Re: Free Man's War

The thunderous din grew louder, then the sound of several consecutive explosions pierced the treetops, followed by distant thuds that made the ground vibrate. "Ever heard of the Cursed Sons?" Lee sounded apprehensive. A ghostly moan echoed through the forest. Warhorns. Powerful speakers that could b...

Re: Free Man's War

The shaman wrapped his arms around his chest and grabbed two of the many edges of his carapace. "This creature is a harbinger of death." he said in a low voice. "It should not be here." "But Hisshen made peace-" "I'm burying Hisshen tonight. And many others." "It saved-" The shaman held up a claw. "...

Re: Free Man's War

As Gill spoke, his helmet spat the hissing, chattering language of the blue people, though it wasn't nearly as smooth as their natural speech. The shaman didn't move or speak for a while. "You killed the old ksishe." Its words were translated as it spoke. "How did you do this?" The crowd began to mu...

Re: Galvanic Current

Dr. Stein pushed away from the wall when he heard the first pod door release. With his arms stretched out in front of him, he flew through the cabin like an obscene missile. His trajectory was perfect, and he wrapped his arms around the man's mid torso. "Ha ha! Oh, my friend! How are you?! How are y...

Re: Free Man's War

"Yes, yes, good, good!" the Doctor yelled. "I and some others will come after you've confirmed that the translator functions properly! It'll work as soon as we implement it into our network, and should translate both ways. Diction may be off, but it should let you understand, and be understood. To a...

Re: Galvanic Current

"Of course you expect me to find clothes and put them on in a minute." A whole sentence, that was a good sign. At least, it was a good sign if he actually said it, which he did. He drifted around the room, pondering the undergarments that he'd thrown... somewhere before he'd clocked out for four mon...

Re: Free Man's War

"Magnificent." Rhode said wistfully through comms. "Dr. Coval is analyzing the language now, should have a translator ready soon!" There was a rustle and a chitter among the crowd. The youngling blue hissed to the others, and tugged at Gill's hand. It gestured toward the deep forest and watched Gill...

Re: Galvanic Current

As soon as Dr. Stein could open his eyes, he bolted from the pod. At least, he tried his hardest to bolt from the pod, and ended up slowly drifting through the air on a collision course with a bulkhead in a partial fetal position. It felt like his blood was goo, and his muscles, bones, and organs we...

Re: Free Man's War

sorry, can't write a long post. Sure would be a nice time for Dayn to jump in. The beast was still on the forest floor, leaking coffee-colored blood and twitching. Its head was so large that its eyes were level with Gill's. Chen walked to the screaming lizard creature. Its pelvic cavity was open whe...

Re: Free Man's War

Four rounds struck the creature's leg, one near the knee. Brown fluid poured from the wounds. It hissed at the pain, a sound not dissimilar to a landslide. It began to limp, but the thing was almost as long as the clearing's diameter. "We're watching, kid." Lee said, "Don't get near that thing, just...

Re: Free Man's War

The blue creatures' apparent anxiety grew as a rattling hiss emanated from the elder rider in the center. It spread its arms apart, then slowly drew the white club from its hip and held it ceremoniously. The club's surface was marked with deep carvings similar to those on its owner's skin, and there...

Re: Free Man's War

There was a soft rustling as the gathered blue people collectively took a step back away from the clearing. Some raised their weapons, some made an apprehensive half-turn toward the safety of the dark forest, but the furry, lizard-like creature continued forward. When it reached the center of the cl...

Re: Free Man's War

There was relatively little undergrowth in the forest, though the roots of the trees often rose several centimeters from the ground, and made it uneven. A minute after he entered the forest, Gill nearly ran into Chen at the edge of a large clearing. She was standing absolutely still, with her gun dr...

Re: Free Man's War

"Investigate!" Rhode's voice echoed through Gill's helmet. "We can't set up camp until we've secured this area!" The forest seemed to grow still and silent. Lee and the doctor were searching the coast, and Chen didn't have much in the way of pep talks. Or any other kind of talk. Perception roll: 1. ...
