Campaign Turn 2
Seeing Chaket was still smarting from his minor wound, incurred during his crew's first job, Mason decided to use a chunk of his available Creds to call in a favour from his families physicians and get Chaket back on his feet. With debt still on the Solar Conveyor, it was also preferable that he paid off some of this as well.
Whilst the Forge family physician was attending Chaket, Mason detailed off the rest of his crew, using the down time wisely whilst waiting for one of his Patrons to call with a new job.
Taking Cal out and about in Erlich's main trade zone, Mason called in on an Alien Merchants shop he had heard about and after a bit of negotiation managed to come away with some damaged Combat Armour and Battledress, all in exchange for a Military Rifle. Looking around for Cal who had disappeared during the deal, Mason soon saw him sheepishly walking back into the shop. "Sorry Boss" said Cal "I got distracted and lost the Shotgun in a game of Triad Poker"
Mason's face showed his anger "You damn well better hope SH-1RE has repaired that Plasma Rifle when we get back or your sonic scrubbing the Vacuation tubes for a week!"
Returning to the ship, Mason's comm-Link chimed and Kheth's disembodied voice emanated from its small speaker. "Captain. True and I spoke with the doc and he told us a load of med stuff has come onto the trade catalogues, we've score some stimms and a case of med patches, going to be damn handy now in jobs are getting heavy".
"At least some one's come up trumps" muttered Mason looking over at Cal.
Back at the ship, the Doc informs Mason that Chaket is up and mobile and will be fine but no stellar travel for a few days.
Looks like I need a job at home then thought Mason. As luck would have it though, a Sector Government Official, 'Famelle Bude', who worked along side the Forge family for many years offered a job which needed completed immediately and if it went well would be able to provide a regular supply of jobs or opportunities.
'Bude' was offering private transport to an old freight depot, Haarland Point, on the south continent, which was rumoured to contain a peculiar item, possibly an alien holo-transmitter, however the transport could only carry four passengers.
As the job shouldn't be too much of a hassle due to the minimal danger pay, Mason told True and Kheth to catch up on inventory of the med supplies and ship maintenance.
The transport finally landed on the edge of the depot and the door opening, Mason was met by a gloomy darkness which seriously hampered vision. Cal rolled his eyes, "well that's going to make finding anything more awkward but at least any Security will struggle to see us - that's if they don't have Infra Red!"
Battle - Move though the Freight Depot, defended by Security Robots.
