Morning of the fourth day here has come, bringing fog and steady rain along with it. By mid-morning, the Tailor party is journeying through the forest, following Ilaihr’s telepathic nose toward the Wright/Wolfe camp.

CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:21:53
:: huddled under the shelter next to the fire, working on the net, which is coming along nicely ::
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:22:52
::is tromping through the forest holding her torch for light, following Ilaihr and the others::
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:23:11
:: sits beside Wright, also working on the net. She admires it, walking Wright through the process as they go. :: CSO: So we'll tie up two ends, then let the rest of the net settle. The best way to do it is have it the width of the river, wait a bit for some fish to gather, then you just yank up the back of the net and you're golden.
TAC2 1Lt Grey18-Dec-2019 21:23:19
:: is fast asleep, curled into Acacia, using her as a pillow ::
CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 21:23:38
:: wakes up, having taken the previous shift, and then having slept a few hours. He simply opens his eyes, looks up, and mentally assesses the situation. Still out in the middle of - well, since he doesn't know where it is, can't even call it nowhere - wherever he is. And the feeling of the cold comes rushing in, the rain that started during the night finally registering, and realizing just how cold he is now. ::
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:23:46

CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 21:24:06
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:24:34

CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 21:26:09

NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:27:19

MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:27:36
:: nods, pushing a fist into each square at the end of the process of tightening the knots :: CSO: Yes, it only catches bigger ones, which is good. You always want to spare the young if you can. :: doesn't even realize she's passed into preaching territory ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey18-Dec-2019 21:28:00
:: is cold and wet and absolutely damn miserable, curling up tighter into Acacia ::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:28:16
:: nods, thinking that it makes sense from a scientific standpoint ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 21:29:21
:: stares at Kate with wide eyes, attempting to process the implications of her statement :: CO: Gencodian? Really? :: looks at the hairbrush, attempting to see what she did ::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:30:06
MED: How long do you think until this is finished enough to use?
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:30:15
:: angles the writing toward Kuari, knowing that she might recognize the form of the script even if she can't read it :: XO: Absolutely.
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:32:09
:: looks at the size, pondering on the river :: CSO: We should be good to go soon. It doesn't have to touch each bank of the river, usually being almost as wide is enough. But.. :: she vaguely gestures to Grey :: Just a bit longer, eh?
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:33:47
:: starts whistling, quietly ::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:34:29
MED: It would probably help to throw bugs into the water as bait, right? :: her fingers are starting to ache, but she keeps knotting methodically ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 21:35:24
:: studies the writing intently :: CO: I do recognize it...and I trust you can read it. That's...incredible. :: she looked away, observing the walls with a new light ::
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:35:37
:: shrugs, thinking :: CSO: Sure, worth a shot. Where I've done this.. they're just following the current, but I don't know about these fish.
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:35:46
::peers ahead of them, looking for signs of the other camp past the torchlight::
TAC2 1Lt Grey18-Dec-2019 21:36:04
:: stirs slightly, before settling again with her head pillowed on Acacia's thigh, curled tightly. She was tired, running on very little sleep. ::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:37:40
:: lets out a long breath, biting her lip as she thinks :: XO: I do not think this is Gencodia. Even if we were on the side of the moon away from the gas giant, it is too... large. The horizon is farther away, and the gravity feels stronger.
SCI LtJG Jude18-Dec-2019 21:37:52
:: is following behind, groaning ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 21:39:00
:: sits on the floor, still looking around :: CO: A Gencodian outpost, then.
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:39:49
XO: This is new. :: gesticulates with the brush while she talks :: We never found any evidence that they left Gencodia, instead choosing to flee by transcending. Also...
ACTION> Jude has a fever and is nauseous.
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:40:44
SCI: Are you doing ok? ::offers her an arm to lean on as they are walking::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:41:49
:: finally continues the thought :: XO: We have never seen anything Gencodian that was not from twenty thousand years ago.
:: looks around :: This is all somewhat newer than that...
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 21:42:17
:: whispers :: They survived...
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:43:08
XO: I hope so. It beats the only other alternative explanation I can come up with...
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:43:34
:: moves in to offer Jude an arm on the other side from Tailor ::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:44:16
Camp: I haven't heard anything from Ilaihr, have any of you?
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:45:32
:: lets that thought fade away as she pockets the hairbrush ::
:: then is relieved to actually have pockets again ::
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:46:00
