Challenge #03229-H320: Prepared For Anything

They found a planet that was, at most, a level 1 to level 2 deathworld. It was a cooler planet still within its sun goldilocks zone, but barely. They'd never seen snow, or dealt with cold temperatures. But the humans enjoyed the exploration, seeing all the animals adapted to semi-mild, yet still arctic, conditions, the conifer like trees, and having the occasional snowball fight for laughs. -- Anon Guest

Tundra, taiga, arctic ice. Whilst technically a tolerable Deathworld, the crew of the survey vessel Explorer Fancy were largely wondering exactly who would find it tolerable. That is, until the Ships' Humans got out in it.

The alarming part was that they had pop-out adaptations for the climate pre-installed in their livesuits. They were zooming down the snow-covered hills on skis. Pelting each other with balls made out of snow. Making effigies out of pre-frozen precipitate. In brief, doing anything but their jobs.

If the Humans were relaxed enough to mess about, then it may yet bode well for the planet. Until someone yelled, "Bear!"

Sunday, Day 0, Odd Hours

Plague News: One new case, a local transmission. There's six total active cases, five of those are in hospital. The way things are going, the one new case is going to be hospitalised tomorrow. Australia's at 92% first vax, 86.6% fully vaxxed. Queensland's still in 2nd-last place at 86% first vax and 75.7% fully vaxxed.

I find it weird how Victoria is pushing to open up despite having over a thousand active cases. It's like they just don't care about

Challenge #03228-H319: So Sharp...

A human sets up a shop on board a particularly large station within Alliance space. Before too long, the person has a lot of other humans visiting their shop, especially chefs. What is their profession? Sharpening blades. And instead of using anything electronic, they have a large whetstone, a strop, and some pieces of material to test the sharpness of the blades. He's one of the best in his profession, though his alliance friends sometimes see all the blades, and get a

Challenge #03227-H318: Should Have Listened

Capturing any member of Pax Humanis is no small feat, but capturing a Pax Humanis leader and not knowing who they are is a mistake you won’t live long enough to regret

Pax Humanis don't form teams. They make packs. They don't plan to eliminate a large problem for the CRC. They hunt. They are, at their core, the Humans that all the stories warn you about. They are the very rare few

Challenge #03226-H317: Those Who Cut It

A new cooking school opens up that is considered one of the hardest schools of that type to be in. Where almost all classes were like competitions and the instructors were very strict. Even to become a student, one had to sign a waiver stating that they knew they could be dropped from the program at any moment if their scores in the classes got too low. Still, for those that graduated, they were considered among some of the best chefs in

Challenge #03225-H316: A Different Cause For Tears

A human was crying, their friend asked what was wrong. They'd heard all their lives of all the wild cruelties humans had done to each other, then found an ancient, archived, video of humans in the past acting in kindness. The video really made them smile.

Humans don't always have good angles. The stories of them having murderous rampages against species that wronged them abound. Other stories... not so much. The stories

Plague news: no new cases! The four total active cases are still in hospital. Australia's at 91.7% first vax, 85.5% fully vaxxed. Queensland's second-last in the vax stats at 85% first vax, and 74% fully vaxxed.

I have some Wordpress to summon words for and I may go on a bit about how little things can balloon outwards. Bits about what's missing in the module and what I've done to fill in the blanks. And what's happened as a result.

Challenge #03224-H315: Like the Softly Falling Snow

Dan builds a larger home for himself, with plenty of room for all his adopted sons and daughters, with plenty of extra room for more kids to come and have someone to help and care for them. Melody helps where she can, when she can, and the kids start to learn what it's like to have a home, and a family that loves them no matter what.

Marvins beloved daughter, Vee, is a little older now and is a child that's apprenticing for her magic and her ability to heal using magic is becoming all the more impressive. Thanks to her dad's influence, greed, or ego, has never touched her, and compassion has become the solid core of who she is. Many still seek the youngster's aid, and as she gets older, she's getting more dragon-like in appearance, though retaining her human form, and she lives a happy life

Challenge #03222-H313: Necessary Adjustments

Master Twii was taking a class on programming, taking time away from the Dojo, on a station when a lifepod, or what was left of it, docked heavily. The smoking maw of the airlock opening up to disgorge disheveled, frightened, and wounded kids, the accident had killed the very few adults that had been there. The most scared of the kids hid behind the first adult human they saw, never having seen any other species before.
