She doesn't really wait for an answer, but heads back and starts unloading the injured man.


Drake just nods when Bean runs off. That's strange.. Drake thinks as he moves towards Tanya and crew to help move the injured. "Happy to help." Drake says, not even truly sure what was going on at the moment. Things are moving very quickly today. Drake thinks as he motions for Victor to grab Pat's legs, while moving to gab the man under his armpits. "One, two, three..." Drake says as he hoists the man off the floor of the truck. "So how does the Black Bear handle? That Blue Boy of yours handles well but I'm not a fan of it's weapon systems." Drake asks mostly to make small talk as they moved Pat to the teams garage. Drake looks for a spot to lay Pat down and moves the man there. "I'll grab some blankets and such" Drake says to Tanya.

Drake heads to his little room and grabs the bedding from the cot and a sleeping bag from his pack before heading back and offering the bedding to whomever is tending to Kent. Drake makes the same move to Pat and attempts to make the man more comfortable on the cold concrete floor. "Well that went from okay to piss right quick, is everyone okay..? Save for these two." Drake asks before his mind even registers that he could possibly help the two men. (Paramedic: Kent 1d100:

, Paramedic: Pat 1d100:

) Drake doesn't think anything of helping the mercenaries, it seems as though he has made any piece with his normally damaged conscious.

"Where's Sir Martin?" Drake asks almost as an afterthought. Looking around Drake grabs a shop rag and wipes his hands, before taking the time to start stripping out of the remains of his ruined armor. Damn another suit... I should just buy stock in Northern Gun. Once Drake has the suit off he looks to those who are still standing. "Food, Drink?" Drake moves off to the teams bathroom and grabs a few towels and comes back out to hand them to Tanya and Daniel, then tosses one to Victor. "You should likely bring the power armors inside Victor."

He climbs on as directed while taking the opportunity to get a lay of the land at a higher vantage point.

FOOT ON THE PEDAL NEVER EVER FALSE METAL
Everyone finally gets around to the plush digs that is AAPS HQ. There is indeed a couple pies and a cobbler sitting in the kitchen cooling, which given that the ersatz AAPS chef has just scampered away shouldn't be a surprise. But there are a couple things to get sorted out.

[Okay guys, instead of a narrative, I'm going to list some questions and plot points and you guys can riff off of them]
  • Hank is sitting inside the hangar area guarding the remaining Blue Hands member.
  • Greyblade is unconscious hanging in Black Bear's hands.
  • The rest of Greyblade's gang - four members total: Daniel and Tanya are fully functional, Kent (who turns out to be male) and Pat (who turns out to be female) are both stable and unconscious thanks to Drake's medical skills.
  • The NG contacted needs to alerted that the power armor and data are retrieved.
    "There are three objectives we are looking for. Getting our unit back. Get the data that they stole. And lastly get the thieves and deliver them back to me. So they can be dealt with properly by my company." She looks at each one of the members of AAPS. "I am realistic, and I understand that this may not happen." she says in ther matter of fact tone. "For each objective, I have been authorized to provide 1 Million NGMI for the completion of each objective. If the unit can be verified that it was destroyed, we will provide half a million credits. The same for the data that they stole."

    • What to tell NG about Greyblade and his gang?
    • Anyone want to try and talk NG into letting them keep the Black Bear?
    • NG will pay the appropriate amount on the spot.
    • NG is pleased with AAPS, they had hardly expected to see the Black Bear again. They want to keep AAPS on a 10k NG credit retainer. They indicate they will have a rep contact them soon about another job.
  • Repairs and resupply are desperately needed.
    • List what repairs you want done and priorities in the project thread. (I promise I will look!)
    • Make a shopping list. This time, probably no epic montage, but maybe a couple skill rolls will be required. This includes things like the shotgun shells.
    • Based on established rules (I think they exist) roughly estimate the time needed for repairs.

What are you doing?

Back at AAPS HQ
Like a titan of smoke, Morning Glory marches to the AA Professional Services hangar, coming to a stop outside the main doors. Ecks radios to the rest of the team. ”We’re back with prisoners. What’s the situation here?”

He drops reactor output on the mobile hunter and unbuckles his harness, breathing an audible sigh of relief. Standing up he looks over to Brianna. ”I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to get this over with.” he says, taking his helmet off and clipping it to his belt. He climbs out of Morning Glory, but does not release the borg from the giant robot’s grip. He nods to Noth. "Well this is where we stop. I'm sure appreciative of your help. Before you go, we'd be happy to recharge your eclips, we may even be able to send some cash your way for your trouble, but first we've got some business to finish. We just ask you hang out here for a bit."

Walking inside, he looks for Drake.

”Drake, glad to see you all made it back ok. So… before I call our contact what do you want to do about Grey Blade? He’s your acquaintance. Even from the beginning I wasn’t that interested in bringing the thief in. I’ve never been keen on bounty hunting. And if he was a cyberknight I’d just as soon not. I’m not going to pry into your past, but for myself cyberknights are more than just an order, they are the hope for something better in all of us. That’s not just an illusion. I’d like to see him find the path again.” Ecks says with perhaps a bit of disappointment in his voice. He runs his hand over his sweat drenched brow to sweep back his hair. ”But if he’s too dangerous, we can hand him over to Northern Gun. Whichever way, I’d like to make the call to them soon so we can get this wrapped up. If we’re letting them go, I can take the Sled and drop them off at the hospital or wherever else they want to go.”

((rolls carried))

Singer
After the Grey Blade situation gets sorted, he comes back and examines the Black Bear closely. His examination is more than just cursory. Ecks undresses the power armor with his eyes, makes shrewd calculation at the systems contained within. (recognize machine quality) This may be the only time I get to see this. I wonder what their intents are with it. And that gun… There is no way the Coalition will ignore this if they put it into production. He pokes at some of the holes already put in it and shakes his head.

Once Singer emerges it as if he suddenly remembers that this guy jumped out of his mother’s scrapbook. ”So, surreal to say the least. I wasn’t expecting to see you today but I’m glad you turned up. I see you’ve learned a few things.” Ecks says, extending a hearty handshake and a pleasant smile.

Like earlier, even seeing Singer again makes him feel like a vulnerable part of him was suddenly brought into danger. Why IS he here? It’s not like we were friends. Did something happen back home? Or is he really just looking for a job? He certainly has skill. If Em sent him I can’t see it being a joke.
”So, you said you were looking for work? We can help you out there, but you might want to know a few things. We’ve been knee deep in demons and all sorts of unholy hell some of which still seems to be lingering. Weird things, man. Weird things...” he says resting a hand on Peta’s BB-6 holstered somewhat under his arm.

