Thank you. Scion provides an excellent frame work, so it's easy to connect it.

Pirates Revenge? Or Pirates Story? They're both good.

As for Wingnut, I'm not sure. He wasn't quite fitting the story, and frankly after he smashed into the side of the ship, I'm not entirely sure I'd rehire a guy that does that kind of stupid thing. Would you?

Perhaps someone a bit less crazy.

Chapter 12: Pirates in arms.

I've decided to give G't a chance to prove himself a split warrior. And informed him that if he accidentally shoots me in the back, Battlewagon is programmed to self-destruct his ship. He gave me an ugly look. And when you get an ugly look from a Split, you can definitely tell.

I gave him the Chimera. He wasn't particularly happy about it, but I twisted his arm. No, literal. I bent his arm behind his back and banged his head against the wall, until he agreed to take the ship. Of course when Wingnut went down I lost all my spare weapons, so the only thing I had to mount were 4 IRE's, the three from his Buster Raider, and one from a bailed N.

He's not really happy, apparently preferring a nice safe guard dog job up with Battlewagon, but that's tough. I'm not in the mood to accept griping. His job is to keep me from getting smashed by some jerk with a space flame thrower.

“Was he really that bad?”

“No. He was an excellent pilot, and not a bad warrior, but a truly terrible gambler. Even worse than Weasel.”

“Wow.”

“Indeed.”

Well, that was the plan, but after the first ship I caught, and blew up, I sent him back to guard duty. The speed difference even if he were maxed is just too high. Since he's not for reasons obvious because of the incident with his late wingman, it's just not a proper fit. Of course, I remind him that Battlewagon is also linked to his self-destruct. If it goes up, so does he. He's not happy, but I don't really care.

A couple of hits on traders go pretty well. I get some missiles from an Argon Weapons dealer. A Freight Transporter however, nets me an Eclipse. Yet another bails, yielding his Nova, and some Meatsteak Cahoona's.

Bringing in a Caiman, I see a Xenon M show up. The Caiman, equipped with MARS and some fighter drones begins scooping up the cargo. Killing the first M, after causing the Rapier it launched at me to impact on one of the big asteroids, and narrowly avoiding taking the second up the tailpipe, I duck out and finish it with a burst of PBG. Slipping into attack position on another trader, I get lit up suddenly by what turns out to be another M. I don't waste time with the PBE's this time, and burn it out with PAC fire.

A couple traders later, after taking three Wildfires to the face, I decide to call it a day. Sending the Caiman out to swap it's jumpdrive back to the second Zephyrus, I wait for it to arrive, and count my loot. More than a hundred IRE's. A dozen PAC's, some Microchips, 32 crates of MD ammo, and assorted Missiles. Plus another hundred and a half crates of MD ammo, more missiles and some EBC ammo, though I completely lack any EBC's.

All in all, a profitable day.

Short chapter. Rather Fun filled. Next one is a lot longer.

A Pirate's Revenge then. Glad you like it.

L'l'th sounds interesting, and entertaining for a Split. I'll see what fun I can do with her.

There are pictures that go along with this, but I don't have a connection capable of uploading them at the moment, so...

Chapter 13: Brothers in Arms, Pods in the Tubes.

This was my first live boarding exercise. Having learned my lesson not to mix boarding crews, I had returned my Paranid Marines to duty aboard Battlewagon, and set my Toucan to looking for more awesome Split Jarheads to stuff face first into pods. I mean, really, that's all pods are, a long missile with five spots for marines to strap themselves on. Of course, the reason most Split consider marines crazy (Above and beyond the normally acceptable amount for a Split) is that they're shooting themselves across open space at very high speed, relying on the often unreliable Split Pilots to keep the shields down so they don't join their ancestry prematurely.

Of course, Split being what they are, there are almost never a shortage of such brave... or insane souls. I must presume that many of my candidates were offered the choice of being euthanized or joining the marine forces.

I'm not entirely sure the difference, except that becoming a Marine seems to be a slower death. Not much though.

Of course what this meant was funds. Lots of them. Which meant either lots of piracy, or jobs. I opted for the latter, given that Piracy has rapidly become a dangerous proposition. The Argon seem to be sending more military through Haktikvah's lately, so I'm going to lay low, and see what I can do for my government, lest they find something to do for, or rather to me. It's not long before I realize that cattle class taxi missions are good payers. A mission to defend a station turns out to be worth more than the 39.9k credits offered. I not only get two ships to bail but one is carrying PAC's for G't's Chimera.

