The cargo bay is set up in sectional zones with movable walls, such that each zone can be configured for gravity, temperature, atmosphere content and pressure, and security. There's a large sectional floor hatch, part of which can be opened in quadrants as well as the entire floor.

There is also an overhead crane system, and a pair of grav-jacks inset into the walls.

OOC: I see Luise rolled for the cargo, but doesn't look like she ever posted her results, and I missed posting the results...


DATE 1107.152 IR

Ship normally has 92 tons of cargo space, but heading to Dinomn is a Jump-4, so it will require two full fuel bladders, which take up 66 tons of that cargo space, leaving room for only 26 tons of cargo.

Looks like passengers might be necessary after all.


It only takes Luise a day to find a buyer--Carstairs Imports, and that's probably due to waiting for the authorities to clear the ship, mostly because it's not a known quantity in this area.


Luise rolled 12--sell pharmaceuticals; cost was 4,000Cr per ton, 10 tons. Sold for  110% = 44,000Cr.

Luise rolled 10--sell mixed cargo; cost was 4,000Cr per ton; 8 tons. Sold for 110% = 32,000Cr.

Luise rolled 12--sell consumables; cost was 4,000Cr per ton; 5 tons. Sold for 110% = 22,000Cr.

Total made: 98,000Cr.

Available speculative cargo:

             Advanced Vehicles: 25 tons;   180,000Cr per ton.
               Precious Metals:  4 tons;    50,000Cr per ton.
                Petrochemicals: 20 tons;    10,000Cr per ton.
                Petrochemicals: 10 tons;    10,000Cr per ton.
              Advanced Weapons: 25 tons;   150,000Cr per ton.
              Advanced Weapons:  5 tons;   150,000Cr per ton.
                      Vehicles: 40 tons;     5,000Cr per ton.
             Basic Consumables: 60 tons;     2,000Cr per ton.
             Crystals and Gems:  5 tons;    20,000Cr per ton.
          Illegal Biochemicals: 20 tons;    50,000Cr per ton.
          Illegal Biochemicals: 10 tons;    50,000Cr per ton.
   Advanced Manufactured Goods:  5 tons;   100,000Cr per ton.
                  Radioactives:  3 tons; 1,000,000Cr per ton.
Exotics (psychotic sculptures):  7 tons;    75,000Cr per ton.


She then began pricing new cargo... there's no specific destination intended.

Luise rolled 18--cost of advanced vehicles (25 tons @ 180,000Cr each). x55% = 13,750,000Cr. Bargain price! Can you afford that? That would take up all of your remaining cargo space.

Luise rolled 15--precious metals (4 tons @ 50,000Cr each). 75% = 45,000Cr. Decent profit margin. You could probably squeeze these into the passenger staterooms.

Luise rolled 14--petrochemicals-1 (20 tons @ 10,000Cr each). x80% = 190,000Cr. Reasonable margin for profit.

Luise rolled 11--petrochemicals-2 (10 tons @ 10,000Cr. each). x95% = 100,000Cr. Little margin for profit.

Luise rolled 20--advanced weapons-1 (25 tons @ 150,000Cr. each). x40% = 1,500,000Cr. Huge bargain! It'll take up all of your cargo space, though.

Luise rolled 14--advanced weapons-2 (5 tons @ 150,000Cr each). x80% = 600,000Cr. Decent margin for profit; you might be able to put these in a passenger stateroom.

Luise rolled 14--vehicles (40 tons @ 5,000Cr each). x100% = 200,000Cr. Not enough room for it; little margin for profit.

Luise rolled 17--basic consumables (60 tons @ 2,000Cr each). x80% = 96,000Cr. Not enough room for it.

Luise rolled 19--crystals and gems (5 tons @ 20,000Cr each). x50% = 80,000Cr. Another bargain! Again, these could be stored in a passenger stateroom.

Luise rolled 14--advanced manufactured goods (5 tons @ 100,000Cr each). x80% = 400,000Cr. Decent margin.

Luise rolled 12--radioactives (3 tons @ 1,000,000Cr each). x90% = 2,700,000Cr. Not a great profit margin, but high price and small amount might make it feasible. It can be stored in a passenger stateroom as well. It's not normally considered Hazardous Cargo as it is shipped with shielding and seals.

Luise rolled 20--exotics (7 tons @ 75,000Cr each). x40% = 210,000Cr. Bargain!? The buyer seems desperate to get rid of these. Depending on the actual breakdown, might fit in passenger staterooms. One 7-ton sculpture won't, but seven 1-ton sculptures could.


OOC: I think I finally got the numbers right.

So just how much money does the ship have to spend?


Nobody has actually decided what cargo you are going to purchase, or actually purchased it and arrange to get it to the ship.

Luise rolled 15--precious metals (4 tons @ 50,000Cr each). 75% = 180,000Cr. Decent profit margin. You could probably squeeze these into the passenger staterooms. BOUGHT! Moved to aft starboard passenger stateroom, locked and secured.

CARGO MANIFEST UPDATE

This was all in the Dust Runner before it was traded for the Frumious Bandersnatch. It was subsequently transferred from the old ship to the new ship's cargo hold.

You probably won't be able to get full price for this cargo since you are so far off the beaten path, so to speak, and there isn't yet a regular space lane/travel route going through the region. On the other hand, you just did save their bacon...