”Even here in town there’s a gang with some demonic ties that look for opportunities to pick a fight. Besides enmities, we run in the light as much as we can so to speak. No wetworks. We do our best to get along with the local law and have a good relationship with them. More or less we’re here to make an honest buck and expect team members to respect that, not that you wouldn’t.” he says adding the last part hoping to avoid sounding insulting as Victor likely still sees him as he used to be. ”The decision isn’t just mine, but the whole teams, but they are all pretty easy going. Though our jobs so far have sounded dull, they’ve been anything but. It is the magic zone after all. But who’s to say, we might all be snoring during the next job.”

Finally, Ecks blurts out what he's been wanting to ask from the get go. "So, is everything ok back home? I'm still just surprised to see you. Is everyone alright?"

Brianna smiles when she sees Ecks eyeing the sword as if to say 'Isn't she great!' Realizing that there wasn't a lot she could do to help with dismantling the borgs, Brianna keeps watch to make sure they aren't disturbed. She's glad that they're heading back to base so they can get this job done and then rest and relax for a bit before their next job.

He drops reactor output on the mobile hunter and unbuckles his harness, breathing an audible sigh of relief. Standing up he looks over to Brianna. ”I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to get this over with.” he says, taking his helmet off and clipping it to his belt.


Brianna nods. "I completely agree!" Brianna replies. "This little thing has been a lot more trouble than it's worth." She's a bit surprised when she learns that Ecks and this new Singer guy seemed to know each other. 'I wonder how they know each other? I also wonder if they would mind if I asked? Better let them talk first.' Brianna nods at Singer and Noth and says "Hi, I didn't really introduce myself before - I'm Brianna Clarke."

Drake sighs after making sure Greyblade's people are not going to die. Moving to one of the workbenches, Drake grabs a shop towel and wipes his hands off. Drake approaches the unconscious Greyblade and hoists him off of the Blackbear. Lets get you on the ground. Drake lays the Cyber-Knight onto the pavement and releases the mans helmet and pulls it off. Drake looks down on the face of his savior. "Why wouldn't you listen to me." Drake says softly.

Drake moves to Ecks. "I don't want to turn them over, Sir Martin's people are for the most part innocent. That being said, I'm unsure how Sir Martin will react to losing the Black Bear and the pay day he was seeking. If I had the time, I would take Sir Martin to a Hermit or something. He needs help, but I do not have the skills to help him." Drake stops and sighs. "We'll send him off with his team and hope it doesn't come back to bite us in the ass." Drake finishes warily.

Drake moves to Tanya. "Well that didn't go as planned, for either of us, I would think. Here's the plan, we're going to let you all go. No point in turning you all over to Northern Gun. I have a favor to ask, will you take Sir Martin with you?" Drake weakly smiles. "We're likely going to have to postpone drinks, but I'd like you to keep the coat. It serves you better then I."

Ecks nods in agreement with Drake's decision. He tucks a note in Grey Blade's armor before his crew leaves.

Ecks' note wrote:"I understand wanting to cash out, but there are better ways to make money. And for a cyberknight, you've been given a lot already. I think every dishwasher and maid on this planet might have some tips on ways to live without the necessity of millions of credits obtained through shady dealings. Life can suck. You, more than most, have the ability to change things."


Once Grey Blade and his comrades are out of the hangar, Ecks fishes out the card their Northern Gun contact gave them when they accepted the job. ”Hello this is Ecks with Double A Professional Services. We’ve secured your items. Please come out for a meeting as soon as you may.”

Once off the phone, he turns to the rest of the team. ”Ok, she should be on her way now. Hopefully we won’t take a loss on the Black Bear since it got a bit beat up. I can likely repair it if it comes to that. It seems to be a very tough machine though.”

When their contact gets there, he shows her into the bay along with the Black Bear.

”Well, here it is as promised." he says, gesturing towards the Black Bear. "It did take a bit of damage. I can repair it of course but we’d need to hang onto it for a bit… It was not easy getting it out of there. Naturally the core is in it so we have it as well. Grey Blade however, we do not have. While we did bring him here, we were unable to keep him or his crew. After the multiple waves of heavy infantry attacks, we weren’t interested in another fight with shredded armor and an unknown enemy still out there. Speaking of which is there anyway you could swing us repair parts at cost for the NG-V7?” he says evenly motioning to Morning Glory, still emitting puffs of smoke and wafts of ozone. While the Grey Blade crew weren’t up to much fighting either, would they have been if faced with incarceration? A single shot could have been the last one for Morning Glory as well. Yes, all that’s true, but really I can understand some of his frustration. And ultimately he lost anyhow.

"While we don't have Grey Blade for you, we do have some of the borg who assaulted us while trying to attain the Black Bear if they would be of any interest to you. I felt they may offer some clues as to other players in this game." Ecks says thumbing towards the mobile hunter's fists that still grip the borgs.

While business is being concluded, he does make an odd inquiry of his contact. "You aren't going to be doing any field trials with this unit are you? You know we could do it for you. You know I'm more than capable to perform repairs. I have to confess, it has me curious. What exactly do we have here? I've got a couple guesses."

O'Grady's.

After business with Northern Gun is finished, Ecks takes the Sled over to O'Grady's. Walking inside he nods to O'Grady behind the desk.

"Hey O'Grady! How's it goin? Healing up ok? I was wanting to follow up on the item we were wanting to move (CS Rocket bike). Did you figure something out pricewise?" he says fairly. The operators calm smile conveys forgiveness and a willingness to return to business though his posture one of alertness, perhaps inevitable after a betrayal.

Mantooth
After returning from O’Grady’s, Ecks removes his armor and heads for his room. Gathering fresh clothes and toiletries, he heads for a much desired shower. The hot water soothes aching joints and the pattering water provides gentle background noise to blot out the outside world for a few minutes.

In the isolation, he thinks over a reoccurring concern; that of the supernatural. I have to pick Brianna’s brain on this one. Since Connor’s departure we have been without a mage. I wish that Valentine guy had stuck around but after the ambush at O’Grady’s I can understand why he’d split. Maybe she’d be willing to help everyone outfit some weapons. I know a little but she knows a lot more I bet.”

Drying off and putting on jeans and one of his old Northern Gun t-shirts he walks back to the Hangar and sits down at his workbench. Leaning over he grabs out Peta’s Big Bore and cycles through the action a few times before placing it on the table. He remembers Peta’s last moments, his body half consumed still determined to take down that demonic thing. While Peta was a Psi Stalker, he was still human. As a fellow human, Ecks can feel pride in that incredible tenacity. When he first decided to keep the Big Bore, he already knew he was going to make it into something more; a statement to the supernatural they encounter that they were not easy pickings. Ecks needed this pistol to convey that even human’s had teeth not to be ignored. He aimed for the gun to not only look the part, but do the part.

