Strictly (Duke) Springer - Day 075 – March 15th.

Ok, we are moving the fleet to orbit and heading off to Uruskop.

There is a quirk with getting certain supplies in certain places. For most areas, a roll of 2 is Stasis Units. There is only 1/36 chance of doing that at a spaceport or other place known for Stasis Units. Prisons are the best place with a 1 in 6 chance. They use them to store prisoners, which kind of makes sense. Uruskop is the closest planet with a prison.
As we enter the system, we hear a clunk on the hull. This is e414 and is one of my favorite events. A robot craft of some sort affixes itself to the hull. If an engineer goes out there to remove it, there is a 1 in 6 chance of discovering that it is a shuttle craft of some sort. It's cool ride, you can't mount weapons but it's far more stylish than the hopper.

This ship is super dangerous. There is 1 in three chance that it will explode and kill an engineer. A 3 in 5 to kill anyone else. We roll in the middle and do not find the super cool shuttle craft. In fact, we don’t understand any of it and simply pry it off the hull. I figured Duke is acting as benefactor lately, not a boss or pirate so he risked himself with the engineer to no effect.

We land at the prison and are rush by a horde of escaped prisoners. We take off again to avoid them. The rules don’t say we can do this, but they are unarmed and want to steal our clothes. I’m not shooting them over boots. If we hadn’t been landing, I would have played it differently.
