horatio is an immediate hit – with a black mark on his name for beating a Companion for refusing to “service” his command crew. History of violence, and abuse of power has kept the Commandant from being a General, but results on the battlefield prevent him from being pushed further down the ranks. His current whereabouts is considered classified.

The second eldest brother, Edward is a commander in the Core Worlds Defence Corp. He is listed as a client in good standing, with several good commendations from Companions. He is currently stationed on Ariel.

Ernest and Ethan have no record of using a Companion or seeking their services. Further digging reveals a long history between the two of petty crime. Ernest, in the last few years has had several warrants issued for murder while Ethan seemed to slow down. The father pulled some strings the first few times it happened. Even tried to get them to join the military, but they drifted off, seemingly to get as far away from their dad as possible.

One thing is sure; Ernest was not a bounty hunter, and never had been. His history is of petty theft and murder of those in his way. Had a thing for jackets, and killing people whose jackets he coveted. He was a known acquaintance of one Grant Mustard – who was known for “tinkering” with weapons, armour and machines to make them better.

At 8:00 pm, the Captain returns to the ship to find Ma feeding Asher coffee and making him eat. Although more lucid, the Captain can tell when someone been drinking from a mile away – but Asher has started preparing the ship for cargo transfer and checking munitions stores.

(You decide how to spend the last hour and I will back post if necessary)

Night Falls on Rocinante, 9:00 pm

There is a heavy bang on the cargo door. Outside, JW and Bailey wait with a couple of old wheeled mules and attached grav-carts. Also waiting next to JW is John Blake, the short, round banker you met earlier in the day.

(assuming you open the doors)

The miners get to work without much ado, hauling the containers of Ice off the ship and onto the grav-carts. From there they take it to the mag-train depot where it is unloaded carefully out of the containers and into specially designed cargo holders, all with a minimum of lighting. As they do so, Mr. Blake approaches Captain Wyatt. “Excuse me Captain. You did me quite a service today, quite a service indeed. If it hadn’t been for you and your men, I shudder to think of where I would be now.” He offers you a small wooden box. When you look inside there is money, in neat bills to a tune of 500 credits, “I wanted to say thank you and offer you a small token of my appreciation.”

Although there are enough miners, the work goes on through the night and it is 11:00 pm by the time everyone finished unloading. They bring the containers back to the space port and load them into a storage room. Bailey gives you 40 credits for the deposit on the containers.

“We are heading back to the Lawrence. Anyone like to join us?” JW asks.

Night Falls at the Doctor’s Place 9:00 pm

Fenris finishes pulling the scrap out of the small engine parts when he realizes it is getting dark. He needs to switch the lights on in order to continue working. He is also thinking that he is mightily hungry as well and should see if the doc has some grub. He swats at an insect that bites him on the neck while he is cleaning up his hands before heading to the house. No point greasing up the doctor’s doors and furniture. As Wolf reaches for the lights he yawns. Then he yawns again as he staggers over to the mule. Must be more tired than I … he thinks as he falls to the ground unconscious.

Inside the operating room, the knitter cracks open and the mechanical feminine voice declared the process to be complete. Sam gets up fast and fingers his chest and ribs – everything is looking good, if a bit tender. He heads directly to the side table and pours himself a drink, while lifting the lid on the tray. It looks like beef… but at this point, protein paste would be a delicacy to Sam. He downs the meal quickly while drinking from the bottle. “Gorram Alliance,” he grumbled, checking his Avenger before snaking another swig from the bottle, “Gorram Ludlows!”

“I hope you aren’t adding me to your gorram list.” A voice comes out of the dark. Sam has his avenger up faster than a man can twitch, looking around. Out of a darkened corner of the room, Brigit comes out slowly with her hands up in the air. She comes over to you slowly, discarding clothing as she gets closer. “I told you I wanted you more than I ever wanted a man before.” She says playfully as she reaches Sam and closes her mouth upon his in a passionate kiss. “The doc’s asleep as he is want to be by this time at night and Wolf is very, very occupied with his mule right now. You are feeling better I hope.”

(Assuming that San doesn’t die of shock, I believe we have trains entering tunnels, rocket ships blasting off, oil rigs pumping away, fireworks…..)

YeOlde has submitted to me a character who is a tech/computer/cortex guru as a possible addition to the crew. Nothing has been finalized but I wanted to hear for the existing crew how you felt about another team mate.

What I have in mind is to tweak Tann's character a bit to allow him to be more of a mechanic/fighter by moving the tech points he has used. I feel that we stretched Wolf too thin by trying to make him a jack of all trade. This would alloow Fenris to be a good warrior and a good mechanic, not average in everything.

Thoughts? Please be honest. YeOlde has wanted to join this campaign for awhile and I can accomodate another character.

You literally went the wrong direction. You posted that you were going to head to the ship, check the cortex for jobs etc etc. Then you posted that you were going to check on Sam and Wolf. Well I had the post ready for you to go back to the ship, but if you ain't going back then I can't do all the things I wanted to and they wouldn't be fair to do to Willow. Furthermore, the stuff I was gonna do to Sam and Wolf, I can't do if you are there watching. So you pickled me good.

So I will rethink the storyline and see if I can't post by Wednesday. Sam is awake now so he can respond to Wyatt's post.

You gave me a lot to work with, and blew my plans completely out of the water. Not that was a bad thing, i had just expected you to do one thing and you decided on another. It is good to keep me on my toes but I will have to delay posting a bit.

