Location: Huola, Planet Seven
Setting: Once the planetside paradise for the wealthy scion of the Cerra family, Cerra Manor stands as yet another estate unable to escape the realities of the endless war raging in the skies above Huola. The palatial manor house itself, miraculously, remains largely unscathed from the brutal conflict waged between Templar and Templar, but the surrounding grounds bear the terrible scars of battle. Fallen palm trees and walls riddled with bullet holes sit idly around Cerra Manor, remnants of serene tranquility torn asunder in a few moments of war. From the landing pad or the surface transportation provided by the tramway, visitors are escorted through tightened security details--bolstered by the presence of not only Cerra guards but also those employed by the Triumvirate alliance. Weapons are confiscated at all times unless the owner holds a special license issued by Lady Shalee Lianne. What pieces of furniture that weren’t destroyed in the attack sit amidst new stock, creating an aura of surreal before and after upon the Terrace--chairs, chaise lounges, rockers, and several outdoor sofas of varieties that survived the battle and those lucky enough to escape the onslaught. Drinks and food are served upon request by a dedicated, if nervous, team of smartly dressed servers. The retractable roof for the rainy season is no longer operational, having been replaced with sun umbrellas by a staff desperate for a return to normalcy. Holodrones are available on the Terrace. A three-tiered fountain, more like a three-tiered waterfall, sits directly in the center of the Terrace, battered and broken but somehow still providing a gentle trickle of water for the species of koi that inhabit the pond. Visitors are allowed to stroll the gardens and visit the nearby waterfall, the menagerie, and the public rooms of the Manor house, though special care should be taken in light of the repairs being undertaken by construction drones. Overnight accommodation is also available at the guest cottages which is located opposite the house, near the menagerie.
[ 2015.10.10 02:45:35 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote pulls Rebecca into an embrace, "Tara did this to you?" She glances to Tiger, "We need to speak to Reginald about her."
[ 2015.10.10 02:46:15 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > "Reginald? Do we have to?"
[ 2015.10.10 02:46:57 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote nods, "It is important. It is his duty to deal with those in his care." She frowns lightly, "Is it going to be an issue if I speak to him?"
[ 2015.10.10 02:47:07 ] Reginald Sakakibara > Rebecca nods, "Mmmmhmmm." "My tutors at the Clarelam estate hurt me before, but she...re-reopened the wounds. That's what the nurse said."
[ 2015.10.10 02:48:44 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > "It's no issue at all, darling. Though I would like air my opinion regarding this new girl. I almost caught her attempting to kill a construction worker a few weeks back"
[ 2015.10.10 02:49:05 ] Thal Vadam > /emote looks at Tiger "I'm looking to bring you and your wife on an expedition to recover a relic of early Empire history..."
[ 2015.10.10 02:49:27 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote as Thal and Tiger speak, she sends a quick word to Regi.
[ 2015.10.10 02:49:52 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote looks back to Thal. "A relic? What sort and when would we depart?"
[ 2015.10.10 02:50:32 ] Thal Vadam > "A ship, and as soon as you're ready..."
[ 2015.10.10 02:51:34 ] Vlad Cetes > /emote turns to SHalee> If we could please speak in private before you leave
[ 2015.10.10 02:51:45 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote nods his head. "I'd be delighted to assist you, Templar", he then looks to his wife to see her response
[ 2015.10.10 02:52:52 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote walks onto the Terrace. Rebecca smiles immediately and runs up to him. He falls to one knee and embraces his niece warmly. He hoists her into his arms, then looks to Shalee, "You called for me, my lady?"
[ 2015.10.10 02:54:08 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote nods to Cetes, "Yes." She stands on her tippytoes and brushes her lips across Tiger's cheek, "Give me a moment." She looks to Reginald, "Hello Reginald. I just wanted to make sure you were aware of the situation."
[ 2015.10.10 02:55:36 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote nods solemnly, "I only wish I had been here to prevent it from occurring. As I understand, Miss Bloodstone and Katerina intervened as soon as Tara... made her decision."
[ 2015.10.10 02:58:04 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote enters from the landing pad. She is wearing her Khaki Amarr Jacket and slacks. She's been hauling logi in the warzone. She walks slowly seeing the crowd on the terrance and flashes a tired smile.
[ 2015.10.10 02:58:37 ] Thal Vadam > /emote walks up to Luna "Hello my Lady..."
[ 2015.10.10 02:59:21 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says warmly "hello Templar." She glances and says in an amused voice "recovered from the volleyball game". She smiles also at Shalee and Tiger, a fainter one for Regiland.
