Franklin uses the confusion and chaos to scoot over an borrow the the dead policeman's computer, slipping it into his parts bag and exiting quickly.

Once Julianne finishes handing the officer's handcomp, she nods agreement and makes her way outside.

Panthera has sold her shoe collection, so she's left with her snow boots and a pair of flip flops.

"I'm a classy girl, me. Look at the glamourous parts of town I get to visit!"

Panthera semi-unconsciously pulls her tunic's hem a little lower and zips up her jerkin. She pulls up the ponchos head to hide her hair.

She attempts to find the first 6 items on her list.

ooc: 13, 4, 9, 13, 10, 8 (+1 for Liaison)

She has a stoke of luck sourcing rations and snowshoes/skiis, but no joy as for vaporators and googles. She gets a lead in tracking down another rad-tent (hers can sleep 4), but no actuall tent. As for her own stores, she has some trekking trunks she can share, and a small supply of drugs.

She manages to get a 65% discount on one week's rations (dehydrated) for 6 people for cr473. The food is (ooc:2) good quality so thats a win!

She then finds a lecherous pawnbroker with several sets of skis and snowshoes in his shop. Using all her charm (and unzipping her jerkin) she manages to haggle him down 68%, so it cost cr352 to get 4 sets of TL8 snowshoes (she has her own pro-skis, and can rig up the trunks as a sled with the otherset of skis), though of varying quality (ooc: 4, 5, 3, 4): 1 fair, 2 poor, and 1 exceptionally poor.
Swatting the pawnbroker's advances aside with her newly purchased footgear, Panthera holes up in the GCarrier, to make some calls.

She calls Julianne, and then Frank, but gets no network coverage. Feeling uneasy, the guns the engine.

Getting Owen's answer service, Panthera says:
"Hi Owen, done some shopping and I've got food and some survival gear. We still need ponchos and HES's for anyone who needs it, but I'm afraid I'm run out of cash, only cr269 left. I've got a lead on another tent, but maybe we don't need it if we have the Gcarrier. Can you send me more funds to get the rest. Oh, by the way, I can't get any connection to the others on my aide... I got a bad feeling about this. The news channels are very quiet, unusually so, and all this conspiracy theory is making me jumpy. Call me as soon as you get this message. See ya soon."

Panthera lifts off, glancing uneasily in the rear view mirror, and makes another attempt to source cheap ponchos, (ooc: 5), but without joy. There's definitely something up with the Com-Web...

Owen has a few more drinks. He pauses briefly to be sick in a pot plant (must be a side-effect of the meds), and goes to his room for a bath, a rare luxury for a belter. With his head underwater, he misses his commo's beeps....

Ref says: "I bet it was the Sovs that planted that bomb."

"Naw, what interest do the Mind Rippers have in us? But, damn, where is the Imperium when you need them?"

"Got to be those lousy Greens they are trying to take over the entire Sector, and they got Imperial backing from what I heard."

"Didn't ye hear what happened to the Pride? She was sawed off by them pirates. Its the Imperium that keeps the whole thing from rupturing into chaos."

"The Imperium only interest here is to use us a staging point and service station for greenfield sites deeper in the sector."

"Look if we are supposed to protected by a Mason Gun in the sub fleet and the Navy and SPA guard against foreign attack. It got to be local."

"I don't know, there aren't anything noble about Imperialism."

(just some of the comments overheard outside by the players).

Later that night, as they settle in Stan's Place for another night of gambling and drinking. They catch the TAS news report on the bombing. It shows how the restaurant was a secondary target but the primary target was the police station next door. Then the reporter comments that several offworld terrorist groups with known links to the Ine Givar Central Committee. Law Enforcers are currently looking for two suspects at large. A composite computer rendition flashes up on the screen of the two suspects. One is a human female who looks awfully like Ditzie and the other is a Hiver that bears an uncanny appearance to Franklin.

Ditzie's roommate from the sorority appears on the screen, "Ya, like what I am saying she was never interested in her studies, she merely wanted to build bigger guns. She seemed to be obsessed with the whole violence thing. That and Pogo Sticks."

A stern looking Law Enforcer Chief appears on the screen, "Anyone with leads to the whereabouts of these two criminals kindly call 9-1-1 and we will send a detachment straight away. Do your duty citizens, our safety depends upon it."

There is a silence in the bar floor for a moment and then the usual drone of conversation resumes.

