Just need some fine tuning to get started. Hopefully by end of day or Tomorrow.

Note for new Players (Tann, Eol and Bob)
Dapple, although female and half-elven goes to great length to hide both features. To your eyes, until you are told otherwise, Dapple is a human boy - hard to determine what age, but not quite a man. I trust you can all manage to play this secret well.

Note to previous players (Olan, Raven, Bromern and Vanadia)
Your players know Dapple's secret by now but understand her wishes to hide it. Since you are all honourable good characters, I am assuming this is no problem.

Subject: Silver Screen Moment I - Fate plays a hand


Alloryn Jessamin Thedell didn’t have a problem with lying to people. In fact, she was schooled quite adequately by her mother in the arts of fabrication and persuasion – as all good Cerjorn women should be, she would add. But there was something about lying to her brother that always felt wrong to her. Not that he was hard to fool, quite the contrary really; Arien would proclaim the sky was green if Alloryn told him so. Yet, any time she was forced to be less than honest with him, she felt a tightness in her stomach, a guilty pain deep inside, as if she had beaten a puppy or taken candy from a school child.

There was nothing to be done about it this time though. Guileless as Arien was, he never have let her taken this journey. Oh yes, Brother? I am off to traipse through the forest in search of this old fort and a man who has a large scaly green left, because I keep seeing them in my dreams. Be a dear and don’t wait up? No that wouldn’t have flown over well. Arien would be beside her now waving that sword of his in the air and probably setting have the forest on fire. Not the approach that was needed here.

The Mage pauses near some trees. She had put an invisibility spell upon herself before and had to remind herself that although unseen, she could still be heard if she became out of breath, and some animals would smell her sweat as well. Take your time Alloryn! You know he is there. No doubt it was not wise for her to be here, alone and seeking someone she knew to be dangerous, but she couldn’t shake to feeling, the urge to come here. It drove though her like a spike being driven into her temples. Even taking the road away didn’t help, within days the urge became overwhelming and she abandoned the merchants she swore to protect to come south again. They had many guards, I am sure they won’t mind one less and frankly Arkin was more interested in my physique than my magic.

*crack*

Alloryn froze and forced herself to breath regularly. Someone had stepped on a branch near her. She was sure of it. Silently, she drew black swan from her pinned up hair, the thin long dagger gave her comfort in the stillness. She waited but nothing seemed to come from the trees or bushes. An eternity passed in the minute she awaited there, until the bushed moved near her. The soldiers emerged from the trees to the forest, both moving close to the ground, scanning it with intense focus. Their uniforms gave them away as much as their language – Special Forces imperial soldier – Greens.

“Deke, she passed through here recently. We are close.”

The other came right close to Alloryn, not realizing she was there. He examined the ground at her feet as she gave a silent prayer to Wee Jas to save her. “Damn! They stop right here.” He stood up and looked around staring through Alloryn, “Think she got wind of us?”

“Maybe, Deke. I stumbled back there. Might have heard.”

“This way then,” Deke pointed with his arm extended. Alloryn moved herself back as much as she could and thanked all the gods she wasn’t voluptuously endowed. The man’s finger was dangerous close to her. They have been tracking me? How?

“Hold on a second.” Deke said looking down at Alloryn’s feet. “Just hold s …”

Alloryn knew she had been found out. The dirt around her shoes had shifted as she avoided the intended grope. With a strength of will beyond what she though she could muster, she drove the Black Swan upwards and into Deke’s neck He staggered back as her spell dropped, causing her to appear in front of him as he fell to the ground.

“Deke!” the other man shouted. Alloryn pushed the soon to be dead man into the other man. He grabbed her by the hand but the blood on it caused her to slide out of the grip. Black Swan was knocked from her grip and into the bushes.

No time to retrieve the family Heirloom, She ran as fast as he could, in the only direct she had open - south. She wished that she hadn’t lied to Arien and would have done anything right now for him to appear. She started to gather the mystical energy of mana to her. Although running, there were some good spells she could use that required minimum incantation. She had always been a fast caster so they didn’t have her yet.

A sharp pain in her shoulder, caused her to reach up and grab it. A small crossbow bolt had grazed her across the flesh and caught in her sleeve. not a serious wound. I’m fine The was a sharp turn ahead, she ducked behind it and chanted as fast as she could. Just as the soldier came around the corner, she fired off a series of brilliant white missiles from her fingertips. They caught him hard in the chest, but he didn’t stop. He was upon her in an instant, grabbing at her hands. Another soldier arrived and grabbed her legs, then more were all around. She was tied and gagged without mercy. The soldier she had elude before slapped her hard, a ring on his finger drawing blood across her face. The other soldiers stepped in his way to prevent further harm.

“The Bitch killed Deke!”

A soldier with command insignas in his sleeve stepped forward. “How did Deke let this slip of a girl get close enough to him?”

“Ummmm. She was invisible at the time.”

“No excuse! Pick her up gently and bring her to the outpost. I’m sure this is the one Dalmer has been waiting for, and I, for one, do not want to disappoint the captain!’ He said with a wither gaze at the soldier. “Order were unharmed, Seiner! You’ll face the captain for this. Mark my words.”

