Power of Friendship
Datum: 16th of February 2015.
As the Explorers occupied the War-room, to decide what they will do with the system, in terms of naming it, the argument over names was being fueled by fine Amasec
The meeting was interrupted by a petty officer Scernavius Jern, officer in charge of the Order Squads, among the voidsmen. (You have not heard of Order Squads to this day)
He is accompanied by a Single purpose servoskull, which looks to be writing down everything. As the silence fell in the war room upon such intrusion he looked at you with concerned eyes.
" I apologize Lords. They told me it was alright to see you…-" he said in a thin voice, trying to dull down his intrusion.
" Well WHO told you that curse him?!" -growled the Astropath Flayl
And as he asked the question the devil has shown his gaze behind the door frame, waiting for the perfectly opportune moment to come in.
" I did." – said La Roix " Before you decide to shoot him Duncan, do hear him out. Oh, don’t think I’ve forgotten." he said with a wry smile looking straight into Duncan, whom’s fingers were slipping down to his gun again.
" Well come on now darling, speak up." – he said to the officer, to which Jern stiffened up and continued: “I speak in the name of the better situated voidsmen upon The Satyricon, of those who are interested in displaying finer arts, the scrimshaws, performers and craftsmen. Since the installation of the Melodium, many have expressed wishes to organize plays and shows, maybe even earn a few gelt selling their crafts to the Lords.” -he says in a well practiced speech, evaluating your reactions “I was elected to give this message my lords. Forgive my interruption.”
Ahh well, we will overlook this small intrusion but please do behave next time and go through official channels there is no need to barge in like this, we will gladly listen to what our appreciated crew has to say,
I am glad to see that voidsman are expressing the will to improve them selfs and influence the people around them, I as a captain and I do believe that I speak in the name of all of the officers will do everything in my power to make such possibility come to life, we will take appropriate actions so everyone will be able to participate in events and skills they want.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention keep up the good work
Jern took a small bow, turned on his heel, and walked out of the War-room.
While LaRoix lingered an instant longer, saluting to the Lords, while looking at the Lord Commander, saying: " I wish for a private audience later my Lord, if it be your wish."
As they leave the room
“You should be careful about the artists, it is alright to have them, as long as their work is approved by the imperium, you don’t want to visit Port Wonder again, right boss?”
“If you all agree I’ll put someone to watch them and report back”
Yes La Roix, we have a few things to discuss, but first things first, step inside I wish to see the dispute between you and Duncan resolved, that day was very strange for us all * look across the room at everyone * disputes and conflicts erupted between almost everyone, like something pushed us towards it wishing our downfall and I as a Captain will not allow it I am responsible for everything aboard this vessel, La Roix I understand your concern for me and I am grateful for having such a friend in you, but Duncan is an Officer on this ship and you have to show him bound respect he is your fellow “Neighbour” you both come from the same city for God sake, and Duncan I understand that you have been under immense pressure lately and I appreciate everything you are doing, but please don’t shot at people, if you are having any kind of troubles please come to me or do as I did, demand a duel, not to the death of course it doesn’t have to be bloody at all, a fist fight with gloves on or arm wrestling or whatever as long as it doesn’t have serious consequences, and trust me it really sets the steam off and bonds you with that person, please understand that all of you look into everybody in the room(officers and La Roix) are very valuable to me, and I won’t tolerate any kind of conflict between you because I will take that as my personal failure.
stand up arms spread
Let there be no more disputes between us, for we all are in this together, United we stand!

(That’s when everyone stands in a circle and put their hand on a pile) :)
During your speech, there was a gentle chuckle coming from Flayl. Durring your orration, when you were looking AT the rest of the officers, you could have noticed Echos blank expression while Flayl was oozing some liquids from his psyhood and had his face twisted in a frown while chuckling, where Lien was biting her lip hard not to combust into cacophonous laughter.
The Navigators stood silent, as Duncan tried to blend into his chair.
LaRoix ran towards the war table trying to put his hand on top of Aherons, nothing was to stand in his way, as he ran and leaned his full body weight on the heavy wooden chair that was occupied by Duncan. Despite of its weight, the chair began to tip, spilling Duncan out of his seat, as LaRoix ever so gently lowered his hand on yours, feeling the warmth of your palm with his thumb enjoying every moment of it.
He said before Duncan reacted of the floor:
“Oh my Captain, you have a magical way with words. I could listen to you all day. Go team!”
After the scene unable to contain my laughter I burst out
“I’m sure you meant for God Emperors sake but aye boss we should work together for the good of the Empire and the house of Tiberius”
As I peel of the wall stand strait and salute, I say:
“My abilities are in the service of the house Tiberius and anyone who wishes harm upon it will be killed on the spot”
“As for the conflicts all you can do is hope and pray that it doesn’t end up like the conflict with Vorian Blade.”
Echo turned off his cognitive cogitator, waiting for the blathering to be over. As his Lord Captain awaited for the hands to join, his mechandrite jittered a bit but was held back by Echo, out of shame for almost joining the ridiculous spectacle.
Instead he went over to help Duncan up, calming him down, not to try to shoot the pompous jackass that was LaRoix again.
The awkward silence set in the room, Echo suggested: “Can I get you all to vote on banning DUELING on this vessel, along with all other physical confrontation? Please state your votes, I vote AYE. I would like to elaborate that there should be a court to deal with people’s misunderstandings. Such a jury should help both parties realize how they have wronged each other and how they can make up for it, without any violence that costs us blood, time, bullets, body parts and other precious resources!”
“I agree with Lien about watching the artists. Art is a very nice thing but it must be scrutinized for everybody’s safety.”
Duncan gave it his best to put on a wry smile and said: “I apologize for my rush and stupid reaction. I will make it up for it.” Giving a bone-cracking pat on the back to Aheron and Laroix, turning and leaving the room. “I will be in my quarters and on the officers channel, if you need me. I feel shaky and need to rest.” as he was leaving he turned and said: “…oh and Aye on banning duels.”
The Warroom door closed.
