But as they consider their options, and establish parts and materials for travel they find they are in luck as a call comes over the communication network. The comm ID masked well enough, with a foux ID from Center, that she cannot help but note the skill involved in the dead end spoofing. Instinctively answering the call Death Otter sees an attractive humanoid with light teal skin looking at her. “Ah Death Otter,
“Howdy, I’m Reynard, a friend of Fiona’s. I was hoping to be able to get hold of her, or whoever books jobs for your team. I have an opportunity for you, that pays pretty well. Assuming you are up for it.”
Taking a sip from a cup of some unseen liquid, he finishes. “So is she available, or whoever is handling your client interfacing?”
Pausing a bit as the relevant representatives are gathered and then waiting for the appropriate introductions to be made, he lays out the job.
As Reynard begins talking it takes him about five minutes to outline the basics of the job...
Leothan Pyrrvyn’s granddaughter was kidnapped this morning. Normally he would go after her himself, but in the process they infected him with some sort of agent that has incapacitated him and the healers have not been able to keep him awake for more than a couple hours at a time.
They sent him a ransom message with her ear asking for five million TGC. But after consulting with some advisors, he feels that if he pays they will just ask for more, and then they will likely kill her in the end anyways.
He wants his granddaughter back, as safely as possible, and hopefully not traumatized from the experience. He is willing to pay you the five million being asked for ransom if you can track down the kidnappers and bring Rayna home safely. If you bring the corpses of her kidnappers he will double the payment.
Whether he lives or dies, he wants to know she is home and safe so he has already put the payment into escrow, in case he passes before she is saved.
But there is another opportunity here. If you can find out what they infected him with and bring a sample of it back with you he will pay another five million. He hopes the doctors can examine it and figure out what was so powerful it shut him down.
But there is a problem. You see, I think she is working with them. Pyrrvyn is a pretty powerful being, not just politically, but also arcanely. I do not think a team skilled enough to take him out, would resort to mid level kidnapping.
So I am guessing that when you find her, she may not want to come back. Rayna is a tricky girl, she inherited some of her grandfather's power, and all of her mothers guile. She can talk a human out of its oxygen, to put it simply, so you will need to watch out for her.
After informing you of the basics, he begins outlining the details. The funds are to be sent via a private organic courier who does not have supernatural powers and delivered to an android at a location in the slug section of level 4 in four standard hours. After that the droid will make the needed transfers. In a situation like this the droid is normally programmed with only the basics and then wiped, so we were hoping if you could get there in time before the droid is wiped, maybe your techno-path could get some information on the transfer or on who programmed the droid.
So what do you say, are you up for the job?
