Leaving the Station 1.1

Post by PaperDragon »

1.1 TRAIN TO KINGSDALE

A hover train runs between the kingdoms of Kingsdale and Whykin. The last tenuous thread that links the two kingdoms as they diverge in philosophy and goals. In the wake of the Tolkeen the shadow of the Coalition stretches across these two kingdoms. One looks at the Coalition and wonders when it will end their lives, the other looks at the Coalition as something to emulate further stretching that thread.

Today the train loads cargo and people like it has everyday, but today is not a typical day. Among the commuting citizens of Kingsdale and Whykin is a hero of renown. Sir Jaspin is a retired Cyber Knight and hero of Whykin. His words of calm and rationality have kept the kingdom from fully falling under the Coalition's influence. As the spark of war threatens to light a burning pire of death and destruction, Sir Jaspin travels to Kingsdale to discuss the quickly deteriorating situation.


LOCATION - Hover Train
Car 1 - Engine.
Zone 1 - Bridge.
Zone 2 - Engine

Car 2 and 3 - Passenger cars.
Zone 1 - Front half.
Zone 2 - Back half.

Car 4 - Dining car.
Zone 1 - Front half seating.
Zone 2 - Mid Section/Bar.
Zone 3 - Back half seating.

Car 5 through 7 - Cargo


Today the train is quite full as both the daily passengers and the various new passengers because of Sir Jaspin and his retinue.
Tip 1 - Regular passengers can easily identify the non-regular passengers.

Car 4/Zone 3
Sir Jaspin and Carina Hart sit at a table chatting casually. Two Whykin soldiers stand near Sir Jaspin and two corporate soldiers stand near Carina. Both sets of guards eye each other suspiciously. The Whykin soldier more so as Carina’s ears indicate her elven heritage.


Players
What are you doing?
What Location?
You may make a Notice Check to overhear conversations.
Rolls to identify passengers can be made if so desired. There is no specific skill roll just explain why you think it applies.
Restriction
Car 4/Zone 3; or the location Sir Jaspin and Corina are in, is blocked off. Seats were filled prior to the majority of passengers arriving. An air if sharpened knives radiates from Car 4/Zone 3
The engine car is locked and protected by 5 inches of Mega-damage steel door.
Cargo Cars are also locked.

the passengers and taking in the socializing of all parties, conversations, and activities. As he finishes his port he sets the glass down and stands straitening his armor. Time to make myself known.He walks casually towards the cars most notable guests. He bows, and says “Sir Jaspin, Ms. Hart, Xander Leopold, formerly of Tolkeen, currently of Kingsdale. I know what you are thinking, and yes of THOSE Leopolds. It is an honor to meet you in person.” He grabs a chair from a nearby table swings it around and sits in it backwards. “FYI the sexual tension between your guards is palpable and frankly it is making everyone in the car uncomfortable. Please ask them tone it down a bit. On a more important note, I am happy to see you together, especially in light of your mission Sir Jaspin. I do not envy Whykin’s position especially in light of the fate of my home. And although my welcome in Whykin grows thin with its evolving culture, I sympathize with Whykin’s plight. In spirit of seeing as many municipalities avoid the fate of Tolkeen,
Persuasion: d4!+1: [4!, 1]+1 = 6 , d6!: [2] = 2

The table looks at Leopold as a group. The two Whykin Soldiers growl at Leopold under their breath. The two corporate guards snigger.

Unphased Sir Jaspin nods. “Have a seat.” He smirks at Leopold already joining his table. “It’s nice to meet you Mr. Leopold. I’ve only heard of your family, but have not had the pleasure of meeting. Are you part of my protection detail also?” He glances at Corina who side eyes Leopold.

Corina is known for being commanding and according to rumors controlling. Things that are out of place need to be put back. “Good afternoon Mr. Leopold. I’ve met your father, but I don’t believe we have ever been introduced. Are you here on behalf of your family?”

Corina is a well known figure among the elite of Kingsdale. As the second in command of the Miraculous Corporation she has a lot of resources at her disposal. It is believed more than one suitor has found themselves reconstituted into toilets made by the Miraculous Corps, Auto-Nano factory. As Corina’s marketing campaign explained, Even the most disgusting trash can be made useful again.

John is in the front passenger car, making his way to the lavatory. His current mission for the Tomorrow Legion is to protect Sir Jaspin and prevent any attempts to interfere with the Cyber Knight's efforts to maintain the peace between Whykin and Kingsdale. While he personally thinks Kingsdale would have the upper hand if war breaks out, he has to agree with the assessment that in the end the only real winner of such a war would be the Coalition States.

Once alone in the lavatory and away from any observers John
Focus roll 1d10!: [2] = 2 Focus Wild Die roll 1d6!: [6!, 1] = 7 , Focus roll 1d10!: [2] = 2 Focus Wild Die roll 1d6!: [4] = 4
. Ever since his arrival on Earth he has taken special care to keep his mutant abilities secret. While psionics seem as ubiquitous on Earth as they are back home, mutant superpowers appear to be much rarer and obscure on the planet's surface. Which means keeping his powers secret would give him an edge against unsuspecting opponents like Coalition agents.

Now invisible and intangible, John makes his way to the front of the train. One of the most obvious ways to throw a monkey wrench in Sir Jaspin's mission would be to sabotage the train, so he figures his first step should be to
Repair roll 1d8!: [8!, 8!, 8!, 7] = 31 Repair Wild Die roll 1d6!: [3] = 3
to see if anyone has attempted to do that.

