Overlord of Thafo (Transcript)

((Transcript is currently raw will be cleaned and ooc comments removed ectera.))

[14:33] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): enters the Unitrade Net Lounge with a VR helmet to go over the latest report on a recovered hauler. Presses a button in the VR to access Unitrade general comms. "Trustee Jack Cloudborn here' fellow spacers we've got some crated with galactic postage stamps worth a 100,000 credits to be delivered to the Araxes Starport. This is a high security operation and whomever moves it' needs at least one escort. This kind of job does not come up too often. The recipient in Araxes is a bunch of numbers and unknown. Is anyone feeling spry?"
[23:11] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): what is to be expected by whomever takes the job
[23:17] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Ten ways to pluto and my granny's uncle its a trap. Whoever goes in... has to be ready for that trap and suspecting whomever laid that trap to have backup plans the rest of the way.
[23:24] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): *rolls eyes* not exactly what I was looking for but fine plan for the worst basically
[23:28] Knaster leans forward swiping his hand over the holographic screen to send a message out in response to the requested transport " Greetings Unitrade .Jack ..and Raisa.." he stops and clears his voice in a loud way unaware he is still sending " This is cap. Knaster commander of the Ubara Star port for trades and cargo shipment..I offer to take on that order...seems Im able to squeeze it into our already tight schedule " he adds lying simce all transports has been down for long time and he remembers the cobweb he noticed last time he checked the cargo ship " If anyone else handles the shipment ..I can still offer my assistance ...for a few procent of whats offered " he grins as he let go of the send button on the screen and waits for an answer by anyone out there
[23:34] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): It is what is. Dont want anyone going in unprepared and would rather folk have no problem and complain about that. Roger that Cap. Kaster of Ubara Station. For all's fair sake will hold our breaths five minutes and pencil you in on the job. Whomever goes should have an escort ship while the first sends crew aboard to pickup the cargo out the wreck. Definitely a job you'll want a buddy on.
[23:35] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((uses a bit of scifi magic to note a correction to knaster's name above. sorry about that.))
[23:38] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): knaster you haven't hauled in a while you sure your ships are still functional
[23:41] Knaster sighs not really sure what he got himself into but in desperate need of credit to buy supplies and water takes a moment with his hand fiddling the handle of his long time friend Paladin, his gun , before responding " Great ..then Ill just wait for the coordinates and ..some measurement of the parcel...need to know what size of the vessel I need to use " he stops for a moment then reply on Raisa whos voice he remembers from the other day " Im sure Ill be okay ....just need to check the energy level and steering ..seemed a bit jammed last time ....How good are you with a gun Raisa..I was thinking if you and I should do this together ? "
[23:48] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): knaster im a nvx unit im pretty sure I could out shoot you
[23:49] Knaster takes the multi use holo screen and strolls of down to the hangar , waits for the hall to be fully pressured and filled with air before he enters . Not being much of a technological mastermind or even somewhat skilled in that matter walks up to one of the smaller ships and just gives the landing gears a sturdy kick , runs his hand over the screen to send another message to Raisa " Wonderful...then we just need to convince you to point that shooter in some other direction " chuckles " Ive checked the ships ..they are all top notch and in the best of shape ..trust me " he cross his other hands fingers behind his back as he sends the message
[23:52] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): *rolls eyes* I was planning on coming along anyways im a ship mechanic as well silly
[23:55] Knaster: " Awesome ...then its a deal ..and Ill even give you a fair amount of 10 % of the total fee ..I have all the expensives and still paying morgage on the station ..and my birthday is coming up soon ...and to you ..it might just be nothing more then a walk in the park ..if we´re lucky " he rambles on as he starts haggling . Not really keen to share a hole lot of the payment
[23:55] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Sends Kanster the coordinates. It's not too far away from the solar system Araxes is located in. "Allright coords passed your way Cap. Suggest you and Rasia rendevous on a Xi vector a long breath off the worlds shadow. "
[00:00] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): right
[00:02] Knaster looks to the screen receiving the coordinates , pulls them down in the corner to save and pulling the huge star map out and press search as he fills in the coordinates on the map " Roger that ..I have the coordinates and ..pretty good idea of where that might be ...Rendewous on Xi vector ..alright " . He shots down the screen and shoves it in under his shirt to keep it safe and out or reach from any long fingered creature ever they are up against
[00:08] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): As Knaster and Rasia set to meetup he takes a deep breath and a step back. Flagging all other comms from anyone other then them to be superceded. "Good luck you two' have a good pay day."
[00:08] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): nods
[00:10] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): puts away the embryo injector
[00:20] Knaster climbs into one of the smaller ships ..the one he knows is working somewhat properly and starts up the engine and leans back waiting for the hangar to be emptied of the breathing air and moves to the switch preparing to open up the big hatch of the hangar. With a grin he maneuvers the ship out of the hangar and heading for the Xi point to meet with Raisa and to begin his newly assigned mission to transport stamps of all the things . He laughs hard as he turns light and push the warp speed button that takes him several lightyear away and heading for the meeting pont
[00:30] Knaster: (( trying again ))
[00:30] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): As Knastr arrives at the rendevous point his datalink to the Unitrade net cyces on a screen of the mission data. In this it is clearly shown that there is one crate on the target vessel with several large square ceramic like plate stamps fixed to its surface. Galactic Postage Stamps are expensive and any goods shipped with them are ensured delivery in even the most hostile conditions or situations Such as the case now.
[00:37] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia is sitting on the crate in her temjin gear
[00:40] Knaster jumps through space , got a bit of course a few light years , but quickly adjusted and soon enough enters space around their meeting point . As he apraoch he switch on the the com advice and call out in his thundering voice " This Knaster of Ubara star port on star shuttle sierra delta 5 requesting to aproach your vessel and to come aboard ...over " he smiles eyeing out through the shield seeing how the glowing protective shield is turnig into a huge ship instead
[00:43] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): took ya long enough
[00:43] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Aboard the Newluck crew woman Heidi Port points out that Rasia has added her image sitting on the crate shown on the datalink on Knaster's Terminal. Nemo the ship's AI lowers the volume and replays the comm from Knaster. Trustee Cloudborn takes another deep breath and welcomes Knaster aboard by opening the rear hold and with a few quick words. Then turning to Rasia he raises an eyebrow. "What day of the week is it Rasia."
[00:43] Knaster steps out of the ship with a wide grin " I hope I didnt hit you in the eye Raisa " laughs " I see you are all geared up ..good "
[00:44] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): should be wednsday and curry day for the fleetgirls
[00:47] Knaster looks for Jack but unabnle to see him he howls in a loud voice " Greetings Jack " then turns to Raisa , his hand moving to his belly , he cant remember he had a good stew but perhaps after this mission he could have all he want " Do you have the coord as well Raisa..I think I know of this place ..but its always better to be two ..you watch my back and I watch your..well tail " laughs
[00:49] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Jack speaks with Heidi about the other Unitrade Trustrees as Rasia and Cap. Knaster prepare to disembark. Heidi makes some attempt to say hello to Knaster and ends up saying Cap. Rasia I'm married crew woman. This causes Jack to smile and request she attempt speaking after she's seen her husband.
[00:49] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): pfff yeah i know the spot
[00:52] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): On Newluck ship comms Jack replys. "Roger that' I'm still hard at work writing help files on the Unitrade Net. You too have fun." He pauses a moment then adds. "Heidi says hi too.."
[00:54] Knaster looks to the woman Heidi giving her a glare just two seconds on the right side of awkward and tips his head in a slight nod as a greeting motion , turns to Jack with his hand raised is a good bye and turns to Raisa " So ..are you ready ....Ill head out and wait for you "
[00:58] Knaster climbs into his ship and in a swift move he is up and out of the rear of Newluck , reaching for the panel and calling in " This is cp Kanster of Ubara Start port Sierra Delt 5 on its way to take of ..I wish you a good day Newluck " he leans back and sets his speed to max heading for the pick up spot
[01:01] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): After the two head off the datalink to Unitrade display more information on the target vessel. Knasters sensors may confirm that its in a asteroid field and the ship was likely run afoul and sought cover. Only well it takes quite a pilot to pull that off. Instead sensors report the ship to be in four pieces and the goods are located deeper field. Not too difficult for a smaller ship to handle and theres enough of a room open to the void to land in. Nothing appears on radar as active ships in the region.
[01:04] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The Newluck's AI Nemo responds as if the goodbye as directed at him. "Safe journeys Cap. Knaster."
[01:12] Knaster well seated in his cargo shuttle takes a look on the screen radar unable to see any followers , Not being all that well mannered but still cant help to think that just maybe he should have asked Raisa if she wanted to go in his ship, but to him it just seemed natural to use two ships: He growls in low deep sound and paus it no more attention as he look ahead and a big wall of asteroids are right in his way " I knew this wasnt goin to be easy " he mutters for himself as he starts to turn in all kinds of directions to avoid the hard rock like pieces running through the deep space as if they were controlled by something
[01:28] Knaster finally manage to ru8n his ship through the most thick parts of asteroids and notice a particual one with an antenna on it " Now that weird " he grunts with narrowed eyes, not takin to keen on what he see. Wondering why the radar didnt give him info of that thing and raise his foot up and gives the panel a light kick he watch it glitch and spark a bit before giving him a clear screen and back to normal " Thats better " he grins in his usual way talking to himself when in his ship. Now even a station appears on the screen and he goes in closer reaching for the panel to call in he approaching " This is Cap Knaster of the Ubara Star Port coming in with Sierra Dellt 5 coming in low and requesting permission to moor ..over " he increase the volume a bit and leans back waiting for a response from the station . With skilled hands he runs through the asteroid field slowly getting closer and a bit on the nervous side.since there is no answer from the big station . He decides to move in closer and take a look
[01:29] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): As Cap. Knaster passes thru the outer edge of the field towards the ships wreckage he passes thru a well hidden jamming barrier. The flash and shine of dozens of men cutting up another section of the ships hull come into view. Even at a quick glance it can be seen that they are salvaging it into neat stackable plates they can easily throw onto a ship somewhere. Yet where that ship is.. is unknown. For the moment this crew pays him no attention. His sensors may be able to pickup eight extremely small converted life pods... which have been refitted into rather clever though likely not that powerful attack craft. Each is only about 7ft x 4ft x 5ft and sports a package of thrusters not capable of long distance travel anywhere. Anyone fighting in these things would have to crank their neck uncomfortably thru a small veiwing plate at the font. Of note however each of these craft looks fitted with towing cables and hook for assisting the salvage crews.
[01:35] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia watched from her window as she got changed into civilan wear
[01:38] Knaster: (8 welcome back ))
[01:39] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): no need to pose a threat on station right she comments comming into the cockpit
[01:44] Knaster: (( brb))
[01:52] Knaster: (( b))
[02:00] Knaster tries to stay focused on his course but a few glances to the sides gives him a fair idea of whats happening around , noticing all the men and the crafts showing like small glitches on the screen , he proceed with caution , a slight nod in agreement to Raisa "Oh Im no threat ..heck this ship isn't even armed properly yet ...Now lets see if we can get some info around here somewhere ..some clue of some sort would be helpful " he adds turning his attention back to the ship ans steering it through all the obsticles and men working around them . Not being totally against casualties as a rule as long as it dont cost him anything , and running down a worker here could be more then costly " LEst get more up a bit higher to get a better view Raisa " he simply puts it as he accelerate upwards
[02:03] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): *nods* as she watches "the strike have 2 small caliber autocannons like and prolly carry about a thousand rounds per cannon when fully loaded not far off from a shiva really
[02:06] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Three of the small converted and armed life pods come into view tugging another section of the hull out of the denser area of the asteriod field. Only the small square front port of their craft give view to their faces. What can be glanced there isn't pretty.. They seem to be piloted by children of some sort and either not entirely human or grown up next to some manner of highly toxic energy sources thats caused some nasty boils and boils on those boils to fester beyond description. These though armed neither challenge nor pay any attention to Cap. Knaster and Rasia as their ship passes.
[02:08] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): *smirks* however armor is not good on em and if shield its pretty weak prolly
[02:11] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): At a higher alt what had a first looked like a larger asteroid is not. Its expected mass by computer calcuations indicate that its been constructed out of smaller asteroids to form a sort of mish mash and irregular sphere sheltering a inner sanctum. Inside the lights of a settlement can be seen... and the stacks of wreckage the work crew had been making would exactly fit the opening into this inner sanctum.
