Strictly (Duke) Springer - Day 064 – March 4th

At the spaceport, there are 11 possible results. One of which is no more rolls, which is an annoying thing. However, since both ships are paid for and I am cheating the system for crew pay, this one is now meaningless except for the fact that it can burn time.

I need stasis units (a roll of 2), a boat (5), hypercharges (7), PS bots (9), a gunner (10), a pair of pilots (11). So, 6 of 11 rolls should be fruitful but sometimes the dice lie.

I get 11, 9, 8, and 3 which is no more rolls. The 9 is useful, as it the 11. We hire two pilot/navigators, Michael and Jonathon. I didn’t think about this one since the crew is getting a split of the profits, what do I pay these guys? I’ll give them first weeks pay plus the sign on bonus. That is 35 secs. each.

We pick up a couple PS bots for David, Lucy, Michael and Jonathon. The bots are hardcoded to the user, so I can’t purchase them in advance. They cost 120 each. If I had rolled a 9 first, I wouldn’t have been able to get PS bots for Michael and Jonathon, so that worked out well.
