Post Round 2. GO!

This the In-Character (IC) Play Thread. Out-Of-Character (OOC) and other matters go in the appropriate thread.

Bohen [FARS 1224], C 666 656-8.
Local Time: 1200 (360-0195 PI).

Bohen is an agricultural world with a small population and Banner with a long view. Located in the rimward end of Greater Empty, part of the Lonely Trio (Shesser [FARS 1223], Bohen [FARS 1224], and Camp Oftsy [FARS 1323]) it has the only local starport worth anything. While it is a only a Class C port it does boast a newly completed high port, Bohen Heights which orbits above Bohen Downs (or as it is already being referred to by the locals as "the Old Port"). The world does a brisk trade in agricultural goods and has a trade agreement with its neighbor Shesser. Shesser's extremely small community specializes in rare grains and other ag goods and have good relations with the Banner.

Said Banner, Lord von Ryer is the 10th of his linage to hold the title since the founding of the Permatic Imperium and has designs to bring his world into the larger arena of interstellar trade. He has invested and was mostly responsible for the building of the high port to allow unstreamllined bulk carriers to visit without having to bring their own smallcraft. He's got a contract with Camp Ofsty to supply them with foodstuffs, and he's invested as partner in Fliskin Transport. He is eager to bring trade and colonists to his world and he's put the word out in the Traveller circles and so it has come to you.

Thus it stands as you, freshly Mustered Out of your Imperial service, step off the highport courtesy shuttle on to the concrete of the port having arrived at Bohen Downs with an invitation to the see the Banner at his Manor a few days before Holiday, or New Year's Eve as the Terran traditionalist call it.

It is noon and Ryersville, the largest urban site on the world boasts more than the 50K population than is listed in the old guides and around the port it is bustling and the aromas of various food carts just outside the Line and the crowds around them show that noon here is still prime eating time.


Not to scale.

The day is new and the world is open.

Default Frank's arrival at Bohen Downs

Frank Masuda, recently mustered out of the Imperial eXogalactic Scout Service, Ranger Branch, stepped down off of the courtesy shuttle onto the concrete landing pad of Bohen Downs starport and took a look around. His invitation to come and discuss a business proposition with the local noble, Banner Lord von Ryer, had mentioned the possibility of a pickup by grav limo, but he didn't see one around. Maybe on the other side of the main terminal, outside the extrality line.

Frank wished he had been able to land his Scout ship here at Bohen Downs, where all of his gear would be more readily accessible, but the Banner's regulations and fee schedules were definitely slanted toward docking all starships at the Highport and going down to the planet surface by shuttle. The ship he had been assigned as a detached duty vessel had a strange name, "Whatever's Clever," which seemed to invite renaming. Fortunately, although it wasn't the ship he had used in The Service, it was at least a Ranger-equipped ship, with certain extras including a programmable transponder. As soon as he had a mission or had decided where to go from here, it would be easy to change.

Frank decided that he needed to head into the terminal to:
1) get into some shade;
2) find a secure locker for his Gauss pistol (banned by LL6);
3) call the local Chapter House of the Knights of the Empire to ask questions about Bohem, including whether he might carry his Gauss pistol with Tranq needles only (LL6 allows "stunners");
4) find someplace to buy a stunner if he can't carry his own pistol; and
5) recheck the invitation saved on his comm regarding instructions for getting out to the Banner's ranch (maybe he needs to call for limo pickup).

[Frank needs to know if he is accompanied by any other PCs before unilaterally declaring much further, I think...]

Arrow At Bohen Downs with...

Frank Masuda.

The Terminal is pretty basic, template concrete, cremanics, steel, amd glass. The day is a pleasant 27°C as the Port and Ryersville are just a smidge north of the equator, some clouds dust the sky but they're cirus and so probably no rain. There's quite a bit of green plant and various colored lichens within and without. Murals in a style those of pre-Jump Earth call New Socialist Reaism or in the Soviet style. Mostly agricultural and light industry. It gives the vibe of a world that knows it isn't yet a First World but sees itself clearly on the way.

Easily done there is a section of lockers for small packages both long and short term. A week's storage of amrs willl run about Cr 350. There is a bond posted so this isn't some sort of cheap, easily knocked off locker like say a Class D. Also, they boast alarm service and remote access security, rather high end for a crappy C class and off the beaten path at that.

