"Look out!"Erwin Estiban cries out, throwing himself into your side a moment before his body is wracked by lasgun fire, his humble but professional choice of clothing offering no protection as his flesh boils and burns. You recall an argument from long ago, two of the armsmen in your squad debating if las weapons caused flesh to boil and explode or simply seared it into vapor; you reckon they were both right. Even as poor E's body falls upon the cold deck, Morix's voice echos along the metallic bulkheads.In a moment her men are moving past, escorting an aged couple and a younger man past as Morix offers you a hand up. "You could come with me, Percius. He'd vouch for you, too. No need to explain why you let me go, no more worrying when the Navy will catch up with us and put us all to the sword." The faces of her family linger in your mind, your own sisters suddenly moving with them. The edges of Aquila tattoos peek up from the collars of the armsmen protecting them remind you of Gerard, and soon his face is among their number.The look of rejection upon Morix's face confuses you, her head turning away to hide the scar that now dominates the left side of her face. Your eyes drift down to poor Erwin as she tells you that someone else will be disappointed, they liked you. One of her men, a face from your previous visit to her ship, asks if he should end your life; No, killing a friend is bad luck. Get out, a bomb left behind them. Who did she say will be disappointed?
>>29237262Erwin throws himself into your side, his face contorted into a silent shout even before his chest is struck, showering you in his blood. Her face turns toward you, Alica's eyes begging you to save her, even as you let her killers walk past. The world trembles as you stare at the blood covering you, the warmth of it quickly fading to the chill of death. Only a single drop of warm remains, slowly rolling down your face as the sounds of lasguns fade, the voice of an armsman asking if he should kill you slowly returning as he looks to Morix... "Captain?""Captain!?""Percius!"Your vision fills with a blinding field of crackling white, a hand forcefully gripping you by the jaw and turning you toward a voice. For the first time in what feels like ages, your lungs fill with air and your vision focuses upon your XO, Elise Eberhardt, her eyes studying you with an in-concealable amount of worry. Something warm tingles as it languidly flows across your cheek, and you numbly run a finger below your eye to wipe at it. The substance contrasts sharply with the coating of E's dried blood that lingers upon your hands...>What is the substance?[ ] A tear. Shit, am I crying?[ ] Fresh blood.

>>29237359A streak of clear fluid is slowly absorbed by the blood upon your hand, your vision fixating upon it for a moment. "Captain, are... you crying?"Elise frowns, her grasp upon your jaw loosening. "Captain, we're underway to intercept Captain Morix's vessel, as per your orders. Kihomi believes we'll be able to intercept them at least an hour before they're able to make a warp jump. We've heard her men planted explosive charges upon Lord Wilson's ship... Is any of that blood yours, Percius?""No, its... not mine." Alica's face flashes in your mind, her face contorted like E's. You shiver at the thought."You should get cleaned up, Percius. If your sisters see you like this..."Recent events flood back, feeling almost as if they've been driven into your chest. Erwin's death; Morix's betrayal; Her reasons, family and maybe redemption; Your own betrayal, letting Erwin's killers simply walk past before his blood was cold; Morix's offer: Come with her, leave the wolfpack. Would your crew even follow you upon such a gambit? Let you betray the wolfpack? Emperor help you.>Orders?

>>29240322Elise offers you an expression that almost seems alien upon her features before she assertively assists you toward your feet. In what seems like a blur, you find yourself enjoying the warmth of heated water cascading upon your flesh, Erwin's blood washing away slowly and in some spots requiring quite a bit of effort to remove. Something about the fact that you know his essence will be reprocessed by the ship is both comforting and horrific to your mind. The way it spirals around the drain at your feet is almost hypnotic, but it buys you time to think... until the water runs cold.>Orders?[ ] Skip to intercept, sabotage interception?[ ] Skip to intercept, Other?[ ] Convince XO to not intercept?[ ] Convince Helmswoman to not intercept?[ ] Other?

