Lost Harbor
Late in the afternoon of the ninth day, our journey into the city has us happening on what appears to be a suitable new home. We have gained entry into the lobby of a riverfront hotel just as snow has started to fall. The cavernous lobby has a floor of dusty, polished stone tiles and glass doors on the opposite side of the entry that lead to an inner courtyard. What lies farther within, and can this place be our new base?

CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:22:15
:: looks through the gap between the doors, then to Wolfe :: CTO: After you?
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:23:41
:: waits outside excitedly with the other crew members crowded around the door, her tail swaying side to side excitedly ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 21:24:03
:: nods at Harper and then walks into the lobby ahead of everyone else, testing the way to make sure it's safe... looking around every nook and cranny... and rather impressed from a tactical standpoint as to the layout and cover. This place will do nicely. He continues to explore deeper and deeper into the lobby ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:24:10
:: looks at the outside of the building, and around :: Self: Holy mother of deities. The architecture is amazing!
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:24:30
:: nods to Kuari :: XO: Go ahead.
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:25:19
:: looks around, inspecting the structure to make sure it's sound after all this time ::
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:25:39
:: squeezes through the doors, her wings held narrowly over her body in order to fit, and trots in, sniffing ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 21:25:54
:: is barely glancing through the door, seemingly asleep ::
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 21:26:03
:: still carrying Grey, he waits for the all-clear to get her inside ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:26:18
:: hangs at the back, waiting her turn to squeeze through the small opening ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:26:21
:: watches the Colonel and Commander through the gap ::
ACTION> The lobby is utterly quiet and undisturbed, with no signs of life.
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 21:28:11
::walks through the doors, just grateful to be in a semi-warm place that has enough beds for everyone::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:28:34
:: looking for cracks and other signs of structural damage ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 01-Apr-2020 21:28:39
::Quietly follows along behind the others, scanning the room from under his hood.::
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:28:42
:: can quickly tell no one has lived here in a long time just by the smells, her movements showing less need to be stealthy, and instinctively takes the opposite side of Wolfe to clear the room faster ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:29:14
:: doesn't say anything as Ilaihr Ilaihrs on in ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 21:29:18
:: has now seen all points in the lobby :: CO: All clear, Captain.
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:29:48
:: waves to everyone else :: All: It is clear.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:30:14
:: meets up with Wolfe somewhere in the middle of the lobby, content, then takes a better look at the architecture and amenities themselves, a smile returning to her face ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:30:16
:: follows the group into the lobby, looking around. She sighs with relief, just glad to be out of the snow for now ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:30:25
:: continues her survey as they move inside ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 21:30:44
:: heads to the glass doors to check out the courtyard, to see if there are any other places from which it could be accessible. ::
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 21:31:12
:: carries Grey through the doors and, after a look around, selects a couch and gently places her on it ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:31:47
:: walks into the lobby, and guns for the walls, marveling at the details ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:31:56
:: finally makes her way inside, assessing the situation ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 21:32:15
:: tucks into another ball as she felt herself being settled on a couch, blinking slowly before settling to fall back asleep ::
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 21:32:50
:: discreetly stretches after a day of dragging and carrying ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:33:13
:: she is immediately drawn to the glass doors and peers through them into the courtyard ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:33:56
:: looks toward the front desk, trying to find the employee areas, where a first aid or medical kit might be.. ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:34:07
:: nods, trying to be satisfied that the building is not going to collapse on them ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:34:46
:: she tries the door and finds it unlocked, though a bit hesitant to slide ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:34:57
:: runs up to Harper :: CO: Have you looked at the detail in this building?! It is absolutely amazing! :: squeaks, and goes back to scurrying around ::
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 21:35:45
::looks around for any local guides or maps, since hotels usually have that sort of information in the lobby::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:35:50
SCI: I have noticed it, yes!
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:35:58
:: climbs over the front desk to search through it, whistling lowly as she finds a screen and dusts it off :: Self: Cool.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 01-Apr-2020 21:35:59
::The branch that has become his; one with nature cane; echoes as it taps on the floor. He raises his hand up, as if reaching out for something, stopping in his tracks, whilst his hood jostled; showing he was gazing all about underneath it.::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:36:58
:: continues opening the door, then peeks out into the courtyard ::
ACTION> The front desk contains only computer terminals, their screens long dark.
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:37:31
:: looks around for stairs ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:38:15
:: notes the courtyard and approaches Kate :: CO: What do you see?
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:38:15
ACTION> There are, however, stairs; a sweeping staircase ascends to the upper level.
CSO: A place to build the fire!