A youngish quick flex sits in a booth, one earbud an ear. The other sits on his table producing tiny, tinny music associated with the Bubble Dragon game franchise. His attention is mostly on a laptop in front of him and one could assume just he's playing said game as he waits for the train to depart. One would be wrong.

Over his internal radio he replies to the corporate sec guards he's here working for. "Sounds like ve have some Legion here to "help", vunderbar." While Klaus generally liked the do gooders they could be a bit much. And if their presence at the negotiations became known it could complicate things by making K-Dale appear closer to the Legion politically than was actually the case. Thus garnering more scrutiny from the neighboring Coalition States than the free wheeling city state already got. Maybe the celebutante was really just here coincidentally he hoped.

Adding the known legion comm frequencies to the list of ones he's inline=observing. He continues to watch for any electronic signs of trouble as he motions for the wait staff for more coffee. This was not his usual sort of job, intel gathering or industrial espionage were more up his alley, but it was a good chance to improve his connections in Miraculous Corp.

A tall blonde man wearing old world Mark II battlefield armor stands at the bar of the dining car, quietly munching on an egg filled rollup. His head is canted slightly as he attempts to
Notice 1d6!: [6!, 3] = 9 , Wild 1d6!: [5] = 5
on the conversation between the elf and the celebrities.
"Corwin! Want anything to drink with that?"The bartender might as well have screamed in his ear.
Recovering and with a finger in his ear, Corwin replies, "No Leeze, I'm fine with water."
"It's Liz, you goof," she replies, smiling. Corwin puts up a hand in supplication, as he glances fore and aft trying to
Common Knowledge 1d6!: [3] = 3 , Wild d6!: [5] = 5
who is new besides the celebrities and their guards. Having ridden this train a few times on his new security gig, he had learned to put a mental checkmark next to new faces.
Corwin blushes

The pilot and co-pilot look sharp and attentive. An air of professionalism gives John confidence they are up to the task. One floor down the engineer walks the sensor lined corridor and notates a data pad when he checks a system. He also seems to be on point for todays trip. The sheer mundanity of watching the crew for even 5 minutes would put any normal person into a coma.

All Legion personnel were notified that the Pilot and Co-Pilot are Kingsdale residents and the engineer is a Whykin citizen.

John looked over the tech manual for this class of hover train just one more time last night, even if his brain said he didn’t need too. Something that struck him, last night, was a data port inside one of the server lockers. It was odd because it was three ports, two on the left of the panel, one on the right. It was just an odd design. Probably a cost savings method by not putting a fourth in. Yet all of that random tangent from last night comes roaring back as he sees a 5 inch tall, one inch deep box, plugged into the three ports. It sits on the ports like a box plugged into a wall outlet. No one would have even paid attention or noticed inside the server cabinet, but John knows there isn’t supposed to be something there and he just happened to be phasing by.

TAXLEIA Laughs at Klaus. The Altara Warrior is nestled in a corner with a decent view of the whole car. She is a Miraculous Corp employee and Carina’s bodyguard. She hired Klaus for this mission because his expertise would compliment her skills closing any gaps she might have in protecting Carina.

“We can at least count on them to make it harder to shoot Carina or Sir Jaspin. The more bodies in the way, the more people to shoot through.”

Klaus scans the frequencies looking for radio signals that may be other operatives communicating with each other. At least 5 frequencies are encrypted and offer a good guess as to how crowded this train is with spooks. (Hacking Roll to decrypt.)

Liz gets mischievous and subtly casts a spell to add a bit of strawberry flavor. She is one of the many Kingsdale residents who practice magic. Corwin knows she works shifts on the train on the days she’s not in classes to learn potion making. Her creative drink concoctions have made her popular among the regular passengers and she is usually tipped quite well.

Corwin’s glance around the car picks out about 11 unfamiliar faces among the 20-25 people in the car. (The train cars are as wide as a jumbo jet with the bar in the center of the car.)

An exhaustive list is probably over kill, so we should definitely make one! We’ll identify by hair style.

Human 1 - a stylish hair cut that is short on the sides and long on top. This style is more suited for the cosmopolitan mega-cities rather than Whykin’s rustic logger population or Kingsdale’s Magic/cyber-punk that often adds a bit of outlandish that usually requires magic to make doable.

Human 2 - a clean military crew cut. He wears aviator glasses in the car and manages to make the whole thing look cool.
Human 3 - Sits with the crew cut. Her hair is pure black and in a pixie style. Her and Human 2 sit close like they are a couple.

Human 4 - is buzzed to stubble, but he has a full beard that is 3 inches long. The style is typical of Whykin “loggers” with long beards being a show of masculinity.

Altara Warrior 5 - A close cropped cut like everyone of them seems to have. It’s like their clones. :)

Human 5 - A cowboy hat. Who knows what his hair style is, the darn thing makes it impossible to tell. He sits at a table with two regulars and regales them with trivia about knives. Your pretty sure Steve the regular is about to stab the cowboy with the knife being showcased.

Elf 6 - She wears her golden hair long and styled like the Elven aristocrats. Except she doesn’t wear the subtle jewelry Kingsdale’s Elven aristocrats wear to signal family or clan relations.

