PREVIOUSLY: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?searchall=Star+Wars%3A+Fortune+HunterYou’ve heard stories about the Killik. You’ve read about them in class back at the Academy. They were supposed to be long extinct considering they abandoned their mounds back on Alderaan. The fact that you’re standing beneath a group of them right now is a daunting prospect. It’s as if they just leapt from the holopages of history just to mess with you. You, Kuvasz, and Vikker stepped closer together, nearly back to back as the great big bugs advanced on you.One of them pokes you with his stick, jabbing you with the blunt end of it. “Hey!” you yell back. It flinches back, surprised by your sudden response. It proceeds to poke you again, harder this time. “Ow! Stop that!” You slap down his stick. The other Killik proceed to surround you, ignoring Kuvasz and Vikker. You’ve made a huge mistake. They proceed to poke you, apparently in curiosity. But all its doing is making you angry! “Stop that!” You slap away their spears and sticks. They click their jaws and mandibles to each other, buzzing in some weird language that for some reason sounds they’re constantly saying “uuuu”.“What are they doing?” asks Vikker.“They must be wondering why Rhys’s skin is so soft; if they’re giant insects they might not have too much concept for people with bones on the inside like us,” Kuvasz explains.“Yeah, yeah! Great!” You push away one of them. It hisses at you. “Ah!” you scream at it, and it immediately retreats in fright by your sudden noise. “Real great scientific explanation, Kuvasz, you should’ve been a scientist instead of a mercenary!”“Well, I mean, I was for like a year,” he says.“I’m being sarcastic!” you yell back. You wave your arm in front of your nose, groaning at the incredible smell you’ve discovered from these giant bugs. “Look, we’ve got to-“[1/2]
>>43985339[2/2]You hear a massive stomp behind you. You turn around to see Sparks has dismounted into his walker mode. Out of his underbelly, his new twin laser cannons pop out and aim right at the Killik. Sparks screeches loudly, sending the Killik retreating back into the wilderness. Oh, thank goodness for that. You shake your head, sighing.“This changes things,” says Kuvasz as he walks up to you. “Treasure is one thing. But it appears the Killik have made a home around the RAS Bailoff, our treasure.”“I’m not going to give up on it,” you say. “That treasure is ours for the taking.” You quickly dust yourself off, then suddenly hunch over. “Bu- but first.” You quickly run over to the water, kicking up clouds of sand beneath your feet. Ugh, oh for… You quickly vomit into the water, spilling some bile and what was your lunch into the ocean. Oh, they stank, what a smell that was. Kuvasz and Vikker quickly run after you, then join you in vomiting up their lunches. “Wh- you too!?”“I haven’t smelled anything like that since those Rakghouls on Taris!” yells Vikker. “Mother of mercy!” You shake your head. You’re not sure you ever wanted to see an Aqualish vomit but there it was.Kuvasz catches his breath faster than you two. “Alright, Rhys. What’s the plan?”> “Well, they didn’t attack us. Maybe we can talk things out.”> “We’ve got a bomber, a freighter packed with lots of guns, and a droid fighter. We level these woods until we send them packing.”> “We get out of here. I won’t give up, but that doesn’t mean I’m not giving up TODAY.”> Other
>>43985342>> “Well, they didn’t attack us. Maybe we can talk things out.”>Have Misri prepare us some gas masks.>Also have Lev to start picking out part of the debris outside the plantet that may be worth looting.
>>43985342>“We get out of here. I won’t give up, but that doesn’t mean I’m not giving up TODAY.”>Other:Get back to the ship and pull up all of the files we can find on Killiks.Know the enemy before we kill them all.
>>43985342> “We’ve got a bomber, a freighter packed with lots of guns, and a droid fighter. We level these woods until we send them packing.”A little fire never hurt anything important.A big fire that burns down forests leaves ONLY valuable things behind.
>>43985342>>43985400This, I don't mind a standard retreat for now but maybe have Lev or R5 work as translator and figure out what the hell is going on.
>>43985454at least wait until there are more than 4 voters before starting to samefag
>>43985449Won't that pissed off the locals, We notice that a A280C won't pierce their exoskeleton. Burning their homes will only pissed them off.
>> “Well, they didn’t attack us. Maybe we can talk things out.”>Have Misri prepare us some gas masks.>Also have Lev to start picking out part of the debris outside the plantet that may be worth looting.
>>43985492No forest means no cover. No cover means anti-ship weaponry. Anti-ship weaponry means dead bugs.
>>43985342>> “We’ve got a bomber, a freighter packed with lots of guns, and a droid fighter. We level these woods until we send them packing.”
>>43985482I'm not same fagging. I just got here.
>>43985512well one of these>>43985400>>43985418>>43985449>>43985454must be a samefag since when these four were posted there were only 3 posters excluding OP
>>43985507I guess but that will only get them to dig deeper underground or worse the place where the treasure might be. We do have to touch ground sometime to get it and they will be prepared and angry.
>>43985552actually do we? Could we just haul the entire ship to orbit and look it over there?
>>43985539Look for the option with the most votes. Thats the samefagged one
I really don't get why people want to piss of a kilick hive that isn't hostile.
>>43985342> “We’ve got a bomber, a freighter packed with lots of guns, and a droid fighter. We level these woods until we send them packing.”
>>43985552if they go underground they're not our problem anymore and if they go into the ship we get cooked bugs. just because the cargo can handle the heat doesn't mean anything else in there will>>439856231. Because they're mindraping bugs2. Because they're in the way
>>43985575http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Venator-class_Star_DestroyerThis is the ship we found and it is a few sizes bigger then our freighter not to mention heavier so i doubt it.Not to mention, the fact even if we could we still need to send someone to hook the ships up which will require boots on the ground.
>>43985656It's actually an Acclamator Assault ship which is much smaller but still not exactly something your Freighter can just pick up.
>>43985649We're not a star destroyer either, once they run for cover, they can pop right back up again.
>>43985656Won't gas masks be a good solution this then or rather send the droids to negotiate with them. Don't rock the boat just yet.
>>43985342> “Well, they didn’t attack us. Maybe we can talk things out.”seconding this >>43985454
>>43985649There's still stuff in the ship that could blow up, and that could end up spreading the cargo all over the island.
>>43985773hmm... true. Just level a few kilometers of forest around the ship and keep pounding until there's nothing alive down there and go check it out.Talking to these things will only be a waste of time and play against our strengths of massively superior weaponry.
>>43985815You apparently don't know much about Kilicks. Pissing off a Kilick hive that isn't hostile is a terrible idea.
>>43985815And if their inside the ship? Our weapons don't work on them and will only piss them off
>>43985342>“Well, they didn’t attack us. Maybe we can talk things out.”let's not start bombing a planet which has a force disturbance
>>43985919Which we only have a limited supply of and even then sounds dubious at best to try
>>43985953alternatively we could just smoke them out. enough CO2 in the air kills pretty much anything
>>43985989That in itself sounds like that will take a lot of time and a sustained operation in which we might not have the ordinance to sustain.
>>43986038We're in a forest. We know how to make fire.
>>43985989Not to mention how well the ventilation system will still work in which i will either clear out the smoke or might not get through all the corridors and rooms in which we need to explore.
>>43986099Then we will cry in a corner because the universe hates us.How is willingly allowing ourselves or our assets into their striking distance a better idea?
>>43986123Because the droid don't get hijacked since they can't smell. We shot at them first and nothing happen and were more curious about us then anything. At that point they could have killed us but didn't. Frankly taking a chance to solve this peacefully then out right doing a pisspoor orbital strike when we have limited ordinance and man power to sustain such a thing when we have to explore a Assault ship is a bad idea.
>>43986207And if/when they like the ship they live in?How do you communicate to these things?What do you offer them in exchange for free passage?Will we have to save the bots or leave them to die when these bugs decide they're interesting enough to take into their hive?
> “Well, they didn’t attack us. Maybe we can talk things out.”“As much as they stink, I think we can hash things out peacefully. They had a chance to kill us, they didn’t take it. Obviously they are not as primitive as they may look, they might respond to negotiation.”Kuvasz nods. “A well-thought plan. Are we going to get gas masks for that?”You nod, then turn on your comm-link. “Misri, get down here.”--You strap on a breathing mask. Kuvasz, Vikker, and Misri wear theirs as well, ready to take on the Killik’s horrific scent. “Alright, here’s the plan. I do the talking. Lev.” He turns his head to you, folding his hands behind his back. “Record what you can. R5 and Sparks will look after the ships.”R5 calls you over the comm-link. “Yes, continue to leave me out of your dangerous adventures with giant insects that could rip you asunder. Good thing I am programmed to pilot the ship in an emergency.” You roll your eyes.Misri coughs. “R5 won’t actually leave us to die, will he?”“You, definitely not. Me, probably,” you say. “Now let’s go. We’re burning daylight.” You grab your weapons, march into the woods. Vikker is carrying the Galactic universal standard for peaceful negotiation: a white flag on a stick. Hopefully, those Killik recognize it, or at least don’t feel like killing you long enough to try and figure out how they communicate. If they can even communicate.Misri slowly grabs your arm, checking around. “This… feels off.” You look down. “This place feels wrong somehow.”“I feel it too, just keep steady,” you say. “We won’t be here long.” You hope not. The longer you spend on this odd planet, the more you feel colder and… somewhat dead inside. You’re not sure what’s causing it, but honestly if Misri wants you to bug out, you are going to bug out. You won’t even come back for the scrap. This planet can’t be cursed, curses aren’t real after all. There’s something much deeper going on here, and you don’t like it one bit.[1/3]
>>43986268[2/3]After a short march through the woods, you arrive back at the Killik mounds once more, surrounding the Accalamator RAS Bailoff. You sling your disruptor onto your back, then grab the white flag from Vikker and wave it around.Kuvasz leans over to Vikker. “I’m not entirely sure they’ll recognize the white flag the way we want them to.”“Don’t jinx it,” Vikker quickly says.At least the smell is duller. You see a few dozen heads pop out of the mounds, looking directly down on you. “Hey!” you shout. “Uh… truce!” They click and clack their teeth to each other, their antennae flaring and curling up. Very visual sort of language. You look over at Lev. “What do you think?”“The Empire holds few records of Killik interactions. Only the ISS Admonitor has reported sightings. I have very little basis with which to decipher their language,” Lev explains. Alright, fair enough. You sigh in frustration, looking up at them all. They look back down at you once again.One of the Killik, a large one that towers over the rest and wearing what appears to be salvaged Clone trooper armor over his own exoskeleton, skitters down his mound and towards you. With his spear, he draws something in the dirt in front of your feet. The four of you kneel down to see what it says.FRIEND?You look up at him, and he stares down at you, expectant. “Um. I guess?” You nod, then stand up and look up at him. Its jaws snap against each other, apparently trying to communicate with you. “Look, we don’t understand what you’re saying, maybe we can stick to the whole drawing stuff?” His antennae curl downwards, then he looks down at the dirt and points to it. “Yes, yes, draw uh…” You quickly shovel your feet against the ground, drawing something new with your dirt.RHYS“My name’s Rhys,” you say. “Rhys.”The Killik nods, then draws something new in the dirt.WHY REES HERE
>>43986259We don't take the ship,Lev can probably function as a protical droid, or we can probably upload the language to him.Either scrap, or by negotiations that is a aspect that their is no avoiding when it comes to talks but better then pissing them off.They weren't interested in the R4 and possibly the other droid in that ship, what will make them interested in a tactical droid or a R5 model.
>>43986285[3/3]“Well, there’s something in that ship that I want,” you explain. “And you’re uh… kind of in my way. So if you could just get out of my way? That’d be great.”The Killik draws something new.NO. SKY DAGGER SACRED.“Sacred?” asks Misri. “How?”The Killik again draws something new, apparently a bit more frantically this time.SKY DAGGER GIFT FROM SKY. SKY GIFT KILLIK MANY THINGS. SOMETIME EVEN PEOPLE LIKE YOU. NEVER SURVIVE PAST WEEK“Ah, okay.” You look over at Misri. “Yeah, these guys are a cargo cult then.” She tilts her head, confused. “Cargo cults. Back at Flight School, they warned us that Outer Rim and Unknown Region planets had all kinds of sentient species out here that would be a bit… behind the times, these Killik must not have contact with anything outside of this planet so they think that everything that falls out of the sky is some kind of gift from God.”The Killik curls its antennae, clicking its teeth desperately. It quickly draws something new.SKY DAGGER HOME, SKY DAGGER GLITTERS INSIDE“Glitter,” says Vikker. “That means the aurodium must still be inside!”“Can you take us inside?” you ask.The Killik quickly writes something new.NO“Well. He’s honest,” says Kuvasz. You sigh deeply, groaning in frustration. This is the last thing you need right now.> “Alright. Everyone back to the ship. We got to figure something out here.”> Try and convince the Killik, to the best of your abilities.> Other
>>43986315>OtherAHAHAHA TIME FOR ORBITAL BOMBARDMENT
>>43986315>> Try and convince the Killik, to the best of your abilities.>Propose a trade. Offer them a trip to see beyond the stars?
