[The world has been saved, hopefully for the last time in a long time. The celebrations - and the mourning - have started, and in a lot of places are still continuing. But the victory isn't the only thing to celebrate - and with a lot of help, and a lot of favours, Laura and Lily have extended an invitation to the Chalice crew, past and present, to join them. If you were nearby, chances are the invitation was hand-delivered by a dutiful Servbot.]

1. The setup
[With the looming deadline of the closing portals, things move quickly! Invitations are sent, travel is arranged, a venue is prepared. What had been the White Chalice's Arboretum - now an open-air grove in what's set to become a lush forest - is the site of the ceremony itself, while the celebrations afterwards will take place in Gucun. There's a lot to be done to make ready. Are you helping, or seeking out one of the brides beforehand?]

2. The ceremony
[It's only fitting that Captain Smith should officiate. He's waiting at an arch set up by the flowerbeds of the Arboretum, where the happy couple met, where Laura's tended her memorial to her friends from before the Chalice and to those who've passed on since. Between the Kwan daughters, Epimetheus, and a brace of Servbots you shouldn't have any trouble finding your seat, even if Xue Yi is a little preoccupied ensuring Prometheus behaves. There's some time before the wedding party arrive, to talk amongst yourselves - or with some of the other guests present, who include Laura's overwhelmed-looking parents!]

3. The reception
[Of course, the real point of a wedding is the party afterwards! There's food, drink, and music - Miki pulled some strings, and Pit's showing how Skyworld does catering. After the recent battle, perhaps this is a chance to see some long-absent faces in more peaceful circumstances, or to say goodbye. Or are you just here for the embarrassing speeches?]

[This is a joint mingle post, open to dropped and retired characters as well! For all prompts, please specify whether it's Laura/Lily you want to talk reply, or others!]

1. *In the middle of the hustle-bustle of White Chalice's abrupt remodelling, suddenly a huge airship approaches and docks. But rather than a warship, it's a construction ship, bristling with cranes and mechanical arms.

As the ship closes in, Herb looks VERY panicked. He throws random things from his room to his bindle, before tying it up.*



Oh crap. The Firm. It finally caught on my location! If anyone's asking, I'm not here! I'm...  eaten by the primeval force!


2. From the ship, a swarm of grim-looking men in black suits and sunglasses descends.

The leader of the grim-looking gang is a young man in business suit and ponytail. He walks forward and opens his sunglasses and grins.*



"So this is White Chalice..." He politely greets you. "Excuse me sir/madam. Can you kindly direct me to Mr. Herbert Montgomery?"


3*. ...and the ship's cargo door opens. From it descends a horde of workers and construction robots bringing supplies, ammunitions, and whatnot. The ponytailed young man points with his hand and yell.*

"Spare nothing! Supply every mechs and ships you can see here. And after that, help with the reconstruction of White Chalice. Use every available workers and mechs we have! Show the pride of Montgomery Construction!"

(Backdated to halloween, obviously).

If you peek through the always open doors of Gentlemen Adventurer's Defensive Comparative Theology Club (it exists!), it looks slightly different this season. The items that adorn the room are distinctively... more ominous than usual. A disturbingly red-stained grinning statue stands on top of the the shelves, watching at you unpleasantly. A totem that you're sure made of bone is propped to the wall beside it.. A limbless teddy bear, staring at you with its button eyes. A can of sardine. A picture of someone in period clothings. A stuffed cat. And many more.

Herb can be seen propping a life-sized dwarf clown statue near the door.

"Ah, halloween. You could be scarier, if we didn't just defeated an immortal evil lich."

[1] (Locked to everyone who tried to rescue Matthew during "Different Faces of Warfare". And Ryou.)

You get a video message from Matthew soon after returning to the White Chalice. He's still wearing his armored cooling vest, stained at the front with green fluid, the hilt of the knife he used to fake stab himself still poking out of it. He looks cross.

Read more... )

[2]

You see Matthew lounging in one of the White Chalice's portside lodges, gazing up at the sky. Very soon, the Jade Falcon invasion fleet will be braking into orbit, and the Chalice will go to war to protect the Earth against his former Clan.

