Well I have been gaming since 1979. Mostly pen and paper, some online,
but I really enjoy crafting stories with others. Which is what led me to this
site. I Have been a storyteller and dm for most of my gaming experience.
I am hoping I will be able to open up my world here and have some
excellent role-playing.
The nitty gritty I suppose. I am a Realtor in CA. I have been an
investigator for the Health and Human Services Agency.
I have been a high school teacher.
I have an MA in Human Behavior and a BA in communication.
I write fantasy as a hobby and I enjoy reading quantum physics and
exploring the viability of the multi-verse and M theory.
I enjoy storytelling which is what collaborative role-play is.

Three Billion miles from the Grimore System-


Deep in the bowels of the mothership a tall being rose slowly from a pool of briny water. As the glistening flesh reflected the dull lights, several tentacles moved and coiled as the being wiped water off the sleek limbs. Turning large black eyes towards the smaller Qua that waited patiently, Har'ath'sha dressed slowly, as he did so he nodded for the smaller being to speak. “We have found another system with life and resources that can benefit the Qua.” The thoughts rapidly transmitted to the larger being, who nodded as the ornate robes shifted and draped over his form.

Glancing at the smaller Qua, Har'ath'sha's thoughts flowed easily, “Has the King been informed of this?” The smaller being nodded then after a moment hissed before speaking, “Our sister ship has encountered life forms willing to fight. It seems that they found a small system of hominids. When our brothers attacked, other fleets of ships appeared to defend the planet.” The high-lord pondered this as he moved with an elegant grace towards the lifts that would lead to the command center of the vast world ship. “Do we need to assist our sisters then?” He queried. The smaller Qua shook his head, “No, the sister-captain merely said it was a delay to the harvest, nothing more.”

Stepping on the vast command deck, the high-lord peered at the sister-captain of his own world ship and allowed his thoughts to flow to her, “This system. Tell me of it's potential.” Rising from her chair that was submerged in a warm brine, the sister-captain bowed slightly as she pointed towards the massive screens, “This system has life and many materials we require. It appears easily harvestable, however we have noted an oddity that seems to surround the system.”

Gliding towards a smaller screen, the sister-captain tapped it and a pulled out a multidimensional map was displayed. “They have this...cloud. It seems to be inherent to the system itself but we are having trouble isolating and identifying the exact nature of it.” Har'ath'sha peered close to the screen allowing the data to scroll as he took it in, after a long moment he nodded and thought, “Send a single harvester, if makes it with little effect we shall proceed.”

The sister-captain nodded and began a series of thoughts to several officers on the command deck, who promptly began their own thought orders until on one of the harvest ships that hung along the vast superstructures began alive with activity as thousands of Qua prepared the ship for launch. On the command deck, the high-lord moved to his large chair and sat down slowly, as he did so, a warm flood of water swirled and flooded the area around his feet, giving him a feeling of comfort as he expanded his mind's energy to encompass the thought waves of the various captains of the harvesters and the commanders on the deck.

Aboard the harvest ship the sister-captain watched the reports appear on her screen as the ships company quickly and efficiently prepared their ship for launch, as she did so she noticed that none of the other harvest ships were preparing for launch. An oddity perhaps, but being Qua it surprised her little, perhaps this was an event that only her ship could handle. A tingle of pride washed through her and by virtue through her thoughts to the others who also swelled with pride.

A little over an hour later the harvester dropped away from the superstructure and whipped around on stabilizing fields. It's course was the main planet of this system. Moving at incredible speeds the ship skipped and wobbled along magnetic fields, as it entered the anomaly it began to buffet and shake. What ever the cloud was it was affecting the magnetic fields of the ship, not greatly but enough that the ship had to slow slightly to maintain it's forward momentum. The large eyes of the sister-captain peered at the screens, her fingers drumming on the chair's arm as she felt the shudders in the ship and understood that the magnetic fields were stable but something was affecting them in a way that caused the ship to have to adjust more than normal. “Prepare for our arrival.” Thought the sister-captain with certainty as she sank back into her command chair, the roiling salt water sloshed against her legs.


Signature

The writer who cares more about words than about characters, action, setting, atmosphere is unlikely to create a vivid and continuous dream; he gets in his own way too much; in his poetic drunkenness, he can't tell the cart- and its cargo- from the horse.
