Scan her! What happens if he should find a plasma caster? Does he get to see it work?
Centcomm 8th Jul 2014, 11:22 PM edit delete reply

if he finds it ,. most likely he will get a very close up look..
Stormwind13 9th Jul 2014, 1:28 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, but his view probably won't last very long, CentComm. Then he won't care at all. Lack of his head will do that to a man. :-D

I doubt she's so sloppily constructed that the border guard's scanners can find anything.
anonymous coward 9th Jul 2014, 4:49 PM edit delete reply
Sloppy? Bah, what the heck kind of magic successfully pretends that a fusion reactor and magnetic waveguides is benign under active or passive scanning? I'd hope her installed weapons didn't compromise on range, power and reliability in a misguided effort to pretend the pipe is not a pipe.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2014, 5:03 PM edit delete reply

most scanners operate on a standard design - Ceci has a wireless flexable hacking system that simply tells the scanner what its going to see. IF it works then the person using it might pass it off as a glitch not to mention these guys really dont know what they are looking at . they are just looking for the characteristic signature of a inhibitor all these monkeys do is press a switch.

Ceci could be carrying a A/M Bomb and they wouldn't know.

Shouldn't they be staying vigilant and manning their posts?

You're kidding right? Customs bureaucrat is one of the most boring jobs possible; it tends to attract nosy bullies who enjoy having situational authority to push people around. It's unrealistic at best to expect people to be anything more than people.
Centcomm 8th Jul 2014, 11:22 PM edit delete reply

there are others there..
mjkj 8th Jul 2014, 10:46 PM edit delete reply

I did not expect CeCi to go through with that.

I wonder what will happen...

...and if Dolly is going to complain about them.

@alt text: It seems more like that CeCi made it.

Centcomm 8th Jul 2014, 11:23 PM edit delete reply

the problem with complaining is it causes all kinds of nasty things like inquirys and attention Dolly currently does not want.
Stormwind13 9th Jul 2014, 3:50 PM edit delete reply

Two words as to why Dolly doesn't want to open that can of worms, mjkj. Red TAPE. :-p She files a complaint, and she could be here until the heat death of the sun trying to get it resolved. The joys of a bureaucracy. :-p
Sheela 8th Jul 2014, 11:17 PM edit delete reply

Only 4.8 megacreds for killing those two dudess ?

Man, what a bargain. :D
Centcomm 8th Jul 2014, 11:25 PM edit delete reply

Actually 4.8 Mcr is what Ceci's basic body is worth ( A basic model 4E )

( not including her combat mods and other after market toys... that jacks her to 9.5 Mcr ) )

What's the GNP of New Troy again, and the GNP per capita?
Stormwind13 9th Jul 2014, 1:31 PM edit delete reply

Never stated, anonymous... and likely runs into ridiculous numbers where the Dolly and the Taylors, and CentComm operate. They have (basically) unlimited funds to do what they need to do.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2014, 5:35 PM edit delete reply

We have never stated that.. :P
jamie59 9th Jul 2014, 6:02 PM edit delete reply

So the options are just a smedge less that the base model.
mjkj 9th Jul 2014, 3:07 AM edit delete reply

Where did you get the 4.8 Mcr from? CeCi is talking about 4.6 Mcr...
Centcomm 9th Jul 2014, 5:05 PM edit delete reply

Ceci's "price tag" is based on the RPG Spacemaster ( building a andriod costs ) :D
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 5:51 PM edit delete reply

Sheela jacked up the price .2 Mcr, mjkj. Her commission fee, probably. Which she will pocket and report the 'list' price as the price charged, I'm sure. Puppy is underhanded... err, pawed! :-D
Sheela 10th Jul 2014, 7:35 PM edit delete reply

ACK !!

I have been found out !
Quick .. flee !

Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 7:40 PM edit delete reply

Loose the hounds! Track the felonious puppy and bring her low! :-D
mjkj 9th Jul 2014, 3:08 AM edit delete reply

I like how they are multitasking and having two conversations at once :D

Edit: I wonder if they fit CeCi with an inhibitor will it work on her? Or does her special structure/watchdog prevent it?
Centcomm 9th Jul 2014, 5:05 PM edit delete reply

we shall see :D
cattservant 9th Jul 2014, 7:24 AM edit delete reply

More than they can chew...
Stormwind13 9th Jul 2014, 1:27 PM edit delete reply

And Sheela is proven right (or kind of)... At least ONE of them understands the language Dolly is speaking (even if it isn't Common). :-D And suddenly lost his desire to enjoy the perks of his position after the graphic threat Dolly made. :-D