Human 7 - a Kingsdale style if Corwin has ever seen one. Slicked back with a continuous wave like a wind is constantly blowing in his face. He works on a smart-communicator (Smart phone) that looks large enough to house a super computer but small enough to qualify as a smart-communicator.

Human 8 - his hair looks perfect. It’s so perfect it’s hard to describe. If Corwin could style his hair like that, he’s sure it would instantly make him a vid-celebrity.

Human 9 - Her red hair is long and pulled back in a pony tail like she’s ready for the dung to hit the fan.

She maintains pose, but narrows her eyes as Leopold essentially gives her the “Kiss of death” with in her sub-culture.

“Yes, well. Family can be difficult.” She pulls her hand away with a slight jerk.

Sir Jaspin moves the conversation along. “The Coalition is a tricky subject right now. I can’t agree with there policies towards non-humans but it’s hard to argue the protection they inadvertently offer to all the people of North America. I hope to temper the minority that wants to join the coalition but that minority is only slight. Poloing suggest 48% support to join. It’s assumed if we do join, war will be immediately declared. Hopefully we can work with the Kingsdale Senate to keep the peace.”

Carina raises an eyebrow. “As I understand it, your king wants Kingsdale reduce our weapons stockpiles by 50% and allow inspectors to make sure we maintain that amount. I don’t think Whykin Minders would be welcomed by the Senate or the citizens.”

A chill seems to spread across the table. Daniel Hines returns from the rest room, a man who’s whole appearance is slimy politician. His suite is nee but not expensive, his hair basic, and his eyes are like knives poised to strike. “Kingsdale has created this situation with the unprovoked build up of weapons and defense. Even your patrols have increased, our defenders see more and more of your Rangers flitting through the forests. We rightly will defend ourselves if you continue these provocative actions we sould have no choice.”

Carina opens her mouth but Sir Jaspin pats her hand. A fatherly aura radiates, stopping her from saying something that likely involved shoving items in orifices. “Relax Daniel. I know for a fact the Senate is prepared to discuss increased avenues to peaceful coexistence.” Giving Carina a warm smile. “I’m sorry Carina, the secretary gets a bit excitable.”

TAXLEIA Laughs at Klaus. The Altara Warrior is nestled in a corner with a decent view of the whole car. She is a Miraculous Corp employee and Carina’s bodyguard. She hired Klaus for this mission because his expertise would compliment her skills closing any gaps she might have in protecting Carina.

“We can at least count on them to make it harder to shoot Carina or Sir Jaspin. The more bodies in the way, the more people to shoot through.”

Klaus scans the frequencies looking for radio signals that may be other operatives communicating with each other. At least 5 frequencies are encrypted and offer a good guess as to how crowded this train is with spooks. (Hacking Roll to decrypt.)
Taking a sip of coffee, the freelancer notes a spike in local comms activity. Minimizing the game he'd been playing while doing initial scans to focus more fully on the task. A faint smile plays on his lips as he tunes in and starts hacking.
Hacking to decrypt
Modifiers: Cyber +2, Field Intel +2. Net +4
Hacking d10!!+4: [14!!]+4 = 18
Hacking Wild d6!!+4: [2]+4 = 6
The smile widens as he quickly isolates the various signals and the decryption algorithms start to dig in.

Tax, ve have several encrypted channels present, I should have access shortly."

Jobs outside of town always skeeved him out and he tended to avoid them whenever possible so Klaus was glad to have something concrete to do finally. He was here because Taxleia was an old friend from his days in Kingsdale Security forces and she asked him to work the job. Even went out of her way to get Carina to approve a freelancer for the sensitive operation instead of one of her own security people.

Sir Jaspin moves the conversation along. “The Coalition is a tricky subject right now. I can’t agree with there policies towards non-humans but it’s hard to argue the protection they inadvertently offer to all the people of North America. I hope to temper the minority that wants to join the coalition but that minority is only slight. Poloing suggest 48% support to join. It’s assumed if we do join, war will be immediately declared. Hopefully we can work with the Kingsdale Senate to keep the peace.”


"All politics aside, as I said I understand Whykin's plight. Watching a power like Tolkeen fall under the Iron Fist of the CS is truly terrifying. The CS resorts to policies of war in the name of peace. Sure the CS offers protection for humans. Non-humans have political power in Kingsdale. It will be a harder sale of peace at the price of the elimination of non-humans. Not to mention, that it is quite bold of the CS to use Whykin to ask for disarmament after the annihilation of a city who refused to bow down to the CS. The timing makes it appear that they want to disarm Kingsdale as much as possible to ease the process of invading them. But the CS will also say their refusal to disarm is an indication that Kingsdale is a threat and use that as justification to invade. Whykin seeing a potential threat from the CS saw a common ground. Hatred of nonhumans and used that to begin forming peace, which I completely understand after seeing the fall of Tolkeen. Whykin chose the path of least resistance. No need to stand up to the CS for those you already hate. Kingsdale will be much different, but I applaud your attempt to keep the pace Sir Jaspin."

"Intriguing, is Whykin and its new crony the CS willing to do the same? Disarm and allow inspectors? Let me guess, no. Diplomatically this seems to become a harder sale every moment."

