Re: Dark Side of the Moon 1-3 (Investigation)
You go with him to the control room, but the thumb drive is now gone.  He looks around for a minute, but it is nowhere in sight.

Then you take him to the videos and show him the video of Blirdor the dralasite with S'Limmk there.

He nods.  "Yes, I think that's the one, though they all look alike to me."

"Sirs, with your permission, I could head to one of the exits while you check to see if the Dralasite is still in the building?"

"absolutely. And be quick." Looking back at the screen krilik wonders if building security could be of help. Opening his com link he calls up security and tries to get them to lock down the building and assist in locating their subject.

You are notified within minutes that the dralasite exited the building quite some time ago.

Re: Dark Side of the Moon 1-3 (Investigation)
S'Krllk  muses a moment before speaking, "If the drive is gone, wouldn't the equipment be functional and ready for broadcast? Yet, there seems to be a lack of initiative towards making any broadcasts at all."
Again, S'Krllk examines the broadcast equipment, and this time he will attempt to power it up.

GM Heath:
The Vrusk pauses as if contemplating.  "You are too late," he says.  "A relay device was already discovered in this room.  But it could have been left by anyone.  Vrusk technicians pass through here all the time."  Then he looks at your non-Vrusk companions and corrects himself.  "Well, almost anyone," he says in a tone of disapproval.

The other Vrusk says, "We need this equipment up and running again in one hour so we can broadcast the news and situational comedies."

"For them to get their aggressions out because of, well, the riots," the third Vrusk says apologetically.

The older, more prejudiced Vrusk says, "If you can find the person who sent it or give us some assurance in the next hour that our broadcasts will be safe, we can reward you.  10,000 credits can be arranged."


GM Heath:
The Vrusk looks with unabashed prejudism at Hammer and then answers, though he speaks to Kri'lik and S'Krllk.  "The relay device has been taken by police, but it had to relay to somewhere?  Where?  And who?  You can review security cameras over the last 24 hours if you want, but that won't really get you far in an hour.  S'Limmk has been reviewing the tapes in Room 240, and security is checking everyone leaving the building.  The police took the relay device to Room 165, our security room, and are examining it there.  Meanwhile, all non-Vrusk are being rounded up and interrogated in Room 175 if they were in the building at all in the time prior to the broadcast."

That last comment probably explains the security figures you noticed rounding the corner a few minutes ago.

"Like we said," says the second Vrusk to everyone, "We only have one hour."

The third Vrusk looks at his watch.  "Well, technically, we have 68 minutes."

OOC: So potential options are go to room 240, room 165, or 175.  An approximate timer will begin below.


68 Minutes


"Thinking back on the situation the thumb drive must be the relay device that was taken to room 165. We know which dralasite did it but he has already left the building." While security is still on the line Kri'lik asks for identification on the dralasite. Im sure some sort of ID check or facial recognition software was working as people entered and exited the building.

Re: Dark Side of the Moon 1-3 (Investigation)
Security confirms it was Blirdor, though you have to wonder why he would go to the control room if this Vrusk was doing his dirty work.

OOC: You should probably go report back your results (confidence in your result will be key to getting the reward).

Desiraye looks at her her watch and steps up to S'Krllk and Kri'Lik, "Sirs!  Our time is short.  I think we need to report our findings!"

Re: Dark Side of the Moon 1-3 (Investigation)
You find the three Vrusk executives near the media relations door not far from the control room.

"We are almost time to broadcast," says the third Vrusk.  "Did you find out who did this? Is our broadcast of the situational comedies going to be safe?"

The older Vrusk looks down at him disapprovingly.  "What did you find?" he says.

Re: Dark Side of the Moon 1-3 (Investigation)
Since no one else steps forward, Hammer speaks:  "We discovered that a dralasite named Blirdor forced a Vrusk named Semmoins to plant a thumb drive in the control room.  If you took out the thumb drive you should be safe for your continued broadcasts."

Re: Dark Side of the Moon 1-3 (Investigation)
The older Vrusk had been looking at Kri'lik and S'krllk for an answer, and looks surprised that Hammer steps forward.  Nevertheless, he says, "Good.  Of course it was the dralasite.  And we did remove a thumb drive.  We shall have to inspect it further."

He motions to the second Vrusk, who pulls a briefcase from the wall.  "Here is your reward, as promised."  The briefcase contains 10,000 credits, and he hands it to Kri'lik.

The third Vrusk says, "Thank you for your help.  Now, we have to get busy getting these programs broadcast."  They seem to have lost interest in you as they turn to their headsets and phones to give the signal to begin the broadcasts.

Desiraye smiles when the briefcase is handed over to Kri'lik by the other Vrusk for their work.  "Very good work again sirs!"

"Indeed, a job well done everyone." Once out of sight of the Vrusks he adds, "Now we just have to track this draselite down."

Hammer says, "We better not advertise we're carrying that much cash around.  Do we stash it back at our place?  Or should we go report our findings now?"

Kri'lik begins to do a search of any networks he has available for the dralasite in question.

"We don't say crap about any kind of money we got!  Th onformation we can pass on and we start from ther.  Honestly, I think we should split up the moeny between us so it isn't laying around for anyone to take.  All of us earned those credits and I don't think we should risk it being taken for someone who didn't earn it.

I know I'm broke after we got our pay from the PGF and we shopped."

"That would probably be best. But I suspect there's more to it than the broadcast. It would be interesting to hear what they find on that thumb drive."

Finally through quarantine! Bartja fumes as he gathers what gear he was allowed to bring planet-side and looks around the Spaceport for anyone he knows.  Seeing no one, he activates his communicator.

"Bartja to Desi and everyone - I've been released!  What did I miss, and where can I find you?"

"We'll catch you up on what you missed when we meet up with you. Rather not say over a non-secured line. Let me give you the address to where we're staying and we'll have a drink and talk. Try to find out if there are any stores around to buy equipment and toys on your way out," Desi tells Bartja over the chronocom and gives directions to where the're currently staying.

"Roger that" he replies and waits for the address to be texted to him as he makes his way free of the spaceport.  A lot was happening here, and quickly.  His pace quickens as he looks for the exit.  Seeing an open pub, he slows and his eyes are drawn within.  Licking his lips unconsciously, then shakes his head and skin flaps before picking up the pace and heading outside.

Once outside, he pays a cred and gets aboard the monorail to take him to their quarters.  He by-passes stops along the way where equipment might be purchased, muttering to himself "No time for toys now - not I know what we're facing here."
