Tabletop Room 6





Obvious exits:

Tabletop Nexus <TN>

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Wootlah... to the max."

<OOC> Upton bounces, "YIPPIE!

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Right. Looks like we'll be playing without Teya'Vra today.... and if Tey keeps failing to show up, that spot in the game might open back up.... but we'll see"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Anyway."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "So, how is everyone doing and such things?"

<OOC> Treya says, "Kinda tired. XD"

<OOC> Upton says, "I've been well."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Well, when everyone is ready we can begin."

<OOC> Treya says, "I'm fine."

<OOC> Upton says, "I'm ready"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Good, good."

<OOC> Keisho says, "hi hi sorry didnt see you in"

<OOC> Keisho says, "figured I would get an im :)"

After your rather disastrous foray into the Arkturan bounty hunter's escape route, a buzzing sound emenates from Teya'Vra's clothes, likely an alert from a communicator. He... or she... whatever Teya is, isn't very forthcoming with information about who may or may not be trying to contact... I'll just use the male pronoun; him. He excuses himself, and moves outside the room, not leaving the impression that he'll be back soon. You are left to your own devices. ...The Elsa should be resupplied by now.

Treya says, "Elsa keep an eye on our new guest."

Keisho "Are you alright Treya?" Drops the net to the ground after helping Treya out.

From afar, Upton is currently watching over Renold.

Upton, as Renald works on the device, you are left with little to do.

Treya says, "I'm fine."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Pssst, Treya. You're not on Elsa right now.... cause we left you still on the market deck. Sorry not to be specific."

<OOC> Treya says, "Oh. Alright."

Treya says, "I'm fine. I want back on my damn ship and off this hole."

Keisho "So what do we do now?" He eyes the pit with spikes he helped Treya out of.

Keisho says, "Alright. Not going after the sneak then.""

Treya says, "No, I don't fancy anymore death traps."

You paged Keisho with ''He'?'

Keisho pages: well hes a she now but still mentally a he lol

Keisho says, "Alright Captain. I'm glad you weren't hurt.""

You paged Keisho with 'you've just been using she for the last few sessions, so i had to wonder.'

Keisho pages: ok :)

It isn't hard to get back to Elsa, assuming you don't make any other stops on the station.

Upton goes about doing routine maintance.

Keisho follows along with the Captain heading back to the ship.

Treya does not.

Keisho says, "You think he just wanted your bounty?""

Treya says, "That's what bounty hunters generally want."

Upton is re-securing the base of the captain's seat into the floor of the Elsa as you enter. Elsa chimes "Hello, Treya. Greetings, Ms. Keisho."

Keisho says, "Thank you Elsa. Call me Keiko while I'm like this.""

<OOC> Keiko says, "there lol"


Treya says, "H'llo Elsa, get ready to get us off this dump."

Upton looks up, "Howdy Cpatian , Howdy Keiko, how did the resupply trip go?

Keiko says, "Its all on board I think.""

"Acknowledged. I have also recieved a vid-com that meets your specifications to avoid immediate deletion."

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Upton says, "Want me to go do and inventory Captian?"

Treya says, "I did inventory when I bought it all..."

<OOC> Keiko says, "elsa was talking to trey about the vidcom?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Yes indeed."

Treya says, "Well play it for me."

"Acknowledged." Elsa acknowledges. Perhaps it's time she was programmed to respond with a different confirmation.

<OOC> Keiko says, "Reprograms her to respond with yes mom. ;)"

Treya doesn't mind Elsa-speak and heads to her quarters.

Upton goes to check on Renald and see what other maintance he can do

<OOC> Upton says, "Hmmm, I wonder how diffcult it would be for me to reprogram Elsa to speak with a Texas accebnt?"

Keiko Sighs cause she was curious as to whats on the vid com. She shrugs and heads to the Galley and makes a peanut butter samich.

<OOC> Treya says, "I wonder how difficult it would be to survive multiple gunshots to the face."

Upton will go to a console and see if Elsa's computer and programming needs any maintenance and to see how much access he has on her.

<OOC> Treya says, "He will discover he has very little indeed XD"

The view screen in your quarters displays an image of a uniformed man, with a long gray moustache and shoulder length gray hair. His face has a rather serious, but somewhat pleased look on it as he begins. "Hello. You're an accomplished bounty hunter if you recieved this message... or some damn hack scamp, in which case you won't really be interested in what I'm about to say. I'm the sheriff of the Fogear Defensive Coalition, we keep order in this little bit of this particular galaxy. You may or may not know that the Vianazo pirates have been plauging this area for quite some time and we've lost a number of men trying to stop them. Now, here's the interesting part. The Vianazo gang has recently been lured onto the planet Namegro, with a promise of some fat loot.... of course there isn't any. A device was then activated preventing any ships from leaving the surface. They can still land, but then they're stuck. We, however, are not willing to risk any more men taking on these pirates... so we've opened up this choice opportunity to several proffesional hunters. Go in, be the first to bag the Vianazo's, and you get the bounty... a cool 10 mil. We'll know when you've done it, and we'll turn off the device preventing ships from leaving. You'll be competing with anyone else there, to get the bounty, and the Vianazo's aren't nothin to scoff at... and, of course, you won't be able to leave until someone takes care of the Vianazo's. If you accept, all you have to do is head to Namegro... you'll get details when you land." The vidcast cuts out.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Whew. That was a mouthfull."

