Dust Runner Galley
Luise is the first one to arrive in the galley after Gahler's announcement. There were a lot of people on the ship right now; it was going to get crowded.

Stez's makes his way to the galley, with Beth in tow. They locate a nice out-of-the-way spot to sit and wait.

Gahler strolls in and fixes himself a cup of tea before sitting down.

Re: Dust Runner Galley
Arc was pretty useless around the ship, so when Gahler called for a meeting in the galley, it was a no-brainer to head there right away. As it was, he still wasn't first. He guessed the others had simply been closer.

He'd also noticed that they'd made the transition to jump space, meaning they'd gotten out of the system successfully. There was still no guarantee that they wouldn't be jumping into the fire. He supposed that was what the meeting was about.

"So we've jumped," he commented. "Is there any way for the Swordies to know where we went?"

He'd never paid much attention to the workings of interstellar travel as it had always been someone else's responsibility.

"It would be an easy guess as there are not many choices available." Gahler replied.

Re: Dust Runner Galley
  Walking in Roland headed for the coffee maker, poured himself a cup, and sighed as he took a sip. then Found a chair removing his helmet and loosening the catches on his chestplate to allow some degree of comfort as he sat down.

Kraig follows Steve and Roland into the galley.  He looks around and then motions toward Roland.  "This is our newest addition, Roland Steen.  He was in the escape pod."

Re: Dust Runner Galley
Along with Kraig and Roland, Randy files into the room, too.

Shortly afterward, Mara, Kara, and Jyro file in. The room is officially crowded now.

They are followed by Vermeer and Nate.

That puts 17 people in the galley... standing room only!

"So we have six days to work out what we are going to do." Gahler started, "So ideas folks."
"17 folk are going to put a drain on resources so some volunteers for low berth passage would be appreciated."

Re: Dust Runner Galley
Slides his chair to the nearest computer ...examines the star maps. Checks the last onworld communication logs, starport/navy/scout emergency comms.
OOC:Next trick question(s)...

Did the ship record any onworld comms, local news networks...etc...something to give a better idea of what's going on in the "big picture"...and Imperial ships, with broadcasts... I realize this is all a bit slow on the 8 ball thinking, but, I've sat by and watched how our "nominal leaders" dealt with things...this isn't criticism, just something to think about...

Since the Swordies made mistakes, we're not the only clever ones...and opposition wasn't wiped out immediately, there would have been transmissions, code packets...something...


Before replying to Gahler..what does he find? (Note: not sure of modifiers?)
19:23, Today: Shamus O'Donnell rolled 8 using 2d6+1 with rolls of 3,4. comms/info dump..

Re: Dust Runner Galley
Gahler shrugged at Steve's words, "Conserving resources might be a priority considering what is happening. Next system we might only be able to skim for gas. No consumerable replacements."
"Less folk breathing and eating puts less load on the systems even if this is a free trader."

Re: Dust Runner Galley
IM notes "Looking at the specs, this ship can easily handle 30 live and kicking crew and passengers. The only thing we don't know is the state of the stores. I'd say we table sticking folks in cold storage until we know the status. A full inventory is in order, right now we're just guessing."

Re: Dust Runner Galley
"We should be prudent for sure and check for stores and life support consumables.  Certainly going on somewhat reduced rations would be the first step if it's needed." He considers what he knows of the space around them.  "So where are we jumping and where should we come out; in or out system?"

"So we should probably delegate duties to do the inventory. See where this ship is currently with its stores and life support consumables."
"Volunteers?"
Gahler asked.

"That won't be necessary," the Baroness spoke up. "Unless we shot up a lot of the supplies, the ship has enough food, water, air and consumables in the cargo hold for quite a lot. I thought it was strange at the time, but figured the captain was just speculating."

"Now I realize it was to supply the pirate crew. Remember, they had over twenty men, so they had supplies for some long term running."

Re: Dust Runner Galley
Yes, my bad. I miscounted the names at the bottom here... possibly counted myself... so there are only 16 people on the ship... unless you count Schroedinger's Cat...

"So we have plenty of supplies. What do we know about the system we are jumping into?" Gahler queried.

Re: Dust Runner Galley
Kraig looked up from his hand comp as he read about the system.  "The main world looks like it was fragged with asteroids during the Ancients War.  It's habitable but covered with huge craters from the strikes.  The system is old and the planet is metal poor and the atmosphere is tainted.  Locals live on what are called Mesas and get around in hand powered dirigibles.  The Navy and Scouts have the planet interdicted to protect the natives from interference.  There is a gas giant so we could refuel there if we could scoop.  Otherwise we might plead for help from the Navy or Scouts since we are fleeing the Swordies."
