Traveller: The Search For More Money (IC)

Post by Calvin on Wed Apr 20, 2011 1:06 pm

TRAVELLER
The Search For More Money

Limitless void. It's cold damp, and crowded. There must be almost fifty lost souls aboard. Locked in seperate cells there are around six of you in one of them. You can't be sure how long you've spent in these terrible conditions. You can only guess that it has been a few months as your sense of time eludes you. Now with no way to track time, no day or night, and no viewports to determine where you are, you six intrepid travellers are truely lost.

You have barely caught a handful of half glimpsed shadows you can only assume to be your alien captors. What is there nature? Or unnature? Are they force or are they space? What sinister plot could they have planned for you? Where are you being taken? These questions have been incessently clawing at your mind since your abduction.

You look around the cell at eachother. All from different worlds and with different histories, and yet here you are. Fate has seemed to have brought you all together to rot in this dank and grimy cell.

OOC:
First of you do not have your equipment on you. As far as you can remember, all your personal affects save for the clothes on your back were seized when you were abducted. (Heinrich's ship was last docked on Volanus.) Considering you spent over a month with each other with nothing more than manual slave labour and sitting, its assumed that you all know eachother fairly well and have learned eachother's past, and also whatever miscelanious things available on your character sheets and what-not.

This portion of the campaign I like to call Slaveship
I'm hoping you have all read both the rules and at least understand the few facts about this Generic Sci-Fi Universe. If you haven't I highly recomend you do that before you post anything.

If you want you can also subscribe to this thread. I think that sends you an email everytime something happens. That way you can keep updated when someone posts something. But if you plan on checking it often it isn't really neccessary.

Now I suggest you create a bit of an introduction for your character, what do they see when they are looking around the cell at you? Plus perhaps you can explain how your character was abducted. I'll give you the specifics on how this abduction could have taken place in the OOC thread, so look there before getting it out. Also you are free to make any actions you want, just keep in mind you are stuck in a cell. You can look around the cell or look through the cell door (they are like the classic iron bars) in the cooridor if you want. You can feel free to try to interact with the other player characters. Use dialogue express thoughts etc.

Remember, take your time to come up with everything you want for your character.

Heinrich get's up and walks towards the door. Stroking his scaly chin he smells the air with his tongue, still holding himself like a noble. The desperate conditions haven't reached his eyes yet which still hold an adventurous gleam. He analyses the door again looking for any kind of weakness, his tail swaying back an forth as he thinks.

The smell of stale sweat enter Heinrich's thin nostrils. The cell door appears as sturdy as the many other times in which he ponderously examined it. The lock has a basic mechanical keyhole on the other side. Unlocking it would be easy had you the right key or a lock pick set. Sadly neither are available. The iron bars are very strong despite signs of early rusting. It would take a brute to defeat the cell's stubborn structure.

Kruza looks throught the bars of his cell, just waking up his eyes were blurry. He could make out a being eyeballing the door across from his cell, sitting up he shouts out "its no use, i used to own one of these ships, the only way to open it is to get a key" and then Kruza whispered "i say we try bribing a guard". Looking over he sees the faint image of a frail guard, he looks like he could use some more money....

As Kruza's eyes open more and focus on the nearby guard a feeling of dread begins to wash over him. For the once blurred image of a frail guard is now a short gnarled shape. Black fur, with patches of leathery skin. It's head quickly snaps toward him as if it knew Kruza was watching. The young Avist jumps from the sudden movement. Its big black eyes fixate on him. A greasy snout with a hidious scar running down it sniffs the stale air. Big ears twitch at the slightest sound. It can hear everything you say and Kruza realizes this. It holds a simple halberd in one hand. It looks away again and shifts its weight from clawed foot to clawed foot. As it stretches out one arm you all notice the tattered leathery black wings. Hardly wings at all, but thin long webbed fingers.

It must be this horrible parody of nature, and possibly its brethren, that managed to capture you and hold you in this most gloomy slaveship.

OOC:
Just remember Taegen, make sure you only say what your character will do, not what he experience when he performs such an action (like what Kruza sees in your case) Some times it works out fine when its obvious like: "Kruza rolls some dice and sees them clatter on the cold floor." Just make sure you don't add "And sees that the dice come out all sixes!" Because that is my job.

Other than that great first posts guys. I may wait a while and let other people post sometihng before really advancing the story.
Oh, also I'm just realizing that I am switching from third person to second person. I figure that when I'm describing something to the group as a whole I will just say "you" or maybe "the brave travellers" or something slick like that. I will then address character names when describing things to that character specifically. I think it will still sound okay even though its usually frowned upon to switch articles (or whatever they're called) like that.

Fenris eyes up the lock on the cage door, and the floors around his cell. On the floor he finds nothing but the crumbs from several stale and meager meals.

Correction:
Calvin: Did you read the above posts Colton? I already had to tell Taegen that you can only describe things that your character is going to try to do. You should have ended it where your character looks around the floor because you don't know what I (as theGM) put in this cell. You (as a player) don't have the power to create things.

But of course, this is the first post so its excusable. Really, its not a big deal, I just had to edit it. Just know for next time. EVERYONE know for next time.