>>43986315>“Alright. Everyone back to the ship. We got to figure something out here.”Is the Bailoff operational?Could R5, if Sparks could fly him to the Acclamator's bridge, get the ship to fire up its engines and take off?Once in orbit he could turn off the gravity and space the atmosphere to kill anyone still onboard.
>>43986315this >>43986380if it doesn't work, I'm aboard the firebomb train
>>43986315>> OtherBombing run
>>43986315> Try and convince the Killik, to the best of your abilities.
>>43986395I'd assume if the ship was still operational it wouldn't have crashed but it might be worth checking out. Question is how do you get in there?
>>43986315>Try and convince the Killik, to the best of your abilities.ask if they can feel the "off-ness" maybe it started when the bailoff landed? if so we can fix that
>>43986315> Try and convince the Killik, to the best of your abilities.Propose a trade?>>43986395The ship needs 700 men to man it, so I think we need more then what we have to make it take off.
>>43986440It looks like the ship landed, though, since the last thread had descriptions of deployed landing struts.>>43986461>The ship needs 700 men to man itYeah, for optimum operation, but how many are needed just to turn the engines on and make a simple launch to orbit?
this is going to be one hell of a diplomacy roll to get a Cargo Cult to give up being a Cargo Cult.
>>43986628I think at least a third. if it was already in orbit sure you might be right but right now, i doubt it especially it's been years since it last took off and the wild life has occupated it
>>43986650We could maybe have R5 fly our freighter over, to show them that we too come from the Heavens and that the time has come for the Killik to ascend to the Sky.
>>43986315> “Alright. Everyone back to the ship. We got to figure something out here.”
>>43986718They hold the Sky Dagger sacred. Going to space isn't going to make them stop them holding the Sky Dagger sacred.
>>43986757Once they're in space our astromech droid can slice into the ship computer and vent atmo, and the Killiks, into space.
> Try and convince the Killik, to the best of your abilities.“Okay, look. We can sort of understand each other, you know.” The Killik stares at you. “We’re people from the Sky. We have ships from the Sky too. We are… divine?”He quickly swipes a line under NO.Well, that was worth a shot. “Okay, let’s start over. Look. The aurodium inside, the glittering stuff, that is incredibly valuable to us. It obviously has no use to any of you. But to us, it’s the world, so we don’t need the ship. We just need the aurodium.”Again, another line is swiped under NO.You narrow your eyes. “Listen to me. Maybe we can propose a trade. We can take you into the sky, show you the world beyond, in exchange for the aurodium inside. What do you say?” His antennae straightens out, then his teeth click in apparent pensiveness. Other Killik step down from their mounds and stand alongside him. The three of them start talking to each other in their language. Maybe you’ve finally made some progress. One of them stomps their spear into the ground, apparently furious. But then they look back at you, and then resume arguing amongst themselves.“What do you think they’re arguing about?” asks Misri.Vikker shrugs. “I’ve had more heated arguments about what time of day it is.” Misri looks at him, tilting her head. “Just saying.”The Killik finally manage to agree on something though. They write something new in the dirt.THE GLITTER IS SACRED. WE WILL NOT TRADE. SKY NO PLACE FOR UNWORTHY BEINGS LIKE US.You sigh, groaning. “A-… are you sure?” They cross a line underneath the statement. “Okay.” Viker kicks the dirt a bit, frustrated. “Alright. We’ll leave, but I think you all are making a big mistake. We can sort something new out later maybe.” You grab Misri’s shoulder, and turn her around to leave. “Come on, guys.” The Killik watch you leave, watchful.[1/2]
>>43987211[2/2]--All of you stand around in the cargo bay, which has been reloaded with your ships and spare scrap that Misri picked up out of the debris orbiting the planet. “Okay,” you say. “Here’s the idea. We take off. And we bomb the site from high altitude.” Misri looks up, sitting on your R-22. “They’re just a bunch of bugs anyway, nobody’s going to miss them.”Vikker raises his hand. “Aye.”“Now hold on,” says Misri. She stops off the ship, and walks up to you. “Hold on just a second. We’re going to bomb some innocent tribals just to get at their valuables?” You nod. “Th- that can’t be right! That’s not fair to them! They’ve settled on that land for who knows how long! And we’re just going to dust them off and steal their stuff?”“We’re only stealing the aurodium,” you say. “They aren’t going to let us have it, Misri.”“I know but…” She stomps her foot, glaring at you. “Damn it, Rhys! Come on! There’s got to be a better way than just bombing them with our laser cannons and our concussion missiles! And even if I agreed to it, all of this stuff!” She motions around the cargo bay. “This isn’t enough to kill them all.”“I’m not looking to-“Kuvasz raises his hand. “If I may speak. I have to agree with Misri.” You what. “These Killik have done nothing to antagonize us. They have been straight, and honest in their conviction to defend that ship. And bombing their homeland will do nothing except anger them, perhaps possibly turn them against the galactic community permanently if we were to do this kind of damage to their homeland.”Vikker stands up off of his crate, walking up to Kuvasz. “We’re being lectured on who not to shoot by a Mandalorian?”“Yes.” Kuvasz grabs Vikker’s chest, holding him in place. “Do you have a problem?”[2/3]
>>43987227[3/3]“Guys, guys!” You quickly separate Kuvasz and Vikker. Ugh, in fighting is the last thing you need right now. “Look. I’ll make my decision later. Let’s just take a rest, and understand that on my ship, this is no democracy. What I say goes.” Everyone looks at you, expectant. “Just give me an hour or two and I’ll get back to you.” You step towards the machine shop and on to the cockpit.You sigh. You thought this treasure would make you. Now it’s just about to tear you to pieces the way things are going. What right do those bugs have in claiming the ship and everything in it theirs anyway? They’re just bugs. If you had a Star Destroyer, you’d have bombed this entire island from orbit already. But you don’t. This freighter can do many things in your hands, but bombing a tribe of Killik? That’s a question that you really need answered.You open the door to the cockpit, then find Lev. He quickly shuts off of his holopad and turns to you. “Sir.”You squint at him. “Lev.” You step inside. “Were you calling someone?”“I was activating a transponder signal, in case we were leaving and perhaps needed to come back here again,” he says. Alright, alright. You sit in the pilot’s seat, sighing. “Are you in need of advice, sir?”“I’ve never been given advice by a droid, so no,” you mutter. He nods.Lev nods. “Very well. What shall we do then, sir?”> “Nothing. I’m tired. I think everyone just needs some rest.”> “Actually, Lev. I’ve been meaning to ask. What’s on that holopad of yours anyway?”> “We take off, we bomb them.”> Other
>>43987248>> “Actually, Lev. I’ve been meaning to ask. What’s on that holopad of yours anyway?”
>>43987248>> “Actually, Lev. I’ve been meaning to ask. What’s on that holopad of yours anyway?”Listen to the Mando.
>>43987248> “Actually, Lev. I’ve been meaning to ask. What’s on that holopad of yours anyway?”
>>43987248>“We take off, we bomb them.”Damn it this is why we will never have anything good. Curse you /tg/ and your waifuing getting in the way of getting rich.
>>43987248>Other"Tactical prediction: what force and weaponry will be required to eliminate an entire hive of Killik? Can this freighter and the fighters on it perform the job?"
>>43987248>“We take off, we bomb them.”Money is king
> “Actually, Lev. I’ve been meaning to ask. What’s on that holopad of yours anyway?”“Let me ask you a question, Lev.” He zooms his optics on you, interested. “That holopad, what exactly do you even have on it?”He slowly places it behind his back. “Data on your letter of marque, bounties, tactical information, nothing important to you.” Oh? You stand up, walking up to him and facing him eye to eye. “Why do you ask?”“Because this is the second time I’ve caught you on it, and you just quickly shove it away as if trying to hide something from me,” you say. “You’re not trying to hide anything from me are you?”Lev swivels his head left, then tilts it, looking at you. “You may be experiencing paranoia as a result of your crew’s insubordination, sir. Might I suggest you rest, and perhaps you can take time to think over your decision on bombing the Killik, sir.”…You hold out your hand. “Give me the holopad, Lev.” He stares at you, obviously not having it. “The holopad, Lev.” The door opens, and in rolls in R5. “R5.” R5 quickly rams right into Lev, knocking the holopad out of his hands and sending him sprawling across a seat. You pick it up and quickly begin reading it.“Sir, with all due respect, if you read that you may not like what you see.” R5 quickly rams into Lev again before he can recover. “Ow. Damn you, you astromech.”You quickly flip through his notes, hoping that he hasn’t password encrypted the important stuff. Maybe if you’re lucky, you might have caught him before he was able to log off. You blink. Wait, what was that? Communications. You narrow your eyes as you flip through the communications log. Then you see it, dozens of messages to Lotte, mostly in response to your kill count, your bounties, that sort of stuff.But at the bottom.Commander Ulgo. Cykgil has found something of use to the Empire, a massive stash of aurodium in the Unknown Regions. I am sending you the coordinates. Additional reinforcements will be required for this operation.
>>43987948[2/2]“Lev.” You turn to him. Your blood boils. This is terrible. This is worse than terrible. This is treasonous. This droid… “You told Lotte… you told the Empire what’s here!?”He shoves R5 away, then stands up and walks up to you. You step back, your back against the wall. He stares straight at you, the lights in his eyes nearly blinding you. He says, “Yes. As is expected of me.”…“How long?” you ask.“They will arrive within three days. ISS Admonitor accompanied by flotilla of five Victory IIs and several Gozanti freighters. And many more to come soon to secure the planet. Commander Lotte is personally coming to secure the cargo.”You gnash your teeth, glaring at Lev. You could just blast him right now.> “Get me a line with Lotte.”> “Get us out of here.”> Beat Lev down.> Other
>>43987969>> Beat Lev down.This is our treasure! Fuck the Empire!
>>43987969> “Get me a line with Lotte.”
>>43987969>“Get me a line with Lotte.”A Finder's Fee. A single crate of aurodium out of an entire cargo hold full.Because we would need those forces to get at it anyway, unless someone can come up with a way to get into the ship and get the cargo despite the natives.
>>43987969>Beat Lev down.>OtherRight. Now it isn't a question of IF they die but when. We need to get as must of that stuff on board as possible and get the hell out of dodge before the Empire makes us give the stuff back.
>>43987969>> “Get me a line with Lotte.”
>>43988036>>43988052How will beating Lev down do anything besides hurt our hands.And I'm kind of mad at the situation since Lev screwed us but considering our options what choice do we have right now?
>>43988168well giving him to Misri to "reconfigure" should be good enough of a punishment.
Honestly how hard will it be for the empire to take out this hive?
>>43988225somewhere between nil and zero. they could easily just poison the environment or just lift the whole ship to space.
So does anyone still want to work with the empire?
>>43988267So essentially we're fucked out of our fortune then unless we listen to Lotte about doing some sort of suicide mission.
We could try to use the fact that the Empire is coming for the aurodium to take it to "keep the kiliks safe" if we want to betray the empire.
>>43988297It's still better than working with the Rebels. And honestly, when we brought Lev to the Acclamator and said "auridium" in his presence, this was a foregone conclusion.He already had told us that he was sending information back to Lotte before.
>>43988308Unless we manage to get our hands on some of it before the fleet arrives.>>43988297Yes. A corrupt system is better than a broke one.
>>43988297not after this want to go freelance
>>43988425Can't go freelance if all sides but one already want us dead.
>>43988447their are more sides then the rebels and the empire
>>43988462We could do more work for the hutts.
>>43988447says whojust completely cut off anything empire related, do some hits against them, and word will spreadwe don't have to be rebels, but freelance is better than being fucked by an old friend like this, the sket.
>>43988469working for hutts is probably even worse.true freelance.
>>43988484>and word will spreadYeah, that we're a backstabber and can't be trusted.No one will want to work with us, or hire us, once we get a reputation of betraying our employers.
So can we kill Lottie now?
>>43987969oh my fucking GOD. I KNEW IT I KNEW THE FUCKING STUPID ASS ROBOT WOULD BE TROUBLE. WE SHOULD'VE SPACED THAT LITTLE SHIT THE FIRST CHANCE WE HAD FUCKING HELL.We need to remove the fucking bugs quickly and take everything we can. Bash the robot into pieces and leave it were the treasure should be. Fucking stupid ass bitch should've just fucking sold that stupid schematics for 100k GODDAMIT
>>43988550Dnnd do nuffin
>>43988534no one wants to work with us or trust us now that we're empire, that much is obvious since smuggler's haven.We have the mandos, hutt's, pure freelance, vikker's contacts, the galazy's our oyster and you wanna massed the back of the bitch who betrayed usnah>>43988550I figure a complete disowning is a better punishment, shit'll kill her on the inside.>>43988573Supporting, the rest of the crew hopefully will now that they realize it's this or the empire takes it.