Keiko, sandwiches are good.

Treya says, "Elsa plot a course to Namegro."

Upton, Elsa manages minor maintenance by herself with her little service droids... your access to her programming is nearly null unless you are given conditional access for an upgrade... or you hacked in. That, however, would run the risk of Elsa noticing, and she would of course alert Treya.

Keiko she puts the sandwich on a plate with some potato salad stuff and grabs a can of the captains favorite drink and puts it on a tray then heads to the captains cabin and knocks on the door to her cabin.

Elsa chimes in your cabin. "Acknowledged. Plotting course."

Treya hmms and sits at her somewhat dusty computer, looking for AI programs.

Upton doesn't want to piss off the captian and the goes to look over Renold's shoulder to makle sure he hasn't blown anything up again.

Treya, there is a knock at your door.

Treya says, "Come in."

Keiko opens the door and enters with the tray. "I brought you some lunch captain."

Treya says, "Oh, thanks kid."

Keiko puts the Tray on the table. "Peanut better just the way you like it." She grins.

Treya nods and has a bite while she waits for the programs to load. "Mmms'good."

Renald is currently banging a hammer repeatedly into a bit of metal. He then stops and grabs a wrench, ratcheting a bolt that allready seems quite tight onto an obscure, small bit of machinery. He does this... for quite awhile.

Upton says, "How;s it coming kid?"

Keiko says, "Anything interesting up?""

Treya says, "Not particularly."

Treya, your search results in 300,456,765,860,254,765 matches. Care to be more specific?

Keiko says, "Oh ok. Where are we off to now?""

Treya narrows it down to female.

Treya says, "New planet."

<OOC> Keiko says, "lol half that number?"

<OOC> Treya isn't a computer genius.


<OOC> Keiko says, "nah probably 90 of that number as most space ship captains are probably male geeks."

<OOC> Upton says, "Would Treya realise that Upton can help, heck he can proablly build one from scratch."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "AI aren't just for ships you know."

Treya sighs. "Umm...english speaking...female...sor a ship."

<OOC> Treya says, "I'm gettin there XD"

Keiko says, "What are you looking for?""

Treya says, "A personality for Elsa."

100,323,565,860,876,123 matches found. It's several galaxies worth of information out there, so someone who knew what they were doing would probably actually be suprised there weren't more.

Keiko says, "Oh Neat. Give her a cool accent... maybe british or something... not a dumb one like Uptons... that southern drawl thing makes people sound stupid.""

Treya says, "It just occured to me that she's a very advanced AI who has no personality."

Treya nods to her. "Hmm...narrow search to uh...ages 20-25.

Upton watches Renolds banging waiting for a response to his, "How's it coming" qeury.

Just a quick browsing shows many different options... but the first five pages all seem to be fetish based.

Keiko says, "Maybe if you refine the search with -xxx""

Treya says, "Oh...no uh...pornographic ones."

Your new search eliminates the teenage personalities resulting in 860,523. Matches. Eliminating anything sexual reduces your results to 1,000.

Treya says, "Hey that helped alot."

<OOC> Treya says, "lol XD"

Treya says, "Hmm..."

Treya says, "I want her to have a sense of humor."

Your results are again reduced, to around 230 different matches.

Treya says, "She has to know how to be serious when the situation demands."

Reynald finally turns around. "Oh what? OH! Yes. It's... going."

Upton says, "Excellent, keep up to the good work."

"Probably only a few more hours before I can get a decent module... then it needs testing." A small raincloud apears over his head and starts pooring water on him.

Keiko says, "Maybe if she makes helpful suggestions when they are well going to be helpful. You know... ahh "Treya, there is an incoming missle. May I suggest evasive action" Or something like that."

Upton then heads to the PT room and practices his unarmed combat.

110. Matches.

Treya says, "Right, add that."

Upton stops a moment, "Where did the mini stormcloud come from?

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Upton doesn't even bat an eye at the strange localized weather inside the spaceship...which is currently in space. Man, he's been jaded."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Ah, I spoke to soon."

<OOC> Upton says, "Damn, took the words right out of my mouth ;)"

"Oh that?" THe rain cloud dissapears and is replaced with beams of sunlight as Renald gets a bright expression on his face. "It's my weather-mood indicator! I combined a weather-probe and a mood ring! It works rather well, actually!"

<OOC> Keiko says, "if he throws a temper tantum he generates a mini hurricane. lol"

Treya, Elsa kind of allready DOES that. Combat strategy and theorum is a basic part of her analytical AI system.

Treya says, "Yeah...shut up kid you're distracting me."

