OOC: That's alright. That's the GM's job! And I'm always ready to help
idle Player Characters with my award winning patent pending PC
Motivation Process (known to cause piles in the State of California).

Captain Neeson seems considerably relieved. She orders a doubling of
the watch, and Jacek orders his men to create a tight parameter around
the ship. "Not so much as a squirrel must get to this ship without us
knowing about it," the full-conversion Borg growls. The dwarf
contingent follows suit, and Oz's sergeant makes sure the New Camelot
soldiers are on full alert.

In the distance, the weapons' fire ceases, to be replaced by the
semi-random sonic hum of the ley lines and the unseen, but still very
near nexus. It is an eerie semi-silence, with only the hushed whispers
to break it.

It's perhaps fifteen minutes after Oz, Jacek and the ex-bandits return
that one of the crew rushes to Oz and Captain Neeson. "Sirs," he says,
saluting, "we've spotted something up on the hillside. It looks like,
well, it looks like someone is waving a white flag."
