This is The Cynic, over...

So, we doing this or what? I'm wondering if everyone is waiting for something to happen?

The Referee relays...

Here is my proposal then for the next episode:

The sensor system of the Wildcard was not just old and decrepit, it was quite literally beginning to fall apart. The ships automated repair bots were constantly working to patch wires, put out small electrical fires, and reroute power through various subsystems just to keep the sensors running. There was no doubt in any of the crew members’ minds that as far as the sensors were concerned, they were on borrowed time and it wouldn’t be long before the Wildcard was effectively deaf and blind.

The system was so worn that even an overhaul would not suffice; the system had to be replaced entirely. Fortunately they’d had a lead on where they could find a replacement. Unfortunately, there were complicating factors; it also meant returning to Ruie. Namely, they would have to bend a few rules and perhaps a few Imperial laws in order to get their hands on what they needed.

It was a passenger that gave them the lead, an old Marine travelling from Alell to Efate had revealed to Gaden a little bit of confidential information. He had been involved in something of a “pacification” action during the closing of the 5th Frontier War in which Imperial Marines were sent to secure suspected Zhodani conspirators from a listening post on the planet. The initial assault and recovery went well enough but the refitted Free Trader they had been using as cover managed to take a hit from some SAM sites and crashed into a mess of a swamp.

A rescue team eventually recovered the marine and his unit but as far as that marine knew, the Imperials never recovered the vessel and its still sitting there in the swamp. Most of the ships systems should still be operational.

True it would mean returning to the backwoods world that is Ruie, but it also means the chance to recover a fully operational sensors system that would be fully compatible if fitted to the Wildcard

If this is acceptable I will work on having the opening post up soon. Post any purchases that you would have made or downtime activities you would partake in on the support thread; the opening post will take place with the Wildcard emerging from jump in the Ruie system so we will basically jump right in at that point.

Sounds good.

A bit concerned that we are flying blind but them is the breaks. Taking everything in stride, hopefully the location opens us to just the backwoods and not the natives.

We should stock the Locker. Survival gear, Vacc Suits, all that sort of thing.

Getting new sensors is definitely our priority. A whole ship to strip sounds tempting. Lots of spares. We need lifting gear. A grav-cargo loader would be nice, if we can afford one. If we're looking at swampland a boat and some SCUBA gear would be useful. And Machetes. And Insect repellent…

Wasn't the vector for that disease stagnant water? Full environment suits, NBC decontamination kit…
I'll try to compose my synopsis in the next day or two.

It all sounds good to me but I would have to remain on board the ship or someplace else as I am considered a wanted man on Ruie.

Rebel over...

Even if you are wanted, if we are in a swamp with no one else around, I would imagine you can walk around freely. I don't think it is any more dangerous to be out and about in an environmental vac suit than it is to be stuck on the ship. But Traveler is a deadly game, so I can understand erring on the side of caution.

I also agree with Bindoner about the supplies we need. And I like the idea that Aericsteele proposed.

Thanks for getting the second episode up and running Aericsteele. Time to get back to being heroes or villains or whatever we are ;)

Do you want me to keep maintaining our financials in my character profile?