Nope, the Banner and the Mayor are pretty in snyc with this one. They used to be looser but they started to have problems so now, it is stunners* only. Keeps the homicide rate low. The Page will direct you to a Hunter Joe's Arms Emporium which has a pretty good rep among Travellers. They have a selection of styles and models for both purchase and rent.

*Stunners being non-lethals such as sleepy gas or tasers or neural disruptors.

Default Julius arrives!

Julius Tanaka walked across the terminal at Bohen Downs, following the signs for the grav-taxi stand. He briefly paused to wipe the sweat off his forehead with a handkerchief before tucking it back into his toolbox. He had stocked it with a range of equipment like a sort of miniature Ship's Locker, but kept in mind the local Law Level. The handkerchief came to rest beside a collection of basic mechanic's tools, a compact computer and a taser, as well as various other small items such as a locator beacon. One of the tools had a handle painted in rainbow colours with a chain of beads attached to it. Julius supposed the chain of beads could be useful for hanging the tool on hooks, but mostly it just seemed a bit comedically ridiculous - a typical example of the sense of humour of Julius's former Captain Carick Shanley, who had given it to him as a present just before his Mustering Out. The colours and beads were actually a tradition from the world of Sekhmet [FARS 2025]; Sekhmet was one of Captain Shanley's favourite worlds in the Imperium, which was no surprise considering how its garish colourfulness and wild festivals aligned with his tastes. Julius liked Sekhmet as well, though more for the local cuisine and music. It was a shame the world's political situation was so unstable, with several rival governments constantly teetering on the brink of civil war.

The toolbox overall was about the size and shape of a suitcase, but filled with heavy equipment it would be rather a hassle to carry around, even for an Imperial Serviceperson. Instead, the suitcase was carried by a small, airborne robotic drone, which Julius had mostly built and programmed himself, though a few of his comrades and his father had helped him. He had already noticed some of the locals passing by eye it with expressions ranging from curiosity to suspicion, used to TL-8; however, Julius had already checked that Bohen didn't have any laws that would affect little Boxer.

As he resumed walking, Julius thought about his current situation in life. He had Mustered Out only a few weeks ago; one of his former instructors had already offered him a position at the Unbulne Naval Academy, and he hadn't declined the offer, but he'd wanted to get away from the enclosed Naval culture for at least a little while. His first plan had been to travel to his homeworld Olam [FARS 2022], but then he'd gotten an invitation from the Banner Bohen. Bohen was only two parsecs away from INB Unbulne [FARS 1425], so it wasn't an especially long journey, and, though he had never met the man personally, Julius had heard that the Banner Bohen was actually someone concerned with the productivity of his assigned world rather than just petty internal squabbles like most of the minor Nobles he was familiar with, so he'd decided to accept the invitation.

Besides, it would probably be better for him to wait a few months to visit Olam anyway, as then his cousin Isaac Varsis would be on shore leave and his brother Abraham would have returned from representing the Olam-based jump drive manufacturer Saniisha on several of the Imperium's major worlds. The only one of his close living family members who lived there continuously was his father Hallon, a Craftsman for Wiseman Yards (the handkerchief was a gift from them, bearing their logo, which Julius didn't really like but he'd wanted a handkerchief anyway and it worked as good as any other).

Julius emerged from his thoughts as he arrived at the grav-taxi terminal, with Boxer slowing to a halt beside him. There were no grav-taxis currently, but about half a dozen people milled about, most of them with Scout uniforms. One of them stood out to Julius. A man looking to be in his forties like himself, Julius thought he recognised his face from Service news. Hadn't he made several important Discoveries? Yes, that was it.

'Excuse me, you wouldn't happen to be Frank Masuda, would you?'

[OOC: there being several people with Scout uniforms is so that Dabi could also be there; Frank has Fame 19, so I thought Julius would probably recognise him]

Question Clarifications requested

As Frank's career in law-enforcement would include some education on available non-lethals at various TLs:

Sleepy Gas: Is sleepy gas (in form permissable as LL6 "stunner") available in any sort of gun such as The Green Hornet's gas gun (little pellets that popped gas, IIRC)? Do sleepy gas grenades count as LL6 stunners? YES. If neither of the foregoing, I'm at a loss - what form of sleepy gas delivery is available? Something like Walt Boyd's concealed-sleep-gas-projector-in-electric-lighter, in Four Day Planet?

