  • Episode 2 - We gain a ship

    So it turns out that the remaining Kaa pilot bluffed the pirates into running away just before he expired. Very convenient for us. It appears that as the last people standing, we now "own" the ship -- at least 9/10 of the way, with the remaining 1/10th …

  • Episode 3 - We explore the ship and test our abilities

    We still await the engine repairs. Progress is being made, but it looks like we may be sitting here a couple of days. In the meantime, we have started to explore the ship. The ship previously was used by smugglers, and, if we're lucky, there will be …

  • Episode 4 - We're looking, we're looking

    So we're still dead in the water, with not much happening. Lazarus found some gold and smuggler stuff, and Lucky found a lot of good spare parts. Benolaa did a little research, then decided to go back to being useless. Otherwise, we're just kinda …

  • Episode 5 - Quesix Reports

    _The following report was embedded and highly encrypted in a long, rambling, fairly pointless and primadonna-ish video that Quesix sent to his agent complaining about being stuck out in the middle of nowhere with no place to have any gigs. Oddly, it was …

  • Episode 6 - We explore Cyradon

    Finally, we began to explore Cyradon. Anik and then Robert went out to scout and look for clothes. Along the way, Anik made an exciting discovery, confirmed by Robert: magic can be used as an offensive weapon! In this case, we learned it can be used …

  • Episode 7 - Preparing for an expedition

    So we need to prepare for exploring Cyradon tomorrow. It certainly was serendipitous that Treefolk have visited the planet before so Alder can float around without hiding or using some disguise. With Happy able to create an illusion that shouldn't be …

  • Episode 8 - At last we go to town!

    After a nice nap, I was able to make at least some of the devices I had wanted. I handed out the spy transmitters to everyone, with the bonus of them being able to receive from and transmit to those of us that have brain implants. Plus, the ship is now …

  • The ABC's of Magic

    Robert and I took our first day of magic class, and we found it fascinating. The uses for magic and spells that have been created go far beyond what we've attempted. It's great to now have access to the work of a whole society of mages figuring out new …

  • Applied Magic Studies 201

    The magic class is continuing to be a revelation about how powerful magic can be. I'm starting to realize that magic and science can both become geometrically more powerful when combined. After class, I suddenly figured out exactly how to use magic to …

  • Tips for New Mages

    [Out of character details are in square brackets and red instead of white] First, I'd highly recommend you read the Markann's [[Magic | notes on magic]] [also look at [[Spell Casting | spell-casting]] ]

  • A Coven of Mages

    It was great to see the new mages start to show their stuff as we began to hunt the vampires in earnest. Lazarus impressed me most of all when he was able to combine magic and his teleport skill to locate and directly go to where the vampires were hiding …

  • Vampire-Hunter Hunters R Us

    After another round of shopping, dropping off the sleeping party members, and getting our gear, we all met up to go attack the vampire "hunters" and their vampires. It was really a shame that Robert and Anik were asleep, since those are really the only …

  • Vampire Rescuers R Us

    We managed to have a nice chat with the sole survivor of our encounter, a lovely vampire who was very helpful in explaining all about being a vampire. He seemed like a very nice guy, but kind of a downer. While his assistant was unable to successfully …

  • Dinosaurs are Awesome

    We got to see a real dinosaur! This adventure just keeps getting cooler and cooler. If it wasn't for the coming war, I could really enjoy this sector of space. Parallel evolution often results in dinosaur-like beings, but you rarely see anything more …

  • Benolaa Returns

    Benolaa returned finally, and it looks like being away from VR units did her a lot of good. Once I learned thaumaturgy, it became very apparent that she was somehow intuitively focused on learning how to enchant, and it looks like she has made astonishing …

  • We Explore Aries 3

    We have now spent some time exploring parts of the Aries 3 space station, and I remain as confused by this station as the rest of the sector. As in other places that we've visited, this station doesn't make sense. First, it's way beyond Known Space. …

  • Figuring Out Our Ship Upgrade

    We spent a long time discussing what to do for refitting the ship. I'm used to having discussions in The Agency where cost was at least a consideration, so it's odd to be in a situation where we can pretty much create whatever wealth we want. In the end, …

  • A Studying I Will Go

    Well our ship upgrade is now going on for the next few months. It's been a long time since I've had a period of enforced inactivity, waiting. The last time, when I was in the hospital recovering, I was constantly in an out of consciousness, and thus …

  • Exploring Alder's Winnings

    Before settling down for the 3-month wait for the ship, we took a look at some of the stuff Alder won. The shuttles are quite impressive, but so massive we can't even fit them in the freighter until the refit is finished. We went down to look at the new …

  • We say goodbye to Aries 3

    We at long last are really leaving Aries 3. Everyone made final purchases at the shops, we picked up any remaining items, and freed the slaves. I somehow forgot to pick up clothes for Mickey, so I made sure to do that before we went. Unfortunately, the …

  • A "Conversation" with the Markann

    We had a good "talk" with the dead Markann to find out more about him. First, I continue to love magic! How cool is it to now be able to ask questions of the someone who is dead! It's going to be so great when I eventually go home and dig up the bodies …

  • Maybe Caution is Warranted

    We've now discovered that we may have been manipulated -- just as the Markann scientist was manipulated. We've been led to a solar system that is an exact replica of The Human's original solar system. It seems likely this is more of the mysterious work of …

  • So Where Are The Good Guys?

    Evidence continues to mount that Lazarus' race is the Puppeteers. Thanks to a handy vision by Alder, we rescued one of the his race from a stasis chamber on Earth 2, and let's just say I am not impressed. This person, "Ganta", appears to be part of the …

  • A Real Gem of a Project

    Exciting discoveries about the anti-magic gems: I accidentally discovered they're even more powerful and dangerous than I thought! Careful-ish experimenting has shown that they seem to make it more draining to do both magic and psionics(!) within 100 feet …

  • It Came From Outer Space

    Benolaa made an amazing discovery that the gems are actually alive! What a fantastic purchase they were; they get more and more interesting! I'm tempted to drop my other research on mithril & DNA, and immediately start my investigation of them, but I …

  • Mithril: A Double Pleasure Waitin' for Me!

    Mickey and I had time to complete our study of mithril, and the results are great. It turns out that mithril has similar properties to iron, but is a heavy element in the periodic table's island of stability! We've long since predicted such elements, but …

  • What the--?

    When we arrived at the edge of the Gemini Cluster, we had a nasty surprise: a no-mana zone. Talking with Lazarus' "friend", we found out that the zone extends around the entire Gemini Cluster. Again, I am amazed by the capabilities of The Puppeteers. …

  • Experiments with No-mana Zones

    While we had some time before getting to our next destination, I decided to investigate no-mana zones. I wanted to understand how they worked, and if there were any ways to create a mana-filled area within a no-mana zone. It seems to me that there are …

  • With Great Power...

    Lazarus' "friend" Ganta continues to make me very concerned about the goals of The Puppeteers. He continues to treat everyone except Lazarus as sub-human, and appears to believe that we are Lazarus' servants. While not outright hostile, he seems to very …

  • Experimenting with Puppeteers

    We inadvertently made some very interesting observations about Puppeteers. We had previously thought nothing could survive rapid expulsion from a cryo chamber, nor could any creature survive in space. However, experimentation with a member of this race …
