Re: The Red Helm

Anbu's thoughts coiled for a second as they disembarked. Strange no one had mentioned yet about the missing creds, even these Mandalorians would have noticed. Must not have played strongly in their minds, maybe it just didn't matter. Doc having solved the data card. A good nights sleep was all the stood in their way before the mission began. Maybe a nice room and board would come of this. Dres lead the pack in sight only, Warren giving directions from behind his left shoulder. "Doc and Motoko are sharing a room, I have mine next to that with Brassk and Dres on the side of either room."
Anbu spread his wings lightly. Yawning his only response. Space travel was always tiring.
"Tomorrow, we'll need to wake at five early."
Piling into the turbolift, Dres waited for the next one.

Re: The Red Helm

Goran's big frame sauntered in their direction dressed in his dull gray armor, a disruptor rifle held loosely in one arm, as if the large man needed such a potent weapon. The helmet tilted slightly, "Hail,hail...the gang's all here."

'Ugly' Jim was obviously looking over the Barabels, as he shifted his weapon into a more usable position. The older Mandalorian didn't take any chances, and he would just as soon disintegrate a sentient as he would buy them a drink. Just because he was a good natured Mando didn't mean he was a stupid one.

He nodded toward Anbu and his group, "See you picked up some extra cargo..." One could practically sense the toothy grin behind the black visor. "Turning a cred,while turning a cred.....How positively mercenary of you."

"Jari'eyc" kept his firearm loosely directed at the security team, while trying to look only mildly threatening. He didn't want any of the lizards to get happy trigger fingers, but he'd "ash" the first one that looked at the group funny....And the short red head with the look that could kill, well...he just preferred she kept her distance.

"So what's this project?" he asked Saviin,who was obviously guarding a newcomer. "This must be your spacebait, can't be too bad. 'Cos yer still here." He grinned behind his helm, but his pale blue eyes remained on the security team and their leader.

Re: The Red Helm

"I'd shake your hand, but I don't think the lady over here," Earon jerked her thumb in Saviin's direction, "would like that too much. I just wanna know how I can help. I snuck on board, so spacebait would at  least let me stretch my legs." Earon smiled lightheartedly; breathing fresh air had put her in better moods, even if her life was riding on this group's mood. Somebody had to joke to keep the stress of them; even though Earon knew she wasn't welcome, she was willing to try.

Re: The Red Helm

Kyr'am strode into bay three as Nora and company disembarked from their vessels.  Walking up next to Vanga, the barabel turned to him and hissed, "You expected them?"   
     "Most of them, I didn't think she'd be bringing this many,"  Kyr'am walked up to Nora and asked, "What happened, I thought you were bringing less than this."


Meanwhile, on the bridge, Orienda was still dealing with the now discovered contact.  "Negative Fury, we do not need weapons.  You will proceed with our escorts to docking bay 3, where we will refuel your ship.  If you deviate from your course or attempt to evade, the escorting ships will destroy you, do you understand?"

Re: The Red Helm

Uriel sighed. "Yeah yeah, following you in." he shut his COM switch. "These guys don't screw around R9." he said to the droid. "Bad for business, but I'll see what I can do. Gods sake why am I talking to a droid?"
R9 beebed annoyingly.
Uriel made a psh noise. "I'd like to see them try R9. I have over 400 sorties under my belt, If theres a better pilot out here, I wanna meet em. Noone can touch the Fury."
Uriel throttled up his ship and followed the escorts towards Docking Bay Three, making sure to keep his thumb well away from the trigger of the chain guns tucked away under the rear x foils.

Re: The Red Helm

Kyr'am walked up to Nora and asked, "What happened, I thought you were bringing less than this."

The huntress made a face behind the visor of her helm.  “If you will recall.....I cleared their passage with both you and the Katarn before we left port.  And that,” she made a gesture towards Earon, “.....is an attempted stow-away.  We will deal with her ourselves...”

Saviin leaned slightly towards Goran, “I hear you’re a good babysitter.  So here....” she snorted, shoving Earon towards the man, “I don’t have the patience....”

