Big Trouble in Little Loading Dock Pt. 1

Post by Seth » Fri Mar 15, 2024 3:44 am

Description: Blake was trying to give a lesson about being a company man when he claims to have a contract on his Ex-Girlfriend's ride. Madness ensues in this thrilling saga....He also is no Iceman taking on MiGs

The Miltech X9A Gladius's sensors respond to Blake's eye movements and lock onto Devel SixSixSix.
(Outside: The Miltech X9A Gladius emits a low, electronic hum as its radars focus on Devel
SixSixSix.)

[TWS] Target acquired.
(Outside: Miltech X9A Gladius fires a burst from its 90mm LBX Autocannon that falls far short of
the Devel SixSixSix.)
Miltech X9A Gladius fires a wild stuttering burst from its 90mm LBX Autocannon that misses
the Devel SixSixSix.

The Devel Motors 2053 model, the Devel SixSixSix, is a sleek, three-axel behemoth. This SUV has
dark windows, a massive, low-set grill meant for ramming through debris, and a sloping
hood/windshield combo that presents a torpedo-like profile, outlined with slender amber LED
glow lighting along the door trim and side-windows. Four headlights, two protected behind the
grill and two perched on the side mirrors, light the road, giving excellent visibility in all
weathers. Huge, heavy-treaded tires, accented with amber LEDs on the lugs, chew through the
dirt and growl across the pavement, providing six-wheel all terrain drive, with two powerful
rear axels driving the vehicle forward and guided by a single, independent-suspension front
axel. Blood-red LED brakes flash across the back, outlining the rear hatch door. Painted all in
black, with amber underglow lighting, the SixSixSix carries menace wherever she goes. A custom
plate, framed in amber LEDs, exclaims 'BITE ME'.
The registration number ******** is neatly stencilled on the flanks and rear.
A .50 cal machinegun is mounted to the Devel SixSixSix. A .50 cal machinegun is mounted to the

(Outside: A .50 cal machinegun unfolds and deploys from the Miltech X9A Gladius.)

There is a swift rumble and a thump as the .50 cal machinegun deploys.

far short of the Devel SixSixSix.)

The cockpit features a fairly standard seating for flight crew members, with the gunner sitting
forward and below of the side-by-side pilot and co-pilot, allowing for excellent visibility for
all crew members. The displays are extremely modern, featuring both holographic readouts,
kinematic and voice activated control systems in addition to the more traditional stick and
throttle quadrants. Each seat features a clip on heads up display, allowing the weapons to
track where the crew member is looking, ensuring a true look-down, shoot-down capability. There
is a small locking hatch leading aft to the passenger compartment, with a small aft facing
workstation for a payload operator directly left of the hatch. Green-phosphor pixels glow on

***Fast Forward through travel and after tuning in for next time after several weeks...****

On to part two of this two part episode...Blake shows up to apologize at The Little Loading Dock but Big Trouble quickly ensues.


Haven says, "So what happened?"
Lakeisha walks up to you and give you a light slap across the face, "Jerk."
Lakeisha [to Haven]: Blake here decided to have fun.

You look at your chronometer.
Your chronometer reads: "Thu Mar 14 11:04pm 2054"
Lakeisha grumbles at you, "Right. I wont even bother."

You say, "Amon is here that is why you're so bold as to touch me. As when you were bold to kill
my GF when I said not to."
qd lake with falchion
Your fingers blur as you unfasten the back scabbard.
In one swift motion, you draw your falchion and attack Lakeisha with it.
You size up your opponent with one glance and go for the kill.
Blake wades toward Lakeisha, swinging his falchion in broad, heavy strokes.
Blake hacks ferociously at Lakeisha with his falchion, the heavy blade crashing down again
and again, tearing through the chrome of Lakeisha's cyber right upper arm in a cloud of bio
fluid and gore.
Lakeisha moves her cyber left foot out of the path of Blake's deadly falchion.
Lakeisha comes up with this aggro jumping elbow-smash move, but Blake turns aside easily
and escapes. Whoa.

You begin following Lakeisha. (Lakeisha doesn't trust you to follow, and will try to evade).
Haven eyes her surroundings cautiously.
Haven says, "Stop!"
ht lake
She seems to have some nasty cuts and bruises.
Haven says, "Blake stop!"
Lakeisha tries to escape, but you manage to prevent her!
Lakeisha sighs.
With nearly inhuman speed, Lakeisha ducks beneath the slashing blade of Blake's falchion.

