  5. atsumari: <start sim> Mira was in the lounge after having herself some rather lewd dreams. What was with her and why… like they just escaped from some enemy and yet she was on about being her usual messed up self. She stared into the cup she was drinking a sweet coffee out of that wasn’t native to earth. “I really need to not quit my day job… at this rate I’ll be writing stories about myself…” she made fun of herself. [13:02] Ivan&Ally: Soft footsteps as Chan's personal droid explored the ship, approaching the lounge. Chan herself was going through the data and experiences they had on their planetside adventure together with her A.I: Serena. Sometimes Mira could hear the bot speak as Chan's neural interface had an active link with the droid and thus anything she said, the bot repeated(edited) [13:06] atsumari: As the droid arrived at the door Mira looked over at the obvious robot. She recalled the last time a random droid was on the ship from logs; it ended up exploding. “Uhh… Are you going to self destruct like the other one?” Mira asked temporarily drawn away from her inner battle of keeping her composure in the face of lewd thoughts. This was a welcome distraction even if the robot could potentially explode. [13:07] atsumari: (it was a long time ago some guy came as a repair droid and blew up) [13:11] Ivan&Ally: The droid briefly stopped speaking what appeared to be random sentences, turning its attention to Mira "Oh, not at all ma'am, this is Chan's personal droid." Some static as Chan took direct control Chan: "My apologies, my droid was exploring the ship while Serena and I were going through the debrief of our activities on the planet, this thing doesn't have a self destruct function I assure you" [13:15] atsumari: Mira blinked staring at the bot. “Oh you’re the little robot that we met down on the planet… So either your master is like me and cage bound or just highly anti-social… also like me… Hum… so what is your objective anyway… I mean sure you are following us… but to what end?” Mira asked. [13:18] Ivan&Ally: Chan: "Neither actua-" Serena: Liar Chan: "Well a bit- Serena: Alot Chan: "-of the latter. I actually enlisted in the Trinity armed forces after the evacuation of Earth, but as you can tell, after the evacuation of Earth... So I was sort of on my own trying to locate friendly forces, then I got sidetracked with alien remnants and technology. We picked up a distress signal and the rest is history"(edited) [13:22] atsumari: “Damn… you are a long way out… almost as unfortunate as me… but from the sounds of it at least you have an AI to keep you company… Before I met these guys I was on my own and my poor little dinky ass ship was adrift… no more fuel reserves… my dumb ass self would’ve been stuck unknowingly in space monsters land and I totally would have become a tentacle monsters tasty treat.” Mira smirked then chuckled at her own circumstances that will seeming unfortunate were actually very fortunate for her because with her illness being treated she actually was able to no longer be trapped in a bubble. [13:27] Ivan&Ally: Chan: Then we have somewhat similar pasts, though your story sounds a lot more grim and reminds me of someone else's past who was in my former unit. Minus the monsters [13:31] atsumari: “ I mean I’m over it… If you asked me a couple weeks ago how I felt I would’ve told you that I still am not over what happened but… i’ve found some really good friends here and… possibly even a replacement for the one I lost… Uh… anyway I don’t remember if I introduced myself down on the planet… I’m Mira Lowin. I command the tiny survey ship that’s in the hanger of the Lavie. Right now while here I am doing maps for them and helping operate some of their stellar cartography equipment… since I guess they don’t have a space mapping person on the crew… kind of seems strange for a large ship like this to have those type of facilities but have nobody to operate them… whatever though it means pay for me and a place to stay.” She said with a smile. [13:37] Ivan&Ally: Chan: Chantelle Singularum, former Wolverine 2nd Lieutenant and current commander of my personal vessel: the UKG Judgemaker, Serena came up with the name. Now that you say it, it does feel like the ship is operating with less than a skeleton crew. Like it feels that the crew had the wrong assignment and got a large ship instead of something like a corvette [13:40] atsumari: “ my understanding is that their some sort of special operations unit. So I guess a bunch of their members end up doing multiple jobs because they are special forces… That also means that they don’t have a lot of bodies though which kind of sucks… good people none the less though. Between The Federation Senate trying to kill them and they’re being repatriated under the council; you know TUC the corporate space UN… heh… At least they’ve got people bending over backwards to help them when politicians that only want to control the populace try and kill them…” Mira shrugged(edited) [13:44] Ivan&Ally: Chan: Sigh No matter where I go, politicians remain the same. I hate politics, its bureaucracy and corruption... Though I must admit that without some political arm twisting by my father I wouldn't be a Wolverine or have this ship. Just your average civilian worker or crewmate, maybe a military police officer. But still one of the lows humanity can offer. I don't know if our people are even comparable to the humans that founded my home nation, so much time has passed and things have changed alot over the years.