Badass Space Dragon 2.0 - Round 5 - Severance


#1

Hoog: Well, the coordinates are right but there ain’t nuthin’ here.
Klook: The instructions say we…
Hoog: WAAh!! REVERSE! REVERSE!!!

A sold wall of stone and metal shimmer into sight, filling the bridge viewport of the small shipping vessel. The Royal Bowler uncloaks, an immense obsidian asteroid outfitted with an array of impressive weaponry.

Klook: Well, I’ll be dipped in honeywine, that is a damned impressive hat shop.


*Meanwhile, back at Ella’s…

Kangot, a stern, cybernetic space moose, reports:

Kangot: The report from the cube farm was costly, we lost ships.

Ella: We should have prepared them better.

Kangot: Yes. We’ll have a more advanced pit crew in operation next week… if there’s anything left of these ships to repair.

Ella: Mondo donated to their banking efforts, I would have preferred that he just give us the money directly but I think he wants to test them.

Kangot: Or maybe he’s testing you.

Ella: Either way, this is not a time for games, the galaxy is about to catch fire.

Kangot: There was the matter of some tampering with our shipments, it looks like the Ignoble Calumnie has absconded with a package.

Ella: Remove from approved shippers and see about replacing the "hat" that was stolen.

Additional Notes:
With great effort, you break the seal on the hat box and discover a strange crystal. It makes a low humming sound, it reminds you of something, a song you've heard somewhere but can't quite place. You put the crystal on your head, it has no effect.

Cosmosword HP 0/99

Looks like a typo to me, should be 51, I think? 47 - 48 + 50 +2.

Our fleet’s getting a bit short handed, let’s not add to it.

The Wildfire, Matango’s Revenge, Flying Chemex, HMS Gargle Blaster, Startlingly Improbable, Truck With Beer and Space Apnea have been nullified by today’s guest NPC.

I am a vastly confused neural complex of stardust held together by various nuclear forces. The ships suddenly become aware that they are mere collections of matter trickling through a cold uncaring universe.

Thank you to Vi Hart for helping me clear the rolls.


#8

Fixed.


#9

Minor correction: Had 5 Grit before the concert! Grit me up to 6 at your convenience, Boss!

And hey, Mackey @funruly… jussst what kind of missschief have you gotten into with your curiosssity and your crowbar?


#10

He’s got himself an Infinity Gem.

Is Charybdis part of the MCU?


#11

Aaaaaggghhh!!! Ssssay it ain’t sssso!


#12

Natasha throw open books to make clear which bits belong to who:

Audacious Blip funds = b159.8333 (mission success + balance on hand at start of mission)

Community Bank funds = b158.8000 (Angel funding from Don Mondo + seed funds not disbursed at start of mission)

Natasha not remember when this happen, but very grateful and will pay for at whatever going rate was :sun_with_face:

Board of directors of community bank set interest rate at 10% for loan repayments, so Natasha extend benefit of lower interest rate to private loan negotiated with @gwwar

From each according to ability, to each according to need.


#13

Let us all pause a moment to mark the passing of one of Charybdis most important, if under-appreciated, artists’ collectives.

When the history of this time is written, the Color Bomb’s aesthetics and S’Rah Kline’s manifesto will attract critical attention far beyond this two line mention in the official chronicles.

HouseBlessings upon you, @Agfish

The Somewhat Broken Heart slips silently into dry-dock. Home again, home again, jiggedy-jig.

“YESSSSS!”

+++ Standing orders: +++

All crew on shore leave to drink only beverages with little black flags in them. To honor the fallen. See Culture Officer (and Flag Boy, natch) for Little Black Flag Disbursement.

All crew on shore leave wishing to imbibe must first buy a drink for Commodore Laszlo (@messana), or one of his crew.

Happily, for a refreshing change, Quirky pops open the OmniPay™.

“Now. First things first. Gents, here’s your investment…"

“…plusss…”

"… a little something for your troubles. If that’s not to your liking, talk to me. And if you should find yourself in need, Quirky and the Somewhat are at your ssservice.”

Quirky lurches proudly to the bar, flashes his rosy dewlap, and orders four Drinks With Little Black Flags.


#15

Yes! I attribute this unexpected result to those fantastically funky panels that @Donald_Petersen sent my way. Your next round (or three) is on me!


Whoa! I was upset with Unizone, too, but… …did we have a terrorist in our midst?! I suppose I should avoid speculation until the results are in, perhaps it was an accident. I know that installation crew there could be a bit sloppy at times. I swear I saw one smoking near the munitions, once. I mean, really, who smokes anymore!


#16

Community Bank updated balance = b202.8000
Quirky’s loan = paid in full.


#17

You say “terrorist”. I say “performance artist”.


#18

No — artists.

Far more dangerous


#19

Very generous Natasha, but a deal is a deal. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

On the way back from the battle with Nilah heading back towards Duck’s Pond, the Cosmosword inexplicably blinks out of existence, and moments later, back in again. An sense of some awareness of vast confusion falls on the crew.

Browf: “Status report. What happened just then?”

+ I TASTE GEOMETRY. TASTES LIKE HEXAFLEXAGON. +

Browf: “I don’t feel dead. And what’s a hexaflexagon? Sounds like android yoga.”

+ DEBUGGING... + 
+ I'M REALLY SORRY, BROWF, BUT I CAN'T TAKE REQUESTS RIGHT NOW. +
+ PLEASE TRY AGAIN IN A LITTLE WHILE. +

Dakota: “Huh. I’ve never seen an AI behave like that. If I had to guess, whatever happened to us caused a little corruption in her state-machine.”

+ *JINGLE* + 
+ SORRY ABOUT THAT. IT SEEMS WE WERE "CUT AND PASTE" THROUGH SPACE AND TIME. +
+ CORRECTION: JUST TIME. ONLY MOMENTS OF TIME. +

Browf: “Okaaaay… Is anything damaged?”

+ NEGATIVE. HULL INTEGRITY REMAINS AT 51%. ALL OTHER SYSTEMS ARE NOW NOMINAL. +

+ UNIZONE PARTS STORE DESTROYED BY SHIP *COLOR BOMB* SELF-DESTRUCT SEQUENCE. *

Browf: " … "