"Intriguing point Mr. Hines. You believe it is only appropriate to begin building an arsenal during the invasion then? Let me see if I can present this to you in a manner you can grasp. Tolkeen was a provocation to any country or city state that welcomes non humans. No country is going to sit idly by and be destroyed. Fortunately for Whykin a large swathe of your citizens share CS's sentiment for nonhumans. That is an easy sell for you. Kingsdale not so much. Whykin is scared of the CS and for good reason and it has pushed into the situation you find ourselves now. It would seem to me your play is to send a neutral party, the good Sir Jaspin, to make this 'plea for peace'. It will fall on deaf ears. You know that already." He pauses for a moment.The refusal itself is not enough for war. There has to be an inciting event. Something that would rally the Whykin to finally submit to the CS and join them in a war against Kingsdale. Like the assassination of a Whykin hero on a peace mission. F$$k me. "I am sorry I just realized I am late for an appointment. It has been a pleasure Ms. Hart and Sir Jaspin. Mr. Hines, our short time together has been short but insightful. I hope you guys have a good rest of your trip." I have to find the Legion detail immediately. He gets up and leaves the dining car hastily to find anyone who might be on the security detail.

Leopold will stop the first Legionnaire he sees. Flash his ID and ask to speak to the detail commander immediately.

Corwin takes a sip of his water... water? Then inclines his head toward Ly...Lye...Li...iz! That's it! he thinks. Then he slips something nice into her tip jar. He marks in his mind the newcomers. Judging people by their haircuts has always worked well for him. The short cropped ones are usually reliable, at least in their sense of duty. He is a bit suspicious about the fancier ones. He gives a shake to his own flowing blonde locks as he admires the one he identified as "Human 8"
Warmth fills him as he ponders his pride at the accomplishments of the children of Earth in their few millenia, and just barely retracts his feet in time as the Elf... Leopold was it? Yes that is what I overheard... bustles by him. Doubtful he would have tripped over me, he looked ready to jump over my feet if need be. Elves created an interesting sensation in the pit of his stomach, perhaps because they too were an old race... from their own world. They seemed to look burdened, yet simultaneously hopeful. Perhaps they shared a burden and sense of responsibility for the children...not just the human ones...
Corwin relaxed back against the bar, staring out the window at the gentle blue daytime glow of the ley line in the distance.

Observe and make sure nothing gets out of hand. Yeah of course. I mean, yessir. As if I'm the one that's going to *prevent* things from getting out of hand. I wonder if they are going to realize that things are already out of hand. I'm not even sure they know whose hand. This is a test for me to see if I am going to f*** up a delicate situation, with people to bail me out if I do.

Or maybe they think your unstable element can serve them.

In the corner of the forward passenger car, Sarah played her role as a daily, having been planted here recently in anticipation of increased traffic. Well, something was definitely up today and the VIPs were about. Did anyone tell today's other obvious agents that she was here or are they going to be left to figure that out once the fun begins?

Staying away from the center of attention -- that's not where the planning happens anyway -- she kept tabs on who boarded, when and where, checking off all the other dailies (which she wasn't and isn't, instead being an intermittent laborer as far as anyone knows). But more importantly she looked for the unspoken interactions between them, especially between those in the same groups, and what they were carrying. And even more so, the scents. Though she hated it, everyone now has a distinct odor and rhythm she had not ever noticed as a hematypical. She was on a giant, moving spice rack.

No one is in character all the time.

Yeah, I get it.

Clad in a black leather jacket and hood, complete with (folded open for now) mask and heavy, dark sunglasses, Sarah internally mocked her own appearance as a would-be "mysterious stranger" and wondered if anyone else found it amusing. Or unsettling.

Stay the course, kid. They aren't ready for you but you have to be. Prove them wrong.

(over an hour later as activity continues without her, for the most part) She nervously begins to buff out the scratches her idle fingernails had made in the table.

Nope, guess not. Maybe I'm not cut out for this hero sh*t.

Who said you were a hero?

You're one to talk. And you can shut up now.

Secretary Hines watches Leopold leave and puts on a fake smile. “Well, he was direct. I’m sure Kingsdale will make the right decision.”

Carina rolls her eyes and mean girl sighs. It would easily be Oscar nomination worthy.

Sarah smells something she’s never smelled before. It’s not puke. Or blood. It’s metalic-ee.

Rubin (Train staff) bumps into the bar next to Corwin. “Liz, give me some towels.” He pauses and scrunches his nose. “And a pale. Someone’s puking and it’s just disgusting.”

While several of the signals obviously pertain to the VIPs, a couple stand out to Klause. The last message in particular alarms him.

"Tune into the channel I'm linking with the enclosed decrypt package so ve can triangulate their position. They seem hostile to Jasper. Red there may also be trouble, she's giving play by play to someone. Also, if our guards could maintain radio silence that vould make this easier."


Once Tax has her comm tuned and linked with his Hans tries to triangulate the distance and direction of the final signal, then overlay that onto a map of the train.
Electronics to triangulate (if possible. if not I understand)
Modifiers;Cyber +2, Field Intel +2. Provisional Net +4
Electronic d8!!+4: [2]+4 = 6
Electronics Wild d6!!+4: [10!!]+4 = 14
As he works out the triangulation he notes the young (? one can never really tell) elf sweep out in a hurry with an alarmed looked. He wonders if he missed the Ice queen shooting him down, or maybe she dismissed the Legion offer of help. Again. And with her customary charm.

