Leon will shops for some bottles of decent rum (perhaps a case) and also some more cigars ( 100 off). A personal medi-kit would also be a good idea along with extra laser carbine charge packs. If it's ok with the captain he will now keep on permanent loan the snub gun.

OoC: Get back to Leon, Elton, Theta, and Calson too. Is their anything they want before going to a different planet?
OOC: After recent events, Elton has no desire to leave the ship for a while. :)

Still at the Bazaar Zhenya discusses ammunition with the trader. The weapon can fire five ten-round bursts in a very short time, it will eat through a 200 round box in no time. However, a problem that requires sustained fire is a problem that perhaps we should not stand and fight with. Still, five 200-round boxes seems prudent, and 2000 rounds belted, for reloads. Rifle calibre ammo? If so a tool for reloading and re-linking spent belts would be a good idea too, since loose rounds should be easy to acquire from regular firearms dealers, and a canvas bag to catch spent casings will keep the deck clear. Something to while away the dull days between actions.

Calling the station admin: "Good day. I am Zhenya, Kapitan of the Czernobog, formerly Wandering Star. Might I speak with Administrator Lin Da Chu? I believe those names will be familiar. It had been intended that we would be gone soon, but circumstances have changed now, and I shall be doing business here. A cordial relationship between us would be pleasant. I am sure there are some registrations, licences and fees to be arranged. Both of us can only benefit from working together and avoiding any friction."

1000 rounds in boxes and 2000 in loose belts? 100 round belts can also be worn, and then fed into the box on the MG. 3000 rounds or 30 100 round belts is 3,600 Cr; plus 250 Cr for pintel/tripod mount. The rounds are the same 7mm as rifle rounds, except the belt is tiny bits of bio-plastic that disintegrates into little pieces, maybe it could be collected and re-used.

Lin Da Chu's secretary puts Zhenya through to her, where she is rather pleasant about asking for a 20,000 Cr business facilitation payment, that should take care of the various fees and licenses. She also seems to know more than she lets on, leaving the conversation with that she is happy to be on your side, because that is where she usually is. Strange.

Zhenya enjoys the novelty of a friendly interaction. "We must meet for lunch some time."

That went well. Cheaper than I feared too. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship, as someone once said.

Of course, they're there for crew use. Anybody wants to use something in the Armoury/Locker, just take it. Well, make a note you've taken it so it isn't just gone, but otherwise... Waste of money if we never use 'em.

Decent Rum is 5 Cr a bottle, 12 bottles a case for 60 Cr; good cigars are around 1 Cr a piece. Laser Carbine Power Packs are 1000 Cr per; a Medical Kit: TL 7, 10 kg, 1,000 Cr; not light weight.

Lin Da agrees that they should have lunch. Next is figuring for repairs, who gets left behind and who goes? Also, is Theta or Calson interested in buying anything, or just prefer staying on the ship and playing cards with Elton.

If Theta is at a loose end the new GPMG could use a gun-shield...

Zhenya contacts Oliver and Otto's to arrange the necessary repairs, citing the Credit Reval account for payment.

So much to do. Zhenya has been too busy to fall apart, which is good, because that's exactly what would happen otherwise.

Calson thinks there might be a couple of things we'll need for recon. Using srambled comms: "Zhenya i'm looking for long range binoculars, comms and a long range surveillance drone, heading your way now, can you point me in the right direction". Taking enough of his wages in cash to cover the cost.

"I think I might know the place for those, I bought some optics and comms recently. A drone, that is a very good idea."

Zhenya and Chaco meet Calson as he approaches the Bazaar and take him to the traders with the sort of gear he 's looking for.

I'm assuming we are not talking the big predator style drone from LBB 4 for MCr2. Cheap automatic drones are about the size of a ram grenade, and come in packs of three for Cr50; larger drones that can loiter and are more than "one look"; are Cr50, truly long range (50 km) ones jump rapidly in price to around Cr2,000; and are like mini aircraft. Encrypted comms aren't cheap either, starting at Cr200 and going from there, they all have to be matched sets. TL 9-11 Binoculars are Cr500, and weigh around .75 kg.