Finances - I will look into that this week. The mule will need some major fixing, you need fuel, and you are pass due on at least two regular maintenances of Rocinante(Kora warned you when you left Beaumonde, which was a spell ago). then there is the usual food, port fees, septic flush, freah water, power hookup, etc etc etc. But I will calculate all that for you.

Subject: Second part and you are off


“How much do any of you know about the Elven blood wars?”

Matthias stood up and gave his rendition of the historic war, followed by Dapple’s short but decisively different version of the story.

“So,” Char said into the silence Matthias had left behind. “Ya tinks we be facin’ sum’tin’ demonic an’ undead dis time?”

Dapple replied, “Besides, Dwan, disappearing cattle? Missing villagers? Undead warriors? Sounds like you need Kilgim and a whole church full of his bretheren to go bless the place. Maybe some “mages of vast power” to blast those that aren’t undead, but this isn’t the sort of thing you need me for. Put me back in jail if you want to, I’ll just let myself out later.”

“Aye, tho’ da lad’s as bitin’ as swamp ‘squitos, ‘e makes a poin’ Dwan,” Char said through a half smile. “Dare ain’ nuttin’ I gots ‘gains’ strong arms an’ goo’ steal—fac’ I ‘fere it t’ all da mystica’ hooba-jooba, bu’ undead be proven t’ be da domain o’ those touch by da gods. So, we gonna git some o’ da various church’s ‘elp, er we jus’ da scoutin’ party?”

Adrian chimed in, "The invasion of the elves, dragons and shadows is what catalyzed the formation of the Empire. Of course how much of that we can trust is still up in the air. I'll be happy to relate more of the 'official' history at a later time. As to now, I can promise that behind every undead is something with a squishy part that can be stabbed by non-magical hands. The mystical are actually not all that mystical, often times a good whetstone is just as effective as a weeks worth of prayer. Regardless, I am eager to set out once more under your jurisdiction. Archmages always hoard the best goodies and trinkets."

Dwan opened his mouth to answer when suddenly Maximus came crashing to the floor with a rather surprised and very unheroic yelp. All eyes turned to look at the gladiator and he arose from his slumber shaken and dusty from his fall. The chair upon which he’d been sitting appears to have crumbled completely into dust – actually pink iridescent dust that seems to cling to Maximus’s armour and clothing like sparkly glue. As much as he tries to brush it off, it just seems top spread further over his armour.

Matthias’ bird suddenly squawks loudly, “Pretty in Pink! Caw! Caw! Caw! Pretty in Pink!”

“Do you might if we continue Maximus?” Dwan asks while barely holding back laughter. The Dwarf clears his throat, “This is why I never trust wooden chairs. Give me a stone bench any day. Now, back to the business at hand. I want you to go as the scouting party to be sure. But I don’t believe for a minute that this is what it appears to be – so I’m sending you people. I think that someone or something is using the Zephur legend as a front to cover something else. You have been my best weapon against unknown strangeness and when a hammer works, you don’t change it for a pair of tongs. As to you Dapple Moon, you be going for the same reason you went on the last two missions – because some people tell me you are indispensable as a team member and apparently good at those dark arts that we need not list here. No one is forcing you to go though and I have no need for you in prison. I’m sure that Fast Toes could supply me with another one better than you, and let the hobbit decide your fate.”

“The reason I bring up the blood wars, despite some inventive histories, is the gates.” Gwanele continued, “Matthias is correct in the knowledge that the gates were the key to the demons that attacked this realm. Instead of providing instantaneous transport to another part of this world, they opened up rifts in the dimension itself. The gems you found at the tower were cut in a particular way that, when I researched it, was used as the focus for the elven gates. Now no one alive knows how to make one or even activate it if they did. It is believe that you couldn’t without the old magic of the elves anyway. But, you have gems cut for gates, a commander with a demon’s arm, demon’s possessing, and a powerful old magic artifact all in one place over a short time – all linked to the empire. It makes me nervous.”

Dwan added, “Now this probably has nothing to do with this mission, but you keep surprising me with your ability to find trouble. So I wanted you to know about this, just in case.”

Gwanele nodded, “One more thing. The being that held Alloryn called herself the Green Goddess and from what we can tell of your reports, was weak in darkness and powerful in the sun. I could find no reference to a green goddess or even a demon of that nature.”

(Assuming some conversation)

“It will be a five day journey to the town of Hevlorn. Supplies will be made available as well as funds out of the promised payment. Each of you will receive a pair of healing potions and holy water will be available to any who feel the need. Any questions?”

I have been tending to a sick babe (double ear infections) so I haven't been a posting machine either. Hopefully Cathy and I will manage some time this weekend.

For NPCing Asher, I would prefer a PC take the reins, not me.

Volunteers?

Blammm - you are not delaying this game. I have been taking care of my son who developed an infection in both ears and throat on Saturday pass. Cathy has been travelling since Sunday so I have been struggling with sick son, work and a lack of sleep - hence no post from me.

As I have a newborn, a daughter on the edge of puberty and a wife who travels for work, I do fully understand real life issues. That is why this game is so leisurely.

I would sooner cut off my arm than lose Asher. I am more than willing to NPC him for awhile until you can get back on your feet. I would also remind you that your post doesn't have to be award winning every time. A couple of paragraphs of intentions and thoughts are enough for now.

If you do choose to drop out, it will sadden me but I will understand as I go through RL problems all the time. However, this game and cwwllo keep me sane, so I stick to them.
