Myrr Corta log:
Star date Computer Won’t Tell Me
Fucking Minmatars. Seriously, they’re going to be the death of me.
So apparently we’ve all lost our memories. The entire crew, or what remains. Most lie dead across the ship, and now I’ve got fusion-jockeys running half my ship. At least it’s my ship, or we’d have some problems.
Anyway, Computer says I should start writing a log in case something like this happens again, I’ll at least have some memories to draw from. Seems like sound logic. I’m more concerned as to why our computer is apparently capable of giving advice.
Keiren Krusual. I’m either gonna shoot him, or I’m beginning to like him. He knows what he’s doing, certainly, but he’s gonna be the first person to turn on me if anything happens, mark my words. Until then, he’s definitely an asset. Best hacker I’ve ever heard of. Well, at least I think so.
Damian Strauss. This guy just disturbs me, walking around my ship with a grenade launcher. Granted, it’s a great weapon, but if I ever see that thing’s safety off in my ship again I’m going to dismantle it. I don’t need a hole in the ship mid-warp. He strikes me as the kind of guy who’d do it, too. Great mechanic, though. Wouldn’t expect anything less of a Caldari – great at what they do, terrible with PR.
Hastar Nefantar. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a prettier human being in my life, holy shit. Couldn’t threaten his way out of a wet paper bag, though, but given how he shoots I don’t think that’s gonna matter. I either need to stop drinking around him, or drink a lot more. Fuck. Minmatars are gonna be the death of me.
And Faust Duvalier. I don’t even know where to begin. He’s…. a Gallente. I’d say I don’t know what possessed me to team up with a promiscuous hippy, but he managed to convince a few of our enemies to join us, so I guess I actually do know. Apparently I slept with him at one point, too. Ugh, I really just hope I don’t find out I’m married to him.
This mission has been a disaster. Someone broke open a canister of bioweaponized gas – presumably not Faust’s, but I don’t have the proper equipment, or desire, to test that – and it killed most of our crew, including the mooks we brought along to bust in. Our ship is blown half to shit, I’ve got bounty hunters after me for Emperor knows what – probably worth it, though – and people keep shooting at me. I even lost my shit at one point and told someone to shoot me, point blank, in the chest. Luckily she didn’t do it, though, I’d’ve hated to have to kill her. I have a feeling I’m gonna need the favor I got from sparing her later.
As for this gas, it better be worth it. I suppose we’ve done a community service by stopping its development and stealing all the (known) research, but this job better pay at least 11 digits – the higher end of it. I don’t feel like I’ve ever killed a client before, but he paid me for the research and gas, not to not kill him. Considering how much this mission went tits up, that might end up being a painful oversight on his part.
We’ve also picked up Je’int, Ilet, and Zhu’Li, who I’ve taken to calling Serah because I actually like this girl and feel she deserves a name worthy of the Emperor’s light.
Shit, this log has been all over the place. I’m so tired. Commanding a ship and multiple drones all at once is difficult. That’s all for now. I’d better go check on the Minnies before I find out they’ve tried to install a fusion reactor with duct tape just to see what they’ll blow up on my ship.
End of Log
1) The crew wake up alone and injured, sore everywhere and with nasty headaches. They explore the ship, meet each other, and discover a little about themselves, their Ship, and their situation.
2) The crew notices 2 ships warp into the area at extreme range, a Minmatar Rupture Cruiser and a Minmatar Thrasher Destroyer. The crew make a plan to fix their ship and escape which includes an attempts to board the station to activate its hopefully still functional artillery cannons. Myrr Commands and Steers the ship – eventually also using its drones. Hastar observes the nemy and mans the ships few remaining guns. Keiren does quick repairs to the ships computer mainframe and then Jams the enemy’s communications and sensors/targeting arrays. Damian and Faust enter the station and start exploring. They build some bombs, kill the remaining survivors, capture the station Captain, charm a soldier [[Je’int]] into joining them, and most importantly get the 2 large artillery cannons working and fire on the enemy ships.
3) After destroying the Rupture and subduing the Thrasher, most of the party returns to the station to continue exploring and find some salvage to repair the ship. They have a few more combat encounters, recruit another soldier to join them Ilet, negotiate the surrender of the last remaining cache of survivors on the station, recover the bioweapon that did so much damage to everyone on the station / themselves/ and their previous Sansha Nation soldier crew members. They also recruit Zhu-Li (previously called Ser’ah)) to join as a pilot to replace Myrr. Damian does a legendary job quickly salvaging parts while other crew members attend to other repairs/details before leaving.
4) Were attacked by a Gnosis Battlecruiser under the command of Jerac Ni-Kunni, who apparently had a bad history with Myrr Corta. The crew manages to fend them off, repair their ship, navigate successful to leave, and also a well placed shot by Hastar knocks out the Gnosis Battle-cruisers ability to warp after them. The crew escapes, heading for the Gate out of the N8Xa-L System to the R3-K7K system. During this time they decompress, nap, explore their quarters, and do other personal tasks.
Keiren Krusual : Hit me if you can: ECMing the enemy Rupture, rolled 4S.3adv.2Triumphs – crippling their ships guns for an entire round no blues, no bonuses, no aiming causing them to miss 100% of the time and take system and personal strain.
Hastar Nefantar : Its what I do: Ridiculously good shot with a Linked Rail gun: 10S.4adv.1Triumph. Hitting the enemy ship for 16(-4 armor) damage and crippling the Thrashers warp capabilities causing them to surrender.
Damian Straus : That would look wonderful on our ship: 4S.2adv.2Triumphs on super quickly salvaging parts from the station and ship wrecks in the stations hanger bay and bringing back the perfect parts to fix the micro-warp drives and reinforced shield generator.
Myrr Corta : I double fucking dare you : her 5S.2adv.1Triump intimidation check walking up to the enemy with the gun out and daring her to shoot you.
