Re: 6: Reunions
"Just securing our droid for transport!" Mits hollers out to Harry.

The armored soldier walks down the ramp carefully, watching from behind her helmet's visor for any sign of hostiles.  She's holding her rifle in a modified low ready position.

"Formerly Private First Class Mittens at your service," she reports to Harry, "High likelihood your hostiles are energy resistant.  I'll be switching to vibroblade if they get within cutting distance."

Re: 6: Reunions
Harry stops and frowns as the young boy steps out of the vehicle. He keeps frowning as he looks toward Mittens.

"Harry Selous." He speaks by way if introduction, "Energy resistant? Beautiful.  Got an extra blade?"

He turns toward the young boy, still frowning, "I guess you aughta get on board the Tracker and hang tight till we get back. Don't go in my bunk."

Re: 6: Reunions
Gurlack, six feet tall and nearly as wide, picked up the droid with little effort. He looked down the hatch, hoping there weren't spiders or pixies or something worse. He started down behind Mittens, sure to keep an eye on Maverick- predators would go straight for the poor kid, and dangit, that was not going to fly.

"Hi there, I'm Gurlack, and this is DD, Mittens, Maverick, and Dackson. I should warn you about the spiders I guess, but they're a decent enough sort when you get to know them. One of them gave me some handicrafts made of bones from their prey."

Re: 6: Reunions
  The guy in the less impressive combat jumpsuit follows along,  "Stunning the spider people lasts all of thirty seconds before it wears off."  That's a gross exaggeration, it was at least 75 seconds.

  "This is likely too much to hope for, but have you found anyone else?  The captain of the ship went down with it to give us more time."

Re: 6: Reunions
Harry rubs the bridge of his nose before replying, "our captain found somebody, but they're surrounded and trapped. The thing is, I havnt even seen any spiders. I've been worrying about the large, gorilla/dog pack predators that tried to jump us earlier."

He turned toward Roice's location, "If I could be so bold as to suggest taking your speeder to the crash site, our landing didn't go all that smoothly."

Re: 6: Reunions
OOC: Selous, you're walking on a dislocated hip.  Hobbling up and down ship ramps is one thing.  But you're not making the walk from the Tracker to the crash site on foot, even if it is relatively close by.

I recommend taking the van.

Re: 6: Reunions
OOC: Due to RL, Maverick unable to post.  So posting this for him with his permission:

Maverick just nods to Harry. The boy isn't frowning, just has a cold look about him. He looks at the others then back to Harry. Maverick is clearly not one to talk. For now, at least, he stays quiet.



"Huah!" Mittens cheers, pumping her fist, "Mittens had a feeling Cap'm Munb survived!  Sorry, I don't have a spare blade.  As for attempting a rescue among hostile monsters, might I suggest that unless your friend and Munb are in any immediate danger that we do the sane thing and we wait till the monsters wear themselves out....

"Ah who am I kidding?!  I can't wait to get started kicking this planet's tail!  Sure!  We can all go in this speeder!"

She turns to Mav.  "If you want to sit this one out, or come along, I'll understand."

  "As much as I would like to suggest Maverick stay behind with ship mounted guns between him and wildlife, I think by now we are all in agreement that splitting up more than has already happened is not a good thing."

"I, for one, vote we use the Speeder to rescue Munb, run over as many things as possible, and try to set the planet ablaze from orbit."

He glared at the environs.

"It's the only way to be sure."

Re: 6: Reunions
Decision made, Selous joins the group in the cargo speeder.

The droid in the driver's seat (a model of astromech Selous has never seen before) tootles something to itself as it closes the hatch and lifts slowly and carefully back into the torrential rain and tearing winds ripping through the canyon.

[I have a lock on the distress beacon,] the droid says to those who can translate Binary.  [With this windshear, we will take approximately 10 minutes to reach our destination.]

The speeder bucks suddenly, lurching to one side and dropping several meters before righting itself.

[Make that 12 minutes...]

"Is that Mr. Selous?" Chatterbox's voice pipes in over the speeder's comm speaker.

Re: 6: Reunions
"Hey CB, yeah it's me. There's a few folks here that, as far as I can tell, must have been on the ship Roice is at now when it crashed." Harry calls in to his comm before having a thought and turning to the people inside the speeder.

"Hey, any of you guys know anything about a twi'lek mechanic?"

"Ah," the droid brain replies, tone miffed.  "Would one of you please inform Mr. Selous that I am not speaking to him?  Thank you."

