Augsust looked very displeased. There was no way they'd be able to get Angel to the ship. He'd just have to meet up with Shadai and they'd have to figure out a way to get those two on the ship at a later point. As for Ayla: he knew his XO had been following him closely, so she couldn't be far off. He stared into the smoke, but couldn't see her. He was certain she was close, though. "Keep your eyes, open for Ayla, Ronon. We pick her up and then we leave." He checked his pistol again and aimed it. Not at anyone in particular, but when a merc would show up in his vision, he'd have to act fast.

Ryan inspected the red beauty from the outside. "She sure does" he said, agreeing with Mark. "I'm driving?" he asked, happily surprised. Then he walked over to the ramp and pushed the button to lower it. As the cargo bay slowly opened up, he got back to Sophie and sat himself behind the wheel. He started the car and gently drove Sophie up to the ramp, which still wasn't opened up all the way. He looked out and got his first glimp ever of Jaingjyn (OOC: What does he see?).

Ronon had seen this, even though he was hurting, he had the gun from the merc he booted out, the aims and yells

" CAPTAIN !! "

Ronon's shot was precise, a third eye appeared in the mercs head, she slumps down, dead there is another bang as the first merc is dealt with

Ronon checked his arm, not good, Ayla was struggling with the hair puller, Ronon could not get a clear shot , the buildings were getting closer time was running out for the captain and Ayla, Ronon was bleeding but still chugging, he tries to find a clear shot to help Ayla

Ronon Dex

August heard a gun shot and then found himself covered in blood and possibly some other parts that were normally stored inside a human body. A second later the dead body of the merc dropped on top of him. He realized what had happened and immediately pushed the body away, wiped his eyes clean as best as he could - his hands were now covered in blood as well - got up and ran the final few yards to the cargo bay of his ship. Without any help he managed to enter it. "Who do we have on board?" he asked Ronon, who he had spotted. He hoped that he and Ayla would be the last ones to get here, so that they would at least have a complete crew - apart from Shadai of course - when they left.

Ayla felt like her head was splitting as the merc grabbed a handful of her hair and pulled. Whatever the other woman was trying to do was quite possibly working as she was jerked towards the merc. But what she really feared at the moment was being over-powered by the two woman. She let herself fall into the one pulling her hair, hoping that would distract the merc long enough for her to scramble free and get her gun sighted on one of the two woman. But as she fell, Ayla saw the one woman become less of a threat, by way of someone's bullet. She put all her weight, and the momentum that came with it into knocking the other merc free from her hold on Ayla's hair.

Ayla

Her plan actually worked. Ayla and the merc both fell down hard, but the merc had let go of her hair. Ayla now had to choose whether she would pull out her weapon to try and kill the merc who seemed to be grabbing for something at her waist, or if she would get up and make a run to get to the Odyssey as quickly as possible.

---TIMELINE CUT---

Ryan entered the cargo bay, dressed in his coveralls and a cap. Not knowing what the weather would be like, he was also wearing a jacket. While waiting for Mark to arrive, he called up the list of parts they would need to fix up the ship on his Cortex unit and went over them once more.

Ryan hadn't been aware before that he had been gripping the safety bar in front of the main screen in the engine room tightly. But now that they had landed safely, he noticed his iron grip. He let go and then realized that his burnt hand felt a lot better. The skin was still a bit tight, but other than that things felt fine.

Ryan quickly went over all the things he needed to take with him, which were basically the list of parts he'd need and his weapon. He did manage to quickly wipe his face with a piece of cloth, put on a jacket over his coveralls and put on a cap. While gathering all this he realized that he had no idea what the climate and weather were like outside. He could look it up, but doubted he had the time. Instead, he also grabbed his sunglasses and then headed to the cargo bay, where no doubt the captain would be expecting him.

A very exciting time for us TLJ fans: Dreamfall Chapters, chapter 1 is here! No doubt we will be playing (or have already played) this game soon and apart from the game itself I am also very curious to find out what I can do with our story here to make it fit in even better. I won't of course be introducing any major characters like Zoë into our game directly as an NPC, but I do want to have the events in DFC and in our sim to be connected somehow, without interfering with the story of DFC itself.

Anyway, fun times!

August had never been the sentimental type and wasn't about to start now, but he did feel a pang of guilt at leaving Shadai behind. It soon passed, especially since another merc had shown up a few feet in front of him with the plan of stopping him right there, when the shilouette of his ship's cargo bay was finally presenting itself. The man was too close for August to draw his weapon, or even to stop running. So instead he dove forward, right into the man's gut. Or at least that had been the plan. From his right, another merc dove into August right before he managed to dive into the other merc standing in front of him. August and the other merc rolled accross the ground and when both came to a stop, the dazed captain found himself laying on the ground with the second merc sitting on top of him, holding a gun to his head. "End of the line for you", she said as she made ready to pull the trigger.

From his chief console in the engine room, Ryan could follow what was going on; he noticed that Poppy was doing a fine job of slowly turning down the grav spinner while getting closer to the planet surface. Things seemed to go smoothly.

