"Nice of you all to make it." she said her tone sounded a bit bored. "The lady upstairs probably gave you a run down, but I'll reiterate for convenience, the job is simple, you sign on for a contract it lasts a few months, it'll be up to you, your payment will reflect your time spent with us, we provide roomand board on our ship, and Ammo for your mobile suit...within reason, you do what we tell you, it's typically smuggling, and if not that, general shipping, and occasioal paid robbery and scrap collection, scrap you take on the battlefield is yours, so long as it doesn't exceed your allotted space. If anyone has qualms about robbing people or breaking boarder laws of both the Mars Confederate and the Earth Union, now would be the best time to leave." she said. "If all of that sounds interesting, fun or just another days work, then you're in the right place." she added with with a smile.
    Adam hurried to the booth where Michail had gone with the dancers.

    He knocked on the door frame.

    "Mic, It's time to go. Works calling."

    "Yeah, I'll be there in a sec."

    Adam walked over to representative.

    "If you won't mind, my partner will be joining us in a moment. He's....occupied. My name is Adam Pacer and...." Adam looked behind him to see Michail coming out of the booth, dancers giggling as they left the room.

    "He is Michail Aestrom."

    Michail walker over to Adam and the rep, correcting his pants and shirt.

    "Pleased to meet ya miss....?" Michail asked politely.

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    Bob stopped dancing and just looked the man in the eye, smiles all gone replaced with a very serious face. (well as serious as Bob can be)

    "I can't take it any more" a smile starts to brake through "Ha HA the look on your face! It's priceless!"
    Bob finally starts to lose it and sits on the floor giggling.

    "The look on your face! HA HA HA! Did you really think I was going to activate a defense system with me under the ship with you? WOW your are gullible. My Friend that blue light. Ya the one all around you. I was serious feel free to walk into the light They are just landing lights."

    Starting to get back up and dusting himself off, still holding a full on burst of laughter from coming out.
    "Sorry about that I just couldn't resist. You looked so hopeful, such an easy target. Still friends?"
    Bob walked to the man, with his hand out.

    "Pailsen, Katarina Pailsen. XO of the Highway star." Katarina replied. "As for killing, well it depends on who is cheeky enough to attack us, or fight back." she said, hoping that the question wasn't from a loon, or worse yet a pacifist.

    Docks

    The dockworker was scared a bit shitless, but the man had a point, who would activate the defenses right here, in the dock of a heavily armed astroid colony full of pissed of soldiers. "Yeah sure I...guess you have a point, as for money, well I'd have to ask my employer, but what do you think is a good ballpark?" the dockworker was obviously not the guy in charge, but damned if he wasn't willing to try and negotiate at least some.

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    The smiles and happy thoughts dropped from Bobs face. He looked at the man standing in front of him.

    "wait a second....wait just one bloody freekin' second. You mean to tell me you want to make an offer to buy my Fluffy Bunny but you have to ask your mommy first?!!??? Besides I'm the one selling you should be the one giving me what you want to pay. That is how a negotiation works.'
    Going back to his chair and grabbing another beer. Bob grabs a piece of paper and starts writing something down. (in crayon)

    "OK I tell you what I will do. Hear is my price. ($800,000,000.00) If all goes well I will then show you all the wonderful toys that come with her." Bob moving in close and in a whisper "She has so many wonderful toys and little secrets to tell"
    Bob hands him the piece of paper, takes a step back and looks the man over.

    "one more thing do you believe in fairy tales or conspiracy theories?......."

    Docks

    The dockworker was scared a bit shitless, but the man had a point, who would activate the defenses right here, in the dock of a heavily armed astroid colony full of pissed of soldiers. "Yeah sure I...guess you have a point, as for money, well I'd have to ask my employer, but what do you think is a good ballpark?" the dockworker was obviously not the guy in charge, but damned if he wasn't willing to try and negotiate at least some.
    "Pleased to make the acquaintance. Adam already gave our names so we can dive into the matter at hand. Hundred thousand per gig sounds very reasonable, how ever I was wondering about the bonus... "

    "Mike please, I'm sure the bonus will be more than enough. "

    "I was simply inquiring about the sum that we could get by being extra good at the job. Rule number one for mercenaries , find out how much you get before putting your neck to the chopping block. "

    "Isn't that like rule number fourteen, after always read the fine print before signing? "

    "Adam, now's not the time for crude attempts at humor. "

    "Says the dry, wooden joke dispenser. "

    "Excuse my partner, he can sometimes be grating, he's from Earth you see. "
    Michail turned his attention back to Katarina.

