Kynor glances at Shayock coolly.

"I'm a warrior, not a spy," he states with a hint of snootiness.

Pyrus nods.  "Noehon sstupid."

Sure they had an excuse for shooting at their future slaves, but shooting at quarry you want to take alive is just dumb in Pyrus' opinion.  One that he's happy that is shared by one of his smart new friends.  On the other hand, he's still not convinced of the smartness of leaving Buraki alive and wishes the others would hurry up and kill the man before he goes back to his usual nasty self.

"We should kill Noehon bosss.  And Burraki."

  "I'm better at seeing ambushes coming than being the ambush.  So it depends just what you have in mind." Well unless people rely on electronics of extra sensory perception.  But Blake doubt's that is where the bugs lean.

  "Pyrus, please. No murder."  It's not murder if you are applauded for it enough to get away with it, and clearly Pyrus is terrible at that part.

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
Shayock says, "Right. So it will be up to me to spy. Thankfully, that is something my people train in from childhood, so I should be OK."

She looks at Pyrus. "And before you mention you can scout from the sky, that would make you very visible and I don't want the Noehans to shoot you down with whatever laser guns they got their hands on."

Blake already covered the 'no murder', but since Shayock suspects Pyrus doesn't even know what that word means, she adds, "We only kill when we have to. Right now, Buraki is not a threat."

"Don't worry, Pyrus," Kalan says, placing a reassuring hand on the creature's head, "We won't let him harm you anymore."

Buraki, seemingly oblivious to the conversation concerning his fate, stares with interest out of the windscreen, humming to himself softly and tapping his foot to his tune.

"Firstly we should return to the safety of the facility," Calsana says, "But after that I agree it might be worth your investigating the crash, as you might have more luck than our team."

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
Pyrus doesn't really get the idea of going after the well-protected Noehon boss but not the defenseless Buraki.  But when Kalan pets him, he takes a submissive posture.

Calsana's point is a good one, though, so he chimes in to agree.  "Yes.  Safety firsst."

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
  Shayock certainly makes for a smaller target than Blake to see in the trees, but he expects she would be better at him at the whole sneaking thing if she were taller than him instead.

  Expertise vs competence, it's a hell of a thing.

  "What about you Kalan, are you bored enough to turn right around from safety and follow us on our questionable life choices?"

Shayock goes quiet, mostly pondering, but also looking expectantly at Kalan to see what his answer to Blake will be.

Kynor glances up at the mention of compensation.

"Oh? Just what sort of compensation are we talking about here?"

Pyrus watches the grownups talk, his head darting from focusing on one to another.

"Noehon boss scares the others.  Kill boss, Noehons give up!"

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
  Pyrus is learning fast, Murder that nobody important would care about is much more practical. (People able to act on righteous vengeance count as important. So many amateurs ignore this detail.)

  "It would be a waste of time and lives to show up, only to have to turn around because everyone is killed by bugs after all."

  OOC: "We call it the Maverick Rule."  "Why?"  "Ahahahah. Hah. Hah... Just don't"

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
Shayock gives Kalan a smile indicating she is quite happy about his response. "Good to hear, Kalan."

As Kynor speaks up in response to compensation, Shayock makes a mental note that money is a decent motivator for Kynor. Honestly, she didn't figure him the type, but then, money tends to be a pretty universal motive.

She idly pets Pyrus. "In most cases, you are right, Pyrus. I hope this is like most cases."

Shayock looks at Kynor, then the others. "We still need to make sure we have what we need for the task. And we need to drop off the big guy."

OOC: LOL, Blake. XD SOME day, we'll have to introduce Tim to Maverick.

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
Buraki glances about for a clue as to who the 'big guy' might be. He can't seem to spot anyone who fits the description, so he goes back to humming silently to himself.

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
Well, Kynor is a Mandalorian, after all. War and credits have kind of been their motivation for millennia. He gives a curt nod, indicating that ten thousand credits is an acceptable price for his services.

"Dragon's right," he adds in a calculating voice, "Our best bet is to kill the leader of these bugs. The rest should disperse after that."

Kalan gives Shayock a smile and a look of resolve, though the knuckles which clench the handle of his blaster are white.

Pyrus is so happy!  Shayok pets!  Friends agree with the plan!  Finally getting rid of Buraki!  Life is good.

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
  Blaster ammo may be cheap, but it doesn't pay for itself... Actually, in a way it does pay for itself. Ah, the deep philosophical questions of violent combat.

  "Do Noehon speak basic? Though I'm sure even if they don't care to, it will be worked out." Just look at Shayock's species, after all.  Language was only a barrier as long as it was funny.

  Look, if it's not YOU about to be eaten, it's funny.

Re: Chapter I: The Journey to Na'lon
Shayock pets Kalan's hand gently to try and help calm him. When Pyrus speaks up, Shayock pauses a moment before looking at Blake. "You do have a point, Blake, but Pyrus gave me an idea. If I can find a way to spread my pacification magic across their living area, we could possibly go in there with no resistance."

She looks at Kynor and says, "The spell is temporary. It will only be a matter of time before Buraki goes back to being his grumpier self. Which is why we need to make sure he will not be a threat to us once we get to our destination."
