As soon as Khrelan saw the second shot from the ship hit something that looked like a forcefield and hit the landa, he dropped into a prone position, trying to avoid the worst of a blast.

And the blast came quite spectacularly, as something inside the ork Landa gave way and it exploded. Quite a bit of flaming debris went overhead, but the worst of it was the shockwave. It threatened to pick him up and flip him like a pancake, but fortunately it didn't happen. Some of the trees around him were not so fortunate, being either entirely uprooted or split in half.

He surveyed the field after the spectacle. Large debris thrown around. Lots of cover. Landa and its entire team of orks and grots gone. But the orks at the structure seemed to be in a tizzy now, and would soon come out from the walls to battle whatever had hit them this hard.

He did what he could do from where he was: from his prone position he aimed down his sights at the single exposed ork among the grots. Remembering the pointers given by Ailuin, he aimed for the head.

Khrelan stopped breathing and gently squeezed the trigger just right. His sniper rifle let off a shot that sounded more like a mix of a cough and a clank, as the round sped off the muzzle. He hoped the sound would be masked by all the hubbub.

The projectile hit the Ork right on the forehead, splattering his brain on the metal wall behind it. If the round went through the wall or got embedded in it, Khrelan did not know. The ork slumped backwards and slid off the wall to the ground, in plain view of the grots that were around him.

Khrelan was in his cabin, when the call came. He had set his pad to buzz him awake if such a summons was made. And the damn thing worked, waking him up right in the middle of a very weird dream. The last he remembered of it as he wiped the bleary eyed look from his face was a planet, with part of its surface blown apart and flung into space, exposing various layers of the matle and core.

He quickly discarded his civilian clothes and got into his armor undersuit. He then made a beeline to his locker in the armory, tough he had to jump over what seemed like thada's clothes strewn on the floor. He suited up, donning each armor piece in sequence. For last, he put on his helmet, which went through a seal test.

He then fetched his weapons, attaching them to their respectives maglocks. His sinper rifle on the back, his pistol at the side of his hip. Both weapons already had a clip inside. He then took out 4 extra clips for each weapon and attached them to their places.

Checking that he had everything he intended to take with him, he closed and locked his locker and walked out of the armory, heading to the hangar bay.

Khrelan got up from the chair and started doing stretching exercises. The ammount of crackling and popping that came from his joints was something fierce.

He looked around to see if Thada was still around. Didn't see him. Checked to see where Suu-suu was, so as not to have any surprises by bumping into the beast. Which seemed to be... relaxing? napping? out of the pool.

Khrelan didn't know how long it would take for Urseas's hunting beast to get used to the rest of the team, including himself, so he decided to play cautious.

Moving nearer the pool he greeted Freya with a short "Ta", bringing a fist toward his chest. "Hello Freya." He didn´t know how greet a Kurg, so he decided on "Hello Ursea. I hope that little outburst from Thada won't make you feel unwelcome here."

"Have a"

He turned around and walked out of the room, heading towards his cabin. Perhaps he could fetch his sniper rifle and practice in the firing range.

He had't been able to rest like this for well over... years? A decade? Yeah, a decade seems more likely. It was almost always from one deployment to another. From one job, to the next job.

No holidays. No vacations. No time dedicated only to himself, louging around a pool, getting some well deserved R & R.

He knew, or rather guessed, that this was likely just the calm before the storm, that this "moment" wouldn't last long, so he took th opportunity to just laze around and do ... absolutely ... jack excrement.

He felt Freya come through and get in the pool, asking Ursea how was she doing.

He opened an eyelid, just the minimum ammount possible so he could see what was going on.

So, that's what a Kaveni female looks like in a ... bathing suit? thought Khrelan.

And then:

“Hey!” Thada yelled as he walked past towards the showers, once again shirtless. ”Your paintrain better be housebroken! I don’t want to see those drains clogged up with toxic bug excrement!”

Buzzkill. Way to kill the vibe.

I've no idea what i should get as skill/knowledge. Aside from where to shoot, my character wouldn't have much use of all the knowledge Neal is looking for. Khrelan isn't in a position of command at all.

So, I'm in a "wait and see" kind of situation right now. Maybe more options will show up later.

Khrelan left the meeting room and the arguments behind. He absent mindedly looked at his pad to try and read the interesting bits of information about the orks. While doing this he went to his cabin. There, he locked the datapad in a safe and changed clothes into something akin to a "summer at the beach", t-shirt and long shorts. He then headed to the pool room to perhaps unwind and relax. He stopped at the door when he noticed that Ursea AND Suu-suu were sawimming around in the pool, arguing with himself if he should just walk in or perhaps back away, slowly so as not to draw too much attention.

"Ah, what the heck." he thought. "Don't intend to be the antisocial type".

He nonchalantly walked into the pool room and sat down in a... what he thought was a "lawn chair" at the corner, opposite to where Ursea was swimming. "Huh, so that's how a female Kurg looks in a swimsuit?" mused Khrelan to himself.

If anything happened he'd just break out his "smile".

