And it's reported, I will close this campaign end of the week in case something went wrong

@grinds, you gave 701 as char number, but I think it should be 702?

Liberty's Edge

Lynn's missiles take down one of the little goblins who falls down with a few singed holes in his body. His little friend has enough and decides to fade into the fog and can be heard running off.

Just after the camera crew takes the last set of pictures, Wazasha asks aloud, “How about we hear how they’re wrapping up the event in the studio?” She pulls up a program on her wrist computer, which plays the live audio feed with Zo! shouting excitedly.

“What a discovery! What a destination! What a band of unlikely heroes! What could lie deeper in Salvation’s End? Find out on the next episode of Live Exploration Extreme! when the Starfinder Society returns to—” “What?” shouts Luwazi with alarm from near Zo!’s microphone. “That was not part of our deal, Zo! You can’t just add a sequel when we haven’t—” Zo!’s voice insistently cuts back in. “Ha ha! And now a word from our sponsors!”

A booming add for Nova Solutions blares out of Wazasha’s computer before she closes the program, rolls her eyes, and orders the teams to retrace their way to the surface. The Team might be eager to explore the simulation gallery beyond, but Wazasha warns them that there are likely more deadly threats beyond, and that Luwazi Elsebo would want to give them a proper debriefing before sending them deeper into the unknown. Furthermore, there’s still the question of what to do with the Marbleheart dwarves. The gaping hole through which the team arrived and the open door into this chamber shatter the artificial existence in which the dwarves have lived for at least a century, and the existence of a larger galaxy beyond their tiny world may inspire some to travel the stars. For others, the stress may be too much without patient mentors to guide their path. It’s clear, though, that given the malfunctioning machinery, remaining in the simulation isn’t a viable option.

Back on the Exemplarion, Luwazi seems somewhat frazzled as she meets with the Team to hear their un-glamorized accounts of their expedition. She reports that Zo! is desperately trying to negotiate for additional filmed excursions, but so far she’s left him with a curt “We’ll see.” Prior to dismissing the Team, Luwazi asks for the group’s thoughts on whether Live Exploration Extreme! should return for another episode or not. Otherwise, the Starfinders are free to partake in the endless festivities on the Exemplarion, where they can bask in the fame and infamy of their respective performances.

The Starfinders arrive back at Absalom Station shortly after the live broadcast reaches the Pact Worlds. Rora, Lynn, Kemple, Pytho, Verus and Grinds get invited as guests to a host of programs, game shows, nightclubs, and other events. Sadly, the fame only lasts for about a week, after which the news cycle quickly latches onto new short-term celebrities. It’s only a matter of time before the Starfinders receive their next call to explore the galaxy and make a name for themselves.

Here are the Chronicle sheets, let me know if I missed something.

Once more my apologies for the moving mess, the mess with the funeral etc. You guys been a blast!

Liberty's Edge

This is the last fight, are there people that want their char up for GD? I will sort your chronicle sheets tomorrow as we round up everything (and I don't think last 2 goblins will kill anyone).

If so, roll for your dayjob and I will get the chronicles finished tomorrow as I am running PF2 playtest today

With the combined effort of Kemple and Grinds the big goblin falls over in a seemingly buddle off green mixed with junk.

Botting Verus and Pytho

Verus makes his way in a true Veskian way to the front, getting ready to kick ass and take names, grunting and getting all worked up. At the same time Pytho makes his way next to Rora and seeing the large goblin appear takes a snap shot at the creature.

So apparently my phone at the goblins, they are up now

From out of the mist a loud whoosh can be heard before a loud thunk can be heard and the sound of another junkzapper can be heard as a big goblin shows up and lets go off a shot at Rora

Botting verus to keep it going

Hoping to put some markers on the map for the 2 new goblins, but work decided to block google slides etc (red goblin is on the map, there another one next to him as well but google maps is being annoying on the phone)

The large Vesk makes his way to the front as well as he tries to see through the fog also, but fails to see anything standing out.

Verus, Perception: 1d20 + 0 ⇒ (4) + 0 = 4

All of a sudden 2 little goblinoid figures step out of the fog a good 40 feet away from Rora and they let go 2 quick shots at the flashy Ysoki. and both miss her

this is the last part (and I am pretty sure this combat will be over quickly with what rora just did).