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:38:57
:: trots around, taking note of all exits from the room, and stops at the base of a staircase, looking up ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:39:08
Ooooh, nice. :: takes one step up, and then runs up ::
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:39:37
:: watches Jude rush ahead, then bounds up the stairs after her ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:39:53
XO: Race you to the top!
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:40:08
:: gives up on the computers and heads out from behind the desk to see what the others are up to ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:40:21
ACTION> The courtyard is largely a patio with interspersed overgrown greenery, a water feature that stopped flowing long ago, and outdoor furniture.
ACTION> Other entrances to the courtyard are visible, from similar glass doors around the lower levels.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:41:34
:: takes the challenge and uses all four legs to ascend the stairs quickly, feeling Jude's enthusiasm at their fortune ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:41:52
ACTION> The courtyard's upper level contains balconies, presumably accessible from the upper rooms.
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:41:58
:: idles out onto the courtyard as well, looking around appreciatively :: All: These people knew how to decorate.
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:42:12
:: runs up the stairs, hands gliding against the handrails, and laughing ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:42:14
MED: This must have been beautiful, not so long ago.
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 21:42:17
::makes a disappointed "poot" noise, looking for some sort of interior layout sketch on a wall so she can figure out which direction the rooms are::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:42:29
ACTION> The second-level hallway is darkened and lined with doors.
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 21:42:44
::tries a door::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 21:42:54
:: stirs awake, pushing herself off the couch and placing her feet on the ground, pushing into a standing position to limp towards the stairs, curious at where it lead up to ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:42:54
:: nods in agreement, pointing to the broken water feature :: CO: That was probably really cool.
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:43:40
CO/MED: It's always fascinated me to see how nature reclaims things.
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:43:54
:: looks down the dark hallway :: XO: I wonder if there are suites.
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 21:44:32
:: steps to the middle of the Courtyard, taking stock of the entrances and tactical weaknesses of anyone who might be standing in his current position. Once satisfied that he knows the courtyard well enough, he heads back inside, starts walking the first floor's hallways to find other entrances that might give any threat purchase upon his charge ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:44:42
:: hands on her thighs, she looks up to the roof, wondering if there are solar tiles up there :: CSO/MED: It may be again, if we restore power. But, that comes later.
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:45:06
:: nods lightly :: CO: It'll just be nice for everyone to sleep in a bed, for now.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:45:21
:: peers at Jude standing next to her, then moves slowly down the hallway ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:45:26
ACTION> The door Tailor tries is locked.
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:45:55
:: frowns, unhappy at the thought of disrupting what nature has reclaimed, but quickly banishes the thought as silly ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:46:05
MED: That much is certain. :: makes her way back inside ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:46:55
:: heads back inside as well, rubbing her arms. She rolls her shoulders, looking up :: CO: The others went upstairs.
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:47:31
:: starts walking down the hall, testing the doors ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 01-Apr-2020 21:47:38
::Kneels down on the spot, blowing on the ground beneath him and brushing off some dust; merely inspecting it, as he had with their shack in the woods. He lets out a gentle hum to himself, as he stand back up, and begins moving up the stair like a spectre patrolling this haunted house.::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:47:41
ACTION> The doors upstairs are unlocked!
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:47:56
:: peeks into one of the rooms ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:48:05
:: lingers in the courtyard a little while longer, letting her thoughts wander a bit before joining the others inside ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:48:19
:: looks around for a staircase, wondering about the people above ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:48:29
ACTION> The snow starts to fall just a bit more heavily.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:48:32
:: stops, craning her neck to look in after Jude as she enters a room ::
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 21:48:46
::tries the next door over::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 21:48:51
:: is leaning against the stairway, glancing down to see Harper and Acacia re-entering the building and giving a slight grin to her friend :: MED: Save the lecture until I get into a bed. :: calls down to Acacia :: MED: But I'll take help if you're offering!
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:49:04
:: opens door fully, and walks in :: Hm.
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:49:14
:: shivers against the cold ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:49:31
:: gives Grey a look that expresses her disappointment, having expected nothing less ::
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 21:49:35
:: stares at Grey ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:49:55
:: walks up to Grey and wordlessly hooks an arm under her shoulder to act as her crutch, or perhaps just drag her around.. ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:50:21
ACTION> The door Jude tries leads to a darkened hotel room, fairly well-appointed, with a kitchenette and a small living area leading into a bedroom and bathroom.
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:50:48
:: frowns at Grey; a tactical officer really should have better judgment ::
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:51:04
:: follows Jude in once the door is opened, eyes wide and dilated in the darkness, approving of the accommodations ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:51:32
:: looks at bed :: XO: Think it'll hold ya?
