(7:01:48 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hey hey
(7:10:50 PM) MisterBoxingBear entered the room.
(7:10:56 PM) MisterBoxingBear: Gah, sorry.
(7:12:19 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Hey
(7:12:22 PM) LCdr TKirr: No worries.
(7:14:38 PM) cmdr shelev entered the room.
(7:15:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, there we go. Kiley let me know she wouldn't be here tonight.
(7:15:44 PM) LCdr TKirr: *hangs up phone before it answers* whew.
(7:17:39 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay then, let's get started. T'Kirr and I were enjoying our "water" while Shelev and McKnight were on the way back with "food." Ready?

(7:20:25 PM) cmdr shelev: ::follows the big marine guy and watches for tails. Badly.::
(7:20:27 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::stands from his reclined against a wall position::
(7:21:09 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::busies herself with a pile of parts, not seeming to be making anything of it, an empty cup on the bed beside her::
(7:23:29 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::goes to the window overlooking the tunnel they came in::
(7:24:22 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::not seeming to come up with anything useful to make the parts into, drops the piece she was holding back into the pile and stands up, stretching and feeling useless::
(7:24:53 PM) LCdr TKirr: Do you think they've been caught?
(7:25:28 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: If they have, I feel sorry for their captors.
(7:25:39 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::stretches himself, it being contagious::
(7:26:20 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::And once they're underground, drawing more attention to themselves ceases to be a problem, so McKnight simply draws the pistol that Blackthorne gave him and makes his way back toward where they left the others, looking behind him
(7:26:24 PM) MisterBoxingBear: every now and then.::
(7:26:42 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::responds with a perked eyebrow and momentarily considers reseating herself, but moves to slowly pace the room instead::
(7:27:47 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Would you want to try to capture McKnight?
(7:27:53 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::smirks::
(7:28:14 PM) cmdr shelev: ((no but his idiot sidekick..)
(7:28:16 PM) MisterBoxingBear: (It's true, he's a wretched house guest. He never uses coasters or anything.)
(7:28:53 PM) LCdr TKirr: No, but orders aren't always optional. ::stills and studies the wall::
(7:29:06 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((afk))
(7:29:23 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((We're moving and someone's buying something heh))
(7:30:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::sees them from the window:: Ah, there they are.
(7:31:18 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Looks up with a grin:: Come get it while it's hot! It wasn't cheap!
(7:31:27 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Mutters:: And it may get more expensive yet.
(7:31:49 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Wait til you taste the water!
(7:32:08 PM) cmdr shelev: There's water down here? Thought it was just mud.
(7:33:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::moves away from the window, starts up the water filter machine, and goes to unlock the door::
(7:34:03 PM) MisterBoxingBear: (BRB)
(7:35:07 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((back))
(7:35:42 PM) cmdr shelev: ((good eat your salad))
(7:36:28 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::takes the offered salad and scrutinizes it::
(7:37:28 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Digs into the fried scraps he scrounged up since it wouldn't be proper to make anyone else eat them.::
(7:38:27 PM) MisterBoxingBear: Well, the good news is that we have a pretty good idea how their currency works now.
(7:38:44 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::locks the door behind them::
(7:38:52 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: So how much do we have?
(7:40:19 PM) cmdr shelev: Not enough to buy back what we bartered.
(7:40:46 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::begins to pick at her salad::
(7:40:51 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: As long as we have some food.
(7:41:09 PM) cmdr shelev: Yes. I recommend not savoring it.
(7:41:58 PM) cmdr shelev: I think this used to be seafood.
(7:42:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes some of whatever it is:: Same goes for our water.
(7:42:50 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: It is, at least,s afe.
(7:43:24 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Fills a cup and sips.:: Did you ferment this?
(7:43:46 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I wish.
(7:43:51 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::glares sidelong at Shelev while munching::
(7:43:57 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes a cup and fills it to wash the food down::
(7:44:05 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Eat up, we have to move out.
(7:45:21 PM) cmdr shelev: You hear something?
(7:45:34 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> Deep in the subway, a door opened.
(7:45:43 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::perks an ear::
(7:46:19 PM) LCdr TKirr: Something like metal on metal.
(7:46:46 PM) cmdr shelev: ::gets the nearest tricorder.::
(7:46:59 PM) cmdr shelev: ::pres butan::
(7:47:08 PM) cmdr shelev: I can't find anything with all this iron.
(7:47:17 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::grabs the rifle that McKnight left him in exchange for the pistol::
(7:48:04 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Swears under his breath, just before he shoves his burger down his gullet. Too late to ask for that rifle back. So instead, he just scurries over to the window. At least they have the high ground this time.::
(7:48:08 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> murming voices in the deep :ghost:
(7:48:35 PM) LCdr TKirr: Someone's coming. ::moves to the side of the door::
(7:49:36 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::tosses the rifle to McKnight::
(7:49:48 PM) cmdr shelev: ::stashes the food box back in the bag and hides said bag in an empty bucket, ready to grab and run.::
(7:49:52 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Sweet. In that case, Blackthorne can go back to playing Atton.::
(7:50:19 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::having finished her salad in short order, hunger winning out over taste, quickly discards the tin while listening through the wall::
