Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Big Grin

Wyatt kicks his booted feet up onto the copilot's console and lowered the brim of his hat until his eyes were comfortably covered.

"Give us a smooth ride, Puhn Yo," he drawled to Sam, his outer countenance belying the thrill of being free in the 'Verse once again.

Audalis is the resident gaming world here. There's a link right next to HOME on the nav bar at the top. We don't pay for the art as it is all volunteer work, but if you get an inkling we most certainly won't complain.

People’s Ward | Old Pen’s Stable | The City of Davnor | Sendria | Claise 24th, Viladay, 452ER, 01:42am | Cloudy, Snow-Covered, and Storming

The storm rocked the stable and caused no end of work for Old Pen, Ruthtundrel, and Tyrugyn in calming the horses whenever the thunder sounded, or the rafters creaked ominously as though the whole roof would cave in. After a few hours, Old Pen dropped heavily to the bale of hay across from Shiften and let loose a long sigh while rubbing his knees.

“I ‘ate nights like t‘night,” Old Pen declared wearily. “Kith-Jora be playin’ a nasty game wit’ me t’night, he is.”

People’s Ward | Old Pen’s Stable | The City of Davnor | Sendria | Claise 24th, Viladay, 452ER, 01:43am | Cloudy, Snow-Covered, and Storming

The Commerce District | Andre Magnotta’s Estate | The Empire of Drannon | The City of Drefast | Claise 4th, Viladay, 452ER, 8:00pm | Abnormally Warm

Andre Magnotta visibly sank back into the lush cushions, a thoughtful expression on his face. He’d known Ethain since he was a boy, and though he felt the loss, the merchant was above all a practical man, and he knew that Caterina did not live a peaceful life. So, he turned his thoughts to the possibilities his gossipmongers provided, reviewing all that he knew in search of anything pertaining to that which his guest had mentioned. After a few minutes of silent contemplation, he slowly shook his head.

“My Lady, I am distraught at having to report no such name as coming across my ledgers,” Andre turned his bulging eyes towards the paladin. “But there are strange occurrences happening even in my world that could, perhaps, either be odd circumstance, or perhaps something more.

“Though I don’t deal in precious gems, I have some acquaintances that do, and there has been some amazed discussion surrounding the severe increase in the purchase of gemstones of late. It would seem that there are no gemstones left in any market, and the instant any hit the market, they are bought up. Oh, but the stones being purchased are only of the clear kind: diamonds, rubies, emeralds—adding to the mystery. Lapadists are thrilled, obviously, but more than one noble has been put out, and jewelers aren’t able to fill their orders.

“I’ve also heard that—and I apologize for this—the slave trade has increased in demand. Slaves are being bought up all over the realm, and then being marched into the wilderness. I’m afraid that since I don’t deal anywhere near that particular market there’s not much more I can relate there, but, perhaps in relation, stock animals are also being bought up, no expense spared. Oxen, draft horses, even elephants and other exotic animals capable of managing large loads, or displays of great strength. These, too, are being carted off into the wilderness.”

Andre shifted his great belly and twisted slightly in the cushion, his face turning red from the effort. “I’ve also heard that across the land, there’ve been a rash of contests and quests being offered up by rulers that have sent adventurers and champions alike running about like women during Festival. It is a veritable hornet’s nest of activity the realm over, and it has caused me no end of headache. I’m struggling to keep a compliment of guards on each caravan, these quests have got them with gold in their eyes.

“I’m surprised you’ve not heard of this, Donna Caterina,” Andre raised his bushy eyebrows. “It would seem that even our kingdom is not immune to this particular event, though what the specifics are I could not tell you. Many a young man has vacated their post in the city guard, riding caravan, or tending their familial duties to answer the clarion call. It is a sad event if you ask me, though people are talking of it as though it is sent by the gods and will result in great wealth for all who participate—I’ve even heard tell from some financiers that it could result in a shift of wealth—Alanus protect us from such evils.”

People’s Ward | Old Pen’s Stable | The City of Davnor | Sendria | Claise 24th, Viladay, 452ER, 12:02pm | Cloudy, Snow-Covered, and Storming

“Information?” The Lady allowed a ghostly smile to touch her full lips. “I don’t pretend to be involved in the art of burglary. This is why We are hiring you, Sir. The only information I have to give has already been provided. This is Amer’Loc we are speaking of, and even a person such as myself—new to this land—can tell that it is a veritable fortress through the gates of which one only passes if they’ve an invitation, or are in chains. How you propose to get to the Catalyst is completely up to your discernment and best judgment. What the Catalyst is? Well, We’re confident that you’ll know it when you see it, but in case you do turn out to be too blind to tell, the necklace that you have just set yourself up to earn is endowed with a special enchantment that will warm it when within proximity to the Catalyst.”

The Lady Solan swung her legs from Old Pen’s lap and stood in such a manner as to cause Shiften’s mouth to momentarily dry despite his bravado.

“Our discussion has kept me from my guests, and at such a crucial time of the evening,” she lifted her skirts enough to show her dainty ankles—one of which bore a thin silver chain augmented by a series of seven set diamonds—and curtsied as a superior would to a lesser noble. “Good hunting, Shadowfriend.”

There was no pomp, no display of smoke and lights; she simply vanished, and Old Pen’s chuckle sounded against the storm raging outside. The man’s expression grew curious, however, and he cocked his head to one side as he peered at the doors.

“When d’ it start comin’ down?” he mused distractedly.

