Pirates of the White Tide

Post by Killer Ice Cream » Sun Oct 15, 2017 10:27 pm

Thurday, June 17, 2562
4:25 am

The wide expanse of the White tide was still aside from the occasional brush of faint electricity. Quartermaster Veronica stood on deck staring at the row of portals on the starboard side of the large black ship. Her hair flowed gently in the unnatural breeze as she stared ahead. "Veronica ma'am, it's nearly time to switch shifts. Shall I wake the next crewmen?"
Veronica turns, looking upon the nervous woman who's name she had forgotten. "Yes, thank you. But do not wake the Captain, he went to bed only an hour ago. I don't mind staying up longer." The meek woman nods and shuffles away, back through the airlock doors that kept everyone inside comfortable.

She stares aimlessly for a little longer, until the groggy crewmen arrive and Veronica heads downstairs to sit in the Captain's deck to watch the cameras.

6:28 am

"I'm gonna be late for breakfast!" The Sailing Master Bennet cried in her small room, frantically pulling on her Klaw Guard uniform and signature grey sweater. "Serina is gonna kill me, I can't believe I slept through my alarm!"

She pulled on grey socks and her gravity boots, making sure they were off in the already gravity adjusted ship. Before she left she filled her rabbit's food dish with pellets. "Here's your breakfast buddy, see you later!" Bursting out of her room, she immediately slowed down and meekly shuffled to the Mess Hall when someone came into view, ignoring her.

When Bennet got there, she was tackled into a warm hug by her best friend Serina, who was warm and smelled like pancakes. "What took you so long Benny?" Serina squealed, pulling back.

A burly man named Oren interrupted their conversation with a growl. "Quit squealing and get my breakfast already." Serina chuckles and points her spoon at him, "Keep up the attitude and you won't get anything." She smirks and goes back to the kitchen to plate the food and put it on the counter.

When Serina had her back turned, Oren brushes by Bennet and slaps her behind, hissing at her to keep quiet. She obeyed of course, biting her lip and shuffling away uncomfortably to eat in the kitchen with Serina. Oren laughs at her retreating forn, shoving a mouthful of pancake into his mouth. "Stupid broad."

8:12 am

"Cargo ship incoming! Man your stations!" Veronica bellowed, rushing down to the Captain's deck once more. She repeats her message over the ship speakers, being careful to turn off the one in the Captain's room. She begins to turn the ship toward the gleaming portal with blinking green lights. Suddenly Bennet was beside her, pulling up the many maps and charts with lightning accuracy. "The cargo ship is transmitting their destination to us, I think they want an escort."

Veronica flips a few switches and lights up the wide console, glancing at Bennet with focused and curious eyes. "Did they offer a reward?"

Bennet taps a few keys and watches the strange lines, a language she understood well but looked rather odd to anyone looking over her shoulder. "I'm getting their official transmisson now." Sge studies the screen for a few more seconds, scrolling after several beeps indicate an incoming transmission through her headphones. "Yes, 7000 coin. It's a hell of a deal Veronica."

Veronica nods, pulling up beside the portal wherthe bow of a ship was emerging. "Must be a hell of a cargo then."

0300 - June 16, 2562
White Sea - Unspecified Sector
3000km from nearest port

Platinum Dawn


The faint blue tinted glow of terminals painted the walls and ceiling. Holographic three dimensional maps flitted across the central holo-projector. Silence enveloped the ship’s bridge like an iron curtain, with only the low hum of the ship’s thrusters defying it. The silence wracked the crew’s nerves, every moment lasting an eternity. Then a sharp ping rang through bridge, causing a flurry of muted activity. Whispered words echoed through the room, terminals buzzed, and keyboards clacked rapidly.

Their information had been good. He was on a direct course for the bait they had set. Today they would bag one of the most infamous pirates who dared to sail the white sea.

The bait was an old cargo ship which they had requisitioned from a civilian scrapyard. It was still in relatively good shape, and had been loaded with dummy cargo to fool sensors into seeing unimaginable treasures. The ship itself was converted to a remote control drone.

