“Fifteen million? Sold,” Brekkan hastily screamed into his communicator, “deliver it to my station.”

“It’s full up,” the communicator barked back.

“What? What! No it isn’t,” he said quickly, scrolling through a hologram. He growled lowly under his breath, “give me ten seconds.”

‘The Black Guardian… no… The Willing Whelp… maybe… Hand of Titan Six… no, definitely no… Ah… yes, Matitatgzer. Matatitzger? Idk, whatever.‘

“Willhiam, sell Mitatizreg to the closest bidder,” he said into his communicator, putting his client on hold.

“Captain says they got a million on hand,” Willhiam replied back.

“Give them a loan for a million. Give them… 20 years to pay it back. That should be enough.”

“Got it sold, and it’s…” the communicator went silent for a second or two, “gone.”

“Perfect,” Brekkan grinned, returning to his previous call, “I expect it to be at my station within the hour. Don’t scratch the paint.”


A beautiful ship. The Matit, whatever, looked like it was retrieved from an ocean planet. The paint was nearly corroded off, it has some kind of green mold or algae growing on the top and the name of the freighter was faded and missing letters.

The Matit, is a Gremlin Class Freighter. It is approximately 200 years behind most modern day freighters and it still uses a Thermal-Nuclear Reactor wherein most of the others run off of Cold Fusion or Matter Fusion. It is 50 years behind it’s brother, the Goblin Class Freighter which has a Cold Fusion Reactor and 150 years behind it’s sister, the Queen Class Freighter which has a Matter Fusion Reactor.

The previous crew seemed to have taken good care of the freighter, but no one truly knows what happened to them. Brekkan swears that they just quit his service and left. Crews for hire question how and why they just happened to disappear. One last mission to the Oracle Galaxy and then the freighter is recovered. A supposed ghost ship, drifting in the asteroid belt of Ora Two, for ten years.

Those are of course just ghost stories and the Matit has been claimed by a new Captain. First things first, this new beauty needs a new name. Then, hopefully the new Captain has a crew if not he has twenty-four hours to man the freighter before it gets impounded by the DFC or the Division of Freighters Committee.

Hey everyone! I am working on the Preface for the OOC so you have the back story of how the captain happened upon the Freighter and why you are in debt. Trying to make it sound right.

Just to kill suspicions of abandonment.

I am currently being overworked and when I get home I have just a couple of hours to spend with my family before getting sleep. Just an FYI.

Patience can wear thin, but I have posted I think to be enough information since everything else I had is just background that doesn’t matter. I believe I hit all the necessary pieces of equipment to make a ship work.

Now to elaborate on how things will work.

To ensure that we keep things moving at a decent pace, a bed/sleep cycle will be used to skip time. Otherwise we’d be spending a lot of time really doing nothing. So basically how it will go, life as usual and when it’s stated that such and such is going to bed, when everyone goes to bed then time will skip to the next event. During this time skip, it is to be assumed that it is work as usual. Characters on autopilot doing their day to day tasks. This should keep a decent pace and the time frame period is going to be a minimum of three days and a maximum of seven days.

I’m doing it this way so I can be sure that everyone is ready to move on rather than it seeming that events occur in hours which won’t happen since each solar system will be different, with different security ratings and I am sure you wouldn’t stay in a low or nonexistent security system unless you are wanting to die very quickly.
---

The Market System will more or less be simple. You find goods at one place and sell them at another for a profit. Using the drones via the Mechanic is also incredibly simple but risky. Drones can mine, kill, scout, etc for whatever type of drone you have. These can be damaged and destroyed. Taking on side jobs, such as hunting a criminal work require a combat drone of any type, while there are drones that are non-lethal which are used by bounty hunters and slavers that can capture people.

I'll be a bit busy for the next few days, so I won't be able to put up a character sheet. Is there anyone planning to play engineer? I'd like to play that profession

I plan on making a Mechanic type character but it will also be a day or two before I can set up a character sheet.

I noticed that all the professions said unclaimed, so I put in for Captain. If this profession is claimed, please tell me and I will gladly switch to an open one.

@Smiter19 Are the two positions still marked Unclaimed (Pilot & Navigator) still up for grabs? This looks nifty.