(edited) [13:50] atsumari: “ yeah I mean with earth being attacked by the bugs it really… I mean the galaxy was screwed up in half but with the federation being dominated by the bugs any real attempt they had at stabilizing the galaxy totally went down the shitter… and opened up opportunity for even more corruption then was there before. All in all regular people get shit on and the fat cats get money… though I’m not sure what they’ll do with that money when they’re dead. So are you just planning to like stick around this ship like I’m doing… or do you have something else in mind?” She asked trying to understand Chan’s goals. [13:55] Ivan&Ally: Chan: We have all payed the price with the evacuation of Earth, abandoned by those who were supposed to keep us safe. I left family and a bright future in the Wolverines behind and came to Earth just a few years before the evacuation. A young adult, still trying to figure out who I want to be and what I want to do, wanting to reinvent myself on Earth, unfortunately recent events have forced my hand and I enlisted into the force, I guess the military is my calling. A long-standing family history. [13:58] atsumari: “I just ended up here by circumstance… Sounds like you have bigger goals than I do… I’m just a girl trying to survive in a hostile landscape while still having as much fun as I can in the process. Uh… hopefully…” [14:00] Ivan&Ally: Chan: Having some fun and positive vibes are important in situations like these, keeps up morale and hope. Making our situation just a little more bearable. I've been trying to contact my former unit, fortunately bonds aren't forgotten do quickly. [14:03] atsumari: “I see… you should probably talk to the general about that one because yeah I don’t really have any decision making authority here. I’m pretty sure that these guys would be willing to help you with that though. Thornton seems level headed from my encounters with him.” [14:05] Ivan&Ally: Serena: She's not a social person Chan: Authority or not, doesn't mean we can't enjoy a nice chat. I care little about one's status, unless it's a senior rank but then you have to. Serena: That's not what happened when you insulted the ministry. Chan: Shush, that's politicians [14:09] atsumari: “I’ll send him a message then to set up a meeting with you.” Mira suggested. “Social or not you are doing a pretty good job conversing with the lewdie of this place; if you can chat with me without wanting to remove your soul from your body you’ll survive Aidan Thornton.” She smirked. [14:11] Ivan&Ally: Blank stare before blinking Chan: Um, right. I'll umm, be looking for him. Have a nice day? [14:13] atsumari: Mira nods. “Cool I’ll message him… don’t be a stranger… I’m always just drawing lewdness or writing nothing in particular while wandering around so you’ll find me again as long as the space tentacles don’t get you.” Mira returns to her coffee bidding Chan’s bot farewell. [14:14] atsumari: <end sim>
  6. The New Universes Project: Eine Neue Reise Beginnt Season 4 - Episode 2: New Friends; New Ideas January 15th 4567 Evening Narrated by Jake Noris The Trinity Forces left Rema with a successful mission and having gained new allies while on this journey into the harshness that is the area coined the New Sector. Now venturing with their new friends through space the team and its new allies endeavor to further learn about themselves, their surroundings and the new properties which were about to manifest themselves within the group which would change the game of future battles for the better.
  7. 16:19] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: <START SIM> The ship had gathered together supplies and was fixed enough to be able to leave orbit and travel around now; also by this time a couple resupply ships from Orteria had arrived and were beginning to outfit Ari's new base. [16:20] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: There was officially an embassy on Rema now as well. [16:21] Not a stupid Siri user.: Aidan was in his office. "Thornton to Bridge. Time to move on. Set a course for the following coordinates." He keyed in a spatial numbers and sent them to the conn and command chair.(edited) [16:24] Tory Trace: Tory had helped set up the security and power system in the base. With the Lavie's scheduled departure, he made one last remote check of the system from engineering. It gave a satisfying check and he cut the remote control. It was now in the embassy's care now [16:25] Not a stupid Siri user.: While NIklas had downloaded the information that Kel had given freely, his mind still raced around the possibilities. Ayasha keyed the door to Owain's quarters. "Sir, I need to do a quick scan. " [16:28] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: Mira was on the bridge; they were limited on pilots and so she was monitoring two stations. Flying a starship wasn't exactly her specialty but she was a qualified pilot none the less. Something she had to be qualified to do being in command of her own ship. "Understood command. Setting a course." She replied to Aidan as she set the course without pressing anything. Having a connection to the ships computer always made things easier and she was using it more frequently now. [16:28] Tuncecine: "You don't need to call me sir, I'm not in the military. did you not scan me enough while I was unconscious?" owain said while he could exactly stop Ayasha from scanning him he would definitely preferred just being able to relax. [16:29] Rockyeahh: (I may have fallene asleep. Covid makes ya tired. It seems.) [16:29] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (all illness makes you tired) [16:31] Not a stupid Siri user.: Ayasha smiled in a practiced but genuine manner. "Things change over time. Keeping up with those changes to make sure there are no surprises. Besides, anyone that isn't my dad and male is a Sir to me or do you prefer Doctor?" She set down the case, opening the tricorder and scanner. "Any new symptoms? Can you describe your pain level?" [16:32] Not a stupid Siri user.: NIk was co-monitoring the changes to the shield and any variances to contact with the shield. No one wanted a repeat of the first debacle. [16:33] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: Kel and his comrades were in engineering. Having miniature humanoid dinos roaming about engineering seemed to scare some of the engineers but they were tactful enough to get their work done and be effective yet efficient. [16:34] Tuncecine: "No new symptoms, just a lingering three from the explosion, And Just Owain is fine I didn't get a doctorate to belittle someone with it." [16:35] Not a stupid Siri user.: Ayasha chuckled. "With the exception of the enlisted Doctorates are fairly common onboard. Working on mine in the little off time I have." [16:35] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (im just imagining a raptor roaming through engineering lol) [16:36] Tory Trace: [quite another way of the term 'bull in a china shop' ] [16:37] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: One of the dinos adjusts a nob with his mouth. There was much confusion but the assistant engineer at the station said nothing. [16:38] Tuncecine: "I have heard more then a few with doctorates demand they be called doctor, maybe I just learned what I learned cause I had a passion for it." [16:38] Tory Trace: Tory looked over at the new dino crew member. "Something wrong?" he asked the dino. It was quite a sight to