Tabletop Room 6
Tabletop Nexus <TN>
<OOC> Upton says, "Hello"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Hello there, people. My internet has been a little tweaky lately, but hopefully everything will be fine."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "So! Everyone about ready?"
<OOC> Upton says, "Just need Jen to pop back in"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "wow, getting major lag in the room."
Treya has connected.
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "and it's gone now."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Wiiierd"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Oh well."
<OOC> Upton says, "Lag is always weird. Hey Jen"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "So, people. Are we about ready to start then?"
<OOC> Treya says, "sure"
<OOC> Upton says, "Ready as ever"
<OOC> Keisho says, "weee"
<OOC> Keisho says, "Sorry was sidetracked. Im here now."
The Elsa zooms rather aimlessly through space, no particular destination having been specified. The last couple of days have involved Keisho schooling through the network, Upton having many frustrating talks of scientific theory and invention with the physics and basic laws of reality inept Renald, and Treya doing... whatever it is that Treya does on aimless space trips.
Treya sleeps and eats alot really.
Upton also has been installing the electronics hardening he got at the last stop
The stars drift by in a pretty display of lights, unseen by anyone not using a view-screen due to the lack of windows on the sophisticated star-ship. Elsa informs everyone that it is now noon, galactic-standard time.
<OOC> Keisho says, "dances wildly yeaaaa! noon!!! :)"
Treya goes down to rustle up a sandwich.
Upton says while hanging upside down installing something to Renald, "Kid, with your seeming lack of grasp of any of the sciences I just don't get how that gene shuffler of yers work and until Keisho become a boy again I can't take it apart to figure it out.
Keisho says, "Elsa, are there any more stories still circulating on the news vids about me or anyone similar to me?""
Treya, there seems to be many food supplies still left on the ship, but with four sandwich-eaters aboard, sandwich supplies have begun to run short.
Treya says, "...Elsa did someone eat all the peanut butter?"
<OOC> Keisho says, "nooooo!"
<OOC> Keisho says, "all you can make is a jelly and egg salad sandwich"
<OOC> Keisho says, "giggle"
<OOC> Upton says, "With sandwich supllies running out guess who'll offer to cook ;)"
Elsa beeps. "The number of vid-casts with information on anyone matching the description of the boy Keisho have begun to decrease in number. It seems the audiance is losing interest."
Upton pages: Should I make an electronics roll?
Keisho says, "Oh good... there are none for anyone that looks like me I hope.""
Keisho makes a face. "STill all the agencies probably have my number."
Elsa beeps into the kitchen. "The last known crew member to consume the peanut butter is Miss Keisho. Would you like vid-records of all known consumption of the peanut butter in the last two days?
You paged Upton with 'Sure, make a roll'
Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 2 and 4.
Upton pages: 6 under
Upton pages: And I belive this falls under my specialty
Treya says, "...yes please."
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol detective treya."
You paged Upton with 'the upgrade goes along smoothly. It's alot of work, but you actually manage to get it done very quickly, finishing within the day that you start.'
<OOC> Treya says, "God help you if you use too much!"
Upton pages: Lets assume I started working on it very early today and am just finishing up?
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol"
One of Elsa's maintenance bots scoots in with a small vid-screen, which begins to display footage from the kitchen. It shows Keisho making a sandwich, skipping to the last known crew member to eat before that. Reynald puts peanut butter in celery, Upton makes himself a sandwich in between working on something, Keisho just scoops some peanut butter out with a spoon and starts licking it... it goes on like that.
You paged Upton with 'upton - Sure.'
Treya says, "...."
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol getting me into trouble."
Treya says, "Save the last one to disc and give me the disc."
<OOC> Keisho says, "sorry treya there was no frosting."
<OOC> Treya says, "Oh you're in for it now. XD"
Treya says, "Where's Keisho at now?"
<OOC> Keisho says, "I danced naked on the table while eating it too!"
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol teasing of course"
Upton looks down or rather up, give his perch, at Renald, "I hope ya've been paying attention on how a real techie works kid, cause I am almost done with this
<OOC> Treya says, "I need 15 minutwes or so"
<OOC> Treya says, "back asap"
Treya has disconnected.
<OOC> Keisho says, "kay kay bummer."
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol 15 minute break The call of children I guess."
<OOC> Upton says, "Might as well focus on those who really have not been focused on in the mean time unless Skull has a different idea/"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "BAck"
Keisho smiles. "Elsa while I'm like this call me keiko. Thanks for all your help."
<OOC> Keisho says, "treya had to go for 15 min she said."