With the water cold, you quickly set about donning a clean set of clothes and locating Elise. Fortunately, your XO is standing outside your quarters with Ana and Tes, the three women casting worried glances your way. Ana is the first to speak up, true to what you've come to expect of her. "You alright, Captain?""Fine. Miss Eberhardt, if I might have a word in private?" Your quarters are the obvious choice, and you simply gesture to invite her in. Tes seems to stop herself from making a comment, her posture slackening like a child being chastised."We'll keep your sisters out, but I can't promise I won't have to shoot the hyper one in the leg" smiles Ana, even after you reflexively scowl. As the door closes, you catch the beginnings of Tes giving her fellow armswoman one of her steadily more infamous lectures.Elise studies you in silence as you attempt to collect your thoughts, then begin to recall the details of your journey aboard Lord Wilson's vessel. Going to look for Captain Morix, Estiban leading you through a veritable maze before throwing himself into you as he spotted the men that ended his life. Your conversation with Morix, her family... how you threw away your weapons and simply let her pass. Her offer that you could come too, and leave the wolfpack behind. The bomb, Estiban's body, Wilson's armsmen, the nightmare while you were still awake in the lighter. Toward the end you're rambling, your mind spiraling back into the horrific details of Alica's mutilated body as her eyes just asked you "Why?" and the Emperor's light wouldn't come for he-
>>29243394Your mind simply goes numb as Elise squeezes your torso in her arms, her face turned away but still oddly comforting against your shoulder. After you've calmed, she releases you and steps away awkwardly, but you notice the calculating look to her eyes. "You need to get some rest, Percius, and I need to think this over" a small grin forms on her lips for a moment, and she sighs. "I suppose I should ensure the ship doesn't explode on it's own, too. Wouldn't want my still destroyed before it makes me a drink."Heading for the door, she pauses and turns back. "Do you want me to send Tes and Ana away? Or just leave them be for now?">Send Tes and Ana away from your quarters?>Orders?[ ] Skip to intercept, sabotage interception?[ ] Skip to intercept, Other?[ ] Convince Helmswoman to not intercept?[ ] Get some sleep, but don't skip to intercept (skip 1 or 2 days?)[ ] Other?

>>29243513>>29243870Exhaustion overwhelms you in moments, and you awake to find you've slept late into the next day's shift cycle.A note has been deposited on the desk in your quarters, and beside it rests the small cryptex box your sister Alica said your father wanted you to have. You can almost picture your older sister sitting at the desk and watching over you like mother used to do when any of you were sick.

>>29245001Your stomach rumbles, and you're quite obliged to listen to it's call for food. No need to waste time, however. With a whistle, you call your hat skull from it's idle hat maintenance routines and record a short message for it to deliver to Synne. A quick chirp and the skull is searching for your sister as you exit your quarters, heading for the mess.Tes seems to have been taking a nap in the officer's mess, and several second-shift bridge crew seem quite happy at your presence, especially after one of them gives Tes a nudge. "Captain! You just sit down and I'll fix you up something!"One of the crew, a youth that you doubt can even grow his first whiskers, walks by and offers you his thanks for your timing. "Miss Tes is the best cook on the ship, Captain Aurex. Now that you're here she won't stop cooking up chow until we're all too stuffed to move!""So if I keep Tes cooking I don't have to worry about a mutiny? Good to know" you state a little more than quietly. The crew around you raise their drinks to your joke. "Here-here, Sir!"
>>29246268Helping yourself to a pair of the larger chilled water packs, you claim yourself a spot in the mess and enjoy the mouth-watering smells that are soon floating from Tes' cooking. Synne's hug nearly bowls you from the bench, your sister attacking from your flank as your attention drifts toward Tes' coat and the chain of swears aimed at the range she loudly proclaims produces too much waste heat. "Whatcha loooking at, Percius!" laughs Synne as she pushes you further toward the floor and tries to follow your gaze." With a gasp, she turns to you in shock. "Y-you pervert! I bet you ordered her to cook like that!"All eyes suddenly turn toward you and your sister, then follow her outstretched arm and pointing finger toward Tes. "Wh- what?" Stammers Tes, looking down at her undershirt in confusion, a set of tongs in her hand.Synne's face soon turns to embarrassment as eyes turn back toward her, the silence absolute beyond the sounds of some heavenly smelling food sizzling. "I thought she was... umm... I..."