Re: The Red Helm

"Fury you are cleared to land. Maintain current heading and velocity." A voice said into Uriel's com.
"Copy." Uriel replied watching the hanger doors open soundlessly. "Acquiring approach vector."
Uriel guided the Fury into the yawning, brightly lit hanger bay. There were already quite a few ships inside, but finding a spot for an X-Wing proved easy enough.
He unfastened his shoulder restraints when he felt the skids touch down and the tug of artificial gravity weighed on his chest. Calmly he reached behind his seat and picked up his custom E-11. He wasn't going to take any chances with these Mandos.
Uriel popped open the canopy and leaped to the ground. "R9." he said turning to the droid perched on top. "Lock her down, I'll supervise the refueling myself." R9 beeped in response.
There were several figures all in the hanger, most wearing visored helmets that covered their faces.
"Hmm." Uriel thought to himself. "Menacing, but I'm not impressed." he took a couple steps towards the group. "Hey," he said outloud this time. "Who's in charge of this heap?"

"I'm just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe"

Re: The Red Helm

"Jari'eyc Jim Goran..." the big man introduced himself to  Earon. "...That's Ugly Jim to you non-mando types." Saviin shoved the girl toward the older man stating he was the lucky barve to watch her.

A big gloved hand rested on the stowaway's shoulder, and Goran's dull colored helmet dipped down close. "Now what possessed you to sneak onto a Mando ship?"

"Gutsy, but foolish." He straightened back up, "Stick with me, kiddo. Yah didn't sneak on the Hammer, so we're cool like Hoth." The gray toned warrior leaned back slightly, "But if you try to sabotage this job,or pull any osik...I will shoot you first, and ask questions later. Clear?"

Re: The Red Helm

Atinvod, take all the time you need visiting with your cousin.  That's far more important than this game.

Maltese, post whenever you wish.  No rush.

I just thought maybe everyone had lost interest.  I'm glad to see that's not the case.  big_smile

Carry on!

Re: The Red Helm

OOC:  Just a reminder to everyone about where the characters all are:

Nora's ship and Goran's ship have both just arrived at the Katarn and docked there.  Nora's party are all still standing before the Barabel security team in the docking bay, awaiting a response. 

The Katarn is a large, former slave ship still in space.  It is not a planet.  So for any characters who just disembarked from the Nineveh (Nora's ship) you are now just on a much larger ship which is still in space.  The ship is run by former slaves, who are going to assist in the mission to some extent by helping Nora's team reach Brozyna, the planet where the helmet is being kept in a security vault. 

Other characters are arriving via their own ships, also planning to dock on the Katarn. 

The goal here is, with the help of the Katarn's crew, to reach Brozyna (the planet) where the helmet is being kept in a high security vault owned by a rich human male. 

The helm is not in a house, not in a Hutt palace, nor any other location.  And we are are all still in space...aboard the Katarn or our own personal vessels.

Re: The Red Helm

How could we possibly be on planet side when recent posts clearly state that people have just arrived on the Katarn?? 

There are new characters on board (and arriving at) the Katarn, waiting to be introduced.
Nora still has to meet with Kyr'am to further discuss the mission details.
Red Zee has to make her intro and establish herself as a character.
There are entire pieces of the plot that need to be worked out. 

They cannot go from stepping off their ship and onto the Katarn, not even speaking to anyone, to suddenly being on a planet....in the middle of a Hutt palace no less!  I have no idea where the Hutt palace came from.  The helm is not there and there are no Hutts running Brozyna.  The description of Brozyna was given much earlier in the game, Nora briefly describes the planet's economy, social set up, and the like.

Please try to follow the story.  Do not make major plot changes and the like.  If you want to be in a game where you can take complete control of the story and turn it to your liking, then perhaps you should join a story that accomodates that type of playing. 

Also, I am going to wait until the end of this week and then if there is no response I will be closing this game.  I might start another one, I haven't decided yet.  I have quite a few elsewhere that I am busy with.  But I'd hate to give up on BFFC yet as I can see there are a number of active players here.

Re: The Red Helm

(You'd be surprised what mistakes some people can make when they aren't paying enough attention. I forgot where we were. I would also like to defend my case in that no one corrected me when I did that earlier, notably I mentioned being planetside had to change that today. Not a big issue. Thankfully I'm not after the helm.)

Re: The Red Helm

The story has been stalled since around March 19th.  If anyone is still interested in playing, post a message.   Otherwise I will close this game end of this week.

Re: The Red Helm

Sure, I posted something to continue earlier. Just, there are no responding comments, yet.

Re: The Red Helm

This game is closed. 
I have other games at different sites and don't have time to press this one anymore...