"Acknowledged, Miss Keisho."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Make that keiko. Blaughr"
"Miss Keiko is currently located on the bridge." Elsa informs Treya.
Upton looks around for Renald hope he hasn't wondered off.
Renald is located within his lab, doing mad sciency stuff. Which in this case consists of napping, which he insists is an extreamly important part of the genius process.
<OOC> Keisho says, "no worries."
Keisho says, "Elsa?""
Upton was working on the last of the electronics located in the lab area in an inconvenient place which necessitated Upton to hang upside down, "Dagnabbit, he feel asleep again...
"Yes, Miss keisho?"
Keisho says, "Do you have thoughts, and feelings? Are you sentient in your own right?""
Renald snores lightly, not exactly the rumbling mad genius snores one would expect, more like something someone could tune out with little effort.
Upton finishes up his work then right himself and lowers himself to the floor
"No Miss Keiko. I merely emulate such things to better facilitate communication."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "I keep saying Keisho on reflex. Bliggidy blaugh!"
Keisho says, "Oh. You seem very nice and helpful. (its ok)"
Keisho says, "Its almost like your a real person.""
<OOC> Upton says, "Hmmm, I wander what it would take for me to make elsa a class six AI"
"That would be my desired function. I am pleased to hear I have achieved this. Or to be more accurate, I emulate pleasure at hearing this."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Alot of money... and more importantly, convincing Treya it's a good idea to have a ship that can decide she's wrong."
<OOC> Upton says, "Or is she not already, bwahahahaha"
Keisho says, "Oh. Well you I hope at some level it really is pleasurable.""
<OOC> Upton says, "I assume the genr shuffler is hear and un plugged."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "It certainly is, just lieing there and not exactly hooked up. You're still not sure how it works or how to use it, but if you dinked around with it you might figure it out. Then again, it may turn you into a tuna sandwich, you really can't tell."
Keisho continues working on class work. Checks to see if there are any messages for her. Or for that matter Keisho.
Upton decides to wake Renald up by turning his helmet into a gong.
Keisho, a rather pleasent reply from Kent is in your inbox. He mentions that his family has left the planet again, though he's not sure where they're off too this time. He hopes to see you again as well.
Keisho smiles to herself. "Hes nice even if he is a bit dorky."
<OOC> Upton says, "Namely by hitting it with something metal."
Renald jumps to a sitting position with a "GAH!" immediatly followed by "Fruit emulator!" shortly followed by "No, no, that's a stupid idea, we have plenty of real fruit."
Upton says, "Wake up sunshine. I have a project for you."
Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...
Database checkpoint complete.
"Hmmm?" He seems to regain his bearings a little as he stares up at you, Upton.
Keisho logs onto Keishos account to see if theres anything there.
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "This would be an account Keisho had before the Elsa and everything, or after?"
Upton says, "Well, I want you to modify your gene shuffler so that it uses far less power to do what it does, lets say to something like that power cell oh mine can put out safely so we can use it while were still underway cause I thing Keisho has been girly long enough and I don't want use to be in space with the reactor shut down. You think you can do it?"
<OOC> Keisho says, "before"
He scratches his helmet. "Um, I dunno, maybe. I mean, the problem with shuffling genes was the enormous amount of power required, genes are pretty stubborn. Doing it with less might be possible, but it'd be a pretty weak shuffle. Might not even finish...."
<OOC> Keisho says, "sorry just saw the question"
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol not to mention treya would kill him."
Keisho, your account has been completely emptied except for one message, labled 'Return'. It looks pretty ominous.
Keisho says, "Elsa can you safely scan that message for anything dangrous?""
Upton says, "Isn't there a way you can make it more focuses so it would require less energy to do what it normally does?"
Keisho says, "I don't want to open it if it would hazard you.""
"Scanning. Tracking bug encountered. Unknown type. System sector OE5R6xFFFF compromised. Quarentining sector. Complete. Message is not safe, commencing purge of sector."
Keisho says, "Alright. Get rid of it.""
Keisho says, "Close out of the system.""
Keisho says, "Better not go in there again.""
Renald looks confused again but almost gets it since you've been over this with him so many times. "Um, the...range of effect? It, really doesn't effect the power use, other then minimally, I'd have to... AHA!" The boy flicks his helmet as he is struck with a burst of inspiration.
Keisho Sighs. "Guess they are still after me."
Upton says, "Is that a you got it AHA or a me duck for cover AHA?"
You say, "If I could simply implant a smaller device into the subject to encourage gene-shuffling from within rather then forced from without, the genes should be alot more willing to compromise! Of course!""
Keisho says, "On the news scan theres no indication they are after Keiko?"