[ 2015.10.10 03:00:08 ] Thal Vadam > "...Are you free tonight Luna?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:00:28 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote turns to Luna, his niece still in his arms, "Good evening, Lady Aspenstar." He bows his head politely.
[ 2015.10.10 03:00:45 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote nods to Lunarisse, "Evening." She returns her attention to Reginald, "Very well. If you will excuse me." She heads off towards the gardens to chat with Vlad.
[ 2015.10.10 03:00:49 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote glances at the Templar and turns pink suddenly, misunderstanding.
[ 2015.10.10 03:01:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "... yes, Templar?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:01:51 ] Thal Vadam > "I believe I've found the location of an ancient Amarrian relic...I'm bringing Shalee, Tiger, and Kador"
[ 2015.10.10 03:02:07 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > Ahhh Luna. How pleasant to see you again. I have secret weapon for when we play again. My wife will be on my side. We even started practicing last weekend.
[ 2015.10.10 03:03:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Oh?" She tilts her head, her eyes flashing with interest, not entirely clear whether at Tiger's remark, or Thal's. She adds "the Society has as partof its mission the investigation and recovery of such objects.. are you asking if i can come along?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:04:31 ] Thal Vadam > "absolutely"
[ 2015.10.10 03:04:43 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Wonderful. I'd be delighted."
[ 2015.10.10 03:05:05 ] Thal Vadam > "Pack warm..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:05:07 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "A reliec?" Reginald turns to Thal, "Of what origin?" He grins, "Nothing heretical, I would hope."
[ 2015.10.10 03:05:54 ] Thal Vadam > /emote glares at Reginald, almost offended "Absolutely not..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:06:32 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "I just of course, Templar." Rebecca looks at Thal, "What is a 'relic,' Templar?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:07:09 ] Reginald Sakakibara > jest*
[ 2015.10.10 03:07:44 ] Thal Vadam > /emote smiles at Rebecca "A very very old piece of cultural, technological, or religious importance"
[ 2015.10.10 03:10:07 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "Interesting." Her mind wonders how Thal got a lead on such a thing, but she is content to be patient as to answers.
[ 2015.10.10 03:13:22 ] Reginald Sakakibara > Rebecca nods, "What is it that you found, Templar?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:13:48 ] Thal Vadam > /emote looks down at Rebecca "A ship..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:13:56 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "What kind of ship?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:15:44 ] Thal Vadam > /emote glances at Reginald "A warship by the look of it..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:24:42 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote nods, "I assume you possess all the licenses and necessary permits to commence an archeological dig?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:27:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote eyes flash "Depends on where it is I suppose" She looks at Thal "Where are we going?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:28:07 ] Satja Askariin > /emote wanders onto the terrance alone, an unusual sight, a triumphant grin written across her features though dark ring are evident around her eyes. She wanders over to Thal "He does now Lord Sakibara."
[ 2015.10.10 03:28:57 ] Satja Askariin > "His request to conduct and archeological expedition was approve not a few hours ago."
[ 2015.10.10 03:30:00 ] Thal Vadam > /emote smiles "Thank you Satja. Esescama, Luna"
[ 2015.10.10 03:31:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "If you need transportation, I am happy to supply. there's plenty of room on the TES On Eagle's Wings
[ 2015.10.10 03:31:39 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "Congratulations, Templar." Rebecca echoes, "Congratulations!" She rushes over to the bar and returns with the most celebratory drink she could think of--alcohol-free sparkling apple cider, "For you, Templar Vadam!"
[ 2015.10.10 03:33:40 ] Thal Vadam > /emote smiles at Rebecca and takes the cider "Thank you my dear..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:34:25 ] Thal Vadam > "I'd be greatful Luna"
[ 2015.10.10 03:35:09 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote returns to the terrace shadowed by her two TRI guards. She glances around, noting a couple of new people have arrived. She nods politely as she makes her way over to Tiger.
[ 2015.10.10 03:35:35 ] Satja Askariin > /emote sways in place a moment and looks around for somewhere to sit. "If you'll excuse me my Lords I think I'll go and collapse elsewhere, battling through the Theological Council's red tape took all night." She bows, walks away to a chair, yawning.
[ 2015.10.10 03:35:56 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote looks up at Shalee as she nears him. "All sorted?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:36:14 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote looks over to Shalee, bowing politely. He nods to Satja, "By all means," then turns to Thal, "Pack warm, Templar?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:36:28 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > ((whenever ready you can handwave I haul you and shuttles there))
[ 2015.10.10 03:36:41 ] Reginald Sakakibara > ((oh whoops, that may have been ooc, disregard my last))
[ 2015.10.10 03:37:01 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods. She pushes some buttons in her datapad to alert the crew that guests will be coming.