Tasers: Are these only the TL7(?) variety firing darts connected to the gun by wire? YES. Or has TL15(?) advanced to the point of using a low-intensity, non-destructive, laser to ionize a path through the air and let the knockout zap follow that path? IMPORTED WITH PRICE HIKE. GURPS calls such a taser an electrolaser, and although I'm too lazy to go look it up (those books are upstairs, ouch!), I'd think that if such an idea would actually work, it ought to be at no more than TL9 or 10 by Traveller standards.

Neural disruptors: Stunner version is limited to non-lethal energy levels, I reckon? YES.

Oh, yeah, and what about all of the shock sticks, shock-knucks, etc available in SF literature (if not in RL; I really don't know) as equivalents to the current misnamed "stun-gun" that isn't a gun at all but looks a bit like an electric shaver that could give you a Big Surprise (ObRef Paul Reiser/Buchman FTW)? Surely those are all stunners, even if they are also handy in melee combat? WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE PROHIBITED. CONSIDERED PROVOKING.

Hmm. The bits on the Banner's limo are still there, but the New Info is all about taxi-equivalents, so even though you didn't answer my question about what the Invitation actually says about getting to the Banner's ranch, the New Info implies we're supposed to be going by grav-taxi.

So, there goes our opportunity for Julius and the two Scouts to meet when picked up by the limo. YEPPERS, THE INVITE WAS INFORMAL BY WAY OF RECOMMENDATION FROM A TRUSTED SOURCE.77topaz, I guess of the available options [see OOC; news had faces altered, and Frank ain't wearing that name tape on his shipsuit!] we are kinda down to "Julius and Frank were vaguely acquainted sometime in the past, and Julius has a good memory for faces."

So I'll grab that line you tossed and we'll get Frank and Julius face to face! (Now where in Gehenna is Dabi?)

Talking Frank Meets Julius!

[A Few OOC Notes:

Of the available options [see OOC thread: news reports had faces altered, and Frank ain't wearing that name tape on his shipsuit!] we are kinda down to "Julius and Frank were vaguely acquainted sometime in the past, and Julius has a good memory for faces." I'm willing to leave it as vague as that unless/until we work our more detail In Character; I dunno about Julius's Navy career, but the Permatic Imperium and its spheres of interest aren't really that large an area, and Frank has been all over it at one time or another in the past 28 years as a Field Scout and Ranger.

As for the location that Julius sees Frank, I dunno what you want to say about what you already wrote, but No, Frank is not out near any taxi-stand (surely not an entire terminal of taxis?) as I noted in my previous IC post that Frank has several items of business to conduct inside the Downport before he can cross the extrality line into local control and LL6 to look for a taxi.]

============================

Frank looked around the Downport terminal, wondering where that young Cub had taken himself off to. They needed to stash their offworld weapons (or at least, Frank did) and visit the Hunter Joe's shop to find some alternates that would pass the local weapon restrictions.

Those were words that Frank was never happy hearing unexpectedly, but when he turned to look (keeping his gunhand empty and near the butt of his pistol), he realized that Yes, the person hailing him did look vaguely familiar. Not another Scout like young Dabi; no, maybe an Imperial Navy officer?

"Uh, yeah, that's me. We've met, haven't we? Navy Base somewhere, or was it back on Permatic?" Frank extended his right hand to offer a gesture of friendship to the stranger, meanwhile letting go of his duffel handle with his left so that he can keep it free to go for one of his several knives if necessary.

Default The Goober's Intro...

Dabi steps off the shuttle ramp, carefully sniffing the unfamiliar air.

Sidestepping just a little so he won't be in the way of others' disembarking, he takes a deep breath of good standard air, noting the stronger scents of what passes for lunch on Bohen.

Ah, Bohen. Rumor has it the Lord Bohen wants to raise the world's profile, and Dabi figures it's better poking through new vistas instead of humaniti's same old problems. He didn't want to play a soldier beyond learning how to protect himself and Imperial interests as an explorer. He didn't ask to be shot at by disgruntled people. Dabi was just doing as posted during an occupation.


Looking down at himself, he wishes he used his pay for things like more presentable clothing. It didn't seem quite right to show up for a potential job in worn clothes. But, at least they were clean, and he wasn't naked.


"Great." Dabi mumbles. "What if the local culture does parade around nearly naked?" he asks himself a little too loudly.


He gets a few odd loos at that statement.


"First things first. I think I should try to check in to my potential employer."


"I need to call His Lordiness." as he looks around for a public comm booth.