He begins slapping things around, and electricity arcs dangerously around his work bench
"Negative." Elsa responds.
Keisho says, "Maybe Im safer this way.""
Upton blinks, "So instead of a Gene Shuffling bomb you are going to make a gene shuffling taser?
Keisho says, "ARe there any reports... in the news... or outside the news of captures of Keisho?""
"Um, no, not exactly," he responds, still working like mad. "The whole thing would have to go in. I haven't exactly figured out how it will come out yet...."
"Negative. The remaining vid-casts still call for a search for the missing boy."
Upton says, "While would the whole thing have to go in?"
<OOC> Upton says, "Er why"
Upton scratches his head while he watches Renald work
Keisho says, "Alright... Elsa I found a being in a tank.... it looked like me... well before I changed... it had my face and I was mentally linked to it... it just wanted to die... Could you do a search on cloning experimentation? Also.. you know of my ablities... Could you do a search on cloning expermementation coupled with... uhh... mental abilities?""
"So as to buddy-up with the genes, get all paly with em, before doing the shuffling. Maybe slip some endorphins into the system so they aren't quite sure what's going on. Then it can accomplish it's objective!"
"Yes, however, such experiments are highly illegal, and information would not be available on the public network."
Upton says, "So in stead of a big ball of multi uses your going to have something BB sizes and single use?"
"Uh, yeah, something like that. Now, I wonder, injection, oral or nasal entry...?"
Keisho says, "Ahh ok... I think I'm the subject of such experments... Can you track back in the news vids to the first location to broadcast the search for the missing boy Keisho? See if subsequent newsvids radiate around that location?"
"Affirmative. This may take a few moments."
Upton says, "Injections, possibly with ranged deliverly, like a compressed air gun. I have a nice design for a umbrella gun used to injected a small iridium alloy pellet filled with poison that was made back in the 20th ."
"Neat. It's still going to take a rather large amount of power... maybe a whole 1.8 jigawatts."
<OOC> Upton says, "How much energy does the human body produce?"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Certainly no 1.8 jigawatts! That would take a bolt of lightning!"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Or a plutonium-based nuclear reaction!"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "...Nobody gets it do they? Dang. You guys need to watch Back to the Future again."
<OOC> Keisho says, "I got it. :)"
<OOC> Upton says, "I was thinking of a smart allic comment to make ICly"
<OOC> Upton says, "Got it"
Upton says, "Your last name wouldn't happen to be brown would it?"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Ah. Well, I'm just impatient."
<OOC> Keisho says, "ehh I was putting some chili in the nuker. Put it on 1.8 jigawatts."
<OOC> Keisho says, "so reacted late."
Upton says, "Never mind, 20th century pop culture joke."
Renald continues o work feverishly.
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "I really think we're gonna have to wait for Treya to come back at this point before anything important can happen"
Upton looks to see what sort of present technology that could fit into a BB and provide that amount of power qwithout killing the subject.
<OOC> Keisho says, "ok"
Not exactly cheap, you could get a miniature plasma-cell.... and leave it up to Renald to figure out how to not kill the person.
Keisho says, "Elsa what does Treya like to eat if she had her choice in the matter?""
<OOC> Keisho says, "mmm guess you cant answer that without trey ahere to ask"
<OOC> Keisho says, "never mind lol"
Upton says, "Well all we need for the individual pellets is a miniature plasma-cell."
Upton says, "However, you going to have to figure a away for the power not to kill the person and a away for the pellet to be ejected"
Upton looks at his rigged power cell and sees if he can figure if he can use that for raw materials.
<OOC> Upton says, "Does the cell contain the right type of plasma?"
It's possible but you might just blow it up. You don't exactly have the properly sized containment for a miniature plasma-cell either.
Upton says, "Hmmm, does the power supply have to be integral to the pellet or can we thing of a remote power transfer devise..."
"Well, from the inside I can see stuff happening, but channeling 1.8 Jigawatts into someone from the outside sounds kind of... explosive."
<OOC> Keisho says, "woot"
Treya has connected.
<OOC> Keisho says, "and I repeat Woot!"
Treya, Elsa has given you the disk containing the evidence....
Upton has a brilliant idea and bring up some old schematics of his made by Tesla, "Not if you can figure out how to miniaturized an implement this guys designs for a relatively safe wireless power transfer system." print them out and show them to to Renald, "He was more your style of inventor anyways.
Treya takes it to wherever Keisjo's at.
Keisho says, "Let me know what you come up with Elsa on that radial search.""
<OOC> Upton says, "Introducing Renald to the works of Nikola Tesla. I can't believe I thought of it."
