I would love to move this forward this weekend. Aryn told me he would be unavailable over the next little while.

So shall I assume everyone is moving into the cave, weapons draw, spells ready and ready for action?

Hey everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is Olan's Birthday. Our Beloved Webmaster is celebrating the day of his birth and we should too.

Many happy returns old friend. I speak for all when i say we love you and appreciate the work you put into the inn so we have a place to hang out.

But don;t let me speak for you!!!! Speak up people! Wish Olan a Happy one and remind him why he is our number one Webmaster.

Subject: move ahead.

You really don't know until you try to climb but based on Maximus's description, you think the packed earth would require either claws or some skill to ascend. How long? A few rounds unless someone was lobbing javelins at you, in which case it may be a bit slower.

Fireballs brought the roof down on you before - what are the odds it would happen again?

Waiting on Olan. Aryn, and Eol to post. Unless they were planning to stand around and do nothing this round.

ss I said before, Mmv is busy with school and asked me to cover her actions which were say hi to friendly crew outside, avoid looking at hairy guy and then head to the spaceport tower.

Not sure how your actions would be different. You approached, said hi and introduced yourself. Jade came up behind you and did the same. She is very quiet in her movements.

Subject: Virgil's place

Day 1, Serenity View’s Spaceport, 6:15 PM PT

“Hi neighbours! Want some shine? Made it myself.”

“Thank you I think I will, ” Wolf answered but Jade shook her head with a pleasant smile.

“Chewie! I told you to put on some clothes!”

“Ahh Captain!” The hairy man replies, “Why? My body is a temple.”

“Only if you worship a bear god. Is Billie up?”

“No boss. Still sleeping it off.”

“Sleeping what off?” The captain looks down at the jug, “oh no Chewie. You didn’t.”

“She was armed Captain.” Chewie put his hands in the arm defensively.

“She is always armed. Oh ....bother.” The Captain puts his face into his palms.

“Hi I’m Fenris Apollo, mechanic on the Firefly, thought I’d come over and intro myself.” Holding his hand out to shake he waited for the Beowulf Captain’s hand and reaction.

“And I’m Jade.” The pilot said while trying hard to focus on only seeing the Captain.

“I am Justin. Justin Case. Yes you heard me right and what can I say, I have heard all the jokes. Y mother had a devilish sense of humour.” The Blond man shakes hands with both of you. “This wild man is Chu Shen, but he prefers to be called Chewie. He is my mechanic and this is my boat - Blue Angel absent from this social gathering is Billie Rudd who is ... indisposed.”

Chewie smiles and hands the jug over to Wolf. (Assuming you drink) It is actually a pleasant liquor, with a sweet taste that reminds Apollo of bananas. The mechanic has tasted a lot of bad homemade shine in his time but this was actually quite smooth. The captain takes the jugs back and takes a drink himself.

“well pleasure to me y’all.” Said Jade, “but I better head over to the tower and see about some things. I am sure we will see each other lately.”

“The pleasure is all ours Jade.” The Captain says with a wave.

“If you want some later let me know! I have a double batch.” Chewie says.

Chewie takes the jug and sets it down, “So Captain did you find out ....”

“Not now Chewie.” Justin said quickly.

“But if we are going ...”

Not Now Chewie.” Justin repeated with a edge to his voice.

Chewie apparently got the message and turned back to Wolf, “Firefly eh? Nice machine. Take you anywhere even if half the parts fail on you. Those aren’t the factory drive pods are they? You had work done recently?”

Day 1, Moringstar’s Ranchhouse, 6:30 PM PT

“Howdy. Name’s Wyatt Sung, Captain of Rocinante. This here is Willow, our ship doc, an’ the kid is Asher. Public relations. We was told t’ visit Mr. Morningstar on touchin’ down t’ get the lay o’ the land ‘fore we set out t’ make good our delivery. He isn’t, by chance, available fer a bit?”

The gentleman nods back at Asher and gives a polite smile to Willow. “Yes Mr. Morningstar is in his office in the back. I can take you to him if you’d like.” He turns back to his men and notices that more than a few are admiring Willow from where they stand. “Hey! What are you doing! I told you to get back to practice. Didn’t your mama ever tell you it is impolite to stare!” The men sheepishly return to the landmines and avert their eyes to the task at hand. Connors returns his attention back to you. “Just follow me. Sorry about that Ma’am. They don’t mean to be rude.”