You say, "Nah...I tried."
Lakeisha [to Blake]: It was a light slap. God your emotional.
Haven unlocks the doors to Zil Stretch Limousine.
Lakeisha unzips her a knife sheath.
Haven climbs into Zil Stretch Limousine.
The Zil Stretch Limousine's doors lock from the inside.
Lakeisha reaches into her a knife sheath and pulls out a shrieker.
Lakeisha leaps out of the way as Blake's falchion slashes through the air where she was standing.

Xiaoyu slips into a graceful stance, holding one of her pair of fighting fans in each hand as
she advances on Blake.
Xiaoyu closes her fans with a flick of her wrist, using them to give weight to her fists as
she attacks Blake, punching and kicking in fluid movements that brook no argument. Blake
twists his body away, barely dodging the tornado of pain that Xiaoyu continues to attack him
with. Even Xiaoyu's decision to unfold the fans at an opportune moment fails her, as Blake
leaps away from the stinging blades and off to safety.

Xiaoyu moves like a puma, her pair of fighting fans fully extended and held at the ready.
Stepping forward with exquisite grace, Xiaoyu begins a sublimely perfect form of destruction,
her every movement ready to rip flesh from limb, to destroy anything that it may come in
contact with. Blake responds with rapid dodges, leaping and rolling in every direction to
escape Xiaoyu's whirling blades. Xiaoyu completes her onslaught without managing to land a
single blow, yet remains prepared for the next attempt.

You manage to slip away from Lakeisha!
Xiaoyu steps to one side, keeping her arms in a position appropriate for handling anything,
attack or defense. Without warning, Xiaoyu suddenly brings one of her pair of fighting fans to
attack Blake from above while using the other to assault from below. Responding with the raw,
unbridled speed of pure reflex, Blake leaps backwards into a defensive roll, keeping his body
out of harm's way.

***** Bit of Travel****
Midtown Drive (in New Carthage)
Bike couriers joust with hovertraffic and groundcars on this crowded street. Garish neon light
flashes and pools on chrome facades. Tattoo parlors, mod shops, skin studios: Midtown caters to
any whim. The crowds surge past streetside organ display tanks in a bustling press of
engineered flesh. Spotlights and strobes transfix their derm-dilated eyes under a dark neon
night.
You can cross north, the street runs east, and an intersection lies west. A small store
lies to the south, a thin trickle of dermheads windowshopping.
To the north, you see a group of people. Some vehicles are to the north. You see a vehicle to
the northeast.
It is now spring.
A thick, polluted fog covers everything. A Dornier Civilian is cruising overhead.
A Bell-Dynamics Yellowjacket is sitting on its landing gear nearby.
You attempt to blend into your surroundings.

You start sneaking away...
You dodge your way across the street, barely avoiding passing hovercraft and rogue cyclists.

[-] *Lakeisha* [English]: I dont' know what your deal is? I playfully slapped you
after you blew up my ride over a, contract.

Xiaoyu
Gliding gracefully through the environment, is a short, curvy Chinese woman. Although she could
seem meek, her body language might suggest a degree of self confidence. Her movements are
careful and considered, as is the way she talks.She seems quite alert and perky.
Xiaoyu has a small head with delicate, and graceful facial features. Her straight black hair has
been pulled up into long pigtails tied with simple crimson bows. Large, warm, russet brown eyes
might be her prettiest facial feature. For makeup, she wears a red and gold eyeshadow. The gold
covers her eyelids, fading into a warm red forming wing tips at the corner of her eyes. Both
tones match her warm skin tone nicely. Her cheeks are highlighted with a warm, but subtle red
blusher. A cute nose precedes a pair of full lips, coated in a warm red lip gloss with flecks
of gold. She is wearing a long sunset golden satin Tang-styled tailcoat. Raised around the base
of her throat is a firm mandarin-styled collar, accentuating her jawline perfectly. The long
belled sleeves extend just short of her wrists, their hems finished in blackened feathers. Each
feather is painted with the vane in a shimmery gold, while the tips display a vibrant bright
red. The feathers themselves cascade just over the middle of her hands. As the tailcoat
descends down the front of her shapely chest, it helps to define her feminine curves of her
bustline with three wooden toggle closures. The last toggle is placed just above her sternum,
allowing it to part and reveal the smooth athletic shape of her stomach and the curves of her
hips. While the cut of her tailcoat splits further open, it allows for the lower half to flare
outwards and dance around with each step she takes. From the collar, to the toggles and further
down in accenting stripes, the material exhibits an iridescent red hue that plays with the
light and transitions to a honey gold, all finely outlined in black to enhance its color. This
trail continues all the way down to near the bottom hem, where it takes on a unique and
mesmerizing broad smoke-swirling pattern overlaid on black, wrapping around the entire bottom
before meeting similarly colored long feathers that delicately tickle along the backs of her
calves. She has a freaking -ADORABLE- satin-and-leather chibi vampire corgi bag slung over her
left shoulder. It's cute plastic eyes wink at you holographically with her every movement, and
the cute little satin cape flutters in any breeze. A pair of fingerless leather gloves enfold
her hands, pieces of contoured steel plate protecting the back of Xiaoyu's fingers. Xiaoyu's
lower legs and feet are covered in a pair of black leather boots, steel bands glimmering near
the knee
She is in excellent health.
Xiaoyu is wielding a pair of fighting fans.
Ace says, "Blake."
Elsa Richter says, "Blake went on a rampage, attacking her car tonight."
Lakeisha [to Ace]: I'm very angry with you.
Xiaoyu looks at Lakeisha. (Something in an unintelligable language.)
Xiaoyu looks at Lakeisha. "Are you alright?"
Lakeisha nods to Elsa Richter.
Elsa Richter says, "She was in a meeting with me, and the scheisse acted foolishly."
Lakeisha [to Xiaoyu]: For now.
-w lakeisha Nothing playful about it.

