Re: TPD Station Brilliance
As her face was hidden behind a veil it was hard to tell, but Nadia seemed to smile at Deelin as she sat down on the offered chair, elegantly crossing her legs under her robe. "Please, no need to be so formal. This won't be an official TPD mission." She motioned for them to sit. Once everybody took a seat, she took a few taps on her data pad. "Time's running short, so I'll give it to you quick and dirty." Her eyes glanced over to the Klarr, and she cleared her throat. Just how much on them was in her files? "You've heard by now that the Nnyarthall are making another push, and the Directorate's troops are spread thin. You and a bunch of other freelancers will retake and staff an abandoned TPD space station called The Dividing Line on the edge of former Ashotur territory. It will be our base of operations for quite some time, so you're signing up for the long run." Her head turned towards Talen. "ARTEMIS already agreed to lend you to us. During the mission, you will be put under my command and will be compensated equally to all others. Large sum up front, regular payments each full month you stay on the mission, potential bonuses for contracts." Addressing everybody once more, she added, "Opposition will include the Nnyarthall, space pirates and AFOs. I won't blame you if you have no idea what AFOs are, I didn't know it myself before today. They are large, spacefaring organisms that eat ships, and they can't be reasoned with." She looks around for a moment before remembering something. "Your teammates include two engineers, medical and scientific personnel, mercenaries and something called an Ingrali. If you have any questions, ask them NOW, we'll be leaving soon." Leaning back and catching her breath for a moment, she looked at the four of them, waiting for them to say something.
