100/1105

After mustering out of your respective services, you find yourselves in the Sword Worlds subsector on Flammarion on the Highport looking for work. During your time on Flammarion doing odd jobs and basically enjoying the highlife you meet each other in the various pubs and bars and other nightlife areas. After a weeks of getting to know each other you all begin to realize that at this pace you will have spent all your mustering out benefits with nothing to show for it. Unfortunately, none of you has a ship, which is the key to making real money.

Do Travellers Dream of Electric Sheep?

The Characters are slowly coming to the realization that all is not what it seemed to be on Walston. As they slowly revive from their waking dream (?), they are coming to the realization that not only all is not well, but where are they, and why are they here?

Note: sorry for the long gap, I was debating with myself as to whether I was capable to run this game, and I decided that I’m going to give it my best, and with everyone’s help make it a success, so here we go!

I’m also going to recruit more players via Citizens of the Imperium, so with any luck, you’ll have a full crew, so I can reduce the amount of PC NPC’s.

A Dream within a Dream?

System Inbound
The questions the crew have slowly begin to fall into place..or do they?

As the crew looks over the records, they see that the Maverick, following her initial route into the system, had been plying back and forth along the two adjoining sectors for what seems like the past 20+ years, with interspersed maintenance over that period.

Further digging does turn up crew logs. It seems like there have been 4 crews, averaging about 1 crew every 5 years. It also shows that the ship looks like it is owned by a blind trust, based in Regina sector, and the crew has broad discretion in selecting cargoes, destinations and charters, provided only that basic financial and contract obligations were met.

As the crew brews coffee and discusses the beginning finds, Ravn begins to slowly come to a realization. As he looks back to his conversations, he remembers that once he was shuttled to Maverick, he was told that he would be put under, similar to the rest of the crew, but only for “a few weeks at best”, in order for them to calibrate the system used to create the simulations.

He know understands that he has been in a waking dream for the past 24 years.

Jason and Magnus locate the Maverick’s position, as more systems come on line. She is currently in Aramis system, in a wide parabolic orbit out near the last planet in the system. He orbit takes her near, and in some cases into an asteroid field, which nav states she will be entering withing the next hour.

Also, the onboard computer corrects the current date and time, now that it can take bearings from a system beacon.

The current date is 361-1129. At 1G, you should reach Aramis in 4 days, 22 hours. At 2 G, you will reach her in 3 days, 11 hours. Your current stores on ship will exhaust in 5 days.

Enter: Hallis Mir


The crew wants answers, so now they turn to their former crewmate.

Hallis walks over to the coffee maker, laughing to himself that after all these years, The “old fashioned” way of brewing coffee beans is still the best. After pouring himself, Magnus, and Lauren a mug, he settles into the high backed couch, moving not as nimbly as you recall, but more of with a steady surefootedness.

Hallis begins: “Before we start getting into who has questions for whom, Can someone explain two things..First:”

“Why did I age, but all of you look like when we first met?”

“And secondly,” Hallis takes a long draw of his coffee. “Why does the Doctor have a pistol trained on me??”

*Good Meal at _The Oasis_!*
Tired of looking at that "Hallis MIr" photo!

Wow, we sure are enjoying some good food, brew, and conversation here at The Oasis tonight! In addition to the house special spar-hen burritos, we have a huge salad with mysterious greens of unknown origin, black olives, green olives, tomatoes soaked overnight in olive oil, and mounds of great grated cheese! Plus there is this stuff with an Old Terran sounding name that Hallis Mir Senior ordered, that looks like mushrooms on top of a chunk of ground beef, but the name had “legumes” in it which suggests other ingredients like clover, peanuts, or beans. Yumm, Yumm!
