Sully...

...would likely be likely prowling the markets for maps, spyglass lenses, and things along those lines if I had to guess... Unless he chose to stay aboard the ship... or jandered off with someone else to lend a hand or whatever.

Up to our tale-spinner, really... I'm totally flexible!

Funds eh?...

Mostly common desert fare. There are some other plants and such available but they're pretty costly. They probably eat better out in the desert because of Ardis's knack for finding oases.(I finally looked up the plural for that.) She'll probably mostly be stocking up on the staples like flour and salt and whatnot. Gravy makin supplies. XD

You can find just about anything for sale somewhere in the slums, assuming you're willing to go looking for it. Well, anything that could have survived the blast. There are probably no strawberries or delicate succulents that survived long enough to be found and cultivated.

As for funds, she'd be allocated a decent amount. A little more than the average ship maybe, but by no means will they be eating like kings. Ammunition and parts needed to keep the Falcon running come out of the budget first, then food, then medical supplies. Since the Falcon took no major damage on the last run, I would say she probably has a good enough budget to feed the crew for a couple weeks without outside supplement if she is decent at meal planning, which I'm guessing she probably is.

Depending on character spending habits, it's possible they could have a decent amount of personal money saved up. I'm working on how the monetary system works. I'm thinking the slums probably works more on a barter system though they'll take City Marks if you have them.

Marks are the primary way of paying for things within the city. The are made out of silver and come in five coin pieces.

Half Mark - a half mark would buy you and a friend a drink at the bar or a loaf of bread and maybe a dubious piece of cheese like substance. Usually a slum worker will receive a half-mark for a day's work in the factories.

Full Mark - A full mark will buy you a night at the place you and your friend were drinking or a nifty broken widget you found in a scavenger's booth in the market square. Decently employed workers in the city get a Full Mark for a full day's work.

Tetra Mark - Four Full Marks. Will buy you that new dress you've been eyeing in the shop window or a shiny new set of goggle lenses

Deca Mark- Ten Full Marks. One could buy enough food for a family of four for a month on a Deca Mark. Few slum inhabitants ever save up enough money to ever actually have any of these.

Quina Mark- Fifty Full Marks. Very rarely used for anything other than large bills paid by the noble classes or payments for Citizenship Passes. A Citizenship Pass is Four Quina Marks. Few slum workers have ever even seen one in person.

Also

If Sully wanted to help Maggie with foodstuff supplies, and extra hand carrying that stuff around is always appreciated. She would, of course, help Sully scour around the slums for trinkets afterwards (and sometimes it helps to have a big Mama Bear around for those types of things. *winks*)

If not, Maggie is confident enough she can manage. ^_^

Sounds good to me, Mama...

...Sully wouldn't be opposed, at all, I'm sure! Make it so! *winks*

Also...

...just tacked a little "How Ardy met Sully" bit onto Sully's entry in the crew thread. Have a bit more to do, there, but am taking a bit of a break to go grab some food.

And...

...done!

I'm pretty sure that's the "meat and taters" of Sully's write up, anyway... Most anything else can come out in the RP as we go along, I guess (unless, of course, our loverly GM needs me to edit anything in the bio as it stands, right now).

Also... 4500!!!!

Where Keira probably is

Keira is probably restocking any ammo the Falcon and her used as well as looking at any weaponry that may have been invented since their last docking. That or looking dreamily at dresses.

Elly...

Probably just sent (npc) assistents out with a list of materials and spare parts to fetch. She prefers to stay on the ship while docked, since if she was spotted... well...

Let's just say she does *not* want to be dragged back 'home' kicking and screaming She may be an adult, but her parents definitely never treated her like one.

Sully

Eol I'm sorry to say but according to today's popular literature Sully's eyes sparkling indicated that they are in fact vampires and cannot be trusted. I will not allow them on my ship.

*hums* I do like the history though. Good stuff. Waiting on info from Kamina and Reralae at the moment.

Need to know how long the doc's been on the ship or if we're picking him up on this trip into town.

Congrats on having a buttload of posts Eol.

Edit: Oh hi, you ninja'd me

LOL

Firstly - I don't care what modern lit says... Vampires do not sparkle! And, even if you believe that Twilight nonsense, isn't it actually their skin that sparkles? If Sully starts doing that, by all means, STAKE HIM and quickly! *winks*

Secondly - Thanks! I'm no Grugg, of course, but I do have a proliferation of posts, hereabouts... The way you're going, though, you're likely to surpass us all within the month!

Just a thought

I can imagine the bizarre circumstances of Engie and Ardis's meeting was really a good thing. He has such difficulty talking to girls (though by now he's gotten used to all of the ones on the ship, and never did he have trouble talking to Maggie. Not that she's not a pretty girl mind you.... she just is so much like his mum.)

Edit: If I keep at this rate of posting I'll be at 5000 shortly after my birthday in January.

I can picture it now...

A wall blows up in front of Ardis for no apparent reason, and a blackened person with a bunch of brick blows past him, he turns to look at the blown-up person, hears a voice behind him, "Oh, sorry! Did I hit you too?"

And thus a young(er) Artis met Engie. No awkwardness involved, just an explosive Engie grinning sheepishly at Ardis through a blown up wall.

Edit: Would there be any dodge charms on sale? You can never have enough dodge charms Joking

Sppparrrrkles

I wouldn't actually know, Eol, I couldn't bring myself to finish the first book. There were too many typos in the first chapter.

Awkwardness defeated with maximum explodability.