The triangulation takes a couple minutes but the man previously identified as Human 1, with a hair doo only a mega-city dweller would sport. The encryption is high grad and would require state of the art cybernetics. Something everyone would have trouble getting a hold of, unless your Coalition. He’s using some kind of Cyber-Radio, designed to translate mental signals into a signal that can be translated by a radio or communicator. Which is to say he has a brain device that translates his thoughts into a vocalization so someone on the other end of the radio can hear him speak and not need special tech to translate the data signal.

(As a note, “Red” (obviously the red head) is using a sub-vocal mike. Klaus or his equipment would be able to notice the difference.)

When John spots the unfamiliar device plugged into the data ports his first instinct is to remove it but then he realizes that wouldn't be the best move. Even if he takes it out now there's still a good chance it's already done things to the train's systems. He neither has the access nor the familiarity with the train's software to spot any alterations it might have made, which means the next thing he'd have to do is inform the crew. A move which would require him awkwardly explaining his own presence in a restricted area.

On the other hand, if a crew member somehow discovered the box's presence then they would naturally check the train's systems afterward as a precaution without John needing to make his presence known. With that logic in mind John becomes tangible while still maintaining his invisibility. Once he's solid he gets to work
Repair roll 1d8!: [2] = 2
Roll Repair Wild Die roll 1d6!: [5] = 5 With a +3 from his Armor and Field Repair Kit the final result is an 8, which is a Success and a Raise
. All he has to do is make it appear that there's been a malfunction and the engineer should soon be along to check it out, which would conveniently let him come across the box. He'll then either remove the device and do the necessary checks or he'll ignore it, the latter of which would be proof he's a mole for whoever is behind it.

Once he's done John
Focus roll 1d10!: [5] = 5 Focus Wild Die roll 1d6!: [1] = 1 Success.
and waits for the engineer to show up.

Excitement!

Shut it.

Sarah steps up as if headed to the bar but then "couldn't help but notice" the nearby chuckage. Well I wanted an adventure, I s'pose. she chuckled.

Let me help, she offers and grabs a second towel to assist, using the opportunity to gauge the situation.

Marvin rubs his chin. “That was one of the scenarios predicted. That or kill Carina, but no one wants to piss Dr Miraculous off that much.”

Gage nods. “Yes, harming Carina is a one way ticket to arch nemesis status with the Doctor. The Legion has the highest probability that the train would be sabotaged and stopping the talks all together.”

Marvin chuckles. “Did any of your people predict a rift opening in a cargo car and a wave of psychotic 4 inch blue warriors swarming out and feasting on the bodies of the train passengers?”

Gage’s jaw drops. “Who does your intel gathering?”

Marvin shrugs. “We use a quantum prediction software.”

Gage looks at Leopold, grasping at any straw of normal rifts earth. “Leopold, do you suspect anyone in particular, in this train, that may be about to kill Sir Jaspin?”

The engineer taps the screen and drops his shoulders. Mumbling about the inept technicians, he opens the cabinets and checks various systems. It takes a couple minutes, as he works in a professional manner, checking various systems. When he reaches the unusual box he pauses. Gears turn and he scrunches his eyebrows.

“Alexa, show me the schematics for cabinet 12-478.”

He rotates the schematic in the screen and taps the port. “Alexa access this port.”

“Accessing. Error. Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger, French Fries, Cheeseburger, Milkshake, Milkshake, Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger..”

The data pad keeps repeating those words and even the screen becomes likes if text scrolling along.

A group of four people sit around a teenage kid. He’s pale and black icker drips from the corner of his lip. A pool of the stuff collects in a coat.

“Don’t worry kid. These trains can really do a number on you of your not used to them.” The man rubs his back. A regular traveler but the kid not so much. More an infrequent traveler. Once a week rather than daily.

The icker is just odd. Thicker than blood, but contains blood, along with other metallic scents.

Two of the less intelligent passenger poke at the pool.

“Jeez kid, I’ve cleaned up after a Juicer party and the stuff that came back up out of them was less disgusting them this.”

Another passenger wipes the goop off their face. She is not as cordial about the situation.

Rubin walks off with a stack of towels. Past Gage, Leopold, and Marvin. Into car two where Sarah stands with a group of passengers helping the teenager.

Liz hands Corwin the pale with hand cleaner (think cordless hand vacuum.) “Are you trying to impress a girl into having drinks with her later?”

Gage sighs. “I doubt we could convince him of doing half of what your asking.”

Marvin chuckles. “That man will jump in front of his bodyguards to save them from the person trying to kill him. “

Gage watches several people walk by with towels, then continues. “One if Carina’s guards is a friend of mine. Her name is Taxleia. She’s the Altara Warrior in the dinning car. If anyone can get you a chat it would be through her and Carina.”

Gage isn’t dismissive but he seems comfortable with his current plan.

Did you say it was trying to communicate, Sunshine? Ask it to ID itself and what it's doing here.

Can you understand this language? Are you sentient? What are you and why are you here? What is your purpose in this boy's stomach? Or out of it?

A noise reaches the seats in Car 3 where Gage, Marvin, and Leopold sit.

Gage shakes his head. “I guess a fight broke out anyway. The tension was bound to cause a few punches to be thrown. Leopold, I do believe Taxleia will be your best avenue to speak with Sir Jaspin.

The occupants of the dinning car, car 4 are unable to hear the tussle in Car 2.

He rotates the schematic in the screen and taps the port. “Alexa access this port.”

