[21:53] Murska: Dan is pushed into the room?
[21:54] Happy: Yes, that's what I said…
[21:55] Murska: Yes.
[21:56] Shadowcaller: (You left one of the chats we used >.>)
[21:56] Murska: (You told me to close two)
[21:56] Happy: don't close the active ones
[21:56] Shadowcaller: (Yeah, but not that one:P)
[21:56] Happy: close the inactive ones
[21:56] Murska: (But none of them are active)
[21:56] Happy: this one is
[21:57] Happy: The cop continues in after pushing Dan, and backhands him across the face.
[21:57] Shadowcaller: (Bith-slap!)
[21:57] Shadowcaller: *bitch
[21:57] Murska: He doesn't say or do anything.
[22:01] Shadowcaller: (Right… my cop…) A second cop black-haired cop, slightly shorter then the first enters the room and sits down on one of the chairs.
[22:04] Happy: Cop 1 follows up with another punch to the face.
[22:05] Shadowcaller: Cop 2 dosen't do much except watching cop 1 slap Dan.
[22:05] Murska: Dan doesn't do much except be slapped.
[22:09] Shadowcaller: (Coming this summer: Man is getting slapped to the face.))
[22:10] Happy: Then he gets roughed up a bit more. Seems Cop 1 likes beating up people who don't fight back. :P
[22:11] Shadowcaller: "And thats enough… sit down Dan."
[22:11] Murska: He sits.
[22:12] Happy: "Who hired you to get rid of Mayes?"
[22:14] Murska: 'Nobody has and apparently nobody needs to since someone else already got rid of him.'
[22:18] Shadowcaller: The first cop sigh "We didn't expect you do confess directly, but another few hours here…"
[22:18] Murska: 'Look, it's pretty obvious what's going on here but you shouldn't drag me into this. You don't know who I am.'
[22:19] Happy: "So why don't you tell us?"
[22:21] Murska: 'I don't care about the leadership change in that organization but you don't want to attempt to use me as a scapegoat. It /will/ bring the military here and there will be trouble for you.'
[22:22] Happy: "Big words." *grin*
[22:24] Shadowcaller: "We hear similar stories everyday from scum right off the streets."
[22:25] Murska: 'You happen to be talking to Captain Daniel Therson from the Eden Army, IntOps MR4 branch.'
[22:28] Shadowcaller: "Eden army? Well, we have a way we both can avoid trouble."
[22:29] Shadowcaller: Cop 2 looks at cop 1.
[22:30] Happy: "Pfft. He's lying."
[22:34] Murska: 'About something that easily verifiable?' He smirks.
[22:38] Shadowcaller: (Not sure if I should say something here >.>9
[22:39] Happy: *shrugs* "So what if you are? Wouldn't surprise me if the Impies wanted Mayes dead."
[22:40] Murska: 'So if I am I can't be prosecuted here.'
[22:43] Shadowcaller: "So you rather sit here and wait to be shipped off to some other system? Look, we want to belive you, this is very troublesome for us all. But we can't just let you go…"
[22:45] Murska: 'So I'll contact my superiors and wait here until they come and fetch me. I'll be sure to mention the great help you people here have been to me.' He wipes some blood off his face.
[22:46] Happy: "You'll contact your superiors when we decide to let you."
[22:47] Murska: 'You have no right to disallow that. And if you do, my superiors will come here eventually on their own accord… this time with a bunch of big men with guns.'
[22:50] Happy: "Pfft… people disappear on Phrygian all the time. They'll poke around a bit, and figure you musta done something to piss off one of the crime lords."
[22:50] Murska: (I played two turns of that Civ save to take a look around and I think that 'honorable' ruleset has screwed us all)
[22:51] Happy: haha
[22:52] Murska: 'And then they get here and get rid of said crime lords. The army doesn't allow it's people to 'disappear' for any causes.'
[22:55] Murska: (Seriously, the game might just be 'who can survive the longest' now)
[22:56] Happy: "Yeah… somehow I doubt that. One mid-level officer is hardly going to call for an invasion."
