:: Veega Creel, Human Pirate Captain ::
:: Cantina, Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

Creel found a little amusement in the bottle hitting the Jawa. It was a good throw.

“Aye, last round.”

She watched the Zeltron scramble off then snapped her attention back to Flynn as he described the state of her ship. The scowl returned. She snatched at an empty glass and the bottle of something he said was called ‘Chocolate Wasted’, putting it back down hard on the table as she worked through things in her head. As she poured herself a glass she called out to her engineer as he walked away “I need that bird in the air in an hour and a half Flynn! Get it done!”

She took a swig of the alcohol. Flynn’s description was about right, but he missed noting the fiery kick it gave. She kept drinking and turned her gaze to her first mate. “We need her flying Kamac, get back and help him. I’d rather beat Haasa to the rendezvous.”

She didn’t much enjoy ordering the closest being she had to a true friend away from a drink but she was impatient to get the mission started, and the Admiral was one being that she never messed with. The man had a temper far beyond her own and had been known to do horrific things to those who crossed him. He was one of the few beings in this galaxy she feared. He was also an excellent tactician and a strong leader, with an impressive network of spies and contacts, and had managed to pull several gangs of pirates together to form the increasingly formidable Vullen Coalition. Their contacts, strength in numbers and his strategic brilliance gave them the ability to successfully hit large targets that any single gang would have failed to do, and the pirates he commanded reaped the benefits. Creel had just been a gun hand on one of the ships that had joined him years before hand and under him had been promoted to Captain of her own ship. She hated being ordered out on a mission like this when they had just made port but she owed him, and the reward for this mission if they pulled it off correctly would well and truly be worth it.

Adgil asked her a question and she finished off the last of her drink in one long gulp, the alcohol burning her throat as it went down. She set the glass down and poured another half glass then looked at him steadily.

“I’ll explain back on ship. Don’t trust to say no more here.”

The pirates here were all under Vullen’s command but it didn’t stop them from trying to steal jobs from rival ships, or kill each other for the chance at more creds. Better to save the details for when they were in a location with fewer ears.

Kai finished checking his equipment, happy that everything was fully functional. He then drained his drink, stretched and chucked a few credits to the barman.

"I'm heading back to the ship" he called over his shoulder as he walked out the bar.

He had 90 minutes to get the ship spaceworthy.  It always amazed him how readily "a few hours" can turn into "an hour and a half,"  not that he really needed that long anyways.  95% of the work was already done, he'd gotten it pretty well finished before that Zeltron with the legs that went on forever caught his eye.  He sighed and shook his head with a slight smirk then pulled a cigar out of his pocket and lit it before he crawled through the access hatch to the portside intercooler.

:: Kamac Setmah, Rattataki Pirate First Mate ::
:: Cantina, Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

~Kamac stood beside Veega, saying nothing as she spoke to the crew.  He didn't question her, and he knew there would be a better explanation later.  He watched the crew react, each in their own way.  Some reactions were expected, some were amusing, especially the bottle that managed to find such a small target so accurately.  He smirked at the cry of dismay from the bottle hitting its target outside.  When Flynn brought up the parts that had been disassembled to be repaired he closed his eyes and groaned.  It meant that he was probably going to have to help too.  They had both been working on the ship, though in different parts.  Kamac had just barely managed to finish his before crashing out late in the night and then sleeping in quite late.  Apparently Flynn hadn't finished what he was working on and hadn't bothered to get to it today, or had and still wasn't finished.  He hoped that since they had a "few" hours and Flynn said he only needed a couple that he wouldn't have to leave his drinking just yet.  Sadly that thought only lasted about as long as it took the man to get out the door.  Veega turned to look him in the eyes and voice her request.  He sighed a little and nodded in response.~

"Aye, we'll get her back in shipshape condition."