I think I mixed up my timeline with Bob. I had him talking to Avanti then going to the bridge, but thatwould put him on the bridge when Avanti took the COMM for the last time. Not a big deal and hardly worth revisiting but as I read over posts today I realized it was off.

I was planning on Bob hitting ten-forward in the evening (since he isn't invite to senior officer dinners yet). If anyone is going to be there at that time let me know and I'll try to write you into Bob's bar cruising and moving.

Stardate: 2366.10.21
USS Discovery, Bridge, 12:00 noon


Lt. N’doog hummed a bit to himself as he waited for the turbolift to reach its destination. The loss of Avanti was a definite bummer, but he was always keen to meet new people. He wondered what Commander Waldgrave would be like. Hope she’s cool. Wonder if she’s a babe?

The doors open and Bob crossed the floor of the Bridge to reach the engineer station. He greeted the people he knew as he passed, “Troydude! Looking good! Hey Shelly! I got a slice of a holo we need to board!” He smiled and passed the other crewmembers until he reached Z’var. “Z’var, I am here the relieve your feeties from standing duty.”

The Female Vulcan arched an eyebrow at the Catullan. “You are early, Lieutenant. My shift is not scheduled to end for another 26 minutes and 34 seconds.”

“Yeah, well I had to shive some cranial attention to Avanti, not too mention the old bye dude, and didn’t feel like taking the long way. Besides, this way you have time to do your chop chopie workout thingie.” Bob said waving his hands around in a mock karate poise.

Z’var nodded briefly, “That is very considerate of you Lieutenant.”

“Not a problem dude.”

"Perhaps you would like to learn some of the basics of martial arts?”

“No can do dude. I’m not into violence, cathartic or otherwise.”

“Very Well then. The station is yours. All systems are running within parameters.”

A-ok. Dude.” Bob called out as Z’var headed off to the turbo lift.

Bob linked his fingers together and stretched. “Okay Shelia. It’s me. How you doing today?”

=/= Welcome Lt. N’doog.=/= the computer intoned.

Bob’s hands stroked the console and then his actions seemed to become a blur. As always, he began to talk softly as he worked. ”Shelia my dear, Can I get some onesies and twosies please. Twosie the essential system and onesie the backups.”

=/= Running diagnostics=/=

“Who are you talking to?” The ensign beside him asked, while watching Bob’s hands with amazement.

“I’m talking to you dude. I’m Lt. Bob N’doog. Nice to make yours. Before I was chatting to Shelia. That’s my pet for the Discovery Computer. Only me though, I did that once and the captain got all whoa and I was like hey and he was like official this and that.”

The Ensign shook his head, “What did you say?”

“Don’t let it shake your noodle, bro. I talk to myself when I work. Just ignore me unless I’m facing you. Dig?”

“Pardon?”

Bob laughed, “It’s cool dude. It’s cool. Shelia? How's about we gleam the cube on that hot modular aft thruster?”

=/=Reducing stress to aft thruster. compensating with other thrust units =/=

Shelia gets me.

USS Discovery, Transporter Room One – 1820


Avanti left the turbolift to head for the transporter room. It was a strange thing for him to be wearing the command red, but it wasn’t a bad fit. The more he thought about his experience on the Discovery, the more he realized how much he had changed since coming abroad. Tier and him were now getting to be friends more than enemies. Then there was Sango. She turned down the Asst. Chief Engineer position and took on the role of Warp Core Specialist. A demotion to some but to her it meant she wasn’t in any direct line of command to Avanti. There relationship was starting to unfold now and Sango was leading him by the hand – dragging him if she had to, into a strange and wondrous new stage for Avanti.

He turned the corner and his musing wa broken by the sight of Kelsey and Noah awaiting to see him off. He smiled genuinely at them, not surprised by the show of affection.

“Well,” Kelsey said with a huge grin as he stood nearly toe to toe with the large alien, arms clasped in a friendly warrior’s grip. “It has certainly been an honor, my friend. I’m just glad you were here long enough to see my daughter—even if it was through a protective glass pane.”

“Thank you Commander. You have helped me more than you could know over the months together. I hope that we work together again someday. Your daughter is a wonderful gift and I am sure she will be growing like an eel before your eyes. May the winds guide your journey, may the water bring you bounty, and may life keep you in harmony.” He said formally.

“The Valmont is getting one helluvah trade. Two officers and a doctor for one you. If I were Noah, I’d have asked for at least double that.” Kelsey laughed and reached up to pat his friend on the shoulder. “I’d better not keep you. The Future awaits. Good luck, Ly Avanti.”

“Thank you sirs. It has been an honour.”

Kelsey stepped back as Noah took his place, clasping the Domtarian’s forearm. “I am proud to have served with you. Godspeed, Avanti.”

“Winds to your bow, Captain.”

Kelsey shared a sad, but somehow happy, look with Noah as Avanti took his place on the transporter pad just before the engineer gave the order to energize. A short time later the tech addressed Captain Blair, “Captain, I have a request from the Valmont- three to beam over.”
