Date & Time wrote: Day 2.
Time: 2 pm
Temperature: 85 degrees with 90% Humidity.
Weather: A steady drizzle has settled in on the town.
Seamus finds his way to the front door and radios the team, ”I am just outside your door. Ill keep this side secure unless You need assistance.”
Seamus leans against the wall, turning to take in his surroundings. Inside he can see Lux but does not see Jack. From his vantage point he can see at least two table, one with two men and the other with what looks like a family. Seamus nods at Lux and keeps his eyes on the tables looking for hostilities when the ATRV Sensor alarms warns him the door is open.
Seamus will open his radio to the team: "The ATRV has opened. Someone might have gotten in. Be mindful of a little girl, Lux and I promised to help find her brother."
Inside he does not see any of the patrons moving but he can clearly hear Jack address the group.
Jack responds, "Yep, you got the right Idea, if you see anything, I'll light them up, I'm sure nobody here wants to see a burning man run around."
Jack hears the commotion outside. Jack looks at the people in the bar and keeps them occupied verbally, “Nothing to worry about strangers. Sounds like someone trying to stop me friends.”
Jack speaks to those in the Bar, after he picks up the Net gun under the Bar, "Now we don't need to hurt anyone out here. I want to see everyone's hands on top of the tables and heads down. So no one gets any stupid ideas. Yes you guys know who I'm talkin about. Those Idiots think that you might have us out number, but I'll open up a Wall of fire right across everyone, which will burn you to hell and half the bar along with it. So move slowly, one hand at a time or things in here will get hot very, very quickly."
To Lux "Any idiots get an Idea they want to die here, give it to them."
Lux Replies quickly, "You got it."
Lux and Jack have a clear take on the entire tavern. Currently inside there are 5 tables occupied. All the people at the table seem more scared than angry or intent.
The man sitting at the table in Seamus view stands up slowly and says shakily, ”All I got is 500 credits. There yours sir, please, just don’t hurt my family.”
As he finishes, almost like on cue a woman from another table starts to sob loudly. Another man from a different table speaks out, ”We mostly poor farmers sir, please, please don’t hurt us.”
A woman at a table near where wak severed the heads of the two men falls to here knees, eyes focused on the blood still pouring from the open necks. She stairs and begins to scream with both hands on her own face, ”Oh my god! Oh my god! Oh my god! They are gonna kill us all! Oh my god!”
The crown around John and Will had long gone silent as the on lookers watched the engagement.
With one man’s arm still in his hand he taunts the dead men shaking and pointing the arm at them. "I told you not to do that."
Blood sparay from the arm splashing some on Will. A Woman in the crown screams and some of the people begin to scatter. Some are left standing, watching, trapped in the shock of what they just saw.
Will nods to John. "Thanks for the backup. Until we get some more facts straight, less dismembering please."
He takes a look around the plaza at the people who are at this point, definitely watching the two. "We're probably made at this point. If Wak has the bar covered, let's go secure our vehicle. I don't want anyone mucking around in there."
He frowns when Will 'chastises' him. "Yeah, I didn't want to. But who knows what would happen if they'd gotten a gun out. Could vaporize anyone here."
John turns to the crowd, and uses the arm of the guard he's still holding by the hand as a pointer, he gestures out over the town square. "Civilians, please remove yourselves from this area in an orderly fashion. We have evidence these men are slavers and the reason people have been disappearing."
As he swings the arm to and fro the last remnants of blood spray out onto the closer onlookers. More panicked screams are heard, and the rest of the people scatter in terror.
It is at this point Seamus comes over the team radio, "The ATRV has opened. Someone might have gotten in. Be mindful of a little girl, Lux and I promised to help find her brother."
John and Will head to the ATRV John still carrying the arm in his right hand as it bumps and hits brush along the way as they hurry.
When they get to the ATRV they see the door is indeed open. There is no one outside or around it that they can see immediately. They can see what looks like some corn spread out the door and around it like someone has been in and out of the ATRV hurriedly.
Wolf stand stoicly watching the beast beet on the forcefield and ask one simple question of Wak, "Did you get what you needed?"
Wak focuses on who they thought was Jameson and immediately decides his method is too slow. He radios the team, "The bartender is the leader, detain him. These men are slavers, so don't hold back if they come at you with violence."
Then turn to Wolf directly and says, "Blast him when the field drops."
Wak turns back to the Grackletooth and focuses his mental onslaught to blind and stun the grackletooth. The man falls to his knees, Wak drops the forcefield and reaches out creating a bond between their two minds. Memories pour into Wak’s mind catching him off guard at first, then he calms as his instantaneous sifts through looking for answers. He steps back, opens his eyes and answers Wolf’s ismpe question, ”I do now!”
The grackletooth begins to work his way to his feet right as Wak and Wolf unload on the creature. Still overcome by blindness and the mental pain of the stun it takes round after round with no attempt to defend itself. Riddled with holes the body eventually slumps to the ground lifeless.
[ooc=Mind bond]Initial images of interest
-The grackletooth shaking the bartenders hand agreeing to pretend to be Jameson.
-The over whelming understanding, the bartender is Jameson.
-The grackletooth’s belief the people are being used as mining slaves out west and into Mexico to mine for silver
-The complete understanding that the people are shipped to and through merctown via simple unassuming rafts. Once in Merctown they are shipped out in various ways. The grackletooth does not deal directly with the Merctown division. He does know the shippers are meeting with a man named Johnny.
-You can probe the memories for more questions at will for the next GM post[/ooc]
[ooc=Note to Wak]I used your JIC for the %roll with mind block for reaching out to a disturbed mind. Please roll save vs insanity for me in your next post.[/ooc]
I need you to review your character sheets and review what was
on the ATRV. Some of you already have notes as such. At least one of you has multiple large guns hanging from you harness which is supposed to hold smallish items (magazines and such). Please have this done by/before the next GM post. The AGM will be looking at character sheets for feasibility of what you are actually carrying on your person. If we find it doesn’t makes sense and you haven’t already made notes we will correct.