Liberty's Edge

With Grinds leading the charge and making it towards the bridge he doesn't seem to see anything out of the ordinary as it is. Kemple carefully makes her way upwards aswell and notices indeed some pipes malfunctioning but nothing that seems to be a threat to her.

Holsin describes the half orcs and those listening understand he is describing goblins and their weaponry and that it is a race the dwarves never encountered, the way he is describing the tunnels indicate that some sort of fumes are escaping that are less then healthy to the dwarves but the starfinders might be able to make it through due to their advanced gear. If the team instructs the dwarves on where to go they will slowly make their way towards salvation's end exit while they would carry on to take care of the goblins.

When the team makes their way down the tunnels it takes them another 90 minutes before they are slowly stepping into more and more toxic gas, it becomes so dense that the visibiliuty is reduced to 60feet. And with that it seems the team has stepped into what seems to be a cavern filled with gas for as far as the sight goes.

Holsin’s very disturbed by the cave-in that nearly killed him. Despite his tireless piety, it seems that Torag is angry with the dwarves. He is quite open to discussing his concerns and theories with the Starfinders, including his suspicion that the dwarves are near the surface. For generations his people have climbed higher and higher in the Darklands, following Torag’s prophesied tremor that began the Quest for Sky. Ever since, Torag has rumbled periodically, coaxing his people to ascend. Now Torag’s miracles have become less powerful, which Holsin believes is because the god’s power is diluted by the influence of surface faiths with which he must contend. The “short orcs” have also returned with magic wands from the surface to fight their age-old enemy. Furthermore, the orcs have used vile surface magic to channel the sky-realm’s toxic air into the caverns and kill the dwarves.

Liberty's Edge

The combined efforts off the starfinder team is being broadcasted as they work on lifting the stones to rescue the dwarves. As they are doing it the notices on the feed go off, some for cheering them on, others wondering if the dwarf would still be functioning after it all. With a final push the dwarf is freed. It looks like he has had seen better days, his breathing is a bit labored but overall he seems to be in good spirits as he turns to the team "Thank you for assisting me, Torag mush have heard my prayers and sent you to look after me, Torag be praised!"

With all said the team makes their way out the same way they got in and soon thereafter they meet up with the other dwarves again who are delighted to see their priest. Wazasha is using this time to setup another booth and this time Grinds is invited in to tell about his exploits and win over the hearts of the viewers online.

Liberty's Edge

As the team makes their way into the room they find remains of what could be some sort of oozing creature that, by shear luck ran into falling debris. Kemple is doing the slip and slide as he goes and stumbles into Rora who comes to a halt as she points to a dwarven arm that seems to struggle against rocks.

Liberty's Edge

Kemple:
The fluid is tenacious, and even a brief cleaning with token spell only reduces the Acrobatics check DC to move to 6.

With the team now inside what seems a half collapsed storage room they can see to ways out, the one to the East seems to be accesible by someone small enough while the way North seems to be able to allow everyone through. The camera's are focusing on a greasy Kemple for a few minutes before showing the rest of the team, waiting to see where they want to go.

Liberty's Edge

The fissure lances through the cavern wall and winds as it encounters especially dense bands of stone. It’s only about 5 feet tall, and is filled with oily fluid to a depth of 3 feet.

Engineering/Physical Science DC13:
this as a synthetic lubricant, much as would be found in a mechanical engine or hydraulic system. The substance isn’t directly harmful to the touch

Depending on how the team wants to make their way through the fissure either a climb or Athletics check is needed DC 15 for medium sized, DC 10 for small sized, Grinds counts as squeezing. Unless someone fails the check the team makes their way inside the next room and are followed by a dozen small camera drones who are recording all of their movements. After making it up the stares the team comes into a large storage room.

At work and cannot move the team, but you are in the lower right room

Liberty's Edge

Wazasha listened to the team as she checked the polls, when it was nearly decided by the starfinders on where to go she speaks up "Well Starfinders! The poll seems to have come to an end... and it seems that our faithful audience wants you to go the path of... the fissure!" Alot of drama, pausing and efects are being put in her announcement as the camera's zoom in on all of the starfinders faces to record their responses.

Liberty's Edge

Ugh, sorry... apparently my copy and paste failed when I posted it yesterday and being a bit tired I missed it, apologies. Sidenote, this part of the quest is a bit weird described and I wish Paizo would indicate where people start on a map...