(7:51:37 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > gimme the knife shorty, you're just going to get stabbed
(7:52:05 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > no, you're going to get stabbed; why we chasing these guys through this muck anyway?
(7:52:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::takes his pistols back and checks the charge::
(7:52:57 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Whispering.:: Yeah, um...we kind of had to haggle down the price of that food a little.
(7:53:00 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > no one robs a fast food joint because they live here. someone's got something valuable. Now shut up or they'll hear us.
(7:53:32 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::rolls his eyes and whispers:: Thugs. Stun em hard and move out.
(7:54:07 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION > the footsteps stop.
(7:54:09 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::phaser still at her hip, remains next to the door at the ready::
(7:54:27 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > That way! The brakeman's room!
(7:54:43 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > Cheesie gonna be pissed someone took his room.
(7:55:11 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> ::clop clop clop slash clop::
(7:55:24 PM) cmdr shelev: ::whisper:: Well at least we know where they're coming from.
(7:55:30 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::meets McKnight's eyes as they listen::
(7:55:35 PM) MisterBoxingBear: (Do these weapons they took even HAVE a stun setting?)
(7:55:47 PM) cmdr shelev: ((does it matter :v:))
(7:56:07 PM) MisterBoxingBear: (We'll assume stun was a euphemism.)
(7:56:52 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> ::click, tink, roll. Someone got a grenade for christmas!::
(7:56:52 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: (I forgot we didn't have our usual weapons. :( ))
(7:57:08 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: COVER!
(7:57:13 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::dives::
(7:57:19 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: :dives behind a bed::
(7:57:44 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> ::The pineapple rolls up to the door and explodes. It must have been past its expiration date, because no one is harmed. The door, however, is quite dead.::
(7:58:05 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Squeezes into a locker.:: (( yes those two were out of order ))
(7:59:09 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::gets to her feet, surprised at the impotent blast, and pulls herself up the wall again next to the door::
(7:59:29 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: That was rather sad. ::fires through the empty doorframe::
(7:59:55 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > ::some random utterance that is most likely translated as :( ::
(8:00:01 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Sticking just his rifle around the corner so that only his handa re exposed, starts firing off a blind barrage.::
(8:00:30 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((Oh thanks, I'm right next to the doorway o.O))
(8:00:39 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Uses the piffle holdout phaser to shoot across the doorframe in what might be considered covering fire, assuming the definition was broad.::
(8:01:37 PM) cmdr shelev: ((you're covered by the locker that the gamemaster put between you and the doorframe, plus you're with two good shots and one who isn't even aiming at the door.))
(8:03:02 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::fires a few more long bursts through the door::
(8:03:08 PM) cmdr shelev: ::pulls a random box of bolts out of the locker he's hiding in and throws them at the open door. They fall down the stairs, resulting in about a one second gap in firing while someone tries to figure out why it is raining bolts.::
(8:03:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::tries to assess the thugs' proximity, but can't hear a thing over all the fire::
(8:04:24 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Glances back at the window overlooking the tunnel, takes a moment to do a little calculation in his head, then steps away from the door:: Adm...uh, Ian, take my spot for a second, would you? Shelev, I need your help.
(8:04:44 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::reaches for the tricorder at her belt, but finding it not there, realizes she had left it on the bed and that someone else has it::
(8:04:45 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > ::fires a nice two dimensional representation of a dodecahedron in the roof using bullets. Too bad he sucked at math.::
(8:05:05 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Ducks and ambles over to McKnight.::
(8:05:28 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Shoves his rifle into Shelev's arms.:: Hold this for just a second.
(8:05:33 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::moves to the window spot::
(8:05:49 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Confused, but holds.::
(8:06:44 PM) cmdr shelev: Recommend putting something large and heavy through that door?
(8:07:06 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::And McKnight, figuring their attackers will be clustered at the stairwell by now and unable to hear much other than the sound of their own gunfire, vaults over the glassless frame and down into the tunnel.::
(8:07:14 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::momentarily distracted by McKnight, regains her concentration, ready to pounce if someone darkens the doorway::
(8:07:41 PM) cmdr shelev: I meant something inanimate but I guess he has a plan. :confused:
(8:08:00 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: I hope so.
(8:08:04 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Cover the man though.
(8:08:11 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::fires through the door some more:
(8:09:01 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Fires randomly at the door.::
(8:09:28 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Shelev: broadening the definition of 'covering fire' since stardate 58592.::
(8:09:51 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Rolling with the impact, the impact still knocks most of his breath out of him and his shoulder probably won't be appreciating that stunt, but nothing's broken and so he's soon on his feet again, and looking up at the window.::
(8:10:25 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Hopefully, someone will realize phase two of his plan involves getting his rifle back. Otherwise, he's just made a complete ass of himself.::
(8:10:36 PM) LCdr TKirr: ((rofl))

