Default [Game] [IC] Into the Black


OOC Thread

Location: Ezra - Haller Landing

Freight runs are a mixed bag. Sometimes they can be lucrative. Taking precious cargo from point A to point B, where the recipient pays handsomely, even after giving the "finder's fee" to the guy who hooked you up with the job. Sometimes the pay's not so good, where at the end of the run, after the fee is paid out, the captain is faced with the choice: Fuel, food, payroll-- pick two.

Even leaving out the issue of payment, there are sometimes other concerns with that cargo. Transporting livestock, for instance, leaves a ship often filthy and smelling for weeks. Same can be true for some chemical cargo.

And then there's the ever-present possibility of piracy. Various groups have been getting bolder these last few months, largely out on the Rim, but they've started to encroach into the Border systems as of late.

Fortunately for the crew of the Deucalion, the run from Greenleaf to Ezra was a short one. Alcomb Medical, a small pharmacom, needed to get a load of medical supplies from their refinery to a company town on Ezra to combat a minor, but stubborn, outbreak of the flux. They were even able to secure payment at both ends of the run, negating the need to go back to Greenleaf for the remainder of their money. Even threw in innocs for the entire crew to keep them from catching the flux, too.

This left the Deucalion needing a new job, though. Haller Landing was the local spaceport, plus a seaport, and thus there was trade to be had there. The crew had divvied up their pay and it was time to acquire supplies-- the pantry was getting kind of thin, and there was a market to browse in-- and otherwise fill some time until a job surfaced. If one was in need of refreshment or food, the biggest pub in town was the Slack Water Tavern.

Mando was keeping an eye on the ship, and had last been seen sitting outside the ramp, his gun-cleaning supplies out, but taking the time to trim his stubble with the edge of his knife.

==============
GM NOTES

Here we go! Quick ground-rule -- Always start your post with your character name and where they are. Example: Mando - Outside the Deucalion, Haller Landing This will make it easier for me to keep track of where folks are when they split up.

Everyone has their pay, and whomever is doing the shopping probably has been given enough to get a month's worth of foodstuffs (supposing it's just the crew eating, that is).

Things for the crew to do:
- Get supplies (food, fuel, engine necessities, etc.)
- Get a job (check the Cortex, ask around, etc.)
- Get some fun in (use your imagination)

Sama - Food Markets (she would of volunteered to do that shopping since she helps with most of the cooking)

She wanders the markets enjoying the rare planet side free time so often denied her growing up. Smells filling her nose, and the merry laughter of strangers....no people....going about their lives. "Captain said we might be here a while...wonder what fun there is to do?

She talks with merchants and begins the job of haggling for fresh food stuffs, a trick she learned at her papa's knee.

((Note: If planet side, she IS barefoot, station- shes wearing mid-calf boots).

Tucker - Ezra Markets

"I'll go look for parts and fuel capn'"

Before heading out he would ask Sama to make a list of any supplies or parts she needs for the engine. In the meanwhile he would also keep a look out for any books he is mostly certain Lizzie has not read yet.

As Sama heads out, "If you get into trouble you just let out a mighty loud scream and I'll be sure to run the other way." He gives her a wide teasing grind and then heads out toward the Market as well eventually splitting off as they are after different things.

Sama - still markets

she gave Tucker a list of items in order of priority, "and don't forget the wallabingbang tumi turner."

She says that with a straight face as they part ways, then lets loose a hearty chuckle as soon as she knows hes out of ear shot.

Captain Zhan - earlier on the ship

Before anyone leaves I will tell everyone that they need to go exactly nowhere on this planet unarmed or at the very least alone, and if you go unarmed your escort better be armed.

If anyone asks why the answer will be "Lot's of people around here have rather nasty intentions..."

"Also, Spider I'll be going with you." Have to keep an eye on the finances afterall. "Sama, who are you taking with you, or are you going with us?"

Sama almost visibly flinches at the mention of being armed, and hurriedly points at tucker.

"Last time I sent him off alone to look for parts, he came back with new versions that don't blend well with the ship, also gotta make sure he stays out of trouble."

Lizzie - Deucalion

Lizzie lags a minute or so behind the rest of the crew, making sure she looks good (but not too good) before she leaves the ship. She dresses in a pair of close-fitting khakis and a low-cut dark green tank top. She brushes out her ginger hair so the slight curls at the end rest against her shoulders.

Lizzie approaches the ramp just in time to hear the captain's instruction not to go alone and unarmed. She frowns slightly. After listening to Sama's response, Lizzie says, "It sounds like we're heading out as a group, then."

Zhan Cook - Duecalion

"Don't look so morose Lizzie. I thought soladarity was among your favorite things, or was I mistaken?" he says with a wry grin.

"Mando, keep watch, I'll be back to relieve you after we get the neccesities, till then we'll keep in hourly comm." he reassures the last crew member before turning back to the rest, "Shall we?"

Sama grabs Tucker's arm and says in the most sickenly sweet voice...

"Come on Tuckie, lets go paint the town red.....and if you're good, I'll buy you a drink.....I'm thinking dress shopping."

She drags him off laughing.

Lizzie - near Deucalion

Lizzie flashes a grin at Mando. "See you later!" Then she turns and follows Sama and Tucker, walking with a swing to her hips that she expects will attract attention.