see of these new humanoid dinos roaming around engineering [16:40] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: The creature hissed in a way that the crew had come to understand meant all was well. only a minor adjustment was required. It was a form of a hiss and nonverbal body language that the ones who couldn't speak used to communicate with the others. [16:42] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (just think if anyone board this ship they wont be expecting a raptor with human legs that can tear them apart and eat their head lul) [16:43] Not a stupid Siri user.: (Nik might build one or two as sentries ) [16:44] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (these guys might be useful as security once the ship is fixed lol) [16:44] Tory Trace: Like the crew, he is still trying to learn the gestures and language sounds they make but he nodded as he understood. "okay. Let me know if there is anything I can help. I'm in charge of engineering," he said to the dino. He couldn't help but have a nervous eye on them given how different still they were. [16:46] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: One of the different ones had finished fixing an entire level himself and replaced the panel in the wall he had actually tore off to get inside. He placed the panel back on its old home then used a secretion he made that acted as glue to hold it back in place. once it hardened it was like the substance was never even there. [16:47] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (we dont need equipment; were just going to use our spit to put things back together) [16:47] Not a stupid Siri user.: (You assume it's spit ) [16:47] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (just imagine how unfun that would be for any intude; oh you tripped; you've been glued to the floor or yourself; good luck getting up)(edited) [16:48] Tory Trace: [you know, when you typed secretion, i imagined he peed on it to glue it] [16:49] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (could be; we dont know these thigns biology; we assume thats thier mouth) [16:49] Not a stupid Siri user.: "Sadly you are correct. Some surgeons are like that." Ayasha said. to Owain. "Let me know if anything changes and if you need any analgesics for pain." [16:51] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: The ship was granted permission by Rema control to depart and the dock unlatched from the ship. Mira transmitted an all call that the ship would be ready to depart shortly and all personnel should get to their launch stations. [16:52] Tuncecine: "I'll be fine if I walked away from an explosion unscathed I'd be more concerned." [16:53] Not a stupid Siri user.: "That could come in handy around here." Ayasha replied with a smile to Owain. [16:53] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (just imagine if these critters could heal with one of their fluids ROLOLOLOLOL) [16:54] Not a stupid Siri user.: (I'm sure Doctor Phlox would be all over that.) [16:55] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: The ship begins to move after all departments report in. [16:58] Not a stupid Siri user.: Aidan stepped onto the bridge. He had a standing order on the Bridge to punch whatever dumbass said "General on deck." If he wanted their attention, he could easily get it. He walked next to the center and the command chair, but said nothing. They had enough to do. [17:01] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (seems we have reached the end of this mission; anyone have other posts before we end this; also ideas for next mission?) [17:01] Not a stupid Siri user.: (I guess that depends on the data we got about the space monsters) [17:02] Not a stupid Siri user.: (and do we need to go back for a once over at a starbase?) [17:03] Not a stupid Siri user.: (maybe something a bit lighter, for a simple side mission where no one is trying to eat or kill us? ) [17:03] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (but being eaten is fun :D) [17:04] Not a stupid Siri user.: (for the GM maybe) [17:04] Not a stupid Siri user.: [17:05] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (Alrighty; looks like nobody has anything else though...) [17:05] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: <END SIM>
  8. ] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: <START SIM> As the group began to arrive to support Mira and Nik the church that Zalzk went into appears once more and a white haired man of only about his mid-twenties exits the church. He is wielding a large gem encrusted hammer. He is in a white vest, tan shirt and slacks that matched his shirt. "Hum... I arrived later than expected... Well that is a problem at least now they realize what we mean by unknowing ones." As he approaches the group he straps the hammer to his back again. "I am Kel... one of the guardians entrusted with the security of this place. Think of me as an extension of the elders of this village." Upon scanning him the realize he is an android. he is powered by gems though and much more advanced than anything the Federation had. If it were not for the existence of scanners he would be entirely indistinguishable from a biological organism as his mechanical body even bled. Haru could see intense amounts of magic emanating off of this guy.(edited) [16:07] Not a stupid Siri user.: (gem encrusted what??) [16:08] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (I could have sworn I typed it; I did later but jsut updated it; its a hammer) [16:08] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (a magical hammer) [16:11] Not a stupid Siri user.: "Lieutenant Niklas Blom. Most people call me Nik. The group of unknowing ones used to be in control of the people. We have changed that and probably made it possible for them to follow us. We apologize for the mistake and offer condolences for the loss of life here." Nik offered. [16:15] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: Kel nodded "I was just going to surmise as much... You disabled the holo barrier. Stopped the illusions and thus they could come here. At least you prove your loyalty by fighting alongside us. Tell me; what of the ones they controlled?" As Kel was explaining and chatting Mira couldn't help but get a picture of him; he was handsome after all. She chuckled to herself. Why did these reptilian creatures make someone who looked like a human, much less and attractive one as their defender... Couldn't they have made something much more useful or were they just trying to make their guards look like locals... [16:20] Not a stupid Siri user.: "We've made friends among the populace. I would say that not all are unknowing. They are purposely being kept in the dark by the ones that made themselves the leaders of the people. We found them to be evil and fought to give back control to the people." Nik paused. "Like any change this large, it will take time to develop and recover. Our aim is to help guide them into a better way for the good of the people."