Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Outside of "The Wreckage", 9:30 PM PT

Nelson O’Reilly staggering angrily toward them, locking on Asher and his fists are clenched with rage.

“You must be the engineer that Colleen here tells me she loves…Nelson, right?” Nelson makes a wild swing at Asher that he easily ducks, but Nelson stumbles and falls into the dirt. “Hey we was just going to get some noodle… want to join us?”

Nelson gets up and charges towards Asher again. “Nelson don’t!” Collen yells angrily at him.

“At lot of noodles and little talk’n could make for a shiny evening.” Asher as he sidesteps the drunken man and he falls on the ground again.

“Waitaminutedidhesayyouloveme?” Nelson says loudly with face in the dirt.

“Yeah he did, Nelson,” Comes a voice from behind both Asher and Colleen. They turn to see an older gentleman, probably in his 50’s or 60’s with short hair and a serious look on his face. “Now come on. Enough with this and let’s go home.”

Hewlett Stewart

“Umm Captain I can explain.” Collen says hesitantly.

“I am sure you can.” The man replies. “But later, let’s take care of our own. Max? Xian?”

A big man in a plain white t-shirt and camo pants comes forth and helps Nelson up. He nods a silent thanks to Asher. Behind him comes a rather short exotic looking lady. She is oriental but her eyes glow blue – literally (mech eyes) and her long hair is pure white as are her eyebrows. She also helps with Nelson but she examines him briefly that same way Willow would have. “He’s had a Go Sa load, Hew but he’ll be okay. Need to throw up and sleep it off.”

“iain’tgonnathrow..”Nelson objects before throwing up on the ground between Max and Xian.

“Right, come on Colleen.” The Captain says in a tone that allows no argument. He offers his hand to Asher. “Thanks for not decking my mechanic. Can’t say I would have blamed you if you had. And also for being a gentleman with Colleen there.”

(assuming a response)

“You not on a hauler are you?”

(assuming answer)

“Right. Well, if you ever need anything I can help with, I’m Hewlett Stewart, Captain of the Morgan Creek.”

(Intro – If you mention Rocinante you’ll get a slight cock of the head and a smile from the Captain)

“Ahh. Transport. Never could enjoy that life. Not for everyone I guess.”

Suddenly, Asher’s comm squawks awkwardly, “The mule’s headin’ back t’ Roc. Any o’ you lot need a ride?” Wyatt’s voice calls out.

Colleen waves to Asher, “Thanks Ash. Hope to see you around the Verse someday.”

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, "The Slaughterhouse", 9:30 PM PT

Sam smiles his best fly-boy smile at her as he deposits the now empty glass on the table with a solid ‘thunk.’ “Seein’s how t’morrow’s shapin’ up ta be a pi guh kicker o’ a day, sweetness,” he adds, beginning to rise from his seat and offering a hand by way of invitation, “if yer wantin’ that tour, I figger, now’s th’ time.”

“What? Sure! I ain’t looking for you to take me away though.“ She says taking Sam’s hand to stand up.

Sam’s smile brightens as her hand slips into his and, as she gets to her feet, he nudges her chair out of the way with the toe of his boot. “So, Miss Knowles,” he grins, sounding a bit more flirtatious than the formal address might bear, “Ya got a ride er ya want we should try an’ catch up ta ol’ Wyatt?”

“I got my horse if you don’t mind riding bitch.” Misty replies eagerly. She then realizes what she just said and blushes prettily, “Umm, I mean riding pillion not that I umm, let’s just let that one slide by.” And she laughs. “I’ve been called worst but not by myself.”


The ride and drive back to the ship is uneventful. Sam and Wyatt notices the deputy watching the Slaughterhouse as well but he makes no move to engage or even make eye contact with you

If Sam asks Misty – “Oh yeah. Patience likes to keep an eye on every pie. She tried going into the Slaughterhouse but everyone just stops talking and stares at her until she leaves. Patience don’t intimidate easily but not many can stand to looks and the silence. So she posts men outside and they track everyone whop goes in and out, as if that means something to the Governor.”

