The inner room is cooler than the sauna but overall, still warm to the skin. The pool is clean and inviting but there is no movement within and you can see to the bottom that nothing seems to reside there.

The curtains are a solid blue from this side, making it impossible to see through them. The only way to see what is in the rooms beyond is to pull the curtain back or walk through one.

Asante walked into the room and put her bag down on the floor by the bed. She then reached up to her hair and started pulling out the pins in her hair, letting it all come down slowly as she talked.

“Captain. Let me get straight to the point then. I am not much of a person for flirting or being coy. I find things work a whole lot better when people are open and honest with each other, and I want to be open and honest with you.”

Her hair now sultrily down around her shoulder, she comes very close to the Captain, looking up into his eyes as she fiddles with the buttons of her jacket, the smell of her perfume filling Jon’s senses, “We have five days to go before we reach the other ship and I would like to spread as much time with you, here in this room, writhing in as much pleasure as we can give each other. I am not looking for a relationship, just sex and lots of it until we reach port.” She removes her jacket and tosses it aside, revealing a see through chamois underneath and a whole lot of promise.

She moves to kiss Jon.

The Church of Jeff Kay

The church of Jeff Kay believes that Jeff Kay was a former President of the United States back on Earth that was. He was assassinated while on the way to make a book deposit and yet somehow no one knew who killed him or why. But according to church doctrines, evil servants of Satin called republicants were behind the plot. According to the church prophesy, Jeff Kay would return during a time of crisis and lead his faithful against the republicants. The Church draws a lot of followers who are down on their luck, not well educated, hate the alliance and usual stick to border planets. They are considered a thread by alliance as they tend to stockpile weapons to fight the Republicant war on day.

How could I kill off my favourite playboy gunslinger? Relax! What is the worst that can happen?

On the note of the future ...

Archangel has sent me a pilot for the game so I have a replacement for Tess.

The next campaign I have planned is entitled "Who Mourns for Adonis" and it will the first one that is entirely written by me. It will be a series of short adventures based on a central premise. Adonis is a planet developed for agriculture and it was the first "bread basket" planet created with the goal to feed the systems as they developed. It has been around since the beginning of colonization, one of the planets that took well to terraforming and thrived.

But no more. The plant life slowly started to to wither on Adonis and a plant disease called "The Blight" spread. No one knew why but attempts to use fertilizers and sprays only made things worse. Alliance eggheads came in with a solution that was gonna fix everything but in the end, they just sped up the process and made the disease terminal.

So Adonis is being evacuated. Ships are being granted bounty by the head for pulling people off the planet and alliance ain't running anyone beacons or asking questions. In about 30 days, the planet will be unable to sustain life.

Ain't really an issue for you and yours until Dodger, your old contact and job finder calls you asking straight up for a favour. Seems his teenage niece got involved with some boy from Adonis and she ended up going with him to the family farm. Except it ain't no farm and it ain't no family either. It is some cult that is holding out on Adonis expecting this to be a sign of the second coming of some savior of their beliefs. So Dodger wants you to go to Adonis and do whatever it takes to find his niece and get her out. The fool boy too if necessary. He is willing to pay well and remember the favour.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: Ba ba ba da ba ba ba da ......

Time is not our friend.....

It was a plan, after a few changes and input from the crew and hashed out a few times. But in its essences was.

Put the passengers and non-combatants into the caves. Have them and Matherson look for Mole (Willow, John, Ma, and Jessie)

Wyatt, Asher and Wolf stay outside to draw mercs into a guerrilla style combat and protect Roc.

Tess flies shuttles to use the missile against the Merc ship. After that she either lands and joins fighting or flies interference until she is shot down.

Use bombs around the ship to kill off as many mercs as possible. Let Asher and Wolf go wild with automatic weapons. Use the anesthetic from the infirmary - attached to the fire suppression system in the cargo bay to knock out a few as well.

The bodies of the three mercenaries were brought to Willow and John who hastily opened up their skulls and took at look. There were fragments within the brain, and at first John was not hopeful of being able to salvage much from them. Then the second and third had different fragments and between the three he found enough of a micro-receiver that he was beginning to think that maybe if he was really smart, and he was really smart, he could rebuilt it.. He took the fragments and started to work with them at once.