Doing a bit of a retcon here, so apologies and hopefully after this it is a bite more clear

The dwarven female points towards the area where the temple is and she looks happy to see that the starfinders are willing to help. It's clear that they could use any help they can get. She guides you towards the area where the temple is and once there the starfinders can see there are several dwarves trying to move a boulder that has fallen aside and another group of dwarves are trying to break through a reinforced wall.

Once there Ylga start to examine the scene and after some examination, she determines that there are two likely ways to get in and help Holsin: remove the boulder or send in a small group through the fissure. Several dwarves determine that the fissure’s trajectory should lead to its intersecting with the temple’s rear rooms, but the trench has partly filled with an unknown, viscous fluid.

Once it’s clear to Zo! that there are multiple ways that the Starfinders might enter the temple and launch a rescue—of course there’s no question that the Starfinders are rescuing whoever’s inside, because that’s just too good a narrative to pass up—he signals Wazasha and creates a poll. The ghast lets the Starfinders know that the audience is voting on what they should do next, and the pulls up a holographic display from her wrist computer to show the votes as they’re cast.

This allows the team to discuss the options on how they will handle it for themselves, meanwhile keeping an eye on the poll.

Will allow for some roleplay here for the team to decide on where to go and then tomorrow will post the poll result on what the audience wants the team to go. Once more, apologies for the confussion!

The crowd is loving the interviews and it clear from the infosphere comments that there might be some more proposals for the 2 showy starfinders. Once the booth interviews are done the team moves on and shortly arrive at the dwarven camp. Upon entering it is clear something is amis, dwarves are screaming, one of them runs up to Ylga and starts to speak quickly in dwarven, shock can be seen on the dwarven womans face as she turns to the group. "Something happened when the orcs caused the rumbeling, we have someone lost in our temple... I have to leave you be for now and see what I can do to rescue him!"

Liberty's Edge

As the team makes their way to the encampment Pytho pulls up some old forgotten lore from Golarion, how it went awol as a planet and the history of the dwarven sky citadels. This is real old stuff.

During the travel the team halts and this time Lynn and Rora are taken into the booth and Wazasha starts to interview them, asking questions on their adventures, exploits, skill set etc

Liberty's Edge

The dwarves, and that is definatly what they are look in mild confussion at the discussion in regards of Golarion only till their leader speaks up after giving a shrug "But we are right here in Golarian, and we are making our way back to the surface..." Turning her head to her companions she talks for a few minutes in what seems a heated discussion before turning back to the group. "If you want, we can accompany you to our encampment?"

Rora's posing is well recorded by the camera crew with comments flying over the Infosphere!

Liberty's Edge

The female dwarf regards the team silently as they speak to each other, once in a while about to interrupt but seemingly patiently awaiting things. Turning to Pytho and Kemple she smiles for a moment “We have always lived below ground, but a generation ago my ancestors answered Torag’s summons—a tremor that called on our people to seek what lies above in the Quest for Sky. There we shall do our god’s will on Golarion’s surface.” looking to her companions for a moment before continuing “Yes, there have always been tremors. They have just become stronger of late. Sometimes cave ceilings collapse, burying bystanders but opening up new passages.” pointing to her travel companions “The Marbleheart clan is large, but we split into smaller groups to seek the surface more than a century ago, from a time before my memories. I now lead a band of 43 dwarves, though we are down to 29 after the orcs and earthquakes returned.”

The camera crew regards Pytho for a moment before focussing back on the dwarves, clearly ignoring the android. Those checking the infosphere can see the following.

#LEE! new race discoverd! what will they name them?! #LEE!

#LEE! The droid is becomming a bit to bossy... maybe he needs to pick a fight with the goblins instead of hiding?! #LEE!

#LEE! putting money down on the Haan picking a fight, warmongering creature! #LEE!

Liberty's Edge

The dwarf looks at Grinds with a bit of fear in her eyes due tot he being and size of him and mutters in common “critical error” She is regards Lynn as well and mutters in common “sequence initiated.” She is about to approach Kemple as Pytho speaks up Aklo and she turns to him with full interest and answers him in Aklo "Pytho-7, interesting name, I am called Ylga Tulgarst, daughter of Ulfrodi, who are you and have you caused the discomfort of this earth?"

As the undead film crew make their way around the meeting some of the dwarves can be seen raising crossbows at them to ensure the ghastly creatures stay awy from them.

