Cross - Real VaniaCross feels a cold metal hand take his He sees Vania smiling widely as her human arm rearranges her heart she pulls Cross into a big hug and flips them off the roof "HA HA this is life " they fall twelve stories and land on the ground with enough force to crush Cross's legs but starry void shields him Vania drags Cross into Declan's bar letting go of Cross once in the building "DECLAN!" Declan shoots out of the kitchen "YES! lass " Vania grips her human arm with her cyberarm crushing the joint "You've a promise to keep man go get it" Declan jumps for joy and cheers so loud that several waitresses figure out what's happened and rush to assemble a area for surgery Declan goes in the back returning with a refrigerated container when he opens it Cross see's a beautifully crafted Cyberarm with a hole in the for arm clearly there for a khaydarin the rest of the arm is elegant not foraged for war but still foraged out of pulse alloy and accented by gold Vania lifts it up "This was a gift to me that Declan worked hard for time it's used" she the sets it back down and rips her human arm clean off laughing like a maniac in joy " THIS! THIS! THIS IS PAIN I'D FORGOTTEN IT" Declan sits her down cleaning the mess of shattered bone and tissue smoothing it and then installing the new shoulder Vania enjoying the forgotten sensation what Cross said to her on the roof had an exponential effect she sobered up and felt again ten minutes of Declan working hard pays off as Vania now has a shiny new arm but her human arm lays on the floor Lily picking it up"What do we do with this" Vania looks down in disgust "Get rid of it i took to many lives with that hand i'm starting over with this one" Vania touches her new arm and its engulfed by her void changing to match the other in colour it's slot for a khaydarin crystal remaining "Sorry Declan gold aint my thing" Declan smiles "It's good lass just put it to good use" Vania Smiles and bobs abit in agreement "right let go get this bastard uncle you and me will storm the foyer Dad you follow along with these when i call " she draws her twin pistols "they compress psionic waves and use them for ammo no reload should be your speed " Lily starts jumping "what's my job sis " Vania laughs "The most important one you have complete access to the beuford hotel system right like we discussed cause that is important i want you to be are eyes and get those drones ready oh and auntie stay here with my sister and Declan Al's goons are bound to show Waitresses go home please" the waitresses oblige gladly "right let's go" Vania alters her new arm to share the same claws as her other and head outside a whistle echoing as a motorcycle with sidecar rolls up "HA! no one found it" she gets on excitedly "uncle your in the sidecar Dad you ride behind me" they ride for a good half hour Vania excitedly screaming the whole way that she missed sensations when they arrive at the beuford a valet tries taking the motorcycle and Vania very quickly dispatches him they enter the foyer and several dosen security personnel swarm them Xels minigun making short work of the closer ones before he gets into it and starts bashing skulls together as they get too close Cross finds Vanias pistols to be quite the work of art both capable of silently dispatching assalents but also beautiful a masterful weave of psionics and material things the receptionist tells them what floor and room to Find Al on and they get their with few problems mostly thanks to Vanias new found control and better use of her powers just before entering Al's room Vania slots the khaydarin crystal she has into it then kicking in the door Al sat comfortably on the couch sipping a drink "Well you came back faster than expected" he clearly refers to Vania there is a surge of psionic energy and Al levitates held by Vania "Dad how should he die shall i melt his brain or set him in my pocket dimension let the folks he put in there play with him " a rift opens in the air next of Al but he staggers out a sentence "W-W-W-wait let's not be hasty Violet " in an instance he screams "MY name is Vania Not that god forsaken birth name my Trash parents gave me" Al then stops screaming "still if i die who funds the guild most of the prominent backers left when they spoke out against Mr.Cross being a renegade" Vania nods "your bargaining for your life and for it Dad think of the slowest way to kill him I want to know he's paid for both his and my sins" at this several chains bind him created from nothing "Oh right before i let these gents have their way with you i have an eye to collect " she then mutilates his face taking one of his eyes "He's all yours boys i'll be in the vault down the hall come get me when your done"

