Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: Along came a spider or three

Kilgim grabs Dapple firmly and holds him as he finishes his prayer, "Don't give me lip 'laddie'" He says quietly and then pushes his healing power into her. Dapple is somewhat amazed once again at the strength of the dwarf and how he really cannot be moved if he doesn't want to be.

Arien sees the threads retreat and is released from his guard so he engages the spider that Maximus is facing. Arien moves to the right flank, opposite to the gladiator and attacks with his flaming sword. the creature moves fast and dodges the first blow but Arien strikes hard with a backhand follow through to the side of its face as it tried to bite him.

Flynn draws on his fiddle and play fiery angry burst of music while muttering an incantation. From the fiddle bursts forth a flaming arrow that strikes the spider that is fighting Maximus and Arien. The flames spread across the arachnid's upper body, causing it great pain.

Maximus moves to the left and dodges a swipe of the spider to hot hard with his vorpal blade. The wound is the final blow to the spider as it collapses and twitches once before dying.

Adrian moves to attack the downed spider, dismissing the greased area so not to trip himself up. He strikes a hard blow, deep into the head of the spider. The blow is not enough to kill it and the spider manages to get a bite in on the mage. The wound is a small one but the Adrian staggers and falls, frothy mucus coming out of his mouth.

Char moves with speed and grace to hit the spider with a mighty overhand blow before running and launching himself in the air off the far wall. As he does the spider attempts to bat him out of the way and manages to knock Char flying onto its back. As Char hurriedly tries to find a hold, the spider thrashes around, madly attempting to dislodge its passenger.

Dapple sizes up the situation quickly and quickly runs wide of the fallen spider and Arien to throw daggers at the spider near Adrian. All three daggers find their marks and the spider squeals pitifully before dying.

Dapple: Fine (back to full)
Arien: Lightly Wounded
Char: lightly wounded, Ride'm cowboy
Adrian: Lightly wounded - Poisoned
Two spiders dead, only the one being ridden by Char is alive and it is seriously wounded.

Topic: Escape From Castle Rautenberg
Subject: Dead man walking

In all the times that Karl had used this lodge for his recreation, no one had ever accidently come this way. It was very remote and away from civilization, which is why he liked it, just as his father had before him.

"Nothing is wrong citizen! " Karl called out but pulled his luger from side holster, and backing to the door. The girl was on the floor where she had fell after he slapped her, not crying as most do but not moving either.

Karl flung open the door (it does open inwards to the cabin) and looked for this lost hunter or farmer who dared to disturb his fun. The light from inside spilled out and he saw a man standing at some distance. he took a step forward and was about the open up on the man when the barrel of the shotgun caught his peripheral vision.

McGuiness saw the blond haired soldier open the door and had the man's forehead in sight, ready for the kill. Then suddenly, the man convulsed. An arrowhead seem to blossom out of the lower part of his neck.

Romo and Brutal watched as the quarrel head popped out of the man's upper chest. He coughed ounce and had a face that looked shocked at his own death. Then he fell to the ground at Brutal's feet, no longer breathing.

Inside, McGuiness and Romo can see a very pretty blond women crouched on the floor on the far side of the cabin. She is hurriedly reloading the hunting crossbow she has in her hands.

Subject: I'm not dead yet

Yes, health issues. I'm a middle age over weight under active male eating bad foods and indulging in a wild party life. It had to catch up to me eventually.

Okay - I'm lying about the party life.

I'm great at denial but I need to see the doctor and do the tests and live with the results.

Subject: Okay III

Been busy lately and not with work. I have some health issues I need to address, I am taking a college course that isn't a breeze for me like the others and Will's B-day and Xmas are coming.

So, I will be moving the game shortly but I expect in two, possible three posts (by me) I will be stopping until after the holidays. You are about to meet the "sixth" memeber of your party (the Femme fatale) and I hope to have you outside the gates of the castle at the stop point.

Once the holidays are over we will start again on weekly.

Subject: planning ahead

I foresee the next Rocinante post will be a woof moment - many days rolling by like "woof". So I need to know what you will be doing or plan to do.

I need to check the travel times but I believe you have 2-3 days back to Regina where you'll eject your passengers in the shuttle and head back to the comet-mine. That trip will be 4-5 days but you'll at least have elbow room.

If you get bogged down with Rl, you can always send me a quick PM or email with your action and I will put them into the post. Can be as simple as "Kilgim will bash Dapple over the head and continue healing her".

Topic: Escape From Castle Rautenberg
Subject: moving in

Clements and the Sarge moved ahead quickly and as quietly as possible. As they approached they could see that there was a cabin up ahead, and the light came from an illuminated window to the left side of the entrance. It was a simple cabin, probably with a kitchen, one central room and a bedroom or two, with a shed on the side and supported above the ground on concrete blocks. The wood fire smell reached your nostrils.

