The Lost

A New Mission, A New Day

So Many Options...

(please refresh any spent Campaign points)

You find your confinement to ship a slightly uncomfortable affair on your trip home, and you do find yourself missing the clean air and open skies of Morvik’s homeworld! come to think of it you also miss Morvik, the new King has grown on you over these past few weeks and part of you wishes you had stayed on the planet and adventured with him. But reality kicks in you have plans to return, a stolen ship to return for, and this situation with your Grandfather has not sat well and your dreams are haunted by Ripley’s words… Did your Grandfather really order your death? Is he prepared to sacrifice you to better the family, and do you want to know? do you want to confront him?

“Tr Darro eh?” Yardley asks “Whats so special about that place? you thinking of taking up that job offer?” he pauses then continues “I’m sure we can call in there on the way… Hey didnt Jefferson get rolling drunk there and roll the Cass for some big cred???” he laughs and gets back to flying

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“not the job offer, i made a promise that i would deliver something to a native. i keep my promises.” roger “Besides might be a good bit of shore leave on the companies dime, better than Audl Lota anyway”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC are you waiting for something from me?

A New Mission, A New Day
 

Actually yes! I was waiting on some direction from you as to where you want to take this! Im happy to follow my arc but, that may lead you pkaces you may nit like! So if you want some adventuring best now before we start down the dark road!!!! But info please mate you should still have the files so look for somewhere to go!!!

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC i was intending to go fuffil the promise made at tr darro and get snow some medical help there and then head to audl lota to see if roger can pick up the trail of snows origin. then if we hit a wall or it goes cold head back to ironknight to have a little tee a tee with the grandfather. that was what i was intending to do but you know however much or little you want

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC im still a little confused. let me know what else i can do to get this rolling again?

You are in jump for the required week, and soon find yourself dropping out and blasting your way back to Serevoic, and as you get closer your sensors show it is still hot, there is still a sand storm, and it is still not very nice. your stop there is as brief as it can be and soon you find yourself leaving its sunny climes for the smoggy and polluted Lazuteson. your trip to the jump point and from the corresponding are smooth though as you are in final approach to Lazuteson the Gavel receives a Hail “Unknown Vessel you are entering Lazuteson space please submit your credentials and prepare for inspection – this is Lazuteson Customs Department Vessel CC21 – please respond?”

COMMENTS
The Shark Class Customs Patrol from relative new comer Neu Vitaralu Armouries is a new fitment to an old design, she is designed to ply the lanes between systems looking for pirates and performing customs checks. This newly fitted vessel boasts relative comfort for the 4 crew, which is made up of Captain, Gunner, and two Marines as well as a small 5 ton cargo/holding bay as well as a small brig, the Sharks also come fully equipped with a GCarrier which the two Marines are certified for.
The Sharks are protected by level 1 armour, and offensively they boast a Triple Laser turret mounted on the front facing plates.
This small but clever design has seen numerous orders placed from as far as District I13, coming in at just under 55.0 and due to their old but trusted hull design we would expect these ships to be patrolling the borders and lanes for many years to come.

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“acknowledged this is the gavel. ready to receive coordinates for docking or landing” roger grimaces “they would be ok people if they would take the giant stick out of their ass” he continues off the radio

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“Received Gavel – though maybe you misunderstood over, you will maintain coures on provided vector and make yourself available for scan and search over!”
CC21 replies Yardley turns to you and says “Stick, more like thruster pod! – what did you do to piss them off last time we were here?”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“we left on super friendly terms last time. beats me.” roger thinks on this for a second “maybe the revolutionaries tried it and failed” he shrugs “regardless lets do what the good people say”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

Callaghan chimes into the bridge “We had better be careful! This system has gone bat shit crazy! Seems the local crime lord has gone awol, as too his nephew! And now every two bit with delusions of grandeur are making claims. Maybe you should check the newsfeed every now and then!”
The internal comms goes quiet. Yardley just gives you a look “well we cant go much further without fuel – best make this short and sweet with no dilly dallying!”