Liberty's Edge

When everyone is standing and admiring the flowers Rora all of a sudden notices something unusual, from the caverns a group of short creatures approach the team. Wazasha setups the the camera crew as they start to film the exchange between the new arrivals and the Starfinder team. From the group a short stocky woman steps forward and looks at everyone in confussion before speaking up.

Dwarven:
Strangers... Welcome, I am Ylga Tulgarst, daughter of Ulfrodi, who are you and have you caused the discomfort of this earth?

Liberty's Edge

Rora was about to lose her balance till the Haan managed to catch her and pull her up. While the other starfinders climb up the filming crew can be seen filming the whole ordeal, zooming in on Rora as she nearly falls. Once the Starfinders are on the top the camera crew can be seen shooting grapplers and cable lines and make it up easily and without any issues. Kemple is dragging a nice corpse with him till one of the servants takes the corpse of the Young Spicodranth from him and transports it back to the entrance of Salvation's End.

The region beyond is a large cavern that sparkles with phosphorescent fungi whose caps span as much as 10 feet in diameter. The goblins’ explosion from below has buckled the cavern floor here, leaving a concentric impression in the ground where there appears to have just been unaffected stone before. These buckled rings are about 1 foot high

Liberty's Edge

Awesome on catching up on what was going to happen Pytho, hats off!

Wazasha continues the interview with Pytho-7 and some of the film crew eye the remains of the goblins and the blood on the android with veiled interest, one of them can be seen to lick his lips as if to being able to taste the blood. Once the interview is done the booth is slowly being dismantled and allows the starfinders to move on. The team comes up on wreckage that they will need to climb up [DC 10 climb check].

for those keeping an eye on the infosphere and the twitter feed...

#LEE! Not sure what to make of Pytho, he seems to be useless to the team! #LEE!

#LEE! Looking for an electrician... seems like I found my new handy man! #LEE!

#LEE! Does anyone have more info from Rora, she is hot, asking for a friend! #LEE!

Liberty's Edge

With Grinds throw the last goblin dies with a knife in his left eye, one of the camera crew can be seen licking his lips at the sight of the carnage. With the area slowly settling in a relative calm Wazasha can be seen to motion to some of the other crew who are setting up a booth of some sorts. Wazasha looks at the team and then motions to Pytho-7 to take place in the booth on one of the chairs. She then turns to the rest of the starfinders and gives them a charming smile. "Seeing as we have a moment respite, we will use this to give some more info to our viewers about who you are, we will start with Pytho-7"

2 people marked this as a favorite.

As Verus takes a swing at the creature it seems the goblin sidesteps him and seems to give him the finger, as it is mocking Verus it is Rora's shot that takes away the grin as the goblin falls over on the floor, dead. Kemple her shot seems to go wide as she misses the creature

#LEE! So far Dusty seems to be striking well followed by the ever flamboyant Rora, who will win the deathcount! #LEE!

Grinds his attack strikes the creature well as blood spurts from the cut, covering Grinds face with a good amount of it before it gets hit in the chest by the magic Missiles from Lynn and taking it down.

#LEE! Oh my! the sheer amount of damage from these starfinders! seems like Lynn is stealing the show, we might have to start a new show just for her.. Dating with Lynn! #LEE!

The rant Pytho is giving the camera crew seems to fall on deaf ears, if not they follow him even closer to see where he is going.

#LEE! what will the angry droid do? he seems like to suffer from a nervous breakdown, is that a good thing for a Starfinder? #LEE!

Grinds makes short work of the goblin in front of him as it lets go of a strangled cry and falls over in a heap of green goblin flesh. Meanwhile the other goblins and the weird creature seem to take their actions as well. One of the goblins takes a shot at Verus since he is standing in the open while one of the other ones moves and takes a shot at grinds and both shots seem to miss the 2 starfinders

#LEE! Shots fired by some sort of green creature... don't seem to pose a... Oh wow! 1 of them got smashed into the ground by the one called Dusty! #LEE!

Meanwhile the weird creature makes his way towards Grinds and takes a swing at the Haan, exposing himself as he does so to allow the Haan to make an attack on it. As it shows itself the one of the camera crew turns and puts the Haan and the creature in blinding light.

With Rora stepping into the open and making alot of noise, the light, camera and action effects shown as well seem to have little to no effect on the Goblins as they turn and take a quick shot at her before seeming running into cover. Rora can see in the back of the cavern something moving.