>>43988573We don't have the weapons enough to get rid of the bugs, even the fucking Mandalorian is against fighting. How are you going to get rid of the bugs when they can just retreat into the ship that can shrug off our paltry weapons?
Wow you guys aren't taking this well, what did you expect? This was a long time coming, burning bridges with the Empire is a really dumb move.
>>43988612Enough to make them poop their pants and leave that place.
>>43988621OH YEAH BETTER SUCK THAT EMPIRE'S DICK WHILE THEY FUCKING SCAM US A SIDE-JOB THAT THEY DIDNT DO SHIT FOR.
Can they actually control the vessel? If they can't could we get access to the hanger with our friegter? Blast our way in?
We can just show them what a disruptor does to an organic being and let the rest of the bugs back off or choose their fate.Or sneak into the ship at night, either way, soon, and fuck the empire now.>>43988645Xactly.
>>43988621Big difference between working for them and them stealing from us.
>>43988645>CAPS-LOCK MAKES MY ARGUMENT SEEM VALID >REEEEE Ugh you made me greentext anon, I feel dirty
>>43988688No, my argument IS valid, I dont need caplocks. IM JUST PLATINUM MAD BY YOUR KEKOLDRY YOU FUCKING FAGGOT
>>43988686This was always going to happen, the fact you guys are getting mad about it is what made me comment. I'm against cutting ties but whatever
> “Get me a line with Lotte.”“Get me a line with Lotte. Now.” He nods, taking back his holopad and connecting it to the communications console in the cockpit. You sit down in your chair, then wait. You chew on the insides of your cheek, balling your hands into fists. How could Lev do this? Forget that, how could Lotte do this? After all you’ve been through.Finally, her image shows up on hologram. “Rhys!” She smiles, crossing her arms. “What can I do for my most favorite-““Lev told me everything,” you say. Her smile drops completely. “Why are you coming to take my treasure?”She’s silent for a minute, then sighs and relaxes. “You know, I knew about this treasure the moment Lev came aboard your shuttle and listened in on your conversations with Vikker and friends. I was really hoping you could’ve at least have been honest with me.”“You’re not answering my question.”She nods. “Fine. Rhys, with that much aurodium, the Empire can build so many more Star Destroyers, recruit so many more soldiers and pilots, and really inject new life and security into the Outer Rim. You know those things called Tarkintowns? Those squalid little villages where people have to live in absolute filth because we can’t afford to house them all? Think about what a sudden influx of cash would do to our ability to house those people! And really-“[1/2]
>>43988725[2/2]You cut her off. “I don’t care.” She quietly looks at you, awaiting your response. “Lotte. At least consider a finder’s fee or something. I have risked life and limb for this treasure. I have nearly died for it. You cannot just take it from me without another word.”She scratches her chin, mulling over it. “Rhys. The Letter of Marque is clear that we have free reign to possess anything of yours in times of need. You’re not a soldier, you’re a Privateer.” You turn, sighing. “But. I suppose, old times are old times. Maybe I can help you some way. I-… I don’t know how but… look, I know this is a bad situation and I don’t have all the answers. Just don’t take this personally, okay?”“It really feels personal, Lotte.”She sighs. “I-… I don’t have… what do you want, money? Er uh… guns? Drugs? I’ll try, I’ll really try. Just let me have this one thing.”> “No.”> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”> Other
>>43988725Fuck you Lottie.
>>43988739> “No.”Let's go overload the reactor on that ship.
>>43988739>> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”inb4 REEEE I IS ANGRY, EMPIRE DID EMPIRE THINGS REEEE
>>43988739I'LL HAVE EVERYTHING INSIDE THAT FUCKING SHIP OR I SWEAR TO GOD NEXT FLIGHT I TAKE TO YOUR PLACE IS GONNA BE ME DIVING DOWN KAMIKAZE STYLE THROUGH THE MAIN DOOR YOU FUCKING WHORE.
>>43988705"this was always going to happen"We all knew it was going to happen, but I doubt Rhys ever thought his old friend would fuck him over like this, this hard.She's totally sucking the emperor's dick and she doesn't deserve our respect anymore.Cut ties.>>43988747Yeah!>>43988739>"No."What the tarkin towns they caused by killing and destroying? that they could be funding shelter and food for by not giving lotte a new mansion every weekday?naaaaaah.>>43988755I like your train of thought mate.
>>43988739>“Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”
>>43988739> “No.”Cut communications.We need to get at least some of that stuff into our ship before we bail.
>>43988739>“Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”As much money as I can imagine.
>>43988772>REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Stop embarrassing yourself, you aren't twelve and neither is Rhys
>>43988739>> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”
>>43988772Calm your shit. I don't agree with any of this but you're coming off as an ass. Also it's not a properly formatted vote.
>>43988795>Oh boy, my BOSS FUCKED MY WIFE!? Better work hard on the next term reports to earn that promotion!That's you right now.
>>43988739> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”Galaxy is a big place, there will be another score like this eventually.
>>43988817Are you insane?
>>43988817yeah and I can't wait for her to take that too.
>>43988739> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”Jesus christ people, we can grab a few pallets of the stuff and still live like kings. We don't need an entire ship worth of it, we'll just make ourselves targets.
>>43988815That's a horrible analogy for this situation, she said we'd get compensation, if we don't then we can get angry. Working for the Empire has been lucrative so far.
>>43988739> “No.”I'm not about to get fucked over by something totally unrelated to the empire. We worked for this, we earned this, no help from the empire involved means nothing to them.
>>43988832We need to stuff our ship full as full as possible and leave lev behind with an empty ship and some bugs
>>43988827This is a quest, driven by literary devices, it'll happen. >>43988830We won't have a bugged droid next time. >>43988832This
>>43988832No we can't. She wants to throw some credits at us instead.>>43988835She is thinking about compensating us. She gave a paragraph on what she could fucking do with it.She wasn't planning on compensating us at all. She's saying maybe she can. Maybe.
>>43988832you seem to misunderstand. They're taking ALL of it and then giving us a few hundred thousand credits at best for a haul worth billions if not trillions.
>>43988739>> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”The juvenile thinking in this thread is hurting my soul
>>43988863What's hard to understand about taking some before they get here and not telling them?
>>43988861>>43988832* When I say some credits. I mean some. She's literally saying lol wants some guns or drugs?They're taking it. Without compensating us at all... And she might get us... some cash. This is enough to build literally dozens of star destroyers... and we're getting nothing.We've got a samefag who wants to work for the empire so bad it hurts. "IT's so juvenile give up a fortune for a pat on the back! After all we'll get more grunt work!"
>>43988851"This is a quest, driven by literary devices, it'll happen."I've never seen a more meta reason for an option, holy fuck.
>>43988867It's not juvenile to want to keep some of the treasure we should fill our ship and the h wing and leave the amount we can take is worth more than a few thousand credits.
>>43988867Yeah. Find a deposit of oil or the next big thing? Better give it to the government! After all those "lucrative" contracts are so great! We got enough to patch up an old star fighter!
>>43988863No, I understand perfectly. I also understand that it's a fucking crashed ship in an uncharted region and whether or not it has a supply log - which will have been outdated for at least a decade - means nothing, because in the time it takes for them to process everything in that wreckage we'll have already gone and they won't think twice about a few being missing when they have an entire hoard. They aren't even in the damn system yet.
>>43988867Say you have a job. You work there, and in the afternoons you freelance, you take commissions for some drawings you make. Suddenly one of your commisions hits the big bucks, you're talking about millionaire status out of the blue. Suddenly your boss comes over and he says "LOL ACTUALLY THAT MILLION IS GONNA HELP KIDS IN AFRICA, HAVE 50$".Do you think is juvenile to say, well no, fuck you, I earned it, it has nothing to do with you, I'll do whatever I please with it?
>>43988890Let's do it then, they can have the rest. I'm just against cutting ties with them when we fucking new this was going to happen.
>>43988878yeah I'm sure the people who come after us won't notice this stuff missing. Also we're going to be fucking destroying their only way to track us and I doubt they're willing to let us keep our Letter of Marque without a leash on us.
>>43988739> “No.”Stuff our ship full bomb the bugs fill the h wing leave what we can't take behind with lev. Lotte is just doing her job no need to freak either way we make a killing even if we don't get everything.
>>43988908First it was working for the empire is great! Now it's oh well we can just snake a few from the giant bug men before they get here! They won't know! And it'll take em forever to figure it out! Do you really think we're going to sift through it faster?
>>43988725>“You know, I knew about this treasure the moment Lev came aboard your shuttle and listened in on your conversations with Vikker and friends. I was really hoping you could’ve at least have been honest with me.”The damn reason we didn't tell you was for this exact reason.> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”
>>43988935Shoot bug. Look for shiny thing. Put shiny thing in ship. Fly away before space men come.Yes, I think we're going to sift through it faster, it's a smash and grab, not taking a complete inventory like they'll be doing.
>>43988934>Get fucked over>Don't take it personally
We worked long and hard for the credits that ship contains, and we've already promised certain percentages of it to certain people.Regardless of whether or not you want to continue working for the people who've given you shit wokr, shit pay, and who've jsut backstabbed you, to give up this treasure for anything less than guaranteed billions is too out of character for me.this was our big score, not our "oh let's see if we can get more than one upgrade this time" score.>>43988916Good explanation.>>43988725> "No."
>>43988953It's not a bug. It's a hive. This is a big goddamn deal and it's shocking how many people just want to throw it away and lie down and take it.
>>43988954When it's obvious it's gonna happen it ain't a huge deal.
>>43988940and if we keep the droid with us they'll know about it. if we don't they no longer have us on leash and will almost certainly either try to reburden us with another leash or just cut us off. They're not going to let us just go around without some kind of supervision.
>>43988977>Well I saw it coming! So it's fine that they fucked me over.>After all! I did bend over!
>>43988739call up the mandos
>>43988977"it's obvious my girl cheated on me, so it's not a big deal"
>Just come in from class >Refresh page >See last vote >What the fuck is going on?
>>43988977that's metagamey as fuck. Lotte was the MCs friend for god knows how long.
>>43988999Lottie is fucking us over and taking every bit of the haul we've found. A lot of anons are saying,"It's totally fine! We can get more contracts for chump change! I mean they might even compensate us if we beg!"
>>43988954We fuck people over constantly with all we are about to make it seems petty to get upset.
>>43988999>>43989017 Or the better one."I knew the Empire would fuck us over, so we should let them."
>>43989026you don't seem to understand how humans work
>>43989026>All we are about to makeAnon, we arent making anything. The empire takes everything and lotte give us petty change so we shut the fuck up.
>>43989017I think that's unfair, seems to me like we just need to grab what we can and confront them about it after we get out of the system. We should at least try to make the best out of this situation before we piss off the biggest group in the galaxy.
>>43988995Mandos sounds good.So does not metagaming, but what else can you expect from the elegan/tg/entlemen>>43989026Mate, do you even social life
>She sighs. “I-… I don’t have… what do you want, money? Er uh… guns? Drugs? I’ll try, I’ll really try. Just let me have this one thing.”I just find it funny how she tries to down play this shit.
>>43988995I kind of doubt they're close enough to help. Or even capable from the size of the fleet that's coming.
>>43989017Is it that unthinkable that we agree with Lotte and take a portion of the cargo anyway? You people keep treating this as an all or nothing deal.
I feel people are just voting to say no so that way we can run to the mandos.
>>43989074refer to >>43988981for why this is going to end one way or another.
>>43989074it is all or nothing if we agree and take some shit then that would be stealing from the empire and they do not like when you do that
>>43989079Or they're voting no because they're not thinking about it, we can come out this pretty well off if we play it smart.
>>43989044Confront them about it? How the fuck are we going to confront the Empire? Our best bet is a smash and grab and to get the fuck out with all we can hall away. I'd love to find a way to destroy the fucking thing as a giant fuck you.They don't want to give us anything and if we take anything they'll want to reaqure it or possibly give us shit over it.Lottie is being a total cunt. She could have just said take what you can drag and is instead offering some credits and maybe some fucking drugs. Either she has such a low opinion of Rhys that she thinks he can be swayed by death sticks, she doesn't really give a fuck, or she's a massively entitled bitch.See>>43989066>>43989074far as I've seen in quests these votes are the determining factors on how the character decides to act. IF schteel steps back and says "You don't have to do what you say" It'll be fine but I think it's a character defining moment instead.>>43989079I'm saying no so we don't get fucked out of a hell of a lot of money.I don't like the mando's they're stupid sluts so far.
>>43989074Nigga if we destroy the droid they know we're doing something we're not allowed to, if we dont they know we're doing something we're not allowed to, where in that plan do you see us getting a part of the treasure for ourselves?
>>43988739>> “Fine. But whatever it is you have better be worth it.”Should we be insulted that she thinks we take drugs?
