You may want to look at John's character sheet before you start handing him more guns or expecting to start blazing gunfights.

I have updated the game to get everyone in the same room. This is your chance to tell everyone what news you have and give your input on the plan.

My plan is to have everyone post their thoughts by the end of next weekend so I can do a post bringing things together for getting the plan ready and we can pause for the Christmas holidays.

Subject: Finally!!!!! A post


LV-426, Rocinante Cargo Bay, 9:45 am PT

Willow made her way to the cargo bay, intending to use the ramp down to the planet's surface. She was pleasantly surprised to find Matheson was still there, fiddling with knobs on a black box in his hands.

"Mr. Matheson-san," Willow greeted him warmly, "thank you again for the loan of your men - they were most helpful in the medical bay. They told me that you know Miss Amber-sama, "she said neutrally while watching him closely," You will be glad to know that she is fine...just exhausted."

Matherson’s expression wavered slightly from a mask of pleasantry to a deep concern and back again. Willow would have missed it had she not been trained at reading people so well. “Exhausted? I’m sorry I have been so engrossed in my own affairs that I did not know she was taken ill. My men seem to enjoy being helpful so I have lost them again. I should check references better.” He sighs and puts the device he was working on down to face Willow fully. “May I ask what happened to Amber? I am not a layman with medical terms doctor so please be frank.”

(assuming some guarded explanation)

“I see.” Matherson nods but his concern cannot be masked now. Something is deeply botering him and it is causing an internal struggle in him.

(Leave for more for Willow)

"Captain Sung asked me to have a word with you," she continued. “I understand you are helping to determine who has been trying to transmit off planet. I guess that's what that item (she waved at the device in his hands) is for, but please, be careful. We have reason to believe that whoever it is has some pretty powerful technology at their disposal. Turned a substantial piece of engine into a pile of dust."

“Say what?” Matherson says so startled that his usual practiced manners fail him.

(assuming Willow repeats)

“Really. That is ... impossible but if you say it is so then ... “ He pulls himself upright and clears his throat in order to get his composure back. “I should really find my men and get to the caves quickly. I have no desire to put myself in harm’s way anymore today.”

He gives a polite goodbye and hurries on his way, calling out for Hack and Slash. As he leaves, Willow is left with the definite feeling that Matherson knew nothing about the engine part but the news has scared him.

LV-426, Rocinante, Kitchen 10:00 am PT

Tess returns with John from the Atmo processors. John has a radio receiver with him under his arm and a look of needing to tell the Captain something urgent. The crew is gathered together in the kitchen for the first time since this crazy rescure started.

How long have you been at it? Some of you wonder. It has been over 9 hours since you first got the call from the cruise liner. Some of you had been heading to bed at that point to so it has been a very long day and it was far from over.

Wyatt looked at his crew. No one was gonna to quit on him. No one was looking for him to offer an easy way out. He knew that. Every set of eyes that lloked back at him would willing die for him if the need was there. Wyatt could only hope that there was no need but things were about to get dire soon.

Time to talk about the plan. Time to get people ready.

“First, let me just say that I’m sorry I didn’ do this sooner. Now onto the grit.

“My plan is t’ split the merc forces amongst multiple possible locations where the case could be buried. We’ve got them overly-bright boys buildin’ us some makeshift bombs t’ use at the sites. I want Asher and that grifter that was carryin’ one o’ them to scout out some good locations and set it up t’ look like we buried the case there. We’ll rig some o’ the explosives t’ blow into the faces o’ the mercs using tripwires.

“I’m scrappin’ the repairs on Roc jus’ now. WIthout that coil we can’t do nothin’. So we need t’ find a way t’ get off-planet an’ take the merc’s command ship. That has t’ be a long-range spacecraft, and once we do that we can pick up the parts we need fer Roc an’ come back for her. As I see it, this plan still has some loose ends. For one, someone is performin’ the espionage on Roc that’s put us dry an’ high. That person, or a team of people, is likely also tied int’ the mercs. Now, I’ve enlisted Matherson an’ his men t’ search these rats out--I know, I know,” Wyatt held up his hands to forestall any comments. “It’s as likely as not that Matherson is behind all this as well, but by placin’ him in charge o’ something we can hopefully figure out whether ‘r not this is the case. All the same, we got t’ be aware o’ this particular challenge.

“Second, we got t’ give the mercs reason to check all the sites at once so that they actually do split up. An’ third, we gotta figure out where to put the case. Finally, we gotta figure out how t’ hijack tha’ ASREV, make it back to the base ship, an’ take that from highly-trained, blood-thirsty mercenaries.

“Aside from those minor points,” Wyatt scanned the faces before him. “I was figurin’ on Ma an’ Willow stayin’ with the patients in the medbay. Sifu is with the passengers, but I don’t like jus’ leavin’ the li’l guy alone with that lot. But we’re gonna need all the guns we got here when it comes right down to it. So, I’m open to suggestions. Because right now, I’m about t’ send Tess and--what’s-her-name?--Jessy?--to the caves t’ back Sifu up, an’ make sure Matherson an’ his boys stay in line. That’d leave me, Asher, Wolf, John, an’ Ma t’ take care of whatever firefight erupts here when the mercs show. So, if’n anyone has any better ideas, now’s the time t’ speak up, because Time...well, she ain’t on our side.”

OOC: At this point Jessie is not in kitchen but in the cargo bay. Asher, Wolf, Willow, Ma, John and Tess are all in the kitchen. Matherson has left with Hack and Slash. Sifu would be radioing now if he wants to inform Captain of the power in the cave. I will post the exploration of the caves later as I have run out of lunch time.)

I will ask everyone to give me a breakdown of gear taking before merc land. Do not give me a bullet by bullet count - I really don't track things like that unless necessary.