McGuiness moving behind them looks for a place to best use his skills. A tree, a direct shot from the window present itself as the best opportunity. As the lead soldiers hit the ground and began to crawl, the captain and Doc moved forward. There had been no more noise from the cabin since the initial scream. The car was now visible and sure enough it looked like the car that Reid had described passing by before. It was parked a ways pass the house, but in the open air.

The silence was broken by the cruel and heartless laugh of a man. “*You may scream all you wish Fraulein. In fact I hope that you do, it will make the evening more interesting. But no one can hear you out here.”

OOC: Okay. Romo and Clements are 20 feet away from the front of the cabin. McGuiness is about 10 feet back and then Captain and Reid another 10 beyond that. I will do a rough map for you tomorrow for positioning.

Only Romo understand the male voice. Everyone else heard “waa waa waa Fraulein waa waa waa”

Subject: comm comm

This isn't D&D where you'd carry your equipment wherever you go. Sometimes you will step out without a gun, or a even your pants. So chances are that if you were originally stepping out to speak to the dock workers, you might not take a comm link. However, you do know Roc call number and could use any comm link really by changing the frequency and using the call number. Easy peesie. before you ask, there is a comm base station in Stacy's office.

Longer distance communication is done by waves and depending on how far would be face to face talking or messages back and forth. Again, all Stacy, the sheriff or a stranger would need is Roc's call signal which is broadcasted from your pulse signal beacon. It ain't a secret unless you remove the pulse beacon which is lllegal and will get you in worse trouble if they find you.

Rocinate's call signal is 4L4CR1T9.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: A head of schedule

OOC: I am playing with the timing here to make everyone on the same page.

Newhouse, Beylix, Rocinante, Cargo Bay, 2:15 pm, Day Three

Sam is moving to the catwalk when Willow steps in front of him and hauls him into a sitting position on a crate, "Sam Dash! Been making friends again I see. You aren't going anywhere until I look at you closely young man."

(assuming Sam is not going to reject a checkup with his fave doc)

"Hmm." Willow muses with Sam's face held gently but firmly between her hands, "Facial injuries always look worse than the seem, which I had more light..."

At that moment the flood lights come on and fill the cargo bay with illumination. "Thank you" Willow murmurs assuming someone did that for her. the lights go off again as suddenly as they came on.

“Gorramit,” the pilot grumbled figuring what happened, "Why don’cha go ahead an’ flip every ruttin’ switch ya can find… mebbe ye’ll get lucky and send us ta full burn right here on the docks and won’t none of us have ta worry bout what ta do next…”

At that moment Andrew Bowman returns to the cargo bay and sees Sam being attended by the lovely young lady. "Well… How are things going?” he asks, looking to Sam and Wyatt to fill him in.

(assuming some conversation here)

After a short while, Willow decides that Sam can wait for her tender ministrations. As Sam is heading for the catwalk he says to Wyatt, "Jus’ tell me we ain’t much longer fer this rock, Wyatt, Tell me we’re burnin’ Atmo an’ I’m shiny…”

"We are leaving this rock, Mr Dash." The voice of the banker speaks from a top the gangway. "Captain, I apologize for any inconvenience that I or my son have caused. My son is a big boy now, he will now start to learn what that means. So you may proceed as you wish at this point. I have some things I need to attend to and I need to lie down. Perhaps after tonight's meal, you will be available to talk Captain? Until then." and with that the small round banker turns and leaves. Trish looks down from the catwalk and shrugs before turning to go back to the kitchen.

Newhouse, Beylix Outside Rocinante, 2:20 pm, Day Three

As Wolf works the hose of the pump, he asks, "“Sounds good, by the way, the names Fenris Apollo, and yeah, I’m the mechanic on that Firefly. So if ya don’t mind my asking what’s the deal with your dockies?”

"Stacy Tam and they don't like the fact that I'm dock foreman. Biggs wanted the job but he doesn't have people skills if you know what I mean. So get got promoted and he tries to get his boys to scare me off, only I don't scare easily. So we do this dance for now. In a few weeks I'll move Biggs to a better position but far away from me, and things will get shiny."

The fill up done, Stacey walks with you over to Rocinante and with a practiced hand, releases the fuel cell cover and activated the hydrogen fuel sequence. The large trolley begins to move to latch onto the first fuel cell.

"Well it is all automated at this point. be about 30 minutes for the flush and another hour for the fill," She stretches playfully, "I'm due for a break, wanna come back to my office? It ain't fancy but it is private." She says with a definite suggestiveness in her voice.

OOC: Okay. Rocinante will be fuelled and ready in 90 minutes. You may post any actions, conversation or movements during that time (keep it PG Tann ). No one will be attacked, shot or beaten, and Stacy is not an assassin (for those of you who are twitchy in RL). Willow needs to be introduced to Bowman, you should bring each other up to speed on what has happened, someone should give the ham hock to Trish, the passengers are going to have a long meeting with Pearson about rules, probably in the biggest room they can find with a door and Sam needs to get off this rock fast.

Just a note - no one has introduced Andrew Bowman to Willow. Willow usually stops people in their tracks but in the hustle and bussle, she was missed.