>>43989091We could let Misri modify him a bit.
>>43989100I'm totally with you in the take everything we can and blow the rest up plan, anon, I got your back.
>>43989096yes like stealing some of this shit from under their noses and hightail it to hutt controlled space.
>>43989114The whole thing is unbelievably insulting. It shows Lottie is only concerned about herself. That heart to heart was just her being a manipulative bitch a thread ago apparently. She literally doesn't get it. "I know you're mad.. so what if I gave you a pat on the back?"
>>43989124Unless we fake logs there isn't really a way to simply erase the Empires need to spy on our activities
>>43989140The fact that we didnt sell the schematics to the other dude for 100k makes me mad as hell too. It was our way of trusting Lotte, and then she does something like this... It feels like double the dick move.
>>43989066"come on rhys, please let me get palpatine senpai headpats by fucking you over, maybe the new mansion they'll put me in will have two extra swimming pools! let me have this one thing for my career while you get nothing!">>43989074It's completely all or nothing. We take anything from that ship and we're dead in the eyes of the empire, and they're going to give us chump change for it.>>43989100Really low opinion of us, all she cares about now is her empire and herself. hence why she punched us when we refused to join up on the spot, and why she's offering us fucking death sticks for billions worth.>>43989114yep>>43989127Why not>>43989140Point.>>43989079I didn't support going to the mandos once before this in the slightest. Now I feel that if they're within range, they're better than the empire. Plus qt mando girls for as far as the eye can see.>>43989171Exactly.
>>43989100Anon I have to agree we earned this we should salvage what we can blow up the rest get out we can't fight them we can get rich.
>>43989171I was one of the guys who wanted to tell the guy to fuck off. I really want to just tell Lotte to go die in a fire.
>>43988725>She nods. “Fine. Rhys, with that much aurodium, the Empire can build so many more Star Destroyers, recruit so many more soldiers and pilots, and really inject new life and security into the Outer Rim. You know those things called Tarkintowns? Those squalid little villages where people have to live in absolute filth because we can’t afford to house them all? Think about what a sudden influx of cash would do to our ability to house those people! And really-“I'm really picking quotes from what she said and comparing it, kind of irks me.She helped in keeping the TIE bombers which is shit compared to the Missile Boats. Now she is saying buying so many new ships and help defend the empire.That new ship could have helped defend and save lives but was not needed in order to keep contract checks. Doesn't anyone find this a big contradiction.And after this what will stop her from doing this again?
>>43989183Since we're getting fucked might as well go out in a bright flash of glory. VENDETTA, VENDETTA!
>>43989222She's a manipulative bitch like some anon said above. She doesnt give a shit about the empire, she doesnt give a shit about us, she just cares about herself, she just wants the fame, the money and whatever perks it comes with.
>>43989222ya she is just a power hungry ho
>>43989124>modify him>the droid wired to blow up at the slightest hint of tampering Why do you want to kill Misri so much?
>>43989222Right. She's a cunt.
Also props to german for making this so engaging. For a moment I felt true rage at that backstab, 10/10 characters bro.
>>43989222Yeah she is probably getting a huge cut of it the money made will go to her and the army, all these guys just okay with losing billions to her when we went out of our way to help her and even gave up 100k credits.
>>43989294Actually 150KThat guy said triple in what she is offering.
>>43989285Same.Thanks for making me 200% MAD.
>>43989246>>43989255Then why not call her on her hypocrisy?Maybe even hint to Cygnus why their Missile Boat failed to get a contract.If we're burning bridges, might as well burn the ones with Kuat as well.
>>43989294Hey! We totally got a pos freighter and second hand equipment!Stop being so Juvenile and go back to doing everything you can for the waifu/authority figure!
Man if I knew this would happen, makes me wished we picked up that bounty contract,
>>43989318Yeah anon! How dare you claim what you rightfully earned?! Fucking entitled little shits I swear.
>>43989285Yeah it's a good plot hook I enjoy the suprise.
>>43989294To be fair, Zann would not have been a good employer, and they're hated by everyone. Hutts, Empire, and Rebels.
>>43989333It was only earned because we live in the grace of the Empire! Without their guiding hand we could never have achieved anything!
>>43989317Exposing corruption doesn't sound too bad.>>43989318>>43989333nice
> “No.”You shake your head. “No, Lotte. This is my treasure. This is bigger than you think it is, and I’m not going to just let you walk over me for it.” You lean closer to her, furrowing your brow. “Lotte, I trusted you. You were my friend. Now all you’re offering to sell me guns and drugs for this? I thought we had something.”She glares at you, but you can see just a tiny bit of heartbreak in her eyes. “We did. But the Empire comes first. Above all else.” She sighs, looking away. “Even friends and family.” She shakes her head, then continues glaring at you now. “Rhys, I’m sorry.”You blink, and then sigh. “I’m not.” You shut the comm link off, then look over at Lev. Well, since he’s here, you might as well. You stand up and grab him by the neck. You drag him to the machine shop, kicking and writhing in your iron grip. Once you open the door, you see Misri fiddling with a part while leaning on her workbench. “Misri.” You toss Lev down to the ground. “Tear Lev apart, give him a memory wipe, shut him down for tonight.”Misri walks up to you. “Hey, wha- what’s going-“ You step past her. “What about the explosives inside of him!?” You sigh, then come back and kick Lev. His back opens up, revealing a set of explosives inside of him. You then grab them and rip them right out of them and toss them away. Misri stands there in shock, Lev as well appears quite shocked that you ripped out his internally placed explosives before he could even activate them. “Er-… um. Di- did something happen?”[1/2]
>>43989349Nobody would really know we collaborated with them, they would assume that agent took the schematics on his own without our hand being in the pool.
I really hope we call her out on the contradictions that we pointed out.
>>43989363[2/2]You open the door into the cargo bay, meeting with Vikker and Kuvasz. They’re busy pushing and shoving each other. “Come on, old man,” says Vikker. “What, never face a mean Aqualish before?”Kuvasz shakes his head. “I’ve killed tookas more vicious than you.” They look over at you, and immediately notice that you’re not in the mood for their fighting. “Rhys. What’s wrong?”“The Empire knows,” you say. You turn around to see Misri standing at the door, watching. “They’re coming for the treasure.” Kuvasz and Vikker groan. Vikker especially kicks at a crate, angered by the prospect of having his score robbed from him. “We’ve got three days, maybe less before they arrive.”“What do we do then?” asks Vikker.> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”> “We leave. There’s nothing for us here anyway and those Killik are never going to forgive us for stealing.”> “We blow up the Bailoff. If we can’t have it no one can.”> Other
>>43989383>> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”
>>43989373>Empire comes first>Better fuck over the empire's pilots! LOL!>>43989383> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can and then blow up the Bailoff.
>>43989383call in the mandos
>>43989383> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”
>>43989383>Grab everything we can, and blow up the rest.
>>43989383steal what we canblow up the rest
>>43989363temper rhys, temper.>>43989383> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”>For Several Tonights> “We blow up the Bailoff. If we can’t have it no one can.”If they're close enough?>Call in the mandos
>>43989383>“Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”Failing that blow the bitch up
>>43989383> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”Get the Freighter down as close to the top of the ship as possible, and start cutting through the hull until we hit the storage. anything that tries to stop us gets to meet Sparky
>>43989395When there's something strange, in your neighbourhood, who you're gonna call?
>>43989383>> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”>> “We blow up the Bailoff. If we can’t have it no one can.”
>>43989427I don't think Ghostbusters made it to The Galaxy Far Far Away
>>43989383> OtherCall up the Mandos
>>43989442Of course not. That's why we've always got old Jedi floating around judging people and shit.
>>43989442Can we pretend that the mandos are the new ghostbusters?
>>43989442He means the mandolorians you nerf herder!>Call the mandos>>43989383Three days of loot and then blow it the fuck up.
So what does this make us now? Since we said no to Lotte. Did we officially cut ties with the empire? We can't collect the bouny on that rebel guy?
>>43989383> “We blow up the Bailoff. If we can’t have it no one can.”
>>43989474If Lotte doesnt want our services, we can always go to Hutts, the mandalorians, let Vikker get us jobs like he did before etc. Not so hard man, this is a big galaxy.
>>43989383>> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”>> “We blow up the Bailoff. If we can’t have it no one can.”Call the mandos and since we have three days spend the next two filling the ship drop anything that would just take space us down fill the H wing and get out.
Hope everyone is happy with no safe place to go anymore.
>>43989494Rotta would be fine, dunno about the rest of the hutts though.
>>43989504if it means you're unhappy I'm happy.You salty namefagging son of a whore.
>>43989504Go to sleep ya sleepy fuck.We'll get by.
>>43989504I will be happy rolling around in the aurodium and the subsequent credit chips that will come with it, you stupid fuck.
>>43989504Yeah! We should have just continued being an empire puppet!If you were so concerned about allegiance to the empire your window was when Lottie offered to get him re-enlisted. You let that pass.The Empire fucks over everyone. Even their own. We either get to be safe in the Empire and Lottie's pet pilot. Or we get to be our own man.
>>43989383>> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.Guys don't blow it up. I rather have those bugs get worked up and have the store troopers go through hell gettingit
I wonder what would have happen if we choose to do the bounties first
>>43989731Same thing. We would've trusted Lotte not to rat us out when we finally decided to get the treasure and would've gotten backstabbed.
> “Tonight, we steal as much as we can carry and run.”“We gotta steal as much as we can carry. We’ll use the cover of night. We’ll park the Lion’ Share on top of the Acclamator then blast a hole through. We cart as much out as we can with us.” You sigh, rubbing at your forehead. You can feel the veins pop out. You really need to calm down. “Look, if we have time. We can set that ship to blow too.”Vikker tusks click. “What happened with Lotte?”“Let’s not talk about that. Are you in, Vikker?” He nods. “Kuvasz? I know you disagree but I’m doing it anyway. If you want to keep disagreeing, I can throw you off this ship.”He crosses his arms. “No. I won’t disagree this time.” You nod, great, great. You look back at Misri, who frightfully cowers behind the door.“Misri. Get us some torches prepped,” you call. She nods, going back into the machine shop. “Listen. It’s going to be loud. And it is likely the Killik will try to stop us, by any means. But we secure that treasure, as much of it as we can, aboard my ship, aboard the H-Wing too. Got that?” They both nod. “Good, good.” You rub your hands together. “Cover of darkness then, boys. Let’s make it count.”--When night finally comes over the planet, the Barloz is lifted up. Sparks is let out as well to fly escort, and eventually provide ground cover on the good chance that the Killik wake up and try to reclaim the ship. You land the Barloz right on top of the Acclamator, unsettling years and years of vegetation and dust around on its roof. “Stay here, Misri,” you say. She nods, taking the pilot’s seat. Normally you’d have Lev do that, but with him out of commission for now, it’s up to you, Vikker, Kuvasz, and R5 to manually retrieve as much treasure as possible. You step down the boarding ramp and meet up with the group, who have an interesting solution for getting through the Acclamators upper levels which are mostly habitation decks. “So what’s the plan?”[1/2]
>>43989843[2/2]Vikker nods, motioning to the cluster of concussion missiles in front of you. “This.” Explosives? “We’re going to blow up a missile and pierce through the hull, then continue blowing them up until we get to the main hangar bay.”“Isn’t there a better option?” you ask.“Well, I could sit here for three days and cut our way through the hull graded to stop turbolaser fire,” says R5. You roll your eyes. Fine, it will have to do. Sparks sets up position next to the Barloz, scoping out the place. You take a whiff, Killik. Hopefully they’re not awake. “Are we ready?” You all nod.Kuvasz rolls the first missile into position, then quickly arms it via holopad. “Get back!” You all run for it. In just a minute, it explodes, knocking a hole through the aging and rusted armor. “Alright, next one! Before the Killik come!” Vikker rolls the next missile down and drops it down. “Clear!” Another explosions. You both look down.“Hey, that looked like it cleared two levels!” says Vikker proudly. “What did I tell ya! Is this an idea or is this an idea!?”“Well, it was my idea,” says R5. Vikker sighs, rolling another missile down.You look at the hole more precisely. You’re jacking some of the Barloz’s hover dollies to carry as much aurodium as possible. And it looks like this hole is big enough for one at a time. A few more missiles are rolled in, and finally you both see the intense sparkling of aurodium inside. “By the Force…” Kuvasz stares at it. “That’s a lot of aurodium.”“Let’s get in there.” You roll one hover dollie in, then tie cables down onto it. “Kuvasz. You first.” He nods, mounting onto the dollie. The two of you lower him down into the depths of the Acclamator, carefully.“This is a lot of cash we’re after, even if we can’t have the entire thing,” says Vikker. “What are you going to spend it on, Rhys?” he asks.> “This much cash, I could just buy Dantooine.”> “Let’s not jinx it.”> “I don’t know, and I don’t care.”> Other
>>43989856> “Let’s not jinx it.”