The data pad keeps repeating those words and even the screen becomes likes if text scrolling along.

“What the hell?”
Seeing the engineer apparently too surprised to react, John internally curses as he becomes tangible and moves to yank the box from the data ports without bumping into the crewman and alerting the man to his presence. With any luck when it drops to the floor he'll assume it was just barely plugged in and somehow jarred out of place.

The engineer looks at the box on the floor and then around himself. “Hello?” After no response he picks up the box and then immediately drops is. There is a slight singe on his fingers. A small amount of smoke comes from the box.

Clicking his radio. “Steve. There’s something odd back here. Anything weird up there?”

The radio clicks back. “Nope. Everything is green.”

The engineer clicks the mic. “I’m gonna run a diagnostic, let me know if anything weird happens?”

Steve replies. “Want me to stop?”

The engineer shakes his head. “By Thor no. I want these VIPs off my train as soon as possible.”

The engineer plugs his datapad into the port and starts up a dozen diagnostics.

1d6!!+2: [4]+2 = 6


The engineer checks off one successful diagnostic. 4 more to go. He’s essentially performing a dramatic task.

@Klaus von Leibnitz
Klaus notices the hovertrain going through dozens if diagnostics and would also notice the weird Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger communication stopped.

Rubin walks off with a stack of towels. Past Gage, Leopold, and Marvin. Into car two where Sarah stands with a group of passengers helping the teenager.

Liz hands Corwin the pale with hand cleaner (think cordless hand vacuum.) “Are you trying to impress a girl into having drinks with her later?”
"Only if I'm a very fortunate son, Li..iz," a half-smile forming on Corwin's face as he turns to follow Rubin. He drops the cleaner unit into the pale and whistles a low tune as he walks.

His eyes widen, he seems to be calculating. He stands. "Thank you for your help gentlemen. I will talk to this Taxleia, I believe I saw her in the Dining Car. But first, something doesn't feel right." He pushes away from the table and stands up. He touches a sigil on his chest and says, "Protego". Runes of purple light light up covering his armor then fade away. A purple fields covers his hands and head. He makes his way to Car 2.

Corwin follows Rubin and the elf named Leopold. They both enter car two and a bit of chaos is ensuing as a fight takes place. This fight isn’t just a round of fist-i-cufs. One of the two men fights like a feral animal biting and clawing like his life depends on it. The other man simply yells for assistance.

Now that the box is unplugged and the engineer is examining the train's systems to see how they were affected John decides his next step should be to check on Sir Jaspin. Before he goes though he decides to take the opportunity to
Thievery roll 1d8!: [2] = 2 Thievery Wild Die roll 1d6!: [3] = 3 Benny spent for reroll. Thievery roll 1d8!: [3] = 3 Thievery Wild Die roll 1d6!: [1] = 1
so he could eavesdrop on his report to the pilot on his findings and generally keep tabs of what's happening on the Bridge. Unfortunately for John his subject chose that exact wrong moment to move, resulting on the bug landing on the floor. John immediately moves away from the crewman to avoid being bumped into just in case he noticed the bug drop and starts searching for its source.

Uhhh…

The feral man is hit with enough force to be obliterated. A large hole along with some accompanying (black) blood and gore fly around the car. The car goes deathly silent for a long second until it explodes in screams. People run for the far end of the car from Leopold. Some use the exit behind him but the majority are crammed at the far end as someone tries to open the locked door to the engine car.

A man from Leopold’s left yells to psych himself up, then lunges at him. “You dirty magic user. I knew one of you would snap and kill someone eventually. Raaahhh!”
Note: He clearly looks mad and frantic, not feral.

1d6: [1] = 1


Rubin is a couple steps behind Leopold. He makes a high pitched scream and throws his stack of towels at Leopold’s back. Trying to turn and run he slams into @Corwin bouncing off him and landing on his butt.

@Sarah Winters is slammed by a stampede of people climbing over her and other passengers trying to get to and through the door to the engine car. This door is securely locked and everyone just bounces around and falls onto each other.

In car three Gage and Melvin look at each. Slowly rising a wreching sound draws there attention as a passenger pukes in the aisle.

In the dinning car the Whykin guards look at each then draw thier weapons. “Mister Secretary, Sir Jaspin. There is a disturbance, we need to move to the hover car (the train doesn’t have escape pods but they have there own car in one of the cargo cars.)

Carina’s guards draw their weapons and point them to the ground since the Whykin guards aren’t point them at anyone yet. (They may be human supremacists but they are professionals.) Secretary Hines growls at Carina. “You demon’s whore, what is the meaning of this?”

Carina jerks her head at the secretary. “You limp stick idiot, I’m on the train, why would I do something?”

Hines looks like he wants to slap her into the golden age.

Alllllll of the various spooks jump to their feet and put there hands on various weapons. Even old Bob has a gun, he’s been riding this train for 5 years, back and forth to a cozy desk job at the dock office for imports from Kingsdale.

Taxleia frantically contacts @Klaus von Leibnitz. “I have to grab Carina. Do something to distract people.”

@Corwin Note: Corwin has the code to get to the engine room. Despite the assumption his armor is actually just past the door in a locked elevator that would allow him to get to the roof for combat purposes. The train is also very large meaning the armor can actually walk through it and serve as a riot suppressor incase a supernatural being was on the train and went crazy. I would suggest not using the boom gun. :) For your conveneance there is a neural mace and vibro short-sword next to the Power Armor locker/elevator.