(8:11:58 PM) cmdr shelev: :ghost: > How bout we leave and come back with more guys?
(8:12:24 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks to Shelev expectantly:;
(8:12:44 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Looks at the admiral, looks at the window.::
(8:12:56 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::still concentrates on the doorway, motionless::
(8:12:58 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::mouths:: The Rifle.
(8:13:03 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::looks to the window::
(8:13:05 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Taps his foot impatiently.::
(8:13:09 PM) cmdr shelev: ::Looks at the rifle.:: Oh.
(8:13:12 PM) cmdr shelev: ::TOSS::
(8:13:19 PM) cmdr shelev: ((rolling dice))
(8:13:39 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> The rifle clatters against the window frame, then falls down on the other side.
(8:14:13 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> A renewed hail of gunfire draws more pictures in the roof.
(8:14:35 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Great throw.
(8:14:39 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::fires through the door some more::
(8:15:28 PM) cmdr shelev: ::scoots around the perimeter of the room back towards the locker that t'kirr is standing next to.::
(8:15:43 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Dives to catch the rifle before it hits the tunnel. He doesn't need the noise, and besides, while he can appreciate the simple, fairly reliable design, he doesn't know how durable they built these things.::
(8:16:40 PM) cmdr shelev: ::To T'Kirr:: I think Doug wants a distraction. Think this thing is bolted down?

(8:18:44 PM) LCdr TKirr entered the room.

(8:18:52 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ( :argh: )

(8:26:10 PM) cmdr shelev: ACTION> a small piff of dust comes into the room from the doorway.
(8:26:18 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: ::hears McKnight's firing, then it goes quiet::

(8:27:04 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::Kicks a corpse or two to make sure they're staying down before nodding in grim satisfaction:: All clear!

(8:28:06 PM) MisterBoxingBear: ::As the words leave his mouth, McKnight slings the rifle over his shoulder and kneels down, heroically going through their pockets in search of anything useful.::
(8:28:10 PM) VAdm Blackthorne: Okay, I've had enough of this place.

(8:30:41 PM) LCdr TKirr: ::brushes her hands off as the cabinet topples off to the side, clearing the way:: Aye, Admiral.