Yasir bin Abadard XXIV - Back to the Profit Margin
right-aligned image

Knowing his way around Million Credit (or more) Deals, Yasir was good with numbers!
So calculating just how many thugs were surrounding him, was child's play!
He also knew how to guesstimate a person's net wealth, based on their appearances, and these people's were sorely lacking.
An idea popped into his greedy head.
"How much do you reckon you earn over a year!" Yasir
Dice Diplomacy check:
2d20+12kh1 (6, 4 (keeping 6) )+12 Total = 18
said to the thug's obvious leader. "Because robbery through pure combat strength is economically and strategically infeasible with such a large group."
"Wow!" Said the Leader, surprised at this turnaround. "I was honestly expecting something more like "Don't kill me.""
"But it's true." Continued the Merchant. "Beating people up and taking their stuff will never work out for you in the long run."
Blinks of confusion all round.
"It's because of the wealth disparity in society, really. Everyone of a certain societal status has a generic degree of wealth, and few people of a lower level can achieve the same amount of riches without help from above...well, not easily anyway. That's why you don't see regular folks with sniper rifles or other military grade hardware."
A few of the thugs are frowning at their own weapons, which Yasir idly noted to be "hastilly made crap!
The Merchant continued.
"Therefore, anyone worth robbing is powerful enough to defend themselves against your attacks, or will have a security detail close by, and anyone weak enough to fall prey probably doesn't have any stuff worth stealing."
The leader tried to make a counter-argument, but his heart clearly wasn't in it.
"Nice idea, fancy-pants, but you're clearly just a rich guy who wandered into the wrong part o' town! Those clothes your wearing mark you as...*gulp*"
The holoprojector disengaged with a *crackle*, showing the nightmare that had been hidden.
"Take myself, for example." Yasir said, acting as though the man had not spoken. "Your team might defeat me at this point, but the sale price of my gear is a mere pittance compared to the cost of food, equipment, and other expenses for a group your size, nd you can be damn sure I would take take a few of your men down with me. So that leaves you needing to face a potentially deadly encounter—like me—every week just to maintain the status quo."
Something close to an epiphany seemed to be happening in the leaders head.
"And if we want to make a decent profit..."
"...you're talking about facing groups of people even my associates would have to run away from, which is frankly suicidal!"
"So what? Are you telling us to just "give up crime, and live an honest life?!""
"NO!" Exclaimed Yasir. "I'm saying you should take up a more PROFITABLE crime!"
He leans in, a conspiratorial look on his face.
"Now tell me, have you ever considered getting into.....SMUGGLING?"

On the Hunt
right-aligned image

As terrified as he should have been when Vania flipped them both off the edge of the building, Cross is calm. He had expected the girl to make a move of some kind like this and is confident she will protect them both, she may not value her own life but he knows she values his. The following hour is almost a blur as he switches into business mode, checking his weaponry automatically and planning as Vania undergoes makeshift surgery in the bar, he isn't surprised Declan has medical expertise, Vania does seem to surround herself with oddly capable people. even if most of those people turn out to be scum who need squashing like a ice-bug.

The assault on Beuford's building goes off alot smoother than he had hoped, their rapid retaliation catching them by surprise and the overwhelming force Vania and Xelfor bring to bear on them is just too much for the defence forces in the building to handle. Cross follows along and does what he does best, provides Overwatch and using the exquisite pistols provided by Vania, he picks off any stragglers and targets who get too close to his family, His growing psychic power flashing through the focusing pistols in his hands to lance out with pinpoint accuracy and decimate his targets.

Finding Beuford, Cross isn't surprised to see how calm and arrogantly confident he appears to be but there is no mistaking the fear in his eyes when Vania enters the room, her own rage and power remarkably well controlled as she harmlessly picks up and restrains the man who is still trying to make deals and manipulate the situation. his facade of control soon slipping though as he realises just how much trouble he is truly in, even going so far as to bring the fate of the guild into it

Cross is strangely proud to hear how the guild had his back, willing to lose patrons and income to defend his name. He knows the guild has its own wealth and can handle being without patrons for a while. Despite the threats of men like Beuford, there are always people who need the guild and need people found and hunted so Cross wasn't concerned about the Guilds welfare. it had existed long before him and would continue long after he had taken his final hunt.

What did surprise him though was Vania giving up the kill. she had taken the mans eye as she promised she would but was leaving the kill to him. he couldn't help smiling, perhaps she was finally ready to put her past behind her and move on with her life anew. with Xel watching the door, Cross waited for Vania to leave before making his way over to Alfred Heckler Beuford, his movements slow, his face calm, his voice soft and even as he slipped the pistols back into their holsters and slowly drew his knife.