(edited) [16:25] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: Kel nods. "I see... Then we have a quest upon us to free this planet from them so it does not end up like Xan Kena... Much was lost there for corrupt leaders... Thus we traveled space and eventually ended up here training the large ones to do our bidding and be non-hostile; they are little more than animals, pets more so... Our people came here and made a village in this forest. That was when my masters created me and the three other guardians to emulate the locals both to keep them away but also fool them if necessary. They cannot be trusted." [16:26] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: "With exception to lord Zalzk that is." [16:26] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (he is meaning the guy isnt a pet) [16:28] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (Zalzk is like the next evolutionary stage of the big dinos) [16:30] Not a stupid Siri user.: "I won't disagree that some cannot be trusted. However I think that given time, there could be great change. Like anything worth having, it will be a struggle. My people would offer assistance to them as well as you. Our starship was damaged trying to get past the barrier with something we believed would hide us from the energy eating space monsters. I believe my people would like to have an outpost nearby. That would provide a great influx of opportunity." [16:35] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: Kel nodded. "We can assist you; we may have migrated here of our own accord but you as explorers would need to fly again." A few of the reptile humanoids come up as if summoned. "Get a fixer crew ready." One of them nods at Kel. "Yes Guardian." The one to his left responds leaving. "We also have a gift for you." the one to Kel's right said to the group. [16:37] Not a stupid Siri user.: Nik's interest was peaked at the offer of a gift. "We are honored. I am sure we have as much in common as we do that is different. It is nice to find new friends and not constant battle." [16:42] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: "War is futile especially when fighting one more powerful than oneself; it is guaranteed loss unless you have more manpower and even then; death comes with its own problems."Kel said. Mira hummed. The reptilian man transported an object into his hand and offered it. "Historical data for this sector and a wealth of knowledge from our former homeworld. To prevent repeats of our failures." [16:44] Not a stupid Siri user.: (shuttle have a replicator?) [16:44] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (yes) [16:48] Not a stupid Siri user.: Nik sent a command to the shuttle and had a copy of the device Aidan had given to the Princess made. The small cube appeared a short time later. "This is a small token in exchange. It's a history of our people along with much of our culture. Music, art, and literature." He picked the device up and handed it to Kel. [16:50] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: Kel nods and the reptilian takes the cube. "Well; you and your people can make use of our village for now until such time as our repair crews are ready. We can then discuss repairs to your ship and how we will go about defeating the unknowing ones." [16:51] Not a stupid Siri user.: Nik smiled. "Please let us know is there is anything we can do to help you as well." [16:52] ♡ ♪ Atsu ♪ ♡: (think this is a good pause point until others come about; plus we could do one on ones later anyway given that you know we basically have been given reign to chill)
  9. Hello, I am happy to announce; albeit late... That we have finally released a testing build of our Unity engine version of the game. To access this you will need to go to options by right clicking on the game and then going to Betas. Once you do this in the text entry screen with a password field enter "unitytest1234". With this code you will be able to opt into beta builds as we make progress on the Unity engine. I added this a few months back but still needed to do testing on to to make sure it was stable enough for public use. Happily it is playable up to where we currently are with the game. The team will provide more updates soon and hopefully another Unity patch. Once we get further in Unity development than we were in the other version the game files for the main build will be replaced with those from the Unity build. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. Atsu TNU Productions
  10. The New Universes Project: Eine Neue Reise Beginnt Season 4 - Episode 1: Alone in the Cold January 10th 4567 Morning Narrated by Mira Lowin After arriving at the village hidden in the forest we fought off and attack by the corporations that had overtaken Rema. In response the village's defender android; Kel offered to assist us. The team returned to the Lavie with Kel and some of the smaller dino-people who began to affect repairs to the ship. It was not long after that they completed most of the work for us. It seemed to these reptilian creatures we were archaic to them even if their town seemed low tech it appeared they had better technology than the Federation or our allies. That would explain why their ship was able to avoid the space monsters and live in harmony with whatever was around them... and why the locals wanted to capture them. I had also began to realize a new power of my own similar to that of the gems with the help of Kel.
  11. The New Universes Project: Eine Neue Reise Beginnt Season 4 - Episode 1: Alone in the Cold December 24th 4566 Late Night Narrated by Haruka Sumimori As our team arrived in the little explored part of Rema we headed of from the shuttle to explore only to end up getting lost in a fictitious sandstorm created by a holographic emitter. Disabling the emitter led into a forest where we soon encountered traps as night fell. Someone sure went to a lot of trouble to keep people from exploring this place...

