Re: 6: Reunions
"Your transmission is garbled. If you asked if we wanted you to get rid of the ape creatures than the answer is yes." Harry calls in to the comms.

Harry leans back in his seat and rubs the bridge of his nose. For all he knew the question was 'would you like us to deal with you?' Which would have been a crappy question to say yes to.

Re: 6: Reunions
"Well, I wanted to walk, but Kaara insisted on flying.  We've been all over this damn system in the past weeks looking for... anything."

He reaches into his satchel and tosses the Sullistan a medpack.  "Glad we finally found something.  What's the story?"

Re: 6: Reunions
"Heh," Munb chuckles as he cracks open the medkit and grabs some painkillers.  "We were onna water run, you probably know the details from Kaara, yes?  I got cocky, thought I'd try to pull a Gambit and get rid of some competition.  Outta nowhere, a full-blown ISD shows up an' starts shootin'!  We barely made it outta there in one piece.  I tried ta get us to a safe world, but m' jump was off--I was havin' a bad day--an' we popped out here, hundreds of lightyears off course, middle of nowhere.  Didn't know it at the time, but the lateral power couplin's were ready ta blow.  Gettin' yanked outta hyperspace by 'dis place's mass shadow was too much for 'em.  Power system blew an' it was all I could do to get the ship down in relatively few pieces.  Had 'da others hit the lifepods while I rode 'er down to the ground.  I'm honestly surprised I survived!

"Aftah that, I just tried to survive.  Took me weeks ta get enough wiring patched ta get 'da comms working.  Woulda been fastah, but," he gestures towards the door, "'Dey've been stalkin' me since almost the day I crashed.  Damn monstahs!  Luckily, 'dey're nocturnal.  'Dey avoid bright lights.  Or, at least 'dey did.  Damn smart creatures stopped bein' scared of my spotlight after a few days.  'Dey actually figured out to go where the light was, because that's where I was.  So, nighttime, I lock 'da door an' wait for 'dem to leave." The injured Sullustan blows an exasperated sigh, "I t'ink 'dey're playin' a game wit' me at 'dis point..."

He visibly relaxes as the painkillers start to take effect.  "'Da others?" he asks.  "Ya foun' 'dem yet?  Heard anything?  I noticed another transponder signal 'day matched my beacon, figgered it was 'dem."

Roice shakes his head.  "We pinged it, but the weather was bad, and it was safer to put down here first.  Does the wind ever let up?"

Re: 6: Reunions
Captain Munb shakes his head, "Not 'dat I've seen.  Planet's a hellhole, Delfinn.  Nuthin' but bad weather and bad attitudes.  No wonder nobody lives here."

There's a loud thud and scratching sound against the hatch.

"Go suck onna Hutt, ya sleemo!" Munb shouts, which elicits a series of frenzied scratching and snarling that lasts for almost a minute before the creature on the other side gives up again.

"One time one 'a 'dem damn monsters actually slept against the hatch.  Almost voided my tanks when I opened it in 'da mornin' and stepped right on 'im.  Damn monsters..."

Re: 6: Reunions
Selous: Despite the storm's best attempt to interfere with the reply from the inbound vehicle, you get two things: 1) They agree that yes, their aim is to help, and b) Chatterbox apparently would like to be repaired.

Re: 6: Reunions
"Thank you very much." Harry says in to the comm before leaning back in his chair.

"Of course you'd like to be repaired chatterbox." He says aloud, "but it's not as if we can really do that at the moment."

"What was that about a repair?" Q7 asks, sticking his beaky face into the bridge.  "I was just coming up to ask if you were noticing any system irregularities.  Did you find something?"

Re: 6: Reunions
Harry turned to Q7, "Yeah, chatterbox wants to talk again. Is that a problem that doesn't require you to leave the ship or buy new parts?" He asks the droid.

Re: 6: Reunions
Selous: That incoming vehicle is getting pretty close now.  Are you going to let them land or start shooting?  Might want to let them know.  Maybe hitch a ride?

"It has been kinda quiet around here lately, hasn't it?  I've been so busy patching up all the stuff blown out by the lightning strike that I kinda forgot about CB.  Oh man, he's gonna be mad!"

