Serenity RPG

Week 55 - Zeal
Come and see the gun that ended the war!

On Blackwood, the Capt, with Gale, Hyacinth, Grace and Trevor in tow, headed across the “tarmac” (a gravel field in a pasture) to the “control center” (a converted barn), and noticed along the way a number of small Alliance vessels on the ground, Alliance officers wandering around, and a few Alliance outbuildings that were not here the last time she visited. Mikki hitched up her duffel bag and went to find her parents, Hart headed into town, and Carl and Ivy hopped onto a mule, headed out to the edge of town, and Carl gave Ivy lessons in driving, out in an area where there was very few things to crash into.

Week 54 - Surreptitiously
I've seen the others sneak. How hard could it be?

Early the next St Albans morning, the doorbell rang. Gale wandered down to answer it, the rest of the crew being asleep, and found a dapper young scoundrel holding white lilies. He asked to see the Capt, but Gale told him she was asleep and to come back later. At the same time, Valis awoke the Capt, informing her of what was happening. The gentleman gave the flowers to Gale, along with a card holding a mailbox address and asked him to give them to the Capt and let him know when she was available as he wanted to take her out to dinner. He then turned on his heel and headed into town. Gale “snuck” after him, and the Capt casually stepped out after Gale to see where the parade was leading.

Week 53 - Business
Suddenly Shylock!

Following the trail of the pirates through space, they reached the end of the middle trail and found it to be a dead end, with the debris of a cry baby at the end, so they turned around to the fork and chose another path. Traveling down this new trail, Ivy sensed several fast-moving vessels inbound just before the sensors picked them up. They ordered the Hephaestus to stand-to and be prepared to be boarded, locking weapons on the ship the moment they got in range. Shortly after, a Corvette identified itself as the CiW Excalibur and that the Hephaestus was to be bound by law for piracy.

Week 52 - Booby Trap
I don't understand, the crazy SoB just keeps coming!

On Persephone, with Carl and Mikki out doing Trainwreck fun and Hart at the Southtown Abbey, the rest of the crew stayed close to the ship. Ivy moved through the motions of doing her normal chores mechanically, significantly more subdued than normal and with no enthusiasm. The Capt tried talking to her but she seemed irritable and rebellious.

Week 51 - Reunions
I can't believe I missed another birthday.

Still on Beylix, the Hephaestus with holes in her and cables pouring out of her, the engineers worked on building out the jammers and installing the new sensors and comms. The Capt spent her time with Simmons, helping him clean up his business while reports rolled in that the war was over, making sure Simmons Salvage was stable and involved in the local government as it settled out after the war.

Week 50 - Interrogation
Monsters are as Monsters do.

The crew decided to head back into CiW space, depressed at the loss of both Ivy and Mitchell, for different reasons obviouusly. As the CiW fleet pulled out for Salisbury and the Hephaestus turned towards the Core, the ship was hailed by a CiW cruiser that was further coreward (tight beam from that direction). Trevor answered the hail and it was a CiW Lt Cmdr named Dennis who asked to speak to the Capt of the Hephaestus. The Capt answered and Lt Cmdr Dennis explained that Mitchell would like to speak to her and agreed to set up a conference, as long as the Capt agreed to the conditions. The crew could have anyone present they wished, the questions would be asked one at a time, quid pro quo, and the first one to lie would be the end of the conference. The Capt agreed and the conference was set up for later that day.

Week 49 - Rescue?
What do you mean Mitchell escaped again?!

Hiding on Salisbury in Carl’s Mom’s house, the plan to take out Mitchell became even more complicated by the required rescue of Carl’s Mom as well as Hart, Mikki, and Ivy, all of whom had all been captured by Blue Sun as well as finding out the ship was booby trapped. Carl acquired horses and the crew rode out to the ship to remove the traps and get it ready. Trevor carefully removed the traps (there were many) while Vermin attempted to undo the sabotage the Blue Sun Operatives had done, managing to jury-rig a compression coil replacement that would survive the getaway.

Week 48 - Internment
Hart, Mikki, and Ivy got captured. I bet no one saw that coming.

The crew sat around Carl’s Mom’s breakfast table, planning, but after awhile it became clear that, without some reconnaissance, no real planning could be done. Carl, Vermin, and Trevor headed out into town to look around and get a clear idea of what they were facing. They wandered to the Blue Sun primary compound just outside of town and walked through the adjacent streets, looking it over.

Week 47 - Infiltration
We're not flying. We're falling, with style.

In the black, out on the rim, passing through the Zeus system, Ivy sensed a large number of people on the gas giant. She said as much to Gale, who scoffed that it wasn’t possible, and after some discussion it was determined that it must be a very large fleet hiding in the sensor shadow of the massive giant. Vermin asked Ivy questions and jotted down notes about it but they did not change course or react to it, not wanting to draw undue attention to themselves.

Week 46 - Disguised
What do you mean the lights are off again? I just FIXED that thing!

The Hephaestus sat in the giant hanger bay of the CiW battleship Intimidator and the crew recovered from a party of epic proportions. Claire politely escorted hungover crewmen who’d fallen asleep in the lounge and saw to the cleanup when the doorbell chimed. She walked to the front of the ship and found Adm Barris standing there, requesting to speak to the Capt. Claire smiled and told him to come back in a few hours as the Capt was “indisposed” and unlikely to be “disposed” until at least noon. He frowned, nodded and walked away.