>>29246368>>29246423You take a long sip from your water as Synne pouts, a smile slowly creeping upon your face. Fortunately for your sister, Tes quickly arrives with a pair of plates for the two of you, each covered in a wild mixture of vibrantly coloured vegitables and thin slices of sweet-smelling meats. "We found a massive hive of insects that collected something one of the techpriests called 'honey', but it has one hell of a bite to it if you don't cook it a bit.""Who was the first one to actually try some random substance on a planet we just arrived at?" Synne asks."Elise. She wondered if she could make booze out of it" smiles Tes.You've been busy stuffing a chunk of the meat in your mouth, while the women wasted time that could be better spent filling their bellies...>1d100 for Tes' cooking

>>29247004Your mouth waters greedily as the sweet taste of whatever the Emperor graced your men to find upon that planet, and the thinly sliced meat practically melts in your mouth. Even the oddly colored vegetables soon vanish from your plate, and while Synne is subjected to a bit more ribbing by Tes, you spirit away a bit of her untouched plate as well. 'He who hesitates has already lost' Gerard always used to say. By the time Synne or Tes notice your little raid, you've had your fill and are once again enjoying cool, refreshing water with a smile at the pair. Synne digs an elbow into your side with a mild growl."Glad you enjoyed it, Captain" smiles Tes.Synne picks at her food for a bit before finally exhaling slowly, the last of her sour mood finally fading."You haven't even touched the box father gave you with the thing, or the note." You can honestly say you've never heard Synne sound so... mature before now.>What say?
>>29247528"With whats been going on, I can't say I've had the time for deep emotional soul searching mysteries, but hopefully I will soon."
>>29247588Synne huffs at your words. "Don't feed me the same shit you've fed yourself. We thought you were dead and it killed him!" She shouts the last part a bit too loudly, and several of your crew seem to decide this conversation doesn't involve them and move to leave the mess.>Response?

>>29248229Guess its time to call it for the night and continue at some point tomorrow?
>>29248406I dunno, I just got nothing to respond to that with, maybe let her vent a little and talk about her grievances, maybe this conversation should go somewhere more private, maybe she wants to help us with the cryptex togetherand fuck you too capcha

>>29256118You sit in silence as the remaining crew try to ignore your sister's outburst, Synne herself sitting rigidly beside you with her eyes downcast. She used to sit like that whenever she was in trouble, back when father and mother were alive. You remember they once argued for nearly four hours, leaving Synne outside in the garden until after a fall storm had ruined the dress that father had bought her the day before. All three ended up hugging in the rain as they begged her to forgive them, until your mother loudly declared your father to be at fault and shoved him into a nearby puddle of mud. They'd all come inside later, covered in mud and laughter still upon their faces, much to the dismay of the servants charged with cleaning up the mess. Sweet little Synne.You catch her arm's movement as she pulls it back slightly and turns toward you, her hand on course to deliver a slap as vicious as the look of anger upon her face.>Orders?[ ] Take it[ ] Block it[ ] Other?