[22:56] Murska: 'Ever heard of Incident 32?'
[22:58] Murska: 'A single scout frigate 'disappeared' in a remote system. The army sent in an entire battle group to take control of the whole area, conquered three planets and fought off a group of the Church vessels to find out what happened. It turned out that there were twelve prisoners so they extended the attack into the neighbouring system which was unofficial Church territory and rescued them.'
[22:58] Murska: 'The results were twelve thousand killed or wounded.'
[23:00] Shadowcaller: "Look, both you and I know there would be trouble for both of us. It's just easier if we came to an agreement here."
[23:01] Murska: He separates his arms. 'Well, I'm listening.'
[23:06] Happy: "Bah. It's not worth it. Let his body turn up on the West Side."
[23:07] Shadowcaller: "That of course depends what he can offer us…"
[23:09] Murska: He crosses his arms again, leaning back on the chair and activating his cybernetics to enhance his sight and better process people's expressions.
[23:10] Murska: (See what I mean, Happy?)
[23:10] Happy: (heh… restart, or play it out?)
[23:10] Murska: (play it out!)
[23:10] Murska: (it's gonna be hilarious)
[23:10] Shadowcaller: (hehe…)
[23:11] Murska: (then again, the team who first gets DoWd by Shaka wins)
[23:17] Murska: .
[23:18] Happy: "Nah, he's got nothing."
[23:18] Murska: He pings the room for electronics and surveillance equipment.
[23:19] Happy: Recording equipment. Cybernetic detection equipment, but a lower tech level than his own parts.
[23:19] Shadowcaller: "Dan, we can let you leave this system right now, but need something in return."
[23:19] Murska: 'Such as?'
[23:20] Shadowcaller: "You tell me, if your so important as you claim you are, I'm sure you can come with something."
[23:21] Murska: 'So now you're asking me for bribes?'
[23:22] Shadowcaller: "I'm just saying we are open for suggestions." The cop leans back in his chair with his arms crossed behind his head.
[23:22] Murska: 'What's your year's pay?'
[23:24] Happy: "35k"
[23:25] Murska: 'Well then, that's nice. Should buy you a nice gravesite on this planet. Why are you even talking to me about something like that in this room?'
[23:29] Happy: "Because it's our room."
[23:30] Murska: 'Well, either you state clearly what you want me to offer you or we talk somewhere without recording devices.'
[23:33] Shadowcaller: "Those reccords means nothing, they dissapear as easily as people around here."
[23:33] Murska: He leans back and doesn't say anything more.
[23:34] Shadowcaller: Cop 2 looks at cop 1.
[23:34] Happy: Cop 1 makes a throat cutting gesture at the mirror. The recording devices go off.
[23:35] Murska: But he isn't supposed to know taht.
[23:35] Murska: that*
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (We know.)
[23:36] Shadowcaller: (Or I know:P)
[23:37] Happy: (We know)
[23:38] Shadowcaller: "There, we are offically off the reccord."
[23:39] Murska: He twists his fingers and focuses his eyes to read their expressions. He should be able to detect lies unless they're specially trained against it and stuff like nervousness, anger and such.
[23:40] Murska: 'All right, negotiations table then. Since reaching no conclusion is… fatally harmful to both sides, let's hear from you first.'
[23:41] Happy: "We've said our part."
[23:43] Murska: 'You need a scapegoat, I'd assume. There's nothing you could possibly accuse us of otherwise. But my conditions have to include all three of us being let go for reasons far above your security clearance.'
[23:45] Shadowcaller: "Why the others exactly? What is their part in this?"
[23:46] Murska: 'Didn't you hear me? Regardless, the obvious blame goes on the actual murderer, there are so many eyewitnesses and security records on that that I doubt you've managed to keep that under wraps. If you need to actually catch someone, however, it's a different story.'
[23:47] Happy: "The cyborg? He didn't have a gun."
[23:47] Murska: 'Oh, he's been caught then?'
[23:47] Murska: 'Well, neither did any of us.'
[23:47] Murska: 'The security guard, however, did.'