Frank shook hands with the man who had seemed to recognize him in the crowd, trying his best to remember the man's name.

[Hmm, standard difficulty so unless GM says differently I want to roll 6+; DM +× for Frank's Int of A; plus I think DM +4 for Frank's 4 terms as a Ranger (in lieu of any directly applicable skill) since in that profession it could be very important to remember faces/names to recognize Bad Guys. Aww, frag. Forgot we're doing T5 here. So, umm, [search search, hope T5.2 is better organized, not exactly a high bar to clear, grumble grumble] looks like AVG task requires rolling 2d for =< Characteristic, which in this case would be Frank's Int of D, [wait, so now we want LOW rolls for success?!? ] with DMs, umm... no applicable Skill that I can think of, so how about a DM +4 for Frank's 4 terms as a Ranger (in lieu of any directly applicable skill) since in that profession it could be very important to remember faces/names to recognize Bad Guys - no, wait, we want LOW result so that should be DM -4. Then what the heck, make it Hasty so that raises difficulty by 1 and now I need to roll 3d6 for =< Int(13), with DM- 4. OK, roll 'em: (3d6)[9]. So 9-4=5 and Frank easily recalls the stranger's full name. Whew!]

"Oh, sure, Julius Tanaka, right? Are you still in the Navy?" Frank released Julius's hand and flicked his eyes around, still looking for Dabi. Where could that Cub be? They'd received the same invitation while up on the highport, to come dirtside and meet with the local noble at the upcoming Holiday celebration at his ranch, but had been unable to secure adjacent seats on the shuttle down. "Hey, excuse me just a moment, Julius, I need to try to locate someone."

Frank raised his left wrist to chin level to counteract the crowd noise, reflexively dropping his right hand to within a dm of his holster. "Comm. Call Dabi." He heard a few beeps, then the connection tone, and waited for Dabi to pick up.

'Yes, that's me, from INB Unbulne,' Julius replied after shaking Frank's hand. 'I just mustered out a few weeks ago, actually. I got offered a job at the Unbulne Naval Academy, but I haven't decided about that yet. An... acquaintance invited me to Holiday celebrations here.' He hadn't actually met the Banner Bohen before, so he couldn't really call him an acquaintance, but something about the invitation had given Julius the impression that he should be careful when talking about it. He suspected there was an ulterior motive to the invitation, since as far as he knew even Imperial Nobles didn't usually invite people they'd never met to Holiday celebrations.

While Frank was calling on his wrist comm, Julius waited patiently, checking Boxer had caught up to him and then casually looking around at the surroundings of the terminal and the various sophonts walking past (mostly Humans, though he saw an Edendextu family pass as well). The hall they were standing in had several generic Imperium-wide cafés and food joints on one side, and on the other side a large window looked out on a cargo storage area mostly filled with stacks of containers. The one nearest to the window bore the logo of jump drive and power plant manufacturers Shaasagra-Inkesi, another one of the manufacturing-related megacorps that had just moved their headquarters and plants to Olam; Julius wondered if these goods he was seeing were already manufactured there, or still on some other industrial world like Permatic.

Meanwhile, he decided to ask Frank if he'd like anything from the nearby cafés once the latter was done with his comm. It had been a few years since Julius had seen him, and he'd certainly be interested in talking some more with him, though he wasn't sure if he'd have the time to before he'd need to go to the grav taxi-stand to get to the Banner's Keep.

Lightbulb *beep-beep* goes the Comm...

As Dabi is looking around for a comm terminal that isn't being used, there only being a half dozen or so and they all seem to be occupied at the moment, his comm will beep for attention. Assuming young Dabi looks at his comm, Frank catches the movement and spots the missing Scout over by the crowd near the comm terminals which are near the front door of the port.

***

Your Referee is hoping this is acceptable to all parties to get you all together and if desired to explore Bohen Downs and maybe do some shopping. Oh and if Dabi is gonna put the call into VM, be aware this isn't a particularly large port so there are good sight lines around to scan crowds. Though it does seem a bit busy right now what with the shuttle having just unloaded.

Also, I'm going to assume since you all came in one major transports you have all gotten cleared through Customs...unless you want to deal with that. I promise no Exit Visa shenanigans.

As to the Clever, she's been off loaded from the transport and given a berth in the Heights where you can collect her when you're ready to leave. Hmmm. Still needs a name but apparently is a female styled LIP, so we go with my beloved Victoria for her name. Any complaints that I should address?