Spoiler for smile:

I did too, I thought it was really good, but I made a mistake and thought Zephirus had been talking to Osiris, and I hadn't realized he had dismissed us and given us all the info already. So Neal's response made no sense.
I knew we were dismissed, but I somehow also got the impression that he was talking to Osiris.

Remember to edit your response Rin, I made a quick change.
Hmm...I like the previous version more than the ammended version.

As soon as the meeting ended, Khrelan picked up his datapad to make notes. He also downloaded what he could from what the ship's AI made avalable, to start studying where he could hurt orks the most. It would not do to shoot them and keep missing the important parts. Sometimes striking the enemy down decisively is the only way.

He also did notice the Vis's "provocation".

Douchebag. He thought. But forgot that the Vis was not the telepathic one.

He fiddled with his sidearm, but left it clipped at his hip.

"Excuse me, but is no one else seeing how utterly gently-carressed this is, or am I just the crazy one?"

"It is utterly gently-carressed up. " said Khrelan while looking at Thada. "But better to know that right now and up front than later."

He got up, intending to go back to his cabin to study the files.

yeah, an RP he would have to run. :P

He is an adult doing adult things I guess.

He hasn't been on steam in over 2 months it seems.
According to Steam, well, the client I have installed, he was online only 4 hours ago.

Though the last time he played a game was on 26th of December.

"An example for you all, say a group of orks is in the a transport vehicle, and its almost out of fuel. Its running on fumes, and an ork notices it and says something. However the bigger more alpha ork in the group disagrees and says it is full, he punches the smaller ork and threatens the ones who disagree. He is bigger and stronger so they believe him, and suddenly the transport acts as if the tank is full, its fuel efficiency multiplies exponentially, allowing them to finish their trip without pause."
Khrelan simply blinked. Something like this was... unheard of. At least in regards to what little he knew about the galaxy.

"Wait....what? So, let me get this straight. Their collective belief... bends reality? Does that work broken or jammed weaponry? Or can they pull ammo from empty pockets? Or...can a vehicle go faster simply because it's painted red?"

That simply would not make any sort of sense.

"And you say that this sort of 'damage to the laws of physics' can become permanent? That would be ... yeah, that would be very dangerous."

He scratched his head in disbelief. That was all so hard to accept...

"Can their collective belief break our weapons, or vehicles, or any sort of device we use?"

Well...that pretty much spells it. Red does go faster. And if we paint our stuff in red, it'll go faster too.

Osiris took off his headband as Khrelan was goin through a dream scene where he'd be repeatedly blown up while in the cockpit. The wave of abject horror and danger crashed over him and jolted him awake with a start, almost making him fall off his chair.

But it was as if that dreadful sensation of danger had followed him from his dream. It was as if the ship was something made out of paper, waiting to be crushed or torn apart, killing them all.

His claws extended and he raked  them on the table as he got up, leaving a nasty scratch on the flat surface.

He felt as if someone had shoved his conscious mind aside, making him act as an animal. His mind was trying to wrest control back, but at most he managed to stop himself from doing something really stupid at the meeting table. He just stood there, twitching and making angry faces, but never really lunging at anyone.

And then, just like that, Osiris put his headband back and the feeling simply disappeared. He slumped back on his chair trying to clear all of that crap from his head...

Spoiler for Shocked:

"But.." She said, obviously having some second thoughts while she asked the question. "How do we" She made a gesture towards all the different races besides the Ki'Jan. "Notice your 'Anti-Psionic' ability? We do not even have normal Psionics." 

"Adding to that, how do we fight against or resist whatever was that ..." said Khrelan to Osiris, " ...that you unleashed on us just now? I mean, if we're going to eventually go up against something like that during our mission, how do we keep ourselves from going into a rout?"

Khrelan didn't have much to say about the general discussion being made at the meeting room table. Meeting the last member of the team was indeed important but, aside from that, people were mainly picking at each other. He decided to keep to himself and go back to reading his electronic book.

The chapter he was currently reading was comprised mostly of corporate intrigue, no real action, which was taking its toll on his alertness. Khrelan started nodding at the table, until he colsed his eyes and unceremoniously fell asleep.

At first his dreams were an undecipherable fog, a misty landscape in a nondescript planet, where nothing of import really happened. It was just the mist rolling over the landscape. Not a creature in sight. An alien sun barely over the horizon, which in terran terms, meant it was just past daybreak.

Khrelan sat on a rock on top of a cliff, looking at a mostly grey sea.

Blasted planet, there's nothing here. No minerals, no resources, just this blasted mist rolling over the landscape. I'm tired of this.

But as soon as he got up, the cliff cracked with an ear splitting noise, sending Khrelan tumbling into the sea below.

He crashed through the surface of the water, but instead of sinking to the bottom, he just fell on top of a pilot seat inside a fighter. The "sea" outside of the ship slowly turned into the vastness of space, background stars gradually winking into existence. And then everything outside of the cockpit's window started exploding.

Grif excluded.

Tobbs and Mike.

I need you to either sacrifice one weapon proficiency, or one knowledge or skill.

Remember in the character rules I specified only two weapon proficiencies.

This will help specialize you guys a bit more.
I'll toss my knives overboard.
