    It'll take me a bit to post, might have something by first break. But it might take longer, either this morning or before work tomorrow.

    I'm not supposed to be on my phone at work, other than to change music, maybe.

    On living expenses, I didn't even think of negotiating for that. May be something we look into retconning.

    That's why I mentioned it here. Usually it's something you automatically pay for at the start of that month, cuz then the living style has been dealt with and those expenses are off the board for further issues.

    Lemme know what you think you'd like to roll, or if you try and find some sort of sponsor a la carrying their advertisement on the job.

    Ramad's used to living with very little, so he doesn't need anything fancy. Just keep him well fed and he'll be happy enough. So you can save there.

    Unless Salaame wants to try making him presentable. That might need new clothes and like, a lot of soap. A lot.


    In-character, Ramad's been looking over the ship. Anything he should know?

    It wouldn't be hard to talk Damis into some food money.

    Assuming the 1000bir cost of living for the month, how much would getting drawback-related (booze) supplies run?

    I think I have a plan.

    What are the costs for each step on living expenses?

    Is that per person?

    What skill would I roll negotiating for a contractor to pay for a months expenses?

    Manipulation seems right, but there might be an argument to be made for another. Maybe.

    All are of Standard-tech level living (aka. how you would live on a space ship or on coriolis, without going for an Advanced Hightech area of living, cuz that's MORE expensive)
    500 for Spartan Living (aka. bare necessities), 1000 for Normal Living (which is the average of food, water, living space payment, dining-out on occassion, clothing purchases, etc.), Luxurious Living is 2500 (and is what you get from normal living, just highclass version of it, along with booze, better living space, etc. etc.)

    And this is PER PERSON.

    That depeonds on what you intent on offering for contractor to finance the expenses. Manipulation is an ideal use, but choice of what is offered can affect if you wish to offer something off greater worth than 'hey we can give ya free publicity by plastering your productname on the hull of our spaceship.'

    Um, depends on if it's part of a meal. if not, then you need to pay for it additionally. Same with drugs and cigarettes, etc. etc. Shopping for additional clothing (beyond replacement of wornout stuff, that's part of living expenses, but expanding on clothes requires actual purchases).

    Everyone should have Atleast 500 to put down each month. Preferably double, we'll look for other ways to pay, when possible.

    However I don't like the idea of selling our story. Giving someone else creative direction, when we should just go Gonzo if we need to relay our story.

    Any time we find another way to pay, that money will not go back into pockets. It will be saved for a rainy day.

    That's what I'm thinking now.

    Proper hygiene, and cleanliness, however, is very important. Outside of presentability, a healthy and clean crew helps secure the further health of the rest of the crew.

    Hopefully this makes sense.

    THat's be useful to make use of the Coriolis station culture and get ideas on WHAT could be offered, and where it'd be best to offer it. It's more about recalling if there's some sort of known info that would be useful. as in character-known thing, so even if you as the player don't know it, this is what the roll is for.

    Sorry, working 7 days a week with overtime on most. Just work, sleep, work, sleep, kinda hard to find time to make a good post.

    My first thought was R&D, but that might not work.

    Maybe something information related. Not really sure.

    I'm not a great ideas person, when it comes to this.

    Could it be something like selling detailed sensor scans of the whole ship?
    Or, possibly, a "how to" treatise on new salvage techniques?
    Or, naval architecture drawings based on our scans of the ancient ship?

    You can go with anything like NPC-dude goes along and gets to record the event as part of a news publication.
    You can choose to sign a deal about bringing a Potential Hightech weapon back and worming it past your employer and sell it off that way.
    You can also chose something like bringing back a body from the ship, cryo-freeze it and hand it over to some genetics and/or historical-firm.

    Well, you've go the choice of selling those to Yusef instead already, but yeah, it can be done. you're not required to bring that info back to Yusef specifically, but he HAS offered to pay for anything of potential value.
    Ehh, they'd not be patented for use by a specific shipyard. and the ship has been reported to NOT be in a good condition so a full scan of how it looked in it's prime state is not possible.

    Depends on how much he usually drinks on a month, bottlewise. i guess It'd be around the price of what Tabak or Arrash would cost. aka. 25 birr for a regular, bogstandard type of Kohól.

    That'd be a smart idea. a shared expense to ensure you can pay for it all... I guess if you drink a bottle a day or use a full dosage-worth of Opor or whatnot, it'd run up to around 50-100 Birr per day. add that up to a whole segment's worth and you multiply that by 37. meaning it'd be at most 3700 Birr per Segment. Less if there's not being used a full bottle/opor dosage per day.

    I think I'm actually kind of getting used to this job though, and the schedule surrounding it. So hopefully I can pick up on posting.

    So, my vote is getting a hold of the Samaritans, grabbing a body from the ship and selling it to them for research. They might be able to find something interesting out, based on the age of the ship, and whatever warp ****ery is going on here.

    Also someone else could pull a contact too, if they're up for it. The more jobs/money we can pull from one location the better.

    That is, if Hemnon is OK with it. I'm the leader, but not the "leader".

    Hopefully that all makes sense, I usually type a bit better than this, but tired minds don't make for pulitzer prizes.

    I don't mind. This is a system based around utilizing your advantages whereever you can. Explaining to me and convincing me to let you use a specific attribute with a skill it's not commonly associated with can also be done. Just needs to actually be formatively functional and I as the GM needs to approve of it for that situational use.

    That may turn out interesting IC, but I have no objections.
    Damis himself would want to keep the first trial mission as simple as possible though so he won't be introducing anything on his own.

    Saturn, no one's posted they wish to find IC-contacts as well, so just go ahead and post ICly about your choice of offer that you can offer the group.
    Remember no matter what, the sponsor WILL get their money's worth. if there's no bodies to bring back, then there's a backup thing like paying back the amount sponsored +10% on top... or some other agreed plan-B object to return to them.

    Do I need to make any more rolls?

    Well, I hope we have a Plan B, lol.

    I'll post when I can. Sunday if not before. Since I have that day off.

    Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
    Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed.
    Shall dry and die in,
    Lost Carcosa.
