Treya has connected.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Doopdedoopde doo... okay."

<OOC> Upton says, "Hey Skullrama!"

<OOC> Keisho says, "hi hi"

<OOC> Upton says, "YEHAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!"

<OOC> Keisho says, "great timing on both counts :)"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Now to open up the character sheets and


<OOC> Treya says, "Actually skull AIM'd me."

Upton pages: Off record, I hope you make Keisho potential girly change a

slower on.

Upton pages: And I am very curious what sort of unknown side effects the

genetic reshuffling will have.

You paged Upton with 'yes, well, Renald doesn't exactly know about Keisho's

strange power ma-bobs, does he? And treya didn't seem to consider it.'

<OOC> Keisho says, "What eva! :)"

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "okay. So. I suppose we should begin then. Every

one abotu ready?"

Upton pages: IMHO, Sci-fi changes, even with a zappy thing should take

longer to be more realisic, but that is just me,.

<OOC> Treya says, "yup"

<OOC> Keisho says, "yessm :)"

<OOC> Upton says, "Ready in a couple minutes, need to runn out for a smoke.

Start without me if need be"

<OOC> Treya says, "We're all separated so that's not hard XD"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "You were at the time anyway... I tend to envision

these things sort of opening up the next day (Or just an hour later, or some

undetermined amount of time later or whatnot) most sessions, in an episodic

manner.... but if anyone feels that they had something to do that they

didn't get too taht needed doing in that immediate time-frame."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "....Theeeen lemme know."

<OOC> Treya says, "ahh"

<OOC> Treya says, "Nah I'm good."

<OOC> Upton says, "back"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Kay. Beggining in... now."

<OOC> Keisho says, "Im ok."

The sun is Mid-high during your second day on Sigma 7. The real activites

start when the sunsets, but the planet's facilities are not abandoned at the

current hour. The relaxing atmosphere of the Genoshan hot Spring Resort

welcomes the day light.

Treya lounges outside sunning herself with a contented smile.

Upton decides to check out the hot spring at this time and head out with a

towel, a speedo and his communicator in case he happens to get a call.

The springs are also less populated then normal at this time, only occupied

by a balding, middle-aged man, and a small, long nosed man. The both of them

seem content to relax and soak up the heat of the springs.

Keisho Makes himself scarce adn wanders about the town a bit.

Treya, you're relaxation is interrupted as someone steps next to you,

blocking your sun. "I got the ... thing... ready, like you asked. Huh, I

should probably give it a name... 'genetic re-shuffler' sounds kind of lame,

not exactly awe-inspiring... something more like 'Gene scrambler' maybe or

'DNActivator', or..."

Treya opens her eyes lazily. "Yeah call it whatever you want. Where is it?"

Upton enters the men;s side of the hot spring, goes it and soaks.

As you open your eyes, Treya, you notice the teenaged-boy carrying a tote

bag, which he gestures too. "But like I said, it kinda would need a ship

core or something that generates equivalent power to be useful..."

Treya hmms. "What about the source of the hot springs, Would that work?"

Keisho, the town is much less populated then before, and while there are

large buildings everywhere, you can more easily find your way around without

the crowds.

Upton, the springs are as you'd expect of a high-quality resort. The stress

of the prior day melts away from tense muscles.

Renald frowns. "Uh, no not really, unless the source of the springs could

power a frigate at warp..."

Treya says, "Well it IS magma from the volcano."

Upton pages: Is there any chance that I can over hear this conversation

through the wall or something?

Keisho Shrugs and wanders looking for anything interesting though if he

fails to find that he ends up sitting outside the place watching people.

Renald nods, "Yes, but if geothermal energy could power above-light speed

travel, Humans would likely have colonized other planets at much earlier

then history tells us..." He flicks his helmet. "Maybe it could be used for

something else though..."

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Treya says, "Ok...would the ships core still be useable after?"

You paged Upton with 'Not from the hot springs, no.'

Keisho there are of course, casinos aplenty, as well as diners, show rooms

and theatres, of not only the stage and holo-screen sort but vintage

flat-screen movies seem to be playing as well. A few children near or ever

younger then your own age seem to be gambling, and no one seems to care.

Keisho shrugs and goes into the resort casino and peers at the gambling.

Upton lounges oblivious to the mad science discussion going on some unknown

number of meters away

Renald scratches his helmet. "Well, I don't see why not, it would have to

cool down afterwards, but depending on the size of the core, that would

probably only take a few hours..."

Treya says, "Good, we'll use Elsa's."

Treya stands up. "Follow me then."

Keisho, you don't recognize many gambling games, but you see a few people

playing card games at tables, spinning some wheels, and pulling the lever of

machines at various positions, among other things.

Renald shoulders his tote bag and follows your lead.

Treya heads to Elsa, leading him down to her engine room. "Good morning


Keisho says, "Dunno..." Quickly gets board and wanders back outside in front

of the resort and goes back to watching people"

<OOC> Keisho says, "oh im confused... Treya you drug me back to the ship

last session did we stay there? In which case im probably near."

<OOC> Treya says, "I thought I drug you to your hotel room and told you to

stay put."

<OOC> Keisho says, "oh I probably did then... at lest till morning then

found breakfast but am staying near the hotel."

"Good morning Treya." Elsa's voice chimes in. Renald whistles at the engine

room's core. "Well, yeah, that would probably do it. Much better then a

frigate core. I'll just have to modify a connection, pretty easy, not to

terribly invasive, the core looks fairly adaptive actually.." he continues

to mutter such things to himself.

Treya says, "Do it, but treat Elsa gentle hear me?"

Upton the middle-aged man gets up and leaves the hot-spring. Not much

activity otherwise.... the whole area is pretty lazy at the moment.

<OOC> Upton says, "God, he does to tinker with Elsa's power core, I'm so


<OOC> Treya says, "brb"

"Sure, sure." he flicks his helmet. "Uh, where did you want me to set it up

though? It kinda needs to be walked into."

Upton after a while get sick of lunge, gets out dries off and heads to the

hotel room to get dressed.

Upton pages: I have a question, how does that point of ep you gave us break

down into skill point character points and such?

Things really don't seem to be moving in this town while the sun is up,

Upton. You did however, leave all those parts you'll need for the Elsa in a

warehouse last night...