[23:48] Happy: "The security guard's gun wasn't the murder weapon."
[23:48] Murska: 'So what has the cyborg having or not having a gun got to do with anything then?'
[23:48] Murska: 'What about the security camera feed on the stairs?'
[23:52] Happy: "Cyborg was running up the steps. Mayes backs away from the 'tumah', not wanting to be touched. He falls. Couple of broken bones, but nothing fatal. Then the smoke obscures everything. A little while later, you go down, find him still alive and put three bullets in his gut, then carry his body up."
[23:52] Murska: 'Put three bullets in his gut? With my bare hands? Besides, didn't you talk something about this being a planned murder.'
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "Theories change."
[23:55] Murska: 'So what's it now? I randomly decide to kill someone, shoot him without a weapon when the real murder weapon is actually impossible for me to use in the situation undetected and then carry the body up for everyone to see?'
[23:56] Happy: "It's whatever we tell the jury, of course." *big toothy smile*
[23:56] Murska: 'Why are we talking about this anyway? I asked you a question.'
[23:58] Happy: Cop 1 backhands Dan across the face again. "We ask the questions around here."
[23:59] Murska: He catches his arm. 'Stop being so uncooperative.'
[00:02] Shadowcaller: "Exhuse him, he's in a bad mood today."
[00:02] Happy: Cop 1 pulls his arm free. "He doesn't give us orders."
[00:03] Happy: brb food
[00:06] Shadowcaller: (So… by the way. Is Derek flirting with Luna?:P *you do not need to answer this question*)
[00:07] Murska: (not really)
[00:07] Murska: (that is, he is flirting but not actually with any goals)
[00:08] Shadowcaller: (Well, I would still call that flirting. He sure makes her uncomfortable at least^^)
[00:12] Happy: "And don't make 'excuses' for me, Cotter."
[00:14] Shadowcaller: "Just trying to make this work, but he's making it hard."
[00:22] Murska: '…so?'
[00:22] Happy: "Eh, I got nothing more to say."
[00:23] Happy: "Let him stew for a few days, maybe he'll behave a bit more civilly."
[00:23] Murska: Dan laughs.
[00:24] Happy: Two more cops enter the room to cuff Dan.
[00:25] Murska: He stretches, stands and gives them his wrists.
[00:25] Happy: They cuff him behind his back.
[00:25] Shadowcaller: Copper sigh "I had hoped this wouldn't happend."
[00:25] Murska: 'You shouldn't be idiots then.'
[00:26] Happy: *Cotter
[00:26] Shadowcaller: (Right.)
[00:28] Happy: And Cop 1 drags him off to a cell.
[00:29] Shadowcaller: (Cop 2 did had something to say >.>)
[00:30] Happy: (oh, well go ahead)
[00:32] Shadowcaller: "It would be much easier to just let you go Dan, to let you all go. But still, we need something in return."
[00:32] Murska: 'The police shouldn't usually need anything in return of letting innocents go free.'
[00:38] Happy: "I very much doubt you're 'innocent'."
[00:38] Murska: 'Innocent until proven otherwise and it's been proven impossible for me to have committed the crime in question.'
[00:39] Happy: "Whatever." He drags Dan off to a cell.
[00:40] Murska: On the way Dan looks around for electronics and tries to get a feel of the layout of the place.
[00:42] Happy: General security stuff, still all a tech level behind him.
[00:43] Murska: How many people?
[00:43] Happy: Not many.
[00:44] Murska: What's the cell like?
[00:46] Happy: A small room. Shelf style bed, toilet, and sink. No windows except for a small one set into the door, which is covered from the outside.
[00:47] Murska: He tries to find the camera in the room.
[00:48] Happy: He does so
[00:48] Murska: Finds nothing?
[00:49] Happy: Find the camer
[00:49] Murska: Dead angles?
[00:50] Happy: ?
[00:50] Shadowcaller: Is there angels where the camera dosen't see
[00:50] Murska: heh
[00:51] Murska: If you don't observe angels in a forest, does it make a sound?
