This is kind of an RP break - anyone can post if they want. If not, I'll jump to your arrival at Damaris a few weeks from now. (Only two weeks by ship's clock.) There are no major (read game-worth) events before then.

Is this colony inside the imperium? or is it in the...expanse?

Well, that went poorly. I'm back in business, at least. Sorry about vanishing, folks.

So, lemme just catch up with the thread...

EDIT: OKAY! So I'll post tomorrow, cause I managed to sort everything out super late today. See you then!

No worries.

The Reconing will move in to dock with the Bulwark, a large space station above Damaris. There it can release what limited cargo you were carrying, refresh supplies and similar background activities. What I need from the players (particularly the RT) is if you are going to disembark on the Bulwark or depart directly for Damaris City during the approch. (You would have no difficulty getting authorization to do so.)

What would be typical in this setting? I would prefer to move quickly towards securing the safe, but if this would be a major red flag or social breach then Comenzar would follow protocols to the extent necessary. Even if he was required on the station however, he would like a team sent down to begin surveillance at the least.

Both options are perfectly socially acceptable for a Rogue Trader - you you certainly could be present for the docking and subsequent transactions, your presence is not retired for them to go correctly or smoothly. However, anyone who is paying attention to you (and people in the expanse do pay attention to what Rogue Traders do) will read different things from the different options. Heading down before the docking would suggest that cargo and supplies are incidental and that your real purpose is with someone or something on the planet. So really, your choices are based on how much you want or care about telegraphing your intentions. (There may also be social/personality reads people take away from either action)

Short version - either is fine.

Enough time has already elapsed that Comenzar would want to head directly to the planet to make the acquisition. So unless the captain or his advisers objected that would be his instructions.

hrmm.. now I'm mostly wondering how to fit a omnissian axe into that limo. and yes.. I suppose we are going down in full gear? at least if someone doesn't say otherwise my character is.

I don't see why my body guards wouldn't wear full gear while escorting me outside of the Imperium.

I suppose a bank might take issue. though they'll probably quieten down when they learn it's a rogue trader.

They'll react according to visibility really. They have a reason to maintain security, after all other Rogue Traders keep items/wealth there - like the dynasty whose box you are headed to recover. There's a reason the guy escorting a VIP to a club isn't in riot armor.

That's a valid point. Perhaps your character, Carsh, should be waiting just outside the bank keeping an eye out slash ready to go in.

Sorry about dropping of the planet. Real-life happened, with school starting up and work being ... well, work.

If nobody minds the sudden insertion, we can just assume Jake is with the Captain, driving/flying whatever vehicles he travels in. As a young man in a new and daunting position, it is only natural he would keep his head low and observe until he learns the ropes, so his lack of fanfare-laden introduction can be easily explained away :)

Sounds cool? If so, Jake waits in the limo as ordered, ready for a quick getaway when the **** inevitably hits the fan

Yeah, easy enough to say he was flying then driving. There's a reason why I'm usually in distinct about who's present.

perhaps we could use a narration for what happens as we enter the bank

I think that's a good call. I'll get something up tomorrow, if not today.

On a related note, Shado has informed me he is withdrawing from the game. We can assume at this point your ShipMaster has chosen to stay aboard the Usry's Reckoning.

I must apologize for my unannounced absence over the last week. Several major developments in my professional life have kept me from getting online. Not the least of which was the termination of my immediate supervisor.

in the interest of moving the game along. Comenzar will inform the individual in charge of the security accounts that they are here to access the box of the other dynasty and Comenzar will present the forms authorizing the repossession to take place.

Wow, seems like a hell of a time for working - I've been non-responsive for not dissimilar reasons! I hope everything's working out for you at least during this time. Potato's Eustace would be the only one with you at the moment, and he hasn't said anything of late, so I'm also going to push a bit faster through this section then I might otherwise.

yeah I hope our circumstances haven't caused everyone to leave. Work for me is getting...... more hectic to be honest.