>>43989856>> “Let’s not jinx it.”>> “I don’t know, and I don’t care.”
>>43989856> “Let’s not jinx it.”>Focus on the mission.
>>43989856>“Let’s not jinx it.”first rule of looting.never plan on spending before the credits are on an anonymous account in someone elses name and you on the other side of the galaxy.
>>43989856> “Let’s not jinx it.”>"That being said retirement sounds boring as hell so no nice beach house and floral shirt."
>>43989856>> “Let’s not jinx it.”
>>43989856>> “Let’s not jinx it.”We don't need to retire we just don't need to worry about money as much.
>>43989856>Let's not jinx it. I think I'm going to talk to the rebels. There's no way I'm going to be a free man in empire space after this.
>>43989959Why would we?Let them have our leftovers. IC wise there is nothing the Rebels will offer us.
>>43989959let's not mandos is the better options
>>43989959Eh, while this is a betrayal of sorts Rhys doesn't have the fondest memories of the old republic. That and he's killed alot of rebels; they may have hard feelings. If this ends (and it kind of looks that way) with Rhys breaking off entirely from the empire and being a privateer he would more likely go and do some work for more neutral factions, like the Furies or his hut buddy. Not to say we'd never hook up with the rebels, its just feels like Rhys would never run straight to them because of this, though it could be a catalyst for further down the road..
>>43989995>>43990022I was thinking of Doing some jobs for them and not actually joining them. Also why on earth do you think the Furies aren't rebels? They are explicitly against the empire and plan to free Mandalore from them.
>>43990041they want to restart the Mando empire the rebs are for restarting the republic
>>43990041Yeah but the Mandos are only interested in Mandalore and nothing else. To be honest, I rather not break off from the Empire entirely the benefits such as Kurt had really nice gear and ships. However, dealing with Lotte will just be sour.
>>43990072Dude by doing what we just did we pretty much completely cut ties with the empire. They are going to know that we took some of the aurodium
>>43990022N>>43990022>That and he's killed alot of rebels; they may have hard feelingsActually some of the rebels greatest members are former members of the empire.
>>43990072We cut our ties with the Empire completely. We won't be able to go back to Kuat without a really good slicer forging an identity for us.And spell it right for once. It's Kuat, not Kurt.
>>43990097Maybe, I'm hoping they won't notice too much since we only have one frighter and a couple starfighters that won't even measure to a ton of this stuff.
>>43990121Its the damn autocorrect and I only tried to spell it once. But damn, they had some nice stuff though.
>>43990130They'll sure as hell notice the hole into the cargo hold that we made, and combined with us wiping Lev and how we cut the comm with Lotte, it'll be pretty damn obvious what we did.
>>43990165So we should destroy it because we're not on good terms and depriving them of resources is a bonus.
>>43990164we have enough money now to buy a Star Destroyer NEW. burning a few spacedocks for it was worth it.
Now, what would be a good planet to hide on for the rest of our lives?
>>43990233None. I don't feel like ending off the quest this soon.
>>43990194That's going to make it personal for the Empire and whichever Moff was going to snatch this away from Lotte. But sure, let's do it. I want to see how much shit Rhyse can get himself into.>>43990202We gotta sell the stuff first, and get the money, and survive attempts to get that money from whoever finds out about it.
> “Let’s not jinx it.”You shake your head. “Let’s not jinx it, Vikker.”Vikker hums a little. The two of you let the cable go slack once you feel that Kuvasz has hit the bottom. “So, Dantooine’s out of the question then?” You look at him, a little angry. “Just saying, you did tell me that was your prime retirement home.”“Well, let’s not talk about retirement, okay?”He nods. “I’m guessing things did not go well with Lotte.”Vikker is really pushing your buttons tonight. But you can’t resent his curiosity. You and him have worked together for years after all. “Yeah, they didn’t. Could’ve gone better.” He nods, then pats your shoulder, like the father you really never wanted. You huff. “Feh. It’s in the past now.” You hear some skittering, like the legs of Killik! You look down the line on the Bailoff, then see a party of Killik climbing onto the roof. They’ve seen you. “Ah hell. Hold onto that rope, Vikker.” He nods, quickly lashing it around R5 as well for extra oomph. “Sparks!” Sparks screeches, turning his head to you.The Killik shriek, charging at you, spears held high.> Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.> More treasure is best. Help Vikker haul up the treasure.> Other

>>43990273>Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.Since they shrugged off am A280, I'd like to see if a disruptor does anything to them.
>>43990273>Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.we've got 5 shots may as well use them.
>>43990273>> More treasure is best. Help Vikker haul up the treasure.>Hand Kuvasz our disruptor.Guys we only have 5 shots on that thing. It won't make much difference.
>>43990311anon kuvasz is inside the ship
>>43990194I rather not, that will only get them more pissed.But damn this is really unfortunate since we made a lot of money blowing up rebel ships and that was fun.
>>43990364>A lot of moneyThis is a lot of money. That was chump change.
>>43990364Are you joking? We were ripped off for the ships we blew up.
>>43990273>> Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.Give Misiri a pistol in case Vikker double crosses us
>>43990311>handing Kuvasv the disruptor>when he's at the bottom of the hole we made, not at the top here with usAnon, why don't you pay attention and read the goddamn post.
>>43990374Fair enough, but we will only get a small fraction of it as is.>>43990378Maybe for the capital ships sure but the destroying of starfighters was decent. though 500 credits a rebel trooper was a steal during that time.
>>43990273> Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.>Plasma Grenades!I assume we have a few as we knew that a fight was a little more than probable.
I wonder if Kyle Katarn is going to show up in this quest. Would be pretty awesome to meet him. If he isn't after us that is.
>>43990273>Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.
>>43990460Gotta say, I love Kyle Katarn. The Jedi Knight series was my shit as a kid.It's too bad he's not canon anymore.
>>43990480It's probably for the best. Desann was shit.
>>43990273>> Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.
>>43990480I loved the Jedi Academy and jedi outcast. Outcast was where I was first introduced to Kyle and Academy was awesome to play. The darkside route in academy was way harder then the light side considering you had to fight katarn at the end.
>>43990435We're only going to be able to get a fraction of the market price of the loot.That's what happens when you try to fence a material without legal assistance.Either that or we have to only sell it in small amounts.
>>43990548The whole full nelson was a pain in the ass.
> Grab your disruptor, help Sparks and cover Vikker.You unsling your disruptor off your back then charge it to full strength. Sparks jumps up over to you, blasting the Killik with his laser cannons. The shots shred their bodies, sending pieces flying over the hull. But heedless to this, the Killik continue charging at you. You pull up your disruptor and let loose. One shot shoots right through a Killik. It writhes, shaking in pain as the innards of its body start disintegrating. Slowly, it dies completely, the only parts left of it not burning being the exoskeleton.You can see why this thing is illegal.“More!” yells Vikker. He and R5 are busy pulling Kuvasz’s haul up. You turn around to see another party of Killik crawling up the stern. Sparks chitters, immediately marching and blasting them with his twin laser cannons. “Kuvasz, get ready!”“I’m more than ready!” he yells.More Killik arrive, up over the side. You blast one with your disruptor. It flies right off the edge to his death, but the rest are coming quick. And Sparks is too busy with the other group. “Vikker!” you yell. Vikker and R5 haul up Kuvasz. He sits on the dollie, pulling down the most gigantic gun you have ever seen, a four barrel cip-quad from the Clone Wars. Kuvasz blasts them apart, shattering their bodies and slicing them to pieces with heavy blaster fire. “Where the hell did you get a cip-quad!?”“It was just lying there,” he says. “And as much as I disagree about killing these Killik and ransacking their home, I can understand that you might need some help.” He looks over to Vikker. “Your turn!” He nods, and the two switch spots. R5 quickly starts wheeling the dollie over to the ship, while Vikker goes down into the hold with the new dollie. Kuvasz grabs the rope tight, while sitting down and managing the cip-quad. “After this, we gotta leave! All the Killik are waking up!”> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.”> “Fair enough, last one.”> Other
>>43990606> “Fair enough, last one.”Tell the Killik our bosses will be back for the rest!
>>43990606>> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.”Lose something?
>>43990606> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.”>>43990628They're not our bosses anymore.
>>43990606>> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.”The money's good enough to risk someone dying.
>>43990606>> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.”Go for gold fortune favours the bold.
>>43990606>> "We go for one more haul and we're good."
>>43990641>They're not our bosses anymore.the bugs don't know that~
>>43990659It's a pointless statement.
>>43990606>> “Fair enough, last one.”
>>43990606> “Fair enough, last one.”Lets not be stupid, besides its not just our necks we're risking.
>>43990606>> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.>Have Misri activate the E-Web underberry blaster. Guys we have that shit for a reason. It will buy us time.
>>43990654Exactly. And if one of the others dies, then it's more money for the rest of us.>>43990659Why would you waste breath on that when we could be using that time to get more loot or in getting away? The Imperials we're going to wipe the bugs out with orbital bombardments, so bug resistance won't matter for shit.
>>43990606>> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.”
>>43990606>> “Fair enough, last one.”When the fifty year old mando says it's time to leave, it's time to leave.
>>43990606>“Fair enough, last one.”watch this somehow be "low grade" stuff ala Outlaw Star.
>>43990656>>43990654>>43990646>>43990641>>43990636Don't do it guys, kusav is old, Honorable, and helping us despite disagreements and pulls a quad out of nowhere: This is a death flag fellas. Don't do it. We were scared of these guys enough last thread! C'mon.
>>43990606>Have Misri activate the E-Web underberry blaster.
>>43990730One less person to split the treasure with.
>>43990691yes let us berry our enemies under our e-web
>>43990753this could work too, Istill suggest not being too greedy.
>>43990717I hope not. I want the loss of the fortune to have been completely the fault of the anons, having burned bridges all for nothing and the only one to blame are the anons for making emotionally charged decisions without thinking them through.
>>43990765Dammit, fucking type. Got distracted. But still why did we install this in the Bartoz if not for something like this.Though to be fair, I'm kind of nervous if we can make one more raid or not.
>>43990606>> “We go for one more haul and we’re good.”We need as much as we can get with everything going on use the ships cannons for one last go.
>>43990837Again the mando is saying we should leave. When one of them says that usually it's a good fucking idea.
>>43990817Regardless of if this pays out I seriously object to our employer stalking us via a spy so I have no problems ditching Lotte and her Empire.
>>43990606>> “Fair enough, last one.”dammit fine. trust the mando
>>43990817I wish you were a namefag so I could filter you.
>>43990817>Actually fooled by the shit Lottie says
>>43990858We knew that Lev was a spy from the very beginning. Did you seriously not think he was keeping tabs on us and sending info back to Lotte about our activities?
Aw man. We are going to have to change our ships ID and everything. And we just named it not to long ago.
>>43990895Yeah we did. We just trusted Lotte not to be a major bitch. Turns out we were wrong.
>>43990895I did. Our character didn't. This is called not abusing metaknowledge.
>>43990911I would've let her take it if we got a decent cut, but instead we got a "well maybe some guns or drugs."
>>43990895The issue I'm having (Not him) Is that I trusted Lottie. It's why I voted to not sell that shit to Xan consortium etc. Lottie's line about "helping" people in the Empire is a load of horse shit. She just wants to vie for position and power.I thought she wouldn't bend Rhys over backwards and fuck him. She's fucking him. Her whole speech had nothing to do with paying or compensating him. It was It's good I'm taking it all from you because!Paying him was a stretch. "Fuck... wait you want something... uh? Money? Guns? Drugs?"She hadn't even considered it apparently.I mean that's a whole new level of vapid and removed. Either schteel fucked up those lines... or she's a fucking narcissistic monster.
Going to do the mando job sounds good after this.Also, should we screw with them by telling the Rebels about the location? They might stop hunting us that hard.
>>43990995Ahh, thats great, send the rebels there too and get them to kill each other!
>>43990995We should tell the rebels the empire is about to get their hands on a huge stash of this stuff.>>43991008Unless they got really fast hyperdrives they aren't going to get there in time. Speaking of we should look into upgrading our ships shields, engines, and hyperdrive.
>>43991008And if the Imps ever ask us(now just a normal citizen, no longer a privateer) why they got there we just say they had a piece of the puzzle.>>43991019Or they'll send something to bomb the cruiser.Asset denial is a thing after all.
>>43990955Then we should have called her on it instead of just saying "No, mine!" And cutting the link. Yeah, that was Schteel, but only one person wanted to call her on it, and even then not very strenuously.
>>43991019forget upgrade we can buy a better ship!
>>43991033That's because it was a highly contested vote and it wouldn't have garnered support with tempers flaring. I mean shit it seemed like some people just wanted to say "Okay! So long as it's for the empire!"
>>43991033it was more than just one but I do agree it wasn't the ideal response.
>>43991041I like our ship. It can hold our fighter just fine. If you can find a ship that is an improvement over our currrent ship while being able to carry a fighter then you will get my vote.