The large hunting knife was old, archaic even but well crafted and still honed to a razors edge. it had dispatched many a creature in its time and skinned and quartered them all with ease. Cross was clinical and cold as he used that blade on the man as he spoke, Severing the Achilles tendons at both his ankles, permanently removing the mans ability to stand and walk

"Thank you for bringing up the Guild Mr Beuford, I am not concerned with them surviving without your considerable wealth, though i do find it unusual that a man in your position would not take more stock in their advice. I know they have extensive files on me in their database, as they do all their members so you must have read about just what i am capable of doing. you must have realised just how far i would go to protect my family and how i always keep my word"

Cross then moved to the mans hands, slitting open the webbing between his thumbs and forefinger, sliding the blade down over the back of his hands, slicing through the nerves and tendons of each finger, his hands now useless for holding anything ever again

"I warned you what would happen if you came for my family again Alfred, so you knew i am a man of my word. yet you came for Vania anyway. did you truly believe your wealth would be any deterrent for me? That i would not follow through on what i promised you?"

Stepping back, Cross pulled the handkerchief from the mans suit and cleaned his knife as he flicked his comms to the Girls private channel, contacting Vania in the room down the hall

"Sweetheart, please will you release the chains holding Alfred up. He isn't going anywhere now and i will not kill a bound man. even one as deserving as he is"

After only a few moments, the chains holding Alfred aloft disappeared and the man dropped to the group, his disabled limbs no longer able to support him as he fell to the ground. Stepping forward, Cross knelt in front of the bleeding man and lifted his head, fingers curling in his hair to lift his remaining eye level with Cross's own.

"You may think what i am doing to you is cruel Alfred, but i promise you that this is a mercy compared to what i am capable of and what you deserve. I have no joy of killing despite what you think, but i wont lie to you and say i wont take any pleasure in ending you for what you did to my family. I warned you that if we met again mine would be the last face you would ever saw and i always keep my word. Goodbye Mr Beuford"

With a slow even pressure, Cross pressed the tip of his knife to the side of Alfred's neck, at the soft tissue beneath his ear where the jaw meets the neck, the wide hunting blade held horizontally, the blade sliding easily through flesh and sinew, sliding in and upwards to sever the spinal column at the top of the neck, as well as severing the carotid artery and slicing deep into the brain stem and the cerebellum, for the briefest moment Alfred was still alive he could feel his entire body fall limp as he lost all conscious control and feeling in his body, even his autonomic responses were stopped as his brain stem was pierced, his heart stopped beating and the blood stopped pumping through his body, the electrical impulses that controlled his ability to scream out in pain stopped and he was silent as the last moments of his life flashed across his eyes, eyes which had also stopped transmitting the visual signals to his brain as if a light switch had just been flipped. his final fleeting moments were black and eerie quiet.

Cross would normally at this moment, slowly slide the blade back out again and gently lay his prey to the ground but he was unable to control a momentary wave of hatred for this man flash through his brain and he twisted the wide blade around almost 90 degrees before pulling it out roughly and dropped this body to the ground, taking a moment to catch a breath when he realised he had held his own as he slipped the blade into the man before cleaning his knife again and standing, leaving the man to bleed on the floor before turning to Xel

"We should go see what mischief Vania's got up to. She mentioned a vault?"

Yasirthe thug leader looks at Yasir after several moments of a huddle with his boys "your offering us a job right cause all we expect from that is food, better clothes and equipment and you've got some loyal boys to do the work for you" taking some time to hash out pay as well they settle on a monthly paycheck of one thousand credits each (with the zerg corpses and organs yasir was going to sell he could pay them for several years) food bed and equipment was a taken care of thing with Lily able to produce weapons and armor like they are tooth pick and without even sweating and the troop transport had more bed than were filled and he was certain that the back of the cargo hold could come off and be used as a smuggling transport with his new hand secured Yasir moves forward getting to the warehouse and opening it rather quickly as one of the thugs he hired was a locksmith by trade before his shop was taken by the dominion for use as a storage house inside alloy crates are stacked high armor and weapon racks line the back wall filled with high grade military munitions and weapons by count he finds
20 B-2 High-Cal LMGs 10 Hailstorm launchers and 15 CPO-7 Salamander flamethrowers all In perfect condition and ready to go the thugs at his orders arm themselves with five taking the flamethrowers 5 taking lauchers and 10 with LMGs clearly aware of Yasir's being nearly unbreakable they get to work taking inventory of the warhouse (detailed in yasir's next post as i had though he would fight the thugs oops so got to put a list together)


