“I think we’re ready Baryl.” Thea announced while coming back with the small group, all of which Beryl nods to.

"Have somewhere I can stow this?" The soldier lady asked, supposedly concerning her bag.

"Sure I can keep it in storage or behind the bar if you want, but Coco's ship should be more than big enough to store it somewhere in her little transport if you prefer to keep it with you."

“When and where should we find our target?” Coco asked cheerfully.

"First thing first kid. Lets make sure my podship still turns on~" Bending down a bit she retrieves a sign and sets it on the bar counter. It read in all caps, DRINKS ON THE HOUSE BUT ITS SELF SERV BITCHES - YOU BREAK ANYTHING I BREAK YOUR ARM. She then takes the group in the back where the kitchen would be, then down to the storage. After turning on a light they head down a long flight of metal stairs, the group could hear the electric lights start to buzz while they warmed up. From the light dust that had settled around the place it was clear she hadn't been here in a while. As they look around they can see closed lockers and stacked crates of mysterious things, probably weapons or tech, as well as a large tarp. She moves to the tarp and throws it off creating a small dusty explosion.

Underneath was her podship and along the side are the words artistically drawn in colorful cloud bubbles, Ninja Pirate Unicorn. Above it is the picture of a rainbow colored jumping unicorn, dressed in black ninja garb, with a skull and crossbones eye patch, on roller skates. "Voila, here's my baby." Other than the ridiculous name and logo, the ship seemed like some serious tech. It seemed more like a miniature stealth fighter than a normal pod ship. The armored hull was matte black and angular in design with built in thrusters.

Normally a pod ship looked like a mashed together escape pod fitted with rockets and stuff strapped onto it, while this looked almost military grade. She moves to the back and opens the hatch, stepping inside. On the inside it was cramped as one would expect, though instead of individual seats it had benches with straps to act both as seating and offer some room for storage. In the front was a pilots and passenger seat with camera screens instead of a glass viewing area. It offered a full 360 view around the ship, on one of the screens stood the group.

Beryl sits down and turns on some switches, some lights flicker but don't turn on. After some more finagling she comes out. "Yea... I was afraid of that. The batteries dead, we'll need to get it charged. Other than that..." She gives them all a thumbs up. "I'll get it charged and have some guys move it to your cargo ship Coco. I'll send you the mission details then."

Then everything fades to black, much like a screen transition! It was almost as if some vague amount of time was passing while the four of them left to go on their secret mission and Beryl would finally get some sleep before going back behind the bar where she normally was while they were gone.
No need to reply to this post you guys, I'll be making a new topic for your mission you can post at soon.

~The man walked into the saloon saying nothing, he quickly found a seat at the bar~ ~He set down three gold coins onto the bar counter~ "Get me the strongest thing you got" ~He said it with what sounded to be a British accent~ ~The man scanned the area before speaking again~ "I'm looking for a man, he goes by the name Roy Williams, Tallish, Black hair, Only uses solid white revolvers. So... Have you seen him?" ~The man again glanced around the saloon waiting for someone to answer~ ~He sighs~

The Blue-haired-cyber-armed bartender looked up at the guest from something she was reading. "Welcome to the Blue Moon, where blood is thicker than gold and wishes come true." She answered in a rehearsed way before bending down to get some things from under the counter. After visually sizing him up she quickly mixes together a concoction and slides it over "Strong is subjective, but you can try this." It would look and smell a lot like a beer, like the classic ones from the old times. However the taste was much stronger, a mixture of malty bitterness and a hard afterburn of alcohol. "I've been tryin'ta perfect a synthesized beer, but I threw in some extra Karmotrine for kick."


"I'm looking for a man, he goes by the name Roy Williams, Tallish, Black hair, Only uses solid white revolvers. So... Have you seen him?"

"Hmm, and who's askin? I don't know-em by name, but I've seen allota big guys with revolvers. Pretty popular weapon really, so you're going to need more to go on than just white ones. Why'ya lookin' for'em? If he's a fellow Mooner, well I don't usually give away info on other patrons unless they did somethin' they shouldn't uh, bad for business ya'know?" Then as an afterthought she added. "Gotta solve more than my fair share of peacekeepin nowadays."

"Hey Beryl, can I get another drink over here." Britt asked the bartender as he over heard the conversation. "Honestly i think revolvers are overrated. I mean it only hold no more than what seven shots? Honestly anyone would be better off with a pistol." Britt said. "And why look for a person did he do anything terrible?"