>>43991033There wasn't just one, but people voting and not really looking at the opitons.
> “Fair enough, last one.”“Alright, this is our last haul!” You yell down to Vikker. “This is going to be the last haul!”“Thank goodness!” he yells back as he quickly shovels as many ingots onto the dolly as possible, while also pulling some into his jacket and into his bag as well. You turn back to the action and blast another Killik. Meanwhile, Kuvasz is tearing apart entire hordes with his cip-quad. Sparks fires a blast directly at a horde, scattering them. Even Misri is having a field day using the underbelly E-Web to keep them off the Lion’s Share.But when you stand up and look down at the ground, you see hundreds of Killik pouring out of the mounds.Yeah, you’re really glad you took Kuvasz’s advice.“Okay, I’m ready!” yells Vikker. You sling your disruptor, then take the cable from Kuvasz and let him focus. You and R5 quickly get to pulling up the dolly. However much Vikker has, he clearly has gotten more than enough to fill the dollie. When you pull him up, it’s already overflowing with aurodium ingots. “Okay, let’s go, let’s go!” You grab Kuvasz by his shoulders and stand him up. Sparks hops over to the Lion’s Share and fires off huge bursts to cover you all. R5 and you are the first aboard. Kuvasz and Vikker hurry up the ramp as well, along with the precious cargo. That’s two full dollies of aurodium ingots. You’re not risking a third. You run over to the cockpit, then burst and pull Misri out of the chair.“Hey! I can fly too!” she whines. Not now, please. You sit down and fire up the engines. Before the ramp can even close fully you’re taking off. Sparks jumps up and follows you, before the Killik can swarm over him. Your ship reports minor scuffs as the Killik throw spears and arrows at your ship, like rain against a rock. Already, you’re taking the ship into orbit.And now, you can rest easy. You got your haul.Finally, you got your haul.
>>43991127Dude that's a fucking capitol ship. It takes 52 people to crew. Try looking for another freighter.
>>43991163[2/2]--“Alright.” All of you, including R5 and Sparks, minus Lev, stand in the cargo bay. Misri is busy staring at the aurodium, the sparkling wonder apparently entrancing her. “We need to figure out our cuts. Uh… Kuvasz-““Say no more.” He grabs an ingot off one dolly and shovels it into his jacket. “I’m good.” You blink. “What, I don’t have use for riches. I’m a pretty simple man with simple desires. Wealth does not interest me, Rhys.”Vikker claps, smiling happily. “I love you, Kuvasz!” You have to admit, you gotta admire Kuvasz’s humility. “Well, I’ll just-“ You slap Vikker’s hand. “What? Come on!”“Vikker, you and me were the first ones to start out with this. It’s fair that you get a pretty meaty cut.” He rubs his hands together, grinning as best as an Aqualish can grin.> “50%”> “25%”> “10%”> Other
>>43991179we can buy enough droids to man the ship.
>>43991179http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/CR90_corvetteThere is a modified version of the CR90 that can hold two ties or X-wings.
>>43991185>“25%”You've been good to me and looks like we're going to be going freelance for a while.
>>43991185>> “25%”Are you gonna retire with your haul?
>>43991185>Other40%We get the other 45% and Misri what's left.
>>43991179droids/slave rigging/hiring crew
>>43991185>> “33%”And give kuvasz a bit more
>>43991185>>43991230>ThisAnd pays us back for Sparks parts.
>>43991241No. If something happens to the droids then we are fucked. Also we don't need a something the size of a capitol ship.>>43991200Looks good. We are going to have to mod it to hell and back to really make it shine.
>>43991266Why 33% ?
>>43991275the same could be said of any ship. the only solution is to not let anything happen to the crew droids or not.
>>43991275that corvette you just said okay to need 30 people to crew.
>>43991275the marauder is the best ship we can get for us shit it packs the same punch a ship a class above would
>>43991303Actually we only need a minimum of 7 to man it. We can suppliment this with droids.
Can someone tell me why 33%?
>>43991326I'm getting quite attached to this ship though... its a nice boat.
>>43991327I was thinking we get the mandos to help us crew it.
>>43991340Because 25 is apparently stingy. Schteel will do us all a favor and do the math at 25 and pretend it was 33.It's a sort of middle ground fallacy.
>>43991347we don't have to get rid of our ship we could have more then one ship maybe start up a group
>>43991347Well unless you can come up with a bunch of upgrades and parts for our ship to make it better then we are going to have to upgrade.
>>43991326and after our modding it will be able to take on even more. Bolting on more concussion launchers should give it even more firepower. maybe even get proton torpedo tubes.>>43991363a freelance flotilla sounds nice. so does Admiral Rhys
>>43991373Better Engines, generators and that turbolaser from the scrap yard?
>>43991378Seems better just to find like 3 more people get a better ship and sell the old one.
>>43991352The Mandos have their own ship which is bigger and not needed. Why would they give us troops when their deperately trying to patch up their own ship?
>>43991378dude I legit love the marauder so much my RP group was using it for our ship of the line while we were gaining power during the clone war
>>43991421I honestly prefer the CR90. That seems easier to get and handle then the Marader.
>>43991407That's nice. However I don't feel like working with a group of 532 min need to crew the damn thing.>>43991407Because they like us somewhat? Honestly I would rather grab a freighter from the YT series and convert it into a pocket carrier.
>>43991441the CE90 is seen as a rebel ship
>>43991407I feel sort of obligated to send a few bars over to the mandos to help with the reconstruction cost of their ship. We did hurt it abit and we want to be on good terms with them, now that we're out of Imperial protection.>>43991467Not at this point, its still sees use as a Diplomatic ship. Still don't want it though.
>>43991447Hvae you looked up the YT series?I did, and the Bartoz in terms of how it is shaped and it's cargo capacity, makes it a better pocket carrier then the YT-Series.
Is there really any advantages to using a smaller ship? I mean faster engine, better armor and shields, more weaponry... I just don't see a downside to getting a large ship as long as we can buy droids to man the thing.
>>43991492That is your dick talking.We are getting their sword to improve relations. We have to focus on our own endeavors.
Well what about ships from this company?http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Class_720_freighter
>>43991467Not really a lot of the bigger Rebel ships have their origins of being made or used by the empire on some capacity.
>>43991512Improve it faster.You do realise we still have that huge bounty on us and we need protection. fast.
>>43991512Dick please stop posting. I don't want to get banned for posting porn. Again.
>>43991511Because the Barloz, while being a fat sack of crap, is *our* fat sack of crap, and people adore taht sympathy generated from our first ship.Personally, I do think it'd be nice to trade up to something larger like a CR90 Blockade Runner or maybe a low-budget offer from Kuat Drive Yards, if they still will welcome us?
>>43991527Improve it faster? Let the Mandos handle the ship on their own. and we do their missions. If we want immediate protection improve the shit we have.
Hm. Looking at the Ghtroc 580 would better suit our purposes then the 720 It has a much bigger cargo space.http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Class_580_freighter
>>43991552we are never buying from KDY we stole from the empire
>>43991552We ain't getting nothing from Kuat drive yards.>>43991557Dude we need protection as soon as possible.
>>43991525Do all of that company's offerings look like gigantic Space Turtles? And because it's a less popular company that has gone out of business, it might be hard finding replacement parts if things break.
>>43991585And how much influence do the Mandos have? They only have one Capital ship. At least the Hutts have their own connections and a trade fleet.
>>43991594It's cargo displacement is horrible as well.
> “33%”“33%,” you say. He pumps his fist, nodding to you. “34% goes to me, 33% goes to Misri.”Misri flinches, then looks over at you. “Wait, I get a cut?” You nod to her. Vikker pats her on the back, smiling to her. Kuvasz nods admirably. “B-… I-… I didn’t even- I don’t know even know what to do with this much money!”“Well, it’s pure aurodium. Each ingot…” Vikker pulls one off of a dollie, presenting to Misri. “Is worth about one million credits. We have eighty ingots here. That means about… twenty seven million for me, for Rhys, and for you, Misri.”Misri looks at you. “What am I going to do with twenty seven million credits?” The look on her face is pure shock, excitement, confusion, embarrassment, and all other range of emotions all at once.“Well, maybe you can pay me off for buying the improvements to Sparks.” She tilts her head, sarcastically. “Look, it’s yours. You earned it.” She smiles happily, looking to the ingot Vikker gave her. “We earned this. We would’ve earned a lot more I think if the Empire wasn’t looking to screw us.”“Right,” says Kuvasz. “However, the credits aren’t valid just yet. We need to get this stuff melted down, and then shifted back into circulation, blah blah blah, basically it’s not valid until we see this perfectly converted into credits.” You nod. That’s correct. And probably the one thing you hate about treasure finding for aurodium, the credits aren’t instant with it. “You have a friend who can do that for us, Rhys?”“I do, his name’s Rotta. He’s down on Coruscant. We’ll swing by and visit him.” You might even give him an ingot, just to make sure you don’t ever end up in his debt again. As nice of a hutt he is, you know not to end up in the debt of one. That’s just how the galaxy works after all. “Right now though, we’ll take a rest and I’ll chart a course.”Where should you go first?> Coruscant> Tatooine> Smuggler’s Haven> Other
>>43991604They have a capitol ship full of mandolarian warriors. Also I would rather not work with the huts beyond our friend.>>43991594>>43991623The 580 is much better. As for parts we are going to be modding the shit out of that thing. Unless of course you guys want to stick with our current ship and mod the crap out of it until it is better then most ships that are normally considered better then it.Also you should look at when that company was active. It was active during this part of the time line.
>>43991663>Othertime to random walk for a few weeks.
>>43991663>> CoruscantFuck the scavvers, let's get some premium shit already!
>>43991663>> TatooineGrab the darksaber. Maybe courtesy call to jabba.
>>43991663>> TatooineWe should probably get a new ID for our ship and change it's name.
>>43991663get in contact with our Not!Slaver shop buddy and ask about any ships she can get her hands on.
Before we head to coursant we need to change our ships ID and registry. We are going to be a wanted man in the empire after this.
>>43991727She's a scavver, not a pirate: if she grabs a ship, it's gonna be in pieces, not whole--and not all those pieces are guaranteed to be working.
>>43991726Thats a good idea.Also we should go through our ship with a fine toothed comb with the reprogrammed Lev to see if there are any tracking beacons on it.Then we can space it on Tantooine and give the authorities the slip.
>>43991663>> CoruscantBetter melt this shit down and ask Rotta about the dark saber.
>>43991749Might as well send out feelers. Even if she can't get her hands on anything worthwhile she might be the only person this side of hutt space willing to deal with us.
>>43991766You think going to the capitol world of the empire after we just cut ties and stole some stupidly valuable metal from them is a good idea?>>43991773That's probably going to change once word gets out that we have cut ties with the empire.
Someone in the last thread recommended a Raider Class Corvette. We could get one of those, convert the cargo bays (because every ship military ship has a cargo bay) to hangars for fighters, crew the rest of it with our currently trusted crew and a bunch of R-series droids. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Raider-class_corvette
>>43991790Coruscant is a big fucking planet, anon--it's like a 40k Hive World without the 40k scale. The underlevels of the planet are pretty fucking lawless.
>>43991807Just from this sentence I can tell you have no idea how space travel works in star wars around major planets like Coruscant. There's a reason I want to change our ship's regestration and ID along with grabbing a few fake ones. If we go with our current ones we are going to get caught right away.
The marauder is easily the best choice as long as we can use droids to crew the thing.
>>43991857As much as I hate to admit it. (and I kind of do since I like the CR90)This anon is right, it is almost double the cost of a CR90, it has it's own hanger which can house our Bartolz, and fighters.
>>43991857No. Fuck off. Using droids is just asking for someone to hit us with a virus and take them all out.
>>43991846Then would you kindly inform those of us who are so ill informed of how space travel works in the SW universe?
>>43991895What are you suggesting then? we need 167 Crew members to man it (52 minimum)
>>43991895any ship larger than ours is going to require either a crew or droids to run it. Besides as soon as the droids are infected so would any other ships systems regardless of humans in the loop or not.
>>43991926I'm fine with our ship right now to be honest, dunno why so many people want to trade her in.
>>43991919How about a compromise: we don't use the whole droids to run the ship, we just take out their brains and automate a lot of the ship's functions with the astromech droid brains, with our little band still fulfilling a couple things from aboard the bridge.It's like Star Trek, except instead of a nameless crew in the hundreds and all the stars in the bridge crewing the ship it's only the bridge crew and a cluster of droid brains.
>>43991943Because it's woefully inadequate in pretty much every way?
>>43991897Not him, but basically Coruscant has a population the size of New York dedicated to flight control, and they cross reference every ship with known criminals, dissidents, and Starcreds Coffe Baristas who misspelled the Moff's name when he was a low level bureaucrat. If you have a connection to them already set up, you can MAYBE get around it if they're feeling generous to honor the bribe.We probably won't have that level of connection.