[00:51] Happy: How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
[00:51] Shadowcaller: *angkes
[00:51] Shadowcaller: *angles
[00:51] Happy: Yes, it's not efficient enough to get every possible angle.
[00:53] Murska: Then he moves around a bit and sits down in a position so he is mostly visible. Then he tries to get a little sleep.
[00:53] Happy: sleeping while sittign?
[00:53] Happy: Oh, and they took his cuffs off once he was in the cell
[00:54] Happy: And your broken nose hurts.
[00:54] Murska: yeah
[00:54] Murska: His head not visible to the camera if possible.
[00:55] Happy: He manages that
[00:57] Happy: And sleeps, if he can sleep with a broken nose.
[01:07] Shadowcaller: ..
[01:09] Murska: Anything more happen today?
[01:10] Happy: Nope. Time for Happy to go to bed.
[01:10] Murska: All right. Dan waits until midnight and opens his eyes.
[01:10] Murska: sleep well *hugs*
[01:12] Murska: Actually he'd wait until 2am
[01:12] Murska: but whatever :P
[01:12] Happy: okay
[01:13] Murska: Have they lost their possessions?
[01:15] Happy: How well hidden was his knife?
[01:16] Murska: There was a small guitar pick in a thin chain in his inner pocket. I doubt they'd notice that it can be lengthened into a knife.
[01:17] Happy: They did not
[01:17] Happy: He wasn't even properly searched. Just patted down.
[01:17] Murska: He pulls out a bazooka out of his pocket :P
[01:19] Happy: :P
[01:19] Happy: Pocket of Holding?
[01:19] Shadowcaller: Now thats overkill
[01:20] Murska: 'Now where's my concealed weapon… wait a sec.' *starts taking an arsenal out of the pocket*
[01:20] Happy: Dan realizes he's in a sci-fi universe and therefore does not have a pocket of holding. Therefore he does not have a bazooka in his pocket and is apparently just happy to see no one.
[01:20] Murska: *hanguns, automatics, rocket launchers, a tank…*
[01:20] Murska: Ah, there is it. *pulls out a tiny knife*
[01:21] Happy: He has his guitar pick knife.
[01:21] Shadowcaller: Isn't the room so filled with stuff now that he can't leave anyway:P
[01:22] Murska: Anyway, in the real universe he walks to the camera and touches it from a dead angle, killing the feed.
[01:22] Shadowcaller: (But Dan didn't count that one of the guards was a chat person on the future gitp, and was staying up to 5 AM every night!)
[01:22] Happy: Touches the place in the wall where it's embedded.
[01:23] Happy: But yeah, that works.
[01:23] Murska: Then he moves to be ready for anyone opening the door and not visible from the gap
[01:23] Shadowcaller: (Comic strip 20134.)
[01:24] Happy: ?
[01:24] Shadowcaller: (The future gitp.)
[01:24] Shadowcaller: (During this time.)
[01:26] Happy: and bedtime
[01:29] Shadowcaller: Hmm… Shrimp and Elly online… <.<
[01:29] Shadowcaller: >.>

[22:03] Happy: In another room, Kara is roughly pushed in. "Out of the suit. Now."
[22:05] Shadowcaller: "What? I can't get out of this, I have a weakened immune system. I suffera high risk of infection without it."
[22:05] Shadowcaller: *suffer
[22:06] Happy: The cop just crosses her arms and glares at her.
[22:09] Shadowcaller: "I'm not from around here okay? It's a simple environmental suit, I don't see why I should take if off."
[22:13] Shadowcaller: "This is a hostile envoirment to me."
[22:13] Shadowcaller: *environment
[22:13] Happy: "Take it off, or we'll do it for you."
[22:13] Shadowcaller: "Why? I can die here without it."
[22:15] Happy: She doesn't say anything else and steps up to Kara, with the obvious intention of beginning to remove her suit.
[22:16] Shadowcaller: She backs away showing her palms in a stop sign "Wait… not here."
[22:18] Happy: "Okay. I can be reasonable. Where?"
[22:20] Shadowcaller: "Eh, somewhere clean?"
[22:22] Shadowcaller: "Don't you have a cold room or something like that? More privat?"
