Re: 3: Taking Stock
"It does.  A pair of front-facing blasters and a dual cannon on a turret.  They're stock, and right at the edge of legal limits, but they'll do for now.  What I'm really worried about is the hyperdrive, which is only class three.  That's the first thing that will need to be replaced, so we'll need someone that knows what they're doing under the engine block."

"I hope one of the people Splynn has coming can handle it. Since we seem to be waiting around I might as well take a look at the weapons systems and see what I can do with them."

OOC: Does the turret and forward firing lasers count as capital class or starship class?

Re: 3: Taking Stock
Splynn chuckles, "Well, I'm glad to see that you're at least eager to get started.  However, the ship isn't even on this planetoid.  I think you will all be very surprised to find just how far from inhabited space we are right now.  As for the state of the ship's systems," he returns to his chair behind the desk, "They are perfectly adequate.  And, to be bluntly honest, there isn't the time, you don't have the resources, and I have spent enough on this little business venture.  You'll take the ship as you find it, and you leave in two days.  That will be just enough time for us to get to the impound yards where the ship is kept and send you on your way."

As if on cue, the sound of an arriving elevator can be heard outside.  "And I believe that will be your new team members now."

OOC: If they're stock and legal, they're Starfighter class.  Capital ship weapons on a freighter are a big time no-no.  Doesn't stop some people, though. ;)

"So the ship isn't here yet. I was hoping to at least familiarize myself with the turret's systems. For the moment I will content myself with meeting the others you said were coming to join us."

OOC: If I get my hands on enough creds I will be doing some serious upgrades to the turret and maybe the forward firing lasers. Maybe even add a missile tube or two.

Strickland will enter the main lounge, following Mr Selous no doubt.  He will stay close to a wall, observing as much as possible, drinking in the surroundings once more.

23:57, Today: Timothy Strickland rolled 16 using 2 dice and +2 pips with the WEG Classic system with rolls of 6,{Wild}6(+2). Perception.

Re: 3: Taking Stock
As the doors opened, Harry stood to one side of the elevator, not the first one out. It was better to enter new situations warily. He accepted what his senses told him, processed, observed, and listened.

After a few moments, he stepped out of the elevator and moved to raise his hands to shake with the new "team".

"Names Harry Selous, big game hunter. Looks like we'll be working together till we pay off our debts."

Roice turns and glares at Splynn, but doesn't say anything.

He steps in front of the desk and says, "Gentlemen, please come in.  Have a seat if you like.  I'm Roice Delfinn, captain of the Sun Tracker.  You've met Mister Haskel," he motions to Garret.

"May I also introduce Jared Verik and Bulyip."

Re: 3: Taking Stock
The atmosphere is much more cordial than Sparks expected.  He raises a hand to Roice in greeting.

"Watcha mate!  They call me 'Sparks'.  Glad to see you're a friendly bunch!"

Sparks turns to Garret with a nod, "So you're the Gun Bunny eh?" he says with a grin. "I'm a Comm's Specialist, in Frigates I was. What where you in Garret?"

This guy was obviously navy.  His gait and dameanor could mean little else.  This was going to be an easy gig and Sparks began to relax.

"Interdictor Cruisers."

Garret didn't say anything else, as he didn't want to talk about his Imperial Service.

Re: 3: Taking Stock
She was the last to leave the elevator and she looked around with mild curiosity, they sure looked like a weird bunch of crew. Rather scruffy looking actually and all male. She was all to aware of how she would look to them, dressed up in her dancing outfit. Still she walked in as if she couldn't care less with a false act of confidence that she did not feel and greeted the beings in the room.

"I am Agial'ili, I was selected to help repair the vessel"

From the look on their faces she was sure that nobody was going to believe her. Her race did not have a reputation of being any good with technical stuff.

"What systems are you familiar with Agialili?"

He was certain he had said the name wrong, though he tried to get it right. He was glad to have something else to talk about that didn't involve his enslavement to the empire.

Re: 3: Taking Stock
She was more tense then she had thought and a bit unsure. It was hard to know his status in this enterprise but considering the state of his clothing and the fact that he did not carry a gun she assumed that his predicament was not dissimilar then hers. So she stated the fact without adding honorifics as master and such.