You paged Upton with 'Well, it's one character point. If you want skill

points, you'll need to put it into Highly Skilled.'

Upton decides to call up Treya to see if she is about.

Treya, your communicator alerts you to the fact that it is recieving a call.

Keisho bored he goes to the front desk and inquires to see if they have seen

Treya... not like shes hard to miss.

Keisho, the man from before seems to be off shift right now, and a large

woman with thick glasses and a bee-hive hairdo sits behind the desk. "Hmmmm?

A guest named Treya was it? I do believe she left the premisis earlier with

a young man in a helmet. I don't know where, I try not to stick my nose into

the guest's private lives... except maybe Mr. Rogar. He does some of the

most interesting things in his off time... why, just last week I heard from

Mary that he was with Gerogette, the scandal of it!"

Keisho says, "Oh really? Why thank you maam... I can't believe the scandel."

<OOC> Upton says, "Ooops, Treya's brb"

Upton wonders into the lobby at this time.

<OOC> Keisho says, "you cant your on the phone lol"

Upton is not dress in his usaly attire, but instead with jean, t-shirt,

leather jack along with his boots and hat really looking the part of the


<OOC> Upton says, "Cell phone type thing."

Upton will leave a message for Treya and spots Keisho, "Hey Kids, how are

you doing?

<OOC> Upton says, "Er kid."

Keisho says, "Ahh fine thanks... mostly.""

"Honestly, I can't believe the man, he's simply a dog! But a very handsome

dog, I must admit..." Upton walks into the lobby in time to hear this bit.

Upton says with a raised Eyebrow, "Mostly?

Keisho says, "Well he seems nice enough.""

Upton smiles at the lady and tips his hat and jokes, "I hope you ain't

talking about lil' ole me.

"Hmmm?" She looks up as she slips out of gossip mode to acknowledge you. "No

no, I'm talking about Mr. Rogar. Who are you again?"

Upton pages: Added 2 ranks of Gamieng(poker) 1 more rank in architecture. 1

more rank of Electronics and another specialty in computer use.

You paged Upton with 'Well, just gimme the updated character sheet later.'

Upton says, "Names Rogan, Upton Samuel Mile Rogan."

<OOC> Upton says, "Er Miles."

Keisho nods. "I sort of know him." He lets Upton talk.

"Oh. So anyway, just last week, Mr. Rogar was talking to Betty at the galla

in George's casino. And he went there with Sandra! Can you believe it?"

She seems to be in her own little world at the moment.

Keisho says, "I think he likes girls."

She laughs, a belly-rumbling sound. "Ho ho ho, an understatement! Ho!"

Upton says, "Ah Gossip, well it would be better if I were more familiar if

the local folk. Most of them seem fairly nice, even some of the


Treya frowns a bit. "Set it up anywehre that's convenient."

Keisho smiles. "Thank you for the information..."

<OOC> Upton says, "WB."

Upton says, "So have you stayed out of trouble Keisho?"

"Hokay, I'll just need a minute to work." Renald flicks his helmet. Your

communicator continues to buzz.

Treya blinks and answers. "What?"

Keisho says, "Yes... I have.""

"You have 1 new message." The communicator tells you.

Keisho says, "Thank you maam your very nice. You know Mr. Uptons single." He

grins and walks away from the desk leaving Upton on the phone near the lady

and walks outside."

Treya says, "Well play message."

Upton's voice plays as you start the message.

You paged Upton with 'Go ahead.'

Upton 's voice says.

Upton 's voice says."Captain, I got the materials need for our upgrades. Let

me know when I can fetch them and put them aboard.

Treya says, "I told you when yesterday..."

Treya calls Keisho.

Upton looks at the lady and hopes to God she has a ring on her left hand.

<OOC> Upton says, "That was a recorded message."

<OOC> Treya says, "Uh huh, she's muttering angrily."

Keisho answers his com. "Yes Treya."

Treya says, "That's captain or ma'am to you, not get your ass to Elsa on the


Keisho says, "Yes Captain. I'm sorry maam.""

<OOC> Upton says, "Damn you Keisho, you told a lady a guy with Girl Magnet

is single."

Keisho says, "Is anything wrong maam?""

Treya hangs up.

Keisho says, "Oh crap... Hope shes alright" He runs for the ship at a fast

paced jog."

Treya says, "Renald is it already?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Sorry for the delay, had to do soething real

quick. Back though."

<OOC> Keisho says, "no worries"

<OOC> Upton says, "No problem"

"Oh, really? Hmm." She pushes her bee-hive hair a bit with her palm and bats

her eyes. "You know, I have some friends who are looking for a date... if

you're free later, Mr. Rogan."

Renald peeks around the corner, flicking his helmet. "Ayeah, pretty much, I

just have to adjust this coupling and optimize the input programming...

don't wanna fry the Splice Master...."

Upton smiles uneasy at the lady, "Um, sorry miss, I have a chaotic schedule

and I am only here a week. Perhapes I can take a rain check. Gotta go.

Treya nods. "Right." She waits for Kei at the dock.

Upton makes trails out of there and calls the Captain again.

"Not sure why you'd wanna be a man though, you're an awfuly pretty woman."

Renald says from the other room.

Keisho reaches the dock a bit winded from his Jog. "Is everything allright

Captain I was worried."

Treya, your communicator buzzes again.

Treya pushes the button. "Yeah everything's fine, get to the core room."

Keisho says, "Alright maam." He enters the ship and heads for the core


Upton says, "Captain, its Upton."

Treya says, "What do you want?"

Upton says, "Just wondering if there was a chance you could let me load up

Elsa today, so I can see if I can get a refund on the storage space I rent

near the ship."

<OOC> Upton says, "If that is even possible."

Treya says, "If you can do it in 15 minutes then yeah."

<OOC> Treya says, "afk for...15"

"Aaaand, done." A voice, which you recognize as Renald, comes from the other

room, as you step lively towards the core. before you can turn, you walk

under the arched entrance to the core room, and a clap of thunder assails

your senses, leaving a deafening ringing in your ears, and a bright light

flashes, leaving you blind for a moment. Treya, you hear the noise quite

easily, even Upton manages to hear some of it over the phone.