Cross - The Vault of the Beuford family nameAs Cross enters the vault Xel who had been rather quiet so far spoke "Cross can you find somethin for Mari I'm gonna keep watch" looking round The contents of which is clearly collected by several scummy generations Vania is about twenty feet in trying to break some reinforced glass getting closer tears stream down her face her new cyberarm beating against the glass her old one she made from her void now on the floor looking through the glass Cross see a gnarly cyberarm the elbow ends in a sharp point the knuckles are spiked and the fingers clawed it's clear Vania made this but why it must hide something she needs moving his sobbing daughter aside and calling on lily to send a small drone to them one arrives nearly instantly via teleport and it cuts the glass with a simple plasma torch once open the drone leaves again via teleport but not before passing Cross a password protected drive the password written on a napkin activating the drive and having Rose unlock it and process the info it was lily encryptedly telling Cross she made a boo boo and activated her mega shipyard so the dreadnought is finished and enroute her, Declan and Mari will be moving there soon as the bar was bombed by men from the dominion who supported the Beufords taking this info Cross and Rose figure they have a week before they have to call in Lily's assault army's and the specialized projects she was working on to start rebellion and then Cross remembers Vania and the arm retrieving it for Vania Cross can tell why she desperately was trying to get it the arm was made masterfully even though he's untrained he can tell the arm is fashioned from light alloys that are harder that protoss pulse alloy the strongest alloy currently employed not only is it tough but light it's also the perfect dimensions for Vanias body like the one Declan just gave her written across the arm however is a single word the name that Al used in the previous room Violet it's been written in a cursive font in silver handing Vania the arm it immediately jumps to her cyberarm socket once settled in the socket the arms plates project out for a moment levitating around a khaydarin crystal core that shifts between colour constantly it then reassembles the name having been removed continuing on while Vania gathers herself Cross finds many interesting things from esoteric arcane enhanced weapons to literal magic staffs but a simple gold ring catches his eye it's labeled as a ring of disguise self greater capable of using magic to alter the users appearance using illusions perfect for Mari but amazingly Vania tells him it's a safe items she's used before and removed several curses from but for safety's sake she give it a once over to remove any unwanted effects the other thing catching Cross's eye is a large sniper mounted on the wall Vania gets it down for him "This bad boy can pierce through protoss carriers with relative simple ease though it need a massive power source i think my sisters specialized project would be a sufficient power source and more capable of using it" and Vania is right the weapon is measures 15 feet in length and clearly fires shells the weigh 10 pounds or more returning to the what's left of the
bar Lily having brought the Ice raven in to city limits as a place to shelter from a heavy rain that's starting but they also hear a thunder from City center a rainbow sparkling smoke seen on Lily's observation drones earning Vania both Mari and Xel's anger let alone Cross's

Aftermath
right-aligned image

Finding his way to the Vault, Cross is amazed by the sheer size of the collection. As a man who is used to carrying very little on a daily basis and who's entire apartments collection of personal effects could fit into one small box, the variety and quantity of the vaults contents is just staggering. such a waste of wealth hoarded away, what could any one man want with so much?

As his eyes scanned the collection, he realised there was enough wealth here to keep his ever growing family in luxury for generations, his daughters would never have to work a day in their lives and he could likely keep the Guild running as a patron for generations with this wealth but he had no clue how to even begin to liquidate this much assorted ephemera. Yasir would be like a child in a candy shop he was sure but right now he trusted that man as far as he could throw Xel.