”I need to get started on everything else, but this first. I can do some, but I will need to go to the mystic quarter and see if I can find someone to help. But, I’ll do what I can first.”

He puts in a call to Northern Gun for some general materials. ”This is Royal Ecks with Double A Professional services. I’m needing two feet of four by four MD bar stock. I need the good stuff, 9199 alloy. I also need silvered high impact armor studs and a five ounces of pure silver. I need it delivered.”

Even before the the material arrives, he disassembles the pistol and sets to work taking measurements and creating a blueprint on his computer. Once the materials arrives he begins milling, fitting, refining and reinforcing. He attaches the silver studs to the bottom of the grip on the frame, adds a vectored muzzle break to help control muzzle climb and accuracy and fuses the mega damage reinforcements to the barrel and frame. He then matches the internal mechanisms, reinforcing them where possible, to handle abuse in the field. Down the back strap of the grip he vertically engraves the word “Mantooth”.
Before reassembly, he submerges the the barrel, frame and cylinder in a prepared silver solution attaching anode and cathode, to plate the pistol in silver. Last of all, down the back strap of the grip he vertically engraves the word “Mantooth”.

3 Attempts for rugged construction attribute plus studs, accuracy, engraving and silvering
Weapons Engineer: E.P. Critical/88%, E.P. Critical/88%, E.P. Critical/88%
((Using 3 E.P. for critical successes on each weapon engineer construction roll.))


Reassembling the pistol he turns it over in his hands, inspecting his handy work. Ecks grabs 6 standard shells and steps outside, letting everyone know he was going to be shooting and to not be alarmed. Walking a few hundred yards away, he finds a safe back stop and scribes a makeshift bullseye. Stepping back 50 yards he fires all six rounds, adjusting his sights after each shot. Once satisfied, he goes back to the hangar.

Arcane Dabbling, to the Mystic Quarter.

Once back in the hangar, Ecks finds Brianna once she is done speaking with Noth and Victor.

”Hey, Brianna, I’m going to head to the Mystic Quarter. Would you be interested in going? I’ve also been meaning to ask you to help us outfit for more supernatural encounters. Our situation now is more vulnerable than it ever has been in regards to demons and such. I’ve read a bit, but I’m guessing you know a lot more than myself when it comes to these things. When we run into these things again, I want us to better be able to fight them. If you’re willing, would you help us gear?”

If she agrees, he continues on. ”I’ve retooled Peta’s old BB6.” he says, showing her the pistol. ”I’m wanting more bite for it when the chips are down. I’ve heard tale that Armstrong-Bennett in the mystic quarter may be a good place to start. It might also be a good place to go if we want to buy supplies.”

He also extends the offer to the other members, including Noth.

--------------------------------------------------------------

If she declines, he says ”Ok, well get some R and R in. I’ll be back in a bit.”

He extends to the offer to the other members, including Noth.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Armstrong-Bennett

Taking the Sled, he heads for mystic quarter along with anyone else that wants to come along. He has to reference the map many times. ”Well, you can tell I don’t come here often. It’s odd. All of this looks alien to me.” he says, glimpsing the other odd shops in this district.

Finally finding Armstrong-Bennetts heavily traveled shop, he parks the Sled nearby. He smiles and nods politely at all the other patrons, no doubt looking like a fish out of water. He watches Brianna as for queues on how to behave in this area as if he is in a foreign land. (if she comes along).

Once inside he looks for a clerk. ”Hi, I’m hoping you can help. Looking for a custom job with a twist.” Quietly he continues, laying Mantooth on the counter. ”I want magic bullets.” he says with a sheepish grin. ”More specifically, I’ve read about a spell that can suck the life out of demons. Dessicate the Supernatural I believe it is called. You might say I’ve got an axe to grind. From what I’ve been told you might be able to make something like that. Here’s the twist though. I don’t know a thing about magic. Can’t wave a wand if my life depended on it. But a friend I used to know hand a magic sword that I could activate, but it drew life from me to power it, so there has to be way to do this right? Cartridges just propel the actual bullet to the target. I dunno, maybe just make the bullet itself magic? Preload it with magic energy? You guys are the experts here, what can you tell me?” He finishes, glancing at Brianna to see if she thought he sounded as ridiculous as he sounds to himself.

Even Ecks can tell there's something off about the quiet man though.

@ O'Grady's

Ecks nods understanding some of Shane's frustration. "That meeting didn't go down at all how we expected. Plus it's a different environment than you likely are used to considering you now have others to coordinate with. I'm still getting a handle on the leadership gig. I'm getting better at it I think but I still have a long way to go."

Unsure of how to encourage him, he simply adds "Maybe your rifle needs to get used to its new role as well." Ecks' smile is easy rather than joking suggesting his comment isn't in jest.

AND IF I CLAME TO BE A WISE MAN
Daniel is anti-social and doesn't mingle with AAPS and friends. Tanya talks to Ecks and Drake mostly, just small talk. She graciously accepts the gift, "Well, next time we're in town, I know where to find you." Once their crew is stabilized, Tanya and Daniel load everyone up into the truck and get outta town.

Some of AAPS work on stowing the captured borgs somewhere, they are still vocal. Bri introduces herself to Victor and finds out he and Ecks know each other from childhood. She also notices that Victor can't keep his eyes off Black Bear, like he's ready to climb back inside at any moment.

Meantime, Ecks contacts Northern Gun. They voice on the other end plays it cool, but it's clear he (the woman didn't answer, her assistant did) is relieved and excited. "Understood, we will be there within the hour." And they make good on their word, arriving in 42 minutes.

During those 42 minutes Ecks and Victor (and anyone else who's interested) give Black Bear a thorough once over. It is clearly one of NG's "kitchen sink" designs built around the prototype Boom Gun knock off. Given the wallop the gun packed, the Northern Gun engines did a damn good job. Both Victor and Ecks are amused that the venerable NG-202 is included on such an advanced machine, some things are hard to improve on. It has upgraded electronics, but nothing there seems revolutionary. The quantum computer core is as much a massive data recorder as it is a control system. It probably knows what size underwear Victor wears. It seems to be the efficient armor and the giant ass cannon that are the hot items.

The representative arrives with the body guards as before, but they all pull around back to the hangar doors. There is another woman with them this time. She carries a large briefcase. One of the guards carries a case that is just like the one the core came in. The rep approaches Ecks, nodding politely at any of the others watching.

