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.

That was not the approach I expected. Will have to think about how the gentlemen inside will react to someone knocking on the door of his secluded "love" shack.

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.

Topic: Castle Rautenberg Q n A
Subject: Dutch

I believe a lot of these saying are slangs using by the english during the Anglo Dutch Wars (early 1600's to late 1700) to mock their "enemy". In some parts of the world, pay like a roman means the same as going dutch. I am told that in Netherlands Amerikaans feest has the same meaning - Almerin can testify to whether that is true.

There is also a theory it comes from Dutch doors that are made from two equal parts but I don't find that to be believable.

Dutch Ovens however, are probably the single most versatile kitchen impliment around. Great for stovetop, oven and camping fires.

Topic: Escape From Castle Rautenberg
Subject: short but I don't want to run away with the characters

July 14th 1943, 8:30 pm to 2 am, Day Two of Mission

The team leaves the farm house rested and fed, but it still sticks in their minds about the oddness of the family disappearance. Why were they taken? And why the animals too? Who knew in this crazy mixed up war filled world anyway.

With Brutal at point, the team moved out back into the cover of the trees and forest, staying back from the roadway but close enough that they could follow it as well. It was risky, a set of headlights could easily illuminate them.

The terrain gets hilly and you are going up and down over hills and valleys. The light of the moon and stars are obscured by heavy clouds. Around midnight it begins to rain, around 1:00 you are very wet. You find a dirt roadway heading up to the east and not too far along the road is light. From that direction you can vaguely hear music playing.

And a woman's scream. A short scream, as if cut off by something.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: bouncy spiders

Her mother shook Sapphirine awake, “Come on dear. You have to get up. You have a message waiting....”

Gart’s hand flew quickly to block every single blow she rained upon him. “Stop that!” he ordered curtly, “You are telling me your every move like you sent a messenger.

Dapple stepped into the darkness of the alleyway. Nighthawk was there waiting for her in the far corner, where the buildings almost met. Looking up, he whispered, “Did you get my message.”


“These gems are not worth a third of what you are asking. I would be doing you charity by offering 10 each.”

Sapphirine eyed the overdressed, over perfumed and overweight merchant before her with cold eyes. She’d played this game before, but she wasn’t going to let him win this time.

“I think you’ll find my price is fair Sir. All the patrons of Lady Cynthia would agree.”

Colour ran out of the merchant’s face, “How did you...”

“How is your wife? Still doing poorly I’ve heard. I’m sure you wish to get to her bedside?”

“I don’t like what you are implying.”

“I don’t like being cheated. Pay 30, smile and let’s keep things quiet.”

He dropped a bag of coins on the table and snatched up the gems, “I think I got the message”

Iron Toes stood before her looking at his cloak in a three way mirror he keep in his personal chambers. The cloak was red and green with silver trim and a pale blue collar. “So? What do you think? Does it give the right message? Or is it too much?”

OOC: One spider coming from North, Two coming from East - single file)

Arien and Char moved quickly to defend their friend from further harm. Char moved to the north to face the spider coming from that direction. The huge arachnid leapt the distance between to pounce on Char with stinger extended but the ranger rolled quickly to the left, drawing swords and moving to strike as it lands. It is fast, very fast and kicks out at Char with one leg to hold him back while it moves back to the wall and up.
Arien takes a defensive stand so Kilgim can work his miracles with Dapple. The spiders are not close enough to attack but the still glittering threads that took Dapple down reel back like a serpent and strike out at the knight. He tries to move out of the way to cut the thread as they attack, but this time they come in from both sides of him. His shield blocks most of the thread but a few get through. There is no playfulness this time, or attempting to hold and lift, it is a powerful blow that makes Arien step back as his helm is knocked off and he is hit in the side of head. Blood pours freely from deep cuts in his face, head, scalp and shoulders. Ignoring the pain, Arien strikes at the threads pulling back as the flames cut through many.

Maximus is there with throwing daggers out. With the skill from hundreds of death matches, the gladiator throws two daggers at the leading spider from the east. The first sinks deep into the belly of the beast but the second is a perfect throw and bites hard into one of the eyes of the spider.

Kilgim reached the fallen form of Dapple. She was bleeding badly and looked like she had been slashed with so many thin razors. With a practiced hand, he takes a healing potion and opens Dapple’s mouth – pouring a third of the potion into the rogue. The results were quick and spoke to him of the wounds as the potion only stopped the bleeding, but she begins to cough in response. That is enough for him to give her the rest of the potion and prepare for a prayer.

Flynn moved beside the cleric and began to root around in Dapple’cloak to free Sunset from the hood. The small dragon immediately scratched him for the effort and fluttered into the air, only to come down again on Arien’s fallen helmet.

Valentine moves through the crafting of his spell and releases the magic towards the spider. The grease forms in front of the spider which is skittering around in the pain of the daggers. One leg slides and then the other and the spider slides face first into the ground, screeching in agony and pain.

The third spider that stands behind the first leaps high into the air, clearing the fallen spider and landing a short distance from Arien and Maximus as the fallen arachnid struggles to right itself and put paid to the ones that harmed it.

Dapple – Serious wounded but conscious now
Arien – Lightly wounded
Spider #1 – Seriously wounded (Nice Critical throw)