>>29256855>>29256922Your attempt to maintain eye contact with Synne, but her slap throws stars across your vision and forces your head to snap to the side. Several crew are on their feet after the sound of her blow fills the room, but they hesitate to actually take action against your sister in her current state."Say something instead of acting like an Emperor-damned mute, damn it!" Synne screams at you as she stands, backing away as she literally leans into her scream, as if it would actually make her words more powerful. "First mother, then you were dead and he couldn't take it! You killed him by leaving and now you're alive and you won-" Synne's voice trembles as forming tears begin to catch the mess' lights. "You don't even miss him! You killed him and you don't even miss him, Percius! You don't miss either of them, you bastard!">Orders?
Rolled 18>>29257183Hug her."I came back for everyone Synne, I miss all of you, I miss the years I wasn't there, I missed you.""Do you think I enjoyed leaving everyone there? Do you think I heard news of the family? I was in the dark until I came back Synne, If I had heard anything about how our family was moving in those times, I would have returned, for all of you." "I....had left because I thought things were different Synne, I thought Father did not care for me, and that I would be used as a pawn in political games....I regret my decision to leave Synne, but I can do nothing about my decision, nothing about it's results, aside from honor the Aurex name, hit me, curse me, hate me if you wish Synne, I deserve it."
>>29257445>>29257510Synne screams incoherently as you embrace her, but you've taken far worse blows than she can deliver with such little distance between you."Let me go, bastard! I won't believe your damned lies! You weren't there! You left us behind and it killed him! It killed him and you came back! I want him back" Synne is soon alternating between sobbing for your parents to come back and insulting you, though she manages to deliver a few good blows to your ribs that will likely be bruised for a while. She remains tense, however, and violently attempts to struggle free of your embrace before beginning her cycle anew...Finally Tes comes up beside you two, tapping your shoulder.

Tes quietly steps between the two of you before you're able to move towards Synne. "You're a great leader, but this isn't your kind of battle" whispers the woman. "I'll take care of it." She offers you a sad glance before motioning to the mess door, Synne's sobbing beginning once more in ernest. Right, you're making it worse.Sighing as you exit the mess, you consider your next move in this poor start to a day.Orders?[ ] Elise could probably do with being relieved by now...[ ] Examine cryptex...[ ] Find your older sister Alica...[ ] Other?

>>29259150A passing crewman is quickly tasked to sending an apology to your elder sister Alica, while you head back to your quarters.Soon you find yourself sitting at the desk in your quarters, staring at the small, black box Alica once said your father wished to give you. The soft clack signals that the box is unlocked, allowing you to open the dark container. The bronze of the cryptex contrasts nicely with the eleven ivory rings of the object, and you once again note the ninth ring carries a capitalized 'M'. Still clinging to the inside of the box's lid is the folded parchment with 'Percius' written in your father's script. The twinge of disgust from the first time you opened the box boils in your gut.Orders?[ ] Read the note?[ ] Examine the cryptex?[ ] Close this damned box and do something else

>>29259849[ ] Read the note?
>>29259893>>29259899>>29259910The cryptex seems simple enough, beyond the materials used in it's construction. Each ivory ring has the letters and numbers of standard High Gothic upon it, with the only anomoly being the capitalized 'M' of the 9th ring. The engraved wings of an Aquila likely designate the row you have to correctly match to open the device.>It seems I've lost the non-picture format of the note at the moment. See Image
>>29260137Well the capital M must mean that the last 3 rings of the 11 are a seperate word beginning with M.Men? Man?First 8 could be Imperium, Imperial, Emperors?
>>29260420None of these words seem to work...
>>29260420As you turn the rings of the cryptex, you notice a second anomaly upon the 8th ring. It seems to be missing the 'm' and instead has a '.' [period/dot]
>>29260938to clarify due to someone asking [out of thread, the bastard]...you have 7 letter/number rings, a ring where the 'm' is replaced with '.', a ring where the 'm' is 'M', and 2 letter/number rings