Upton says, "Hmmm, you watched many cartoons and wanted to have those so of dramatic effects real?"

Keiko says, "Sorry Treya. Was just trying to be helpful."

"Well, the inspiration did come from that one vid-cast with the wallabe and the steer..."

Treya says, "It's fine. Ok...umm...make them anglo saxxon voices."

Upton says, "Rocko's modern life?"

"Whosawhat? No, Ilbo and Jojo's Big Silly Adventure! I thought everyone watched that."

This results in 5 matches.

Treya says, "Aha! *she scrolls through them, listening to samples*"

Upton says, "Ah, I had a 20th-21 century animation class I took in college so the one I mentioned was the first to come to mind."

Upton says, "Well, I'm head to the Gym. Call me if anything significate happens."

Keiko says, "I know Im being silly, but maybe Elsa might like some of those more than others? You might ask her opinion?""

There are some subtle differences between them, and a brief synopsis of each on their respective pages... each one also has a price tag of about two million credits.

Treya says, "...go get hee-haw."

They're all somewhat customizable, and can be applied to an existing AI template. Lucky you!

<OOC> Treya says, "As if I'd pay MONEY. XD"

Keiko says, "Alrigh tCaptain."

Upton then heads to his quaters, chnages into some work out clohtes then heads to the PT room to pratice unarmed combat

Keiko says, "Elsa wheres HeeHaw?""

"Mr. Heehaw is currently located in the PT Room."

<OOC> Treya says, "XD"

Keiko heads on out of the captains cabin to go look for Upton where Elsa tells her. "Hey Mr. Upton... The captain wants you."

Upton can be found in the PT room, skillfully beating to stuffing out of the dummy

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "I figured Treya would inform Elsa to relate that name to Upton."

<OOC> Treya says, "indubitably XD"

Treya says, "Elsa call him to my quarters."

Upton says between punchs, "Does she wanna chew me out about something?

Keiko says, "Shes in her quarters. No no I think she wants you for something.""

Elsa chimes into the room. "Mr. Heehaw, Treya requests your presence in her quarters."

Upton finish up a praticular effective routine, "Okay, I'll go see her." then he get an amused look on his face, "At least Elsa says mister," then heads to the captains quarters.

Upton soon arrives at Treya's quarters!

Keiko "Well she might not always." Grins and follows Upton back to Treya's cabin.

Treya says, "You. Get this one for me for free."

Upton arrive in a workout outfit, 'Ya wanted to see me captain?

Treya points at the AI she wants.

Treya indicates a computer screen with a two million credit AI personality upgrade.

Rather professionaly made, it looks like...

Upton looks at it and ponder if he can make one better up from scratch.

Keiko says, "You know computers Mr. Upton?""

Upton first check if its base code is open source/

Upton says, "Yep I sure do"

Treya says, "Can you get it for me or not?"

Upton, you are rather good at what you do, but you also don't have the same facilities, tools, consultants and other such things as these guys. On the otherhand, you're not burdened with any of that corporate nonsense either.... it's entirely possible, but you'd have to be very careful not to leave any bugs in, what with the AI running the ship and all. Personality quirks could result in a HAL 2000 incident.

It certainly wouldn't be quick. Or, well, it could, but there'd be a much greater chance of leaving flaws and bugs in.

Upton says, "Yep I sure can give enough time and nearly unrestricted access to Elsa' commuters."

Treya says, "Nevermind, I'll...ugh...buy it."

Treya says, "You two go do something while I work up the nerve to do it."

Keiko says, "Can't you just hack the site and snag it? Course that would take a lot of programs that you probably don't have captain. Finding a back door could be hard and routing and covering your tracks could be tricky. They probably have a good defense.""

Upton says, "What, I can save ya millions and you won't have to worry about any problems often found in commercial products."

Keiko says, "Alright Treya. Anything you need done?" She gathers up the recent clothing additions to the captains floor for the laundry."

They're also probably not storing their very expensive AI on the server the use to advertise it...

Treya saves it in her little window thing. "Get get, I've got things to do."

Upton says, "Well then, the least I can do is go through the one you buy and look for the countless envitible glitches, bugs and security risk found in commercial products"

Treya says, "We'll see."

Keiko heads to the laundry and puts Treya's clothes into the cycler. Then goes on up to the bridge and sites down at the monitor and plugs into her school server.

Upton says, "See ya captian."

Upton heads back to the gym.

Treya says, "Right..."

Treya gets her gear together for the fightin.

Elsa is still on her way to Namegro. The trip won't take too much longer

Treya heads to her training area to get warmed up, doin her thang.,

Upton will shower after training and then lay in his room pondering was for that Treya can trust him more.

<OOC> Upton says, "Um scratch that if Treya is coming in while I am still there."

Soon enough, Elsa informs everyone that they have arrived at Namegro. She asks Treya if she should land.

<OOC> Upton says, "N/m"

Treya says, "Do so Elsa."

Upton heads out of his room in his usal attire and heads tot eh cockpit and looks out at this new world.