He sighs. "Simon...where are you now? And what would you do in my shoes?"

He pauses. "Actually, I can guess exactly what you would do."

[3]

You stumble upon Matthew, in the simulator room, training his butt off! He's putting his modified Nova through a set of scenarios in space, inside a ship's hanger bay, and on land, fighting against a variety of Clanner Mechs. It looks like he's...trying to disable them? He's concentrating laser fire at their arms and legs, blowing them off at their joints.

 (Backdated to after Arduus Umbris finale)

Epimetheus looks rather more sullen than usual today. Most likely it's because he just lost both of his legs from knees to below. But apparently, somebody duct taped him onto a small radio-controlled toy-tank. Or is it that that makes him sullen?

Either way, he's now moving back and forth in the hallway with a remote control on his hands. Back and forth. 

Bother the robot or try to find the mysterious party who did that to him?

*Of course you know that Castles and Cockatrices is a popular fantasy pen-and-paper rpg.  The way this game still exists now in the age of virtual reality and giant robot shows how ubiquitous and popular the game is. If you read the rulebook, it's simple enough, with standard fantasy classes and races and all that jazz.*

If you remember, Herb's club room was just newly erected, but apparently there's already a new sign replacing the old sign haphazardly.

"Gentlemen Adventurer's Defensive Comparative Theology Club"

A sign saying "accepting new members" is hung underneath.

The door is open. Inside, hanging on the wall there are two big brass panels. One is saying.

"Membership:

Vice President 1: Werter Wolf"
Vice President 2: Roads Blackwell"

The other sign is carved with.

"Evil Gods Thwarted:

*Herb and Epimetheus are serving drinks as usual in the bar.*

Another day, another apocalypse averted. Man, I should stop having "free post-averting-end-of-the-world drink."

I still don't get the Custos' motivations though. Wanting to rule the world? That I understand. Ruling the world gives you certain privileges like freedom to appoint Tuesday as free ice cream day and having the best mattress in the planet. Even Baphomet have somewhat understandable motivation.

But wanting to unmake the world? I know they're not the only people who want that. Why do you ever want to destroy the world?

While we're at it, that makes me wonder. What other villanious aspirations have we faced?

Following the grand melee, the Trial of Bloodname begins over a period of several weeks. Khan Phelan Kell has continued to provide free transportation for those onboard the Chalice for those who would like to pop by time to time or to view specific matches.

(1)
Ranna is in the observation room, watching another sort of ritual going on. Two of the warriors are in a room with a bowl like implement, and they both input a coin at opposite end at the top - the mechanism is released, as both coins spin downwards towards the bottom, which is coin-sized.

One coin lands on top of another, and the warrior whose coin is at the top announced "I choose for us to fight in our mechs" and the other said in response "Our location shall be in the outskirts of the city at the north-eastern clearing".

As the next few pairings occur, it seems that not only mechwarriors are involved - Elementals and aerospace pilots too, going by the type of combat that was chosen.

(2)
For a day or two each week for the next few weeks, the observation room would be open for viewing of individual matches. It seems the nominees are given some time to prepare themselves after terms have been dictated in the 'ritual'.

Ranna will be on the Chalice between each of her own match, standing-by for any sorties as usual. But you may find her in the gym or in the simulators practicing more than what was typical of her before.

Disturb/join in?

(3)
Ranna's matches through the Trial has been rather eventful. Then again, those who watch 'live' or recorded replays of all the matches will notice that they have all been eventful - it seems that all those nominated for the Kerensky bloodname were there for very good reasons. Not only were many of them good warriors in their chosen vehicles, they were excellent strategists as well.

Her own highlight is a second round match against an Aerospace pilot, him in his fighter and her in a mech. She had chosen a custom configuration with 4 lasers, and sheared off one wing of his fighter in a single pass - no fault of his, for he had attempted to juke around on his approach. Unfortunately, lasers travel at the speed of light, and she is an accurate shot.