People’s Ward | Old Pen’s Stable | The City of Davnor | Sendria | Claise 24th, Viladay, 452ER, 12:05pm | Cloudy, Snow-Covered, and Storming

The Palace District | The King’s Palace | The City of Ethryn | The Kingdom of Ertain | Claise 24th, Viladay, 452ER, 7:34am | Partly Cloudy and Snow-Covered

The king’s face softened as the request formed, and when Lloyd had finished posturing, Strongblade gave a brief nod of his head.

“These are trying times, and your behavior is not unlike that which I’ve found myself want to do for these past few hours, only for us men—those of us others look to in times of trouble—we cannot afford to lose our composure lest greater things become lost in the chaos that follows.

“Rise up, Lloyd, and accept the document. I’ll have a carriage fetch your Cynthia to our palace where she will be kept as a lady-in-waiting to the Duchess Veldego.”

King Strongblade placed the paper in the bounty hunter’s gloved hand as he rose. He met Lloyd’s gaze squarely as he continued.

“I’ve nothing to offer by way of leads, von Sctreider, though I wish that I did. We’ve whatever detail we can provide at your service during your investigation, for I wish nothing to be a hindrance. Where, and how, would you like to begin?”

As the king spoke, Lloyd heard the door open and the whispers of the captain speaking with someone just beyond, presumably to give orders to fetch Cynthia just as the king had promised.

Subject: We return from our commercial break to find...

Inorlia (a Class B Planet), North Pole | Stardate 51717.9 (09-07-2374) 12:22 hours (3 hours of air remaining) | The Guardian remains in orbit around Inorlia a Class B Planet within two light years of Koralis within the Bajor Sector, The Alpha Quadrant.

Die Rolls:
Ensign Malton (Athletics [18]; Awareness/Notice [7])
Ensign Goodhart (Awareness/Notice [13])
Ensign Shral (Awareness/Notice Tricorder [23])
Ensign Pierce (Awareness/Notice [14])
Ensign Ral (Awareness/Notice [16]; Phaser Rifle [20])

There wasn’t any argument from Ensign Shral or Ensign Ral. Both men hunkered down behind the stalagmite-like columns that protected them from the wide open expanse of the ravine, their weapons at ready, but a look of trepidation on their faces. Ral Tarwin was a pilot, and though he’d been trained in such mission requirements as were required during a time of war, and those that being on board a ship requiring away missions would require, he knew he wasn’t nearly as prepared for such encounters as this presented as those from TAC and Security would be.

As Ensign Malton crept slowly forward, Curzon looked up and spoke through the comm. unit built into the suits. “The readings are stable. I believe they are emanating from the two foremost pinnacles at the edge of the precipice.”

That left Zackery Malton with the first challenge: descending the ten meters to the jutting plateau below. Slinging his rifle, Ensign Malton turned and lowered himself over the edge. Straining to position his suit so that he could peer down past his feet, he saw that there were two small boulders at the foot of the grade that could offer him some initial cover. It was a painstaking climb down, but one that he made without slipping, or faltering. By the time the ensign reached the bottom, his shoulder muscles burned from the exertion.

Positioned at the foot behind the two boulders, Zack took his phaser rifle in hand once more and checked its setting to make sure it was on the highest deliverable power rating, and the modulation was set to random (a little trick that Star Fleet had learned when dealing with the frequency-shifting personal shields of the Jem’Hadar). From his position, Zack could see straight out to the rocks Shral was referring to as emanating the energy signature. He could also see to the left (which was pretty much a few meters and then some of those teeth-like rocks before the plummeting edge of the precipice. To the right, however, Zack’s vision was blocked by a series of larger boulders some seven to eight meters away and about four to five meters high.

“Still no modulation,” Ensign Shral reported over the comm. link.

Those still atop the cliff peering down also had a fairly open view of the plateau, and despite the tension, they could find no reason as to why Zack shouldn’t proceed.

At a half crouch, Ensign Malton leveled his rifle and proceeded from behind the boulders, creeping out into the open, and sweeping the area with his weapon. He was about fifteen meters away from the cliff’s edge when Ensign Shral suddenly broke the silence.

“A new energy reading! To the east!”

Ensign Goodhart shifted his gaze past the boulders that had originally blocked Malton’s view of the east, and through the sights of his rifle, he spotted two gray-garbed Cardassian soldiers apparently having emerged from thin air. The positioning of the away team left Malton out in the open with no cover, Ensign Goodhart in the easternmost point, and it a prime position to open fire, Shral slightly to the southwest of him, Pierce further to the west, and Ensign Ral furthest to the west with no shot. Without moving, three of the four perched atop the cliff would have no shot. A quick—nearly subconscious—assessment of their position told Ensign Goodhart that those atop the cliff would still retain half to three-quarter cover, even if the other three shifted to his southeast, and manned the ridge.

For his part, Ensign Malton swiveled at the warning from Shral and spotted not one, but two, Cardassians creeping forward, leveling their weapons at him. He could run back to the cover of the boulders at the base while firing at the enemy, just full on sprint back to cover without returning fire, or not worry about finding cover and drop to one knee while opening fire.

Ensign Ral was quick to respond. Perhaps it had been due to his heightened sense of dread, or perhaps it was his pilot reflexes kicking in. Whatever the case, the man rolled on his heel and came up swiftly in a full run that took him around his companions and into position with his rifle leveled downward between two small columns atop a rather bulbous formation. The high-pitched whine of his rifle sounded and a flash of yellow phaser fire leapt from its mouth to strike the closest target in the leg. The Cardassian’s center of gravity shifted with the impact, and he toppled to the left, his legs swept out from underneath him. Though the body bounced once when it hit the hard surface of the rock, it lay still afterwards.
