Topic: Natural Disasters ~ Warm Fuzzies
Subject: Warm Fuzzies for Olan and others

After reading the quick blurb in the RDI contest thread, I wanted to send out some warm fuzzies to Olan. I hope all is well with you, and with any other Innmates that might be going through some natural disasters right now (e.g. tornados, flooding, etc.)

Topic: Realms of Twilight - A Journey Begins
Subject: Raina ~ And now for your viewing pleasure: A Dance with Death

Panting, Raina hauled herself onto the ledge next to the half orc. The ledge was unremarkable, save for how small it was. Her reprieve was short lived when the two large creatures in the air began to swoop towards the party. The half orc was already lowering a rope of his own to the two stuck on the side of the cliff. She discarded the rope and turned her face toward the sky.

The wyverns were approaching at an alarming speed. Wicked talons extended out from their bodies, and they looked intently upon their prey. Raina briefly thought about the crossbow on her back, but knee jerk reaction had her pull her rapier instead. She barely had enough time to steady herself before the creature was upon her. The Burglar had a momentary impression of wings, teeth, claws and skin before she was knocked across the body by something. Claws raked against her leather armor, but failed to penetrate the soft skin beneath. Her body spun uncontrolably on the spot. As she attempted to ascertain what was happening, Raina lashed out wildly with her rapier. It made contact, but the lack of reverberation through the blade told her that her blow had been shallow.

As she regained her balance, Quarlin’s head popped over the ledge. The half orc had succeeded in assisting the small Umbral onto the cliff ledge. Quarlin immediately began readying his crossbow. At least, Raina was relatively sure that was what he was doing, her head still spun from being whipped around. The second wyvern’s form disappeared down the face of the cliff, and where moments before the half orc was supporting the next climber from a kneeling position, his form flew towards the edge of the cliff.

Not good.

His face contorted with concentration, he had managed to stay on the ledge and not let go of the rope. Both wyverns prepared for a second pass. Raina again thought of the crossbow at her back, and knew there would be no time to pull it, load it, and fire before the second attack from the wyverns.

"Damn! He's been hit!,” Quarlin exclaimed as he moved behind the half orc, “Keep pulling, Gronz, I'll cover you and him as best I can."

Raina positioned herself between the wyverns and the two already on the ledge. There was no reason for those doing the rescuing to be flung off the face of the cliff. She felt terribly exposed. Her eyes tracked the wyvern that had flown at her; it appeared to be reading the next attack. “Stay away from the edge, Quarlin,” her mouth curled into a sardonic smile, but she didn’t look back at him, “ This bloody thing might knock me back into you, so mind your feet if that happens.” She shifted her weight so she was on the balls of her feet and waited for the beast to come to her.

Come and dance with me.

((OOC: Raina will use all of her acrobatic and climbing talents to stay on the ledge and attack (and, with luck, not get knocked into the other members of the party) This may be a stretch, but since she has fast stealth, I would gather that she knows how to make fluid moments without being detected, so if at all possible, she’ll try to use that to her advantage and feint (or ghost, rather.) right before the wyvern gets to her, enabling her to cut with her rapier and avoid a blow from the wyvern. ))

Subject: speaking of unfinished...

on a different but oddly related note:
This is a friendly reminder from one crewmember to all of the other memebers of Destiny ~ please give a little short paragraph or two about how your character works with others. It'll make things so much easier when we start Destiny's Flight if we can have some sense of 'we've been aboard this ship with eachother goin' on three years now!'.

What else do we need for the ship? I liked all of your suggestions, Al, and would love to incoperate them into Destiny.

A couple more prices, but I really couldn't find any more information on Alacrity's suggestions.

More gear for the ship
Cortex Terminal, Black Box ~ 747.2
Wound Armor at 96 tons per point ~ 960
Stun Armor at 19.2 tons per point ~ 19200
(big ouch)

I also like #2.

As far as your list goes Al, I had no idea how to deal with those ~ apart from the Cortex link, but even then wasn't sure as to price list. I didn't know how equipped Destiny was before we got to her!

Does the Scrapware not count as a parts cache?

Subject: The List

Here is the ever hopeful list. I looked through both the Serenity book and the Six Shooters and Spaceships book. Let me know if I've left out a big glaring hole, but I *think* I've got it covered. Like I said, ever hopeful ~ this can definatly be trimmed down.