~He laid a hand on her shoulder before turning away from the table, and snagging his glass off it as he did so.  The stout glass was still half full of the premium and potent spirits.  Unfortunately he'd have to put it all down faster than he'd like for a drink of that quality.  Kamac much preferred to enjoy something quality in a slow manner rather than drink some rotgut quickly to get wasted.  Walking towards the bar he put the glass to his lips and tilted it back, downing the fiery yet smooth liquid in a few swallows.  Upon reaching the bar he laid the glass down and motioned for the bartender to put a swallow more in the glass.  He downed that liquid as well and then paid his tab.  Walking past the dancing girls he motioned the one he'd been whispering too earlier to lean closer.  He let her know he'd be leaving and that that he'd catch her again after their return.  She gave him a little disappointed look and kissed the side of his smooth head in understanding and to try and cheer him up.  It made him smile a little and he passed her another credit chip before heading out the door to catch up to Flynn.~

:: Tauto Teech, Human, Ships Gunner ::
:: Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

After his initial anger Tauto calmed down fairly quickly. He ordered a long bottle of utoz and sat thinking while the crew talked and finished their drinks. As he thought he traced pictures on the table using his finger dipped in spilled alcohol. A gunsight, a bulk freighter, a grain harvesting droid, a Visk............

He abruptly scrubbed the pictures out, finished his drink and got up.

“I’ll see you back there” he said to the remaining crew and walked out.

Outside the Florrum twilight had set in, small leathery flying mammals snatched insects that buzzed around the illuminated cantina sign. It was a reasonable walk back to the ship but Tauto was not particularly bothered, it would be an unwise being that attempted to waylay him.

As he walked through the encroaching gloom he thought about the ships guns. They were in pretty good order, he would have to check the cryosystem and galven coils on the turbolaser, as usual, while they were still on the ground, but aside from that there was little to do.

More complicated was what he was going to do about the captain, he had been with the Venomstrike II for a while now and the time was approaching to find a new ship. It was not that he didn’t like the crew or the captain, he had served with few better and many much, much worse.
 The problem was that by itself the ship was too small to survive. They had to be part of Vullens’ coalition and suspected that the rapidly growing coalition would soon attract the attention of the imperials and in doing so would become a victim of its own success. He had seen it all happen before, Tauto had spent the bulk of his adult life as a pirate, he had made and lost two fortunes and before too long he would have to get away from Florrum.

He walked past the warehouses and weapons store conveniently located by the by the small hanger where their ship was docked, they had already stocked up with ammunition when they had landed so unless the captain needed something special there was little to do there.
Inside the hanger a pair of feet were hanging out of the portside hatch of the ship, just by the intercooler. From within came a series of welding flashes and muttered profanities. Tauto headed for the loading ramp.

:: Cantina, Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

~Adgil listened to the Captains short response.~

"Of course Captain, that's understandable, too many ears about..I'd better get back too, see you on board"

~Adgil stood, pocketed his detonator, straightened his shirt and coat, and tipped an imaginary hat to his remaining crewmates. He turned and headed for the door and twilight beyond. As he exited he looked up, it was as clear as he'd seen on Florrum, and the stars shone through the lighter clouds. "Here we go again..",  he whispered under his breath and smiled, then strolled off in the direction of their ships hanger.~

Kai walked into the hanger, one hand in his pocket, the other holding the Data-pad that he was reading from. He stopped for a moment as a string of profanities that would cause a Rancor to faint, echoed from a hatch in the side of the ship.

"I really must write those down" he thought as he ascended the loading ramp, "Some are actually quite creative" .

:: Veega Creel, Human Pirate Captain ::
:: Cantina, Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

Creel threw back the last of her drink, nodding to Adgil as he left.

"Aye, time to leave." She stood, her remaining crew members downing their drinks as well and following her out the door. None of them were foolish enough to stay now that she was leaving. Instead of going through the front building of the cantina she took a right at the covered walkway, cutting between buildings and through alleyways until she rejoined the street. Adgil saw her and the others pop out of an alley way ahead of him and hurried his steps to join them.