Upton says, "Easly."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Oof, kind of an important time to go AFK. So I

guess we'll pause tell she's back, everyone needs an equal opportunity to

react here."

<OOC> Keisho says, "ok."

<OOC> Keisho says, "she has two babies sometimes she hasnt a choice :)"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "S'okay."

<OOC> Keisho ) hope shes back soon hee

<OOC> Treya says, "back"

Treya blinks and hangs up, running down to the core room.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "And action!"

Keisho, your vision and hearing start to return, albeit slowly. You can

barely make out someone saying "I had no idea it would be so loud..."

Upton, after you heard the loud noise, Treya hung up.

Treya, you rush down to the room to see Renald come down from a side room,

Keisho lays face down on the floor

Treya says, "Is he ok?"

Upton heads over to the space port think it might have been a com failure.

Keisho blinks. "wha the hell was that!"

Keisho Shakes his head..

You say, "Well he should be..." He claps his hands. "Keisho, up and at em!

Blundered right into it, now it'll be at least two hours before Treya can

become a man...""

Treya says, "I don't want to become a man...."

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

He looks up. "Really? I could have sworn, after you had me go to all this


Keisho "What are you talking about...?" He sits up.

Treya says, "No, it was for you and Kei's punishments."

Keisho sits up, revealing to everyone that....

Nothing seems to have changed.

Treya says, "..."

Renald shakes his head and looks again. "That's... strange." he heads back

into the side room. "I have to check the logs, that just doesn't jive at all

with my theories, I mean, honestly, if it'd been a deformed third arm or

something I could understand, but nothing?"

Upton, you arrive at the space port, and oddly enough, Elsa's door has been

left wide open.

Keisho says, "What are you going on about?""

Treya huffs. "It didn't work."

Keisho Stands up a bit shakily."

Upton assume it was left open for him, so he goes to the sotage gets the

stuff and heads in.

Renald hmmms and humms as he poors over a screen. "Wow, no wonder, there's

some wiiiiierd coding in the genetics encountered... well that makes sense..

yes, now I see... so it'll... uh-huh... well. Now I wonder how it got that


Treya blinks and looks over his shoulder. "What is it?"

Upton pause at the doorways to the ship after getting the stuff and hollars,

"Permission to come aboard?

Nobody seems to be in the main area as you peer in, Upton.

Treya yells up the hall. "Unload your crap!"

Keisho says, "What what do you know about my genetics?""

Upton heads into the cargo area the asks Elsa, "Elsa, I think the captain's

communicator malfunctioned.

"Well, there's some sort of strange... thing. The re-shuffling worked, it's

just being held back by something I can't decipher.... if the code holding

it moves, it should take effect easily... or at least, a little. I suppose

it might have to move alot... " he flicks his helmet. "It's hard to explain,

um, it's very metaphysical, I wasn't even sure stuff like that was possible

until I took a look at the coding.."

Treya says, "Oh, you mean his powers? Hey kid...do somethin wacky."

Elsa does not answer back. She seems to be off-line currently.

Upton unloads and then hollars, "Everything alright?

Treya says, "Yup!""

Keisho, you're senses return to you. you're still, however... very confused.

Upton hollars, "Ya sure Elsa seems to be off-line

Treya says, "That's cause she's resting."

Keisho shakes his head to clear it. "Something wacky?"

Treya says, "With your weird powers. I dunno make that wrench float or


<OOC> Upton says, "Do I realise that for the lie that it is?"

Keisho "Ummm ok." Puts out his hand and concentrates on trying to make the

wrench move.

<OOC> Treya says, "Who's lying? Elsa's resting, her defenses are automated

while her AI sleeps."

Huh? (Type "help" for help.)

Keisho... roll 2d6

Keisho rolls 2d6 and gets 2 and 6.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "It's not exactly a lie."

<OOC> Upton assumed AI's didn't rest

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "She's recharging, currently."

<OOC> Treya says, "If my character lies I'll make it very clear."

<OOC> Keisho says, "ick lol What am I rolling against when i rol these


<OOC> Keisho says, "oh mind and soul"

<OOC> Keisho says, "I guess :)"

Upton hollar's back, "Ok, thanks. Need anything else, got the stuff all


Treya says, "Nope, make yurself scarce/"

Upton heads out to see how much of the 50 rental he can get back.

Keisho, you feel the strange power move within you a bit. The wrench

wiggles, as a small but crackle of energy moves over your hand, which

tingles and feels a bit numb. That is a bit different then you have ever

experianced when using your strange power.

Keisho says, "That felt funny.""

Your hand feels... different. Renald watches you closely. "Wow.


Keisho says, "What were you saying about my DNA? I saw something in a tank

that looked like me..." He makes a face."

Keisho gazes at his hand.

Keisho says, "It feels kinda numb and tingly."

Upton, the warehous owner grumbles at you. "We don't do refunds, pal. All

sales are final."

Treya frowns. "Ah well..."

Upton says, "I rented space for a week and didn't need it you sure we can't

work something out?"

Staring at it, it seems... smaller. You're not sure at first, but comparing

it to your other hand, it becomes obvious. It's smaller.

"You're free to put somethin else in it durin yer week."

<OOC> Treya says, "lol"

Upton says, "Fine fine."

Treya heads up and seals the hatch, coming back down once it's secured.

Upton will head over to a casino,

Treya lines up about a dozen bullets on a counter top, the tips pointing up.

"Ok kid, one at a time make these bullets move."

Keisho says, "What the hell happened to my hand! Its wierd...""

Upton, there are many many to choose from. as the day moves on, they begin

to get a bit more populated, but they still are no where near maximum


Renald grabs your hand and looks at it. "Dang. That's just... maybe I should

scan this. Of course I should scan this! ...What can I use to scan this, it

isn't exactly scannable..."

Treya says, "Leave the kid's hand alone, he's got work to do."

Keisho says, "Alright if you think its a good idea." He concentrates on

moving each of the bullets in turn."

Upton finds on that does poker, specifically Texas hold em(Which I assume

will be a mind+Gameing roll and I have a specality in gambling)

Renald lets it go. "Right of course. I need to build a scanner!"

Treya says, "Build away kid."

<OOC> Upton says, "Doesn't elsa have a sick bay?"