Wolf examined the armour of the two soldiers in hope to use the it but both had received enough damage to crack or severely damage the plating within. Furthermore, when Wolf was examining the armour, he realized that it had a tracking tags built throughout the armour as well. This would mean the mercs would know exactly where he was if he wore it and it would take too long to extract all the tag from the armour at this point.

Asher and Jessie worked together to plan the bombs in a pattern around the ship as Asher beset thought the Mercs would approach. If they did as was most likely, these would serve well. John and Wolf quickly rigged up a wireless transmitter but the haste meant that it was an all or nothing deal when the button was pressed.

Tess worked with the young men and loaded the decoy missile now loaded with explosives into the drop bay of the shuttle, Decoy missiles were designed to be dropped and fly so as long as she was in a straight path to the target, it should fly clean. Sheldon rigged a magnetic guide to the head of the missile but warned it wasn't really strong enough to be relied upon.

Ma changed into her pink suit of armour and armed with Bessy, was ready to head to the caves with the others. Her and Wyatt briefly had a silent standoff both knowing what the other was thinking. She wanted to stay and fight. He wanted her in the caves to deal with the traitor. They had been together so long, watching each other but in the end, Ma relented with a single nod and hugged Wyatt like she was never going to see him again.

Willow checked in on her patients. Havelock was up and managed to put on his military jacket over the bandages that she had put to prevent the wounds from opening again. Amber was awake and moving, drink water from a metal cup that Havelock had filled for her. The two had been talking quietly when Willow came in and Amber looked more steady than she had been since walking onboard Rocinante (was it 12 hours ago?). "I really screwed things up this time didn't I Willow? I mean Doctor ... Willow"

(assuming Willow will talk to patients. Havelock pleads fit as a fiddle and Amber feels she is able to walk now and be able to control her urges. Havelock looks to get away to fight again)

Havelock finds the Captain as they are making preparation. " Captain. Don't let the uniform fool you, I can still take orders and I place myself under your command. Give me a weapon and tell me how I can serve you best?"

(If there is objection) "Captain, I appreciate your intention but I have had my dance card punched with Death for awhile now. She knows me, I know her. Let me go fighting to the end, not hiding and waiting for her. I will not let you down."

As Jessie waits to go to the cave, she asks Asher about that gun he offered before. "Preferably something easy to shoot. I wasn't planning on going to a shoot out this morning!"

John is the last to be ready for the transport to the cave. He managed to put together the receiver from the parts and it powered up when he added juice. He smiled satisfactorily and then carefully packed up everything to head to the cave with the others. There he would start to work on the signal.

LV-426, Rocinante Cargo Bay, 12:45 pm PT

The radio crackled and sparked to life.

"Approaching target. Vector 12 on final decent." A feminine voice calls out.

"Oh Honey. Everyone in position. We are going in hot and all our calls will be early."

"Should nuke it from above." A grim voice says.

"What was that!" A harsh voice calls in anger.

"Marv just said this should be fun." Another man's voice responds.

"Cut the chatter! Ground troops with stunners only. Everyone else small arms only! You hear me Hartigan! Better not see than cannon of yours."

"Wouldn't dream of it Boss. Can barely lift it anyway, old man like me."

"Keep the channel clear for essential comm only."

Then the radio goes silent.


The sonic booms of three ships crash through the atmo. The ship sensors picks up the ASREV first, followed by a CL-54 Cargo Lifter (with a mag lift that could easily pick up Rocinante). Then a large ship comes within range. A Victoria Class Corvette - used by special forces in the war to move troops discreetly from planet to planet. It is capable of holding 50 troops plus a command crew as well. A lot of fire power and a lot of soldiers.

The party has officially started.

OOC: Other than the ones in the cave - I need positions, equipment and intentions as the ships come down. If I missed something, let me know. If you are vague, I will assume and you know what happens then.

Subject: And we are off

OOC: I spread out the conversation over the course of the new so to make things flow)

Angela stopped her musing over the princess when she realized that Jon and the bodyguard were at an impasse over the luggage. She tugged her hat brim down a little more over her face and stomped down the ramp sturdily.