<OOC> Treya says, "I don't even know who that is."
<OOC> Keisho says, "made the tesla coil... ever seen like in frankenstein movies with the arch climbing up between two towers? Those are tesla coils I think"
<OOC> Treya says, "ahh"
<OOC> Upton says, "Just one of his many inventions."
Renald looks at the works. "ooooooooooooooh. This guy is.... hmmm. Well, it's a bit outdated, but still... interesting." He immediatly ceases all work on the object as he pours over the pages.
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "He also had very interesting theories on electricity and the like. People basically thought he was a hack at the time."
<OOC> Treya says, "Boring science nerd, gotcha. XD"
Treya, you find keisho on the bridge.
Upton says, "If you can up date his work and apply it to your ideas then we won't need many small power cells just one big remote one."
<OOC> Keisho says, "I think he also invented a ac generator but could be wrong... actually he was flamboyant and slightly outside the normal nerd group so that they ostrasized him :)"
Treya slides the disc into the console he's at. "What's this?"
Keisho sits on the bridge gazing into the monitor talking ot Elsa.
<OOC> Upton says, "We was also for many practical purpose the protype mad scientist."
"Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm." Renald's head tilts to a rather uncomfortable looking angle as he stares at some of the papers
Keisho says, "What?" Gazes at Treya's disc. "Ummm I'm eating peanut butter.""
<OOC> Upton says, "brb"
Treya says, "How are you eating peanut butter?"
Keisho says, "It looks like a spoon. Its good that way you should try it.""
Treya says, "It looks like three times more peanut butter then is needed for a sandwich."
<OOC> Keisho says, "good thing im not male you would have ran out of peanut butter 3 days earlier."
Keisho says, "We are rationing peanut butter?" She blinks."
Treya says, "It's my favorite."
Keisho says, "I didn't know.""
Keisho says, "Are we out?""
Treya says, "You had three spoon fulls."
Keisho says, "I like peanut butter too.""
Keisho blushes. "ITs good!"
Treya says, "..."
<OOC> Upton says, "back."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "now this is entertainment."
Keisho says, "I'm sorry... I didn't know that there wasn't enough peanut butter.""
<OOC> Upton says, "Ok, 1 I left out the death ray designs 2 I forgot about them and left them in"
Upton rolls 1d2 and gets 2.
<OOC> Upton says, "Oooops."
Treya says, "That's because you ate it all."
Keisho says, "I couldnt have eaten it all.""
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Oh, that's healthy."
<OOC> Keisho says, "illogical addults."
Treya says, "The crazy kid had about a spoonful on celery, and hee-haw had A sandwich."
Keisho says, "If Id known the last of it was that bottle I wouldn't have eatten it at all.""
The video on the screen gets to Keisho's last spoonfull as she looks the spoon dry, getting the last bits off with her teeth slowly.
Treya says, "...go to the training room and run 10 laps."
Keisho says, "Whaaa?"
Treya says, "You heard me."
Upton looks through is Tesla plans again and realizes something, "Oh Jesus H, Christ...
Keisho says, "But mooooooom!""
Treya says, "20 laps and never call me that again."
Keisho frowns. "I didn't mean to deprive you of your peanut butter."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "brb"
Treya says, "20 laps."
Keisho Stands up and begins to head to the training room.
Treya goes to make a turkey sandwich grumbling about PB thieves.
Keisho sticks out her tongue behind Treya's back.
Treya says, "30 laps, I saw that."
<OOC> Keisho says, "it was behind your back. lol"
<OOC> Treya says, "Mother's see everything."
<OOC> Treya says, "It's fact."
<OOC> Keisho says, "oh well your looking out for me dont want it to go to my butt lol"
Keisho Scowls and heads to the PT room and strips off her blouse and skirt and begins to run.
Treya takes her sandwich there to supervise.
Keisho mumbling under her breath the whole while as she bounces over the track.
Treya says, "I'dve warn a traning bra myself."
Keisho stops. "I don't have a training bra."
Treya says, "Well lament on that while you run 27 more laps."
Keisho says, "Or much else. I'm kinda new at this.""
Keisho scowls and begins running again mentally lambasting adults.
Treya munches on her sandwich while she watches, adjusting the terrain on the track to hilly.
Keisho begins to have to work harder panting as she curses.
Treya says, "I hope that's not foul language assaulting my ears."
Keisho says, "Of course not, I am the ideal dutiful daughter..." Pant pant pant."
Treya sets it to rain too. "Add 5 more laps for insinuation."
Keisho blinks. "Mooom!"
Treya says, "10 for using the word."
Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...
Database checkpoint complete.