Ace says, "Look, I jus' got told t'show up. I ain' trying to get involved in nothin'."
[-] *Lakeisha* [English]: What? Never had a girl slap you?
Elsa Richter [to Lakeisha]: Ace will not be trouble.
Elsa Richter [to Ace]: Isn't that right?
[-] *Lakeisha* [English]: I guess those rumors about you beating your ex was right after all.
Lakeisha walks into Loading Dock.

A Ford Ranger drives in from the northwest.
Loading Dock
A large loading bay, completely empty and unused. The walls are black, and covered with soot.
Broken lightbulbs stare down at you from what was formerly rows of light fixtures in the
ceiling. A concrete lip runs around three sides of the area, the fourth being the entrance.
Stacks of packing crates are turned on their side, as if blown away from the central area by an
explosion. A cluster of heavy lifting machines are buried under a pile of boxes and other
wreckage. A small red glow emanates from one of the back corners of the dock. A Devel
SixSixSix is parked here. A ArcLight EXL-S is parked here.
You see a Loading Bay Garages Directory and an empty 10mm magazine here.
Lakeisha is one bad bunny.
You can go north (n, Bay1, bayone), northeast (ne, Bay2, baytwo), and south (s, out).
Elsa Richter arrives.
Lakeisha chuckles at you.
Elsa Richter says, "Calm down."
Elsa Richter [to Blake]: You are having a bad night. -Sleep it off-.
Lakeisha [to Blake]: Really man, want to hug it out? I have shit against you.
You say, "You said a nasty com too."

Elsa Richter says, "So?"
You say, "You always do."
Lakeisha says, "You attacked me?!"
Blake [to Lakeisha]: You always talk shit.
Elsa Richter says, "Words are not worth murder... I learned that lesson the hard way."
Lakeisha [to Blake]: I don't talk shit honey.
Blake [to Lakeisha]: Yeah you do.

Elsa Richter [to Blake]: Are you not a protector of the weak? A friend to the immigrants?
Lakeisha [to Blake]: I suggested that those rumors might be true.
Xiaoyu arrives.
Your body begins to slow down. You can feel your power rush coming to an end.
[-SERVER MESSAGE-] A checkpoint has begun. Expect minor lag for a while.
Lakeisha [to Blake]: Because I playfully slapped you for blowing up my car.
Elsa Richter [to Blake]: If the bunny has been bad, she may deserve a spanking. Not death. Not
having her car destroyed.
[-SERVER MESSAGE-] Checkpoint finished, wrote 203.528MB in 9 seconds (22.614MB/sec.) The DB grew by 0.038MB.
Lakeisha [to Blake]: You need to chill out.
Blake [to Lakeisha]: You killed my girlfriend.
Lakeisha [to Blake]: What are you talking about?
Blake [to Lakeisha]: When I said don't do that or I'll come for you.
Lakeisha [to Blake]: I've never killed anyone of noteworthy.
Blake [to Lakeisha]: You lied about when BotF attacked.
Lakeisha [to Blake]: I did no such thing.

Elsa Richter frowns faintly, tapping her foot.
You say, "Right, you won single handedly. I was a burden."

You can go north (n, Bay1, bayone), northeast (ne, Bay2, baytwo), and south (s, out).