As the pirate ship closed in on it’s seemingly unaware prey, the KGS Steel Balls crept up behind them. The cruiser was completely invisible to the unaware pirates, it’s newly requisitioned cloaking generator hiding it from wandering eyes. Five hundred kilometers of white space separated the two ships, four hundred kilometers was the effective range of the main cannons for a guaranteed kill. At four hundred and fifty nine kilometers the cloaking generator burned out. At four hundred and fifty kilometers the KGS Steel Balls was entirely visible. At four hundred and thirty kilometers the hunter realized it was the prey.

The pirate had nearly reached the bait when it saw it’s hunter, nearly fifty kilometers. They attempted to turn and flee, but every probability had been covered. The bait ship suddenly lurched towards the pirate ship, reaching it in seconds. They didn’t see it till it hit them. The strike knocked them off their escape course and canceled out their current velocity, bringing them to a slowly spinning drift towards the KGS Steel Balls. They never had a chance.

The KGS Steel Balls had wasted no time in their pursuit. They advanced towards the crippled pirate at a dangerous speed. The bounty was “Dead or Alive”. They wouldn’t risk attempting to capture him. The cruiser bore down on it’s prey, which stood to be much smaller than it. They wouldn’t waste precious munitions on them. The bow of the KGS Steel Balls collided with the pirate ship, ripping it, and the still attached bait ship to shreds. The KGS Steel Balls shuddered from the collision, steel creaking. A few moments later the the ship stabilized. They barely even dented the hull.

The crew burst into a cheers and applause, ecstatic that they had been victorious. Krieg let out a sigh of relief. The bastard had been brought to justice, and a platinum dawn was ensured.

0245 – June 16, 2562
White Sea – Unspecified Sector
2500km of the Lustful Deceit’s North

Lustful Deceit

The ship sat there watching the still cargo ship, Keg sitting at the top checking for signs of any life on the ship, with Oreo cuddling up next to her “Oreo. Tell Ash no apparent life” Keg said calmly said to the cat. The cat woke up with a light sneeze “Yeah, yeah, I got it” The cat said as it climbed down the rigging. The cat pushed through one of the doors on the ship with Ash and Powder discussing plans on how to get on the ship “Ashy, Keg says there’s no signs of life on the ship.” Ash smiled “That’s good, it just means that the info was partially correct” Powder frowned “Listen sis, I know you’re the captain and all that, but what if it’s a trap.” Powder said as Oreo climbed up on the desk

Ash sighed then smiled “Hold up, ain’t some other guy supposed to be trying and grabbing this other treasure. Ok Powder get Clink and tell her to bring us to a full stop, swap the sails to something normal and all that stuff.” As all three of them walk out of the cabin “Aye, aye captain.” Powder said as she jumped down to the engine room to tell Clink the new orders “So Ashy, what we just wait.” Oreo said as Ash petted her “Yes we wait.”

15 mins later

As The Lustful Deceit sat there watching and waiting for someone else to show up and see if it was bait. As soon as the other ship had come close to the unmoving ship, a Klaw ship became visible and rammed into the other ship, Ash sighed “Hey, Keg what’s happening, any recognizable Klaw?” Keg zoomed in her scope and hissed “Damn, Ash it’s Krieg.” Powder and Ash sharply inhaled “Damn, ok ladies, turn and let’s get the hell outta here” Ash yelled “Yes captain!” Clink yelled as she turned the engines back on, put the sails down and turned away from the trap

As soon as they were far enough away all the sisters and Oreo gather on deck "Well I hate to say it ladies," Ash said pacing back and forth "but we ain't getting paid today. However I would like to pay special mention to Keg, Oreo, Powder and Clink for not getting us caught, so thanks lady. Now Loli is lunch ready." Ash finished. "Yep, lunch is already to go. Today is burgers." Loli said as they moved to the small dining area

0600 -- June 16, 2562
White Sea -- Flotsam's Diner and Grocer Port

"My crew is full of idiots and women... And an idiot woman to boot." Groaned Zelguis as Wilm prodded him for a third time. The man was sitting in his overlook of the main bridge in the Captain's Cabin. Through the one-way window, he watched one half of his crew disembark while the other half boarded to take their place. "But Captain, the crew barely sees you at all unless we're in real danger. You need to socialize with them. Besides, I don't want to bring your food all the way from the diner to the ship..." Sighed the young Quartermaster, shaking his head. The Killer Queen's captain rested his cheek on his fist. "Is that insubordination I hear slipping through your lips, Boy?" Said the dark-skinned man in an unamused tone. "N-No Captain! I'll bring your meal, on the double!" Stuttered Wilm as he backed away from the former Pirate. Even though Zelgius liked Wilm the most out of his high-priority officers, he was not above striking him if the boy agitated him. Deciding that this was the perfect time, Wilm excused himself and left the Captain's Quarters.

