EXCLUSIVE! A lot of rumors have been circulating about what Hector Hottie has been up to ever since his live stream went dark. Well, Hector Hottie sat down and wrote to us HIMSELF, folks. Are you excited? Because WE surely are! *squee!* (-GM)
12th Day of Rova, 317 AG
While everyone with a working brain started thinking of ways to find and use this “weapon,” Nikolai put on one of the dead guys’ uniforms. Why? I have no idea. He said something to us about talking to the worm, but i was focused on a more realistic endeavor. About a minute later he came back, in pain. What other outcome did he expect? I mean it’s a giant worm with crazy mind powers. With Nikolai’s idea out of a way, we proceeded on.
We felt like it was a good time to rest, so we started by making makeshift beds blah blah blah. We were then confronted by four people. They seemed to be quadruplets or something. One took out a laser pistol and did some kind of sneak sneaky stealthy thing and shot at us. We fired back quickly and hit one of them. It dissolved Into thin air. It seemed that it was an operative we were up against, who had some kind of replicating ability, making herself multiple images so we didn’t know which one was the original.
We chased after her. We got to a cavern where the artificial gravity stopped, and she tried to escape. Drifting out, she got stuck against the wall and three of us managed to get guns to her head. She dropped her weapon which started floating away and said, “Alright I give up I can’t win.”
We brought her back tied her up and started to interrogate her, why she was here and what she was doing. She was an android named Clara-247. She answered most of them pretty poorly, I would say.
Instead of interrogating her, I thought it was a good idea to make a deal. She would help us fight the Giant winged mindworm. She agreed to that if we a let her live, gave her back her stuff and also paid her 500 credits. We agreed to the deal — the worm seemed too strong for us to defeat. So we tied her up and we started to rest again.
All I remember about that night was falling asleep in the corner and having a strange dream. I was a child again, and my little sister held out her hand. I took it, and then we started walking toward a forest. Then i woke up floating out to open space and a bright light while a small grey creature with big buggy eyes went limp while holding my hand.
According to my crewmates, it went into my mind and did some Pennywise s*** to make me follow it. It was probably trying to bring me to the light, probably a spaceship, and study me. But luckily we — oh, and by we I mean my crewmates — killed it before it could do anything.
We went back to sleep again, and in the morning found the operative we had passed out on the floor somehow getting a hold of some kind of alcohol. We decided to brave the Mindworm anyways. We opened the door and it immediately attacked us, and by us I mean Nikolai. We shot it a bunch of times, somehow wounding it. The barrage of spells from Chappie as well as our relentless fire forced it to try to escape, but we done it down.
With the space worm dead, we looked for a way onto the Sunrise Maiden. Once on, we proceeded to check every inch for hostile life, but found no life at all.
We went back to the original ship and got the package for the Eoxian diplomat. Once aboard the Sunrise Maiden, we set off, hoping to get back to Absalom Station. While flying through empty space, our scanners picked up something moving out at us at high speed. It was another Eoxian ship. We didn’t ask questions — we fired first. We were unstoppable in our new ship. With me at the helm giving directions, XI and Chappie patching the shields up, Chee Kee flying the ship and making crazy maneuvers, and the insane accuracy of Nikolai and Tequila, we blew a hole straight through them, suffering one small shot to our hull. Then we sped off towards Absalom Station, ready for whatever the future had in store for us.
