Visiting Seb

Bones, Cortez, Titus, Dorn

  • The Acolytes decide to head out to the W41 hospital and pay a little visit to their old buddy “Seb”.
  • After waiting quite some time, they manage to catch a subway to Mid Town, then walk a few blocks to the W41 Hospital.

*Mid Town is filled with Skyscraper Hab Stacks Ten to 15 stories tall, with commercial establishments on street level. The entire Mid Town area is surrounded by Hospital and Enforcer Stacks. Enforcer Presense in the area is very high, with a large degree of them showing either Electoral or Dukal insignias from House Gilbert.

  • Bones, Titus and Dorn enter the hospital through the front entrace. Cortez stays behind, outside.
  • Cortez looks for a service entrace to the Hospital and finds one, but is unable to get it to open for him.
  • Bones, Titus and Dorn, standing in line for reception, are behind a man who is complaining about severe headaches. The man is directed to go to the emergency entrace to an area with other patients suffering from the same symptoms.
  • When asked about the headaces by Bones, the receptionist explains that there was a severe duststorm recently, and the headaches are most likely a result of that. Nothing sure at this point, but it’s certainly nothing to worry about.
  • Bones, Titus and Dorn make their way up to the room on the 2nd floor where “Seb” is located
  • Cortez makes his way unobstructed past reception and begins looking for a data terminal.
  • “Seb” is in bad shape. He is missing his legs from the thigs down, he is missing his left arms and he has many bandages on his face and torso.
  • Bones asks a bunch of questions of Seb, resorting to inflicting pain by poking at his wounds. He reveals the following information:
  • Seb doesn’t remember anything about what happened to him after signing up with a booking agent going by the name of “Joran Doone”, who currently resides in the La Montaine Escarpment.
  • Seb injects himself with pain killers and calls for the nursing staff, swearing at the acolytes that he thinks are cops as they leave and head out to the La Montaine Escarpment. Home of the LME gang, AKA the “Love Murderin’ Enforcers”

Inquiring about Bloodsports

Bones, Cortez, Titus, Dorn

  • The Acolytes rest in their rooms for a couple hours then go out in the evening to find some entertainment.
  • Bones, Titus and Dorn head out to the Stokeland Landing spaceport drinking establishments to find out where some good bloodsport action can be had.
  • While the group is out, Titus find out some information from a local bartender:
  • All the sanctioned bloodsports are in arenas built into the lower levels of the Mid-Town Habs. The action that happens in these places is exclusively human on human combat
  • If you want something exotic, you might have to get into a private show at a mansion or what not
  • Other kinds of unsanctioned combats happen in the slums like the La Montaine Escarpment
  • A guy who used to be a Porter named “Seb”, a big guy who could take on anyone around, left to fulfill his dream of being a big shot Gladiator. He disappeared off the scene after an initial sucess, then recently turned up at the W41 Hospital in the South-western portion of the Mid Town Habs. He was in pretty bad shape and might not make it, from what the bartender says.

Arrival on Sophano Prime

Bones, Cortez, Titus, Dorn

  • Titus is getting beat by a crowd of Porters from the Spaceport having their lunch, one of them is grappling Titus
  • Bones and Dorn come around the hallway corner from their rooms in the Spaceport to see a fight happening near the crowded entryway of the Noodle Hut.
  • Cortez turns around and hurries back to aid Titus, while Bones and Dorn run toward the fracas
  • Gallus contines to run from the fight.
  • Bones, Cortez and Russ take turns beating down Porters
  • The Porter grappling Titus moves him away from the rest of the crowd, saying “I can take this guy!”, foolishly letting Titus go and giving him an opportunity that he doesn’t waste, knocking him out cold.
  • The fight is soon over with the Porters on the short end of things.
  • Bones eases the tension with the remaining Porters and the Porter Shieft Lead, who are still at the counter eating their lunch.

  • Inquisitor al-Subaai gives his newest team of Acolytes a new mission, to investigate rumors of Beast House activities on the mining planet of Sophano Prime.
  • The Acolytes search the Inquisition’s archives on Scintilla for more facts about the Beast House, but come away emptyhanded after two days of investigation

REFDATE: 165.815.M41
LOCATION: Chartist Gibson Epiphany

  • The Acolytes do further investigation of the Beast House among the travellers in the Transport vessel, and come up with two pieces of information. One piece of information describes some of the best blood sport arenas and Carnivoras on Scintilla and other major systems of Calixis, above board, almost touristy type of places and one traveller that has actually heard about the Beast House. “Yeah, I’ve heard of them. Xeno Hunters and Slavers, the lot of them. They’ve been called the Beast House as long as anyone can remember.” When asked if he’s seen them, he couldn’t say yes, only hinting that a cousin’s uncle’s friends wife or something had been to an arena of theirs.

REFDATE: 173.815.M41
LOCATION: Stokeland, Sophano Prime, Golgenna Reach Sub-Sector, Calixis Sector

  • The Acolytes arrive on Sophano Prime
  • The Acolytes decide to get two rooms in the Spaceport Hotel of Stokeland Landing, at the cost of 10 Thrones a month. The rooms are small, and there isn’t much to them, but at least you won’t have to stay out in the open.
  • They Acolytes go out for a bite to eat, and find a noodle bar in the bottom floor of the Spaceport, off the lobby. Most of the inhabitants of the city of Stokeland eat what are known as Sophano Potatos, hard lumps of nutrition that you can live on by gnawing on them all day. If you could get as much nutrition from sucking on a lump of canus excrementus, you’d rather do that. This place, however, is a step up. Serving “recently” spoiled imported “noodle” dishes with various special additions of the day.
  • The eatery is packed with large porters, dirty workers getting off shifts at the nearby Smelteries, Hotel guests and other hard, scummy inhabitants of the area surrounding the spaceport. Gallus, not used to such heavily inhabited surroundings, runs into the back of a large porter, who’s at the bar with 6 or 7 other large men wearing similar uniforms. The man’s food is spilled all over his uniform. He tries to apologize, without effect, and Titus offers to buy the man more food, but the man has none of it.

ARCHIVAL REFERENCE: Food Fight!

“It won’t happen again”, Gallus said. “You’re damn straight it won’t!” and the fight began. The heavy man took a swing at Gallus, but missed. Gallus then quickly moved away, trying to avoid a fight. Seeing Gallus in Trouble, Cortez drew his staff, prompting two of the heavy man’s friends to turn from their noodle bowls, pull out brass knuckles and head towards the fray. The first heavy, reaching Gallus but failing to grab him “C’mere, Punk!” is pushed out of the way with a shove from Titus at the doorway to the eatery. At this, two more men leave their noodles and head towards the commotion. Cortez and Gallus run from out the door into the lobby, but before Titus can follow, three of them are on him, with one managing to Wrap him up in his big arms.

The largest and heaviest of the workmen glances over at what is happening, and goes back to his food.
