Cast of Characters: Groot, Tyran'tar, Star-Lord


Groot has posed:
Groot is traveling from point A to point B, rumored that a few of the scattered guardians may be near by, and Groot has been looking for them. The clue turned out not to be worth anything but it was on a small agricultural world of Shaza, but just as Groot was leaving, he heard a psionic distress call that disturbed him about its size and familiarity. "I am Groot." He moves out into the tall fields of the planet to investigate.

Tyran'tar has posed:
    Tyran'tar heard the distress call from his ring. Changing to his green lantern uniform he flies as fast as he can to the source. The ring told him that they will be coming to the distress signal shortly, and he just watches as a walking tree seem to be moving in the same direction as him.

Groot has posed:
Groot moves into the woods and listens carefully. As he does he looks up and spots the ring bearer and waves. "I am Groot." Green Lanters are someone that might ordinarily make him nervous but in this situation make him glad to have around. Something is screaming. As he moves forward, trying to center the source of it and isn't. As he listens, he starts to realize it isn't coming from the crops...it IS the crops. "I am Groot." He mutters in horror and begins to talk to them. "I am Groot."

Tyran'tar has posed:
    The tree talks, and it is a language the ring recognizes. Thankfully. He makes his way to Groot and lands next to him. "You heard it too right?" He asks as he looks around and begins scanning with his ring. "You're one of the guardians of the galaxy, right? Thought I heard the name Groot before." He says as he looks around to the plants and begins to scan them to see what was wrong.

Groot has posed:
Groot says, "I am Groot." He looks down, listening to the roots which scream, "They are harvesting us and eating us!" Groot turns and looks to Tyran'tar and says, "I am Groot." It also answers his question, "I am Groot."

Tyran'tar has posed:
    "I am Tyran'tar of Tamaran." He says as he looks around at the plants. "If the plants are Sentient, then we got to stop the farmers from harvesting them." He says as he floats into the air and looks around to see where the farmers are at. "We have to stop them."

Star-Lord has posed:
It's around this time a speck in the distance can be seen, followed by a heat trail as a ship comes through atmo. It's small, but the pilot seems to be taking care of the breach quite expertly.

It'll be a minute or so before it gets where Groot and the Green Lantern are.

Groot has posed:
Groot begins to march to the processing center of the complex, large branch like legs forming moving him faster than normal as he moves over the fields, not looking happy at all. His voice booms loudly "I. AM. GROOT!"

Tyran'tar has posed:
    Tyran'tar flies ahead uses his ring to create a hard light wall between the farm and the farmers. He then floats down to Groot. "We need to figure out how these plants became Sentient...The Farmers dont know any better." He says as he keeps the wall up.

Star-Lord has posed:
It's around this time static comes over Groots comm device. it's been dormant for a while, but the Milano is the main communications hub for the Guardians, so that can only mean The Milano has found him.

A few seconds later, and Peter can be heard crystal clear by Groot, privately, "hey buddy. The Milano think it's found Groot. Is that you?"

The small ship in the distance is through atmo now, the heat trail going cold as the small spacecraft starts to turn towards the farm.

Groot has posed:
"I am Groot." Groot agrees but his anger doesnt simmer down at all. He smiles, despite the fury dripping from his voice and pings back to Peter, "I am Groot" clearly pleased to see him. He explains the situation to Peter in exquisite detail. "I am Groot."

He moves to the tall seeding platform with the administrative office, pulling himself up, eyes glowing red as he roars at them, "I. AM. GROOT!"

Tyran'tar has posed:
    Tyran'tar approaches the seeding platform. "Excuse me." He says as he pulls the man out of it and stops the machine. He then begins to scan the machine to see if it did more then seed. He ignores the conversation between groot and peter and looks to the plants scanning them next. "Now how did this happen?" He mutters more to himself then to anyone specific.

Star-Lord has posed:
It's around that point the ship comes close up, and the Milano comes in for a landing in the nearby grass fields with a smooth landing. The engines go to standby, and a plasma turret pops out of the bottom of the ship.