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 21:51:58
:: sighs and makes his way up to Grey and Acacia to offer help once again ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:52:25
:: knows how hard Navarro worked to get her here without further injury ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:52:56
ACTION> The first-floor door Tailor tries is also locked, but it does not appear to lead to a room, either... perhaps an office?
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:53:51
:: looks towards the bed :: SCI: Oh, I didn't think about it, I don't usually sleep on one. But yes, it's big enough.
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 21:54:39
::has a thought of looking for something resembling a first aid room... which somehow is not locked::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 01-Apr-2020 21:55:35
::Walks out onto one of the balconies, looking out over the courtyard; his gaze wanders to the skyline, looking at the buildings around them, feeling the emptiness and the silence of the streets.:: Self: Hmmmm....
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 21:56:00
:: tests some hotel doors as he passes by in the hallway, checking their status to see if they're locked. But what he's really looking for is doors that lead outside the building, both into the courtyard and to the surrounding area. ::
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:56:15
:: moves to a set of closed curtains and pokes her head through ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:56:33
ACTION> Kuari can see into the courtyard through a dirty sliding door.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:56:50
SCI: Nice view!
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 21:56:53
:: sneezes at the curtain dust and walks over :: XO: Ooh. It is.
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:57:11
ACTION> Most doors that Wolfe tries as he goes down the hall are unlocked, leading to rooms containing sliding-glass doors to the courtyard.
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 21:57:19
:: pulls Grey towards the rooms, trying doors to see if another one opens ::
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 21:57:22
::snaps her fingers and doubles back to the lobby to look behind the desk for keys::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 21:57:30
:: blinks innocently at the two, before relaxing and taking the help, expression apologetic ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:57:39
:: is too mad to be near Grey because a lecture will ensue, so stays in the lobby until she cools off ::
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 21:58:04
:: gets under Grey's other arm and helps her along ::
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 21:58:10
:: shifts her weight and lifts one paw to pull at the sliding door ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 21:58:18
:: lingers near Lexy, thinking about priorities ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:58:46
CO: Sorry. I'm just... Ugh.
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 21:59:04
:: finds no doors to outside and is happy with the level of security. One entrance and exit. Good. He continues the rest of the way around the courtyard and back to the lobby, and heads once again out to the courtyard, happy with the security of the building. ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 21:59:53
CO: It's like she doesn't understand that when she risks further injury, it puts all of us at risk. It's unbelievably selfish.
:: quietly ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 22:00:45
:: makes her way into one of the hotel rooms to drop Grey off on the bed. She sighs, rumbling lowly and as threateningly as she can manage :: TAC2: If I have to just sit with you I will, you know.
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:01:11
CSO: Marines believe themselves to be invincible, you know. :: smiles and changes the subject, hoping to get her mind moving past it :: We need to try the water here, and then after that, our priority should be a fire in the courtyard. Do you agree?
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 22:01:39
TAC2: I didn't drag and carry you all this way for you to get even more hurt, Ryleigh. Take it easy!
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 22:02:08
:: grumbles something that sounds affirmative , folding her arms across her chest ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:03:04
:: quietly :: CSO: Acacia and Navarro have it handled, love.
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 22:03:46
:: didn't hear anything that would indicate that, but nods, agreeing to drop it ::
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 22:03:55
:: manages to slide the door open, and the cold air rushes in. She wiggles her way through the opening and stands to brace herself on the railing to look down at the courtyard, yipping to catch the attention of those below ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 22:04:13
:: blinks up at Acacia's grumble, and attention drifting to Navarro, eyes darkening slightly as she dropped her gaze to stare down at her hands, uninjured scratching at the other splint as she nodded :: MED/NAV: Understood. :: there was a verbal struggle to get that one word out, before she slowly laid back on the bed ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:04:15
:: didn't need to hear anything since she saw the looks they gave Grey ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 22:04:28
:: hears the yip and looks outside ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:04:53
:: also hears and pokes her head out into the snow ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 22:04:53
:: shouts out to the courtyard :: YOOOOOOOO
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 22:05:07
:: sighs, sitting down on the bed beside her and gesturing for Navarro to leave them alone, her gaze to him apologetic ::
NAV Lt Navarro 01-Apr-2020 22:05:45
:: nods to Emily, gives Grey a look that, below the surface, shows concern under his irritation, then leaves ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 01-Apr-2020 22:05:49
::Has flashes from the crew's time in Gencodian memory banks, of people practically marching, filling the streets as they move en masse to the same destination. The towering majesty of the device looming over them as they entered the grand Colosseum, and then the blinding light of a divine dream scorching their essence away... And he was back again. He shook his head, and turned about, realising he has more pressing matters to attend to.::
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 22:05:57
::hears a faint 'yip' from outside and turns her head to that direction::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 22:06:49
:: hears the yip distantly through the window, attention turning to it before glancing to Acacia :: MED: Did... I just hear Commander Kuari yip? About what?