Plus I'm not sure what we would have picked up in the 2-3 years of Destiny running.

Hoping for at least 6 to 9 months of supplies.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Tess's Blurb

Let me know if you guys have any questions about Tess ~ after all, we have known eachother for a couple of years now. Feel free to PM me if you want to reference some ... old joke, or situation in our upcoming game.

Tess? Oh sure, she’s easy enough to work with. You could say that she gets a little flip sometimes, but her general demeanor is fairly pleasant. Her humor can get pretty confusin’, it usually sounds just like every other gorram sentence that falls out of her mouth. I think we’ve all lost our lunch a time or two after one of her stunts, but she says she’s keeping that to a minimum. Well, she says that right after sayin’ “Devil made me do it”. Don’t talk too much ‘bout her life before the war, but she’ll jaw your ear off about cows and horses if you give her an opportunity.

It’s pretty easy to see that Tess considers Destiny her home, and everyone on it her family. That girl loves this ship. She and the captain have some kind of history. Not that kind of history, they were in the war together. The two can go rounds, giving each other a ration of luh suh, but nothing gets ugly. Naw, she’s not one to rile very easy, but if you do get under her skin, an’ she goes real quiet, you’d better hide. But like I said, pleasant enough. Don’t go worrying your purty little head about starting an argument with her. She’s even-tempered, sometimes crazy behind the wheel, but still pretty even-tempered.

I like it too. Can't wait to start. Although that might mean that I need to write up a character blurb.

Shield ~ what should we do? Do we pull them up, or let them climb up on their own and attack the wyverns? I don't think I'll be strong enough on my own to haul them up.

Topic: Tales of City Fantastico
Subject: Katie ~ HIT THE DECK!

Pleased with her motivational speech with Downhouser, Katie skated onto the ice into position. A sense of relief spread across her as the captain moved away from her position to faceoff with the biggest member of their team. She glanced over to Downhouser, hoping against all hope that he wouldn’t flub the first pass. He looked like his brain would split open, and he gave her something that might have been a nod. It looked more like a head spasm.

As the puck left the referee’s hand, the captain speed off towards Danyael, and Downhouser let loose.

Fortune had been with her when she decided to look at Gerald, for not a moment too soon did she realize that the puck was heading straight for her face. Not wanting to have the same fate as one of the druggies from the last hockey match, Katie flung herself to the ground. The ‘little flat ball’ made a deadly whistling noise as it shot over where she had been standing. Skates appeared in her field of vision, but before she had a chance to react, another resounding boom echoed across the ice. Moments later, the skates bowled over backwards. As she struggled to get up on the slippery surface, she saw that the very same destiny that would have been hers was now a Wildfire Defenseman’s. The puck slowly spun to a stop, touching her stick lightly.

Seizing the opportunity, the red head streaked towards the goal. Just one point. Just one point. Just one point. A blur sped past her, and she had a fleeting image of their, so far, deadliest team member. Not wanting to wait for an opening, she recklessly fired off a shot. It didn’t look like it was going to pass the goalie, but Virago had hooked his stick around the Wildfire member and had started swinging him away from the goal. He arced towards the Fantastico goal, and his screams quit just after the buzzer went off.


“Downhouser!” Katie cried as she skated towards the bench, “YOU GOT ME THAT BALL.”

Danyael immediately dove into his ‘in between period pep talk’, "Well, two periods down and we're all still in one piece. That's got to count for something." He kept looking at each of them in turn as he spoke, "When the Canadian sent us out on the ice, he likely expected us to end up much like those thugs we saw when we came in. You guys have eliminated two of his players, and quite spectacularly at that. Now let's finish this. They can't score if they can't stand right?"

He paused and smiled mischievously at Virago and Downhouser.

"I'm sure the two of you can see to that, right?

"Katie, it would be my pleasure to run interference for you. You're our best shot at a few more points, just to make sure we win."

“Right, so far I am your best shot. In fact, I’m the only shot right now, which is just fine,” she began. Her eyes sparkled momentarily before she went on, “However, Downhouser and, um, Virago really have been running the best interference for our team so far. Come to think on it, Vitali took one out too. Besides, we wouldn’t want to mess up that pretty face of yours. Especially since their captain looks like he wants to take you into the locker room and have his way with you.”