Treya says, "Hmm...and open my special armory. I wanna use the rocket launcher."


Upton says, "Watcha know about this rock we're land'n on?"

Treya says, "It's got a fat bounty on it."

Elsa lands on the planet, which seems mainly composed of wilderness. There is no real civilization to be seen.

Treya lifts the heavy launcher form it's holder and caresses it lovingly.

"Warning. Impulse destabilizer present on planet. Lift-off impossible." Elsa says helpfully.

Keiko turns off the training programs and gets up when Treya lands. "So what are we doing here?"

Upton says, "Looks habitable. Any B&E involved?"

Treya says, "Any what now?"

Upton says, "Breaking and Entering."

"Com-recieved." Elsa pipes up again.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "What, no one is concerned with the fact that Elsa said she can't leave the planet?"

<OOC> Upton says, "ICly, I don't know that."

Keiko says, "Captain... why ahh cant we launch again if we need to?""

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "But she just said it. Outloud."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Impulse destabilizer... lift-off impossible.... yadda yadda"

<OOC> Upton says, "Ah I missed in/"

<OOC> Treya says, "brb"

Upton looks at the captian, "Must be some bounty if someone is using a impulse destabilizer

<OOC> Keiko says, "yes but why is there an impuls destablizaer lol"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Youuuuu don't know."

<OOC> Upton says, "I assume its military grade hardware? If so what can I roll to see if I know a way around it."

<OOC> Keiko says, "thats why I asked why we cant take off."

<OOC> Upton says, "I have Military sciences with specialization in hardware."

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Basically, you would know enough about it to know that it screws the impulse drive of a ship so that it can't get lifting power. Warp core on planet surface is basically suicide. So unless you can build a rocket engine to lift a ship out of the atmosphere with the materials in a jungle and the non-oil based stuff on the Elsa, you're pretty stuck."

Keiko says, "Treya why is there a thing to keep us from taking off?""

Treya says, "Play the com Elsa."

Upton says, "Cause someone wants something down here not to go back up REALLY badly."

"Com is text based. Shall I print it for you?"

Treya says, "Yes Elsa."

Keiko Waits curious.

Elsa ejects a few sheets of paper. They give the location of the Vianazo Pirates ship, though not the location of wherever the pirates may be at the moment... especially if they spread out. They also make it clear that several other bounty hunters have taken up the challenge, so you will have competition. The ship is located quite a hike from your current position, but you were lucky enough not to land on the other side of the planet from it or something.

It's going to take a few days of hiking to get there.

Keiko says, "Oh ok... Guess we better get them then.""

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Keiko, Treya has the documents."

Treya hmms and shoulders her baby, and holsters her normal guns. "I don't think you should come kid."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Unless she let you read them, you wouldn't know what they say. Sooo, did you let her read them, Treya?"

Upton says, "Ya expect to take then all out commando style and survive?"

<OOC> Treya says, "I don't see why not."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Aight then."

Treya says, "I expect an inexperienced kid not used to forced marching and fighting immediatwlyt after will be a hindrance."

Keiko says, "Hey you been making me run a lot. I can walk.""

Upton says, "How about a Hehaw who is good with his fist, a far shot and is skilled in both Demolitions and medicine?"

<OOC> Upton says, "Er fair"

Treya says, "Here's the deal. This is the one and only trial run. If either of you screws this up, you're never coming again. Clear?""

Upton says, "Clear, may I see what sort of demolitions, communications and Medical supplies you have available?"

Treya says, "Elsa show him."

Keiko says, "I've been helpful Captain.""

Treya says, "Not on something like this."

Upton gets his own essential items and see what Elsa has available and stocks up.

Keiko says, "I can still be helpful...""

That depends on if Treya gives you access to the armory.

Treya gave SUPERVISED access.

Upton takes what he can carry that woukd be required for a mission of this type(assume Military sceinces will allow me to guess what is properly needed).

Well, there's a few pistols, some rifles, but most fun would be the explosives. Treya has quite a collection of these, ranging from grenades to mortars, even a few mines, of the proximity kind. She rather lacks tactical explosives in favor of attacking explosives.

There's not alot of sneaky devices in Elsa's armory.

<OOC> Upton says, "Does she have any blasting caps for my left over plastique?"

She does have a couple smallish remote activated explosives in a dusty corner of the room. They seem to have been ignored in favor of the bigger explosives.

Treya likes the big ones..and loads up on some grenades. ^^

Upton selects a rifle, a cross-sections of the mines and the dusty remote activated explosive, "This should be nice." thne he looks for any portible medical supplies.

Keiko says, "What should I take Treya?""

Treya says, "Can you shoot a gun?"

Treya grabs an odd silver one. "Here, you have to shoot slow or it'll over heat."

Keiko says, "Alright." Yes I can.""

Keiko takes the silver gun. "I have to aim so I don't shoot as fast as you."

Upton also has his toolbelt w/ multi-tool, diagnostic scanner and plastique, which he can add to the explosives he found.