"Primary and secondary objectives achieved," she says, skipping any pleasantries. "That is two million credits as agreed," she reaches into her inside coat pocket and retrieves two credit cards, each black and stamped with the NG logo in gold. "A million on each card, tied to your AAPS account at our local branch," she continues handing the cards to Ecks.

While the rep is negotiating with Ecks, the other woman starts inspecting Black Bear. She hands out the core to the man, who promptly puts in in the case.

"Repairs? Should we charge you for the repairs on Black Bear? Maybe, we should. But you succeeded. So in exchange for the other prisoners, we will give you the last million and call it done," she says, with an actual smile. Then turning over her shoulder, "Does it check out?"

"One more minute boss, it got hit hard. Particle beams maybe?"

When Ecks and Victor ask about keeping it for testing and trials, she glares at them and simply says, "No." But she does hand Ecks the third card.

"Ready boss." the tech says.

"ETA nine minutes, ma'am," says one of the other guards, finger on his earpiece.

"In the next nine minutes, I want you to consider an offer," the rep says. "Ecks here may not have left Ishpeming under the most ideal circumstances, but his abilities were never in question. The integrity you as a company have shown on this job put you on our short list. We have continual need for qualified independent contractors. We of course would need you to sign an NDA about this association. You have seven minutes."

The whole group leaves immediately making room for Skybunker that comes zooming in for a hot landing. A pair of Samsons dash out and lift Black Bear onto a skid and push it aboard. The Skybunker is airborne again and zipping off into the night.

And AAPS is left standing in the hangar, with two faces in the mix.

WELL, IT SURELY MEANS THAT I DON'T KNOW
Ecks, Shane and Victor head out the next day to have a chat with O'Grady. Shane's paranoia guides the way and ensures no more surprises. They get to the junk yard without incident. Walking into the shack they don't see the proprietor up front. They are greeted by Chuck, the man who evaluated the rocket bike before. He nods and ducks into the back room. He returns and says, "O'Grady'll be right up."

The junk man comes in through a side door, which if Shane wasn't so amped up might have startled him. Thankfully no one is startled and no one is shot by a juicer.

"Ecks. What do you want?" he asks. When he hears Ecks' request he grunts. "Let me get the numbers." He takes what seems like a long time to return from his office. He hands Ecks a scrap of paper with a number on it, "400k universal or 500k black".

THERE'LL BE PEACE WHEN YOU ARE DONE
Over a couple days, Ecks takes time to rebuild the sentimental shotgun. He pours a lot of his heart and soul into the weapon and it shows. His craftsmanship is incredible.

When it's all ready, he heads off to get some magicked bullets, Shane volunteers to go too, he has a toy in mind as well.

...magic fun will be continued!

I put up five days of time elapsed in this post. Post anything you want to do in that time. Assume the magic trip happens towards the end.

What are you doing?

I Set a Course for Winds of Fortune

Ecks watches the Northern Gun crew come in with peak efficiency. When given the offer of another job he quickly turns to the others. "Anyone have any objections? ((assuming none of us are opposed to making money)) "Looks like we'll be taking your offer." he says, reading and then signing the NDA assuming there isn't anything out of the ordinary in the contract, passing the pad to his teammates for them to follow suit. He goes out to Victor and Noth. "Victor I know you're aboard but Noth, if you're looking for work, we are hiring...right now. Hurry up and sign. You've got two minutes. We've got a contract too. I'll grab two copies while your writing hand is still warm." he says showing them inside and bustling off to get the AAPS contracts.

Ecks comes back to the NG rep as everyone finishes signing. "I'm glad we've met your expectations. Are we friends enough now to have a name?" he says, returning her smile from earlier. I'm curious what they've got lined up. Only time will tell.

Don't You Cry No More (Victor)

After the NG rep is squared away he claps Victor on the shoulder as they watch the Black Bear fly away. "Well I tried, but there are other fish in the sea." he says in a consoling manner as if Victor had just been shot down after asking a girl on a date.

O'Grady's

"400k universal? That'll work. Send someone by to pick it up. How about the head unit?" He adds the question inferring about the mini GB.

Ecks wrote:Once Singer emerges it as if he suddenly remembers that this guy jumped out of his mother’s scrapbook. ”So, surreal to say the least. I wasn’t expecting to see you today but I’m glad you turned up. I see you’ve learned a few things.” Ecks says, extending a hearty handshake and a pleasant smile.


After exiting the suit, Victor tilts his head 90 degrees right and than left, ears touching his shoulders as he cracks his neck before taking the offered hand shake with a genuine smile, "Not sure who or what 'sir real' is, but seeing you does bring back memories, that's for certain!"

Ecks wrote:”So, you said you were looking for work? We can help you out there, but you might want to know a few things. We’ve been knee deep in demons and all sorts of unholy hell some of which still seems to be lingering. Weird things, man. Weird things...” he says resting a hand on Peta’s BB-6 holstered somewhat under his arm.

”Even here in town there’s a gang with some demonic ties that look for opportunities to pick a fight. Besides enmities, we run in the light as much as we can so to speak. No wetworks. We do our best to get along with the local law and have a good relationship with them. More or less we’re here to make an honest buck and expect team members to respect that, not that you wouldn’t.” he says adding the last part hoping to avoid sounding insulting as Victor likely still sees him as he used to be. ”The decision isn’t just mine, but the whole teams, but they are all pretty easy going. Though our jobs so far have sounded dull, they’ve been anything but. It is the magic zone after all. But who’s to say, we might all be snoring during the next job.”


"Honestly, I haven't had much of any experience with demons or 'weird things', but some actual action of any kind is better than the last 4 years I spent in the NG military. Blue over there has seen more action today than she did throughout my entire tour!", he laughs at the last before going on, "I'm completely on board with you about listening to the local law and keeping business honest, no worries there. Do you guys want to interview me or anything? I don't mind answer questions, so long as they aren't about my late night bed room activities!", again, Victor laughs at his own joke.

Ecks wrote:Finally, Ecks blurts out what he's been wanting to ask from the get go. "So, is everything ok back home? I'm still just surprised to see you. Is everyone alright?"


Victor looks a bit surprised and is slow to answer, "Welllll, uh, if you mean your family, yeah they were all fine the last I saw them. Your sis is the one who suggested I come out here and look for work with you actually. Someone was supposed to get in touch with you and let you know I was coming...but apparently that fell through...so.", it's Victor's turn to look uncomfortable and he clearly has more to say, but instead he comes out with, "Oh did you hear about Jimmy Hawthorne? He joined the army about the same time as me, but ended up as a grunt. Well he was killed in action when his unit was on patrol up north near Xitixic territory."


Maniacal Laugh wrote:"One more minute boss, it got hit hard. Particle beams maybe?"


