Subject: Moving ahead


(You can still post to the going on before. I just want to move us ahead so we don't stagnant.I will post for Kora and Willow at the market when I find out how much they have to spend)

Across the street and down an alley, The Idoru was a gambling establishment, located under the building that housed the HVAC of the spacedock. It was a rough and tumble type of place that drew a crowd from those who preferred a drink without rubbing elbows with authorities or alliance militia.

Down a iron stairwell to a gun check (run by an attractive young lady whose choice in outfits was determined by how much cleavage she could show) where no one checked their guns, but a man could get other aspects of his manliness checked. Beyond that was a bar in the back, many tables set up for those who like to drink, and then to the right, the card tables were set up.

Griffith wasn’t hard to spot, wearing his beat up brown wide-brimmed hat and long grey and white hair out the back (Keith Carradine as Bill Hickok in Deadwood). He was sitting at the poker table, with a surprisingly large stack of chips before him. As you approach he lays down a full house Aces over 8’s. The other players toss their cards down in disgust as the man happily pulls the pile to him to sort into his own. Then he looks up and sees you. His eyes were gleeful for a moment, then his face drops, as he looks to his stack, back to you, back to the stack, and then back to you. Then the smile returns to his face.

“Wyatt Sung! You gao yang jong duh goo yang!” he says with a laugh, “It is good to see you! My luck is turning.” He motions to the dealer to hold his winning and gets up, extending his hand to shake yours. “What brings you to Beaumonde my friend?”

“C’mon, boys,” Wyatt said in a quiet voice while the dockworker chuckled his commentary. “Time t’ see if’n ol’ Griff’s been sharin’ his luck, er if’n he’s sharin’ ours.”

“Captain San!” Willow calls to Wyatt from the Cargo bay doors, “Before you boys go off and leave us ladies unescorted and unattended, there is one small matter.”

Willow walks across the docking bay to stand close to Wyatt. As she does, every man within sight of her stops to watch, and one of the soldiers almost drops his motion scanner as he walks directly into a shipping crate. To say Willow was unaware of this attention would be unfair, to say she didn’t enjoy it would be out and out lying.

“Captain Sahib, Trish has given me a grocery list longer than my arm, and wants to know if we could get more than half of what we need, or if it is protein paste for here on.” Willow looks at the list in her hand in mock dismay, “Personally I might die if I can’t have Trish’s fresh Bao, but we must make do. Not all of us are hearty adventuring folk.” She stopped to shift her outfit back into perfect positioning, beaming a playful smile at Asher as he watched. “Would you mind floating some money my way dear, so I might go with Kora to pick up provisions?” She asked politely while her eyelashes fluttered at a passing soldier.

Pardon the editing, but Willow flirts with everyone BUT the captain

Subject: On the road again


The rain stops sometime over the course of the evening while it is still dark. You mange to set up tents and use the magical shelter in make yourselves somewhat comfortable for the night, at least so you can get some sleep in shifts. (You can back post anything you wish on the evening, but I want to get moving forward)

Arien’s dreams are less vivid this night and he manages to slumber without awaking. All he can remember is something about taking off a uniform and buckles that won’t unsnap.

Morning comes and you are met with the sun again, installing a certain amount of cheer in all of you. Another day of this, even to hearty adventurers, would have been more than most could bear.

It does not take long before you can go no further with the horses, no more than a hour of travel until the cliffs become scalable by hand, but not by hoofs. Char is able to find a cave without Bears, or any other residents, where you can hide the horses, and set out enough food for them for a few days.

The sun becomes quite warm as you make your way through the mountains. Char scouts far ahead to find the easiest trails or paths, but some routes are more rugged than others. Arien and Talas are forced to remove their armour in order to safely attain their destination.

It is mid-afternoon when you reach an outcropping of rocks on top of cliffs edge. There, in the gorge below is the Keep on the Borderlands. It is almost exactly as the illusion of Archmage Gwanele had shown it. You are still a fair distance way from the building, at least 100 feet straight down and another 400 away. The walls are old and crumbling, and the windows of the tower at the top are completely boarded up tight. The vegetation of the valley has growth up and over the walls in places, and the forest creeps close to the Keep itself. You can see no foot patrols in view but you are still far enough away to be unsure.

This is the perfect place to set up your camp, as it gives you a view of your quarry but hides you from any who might look this way. You have a few hours of daylight left before night comes – enough time to do some scouting and recon on the place before coming up with a plan for attack.

Magma thought quickly about this new foe. It had been dormant inside the creature, that much was obvious as the creature certainly never had it soul sucked out of it. In fact, until it was exposed to light and the air by Aftik, it had remained dormant. It had created a shield of force around it to protect itself now and Magma sorely wished he had a way to cancel magic.

“The light of day give life to this thing, perhaps we need to cloak it in darkness!” Magma calls out to the magic wielders of the party. Then he lets his mind merge with the new battleaxe he has picked up – hoping beyond hope that magic will know how to defeat magic.

