Mission SummaryThe fort was quiet. Red Squirrel, Skunk, Ziqqurat, and Wombat prepared for the mission. Wombat's baby maggot bailed due to mission length intimidation, Grimlocke bailed due to unforeseen events. No Leotard. No Bane. Dr. Claw was on another mission. Would these four lonely pilots bear the full burden of tasks before them? Would we find a navigator? Did no one like lawn games?!
Suddenly reinforcements trickled in. Excess, Gritty, and Acehole materialized in the fort, and Threespeed, Deadbride, Grog, and Deadblow were waiting outside. This mission just might make it after all.
After talking Deadblow into navigating, the fleet was off. Within minutes Strangelove dropped propulsion transfer conduit twice but Threespeed and Deadbride wished the issue out of existence and we were off again. Syntax Error radiated funk throughout the fleet and we basked in its green glory.
The fleet headed to Fort Sharris in the Waltham System to truly make its debut to Skunk and Red Squirrel's neighborhood. After battling negi g-wells as the fleet was just blocks from the fort, Slipstream intercepted and highfives were had. As the fleet landed at fort Sharris they were greeted by Waltor and Diva, who had just arrived from their own fort. Immediately upon arrival we started setting up for a major re-fueling. Ziqqurat became our food wrangler and immediately took charge of the BBQ grill. After finding a lack of lighters, he fortunately did not have to resort to using a magnifying glass to get it started. With the food started, Red Squirrel passed out sangria molecules, while folks lounged in chairs and hammocks on their lawn and blew bubbles. The fleet was also pleasantly surprised by Snows unexpected arrival.
While lounging, pilots noticed a very active bee population. Initially one was quite attracted to Wombat but it passed him and headed for Gritty. Insects have an unearthly draw towards Gritty. She made unwelcomed contact with them, was stung, and received 3 welts. Ice was administered and a medal of injury obtained. While she recovered, we played some lawn games.
Skunk set up a game involving wooden pegs with numbers that several of us attempted to knock over. In round 1 Excess showed off his technical skills by winning in very short time despite the hazards of one of the pegs migrating towards the middle of a planet. In round 2 Lordmcfuzz showed off his hand-eye coordination prowess by winning the second match. After that we invented a new game involving aiming stomp rockets at the pegs which was found to be incredibly difficult but led to some success by Red Squirrel and Excess. It reminded pilots of American Gladiators and who knows, perhaps could become a new Olympic event. Gritty was well enough to document the event with an arcane live event instant facsimile device.
Lordmcfuzz and Excess tested out Skunk's new ship Syntax Error. Excess's advanced ship experience led him to notice a bit of wobble during flight. It was determined that a navigational core adjustment was needed as well as a loose sonic disruptor casing. A small wookie team aided in the sonic disruptor casing. Grog provided a professional nav core adjustment, which was much appreciated and Syntax Error returned to its natural state of perfection.
Ziqqurat experimented with a radiation distributor which malfunctioned and sent a powerful blast directly at Acehole napping in a nearby hammock. Wombat slept peacefully near by. After Nemo was stuffed full of grapes and a spirited game of stomp rockets was played, Gritty volunteered to navigate back to the fort.
It was smooth sailing all the way back, no g-wells or mechanicals and posi moral was had by all.
-Gritty: Medal of Injury
-Ziqqurat: Medal of Patronage for taking on role as grill master
-Slipstream: Medal of Patronage for lawn games and sausages
-Cricket: Medal of Patronage for meat bag from Formaggio Kitchen
Special thanks to Slipstream for the stomp rockets, Waltor and Diva for mr. misty and unplayed bocci, and Threespeed for the grills.