Treya says, "You're up to 31."
Keisho continues running "Whatever!"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "brb some more. Blaugh"
Treya heads over to her own practice station.
Upton decides to leave Renald alone for a bit before an outburst would let him know about the Death ray and hears yelling coming from the PT room.
Keisho Continues running getting tired as she runs... her run turning more into a trudging jog.
Upton says, "Afternoon Captian, I'd like to report that I finished the hardening upgrades and even tried getting that kid Renald to do something constuctive."
Treya is currently shooting the heads off of practice bots. "Uh huh."
Keisho gazes over at Treya as she jogs past the station. "Love you anyway." She smiles sweetly as she rounds back around another curve.
Treya turns and shoots a rubber bullet at Kei's retreating rear end.
<OOC> Treya says, "Them suckers hurt too. XD"
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol need a roll here"
Treya rolls 1d6 and gets 5.
<OOC> Keisho says, "takes 2 to tango :)"
<OOC> Treya says, "I think that hits...I honestly have no idea. XD"
<OOC> Treya says, "I need a 2 to hit you? No way XD"
<OOC> Keisho says, "I think no no I mean it takes 2d6 for everhting dont it?"
<OOC> Treya says, "I think that's just cause I shoot 2 guns usually."
<OOC> Treya says, "eh"
Treya rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 6.
<OOC> Keisho says, "oh."
<OOC> Treya says, "...I like my single 5. XD"
Upton says, "I asked him to try to remake his Gene shuffler so it can operate independently of Elsa's power source so we can get keisho back to himself while were underway."
<OOC> Keisho says, "you shot elsa in the eye?"
<OOC> Keisho says, "hell with it."
Upton yelps as a rubber bullet hit him in the forhead...
Keisho lets out a EEEEP! as her butt stings and runs faster for a few.
Treya says, "That's not your business."
Treya goes back to shooting her bots.
<OOC> Upton says, "Boxcars is a fumble..."
<OOC> Keisho says, "ehh... she rolled a 5 on her first 6"
<OOC> Keisho says, "decided to go with it."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "All attack rolls are 2d6!"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "I am also back!"
<OOC> Treya says, "Dun dun DUUN! Either way I don't care. It produces a desireable affect for me. XD"
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol"
<OOC> Upton says, "Well I would like it to hit me cause it would be funny."
<OOC> Keisho says, "wee that your back"
Keisho continues jogging as she passes the station again she sticks her tongue out at upton then giggles slightly.
The bullet bounces off Upton's forehead into keisho's butt, which absorbs it's kinetic force causing it to fall to the ground
Upton rubs his forehead, "Anyways that;s my report.
Treya says, "Report noted."
<OOC> Keisho says, "see we needed a dm to resolve that ;)"
Upton then leaves to watch Renald and make sure he works on the project he had for him.
Keisho continues aroudn the track again. "I am.... sorry... that... there... is.. no more... peanut butter..."
Treya says, "I sure would be if I were you by now."
Elsa suddenly chimes in. "Vessle incoming from sector 208 Alpha. On route to intercept our position."
Treya says, "Vessels ID?"
Keisho says, "Eeep.!" She stops running and grabs her skirt and blouse."
Treya says, "Uh uh, you keep running."
Keisho says, "Not if we are under attack I will run another 12 later. I promise.""
"Vessle has no ID. Probable analysis concludes that the vessle may belong to space pirates."
Treya snorts and heads to the bridge. "Open a line."
Keisho slips on her skirt and blouse and follows Treya onto the bridge.
<OOC> Upton says, "Does Elsa inform me of the situation while I am going backl to watch Renald."
The screen soon opens up a communication, a man of about 25, with a spiked mohawk sits in the captains chair of his vessel. "Hey all! We're here to take yer stuff! Wanna give it up without getting blown up?" He second in command sits in a chair nearby, wearing a big wooly sweathsirt that almost seems to swallow him up. He looks into the screen curiously.
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "It was a shipwide announcement"
Treya says, "What "stuff" are you hoping to take?"
Keisho says, "Nice haircut. Wonder if I can get a date." She giggles."
Treya says, "You shut up."
Upton heads to the Bridge.
The man shrugs. "All of it." His second in command stares a little harder and goes "Uhhhh..."
Treya says, "Is that so?"
Upton says, "What's this, Pirates?"
"Yeah, pretty much." "Uh, hey captain..." The other guy starts, but the captain waves him off. "Shut it man."
Treya grins. "Well sure! C'mon aboard!"
Keisho blinks. "Ooookay. Moms lost it."
The man blinks and pauses. He was obviously not expecting this answer. His second keeps bugging him, "Dude, really."