    "So, the bonus. Can you give me rough estimate on it? "

    Adam was rolling his eyes. He and Michail had been working together close to an year now, but they still got on one another's nerves sometimes.

    Both of them had fought in the Decade Conflict, on the opposing sides. Adam in the ranks of the Earth Union, Michail in the Mars Confederation. The had both been leaders and both knew the bitter taste of loss. They we're very similar but very different at the same time. Both had felt a craving to pilot again after the war, return to the ordinary was not simply possible after their experience.

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    "Bonus reflects what scrap you sell us, and how many you shoot down, a few extra thousand every few suits, though if you take out a big guy, like a leader of another pirate band or an enemy commander that's been a pain in our asses, you'll make a pretty hefty bonus. She said before adding. "Of course that's relative to who it is, but depending on, it could be somewhere in the territory of paying more than an average job it's self. Like everything it's up for a bit of negotiation, god knows Lance likes Negotiating."

    -----------------------------------------------------

    "Well I uh have to get someone's clearance first of course, and especially at that price." The worker said "And I guess I believe in some conspiracy theories, I mean we were gonna be sold up shit creek by the Martians for one, but that's a long story...why?"

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    "Well you seem like a man of means some one who looks out for himself, maybe a bit of the old sell you out to make it big for me type guy. And I was just thinking that you might be looking to get a ship for yourself to do a little treasure ship/ghost ship hunting. But then you mentioned having to get permission, but like I always say Better to ask forgiveness than permission. I mean what are you gonna ask permission ALL your life..... I'm sure you have heard about the lost Jupiter expedition ship? I tell you what you find out about that price and I might let you in on what I found.... maybe. But then again we might be able to work something out, you know man to man....."

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    Tumbili calmly stood up and walked over to the room's entrance, stopping just a few feet from it and held out the pool stick in front of him. At that moment Carl came crashing through the entrance, stepping on the billiard ball that had been placed earlier which caused him to slip and fall forward, his head passing just under the pool stick. Right behind him came the two bouncers that had been giving chase since the women dancers' changing room. They tripped over Carl and hit their faces on the pool stick, cracking it on both ends and falling to either side of Tumbili. "Right on schedule," Tumbili nonchalantly said as he helped Carl to his feet. "I was originally going to turn down your offer," he stated, turning to Katarina, "but now that he's here I may reconsider." He reached into his pants pocket and held something in a closed fist. "Just humor me with something first."

    Carl looked around the room he landed in as he rubbed his head. "Oh hey, Scaven," he said, recognizing him, "long time no see."

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    "I mean I guess you have a point there" The dockworker said, "I know a guy who can get the funds, and I can suprise the boss with this ship after, and I mean...if we find the lost ship in the mean time...well...that's a bonus right." he said.

    -------------------------------------

    Katarina meanwhile sighed If nothing else, this guy knows how to plan. A bit showy though. she thought, yet she wanted him to cut to the chase "Fine but make it quick." she replied, she was on guard but made her self look nonchalant at least, enough time in the slums, and running low level mafia jobs taught her to keep her guard up, none the less the thing that was obvious was she was loosing her patience, none the less she was obviously at least int rested.

    -------------------------------------

    "Okay fine maybe I do, but what is it that they want me to move?" Lance asked.

    This was the hard part, Sierra knew, but she awnsered none the less "Gundanium Alloy, a new sort of it, lighter than normal, the martians know it's coming and it's a sort of show of good faith between them and Jupiter, that they'll help with their rebuilding efforts."

    "I see...and I imagine the Earth Union would love to know about this...that's why they want me to bring it in." he said "I'm quiet."

    "Well I was tasked with getting it there, any means I want. You're those means." she replied. "Lance this could be big, it'll secure the resources I need to properly turn this place into a real Haven, for those that the other powers out there have abandoned."

    Lance sighed "Spare me the speech I know. It's also something that if exposed could spark another war. And I'm sure that out there someone already knows about this damn thing...what's the pay?"

    "Twenty billion credits." She replied. 'Before the five billion signing bonus."

    "That important huh?" Lance chuckled.

    "Yeah, Carolyn will confirm, it's that important, I've been having her men pull double duties all week because of it." she said both to Lance and to her head of the main MS corps. "Lyon's meanwhile has been spread thin with his EWACS corps, it's why it's so quiet lately."

