With a bit of a nod to Argo and Trever, Rufus agrees, "Yes, I think the best thing we can do now is gather our wits, get some good rest, and be ready to go in the morning. No particular order on that. Come morning we will have our hands full." With that, he puts the issue of what to do next to rest, instead musing, "I wonder what the upshots of such communication have on the Ul-Mor society? Hmmm."

Outside of minor chit-chat, Rufus seems content to rest for the rest of the evening before it's finally time for bed. He pulls the power from and fiddles a little with his laser, making more fine adjustments to the weapon, but with little consequence. Somehow happy, he closes it back up and reattaches the power.

Alex bit back a few choice quips about Rufus getting butt-probed, letting the opportunity pass in a more mature atmosphere. "I suppose we just need to make sure we have enough supplies and decent survival equipment for the journey. Maybe they will let us use a real tent or two for the journey instead of the makeshift leantos we make with emergency blankets."

Miranda agreed, "I think that is fair. We have given them a few items that could be of much greater value in comparison. Much of the spare equipment can be traded now that we have friendly natives that we can survive with."

Athru returned to enjoying the celebration and feasting with the rest of the Ul-Mor as the new tribe members were talking about resting up for a journey that night.

Nodding, Rufus adds, "Yes, a real tent or two would definitely help. Between that and the lopers, we should be in considerably better shape. I can't think of much more we need, more than getting to it. We've got a lot to figure out if we're to find out who we are and what we are doing here on this world." The mechanic things a while. "The longer we're here, the more it feels like the past doesn't matter," he muses, scratching his whiskered chin sympathetically.

The technicians last sentence made Trever's heart sink into a dark hole. His brother had died. How could he ever forget that?

The boy was speechless for a while, the memories flooding back into his mind.

"Yeah, tents would be nice," Trever tried to get the thoughts out of his mind.

"That should do it, then," Rufus comments, tailing onto Trever's comment on the idea of getting tents. "I think we've got a good basic game plan and just making it happen should be the goal. No need to overthink it with too many details, just make sure we're strong on the basics. Being well rested and in good health is a good start. Check gear is a good idea as well." After a short pause, he adds with a bit of question, "I assume we mean to visit the closest settlement first? That would make sense. Is it stationary, or nomadic, I wonder."

Alex had not thought of anything else they needed either. “Yeah, that was about the only essential gear we lacked was proper tents. With enough provisions we are good to go.”

Miranda did not have any new insights into gear, but remarked at Rufus’s question, “We are following the guides to the tribe where there are more of our kind residing. I don’t think they said anything about whether that was the closest one or not.”

Athru picked up a translation from the polyvox worn by Trever and replied, “Yes, some shelters can given. Enough for everyone.”

Tagging into Miranda's comment on the way the tribesmen were going to escort the group, Rufus nods to her curtly and mutters, "Yes... yes, yes. That's right." Bringing up his voice, he speaks more generally, "Well, then. I can't imagine anything else at this point. I think we've planned this to whatever extent is possible, so it's just a matter of what we do in the meantime. I'm still curious if I can use solar power to put charge back on a laser pistol's energy pack, at least looking for more resources and fiddling until departure time." With a non-commital shrug, he falls silent. Eyes wandering his immediate surroundings, the technician starts mentally assessing what sorts of natural resources the Ul-Mor seem to have access to.

Maya had gone silent again as the others continued to discuss the next few days of planning and the Ul-mor. The girl was deep in thought, and missed Rufus asking if others wanted to do the mind-meld. Before she could think, it was already over. The purple hair girl frowned. Such of an experience would have been interesting, but at the same time frightening. Maybe if she was in better health, the girl would have volunteered.

At any rate, the discussion was concluded and things seem to be winding down. Proper tents were going to be provided as the group was now part of The One.

'Well, at any rate, it should be an exciting few days. Finding more like us on this planet and hopefully clues as to our past."

The girl thanks the Ul-mor again for their hospitality. She stood, stretched and began to make her way to one of the offered tents.