Elsa is equipped with first aid kits, and you also find a few stabilizing drugs for severe emergancies as you rummage around as well as some anti-venon for general poisons... but other then that, she's not exactly a hospital.

Treya hands Keiko a battery pack. "For when it runs out."

Upton takes those, attaches them to his toolbelt and harness, "Captain, what do we have for trail rations?

Treya says, "Trail whats now? I'm gonna make some sandwiches for myself."

<OOC> Treya says, "Like a picnic! With guns. :D"

Keiko says, "Alright. Got any packs and things? Its a few days.""

Treya says, "Yup. Elsa open the uh...back pack cabinet. It has some name I never recall."

Keiko has reconnected.

<OOC> Keiko says, "that was wierd"

<OOC> Keiko says, "the rest of you ehre?"

Upton says, "Some packs would be nice. Are you sure its not call a survival locker?"

<OOC> Treya says, "No. XD"

Keiko She heads to the kitchen area and begins to mass produce sandwichs with Treya.

Elsa opens up a small panel which contains some rather basic packs, little more then ruck-sacks really.

Treya shrugs. "Hell if I know."

<OOC> Keiko says, "suddenly there was nothing :)"

Upton takes one of the rucksacks and puts what gear he can't put on his tool belt in there, "Are you sure you don't have any survival or emergency rations or even a water purifier?

Keiko gets a pack for herself and Treya and begins to shovel in sandwiches.

Upton, when you looked over the supplies during the boring trip, you actually noticed several MRE type supplies had been ordered. Treya mroe then likely just hands over the supply list Elsa prints out to the warehouse manager... after adding about ten mroecarts of peanut butter between the lines.

Upton says, "Sandwiches are awfully bulky and rather perishable."

Treya says, "You can carry what you want."

Keiko says, "Peanut butter and bread will last several days."

Upton gathers up MREs and piles them into the rucksack and looks for a portable water purifier.

Treya says, "Welp I'm all ready to go. Kid you're my official ammo carrier."

Treya tosses Keiko a rather heavy pack.

Keiko puts several bottles of water in her pack and gives some to Treya for hers.

Keiko blinks. "Alright if you say so." She takes the pack.

Treya says, "Might as well be useful in some capacity right?"

Keiko, it's pretty heavy, being full of metal things. You are now the pack mule.

Treya says, "Elsa arm all defenses. If anyone other then myself or a registered crew member approaches shoot them."

Renald steps out of the engine room area. "SUCCESS!"

He looks around. "Huh? Where are we?"

Treya says, "going to kill some pirates or something. Wanna come?"

Elsa pipes up with "Acknowledged."

Upton is loaded up and looks at Renald, "You finished? Have you tested it yet?

Keiko says, "Success at what?""

Treya barely even knows who she's about to shoot. XD

Renald scratches his helmet. "Uh, blood and stuff isn't exactly my forte. I think I'll just.. invent a jelly-bean... inventor. Or something." He slinks back into the engine room without answering the other questions.

Keiko says, "Smart boy."

Upton says, "Captain, might I suggest Elsa to stun the kid if he doesn't anything more major then invent harless devises?"

<OOC> Upton says, "Er if he does"

Treya nods and sets out along the trail, holding a little hand held computer doohicky to find her way. "Elsa's smart enough to know what's what."

Upton looks at the devise she's use, "What that?

Upton, it's a pretty basic GPS unit. Better then a map!

Keiko Follows along. "How many bad guys are there?"

Treya says, "Some map thinger Elsa gave me awhile ago. And I dunno."

<OOC> Upton says, "Trouble with GPS is that its need sattelite to work."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "And in the future, there's sattelites EVERYWHERE!"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Or some other conveniant excuse"

<OOC> Upton says, "I assume this is a backwater, uncoloninized world."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "True enough. And yet it still has sattelite servailance."

<OOC> Upton says, "Elsa launches a probe in geo-synch orbit?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "You'd be hard-pressed to find a planet that doesn't have at least one sattelite anywhere but the outer-rim."

<OOC> Keiko says, "it was put into place by the same people that put the whatsit take off lock in place :)"

Treya is walking and following her doohicky.

Upton shrugs and follows, trying to see if he can rig his dignostic scanner and comlick to pick up any com traffic.

<OOC> Upton says, "Electronic roll?"

The hike is sweat-inducing. There are also biting bugs, which are itch-inducing.

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Sure, go ahead"

Keiko has reconnected.

<OOC> Keiko says, "sheesh"

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 3 and 3.

<OOC> Upton says, "5 under."

The hike is sweat-inducing. There are also biting bugs, which are itch-inducing.

Treya sprays some Bug-away on herself.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "in case you missed that"

Keiko says, "Can I use some of that?""

<OOC> Keiko says, "and I did."

Treya says, "I dunno...I might run out."

Treya, this seems to get rid of some of the bugs... and yet attract others. Even in this day and age, bu repellent is crap.

Keiko says, "Fine.""

