Lost Harbor
On the evening of the ninth day, our away team has returned to the hotel that now serves as our makeshift home, having achieved their mission to gather firewood in the nearby forested area that was once a park. Unfortunately, while they were in the park, our lumberjacks were attacked by horned lupine creatures with whip-like tails, and Captain Harper suffered a bite to her arm.

:: sits down, wincing ::
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:19:54
XO: Can you go see if there's a bar please? And bring back something that would dull the pain... Not ideal, but I don't exactly have any anesthetic here.

XO Cdr Kuari 08-Apr-2020 21:21:39
:: peers at Tailor again at her request, but focuses on Harper :: CO: Your wound needs disinfecting. Would you mind? :: she slips her thin tongue out the front of her mouth, as if presenting it ::

:: blinks a few times, then remembers a detail from Kuari's file ::

CEO LCdr Ilaihr 08-Apr-2020 21:28:11
::Trails along up a set of stairs, making a final sweep of the building before he tries anything.::
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:28:57
:: expected Kuari's tongue to be cat-like, for some reason, so she's surprised to find it somewhat smoother than that ::
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:28:58
::gives an inward shudder, licking the wound is completely the opposite of what she would normally recommend::
SCI LtJG Jude 08-Apr-2020 21:29:17

SCI LtJG Jude 08-Apr-2020 21:32:59
:: walks over to Harper, and momentarily looks at the licking :: CO: Err- quick question. Is there some Gencodian equivalent of open sesame?
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:33:40
:: chuckles :: SCI: Even if there were, no power.
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:33:52
:: looks up at Jude while her arm is being licked :: SCI: With no electricity, what would hear you say that?
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:34:41
CMO/MED: Are we sure that whatever bit her isn't venomous?
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:35:54
:: looks Harper up and down thoughtfully :: CSO: I'm gonna say... no. If it were, we'd be able to tell pretty quick.
SCI LtJG Jude 08-Apr-2020 21:36:01
:: curses to herself again, and goes off to find Ilaihr to resume a search for. whatever turns on the electric ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 08-Apr-2020 21:36:03
::Pauses a moment, stopping at a staircase he had sworn he hadn't seen before; at the far end of the hotel. Starts walking up them, curiously.::
TAC2 1Lt Grey 08-Apr-2020 21:36:13
:: slowly moves to the door, hopping on one foot to keep the other pressure-free, wandering into the hall and to the edge of the stairs, peering down curiously, using the railing for support to make her way down, curious what had happened ::
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:36:21
CMO/MED: I do not feel any adverse effects, other than it hurting like hell.
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:36:32
CO: And the pain is localized?
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:36:55
ACTION> When Ilaihr reaches the top of the stairs, he finds a gate blocking more stairs up with a sign on it.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:36:56
:: frowns :: CO: I thought you were "fine"?
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:37:03
:: nods to Acacia ::

MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:37:09
:: nods back :: CO: Good.
:: turns to Wright, putting a hand on her shoulder. She lowers her voice a bit, leaning in. :: CSO: She is.
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:37:40
::waits for Kuari to be done licking::
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:37:51
CSO: Want to sit down? :: she gestures to a nearby lobby couch ::
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:37:59

CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:38:02
:: smiles at her wife, hoping to soothe her :: CSO: I am in good hands, so yes.
XO: Thank you, Kuari. Yet again, I am in your debt.
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:38:08
::looks at the wound for any sign of venom reaction, after swabbing the area with alcohol and a bandage::
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:38:23
ACTION> The wound shows no sign of venom.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:38:51
:: fails to take the hint from Acacia ::
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 08-Apr-2020 21:39:04
::Looks over the writing on the sign, as he noted the font and form of the sign itself, to determine it's meaning; before analysing the gate for a latch or lock.::
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:39:07
CSO: Did you see a bar in the restaurant? I didn't look.
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:39:26
ACTION> The sign is polite in font, and the gate is latched.
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:40:05
:: chuckles, grabbing Wright's hand instead and gently tugging her along as she takes a step towards the restaurant :: CMO/CSO: We'll go look!
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:41:26

XO Cdr Kuari 08-Apr-2020 21:41:54
:: notes the presence of medical supplies and two doctors, and decides she's no longer needed here. CO: Wolfe and I should go get what we can from the wolves. CO/CMO: Do you think they're safe to eat?