Finding Vania, he gives her a hug and moves her aside, retrieving the item she wanted with Snowlily's help and after Rose passes on her message he hurries them along out of the vault, Collecting the Arcane Ring for Mari and the Rifle for himself along with its ammunition which Vania kindly carries in the Void Cache as it is far too bulky for them to carry quickly. Just as he is about to leave the Vault, his eyes catch a glint of shiny metal on a shelf by the door. A small wooden box with its lid open, Inside are 4 neatly stacked rows of Golden Metal bars, each as long as his hand though half as wide and perhaps the thickness of his finger, 5 bars to each stack with a single loose bar resting on the top, preventing the lid of the box being closed. 21 bars in total of a golden metal with an almost rainbow hue in certain angles of the light.

Slipping the loose bar into his jacket pocket, Cross snaps the lid of the box closed and tucks it under his arm as he leaves, these he can liquidate easily enough and should provide a nice boost to the girls trust funds along with the upcoming bounty on the Specter

Returning to the Bar, or the location Declan's bar used to be, Cross found the Ice Raven occupying the space and ducked inside, depositing the Box in his quarters before finding the others in the common room, slipping Xel the ring he found for Mari before joining Snowlily as she monitors her drones, giving her a quick hug and kiss on the forehead before sitting and watching the feed on the monitors Snowlily has projected the drone feed too.

Watching the camera's zooming in on the sparkling rainbow smoke from the City centre. Pinching the bridge of his nose for a moment as he closed his eyes, he doesn't even need to look to confirm it, he knows what was in that location, he had been there less than 30 minutes ago. He can see the angry looks Xel and Mari are giving Vania, luckily their angry shouts and admonishments are directed into the air and not directly at the girl. taking a deep breath Cross turns to his eldest child

"Sweetheart, I know why you felt that was necessary but we are trying to NOT do anything that makes people think the Emperor is telling the truth ok?"

Cross - Snowlily Aurora CrossVania laughs as she lights a cigarette "I wish blowing the Beuford up was my plan" she gestures to the youngest of the siblings "She's the brains for most of my mischief as of present she may be a half pint but she has some real tactical vision"she ruffles her sisters white hair leaving the rest to the younger sibling "I looked into dominion news broadcasting they blaming gangwars not us as are present location is yet to reach the vast majority of people" lily closes her holographic drone monitoring screens and moves to the cockpit "I used my orbital satellites to find a drop point for equipment, and the assault armies the dreadnought is in orbit using a cloaking field but something hit on of the external projectors so it can hold the cloak for much longer we have maybe a few hours so we have to move there now so i can prolong it and let Mr. Merchant handle some things and the boys from the tank have some fun. Vania had an alert from a old location of hers so she's off to investigate and she promised to make as little commotion as possible " lily takes Cross and all aboard the raven into orbit using a orbital set of acceleration rings to make quick work of the travel they arrive in orbit over a abandoned assembly plant small clusters of light denote communities of homeless living there and as they make approach Cross can see a massive and sleek dreadnought the front of the nose is open a divider force field keeping it pressurized the field decativates and a better idea of the sheer size it revealed the ship could fit several protoss mother ships inside witch usually cause some issues of dwarfing even the emperor's augustgrad battleships the largest ship in the royal navy "oh daddy don't worry i isolated the location of the specter you are after i have a artillery unit and assault team all waiting your arrival as I have a lack of command drones so i have listed you, auntie and uncle as commanders the rest of are little group has been whitelisted to prevent any accidents unlike dominion robotics that can go and reject their master mine have mild free thought to encourage tactical growth so they do feel and are sentient and only have the inclination to follow directives and serve unquestioningly i have them set up at a rendezvous point for you and you can feel free to get revenge on my behalf as i have a lot of magengemt to get done as well as maintaining the cloak" she give him direction to a teleport room once the raven is docked and the coordinates are pre loaded he also finds that the cat has been acquired by her via long range teleportation allowing him to restock and the like before heading out


OOCso things may seem like they are moving rather fast but most of this happened in the time span it took Yasir to get to and sort through Vanias warehouse and as for the chief and his companion they having no prior knowledge of the world would have take about this long to find the street racing area but are othewise fine

Yasir bin Abadard XXIV - Back to the Profit Margin
right-aligned image

Yasir smiled, as the deal with his new workforce was made. The cost of looking after them was pitiful next to the the amount of credits he could reap with their assistance.
"Done, and done!" He says. "Play right by me, and I'll play right by you. I'll make sure you're well taken care of, and every time I get a payday, I'll make sure you all get a juicy bonus too!"
None of that was a lie, as it was standard practice for any Consortium of New Druma to look after their employees, and offer a bonus scheme based on company profits.