I have a feeling Dolly will REMEMBER these two and, if possible, will ensure they suffer some BAD karma before she departs Nova Roma. :-D
Centcomm 9th Jul 2014, 5:06 PM edit delete reply

Dolly is speaking "Standard" the guards are speaking Roma
Antonious 9th Jul 2014, 11:21 PM edit delete reply

I think it is more the tone of Dolly's words. Kind of like the difference in a dog's barks. One tone says "I'm happy to see you" the other says "I am happy to rip your limbs off just for fun."
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 3:09 AM edit delete reply

My only problem with that is the guard's specific reaction, Antonious. I mean, he is BEHIND Dolly, so he can't see her expression. If he didn't understand her words, it would be ONLY off her tone. And most people won't react that fast to just tone.
Tokyo Rose 10th Jul 2014, 5:24 AM edit delete reply

Dolly comments on this in the next page, but it's not a huge spoiler to point out that people can't GET a job as a customs agent without being able to speak Standard. It simply does not happen, not even in arrogant-as-fuck New Rome. That fact does not, however, stop assholes from acting like assholes when they feel like being assholes.
Sheela 10th Jul 2014, 7:38 PM edit delete reply

Indeed, and that was kind of what I was alluding to, in a previous post.

Also, even if they didn't know standard when they started, they would probably pick up on it pretty fast, as it would be awfully convenient to know what the bastard you're inspecting, is saying behind your back.

*is busy.......locating thos two guard's Houses and organizing An orbital Kinetic strike on it when they get home*
anonymous coward 9th Jul 2014, 4:55 PM edit delete reply
Waste of time: There's more cowardly creeps than you could personally research, locate, and target for orbital kinetic strikes with minimal collateral damage. What you need is to implement some sort of concentration camp system, to separate the creeps out from the general population. I recommend tattooing numbers on them, as well as pink triangles for the sexual deviant class of detainees. Fortunately for you most of the details of how a such a system would work have already been developed and refined with previous experience. Here's a starter guide for the prisoner identification part of the system, the other chapters of how you would go about managing your final solution can be reached by wiki-crawling from this page:

Duuuude.. whoa. A bit harsh.
anonymous coward 9th Jul 2014, 5:12 PM edit delete reply
Jokes about murder may be funny, but this one wasn't good enough yet so I had to *improve* it. Now it's properly funny in the ha-ha-this-is-scary-and-insane kind of way.
Centcomm 9th Jul 2014, 5:32 PM edit delete reply

I prefer to stay away from subjects that can cause arguments in the comments - the participation is appreciated though ...
Rashala 9th Jul 2014, 8:18 PM edit delete reply

*RAshala walks back to Tedde and Marcus's dressing room STILL Creepy calm* Gonna borrow this *he says TAking the Combination plasma thrower/chainsaw And revving itup goes to have a word with those guards hour later he come s back hands Tedee a credit chit * To pay for the refill and I had if cleaned off of all DNA.. *walks off* I feel better now.

He may not understand the words from Dolly but he sure as hell can see the anger in her voice and not from fear.
Centcomm 10th Jul 2014, 6:54 PM edit delete reply

oh yeah her tone speaks volumes :D
Johninaustin 9th Jul 2014, 9:42 PM edit delete reply
Since previous perverts in this story have either been gutted like a fish or clobbered with a table ornament, I'm looking forward to the next few pages. ")
XMinusOne 9th Jul 2014, 11:28 PM edit delete reply
I'd imagine Cici's 'ladyparts' have the compression power of a steam hammer so I pity the fool who decides to get 'frisky' with her. His pink concertina would look like a tapeworm, only flatter. Yeesh!
Centcomm 10th Jul 2014, 6:54 PM edit delete reply

dies laughing .. :D
highlander55 10th Jul 2014, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

But the question is what if she enjoys coitus? Then what!
Centcomm 10th Jul 2014, 6:55 PM edit delete reply

we shall see wont we :D
Stormwind13 10th Jul 2014, 7:16 PM edit delete reply

Probably not... The EVIL duo will probably change scenes again just to FURTHER torment us! :-p

If you really, really, really want to see some 3D comic porn there are options on the internet. As someone that has helped write up firing paperwork for call centre workers caught accessing this stuff on company time/property I know far more about the existence of this stuff than I ever wanted to.
Caley Tibbittz Collopy 23rd Jul 2014, 7:11 AM edit delete reply

Aw, I wanted her to shoot them. I guess some androids look at body issues differently than us mere mortals. I'd definitely want a whole new body after that.