>>29260137Enter in the date we died.Enter in the date we left.Enter in the date we were born.
>>29261397A date, perhaps? You set the last seven rings to show the current Imperial year and millenia. '341.M41' Four of the rings remain, however, and you try to think what sort of word your father may have put before a year. You don't recall any polite words he favored with only four letters. Wait, what about a specific date? You quickly turn the rings to the date you ran away, but the cryptex refuses to yield. Perhaps your mother's death? No. The date they married? No. Your birthday? No, it couldn't be that simp-The end of the cryptex simply slips away from the rest as you set the last ring to spell out the day, month, and year of your birth. A roll of parchment with something within it spills out of the cylinder's body, and the muffled thud startles you. The parchment looks ancient, and you carefully unfurl it to find what seems to be a partial star chart with various markings flowing across it. At the center is another folded note, and you feel a small weight within it's folds. A quick motion of your hand reveals the weight to be a tarnished, bronze aquila necklace and your father's script once more."Our family once had a tradition of traveling the stars, and this necklace and map have been passed down from father to son as long as we can trace back. None have ever managed to place the map to it's region of the galaxy, but I hereby continue this family tradition as you take to the stars, my son. Emperor protect you in your travels, Percius."
>>29262083Very interesting. I say we relieve Elise for a shift, and work on the map and necklace next time we're free.
>>29262129>>29262083Bring the necklace with us.
>>29262129>>29262147Returning everything to the way it was, you pocket the tarnished necklace and make your way to the ship's bridge. Elise offers you a weary, but oddly sympathetic smile as she stands from your command throne. Kihomi is oddly absent from the helm, one of her lesser replacements currently guiding the ship. As you take command of the bridge, Elise stands beside you. "Are you alright after your little... spat?" she asks quietly, and the rest of the bridge is quick to busy themselves.>Orders?[ ] Where is Kihomi?[ ] I'm fine, go get some rack time.[ ] What did you hear?[ ] Other
>>29262839"Worry about her, not me.""But what about it has spread already? And where is Kihomi?"
>>29262880Elise puts a hand on your forearm and gives it a light squeeze. "You're my first concern, and word has it Tes has Synne under control. You probably wouldn't like a few of the more vivid ideas being whispered, though." Your XO seems to enjoy the look you give her in response. "Good to see you still don't have a sense of humor, Captain. I thought it best that Kihomi be relieved, though Chief Enginseer Yulem insisted we reduce speed slightly due to strain upon the drives. Nothing we can do about the ship's systems having limits, unfortunately." Her finger sharply taps your arm as she laments the last bit of information.>Orders?[ ] Wait, what about my sister?[ ] Go get some rack time, Elise.[ ] Other

>>29263194>>29263461"Oh, most of them are about how Keller is a poor sod, your sister's points of focus upon a particular cook, and why she wasn't married off. Some of them are evolving into stories of strange noises around her room, though.""You're kidding, right?""Is that an order to investigate them? I could probably make a night or two of it" teases your XO."That isn't funny, she's my little sister, Elise.""Does this mean you'll have to give Tes a talking to about taking advantage of your sister?""W-what?"Elise can't take anymore, and covers her mouth as she bursts into a bit of laughter."Go get some rack time, Elise. You're worse than a drunk right now.""Oh, the ways I could twist that, Captain.""Emperor. Just go to bed, Elise. That is an order."Your XO walks away with a chuckle, offering you a little wave. "By your command, Captain. I am relieved.">Any last retorts?

>>29263749Just a sigh should suffice. Though maybe throw in a thanks for earlier.

>>29264559Who knows what you might find in the uncharted expanses of Sector Corgus?
>>29264602Very true. It should be a interesting adventure if we survive long enough.Also I like how it has been confirmed that Tes is the best cook.How went the job hunt?
>>29264718Currently in the glorious limbo of "we interview right before christmas break so we can say it took us a while to get back to everyone"I've got another one being lined up in the near future, but I fear I may not be able to run PQ if I get it.
>>29264816Well us pirates will be here so keep up the good work and good luck to you in job hunting.As always thanks for the thread MS.
>>29264816RIP PQ. ;_;
