|(OOC: Yay, I can squirrel in the first dice rolls! Also: Captain Awesome is messing stuff up! Now that's what I call AWESOME!!)|
Control room, unknown spaceship, somewhere in the Solar System
The Private pulls out his PDA, hits a button, grumbles something to the PDA, and sticks it back in his pockets. He frowns... and says to himself, "Hey Colemak..." followed by some comments on the ship's course.
The weird guy in the jumpsuit overhears, and seems to think he was being adressed. He proceeds to harangue his "fan" before getting distracted by the pizza; dashing over, picking it up, and sniffing it. It smells just fine. "Awesome!" He proceeds to scoff the pizza, trying not to spill any on his Captain Awesome suit. Let's see. That would be a... 10, using the cliche "preener (4)". *clatter* Success! Not a single crumb lands on the suit. Yumm, that's good stuff.
Meanwhile, Private Colemak looks for a trigger or lever to engage the rocket's auxilary power modules and lighting. That'll be a 5, with the cliche "Multi-tasker" as it's the most pertinent, with -2 deducted for innapropriate cliche. *clatter* He finds one and pulls it. The lights snap on.
"Oh, awesome! Levers!" says Captain Awesome, pushing one. It happens to be the one Colemak just pulled. The lights go off again. The Captain proceeds to pull and push all the levers he can reach, then push random buttons. Luckily, without the auxilary power reserves, there's no power to do anything, but who knows what might happen when you restore power. He could have activated anything by toggling those levers! Luckily the buttons are only operational when there's power on, and since all the really important functions are assigned to buttons, he can't have messed up anything too major. But you never know...
The Zargon ship turns towards the human ship, tracking it. "Guns charging, Captain," hisses and clatters the first mate.
"ZARGONS!" yell the crew of the Longdistance Planetary Patrol ship. The captain orders its guns to be charged as well.
Tick... tick... tick...
|Colemak wasn't pleased about it at all... He's obviously been out in space for too long. Far too long for his own good.|
Sighing, he turns to this... other person? He isn't sure about... that thing.
"...What are you?"
Colemak grabbed the club from the little area, and pointed it at the mysterious thing that he, despite that terrible use of vocabulary, could still understand. His hands began to shake, and perspire also.
"W-What do you want!?"

|"What am I? Hmm... You're definitely a strange fan... Can't you see! I'm a superhero! I'm Captain Awesome, the protector of Earth, the savior of mankind, the defender of justice, and a real good looking guy!"|
Captain Awesome then strikes an awesome pose, and waits for the flash of cameras that usually follows... Not seeing any flashes, he turns to the figure, and notices him offering a club to him...
"Oh, thwantanks! Hey, you're not that bad of a guy, picking up that club for me... I keep expecting my other fans bring things to me too, but all they seem to is handshakes and autographs and pictures... Not that I don't like handshakes and autographs and pictures, they're great too... Now, didn't you say you wanted my autograph?"
Captain Awesome takes the club, then notices the other figure shaking a bit... He must be really excited to see me! Captain Awesome thinks to himself... Then he hears the other figure speak again...
"Wow, you really are a nice guy, asking me what I want and stuff... The other kidnappers usually aren't so nice, making all kinds of demands and stuff..."
"I remember one time when a fan of mine kidnapped me and demanded that I give him some code or another... I think it might have been missile launch codes, I can't really remember, it didn't seem very important at the time... Anyways, I told him the code, and he went off and called some President or another and demanded a lot of money... I think he was trying to sell some of my pictures, though the price seemed a bit high... 500 million credits, I guess that's what my pictures are worth now..."
"Well, the next thing I knew, his fortress blew up around me, a whole bunch of people with guns came and got me, I'm assuming they wanted my autograph too... They said something about rescuing me, but as everyone know, Captain Awesome doesn't need rescuing!"
"Anyway, what do I want... Okay, I want a nice hot bubble bath, a change of clothes, and toothpick (made of gold, of course) to pick my teeth with... And get a full size mirror, I want to admire my reflection a bit... And it's a bit dark in here, maybe you could turn a light or two on? Oh, and rub my head a bit, I seem to have a bit of a headache... I'm feeling a bit tired too, go to my mansion and get my bed..."

Control room, unkown spaceship, somewhere in the Solar System
The Private grabs the club and points it at Captain Awesome with trembling hands. "What are you? What do you want?!?!"
Captain Awesome hmms. "You're a strange fan... Can't you see that I'm a superhero? I'm protector of Earth! Saviour of mankind! Defender of justice! As well as a really, really good-looking guy!"
He strikes a ludicrous pose that he obviously thinks is heroic and Awesome. Nothing seems to happen, and he suddenly notices the club pointed at him. "Oh, thanks for picking that up for me, friend!" He tries to take it from Colemak. that would be... hmm. *rustle of rulesheets* Well... I guess the most appropriate cliche would be "Show off"... *more rustling* alright, task severity of 5, with -2 for innappropriate cliche. *clatter* He fails to pull it from Colemak's hands. Aww... he launches into a memorandum of a fan of his kidnapping him and demanding some kind of code. I think he's exaggerating. He makes some outrageous demands of the "fan" and asks that the lights be turned on.
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeee go the charging guns on the two ships...