Victor can't help but chime in, "Yeah, P-beams...see the scoring pattern? I'll say this, that suit has a great impact absorbing system, I barely felt a thing inside. Hell, if the damage read-out hadn't told me I was taking hits I might not have noticed!", assuming the guards don't stop him, Victor moves towards the female tech while talking to her, "Say, I don't suppose I could get a download of the battle ROM data of the time I spent inside it could I? Oh, and I dunno' if you are in charge of this sort of thing or not...but I have a much better name than 'Black Bear' for this gorgeous power suit. 'Puma'...what do you think?", Victor is very animated throughout this exchange.

Ecks is washed over with relief. Strange, I wonder what happened to Em's message. The name Jimmy Hawthorne takes a bit for him to remember. "The tall kid with the scraggly beard. Yeah I remember. That's too bad, he seemed nice. Why the CS decided to screw around with Tolkeen instead of those bugs I'll never know. he says shaking his head. Ecks looks in Drake's direction wondering if he was involved with Tolkeen. Even though Ecks supported the Coalition, he always thought the attack on Tolkeen was idiotic. It did a lot more damage to everyone than they realized.

Drake keeps quiet during the negotiations with the Northern Gun representative, though he nearly chuckles at the response to keeping the Black Bear. Drake watches Ecks sign the agreement, he takes the pad and signs as well. They pay well. Drake thinks as he passes the pad off. "We got anything lined up Ecks? Or is it a few days off for the crew?" Drake nods at Ecks with whatever answer he's given, before moving away from the group to take a much needed hot shower, the cold rain finally getting the best of him.

Once showered and dry Drake changes into a clean set of clothes from his bag and hangs his wet stuff to dry. Drake makes his way to the kitchen and eyes the Pecan pie. That man sure does love to bake. Drake thinks before helping himself to a slice of pie. Drake mulls over his next actions, coupling them with his recent actions and the not so great reunion with his one time savior. Drake sighs as he finishes his slice of pie. Damn good pie. Drake picks up his plate and washes it in the sink, before placing it in the drying rack. Drake chuckles to himself as he does so. Strange having a place to call home.

Drake heads back into the garage and grabs up the remains of his armor, setting it in a neat pile near Eck's workbench. Drake looks at the equipment around and formulates his plan. (See Tinkers thread; materials were purchased many moons ago.) Drake feels good working on his own project, it gives him a sense of purpose even if only for a few short hours.

If/When Ecks is around. "I left the armor for you to fix if you'd like. I actually would like to go and buy another suit. We can toss this one in the group gear pile for future issues if you'd like. Maybe store it in the Sled for emergencies. While I'm out do you need anything?" Drake approaches the non-functioning "Glitterboy Suit" and runs a hand across the suit. "Does this suit need a lot of work? I wouldn't mind piloting it. I actually had a bit of fun while in Victor's Blue Boy, though I am not a fan of it's weapon system... Ammo consumption is atrocious." Drake chuckles a little.

Once Drake is done with his personal project, He takes off on his bike to go into town and make some purchases.

@ Brianna

"Do you think if they're know about magic, they'll know about psychic things as well? It might be good for me to understand more about that stuff since I'm still learning about it."


Ecks feel reassured that Brianna is willing to help then prep. He is somewhere between amused and perplexed by her question. It's odd. Both with magic and technology you have to train but she apparently develops it naturally.

Well, if any place would I think there would be the most likely. In the past AAPS' leader was a member of the college so I never bothered spending much time here. I kinda regret that now. I bet you can find answers there though. You say your abilities just came to you? Sorry it's been a while, but we didn't know each other as well then. You found your sword when you came here too didn't you?"

@ Victor

"Yeah, that's Jimmy alright.", Victor clears his throat uncomfortably, "Soooo, when's the last time you heard from your sister and what did she have to say?".


((Rolls carried))

"I actually haven't heard from her in quite some time. But being so far away it can be hard. I need to send a message. You've spoken with her more recently than I have. he says, unsure of the hesitation in Victor's voice. Not sure what he's getting at but sounds like it's best left where it is. Still I would have expected to have heard from her by now.

Heading for the mystic quarter

Victor waits for Brianna to answer before asking, "Say, would you two mind if I tag along? It's my first time in MercTown...hell, it's the first major city I've been to outside of M-I in fact.", he looks from one to the other trying to mentally decide if they have some kind of relationship going on,"That is, if I'm not interrupting anything....", Victor just trails off there and waits for a reply.


"Sure, the ride's open to everyone." he says with a smile.

@Drake

"I left the armor for you to fix if you'd like. I actually would like to go and buy another suit. We can toss this one in the group gear pile for future issues if you'd like. Maybe store it in the Sled for emergencies. While I'm out do you need anything?" Drake approaches the non-functioning "Glitterboy Suit" and runs a hand across the suit. "Does this suit need a lot of work? I wouldn't mind piloting it. I actually had a bit of fun while in Victor's Blue Boy, though I am not a fan of it's weapon system... Ammo consumption is atrocious."


Ecks nods at Drake "Sure, not a problem. We've really been chewing through it. Hopefully the trench coats will help ease up on our repairs. As far as needing anything, I think we should get some mega damage restraints, like handcuffs. We aren't bounty hunters, but it'd be nice to have other options to restrain individuals. Beyond that, if there's anything you can think of by all means. With this other job they've got for us, I want to be better prepared. Ecks says scratch his head in thought.

As Drake moves to the odd glitterboy he scratches his chin. "I don't know much about it. I've put out some feelers, but not much yet. At worst we can put a different head on it I think. Will all your abilities work ok inside a suit? Either way, I agree with you. We need to get this suit going. I'd like to get back to last resort and see if our other suit is still there. Maybe we can hire a quick messenger to go take a look. I think there's a magic service that can do that. While we are in the mystic quarter we could check that out. You coming with us or heading elsewhere?"

Drake shrugs. "Don't know to be sure, I suppose it depends on the armor. The armor seems light enough for me to be able to use my psi-sword at the very least. So I've been thinking of purchasing a suit of EOD armor from GAW. Only problem I have is, the armor is really bulky. Would you be able to reduce the bulk of it without sacrificing protection? If not, I'll look into other suits. As for the Suit at Last Resort, worse case scenario I could drive down there and check. I was planning to hit up GAW and a few other shops in Merc Row. I could roll with you guys I suppose, then hit the spots I need later. While we're talking about stuff, I have an idea for spears or lances maybe, instead of spear heads... we put explosives. I can mount a few of them in a quiver on my bike and use them on the run." Drake says hoping Eck's can do it.