  16. Hello everyone, This is just a quick announcement from SimmingHub that SciWorld; the annual convention about play-by-post role playing will be held this year on June 12th. This event has a long 20 year history and we are happy to be a part of it. Further information is on the combined SciWorld and FallFest Discord which can be accessed by viewing the SimmingHub conventions page. You can also visit the SciWorld website for more details. Josh
  17. <START SIM> As the group advanced further into the forest William fell over. It seemed the experience of being rescued from the hole along with the rest of the day had finally been too much for the new member of the team. Mira noticing one of hte team members vitals fluctuate she asks over VX. "What's the teams status; need us to pick anyone back up?" [17:00] (last time Oscar even asked about setting up a camp so lol; this makes that even more of a plosable situation lol; night time; a team member just passed out heh) Aidan — 05/09/2021 Ayasha knelt by William, waving her medical scanner she tapped her commbadge. "Give me a minute to set up an IV. Looks severe dehydration and heat exhaustion. He just needs to rest." Pulling out a bag of solution, she slapped the large patch on the now exposed arm. Thousands of tiny needles would carry the fluid into William without pain.(edited) ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ — 05/09/2021 (navigating a forest at night ) [17:03] "Understood." Mira begins to charge the transporter for when the medic was ready for the engineer to be taken away. She also turns back in her seat to the other engineer who had been chilling up to this point as not much had been needed from him up to this point. "Well; looks like you might have a job now since new guy kinda did himself in...." Tory Trace — 05/09/2021 Tory stretched his arms and legs as it was now his turn to join in. He had his standard search equipment with him, His EVA linked up with him on his wristband. Now he himself a few of his drone mice that were now field ready. "I dunno if I should feel honored or worried replacing him," Tory said with a little humor ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ — 05/09/2021 "No body has died yet... it'll be fine..." Mira said sarcastically. Traveling at night was probably not the safest idea but she was just here to support them and was here as a contractor... Even if technically she outranked everyone on the ground crew except Haru herself. "Just hope no tentacles come out of the ground and try to carry you into the depths." Aidan — 05/09/2021 Niklas looked around the area. "We need to establish camp. It's bad enough that we don't know the area. Stumbling around in the dark is a bad idea. Even as enhanced as we are. There is a clearing a few meters away. Let's set up there." [17:12] He couldn't find many rocks and the forest was very green. Stumbling on an tree that had fallen months ago, Nik broke off several meters of the large truck. Sap came out. A good sign.(edited) ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ — 05/09/2021 Maki moves into the clearing securing the area and casting a light spell from Mega. This way the group could at least see what they were doing while setting up camp. It even looked large enough for the shuttle to land safely. [17:14] "Provided this clearing isn't just another trap... it seems safe." Maki said. Aidan — 05/09/2021 Nik used his knife and hands to dig out small fire pit. Breaking up the trunk into a dozen pieces, he placed a few into the hole and shot it with his phaser. To no one in particular he offered. "This should burn safely all night with the sap." He didn't need the fire but others might or might want to cook.(edited) Tory Trace — 05/09/2021 Tory went to the storage on the shuttle and took out some sensor probes. "Well these probes should do the trick. I'll set this up around the perimeter," he said. It woudl at least give off a warning if anything is moving, whether animal or ground," he said as he would head out to start plugging the probe rods into the ground around their camp and shuttle ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ — 05/09/2021 Mira takes the shuttle in for landing but has a small probe land first to ensure it wasn't another hole. it doesn't fall into the ground. She brings the shuttle in to land. "Good idea; setting up a perimeter. The ground is stable..." Mira sends a situation report back to the Lavie. Aidan — 05/09/2021 Ayasha brings out a large carafe. Throwing in few large and dark tablets, she added 2 quarts of water and set it on the carafe on the fire. "Coffee in a few minutes."

The next morning I gathered together a group to take some of the team out so we can go and explore an unexplored part of Rema which the local governments tend to avoid due to encounters with the local creatures not being safe.

Ryuji said in jest. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ "We can't kill everyone indiscriminately... darn" Mira said still sitting on her box. Rockyeahh William watches this conversation unfold. "I don't trust this to go well." William walks back into the shuttle and sits in the pilot chair. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ "What could go wrong; I am not bringing a squad of marines... yet..." Haru said to William. Aya (Chan) Serena: Why use marines when you have enough weaponry to sweep a regiment? Chan: Serena. In heavy sarcasm Serena: I was being sarcastic. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ "Um... you know we have bombs that could wipe out planets right but this is a scientific mission... Talk first, death later." Haru explained to Chan and her AI still getting the joke though.

He quickly figures that everyone must already be at the shuttles and makes a run for it. "Damn it... Gotta get there before they leave." After a few minutes of running he reaches the bay and quickly gets inside the shuttle, then he mutters as he slightly pants; "S..Sorry...I'm a bit late."

