On the week journey to Beaumonde, our party had the unpleasant task of cleaning the ship (which was considerably in need) and inventorying things they could sell with which to buy essentials and fuel. Quin, Viktor and Karl, under Jacob's good care started to heal. Jacob was understandably very distrustful of his 'kidnappers'. From his perspective, this group just killed two of his co-workers and stole his employment right out from under his feet. Eddie tried to convince him that Mercury belongs to Quin, but he was having nothing of it.
When they arrived, they landed in New Dunsmuir (the best landing that Jase has ever pulled off) and got about to organizing what they were going to do. Eddie had left all of his things on Boros in the hotel room, so in order to make some more scratch, he lined up some clients locally. Quin started to come to, and was able to convince Jacob that the ship was his by showing him the hidden compartment with the registration still intact. Victor apparently never found it, and since it was sealed and very dusty, it was proof enough for our doctor that they were on the level.
After a few well paying clients, Craig Bobak and Jennifer Chambers, Eddie started to make the ship feel more like a ship. He paid for all the plumbing repairs and the cleaning that needed done. He fueled her and started his search for Ashley Jacobs.
While everything was going well on board, Tack went out to look for loose purses. Ended up captured with a shattered nose. When she didn't come back, Jase went out to look for her. The trail led to an insurance company run by someone calling himself "Mr. Johnson". After some quick-talking, Jase got in to see Johnson. He almost got himself killed, but after some more silver tounge action, he managed to get himself and the severely broken Tack back to Mercury. Before leaving, however, Johnson invited him to play in a high stakes poker tourney. Jase told him that he'd consider it.
In need of reconstructive surgery, they took Tack to the hospital. They kept Viktor and Karl under. Jase told everyone about the card game, and they decided it was a great way to make more money. They had a meeting with Johnson and Jase, Quin, and Eddie all got seats at the game. The game is in two days. So they start preparing...