Chasing down to Contorted Dominion to dock the Ares at the Military Outpost, I hear a conversation. A couple of half-bagged Split are talking about a close encounter of the very scary kind. It seems they were east of the Paranid Origin sectors, and were almost killed by some sort of big nasty destroyer, trailed by a huge cloud of fighters.

That sounds like my kind of destroyer. It's called an Akuma it seems, and it's purported to be exceptionally nasty at killing. Definitely sounds like my kind of destroyer. Apparently you can buy them, but I have a sneaking suspicion that I might have to 'acquire' one instead. Getting there however, requires some speed. The sort normally only achieved by weapon rounds. Which is why I find myself landing at the Cho's Defeat shipyard, and buying a Jaguar Raider.

Dubbing it Speed Demon, since it goes almost six hundred m/s, I jump to Thuruk's Beard and jump in, after borrowing two IRE's from the Chimera. Battlewagon heads north for jump fuel, while I head for Paranid Prime. Here's to happy thoughts.

Split say: Speed is Life. Split STUPID.

600m/s is far too fast. Blitzing between asteroids in Haktikvah's I duck through the gate, and immediately am left wondering where the hell I am, as I'm confronted with a shipyard. It's apparently called the Marauder, and it seems to offer some services to those of a piratical nature. Such as me.

Including a number of hard to find stations and several varieties of pirate ships. For those with the cash. Docking nets me a message from a fish. This is truly odd since by now they fear me terribly. It seems though that he's been kidnapped by the owner of the station. I could get to like this guy. For now though, I'm off and headed for Paranid Prime.

Danna's has a Plasma Burst Generator Forge, and Rehab center, but neither like me. Ducking north into Brennan's Triumph, I find an Argon Space Jewelry of all things and then I'm into Split Fire. From there it's a short run to Priests Pity. I'm interested in neither, so I gun the engines for the West Gate. I must admit, that despite Lord Drakes reservations and general dislike of the Paranid, which is completely justifiable, I rather like them.

Not enough to annoy Drake by hiring any mind you, but still, I find the general attitude of treating everyone the same refreshing. True, the treatment is of something scrapped off the bottom of a boot, and put there by a family pet, but at least it's equal. Priest's Rings is a big, ugly sector. I'm glad I don't have to spend too long in it.

Paranid Prime is a bit less annoying, and I stop at the Equipment Dock for a drink. Specifically something I will refer to as the Argon translation of it's Split name. Death.

Death, in the sense of a drink, varies from sector to sector. The base of the drink is space fuel with space weed blended in. From there, it's spiced with various food stuffs, in this case Rastar, and Nostrop Oil's and Stott Spices, and garnished with a Scruffin Fruit. Delicious, deadly. One sip is enough to cure whatever ails you. By burning it out.

Good stuff. Having had my one drink maximum. One glass for a Split, one for a Paranid, and one shot for Argon or Teladi. Boron can't drink it. Really Good Stuff.. I decide I'm as boosted as I'm going to get and steel myself for being shot at. A lot. Empires Edge is deceptively quiet and generally empty. Fortunately, I got the co-ordinates for the west gate to Savage Spur, so I know it's an illusion. Entering the gate, I'm ready to punch the booster and dive back through on the other side, but it seems the Yaki are generally friendly. A good sign? Time will tell.

Ocracoke's Storm is also clear. But Senator's is considered a Core Sector for the Yaki, so it's the real test. And all things seem to be okay. Definitely a bit of a surprise, so I head into the sector, looking for my real target. First thing I find though, are a pair of Ryu, apparently convoying north to the shipyard. North? What could be from the south? A little traveling to the south reveals a gate. Interesting.

