The group has a chance to stop at a small leyline rolling through the area. Perfect to top off the zone ranger, and rest and relax for a while. There is a hamburger hut, called the glowing white hut that uses the leyline to power its tw enhanced grilling machines and deep fryers. The propietor is a nice friendly elf named Slyn. For a few credits he serves up the group some tasty burgers and fries. Rest assured the pasture and orchard he has outside ensures these ingrediants are fresh and legit. He will also offer you each 150,000 credits for all the excess equipment you have ammased so far.
He smiles at the group, " Rest easy here at the Glowing White Hut." While other tw vehicles are parked out front and the place seems busy enough there is a table large enough for the party and semi seculded to encourage free speech and recollection of how you left New Del Rio. A small white fluffy dog seems to follow the heroes around while at this hut. It was sitting on the front stoop, and when you guys entered it wagged its tail and followed you in. If you let it, it will hope up on your lap and sit contently while you scratch it behind the ears.LebenOOC Comments
This is where we will do an interlude. You can choose your own direction and narrative spin. Players have full narative control over the npcs and the city of new del rio. But the interlude should be a story about how you left new del rio, and in the comfort of some tastey food you are regallimg the tale. My natural assumption is that you are heading to El Paso to meet up with a contact there whom can reportedly get you to the rangers. If you want to do something else, now would be the time to discuss it in character(and out if need be in the hangout chat). Please take a benny after concluding the interlude. Or if someone wants to trade the benny in for the white dog that is acceptable. It eats a lot!
Apologizing and getting out of the car he explained a little of his situation. “I am sorry, I was running hard from some monsters last night.
“Do you have showers for roadies here?” Seeing her nod, he settle up a payment he grabbed his gear and went in to clean up. Once he was feeling better he went in to the attached diner and checked out the menu and ordered up some food. These cows they kept tasted pretty good and are high enough in fat to provide energy for active traveling. After eating he head out to the truck to see what he can do with it.
A shame that truck was amazing. Sure it's beat up and feels like your ass is on fire while driving it, it's nothing pretty to look at, but damn it's like it never could die and those bastards ruined it. Tinkering on it for a couple hours he feels frustrated at not having luck and decides to go in have some coffee and think on his options for a bit.
Absentmindedly hearing some stories and chatter from the corner where a couple table had been pushed together for a large group of mercenaries when he notices, holy crap they have two True Atlanteans. From their stories he can tell they are more interested in killing monsters than they are in pay so he figures what the hell, may as well go say hi.
Strolling over to the table he smiles and says. “Hi, do you suppose you guys could help me out?” Nodding out the window towards his broken down heap. “I had a run in with some vampires and well after I stole their ride to run away they shot the hell out of it. I don’t want to disrespect this fine establishment so I would like to get it out of site. A couple minutes of your time could help me push it over that dune.” Suddenly he spots the little guy that could not have been seen from the other side of the room.
"Crap, am I in luck, are you a Techno-wizard? If so i would love it if you could help me get the beasts running again. I don't have much, but I could offer 200 credits, you could consider it a challenge."