“No worries, Cap’n, “she assured Jon,” I’m on it. We’ll get this stowed away inna cargo bay in no time. Uh, Miss? One these needed in your room? Won’t all fit but you prolly have yer essentials in one of ‘em.”

Lilianna turns to Angela and stares for a bit, as if unsure what to say for a moment. She looks ready to cry for a moment and then says, "Oh! Yes. The brown bag will do for now. I will be able to come down and get items another later I assume?"

(Assuming a yes)

"Then that will be fine. Thank you so much for asking. That was kind of you."

As the last of the luggage was brought into the cargo bay, Angela thanked anyone who helped, before turning wide-eyed to Seth and the Simons. “Now, I’m guessin’ you all have lockboxes for yer weapons, or do you need to use one of ours? Not wanting any discharges during flight, an’ all that. Bad for pressurization.”

The brothers looked at each other and did that talking without speaking thing again. Then AJ, the oldest says, "Yeah. " " puts down one bag and opens it. "There is a shotgun, pump, and a saw off double barrels, plus my service revolver and my rifle. All have the locks on the triggers, the rifle is disassembled and locked in the soft case." He points as he does and then looks at his brother who looks sheepish.

Rick drops his bag, which clatters. " Umm. Shotgun. Pistol. What he said although without trigger locks and the pistol is loaded. But the safety is on. I think. Can I get a receipt please?"

AJ rolled his eyes.

Asante offered her bag up but said plainly, "I am sorry but unless you consider a pair of stiletto heels and a fully stocked makeup kit dangerous - I'm rather unarmed."

Seth makes no move to disarm. He continues on with looking over the cargo bay until he realizes that everyone is looking at him. he bows respectful before saying "I cannot allow to be disarmed. I am entrusted with Miss Fairchild's protection. While I appreciate the assistance of the Captain and his crew, it is my honour to protect her I I will not let that fall to another man. I assure you that I will not discharge my weapon without dire need and that it is a pulse plasma gun so it can not harm your ship while on the lesser setting. I do hope this is understood and acceptable as without your consent, I will have to call my employer and tell him this deal and transport is not to continue."

(assuming a "what are you expecting? or Why so worried?")

Seth looks perplexed and then annoyed, "I am sorry. I thought you were informed. There have been threats on Miss Fairchild's life. Enemies of Mr. Steele and the Baron have sworn that they will abduct her before the wedding. That is why we are doing this late night pick up. Were you not informed of this?"

(Assuming a No and a lot of swearing)

Seth shrugs slightly and continues, "Oh. Well that is the situation. We can continue and cease this arrangement now but I don't your employer or mine would be happy with that. You no doubt capable men, with some background with this kind of work - hence the need for a public relations man on a transport. "

There was silence for a moment as everyone looked to Jon. An awkward silence of a second or two only as Jon could ponder the ramifications of cancelling or going forward. Then Lilianna spoke up in the silence, as if to break the ice.

"I'd really like a tour of your ship sir. I have never been on a firefly before."

The PA crackled to life overhead, “This ain’t a firefly, Princess! This is a Whitefire!“

Lilianna looked up and then to the captain, "Oh. I am sorry. I didn't know. I didn't mean to offend."

Jon winced again turning to Seth, “ Our ship’s Engineer rebuilt most of Destiny by herself and she’s a bit protective. Perhaps not unlike someone calling Hermes Brand Luggage suitcases.” Jon smiled and continued, “ Whitefire ships are rare and we are the fastest freighter in the verse, but we may not have a published deck plan, but we will see what we can find.”

Seth smiled for a brief moment - just a moment and then returned his attention to the matter at hand, "It is good to have pride in one's workmanship. It shows strength of character and commitment. Your crew speak well of you by their actions. Shall we continue on the journey Captain?"

(I am going to assume a yes or else this voyage just got really short. The tour will take place as the ship is taking off and making ready to leave atmo)

“Catie, will you please join us as we escort Miss Fairchild’s party through the ship? JC.. check with Grace and see if she might find a simple deck layout for Mr. Liang.“ Jon started moving through the cargo bay, “If you’ll follow me I’ll show you the ship.”

