If Wyatt were in a playful mood...

He'd reply, "Are you talking to me? Do I know you?"

Ody? Altaira?

Not that I am one to say anything about slow posting but if y'all post by Friday I can advance the story.

AWOL

Altaira seems to have gone and dropped herself off the face of the earth for the time being. I've reached out to her for my games through PMs on two sites. Time to send an email, I think.

Altaira

I am going to post ahead without Altaira for the moment to keep the game moving. I hope that we haven't lost her. If it is the worst case scenario though, Stephanie was an NPC prior.

Awesome!

Before I post, I've a question.

As we started this leg of the adventure, you posted:
The ship is at ¼ tank of fuel (15 tons or 200 hours). The ship is parked in a field right now so there is nowhere to refuel unless you move the ship to a spaceport and pay the hefty docking fees and maintenance fees and the Patience's tax. The ship is about one month behind its usual maintenance right now (1030 credits if you wish to invest). Your cash reserves are down to 2500 credits and you were paid 1000 credits up front for hauling the bees. So, you are looking at 3500 in hand with 1030 needed for maintenance and if you fill up on this planet, 800 for fuel, 400 for port fees and supplies refills).

The five drums that are being offered along with the 500c would take our fuel reserves up to 1/3, basically 300 hours. With those five drums, what does that reduce the fuel expense to (800c down to...)? If my math is correct, and not figuring in the offer for transporting the pregos girl, that would mean that with a total investment of 1,030c (maintenance & repairs) + 400c (port fees) + ? (fuel). Leaving Roc's expenses at a total of...?

Total income from the bees delivery and what money we had in escrow is, as you've stated, 3,500c. I'm assuming that's before splitting the credits amongst the crew shares. With the 500c offered, that means that we have 4,000c if it is paid in advance. 4,000c that is divided up 10 ways with each participating crew member taking one share, and Wyatt taking the remainder (which he generally puts towards ship improvements and Trish). That means that there's 400c per share. We have Sam, Asher, Wolf, and Stephanie on the participating crew list, so 1,200c to the crew leaving 2,800c to cover the maintenance & repairs, port fees, and supplies, correct?

QUICK FINANCIALS

2,500c (cash reserves)
+1,000c (bee payment)
-------
3,500c
+500 (transport of Potter & Friends)
-------
4,000c
÷ 4 (participating crew)
-------
400c (crew share per person)
x 4
--------
-1,200c (deducted from the 4,000c)
--------
2,800c
- 1,030c (maintenance & repairs)
--------
1,770c
- 400 (port fees & restocking)
--------
1,370c
- unknown amount (fuel)

Knowing this will help me determine Wyatt's thoughts on the matter. Thanks, Roger!

okay lets look at this

You are not paying anything while sitting in a field. You would have to move to a spaceport to refuel, do maintenance etc. Considering it will be a higher price here than any other planet, you may not want to do so. Besides, in a port, Patience can put a land lock on you and search your ship.

Fuel on Whitefall is controlled by Patience. While it is usually 5 credits a ton, here it is 15.

Roc has a 60 ton tank. You have 15 tons in the tank right now. so to fill up would cost you 675. Sorry, I don't know where I got 800 from, math is hard.

Potter has offered you 500 cr plus 5 of his drums, so another 10 tons. Note that this is his opening offer, he may be willing to haggle. Normally for three day journey it is 50 c a person and 175 c for the cargo (on the low end). So you are looking at 375 would be the lowest and he is starting at 500 plus 150 c worth of fuel (Planet pricing).

Now remember that Roci's new engines are fuel efficient so you get an extra 25% out of the fuel, so 25 tons of fuel is really 312.5 hours of flight. So even with hard burn, you could get to Pegasus and beyond to fuel up at a decent rate.

The part about shares and how much money you have now seems correct to me.

Does this help? I hope so.

Woohoo!!!

Hooray for posts!

I'll see if I can't get a post for Sam going before too long... Though I may wait to see what Brom comes up with, first.
