BTW, "in escrow" does NOT mean the funds are unavailable for investing in speculative cargoes. Until our characters know what's happened to our two shipmates (or have waited so long we've given up), the shares should earn dividends and the funds should be used to increase the value of the company --- we'll need it in order to pay the ship's mortgage payments, overhaul fees, etc.

Not that I thought you all didn't know all this... but just wanted to be sure you knew I was thinking this way too.

Say, you don't suppose it's of Aslan manufacture...?

Not quite ready to take on a second character. Once I get a little more comfortable I may consider it.

Depending on the weather in metro Atlanta, John and/or myself may be without power & internet if the ice turns out to be as bad as the forecasters predict. After a day or so, I'll probably check in with my phone and post. Kind of a pain, but workable.

Sorry that I haven't been online more. New job has been exhausting. Then this past weekend even more exhausting (but fun). Ran my first Traveller adventure in 27 years on Saturday. Alan brought over an HP-15c for my engineering collection. (Thanks!!) Got a call from my piano technician asking if I was serious about wanting to play a gig at a restaurant or piano bar. Attended my local chapter meeting of the American Theatre Organ Society on Sunday; performance by Larry-Douglas Embury, house organist at The Fabulous Fox Theatre here in Atlanta. (Hosted by a couple in Mableton.) After the main meeting, played their piano (Yamaha baby grand), and their organ (an Allen R311, sort of like this one here: http://www.allenorgan.com/www/products/t321q/t321q.html ). Got feedback re the gig: "you should go for it, dude."

Then, a new Scrum "sprint" on Monday (and accepting the gig for Friday!), and preps for an ice storm today!

Whew...

Brokered:
50 tons Basic Electronics @ 10000 credits/ton (500,000 Cr)
High durability, long life transformers for residential power grid usage.

30 tons Basic Machine Parts @ 9000 credits/ton (270,000 Cr)
Spider gear sets and differentials for power take-off system used with
hydro-turbines.

30 tons Basic Manufactured Goods @7000 credits/ton (210,000 Cr)
High tech polymer sheeting, bundled in rolls in boxes.

20 tons Basic Raw Materials @ 5200 credits/ton (104,000 Cr)
Wendle’s Fern has the unusual property of changing color
when a mild electrical current is passed through it. Fern
fibres have been adapted for a range of uses, particularly
wall hangings and curtains. A tiny fluctuating current passed
through the hanging causes the fern fibres to change
color, creating a rainbow-like effect. Fern fibres have also
been introduced into some ceramics, including high class
crockery.

This cargo contains packages of fern fibres for processing
into wall-hangings by a subsidiary of the Pleasurestar
corporation.

40 tons Basic Consumables @ 2100 credits/ton (84,000 Cr)
Fresh Tolinquin beans, ground to a fine powder or paste, are
used as a spice for exotic dishes. The fresh beans can also
be fermented to create a very expensive wine. However,
in either case they lose their taste within hours of being
plucked from the plant. This shipment therefore comprises
several hydroponics tanks containing live Tolinquin plants.

20 tons Basic Ore @ 1100 credits/ton (22,000 Cr)
Some years ago, the quality control analysis of an iron ore
shipment from the current world indicated an anomalous
crystalline structure within. Investigation of the shipment
determined that it came from a new ore seam, previously
untapped by the mining corporation. The molecular
composition of the crystalline iron has now been found
to be of particular use for producing a number of organic
compounds. This shipment is intended for a Bioplas LIC
plant producing synthetic blood of various types.

30 tons Crystals and Gems @ 17000 credits/ton (510,000 Cr)
Lyten Technical produce the three-dimensional processor
circuits for a wide variety of high tech computers. This
shipment is of raw crystals, en route for a Lyten plant. At
the plant the crystals will be purified and then etched using
holographic laser techniques to create the processing
circuits.

10 tons Petrochemicals @ 8000 credits/ton (80,000 Cr)
Detailed analysis of a local gas giant has discovered regular
nanometer size carbon structures within the raw gases.
This shipment is being sent for investigation to the
laboratories on a neighboring world, to determine whether
the nano-pipes and other carbon-based formations are
created by natural processes within the gas giant, or are the
by-products of some new life form.

3 tons Pharmaceuticals @ 80000 credits/ton (240,000 Cr)
Yttar Leaves can bring one to a state of deep meditation,
as well as curing Jump sickness, indigestion and a
hundred other ailments.

2 tons Precious Metals @ 35000 credits/ton (70,000 Cr)
Silver, refined, in 1kg ingots.

6 tons Radioactives @ 1050000 credits/ton (6,300,000 Cr)
A minor accident at a nuclear waste reprocessing plant has
created an alloy with unusual electrical properties. This
shipment contains a series of small samples of this waste,
for transport to an independent laboratory for analysis.

10 tons Spices @ 5100 credits/ton (51,000 Cr)
Ancient salt mined and refined from the extinct oceans of Raweh.

20 tons Textiles @ 2100 credits/ton (42,000 Cr)
Shimmercloth. Textiles produced in colorful patterns.
Shimmercloth colors are active rather than passive or reflective;
some patterns change in long cycles.

20 tons Uncommon Raw Materials @ 17000 credits/ton (340,000 Cr)
Platinum is used by Physkem as a catalyst in the synthesis
of various hydrocarbon chemical structures. This shipment
of platinum ore is being sent for refining and would normally
be carried by McClellan Factors Shipping. However, the
McClellan Factors ship in port is pursuing a strike action in
an attempt to get a salary raise. McClellan is thus
subcontracting this shipment at 150% of the normal price to
ensure that they do not lose the contract with Physkem.

5 tons Adv. Vehicles @ 216000 credits/ton (1,080,000 Cr)
A robotic mining rig head, designed for asteroid mining.

30 tons Basic Electronics @ 6500 credits/ton (195,000 Cr)
Gas Discharge Tubes - GDTs / Gas Plasma Arrestors 6MM 600V 3POLE SMT GDT

20 tons Spices @ 7500 credits/ton (150,000 Cr)
Cardamom, packaged in small bottles, packed in cases, crated.

20 tons Polymers @ 8000 credits/ton (160,000 Cr)
Hyron-198 is an extremely strong polymer used for heat and
impact resistance, for example as a starship hull coating.
The uncured polymer is mildly toxic if it touches exposed
flesh.


The brokerage also has contacts to loan Cr for speculative cargo to other worlds.

As set up, the Droyne is going to the mine with you and just paying freight; you can jump forward if no one objects.