Before Bruno could even answer, the man had hung up the phone. And that posed kind of a problem, since Bruno could hardly leave the bar behind unattended. He also really didn't want to pull some hair of Petersen's dog, but apparently the Major was now assuming that he in fact would show up. Since Bruno also didn't want to have complaints about him reach his superiors' ears, he decided to phone one of his colleagues to take over bar duties for the moment, so that he could head to cabin 324 himself. He was very tempted to send his colleague to the cabin, but somehow felt that the Major wouldn't appreciate that. Bruno always made sure that he gave some extra attention to the more wealthy people on board, since they were the ones who tended to hand out bigger tips. However, that also meant that chores like these might come along.

He dialed the number of his colleague's cabin and waited impatiently for a reply from the other end of the line.

The man shouted out in pain and grabbed the knife in his chest with his one free hand. Right before Ronon jumped him, he had managed to pull it out. Lucky for him the wound wasn't that deep, although blood immediately started flowing from it.

Ronon landed hard on the bald man, tumbling him over, but not throwing him from the ramp. With his own knife in his one hand and Ronon's in the other, there was little the man could do besides using on of these weapons. He slashed with both arms. Ronon's knife flashed right in front of the roped man's face. Then one of his dreadlocks fell to the ground. That had been a very close call. However, the other knife had made actual contact: right across Ronon's lower left arm was a large slash. Since the knife was very sharp, he hadn't felt it right away, but now a burning sensation was surfacing. The blad man brought both knifes up again, preparing to stab both weapons in Ronon's abdomen.

Meanwhile, two other mercs were trying to climb into the cargo bay; the first had climbed up the ramp and was now helping the second one aboard.

I have thought about it, and I would be willing to step us as GM for this sim, because I think we have a very interesting sim going on here and it would be a shame to have it shut down. Having said that, I would need help getting installed, so I'd need background information on all of the characters (playable ones and NPC's) and all the information that there is about the current storyline.

I think the best moment for me to step in is when we have an account of all players, so I'm not planning on taking over now. I know this sim has fallen silent for quite some time, but if I'd step in right now, I wouldn't know where to begin with pushing the story forward and I'm sure the story would suffer from it.

But if all of you are okay with me stepping up as GM eventually and if anybody has any additional info to share with me in that capacity, I'd be very grateful.

Ryan watched the captain leave and then heaved a loud sigh. No doubt he were to come along on this shopping mission. After what Mark had just said, Ryan reminded himself to take his weapon with him. He wondered if they'd be taking Sophie to town and who'd drive it. With him becoming chief engineer, he was no longer the designated driver. He missed that, sometimes.

Nico couldn't help but smile. "Maaike, good to see you!" He noticed the paper bag. "Already done some shopping, I see?" The girl looked very confident. Not at all like someone who'd been asked by the boss of the company that she worked and hardly knew to help him with a strange request. And in his vacation home for that matter. For a brief moment Nico wondered if that kind of behavior wasn't dangerous, but he suspected that Maaike could take care of herself. "Just show me where you parked", he told her.

As soon as the grav spinner started working again, Ryan could feel himself attach to the floor of the engine room. At the same time he could feel the contents of his stomach settling on the bottom of that organ again. It wasn't a very pleasant sensation, but the chief engineer did manage to keep it down. The nausea disappeared after a few seconds.

Ryan looked at Mark: "This is all I can give you with what I have. I have given you the list with parts we need, although you should update the components you want for the grav system, since you said you wanted to upgrade to ss capacitors. So, if we don't run into any more trouble, the ship should hold up nicely until we can land for repairs." He turned around to make sure all his tools were packed again, but then suddenly remembered something. "One other thing: remember that the grav system also won't compensate when we land: I have to shut it down manually when we reach the planet, otherwise we'll have the planet's gravity and the ship's artificial gravity added to one another." Ryan hadn't liked zero gravity, but he was pretty sure he'd like 1.5 G even less.

Bruno certainly would have liked to hear more about that and for a moment wondered about a career change, but then he heard the phone. He gave a loud sigh and rolled his eyes, mostly for the show. "Please excuse me", he said and then made his way back to his place behind the bar, where he took the call. "Sapphire Bar, this is Bruno Kaiser speaking."

Whether it was good luck or bad luck, depended on who you would ask. Fact of the matter was that the back end of the spear had somehow found the guard's right eye and had made a mess of it. The guard screamed in agony as he tried to keep in the goo that had been his eye. He didn't appear to be mortally wounded, but he probably wouldn't be putting up a fight anymore.

The group was making a lot of noise and it probably only would be a matter of time before more Azadi would come.

What was an advantage first, now could soon provide a problem to Ronon: the merc had freedom of movement, whereas Ronon was still connected to the rope, limiting his movements. As the merc got up from the floor, wiping the blood from his burst lip, he seemed to notice this. The bald men made a few fake charges at Ronon, judging the length of the rope and making sure he never got close enough to get hit again. Although he had the advantage in movement freedom, he couldn't reach for his weapon. Just like Ronon's, that had fallen from the ship. That however didn't stop him from pulling out a knife. He smiled and then slowly advanced on Ronon, still aware of the length of the rope the large man was tied to. "I'm gonna gut you good!" he shouted.

Cameron crouched down to avoid being hit by Karen, then she tried to prevent the second guard to retrieve his weapon, grabbing the spear pole with all her strength.


~Cameron

That was clearly a move the guard hadn't expected: Suddenly Cameron found herself holding the spear all by herself. Yes, it was turned the wrong way around, but the guard, surprised by Cameron's sudden action, was no longer holding it.