[02:12] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): *scans the construct* hmm interesting
[02:16] Knaster with raised brow and of instinct throws his head down under the steering panel as soon as he notice the crafts, one glance to the radar and screen another to Raisa before heaving himself up to upright position with an embarrassed look " Where did they come from ...Its not that Im scared ..just cautious " he adds with an uncertain look. Watching them the small crafts fly all over and knowing they would be toast in a few seconds he is glad they dont seem to pay any attention to his ship . Captain Knaster now is more then certain that the wrecked ship is not only here ..but the package must be found here as well, although it might need a bit of manipulation and persuasion to get it ...and with the lack of money and true armor he need to find someone or something to get to the package and return it to Jack Cloudborn preferbly in one piece ..and not get killed when doing it
[02:16] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Scans of the construct reveal a population of ought to be dead six times over' from bad everything ten times over. The count excluding a farm of rats and what any human would call inedible bugs' is at 3,945 inhabitants. Evidence also reveals that this colonies hibernation bed technology has failed in the last year and their fuel and power resources are low.
[02:18] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia points to an abondoned craft where the pilot had died at the controls thean shifts to a childlike form "can we grab that craft and possibly refuel it here
[02:20] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): or atlest make it functional
[02:21] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Additionally these people are a human sub-species of unknown origin. Rasia may know from Old One Archives some possible clue to another speices which mated with humans in the distant past. The abandoned craft Rasia points to is a mid sized mining ship capable of navigating the asteroid field though clearly no where close to brand new. Its crew must be elsewhere at the settlement or part of the work crew.
[02:22] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): "i ment the converted pod craft not quite made it to the docking bay"
[02:25] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): poor boy
[02:26] Knaster: nods to Raisa " Yeah you take care of that ..I will go see if there is anyone around that I can talk to " starts strolling around the area pulling up his mall hand held screen doing a reading of the area and trying to figure out the way they talk here
[02:26] Knaster: *small
[02:30] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): nods as she evas out to the pod "sorry about this" eases the mutated body out of the pod then looks at the controls and smiles "hey this isnct to different from a sonic diver in skygirls" climbs in and heads off to recover the package
[02:34] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Inside the settlement. Knaster discovers that there are few to no full grown adults. Those that speak have strange accents yet speak galactic common which is mostly understandable. Why no one seems to speak or even notice Knaster or Rasia appears to be how all the children are reacting to the adults. One of the adults does a double take on seeing Knaster. A well bearded thin man whom seems to have braided nostril hair. "You there' eh yeah you there!! who aru and what are you doing here!!" He brandishes what looks like might be a weapon but looks more like a small eating fork. "U come here and tell me where you come from"
[02:35] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia easily navigates the wreakage and secures the package and slips away without incident
[02:37] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The flight from the settlement to the wreckage noted on the mission logs is not far and likely Rasia makes it look fairly epic. Once there it can be clearly seen that the local boil covered folk have already cleared most of the ship yet the instructions on the mission clearly tell well the package is hidden out of sight.
[02:38] Knaster watch Raisa climb into the vessel and with a deep growling realize what she just said , hes been had big time , from what he can tell at least so far . With a grumpy look and kicking pebble and rocks everywhere , even aiming at some creatures just happen to pass by leans up as he hears a voice calling out to him . Heaving his broad shoulders and spits to the side taking a good look at the man in an examining way " Greetings ..I am the well known and far traveled ..the one who seeks and finds..Im sure you must have heard of me ..But I do understand your question , which wouldnt bve a question if there were no answer , just as a answer wouldnt be an answer witjout a questiopn ..but more of a styatement ..now is there anything else I can help you with ..cant you see Im busy ..I looking for my package " he rants on and on to confuse the man a bit until he have a clear idea of his intention
[02:40] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): on radio rasia could be hear giggling a little as she was enjoying the flight
[02:42] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The old thin man brandishes the fork is asked a question by another child covered in boils and distracted can't give Knaster much more of a problem. There are several computer terminals in the general vincinity around Knaster. Some rooms filled with things and the boil children scurrying about on random tasks. One carries a plate happily with a rats head on it... like it was his very special best day.
[02:44] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia does a roll as she dodged a couple of roids "i have only one minor problem the powercell shielding is no good"
[02:48] Knaster frowns for the man and for Raisa taking of like that , but at least it was a lesson learnd he says to himself , if only he could figure out what the lesson was .He waves the man of in a pompous manner doing his best to look all busy and important, he eyes around the area with keen eyes and of experience it doens take hiom long to find the computers and pulling his small hand held reading device and have it hooked up with the terminal with a lot of grunting and sighing all to show he wants to be left alone like all important creatures act in entire universe and soon enough he has access to the entire data base and downloading . You van never have to much info " he chuckles
[02:49] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia pulls into the cargo as another asks who she is "eh im r r rasia"
[02:50] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): A narrow dark corridor can be glimpsed leading to a large open space. In that distance there seem to some large alternately lit statues of strange design. Bits of the architecture start becoming apparent. Much seems to be covered in patches and reused or salvaged from several other sources. Yet underneath it all seems to be the core walls of a building that would have perhaps once been built on a planet not in space surrounded by an asteroid field. Its this which Knaster soon gleans from investigating the computers. There was a war here. This small section of the settlement is a peice of that world which is no longer. Likely there would be more details on the download.
[02:55] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): man: where you learn to flily like that "uh uh anime?"
[02:58] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): A child smiles up at Rasia and tries to say her name. It comes out more like ratchet in the kids strange accent. The boy or girl then offers Rasia a necklace of rat tails. Saying its some day or another. Then stands around expecting a gift. A crowd of the boil children soon start to crowd around her. A few adults in the back. Their eyes.. all their eyes if you really really look seem to bulge and contract strangely... almost hypnotically. It's worse with the children. As if their smiles were somehow darker and more menacing. A few of the nearer children to Rasia makes a mock rat scratch motion toward her and speaks to a child nearby.
[02:59] Knaster quickly shoves the devices back in under his shirt with a pleased grin spread on his face, still un noticeable for the mask he is wearing as a precaution to lack of air or any toxic floating liquids or gas. He walks around a bit more, keeping a safe distance from the workers, safe in that matter they wouldnt greet him cause he is to far and still close enough to not look odd and malplace. His feet stepping and gravels and bits and pieces and scrap from the shattered buildings and even parts of crafts being scatttered all over. A small shiny stone draws his attention and he leans down to pick it up only to soon realize its a not a stone but a tooth . He toss it over his shoulder and his eyes are drawn to some narrow walkway and he with a small hesitation heads towards it , the whole time casting an eye over his shoulder just to be on the safe side. Now that Raisa took of and certainly aimning to get the package all by herself and claim the fee for it he must find some other way to make a few credits out
[03:01] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): smirks and then points to a large window and tell them to watch "i don't have anything i can give but I can put on a hell of a show that do?"
[03:03] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Whatever thought or plans the children and the adults may have had vanish at the notion of a show. They in a very ill coughing and muted way cheer her on.
[03:06] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): If Knasters ship has proximity alarms they go off as several adults outside the settlement take an interest. As Knaster heads down the narrow walkway he emerges into a large open space with dead fossiled trees and grass that shatters into dust as his feet falls upon it. A groaning waiil of a thing in pain can be heard at the center of the space. While the walls seem to be covered in wire or vines and strange equpment.
[03:07] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): smiles and climbs into the pod craft and zips out and puts on one hell of a show out side with loops and and all manner of stunts her aim to inspire
[03:08] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The groaning wail is coming from a sunken portion of the floor and there seems to be a stone box covered with intricate carving and details. A small crowd of children can be spotted standing at the edge of the entryway waiting to see what Knaster might do.
[03:13] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Strangely the crowd watches Rasia only a short while. A scan or glance below would reveal the movement of some sort of gelatinous creature moving about below where the crowd had been. While the lights below and in the area Knaster occupies dim then go out abrupty and dont come back on. The power source in the pod craft seems to be sudddenly falling off dramaticaly. As if some force or entity was draining it... wanting and end to the show... and likely of any not in their power or control.
[03:14] Knaster filled with the voices of agony , his hand reacjing into his pocket and pulling some old bullet caps and shoves them into his ear as he used to in his days as a mercenary . Noticing the box he approach it and with a swift move pulls a dagger and use it to scrape it on the surface . Curious about it buit wellaware that the download must be worth something jhe struggle beyween the stone and the data . He leans down and tries to lift it using his thick fingers to dig in under to get a grip , but itrs too heavy . He sighs and decides to better head back to the ship but while doin so he put in the coordnates of the stone on his devicea and entesr hiss ship to head back to Newluck
[03:16] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The exits to the large open space knaster had been in close shut with a shift and smell in the air.
[03:17] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia smirks and shifts powersource to one she installed a few moment before take offand lands easily
[03:19] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): In the dimming light of the pod in which Rasia rides more gelatinous creatures can seen clustered in the cracks of the spherical asteroid surrounding the settlement.. Their bodies close off all the exits. Including the large main one Knaster and Rasia had entered by in his ship.
[03:20] Knaster increasing the power of his vessel and brushing his thick cape of a bit as he steers through the galaxy , a glance to the floor and a grumpy gnarling muttering " I know who will have to clean that up if she dont share the delivery fee with me " . His hand moves inside his shirt fiddling with the hand held device and thinking of the data he downloaded, a small grin is playing in the corner of his mouth " This is my bonus " he says to himself again talking to himself as usual when he is in his ship
[03:23] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia tossed to origional powersource knowing it had been rigged as the pod roared to life one more "hehe nice try overlord"
[03:28] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The inquiring adults had slunk off when Knaster approached his ship. Some old trap in the room which he had been in.. delayed by too many years of neglect. A thrumming sound fills the interior... powerfully vibrating at flesh in such a way that would cause skin to boil. Powerfull telepathic thoughts breathing into life almost summoned though already here. It is in this thrumming that the overlord breathes and speaks... and seeks to overwrite Rasia's mind and body to the shape and form of the settlers below.
[03:30] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia: laughs at him thats where you failed overlord im a gynoid and a combat one at that
[03:36] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The overlord mind unable to dominate her flesh or mind suddenly discovers a moment of impotence and remembers anger as a emotion. The thousands of gelatinous bodies which comprise it's flesh surge towards the pod she inhabits... as the overlords mind shatters into a billion peices knowing only one desire. That to deystroy... to crush... to end rasia's existence.
[03:38] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): rasia: heh get wrecked *blast throug them like paper*
[03:40] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): tch blitz is a bad tactic on a single target
[03:41] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Every blast Rasia fires becomes absorbed like the powercells from the pod... and having some time and a thousand variations to test... the gelatinious forms attempt to draw the energy out of her gynoid body. Kinetic and energy blasts they absorb like food.. indeed it was the overlords flesh which had caused the crash of the ship which carried the package currently in her possesion.
[03:45] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): focuses and psicickly emps the mass
[03:48] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): knaster get moving please you have the package
[03:50] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The mass are stunned and writhe around her. It is unknown how long they may be stunned as their ability to still move somewhat in pain denotes possible recovery.
[03:52] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): punches it and gets ahead of them heading for an opening
[03:56] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The original opening they had entered in Knaster ship is clear as all the gelatinous forms has swarmed around her position. Leaving also open the cracks between the boulder which formed the rough circular shape of the inner sanctum. Rasia has no problem exiting. Given her piloting ability of the pod it does not take much time to exit the asteroid field entirely.. and the overlords flesh seems unable to follow. It is somehow tied to the asteroids.




