Badass Dragon Scavengers of the Void - Round 8 - Strangeways, Here We Come


#1

The crew returns from the Bogey with a shockingly good haul. Naughty Boy manages to lead everyone into and back out of the maze without much ado but finds his own journey somewhat more difficult as blinky lights across several HUDs become too difficult to track. Sweetness manages to guide the crew through a diabolical collection of biological booby traps, pointing out to unwary explorers any number of acid jets, stinging projections, and parasitic grabbers. Others are just too subtle, too swift, or too alien to be bounded by her intense inquiries and several scavengers are caught unawares.

Previously theoretical, rare RED globs are discovered in the Unsettling Pocket. The Scholars immediately begin to swap hypotheses as to how the substance might behave…

In a more direct approach, the Diggers manage to cut glistening lumps of GOLD and GREEN from the side of beast as Goldie’s blaster blazes with a strange new light. The entire ship shudders and twitches under the assault…

But the sortie is not without incident. Only 16 scavengers return to the Coleridge.

"Aw, sonofabitch. And here my last words to him were a fat joke.

Now I gotta live for two.

(Just like he ate for two.)"

“Boss, there you go, sayin’ that thing you’re thinkin’ again.”

“Shaddap. I’m grievin’.”

Goodbye Whiskers Man
Though I never knew you Well
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the Air Lock
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the Coleridge
And they made you change your name

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the void
Never knowing who to cling to
When the Eels set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a calf
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Loneliness was tough
The toughest role you ever played
Hollywood made a Scavenger
And Juice was the price you paid
Even when you died
Oh the press still hounded you
All the papers had to say
Was that Whiskers was found in the nude

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the void
Never knowing who to cling to
When the Eels set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a calf
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

Goodbye Whisker Man
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
Goodbye Sealo Lion
From the young moose in the twenty second row
Who sees you as something more than mammal
More than just our Whiskers SeaLion

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the void
Never knowing who to cling to
When the Eels set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a calf
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did

I call dibs on his LIDAR.

It’s what he would have wanted.


#7

What’s market value on some fine Corinthian GREEN? This moose be all flush with the green but low on the Juice.

The large Ungulate from Calgary Prime might be willing to part with a green for the right price. Juice fo’ da Moose, eh?

After the wake, naturally.


#8

##RESPONSE

My empathy feedback loops suggest I should activate the “grieving” biologics – which is why I keep biochemical pathways sequestered. Space Lobsters don’t grieve our dead. We eat them.

Seelio should have taken the no damage mission. He had the juice. As my Foster AI used to tell me,
“If you can’t be a good example, you can at least be a horrible warning”.

Learn from Whisker’s costly example:

HEED YOUR HP

That concludes the wake for me.


Great Work Scavengers (at least those that stayed alive).

TexASS, Professor, and Shiny find themselves in possession of the precious RED. which is super-duper good for repairing the ship.

Eight Scavengers have GOLD

Perfectly Normal
Princess Pricklepants
Goldie
Professor
Li'l Smokey
Princess
Princess Jabbers
Naughty Boy

GOLD can be used either of two ways: repairing the ship, or bringing one’s own HP back to the maximum. It looks like we may be three gold from getting the REPAIR BAY working again; however, four scavengers are running dangerously low on HP:

10 Tex ASS
14 Princess Jabbers
29 Princess Pricklpants
33 Professor

We have enough gold to both repair the ship and let some of our most damaged scavengers fully heal.

Last week GOLD given to the ship before the orders came out resulted in 100 U, GLO, and a more capable ship. Would some of you GOLD possessors, especially the ones in better health, consider transferring your GOLD to the Coleridge so the rest of us can repair?

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. Frederick Douglass

I’m a big fan of helping the greater good, especially when the greater good is keeping me alive.

“Oh whoa, just look at all this stuff! All that GOLD and GREEN and…hold the phone, is that RED? And I thought the other globs were strange? This here RED takes the cake.”

“GOLD globs can still be put to fixing the Coleridge, but I can only authorize a 75Ʉ payout on them at this time. One GOLD should be able to either get an offline system into an online state or repair some of the damage to a system. If you donate a GOLD glob, just let me know where you’d like it applied. If you want to leave it up to me, that’s fine too - I’ll address the most critical systems first. Just let me know if you want to used your GOLD to get us voidworthy again and I’ll do the rest.”

“RED. Boy howdy, this stuff is weird! Reconstruction, reanimation, recombobulation, the works! It can do several things:”

  1. It acts as a combination of GREEN and GOLD if you use it on yourself."

    USE RED

This appears to be equivalent to:

USE GOLD
USE GREEN <item> <juice>+50

For example, this means that USE RED Blaster 50 would be equivalent to both:
USE GREEN Blaster 100
and
USE GOLD

  1. If in your possession on a mission, it will restore 65HP the instant that your HP reaches 0. The ultimate in life insurance!

  2. If you donate it to repair the Coleridge, I have no idea what will happen. It should work at least as well as two GOLD globs, but it’s difficult to tell how this stuff will interact with the digital subsystems on the Coleridge. Hard to be sure, but it may even be detrimental. I can’t guarantee the results. You’ll receive 200Ʉ and GLO+2 if you select this option.

“I’m feeding all this data back into the Coleridge for mission assessment. We’ll have a selection available ASAP. Talk amongst yourselves in the meantime!”

Oh, me? Sure, sure. I never liked the look of gold anyway.

Ugh. Creepy.


#12

Poor Whiskers. It was shiny. I know.

To Whiskers.

And a round for the crew:

You have to know where your monocle is, and you have to know where the Space Whales and Space Sharks are.

Now let’s get that repair bay online @Kassandra. I’m donating my GOLD for repairs.

I also think there was an accounting error in my favor during the transmorgification. Though I don’t mind the results at all.


#15

Here you go @Kassandra, take my GOLD glob for repairs. It’s kind of freaking me out.


#16

Phew, you’re not kidding. Updated! Thanks for mentioning that - with the manual edits on top of the automated mechanics, I was bound to miss a few things.


#17

You’re a sassy gal, @Kassandra, I bet this GOLD will look lovely on you.

“Repair bay it is, Goldie! Let’s get that devil back in order. I keep forgetting you guys need to do things like breathe air.”

[Recently powered on scullerybots cheerfully scurry up to you and rush the glob off to the Repair Bay to get repairs online. ( +75Ʉ )]

Whiskers is gone?

Cheers to you, @SeaLion. As my packmembers say: May your barks echo across the ages.

I am curious as to what you would consider a mission failure.

Mr. Rump eyes the space lobster nervously as he hands over his GOLD to the ship’s purser. “Don’t even START, cranky claws. I’m handing it over. I will make this Ship Great Again. My GOLD, MY decision.”

Mr. Rump then flops down on the deck, and starts smooshing his GREEN in with his BLUE, muttering softly to himself…
mumble mumble watching me from the beginning. abuse of power, mark my words *mumble hrrmmmhhhrrrrrmmm Altairgate murmur mumble Mac RRRrrrtheee grumble BLUE and GREEN make GOLD?