:: closes her eyes and clears her mind, but then shrugs and shakes her head ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 21:46:51
:: turns and walks towards the main room again, still looking and thinking ::
CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 21:47:13
:: finally sits up, still lost in thought, which is rare for him. But he looks around, taking survey of the situation. :: CSO: He's still not back? Hmm. Old man tends to wander like a cat. Still, it has been a while.
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:47:14
::looks Jude over as best she can, wishing desperately for her normal medkit. She's clammy and pale, looking like she's going to pass out.:: NAV: I may need to drain the wound to let the venom out. Ideally, I'd give her an antivenom, but it's not like I can just pull one out of the forest without knowing what I'm looking for. ::sounds frustrated::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:47:27
:: trails after Kuari, wanting to examine every detail of the house, but that's not the most important task at hand ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey18-Dec-2019 21:47:40
:: jerks awake suddenly, reaching up to rub her forehead tiredly, slowly pushing herself up from Acacia, blinking at the other. :: MED: A-Apologies for falling asleep on you... I just... got really tired.
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:48:04
CMO: If I can help, at all, let me know what to do, doctora.
CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 21:48:41
CSO/Camp: His first week aboard Atlantis, he set off so many alarms, but it turned out he was harmlessly exploring, getting to know his vessel.
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:48:47
CTO: The last contact was last night at nightfall and he seemed far away, so let's hope he found someplace safe to bed down for the night.
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:48:57
:: shakes her head, dismissing the notion with a wave of her hand :: TAC2: We all need a little human contact.
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:49:55
:: ducks into the washroom to see what might still be working ::
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:50:04
::and holds Jude up from landing on the ground as she teeters forwards:: NAV: She's passed out! Help me hold her up...
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:50:29
:: swoops in to catch Jude and support her ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey18-Dec-2019 21:50:33
:: straightens, arching her back to coax a loud set of cracks and pops from her spine and shoulders, almost like a cat ::
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:51:07
NAV: Any idea how close we are to the camp?
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 21:51:45
:: after looking around for a moment, notices the light out the windows :: CO: I really should go hunt. I want to stay, but...it will be better with food.
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:51:46
CMO: No, I imagine only the Commander knows, but he is in a bit of a trance, it would seem.
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:52:15
ACTION> Noon arrives.
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:53:10
:: holds up her section of the net :: MED: I... think I'm done?
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:53:21
:: claps her hands together :: All: Right, since you're awake, want to give this a go?
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:53:36
::examines the site of the spider bite:: NAV: Ok, just put her down, on that mossy bank over there. ::fishes for her sharpest flint knife::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:54:45
XO: I will work on a fire, then. Help me close the front door before you go, though, and we will use the back. :: she presses a button on what's clearly the toilet, but it's certainly funny-looking, and watches as it floods with dirty water, which clears up quickly, given Kuari's earlier efforts ::
CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 21:54:46
:: is out exploring the land, finding some high ground to get a look around. ::
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:55:31
:: eases Jude down onto the mossy bank and gets Ilaihr's attention to pause ::
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 21:56:24
NAV: I don't suppose you'd somehow happen to have a flask with some alcohol? ::Of course he probably doesn't, but it can't hurt to ask::
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 21:57:17
:: chuckles :: CMO: Believe me, if I did, it would not have lasted to the fourth day.
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 21:57:21
:: hops up, gesturing the girls to follow her and grabbing a handfull of the large net ::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 21:57:44
:: stands up and does so, not relishing going out into the rain but hungry enough to get damp ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey18-Dec-2019 21:58:13
:: slowly stands to follow Acacia, staggering slightly before restoring her balance and following the others ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 21:59:06
:: moves to the front door and takes the outside position and waits for Kate before they work to shut it ::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 21:59:54
XO: I think this works! Be out in a second!
:: closes the door and lowers the cargo pants to sit on the toilet and urinate, thinking for a moment on the fact that she was unable to find any underwear in the Gencodian clothes ::
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 22:01:08
:: leads them to the river. She looks, walks down the river a bit, then points to two trees on either side of the river. She begins stringing up the net by braiding more vines around the tree, tying it to the loose corner of the net. She hands each of them one of the other corners :: CSO/TAC2: One of you has to cross with me.
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 22:01:20
