|2034-03-04 0800LT After Action Debrief ||King Henry's avatar was remarkably clear and responsive. He sat at the head of the large table, working through a traditional English breakfast while chatting quietly with the Duchess and the Queen, who sat to either side. The room was filled with many quiet conversations. Some small groups disc |
|2034-03-01 1200LT Scary-Man Homecoming ||Most of the day was spent figuring out how the mission went so well.
Note - Kevin was not talking to the real leader.
Dex negotiates a real job.
Syd contacts Brad / JakJak for help.
|2034-02-28 2300LT The Returning Heroes ||Syd and Dex refused to leave the Warren with the others. Their deep infiltration into the social network of the Warren had them very cofident that they cuold dive deep into the details of the enemy operations while maintaining an airtight cover. Over the next ten hours they came to r |
|2034-02-28 1800LT A Visit To The Jade Rabbit Warren ||Rebecca braced herself for the increasing gravity as the APC was pushed down the linear accelerator. The last time she's ridden one was a few years ago, and it had been unpleasant, to say the least.
"This launch will be a civilian Gs, ma'am," Dale said. "You will feel it, but it won't even be u |
|2034-02-28 1330LT Kevin Is Impressive ||Dale knew he didn't like or trust Kevin before. This cemented his opinion. "Get into position," he barked. Dex, Syd, and Rebecca were clearly confused about what was happening, and were ignoring the glowing lines arcing over to a large concrete building. He turned toward them to reit |
|2034-02-28 1300LT Kevin Is Impressed ||Kevin couldn't remember the last time he's had this much fun. TALOS was 100% fucking awesome.
"Listen Corporal," he said, cutting off the large man with a sharp gesture. "This isn't my first ride. I know you have a schedule to keep. Right now? It waits." He pointed his heavily armoured arm |
|2034-02-28 1115LT Suit Up ||Corporal Lisa Sinclair introduced herself to Rebecca as "the 'SET' who will get you suited up." As a veteran of costumes and costume changes, Rebecca didn't bat an eye when step one was to get naked. As a madam she kept her composure when the next step was a |
|2034-02-28 1100LT Signs Point To China ||Seismologists from Boeing quickly determined that there is a large tunnel leading out of the base. It terminates under the South East corner of the Al/O2 plant. It goes South. The only other structure on the moon is the Chinese base at the South Pole.
Kevin racked his mind for where |
|2034-02-28 0920LT Emergency Community Support ||About 100 people donned EVA Work Suits or Civilian Armour and rushed to the scene. There were few serious injuries. Heat and radiation burns were most common, along with lace problems from the EMP. Dex and Syd were both a bit addled by the magnetic field used to contain the plasma. [ |
|2034-02-28 0915LT GTFO it's gonna blow ||The plasma weapon that fired off emanated from below the house. It blasted a hole upwards into the roof at the edge of the biodome, excavating almost 100m of concrete and rock. The top of the biodome is over 500m down, so the chance of loss of pressure was remote. Still, emergency procedures were tr |
|2034-02-27 0800LT Called in for questioning ||Author’s Note: These narratives are mostly character development, not finished narratives for the books.
“Good morning, Mr. Willam,” Dale said. The faceplate on his armour was fully transparent to the well dressed man sitting across from him in the interrogation |
|2034-02-26 1530LT I just breathed human remains ||Earlier, Mycroft informed Syd that Brian and Phil were both missing for over an hour, but that he was not allowed to investigate their disappearance until they were off the network for three hours. That would be 1700LT.
Syd asked Kevin to help figure out why the Vault was full of gr |
|2034-02-26 1000LT Spearfishing ||A melodious tone drew Rebecca’s attention to her left. Shauna’s AR projection was standing two metres away, seamlessly integrated into the environment at Umbra. She was panicking while she waited for Rebecca to answer. Rebecca could understand that: Shauna appeared to be covered |
|2034-02-26 0930LT After Breakfast Realizations ||The three of them compare notes on the events of the past night.
Rebecca raises the concern that Dexter "saw through Syd's disguise" and then asked probing questions about what was going on. She believes she got him to back off.
Kevin is not so sure. He thinks Dexter must be a spy, planted at Umbr
|2034-02-26 0900LT Breakfast planning ||Kevin woke from a surprisingly good night's sleep. The bed was large and just the right firmness. The covers were heavy enough to feel like a hug, and the air was perfectly cool. He completed his morning ablutions quickly. His AR informed him that Rebecca was on her way to a large, buffet style |
|2034-02-25 1730LT This is how you stealth ||“Follow me,” Syd said, still wearing Kevin’s form. His lace picked up his desire to go to the big private room, and taking partial control of his body, started walking to the passageway through the aquarium. They were all still in the privacy field, so they couldn’t see anything around them. |
|2034-02-25 1710LT Containment is Attempted ||“I don’t get it,” Syd said. The lace-enforced calm left his voice flat. “What’s the problem with Kevin Cahn knowing Rebecca Blackburn?”
Kevin noted Syd’s unnatural stillness, and his alert but emotionless expression. It was creepy. He considered how much to tell them about his h |
|2034-02-25 1700LT What are YOU doing here ||Rebecca saw Shauna sitting on a bench as she approached Umbra. Aun hopped up as she pushed her bike into a rack, and air kissed her boss on both sides. “It’s been a while since you had a double-Umbra day, isn’t it?” Her voice was low and rich, somewhat at odds with her short lean fra |
|2034-02-25 1500LT Rebecca has a concern ||Rebecca carefully concealed her anxiety and anger as she pedalled lightly down the broad, open-air cobbled road beside the Henry River. She was on her way to Syd’s bar, Umbra, from her bordello in the South side entertainment district, not far from her theatre complex. Riding in one |