Marie was practically dragging her older sister into the Flotsam Port. Roxy, the shorter of the siblings simply followed along, not really one to argue with her sister. Not because she wasn't confident in her ability to win, but because she was certain that Marie would cause a scene by sniveling, followed by running off and getting lost in the Port. Not that Marie couldn't handle herself, but because it was such a chore to track her down. Seriously, Marie is such a child. Thought Roxy, as her younger sister tugged her arm unnecessarily. I can't believe she's turning 23 this year, she acts like she hasn't gotten past fourth grade. Good grief..

Tonya was in the guts of the Killer Queen, cleaning out her gunk and feeding her that sweet, sweet fuel. It was around then that she heard the footsteps of the morning crew heading out. The engineer had eaten with the night crew to get breakfast out of the way and went right back to tinkering with the Queen's most intimate parts. With a gentle hand, she oiled the Queen's pistons, lubricating them for the thrusting they were in for ahead. Unbeknownst to the Blacksmith, the Cook Vaso had done the same thing, but instead of eating, she went out for groceries. Now she was stocking the coolers and freezers with all the goodies she bought. Vaso hummed happy little tune as she worked, making a note to hide all the snacks in her quarters. Since the rest of the crew didn't help her, she decided that lunch would be all green. Salad, cabbage soup, and sour apples.

Izabella was patting Beula's back. Beula had her head in one of the port's restroom toilets and was currently emptying the contents of her stomach into it. "Now Beula, what did we learn about overextending ourselves?" Asked the Doctor in a motherly tone. "Oh my Go-Bleeeeeegh! It's not my fault! Blurgh! They said all-you-can-eat! So I ate all I could- Aaaaagh!" Responded the Navigator between vomits. Izabella shook her head and continued rubbing the shorter woman's back. "How are you going to navigate when you're stomach's on the outside of your body?" The Doctor clicked her tongue in a disappointed tone. "Tell the captain to get of his lazy ass and do something for once." Retorted Beula, wiping her mouth with the back of her hand before quickly wiping the remainder of her lunch off of said hand with toilet paper. "Oh, look at me, I'm the captain! Woooo, look at my black and red armor, I'm so intimidating. Too bad I can't accessorize to save my life and carry around a gray and green staff! Seriously, why is he even alive? He's a captain in name only." Beula vented, flushing the toilet she had blessed with her upchuck. "Now, now. Who do you think gets all those bounties we hunt down, or those missions we go on?" The doctor said, standing up and embracing the younger woman from behind. Patting her on the head, she continued. "He's just shy, that's all. Nothing wrong with a man being shy."

Zelgius sneezed. Rubbing his nose, he looked out onto the bridge again. "... That boy better be quick, I haven't eaten anything since I raided Vaso's pantry 24 hours ago."

Thursday, June 17, 2562
White Sea, West Talon Sector
Open tide

8:20 am


Six minutes. That was all it took for the peaceful white to spiral into hell, especially with a treasure trove of cargo beside them. The crew scrambled around inside the massive ship, Oren barking orders to fight off not one, not two, but three incoming pirate ships while Veronica was furiously issuing orders. Bennet had to take over driving, boldly slamming into a smaller ship while Oren's cannons on the starboard side brutally wounded another one.

The only problem now? It would take five minutes for the main set of cannons to recharge on that side, and a misfire rendered all the
Interloper III's main weapons useless.

The final pirate ship was huge, a giant dark blue monstrosity that may at one point have been a space cruise ship. The hull had a few dents and battlescars, but it was mostly intact and faster than you would expect. Veronica sighed at the cameras, peering through the large window as the opposing ship was hot on their charge's tail. "What do we do Veronica? If I hit that thing we will take considerable damage." Bennet asks, doing her best not to panic. They still had another thirty minutes of travel to reach their destination, and their odds were looking dim.