The comms crackles to life “Gavel you are to remain on course and prepare for interseption in approximately 3 minutes – there you will heave too and present your vessel for scan, where if clear you will be assigned a docking bay and an escort to the surface Cc21 out”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“CC21 understood” roger replies “continuing on course” roger sighs and turns to yardley “we should find snow a doctor. i dont like leaving her in suspend.”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“Might be a good idea Rog” Yardley replies “That is if we are allowed to stay here long enough!”

the console beeps as it starts to detect the scan, a few seconds pass and the comms crackle to life “Gavel this is CC21 please prepare to be boarded we have detected suspected risks in your low berth! do not try to our run us as we now have you locked into solution” at that word your console buzzes and glows red as it detects weapons lock “Gavel please comply and respond”

Yardley looks at you “What did you stuff in the low berth?” he then looks over his shoulder “Jefferson!”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“by the lady if there is anything that can go wrong it will.” roger growls in frustration “why couldnt it all go smooth” roger says as he gets up and slings his Assault rifle. “by all means come aboard” he says into the comms. “you know what i dont feel like staying here for a minute longer than we have to. i have set up a firing sequence for our little guests. just lock and engage sir if it comes to that.” he sighs “ill go meet them at the door”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC what did we stuff into the low berth (is that the place where snow is or is that somewhere else?
also will be away for the weekend will try to reply by phone but i wont have reliable internet

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC ok am back

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC okay I have some terminal net issues right now iinet no longer can help me and they have no idea what is wrong with my service! so I will try to update this as best i can, I will email you from work should the situation grow darker!

back to the game!!!

In low berth is both Snow’s body and Ripley’s corpse

Within 10 minutes and several scans later the airlock activates and with a hiss the Iris opens up standing in the doorway flanked by two armed marines is a tall beautiful woman, you guess in her late 30’s dressed in a neat and tidy uniform! “Are you the commander of this vessel?” she barks at you, before letting you speak/respond she continues “Your low berth its this way isn’t it?” and with that she and her guards start to march off towards where you have the bodies stored!

A New Mission, A New Day
 

Roger moves quickly to intercept her before she goes down the corridor. slaming a hand into the wall to block her passage he smiles “now ive been nice i let you in withtut a fuss, i even greeted you without weapons but you and me are going to have a little talk right now. before i let you take one more step on this ship i want to know exactly who each of you are, what authority you serve, what exactly you are looking for and finally what the lady you are doing just barging onto a potentially hostile ship like some rank armatures? haven’t you ever heard of pirates pretending to go along with custom ships just so they can get docked with them? lady keep you ive never seen such a terrible display. your two gun bunnies here barely checked the room at all and i believe that one” he says pointing to the guard on the left “has still got his safety on. look how about we start again with you cutting all the blustery crap and simply talking to me about your problem? then together we can work out a solution” he spreads his arms out wide and a smile with actual warmth graces his face.

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC well im guessing that your internet has been troublesome. just let me know when you are able to get started again

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOCWOO HOOO IM BACK!!! and with a decent interwebs!!! will start tomorrow when I get home!!!

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC whats going down you said we would start up again 4 days ago

A New Mission, A New Day
 

And you are so right! how remiss of me!

“Im Commander Tabert and I have the unpleasant task of controlling these lanes – unfortunately getting the hump from your type isn’t on the pay schedule, now if you please stand back and let professionals do the job!” with that she pushes past you and makes her way to the Low Berth section…

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“fine you can look but your guards stay here and im coming with you.” roger says making it clear that denying this request would lead to problems. “also would you mind telling me exactly who’s authority you represent?”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“Um you seem rather questionative for such a young one!” she snaps, then continues “I am Commander within the Customs office currently on assignment to this hive of villianary!”
she finishes