Put up a post. Sorry about repeating the Tess/Grace conv but I was afraid it might have been missed and I wasn't sure if Grace or Tess were going to add to it.

Subject: Find a job, do a job, get paid, repeat


Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Badger’s Office, 6:45 pm ST

Business at Badger’s office was concluded with a handshake agreement and a quick goodbye as you were escorted out. One could not help but feel the need to check that any rings you were wearing were still on your fingers after shaking the Crimelord’s hand. On the way back to the ship, The captain mused aloud, “You know it seems a bit twitchy to have go pick these folk up in some hidey place, almost like there may be more to this than take'n a bride to her wedd'n."

It was a wonder and as you pondered it more and more questions blossomed up now that the edge and nervousness of the meaning was done. So many variable here for such an easy job. But then again, shipping wine to a social function was an easy job too.

JC had suspicions about the brothers, that much was sure. Jon knew JC well enough to know when the gunman was itching about something.

Tess radioed to Grace to let her know they were coming back. “Destiny! This is Tess. Ya'll awake in there?"

The multiband crackled slightly, and Grace’s voice chirped out of it, "Hey, Quing Ting, we are very awake and very bored. How goes the mission?"

"Gracie! Jin joh bu chi chi fah joh, woman! You were right,” Tess gritted her teeth and kept her voice down, “That man were every bit as a trumped up strutting lao chien as I ever did see. I am every bit suprised that da shiong la se la ch'wohn tian gave us the gorram job!"

"Okay, first things first, what the heck happened? What did he do to get you all riled up?"

"It's a long, wu toh wu now ugly. Suffice it to say, Mr. Kai Tze did give us the runaround, and he did call Destiny a garbage scow, and he did throw his lei sh'un da yui dian shoo reputation around like it was a gorram crown!

Ang came to the rescue. He took a shine to her, in which we may have to be making some excuses later. I'll let her tell that story.”

She drew breath, her finger still pushing down the comm. button. Tess’s dark eyes took in Angela walking beside her, and her brain reeled momentarily at the enigma that was their shipmate.

“Which reminds me,” she continued into the multiband, “Be sure to be addin' "Companion training" to the list of skills that Ang may or may not be learn'ed in."

“Don’t be forgittin’ to be addin’ this here little date of ya’lls into yer journal, Ang,” she said to Angela after letting go of the comm. button, “Star it, highlight it, sneeze on it, whatever to be rememberin’ yer appointment with our new employer.”

"Angela did what?,” Grace’s voice exclaimed, “Ugh, this is the last time I go to that one for job outings... Wait, Badger liked Angela!? Man she likes catching us off guard"

"Damn right she does,” Tess dodged around a little Chinese man trying to push painted umbrellas into her arms, “Kaida, we're leavin' this rock tonight. We'll be runnin' hot, but not full burn the whole way, so work whatever magic over on our girl before we head out. Could ya'll tell Steph to meet me in our guest rooms? Might'n be wantin' to sweep out the dust bunnies before we git our passengers."

"Will do, Quing Ting. See you soon."

"Sheh sheh. Be there in ten."

(Not sure if Grace wants to warn the team about new person awaiting them)

Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Destiny cargo Bay, 7:00 pm ST

When the away team arrives at the ship, the cargo bay is open and as you enter you can hear the sound of conversation coming from the infirmary. Grace, Stephanie and a young lady none of you have seen before are there. As soon as they see you come in, the conversation stops. Stephanie stands and walks over to beside Jon, and says. “Everyone. This is Catie Yueshi. Catie, this is Jon, Angela, Tess and JC. Catie is a colleague of mine that is well versed with prosthetics and genetics. I thought she might be able to help us so I invited her to join us.”

(assuming a what? Huh? What do you mean?)

“She needs a place to stay Jon." Stephanie said in that tone that brokered no argument. "Much like many on this ship already, she needs a place where she can stay off the grid and out of the watchful eye. Of course, if this is a problem, I am sure that there are other ships that could find room for two well trained medical personnel.”

I will be tying up the loose ends in my post, cover the caves exploration, willow and Matherson's chat and getting everyone at the meeting. Bromern post is really important as it is the best time for everyone to voice opinions, tell the crew about things you discovered (John) and idea for plans.

I would like to get the meeting wrapped up and the plan being setup by the time we stop for the christmas holidays.

I would assume that Sifu would have taken his personal effects with him including any of the weapons he owns. Not knowing of Asher's Gun Store, he probably did not rifle through the kid's stash.

Subject: Save the bottle, save the world


The room was plunged into darkness. Alôndas threw the bottle at the attacker and took a step back while lower his staff. There was jarring against his arm as his staff was hit, but from the side instead of the front, and there was a sound like wood striking the stone floor.

Mal leaped forward to defend the mage from certain...wooden sword thrashing. He took a blow to his face but hit nothing but air with his sabre.

Gamard the Grim called forth to his God and was rewarded with a light spell illuminating the room from the end of his staff. But just as he did though, the candles relit themselves again as they had when you entered the room.

The man in back lies on his back, unmoving. He is no longer holding his wooden sword (it lies on the ground beside him) but is clutching the bottle of vodka that Alôndas threw in both hands, tight to his chest. It appears that he dropped his sword in order to save the bottle from smashing.

The blow to Mal was actually from the mage’s staff that he ran into as he jumped forward. Luckily, his pride is hurt more than he is, except a bit of redness around the face. Somehow his hat remained on his head though.

The Man in black lies still. He is not moving. He is not breathing as far as you can see (no chest movement).

Wembley stop himself before going out the portal now that light had returned. Crow wisely decided to hold the fire of his bow instead of firing arrows blind into a crowd. Dudley stands by the stairs down, with club in hand.