But what I'm here for is supposed to be in this sector, so I swing north west and just as I'm about to change course again, I spot it. The Akuma is busily navigating around an asteroid, which hid it from earlier view. It's a long ship with 6 GJ of shielding, and frankly, I think it's beautiful. The only problem is that it does have that previously mentioned cloud of fighters hanging around. What that means is that I need a Corvette, so I can launch Firestorms. Hammerheads would do the job, but I've only got the one. So, I first need to locate a Corvette and then take it. Which means I need a TP, and some marines. I've heard about a battle back in the northeastern Split Sectors, near Family Njy, and the report of a downed Dragon. Jumping from Senator's Badlands to Mines of Fortune, I start southeast. Meanwhile Ch't reports in that the first group of marines has been properly briefed and are in the middle of their first round of training. It's kind of expensive, I'll admit,but having the marines ready to go when I get to the Dragon is going to be a lot easier than having to wait. Of course first I have to get to Family Njy, and find the dragon.

Turns out neither of those is actually that hard. Arriving in sector, the Dragon is actually sitting not that far off the gate.

Not long after, the Ares arrives, and my marines are aboard the unshielded and abandoned ship. Or rather they would be if they could get through the hull. Battlewagon's bridge finds itself cleared as I begin screaming in a fit of rage. Sitting in my command chair a few minutes later, considering just what horrible fate I should expunge upon enemies, I get a call.

Answering with a jab of a finger and a snarled acknowledgment I find myself talking to a representative of Sky Crow industries. Apparently a scout ship witnessed my boarding attempt and it's subsequent failure. He reported back to his superiors.

What they want to offer me is the chance to purchase a ship extension allowing me to claim abandoned ships without marines damaging the ships. It sounds interesting, and also illegal. I tell them I'd like to talk to a rep in person. I'm directed to the nearest Teladi EQD. First though, I head out to kill a Kha'ak interceptor prowling around Njy. In doing so I see a second Dragon, also sitting abandoned. There's a Boron Heavy Hydra hunting and I suspect that it's what's caused the bails. I'll be back for it.

Docking at the EQD, I myself sitting at the bar, waiting for the contact. I found myself sitting at a lot of bars to be totally honest with you. I still do on occasion and I admit, I don't really mind it. The contact turned out to be an absolutely ravishing Split female by the name of L'l'th. I nearly dropped my drink. Nearly. No woman worth that.

“HEY!”

“True.”

She walked up to me in the most interesting manner, and introduced herself. It was good to meet a Split female who did not spend all her time trying to kill me, or worse, marry me. Of course, then it got to price, and I did spill my drink. Four and a half million credits. For a piece of hardware.

Then she got into the technical specifics and frankly I stopped listening after a bit, trying to work out just where I was going to get that kind of money. She said she'd be willing to wait for a while while I got it. I bought her another drink and told her to wait for me. I'd be back.

“So, you'll spill your drink for credits, but not a pretty girl?”

“Split must have standards.”

Chapter 14: Need Cash Fast

My first mission is a transport to the SPP in Tkr's Dep. I don't have the energy to jump in one go, but I do have enough if I get one system closer, and I'll be landing at an SPP anyway, so it's okay. Turns out that when I jumped to Home of Opportunity, G't S'hht missed the bus, so I tell him to meet me at the SPP instead. He's not happy, since I suspect he wanted to run away with my ship. Too bad.

I've made two decisions though. One is that I need a bigger ship. While the Battlewagon has proven itself able, I need more cargo space, and more fighter capacity. A kill mission sends me to home of opportunity for nearly a hundred thousand credits. It'll be hard to accomplish, but I can manage it I think. I succeed, dropping on top of the Split Pirate as I arrive through the north gate.

Another mission wants a Boron flying a Pirate Viper killed. It seems this Boron was masquerading as a Teladi. The mission giver was also Boron. Oh well. Not only does the pirate bail, but I still get the 203k credits. Sweet. At this rate the fish will die because the water on their planet all dried up.

Perhaps selling the bomber will provide a bit more capital? In any case, someone has offered me 1.5 million credits to kill a target. But would want me to fly to Ocean of Fantasy. Uh huh. That's a freaking CORE SECTOR. And my name is Ea't s'Quid, not F'sh A'r Fri'nds.