Her final match is slightly different, as those from the White Chalice are invited to the site of battle itself, sitting behind a transparent screen a 'safe' distance away, with supplementary holo-displays. They are not the only one though, as there are a sizable amount of spectators too.

Sandra Pryde is there as well, watching her former foe engage in the Trial.

Ranna's Warhawk exchanges fire against a Direwolf, and for many minutes the two mechs hunt each other in the wooded terrain. Ranna keeps her distance to avoid the heavier mech's autocannons, and in the end her marksmanship proves to be decisive as a salvo of particle bolts cuts cleanly through the Direwolf's weakened left leg, collapsing it front first into the snow.

She pilots the Warhawk back towards the hangar as her victory is confirmed.

Wach the Trial with Sandra and/or meet Ranna in the hangar?

1. Laura's room

[Visitors or passers by the day after Lily's departure will find her engaged in a strange-looking mix of tidying the place up and packing for a trip. It shouldn't be all that time-consuming a task, but it seems to be taking her a while - unsurprisingly, if you witness one of the times she stops on finding one or another item to put away or add to the packing pile, having to sit and turn it over in her hands, looking a million miles away.]

2. Network (filtered)

[Doctors, spacers, aliens - a number of people aboard find Laura getting in touch over the next few days. She doesn't waste much time on pleasantries.]

What do we have aboard for long-distance, long-term travel? What would you need?

3. Hangar

[The rest of the time, she's in the hangar.

A lot. Working in and around Lily's ship, she's there so much it's not unlikely she's sleeping there, too. The ship itself doesn't show much sign of change, but its surroundings do - computer workstations multiplying around it, cables snaking out and to and between them. The captive Pepen's cage, too, soon moves to beside the ship, its own set of cables wiring the angry golden creature in to the whole shebang. Having called amnesty on her hangar duties for a while, Laura's returning the favour by staying out from under the feet of the other techs, but that doesn't mean the buzz of activity, or the occasional stream of profanity that erupts from the ship, or the obvious frustration in her body language when she taps away at the workstation the Pepen's wired in to, don't draw attention.

Sessions with the Pepen seem to be the most frequent. Other times, she's working at the ship's controls, or waist-deep in a maintenance duct somewhere. At least one evening, she can be found dozing in the pilot's seat with a blanket wrapped around her, lit by the glow of the screens.]

Join the genuine 'adventurer's new year party!' Gather together and bring your favourite food for White Chalice year-end celebration potluck dinner at the deck. And bring something too for the main course: Put-everything-and-anything-in Adventurer's Gumbo!

Later on the deck, you found tables and drinks already prepared.

1.What do you think? We never had much, so this is what we 'adventurers' used to do for celebrations back then when I was still on the road.

2.*It's the potluck table! What did you bring or you found there? Or you just want to chat with people?*

3.*And for the main course, Herb had prepared a huge bubbling cauldron. What did you bring or found?*
Come on! Put anything inside. It'll be fun!

1)

A few days after the battle against the Inspectors, a dropship (similar to but not the one attached to the Chalice) bearing the insignia of Clan Wolf arrives.

One Ranna is there as the dropship unloads some supplies, weapon pods and mech part. While the technicians transfer them onboard Chalice, a woman wearing the Wolves' formal dress uniform alights the visiting ship without much fanfare.

Ranna salutes her. "Galaxy Commander."

The other woman returns the salute before smiling, "I come bearing word from Khan Phelan Ward - it is official, we have entered into an agreement to fight these 'Inspectors' you reported on."

She then hands over what appears to be a datadisk. "Furthermore, this is a message from your House. I am aware this is rather irregular, but we do live in irregular times - since I am already making the trip, I offered the House Leader to carry it here."

For once, Ranna appears almost speechless, before she nods, "Aff. Thank you."

The galaxy commander chuckles with some familiarity, "Perhaps you will gain a promotion after this, Star Captain, quiaff?"

A grin. "Perhaps, Jocelyn, perhaps."

After some chit-chat, Jocelyn will board the dropship once more, leaving Ranna with a contemplative look as she idles in the hangar.

2)

Some time later, invitations are send out, either in person by Ranna or left at your room/locker/email.