Sung spots Ma reading up in the observation dome. His discovery causes a short detour as he is inclined to hike the small staircase which draws the scarred woman’s attention to him.

“How’s the girl?” he puts towards her.

Ma nods her head and gives a small hand gesture That Wyatt knew meant all was well but Ma was worrying. Ma always worried. She wrote a brief note on her pad and showed it to the Captain, ‘Doctor is taking good care of her. You should talk to her though’.”

“Well, we got another dilemma,” Sung quietly remarks while removing his hat and running his free hand through his black hair. “I picked up work, but we leave t’morrow night so we’ve got t’ find a solution fer the girl’s predicamen’. Think on that, will ya, Ma? I’m not too keen on becomin’ a wet nurse while tryin’ t’ earn a livin’.”

Ma gestured a quick three step motion with her hand denoting things stacking up. Another note ‘Mrs. Wilson has family on Bellerophon. Offering to pay us some upfront and to stock our larder, sister will pay us more on drop off. By any chance would our job take us anywhere near there?”

(Pegasus is a moon of Bellerophon)

Dipping his head in polite thanks to the woman who holds the crew together, the captain of the boat strolls back down into the dining room and through it to the forward hall. There he is met by Doctor Stephanie who is making herself a tea. “Ahh Captain! Good evening. I hope your evening was prosperous?”


“Good. Good to hear. Chloe is doing well. She is responding well to rest and nutrition. Has Patricia already filled you in on Mrs. Wilson offer?


“Right. Well I want to go in the morning to the local Church and see if I can see the Father. I don’t like assuming he is a … bad person by birthright. I will be discreet. A number of the staff here go to church in the morning so I will mix in with them. I should be fine without an armed escort.”

(response, will leave it here and add more as W responds)

Dropping down his ladder into the homey chamber that is his quarters, Wyatt tosses his hat on his bed and immediately moves to Cortex terminal.

As the screen flares to life, Sung removes his gunbelt and hangs it on the back of the chair. “Let’s see what I can find on ol’ Saul Potter…” he mutters as he drops into the chair and stretches the tension out of his shoulders.

(I will PM you the results)

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Inside "The Honeydew", 10:30 PM PT

Wolf headed back toward the Slaughterhouse to talk to Eagle Eye. He saw that the Mule was gone, not a surprise as the Captain wasn’t one for late nights in a bar. The mechanic looked inside the Slaughter house and saw that his friend Eagle- eye was still there.

(Assume you approach)

Eagle-Eye looked up at Wolf, “Your crew left about an hour or so ago. They called you but your weren’t answering. Not getting into trouble I hope?”

Wolf tells him about the fight – “well. Now that is interesting. I kinda suspected you would. You always enjoys a good scrap.”


“Listen though. Bart may work for a real bad person but as far as I can tell, he ain’t. He does what he does cause it is a way of life. You ain’t fighting for your life anymore so just leave Perdition behind Dohn Ma?”


“I’m just saying! You don’t need to kill him. That’s all. Said my piece. Now who was the lady? And don’t play coy with me Wolf, I may have one eye but I can see the twinkle in both of yours.

Tann - You are an hour ahead of everyone unless you want to have your time with Clementine lasting only ten minutes (including clothing removal and dressing). So you won't catch up to Ash or have a ride. You can check the Slaughterhouse and see if EE is there still.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, "The Slaughterhouse", 9:10 PM PT


“Will you be needin’ any help loadin’ up? Any special needs fer the cargo? How many people are we talkin’ ‘bout?” Wyatt glances back towards the card game he had left to engage in these business dealings and watches the engagement for a short few seconds before turning back to Saul. “Whatever info you can share will help me an’ mine in givin’ you an’ yers a smooth ride. Ku?”

“Everything will be on a wheeled trailer, packed and ready to drop into your cargo bay. We shouldn’t require a lot of help for that. As I said, it will be four passengers, including myself. Two gentlemen are up for any heavy lifting.” Saul finished his drink, “The last one will be an older gentleman, a bit slow because he walks with a cane but we’ll take care of our own.

“If’n I don’ see ya until t’morrow night, zhen tama yaoming. Zhuyi.” Not knowing all of the details, Sung feels the warning relevant.