:: finally finds Ilaihr :: CEO: Anything new?
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 08-Apr-2020 21:42:02
Self: Perhaps... "Please close the gate" I wonder? Or "Employees only."? ::Reaches for the latch.::
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:42:24
:: releases Wright's hand as she begins following. Knowing the commander is especially stressed and distracted she keeps her eyes peeled for signs of alcohol as they head towards the restaurant. She lets the silence linger for a moment so Wright's pulse can slow down. ::
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:42:26

CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:43:26
NAV: Yes! Front pocket of my pack. :: gestures at it ::
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:43:47

NAV Lt Navarro 08-Apr-2020 21:43:55
CO: ¡Gracias! :: heads over to retrieve it ::
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:44:35
:: smiles warmly, searching what looks to have been a cooler and opening a few bottles to gingerly sniff them :: CSO: Yup.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:45:08
:: looks under countertops and in cabinets for bottles ::
NAV Lt Navarro 08-Apr-2020 21:45:17
:: finds the lighter in Harper's pack, then moves back out to the courtyard to burn stuff ::
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:46:27
CO: Hopefully they won't be too long. ::wipes down her hands and the needle with alcohol from the little bottle, to sterilize as much as she can.:: CO: Keep putting pressure on the wound.
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:46:44

CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:47:11
:: finds a few bottles that are interestingly shaped and pulls them out to smell them, though Emily's reaction to hers gives her a moment's pause ::
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:47:42
:: presses on the bandage that Tailor applied ::
:: winces and sucks air in through her teeth, wondering why this seems to hurt more than it looks like it should ::
ACTION> As Wright and Acacia search, the bottles becomes more ornate and decorative, and start to smell more pleasant.
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:49:42
:: tries another of the same bottle and realizes it's whatever that is, pushing all of the bottles with that label to the side and moving on to search another shelf :: CSO: Well, I'm glad we're at least together.
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:52:14
XO: Right, wolf meat. It wouldn't be my first choice, but I suppose if we had to eat it, we could.
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:52:50
:: sniffs something that's definitely alcohol, but she's not sure how safe. She sets it aside :: CSO: Uh, pile for.. things to bring to Kate to read.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:52:55
:: is unsure what she means:: MED: I'm very glad I'm not alone with the Colonel anymore, if that's what you mean. No offense to him. Just.
XO Cdr Kuari 08-Apr-2020 21:53:14
:: nods to both Tailor and Harper, already turning away :: CO/CMO: We'll get going then. The hunt came to us, this time!
CMO Lt Tailor 08-Apr-2020 21:53:14
::wonders why it's taking so long to find a bottle or two of hard liquor::
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:53:21
:: laugh-snorts :: CSO: I know what you mean.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:53:23
:: nods and adds a couple bottles to the pile herself ::
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:53:30
XO: Be careful, in case there are more.
CEO LCdr Ilaihr 08-Apr-2020 21:53:54
::Reaches a bit more for the latch.:: SCI: Also, more stairs.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:54:22
MED: Do you want to take these few in, while I keep looking?
XO Cdr Kuari 08-Apr-2020 21:55:03
:: meets up with Wolfe standing nearby, and they both double-time it out of the hotel and towards the park ::
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:55:16
:: nods, taking one last moment to give Wright a smile and a meaningful look that says it's all gonna be okay. She scoops up the bottles of presumed booze and heads back to the Captain ::
NAV Lt Navarro 08-Apr-2020 21:55:55
:: lights the fire, and nurtures it along until it really gets going ::
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 21:56:05
:: offers a faint smile in return, but redoubles her efforts to keep looking ::
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:56:10
ACTION> The sun slips below the horizon, and twilight sets in.
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:56:24
:: walks up and shows the Captain the bottles :: CO: Alright, time to translate.
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:57:47
:: smiles and takes a bottle in one hand, then wipes the dust off the label on her pants before eyeing it ::
Let's see...
I do not know this word, perhaps a brand name, definitely a proper noun...
Ah! This word is alcohol!

SCI LtJG Jude 08-Apr-2020 21:59:06
CEO: Brilliant. Think it'll lead up to the power?
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 21:59:06
CO: Ooh, promising. It smelled potable to me.
CO Capt Harper 08-Apr-2020 21:59:39
I am not certain of this word; it is new to me, but in context, it is the style of the drink, and it is definitely not the word for wine.
CSO Cdr Wright 08-Apr-2020 22:00:01
:: finds a few other colorful, interestingly-shaped bottles that smell promising and sets them aside ::
MED Lt Acacia 08-Apr-2020 22:00:47

CO: I'm going to need to do this before it gets completely dark in here. All: If there's some kind of candles or something, that's be a big help.