|(ooc: How is there a *clatter* when it's 2 - 2 = 0 dice? )|
(ooc: thwantanks? O.o)
"Hey, you need to let go of the club for me to grab it!"
|written by Malkom on Jun 07, 2011 01:11|
|(ooc: I subtract 2 from the result not the dice)|
Colemak swung the club, aiming to hit the thing that seemed to be addressing him. He may have hit, if it weren't for the fact his state of mind let his fingers loosen, resulting in the club going off somewhere.
"Oh, I have had enough with unexpected things for this year!"
He ran for the door, and threw all of his weight into his leg as he tried to smash it down.
That is, if there was a door.
"You are kidding me..."

Control room, unknown spaceship, somewhere in the Solar System
Captain Awesome asks the Private to put down the club.
The Private raises the club and swings it. It slips out of his sweaty fingers... and sails straight at the power lever.
Well, that was a one in a million chance. The lights are now on, a loud klaxon sound fills the room, there is the hiss of a radio, and several security cameras have started tracking the room's occupants.
Private Colemak runs for the door...
...to find out that there isn't a door. He hits the wall and slides down it before he can stop himself.
There's a crackle of radio signals. "*hsssssss* *crackle* This is the #$tance %#*(#^&ary Patr*l ship LDPP-101. We are in need of assist@#%&. W# are und$er att$ by Zargo--*hsssssssssssss*gunship, please assist, any ship within range--" The radio cuts off and goes back to soft hissing.
The LDPP-101's Captain finishes off the desperate emergency transmission. He knows he's outclassed. This is his last hope of survival - that someone will pick up the signals, impossible though it seems.

|Captain Awesome immediately tunes into the distress signal...|
"A distress signal! Someone is in need of saving! Captain Awesome to the rescue!"
Captain Awesome runs to the rocket's radio and attempts to sends a message back...
"Never fear, citizens! Captain Awesome will rescue you!"
He then runs to the ship's controls, presses a lot of buttons, looks for a radar of some sort, and attempts to pilot the ship towards the LDPP-101...
He seems to be showing off a bit, because he has a fan watching...

|(OOC: Yay, Captain Awesome messes things up again! What could be better?!?!)|
|Colemak shook his head as he tried to make himself aware of his surroundings.|
He tried to stabilise himself as he tried to climb back up.
"What a silly thing. Probably a joke that someone set up."
Colemak tried to recompose himself. That wasn't really anyone. Must be one of those things that he did himself to make the whole place lively. And this room... Must have been one of those virtual rooms. Yeah. Must have been.

|Control room, unknown spaceship, somewhere in the Solar System|
Captain Awesome rushes over to the radio and yells a message into the mic. On the other ship, it comes through like this:
*hsss**crack*Never f*e*%, ci**()$, #%&%^ai^ Awe$$ will come to r*#cue yo*!*crackle**hssssss*
He then rushes over towards the controls, and tries to fly the ship towards the LDPP-101. Penalty -4 for very innapropriate cliche and because he's showing off, thus going to do everything the most difficult way. Difficulty 5. *clatter* He just manages to clumsily set the ship moving in the LDPP-101's general direction...
The Zargon is firing on us! Begin conflict... the spaceship is a Armed SpaceShip (5 dice) and the Zargon ship is a Armed Desperate Zargon Ship (6 dice).
The Zargons attack, firing energy bolts. *clatter* IMPACT! The room shakes and there is a explosion from somewhere on the ship. We're down to 4 dice already!
You characters get to control the ship, and it will automatically shoot back if you don't do anything. If you want to pump the ship's cliche as in the rules, there's a nicely marked OVERDRIVE lever. Normal actions are still allowed.
The ship our heroes (or not heroes) occupy fires back automatically. *clatter* A hit: you can see the Zargon ship through the windows on impact, and the shot explodes against it.
Current ship stats: Us 4, Zargons 5.
Colemak tries to get up and inspect his surroundings. He sees that there isn't a door, but he suddenly notices a trapdoor under the stack of computer parts. It's locked, but the keychain nearby still has one key on it...
The klaxon is still wailing away. A red light is flashing over one of the levers Captain Awesome pushed. Anyone looking closer will see "self destruct system enabler" stamped on the handle.
(OOC: I just realized I changed the name from Zygons in the first Prelude to Zargons. Oh well.)
|Colemak has had it with this simulation... It seems far too real for him to remotely want to stick around. He grabbed the key chain, and attempted to open the trapdoor.|
"Heh. I think I've had enough for the time being..."
|written by Jam on Jun 09, 2011 15:37|
|Captain Awesome not Captain Obvious notices the blinking red light. |
"That lever must need pulling! Quick, pull that lever for me, fan-guy!"
Captain Awesome then focuses on trying to fire at the other ship...
"How dare they shoot at me! Captain Awesome will make sure those villains pay for that! FIRE!"