Saul smile that sad smile again, “Tian fuhn di fu. It is the way of the verse. bai zhé bù náo.


“So,” he says, wincing slightly at the burn of the whiskey in his throat, “Ya ain’t never been off-world, huh? Not even once?”

“You kidding me? No! My parents came here to start a new life and make their fortune, they only got it half right.” She said tossing back her drink and looking suddenly bot hangry and sad at the same time. She snakes her head, pushing whatever memories back down. “I’d love to leave this all behind some day but I got my Ma here to take care of and she kinda needs me here. SO I’m stuck here, looking to sky while growing roots.”

Dash’s eyes widen a bit. His expression obviously stating that the concept of being planet-bound for the entirety of one’s life is completely alien to him. “Hell, girl,” Sam grins, “Ya ever even seen the inside of a transport?”

“Can’t say that I have, you inviting me?“ She asks, trying to sound nonchalant but clearly interested. “Or are you just hoping to give me the tour of your bunk?”

Wyatt makes his way over to Sam and Misty. “Hate t’ interrupt, puhn yoh, but I’m takin’ the mule back t’ Roc. Any o’ the lot ya who’s wantin’ t’ head back now better hump it, otherwise, yer providin’ yer own ride or radioin’ an’ waitin’ ‘til someone can pick ya up.”

(Misty looks on as Sam talks to Wyatt but her face shows that she thinks any tours are now cancelled.)

Scanning the barroom, Sung gently chews on the inside right of his bottom lip. Asher isn’t anywhere to be seen and Wolf seems to have wandered off as well so he’s going to have to radio them and fill them in on his plans.

“Don’ get chun. We got work t’ prepare for t’morrow. Dohn ma?”

As Wyatt heads towards the door, Eagle-Eye comes up to him, “You get what you were looking for, Captain?” he asks.


“Alright, Glad to have helped then. You leaving immediately? Or will you be sticking around a day?”


“Good to hear. See you ion the morning then.”

The ride home will go without incident, with or without passengers but I need to see Ash’s response before I can say what happens next.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Inside "The Honeydew", 10:00 PM PT

Duncan watches Wolf go upstairs, more with a curious eye than one that is tracking you. He doesn’t nod or acknowledge the mechanic in any way.

Clementine is more companionable than most women in her trade, especially a backwater planet like Whitefall. She is good, doesn't rush you and knows how to please so an hour with her feels like an entire evening and a short spell at the same time. She is less “rip, tear, fling” and more “unlace, undo and sashay”. She is a bit shocked at Wolf’s tattoo on his back and doesn’t know what Perdition is, but comments that the body art looks like it was most painful to get. While it may not be the best experience of Wolf’s life, it will certain rank among the top three for awhile. Laying with Clementine in his arms in a soft cuddle Fenris talked in a casual conversation.

“Thank you Miss Clementine you were quite nice.” A slight blush on his cheeks.

“Thank you but I was trying to be more naughty than nice.” She laughs shyly and slyly at the same time. “You just make atmo? What brings you to our corner of the verse?”

“Yeah, working with Eagle Eye, needed the money.” Though he felt no threat Fenris was not going to reveal too much of his plans to challenge Bart.

“Oh yeah? Eagle Eye is a good man. You can’t do better than him on this rock. More than I can say for most.”

“So whats the tale of the big guy with the two girls? Heard tell he is some kind of champ or something.” Wolf asks coyly, or as coyly as any straight shooter could.

“Bart? He’s one of Patience’s men. I’m sure you heard of our dear governor. Bart is supposedly a ranch hand but it’s an open secret that he don’t do nothing except train and fight for her in the ring.” She looks at Wolf with a sudden realization, “You planning on fighting him? Oh honey, don’t. You have such a nice face, I’d hate to see it mashed up.”

"I was just curious seeing we are about the same size and I'm new in town I'm worried he might try to get me to fight him." Pausing to smile "After all I'm a lover not a fighter. Well Miss Clementine you were amazing and don't be surprised if you see me again." Kissing her hand, Fenris quickly dressed.