  4 tons of precious metals:   180,000
25 tons of advanced weapons: 1,500,000
    5 tons of crystals/gems:    50,000
7 tons of exotic sculptures:   210,000
                             _________
            TOTAL PURCHASES: 1,940,000


SALE
     Precious Metals: 13:01, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 14 using 2d6+6 ((2,6)). = 115%
Fairly reasonable rate. Could probably do better elsewhere but it's a good profit and gets the ingot out from underfoot in the quarters.
     Advanced Weapons: 13:08, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 20 using 2d6+8 ((6,6)). = 145%
Since the Arden attack, Advanced Weapons sale are going through the roof! You make almost 300% profit! However, if you want to give them away, you can.
     Crystals/gems: 13:11, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 9 using 2d6+6 ((1,2)). = 85% NO SALE.
You will make a decent profit on these if you sell them here, but that would be undervaluing them. They don't take up much space, so keeping them to sell later is the better option.
     Exotic Sculptures: 13:13, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 11 using 2d6+6 ((3,2)). = 100%
You'll make a decent profit on these and it'll get them out of your way since they are now placed all over the ship.

TOTAL CREDITS GAINED FROM SALES:

  4 tons of precious metals:   207,000Cr.
25 tons of advanced weapons: 2,175,000Cr.
7 tons of exotic sculptures:   210,000Cr.
                             _________
                TOTAL SALES: 2,592,000Cr.



CARGO PURCHASE
     13:49, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 11 using 2d6+4 ((5,2)). She has no problem finding a supplier. They are practically lining up to do business with the Frumious Bandersnatch. Some are interested in the prestige, some just want to make money before the next attack, and some just want to unload cargo that they fear Arden might confiscate.

PASSENGERS: None.
     In spite of the recent attack by Arden, no one is willing to pull up roots and head off into the unknown, particularly since your destinations are still within striking distance of Arden, and Foreven is still a BIG UNKNOWN.

MAIL: 15 tons, 75,000Cr.
     One going to Quare, one to Tharber, one to Faisal.

FREIGHT: None.
     There is simply no regular trade going to any of these places.

CARGO: Yes.
     This is speculative cargo... there's no guarantee that you'll be able to sell it at your next destination, or the one after that or the one after that... etc. As long as you don't carry perishables, that's not really an issue... other than that you aren't making any money off of it.

There is literally more available than you can afford or carry.

Common Electronics: 12 tons @ 20,000Cr base for 90% -- 216,000Cr.
Common Industrial: Goods 11 tons @ 10,000Cr base for 70% -- 70,000Cr.
Common Manufactured Goods: 6 tons @ 20,000Cr base for 65% -- 78,000Cr.
15:15, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 10,14,15 using 2d6+7,2d6+7,2d6+7 ((1,2,1,6,5,3)).

Common Raw Materials: 5 tons @ 5,000Cr base for 55% -- 13,750Cr.
Common Consumables: 5 tons @ 500Cr base for 45% -- 1,125Cr.
Common Ore: the ship isn't a bulk ore carrier, so don't have the room or equipment for this.
15:16, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 17,19 using 2d6+7,2d6+7 ((4,6,6,6)).

Advanced Electronics: 3 tons @ 100,000Cr base for 45% -- 135,000Cr.
Advanced Machine Parts: 1 ton @ 75,000Cr base for 70% -- 52,500Cr.
Advanced Manufactured Goods: 6 tons @ 100,000Cr base for 75% --450,000Cr.
15:18, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 19,14,13 using 2d6+7,2d6+7,2d6+7 ((6,6,6,1,3,3)).

Advanced Vehicles: the ship doesn't really have the room for these.
Cybernetics: 6 tons @ 250,000Cr base for 75% -- 1,125,000Cr.
Medical Supplies: 6 tons @ 5,000Cr base for 65% -- 19,500Cr.
Vehicles: the ship doesn't really have the room for these.
15:24, Today: StarMaster, on behalf of Adriannah Orilliah, rolled 13,15,16 using 2d6+7,2d6+7,2d6+7 ((5,1,4,4,4,5)).

Those are the options that Adriannah has found. She has to decide which she'll buy. Total cargo space available is still 125.5 tons.

After doing a bit of research on Quare, Thanber and Faisal, there's not enough information on them to make a really education determination.

Quare could use water and oxygen and food, and industrial products.

Thanber needs water and oxygen as well, but there's no gas giant in the system, so you may need to buy collapsible fuel tanks to get from Quare to Faisal. Refueling on Thanber will be expensive because it's a corporate monstrosity. While they have goods to sell, expect them to be expensive, too.

Faisal's tech level has been deteriorating due to mismanagement by the landowners, so any tech is needed.

SUBTOTALS:76 2,265,875Cr.
Minus Government Subsidies: 1,250,000Cr.
GRAND TOTAL: 1,015,875Cr.

The government subsidies are an incentive for Luise to take all outstanding cargo so that there's nothing left in port to be destroyed or confiscated if Arden comes back and wins. Also, by giving the money to the people, that's less left in the treasury for the invaders to steal. It's also their way of thanking you for the unexpected but timely rescue. If you hadn't appeared when you did and driven off the Arden ships, no doubt all the Tremous Dex ships would have been destroyed and the government would have had to surrender or face the threat of orbital bombardment.

While the drop tanks themselves will only cost 24,000Cr (12,000 each for a 60-ton tank), retrofitting the tanks to the Bandersnatch's hull will cost 2.4MCr.

The collapsible fuel tanks (three 40-ton tanks) cost twice what the drop tanks cost, but don't have to installed because all that extra hardware is built into the tank. So, 16,000Cr. each for 3 tanks.

However, letting the shipyard techs onto the Bandersnatch to examine the shield apparatus is sufficient incentive for them to trade the drop tanks and installation, as well as the collapsible fuel tanks for the opportunity. At least one of the techs figures out the principle; apparently, he's been working on his own approach for several years now. Depending on  how long it takes for Arden to get back to them, the shields should get installed on the Tremous Dex ships... if they get them working.