"I have been trained according to the Coruscant Degree of Excellence Program, my specialty is in Starship Repair with side courses of Computer and Droid operation."

She omitted her extracurricular courses in Security protocols, thinking that the less people knew about that part the better.

"Interesting. From what captain Roice tells me, the ship is something of an antique. There won't be a shortage of things to upgrade on it. If any of you need medical attention for any reason in the future, let me know. That reminds me, what kind of medical station does your ship have?"

Re: 3: Taking Stock
Roice shakes his head.  "Stock, it's all stock.  Stock autokitchen, stock beds, stock head, think 'off the shelf.'  She's not an old model, but she is, ah, gently used.  There will be things we, uh, I will want upgraded on her," he shoots a look at Splynn, "but we'll work that out later."

He looks over the bunch.  "There are quarters enough for 10 comfortably, though I suspect we'll want to expand the consumable supplies with something more palatable than nutrient paste and bio-bars, especially those of use that have only been eating prison mess hall offerings.

"As for crew," he throws another quick glance at Splynn, "I'm certain we'll fall into respective niches.  Given our backgrounds--and let me clarify that I don't necessarily know your background, nor do I necessarily need to, but considering the source, let's assume that we can use our imaginations--given our backgrounds, the possibility for disagreement and head-butting is high.  I won't demand, nor expect, military precision, but I will run a tight ship.  We've got a job to do, and I can't speak for everyone, but I feel like I've been given a second chance here."

He looks at Splynn.  "I'd had to think that something as petty as personality clashes could endanger that second chance."

" Sound a might high strung for something that aint happen yet. Figure most of us were in the union so if things were going to come to blood they would have by now. As for the new folks they seem likable enough. And well every one knows they don't make folks more likable then Jared Verik.  That's me for those just joining us" He said with a casual smile and nod to Agial'ili

Re: 3: Taking Stock
the beginnings of a smile played at the edge of his mouth. All of them seemed to have some sort of skill that would help while on board the ship. Harry just liked killing things.

"I can probably handle one of the weapon systems well enough. Though I'd guess I'm more of an anti-personnel sort of guy myself."

He had a realization and turned to Splynn, "Are we going to get any guns or equipment before we go? Or do you expect us to do everything with just our clothes and a stock space ship?"

Re: 3: Taking Stock
Smiling with a wide mouth grin, he's rather enjoying all of this. With quite a few new faces, Bulyip isn't too particularly frightened by them since they came in so cordial and even particularly friendly and helpful in their greetings.

Having made a short round of the office, Bulyip ends up walking up to the Twi'lek, saying, "I had a friend who was twi'lek once. But he got eaten by a sarlacc. I was friends with him before he died though." He looks up at her looking her over with some interest.

In reply to Bulyip (msg #73):

She smiled in a studied shyly manner towards the man who had smiled towards her and made what appeared to be a joke.

Then she looked at the small reptillian who had moved her way and spoken to her with some interest. His was a kind she had not met before. "Eaten by a Sarlac you say? No idea what a Sarlac is but it sounds horrible, I am sorry about your loss. It is always sad to loose a friend."

Re: 3: Taking Stock
Splynn stands up and motions for everyone to get up as well.  "This is a conversation you could be having just as easily while we're en route to the ship you are all so eager to check out," he says.  "So, come along, we're leaving."

You follow him out to the foyer, where an elevator is waiting.  It's one of the blank, featureless models like Agial'ili, Selous, and Strickland rode up in.  "All aboard," Splynn says.  His voice loses the conversational tones he was using earlier and he continues, coldly,  "There will be guards waiting to escort you, discreetly, to my ship.  Keep your heads down, make no more noise than you need to, and don't think that our cozy little arrangement gives you carte blanche to start acting like free men.  You are all still prisoners until you're off this rock and indentured to me every second of your time afterwards until our deal is concluded.  I expect you to remember what you all owe me and not disappoint me with uncouth behavior."

He waits for you all to get in the elevator.