Clementine made a face of dubiousness and disbelief. “Men.” She sighed, “Listen. Bart was injured about six months back – equipment snapped on him, broke a rib on his left side and he favours it slightly.” She drew a line across Wolf’s left ribcage as he tugged on his shirt. “Now Patience had him taken care of and I ain’t saying it will help but … well there you go. “ She said with a shrug, “Just protect your face.”

OOC: Note that Wolf is ahead of the rest in time now by an hour

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, "The Slaughterhouse", 9:00 PM PT

“Mr. Potter,” the captain turns to address their potential patron and look him straight in the eye, “You got yerself transport. Rocinante is currently at Eagle Eye’s ranch. Do you need her elsewhere t’ load up, an’ when’re you wantin’ t’ clear atmo?”

Saul smiles widely and offers his hand to shake on the deal. “Tomorrow night, late, after the fights have ended which should be around 10ish.” He started moving items on the table around. The warehouse is where they do the fights, and it draws a crowd. A big one. Near the warehouse is a junkyard. If you park on the far side of the yard – there’s an open field there among some trees. We can all meet, gather up your people from the fight and my people with their stuff and get out asap. I’ll be at the warehouse, I’ll pay you the five then, but my people will be packing up and tying up the loose ends.”

(any questions)

Sam ordering a refill for himself and another of "whatever she's drinkin'." Kim pours a tall glass of the cheapest whiskey as the “for her”. Then, both drinks in hand, he'll approach the brunette and, setting the drink down in front of her, say something like "Ni how, darlin'... Ya look's if ya c'n use this. Name's Dash..."

She looks up and smiles prettily, “Why thank you Dash. Is that your first name, last name or you’re so poor you could only afford one name?” She laughs heartily and takes the drink, downing half in a single swing. “I’m Michelle, but everyone calls me Misty. Misty Knowles.” She motions to the chair beside her, “Take a load off.”

(assuming Dash sits and makes conversation)

“I ain’t see you before. You with Eagle-Eye? Good man to work for, wish I was so lucky. What’s you business on Whitefall? I can never fathom people coming out this go sa rock willingly. I was born here so that’s my ball and chain but what’s yours?”

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Outside of "The Slaughterhouse", 9:00 PM PT

Asher walked a little bit closer to Collen, not sure what to do he just softly said, “You know it would be nice to get some noodles….do you know where they serve some good noodles? Noodles would be good right about now……”.

Colleen gave him a raised eyebrow. “Umm. Yeah, there a little place next The Wreck. Actually, now that you mention it, drinking on an empty stomach was probably not a good idea. We could go there.”

(assuming a yes)

Colleen and Ash walk towards the centre of town. Colleen is quiet now, no longer crying. She sighs heavily, “Sorry I dumped all this on you. It is nice of you to listen to me.”

(assuming an answer)

“Truth is, getting drunk and having revenge Wa Cao with some complete stranger ain’t gonna solve my problems. I’m kinda glad you came by. Hope you aren’t disappointed.

(assuming an answer)

“Well you are very sweet. Thank you.” She says and leans over to kiss Ash firmly on the cheek.

(Assuming as “aww…shucks”)

The moment is lost as someone hollers out loudly in your direction, “Kwai Jio Kai, you Wang bao dahn! You can’t steal my girl you Yi Da Dwei Bun Chou Roh!

Both of you turn to see Nelson O’Reilly staggering toward you angrily. He drops the mostly empty bottle he is carrying and pockets a small black box into his overalls. His eyes are locked on Asher and his fists are clenched with rage.

OOC: Despite having a sidearm at his side, and definitively in a fit of rage, he is not going for his weapon.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, "The Slaughterhouse", 8:40 PM PT

So, this is what I’m conjurin’ up,” Wyatt said, “Eight hun’red plus the drums already on the table an’ an additional five hun’red should there be a need t’ engage in any kind o’ cowboyin’ plus the cost o’ any munitions spent in yer service. Hazard pay, dohn ma?”

“If ya wanna kick it up to an even thousand,” Sam interjected, “I figger I could see to it as we get there quiet-like.” He shrugged a little. “It’d take an extra day but we’d keep off the scanners an’ outta the sight o’ any pryin’ eyes, get me?”

