@Terah: Well, if we're not going to get the Wraith of Gabe, can we get this?

I think we could add space-fairing fish to the game.
And then a fishing rod.
Guys, I'm serious.
Someone make a thread in suggestions for space fish.
Please make this a thing!

Spoiler

Would the other kind of shark be Spacefaring sharks that shoot rockets and armor piercing MAC rounds?
Sharks shooting AP mac rounds?

ohhhhh boy....

Jaws - in space! With a hegemonising swarm of titanium monster space sharks!

Not titaium. Neutronium space sharks shooting armor piercing depleted uranium MAC rounds.
That also have lasers...
And a nuke...
And ftl drives so they can follow you.
Don't forget the cloaking device.
A MAC gun that fires a hyperdrive capable homing missile with a nuclear payload.  :P

Updates?  Do I need to do CPR again?

Looks like CPR didn’t work.

*Watches Star Trek TOS*

Ah ha! Let’s use some
cordrazine
!  If we give him some it should work just as well, if not better than CPR!

*Remembers Important Detail*

On the other hand it may make him go temporarily insane.  Would having Aaron running around calling us assassins and killers be a bad thing?

*Stops digging Aaron's grave pool*

Maybe you just didn't CPR hard enough. Here I'll show you, I'm a certified expert as shown by my shiny tag.

*Starts Hitting Aaron in the stomach with the shovel performing CPR*

Would having Aaron running around calling us assassins and killers be a bad thing?

Why would he ever call us that?

@MRC, Well a cordrazine overdose will cause the victims to display the following signs including but not limited to:
  • Profuse Sweating
  • Dilated Eyes
  • Rapid Breathing
  • Erratic Behavior
  • Hysteria
  • Aggressiveness
  • Ability to knock people out with a neck chop
  • General Belief that People Surrounding them are killers
  • Urge to distance himself/herself from the people in the immediate vicinity

All of the above symptons were expressed by one Leonard ‘Bones’ McCoy, Former Chief Medical Officer serving on the USS Enterprise NCC-1701. (TOS, The City on the Edge of Forever)



Commander Jackson frowned as he finished reading the warning label on the cordrazine hypospray.  Letting out a disappointed sigh, Jackson placed the hypospray back into his medkit that was clipped to his belt. “I guess we shouldn’t start with that.”

The disappointed LD-EMT (Lazy dev E.M.T) turned in time to see MRC leap out of a grave pool that she had been digging in Aaron’s backyard. She was still holding a shovel and covered in dirt.  “Maybe you just didn't CPR hard enough. Here I'll show you, I'm a certified expert as shown by my shiny tag.”

Commander Jackson blinked as MRC flashed what was either a badge or a smart phone open to a page on an internet forum.  Before he could get a word in, he watched in shock as she engaged in the act of what could either be described as ‘very enthusiastic dev CPR’ or ‘beating Aaron in the stomach with a muddy shovel.’  Jackson quickly decided the latter description was more accurate.

I. Don’t. Think. It. Works. That. Way.” Each of Jackson’s words were punctuated by another swing of MRC’s shovel.

Another enthusiastic swing, Jackson caught the shovel at the height of its arc.  Speaking carefully, Jackson tried not to glance at the shovel in MRC’s hands as he tried to reason with her.  “Maybe it would be better if we use this.”

At the last word, Jackson unclipped a small portable AED from his belt.  “Shall we begin?"

Turn on the AED and follow the voice & visual prompts.

Step 3

Attach electrode pads to patient's bare chest (male or female) as indicated.

Step 4

Begin CPR

Step 5

Press Shock when Directed to.

OOC: It was at this moment where I regained the urge to type.

Commander Jackson cast an uncertain glance at Aaron's apparently lifeless body.  His thumb hovered over the shock button, not certain if he wanted to push it.  Defibrillators were used to stop a fibrillating heart (essentially nonstop hiccups within your heart) in order to give patient’s body a chance to restart the regular heartbeat.  Idea of stopping someone’s heart temporarily was not a comforting thought.  “Last chance Aaron!  Then I’m hitting the button!

OOC: It was at this moment when I started to wonder, Why am I typing this?

MRC's mind began to wander the moment Commander Jackson interrupted CPR. Something was off about this situation, but she couldn't put her finger on it. As Jackson let go of her shovel she took a step back, trying to focus, trying to piece back what happened.

She remembered dragging someone deep in the forest, but why? "Did I kill save him?" she wondered, her head hurt at the though, why? Her attention suddenly turned to Jackson and the body sleeping man. He was taking his pulse. "Nope. Nothing since the last six days" he muttered.

She felt a wave of relief. If it had been six days since he died fell asleep, she couldn't possibly be responsible. She payed vague attention to the rest of the procedures as they went on. Something was drawing her attention, Jackson's medkit. What was that thing he put back in? She didn't had time to see. She dismissed the thought and started looking around at their surroundings. Nothing but large pine trees, not very interesting, maybe she could find a few critters. She began pacing around searching in the branches.

Meanwhile Jackson was finalizing the preparations. Once set he rose up holding the trigger. "Last chance Aaron! Then I'm hitting the button!" He shouted. Something suddenly clicked in MRC's mind, who was this "Jackson"? How did he know the other man's name? And while we're at it how does he know he had no pulse for six days?

MRC quickly jumped back in panic, raising her shovel toward "Jackson". "Who are you?" She shouted "What did you do to him?"

OOC: Couldn't resist the RP, I'm sorry.
With love.  ~MRC

You do realize that's not Aaron you're...resuscitating...right? Obviously he switched places with his handmaiden.

So...

Gabe has a Wraith.
Aaron has a handmaiden.

What do you have Alaric?

Aw what a waste of a good plot twist.

Now, why were we trying to bring back Aaron for again?