[04:17] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): newluck come in knaster has the package I stowed it on tge vessel before I put on a show for some kids he made it out but i got a glob chasing my tail and might not make it with my pod fighter
[04:23] Knaster: (( back))
[04:23] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): ((wb))
[04:24] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Jack asks Nemo to tie in Rasia's comm frequency and Knasters so they all can hear each other. "Trustee Cloudborn here on the Newluck. Roger that Rasia... smart move. So traps come in globs and the trap is sprung... is the package in the clear? Knaster whats your situation?"
[04:25] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): package is clear but im fucked my pod is barely functioning and knaster is clear to het the hell out
[04:28] Knaster on his way back to Newluck steering through the asteroid field spipe the csreen on the panel and respond " Hang on a bit ..darn asteroids " stops and some noice with a squealing is heard through the air " ..darn asteroids....that will cost me some paintjob ..YEs ..Knaster here on Sierra Delta 5 heading towards you Jack....and sorry Raisa ..thought you hustled me big time ..you are a smart person " chuckles and continues " No worries Raisa ..Im tunring this vessel around and heading back to come get you ..uyou just make sure there is a clear spot to land on ..and be quick back on the ship ...please " he adds with a laughter all glad they have made it so far
[04:29] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): negative large reaction out past the field and i got an angry blob chasing me
[04:32] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Stay bright and shiny' Rasia' how much time you got left till you are short and dimming fast?" He pauses waiting for her reply getting the Newluck underway to assist. "I hear you Sierra Delta 5... The Newluck is underway at top speed ." In the background Heidi can be heard asking glob blob? Then the comm from the newluck closes.
[04:34] Knaster paying no attention to her negative turns around his ship and increase his speed to the max . With his fist raised to the sky and clenched into a fist the sign of a hammer , the sign of Thor he is determined to get back and help Raisa even if thats the last thing he ever do he calls he back " Sorry ..didnt copy that ..but you just hang in there ..Im there in a flash ...and Cloudborn ..We will surround them " laughs hard
[04:35] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): A short time later Jack reopens the comm between them all. "Rasia you got any readings on the blob so the Newluck can scan for it on your tail?"
[04:38] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): negative on both hold on your kidding me as a scream is heard over the radio "get away fom master damn you" *eyes widen* peggy?
[04:47] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Aboard the Newluck Jack raises a white eyebrow and from the pilots chair opens his hidden drawer of dirty tricks. Scrolls thru the listing till he gets to AI pacification. Rembering too well his history with Rasia and Rasia's ship the pegasus. Not getting the ship AI nemo involved he hops up and carries the drawer over to the manual comms on the other side of the bridge. Plugs in a patch cord and dials up Rasia frequency. Taking a moment to glance at Heidi he smiles lightly. Heidi steps back saying ok thats bad. Jack plugs the other end of the patch cord into the drawer of dirty tricks and activates the program. On Raisa's comms a series of blips beeps, mathematical equations and emotional bits of poetry give Rasia's mind something else to deal with.
[04:51] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): jack don't let the yandere handle it
[04:53] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The comm frequency cannot be shut off by Rasia or anything in her head. The moment the program in the drawer of dirty tricks was activated it transmits energy thru hyperspace to her location where it becomes sound waves to be heard by her ears. A minute amount of feedback interacts with the devices in the drawer of dirty tricks... allowing the program to adjust to her reactions. Hearing Rasia's voice he opens ships comms. "Eh dont be talking about that on comms' or I'll everyone where your underwear ended up after that party with the Doohoag'peroth... besides I aready forgot what day it is..."
[04:53] Knaster doin his best to force his waty through the asteroid filed , back again , taking more and more damage ojn his way and smoke coming out of the control panel , he use his standard way of ftrying to fix it by giving it a well placed sturdy kick with the result of even more smoke coming . He use his hand to cut through the thick and reach for the screen to call in " Its up to you now Jack...I have engine problems ..and something feels hot in under the seat ...Im sorry Raisa..You have to trust Jackl on this one ...best of luck to the both of you "
[04:54] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): whatever
[04:55] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Roger that Knaster stay put and watch some vids. We're minutes away. Will pick you both up and be under way faster then my momma can make my momma is so fat jokes."
[04:57] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): bastet cuts through via her xsu pull up grav cannon is ready
[05:00] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Nemo spins the Newluck around while Heidi uses the forward rays to brush the asteroids aside. The rearhold opens to accept Rasia and her pod. Jack on comms asks Rasia... "you clear for me to turn this off now... " Heidi rather pleased with her ability with the tractor/repulsor rays clears a path towards Knaster's ship.
[05:03] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): nods
[05:05] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): bastet now *peggy fires her grav cannon obiterating the blob
[05:09] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Good I dont have to reveal anything else... " Turning off the program he pulls the patches and takes the pilot seat. A few minutes pass before the Newluck with its rays get to Knaster and have him aboard. The grav cannon being fired in the pod obliterates the blob fragment which had stowed away the life pod somehow and a makes a nice hole. The rest of the force happily fires outside the newluck as the rearhold doors open to accept Knasters ship. What look like engines on the rear of the ship reveal themselves to be complicated ray emitters which tractor his ship neatly aboard..
[05:11] Knaster working hard to not loose full control of hi ship steering right through the field but managing to not take any more damage to his ship , a glance over his shoulder and wondering how they are handling it back there he knows its nothing he can do to assist . In frustration he pound his big fist on the panel and like a miracle its starts glowing and shining again and his thundering laughter is heard echoing through the ship , finally he is through the asteroid field and he can set course back to where they had their rendezvous point earlier with both the package and the download as an extra bonus . Now he just have to hope for the best of luck fo Raisa and Jack . His thoughts wanders of to them and the odd looking place and that stone " I wonder....what was inside that stone " he mumbles steering his vessel through deep space
[05:12] Knaster meeting Jack and gets picked up by him and greets him with a wide grin " Im glad you both made it "
[05:13] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): bastet where the fuck you find that and how? "erm i picked ip the info from your xsu and then somehow merged with a duel core"
[05:15] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Passing Nemo control of the ship Jack walks past Heidi to the rearhold after the pressure stabilizes. He pauses a moment as he feels a shift in the fabric of existence. "Rasia encountered something not to smile about." Stepping quickly over to Rasia he stands over her.. ok so big trouble glob blob' whatever go charge and run diagnostics. Or I'll dig up the corpse of your aunt betty and find a necromancer to reanimate her corpse."
[05:18] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Nemo reports over ship comms that the ship is now heading back to orbit around Araxes without delay. Jack Turns to Knaster... "what did you two find out there' only truly nasty dark stuff gets Rasia's head botched up. Most of that sort of thing ain't human."
[05:18] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): why
[05:22] Knaster stretch himself a bit before responding " Nah.. nothing much " winks in an obvious way but a shutter runs through his body as he thinks back , he shakes it of and pulls his small hand held device out from in under his shirt " :: but I did manage to download something you might find more then interesting ..and there was another thing there as well...some sort of rock or stone ..I wasnt able to have a closer look at it before it all get a bit messy and ...well you know " chuckles
[05:26] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Attempts to help Rasia out of the life pod. His eyes light up at the sight of the disk. "Thats bonus pay the moment that is handed over to me... and I dont quite rightly know much of anything yet. Glob Blob usually implies stuff I dont like to talk about in polite company... and nine times out of ten psychic phenomenon I will not talk about in private company or girlfriends.... there are remmants and things from old wars scattered about.. things which like to hide under rocks... or be found so they can grab you."
[05:27] NVX-148 Rasia (baoneko): well i did resit a control entity
[05:27] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): impressive rasia' are you saying a overlord?
[05:30] Knaster raise a brow turning to Raisa all curious , although he had heard of them he didnt know much about them and really never heard anyone that managed to get away alive from them , his view of Raisa had shifted more then once during this simple stamp delivery to say the least
[05:34] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): turns back to Knaster. "Package can wait... that disk has vital info to give to Nemo to process. No questions asked 10k in credits/ closer look likely more.. there may still be a overlord on our tail."
[05:37] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): (((Rp wise we can end there if everyone is allright with it' time for me to head to bed' and as is we could run another hour easy.))

