"Any of you who can fly out in space without a ship might want to get you tails into the airlock and head out, cause we're going to need support if we are doing this." Rocket Storm's hands ran over the controls. "I can't believe we're doing this. And I was gonna eat that squid thing after the Doctor finished examining it," she muttered under her breath.
Kaul nods, relieved, as he takes his station once more, starting to sing.

Spoiler: Show


If you are a river, I am a sinking stone
We lost sight of our youth with room left for us to grow
When we left the city, green lights had turned to gold
I feel light as a feather and you feel your blood run cold

I know you got a one track mind
I ain't here to waste your time
Cause we're coming up
And I don't wanna come back down
We're coming up
And nothing's gonna stop us now

You count the headlights, I'll count the shooting stars
We've got all that we need to find our way out of the dark
When we were both younger soldiers, when we laughed at everything
When we hit the pillow faster than kids on the ecstasy
We told them our story in an accent but they knew where we were from

I know you got a one track mind
I ain't gonna waste your time
Cause we're coming up
And I don't wanna come back down
We're coming up
And nothing's gonna stop us now

I don't want to, I don't wanna let go
In the end, the whole world is quiet
Let's pretend where we're going we don't have to stop
I don't want to, I don't wanna let go

And I don't wanna come back down
No I don't wanna come back down
Cause we're coming up
And nothing's gonna stop us now

I don't want to, I don't wanna let go
No I don't wanna come back down
I don't want to, I don't wanna let go
I don't want to, I don't wanna let go
I don't want to, I don't wanna let go

"I'm nor sure if it's safe for eating..." Liv begun, but then she took a look at who was speaking, and changed her tune: "...Would you like fries with that?"

Aster joins the others in watching the viewscreen as their ship approaches the battle. Eclipse pokes a tendril out and extrudes a photo-sensitive "eye" to watch as well. It uses Aster's vocal cords to speak, the voice harsher and more dangerous than the young woman's. "Who are they? Have any of them identified themselves?"

"Don't worry, now," said SylaIcestar. "The powers of ultimate cold and ice that my Jotun heritage provides me will keep me safe from the rigors of space, and I'll deal with one of the fighters. As I swore to my sisters on the Stone Table, Justice Will Prevail!"

She'd heard about Jotun form some research on the Earth-hero Thor; it seemed like a good match for the powers that she thought Icestar ought to have. It was the little details like that that made one of her characters feel real, and she couldn't resist adding more. And she went out the airlock; Skrull physiology could easily cope with space and while the wings that that Earth-mutant used couldn't really flap there, between telekinesis, power blasts, and third-law propulsion by creating ice, she'd navigate well enough to get to the fighter...

OOC: ...Created a new hero, 3 XP. Added details, 1 XP.

Kaul throws Syla an amused glance, pausing in his song to say, “I’ll deal with the other fighter use my plasma to get there.”

OOC:

Okay, using Plot Point to buy a stunt, so I can use my Plasma generation power to propel Kaul there. Let me know if I need to roll anything.

As the Star Witch approaches visual scan range, some additional detail that wasn't conveyed by sensors becomes clearer. The fighters are hard to make out at this range, but the bulk of the ProwlShark is clear, and in the glow of the protostar, everyone can make out the black-and-orange slashed pattern covering its hull. Rocket's particular spheres of knowledge again give her the edge in recognizing the markings: they're the colors of Llares the Crafty, one of any number of freebooters in the neighborhood of the Tangle that drift between the categories of "successful pirate" and "aspiring warlord" as their fortunes wax and wane.

Putting eyes on the situation also clarifies that the ProwlShark's opponent is more properly its victim, because it's evident that the ship -- a personal transport or light freighter -- has another small craft docked with it. Given that the energy readings show its drive powered down or disabled, this additional vessel may be a boarding craft or assault shuttle.

OOC: You've yet to entirely commit yourselves, so we have not yet properly entered an action scene. However, we can do so as soon as any PC declares accordingly, and at that time I'll lay out what the opposition looks like. Each PC starts with their regular beginning 1 Plot Point, and you have the opportunity to spend for a resource, or to take an action to try to generate an asset.

The Doom Pool is at 2D6.

Once out in space, Icestar dove at her top speed towards the nearest ship she could find, with the intention of boarding it, even if only by forcing an airlock.

OOC: How's that?

You mentioned getting hold of a fighter. They're built with cockpits, not airlocks, but I will say that if you can remove a mob die, you can take control of the fighter away from its pilot and, just like the Star Witch, use its traits and SFX as a temporary Power Set.

You (or anyone else moving between vessels) can board one of the other ships by successfully creating an asset or leveraging an appropriate asset created by another character. To board the pirates' victim, you just need to succeed against the Doom Pool, but the ProwlShark will be able to use its own traits to oppose any attenpts to board it.

Liv exited the airlock following Syla Icestar and gracefully swam through the emptiness of space on her tentacles. "Well, this is interesting." the doc said idly, but a glint of curiosity - some might say insanity - was already present in her eyes.

"Let's see what's inside, shall we?" Liv said as her tentacles stretched out to strike the escorts with amazing strength and speed, but the souped-up defenses kinda got in the way...which didn't seem to affect her mood: "MWAHAHAHAHA!"

OOC: Solo D6, Souped-Up D4+1PP, Superhuman Strength D10, Enhanced Reflexes D8, Multiple Arms 2D6, Combat Expert D8: [1d6=5] [1d4=1] [1d10=4] [1d8=6] [1d6=6] [1d6=1] [1d8=6]. Total: 12, and I'll spend 1PP to add another 6 to make it 18; Effect: D10, D6; 1 Opportunity.

"...Would you like fries with that?"
"Potatoes are gross," Rocket Storm said. As the sensors pulled up more information she identified Llares colours. "Who knows, maybe he's got holds full of loot, or guns, or looted guns."