"Big fat hairy arse!"

Panthera lands the Grav Car at Stan's in a pensive mood. She's had no luck tracking down tents, and has heard nothing from the others regarding funds so that's that basically. Then she sees the newsfeeds on the ComWeb and her heart sinks when she sees Ditzie and Frank in those dodgy 'artist's impressions'.

Fatigue toxins, a very long day, and the remains of last night's hangover cause her to start hallucinating. She thinks of how she dragged Frank on the makeshift sled and wonders if we could disguise him as a ski-bot... She has an image of Ditzie riding a Frank-propelled ski-bot... That girl is so tomboy, always fatigues... I got some really girly clothes that might fit her... And I got some hair dye left

She enter's Stan's and finds the group. She blurts:
"We can turn Ditzie into a robot and I've got a really nice frock for Frank, and we can dye him pink."

Slumping into a chair next to Julianne she says: "Got rations for us all for one week, snowshoes to boot, ha ha, for 4. You need rad protection. I got no more money" she pulls out what cash remains and loose change spills all over the table onto the floor "Mines a double G & T", before her eyes close and her head slumps onto Julianne's left shoulder.
Zzzzzzzzzzzz....

At the close of the news report, Julianne (stating the obvious) says, "Looks like someone's interested in a setup. We outta put out a few false leads to mess with them."

Julianne gives Panthera a very surprised look when she sits down and puts her head on Julianne's shoulder. However, Panthera is already asleep and misses it.

"A robot, huh? Pink Hivers, too. *Sigh...* Let's ask when she wakes up. And someone get me a blanket, please."

"Oh, and if we want to get something with living space, I know how to drive wheeled ATVs.

When she has the blanket, she covers the both of them, and falls asleep planning to find rad protection in the morning.

Owen is up bright and early, helping Stan prepare eggs and fish. They have a brief argument about the meaning of tea. He goes for a walk and prints out the newsfaxes - he's a hardcopy kinda guy. He buys some short-range commos for the group and fiddles around with them to beef up the encryption, to limited effect. [OOC - rolled 8 in task. Electronics-2, Cryptography-1 skills]

When Pantera wakes he offers her coffee without so much sludge in it, and Cr300 contribution to operating expenses.

He takes out his usual array of pens and highlighters and assaults the newsfaxes.

On flash paper a note is left for Julianne, it reads: "I did not think that you would be so stupid as to compromise our position. West gate meeting moved up to noon." with that there is a momentary flash and the nothing is left but the atoms of carbon.

There is still quite a substantial amount of shopping left and no player has attempted to determine where they're are going. (OOC: Remember there was a challenge or task roll, I would prefer if you took up the challenge). Your grav car rental ends at noon, unless you want to pay an additional 200Cr. Panthera may be in need of help transporting the bulk of items.

Law Enforcers seem to be on edge, whenever they are coming into Stan's Place. The theft of their hand computer seems to have gone unnoticed by local officers in area around Stan's Place. Preliminary attempts at accessing the computer show many levels of encryption and that it possesses a wireless relay.

Even Stan seems more subdued. When asked about the reason is that it seems that everyone is afraid where the terrorists will strike next. There is a marked increase in body amour with the marines guarding Imperial installations. The local news is filled with the bodies of yesterday's explosions occasionally interspersed with the images of the young woman and the Hiver.

Owen's fiddlings with the communicators pays off. He is able to get a wide range of communication, unfortunately to break the code will take time. Most of the communication is taking place between the Count's Orbital Palace, the Diplomatic Centre and someplace deep in the Wilderness. Anytime, he tries to zoom on a location a tracker signal is launched to determine his location.
OOC: Guys, try to make your postings more lively! As we still could recruit more players before something results in a temporary closure of the adventure to newcomers. I know how Real Life(TM) can wear one down. But, we really need to get posts that you guys are feeding off each other's actions and I promise that I will be able to supply the adventure.

Owen takes the handcart and unloads the grav vehicle. He puts all the stuff in his room, if no-one else is up (he is an early riser). He leaves the cart, and returns the rental grav, after clearing it of all items.

Pulling up the collar of his chunky jacket, he hurries back to Stan's...

When the others wake up, they find Owen sitting at a table. Spread on it are maps, charts, and half a dozen compact communicators. He is methodically scanning the charts for the Erase Li Plains. He is also noting any plains that aren't named.