[22:22] Happy: (a cold room?)
[22:22] Shadowcaller: (SHe means a morgue.)
[22:22] Happy: (ah)
[22:23] Happy: She is dragged off to the morgue then, where Branson and the four other bodies are awaiting autopsy
[22:26] Shadowcaller: Kara sigh "Just stay outside until I'm done, okay?"
[22:27] Happy: "I can't do that." she says.
[22:27] Happy: "Regulations. I'm already bending them by bringing you here."
[22:29] Shadowcaller: "Fine, but it takes some time to remove… so you have to wait."
[22:31] Shadowcaller: (Is there something to stand behind in the morgue?)
[22:32] Happy: (only dead bodies)
[22:33] Shadowcaller: "I guess you can't just question me here?"
[22:43] Shadowcaller: …
[22:44] Happy: "No. But I'll get you a mask at least."
[22:45] Shadowcaller: She nods "Thanks officer."
[22:45] Shadowcaller: Kara walks away a bit and then starts to remove her suit.
[22:47] Shadowcaller: She dose so and returns to the officer, she looks *very* uncomfortable. "Can I have a mask now?"
[22:49] Happy: The officer gets a mask out of one of the supply cupboards which covers her nose and mouth and filters the incoming air. "Medical grade 3. You should be safe."
[22:51] Shadowcaller: http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg254/Seweron/FREEBIE__Tad_by_ChibiTotoro222.png
[22:51] Shadowcaller: "RIght… so lead along."
[22:52] Happy: "Hmph. You're still a suspect here. Don't forget it."
[22:53] Shadowcaller: "I won't try anything officer… I just want to get back in my suit as fast as possible."
[22:53] Happy: She leads Kara back to the questioning room. "Now, you can start by telling us what you know about your friends."
[22:54] Shadowcaller: (And yes, thats Kara on the image.) "I don't know very much about them, I just met them a few days ago."
[22:58] Shadowcaller: "Dan is just… Dan, he dosen't tell much about himself."
[22:59] Shadowcaller: "Lucia is an artist, as you already know."
[22:59] Shadowcaller: Kara shrugs
[23:06] Shadowcaller: …
[23:07] Happy: "Do you normally travel with people you've just met?"
[23:08] Shadowcaller: "This is the first time I travel and they were stuck on a ship so I decided to give them a lift."
[23:09] Shadowcaller: "They are intresting people and I'm just traveling around anyway… it's nice with connections."
[23:10] Happy: "Well, there's something awfully suspicious about the singer. She must have come into a lot of money somewhere, because she didn't earn enough on this show to cover her costs, by a long shot."
[23:10] Shadowcaller: "Lucia is a nice person, I'm sure she can explain that."
[23:11] Shadowcaller: "I don't know anything about her economical situation."
[23:14] Shadowcaller: Kara is about to remain quite clam, despite that she is feeling quite naked by now.
[23:14] Shadowcaller: *-quite
[23:14] Happy: "And Dan? Look, I'm willing to believe that you were just caught up in something they were involved in."
[23:16] Shadowcaller: "Dan? He dosesn't tell me anything. Look, I'm just a simple trader from Umbra, I just drive those two around right now for my own enjoyment."
[23:17] Happy: "And look where it got you. Listen, you don't owe them anything."
[23:17] Shadowcaller: "I can't tell you anything I don't know anything about? What do you want to know exactly?"
[23:19] Shadowcaller: *how can I
[23:20] Happy: "How the two are related. Who they contacted on this planet. That sort of thing."
[23:21] Shadowcaller: "I think they were in the same ship together, but they hardly knew each other from there."
[23:23] Shadowcaller: "It's the first time I'm even here, so I don't really know anything about their connections to the planet beside that Lucia had a show here."
[23:24] Happy: She hands Kara a sheet of paper and a pen. "How about you write out everything you remember of their movements and activities from the time you arrived in system?"
[23:25] Shadowcaller: Kara shrugs again, takes the pen and starts to write.
