Page 31 Zemkosat

Clara III is counting down,"9.. 8.. 7.. 6.."

"5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1.. Liftoff"

The accelration pushes you into your seat. You continue to accelerate for several minutes.

Suddenly, you feel weightless.

Clara III says, "Escape velocity achieved. It is recommended that you go into stasis for the rest of the flight. Shall I activate stasis?"

I think we should listen to Clara and go into stasis

You tell Clara, "Uhhh. Is this going to hurt?"

"Not a bit." she replies.

"Okay. I'm ready for stasis then.' and everything fades to black.

You awake in your pod.

Clara says "Reanimation process... complete... Hello Grawr. How are you feeling?"

"I actually feel great!" You feel that the amplification of your powers has faded but your own power has grown. You are now a talented hemomancer.

"Has it really been a month?" you ask.

Clara replys, "Indeed, and we are fast approaching Zemkosat, the class-a gate that will transport us to Region 901. Come to the cockpit and I will show you."

Your seat belt releases. You push your way towards the ladder. John is stretching out while Mathias remains in his pod. You climb into the cockpit.

"What's that green donut?" you ask?

"That represents Zemkosat." The cockpit becomes transulscent revealing a gray ring in the distance.

"And that is Zemkosat."

See if dodgerolls still work in zero gravity.
More importantly, can we find out if the ship can dodgeroll? Never know when we’ll find a

in space.
This ship is self-piloted, but there are manual controls.

. . . .

. . . .

You shout, "DO A DODGE ROLL!" and pull on the lever.

You start to spin out of control.

Order Clara to throw a stone at it to check it for traps. My kobold nose smells a boobytrap. Improvise, Clara. If you can't find a stone, a piece of jerky works too.


"Firing mantis jerky.. now.." Clara says. Pew

The mantis jerky seems to go through the gate succesfully.

Spin faster! Try to stabilize the ship.

We've proved the point, no need to kill ourselves a second time.
We can probably let Clara handle the stabilizing for us. She's got rather more experience with such things than we do, after all.

here is the voted on action, to steer us to the correct track

You feel like you are about to vomit. "STOP THE DODGE ROLL!" You shout.

Clara states, "Stabilization complete.. Comment pyramids.. ended.."

A swirl of energy opens and pulls the ship in.

You see your home approaching. An elf appears on the hologram.

"Clara III, you are entering moon elf air space. State your business and cargo immediately." the elf says.

"How shall I respond?" Clara asks.

”I have living creatures I intend to take to a planet with life. Will you let us pass? There are no hostile intentions”

Uh, had a slight weapons malfunction. But, uh, everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you?
Also +1 since they’ll probably ask about the high-velocity jerky that flew through the portal

You say, "Let me respond. I know exactly what to say."

"Are you sure?" Clara asks. "My neural networks gives the best chance of success if I handle all communications."

You say, "and make it so the elf sees one of those moving sculptures but instead of me it's a handsome human wearing armor with his helmet off."

"Generating holographic avatar..."

You say, ”My cargo is living creatures that I intend to bring to the plane. Will you let us pass? There are no hostile intentions. We had, uh, a slight weapons malfunction but, uh, everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here, now, thank you. How are you?”

"Lieutenant. Take a look at this transmission." The moon elf says to her superior.

The lieutenant asks, "A monochrome hologram? How old is this ship?"

"The ship has no registered ID. Their objective is to bring living creatures to the plane."

Moments later, the lieutenant approaches a decorated female moon elf.

"Captain, we have a problem."

Back on Clara III the moon elf hologram cuts out.

"Missile launches detected coming from the lunar north poll conisiding with the termination of the elven communications" Clara states concernedly.

"Missile payloads.. thermonuclear warheads.."

You are pressed into your seat as the drive engages.

"Proceed to Class B gate. We area almost within range to teleport you to Cityshanks but we don't have much time."

Just before we go, can we make a backup of Clara on some sort of blood hard drive? A Cortana in our brain would be very useful even if the ship is kaput
lets copy Clara III to our mind and teleport out.
have Clara copy her mind into ours and then we teleport to Cityshanks
but also can we take her with us? She started as a program, so maybe she can copy herself into our body, that way she can live on with us

"Quick! Back up into my brain!" You aren't sure what the voices mean by this but some of them are very insistent.

Clara explains, "You don't have a chip so I can't upload into your brain. Hold out your hand."

You hold out your hand and a blue crystal materializes a couple inches above it.

"This is a data crystal you can use to create another Clara.. Clara IV.. if you can find a fabricator." Clara says.

You say, "I know you will dodgeroll the missiles but I'll find a fabricator anyways so we can have two Claras!"

You climb down the ladder and join the others in the circle.
