Subject: The way Wyatt sees it...

Someone purposefully damaged Rocinante, and endangered his crew. Doesn't matter the intent... He aims to make trouble for them. :-)

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: The porridge thickens...or the plot...or something is thick...

The situation they were in wasn't a good one no matter how Wyatt cut it. They were likely sabotaged, floating dead in the Black. They had a contract that was growing thin by the hour, and Asher was still on that dirtball, probably in more danger than them and without anyone to watch his back.

Sighing less than audibly, the captain returned to work on the communications system. The work was interrupted by frequent trips to the windows so that Wyatt could scan the Black visually for any sign of an approaching vessel. It was on one such trip when Sam called him back to the console with some urgency in his voice.

Once there Wyatt looked at the record of the sent message and frowned.

"Can you determine what it was that was sent?" he asked, rising up from where he had leaned over the screen to block out the reflection from the overheads.

Moments later an incoming wave flashed before their eyes. To Willow...urgent...Wyatt frowned and glanced at his friend for a moment before stepping towards the com. However before he could call down to Willow, Andrew walked in, and Sung's eyes immediately went to the device that his wife's uncle carried with him.

Bowman placed the device on the console near where Sam and Wyatt stood, then stepped back a bit.

“Here is what we found… nasty device designed to kill us in about 8 days after dustoff” He lifted the scrapper’s gel pack carefully and turned it over showing the lipstick mark, “whomever it was couldn’t resist leaving their calling card.”

Wyatt tilted his head to the right side just a bit as he digested the lipstick mark and the explosive. They lived with danger each and every was their line of work. But having someone try to blow them up, and all evidence pointing to one school teacher on Frisco...that chapped his hide.

Wyatt clicked the internal radio. "Everyone to the bridge. Pronto."

Deactivating the com, Wyatt glanced at Sam. "I don't think we've got pending visitation no more. Seems to me that we was expected to blow, and I'd be willing to bet good credit to gold that the outgoing message we just witnessed was a notification to our saboteur that their little device had been discovered. All the same, keep an eye on the sensors."

Once everyone arrived, Wyatt very carefully revealed the lipstick to the lot of them.

"This is trouble with a capital T," he said, scanning the crew with a level eye. "The evidence points to Bridgette in my mind, and that puts Asher at risk. Sam's still checkin' but I believe that a message was sent out by way of a warnin' lettin' our little school marm know her explosives had been disarmed.

"If my suspicions are correct, then we need to be prepared for more shenanigans comin' from all angles. Everyone goes armed from this point on. Let's get Rocinante on the move again. I don't take kindly to being set to explodin' and want to get back to Frisco as quick as possible so as I can address this situation proper.

"I aim to make trouble now."

Once the others have left again to do their bits to get the ship back in order, Wyatt pulls Willow aside. "You got a wave, Willow. Marked urgent. 'Spect you should likely look to it."

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: Char'll move in.

With the instruction from their fearless leader Char immediately takes up his usual position at the front. His Khukri blades at ready, the mountainman approached the door and paused about ten feet off to allow Da'Moon access. When the image of a calm grove that was a location he'd discovered as a child came to mind, Char was taken back years to the day of discovery.

He was barely eight summers, a ragged boy dressed in oversized cast-offs with strips of cloth wrapped about his dirt-covered feet. His hair was long even then and the practice of allowing it to hang into his face was already well established. It was spring, and the camp of Eildirn Forcasl was stirring in preparation for a long march--the mercenaries having been hired to establish a stronger hold along the northern edge of the forest against encroaching hill giants. Everyone was excited, and the young Char was just as infected by the buzz as everyone else.

So caught up was he that he'd stumbled head-long into the grip of Hantel Booras, a man who was more an ogre than any of the beasts Char had heard about. Hantel was the type that gave hired swords a bad name, and Char was among those whose life he liked to make miserable. This time, however, Char accidentally stumbled on a clandestine meeting betwee Hantel and some shady fellows he didn't recognize, and Hantel had sprung after him like a wolf after a lame deer.

The ensuing chase had kept Char ahead of the man by mere paces, and it wasn't until the young boy had slipped beneath a rotting log and fell down a rather steep incline that Hantel had been forced to find another route buying Char some time. The grove had been a place that the future ranger had happened on shortly after by breaking through a thick hedge, and it had proven and ideal place to hide. He'd felt safe there; watched over by unseen beings. He'd slept there and ended up spending a couple of days within the peaceful harmony of the sanctuary the whole while worried about the hateful man discovering him and wringing his neck.