So I tell him to sod off, and begin hunting for something else. Delivering an unused Hermes with a couple of spare microchips aboard nets me 41k. Another kill mission jumps me to Family Njy, with the destruction of a Peregrine in mind. After it's been vaporized, I jump into Fangs to finish of it's pirate escort. As I'm launching and bearing down on a Pirate Buster, I get an attack warning for Njy. I've only got two ships, so I do the sensible thing and scream at G't to get his ugly ass in space or I'm going to shoot it. He launches and keeps the Battlewagon from going up in smoke. Just in time too as I'm getting rolled around by wildfires before I catch the Buster and the missile it just launched with a PBG burst and eliminate both issues. After the fight is over, I collect a Firelance, some Tomahawks and a unit of Mass Driver ammo.

Sliding back aboard Battlewagon I dock at the nearby equipment dock and stop for a drink.

I have a cool 1.8 million credits, now all I need is another 3.

“Wait, wait. Just a minute.”

“What? Why you keep interrupting if want to hear story?”

“Because you're not making sense. Or being an idiot.”

“Same thing. What now?”

“Why did you take a mission for that Boron? I thought you hate Boron?”

“Do hate Boron. Love credits. Besides, talk to him over commlink, not face-to-tentacle. No urge make seafood salad.”

“Ah. So I see.”

“Hmmm... Boron use Organic technology?”

“Yes.”

“Wonder how Shark taste?”

“You're incorrigible.”

“Yes.”

Anyway, sending for the Viper, which had a jumpdrive when it bailed and was sent to local SPP for gas, I jump it in and follow it to shipyard. Current cost of new Viper in perfect condition: 5million credits, and change. Price of Viper with 71% hull, and no more? 2.7 million. Gives 4.55 million. More than enough. Jump to Home of Opportunity.

L'l'th is still at the bar when I get back she seemed surprised to see not only that I was back so fast, but that I was back at all. Presenting her with the credits, she offers to come along and show me how it works. On the way out, I get a Teladi asking to return his ship. L'l'th smiles and tells me it will be a perfect opportunity to test the software. It is, and as I kick out to go assist with a Pirate Centaur, Battlewagon auto-Pillock's over to pick up the Octopus. Before I close in though, the pilot of the Centaur bails. This is fortuitous, because I have the piece of software needed to jack it. Moving it to the Discoverer, and sending Battlewagon back with the Octopus, I note that I completely forgot about L'l'th aboard Battlewagon. I send a message that I'm sorry. Her answer isn't precisely printable, but she forgave me for rave reviews. Battlewagon jumps back to meet me in Ghinn's Escape, and we hop to Njy. It's not long before I'm now in command of 3 corvettes. Two Dragons and the Pirate Centaur. That said, only one of the three is really combat worthy, and even so it's kind of banged up at 80% hull. Of course, it'll be rocking 8 ISR's and two Firestorms.

I decide two things. One is the name of the ship. Squid Slayer. Second is that it's now mine. I love Fangs, and while I'll be taking two of the PBG's with me, it's time to move up to something more dangerous. And the Dragon fits. I make a snap decision as well. I offer L'l'th a job. Commanding the second Dragon. She accepts with a truly evil smile. I wonder for a long moment if I've made a mistake. The next smile she gives though, when she looks at her new Dragon, is one of beauty and I know instantly the answer is no. I've made a connection.

I love the cockpit view of a Dragon. It's such a hideously wonderful looking ship. And such a horribly violent warship for anyone daring to challenge it's Captain. My next command however, is already decided. Akuma. That's what I intend to fly. So my first task is two fold. First is to earn 1.8 million credits for a turbo booster, and second, is to keep training my marines. Heading east to Njy's Deception with this in mind, I'm looking for combat missions. There's nothing in Njy's Deception, except a map for a few nearby sectors, so I continue through to Family Ryk. There's a little more, most of it trading missions, and not anything I'm interested in while flying a Dragon. A Rastar Refinery holds a little more promise though. It turns out to be a particularly ugly station defense mission and before it's over, I have to call in Battlewagon and Fangs and Speed Demon both out to engage and destroy the last Harrier Raider. Fangs finally tags it with a Wasp and that slows it down enough for Speed Demon to finish off with a burst of PAC fire. Sheesh.

Long fight, good fun though.

It's about time to stop for a while though. I dock at the recently saved Refinery and get greeted with great thanks by the workers and owner. He even offers me a free drink. Naturally, I accept. Heading further east, I defend a Solar Power Plant, and then pick up a couple of Silicon Wafers for a mere 476 credits. Then I sell them to a computer plant in Family Zyarth for 830. Not a bad profit at all.

