Echoes of Invasion: Dwarvish Discourse | Scene 9

GenesysDice

As they hike out to the mine entrance, Hepalonia tells her cousin about all the different sources of iron she learned about in the refinery. After she exhausts that topic, she wonders aloud about whether undead also pollute water. “Are they too unnatural to rot?” she wonders. Tric Manu suggests that they are already rotten, … Read more

Neither Daven nor Port have personal connections among the dwarves at the refinery, so Heppa and Tric are forced to rely upon their own charming personalities to get people talking. They split up, each taking a minder. Tric figures that refiners are beneath smiths in the grand hierarchy of dwarvish careers. Looking to boost their … Read more

Prior to weaving their way out of the alehouse and towards the forge, the elves and their minders eat a hearty lunch to soak up some of the drink they have consumed. Then Daven leads Tric Manu and Hepalonia through the dwarvish fortress and back across the wide plaza where they talked with Trigadur. They … Read more

The protoss warrior leads the way from the hangar, marching on ahead through the wide station corridors towards Lendasha’s chambers. The three pirates take up positions on either side of and behind the new arrivals. “Oy, any news from out there? Dominion still dominating?” one of them asks. Wonder how many protoss are on board, … Read more

“Oy! Who’s there? The station’s closed!” A rough terran voice hails Saffron as the science vessel finally nears Iceberg Station. Several ships of clearly protoss design are docked on the exterior, as are a couple terran ships. The protoss craft look quite similar to Malorn’s fighter, some even a bit bigger. “Yeah, yeah, yeah,” Imogen … Read more

Later, once Malorn has emerged, Lilly offers him his pick of high-proof beers Atomic Ale, Stiff Ya’, and Ball-Buster, as well as the old standby, Kick in the Face. Imogen, meanwhile, lays out her plan. “We’ll hail the station and tell them we’ve captured a tal’darim that we want to ransom to them.” Malorn offers … Read more

Lilly and Imogen do not detect the arrival of Malorn’s ship with Saffron’s sensors, but eventually an oddly generic white woman of decent height with a long blonde braid approaches the area where the science vessel is hidden. “I guess he got through the control tower without any problems,” Lilly observes. She lowers the ramp … Read more

After a decent night’s sleep on a floor covered in straw—not as comfortable as her bed back home but better than the rough terrain in Kachen’s keep—Hepalonia joins Tric Manu as he accompanies Mari-Elin to the cart-loading area. Her cousin seems to have a plan, and she intends to watch how it plays out and … Read more

At the door to Mira’s headquarters, Lilly and the marauder escorts turn and enter the compound. Imogen continues plodding onward, head so fuzzy that she does not realize she is no longer following anyone. After a few steps, it sinks in that she no longer hears the incessant droning of power armor praise. She lifts … Read more

Lilly and Imogen wind their way through scrap hovels and past chop shops. Dead Man’s Port is a scavenger’s dream, but a sanitation worker’s nightmare. “I wonder if Mira’s got more sway here than the last time we were around,” Imogen says, “if she’s got a control tower harassing incoming ships.” Lilly shrugs. “We don’t … Read more

Being on the outskirts of terran space, Dead Man’s Rock is an excellent place for under-the-radar meetings. And being a giant pile of trash itself, it is also a good place to hide a ship. As Saffron flies toward it for the rendezvous with Malorn, Imogen bounces ideas about their upcoming job off Lilly. “If … Read more

Mari-Elin pulls her handcart through the tunnels, guiding the elvess to the dwarvish settlement. Tric offers to help, but she turns him down. The cart is not much, but it is hers. She tells them that people laughed at her when she said she was going to get into the carting business, but she has … Read more

Mari-Elin leads the elves through a long stretch of tunnels, passing several branch points along the way. The underground passageways are a lot more elaborate than they had realized, so they are glad to have found a guide to the dwarvish fortress. All that stands between them and their goal is some cart stuck in … Read more