[ 2015.10.10 03:37:07 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote nods, "Yes." Her smile wavers for a moment, "It was ...uhm. Protocol, for the corp." She rubs her wrist absently. "He is just being protective."
[ 2015.10.10 03:38:04 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > "Protective? Cetes?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:38:18 ] Thal Vadam > "Esescama 9 is an ice world. The general temperature is -80 degrees centigrade"
[ 2015.10.10 03:39:04 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote pats Rebecca on the head, "How thoughftful of you, dear." He shoots awake, then looks at Thal, "190 Kelvin?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:39:40 ] Thal Vadam > "As I said, pack warm..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:39:40 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote reviews her datapad, her eyes widen at this Temperature Chart which explains that to her.
[ 2015.10.10 03:39:51 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote shakes her head, "No. He was just following orders." She reaches for Tiger's hand, "Garst. He said it was an ID chip but we both know it is a tracking device. But I don't mind."
[ 2015.10.10 03:40:51 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "I think this goes beyond 'packing warm' templar"
[ 2015.10.10 03:41:00 ] Reginald Sakakibara > Rebecca looks at Thal, "May I join you, Templar Vadam?" She has no idea that stepping outside on that planet would result in near-instant death.
[ 2015.10.10 03:41:06 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > "We need environmental suits"
[ 2015.10.10 03:41:07 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote looks at Shalee, a frown creeping across his face. "Garst is tracking you?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:41:31 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods at Luna "I'm afraid not Rebecca..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:41:57 ] Reginald Sakakibara > Rebecca frowns, "How come? I want to find the 'relic.'"
[ 2015.10.10 03:42:00 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote wets her lips, looking slightly confused for a moment as she thinks about it, "I don't know...I am just assuming."
[ 2015.10.10 03:42:37 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > "Where is this device?", he asks, looking down her body, towards her hands.
[ 2015.10.10 03:43:12 ] Thal Vadam > /emote leans down in-front of Rebecca "It's a very cold planet, dangerously so...We need you here, safe"
[ 2015.10.10 03:43:26 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote holds up her hand, showing him her wrist. "It was injected." She gives a quick smile. "But I don't mind, it doesn't matter to me if he knows where I am."
[ 2015.10.10 03:43:36 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "Because it's so cold, you'd become a popsicle in a few moments, darling," He pats Rebecca's head, "Remember when we went to make snow angels last winter? Think of how cold that was, then think colder."
[ 2015.10.10 03:43:49 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "Colder?" Rebecca frowns, having difficulty imagining anything colder.
[ 2015.10.10 03:43:58 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "Yes, quite cold."
[ 2015.10.10 03:44:14 ] Reginald Sakakibara > Rebecca looks at Thal, "But... couldn't we just bring hot cocoa to keep us warm?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:44:40 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote reaches for her hand and raises it to his lips. "Last thing we need is Garst showing up when we're away somewhere together"
[ 2015.10.10 03:45:09 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote steps onto the terrace quietly, looking around at everyone assembled there. She walks over towards Thal, who had requested her presence some time ago, acknowledging him with a smile. "Templar?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:45:11 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote looks amused at the girl.
[ 2015.10.10 03:45:30 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote laughs softly, "He will never come here. He wants me to stay there. He hates it here." She strokes her fingers across the side of his face, "Don't worry."
[ 2015.10.10 03:45:44 ] Thal Vadam > /emote smiles and pats Rebecca's shoulder "It's so cold even that would freeze"
[ 2015.10.10 03:46:02 ] Reginald Sakakibara > "Good evening, Miss Bloodstone," He smiles. Rebecca also smiles at Rebecca then makes a face, "Even hot cocoa?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:46:34 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods at Sahriah "Even hot coco..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:46:37 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote takes a deep breath, then nods his head. "The man needs to realise we're together, and your place is here"
[ 2015.10.10 03:47:08 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote looks over at Regi. "Evening."
[ 2015.10.10 03:47:32 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote smiles sweetly, "He knows. You mustn't worry or think ill of him, Tiger. He is a very good man and a good father and takes care of us."
[ 2015.10.10 03:47:41 ] Thal Vadam > "Sahriah, got a fire for adventure in your blood?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:48:46 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote places a hand on Rebecca's shoulder, "Come, dear. Let's not prevent the expedition from setting off." Rebecca makes a disappointing "awwwwwwww" sound.