It's hard to tell due to the fairly flat tone of the battle droid's vocoder if Q7 sounds concerned or is gloating.

"I'll go down to the engine room and run some diagnostics.  Could take a while.  Hours, or even days..."

Gloating.  He's definitely gloating.

Re: 6: Reunions
"Do what you can." Harry says, standing from his chair. Once again he began hobbling toward the cargo hold. He'd need to chain up chomper if they were having guests.

"Land your ship close to ours if you can manage. I've got no clue how many of those creatures are out there, and the less time we expose ourselves the better." He calls in to the comm to the other ship.

Harry paused at the ladder to the turret that Zone was supposed to be in. "There's a ship incoming. Let it land and wait for my signal in case we need to blast it."

Re: 6: Reunions
"Alright, well, gather your..."  He looks around the ragged room.  "...Gear, and we'll arrange some sort of distraction to give us a minute to make it to the ship."

He toggles his radio and transmits to Harry.  "Hey Deck, how's the weather?  I've got a survivor in here."

Re: 6: Reunions
Harry switches comm channels and replies to Roice, "the incoming vessel seems to want to help. I've got no clue who they are, but were just waiting for them to land so I can get more details about the plan. Zone is in the turret, so if it's that bounty hunter or Imps than we'll deal with it."

Re: 6: Reunions
The speeder slowly approaches the parked Tracker, coming to land a short distance away.  There's no outward sign that anyone inside is intending anything hostile.  The cargo speeder doesn't even have any visible external weaponry.

Re: 6: Reunions
Harry checks to make sure Chomper is locked securely in his bunk. Once that was done, he commed the unknown vehicle outside.

"Hey speeder, you got any idea if the immediate area outside is safe? I'd hate to step out to talk and get eaten by those nasty predators." He said, hoping the interference would be cut down a bit now that the speeder was so close to him.

   Dackson shares  Harry's hopes, if not their optimism. "Well, it looks safe.  But so far that has meant the dangerous stuff is just waiting for you.  I'm expecting those creatures you mentioned to show up once we are halfway to the ship."

Re: 6: Reunions
"As long as we can open and shut the hatch to this ship before that." Harry replies on the comm.

"Karaa, I'm going out! Come close the door behind me!" He shouts up in to the ship as he makes his way to the ramp, grabbing two thermal detonators, Bola's pistol, and one of the Storm Trooper 2 rifles. He had a feeling his new sniper wouldn't be much good to him on this planet.

Gurlack continued sleeping, covering his earhole with an arm and grumbling. He yawned, sitting up and stretching a bit.

"Hm. Some storm, eh?"

Re: 6: Reunions
Maverick just got ready to bolt. He's in no mood to fight monsters unless they can actually die. Should he find out Harry has thermals, the man may become a new close friend of Maverick's.

Re: 6: Reunions
The ramp on the YV-100 lowers, floodlights kicking on to illuminate the underside of the ship and streak out into the pouring rain beyond.

A scruffy-looking human comes limping down as the ramp descends, by the grimace on his face and the way he's moving, it's clear that one of his legs pains him, badly.

[Shall I open the outer hatch?] DD chirps, her manipulator moving to hover over the door control.

OOC: Heh.  Selous is "scruffy looking"... ;D

Harry limps toward the vehicle, Bola's blaster at the ready in case any of those creatures decided to take the chance and jump him while he was exposed.

"Absolutely, DD!" Mits says, "Let's not dally!  Dangerous storm and monsters about.  Gurlack if you would be so kind as to carry DD when the door opens, please.  I'm expecting the terrain to be astromech unfriendly."

Re: 6: Reunions
The cargo speeder's back hatch lowers, the light from inside streaking out to mingle with the Tracker's floodlights.

Several figures shift around inside, but no shots fired.

Yet.

Re: 6: Reunions
Maverick's readied action activates! Well OK, so he thought better of running outside because he heard the rescuers are trigger happy. He simply walks down to Harry, looking up at him once they are closer. The boy can't be any older than 10. He is currently wearing a cloak to cover himself entirely. Well, except his face.