NAV: I know, It was a longshot. I just need something for sterilizing this knife. Less than ideal conditions. ::eyes the spider bite, and how the venom is making the area puff up like a balloon. ::ok, here goes nothing... makes an incision to drain the bite::
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 22:01:47
:: watches, wishing he could do more to help ::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 22:02:01
ACTION> Greenish goo spurts out of the incision.
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 22:02:16
:: holds up a finger and goes back to camp briefly, taking off her pants and leaving them in a dry place near the fire ::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 22:02:35
:: hits the button again to flush, and shrieks when cold water unexpectedly sprays on her from something similar to a bidet ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 22:04:03
:: hears Kate's cry and darts back inside, but is unaware of where it came from and stops in the middle :: CO: Kate!
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 22:04:17
::Lets the pus and venom drain out until most of it seems to be gone:: NAV: Get me some water in a leaf to flush the wound.
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 22:04:52
:: wades across the cold river, holding up her shirt as needed to keep it from getting wet ::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 22:05:15
XO: I am fine! :: starts laughing :: Unexpected blast of cold water from the toilet!
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 22:05:33
:: grins, kicks off Ryleigh's boots, and wades across to tie up the other corner of the net ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 22:06:44
:: points her nose towards the washroom and cocks her head, attempting to understand why the toilet would do that, then grins :: CO: You scared me.
CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 22:06:44
:: has been walking at a mostly-gentle incline for a couple hours since shortly after he woke up, in search of anything that would give him a hint as to where they are. Finally, he comes to a clearing big enough to see some distance over the trees behind him from the far end. Seeing the smoke from the fire that Wright has been stoking, now several klicks away. Beyond it, a thick canopy of trees, and at the horizon a mountain range that would take far too long to reach without vehicles. He takes a short break and finishes the quarter of a fish he had brought with him. ::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 22:07:15
MED: Now what? :: shivering ::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 22:07:32
:: pats herself dry with a nearby towel and pulls her pants up, still laughing as she opens the door :: XO: Sorry! It was worth it to pee without squatting in the woods!
CEO LCdr Ilaihr18-Dec-2019 22:08:28
::Sits on the ground, with his eyes closed.::
NAV Lt Navarro18-Dec-2019 22:09:06
:: returns in a few minutes with a leaf cupped in each hand, a bit of water in each ::
MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 22:09:46
:: points a bit further upstream, calling :: CSO/TAC2: Walk up a bit.. :: she wades a bit, kicking some loose dirt over the part of the net that sits under its future victims before heading back to where Ryleigh is. All said it would be mostly submerged, but if Ryleigh and Alexis pulled their ends up, it would sweep up all the fish above it. Acacia flops down to sit by the shore, nodding :: CSO/TAC2: We wait for a bit. Did you grab your bait?
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 22:09:53
:: emerges from the washroom with a dumb smile, finding that way funnier than she otherwise would ::
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 22:10:10
NAV: Thank you. ::takes the water from Navarro as he hands it to her, tipping it over Jude's wound to flush out the remaining green goo and blood::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 22:10:29
:: rolls over a nearby log and looks under it for bugs ::
CO Capt Harper18-Dec-2019 22:10:40
ACTION> There are bugs under the log.
ACTION> The water flushes out a bit of the liquid, but not much, since what's in there is pretty viscous.
TAC2 1Lt Grey18-Dec-2019 22:11:43
:: collapses on the shore again, settling next to and resting again on Acacia, tired as can be ::
XO Cdr Kuari18-Dec-2019 22:11:44
:: grins further, surprised at Kate's mirth ::
CSO Cdr Wright18-Dec-2019 22:12:24
:: grabs handfuls of bugs, crunching a couple that look relatively tasty and showing the rest to Acacia before tossing them into the river above the net, knowing some will get swept away but hoping many of them will serve as bait ::
CMO Lt Tailor18-Dec-2019 22:13:34
::rinses off the flint knife she's using and tries to excise the remaining visible green stuff out of the bite as much as possible.::
CTO LtC Wolfe18-Dec-2019 22:13:45
:: walks full-circle around the clearing, looking across and over it, not finding anything of note in any direction besides the camp that he's currently calling home, and that the top of the hill is not far, but with the canopy of trees running solidly all the way to the top. Still, he might as well continue to see if there is anything to be spotted. So having fully circled around the meadow and now back at the top, he continues on up the hill. ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr18-Dec-2019 22:14:30
::Hold his hand out and hums, sening out a call like he had done the previous day, hoping something comes to him.::

MED Lt Acacia18-Dec-2019 22:22:52
:: chuckles, lifting her hand and waves a finger, gesturing to the trees the net is tied to :: CSO: So you'll pull the corner towards you, and up. If you were alone you'd tie it up, but if we can hold it you can just grab the fish and toss them onto land. Or a bucket. But heh.. :: she shrugs ::

CEO: This is a strange world. Some of the stars I have seen here, look familiar, but other's are not. Perhaps we simply saw them from an extreme angle we are unused to seeing them from.... or perhaps we are not when we should be.

CEO: It could be a simulation, but not a holographic one. No hologram could trick my senses, like this. And if that is the case, then we are encased in a machine, with devices probing our minds.