Treya says, "Don't just move em though, make them hang there."

<OOC> Treya says, "sure she does"

Such a casino is easily found, there there is only one player besides the

dealer. The roll would indeed use your gameing skill, but the target... I

believe I'll keep it secret.

<OOC> Keisho says, "you want me to roll on the bullets again and again?"

<OOC> Upton says, "I assume it has medical scanners."

Roll that 2d6 keisho.

Keisho rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 1.

<OOC> Treya says, "ooo"

<OOC> Keisho says, "lol that for all 10? weee good roll on my part."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Sure does, but they can't exactly scan the energy

that produces theoretical metaphysics..."

Upton joins the game putting down 250 credits.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 3.

GDMSkullrama pages: +Roll 2d6

You paged GDMSkullrama with '+Roll 2d6'

<OOC> Upton says, "Of course I will not bet it all on my first hand."

Upton pages: I have Gameing 2(gambling)

Keisho, the bullets raise into the air, and they hover.... then they pop and

fire into the hull, ricocheting, though not hitting anything important, your

arm tingles... and much the same thing as before happens.

Keisho Blinks "Whys my arm smaller! What happened here."

The player on your left isn't very aggressive, and folds. However, the

dealer manages to trump you,and you lose the hand.

Treya comes out from around the desk she dove behind. "Don't worry about

that." She puts a book out. "Make the pages turn."

Keisho makes a page turn.

Keisho rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 4.

<OOC> Upton says, "How much did I lose on that hand?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Not too much, probably thirty creds."

Upton goes for another hand.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 5.

<OOC> Upton says, "Dice arn't liking me today."

The page wiggles and rips out of the book. You start to feel rather tired,

as the over all exertion drains 25 EP from you. You feel more tingling, this

time in your other hand... Renald returns with a strange looking backpack

and a tubular device attached to his arm, pointing it at you. "Huh.. still a

few bugs... oh well, it'll do."

Treya says, "Do another page."

Keisho makes a face and trys to make the page invisible.

Keisho rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 5.

<OOC> Upton says, "Dice are fickle creatures."

Rather then what you intended, the book explodes in a fluttering of paper,

spread all around the area. Your other arm tingles, and you lose 5 more

EP... and your torso tingles slightly too. Something very strange is going


Treya says, "Ok kid, see that huge crate over there?"

Treya points out a wooden one in the corner.

Upton, things don't go your way, and you blow fifty credits this time... the

dealer remains neutral faced and inquires as to wether or not you'd like to

play another hand.

Keisho Blinks "I never felt tingly before when doing this.

Treya says, "Don't worry about it, make that crate explode."

Keisho says, "The crate? What do you want me to do to it?""

Upton puts on his game face and says, "Damn right I will." and plays

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 6.

<OOC> Upton says, "Too bad this isn't craps."

Keisho concentrates and trys to hit it with an electric shock.

Keisho rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 4.

The cards seem to pity you a bit, but you only make back the first 30

credits you lost on this hand.

Upton continues.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 4.

<OOC> Upton says, "Dammit..."

Keisho, the air fizzles, then pops... lightly. Nothing really happens, and

it becomes obvious how little practice you have at this. Your hips tingle

slightly.... Renald is still pointing that tube at you, at different angles.

Treya says, "Go on kid, try again.,"

Treya says, "If you get good at this it'll help out alot."

Another 50 credits goes into the toilet. "Run of bad luck sir." The dealer

says. "Sure to lift up. Care for another hand?"

Upton says, "Another hands partner."

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 5.

Things go better, and your 50 credits are returned.... so far you're still

in the hole by 50, however.

Upton goes for another hand.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 1.

Keisho says, "Well it is good practice... I dont remember it feeling like

this before though... But i haven't done it much."

You manage to win again, but it's still a rather small sum. 25 credits go to

you this hand.

Upton plays again.

Keisho gazes at the crate and trys to open it.

Keisho rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 1.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 6.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Kid stole your critical, Upton. heheh"

<OOC> Keisho says, "ha upton stole that 1 and 1 from you :)"

Another paltry sum goes to you, and you've now broken even.

<OOC> Upton says, "Well kid, 7 still wins me some credits."

Upton is now getting in the swing of things and goes another hand.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 4 and 6.

Upton gets stuck with a pair of 2's at the end of this hand

Keisho, there is an audible build up.... and then the crate explodes from

the inside. The shockwave knocks you flat, as well as Renald and Treya.

Shrapnel is thrown around dangerously. You get a headache as a massive

tingling invades your body, but you're not sure if that's what you were

feeling before, or a concussion.

Treya blinks and sits up slowly, giving a low whislt.

Upton, just as you had broken even, you lose 60. The fates of Texas hold 'em

are fickle this afternoon.

Upton sticks with it and does another hand

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 2 and 1.

<OOC> Upton says, "Booya!"

Keisho says, "Wow... Well that opened it..." He blinks picking himself up."

Lady luck smiles at your dogged persistence this round. You go all in, and

your opponent follows suit... only for you to lay waste to him with your

hand. You've won 200 credits this hand.

<OOC> Keisho says, "lol out of curiousity any part of me not tingled


Keisho says, "That was interesting... wonder if I can do more than blow

things up."

Keisho, you still feel rather tingly as you stand... and your balance is

off. Way off. keeping your feet becomes an issue, as you trip over your own

clothes, which no longer seem to fit quite right...

<OOC> Upton says, "Up to 390 if I am keeping track."

Keisho Blinks. "Why are my pants too long."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Yep, I believe that's correct."

Keisho reaches down and pulls up his pants cuff.

Upton grins, "Fortune favors the bold and fools and I've been called both.

"So it would seem, sir. Another hand?"

Treya grins happily and stands. "Good work Renald!"

Keisho gazes at his foot.

keisho, as you bend over and reach down, something seems to be in your way.

Something on your chest... something kind of heavy. You also notice your

foot is at least a size and a half smaller... and you weren't very large to

begin with.

Upton goes for it

Treya, it's very obvious by this point that Renald's device worked. If not

quite as soon as it was intended too.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 5.

Treya grins a bit.

Keisho blinks at his foot. "Why is my foot smaller too now?" (voice

different?) "And this shirts hanging in the way too!" He pulls at his shirt.