Giving his shaggy mane a slight shake, the ranger was brought back to the present just as Da'Moon swung the door to the chamber open. Slipping past the little rogue, Char darted to the right with his swords ready. His icy eyes took in the pattern of the decoration, the stairwell, and the door quickly (OOC: Whatever passes for a Spot check please). Making certain that they weren't going to be attacked by something the little dragon had missed, Char quickly moved to the foot of the stairs, cautiously moving up them to a point where he could crane his neck and see further up the stairs without putting himself out of sight of his friends. (OOC: Move Silently).

Subject: To save time...

I think that is something that Char would fight for as well, should the discussion come up. He isn't about to leave the unknown at their backs, though he'll ask if there's any magic the wizards have on hand to either guard the entrancemto the tower, or set an alarm of sorts before they attempt it. Either way the swords remain out and at ready until otherwise stated.

I might continue this adventure after the holidays are over. It depends on the overall interest. I need at least the cast of family...and time...there's always that necessity.

Ok everyone. That means that for one action pertaining to this crisis each of you get a bonus to your die roll because you can bet Wyatt is using leadership right now to get the ship fixed and keep the crew safe.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Wyatt's turn to be twitchy...

Wyatt deactivated the com and leaned his left forearm against the cool bulkhead while he stared back towards the engine room. The concept of sabotage to Rocinante made him sick to his stomach. The ship was more than a home. She was part of his family and to hurt her was to hurt him. Who would want cause them harm? What could be the purpose behind the sabotage?

There was a short list of suspects as far as he could conjure. There were those who didn't want the ice transported, that dangerous school marm Bridgette...there was the possibility that whatever Willow had involved herself in had somehow leaked out into the rest of the crew's business, or even that one of those they'd just dropped off had left something behind...

Wyatt turned and abruptly headed for the bridge. It really didn't matter who it was right now. There could only be two reasons in the captain's mind to disable a ship in the Black. The first would be to come and board it, while the second would be to keep them from reaching their destination in time. That meant that there were two immediate dangers even above the threat of life support failing. The crew had to be prepared for danger, and those on the asteroid had to be warned of a possible threat.

"Sam," Sung drawled as he strode through the door. "Before the systems failure, did our scanners pick anything unusual up? Short range, or long?"

(OOC: answer pending...)

"OK, so here's the gorram situation as I can conjure. I want you strapped for bear, and yer eyes peeled. I ain't positive, but we could be in for some company. I don't know whether it would be fromm whatever Willow's gotten herself mixed up in, that she-devil Bridgette and her lackeys, or some other evil, but we ain't floating dead in the water for no reason. Wolf said he double checked everything before we left, and he believes that there's ill play at hand.

"Now, seein' how I might just be twitchy 'bout our situation, the only other reason I could conjure would be to keep us from droppin' our cargo. Whether that be for financial purposes, or to bring harm to those at the mine, I don't know, but either way we've got to find a way to warn 'em."

Sung gave his friend a hard stare. "We need the radio fixed. You see what you can do about that an' I'll bring everyone else up to speed."

(OOC: Room for discussion, suggestions, etc.)

Wyatt didn't usually carry while on board with just the crew (he always carried when they had passengers--and he asked the crew to as well), so he dropped down the ladder to his bunk and loaded himself up. All of his weapons were in place including his shotgun. He wasnt about to risk anything to chance.

Outfitted properly, he regained the hall and sought out Willow and Ma.

(OOC: To Willow)

"Willow, we got more trouble than first expected. I want you to stay in your bunk until this blows over...and keep the door locked. Don't let no one in 'cept they be one of the crew." (OOC:If she asks for more of an explanation, he'll add that he suspects they might be hosting company soon).

(OOC: To Ma)

Wyatt may have been the captain of Rocinante, but he rarely, if ever, ordered Ma around. "We might be subject to an infiltration attempt, so keep yourself armed and ready, please. I don't know who, or when, but why else would we be sabotaged? Yes. Wolf thinks that our current situation is due to sabotage. So, be careful, and arm yourself."

(OOC: back by the com.)

The standard procedure for a space walk includes carrying a ship-linked com set. Wyatt didn't want anyone to experience anything in the Black without being able to communicate their needs inside. So, upon returning to the bridge to help Sam with the communications, he hit the com again.

"Wolf?" Wyatt's tone was level...even a little cheerful. "Is Andrew with you? Yes? Good...couldn't find him, so how's it going?"

(OOC: I doubt mechanical engineering will do much for the communications systems, but he'll give it a try while he's on the bridge. He'll do whatever he can to get the sensors back as soon as he can as well.)

Where do you get the cortex rule changes Roger? It's probably obvious, but I thought I'd ask. Oh, and if I used leadership when would I be able to use it again?