After a moment of hesitation, the Quartermaster of the Interloper III set her jaw and made an announcement through the speakers of her entire ship. "I need all crew with fighting experience on deck, with guard groups 3, and 7 staying behind to protect our ship. We are boarding this pirate."

Bennet whips her head to look at her, shocked. "What about protocol?"

Veronica's cold eyes send a chill up Bennet's spine. "We don't have time."

....

8:25 am

In less than five minutes everything was ready, and Bennet was left in the control room to steer the ship beside the pirate while Veronica prepared the electromagnetic grapple guns for boarding. "Faster! We don't have much time, get those things ready to fire!" She yelled, ferociously storming the small walkway of the Interloper III. Activating her metal glove, she pulls out her foldable metal boomerang and whips it an enemy trying to shoot her crew.

He collapses, and his breathing mask where she hit crumbles, making him squirm in suffocation while she calls back her weapon and grabs a grabble gun. Suddenly a hundred Klaw Guard crew launches onto the scrabbling pirate, slamming and shooting their way across the deck.

Oren makes his way across effortlessly, swinging his axe with frightening precision and sending exploding pieces of pirate into the void. Harry's needler took down several as he jumped aboard, tgeir writhing bodies a testament to the level of poison in each scattered dart. Eventually they made it to the Captain's deck, where they captured the woman and some of her more important crew.

With their new bounty in tow and headed to their cells in the belly of the ship, the still intact crew of The Interloper finished their mission with a sigh of relief.

Open tide

8:25 am
As Keg looked through her scope and was watching the carnage finish up “Keg, what’s the report? Do you reckon we can fight this Klaw ship and grab the riches” Ash yelled “Possibly. Young Klaw was fighting” Keg replied, Ash smiled when she heard the news “Excellent, Powder, tell Clink to put everything into the thrusters and go straight for the ship.” Ash said “Aye, aye, Captain!” Powder said she then jumped down the steps to the control/engine room “Clink! Everything into the thrusters and straight for the ships!” “Aye, aye” Clink said she then steered the ship towards the carnage as fast as possible. “Booma! Man the cannons and prepare to fire” Ash continued to yell as Booma started jumping around the ship getting the cannons ready “All done Ashy” She said

“Excellent, Doc and Loli up here now and prepare for a fight” Ash yelled at the kitchen as Doc and Loli appeared ready, Loli with a pot in one hand and a pan in the other, while Doc had her scythe in one hand and a bag of all types of non-lethal bombs “All right ladies! Listen up, here’s the plan we keep the ship as far away as possible while still being able to board the other ship, so if things get too hairy we can easily get out of there. Clink, you, Loli and Keg will stay on the ship, Keg to survive support and you two to protect the ship” Ash yelled as they were closing in the rest of us will board the Klaw ship and prepare to fight them. Everyone understand?” Ash continued “Yes Ma’am” the others said “Alright Booma fire the starboard cannons!” Ash yelled “Yes ma’am! Hahahahahahahaha” Booma yelled as she started firing the cannons

Open tide

8:30 pm


Before the Crew of the Interloper could even finish their sigh of relief, another pirate ship comes barrelling towards them firing wildly. The quartermaster is still down with the prisoners, unaware of the situation at hand. Bennet on the other hand can see everything in the Captain's Deck and panics. Turning on the ship's speaker, she forgets to turn off the wire to the captain's room while she calls for Veronica. "We have a fourth pirate, heading straight for us. I think they want to board! Ah! They're firing!"

As soon as Veronica heard Bennet's plea, she groaned and slammed the cell door on the snickering pirate. "That one's gut a backbone, a'int she?"

Slapping back together her gear, she growls, "Shut up." Before storming back up the steps and toward the hall to lead her down to the again. A tell tale groan and slamming made Veronica's stress levels go even higher. "What the hell is this racket 'bout a fourth damn pirate? You goin' on a killin' spree Veronica?"

The door opens and the bear of a man blinks at his daughter, the red in his eyes a grim reminder of the night before. "No daddy, a cargo ship requested an escort and half the damn Room is on us for it!" He clears his throat, a gruff gurgling sound that was as unpleasant as it looked painful. "Oh. I see, well can't you just blast 'em?"

Veronica smiles patiently, taking her father's arm and leading him as quickly as possible to where Bennet was. "Our weapons should nearly be ready daddy."