Whatever chance the engineer had to notice the bug is interrupted by frantic pounding. The noise comes from outside this room so he goes to investigate. At the door to the passenger car he looks at the camera feed of all the people trying to get the door open.

Leopold says, "For Fu%%s sake do you all not know what orderly means?" as the menagerie of people scramble around him, including the idiot who attempted to tackle him and slams into a seat knocking himself unconscious. He, unnervingly calm, walks up to the remains of the man that he "subdued." Let's see if we can see what caused your unfortunate madness. He kneels and examines the ichor like blood, then checks his mouth and body for signs of

John takes advantage of the sudden distraction from outside to pick up his bug while the engineer is preoccupied. As he pockets the micro-transceiver he glances up at camera feed to see what the situation is. Viewing the crush of frightened people trying in vain to get in, John deduces that the most likely reason for their panic is some sort of attack. Obviously the hacking device was only one part of a larger plan. Whoever was behind it is now moving to the next stage, possibly prematurely in reaction to him unplugging their box.

In the dinning car the Whykin guards look at each then draw thier weapons. “Mister Secretary, Sir Jaspin. There is a disturbance, we need to move to the hover car (the train doesn’t have escape pods but they have there own car in one of the cargo cars.)

Carina’s guards draw their weapons and point them to the ground since the Whykin guards aren’t point them at anyone yet. (They may be human supremacists but they are professionals.) Secretary Hines growls at Carina. “You demon’s whore, what is the meaning of this?”

Carina jerks her head at the secretary. “You limp stick idiot, I’m on the train, why would I do something?”

Hines looks like he wants to slap her into the golden age.

Alllllll of the various spooks jump to their feet and put there hands on various weapons. Even old Bob has a gun, he’s been riding this train for 5 years, back and forth to a cozy desk job at the dock office for imports from Kingsdale.

Taxleia frantically contacts Klaus von Leibnitz. “I have to grab Carina. Do something to distract people.”


Just as he's finishing up the triangulation and has IDed the potential source all hell starts breaking loose. As people start to try and push into the dinning car he hears Tax calls for a distraction. With the commotion rising in the other cars he decides cutting off the chaos would be a better solution than adding to it so he moves to cut off the tides. "Ja, get the VIPs to the roof. I vill handle the door." hearing screaming about a wizard attack from the crowd he's confused but rolls with it.

Rushing to the doorway to the back cars, Klaus starts to yell, "Back vizards! You Vill Not drag me to hell!" as he fires a couple laser shot dramatically into the ceiling. he runs straight into a large human?? maybe a half ogre, right at the door and he yells frantically in the mans face. "They're in here too, quick back that vay."

While the man's reaction isn't as dramatic as he'd hoped, the man-mountain does stop moving into the dinning car and pushes the masses back a bit. Just enough for Klaus to shut the door and laser the latch a few times. Whatever is going on out there can stay out there as far as the hacker is concerned, his job was protecting these folks in here.

Turning away from the door Klaus keeps gun ready and his eyes on Red and the man with the flashy 'ware.

Leave it to the GM to decide if the notice with a raise (racial ability Vampire Awareness: True Atlanteans may Notice any vampires within line of sight) works with Sarah Impossible Tear
the crowd to try and figure out what the heck is going on.
"Get out of here! Find a safe place to hole up!" he shouts at Rubin shoving him behind himself. Then he proceeds forward.
"One side, one side. You can't get through that door anyway!" Corwin screams uselessly at the crowd while shoving his way forward to the engine room door. Covering the keypad with his body, he quickly punches the code. The second the door opens he slips through and punches the control to slam it shut.
"Do not go out there!" he says to the surprised engineer holding the datapad. "That is a mess you don't want getting in here. Listen, I'm gonna suit up just in case we need some muscle to break up this riot!" With that, he begins clambering into his suit. I'll definitely need that mace! he thinks to himself.

CAR - 2
@Sarah Winters, @John Carter, @Leopold, @Corwin

Car 2 is chaos as everyone tries to escape but unable too. The door to Car 3 (Where Gage of the Tomorrow Legion is) is jammed with people.

Near @Sarah Winters the boy who puked falls on the floor in an epileptic fit.
Oh so long ago, a few posts back. The boy was said to have puked on someone. Now that everyone is climbing all over each other she has disappeared into the mass of people. Until one of them screams. “She’s bitting me! Ahh. Get her off me!”

Across the car someone covered in the gore of the obliterated passenger starts to climb over a chair lunging for another passenger.

Near @Leopold someone else lunges at him but this person growls like a feral beast.
1d6: [5] = 5


@John Carter Finds car 2 a confusing mess. Some people are trying to eat/bite other people. A lot of screaming. Complete disregard for the 6’ personal space rule. And a digital chess board one move away from checkmate! Then he sees Leopold. John has seen him around the Kingsdale Tomorrow Legion offices and likely has a passing familiarity with him. John also knows Gage the Combat Mage is in Car 3.

@Corwin Climbs into the suit while the engineer runs to the pilots cabin.

With the door too car 3 securely shut and the panel destroyed, the dinning car (car 4 in line) is cut off from Car 3. The manual crank is the only way to open the door now.