<OOC> Upton says, "Well if ten was 60 then I think I am still in fairly good


It would seem that fortune also like to laugh at the greedy... as you lose

170 credits on the next hand...

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Ah, if it were that predictable."

Upton says, "Damn, a full house is usally a winning hands unless a 4 of a

kind appears and lo ya have it."

Upton tries another hand.

Keisho says, "Captain?.... He gazes at the captain trying to judge how much

smaller he is."

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 2.

Treya says, "This my boy, is what we call karmic punishment."

Yes Keisho, your voice seems to have changed... it's not only a little

higher pitched, but the resonance is different too. You sound like a girl.

Upton pages: Does he feel a void between his legs yet?

Upton, you gain another 35 credits this turn...

Upton is up 15 credit, "A couple more hands and I'll think I'll call it a

day," he plays again.

You paged Upton with 'He hasn't exactly checked. And he's a bit too

disoriented from an explosion followed by massive changes in his body to

notice the minutia of his situation.'

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 2.

A small win of thirty. Your opponent has not faired as well, and has 80

credits less then he started with.

Upton grins and goes another hand.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 3.

Keisho gazes at his chest in a bit of shock.

<OOC> Upton says, "Hmmmm, I don;t think 8 has come up yet."

You lose what you gained last hand.

<OOC> Upton says, "But htat was a 9.."

Upton goes another hand

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 3 and 2.

Keisho, the more you stare, the more you think that's not just a baggy

shirt. Especially given that it feels kind of... tight.

this hand you win 75 credits. your opponent seems ready to quit, as his luck

is running dry.

<OOC> Keisho says, "well you shrunk me enough all my clothes are baggy I

think but there are definently lumps where it should be hanging flat over my

chest lol"

Keisho says, "Captain???" He unbuttons his shirt and gazes at his chest."

Upton says, "Ready for one more hand partner?"

Treya says, "You're going to remain like that for a length of time I've yet

to determine."

<OOC> Upton says, "Can I spent energy to up my chances for winning?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Yeah, it's all baggy, and yet the chest area seems

a little tight anyway."

<OOC> Keisho says, "I opened the shirt lol"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Freakin A hold on. Issues."

<OOC> Keisho says, "no worries oh wonderous dm"

Treya says, "Since you were so keen to see a pair of those before, I think

you'll enjoy one of your own."

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Keisho says, "I was just.." She pouts."

Treya says, "Peeping on the women who came to get away from that."

Keisho, opening your shirt, you see a pair of.... it takes you a minute to

come to terms with it, but they're definately boobs. You have no idea what

the sizes are or how they're determined, but they're kinda... big. Treya, on

the other hand, can tell that they are around a C cup.

Upton, your opponent looks unsure, then sighs. "One more."

Keisho says, "Im Im a girl...""

Treya says, "Yup, a looker too."

<OOC> Keisho says, "I still have my star tattoo I assume."

<OOC> Keisho says, "how much smaller did I get?"

Keisho says, "But boys are going to look at me funny and stuff.""

Keisho does pose a rather striking figure, not exactly a super model, but

thoroughly above average. As you take the time to look at yoruself harder,

you notice you've lost probably three inches in height, and around one or

two in width.

Treya says, "No I imagine they'll look at you appraisingly."

You paged Upton with 'Your opponent is a go for one more hand.'

Upton plays another hand.

<OOC> Upton rubs the dice, "Come on babies don't fail me now. Then says,

"Watch the botch.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 2.

Keisho says, "I don't even have any clothes that fit now. Are you sure I

have to stay like this? Girls are kinda wierd. I mean I like them... but I

don't want to be one.""

And, dissapointingly enough, it turns out to be a thoroughly average hand.

You gain another 25 credits, and your opponent excuses himself from the


Treya says, "Yes well, we'll get you some clothes."

Upton take his credits which now total 365 if my count is right, "Well looks

like I'm a head of the game.

Keisho pouts. "Renaldo... what do you know about my DNA? You were saying its

wierd... WEll wierder now probalby." She pouts some more.

Renald finally gets up off the floor. "Whew. So it did work! I wonder what

kinda data I got?" He stares. "Oh. Hum. First time I've seen those so up

close... shouldn't you be covering them up? That's what most girls do...""

Upton heads over to the 5 credit slots to try his luck.

Keisho Blushes birghtly and closes his shirt!

Treya says, "She should, and you'd best not be looking up close again

Renald, or you'll get a pair of your own."

He rubs his chin. "An interesting proposal, but they seem rather


Upton plucks 5 credits in and pulls the one armed bandit to see if he gets


Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 2.

Treya says, "Actually they're rather nice when used properly."

Upton, many of the slots have themes... you do indeed put in five credits,

however, your gambling skill can't help you at a slot machine...

GDMSkullrama rolls 3d8 and gets 8, 7, and 1.

Keisho Blushs again. "I'm not going to find that out!" He turns back to

Renaldo "What were you saying about my DNA? Can you tell me anything about


Nothing matches.

Upton plucks another 5 in.

GDMSkullrama rolls 3d8 and gets 1, 7, and 6.

Again, nothing.

Upton plucks in another 5.

Renald brightens and flicks his helmet. "Oh that! Your DNA is really

interesting, actually, but I have no idea what the heck is up with it! I was

kinda hoping to take the scanned data I got from you just now and go over

it... it could lead me to entirely new ways of thinking of things! breaking

the boundries of physics!" Funny, it seemed like he was allready doing that.

GDMSkullrama rolls 3d8 and gets 7, 8, and 8.

You roll a lemon, then two 7s. Nothing.

Keisho says, "Alright maybe I could talk to you in a day or two and see if

you learned anything... I think someone did something to me.""

"Well, that would make sense. You certainly aren't human if you were born

like that."

Upton goes over and tires his luck at black jack.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 6.

Good ol' Blackjack. However, this hand is a push.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 2.

Upton goes for another hands and gets very lucky.

Keisho Rolls up his pantlegs a couple times and grimaces a bit at the touch

of his ankle. He follows suit rolling up the arms of his shirt. He pulls the

pants up and looks around for something to tie them with.

Treya says, "Don't bother with that kid, follow me."

Treya heads to her quarters.

