Strictly (Duke) Springer - Day 005 (RRR)

Having reviewed the game Star Smuggler, I wanted relive my past and play it. If you aren't familiar with the game, you can read the review here or download the whole game there.

This series will be a day-by-day play through of the classic game Star Smuggler from the point of view of the fictional hero, "Duke".

Dear Diary,

Day five is less exciting than day four. We engage in RRR, I watched the engineer repair the ship's boat. He did it, he doesn't even need a die roll. Ugh.

Engineers are interesting, sometimes they can fight, they can always do repairs under direction and oddly can drive a skimmer. Every item repaired burns one Repair Unit (RU) per point of damage, no matter how big or small it is. 

At the end of the 10 hour day, I'm thinking of money. Here is today's stats:

1 Antelope starship,
1 Hopper with 15 units of fuel,
1 Hopper, no fuel,
1 Stasis pod 2 CU,
25 Repair units (one used to repair the boat).
1 Skimmer,
1 Damaged Skimmer,
1 Damaged U-bot.
and the ship is fully fueled with 6 hypercharges.

Emily, weekly pay 15 secs. She has a sidearm and 35 secs.
Ratchet, weekly pay 15 secs. He has 30 secs.
Doc, weekly pay 10. He has the 10 secs that I paid him on day one.

Designated Heir: Emily.

I still owe 120,000 secs. in principal on the ship. I still have 350 secs in my pocket, but the gear will sell will help, a lot.