Upton toss the kids a bottle of repellent he got from the medical supllies

Upton, you think you have it jury-rigged pretty good, having messed with this device so often before, but the range will only be within a mile since it's not really the intended use of your scanner... at all.

Upton says, "I should be able to detect any comm trafic within a few klicks radius from here."

<OOC> Upton says, "Here=us"

Treya says, "Uh...ok."

Upton says, "Should give us the jump on any patrols of any sort."

Treya says, "Ah..."

Upton keeps monitoring his jury rigged devise as they walk.

Keiko continues walking along swatting at bugs now and again. "Annoying little bastards."

The treck is arduous for some (one) not so much for others. As the sun sets, Keiko is not exactly in tip-top condition. Lugging around the ammo on the uneven ground all day takes it's toll.

Treya says, "We're making good time at least."

Upton also begins to feel exhausted... he hasn't done this much actual cross-country without a vehicle in some time.

Only Treya seems like shejust had some brisk excersise.

Keiko says, "This packs way heavy." She groans under the weight."

Upton yawns a bit, "Its been a while since I have had to hike at all.

Treya says, "Ah?"

Treya takes the pack from Keiko and shouders it.

Keiko says, "Thanks Treya. I'm not as strong as you are.""

Treya says, "I know."

Treya says, "We'll work on it."

Upton says, "My folk back on Terra on the ranch in Texas encourged us kids to use motorized transprotation as little as passobile. You think I'm a Heehaw, well my family is as trandtionalist as they come."

Keiko says, "Can you teach me about the ship some when we get back?""

Keiko says, "Did you ride camels instead?""

Treya chuckles and shrugs. "I can show you how to pilot."

Keiko says, "Thanks." She smiles. Then turns back to Upton. "They ride camels in Taxes right?""

Treya says, "horses."

Upton snorts, "Camel are for Aussies. My family raise horses in addtion to having a cattle ranch and dairy farm.

Treya says, "They ride camels in the desert."

Keiko has reconnected.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "You guys may have to repeat that"

Upton says, "Texas is only part desert with no camels. Its mostly grasslands."

Upton snorts, "Camel are for Aussies. My family raise horses in addtion to having a cattle ranch and dairy farm.(repost)

<OOC> Keiko says, "saw the camel for aussies and trya saying camels are for the desert usually I have no problem here but tonight it dont like me. lol"

Keiko says, "Did you have kangaroos too?""

<OOC> Upton says, "Factoid, there are more wild camels in Austrailia then there is in hte mild east."

Treya says, "That's Australia."

Upton says, "Only in zoos."

Keiko says, "Oh. Australia sounds like a more interesting place than texas."

Treya sighs and walks a bit faster.

March march march... night begins to fall and the insects get more active. Pesky things.

Keiko says, "I did hear that Texas only had one problem once though..."

Upton says, "Which is?"

Keiko says, "Its full of texans."

Keiko laughs.

By this time, even Treya is starting to get tired. Needless to say, Keiko is wiped out and Upton is rather pooped.

Keiko has partially disconnected.

Upton is too tried to respond to the bad joke.

Keiko has partially disconnected.

<OOC> Keiko says, "its not a joke it sthe truth! And it shall set you free!"

Treya stretches and finds a spot to camp.

There's plenty of spaces if you aren't picky about uneven ground and rocks.

Upton lays down his stuff and lays out a survival blanket.

Treya is not, and has a seat somewhere, bustin out a sammich.

<OOC> Upton says, "What sort of Terrain have we been traveling though?"

Keiko finds a clearish spot near treya and pulls out a sandwich and eats as well.

<OOC> Upton says, "I am guess Steppe?"

Upton breaks out an MRE and drinks water.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Whatever you call hilly with trees."

<OOC> Keiko says, "hilly with trees."

<OOC> Upton says, "How much tress and what the climate like?"

Sun, mildly humid, lots of trees with about two or three feet between and the occasional small semi-clearing.

<OOC> Upton says, "Temperate broad leaf forest in summer?"

<OOC> Keiko says, "yea whatever."

<OOC> Keiko says, "lol"

Treya stretches out, caring neither for the type of freakin tree they're under or the weather.

<OOC> Keiko says, "too much detail dont tax the dm :)"

Upton checks his devise and also see if he can pick up scans for others sorts of scanner as well.

Let's call it that. I'm not exactly a geography expert.

Upton, your poor little scanner can only do so many things at one time. You wouldn't want it to burn out

<OOC> Upton says, "Just call me "He=Who-Goes-into-too-much-damned-detail."

Upton settles on com traffic then.

Treya is soon snoring.

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Keiko pages: sometimes al fixates and has to be sort of shut down with ummm thats all you get :)

You paged Keiko with 'Heh.'

Keiko finishes eating her sandwich and washes it down with some water and is soon quickly sleeping as well.