Connors leads to the bi-level portion of the ranch house and holds the door open for all three of you to enter. There in the hallway you can see a stairwell going up to the second floor and several doorways closed on the mainfloor. There are several wooden pegs on the side wall for hanging jackets and hats and below them are more hooks for hanging ones sidearm. Connor point to these and says, “If you would oblige, I’d ask that you put your side arms up there. Miss Ellie, bless her soul, could never stand weapons in the house and although she is gone, we like to respect her wishes even now. Don’t worry, no one will mess with your stuff.”

(assuming you will. Connors is not armed btw and there are no guards in the hallway)

Connors leads you upstairs and down the hallway to a doorway. He knocks twice and then opens the door. “Mr. Morningstar. There is a Captain Wyatt Sung here to see you?”

“Okay Jon.” Says a deep voice from within, “Bring him on in.”

Connors opens the door wide and lets you enter the office. It is a large room, probably the master bedroom of the house converted over. A large dark wood desk is on the far right if the door with a lot of papers and a cortex box on top. There sits an older man in a white suit and a white hat who smiles and stands up as you enter the room.

Virgil Morningstar photo virgilMorningstar.jpg

Standing away from the desk is another man who is dressed in a Shepherd’s outfit. He Looks at you with curiousity and interest but his expression is more somber.

Shepard Wiley Carson photo ShepWileyCarson.jpg

“Thank you Jon. Good Evening to you,” The Man in White says and offers his hand, “I’m Virgil Morningstar and this here is Shepherd Wiley Carson. How can we help you?”

With that, Connor nods politely and leaves the room.

I would suggest you talk to the Baron and see what he wants from you. The brothers have instructions that they have to follow or blow their own cover.

The gateway into the cruise liner is protected with newtech SMART Weapon scanners and HIGH MOUNTED MACHINEGUNS. This is a GM warning.

Subject: my bad

I miss-understood about levers. There are no buttons or levers on the Iron Men.

Wembley can not quite reach the portal. It is open though. If Ivan stood on you he could reach it but it is a good 6 feet above the top of the cabinet.

You certainly know that grabbing the sword was attracted their attention.

BTW - Two of the four Iron Men are damaged now. Hard to tell how much but they are damaged.

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: round 2

Gamard swung with his newly enchanted staff and was reward with a definite "thang" and a dent in the armour. This time he felt like he had done something to the metal man.

Alondas cast another spell on himself in hopes to protect himself. He heard Crow's cry to help Mal get out of the room, but did not have the time to finish his spell and besides, Mal would have nothing of being lead away.

Crow ran to the cabinet and grabs the black sword in hopes to draw attention to him. It works as every one of the iron men turn and move toward him.

Mal attacks the ironmen as their attention is drawn away. He hits it with the pommel of his sword once and then a second time by to no avail.

Crow attacks with the new sword in order to defend himself. The round room means that he has no corners to limit the attacks of the creature. The sword strikes against the iron guards as if thet were of flesh and Crow's confidence is renewed as the sword pierces the metal.

Just as Crow is about to be attacked , the deluge of water created by Dudley pours down upon him and the Iron Men. Although it does not seem to hurt them, they do move out of the waters path and abort their physical attacks for a moment. Instead, a green gas begins to seep out of their bodies and fill the air. The gas burns your skin and lungs and there is nowhere to avoid it.

Wembley looks for levers of buttons to use in an effort to save his friends but there are none. The only thing up here is Ivan the cat and the portal in the ceiling.

OOC: Mal is seriously wounded, Gamard is lightly wounded
, everyone is lightly wounded by the gas.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Moving forward

“This Captain Jon Brown …..We need to get a message to the Baron.. the wedding planner drugged the crew and attempted to kidnap Lillianna, but failed.…She has escaped and is no longer on board. Our manifest is otherwise unchanged…. We would like to talk to the Baron about helping Seth to provide additional security, Asante may have others onboard.”

The yeoman shook his head and the content on the message and sat for awhile wondering what to do. He didn't know anyone this guy was talking about nor understood the threat suggested. Protocol would be to deny them docking and notify authorities but they were on the list of docking authorized and they were bringing guests for The Baron. Last thing the Yeoman wanted to do was upset the Baron. He wondered if the Captain of the ship was trying to be funny. After all, these Tramp freighter people were one step away from loony-ville anyway. He pressed his comm link and dialled a number.

