  • The Mercenaries.....Chapter 1

    'Colonel' Raymond Prescott looks around the wardroom at the assembled faces, inwardly smiling that he put up the sign at the door.....No Weapons In The Wardroom. That and the quartet of Marines enforcing the regulation in the passageway.

    "Welcome, gentlemen, to the Midway" he says, encompassing the not quite spacious room aboard the Tsushima-class Light Carrier. "I am tasked with coordinating the activities in this sector, hence our meeting here orbiting Refrak, the sector capital. First and foremost, we're in this business to get paid. And to do the jobs we get paid for. My job is to ensure that jobs are completed, and that contracts are not violated by either side. To that end I'll be holding your fees in escrow, and handling payment. I'll also be hearing any grievances from yourselves or from the clients. And finally, the Federation and the Kingdom didn't pay for my services, or provide me with what you see for nothing. If one of you decides to go rogue, and play pirate on your own, then it's my job to deal with that so the Sector Fleet doesn't have to."

    Colonel Prescott chuckles as he takes a draft from his beer with the clink of his prosthetic hand. "But let's play by the rules, what rules there are, and we can all get rich out here. There are quite a few jobs available. You'll find them posted for you all to see."

      I am interested in this bonded courier from Refrak to Jonov run and the Suppress Rebellion on Zatune. What else can you tell me about these missions?

          This is the one we would prefer, and are certainly equipped to do. However, we must have a partner in this that we can mesh with in a mutually supportive way.
          Andy and his Infantry would be ideal, but in no way can we deal with that all on our own.


          Failing that... we could take this other on one ourselves, if we are free to use our firepower to awe the locals as we see fit. And needless to say, our reports on what is gathered will be accurate to the decimal point.

            The client is not specific about the cargo. Horizon Corporation has several concerns in the sector.

            The rebellion is what it is. This sector was elf dominated before the war and is so by the treaty. Certain colonies have enjoyed a bit excessive free reign and the local governor is hiring to suppress these rebel elements.

              Oh, great, they will be thrilled to see us coming...

              Wait, dominated by, or populated by Elves?

              You said the first one so I will go by that.
              We're taking that job.
              However, it looks like a big one with a number of "colonies" involved, so we definitely need other units involved.

                  I want the freight hauling contract. I can join in on the rebellion bashing after I complete the run.

                    Note: once I get home from this long work trip I'll be posting up a schedule of basic expenses that are monthly....like maintenance on your gear..... or consumables. ....like missiles. ...or hiring costs.

                    Strikes me that it doesn't work to post up the vig for a job without you understanding what your costs are.

                        Do you really want a price war? We should really wait and see what the expenses for this run will be.

                          There is always competition. The weak, the strong, competition is the way of making sure that everybody knows its place. This aspect is very important aspect of life and it shows up especially in war. After all weak are the ones who die.
                          Mr Pruitt, I think you can agree on that as we both are soldiers. Healthy competition is always refreshing.

                            Ever watch the show "Storage Wars" where bidders make sure some other bidders pay way too much for a storage locker? Be careful what you ask for!
