A much quicker Sydney Scroungers portrait: Miranda.
(Mostly because… well… tiny people in big jackets.)
I think it’s in 10 somewhere. I’ll get back to you on that.
*goes BSoD at the mention of session 10*
so cool XD (that was me the anon, I though you’d made a mistake ><)
Hahaha, nope. No mistakes here. Just 100% awesome Cosmere references.
Katie made a bunch of Magic: the Gathering references, but it’s fuzzy whether they were supposed to be in-universe or not.
Wait when did that happen, did I miss it? (I vaguely remember this…)
Hehehehe, that’s a Cosmere shout out actuallÿ! It means that Miranda is canonically a Mistborn fan and is using an “in-universe” swear from Mistborn Alloy of Law. For those keeping score at home, Miranda (who is played by lunarubato) has made references to Mistborn, Night Vale (one of the prisoners on the ship is “Stephen Carlsburg”) and… I think there’s one other one in there that I might be missing.
Katie Horner, played by eshonai, has been confirmed to be a fan of Stormlight Archive. (She likes kaiju because they’re like “real life chasmfiends”!) Also, arguments could be made for her being a Browncoat, seeing as she did name her smuggling ship “Tranquility.”
My characher, Sylvie Mansen (and Syl-V as well), is a big fan of Portal, and sometimes just to freak her out, Vee will use the Shatterdome’s AI voice modulator and say GLaDOS-y things because they sound so similar…
There’s probably more shout outs in there. This group is too clever for me to keep up with all their tricks!
With a hold full of rather hostile prisoners, a very pissed off crime lord in the form of Karen Wulagu, an away team waving away a smoke cloud and hoping they didn’t just kill their target, and well, Greg; the Scroungers are in it deep. It remains to be seen if they can get themselves out of this one.
Tensions run high aboard the increasingly inaccurately named Tranquility as the Wulagu Syndicate prisoner turned out to be an actual human being. Who would have guessed?
Miranda has finally asked the question everyone was thinking: Rescue Samil from the fray of battle now, or hope he’ll be okay until the Wulagu ship comes in to shore, and try to rescue him then… and also face a harder salvage for the lost Jaeger tech?
The Tranquility is proving a bit of an ironic name, as personalities begin to clash. The Sydney Scroungers have just finished retrieving dangerous information from a Wulagu Syndicate ship. Now, some ways behind them, a battle between the PPDC and the Wulagu Syndicate rages on, firelight reflecting across the waters of New South Wales. The battle seems to be shifting somewhat in the PPDC’s favor, but things are still far from settled.
However, the crew of the Tranquility has more pressing matters, namely the wounded prisoner that they dragged off of the Wulagu ship who has just woken up down in the hold.
Within a few key clicks, Sylvie’s got access to the whole database. She downloads all the data she can find, and cuts the communication with the other ships in their fleet. Then she sees the on-ship communication program. With a few more clicks, she’s pulled up access to the crew’s earpieces. And decided to send them a message: the highest-pitched tone she can get as loud as the volume will go.
All across the ship, the Wulagu goons begin screaming and clutching at their ears. A few quick or clever ones manage to rip their earpieces out in time, but even they are woozy, disoriented, and deafened.
"You’re welcome," Sylvie says quietly to no one in particular, a small smile on her lips.