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:07:10
:: spies Kuari and Jude, then waves up at the balcony ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 22:07:23
CO: The rooms are all open!
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 22:07:33
:: also waves ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 22:07:36
:: pauses a moment to gaze distantly at the floor, then shrugs :: TAC2: She's not in pain. Probably just calling someone?
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 22:07:38
:: smiles down at Harper and Wright ::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 22:07:51
:: glances at Grey's wrist :: TAC2: You, on the other hand..
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 22:07:57
CO: in a place this large, we should let the taps run for a few minutes before trying the water.
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 22:07:58
:: steps up next to Harper to report ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:08:11
SCI: Wonderful! :: grins ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 22:08:30
CO: Plenty of beds and showers for everyone!
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:08:32
:: notes Wolfe's giant presence and turns :: CTO: How is the place, Colonel?
CMO Lt Tailor 01-Apr-2020 22:08:57
::gives up on the keys for now and looks up at mention of rooms being open::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 22:09:15
:: hums in quiet acceptance of the other's answer, offering her wrist :: MED: No movement unless someone's here to help me, no overdoing it, etc. :: not hesitating to give her wrist over to Acacia ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 22:09:47
CO: I'm happy with this building from a tactical standpoint. Only one way in or out :: points at the front entrance :: and I'll be able to keep everyone safe here. This is a great base of operations.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 22:10:10
:: turns her head to Jude next to her :: SCI: We should test if the water runs.
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:10:21
CTO: That is great news, thank you. I had hoped that it would be, since it seemed so promising.
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 22:10:25
TAC2: Why? :: she asks in tune with the conversation, as if she was genuinely asking--with the tone of 'why bother?' ::
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 22:10:39
XO: Oh! Yes. :: runs back into the room, and into the bathroom, and turns on the sink ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 22:11:23
XO: Let it run for several minutes before trying to drink!
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 22:11:40
MED: Because I get tired of relying on others. I'm a prideful person by nature, and I prefer to be the one doing the aiding versus needing the aid. :: remarks, turning her gaze to look at Acacia ::
CTO LtC Wolfe 01-Apr-2020 22:11:57
CO: I suggest you and everyone take upstairs rooms. I will take a room at the foot of the stairs, so that I can keep tabs on anyone that might decide to visit.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 22:12:01
:: leans over the railing to nod at Wright, then ducks back into the room to check on Jude ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:13:09
ACTION> The faucet shudders and groans, then starts coughing out brown water, ever more steadily as the seconds pass.
SCI LtJG Jude 01-Apr-2020 22:13:22
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:13:31
:: nods in agreement :: CTO: That makes sense.
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 22:13:46
:: flinches at Jude's shout ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 01-Apr-2020 22:14:22
::Continues to shade through the halls, quickly checking the rooms as he goes by, building a mental map of the place; again much like he did with the cabin.:: Self: Must locate any power generation. ::Uses his power to appear next to everyone at varying moments, to simply look at the rooms they're standing in, and disappear again.:: Not any of those places. ::Slowly plods back down the stairs again.::
MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 22:14:38
:: smirks slightly, letting out a slight exhale. It was always a big step with someone started dropping lines a therapist might say. She returns the look a moment later, shrugging :: TAC2: But at least you know that. Here's the thing, though.. :: she wags a finger, looking around the room :: TAC2: There's also the secondary factor that you don't even consider your own pain enough of a problem for you to work on. What if you spent your energy making a crutch for yourself, hm?
XO Cdr Kuari 01-Apr-2020 22:15:49
:: is momentarily startled by Ilaihr's presence, but continues to watch the water until it begins to clear ::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 01-Apr-2020 22:16:17
:: blinks in slight surprise at Acacia's suggestion, pushing herself up into a sitting position :: MED: Wait... you'd allow me to do that? :: is startled, swinging herself over the edge of the bed to look at Acacia ::
CO Capt Harper 01-Apr-2020 22:16:18
CTO: We are going to need some firewood, Benedict. Perhaps we, along with Kuari and Navarro, could take a trip over to the park next door?

Between it and a few more bits he was able to grab, he's got enough now by himself to get them through the night.

MED Lt Acacia 01-Apr-2020 23:18:37

I really should stop joking about you guys being our taxi service. :: winks at her with a strong sense of respect ::
CSO Cdr Wright 01-Apr-2020 23:21:35