    "I see...make it twenty five billion, and the same signing bonus." Lance replied.

    Sierra sighed "I'll see what I can do."

    "See that it's done, you need me, no one else can get it there, besides, I could ask for allot more." He said with a sigh, he liked Sierra, he really did, and still sympathized with the cause, but this was a powder keg at best. "Don't worry, it'll be worth it I promise." he said uncharacteristically nice "Besides, me having more money is good for you in the long run, where else am I going to blow it all...Alpha 5's scrap yards?"

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    Bob looked at the dock man walking around him and with a sly smile

    "Yes I knew I could see something more to you. Just how soon could you get the money? and also enough of this we s**t I don't do we, there are enough people hanging around me as it is. What with Nigel always getting in the way and Jenn always trying to get in my .....Well nope not me my friend I will point you in the correct direction to find things but I'm out of the captains seat. I want a job where I can just do stuff. No more planing no more worrying about who does who, and who is where, and all that crap. You don't know if anyone is hiring do you?"

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    "You obviously know my résumé," Tumbili said, indicating the files that she had on all of them, "so why waste my ridiculously awesome talents on such trivial tasks?

    --------------------

    "Going to be glad to get it off of our hands, too," Carolyn chimed in, "since we're itching for some action. This guard detail crap is beneath our skills."

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    "You obviously know the ships reputation or you wouldn't of showed up." Kataraina said. "You think it's Trivial, the door's right there. Use it at your Leisure."

    ------------------------------

    "It isn't as much of a waste of time as your write it off as." Sierra said, but she shared the sentiment, partially at least.

    Lance was intrigued though "She has a point why didn't you just move it your self? Your fastest ship is about as fast as mine."

    "And allot more lightly armed, so we'd have to slow it down with an escort." Sierra explained "And while Lyons was up to the task, I don't want to take risks."

    Lance got his answer from it though it was boring "Works for me I guess, fine we'll take it there." he replied with finality, they shook hands on it. It was two fold, by all means he planned to deliver it, but more over he wanted to analyze it. He had theories about it but getting the Alloy's formula would be the real prize of this mission. Assuming it goes smoothly.


    ------------------------------

    This guy is insane, but this ship...I mean...there seems to be some truth to it. And this ship at least is real enough, crazy fast looking and weapons gallore outside who knows what else this guy hid in it. The worker thought "There might be someone hiring, I remember one of the higher ups talking about a meeting, let me call my friend real quick and we can have the money in a jiffy." he said. He was sure this ship would pay off, he wasn't certain on the price yet but none the less. "We can meet him near the club where that meeting it at, two birds one stone you know."

    Re: [RP] Mobile Suit Gundam: Hostile Frontiers

    "As long as your money is good I'm good."
    Bob was smiling again but he kept looking back up the ramp to the ship.

    "And a club sounds like fun, drinking, women, good times to be had by all. I do have one question. I understand that you are into Ornithology and that is fine, didn't think there would be any birds up here on an Astorid what with it being in space and all. I mean really how did they get here that would be one hell of a flight. But why would you waist good drugs on a few birds? Besides how would you get two bird to share so they could get stoned?? You my friend are a very strange man I will have to watch you."

    Suddenly spinning on his heals Bob starts screaming up into the ship
    "Nigel! Quite her down! I don't want to hear it. Yes I'm going to a club! And yes there will be FREEKIN WOMEN THERE deal with it. Nigel you need to get these people prepped and ready and this s**t better be ready when I get back!!!!"

    Walking back to the dock man with a grimace on his face.
    "See what I half to deal with. I'm so done with this whole man in charge crap. Shall we go? By the way I never did get your name. I'm Billy, Billy Idol . Pleased to meet you."

    Tumbili slyly grinned. "Tell ya what. I'll flip the coin I have in my hand. Tails, I leave. Heads, I stay." He flipped the coin that he had previously pulled from his pants pocket into the air, waited for a moment, then snatched it again. "Hmm, heads it is," he said as he revealed the coin in the palm of his hand before he put it back into his pants pocket. "Guess I'm staying. Lucky you."

    Carl held his hand up at head's height to get everyone's attention. "Um, excuse me, but I'm trying to find a club where they're looking for Mobile Suit pilots. Can anyone tell me where that is?"

    "Sounds reasonable. I think we'll be taking the job, right Adam? "

    "Yeah, sounds pretty good to me. "