He was reassured that he had made the right decision when the locksmith opened up the warehouse far quicker than Yasir could have alone.
He looked inside.
"Woohoo!" He breathed. "It looks like "Payday" may be coming closer than I imagined, Boys!"
He got the men to arm themselves with some of the Arms, and
Dice Profession (Merchant) Check:
2d20+12kh1 (5, 17 (keeping 17) )+12 Total = 29
directed them to cherry pick the best (most expensive) items they could carry.
"It's smash and grab, here guys!" He called to them. "We don't know what security measures are in place. There could be a detail on their way right now, so we gotta be quick!"

Bart the Street Mechanic"Hmmm. You start grilling those steaks get the coldest beers in the cooler. We'll be back."
The Chief grabs Roddenberry by his jacket, leading him off as those silver ocular implants would whir. Mayfield sweeps the surrounding noise, examining the make and model of the street vehicles, sizing up their drivers and the insignias they flaunted. The pair of engineers approach the first street racer who seemed to be without an engineer, the chief shaking off his usual sullen demeanor and forcing on a broad grin.
"Need some help with that beaut? We're off from work and are looking to get our hands dirty. You need a tune up? Check the numbers before you start spinning tires?"
The engineer stands there, patting Roddenberry's shoulders, relaxed while his gleaming silver eyes would flit over the signage around them, his boots grinding over the asphalt and estimating the street conditions. He made sure his voice was good and loud, likely unable to cut through the noise of the working mechanics and revving engines, at least turning a few heads to make it known there were some freelance mechanics present to offer their services.
"Why don't you just let me have a look at that there, hm!"

Yasir - The archmagos?As Yasir's new boys start looking through the warehouse Yasir feels a tap on the shoulder spinning round he finds Vania with both of her arms replaced by cybernetics one elegant and the other screaming pain and suffering to all who oppose it "well i see you can sniff out a good deal and still get me what i want "she gestures to the box of materials he collected for her however it seems she didn't actually need the contents she reaches into the void of her chest withdrawing out a refrigerated biohazard case "as agreed here is your gene seed i would recommend speaking with that god you serve about having it applied as i don't have the blueprints for the tech required to start the process only a list of augments also feel free to help yourselves to the whole place i came here to retrieve a few artifacts and burn the rest" she moves away retrieving several items and the like her new arm storing them but with each addition yasir can sense the same malicious energy that the artifacts given to him present but psionic energy masks the other energy so he cant get a full read on the power that the items hold after she leaves a rift opens behind him and khorne and Tzeentch walk through the old man strokes his white beard while khorne carries a box " well done your proving a better and better investment young man you have a gifted silver tongue and a bloodlust similar to you patrons" khorne sets down the box "khorne wishes to give you a gift he's not one for explanations of tech things so i will help while he reads the surgery for gene seed augmentation you will be the first primarch and archmagos ever in this universe and we have here some salvaged equipment used by an archmagos of the adeptus mechanicus " khorne returns through the rift and Tzeentch explains
 
Yasir's boys will turn up a quarter million credits worth of high value stuff



Chief - a roaring race the driver he originally thought was a man in his thirties turns round revealing they are a rather kind woman in her twenties turns out that leather jackets and short hair on toned muscles does not project a feminine identity at night "that be great i've no clue what i'm doing as my last mechanic buggered off wasted " she steps away letting him look at the engine and it's not what he expected the normal vespene burning engine is gone replaced with a old earth v8 6.5 engine with supercharger and nitrous oxide injectors the engine also burns basic petrol rather than more efficient vespene the best part to him is that all he needs to do is change the oil and tighten some things ( i need a dc 18 mechanics check )

ChiefBart claps his hands together, slipping on his gloves and nodding to his associate, "Oh, this shouldn't be long! Just leave it to us." The chief ducks down, sweeping a hand over the engine, his eyes flitting over the combined parts of the engine, reaching out for a tool he expected Roddenberry was at the ready to hand him. The pair work on the vehicle, finding time during the oil change to go see about a steak and beer.