Dear comrades,

There will be a formal event taking place in Wolf City in the coming weeks, and I would like to extend my invitation to you as guests, friends and allies to visit our enclave in Siberia on the next dropship departure.

Should you not wish to witness the event, feel free to look around the city. As of now, we have yet to integrate our currency with the rest of Terra, so if you wish to trade and barter, you may do so using my requisition chip.

I do encourage bringing goods that you can spare in order to trade - it will aid us greatly.

Ranna

[The evening after the attack of the Inspectors, Hayato could be found at Herb's bar, sitting in the darkest, quietest corner like the anti-hero he is, nursing a glass of scotch and brooding. Eventually he spoke loud enough to be heard.]

A toast: To the blindness of politicians, and the doom of millions!

[He tossed back the drink and slouched deeper in his seat. It looks like this may not have been his first drink of the evening.]

Maybe when a few more cities are burning ruins, they'll get their heads out of their asses. I'm not holding my breath though.

I've been thinking. This bar could have some more in the entertainment front, don't you think? That dinky piano can only goes so far.

Do you have any ideas?
[identity profile] paradigmstop.livejournal.com
The bar wasn't exactly Paradigm standards, but it would do. Roger knew all about the recent terrible trauma and bad stuff that had happened to Mad, had been told about her recent attempts to kill both herself and others, and the unfortunate fate of her black and yellow Dom, Maria.

Roger was a smart man, though. He knew it was not ever a wise choice to try to negotiate with a party that was irritated or upset unless there was no choice in it, so he waited a bit before talking with Mad. He was still in the waiting phase, letting her cool down and solidify back into a person, when the idea came to him that maybe she would want a little help cooling down.

It was with that idea that he found himself seated at the bar, motioning for the barkeep.

[OOC:Mad should come in after the first thing is set and the plot point is established. That will happen in a separate thread.]

So earlier this morning, when I woke up from bed, I suddenly thought. Hey, won't it be nice to skedaddle out of here with my bindle and continue my personal adventure across the world? So I just did that.

Thanks for all the good time, White Chalice. I'm surprised at how attached I am to you guys. I'm not supposed to be attached to any single place, but what can I say, you guys are so nice. But this is just something I have to do. To travel the world with my own feet, to test my strength and wits. To be stronger. To follow my heart, to go where the wind blows. And I can't think a better time to continue my journey other than now, after we just defeated the Adventus. With those jerks gone, I believe you can spare a single fighter, can you? Even if the fighter is as awesome as me.

The wind doesn't know where it goes, and so do I. But I can only wish that we'll meet again in the future. I'll be stronger the next time we meet, so stay alive until then, White Chalice. And you too rival. Don't disappoint me, for the sake of our destined fight in the future.

Herb Montgomery.

Today you see Epimetheus looking rather gloomy (well, more than usual), and sticking out to corners and walls. You even notice him wearing a hood one time, which, to be honest, just making him sticking out more. You think there's something's unusual with him, but you're not sure what.

And one way or another, maybe you stumbled upon him on a hall, or you cornered him somewhere, then you realizes what's wrong with him. There's two black cat ears sticking out of his head!

The mission had been... well, fairly boring for Haman, but her kill count made her feel better, especially after getting damaged during her previous mission.
And now that they where back in space, Haman was glad to be back in her native environment.
You might find her floating smugly down the hallways, quite pleased to have her feet off the ground again.

(I know that it's not technically new year yet in server time, but I've been living in the far flung future of the year 2012 for a few hours, and I want to post this before sleeping)

Happy New Year!

A sign is hung on the door of Herb Montgomery's bar.

"New Year Party! 50% off for all booze if you wear a mask. Another 25% discount if I can't recognize you when I'm still sober"

*Feel free to mingle!*

*Herb opens his eyes. He finds himself lying down on the sickbay*

Where... where am I? What happened... What time is this....

Last thing I remember was...I was walking on some hallway and I found some sushi...