[2018/03/08 19:11] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Oh pretty well I beieve' things with Unitrade have been fun. You?"
[2018/03/08 19:12] NicotineAddiction: "hmm reading about the civil war on the planet Hybrashel "
[2018/03/08 19:12] Lysana FireBride: entered chat range (16.16 m).
[2018/03/08 19:12] Lysana FireBride: entered the region (16.16 m).
[2018/03/08 19:13] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "ah what is the topic tonight... and tell me more about this civil war..."
[2018/03/08 19:13] Lag Gate v4 (0.200milliseconds) whispers: Lysana McMillan, Your script time load is 278 µs. You are not allowed to pass until your script time load is under 250 µs. If you need help, please contact an Admin.
[2018/03/08 19:13] NicotineAddiction: Greetings Lysana
[2018/03/08 19:13] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Greetings, Truthsayer.
[2018/03/08 19:13] NicotineAddiction: Hmm hadn't got a topic for tonight
[2018/03/08 19:14] NicotineAddiction: by Hybrashel is the major coffee producer for the sector
[2018/03/08 19:14] NicotineAddiction: and it's president for life shot himself after stating "What is wealth, what is coffee next to the cold hard and cruel cosmos?"
[2018/03/08 19:14] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Oh, my goodness.
[2018/03/08 19:15] NicotineAddiction: This was on planet wide holo
[2018/03/08 19:15] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Imagines bug eyed caffiene addicts conducting war over espresso beans.
[2018/03/08 19:15] NicotineAddiction: end result is quite viscious civil war
[2018/03/08 19:15] NicotineAddiction: and a complete mess in the sectors coffee markets
[2018/03/08 19:15] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): My distant ancestors had fair dust-ups over cattle, but it was far more localized.
[2018/03/08 19:16] NicotineAddiction: "Well it turns out you just can't grow coffee any ware and Hybrashel has the largest arable land with the best conditions for it"
[2018/03/08 19:16] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) nods. "A delicate one, that."
[2018/03/08 19:16] NicotineAddiction: "It's very likey if you drink coffee on araxes is comes from Hybrashel"
[2018/03/08 19:17] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) frowns. "We do keep it in the House for guests and acolytes..."
[2018/03/08 19:17] NicotineAddiction: "Ah, watch the market for when the price crashes. Supposed the factions keep on dumping coffee to fund their war effort"
[2018/03/08 19:18] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Nods. "Any more of a clue on why the president killed himself?"
[2018/03/08 19:18] NicotineAddiction: "Well that's were the Kriegaardian Self Deconstructor Cult comes in"
[2018/03/08 19:18] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) raises an eyebrow.
[2018/03/08 19:18] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Self-deconstructor..."
[2018/03/08 19:18] NicotineAddiction: "They are notorious group of nilhlist terrorist"
[2018/03/08 19:19] NicotineAddiction: "The Imperial version of revers if you will"
[2018/03/08 19:19] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): ooh, dear
[2018/03/08 19:20] NicotineAddiction: "They have a lovely game of reading some really hard core philosphy books on the unwary until the victims lose all hope"
[2018/03/08 19:20] Amber Windjammer (jancice.bearsfoot): is online.
[2018/03/08 19:20] NicotineAddiction: "There is reason we only teach this stuff at university level"
[2018/03/08 19:20] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Well at least they sound human' in such affairs there is always a probability of worse things then cults."
[2018/03/08 19:20] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) starts to giggle and catches herself, then sighs. "It's actually rather cunning of them."
[2018/03/08 19:21] NicotineAddiction: "Well, not to be patronizing, but do remember they'
[2018/03/08 19:21] NicotineAddiction: had tens of thousands of years to work on this"
[2018/03/08 19:21] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) nods.
[2018/03/08 19:21] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): So many philosophers out there, you could find someone's most tender spots already properly attcked.
[2018/03/08 19:22] NicotineAddiction: Indeed, well hmm they accuse my order of making a martial art of this
[2018/03/08 19:22] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) chuckles.
[2018/03/08 19:22] NicotineAddiction: The Voice and all that
[2018/03/08 19:22] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Well, if it's an art for your order, you more than likely apply it with more thought.
[2018/03/08 19:23] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Pauses a moment and reacts to a silent comm on a small circular datapad.
[2018/03/08 19:24] NicotineAddiction: "So any news from the Gama III elections? I hear Slump's campaing is already denoucing "One Clone, One Vote" as un Gamerian"
[2018/03/08 19:24] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) chuckles. "Nothing since our visit and my getting that guard of theirs."
[2018/03/08 19:25] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): I anticipate the briefing dossier very soon.
[2018/03/08 19:26] NicotineAddiction: "Hmm, any issues with the body guards, I have noticed Myrmidons being quite.. enthusiastic before, like when the threw blood on the chapter house furniture as part of the some celibitory gesture"
[2018/03/08 19:27] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) smirks. "No, not so far. He's content with staying on the balcony and we've already discussed my Encounter space's security precautions so he knows not to be there when I use it."
[2018/03/08 19:27] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): I think he's aware of Araxes' relative safety so long as he keeps abreast of new arrivals.
[2018/03/08 19:28] NicotineAddiction: "Oh dear, yes that could be an sisue"
[2018/03/08 19:28] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Yes. Even just for tea, a full-metal Anubis could be a bit of a buzzkill.
[2018/03/08 19:28] NicotineAddiction: "Hmm hard to belive even that Gamerian Pirate idiot would be foolish enough to try anything here"
[2018/03/08 19:28] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Just so.
[2018/03/08 19:29] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): But they're obeying their proper forms, so I can but let them as far as my limits permit.
[2018/03/08 19:29] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) gestures with her hand in casual dismissal.
[2018/03/08 19:30] NicotineAddiction shurgs "Indeed"
[2018/03/08 19:30] NicotineAddiction: "I suppose I should be happy no one is blaming me for the whole election"
[2018/03/08 19:30] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) laughs. "You are off the hook this time."
[2018/03/08 19:31] NicotineAddiction: "Yes, it seems quite odd"
[2018/03/08 19:31] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Glances up from his pad. "What is the election exactly for... i heard of it.. just no clue what position or authority over what."
[2018/03/08 19:31] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Governor of Gama 3.
[2018/03/08 19:31] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): I was put on the ballot by the Prime Ma'at.
[2018/03/08 19:31] NicotineAddiction: "Yes, ruler of the planet of the swamp mellons"
[2018/03/08 19:31] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) laughs softly.
[2018/03/08 19:32] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "huh' who'd want that." he asks nonplussed.
[2018/03/08 19:33] NicotineAddiction: "Who would wage war and kill ten thousands over it too?"
[2018/03/08 19:33] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Honestly, I didn't, but the High priestess saw a higher cause being served by my remaining on the ballot. As for anyone else? I wonder. There must be something they know.
[2018/03/08 19:33] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): It keeps being attacked and taken over.
[2018/03/08 19:33] NicotineAddiction: "So far Austin Seriota and the Pryxian Alliance"
[2018/03/08 19:33] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): notices kat coronet left her carrot on the counter from so long ago.
[2018/03/08 19:33] NicotineAddiction: "Well Slurm is obvious, it is a Gammarian world"


[2018/03/08 19:34] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Yes, Slump has a connection and ambitions.
[2018/03/08 19:34] NicotineAddiction: "I suppose he couldn't talk any other Alpha plus into be his sockpuppet so he had to do it himself this time"
[2018/03/08 19:34] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Likely not.
[2018/03/08 19:35] NicotineAddiction: "see what lovely people you get look forward in dealing with?"
[2018/03/08 19:35] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) smirks.
[2018/03/08 19:35] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): With my prior occupation, it's what I used to call Tuesday.
[2018/03/08 19:35] NicotineAddiction: "So Jack, you had news about Unitrade?"
[2018/03/08 19:38] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Well today there was a brief small cargo ship contest at the araxes free port' Delta Nova took first place and 5k in standard credits. While there was a mission night or so back to finish the delivery of some cargo to Araxes starport. it had galactic postage stamps which are worth not quie a mega credit but more enough standard to make it worth while. Knaster a new station neighbor and Rasia went after it. "
[2018/03/08 19:39] Cheese Samboosa whispers: Oh my...this is so good!
[2018/03/08 19:39] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) smiles. "She's quite enthusiastic about her work with you, Jack. I'm pleased you took her on."
[2018/03/08 19:41] NicotineAddiction: Oh, what kind of contest?
[2018/03/08 19:41] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Raises an eyebrow. "Rasia and I have been friends a long time... knew her mother ectera' long long history. So wasn't quite a matter of taking someone on' as continued association."
[2018/03/08 19:41] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Ah, I see!
[2018/03/08 19:42] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): That would assuage any doubts you have about her Guild association.
[2018/03/08 19:42] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) smiles.
[2018/03/08 19:44] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "oh just a random contest for best small cargo ship. Not a huge deal of turn out but enough to not feel bad about doing it with that kind of turn out ten times... Rasia's interaction with the guild and quite a bit else is fine by me as long as it doesnt interfere with her duties as Unit Commander or Ship Mechanic. She does alot and works and interacts with quite a few other organizations as well."
[2018/03/08 19:44] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Indeed she does. I"m impressed with her abilities.
[2018/03/08 19:45] NicotineAddiction: "ah"
[2018/03/08 19:45] NicotineAddiction: "so what are the future plants then?"
[2018/03/08 19:47] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "speaking of her abiitites she encountered a overlord in a asteroid field not far enough away from here... bit of a refresher' overlords were organic tech buiit a long time ago for war... they tend to like to mind control populations. The one there is not mobile yet' and from the reports it's spawned a help the children on this asteroid settlement trap."
[2018/03/08 19:48] Kayasu (lea.lewinter): is offline.
[2018/03/08 19:49] NicotineAddiction: Overlord...?
[2018/03/08 19:52] Kayasu (lea.lewinter): is online.
[2018/03/08 19:53] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Rasia managed to resist the overlords mental powers and its ability to drain her energy dry. Overlords are most of the time not in most history books.. ya have to refer back to Earth four space travel emergence periods to follow the colony that built them' its more then a bit nasty... specifically there is the overlords flesh... bit like a gelatinous blob... various colors... mostly transparent and not something ya want to touch.. the flesh globs range in size but most happy the size o this large rug... comony found in sizes like this cushion"
[2018/03/08 19:55] NicotineAddiction: "I see, and why did they create Overlords?"
[2018/03/08 19:57] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "The flesh globs form a orb over time which is capable of monsterous mental powers in regards to computation and mind control. Usually forms a symbiosis with humanoid populations whom have a moderate amount of control over their daily lives.. acts a bit like a mother hen... which gets to why they were created... drop a baseballl size baby overlord into a population center and in a few years its yours... with the overlord running your program and using the population as slave labor."
[2018/03/08 19:58] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) shivers a little at the last.
[2018/03/08 19:59] NicotineAddiction: "I see, so the propulation is reducted so many avatars stumbling along at the remote comand of some user. It seems seem fantastical"
[2018/03/08 20:00] Patricia de Chenier: entered the region (65.66 m).
[2018/03/08 20:01] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "As you can guess' war is long over and they occasionally still appear out of the woodwork. This one has been dormant until recently. The asteroid field was part of a ancient world... and on that world there were some sleepers in long sleep tanks like the kind old spacers used to use on long trips. Power there nigh completly run out' mostly kids in the tanks' I'm guessing at least three ships lost to the trap' become part of the settlement there and scavenging ships off the spacelane... like the one with the cargo which led Knaster and Rasia there."
[2018/03/08 20:02] Patricia de Chenier: entered chat range (16.16 m).
[2018/03/08 20:02] NicotineAddiction: "Hmm this isn't in the Mu Draconis belt, is it?"
[2018/03/08 20:03] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Greetings, everyone!"
[2018/03/08 20:03] NicotineAddiction: "Ala to you Cometessa"
[2018/03/08 20:03] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "The population does have some moderate control over their lives... the overlord however can impulse an override and the flesh when not formed into a large brain formation often tail or are part of the bodies of the population."
[2018/03/08 20:04] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Hello, Patricia.
[2018/03/08 20:04] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Bonsoir, Truthsayer! and Hello, Lysana, and Jack!"
[2018/03/08 20:06] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Nods to Paricia's greeting. "Unfortunately it is.. though likely the asteroid left its original system over 100,000 years ago. Knaster was sharp and got a download of the settlements computer system. I'm still going over it... but havent quite yet pin pointed its origin."
[2018/03/08 20:07] NicotineAddiction: "Hmm, well that sounds odly disturbing"
[2018/03/08 20:07] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "An asteroid from out of system?"
[2018/03/08 20:10] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Sighs and grabs a snack off the table. "If jurrisdiction is a question.. there are old ones... or sleepers in that settlement. Ultimately the Order of the Old Ones considers the issue it's business and responsibility to handle. So scouring archives and confronting the ethical issues involved. Most of the settlement of course will die if the overlord is killed outright... it's symbios is the only thing keeping the primarily child population alive despite radiation posioning."
[2018/03/08 20:11] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan) looks at her wrist suddenly, a very faint beep audible under the conversation. She reads what's on her screen, frowns slightly, and taps the screen before looking back up. "I fear I need to head back to the House. Anubis seems to think something's amiss. Or the Pryxians are getting touchy. Or who the frell knows."