  25. atsumari 21st Feb 2021 [8:25 PM] <START SIM> Given time to finally explore Rema without a gun to her head Haru decided to head down to the planet before the mission to get a look at the city. Now that they also had favorable relations with the government it also meant the populous wouldn't attack them; she hoped... Given that such a thing was not 100 percent certain she kept her sidearm with her. Haru had somehow managed to make Mira join her after reading the girl's file; taking command of this starship or rather being appointed to run it by Erin meant the crew was her responsibility... She felt that giving Mira human contact would be helpful... outside of just the crew. Mira invited the two people she trusted to come along; it may have seemed like a date to them but for her she just wanted to have an excuse to hide behind someone and be her normal lewd self; hiding her shyness and fear of large crowds behind normality. Not knowing the level of mental anguish this was causing her companion Haru also sent out sort of a... whoever is interested invite to members of the crew wondering who would show up. Tugar Ayasha came off shift the worst was over and the humdrum of patients getting better was the worst of it now. She had pulled a double shift and after a short nap and shower was bored. Not much to do on the ship. She headed for the bridge. Maybe a glance at the city such as it was would help. atsumari As she was headed to the bridge she would get the invite; that was sort of addressed... to the crew in general from the acting captain. Tugar Nik was cleaning up a bit of maintenance. He heard the VX ping from Haru and accepted the invitation. He packed his own gear in the pattern buffer, sidearm under a simple vest and headed for the bridge. Jack Pine Kessler and Jack would arrive, both dressed in their usual leather jacket and jeans sense of fashion. Both with a casual grin on their face as they arrived, soon giving everyone greeting smile and wave. "Been a while since I've been out on any town, thank you for the invitation. Of course I had to drag gramps along for the trip." Jack said in greetings as he pointed a thumb towards kess at the last part. "Oh bite me, you used to look far older then I did. Hello Mira, it's good to see you doing well, and I hope the treatments have helped. I wanted to come visit, but they've been working me to the bone." Came the ex-freight captains reply. Tugar Ayasha met Nik as he approached the bridge. "What's going on?" Ayasha asked. atsumari "Besides I invited her first... so you didn't drag him along..." Mira said to Jack sticking out her tongue childishly. "I'd understand why... I mean you are the only qualified pilot left wince the twins left and Layton was promoted lest they want me flying people around... I guess they figure I am more useful on the bridge operating the 3d map screen no one else on ship knows how to operate." Mira added smirking. "I hardly have had time to draw pictures of Tim doing naughty things to alien girls..." Haru rubbed the back of her head. "As fun as it is talking about each others age and sex with space monsters is.... is this really the place to rip on age or... um... talk about tentacle monster rape..." Mira grinned "yes; it is the time and the place... were on a floating catwalk in the sky next to an elevator right outside of our ship... nothing in the manual dictates we cant talk about such things on said catwalk..." Her eyes lit up as she said that staring at Haru in an almost obnoxious fashion. Tugar "Maybe I don't really want to know." Ayasha added. atsumari "We're llivin'... dear" Haru said to Ayasha. Tugar Sending commands to her VX, Ayasha changed into khaki pants and a pink windbreaker. "Just so we don't look like an errant gang" Nodding her head at Jack and Kessler. atsumari "Oh; everyone would totally know we are not... when you have her ina summer dress and me in my typical what most would assume is some college uniform..." Haru said shurgging "gangsters don't usually rock a blue sweater vest..." "Robbing people in this dress wouldn't go well..." Mira said as the elevator arrived and opened allowing entry into it. Jack Pine "Most gangs I knew of were a lot more like from the setting you guys call Mad Max. This is just kinda normal fashion for us." Kessler said looking to Jack, then at their attire. Jack chuckled, "That sounds cool, ours were dudes in surplus gear and trench coats." Tugar Nik chuckled a little at the suggestion. "I think it has more to do with our skillset than dress." atsumari "I'm the most harmless out of you all..." Mira suggested. Jack Pine Kessler grinned, "Can't help you're the cutest ray of sunshine too. We're all dressed for colder, and here you are embodying summer." Such a flirtatious comment got an eye roll from his friend. atsumari "She looks like shes fifteen..." Haru zinged back not meaning disrespect... the young were typically associated with beauty. Tugar Ayasha knew the history but kept quiet. atsumari Haru entered the elevator and set it to go down. "All aboard... next stop... the end times." Tugar Nik piped up. "Are we actually going or standing around talking?" atsumari Mira entered next given Nik's note; they had been standing here forever. Jack Pine Jack offered Haru his hand as Kess wasted no time in following. "Right right, apologies good doctor.", He said as he stepped in. atsumari Haru rolled her eyes at the doctor term being used. She knew Nik's background and technically she had enough experience to be one but given her lack of a doctoral degree she lacked that qualification even if she trumped half the people in the alchemy commission on advanced gem knowledge. At least those who were not of the level of Scott or Owain. atsumari Haru takes his hand and then closes the door as the lift starts to move going down on its invisible track down. "If you had a fear of highets this place would totally make you shit yourself." Mira commented noticing the rather open, grated nature of this elevator; you could see the outside... through it. Jack Pine "It's odd how advanced yet retro this place is, like a steam punk novel." Came Jack's comment as he looked the cage over in awe a bit. Kessler looked at it too but only nodded, "oddly reminds me of home." Tugar Nik offered, "Different planets progress technology at nonlinear rates. Not every planet needs