Topic: Sightings and Location (Pinned)

Ratboy_AF: Can confirm at least two on Locus. Flash concert near the Amoeba, spinward from the body bank. Check my feed for XP, just remember to toss me some rep. <link>
Genzo: No way… who?
Ratboy_AF: Etoile from Guerre Rogue and Aurora Gorealis. AG’s got some weird morph…
Illaria.Bee: What are those two doing? My muse tells me they haven’t performed together before. New crossover stuff?
Genzo: I hope not. I hate it when singers get all political. I hear enough of that crap from my terraform-wallah dad.
Ratboy_AF: After the show, they hung around for a bit and then went to Xu’s greenhouse. AG posted something about a Swedish onion or something? Not really sure, but you know how she is.
Illaria.Bee: Oh, for the love of…
Ratboy_AF: But that’s where I lost track. I heard they were going to Casa Arturo, but no luck there when I pinged a friend. Said they took their ship and burned out Beltward

Eclipse Phase – Idol Glory (Part 1)

<Excerpt from I-Chat, Private Channel: Interproxy Discussions, Miscellaneous>

Kanawa: They calling it FW-48? FW?
j0benz: I mean, strictly speaking, there are an almost limitless combination of things that acronym could mean. Even if you restrict yourself to those languages that use the Greek alphabet, ignoring other languages’ uses of the “fuh” and “wuh” phonemes- 
Kanawa: I get it, but don’t you think that’s cutting it a little close? Especially since they’re all field operatives? Percussive: It’s worked out so far. Fame covers a multitude of sins.
Deep_Moss_Green: Someone’s eventually going to cotton to the fact that these folks tend to show up in just the right places at just the right times. Especially if we have any “repeat customers” with any sort of opposition research.
Percussive: That’s a fair consideration, I’ll allow.
MMing: I have a meeting with two of them in an hour – re: Operation PANTHEON RAINFOREST. Just some nosing around after a missing Crow, and they’re already in the theater. I’ll let you all know how it goes.

Legend of the Five Rings – Masterpiece: Iron Crane Chef (Part 2)

The yoriki get to work straight away, with their plans to salvage Kakita Yoshitaka’s meal expected to take up the entire night and most of the next morning. Sailors have to be paid, noodles need to be sourced. And who would have a bottle of the famous Daidoji Umeshu available at this unforunate hour at a reasonable price? On the one hand, success means the favor of the powerful Lady Doji Mika and the fulfillment of their mission, but failure may mean becoming victims seven through twelve of Seppun Takashi’s brutal need for obeisance.

Legend of the Five Rings – Masterpiece: Iron Crane Chef (Part 1)

The Crane city of Mura Sabishii Toshi is once again a seat of growing prosperity after being ravaged in a Crab/Crane border conflict. It’s governess is an important figure, whose opinion carries a lot of weight even in the courts of the Capital, and her favor is desired by the Emerald Bureaucracy.

It should have been a simple, even boring social visit, but an impossible-to-please noble and a ruined meal put Magistrate Torokai’s assembled team in a much more interesting position, with surprisingly high stakes.

Note from the GM: These one-shots are being posted slightly out of order, there’s no direct causal relationship between any of them, but the previous one is mentioned in the intro. Continue reading »

Nunna dem humies gon’ scrap wit’ us, wen we ridin’ in dis. No maskboyz, none dem flyin’ gits wot got wingz. Dey too caught up killin’ each ovva. Makes Ed wish he kinda didn’t have it.

Kinda.

Oi! Wot’s dat bangin’ on I ‘ear? Humiez on da roof? Gon’ be a good ‘un after all. A rite scrap!

– ‘Edrecka Da Grot-Minda, five seconds before the Severan assault began.

All allies have been called in. All available wargear and manpower put to its best use. The Aetherian Rex auxilliary squad rides into battle, flanked by their ship-mate’s gunships. They are the Dominate’s last and only hope to maintain presence on Hervara. Without the planet’s metals, Duke Severus’ dream of independence from the Imperium will be strangled to death by lack of raw materials before it even gets to draw breath.

Ordinatus Ullator must be destroyed, or taken for the Dominate. No other outcome is acceptable, no matter how unlikely.