"Hello, Baron Fairchild's Residence." A lovely feminine voice answered.

"Hello. The Is Yeoman-Purser Burl Smith. We have contact with the transport "Destiny" and it is making approach to dock."

"Excellent. The Baron wants to meet them when they do. How long until they are fully docked?"

"Umm, About 10 to 15 minutes Ma'am. There is just one thing. The Captain, named Jon Brown is ... well he is talking about a kidnap attempt and someone named Asante is no longer abroad. Here. let me play back the message to you."

The Woman on the line listened to the message and then there was a long pause. Yeoman Smith was pretty sure she was consulting with the Baron. "Thank you Yeoman Smith for your diligence. We appreciate you contacting us. have you informed security or anyone else of this?"

"No but I can if you'd like."

"No. We have taken precautions about the kidnapping threats and they were obviously successful. I believe the Captain was not properly apprized of the situation but the Baron will speak to him. Please let him that the Baron will met him in person when he docks and all will be made right."

"Yes Ma'am. Thank you Ma'am."

"No, thank you Yeoman. I will make sure we speak highly to your captain for your excellent work and discretion."

The Yeoman disconnected and smiled at the thought of someone complimenting his work to the captain. He reconnected to Destiny , "Captain Brown. The Baron is aware of your situation and will be meeting in the docking bay upon your arrival. Proceed to Docking 4b. Rim's Dream out."

Grace informed the Captain that she was going to remain in her room and monitor from the cameras in the docking bay. She did not want to risk the chance of Templeton seeing her so she felt this was the best course of action.

AJ and Rick reported to the Captain that they would have to follow their orders of meeting the Baron upon docking and leave with him. They would need all their stuff and an idea of what you wanted them to do after that.

Seth reported that Lilianna was not in the mood to see her father so he was willing to come out and talk to the Baron in her stead.

Stephanie came around with a orange flavoured drink for everyone on board. It was a vaccine to the drug that Asante used on you so that it could not affect you again.

Tess docked the ship with ease and soon the auto-latch engaged and the seal was created between ship and ship. The cargo bay doors opens to reveal a very clean docking bay with a lot of silver and white. Two armed security guards stood behind protective plastic barriers while three motion detecting machine guns located high above in the dock whirled into position to point toward you. Standing between the two guards is an older man in a very nice suit waiting you with a pleasant smile on his face. He is not armed beyond a cane in his hand and a cigar in his mouth. A feminine but computerized voice intones "Welcome to the Five Star Liner's Rim's Dream. No weapons are allowed pass this point. Have a nice day."

The Baron steps forward and says loudly, "So which of you is Captain Jon Brown? I believe we have much to discuss."

OOC: OK. I need to know who is there beyond the Captain, the Brothers and Seth. Do you want JC there with Angela in the background?

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: sneaky sneaky

Sparrow examines the footprints in the dirt by the statues. She has seen these before although not quite as big - Were-rats. Judging by their gait and foot print, Sparrow would estimate they are probably slightly bigger than an average man and there seems to be a lot, although it is hard to tell exactly how many.

Lun's divination to detect evil proves to be a mistake. She is quickly overwhelmed by the intensity of evil that comes from all parts of the cave - the walls, the floor and the ceiling. She has to dismiss the spell quickly as she feels her sanity beginning to slip deep into the abyss that stared back at her.

Maximus moves forward into the cave, passed the statue and the inky blackness while holding Hoth in his hand. It allows his to see the walls and floor before him, but not much more. He continues slowly, checking for traps as he goes and then the cavern turns and the darkness limit is reached. Before the large thief is a huge cavern, illuminated by moss that gives off a din light. The cavern is long and wide and there are three large cave mouths on one side. On the opposite side, the side a dirt hill that ascends from the back of the cave upwards to 30 feet high. The hilltop is completely covered with the same pure blackness that he came through to get here.

There are creatures moving with great haste in here, all of them large ratlike creatures walking like men. Except these were-rats all have four arms and wear a banded armour. They have sheaths of javelins on their back and spears in the lower sets of hands. As Maximus watches, many of them run up the embankment and into the cover of darkness.

Maximus retreats from his hiding spot and returns to the party to let them know what is waiting for them - an ambush.