[2018/03/08 20:12] NicotineAddiction: "Hmm well good luck to you then Lady Lysana"
[2018/03/08 20:12] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Thanks. It should be fine, but I try not to irritate something with that many ways of killing something.
[2018/03/08 20:12] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Nods at farewell to the departing woman.
[2018/03/08 20:13] Lysana FireBride (lysana.mcmillan): Until later, all.

[2018/03/08 20:18] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "I dont exactly have sample yet I'm afraid Patricia... and no one who went bothered to get any sensor readings so... going on the oral report noting skin covered with boils and legions. "
[2018/03/08 20:18] NicotineAddiction: "What?,...By the Maker"
[2018/03/08 20:19] NicotineAddiction: "This from radiation poisoning...?"
[2018/03/08 20:21] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "As I was about to say... our drives and shielding occasionally suffer partial failure while we're in irrelevant mode, and we drop into the interstellar gas at large fractions of the speed of light. Then we get massive radiation flux from striking the interstellar wiind.. So we have experience in treating severe radiation sickness. what you're describing is late-stage acute radiation sickness. Entolimod and TP508 are very effective even in late stages of the illness."
[2018/03/08 20:22] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "And we have LOTS of it on our ships."

From the disk I do know that it's not a nuclear power plant... bit of a third teir uncommon fusion drive'." Thinks over what she's said. "With a Overlord aboard that is not a good idea' and the overlord has the population fitting asteroids with equipment to spread it's flesh spawn... and cause ships to crash in the area. I've enough beds to put the population in stasis and some of that medicine would increase their chances of survival."
[2018/03/08 20:26] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Then we can send doppelgangers to assist."
[2018/03/08 20:27] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "As is' The newluck has setup a sensor net around the area to make sure nothing leaves the area. Also the people there are speaking Galactic common."

All it will take is a baseball sized portion of it's flesh to spawn more. Ethically and stragety wise it's smarter to burn the area and the people there. Thats not happening but it is the smart thing to do. I understand dopplegangers then. Small hammer might get the job done where a large hammer might make things go splat."

However overlords can drain both kinetic and other forms of energy. She dropped a EMP and that stunned the thing long enough for her to get away. It's sitting on its nest so hasn't left."
[2018/03/08 20:38] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) smiles wickedly. "Doppels can take EMP. We'd just have to switch the lace off before sending them in."

Game plan is to ultimately send the settlement out of the system and on its way... leave it to be and not cart everyone off to who knows where. "

[2018/03/08 21:10] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) says "I think - possibly - I know a way around the overlords. THEY are totally nonhuman?"
[2018/03/08 21:11] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) nods to Poly, but saves her attention to the exchange between Patricia and Jack
[2018/03/08 21:11] Poly (polynova): oh, I don't want to interrupt too much, but....who are the overlords?
[2018/03/08 21:11] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): He nods. "However they are organic in composition and capable of surving and entering a dormant state"
[2018/03/08 21:11] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): 'And dependent on nucleic acids for their bodily functions, as humani are."
[2018/03/08 21:13] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "We can engineer a virus that attacks THEIR nucleic acids, if we get a sample of any of their hybrid with humans. Especially if their DNA uses nucleotide bases that human DNA does not!"
[2018/03/08 21:15] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "From the records I've reviewed they are truly more a gelatinous fluid and often suspected of being alien life forms.. no dna sequences engineered as weapons in a ancient civilizations dirty trick drawer. What you are suggesting will however likely need to be done to remove the symbiotic fluid in the human hosts. The sub species data on their dna should be in the medical files I passed Constance."
[2018/03/08 21:15] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Connie?"
[2018/03/08 21:16] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): "looking... yes! It's here... wow. What a mess.. " she looks up at Jack apologetically - "Not your files - the hybridization scheme is... scary."
[2018/03/08 21:16] Poly (polynova): gealtinous fluid? i say under my breath
[2018/03/08 21:18] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "The records did not go into the kind of detail I would prefer yet somehow the overlords flesh mimics something closer to giant amoeba's another version of the same kind of tech was once used disasterousy by a civilization to wipe out a galaxy... specifically targeting those which did not have the same sexual reproduction. "
[2018/03/08 21:19] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Connie and I will head back to the Embassy and unleash the Q-comp on this. We might be able to develop a virus that only attacks this alien DNA.. undoing the forced symbiosis... "
[2018/03/08 21:20] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Again without samples that will be difficult. Those medical files I've not scoured.. if there is any early infection data you'll be able to catch a break.. however its just as likely the overlord waited for the sleepers to wake up."
[2018/03/08 21:20] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Or, better yet, a prion. Something they can't kill"
[2018/03/08 21:21] Poly (polynova): thinks something dangerous has come to this place
[2018/03/08 21:22] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) looks at Connie - "Time to use up our doppels. We can't have biological people doing this mission. It has to be AIs, Yours, mine, and I'm thinking Col. Fiertze's.. all in body armor... "
[2018/03/08 21:23] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) sighs.. "I just got used to the idea of having a twin sister, too."
[2018/03/08 21:23] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "We cannot allow the overlord to gain mobiity or it could travel here and send out flesh spawn to other places. Another day or so at most. "
[2018/03/08 21:24] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "If it's that bad, the only way to deal with it is... a cautery. With mass weapons."
[2018/03/08 21:25] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "We can make it painless.. a kilo of antinickel and they'll never know what hit them."
[2018/03/08 21:25] Poly (polynova): but aren't there people and children there?
[2018/03/08 21:25] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) looks up sadly at Poly.. "And there are people and children here, too."

[2018/03/08 21:26] Poly (polynova): would there be a way to get the overloard to leave the bodies of the humans?
[2018/03/08 21:28] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "If I cant find something promising in archives... and even if I do.. and it fails that will likely have to happen. Overlords are nasty and records dont show how many successfull rescue attempts have succeded.. just page after page of bombings... ya might thing new tech is better... but mostly new tech is regrown after some global or system or galaxy disaster... I've contacts with other researchers and my own drawer of dirty tricks. To anwers your question mam' there is... most of them are lethal... and in t his case the population is being kept alive by the overlord."
[2018/03/08 21:28] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "I don't like it, either. But if Jack is right... Connie and I will try to develop the prion overnight - if we can, we can make it and have our doppels deliver in a highly infectious virus vector. But if we can't... this is a threat to every organic life form in the sector. At least."
[2018/03/08 21:29] Poly (polynova): what if a new human were to be nearby, would the overlord leave the humans to go after the newer healthy one?
[2018/03/08 21:29] NicotineAddiction: Well you will have to pardon me all, my bed time
[2018/03/08 21:29] Poly (polynova): oh, good nite, nice to have met you

[2018/03/08 21:30] NicotineAddiction: [[yes, this was intresting]]]
[2018/03/08 21:31] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Well its only a threat if it can move.. and theres a sensor net around the place now. Aye Dr. Adab. Have a good night. The overlord is always interested in acquiring new workers. It doesnt have to leave an old body to do that. Overlord flesh can grow to the size of a planet unchecked. It's variant ate worlds whole."
[2018/03/08 21:32] Poly (polynova): oh no, and it is nearby? and I thought that tentacled monster that I saw in the desert was huge
[2018/03/08 21:33] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Which is why I'm calling in the Strategic Task Force. I can't allow this thing to spread through the Galaxy. You're right, Jack, if we can kill it this size... we have to. I'd like to save the people there, but we may not be able to."
[2018/03/08 21:33] XENA (ladyazul): is online.
[2018/03/08 21:34] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) regards Patricia with a look of anguish... then ducks her head without speaking.
[2018/03/08 21:35] Poly (polynova): how about putting the people back into stasis tubes and then get rid of the overlord?
[2018/03/08 21:35] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "I like that guy' in the desert... happily that one isn't a overlord. I hear you Dr. Chenier. However I have to call juurisdiction and lead on this.. as it deals with old ones... and button pressing needs to be under my finger."
[2018/03/08 21:36] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) nods. "I'll bow to your discretion, and it'll be a "dual key" weapon. You and I have to agree to detonate it"
[2018/03/08 21:39] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Poly, we'll send a team of our AIs to try and terminate the overlord without killing innocents. That's all I can promise."
[2018/03/08 21:39] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Smart thought mam' I'll be comm'ing in with a telepresence droid... the gals here and whatever task force will use dopplegangers which can likely stay in quaruntine. Unfortunately the overlord with the population removed does not become less of a threat. If anything it becomes more of one... as its attention is not split by more tasks to perform. It has a nasty attack where it forms its body into a thrumming brain around victims to perform its mind control process. Yet otherwise its a army of globs and blobs which eat kinectic energy, laser weapon fire... and quite a few of the non bigger bombs have no effect whatsoever."
[2018/03/08 21:39] Poly (polynova): that gives then a chance at least