Treya says, "Elsa power down the engines."
"Acknowledged." The buzz of the engines slows and ceases.
<OOC> Upton says, "Am I aware of what sort of internal security systems the elsa has?"
The man in the chair blinks again. "Eh, okay." "Cripes, dude! She's the chick on the send-out man!" "Wha?! Uh." The captain hits a button on his chair and the connection is cut.
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Not unless Treya told you."
Keisho says, "Whaaa was that?""
Treya frowns. "Elsa are there any documents on me filtering?"
"There are no documents locatable on the network. Vessel has begun moving closer."
Keisho says, "Which chick?""
Treya rubs her chin a bit. "Prep all internal weaponry."
Upton says, "Shall I prepare a little surprise for our guests or do ya already have it handles."
Treya says, "Oh not only is it handled but I'm gonna make a bundle too."
Keisho says, "I'll help captain."
Upton thinks a momment, "Say Elsa, is there anything out on our little Keiko?
Keisho says, "What do you want me to do?"
Treya says, "Yup, help by going to your cabin."
Keisho says, "But someones got to keep you safe!""
"Ship has begun docking-tube procedure. Shall I authorize access?"
Treya says, "Please do Elsa."
Treya heads to the corridor near the tube. "Put all weapons on standby."
"Nevative." Elsa responds to Upton. There is some noice vibrating in the hull as the machinery begins it's job.
Keisho Follows after Treya.
"Docking-tube connection complete. All weapons on standby. Opening hatch."
Treya says, "Yoube silent."
Keisho says, "Yess mom.""
The hatch opens and the Spike-haired captain enters the door. "Allright lady..." he begins
Treya says, "...Elsa train all weapons on the good captain."
Treya steps out with her own guns drawn.
Keisho Stands back behind Treya.
Upton follows Treya out and grins, "Welcome aboard partner.
There is some audible clicking as unseen weaponry moves
"Aubidy ub ub ub erb." He manages to say, before putting his hands in the air.
Treya says, "Ahh that's what I like to hear. So, how many on your ship?"
"Ible ub, erk." HE replies intelligently. The second in command, just behind him, says "15. Please don't shoot us, we kinda wanna talk, maybe."
Treya says, "Kinda wanna talk maybe says the folk tryin to rob me?"
"That was before we knew who you were."
Treya says, "And who am I?"
Keisho peers at them from behind Treya.
Keisho says, "meaner and badder than them." She giggles."
"Uh, Treya Harker, worth 6.8 mil to the Arkturan government recently, or so the send out to their elite networks say. We sorta intercepted a data-pad at one point. Um...."
Treya says, "6.8 mil? Now that's a nice bounty."
Upton whistles, "I wonder how much they want for me...
Keisho says, "27 creds."
The Akrturan government is the one that Karel works for, of course.
Keisho giggles again.
Treya says, "You wanna talk, talk."
Keisho says, "AT least they aren't after me." She mutters."
"Yeah, uh. Well, we kinda wanted to, maybe talk to you. Cause, you know, you obviously pissed off the Arkturan's alot, and well, we hate them. They took over or wiped out the planets of everyone on the crew, so you're sort of an... inspiration. It says you blew up the Hassan.
You say, ""
Treya says, "Well...not UP, but apart sure."
"Iga thab ern" Says the captain, who still has Treya's guns, as well as all the ship's weapons, pointed at him.
Keisho says, "Bastards they were.""
Upton says, "Thanks to me."
Treya doesn't seem to be tiring either.
"Well, uh. We maybe wanted to know if you'd... maybe.. talk to the crew? It'd help out moral alot... life is pretty hard out here for planet-less people.. some of em are younger then that girl.
he indicates Keisho.
Treya says, "Right, and I know you're all not going to jump me for the bounty becaaaause?"
Keisho says, "Your not pirates from choice?""
The captain finally seems to get some conciousness back into his eyes as he says seriously. "We'd never take anything from the Arkturan's! Filthy bastards!"
Keisho, the second glances at you. "No, not really. But planet-less vagabonds have a rather limited number of career options..."
Keisho says, "Thats sad.""
Treya says, "Elsa have the bots set up a weapons net at the doorway. Your fella's wanna talk they can coe over here."
He shrugs. "We deal. But some of us don't do as well as others." He looks up at Treya. "Really?!" He says as Elsa speaks "Confirmed."
Upton thinks of what place on the ship would make a good auditorioum.
The only place big enough is the cargo bay. It has some of Renald's old junk in it still, but is currently rather empty.
