    Near the edge of town a man in a long brown duster lays on his belly in the grass. He looks through the scope of a large artillery rifle. A lazy curl of smoke rises from the cigarette perched in the corner of his mouth. He takes a look through the scope, makes a small adjustment then Squeezes the trigger. The paint can in the distance jumps into the air before the boom of the rifle echoes through town. A moment later a flash like a Halo erupts where the paint can once stood. A puff of smoke curls from the barrel and his cigarette.
    “That’ll do.” He says with a smile.

    All her research and work at the Healers’ Guild was jumbled up in her mind, so Kestrel had gone for a walk when she heard a loud boom come from the edge of town. Out of habit, she started for the source of the sound at a run, but when she saw no one else around, the siren quickly took to the sky. What could it be? Voidlings? The Old Masters? Was Gaius attacking again? When she reached what seemed like the origin of the sound she began circling, golden eyes scanning the ground for the cause of the noise. She quickly found her answer in a familiar form on the ground. As soon as she recognized the gunman, she smiled and turned her circling into a slow decent.

    “Hello Dusk,” she greeted him once her feet touch the ground, “Was that you making that noise or do I need to go back to investigating?” She eyed the large gun in the bounty hunter’s hands, figuring she already knew the answer.

    Alina came bounding out to the fringe from town, her jacket left behind, clearly in a haste to get to the source of what sounded like an incoming attack. Upon spotting Kestrel and Dusk chatting, she slowed from her sprint and came to a stop near them. “Dammit Dusk, you mind letting people know BEFORE you go testing out a new toy that sounds like it could kill off the population of Oasis with relative ease?!”

    “Just a little target practice Alina. Besides, now we know who will respond the fastest if anything should attack again.” He smiles from his prone position on the ground.

    Dusk moves to a sitting position and takes a drag on his cigarette. “Well, a new gun and surrounded by beautiful ladies. This has certainly been a morning for the record books.” He smiles at the pair.

    Kestrel nods her greeting to Alina then chuckles at Dusk’s comment and offers him a hand to help him up. “It looks like that thing has one hell of a kick. Where in the Nexus did you find a gun like that?”

    Dusk tips his hat and accepts the hand up. “Picked it up off of one of the baddies recently. Getting a feel for it. You ain’t kiddin, it kicks like a mule.”

    Knowing that for the moment at least, there wasn’t a danger to attend to, Alina allowed herself to relax, and found herself chuckling. “That’s fair Dusk, with all the new and ‘new’ faces around town, it’s hard to know how anyone responds around here anymore. Though if you’re gonna be hanging around Oasis more, you better get used to being surrounded by pretty ladies. There’s certainly a lot of them about. Then again, I do live across from one of the brothels, so maybe I see more pretty folks than the average fringe-dweller.”

    Dusk nods, “Oasis has never had anything remotely like a disciplined fighting force. Typically they just run about and rely on the fact that they are by and large a powerful bunch. I got no interest in leading but it was good we were able to get the new folk out if the line a fire a bit. Y’all did real well in that last fight. I was right impressed.”

    Appearing suddenly with his head on Dusks shoulder, Harp will intently peer at the large weapon that made the fascinating amount of boom

    Instinctively Dusk’s hand will drop to the butt of his pistol but relax quick when he sees Harp. “Damn Harp, gonna give a feller heart palpitations.”

    “I was amazed and awed at the fact that we had a wall of shields. Usually it’s just been myself and one or two other folks with shields, seems like they’re catching on. Might be worth holding some drills for tactics, since there’s so many more fighters around now. Careful there Harp, you’re gonna wind up getting yourself hurt sneaking up on people like that, all silent-like.”