"So you'd be the guy to talk to about explosive spears. Good to know. I was originally going to take my bike, but if we're all going, probably the Sled." Drake answers. "So we need to find a head for this unit here and she'd likely be up to snuff. What about from that Redhawk, could we use that one?" Drake asks Ecks. I wonder what the suits capabilities are?

((rolls carried))

@Shane

"Get a notepad."


Ecks fetches his own notepad from his satchel, handing it to Shane. I wish I had time to study it more, but I've got too many irons in the fire already.

@ Brianna

Brianna nods. "Kind of. It's hard to explain, but basically, I wasn't born a psychic. " A smirk appears as she adds, "I'm getting the impression that's not how it usually happens?" Brianna considers going to the college, "Yeah, I can do that. I mean, the worst thing they can do is say they can't help me." Looking down at Maia, Bri adds, "The sword, Maia, belonged to my best friend, Francis, from back home. He died a little while after we got here and gave me the sword. We have a connection, I can feel where she is and she talks in my head sometimes." Brianna stops talking, it's clear she still a bit sad about losing her friend, but isn't trying to bring everyone else down. "Anyway," Bri continues "what kind of things are we going to be looking for?"


Ecks marvels at the capabilities of the sword. It can talk? And it's a she? I wonder if something is stuck in the sword or if it's alive somehow. Very odd. he wonders. Sensing the loss of her friend may still be a sore memory, he moves on to her other question.

"Well, my main concern is being able to damage supernatural foes. So, just weapons and such. It seems as though you need to be a magician or similar to use a lot of weapons that are effective against monsters." he says, obviously using the simple term of "monster" to describe anything with a supernatural quality. "But there are some things, like silver, that are also effective from what I've been reading." Ecks pauses and seems to be in thought. "The other concern I have is more challenging. If we have to deal with magic, we have almost no options. In particular I think something that can negate magic in some way would be critical. I think you, Drake and maybe Shane have some capacity to use items that may help us there. Of course we are on a budget, but anything along those lines even if only a one shot could prove to be useful. We can't prepare for everything but a few extra tools in our pockets could save us all."

@Drake

Drake shrugs. "Don't know to be sure, I suppose it depends on the armor. The armor seems light enough for me to be able to use my psi-sword at the very least. So I've been thinking of purchasing a suit of EOD armor from GAW. Only problem I have is, the armor is really bulky. Would you be able to reduce the bulk of it without sacrificing protection? If not, I'll look into other suits. As for the Suit at Last Resort, worse case scenario I could drive down there and check. I was planning to hit up GAW and a few other shops in Merc Row.

I can mount a few of them in a quiver on my bike and use them on the run." Drake says hoping Eck's can do it.


"Well, up to you, but I'd sooner put money into this suit. Have considered a Gladius like mine? Not bad and not too expensive. As far as explosive spears, I think that's certainly doable. What are your thoughts as far as portability in the field? Something collapsible? Either way, you can come with us or roam on your own. I've got business in the mystic quarter anyhow. Like I was speaking with Brianna about, we need to have some contingencies when it comes to monsters and magic. Maybe you've got some thoughts too. You've probably seen the most out of any of us." Ecks says in closing, stepping lightly on what seems a painful past. What he wrote in the note to Grey Blade was true. He wasn't sure what all transpired that has made the rift between cyber knights but he feels strongly that the order is more important than simply an monster extermination squad.

"So we need to find a head for this unit here and she'd likely be up to snuff. What about from that Redhawk, could we use that one?"


Ecks laughs out loud. "Well, you know... we could. That would be different. Let's try. Let me get critical repairs first. I've got a long list already. But if we can get this armor moving, it'll do more good than sitting here."

@Victor

Victor suddenly snaps his fingers rather loudly and virtually shouts, "Explosives! Yes, that is one thing I will need to pick up while we are out shopping.", he pauses a moment than wonders aloud, "I wonder if there's anyway to create a short range fusion charge launcher for Blue?". He shakes his head and focus on the three standing there (and likely giving him odd looks), "Sorry, random idea there. So....what sort of ride are we taking into town?", he grins as asks.


"I'm glad you asked!" the operator says, motioning to the Sled with both arms as if unveiling a super car.

Image

"We call it the Sled. The main chassis was an old helicopter, upfitted with MDC armor, a nuclear generator and NG hover units for multiple redundancies. I can set it back down safely with as much as a sixty percent turbine failure. We also added a force field and weapon hard points and pintle mounts for door gunners. It even has a winch. We actually designed it with power armor deployment and transport in mind." Ecks says with such confidence and enthusiasm some might think he was getting a sales commission. "While it's not a toe to toe fighter, it has an impressive feature list. Take a look at the H.U.D. Look familiar? It has a full electronics suite just like most robots and power armor. It's payload is pretty substantial as well." His pride in the machine is almost tangible.

"As far as any sort of explosives launcher, are you competent with explosives? It's been a very long time since we've dealt with explosives. We can certainly put something together, but do you think it'd be more effective than mini missiles? Tell me more about what you're thinking." he says, his head down and eyes unfocused listening intently to the details.

Victor's head swings from Ecks, to Drake, than back to Ecks again and his own face looks somewhat horrified. He closes his mouth loudly before speaking, his tone almost sorrowful, "Please tell me you aren't being serious? A Redhawk head unit...on a...mostly...Glitterboy frame?! That's...that's just not right Ecks." Victor shivers a bit and pulls a face as if he had just bit into a lemon.

Ecks wrote:"I'm glad you asked!" the operator says, motioning to the Sled with both arms as if unveiling a super car.

Victor quickly gets over his apparent distaste for what the two men were moments before suggesting once he gets a look at the heli-hover-personnel-carrier-gun-platform-thing in front of him. He blinks a few times before responding, "That isn't a modification Ecks...that's just building something out of nothing. It looks pretty solid though, I'll say that.". He grins and looks over his shoulder at Ecks, "What, no nose-art for her?", he says gesturing at The Sled.

Ecks wrote:"As far as any sort of explosives launcher, are you competent with explosives? It's been a very long time since we've dealt with explosives.

Victor nods, as serious now as he was on the battlefield earlier, "Trained in demo and demo disposal.". He looks at Drake and scrathes his head though, "I can't say I've ever had a need to put charges on the end of a spear before...but it's worth trying. Might need to head 20 or miles outside of the city walls to do some tests though. Oh, and I heard you talking about getting a new power suit earlier...if it's light, fast, & hand to hand combat you like I would suggest the NG-HX-002 Thunder Hound. I plan on picking one up once I'm done getting the Blue Boy finished.".