[ 2015.10.10 03:48:48 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote frowns for a moment, surprised by her sudden change of attitude. "He is?", he asks, lowering his gaze.
[ 2015.10.10 03:48:52 ] Satja Askariin > /emote yawns and offers Sahriah a tired wave for a nearby couch.
[ 2015.10.10 03:48:57 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote looks back to the Templar with a questioning look. "What kind of adventure? We arn't under attack again are we?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:49:13 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote says "I am sure he is."
[ 2015.10.10 03:49:41 ] Thal Vadam > "On no, an expedition to a frozen world to find an ancient Amarrian relic"
[ 2015.10.10 03:50:46 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote presses her mouth to his, as if she could kiss away his frown. She kisses him softly then pulls back, "Yes. He is just protective so stop worrying."
[ 2015.10.10 03:50:49 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote looks up at the night's sky and back down to him. "Now?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:51:10 ] Thal Vadam > "Why not?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:51:48 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote leads Rebecca off of the Terrace. He looks back to Thal, "Enjoy your expedition, Templar Vadam."
[ 2015.10.10 03:51:52 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote nods his head, still not convinced but keeping his concern to himself. "As you wish, darling. As lomg as you're happy"
[ 2015.10.10 03:53:02 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote shrugs, unable to come up with a decent answer to that. "Sure, I guess so then." She watches Rebecca as she's escorted from the terrace and then around at the others. "Who else is going?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:53:18 ] Sahriah BloodStone > ((directed at Thal))
[ 2015.10.10 03:53:50 ] Thal Vadam > "Luna, Kador, myself. Hopefully Shalee and Tiger"
[ 2015.10.10 03:54:55 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote looks over at Thal. "Well, I may need to go get changed first. I haven't even stepped foot inside yet!"
[ 2015.10.10 03:55:22 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote nods, seeming rather reserved. "You said frozen world. Do we need to bring some gear for this?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:56:14 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods at Tiger "Indeed we do..."
[ 2015.10.10 03:56:29 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote "I should change as well." She links her hand with Tigers.
[ 2015.10.10 03:56:51 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote nods to THal and escorts Shalee inside.
[ 2015.10.10 03:58:15 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Well I have suits on my ship. I'll change there.
[ 2015.10.10 03:58:19 ] Thal Vadam > /emote turns to Sahriah "We can get environment suits pretty easy"
[ 2015.10.10 03:58:25 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > Just let me know when ready and I can take everyone up.
[ 2015.10.10 03:58:39 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods "I'll use my armor"
[ 2015.10.10 03:58:44 ] Sahriah BloodStone > "I have my own on my ship. What is the destination?"
[ 2015.10.10 03:58:55 ] Thal Vadam > "Esescama 9"
[ 2015.10.10 03:59:51 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote returns a few moments later dressed in cream colored pants tucked into boots, a long sleeved shirt beneath a tunic.
[ 2015.10.10 04:00:06 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote nods. "Arlight, I can probably meet you there."
[ 2015.10.10 04:00:15 ] Tigerfish Torpedo > /emote returns alongside her.
[ 2015.10.10 04:00:46 ] Thal Vadam > "Very well, as soon as Tiger and Reginald return we'll be off"
[ 2015.10.10 04:00:58 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote returns to the Terrace wearing thermals that nonetheless bear his crest, which is stylized to incorporate the Cerra family's.
[ 2015.10.10 04:01:09 ] Thal Vadam > /emote nods and smiles at Shalee and Tiger
[ 2015.10.10 04:01:38 ] Thal Vadam > "Well...That's everyone"
[ 2015.10.10 04:01:44 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote can feel the sweat beading on the back of her neck from the warmth of her clothing in such humid tropical weather. "When do we leave?"
[ 2015.10.10 04:02:03 ] Thal Vadam > /emote turns to the shuttles "Let's be off"
[ 2015.10.10 04:03:03 ] Lunarisse Aspenstar > /emote nods and proceeds.
[ 2015.10.10 04:03:07 ] Sahriah BloodStone > /emote heads towards her own shuttle
[ 2015.10.10 04:03:16 ] Reginald Sakakibara > /emote follows the group, taking out his neocom to read the environmental readouts on the planet they're visiting.
[ 2015.10.10 04:06:34 ] Shalee Lianne > /emote follows after Tiger and the rest of the ScoobyDoo gang.
