Mustered Out on Mertactor

099-1107

Decision Time

For two days, the party members enjoy doing very little – no disasters to take care of – just some time off to relax and continue with their training.

They stop their solitary pursuits during the day to have dinner which Autumn has prepared.

“We need to decide where we are going to go next,” says Autumn. “Max is going to be back shortly after we land and I’m sure he’ll want to head off somewhere as soon as possible so that the ship can start earning some more cash. I must admit that I’ve had enough of Glisten now in any case. We’ve been here long enough now.”

“So does anyone have any suggestions as to where we should go next?”

“Why not the Sword Worlds?” Grim suggests.

“I dunno about the Sword Worlds Grim”, says Taeva, “I take it you’re joking?”

“Maybe.” Grim replies seriously, then, after a pause, breaks out laughing. “They are nuts out there, those Swordies.”

“My destination vote would be Darrian – basically because I’ve always wanted to go there since I was a little girl." Taeva continues, “My guess is to make the risky money we should keep off the major routes of the Spinward Main- Mora, Rylanor and so on.”

“Darrian, 268, maybe even Reidan and the Reaches- once we’ve upgraded our ship weaponry as much as we can.”

“I was wondering if we could go to wherever we’re heading next via Mertactor,” Autumn replies. “I haven’t seen my Mom for over a year now and I miss her. I think Max would like to stop by home as well. He was telling me he wants to try out his new bionic penis on some old flames that he has there.”

“Ah Mertactor! It has been too long since I’ve seen the Marine training fields of Hells Brigade and heard the cries of despair. The memories of quiet torture and the mess hall of explosive slop still linger. It is where I was made.” Jie looks lovingly at Black Betty, you can almost see tears forming in her almond eyes. “Where We were made.”

“I would like to see the Darrians as well,” agrees Autumn. “I’ve only ever seen the Imperium and District 268. Of all of the alien races, the Darrians seem the nicest and the least likely to try and kill us.”

She looks around to see if anyone disagrees.

“So that’s settled then,” she says. “To see the Darrians via Mertactor. It will probably be better to leave the exact details of the route to Max so that we can make as much cash as possible by trading along the way. The kitty is looking pretty bare at the moment so it needs topping up over the next few jumps.”

Comments

Grim uses a little time to see to his Uncle Owen and his Aunt Beru, and his nephew and niece, before they leave Therak. Just to make sure their Hab is ok.

Later, during the two day break, he tries to work himself up to comming his mother and father, but without success. ‘Best left for another day’, he thinks.

Finally, back aboard the Princess, and in response to Autumn, he says, “Why not the Sword Worlds?”

((OOC, Hey Jay I guess I owe you an explanation and 10,000 credits. I was in charge of your guy during all the rescuing last Sunday and things started to get a little confusing. To tell the truth, I blame Nick for me making you shoot the Baronet! While we were in his Dome these looters started coming out from everywhere, but they all had names like Ripper and Michaels and Hurkilstein not the usual #1 or #5. Then Taeva says she happens to know this particular vile band of misanthropes and that we should kill each one or else they will hunt US down for revenge (a little insight to Taevas past there).

I channeled the kindly nature of Will and typed that he said ‘Taeva! These are humans! Sure they’ve made mistakes but I will not be part…” just then your new DEX augments twitched and shot the Gause pistol you were waving around right at the baddie in front of the Leader of the looters. Too late did I see his name was Yaj. (See!! a real name like all the other looters!!) As in Baronet Yaj, the hostage.

As luck would have it I also channeled the marksmanship of Will too and rolled double 1’s…))

Wherever we go we should have a TL 14 or 15 world at the end of the string, so that when we can afford too we can upgrade the ship/ our gear.

“I dunno about the Sword Worlds Grim”, says Taeva, “I take it you’re joking.”

“My destination vote would be Darrian-basically because I’ve always wanted to go there since I was a little girl. My guess is to make the risky money we should keep off the major routes of the Spinward Main- Mora, Rylanor and so on.

“So Max. This thing in my hand isn’t actually a gun-its called a Data Corer. Basically it generates a short range EMP pulse which plays havoc with electronics and computer systems. My question is-this new penis of yours. What what happen if I held it near here and pressed the trigger?”.

“Or is it organic? Don’t be coy Max.”