>>43991894That Anon is also an idiot. All it takes is one virus and then we lose the droids needed to crew it.>>43991897Basically when you arrive around major planets like corucsant they ask for stuff like your regestration and id and then they check through their records if you or your ship is related to any known crimes. After that they give you a flight path down to the planet.>>43991919>>43991926Then we don't get a ship larger then ours.>>43991943Because a few idiots with a hard on for a capitol ship want one.>>43991949How about we actually play smart and don't buy a fucking capitol ship just after we fucked over the empire.
>>43991965How? It works fine for our purposes.
>>43991895we could just have a backup crew of inactive droids not hooked up to anything.
>>43991943We're not trading it in, http://starwars-exodus.wikia.com/wiki/Marauder-class_CorvetteIt can house 12 star Fighters and 2 Shuttles. We can probably house it, and maybe turn it into a Sub once we add sensor decoys.
>>43991981Especially after all the great upgrades
>>43991981It's not a capitol ship. That's why.>>43991988No. We don't need a capitol ship. Hell it would be a major money sink.
>>43991997We're not getting that stupid thing fuck off with that.
>>43991981well it has a warpdrive rating of 2, compared to any normal threat posed by angry imperials the shielding is inadequate to allow us to flee (which we can't because their ships are faster) and its weaponry is mostly centered around taking out Rebel starfighters
>>43992011We have 27,002,600 Credeits right now, maybe a bit more if Misri pays up for the Sparks upgrade. the Maruder class costs about 2,398,000 overall not that much of a money sink.
>>43991997I want to fill that thing with Sparks's friends.
>>43992039Why not, I understand about not being into your preferences, I prefer the CR90 myself.But even I have to admit it's a decent ship.
>>43991997You and all your friends need to take their heads out of their ass and realize we don't need a fucking capitol ship. And I don't care how much you like it from the game you are playing with your friends. We don't need one.>>43992046That's what upgrades are for.>>43992048It's a fucking money sink. We can upgrade and trick out our current ship to be much better then it is.
> Tatooine--With Tatooine as your next destination, you’re already making a list of things to do when you arrive. One, get a fake registry and new ID for your ship. You’re keeping the name, just because. But everything is going to need to be changed. You don’t know if Lotte will do anything to soften the damage against you, especially if they find out you stole about eighty ingots worth of money from them. Either way, it’s the safe option. But other than that, you will have to pay a visit to Jabba.Ugh. That means probably seeing Oktovard again. Selkath scum.You shake your head, writing it all down in your holopad. Kuvasz and Vikker have already retired for the night. With R5 watching over the cockpit, you remain in your quarters. After all, you never did find sleep easy since Flight School. You sigh, rubbing at your eyes. Your eyelid are feeling heavy but that’s the most you’ll ever get.Your door opens. “Rhys?” You look back to see Misri, twiddling her fingers a bit. She’s wearing only a dirty tank top and black sleep shorts. You purse your lips a little, looking up those fine curvy legs up to her hips. “Hey. Um, thanks for the really big cut by the way.” You nod. “Um… so Vikker told me about what happened, with you and Lotte.”“I didn’t even tell him what happened but that damn Aqualish can read me like a book,” you mutter. “Yeah, it’s happened. Let’s deal with it.”“Okay, well um…” She steps inside. “Look, Rhys. Just standing next to you, I can just feel your negative waves just come at me. And yet, you don’t really feel angry.” She frowns a little. “Are you sad?”[1/2]
>>43992089anon we can not make our ship better then it
>>43991895How would that even work?
>>43992097[2/2]You sigh. “Very.” You motion to the bed, and she takes a seat. “Misri. Back at Flight School. They trained us to be like pack hunters. Everyone in our little group was our family away from family. For Lotte, her family disowned her when she attended the Academy, Alderaan is not exactly a planet that supports the Empire after all, and the Ulgo family is a very traditionalist kind of people but…” You wave it off. “Whatever. The point I’m making is that… back at Flight School, we were family. All of us.” You slouch, leaning back in your seat. “I don’t know what would compel Lotte to just… abandon her family like this.”Misri nods, looking around your room a bit awkwardly. “Yeah, I see. Well…” She sighs quietly, then says, “My door’s always open if you’re willing to talk.”…She tilts her head. “No flirty back and forth tonight?”> “Not tonight.”> “Well, just showing up in those shorts and that tank top is enough flirting for tonight.”> “Well, I can put you to sleep with more stories from Flight School. How about that?”> Other
>>43992083Because we don't need a capitol ship? If we want we can mod the hell out of our ship and upgrade it.>>43992116>> “Well, just showing up in those shorts and that tank top is enough flirting for tonight.”
>>43992116> “Not tonight.”
>>43992116>> “Not tonight.”>> Other"Thanks kid. Go to bed. Wanna watch the star light for a while."
>>43992116> “Well, I can put you to sleep with more stories from Flight School. How about that?”
>>43992116>“Well, I can put you to sleep with more stories from Flight School. How about that?”
>>43992083At the end of the day it's too large. It's going to balloon things in the quest out of proportion. It's a full on capital ship.How many small jobs are pointless by having the ability to drop in deploy a squadron of fighters and open up with turbo lasers?
>>43992116> “Not tonight.”>> “Well, just showing up in those shorts and that tank top is enough flirting for tonight.”
>>43992116> “Not tonight.”or>“Well, I can put you to sleep with more stories from Flight School. How about that?”Just being suitably bummed out is good. We just got fucked over by a "friend."
>>43992111They use a communications link or something similar to hack into our ship?>>43992140>>43992141>>43992147>>43992150So is there a reason none of you want to flirt with Marsi? I mean you didn't with the mandos and now your not doing it with the girl that came to our room in a tank top and shorts.
>>43992116>> “Well, I can put you to sleep with more stories from Flight School. How about that?”
>>43992133There are physical limits to upgrading.This ship will never have shields as good as the marauder, will never be as fast as a marauder or even carry as much cargo as a marauder.
>>43992181We kinda did with Oujo Mando
>>43992154Well that means we'd become less of a smuggler and more of a pirate lord. We have enough to make our own little corvette flotilla, if we cared to splurge. Stake a claim in the Outer Rim, make a name for ourselves among the Hutts and the Rebels and the Empire.
>>43992089I'm not even that anon, just looking at the stats convinced me. Yeah but how many upgrades do we need to add to the Bartoz before you are satisfied. Probably can do both. >>43992154Isn't that meta gaming? besides we can pull a Rebels with their freighter and their CR90/
>>43992154they're only pointless if your running costs are higher than your pay. Really a well made ship shouldn't run is to the ground with repairs and I don't really know how schteel will handle fuel.
>>43992181If it were that easy, the Trade federation and the Droid Army would have fallen a long time ago.Their not hooked up into some massive computer like in the Phantom Menance.Though Buying astromechs to serve as the crew will be a bit pricy.
>>43992199At the end of the day there is a bit of a scale problem now that we've come into pretty fucking good money. We can get so fucking much that it's not even funny, and that's turned this from "scraping together a living from the dregs of society" into "XCOM endgame where you can buy anything and everything and have the best shit."This big of a scale-up has effectively turned us into a goddamn Space Pirate King Harlock when a lot of people still want to scrape up a living like Cowbow fucking Bebop.
>>43992181Me, I'd absolutely flirt with a cute girl in a tank top and shorts (assuming that I ever figured out how to talk to girls that weren't childhood friends). But our character has just had a hard day of getting stabbed in the back by an old friend, who proceeded to try and bribe herself back into our good graces with what amounts to a rock of coke. She didn't even try to give us a full cut.Only slightly unrelated, we should do a full check of the ship for tracking devices. I bet Lev planted at least one.
>>43992286Well this was the big stash, if you wanted to do that we would have left, or did the bounties first.
>>43992116>> “Not tonight.”>> “Well, just showing up in those shorts and that tank top is enough flirting for tonight.”
>>43992232Dude stats aren't everything. Honestly what on earth would we need a capitol ship for.>>43992224That sounds boring.>>43992199So? We don't need an marauder. >>43992265The trade federation didn't use slaved units after naboo due to that very problem.>>43992286We can just upgrade the hell out of our ship and keep doing small time stuff for the adventure.>>43992310Just because we got a lot of money doesn't mean we have to stop doing small time stuff.
>>43992310>expecting /tg/ to into logical plot scaling and plot progression
>>43992339We don't need a better ship? Then why bother upgrading this one?
>>43992375Let me rephrase that better. We don't need a ship that fucking big. We don't need a capitol ship. We can just take our ship and upgrade it like Han does the falcon in the legacy eu of star wars.
>>43992339so we get a slicer of our own to handle cyberwarfare?
>>43992339Dealing with people coming after us, Survivability ?, Better armament? I could go on.Also why would you think we would get hit by a virus by something that was corrrected after the battle of Naboo. >We can just upgrade the hell out of our ship and keep doing small time stuff for the adventureWhat? >Just because we got a lot of money doesn't mean we have to stop doing small time stuff.Again, what?
>>43992403so it's just a preference thing for you?
>>43992416Wow. You really are a fucking moron. Want to know how the whole being hit by a virus thing/one big weak point to take out all the droids was fixed? By not having them all connected/slaved together. And again we don't need a fucking capitol ship to survive the empire. It's a fucking money sink.Honestly I'm starting to wish we never learned about this treasure. It's apparently causing people to lose their ability to think considering that they believe we need a huge ass capitol ship for a group of four people.
>>43992403That's because Han Solo was a bit of a bum, and won the Falcon on a poker match.We have more resources available to us.While the Marader mught not be the a Capital ship i want, I do think a capital ship is a good investment. Especially if they have their own hanger.
You know, something to consider might be that there's no way we're getting away from this clean. We're gonna lose this fortune because some bullshit drama's gonna happen, and we're gonna be back to scraping from the bottom of the barrel, except it's gonna be a helluva lot harder finding friends now that we've cut ties with the Empire and the Rebels still hate us for killing their dudes and on top of all that this struggle is gonna be rendered moot.
>>43992501possibly but I hope not.
>>43992501Makes sense to have the money kept liquid.Also, we really should leak the location of the stash to the rebels just because.
>>43992476again, what makes you think we're connecting them all together in one big core?
>>43992535We should. Imperial salvage operations should take a while. Especially if they want ALL and not just bombard the place to bits. That means sending in stormies. Enough time for a squadron of snubfighters to bomb the wreck completely.
>>43992501With all this arguing, I think German just might in order to stop the arguments.
>>43992461No it's a common sense thing. We have a four man crew. A four man crew does not need a capitol ship. basically what you all are suggesting is the same logic that those people that win the lottery have when they decide to by a big ass mansion they don't need when they have a small family.>>43992494First off Han wasn't a bum after the new republic was formed. He still had the falcon then and still kept upgrading it. Second It's not a good investment. For one it's going to make us stick out like a sore thumb. When you do something like this you don't go and buy a big ass ship.>>43992536What do you think slave circuiting them together is?
>>43992521I hope so. Getting a treasure is only half of getting money in our pocket, and we burnt out bridges before we can get this loot turned into cash.
>>43992561I hope he does. People are going full retard and thinking that buying a big ass obvious capitol ship from the clone wars won't make us stand out at all.
>>43992565Because he didn't take a freaking admiral position or gotten a big payday in credits. Not to mention no one was after him.Because we're not using Pre Naboo-B1 Battle droids.
>>43992589Why not apply the same reasoning on how the Rebels and Mando kept at it?
>“Well, I can put you to sleep with more stories from Flight School. How about that?”“Well I can put you to sleep with more stories from Flight School. How about that?”She continues to stare at you. “Wow. Did what happen with Lotte really mess you up that bad?” You shrug. “Goodness. Well, I’m not desperate enough to sleep through your stories, I will tell you that.” You frown a little. Are you really that boring of a storyteller? You shake your head. Whatever. “But hey, I’m here to listen though for anything other than your stories. I know how painful losing a friend can be. And down in Coruscant, you didn’t get to have a lot of friends.”You nod. “Fair enough.”She stands up, then hugs you, placing her head on top of your head. You gently grab her arm, mulling over it. “Look, don’t let it eat at you. Me, Vikker, Kuvasz, R5, Sparks. We’re going to be here for you. And we’ll never betray you. I promise you that much.” You look up at her, furrowing your brow. “Just something to keep in mind.” She lets go, swaying her hips a bit. “Plus, you get to look at these guilt free…” She points to her hips, smirking. Her smirk drops when you don’t respond. “I can see you’re still a bit sad.”“A little,” you say.She nods. “Alright well. I’ll let you get to whatever you’re doing. Don’t stay up too late though, I might need your advice on what to do with Lev in the morning.” You nod, waving her off. “Good night, Rhys.” She slowly shuts the door behind her.[1/2]
>>43992565I'm not in favour of buying the marauder because it's bigger. I'm in favour of buying it because it's better. The people that buy those mansions have swimming pools and tennis courts.The Empire is already going to know we skimmed a lot of money from them. Who the hell else is going to go after us just because we bought a ship?Making our ship hack resistant shouldn't be too hard as long as no one gets physical access to the drones themselves.