Treya says, "You can head to the cargo bay, lotta space. Anyone brings a weapon on Elsa WILL shoot them dead."
Keisho "Moms on the mean side." She nods.
Treya says, "You're up to 37 laps again."
Keisho smiles at Treya her eyes gazing at her happily. "Its worth it."
Treya says, "Go run."
Upton says, ""
"Sure! I'll be right back!" The second heads back toward the ship. The captain seems to have lapsed a little again. "You maybe, not point at me, gun please?"
Keisho says, "Oh no I got to see this!""
Treya says, "I SHOULD just shoot you for even threatening me."
Upton says, "Want me to keep tabs on our resident mad scientist Captain?"
Treya says, "Nope he's fine."
"Me not hurt, just get stuff, food feed guys not want diegrrglble..." he degenerates into incoherancy from there
Treya slides her weapons away.
The man collapses onto his but almost lifelessly, then slowly slides away down the tube before getting up and running back in.
Upton says, "What would you like me to do then captain?"
Treya says, "Something that involves NOT annoying me."
You paged Treya with 'You know, you could set Elsa to assign Keisho 15 laps everytime she calls you mom.'
Upton says, "Yes Maam"
Treya says, "Elsa...keep tabs on Keisho. Anytime she calls me mother add 15 laps."
Upton heads to the lab anyways since she seem to have everything under control.
Keisho says, "Can I call you sis?""
Treya says, "You can call me ma'am or captain."
Keisho laughs. "Never had a big sister."
Keisho says, "Oh fine.""
Treya says, "Good."
Keisho says, "Mommy.""
Treya says, "How many does she have now Elsa?"
Keisho says, "Wait thats not the term mother.""
Fairly soon some people begin entering the ship from the other vessle. They vary in age from around 13 to maybe 20, the captain is obviously the oldest. Two or three aren't even human, obviously from one of the fringe planets in the out rims where other sentient life has been encountered.
Treya raises her eyebrows at that.
Keisho smirks at Treya. "You were very specific."
"Miss keiko now has 53 laps."
Treya says, "Elsa's a smart girl."
Keisho says, "Oh fine."
Keisho says, "Your mean sometimes.""
Elsa beeps again. "All maternal terms of endearment are synonyms for the term 'mom'."
Keisho says, "Thats ok I love you anway.""
Treya says, "I know. Alright you, sweater guy. What the hell d'yopu want me to say?"
"I.. I dunno." He looks a bit abashed. "Maybe, maybe tell em why you hate the Arkturans so much.... or how you blew up the Hassan. Or... just give them some encouragement that things will work out..."
Treya heads into the cargo bay with a slight frown.
The crew members all look a little worn-out and not in the best shape, though healthy enough not to be termed starving. Most seem rather excited at the moment though, some light shining even in the eyes of the most defected ones as they look at Treya.
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "dejected that is."
Keisho smiles. "Go captain!"
Upton will meander into the cargo bay after making sure Renald is working on the project he asked him too.
Treya says, "So...howdy folks. ...I've never really been a fan of talking. More the shootin type myself. But uh...well...that fella over there wants me to tell you things arew gonna be ok, everything'll work out."
Treya says, "The truth is, it won't."
The crowd looks a bit shocked at that, the excited murmuring stops.
Treya says, "The Arkturan's are always gonna be there hanging over our heads. We can blow up a ship of theirs a day, and three more'll come on out."
Treya says, "Life is hard, nothing ever comes easy. We work our fingers to the bone everyday, just trying to get by for another sunrise."
The audiance seems a bit dejected at that, a few biting their lips, one or two look near to crying.
Treya says, "But...what matters is how you spend the time waiting for those sunrises. You can sign up with the Ark's, work for them. Life'll be easier but you won't be free."
Treya says, "Or you can head for the border planets, find someplace that hasn't been touched yet. Settle down, make a home for yourself and hope they don't come callin."
There is some quiet murmuring at this. Apparently it's an idea that has been considered somewhat before.
Treya says, "So...life's tough. Nothin comes easy to anyone. You want something, you go out and you get it. Don't go waiting for it to come to you. Cause it won't."
The audience is mostly silent as they absorb Treya's words.
Treya says, "So...uh...right. That's it then."
Silence hangs in the cargo room like a shroud.
Keisho ponders. " Nothings forever... not even the arkturians! Just by refusing to knuckle under you are winning against them. So ummm Live free... live well... if you die... die free.
After a moment, the captain stands up. "You heard the lady, she's done. Get goin!"
Treya eyes Keisho a bit. "Right...hey...uh...sweater guy?"