It isn't a black jack, but manage 21. 80 credits go to you this round.

Upton tries another hand.

Keisho head after Treya. "Yess maam.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 3 and 1.

Treya rifles around tossing out...a bikini top and bottom.

The house busts. You get 50 credits. Black jack seems to swing your way alot


Upton goes for another hand.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 1.

<OOC> Upton says, "push"


Keisho blinks, "Whats that?"

Upton does one more

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 2 and 6.

Treya says, "Your clothes for the day."

You push again.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "My my, Treya. So vengeful."

Upton goes for another hand

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 2 and 1.

<OOC> Treya says, "hehe"

Upton bet a good amount and gets lucky,

You win again, 90 credits this time. "A lucky win streak, sir! Care for

another hand?"

Keisho says, "But will they even fit?"

Upton says, "One or two more."

Treya says, "Yup, they're older ones."

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 3.

<OOC> Upton says, "push."

Keisho blushes. "Ok... Turn around."

Treya does so.

You do indeed push this time.

Upton tries his luck

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 4 and 2.

You push again. Usually that doesn't happen so often, but the cards are a

bit strange today.

Upton goes again.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 6 and 3.

Keisho strips off his clothes until hes naked then pulls on the bikinni

bottom feeling really wierd doing so. Then he grabs the top and trys to put

it on as well but can't tie the back.. "Could you help me?"

You manage to lose 30 credits on this hand. "Too bad, sir. Perhaps your luck

will pick back up. Another hand?"

Treya turns around and nods, tying it for her.

Keisho says, "Thank you I feel silly.""

Upton says, "says, "You betcha, " and bets a bit more risker this time


Keisho, this also happens to be your first experiance with that fact that

your genitals aren't exactly what you remember.

Keisho blushes again.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 3 and 1.

Treya says, "There we go kid."

<OOC> Keisho says, "oh yea... lol :) Tried to ignore that... though the

bikini makes it really apparent."

<OOC> Keisho says, "I meant he tried to ignore that."

The risk pays off... you gain 60 credits.

Upton goes for one more hand.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 3.

<OOC> Upton says, "Push"

Keisho gazes down at himself. "I look funny... I sound funny... and I even

walk wierd..." He scratches his head. "Even my hairs different."

Treya says, "Yup, yup, yup, and yup. Let's hit the co-ed beach huh?"

Keisho says, "Ummm The coed beach? Couldn't we just go to the ladies area?""

Upton pushs, feels a bit luck and tries to make a really risky bet this

time, "Luck be a lady tonight.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 4 and 4.

<OOC> Upton says, "Push."

Actually, Upton, you manage to lose 20 credits and that first hand.

The next time you lose 15.

Upton makes one last bet.

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 2 and 1.

Upton hopefully bet a lot.

That last one ends up nicely done. another 90 credits enters your pockets.

The casino hasn't beaten your pants off... this time.

Upton is at 655 credits now.

Upton takes his winning, "Well, I like that. Is there a co-ed beach around?

I feel.

<OOC> Upton says, "Er feel like celebrateing."

Treya grabs Kei by the wrist and drags her down to the co-ed area.

"There certainly is sir. Just head out onto the street and follow the signs

to the beach access. And do come back if you feel lucky again, tonight we'll

be holding our unlimited shrimp buckter after 9:00."

Keisho says, "Fine fine..." He blushes as he leaves the ship in the skimpy

bathingsuit. "I feel like I'm naked.""

Upton says, "I'll consider it, thank ya kindly,"cashes in then heads back to

the hotel room and gets his speedo on, puts on some sandals and sunblock,

grabs a beach towel and heads to the beech.

Treya says, "Well that's kinda the point."

<OOC> Upton says, "Watch your pronouns Keisho."

Upton keeps his hat on for flavor.

<OOC> Upton says, "Did Treya put on a bathing suit?"

Keisho says, "Sheesh I look like one of the cheerleaders at my school or


<OOC> Treya says, "She's been in one the whole time"

Keisho says, "Well minus the clothes of course." He blushes again."

Treya shrugs and lays a towel out near the water. "You'll adjust."

<OOC> Upton says, "And I havn't seen her yet in it."

Keisho says, "I'm glad my brothers and friends can't see me.""

Treya laughs and lays down, stretching out in the sun.

<OOC> Upton says, "Let me know when I arrive at the beech."

Keisho Sits on a towel and pouts a bit.

The beach is still full of people, even in the afternoon. A few men whistle

as they walk by the two pretty ladies. More then a few stare, some openly,

others trying to hide it.. though not well.

Treya grins a bit at the attention and just relaxes.

Keisho blushes... and lays back on the towel and trys to ignore the


<OOC> Upton says, "I'll guess I'll pose my entrance."

Keisho, you're fairly sure a few girls are staring at you as well. Some with

obvious jealousy... others not unlike the men.

Upton arrives at the entrance of the beach quite a few minutes after the

ladies lay down. He walks down the beach looking for a nice place to lay

down his towel.

<OOC> Upton hopes the GM with pose an interesting reaction of the beach

goers for my arrival.

Keisho lies there with Treya just feeling tottally wierd. He closes his


Treya stretches after a couple minutes and heads to the water.

Upton pages: Hmmmm, for the sake of drama, can you have my girl magent

effect a certain PC?

Upton, many of the spots are allready taken. For a second you think you see

Treya heading to the water, but people walk in front of the image.

You paged Upton with 'UNfortunately, I tend to leave those decisions in the

hands of the PCs, unless of course the effect is obviously mind-altering.

You can always talk to her about it in a page though.'

Keisho follows Treya into the water after a second

Upton looks for a spot near a direct line he thing he saw Treya at.

There is such a spot, and two towels are laid out on it allready. Your eyes

catch a young, blonde lady leaving the area towards the water.

Upton lays his towel nearby those, puts his hat and other stuff on it and

then goes into the water checking out the cute blond chick, trying to assess

how old she is.

Keisho... the water is cold. Of course, it's the ocean, so that's to be


Upton, the girl seems to be younger then twenty... maybe Keisho's age? As

you get closer though, you are fairly certain the other woman with her is

indeed Treya...

Keisho blinks as the water hits him, the cold isnt so wierd... but rather

the sensation on body parts that hes never had before.