At the moment of your counteroffer, Saul’s face loses it composure. It is like you slapped him hard and he is reeling with the need to recover. All hope and dreams drain from his face and you are left feeling like you told him that his dog just died. He recovers quickly though and laughs, a ruefully self- depreciating kinda of laugh, and motions over to a table that is emptying.

“Shall we sit down, Gentlemen?” Her ask politely while taking a seat and setting his drink down, “First off I am not one of those Potters. Well technically I am but they cut me off and disowned me back when I joined the independence side over the alliance. If I was still in their good graces, I would gladly pay you what you asked.”

(knowledge check for both of you – The Potters are one of the richest families in the central planets. Major shareholders of Blue Sun Inc. and other major industrial manufacturers through the verse. Bromern and Eol - check you PM for additional info)

“That being said, I never fault a man for wanting to make enough money to feed their family and keep them safe. In many ways it is what I’ve being doing ever since the war ended. I’ve the mind you been doing the same despite what the news vids say about your recent professional protection. As a good friend of mine says, ‘alliance lies to suit their needs’ so I am going a bit on faith with you. Hell, I survived on less before.

“But I digress. Let’s be truthful here so we can come to an agreement. I don’t have more than 500 to give you at the start and I can only spare 5 drums. Unless your man who just left can actually beat Bart in the ring, I have no way to gather more funds between now and tomorrow when we leave. But, there are funds where we are going, if you can wait a tic. I can easily offer you another 1000 on Pegasus, bullets flying or not, but I am looking for quiet like and off the scanners in two days.” He says holding two fingers up for emphasis. “Now I believe you are up to that challenge if half of what I hear about you is true. Also, Pegasus is in its apogee so that will cut down the flight time. Now we get there, there is an opportunity to make double what I am offering but I can’t speak of that until we get there and it won’t make your alliance friends happy. So if this ain’t your cup of tea, well I am happy to pay for your drinks and call it a day. What do you say?”

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Inside "The Honeydew", 8:40 PM PT

Stymied in his attempt to get more on Bart, Wolf handed his chip to Earl and asked for Clementine. Earl smiled broadly as he took it and pressed a buzzer under the counter. “You’re in for a treat, friend” he said and then gestured to the rack of spirits behind him, “Miss Pennyfeather is one of the best. Another Ng-Ka-Pei?”

Clementine Pennyfeather

Clementine Pennyfeather comes down the stairs with a slight coy smile on her face, dressed in a fancy blue dress, cut very high in front to show off thigh-high stockings and a peek at her bare legs. There is something perfectly beguiling about her, as if every aspect of her was made for seduction. She comes to the bottom of the stairs and smiles at Wolf, “Welcome Newcomer.” She says in a voice like an angel with a hint of a colonial accent, “Care to follow me? My… you are a big one, aren’t you? Are they all big like you back home or are you just extraordinary?”

(Assuming some conversation as you go upstairs with her)

She lets you into the room. It is tastefully decorated with a king size bed, four poster with canopy and a few outfits on display of various designs and suggestion. She closed the door behind her and asks, “Were you looking for quick and easy or did you want the full hour? I don’t mind either way but you look like you might want to linger a bit. Oh, and just cause your new, if you lay a hand on me the wrong way, there are men outside that can be here in two seconds and they won’t ask questions before they lay you out. ”

(Assuming some conversation. Keep it PG please)

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Outside of "The Slaughterhouse", 8:40 PM PT

“S’ok…..hell I’ve been in the black long enough them’s just words….ya gotta get’um out sometimes or they can rot ya from inside….”

Ash stowed Fenris’s gear in Roc’s mule and locked them away safe. “Well it’s still a pretty night.. I can keep quiet’n listen to ya liberal tongue all you need.” The two started to walking into town.

Whether it is by nature or years of being on guard, but Asher always keeps an eye out, even with a pretty lady. He notices that a man is outside the Slaughterhouse, across the street and watching the door. He ain’t wearing a badge but something about the stance and the thigh slung holster makes Ash think this is one of Patience’s deputy. He isn’t watching Ash or Colleen though, he is just keeping an eye on the doorway.