He continues talking to Ecks as the group begins boarding The Sled, "As for what I need...Ecks, have you ever seen the should launchers on a Triax make T-31 Super Trooper before? They look like pretty standard mini-missile launchers, but they're a bit to short and wide. What they actually are, is a fusion block...rocket, for lack of a better term. You can set the detonation time a lot like you would on a standard fusion block, damage and shaped charge are also pretty much identical. BUT, unlike a CS style fusion block, you don't have to walk up to your target to place it! I don't know if they use a mini-missile type engine or if they are air pressure launched, but those things can be launched a good 300' accurately. Each should on a T-31 has a dual launcher...I'm hoping to scavenge a single working launcher and mount it on the Blue Boys left shoulder. There's a number of other modifications I wanted to talk to you about, but that is probably the most difficult one to handle."

((Rolls Carried Over))

Drake looks at the mechanic for several long moments. "Most monsters are affected by silver, wood, and cold iron. Mundane weapons of these materials would do just fine. If you're looking for special ammo, I hear Triax has some anti-supernatural rounds, but I also hear that they're radioactive and dangerous to carry around. While you're hitting up the Magic Quarter, I could hit up the Weapons Bazaar and grab some silver knives or what not, and hit up the dealers for silver ammo for our conventional firearms, or I could get the stuff to make them myself I suppose. As for the Gladius, I never really considered it, I'll take a peak at them while we're out. It's been more than a few years since I've bought new armor for myself. Most of my gear was hand-me-downs and scavenge, So it'll be nice to have a new piece of equipment for once." Drake takes a minute to get a drink, before coming back to the conversation.

When Victor expresses his displeasure for the idea of attaching the Redhawk head to the "Strange" Glitteboy, Drake smirks. "I'm all ears if you have another fast way of completing the problem. I know it isn't the best fit, but it should do in a pinch. Personally if it was feasible to work the thing without a head, I'd be all about it. I prefer not wearing helmets, it let's people know who or what they're dealing with. Plus Demons hate knowing they've been beaten by a raggedy looking human." Drake smirks at the last comment.

Victor mulls this over for a moment, "Well, if you aren't worried about keeping the suit environmentally sealed, it might be possible to modify one of these force field belts into producing just a small 'bubble field' over your head instead of even using a helmet. Ecks, do you think that is possible?"

"Possible? Well maybe. I just hate putting that Naruni junk in perfectly good armor." Ecks says, his bias clearly evident. "But again you're talking about parts we don't have. First we can see if anyone in the Magic Quarter might be able to bring the other glitterboy we have back from Last Resort. Then we can see if we can identify the armor we do have, which O'Grady may or may not be able to help us with. There are a few other places to check here in town too." Ecks says, weighing different options in his head. "Either way, I think we've got a lot on our plates."

AFTER business in concluded in the mystic quarter, Ecks sits down to fix all the damage accrued during the reacquisition of the Black Bear as well as make some improvements. With a list of projects in front he cracks his knuckles and grabs his tools, striding towards his patients with single-minded focus. "Alright, let's get to it."

After receiving parts ordered from Northern Gun he begins directing any willing victims...er cheerful assistants, Ecks calls out orders like a general on the battlefield. Bright flashes of light from torches and welders accent the booming din of mechanical carnage. Breaking every couple hours, he keeps cold drinks handy for the team and sneaks some of Bean's wonderful pecan pie when no one's looking.

((If you'd prefer me to do a full write up, I certainly can, but I figured a more brief monologue may benefit everyone. Here are the pure nuts and bolts of repair and modification.))

Repair Math and Totals wrote:
Ecks as level 9 Operator gets 9 attempts per 8 hours and can work 2 shifts per day for a total of 18 attempts per day. Repairs are done first, then mods. Items are listed in order along with cost.

Drake adds 3 Attempts per period up to two shifts per day for a total of 6 per day

Brianna adds +2 Attempts on electronics per period up to two shifts per day for a total of 4 per day (using her on the rushed wiring on the Sled if she is willing)

Victor adds 1 Attempt per period up to two shifts per day for a total of 2 per day

Noth adds 1 Attempt per period up to two shifts per day for a total of 2 per day

Shane add (x) Attempts per period

Ecks will be working 2 shift a day. Other characters can choose to stay or go as they please.

A full work detail provides 32 plus Shane's attempts.

Ecks wrote:"Possible? Well maybe. I just hate putting that Naruni junk in perfectly good armor." Ecks says, his bias clearly evident. "But again you're talking about parts we don't have. First we can see if anyone in the Magic Quarter might be able to bring the other glitterboy we have back from Last Resort. Then we can see if we can identify the armor we do have, which O'Grady may or may not be able to help us with. There are a few other places to check here in town too." Ecks says, weighing different options in his head. "Either way, I think we've got a lot on our plates."



"I'd hardly call Naruni equipment junk. Besides, a force field taking a few hits early on in a fight would reduce down time in repairs later on!"

Ecks listens to both Victor's and Shane's reasoning. After each lay out sound arguments, his face takes on a serious look.

"I hear what you're saying. I admit, they have great performance specs. he says, making the concession. He walks over to the Sled, resting his arm on the still damaged pylon."There are two qualities that make good battle field machines in my book; dependability and ease of maintenance. Naruni gear is hard to work on, intentionally so. It's made to be disposable. It can be repaired but at more money and time than other armor. Not much of a concern when you're around a concrete jungle, but out away from things I'd rather not have to carry my weight in spares."

Ecks' voice picks up heat as he contiunes."And then there's the former; reliability. The reason we're going to be working on the Sled is due to equipment failure by Naruni. Well I say failure but it was really either incompetence or... sabotage. Either way it still stacks up the same. It almost killed several of us. If it can be used and dropped in a scrap bin where it belongs once it's usefulness is gone, sure. But, as far as I'm concerned I won't be betting my life on their equipment again if I can help it."

His posture softens and a gentler face returns to him. "And if you thought O'Grady's counter manners are bad, you've not been to Naruni. I'd walk a mile over busted glass just to be scowled at by that old goat before I'd walk back into that Naruni store."

Ecks marvels at the capabilities of the sword. It can talk? And it's a she? I wonder if something is stuck in the sword or if it's alive somehow. Very odd. he wonders. Sensing the loss of her friend may still be a sore memory, he moves on to her other question.

"Well, my main concern is being able to damage supernatural foes. So, just weapons and such. It seems as though you need to be a magician or similar to use a lot of weapons that are effective against monsters." he says, obviously using the simple term of "monster" to describe anything with a supernatural quality. "But there are some things, like silver, that are also effective from what I've been reading."/b] Ecks pauses and seems to be in thought. [b]"The other concern I have is more challenging. If we have to deal with magic, we have almost no options. In particular I think something that can negate magic in some way would be critical. I think you, Drake and maybe Shane have some capacity to use items that may help us there. Of course we are on a budget, but anything along those lines even if only a one shot could prove to be useful. We can't prepare for everything but a few extra tools in our pockets could save us all."