Upton notices she is WAY to young for him then swim over to Treya, "Hey

captain, fancy meeting you hear.

Treya says, "Oh...hello."

Keisho Swims a bit in the water away from Upton and Treya.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "17 years old is way to young?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "OF course, I suppose Keisho's age was never really

specified was it?"

<OOC> Keisho says, "well hes not rich lol."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Well, I suppose it is rather young for Upton, I

checked his sheet again just now. Thought he was about five years younger."

Upton is apparently has a very attractive body that is usually cover by

baggy mechanics coveralls(Apperance 3 very attractive), "How are you doing?

Treya shrugs treading water a bit. "Doin alright..." She's what one would

term, "smoking hot" especially in a tiny bikini.

<OOC> Keisho says, "well=17 looks like 18 for all practical purposes... he

can try if he wants shut down lol"

<OOC> Keisho says, "keisho isn't looking for a sugar daddy just yet. lol"

<OOC> Upton says, "Nope, I chose my age cause it give me time for a couple

of masters at MIT or what ever terran tech instuites that are galactically

renown and a lot of varied job experiance around sol."

<OOC> Upton says, "App four or so?"

Upton tries not to check out the captain to obviously.

<OOC> Keisho says, "my apperance is 9. :)"

<OOC> Treya says, "four for me"

<OOC> Upton says, "It only goes to 6..."

Keisho pages: obviously lying lol

<OOC> Keisho says, "oh... umm yea the dm said that with the change its 6

thats it... ;) teasing of course."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "heh."

Upton says, "Would I be to forward if I say that ya look stunning?"

Keisho is indeed very good looking after the change, but her companions have

her rather outclassed as far as that goes. The group seems to be attracting

rather alot of attention from the beach goers with the addition of Upton.

Treya shrugs. "You're welcome to say whatever you like."

Upton says, "Nice collection of scars too. I can tell you been in some nasty


Treya shrugs again. "It comes with the business."

Keisho begins to body surf in the waves ignoring the captain and the upton.

A younger man, looking maybe 19 years of age, is pushed forward by his

friends. Looking back at them, he sneers, but when he turns back he is all

meekness. "Um, excuse me, uh..." He looks down at Keisho in the water.

"...Can I ask what your name is?"

Keisho says, "Uhh ummm hi... I'm ahh Keiko.""

You say, "Oh.. well.. I'm, uh, Kent. I was wondering... what you're doing


Keisho she bobs there in the waves her blonde hair tied back as it was


Upton nods, "Bounty hunting is nasty work, my grandpa use to tell stories of

some ancestors o' mine who were in the business.

Treya says, "Ahh..."

Keisho says, "Oh I'm visiting the resort with my umm mom." she nods over at


<OOC> Upton says, "How old is Treya?"

Kent looks up. "Oh! Uh. Well. Um, hello there, Mam. Uh, your daughter is....

very pretty."

Database checkpoint in progress - stand by...

Database checkpoint complete.

Treya blinks. "My what?"

<OOC> Keisho says, "oh I wasnt by treya when I said that. lol but no


<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "It's undetermined. Like any mysterious beautiful

ship captain. Heh."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "It didn't seem that body surfing would you quite

so far away."

Upton blinks looks at Treya then looks at Keisho(Do i notice the birthmark?)

<OOC> Keisho says, "dms choice its more entertaining thsi way."

Keisho turns away from upton so that he can only see the other side of her

face. hee

"Uh... your daughter." He moves his head toward Keisho.

Keisho says, "Hi mommy." She grins."

Treya says, "...oh right! Well you be nice to her or else."

<OOC> Upton says, "Do I need to roll to see if I spoted it before she turned


<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "I suppose you can, sure."

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 5 and 1.

He swallow. "Of.. of course."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "You don't manage to spot it."

Treya says, "Good."

Keisho laughs. "Oh don't mind mom she hasnt hurt anyone for at least a

week." She smiles sweetly.

Upton tries to figure out what is going on and comes to the conclusion that

Treya is helping out a younger friend.

He turns back to 'Keiko'. "Right..." he swallows again. "So.. Keiko.. I was

also kinda wondering if you were gonna be around... for a few days?

..There's this place... and it has really good food, and, I kinda thought

maybe, you might wanna go? I mean, I'd pay... and it's not like there's any

pressure or anything, I just kinda wanna... talk.. uh, get to know you...

see if we maybe have anything in common..."

Upton says, "Friend of yers?"

Treya says, "Yeah weren't you listening? She's my kid."

Upton as that in a very low voice that won't carry to far.

<OOC> Upton says, "How alike do they look."

Keisho says, "Well I know we aren't staying long at the resort... so I don't

know it sounds like lots of fun but I'm sure that Mom would never let me.""

Treya says, "Oh go have fun Keiko! We'll be here another couple days."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Frankly, they don't really. It could always be an

<OOC> Treya says, "hehe"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Well, that's a bit up to you, but you don't have

any real evidence. You're free to be as suspicious as you judge Upton would

reasonably be."

<OOC> Upton says, "Cultural arts roll should give me and insight on Japanese

naming conventions and the like righ?."

"R.. Really? Then you'll come?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "You can roll that if you want."

<OOC> Upton says, "IIRC Keisho and Keiko are male/female version of the same


Keisho Gazes at the guy... realizing that she has no excuse now.

"Alright.... What time?"

Upton rolls 2d6 and gets 3 and 2.

<OOC> Treya says, "It doesn't really work like that in Japan lol"

<OOC> Upton says, "Hmmm, I forgot to add cultural arts, however I did make a

mind roll with 2 to spare."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Well, you can certainly notice the coincidence

that the name is similar to Keisho, but a female name."

"I.. I can come get you at 8:00, where do I pick you up?"

Treya gives the young man her hotel room.

Keisho says, "Oh at the resort call up from the desk.""

Upton says, "That kid mentioned that she was in trouble but damn....

<OOC> Keisho says, "Im not even sure if theres a japan in this reality lol"

"Okay! I'll see you then!" He walks back over to his friends, one of which

says audibly "Dude, way to go!" To which he responds "Shut up, jerk!" and

punches him in the shoulder.

Upton muttered that.

