[act]Gilbert is standing at the docks, rocking back and forth on his heels, proudly and pointedly tipping his shiny Captain's Hat to any who make eye contact with him. He holds a bottle of champagne and two flutes.[/act]
Gilbert: Welcome! Oh...hold on a minute. You're not Elspeth.
All: [act]shake heads[/act]
Gilbert: [act]slightly crestfallen, hides champagne and glasses behind his back. [/act]
Emerald: Elspeth doesn't need the one-way trip to her Destiny any longer.

Tanya: Wi-what aside, perhaps you can tell us where we're headed?
Gilbert: You don't know either?

Cricket 1: In the end, I told her, if you can't make more of a commitment than that, I'm not prepared to sign half of my waistcoat business over to you!

Welcome to the Obernet Mystery Cruise! While the Sea Dancer is yet to arrive to take us on our journey, feel free to mill around the docking bay to catch up with your fellow revelers.

The MoOs: Enjoy!