[23:29] Shadowcaller: She just briefly writes down them coming to the hotel, Dan leaving a few times for unknown locations and activities. Lucia being at the show, Dan and her going down to buy something, Dan leaving again.Then that they are going to the show to see Lucia practice. Nothign else.
[23:29] Shadowcaller: *nothing
[23:30] Happy: Does she mention Dan's special landing site?
[23:30] Shadowcaller: Nope
[23:39] Shadowcaller: ,,,
[23:40] Happy: She looks over the list. "Lots of opportunities here for them to make arrangements, wouldn't you say?"
[23:40] Shadowcaller: Kara shrugs "I don't know."
[23:42] Shadowcaller: "I like to belive they didn't, but what do I know?"
[23:43] Happy: "The performer arranges for the accident on stage, and Dan does the dirty work. They both are getting paid off by someone on the planet, right? How else does she afford those rooms?"
[23:43] Shadowcaller: "Why are you telling me your theories? If they planned all this, they surely wouldn't be so careless that they revealed anything to me."
[23:51] Shadowcaller: …
[23:52] Happy: "They might have let something slip. Anything you tell us could be useful."
[23:53] Happy: "Do you really think Dan is so clean that he couldn't be a part of anything like this?"
[23:54] Shadowcaller: "Dan is mysterious, but I know he didn't kill anyone. I was there with him."
[23:55] Shadowcaller: "He didn't even have a gun."
[23:55] Happy: "It was your gun."
[23:56] Shadowcaller: "just check the fingerprints or whatever you do, I left that gun with the guards as you should know."
[23:57] Happy: "That's not what the records show. They show they inspected the gun but returned it to you."
[23:57] Shadowcaller: "Well, they didn't and weren't you suspecting Dan a moment ago?"
[23:58] Shadowcaller: "Why would they let me have agun anyway?"
[23:58] Shadowcaller: *a gun
[23:59] Happy: "Because Lucia batted her pretty eyelashes and Mayes and said you could be trusted."
[00:01] Shadowcaller: "Look, did any eye witness see me carrying that gun?"
[00:01] Shadowcaller: "Or security camera for that matter?"
[00:09] Shadowcaller: …
[00:20] Shadowcaller: ..
[00:23] Happy: "I don't have to tell you that."
[00:23] Shadowcaller: "So think I'm involved in this murder somehow?"
[00:25] Happy: "/I/ think you're an innocent victim in all this. But that doesn't mean much to the legal system on this world."
[00:28] Shadowcaller: "Right, well I don't know anything what dan and Lucia did when they were away. I didn't see him shoot Meyers either."
[00:29] Happy: "But you can't rule it out, right?"
[00:30] Shadowcaller: "I can neither confirm or deny it."
[00:34] Shadowcaller: "So I don't have anything you need."
[00:39] Happy: "Hmm… I'll have to talk to my superiors."
[00:39] Happy: She steps out of the room, leaving Kara alone."
[00:40] Shadowcaller: Kara shudders, she is feeling a bit cold without her suit.
[00:41] Shadowcaller: But she dosen't move from the location, she holds the mask against her mouth and breaths heavily.
[00:45] Shadowcaller: If it takes a long time for them to return, she will touch her hair a bit, trying to fix it.
[00:49] Happy: Eventually she returns, with a pair of guards. "Sorry. Not my call."
[00:50] Shadowcaller: "What now?"
[00:52] Happy: "We can't release you."
[00:53] Shadowcaller: "…when can you do that then? I haven't don anything!"
[00:53] Shadowcaller: *dome
[00:53] Shadowcaller: *done
[00:54] Happy: They try to cuff her.
[00:55] Shadowcaller: She backs away a bit "Is this really nessecary? Can I at least get my suit back?"
[00:56] Happy: "I'll see what I can do."
[00:56] Shadowcaller: "How long will I stay here?"
[01:03] Happy: The woman shrugs.
[01:04] Shadowcaller: "If I don't get my suit I at least want real clothes, I can't go around dressed like this."
[01:05] Happy: "I'll see what I can do."
[01:05] Happy: They are still trying to cuff her, but hands in front.