Subject: A quick post


The docks are crowded with the usual assortment of equipment, freight containers and dockworkers. Steam vents from numerous sources and the wafting smell of waste tank antiseptic fills the air.

Kora and Asher look over the Rocinante with experienced eyes. Nothing major was wrong or fallen off, but there were things here and there that showed signs of wear. The coaxial on the main buffer panel was fraying, the secondary compressor coils was overheated, the waste influx gasket was barely holding together and the list went on and on. This was all part and parcel of the flying a ship package, the regular maintenance. However, with the job going south and Wyatt needing to refuel, perhaps a bit of duct tape medicine would be needed this time around. Hopefully the lean time wouldn’t last long.

Wyatt bashed hard on the hull of Royale as Dash looks on. The senior dockworker, an older gentleman in grey overall and a red vest denoting rank, came over with a smile, “No one is in there Captain! She’s locked up tighter than Tai-kong suo-yo duh shing-chiou sai-jin wuh duh pee-goo.

(Assuming some question as to where Griffith is and the nature of the ship)

“Captain Griffith is over at the Idoru. He wasn’t too pleased about some of his crew abandoning him after this incident. Plum bad luck though. Royale sucked a cry-baby into its starboard engine. Probably would have just chewed it up and spit it out except whoever rigged the crybaby, put a surprise inside. Must have been a fair amount of explosives to do the damage it did. Pilot must have been some TZOO-foo to get it down on the ground safely.”

As the chief tells the tale, a patrol of 6 alliance soldiers moves though the docking area where you are talking. They are armed, but guns are in holsters or shouldered and they seem to be searching for something. Their attention is focus on the ground, and they are focusing on areas around freight bins and boxes. Two of the soldiers have motion detecting scanners that they stare at intently into as they search. They move a few boxes around, moving back and forth in a sweeping pattern.

The Chief shakes his head as they pass, and calls out, “You sure I can’t help you find something sir?”

The Sergeant looks over to him and shakes his head, “No thanks Citizen.”

“You seem to be looking for something small.” The chief laughs and shoots a look to you.”

“Does it?” the Sarge laughs as well, “I wouldn’t be asking too many questions about our small matter then Chief, Dong ma?”. He replies in a friendly tone but one that carries a warning.

The chief put his hands up in mock surrender “Wuo DWAY-nee BOO-woon, boo-JEN, then. Just trying to help.”

The Sarge grins and nods as the patrol moves on to the next section of the dock.

***

Inside Willow’s quarters, she hears someone knock lightly at her door and the descend the steps. She turns to see Trish is there, dress in her usual draping cloak and voluminous hood. The older woman nods to Willow as she turns, offering a note between her fingers.

GM's note - I have more to add but I wanted to get something up for everyone.

For the record. Rangers have animal empathy - but they do not have the ability to talk to or charm wild animals.

Char could approach the Bear and if it awoke, then Char could attempt to "calm" it (save vs Rods at -2, yes a save vs, rods ... I didn't write the rules). But he can not go and aske the Bear for permission to bunk with him in the ajoining room, oh ... and by the way, don't eat our horses.

As to why Wynter would miss a bear? Well you wouldn't know why but the dead aren't always clear on what is real and what is not. A dead spirit might not notice a bear, or a pit trap, or the poison needle, etc etc etc.

Subject: Gorram it! We're rutting humped


Maybe I am not explaining myself well.

Companions guild does not control the sex trade. There are still escorts, whores, hookers and whatever degree downwards you want to add. Companions do cater to the Geisha concept, but they are in the sex trade whether they want to admit it or not.

So ... a companion trained dropout could have clients and be an escort/hooker. However if she called herself a companion, then the guild would take action.

A companion that drops the "guise" and becomes a whore is blacklisted (Heart of Gold Episode of Firefly).

So if you aren't paying dues and serving tea before or after the deed, you are a whore. If you are serving tea, doing the deed but don't have the degree (and claim to) - then you are in a world of hurt.

Think of it as a trademark violation. Nike took over the playboy mansion.

Subject: No big really


To be a companion takes years of physical discipline, education, meditation, and training. It is very intense, and many do not make it to the end of training.

The art of seduction and the like only comes after training, and then there is a final test.

Willow didn't get to the final test but she did complete her education and was partially through the "core training" when she dropped out. So she would have had clients, although not many.

Dropping out has no ramifications really, in fact few do make it to the end. To be a companion takes a certain mindframe that only some can achieve. Unless the person tries to set up shop as a whore, or pass themselves as a companion, then there would be problems. In the former, the person is blacklisted, in the latter, the guild will take drastic steps.

Buy my brother a house so he would never have to live in a basement apartment again. Fly him off to some remote place to work with doctors and trainers in order to deal with his weight problem.

Then ... Hold a huge RDI festival and pay to fly everyone there and back.
