This looks fun! Maybe i can join sometime <(^^)>
OOC: Feel free to join whenever you like, the app sheet is on the front page of the thread. After you create a character, the DMs will have to approve you and then RP in your arrival (it'll be interesting to see how they do that now that the Academy is destroyed).
My turn takes the Ascension out of the path of the capital ship's shots, buying enough time to warp out again. The Ascension vanishes, appearing in orbit around one of the other planets in this system; one with a mostly tropical climate.
Having found a suitable location to warp to, I press a button on the control panel to begin the jump sequence. A hum goes through the ship as the landing gear deploys. Oops. Nothing else here that would be the warp drive either... must not be warp capable.
I sigh, and then put the engines to low power so as not to give off too strong a thermal signature, flying low along the bottom of the canyon. I would get as far away from the Consortium ships as possible, and then make a break for it into orbit. Then again...
I look up into the sky, the battle still raging fiercely there. I watch as one of the Consortium ships breaks in half, the two parts falling slowly to the ground. Then again, I do still need a proper ship. And if I die, I would be able to get back out of this place.
Synthis, my old boss and the head of the IATM, had a policy that if he considered any of his employees to have been sufficiently important to the IATM's development, he would revive them as whatever form of Celestial they chose. I had picked a wraith, and since I would end up getting revived back at Skycastle instead of where I died, there was really no reason not to take risks here.
That in mind, I put the engines to full, and begin a slow climb, the dropship's engines rumbling as they strained for altitude. The Consortium still thinks I'm one of theirs for the time being, hopefully that will last long enough for me to do this,
I think as I angle the dropship toward one of the Consortium frigates.