Things seem to be winding down for the day... soon Upton is the only one awake

<OOC> Upton says, "Do I have any none explosive motion detectors around?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Nope. Maybe you should put those on the supply list some time."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "When Treya's in charge of it, all the non-food items tend to have explosions or at least loud bangs associated with them"

Treya 's snoring could be considered and explosive. XD

<OOC> Keiko says, "treya likes a big badaboom"

Upton see he can switch is devise over to a motion detector and alarms system.

<OOC> Upton says, "I am trying to think a way of security that doesn't involve set proxitmaty devise the others can accidently set off."

Unfortunately, your scanner is designed to scan electronics. You could set it's scanning beam to detect motion, but it would only do so in one direction... unless you had the materials to expand the beam... and you didn't bring a bunch of random electroncis on you. Security wasn't well thought out before everybody set off.

Keiko has partially disconnected.

Keiko dreams happily while she sleeps.

While you sit and ponder, you see a shadow. It quickly moves up to you, resolving into a man with long blonde hair and a thin, lithe form. He is dressed in dark, skin-tight clothes, covered in bandoleers. You can't tell what's in them yet. He smiles at you.

"Weeelll, Hello."

Upton subtle reaches for his rifle and says, "Howdy.

"You're not pirates, are you?"

Upton says, "Do I look like a god dammed pirate?"

<OOC> Keiko says, "does this wake treya or myself or both?"

"Just thought I'd ask. Care to introduce me to your leader then?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "No, he's rather quiet. And Treya snores loudly enough to cover him up past a 1.5 foot radius."

<OOC> Keiko says, "lol"

<OOC> Treya says, "hehe"

Upton kicks treya's foot and says, "Captain we have company

Treya snorts and sits up with a zuh grabbing her gun.

The man waves at you. "Hello there. You're the leader, then?"

Treya focuses on him and trains her pistols. "Yup."

<OOC> Keiko says, "lol does this part wake me?"

"Good! I'm Alveia the Swift Blade, and I'm here for the bounty, as I assume you are. I'm fairly straightforward, sooooooo.... I'd like to challange you to a duel. Winner gets to keep going after the pirates."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "You are disturbed by the lack of Treya's snoring, a sound you are now used to sleeping near."

Treya says, "What kinda duel?"

Keiko sits up rubbing her eyes. "I don't want to go to school."

"The fighting kind, of course." He unsheathes a couple of knives from the bandoleers across his chest... which incidentally are full of knives.

Treya says, "I could just shoot you in the face."

"Could you?" He grins

Treya 's fingers twitch. "Duel to the death or what?"

Keiko blinks taking all this in... "Uh wouldn't it make more sense to join forces and split the bounty?"

"Oh, if it ends up that way. You could always yield, if you like." He glances at Keiko. "Doesn't know much about bounty hunters, does she?"

Treya says, "She does not. Mmm...first blood works for me."

Keiko frowns. "I guess not. But it makes sense."

"If you say so."

"Shall we?"

Treya says, "You shall back up first."

He grins a bit more and hops back a few steps. "Ready?"

Treya flips smoothly to her feet. "Sure."

Roll init

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

Treya rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 2.

GDMSkullrama rolls 1d6 and gets 1.

<OOC> Treya says, "Oh just one?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "For init, yes"

<OOC> Treya says, "like I'm gonna beat a 1..."

Treya rolls 1d6 and gets 1.

<OOC> Treya says, "..."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Hehe"

<OOC> Keiko says, "lol"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Unfortunately, he has an init feat. So he still beats you."

<OOC> Treya says, "...sunuvabitch XD I'm totally cheating lol"

<OOC> Upton says, "Eh, init feat?"

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "A feat to give a bonus on init? Whatever they call it... attribute."

<OOC> Keiko says, "I comprehend"

<OOC> Upton says, "More like it."

The man flicks his wrists, throwing his blades in swift motions

GDMSkullrama rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 6.

GDMSkullrama rolls 2d6 and gets 4 and 5.

They stick in the tree on opposite sides of you. He frowns. "WEll, that didn't exactly go as planned."

Treya grins and fires.

Treya rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 1.

Treya rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 1.

Keiko owie for the other guy. hee

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Critical hit. Are you trying to ruin any possible dramaticism in this battle?"

<OOC> Keiko says, "meant that ooc"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Roll 1d6 for the crit"

Treya rolls 1d6 and gets 4.

The man catches a bullet just under the ribs and is thrown backwards by the force of the blow.

Keiko gasps as the knives thunk into the tree and Treya fires back.

Treya strides over to him. "I think you lost."

He slowly stands up, a hand clutched over his wound with blood seeping out from under it rather quickly

"MM.. Ahem. Well."

Treya says, "So you can stick around and help out for...5, or just take off."

Upton takes his rifle in hand and ask, "Ya need a bandaid before yer takeing off?

<OOC> Treya says, "5 percent"

<OOC> Treya says, "dunno why the damn symbol never shows"

He seems to consider this. "Huh. I suppose that's a better deal then dieing in the forest."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "you have to type it twice"

<OOC> Upton says, "Need to type it twice"

<OOC> Keiko says, "got to use % two of them to make it work"

<OOC> Treya says, "right...ok"

The blood from his wound is flowing rather quickly and he looks a bit pale

<OOC> Keiko says, "its a system command code thinger so 2 makes it appear."