Re: 6: Reunions
Harry frowns at the ship's statement. He isn't sure what he did to bother Chatter box, but he shrugs and replies, "Suit yourself CB. I'll let you know when we save Roice and are headed back to the ship."

He couldn't be bothered with a childish computer program right now. He was wounded, outside of the ship, and surrounded by strangers and predatory animals. He had far more to occupy his time at the moment.

Re: 6: Reunions
  "Miss Agial'ili, unfortunately seems to have gone crazy and locked herself in a laboratory convinced the fate of the galaxy is involved.  We did not want to end up hurting her trying to blast our way inside with what little explosives Mittens has left, and we did not even discover speeder was stashed away the whole ******* time we were there until we promised not to bother her."  Dackson! Language!  That's highly unprofessional.

 He doesn't bring up the fact the lab is possibly haunted, or apparently used to create cannibal spider people.

Re: 6: Reunions
[I have already apologized for that, Mr. Kulname,] the astromech bleeps, a tad indignantly.  [I was under orders, and I cannot violate my programming.  Perhaps if someone had done more for the two weeks they were stuck in the facility than sleep and eat our food, they might have discovered the hangar sooner...]

This is the sassiest T1-DD has been since you met her.  It's quite possible that trying to pilot the speeder in the storm might be frazzling her circuits a trifle.

OOC: Or she's just sick of everyone's complaining. ^_-

You'll be arriving soon, so get out your exposition now.  There'll be things to shoot (yes, Selous, you finally get to shoot things) when you land. ;)

Re: 6: Reunions
Maverick looks to DD. In a soft tone, Maverick says, "It is not you who needs to apologize, DD. Don't take Dackson's anger personally."

He looks up at Harry, but since Dackson answers, Maverick doesn't need to.

Re: 6: Reunions
Mits chuckles to herself about a droid named Chatterbox threatening the silent treatment.  For being ignored.  Yeah.  That's gunna work.  Sarcasm!

"Long story," she expounds for Harry, "Suffice to say it's a sensitive topic."

To DD she smiles and says, "Mittens goes stir crazy easy.  I can assure you that every accessible inch of that ship was searched and researched several times over in our stay there by yours truely.  You did a marvelous job keeping the place maintained, by the way.  And your piloting in a tempest skills are very impressive.  So I have no doubt that you are not the object of anyone's ire.  If somehow you ever are, know that you have friends now who will defend you.  Ok, DD sweetie?

"I love this droid."

Re: 6: Reunions
Droids can't blush, but DD utters the binary equivalent of clearing her throat and resumes concentrating on flying.

After several tense, turbulent minutes of flight, the speeder finally lands again.

[We have arrived at the crash site,] DD chirps.  [I am unable to get a reading on life forms due to storm interference and residual radiation from the ship's reactor.  Nothing dangerous,] she assures the group.  [However, if you see any glowing residue, I would avoid touching, stepping on, or staring overly long at it.]

Re: 6: Reunions
"Ok, quick breif, My captain is in here with another sentient being. Last reports had them under attack by large, gorilla/dog pack predators that do not seem to like us. I am a bit injured, so it's probably safest if one of you takes point." Harry says quickly before anyone can open the doors. He was hoping this little excursion wouldn't turn in to as big of a poodoo show as some of his other adventures.

Re: 6: Reunions
"Acknowledged," Mits answers both DD and Harry.

She heads for the door and checks her rifle.  Then draws and activates her vibro-sword.  When it looks like the group is ready, she'll open the door and head out.

Meanwhile, she sings, "Gunna rescue Captain One, doo-dah.  Doo-dah.  Gunna rescue Captain Two, oh doo-dah-day.  Worth a thousand points!  Double combo bonus!  Monsters worth 100 each, oh doo-dah-day."

Re: 6: Reunions
  "You were stuck with orders anyways, DD.  I'm no stranger to doing stupid things because your employer says to."  Note to self, trying to discourage spider people from deciding to try and eat you again later was just sitting around being lazy... Of Course, that wouldn't be much of a worry for a droid anyway.

  Dackson nods to Harry,  "Well, hopefully you can hit something from here if needed." that said he follows after Mittens.

Re: 6: Reunions
Maverick smirks as Mittens sings. On one hand, he's not going to make light of the situation. On the other hand... it is nice to think positively and in a silly way if just to keep your sanity.

........even if singing about that sounds pretty crazy.

Re: 6: Reunions
Harry frowns as one of the newcomers started singing. If there was one thing he wouldn't have done while hunting, it was singing. Harry decides to wait on the vehicle, peering out of the door with his storm trooper 2 at the ready. He'd wait to see if the predators cam out to investigate the noise.