I cant' find anything on Mechanic checks, but my Engineering is +12

CheifThe chief gets his food and beer about half way through his work the steak is a perfect medium rare and the beer is cold. however when he gets back to work her realizes he lost a piece of the supercharger (result of failing the check by 3 also mechanics was a different rule set i had been reading sorry wrote the post immediately after) Roddenberry looks through the driver's stock and says she does not have a spare but they can look for it as they probably dropped it (dc 18 perception check)


OOCdunno why but the checks dc was in a say box fixed it i probably just miss clicked or something

Yasir bin Abadard XXIV - Back to the Profit Margin
right-aligned image

"It's good to have options!" Yasir mused, to nobody in particular.

He gathered up his Gods-given gifts, so he could take stock of them later.

Decisions, decisions! He mused, before turning to his people.

"Allright! We pack this all up, and get it to the Ice Phoenix, then the first round's on me!"

They are a VERY worthwhile investment. I must make sure that I have all they need. "A Happy Workforce, is an efficient Workforce!" He thought, remembering his Scripture.

As his workforce packed up all they could, and prepared to move out, Yasir

thought about how he could lay in some Good supplies of food, drink, and luxuries for them, using his growing list of suppliers.

Yasir - The void poolAs Yasir collectes his things he remembers seeing a luxury goods store on the way here, leaving the warehouse he see's Vania enter a door he had not seen previously approaching the door beyond the threshold is dark faintly lit by several aged light bulbs the only way is down clearly to a basement level but when he arrives at the bottom he finds a large space with a pool of black viscous liquid decorated with stars as he reaches out to touch it he hears Vania's voice "I would not touch that " looking up and stepping away from the pool Vania is different in appearance she is covered with a towel as if about to take a bath but she looks older her body has developed more and she gained about a foot of height the fifteen year old girl who entered the building is now eighteen "the pool is what was used to give me my power pure nothing in liquid form" she gets in the pool submerging herself neck deep clearly erasing the towel from existence "I'm here to claim the rest of my quote on quote birthright or as humans would put it for a zerg creature, evolve im very much human but a tainted form it's why I can exist in nothing we are one in the same so in a way you could say I will absorb it, but really it's no more than a binding process that will drain this pool and prevent what happened to me" she thinks for a moment before continuing "also in a bit Cross will go after his target and my sister will launch an attack to start a rebellion on this world and I have a fun story to share with you i will keep it brief" she waves her hand and the room fills with dazzling dancing lights "we once tried to kill each other before but in a seprate reality now you are very different from th last version of yourself you for instance calculate the monetary value of a move or choice before had he was more aggressive and bloodthirsty caring for a more hands on approach now we met in a bar i was in between clients and looking for some fun so he suggested we steal from the chaos gods and they are the same in each reality no parrales so i still have my take from it but i would like you to return some of it to the gods as most of the artefacts were consumed by the void just now me ensuring they are weak as while I bind with the rest of the pool im exposed so here's your choice repeat what your parallel self did and kill me here or give back all the stolen items i have left and choose a new path of which nothing is known i will forget this conversation and your parallel self and move on with life with more control over reality than imaginable but this is one instance where Cross found and woke me I have my humanity meaning the galaxy is fine i have no wish for it's destruction each event in this timeline is perfectly placed for me to be right here with you now and to help keep the galactic powers from ripping each other apart" a box appears in front of Yasir opening it up twelves separate items are enclosed but they are indescribable and useless to him though they are what his gods seek "The choice is yours oh and before i forget here i have no use for it do as you wish with it" she dismissively waves her hand and a biohazard crate appears inside is 100 frozen progenoid glands each containing the gene seed he was destined to master but something told him to leave Vania be for that to be fruitful. the void in the pool shifts and mixes encasing Vania in a sphere of deep black nothing with stars the pool emptied into one space containing a girl with powers capable to topple the universe but he yet again had a hard gut feeling that leaving her was a better option than killing her

Chief MechanicingBart lets out an irritated groan, looking the engine over. He gives Roddenberry a shake of his head, the gearhead looking around the vehicle. dropping to the ground and scanning over the dark, oil streaked street. "How'd that even come loose?" He tries not to look too conspicuous floundering around the rig, at times glancing up to see how Rod's search was going.