A New Mission, A New Day
 

She continues down to the bay and goes over to the two low berth beds, she first looks at Snow “This one seems to be in a bad way! this bed wont do her no good for much longer – but that’s your business” she pauses and moves towards Ripley’s berth “And this seems to be already dead! Care to explain…. wait what the???” quicker than you can react she whips her side arm from the holster and has it drawn levelled at your face “Now explain young man – and this better be good!”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“explain what? a dead man in our low berth? where else would i put a dead man?” he smiles “or are you asking who he is? if i killed him? the late passenger in our low berth is an escaped prisoner. this ship has been asigned to hunt down said prisoners. we found him on a planet rather lacking in technology, he was trying to pass himself off as some kind of wizard. anyway he killed the king and they hung him for it. we took his body as proof of job completion.” he smiles again and shrugs “not as exciting as my previous job but its much less likely to get me killed. any other needless questions you want to ask?” he says “or is it ok if we go on our way?”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“I know who he is!” she snaps back at you! “Ever since he went missing several months ago this system, and those close by have been thrown into turmoil! with every two bit crook getting delusions of grandeur and every two bit crime lord thinking he is king of the manor. and now you swagger back into the picture with his body in tow for all to see! tell me this do you have any interest in this system or even this subsector?” she pauses and tries to ascertain wether the importance of this sinks in. “Now if you can provide me with those papers and follow my course we can put down on Lazuteson and sort all this out, oh and you may even get a reward!” she takes a stand back and awaits your response

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“look as long as i can prove to my boss that we found and brought him in i’m happy. we only took his body because we didn’t want to leave it to those savages that hung him anyway. if you can guarantee that ‘sorting’ this out wont take any more time than refueling the ship then i promise to cooperate in any way you require. until we can leave again of course. if you can recommend an excellent hospital for my companion i will be most appreciative. i may even find it in me to be extra cooperative.” he smiles “this way to the bridge” he casually walks off towards the bridge

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“It is I who is in position to dictate terms here not you! Bargains struck will be in my favour, not yours and if you are lucky and Co-operate you may well get away from here with your life and ship intact” she turns and lets you lead her to the bridge, “Nice ship here, we are expecting our consignment to arrive in the next few weeks – how does this model run?”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“ha as if” roger scoffs at the idea that she would seize the Gavel “firstly taking this ship would invite one shitstorm of legal matters. tell me do you have a corserc office on this planet?” he smiles knowing that a planet with this tech level would have at least a representative “and secondly if i were you i would stay as far away from this whole mess as possible. why don’t we just deal with this all quiet like and then the many ruffians, thieves and thugs that inhabit this stretch of space wont kick up a fuss. i particularly don’t want to attract the attention of whoever the dirtbag worked for. the fishes big enough to pull the stiffs chain tend to have deep pockets, real good hearing and a total lack of interest in minimizing casualties among innocent bystanders.” he grimaces " if we can do whatever the hell it is you want done with the maximum about of haste and the minimum amount of profile i and the rest of the crew would greatly appreciate it."

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“Off course we do!” she snaps back quickly, “who do you think is supplying us with this class?” she quips, “as for Ripley, well he did not work for anybody he was the Boss! that is why his body and how it is now handled is so critical, and that is why my pay grade is higher than yours bounty hunter!” by this time you have made it to the bridge and Callaghan offers up the ships manifesto and papers. She takes the documents and looks them over in a cursory manner “Yep everything seems fine here! if you would like to follow us down to the planet we will organise a berth and also medical assistance for your crewmember” she smiles at Callaghan and says “Good work Captain”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

“ahh i was like you once, thinking that someone that styles themselves as the boss doesnt have a boss. regardless of what you thought ripley was just a step in the food chain, a food chain that ends in a doomwhale by the way. balthazar ripley payed dues to the Family just like every other so called crime lord in this subsector. i know, i know most people think they are half myth half folk story but in my line of work i have run into more than one family bounty hunter looking to collect a bounty card on the same dirtbag i was after. but regardless as long as everything is handled quiet there shouldn’t be a problem.”

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC I will post shortly (I have just received a long awaited 2nd hand copy of a Starport Supplement so im devouring that to fully flesh out Lazuteson Starport)

A New Mission, A New Day
 

OOC ok cool looking forward to it