Brianna nods at Ecks. "Silver is definitely a good thing to have. Vampires are hurt by silver for sure." Gesturing to Maia, "Weapons like her will be helpful too, but they might be expensive." Brianna listens to Ecks talking about magic and she says "This might be a silly question, but is there some kind of technology we could use to help negate magic?" Brianna look intrigued by the idea that she could use items that could help with their magic issues. "That would be SO awesome if I could!" When Ecks says it never hurt to have a few extra tools, Brianna nods in agreement. "My dad used to say that he'd rather have something and not need it than need it and not have it."

"That's a good saying! As far as technology, I'm hoping we can find out in the Mystic Quarter." Remembering that she is still acclimating to the time, he adds, "There are technowizards who combine the two. From speaking with different magic users, you still need a certain... je ne sais quoi, to use them." he says smiling, flittering his fingers in the air as he says "Je ne sais quoi". "I'm hoping they can help me out though. They are a clever bunch."

Ecks checks his pockets and satchel for his normal gear.

"At any rate I'm hoping they may take a shine to you. And you seem to have some familiarity or at least affinity with these things. I do appreciate the help. You know it's weird going there myself. We might as well be flying to the moon." he continues, a smile belying his complete unfamiliarity with anything magic.

"Say Ecks, when I first got to your place here there was a tall, skinny, dark skinned guy making pies....uh, I think he said his name was Bean. And I am pretty sure it was him in the G-B standing guard when we hot tailed it back here not long ago. Where did he run off too?".

Victor looks to Brianna at some point on the groups shopping trip, "Brianna right? I'm Victor Singer, nice to officially meet you when we are not being shot at.", he smiles and offers his hand for a shake. He looks over at Drake next and offers his hand again, asking, "And I didn't catch your name mate, you are?".

"I understand it. I just don't want to rely on it. As far as a loan, depends on how much you need. A coupe hundred thousand I can probably swing, but more then that may be a challenge. I double my interest rate if it's spent on Naruni gear though." Ecks says with a joking grin. You know, he might not know I'm joking considering how we got along in the past."That was a joke... I won't charge you interest. As far as installing it, I think I did install one quite a while back. But I know for certain I installed the forcefield in the Sled and no one has any idea where it came from. So to answer your question, I can do the calculation for field loads and polarization." he adds, adjusting his sunglasses with panache.

"The tall, dark skinned guy is Beanpole. He's a good cook. I kind of expected to see him myself, but he might be in town. After our last gig, he needed some down time I think. We all did." Some of his levity dies off. It's clear it didn't go as planned.

Victor fishes around in his inside jacket pocket and finally pulls out a list and passes it over to Ecks, "That's a list of stuff I need and-or want to get my hands on for upgrading and just general resupply. I have no idea what costs run here in MercTown, so I just went off what I can remember of the standard shelf prices."

Ecks looks at the list and rubs the back of his neck. "Well to be honest, some of it is pretty easy but some of it may be a trick. The overseas stuff can be hard to get your hands on." he hands the list back to Victor. "I'll loan you 150,000 credits. That should give you some to play with as well. As far as shopping, I'll let you handle that yourself. It'll help get familiar with Merctown anyhow. The Naruni shop is inside the city. I can drop you off. But I'm not joking that it'd be best NOT to mention Double A Professional Services while you're there. There are also several hoverbikes if you want to bop around on your own."

Shane wrote:He's making an effort to be talkative. Victor he doesn't know at all, and he offers him one of his hands. Now that he's outside of his armor two interesting facts are revealed: Shane is a very snappy dresser. He has a good sense of style. He also can't take his helmet off apparently, and even though it's not a full helmet one can see where the flesh has healed around the ceramic and metal. The other thing? Both of his hands appear to be tattooed red. Either way, he offers one to Victor.

"Shane." He says simply. "Psi and rifle specialist."


A bit belatedly Victor responds to the well dressed juicer, shaking the offered hand, "Victor Singer, power armor pilot & anti heavy armor specialist, nice to meet you Shane. Nice tats!", he exclaims, his own tattoos fairly evident as he has his entire right arm down to his wrist and then some done, as well as work on his left arm down half way down that forearm. "So, psi and rifle?...I get the second one, but not the first."


Ecks wrote:Ecks looks at the list and rubs the back of his neck. "Well to be honest, some of it is pretty easy but some of it may be a trick. The overseas stuff can be hard to get your hands on." he hands the list back to Victor. "I'll loan you 150,000 credits. That should give you some to play with as well. As far as shopping, I'll let you handle that yourself. It'll help get familiar with Merctown anyhow. The Naruni shop is inside the city. I can drop you off. But I'm not joking that it'd be best NOT to mention Double A Professional Services while you're there. There are also several hoverbikes if you want to bop around on your own."


Victor nods appreciatively, "Thanks for the loan boss.". He spends a moment mulling over the last bit though, scratching his head, "Uh...first off I wont be wearing the trench with the group logo into Naruni...no offense. And I would be happy to borrow the bike, but I have never learned how to drive one. Think you guys could just drop me off 3 or 4 blocks out from the Naruni shop than just pick me up later? Oh, and what's a good radio channel for in-town chatter?", Victor pulls out his comm-headset and hand-held radio.

During the conversations about Naruni Force Fields Drake sighs. "I appreciate the thought guys, but no thanks. Never trusted force fields to do the work of solid armor." When Victor holds his hand out, Drake makes note and extends his hand as well and shakes. "Drake, pleasure to meet you. Nice power armor by the way. Not a fan of the weapon system, but nice suit anyways."


Note:
Drake will work all the shifts Ecks' does, offering any assistance needed.

"Good idea. They weren't very receptive the last time I was in there and I'm sure they remember us. As far as the radio, let me see your set. It's an encrypted channel." Ecks takes Victor's radio and plugs in his mini computer and loads in their custom encryption. He then tests the channel. "One, two, three, Alpha, Bravo, Charley." he radios from the Sled's unit. Alright, looks like you're good to go." The radio is handed back as Ecks puts his computer away.

Once the repairs are completed, a mad glee can be seen behind the oeperator's sunglasses. Setting up his computer and gathering up all of his micrometers, dial gauges and calipers he sets out make plans and blue prints. They've done a lot of talking, now the rubber will meet the road.

All Mod are done "Taking Our Time" with most also working up blueprints first (annotated in the descriptions). 46 total attempts. This would be 4-8 days depending on who helps.
