Tess/Celeste

I actually am enjoying the dynamic that is evolving between Tess and Angela. Tess says exactly what she's thinking and it won't always be charitable...so I'm sure the words "head case" aren't too far off in our future

It's early in the game to be apparent, but Angela is pre-disposed to look to Grace and Jon for orders (that must be followed)...and anyone else's suggestions will be taken at face value. Grace because Matthew "gave" Angela to her (says so in her notebook) and Jon because he is the captain, and Angela's conditioning was military based. Messed up, I know, but she's a hoot at parties, hehe.

So, (as I am drafting a post after working something out with MMV) Angela will be touched by Tess' concern, but is too anxious about the job to not speak with Grace.

Hope This Clerifies ...........

Sorry I also misunderstood and left out Angela, but it does make good RP. Our crew/family relationship leads to assumptions that can get misread. Jon's dealings with Angela are still evolving and I say that it is still far from candid. Jon feels the need to be careful with his words. Now that is still all in my head as the RP is just starting.

As for candid discussion, I feel that Grace and Tess both know they can bowl over Jon at times. They know his tendency to mix big brother with ship's captain so I think they keep him on his toes AND heels. I'd think they also keep him informed, Grace with how she see Angela develop and Tess as overall scheme of things. Tess is second in command.

Celeste had said before that we could do a co-post between Jon and Tess in the exercise room so that is why I've set that up. More RP to build Jon's and Tess's characters and to get information out. There is a bond between Jon and Tess that may or may not be from a family link that they don't know about, but it is closer than old war buddies.

I'd hope MMV puts in her post something to Jon about Angela's fear she "disobeyed" so he can help steady her. I'd think we end having a little sit down with Jon, Grace and Angela to "Clear the Air". She could stop by the exercise room or catch him after he returns to his room. I'd think she just might walk in on him as he is preparing to show and not notice he is half dressed or less. I might think she treats him as gender neutral so it doesn't phase her even if he has to jump to grab a towel. If we should work on that in PM as group post I'd be happy to do that.

If JC needs some one on one time with Jon we can work that in too. That might come after his general sweep of the rooms and he wants to clarify things with Jon.

Catie is still new, Jon only had the few minutes in the sick bay to base his feelings and suspicions about her. Grace and Tess's input will help him. Jon just doesn't know what to do with her yet, where to assign her and what to expect from her. Steph isn't talking to him so he's running on faith.

Jon's time in the exercise room is where he will piece events together more. I am planning a pre-liftoff crew meeting where the issues of this odd pick up will be discussed, with all even if we have individual talks before that, which I hope also get posted. Jon will be leery of the pickup and trip because of the wine incident.

I hope this helps so you get a feel of how I'm playing Jon.

supplies, port fees and the like

You do not have to play out buying supplies and paying the port fees. Actually the port fees have to be paid upfront anyway.

Filing passenger manifests and destinations is required but the reason so much criminal activity happens in Eavesdown is that the port doesn't pay close attention to the rules and all the bosses pay the workers well to keep it that way. As Badger would say - free enterprise is never free.

I love the interaction that is happening so far. Please keep it going over the holidays.

Devil Is In The Details......

The little stuff doesn't have to be exact but it's the routine that keep things going and making sense of things.

I would have thought that it would be a docking fee to land and then a port fee for length of stay. Failure to pay can cause you to loose your boat. That could also lead to stealing your boat and sneaking out.

I figured we would have to have some kind of papers that would be checked if we are stopped by the Feds. Even if it were done over the Coretex, which can be hacked, it leaves your trail.

Like I said, we have 5 hours of interplay that can have some real fun RP before we leave and the unknown encounter starts.

Future collaborations and holiday break

I believe a future collab between myself and Vanadia is in order. Please feel free to have Angela be as much of a headcase as you wish . I will leave it all up to your interpertation. Let's just say Tess will be prepared for a little 'dancing'.

I am happy to rp this out if anyone is confused by Tess's suggestion about waking Angela up in the morning.

I didn't mean to ignore Catie's question; Angela's distressed state needed to be addressed first. I can imagine that the shopping trip into town will leave Tess's mouth watering if Catie begins to start describing recipes.

Ody and I have already discussed a one on one. If it doesn't happen before we take off, I'm sure it will go down on our way to the cruise.

I will be pretty absent this next week for the holidays. I will probably have internet access, but I have no idea if I will have time to post.

Market

If you do play out the getting if supplies, then Catie can play out the ability to negotiate and bargain.

Bingo.................

That would go so well to show Catie just wow um by wheeling and dealing. That leads to where her character needs to go.

I like it!!!

Of course that's just how I planned it.

nice stuff

Some good character development and build up. I would like to post what JC and Grace find out in their respective searches for info soon. Maybe throw in the market scene if you'd like.

Well...

Hoping Celeste returns soon. However, it sounds like the gathering of groceries will definitely take place, so I could make a post under that assumption.

Also, collectively, do we know where we could go to get groceries from where we're docked?

Eavesdown

There would be a "open air" type of market available as well as a few shops and the like to buy from. Mostly protein paste and flavouring to make the protein paste taste like ... whatever you want it to be.

Fresh produce, meat or anything like that will be expensive and of a dubious nature. Ground Chuck could mean that the dogs/cats/rodents were all named Chuck. Still you might be able to wrangle some goodies.

I will roll some counter kills rolls for you when I get home and send you the basic results so you can post around them.

I do want to get things moving.

Emergence

So my holiday trip ended up being a week longer than anticipated. What was anticipated was the lack of internet access. I had it once for about fifteen minutes, which was liberating, but a bit of a shock at first for an interwebs junkie like myself.

I also slept for two days after coming back.

Upon being completely rested, refreshed, and back into the work grind, I am ready for some gaming!

Shopping trip results

I thought I'd go ahead and post the shopping trip results all in one post. Afraid I don't include much interaction with Tess and/or Grace but I didn't want to assume very much or end up making the post into a sort of chain of 'what ifs' with regards to character reactions. Also, Catie gets really focused when she's on a mission, so to speak

NPC interaction are also tentative, so please let me know if you have any problems or suggestions with how I portrayed any of the shopkeepers Al. I was aiming for them to be mostly generic, but still kind of relatable as a cashier or merchant you meet at a RL market.

Feel free to inject any interaction during the shopping trip as well. The post I made is basically compiling all of the marketing results together, but things can still happen in between. I'll just backpost as needed

Crew Meeting.....

I'm going to try and get a post up tonight that will get the meeting started. A bit RP and info in character will get us set to leave. "Twichy" just doesn't do this situation justice.

Are there plans to tell about Catie's shopping by anyone else or should I just have Jon hear about it through the grape vine?

shopping

I am under the assumption that Tess and Angela went with Catie to the market while JC made calls, Grace hacked the media and Jon pumped the iron.

A meeting is good so everyone can share the information.

Sorry if I am making you twitchy. This is just a simple job right?