Catie takes position beside Lilianna, opposite Asante, during the tour. She doesn't stand so close as to be invasive, but she is there similar to a waitress guiding a diner to their table.

She subtly gave reassuring nods to Jon as he gave the tour, recognizing by his body language that he was uncomfortable with it. When they reached the stairway to the guest quarters, Catie spoke up as well.

"I've personally seen to the preparations of your rooms." Catie added,. "If there are any amendments you may like in regards to them, please let me know and I will find out if they can be accommodated."

"Oh, thank you, that is most kind." She says but seems very distracted and somewhat lost. She keeps looking to her bodyguard for direction.

Down in the infirmary, Stephanie was flipping channels on the cortex entertainment channels. She found what she thought she was looking for as she did. She had to tell Jon. She realized as she did that she had been foolish in her fears with Jon and her doubts and she really needed to apologize for how she had behaved before. So with sense of need and urgency, she left to find the captain.

Jon started the tour with the cargo area and Medical Bay. Taking the lift to the middle deck. As they emerged he point left down the hall“ The galley is at the end of this gangway. The crew quarters are also here. Mr. Simon and Mr. Simon, your room will be up there by the galley.” Turning slightly,” The escape pod are there, " pointing up across the hall, "and Engineering is down this other way. Your quarters Miss Fairchild are up this private stairs to our two guest rooms…… Mr. Liang, we have partitioned the one room so you can stay there with Miss Fairchild to ensure her safety. Miss Chang you will be in the room next to Miss Fairchild.” Jon really wasn’t use to this tour guide routine but it had to be done. He knew the Princess would naturally expect the Captain of the ship to personally attend to her for a while and…well she did give them STEAKS.” Standing in the hall he gestured up, “ The upper deck is restricted to crew only… for your safety,…as is Engineering.”

The vibrations of the ship leaving Atmo and entering the Black stop and the gentle humm of the engines signal that Tess has the ship under way.

The Simons, still looking rather glum, take off to their quarters as soon as they are shown to them. Other than Rick asking when breakfast would be, they seem happy to be heading to bed.

Seth seemed very satisfied with the arrangement, "This works well. thank you Captain. If you could have the layout plans brought me as soon as possible, I'd appreciate it."

Lilianna however is not thrilled with the accommodations and the shared room with a barrier between. She doesn't say anything but her face is a mask of rage, sadness and loathing. She pleads fatigue and asks to be left in her room. Before you leave though, she grasps Catie but the hands and says, "Thank you for your kindness. I appreciate all the help you have given me in this matter."

As Asante heads to her room, she asks Jon formally, "Captain, I have a few matters that I must speak to you of some urgency. Could I have a few moments with you alone?" she asks as she enters her quarters and tossed her bag upon the bed.

Subject: Into the pool

As you discuss the possibility of your visions being a sign or a play thing of the wizard who holds you here, Wembley attempts to pet Ivan as the humidity puffs him to new dimension. He only gets a couple of strokes in before the feline jumps up and away - hissing wildly. Then Ivan regains his composure and says, "Whoa dude - major uncool. I don't run that way - not there is anything wrong with it but still. Don't be getting frisky with me." Ivan looks around, "I need to get out of here before I go up another shirt size."

Alôndas puts the tip of his staff through the blue curtain. It parts to the touch of the staff, much as one would expect water falling in a sheet. He then touches it gently, and it parts again. The sensation is very faint, almost like a gossamer curtain or a spider web.

Beyond the curtain he feels the coolness of the next room, or at least, cooler than the very hot room you are in. There is a large sunken pool beyond the curtain with what appears to be clear clean water within. Benches and long chairs are set around the pool and there are many piles of towels on the benches themselves. There are there more rooms with energy curtains blocking the entranceway of each, located across and perpendicular to the one you are in.

Otherwise, there is no sign of beings within the pool area. Crow does a examination of the room you are in but there are no secret doors or surprise within the sauna. One can only assume the portals of this area must be beyond the curtains.
