    Thread 3
    Previous threads:
    You sit in the darkness of the simulator pod, pondering your recent defeat. Without the simulated heat of battle, the cooling vest and the sweat coating you cause you to shiver violently in the pod. The pod hatch cracks open to reveal Tess standing outside, like you wearing a cooling vest and absolutely drenched in sweat. Though her mech could dump the heat much more efficiently than yours, it doesn't happen instantaneously, and her constant alpha striking generated four times as much heat as your rampant use of jump jets.
    "Ah, it has been a while since I have been in a cockpit, even if it is just this simulator." She gives you a big grin. "You have the heart of a clan warrior, most pilots would not attempt to take me on head to head like that. If this had been real, and you survived, I would have claimed you as my bondsman." You decide to take the implication that she would make a slave of you as it was intended, complimentary.
    Tess glances down at her chronometer. "Ah, I have duties to attend to, maybe I will see you around mechwarrior."
    It is currently 17:00
    [ ] Room?
    [ ] Food?
    [ ] Nightlife?
    [ ] Library?
    [ ] Other?

    >I would have claimed you as my bondsman."
    "ಠ_ಠ, I can see that it's working out great for you"
    First, we should get some
    >[X] Food
    And let's see if some of our teachers have already released the syllabus for our courses.
    Might as well try to get the books from the
    before the other students hog all the good stff.

    Your stomach takes the opportunity to remind you that the last meal you ate was a light snack on the dropship earlier this morning. You briefly consider heading to one of the nicer restaurants you saw on your walk over, maybe grabbing an early bird special, but you decide to get something instead from the local cafeteria, food being free for students.

    You turn in the borrowed neurohelmet and cooling vest for the simulators (your own being stashed in your mech) before heading outside. Fall in harlech is somewhat chilly, and you're gratified to have only to walk a short way's to enter the cafeteria.

    After selecting your meal, you look for a place to sit. You spot a gaggle of younger students, most of them probably not even legal, all around one table, with two or three seats open. You also spot your roommate, Jared Carter, seated at a table.

    [ ] Sit with group of students?
    [ ] Sit with Carter?
    [ ] Sit alone?

    See if we can find a group of newbies like us to eat with. Should be easy to make aquaintances on the first day.

    You drop your trey in front of an empty spot, and pull out the chair. The three women and two men immediately cease their conversation to regard you.

    "So, you guys students here?" You attempt to break the ice.

    "Yeah, we're a study group." A woman with brown hair remarks after a couple of seconds. She seems to be the oldest one in the group.

    "Mind if I sit down then?" You ask, and take a cautious nod as consent, plopping down into the chair between a slight, redheaded girl and a muscular dark skinned man. Both of them wrinkle their noses as they catch a whiff of your odor.

    "Just got outta the sim pods." You explain with a smile.

    "I didn't realize they had opened up the pods to the student body yet." The brown haired woman states.

    What do?

    "They needed a volunteer for a test run, and I was simply on my way back from the hangars, exploring the city, you know?"

    We should probably also introduce ourselves.

    "They needed a volunteer for a test run, and I was simply on my way back from the hangars, exploring the city, you know?"
    You explain offhandedly.
    "Offworlder eh?" The woman asks you, the others apparently content to watch the situation.
    "Yes, just got in this morning." You proceed to introduce yourself, and pick up their names and where they are from, you attempt to commit them all to memory.
    The brown haired girl name is Kaitlyn - Fedsuns
    Red haired girl is Annie - Fedsuns
    Dark skinned man is Robert - Free worlds league
    Asian man is Tormax - St. Ives compact
    Brunette girl with glasses is Laura - Lyran Alliance.

    You engage them in conversation for the next twenty minutes, before remembering that you wanted to head to the library. You excuse yourself, but not before securing an invitation to study with them if you need it.

    You are halfway to the library when you realize you aren't totally sure what books you'll need for the classes.

    [ ] Press on - Maybe a librarian will be able to assist you, or you can find something interesting to read.
    [ ] Head to room - If they sent out the syllabus, it'll probably be waiting for you there. You don't want to have to make two trips to the library, do you?

    If it's any kind of respectable library, each course will have its own book shelf with the stuff the professor expects his students to read anyway.

    >Two people in this thread.

    Maybe I shouldn't have started this at the exact same time as strike witches quest.

    I think we'll continue from here, tomorrow night, same time.

    That's totally understandable.