"I'll let you handle this one, Groot. Just come on over if you need backup until you're ready to head out. We have a job going on quite a ways away, so we need to get back soon." Peters explains over the comm device. "Your Green Lantern friend should be all the field backup you need, from the looks of it." Peter seems to be monitoring the situation, at least.

Groot has posed:
The crew on the platform scatter like the wind but one of the admins comes out and wrings his hands, "It was a group of crazy kids. They used a sapience virus but we tested their psych levels, and they're just intelligent enough to have a limited vocabulary of 200 words and scream in pain. Legally, they're animals and they were our property to begin with. Billions of credits in crop!"

Groot grows even larger. "I. AM. GROOT."

Tyran'tar has posed:
    "They are Sapient creatures now. You would no sooner offer your workers or neighbors to be slaughtered simply because the profit said so." Tyran'tar says as looks to Groot. "I believe you would rather deal with me, then him. He is willing to use force against you. I am not."

Groot has posed:
"If you aren't going to use force, then we aren't going to stop. And we have 20 herbicidal drones trained on this direction. The bounty on this one has become considerable."

"I am Groot." Groot says menacingly. He has a gleam in his eye that indicates he isnt worried about the drones at all.

Tyran'tar has posed:
    "The Virus must have a gestation peroid, and then the plants become normal plants...I am saying just delay the harvest...For X'hal's sake these things sent out a distress call into space. I think they have earned their right to be intelligent for the time being." He says as he floats down to Groot and looks up to the tall being. "Is this good enough for you?" He asks Groot to see if he approved or not.

Groot has posed:
"It can be reversed but we weren't willing to pay the ransomware to them. It's just cheaper to harvest them."

Groot gives a final warning, "I am Groot."

Groot considers and says, "I am Groot." His counter proposal involves giving them another crop that will ultimately be more profitable for them in the long term but they'll need to leave the Space Potatos alone to live out their natural lives. It is obvious from his tone of voice he is secretly hoping they say no.

Tyran'tar has posed:
    Tyran'tar translates the proposal to the others from groot. He then nods. "This proposal works and best of all, you make a profit greater then you would have normally. Please, consider the lives of these newly awakened plants." He says calmly. He honestly was expecting things to go sour and his stance was ready for it.

Groot has posed:
The Administrator is about to refuse. He sneers, "If you aren't going to take us on Lantern then we are more than a match for..." his phone rings. he looks at the security camera. "Yes, I looked up his planet of origin. No, I'm not familiar with the technology of....fine, a moment sir." He moves over to the computer and his eyes bulge like he was being strangled, "I'll um...accept his offer right away sir."

"Terribly sorry about that, we're more than happy to take his offer."

"I am Groot." He sighs, he was so looking forward to rewiring their transmat device sending them all to the single shuttle on the ship for the three week journey to the nearest habitat. He closes his hand and a small apple looking thing appears in his hand as he hands it to the administrator.

Tyran'tar has posed:
    As he says he isnt going to take them on, a knife construct forms in his hand and looks almost like he is about to cut into the man when the phone call came. He remains silent and nods. "Good." He says as the construct fades into the aether and he turns to groot and moves a hand to place on his shoulder. "Well done Groot. You managed to save innocent life. Today's a good day." He says calmly to the tree before looking to see the ship nearby. "I believe thats your ship?" He asks curiously.

Groot has posed:
Groot nods with genuflection to Tyran'tar, "I am Groot." He waves and offers to shake his hand. If accepted, he does so and then glares at the administrator that lets him know in no uncertain terms taht he will be back to check up on the space potatoes. As it is, he lets Peter beam him on board and heads out onboard the Milano. "I am Groot."

Tyran'tar has posed:
    Tyran'tar shakes Groot's hand and nods. "I will make sure he keeps his word. Even if I have to violate the guardians orders to do so." He says as he begins to float into the sky and makes the wall vanish from the farmhands.