The pirates made small banter, Creel remaining silent. Her attention was split between paying attention to their surroundings and sending a text based message to her missing crew member. Having the extra person when attacking their target would be advantageous but she wasn't about to go hunting down one partying member when she had a mission to prepare for. If he didn't show, then he wouldn't receive any pay for the mission and it meant more for the rest of them.

:: Cantina, Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

“An hour and a half, plenty of time.”  Rumba thought to himself.  He finished off his steak and stood up from the table.

“Guess I’ll head back too cap’n.  Got some cookin’ to do.”

He headed out the door and into the cool evening air.  Despite the news about shore-leave being cancelled, he felt good.  Perhaps it was having a belly full of good food and drink, but his one great love, next to eating, was cooking.  Especially for people he cared for, and the captain and crew of the Venomstrike II were at the top of his list.  Yes, an hour and a half would be more than enough time to whip up some delicacies for the ship-board briefing.

:: Kamac Setmah, Rattataki Pirate First Mate ::
:: Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

~Kamac had made his way back to the ship in a fairly expedient manner, but had not caught up to Flynn.  When he arrived though and got aboard he could smell Flynn's cigar smoke.  He grabbed his tool belt from its customary place and then crawled on top of the ship via the access hatch inside the ship.  While Flynn worked from the inside, Kamac started checking the work on the outside that Flynn had done, looking around where the hits had been taken.  There were a few weld spots needed and some shorts that needed patching.  The bulk of the work had been done, but he imagined the things he saw were the result of work done while tired.  They'd both been working late on the ship.  Once he finished the few patches and any other post and finishing work on the outside, he headed back in the ship.  From there he went to the engine room, now deciding it would be a good idea to make a second check on any of his other work.  Kamac found a few things that were not done very well, or little things that had been missed, so he began to set about fixing what was needed.  Veega would want a report when she got back, and he intended for it to be a good one.  As he started the other work in the engine room, he began hearing a couple of the others coming back to the ship.~

:: Tauto Teech, Human, Ships Gunner ::
:: Hangar, Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

As Tauto walked towards the loading ramp he saw Kai arrive and head up the ramp before him. He paused to look at the ventral quad turret then walked up himself. At the top of the ramp there were some open lockers and a couple of tool kits, one of them open with various tools and coils of wire strewn about the floor.

Peering into one of the engine bays he saw Kamac bent over a piece of equipment with a grim look of concentration on his face.
He walked through to the gunners position in the cockpit behind the pilots seat on the port side. There he switched on the gun banks and ran a small charge to the guns so he could check them. The fore and aft guns were ok, the turrets ok, the ground buzzers were fine, the turbolaser was good but the ion cannons were reading slightly low. He would have to check them as well as the turbolaser.

He opened the locker next to the gunners seat got out his tools, while at the same time noting his leg armour and boarding ‘club’ were still in there.
Heading back down the ramp, Tauto got a ladder and opened the inspection plates on the side of the Taim & Bak H6 light turbolaser. As expected the galvan coils were still in good order but the barrel cryosystem was showing its age, they would probably need a completely new barrel in the next 3-6 months. ‘Still it will probably be someone else’s problem by then’ he thought. Although he would mention its condition to the captain. In the mean time he would just have to be mindful of having to allocate extra power to cool the turbolaser if they had to fire it for extended periods of time, or else slow down the fire rate further to 1.6 seconds per round.

He dragged the ladder over and checked the concussion missile tube below the cockpit before moving on to the ion cannons on the starboard side of the ship. These were usually operated by the co-pilot, but like all the guns on the ship control could be passed between the co-pilot and gunners position and to the pilot as well for that matter. He climbed up the ladder and opened the inspection hatch. The port SW-3 tested fine but the starboard one was now reading 23%. That was annoying as the starboard one could only be accessed from the hatch inside the ship at the back of the galley. As he climbed down the ladder he could hear what sounded like the rest of the crew returning.

:: Veasal Amund, Human, Slicer ::
:: Cantina, Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::

Veasal slowly got up from his seat at the table, grabbed his bottle and exited the Cantina. He stretched is arm over his head and then stretching his neck lightly tossed his bottle to a young man sitting on the ground leaning against the outside of the Cantina. Time to get to a move on.

