"Let's you and me take a walk, Mr. Sorran. You have something on board your ship that is of interest to me and the people I associate with."

They were headed deeper into the recesses in the station, the lights becoming dimmer and less consistent as they began making their way down stairs

Continuity error! Shouldn't they be headed to the ship?

I took it as, he has something on the ship, but was going to see the associates first.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

He's got something on his ship that is of interest to her and the people she associates with. Even though you could say there are two subjects being mentioned, the one with priority is the first one mentioned. As well, it calls back to Kenotai's reference to whatever magic macguffin lies in wait within his suitcase. The clear focal point is the suitcase and whatever lurks within. Girly-face mentioning that she works with other people is merely added detail and potential foreshadowing. And since I was the one who wrote it, I can confirm the author's intent beyond a shadow of a doubt.

Plus, there was no mention of actually going to SEE associates and their presence on the station (to me) seems a little silly. Being able to play every character affords us the opportunity of using much larger set pieces. The idea of having the evil organization hanging out at the bottom of this station is too easy. My thoughts.

I strongly dislike the last post due to what I see as a continuity problem, but it is what it is. If you want to change it, go for it. Otherwise you're up to bat, Keno.

Eh, what can I say. I'm a sucker for some crime cliches. I mean, you're all welcome to change it as you please, as that's what we do, heh. They could all by pieces to something bigger.

 I am going to stick by my post since knowing the full intentions of your guys posts makes it less mystery. Plus I sort of though it was a, pick up as you interpret it going.

Fire away kenotai.

Oh. The whole "mystery" thing is more a reference to me not telling you guys what the rule set was.

Neo and I wrote the story last fall.

eropS seriously thought the Genre was mystery, and not that the story was a mystery in the not genre sense?

Sorry, I've had a busy week. :\ You guys can either skip me, or I can try to do it tonight.

Not to sound rude, even though it will come across that way anyway, but could we just skip Ovi so this can keep going?

Yeah! I thought of a fun post in the car.

Just wondering... do we want to play this game where every post is something out of left field? Or would you rather play it measured and level-headed?