Now with most of the elements of my capture wing in position, I need only two things. One is the cash to repair my Ares. Speaking of which, calling in a Mercury SF XL, full of energy, I order it to drop a load of energy at the Computer plant. This area is kind of energy starved. I think I'll hire a pilot to run energy around this area. It's littered with power hungry factories.

Sadly, no one will work for me, because I'm not properly registered as a trader. Fine, I guess I'll run one manually. I've heard about them, but never tried it myself.

Anyway, I've heard of a secret Boron shipyard, in a sector called 'Depths of Silence'. Obviously the silence isn't that deep. So I set course for Zyarth's Dominion, only to be killed by a P coming through the gate towards me.

[---]

Ugh. Drink from Computer Plant finally got to me. Of course, the inspiration of the Shipyard in Depths of Silence inspires me to try again. I've heard of Depths of Silence, though I'm not exactly sure where that's at though.

Heading again to Zyarth's, I get there a bit earlier and the P is just passing the shipyard. Fortunately a salvo of thunderbolts takes care of it without any problem at all. Meanwhile, I've sent Battlewagon south to Cardinal's Domain and the shipyard. Midway through a mission to defend the shipyard though, I get a message from the commander of Battlewagon, an ugly split who knows better than to send video messages. This one though is a welcome sight. It's an abandoned Paranid Hercules.

Not quite the way I'd have liked my TL, but this one will work, indeed it will. Meantime, I run for the south gate, and launch missiles ahead of me to take out some of the fighters and try vainly to nail the P in charge of the attack. What happens though, is that they get shot down, and then the P and two M's that survived head off to hit the local supply Elephant. While I'm half-rooting for them to take the Elephant, since what's better than one bailed TL but two, what happens is that the Elephant takes out the P with it's IBL's and then proceeds to maul one of the M's before I can arrive. I do manage to take out the other L, but I'm annoyed.

Jumping south to Cardinals, I wait for Battlewagon near the Hercules. The capture goes as well as I hoped, and it even has both a jump drive, and some weapons, three Ion Shard Railguns, and a Concussion Impulse Generator. Plus a 200MJ shield. The downside of course is that it's a MASSIVE capital class hull, but having seen what that Elephant did to the P, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Swapping to Speed Demon, I take off west toward Barren Shores and beyond. The Boron don't hate me after killing a Boron for a Boron. Split say Boron weird. But it grants access to the border systems, and at 596 m/s there's nothing they have that can touch me. Particularly not when I get into the core sectors which is where it gets FUN.

Penetrating enemy defenses is fun. Particularly going nearly six hundred meters per second. Interestingly, I get no 'leave or die' when I enter Reservoir of Tranquility, which is considered a Core sector. Further west then. I suspect leaving I'll head north into Family Rhy. For some reason, even the Argon were friendly at this point, though I figured they would probably change their minds soon. So I decided to take advantage of it while it lasted and see if I could get a ship into position to buy a few jump drives. Volunteers?

Ah yes, a Pelican at the Split Shipyard in Zyarth's Dominion. Just needs a jump drive of it's own. Ah. I'll borrow the one off the Caiman, stick it onto a Discoverer and then slot it into the Pelican. Then I can jump the Pelican close, and move the Discoverer and my valuable jumpdrive somewhere safe. But for later is that. For now, I find that indeed, there is a sector called Depths of Silence and it does indeed have a shipyard. Turning and running back for Family Rhy is easy, but I don't feel safe there. Rhonkar and Rhy have a long history and clan Goto was often instrumental in attacks against Rhy. If they find out I'm around, I will be a stain on history.

“Obviously they didn't.”

“Split clever. Fool stupid ones.”

“How?”

“Split pretend to be Goner.”

“How does that work if you're not flying a Ranger?”

“Every time they ask for identification, I start playing preaching over comm link.”

“Cruel.”

“And unusual. Many benefits.”

Ministry of Finance, safety. Docking at shipyard, I call for ride. Hercules enters from south gate, narrowly avoids Teladi Condor, and sits not far from station. It's a lovely shiny ship and I enjoy looking at it for a while. With my moment of 'ooh, shiny' over, I get back to work. There are ships to steal, and fish to annoy.