Treya grabs a pack and jabs him in the wound, injecting the foam to clot it.

"I swear those knives must have been defective..."

Treya says, "Nope. You just came up against the best."

He gerks a bit as you jab him.

Keiko says, "well at least we know hes honorable or he wouldnt have challenged you to a duel thing.""

Alveia looks at you again Keiko. "I only said I was straightforward. Not honroable."

Treya says, "It's true. But I don't think he'll turn on me will ya?"

Treya says, "even Bounty hunters have a loose code, and I saved his life."

Upton aims his rifle right on him, "I doubt it Captain.

Treya says, "I don't. Now I'm awake, so we're marching again."

<OOC> Upton says, "Was in responce to turning on her."

<OOC> Upton says, "How long were they asleep before he showed up?"

Keiko says, "He could have stabbed us in our sleep. But theres a code of sorts. Its honor to some extent""

He looks a little nervous. "As long as you have those metal-slingers withing 5 yards of you, I'd sooner jump in an acid-crag on Montavius IX."

<OOC> Keiko says, "and he just turned to speak to me. not threatning."

Treya says, "I imagine you would."

Upton says, "The only reason he did not stab you because I was still awake."

Treya says, "So you say. Now let's get moving."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Everyone except you got about an hour of sleep, Upton. Treya is a slave-driver. The man hasn't even had time to bandage his wound."

Upton takes a couple of no doze and faigute reducers, "What ever you say captain.

<OOC> Upton says, "I though treya used a instant bandage thing on him/"

Treya starts walking.

Keiko has reconnected.

Treya starts walking.

<OOC> Keiko says, "saw your slave driver comment"

<OOC> Upton says, "I though treya used a instant bandage thing on him/"

Keiko says, "He could have waited for you to sleep. Don't be silly and with Treya's snoring... we wouldnt have woken up.""

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "She clotted the blood. He's still not wrapped up, and he has a melted piece of metal inside him."

Keiko begins walking after Treya.

Treya says, "We'll get a good rest tonight."

Upton says, "Captain, should I preform a little first aid on our guest?"

Alveia grabs his knives from the tree and resheates them. "Damn things, I swear they must not be balanced right..."

Treya says, "He's fine. And don't feel bad kid. I'm not easy to hit with something a sslow moving as a knife. I've got enhancement."

He mumbles something like 'you barely even moved' under his breath as he marches

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "I think we'll wrap it up here, if everyone's okay with that"

<OOC> Treya says, "I s'pose."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "seems as good a place as any"

<OOC> Keiko says, "okie dokie :)"

<OOC> Treya says, "So how'sexp work? Have we earned any?"

<OOC> Keiko says, "shoot him again treya lol"

<OOC> Keiko says, "we got one point once long ago. :) its up to the dm to give a point or so out now and again"

<OOC> Keiko says, "am I still here again"

<OOC> Keiko says, "oh good I am"

<OOC> Treya says, "yeah"

<OOC> Upton says, "Don't mind stopping now"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Oh, I suppose it's a good time to give out another point. Feel free to do what you'd like with it!"

<OOC> Treya says, "2 exp after so many session? xD"

<OOC> Keiko says, "woot!"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Points are powerful!"

<OOC> Treya says, "How so?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "they can do alot of stuff. One more point in a stat can help alot. And also, have you seen how slowly characters progress in space opera Anime?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "They don't get like super more powerful over the course of the series"

<OOC> Treya says, "I s'pose."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "*spouts inane justification of his lazy doling out of experiance bonuses*"

<OOC> Treya says, "You've just been forgetting XD"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Ridiculous."

<OOC> Treya says, "....XD"

<OOC> Keiko says, "A point in a stat can help a lot. :)"

<OOC> Keiko )

<OOC> Treya says, "No no. He's been forgetting. xD"

<OOC> Keiko says, "well its been a while but it is not necessarily supposed to be a regular thing lol :)"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Anyhow... and particular likes or dislikes?"

<OOC> Treya says, "I liked shootin that guy."

<OOC> Keiko says, "predictable :) I like playing. The guy was a good touch."

<OOC> Keiko says, "meant treya liking the shooting was predictable"

<OOC> Upton says, "Alot of things cost far more then 1 points. I for one am Going to Pick up another point of highly skilled and give myself Gun combat and Ranged Defense and something else."

<OOC> Upton says, "Ok, Just ZGun Comba t and Ranged defense."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Of course alot of things do, but they're also powerful. If you want them that bad, I could let you work toward it IC and award it as a bonus for completing some difficult task related to it. Or something."

Keiko has reconnected.

<OOC> Keiko says, "back again"

Keiko pages: I put it into soul. Which is now 8. Puts combat at +6 defense at +4 health at 60 and energy at 75.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Anyway (again) Time for me to go away. See you guys around."