“You ain’t like most guys are you?” Colleen asks, “Most guys just want to get under my shirt as fast as possible.“

(assuming some response)

“So what am I to do now? I love Nelson. I really do but now he gone and screwed it up royally. Part of me wants to forgive him and pretend it never happened and another parts knows I can never trust him again. Why do men always cheat? Tell me?”

(assuming some very evasive response)

“Hell I ain’t sure I’m even the marrying type. I’ve been true to Nelson but I thought about stepping out once or twice. Hell, 20 minutes ago I was fully intending on making you a happy man for a night. So I’m just as bad right?

(assuming some response)

“Maybe I tell Nelson, that is it. He humps who he wants and I jump my own. Fair is fair, we stay friends right?”

(assuming some response)

“No, I don’t want that though….” She starts crying again.

Day 1, Whitefall - Necessity, Rocinante, 8:40 PM PT

Mrs. Wilson smiled, “Well I have a cousin working a farm on the southern end of Bellerophon continent. She said she could take Chloe in and the baby. She can even give you some credits for all your trouble when you get there.”

“I’ll tell the Captain that. Send me the coordinates so we know where to go and I will let you know what he says. I am not asking for money but the Captain may appreciate a contribution to the fuel costs.”

Chloe awoke suddenly, “I ain’t leaving Petrie.” She said groggily.

“Chloe, dear, Petrie is not gonna help you.” Mrs. Wilson admonished.

“You don’t know him. He hates his dad. Wants to be his own person. He loves me and wants to do right by me.”

“Oh they all say that Chloe. Trust me, Petrie won’t defy his father.”

“Perhaps we should ask first?” Stephanie interjected.

“What?” Mrs. Wilson exclaimed, “Ask? You’ll endanger Chloe if you speak to them!”

“I am aware of the dangers Mrs. Wilson but you are working on assumptions that may not be true. We can not just discount the father without attempting to speak to him. Surely we can create some form of subterfuge to speak to Petrie in confidence?”

“Men can not be trusted in my experience.” Mrs. Wilson pronounced.

“Yes. I got the impression that was your way of thinking. Tell me, where does this boy live? Where does he hang out for fun? I am sure that between the two of us, I can find a way to reach him without confrontation of the authorities.”

Getting old sucks, I recommend you avoid it at all costs.

I am looking at Wednesdays being my posting day as I have free time in the evening and a laptop now. As well, Wed is my "rest day" from working out. I am currently training for the CN Tower stair climb (1776 stairs).

Running on fumes lately. Having a lot of sleep issues for the last few weeks. Nothing different from the sleep issues I have had all my life but normally I get a break here and there. This has been three week of constant early waking.

Anyway, enough of my whining. I may post the counter offer from Saul since it doesn't effect the other story lines.

No complaints here. Glad to see it actually.

I have to check but did Wyatt look up Potter on the cortex before the meeting?

Subject: okay lets look at this

You are not paying anything while sitting in a field. You would have to move to a spaceport to refuel, do maintenance etc. Considering it will be a higher price here than any other planet, you may not want to do so. Besides, in a port, Patience can put a land lock on you and search your ship.

Fuel on Whitefall is controlled by Patience. While it is usually 5 credits a ton, here it is 15.

Roc has a 60 ton tank. You have 15 tons in the tank right now. so to fill up would cost you 675. Sorry, I don't know where I got 800 from, math is hard.

Potter has offered you 500 cr plus 5 of his drums, so another 10 tons. Note that this is his opening offer, he may be willing to haggle. Normally for three day journey it is 50 c a person and 175 c for the cargo (on the low end). So you are looking at 375 would be the lowest and he is starting at 500 plus 150 c worth of fuel (Planet pricing).

Now remember that Roci's new engines are fuel efficient so you get an extra 25% out of the fuel, so 25 tons of fuel is really 312.5 hours of flight. So even with hard burn, you could get to Pegasus and beyond to fuel up at a decent rate.

The part about shares and how much money you have now seems correct to me.

Does this help? I hope so.