every tech. Necessity is the mother of invention." atsumari "Totally something I should make some funness in.... heh..." Mira said pulling her tablet out of a small purse that should not have held something that large and snapping a picture with it. The elevator continues to move. Haru then says. "It is powered by a gem of sorts." The elevator eventually arrives. There were two Advocate guards there. Upon the groups arrival the advocates just let them through. Seems like they were more there so that people dont try to get onto their ship. Jack Pine As the group stepped out into area, Jack and Kess looked around at all the architecture and such. Neither had actually gotten to see either yet since their arrival. "Feels like I just stepped through the looking glass." Came the reply of one, before the other nodded in agreement. atsumari "Considering this is unexplored space it is not too far fetched you both would feel that way given you know... your not being from here..." Haru pointed out shrugging. "I mean this sector of space could be more like your home... nobody actually knows... heh..." Tugar Ayasha quipped. "I just hope they discovered fermentation." Jack Pine "well unless it's an expansive dessert with fighter planes and castles. That's a hard match up." Kessler said with a rub of his neck, feeling really out of place here. Jack simply rubbed Haru's hand, "Yeah, they do have the weird mix of ages going at least. Probably the most familiar part really, and I agree with Ayasha. A drink does sound nice after everything going on of late." atsumari "You forget we are in a barren space wasteland littered with death monsters that eat everything they encounter... this planet is the only vestige of hope in this sector... at least that anyone we have encountered on this planet knows of..." Haru said. Mira tilted her head saying "There was the planet Ceres and I were on but it was in the process of being fucked when I left... As far as where I was... Well drifting through space for awhile... You would have to ask my little ship's computer..." Jack noticed Haru was surprisingly warm. One of the advocates points to a building with a language they did not understand over it. "You need alcohol from the sounds of it..." it was on the first level o fa building that seemed to be either a hotel or an apartment building of sorts. The building looked like it had been through hell on the outside. Tugar "Then let's hope reinforcements come sooner, rather then later." Nik offered. Looking at the building he took the language and scanned the database for similarities. atsumari After attempting to translate it the words came out to a mixture of languages... that amounted to drinking parlor - game establishment - mixed hostel - private rented temporary dwellings. Tugar Nik offered, "Let mingle with the natives. If any place offers hospitality, this should be a good start." He walked in that direction, leading the group there. atsumari Mira followed but turned her attention to her tablet keeping one eye on ensuring she didnt run into something and the other on her screen. Haru let Jack to the place. Tugar Ayasha offers, "Um...did anyone bring any credits?" Jack Pine "I uh....only have our currency. I guess they don't have an exchange here?", Jack asked. atsumari As they get to the entryway a guy there puts out his hand. Mira looks at him confused. "cover?" "So you pay to get in?" "Ye..." "Oh... We're not from around here... heh.." "MMM... u's wit that space lot?" He... asked and noticed Haru. "yep I 'member..." The man signals them to stop but goes inside the building and comes back out with a guy in a suit. "Neak here tells me that you folks are with the group that saved city from the corporate overloads and made our business more profitable... I take you would like to use the services of our establishment?" Tugar "We can't turn them down now. That would just be rude." Ayasha siad. atsumari "Come with me" The man in the suit said. he took the group in the building and to a desk that was gated off by bars with a small set of windows. "Need to get these six comp cards and accommodations." The person behind the window nods " Yes sir Mr. Lang. Individual rooms of reach of you or?" The cashier asked. Jack Pine "I don't mind if we pair up, if you guys are okay with it.", Jack said looking to the others, then to Haru with a smile. Kessler tapped his chin before looking to Mira, "What do you say? Want to pair tonight?" atsumari Mira looked over at Nik seeming to want to know his thoughts first before deciding on her own. Haru nodded. " Couples... I mean if thats fine with folks..." Tugar "You guys do what you want. I need a drink and some dance floor." Ayasha said. atsumari Mira nodded. "Okay..." The cashier printed access cards for them that also apparently contained money so they could order food, play games and drink. In effect casino credit. Jack Pine Once the boys had gotten their cards, they considered what to do first. "How much is on these cards?", Jack asked, hoping to know their finances with this gift. atsumari "unlimited. everything is on the house; didn't you hear the owner... comp... your visit is courtesy of the house." the cashier said. <PAUSE> ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ (atsumari) 1st March 2021 4:50 PM <START SIM> Maki had once again taken up her post at the elevator since people were using it again. "Elevator girl make elevator go up... and down..." she mumbled to herself; it was better than doing nothing though. She didnt exactly understand this place's VR tech or much else and there was little for her and Ryu to do; since she followed him around and he in turn mostly did the same if he was not doing something there was little for her to do. She wondered if she should pick up a hobby in this place given that there was very little possibility she and Ryuji would ever leave this place at this juncture. The resort being next to where the ship drop off from the elevator was quite useful; it made the crew's ease of access to the place simple and impossible to get lost even if they sent one of Ceci's tachkoma's blinded due to its visual sensors being turned off; the four legged homicidal robot could find its way. Haru by this point was testing the waters of the planet's drink selection sitting at bar as one of the bartenders was given Mira a bad time with her childlike appearance. he would not serve her; the tiny girl was rather pissed off by the claims she was not of age. aqace100 Scott comes out of the bunker with Ceci, trying to see what's going on. Aidan Nik was more or less keeping an eye on the group. He did have the bartender get him a glass of something that was supposed to be top shelf liquor. It wasn't bad, but he'd had far better. Ayasha in the meantime, had already had a couple of shots of something and was on the dance floor. The beat was interesting, though the music was less than familiar. SlimJimTim Tim stops at the bar and socializes with the crew members while placing a order with the bartender. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ Ceci noticing most of the crew going to this casino... place... dragged her father along since he left his bunker. She had never experienced gambling and if guards got in her was they would regret the day they attempted to stop the child fembot from experiencing gambling and drinking. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ As the elevator reaches the ground level Ceci heads off to the casino. Maki voices what everyone would probably be thinking at that point "Isn't that a bad idea letting her roam like that?" aqace100 Scott turns to Maki and says the worst thing possible(sending murphy a gilded invitation) "Whats the worst that can happen?" ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ "Um... can't her left wrist shoot plasma fires...." Maki comments not knowing much beyond that of the technical-ness that is the android girl. She was after all still an idiot when it came to this galaxies technology. Tory Trace Tory joined the group going into the casino. Given that they are particularly strict on security he had to leave EVA behind. Something about that felt a bit strange and half empty without his AI with him. He was standing close to the group with Scott and Maki. "could she literally throw people around?" Tory suggested quietly to Maki and Scott. SlimJimTim After a few moments Tim finds a slot machine and takes a chance not being much of a gambler but not passing on the opportunity. aqace100 Scott responds, "Well I consider her a harmless little girl." ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ Maki looks back at Ryuji. Aidan Nik walks by, "If she kills someone, are you just going to shrug" He says to Scott. aqace100 Scott considers it for a minute and just shrugs saying, "probably." ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ Ceci comes over to the bar. The bartender looks confused; seeing that Ceci looks like a six year old. "God damn it; who keeps letting children in here..." "I'm not a kid you bastard..." Mira replied to him again. Aidan "You're a shitty parent" He replies to Scott. aqace100 Scott shrugs. SlimJimTim Tim walks back over to the bar. "Bartender, another drink please?" Aidan Nik walks over to Mira. "problem?" ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ The bartender serves him. Mira glares. "The fuck" She looks over Nik. "Guy says he wont serve me..." Tory Trace Tory leans closely to Scott and Maki. "You know, I probably would find it humorous how she's being treated if she wasn't so armed," he said with a chuckle. Aidan He asks what she wants. When the bartender delivers it, he hands it to Mira when he looks away. As the music changed to something slower, Ayasha bellied up to the bar, panting slightly, her skin hot from the dance floor. She waited her turn for a drink. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ Mira mumbles but takes the drink. She then goes over to the table occupied by group members. "Yay for being treated like a child... sometimes not looking your age and not having a huge rack... get annoying; it may be hard to hold but at least people dont tell you your a fucking teenager..." Mira whines. SlimJimTim Tim stands near the edge of the bar near the crew members enjoying the nightlifeness of the casino. Aidan Ayasha laughs a bit at her plight. "Well, since I am training to be a doctor, I can actually help you with both of those. A bit of work with a dermal regenerator will make you look older. Do you want a huge rack? These can be more trouble than they are worth sometimes." Ayasha says using a hand to move her ample rack a bit in a gesture. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ "Eh... Do I want bigger boobs... no; im just saying it would help... and do I want a different body; like umm... I had cloning guys talk to me about that; why would I be giving myself injections of nanomachines to keep me from dying if I wanted a different body..." Mira said. SlimJimTim Tim drinks a sip and laughs. "Well get the bigger boobs then Mira." Aidan "True. We could give you Holo-boobs!" Ayasha quipped. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ "I could seriously just put myself in a box and walk around as hologirl if I wanted to do that... Remember... I can hook into computers folks..." She stuck out her tongue. Haru joins the people at the table. "Finally got someone to get you a drink... took you long enough..." SlimJimTim Tim steps from the edge of the bar and finds a spot at the table to sit at. Aidan Ayasha downed the rest of her drink. The tempo in the dance floor changed again to something fast as she headed that way. ♤Oscar♤ Oscar walks over to the counter from the corner, greeting everyone. "Hey fellas' I thought of joining in as well.. I hope no one minds.." Oscar says a bit shyly, rubbing the back of his head as he looks away slightly. SlimJimTim Tim waves at Oscar. ♡ ♪ Haru ♪ ♡ "No one would mind; you are part of our group aren't you..." Haru said to him as he joined them. ♤Oscar♤ "Yeah...I guess so.." Oscar replies vaguely. "I don't have memories of anyone from my past before getting tossed in the void.. And sometimes I feel like I just don't deserve to be with great people like you guys, I'll end up fucking up something eventually.." He sighs and raises his hand to order a drink. Aidan Nik smiled. "Someone has to. At least you aren't offering to glass a planet." SlimJimTim Tim looks at his glass empty. "Order another for me would ya Oscar." ♤Oscar♤ "Sure thing." Oscar gives a short reply to Tim, then looks at the bartender. "An Irish Coffee for me and another drink for that Tim over there, it's on me." SlimJimTim Tim raises his empty glass.