The light was almost gone from the sky as Veasal picked his way through the streets of the town. An underdeveloped town on an underdeveloped country, its only resource  was its lack there of. With nothing of value there was nothing to govern and thus free reign for those with the will to take it. Veasal shook his head, as the outline of the hanger appeared on the horizon, had to focus on the job at hand and plus Galactic politics were a little above his pay grade.

::Rune Sygma, Human Navigator::
::Streets of Vullen Coalition Town::
Rune, who often goes by his last name, is a young man- tall and skinny, with a look that seems barely worth shaking a gafi at. However the devil is in the details. His clothes have tears with black-colored stitches (all different from the original cloth color) repairing them, behind the simple and shoddy outfit is an intelligent man who's seen a lot in his past 20 years.

Sygma Slouches on the steps of an abandoned shop, getting a slight bit of rest in. His pocket buzzes, and he pulls out a large archaic  device. He pulls up a screen, and reads a message. He decides to respond with "Like always, I'm on my way." even though the captain would likely know his loyalty anyway. He rises, pockets the datapad, and begins to walk.

~Adgil entered through the main doors just ahead of his crewmates, he couldn't wait for his bunk, in the cool of the vented ship. He smiled as he looked up, and marvelled at the Venomstrike II..no matter how many times he saw her, she always struck him as a gorgeous. Yeah she was a little beat up, carbon scoring here and there, but it showed character. Adgil chuckled to himself when he noticed one panel which was nearly entirely blackened, THAT was a close one..~
 
~Adgil walked up the loading ramp, and walked through the belly of the ship; he could smell the hint of one of Flynns cigars. He turned into the crews quarters and run his hand on the underside of his mattress. His book and tool pouch were still there. He fastened his tool pouch to his belt and then lay down, passing and juggling his favorite thermal detonator, from hand to hand..~

"Bring it on.." he softly sighed.

:: Veega Creel, Human Pirate Captain ::
:: Vullen Coalition Town, Florrum ::
 
The stroll through the cooling night air was refreshing for the armoured woman. Her pocket buzzed and she checked the reply. At least wherever the young man was, he was conscious. It wasn’t long before they passed between the surrounding warehouses and made it to their hangar. Adgil had taken off ahead of them and was assumedly already on board, with Rumba, Veasal and Danii with her. She started bellowing out orders as she walked towards the ramp, starting with those who were with her. She knew from experience her voice would carry through the ship from here and she trusted all had made their way back. If they hadn't then it would be their necks potentially on the line.
 
"Rumba, make sure we have any required provisions. Danii, check our weapons and ammo are stocked up, and make sure we have extra grenades and explosives packed in. They might come in handy. Veasal, tell me our ship's ready to fly and you haven't been fiddling with any of the computer systems. Head in and help with pre flight checks.”

She ducked as she walked up the ramp into the ship, not even pausing in her orders.

“Adgil and Kai, make sure any remaining crates are stowed and get her refueled.  Tauto, are our cannons all loaded and operational? Kamac and Flynn, I hope you've got more than curses for me, I want this old girl up and flying. Are you nerf herders or spacers, get your kriffin' arses moving!"


By the time she had finished yelling she was in the cockpit. Responses were shouted back from various parts of the ship as her crew ran to their assigned tasks. She gave a lopsided grin as she sat down in the pilot's seat and began what pre flight checks she could with her engineers still working. Her insult wasn't required since they had automatically hurried to do as ordered, but she found it amusing and those who had served with her longest would realise that. Her crew worked fairly well together and she knew they would have their tasks finished well before the deadline she gave, so long as nothing major popped up during the final repairs.
 
A thought popped to mind and she spun the seat around to yell out down the passageway “And has anyone seen that karkin’ fool Sygma come aboard yet?!”

Sygma was the youngest in her crew, and she sometimes wondered why he had chosen this profession. He was quiet and didn’t have the hard edge that most pirates carried, and was more gullible than a baby nerf.