*He reflexively puts his hands on his mouth and retches*

[Late on the last evening before the Chalice departs from Fairy Park, a new face appears aboard - a pale, petite young woman with long red hair and the look of someone who isn't sure where they're supposed to be headed but doesn't want to admit it. It doesn't help that she appears to be steering around whatever concentrations of people exist at this hour, with the side effect of routing her away from most interesting locations. After a while of fruitless wandering on the Promenade, she gives up and hesitantly approaches the nearest person.]

Um, hello... I'm new aboard, and I need to see the captain, or whoever's in charge... do you know where I can find them?

Ah, I'm Laura, Laura Ericks. I'm here to join the crew, so I guess that means we'll be teammates - it's nice to meet you.

[Her left hand is tightly grasping a sealed envelope, while her right fidgets with a metal wristwatch on her left arm. Is this girl afraid of you, or just afraid of everything?

Laura's looking for the Captain - does she turn to you for help, or do you run in to her on her way there?]

Hello... Dan?

[Laura pokes at the terminal uncertainly - she knows how to use a terminal, but not where a ship's AI might be found on one.]

You are walking near the kitchen when you realize something. There're sounds and lights coming out from a nearby store room. You wonder. You're sure that yesterday that store room was empty. And you open the door.

Sounds of jazz piano greets you as you see a tiny black robot with a small bowtie on his neck wiping an empty shot glass on top of a counter. He looks at you for a moment, but then shrugs and continues with his work, as if saying, 'come if you want, or not, I don't really care'. And behind him, rows of various kinds of liquors glistens in wooden racks. 

You then realize, that a bar had just fully formed out of nowhere in White Chalice. The furnitures might be makeshifts, made of wooden crates and chairs you're sure pilfered from dozens of different places, but it's a real bar.



The jazz music came from the corner, where Herb, decked with tuxedo, can be seen playing...

Well, it's not exactly a grand piano. He's playing a small near-toy electronic keyboard now. But isn't it's the music that counts?

[Michael was regarding the dented, maimed and de-powered Wolf that was now getting worked on. He had his own share of bruises too but those were mostly dealt with. In fact the President was shirtless and all clothing above the waist was just bandages.]

Man. What a mess. Here I thought Wolf was plenty tough.

[The weapons he used were also getting a few tune ups here and there. Some circuitry on the shark Launchers was fried from the overcharge that ended with them firing Megalodons of all things at Starscream. The weapon pod that was torn off in the battle needed lots of readjustment and much fixing as did its contents. It was just mess all around there.]

[The president is sitting on a conveniently placed crate and leaning on his knee. Bother him?]

[Roger is sitting in the hangar, doing some work with glue and leather, and guess what Roger has managed to scavenge up in his spare time?]
[A baseball bat, a few balls (some of which are even baseballs! Others of which are tennis balls, wiffle balls, approximately appropriately sized super bouncy balls, and one golf ball...), and a pile of mits, ranging from ratty to well weathered condition.]
[He's applying some super glue to a rip in one of the gloves AND]
ALRIGHT! Now all I need is a team and some space~!

Who wants to form up some baseball teams? Pretty please?

1. [Overnight someone splattered most of White Chalice's walls with posters. They show an enlargened photo, with Tsukasa and Werter in the kitchen. The former leans in closely, looking as if he was going to kiss the other guy, while the latter looks surprised and awkward. The picture is pretty bad quality, as if taken hastily by a not very skilled paparazzi.

It's very hard to go anywhere on the ship without stumbling across at least one of these posters. React to them?]



2. [At the same time Werter is eating late breakfast in the kitchen, looking like a sleep-deprived zombie. Most people don't eat it at such late hour, but most people aren't lazy college students. The state he's in is probably the reason he doesn't seem to have noticed the posters. Enlighten him?]

[It's been a few hours since the crew got back from the unfortunate space colony. Nothing seems out of ordinary. Except if someone walks pass the Arboretum...

Wait. Is that a tent? Did someone pitch a dirty small tent in the corner of the arboretum? There's even a line of drying laundries hanging on a nearby tree. And just beside the tent, lies a pile of mysterious crates.

Other than that, everything is as serene as usual there.]