To say all hell breaks loose is a disservice to hell. You can’t die accidentally. Laser beams crisscross the room. Who dies and who isn’t yet is hard to tell. What @Klaus von Leibnitz did see was Sir Jespin grab Carina to protect her. (He is a Cyber-Knight after all. Carina is not an adventurer. So she’s not some death machine in disguise.) They drop to the floor. In the first volley one of the Corp Guards is dead and a Whykin guard is severely wounded.

Taxleia gets low and moves to Carina.

Since Klaus is paying the most attention to Red and Mr. Perfect Hair he sees their reactions. A woman goes full Were-Panther and jumps Red. They fight each other to prove who’s Kung Fu is superior.

Perfect Hair leaps to action and is forcing his way towards the VIP table. Klaus will have an action before he reaches the table.

Sir Jespin covers Carina. “Come on young lady, looks like we’ll need to find alternate transportation.”

He tries to nudge her to the rear of the car where there is an exit to the cargo cars. It is also the closest exit.

“We have to help Henry, he’s been shot.”

Sir Jespin doesn’t change course. “I’m sorry, but I think he’s dead. He was protecting you, so don’t make his sacrifice worthless by getting yourself killed.”

“I can protect myself! Go help Henry.” A laser bolt hits the floor right i front of her and she screams, startled by the near death.

“Yeah, I gonna just make sure you get to safety first.”

Damian Crow (yes, Rift’s Mercenaries, Crow’s Commandoes, Damian Crow) looks to his partner. “Leila, stop Red, I’ll go for the target.”

His partner changes into the Were-Panther hybrid form and leaps towards the person referred to as Red.

Everyone get’s one more post. This will be a full attack action.

My next post will include initiative order. When I did PbP with other games initiative was still rather fluid and mostly important for actions against the target your attacking. If posts seem to go past your initiative, I will do what I can to make sure your action is included even if it seems like we flee by it.

(actions, however many are allowed with what is going on)

Sarah grabs the boy from the floor and quickly deposits him in a corner seat, away from being trampled. She
Psionics 1d10!!: [4] = 4 Wild 1d6!!: [1] = 1 (FA) activating Warrior's Gift (Free Runner, Martial Artist, Martial Warrior - 6 ISP)
, then
Athletics 1d8!!: [3] = 3 Wild 1d6!!: [7!!] = 7 (add +2 for Parkour)
to the woman who had been infected,
Fighting 1d10!!+2: [6]+2 = 8 Wild 1d6!!+2: [5]+2 = 7
Damage 1d12!!+1d8!!: [7]+[6] = 13 Raise damage if applicable = 1d6!!: [4] = 4 (then) FA Boost Trait (Strength, 1ISP) Psionics 1d10!!: [8] = 8 Wild 1d6!!: [10!!] = 10
without killing her, if possible.

To say all hell breaks loose is a disservice to hell. You can’t die accidentally. Laser beams crisscross the room. Who dies and who isn’t yet is hard to tell. What @Klaus von Leibnitz did see was Sir Jespin grab Carina to protect her. (He is a Cyber-Knight after all. Carina is not an adventurer. So she’s not some death machine in disguise.) They drop to the floor. In the first volley one of the Corp Guards is dead and a Whykin guard is severely wounded.

Taxleia gets low and moves to Carina.

Since Klaus is paying the most attention to Red and Mr. Perfect Hair he sees their reactions. A woman goes full Were-Panther and jumps Red. They fight each other to prove who’s Kung Fu is superior.

Perfect Hair leaps to action and is forcing his way towards the VIP table. Klaus will have an action before he reaches the table.
Shooting as Mr. Perfect hair
Modifiers: MAP -2, Called shot (go for the eyes!) -2, Cyber +2 calibrated, Cyber -2 points of penalties, Gear (Wilks) +2. Net: +2 Note: I used the wrong modifiers for the called shot, should be -4 not -2.
Shot One
Shooting d8!!+2: [4]+2 = 6 Actually 4
Shooting Wild d6!!+2: [3]+2 = 5 Actually 3
Damage 3d6!!+4: [4, 5, 5]+4 = 18
Shot Two, Same modifiers
2nd Shooting d8!!+2: [6]+2 = 8 Actually 6
2nd Shooting Wild d6!!+2: [11!!]+2 = 13 Actually 11
Damage 2 4d6!!+4: [8!!, 4, 4, 1]+4 = 21


As soon as hair-boy starts to move Klaus turns his trusty Wilks on the man. Not being sure if his target has additional hidden enhancements that might toughen him up, Klaus decides to go for a universal soft point, the eyes. His combat and targeting software kicks in, almost making things seem to move slower. His heads up data indicates the targets trajectory and speed, as well as cueing in the quickflex to impending obstructions.

Moving to the side just a bit he adjusts for flying debris and squeezes off a pair of shots. One for each orb. His aim is as true as technology can make it, the laser shots catch the man right in the face. Moving around the edge of the car he keeps as much room as he can (which is not much) between himself and at literal cat fight as he catches up to Sir Jespin and Carina. "Ve go now madam. If Henrey lives the legion do gooders vill help him. He vould not vant you to stay here."

Oh wait here it is.. He tunes into TL Coms. “Legionnaires! This is Xander Leopold, Legion AAT. Car 2 is under attack by unknown assailants. They are passengers stricken by some ailment making them feral. All Legionnaires at Car 2 doors. Seal them immediately to isolate threat. What is the status of VIPs and Engineer? Over!”