[2018/03/08 21:40] Poly (polynova): is this asteroid nearby?
[2018/03/08 21:40] Poly (polynova): the one with the overlord and the people?
[2018/03/08 21:42] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "On the very edge of the systems oort cloud and the overlord and the settlement doesnt have the energy or fuel to get here.. There is jamming field hiding its location.. and I'll share the coordinates at the hour."
[2018/03/08 21:42] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Good here, too. Once we evacuate the humans,,, then we must strike fast - I'm having weapons pull out a gigaton three-stage jacket for that antimatter charge. I want that overlord gone, one way or another."
[2018/03/08 21:42] Poly (polynova): I hope all goes well

[2018/03/08 21:43] Poly (polynova): I hope we all meet again
[2018/03/08 21:43] Poly (polynova): stands up
[2018/03/08 21:43] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) whispers: Nice to meet you!
[2018/03/08 21:43] Poly (polynova): bye for now
[2018/03/08 21:43] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): bbye
[2018/03/08 21:43] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): take care!
[2018/03/08 21:43] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "For safety sake I suggest the humans stay put and after they stay put as well. Getting them in bed quicky and with some meds/antivirus on hand... thats paramount. "




[2018/03/08 21:44] Poly (polynova): thank you, you too
[2018/03/08 21:44] biczyk: is online.
[2018/03/08 21:45] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Reintroduction to human society is a choice for old ones... and as a founder of the order of the old ones we take repsonsibiity for their care and treatment."
[2018/03/08 21:45] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "We'll develop the specific antiviral for the virus tonight. And a ship-size radiation response pack, with plasma, RBCs, platelets, the whole thing."
[2018/03/08 21:46] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): "And I'll be responsible for treating the radiation cases.. ."
[2018/03/08 21:46] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Roger that' I should ask if there will be a bill?"
[2018/03/08 21:47] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "We save star systems for free. We may ask for help if and when we locate those Reavers. I don't intend to let THEM go, either."
[2018/03/08 21:47] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "I'll finish up the research and puppy transformation plan for the overlord."
[2018/03/08 21:48] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Sounds like we are comrades in arms then' I help and save where I can."
[2018/03/08 21:48] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Very well, Jack, See you when we're done. Connie.. let's get those numbers crunched."
[2018/03/08 21:48] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Again a pleasure to meet you Constance"
[2018/03/08 21:48] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): "Aye aye, Ma'am! Nice meeting you, too Jack!"

Overlord of Thafo (3)
by UTC on Thu, 15 Mar 2018 21:28

[21:59] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): opens comms, "This is Jack Cloudborn of the Newluck attempting to reach Dr. Chenier"
[22:00] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) opens her pocket comm and speaks softly "de Chenier here, how may I help you?
[22:02] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): For whatever reason he always expects to get one of her staff before reaching her. He pauses a moment to take note that comms dont work like that as much anymore. "Roger that' just calling to see if you and your ship are ready to make that trip we disccused earlier."
[22:03] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Yes, I'm ready.. I just must disengage from schola... which is still in session. We stilll have the poorly housebroken iguana here."
[22:07] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Aye I must have my days mixed up.. stopped by waters end earlier and must have been early. If by iguana ya mean Constable Grim' there are more then a few occupations where such behavior is appropriate... that includes constable and merc' always found him to be a salt of the earth type of fellow' thought we were friends till he made a offhand remark on way out the door past the guards. Stepped back in to correct him as best I could before leaving. In any case give me a shout when you're free."
[22:09] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "As it happens, we're just now finishing up...
[22:12] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): where do we assemble?
[22:15] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Roger that'. Transmits a time sensitive datafile which will self delete. The file includes the coordinates for rendevous on the edge of the araxes solar system deep in the ort cloud of asteroids. Passphrases for inter-ship comms and sensor sharing programs. Codes to access the sensor chain surrounding the settlement area ectera. The file will self delete about three hours after reaching the rendevous and it is clear that the codes will not be good until that moment."
[22:19] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "There are all the particulars. We've got a couple options to talk about while getting into position... it might be smart if I go in alone to try out my gear in diffusing the situation peacefully with the overlord. It's an old thing in and of itself Can't hate a thing which keeps kids alive even if they are covered in radiation boils."


[23:06] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The Newluck awaits Dr Chenier and her ship at the rendevous point. Outside the ship are what are clearly the cyro chamber beds stacked in a ready pile. With a small craft ready to lead it in as a train. The sensor chain has picked up no attempts of anything within attempting to leave as yet. He calls over comms. "I'm sorta glad for the additional time in prepping for today. Good to be working with you. Oh and please remember the kids and people are not to be removed from the vicinity unless in severe circumstances. Rejoining the galaxy after sleeping for too long aint always pretty. Old ones are prepared for this."
[23:09] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "I'll leave it in your capable hands, then
[23:10] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): got hi!
[23:11] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): He pauses a moment. "Eh if ya even think my hands might not be capable given the situation let me know you may be right and I may have to step back... if we have a chance to keep em alive to live out their days in peace thats worth more then standard order protocol."
[23:14] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): the Blackwell has everything we need to give those kids a chance to recover from their present condition
[23:16] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Beautiful name for a ship by the way... and a quite fine ship she is. I figure going in quiet is advised... to ways to do this' together or I go in five minutes headstart to try my bit.."".
[23:17] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): The Blackwell's named after the first woman military surgeon in the US armed forces


[23:28] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): [23:23] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The meeting spot is well chosen with ample positioning between several larger asteroids on the edge of the field. A thousand baseball sized sensor pods circle a 500,000km area around the location of the settlement further in. Aboard the Newluck Captain Cloudborn ensures the ships' ai is watching the field like a hawk. The prior team which went in discovered that the overlord had instructed its mind controlled population to use the asteroids as weapons to damage and then scrap and salvage passing ships.