He nods, pulling the rest of his uniform on before turning away from Veronica. "Good. I'm going up deck to see face to face what we are lookin' at. You calm that little mouse at the controls before she breaks my ship."

Veronica nods, "Yes sir!" before running down to Bennet, where she calms her down and sends electronic orders to Oren for all main and secondary weapons to fire at the pirate asap. General Ivan gets on deck just in time to see a scattered plasma shot strike the edge of the Interloper III's bow. He grabs his laser beam chainsaw rifle from the weapon's rack and fires a warning shot near the other ship's deck, to remind them who they were dealing with. The man's huge form and many war medals on his chest left no doubt as to who he was.

Just then Bennet turned the ship so the port side was facing the pirate, and Oren shot all the cannons on that side in a straight sequence.

1825 - June 16, 2562
White Sea, West Talon Sector
Moored at Port Boeing


Blair maneuvered through the crowded port with ease, pushing aside any who dared to block her path. That cloaking generator had cost her a pretty penny, so she was going to go give a crook a mouthful. When she reached the bastards abode she let her foot do the knocking for her. Three kicks was all it took to break open the flimsy door, and behind it was a visibly terrified crook. Blair made sure he'd never bother anyone again. On her way back to the ship she bumped into Karla, who informed her that a new cloaking generator had been purchased and that a military grade shield generator had also been requisitioned.


0831 - June 17, 2562
White Sea, West Talon Sector
Open tide, 800km from the Scene of Battle


The KGS Steel Balls cruised towards the battle that had suddenly erupted. They had been lurking near the nearby portal in the hopes of catching some lowlife scum, but had not expected to witness semi-organized pirate fleet activity. Kreig refused to let a pirate get a lucky kill on a Klaw ship. The KGS Steel Balls entered battle mode as it approached, and prepared to fire on the remaining pirate ship.

As they approached the Klaw ship and were peppered by cannon shots “Ah, shoot, Ok Doc scythe up and throw us over” Ash said as she picked up Oreo and started running towards Doc “Aye, aye sis” Doctor said as she Ash jumped and pushed off the blade and flew over, while Powder and Booma did the same thing while Doc soon followed jumping over. As Doc landed over on the Klaw ship “Hello, Ivan Klaw, how goes the protecting of the White” Ash said sarcastically as she petted Oreo “You know I heard you guys are pretty formidable so let’s put that to test” Ash smiled as Oreo moved to her shoulder and sat there and Ash readied herself, as Powder and Booma did the same thing while Doctor dropped a massive smoke bomb to cover the deck and she walked into the smoke.

Meanwhile back on the ship, Clink with Loli’s help fire the cannons back at the “Keg! What’s going on?” Clink yelled as she continued fixing up the ship “Well we are going up against the main man Klaw. So as usual the captain is going in over her head” Keg said as the smoke covered the ship “Damn, can’t get a good shot off here.” Keg said to herself. As Clink ducked under a cannon blast she saw another ship coming towards them "Keeeeeeeeeeeeeggggg! Another ship is coming, need visual on it!" Clink yelled. Keg turn around to face the ship coming towards them and zoomed in "Shit, we gotta problem" she yelled down as she slide down the rigging "We've got another Klaw ship coming the same one from yesterday, probably to keep us stuck in between them." Keg said as Loli whimpered "Oh god, we're going to get killed aren't we" Loli continued tears slowly going down her face "Loli, keep calm, we just need to keep the ship running until the others finish the fight." Clink said calmly "But right now we need to make sure we survive the incoming ship. Loli help me with the cannons and Keg, do what you do best" Clink said "Yup" Keg said and then climbed back up and started to get ready to fire at the new ship

Ivan huffed impatiently, eying the little girl and her cat smirking at him from her small height. "I don't have time for little girls playing dress up, where is your captain?" He doesn't cough even once in the Doctor's smoke, since all of his Vermat masks come with a special component to block out all particles except the most important.

The crew on deck fired back, returning any shots on the pirate's deck with strong laser guns. Veronica dropped the ship, making it go down vertically into a little bit of the thicker white. The ship creaked, but held since they weren't all thst far in yet. Ivan didn't blink, just watched the girl in front of him quietly.

Oren came out on deck, wielding his huge vibration axe with malice. "What, a bunch of women are on that ship?" He snarks, putting it down a bit.
