We've got a ship.

It'll be passing by below us soon; seems it just departed from the city recently, and fortunately for us, it seems we have gone unnoticed for now.

We're still a bit too close to the city to do anything, so for now we'll keep a good distance from it--we'll remain above to improve our likelihood of being unnoticed. I want one boatswain--or anyone who has a good knowledge of airships to go up to the crows nest with a telescope and see what more they can tell us of the particular airship our target has. Any information you can give us would be good--and take a stopwatch with you too, to see how long it takes it to get from where it is now, to below us, so we can get a fair estimation of its speed.

Alfred, Hiyori, Pip and Kambei--stand by your guns, but no shooting until you get orders from me, Hiruma, or Hijikata, or the Captain. I'm sure you know, but just in case we just want to bring it down with as little damage as possible--the more damage, the bigger the likelihood of goods being destroyed which would be a waste of our efforts.

Reno, Noriaki, and Jotaro, Kensei--like the gunners, get your planes ready, but don't take off until you get orders. I would suggest, if you have space, taking one other person with you to handle some weaponry. When you do take off, remember to stay above the battlefield; we don't want you caught in the fray of cannons.

We have one passenger one board, sorry that I do not know your name, but you ought to stay below deck. If someone could volunteer to keep her safe, I'd appreciate it. Everyone should have a job--whether it is the one you signed up for--or simply helping someone else to do their's.

Now let's do what we do best.

((ooc: OKAY GUYS. I managed to nab Ann, and so the way this is going down is more or less the same way it went during the first raid. For those of you who were here the first time you'll know what I mean, and so if you can help the newer folk I'd really appreciate it.

For those of you who weren't around before, the actual tracking and airfight shall happen over journals. Sounds a little weird, but it worked well before. I tried to assign as many jobs as possible, but as Winry said, everyone is free--and encouraged to help in any way they can. Post about your discoveries, post about your actions, and most of all talk to one another. Since this is a team effort, that's what is most important :>

The ship will most likely go down somewhere late Sunday/Monday and there will be a log for the actual boarding and pillaging. If you are still confused, just wait a bit to see examples, or IM me at RingCampana. I'll also be in the chat. Or you can just drop me an ooc note here, too xD ))

Gotcha, Winry.
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ sigh duties ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 04:11 am (UTC)
Thank you, Shinji.

Actually, if you could, could you go help out our helmsman? They're still relatively new, and I'm a little wary of their abilities to keep up in a fight.

((ooc: lol. the imaginary one that has been here. Let's name him Bert :>))

Yeah, no prob. I'll be right up there.

Appreciated.

(ooc: a beautiful name, for a beautiful man. that's why he's never around. people are instinctively driven to jump him )

Vouldn't her own qvarters be safest?

But if she vants company...she iz alvays velkome in de infeermary. At de least vould be safe enough, she iz velcome dere.
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ curious ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 08:02 pm (UTC)
I'd like someone to be with her, whether or not she prefers the company. Honestly, I'm surprised we take passengers, considering how dangerous it can be on here, but money is money.

So you don't mind my sending word to her, to go to you?
Mamma Gkika: Mamma Gkika has arrivedjaegermamma on January 24th, 2009 08:33 pm (UTC)
[*sigh* just assume that accent = voice post]
Mmm, yez, und money is vhat ve seems to be havink de trouble vit.

No, go ahead. I ken't promise hyu she vill be happy in de infeermary, but at least she vill be safe.
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ happy ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 08:37 pm (UTC)
heehee, tis okay. xD I'm waiting for the day I slip up on Aeris, lol
That's what matters most of all! I haven't really met her, but I did talk to her once ages ago. From what I remember she seemed like an understanding person, so I don't think she'll give you too much trouble.

Let me do a quick check so I can get her name and information for you.

Heh, indeed. Also: Bert? XD
Hyu tink if she understandink enuff she might effen lend a hand?

Infermation vould be goot.

Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ inventing ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
Someone has to be there unless the ship steers itself. Why not a sexy man named Bert?
It's possible. According to the records she's been here since September which...is a little unusual, for a passenger. I'm sure she must have picked up some things here and there, it'd be good to ask her.

Aside from that her name is Yasako; now that I'm looking at it I'm remembering the conversation we had about how similar her nickname was to the Captains. They share the first same name. She's also fifteen.
Mamma Gkika: How hyu feel now?jaegermamma on January 24th, 2009 10:49 pm (UTC)
Who ever heard of a sexy man named *Bert*?
Yasako. Dot vun's en easy enuff name.

The totally fearsome and sexalicious Bert.

Yes ma'am.

Does it look like a good one?
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ smile ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
Bigger than the last one we pursued, and we got a pretty decent haul from them!

Hopefully one of the boatswains can tell us more, though. If one of them doesn't go up to the nest, I'll have to go myself.
Anko Mitarashi: plot plot plotthesnakecharm on January 24th, 2009 08:31 pm (UTC)
Oh good.

I can think of a reason or two people might be avoiding the crow's nest.
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ whatever ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 08:33 pm (UTC)
Yea. Hopefully this'll start speeding up the payoff for all those debts.

Urgh. Let's not go there. But honestly, that place has been cleaned enough times!
Anko Mitarashi: AM I NOT ADORABLE?thesnakecharm on January 24th, 2009 08:43 pm (UTC)
Tch, hopefully. Sucks having to be the errand-ship of all Vohemar, yeah?

Yeah, but it's not so much the uh, physical left-overs that are bothersome, if you know what I mean.
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ exasperated ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 08:54 pm (UTC)
Tell me about it. We were probably the most feared for a while, being the only ship to ever escape the Victoria. At least the only publicly known ship to escape the Victoria.

Well, that's true. In all honesty though, this is a pirate ship. By that logic I'm not sure any place on the ship is entirely safe.
Anko Mitarashi: don't you wish your ninja was hot like mthesnakecharm on January 24th, 2009 08:58 pm (UTC)
At least we've got that still going for us--but I think more people are putting it down to luck rather than any kind of skill.

True, but at least most of us are a little more discrete about things.

...

Uh, most of the time.

An assumption we will have to remedy.

Haha. Well discretion never seemed the forte of either of the participants. Particularly Tira.
Anko Mitarashi: Yes it's a snake. Thanks for noticing.thesnakecharm on January 24th, 2009 09:21 pm (UTC)
Re: [ Filtered to Winry | Unhackable ]
It'll be good to be thought of as dangerous again, won't it?

Yeah, no, not one of their strong suites. Threatening to kill people, sure. At least I try, right?
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ exasperated ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 10:02 pm (UTC)

Certainly better than whatever we must have now.

Well I don't mind the lack of subtlety so much. Maxim still seems like a good fellow in my book, but yes--the effort is appreciated.
thatdamnclownthatdamnclown on January 24th, 2009 09:40 pm (UTC)
Oh, Miss Winry, I've some experience with makes and models of airships. I could examine the target, if you'd like.
Winry Rockbell [AU]: [ fuck yes lesbians! ]omgwtfwrench on January 24th, 2009 09:47 pm (UTC)
That'd be most helpful. Whatever you can find out, report immediately to me, the Captain, and our strategists.
