"Eagleeye" Sarafina...

...is our "host."

If I'm not mistaken, the pregnant girl is one of his people.

my fault

I have not been giving this the attention I should.

I will post a sum up for everyone of where we are and how we will proceed. We are basically gaming at two points of time (afternoon and evening) which is throwing everyone off and the I pulled a "Barry Allen" and changed the time line.

The me sum it up.

Long time ago, came a man with a hat,
Flying 30 parsec with a sack on his back……



A summary of where we are in the verse and the game.

After two mission that had you helping the alliance a heck of a lot more than you bargained for, the crew of the Rocinante found themselves in a situation where work was not coming to them. Your old contacts didn’t trust you and the alliance didn’t need you anymore. You had regained Sam Dash as a pilot for the team but circumstances took away Jade and Willow for the ship. You have a new doctor from another ship – Stephanie Young, who has just joined you before this mission.

To Stephanie, the crew of Rocinante is very different from Destiny, her previous ship.

Captain Wyatt Sung – a quiet man who obviously cares deeply for his crew and ship. Lost his family in the war, he cares around many ghiosts and seems to be very superstitious

Sam Dash – The pilot is a bit crude, and tends to speak whatever is in his head. Him and the Captain go way back and you are told that Sam is only just back after a long absence.

Fenris (Wolf) Apollo – The mechanic of the ship is a big man, very competent in his job and is always working on the ship or working on his weights. He has a dark past involving prison time and things he doesn’t talk about much.

Asher (Ash, Kid) Talhone - A good looking young man with a gift for gunfighting. Another person who lost family due to the war, Asher is always willing to help out and has a very kind heart.

Patricia (Trish, Ma) Wilmont – The mother of the ship, this older lady was a famous movie star years ago but a botched operation left her scarred, partially paralysed in the face, and mute. Ma takes care of all the cooking and cleaning on the ship and mothers the entire crew.

The mission? Bees. Frozen bees actually. You were hired by Eagle -Eye Sarafina to transport cryogenically frozen bees to the planet of Whitefall. Eagle-Eye was an old friend of Fenris and you were more than happy to get the work and the money.

Whitefall is not what one calls “civilized” and there is a number of hoops to be leapt through on the account of the so called governor Patience. She runs the small moon with an iron fist, always looking for a way to make a platinum. You avoided the spaceport and landed on Sarafina’s farmland. Once to bees were moved to a nearby barn, you were welcome to a lunch with all of Sarafina’s staff. After the lunch was over, the head of the household (Mrs. Wilson) asked Stephanie to examine some of the staff for medical issues, offering to pay for the services. Eagle asked Fenris to join him on the far end of the farm to help with putting in some fences posts.

Fenris and Eagle go out to put in fence posts, catch up and enjoy each other’s company. There they meet a hired gun named Duncan who Eagle is familiar with, and he is asking about a lost (escaped) indentured servant (a girl). Eagle tells Duncan that he has no idea where the girl is and there some word exchanged but Duncan and his posse leave, promising to let Patience know that Eagle is not cooperating.

Mrs Wilson had Stephanie answering a lot of questions and the octor felt that she was being assessed for something. Sure enough, turns out that Mrs. Wilson had taken in a young lady on the run from Patience who happened to be pregnant. Patience made use of indentured servants so by the lady, this girl (and the baby) were her property,

(This is where we are in the story with Stephanie calling Wyatt on the Comm. Unless anyone objects, I will assume that Wyatt, Sam, Asher and Ma are on Rocinante when the call comes in to the Captain. Fenris is way out on the other end of the farm with Eagle-Eye at that time. We need to close the gap in time to connect up the actions of the doctor to the time of heading to the bar outlined below. So I want to play this out because how it ends will effect whether Stephanie is with you at the bar or back on the ship with Chloe)

In the evening, Wyatt, Asher, Sam, and Fenris head out with Eagle Eye to a bar called the slaughterhouse in hope to find some work for the ship. You have a lead on a Mr. Potter who is looking for a ship to get him and some passengers off planet. Fenris is approached about fighting some farmhand that Patience has who seems unbeatable. Fenris, wanting to check out the competition, heads out to the Honeydew bar. Asher meets a pretty girl on a mission to get herself drunk and Potter has made the first move by talking to Sam.

(Where we are in the evening part of the story)

Ok.

I’ll post an answer to Wyatt in regards to what’s happening. I was mistaken and it isn’t one of Serafina’s. I will clarify in my post. I might not have it up till tomorrow, this evening is hectic.

Time line fill.....

Ok, for a little story tweaking to get us back to the bar.

All of the crew accept Steph are back on the Roc.

At dusk Ash will take the mule and go pickup Steph and Chloe.
Ash hides Chloe under a tarp in the back.

Although not the usual Ma comes along toting her pink shotgun.

She'll sit in the back by the tarp in case we get stopped. If anyone tries to move the trap she'll let them see just smidgen of her face and lot of the shotgun. That'll scare any sane person enough to back off. Ash will tell them Ma don't let folks mess with stuff.

Once back to the Roc Steph and Ma take Chloe to sick bay. The crew can climb in the mule, go pick up Eagle Eye and head to town as planned.

Story back on track.....

If that sound fine to everyone I'll work a post from where the Capt'n spoke to Ash in the cargo bay.

Yes that works

That works well (Odyssey suggestion) because you can do it all and get it done before Wolf and Eagle get back from the fence building. I can even have Mrs Wilson run interference.

So let’s assume that is the plan and we can wrap it up this weekend and get the story running again.

for the record

Mrs. Wilson will draw the two men on bee duty away with story of needing some heavy lifting and some promissory chocolate chip cookies as a reward. The men will claim they have to stay be will bow to Mrs. Wilson's request on the basis it will be a short time and Mrs. Wilson will watch the bees.

Nothing will go wrong with the movement of Chloe unless you do something really silly.

You will get her on board and hidden away before the men return and just before Wolf and Eagle-Eye return from the fence job.

I will assume you will tell Wolf what is going on. He is not likely to break confidence.

So you will go to the bar knowing about Chloe in the infirmary. Stephanie, I assume will not go to the bar and examine Chloe more carefully.