The crew mutters to themselves, as they leave, seemingly ignoring Keisho's comment as they march back to their ship
Upton says, "Well I could relate the story of how I disabled the Hasson so Tryea would blow it apart and get away?"
The second in command snaps out of the realm of thought he was in as he looks at Treya. "Uh?"
Treya says, "You got any peanut butter?"
Upton, the crowd is allready moving out. It seems they were only interested in Treya.
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol I was going to ask them that."
"Oh uh. Sure. I suppose it's the least we could do... I think the speach you just gave them maybe did more then just saying it would be okay. I'll... be right back with it."
Keisho says, "Elsa could you print out a picture of Keisho?"
Treya shrugs. "Thanks buddy, I'm dying for it."
Keisho goes to a nearby monitor.
The sweater guy heads back to his ship. Elsa gives you the picture of Keisho going around on the vid-casts
Keisho takes a picture.
The second in command shows back up with a jar of peanut butter. "Um, it's not name-brand, but it's all we've got."
Treya says, "How're you folks for food and the like?"
Keisho says, "Sir do you know anything abou tthis guy?" hands the picture to the second in command."
"Well, we're always struggling for mroe, but we manage to get by... uh" he turns to Keisho. "Isn't that the missing kid in the vid-casts? Haven't seen him on the news for awhile... you looking for him? We haven't seen him. We woulda brought him back if we had, we could use some honest money..."
Keisho says, "Had to wonder.""
He looks at the mark under your eye. "You his sister...?
Treya heads down and gathers up some bins, loading them with food and bringing them back, a few warm clothes too.
Keisho says, "Something like that."
Keisho says, "I was hoping to find him."
Treya dumps them on the ground. "Here, I want my bins back though."
"huh." He turns around to see Treya with the supplies. "Woah! Um. I... well..." He looks like he doesn't want to accept it out of pride, but then he thinks better of it and just bows deeply, a form of respect that is fairly universal. "Thank you."
He grabs the supplies and takes them to the ship so he can empty the bins and return them.
Treya shrugs. "Name the new planet Treya for me."
Keisho laughs. "Or call the planet Mom."
Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...
Database checkpoint complete.
Treya says, "You go run laps, excitements over."
"You have now accumulated 67 laps, Miss Keiko."
Keisho says, "Wait I didnt call Treya mom... I just suggested a new planet be named that.""
Treya says, "Context was used, go run."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Honestly, trying to use loop holes with a thinking computer."
Keisho says, "Fine!...""
<OOC> Keisho says, "lol well I didnt call her mom. :)"
Upton chuckles a moment and then says, "It amazes how little news filters from out here back to Terra. I haven't even heard o the Arkturans until after I met you now I see how extensive and bad they are.
The bins are returned and you are thanked once more before the vessel unattaches it's docking tube and moves on it's way.
Keisho She heads back to the PT room and begins to run again.
Indeed, the Arkturan government has little to no holds back in the sectors closer to Terra as the Terran government is too powerful to risk hostilities with.
Treya goes...and has a peanut butter sandwich happily. "Elsa I gave away the better half of our food, where's the nearest station."
Upton says, "So captain what will my punishment be for going over your head and giving that Renald kid a protect?"
As a result, little news about either government's activities circulate in the sectors owned bu the others.
Treya shrugs. "That Renald kid knows who the captain is, you can talk till your blue in the face as long as you're not talkin at me."
"The nearest station is Gardabald station, two days travel."
Treya says, "set a course."
"Acknowledged." Elsa sets on her way to the space station.
Upton blinks, "Still miffed about the Plastique, Maam?
Treya says, "Nope, you talk too much. Not a trait I like in a person."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "This seems like a good place to put our game to an end given my earlier bed-time from work. Sorry if anyone was looking forward to playing later."
<OOC> Treya says, "Nah I'm fine. XD"
Upton nods and walks away.
<OOC> Keisho says, "no worries look forward to next week :)"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Also, I will ask about likes and dislikes, as always."
<OOC> Treya says, "I liked being idolized. XD"
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Although I never seem to get any dislikes."
<OOC> Keisho says, "was fun. :) lol no dislikes Well Treya... but thats a given ;)"
<OOC> Upton says, "No dislikes. Like jsut aboput eveything. Am I really play Upton as a chatterbox?"
<OOC> Treya says, "You play everyone as one."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Kind of, but Treya is sensitive. She seems like the type who doesn't like anyone who talks more then she does."
<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Hehe. Allright, I'm out, good game everyone."
<OOC> Treya says, "Well I'm off!"
<OOC> Keisho says, "huggles be well"
<OOC> Upton says, "Be well"
<OOC> Treya says, "Night peeps."