Rey stands in the cell and Examines the hinges on the cell door, letting his gaze drift across the cell once more he thinks to him self how am going to get out of this mess... refusing to give up he continues to survey the cell wishing he had his trusty Bayonet with him.

Kruza gets the feeling of dread that seems to be a growing feeling in this cell with 5 others, we may not make it out alive, who knows whats waiting at the end of this flight for us. Kruza decides he needs to at least try to do something, he moves closer to the bars and attempts to make verbal contact with the scruffy looking alien..."hey! our toilet stopped working, unless you want me shittin on the floor, and stinkin the place up, i say we get someone in here to fix it!"....

Lucas searches longingly for open windows and unlocked doors leading to the wide open fields of his homeworld. His daydreaming is cut short by the all the action happening with Kruza and the alien captor.

The strange bat-like creature moves closer toward the cell and squeals at Kruza, clearly annoyed it his failed attempts to communicate with it. Saliva slicks out of the alien's mouth and onto the floor as it squeals and yaps in its own horrid language, varying its pitch as it does so. Other than appearing displeased, it makes no other actions toward you.

OOC:
I'm excited about how the relationship with Kruza and Fiona will pan out. They will certainly make this game very interesting. They are both Avist and so will have that inate comradery that people of the same race will have when in foreign places, but their professions are almost opposite. Kruza was a pirate, and I assume he plauged the Avista XVI star system's trade routes and such, while Fio was part of the Avist military which obviously is all about protecting its people.

Just waiting for wizfriz to post something introductory as even I have no idea who her character is. Then I will really advance this story. But in the mean time keep on doind what you guys are doing. Its pretty good so far!

Fenris remembers the times when he was caught stealing, he got simple warnings, and sometimes a little more... but he never got put into a prison. He likes Kruza's idea but without being able to speak the gaurds language its hopeless. just if i knew how to speak like a freak.... is that what they teach you in school? maybe i should'nt have dropped out...

Mirtre finially awakens, much later than some of his cell mates. He does not find gloom and darkness disturbing to him as it is quite similar to his home world, Planet X. As he looks around and sees the outlines of other beings he sinks into dissapointment. None of them have a fermilar centipedeic form, or pinchers. After all Vecta are extreamly pridefull, and there culture is one of the most ethnocentristic out there. He sighs and thinks to himself,
What can I expect, cells are made to hold the scum of the universe, Vecta have no place in them. I will once again be the only compentent being.
Feeling around he tapps his multipble legs on the hard floor in a rhythmic pattern ,"tap...tap....tap..tap..tap...tap...tap.tap..tap..tap...tapp.....tap..." To show his superioridy he rises off from the ground and changes his height from 3' feet to over 7'
As the rest of the party realise just what Mirtre is they lightly shudder in fear.

The whole party is a little weary of the bug in the room. As Mirtre rears up he hits his head on the low cieling. The resulting hollow thud reminds him even he is constrained to sinister will of the slaveship's cruel masters. Everyone has only just been getting used to the imposing nature of Mirtre even after several weeks together in the slaveship.

OOC:
Mirtre will certainly be an interesting character. Just remember that he has been in this predicament as long as the others. Give or take a week or two.

Lucas feels around. Just like Heinrich and everyone else over course of your captivity, no bars are loose and show only a slight amount of rusting.

Ringing up through the corridor you hear chattering, yaps and squeals. Bat-Beings must be getting agitated. The one facing Kruza quickly bounds away toward the other Bat-Beings. It turns a corner out of sight, but the chattering does not stop.

Mitre arches down, feeling quite displeased with himself. Letting lower species see him fumble.

When watching the bat like creatures chatter away he started working to decipher there language. He continues fiddling with a tablet sized piece of technology in his legs. Mitre personally designed this device for himself. When dealing with traders and clients they used many languages. They were far too primitive and worthless for him to bother to learn and the Voltar language was beyond them being constructed mainly of hisses, clicks, and pops; and besides that they would never be worthy enough to speak it. It allows for dual language translation.

The sound of the bat like aliens speech pushes Kruza's patiens, he cant stand it, Kruza kicks the bars with utter frustration, hoping it will budge but knowing there is no chance, f*&*ing bat wingers screech at me, will ya. ill give ya something to scream about! he shoots a quick glare at Fio, seeing here judgemental brow, "well i haven't heard any bright ideas yet" pacing back and forth he notices Mitre messing with a little device.......

Mirtre strains to figure out what the aliens are saying but the translato-box attatched to him just can't find any matching languages. The device can only translate several common languages. The Bat-Being's form of communication must truely alien. It is just chittery noise to all of you.

The iron bars ring out from Kruza's frustrated kick.

"Well as clever as your threats of defication were, they dont seem like such a success. Unless ofcourse they are discussing whats in the best interest of the cozy accomodations theyve given us. I think some patience will get us a little further than cussing at these... things!

A low pitch warning klaxon begins to blare, red lightts bathe the corridor outside the cell in a blinking ruby red. Already you can hear shouts and talking eminating from other cells in the area. Clearly, the other slaves are just as confused as you.

A sharp shriek from one of the out of sight aliens is quickly followed by a faint and hollow blast which shakes the entire ship slightly.
