Sam's Diary (Session 5)

The preacher had his second meeting, it went as expected, raised a mob, then he vaguely pointed them at whoever they were mad at., at least they won’t be mining any more and will leave town. Later we heard 3 looters were killed.

The Doc got to go to that bigshot meeting, it went OK til the riot hit the news, it sounds like things are going to be resolved, people will co-operate with him.

The Sherrif wanted the holy man for questioning, we let him talk from the ship in orbit. Damn, that was a mess, I knew what would happen, I should have stopped him.
We’re moving on now.

Sam's Diary (Session 4)

Damn, our preacher man decided to ‘do the right thing’, and let those miners know the truth about the gold rush, I dont know if he meant to form a mob or not, but he sure did form one right smart, and didn’t even aim them. He could be a dangerous man if he wanted to be.

He’s had some posters put up, and is going to do another talk tonight, hoping to get the word out to more miners, it will likely be quite the audience. I’ve helped him setup his stage, and made him some flash-bombs.

It’s too long since I had an audience, I’ve got to take the chance while I can.

Matthews been talking more to the TTB, so he knows about the vet who was compromised, and her ‘samples’ being sent off world, but he didn’t show many signs of hope that his money problems can be resolved soon, in spite of his horses not being really sick. Doc’s gonna talk to TTB and some of his friends at their ranch later tonight. I’ll have to see if I can get an invite to that too.

The Doc’s also been chatting through the cortex to some fellow medics.

Sam's Diary (Session 3)

I got Matthew to check the drugs I snagged during the barroom brawl, it was the nasty one the local bio-extract is a component of.

The gold-rush was fake, and based upon planted gold nuggets.

Sam's Diary (Session 2)

Today we arrived on Bendigo, delivering Gold prospectors. Heliotrope got caught with a few of their items, I thought there was something suspicious about her, now she’s been caught out, how clumsy.

It’s a grotty, dirty little place, but at least we got paid.

Seems there’s some odd things going on though, ran into the daughter of the town bigshot, her car had been sabotaged, the Xwidget had been exploded off, and then some papers from her car had been stolen, she was in shock too.

Her Father mentioned that there was no gold when this place was originally surveyed.

And what’s up with the sick horses, and some medical reports saying they carry a component of a fairly nasty addictive drug, and that it might be a local disease?

Sam's Diary (Session 1)

Meeting the Crew:

  • The preacher is a strange one, looking for ‘The Chosen One’ whatever that means, he’s probably harmless, could likely have a little bit of fun with him over that though,
  • Doctor Carter, I wonder if he remembers me from the battlefield, I hope he doesn’t know what happened to my engineering corp, what’s he doing out here,
  • The Captain, Sioux, and Helioptrope I just don’t get yet.

Day 0: Just about completed the essentials systems check of the ship today, I can ease off a bit now, maybe learn something about my shipmates once we land on EBM (what did the name become) and dump these smelly shoats.
Day 1: EBM wasn’t much fun, while everyone else was cleaning out the hold, I find we’ve lost our fuel, stupid Fuel line and Gauge just HAD to go simultaneously didn’t they.
Town’s wasn’t much to look at, but least the Chancellery had the parts I needed for the ship.
And that poor little girl, wandered off, fell down the canyon, she’ll be alright, but it was awful to look down and not be able to do something straight away, I’ve got to revise my standard pack. Jayne did a fine job on the end of the winch rescuing her though.
At least we got some fuel, the little girls grandfather is rich one, has his own space yacht, and his own fuel depot. We can get enough to reach the space station, then fill up and head on out to Adelaide, it seems we got a couple of bits of cargo, some cactus juice, and something in a refrigerated crate, I’ll have to check that one out.
