The Novice Assassin: Epilogue

Nick wanted to be sure that he had effectively lost Persing and his transhuman bodyguards, so he made several random jumps, nearly tripling his travel time. Nick only stopped to relax after nearly running into the jet stream of a white dwarf star. While the ship ran on autopilot, Nick retreated further into the ship to tend to his wounds. He spent roughly an hour swearing and wincing as he carefully...

The Novice Assassin: Part 6

Though not as elegant as the Imperial Cutter, the Anaconda’s interior was still significantly more comfortable than the few cramped compartments that comprised his Eagle. Nick wanted desperately to take a tour of the ship, but knew he was short on time. After taking a moment to enjoy the ship’s built-in elevator, he beelined for the pilot’s seat. Nick strapped himself in, then pulled a chip out of...

The Novice Assassin: Part 5

After wrapping up their talk, Persing had one of his guards, the same one who piloted one of the Anacondas, escort Nick back to his ship. As the pair walked, Nick finalized the details of his plan. During their meeting, Nick was able to glean something important from Persing. The Anaconda’s that escorted him here were gifts from Whistmire. If he could simply get access to one of the ship’s navigational...

The Novice Assassin: Part 4

To Nick’s surprise, the interior of the Cutter was even more beautiful than the exterior. Nearly everything on the ship had a holographic interface, and bright blue lights followed them throughout the ship's extensive, and surprisingly roomy halls. We entered cavernous and luxurious dining room, with fine wooden chairs magnetically attached to the floor. An array of luxurious foods that Nick didn’t...

The Novice Assassin: Part 3

“Core Dynamics, Golf, Romeo, Echo, this is an independent facility. Please be aware of speed restrictions as you approach the starport.” Nick had finally reached the station where he was meant to meet Persing. Now all he had to do was wait for the man to contact him. Bringing his ship’s throttle to zero, all he had to do now was prepare for the meeting itself. He cleared his throat and began to speak...

The Novice Assassin: Part 2

“Four… Three… Two… One… Engage,” the ship’s AI repeated before jumping into witch-space once again. Nick swore he was going to go mad if he didn’t find the menu that turned off the AI’s voice soon. Thankfully he had only a few more jumps before he reached NLTT 20330. Halfway through the journey Nick came to the conclusion that he wouldn’t be able to create a plan without knowing what he was getting...

The Novice Assassin: Part 1

As Cartlidge and Ten left the station in the bulky Type 9, their newest companion, the assassin named Nick, sat comfortably in the pilot’s chair of his Eagle. He was watching the other ships come and go, thinking about the possibilities he would have with an extra five million credits to work with, once he completed the task the bounty hunter had left him with. All he had to do was get in contact with...

The value of a Name: Epilogue

After an exhausting series of events, we had finally returned home. As Nick readied the ship for docking I took the opportunity to explain what we had learned while Ten listened quietly. Nick thought about the information for a moment as he maneuvered the Eagle onto its designated landing pad. “Yeah, I’ve never heard of this ‘Whistmire’ guy either, but you know what’s weird? Persing’s the guy who hired...

The Value of a Name: Part 8

I signed as I rested my head against the cold metal paneling of Nick’s Eagle. To say that it had been a rough day would have been an understatement. In our search for information, we found ourselves visiting a station known as Citi Gateway, a popular location for commanders to visit. While Nick went to try and find things out the usual way, Ten and I went to the station’s main bar to talk to some other...

Commander's Log: 1 November, 3302: A Merchant and His Dagger

After about a week of ferrying rich snobs from place to place for their amusement, I am starting to grow unsure about the value of owning an Orca. Flying the Caravan around has made me plenty of money, don't get me wrong, but so far my experience has been that few people actually require the use of luxury cabins, the only real thing that makes the Orca worth flying. To make matters worse the ship is...