The film crew ignore the comments and one of them goes as far to take a heroic pose from Rora and her companions as they call out to the goblins, they take a magnificent video as Rora gets hit by the laser in the shoulder, doing a close up on her face to register the hit.

Those tracking the infosphere will see #LEE! We have action, heroic pose, goblins not impressed.. #LEE! taking bets the Ysoki will go down!

As Rora looks around the corner she can see some shadows moving up ahead and the sound of footsteps as well... it seems like, yeah upon listening closer she can hear goblins up ahead. Meanwhile, due to the darkness the camera crew turns on the lights of the camera's some shining up ahead and some right into the faces of the starfinders. So far the team has been unnoticed.

Wazasha regarded Kemple for a moment and then shrugged. "Don't blame me if the audience thinks you are a male Ysoki!" with that said she turns her head and regards the rest and makes sure that all of the crew is taking in the actions of the starfinders, just as she wants to say something a loud explosion can be heard down the tunnel and a cloud of dust can be seen around the corner of the tunnel. Wazasha turns and motions to the crew in hopes of taking in their reactions and getting a glimpse of how a well trained team of starfinders would respond to explosions and dangers like a true M. Bay action movie!

gonna put down a small disclaimer

there are some moments in this scenario that allow people to be honest, put ppl in a bad spotlight etc, this can come from me as a GM (with certain questions to players) this is all done in the humor of the scenario and I don't mean to insult anyone as a person. If, and I hope not, I take it a bit to far, tell me and I will adjust!

enjoy some banter with each other during this scenario as it will allow you gaining some extra things in the end.

With the team slowly making their way down the corridors and the crew filming their every steps and asking questions as they go, showing the quirks from all the starfinders in full display, thos keeping track of the infosphere and the #LEE! tag will see some notes flashing "#LEE: Pytho seems like a regular android, boring and dull, does know his stuff tho!" "#LEE! Is rora single! asking for an adventorous friend!" "#LEE! Dusty seems to be a doomsayer! gotta keep my eye on him!" and finally "#LEE! Kemple seems scared, should his parents have let him go?!" as the team moves farther down their chosen tunnel, they also find a midden containing both refuse and excrement.

Engineering (DC 10):
YTou determine that the trash consists largely of low-value technological scraps that might have been attached to something more valuable.

Life Science (DC10):
You recognize the ample excrement as having come from goblins.

Life Science (DC 15):
You recognize that some omnivorous creature about the size of a vesk was the source of another pile.

Survival (DC 14):
You estimate that several creatures visited this midden within the past hour, and that PC can confidently follow the goblin tracks further down the tunnels.

As the starfinders explore Wazasha is up in the face of Kemple, asking him what he has found, what is going on and if he thinks there is any danger up ahead. All the others are in spotlights as well and it seems that Wazasha is keeping an eye on any of the starfinders to record them doing anything out of the ordinary, standing out, anything for some good ol' fashion live tv!

With all said and done the team learns from the mechanics that they will have to go down the hallway to see where the previous team got. As they make their way down Wazasha and some of the film crew start to ask the starfinder questions about how dangerous it is, what they have seen so far and what kind of monsters they have seen and if they have been on Salvation's End before.

As the team makes their way down they find broken and incomplete robots and drones of unknown design at irregular intervals along the worn steel hallways. Almost every light fixture is broken or malfunctioning, making the 15-foot-tall tunnels dark but for the occasional, haunting flicker of light from the distance. In the few places where it seems signage once hung, someone has purposefully defaced or removed the analog signs and torn out any digital displays.

Engineering/Computers DC 12:
You ascertain that the technological elements in these tunnels seem to be roughly comparable to Pact Worlds’ technology but are of a design never before documented.

Physical Science (DC 16):
You assess the moon’s geology from the places where the tunnels are damaged and the surrounding rocky matrix is visible; the rock appears to be natural, but there are signs of warping and buckling as though the moon has periodically experienced heavy forces such as strong gravitational forces or the large-scale movement of something large toward the moon’s core.

with everyone ready and geared up everyone is being ushered into the shuttle, a 15min trip with the shuttle takes them down to Salvation's End. Once there they are all gathered and introduced to a ghastly camera crew. It is clear they are all undead and they start to film the starfinders as they disembark. Wazasha starts a live introduction of the starfinders and gives little bit of information about them live on air. Starfinders interested in following the show along can do so and will notice that there is a hashtag going about the show called #LEE!

