When the crew of the Fires of Brooklyn
is sent out into Helium City to look for Theo, Captain Tobais comes up with the idea to steal the understaffed Imperial warship. More crew will be needed, so recruiting is started. It turns out that a very large percentage of the recruits are familiar with Imperial frigates and fit into the run of Imperial Uniforms that have been turning up secondhand.
The theft of the Fires of Brooklyn
is carried off with very few casualties, and the Fires
takes off under the command of Maximillian Percival Flynn, with the aid of Theophilus Harcourt-Rhodes. The Crimson Lady
, with Orson Fractus in command, tows the giant Fires
, while the boiler system on the Fires
runs at a capacity controllable by the reduced crew. As usual, Mister Winters has command of the now all black Butterfly
ships flying Imperial colors threaten to catch up to the little fleet as it approaches High Tourtuga. And the nervous pirates of the city launch their own ships toward the captured Imperial vessel. After some frantic signaling, the fleet doesn't open fire - though the Fires
has a fire in its understaffed engine room.
The fleet docks, with damage to the dock from the Fires
Rotating shore leave with recruiting, drinking and misadventure takes place. All return to the fleet.
The mysterious locked room on the Fires
is opened. It contains an Aetheric Condenser Cannon, a tabletop "Faraday's cage", a mysterious electrical box, five figures, that Lily and Xom determine are Totems (and set up the beginnings of a shrine for them), and a large bomb, with according to the manual, can destroy electrical equipment, with only minor explosive damage.Previous sessionNext session