<OOC> Upton says, "There is. It on Terra"

Keisho blushes brightly as he leaves.

<OOC> Keisho says, "is there a terra?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Yep. That's where Upton is from."

<OOC> Upton says, "From Texas"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Terra Prime if you wanna get technical."

<OOC> Upton says, "Or Sol 3."

<OOC> Keisho says, "oh well it could be Texas is a star system lol :)"

<OOC> Keisho says, "ok didnt know"

Keisho says, "Damnit... now what am I going to do."

Treya says, "We'll get you a nice skirt."

Keisho says, "Oh that will be lovely because I haven't a thing to wear.""

Treya says, "Something native, I like the clothes here."

It's at this moment that a girl walks up, probably around 25... "Hey, we put

up a net and we're looking for players... wanna play Grav Ball?"

Upton wade up to Keisho and gets a good look at her.

Treya nods. "Sure."

Keisho "Can I get my hair and nails done too?" He rolls his eyes. "And

whatever other mysteries await in the beauty saloon."

Keisho says, "Grav ball?""

Upton looks at the girl, "Sure I'm game.

Treya says, "You can stop bein such a smartass."

<OOC> Upton says, "Do I notice the birth mark now?"

"Nice! I think you guys round out the teams." She looks over at Keisho.

"You've never played?"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Depends on what keisho's actions are to hide it,

if any."

Keisho says, "Sorry mom."

Treya says, "No, she hasn't."

Treya swims out, ambling toward the net.

Keisho says, "I haven't."

Upton heads for the net as well

Keisho Follows treya out of the water.

<OOC> Upton says, "To bad I forgot to put ranks in sports ;P"

Upton gives "Keiko" a good looking over.

<OOC> Keisho says, "no more actions... hed probably notice at some point

probably looks cute on me lol"

<OOC> Upton says, "I looked up the girl's name and it means Respectful

child, or obedient child."

<OOC> Keisho says, "to my mommy lol"

Upton says, "Well "Keiko", we'll have to talk later"

Keisho says, "Don't know what about."

"Well, it's not that hard. You hit the ball over the net and try to get it

to hit the ground on the opponent's side... you can't use your feet or catch

the ball, you can only hit it. The same person can't hit it twice in a row,

and your side can only hit it three times before you lose the point by

default. Where it gets interesting is the Grav ball..." She display a ball,

with a variety of buttons on certain areas around it. "The buttons set the

grav rate on the ball... they'll make it ligher or heavier depending on the

button! If you get good, you can manipulate the ball to go just how you want

it!" She points to her belt. "Everyone wears a force dampener for safety, in

case it goes for anyone's face at 5 grav or something... they'll only take

one impact every hour or so, but they usually absorb enough to prevent any

real injury... and that's about all there is to it! Any questions?"

Upton says, "About the trouble you said you were in later, your lucky your

mother is allowing you to go out on a date."

Treya says, "Let's play."

Treya heads to the girls side.

Upton looks at her, "I've played a bit in college. Lets go.

<OOC> Keisho says, "basically volly ball? lol"

Upton goes tot he guys side if they're doing battle of the sexes.

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Basic volley ball with a gravity manipulation


Keisho heads to the girls side after Treya.

<OOC> Keisho )

<OOC> Upton says, "Hmmm, can I use Body+Electronics for this game?"

The stage is set and the Grav Ball battle begins!

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "For the sake of manipulating the gravity correctly

by identifying the buttons.. I'll allow electronics, actually. You'll still

need coordination, to pull it off, but electronics should help somewhat. You

may not get your full bonus though, we'll see."

Treya's team wins the flip for the serve, and Treya is first up. The serve

has an advantage because they can more easily select the button to press on

their hit.

Treya adds a spin as she hits it over...swapping it to a level 4 setting at

it leave her hand.

<OOC> Upton says, "Well body is 4 Electronics is 3 and +1 for mechanical

genius for a total of 8 which should make me fairly competitive."

Treya, roll 2d6.

Treya rolls 2d6 and gets 1 and 6.

<OOC> Keisho says, "lol just play al :)"

The serve leaves Treya's hand, but quickly arcs downward as the increased

gravity takes effect. Almost too quickly, as it very nearly hits the net.

plummeting straight downon the other side.

GDMSkullrama rolls 2d6 and gets 2 and 1.

One of the men on Upton's side dives under the ball and hits it with his

doubled fists, switching the ball to -2 and causing it to fly several feet

up into the air.

<OOC> Keisho says, "should I explode it on the mens side? giggle"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "That might be a little... uh... messy."

<OOC> Keisho says, "GIRL POWER!"

also because only scoring when you serve would take... way way too long."

you, until one of the other girls says "Isn't he a little old for you?"

<OOC> Upton says, "How old does she look?"

Everyone winds down for awhile before they're ready to start the game back

up again. The sounds of the game fill the beach as the sun gets lower in the

sky... finally the game ends and everyone heads home... there's only about

an hour left before Keisho's date.

Keisho says, "That was fun. Maybe i will try out for the team when I get

"Hey girl, you can be on our Grav Ball team anytime! Way to go!"

Keisho says, "Thanks!""

Nothing yet Upton. Your com has no messages.

Upton then heads over to Treya, "Honestly, I think we need to talk somewhere

a bit private. Diner on me after you fit your daughter out for her date?

Treya shrugs. "A free mea;s always good?"

Upton says, "Good, hotel lobby in an hour sound good?"

Treya says, "Fine by me."

Upton says, "Then you pick the place"

Keisho pages: lol it occurs to me that a female version of me out there is

probably even more use to the bad people that want me than a male version...

they probably already got some of those... cant clone it true... well theres

always altering an egg.

Keisho says, "Oh yea... the date..." She suddenly remembers."

You paged Keisho with 'Could be.'

Upton says, "Call me up if its something formal."

having fun....."

<OOC> Treya says, "Well if I'm there then say maybe. But I can't commit."

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "And unless Treya suddenly has a change of

schedule, I doubt it... we'll peg it as more of an 'it could happen'"

<OOC> Treya says, "later"

<OOC> GDMSkullrama says, "Allright, goodnight folks."

Treya has disconnected.

<OOC> Upton says, "Ok, we'll see then. With luck we'll play. Night."