While disembarking a group of society mechanics can be seen working and seem to be working hard on what seems to be repairs, some look up and wave at the new team that just set foot on the rock and point to the camera crew as well in amusement, wondering what is going on.

Thanks guys, it's a rough time for me considering the condition of my dad and me leaving the country in a few days. In regards of that, my posting will be less for a few days tuesday (last minute arrangements on wednesday before flying out on thursday and driving down to cork from dublin on friday). I should, hopefully, be posting again on saturday.

Pytho manages to get some of the general information available about Salvation's End but it is all limited to the occasional mention of goblin life form and the fact that they seemed to have taken over the area. Nothing stands out of the ordinary for him. When he tries to slink into the shadows the camera's seem to focus on him and putting him in the spotlight for the time being as he is being introduced to the viewers as Pytho-7, hacker and society member before they move back towards lynn and as she speaks to Wazasha who answers her "You will be taken to the surface by our transport together with the film crew..." She seemed to say more but Zo! cuts her off to indicate it is time to go. When the Starfinders are preparing to board the shuttle together with Wazasha Lynn, Rora, Grinds, and Verus are being invited into a seperate room by Zo!.

Sponsorship (Lynn, Rora, Grinds, Verus):
Zo! takes you to offstage and into a special room where a vast arsenal of weaponry and armory is displayed. "Starfinders! Seeing as you have been helping me and you are now friends of mine, I have a deal you cannot ignore! I have for you, to use during this show the following..." He motiones to the weapons and armors to allow the starfinders to select up to 2 items that are being displayed.

One main sponsor is Nova Solutions LLC, a family-owned half-orc company that specializes in frontierready weaponry able to stop even the toughest alien life form in its tracks. It’s sent in several new flame, laser, and plasma weapons from its new Scorched Earth product line, advertised with the motto “Why end a fight when you can end a planet?”

The other main sponsor is Clashwear, the Verces-based producer of comfortably armored clothing that’s on the bleeding edge of Pact Worlds fashion. The high-end stationwear sent covers everything from the stylishly casual to the glamorously eccentric, all created by the wildly popular shirren designer Neshkuay I with the tagline “Dressed to Express.”

For the rest there is some other gear available by less noteworthy sponsors, Basic iridishell, business stationwear, Ember flame doshko, ifrit-class flamethrower, red star plasma kukri, static arc pistol

Luwazi and Zo! watches the pathfinders and when questions are being asked Zo! motions to a female ghast standing next to him "This is Wazasha Kevir, she is the associate procedure and she will accompany you, and she will supervise the film crew and pace the event!" Letting the ghast take over she turns to Kemple as she puts her hands up and frames his face in between, moves around a bit before speaking up "You will be more then fine for this! I am sure that everything done will be caught on camera and will be shown to the audience, be yourself!" answering kemple's second question with a mere wave of her hand, dismissing his concern. "There will be a film crew, and enough to ensure all the action will be captured on tape, and no, you don't need to protect them..."

Zo! turns to Rora for a moment and flashes a grin to her "Rora, baby! how is that bounty hunting gig going for you!" The other starfinders notice on the different screens present that Rora is being introduced to the crowd as Aurora Vim, Savior of Tasch, apprehender of criminals! Luwazi answers Rora's question “I hired a team to perform a surface survey, and it was they who discovered a hatch that led much deeper into its interior. We also know that a tribe of goblins calling themselves the Exhaust Drinkers live on the surface, and we’ve clashed with them in the past. Most recently, we undertook a concerted effort to clear the tribe out from our landing facility on the moon’s surface. The moon’s gravity will feel about normal, but we’ve detected that the gravity is artificially maintained and even seems to reorient itself in some areas.”

Lynn on the other hand is being zoomed in, and a little camera seems to float around her and take in all her features, close-ups happen and when she moves over to Luwazi a moment is being captured as the crowd falls silent when the question is being asked with a close up from Luwazi and Zo! at the same time, this is capturing history at it's finest and it is captivating the audience as they wait for the answer “The Society’s obligation involves the crew tagging along for just one big discovery.” Zo! looks to her with pleading eyes, and she continues. “But we could renegotiate that if—if—it’s to the Society’s advantage.”
