OP, we're gonna need to call in some backup.
Patch me through to the Colonel.
"Colonel, this is Jussi, we're mobilizing against the raider forces, they're packing serious heat, and we need some assistance. I know what you're thinking, 'why stick my neck out when the raiders will probably leave me alone anyway' but they aren't your problem, we are, if we get fragged, Corvatti sends more vicious, better equipped mercs, who probably won't be as understanding of your position as we have been, and you'll have to deal with them without support. help us out here, and you have my word we will assist you in any way we can in making sure your dependents are kept safe. Colonel, you seem like a man who cares about his people, and i admire that, help us or not, it's been a pleasure negotiating. Jussi Out."