>>43992673[2/2]You sigh, then look at your holopad. You flip out of the to-do list and turn to something you keep away from everybody else. From Misri, from Vikker, even R5 doesn’t even know this is on your holopad.Pictures of your days in Flight School. You scan through them. The day you were sworn in. All of you, in your black uniforms, your hands held up as you swear your oath to Emperor and Empire. Lotte next to you, Pil behind you, Russ in front of you with that smug smirk on his face. Another picture, a more candid photo of you advising Pil over a holopad inside the cockpit of a TIE Fighter.And one last picture. A picture of you, Lotte, Pil, and the rest of the class, celebrating your first combat victory over a band of pirates. No casualties that day. That day you were became an ace with seven kills. Lotte with her arm around you, Pil laughing his butt off, and you just trying to act cool.You sigh. Better days. When you still had a family.
>>43992501>We're gonna lose this fortune because some bullshit dramaIt doesn't even have to be bullshit, just regular crime drama from the fact we're trying to fence a couple million credits.That's enough for many people to consider backstabbing an old friend.Rotta's our only fence, but he's a Hutt. What if someone in his organization is a plant for his uncle, an they decide to relieve us of our fortune?Or any number of former friends and new enemies. It doesn't have to be bullshit if we've already pissed off two major players in the galaxy and most of the ones left have no vested interest in keeping us alive, especially if they could take our money AND turn us in for a bounty to get paid twice.
>>43992693And that's it for tonight's chapter of Star Wars: Fortune Hunter. Jesus fucking Christ things went by fast and we're already at page 10. I'm going to need to do something about this. But whatever. Tomorrow, Magical Girl Liberty returns. Sunday will be a tossup day.Follow at: https://twitter.com/GermanSchteelAsk at: http://germanschteel.tumblr.com/See you next time.
>>43992716GG man, see you next time
>>43992716Umm German, Should I put down the 27 Mil to our credit list?
>>43992615Are you really that autistic? I flat out told you han wasn't a bum after the new republic was formed and that he still kept the fucking falcon for a reason. He could have easily brought a capitol ship if he wanted with the fucking money he had. Maybe you should stop fucking thinking bigger means better. Honestly it's tards like you that are going to kill this quest real fast due to us getting found by the empire because you couldn't use common fucking sense and logic as to why buy a capitol ship is a terrible idea.As for not using pre naboo-b1 battle guess what? That doesn't matter. If your going to slave circuit something together it doesn't matter what you use. It will still have one big ass weakpoint that if you take it out then you disable the droids.>>43992654Because they have enough fucking people where having a capitol ship is a good idea. If we were the leader of a group of several hundred people guess fucking what? I would be all for buying a maurder.>>43992678Your to stuck on it has better stats therfore it most be better for us. It's not. Look at our situation. We have a group of four people. A group of four people don't need a capitol ship.Also buying one is going to grab the empires attention. Right now they have no idea where we are.>>43992716Please explain to these idiots why we don't need a capitol ship.
>>43992764Not until you actually get them in credits, no.>>43992765You don't need a capitol ship because A. they require large crews which you don't have and can't hire due to the circumstances of your reputation and B. simply crewing a ship with droids is incredibly expensive.
>>43992716Shit. I missed it all. Ah well.
>>43992716Thanks for running, boss.
>>43992765>>43992792Ok so how about the CR90 Blaockade runner?
>>43992792Thank you. See everyone? The GM has spoken.
>>43992765on the other hand you seem to be stuck on the fact we are four people. I'd be for the Marauder even if we were alone because size gives options and security.>>43992792oh well if it comes from the boss himself. I have no idea why it would cost that much.>>43992822and you're just being a right cunt right now.
>>43992792Ok so any changes in faction then?
>>43992833>on the other hand you seem to be stuck on the fact we are four people. I'd be for the Marauder even if we were alone because size gives options and security.That's cause your an idiot incapable of critical thinking.>>43992833>and you're just being a right cunt right now.You would too if you had to explain several times why we don't need something that expensive to someone. It's like talking to a bratty child that's wants something that looks nice but is actually complete and utter junk.
>>43992820I won't rule out the CR90 or small ships of its size, but anything larger will require a drastic change in tone for the Quest. It'd go from adventure/action with bits of drama to well... ship and droid management. I'd prefer a tighter cast of characters and of course that means a small ship.>>43992839Empire is now Hated
>>43992866you know what fuck you
>>43992876Does that mean we can't cash in on the Bounty Lotte gave us?
>>43992876really should not have throw all this money at us then dude
>>43992903Least we can think about getting a CR90 at least.
>>43992948Nah we probably need it now more then ever considering both major forces hate us.
>>43992937You can still cash it in. Whether or not it'll repair your reputation with the Empire is to be seen.>>43992948That's my bad but it will be fixed.
>>43992876So we have four people, okay--and we can get anything up to a Blockade Runner but it changes the tone of the quest.What if we just got a bigger fucking cargo hauler? The Wild Karrde from the Legends canon was a bulk transport modified with heavy armor plating and a concealable heavy turbolaser armament, topped off with a larger power source and capital-ship tier shields. There was also a high-powered sensor suite that could transmit and receive comms from across the galaxy.The Karrde, at its most packed, had a crew of ten--the ship it came from could run on a crew of six. And with 90,00 metric tons of cargo capacity, it's a huge boost in fuckabaout room.
>>43992981So something causes to devalue/steal/ our profits then? Or will you inflate prices?
>>43992981Schteel the CN90 is only 45 meters smaller then the marauder and are the same ship class
>>43992981Actually I don't have an issue with the money at all. I'm the dude that doesn't want to upgrade to a capitol ship when we only have four people.>>43993033Unlike the marauder you only need eight people min to run it.>>43993004How rare are those ships? And how's the speed?>>43992981
>>43992981While I kind of understand you not wanting to let us keep most of this money what the hell did you really expect to happen?
>>43993060It's not rare at all--it's a freighter. We could easily blend in with the commercial shipping lanes if we kept all the goodies secret.Speed leaves something to be desired, but with as much money as we have, could easily be modified.
>>43993068He expected people to actually be capable of thinking and not being impulse buyers That would go after something we don't need at all.>>43993031I hope he doesn't. All he needs to do is put his foot down and explain why we don't need a fricken capitol ship.>>43993090Sounds good.
>>43993104I meant what the hell did he expect to happen that we wouldn't be getting this money?
>>43993090Can we fit our Barltoz.>>43993060So you have an issue with the CR90 then since it's a capital ship?>>43993068Probably hoping we do the bounties first.
>>43993090The issue is that we apparently aren't going to be allowed to keep the money due to a bunch of people that can't think.>>43993125While it's a capitol ship it's also a corvette that only needs 8 people min in an unmodified version to run it. My issue with the maurader was taht we needed five hundred some people min to run it.
>>43993124>>43993068Was kind of hoping you wouldn't have arrived so soon to the Bailoff, but that's probably my own fault when I said that whatever party was hunting it down would find it on its own.
This could be perfect to refit into a real beast of a Corvettehttp://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Cargo_Empress-class_super_freighter
>>43993060you do not use the min to run your ship unless you want shit to go bad
>>43993156stop fucking lieing the min is 52 that is easy as fuck to get
>>43993175There is nothing wrong with using the min amount of crew needed.>>43993198Huh your right. I could have sworn that it was more then that. And no it's not that easy to get.
>>43993125We could probably fit it in, yeah--but we'd need to modify the craft to become a freighter-carrier, and at that point, I'd rather carry a fighter squadron as a nasty surprise to any pirates thinking we're an easy target.>>43993104It's also nicely affordable--the transports new cost around 4 million credits, used around 2. Modifications could probably cost a bit more, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
>>43993031>So something causes to devalue/steal/ our profits then?First there's the question of how much Rotta will want of the cut; we're not going to get market value since we don't have the Empire (love them or hate them, they're still the legitimate government on most planets) backing us to make jewelers/whoever accept the loot at market value.So, first we have to get false codes and papers for our ship, then we have to get to Coruscant, then we have to meet Rotta, work out a deal, wait for him to line up buyers, then wait for the deals to go through.There's a lot of steps in turning metal into credits, and we can be absolutely fucked out of the money at any step, and it doesn't even have to be a bullshit reason but just plain greed.
>>43993198>that is easy as fuck to getWe could only get a single merchant to sell to us at Smuggler's Haven, and even then only because she was so distrusted by everybody else on the entire station. I think you underestimate just how many bridges we burned today.
>>43993168Well the reason people voted for it was to avoid that yes. So are you going to use some narritive plot to deal with the large influx of cash?
>>43993284I hope we keep SOME of it, all these people whining about it are making me a little mad.
>>43993316>>43993284I'm going to go with this explanation for now because this explains better than I could.While you do have the ingots now, until you get the credits pressed out, they're just incredibly valuable jewels.>>43993319Getting to keep the cash will be part of the challenge. I'm not COMPLETELY without mercy.
>>43993284and that's why you only convert small portions of your wealth into money at a time. We should go to several planets and convert at most a single ingot at any one location so that even if a few fall through no one will know just how much money we're handling.
>>43993319it is one asshole that does not want us to get things ever and wants the money to all get taken
>>43993314We can get them back. Hell we can get the rebels to ease up on us now that we aren't with the empire any more. Also the rebels we have killed were the ones that attacked us first. We didn't go rebel hunting.
>>43993316I'm predicting either the galactic market crashes or a flood of aurodium hits the market and devalues it so terribly it becomes as commonplace as plasteel.
>>43993362That's not going to happen if we are smart about it.
>>43993284even the stupidest methods of converting this stuff to money would at most take us back 40% even if we somehow lost 95 % of this stuff we would still have 1 million on our hands EACH
>>43993362That would assume I know anything about economic structure which I don't. Plus, sudden coincidences like that are kind of bullshit in my opinion anyway, I'd prefer if the money were lost because of people actually stealing it.
>>43993275Dude, I just looked your ship up and it's a modifcation of a ship we don't event have/Also it only houses one Starfight/Shuttle. Our bartolz can do that.>>43993314Well getting that bounty will help. That also means going through a bunch of rebels which I wish we could cash in.
>>43993421we are not getting the bounty dude
>>43993421>Well getting that bounty will help. That also means going through a bunch of rebels which I wish we could cash in.Why are we going to go after any bounties on any rebels? So far we haven't really done anything but kill rebels that have attacked us.>>43993386Could we become a mandolarion?
>>43993421Why deal with either the rebellion or the empire instead of staying completely solo forever, like we should have.
another potential freighterhttp://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Eliall-class_cargo_barge
>>43993454Anyone and anything can become a Mandalorian. But because of how split up and divided the various clans and Houses are, finding someone who will actually call you Mandalorian can be a bit tricky. But yeah, you can become Mandalorian.More Mandalorian than Boba and Jango Fett anyway.
>>43993386Ah, good to know what we are preparing for then with our cash.Other then the bullshit Lotte pulled was unacceptable in character, it seems we pulled the short end of the stick
>>43993421You lack imagination. That puppy has so much room we can convert the cargo hold to have life support systems and more racks for fighters and maybe even a holding area. Just because that particular vessel has that mod config doesn't mean we're married to that configuration.
>>43993481So was Lotte's hypocrisy of trying to appeal to our altruism and saving lives right after she had us sabotage Cygnar's attempt to get a replacement for the TIE Bomber that isn't a deathtrap, intentional or a misstep?Did she really have no intention at first of compensating Rhys? Because that's what it looked like in the beginning.
>>43993481Wouldn't we have to be trained by them first?
>>43993545Lotte's situation is actually a little bit of everything. Like you, she understands that you are family just as much as Pil or somewhat Russ too. She might have genuinely not known how to compensate you for the loss of such a huge score while at the same time trying to think about getting the treasure for the Empire at the same time by any means. She may have been even hoping that you found it, then left, then she could have stolen it while you were away with you none the wiser.>>43993559Most likely, though considering your feats of skill with a starfighter, you might be able to muscle your way in.Plus, Warmaster Vizsla would kill for that.
>>43993636>Plus, Warmaster Vizsla would kill for that.Kill to train us or something else?
>>43993673Kill for the fact that you want to become Mandalorian at all.
>>43993636The hypocrisy was just her flailing for a reason to have us give it up?Then she fucked up badly, and if they ever talk again, Rhys should slap her in the face with it. Having him sabotage the Missile Boat just so Kuat could keep the contract on one hand, then saying that the money would go to helping refugees when she knows it obviously won't with the other? That's a monumental failure; what, did she roll a nat1 on her negotiation check?
>>43993636Speaking of joining mandalorians I want to track down the mask of mandalore.>>43993698Kill as in she would kill us for daring to become a mandalore or that she would kill to know that we want to become one