23:32] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ok
[23:33] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "So Blackwell which way ya leaning' five minute head start for me' or all together?"
[23:33] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "FTLS Elizabeth Blackwell actual, we'll move in with you at standard separation of 20 kilometers. Over."
[23:35] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Blackwell to Newluck, how copy? Over"
[23:37] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "I hear' ya I'll lead the way with my bed train." Once the word is sent he slips into the telepresence pod and dons the helmet which will allow him to control a robot suit and keep his mind out of harms way. The Brain Tank solution 1-12 strapped to his back already set to go. In short order he hops in to the small ship and couples with the lead bed before signalling again to Blackwell. "We are go"
[23:37] Model: KZO ''Koz'' (rintenshi) entered the region (234.48 m).
[23:38] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Newluck we copy. We have a Fenris on deck with our doppel squad standing by for your orders to make an entry. Over."
[23:39] Model: KZO ''Koz'' (rintenshi) entered the region (242.15 m).
[23:41] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Roger that' stay on my tail 20 km from the end of my train'" The bed train is neatly stacked in groups of 16 and there are evidence of more empty tanks like the one on his back arranged in the package. Each section is linked with autoresponse thrusters to enable some rather fancy flying with a big tail which otherwise might interact with moving asteroids in the area.
[23:43] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) gently guides Blackwell into formation with Newluck, "We copy and are holding 20 km behind your bed train. Over."
[23:43] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((bout time we make that roll to find out what we encounter at the doorstep... first is last and all so that happy oppurtunity can goto constance if its amiable. Not to mention shes likely not seen the table))
[23:44] Model: KZO ''Koz'' (rintenshi) entered the region (231.80 m).
[23:44] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((refills his coffee cup))
[23:45] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) gives the order, and the FTLS Ortheris launches from the main fiighter deck on Blackwell., making a stealthy approach toward the object..
[23:45] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) is rolling for an outcome
[23:45] D100: Patricia de Chenier rolls 68
[23:45] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ((68 Overlord is oblivious to entry until they are present in the settlement.))
[23:47] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): The doppelgangers of Patricia, Constance and Jeannot Fiertze dock wioth the object, and force an entry through the airlock. No resistance encountered."
[23:47] Model: KZO ''Koz'' (rintenshi) entered the region (250.25 m).
[23:50] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): As they pass thru the denser part of the asteroid field leading to the settlement they pass by several wrecked and obviously salvaged ships. They encounter no resistance. The settlement itself is made up of a thousand asteroids forming a shield wall around a internal structure which appears to be a fragment of a planet. Obviously the fragment was once underground and bits of bunker and exposed sections are visible. The entry to the spherical shield wall is a narrow opening. While there are hundred of holes where the shield wall is incomplete. Contained in the reports about this place is that the overlord flesh used its glob blob body to cover those cracks and that form is exccesivley dangerous when it comes to resisting mind control.
[23:51] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 97
[23:52] Delta Nova (daciana.seda) entered the region.
[23:52] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): There are several recently constructed docks and a large landing deck. Lights in the habitation are low and this may indicate the settlements night period.
[23:52] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Ortheris actual to Blackwell actual, be advised we see children riiding a ... thing. It acts like... a PUPPY! Over"
[23:53] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Blackwell actual to Ortheris crew, take no action until we hear from Newluck, over."
[23:54] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Roger that' share a vidcom eh" Jack parks on the large landing deck and gets the beds parked and starts the process of getting the clusters of 16 beds into a more suitable train for passing thru the station. "Newluck here' so is the thing being ridden like a puppy green and gelatinious?"
[23:54] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): "Ortheris actual to Blackwell actual, we copy and are standing by.. "
[23:56] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) keys her bodycam to transmit to Newluck "We are sending video and telemetry broadband to you Newluck... and yes, it's a gooey gelatinous mess. Do we try to rescue children, over?"
[23:58] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): /me-doppek is uneasy, the Penning Trap full of antimatter reminding her that this mission could still go totally sideways.
[00:02] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Newluck Jack' be cautious... I advise if whats acting friendly and puppy stays friendly and puppy treat the kids and adults as you will" After speaking he checks in with Nemo on the Newluck for some relevant data and reports on the passive scans of the area. The two hundred or so beds can now be seen to be standing on a strange combination of four legs and mid placed wheels. After consulting with the newluck he enters the settlement from another airlock and sets a device there to allow the beds to enter a few at a time and begin spreading out. Happily his robotic suit makes more noise and not much then the beds he sets to spread out over the settlement area widely. Nemo aboard the ship coordinating them to act like additional sensors and move them into position near life sign readings.
[00:05] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): We copy, Chenier-doppel and Mirulovic-doppel standing by to provide medical care. Fiertze-doppel is setting up crew-served weapons. Over.
[00:07] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ((BRB))
[00:08] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "I'm inside... readouts show its near a sleep cycle' theres a congregation or gathering chamber towards the center... heading there." Pauses as he watches a few kids pass him in the hall heading to who knows where. The sight of the childrens sickness pains him but he continues on his way. His heads up display running the program he setup for this mission. The attempt to patch into the settlements antiquated comm system was running now. ((Rolls for it))
[00:08] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 34
[00:08] justine4sade entered the region (204.57 m).
[00:12] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) looks bleakly at the children, all of whom show signs of late-stage acute radiation syndrome,. aching to treat them - but staying back
[00:13] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "I hear you' if you'd like to make a settlement wide comm I've set it up to run thru speakers on the beds' they should be in a few minutes. Tried to patch into the settlements comms but no such luck." Emerging into the large gathering area he takes the brain tank off his back and sets up his gear. So far at least everything looked best case scenario. Kids riding the overlord flesh like puppies. A hundred thousand years ago such would make quite a few mercs and shoulders more then a little confused. Still the overlord weapon was either already pacified or pulling them into its trap before it sprung.
[00:14] XENA (ladyazul) is offline.
[00:15] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) is straining not to order a blitz attack on the nauseatig green alien.. bit her original on the bridge of the Blackwell ordered her to await instructions from the mysterious Old One
[00:16] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Ortheris actual to Newluck, is there anything we can od? Over."
[00:19] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Newluck Jack. "Aye figured ya would want to gather the kids together... it must be sleep cycle so quite a few might be sleeping but a soft voice requesting those awake to gather for treatment would be advised. I'm setup with beds in a large central location chamber in the center... Have quite a few beds here and more scattered as a precaution."
[00:20] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "We copy, and will begin gathering survivors. Over."
[00:21] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) and the other two doppels fan out through the ship, gently guiding chlldren to Jack's beds..
[00:21] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): References the computer copy. "Original settlers called this room Point Break it might or might no means something to the survivors. Here."
[00:22] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel looks up from one of the children.. "Point Break is where you are set with beds? Over?"
[00:23] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 64
[00:23] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) coos to a knot of pathetically ill children "Let's go to Point Break, babies... "
[00:24] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Checks the scans to determine if the overlord or the adults from the crashed ships caught in the trap fixed the radiation leaks with salavage from the ships. Reports his findings. "Newluck to Blackwell' scans showing the shielding on the settlements reactors to be partially fixed and much improved over the former results listed on the settlements computers."
[00:25] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel has trouble suppresing laughter as the burly, menacing Jeannot Fiertze-dopped does his best be to gentle and meek to the children
[00:26] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "We copy. Spectrographic analysis shows acceptably low neutron flux, so their patches to their reactor shielding must be working. Over."
[00:28] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The beds though originally designed for utility show signs of a bit of decoration and individual attention from the Greenbow Team of Panacea Station. "Improved not fully sealed off yet' and I'll need to confirm with the adults here that they've got what they need to finish the job." A few of the beds can be heard asking the kids their names as the beds flow down the cooridor'. The voices of the beds seem like real people perhaps comming in from far away.
[00:28] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) and Fiertze-doppel and de Chenier-doppel are converging on Point Break with children in tow
[00:29] Jeannot Fiertze entered chat range (2.02 m).
[00:29] Jeannot Fiertze entered the region (2.02 m).
[00:30] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Waves to the doppels as they appear from one of the mainy entrances to the area. Then turns to open a panel in one of the beds to reveal to them food and drink rations. "Good to have company."
[00:31] Jeannot Fiertze: "Jack, good to see you... I'm Col. Jeannot Fiertze's doppel. "Johnny" for short
[00:33] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Offers Johnny a robot hand to shake. "Good to meet you. Keep your eyes sharp for trouble. I'll stay out of your peoples way as much as I can."
[00:34] Jeannot Fiertze shakes Jack's robotic hand with his servo augmented hand, a firm metal grasp
[00:35] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Now that we're all lodge brothers, can we start treating these kids?"
[00:37] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Would smile at the kids if he could... but for the most part he is distracted by the programs running on his heads up display. "Well met. If anything goes south there are extra short range EMP devices on each of the beds." Shows them quickly how the beds work to activate a short term sleep cycle ectera. Where the panels with food and emp equipment are ectera.
[00:38] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel says "EMP's no issue, we're bionic and our control circuits are all electrochemical. Very EMP-hardened."
[00:40] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): "You may fire when ready, Gridley" she giggles
[00:41] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Aye you mentioned that earlier... if the puppies go feral we've evidence those work." Checks the sensor data for a location for the adults the previous mission encountered.
[00:41] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 76
[00:43] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) grins.. "So far, the opposition hasn't shown much training or discpline... we're terribly lucky."
[00:44] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): unholst
[00:45] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): While the Blackwell team get to work he sets out some tables of food. Sharing info as he receives it on comms. "Adults located near the southern airlock down the blue corridor. Reports note amongst the ships which encountered trouble about 37 missing people. Routing data."
[00:47] Jeannot Fiertze -doppel and her squad rush to put the children in the beds... activating the sleep inducers..
[00:48] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The crowd of dirty children seem completely unaware and healthy despite the serious radiation sickness affecting their bodies. Some have gone and woken others. In all there are 57 currently gathered at point break with some variety in their ages. Most are about 10 with a few in their mid teens. A few rare six year olds can be seen to be being helped by older kids.
[00:50] Jeannot Fiertze goes to the larger kids, getting them to help the smaller ones into beds as he does likewise...
[00:51] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 67
[00:53] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Back on the newluck he finds that he keeps wanting to smile assuringly to the children yet knows his robot face doesnt have the equipment. He feeds those waiting to enter the beds. Keeping a close eye on the reports. Nemo aboard the newluck informs him that only a few of the older kids are riding the overlord flesh like horses thru the halls. They are aware of whats going on and seem to be staying back and not intefering for the moment. Jack reports this to Dr. Chenier on silent comms as she works.
[00:53] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel and Mirulovic -doppel see to treating the worst-injured children with IV injections of Entolimod and TP508
[00:54] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 97
[00:55] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel looks up at Fiertze -doppel and says "Johnny, go round up those teenagers in the hallways.. Connie and I have it here.. "
[00:56] Jeannot Fiertze: "Aye aye, Patty... will do!"
[00:58] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) looks around as the children who are here are all lightly asleep and treated, and nervously draws her Deagle blaster..
[01:01] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Using the sample provided by Rasia he gets some sampling scans from the bed sensors of the overlord flesh and runs an analysis for any marked changes. A few things become immediately clear. The overlord flesh has changed markedly. The scans show the children's symbiosis somehow has enabled them to not only overtake but bring the overlord flesh under their control. The deactivation sequence he brought prepared on his back was useless now except as a paper weight on a shelf. A curiosity. Additionally that meant the entire settlement was clear of mind control except perhaps by the children themselves if they developed psi powers due to the proximity in some fashion. That in mind meant the adults had scattered off to bunks likely exhausted from the former mind control forced labor. Using a specific bed with a bit of Rasia dna he tests quickly any response to her presence and finds nothing.
[01:01] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel considers telling Mirulovic -doppel to secure her weapon, but isn't sure that being ready to party isn't a good idea
[01:03] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Nods to the Blackwell team. Seeing all the nearby kids bedded. He relates his findings.
[01:03] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 10
[01:04] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The kids riding overlord flesh seem to understand that medical treatment is a good idea and ride their ponies back with Johhny back to Point Break.
[01:04] Jeannot Fiertze -doppel returns to Point Break with the stragglers as a detonation breaches the wall... he throws himself at the hole and blocks the air from escaping with his body
[01:05] Jeannot Fiertze whispers: "Call the grown-ups NOW! I'm... not sure... how long I'll last here!
[01:07] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel rushes to Jeannot, fear in her eyes as cracks open in the wall...
[01:07] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Come on, big man, hang in there!"
[01:07] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Hearing the explosion Jack rushes out from point break to the sound. His robotic limbs dodging debrie and thru broken sections of concrete. In short order He's on hand and assesses the situation. This stuff is old something broke. Rushing past him he makes for the nearest airlock and grabs at anything capable of patching the hole from the outside.
[01:09] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) -doppel joins de Chenoer- doppel near Fiertze-doppel... bracing him and keeping him from falling through that wall
[01:09] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Once outside he leaps into the air and with an assist from maps from the newluck slams a bit of what he figures will work as a wall panel over the leak... firing up a bit of glue patch goo to make a quick seal.
[01:10] Jeannot Fiertze feels the suction at his back lessen, than disappear altogether.. he falls to the floor momentarily, and the other two doppels help him up
[01:11] Jeannot Fiertze shouts..."Thanks, Jack!"
[01:12] Jeannot Fiertze -doppel grumbles "So much for 'no opposition'... that was a breaching charge!"
[01:12] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Jumps on comms. "This place is far too old' I should've expected something like this. " Grumbles to himself and uses a welding finger to make a more permanent seal. "Once the rest of the kids are to bed it's time to go check in on the adults' they have more recent radiation exposure and have been forcibly worked... oh and please leave at least three of the older kids on the ponies awake please... i repeat please... like pretty please as in this is important... three kids treated and able to talk no sleepy time."
[01:14] Jeannot Fiertze nods.. and goes over with the doctors, helping the rest of the kids. picking out the healthiest of the older kids.. "We need your help. It's important," he says in a low, strong voice...
[01:14] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Please repeat... Johnny define breaching charge" As he talks he makes his way back to the airlock. Having beds scan for other possible structural and explosives booby trapping the settlement.
[01:15] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 54
[01:15] Jeannot Fiertze says "It's a shaped explosive charge made to make a hole through steel plate. Could be a hundred of those things here..."
[01:16] Jeannot Fiertze: "I recognize the blast signature from when we had differences with the Paclids on the way here.."
[01:16] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The Oldest of the kid steps forward and nods. She doesn't talk. She wears a rat tail necklace around her neck and both her arms are covered in scratches and bruises. Her mind reaches out to Johnny curiously.
[01:17] Jeannot Fiertze suddenly becomes very still.. he holsters his blaster...
[01:18] Jeannot Fiertze is helpless to resist
[01:18] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 13
[01:19] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -dopple flinches as another charge goes off,.and the escaping air puills her to the new hole.
[01:20] Jeannot Fiertze watches helplessly, pleading mentally to be released to help his comraed
[01:20] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): A few of the other kids on the overlord flesh ponies are eager for the treatment and only five ultimately remain and they stand around the young girl who stands before Johnny. The young girls contact with Johnnys mind is short she senses no hostile intention from both his body language. She turns towards the next explosion near Dr. Cheniers dopple.
[01:21] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) rushes over to de Chenier and clutches at her to hold her in
[01:22] Gouyen entered the region (120.39 m).
[01:22] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Jack runs back into the settlement only to need to bolt out another airlock in the other direction. Exploring the settlement at a run was assuredly more fun. The young girl releases her touch on Johnnys mind.
[01:22] Jeannot Fiertze feels himself impelled to move to de Chenier-doppel' and grip her in his strong, servoassisted arms
[01:22] Jeannot Fiertze: determination etched on his features
[01:24] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel, patterned as she was on Dr. de Chenier, reaches to Johnny and Connie-doppels for support
[01:24] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): and was never so glad to be held by a man
[01:24] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): For some reason he thinks of Rex as he exits another airlock and grumbles to Nemo about finding where all the charges are and deactivating them if possible. Just as he reaches the breach and starts patching it... Several adult men enter Point Break from another cooridor they do not look happy. They do not look like law abiding citizens of the galaxy. In fact they look like pirates and raiders.
[01:25] Trish (terry3) is online.
[01:26] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) looks at Connie-doppel and says "You go find Jack.. and if you see opposition, you... do what you have to."
[01:27] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The raiders formerly mind controlled by the overlord have rested and awoke. Amongst them they've rallied and gathered some weapons. Seeing the beds and the small team they open fire. The kids which had been riding the ponies get out of the way and find cover.
[01:27] Jeannot Fiertze nods.. "I've got her... Connie, you take the grenades off my belt and my spare power packs for the blaster... "
[01:28] Jeannot Fiertze -doppel carefully kills the rest with aimed fire..
[01:29] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) sees the raiders and opens up a withering suppressive fire, dropping a third of them...
[01:29] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie): ((oops, didn't get that in right order))
[01:29] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Getting to the spot to patch the leak where Dr. Chenier is in position takes longer then he would like. Jack was never truly happy in dull moments anyway. He works quickly and getting reports from the bed sensors asks nemo to get the beds to safety. Adding on comms. "Beds with sleeping kids in them are not good for cover... mobilizing them out of the way. "
[01:31] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) -doppel pants and says "Help jack move those kids out of the line of fire, then set up hides... be ready to kill anything in those passages
[01:31] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Contances suppressive fire not only drops a third of the raiders but brings down a section of wall and ceiling. There is no breach of containment. Yet a thousand years of dust fogs the air making it impossible for anyone to see.
[01:32] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) curses under her breath in Croatian and Cajun French, and Chinese at the results of her "spray and pray" tactics
[01:35] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): After getting more then a few patches in place around the breach Chenier is stationed at... he grumbles on comms. Before patching thru to speakers on the bed. "All non-medical staff aboard this settlement are hereby ordered under penalty of severe and not so quick to come death to stand down... hands over heads and kissing the floor proper like you want to live to see tommorow immediately. Failure to immediately comply has very unhappy results. "
[01:36] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) collapses on the floor and shouts "YEAH! WHAT HE SAID!"
[01:37] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) collects herself and draws her own blaster, crouching behind wreckage and rushes down the hall to help Jack
[01:37] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Switching to his welding finger he adds. "The dust clogging the air filters will clear in two minutes... anyone moving amongst the dust or crawling amongst the dust... or even looking funny at the dust... who does not have their face to the floor will be fired upon."
[01:38] Trish (terry3) is offline.
[01:39] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): unholst
[01:39] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) sees jack behind a knot of raiders and cuts them down with three bursts from her blaster
[01:40] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Slapping the finished job he vents his frustration on the raiders. "All exits are now blocked... there is no ecaping this station as anything less then prisoners for adults firing upon the medical team here to treat those whom have been posioned by radiation sickness. I repeat if you are here then you are sick and if you want to live and see tommorrow... get down stay down.."
[01:41] Delta Nova (daciana.seda) is offline.
[01:41] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Silent comms Dr. Cheneir for the assist. Somewhere along the way back inside and with good vision despite the dust he's aquirred two large blasters for each hand. "Happy and Lucky."
[01:41] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 4
[01:42] Jeannot Fiertze: "We won't hesitate... This is war. DO NOT offer resistance , DO NOT menace us or anyone else or you WILL DIE>"
[01:43] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): What was left of the courageous raiders have been mowed down. Eight women and Four men can be seen to have their hands over thier heads and their lips kissing the floor.
[01:44] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Jack holsters one of his blasters and makes sure at least two of the Blackwell people have eyes on him before he approaches with restraints from a compartment in his leg.
[01:44] D100: Jack Cloudborn rolls 96
[01:44] Jeannot Fiertze runs over to them with plasticuffs with Jack to secure the prisoners' hands
[01:45] Jeannot Fiertze: "Well, just another fucking day in Paradise, huh, Jack?"
[01:46] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) laughs wildly despite herself
[01:47] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Unable to raise his eyebrow with a robot face he raises his volume a bit. "Aha' a couple of these I've seen on bounty lists.. and well this one... " He says as he cuffs a girl in crude salvaged armor. "This one's mother once was nice to me. Hiya Cherie." The woman scowls and grumbles something in a foreign mish mash of languages. Clear amongst the language is the words "Screw you grandpa".
[01:48] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Thats right Johnny... is it thursday or friday... friday we have crumpents with our gruel."
[01:49] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) rouinds the three wakeful kids up from the supply closet they were huddled in... "Cream and strawberries, too?"
[01:51] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "So I'm guessing proximity sensors on those breaching charges... too high for beds and kids but high enough for expected adults. I guess it wasnt the overlord that miffed the space lanes but this lot. Except for a possible grand daughter here' least by insults the rest are yours to take in if you want em' life signs show a dozen adults left in that section back where they came from though. Still more work before the days done. "
[01:53] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) nods... "We've got room for 'em in Ortheris, and then smack into our brig in Blackwell"
[01:53] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): The kids are rounded up out of the supply closet. Having eaten rats and other nigh inedible food for a few years they are uncertain of what cream and strawberries are. They seem to sense the thought and it intrigues them regardless.
[01:54] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) smiles and hands each of them a ration bar from her pack
[01:56] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Allright' if you can scan them to make sure we are only grabbing non locals, and ordinary humans we are good... I suggest Johnny and I if hes amiable take the not so friendly's to holding... Least in this pretty thought you two good ladies can hold down the fort and perhaps talk to grand daughter here about how they got here to begin with..."
[01:56] Jeannot Fiertze lifts the prisoners one by one, by their manacles
[01:57] Jeannot Fiertze nods.. "I got it, Iron Man... you do what you've been doing, saving our lives..." and herds them to the holding cell on Ortheris
[01:57] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Watches Johnny and helps the prisoners up one by one... adding a chain from one to another. The few he notices with injuries he points out and suggests beds.
[01:58] Constance Mirulovic (sweetsweetconnie) helps get the injured prisoners in beds and tends them, making sure they're hemodynamically stable
[01:59] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) tends the worst injured kids and prisoners, and with Connie administers antiradiation drugs to them.. "Good thing we had this stuff on the starships... it's amazing in the way it mends people
[02:00] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Roger that." Turns to Constance. "That was some pretty shooting earlier... i saw ya do' three in one' and briliiant to stir up the dust. Great work. " He gives her a chance to respond before opening a comm to Johnny. "Let the prisoners lead the way I'm guessing their number set the traps when they arrived her for insurance when they came to take the place. Might be more charges.. in their interest to take em down."
[02:02] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) comes back from Ortheris.. one scraggly man in tow.. "here's your mad bomber. A blaster in his ear did wonders for his memory.. I managed to get the code string out of him for those charges.."
[02:04] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Turns to the woman whom called him grandpa. Checks her over for immediate and pressing injury and then gets her some food. "I blink and miracles and wonders appear. Great work Dr. Chenier."
[02:05] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) steps up to the man... "See your friends dead on the floor there? They pissed me off." She placed her blaster up his nose and said "Disarm those mines NOW. If I hear ONE explosion, they'll be wiping you up off the wall."
[02:06] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Thank you for saving our lives, Jack!"
[02:07] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): The scraggly man hurriedly produced a control pad and very deliberately entered the disarm cold, peering around the blaster in de Chenier-doppel's hand
[02:07] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ^code not cold
[02:08] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): Receives another briefing from nemo aboard the newluck. "There's a few locked rooms with no lifesign readings... the whole place needs to be searched but ultimately I'll be here a week or so in the least. The Order has computer programs which gives sleepers the choice and freedom to either return to bed or rejoin civilization. Plus the research work to make sure puppy is permanetly puppy. Bed scans are completed of the settlement. The non raider adults I'm betting are back in that one area. "
[02:09] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((grabbing a quick smoke))
[02:09] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) sighs in relief.. "We'll help you search the area.. and then, I guess we go back in our boxes.. It was fun, Jack."
[02:12] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): holst
[02:14] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): "Roger that' glad we found puppies instead of wolves and just raiders. I've sent a few empty beds down that cooridor to lightly speak to anyone there in case well... raiders are often not nice. Nemo from the newluck is handling that conversation."
[02:15] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): Thanks for the RP, Jack! it was fun! 4 am here and I got gypped on sleep yesterday
[02:15] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): He turns from the kids to the girl who called him grandpa. "Ten things to do at once. "
[02:15] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): "Always"
[02:16] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((np ready for bed myself thanks for the assist on this... was a ton of fun. make sure ya do decontamination and safety quarrantines on the way out.))
[02:18] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ((Always.. Group showers are always such fun :-) ))
[02:18] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((I guess i'll contract black wing to sweep the asteroids for dormant overlord flesh spawn))
[02:18] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ((Right guys for the right jobs))
[02:18] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): (Best part of a coed miltary in starship troopers)
[02:19] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ((Great scene. Denise Richards would have made a great recruiting poster))
[02:19] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((oh forehead girl' yeah i hear that))
[02:20] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ((take care!))
[02:20] Jack Cloudborn (jackofthebean): ((Great rping with you constance, johhnny ) ))
[02:21] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty): ((he liked it, too))
[02:21] Patricia de Chenier (angelpatty) whispers: see you!
